Obama’s embassy cover story dissolves
The Washington Post ^ | 9/21/12 | Jennifer Rubin

Posted on 09/21/2012 10:04:58 AM PDT by Lakeshark

It is a measure of how skewed the reporting is and how intellectually inconsistent is most of the “analysis” from the mainstream media that while Mitt Romney’s comment on the embassy attacks held the attention of the press for days (when in fact he had correctly surmised that the administration was trying to make excuses for the embassy attack by expressing regret over an anti-Muslim video)), there has been comparatively little concern with a much more critical story: Did the Obama team intentionally lie to voters (or just shoot first and aim later) for a week about what it knew, and did the deaths of four Americans result, in part, from defective security and preparation at the Benghazi consulate?
**snip**
There is, as always, a media scandal here, a deliberate effort, conservatives believe, to construct narratives that favor the president. But that is small potatoes compared with the mounting evidence of a scandal in the Obama administration. If the administration was negligent in planning, convinced of its own spin (the war on terror is over!) and politicized national security to aid the president's reelection campaign, that is all a big deal. In any event, it should make for an interesting foreign policy presidential debate.

this graphic is copyrighted - but someone needs to make a graphic of a flying white flag - being raised ala Iwo Jima, with obamam and hitlery doing the raising...words on flag: "Forgive U.S."

One picture is worth - it would get the attention of even the densest.

There’s one question I haven’t heard raised by anyone: Why was Ambassador Stevens in Libya and who ordered him there? What was the original purpose of his visit?

Has anyone heard any explanation as to why he was there?

Yeah, well.

The lie has already circled the world about 58 times.

The truth finally limps up to the podium today.

Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered on 12 September. Today is 21 September. Nine days the MSM was able to help Obama keep the truth under wraps.

Pfui.

I was wondering this morning, could there be, maybe there is, a COUP going on inside his administration. Have some of them finally said "Enough" of this lying bastard. Possible?

Obama is still holding onto the "Film" to blame, but others in the WH are saying differently.

Seems there are others who question Chris Stevens assignment and unfortunate demise. Found the following comment on another site very interesting:

Is this what really happened to Ambassador Chris Stevens?

There’s a lot of weirdness and unanswered (and unasked) questions circulating around the recent tragedy in Benghazi. For instance: What is a top diplomat–an ambassador–doing in Benghazi? That’s like wondering around East Palo Alto after dark with a sign on you saying “fat wallet, unarmed.” And ambassadors don’t travel “in the hold of cargo ships” to enter a country like his public bio has stated. Why was he in Benghazi in a regular unarmored car? Engineers in Iraq rode around in up armored cars and they’re no where near as important as an ambassador. Why did the SEAL protecting him state just a couple weeks earlier in an interview on ABC that he was “rounding up weapons in Libya?” Security detail do NOT double as weapons collection. And why did Sean Smith, one of the two SEALs, just minutes before his death, post a message on a gaming site that he might not live past the night?

Is this what’s really going on. . ?

Chris Stevens was not a pressed suit, pencil pushing, clean hands diplomat. He was a high level CIA operative. During the Arab Spring, Obama signed authorization to aid the Libyan rebels. He made it very public that this was not aid, it was approval to send aid. Any actual aid would be classified. And we heard nothing more on the question of aid since then.

Chris Stevens was the CIA operative in charge of funding the Libyan rebels (who used Benghazi as a stonghold) and equiping them with arms. Now fast forward to today. As a matter of routine or as a special case the US now needs to round up the weapons it distributed. It would be a tragic embarrassment to have Americans in Libya killed by weapons issued by America. Other operatives gather the weapons in a place in Benghazi. The Libyans want to deal with the man himself who brokered the original deal not his “delegate” for “security” reasons. So Stevens gets a short notice call while in Europe that he needs to get to Libya ASAP. He flies into an undisclosed location and gets in an unarmored car to not attract attention. Something goes wrong with the deal and he is transfered to a consulate “safe house” which is nothing more elaborate than a rental house with burglar bars on the window. He and his security detail are inside and Sean Smith notices that cops are taking pictures of the exits (very strange and alarming) and posts his situation on the gaming website not because he has a hankering for some gaming but because he sees his situation is very bad and this is the only way (or the established way) to get a message out.

Rockets hit. The SEALS die. Stevens dies of smoke inhalation. Then the attackers make a phone call to the organizers that the riots should now begin (Stevens died very shortly before the riots began. Coincidence? You would expect him to die after they started since the violence in the protests is blamed as the cause of his death.)

And now we’ve learned that the State Department has been in negotiations with Egypt to release Omar Abdel Rahman–the blind sheik responsible for the first World Trade Center bombing. Would this have been another appeasement to the Muslim Brotherhood had not the story been broken? (Since the story broke, a group of congressmen have issued an unequivical warning to the State Department that they should not and will not release the blind sheik.)

What’s going on here?

If your scenario is true, then it sounds as if he was lured to his death, but by whom?

