Media Blackout: Why Obama Dodged the Libya Question
Big Journalism ^ | 10/27/12 | v

Posted on 10/27/2012 11:21:03 AM PDT by markomalley

President Obama ran into a buzzsaw yesterday while doing a round-robin of satellite interviews with local news outlets in crucial swing states -- and by "buzzsaw," I mean that rare form of species known as a "real reporter." Kyle Clark of Colorado's KUSA actually asked Obama about the latest revelations out of Libya. According to Fox News, the three requests for help made during the seven-hour attack on our consulate in Benghazi were met with orders from U.S. officials to "stand down." Wisely, Obama dodged this question entirely.

I say "wisely" because, as of right now, outside of a very few exceptions, the CorruptMedia has coordinated with the White House to create a complete blackout around this story. Not even yesterday's denial from the CIA that indirectly implicates the White House garnered any media attention.

In the closing days of a reelection campaign the CorruptMedia is desperate to see Obama win, it's glaringly obvious that nothing this potentially damaging to the president will be allowed to see the light of day -- at least not until after November 6.

Is Kyle already on his way to their Minot, North Dakota affiliate as the junior deputy farm reporter or did they just summarily fire him?

Just remember, folks, it just takes one person to entirely expose an office love affair between two people who cheat on their spouses at work....and then the whole world knows!!! Believe me, the MSM are just plain fools and idiots. The entire country knows Obama & company left our diplomatic and military folks out to dry and die while they (the Democrat Dirt Bags) lifted nary a finger to aid and save them. Obama should be impeached!!! As should, Clinton, Rice, Panetta, Carney, etc.

Bob Woodward officially jumped ship last night on Hannity. In reference to Obama’s answer that “This election isn’t about ...the deaths,” etc., Woodward called it a weird answer that set off all sorts of alarms and raised red flags. He stated there can’t be a “self investigation. “ He did back down and demur from Hannity’s inferences about Obama, but fully credited the father of Woods for making the statements he did. That’s a big block out of Obama’s firewall.

Why Obama Dodged the Libya Question

As much as 0bama hates and disdains The Constitution, he is invoking his Fifth Amendment rights, because impeachment and prosecution for TREASON are very real possibilities. I'd love the chance to test my waterboarding skills on that SOB!

“She’s gonna blow!” I just found this, it rings true.

Interesting Rumor Concerning General Carter Ham and Stand Down Order (Posted on 10/26/12 at 9:45 p.m.)


I heard a story today from someone inside the military that I trust entirely. The story was in reference to General Ham that Panetta referenced in the quote below.

quote:


“(The) basic principle is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on; without having some real-time information about what’s taking place,” Panetta told Pentagon reporters. “And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”


The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham’s place as the head of Africon.

I found this story when I got home after hearing this story.

quote:


President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.


General Rodigues Nominated as Head of Africon

As I was typing this I heard John Bolton on Greta say that there are conflicting reports of General Ham’s comments on this tragedy and why a rapid response unit was not deployed. Bolton says someone needs to find out what Ham was saying on 9/11/12.

Interesting to say the least.

Here’s what I think his motivation is (besides CYA).

While the bad guys in the WH are scrambling to deny their cover up and misdirection, I believe there is another long-standing related issue with this.

IMO Obama has as one of his main goals: improving the image of Islam around the world and helping its expansion.

Of course the Taliban, Al Qaeda and other fanatics keep getting in the way by killing ambassadors and shooting 14 year old girls.

Look at the apology tour, the support of the muslim brotherhood, moslems in the top of the state department advisors and the WH. Add his comments about the film for 14 days, even after he knew is was a terrorist attack..

The calling of the Ft. Hood terrorist attack, workplace violence, is just another outlandish example.

Stevie Wonder can see the pattern. Any decent reporter could make this into a headline story if they had the balls.

CBS news didn't say anything about this Communist Monster Obama murdering these Americans. The rest of the media also has a blackout on this , only Fox news reported on it.

CBS news spent 15 minutes of the 30 minute broadcast on this hurricane(only 1 problem that it will be nothing mark my words).

But now even Drudge is falling for this “hurricane” which won't do a thing.

fake unemployment numbers, now the storm of the century at the right time . and even most freepers fall for that hurricane as they did for the BP “disaster” (where is the damage of that?).

Holy cow!

I always thought Ham's odd and untimely "reassignment" seemed very fishy. This could be the crack that opens the dam of information regarding this treasonous cover-up.

Thanks for posting this.

The TRUTH will come out!

Obama pounded the table and declared:

“We will NOT inject American forces into another mid-East country and create the impression we’re involved in a civil war!”

From there, the team set about blaming a video trailer.

The media keeps Romney quiet on this because the media so savagely attacked Romney the minute he said ANYTHING on it as “politicizing the deaths” . But i think Romney has to say something and we have to call our congress to tell them to run hearings now

That is a fantastic idea. Go all journal jihad on the journalist! Cell Phone Camera Video the supposed professional journalist and ask them WHY they refuse to report on one of the biggest cover ups by a President in history!

Half this story has turned into a COVER UP by the LOUSY MSM!

I think phase one is to strengthen the hand of the fanatics and have them control more governments in the middle east. Puts Israel in more danger and totally in check.

Europe will fall by demographics, city by city and country by country. This has been underway for years.

I think China and India will keep Islam in check in Asia. Africa is being overrun and I think it will continue.

The US will take longer, but he will weaken us every which way. If he doesn’t get elected we can reverse some of this. Europe will have to do their thing.

Totally believable. Thank you.

I just don't see ANY of our MILITARY people swallow the repeated ‘stand down’ orders and watch their people being cut down. Live feed, too.

The only curious/suspect thing is the timing. More than 40 days after Benghazi attack, Obama announced Gen. Ham being replaced now. Until the Jennifer Griffin's story broke.

Will keep this in mind.

Wow! If this is true we are worse off than I thought and I knew we were in real trouble. Seems the bad guys have a lot of bases covered. We really need Gen. Ham to speak out. Pray that God will guide his heart and he will do the right thing and that God will keep him safe. We need to know that we have some of the military on our side and that there are still patriots where we need them.

I saw that last night....What nobody is talking about is when Zero losses the election he’ll get off. I listened at 12N to an interview with Mr Woods and alone in my car found myself weeping. Nobody has the right to stop/stand-down fellow Americans aiding other troops. We never leave troops behind...EVER

Bob Woodward also said we have to thank the looters because they were the guys he found the bodies and took them to the hospital around 12m. Boy is that sick.

If you look at the video of that supposed " film maker " take a look at his gait.. the way he walks..... that's the way a street thug walks.
Perhaps ? maybe ? they found some willing street thug to put on those cloths and be the pretend scapegoat in that photo op video ?
Perhaps ? they found some jail bird waiting on their conviction and gave him a lesser charge if he would play along and put those cloths on and act the part ?

Yeah, I know, BIG TIN-FOIL HAT conspiracy stuff...

But what was the real reason they had to hid his identity ?
Maybe ? that guy walking away from the police car was NOT the supposed film maker but a stand in ?

Once again ? check out his gait.. the way he walks... he walks like a street thug.

You're not mistaken. Dempsey is on the record expressing his great concern that the Fort Hood "Workplace Violence" not cause any loss of diversity in the military. His concern about diversity seemed greater than about the unnamed terrorism against our military.
