    Of course it was…
    Rep. Peter King (R-NY) doubled-down today and called for UN Ambassador Susan Rice to resign for deceit and/or incompetence. King also accused the Obama Administration of deceiving the American public on the Benghazi terror attack for political gain.


    “Either Ambassador Rice was deliberately misleading the American people or she showed and demonstrated such a lack of knowledge and sophistication that she shouldn’t hold that position anymore. The entire administration has handled this wrong from the start. They’ve misinformed the American people, misinformed the world. And, she was their spokeswoman. She showed such a lack of knowledge and sophistication that she shouldn’t hold that position anymore… Virtually everything she said was wrong.”

    all of it and video at site

    Good for him... their feet need to be continually held to the furnace!

    I am sick of them lying to us, and the left just ignoring it.

    Why is it the media isn't holding this administrations feet to the fire on this?
    Back when we had real journalists they would be all over a story like this.

    What's the scandal, again?

    I ask because it's SOP for law enforcement to withhold official judgment on a suspicious death even as they investigate it as a possible homicide right from the beginning.

    So too with the attack on our consulate. What possible good could it do to come out publicly and declare it a terrorist attack (and possibly attribute it to whom, exactly?) without the evidence to support that contention? The US Gov't would have egg on it's face, internationally, if it made that claim and it later turned out to not be true.

    And if you don't believe that, recall all the fall out from our declaration prior to the Iraq War that Saddam actually had WMDs and we knew exactly where they were, thereby justifying our 'preemptive war.' In the war against Islamic extremism, the US is not served well by throwing around unsubstantiated accusations that we may later have to retract. Let al Qaeda make those kinds of mistakes. That hurts THEIR credibility in the Muslim world. We don't need our credibility any more tarnished than it has been by a series of screw ups from the Iraq War intelligence fiasco to Abu Ghraib.

    Not when you hold to the story 2 weeks later. That's all that needs to be said.

    I don't see that 2 weeks represents some kind of number that passed the point of credibility in some way. If the administration was trying to conceal something, why not continue saying that it wasn't a terrorist attack? Certainly they must understand that reversing course on the determination that it was terrorism (as opposed to a spontaneous attack) was going to be exploited by the Republicans, especially in the final stage of the election. So, what did the administration have to gain by doing so other than to set the record straight after more facts came to light? Keep in mind that the investigation is taking place overseas in a place where English is not the first language. And my guess is that the US is likely very dependent on Libyan personnel and expertise. It's not as if we can crack the whip with them. We needed/need their help, and we're playing on their turf.

    and what possible good could come of blaming it on a film in which you don't know yet, either? Works both ways, ya know. And the film could be much more damaging as it brings to light something most over there didn't even know existed.
