The essential guide to Hillary’s high crimes, misdemeanors

Clinton Crime Family

WND has put together some resources to look at Crooked Hillary and her husband Slick Willie. To be honest, the WND resource list is actually a wish list that WND hopes you will purchase items from the WND bookstore; nonetheless it does give you a decent idea about the Clinton Crime Family.


Use the list to Google for your own knowledge or to actually purchase from WND, but which ever path you choose keep the list in mind as the Hillary campaign tries to get voters to believe Donald Trump is more criminal than the Clintons. For all Trump’s questionable business dealings, the only thing he has come close to being indicted for was his Trump University enterprise. The Clintons have been Teflon for decades dodging indictments and investigations, not to mention the legal but quite nefarious decisions like allowing four Americans to be slaughtered by Islamic terrorists in Benghazi. Part of the nefarious Benghazi spin was to blame the terrorism on the so-called spontaneous reaction to an insignificant parody trailer poking fun at the architect of genocide the pseudo-prophet Mohammed. I should say, “Legal to date.” If Trump is elected President, there is a good chance his Justice Department will do what Obama’s Justice Department has allowed to be covered up at least from 2012.

The essential guide to Hillary’s high crimes, misdemeanors
‘We’ve been investigating her longer than the Justice Department’

WND Exclusive

May 14, 2016


Bill and Hillary Clinton

Bill and Hillary Clinton


WASHINGTON – It’s time to arm yourself with the facts about Hillary Clinton, says WND founder and editor Joseph Farah, who has been investigating what he calls “the Clinton crime family” since 1992.


If America gets it wrong in November, he says, say goodbye to America’s liberty and prosperity for a generation.


Farah has worked hard directing his news team to conduct some of the biggest exposés of Hillary’s lies, obfuscation, corruption, character flaws, history and plans for the future on WND and in book form. Now he has assembled what he characterizes as “the essential guide to Hillary’s high crimes and misdemeanors” for those who want the resources to fight back by sharing them with their friends and family members before it’s too late.


Starting with the latest – hot off the presses:


  • “Hillary the Other Woman” is written by Bill Clinton’s oldest, dearest former friend – someone who got to know both “Billy,” as she calls him, and “Chilly,” as she calls her. Dolly Kyle knew Bill from the time she was 11 and he was 12. She maintained a close relationship with him right up till his presidential run in 1992. She describes a couple that is racist to the core, anti-Semitic, motivated exclusively by self-interest and prone to punishing anyone who represents a threat – politically or personally. It’s an amazing but true story and a fascinating read by a serious professional writer and former Clinton insider. It’s available right now only in the WND Superstore in hardcover (autographed too) and in e-book form at Amazon. Take your pick. If you’d like a real bargain, snag the hardcover version for just $4.95 and get a year’s worth of either WND’s digital weekly magazine, WND Weeklyor a year’s worth of WND’s monthly print magazine Whistleblower. (Those offers available only to those not currently subscribing.)


  • “Partners in Crime” by two-time No. 1 New York Times bestselling author Jerome Corsi is up nextThis is the newest peek into how the Clintons operate – in broad daylight – as America’s No. 1 crime family. It exposes the way Bill and Hillary use their “family foundation” to shake down foreign donations for their own personal use, avoiding taxes, under the pretense of “charitable work.” It’s a huge scam and Corsi, as always, has the goods on them. Similarly, you can literally steal this book for $4.95 if you agree to subscribe to either WND Weekly or Whistleblower magazine for a year.


  • The Hillary Clinton Investigative Justice Project is an effort to enlist you in the hard work of exposing this woman. Would you consider giving $10, $50, $100 or more to support investigative reporting into Hillary through what we hope is the end of her political career this November? We’re doing our best. But we need your help. This process is expensive, time-consuming and urgent.






  • Here’s a real treasure in short supply: “Their Lives” by Candice Jackson.This one is worth it for the chapter on Clinton’s rape victim Juanita Broaddrick and how Hillary intimidated her – victimizing her a second time. Only this book contains the shocking details. Again, not yet a subscriber to Whistleblower Magazine or WND Weekly? Get it for just $4.95.






That’s our essential guide to the truth about Hillary.


There’s not much time left to get informed and help inform others.


Use these tools to get the word out – and save America from a fate worse than death.


“We’ve been investigating her longer than the Justice Department,” said Farah. “But time’s running out to get the word out to the public. We’ve documented the case against her. We will continue to do so – with far more coming. But we need a little help from our friends to get the word out on a very tight deadline.”

Dating website shutters public access to killer’s profile


October 2, 2015


Photos from Christopher Harper Mercer’s MySpace page

The Oregon gunman who lined up his victims and asked specifically which ones were Christians before shooting them execution style had a special interest in “magick” and “spiritualism” and had joined a dating website called “Spiritual Passion.”

On the site, Christopher Harper Mercer, 26, who killed nine people and injured seven at Umpqua Community College in Roseburg before he was shot and killed by police, describes his politics as “Republican” and his interests as “killing zombies,” meditation, the occult and punk-rock music.

He also made clear that he had a disdain for organized religion. Using the handle “IronCross45,” Mercer describes himself as a “not religious,” man who lives with his parents. He belonged to a group on the site who shared common interests in “magick and the occult.” Under the category of “Religious Views,” Mercer wrote that he is not religious but is “spiritual” and was interested in “pagan” and “wiccan.”

He listed “vampire, piercings, psychic, tattoos” under the category of “Individuality.”

By midday Friday the dating site had removed Mercer’s page and blocked public access to his account but WND captured a screen shot (see below).

Mercer’s tactics, searching for Christians and killing them, bore a remarkable similarity to the Columbine High School incident where the shooters also targeted Christians, including Rachel Scott, who was the first to be killed for her faith that fateful day on April 20, 1999.

“It is astounding and inspiring to consider the number of young people who died as Christian martyrs in this horrific mass murder, a shooting spree that involved the specific targeting of Christians,” Carl Gallups, a Baptist pastor in Florida, author and former police officer who hosts a national radio show, told WND.

What do YOU think? Your thoughts on Obama reaction to mass shooting? Sound off in today’s WND poll.

