Skip to comments.Benghazigate: Obama’s “Bad Intel” Excuse is Falling Apart

The current excuse is that Obama wasnt lying when he and his cronies kept blaming a video, he was the victim of bad intel from the bad intelligence community. Oddly though Senators with less intel access, like McCain, drew the right conclusions and so did most serious commentators on the region.
And the intelligence community stated that it was a terrorist attack by Al Qaeda, not a protest\murderous movie review.
Two days after the deadly Libya terror attack, representatives of the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said the evidence supported an Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda-affiliated attack, Fox News has learned.
The description of the attack by those in the Sept. 13 briefings stands in stark contrast to the now controversial briefing on Capitol Hill by CIA Director David Petraeus the following day and raises even more questions about why Petraeus described the attack as tied to a demonstration.
The Sept. 13 assessment was based on intercepts that included individuals, believed to have participated in the attack, who were celebratory as well as a claim of responsibility.
FBI and NCTC also briefed that there were a series of Al Qaeda training camps just outside of Benghazi, where the attack occurred and resulted in the deaths of four Americans. The area was described as a hotbed for the militant Ansar al-Sharia as well as Al Qaeda in North Africa.
The intelligence community did not mislead Obama by providing bad intel, as the FOX News story documents it was the Obama Administration that appeared to have pressured top officials like Petraeus into adopting a different narrative.
It takes no great intelligence to know that a large scale assault conducted with heavy weapons is not a spontaneous event. But the Administration wanted to present a picture of offended Muslims to hide the truth that Al Qaeda was on the rampage and that Obamas policies had made the rampage possible.
Bammy’s butt buds beat Bengazi beatdown by bitter Klingers.
Education in America has been in a downward spiral for 40+ years while Federal and State governments have been meeting union demands for ever increasing salaries and budgets.
It’s time, well past time, for the educators themselves to stand up for what they know is right rather than settle for another increase while the kids get screwed.
What they "know is right" is to go on strike if they don't get another salary increase while the kids get screwed.
It is a pipe dream to think otherwise.
The only intelligence that was lacking was in Obama’s head.
There are two sides to this Zero Sum game.
OBAMA ON HURRICANE: 'WE LEAVE NOBODY BEHIND'
Obama’s policies didn’t just make this rampage “possible”, they encouraged it. “Rampages” need to be cleaned up. Obama’s buddies just happen to be in that business. Look at illinoispaytoplay.com Obama has been setting the Middle East on fire so his buddies can come in and clean up. This isn’t laziness. This isn’t incompetence. This isn’t some ideological wackiness. This isn’t about freeing people. This isn’t about treason. This is just good, old fashioned greed. Obama and his buddies saw a way to use taxpayer money, employees, equipment and facilities to make themselves billions. Benghazi is bad for them because it’s making people take another look at Obama’s Middle East Policy. Here, I’ll give it to you. THE OBAMA MIDDLE EAST POLICY - Make me and my buddies as much money as we can by stirring things up and then getting paid for the cleanup. It’s a beautiful scheme. He convinced the Democrat party and the old media that he had “a higher calling”. His higher calling was to line his pockets. He’s just a dirty little grifter. Since the Democrats and old media continue to cover for him, then they are accessories to his crimes against humanity. War is an awful thing, but war to make money? That’s cold. That’s death camp cold.
Issa’s committee will get to the bottom of this as well as the upcoming Senate hearings. Question is, will any heads roll that should once all the facts are placed on the table.
I wouldn’t be surprised if there will be a major disclosure by this weekend that will bring Obama to his knees...
Wow. Reckon you could help me tie your post to the article in this thread? I can't do it on my own.
