Danny Jeffrey wrote an essay complete with a pictorial entitled “The Cave Dwellings of Afghanistan”. The theme is that Afghanis are primitive people that survived centuries of invasions because of their mountainous terrain that has developed cave dwelling system for periods of defense and reclaiming their land after wearied invaders either left or were assimilated into the tribal situations. Thus Afghanis are not now nor will be amenable to Western ways.
I concur with Danny but there were legitimate reasons for America to invade Afghanistan. Now those reasons have been answered and it is time to leave.
The reason for invading Afghanistan is because the then ruler – the One-Eyed Mullah Omar – provided protection to Usama bin Laden as the head of al Qaeda sent Islamic terrorists to the USA that became responsible for around 3000 deaths on American soil. We chased UBL for about a decade until we found him and killed him out in Pakistan.
Being Americans we have attempted to build an infrastructure in Afghanistan that includes democratic principles. Frankly I was all for that agenda; however time has proven that Islam and Western democratic principles are incompatible.
So what’s left? In my thinking it would be to get Mullah Omar who protected UBL. The thing is the One-Eyed Mullah is only alive by reputation. He has not made any verifiable appearances since he fled the collapse of his Taliban regime as the American led forces commenced their invasion:
“…there have been no verifiable communications on paper, by phone, or in audio or video recordings from the so-called Leader of the Faithful, since he disappeared into the Kandahar mountains on the back of a motorcycle in November 2001 as his regime collapsed.” (Taliban Forces Desperate to Hear from Their Absent Leader, Mullah Omar; By Ron Moreau; The Daily Beast; 5/1/13 4:45 AM EDT)
If Mullah Omar is alive he is hiding so deep that the Islamic Terrorists that swear allegiance to him don’t even know if he is running the Taliban terrorist show.
So here’s my thinking: UBL is dead, the Afghan Muslim people are less than pleased with any contribution to Afghanistan and Mullah Omar isn’t running the Taliban operationally.
It is time to leave Afghanistan to its own devices with a warning of future devastation if any Afghan government supports Islamic terrorism on the American homeland. Incidentally devastation does not mean another invasion; it means some kind tactical military action up to and including a small nuke strike to make a point about the long arm of American military might.
Although Justin O. Smith does not mention the term “Islamic Supremacism,” that is what he is actually writing about in this essay.
Anomalies, Martyrs and Terrorism
By Justin O. Smith

The greatest threat to the national security of the United States is not Al Qaeda terrorism, but rather the Islamic faith itself, especially now since Barack Obama seems intent on advancing Islamic interests in our nation over those of American citizens; all of us missed numerous warning signs over three decades leading up to the heinous attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11, however, through the lens of history and present day events, one cannot deny the definitive proof of the violent imperialism intrinsic to Islam. And, despite the number of times anyone asserts in clichéd terms that “not all Muslims are terrorists and not all terrorists are Muslims,” the fact remains that America is today less secure than it was on what many Muslims refer to as “the Tuesday of God’s glory.”
Many people are often beguiled by Islamists’ explanations of terrorism. Harrison Akins, Ibn Khaldun Chair Research Fellow at the American University in DC, would have us believe the assertions of Akbar Ahmed, Chair of Islamic Studies-American Univ, that terrorism is mainly a product of tribal dynamics and codes and a fight for “their rights,” rather than anything emanating from the edicts of Islam. This sort of victimology dismisses the fact that supposedly “civilized and educated” Muslim doctors, lawyers and engineers have engaged in terrorism, the “intellectual elite” supported Iran’s Ayatollah Khomenei and U.S. and European educated Islamists/Muslim Brotherhood members have risen to power and the top positions within Egypt’s present day government. Then there is Remziya Suleyman.
Remziya Suleyman is the director of the Tennessee American Muslim Advisory Council, and since 2011 she has worked towards Sharia law in Tennessee as well as proselytizing and presenting Islam inside U.S. public schools. She states that she is “working for religious freedom for Muslims… even if everyone else’s religious and constitutional freedoms are abridged in the process.” Suleyman also involved Hamas affiliated CAIR in her protest at the Tennessee capitol against the anti-terrorism bill.
Although there are many current cases of attempted terrorist acts by islamofascists residing in the U.S., two older cases are more relevant in light of the recent focus on U.S. border security:
On July 28, 2004, custom officials in McAllen, Texas arrested Farida Goolam Mohamed Ahmed at the airport, when they noticed her South African passport lacked an official entry stamp for the United States. It was soon discovered that this Muslim woman had entered the U.S. illegally; she proved to be a terrorist courier operating between the Middle East mujahadeen and an Al Qaeda cell in New York, as she sneaked into the U.S. nearly 300 times before her arrest. Information from her interrogations led to the arrests of several Al Qaeda agents in Mexico.
Also in 2004, during a search for the terrorist Al Qaeda member, U.S. citizen and nuclear technician known as Adnan el-Shukrijumah, another key Al Qaeda operative, Sharif al-Masri, was arrested in Pakistan. Masri had close ties to al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda’s second in command, and during an interrogation he disclosed that Al Qaeda had made arrangements to smuggle tactical nuclear weapons from Mexico to the U.S. with the help of the Mara Savatrucha Latino street gang.
During the 1970s, India fought a fierce war with her Muslim citizens, until the regions known today as Pakistan and Bangladesh were won by the Muslims. Bangladesh, originally tied to Pakistan politically and under the same government, soon fought an internecine war for independence due to Islamic doctrinal differences. And now today, the Muslims currently living in India are attempting to claim the rest of India and impose Sharia law; the conquest never stops!
Just this year, the world has seen new Islamic generated conflicts, as Uighur Muslims in western China (near the Afghanistan border) have stirred in a move towards independence, the Islamic Maghreb and Taureg rebels temporarily held the northern half of Mali and the Rohingya Muslims of Myanmar have attacked the Buddhists. Although the following has occurred often over the centuries, on April 6, the Muslims in Egypt also once more felt compelled to mount an unprovoked attack on Egypt’s Coptic Christians.
On January 13, 2013, America was once again forced to watch Muslims mock our U.S. Constitution, as Mustafaa Carroll, Executive Director of CAIR/Dallas-Ft Worth area, stated at an Islamic rally in Austin, Texas: “If we are practicing Muslims, we are above the law of the land.” He also dismissed critics of Sharia law as being “anti-foreign.” But one should also note that numerous current and ex-FBI agents, such as Mike Rolf (‘Muslim Mafia’) and John Guandolo have referred to CAIR offices as “a turnstile for terrorists and their supporters.”
In February 2013, a Syrian born Arab-American woman and psychiatrist, Dr. Wafa Sultan wrote in part in ‘The Rutherford Reader’: “I do not view Islam as a religion. Islam is a political doctrine, which imposes itself by force. Any doctrine whatsoever that calls to kill those who do not believe in it is not a religion.” This same view is held by Stephen Coughlin, Navy War College lecturer, Lt Colonel Matthew Dooley, Joint Forces Staff College, Shireen Burki (JFSC), General William G. Boykin (ex-Commander/US Special Forces), myself and many others across America.
