    GOP pounces after news of CIA cable on Libya raid | General Headlines | Comcast

    Sensing a moment of political vulnerability on national security, Republicans pounced Friday on disclosures that President Barack Obama's administration could have known early on that militants, not angry protesters, launched the attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya.

    Within 24 hours of the deadly attack, the CIA station chief in Libya reported to Washington that there were eyewitness reports that the attack was carried out by militants, officials told The Associated Press. But for days, the Obama administration blamed it on an out-of-control demonstration over an American-made video ridiculing Islam's Prophet Muhammad.

    Paul Ryan, the Republican vice presidential nominee, led Friday's charge.

    "Look around the world, turn on your TV," Ryan said in an interview with WTAQ radio in the election battleground state of Wisconsin. "And what we see in front of us is the absolute unraveling of the Obama administration's foreign policy."

    Americans want to give this loser four more years, sad, very sad indeed....

    If he's taking responsibility why hasn't he stepped down? He's a disgrace.

    Could have know? I think it's pretty clear the did know, and they didn't then they are Incompetent Buffoons. It's absolutely clear they knew, and attempted to muddy the waters as to what really happened and why.

    there were demonstrations at the time and the attack has been attributed to the video.

    Because of Obama's weakness this protest spread nearly world wide. Our embassy in the congo had a black flag on top of it.
