Got stuff to do today, but I'll be posting over the weekend, so check back in, you know, or not.
In the meantime, here's a wingnut-bunker-buster bomb which might provoke a bit of discussion....
A CIA security team rushed to the U.S. consulate in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi less than 25 minutes after receiving the first call that the mission was under attack, while a second squad was dispatched by air from the capital, Tripoli, according to a timeline released on Thursday by U.S. intelligence officials.
The timeline is the most detailed accounting to date of the U.S. response to the attack on the consulate and was released to rebut news reports that U.S. officials had delayed a rescue.
“The officials on the ground in Benghazi responded to the situation . . . as quickly and as effectively as possible,” said a senior intelligence official, speaking on condition of anonymity. “There were no orders to anybody to stand down in providing support.”
To those who simply detest Barack Obama, releasing a timeline of Sept. 11th events in Benghazi and reassuring Americans that no "stand down" orders were ever issued in the incident.....Will. Not. Matter. One. Whit.
Why not? Because facts and evidence and data no longer matter within the Tea Party & Associates conservative/GOP movement. Folks from that persuasion don't care what the facts or evidence demonstrate. These fanatics believe in lies.....because they want to believe in lies. Lies help justify their hatred of Barack Obama. And so, lies are clung to like life preservers in a boat capsizing.
Excitable conservatives joined Mr. Romney as he shamelessly exploited the death of 4 Americans in Benghazi on 9-11-12. Media pimps and whores rushed in to pump up the winger excitement....each member sanctimoniously wondering along with the excitables...what did President Obama do wrong and what is he covering up or lying about?
Darrell Dum-Dum Issa jumped in with hearings of political exploitation.....the faux-controversy made an appearance at the debates.....Candy Crowley dared to commit an act of journalism over what Obama said about Benghazi....and then, if you can believe it.....the excitables got louder and wackier. The latest that I heard from the Foxian Insurgency, President Obama wanted the attack to happen and ordered security personnel to stand down.
Let me say without nuance....Republican and conservative exploitation of the 4 dead Americans from Sept. 11 in Libya, for what they hoped would be political gain for their presidential candidate....was/is one of the most disgusting displays of shamelessness I've ever seen. Made entirely of whole winger cloth.....without a thread of empirical evidence holding the conspiracy ravings together.....the excitables set a new low in their reactionary-hatred of President Obama.
