"We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was an attack- not a protest"- Hillary on the day of the Benghazi attack
She lied, but I think Obama likely had to approve any story/spin before any announcements by Hillary or Rice.
She's the worst 💩
The video has already been debunked
Wait, I'm sorry. So there weren't riots at US embassies around the world because of the video?
It was a terror attacking planned several days, maybe even weeks in advanced with multiple warnings from the embassy and and Libyan government. Even major news outlets recognize that
Yes, it was a terrorist attack. So, how do we know this? We had riots at various embassies in 9-11 and the days after. I guess everyone should have just ignored that and only focused on the annex in post-civil war Libya.
So, how did they know it was a terrorist attack?
BTW, there were warnings at ALL diplomatic outposts, embassies, and facilities. All of them.
I'll answer my own question.
Because they launched an investigation to find out what happened, all the while other sht was going down at other embassies.
I remember reading comments in SoH that people claimed that Obama watched the whole thing, live, on video.
You guys have been manipulated in making up an alternative story and ignore the historical record and context.
It wasn't a bunch of random angry Muslims with Molotovs and blades. It was a planned attack with special equipment by a terror group. Security concerns about terror attacks in Benghazi were recorded well before the video's conception
What did they do? What did they do?!
"The attack in Benghazi came the month after a congressional report warned about al Qaeda’s growing presence in Libya."
Yes, they were. What did congress do besides cut the State Dept budget each and every year? They cut embassy security funding. They had intelligence reports that said they needed to do something and did NOTHING. Zero.
Who's decision was it to go to Benghazi in the first place?
Answer: Ambassador Stevens
You can read that in any of the 9+ reports
I think it's hilarious that no one could be wrong about what happened in the early hours following the attack or even acknowledge they weren't totally sure, but now that the facts are available, you choose to believe in some alternate narrative that doesn't mesh with history.
"Hillary Clinton lied!", says the people that continue to lie about what really happened.
You'll notice other embassies weren't attacked because it wasn't the rioters in charge. It was Ansar al Shariah and it was well planned and organized with military weaponry. They were planning the attack for weeks and the video was only dubbed in Arabic in early September. Hillary's choice to lie and blame the video just adds to people's mistrust of her. Also it was planned for 9/11
You didn't read the article I posted. Yes, other embassies were attacked and other attacks were thwarted.
"the video was only dubbed in Arabic in early September"
Yes true. Created in July, dubbed in September
I'm sorry, so again...embassies were not attacked because of the video?
Because we had embassies attacked on 9-11 and days later. You cannot change history to fit a new narrative.
Did you even watch Hillary's statement?!
In her OWN words!
Video must be a fake Hillary I guess...
My apologies, you're correct. The video was available in July, dubbed Sept 4th. Public opposition to the video occurred prior to sept. I stand corrected.
"Did you even watch Hillary's statement?!"
Yes. Embassies WERE attacked because of the video. The annex was not because of the video. Nonetheless, our embassies were attacked.
I know everyone should have known exactly what happened 3 days after while the investigation was under way, just like you all know what happened 4 years later after numerous investigations and hearings.
Please read this
I'm taking her at her word.
Not someone attempting to explain what she said.
She said it.
Ok, but is she wrong? There were riots underway (at that moment) when she said it, because of the video.
But she listed Benghazi RJ.
She said it. Why the hell are you attempting to try to excuse her? Why?
Makes no sense.
It seems as though you're toeing the party line on this and if that's the case, my opinion of you is about to change...
Next you're going to attempt to say she didn't lie about her emails and there's video of her lying.
So I guess video of a person saying something is not enough to prove someone said something?!
No, stop with the he slippery slope.
And stop with the new history. The narrative. In 2012 it was all about Obama and Benghazi. Now, it's Hillary and Benghazi. There's a central (irrelevant) theme going on that some people seem to embrace. I'm just pointing out that they are misinformed and irrational.
And you don't think that's crazy?
To take that position?
They say something, people have video of it, you show that video and the watcher says "they didn't say that"...?
That's weapons grade insanity.
Obama and Clinton are not under oath 24/7. They can say things, right or wrong. You've got the benefit of years and years of investigations to get you 'gotcha' moment. You're literally criticizing people for not knowing the same answers 4 days after it happened.
Care to go back to my polls?
I said Hillary then.
I say it now.
My position did not change.
She said it.
Zero excuse for it.
