Supporting Obama's Libya Deception
American Thinker ^ | October 23, 2012 | Allan J. Favish

Posted on 10/24/2012 7:39:06 AM PDT by AJFavish

On October 22, 2012, the Wall Street Journal published an article titled "Intelligence Stressed Libya Protest Scenario" by Adam Entous and Siobhan Gorman. It can be read here. There are several reasons why it appears to be an attempt to help President Obama deceive the public about the murder of our ambassador to Libya and several other heroes. I will address only one.

In general, the article tries to place the blame on the Central Intelligence Agency for President Obama's numerous erroneous public statements that the Libya attack was caused by a YouTube video that incited a group of demonstrators, rather than being a planned military attack by people who want to murder Americans in the name of Islam. But the WSJ waited until paragraph 16 of the article to say this:

KEYWORDS: benghazi; benghazigate; chrisstevens; libya; obama
Focus on the assertion that Obama was briefed on Sept. 20 and/or 22, and then lied on Sept. 24 & 25. Obama today says the emails were not "intelligence." The WSJ describes "intelligence" that leaves no wiggle room for Obama and the Dems.

In a sane world the public outrage and media pressure would cause Obama to make a prime time apology from the Oval office and resign!!

I believe that CNN, ABC, CBS Geraldo et al are well on their way to taking these emails and spinning a new story line that will say that there was sooo much info coming in and it was impossible for the WH to know the truth and Obama
just didn’t know and somebody had said something about a video and then the terrorist heard about the video and that is when they decidedto attack.. ABSURD.

No true American can read the emails just released and not be infuriated and disgusted with Obama, Clinton and the entire lying administration, including their intelligence agency enablers.

The USA is doomed, not because of its lousy economy, but because of its lousy leadership.

Good morning Alan.

FoxNews was on this like white on rice this morning.

One of the Cheney girls (or is there only one) worked in the diplomatic corp. She absolutely destroyed Obama. Two of our men were still fighting seven hours after the fighting started.

She stated that it would take less than an hour to move troops from Italy in to save our men.

She tied the memos to the events in real time. Obama was meeting with heavy-weights at 4:00pm Washington, D. C. time, while the attacks were still taking place. She revealed to the public (something we already knew) that they knew it was terrorism at that moment. They knew they could save our men and didn’t.

If a viewer were at all interested in the validity of an Obama administration, that case was closed.

Obama didn’t get a 3:00 am call. He got a 3:00 pm call, and he couldn’t handle it. The only question now is, did this lout go to bed while our last two guys were still fighting for their lives?

By the time this is over, even the Democrats are going to distance themselves from this radioactive community self-aggrandizer.

Yes. So were Clinton’s antics. I doubt the media will ever refer to them in those terms. And our school textbooks will never demonize these two as they have Nixon for 35 plus years.

Here's my question for DNC/MSNBC/CNN/cBS/NBC/ABC/NYT/WaPo/etc ....

If this exact set of circumstances happened while George W. Bush was President ..... What Would You Be Doing Right Now?

Look yourself in the mirror and answer honestly. Are you independent media, doing the job of the 'Fourth Estate'?

Or are you just a pathetic state controlled pawn, pushing the propaganda of your dear Leader?

The bottom line - there was a crisis and obama flew to Vegas just hours later. He abandoned his post.

Before this, I merely had little respect for people who would vote for Obama. Now, I find it difficult to not completely detest anyone who would be aware of this and still vote for this man.

Although you are correct, it is worse than that.

They withheld aid for dying Americans in real time when they could have intervened.

FoxNews is all over the emails, but not all over what the WSJ reported about the Presidential Daily Briefing and the information to the National Security Council. This information, if true, is more devastating to Obama then the emails, because of what Obama said to the public on Sept. 24 & 25.

Also, I agree that there are questions that need to be asked and answered about why the victims were not given military help during the attack to a greater degree.

The world has not been sane for quite a while. Hopefully that will change soon but it won’t happen without a lot of prayer. We need God back on our side. He must have as prominent a place as He did in the days of our founding. That trust in God is what made this county great and will again if we stand up for HIM.

In all likelihood, yes. If you studied Obama’s history(the last 30 years), his current behavior fits the circumstance. Look how Obama REALLY handled the Osama Bin Laden situation.
Obama is a coward.

“Obama didn’t get a 3:00 am call. He got a 3:00 pm call, and he couldn’t handle it. “

Good summary. It’s chilling to read that “The 17th february militia” was providing security during the attack. Bambi was clearly afraid and dithered for hours when he had the likes of the United States Marine Corps waiting for his order to deploy. Boggles the mind.

Thank you Alan.

It would seem to me, that Obama and the Secretary of state knew at 4:00pm on 09/11/12, that this was an act of terrorism.

They knew what munitions were being used against our staff.

The whole spontaneous protest sham is revealed to be misinformation. The only question now, is why?

Did Obama need to downplay an Al Qaeda connection?

Was he merely trying to downplay his inept leadership?

If this were a Republican president, they’d already be calling for him to step down.

