Video footage from the United States consulate in Benghazi, Libya, taken the night of the Sept. 11 anniversary attacks, shows an organized group of armed men attacking the compound, according to two U.S. intelligence officials who have seen the footage and are involved in the ongoing investigation. The footage, which was recovered from the site last week by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, offers some of the most tangible evidence yet that a military-style assault took place, according to these officials.(Snip)Video from the compound’s cameras debunk the initial line from the Obama administration that there was a protest in front
Comments: Also studying videos from other sources.
Okay, ok, we've been convinced since the day after that it was a terrorist attack. Now talk to us-- which of those Intel Communities said for two weeks it was over a video protest? None?
I wanna know about that piece of fiction. Where did THAT start? Why did that fiction stand with Hillary for days? Never mind brack. Hillary had the whole tragic show streaming live downstairs in her ship of State.

Romney has to demand that Obama release this video so that the Amerrican people can understand what happened in Benghazi. Mitt should do so at Tuesday's debate so that BO can either prove that there was a demonstration or that BO, Biden, Hillary, Rice, Carney all lied to the country.
Where did 'blame the video' come from? A meeting in the basement situation room where noone could hear what was said by a collection of fools in their attempt to prevent the public from seeing what a lying (Al Quida in on the run) piece of garbage the faux president is.

I remember GWB's administration emphasizing that "we have to be right every time; the terrorists only have to be right once". Romney should slam it home that this task is daunting enough when our intelligence community under the direction of the administration is focused like a laser on the terrorist threat. It becomes impossible when you have a president who deludes himself that AQ is on its heels, a massacre at an army base by a lunatic yelling allah akbar is a "workplace incident", and a CIC who's primary duty is to protect the American people is too lazy and indifferent to attend intelligence briefings.
Evidently the lying administration thought they could use the protests in Cairo as the link and therefore they could cover up terrorism ('al Qaeda is on its heels') at least until November 6th by demonizing an American and his obscure video as the cause of the Benghazi. If the intelligence reports Obama ignored and/or left unread could ever be made public, we would learn that the run-up and the attack were there in detail from the outset.
Any person with a brain knows that 9/11 is a date that should require increased vigilance. Perhaps if our esteemed leaders had attended their intelligence briefings they would have been prepared for this.
This election is over. Obama will not survive the next two debates. Why? Simply because Obama is mentally ill. It will be pitiful to watch.
After the truth of Bengazi comes to light, our whole nation will know that Obama is given to flights of fantasy and vindictive to those that disagree with him (Romney). When Obama looks at Romney with his cold stare, you think Biden's laugh was unsettling?? Just wait.
According to a retired General. (Keene, I think) who was on Fox News last night there was a drone overhead watching the whole event in its entirety. That is in addition to the State gal being on the phone in real time as well. They KNEW what was going on as it went down, the rest is all lies and cover up.
Forget the video tape. There have always been living witnesses on the ground who could have immediately verified there was never a protest. Haven't they been interviewed? Of course they have, confirmation that two weeks of lies is more than enough reason to see an end to this administration.
It's pretty clear it was not a protest. FOr me the question of who decided to fool the public about a video, needs to be answered.The answer to that will unravel a great deal. Not even Bill Clinton will be able save this one.
...from the Daily Beast...hey...didn't we all see this same article in the ny slimes??...wash post??...and on all the tv networks???....oh wait...we didn't...how much more blatantly partisan can the dishonest media be than to ignore this story???
Right 23 Humed nailed Wallace, a Dem. only the WH schedules who goes on those Sunday shows...that the video is not released gives rise to my suspicions....
Sean Smith was the only one in their that died from smoke inhalation...the third man not identified...Was third man part of Libyan security detail? Did he turn the Ambassador over?? The Ambassadors pics across the net show him in escalating views of undress...shirt comes off, pants unbuckled, then off...One shows his hand up to his eye which is not possible to rub ones eye if dead...
