Skip to comments.Questions on Benghazi
Posted on 10/14/2012 6:58:58 PM PDT by cdchik123
Where is CIA Director Gen. David Petraeus? He seems to be the missing man in the unfolding Benghazi debacle. It is his agency, among others, which is being fingered by the White House for getting the Libya attack wrong. However, we know that within a very short time after the murder of our ambassador (an extraordinary occurrence) and others, our intelligence community did have the story straight: This was an organized al-Qaeda attack. Is he to preside over a witchhunt? Or is he, who to date has been one of the most respected national security officials, going to be instrumental in shining light on the Libya fiasco and thereby truly serving the national interest and the memory of those killed?
Thats one of the many pending questions bubbling over in the Libya scandal. But we finally be getting some answers. On Friday Sens. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced that the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee will hold hearings on the Benghazi debacle. Those hearings cant come a moment too soon. The questions are multiplying:
1. When, if ever, did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton become aware that there was a request for more security in Benghazi before 9-11-2012?
2. Who participated in briefing Ambassador Susan Rice before she went on the Sunday talk shows on Sept. 16?
3. Was the White House aware of the August Library of Congress report documenting the deteriorating security situation in Libya?
4. Was the Libya security situation included in any presidential briefings?
5. Did the CIA within a day or so determine there had been a planned terrorist attack? What did it do with this information? Why did President Obama continue to insist the attack was a spontaneous reaction to the anti-Muslim movie?

Why this anti-Muslim movie when so many other videos more offensive to Islam exist and have existed for years?
Obama and Hillary Clinton are in this up to their necks. Petraeus may be also. It centers on the missing missiles. You can bet the CIA was involved in overthrowing Gadaffi. I don’t remember when Petraeus took over at the CIA relative to the regime change in Libya. They may have all been played for suckers by al-Qaeda. Maybe the plan by al-Qaeda was always to get access to those missiles. We are going to pay for those missing missiles. Thanks to the Democrats, we are going to pay big for them. And they’ll turn around and use that money to fight us. This is the end of the Democrat party.
How does that bus tire feel General?
MEMO TO WASHINGTON POST
This Democrat debacle in Libya makes Watergate look like a whoopee cushion prank. You’d better get on it. Americans are dead.
Is that the same as a Hillary hunt?
Bingo - there are thousands of videos on youtube of people pissing on the koran etc
The NYTimes and WaPo stopped caring about dead Americans as soon as Obama was elected.
Would this be the same guy that the dems called General BetrayUs? Just asking.
“This is the end of the Democrat party”
You haven’t met my father-in-law.
He’s a walking contradiction - Catholic, loves America and is so invested in the lie, like Cindy Lou Who, if the Democrats drove up and emptied his house while he watched it wouldn’t shake his devotion so long as they lied to him so he had someone else to blame.
or burning it with strips of bacon between the pages...
This was a cluster pooch screw but the question I’d like to hear put to Obama is:
“How many national security briefings did you attend in the week preceding last September 11, your Majesty?”
As far as the American public knows some muslims rioted over some video. End of story.
Two Words: VINCE FOSTER
Two Words: VINCE FOSTER
Everyone was informed of the attack in Benghazi in real time. The President, Sec. State, the Pentagon, the CIA ... It's automatic, required by law and all logged.
How does that bus tire feel General?<<<
He’s new...He just sees headlights!....but he will go down with the ship....NEXT!
6. Did the daily WH Intel briefings have the correct information and if not, why not??
7. Did the President attend the daily briefings in the days following the 9/11/12 terrorist attack? If not, why not??
A random act of journalism by the Washington Post...it only took them a month:
Quote: “However, we know that within a very short time after the murder of our ambassador (an extraordinary occurrence) and others, our intelligence community did have the story straight: This was an organized al-Qaeda attack.”
Obama wasn’t taking his intel briefings, so who knows if the briefings would have included information about Libya. You must remember that Obama had just, six months prior, deposed the dictator, who was holding down Al Qaeda in Libya. Is the enemy of my enemy my friend?
On top of that, Obama was being pressured by Morsi and the brother of Al Zawahiri, to capitulate to the demands that Bin Laden had set out before the original 9/11 attacks, including the release of all Islamic prisoners ( mainly the Blind Sheik). It would have made an excellent October surprise, if the ambassador had been captured, and Obama had been able to secure his release and appease the Muslim world, by capitulating to the demands laid out by Zawahiri. But something went terribly wrong, the ambassador died.
Has Fox reported on this yet?
It makes more sense that the movie might be a setup when weighed with the comments of the actors who were unaware of its goal. This stinks more than a coverup, but appears to be a preplanned defense.
They left something out in question number 4:
4. Was the Libya security situation included in any presidential briefings? MOST IMPORTANTLY, DID OBAMA BATHER TO SHOW UP TO THE BRIEFINGS?
I’m am with you on this.
This was an al-Qaeda attack to disrupt that search.
This is turning into a huge story and even the Washington Post can’t ignore it anymore. They had an opinion column about this today, this afternoon, and it wasn’t even from the lone conservative on their staff.
They are covering up a coverup of a coverup. There’s just too many mistakes that have been made to keep this quiet. Plus, there are dead Americans. And even the staunchest Democrat is going to look at this and wonder how those missiles got to al-Qaeda and what that might mean to him/her. This is a HUGE problem caused by Democrat thinking and policies.
This story is different. Even the press won’t be able to spin it. Obama and Hillary Clinton are finished. The Democrats are going to have to do what they can to save the party, and I don’t think there’s anything they can do.
Not that I know of but I would have to find that out here. I don’t watch them much anymore.
That was a very active thread last night....
I was busy watching College Football and baseball.
Kind of working thru it now,...Audio of Hunt is not coming thru clearly....
Those are great links.
Patraeus even said it was the VIDEO!! What a Political POS he's turned out to be!!
Are you SERIOUS??? The Dems HATE this country and LOVE anything that will DESTROY it!!
That “Weapons Hunting” article has a TON of info in it....every read!!
Thanks ,...guess I’ll start with that one.
And the greater war against free humanity

Bangkok, Thailand May 20, 2011 As Adolf Hitler noted, all propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach. Certainly the writers handing US President Barack Obama his Middle East speech had a particularly ignorant audience in mind. Holding to the narrative that the Arab Spring uprising were spontaneous Obama would parrot, It is not America that put people into the streets of Tunis and Cairo it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and must determine their outcome.
However, the Arab Spring was entirely engineered, prepared for, activists trained, funded, and equipped by the United States, years in advance, based on successes and experience garnered from decades of extraterritorial meddling. In particular, a coalition between the US State Department, NGOs, corporations, and organizations entirely contrived for the sole purpose of fomenting unrest in foreign nations, began as early as 2008 preparing for what is now unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.
I’d like to know what Obama was doing during the 6 hour attack. Hqven’t heard. Maybe packing for the Vegas trip.
