Ace of Spades HQ

Unreal. Irresponsible and purposeful dereliction of duty by CBS News. Waiting until after millions have already voted. They knew this after the second debate, when the controversy arose, yet said absolutely nothing on what they had.

Obama did an interview with CBS' Steve Kroft on the night of September 12th and the first question is about why he didn't call it terrorism in his Rose Garden statement that day.


As Fox News' Brett Baier points out
, that directly contradicts Obama's pre-planned statement during the second debate with Romney. You know, the one where hacktastic Candy Crowely vouched for Obama's lie. Do you think CBS, the official network of fake Texas Air National Guard memos, would have sat on this if they could have shown Bush lied his ass off in a debate?
Bias? What media bias?

Bush would have never gotten away with this or pulling off Fast & Furious......they'd still be talking about it.

All I see is CBS must need a boast and maybe, they see Romney pulling ahead and it has them worried of losing their jobs. After all, all CBS has been since President Obama won was pawns for keeping Obama in the spotlight.

If Obama is re-elected, this Benghazi debacle is not going to go away. It can only be brushed over for so long. I'm curious as to what strategy they have for that.

It would be dealt with quickly - meaning whatever truth there is would come out all at once and then be gone - and that would happen soon after the election so it could be forgotten in the fog of the holiday season before next year begins.

What President Obama really said in that '60 Minutes' interview about Benghazi

Click here to see the "60 Minutes" interview.

Sept 12, this interview was a few hours after the Rose Garden speech, where Obama said "No act of terror."

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

Sorry to put it this way, but keeping it really as always. Don't they constantly putll the same crap out of their butt's.

We hear the same old lines over and over and over, again. The same stuff said, nothing of substance, just like Obama. He has no substance either.

Yep I watched this 60 minutes episode ...and I posted this thread a couple of weeks ago-and everyone called me a liar ( I even received wonderful reputation points where people called me a racist)and that's not what he said blah blah blah ...it is sickening what happened and maybe CBS will finally start being what they are paid to do...REPORT without bias-

So the fact that the so-called Fast & Furious program started under Bush doesn't enter into your thinking at all?
