Skip to comments.Scandal: Obama, Libya, Lies, and Al Qaeda

... the attack on the US facility in Benghazi is a scandal of--literally--murderous proportions. The lack of concern for even basic security procedures, the mishandling of intelligence information, the willful blindness towards the causes of the attack, and the outrageous and outright lying to cover up the incompetence by Carney, Rice, Clinton, Obama, and now Clapper is breath-taking.
The late Ambassador Stevens, I am sorry to say, has a share of the blame for the failure to use common sense and to behave in a manner that would have protected him and his people. This failure cost him his life and those of three other Americans, and apparently produced a catastrophe for US interests.
Here's the issue:
What we are seeing is more than a failure of intelligence. It is a monstrous example of an unforced error. The Obama misadministration and the compliant bureaucracy convinced themselves that things were now different. They were certain that with the election of Obama, of Nobel Laureate Obama, the Middle East and the Muslim world no longer would be the Middle East and the Muslim world. That thanks to Obama's Third World connections, soaring rhetoric, good intentions, and loud "mea culpas" on behalf of Western civilization, all of America's past sins had been forgiven. We had entered the Golden Age of Peace, Love, Democracy, and Equality. I am not exaggerating. I saw this same mentality at work, for example, in the misadministration's policies towards Latin America, where groveling and self-flagelation were the orders of the day. There was a persistent disbelief in the evil of the Castro, Chavez, etc., regimes, and in their commitment to destroying the US. "Everybody loves President Obama," we were told.
We saw this self-delusion in action in the statement by White House spokesman Carney that the violent attacks on our embassies and facilities in the Muslim world were merely the result of a silly 14-minute video clip and not aimed at America or the Obama administration. We saw it in the insistence by Rice and others that the Benghazi attack was not a pre-planned terrorist action (we still see that in the DNI statement.) It was just "folks" who got a bit out of hand.
The next step will be, as predicted earlier, to blame it all on some small group of extremists that are not with the democracy wave now "sweeping" the Middle East. We will see some drones or SEALs in action, and some bad guys will die, and deservedly so. To see, however, Al Qaeda or other terrorists as some sort of alien graft onto the Muslim world ignores the basic issue: the nature of modern Islam, a totalitarian ideology that resorts to violence and the constant threat of violence to hold sway. Today's Islam provides the perfect environment for the terrorists.
That's a perfect encapsulation of what Team Obama believes .... and the nature of Islam. We continue down this road at our peril, literally at the peril of our lives.
Hasan, the terrorist/murderer, was on Obama’s
Inauguration committee in 2007 and 2008.
Why is there NOT ONE person in Congress
or the Pentagon that cares?
No one died during Watergate, but when caught in a cover up, Nixon resigned. Your turn Obama.
Why is there NOT ONE person in Congress or the Pentagon that cares?”
GRRRRRREAT question, Diogenesis! Plunder & Death...Socialism 2.0 “We’re All Socialists Now”. Socialists work hand-in-hand with totalitarians. Stevens and the rest of us are just a...”bump in the road”. “Never let a crisis go to waste”.

DEPOPULATE socialists from the body politic. Occupy their assets. DEFUND their collectives. The debt clock gets reversed, our taxes go down, the republic remains strong and solvent.
BIG GOVERNMENT IS CRONY SOCIALISM.
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
Alter it. State and federal legislatures can be part-time jobs with no perks, no benefits, no medical, no retirement, no staff. These POS politicians can get a real job doing something productive not progressive.
DEPOPULATE, DEFUND, DISMANTLE, DEFEAT
live - free - republic
most in US dont care
