Posted on 02/10/2014 4:56:39 PM PST by FreeAtlanta
The pieces of the Benghazi puzzle are falling into place and the conclusions are damning: Americas intelligence community, our leading military commanders and then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta knew within fifteen minutes of the commencement of hostilities on Sept. 11, 2012 that the American compound in Libya was attacked by Al Qaida-affiliated terrorists. Yet, President Barack Obama and his then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton conspired to deceive the American people in order to protect their mutual power. They deliberately downplayed the role of Islamic terrorists. benghaziemail-300x225They did so in order to win a second presidential term for the Democratic Party and in an attempt to preserve the reputation of Mrs. Clinton for her possible run at the top office in 2016. Now, more than a year later, the truth is emerging with devastating clarity. A bipartisan Senate Intelligence Committee report contains a key email, sent on Sept. 15, 2012, from the CIA station chief in Libya to then-CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell which states that the Benghazi attacks were not/not an escalation of protests. Mr. Morell received this information the day before then-Amb. Susan Rice delivered the infamous phony narrative on five Sunday talk shows: she said the violence occurred in a spontaneous manner due to protests against an anti-Muslim YouTube video.

Still waiting for Clinton to testify UNDER OATH. Oh wait - she’ll have another dizzy spell.
Why were The Five talking her up as a candidate contender today without mentioning this?
The admin lied, of course.

.. and the media will continue with the government to march people with its bayonets of lies and division (aka liberal fools lashing at us) until the very end.
The media should be impeached.
This is possible ONLY because the MSM continues to cover for the boy-king.
By the way, miss Romney yet?

The MSM is a good description of the Antichrist.
“By the way, miss Romney yet? “
I don’t miss Romney, Bob Dole, John McCain or either Bush. All were or would have been terrible presidents. They only look good in comparison to the disaster we are experiencing.
The nation deserves better than anyone either party has nominated since 1988.
OK. Let’s look at the defense put up by Hillary and Obama.
“Some people in the Middle East got mad about a video that was made about Muhammad, so they marched down and killed some Americans.”
Notice what it’s not. It’s not a defense of their actions before, during and after the attack. Why not? Wouldn’t they have been extremely scared of how their actions appeared? These are political experts and they are both lawyers. Wouldn’t their first concern have been to exonerate themselves? Instead, they talk, and they talk a LOT, about who was doing the killing. Why? Even on the political self-defense level, it makes no sense. And Hillary’s famous “What difference does it make?” statementisn’t about her response to the attack. She passionately tries to make the point that it doesn’t matter WHO killed the Americans. Ladies and gentlemen, these shyster lawyers are setting the courtroom up. When you are facing a Murder 1 charge and an Assault charge, you make damn sure you can beat the Murder 1 charge because that can get you the death penalty. Hillary and Obama are lawyers. They went to school to learn that. It makes a HUGE difference to them who is blamed for killing these four Americans. You see, their lives could depend on it. If Hillary and Obama provided support to the group that killed these four Americans, then they could be charged with treason. And treason can bring the death penalty. Do you still think it’s unusual that no one from this attack is in American custody? If they were caught, then their group could be identified. That group could then be linked to the actions of Hillary and Obama. This isn’t a couple of school kids caught smooching in the closet at school. Treason is serious business. And it’s not just serious to Hillary and Obama. It’s serious to the entire Democrat apparatus. Even the press has been hushing this up and that makes them accomplices.
Ya know, there was a time when I would of thought that anyone who said what I just wrote was a tinfoil hat lunatic. Now I just take it for granted and go from there.
Her Heinous will only entertain questions which concern labia..
Impeach and remove
While dodging the appearance is best (dizzy spell), do you really believe she'll have a problem lying, or at least dissembling, under oath?
Who issued the Stand Down order?
If Obama didn’t, then who issued that order without authority?
The obvious answer is that Obama gave the order. Otherwise there would be people up on at the very least dereliction of duty charges if not treason. As it turns out, the only people to "disappear" are the senior officers that attempted to intercede despite orders from on high.
Congress has to ask questions they know the answer to and make her lie repeatedly.

|Woo hoo!! And we're now over 49% looking for 50!! Thank you all very much!! We can do this.|
Things aren’t so clear cut. She can fail to remember, fake anger (”What difference does it make”) and otherwise run out the clock. Holder and Lerner and a host of other appointees did the same thing. Did they flat out lie, or did they just not tell the truth? Hillary would have no problem with either.
