Understanding the GOP’s
Benghazi Obsession

Time Magazine, by Michael Crowley

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 2/21/2013 2:08:19 PM

For the past five months, the Republican message on foreign policy message has been defined by a single word: Benghazi. Ever since the deadly September 11 attack on the U.S. compound in that Libyan city, Republicans have obsessed over the episode. Mitt Romney made Benghazi a favorite talking point in the 2012 campaign home stretch. More recently, Republicans have invoked Benghazi to shoot down one would-be cabinet nominee, Susan Rice, and delay two others, Chuck Hagel and John Brennan. They have dragged a parade of administration officials, including Hillary Clinton

Comments:
You can tell this has Barry and his media lackeys nervous. This is a whitewash piece which pretty much acknowledges the incompetence and subsequent cover-up, but then wonders why people insist on getting to the bottom of it.
America better keep up the pressure because this stinks.

GOP trying to get the truth out of the Dems about a scandal is called an Obsession.

Media covering for said Dems should be called a disgrace.

Remember the Valerie Plane affair? That was a complete pseudo-scandal made up out of whole cloth by leftists within our government - an investigation initiated without an underlying crime - a complete farce and total witch hunt, and these clowns have the nerve to ask what the GOP´s obsession is ?
We have credible evidence of the POTUS and Sec. State, both with documented histories of lying to the public, conspiring to cover-up the murder of several U.S. citizens, including an ambassador, to conceal the fact that their policies have failed and that they ignored warnings of the attacks. Bill and Hillary got away with the flight 800 cover-up, Barry and Hillary ought not skate away from this.

The Accountability Review Board can hardly be classified as independent. Hillary appointed the members.

Dereliction of duty, which Obama appears guilty of, is a high crime.

Perhaps Mr. Crowley would next like to explore the Left´s obsession with kissing Barack Obama´s posterior. And what about obsessions? Was the left´s endless coverage of Watergate an obsession? No one died. Iran-Contra? Bush and supposed cocaine use...supposed TANG misadventures...a DUI 20 years before running for president...Robert Bork...Clarence Thomas...Scooter Libby, etc Matthew Crowley is either a true believer or an idiot.

Who was briefed on the situation as part of a scheduled 5 PM half hour meeting with Defense and Intelligence but made no follow ups over the course of the night - Obama

Who sought no information from Defense or Intelligence - Hillary Clinton

Who received the only known communication from Obama around 10 PM - Hillary Clinton

Who made the first reference to a cheesy video - Hillary Clinton

I found it interesting that within the entire article, no mention was made of what happened. Oh, it was "deadly" and a "tragedy" and he even made a vague mention of 4 American deaths. But nothing was described or explained as though we ALL know exactly the incident that the author refers to because it´s been explained so well so many times.

What a load of hogwash.

Gee Michael. With a puff piece like this you may be invited to the next presidential trap shoot at Camp David.
By the way in case you didn´t notce, no on was fired at State for this incompetence, they were merely hidden in other jobs.
Gany Crowley sould have been fired for the misinformation she provided at the debate, and it was obvious that she had been prepared by the 0blamer machine for that scene.
Further there is an ill w blowing in the mieast today, in case you had not noticed.
Maybe you should watch 2016 for some original, if seemingly outrageous ideas.
Just keep them in the back of your mind if you get short of ideas for a motive.

We must accept the fact that our president cares nothing about those Americans killed in Benghazi - one ambassador, one consulate employee, two CIA operatives that were former Seals. Obama does not care about anyone other than his daughters and Valerie Jarrett. He only cares about his own power.

The legacy media is beginning to admit to themselves they have been duped and used. It´s too late for them to do the right thing.

As for Hillary, she cares only about her political future. She has no value and will be almost 70 years old, older than Goofus Biden, when she hopes to run form president. An old white Democrat surrounded by more old white Democrats.

It is becoming more and more clear Obama does not plan to leave in 2016.

