Skip to comments.Benghazi: Osama's Revenge on Obama
Posted on 10/13/2012 12:01:26 AM PDT by neverdem
Talk about chickens coming home to roost. Talk about the Mother of All Fiascos. It's the revenge of Osama bin Laden from the bottom of the ocean, and the message is plain: al-Qaeda is very much alive, and America is a paper tiger.
The Middle East is beginning to fall apart -- Iran just sent a spy drone over Israel's sensitive defense installations, and the IDF waited hours to react; Turkey forced down a Syrian arms plane, and al-Qaeda's Al Zawahiri openly assaulted the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in a six-hour attack, working through al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM), while the glorious Libyan friends did nothing as our ambassador was being raped and murdered. The guards called for help, and nobody responded. A police car fled the scene. The other ten cop cars requested by the consulate never showed up.
The Libyan regime knew. It had to know.
In Afghanistan, our soldiers are being murdered by the same Afghan troops we are training to take over after we leave. They can see the weak horse and the strong horse, and they are trying to tell the strong horse what side they are on. These folks used to be on our side, but they know which way the storm is blowing.
Remember: host governments are always responsible for the safety of accredited diplomats and soldiers. Always, always, always. Embassies have a U.S. Marine color guard -- not for protection, but for a symbolic presence. Host governments have overwhelming power: armies, cops, and a huge intelligence apparatus. In Afghanistan, believe it or not, we are the guests of the regime. If Afghan soldiers are killing us, it's because the regime is trying to save its butt, now that we have bowed down to the Taliban.

Where exactly is osama that he would have such power?
This is more likely God exposing our government for what it is. The truth is coming out. Four men died for this to happen.
Partners in crime as far as I’m concerned.
The jackass pissed all over the 1st Amendment while maintaining the pretense terrorism is no more.
Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.
THREE big quid pro quo incidents to remember:
USS COLE for EGYPTAIR
Helicopter full of Navy SEALS for bin laden
Benghazi for yahya al libi
And does anyone remember any incident before the bombings of our embassies in Nigeria and Tanzania? I know bill clinton had recently picked up a stash of cash in both places right before the bombings on his Africa trip.
Bet the farm there is more to “it” then the public knows. Petraus,CIA has something to hide too or he wouldn’t be cooperating with this group of thugs,
Thanks for the ping!
Thank you, I need do more digging on this guard that was interviewed.
No, that is not the case. It is men, capable men with an ax to grind that planned ans successively executed the attack
The lost battle was but another in a long protracted war that Obama attempted to deny.
That’s how I read it as well. For every ‘success’ we make against terrorism under this regime, there is a ‘sacrifice’. It is a very noticeable pattern, seemingly to indicate that we are working with the very people we say we are fighting against.
Absolutely. The evidence of this is overwhelming and no one will venture forth to stick a toe in the water.
Not sure if this helps.
Benghazi, Libya (dpa) - The police chief in Libyas eastern city of Benghazi on Saturday survived an assassination attempt, security sources said.
The car of Colonel Mohammed bin Haleem exploded when he remotely switched it on. The blast caused no injuries, the state-run news agency reported.
“The bomb was carefully placed inside the car,” it quoted an unnamed source as saying.
Oh yeah. The reasons and responses are there.
Lest we forget.
“In response to the bombings, President Bill Clinton ordered Operation Infinite Reach, a series of cruise missile strikes on targets in Sudan and Afghanistan on August 20, 1998, announcing the planned strike in a prime time address on American television.”
“In Sudan, the missiles destroyed the Al-Shifa pharmaceutical factory, where 50% of Sudan’s medications for both people and animals were manufactured. The Clinton administration claimed that there was ample evidence to prove that the plant produced chemical weapons, but a thorough investigation after the missile strikes revealed that the intelligence was false”
It was reported that the embassy requested police help many times during the attack.why didn’t he help?
So who wanted him dead? CIA ? Terrorist’s? Ex Libya secret police that he double crossed in the uprising? Seeing we were operating in the area we had to be using him as a source. If I’m him I may want to get my ass to France quickly and cut a deal with Issa along with the guard in the hostpital.
Romney needs to hammer Obama on not showing up to daily security briefings and ask the question.... “ If you were at the daily briefing maybe you would have been there to ask the question... are all of our Embassy’s safe?” Show an empty chair.
Colonel Mohammed bin Haleem knows too much, hence the ordered (failed) hit.
Perhaps the Benghazi compound level of security order was the same, no extra security...no help from police. Stevens was being set up. I don’t know if he was supposed to be killed or kidnapped.
Benghazi Information Management Officer, Sean Smith: (12:54:09 PM) vile_rat: assuming we don’t die tonight. We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures
In Hunt’s interview about command centers, he says our communications are so good that numerous people from at least 12 command centers; (WH Situation Room, Joint Chiefs of Staff, CIA, State Dept., etc.) would have been watching the attack in real-time on their iPads. Yet, no order was given. Nothing. Not even a jet fly-over.
I am trying to figure out what General Pertraeus is doing in this coverup. I know he is a Woodrow Wilson Prineton guy. I know he is hooked up with many from that ilk that loves world Goverment but he is committing political suicide in briefing the hill on the video. I am missing something or some relationship. It is obvious with our intelligence tools we knew real time what happened. We also had assets that could have been moved to cause change in the assault.
What am I missing? Could he be running an op with FBI or a special prosecutor that is already looking into the weapons transfers? He is not a dumb man.
It’s not clear who is playing for what team.
During Wednesday’s hearing, why did the State Department display the classified map which outed the Benghazi CIA base?
US Evacuates CIA Base in Benghazi after Publication of Satellite Photos
TEHRAN (FNA)- US intelligence efforts in Libya have suffered a significant setback due to the abandonment and exposure of a facility in Benghazi, Libya, identified by a newspaper as a “CIA base” following a congressional hearing this week, according to US government sources.
Libya was a test case for controlling chemical weapons amid revolutionary chaos. CIA officers on the ground helped the Libyan opposition secure the main chemical weapons bunker at Waddan. The CIA also helped connect the new Libyan government with officials from the deposed regime of Col. Moammar Gadhafi who were knowledgeable about the location of the weapons, which are now awaiting disposal.
CIA absence from Syria a setback for U.S., officials say
Thanks for the ping!
