So they ignored all the other countries for 2 weeks because they didn't know sh*t about what happened and "thought" it was the movie.

Rice told the President of Libya on CBS that he was a liar and it was the "movie guy".
Rice did not say the President of Libya was a liar or imply that the President of Libya was a liar.

I have no idea what you are talking about in the first paragraph.

It may well be true that the attack was planned before the video or simply took advantage of the video. But there is no reason to believe that what participants in the attack told our reporter was false, or that we were wrong to report it.""



New York Times Stands By Early Report Of Demonstrators At Libya Consulate Attack
I saw this report, and no one else reported this. To me this is just another lying ass, agenda driven reporter, making stuff up. There was no movie protest, much less a NYT reporter on the scene at Benghazi, interviewing the terrorists on 9/11. The video only had a couple hundred hits before the attacks on Sept 11. This attack was the culmination of months of attacks against this consulate, the Red Cross and the British embassy.

Meanwhile no one else saw protesters. Only the NYTimes editor.

State Department: No video protest at the Benghazi consulate | The Cable
Prior to the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi late in the evening on Sept. 11, there was no protest outside the compound, a senior State Department official confirmed today, contradicting initial administration statements suggesting that the attack was an opportunistic reaction to unrest caused by an anti-Islam video.

Putting special forces up against an armed mob at 10-1 odds was tried in Mogadishu, and it did not end well at all.
And yet, how many hours did these few men hold out in Benghazi? They held out for hours, and hours, and hours, with only two men, think what they could have done with some real help, of any kind.

You've been listening to rightwing radio again, haven't you?

Doesn't sound like he "went off to bed not knowing or caring if Stevens was alive or dead" to me. It sounds like he directed his Defense Secretary to "do whatever you need to do to be able to protect our people there." What else should he have done?

I love when you guys debunk yourselves.

LOL. Wow, you liberals just dont know what to donor say at this point. You seem so desperate. Give this a try: try to put your allegiance and agenda aside and care about the truth. Seriously, try it for once. You might actually be able to sleep at night.

This is incompetence and or corruption. I say, its both.

just think, if liberals had their way, wed still all think it was due to a video and the evil doer filmmaker is in jail and that's all she wrote. Screw liberals

Funniest thing I've heard a right winger say on C-D in a long time. You should take that act on the road.

There's no way with this going on that any president worth anything would go to bed.
