Obama Knew
American Spectator ^ | 1025/2012 | Jeffrey Lord

Posted on 10/26/2012 4:28:30 AM PDT by IbJensen

Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep U.S government from protecting Benghazi consulate?

Obama knew.

Say again, Obama knew.

So. The question.

If what happened in Benghazi wasn't incompetence -- was it ideology?

Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs?

And is Hillary Clinton's insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were "not evidence" yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology?

Specifically, did an ideological soft spot for Sharia -- Obama's name is being used by his step-grandmother to raise funds to educate kids in Sharia -- blind the U.S. government to the threat posed by Ansar Al-Sharia? A group whose objective, says its Libyan leader, is to "impose Sharia" on Libya.

A group whose namesake in Yemen is a subsidiary of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula ("AQAP" in State Department language). It was, recall, Obama himself who first dismissed the so-called "Underwear Bomber" as an "isolated extremist." Finally the administration was forced to admit that AQAP was responsible for "the December 25, 2009 attempted attack on Northwest Airlines Flight 253 from Amsterdam to Detroit, Michigan."

First, the e-mails.

In a stunning leak (and as this is written the leaks discussed below are expanding, with more gushing forth), Fox News producer Chad Pergram has discovered one of the biggest stories of the fall campaign:

...officials reported within hours of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya that Al Qaeda-tied group Ansar al-Sharia had claimed responsibility.

...The Obama Administration knew specifically "within hours" that the attack on the Libyan consulate was a terrorist attack ...

How many times do we have to say it?

He's a muzzie trojan horse.

We screamed as loud as we could 4, 5 .. years ago.

But would anyone listen?

Our biggest mistake is fighting Muslims with a Muslim. All outcomes possible have a Muslim winning.

This can not stand!

The intelligence, part of which they have had for over 8 YEARS, shows the attack was planned by Hillary and the Obama administration.

I don’t think it was dithering at all.

1. baraq met with the muslim brotherhood multiple times this year in the White House.

2. baraq’s reaction to the attack. He was cold and seemed to be bothered by it all.

3. He kept to his schedule to go to Vegas like nothing happened.

4. He trotted out a lie about a youtube bit and had the maker of it arrested. BTW he is still in jail. No news on that guy.

5. The mother of a CIA anaylist murdered over there has met with baraq, hillary and pannetta. She is being smokescreened and BS’ed by all of them.

Don’t know where this leads, but it sure looks like baraq knew well before it happened and is now acting incredulous that anyone would be looking into it.

Bozo, ordering the execution of bin Laden, was performing a mercy killing by proxy. Bin Laden was now classified as ineffectual, so Bozo, kindly, gave him a ticket to paradise. As to bin Laden’s 72 virgins, they ran out of those 200 suicide bombers ago.

Ty Woods dad didn’t get warm and fuzzy vibes form Obama, Clinton etc. when he met with them either - felt like they were not telling him the truth and were ‘cold’. He’s speaking out about it now as he realizes his son was left to die when no help was sent and everyone just watched.

Remember 0’s Hollywood friends are making the case that Zero not only was kept updated real-time on the raid on Bin Laden but actually was partly in command of it.

At the same time we are told to believe that with a drone over Benghazi and live reports from the consulate and the embassy it was impossible to understand what was going on during the many hours the attack took place! No aid was forthcoming, because the whole situation was so unclear!

THIS DOES NOT COMPUTE!

Remember Nicholas Berg? He was the young man who went to Iraq, walked in dangerous places, protected, he felt, by his good intentions. Nicholas Berg attempted to convey that he was on “their” side, no doubt he was.

Nicholas Berg was beheaded.

This is what happened in Benghazi. As relates to Islamists, what we have been experiencing is the Nicholas Berg foreign policy.

Perhaps now we can learn that the Islamist sees all our actions as punitive, retaliatory, and sinister, except when we attempt to frame our actions as altruistic, and then they see us as weak. Weakness is always seen as an invitation to kill us.

He answered it - and gave the go-ahead to AQ. A failure to respond showed them right away that it was cool with the boss.

Say it! Obama is a Moslem. He gladly sacrifices the infidel to the jihadist brothers just as he is doing with the whole country and with civilization.

I think it was an “October Surprise’ that didn’t come off quite as planned. No one counted on the SEALs defending the ambassador or the ambassador dying before he could be “kidnapped.”

More than just a kernel of truth, it's what 8 year old intelligence shows.

The intelligence shows the terrorist attack was planned THEN they planned the protest in Egypt as a cover. The idea was to make it appear as if the terrorist are so in tune with the news they can pick up on a news story then plan and carry out an attack immediately.

That is the reason for lie about the attack being spontaneous.

When that didn't work the only alternative was to make everyone believe the attack and the protest were completely unrelated and just a coincidence they occurred at the same time.

