Oh, for the love of Pete! This is getting ridiculous

THIS IS WHAT HAPPENED

Over-all summary:
Radical Islamic people responded to a video that offended their religion.

Breakdown
While we know what caused the event, we don't know the specifics such as who was responsible and how many were involved.
Rice's testimony was a "to the best of our knowledge" type of thing and the administration's assertion that is was due to a film was correct.

So you say it was NOT about the film...
Go to the Mideast and say you made a film offending the Islamic religion.
You didn't do it, but they don't care. They heard about that and they responded in a bad way

You guys are so upset this administration has been scandal-free. You want to find something--anything to bring down this guy.
Fast and Furious was a bust so now you're on this now hoping it will take off outside of your right-wing bubble.

Slap Forehead

Actually Obama didn't want the deaths of four Americans to ruin his narrative that Al Qaeda had been decimated especially before election so they kept blaming the video and saying it was a demonstration though there was none. And it has been proven that it was a PLANNED terrorist attack, that had been planned for months, and Amb. Chris Stevens had been telling the White House that he feared for his life and on that day during those 7 hours of the attack he and others asked the White House for back up several times and didn't get any. Everyone including the White House knew it was terrorism but chose to blame it on a filmmaker who exercised his right to free speech. I don't care if it offends people of Islam, people make films mocking Christians all the time, you don't see them rioting and besides, this youtube trailer wasn't even seen by anyone.

He warned the State Dept about security problems

On Sept. 11 — the day Stevens and three other Americans were killed — the ambassador signed a three-page cable, labeled “sensitive,” in which he noted “growing problems with security” in Benghazi and “growing frustration” on the part of local residents with Libyan police and security forces. These forces the ambassador characterized as “too weak to keep the country secure.”

I don't know where you get your news but all the networks are saying exactly the opposite of you. The video bullshit is just that. Bullshit and a fuckin' lie.

Rice made her rounds on Sunday morning news programs on all networks and now it looks like mud is on her face. What's a UN ambassador doing that for? That should've been Hillary's job.

How is it that the CIA says it was a terror attack by Al Qeada? How is that, NP? Is MSNBC feeding you shit again?

I'm getting tired of this. You make 100% false claims that have been proven wrong even by left wing sources and yet you still do it. Are you trolling on purpose?

Let's makes this nice and clear here.








Petraeus says details of Libya attack were withheld

Eric Schmitt
New York Times
Saturday, Nov. 17, 2012


WASHINGTON -- Former CIA Director David Petraeus told lawmakers Friday that classified intelligence reports revealed that the deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya was a terrorist attack.

But he said the Obama administration refrained from saying it suspected that the perpetrators were al Qaeda affiliates and sympathizers to avoid tipping off the groups.

Petraeus, who resigned last week after admitting to an extramarital affair, said the names of groups suspected in the attack were removed from the public explanation immediately after the assault to avoid alerting the militants that U.S. intelligence and law enforcement agencies were tracking them, lawmakers said.

In his first public appearance since resigning, Petraeus testified before the House and Senate intelligence committees in back-to-back closed-door hearings.

Lawmakers from both parties continued to wrestle with questions about the Obama administration's handling of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi and about why its public portrayal conflicted with the intelligence agencies' classified assessments.

"They knew right away that there were terrorists involved in the operation," said Rep. C.A. "Dutch" Ruppersberger of Maryland, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

The attack killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

During his testimony, Petraeus expressed regret for his affair.

Lawmakers did not ask him about it. In addition to what the administration knew about the assailants, they focused their questions on possible security lapses at the Benghazi compound.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., said Petraeus' testimony showed that "clearly the security measures were inadequate despite an overwhelming and growing amount of information that showed the area in Benghazi was dangerous, particularly on the night of Sept. 11."

But many of the questions from lawmakers dealt with how the intelligence services and the administration overall responded to a request from the House committee for unclassified talking points about what happened, in advance of a closed briefing by Petraeus on Sept. 14, three days after the attack.

The talking points initially drafted by the CIA attributed the attack to fighters with al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar al-Shariah, a Libyan group with al Qaeda ties.

Petraeus and other top CIA officials signed off on the draft and circulated it to other intelligence agencies, as well as the State Department and National Security Council.

At some point in the process -- Petraeus told lawmakers he was not sure where -- objections were raised to naming the groups and the less specific word extremists was substituted.

"The fact is, the reference to al Qaeda was taken out somewhere along the line by someone outside the intelligence community," Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., said after the House hearing.

"We need to find out who did it and why."


After the hearings, administration officials disputed the notion that politics motivated the changes.

"There were legitimate intelligence and legal issues to consider, as is almost always the case when explaining classified assessments publicly," said a senior official familiar with the drafting of the talking points.








So, now we have another story posted here that disputes NP's version of "it was the video" nonsense. From the NYT no less!
