PowerLine ^ | September 13, 2012 | John Hindraker

According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.

Congress lacks to balls to pursue this in any effective manner, and the MSM will not only refuse to cover it beyond a few days, they will continue their attacks on anyone who questions this administrations f ups indefinitely.

Obama and his mob will never be held to account, ever. Not unless we have a major shakeup in this country.

HillBuzz reporting that the Ambassador was openly gay; his ‘roommate’ has posted pix and remembrances on FaceBook. That the Ambassador was sodomized before and after he died because the Muslims were FURIOUS about this and wanted to make sure that when he got to Allah, he would be treated as a female.

I wonder when THAT part of the analysis will come out in the MSM or from the WH.

Why DO we send women and homosexuals to depraved Muslim countries?

Most devestating?

The US embassy in Tehran in november 1979 didn't fare well.

The US embassy in Lebanon in the 1980s didn't fare very well either.

There has been no explanation of why he was in Benghazi

According to a recent story posted somewhere here in the forum today, he was there to formally announce the gift of an emergency medical center in Benghazi. He was to share the podium with a doctor from the Mass. General Hospital, who was in charge of this "humanitarian" aid effort.

Evidently Eastern Libya lacks good medical services. I wonder why? Libya has plenty of oil money. It must be something else. . . .

Most civilized countries in the world are at war with the savages of Islam. In America, the war appears to have extended to Christians as well.

If this is true it is going to be very hard to say anything publicly about it because of concern for the privacy rights of a deceased man. It has to be handled delicately out of respect for Stevens.

However, if true, it sure shows that the attacks had to have been planned for quite a while, and not just some uprising over a film. The terrorists had to have been monitoring FB to find this evidence, posted by his roommate. and I am sure they didnh't just do that right before they attacked the embassy. This would mean that: Getting Stevens was a major part of their goal, and they had to be aware when he was there in order to accomplish their mission against him.

The Obama administration's failure to connect the dots is to blame for the lost lives and sensitive documents on September 11th 2012.

Instead of accepting responsibility they tell the terrorist that the US government is not at fault, the American people are and they apologise on behalf of our freedom of speech.. In other words "Leave our embassies alone. Next time target another skycraper"

Here is more on just how incompetent Obama and his administration are! http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/8407047/Libyan-rebel-commander-admits-his-fighters-have-al-Qaeda-links.html So it appears that Al Qaeda linked fighters are in Libya! It appears that only now are these facets of the problem in Libya being brought to the fore front. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/12/libya-al-qaeda_n_1878412.html There were two attacks on Western Diplomats in Libya in June of this year. One on the Compound in Benghazi and one on the British Ambassador. http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/11/us-libya-attack-britain-idUSBRE85A0TV20120611 5 days later there was an attack on the US Embassy at Benghazi in Libya. The leader of Al Qaeda asked for attacks to avenge the death of a Libyan Al Qaeda leader 24 hours before the Benghazi attack that killed ambassador Stevens. We know Obama was busy healing the earth, lowering the sea level and campaigning in Vegas or playing golf but maybe he should have attended a few more security briefings! Yes the attacks had been planned and I believe Al Qaeda had inside coordination with Libyan security forces!

The inquiry will not render a moral judgement on this mans sexual proclivities but rather upon the Muslims acts of depravity of torturing and killing this man and taking his body for 12 hours for heaven knows what. The focus must and should be on the killers and terrorists actions. The hatred of muslims for homosexuals lead to this result and Obama enabled it to happen. The differentiation of hating an act and not the actor should not be lost in the discussion.

They didn’t necessarily find out about him being gay through his roommate’s FB. The FB remembrances are, of course, posted post-death.

HillBuzz invested the consular/gay scene in Chicago after hearing these rumors, and it was a well-known FACT that he was gay. Since he lived in their country, and even the consulate workers would by all accounts have been Muslim, would not this fact have been known there? And at least one consulate worker or embassy guard found it reprehensible enough to spread the word? Most certainly, I believe.

If the Muslims in Benghai all knew it and it is known in the gay scene in Chicago, how ‘delicate’ of a secret could it be at this point? Delicate, only, to Obama and Hilary as they try to retain power in November. Those kinds of secrets need to be exposed for all to see, for they are also known as the TRUTH.

This is a piece of the puzzle that makes it all make sense, to me. And it makes a lie out of the ‘sodomite marriage’ crowd’s propaganda.

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers, who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

1979

2012


As Clint noted, the Empty Chair improved by codetoad:

It is past time to fire Barack and his empty chair and have both of them hit the road back to Chicago!

Obama “OWNS” Libya! He refused to go to Congress in accordance with the War Powers Act. He exercised total authority, without Congressional support (i.e., we the people) in bringing down Ghadiffi (same as with Obamacare, by the way) and now he must bear TOTAL RESPONSIBILITY!

His total arrogance and that of his hand picked administration (Hillary, Donavon, et al) is reflected in their decision to send a GAY MAN to serve as Ambassador to a Muslim country. He tried to tell the world how sensitive he was to the religious “feelings” of the Islamic world but look at his actions. The so called “film” is a idiotic piece of crap (yes, I watched what is on YouTube) but it is not a policy affront to the Muslims... sending a homo to their country knowing FULL WELL how they feel about such people was either stupid beyond comprehension or a deliberate act of indifference. Either way it reflects on a man who prides himself on “leading from behind”... Really? Behind who or what?

US embassy, Beirut 1983....63, including 17 Americans, were killed.

1979, US Ambassador to Afghanistan murdered.

The MSM is linking Obama to clinton because obama is running the clinton commercials and it plays to that ad blitz.

The MSM has yet to say the word “Carter” in any meaningful way.

The MSM is complicit as any enemy in this war.

Why are we assuming that there is no local gay community in Libya?

I agree, but the muslims will kill them because they are homosexual. They kill their own for that reason.
