After much thought and consideration of the fact that Hillary fled to Australia in advance of the Benghazi hearings, today it finally dawned on me who possibly brainstormed the White House' cover story for the terrorist attack in Benghazi. That person would be Hillary Clinton's top aide, Huma Abedin.
Huma: "Here. Try this idea.. How about a protest over a video on YouTube?"
It is known that Huma Abedin has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and as a Muslim would be the White House's logical choice when looking for propaganda to explain away the attack in Benghazi.
As a result of Petraeus' testimony today, we now know that someone in the White House changed his stated cause of the Benghazi terrorist attack to a 'protest over an Anti-Islam video'. It would seem logical that someone intimately familiar with Islam or Muslim culture be consulted to assist in developing the cover story that 0bama was looking for.
In brainstorming a cover story at the White House, "What are some things that could trigger a protest there?" would be the first question asked. Next, the first person to come to mind would be Huma Abedin. "Yeah, SHE would know!".. Hillary was probably involved at this point and with Huma's brilliant 'video' idea, a cover story was born. This set the stage for Susan Rice's appearances on all the Sunday news programs for a propaganda tour aimed at saving Obama's re-election.
that’s a good question
I bet even the Libyan Terrorists Attackers were scratching their head over that one:
“Hey, Abdul, Mo’- they are saying we were pissed over a video- what video? do you know anything about some video?”
I think Hillary Clinton did it.
..consulting her top aide, Huma Abedin, yes.
Good point. Round them all up for testimony before an Indepedennt Prosecutor. Watergate redux, only this is for an actual high crime.
Definitely the State Dept. The vid was tracked back to belonging to a contractor who works for the State Dept.
Valerie Jarrett , of course .....
Val Jar! Bingo!
That was exactly my first thought, too - Huma Abedin.
Obama had to approve the lie and cover up. He repeated it through the following two weeks including his big deal speech at the UN.
Just a side note on the Benghazi topic while I think of it.
Notice how...”fog of war” shows up in some articles on this topic?
Hillary was the first one I heard say that.
These 3 put their little brains together to hatch the cover story: Obama, Jarrett and Rice.
And, do you remember at first they were trying to tie the Terry Jones Koran burning guy from Florida to it? They were.
Look at this Daily beast article that was rather quickly published on Sept 12 with a link to the you tube video pushing this Terry Jones connection.
It was total ploy using known suspect/scapegoats and using a friendly media outlet, Daily Beast (and others) to get this make believe ruse story out immediately when it happened.
This stinks all over the place. This was probably an open ended ruse developed well before Benghazi to be used when needed.
Huma’s parents are respected muslim-brotherhood supporters in Egypt where we soaw supposedly ‘video protest’, not remotely related to Benghazi terrorist attack.
Did not the protest originate in Eqypt, where Huma’s muslim-brotherhood parents live?
You’re making the error of thinking that Hillary or State has any say in how things are done.
This decision came out of Chicago. It was, after all, primarily a political issue, not one of national security.
(did I forget the /sarc tag?)
Who's in charge of the State Department? Secretary of State
Who's the Secretary of State? Hillary Clinton
Who's in Australia right now? RUN, HILLARY RUN!!! (And I DON'T mean 'for office')
Not a chance.
No question, it helped to gin up protest demonstrations in a variety of wog locales. However, Benghazi was not among them, as any moron reading the New York Times or the Boston Globe would have known a day or two later. Benghazi was a military assault, not a protest demonstration gone out of control.
We have, for example, the testimony of Ethan Chorin, who was in Benghazi with Dr. Thomas Burke of Mass General, Boston. They were there to assist Libyan doctors in setting up an Emergency Room operation at the Benghazi Medical Center. They and the Libyan doctors were slated to meet with Ambassador Stevens Wednesday morning, the 12th.
On the evening of the 11th, Chorin was on the phone with the Ambassador's security detail arranging the meeting, when the call ended abruptly with a shout of "We've got a problem here". Then Chorin and Burke were left to hole up in their hotel listening to sounds of the distant violence. And the Libyan doctors ended up treating the Ambassador unsucessfully at the BMC for severe asphyxia.
IOW, no demonstration, no build-up. Just a sudden surprise attack by Al Qaeda. Which we now know would not have been a surprise, but for the incompetence of the Obama / Clinton State Department.
And no need to muddy the waters with bogus conspiracy theories. The facts are good enough!
