The Epicenter Of Benghazi – Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor in 2012 .....
theconservativetreehouse ^ | May 13, 2013 | sundance

….. and we’re not JUST talking about the 12 version “talking points”, but the epicenter of the actual White House response – or, lack thereof.

Perhaps now the media has accepted the fact that the “talking points” were highly manipulated, they will turn their investigative eye onto the origin, and subsequently on to something we outlined earlier:

Back in January  we posted a discussion around a newly released photo from the White House. The picture was taken in the oval office on Sept 11th 2012m the date of the Benghazi attack.

At the time we thought the picture was worth a thousand words.  After research, and with the hindsight of the latest revelations, it appears we were correct. Yet again, it provides more sunlight into the events surrounding the Benghazi, Libya events and who made the critical decisions in those moments of crisis.

At 5pm, according to the White House and media reports, President Obama was set for a prior scheduled meeting with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Chairman of Joint Chiefs Martin Dempsey.   It was just prior to this meeting that White House National Security Advisor Tom Donilon tells President Obama of the attack and the fire at the main villa…

…..how long the meeting took is unknown, but we do know by 6:30pm President Obama and Joe Biden were on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

"by 6:30pm President Obama and Joe Biden were on the phone with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu."

Put on your thinking caps and ask yourselves WHY. This is part of the reason 'sam bacile' was FIRST purported to be an Israeli Jewish billionaire. THAT WAS THEIR COVER STORY.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Isn't McDonough the same guy at the table, sitting between O and Hillary in the White House during the ben Laden hit?

Wonder if he was in our outside the loop that night on whoever made the decision to carry through on that raid, the event that pulled O off the golf course?

Im not sure if I understand. In relationship to what was going on in Benghazi when was the picture taken.

CAN ANY FREEPER MAKE OUT BIDEN’S NOTES? I CAN READ SOMETHING THAT SAYS PUT SOMETHING IN DVR?

Is the start of Obama and Co. learning of the Benghazi raid and telling McDonough, “Look, we don’t want another Iran hostage situation before the election. Take care of it, but don’t send troops in. We’ll see if we can get around this some other way. etc.”

Also, why would he be calling Netanyahu

McDonough was head of Strategic Communications for Zer0 during his first term. There was a thread here at FR about him and exactly what “Strategic Communications” is. Unfortunately, with FR’s ineffective “search” program, I'm unable to find it. At the time that thread was posted, I was trying to see ties between that office and the time-line of the 90% Myth, the “River of Iron of Guns”, Fast & Furious and Castaway.

Wish I could find that thread now, it plays right in to what this article is reporting.

Those aren’t notes in Biden’s hand—he’s getting ready to order Chinese takeout.

Concerning any military rescue assets outside of Libya: Obama didn't need to order a "stand down," all he needed to do was to not give his permission for a rescue, and disappear for the night.

From "The Longest Day"--

Major General Gunther Blumentritt: [in German] 'This is history. We are living an historical moment. We are going to lose the war because our glorious Führer has taken a sleeping pill and is not to be awakened. Sometimes I wonder which side God is on.'

Sam Bacile was the name they gave to the filmaker, an fbi asset outed by Walid Shoebat as an actual Egyptian muslim, Mark Basseley Youssef, formerly known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, whose partner was a falsestinian terrorist.
Nakoula is now in jail where no one can speak to him.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/09/12/sam-bacile-film_n_1878060.html

What we know about Bacile and his film comes solely from his own mouth. During an interview he gave Tuesday from an undisclosed location, Bacile said he was an Israeli-American real estate developer who raised $5 million from 100 Jewish donors, none of whom he identified. He doesn’t appear to have a California real estate license, according to a review of online real estate databases.

Yeah, he probably took 3 Ambien and retired for the night after his family quarters telephone chat with Netanyahu.

Thank you.

Although I think the thread I’m referring to came before last June, this article shows that my instincts at the time were right regarding McDonough and F&F.

Strategic communication management could be defined as the systematic planning and realization of information flow, communication, media development and image care in a long-term horizon. It conveys deliberate message(s) through the most suitable media to the designated audience(s) at the appropriate time to contribute to and achieve the desired long-term effect. Communication management is process creation. It has to bring three factors into balance: the message(s), the media channel(s) and the audience(s). . .

The Border Patrol agent getting killed put a monkey wrench into the administration's Strategic Communications to bring about gun control. Now, people surviving Benghazi has done the same for whatever was going on behind the curtain there.

(I'm still of the belief that it was a staged kidnapping gone bad)

Strategic Communications is nothing more than propaganda raised to an art form.

YUP!

Check out the link provided by MestMachine in Post #18.

This guy, McDonough, has been with Zer0 since at least his first Pres. campaign and has been under the radar. HE is the one who decides what gets released and when.

Thanks for posting this reality.

Too many are screaming for his no go, which wasn’t needed.
