Bob Schieffer still has questions about Benghazi

Sorry Oliver Willis. It looks like Face the Nation host Bob Schieffer isn’t done asking questions about Benghazi.  (“WH McDonough” is White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough.)

It seems that someone in the Obama Administration made a decision to remove references to al Qaeda from Benghazi talking points. Who made that decision and why? As long as the White House refuses to release all Benghazi-related emails, these questions and others aren’t going to go away.

    Sharyl Attkisson is AMAZING. I have a feeling if she was in charge at CBS News, you would see a marked difference between it and the other two network newscasts.

      or Mark Knoller, got to at least hand it to CBS for hiring those two.

    How long can the Obama administration get away with this? They must be held accountable. All of them.

      4 years and counting.

      No, Lady Macbeth said, “And who is to hold our power to account?”

      • Lady 12

        Obama is not Macbeth, and he does not have Macbeth’s courage or Lady Macbeth’s willpower. He’s just a spoiled brat. Someday, someone has got to hold his feet to the fire.

        • rennyangel2

          Well, if the Washington Post was still in the 70s, maybe them,. But, otherwise, I see no one stepping up for the privilege.

          lol sure he doesn’t – keep talking you help the Republicans lose, consistently :)

            sez You! that means alot!

      Or let’s investigate why the Bush administration failed to act on all of the pre-911 warnings and who we should make accountable for 3000+ deaths on American soil during peace time. Then we can talk about how 4 US Citizens were killed in a foreign country that is an enemy of the USA by a blood thirsty mod during wartime. You teabaggers are so pathetic, you really are. It’s why you are always on the losing side.

        Either you were born after 9/11/01 or you are too ignorant
        of history to know that the entire attack was planned years in advance during
        the Clinton presidency. Let me help you out:

        The first WTC bombing in 1993. Six people killed and over
        1,000 injured. Bill Clinton was president.

        Bombing of the USS Cole in 1996. Bill Clinton was president.

        Bombing of US Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania by Al Qaida in
        1998. Bill Clinton was president.

        Nineteen Saudi hijackers sent by Osama bin Laden to the US
        in the late 1990’s. Bill Clinton was president.

        Final planning and funding for the 9/11 attack. Bill Clinton
        was president.

        Jan. 2001. President Bush started his first term in office.

        Sept. 11, 2001. Hijackers destroy the WTC towers and part of
        the Pentagon.

        So the next time you go blaming Bush for 9/11, present the
        rest of the history or you will look like a total fool.

        wasn’t a “mob” was a planned attack. did the date of the attack not clue you in to that, greaseball? oh and “teabaggers”. you are really cutting edge with those type of fresh and original names. get some new material.

      • OneThinDime

        Need to start with Clinton and the 1993 World Trade Center attack that occurred by he was doing the Monica

      • lainer51

        so I guess 4 deaths are meaningless because you have a made up theory in that little bitty brain; no worries, you are talking to the hand.

      • David

        Is that you Monty Python? Bush is not the president so stop beating that horse.
        Get a clue about OBlamer and his lies.

        By the way, I want a full investigation into the Teapot Dome scandals. Oops past history.

      • Lady 12

        Bush never blamed 911 on a video. Get a brain, you pathetic clown.

      Who was held accountable for the original 9-11 when thousands died?

  • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

    bob schieffer must be a raaaaaaccccciisssttt!

    Another question to ask; where are the people that were gotten out of the Consulate? By the obvious silence we are to assume that they just disappeared from the face of the earth. Perhaps they did.

    • Cool_Arrow

      Justice Jeanine is asking her viewers to help her find them.
      But I’m more amazed that Chris Stevens’ dad doesn’t seem to care why his son died.

      • http://twitter.com/TheAngieNC2 Angie (D)

        That’s how sick the Obama kool aid makes you — you put helping Obama over your own child. Disgusting.

      • OneThinDime

        Follow the money. Was Stevens’ paid millions of our tax $$$ to let it go????

    • kbash33

      And why won’t the FBI release transcripts of their interviews with these people to Congress?

  • richard

    It’s nice to see CBS-Pravda asking questions about Benghazi but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for anything to come of it.

  • http://extremesplash.wordpress.com/ Ben Bollman

    It’s nice to see even a sliver of the journalistic integrity the Big Three used to have even if it is short lived.

  • Scott Carroll

    Great job Bob! You’re only 4 months late to this party. But hey, if you can’t demand accountability from this White House on time just demand accountability whenever you can.

  • $24414377

    Another distraction. We all know the talking points, video etc., are all distractions and lies. Was the WH aware of Brennan running guns through Libya go Syria?

    Why was Stevens not aware of JSOC operations in his area?

    Where are the transcripts of all military communications to/from Benghazi during the time of attack?

    http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2013/02/benghazi_and_private_wars.html#ixzz2LCLHU31

    Is a good read.

    Besides, if we are concerned over al Queda being removed from the talking points, wouldn’t that mean an innocent video maker has been jailed?

  • Love of Country

    Yeah, Barry ….. we all got questions. But first, picture this ….

  • spiv

    Bob must have had a senior moment – he deviated from the script the WH provided.

    • http://twitter.com/cvillecharlie @cvillecharlie

      lol you guys are so butt hurt from losing. We liberals laugh our asses off at you – we bathe in your tears. It’s a great time to be a LOYAL American unlike you uneducated lot.

      • Lady 12

        Are you still laughing at Rubio, who sold more water bottles than Obama created jobs?

        • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

          we have a new troll ‘n da house!

          • Lady 12

            Yes. He seems to be more uneducated than any previous trolls, so it will be even more enjoyable to destroy his posts completely.

          • OneThinDime

            Educated troll is an oxymoron :)

      • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

        loyal to whom? your party? your prez?

      • walterc

        Are you seriously not interested in why those 4 Americans were killed? This has nothing to do with who won the election. $ people were killed after recieving no assistance for 7 hours. And according to the Sec Def Panetta and general whathisname, the president didn’t speak to them more than once and Sec State Hillary didn’t talk to them at all. Who gave the order to stand down? If the president said to do what ever you can to help those people, who decided to not send help? And again, what happened to the survivors? Again, these are questions that I would be asking no matter who was in the White House. Leaving Americans to die when we have military assets less than 2 hours away is a criminal act IMHO.

  • Okie_pastor

    How did the Coptic Christian who made an anti Islam YouTube video get the blame for it all?

  • Chris Fernandez

    The administrations argument sounds exactly like the one they had for Fast & Furious. “We have given them thousands of documents already”.

    While that may be true, you haven’t given us the ones that matter!

  • rennyangel2

    Schieffer tanked during the debates. Another wuss down the drain.

  • TocksNedlog

    “We’ve provided 10,000 pages of documents. 10,000! That’s a lot. And now you want more! What do you mean, you want ‘the important ones that will reveal what was really going on’? Did I not just use a very big number to emphasize how forthcoming we’ve been? Yeah, SO WHAT if it’s a ‘quantity over quality’ argument? Hey, I graduated summa cum laude from St. John’s University, buster! If I say that the big number in and of itself is important, then it’s important!”

  • Garth Haycock

    We know who made that decision. If anyone thinks it was someone other than Obama, they are a fool.

    • http://www.facebook.com/noah.lee3 Noah Lee

      all of the pre-911 warnings?!! i’m sure you would’ve had no problem w/ Bush and ashcroft rounding up every muslim male taking flying lessons and holding them sans due process. second post you’ve used “teabaggers”. are you hoping to be teabagged? do you want balls on your chin?

    • ceyanne

      So you’re from “the more you repeat it, it must be true” camp, huh? This is what you’re going to do? Just copy and paste the same thing over and over again. Brilliant.