Gallups’ latest book, “Be Thou Prepared: Equipping the Church for Persecution and Times of Trouble,” addresses the growing persecution of Christians in America. “They could not have known when they got up that morning they would be called upon to deny Jesus Christ, or die,” Gallups said of the courageous Christians in Oregon.

“Many are asking, ‘how could this happen in America?’ Sadly, the answer appears to be that not only ‘can’ it happen in America, but also, it will probably continue to happen with increasing frequency as the spiritual makeup of our nation continues to decay,” Gallups continued. “In the wake of this tragedy, the people of God will have even more opportunities to be the “salt and the light” and to demonstrate the love of Jesus.”

Only two ‘friends’ on Myspace

Blogger and author Pamela Geller noted that on Mercer’s Myspace page he had only two friends, “a girl and a jihadi.” The male friend is Mahmoud Ali Ehsani.

“He has just two friends — a girl and a jihadi,” Geller writes. “Check out the terror sympathizer’s page — ‘kill the jews.’ “The media has avoided mentioning this at all.”

Mercer said on the dating site he wanted a girlfriend and described his personality as a “loner, shy at first, but warm up quickly, side kick, better in small groups, geek, nerd, intellectual, punk, introvert.” He also idolized other mass shooters and terrorists. A Myspace account linked to Mercer’s email address shows pictures of him in black ski mask and full military dress holding a rifle and also images of Irish Republican Army logos. He also had an affinity for other mass killers.

In a blog, Harper-Mercer especially admired the Roanoke TV-interview shooter, Vester Flanagan, the Daily Beast reported. People “like him have nothing left to live for,” Mercer wrote on Aug. 31. “On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are… A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.” Mercer reportedly told his victims, “Oh, you’re a Christian? Well you’re about to see God.”

A well-defined pattern

Forensic psychiatrist Dr. Michael Welner, MD, told Fox News the pattern is familiar of someone who recognizes from watching others that they have an opportunity to be made “larger than life.”

“This converges with someone who recognizes he’s a failure as a man,” Welner said, “and that he can go overnight from a nobody to a celebrity. “He admired that he could get the attention from killing alone. And by saying something as callous as ‘pray, because you’re about to be meet your maker’ or whatever he said,” Welner added. “He admired that he could get the attention from killing alone. Hey, what can I do that’s outrageous, and where can I target where people are defenseless and wont’ stop me from killing as many people as I can get away with.”

Welner said these types of killers, like Mercer and Dylan Roof, the Charleston, South Carolina, church shooter, are not necessarily ingrained racists.

“No, it starts with a desire to kill because one recognizes one will be larger than life,” he said. On the dating site Mercer said he was an Internet junkie and fantasized about “killing zombies.” Gary Evans, 62, who was married to Harper-Mercer’s aunt, told The Daily Beast in a phone interview that when Harper-Mercer came into the world, his birth father was not in the picture. “They were separated when I first met them, and I don’t believe they ever were married,” Evans said. The father is Caucasian, Evans said, while Harper-Mercer’s mother, Laurel Harper, is black.

Islam: Not a Religion of Peace, but a ‘House of War’

I am going to proffer a guess that someone at WND read the May 13 post “The Muslim Solution”. That post offered two concepts to solving the perpetual Quranic edict against non-Muslims.
WND sent out a book review of a book they are releasing on July 8, 2015 – “House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World”. This book exposes the real nature of Islam according to its own considered holy writings. So if any generous soul decides to pre-order the book, perhaps contact me to let me know about your generosity. The need for contact is I’d hate to receive 100 copies of what promises to be an awesome read. J

Islam: Not a Religion of Peace, but a ‘House of War’
Review sent by and by
Sent: 5/14/2015 12:22 PM

WASHINGTON – With the toppling of one Mideast dictator after another and the ensuing “Arab Spring,” horrendous terrorist attacks are increasingly being perpetrated by groups and individuals claiming to act in the name of Islam.

“The bad quasi-secular dictatorships of the Middle East have been replaced,” says G. M. Davis, leaving chaos and anarchy, a “fertile ground for jihadist groups whose violent aspirations are in no way limited to their own societies.” Yet Western political leaders, with the support of the major media, have consistently affirmed their belief that, despite the violence done in its name, Islam is a religion of peace.

The critical question is, who is right? Do Muslims who wage violent jihad against unbelievers fundamentally misunderstand their own religion? Or are the jihadists following their holy book in their willingness to die as martyrs according to the dictates of their god, who promises paradise to those who “fight in his cause and kill and are killed, a promise binding on him in truth” (Koran 9:111)? With the West engaged in military operations in multiple Islamic countries and with a rapidly growing Muslim population at home, the answer is of critical importance to the future of Western Civilization.

Relying primarily on Islam’s own sources, House of War: Islam’s Jihad Against the World (formerly Religion of Peace? Islam’s War Against the World and now available in paperback), compellingly documents that Islam is indeed a violent, expansionist ideology that seeks the subjugation and destruction of other faiths, cultures, and systems of government.

To be published by WND Books on July 8, House of War explains how Islam is more than just a religion. It is a system of government, seeking to extend its own peculiar legal code – Sharia law – over the entire world. The “peace” Islam seeks is a world united by the Islamic faith and Sharia law under which all other faiths and political regimes have been either suppressed or eliminated. “Jihad” is the violent struggle against the non-Islamic world to bring it into “submission” to Islamic rule.

“The idea that Islam is a religion of peace,” says Davis, “is fundamentally, totally, and disastrously wrong.” Westerners have been indoctrinated to believe that the jihadists they see on television are extremists who have twisted their religion to serve a violent purpose, when in fact, “Islam is intrinsically violent. It is the impetus for modern terrorism, and its doctrines necessitate that the only possible relationship between Islamic civilization and non-Islamic civilization is war or subjugation,” says Davis. By delving into key Islamic writings, Davis reveals the fastest-growing religion in the world for what it is – an existential threat to Western Civilization, a reality to which Western leaders remain determinedly blind.

G. M. Davis is a Mideast scholar, author, and filmmaker. He graduated from the University of Rochester in 1997 with a BA in political science, and from Stanford in 2003 with a PhD in the same area of study.

House of War will be available on July 8, 2015.

