Pretty big coincidence also that Patraeus went to Libya and conducted his own investigation into the attack and then all of a sudden gets outed on his affair. I suspect he would have some very damaging testimony and funny how they held all this secret until after the election also. Gotta hand it to O and the clown posse, they are astute liars and deniers for sure huh...
There was definitely a deal being hammered out between them.
Now POTUS hold an even bigger trump card over him rather than merely ruining his life, Patraeus will get criminally prosecuted for "breaches of security" if he squeals and nothing will happen to him if he doesn't.
While this could be the reason for the Benghazi attacks, it is still just speculation. I also found it interesting how the article cited in the OP stated "insurgents entered the facility on September 11 and executed Ambassador Chris Stevens." From what I have read, Amb. Stevens died from smoke inhalation, there were no physical injuries to his body, and when he was taken from the consulate by friendlies to the hospital, he was still alive. It wasn't until he arrived at the hospital and underwent CPR for 90 minutes was he pronounced dead.

Pat Eason, the voice of reason...
While all that may be true - its not the story.
The other agents killed there - were actually CIA operatives, not just "guards" looking after the Embassy
According to Broadwell Petraeus found out that when the attack started a call went out from the embassy to the guys in Delta Force who were standing by- but never responded - why?
She also says that the CIA annex in the same compound was holding Libyan militia prisoners and that the attack was really an attempt to get their prisoners freed.
This is all a unbelievably far cry from being caused by "a VIDEO." Which in light of all this information is nothing more than a lie to the public.
Why didn't delta force respond?
From what I read, there was a quick response from the CIA annex a few blocks away. They secured the perimeter, reppeled the attack, and then searched for Stevens but never found him. They returned with the other survivors and 1 Dead to the annex. If the response quelled the violence, why would you send in DF? Also, maybe after hearing they couldn't find Stevens, Obama decided it wasn't worth risking DF in another possible Mogadishu like scenario. The fact is, we don't have the whole story, and people are overreacting when any new little tidbit of information comes out.
If he was found alive and breathing, he wouldn't need CPR for 90 min. If he needed CPR, he was already dead.
There was no crowd of protesters, you need a better source for your info.
The attack wasn't over the movie, your article states a party line and as such nothing stated in it can be taken as truth. Other than the fact that there was an attack and people died as a result.
A quick response? The attack lasted hours, what is your definition of quick? And the CIA response was ordered to stand down. They did eventually go anyway and rescued some, but since they had not accounted for Stevens, DF should have been sent in to find the American Ambassador. And they should have been sent at the start of the incident.
Now if they were holding prisoners at the counsulate, do you really think they would have only had 2 armed military members there to protect the consulate? If they were and that is all they had, then yes someone was grossly incompetant or had another agenda. And why would the CIA hold prisoners at the counselate when they had their own compound? And obviously they had enough force to repell an attack at their compound.
Quit reading the zero press releases and start checking some of your facts before you blindly follow.
So many projects, so little time
Thing is no one would be reacting at all if the administration didn't try to bury all this with a fairly tale a third grader wouldn't buy.
With each new bit of info the story is more and more concerning as to how it was handled.
Wouldn't you agree that this case is much deeper than Islamic anger over a video?
I understand omitting certain facts but I despise being spoken to like I am a child by any administration.
