And most of the American media, along with the American left, do not want to do anything more than to just continue to fellate this president, figuratively speaking of course.

Typical weak response; when you can't refute the facts, attack the source.

Isn't the rule not to take advantage of an emotional situation for political purposes? That is what we were told about the Sandy Hook shootings. Posting a picture of a dead man is a cheap shot and show total lack of respect!

What is wrong? You don't like the truth? That man called, no begged for more security and his requests were denied. As the Al-Quaeda flags were flying all around and other countries pulled their people out. Our Ambassador was denied more security. Now tell me about respect.

Do you know who Gosnell is? Or is MSNBC keeping you blind to that. Oh yea, they were called out and forced to report it. Did you see the dead baby. That too is a result of your politics.

At least Hilary didn't finish reading, "The Pet Goat" while our country was under attack.

In other words, your entire post is false and represents the disconnect between what you believe and actual facts.
You just flat out lied. That timeline doesn't end at 11:30, it continues thoughout the night including:

5:15 a.m. -- Attackers launch assault on a second U.S. facility in Benghazi. Two former U.S. Navy SEALs acting as security contractors are killed. They are identified as Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.

7:40 a.m. -- The first wave of Americans are evacuated to Tripoli via airplane.

10 a.m. -- A second group, including those killed in the attack, are flown to Tripoli.

The last two people were not killed until 5:15 am. 9:40-5:15 is 6 hours and 30 minutes, and that's according to the CIA.

Obama did in fact go to bed, and people died. It took them 8 hours to even start evacuating people to Tripoli.

Are you not the least bit embarrassed that you just totally, blatantly lied?

What grieves me the most, Weichert, is that one of our US Ambassadors and staff at our US Embassy suffered a terrorist attack, they lost their lives, and everyone who supports Obama is just okay with that. No big deal--winning the election was more important.

I wish the shock would return to our nation to where we as a nation insist all precautions be taken to keep our Ambassadors safe rather than discussing unimportant things such as Rush Limbaugh.

Nobody's angry, Weichert. I personally am sad that our priorities are so freaking screwed up.

And no, he is far (or at least was) from an irrelevant talk show host.

We send these people into very dangerous areas of the world yet when they need protection our government denies them. Nothing like being hung out to be murdered. Just like Dr Alfredie, he helped us get Osama Bin Laden but Obama does nothing to help him. He still rots in prison where he is being tortured for helping us. Why would anyone ever want to help us if this is how we treat them afterward.

And the left thinks nothing of it.

Well, regardless if you (and I mean you) are an R or a D, that really isn't sufficient enough to determine if there is or isn't an issue. I would like a response that has more substance, but I doubt I'm going to get one.

IMO, nothing has been resolved one way or the other. Obviously there are more people out there that know more but we aren't hearing from them. Benghazi is a gray area.
