Obama Faults U.S. ‘Sloppiness’
in Fatal Benghazi Attack

New York Times, by Eric Schmitt

Washington - President Obama, in his most detailed comments on an independent inquiry’s report on the attack against the American diplomatic compound in Libya that killed four Americans on Sept. 11, said Sunday that the security and management flaws identified were “huge problems” that reflected “sloppiness” in how the State Department safeguards its missions abroad. (Snip) “My message to the State Department has been very simple, and that is we’re going to solve this,” Mr. Obama said. “We’re not going to be defensive about it; we’re not going to pretend that this was not a problem —

Wonder how the families of the Navy SEALs are feeling right about now.

That mother who excoriated Gov. Romney for honoring her son owes an apology.

So either the NY Slimes didn´t think to ask who was responsible for trusting the Libyans with security of the embassy OR he wouldn´t tell them and they didn´t want to make it appear he was covering it up.

Charlene Lamb, an assistant secretary of state for security, or some such title, refused Ambassador Stevens´ request for more security, after consulting with (senior) state department officials."
Who would be the senior officials??

And did the four State department people, including Charlene Lamb, stop working for State, or were they reassigned to other state department duties??

Notice how Barry and the media are making this about the attackers and not the fact that he refused to send help and let four Americans die ,

i watched 60 minutes tonight (my liberal husband likes the program and it comes on directly after football). several fairly interesting "articles" about various subjects. now, you know that if george bush had been president during the benghazi horror, there would have been a dozen, maybe more, articles delving into, probing, questioning and doing what they should be doing now: finding out what happened, why it happened and who was in charge. we will never find out what happened there because the press will cover for him until he dies. republicans will be blamed for everything possible and anything that goes wrong that absolutely can´t be attributed to republicans will be ignored or glossed over. i have quit looking for answers from any mainstream outlet, there will never ever be any.
my poor, poor country.

Ever since that total phoney setup of Gen. Petraeus did not quite get the accepetance of the public it was supposed to, Obama has been looking for a fallguy.

Hillary fills the bill perfectly. She looks like a guy and her forgetfulness can always be blamed on the new buzzword, "sloppiness".

What a poor excuse of a man, and a worse excuse as a supposed leader.

"Sloppiness" is what happens in the kitchen when you don´t put all the dishes away or you leave a project´s papers on your desk.

The word has no place in any president´s vocabulary regarding our national security and the lives of our diplomats.
What a poor excuse for a human being, let alone a president!

The photo on Lucianne´s front page showing the bloody handprints is so heartaching, to contemplate the ordeal which produced them - and I wonder, if the FBI really did an investigation of the "crime scene" - have the investigation yielded any clues as to whose handprints those are? Couldn´t they study the DNA with all that evidence and determine whether it was Ambassador Stevens or one of the other three men who perished? Perhaps it was not the blood of one of the four Americans but perhaps a brave Libyan who attempted to help the Americans but is not known, not counted. I also want to know what those words mean that are spraypainted on the wall in the background.

I wonder what God´s purpose is in letting Obama run our beloved country into the ground.

Captain Ahab was mad for revenge of the "white whale", and so is this new Captain, Rehab, the Transformer.

Also, Obama noted the sloppiness, but it was about the news handling, and their bomb of a lie, the CIA planted provocation video. Didn´t sell well, but the cover holds. No witness tales. None. No mission secrets revealed, the weapons added to the Brotherhoods arsenal, and the attack plans proceed as the Congress wet´s it´s pants over it´s cowardliness in the face of growing tyranny. Caesar.

Sloppiness? How about the fact that ill winds were blowing against the muslims and Barry had to side with them and just let those muslims murder the 4 americans while he stood by and watched real-time?

As for the Hildebeast...you can forget the supposed concussion and blood clot. She´s getting a face lift for her hopeful 2016 run to expand Barry´s transformation of the US into a 13th century country. As you age, it takes longer and longer for surgery to heal.

Nobody still knows the actual reason they were denied additional security and it has to be some screwball leftist´s idea. My guess is this was some sort of bastardized outreach,trying to demonstrate we trust our new puppet regime in Libya.This is what they´re hiding,liberal nievetae.

This is the same type thinking behind the military´s new handbook which bans service people from making derogatory remarks about the Taliban.They blame this for so called insider attacks.So instead of stepping up efforts to obliterate the Taliban,they take away soldiers free speech rights.

