This is nonsense, the right is trying to whip up half-baked theories about Benghazi & Ambassador Stevens' murder, but the plain & simple truth is that he trusted the local miliias too much, he repeatedly turned down multiple inquiries regarding his safety & increased US Military presence at the Embassy in Benghazi. The rest is just Republican efforts to derail a Clinton campaign in 2 years for the presidency.

Regan, Stevens knew what was going to happen and begged for help.

I don't believe or trust anything this administration says (come to think of it the various previous administrations) and if they said it was raining, I'd come out in sandals, t-shirt & shorts and be dry.

Please note that I'm in the UK with much better access to media information than you are. Your media is controlled by Obama, no doubt that.

That NBC is the most liberal major media outlet, but it's nonsense, hmmmm. Who would agree more with the Obama administration's designs and justifications, except maybe the NYT.

No, the fact is the truth hurts. Just about anyone with an open mind and and IQ above 40 knows that the Benghazi attack had absolutely nothing to do with the stupid movie about Muhammad, as this administration went to great lengths to get the public to buy.

The problem, no matter which details one focuses on, the administration handled this incompetently, dishonestly, and the lesson learned is that you CANNOT TRUST the Obama administration for anything. We are safety-belted in the back of a car driven by drunks -- Obama, Clinton, Kerry and the rest, and they are doing the best to hide it, but after a while, when the car goes over the cliff due to the driver being DUI, you just can't hide it anymore.

Thanks, G.

The fact that this is a bipartisan report gives further weight to the story, but even if it was solely a Republican report, so long as the facts are accurate then it would be equally as valid.

Everyone understands the concept of a traitor, but when it actually happens many are unwilling to accept it is happening. This is the case with the current Obama administration. Letting US citizens, the US Ambassador of all people, be slaughtered in order to push for restrictions of free speech when it comes to criticism of Islam is 100% treason in action. Obama and Hillary knew at the very least within a few hours of the attack that it was terrorism, and gave stand down orders, and on top of that for 2 weeks Obama, Hillary and Susan Rice pushed the anti-Islam video angle as the cause, attacking the foundation of the USA: free speech.

Obama's obvious pro-Islam agenda is too much for many people to accept. They'd have to admit they were betrayed. I had to admit that as well, being a former Obama supporter. Having accepted that based on the copious evidence of Obama's pro-Muslim, anti-Christian, anti-Israel position, I now speak out to let others know.

Thank you G for posting this important story.

There were two occasions where Stevens was asked if he wanted help, he rejected the idea both times. If he changed his mind, I'm 100% certain he could have contacted Secretary Clinton directly and gotten exactly what he wanted. He did not.

Easy answer I think to that question Jason.....natural for rightwing extremist to lie and base things on lack facts and truth....Moderate...I don't think so...it's the new strategy for them to start pretending to be 'moderates' as they, rightwing extremist/Teabagers/Racist are the most dislike groups in the nation.
It's also their lies and B.S. , like this article...IMO...that helps all other parties win elections and what will , once again, take down the GOP in future ones.

We can expect more B.S./lies/factless statements in the near future from the Rightwing extremist that come to care2 the closer we get to the next election.....which for everyone but them is a good thing as it is exactly what cost them past elections and will for decades to come. The GOP can't tank an economy, cost millions of lives in wars,lose millions of jobs/homes for Americans as the Rightwing continues to enable their corporate coup of the government and expect to win elections...for decades to come on such a bogus platform.,

I don't know why you people keep letting stooge hacks force feed you one

I detect a certain desperation in the pro-Obama camp! Their idol's demonstrating his anti-American bias more openly, and his administration has become a laughingstock among the powers of the world. The full story of Benghazi has yet to be aired. Now add to that the rigid new secrecy of his policy for Iran. Obama's got us not so much guessing, but leerily anticipating the full shock of what he'll let Tehran get away with.

And his true believers are left to play race cards and project their own venom at Republican dissent. It's quite a circus.

I have some negative opinions pertaining to the reasons why the perpetrators have not been apprehended yet and why the FBI has not been doing a thorough job in investigating the attack. I truly feel another president, whether a democrat or a republican, would have ensure a better investigation into the attack. Because this president is a Muslim, the Islamic Agenda will be protected.

Ignore the spin. The facts speak for themselves. Stevens and others requested additional security over a 6 month period and it was refused. Specific acts of terror were committed against the compound but no action was taken. The British government recognised the danger of a terror attack and pulled out their people.
The reality is that Hilary Clinton and Obama were asleep on the job and as for them getting Susan Rice to lie and say the attack was caused by a stupid video, that is totally beyond contempt.

