Muslim Comment Returns me to Benghazi


Benghazi_Four_Never_Forget

Every once in a while I get comments from posts many years in the past that are usually spam marketing promotions. I usually delete the spam comments when my notifications alert me they have arrived. However on 2/15/15 I received a comment from a person identifying himself as tarek smith (probably a pseudonym) to the March 10, 2011 post entitled “What Might Happen to Libya’s Weapons Cache?” on my NCCR blog.

 

In looking back at the 2011 post I realized that the thoughts were a precursor to the eventual Benghazi slaughter of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Information Officer Sean Smith, and Navy Seals Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.

 

As the title suggests the relatively short post based on a STRATFOR analysis involved wondering what happened to Muammar Gaddafi’s weapons cache after the various Libyan rebel militias managed enough unity to defeat and execute old the Muslim dictator/supporter of anti-Israel/anti-American terrorism. Keep in mind this is before the Benghazigate suspicions that Obama was illegally sending that weapons cache to Syrian rebels fighting Bashar Assad. If that is indeed what happened to the weapons cache it is likely that much of those weapons fell into the hands of al Qaeda supported Jabhat al-Nusra (JN – 12/2014 PDF) or ISIS terrorists as well (See Also HERE).

 

Tareq’s comment is translated by Google Translate from Arabic text. Go to the NCCR comment with the date-link below to view that Arabic text. Google Translate’s translation is in rather broken English. If one has a better translation feel free to post it in the comment section. Some of the words Google couldn’t figure out are in transliterated English text.

 

 The reason the comment piqued my interest, after I took the time to try to decipher it, is that Tarek seems to be calling on all good Muslim bros to unite against the Radical Islamists inserting politics as much as the Islamic religion. Or if my guess is incorrect Tarek may be calling the government the West seems to be supporting a treasonous entity and to support the Islamists.

 

From the links I looked at below, it seems the West is supporting the government located in Tobruk while the more radical Islamic militias are supporting a government established in Tripoli.

 

If you have read my past posts you probably realize I am what Leftists and Muslim apologists would label an Islamophobe. The reason for that is I am just down right against anything Islamic. Islam is Islam rather it is radical or the so-called moderate. Both so-called camps view the Quran as absolute truth and place a lot of stock in the Hadith and Sira which are not quite as absolute as a the Quran but many Muslims to one degree or the other find quite authoritative.

 

Due to this Muslim love for their Islamic revered writings (NOT holy to me) Islam is an evil religion vis-à-vis Christianity or Judaism for that matter. The Quran specifically denigrates the Divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, rejects the Crucifixion, rejects the essential Resurrection that Christians believe can restore humanity to God Almighty and reject Christian mainstay orthodoxy such as the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit are ONE God expressed in three persons. The Quran twists and fabricates the Holy Scripture of the Old Testament (Jewish Tanakh and thus the first five books of Moses Christians call the Pentateuch and Jews call the Torah) AND the New Testament. This Quran twisting and fabricating eliminates Islam as part of the Abrahamic religions (as far as I’m concerned) and only leaves Judeo-Christianity. If that makes me an Islamophobe I embrace the term. I just don’t embrace the literal meaning of the term which would go something like an unnatural fear of Islam. I don’t have an unnatural fear, rather I have a theological loathing of Islam. Even as much as I loathe Islam I work very hard to take a ‘What Would Jesus Do?’ (WWJD) mentality toward that theopolitical ideology. Most of the time I am successful with WWJD but admittedly there are moments that the loathing steps over the line. God have mercy on me.

Benghazi: The Cover-up of the Cover-up

Obama and Clinton Lied, Americans Died

 

By Mark Alexander

Apr. 30, 2014

The Patriot Post

 

It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him. This falsehood of the tongue leads to that of the heart, and in time depraves all its good disposition.” –Thomas Jefferson (1785)

 

One year ago, The Patriot Post published an investigative piece identifying the key players who altered the Benghazi talking points. It was a brazen charade to provide Barack Hussein Obama political cover just ahead of the 2012 presidential election.

 

A foundational pillar of Obama’s re-election campaign was promoting the myth that he was a great statesman, having killed Osama bin Laden and having made the nation and world safe from Islamic terror groups like al-Qa’ida.