Here is a video of Rep. Chaffetz saying that Gen. Ham, commander of AFRICOM at that time, told him that assets were near enough to help and ready to go.There is no doubt whatsoever that the assets were in motion preparing to receive an order to go.
ADMIRAL LYONS: All those comforting words that We dont want to put our forces at risk. We had people at riskthey were crying for help! In a situation, you go with the resources you have availableand, in this particular case, we did have that 130-man Marine force recon team sitting there at Sigonella. Even if I only got 50 of them over there, that would have been significant in turning the situation around. We may not have been able to save the ambassador, but we certainly could have saved those other two SEALs that were over on the annex.
ADMIRAL LYONS: In perpetuating this lie, we also had administration officials lying to Congressional committees. Thats a felony. So, What difference does it make? It makes all the difference in the world. You cannot flaunt the truth here, just walk away from it and, basically, tell the American public to stuff it. Thats not acceptable.
The point on the organizing the two Marine anti-terrorist teams in Rota, that was good to go ahead and stand em up. What I find incomprehensible: The first team, it took them 23 hours to go a few hundred miles from Rota to Tripoli. I could go around the world in 23 hours, so that makes absolutely no sense to me.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
0bama refused to issue Cross Border Authority!
In other words, quit leaking evidence
The MSM is a good description of the Antichrist
DING! DING! DING!
WE HAVE A WINNER!
They also used the cheap attorney trick of “conditioned response”.
Telling an obvious lie over and over to get “the jury” to form it’s own opinion as to what the truth is.
In this case they kept repeating the lie the terrorist “spontaneously” responded to a protest in Egypt over a video.
Everyone was conditioned to say “there was no connection” to the video.
In reality the attack was planned then the video protest was planned to create the “spontaneous” lie.
No one was supposed to be killed, they were supposed to be taken hostage the same as with Jimmy Carter.
Since no one on “the jury” would believe the “spontaneous” lie “the jury” would be open for suggestions as to what did happen.
The Idea was to blame Mitt Romney and the repubs of collaborating with the terrorist to make Zippo look like Peanuts Carter.
Zippo wasn’t supposed to be reelected.
The hostages would have been released when Romney took office.
They were trying to create an “October Surprise II” for Hillary to run against Romney on in 2016.
People tend to forget Hillary is an attorney.
She’s not very good at it, but she is an attorney and she uses cheap attorney tricks to fool “the jury” which is the American people.
Hillary doesn’t even care if she fools every member of “the jury” just the people that matter the so called right wing opinion makers.
Horse, cart. Her being a candidate comes first. Then second. Then last. No Benghazi.
Elucidating the players shines light on the motives, and the motives inevitably wrap themselves around Obama and Clinton.
We're talking forty years in prison here, minimum. And that's if nobody gets really mad at them while they're on their way to Leavenworth.
Evidently, he didn't want to be called for questioning because he'd have to contradict what the WH was saying.
The coverup is about the fact that the U.S. was there at all.
After listening to Perino tonight, it sounds rather clear that she is a Hillary fan.
Hmmm...You lost me at “the idea was to blame Mitt Romney” and “zippy wasn’t supposed to be reelected”.
But I do agree with the diversionary tactics and also the theory that the witch and the doper were more interested in protecting their own @sses than they cared about American lives not their own.
The article states that nobama and the Hildabeaste had a meeting at State at 10:50am on Sept 12. I thought nobama headed out that morning to a campaign event in (I think) Las Vegas. Maybe he left after the meeting?
And still no answer to the central, defining question: Who issued the Stand Down order?
Drip, drip, drip. Y’all had enough yet?
People tend to forget the dems had a tribute to Peanuts Carter at their convention.
Now why would the dems want to associate Zippo with the failed 1 term President Carter?
Another cheap attorney trick to get right wing opinion makers to comparing Zippo to Carter and get the issue of “hostages” and “October surprise” into peoples minds before the fact of Benghazi and hostages being taken.
Four years of hearing how Romney stole the election and conspired with terrorist to make Obama look like Carter.
Repeat of what was done with Reagan and that’s almost an exact repeat of what Hillary did with Bush after 9/11/2001.
