    How convinant for Obama. The MSM ignors what really happened at Benghazi. Four dead Americans. Four top commanders are fired. Why? Because two of them wanted to go into the Embassey to save those Americans. They where told to stand down. Obama knew what was happening with in the hour of the first attack. Gen. Hamm, went ahead and started to make ready for ground troops to go to the Embassy. The Navy commader for the air craft carrier group ordered his planes to make ready. They were told to stand down. Four dead Americas and four top commders were fired. The White House created the story that they had affairs. Now, you dummies voted for this tyarant. And now, because of Israel’s war with Gaza, the whole story is buried. Get ready for the next coming event. More distractions from the white hourse. On November 6th, my America died.
