Obambo GOT HIM!!! Woot! Just think! Another National Geographic propaganda film based on a true story from the files of Barack Hussein Obama! I can’t wait. Hell, I’ll be so busy watching Obambo movies that I might forget to go vote! This is great! Of course, this clown probably wasn’t even in the area of Benghazi during the Al Qeada raid but what the heck! It’s something for Americans to be happy about!

This whole story seems a little too neat.

He was ‘described as a terrorist.’? How would you describe this man? “Well, I would describe him as a terrorist”

“Police reportedly seized bombs, rocket-propelled grenades and ammunition from the scene.” Wow. Perfect. He must have smuggled them from Cairo to Benghazi in his man purse, and these were the left-overs he brought back.

“The reports could not be independently confirmed, and there were conflicting reports over the incident.” Shocking.

I’d be willing to bet 60% this didn’t take place. It’s an entirely bare bones sketch, where every skeletal fact builds the narrative that we got some revenge on a caricature of a terrorist. I don’t buy it. Sounds like Nigel Tufnel Axelrod scribbled it out on a napkin at the IHOP in Chicago.

The stonehenge terrorist was probably 6 inches tall.

“Hazem”....(the terrorist)

Was this the guy the Adm identified as the only suspect so far. They knew he wasn’t a leader, but the Adm weren’t allowed to go in to interrogate him?

A name had been mentioned, but I can’t find my source for the above.

[PS & btw: I’m not thinking of the strawberry frappe man who was interviewed by a reporter.]

ROFL Histerical post............

I knew this thread would not fail me, FUNNY STUFF. Think I will hang around for awhile.

did they really say they described him??? Well, he had black hair, black beard, brown eyes (what we could see of them), he had a towel around his head, dark skinned. Yep that's how we recognized him.

Oh Yeah, he was saying something about Greetings from Obama. So of course we had to take him out. Loose lips and all........

I don’t think so. The one that was mentioned by zero administration is being held in Tunisia after being ‘captured’ in Turkey. We still have not interviewed him according to reports.

We should demand that the administration release the live feed video of the Benghazi attack AND the Ambassador’s autopsy report. We paid for it, we deserve to see it.

I am seeing a growing chorus for Obama’s impeachment all over the Internet in comments in every story about Benghazi. If Obama wins or steals this election.....HE WILL BE IMPEACHED!!

Supplying arms,aid and comfort to our enemies is an impeachable offense.

I really do appreciate your sentiment involving that suggestion. But the odds of
that happening are pretty much nill. The Executive Branch, DOS, CIA, DOD can say it's beyond
the bounds for public viewing.
Perhaps in time it might become DE-classified.
And those on say Issa's committee are sworn to not leak any
information regarding what they might have or will eventually view.

- Right now Obama is wishing they had not used up the old “my typical white person grandmother died three days before the 2008 election and never knew I won!” scenario

- Obama is running pretty low on sickly Grandmas and Big Birds now -

- Maybe his mother-in-law in the White House will volunteer (or not volunteer) to suddenly.....

A week ago, I read on www.hillbuzz.org, written by Kevin Dujan, that the talk from “insiders who know” have stated that oboma would concoct a story about some “sheepherder or someone like him” who would be named the person responsible for the hit on the Benghazi consulate...he would then be “killed” and his body decimated in a shootout or bombing or something, and like bin Laden, no body would be available to confirm the name of the person or the opportunity to interrogate said person. And now it looks like the “insiders who know” were on the money on this one. I don't know who Kevin DuJan of Hillbuzz has as his “insiders who know”, but this guy has been right on many things that I have read about in Hillbuzz for the last month....check out the stories on his pages and see what you think.

I don’t know about Hillbuzz but my sources tell me they traced him when he tried to use ambassadors Steven’s American Express card at Egypt’s jihad bazaar buying more rocket propelled grenades. Mohammad the owner of Rockets-R-Us said Mohammad (the buyer) was a nice quiet man for a terrorist. Mohammad’s (the sellers) son, Mohammad Jr. said he called the police when Mohammad (the buyer) acted suspicious when he claimed he never heard of the movie “The innocence of Muslims”
Remember you heard it here first: terrorist caught by life lock!

- I just watched a former CIA man speak to Neil Cavuto on Fox News Channel about Obama, Paneta, Hillary, etc. -

- “BAD” and “SILLY” people who just watched for hours (in “real time”) as Ambassador Stevens and three others were tortured and died and - and King Obama & his Court did nothing to help them or to rescue them -

.

Can you imagine General George Patton saying this to General Eisenhower when US Airbourne soldiers were encircled by the Germans and freezing:

“Golly Ike!

If I take our tankers to save them we might lose some of my men!

I think it is just too darned risky!

Let’s just wait and HOPE things improve and maybe even CHANGE for the better!

Anyone want another of my beers while we eat this delicious tender Kobi beef?”