Go back and take a look at some of the orchestrated failures Zippo set up to take place after January 2013.
Just a few.
Undercounting the unemployment numbers before the election so the number would go up after January 2013. Blame it on Romney election.
Trayvon Martin case. No case there but blame it on white Republican racist al la Rodney King.
Red line with Syria. Obama even told us “his” credibility wasn’t on the line it was the credibility of the U.S. True statement had he not been reelected.
Stock market bubble from Fed pumping in money. If Romney didn’t appoint new head of Fed that would keep pumping in money, market would crash. Inflation if they did keep pumping in money. Either way republicans fault.
They could keep the lie going that everything was improving for 4 years but not for 8.
After 8 years of Obama’s failed policies both foreign and domestic it will be impossible for Hillary to ride Zippo’s coattails into the WH.
Easier for Hillary Zippo’s coattails in 2016 if Zippo set up a situation where Romney’s Presidency was guaranteed to be a failure and Hillary’s smear team constantly claimed Romney collaborated with terrorist to steal the election.
The left works on the principle “2 steps forward 1 step back” you will always win if the other guy takes “1 step forward and 2 steps back”.
Hmmm...I agree that Hillary running against a set-up Romney would have seemed more preferred than running following a certain to be miserable Obama record.
But I thought the whole “video did it” story was to get Obama re-elected...along with CYA for zero and the witch.
A pretty big gamble on their part to try to set up Romney but I definitely wouldn’t put it past Hillary - although hard to imagine Obama falling on his sword for her. Neither of them care about how many are hurt with their power mongering. What arrogant sociopaths - what makes them think they have the right to screw up our lives????
However don’t hold your breath waiting on Bonehead or Cantor or Issa
to do anything about it.
Damn good question. Next question is why do we think Fox news is all that different from the MSM?
Precedence dialing is still done on the military phone networks, but using number combinations (Example: Entering 93 before a number is a priority call) rather than the separate tones and the Government Emergency Telecommunications Service has superseded Autovon for any civilian priority telco access.
Present-day uses of the A, B, C and D keys on telephone networks are few, and exclusive to network control. For example, the A key is used on some networks to cycle through different carriers at will (thereby listening in on calls). Their use is probably prohibited by most carriers. The A, B, C and D tones are used in radio phone patch and repeater operations to allow, among other uses, control of the repeater while connected to an active phone line.
The *, #, A, B, C and D keys are still widely used worldwide by Amateur radio operators for repeater control, remote-base operations and VOIP-based communications systems.
DTMF tones are also used by some cable television networks and radio networks to signal the local cable company/network station to insert a local advertisement or station identification. These tones were often heard during a station ID preceding a local ad insert. Previously, terrestrial television stations also used DTMF tones to shut off and turn on remote transmitters.
DTMF signaling tones can also be heard at the start or end of some VHS (Video Home System) cassette tapes. Information on the master version of the video tape is encoded in the DTMF tone. The encoded tone provides information to automatic duplication machines, such as format, duration and volume levels, in order to replicate the original video as closely as possible.
The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have now taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East.
Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, the leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. "
Well, I’m a housewife. And I could tell at 2pm CST on 12 sept, 2012, that our embassy people, our diplomats were being thrown to the locals, in country, with a stupid lie for an excuse, that was making our country look stupid, weak and traitorous, uncaring of our diplomats and that it would never be right as long as this crew was in and tge media was being depended on for information and opinion
It will never go away until it is straightened out
Our enemies will never respect us
Yes, their announcement that day was right there and then obviously a disgusting insult to the intelligence of all who know anything about the players and recent history and players on the world’s stage. Ms Rice’s repeating a obvious lie on talk shows a few days later on a Sunday was a bad acting job with the same obvious lie and coverup of the facts.
That’s an excellent point.
Another factor that I can’t believe people miss is that 0vomit admin officials keep repeating that there would not have been enough time to send a rescue party. How could they have known in advance how much time there would be? During an attack and/or hostage situation, you have no way of knowing when it will end. (Unless perhaps you planned it yourself.)
The real communication of an attack is Priority One and goes out within SECONDS of an attack, must be sighed off on by all it is addressed to, recorded and logged. Such comms go directly to the President, SecDef, SecState personally, not to their offices.
Get that comm declassified and the cat will be officially out of the bag.
If you can find Hillary’s comments after Benghazi, listen closely to HOW she says what she say’s.