The Democrats believe that Jimmy Carter lost the 1980 Presidential election because of the failed Iranian hostage rescue attempt. Obama, Hillary and the Democrats failed to attempt any kind of military operation to help the Americans in Benghazi because of a POLITICAL decision. They based their calculations on the ramifications to Obama’s re-election bid. That is why we have this coverup. Obama and the Democrats were more concerned with politics than with American lives.
Our military exists to protect Americans. I don’t care if all we could do was drop flares, then we should have done it. And if pilots have to land in Libya because they didn’t have enough fuel, well guess what, that’s what they signed up for. My God, the two guys in Mogadishu went in to save the helicopter crew knowing full well they’d probably die. That’s what it means to be a Soldier.

Sept. 11 the attacks occurred. After that O and his minions were selling the video story hard, even though his version didn’t make sense. Then on the the night of the first debate, Oct.3, O’s mind seemed to be on something other than the debate, and R trounced him.

Could the reason be that people in the State or intelligence departments, or even the ghosts of the victims, were confronting him with the facts?

That could’ve been my son. Obama said of Trayvon Martin.
What he said of Chris Stevens + 3 Americans was an ugly lie and he lied again and again.

Didn’t make sense ?

It was laughable, except for the fact that 4 people are dead.

I would love to know who the idiot was who cooked this up.

I saw a crowd at Delray beach in south FL and watched the crowd as their messiah came out.

Women, and mostly blacks jumping up and down, they were blowing kisses and I could’t believe my eyes.

Either these people have been asleep for 4 years, think the media as been told the truth or they know of not one person who has lost their house, their job, reduced wages, seen gas prices go up, food go up, student loans up etc etc etc

I can’t stand these people anymore, years ago I would say we just disagreed but they proved to me that they are just dumb, and stupid.

Yes the media has been bias yet again, hell even FOX reported how most of the media on the debate night in their room jumped up , laughed and clapped for obama but even with the media being so bias surely one would have thought that they would have seen prices, people losing homes and jobs etc

It’s not that we have different issues, it;s because they either vote for their cult hero based on 3 things.

1. food stamps and welfare, they want their handouts and yes I’ve talked to some who have admitted that.

2. they vote on color and that accounts for probably 95% of black voters and they ignore the issues and trust me they are not that bright when you do bring issues up.

3.these are the idiots, those who vote for a D and think the AD’s tell them the truth, they have no concept about truth or facts, they ignore facts but because they and their parents have always voted for a Dem when they lived up north that means they will always vote for a D down here.

Those are the people who are stupid, ignorant and downright dangerous to this country, to them it;s all about them and screw the country or her future.

I can’t stand the left anymore, I refuse to be friends with them now, I always speak up when I hear that soccer mother who thinks she knows everything because she repeats talking points and bumper sticker slogans.
They’ve ruined this country and then try to say it;s getting better.

Obama now is saying Romney wants the 1950’s social issues, well yea curse I do, back then divorce was lower, famlies brought teir kids up better, respect was given and kids were taught respect, men were men and women were women.

Look at the crap we have now, men who think they;re a woman but still likes women so they think they;re a homosexual woman, then they think they shoudl get other peoples kids and then play family.
Yea I;ll take the 1950’s social issues ovr the crap and mental sickness we have today even thought I was not born back then

Something like that. You know Hillary is saving evidence that she thinks will cover her butt, and that could tempt Dems who wanted Hillary to be POTUS to pile on against O.

Ah...., well, Hillary said she was in charge at the state department, but that was just before she said the State Department Security Service was in charge of security at our embassies.

She next said she was going to investigate, find out what went wrong, and fix it.

Does she know something I don’t. How do you fix a dead Ambassador? How do you fix three other dead people?

What’s more, how do you sleep knowing you betrayed them for months, culminating when you betrayed them in their hour of need as they were fighting for their lives, then dying needlessly.

There was a four o’clock meeting in the White House on 09/11/12. The management level people in that meeting should resign, starting with Bath House Barry.

I suspect the Clintons are capable of doing what it takes to make it appear that the evidence supports their story. But for what it's worth,

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered additional security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi ahead of the terrorist attack but the orders were never carried out, according to “legal counsel” to Clinton who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein.

Those same sources also say former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

What happens when you order something important done?

Why of course you check to make sure it was done. It’s your responsibility. If something goes south, it’s your neck on the line. If something goes south, it’s other people’s neck on the line.

Hillary, you didn’t follow through. Four people died. You’re fired.

Liz Cheney was on FoxNews this morning, 16 hours ago. She stated they could have had troops on site in 1 hour from Italy.

Two of our lost men fought at the annex for seven hours before being killed. They were hit and bled onto their rooftop machine guns. The blood was caked on thick.

I hope they reconstitute some of that blood, and place it on the records of the people who contributed to their deaths. Then I hope they place those records in a public place where the names of the responsible people will be viewed for the rest of our nation’s history.

I could maybe understand it if O had to deal with a 9/11/2001 magnitude attack simultaneously, but O seemed more interested in fundraisers, campaigning, and TV appearances than saving patriots' lives. I can't believe anyone would vote for that POS after what happened.

Obama might have been asleep, like Hitler on D-Day, with instructions not to wake him.

What if the military told whoever would make the decision that sending reinforcements might result in a bigger massacre of our people?

Something tells me that if Obama or Hillary was under attack they would have found a way to send more help.
