The administration’s appalling, appalling failures on Libya

October 10, 2012

This timeline is shocking:

April 6: IED thrown over the fence of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi.

April 11: Gun battle erupts between armed groups two-and-a-half miles from the U.S. Consulate, including rocket-propelled grenades.

April 27: Two South African contractors are kidnapped by armed men, released unharmed.

May 1: Deputy Commander of U.S. Embassy Tripoli’s Local Guard Force is carjacked, beaten, and detained by armed youth.

May 1: British Embassy in Tripoli is attacked by a violent mob and set on fire. Other NATO embassies attacked as well.

And so on. My miniature schnauzer would have realized that the US consulate needed more security.

    Obama’s scandals are much, much, worse than Nixon’s…
    The same abuse of power with a an ever growing body count. Fast and Furious, and now this.

    Where is the wonderful Media, wanting to be the modern day Woodward and Bernstein?

    Complicit, as always….

      Our wonderful media is hiding under their desks trying to cover for their messiah.

    This is a disgrace. Complete failure of leadership.

    A real President would have come clean and offered leadership. Something like “There was a security breakdown, and we are taking measures to make sure it will never happen again.”

    Instead, and even worse than the attack, we have an administration that is comfortable with creating a bogus cover story and brazenly pushing it on all the Sunday news shows.

    OUTRAGEOUS, I am ashamed of our government.

      The bastard should be tried for treason.

      There’s damn sure enough evidence to convict that marxist asshole!

    Obama is a disgrace!
    What an outrageous liar, and what a contemptable fraud Obama has become.

    Anybody who supports that lying, treasonous dog should be deported immediately!
    Obama is sickening but even more sickening are the stupid fools who still back that fraud.

    Obama lied and our ambassador died.

      “Obama lied and our ambassador died.” Plus, Obama can’t deflect the blame to someone else, like he’s done all his life, and throw Hillary “under the bus”.

        I think there was some under-the-bussing yesterday. The state department’s report. Hillary said last week that the report would be out in November (After the election, of course). Now, it’s out, and it includes the claim that the state department never claimed there was any sort of demonstration. Did Hillary just throw Obama under the bus?

        The only flaw with that theory that I can see is that Hillary made on-camera statements regarding the “protestors” lie being true. So, maybe the rank-and-file at State decided to toss both their boss, Hillary, and Obama under the bus?

        Also, let’s never forget that this isn’t the first time Obama has blatantly and knowingly lied about a terrorist attack: the FT. Hood Massacre. He still claims that wasn’t terrorism, yet the perp had been in contact with terrorists, and then did the attack screaming “allah Akbar”.

    They hoped they could just eke it out till the election was over.
    And would the media cooperate? Of course!

  7. […] Sixth somewhat related attack this year. State, CIA, UN: none of the stories are consistent and add up. It’s like Watergate with dead people and the media couldn’t care less. HT: HA […]

    The Obama-Clinton State Department motto —

    We won’t defend our America’s embassy’s, and we won’t let foreigners do it for us either!

      The Obama-Clinton State Department motto —

      We won’t defend our America’s embassy’s, but we’ll fight to the death for Big Bird!!!!!

      • Brent on October 11, 2012 at 10:08 am

        Big bird is one of the 1% so why are the marxist fighting to save him?

        Frickin’ Sesame-Street production earns like 1/3rd of a billion dollars so why do they need millions and millions of our tax dollars? Oh right, so PBS can slowly become the next MSNBC arm of the state-ran media pumping out their failed liberal propaganda.

        Liberals are just a bunch of frauds and con artists. Stupid bastards.