What is it with these lib-idiots with the last name Crowley. First Candy, then Monica (who´s sis is married to bagface Alan Colmes) and now this dope. I´m so sorry to burst your bubble(head) Mikey but you nitwits in the press have helped Odumbo and his administration lie, cover up and dismiss the truth about Benghazi. The GOP liquid spined eunichs need to pound this issue to get to the truth of the matter. The people who died and those that were injured deserve nothing less. Also if this keeps the Obamanation under it´s well deserved black cloud so much the better.

First, Obama and Clinton denied our people any security in a nation that barely had a government and had a violent revolution. That is a gross violation of common sense and worthy of a charge of homicide against those that refused to provide any security and for Clinton because of her refusal to do her job.

While our people were under attack no effort was made to rescue them despite the fact that we had jets 1 hour away in Italy. Someone told our on the scene Seals to stand down and do nothing while our people were murdered. Obama even fired an admiral and general for refusing to obey an order to provide no help. Lastly, even though Obama knew that our people were being murdered, he got good night’s sleep. Clinton was right about 3 AM phone calls.

After the attack Obama´s primary concern was preventing knowledge of his failures from affecting his reelection. He spent weeks lying about a video. He lied again in the debate when he claimed that he called it a terrorist attack. Then there was his promise to make the attackers pay for these murders. It was a lie. Obama doesn´t want to catch them. He must be afraid of what these terrorists will say? Was Obama providing weapons to Al Qaeda? Did they use the weapon Obama provided to murder our people? Judging on Obama´s past actions, such as fast and furious, you have to expect the worst from Obama.

So in light of these failures and the murders of our people why hasn’t Time and the rest of the Obama media asked any questions of Obama? Why haven’t they investigated this disaster? The answer is that they aren’t reporters anymore. They belong to the Goebbels school of journalism now.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Global warming is not being taken seriously and time is running out to avoid consequences like flooded cities and dried out farmland, World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said Thursday.

An autopsy on Peaches Geldof was inconclusive and toxicology tests will be conducted in an attempt to determine what killed the 25-year-old celebrity, police said Wednesday. Geldof was pronounced dead by paramedics at her home in southeast England on Monday. Kent Police said a post-mortem examination had not revealed the cause and a toxicology report could take several weeks. Geldof, the daughter of Irish musician Bob Geldof and the late TV presenter Paula Yates, had worked as a model, writer and television show host. She grew up in the glare of Britain´s press, which reveled in the late-night antics of her teenage years, and

Why President Obama

The President is no economic illiterate, despite what conservatives think. He understands basic macroeconomics just fine, thank you – but with a twist. Mainstream Democrats worship at the altar of the New Deal. It’s an article of faith that massive government spending pulled America out of the Great Depression. (With all respect to Paul Krugman, the truth is more complicated, but that’s not within the scope of this article.)The president’s view of spending, deficits and debt is not merely Keynesian theory run amok. Its origins and objectives are far more terrifying. Where the traditional Democratic playbook for economic downturns was provided

WASHINGTON — About the only thing former President Ronald Reagan doesn´t have named after him is a mountain, not one recognized by the federal government anyway.(snip)Rep. Jared Huffman, D-Calif., said he thought DeFazio´s amendment was "terrific" but wanted to take it a step further and name the planet after Reagan. "We may want to consider going big with this Reagan-naming enthusiasm," Huffman said. "I´m beginning to see some possibilities in this." Huffman said his reasoning was that if the planet were named after Reagan, then Republicans might be more concerned with taking up legislation dealing with global warming.

Poll: 62 Percent Of Americans Believe

A majority of Americans believe that President Barack Obama’s signature health care law will be repealed. A new Rasmussen Reports poll found that 62 percent of likely voters believe that Republicans will repeal Obamacare, which recently marked its fourth anniversary. Only 23 percent of those polled believe that the health care law has been a success, compared to 46 percent who describe the law as a failure. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, a potential 2016 presidential candidate, offered a Republican alternative to Obama’s health care overhaul last week, saying states should play a greater role in containing health care costs while

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