 

However, on September 11, 2012, just eight weeks before the presidential election, a highly organized terrorist attack claimed the lives of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans: Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty. This brazen attack threatened to derail Obama’s muscular foreign policy façade, so his White House spin machine – funded by taxpayers and not campaign donations – set about to alter the Benghazi talking points. In doing so, they hoped to provide Obama with vital political cover, thereby ensuring that the debacle didn’t tip the balance in a very tight presidential race.

 

We wrote then, “State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland warned that the original CIA talking points ‘could be abused by members [of Congress] to beat up the State Department for not paying attention to warnings, so why would we want to feed that?’ We believe that Nuland and Ben Rhodes, who is Assistant to the President and Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting, were the key conspirators in the talking point alterations, though the Rhodes alterations were certainly signed off by someone much further up the White House chain of command. If sufficient evidence is ever uncovered to implicate Rhodes and Nuland, they will likely become Obama’s ‘cutouts,’ who will be encouraged to ‘fall on their swords’ in order to provide Obama plausible deniability.”

 

We also wrote, “The primary CIA architect of the politically motivated alteration of the Benghazi narrative was undoubtedly then-CIA Deputy Director, Michael J. Morell, who has deep ties to former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton and is vying for a key post in her administration if she is victorious in 2016. Morell claims that the talking points were sent to the White House for informational purposes only, and nothing was ‘produced with any political agenda in mind.’ But it is clear from our sources, that Morell, Nuland and Rhodes all had a hand in altering the talking points with the specific objective of providing political cover for Obama and Clinton.”

 

This week, the assertions in our analysis last year have been vindicated.

On Tuesday, as a result of a lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, Obama White House staff released a briefing email, which exposes the conspiracy to alter the Benghazi talking points ahead of scheduled media appearances by Obama’s UN Ambassador Susan Rice, during which she asserted that “protests over an Internet video” resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and his security personnel – that it was not a highly organized act of Islamist terrorism.

 

On September 14, 2012, three days after the Benghazi attack (despite the fact that CIA operatives on the ground said the attack had nothing to do with an Internet video, a claim that was clear to all concerned), Ben Rhodes drafted and sent a key talking points memo on Benghazi to top White House officials including Press Secretary Jay Carney, Deputy Press Secretary Joshua Earnest, then-White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer, then-White House Deputy Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri, then-National Security Council Director of Communications Erin Pelton, Special Assistant to the Press Secretary Howli Ledbetter, and then-White House Senior Advisor and political strategist Davie Plouffe.

 

That email was entitled “PREP CALL with Susan,” as in Susan Rice.

 

The memo noted the “Goal” was to “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy,” and instructs the recipients to portray Obama as “steady and statesmanlike” and to “reinforce the President and Administration’s strength and steadiness in dealing with difficult challenges.”

 

Though she clearly knew this was not the truth, Rice repeated this assertion in five TV news interviews in one day: “What happened this week in Benghazi was a result, a direct result, of a heinous and offensive video….”

 

There are two key questions this White House fabrication raises.

 

First, who provided and signed off on Ben Rhodes’ Benghazi talking point lies to protect Obama’s re-election campaign?

 

Second, who authorized the cover-up of Rhodes’ cover-up by redacting the emails sent to congressional investigators in order to conceal the fact that the Benghazi lies originated in the White House?

In retrospect, for more context of the gravity of this cover-up, let’s review what has been said to advance the Obama administration cover-up.

 

Three days after the attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stood in front of the flag-draped caskets of four dead Americans and asserted, “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that, because it is senseless and totally unacceptable.” Clinton shamelessly assured Charles Woods, the father of slain former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, “We will make sure the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”

 

Two weeks after the Benghazi attack, Obama himself told the UN General Assembly, “That is what we saw play out in the last two weeks, as a crude and disgusting video sparked outrage throughout the Muslim world.”

 

In November 2012, just before the election, and seven weeks after receiving Rhodes’ talking points, Jay Carney declared, “It has been repeatedly said by some of the critics on this issue that the White House provided talking points and that has been categorically refuted not just by us but by the intelligence community and yet it is still periodically said on the air, um, and it’s just wrong. The White House involvement and any changes made to the so-called talking points was extremely minimal and non-substantive.”

