Did Obama stage the Benghazi attack?
Impeach Obama ^ | 10/15/2012 | CO Jones

Posted on 10/15/2012 2:40:22 PM PDT by mgist

I received a phone call from an old friend that has been in Washington D.C. for years and is fairly well-connected politically. What she told me was ugly and sinister, yet very compelling. She said she had received information from someone high up in White House circles, and wanted my thoughts. No, there is no leaked email, no concrete proof, and this article is based on “hearsay.” I’m not one that usually engages in or repeats hearsay, but if this is true, it could be the biggest story in 50 years. According to her, Barack Obama, wanting an “October Surprise,” had secretly arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood for a kidnapping of our ambassador. Then sometime in October before the election Obama was to orchestrate some great military action to rescue Ambassador Stevens, causing all of America to cheer Obama’s strong foreign policy and bravery and making him look like a hero. After all, his supposed killing of Osama Bin Laden bounce had long since faded. Thus, sweeping him to victory in November. Imagine the headlines and talking points. The election would be a lock. The Muslim Brotherhood has every reason to want Obama re-elected in November and have an American President sympathetic to their causes. Not to mention an administration filled with Muslim appeasers. Therefore, they agreed to aid in these theatrics. Unfortunately for Ambassador Stevens and three others, the Brotherhood could not control the hired thugs that were to perform the kidnapping and things escalated and four American lives were lost. Panic set in at the White House and with little time to place blame as far away from Obama as they could, they settled on a ridiculous fairy tale about an irrelevant video posted four months prior on YouTube and ran with it. Barack Obama even ran with it after evidence showed he knew better and ran with it all the way to his speech at the U.N.

So now, they are admitting it was a terrorist attack. They are admitting that the State Department had denied requests for more security from Washington, but nobody told them. Blame anyone but Barack Obama. I’m betting the White House is smirking and perfectly happy to be accused of having a breakdown in communication as opposed to the alternative. This scenario, if true, more than satisfies my common sense gland. Photo Credit: osipovva

This would actually explain a lot. Like all the money sent to the Muslim Brotherhood prior to the attack, and why they refused to send additional security.

This is not merely an internet meme. Pundits from Newt Gingrich to Rudy Giulliani and others are delving into this theory as possible to probable.

Me? I totally believe this is real. This is THE biggest scandal since Fast and Furious. Bigger than any of the Clinton scandals. Bigger than Watergate.

If they don’t want people making over the top, wild accusations, they had better come up with a plausible explanation of their own.

So far I have not heard ANYTHING that explains the lack of security at our embassy in Libya on 9/11.

I don’t believe it, unless some proof comes forward. Obama is not that smart, or evil. He’s simply a doofus and puppet. As for sending money to the Muslim Brotherhood, we all know he loves to spend other people’s money on his pet likes. And he probably ok’d giving weapons to the islamic rebels. That is what he should be held accountable for, besides not protecting our people.

Obama would be that stupid. Yes indeedy.

But I agree, this is very dubious. We have to beware of wishful thinking.

If someone can deliver some real evidence, I’ll be the first to do my mea culpa. But until the evidence surfaces, we should not be sending this viral.

But Obama would indeed be stupid enough to do something like this. It’s not so much being stupid as being arrogant and thinking he could pull something like this off.

Arrogance make you stupid.

Tall tale.

The attack happened on 911, was wide spread in several countries, we never heard from the Muzzy Bro’s regarding their grievance about some not even obscure movie.

It was the White Hut who promulgated this BS.

Oh, and there has quite a bit of unrest in the ME over the last year.

Keep in mind that the person who was responsible for the contract for security high tailed it out of there a few hours before the attack.

The contact person/address for the British security firm is a GSA office with an employee as the contact.

There is more to the security story ..and the State department ignored the complaints about the firm.

I want to know if that person is a Muzzie.

Not enough cicumstantial evidence to get me going on this one.

Now, two of Obama’s homosexual lovers turning up dead in unsolved murders, not just one.. but two, and Obama’s grandmother turning up dead ON election night 2008 who happened to have had access to SS numbers of deceased people while she was living in Hawaii (which is probably where Obama got the SS number now stamped on the ID he’s carrying around in his wallet), now THAT is suspicious and worthy of serious investigation.

Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani tells CNN’s Soledad O’Brien that there was a cover-up by President Obama and the administration regarding Libya consulate attack.

Giuliani says, “The cover-up of Benghazi, I mean, is startling.”

O’Brien says, “So the White House now is basically saying the State Department dropped the ball…

I personally wouldn't put it past the Obama Regime to think up a bone-headed idea like this. It is very telling though that when there is blowback, they are doing everything in their power to make sure their Vaunted Leader is still clean as as a whistle.

My guess is that Hillary knows a lot more than she has said so far. And she does not want to be connected in any way with a capsized U.S.S. Obama.