A few years ago, Salman Rushdie gave a lecture on C-SPAN from New York. The complete essence of his message was that when a Muslim moves from the Middle East to any place else, say Shelbyville or Murfreesboro, Tennessee, he is not looking to take advantage of the American way of life to better himself. Rather, he sees himself as part of the advance guard to spread Islam to his new country, whether he arrives legally or illegally; it is long past time that we demand of our leaders the expulsion of all Muslims not holding U.S. citizenship!
Some of the world’s so-called “intellectuals” saw a seeming shift within the ummah/worldwide Islamic community, when The Islamic Society (operates Denmark’s largest mosque) and Minhaj ul Quran (Danish offshoot of a Pakistani anti-blasphemy group) denounced the failed assassination attempt on Lars Hedegaard, an anti-Islam polemicist, and they defended his right to speak freely; however, America and any nation that harbors Muslims should not take away too much hope from this anomaly, because, holistically, an easily estimated 400 million islamofascists across the globe still don’t mind burning or beheading people simply on the charge of blasphemy, adultery, insulting Mohammed or apostasy… and, three-fourths of the remainder stand back and allow it in tacit approval.
America needs a few extremists of Her own to grasp the mantle of truthful, credible leadership… men and women who exhibit various combinations of eloquence, strategic vision, patience, combat record and managerial skills. Remember Senator Barry Goldwater’s words delivered to the 1964 Republican National Convention: “I would remind you that extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice. Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue.” This is not to suggest we recruit our own murderous terrorists after the fashion of Mariam Farhat, Palestinian Legislative Council member and “Mother of Martyrs” (died March 17, 2013 in Gaza City), who encouraged three sons to die in suicide attacks against Israel and told her four year old grandson in 2004, “You will be a martyr one day.” It simply means we fight with every means available to save our nation and our freedom, not shrinking from combat in any arena that may prove necessary, as we hope for the emergence of a leader the caliber of Washington, Jefferson and Reagan… a leader who understands that while there may be shades of opinion among Muslims, as a totalitarian system of thought Islam has remained unchanged for 1200 years, and there is no such thing as a peaceful, tolerant, coexistent and “moderate” Islam”!

“As I recall Obama and Clinton meeting flag-draped coffins of four brave Americans in feigned respect, I am ashamed of a people who could reelect such a thing to the Office of the President. A president should always strive for more than “adequate,” because to be merely adequate is meeting only a bare minimum of requirements” (Justin O. Smith; Flag Draped Coffins; 2/25/13)
Justin Smith properly castigates President Barack Hussein Obama and his Administration over Benghazigate. The above quote is there to wet the thirst of your curiosity.
Flag Draped Coffins
By Justin O. Smith
February 25, 2013 at 2:27pm
While I understand the current mission of the U.S. African Command to counter, stop and destroy Islamist militants and to fight terrorism without being drawn into a major conflict, the lack of preparation and the ignored warnings prior to the 9/11 attacks on the U.S. facilities at Benghazi are inexcusable and indefensible; repeatedly we have heard Obama and everyone associated with his administration declare that the U.S. response to these attacks was “adequate.” But more than this, as more facts are uncovered, no doubt is left that this administration is incompetent, and it is engaged in a cover-up of mammoth proportions.
Many Democrats call any criticism concerning the events surrounding the Benghazi slaughter “GOP political pandering,” but whatever your party affiliation, it is incomprehensible and beyond incompetence that Gen. Carter Ham did not request any additional forces to be on hand on the anniversary of the attacks on September 11, 2001, despite his belief that the intelligence did not indicate an imminent attack. Ham must have been struck deaf, dumb and blind, because nothing else explains such a casual dismissal of, at the very least, ten months of communiqués and memos from the Benghazi Consulate that indicated a dire and increasingly dangerous situation looming on the horizon. And on that same note, one must wonder, as heads of the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), what bribe or coercion influenced retired Admiral Mike Mullen and retired Ambassador Thomas Pickering to find the Obama administration’s response to these attacks “adequate.”
I also wonder if Obama himself or Hillary Clinton has explained to the families of Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dogherty just how “adequate” the response really was? I’ll bet Tyrone Woods thought the response was “adequate” as he painted the terrorists’ mortar armed position with a laser and waited for it to be bombed by a drone or jet fighter from Aviano Airbase (Italy)… right up until he cursed Obama with his last dying gasp.
In conjunction with Glenn Dogherty’s Libyan mission to recover advanced weapons systems, such as SA-7 missiles from the hands of the Islamists, Ambassador Stevens was negotiating a weapons transfer and removal of SA-7s from the hands of Libyan extremists on the night of 9/11; FoxNews recently reported that the Libyan vessel ‘Al Entisar’ arrived in the Turkish port of Iskenderun, just 35 miles from the Syrian border, on September 6 with a cargo of RPGs, shoulder launched missiles and surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles. Add to this Stevens’ meeting with Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin the night Stevens was murdered, and it is not far-fetched, rather highly likely, that the Obama administration has been running weapons through Turkey to the rebels in Syria, mostly comprised of Islamists and Al Qaeda and enemies of the U.S.
Although Clinton stated before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, “I am determined to leave the State Dept and our country safer, stronger and more secure,” her determination on 9/11/12 was focused on joining in the spinning of the story, the obfuscation and outright lies originating with Obama. Clinton was actually notified of the attacks around 4PM and about an hour before Obama was notified by Leon Panetta. Apparently they sat on their thumbs and spun afterwards, despite Clinton’s claim that “we kept talking with everyone through the night.” But through a response garnered by Senator Lindsey Graham’s efforts in blocking Chuck Hagel’s nomination for Secretary of Defense, we know neither Clinton nor Obama attempted to contact government officials in Libya to help rescue our U.S. citizens that night, if time and logistics really were the problem; however, Obama did call Clinton at 10PM, and it was “about 10PM” when the State Dept released Clinton’s statement (FactCheck.org) entitled ‘Statement on the Attack in Benghazi’, which linked the attacks to an anti-Islamic video.
While the attacks were still ongoing, a lot of time was wasted simply doing nothing and fretting about political futures rather than saving American lives. When asked about Panetta’s and Gen. Dempsey’s Senate testimony that they weren’t in touch with the White House after their meeting ended at 5:30PM, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney stated, “They said they hadn’t spoken with the president. The president has a National Security Advisor… He has a Deputy National Security Advisor and remember he had already spoken with… the Secretary of Defense, with the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.” And with pin-point accuracy, Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) February 7th questioning of Panetta before the Armed Services Committee exposes Carney’s lie: “Did you communicate with anyone else at the White House that night?” Panetta answered, “No.”
After Senator Ron Johnson (R-Wisc) placed Hillary Clinton on the spot regarding the fact that no protest existed prior to the attack, Clinton angrily retorted, “What difference… does it make?” The difference it makes is this, Mrs Clinton: Your outright lying and collaboration with Obama in this matter created a delay that cost Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dogherty their lives; no good reason can be given for not having ordered an airstrike on the terrorists’ position. And for fear of forced retirement and other curious reasons, some of the upper echelon military ranks have lost their spine, as they support the Democratic Party line, Obama’s position and the delusive findings of the ARB!
