The article is informative for sure, but here are some further observations found in the comments section:
The Stevens killing was a staged kidnapping Obamas October surprise gone badly wrong. According to this theory, the idea was for Stevens to be taken hostage, and Mr. Nobel Peace Prize would free him after delicate high-stakes negotiations, and look like a hero, just before the election. (It would also have presented a welcome opportunity or excuse to hand over the Blind Sheik in exchange. Obama is under tremendous pressure to hand over the "Blind Sheik".) But the kidnappers screwed up and killed the Ambassador when they came under fire from the Seals. And Obama watched the whole thing in real time.
It would explain the reduction in security, the stand-down orders blocking any CIA and military rescue, and the political weaving and ducking ever since
If this is true, this time the crime is way worse than the coverup.
You’re right, the crime would be far worse.
The media lied. It's NOT about the cover-up OR the crime. It's about the Letter beside the name. If it's an "R" is 'gate' if it's a "D" it's time to move on...
Don't believe MSM lies - don't quote their lies - don't fall for their lies...
Oh please... Stop making sense ....
Actually, if all he wanted was an October Surprise, he still could have used this attack. You just come out with a big media campaign going after the attackers. Get the entire country rallying around blasting the evil terrorist that killed Stevens. Bush was untouchable after 911 and that was an attack on our own soil. Why Obama would walk away and hide an easy to use October Surprise attack, is real perplexing. He was hiding something, not surprising something.
Hillary needed Romney to win so she could run a four year 2016 campaign of harrassing him, and have a reason to stay in the public's political eye when she was out of government.
So it would serve Hillary's purpose to sabotage Obama's faked kidnapping of Stevens (which would have been real to Stevens).
How to sabotage it? Hmmm... WWHD? (What Would Hillary Do?)
I know! How about machine gun everyone in sight, kill the ambassador and burn the place to the ground!
You know, Hillary's traditional "light touch." her "nuance." Her freeking trademark: blood everywhere.
What's Obama going to do, complain she screwed up his kidnapping of his own ambassador?
And yet, Obama won.
Keeping Hillary out of the White House cannot be minimized, no matter what the cost.
After all, wouldn't you trade four terribly difficult years to save a hundred million American lives?
Article has been scrubbed ... or the link is wrong.
I was at a dinner party last night with a bunch of friends - all a hodgepodge of varying political persuasions, with me probably being the most conservative. Half voted for Romney I do know that... A discussion of Benghazi ensued and it needed to be explained for some in the group who simply don’t have time to catch up on the news. I brought up the botched, pre-planned kidnapping theory designed to make President Zero look like a hero and was immediately laughed at and labelled a conspiracy theorist.
Not sure what to think of this theory anymore — but where is the article??
I think the kidnappers hoped to flush out the Ambassador from his "safe room" with the fire, but didn't expect him to be overcome by smoke or disoriented or whatever kept him from getting out of the building. They rejoiced when they recovered him alive and took him to the hospital to be revived. They surrounded the hospital and waited, but the Stevens didn't survive. Whoever ordered the kidnapping apparently had help from the Libyan government who kept the rescue team from Tripoli bottled up at the Benghazi airport for hours, but brought in as foot soldiers a real B-team who screwed it up.
Both of those elements indicate to me that it was a botched kidnapping with high level support.
Thanks. I did some additional research even though I should be sleeping... came across this blog, which I think summarizes the theory pretty well.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
That’s a very interesting scenario. Unfortunately, its probably also impossible to prove.
And even if you could prove it, you’d still have a majority of Americans screaming to “move on”.
When I clicked on the source, the link did not work. What did the article say?
