I think that the October surprise got ruined when 4 Americans got killed. Bambi flirted with the devil - and lost!

Great question.. I suppose we’ll find out if the hit on Benghazi is a false flag to help 0bama win re-election. Also the theory that it was intended to be a hostage-taking but the foreign actors didn’t know the SEALs would be there and would fire upon them.

They might have to unpack the BACKUP OCT SURPRISE:

Unfortunate chem event in Syria —Baaaaad “pro assad” bad guys (resembling ATF guys) use small amount of chemical agent, therby compelling US forces to intervene in Syria directly.

Event is captured by luuuucky chance on 10 TV cameras witht the bad guys chanting that they hate diversity and love solar panels.

It took how long for him to finally authorize osama’s mission and people now think he is going to pull the trigger within the next 21 days?

Think about this; they had some percentage of certainty that it was Osama but they don’t have a clue who was involved I the attack on the consulate and they want to send in another Seal Team in to an unknown situation. Will never get operational approval from military planners let alone Joint Chiefs.

Can’t use drones because of too much risk of collateral damage showing up on TV.

Needs surgical strike on the ground to minimize damage.

This from the people who can’t decide on the strategy to use in the next debate.

Don’t be so sure. Obama needs a jail Mary and if that means forcing the military into a hastily planned operation with a vaguely defined target them he’s going to roll the dice. He doesn’t care about the military. He just wants a photo-op of US troops replanting the flag in Benghazi and an excuse for a Presidential address to the Nation.

Bingo. Some camel trader who once gave a light to someone who knew someone who once heard about Al-Q is going to get whacked - and 0bama will claim Bengazhi has been avenged.

Correct. And in that address to the nation, he’ll say the video was a scam, that it was reverse psychology intended to deceive the enemy. The drones will need to unload on the patsies before the “foreign policy” debate Monday.

Hey, could happen. It only takes about 5 percentage points to win.

My thoughts exactly. Some poor s.o.b. is not going to know what hit him, and the body(ies) will be shown to the world as proof that Obama and Biden “got those people responsible”

Carter didn’t bomb Iran, and there the target was obvious.. Why do you think Carter’s “mini-me” clone would bomb Libya?

Obama’s campaign strategy appears to be to get enough leftist jobless Marxist Studies majors and lazy food stamp recipients to the polls to overwhelm the middle class independents who are going for Romney by double digits. If he bombs anyone but Texas, those leftist America-haters will get their wittle feewings hurt and not show up on Election Day.

Hell, he doesn’t eve have targets yet. I’m no military strategist, but drawing up a target list and then getting people in place to attack those targets takes a lot more than three weeks

Yes. And they will be buried at sea, because Muslims do that, or something.

If there is a strike don’t be surprised if every embassy, consulate and American could be targeted within days. I’m not sure a few more burning embassies or consulates is what the Obama people want before the election. Risky strategy.

JUST what I was going to say: this Administration already had its own October surprise, and it started in September, and came to an ugly head in October, and more than anything lately that they’ve been able to talk their way out of, they
are not gonna be able to spin this, and it will do them in.

They’ll just screw it up. I cringe at the thought of this sniveling priss trying to pull off some last ditch extraness thinking it will win him some votes. He already threw his security people under the bus. Now suddenly he trusts them enough to pull off a counter strike? No, Chauncey, it’s over.

creek, if ground Troops are sent in to plant the flag am afraid it would be either a suicide mission or near suicide mission. Too many variables (imho). A prayer our Military is not only saying NO, but using strong terms to say NO. Not advisable at this time regarding what zer0 is setting up, if this is the plan. May our Military stand FIRM with NO.

They will bomb ANYTHING out there now in desperation, real scorched earth with nothing left on the ground, issue a phony after action report saying they got the bad guys, and then revise the report sometime in late November that, oh well, we hit somebody else instead, also terrorists but on the specific ones involved in the Benghazi. !Oh but we will keep on trying in the second term to get 'em...."

This was the plan all along. Have an uprising, have the Ambassador kidnapped, trade him for the Blind Sheik, and send a drone in to bomb a cave, to make the impostor look presidential, and decisive.
This scum cant go soon enough.

A Middle East blow up?

What does obozo care so long as the media doesn’t give any such major downside credence before Nov. 7?

Speaking of the media forestalling the near inevitable by their choice of lens (or lens cap), do we have any idea what was actually going on behind the scenes in the three weeks “the video excuse” was holding so many in suspended disbelief?

Fallout from negative press was stalled, giving rise to opportunities for mayhem yet undiscussed.