White House aide linked to al-Qaida Funder

Mehdi K. Alhassani - Radical Muslim BHO WH

It is surprising that a Tea Party organization has posted a Counterjihad expose. What is not surprising, is that this Tea Party organization has exposed a Radical Muslim in President Barack Hussein Obama’s White House that has links not only to Radical Islam but the Radical Islamic organizations he is linked to are supportive of Islamic terrorists such as the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda. utilized WND and Walid Shoebat as sources linking special assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff of the National Security Council Mehdi K. Alhassani directly to the Muslim World League (MWL). The MWL is also linked to Hillary Clinton’s Deputy of Staff Huma Abedin.

White House aide linked to al-Qaida Funder


By Exclusive

May 10, 2014 10:07 am


Recipient of Benghazi bombshell email blaming attack on Internet video


(Tea Party) – A troubling thread links Hillary Clinton’s former chief of staff to the current special assistant to the National Security Council chief of staff of the military’s Islamic chaplain program—the Muslim World League—reported WND. The Muslim World League is a group that has been accused of financing al-Qaida and is even more radical than the Muslim Brotherhood.


Offshoots of the organization have been declared official terrorist organizations by both the US State Department and the United Nations. Despite all of that, Muslim World League-linked individuals have been placed in key national security positions. Furthermore, those individuals with radical ties are helping to run the military’s chaplain program.


Last week, the case of Mehdi K. Alhassani, special assistant to the Office of the Chief of Staff of the National Security Council, drew attention in the blogosphere world after former a PLO operative named Walid Shoebat reported on Alhassani’s ties to Muslim Brotherhood-linked groups.


It was in an administration email made public last week that was part of the Judicial Watch lawsuit where Alhassani’s name emerged. The email in question was sent to Alhassani and other officials from Ben Rhodes just days after the attack in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. Rhodes is Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communication


In the email, Rhodes clearly spells out need to “underscore that these protests are rooted in an Internet video, and not a broader failure of policy.”


It has since emerged that Alhassani was president of the Muslim Student Association at George Washington University from 2005 to 2006—a group that was openly founded by Muslim Brotherhood activists.


Although founded by Brotherhood activists, MSA’s roots are far more dangerous and tie into both Clinton’s deputy chief of staff and adviser, Huma Abedin, and Alhassani as well as the military’s chaplain program.


MSA received its start-up funding from the Muslim World League, or MWL.


Jihad is their way


Shoebat reported that Huma Abedin served on the board of the MSA at George Washington University in 1997. It so happens that the MSA’s official anthem is a restatement of the Muslim Brotherhood credo. This is what it states:


Allah is our objective


The Prophet is our leader


The Quran is our law


Jihad is our way


Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope


News media WND previously attended an MSA event and at that event speakers urged violence against the U.S.:


“We are not Americans,” speaker Muhammad Faheed shouted at Queensborough Community College in 2003. He continued: “We are Muslims. [The U.S.] is going to deport and attack us! It is us versus them! Truth against falsehood! The colonizers and masters against the oppressed, and we will burn down the master’s house!”


It was also WND that reported Abedin worked on the editorial board of her father’s Saudi-financed Islamic think tank alongside Abdullah Omar Naseef, secretary-general of the Muslim World League. Naseef’s connections to the Abedin family run deep.


Huma’s father, Professor Syed Abedin, founded the Institute for Minority Affairs. The Institute for Minority Affairs is a Saudi group that reportedly had the active support of Naseef. Her mother, Saleha, is the editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs. The Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs is the publication of Syed’s institute.


The Institute for Minority Affairs touts itself as being “the only scholarly institution dedicated to the systematic study of Muslim communities in non-Muslim societies around the world.”


Huma Abedin served on the editorial board of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for six years, from 2002 to 2008. Shoebat previously obtained documents revealing that Naseef served on the board with Huma for at least one year—December 2002 to December 2003.


In an interesting turn, the sudden departure of Naseef from the board in December 2003 happens to coincide with a time that various charities that happen to be led by Naseef’s Muslim World League were declared illegal terrorism fronts worldwide. The U.S. and U.N were among those who made these declarations.


Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin, has been quoted as representing both the MWL and serving as a delegate for the charity in numerous press accounts.


Founded in Mecca in 1962, the MWL proclaims to be one of the largest Islamic non-governmental organizations. However, U.S. government documents and testimony from officials at t the charity show that the Saudi government heavily finances it.


The MWL and several of its offshoots, including the International Islamic Relief Organization, or IIRO, and Al Haramain, have been accused of having terrorist ties. Al Haramain was declared by the U.S. and U.N. to be a terror-financing front.


In a press release dated September 2004, the Treasury Department alleged direct links between Al Haramain and Osama bin Laden. The group has been banned worldwide by United Nations Security Council Committee 1267.


Long-held accusations have also stated that the IIRO and MWL repeatedly funded al-Qaida.


In fact, bin Laden reportedly told an associate that the MWL was one of his three most important charity fronts.


In a profile of the MWL, the Anti-Defamation League accuses the group of promulgating a “fundamentalist interpretation of Islam around the world through a large network of charities and affiliated organizations.”


“Its ideological backbone is based on an extremist interpretation of Islam,” the profile states, “and several of its affiliated groups and individuals have been linked to terror-related activity.”


U.S. News and World Report documented back in 2003, that with MWL’s donations, invariably come “a blizzard of Wahhabist literature.”


“Critics argue that Wahhabism’s more extreme preachings – mistrust of infidels, branding of rival sects as apostates and emphasis on violent jihad –laid the groundwork for terrorist groups around the world,” said the report.


In 1990 in Florida, an Egyptian-American cab driver, Ihab Mohamed Ali Nawawi, was arrested on accusations he was an al-Qaida sleeper agent and a former personal pilot to bin Laden. At the time of the accusation, he also reportedly worked at MWL in its Pakistani branch.


In 1988, the MWL founded the Al Haramain Islamic Foundation. The group was responsible for developing chapters in approximately 50 countries. Until it was designated as a terrorist organization they had a chapter in Oregon.


Evidence began to grow in the early 1990s that showed the foundation was funding Islamic militants in Somalia and Bosnia. In 1996 a CIA report detailed their Bosnian militant ties.


