Posted on 01/17/2014 4:33:42 AM PST by Old Badger
The truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, is finally coming out.
An explosive intelligence report made public this week revealed that officials knew it was a terrorist attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012and they knew right away. It also revealed that the lapse in security was preventable, based on intelligence the U.S. already had about the area.
These new answers are unsettling.

Hasn’t CNN and PMSNBC been claiming the fault lies with the guy who got raped to death?
I will believe the truth is coming out when I begin to see the story about the cover up as the lead in story in the MSM, aside from FOX. I would wait till I saw a feeding freenzy in the press room wherein CarneyBoy does not get away with some sarcastical comment shutting down a question of Henry but rather a host of follow up questions going around whatever the press secretary wishes to put out. I recall Nixon being grilled constantly about Watergate no matter what he wanted to say and during the Iran Contra matter, the press secretary being bombarded with constant vile commentary. Today, one question a shut down of that line and then crickets.
And didn’t Sam Donaldson yell out his questions? No more inquiring minds, just followers.
No it isn't.
I don't think it was a terrorist attack, unless Pearl Harbor was also a terrorist attack.
It was a complex enemy military operation of at least platoon and possibly company size, that had little or nothing to do with the "consulate" (which was not a consulate). The target was the "annex" (which was not annexed to anything we know about), and specifically the contents of a building there, called later the "warehouse".
The "demonstration" actually WAS a demonstration, in the sense of a show of force to divert defenders from an actual target. The "demonstrators" got sucked into a firefight that was unexpected, the non-consulate consulate burned, and Stevens asphyxiated. Collateral damage.
When the 30 or so defenders of the warehouse were evacuated and then were disappeared (WHERE ARE THEY? WHO WERE THEY?), so did the story about the overrunning of the warehouse and the removal of its contents.
Calling the enemy soldiers who accomplished this feat "terrorists" is pure misdirection, which conceals more than it reveals.
"Benghazi" had nothing to do with Stevens. It was a coordinated attack on the "annex" to capture whoever or whatever was there, and it was successful.
Yes, the MSM, like CNN, now blame the raped Ambassador.
This corrupt Administration and its MSM-”Pravda” have
no shame, whatsoever.
The socialists at BBC are blaming the homo ambassador, too.
What will be done about it? The news media “story’s been covered nothing new here”,democrats with media saying amen “republicans are just trying to politicize a tragedy! The Republicans “ we’ve conducted investigations but are still working on it. As we move forward this shouldn’t overshadow the necessary bipartisan support needed to accomplish true comprehensive immigration reform that will bring people out of the shadows,help the economy and with additional HB 1 visas assist our high tech industries with jobs the Americans won’t do.”
The presence of Saddam's WMDs would have completely vindicated Pres. Bush in his Iraq action.
Hoa about the White House using a racial stereotype to try to sell it as something else?
Kadafi feared air attack because of Reagan’s successful strike against him. He had one of the largest inventories of manpads missiles in the entire third world — 21,000 of them.
If the FBI learned right wing operatives had just 20 such missiles the political reacttion would be galvanizing.
What is known is that the attackers game and not 20 missiles but instead hundreds that night from the warehouse. They were also rumors they be captured comrades imprisoned there.
The political volte-face we have seen in Bengazi coverage we have seen in the past week is striking - a good guess is this is in CIA parlance a limited hang-out aimed at concealing something far darker and greater.
Since such concessions draw nearer to compromising Hillary’s 2016 run then the full truth must be something amazing.
not only a false narrative, but a racist one at that...
Why Did the Benghazi Story Change?
Obama is like a 3 year old child telling a lie. Even though telling the truth would get him in less trouble; he resorts to telling lies anyway.
What difference does it make???
It was that anti-muslim video. That's our story and we're sticking to it.
Considering the “fact” this was at least the 4th attempt at concocting a version of the “spontaneous” lie and there have been 2 more attempts at concocting a version of the “spontaneous” lie following this attack, you have to look at the “spontaneous” lie as the objective.
The contents of the warehouse was more than likely “payment” for the attack.
Look at that picture!!!!! How the H*LL did we allow people like this to run our country..our lives?????????????
Nothing can justify the irresponsible and disastrous Iraq action.
Nothing is more responsible for the situation we find ourselves in today.
If Bush had nuked Tora Bora in December 2001, he and Saddam would have been besties the very next day, and Saddam's army would have helped immeasurably in the conquest of Saudi Arabia - still unfinished business, with us incomparably weaker.
When Bush made the decision to fight another Vietnam war in South Asia, he made the rise of the radical Left inevitable.
There is a really simple explanation for the false narrative pushed by the Emperor and his minions - the “October Surprise” so rightfully feared by Presidential politicians happened on September 11, 2012.
That attack effectively destroyed the Emperor’s foreign policy plank less than two months before the elections. There was no recovery if the Emperor and his minions told the truth.
So, what was more important to those living inside the beltway - telling us the truth or getting reelected? Yes, it was a rhetorical question.
BTW - I wonder what will be done for that poor man so publically arrested and imprisoned, without a trial, for the last 20 plus months? After all, the bases for these political actions has been proven demonstrability false. This question, occurring in a mid-term election cycle, will not be answered because of the political impacts this coming November.
Thinking is a function and capacity once enjoyed by most Americans which they have chosen to abandon in favor of pre-packaged information morsels dished out by the central planners just like the cloned fast food menus developed in corporate kitchens............
What matter, at this point, does it make? We KNEW there was a problem during the debate with Romney and Obama...but Romney, as all good Republicans do, avoided the subject. Then it MATTERED because an election hinged upon it. So now the hearings have produced a scathing, bipartisan report. I repeat, what matter, at this point, does it make?
I cant imagine Reagan, Bush or even Carter acting the way Obama did during this attack. They would have been engaged the entire night demanding action from the military or where ever they could get it.
Going to Las Vegas the next day? Concocting a lie about it?
Friendly relations with the people of Iraq plus a military presence there was well worth the Iraq action.
It was the Democraps and their media lapdogs who made it disastrous.
Wheels within wheels within wheels... An investigation into arm sales to cover actual arm sales to cover discovered WMD to cover a kidnapping to cover a murder to stop a political defection.
“Friendly relations with the people of Iraq”
Maybe Hertitage could begin by asking or investigating WHY WAS OUR AMBASSADOR DOING IN BENGHAZI IN THE FIRST PLACE ?
IT SEEMS TO ME THAT QUESTION IS RADIOACTIVE,no one will go there,WHY FOLKS?
>> 30 or so defenders of the warehouse were evacuated and then were disappeared (WHERE ARE THEY? WHO WERE THEY?)
>> How the H*LL did we allow people like this to run our country
The same way we allow the Uniparty to foist mental defectives upon us: Pelosi & Boehner.