***It would be a tragic embarrassment to have Americans in Libya killed by weapons issued by America.*** F&F 2.0

IMO, Chris Stevens was not “murdered” or “killed.” He was ASSASSINATED.

He was a high level CIA operative.

I am assuming you have a reliable source for such an unequivocal statement. I'm not saying that Stevens was not a spook, but to state it in such stark terms seems to draw a conclusion that is at least a little beyond the evidence.

Follow the trail from Holder and his staff to Gitmo terror subject who was sprung in 2007 by Jennifer Daskal who is currently working in Justice. Does she still have his phone number? Crazy stuff:

Holder’s former firm, Covington & Burling represented 14 Gitmo detainees. Still looking to see which ones:
“Guantanamo Bay Detainees
We currently represent fourteen men detained at the United States Naval Station at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Most of the men have been detained for approximately eight years and none have been charged with any crimes. Following the decision by the Supreme Court in Boumediene v. Bush, 128 S. Ct. 2229 (2008), holding that the privilege of the writ of habeas corpus extends to detainees held at Guantánamo Bay, we are challenging the legality of our clients’ detentions in habeas proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. Of the seven cases that have gone to merits hearings thus far, Covington has won four, lost two, and is awaiting a decision in one other. Two prior clients were released without a hearing.
The firm has been involved in the Guantánamo related litigation for the last six years. In addition to the on-going habeas corpus proceedings, our efforts have included: bringing cases for review of enemy combatant classification decisions in the D.C. Circuit under the Detainee Treatment Act of 2005; challenging the destruction of CIA torture tapes in federal court; filing amicus briefs and coordinating the amicus effort in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld, 548 U.S. 557 (2006); filing amicus briefs in support of Supreme Court review in Moussaoui v. United States, 382 F.3d 483 (4th Cir.), cert denied, 544 U.S. 931 (2005); challenging the government’s practice of redacting information from documents given to security-cleared habeas counsel; and challenging the abusive medical and living conditions that the detainees experience at Guantánamo.”
http://www.cov.com/probonooverview/probono.aspx?show=morehighlights
I believe the CCR represented him. The CCR has strong ties to Covington & Burling:
“And then there is the Center for Constitutional Rights, a Marxist organization that for years has coordinated legal representation for terrorists detained at Guantanamo Bay. The CCR has been attempting to convince Germany, France, Spain, and other countries to file war-crime indictments against former Bush administration officials, including President Bush, Vice President Cheney, and Secretary Rumsfeld. In representing America’s enemies, CCR has collaborated with many private lawyers, who also volunteered their services — several of whom are now working in the Obama Justice Department. Indeed, Holder’s former firm boasts that it still represents 16 Gitmo detainees (the number was previously higher). And, for help shaping detainee policy, Holder recently hired Jennifer Daskal for DOJ’s National Security Division — a lawyer from Human Rights Watch with no prior prosecutorial experience, whose main qualification seems to be the startling advocacy she has done for enemy combatants
 
http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/228146/eric-holders-hidden-agenda/andrew-c-mccarthy
Jennifer Daskal
Jennifer Daskal is an American lawyer who serves as senior counsel for Human Rights Watch, and focuses on issues of terrorism, criminal law and immigration.[1][2] She is also currently a political hire at the Department of Justice, which is seeking to prosecute terror suspects through the criminal justice system instead of through military tribunals.[3][4]
A graduate of Harvard Law School, Cambridge and Brown University and a Marshall Scholar,[5] Daskal garnered attention after traveling to the countries to which Guantanamo captives have been released, to verify that those countries are abiding by the undertakings they made to the US Government to respect the returned captives’ human rights.[6]
On February 23, 2010, the New York Post reported that Daskal, Neal Katyal, and three other lawyers who had worked on behalf of the civil rights of Guantanamo captives, had been serving on the Obama administration’s task force reviewing the status of the remaining Guantanamo captives.[7] The paper had first questioned her appointment to the Department of Justice’s National Security Division, in July 2009, and then again in January 2010

DOJ Lawyers Who Represented Terrorism Suspects Detainees Are Identified
Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010
Fox News has identified the seven anonymous Justice Department lawyers who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects.
Justice Department spokesman Matthew A. Miller confirmed the names to Fox News’ Mike Levine, but did not say whether any of the seven previously anonymous lawyers now work on issues related to Guantánamo detainees.
“Each of the nine people referenced in the letter filed legal briefs that are available by using something as simple as Google,” Miller told Fox News. “We will not participate in an attempt to drag people’s names through the mud for political purposes.”
Miller said “politics has overtaken facts and reality” in the battle over the lawyers’ identities. (Full statement below)
The current Justice Department employees who previously represented Guantánamo detainees or terrorism suspects are:
·         Tony West, the Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Division.
·         Jonathan Cedarbaum, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
·         Eric Columbus, senior counsel in the Office of the Deputy Attorney General.
·         Karl Thompson, of the Office of Legal Counsel.
·         Joseph Guerra, Principal Deputy Associate Attorney General.
·         Tali Farhadian, an official in the Office of the Attorney General.
·         Beth Brinkmann, Deputy Assistant Attorney General in the Civil Division.
Two other DOJ lawyers — Principal Deputy Solicitor General Neal Katyal and National Security Division Attorney Jennifer Daskal – also formerly represented detainees, but their identities had already been known.
In response to the DOJ confirmation, Keep America Safe spokesman Aaron Harison said the organization still wants information on which of the lawyers works on detainee issues within the DOJ.
“The American people have a right to know whether lawyers who voluntarily flocked to Guantanamo to take up the cause of the terrorists are currently working on detainee issues in President Obama’s Justice Department,” Harison said. (Full statement below)
Details about the DOJ lawyers’ involvement in Guantánamo detainee cases are available in the article, which also points out that the Justice Department hired several lawyers who represented Guantánamo detainees during the George W. Bush administration

The facts are pretty clear, an article by ABC stating one of the SEALS two weeks earlier was in country looking for weapons, admission they were not security, traveling in light vehicle. Pretty clear they were meeting someone.

I don’t disagree with you outright, but some clarifications:

1. SEALs on site were not SEALs. They were private contractors whom were once Navy SEALs. They were detailed by the State Dept. to find ground-to-air missiles. They had been fairly successful in this effort.

2. Those SEALs were not his security detail.

3. Sean Smith was a USAF Communications Spec., not a SEAL. He was Stevens’ comms guy.

4. You don’t make your CIA man the Ambassador. But Sean Smith could have been the active CIA man on scene. Which is why he was there. It’s possible, but not a definite.

5. All four of these men were not protected because Hillary Clinton is not a smart person. There was, apparently, no security detail for Stevens; neither in Bengahzi, nor Tripoli.

6. Steven’s State Dept. rise/career has been public. He’s in the diplomatic corps and his trip to Libya was pretty well publicized after Hillary swore him in her self.

7. Sean Smith posted that comment on his game because that is how he communicates with the CIA handler... and his buddies in the game. It’s a two-fer!

8. I believe that Stevens never made it to the safe house. From what I understand.

Summary: So why would an Ambassador, a weapons destruction team, and a comms guy (God knows, maybe the CIA man) be in the Bengahzi Consulate at 10PM on 9/11?

A very private and important meeting about a cache of missiles.

Which it turns out was an ambush.

I was wondering about this the other day. Is it possible that U.S. intelligence, or even the State Department itself, received information about some specific threat to the embassy in Tripoli, and then decided to secretly relocate Stevens to the mission in Benghazi as a precaution, where he’d be safer, if no one knew about the move. And doing so under the radar, by not taking a substantial security force for protection.

Then it turns out that the intel was a ruse by AlQueda, to cause the move to happen, knowing they could more easily get to Stevens in that place.

And the state department fell for it hook, line and sinker, leading to the attack and his assassination. Something like that would cause the administration to deny it was a planned attack, and for obvious reasons. They would look pretty stupid, and also responsible.

You get all sorts of points for coming up with a creative concept that I like, but, regrettably, it would have been safer to stick him in Malta than put him in Benghazi.

President Nixon was run out of office because his administration supposedly lied and covered-up a bungled attempt to look at some Democrat documents.
The Obama administration has been lying and covering-up over their incompetence which resulted in the deaths of four Americans including a United States Ambassor who represented all of us.
Which is worse, sneaking a peek at some Democrat papers or gross incompetence that results in four dead Americans?
Obama and Clinton need to go and they need to go immediately. Where is the Washington Post front page on this? Where are Woodward and Bernstein? Where is Robert Redford?

Yes, but was he suppose to be there that evening and spend the night? Or was he suppose to come the next morning?

I know one thing for certain. We are not getting the real story, and if the administration is responsible somehow, that would sure explain Obama and Hillary being so hell bent on laying blame on that video. If it is just then assumed by everyone that the video did it, then the story would end there.

You got it. The Administration’s cover is blown; and now the back-up story is not fully answering the right questions.

You take what’s known and then you look for the simple answer.

1. Clearly, Stevens felt safe enough on 9/11 at 9:30PM to be at the Consulate with just 3 other “known” Americans.
2. The media has not interviewed, or identified, any of the other employees of the Consulate that were “saved” that night and taken to the safe house.

Interesting that no one has asked them what happened or interviewed them.

I’m reminded of Camp Chapman, Dec 2009. I don’t think it’s complicated.

The way you get the MSM to cover you is the way Newt did it. You go into “Meet The Press”, “Face the nation”, “Madcow”, etc. and you challenge the hosts that are grilling you. You put them on the defensive.

But why is Romney quiet? He should be raking Obama over the coal over this. Talk about a failure to “connect the dots”!

My theory is that Romney and Obama play for the same team.
