    Americans across the country are laughing at the desperation of the GOP, which is counting on the country to share their Obama-Clinton Derangement Syndrome. They learned nothing from the last election: the American people think they're paranoid, angry, conspiracy theory nuts. They keep proving it.

    The American people watched -- in real time -- protests erupt around the world at American embassies and facilities on Sept 11. The Benghazi incident was originally thought to be amongst those protests, giving conflicting early reports. Obama called it "terror" the very next day. Hillary took responsibility and implemented recommended changes months ago. The CIA circulated drafts of talking points, received comments and suggestions, and came up with a final draft. This doesn't show a cover-up, it shows as further investigation sharpened the details, opinions change. That's the difference between Democrats and Republicans: when the facts change, Democrats change their opinions. Republican crazies are impervious to facts.

    Americans already know all this. It's only right-wing nutjobs like Rand Paul and House Republicans and Teabaggers who don't get it. You ask a Republican was exactly they think was being covered up: they don't even know. Even if the Obama Administration had all the details on the day of, Republican sickos would find something to scream and whine about.

    The party is full of partisan, sore-loser crybabies who are terrified of 5'8" old retired white woman married to Bill Clinton. The GOP is a national joke.

    I would like to point out that the Republicans called up 3 State Department witnesses and 0 CIA witnesses during their hearings this week.

    The emails released yesterday prove that Susan Rice was going off the CIA talking points and upholds her testimony.

    This feud between the CIA and State Department, even going to the FBI, has especially been going on since before the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and that was supposed to fix that. There are still gaps in the DHS that needs to be fixed to stop this.

    But at least one Republican admits that Iran-Contra was a coverup, but too late for Justice on that one...

    Exactly. This happened at a CIA facility, under CIA auspices, and thus the draft talking points that have these whiny, crybaby, bloodthirsty Republicans wetting their diapers were CIA drafts.

    So why didn't they call anybody from the CIA? Because Republicans are terrified of Hillary Clinton and desperate to turn her into Richard Nixon because the American people know and respect her. They're crazy nuts.

    its a funny piece but misses the point.

    Jon Stewart started out with the premise to discredit the Benghazi investigation. Its neither hard news nor is it informative.

    Its not about how many attacks in the Bush Administration, its about a apolitical "state department" became political in cooking talking points to make a terrorist attack look like a protest gone bad.

    He doesn't mention that because there is no explanation for the talking points and what came out of the adminstration. Even up to the debates the media was covering for Obama. Its seems as if the media is less inclined to cover as coverage in the media outside of Fox is picking up.

    Flat-out lie: everyone initially believed it *was* part of protests gone bad. Both the first draft and the final draft of the CIA talking points said the entire incident originated from spontaneous protests, like the protests at American facilities around the world that were occurring that day -- something Republicans would like everybody to conveniently forget to feed their paranoid delusions.

    The State Department never edited out of the talking points that it was a protest gone bad...because that's exactly what they thought it was. No one at the CIA, State, or the White House ever disputed that -- and the President called it "terror" on national television mere hours later.

    Everybody understands this except Republicans who insist on wasting everybody's time with their nutty conspiracy theories. All Republicans do is lie, lie, and lie some more hoping nobody notices.

    You see, that's your problem honey child. If you would behave like a man first, an American second, and not spend all your time being a "black man," you'd understand that not all African-Americans believe your bull shit. You are what the white liberal has made you: a plain old black thug.

    you maybe one a small minority that is holding to the original talking points.

    Chris Wallace: I want to talk to you about a controversy, a continuing controversy, about the talking points that came out afterwards that led, some people say, to a lot of disinformation. These were the talking points the administration put out after the attack. Steve Hayes of The Weekly Standard reports that the first draft by the CIA on September 14th said this: “The crowd almost certainly was a mix of individuals from across many sectors of Libyan society. That being said, we do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al Qaeda participated in the attack.

    Rep Steve Lynch ( democrat)

    Rep. Stephen Lynch: They certainly weren’t accurate. I don’t know what the process was there. But absolutely. They were false. They were wrong. There were no protests outside the Benghazi compound there. This was a deliberate and strategic attack on the consulate there. So any statement that this was sort of like the you know the other protests in Cairo and other embassies, this was not that type

    No, everybody knows that the original talking points didn't have all the details. Only Republicans think that all the details were known from Day One and "covered up" apparently during some clandestine meeting between Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the entire CIA -- but *especially* Hillary Clinton.

    They're nuts.

    you seem to still hold to the theory it was a "protest gone wrong".

    Even the state department has departed from this theory.

    Actually I find it indefensible when anchors smile and nod at people telling them bald faced lies. Having a dissenting opinion is one thing, but people go on TV and spread brazen lies, and it's treated as if they are making valid points! Yellow journalism may look and smell like piss, but it's actually just a load of shit.icon_mad.gif

    The problem is that reporters are more obsessed with appearing "objective" than they are with facts. Thus Republicans get to tell lies about the non-existent Benghazi "cover-up" and respectable news organizations feel obligated to give them an airing, even though it's ridiculous.

    Fortunately, the public is not falling for it, according to the polls -- which Republicans will claim are "skewed" like those "skewed" polls showing Obama beating Romney: http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/main/2013/05/voters-trust-clinton-over-gop-on-benghazi.html

    Would that most major news media were actually objective. On an occasion where they do make an attempt to be objective, the left's zealots like our Troy go nuts. We have checks and balances in this country. If Troy can't handle that, maybe he'd be more comfortable in Russia or Venezuela. By the way, to borrow a common misquote, me thinks he (Troy) protest too much. He's been all over this quite a lot. Why?? Is he trying to wage a one man propaganda battle for the democrat party? icon_question.gif

    Pfft. Just like showme said: the only propaganda here is constant barrage of annoying right-wing spam from your conservative crazies.

    I'm always "all over" Republicans doing what they do best: racism, homophobia, greed, lies and insanity. *shrug*
