Shame on Daryl Issa and old bitter John McCain. They put months of work, and many lives in danger just to help Romney. Vote Issa out of office.

It's his job to look into it. Shame on whoever muted the story after the AP and Reuters reported it on the 11th and 12th. The WH only backed away from the 'crowd of a video' statement when Reuters came out with the video of the attack as it was happening. Then of course the FBI could not get there for weeks, but CNN was able to get the journals ambassador.

No matter who wins the election, when "news" finally reports this, people will have to live with the simple fact that not since Nixon have we been lied to like this.

republicans are always trying to forget george w bush and his scary vp. those two should be in prison. issa wants to waste time and money investigating everything that the Obama administration does. i wish we had put some time and money into investigating bush and his cohorts. but, President Obama didn't want Pelosi to do that ...he wanted to get things done for our country. republicans should all be put out of office...they get nothing done!

Amen to that!

The two of them just come out with threats and accusations without knowing or trying to learn the truth of a situation.

Here's hoping the people of Issa's district wake up and send him back to s tealing cars and starting fires for a living.

McCain recieved security briefing and of course, they shared the intel with other Repub.

Besides, 10 countries took part in the NATO air strike know Benghazi was/is a CIA ops. UK is a big part of the ops too. Libran govt is part of it too. State Depart has two contracts for "local security contractors" payable on May 3 2012. Despite that, Benghazi was NEVER listed as U.S. consultate on State Depart website.

So Repub know about this CIA ops and decide to play checkmate with Obama knowing he could not admitt or out an active CIA ops.

So, in your opinion, there was no occasion on which the CIA requested information be withheld during any other administration? What about the moment when the opposite happened and an agents identity was deliberately revealed putting her and who knows how many others in danger, all in aid of political points?
09:42 PM on 11/03/2012
In that instance, no one died, and the news media reported on it non stop for at least 2 years.

4 Americans are dead because our President and those at the highest level of government denied military support during a 7 hour firefight. Fox news is not complicit in their deaths--the White House is.
There is a cover-up and stonewalling and there was an arrest of a film maker (who is still in jail) who had nothing to do with this incident.
Read this from a CNN reporter about what really happened in Egypt. Her name is Amber Lyon. The riot in Cairo was to release the Blind Sheik.

The "film maker" in question was arrested for violating his probation. I know you will say I am naive but the conviction, sentence, and subsequent illegal actions of the man are all publicly available information. In addition, while you are all busy trying to create a controversy agents are still in the field, doing their jobs to protect YOU.

Obama witheld the info because they had CIA field operators in Libya, and didn't want to expose their presence to potential terrorist who would love to capture one.

Why is this so hard to understand? If the news agencies reported, all they would have done was expose informants and in country operators.

Yes if involves national security. It is illegal and unethical for anyone to release classified information--especially political leaders. Both Obama and Hillary was willing to take the blame to protect our CIA intelligence operation in Libya. The Bush administration did just the opposite. Under Cheney's direction, CIA agent Valerie Plame was "outed" to discredit her husband wrote an OpEd piece revealing that Saddam was not attempting to buy yellow cake uranium which contradicted the administration's reason for invading Iraq. Valerie was an expert on WMDs and her CIA mission was compromised by the Bush administration who released her name. Cheney's chief of staff went to jail for this scandal.

People need to make more fun of Islam so they get over how seriously they take themselves, Christians used to be crazy like Muslims back in the day, but they got over it and Christians take really bad insults. Hillary told Mr. Woods that they would find and arrest this guy who created the movie. I guess free speech isn't a big deal in her world. Too many Muslims are stuck in a medieval mindset, can you imagine if Colbert or Stewart made some fun of Islam. What would happen, would they be arrested too?

The filmmaker was wanted by law enforcement for violating parole on his bank fraud conviction and he was eventually arrested. In the 90s he was a meth dealer. He could be brought up on additional fraud charges concerning the making of the film. Hire actors and lied about the content of the movie, thus putting the actors in danger as targets for retribution by Muslim extremists.
02:02 PM on 11/04/2012
Those actors have to be pretty stupid if they don't think muslims would be offended by it. Where have they been the past few years? Mars?  Hillary mentioned nothing about his probation violation to Mr. Woods, she straight up said he'd be arrested for the video. Don't think for a second he wouldn't have been arrested if he had no probation violation.

