    Get the word out!! Twitter, Facebook and everywhere!

    The republican Congress is partly to blame for cutting the security budget and overall budget to the State Dept. As a consequence of the republican congress not giving Obama what he requested security was in a state of flux with downsizing, shuffling personnel, etc.[-X While all repubs are blaming Obama, will they also lay the blame on the republican Congress? Nah....

    That's a pretty lame argument but then again O is still trying to peddle a grainy video as the cause.

    So, while Congress is assigning blame, they don't share in it? How convenient!

    Some things are so dumb all you can do is sigh in weariness when people try to use them to win arguments.

    You just made them look really smart.

    Remember folks, NOTHING is the fault of the Dear Leader

    I would bet this was Bush's fault also

    Wow!! The republicans syncopants on this forum are out to lunch and amazingly hypocritical!

    Obama lied as they would have you believe but Congress holds no responsiblity. ONLY Obama!?? Amazing!

    I know this will be met with non-answers and cutsie posters by the right but...

    The CIA intercepted chatter about the attacks saying the attack was spontaneous based on the protests at the Cairo embassy which were about the offensive video.

    Then somewhere in time after that, they intercepted some more chatter saying the attacks were planned by a local militia with al Qaeda's help.

    Therefore, because of the lag between intercepts, the president was given incomplete information and it took some days for everything to be pieced together about the possible militia and al Qaeda connection.

    I had posted a really long informational post about this when my internet went down and I lost everything. I will try to post links and more detail later but right now I have to deal with my ebay auctions which I also was in the process of posting and lost them all before getting them online! Grrrrrr...

    But the bottom line is that is sounds pretty much like what I suspected. Lagging communication and intercepts. If people are objective they can see that and they should know that all intelligence information is incomplete and it has to be pieced together often over a period of time.

    It WAS NOT deliberate lying!

    And I trust Hillary completely!

    I know now all her fans now don't like her and believe the propaganda the intelligence committee is putting out and their letters with questions that can't yet be answered.

    In addition, like I posted above, the republican Congress cut $300 million from the State Dept.'s security budget so the State Dept. was in the process of re-shuffling personnel and re-assigning when this took place.

    Now, I'd like State Dept. for $500, Alex!