As I recall Obama and Clinton meeting flag-draped coffins of four brave Americans in feigned respect, I am ashamed of a people who could reelect such a thing to the Office of the President. A president should always strive for more than “adequate,” because to be merely adequate is meeting only a bare minimum of requirements; while Jay Carney quotes page 37 of the ARB report, “the safe evacuation of all U.S. government personnel from Benghazi twelve hours after the initial attack… was the result of exceptional… military response…,” an immense number of accomplished military minds such as Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer and Gen. William Boykin, ex-Commander of U.S. Special Forces, have refuted this analysis, which leaves dozens of unanswered questions: Why haven’t Americans heard from the surviving diplomatic security officer, who saw the attack begin and alerted the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli that they were under siege? … Why haven’t we heard the testimony of the thirty-two survivors, who Gen. C.K. Hyde confirms were evacuated to Ramstein Airbase (Germany)? … Why didn’t the Turkish Consul General warn Ambassador Stevens about the Al Qaeda checkpoints after he left at 8:35 PM Benghazi time? It doesn’t matter that protocol and standard operating procedures were followed and the response was “adequate.” Whatever happened to initiative and rising above and beyond the call of duty? No doubt remains that Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dogherty’s deaths were unnecessary, preventable and lay on Obama’s head!
“Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; or close the wall up with our American dead. In peace there’s nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility: But when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favour’d rage.” -literary license taken with Shakespeare’s ‘Henry the Fifth’

Jabhat al-Nusrah Assassinates Alawite Shi’ites
John R. Houk
© February 19, 2013
Yesterday I posted some thoughts on an article by Greg Campbell about the potential conspiracy of Obama and his Leftist minions in his Administration preparing to terminate the 2nd Amendment gun rights of Americans in order to squash self-protection in an economic collapse scenario. Campbell has discovered that various government agencies have ordered an unreasonable amount of hollow-point bullets without a credible explanation for such an order.
Along those lines Theodore Shoebat wonders why the Obama Administration is so hot to restrict gun ownership while evidence is suggesting the President has ordered the arming of al Qaeda-minded rebels against a ruthless dictator in Bashar al-Assad. Assad is an evil enemy of America and Israel as well a minion of Iran, BUT so are al Qaeda-minded rebels.
Realistically U.S. Foreign Policy is in the proverbial rock and the hard place. Bashar al-Assad is a genocidal dictator just like his daddy Hafez. Syria is a minion of U.S. hating Iran. As Iran’s minion Syria has been a rogue nation protecting Islamic terrorists of both Shia (Hezbollah) and Sunni (Hamas) persuasions when their agendas are to destroy Israel. Bashar al-Assad’s Syria is definitely NO friend to the USA or Israel.
The al Qaeda rebels in Syria is one of many rebel groups yet apparently the current most effective in battling Assad’s Syrian army. This al Qaeda in Syria calls itself Jabhat al Nusra and is affiliated with al Qaeda Iraq (AQI). AQI of course was the central insurgents that fought U.S. troops in Iraq until weakened by the success of The Surge that won over Iraqis to help the U.S. led troops because in their Muslim mind the USA was the lesser of two evils with AQI’s extreme brutality. Radical Islamic rebels in Syria particularly Jabhat al Nusra is again definitely NO friend to the USA or to Israel.
AND YET President Barack Hussein Obama is committed to finding back door ways to arm the Radical Islamic rebels that hate America just as much as Bashar al-Assad.
For America to maintain an influence in the Middle East our nation is in the unenviable position of helping two evil anti-American entities that hate our ally Israel. Helping the rebels places a monkey wrench in the Iranian agenda in the Middle East. Saudi Arabia recognizes this because it is pouring its Wahhabi money into the Syrian Rebel cause.
I hate to tell everyone this. Due to Iran’s hatred of Israel and willingness to help Sunni and Shia Radical Islamic terrorists in an agenda to drive Israel into the sea, the USA will eventually become embroiled in a Middle East war on behalf of Israel. UNLESS …
That is unless President Barack Hussein Obama is willing to throw the Jewish State of Israel under the bus disavowing our commitment of defense for whatever lame reason that is supportive of the perception of Middle Eastern peace.
This brings us back to Theodore Shoebat’s premise of why is Barack Hussein Obama trying to disarm Americans while arming Islamic terrorists in the Middle East?
Obama Wants To Disarm Americans But Arm Terrorists
February 17, 2013
Obama wants to decree a ban on all assault rifles and semi-automatic weapons, which would apply to rifles and pistols. On this ban, Obama stated clearly:
I’m going to be putting forward a package and I’m going to be putting my full weight behind it… I’m going to be making an argument to the American people about why this is important and why we have to do everything we can to make sure that something like what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary does not happen again.
Yet, the Obama administration has been involved in providing weapons to rebels who have committed many atrocities throughout Syria. Why must Americans be disarmed and jihadists be given weapons to? Americans are simply observing a right, while the Islamists want guns to force Syria into becoming a Sharia governed state.
Leon Panetta, who is now retiring, and General Martin Dempsey, the principle military adviser of Obama, have both revealed that they supported a plan last year composed by Hillary Clinton and General Petraeus that would provide weapons to the Syrian rebels, who are all fighting for a jihadist cause.
John Mccain also supported, and still supports, this plan, saying
“I urge the president to heed the advice of his former and current national security leaders and immediately take the necessary steps, along with our friends and allies, that could hasten the end of the conflict in Syria”
Though Obama is said to have turned down this plan, he still has supported the Syrian rebellion in a very covert and elusive manner. The current administration has instead used a middle-man: Saudi Arabia, to receive American weapons and then transfer them to the hands of the jihadists.
Michael Kelley of Business Insider reported last year that in
2011 the U.S. sold $33.4 billion worth of weapons to Saudi Arabia and $1.7 billion to Qatar as sales tripled to a record high and accounted for nearly 78 percent of all global arms sales.
And where did these weapons go to? Syria, where they were obtained by jihadists who would not hesitate for a second to behead any American, or any non-Muslim.
As one American official put it:
“The opposition groups that are receiving the most of the lethal aid are exactly the ones we don’t want to have it”
Though the U.S. is not directly sending arms to the revolutionists, it is providing support for shipping small arms such as rifles (which Obama wants to ban in the U.S.) and grenades, and therefore, is nevertheless directly supporting the rebels themselves.
So, to Obama Americans shouldn’t have rifles but Syrian rebels should? This dangerous distortion is just more evidence as to how supportive the current administration has been for the Islamists.
The American government actually expected an organized plan mapped out by the rebels that would show how Syria will be governed in the future. But they haven’t received any future plans, and the reason is that the rebels are using the Americans for the assistance but refuse to reveal their true intentions for a post-Assad Syria, since what they really desire is a Muslim Brotherhood ruled nation.
