      Yikes! They’re blaming US for instigating chaos and disorder over the video, to rile up the people over there, into attacking embassies, etc? Saying the American government is the one that is using the video against them? Egads! Talk about wagging the dog!

        Rhonda Sessions…..I LOVED your posts today….It is clear that those of us with a brain know where this country MUST go. Obamaville will LIE, cheat and steal in tonights debate. We should all be praying and supporting Romney as he faces one of the biggest challenges of his life tonight. Lets all meet tomorrow and THANK GOD that we are going to oust the useless piece of “you know what” from our government and our white house! GO Romney!!!

    • wayne74467

      Now, what bird in this world would eat that? Or are you call Chris Matthews a bird?

      • joanc

        Chris Matthews is a bird– a cookoo bird. How can the station allow this excuse of a reporter go on National Television, with his crass commentary. No wonder MSNBC is in the toilet, with employees of “Tingles” Matthews ilk,and Melissa Harris Perry,who gets manic when talking race. Many of my friends feel the same way and never turn that channel on any more, except to laugh at their representatives and their unbeliveable bias..

    These people are dead he took from them everything they had will ever had to appease the Islamic terror monger’s. Their loved ones who depends on them will do without a piece of their souls all that loved them will hurt. If this is what hung out to dry means ? Then yes we need to see the full gravity if what he is doing. No one would tolerate this. Why is our nation doing so he has to go , by vote or by impeaching him in my opinion he has qualified for impeachment six months into year one. From this point on any who seek a congressional seat need prove they have the guts to do the job.

    Obama doesn’t care about Americans, folks… he is a communist muslim… his goal is to take us down, weaken us before the Islamic countries, so that they feel emboldened to attack us. They perceive any weakness as a valid reason to attack and conquer. They understand and respect strength. Even Ahmadinejad has stated before the UN, et al, that Iran considers Obama weak, and therefore, the American people as weak. This is ALL part of Obama’s plans to subvert this country into a communist country, and weaken it enough (through loose borders and Immigration policies) that terrorists and more muslims can come into the nation, and make it an Islamic nation. His statement that he “could not change Washington from within”? Nothing but lies. He’s changing it from within, alright… into what HE wants. Don’t trust this man further than you can throw an elephant… which is no where.

    A communist dictator will remove your rights to have guns, and then confiscate the ones that you have. This is his goal, to remove our 2nd Amendment rights. After all, a country whose population cannot defend itself is easier to control. Vote this MONSTER out on Nov. 6th. Don’t let anything that he says tonight, or in the next 8 days, sway you to his side.

    • CC

      You are right on point Rhonda ! F&F was about taking away our 2nd ammendment right and Benghazi was an attempt to take away our 1st ammendment right to freedom of speech. The guy who made that silly video got sent to jail, yet, if it were a Muslim or Red Baby .. All would be hunky dory.

  • gwedem5995

    It is just like the border agent that was killed. The ambassador and all the ambassadors from around the world should have been brought home. Even if this had been ramped up because of a video, then are we saying that it is ok for this to have happened. We know it wasn’t because of a stupid video. And if the border agents don’t have discretion as to how they handle the illegals coming across, this is a national disgrace too. And what would make all this optimal might be if we lost lives like we did in 9/ll/. Any lives lost is optimal.

  • Aldi

    What can you expect from a lazy, but, arrogant person who misses the greatest majority of his intelligence briefings. We’ve never had a President who has spent so little time in the office doing the work his constituents have electected him to do. This is why he’s a total failure!

  • luciteehee

    WHY and HOW can HE even face this Nation and the families that lost their loved ones? Everything he has done for four years has benefitted ONLY those who seek our destruction! His KEY “Advisors” are radicals who were trained and mentored by the same anti-American, foreign and domestic FACTIONS that taught HIM! They are prominent in our Government and White House! What absolutely BLOWS my MIND is the meager amount of what USED to be the Democratic Party who are ALLOWING it! Where are the aggressive, competent, capable, and CONSCIOUS Democrats whom WE elected to represent us in Washington? HIDING? THEY have allowed this unknown, uncouth, inexperienced, “power,fame and wealth hungry” FRAUD to do as he will to us! People, Until WE rise up and face the destroyers of our Nation, we will continue to be ruled, governed, controlled, by elements (radical factions) that are not worthy to be PART of our Nation! Read 2 Kings, 6th Cchapter, verse 16! Surrounded by Arameans, his servant terrified, Elisha said; “Those who are WITH us are more than those who are with THEM”! Then Elisha asked God to “SHOW PROOF” to his servant! God revealed HILLS of warriors, horses and chariots of fire! Those “Hills of an Army of horses, chariots of fire and warriors” are STILL available! God is waiting for us to “humbly and fervently ASK for them!

