Sarah Palin: Tomorrow’s hearings on Benghazi will define the Obama presidency, If the truth..
Sarah Palin Face Book ^ | May 7, 2013 | Sarah Palin

Posted on 05/07/2013 8:20:25 PM PDT by onyx

Tomorrow’s hearings on Benghazi will define the Obama presidency if the truth is finally allowed to be told. I encourage everyone to tune in and hear the revelations that are long overdue. We’ll also see whether the president’s reliable lapdog cheerleaders in the media will continue to cover up for him and in so doing disgrace their profession. The following link is to something I posted way back on October 25th of last year asking questions that we should have had answers to long ago.

- Sarah Palin

There are many questions about the Benghazi attack that Americans deserve answers to. It’s been too long an “investigation” and too tragic for the families of lost loved ones for the White House and its friends in the media to ignore these questions:

- When and why did the YouTube trailer of the anti-Muhammad movie surface as any kind of credible reason for the attack?

- Where is the proof that that video was linked to Benghazi? It’s a weak excuse to claim some supposed rumored link between Benghazi and the attacks on our embassy in Cairo. Benghazi was very different. “Spontaneous” protestors don’t come armed with rocket-propelled grenades.

- What was the President’s response to the previous Benghazi embassy attacks in April and June? Why did officials ignore the requests for beefed up security to protect Americans after these attacks?

- Why did the Obama Administration assume a YouTube video was the reason for the Benghazi attack but not all the evidence to the contrary from the postings and emails that circulated that night in real time as the attack took place and Americans were being killed? And why weren’t those emails disclosed until this week?

- Why did the Obama administration spend our tax dollars to make and air television ads that ran in the Middle East apologizing for the YouTube video when they had so much credible evidence that it was nothing but a red herring?

- How much did President Obama know about this? In an interview he gave to CBS News on September 12, President Obama alluded to the fact that the Benghazi attack was not—as his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials were characterizing it—a “spontaneous” protest triggered by the Cairo embassy attack and the video. He told CBS News in that interview, “my suspicion is that there are folks involved in [the Benghazi attack] who were looking to target Americans from the start.” If he suspected this then why did he allow his administration to continue blaming the attack on the YouTube video? And why didn’t CBS News call him out on this when his comments in their interview with him, which they didn’t air until a month later, belie the administration’s YouTube narrative?

Someone in the media must demand answers. Until the media does its job to give us the Who What Where When and Why of this cover-up, there will be even less trust for this “cornerstone of our democracy” – if less trust and respect for the media is even possible today. We sincerely want to be able to trust the media. We need to be able to trust them. Their job is so important, and we appreciate all the good journalists in America. Our troops fight to protect all our freedoms including the freedom of the press.

- Sarah Palin

I hope Governor Palin doesn’t believe that Osama Obama gives a rat’s hindquarters about these hearings.That would be silly to believe.

Wow, you are quick. Just went to Sarah’s FB page to post a message of support on this posting of hers.

We need the truth to be revealed, and I hope it torpedoes the SS Obama.

Speak out and keep speaking out, Governor Palin!

Someone in the media must demand answers.

The Obummer administration is nothing but a den of rattlesnakes, unfortunately the majority of the media not only covers for them but feeds them. As you say, we need answers.

And most importantly why did Obama not give a CBA, i.e., why did he order the stand-down ?

IMHO, that’s the real question.

Everything else distracts from the real question.

Oh, he cares. But I guess he is confident that the phalanx of reporters will pour out a torrent of words to keep him from having to answer the questions that Plain proposes. He hopes in the end to be more popular than ever.

They’ll (radical left wing extremist demokkkrat scumbag socialists) do their darndest to keep the truth covered and lies will fly. Except for the eye witnesses. They may tell the truth but they will be vilified and called liars by the dems who will protect their own like no tomorrow. When the dust clears king hussein will be unscathed as will the hildebeast.

My apologies. It sucks I know. Maybe I just don’t have enough faith in the “powers that be” anymore. Hopefully I will be proven wrong. At least I’m hopin’ so. This is one time I would be more than happy to say: “Man was I WRONG on that!” Of course we’d be facing 3+ years of jojo biteme being in charge. The gift that keeps on giving.

I don't think I would call it unreal. The politicians have priors, and under most conditions, will do the wrong thing virtually every time. Like rktman, I would love to be wrong, but, as I mentioned, they have priors.

A lot of people (eyewitnesses or whistleblower) who apparently are not on TeamObama/Hillary will have to die or be silenced to stop the truth from eventually coming out. I don’t see that happening without major alarms going up

Before, in other scandals there were a lot of enablers who protected Obama but this seem different. They were there and are contradicting O and Hillary

Defeatists, no.

Realists, yes.

Politicians can't help but mug, preen, and show off when a camera is focused on them.

The witnesses testimony will be secondary to the blowhards pontifications from the dais.

As usual.

I think we REALLY need to re-examine. When the ABSOLUTE FIRST REACTION BY NEARLY EVERY FReeper is gloom, doom and negativity, it seems to me we DO have a congenital problem going here. I share the pessimism, but it seems like we ought to leave room for just a LITTLE optimism. This constant negativity isn’t doing anyone any good ... Remember, there are FReepers and lurkers who are ACTUALLY involved in this and may be in that hearing tomorrow in an official capacity ... Let’s not destroy their spirit and let them down!

“And most importantly why did Obama not give a CBA, i.e., why did he order the stand-down ?”

This man lied through the debates, with the assistance of that Crowley-hag and kept all of those Benghazi survivors sequestered and silent until after the election. Where the hell were they in September and October?

Now that he won, he’s been partying like a rock star and spending his days golfing.

He’s living it up on our dime in case the door ends up hitting him in the ass right quick....

We need the parents, and family, of the victims demand answers. Their pleas should be on every hourly newscast, the media should broadcast their pleas answers 24/7.

Sponsors, hiding in the shadows, could pay for all travel and per diem.

All we need is a community organizer to plan and manage that parade
