As the attack in Benghazi was unfolding a few hours later, Mr. Abu Khattala told fellow Islamist fighters and others that the assault was retaliation for the same insulting video, according to people who heard him.
In an interview a few days later, he pointedly declined to say whether an offensive online video might indeed warrant the destruction of the diplomatic mission or the killing of the ambassador. “From a religious point of view, it is hard to say whether it is good or bad,” he said.

It appears Obama pulled the trigger on executing the capture of Right Wing Hero Ben Ghazi.Horrible news for those looking to clean up the White House. Appears Ben Ghazi isn't playing nicely to the right wing narrative:Mr. Abu Khattala, 41,... contended that the attack had grown out of a peaceful protest against a video made in the United States that mocked the Prophet Muhammad and Islam.

Don't do it to us Ben! Be who we thought you were. So....what do you all think about that IRS one? Yeah, that's the ticket. Start talking about that IRS one. They still slo-rollin' it?

Americans apparently believe that he and his fellow travelers (my words) are LESS COMPETENT than the post Katrina Bush Administration. "The poll is a DISASTER for the President" Todd said. "You look at the presidency here: Lowest job rating, tied for the lowest, lowest on foreign policy. His administration is seen as less competent than the Bush Administration, post Katrina.""On the issue of do you believe he can still lead? A majority believe no. Essentially the public is saying your presidency is OVER" Todd added.So go ahead and make your sophomoric jokes. Keep believing the Benghazi "video fantasy" that has been discredited YEARS ago. YOU are irrelevant, even in here, and your president is perceived as a BIGGER LOSER than George W. Bush. How does that make you feel?

It is utterly amazing.I want to know when we hit the tipping point that refusing to vote for stealing literally trillions of dollars from yet to be born generations of Americans became "extreme", and voting for stealing trillions of dollars from yet to be born Americans became "moderate" and "mainstream". When did this happen?

Repubs will keep the House this year - probably add seats to boot. The barometer of how pissed the people are at The Party though will be the Senate. If the GOP takes the Senate, it will have overcome a 6 seat deficit in a single election to change control of parties - a huge and not so common event. It's looking even more as though even the Dems are conceding the landslide.Hillary in 2016? It's looking more and more that it will not be the case. She's so weak and so damaged in so many ways - conservatives have of course known this for years, but the mainstreamers are finally catching up and realizing what a fraud she is. It's kind of sad how this has been failure of a politician and statewoman has been reduced to hocking her book at CostCo and can't gather enough interest to keep the book in the top 10 for more than one week. She's politically dead.And, yes, we agree. Obama's successor will be better. If Carter ran again and won, the statement would be true.I'm looking for Castro to be fast-tracked to candidacy - maybe even as early as 2016. When Martin O'Malley is your most appealing candidate at this point, your party's got serious problems.
