Hicks didn't answer 2 calls from Stevens, cuz he was watching TV and didn't want to be bothered by a number he didn't recognize.

How come the hearings haven't found the stand-down order from the White House?

What details of this 'stand-down' order have they found?

You know that it was really a CIA Diplomatic Safe House" and under the CIA control.

Do you also know that it was the Republicans that defunded the Security to these outposts, Not Obama.

I guess it doesn't matter to these morons, it's all about making Obama and the Dems look bad, and they are willing to believe any lie,
They just can't enough good lies these days, they must get a hard on for every new lie that comes out the lying douche bag mouths

"You mean to say thet Obama said "go get them", and the general said "no, we won't even try" ? Is that how you think it went down?"

You're an idiot. Quit trying to second-guess military operations you have no knowledge of, and no way of knowing anything about. You know absolutely nothing - everyone here knows that.

Uh, no. Did you watch his testimony? He took the 'unknown' call.

Again, did you watch Hicks' testimony? The spec-ops guys were pissed that they got that order. They wanted to go!

He finally took the 3rd call Bluey. Silly boy, get yer facts right.

Still no evidence of a 'stand-down' order from the White House Bluey.

Yep, 4 guys in Tripoli wanted to fly in to Benghazi, fight their way to the annex, secure the neighborhood so mortars could'nt be used on the cia annex.

Heheheheheheh. Comical view of our capability. Yer quite the patriot Bluey.

Before I call "bullshit", I'd like you to explain exactly how that could happen.

What are you, nine years old?

POTUS: "General XYZ, what are our options here, can we get a team there quickly?"

GENERAL: "No sir Mr. President, if we scramble immediately, it will be X amount of time, here are our realisic options....":


The only bullshit around here is flowing from the mouths of the usual ST simpleton contigent.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates, a Republican who served in both the Bush and Obama administrations, said if he had been at the Pentagon at that time, "Frankly I think my decisions would have been just as theirs were.

How do you know the President was consulted?

Even if he was consulted, how did they know how long the attack would last while it was still happening?

You're mincing the hell out of the situation. The FIRST call he got was the key.

When a consulate comes under heavy attack, what is the proper response? What would you expect your gov't to do?

why do you presume there was a live feed during the attack?

perhaps because there was a live feed when we killed Bin Laden?

when we had months to carefully plan our attack on him, you assumed we just whipped out live feeds all the time nowadays?

doesn't work that way in the real wold

So now you deny there was a Predator live-feed of the attack?

Do you just want to make sh#t up to fit your narrative? The Ambassador called for help! And yeah, there were 2 drones shortly after that call!

We sent no help.

Benghazi, the IRS thing and the AP phone records subpoena have all been retired to the tea party / fox echo chamber. No one cares any more, if they ever did to begin with. Goodbye.

nothing to see here, lah-lah-lah, no problemo.....

Just because you wish for something, doesn't mean it's going to happen. The facts, and real reporters will bear the truth out. We'll see.

Already over and done with, son. They've been having congressional hearings since November. Repubs have failed to gain anything political out of Benghazi, and now simply look childish insisting there must be more to it. They were even stupid and desperate enough to resort to distributing fake emails of WH talking point revisions, which of course blew up in their faces.

Time to grow up and face the facts, kid.

It's not the f*#k-up. It's the cover up. Think "Watergate".

Emails have already been released. Petraeus's deputy had references to terrorism omitted to protect ongoing CIA op sec. No cover-up.

But it's your fantasy, and no amount of facts are going to talk you out of it. Enjoy!

Those hearings are not finished yet. Some people are still seeking the facts.

Not the rhetoric, not the cover-up.

"Those hearings are not finished yet. Some people are still seeking the facts."


There are no new hearings scheduled. Issa wants Pickering and Mullen to testify in private - Pickering and Mullen are refusing, and insist on testifying in open hearings. This, Issa wants no part of - for obvious reasons.

It's over. Repubs can't spend any more political capital on Benghazi, because they've already lost too much credibility on it, by manufacturing and distributing the fake talking point emails. They need to save what little they have left for the IRS hearings. - which won't go anywhere either.
