    Another couple of days and Obama's dog walker will get the blame.

    You have to wonder why someone like Petraeus even agreed to continue working under the pig.

    Petraeus didn't get the memo. His role was to fall on the sword for the emperor, as was Hillary and Paneta.
  7. He only has to serve this schmuck for another 10 days.
  8. Obama was in the WH Situation Room during the attack. What do you think he was doing?

    Obama was consulting with his political advisors at the time of the attack and they determined that a coverup was most beneficial to his chances of getting re-relected.

    Then Obama issued the order to do what all politicians do in a time of crisis. They lie.
  11. And then he flew to Vegas cuz that's what matters.

    Only after a good night's sleep.

    However, as to the CIA denial: given the choice between believing the guys on the ground and the guys in DC, I'm going with reports from the ground. If the DCI resigns in protest---something that political generals never seem to do---I'll change my mind.

    Gotta say: Gen P is disappointing me here.

    Been a disappointment to me as well, but I should have payed attention to the cue when he accepted an appointment from O.

    The president knew within the hour exactly what happened and failed to act.

    The motivation was to cover it up and blame some internet meme. Let it burn itself out.

    That way he could still act as though he vanquished all of terrorism by killing bin Laden.

    The violence in Libya was created by a random internet pot-stirrer and was provoked.

    Nothing was to disturb the idea that:

    1. He helped evil dictator Khadafi get killed.
    2. Peace followed as sure as an unearned Nobel Peace Prize
    3. The violence had nothing to do with the Master Plan failing but the was a one-off from the internet agitator.
    4. In the aftermath pretend to be amazed and order an investigation and state that it "will never happen again!".
    5. Underlings throw themselves on their own sword to keep their jobs and the myth of the leader's superiority.
    6. Get re-elected. Shhhhhhhhh…..

    It was Obama's fault and his alone. Clinton should join him on the gallows, but Obama first to the rope.

    Criminal conspiracy to blame the internet nonsense for two full weeks when it had absolutely nothing to do with it, EVER and they were aware from the beginning.

    Failure to faithfully execute his oath of office, and the Ambassador died as did Brian Terry at the border under an administration that does not have the back of those who serve.

    And if you do, you're all on your own. Die in an unapproved politically inconvenient operation and we'll deny all. Even if you end up in an unmarked grave and never heard from again. Even if we have to make up a bald faced lie to cover our backs.

    That's the Chicago thug and the Chicago way. That's all there is to this.

    How is Petraeus stating clearly that no one in the CIA denied help to the guys on the ground a good thing for Barry?

    Anyone not see the logical next question?

    OK General, if you didn't deny the help, who did?

    Seems to me that everyone is carefully putting their denials in place. As long as the media resents it as proof that nothing is wrong here, it all works. "Nothing to see here. Just move along. Wait! Look at that super storm!" But what happens if the story starts to crack? What happens if one. Mainstream media outlet starts asking serious questions.

    I like your question, "Who gave the order?"

    My guess is that Jarrett gave the order... to O., and he gave the order to the military.

    Is anyone actually postulating that this is a good thing for Barry? :dunno:
