President Obama lied about Benghazi

Again, today, I looked for a headline in the News-Sentinel saying "Obama lied for more than two weeks." I can't believe that our president can ignore and lie about the terrorist attack on Benghazi, Libya, and you and many other "newspapers" wouldn't print the story.

It's been proved by phone calls and emails that help was requested as the embassy was being bombed and overrun by Islamic terrorists! The four American heroes fought to their death as Obama and Hillary did nothing to help them! They watched the attack on video sent them by drones.

The attack happened on 9/11 and still our president has not held a press conference explaining the reason for not sending help to our ambassador. Air Force planes from Italy could've been there in two hours, as well as Marines as the seven-hour attack continued.

After a short message on Sept. 12, Obama jetted off to Las Vegas. He continued for over two weeks to tell the American public that the attack was because of a film in Egypt about Mohammed, and was fast to apologize to the Muslims for the film.

Obama convinced Hillary to take responsibility for the lack of protection and orders for the Navy SEALs to "stand down" the three (yes three) times they asked for help. Knowing 9/11 is an unsafe time for our country, protection was withdrawn as other countries packed up and left the area. Obama is the president, the Commander-in-Chief — not Hillary!

I am angry that these lies and cover-ups continue in our government. I am angry that the media think they owe it to Obama to protect him. I am appalled that you chose to totally ignore this horrifying news.

The families of the ambassador and the other three who died blame their deaths on our incompetent president who watched "live" from the situation room as the embassy burned. The father of Tyron Woods (one of the SEALs who disobeyed orders to stand down and went anyway to help Ambassador Stevens) said, "I forgive those who caused my son's death. I just hope that in the future our government can act with the honor and moral courage that my son had."

I do too!

    Carolyn Hadden: Good letter. I wish more people could understand the significance of this crime against the United States of America.

    At first I too thought Romney missed an opportunity to showcase the Benghazi tradegy and paint Obama into a corner.
    Now it seems this was a strategic decision--- to avoid the appearance of politicizing it--- and "going negative". I think his team directed him to stay on message and let the press and the facts do the job. No matter if it was Romney's idea or his handlers idea, not to jump on the Benghazi topic, it worked out for him.

    This is treason on an unprecedented scale.
    Arguably, Obama should go to prison for this one.
    A host of people participated in the lie.
    Besides that, I'm astonished that Mitt Romney pretended that it was just a case of not guarding an embassy. In the debates, Romney could have blown the whistle and he would have instantlly become president. But no. If Romney had knowledge, he participated in the lie, also.

    In further response, since LNS does not have an international journalist stationed in Benghazi, I don't think they can provide a firsthand news report. They can only select stories out of the news wire.

    In response to the letter, and its complaint that LNS has not published this event.

    This is because LNS subscribes to syndicated news streams such as Associated Press, etc.

    These news sources are not going to publish this scandal unless they have to.

    Since this story is now going viral, the major syndicated news media will be forced to portray themselves as competent news organizations, and they will release statements to create the illusion of competence and of being a news agency.

    Looks like the attack was a "hit" to destroy US distribution of weapons to Islam.
    I wonder if this is a demonstration and a message from a higher authority which surpasses the US its State Department.

    Robert, I agree that this is a very important story, and it is now being phrased "BenghaziGate."

    Looks like the "mission" was not a mission, and the "Ambassador" was not an ambassador, but it was an outlet or command center for supplying arms to Islamic factions who are on a Jihad. Possibly these weapons could be used against us.
    Looks like the 4 people were surrendered to the attackers in order to minimize further embarrassment.
    Hillary asked for military fortification of the premises, and her request was denied.
    Hillary has asked for the availability of official SOS legal counsel for her defense, and her request was denied.
    Hillary's husband Bill recommend that she resign from the position of SOS to minimize the possibilities of criminal litigation against her.

    Obama downplayed this disaster so it wouldn't be an issue that would jeopardize his election hopes. Ooops, he didn't count on people who know the truth to reveal the truth. Four AMERICANS murdered and Obama is culpable. Another four years? God, I hope not.

    Mum is the word.

    Good link below.

    There's more to this story than what the State department is letting out.

    Perhaps the reason nothing has been printed is because the Benghazi incident is still being investigated and all of the wild speculation that Ms. Hadden has written in her letter comes from Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, and FOX News.

    None of it has been proved to be true as of yet except for the requests to the State Dept. weeks earlier for more security at the consulate that seem to have been denied by a State Dept. official.

    Personally, I think the Lodi News sentinel would be in a difficult position to print a was suggested in this article. After all, nationally renown journalists and news organizations have failed to confront the president in any serious way like they did George Bush.

    How can anyone forget the daily confrontations, animosity, anger and determination to get Bush at every turn. Yet, four American deaths as a direct result of Obama's policies and lack of concern for America's safety abroad hardly raises an eye brow in our liberal left wing media. If Lodi News Sentinel printed a front page story articulating truth as outlined in this letter, imagine the false accusations of right wing bigotry and hate that would come their way.
