It is just really a sad sign that we live in a place where the media has the power and the desire to cover up lies, or at least not tell us the truth or the whole story. It is insulting to all of us. It is also sad that most voters could care less and just trust the media and this administration. And that they want to silence us- that should scare all Americans. There is no honesty. They all just cover for each other, and I think every single member of the media cannot be trusted. I read 1984 with my students and even they see parallels to today! Will we be there by 2050 like Orwell predicted?

Sam:

Your statement...."The reason they won't release the photos: because there are none!!" is provocative since, "there are none" that would vindicate BO's apathy, negligence, indifference, and disrespect for the lives of four (4) American hero's whose pleas for help were totally ignored for days/weeks.

Nearly three months after the lethal terrorist attack on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, the Obama Adminstration continues to pay lip service to transparency, but refuses to deliver. CBS News has requested a number of photos and documents that might provide a better idea of what, exactly, happened at the White House on September 11, 2012, but the administration won't cooperate.

CBS News first requested the images on Oct. 31. In the past, the White House has released photos showing US officials during national security incidents. A half dozen images related to the mission that captured and...