Al Haramain’s offices in Kenya and Tanzania were designated by the U.S. Treasury as sponsors of terrorism. This designation came about as a result of the group’s role in planning and funding the bombings of two American embassies in East Africa in 1998. The Comoros Islands office was also designated because it “was used as a staging area and exfiltration route for the perpetrators of the 1998 bombings.”


In 2003, The New York Times reported that Al Haramain had provided funds to another terrorist group—the Indonesian group Jemaah Islamiyah. Jemaah Islamiyah was responsible for the bombings in Bali in 2002 that killed 202 people. Later, the Treasury designated the Indonesia office a terrorist entity.


Then the following year in February 2004, the U.S. Treasury Department froze all of Al Haramain’s financial assets pending an investigation. That led the Saudi government to disband the charity, making it part of the Saudi National Commission for Relief and Charity Work Abroad.


Al-Haramain was designated a terrorist organization in September 2004 by the U.S.

Four years later, in June 2008, the Treasury Department applied the terrorist designation to the entire Al-Haramain organization all over the world.


Bin Laden’s brother-in-law linked to terrorist plots


The Philippine and Indonesian branch offices of the MWL-founded IIRO were also designated as terrorist entities in August 2006. According to the Treasury Department they were designated as terrorist organizations “for facilitating fundraising for al-Qaida and affiliated terrorist groups.”


The Treasury Department continued: “Abd Al Hamid Sulaiman Al-Mujil, a high-ranking IIRO official [executive director of its Eastern Province Branch] in Saudi Arabia, has used his position to bankroll the al-Qaida network in Southeast Asia. Al-Mujil has a long record of supporting Islamic militant groups, and he has maintained a cell of regular financial donors in the Middle East who support extremist causes.”


In the 1980s, Osama bin Laden’s brother-in-law Mohammed Jamal Khalifa ran the Philippines offices of the IIRO. Khalifa has been linked to plots targeting the pope and U.S. airlines.


In addition, the IIRO has been pointedly accused of funding Hamas, Algerian radicals, Afghanistan militant bases and the Egyptian terror group Al-Gamaa al-Islamiyya.


The families of the 9/11 victims filed a lawsuit against IIRO among other Muslim organizations for having “played key roles in laundering of funds to the terrorists in the 1998 African embassy bombings” as well as for having been involved in the “financing and ‘aiding and abetting’ of terrorists in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing,” reported the New York Post.


It’s a Saudi government front


In one Canadian court case, the Canadian director of both the IIRO and the MWL, Arafat El-Asahi, admitted the charities are near entities of the Saudi government.

El-Asahi said: “The Muslim World League, which is the mother of IIRO, is a fully government-funded organization. In other words, I work for the government of Saudi Arabia. I am an employee of that government.


“Second, the IIRO is the relief branch of that organization, which means that we are controlled in all our activities and plans by the government of Saudi Arabia. Keep that in mind, please,” said El-Asahi.


Even though its offshoots were implicated in terror financing, the U.S. government never designated the MWL itself as a terror-financing charity. It has been widely speculated that this is because the U.S. does not want to not embarrass the Saudi government.


Muslim chaplain program


Last week in a blog posting Shoebat stated that Alhassani attended the Islamic Center of Boston in Wayland, Massachusetts—that is the sister mosque to the Islamic Society of Boston. The Islamic Society of Boston was founded by Abdurahman Alamoudi—a convicted terrorist.


WND first reported on Alamoudi’s role in founding the American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council. The Council was created in 1991 and operates under the umbrella of the American Muslim Foundation.


The American Muslim Armed Forces and Veterans Affairs Council was the official endorsing agency of the military’s Muslim chaplain program along with the Muslim Brotherhood-tied Islamic Society of North America, or ISNA.


ISNA, an unindicted co-conspirator in a scheme to raise money for Hamas, still happens to be the official endorsing agency for all Muslim chaplains in the U.S. military.


An Islamic cleric, Alamoudi served as an Islamic adviser to President Bill Clinton and it was Alamoudi who guided the establishment of the military’s Muslim chaplain program.


Alamoudi has been said to have handpicked the army’s first Islamic chaplain, Imam Abdul-Rasheed Muhammad. Muhammad is still serving in that Islamic chaplain position. It also happens to be Muhammad who endorsed the most recent Islamic chaplains who just joined the military. He was also a key figure in the selection of several of the military’s other Islamic chaplains.


Where is Alamoudi now? He is serving a 23-year sentence for terrorism-related financial transactions with the Libyan government and for his purported role in the conspiracy to assassinate then-Saudi Crown Prince Abdullah.


In one report, Newsweek journalists Mark Hosenball and Michael Isikoff described Alamoudi as an “expert in the art of deception.” The article in Newsweek noted that Alamoudi espoused moderate, pro-American views while lobbying for Muslim causes in the U.S. But at a rally he expressed support for Hamas and Hezbollah.


The American Muslim Council was founded by Alamoudi in 1990. The American Muslim Council is a lobbying group advocating on behalf of Muslims in the United States.


The first Islamic military chaplain, Muhammad, is also tied to the al-Qaida-front Muslim World League.


Alamoudi’s American Islamic Council recommended Muhammad for appointment.


Alamoudi was present at Muhammad’s swearing-in ceremony. He was also at the 1996 swearing-in of the military’s second Muslim chaplain, Lt. (junior grade) Monje Malak Abd al-Muta Ali Noel Jr.


A convert to Islam, Muhammad joined the Lost-Found Nation of Islam, a black Muslim group that espoused racial separatism and black nationalism in 1974. Later he claimed that he did not fully subscribe to the radical group’s philosophy but was attracted by the organization’s emphasis on personal responsibility and self-help.


Muhammad stated, “In the projects where I grew up, the women were exploited. In the Nation of Islam the men were always polite. They were always clean cut. I felt the Nation of Islam had more to offer than the church.”


Muhammad detailed his association with the Muslim World League during a 1993 interview with Muslehuddin Ahmed of


According to the website, Muhammad was in discussion with the charity to help establish the army’s Muslim chaplain program.


During the time that Muhammad was associated with the MWL, the group spawned Muslim charities—those charities as it turns out, were alleged fronts for al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden.


As Muhammad stated to Islam4all, he was an “honored guest” of the MWL for his pilgrimage to Mecca.