Especially the first responders who were exposed to hazardous materials,while trying to save others. Up until Obama administration, THEY COULD NOT GET HEALTHCARE. WTFU!!!

What reality are you living in? Why are you upset with Romney about the devastation on the East Coast--he is not President--Obama is. Obama and his administration are responsible for sending resources. Romney was not President during 9/11 and if you are worried about healthcare, Romney established healthcare for all citizens in Massachusetts. He is a businessman; highly intelligent; very frugal; was a pastor and missionary; has 5 glorious sons which is the best testimony to one's worth as an individual.
Obama should be in jail and it is very possible when all is said and done--that is exactly where he will be. The Senate hearings begin on November 15th--be sure to tune in.

Romney aid he would repeal Obamacare and abolish federal disaster response agencies like FEMA. Romney is a business man but he did leverage buyout by buying failed companies, racking up their debt, bankrupting them or shipping their jobs oversees and then making millions while workers become jobless and stockholders hold the debt. Romney was such a bad governor, Obama has a two digit lead in Mass. But the worst is his ability to lie about every issue based on this audience.

I am glad Senate hearing will begin soon to prove Obama did nothing illegal.

You have a believing is seeing problem. WH had NEVER mentioned "SEAL Team 6' ever. The press did because it was easy to figure that out which team executed the task. But wait.

Another BIG reason the WH has not mentioned "SEAL team 6" is the team had been DISSOLVED in 1987. Navy has established a team called DEVGRV.

Here’s what you will not hear from FoxNews. The truth. 

Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Thursday that CIA security officers went to the aid of State Department staff less than 25 minutes after they got the first call for help from the consulate, which was less than a mile from a CIA annex. The detailed timeline provides the first in-depth look at how deeply the CIA was involved in the rescue attempt.
U.S. officials described the timeline in a clear effort to rebut recent news reports that said the CIA told its personnel to "stand down" rather than go to the consulate to help repel the attackers.
As the events were unfolding, the Pentagon began to move special operations forces from Europe to Sigonella Naval Air Station in Sicily. U.S. aircraft routinely fly in and out of Sigonella and there are also fighter jets based in Aviano, Italy.

Yeah....the Seals were told to stand down 3 times and then disobeyed and went anyway. General Ham of Africom was relieved of duty after also defying an order to stand down and is now taking an early retirement. Admiral Gaoutte as been reassigned to Bremerton, WA after also trying to render aid and being told to "stand down"--this administration left men on the field to die. That is the truth. Help could have been there in one hour. If not for Fox News, the lie of the video tape would still be being spit out all over the networks. One might also ask why Ambassador Stevens was given explicit orders to "remain in Benghazi September 11th"---you can find this in an article by Steven Hayes of the Weekly Standard.
Fox News is the only place you will get ANY truth. The rest of the sycophant media is drinking at the altar of Obama.

If Fox News is the truth and not bias, then why are so many Fox News personalities campaigning as surrogates for Romney?

The Weekly Standard is a Conservative magazine and their journalism has no credibility like Fox News. Every time a read an article about Benghazi or any other issue from Fox, Forbes, or Washington Times, their information is debunked-----by other Republicans. After the GOP convention, a Romney spokesperson said that their campaign will not be ruled by "fact-checker" so we now the extreme Conservative wing of the party and their news outlet have always been practicing "loose with the truth" method of politics. It is the only option in effort to sell voter a radical form of Conservatism other than voter suppression and dirty campaign tricks.

The spurious inaccurate reporting by Fox has been disputed by their own people. There will be no October surprise no matter what Fox concocts to spread misdirection and falsehoods. 

This is not the first time Fox's own analysts have contradicted the network's anti-Obama narrative on Libya. On the October 25 edition of Happening Now, Gen. Keane denounced criticism of the military response to the Benghazi attack as "second guessing at its worst," adding that "what we do know would suggest that the response was pretty good."
In an October 22 opinion piece for The Hill, Fox commentator Juan Williams offered three "corrections" for what he describes as "deliberate misinformation" from Republicans about the Benghazi attack. Fox News has been pushing those same misleading narratives.