    I hope EVERYONE will take this into consideration when they vote. The question is: Could this country and its citizens survive another four years?? I for one think Obama and his ilk should be held totally responsible for the horrible torture and deaths of four wonderful men!!…..and t his s hould extend beyond the election. WHEN Obama is defeated he will spend his remaining time in the white house to deliberately build as much chaos as he can for Romney. We the “citizens with a brain and a backbone” have to see that he walks the straight and narrow for the remaining two months, and NEVER is allowed to forget the terrible condition he is leaving our country in!!!

  • alena

    Is this feature picture a picture of the Ambassador? It looks like him but i’m not sure. There is no caption. If it is his picture, i am rapidly loosing sympathy for even the innocents who will be lost in the crossfire. Never thought i’d be this mad, but, I’m thinking along the lines of something Hiroshima-style for the entire region.

    • babygirl825

      yes, that is Amb. Stevens. A lot of people are angry about this picture. BUT the men in the picture found him still alive in a burned out building, stumbled across him in the dark, since the electricity was out. He was still alive !!! They tried to get a cab, but couldn’t, so in this picture, they are carrying him to a car to rush him to a hospital, where doctors worked over him for 45 minutes, trying to save his life, but he was too far gone !!! This is not very much broadcast. I saw the actual video of them carrying him out, putting him into a car, & rushing to the hospital. And you can see that he has smoke marks around his mouth & nose, and all of his clothes are on. He has a gash on his forehead, but other than those things, he was basically unharmed !!! One more thing….on Justice With Judge Jannine on Saturday night, there were men in the know who also said that Amb. Stevens died of smoke inhalation, so I know that what I am putting here is correct.

  • Tom K.

    This whole thing stinks. It just underlines the incompetence of Obama’s failed Administration. – OR – Were our Diplomats ” set-up ” for this attack by an ” Radical Islamic Friendly ” Administration ?

  • HongryHawg

    This goes beyond mere ineptness. Something was in the works with obama and hillary that went wrong. High stakes shenanigans that I guarantee had something to do with re-election. Some sort of pretending scenarios, something this pretender thinks he’s pretty good at. It’s treasonous, whatever it is but protection will come from everywhere, as usual.

    • CC

      Of Course something Was/ Is in the Works hongry ! Fast & Furious was to Take Away our 2nd Ammendment, so there wouldn’t be Anybody “ARMED” to Stop Them !
      And Beghazi was “THEM” at it Again ! This time to take Away the 1st Ammendment, so that Nobody could ever make such a crappy movie on their own without going to Jail. “WHERE” else would they find some obscure film that Nobody in the Free World or ANY other World had Ever Seen Before ! I think they may be a little concerned that we will learn the TRUTH about Mohammed and how much of a Sick Pervert he really was !

    As far as I am concerned…obama and his gang have the blood of those four on their hands…hillary and her crew included.

    I am starting a plea to all my Friends here and at FB to write their Congress persons and ask for them to file formal charges of Treason an murder against the POTUS and the current Administration.
    Fact 1) The US Military had eyes on the Consulate during and after the terrorist attack (by means of a preditor Drone)
    Fact 2) The US Military has direct contact to the situation room in the White House
    Fact 3) The president was in the White House at the time of the attack on the Consulate
    Fact 4) only the president can decline a response and return fire on the attack on US territory(the Consulate)
    The sacrificing of the Ambassador and 3 other US citizens in Benghazi for the advancement of his agenda is an ACT of TREASON AND MURDER! The cover-up is an attempt ot protect the president from charges making the Administration compliant in the charges of Treason and Murder!

