    Good for Fox.

    Bad on Facebook.


  2. Curtis Says:

    At the above link is an embed with Sean Hanity and features a statement/interview by the father (Charles Woods) of the slain Seal, Tyrone Woods.

  3. James Says:

    In the time of decision he was a coward, in explanation he is a coward, in responsibility he is a coward and he must fear the coming of sleep for awakening he will be a coward.

  5. Mike K Says:

    Obama does not care. If he loses the election and believes that this affected that, he might care. But he does not care about those men.

  6. Richard Says:

    In an unrelated matter involving facebook, I wrote to my friends there that I was done with facebook after my thumbnails had been defaced. This is clearly a bigger issue than mine, although my issue points in that direction. I never bought into the Hope and Change, and by May 29, 2009 I knew he would be defeated if he ran for reelection. Why? In terms of the Hans Christian Andersen story, it wasn’t that the Emperor had no clothes, it was that the clothes had no Emperor.

  7. Curtis Says:

    It’s clear now that our worst suspicions are true. We have been manipulated again, from the beginning. The venerable Sowell explains in a phrase: cooling out the voters.


  8. Guy D. Mousepants Says:

    Obama always resorts to the most ambiguous phrasing: “Number one priority – Making sure that people were safe” so he might not be referring to the people at the Benghazi consulate.
    Someone should ask him a specific question about what he did to help the men who died there.

  9. Blacque Jacques Shellacque Says:

    “We are intent on figuring out who did this and bringing the perpetrators to justice…”

    Every time I hear this I want to scream. Incidents like Benghazi are NOT law enforcement issues. If “justice” is to be administered, then find out who did it, and either rain down Gatling gun fire on them or steer a Tomahawk missile right through the main entrance of wherever they are at to ensure that the price is paid. After all, they do understand the concept of revenge.

    But for the love of God, I wish these people would stop talking about bringing anyone to justice regarding the Benghazi attacks. What would they do, try the attackers in a civilian court if they were caught?


  10. A Reader Says:

    This is getting pretty frightening. First, Fox is doubling down but good. And the Obama Administration is not responding forcefully at all.

    Fox news has leveled some of the most lethal charges that have ever been leveled at a sitting president and they have done it at the last days of a presidential campaign.

    If Fox News has gotten the story wrong in a meaningful way, you’d think there would be a ferocious response. Somebody in the Administration would be spitting nails and breathing fire. Instead they are ducking interview requests and when Obama is challenged, his response is evasive.

    And the media, aside from Fox News and The Christian Science Monitor is not covering the story.

  11. RebeccaH Says:

    Shame! Shame on Barack Obama and on his entire administration!

  12. parker Says:

    “I wish these people would stop talking about bringing anyone to justice regarding the Benghazi attacks.”

    In the words of rickl, in this particular case, I want them DEAD.

    “Instead they are ducking interview requests and when Obama is challenged, his response is evasive.”

    The mannish boy is a deer in the headlights whenever his incompetency is revealed. 4 dead in Benghazi will haunt his days now and forever.


    4 dead and this time jihadi are coming for Western Civilization and BHO stands down or perhaps conspires. I want the transcripts and I want them now.

  13. crosspatch Says:

    If you have a reaction force that includes Delta operators and it “takes some planning” to get them deployed, then it isn’t a reaction force. It was 9/11. Those forces should have been on full alert ready to respond at a moment’s notice. They admit gross incompetence while at the same time stalling any investigation.

    Absolutely sickening to think that OUR United States of America would respond this way.

  14. Occam's Beard Says:

    In the words of rickl, in this particular case, I want them DEAD.

    As far as overseas malefactors, my motto is “when in doubt, whack ‘em out.”

  15. Wry Mouth Says:


    a nice denouement, perhaps.

    still agape (yes, exactly) that such could happen on a president’s watch, and the Free Press would look the other way.

    still sickened.

  16. parker Says:

    “Absolutely sickening to think that OUR United States of America would respond this way.”

    It wasn’t our United States of America. It was something like this: http://tinyurl.com/9vcd2td and Obama is the evil android watching it happen and calculating it’s next step.

  17. Curtis Says:


    Good stuff above. Destroys Panetta’s sorry ass story and assertion that lack of intel prevented a response and further that this is military policy. The opposite is true as is explained in the above podcast by the phrase “go to the sound of the guns.”

  18. htom Says:

    … Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.
    This much we pledge—and more. …

    Weeping in his grave. How we have fallen.

  19. parker Says:

    And yet again, VDH sums it all up:


    This will not go away, Barry carries 4 dead in Benghazi to the grave. All October I hear the drumming, 4 dead in Benghazi. 4 dead. 4 dead. 4 dead. 4 dead in Benghazi.

  20. parker Says:

    Above, it’s next step should have been its’ next step… either way we have aliens in our midst. Watch those trick or treaters carefully tomorrow. ;-)

  22. Armchair pessimist Says:

    Caught a stray story somewhere that General Ham, the guy who told Washington to screw off and got relieved of command in real-time 30 seconds, has left the Army altogether. Anybody have more on this?

  23. Ron Says:

    Ben Ghazi says . . .

    This must be VERY reassuring to Israel. If we don’t, can’t, won’t protect our people . . .

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
