Im wondering that if anyone actually showed the video survelliance cameras from that day, what would we see?

Would it be calm as day? Did this shit even happen? We really have absolutely no proof that anything happened. Just a bunch of nonsense from the alphabet networks.

Could it be that we just needed a reason to get the Marines into Libya, for another occupation? Because they are now there, and once a few show up, there are more to come.

Someone here (uh hum) like to talk about conspiracy theories. he states that we need to use science to find solutions. That simply creating theories and then going in reverse is stupid. So I wonder:

What the fuck are we suppose to do? Just sit here and wait for the MSM to feed us some more bullshit? Or should I spend every last penny I have to fly to Libya and try to put the pieces together myself?

And as I ask at the end of everything Libya related- What happened to all of Ghadafi's gold?

Minor correction -- the U.S. did not have an embassy at Benghazi; it was a consulate. I saw some photographs of the attack online. Perhaps they are still there. Things once they are online tend to stay there even if very powerful interests want to take them down so that may be a starting point for you. Then there is also the chatter. Perhaps the remnant of that is still around online. If you truly want to understand, learning the language will be extremely helpful but if you have money, you can hire a translator to help. Google Translate can be a poor-man's translator because it is free.

The translator is an interesting thing to use, especially if they were all screaming about Egypt or something...

Putting out a decent amount of misinformation is key in anything they do, that way they control the opposition agreement too. That being said, who the hell knows whats going on way over there.

There is no absolute certainty about what is going on way over there even for the people who have their boots on the ground there. However, the process of corroborating the information obtained can help glean a good picture of what is really happening there. Misinformation exists but that can be countered with checking the credibility and motivation of the source. It is very hard for a leopard to pretend to be a lion quickly. Much of intelligence gathering works off of information widely and readily available but synthesizing hypotheses and checking them out require efforts that can elude many people.

Do you have any links to decent pieces of information?

[-] 1 points by grapes (5232) 7 years ago

What do you want to research? I use search engines a fair amount. "Decency" of information depends on having a base of knowledge to judge the information and that takes time to develop. Reading widely and ruminating can help develop the knowledge base and the thinking skills. Keep asking the same questions: What, When, Where, Who, How, Why again and again at different abstraction levels and keep on digging and smoothing out any wrinkles encountered.

Now they are wrapping a South Tampa woman into this mess with Petraeus.

This guy is now not testifying this week. Thats the story. Press ignoring it as usual. Now they bring in another woman.

Thats the thing with liars. They have to keep doing it. Too bad we dont have any press with the self decency to ask the tough questions.