    • CC

      Amen Terask ! They are “ALL” complicit in many wrong doings and Horrors occurring on their watch. “Nothing” short of “Treason” will ever be Acceptable to the American People !
      And to think that they will “ALL” walk away with Huge Pensions, Cadillac Health Care Plans for the Rest of their lives, Secret Service to Protect “Them” on Our Dime, Insider Trading, Raising their own Pay Scale as “They” see Fit, Paid Elite Vacations .. Again Compliments of Americans, AND the list goes On & On !
      Will it Ever Stop ? Will “They” ever Police Themselves ? It’s 1984 friends and I don’t know IF 1985 will result in the Turning of the Page !

  • Goodforall

    Just imagine if this had happened undert GW’s tenure-all heck would have broken loose and there would have been demands from the left and lame stream media for his resignation.

  • Progressive Republican

    Hey Doug, you ignored something (Surprise! Well, not really…)

    Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) acknowledged on earlier this month that House Republicans had consciously voted to reduce the funds allocated to the State Department for embassy security since winning the majority in 2010.

    For the past two years, House Republicans have continued to deprioritize the security forces protecting State Department personnel around the world. In fiscal year 2011, lawmakers shaved $128 million off of the administration’s request for embassy security funding. House Republicans drained off even more funds in fiscal year 2012 — cutting back on the department’s request by $331 million.

    Consulate personnel stationed in Benghazi had allegedly expressed concerns over their safety in the months leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks that killed four Americans, including Amb. Chris Stevens. Had Republicons like Vice-Presidential nominee Ryan NOT voted against adequate funding these brave citizens may still be alive.

    By deprioritizing safety and security concerns for American personnel around the world things like this are bound to happen. This was not an accident. This played into the hands of Republicons in their quest to assume control of this country no matter the cost.

    “As far as I am concerned, blood is dripping from Obama’s golf-gloved campaign hands.” As far as REALITY is concerned, the blood-stained treasonous hands are those who voted AGAINST supporting Americans’ security. Obama is NOT on that list.

    • charles17121

      If you are a republican I am the Quean of England . The reduction in funds allocated to the State Department had nothing to do with the fraud and usurper barack hussein obama not protecting our Ambassador to Libya . Now do yourself a favor and put down the obama Kool Aid and take a drink of reality . We The People have not had a legal sitting US President sense President Bush . You and the rest of the Obots have been backing a criminal and a fraud going by the name of barack hussein obama using a stolen social security number , forged birth certificate and forged selective service registration card to prove he is a legal sitting US President . Wake Up !

      • Progressive Republican

        Well, hi there, “Queanie”! I’d reiterate the truth, but you’d just lie and denyit again. Facts are facts> As such they stand on their own, and your unwillingness to deal with truth is typical of the likes of you. I’ll go ahead and give you some MORE facts, though. This will give you further opportunity to lie and deny.

        The Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper has confirmed that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice told the truth in describing the assessment of the intelligence community at the time of her remarks. She was not the only one relying on those initial intelligence reports.

        Two days after the attack, CIA Director David Petraeus briefed the House Intelligence Committee. Petraeus told lawmakers the best intelligence showed it was a demonstration sparked by the video that got out of hand, according to Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (MD).

        In testimony before Congress Patrick Kennedy, the Undersecretary of State for Management, also said that anyone would have said exactly what Rice said based on the intelligence available at the time.

        Some U.S. officials have said they never believed the attack was mounted by a disorganized mob, but that was not the official assessment.

        The spin-free truth is that Rice accurately stated what U.S. intelligence showed at the time, and stressed that there was an ongoing investigation where conclusions were subject to change.

        Now, if you SERIOUSLY want to go down the road of presidential frauds, let me just start by saying that Obama is the FIRST legitimately elected President of the 21st century.

        The 2000 vote was so obviously stolen that SCOTUS was asked to step in. In their decision they ADMITTED that they were Constitutionally prohibited from interfering in States’ matters. Then they said, “Don’t ask again.” Then they rendered their decision anointing the smirking chimp President. Read Bush v Gore.

        Of course, 2004 showed a new meaning for the word “clusterf*(k”. There’s the head of Diebold PROMISING to deliver Ohio to the shrub and, of course, he delivered.

