    Fox News, originally reported that the CIA was issued a "Stand Down Order" by the Administration during the attack on the Benghazi Consulate. Fox News, never declared where it got that information, other than to say they had a "source."

    h.t.t.p://w.w.w.youtube.com/embed/G0sA4P2CPgQ


    Tonight, CNN reports that the Central Intelligence Agency itself says that no "Stand Down Order" was ever given by anyone at the Administration and/or the State Department.

    h.t.t.p://cnn.com/video/?/video/bestoftv/2012/11/02/exp-erin-cia-releases-new-benghazi-timeline-peter-brookes-nick-burns.cnn

    Aside from the fact that I knew the Fox News "Exclusive Report" had been created out of thin air when it concluded that the "CIA called for Air Support" (for which we simply have no protocol for whatsoever within our military relative to the CIA), the entire storyline put forth by Fox News, never made any sense from the very beginning.

    What does this do in the minds of those who rely upon Fox News for their information about what's going on in the world, and what does this do to the reputation of Fox News itself? Can you realistically trust anything they say at this point, given their willingness to lie in broad daylight, about something so important relative to the trust that people have in the President of the United States and the Commander In Chief?

    No "Stand Down Order" at all was ever given to anyone. Yet, for days now the country was being told the such an order actually existed. Should any News Organization that lies with reckless abandon and willful intent, be subject to Civil and/or Criminal charges of some kind?

    That charge made by Fox News, was morphed into an entire theory about the reasons WHY the "Stand Down Order" was given, including an assertion that the United States was engaged in shipping Libyan WMD into Turkey, for use in some kind of Coupe attempt against Assad in Syria. All of that was predicated on the CIA having received a "Stand Down Order" from the President, which we now know was a complete and utter lie told by Fox News.

    Is this the future template for Presidential Elections? Say anything to get your candidate elected, no matter how absolutely deceitful and fraudulent what you are saying turns out to be? Who supports that kind of election process?

    We are to believe this administration when they have been proven to lie time and again?

    Sorry, you've been duped.

    btw.....FoxNews does not have a candidate. They are not part and parcel of the corrupted main stream media which has been proven to be in the Obama campaign.

    Oh did they forget to add in your report that this was just a "spontaneous attack" because of a video?

    OP: Yea, the government would never lie.

    But let's talk about a lie we know about for sure. We were told that the Benghazi was a riot gone wrong. Americans died and we got lied to. UNACCEPTABLE.

    Read all about it...Obama spins and lies!!!!


    Time line of lies!

    Obama's Benghazi Lies - Home

    Destroys Obama's case. It was NEVER ABOUT A FUCKING VIDEO.

    On the 12th he was talking about the protest when he said terrorized.

    Susan Rice said on the 16th that this wasn't a pre-planned attack. LIES

    On the 18th Obama went on the letterman show and blamed our first amendment for the attack. LIES!!!

    If the terrorized was supposed to mean a terrorist attack. Well, Obama sure inserted his foot in his ass.

    Clinton on the 21st was the first to say it was a Terrorist attack. SPIN!

    Obama on the view on the 25th said it was about the fucking video! Spin some more!!!

    Biden blatantly lied about Chris Stevens wanting more Security
    The Fact Checker


    “We weren’t told they wanted more security there. We did not know they wanted more security.”

    — Biden, speaking of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya

    Biden’s bold statement was directly contradicted by State Department officials just this week, in testimony before a congressional panel and in unclassified cables released by a congressional committee.

    “All of us at post were in sync that we wanted these resources,” said Eric Nordstrom, the top regional security officer in Libya earlier this year. A Utah national guardsman who led a security team, Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, said: “We felt great frustration that those requests were ignored or just never met.”



    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CIxjz5wEcF0]September 12, 2012 - President Obama Speaks on Libya Attacks that killed US Ambassador Chris Stevens - YouTube[/ame]

    @ 5:00-6:20 you can hear the context in which he mentioned terrorism, Romney was correct in his assertation as, in context, Obama was referring to terrorism in general and not specifically the attack
    ====

    Candy wasn't even right here as Obama said "terror" in the context of the protest.

    Yet we learn today that Stevens was begging for months for security??? WTF is wrong with the Obama Admin. If you leftist had any honor you wouldn't vote for Obama.
