    d.  Excellent points but for the common joes and janes we first hear the attack was because of a demonstration against a video no one ever heard of.  Then it was an explanation that our consitution does not allow the government to silence those with regretful and hateful opinions that demean a religion. Then we find out the embassy or the consulate(those are the same for most people) wanted more security and was denied. We now hear that the State Dept, the White House and the CIA are once again not sharing information.  We get our news in soundbites and soundbites do not allow for nuances.  We have to do better.

    •  What? Now that sounds ridiculous. It doesn't (3+ / 0-)

      sound like the State Dept would have reported to the President over the initial security issues that occurred earlier in the day. We have consulates and Embassies in hot spots all over the world and this is the kind of stuff that the State Dept and the CIA deal with on a daily basis. Between the protests going on in Cairo and in other cities over that damn film, what actually happened in Benghazi was always going to take time to seperate rumor from fact. I'm not going to bash the CIA or State just because that idiot Darrell Issa and his little even more idiotic minions "investigate" by goddamned outing our operatives live on freaking CSPAN!

      And if Midiot Rmoney had done what most presidential candidates in history would have done and acted presidential instead of having such a hard on to exploit Benghazi for sheer political purposes before we were even sure anyone was dead, much less who they were and then doubled down on being 1000% wrong the next day by giving a bloody press conference 35 minutes before the President did? If he had acted even the slightest bit like a human, much less like a president, we might already have a much freakin' clearer idea of what happened to those 4 dead Americans.

      More importantly, the families and loved ones of the 4 Americans who died a month ago wouldn't have to see their loved ones used as fodder by the GOP every day and they might have more answers as to how their loved ones died. Place the blame where the blame belongs right now.

      •  I am just pointing out the soundbites (0+ / 0-)

        I am not agreeing with what is being poured out on the radio and tv but unless we give a clearer message people are going to believe this misinformation.  If it is said over and over then it must be true.  I do not want to see Libya become one of Mitt's talking points and I think it is clear that he plans on running with this one as we saw in the VP debate.