“He was also full of praise for the Muslim World League for its excellent arrangements, which it had made for its guests, and was highly impressed by its dedicated Secretary General Dr. Ahmad Muhammad Ali, who symbolized for him a model Muslim leader,” Islam4all reported.


Furthermore the Islamic website reported that Muhammad said he would work closely with the MWL and he began an “ongoing interaction with the MWL in shaping and developing a vital Islamic presence within the U.S. Armed Forces.”


Muhammad “evinced keen interest in the magazines and other publications of the Muslim World League and other similar organizations for support in his Dawah (outreach) work.” reported the website.

Leftist Propaganda Meant to Smear and Disarm Govt. Criticism

Cliven Bundy 2

John R. Houk

© April 27, 2014


Last Thursday I was listening to a Kelly Files report on Fox News. Megyn Kelly was talking about a New York Times exposé on Cliven Bundy. The author of the NYT exposé was Adam Nagourney. The essence of what Nagourney wrote is that in an interview with Cliven Bundy is a racist old bigot proven by statements in Bundy’s own words.


Evidently Megyn had not had all the information to form a rebuttal to Nagourney. From memory it seemed Megyn – using an even-handed voice – was regretful that the hero of property rights and the public opinion against Federal government intrusion in appropriating private land or sovereign state land, made racist statements about Black-Americans. I would say public control, but we all know today that Obama and his cadre of Leftists in government does not view “public” as We the People, rather the Obama cadre system considers “public” the bailiwick of top to bottom control of the Federal government’s whim – even ignoring the Constitutional checks and balances of the U.S. Congress.


So at this point I kind of shut down on listening to any other reports on television news knowing that even if Nagourney’s information was refutable I probably would not hear. Even when everyone knows the NYT is an in-the-tank Leftist rag these days, its past reputation as an honest source of the news is rarely contested when a story is presented as fact rather than an editorial opinion.


In my mind I knew Cliven Bundy was an old legitimate western cowboy. I mean literally, he grew up punching cattle on a family ranch. You have to realize these guys have an individuality that brings to mind the old wild west of cowpokes on horseback riding the range. My grandfather passed away in his seventies in the 1990s. That means he would have about 20 years the seniors of Cliven Bundy who I believe is currently in his late 60s. God rest my grandpa’s soul, he was one of these old cowboys that worked both with horses and with sheep. A combination that would have been a bit contradictory professionally in the late 1880s and 1890s. Regardless of the time span I know from experience my gramps was an honest hard working man that worked seasonal jobs in his older age as a ranch hand or a sheep herder in which he worked in what was left of the open spaces. The thing about these old boys, rather they were hard living party cowboys or Church going cowpokes, they had a bit of a rough matter-of-fact demeanor.


Let me share a brief story about my grandpa in his last days when he lived in a Nursing Home. Every Sunday while he could get about we picked him up from the Nursing Home for a day at Church and either a home cooked meal or day of lunch at a restaurant.


One of those days we went to Church as usual. We stood during worship singing good old fashioned combo Charismatic-Pentecostal songs with a few contemporary worship tunes thrown in. We sat down and listened to the sermon. I have to be I do have a memory that the Pastor’s sermon was inspiring but I do not recall at this time what it was about. But this one thing I do remember. After we were dismissed from the Service by the Pastor my grandpa did his half-step walking thing with his cane to grab the Pastor as he was walking by to do the traditional pastoral well-wishing at the door. My grandpa got our Pastor’s attention because he wanted to say a few brief words. And trust me – they were brief.  My grandpa had his big whiskered smile on his and reached to shake the Pastor’s hand and said this to him:


“That was the best g*d d**n service I’ve ever heard!”


Check it out! Even today I can’t bring myself to spell out the words.


As the words left my grandpa’s lips to my ears, I was standing directly behind him with my draw dropped and my hands covering my eyes and head while it was shaking. I was incredulous even though I suspected something down to cowboy earth would escape his vocal cords. I dreaded the response of our Pastor.


Pastor raised his eyes with a twinkle in them and looked directly into my grandpa’s and with mirth in his voice replied to my grandpa, “Why thank you” – followed by a heartfelt chuckle and a firm handshake.


My Pastor with much welcome on my part defused a frightful situation for me. But you know, that was the kind of well-meaning sincerity without thought of circumstantial consequences for political correctness that was my old cowboy grandpa.


When old cowboys like Cliven Bundy or my grandfather say something like “negroes” instead of more politically correct Black-Americans or Afro-Americans. My grandpa was not as so-much a Church-going man like Cliven Bundy. If the NYT would have talked to my grandpa they would have heard a term pertaining to Black Americans that is considered heinous hate-speech today, but in the days of my grandpa’s youth would not have been among his peers to be a racist word. Just like I can’t spell out the complimentary profanity my grandpa used toward my Pastor, also I am not going to write the Black American word that is considered – and well should be – hate-speech today. I guarantee my grandpa would not have intended the offensive word to be racist any more than I believe that Cliven Bundy’s expression that perhaps negroes were better off in slavery than the slave-dependence of government welfare today. Indeed, I have heard respected Conservative pundits say the same thing but with much more eloquent terms.


Anyway, I have since learned that the NYT and Adam Nagourney actually edited the Bundy interview to show Bundy in the most racist light possible. I have discovered that Leftists like the NYT purposefully smeared the ineloquent words of Cliven Bundy and his old cowboy thoughts that not up to date to 21st century pc language that is more cognizant of what is hurtful and what is proper in a social setting.


I have three different stories below that expose the NYT and Media Matters exposé as Left Wing propaganda meant to show Cliven Bundy in the worst possible light and disarm sympathetic American voters from expressing derision against Federal government Big Brother overreach.


There are two WND articles below. The first WND article has a Bundy Peter Schiff interview. In the second WND article has two videos of Cliven Bundy making his controversial remarks about Blacks and Mexicans at the end: the first video is an unedited that the NYT and Media Matters did not want you to see and the second is the edited version that is being used to smear Bundy. (The Schiff-Bundy interview and the edited and unedited WND videos are not Youtube videos so I am not posting those.) Then last I have an article that has the Youtube version of the unedited version of the Bundy remarks and then places the edited parts in bold print to see the actual context Cliven Bundy was saying.

Contends rancher talking about harm to African-Americans by ‘leftist socialism’


April 24, 2014



A prominent black leader is coming to the defense of embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was pilloried on Thursday after the New York Times published a quote by him referencing slavery.

