The defense from Barack Obama himself at the last presidential debate is that the "spontaneous demonstration" story is what they were hearing from the intel community. This makes it very clear that their their excuses are false, at least in large part.

From the article:

The leak of this information is very interesting indeed, too. The defense from Barack Obama himself at the last presidential debate, as well as Susan Rice in the Wall Street Journal, is that the “spontaneous demonstration” story is what they were hearing from the intel community. This makes it very clear that their excuses are false, at least in large part, let alone the fact that State watched the attack unfold in real time and has video of the event, a fact revealed at the House Oversight Committee hearings last week. Unlike Hillary Clinton, the intel community apparently has no intention of being scapegoated for the White House’s cover story. That’s a big, big problem for Barack Obama and his righteous indignation.

Obama does have a problem here and I hope it won't affect the elections.

Obama, Rice and Clinton were caught obviously lying, and not just misusing a word, or two.

Telling people that the attack on the embassy which included mortar fire, detailed logistics and hundreds of Islamic militants conducted on 9/11 it certainly not a "mob reaction" to a movie, made so popular by Egyptians, who decided to air it for their whole population.

For any manager on any decent level, the rule is "whatever happens on your guard, you are responsible". Now we should not let Obama to get away with this incompetence without any consequences.

The CIA probably helped set up the attack!

Sure, Robert. You've got an interesting point. I bet, that you would say that CIA is full of enemies of Americans, who don't live in America, practice a different cultural values and even hardly speak English. Those monsters are always ready to harm peaceful Americans. Am I right?

Please keep up with the insight, I am listening...

I checked your link. Looks like you're talking to yourself.
You and Robert O make a wonderful couple.

" But the most important take-away from the Benghazi fiasco is the nakedly cynical, self-serving behavior of the Obama administration. Four Americans were killed, in a terrorist attack on a facility that should have been protected better, but – because of decisions made by Obama’s appointees – was not. Instead of manning up to what happened and providing the answers that are owed to the people, the administration first built a specious narrative about why the attack was launched, as if that was what mattered, and then spent weeks claiming that it was too early to answer questions on almost any aspect of the topic.

Now the administration has directed senior military officers not to answer questions from Congress. There is no conceivable reason for this, other than to stymie progress on the House’s inquiry."

Once again with the political lies Dear Paula, tisk, tisk. One could put aside the fact that HotAir is a blatant reich-wing conspiracy and propaganda rag created by Michelle Malkin, who makes Michelle Bachmann look sane, then sold to Salem Comm., a Theocratic Radio/Internet propaganda empire, but why leave out the obvious bias shown in all of your sources for "facts and information". I am actually surprised that you did not validate it with crap from Glenn Beck's "The Blaze" another of your favorite sources for "facts".
From "The National Review", which is know for impartial and unbiased reporting. Sunday, Oct. 21, 2012; "Report: CIA Documents Support Rice's Account." "CIA documents that will be the basis of testimony to the House Intelligence Committee this week support the United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice's early account...."Talking Points" prepared by the CIA... support her discription... as a reaction to Arab anger about an anti-Muslim video...." There is also the fact that the Benghazi locals stated that the attackers "attacked" using the "demonstration" as a cover.
Four other facts that must be considered. 1) Romney in his wonderful 47% video side from denigrating almost half of the American population also said that he would use for political advantage of any thing resembling thBenghazizi(not by name) demonstration and attack. 2) The Repug/Tea Bagged controlled House bears blame for the success of the attack and the resulting deaths by the very fact that over the last 2 years they have cut more than $300 Million from the State Department Security Budget and plan to cut it nearly in half in the future. 3) The Anti-Muslim video had as one of its major funders Pam Geller's Islamophobic organization, the same group responsible for all of the hate, fear and war mongering ads on subways. 4) Benghazi is if for nothing else known to be the area that has provided more Anti-American terrorists in Iraq than any otheplacece on Earth.

Lloyd, who can call THIS as a "spontaneous mob reaction":
1. Getting together hundreds of Islamist fighters in one place under one command;
2. Getting good ammunition, including mortars;
3. Conducting professional intelligence on the compound;
4. Making plans on the attack, known to many;
5. Scheduling the attack on 9/11, to commemorate the Great Islamic Attack on US.

Don't you think too many surprises, like 5 in 1?And for an intelligent man, like Obama, deliberately calling it "mob reaction on a video" is a really "nakedly cynical, self-serving behavior of the Obama administration"??

Does the President lie? Is the Pope Catholic?

And everybody forgets that all four dead Americans were known militants/terrorists in wartime. Even the IT guy was past of the Iraq invasion force, the ambassador played a direct role in the bombing campaigns, USA has not "declared "peace with Libya, and so on.
