Not so fast playing fast and loose with the facts Dianne. Multiple credible sources have indicated that the U.S. State Department knew a full 48-hours in advance of the U.S. Embassy in Libya and chose to do nothing about it.
You would do well to pay heed to one of your own the departed, Daniel Patrick Moynihan “You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts.”
It’s become clear to those who have been watching your feeble attempts to dodge a debate with Elizabeth Emken that you are no longer qualified at 79 years of age to represent California and the United States in the U.S. Senate. It’s well past time you have retired. You have been around “TOO LONG” and your TAX and SPEND Policies are “TOO WRONG” for the realities facing California and the United States today.
What do we know about the attacks against a U.S. consulate in Libya, which left 4 Americans dead, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens?
Sources tell CNN that the attack was planned and a small pro-al Qaeda group who claimed responsibility for a previous assault on the U.S. compound in Benghazi is considered a prime suspect.
Early in the investigation, the Romney campaign criticized the Obama administration for appearing sympathetic to the individuals who started the violence against the consulate. But, since the release of the Romney campaign’s statement, the actual timeline of events suggest Romney was wrong in his accusation.
Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee told CNN’s Erin Burnett that the comments should not have been made without knowing the facts.
“It was a pre-emptive strike on what somebody thought might be coming, but wasn’t sure,” Sen. Feinstein said. “It’s exactly what shouldn’t be done and that is make a comment before you even know what the situation is.”
