Why Benghazi is a Crucial Strategic Moment
American ^ | James Lewis

Posted on 10/27/2012 7:18:53 AM PDT by kindred

"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, and why those assaults by battalion-size AQ forces equipped with mortars, RPGs, and possibly anti-aircraft MANPADS are so important.

My local fellating “news”rag and fish wrap HAS NOT mentioned any of the Obama and associates connections with the more recent disclosures regarding the BENGAHZI MUREDERS AND BETRAYALS, not even to deny or spin them..........that is an indication of how bad they think it is for Obama.
The local POS is the ALBANY TIMES UNION.....and wonders of wonders, Governor CUOMO II is going on the campaign trail for Obama after laying low for months... does that mean CUOMO II is going to run for president in 2016? Things look bad for the Negro son of the white trash woman from
Hawaii....I hope.

Radical Islam is at war with us - the press can stick their heads in the sand, but it won’t stop the reality of what’s happening. Radical Islam is at war with us. Do we have to wait until a few American cities are destroy by Iranian nukes before we understand that the rest of the world is playing for real?

Obama isn’t in denial about radical islam being at war with us....he’s on the other side and doesn’t want us to know.

This man is not one of US!

Here’s the elite liberal’s Benghazi game plan for the murders of our SEALS:

Wife comes home early from visit and finds her husband in bed with another woman.

She starts screaming, “What are you doing? Who is that woman...” Then to the ‘other woman’ ‘Who are you - how dare you’ and yelling at husband ‘What are you doing’ ...

Husband turns to wife and says, “Nothing’s going on - I’m getting ready for work’. The ‘other woman’ starts getting dressed. Wife keeps yelling “ What is she doing here - how dare you”. Husband says, “nothing is happening, I’m getting ready for work” The other woman leaves and the wife keeps screaming - husbands walks out to the kitchen. Wife keeps yelling - husband asks if she’d like some coffee... She says, ‘what was going on’. He says ‘nothing is going on, I’m getting ready for work.. do you want some coffee?” and she gives up.

That’s the plan. Total stonewall. It’s effective - sociopathic and totalitarian Obama’s not smart enough to come up with this tactic on his own... either is the press. We need to get the truth out, but it’ll take more than screaming.
