It amazes me I don't see more coverage on the terrorist attack in Libya that took the lives of our ambassador and three other Americans.

When we first heard the news we were told it was caused by a video, made in America, that mocked the prophet Mohamed.

For two weeks the administration, including Hillary Clinton, told the American people it was a spontaneous protest.

Then we found out the White House knew within 24 hours it was a terrorist attack, and the State Department actually watched the attack in real time.

The ambassador had asked for more security, but instead two security groups were recalled. Mind you this happened on the 11th anniversary of 9/11. Who's been lying, and who's to blame?
