Geraldo Rivera and Eric Bolling got into a shouting match when Rivera accused his Fox News colleague of lying about the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

The deadly attack has been a major focus for Fox News, with some hosts suggesting that the White House tried to cover up what really happened. Friday's "Fox and Friends" — which aired graphics that read "Cover-Up of The Cover-Up" and "Secret note showed vulnerable consulate" — was no exception.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Speaking to Rivera, Bolling alleged that the fighting at the compound lasted seven hours and that the United States sent "no help." </span><span style='font-size: 17pt'>“That is an obscene lie,” Rivera charged. “You are a politician looking to make a political point.”</span>Bolling argued that there were American forces in Tripoli that could have been sent to Benghazi. Rivera said that they were.

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>"You are misleading the American people because you want to make a political point,” he said to Bolling. “We have never in the history of this republic mounted a raid on the circumstance described here ever."</span>

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>He went on to say that he spoke to Charles Woods, whose son Tyrone was killed in the attack, and that it broke his heart to hear Woods' charges against the White House. </span>

<span style='font-size: 17pt'>Rivera exclaimed, "He is being led down a primrose path of misinformation that is making it look as if President Obama went gambling in Las Vegas when he could've been saving people in Benghazi and that's a lie!" </span>

LOL. Actually I was going to post that with this LINK (http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/david-ignatius-cias-benghazi-timeline-reveals-errors-but-no-evidence-of-conspiracy/2012/11/01/a84c4024-2471-11e2-9313-3c7f59038d93_story.html)

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body"> The CIA timeline was described to me Thursday by a senior intelligence official. The narrative of events is dramatic and disturbing. Rather than try to parse each detail, let’s look at a summary of the highlights. The times listed are Benghazi time on the night of Sept. 11 and the morning of Sept. 12:

●9:40 p.m.: A senior State Department security officer at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi called the CIA base, at an annex about a mile away, and requested assistance: “The compound is under attack. People are moving through the gates.” CIA officers at the base can hear the alarm, and a team immediately begins gathering weapons and preparing to leave.

●10:04 p.m.: A six-person rescue squad from the agency’s Global Response Staff (GRS) leaves in two vehicles. The team leader is a career CIA officer; the team includes a contractor named Tyrone Woods, who later died. During the previous 24-minute interval, the CIA base chief calls the February 17 Brigade, other militias and the Libyan intelligence service seeking vehicles with .50-caliber machine guns. Nobody responds. The team leader and the base chief agree at 10:04 that they can’t wait any longer, and the squad heads for the consulate.

The senior intelligence official said that he doesn’t know whether Woods or any of the other team members agitated to go sooner but added that he wouldn’t be surprised. “I want them to have a sense of urgency,” he said.

●10:10 p.m.: The rescue team reached a chaotic intersection a few blocks from the consulate. Militias gathered there have several .50-caliber machine guns, which the CIA team tries unsuccessfully to commandeer; three militiamen offer to help. The rescue party now includes 10 people: six GRS officers, a CIA translator and the three Libyan volunteers.

●10:20 p.m.: A reconnaissance party of two GRS officers heads to the consulate; at 10:25, three more GRS officers enter the main gate and begin engaging the attackers. The firefight lasts about 15 minutes.

●10:40 p.m.: Members of the CIA team enter the burning inferno of “Villa C,” where Ambassador Christopher Stevens is believed to be hiding. CIA officers try numerous times to reach the “safe room” but are driven back by the intense smoke and fire. Small-arms fire continues from the Libyan attackers. </div></div>

All this BS about how Obama let them die without doing anything is just that, BS.

Geraldo is an affirmative action guy who was hired at fox for ethnic reasons. All of his impressive life's experiences have, unfortunately, been tainted by his bias.

More lies from the low information of the right.

You do this all the time. You post one false statement after another.

Nothing new, just more irrational RW BS.