Jason, there have been many subsequent articles where it was shown that Stevens begged for help and was ignored. There were warnings from many countries about what was about to happen including Egypt. In fact, Egypt was complicit in the attack http://shoebat.com/2014/01/16/senate-committee-confirms-egyptian-tie-benghazi/

Both Clinton & Obama were fully aware of what was going to happen and chose to hang Stevens out to dry.

Even the investigation has had many witnesses report that they have been harassed about giving evidence and that some were not even there. http://dailybail.com/home/obama-not-sure-if-benghazi-witnesses-being-threatened.html

http://www.gopusa.com/theloft/2013/04/30/pressure-coming-down-on-benghazi-witnesses-from-obama-administration/

As for Jae talking about racists, well, he obviously knows all about that. I have only ever seen him make such statements.

G.M....I quote myself from above : "rightwing extremist/Teabagers/Racist "...all as being 'groups' that dislike the president more than the average person shall I say...who are also the most dislike 'groups' in the nation. Facts are facts. From my complete comment 'racist' are the point/name that you picked to come back in my direction with as if 'race ' were the only point made in my comment. Not so and I'm guess you were/are aware of that but chose to ignore the facts in general...as a typical teabager, not a moderate republican would do......IMO. You are right about one thing ..Racism is something I know about...I spent the first 38 years of my life living in 'the south' ....

I happen not to be 'pro Obama'. I happen to be pro truth and pro American/Democracy who believes that both sides need to be working to build a stronger middle class...a growing middle class not a shrinking one as the Republicans have been busy attempting to do for over a decade now. I am pro Middle class with much compassion for the 'poor' and fine with the Rich making a lot of money..but what I am against are those who support the Rich and their lifestyles by subsided tax dollars of the middle class...at a great cost to the poor.

This article is anti Obama and for reasons I am now guessing ,after your comment in my direction about his race,G.M....is about his race more than the issue itself since that's the one... of several ''groups'' that I mentioned [many of which are racist] but the 'racist' group are the only one you try'd to diminish. Not uncommon for rightwing extremist on this site I must say. but to try and pretend/ignore/make little of the fact that 'racist', as well as many from the other groups mentioned, are more often obvious than not..are on/come here for no other reason than to spread, what I see as pure B.S./mistruths/factless info,via/based on.... their personal racism in way too many cases...IMO.

As I've said on other threads...the closer we get to elections the more rightwing extremist groups/individuals will be appearing on care2...that's just expected. What I am surprise at though is that their strategy hasn't changed from those of the past two elections...of which they lost obviously. One would think they'd try something a little different other than to go with the teabager/racist/rightwing extremist in general as all of a sudden all being 'born again moderates'. I would think that the rightwing in general would at least, in hopes swaying some new voters. not continue to chase them away with what I see as crap articles/topics such as this one that at this date are for the most part posted,imo, for the sole surpose of Obama bashing , for the sake of the racist in their groups so ta say . Moderates would be posting petitions for their parties to focus on our nations recovery ...not continue with fighting it...as obstructionist ..aka...the rightwing in Congress have done since day one of Obama's win the first round. Moderates would be wanting fair taxes for all....help for all in need and articles asking the GOP to stop blocking all efforts at creating jobs through infrastructure rebuilding not just jobs as new military recruits for their wars for profits....Moderates should be fighting/supporting higher wages not lower in order for our nation and all it's people to prosper,not just a select few.......... and on and on.

Continuing to fight for corporate interest only isn't going to win the GOP any new voters or keep many of those they once had....continuing to post thread articles simply for Obama bashing , such as I see this one to be, aren't going to win the GOP any new voters either. . . or change anything.....
Jussss say

Jae, as I am in the UK I do not fall into any of your categories. It does not worry me which party is in, they are both controlled by corporations and are corrupt. Even Lincoln used bribery & trickery. The presidents have become worse and worse and are dragging the rest of the West down with them. Obama is taking it for granted that things like the Geneva Agreement with Iran is brilliant and any half way intelligent person knows that it is a joke and that the new president, Rouhani, has no intention of changing his plans while Obama pats himself on the back for being so clever. Many people tell me that he is a great statesman but I see him as a useless child with no idea or training and I have no idea how he got in the second time other than Sandy and voting corruption.

I have seen many articles about Benghazi, it has been made clear from many sources that Obama and senior members of the American governments knew that Benghazi was going to happen and that Stevens was to be offered up. In fact, there have been reliable sources that showed Egyptians coming to claim Stevens as a hostage. Sadly, Stevens had already been tortured, raped, abused and killed by the time this happened. To me, Obama and his government are murderers as they knew this would happen and allowed it before apologising to the Muslims for breathing!

I am angry on behalf of Ambassador Stevens and his family that this happened. To me it is unbelievable that he has not been brought to account over this and most certainly should be impeached. Reagan resigned, this moron doesn't even know how to behave in public!
