Here's my question........... The meeting at the WH was pre-scheduled. Why? Why a late meeting? Did Obama know this was going to happen? Did they fear the mission was compromised and decide to turn al Qaeda loose on the Ambassador? This would explain why Obama did not respond when asked for protection. This would explain the ready made explanation of the video being the reason. This would explain why a late evening meeting was scheduled. Think about it!!!
I'm sure you know the answers to those questions but let me help others to understand. Stevens was there to support and fund and provide arms to al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations to overthrow Assad in Syria. He was unprotected because a large security detail would have drawn attention to what was really happening. Can't be covert and also visible. The warehouses stored arms and supplies for al Qaeda to use. Yes Stevens was supplying arms. Obama saw things unraveling and knew that a major response would just shed light on the convert mission so he decided to eliminate the evidence (or allow the attackers to eliminate it for him) No witnesses and no one with details of what was happening.
Good article but it also misses the important part. THIS WAS NOT A CONSULATE. This was a meeting place for the ambassador to work WITH al Qaeda and provide material support (money and arms) to be used in Libya to overthrow Assad. This is a treasonous act!!!!! How can our government arm the enemy of the US? This is the reason there was no real security detail. Enough troops to adequately secure the MISSION (not consulate) would have drawn attention to the facility. This was a covert operation to arm our enemies in hopes that they would take out Assad. Wake up people!!!!!!!!

You are correct. AND the fact that deficits always hurt everyone is never talked about. The lib's think deficits don't matter.. I submit that money that is borrowed and money that is printed have exactly the same effect on the economy and everyones personal wealth. IT IS ALL INFLATION. More dollars in the economy makes each dollar worth less (and eventually worthless). Why aren't economists pointing this out?

True. I like the way they all start covering their @sses. Bernanke said that if the cliff wasn't avoided the economy could suffer. This is just a setup to blame those who are conservative enough to WANT the cuts. When they DO settle (and of course they will) they have a card up their sleeve. If the economy tanks, they will blame the conservatives for not agreeing to more taxes. Bunch of worthless liars who need to be tarred and feathered (yes, they used to do that).

Don't you like how these ads always say "my roomate's mother-in-law" or my cousin's best friend or such? They never say "I am making tons of cash". It is always someone else that they heard about. And yes, it probably is porn LOL

You are correct. Of course the EPA is planning to "regulate" lead used in ammo too. Then there is the legislation that will require each bullet sold to have a laser etched serial number on the back end of the slug. This will cost much more and further deter law abiding citizens from buying more. This does nothing to deter criminals who steal their ammo. Our only hope is that there are enough reasonable Constitution loving Senators to refuse ratification of the UN treaty. We should never allow the UN to regulate anything in the US........we have a Constitution to protect us from that sort of stuff. But the Constitution is only powerful if we USE it and embrace it.

Face it........the media is the reason we ended up with Mitt Romney as a candidate. They kept him in the spotlight while ignoring others like Santorum and Ron Paul. Obama wanted to run against Mitt all along so they help push him into the lead. Then they also helped convince the ignorant to vote against him in the general election. We need fresh principled voices who will not back down.

Stop pushing moderate candidates on us. We want a conservative who has principles. Someone who has the ability to avoid landmines like abortion, gay marriage, drug legalization, etc. No more RINO's
