Bottom line: All Presidents lie or withhold information, many times at the request of other agencies who may not want sensitive information leaked. This is nothing new. Think about how many soldiers were killed and continue to be killed in Afghanistan and Iraq based on blatant lies.
Benghazi is being made, with every effort by certain groups into some big Presidential conspiracy ...... and this is because four Embassy personnel were killed.
Thousands of US soldiers are dying in Afghanistan and Iraq because of a PROVEN OUTRIGHT LIE .... where's the outrage for these guys. Or is it only convenient to raise their cause when besmirching the current President is the goal.
If you guys don't know how politics and the media work by now .... you have a lot to learn.
OK...since I just bumped this I thought you were responding to my post...although you didn't quote it so sorry for the confusion.
This is now trending the networks and is quite the little fiasco. It was being discussed by a panel of various news correspondents on CNN and the consensus was that this was really wrong of CBS not to have released it immediately after the debate. In a race this close any little issue could have decisive consequences.
