He waited until everyone was dead to even call and ask for assistance. This was after a request for more security was declined and before the administration blamed the attacks on a web video. Is anyone surprised? Why wait this long to reveal their lies?
Apparently campaigning in Vegas was more important. He couldn't be bothered with non important foreign security issues. They did a great job of hiding this until now. I guess that's how things go when you write your own press releases.
If you all knew half of the stuff that goes on, you would wonder about a great amount of things.
Nonetheless, our system elected this guy.
I know, it just seems odd for "the most transparent administration" ever. Its just another lie from our community organizer in cheif.
It probably is the most transparent ever. That just speaks volumes about how opaque American politics are and have been.
As you will see from the responses in this thread, those that voted him in office and support him, have no problem with it at all..
Yeah, unbelievable. Hey,did you guys know the administration before that lied by pumping up faulty intelligence as a reason to go to war?! Yep. No Al Qaeda in Iraq at the time and now billions spent and hundreds of thousands of lives lost.
Keep searching for the truth on Bengazi though you message Sean Hannity.
Just further evidence of the cause of our broken political system. Let's not hold our politicians accountable for issues that will actually effect you and I. You know things like, sequestration, rampant subsidization, or a crumbling infrastructure. Let's cry foul over a terrorist attack, in a country harboring terrorists, then we can all act surprised and pretend a few more guys with guns would have prevented the act from ever taking place.

Relax this guy won a Nobel peace prize.
Actually it isn't they very jealously guard information at this WH. They hold far fewer press conferences, grant far less interviews. Etc. the transparency thing is just another lie you have chosen to believe.
Well if the Bush administration did that then I guess it's okay that the Obana administration did this.
Yeah, because everyone knows that the only measure of transparency is how many press conferences one holds or interviews one grants.
Hell, you're even wrong about the interview numbers, but don't let that stop your nonsensical argument.
WASHINGTON -- During his first eight months in office, President Obama has sat down for three times as many television interviews as his most recent two predecessors combined.
It's foolish to believe that this administration is more transparent than others, it isn't. They are following the whole if you repeat it enough people will start to believe you thing.
Why would anyone defend a politician?
They're all liars and don't give a fvck about anyone but themselves.
It's hilarious how some people on this board rush to defend everything Obama does, no matter how blatantly wrong he is. Like he gives two shits about you.
I never said that this administration was necessarily more transparent than others. I said that your reasons for believing that it isn't are stupid.
Not really. The President went like six months or more without holding a press conference or fielding a question form the press. That's a long time for a president to not have to answer for himself. It isn't the reason why they are less transparent, it's just an example. point being they are not the most transparent administration in history. Just not.
Because they believe Obama loves them. Since they don't believe in God they have subconsciously put Obama on a God like pedestal. In their minds Obama is the embodiment of everything right and good in the world.
Look at CMXI, it doesn't matter what Obama does he supports it. Every. Single. Time.
You really do fear the government, don't you?
Far from it. Things I dislike about Obama: his lenient treatment of BoA and Wall Street following the housing crisis, his refusal to close Guantanamo, how long it took him to publicly support gay marriage, and his willingness to give in to Republican demands without receiving anything in return (case in point - the fiscal cliff negotiations).
Just because you think political views are all or nothing doesn't mean anyone else does. Critical thought requires evaluating individual actions, not just blindly supporting or blindly hating one party or politician.
Lol. What the hell are you talking about?
He got tax hikes in the fiscal cliff negotiations. You should probably read more.
Also your post proves that you take the far left position on every single issue without exception, a sure sign of low intelligence that you can't bring yourself to disagree with the left on even one issue. If the Dems say it you agree with it.
Go ahead and save yourself some time and just link the DNC website in every political thread.

Setting aside the fact that you clearly don't understand the "far left" if you think the modern Democratic Party tone is anything more radical than center-left, I'm curious as to whether or not you can give me one example of an area in which you break with the right.
Healthcare, higher education are two.
Also somewhat on abortion. I am sure there are others.
How do like them apples?
I like them a lot, I'm honestly surprised. So, what are your views on healthcare, higher education, and abortion?
