Benghazi-Gate: A Timeline of Government Deceit, Deception, and Outright Lies
Breitbart ^ | 09/29/2012 | John Nolte

Posted on 09/29/2012 5:28:03 PM PDT by nhwingut

Late yesterday afternoon, in an obvious attempt to rescue President Obama from what could and should be a brutal round of Sunday shows examining the cover up the White House is currently engaged in with respect to the sacking of our consulate in Libya, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (DNI) released a statement revising its assessment of the attack. It is now the official position of the American intelligence community that what happened in Benghazi was a pre-planned terrorist attack. [SNIP]

And this, my friends, is how a cover up works.

And so, the only response to this cynical muddying of the waters is a 30,000 foot approach that might help connect some dots.

Standing on the shoulders of those who have done the admirable work of digging into and investigating this story (most notably, Brett Baier of Fox News, Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, Jake Tapper of ABC News, and the Daily Beast's Eli Lake), what I want to do is lay out a timeline of known facts that answer a very simple question:

What did our government know and what were we told when they knew it?

What you'll see below was inspired by the vitally important video-report Brett Baier closed "Special Report" with last night, but this will hopefully go into even greater detail. We'll also look into three specific areas: 1) Security failures. 2) The lies. 3) The attempted cover up of numbers one and two.

As Huckabee just said on his show... Nixon resigned over a cover up and lie. Clinton was impeached over a cover up and lie.

This is becoming huge!

Romney campaign’s former foreign policy aide just tweeted...

@RichardGrenell I’m hearing from reporters that the Obama campaign & the WhiteHouse are in panic mode over Libya & proactively calling reporters to spin.

The opportunities lost to take out the perpetrators. The failure to act as if the zer0 administration actually gave a happy. The news, if a real president was in office, would have been America retaliated and took out those who did the deed. Opportunities were lost, because of a failure to respond. To me this confirms, zer0 had to be dragged into taking out bin laden. zer0 didn’t want to do it. zer0 never wants to do anything except help the enemy. hilary is the same way. The enemy means more to the zer0 crowd than do Americans or American lives. Has been confirmed over and over and over. And the media still shrills for this zer0 crowd.

Thank you for posting this. Why was Stevens sent to Benghazi in the first place? There is no way Obama, Clinton or Rice would ever be going to Benghazi, so why did they send the ambassador?

And why would the ‘sos’ be sent to an internet game site? Was there nobody else to call for help?

Good! But how exactly can they spin it? Even with the reluctance of the US press to tell the truth about anything relating to Obama, it’s getting out; for one thing, I don’t think the underlings are interested in taking the fall for him again.

The only way the press can really “spin” it is by refusing to cover it altogether, which was really pretty close to what they did (it was on the front page for exactly two days, along with Egypt, and the attack on Camp Bastion never even made it to the front page).

The government tells us in order to keep safe from Al-Qaeda...we need to give up some freedoms, privacy... increased security, domestic surveillance and massive spending to DHS.

Yet they have done business with them in Libya and now possibly Syria.

Exactly. This could have legs. If GOP grows some balls. They need to declare emergency hearings. Even the lib media knows this is huge and can’t brush it off. The only way it dies is if the GOP lets it die.

There is no way he can get elected if this grows into a scandal. It’s an October surprise. The guy went to vegas and partied on the very next night The optics are devastating.

FOX News is doing some serious news reporting on this, Baier was huge. Catherine ??? was on hannity and she was great.

The US press will either have to drop all pretense of being an “objective observer and reporter of the facts” and have O-B-A-M-A tattooed on their foreheads, or they begin to read the writing on the wall and become journalists once again... they can’t have it both ways...

Sounds like a modified limted hang out...

PRESIDENT: You think, you think we want to, want to go this route now? And the--let it hang out, so to speak?

DEAN: Well, it's, it isn't really that--

HALDEMAN: It's a limited hang out.

DEAN: It's a limited hang out.

EHRLICHMAN: It's a modified limited hang out.

PRESIDENT: Well, it's only the questions of the thing hanging out publicly or privately.

Yep, definitely a modified limited hang out.

So I guess the Director of Intelligence is the fall guy.
He resigns and Odumba is off the hook. The MSM will push
how promptly, our Prez acted in accepting his resignation.

Case Closed. Romney should have jumped on this a week ago.

The US was hit by another terrorist attack and the Zero administration and his propaganda arm (the “news” media) do not want it going on record that a terrorist attack happened on Zero’s watch.

Obama will not be impeached for this or any other violation of the laws he’s committed.Though if there were any President that deserved impeachment kit would definetly be him.

Perhaps the Press should tell President Obama that the Genie is out of the bottle about the current terrorist attack, and it would be best if the White House says nothing at all.

If it weren’t for Catherine Herridge this wouldn’t even be a story. She IS the fact-finding Goddess of intelligence/foreign affairs matters.

At the same time they were all speaking before they had the facts, they were out claiming that Romney was speaking before he had all the facts. Guess which one the mainstream media pointed out.

Obama speaks - they follow

No love lost between the Clinton gang and Oblamer posse... This story needs to grow legs.
Legs that rid us of both 'Long-legged MacDaddy' and 'Cankles' forever.


Let the blame games begin!
Pass the popcorn...