        Among other instances of irregularities, assorted problems, and Republicon malfeasance:
        >Nearly half of the 6 million American voters living abroad never received their ballots — or received them too late to vote — after the Pentagon unaccountably shut down a state-of-the-art Web site used to file overseas registrations.
        >A consulting firm called Sproul & Associates, which was hired by the Republican National Committee to register voters in six battleground states was discovered shredding Democratic registrations. Now called Strategic Allied Consulting, they are under investigation for pulling the same crap this year in at least ten states nationwide.
        >In New Mexico, which was decided by 5,988 votes, malfunctioning machines mysteriously failed to properly register a presidential vote on more than 20,000 ballots.
        >Nationwide, according to the federal commission charged with implementing election reforms, as many as 1 million ballots were spoiled by faulty voting equipment — roughly one for every 100 cast.

        The reports were especially disturbing in Ohio, the critical battleground state that clinched Bush’s victory in the electoral college. Officials there purged tens of thousands of eligible voters from the rolls, neglected to process registration cards generated by Democratic voter drives, shortchanged Democratic precincts when they allocated voting machines and illegally derailed a recount that could have given Kerry the presidency. A precinct in an evangelical church in Miami County recorded an impossibly high turnout of ninety-eight percent, while a polling place in inner-city Cleveland recorded an equally impossible turnout of only seven percent. In Warren County, GOP election officials even invented a nonexistent terrorist threat to bar the media from monitoring the official vote count..

        Across the country, Republican election officials and party stalwarts employed a wide range of illegal and unethical tactics to fix the election. A review of the available data reveals that in Ohio alone:
        >At least 357,000 voters, the overwhelming majority of them Democratic, were prevented from casting ballots or did not have their votes counted in 2004 — more than enough to shift the results of an election decided by 118,601 votes.
        >One in every four Ohio citizens who registered to vote in 2004 showed up at the polls only to discover that they were not listed on the rolls, thanks to GOP efforts to stem the unprecedented flood of Democrats eager to cast ballots.
        >80,000 votes for Kerry were counted instead for Bush. That alone is a swing of more than 160,000 votes — enough to have put John Kerry in the White House.

        Did I mention all the precincts that tallied a voter turnout in excess of 100%?

        While I’ll point out that there hasn’t been one legitimately elected Republicon President since Eisenhower, I’ve run out of time to refute your drivel. So, YOU quit mainlining your GOP Kool-aid and at least try to pretend that you’re paying attention to the truth, for a change. It may be uncomfortable at first. Stopping any addicting drug usually is,but eventually you’ll be fine if you have the strength of character and sufficient courage. Go for it.

    THIS ISN’T THE 1ST ACT OF “TREASON”, BUT, IT HAD BETTER BE THE LAST !

  • Cindy

    This most definately falls under “High Crimes & Misdemeanors” as stated in the U.S. Constitution. The Price for committing crimes such this is “TREASON” !!! This horrific
    crime to humankind that took place in Benghazi is a direct result of ineptitude & elitist ideology and one more reason Why Mitt Romney “Must” Replace the Traitor in Our House Immediately!

  • CC

    There are no acceptable reasons for anyone in this administration to not be charged with high crimes and misdemeanors.

    Troops could have been sent within an hour …. Request was never made.
    Was this a cover up or a plan?
    Be it incompetence or diliberate this administration should be tried for dereliction of duty, incompetence, and possible treason. None of them should ever hold a position in goverenment ever again and are culpable in the murder of 4 Americans.

  • outofhopedue2change

    The bottom line is, the WH knew exactly what was happening. Here is my take (actually from a friend). The WH was planning on letting the Amb be taken hostage, then using the blind sheik in a trade for the Amb. This is why he refused more security….Stevens was set up and didn’t know it. But, the WH wasn’t planning on the 2 ex-seals now CIA being there and a firefight was the result. But, the scary thing is if BO would be willing to sacrifice an Amb, what about us? In the Progressive mindset of saving the planet and over population the answer is that we are just numbers. It explains Obamacare and everything else. A few loss of lives here and there is a legitimate means to an end. It explains having the Muslim Brotherhood embedded in our government and Sharia law…all means to an end. It explains UN Agenda 21. All control the population and saves the planet from the population.
