Fast & Furious for the Second Amendment.
Benghazi for the election win.
As interesting as this sounds, I don’t think Zer0 or any of his fellow window lickers have enough intelligence to plan something as stupid as this.
Wow. Just wow!
To the headline: would not surprise me.
Wildly implausible scenario. Trading the blind Sheik would have turned into a 48-state landslide against Zero.
this story is right on!
With Obama, ANYTHING is possible..but now that he screwed up, he can go on and on about how Bin Laden was killed on his watch..all Romney has to do is bring up how Obama has the blood of 4 Americans on his hands, killed on HIS watch
It does look suspicious.
I think the writer has compiled a ton of evidence and arrived at the only possible explanation for the Libya disaster.
Instead of going on the radio to discuss, he should go straight to a prosecutor and present the evidence.
A hostage taking would be done stealthily by a streamlined special ops team, not by 150-200 fanatics armed with mortars and RPGs.
Seems plausible...Not 100% sold, yet thank you for laying out what I need to look for in the upcoming BS storm. With everything we know about the purple lipped prince so far, this is not full blown tin foil data. More pieces could put credence to this, IMHO.
They could have planned something, but as we know, it went down really bad. Sounds consistant with the incompetence of this regime.
Correction: Benghazi for the First Amendment! Remember that 0bama was CONSTANTLY BLAMING THE MOVIE.
remember that releasing the Blind Terrorist was on the table..and then the WH denied it.
Oh' Wait...the plan failed...
Seriously, this "conspiracy" is pretty far out there...I need to dig my tin foil hat out closet...to adsorb the possibilities
“Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.”
And Barky’s got wheelbarrows full of stupid.
Part of me perversely wants to see zero getting re-elected if and only if it included the subsequent impeachment, trial and conviction on capital offenses.
People in Libya and in the CIA are sitting on an October surprise. May God grant them the fortitude, courage, and safety to do the right thing.
I simply can’t bring myself to believe this. I disagree with Obama on every level, but I don’t think he would do something like this.
Agreed. Then he would have been negotiating with terrorists.
I disagree with the sentiment that prison time is coming for participants in the scheme or coverup. The 0bama regime has a Teflon coating slicker than slick Willy and never hesitate to use paper shredders or computers that are 'off the network'. Hell, they meet with lobbyists off premises in order to keep it 'unofficial business' right?
Ever heard of Operation Northwoods.
Don’t underestimate your government.
SOMETHING planned by someone in our government went horribly wrong. It’s unclear what that something is...I can’t come to a confident guess.
I do think that his supposed journal showing up several days later is a plant. Maybe someone found in journal in his house and then planted it or maybe it was manufactured.
I am wondering if CIA is trying to get rid of Obama by releasing info.
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?
I think HillBuzz decided that we just really need a "conservative" website with more crack-smoking idiocy than Wing Nut Daily.
While this might actually seem plausible due almost entirely to our evaluations of his incredibly poor performance, I think that this is below his stupidity pay grade. Forget about what could go wrong. What here could possibly go *right*?
Dujan’s fantasy is just too lame.
Sure Obama wanted to exploit 9-11 to remind everyone that Obama was a big man because he didn’t wet when special forces killed bin Ladin. The last thing his handlers would want is a volatile hostage crisis that would put his entire Middle East policy under the microscope and evoke the ghost of Jimmie Carter. Exchanging the Blind Sheik for hostages would give his opponents an enormous stick to beat him with.
Just commenting on the guy’s assertions. Whether they’re valid or not is another thing. I’m not a fan of WND for what that’s worth.
I think this article is right about part of it. I truly believe it was a kidnapping and the kidnappers were going to ask for the blind sheik in return. I think Obama was not in on the plan, but made a quick decision to try and rescue the ambassador so he didn’t resemble Carter, and it all went to hell. Don’t forget that there are somewhere between 20 and 40 witnesses that were either rescued from the embassy or were doing the rescuing. One is in Walter Reed. Where are the rest?
WE think that trading the blind sheik would be a landslide against zero but remember...they have the media on their side and have reason to expect that such things will work in their favor. After all, who is in major trouble for fast and furious yet?
Are we to believe he threw in sodomy for good measure? WTF?
“What here could possibly go *right*?”
Reminds me of this quote by a deep undercover DEA about Fast and Furious
“If I were a criminal profiler, it wouldn’t take much to identify a CIA pattern here [with Fast and Furious]: A wacko, barroom commando, illegal operation that makes no sense whatsoever, run outside the control of law enforcement.”
Make perfect sense.
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.
