This appears to be Breaking News: CIA Dir. Petraeus Responds Re: Benghazi

Original post made by Anyone But Obama on Oct 26, 2012

Here is CIA Director Petraeus's statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. "

Web Link

It should now be clear...Obama not only knew, but it would have been his decision not to rescue anyone there.

This pathetic excuse of a President and Commander-in-Chief has to be defeated if America is to survive.

We need to demand answers about what Obama was doing when he found out, and what precisely happened. He knows (but would rather campaign in Vegas and engage in juvenile rants about binders, horses, bayonets, etc) when the mid-east in is flames, not to mention our economy.

And where is the outcry and coverage in the main stream media? This obvious coverup and ineptitude by obamas administration should be their undoing, but the willing idiots that support him will ignore the illegal and immoral actions that killed our ambassador and 3 others in Libya. What has become of our country.....

Let's all vote for the bold faced liar, Romney. It will be like the good old days of GW Bush. How I long for unnecessary wars with the killing and maiming of our young soldiers, the futile hunt for Osama Bin Laden and the abuses at Abu Graib and Guantanamo. I'm sure the families of the hundreds of thousands of innocent Iraqi civilians killed in the war would agree. In fact, I hear Iraq is planning on changing the name of Bagdad to Bushdad to honor the liberator. And Falluja will become Cheneygrad. Those were the good old days. Running up the deficit with tax cuts and war spending all the while blaming the other party and espousing a balanced budget. Good times, good times. Oh, and how could I ever forget the stock market crash of September/October 2008 that wiped out my retirement savings and cut the value of my home in half! What fun we had when our line of credit was pulled by the bank. Those were the days. And who would ever forget the $700 Billion TARP bailout of the banks? It was fun seeing the free market capitalist Republicans beg for money from the government. And what a hoot it was to find out that the government was wiretapping Americans without a warrant. There was just so much fun and frivolity going on, we just forgot about the 4th amendment to the constitution. It was such fun and hilarity that John Ashcroft almost left his hospital bed to go back to the White House and join in the fun and listen in on a few steamy phone calls. Yes, it's the liar Republicans we want to vote for because they will tell you whatever you want to hear and do whatever they damn well please - and that is the American way!

Wow. What an incisive analysis! What? Maybe 70 words long? And written by Bill Kristol, the guy who couldn't cut it at the NYTimes because he's such an unmitigated hack. This rates right up there with Palin's 'schuck and jive' and Sununu's claim that Obama is the laziest president in US history. You Republicans really have a lot of class!!

Just remember, Obama will have the same color skin when he is defeated, as he was when he was elected.

Many who voted for BO in 2008, will not be voting for him in 2012, and it's got nothing to do with the color of his skin.

Anybody but Romney.

Hard to believe you believe a guy who flipped his positions more times in a week than anybody I have seen in 4 decades.

And, I blame the Republican controlled House for our economy's slow recovery.

amend, Anybody but Romney.

Some people hate President Obama so much that they are blind. They would rather vote for the most well-documented liar, Mitt Romney, than give the President any credit.

Four years of BO lying and stats to prove his ineptitude and you still are going to vote for someone who is trying to destroy America? What are you smoking? Let's start with the recent Benghazi issue, then look at his constant manipulating the media to cover stats (ie. lower unemployment:FYI, Ca. did not (somehow) get its stats in on time...Hmmm, wonder how that happened?). So many examples, so little time.
Remember, in Socialism (which BO is promoting), just remember, SOMEONE HAS TO PULL THE WAGON!! Tell me, who will that be?

okay, marcia. why don't you run for office? You could run on the anti-socialist ticket.

You'll see those who are pulling the cart, as they have throughout our history, voting resoundingly Democratic in this presidential 'contest'. Reuters has announced Obama wins in a landslide.

Hey Megan,
Wise up.
Do you know what "pulling the cart" requires?
It means those in the private sector must pay for more and more government services and govt employees.

Given that Obama is (deliberately) destroying the private sector, industry-by-industry, those of us who are left in the private sector will find it impossible to pull anymore ... if this Marxist is re-elected.

My motivation to achieve has been reduced significantly by this president, and it will absolutely die if he is re-elected. I'll be done...as will America.

Your motivation to achieve has been reduced significantly.... Wow, you must be a pretty impressionable fellow. Just don't ask for a handout while you're sitting on the curb watching hard-working immigrants drive by you in their bmw's. Also, find one name and stick by it. I'm tired of responding to the same old racist curmudgeonly troll who populates the PW Forum as if his very identity depended upon it. Go do volunteer work for the Red Cross or something. Or do you hate them and the people they help too?

Meger, 'just don't ask for a handout?' That's what you leftists are all about...handouts funded by working Americans. And, if you tired of responding, just say no. Go do volunteer work for planned parenthood or maybe an organization that is interested in saving lives.

I have been a Red Cross volunteer all of my adult life. This morning, the Princeton Electoral Consortium, which puts over a quadrillion variables into its computer model, says there is a 98% percent certainty that Obama wins the election. Sorry Mittens, but you're in for another unhappy four years at the prospect of Americans moving toward greater peace and prosperity.