“He wasn’t talking so much about black folks, but about the harm and damage that the leftist socialism has done to blacks,” said former U.N. Ambassador Alan Keyes, who also is a columnist for WND.


The New York Times, in a report by Adam Nagourney, said Bundy, in a daily meeting Saturday with reporters and photographers covering his case, made the comments that critics are calling racist.


“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” Nagourney quoted Bundy saying.


Bundy was recalling public housing projects in North Las Vegas.


“And in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids – and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch – they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do.


 They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do,” he said.


“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”


Ammon Bundy, Cliven Bundy’s son, told WND that the quotes were taken out of context and that his father was commiserating over the poor situation in which blacks find themselves because of oppressive government programs, regulations and practices.


Keyes said that was evident.


“I find it appalling that we basically have a history of the leftist liberalism that wants to extinguish black people by abortion [and] destroying the family structure,” Keyes told WND. “All of these things if you just look at the effects, you would say this was planned by some racist madman to destroy the black community.”


Discover America’s real black-white history, in “Setting the Record Straight: American History in Black and White.”


Then when somebody comes along to comment on that damage, the leftists all scream “racism,” he said.

“I think it’s time somebody started to recognize the racism that exists in its effects – the hard leftist ideology using the black community for their sacrificial lamb, for their sick ideology. It’s time we called them what they are,” he said.


“Now it’s racist to point it out.”


Ammon Bundy told WND: “They took what they wanted. They knew when they were there his comments were not racist. He wasn’t able to completely articulate. That’s just my dad. He is a very principled person.


He said he was “there standing right beside my father when he made those comments.”


“He was reaching out to the black community,” Ammon Bundy said.


“Growing up around him, and being beside him, I never once heard him say anything negative about any race,” he said. “I wish I could say that about everyone else I’ve been around. The black community, the white community, they joke back and forth. My father’s never lowered himself.”


Ammon Bundy said his father’s message “was taken out of context.”


The point was that the government “has kept them oppressed,” he said. “They’ve never been given a situation to be able to thrive, get themselves out of slavery.”


The Right Scoop blog reported Cliven Bundy confirmed he was wondering about what’s best for blacks.


“That’s exactly what I said. I said I’m wondering if they’re better off under government subsidy, and their young women are having the abortions and their young men are in jail, and their older women and their children are standing, sitting out on the cement porch without nothing to do, you know, I’m wondering: Are they happier now under this government subsidy system than they were when they were slaves, and they was able to have their family structure together, and the chickens and garden, and the people had something to do? And so, in my mind I’m wondering, are they better off being slaves, in that sense, or better off being slaves to the United States government, in the sense of the subsidies. I’m wondering. That’s what. And the statement was right. I am wondering.”

Video-Audio: Peter Schiff interviewing Cliven Bundy



Bundy, 67, has been in the headlines over the past few weeks for his defiance of the federal government’s demand that he pay grazing fees. The federal Bureau of Land Management responded with an operation to confiscate and sell off his cattle.


Bundy claims that since his ranch operation, run by his family for more than 100 years, was grazing cattle before the BLM existed, his fees should be paid to the state, not Washington. More than 1,000 supporters, including armed militia members, joined Bundy at his ranch in a standoff with federal agents.


The federal agents backed down April 12, released the cattle and left the area.


WND reported just days ago Cliven Bundy’s interview with radio talk show host Dianne Linderman on the nationally syndicated “Everything That Matters” show.


On Easter Sunday, he said he respects the federal government, pledging allegiance to the flag.


“But [the government] has its place. It doesn’t have its place in the state of Nevada and … Clark County, and that’s where my ranch is. The federal government has no power and no ownership of this land, and they don’t want to accept that,” he said.


“I don’t stand alone,” he continued, “I have all of the prayers from lots of people around the world, and I feel those prayers. And those prayers take the tremble out of my legs. And I can stand strong and straight. And you know the spirit from our heavenly Father, I seek that every morning on my knees. And he gives me some guidance, and I go forth and I actually feel good. My health is good, my spirit is good and I feel strength. I do, I feel strength, I feel even happiness. And I have no idea where I’m going with this. It’s a day-by-day spiritual thing for me.”








First of all, let me begin by making an apology to Cliven Bundy.


In a slapdash column yesterday, I gave the New York Times more credit and credibility than it deserved.


I assumed, inappropriately and incorrectly, that the former newspaper of record had actually recounted the words of the Nevada rancher accurately and in context, given that there was an actual recording of the comments.


I was wrong.


After the Times smeared as a rock-ribbed racist through the use of selective quotes the new hero of resistance to tyranny in America, there was a new development: The video recording of the actual remarks emerged.


To say the New York Times bent over backwards to make Bundy look like an unregenerate bigot would be an understatement. I suggest you view the video for yourself at the end of this column. Does he seem like a hater to you? Or does he actually sound like a man with compassion for blacks who have been systematically abused by a new plantation mentality imposed by government dependence?


I did get one thing right, however. I explained it wasn’t really Bundy the New York Times was out to get. It was his supporters – especially elected officials who denounced the heavy-handed and militaristic way the Bureau of Land Management went after Bundy and his family.


It’s called guilt by association – something “progressives” formerly denounced. But, in this case, there was nothing to feel guilty about, because Bundy didn’t say anything racist.


Meanwhile, the guy who I suspect is the mastermind of the efforts by government to make an example of Cliven Bundy yesterday showed his own hand.


Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid called on all of his “progressive” friends to form a “united front” against Bundy.


Experience more of Joseph Farah’s no-nonsense truth-telling in his books, audio and video products, featured in the WND Superstore


For those of you untrained in the tactical and strategic arts of the totalitarian left, let me explain that terminology. “United front” has special meaning to only one group – communists. If you doubt what I, a former commie, have to say about it, just Google the term. See for yourself. What Harry Reid’s use of this term suggests is the left considers Cliven Bundy and all those rallying around his cause to be the most important target of the day. The “progressives” are apoplectic about this showdown in the desert. After all, they are supposed to be the champions of hardworking people. The government is supposed to be the friend and savior of working people. Yet, what Cliven Bundy has done, using “progressive” terminology, is to “heighten the contradictions” of socialist reality.