She places great meaning when she says “this government” had nothing to do with the video.
She also places great meaning on “we” when she said “we helped them”.
She was creating talking points for the left wing freaks to use in their defense and to blame Romney and the repubs.
Obama had attempted to create a version of the “spontaneous” lie with the airline plot just a few months before but the AP leaked info before he could.
Go back to 2010 and the attempted car bombing in NYC.
Prior to the attempted attack the left and their allies in the MSM went on a campaign claiming the TEA Party were a bunch of ultra violent, right wing extremist, racist, Tim McVeigh wannabes out to overthrow the govt.
After the attack the left jumped for joy and said their talking points about the TEA Party were correct because it was a fertilizer bomb just like Tim McVeigh used.
There is 1 of 4 possibilities for that attack.
1. The left orchestrated the news for the attack to blame it on TEA Party.
2. The terrorist are so in tune with the news the terrorist picked up on the lefts talking points and “spontaneously” planned an attack around them.
3. The TEA Party did it and the left was correct in their talking points.
4. It’s all just a big coincidence the terrorist attack matched the lefts talking points.
If the terrorist simply picked up on the lefts talking points and “spontaneously” planned an attack around it, you would need to go back check all the other attacks since 1993’s 1st WTC bombing to find out if it was possible the terrorist were picking up on the lefts talking points and planning attacks around them.
Is there a pattern to the lefts talking points and the terrorist attacks?
In fact there is.
Since 1993’s 1st WTC attack, prior to each and every terrorist attack, attempted attack, or threat of attack, the left has always ginned up civil unrest, attempted to gin up civil unrest, or had a plan to gin up civil unrest.
It never fails.
In fact every time the left drags up Rodney King in trying to gin up civil unrest, you can guarantee there is a terrorist attack coming.
Perfect example was Obama’s attempt at the “spontaneous” lie with the airline plot in 2012 which was derailed by the AP leak.
The terrorist gave the govt agent a bomb and told him it was his call to make WHEN the attack would take place.
The timing of announcing the threat of the attack was controlled by Obama.
Prior to it Obama sent people to Florida to gin up civil unrest with the Trayvon Martin case, described by the MSM as another Rodney King incident.
Obama controlled both ends, orchestrating the civil unrest and the timing of the attack, there is nothing spontaneous about it. The news was orchestrated for the attack.
In January 2006 the ACLU, with the help of Al Jazeera and Osama bin Laden making a tape threating an attack, attempted to create a version of the “spontaneous” lie by having the bin Laden tape released after the ACLU passed out video cameras in St Louise to get a repeat of a “Rodney King” type incident.
Problem is bin Laden made the tape before the ACLU passed out the video cameras.
The root of the “spontaneous lie” goes all the way back to the 1st WTC bombing.
The dems pushed Bush into sending troops into Somalia, then after the 1st WTC bombing claimed it was because Bush had sent troops into Somalia when in fact the plans for the attack started in 1991 the same time as the R King video.
An al Qaida doc. recovered in Afghanistan, a letter from Bin Laden to Mullah Omar listed as doc#AFGP-2002-600321 in the CTC at West Point Harmony Database(since disappeared from public viewing), bin Laden stated “the media is 90% of the PREPARATION for the battle”.
The news is being orchestrated for the attacks and the attacks are following the Weather Underground playbook.
Find an incident, a spark to ignite the flame, ratchet it up to a raging inferno.
Orchestrate civil unrest/race riots follow with terrorist attacks.
The only hope Hillary and her minions have to keep from being charged with treason, waging war against the US, mass murder is to try and make it appear as if the repubs are picking up on the dems talking points then collaborating with the terrorist to frame Hillary.
Classic cheap attorney trick.
Banghazi Ping #3.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
The kids love it. They hate to miss Greg. It teaches them to discern who’s BSing and who has an ulterior motive, unknown as it might be.
It lets them know what’s going on in the world.
When Dana goes onto a Hillary will be good, or Eric, the nice, but obviously whipped, finance expert goes on with Hillary was an outstanding Sec State, I just can’t take it.
Bob, I expect it from, and yesterday, when he and Greg had to be separated by Eric over Russia and communism, They asked a lot of questions, so it was a good history lesson.
But just ugh.
Dana has a huge infatuation with the Bush family. So...
