Bush didn't have to answer any difficult questions of how are embassies were overrun because Dems didn't hold hearings for months demanding cabinet members testify under oath. There were obvious failures in the 13 attacks under GW and there would have been some mistakes shown had Dems dug and dug for political partisan dirt like the Repubs are doing now.

Per Wiki: 9 attacks on US diplomatic missions during GW's administration, 44 dead.
There has been no cover up. All documentation that has been asked for has been provided to congress. The decision not to send the second team from Africa SOCCOM was made by that operational commander, not the President. The decision was made because they could not get there in time to be effective and that it would have been too dangerous for the rescue crew, and left Tripoli too exposed.
However it has come to light according to CBS News that GOP operatives forged or altered the previously released emails to make this appear to be a cover up.
But this is nothing. Remember the falsified evidence from the UK "proving" WMDs in Iraq, while the US Intelligence community was saying that there were none, based on it's HUMINT and SIGINT and Overhead collections and the analysts reports. But no, we had to take this one single un-vetted UK source to bamboozle congress to authorize the war which killed over 4500 US service men and women, and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqis.Source(s): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_attacks_on_di... 27 years USAF Intelligence officer service

Just like Bush blamed the 9/11 terror attacks NOT on our foreign policy, but claimed instead that they "hate us for our freedoms".....yet republicans never once claimed that Bush tried to "cover up" the 9/11 attacks for political gain.
Just like Bush killed two American citizens with his drone strikes way back in 2003, yet one American citizen dies under Obama's drone strikes and republicans are suddenly outraged and call for impeachment.
53 US embassy workers died in 13 different attacks on our embassies under Bush's watch. Another 200 were injured. Republicans never once called for a congressional hearing into their deaths, nor blamed Bush for the attacks. Republicans didnt even know about the numerous Bush era embassy bombings, nor Bush drone killings, nor Bush IRS meddling, etc, until liberals pointed it out to them. For 8 years they said and did nothing, and cheerleaded every single move Bush made, even giving him a 75% approval rating among republicans when he was leaving office. Now, they demand 20 congressional hearings, try to repeal the healthcare law 37 times, and are calling for impeachment. Hypocrites.

How many of them did Bush watch on live feed for 7 hours and refuse to send help when it was asked for?

You got me there, but I have heard about these meaning they were public. I guess Bush didnt lie about them and make bull crap cover stories like Obama

No, that's inaccurate and the huffington post is not the most accurate source. This reporter is way off.