One Middle Eastern diplomat, who has worked extensively with the C.I.A., has said that there hasn’t been any report by the rebels as to how Syria will be ruled after Assad is removed. In his own words:
We haven’t seen anyone step up to take a leadership role for what happens after Assad, … There’s not much of anything that’s encouraging. We should have lowered our expectations
Syria is going down the road to become just another state of the future Sunni confederacy that is forming, alongside Egypt and Libya.
Obama said to NBC that
there are a vast majority of responsible gun owners out there who recognize that we can’t have a situation in which somebody with severe psychological problems is able to get the kind of high capacity weapons that this individual in Newtown obtained and gun down our kids.
Yet, his administration is helping ship rifles and grenades to Syria, and is working with the Saudis to provide arms to Islamic renegades who themselves have severe urges to commit some of the most vile violence caught on film.
Just to give you a picture of how these rebels use their guns, here is a video of jihadists executing a Syrian police officer:
VIDEO: Implementing of the Death Sentence Against a Policeman at the Hands of Criminal Gangs (Title translated by Google Translate)
Another film I found shows a sadistic bunch of rebels beheading a man in cold blood while laughing and saying “Allah is greater.” If you have the heart for it, the video is found here:
Recent footage shows jihadists executing an innocent civilian. The killer even phones his mother to let her know the sinister act he is about to commit:
In Syria right now, the most armed entity is the military, the second most equipped are the rebels, and the most defenseless are the civilians. In the midst of the fray, the civilians are the ones who suffer the most, since the Islamists have the weapons, and the military is unable to protect all places of the country at once.
Now, apply this to America. If a full weapons band was ever decreed, the military, the police, and the lawless would be the most armed, and American civilians helpless. Police and military personal would not be able to protect the entire country, leaving the criminals many opportunities to pick out their victims.
Obama and the rest of his Leftist ilk keep promoting the idea that guns are the problem, while neglecting the roots of the issue at hand: violent ideologies. All murderers, be they jihadists or spree killers, reject the philosophical idea that life is sacred. Since the Left is not pro-life, they have refused to confront this issue all together, and so are now giving the way to terrorists. The assistance to terrorists in the Middle East will provide confidence for Islamists here in America. Just take a look at the news now. Just this month, a Muslim named Yusuf Ibrahim shot to death two Coptic Christians (Hanny F. Tawadros, 25, and Amgad A. Konds, 27), decapitated them, severed their hands, and buried them in a randomly picked yard. We’re going to be seeing more of this as Islam is allowed to rise and thrive on our insane obsession on tolerance.
As I write in my book, For God or For Tyranny, when the Third Reich reigned, Hitler and his minions established the Nazi Weapons Act of 1938, which prohibited German civilians from owning any firearms. The Left is doing the same thing, but in a ‘nicer,’ ‘gentler,’ more ‘sensitive’ and gradual way. Only those without prudence, foresight, and some historical knowledge on how tyrannies function, would believe that the Obama administration really wants to end crime and protect children (they are all pro-choice).
In our Declaration of Independence, one of the stated reasons for the American Revolution was that King George
excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare, is undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
If the Second Amendment is ever done away with, the only people that would be helped are the savages amongst us.

Obama Wants To Disarm Americans But Arm Terrorists

Publicly it is apparent that President Barack Hussein Obama is content to let the State Department to be answerable to all the nefarious decisions regarding Benghazigate. Has anyone noticed that Obama is adeptly dodging the Benghazigate issue by taking advantage of Hillary Clinton’s resignation as Secretary of State and the confirmation/oath of Office by new Secretary of State John Kerry?
Acting on the last days of her Office as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton managed to turn Senate queries about Benghazigate into a swoon-fest by the Democratic Party members. Hillary’s inadequate answers to the few serious questions cast her way can be summed up with her edgy response to one of the questions:
“What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Hillary’s cover-up is becoming classic Obama/Clinton obfuscation to dodge the tough questions. The obfuscation runs something like, ‘How dare you try to connect me to something nefarious when the fall-out has already occurred?’ The next step in a cover-up is to blame someone else for the Obama Administration/State Department decisions that led to the Benghazigate slaughter of Americans including sodomizing and killing Ambassador Chris Stevens (SA Forbes.com) by Islamic terrorists that hate America. The initial blame game was to point fingers at the Republican led House. Those dastardly Republicans cut funding for Embassy security. As if those cuts kept the Clinton led State Department from shoring up a dangerous situation in Libya which undoubtedly included secret meetings between Ambassador Stevens, Libyan Officials, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Qatar and Islamist rebels trying to topple Syria’s Assad government. The secret talks were about sending Qaddafi weapons to the Islamist Syrian rebels via Turkey financed by Saudi Arabia and Qatar. There is also a theory that is darker than sending weapons to al Qaeda Syria. This theory is about preventing arms to be sent to AQ-Syria and to rather be redirected to Hamas (SA Freedom Rings 1776) to be used against the Israelis. Either way it is an example of the Obama Administration friendliness toward Radical Islam. That, my friends, is the motive for the Obama/Hillary obfuscation and cover-up of what really happened in Benghazi.
Thank God there are a few Republicans refusing to back down from the Obama/Clinton smoke and mirrors. ACT for America is drumming up support to get behind Rep. Frank Wolfe (R-VA) call for a Select Committee to investigate Benghazigate somewhat on the scale of the old Watergate Hearings that gave the legal vehicle that led to the resignation of President Nixon and ultimate pardon issued by unelected President Ford to keep him out of the judicial process.
Now we can add Republicans Senator Rand Paul and Rep. Jeff Duncan to the list calling for a Congressional Special Investigation relating to the government and Benghazigate. They have sent an official joint letter to the Dem Party and Republican leadership in the House and Senate urging a Special Investigation.
Below is the email I received from ACT for America which provides a link to add your name to an open letter to the House of Representatives backing Rep. Wolfe’s House Resolution 36 to form a House Select Committee to investigate Benghazigate.
Benghazi Action Alert!
Sent by ACT for America
Sent: 2/4/2013 1:10 PM
It’s time America got answers!
Please sign our letter to Congress calling for a thorough congressional investigation of Benghazi!
Last Friday, a terrorist blew himself up at the U.S. embassy in Turkey.
Unfortunately, this likely won’t be the last time this occurs.
This is what happens when American leadership signals weakness, indecision and wavering in response to the threat of radical Islam.
Our enemies didn’t miss President Obama’s mixed-message response to the Benghazi consulate attack.
They watched UN Ambassador Susan Rice blame the attack on a video, which only encouraged militants to riot in front of American embassies all over the world.
They know that no one has yet been arrested for the attack.
They saw Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s outrageous response during her congressional testimony, when she asked, “What difference, at this point, does it make?” regarding why the attack happened.
While the American people still don’t have answers to many of the questions swirling around Benghazi, our enemies have drawn their own conclusion—they see weakness, confusion and indecision.
And they have become emboldened as a result.
It’s past time America got answers, answers that weren’t forthcoming at the House and Senate hearings.
