Skip to comments.Why Benghazi is a Crucial Strategic Moment

"Ghazi" means "great warrior" in Arabic. The name "bin ghazi" means "the tribe of ghazi." Turkish Sultans used "ghazi" as an honorific, as in Caliph Sultan Ghazi Mehmed II Khan Caesar. Benghazi, the town in Libya, is also a notorious hangout for AQIM, al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (Mediterranean Africa). Those are the thoughts that come up in Arab minds when they hear Benghazi. It's the perfect propaganda place for al-Qaeda.
Radical Islam is at war with us, as they keep telling us out loud -- and we just handed them a historic victory, a repeat of 9/11/01 to the very day, eleven years later. A decade of war, and Obama has sacrificed whatever victories we achieved. One month ago, there were nearly identical twin attacks on our Cairo Embassy and our legation in Benghazi, ordered by al-Qaeda's Al Zawahiri the week before and carried out by AQIM. Those attacks on sovereign American diplomatic legations tell the world loud and clear that in spite of all our efforts and sacrifice since 9/11/01, al-Qaeda is alive!
Both our Cairo and Libya buildings were burned by AQ, flying the black AQ flag for the world media. In both cases our host governments -- their police, intelligence apparatus, and military, financed by U.S. tax dollars -- were nowhere to be seen. They fled and colluded in the attacks. Our ambassador to Libya was burned out and killed.
Obama is in denial of what every Muslim knows. The message is clear, but Washington just hopes it will go away if we pretend hard enough, like little children. That is why our administration and media have been lying about Benghazi and Cairo for the last month, ...

It didn’t help when the Obama Rebels freed all of those Al Qaeda prisoners that Gaddaffi had thrown in prison.
Interesting story. By the way, the word “Islam” means submission. The only thing that will change the 8th century behavior and beliefs of Muslims is to make them submit to us instead of their false god. That is the key to eliminating terrorism and attacks on the American way of life.
Everybody is looking at Benghazi, but I think we need to take a step back. Obama and Hillary have gone after Libya, Egypt and Syria. Why? Granted, these regimes weren’t angels, but why them? Obama and Hillary aren’t a couple of freedom fighters. Look at their history. They’re a couple of Democrat grifters. What do they care about how the people are treated in Libya, Egypt and Syria? This constant Democrat campaigning takes a lot of money. What is it with the foreign money coming into Democrat campaign coffers? We didn’t set the Middle East on fire so the Democrats could get some campaign money, did we?

Please tell more. This is something that I never read about Jefferson.
“Jefferson knew this, and DID this over 200 years ago. Yet we still hear those that disparage Jefferson and the other founders today.”

Go to the site, it is well worth the read. JSteff is correct.
It doesn’t help that we call Jihad terrorism.
Interesting article by James Lewis. POSOTUS and the Sociopath of State have committed TREASON.
And we may be the generation to witness it. Interesting times, indeed.
The best way is to just eliminate the terrorists!!
The future must not belong to those whoslander the prophet of Islam.
Aid and comfort to the greatest anti-truth, anti-freedom, anti-individual, anti-life collective in the history of civilization.
