    On Bengazi: (T)epublicans are once again, like bush and company many uses, using Very Tragic Incidents of Fallen U.S. citizens, showing what little they care about same, as Political Fodder, propaganda, and the romney camp fully embraces same, none knowing the intelligence of directly after or in the coming days and weeks about!

    Piecing together White House response to Benghazi

    October 19, 2012  - Shortly after President Barack Obama spoke to State Department employees about the attack on the consulate, he sat down with "60 Minutes" for a previously scheduled interview.

    It had been about 14 hours since the attack, and the president said he did not believe it was due simply to mob violence.

    "You're right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt," Obama said, referring to protests sparked by an anti-Islam film. "And my suspicion is that there are folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start."

    Shortly after that, Obama stepped into the Rose Garden and spoke of the killing of four Americans as if it were a terrorist attack.

    "No act of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation," Obama said in his Rose Garden remarks.

    They are also attempting to 'justify' the horrendous very intolerant video, produced by their so called 'christian' friends as righteous, that sparked the growth of even more hatreds towards us, adding to the already huge growth of hatreds, by our actions, of this past decade plus!!

      That while everyone, on a extreme side center political? party, are screamin about the State Department and Administration, and the mitt camp has embraced this as their 9/11 moment to use as it will, None are mentioning the CIA and their involvement in all this. Those killed with the Ambassador and most around him were Operatives of, had to be, as they were the ones collecting intelligence and analyzing and the CIA doesn't give up what they're doing often if ever unless caught, even to the Presidents they work under!

      And you can bet, just like many times before, that way down the road it will come out that all was under CIA control, not State, but again that will be far down the road and few will even pay attention as the damage being done by the tepubs now, like oh so much, will have already created the blowback!!