Therefore, as the left often concludes in such cases, he must be destroyed.


That’s why Harry Reid calls him a “domestic terrorist.” That’s why Harry Reid calls for a “united front” against this simple, seemingly powerless rancher. That’s why Harry Reid strangely said after the standoff in the desert was defused, “It’s not over.”


The left has big plans for Cliven Bundy.


The left sees Bundy as a real threat.


And I suspect that’s why the official mouthpiece of the establishment left – the New York Times – jeopardized what’s left of its own reputation by misconstruing and misrepresenting Bundy’s remarks.


He’s that dangerous!


That’s why it was so important to demonize him as a “racist.” They want to use him as a dividing point: Line up behind the “racist” or against him. That’s the strategy – even though race is not even an issue in the controversy Bundy started by merely doing what his family has been doing in the Nevada desert for over 100 years.


Do you get it?


He’s a symbol. For some of us he’s a symbol of a fight against encroaching tyranny. For others he’s a symbol of resistance to achieving their socialist panacea.


It’s the old divide-and-conquer strategy.


They can’t win with the facts, with reality, with truth. So they need to create a fog to obscure what’s really taking place on the ground.

Unedited Video Shows Bundy Making Pro-Black, Pro-Mexican Comments


By Paul Joseph Watson
April 25, 2014


The controversy over Cliven Bundy’s “racist” remarks has taken a new turn after longer unedited footage emerged showing the Nevada cattle rancher making pro-black and pro-Mexican comments that were excised out of media reports.


VIDEO: Cliven Bundy (Full) Controversial Remarks April 19, 2014


[Blog Editor: I included the below information from Youtube that was not a part of the news story.]


Posted by Allen Gwinn

Published: Apr 24, 2014 8:29 am

**** CNN soundbite version:…

Several comments here point out earlier remarks made by Bundy and claim these are taken out of context. In the interest of fairness, the above is a followup video of those remarks.

Full version of race remarks made by Bundy that have generated some controversy. If you’re looking for a more hacked-up soundbite version that makes him look more like a racist, you might want to check out what CNN did to him at the link (above)


The full clip illustrates how the original New York Times report edited out statements made by Bundy both before and after his supposedly “racist” remarks, which when taken in their full context actually constitute a pro-minority position. Media Matters also cut out these crucial comments from their YouTube upload of Bundy’s remarks.


Bundy’s full comments are reprinted below, with the parts not printed by the New York Times and other media outlets highlighted in bold.


…” and so what I’ve testified to ya’, I was in the WATTS riot, I seen the beginning fire and I seen the last fire. What I seen is civil disturbance. People are not happy, people is thinking they did not have their freedom; they didn’t have these things, and they didn’t have them.


We’ve progressed quite a bit from that day until now, and sure don’t want to go back; we sure don’t want the colored people to go back to that point; we sure don’t want the Mexican people to go back to that point; and we can make a difference right now by taking care of some of these bureaucracies, and do it in a peaceful way.


Let me tell… talk to you about the Mexicans, and these are just things I know about the negroes. I want to tell you one more thing I know about the negro.


When I go, went, go to Las Vegas, North Las Vegas; and I would see these little government houses, and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids…. and there was always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch. They didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for the kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for the young girls to do.


And because they were basically on government subsidy – so now what do they do? They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never, they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered are they were better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things? Or are they better off under government subsidy?


You know they didn’t get more freedom, uh they got less freedom – they got less family life, and their happiness -you could see it in their faces- they were not happy sitting on that concrete sidewalk. Down there they was probably growing their turnips – so that’s all government, that’s not freedom.


Now, let me talk about the Spanish people. You know I understand that they come over here against our constitution and cross our borders. But they’re here and they’re people – and I’ve worked side-by-side a lot of them.


Don’t tell me they don’t work, and don’t tell me they don’t pay taxes. And don’t tell me they don’t have better family structure than most of us white people. When you see those Mexican families, they’re together, they picnic together, they’re spending their time together, and I’ll tell you in my way of thinking they’re awful nice people.


And we need to have those people join us and be with us…. not, not come to our party.


While Bundy’s use of terms such as “negro,” “colored people” and references to picking cotton are undoubtedly politically incorrect (though not unsurprising for a 67-year-old farmer), when taken in its full context, his argument is actually anti-racist in that it laments the plight of black families who have been caught in the trap of dependency on government.


The comments that were also vehemently pro-Mexican were not included in any of the mainstream reports which smeared Bundy as a racist.


“What’s more sad than the refusal to openly discuss the issues – is how quickly the conservative right is willing to throw Bundy to the wolves based solely on the New York Times and Media Matters opinion,” writes the Conservative Treehouse blog, noting that Bundy’s comments are no more controversial than those made by Shirley Sherrod, who was staunchly defended by leftists.


While Bundy’s remarks have been spun as a racist call for a return to slavery, he is clearly using references to slavery only to make a point that blacks are no better off living under the economic slavery of the welfare state.


Furthermore, Bundy’s argument that, “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail,” is clearly directed at the government’s treatment of black people and is therefore a defense of and not an attack on black Americans.


“It is 100% clear that Cliven Bundy is not saying that blacks should be slaves picking cotton, but that the federal government has created conditions for them so terrible, that their current situation may actually be worse,” writes Jack Flash. “And he’s not blaming blacks for the issues of abortions, and crime and broken families, he’s blaming the Feds. This is the exact opposite of a racist, this is an advocate for the welfare and best interests of blacks. Racist? Why is he praising Mexicans as better than whites, if he’s some sort of white supremacist racist?”

Eyes on Target bk jk


On March 10, 2014 I cross posted Danny Jeffrey’s Part ONE to “Benghazi Reveal. At the end of that cross post I included a link to Part TWO on Danny’s Fix Bayonets blog. I later discovered that Danny made Part THREE and Part FOUR to his “Benghazi Reveal”. I highly encourage you to read all four reports to understand the depths of evil the Obama Administration has sunk too to retain power. Retaining power also means getting Hillary elected to the Office of POTUS to use at least four more years to bury the truth that Dem Leftists lie to voters to perpetuate their goal of transforming the USA into a Marxist/Socialist utopia that destroys the U.S. Constitution and the moral fiber of that which has made America good. The Benghazigate Scandal was of paramount concern to President Obama and comrades because its exposé probably would have cost Obama his reelection.