When Romney wins, there will be fireworks.

well let’s see. Fast and Furious was a Obummer / Holder staged event to run guns to Mexico, resulting in expected deaths in Mexico, so this Administration could assault the 2nd amendment.

against the backdrop of F&F, is this scenario really that far fetched?

It doesn't explain the overwhelming, uncontrolled use of force to perform a planned kidnapping. What we have is an administration that wanted to fast track normalization, being naive about our enemies. When the SHTF, the infamous video was posited as a plausible cause, though reality bears out very clearly it was NOT the cause.

This alone is damning enough to eject this jerk and his sycophants from office. Do our elected representatives have the intestinal fortitude to do what is right? A few of them, yes. It's up to us to put more like them in office.

Could be, but the only thing that makes me think different is a decision to completely remove the security team a month in advance. On either count, you are brain dead stupid: a)pull the security team in a highly dangerous city where you probably should not have an embassy anyway, or b)try to pull off some outrageous stunt like this using his Islamic ties, which are everywhere in his administration. These folks are pretty brazen.

I have another thought. With her girlfriend Huma, Hillary is probably even closer to the Muslim Brotherhood than Obama. Could Hillary have baited Obama into trying this and then turn the tables on him??? There is certainly no love lost between the two. Then, after figuring out what Hillary probably did to him, he throws her under the bus along with the State Department. It is probably one of the things about in history where we will NEVER know the real truth. But it is awfully juicy and intriguing!!!!

I believe it because Obama is desperate. It is not “over the top” to seek all motives for the post attack actions of Obama and his minions in the administration. Hillary looked a total mess when she made an attempt to sing the talking points. The others were right on cue for 8 or 9 days. If something smells like rotted fish, look for the rotted fish.

It's a lot bigger than that.

The move is on to consolidate the Muslim world under the Muslim Brotherhood.

People still believe 0bama's foreign policy is simply bumbling and incompetence. Really?

0bama has set Israel up the bomb...

Sept. 11, 2012

Netanyahu gets the cold shoulder.

U.S. has no right to block Israel on Iran: Netanyahu

The embassy in Cairo puts out an apology for a movie most of the rioters know nothing about.

Former deputy national security adviser: US response to embassy attack ‘bizarre and unacceptable’

0bama sent a letter to Tehran assuring them that the U.S. will do nothing to help Israel. That takes that off of the table removing a big worry for them that might have made them think twice. Iran is good to go now with 0bama's blessing.

We don't support Israeli attack, US tells Iran

The "movie" turns out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Quite a day of unfortunate coincidences. Israel was rebuffed and there were signals being sent to the MB and Iran. 0bama is giving the "go ahead" to the Muslim world to take out Israel.

Obama Admin Transferred 3,000 Detainees to Afghan Gov't Control Day Before 9/11

UNREAL… Obama Invites Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President to Meet Next Week – Refuses to Meet Netanyahu

The White House hands Iran's Ahmadinejad a global megaphone

REPORTS: No Live Ammo for Marines

-------------------------------------------------------

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Congress was warned about Libya last month

-------------------------------------------------------

U.S. denies premeditation report
"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

Is that all incompetence? Or did it take planning to make all that happen?
Cloward & Pliven strategy and community organizing on a global scale?

This isn't just about getting re-elected, that's certainly a side benefit, this is about the big enchilada. No more Israel. The United States of the Muslim Brotherhood in the ME. ie the new Caliphate. U.S. and western influence castrated in much of the world.

And an example of why conservatism often “underperforms.”

Because it is full of kooks who waste time on fringy but juicy discussion topics, instead of the obvious.

Why not just stick with: Obama let Americans down, by not paying proper attention to the safety of Americans abroad?

There is a very simple theory that makes sense.

Obama was informed during the 6 hour attack.

Why promote the theory it was a protest? Because, otherwise it was a coordinated attack on a sovereign consulate, an act of war, on 9-11.

“We’re under attack, it’s an act of war. Would you consdier this response? Shall we stage men and material? What would you like to do Mr. President...?!?!”

Obama wanted to eat taco’s and go to bed early...so they labeled is a protest that got out of hand, said they needed more information. Obama slept well knowing the headlines around the would NOT be “Terrorist Attack on 9-11-12”.

The liberal media lapped up the cover story at the dog bowl for upwards of two weeks, the cover story worked, it squashed the truth for “long enough”.

Consider this assessment as it relates to the attack and communications:

Something about this smelled far more rotten to me from the start than the simple cover up. The video clip was too obscure and never in any of the intel briefs. I think this person is on to something. I think the story they told right away and kept pitching was preplanned before the attack. I also think that there was supposed to be protesters before the attack, but the bad guys changed the plan. Also, I read that after the bad guys had their way with the Ambassador, they took him to a hospital to keep him alive. Very out of character for them.
