    The Fox-induced hysteria over Benghazi collapses

    The Fox-induced hysteria over Benghazi collapses

    8:45 am November 5, 2012, by Jay
    What happens when a lie goes astray?
    You may recall the right wing’s hysteria last week over the way that events had supposedly played out in Benghazi, Libya. Stoked by inflammatory, deeply irresponsible misreporting on Fox News, they insisted that this scandal was bigger than Watergate, and that for his cowardice President Obama would be disgraced as commander in chief and impeached and removed from office should he win a second term.
    Oh, they were in fine, fine form, braying like so many hounds certain they have finally treed the fox.
    President Obama, we were told, had AC-130 gunships within an hour of Benghazi but refused to use them to try to intervene on behalf of his ambassador. We had Special Forces units ready to go just two hours away, at Sigonella Air Base in Sicily, but a cowardly Obama again barred a rescue operation, fearful that it might endanger his re-election if it went astray.
    And twice — TWICE!!! — former SEALs at a nearby CIA compound had requested permission to intervene in the assault on the U.S. consulate, but twice they had been ordered to stand down and do nothing. Finally, the ex-SEALS defied orders from Washington, made their way to the consulate and rescued some of their fellow Americans. Obama, in contrast, was ready to just let them all die.
    Fox News also reported that upon returning to the CIA annex, those same ex-SEALs had “lasered” a mortar targeting their position in hopes that an AC-130 would arrive to take it out, but again no help came. That same mortar later killed two of those ex-SEALs.
    But as predicted here, none of that turned out to be true. None. From beginning to end, and in all its details, that story has proved to be false.

    continued...........

    This gets real interesting.. As in why would they be "painting mortars" with lazers when no mortars were fired until 4 AM?

    A meme....

    The fact is that the MSM refuses to report on the issue. And now the attacks on Fox begins. Journalism in the US is dead.

    Uh, Shaarona, you might want to check out the latest from CBS on this topic. Seems they deliberately hid something pretty significant here.

    Why did obama go in front of the UN two weeks after the attack and say that it was retaliation for an obscure video?

    Was he lying or was he kept out of the loop.

    Either one severely disqualifies him to hold that office.

    Post a link.. I would love to read it.

    I am wondering how they lazered the mortar positions since they didn't know there were any mortars until the 11 minute barrage that began around 4 AM.

    I didn't say that they didn't report on the attack. Try to keep up.

    This was a covert op in Benghazi.. because Libya is bleeding weapons all over Africa. .. and we are doing interventions, trainings, and covert ops all over the region to throttle Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, LRA and others.

    Typically leaders cannot afford to get hysterical.. they have to deal with facts and face them.. but if you enjoy hysteria, there's no harm in that.