Lawmakers dug in Sunday for a proxy war over the new health care law, now that President Obama has selected a well-known manager to replace Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and lead his signature program into a new era. Mr. Obama says his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, is a “proven manager” who will lead HHS with distinction and build on whatever momentum the White House gained by signing up 7.5 million Americans in private health coverage from October to March. But Sen. Tim Scott, South Carolina Republican and member of the Senate Finance Committee that will vet

A woman has been arrested on six counts of murder after authorities found the bodies of seven infants packed into separate cardboard boxes at a home in Utah, police said. Police arrested Megan Huntsman, 39, of Pleasant Grove, on Saturday following a gruesome discovery at a residence formerly occupied by the woman who they say moved out in 2011. Officers responding to a phone call from a family member who is currently living at the Pleasant Grove residence arrived at the home to find the first baby which "appeared to be a full term," according to a police statement.

NASA will launch SpaceX’s Dragon cargo ship to the International Space Station on Monday as planned despite a failure in a backup electronics box for the station’s robotic arm. NASA mission managers said Saturday that the crew on board the ISS is in no danger, but a problem in a backup computer component could have forced a postponement, NBC reports. NASA announced Sunday, however, it would proceed with the launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. late Monday afternoon. The SpaceX Dragon capsule, which is slated to carry 4,600 pounds of supplies to the International Space Station, is scheduled to launch on a SpaceX Falcon 9

Outgoing Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius says the administration´s own predictions that the new health care law´s online sign-up system would be ready by Oct. 1 were "just flat out wrong." Sebelius told NBC´s "Meet the Press" in an interview airing Sunday the health care website´s launch was "terribly flawed and terribly difficult." She says that eight-week period was her low point of her tenure. Sebelius last week announced her resignation. She says she wanted to give President Barack Obama enough time to bring in a new health chief. Sebelius´ resignation comes just a week after sign-ups for

Vatican City - Pope Francis, marking Palm Sunday in a packed St. Peter´s Square, ignored his prepared homily and spoke entirely off-the-cuff in a remarkable departure from practice. Later, he continued to stray from the script by hopping off his popemobile to pose for "selfies" with young people and also sipping tea passed to him from the crowd. In his homily, Francis called on people, himself included, to look into their own hearts to see how they are living their lives. "Has my life fallen asleep?" Francis asked after listening to a Gospel account of how Jesus´ disciples fell asleep shortly before he was betrayed by Judas before his crucifixion.

More than 100 city teachers, administrators and other school staffers have been caught in the last five years engaging in sexual or “inappropriate” relationships with students, The Post has learned. The special commissioner of investigation for city schools, Richard Condon, has fielded 593 complaints about such illicit relationships since April 2009. His office substantiated 104 cases, it ­revealed Friday. “I’m absolutely stunned at that number,” said Laura Timoney, a Community Education Council member whose 15-year-old daughter attends a city high school on Staten Island. “It’s shocking, but what do you do to stop this?”

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, who led the rocky rollout of Obamacare and surprised D.C. observers by stepping down this week, said that if President Obama wanted to talk her out of leaving, he didn’t even get the chance. “I made it pretty clear that that really wasn’t an option, to stay on,” Mrs. Sebelius told NBC’s Andrea Mitchell in an interview aired Sunday. “I mean, I thought it was fair to either commit till January of 2017 or leave with enough time that he would get a strong, competent leader.” Mr. Obama tapped his budget chief, Sylvia Mathews Burwell, to replace Mrs. Sebelius.

Sen. Rand Paul said Sunday he will not decide whether to run for president until after the mid-term elections, noting he still has to poll his family before he builds on straw poll victories and launches an earnest bid. In a wide-ranging interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl, the Kentucky Republican said the GOP needs to “evolve, change and grow” if it wants to win again, and that he wants to be a part of that. He also deflected his positive polling with modesty. “I guess it’s better than not being noticed,” Mr. Paul said. On immigration, he said former Florida Gov.

An automated pot-selling machine was unveiled at an event held at an Avon, Colo., restaurant Saturday, promising a potential new era of selling marijuana and pot-infused snacks from vending machines directly to customers. Its creators say the machine, called the ZaZZZ, uses biometrics to verify a customer´s age. The machine is climate-controlled to keep its product fresh. You may be picturing a vending machine on a sidewalk, ready to dispense pot brownies to anyone with correct change. That´s not quite what backers of the machine have in mind. For now, at least, the ZaZZZ is aimed for use only by medical marijuana patients.

With East-West relations in crisis, NATO described the appearance in eastern Ukraine of men with specialized Russian weapons and identical uniforms without insignia - as previously worn by Moscow´s troops when they seized Crimea - as a "grave development". Ukraine faces a rash of rebellions in the east that it says are inspired and directed by the Kremlin.

That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice!

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment
