So now we know we’ve been lied to about Libya

There was ample communication indicating Islamic unrest and expected terrorism on our embassy there.

It’s two and a half weeks before the election. Do you think it’s enough time to clearly convey the seriousness of the situation and keep Obama from being re-elected?

    I believe it’s already affecting voters, not just the undecided (flakes). There are millions of voters who did not go to the polls for McCain in 2008 that an issue like this may help motivate, even at the last minute.

  2. DICK STEINBERG says:

    Cindy, your anxiety and rush to judgment defies due process of law and a conviction without having all the salient facts. President Wilson said we will not go to war and shortly thereafter we were in WWI. President FDR said we will not go to war and we all know what happened. The Japanese authorities were negotiating peace with us and then bombed Pearl Harbor where we had no defense despite threats of attack. Korea was about not crossing a certain line and yet there was no act of congress to go to War under Presidents Truman and Eisenhower. Vietnam started with President Kennedy sending military advisors and ended after Presidents Nixon and Johnson engaged in secret plans and secret missions. Under President W. Bush we attacked Iraq because of unreliable intelligence and while the Inspectors were not done with their job. There are still competing stories being written about the killings of Lincoln, King, Wallace and the Kennedy brothers. Was the storming of our Embassy in Iran done by students, as written ? Why did we not see the warnings signs of the enemy who entered our country, qualified to fly a jet plane and proceeded without intervention or suspect from our intelligence to cause destruction of the Pentagon, our military symbol of strength and defense of our nation.?. What did we gain from the invasion and occupation of Iraq ? Dictators come and go and we cannot be responsible to kill them all. It is stipulated that some violent people from the mid-east did in Syria attack and kill 4 foreign service people who did not have adequate protection. Blaming our own government institutions consisting of career non-partisan servants will not solve anything. If they followed protocol there is no blame. In my opinion we have a duty to let our government complete the mandatory investigations and render their reports. Remember, there have been prisoners on death row who by careful investigation and scientific data are now innocent people. Do you want a politically motivated decision or do you want the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. let justice prevail.

  3. Not voting g for someone is convicting them?

    Jeeezus I can’t believe how ignorant Obama worshipers can be…

  4. The Lorax says:

    I wouldn’t call Dick Steinberg an Obama worshiper…

  5. Randy in Richmond says:

    Dick

    FDR didn’t have his administration tell us for 2 weeks Pearl Harbor was a

    “reaction to a radio show that had nothing to do with the United States”.

    Or that it was a “spontaneous reaction” to something that happened in Malaya.

    He plainly called it what it was,

    “we were suddenly and deliberately attacked by… forces of the Empire of Japan”.

    That’s called leadership.

  6. DICK STEINBERG says:

    for the record, again, I have many times opined that Romney will win. yes, convicting the President as the one responsible for murder without due process of law and a full investigation of facts, as compelled by the law, is reasonable and prudent. FDR did know the Japanese threatened to attack us and allowed the largest base for our Navy to remain unprotected. He also knew about the Nazi trains to the death camps and refused to bomb the tracks although begged to do so by many .W.Bush knew Saddam did not plan and direct the 9/11 attack. Terry, call me what you want but supporters of President are Americans, many of whom have served and died for their country. ……..and you call them “ignorant”. how sad you must be living, working and dealing with your world of 1/2 ignorant people.

  7. DICK STEINBERG says:

    Cindy did nothing wrong. She just read a Fox News story and assumed our government is lying to the American people. The Warren Commision said that Oswald was acting alone when he killed Pres. Kennedy. I for one do not agree but I do not accuse Chief Justice Earl Warren/ a Republican politician who became a liberal judge, of lying. Believe it or not, Chicken Little says the sky is falling ! and Randy, anyone who served in the military knows that we must preserve top secret information to keep us safe. “a slip of the lip may sink a ship”.

  8. Dick,

    Feel free to start writing coherent rants at anytime. I am appalled that someone incapable of structuring an understandable paragraph, much less structure thoughts in a logical manner, actually served as a judge.

    Thank you

  9. “Cindy did nothing wrong. She just read a Fox News story and assumed our government is lying to the American people. ” – Mr. Steinberg

    I’d say that’s a fair and respectful assessment. I’d also say that Mr. Steinberg makes a thoughtful and compelling argument against rushing to judgement.

    President Clinton lied to us when he said “I did not have sex with that woman”.

    Cindy, you’re suggesting that President Obama has lied to us. What lie specifically are you referring to?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  10. Randy in Richmond says:

    Milton
    Cindy doesn’t say Obama lied to us –she says “we’ve been lied to about Libya”.

    There.

  11. Wait. When did I say anything about Clinton and sex? (And please. I just had breakfast. That wasn’t nice.)

    BTW, whether it comes out or not in the debate, I think eventually America will have to come to terms that the Obama administration, and perhaps even Obama himself, bungled Middle East policy so badly the implications will last for a decade.

    History has a way of righting it all eventually. Sadly, people die in between as it’s handled badly.

  12. Randy in Richmond says:

    I will say the Obama White House is being consistant. It is handling the aftermath of the Benghazi killings in a very similar manner as it did the Fast & Furious debacle. Deny, delay, confuse, blame other governmental agencies, don’t turn over relevant materials for as long as possible, and change the subject on the issue when it surfaces. Some say it’s similar to Watergate. I’ll believe that when somebody provides me a link that lists the names of those killed in the Watergate break-in. And I will sadly provide a list of those killed in Fast & Furious and the Benghazi Consulate if requested.

  13. Randy in Richmond says:

    I have called President Obama a liar. Just off the top of my head, in the recent debate he said this to tens of millions of women across the country:

    “There are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms.”

  14. DICK STEINBERG says:

    Emily Post:”do not pretend to know more than you do”. keeping that in mind what is the foreign policy of the people who post , of:
    Iran
    Israel
    Pakistan
    North Korea
    Syria
    Mexico
    Turkey
    Columbia
    Cuba
    China
    Japan
    what say you ?

  15. BrkfldDad says:

    Dick – feel free to fill in your foreign policy on each, and then we can follow suit.

  16. Randy in Richmond says:

    “Oh what a tangled web we weave,”

    It is now being reported by Reuters that within about 2 hours from the onset of the Benghazi atack, the White House situation room received an email dispatched by the State Department’s Operations Center with the subject line:

    “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.”

    The message reported: “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”

    This is not good for the Obama administration on any level. It further supports Cindy’s title for this Posting.

    Gee Cindy, who knew you have a crystal ball hidden away in a closet. Four years ago you brought up a subject most didn’t want to hear, believe, or apparently talk about.
