    In your zeal to indict the administration for something, you've lost sight of the fact that the Libyan people retaliated themselves against the perpetrators, storming the Ansar al Sharia headquarters the day after the event.  50 militants were arrested, and the group was forced to disband and disarm.  I'm sure this is all part of the current investigation.

    Not the issue.  The issue for us, for our government is:

    Who pushed the video lie (excuse, misinformation, whatever)?

    It seems that the righties are more upset that Rice said the attacks were prompted by the video than they are about the attacks.

    Why is saying the attacts were caused by the video such a burr in the sides of the Righties?

    Remember when Tillman was killed by US troops but the Pentagon told everyone he was killed by the Taliban and died a hero?  How come the righties didn't start thread after thread about that?

    What is "the video lie".  Post a quote or exerpt from a transcript.  Not just a generalization.

    There was a video.  It did incite violence throughout the region, including Cairo.  Members of Ansar al Sharia have alluded to it (not bin Ladin) in interviews.  What, exactly, is the video lie?

    I don't want the truth?  I know what the truth is.  4 Americans were killed in Benghazi by insurgents.  It may or may not be linked to the video, but whether it was or wasn't is immaterial.  (And by linked, I mean the attack was coordinated with the video going viral.)

    Oh, and the only way the Ambassador doesn't die in the attack is if he isn't there.  Once the insurgents decided to attack, he was dead along with the other Consulate empolyee.  The former seals died because the insurgents got lucky with a mortar round.

    Rice read the talking points she was given by the intelligence group.

    Anything else you want to know?

    You know who else is in on "the video lie"?  Ansar al Sharia ...

     

     

    Abu Khattala said that on the night of September 11, he received a phone call telling him that an attack on the U.S. consulate was in progress and that he then went to the scene.

    "I arrived at the street parallel to the consulate and waited for other brigade leaders to show me the way to the buildings," he said. "I arrived at the scene just like the others did -- to see what was happening."

    Abu Khattala denied sanctioning or leading the attack, but said he understood the anger which fuelled it.

    A crudely made movie that mocks the Prophet Mohammad, filmed in California and circulated on the Internet, has helped generate violent protests across the Islamic world.

    U.S. officials have said they believe militants used the protests as cover to carry out an armed assault on the U.S. diplomatic compound and a building that was supposed to be a safe house.

    "The film which insulted the Prophet was a direct attack on our values and if America wants good relations with the Muslim world it needs to do so with respect," Abu Khattala said. "If they want to do it with force, they will be met with force."

    He said that after he arrived at the consulate, he began to help direct traffic with other militia leaders.

    "People were crashing into each other because of the chaos and there was sporadic shooting," he said.

    Abu Khattala said he called the commanders of Benghazi's security forces -- the February 17 brigade and the Supreme Security Committee -- and told them to remove their cars and people from the consulate to avoid clashes.

    "Soon after I made my calls, one of the guards told me that four men were detained in a building inside the compound who had been shooting at the demonstrators," he said.

    There were only 700 views of "the video" at the time of the protests.  That's an awful lot of protests for a video so far down the youtube food chain.

    Face it, the video was dredged up as an excuse.

    Besides, what do you call people who protest and burn down empassies based on a movie trailer other than savages?

    Our government used this video as the excuse for the Bengazi attack.  Who made that call?

    This is all pure garbage.

    The only ones pushing this issue are people with a personal grudge against the president, like Sen. McCain.

    It is devoid of substance.  The government "lying" is not the issue; nor is the lie itself...

    ...the only issue is the politics of grandstanding and feigned outrage and making mountains out of molehills.  Period.

    More mis-information - the video was presented by Al Nas, an Egyptian TV station on September 9.  That's when the idea of protesting 9/11 took hold.  By 9/10 major newspapers throughout the Middle-East were reporting on the next day's protests.

    First of all, what difference does it make?  Secondly, I understand that the reason they put forth the video was because they wanted to allow the insurgents to believe the US intelligence thought it was tied to the video.

    You're really sticking to your 700 views narrative?  So McClatchy is in on the coverup now, too?

     

     

    The scene aired on al Nas blurred the face of the woman, in accord with Salafist beliefs that a man should not engage with an uncovered woman who is not his wife. But it left the man’s image clear, even though Muslims are forbidden to make any attempt to recreate Muhammad.

    “What is this stupidity?” Abdullah asked, after the station aired the clip, concluding later that the creators of the film “want to inflame Egypt.”

    Abdullah asked if anyone had apologized for creating such a film. His co-host responded, “An apology is not enough. I want them convicted.”

