    Another deflection and decoy by this inept, incompetent administration. Their lies have become so transparent that now they have to be in full damage control mode.

    US planning to attack terror networks in Benghazi?
    POSTED AT 9:21 AM ON OCTOBER 3, 2012 BY ED MORRISSEY

    Now that the Obama administration has belatedly admitted that the sacking of our consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist attack — and not, as they claimed for nearly two weeks, a particularly lively movie review — now what? The New York Times reports this morning that the US has begun preparing for a military attack on the “militants” involved in the terrorist attack, but that may run into some complications:

    The United States is laying the groundwork for operations to kill or capture militants implicated in the deadly attack on a diplomatic mission in Libya, senior military and counterterrorism officials said Tuesday, as the weak Libyan government appears unable to arrest or even question fighters involved in the assault.

    The top-secret Joint Special Operations Command is compiling so-called target packages of detailed information about the suspects, the officials said. Working with the Pentagon and the C.I.A., the command is preparing the dossiers as the first step in anticipation of possible orders from President Obama to take action against those determined to have played a role in the attack on a diplomatic mission in the eastern city of Benghazi that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three colleagues three weeks ago.

    Let’s pause for a moment here. If this is so “top-secret,” then how can the NYT be reporting on it? Simple: the administration is leaking this in the desperate attempt to look like they’re back on top of this situation. The Obama administration has discovered what happens when the White House lies, and lies badly, about terrorist attacks and their preparation for those attempts, and now they want to undo some of the damage by looking tough.

    Gee, I hope they get the approval of the Libyans for this. I'd hate for us to act militarily on Libyan soil without getting permission first. You know, like the Obama administration said they did not have so they did not send in anyone in the immediate aftermath of the attacks?

    This clusterfuck is getting worse and worse for Obama.

    So....PLANNING an attack is now a bad thing? Or is it just because it is Obama? Perhaps if Bush had done a little more planning, his strategery for the invasion and occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan would have executed better? Or perhaps, not at all....

    I forgot that your comprehension skills suck. What was the point of this thread? To illustrate Obama's "slow" response? Did I miss something?

    President Obama's reputation concerning taking the fight to the terrorists is excellent. He has repeatedly demonstrated that killing Americans is a good way to have your life ended adruptly. He has also demonstrated caution in not moving before he has full information. Were I among the perpretators at Benghazi, I would have my will made out and signed.

    One might also note that the Libyan people seem to be with us on this one, to the extent of driving the extremists out of that city.

    Which apparently pales in comparison to Romney's "shoot first, aim later" philosophy, at least according to "conservatives"....

    Yes, the attack will be by way of money bombs.

    IF it was true that the Libyan people drove the extremists out of Benghazi, then why is it too dangerous for the FBI to go in to conduct an investigation? It's not too dangerous for CNN to go in and muck up the crime scene removing evidence, it's just too dangerous for the FBI.

    Either it is too dangerous to conduct an investigation or this royal regime has no intention of investigating and is looking for cover.
