Washington, DC We all know about the notorious Obama Kill List. CIA Director John Brennan proudly told us about that last year when he described how the O-Team decides which Americans should be executed by Hellfire Missile fired from remotely piloted aircraft (RPAs). Why hasnt the White House used this capability to take out those who killed our diplomats in Benghazi, Libya last year?
Clip and save this column. Herein are some important events, names, places facts your children and grandchildren will need to know about these perilous times:
Tuesday, September 11, 2012, Benghazi, Libya. The U.S. consulate and a diplomatic annex in this city on the Mediterranean coast are assaulted and destroyed by radical Islamic terrorists. Four American citizens: U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith and two former Navy SEALS, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods, are killed during two attacks over a seven-hour period. Officials in Washington take no action to stop the attacks or save lives.
Wednesday, September 12, 2012. The President, standing beside Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, describes what happened in Benghazi as an outrageous attack and promises, We will not waiver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. And make no mistake, justice will be done. For weeks thereafter, White House officials, the Secretary of State and lesser government functionaries, reiterate Obamas claim the attack was fomented by a crude anti-Muslim video posted on the Internet. Its not true.
Thursday, October 4, 2012. Thirty-two days before the presidential election, and desperate to preserve the fiction that al Qaeda is on the ropes because Osama bin Laden is dead, the State Department announces formation of an Accountability Review Board (ARB) headed by former U.S. Ambassador Tom Pickering and a recently retired Joint Chiefs Chairman. Though the Reagan White House provided Pickering with extraordinary additional security when he was threatened by terrorists in El Salvador, the ARB report, delivered on December 20, 2012, found mid-level State Department officials were responsible for security lapses in Benghazi.
Wednesday, Jan 23, 2013. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testifies under oath before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. In response to questions posed by Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) about who attacked the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi and why, she explodes: What difference at this point does it make?
Wednesday, May 8, 2013, three brave men testify before the House Government Reform Committee about the lies, misfeasance, and incompetence in the Obama administrations handling of the jihadist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya, the highest-ranking American diplomat in the country during the attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former U.S. Marine and operations coordinator for the State Departments Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, formerly the senior diplomatic security officer in Libya, all testify about what really happened on 9-11-12. To avail themselves of legal protections against retribution, all three claim status as whistleblowers.
Their testimony indicts the President, the Secretary of State and Administration minions of incompetence and lying to the public about what happened before, during and after the Benghazi attacks. Supporters of the Obama regime describe the three as politically motivated and claim there is nothing new in what they said. Thats not true either. Herewith, a few important facts we now know thanks to the courage of these three men:
Though radical Islamists routinely use anniversaries to motivate adherents to violence, the Obama administration did absolutely nothing to anticipate such a possibility by pre-positioning quick-reaction military forces in the Middle East prior to the 9-11-12 attacks. Worse, instead of granting Ambassador Stevens repeated requests for additional security assets, the O-Team actually reduced U.S. security personnel in Libya. This abysmal failure reflects, inter alia, a near total deficit of human intelligence (HUMINT). The Ambassador and three other Americans paid for this misfeasance with their lives.
In the midst of the deadly attacks in Benghazi, bureaucratic inertia and infighting in Washington prevented any response which might have saved lives. In the aftermath, the Obama administration insulted the Libyan government by refuting their assertion that the perpetrators were radical Islamists. The result: more than two weeks before FBI agents could visit the scene of the crime.
Since 9-11-12, the Benghazi terror attack has been probed by five separate committees of Congress. The State Departments ARB is at best a whitewash. Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) and more than 140 of his colleagues have called for a bi-partisan select committee of both houses to fully investigate the matter. Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham support the proposal. Its time unless Congress wants to participate in a cover up.
The only explanation is that Obama is a covert Muslim doing what the Koran demands of him. That along with his overt Marxist background should spell danger “Will Robinson”.
I agree, and there’s evidence of that over the years.
Did you notice how Greg Hicks pointed out the extreme accuracy by which Woods and Doherty were shot on that roof? He seemed to be making some point by mentioning that.
I cannot say that Juan McCain and Graham’s support of a new investigation gives me any great hope. They probably want to be on that commission so that they help in the cover-up.
Yes: I don’t trust them that much.
You are 100% correct. King Obama is a communists black Muslim. Perhaps many have forgot that his youth was mostly as a Muslim in Indonesia.
Same feeling here. All of a sudden it’s safe to come out of the woodwork and posture in favor of the dead. Where were these two clowns six months ago? Are they going to help the Dems smooth this one over in the spirit of bipartisan chumship, so they can get back to important things like gun control and open borders?
Obama, Clinton and their lapdogs cannot be happy with the testimony of any of the three and Mr. Thompson looked like a man on a mission.
Absolutely agree, neither can be trusted.
Ideally, Hillary goes to jail. (ain’t going to happen)
2nd, Hillary gets tattooed with the label of negligent homicide.
3rd, Hillary is dragged through the mud and eventually says something really stupid and useful in a campaign video. (add that to “what difference does it make”)
These two have sold us out before—and will do so again.
Democrats couldn’t wait to spotlight the responsible parties in the killing of Bin Laden. Bashful Biden ratted out Seal Team Six as soon as he could, as did obama, and others of their ilk.
But, suddenly, with Benghazi, they’re not so anxious to spotlight the responsible parties. Wonder why. C’mon, Joe, brag a little more.
I love O.N.!!
The question every American should be asking themselves
is, if they did this, what else have they done?
Well said. She won’t go to the slammer though she deserves it.
I believe the most we can for is her treasonous actions cost her the nomination.
“The question every American should be asking themselves
is, if they did this, what else have they done?”
And what will they do in the future. I have absolutely no confidence in our current administration at all. They are doing everything which destabilizes America, it’s citizens and destroys our Constitution.
Here are THE THREE TESTS OF TRUTH.
1. Logical consistency.
2. Agreement with experience.
3. Economy of explanation.
I say Hillary and Obama and the senior Democrat leaders are just thieves.
Compare my explanation, using THE THREE TESTS OF TRUTH, with the explanations that they are socialists or Moslems.
I think he should have used the word malfeasance