This is why we’re urging you to sign our open letter to the House leadership demanding the creation of a House Select Committee to thoroughly investigate what happened in Benghazi and why.
Unanswered questions include:
§ Who exactly was responsible for the attack?
§ Why has not even one of the terror suspects been taken into custody?
§ Why did members of the Administration falsely claim on numerous occasions that a low-budget movie was the catalyst for the attack, something known to be untrue?
§ Why was there no immediate military response during the attack to either rescue the victims or recover the bodies?
§ Is it true, as the New York Times reported, that militants involved in the recent attack of an Algerian gas complex also were involved in the Benghazi incident?
Rep. Frank Wolf has introduced H. Res. 36, which calls for the creation of this Select Committee.
The House leadership needs to hear from the grassroots that there is a demand for the creation of this committee to thoroughly investigate what happened in Benghazi.
Please add your name to our open letter to the House leadership, and forward this email to everyone you know.
It’s tragic enough that the families of the four men who died in Benghazi still don’t have all the answers.
But how many more of our embassies are now in the crosshairs of Islamic jihadists as a result?

Have you had an opportunity to listen to the hypocritical drivel proceeding from the mouths Secretary Hillary Clinton and the Dem Party Senators at the Benghazi Hearings? Does Obama own the Republican Party now? When the tough questions began Hillary would give the gruff evil eye and the GOP would back down. The disgrace of the ineffective GOP Senators to hold Hillary accountable even if she popped a gasket is shameful. GOP fear of BHO and Hillary is another reason for Conservatives to consider abandoning the Republican Party and begin building a grassroots national base for an alternative political party to confront the Leftist vision of the Democrats.
Anyway after listening to this politburo representation in the Senate I discovered a lengthy and yet concise report on the Benghazi Massacre that the Obama Administration could have stopped. The Accountability Review Board (ARB) led by Soros servant and Islamist loving Thomas Pickering basically gave anyone in the higher levels of the Obama Administration a clear pass (cough – high level as in President Obama and Secretary Clinton?). Independent examination of Benghazi data that was available imply Pickering’s panel and report was deficient in assigning accountability.
With this in mind Determine The Networks has that lengthy yet concise report that will bring more clarity to Benghazigate than Secretary Clinton’s contrived testimony which was more a Dem farewell party than an investigation.
Below I am going to post a hint of the DTN report which has analysis and timelines. Then I strongly encourage you to read the rest on the DTN site.
BENGHAZI: THE TERRORIST ATTACK OF SEPTEMBER 11, 2012
Alert Sent: January 23, 2013 2:03 PM
This report examines the most significant events that occurred before, during, and after the September 11, 2012 Islamic terrorist attacks against an American diplomatic mission (and a nearby CIA annex) in Benghazi, Libya. The compound that housed the diplomatic mission possessed none of the security features usually found in such a facility: e.g., bulletproof glass, reinforced ballistic doors, a “safe room,” and high concrete barriers surrounding the buildings. It also lacked an adequate supply of trained security personnel. According to Congressman Darrell Issa, the Obama administration intentionally withdrew security personnel and equipment from the mission in Benghazi for political reasons, so as to “conve[y] the impression that the situation in Libya was getting better [i.e., safer], not worse.”
In March 2011, American diplomat Christopher Stevens was stationed in Benghazi as the American liaison to Libya’s “opposition” rebels—among whom were many al Qaeda-affiliated jihadists—who were fighting to topple the longstanding regime of President Muammar Qaddafi. Ambassador Stevens’ task was to help coordinate covert U.S. assistance to these rebels. In short, the Obama administration elected to aid and abet individuals and groups that were allied ideologically and tactically with al Qaeda.
Following Qaddafi’s fall from power in the summer of 2011, Ambassador Stevens was tasked with finding and securing the vast caches of powerful armaments which the Libyan dictator had amassed during his long reign. In turn, Stevens facilitated the transfer of these arms to the “opposition” rebels in Syria who were trying to topple yet another Arab dictator—Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. As in Libya, the rebels in Syria were likewise known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups. So once again, the Obama administration was willfully helping the cause of al Qaeda and its affiliates. In addition to facilitating arms transfers, Stevens’ duties also included the recruitment of Islamic jihadists from Libya and elsewhere in North Africa who were willing to personally go into combat against the Assad regime in Syria. The U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi served as a headquarters from which all the aforementioned activities could be coordinated with officials and diplomats from such countries as Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar.
As 2012 progressed, violent jihadist activity became increasingly commonplace in Benghazi and elsewhere throughout Libya and North Africa. At or near the U.S. mission in Benghazi, for instance, there were many acts of terrorism featuring the use of guns, improvised explosive devices, hand grenades, rocket-propelled grenades, and car-bombs, to say nothing of the explicit threats against Americans issued by known terrorists like al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri. As a result of such developments, Ambassador Stevens and others at the U.S. mission in Benghazi repeatedly asked the Obama administration for increased security provisions during 2012, but these requests were invariably denied or ignored.
Then, on the night of September 11, 2012, the U.S. mission in Benghazi was attacked by a large group of heavily armed terrorists. Over the ensuing 7 hours, Americans stationed at the diplomatic mission and at the nearby CIA annex issued 3 urgent requests for military back-up, all of which were denied by the Obama administration. By the time the violence was over, 4 Americans were dead: Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith, and two former Navy SEALS, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, who fought valiantly (but unsuccessfully) to drive away the attackers.
In the wake of the violence, the Obama administration immediately and persistently characterized what had occurred in Benghazi not as an act of terrorism, but as a spontaneous, unplanned uprising that just happened, coincidentally, to take place on the anniversary of 9/11. Moreover, the administration portrayed the attack as an event that had evolved from what began as a low-level protest against an obscure YouTube video that disparaged Muslims and their faith. In reality, however, by this time U.S. intelligence agencies had already gained more than enough evidence to conclude unequivocally that the attack on the mission in Benghazi was a planned terrorist incident, not a spontaneous act carried out in reaction to a video. Indeed, the video had nothing whatsoever to do with the attack.
Given these realities, it is likely that the Obama administration’s post-September 11 actions were aimed at drawing public attention away from a number of highly important facts:
§ the U.S. mission in Benghazi had never adopted adequate security measures;
§ the administration had ignored dozens of warning signs about growing Islamic extremism and jihadism in the region over a period of more than 6 months;
§ the administration, for political reasons, had ignored or denied repeated requests for extra security by American diplomats stationed in Benghazi;
§ the administration had failed to beef up security even for the anniversary of 9/11, a date of obvious significance to terrorists;
§ the administration, fully cognizant of what was happening on the ground during the September 11 attacks in Benghazi, nonetheless denied multiple calls for help by Americans who were stationed there;
§ the administration had been lying when, throughout the presidential election season, it relentlessly advanced the notion that “al Qaeda is on the run” and Islamic terrorism was in decline thanks to President Obama’s policies; and perhaps most significantly,
§ throughout 2011 and 2012 the administration had been lending its assistance to jihadists affiliated with al Qaeda, supposedly the organization that represented the prime focus of Obama’s anti-terrorism efforts; moreover, some of those same jihadists had personally fought against U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.

