    I think that someone should take a close look at the Romney campaign, Bebe Netanyahu, and the funding, timing of the promotion of the video and the attack.  To quote a favorite Fox news source, "some" say that there are dots to be connected.  It seemed a little odd that Mitt delivered a prepared speech while the crisis was happening and nobody else knew how it was unfolding.  

    The only reason that I don't really think that there is a scandal here is that such a conspiracy would require a degree of intelligence and cunning that the Romney campaign did not possess.

      It's often true that the most cunning person is not necessarily the smartest. When I saw that 'AH HA!" look on RMoney's face preceding the 2nd debate Bengazi exchange it was obvious he had been prepared for and relished the opportunity to flack the lie, to poor results albeit. Not necessarily a straight line between that and the curious, probably nefarious funding and production of the (as Mrs. Hayes my fourth grade teacher would have said) "fill-um", but enough unanswered questions that the Inquiring Mind wants to know more. Solely as an opinionated speculation I'd not be surprised to see KR's greasy psuedopodia schmears somewhere up the bowels of that thing. Too bad Cthulu, uh I mean Karl can no longer depend on absolution from a President N'gTharlotep-r'Money if some skullduggery is dug up.

      Just getting a handle on the knobs and dials.... Hey, don't touch that!

      has not been run down. I don't have a theory, and I don't want to put one out there, but something still smells.
      I'd agree with your general sense of where it's coming from.

      You can't make this stuff up.

      and the mercenary war machine he built - Halliburton, Blackwater -

      Anyone know who the contractor for Embassy Security is?

        private contractors.  Perhaps the attack was incited  to make embassy security look weak? I'm not saying it but some might.
