If that was their best guess at that time, it REALLY brings into question their competence. How stupid do you have to be to believe that people protesting a stupid YouTube video show up at the protest with machine guns, rocket propelled grenades and fully crewed mortars? A few AK-47s might be expected in those 3rd world cesspools but belt fed crewed served weapons, RPGs, and crewed mortars require at least some prior planning and only an absolute idiot would think or state otherwise. Rice is either too incompetent to be able to discern that, or too dishonest as to refuse to lie to the American people. Either way, she's not fit for the job she holds and certainly NOT that of Secretary of State.

Why is it with liberals that seemingly intelligent people lose their ability to think logically when the truth dosent quit fit their preconceived notions.

It's plausible if you consider the circumstances at the time. At that time many countries in the Arab world were protesting the video. And the people in Libya were well armed because they had been fighting Gaddafi. Remember Rice did not conduct the investigation she was relaying what she was told. I had also heard she was given those talking points by the intel community so too much info would not be given to the attackers, who were being investigated. Never the less it is not good policy to go after your own people after a incident like this. At least not publicly. It was a desperate move by a desperate party. Politicizing US deaths is gutter low. Especially from all those Republicans who gave us bad info on the Iraq war. It's insulting.

On Friday, Hugh Hewitt asked CNN anchor Candy Crowley about her infamous fact-check heard 'round the world during the "town hall style" presidential debate at Hofstra University.  Her general self-assessment?  The journalistic equivalent of a solid B-plus:

HH: I have to begin by asking you about the debate, obviously, since it’s the first time I’ve talked to you since then. Looking back at not just your role but the media generally, are you happy with how it turned out? Is it pride, misgivings or both?
