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.
