    Hey, I'm going to stir the pot here. I've been seeing a lot on facebook and here lately of Obama and the state department ignoring and denying assistance to Benghazi. According to many posts and links the information is that we had troops that could have thwarted the attack less than an hour away and things of the sort. Also they had a live feed where they just watched our people die and did nothing.

    From what I can tell so far, the only people reporting on this is faux news. Now, there have been things that Faux news reports on that other news and investigative reporters pick up on and also report on it. However, after a few days of Faux news anchors reporting on this, there still only seems to be references to Faux news original "investigation and reports."

    To me, I don't see how anyone could sit there and watch it and deny assistance so I simply don't believe what faux news is reporting. It seems like they took something and put it out there without any truth to it in order to confuse and try to swing undecided voters right before their election. It seems like this is there golden ticket to the presidency. However, there hasn't been any other credible reporting on it besides fox news.

    Anyway, does anyone have any credible reports besides something that references the orginal fox news investigation or emails. I did some searching and only found one article by (get this) yahoo news that had the CIA lady denying anyone every denying assitance or telling people to stand down.

    I am sure NewsMax, or WorldNewsDaily or Brietbart will soon has an expose of how Obama personally led Al Qaeda terrorists via intra dimensional transporter into Libya while giving China all the plans for our super secret nuclear vaporizers while eating Borscht with Putin.

    Good stuff.

    Fox news NEEDS to stay on this.. Because there are questions even FOX isn't asking..

    Like how did it happen that DAYS after the attack -- CNN was able to walk into into our bombed out consulate and pick up the Ambassador's diary off the floor?? WTF was keeping the site secure for an official investigation if the PRESS is trampling the scene and collecting evidence before the GOVT does?

    DOD confirms there was an UNARMED drone overhead for surveillance. A Lot of the "allegations" are reasonable and confirmed. If NBC and MSNBC wants to take a pass at this story --- there are others who don't..

    Tru, that's what I'm talking about. Fox news has a bad rep even for me as throwing out garbage and calling it factual. I'd like to see someone else take up these claims and investigate them. I am afraid that this is going to just wither away until after the election. BS

    Fox does a dam good at straight journalism.. You don't like Hannity or big-mouth O'Riley -- don't watch that crap.. I don't.

    But the news bureau is WAAAAYY more on the ball than other networks..

    I'll tear anyone who lies to me to shreds.. And I hold a grudge. So I'm not a kool-aid drinker.

    This is a prime example of you and your buds just not liking the story that Fox is clinging to.. PERHAPS it's politically motivated. But with questions like the one I pointed out above -- I'm CERTAIN the Obama Admin lied to me ---- And --- like I said ---- I'm pissed...

    Fox isn't making this stuff up, they're just reporting information as they become aware of it. They don't have to make stuff up, the facts are damning enough as it is. The MSM is supposed to be critical of both political parties not just the repubs, but they aren't. They should be asking the same questions Fox is asking, and covering the same events and information as it comes in, but mostly they're not doing that. Here's some real questions for you, answer 'em if you can:

    It is a fact that the Benghazi consulate has had a lot of incidents leading up to the attack, more than enough to keep the 16 man security team they had there in place. But in August the security team was pulled out. Why? It wasn't a financial problem, a senior State Dept testified before Congress that money wasn't an issue. The leader of that security team requested an extension for his team to remain there, and so did the ambassador himself. This is fact, not supposition; but repeated requests were denied. I want to know who denied it and why.

    From the first few minutes people at the State Dept knew the Consulate was under attack, and they knew there was never any demonstration over a video. Within 24 hours of the attack the CIA station chief sends a report to his HQ in Langley advising them that it was a terrorist attack. But then 3 days later a talking points memo appears on capitol hill suggesting that a demonstration over the video may have been the cause of the attack. Who wrote that memo? On what intel was it based?

    For at least a couple of weeks various people associated with the Obama Admin pushed the demonstration/video story; how could they not know by then it was not true? Did somebody cherrypick which information they would use and which they would discard? Who made those decisions? Are you going to tell me the President of the United States does not know within minutes what the fuck happened? Our consulate is attacked and our ambassador is murdered, and he doesn't know the truth? Sorry, I ain't buying it.

    This already getting too long so I'll bypass the other questions and just focus on this: when something like this happens, we should be told the plain truth. By the President. To this day he has not done so. He feigns outrage and insult when he himself could have and should have held a press conference or delivered an address to tell the story. 6 weeks after the attack, are you telling me we still don't know? Why do we have to wait until the election is over, why shouldn't we be told the whole story as soon as it became available? I gotta say, it smacks of a coverup. It feels like a stonewalling job, delay and say nothing until after Nov 6. That really sucks man. That ain't why we elected him in the first place.

    That what some Dem Senator said on a talking head show yesterday...something to the effect "There'll be a full investigation after the election!" Obama does not want one right now. The MSM does not want one right now (because it hurts their boy, Obama) the Obama worshipers don't care if it ever gets investigated.

    Obama is in hog heaven with this recent storm to deal with and take attention away from Benghazi.

    Obama is a despicable coward and a liar! He is a disgrace to the office of POTUS!

    I posted a link to an AP story that you are, obviously, ignoring.
