Default Why no thread on Benghazi?

This is big news y'all. I'm curious to hear some of the more liberals thoughts on this topic.

Why? It's not a political issue. Also, I believe there was a thread about it back when it happened two months ago.

I'd like to talk to conservatives about the seven embassy and consulate attacks that happened under the Bush administration. But oh wait, we don't like to talk about those because it's easier to white wash history and after one embassy attack put all the blame on the black president instead of the terrorists who attacked.

Yes, there was - I recall being attacked vociferously by the not-so-dearly departed Blackbanjogirl for pointing out that 1) it was not an embassy/consulate, but a CIA outpost (a fact inadvertently revealed by Issa's hearings); 2) the CIA had attributed the attack to a "spontaneous protest" in its Sept 15 intelligence assessment, which was the basis for UN Ambassador Susan Rice's statements on the matter; 3) the CIA was responsible for providing security at the site, and the failure to do so is ultimately CIA Director David Petraeus' (yes, THAT David Petraeus) tragic error.

Whose placing blame? I'm just wondering if you can believe that two weeks after the attack he still hadn't been clued in that it was indeed a terrorist attack, not a flash mob as the result of a video? Nobody told him?

So what did Obama mean by "acts of terror" in the Rose Garden on Sept 12? Or twice thereafter over the next 2 weeks (don't have the specific dates right now as I'm on my cell, but I can look it up later)?

I'm sure the house and the senate will get to the bottom of it. The truth will come out either for or against Obama.

It already is coming out, which is why the Petraeus Affair(s) broke now. The look on Peter King's face after Petraeus testified yesterday said it all - shellshocked. The hearings were intended to ensnare Obama, but instead have taken down a military hero and likely GOP presidential candidate in 2016.

I'm confused about why this is still the primary topic of interest among the conservative circle. What exactly is the issue here as it applies to the Obama Administration? Besides the fact that 4 people were killed. He called it an act of terror. What else is the issue?

Focusing on it is easier than fixing the current mess in the GOP.

kinda like how much did bush really knew about the 9/11 attacks? Or if Bush was made aware of the situation in New Orleans after Katrina and just decided to ignore our cries for help?

In fairness, there was an exhaustive investigation conducted by a bipartisan commission after 9/11.

NOLA was another matter altogether. Unconscionable.
