    Say what you will about Bush. You'd know damn well what we thought about the attacks by now. I don't believe Obama has even personally called the Benghazi attack a terrorist attack yet. He was too busy apologizing.

    Apparently when pressed by the Senate, a person in his admin finally used the word. Oh that's big of them.

    When asked by spiegel why she did not use the term terrorism in Janet Napolitano's first report to Congress in 2009 -

    I believe the above gives a pretty good indication why not.
    Interview with Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano: 'Away From the Politics of Fear' - SPIEGEL ONLINE

    I think it has to do with that touchy, feely thing this administration has going on. Sort of like Clinton telling Libya how appalled she was, after all we had done to help liberate them. Sounded like me scolding my kids when they were younger.

    No one is one the same page in this administration. Maybe they should have some meetings! And tell the president it WAS A TERRORIST ATTACK!

    Check out my new thread before the left wingers drive it off the page. It turns out that the leader of the attack on the Benghazi compound was a former Gitmo AQ prisoner and ever worse a known rebel leader.

    Yes, one of those rebels we turned the country over to.

    Not surprised. According to Breitbart, who doesn't name its source so take that as you will... they were using unarmed Brits for security in order to create a "low profile". Now, I seriously doubt that Obama's pet media poodles will ask about it, but Republicans in Congress will.