In an email sent from Western Center for Journalism Floyd Brown draws from some reputable sources highly criticizes the Accountability Review Board’s (ARB) report on Benghazigate (No accountability for those held accountable).
Here are some highlights of Brown’s criticism (not comprehensive because the entire essay needs to be read):
· The Benghazi Massacre is more than Foreign Policy ineptitude
· Benghazigate involves government officials at the highest levels, al-Qaeda operatives, radical jihadists, the Muslim Brotherhood and even George Soros.
· Blaming YouTube video as the reason for Massacre was smoke and mirrors
· ARB lead investigator Thomas Pickering is on the Board of Soros’ International Crisis Group
· The Benghazi Consulate was not a Consulate, rather it was a meeting place to discuss sending arms to al Qaeda affiliates of Libya (rebel victors against Qaddafi) and to al Qaeda affiliates of the Syrian rebels fighting the Bashar Assad dictatorship.
· Nations represented at meeting: USA, Libya, Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar
· And More
An interesting question that Brown explores: “Is Benghazi-Gate A Criminal Conspiracy That Can Bring The Obama Regime Down?”
Remember Watergate? President Nixon’s Watergate Cover-up was an obvious illegal use of government resources to spy on George McGovern’s campaign in 1972. Nixon’s paranoia led to the Watergate break-in which politically was the stupidest decision of Nixon’s career. Nixon slaughtered McGovern in 1972.
Nixon and the Mainstream Media (MSM) hated each other. When Nixon’s Administration got caught with its hand in the cookie jar the MSM screamed often and long until Congress set up hearings in the Senate.
There will be no MSM expose asking questions about
possible/probable Obama Administration illegalities. The MSM will go to great lengths to shield the Leftist-in-Chief from illegal dirt. Unless some brave person is able to make the smoking gun connection to a government cover-up Obama will slide through the wonderland mirror unscathed.
People like Floyd Brown’s Western Center for Journalism is the only hope of catching the Obama Administration with its hand in the cookie jar. So keep the pressure coming.
Obama Armed Al-Qaeda Terrorists

“[T]he official report by the U.S. government’s Accountability Review Board [ARB] about the attack on the U.S. compound in the Libyan city of Benghazi ignored the most explosive ‘Beghazigate’ scandals: the Obama administration’s lawless arming of jihadists in Libya and Syria….” -The New American
A shocking number of investigative reporters are coming to the same horrifying conclusion. Benghazi-gate is NOT just about covering up Obama Regime security and foreign-policy ineptitude that directly lead to the murder of four brave Americans on the eve of a presidential election.
Rather… leaving these Americans to die horrible deaths was potentially part of a much larger, AND CRIMINAL, cover-up… an attempt to conceal what The New American calls; “the Obama administration’s full role in helping violent Jihadists [and] self-styled al Qaeda terrorists” … a cover-up that involves government officials at the highest levels, al-Qaeda operatives, radical jihadists, the Muslim Brotherhood and even George Soros.
Barack Obama may think that a handful of insignificant State Department resignations and the rigged results of a bogus “independent investigation” (that was launched to whitewash this growing scandal) are going to make Benghazi-gate go away, but he’s wrong… because we’re not going to let him get away with it.
How Is George Soros Connected To This Emerging Scandal?
Everyone with a pulse already knows that the Obama Regime promoted an outrageously false story that anger over an obscure YouTube video fueled the Benghazi attack, but few know that the so-called Accountability Review Board investigation was quite possibly another attempt to cover-up the Obama Regime’s treasonous role in aiding America’s enemies abroad.
Political commentator Dick Morris says that “the blue ribbon commission charged with investigating the attack… perpetuates a cover-up by distracting attention from the main issue to side matters.” In other words, both the false YouTube narrative and the so-called “independent investigation” of this cover-up may actually be part of a much larger cover-up.
Where there is smoke, there is fire. Investigative journalist Aaron Klein with WND tells us: “The panel’s lead investigator into the Benghazi attack, former Ambassador Thomas Pickering, has largely unreported ties to the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa.”
Klein goes on to say: “Pickering serves on the small board of the International Crisis Group, or ICG” and “Billionaire activist George Soros is on ICG’s executive board.” Klein adds: “ICG itself has long petitioned for talks with Hamas as well as normalized relations with the Muslim Brotherhood.”
Pickering’s credentials beg the question: Why would a man with such long-standing ties to radical Islam and globalist America-haters like George Soros be tapped to head an “independent investigation” into Benghazi-gate.
Should we be shocked that the “blue ribbon commission’s” findings were nothing more than a complete and total whitewash? The obvious answer to the second question isn’t no … it’s hell no.
Morris adds that “there will be a temptation on Capitol Hill to drop the inquiry after the Hillary-less hearing. We must not let them do so. Don’t let her off the hook.”
Something Stinks And The Stench Leads To 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
But Pickering simply isn’t on the board of the Soros-funded ICG. According to Wikipedia, he’s the co-chairman and directly oversees the ICG’s international actions.
Pickering is also a member of the Council of Foreign Relations and serves on the board of the American Iranian Council, an organization devoted to the “normalization” of relations between Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s Iran and America.
When it comes to the previously posed question: Why would a man with such long-standing ties to radical Islam and globalist America-haters like George Soros be tapped to head an “independent investigation” into Benghazi-gate; political commentator Andrew Malcolm, in Investors Business Daily (IBD) draws the following conclusion.
Malcolm states: “The report from the Accountability Review Board…is only one tiny piece of a vast bureaucratic ballet that has evolved in Washington.”
The New American, referring to Malcolm’s IBD article, adds: “The purpose, he [Malcolm] said, is to shift people’s attention away from real scandals using what essentially amounts to deceitful PR tactics, and the establishment press often plays along. ‘It’s an amazingly sophisticated and bipartisan procedure that looks sound to naive eyes,’ Malcolm continued. ‘It’s built upon powerful self-interest and savvy strategic communications that manages and manipulates information and the timing of its release to minimize damage to incumbents and to dampen ongoing media interest in pursuing an embarrassing matter further.’”
And what are the “real scandals?” For starters, Klein tells us that the Benghazi Consulate “was not a consulate.”
He adds: “According to Middle East security officials I talked to, this was a major meeting point — I would say the central meeting point — for the American diplomats… to meet with officials of Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar, about supplying the opposition in Syria and Libya. Well, who is the opposition? In Libya, the opposition openly included jihadists, included al-Qaeda elements. In Syria, right now, the al-Qaeda elements are leading the opposition….”
Is the arming of al-Qaeda elements and radical jihadists what Obama was talking about when he said “I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” There’s only one way to find out. Congress must act to get at the truth… no dog-and-pony shows that end in more whitewashes… the American people deserve facts.
Here Are Some Real Questions.
It’s clear that we’re confronted with a scandal that goes beyond simple incompetence that resulted in the deaths of brave Americans and an incompetent attempt to deflect blame away from that incompetence prior to an election.
