    Definite cover up. The administration knew in "real time" that this was a planned attack. This is an incompetent administration and a dangerous administration. Time for Obama to go

    They talk about it like it never happened before.It most certainly did in Reagans presidency in '83, 2 embassies and over 70 killed in Kuwait,Lebanon.Reagan didn't get any admonishment because he was the republicans darling ,the senile old actor was,his wife ran the government in his second term he was that bad with dementia,alzheimers you know it!!But excuse me its different with Democrates,the typical double standard,not what I say,just what I do with you hypocrites isn't it!!Issa going after Hillary when its his own committee that cut 400 million off the defense budget,the budget that includes embassy security but take responsibility for their screwups will he!!Or going after Eric Holder for Fast Furious with millions spent on a political witch hunt that came up empty,it should come out of republicans butts because they never went after Bush with his wars created with lives that's cost us thousands in innocent military deaths as well as Iraq civilians.Now the blood is on the republicans hands isn't it,can you say idiots in congress,I can and they'll be out in November if my vote counts I assure yah!!

    More issues have been reported with drugs from a Massachusetts compounding pharmacy linked to a deadly multistate outbreak of fungal meningitis, federal officials said Monday.
    Fifteen people have died from the non-contagious meningitis associated with injections of a contaminated steroid produced by the New England Compounding Center.

    I blame Mitt Romney , he was governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts , he let big Pharma get away with murder !

    I believe a tragic event that more than likely could not have been foreseen ocuured and all the critique is being wise after the event with information not originally available. To use this as a political attack on the president is a disgrace as the general said, because it seems now to be a confimed Al Qaeda plan and we know how good ( 9/11) they are at keeping those secret. For me the most telling report that this was not forseen or additional secuity demanded is the way Stevens behaved days before the attack travelling alone ( bullet proof car) to meet without any security guards..... he clearly did not feel in any clear and present danger.
    Terrorist acts are appalling and unfortunately some succeed. Trying to make any kind of political capital out of it as the Republicans are is disgraceful and dishonors 4 good Americans who were doing thier nations work.

    Romney is clueless on foreign policy and thinks all answers are war – war on Iran, Libya, Syria and even destruction of all the progress we have made with Russia. He does not understand diplomacy as he proved in alienating our closest ally while just attending the Olympics in England. He knows NOTHING about what happened in Libya and to keep saying it was a conspiracy cover-up with NO intelligence data is irresponsible and disgusting to make political this attack on our consulate. Can Romney be honest about anything?

    It's not NCIS - where everything is solved in one hour. In a country as volatile as Libya right now, it's gonna take time. There are still Moms out here asking ANYONE (Bush specifcally) why their sons had to die in Iraq. 9 YEARS LATER.

    Obama/Biden 2012 - because he WILL get the people that did this. He can't just kill everyone in the country hoping to find a few. Grow up.