    That same day, the Mufti of Al Azhar University, the chief source of Sunni Islamic thought in the Arab world, condemned the clip for “insulting the prophet” and noting it was produced by “Copts living abroad.”

    Facebook pages started appearing, urging Islamists and youth to protest Tuesday, the 11th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks. Jones had called for putting Muhammad on trial that day in a web message, which is why, protest organizers said, they scheduled it for that day. Calls started coming into the U.S. embassy as well, catching everyone there by surprise.

    “People were writing to us asking what the role of the U.S. government has in this video. What are you going to do? Who produced this?” said one U.S. official at the embassy who did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly. “Our initial response was: What video?”

    But as the embassy learned about the planned protests and the video’s content, officials there said, they immediately recognized the potential problem. They called leaders of the groups calling for the protest and apologized for the film, according to recipients of the call. They told them the film does not represent how Americans see Islam. In a statement posted on the embassy’s web page, they condemned the video.

    But it was too late. Nader Bakkar, a spokesman for the conservative Islamist Nour Party and one of those who received a phone call from the embassy in the hours before the scheduled protest, said there was no going back. It was now a religious duty to defend the prophet, he said.

     

    On Monday, a day before the scheduled protest, newspapers reported on the upcoming protest, saying it was called because Americans must pay for allowing such a movie to be produced. Major newspapers wrote about the Coptic church disavowing the movie. Islamic groups called for those who produced the movie to be punished. Bakker told another the newspaper, al Masry al Youm, there should be a law that forbids insulting the prophet. “This is the least” that needs to happen, he said.

    By mid afternoon Tuesday, protesters started gathering in front of the embassy, chanting against the United States. By 5 p.m. some scaled the 12-foot wall protecting the compound, set a ladder against the flagpole and brought down the American flag. They replaced it with an Islamic one. A protester handed the American flag to those sitting on top of the wall, and they began tearing at it. Whatever remained of the flag was eventually burned.

    Five hours later, in neighboring Libya, attackers launched an assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens, tech officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

Jones had called for putting Muhammad on trial that day in a web message, which is why, protest organizers said, they scheduled it for that day. Calls started coming into the U.S. embassy as well, catching everyone there by surprise.

    “People were writing to us asking what the role of the U.S. government has in this video. What are you going to do? Who produced this?” said one U.S. official at the embassy who did not want to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly. “Our initial response was: What video?”

    But as the embassy learned about the planned protests and the video’s content, officials there said, they immediately recognized the potential problem. They called leaders of the groups calling for the protest and apologized for the film, according to recipients of the call. They told them the film does not represent how Americans see Islam. In a statement posted on the embassy’s web page, they condemned the video.

    But it was too late. Nader Bakkar, a spokesman for the conservative Islamist Nour Party and one of those who received a phone call from the embassy in the hours before the scheduled protest, said there was no going back. It was now a religious duty to defend the prophet, he said.

     

    On Monday, a day before the scheduled protest, newspapers reported on the upcoming protest, saying it was called because Americans must pay for allowing such a movie to be produced. Major newspapers wrote about the Coptic church disavowing the movie. Islamic groups called for those who produced the movie to be punished. Bakker told another the newspaper, al Masry al Youm, there should be a law that forbids insulting the prophet. “This is the least” that needs to happen, he said.

    By mid afternoon Tuesday, protesters started gathering in front of the embassy, chanting against the United States. By 5 p.m. some scaled the 12-foot wall protecting the compound, set a ladder against the flagpole and brought down the American flag. They replaced it with an Islamic one. A protester handed the American flag to those sitting on top of the wall, and they began tearing at it. Whatever remained of the flag was eventually burned.

    Five hours later, in neighboring Libya, attackers launched an assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, killing Ambassador Christopher Stevens, tech officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

    So, the VERY article you put up shows how this was manufactured as an excuse, timing it around 9/11, AND no mention of the video in the Bengazi portion of the attck.

    So, again, I ask:  Who in the U.S. government put fprward the video excuse for Bengazi?  

    We already know for a fact that the government knew that the bengazi attack was not related to the Bengazi attack.

    Will you EVER tell the American people what happened?

     

    I'm NOT expecting you to DO anything about it... meaning the terrorists.

     

    WHO changed the talking points baby for the blind parrots that only say what your administration tells them despite knowing the truth?

    You can run but not hide Barry.

    While this is admittedly a policy failure that hasn't been explained satisfactorily IMO, I think you should check out the HAARP site; it's right up your alley.
