Benghazi and Nancy Pelosi's "Talking Points"

Hat tip Guccifer and Gateway Pundit

A hacked memo from the office of Nancy Pelosi reveals more troubling details about how our government lied to us about the attack on our Benghazi mission. Even more significantly, it states there were, indeed, numerous requests for enhanced security before the attack, requests that were either ignored or denied, and that security was reduced at Benghazi, "a move  that was approved at a high level".

Also note the statement that there was no stand down order order given and that military forces could not have reached the Benghazi mission in time to save Americans. As to the first, that has already been publicly refuted by several contract security personnel who responded from the CIA annex to the mission and who subsequently held off attackers at the CIA annex. As to the claim that US military personnel could not have reached Benghazi in time, that is patently absurd. While it is true that Chris Stevens and Sean Smith died in the initial assault, the overall attack at both sites lasted 13 hours while US forces in the southern European region were gearing up to respond, some being told to change from military to civilian clothes some four times. In the end, they never did respond. In addition, one of the 4 Americans who died in Benghazi, Glen Doherty, was part of the quick reaction team who went from Tripoli to Benghazi when the initial call of an attack came out.

Nancy Pelosi is living proof that idiots should never lie. Among the lies contained in her "talking points" (or should we call them "sticking points") are startling and probably inadvertent admissions of fact.

To think that Pelosi lead the Democrats in the U.S. House. Of course, I will never forget the "you have to sign it, to read it" on the ACA bill.

If Pelosi had a brain, she would take it out and play with it.
