Gardiner: 'White House’s Benghazi Bungling is Proving a Disaster'
Reaganite Republican ^ | 30 November 2012 | Reaganite Republican

' every impression that it is lacking in transparency, competence and accountability'

With the liberal, old-guard media still in bed with the White House and the recent election behind them, Team Obama surely thought Benghazigate would be promptly buried and forgotten. Alas, it's really not working out that way, is it...

The problem is that instead of forthcoming, good-faith disclosure -and perhaps some smidgen of accountability- the habitually-dishonest Obama Administration has been lying about Benghazi from the start: the cause, the circumstances on the ground, the perpetrators, what they knew and when they knew it,  who's to blame for dismissal of security concerns at our consulate, Obama's initial reaction to the attack, etc

Dear Leader has also run the bus right over Hillary, Petraeus, and two top commanders in a shameful attempt to deflect blame for his own total and complete FAIL at Benghazi on 9/11/12, while orchestrating a cover-up so massive it makes Watergate look like some college prank.

It all started with a cockamamie story re. Benghazi having something to do with a YouTube video and a protest that never happened. UN Ambassador Susan Rice was pushed out on the stage to promote this for four days straight, yet Gen. Petraeus recently made it clear the CIA knew it was AQ right away...
and that they never bought into the 'protest' bit.

Now that Obama himself, his Director of National Intelligence (DNI), and the State Dept have all distanced themselves from the 'video' fairy-tale as well -adding they 'don't know' who edited-out mention of Al Qaeda from the Benghazi talking-points- you have to wonder why Susan Rice was out hard-selling us a fictional, fatherless version of events nobody seems to have ever believed for a minute.

Subsequent spray-painting of the turd has proved largely ineffectual. and now that Obama is attempting elevate that same toady Susan Rice to Secretary of State, her previous willingness to stand up and lie for this vile administration has brought the wrath of GOP lawmakers- it's about damn time they got pissed about something.

An increasingly cornered Obama has slipped-into his standard default setting of 'only the Republicans care about this', but that's not fooling most thinking people anymore- including some on the other side of the pond:
Daily Telegraph (UK):

President Obama hasn’t even begun his second term yet, but his administration is already struggling with a huge credibility problem on the Benghazi front...

Jay Carney told the assembled White House press corps: "...the president ... is not particularly concerned about whether the ambassador or I went out and talked about the fact that we believed extremists might have been responsible. And whether we named them as al Qaeda or not does not–no, it certainly doesn't have any bearing on what happened and who was responsible as that investigation was continuing on Benghazi." 

Carney’s response, as the president’s official spokesman is extraordinarily dismissive of the concerns of the American people as well as the United States Congress, and is representative of the administration’s shambolic handling of the Benghazi attack. 

Susan Rice is the US Ambassador to the United Nations and Obama’s likely choice to replace Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. What she misleadingly told millions of Americans on national television regarding the circumstances surrounding the first assassination of a US Ambassador since 1979 is of great public interest, and the nation deserves clear answers about what exactly the president and his top advisers knew before, during and after the Benghazi atrocity, and how they responded...

Already some political observers think that an arrogant, damn-the-torpedoes nomination of Susan Rice for Secretary of State
could be Barack Obama's political undoing...
and this one's a Democrat.

Plenty of questions left to answer about Benghazi and the (ongoing) Obama Administration cover-up, too- oh yeah.

We DO understand that. What you seem to be missing is that someone issued a stand down order TWICE to the SEALs because they requested permission to aid the ambassador and they were IN COUNTRY. THEY didn’t NEED CBA. THEY WERE ALREADY THERE!
In the end, they disobeyed those orders or thirty more Americans might have died. Everyone keeps saying this was a planned kidnapping...except me...because Smith and Stevens were already dead BEFORE the SEALs got there. And the other Americans were still under fire.
The rescue team that arrived from Tripoli was first delayed at the airport and then ambushed. It wasn’t a planned kidnapping. It was a planned murder.
And what everyone else seems to forget as well, is that if all had gone according to plan, the entire muslim uprising throughout the ME WOULD HAVE BEEN BLAMED ON ISRAEL.
You all know how obama loves to rub things in people’s faces. WHILE this was going on, obastard actually called Netanyahu on the phone and talked for an HOUR.
YOU asked me what I knew. I am telling you what I KNOW and no one seems to be paying attention.
They were SETTING ISRAEL UP! That was Plan A. Had Walid Shoebat not identified the so-called filmmaker, Israel would have borne the brunt of the US government’s anger for creating a video that was made at THE behest of our OWN government. Israel, and ultimately, Netanyahu, who is facing elections himself, would have been blamed for the death of Ambassador Stevens and Stevens would be out of the way because he was becoming antsy. Stevens KNEW he was going to be killed. He SAID so.
His name was on an al qaeda kill list. Retribution in kind for the killing of yahya al libi. But the administration’s hands would have been clean. They even tried to continue with the plan AFTER they were exposed.
Why do you think obastard gave that insane speech at the UN? It was to incite the muslims to even more violence and it had nothing to do with being reelected because at the time, he wasn’t sure he would be and he was tying up loose ends as fast as he could.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

does benghazi rhyme with crazy?

some, if a bit heavily tinfoiled, are saying this was a hub of another pointedly pointless gunrunning operation and big ears was vainly trying to keep it under wraps by muting the military response to benghazi getting attacked.

Nobody cares. Not the media. Not the American people. Not even the Congress. Just a few of us nut-jobs out here in the cloud.
