Posted on 12/30/2013 3:43:17 AM PST by LD Jackson
It would appear that Benghazi is back in the news. For some of us, it has remained in the forefront of our minds, but for many Americans, it is past history. I am sure no small amount of wonder is expressed that we are still concerned about what happened in Benghazi, some fifteenth months later. My personal concern is that four Americans were killed and no one has truly been held accountable for their deaths. Americans were fed a false narrative by the Obama administration and over the weekend, the New York Times published a 7,000 word report that attempted to portray the lies told us by Obama and company as the gospel truth. Never mind that so many people who were actually on the ground at Benghazi have said the lies were everything but the truth.
Ask yourselves this simple question. Why would the New York Times expend so much time and effort to back the Obama administration's narrative about Benghazi? Could it be they are simply trying to build a back story that will clear Hillary Clinton's name before she runs for President in 2016? That's a distinct possibility that deserves to be pondered.
Even more troubling is a story that I found on Politico. It says there are six reasons why the story of Benghazi will stay alive. Read 'em and weep.
There is every reason to believe Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods were victims of an administration caught with their pants down around their ankles. They were left to die by an administration woefully unprepared for the attack. This is especially true, given that it came smack in the middle of Obama's reelection campaign against Mitt Romney. I can understand something like this catching them off guard, but the lies that were told afterwards is more than I can stomach.
In this day and age in America, someone is always looking to hold someone else responsible for their actions. Gun manufacturers are under attack because they built the gun that was used to kill someone. Tobacco companies were sued by people who got cancer from smoking their products. Police officers have to be on their guard because they could possible be sued for doing their jobs poorly, or possibly too well, given the circumstances. But the lies about Benghazi continue.
The administration responsible for the cover up refuses to face that responsibility. It's easier to continue the lies and hope the American people will forget all about what happened that night in Benghazi. Let this serve as a notice to them. Some in the media may continue to perpetrate the lies told by the Obama administration. They may continue to cover for Hillary Clinton as she gets ready to make her last bid for the White House. That may work on some Americans, but not on those of us who really care about the lives that were lost. This has nothing to do with damaging the Obama administration or Hillary Clinton and everything to do with wanting to know what happened and honoring the four men who were killed.
It doesn't really matter if you are a Republican or Democrat, conservative or liberal. If you are an American, you should care about what happened. It's as simple as that.
I can’t help but notice something all four dead individuals have in common.
Hillary will run in ‘16. Every time Benghazi comes up, she’ll quote the NYT!
“There is every reason to believe Christopher Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods were victims of an administration”
You should have stopped there. Yhe facts about Benghazi show that the administration was forewarned and chose to ignore it. The deep story is that they knew and allowed it. The even deeper story is that they planned it.
I think they should waterboard david petraeus.
the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?--Hillary Clinton to Republican senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.
Hard o understand why the Times even printed that lie.
The story was slowly dying, Issa’a investigation didn’t amount to squat and it would have been better for Hillary just leaving the scab on that wound.
THE LINGERING LIE The September 11, 2012 attacks on the U.S. diplomatic compound in Benghazi precipitated the murders of the American Ambassador three other American citizens. Yet, Susan Rice, who got her NSA job b/c she toadied for Obama---parroting the WH "video" script---is still trying to pump her resume---to convince us nothing really happened.
PUMP MY LOUSY RESUME, PLEASE Susan Rice was on TV a-g-a-i-n---on 60 Minutes. She can't get enough TV time to save her sorry a**---to continue the Benghazi lie and the cover-up. Forget the video---the cover story now includes "national security" as the rationale.
Rice figures that should be enough to pump up her sorry resume.
Better to cover up what happened than to let the entire world know about Hillary's involvement....part of her shady MO to get into the WH in 2016.
LET'S STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE In 2009, Obama made a "Smart Power" suck-up speech in Cairo----"apologizing" for America's historical role in the Middle East. By snubbing Mubarak, Obama set the stage for the Egyptian president's overthrow by the Islamic mob.
When the worst-case scenario happened, when Obama's personal choice---Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Morsi, was elected president----Obama sap-happily sent his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to Cairo to personally kiss-up to Morsi....perhaps at that time hatching their plans to destroy Westen civiliation in compliance w/ Muslim dictates.
