(DEBATE) Obama touts spendings cuts to Military ONLY.

Of course he would, his passive hatred for the military is legendary at this point.

Muslims attack Buddhists Over Koran facebook image.

Another day and another group targeted by extremist Muslims.

In the most recent attack in the name of Islam, Muslim protesters attacked Buddhist villages in Bangladesh, after an image portraying a burnt Koran was posted on Facebook.

Witnesses said angry crowds set fire to homes and temples in the Cox's Bazar district, forcing families to flee the area, BBC news reported.

Hundreds of protesters reportedly rampaged Buddhist neighborhoods on Saturday and into the early hours of Sunday morning, smashing statues, burning down monasteries and attacking houses.

The man accused of posting the image is in protective custody. Police say he was tagged in the photo but did not post it himself, according to the BBC.

"Before they set fire to my home, they looted everything," resident Sumoto Barua said, according to the news agency. "They took our possessions, money, gold and even computers. Then they torched the house. I am now living under open sky."

Matt Damon's anti-fracking movie financed by OPEC member

Matt Damon's liberalism reaches its logical conclusion as he wants to hurt an American energy sector with a movie made with someone whose interest is stop domestic energy production.

"Promised Land," a new film which takes a strong anti-fracking stance, was financed in part by money from the government of Abu Dhabi capital of the United Arab Emirates (UAE) — a region that stands to profit from the failure of the fracking industry.

This fact that has some questioning the motives behind the investment, and led some bloggers to speak of a "conspiracy theory."

The movie was written by and stars Oscar winner Matt Damon and "The Office's" John Krasinski, both of whom are vocal opponents of the fracking process.

I wonder if both of them went dancing to this when they got the funding.

(REUTERS) White House lied about Benghazi attack

They knew but lied to everyone.

Within hours of last month's attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, President Barack Obama's administration received about a dozen intelligence reports suggesting militants connected to al Qaeda were involved, three government sources said.

Despite these reports, in public statements and private meetings, top U.S. officials spent nearly two weeks highlighting intelligence suggesting that the attacks were spontaneous protests against an anti-Muslim film, while playing down the involvement of organized militant groups.

It was not until last Friday that Director of National Intelligence James Clapper's office issued an unusual public statement, which described how the picture that intelligence agencies presented to U.S. policymakers had "evolved" into an acknowledgement that the attacks were "deliberate and organized" and "carried out by extremists."

The existence of the early reports appears to raise fresh questions about the Obama administration's public messaging about the attack as it seeks to fend off Republican charges that the White House failed to prevent a terrorist strike that left a U.S. ambassador and three others dead.

"What we're seeing now is the picture starting to develop that it wasn't a problem with the intelligence that was given, it's what they did with the intelligence that they were given," Representative Mike Rogers, chairman of the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee, said in an interview on Tuesday.