In the spirit of keeping America’s eye on the evil designs of the Obama Administration WND posted an article yesterday that derived information from Richard Miniter about newer evidence that Obama Officials – by extension Obama and Hillary – had a THREE MONTHS WARNING of an al Qaeda attack on Chris Stevens and did nothing to prevent it. Thus knowing of an upcoming attack Obama did nothing while it was happening in Benghazi and nefariously Barack Hussein Obama was not taking any calls while former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty kept fighting another 7 hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith had been killed in the attack.


There is an interview between Greg Corombos and Richard Miniter that is promoting the book “Eyes on Target: Inside Stories from the Brotherhood of the U.S. Navy SEALs”. Of my three blogs only SlantRight 2.0 will allow me to embed the video. Otherwise you will to watch the video at WND. There are two authors of “Eyes on Target” – Scott McEwen and Richard Miniter.

Months before attack, U.S. had photos of 300 armed militants near outpost

By Greg Corombos

March 13, 2014



Months before the 2012 Benghazi attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, the U.S. State Department had at least three detailed intelligence reports warning of al-Qaida’s build-up in Benghazi and quoting a militant leader who vowed to kill the U.S. ambassador, according to a new book chronicling the heroism of Navy SEALs.


American diplomats in Benghazi made even more urgent pleas for beefed up security than previously thought, and officials also refused to consider at least five military scenarios that could have saved the lives of two Americans in the terrorist attacks.


In “Eyes on Target: Inside Stories from the Brotherhood of the U.S. Navy SEALs,” authors Richard Miniter and Scott McEwen point to newly discovered government reports showing Ambassador Chris Stevens and his colleagues desperately requesting additional security and better personnel than the suspect Libyans already on the job. Those intelligence reports came in addition to multiple requests for additional security.


“We discovered three intelligence reports that circulated in the months before the attack. Each of those reports show intelligence agencies warning the State Department (and) warning the Defense Department there’s an al-Qaida build-up in Benghazi. One of those reports included photographs of more than 300 al-Qaida operatives in Martyr’s Square. That’s downtown Benghazi. That’s less than a mile from the diplomatic outpost where the ambassador died,” Miniter said.


“In those photographs in the intelligence report, they show them waving guns. There’s a quote mentioned in this intelligence report in which the leader of al-Qaida in Benghazi said if the U.S. doesn’t leave they were going to kill the U.S. ambassador. You can’t get any clearer than that,” he said.


Watch the WND/Radio America interview with Richard Miniter:


[Blog Editor: At this point you may have to go to WND to watch interview]


“Somewhere in the bowels of the State Department there’s a bureaucrat who has got the three intelligence reports, and on the other part of his desk he’s got the three or four security requests from the ambassador begging for more security guards. After reading those intelligence reports and seeing those pictures, he stamped each one of those denied, denied, denied.”


The attack in Benghazi came just weeks before the 2012 presidential election and while President Obama’s campaign portrayed al-Qaida as effectively dismantled and the ouster of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi as a major victory, wouldn’t a quiet increase in security be a less risky decision than leaving a diplomatic post vulnerable to attack?


Miniter said it was a political calculation.

“They were concerned that if somehow the American public were to learn that there was additional security for the ambassador or the diplomatic staff in Benghazi, it would take away the two winning arguments that they thought they had on foreign policy,” Miniter said. “So if they admitted that there was a massive al-Qaida build-up in Libya, that crosses off their two foreign policy successes and undermines the president’s case for re-election. So as crassly political as it was, that appears to be the motivation, according to the Benghazi eyewitnesses. These are participants in the tragedy that we interviewed.”


While Ambassador Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith were killed within the first 40 minutes of the initial attack, Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty fought on for another seven hours. While the Obama administration contends any military response would have taken 20 hours to mobilize and reach the fighting, “Eyes on Target” offers five different response scenarios that Miniter and McEwen say would have ended the fighting much sooner and most likely saved the lives of both Woods and Doherty.


The options ranged from Air Force fighters from Aviano Air Base to Navy fighters in Gaeta, both located in Italy to a drone strike and even a cruise missiles launched from the Mediterranean Sea. Miniter said the mere presence of fighter jets would have ended the crisis.


“The scenario that seems the best is simply dispatching F-16 Fighters from Italy and having them fly over Benghazi. The loud jet roar overhead would be enough to scatter the attackers. They certainly know that when facing the U.S. Air Force or U.S. Navy in the sky, death comes from above. With more than a hundred attackers, mortars, rocket attacks they would know that they were targets. Without firing a shot, they could have been driven off. That’s the kind of thing that President Obama, who doesn’t like combat, would tend to favor,” he said.


Told through the eyes of current and former Navy SEALs, “Eyes on Target” is an inside account of some of the most harrowing missions in American history – including the mission to kill Osama bin Laden and the mission that wasn’t, the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi.


In addition to denying permission for Doherty to go to Benghazi and any other sort of military intervention, “Eyes on Target” details the Obama administration’s paralysis in making any decisions on response to the attack. After an early evening briefing from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Obama was out of contact the rest of the night. So should he bear any blame for failing to launch military action, or does the responsibility lie with Panetta?


“While Americans were fighting and dying in Benghazi, the president was unreachable. According to congressional testimony, Panetta’s last conversation with the president was before 6:30 p.m. Washington time. Remember, Glen Doherty and Ty Woods, the two SEALs who fought to save the Americans, wouldn’t die for almost another seven hours. In that period, the president disappeared. He refused to take calls,” Miniter said.


Eighteen months later, the Benghazi investigation essentially falls along party lines, with Democrats saying there is no scandal and Republicans accusing the administration of leaving Americans on the field of battle and concocting a story around a spontaneous demonstration spurred by an Internet video to deflect from the many security warnings.


Will the final story on Benghazi simply be a matter of political opinion? Miniter doesn’t think so.


“Ultimately, I think this is going to be a turning point in the country’s assessment of the president,” he said. “The media are supposed to be referees, but instead they’re on the field being players. Too many of the media are simply playing to the White House’s agenda. Really, they should be watchdogs, not lapdogs.”
