Considering the attackers took about 100 casualties, I think the security arrangements at the embassy and the CIA annex were expected to be good enough. These guys really got their ass shot off from elevated positions by ex-seals. They managed to get a couple mortars through and kill the ambassador. More than 30 embassy personnel went home the next morning.

You can't go hide under the bed every time somebody makes a threat. I would call some of the things that happened a mistake and a misjudgment. People get to make mistakes. Really negligent? I don't see it.

The State Department didn't think the embassy was in severe peril and thought the security personnel would be good enough. And they almost were.

Apparently not for Ambassador Stevens.

Obama and the Mainstream Media

We will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act in Benghazi, and make no mistake justice will be done.
- Barack Hussein Obama II over a year ago



We're investigating exactly what happened but my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice.
- Barack Hussein Obama II over a year ago



I'm just surprised at how many people bought it.
- Congressman Trey Gowdy


  • Can you tell me why Chris Stevens was in Benghazi the night that he was killed? Do you know?
  • Do you know why we were the last flag flying in Benghazi?
  • Do you know why requests for additional security were denied?
  • Do you know why an ambassador asking for more security, days and weeks before he was murdered, and those requests went unheeded?
  • Do you know why no assets were deployed during the siege?
  • Do you know whether the President called any of our allies and said can you help, we have men under attack?
  • Do any of you know why Susan Rice was picked?
  • Why was Susan Rice on the five Sunday talk shows?
  • Do you know the origin of this mythology that it was spawned as a spontaneous reaction to a video?

1. He was the ambassador. Where would he be?
2. Did you mean Al-Queda flags were flying everywhere? Al Queda put them up.
3. Security was considered adequate. This was a mistake, not negligent.
4. Because he was afraid. Evidently his assessment was prophetic, But it might not have been. That is: Al Queda had more forces than we knew about and they got lucky, This is if you call getting 100 guys killed to take out one ambassador lucky.
5. I was too late. By morning, the embassy personnel were being evacuated and they were cleaning up stragglers at the CIA annex,
6. Canada... could we borrow a cup of milk and some bullets?
7. I like Susan Rice. Anybody that pisses the Russians off as much as she does is ok in my book. Obama and Hillary tried to shift the blame to Rice. It didn't stick.
8. Rice was explaining what happened?


9. THAT... we can blame on Obama and it's just bullshit. Evidently, given the precision and force of the Al-Queda attack, it was planned long before this video. Even if it wasn't, a video is not an excuse for terrorism.

Obama makes excuses for anyone who isn't white. Somehow we've got it coming.

It's just like "my son" Trayvon who gets an excuse to pound the neighborhood watch guy for looking at him cockeyed. Some asshole makes an anti-islam video and it somehow matters. Do I get any understanding if I turn into a terrorist for 10,000 anti-Christian videos? Do I get a pass if a black guy looks at me cockeyed?

"My son" who gets kicked out of school for smoking dope and then gets stoned and goes and beats up the neighborhood watch. Those poor Muslim terrorists.. somebody made an anti-islam video. It must need "white man's guilt"

I don't usually go along with Fox very often, but I think Keith Ablow has the President nailed.
