    New Leftist Line: Benghazi Was Chris Stevens' Fault, And He's Dead, So Let's Move On​


    —Ace

    Joe Klein offers a series of propositions, each more risible than the last, culminating with the claim that Chris Stevens didn't want any more security in Benghazi at all, he wanted to be "with the people in the streets." Read more:(Video: Scarborough vs Klein on Susan Rice (Spolier… does not end well for Klein) « The Greenroom)

    Whether he wanted the people to invite themselves over from the streets inside the compound, and then to the safehouse, bringing house-warming presents of mortars and sodomy is unknown.

    The security team's requests for additional security were repeatedly denied by the US State Department -- not Chris Stevens. Read more: (Email Shows State Department Rejecting Request of Security Team at US Embassy in Libya - ABC News) Chris Stevens was copied on one such email. If he wanted to object, and say "No I want to be 'in the streets with the people," he could have said so there and spared poor Hillary Clinton the embarrassment.

    Can you imagine the uproar if this had happened under the Bush Administration? There would have been rioting in the streets...

    In January 2011, during an appearance on CNN's Reliable Sources, Klein criticized the mainstream media for not handling complex issues properly, singling out MSNBC host Ed Schultz:

    “ I was on Ed Schultz's show to discuss Afghanistan. I was just back from there. It is the most complicated issue imaginable. And the guy writes down on a piece of paper "Get Out Now" and holds it up in front of the screen. That's so stupid and it's so unworthy... it's one of the reasons why people hold [pundits] in lower regard than they do lawyers.[25][26] ”

    In March 2008, Klein aroused controversy after making what many saw as an anti-Catholic remark: "I do believe there's something weird a few of our colleagues have [against Hillary Clinton]," he said. "They tend to be Roman Catholics, actually. People like Tim Russert, Chris Matthews, Maureen Dowd." He later apologized. Others, such as media critic Bob Somerby, defended Klein's comment as accurate

    If double-standards and hypocrisies didn't exist the left would be silent.

    Of course they want this tragic debacle to go away - but it ain't! To blame Chris Stevens is as about as appalling as it gets! The Obama administration is soley to blame for the tragedy, and for the coverup!

    When Reagan lost 241 military men one night in Lebannon, the uproar was deafening, well maybe not deafening. In fact, how many even remember the loss of so many marines killed on the peace keeping mission? Reagan had been warned it was unsafe? Maybe the invasion of Grenada a few days later took some of the steam out of the protests over Lebannon. Those things happen in that area of the world.

    Except for the fact that under Bubba Clinton's watch all four terrorist pilots trained in the U.S., That was while America had ungone attacks at WTC #1, South African Embassies Bombings, Khobar Towers, and the USS Cole. But hey, Let's blame Bush for it all. Never mind the incompetence of Clinton and his hog tying of our intelligence agencies up with red tape.
    BTW you forgot to mention the KIA in Afghanistan under Oblamer.

    Not about 9-11, Bush, Clinton or anyone but Barry and his State Department.

    BTW Bush didn't allow anyone to die. The dirtbags who flew the planes did that.

    Clinton had the same info and passed it to Bush. Clinton had that info longer than Bush did. I guess Clinton should have shut the whole country down on vague warnings. I doubt the American people would have put up with that for long.

    Whatever floats your boat.
