In response to WhatDoYouWantNow's comment:
So now that they've realized how idiotic it was to claim "Obama lied", they now want to Monday Quarterback his and the military's decisions on whether to commit troops and risk killing a crapload of civilians instead of the terrorists.
In response to tvoter's unAmerican defecation: "This was brought on by the admin for putting out a story that wasnt true for 14 days, stalling and not releasing all the unclassified information immediately."
9/12/12. First interview after Benghazi attacks, regarding them.
OBAMA: "You're right that this is not a situation that was -- exactly the same as what happened in Egypt and my suspicion is that there are folks involved in this who were looking to target Americans from the start."
OBAMA: " And then last night, we learned the news of this attack in Benghazi.
As Americans, let us never, ever forget that our freedom is only sustained because there are people who are willing to fight for it, to stand up for it, and in some cases, lay down their lives for it. Our country is only as strong as the character of our people and the service of those both civilian and military who represent us around the globe.
No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for."
OBAMA: "A couple of days ago, for four Americans were killed in an attack on our diplomatic post in Libya... So what I want all of you to know is that we are going to bring those who killed our fellow Americans to justice. I want people around the world to hear me: To all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished."
What a stupid and disgusting conservative liar.
Yes on day two he said act of terror, and then he and his team tried to walk it back for the next two weeks until they couldn't.
Now it comes out that we had people on the ground giving live feed back, we had at least one drone in the air, we had the CIA Annex wanting help in terms of people and missles to strike targets were being laser painted by our people on the ground. What a cluster... no wonder they wanted it to go away.
