  •  I'm glad there is a diary on this. (10+ / 0-)

    What the hell do they think happened?  I mean what could possibly have happened that is so bad that it would require a cover up?

    I can't figure out this fetish with one tragedy. Do they think it was preventable and there was no action like  a "Bin Laden determined to strike" memo?

    Can someone translate this for me?

      There were Libyan militia held at the CIA annex. The attack was planned to take the Ambassador hostage and try to negotiate the exchange of the Ambassador for the prisoners.

      CIA detention was already illegal.

      Put Pres Obama in a bind, he might have lost the election.

      Remember Romney's obvious glee in that news conference where he pre-empted the President's Presser?

        inhalation. He wasn't the target. He was an innocent bystander.

        Look - it is a tragedy that a foreign ambassador died. He was an American Hero. But, I seriously think that's the end of the story.

        Anyway, thanks for the CT. I guess we'll see if that's what plays out after the "thorough investigation."