 

Carney also insisted, “The unrest around the region has been in response to this video. We were not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent.”

 

In January 2013, responding to Senate Foreign Relations Committee questions about the altered talking points, Clinton rebutted in anger, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”

 

The difference, of course, is that we know she and Obama were lying.

 

In May 2013, Obama said, “The whole issue of this, uh, of talking points frankly throughout this process has been a sideshow.”

 

That month, Carney insisted again, “The only edits made here at the White House were stylistic and non-substantive. They corrected the description of the building, or the facility in Benghazi, from consulate to diplomatic facility and the like.”

 

Hillary Clinton’s replacement as Secretary of State, John Kerry, who as you recall launched Obama into the national limelight by featuring him as the keynote speaker at the 2004 Democrat Convention, lamented, “I hate to see it turned into a pure, prolonged, political process that really doesn’t tell us anything new about the facts.”

 

Clearly it is Obama who fabricated this lie and turned it “into a pure, prolonged, political process.”

 

As late as February of this year, Susan Rice insisted, “that information, uh, turned out in some respects not to be 100% correct, but the notion that somehow I, or anyone else in the administration, misled the American people, is patently false and I think that’s been amply demonstrated.”

 

Clearly it was not “100% correct” but, rather, 100% fabricated.

 

Let me now pose a third question about this White House fabrication: Does anyone believe that Barack Obama was not fully aware of the first cover-up, and then the cover-up of that cover-up?

 

Obama mastered the “Art of the BIG Lie” long before he had presidential aspirations, but the Benghazi cover-up, and the subsequent cover-up of that cover-up, is a terrible affront to the memory of four dead Americans and a grievous insult to their friends and families.

 

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton notes, “Now we know the Obama White House’s chief concern about the Benghazi attack was making sure that President Obama looked good.”

 

According to Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Rhodes’ email is “a smoking gun proving beyond any doubt that the story told by the administration about Benghazi was politically motivated and fabricated.” That assessment is now echoed by other Republicans.

 

So, is there enough journalistic integrity remaining in the Leftmedia to call Obama out on this conspiracy and follow the chain of command to the top? Probably not – I suspect they will just yawn and move on. The MSM has substituted style for substance, and most of their consumers have swallowed the bait.

For the record, in 1972, Richard Nixon did not know about the politically-motivated plan to break into DNC headquarters at the Watergate. However, once the burglary plan pointed toward White House staff, Nixon DID know about White House staff efforts to fabricate political cover so it would not undermine Nixon’s 1972 re-election campaign. Notably, that political cover did not involve the murder of a U.S. Ambassador and three other Americans. The question now, as Sen. Howard Baker famously asked during the Senate Watergate investigation two years after the break-in: “What did the President know and when did he know it?” When that question was answered, Nixon had the decency to resign rather than put the nation through an impeachment trial.

 

Investigative journalists with The Washington Post played a key role in exposing that White House cover-up to protect Nixon in advance of his re-election campaign. Where are they today?

 

And finally, a couple of footnotes.

 

First, The Washington Post, in a profile on Ben Rhodes, described him as a “straight shooter.”

 

In that profile, Rhodes told the Post, “I very much wanted to be a fiction writer.”

Apparently, he became just that.

 

Rhodes is the author of Obama’s opening apology tour speeches in Berlin and to the Muslim world in Cairo. He also wrote Obama’s Afghanistan retreat speech and his acceptance speech for that utterly unearned Nobel Peace Prize.

 

And second, a month before the 2012 election and amid the presidential candidate debates, we sent our “Grassroots Memo to Mitt Romney” to his campaign communications director in order to provide critical grassroots perspective on the issues WE needed Romney to address.

 

Key among the issues we insisted he should address in the last debate, we wrote, “Some of the 24-hour news recyclers are asking question about the Benghazi, Libya attack, but have yet to ask the right questions. … Obama and his key administrators insisted that protests over a web video led to attack in Libya, knowing full well that it was actually a well-executed terrorist assault. This obfuscation clearly was, and remains, a political calculation in advance of his re-election, to sustain the façade that Obama is a ‘statesman’ and wise Commander in Chief.”

 

We know Romney’s communications director received our memo, and she and her staff summarily ignored it – and the rest, as they say, is history.