Show the video...it will show the savages removing the Ambassador as they well know ....as the satellites were watching it all unfold.
Rice = knowledge of and cover up. They have telegraphed their fear and lies on national tv for all to see . What disturbs the most is that obama is still in the race. What will it take ? The buck stops with the man in charge no matter whose skirt he tries to hide behind Rice or Hillary.
Well, it’s not like there’s any danger of this stuff crossing the porous border into the US… Tepojaco (Mexico) (AFP) – Mexican authorities scrambled Wednesday to find a truck containing “extremely dangerous” radioactive material used in medical treatment that was stolen by two gunmen two days ago, officials said. The white Volkswagen Worker truck was transporting a teletherapy device containing cobalt-60 when it was stolen Monday in the central Hidalgo state town of Tepojaco, near Mexico City, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency. (Snip)So they found the container, just not the incredibly dangerous material that was in it. The
A fourth student at the University of California Santa Barbara has come down with a strain of meningitis similar to the one that sickened eight Princeton University students in New Jersey, authorities said. The California students began getting sick about three weeks ago, according to a university statement. One student had to have both legs amputated, ABC News has learned. "He´s from my hometown. I hope he is doing well," said David Burkow, another student. "It´s just kind of scary because there is a constant fear." The California school has suspended social events, including sorority and fraternity parties, to avoid
With a ruling by a federal judge on Tuesday that Detroit is eligible to enter bankruptcy, the fate of the city’s art collection — one of the finest in the country — now moves front and center in the legal battle over the city’s future. But the judge, Steven W. Rhodes, questioned for the first time the push by some of the city’s largest creditors to sell paintings and sculpture from the Detroit Institute of Arts, a sale that could generate hundreds of millions of dollars or more. While he did not say specifically that the art should be spared,
WASHINGTON – The National Transportation Safety Board has removed the Association of Commuter Rail Employees as a participant in its investigation into the December 1 fatal derailment of the Metro-North passenger train in the Bronx that killed four people. Organizations designated as parties to investigations sign an agreement to abide by NTSB rules during an investigation, but on Tuesday, the chairman of the union, Anthony Bottalico, spoke to the media and discussed what he thought happened during the derailment and engineer William Rockefeller. “While we value the technical expertise that groups like ACRE can provide during the course of an investigation, it
A truck carrying potentially "extremely dangerous" radioactive material has been stolen in Mexico, the UN atomic watchdog said Wednesday. The International Atomic Energy Agency said the truck was carrying cobalt-60, used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer. An IAEA statement Wednesday said the truck was stolen Monday while taking the material to a radioactive waste storage center from the northern city of Tijuana. The IAEA said the heist occurred in Tepojaco, a town near Mexico City, and describes the load as `´extremely dangerous" if damaged or removed from its protective shielding. It said Mexican authorities are searching for the material. The statement provided
BEIRUT: Hassan Lakkis, the Hezbollah commander who was assassinated outside his Beirut home late Tuesday, had played a key role in advancing the group’s technological capabilities in its fight against Israel and had brushes with death on many occasions, sources told The Daily Star Wednesday. “Lakkis was involved in scientific development and played a key role in developing Hezbollah’s unmanned aerial vehicles program,” a source close to the Lebanese group told The Daily Star on condition of anonymity A security source, who also spoke on condition of anonymity, said Lakkis was also in charge of smuggling arms to Gaza and Egypt.
Four months into his tenure at CNN, Jeff Zucker woke up in his New York City apartment and realized that he couldn’t move his face. “You wake up and you look in the mirror and your face can´t move and you think you had a stroke, and then you go to the emergency room and they diagnose it,” Zucker told Capital during a wide-ranging interview. Zucker was diagnosed with Bell’s Palsy in June, a form of facial paralysis that renders affected people unable to control facial muscles on one side of their face. “It´s definitely better than it was, but
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
