Exclusive: Benghazi Whistleblower Says He Was Smeared
Daily Beast ^ | 11/01/2013 | Eli Lake, Josh Rogin

Posted on 11/03/2013 5:30:52 AM PST by Rusty0604

A leaked memo appears to undermine significant details in a new book from a witness to the embassy attacks. But its alleged author tells The Daily Beast he didn't write it.

The debate over the Obama administration’s actions before and after the attack on the U.S. mission was reignited following an Oct. 27 60 Minutes report featuring an interview with Morgan Jones

Controversy over Jones’s interview and book reached a high pitch on Oct. 31 when The Washington Post published details of an incident report allegedly written by Jones that contradicts the account in his book and reveals his real name, Dylan Davies. “I am just a little man against some big people here,” Davies said. “They can do things, make up things, anything they want, I wouldn’t stand a chance.” Davies said he did not know who leaked the report to the Post but said he suspected it was the State Department, an allegation that could not be independently corroborated

Davies was angry that his real name was published by The Washington Post and was not redacted in the Blue Mountain Group incident report leaked to the media, even though the report redacted other names. “It means I won’t work in the industry again and I can be tracked down pretty quickly with that name,” he said.

Davies said he believed there was a coordinated campaign to smear him. This week, Media Matters, a progressive media watchdog, sent a public letter to CBS News asking it to retract the 60 Minutes Benghazi piece on the basis of the Washington Post article. On the Fox News Channel, reporter Adam Housley claimed on air this week that Davies asked for money in exchange for an interview. Davies denied this charge. 60 Minutes has stood by its reporting.

Sarcasm in the internet is a subtle art. It really does not work with flag draped coffins.

Not sarcasm. Note the quotation marks. Words spoken by the president himself.

Muslim Brotherhood operatives have direct access to the White House. An Egyptian magazine exposed Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in the Obama administration, as Obama continues to appoint Muslim enemy operatives to key US govt posts.

========================================

Not to mention this bombshell. 2016 Prez wanabee Hilly and hubby Billy employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist at their do-good tax exempt foundation.

Gehad el-Haddad
(The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")

A senior Muslim Brotherhood official employed by the William J. Clinton Foundation was arrested in Cairo, charged with inciting violence. Gehad el-Haddad served as one of the Muslim Brotherhood’s top communications officials; he was a top Brotherhood official and adviser to Barack Obama's hand-picked Egyptian candidate, Morsi (now deposed).

Gehad el-Haddad served for five years as a top official at the Clinton Foundation, a tax-exempt do-good foundation founded by former President Bill Clinton. El-Haddad pushed the Muslim Brotherhood’s Islamist agenda in the foreign press, where he was often quoted defending the Brotherhood’s crackdown on civil liberties in Egypt.

Gehad became the public face of the Islamist terrorist organization soon after leaving his post at the Clinton Foundation.

Much of Gehad's official terroristic-type work was done AT THE SAME TIME he was employed by the Clintons' tax-exempt.

====================================================

AIN'T KARMA A *ITCH, HILLARY?...... as Americans were under attack (and killed) in Benghazi we learned later that the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, WAS in the region but was not deployed. Americans were lied to----we were told Kearsarge was not available to help endangered Americans in Benghazi. Read on.

MILITARY.COM EXCERPT---During the Egyptian crisis when Morsi was deposed, US Pentagon officials declined to give specifics on conversations between DOD's Chuck Hagel and Egyptian Gen al-Sisi who had launched a victorious assault on Muslim terrorists.

Although US officials would not discuss the specifics of the military- to-military talks, the U.S. would need Gen al-Sisi's approval to move through Egyptian air space if Washington decided to send Marines to aid in the evacuation of U.S. personnel.

About 550 Marines and their tilt-rotor MV-22 Osprey aircraft are at bases in Spain and Italy on standby if they are needed. A Navy Amphibious Ready Group with 4,000 Marines and sailors aboard, led by the helicopter assault ship Kearsarge, was also in the region following completion of the Eager Lion training exercises in Jordan. © Copyright 2013 Military.com.

==============================================

As one FReeper insightfully posted: Obombno/Hilly did nothing to help our guys in Benghazi b/c all signs point to a sinister plot, and collusion with Al Qaeda.

A pre-planned kidnapping was in progress....so they thought. The two stupids were duped----tricked by Al Qaeda, or similar terrorist group, who supplanted the original kidnappers.

Explains Hillary’s odd comment upon hearing what happened....... and why the O/admin conspired w/ MSM presstitutes to do a major coverup for months.

KEEP IN MIND---Onono AND Hilly are buddy-buddy w/ Muslim terrorists. Here's who has the ear of our Muslim president.

Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development; Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council; Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference; Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC); Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA); and Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama's Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

Will be a sweet irony to have Jarret's comment about how it would be payback time once Zero was reinstated into the WH come back to bite them...

The Democrats are so concerned with personal security that they can’t possibly let anyone interview or know the names of the people at the second facility at Benghazi. But, they’ll release this guy’s real name.

He spoke those words over flag draped coffins? I missed that. Of course, I know the “phoney scandals” meme. Unless he actually used it in the presence of the coffins, I question using that somber image with his spew.

This serves to lower the credibility of all who want to report her creation of the Lost Cause Outpost in Benghazi that Hilary created by installing a homosexual element that went on to cost four lives.

Moslems don’t believe in freedom of the press, but they do believe in destroying or killing people.

Lindsey Graham was talking about this today on Fox and the selective leak against the Brit—he wants to see the FBI’s interview of the guy done a day or two after the attack. Of course the Obama administration is refusing to release it.
