Candy Crowley Self-Destructs

Has anyone ever asked where the story about this terrorist attack being about a you tube video posted apparently in June came from? I mean this was not even being talked about for at least three months and then suddenly the Arab world is incensed enough to attack and kill an Ambassador. Did the Libyan PM call the White House or CNN and tell them that the video was the cause of the attack? Why isn't anybody asking the right questions? Or don't we really want to know?

To Illeiner: exactly. I think it was commissioned. And not by the man in jail now for his parole violations/offensive video.

The video trailer was released in June, but it was only translated into Arabic in late August/early September.

Do you mean that they had to wait until it was translated into Arabic before they figured out it was insulting to the Prophet? I find that a little hard to believe. The question still remains, who connected the attack where it was reported that there were no demonstrations going on to the video? Who called from Libya?

Just how badly did CNN's Candy Crowley destroy her first (and hopefully last) attempt as a presidential debate moderator? More than 65 million people saw that she is to debate moderation as CNN is to "news."

Barack Obama made a fatal mistake when he lied, claiming he'd labeled the Libya attack as an act of terrorism. The look on Romney's face said it all: Mr. President, here comes checkmate.

Then Crowley leapt to Obama's defense, declared a lie a truth, changed the subject, and Obama was free.

It was a travesty.

Let's get beyond the perennial partisan toe-taggers Rachel Maddow...
