13 Benghazis Happened Under President Bush and Fox News Said Nothing
The Daily Banter’s Bob Cesca produced this astounding timeline of 13 separate incidents where U.S. consulates were attacked during President Bush’s, and then Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld’s, tenure.
The incidents below include all kinds of attacks — gunmen on bikes, suicide bombs, car bombs, gunmen shooting outside, and terrorists storming Consulate compounds similar to what happened in Benghazi. During each of those incidents Fox News was only supportive of the adminsitration’s reactions and there were no calls for the removal of Secretary Condoleeza Rice.
The GOP and Fox’s fixation on Benghazi is partisan propoganda. In some of these attacks the State Department had been forewarned about potential threats, unlike Benghazi. Instead of reporting the incident and the recent allegations from a whistleblower, Fox News is hacking together their own version of the events to further convolute the story’s reality.