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)

Flag Draped Coffins

Smith Facebook Notes

 

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’

HR 36 – Benghazigate – Investigate It


Rep. Frank Wolfe (R-VA)

Rep. Frank Wolfe (R-VA)

© February 5, 2013

 

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 Chris Stevens tortured, sodomized and killedhate 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!

It’s time America got answers!

Please sign our letter to Congress calling for a thorough congressional investigation of Benghazi!

Benghazigate

 

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?

Benghazi, Senate Hearings and Hillary Clinton

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

 

Determine The Networks

Alert Sent: January 23, 2013 2:03 PM

 

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

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.

SlantRight Thoughts on ‘McCain, Graham, Rice Will Meet – An Apology Is Owed’


Benghazi Liars

By John R. Houk

© November 27, 2012

 

Burr Deming is my Liberal friend (no I did not choke those words – Burr is a Christian man) in which obvious reigns true; i.e. we rarely agree on a point of view.

 

Burr is taking the view that Susan Rice can be excused for lying to the Senate oversight committees and the American Public about what the cause actually was for the Benghazigate murder and atrocities to a diplomatically protected Ambassador and three other Americans.

 

The liberal logic runs that Republicans are to blame because they voted to decrease Embassy security. Let’s never mind that Obama is slashing the military budget to unconscionable lows for the security of America. Never mind that regardless of Embassy security cuts it was probably a compromise to not cut the military budget even further. Never mind that a budget cut does not mean the Obama Administration through the State Department leaves an American Ambassador unprotected in a volatile nation that had glaring evidence of al Qaeda activity. Never mind that was security that was told to hold on help for Ambassador Stevens and a couple of ex-Navy SEALs dispatched themselves to aid Stevens after hearing no help was forth coming. Never mind that took the State Department spin about an insignificant anti-Muslim movie that was made on the scale of garage home videos and that only a trailer was posted on Youtube.

 

Yes, my fellow Conservatives it is smoke and mirrors to deflect the truth that Susan Rice was the mouthpiece for Obama/Clinton lies to Americans to exonerate their hind quarters for a dishonorable travesty that could have been prevented.

 

That is my two cents. Here is Burr Deming’s nickel that he sent by email that is published by now on the blog Fair and UNbalanced.

Obama Foreign Policy, Muslim Brotherhood and Selling U.S. Soul for Appeasement

 

Tony Newbill

Sent: 10/26/2012 10:24 AM

 

This President’s Foreign Policy is all about appeasing the Muslim Brotherhood and selling our Nation’s Soul to that appeasement Cause and it’s time for Change!!!!!

 

It’s TIME  to expose this Lack of leadership for what it is; viz., the attempt to the assimilation the Western Nations into what is perceived as a Society of Radical Islamists who this President and his Party is afraid. And rather than stand for Individual Liberty Rights they think it would be better to just submit to the Threat of War with these Ideologues and call it a Peace policy!!!

 

Look at the Pattern this President is creating. Every time Obama  makes a Gain in the War of Respect between these Radicals and the USA effort to secure stability, they turn the other way and some Atrocity occurs. Like the SEALs that got wasted [The Conspiracy Theory] after the Bin Ladin raid or this time when these SEALs were chasing down the [chemical] weapons that Qaddafi [The Conspiracy Theory] had and that these radical Islamists wanted. That’s what this is all about, the proof is out there. [Editor: Links in this paragraph provided by John R. Houk]

 

Appeasing the radical Islamists’ desires to draw Blood like pawns in the chess game of Liberty versus Domination is traded back and forth. Enough is enough of this appeasement parade of Foreign Policy!!!!!!

It appears to me that the White House Staff – doing nothing – is unforgivable!!!!

 

These are pictures you will not see in the Obama media. Our US Ambassador to Libya was being dragged through the streets before his death. Here is our American Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, diplomat, father, husband, and American Citizen, being dragged through the streets of Benghazi, and your President does NOTHING! – Except Obama did go to Las Vegas for a fund raiser plus two more afterwards.

To most Americans this is an act of war.  To our President it’s just another act of office violence like Fort Hood. He and the Secretary of State have already apologized and will soon send them another $6.3 Billion in foreign aid. This is as sad as it gets.

 

God bless that brave Ambassador Christopher Stevens, who died after being dragged through the streets by people we put in power.
