Bretibart Headline: “Benghazi-Gate: U.S. Security Remained Lax Even As Threats Chased Westerners Out”
A quick observation before I share two news stories with you. Today, there are headlines that the Obama Campaign and Obama Administration have differing stories on the Embassy attacks. Is anyone else bothered by the fact we are talking about two entities here? Obama is the President. He is not a candidate running for office. He is the incumbent. His administrations position is official US policy. How in the world is his campaign allowed a ‘different’ narrative. Will the press finally be shamed into doing their jobs? No wonder the republicans are taking the liar, liar pants of fire strategy into the debates.
Two links for you here. First is a video timeline of the terror attacks. Bret Briar is one of the few reporters currently doing his job. You will need to follow the link for the video – please do it’s a great piece of work
The second is more investigative work from the Washington Post of all places. Breitbart picks up the piece and adds perspective in the attached article:

The International Committee of the Red Cross suspended operations and evacuated staff in the east after an attack June 12 on its compound in the port city of Misrata. In Benghazi, convoys transporting the U.N. country chief and the British ambassador were attacked in April and June, respectively. The British government shut down its consulate soon afterward.
The U.S. outpost had a close call of its own June 6, when a small roadside bomb detonated outside the walls, causing no injuries or significant damage. But the Americans stayed put.
The Red Cross left, the British were attacked and left; we were attacked and we not only didn’t leave, apparently we didn’t even increase our security:
