Skip to comments.Did Obama deliberately try to stage a hostage taking in Benghazi as an “October Surprise”
Posted on 10/08/2012 5:34:49 PM PDT by RummyChick
Today Im going on the radio in Los Angeles to accuse the Obama administration of deliberately attempting to stage a hostage-taking in Benghazi as part of a manufactured October Surprise that Obama intended to make himself look great on the foreign stage in the lead up to the election. The plan if you were paying attention was set in motion at the Democrats convention in Charlotte in early September when repeated mentions of Obama as a foreign policy president were made. This was timed to lead up to September 11th
when deliberately lowered security at the Benghazi consulate (and OTHER consulates and embassies in the Mideast) was supposed to encourage Muslims to take Americans hostage like they did in 1979. Only, Obamas plan was to negotiate their quick released by trading the Blind Sheik from the 1993 World Trade Center bombings for any Americans taken hostage on 9/11/2001. The plan was to make Obama look like a badass and a to have him revel in this through October and into the November election. In fact, the hostages were probably planned for release not long before the Foreign Policy Debate (the last of the three presidential debates this year) in Boca Raton, Florida. This was supposed to show Obama standing up to Muslims, negotiating peace, and proving to the world what an effective and strong leader he was.
Only it blew up in his face and the administration has been in overdrive trying to cover this stuff up ever since. The only way any of this makes any sense, including the deliberate lowering of security and the disregard of Ambassador Chris Stevens multiple pleas for help on the ground in Libya in the weeks prior to his murder, is that Barack Obama WANTED a hostage situation to happen so he could look presidential by resolving it in October but the Muslims in Libya went overboard and killed people instead of just taking them hostage. This also explains why no effort was made to even look for the Ambassador and others missing from the consulate for many hours: Obamas gang just assumed he was taken hostage as planned and were STUNNED to learn the ambassador was murdered.
Why else would Obama go to sleep so casually at 3am that night if he didnt think things were just going according to plan but when he woke up at 11am the next day he found that all Hell broke loose instead. And then the coverup began.
Folks, more people are going to eventually go to jail for what happened at Benghazi than went to prison for Watergate. This is a coverup that goes directly to Barack Obama himself. I have friends who lived through Watergate and who repeatedly tell me they had no idea in the initial days after a break-in was reported in Democrat offices that it would eventually topple Nixon and bring down so many powerful people. I love the woman on a personal level, but if Hillary Clinton knew about any of this and didnt stop this scheme for a hostage-taking October Surprise then she belongs in prison too along with Barack Obama, Susan Rice, Valerie Jarrett, and a host of other women and effeminate men who thought lowering security at consulates so something would happen that we could use in October was a good idea.

Yup. Even the terrorists realized it was foolish to try and deal with Zer0's administration.
This makes sense. The truth will come out, if the whistleblowers and/or witnesses live long enough.
I relish the day when we can see Obama and Hillary go to prison,(but they won't).
Madam Hillary was very much involved bringing down Nixon. That wasn't very nice hillary, now it's your turn to squirm, and I am going to relish every minute.
NO one was killed or hurt in that Watergate nonsense, nothing but some scrap pieces of paper. You are one VILE & VICIOUS madwoman and you serve an even viler master Obama.
Except the media would have buried it.
I beg to differ: they are exactly stupid enough to try this.
It’s just the right kind of lightweight manipulative naive stunt that lightweight manipulative naive narcissists would try - not realizing they’re playing hardball with a pitcher more interested in knocking the batter out cold than throwing strikes.
Well, if he did try to stage a hostage taking as an October Surprise, and if I remember correctly, the last hostage taking situation in the middle east didn’t go so well for the incumbent Democrat.
I doubt that.
This will likely happen and be picked up by the MSM to the extent to confuse the hell out of what really happened..
9/11 Truthers are welcomed on their favorite "nonpartisan" radio program to make the claim that Mitt Romney asked George Bush and Dick Cheney to arrange to have Al Qaida attack the consulate in Benghazi "like you did to bring down the Towers". That was Romney's October surprise.
(I'm only slightly being sarcastic.. it could really happen.)
Sit back for a moment and think of some of the things that the CIA has pulled THAT WE KNOW ABOUT (no telling what we don’t know about) to overthrow a leader or destablize countries.
It is possible that another country planned this caper to target.......
I said this - in a reduced form - in a post about a week ago.
Let's not forget that we are dealing with Chicago Thugs here, they don't think much, just do what they have to do and pay someone to get them out of a jam.
May work this time too.
The blind sheik story strangely was in the news at the time. There were rumors that Obama was negotiating his release. The WH denied that there were any negotiations. I thought it was very odd that he would even discuss this so close to the election, so this scenario does make sense. Trading a dying sheik for young American “hostages” would not have resulted in a landslide.
Really....whatever happened to IMHO? Let's be civil in our disagreements of one another. It does set us apart from the etcha sketch crowd...respect, patience, understanding and friendly dialogue is what we should be about. Even in disagreement. Especially in disagreement!!!! The socialist, marxist, communists kill if you don't agree...We smile graciously, nod and then quietly dismiss that which we do not agree with...without smacking the other down in a public forum.
Sorry...I still open doors for women too.
I didn’t know the sheik was terminally ill. But that sort of thing didn’t work out too well politically for the Brits when they let the PanAm bomber go back to Libya.
I just hope that President Romney can scrape the scum off the walls of government offices. There are a lot of sick pukes living off the the work of people like me and you.
I couldn’t be most disgusted. We the people do a great job of supplying the % of earnings, and then we send it in to D.C. where it gets totally ‘ucked up...on purpose and by inconceivable incompetence.
My daughter deals with government incompetence - she has to because of a health situation she has but she can barely stand the culture among her co-workers. if you’re anything from stupid to a narcissistic megamaniac - get a government job.
In what alternate universe would trading the blind sheik be considered badass? Threatening to kill every muslim in Gitmo and bury then in Cuban sandwiches would be badass.
The US State Department is actively negotiating with Egyptian President Morsi’s government about transferring Omar Abdel-Rahman from US custody to Egyptian custody.
Rahman, also known as “the Blind Sheikh,” is currently serving a life sentence in the US for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. But Egypt is pushing for his release for “humanitarian and health” reasons.
The Department of Justice says the possibility of release is ruled out by the fact that Rahman is serving a life sentence. But an unnamed official within the Obama administration has said the custody exchange is being considered regardless.
Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy believes the deal to release Rahman has already been reached by the administration, and they are just waiting until after the election to announce it. McCarthy believes this is why the DOJ so strongly ruled out Rahman’s “release” but said nothing against his “transfer.”
McCarthy was lead prosecutor in Rahman’s case.
Or Fast & Furious, or illegal campaign contributions, or overturn Federal Laws without Congress' consent, or make illegal recess appointments or wage War on Libya without consent of Congress, or help oust an American ally in Egypt to make Egypt an enemy controlled by Muslim extremists, or let our classified drone fall into Iranian hands with absolutely no attempt to retrieve or destroy it, or sabotage a BP oil rig to justify shutting down America's conventional oil industry.. $5/gallon gas anyone?
Or childishly lying about Fast & Furious ("Bush did it!")? Or childishly lying about the murders in Benghazi? Or refusing to prosecute polling-place intimidation? Or "just-wait-until-after-the-election" secretly caving to the Russian prime minister? The list of OUTRAGEOUS things this jerk has done is endless! Sadly, it is quite evident that no vile thing is beyond him - or unbelievable.
Uh, aren't you giving these clowns too much credit? Remember, the author is posing that BO staged a stunt that FAILED. Doesn't take a lot of intelligence to plan a failure.
The plan was to have Stevens taken hostage and held until the day Romney was sworn in. That way they could blame Romney and the repubs of collaborating with the terrorist, just like they did Reagan with the original “October Surprise”.
If you listen to Hillary in her statement were she claimed it was spontaneous because of the video, she also implies someone planned the attack wanting to hurt the Obama administration.
This attack was to set Hillary up to run against Romney in 2016.