There were riots at our embassies on 9-11 and days after. Period. That's a fact. You cannot dismiss that.
Because it was 9/11...
I'm not dismissing anything.
Still did not have shit to do with some stupid video.
And what amazes me is how these 4 people amount to way more than the 4,000 that died in Iraq over a BS narrative. And yet, no outrage.
Like I said, the attack at Benghazi wasn't video related. All do the others going on at the same time were.
She said Benghazi was.
That's what this is about.
The video had nothing to do with it.
She said it did.
You're saying she was "mistaken".
She's now saying she never said it.
Video does not lie.
Why you aren't saying it is beyond me.
I have video, that proves she said it then and video she's lying now.
She can say whatever 4 days into a major international investigation into a para-militarized assault on our personnel.
You have the luxury of judging AFTER the investigation were conducted.
And she has some nerve calling the families of the fallen liars...
Through and through.
This whole Benghazi thing has no logic behind it. None. Let's all get pissy over....whatever! Benghazi!
What are the sentiments of the former Ambassador's family that was killed?
She's saying she never said it...
This isn't after the fact anything.
3 days ago, she said she ALWAYS knew it was a coordinated attack.
She lied then.
She's lying now.
Read their statements. Not the manipulated talking points of some distraught woman.
Ok, I'll review her more current statements, because I'm not current with them.
So the mother is lying?
That's what this whole poll was about.
Her recent statements!
The mother has an IQ of 50. No, seriously. She's being worked, letting her son get dragged through the mud for politics. Horrible. Please...read the sentiments of ambassador Stevens' family.
I said this back then, I'll say it now.
This was never on Obama, it's always been on the State Department.
Who's been fired?
Who's been held accountable?
The fact these people are being used for politics...again (2 presidential elections in a row) is pathetic.
Because there sentiments mean more because they align better with your political opinion.
This is about the outright failure of a game verb menu agency that got my brethren killed.
"This was never on Obama, it's always been on the State Department.
Who's been fired?
Who's been held accountable?"
For what?! For not using superpowers and stopping Stevens from doing what they said not to do?! He made the call to go, against all advisement!
Stevens made the call to go.
And they requested more security.
They requested reinforcements during.
They requested extraction during the pause.
Of course they did. It's kind of hard to accommodate when congress keeps cutting you budget.
Look at the thread above. It's been covered.
They requested extraction?
Congress got a warning on Libya security and ignored it. Congress had cut state dept budget in successive years.
The private operators and civilian personnel.
Republicans care, so much, about....
Excuse, excuse, excuse...
So that's what I can expect?
8 more years of "it's the republicans fault"...
If only the benevolent Democrats could just have whatever they request when requested...
I'm going to vomit.
Hillary lied then.
She's lying now.
Video proves it.
I'm not going into anything else except what she said then (lie) and what she's saying now (lie).
Much like her emails (more lies).
She's a habitual liar.
If this were a Republican, I'd be all over it exactly the same way.
This is not political to me.
Sad that it is for you.
I don't give two shits what Republicans care about, they equally fumble responsibility.
Look at Iraq.
Dems AND Republicans are on the hook voting for it.
She's a liar? 😆
Of course she is! No duh. They all are! Some are just better than others.
So when I bash Republicans, you're all on board for that.
I beat up on Dems, you feed me the same shit *insert random left winger user name here* gives me...?
You can't be RJ.
Did veritas hack your account?!
She awful at it.
She forgets cameras videoed her saying things and today is like, I didn't say that.
Reporter: Roll the video.
Her: wasn't me
Reporter: but it's you... Talking.
Her: yeah, but those aren't words coming out. I was humming.
Her: yeah but what I meant wasn't what I sad...
Alright, alright. Let's just kill this thread here. I feel sorry for ik.... Who set up the poll and is on this thread. We've b
Own it up. Bad.
As a matter of fact, the president would've gotten his talking points from the State Department information filtered through multiple government entities.
If anything, her guilt gets Obama off the hook.
Well this topic pisses me off because it's been made into a political mockery while 4 people lay dead at the hands, of yet another, government choke job on security of American personnel on foreign soil.
We're both sorry Ike.
We go hard when we go.
Hive give Tilt. You are, after all, the best.
I have equals.
Of course she and Barry knew it was an Islamic terrorist attack on the fricken anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attack... Yeah right.... A Christian caused thousands of Islamists to coordinate a multiple attack on our embassies in 9/11. They must really think we're idiots.
