14. I tried to follow the Libya situation...

...from the get-go, but it was horrendously confusing and the right-wing noise machine started up from the very beginning and have continued to lie and engage in hysterics--that it is impossible to even get a reading on what happened.

I am sick to death of this.

The Republicans are trying to hang this on Obama, and say that he covered up that this was a terrorist attack. To what end? That doesn't even make sense. What broader statement are they trying to hang on their bizarre assertions?

I will admit, there is a lot that I don't understand. Obama has not been front and center and clearing this up. He has said that there is an ongoing investigation and the facts will be revealed as the investigation progresses. However...I am a bit foggy about all of this.

It feels like the Obama Administration is being more cautious because they know they're in an election season. They know that anything they say could be distorted or used to harm. Look at those bastards with their hearings--insinuating that the White House screwed up.

This entire situation really reeks, and watching the Republicans turn this into a political fiasco really leaves me wondering about what parts of this very awful situation were orchestrated drama and which parts are authentic? I hate to say it, but I don't trust the Republicans at all, and I consider them capable of anything. They're not being respectful or nor do they appear to be wanting to solve the problem. They seem to be solely hell bent on making this administration look bad very close to the election. I feel theatrics at play here--I'm just not sure when the theatrics began.

The Obama Administration is awaiting investigation results, so they don't report finalities--because those aren't in yet. At the very least--Republicans are filling in the blanks with their bizarre, unhinged conspiracy theories. At worst...well, you fill in the blanks.