We may be dealing with something more sinister and the following questions, posed in an article in The New American, go to the heart of the matter.
**What was the Obama administration’s full role in helping violent Jihadists, self-styled al Qaeda terrorists, and Western-backed “revolutionaries” take over Libya in the first place?
**Did that half-baked scheme to arm Jihadist leaders, who as the report acknowledges had previously fought U.S. troops in Iraq, contribute to the attack, as countless experts and officials have suggested?
**What was actually going on at the compound in Benghazi, which as the report states, was never a “consulate” despite establishment media claims?
**Was Ambassador Stevens recruiting and arming Jihadists and terrorists to wage war on the Syrian regime after what Obama called the “success” in Libya, as a growing body of credible evidence suggests?
**Why did the administration claim for so long that the attack was just a “protest” over a YouTube video gone awry, even when it knew definitively that was not the case?
**Was the lack of security at the compound a political ploy to conceal the extent of the lawlessness and utter chaos left in the wake of Obama’s unconstitutional “regime change” war on Libya, as even members of Congress have alleged?
According to the ARB report: “Systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”
Give us a break. The ARB report is an insult to anyone possessing more intelligence than God gave the common dog. It doesn’t even acknowledge the important questions and the American people deserve to have those question asked… and answered… by our elected officials.
Is Benghazi-Gate A Criminal Conspiracy That Can Bring The Obama Regime Down?
The New American: “These revelations are not at all shocking to those who are familiar with the Obama administration’s record of support for virulently anti-American Islamists in Libya, including those closely allied with al-Qaeda. … the Obama administration’s ‘Arab Spring’ strategy infamously embraced terrorist ‘Emir’ Abdelhakim Belhadj and his Libyan Islamic Fighting Group [LIFG].”
The New American adds: “The Libyan Islamic Fighting Group is listed by our National Counterterrorism Center and the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Counterterrorism as a ‘Designated Foreign Terrorist Organization.’ The United Nations Security Council likewise lists the LIFG as an al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group. Nevertheless, Abdelhakim Belhadj and the LIFG received blessings (and aid) from the Obama administration. After Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, Belhadj was installed as the chief of the Military Council in the new U.S.-backed ‘rebel’ regime in Tripoli. And Belhadj is only one of several notorious terrorists aided by the United States in our ‘humanitarian intervention’ in Libya.”
And The New American concludes: “According to analysts, it appears that the main purpose of the report was to deflect criticism and potentially even criminal responsibility away from President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton… and others.”
Is anyone else saying that the Obama Regime is aiding anti-American terrorists? Retired Admiral James A. Lyons leveled the following charge almost two months ago in a Washington Times opinion editorial:
“We now know why Ambassador Christopher Stevens had to be in Benghazi the night of 9/11 to meet a Turkish representative, even though he feared for his safety. According to various reports, one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 — portable SAMs — to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria….”
Syndicated columnist and conservative author Diana West says: “The red flags didn’t go up over this so-called investigation for nothing. The White House isn’t just whitewashed in the report, it’s whited-out.”
And Steve Elson, an ex-Navy SEAL, says that the “Benghazi response — or, more accurately, Obama’s failure to respond in Benghazi” is “immoral and treasonous.”
Make no mistake. Barack Hussein Obama desperately wants this scandal to go away because he knows that it can topple his illegitimate occupation of the Oval Office, and he’s willing to go any lengths to get bury it. We can’t let him get away with it.

The murder of Ambassador Stevens and three other American officials in Benghazi, Libya is indeed beginning to sound like a reprehensible scandal of lies, deceit and abandonment to terrorism that we can and should call Benghazigate.
It seems like every day snippets of information are released revealing the true picture of what happened in Benghazi. It has been revealed that the State Department knew within two hours the attack was planned and organized by terrorists AND that they knew who the terrorists were – Ansar al-Sharia which is an al Qaeda connected Islamic Terrorist group.
So here is the picture: the State Department and White House knew this was a terrorist attack yet the White House, Secretary of State Clinton and U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice all laid the blame for the deaths of Americans in Benghazi to a badly made movie trailer entitled “Innocence of Muslims”. If you had seen this trailer you would understand this movie had quality of garage production mocking Mohammed. Would Muslims be offended? Absolutely! Would Muslims across the Islamic world spontaneously riot on the anniversary of 9/11 attacking American Embassies because of a movie trailer of dubious quality that had been out for months? NO! Spontaneity indicates no planning.
Fox News Video: When will We Know the Truth about Benghazi Attack?
The reality is there was nothing spontaneous about any of the riot attacks on American Embassies in the Islamic world. They were all organized by Islamic Terrorists or purist Islamic organizations (aka Radical Islam or Islamism) to coordinate with the Islamic attack on American soil on 9/11. In Libya’s case the riot was incited as a ruse to a pre-planned attack on the Benghazi Consulate with the intention to kill the inhabitants. The only thing I wonder about is if the Ansar al-Sharia terrorists knew that Ambassador Chris Stevens was there on that day. I wonder this because it has been proven that Ambassador Stevens had asked for more security because of the suspicion of an imminent terrorist attack.
The response to the request was to ignore it. That means the State Department ignored the threat or was following Obama guidelines to beef up a military presence at the Libyan Embassy and Consulate. Why would such a request be ignored by the Obama Administration? My guess is that at the time it was more of a priority to be non-aggressive to the Muslim world than it was to protect Americans on diplomatic soil considered American because maintaining a politically correct image to anti-war Leftist-Democratic Party constituents in an election year was more important.
The attitude of trying to paint Romney a warmonger by Obama in the last debate brings me to this conclusion. If Romney would have gone after Obama’s failure at Benghazigate President Obama was obviously prepared to paint a picture that he was the man of international peace and that Romney would be a warmonger President if elected. I am certain it would yet another blame Bush moment. Obama would deceitfully paint the picture Bush started unnecessary wars and perpetuated them into long years, then Obama would come and deliver America from a decade’s long war began by Bush Republicans. Obama would accuse Romney of perpetuating the Bush legacy of war.
As if it was wrong for President Bush go after the foreigners that attacked Americans on American soil, right? AGAIN wrong! America should seek to destroy Islamic terrorists globally that might be a threat to Americans at home or Americans travelling abroad. To do anything else is just idiotic appeasement. The foreign policy of appeasement is just a projection of weakness that incites violence against the appeasers.
How wise a man is Mitt Romney? Wise enough to know that Obama is a master manipulating deceiver! Obama prepared for the last debate to confront his Benghazigate lies by deflecting that Romney was a warmonger. Romney was ready and thus did allow the deceiver-President to manipulate Romney’s image.
Lara Logan is a news correspondent for CBS News’ 60 Minutes. She was a keynote speaker at Chicago luncheon of big dogs in “government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas.”
Her speech was a warning that Islamic Terrorism is on the rise rather than the wane as the Obama Administration would have us believe. The BHO propaganda of course is spewing because Obama wants to look like the guy that is ending a decade long war that has been fought in Afghanistan and Iraq began by Republican President George W. Bush because Islamic purists declared war on the USA by attacking the Twin Towers on American soil.
