    Petraeus destroys Republicans fake Benghazi Scandal

    Petraeus destroys Republicans fake Benghazi Scandal

     

    Republicans have criticized the United States ambassador to the United Nations, Susan E. Rice, for suggesting that the siege in Benghazi was a spontaneous protest rather than an opportunistic terrorist attack. Ms. Rice used the less specific, unclassified talking points when she appeared on five Sunday talk shows five days after the attack.

     
    David H. Petraeus, the former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, told lawmakers on Friday that classified intelligence reports revealed that the deadly assault on the American diplomatic mission in Libya was a terrorist attack, but that the administration refrained from saying it suspected that the perpetrators of the attack were Al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers to avoid tipping off the groups.

    Mr. Petraeus, who resigned last week after admitting to an extramarital affair, said the names of groups suspected in the attack — including Al Qaeda’s franchise in North Africa and a local Libyan group, Ansar al-Shariah — were removed from the public explanation of the attack immediately after the assault to avoiding alerting the militants that American intelligence and law enforcement agencies were tracking them, lawmakers said.

    Yes, they certainly are. The don't care about America one bit. All they care about is the 1%. It looks like McCain has gone senile and the Speaker of the House looks like he's a good cry waiting to happen.

    Back on Earth:

    Former CIA Director David Petraeus stoked the controversy over the Obama administration's handling of the Libya terror attack, testifying Friday that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were stripped from his agency's original talking points -- while other intelligence officials were unable to say who changed the memo.

    Petraeus stated that the reference of Al Qaeda were taken out of the unclassified memo that Amb Rice relied upon so NOT TO TIP OFF THE GROUP WHO WERE BEHIND THE ATTACK.

    That tactic is called misinformation and it is used to keep the real important people in the dark. The important people are not you and me this time . The important people this time are considered THE ENEMY.

    BTW the righties are starting to make me feel ill with their party over country bull.... !

    The militants that attacked the consulate are linked to al Qaeda.

    the Egyptian who aired the anti muslim video is an extremist who advocates for sharia law.  He is a member of an organization that is much mre radical than The Muslim Brotherhood.  They share the same ideology as Al Qeada. 

    After the video was aired, a protest occurred at the US Embassy in Egypt.  On 9/11, the Egyptian protesters were joined by Mohammed al-Zawahiri, whose brother is the current head of Al Qeada.

    The attack on the Consulate in Libya occurred after the protests in Egypt.  

    The attack on the Consulate was certainly not the result of a protest that escalated.  But to say that the attack on the consulate and the video going viral are not connected is being simple minded.

    I know. Am I missing something? Partreus said it was a terror attack when he first learned of it and basically said the administration changed that particular line in his report to read that it was a video. 

    A lie and a cover up. Plain and simple. How you get patraeus P-ing in the republicans Cheerios is beyond me. 



    You apparently cannot read.

    could someone please start keeping track of the shifting excuses tha we're seeing for this debacle? first it was a a spontanious demonstration due to a video, then it was "i said it was terrorism, right candy?", it was "militants but not terrorists," or "no one knew it was al qeada," or "fox news is lying," or "it's not a big deal anyway."

    c'mon people, can we not find one lie and stick to it?

    but that the administration refrained from saying it suspected that the perpetrators of the attack were Al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers to avoid tipping off the groups.

    so, now we're saying that our strategy was to pretend that we were incapable of reading the facebook and twitter posts by ansar al sharia that claimed responsibility for the attack so that they'd think that they'd gotten away with it?

    really? that's what we're going with?

    There is no evidence of any protest

     




    Except for all the protests that took place in other locations in the area.  Duh!

    Re: Petraeus destroys Republicans fake Benghazi Scandal

    I think Republicans have soiled and embarrassed themselves quite enough on this witch hunt.  To keep perpetuating lies is just pathological and delusional. 

    The Benghazi attacks need to be thoroughly reviewed and scrutinized for the sake of our national security. Critical questions need to be answered such as: Who are the perpetrators, were these attacks preventable and how are we going to prevent these kind of attacks in the future?

    But Republicans aren't at all interested in those questions.  The desparate GOP is determined to sully Obama's decisive second election and their own rejection by the American people by chewing on every little bit of this story. They are a sad bunch.

    God, could alleyrat be any dumber?  For that matter......Ed Shultz who`s trying to take the same tack.  She lied! She lied 5 times!  She was told to lie and she lied!  How dumb are Democrats?




    Dumb enough to repeat the same talking points over and over, no matter how much more we learn.

    Doesn't this remind you of the Clinton years?  ...jut about sex..., blah blah blah.

    Once again, the Democrats are putting their leader's interests above the safety and security of the country.

    Righties get over it! No matter what you do or say we have a President Obama for four more years. Face the facts, your brand has been rejected by a majority of our country's citizens.

    Now, as for conspiracies theories, I really want the U.S. Government to come clean about the Majestic 12 Committee !

    This has nothing to do with an election.  Gawd man, stop the spin.  4 Americans died in a terrorist attack, by al Qaeda, on Sept 11th, a day when ANY COMPETENT administration would have everyone on high alert.  After that attack, CIA on the ground, Patreaus, and every guy with a remote control watching their big-screen KNEW it was terrorism.  Our administration chose to LIE, tell all the surrogates to LIE, sent Hillary out to LIE, sent Susan Rice out to LIE (5 times), the president LIED repeatedly.............and many of you just want it to go away.  That`s not how these things work......sorry to say. Now Patreaus has told the truth under oath and it`s blatantly clear that someone(s) changed (erased) the truth. This won`t go away.

    It`s not the act, it`s the cover-up!



    Stop lying.  You know there was conflicting information at the time.  You know that Petraeus' view on the terrorist angle was witheld to further investigate the matter.  And despite this you say the reverse.  There was no cover-up.  This is just more swiftboat smears.  Stop lying already.  Politics are not worth it.

    Nothing worse then a wingnut with a four year case of Obama Derangement Syndrome and now looking down the barrel at another four years after losing the election.

    Better double up on the sedatives before you hurt yourself.

    Isn't it time for you to wheel yourself back to the common room, take you meds and stare out the window all afternoon?