That is why they continued with the “spontaneous” lie, so everyone would keep repeating there was no connection with the two. The lie has worked. Everyone now believes there was no connection.

With the terrorist attack being planned then the protest being planned as a cover, you move the planning for the attack back months.

It's not possible to plan an attack against a particular person, on a particular day, at a particular location months in advance without some guarantee the person would be at that particular location on that particular day. The person that guaranteed he would be there is Hillary.

I saw that. Biden has dementia or some other brain damage issues (he’s had two brain aneurysm surgeries), in my opinion. There are a million reasons not to re-elect Obama. Joe Biden, all on his own, is a good reason not to re-elect just because he is next in line should the worst happen.

I agree.

The longer Secretary of Statements Hilly takes to “get to the bottom of this,” the more obvious it is that the Benghazi Cover Up was hastily designed to hide a VERY BIG US SECRET TOPIC.

My guess is that the CIA had discovered that some of the 20,000 Libyan Missiles were found in the possession of Ansar al-Sharia, or al-Qaeda who were then shipping them to Syria, and Obama knew all about it.

Can Hilly and Billy keep this a secret until after November 6, 2012?

Their lives just might depend on it - - - .

If Romney was briefed at his Security Briefing that this was the case, then that may be the reason why Romney chose not to slam Obama about the Behghazi Cover Up in the last debate - - - .

Arab Moslems are the ultimate fatalists. "If God wills it" is the comment about any suggestion of doing or being anything. Another is "God will provide." All our aid is accepted and the givers are not credited with anything at all because "God will provide." God provides material goods to the Moslems through he agency of the despicable infidels. It is only fitting. If the aid is cut off, well, "God wills it." There is nothing the infidel can do or say that would gain the respect of the Moslem, nothing that would put the Molsem in the debt of the infidel. That is inherent in Islam and is the most extreme among Arab and Arabized Moslems.That kind of fatalism is why a total military trouncing and a cutoff of resources from the West results in a subsidence of militant Islam. The Moslem world sinks into lethargy, God wills that Islam will not yet triumph.

All wealth beyond bare subsistence in the Arab Moslem world and to a lesser extent in the non Arab portion comes from the spoils of conquest or from tribute paid to Moslems by infidels. When the West no longer needs Moslem oil and quits sending treasure to the Saracen hordes the Umma will become again a poor backwater of the world, unless, of course, Islam conquers the West and the rest of Asia before that time- then the whole world will be a depopulating backwater with no mainstream.

This has a very bad smell about it, as though this was a deliberate set up by the White House.

It has the earmarks of a political assassination or in more frank language, murder.

TREASON - aid, comfort and weapons to enemies and pre-meditated lies in the form of direct attacks on amendment 1.

In other words...taqiyya and sharia law in one fell swoop.

TREASON like this republic has never seen before.

The President of the United States went to bed with an on-going attack on our consulate and our people unaccounted for. He should be charged with dereliction of duty and removed from Office, awaiting his trial.

He makes me sick!!!

Given baraq’s reaction and the picture of him with letterman, it sure like he knew and was pleased with the outcome.

I heard an analogy that hit home.

The MS 13 gang goes on a killing spree in a city targeting police officers, then the mayor and police cheif go on a preplanned vacation to Vegas shortly after. And then act incredulous that anyone would question their actions.

From the statements that have been made and the “coincidence” of attaching Obama to the hip of Carter during the dem convention, it appears as if Stevens was supposed to be taken hostage and not killed.

The intel they have is a letter from UBL to Mullah Omar. In the doc UBL makes a passing statement to the effect “the news is 90% of the preparation for the battle”.

If you have a small scales attack you can achieve your objective by carrying out the attack based on what is in the news. For a large scale attack you can't.

To achieve your objective for a large scale attack you must orchestrate the news for the attack the follow up after the attack with the correct spin.

Not only was the protest in Egypt part of the orchestrated news, but the dems attaching Obama to Carter was also part of the orchestrated news.

The idea was to blame it on the republicans just like they did with Reagan and Carter and the original “October Surprise”.

As to what the entire plan involved isn't clear, but what is clear this was a set up to get Hillary into the WH in 2016.

Yeah, all the Why? Why? why? stuff for days and weeks. It just appeared painfully obvious to me.

I don’t have too many clues as to who is writing the “scripts” over there in Washington at the building formerly known as the White House. They sure seem to be employing some grade school drop-outs ...

If it were possible to employ preschool drop-outs, I think they would. Wait a minute, now that almost all the State Hospitals across the county are closed maybe I’m starting to ....

Very few on this site have the criminally corrupt brain, to necessarily understand minds, the likes of which foul Washington these days. Honestly, who here would want to spend 60 seconds inside the brain of one of these creatures? I know I sure wouldn’t!

I sure hope and pray daily that come November we hear one Very Loud Flushing Sound !!!