The article I am cross posting is a stark warning of America’s future. This future may hog tie America’s military to respond because BHO’s propaganda of a waning Islamic Terrorist threat has been an excuse to gut America’s military budget.
You should be curious why Logan – a correspondent from a rather Liberal news show – is warning that Islamic Terrorism is far from done and far from unable to strike out the USA. Logan’s politics may have changed on military policy because she was raped at Tahrir Square in Cairo, Egypt covering Hosni Mubarak being deposed by Islamist incitement of Egypt’s Muslim populace. Logan has a good reason to distrust the Muslim mind so check out her warning in Chicago.

Reporter Lara Logan brings ominous news from Middle East
By LAURA WASHINGTON
October 7, 2012 4:04PM
Updated: October 9, 2012 8:02AM
This was no ordinary rubber chicken affair. That was my reaction to the extraordinary keynoter at Tuesday’s Better Government Association annual luncheon.
Lara Logan, a correspondent for CBS’ “60 Minutes,” delivered a provocative speech to about 1,100 influentials from government, politics, media, and the legal and corporate arenas. Such downtown gatherings are a regular on Chicago’s networking circuit. (I am a member of the BGA’s Civic Leadership Committee, and the Chicago Sun-Times was a sponsor).
Her ominous and frightening message was gleaned from years of covering our wars in the Middle East. She arrived in Chicago on the heels of her Sept. 30 report, “The Longest War.” It examined the Afghanistan conflict and exposed the perils that still confront America, 11 years after 9/11.
Eleven years later, “they” still hate us, now more than ever, Logan told the crowd. The Taliban and al-Qaida have not been vanquished, she added. They’re coming back.
“I chose this subject because, one, I can’t stand, that there is a major lie being propagated . . .” Logan declared in her native South African accent.
The lie is that America’s military might has tamed the Taliban.
“There is this narrative coming out of Washington for the last two years,” Logan said. It is driven in part by “Taliban apologists,” who claim “they are just the poor moderate, gentler, kinder Taliban,” she added sarcastically. “It’s such nonsense!”
Logan stepped way out of the “objective,” journalistic role. The audience was riveted as she told of plowing through reams of documents, and interviewing John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan; Afghan President Hamid Karzai, and a Taliban commander trained by al-Qaida. The Taliban and al-Qaida are teaming up and recruiting new terrorists to do us deadly harm, she reports.
She made a passionate case that our government is downplaying the strength of our enemies in Afghanistan and Pakistan, as a rationale of getting us out of the longest war. We have been lulled into believing that the perils are in the past: “You’re not listening to what the people who are fighting you say about this fight. In your arrogance, you think you write the script.”
Our enemies are writing the story, she suggests, and there’s no happy ending for us.
As a journalist, I was queasy. Reporters should tell the story, not be the story. As an American, I was frightened.
Logan even called for retribution for the recent terrorist killings of Christopher Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three other officials. The event is a harbinger of our vulnerability, she said. Logan hopes that America will “exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil. That its ambassadors will not be murdered, and that the United States will not stand by and do nothing about it.”
In the “good old days,” reporters did not advocate, crusade or call for revenge.
In these “new” days in a post-9/11 world, perhaps we need more reporters who are willing to break the rules.

Is violent Islamic extremism at war with us?
The Obama Administration’s public answer, featured in our new advertisement, was NO, they are NOT at war with us. Click here to watch our new advertisement, “At War?” and share with as many people as possible that Obama refuses to recognize that our enemies are at war with us!
Obama STILL hasn’t personally called the recent attack on our Libyan consulate a terrorist attack, but this should be no surprise, as our advertisement points out that he refused to call terrorist Carlos Bledsoe’s attack that killed Army Private Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas a terrorist attack. He called it a criminal act.
How can we defeat our enemies if we don’t recognize them for who they are and why they want to destroy us?
Now in the course of preparing to post the “At War?” message which I highly hope all participate I ran into a Website called Losing Our Sons: An American Tragedy. This is a title of movie protesting the Obama Administration and the U.S. Army not providing Purple Hearts for American soldiers that have died on American soil in the line of duty under Islamic Terrorism because of the Left Wing fear that it is politically incorrect that tragedies like what happened at the Ft Hood Massacre and a recruiting office in Arkansas were acts of war by Islamic terrorists.
This all goes to Obama’s refusal to admit America is at war with Radical Islam because God forbid that we non-Muslims of America (of whom which a majority call themselves Christians) say we are at war with a religion that openly hates Jews, Christians AND Americans.
Frankly friends that is just plain stupid. I pray American voters wake-up to just how much stupidity exists to not understand that Radical Muslims consider themselves at war with America.
Trailer to Losing Our Sons:
Losing Our Sons is a documentary and here is the descriptive summary:
A searing true story from America’s heartland, Losing Our Sons tells of two American families whose lives intersected through a shattering act of violence. Melvin Bledsoe, a small business owner in Memphis, watched with pride as his son Carlos went to Tennessee State University in Nashville to better his life through education. Daris Long, an ex-Marine, felt honored that his son, Andy, chose to follow in his footsteps by joining the military. But when Carlos Bledsoe murdered Andy Long in Little Rock, Arkansas, both fathers are forced to confront a new kind of American nightmare. As Melvin traced the trail that led Carlos from Nashville to Yemen and then to Little Rock, Daris confronted an American government that seems to be in denial about what happened to his son. This powerful documentary provides a moment of clarity for Americans who care about their families and their country’s future.

On June 1, 2009, Private William “Andy” Long was killed and Private Quinton Ezeagwula was wounded outside a Little Rock Army recruitment center in a terror attack. It was the first Al Qaeda murder on US soil since 9/11. Andy’s killer, Carlos Bledsoe, who changed his name to Abdulhakim Mohammed when he converted to Islam, admitted to targeting US soldiers as part of what he termed his jihad.
Andy and Quinton were denied the Purple Heart award by the U.S Army because of “insufficient evidence”. The Justice Department decided not to bring federal terrorism charges and classified Andy’s murder as a street crime.
We call upon the U.S. Army to recognize the sacrifice made by Andy Long and Quinton Ezeagwula and award them the Purple Heart.

Report: Obama Administration Removed 9/11 Threat Memo From Website After Libya Attack
October 1, 2012 9:03 am ET
A new report alleges that the State Department removed from its website a memo from Sept. 6 that advised U.S. personnel overseas that there was no credible threat of a terror attack to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11.
The memo was reportedly scrubbed from the website by the State Department’s Overseas Security Advisory Council sometime after the Libya consulate attack.
Chris Horner, author of “Liberal War On Transparency,” joined Steve Doocy on Fox and Friends to discuss the bombshell allegation. He said the move is not surprising, given what he calls the Obama administration’s lack of transparency over the last four years.
“They’re not into transparency beyond it being a talking point. By destroying records, generally, and I’ve shown there is a cyber bonfire going on in this administration, they’re covering up,” said Horner, who pointed out that the Obama administration has moved increasingly toward using private email instead of government accounts.
