Please elaborate on what difference it makes if the source of the attack was misreported during the first few weeks, before all the facts were in. Has it affected policy? Would four people still be dead? Was ANYBODY still confused about who was responsible for the attack after 3-4 weeks?
You people are really grasping at straws here. Why are you wasting your energy on something so irrelevant and petty? Its not like bad information was used to justify invading another country and spending trillions of dollars.
A bunch of GOP dimwits determined to find SOME shred of something they can use to smear shit on Obama. Attempting to turn a molehill into a mountain through willpower and bullshit.
I mean really, let's say State Dept HAD gotten things right immediately. I rarely expect this in the "fog" that immediately follows some event like this. It usually takes YEARS or NEVER for some agencies to recognize errors. But let's say they had. Now what would have changed about our lives today? Please elucidate how this event being communicated one way vs the other, resulted in some major diplomatic or military change, that would have changed the War on Terror completely. Go ahead, convince me the tragic consequences of this error and the UTOPIA we missed out on by one screwup.

and that would mean a contradiction what obama has been saying for months...al qaeda is finished... than came another "911" surprise right before election... al qaeda not finished after all... no smear just facts..
it seems the political life of a incompetent administration would come to an end. so they did a cover up.. while all the evidence was clear as day light.. and 60 mintues the independent arm of the media gets caught censuring the most damning evidence of all.
and all Obama did was become apologist for some anti Muslim video even during the UN speech
So Vicente was the attack on benghazi over the video or a preplanned terrorist attack... which one ?
Republicans can't find anything legitimate to complain about, so they're wasting time grasping at straws.
They could find plenty of legitimate things to complain about, but they can't propose any legitimate solutions that their coalition would tolerate. They shout about distractions to drown out any discussion of their backwards and dreadful policies. It's like Jindal's advice, except at higher volume: they can't muzzle their worst representatives, so they try to shout louder about something else, anything else, hoping nobody will notice the elephants in the room.
COME ON .. its 4 versus 4487 and a ratio of 1000 !!
LOL! a dinky scratch and some go crying home to momma...
Kennedy must be disgusted at what his democratic party has become...
This certainly isnt the democratic party he once was the leader of... the new brave generation. At least he wasnt a pussy compared to some today.
"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, to assure the survival and the success of liberty." President John F. Kennedy - January 20, 1961
On 19 December 2003, Gaddafi made a surprise announcement that he planned to dismantle the program. Libya agreed to destroy all of its chemical, nuclear, and biological weapons. Libya provided the designs of centrifuges to U.S. officials and gave the name of its suppliers. The revelation led to the debriefing of Abdul Qadeer Khan, one of Pakistan's top scientists. In 2004, the United States, along with IAEA officials and Interpol, led the arrest of the Libyan nuclear program's former head Friedrich Tinner. On 22 January 2004, U.S. transport planes carried 55,000 pounds of documents and equipment related to Libya's nuclear and ballistic missile programs to the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee. In March 2004, over 1,000 additional centrifuge and missile parts were shipped out of Libya.
I feel like there should be a party for the California conservative like me. I'm not racist, at least I don't think I am. I'm married interracially so I pass that test. I believe people should have the right to choose how to live their lives and do whatever they like until it hurts others. That's pretty libertarian, I suppose. I'm against propaganda, both sides. That means I won't be tolerating Fox rantings or gay mafia propaganda. People have a right to their beliefs in this country, even if others may find them repugnant. I believe that the government should do less. Less overseeing its citizens through endless regulation and policing. Less spent on invading other nations and less expensive war planes. Less intrusion into our lives over what we put in our bodies, be it raw milk or cannibis. I believe we could balance the budget, if sacred cows like homeland security were put on the chopping block. I believe the rich could pay more taxes if they're making 20 million annually and paying 11%. By anyone's math that is wrong. Close the loopholes! Then perhaps we can have the productive middle class tax rate at a sane level. I believe that corruption in government costs us all, and should be rooted out. We cannot afford to become a banana republic, which is increasing in likelihood as those from such cultures attain office and begin the double dealing.
I think we need to psychologically evaluate all politicians and place disclaimers on the ones who are likely sociopaths. That would discourage outright malicious activity in government. The Chinese had a tradition of this for centuries. We could learn something.
Anyone else have things to add to the list? Arguments?
He used the phrase that the Republican Party has to be smart, which kind of implies that they have been stupid.
Paul Ryan never presents solutions, he is all about what the problems are, with absolutely no regard for how much can be done. He is pushing his own agenda of getting rid of Democrats.
Paul Ryan never sees himself as the problem.
The Tea Party has been, and continues to be divisive. I don't see any upside to this affiliation between the Tea Party and Republicans. That was a stupid alliance for Republicans to make.
The list of stupid mistakes Republicans have made continues without an end in sight.
Its more a matter of the GOP not wanting to admit it. ( I can say this as a Southerner) but the GOP became the country-fried party a few decades ago whereas in the past they were more like the top-hate wearing party of the elite and powerful. Country fried isn't appetizing to many demographics except one.
The GOP still is the top-hate wearing party of the elite and powerful, pretending to be the country-fried party.
Just look at how much they cry about a tax increase on the rich, while completely ignoring the regressive 2% payroll tax increase that affects low and mid income earners the most.
as was reported IRAQ was stonewalling and misguiding the inspections not allowing inspectors to freely go where they wanted.. frankly all of this created the appearance of someone hiding weapons and projects...
You didnt need Bush, Good ol Al Gore was talking about WMD and terrorists links long before the 2000 election..
Al Gore: No Doubt Saddam's Weapons Are Grave Threat
In a third day of fiery rhetoric, North Korea directed its verbal onslaught at its neighbour on Friday, saying: "'Sanctions' mean a war and a declaration of war against us".
North Korea is not believed to have the technology to deliver a nuclear warhead capable of hitting the continental US, although its December launch showed it had the capacity to deliver a rocket that could travel 6,200 miles (10,000km), potentially putting San Francisco in range, according to an intelligence assessment by South Korea.
