I guess we'll soon see about that when the rest of the evidence comes out. You know his miserable butt is in deep trouble and probably won't survive his term, but you think if you continue to say differently it will help him. It won't, what will be will be, he is finished.. and he will take Killary with him...

On 9/12 the administration was told it was a commando style attack and they knew it was a terrorist attack. The talking points were edited removing all references to Al-Quaeda. Obama continued to say that Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al-Quaeda is on the run and today he claims that this is overblown.

I so disrespect this president. Oopps, I need to be more careful or the IRS might target me.

The die hard Obama sycophants do NOT care that people died. All they care about is protecting their America destroying agenda.

The issue here is not that the attack happened. Things happen in dangerous parts of the world, and thankfully, we have people brave enough to serve in harms way, knowing the potential risk involved. What is at issue here is the Obama administration's response to the attacks. The talking points that have gone through no less than 12 separate incarnations that removed any reference to the event being a terror attack. The talking points that were initially claimed to be the sole product of the CIA with no input from the White House or the Foggy Bottom crowd. Turns out that was untrue. The oft repeated claim the there was no concerted terror attack, but just a spontaneous protest to some video people in Libya had not even seen that was put forth by the State Department in the wake of the attack even though they knew it was false. Lying to the American public to cover the administration's behind in the run up to the 2012 elections is the main issue. Even media outlets normally touted by the liberal crowd are now saying there is something to the Benghazi response that bears further investigation. The New Yorker and The New York times, just to name a couple.
The CIA introduced the spontaneous attack language and linked it to Cairo, claiming that it was inspired by Cairo. The event in Cairo was tied to the video. In fact in one of the revisions the CIA introduced language about the CIA's warnings tied to social media.

LOL, where are you getting this nonsense from? It's even more entertaining than watching Benghazi Jay Carney attempt to do a press conference.

The talking points were SIGNIFICANTLY watered down. President Obama was in a fight for re-election.

Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al-Quaeda is on the run.

Yes, Mr president, the talking points did have political motivations, YOUR political motivations. Todays speech also has "political motivations". It is your calling card, demonize, discredit and spin words to your benefit.

After all Obama, as you said Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al-Quaeda is on the run. That didn't turn out to be true did it?

Watered down? They were changed to outright lies. That's completely different from watered down.

You are being way too generous with your language.

The 12 revisions have been published. Have been linked in this thread. You should read them.

Yep the watered down did change the entire meaning of the talking points as President Obama was in a fighting for re-election. Yes, Mr president, the talking points did have political motivations, YOUR political motivations.

Osama Bin Laden is dead and Al-Quaeda is on the run.

Al-Quaeda is on the run? Really, that turned out to be untrue. Poor prez, Obama's narrative went down in flames just like Benghazi.

Changed to the point that the TPs were useless - per Petreaus. He wouldn't even sign off on them and left it to the WH to do what they pleased with them. And we see what they did. Gave TPs that were useless.
