Media coverup in the Benghazi incident

dealgate 5,774 1,032 May 9, 2013 at 07:54 AM
This article pretty much sums up what most people already know: the media covers for this administration. The news gets out anyway but it is really bad when you have legitimate reporters that are asking out of their contracts due to stories not friendly to "team obama" being censored.

I don't think you can rationally come to any other conclusion.

In the real world, when you cover up four murders after the fact, you likely go to jail. In government, you retire with dignity and run for president with full media support.

Up until yesterday, that was the Benghazi scenario following the death of four Americans including our ambassador to Libya.

The Obama administration has lied, stonewalled, bullied, and intimidated – the true marks of an open and transparent administration. And, with a few notable exceptions, the American media haven’t just let them get away it. Heck, they’ve helped.

This is what happens when the GOP wants to find a scandal SOOOOOOOOOO much and blows an event completely out of proportion. The GOP completely ignores every single similar event during GWB's tenure, stonewalling every single investigation attempt. But now this is a huge deal. They haven't earned the confidence of anyone that they won't twist ANYTHING against Obama or Clinton. For example--yesterday, the hearings harped on how Secretary of State Clinton's name was at the bottom of some report/communication--saying that name showed she must have known about what was in that report/communication. But, as it was shown, her name is on EVERY such report/communication and is NOT any indication of a report/communication. It's more evidence showing that there is an ulterior motive here. Clinton is going to be the next president and the GOP is trying to prevent that.

That article is completely devoid of any evidence that there is a scandal that the media is covering up--because if there i no scandal with Benghazi, then the MSM is correct in saying what they have said.

Never argue with idiots. First they bring you down to their level, then they beat you with experience.

They Covered up the most popular guy running for president Last election. Anyone with a search engine and isn't a sheep can name him without a 2nd thought. They covered up Fast and Furious nicely until that got out. No surprise they have less than 15% approval rating now. It's not about left vs right anymore people so stop bring that to the table. Nobody who's paying attention cares. O PS don't be the 15% please.

Because this is completely motivated by politics. 9 fricken hearings, ZERO evidence of wrongdoing. There is only speculation and innuendo. Considering there were a dozen such embassy attacks under GWB with a total of THREE hearings, this smacks of politics. The republicans want something to hit Clinton on and smear Obama. Its politics and nothing more. I thought there was a chance of something back when this started--but after all of this clammering, there has been nothing substantiated.

Clearly lied to? Please. You mean, the initial reports were wrong? Yeah, that's more like it. All of those who spoke about this attack after the event hedged their language that said the initial theory wasn't confirmed. Where are the hearings about the reports after the Boston Bombing that turned out to be false? Good lord. We had a major attack, Romney playing politics with it that night, Libya keeping us out of the area for 18 days and you people expect a PERFECT analysis of the cause immediately after the event. Considering the terrorists actually USED the movie as a cover--all it shows is that their clever plan worked. Not that anyone lied.

But by all means, keep investigating. If you find something--fantastic. They will suffer the consequences. But if all you have in the end is speculation and innuendo, you'll look like the partsian fools you are.

EDIT: I can't spell innuendo very well.

was Bush lying to the country about the attacks? remember, Obama campaigned on a transparent gov.... lying to the people is breaking a promise he made. the fact this does not upset you can be explained only by your bias. if Obama did not lie then I see no problem. if he lied, he's just another dirt bag politician.

And what did the family members bring into the equation? Other than explaining their loss and they're pissed about it? Did they reveal any evidence?

It just illustrates the political nature of this inquiry. I"ll give you one thing--at least it is over something that is more important than a blowjob.

I don't recall a hyper-partisan witch-hunt being assembled before the dust settled after each attack, so there was no reason to.

... and less important than breaking into a hotel and stealing political documents.

Importance.

1. Benghazai
2. Watergate
3. Monica

Keep in mind... Watergate did not just happen and then one or two weeks later, President Nixon was resigning.