Obama's treacherous ill-advised component of US foreign policy----sucking up to the very people who want to kill us and destroy our churches. He portrayed teeming Muslim majorities there as "victims of Western colonialism and Cold War policies," stupidly promoting American-style democracy for these conflicting cultures w/ thousands of years of religious and territorial factionalism.
OBOBO'S SUCKUP "The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars," Obama said in the June 2009 speech in Cairo. "More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies, without regard to their own aspirations."
Fast forward to 2013: the savage Muslim Brotherhood torched some 63 Egyptian churches and many Christian businesses. Obama ignored the bloodbath and spent the crisis dining out, golfing, power-partying, and vacationing in exclusive Marthas Vineyard on the taxpayers' dime.
Rice stupidly advised Boobamba to phone Gen al-Sisi from MV. But al Sisi refused to take the call knowing Boobamba planned to order the general to call off his beating back the Muslim Brotherhood .
OBAMA: "First, let's make sure the cameras get this staged
photo-op to pump your resume. Now what lie should I tell the
American people about Egypt?"
RICE: "After saying 'the Taliban is on the run and Osama Bin Laden
is dead'.... tell 'em Gen al-Sissi is a big sissy for not taking your phone call."
(Q.) Who holds the key to unlocking the Benghazi secrets Obama and Hillary will not divulge?
(A.) That would be Egyptian Gen Al-Sisi who drove blood-thirsty Muslims out of Egyptian politics and has vowed to rebuild the 63 churches torched by the Muslim Brotherhood.
Right now, sitting in an Egyptian jail is a man al-Sisi arrested for inciting terrorism. That man is Gehad al Hadad....once employed by the tax-exempt Clinton Foundation.
THE CLINTONS IN-HOUSE MUSLIM TERRORIST the Clintons tax-exempt foundation employed a Muslim Brotherhood activist.
(The stupid Clintons did not know Gehad was Farsi for "jihad")
Gehad also knows how the Muslim Brotherhood launders money to finance terrorism, using "tax-exempt foundations."
As far as I know, Egypt does not have any limitations on obtaining information from terrorists---like prohibiting waterboarding, etc.
Rest assured---we will know everything---all in good time.
There is nothing honorable about Hillary Clinton.
Re: “Honorable Hillary Clinton”
If I had and knew how to use photoshop, I would strike a line through the word.
“What difference does it make?”.....
Keep that in front at every possible opportunity. Throw it right in their faces day after day, commercial after commercial, news story after news story. I would never let them forget and make the demodummies wish they had never heard of Hitlary Clintooon.
We need to keep this active and take it to the 2014 elections.
Senator should have responded to Hillary:
“The difference, Madame Secretary, is THE TRUTH!”
“And the American people and this Senate deserve and DEMAND THE TRUTH!”
“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that this was important enough for Susan Rice, The President, and YOU, TO LIE ABOUT SOME BOGUS VIDEO!”
“The difference, Madame Secretary, is that in spite of the fact nobody had any way of knowing how long the attack would last, and yet FORCES PREPARED TO EFFECT A RESCUE WERE ORDERED TO STAND DOWN!”
“Madame Secretary, because you come before this body, and arrogantly and loudly proclaim that you do not recognize what difference it makes, I DEMAND THAT YOU SUBMIT YOUR RESIGNATION, IMMEDIATELY!”
“3. People don’t agree on what Al Qaeda is.”
Maybe they aren’t the enemy.
The definition of treason is aiding and abetting THE ENEMY of The United States Of America. The Obama administration must have been caught aiding and abetting Al Qaeda. The Democrats can’t change the definition of treason, but they can try to make people believe that Al Qaeda isn’t the enemy. This move by the paid liars for the Democrats to sanitize Al Qaeda is treasonous of itself. We are going to need a lot of rope. These people are so used to lying for the Democrats that they can’t see that they’ve condemned themselves to death.
And the rest of the media will quote the NYT as if this "report" is the final verdict. They are just covering for the first female president-to-be.
That would do it.
The lame stream media defines what is news these days, most Americans follow blindly.
Please answer this simple question,What was our ambassador doing in Benghazi in the first place,a known Alqueda stronghold in a house in a residential neighborhood with security that did not meet the standards for a mission,let alone a consulate ?
The embassy in Libya is in Tripoli not Benghazi,Answer the first question and the whole sordid affair will unravel.
