Benghazi Email: Hillary Clinton Deputy Names Islamic Extremists, Not YouTube, Morning After Attack
Breitbart ^ | 1 May 2014 | Dan Riehl

Posted on 05/02/2014 7:52:41 AM PDT by xzins

Per Sharyl Attkisson dot com, the "email is titled “Libya update from Beth Jones.” Beth Jones served as Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton at the time. The email documents a conversation between Jones and Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 not long after the attacks.

This below contradicts the White House and State Department's story that they believed a video led to what was thought to be a spontaneous attack.

“When [the Libyan Ambassador] said his government suspected that former Qaddafi regime elements carried out the attacks, I told him the group that conducted the attacks—Ansar Al Sharia—is affiliated with Islamic extremists,” Jones reports in the email.

Hillary will continue to say “what difference does it make?”

The real difference is two-fold

1. Obviously, the deaths of the Seals and an Ambassador is provably related to campaign concerns over-riding the security and lives of our people. That is criminal decision making.

2. Just as troubling is the fact that the US government, with Hillary as part of it, led a disinformation campaign against the American people. It is against the law for the military to use the capabilities of the US to deceive the people. I suspect it is also against the law for others to do so.

It is a crime against the security of our people to propagandize them to believe a lie (youtube video) when our national security requires that they clearly understand a threat.

Law? In America? What a joke.
The Law is not applied to the corrupt EXEMPT, is it?

0bama supplied arms to Al Qaeda in Syria.

According to some sources, with the 30+ CIA guys in Benghazi taking Ghaddafi’s arsenal and sending it through Turkey to our sworn enemies and perpetrators of 9/11:

AL QAEDA.

Nobody ever talks about WHY there was such a huge contingent of CIA guys in one place. This is the only reason that makes sense.

The cover-up must be perfect, or the U.S. Government comes apart, including Congresscritters informed of the covert op.

RE: Movie maker

There seems to be some conflicting reports regarding the movie/trailer.

One article says a California-based property developer, Sam Bacile, is said to be responsible for the movie.
http://blog.al.com/live/2012/09/post_241.html
Bacile went into hiding.

Another article says that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was the filemaker. He was the one arrested on charges of violating terms of his probation on a previous bank fraud charge. He spend a year in prison and was released on 4 years probation, per Wikipedia.

Ex-AFRICOM Brig. General: Military Should Have Responded to Benghazi Attack

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On May 1, 2014 In The Point

General Lovell also served as the Deputy Commanding General of Joint Task Force ODYSSEY GUARD with the mission to plan for any potential United States military missions in Libya following the fall of the regime of Moammar Gadhafi. Joint Task Force ODYSSEY GUARD was instrumental in providing support to the Department of State as it reopened the United States Embassy in Tripoli.

Parts of retired Air Force Brigadier General Robert Lovell’s testimony are technical having to do with AFRICOM, but he makes one very important point. The Obama side on the Benghazi side has repeatedly claimed that there wasn’t enough time to do anything. But that’s a retroactive argument.

If you do nothing, then you’re rolling the dice that the enemy might finish off your people before you could have done something and then you have an excuse.
Instead of a military response to Benghazi, Obama absurdly enough sent in the FBI.
Lovell’s testimony is the first from a member of the military who was at Africa Command at the time of the attack. Lovell was deputy director for intelligence at Africa Command.

Lovell did not question the Pentagon claim that it could not have scrambled forces in the region quickly enough to have prevented the deaths of the Americans. Lovell said no one at the time of the attack knew how long it would go, so could not have determined then that there was no use in trying.

“As the attack was ongoing, it was unclear whether it was an attempted kidnapping, rescue, recovery, protracted hostile engagement or any or all of the above,” Lovell said.
It’s not just about the timeline. It’s about the fact that Obama and Hillary refused to even try and that their response was to shift blame and send a scapegoat to prison for offending Muslims.

Cummings broke in with his buffoon act again.
“Why are you testifying that the U.S. military did not try to save lives,” Cummings asked.

Lovell said he was not disputing that information.

“We should have continued to move forward with whatever forces we had to move forward with,” Lovell said.

He described a sense of desperation while attack unfolded when asked by Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, how the military responded during the attack.

“We sent a drone overhead,” Lovell said, almost mumbling. “It was desperation…. There was a lot of waiting for State Department for what it was that they wanted.”
Which means that it really came down to what Hillary wanted.

“We didn’t know how long this would last when we became aware of the distress nor did we completely understand what we had in front of us, be it a kidnapping, rescue, recovery, protracted hostile engagement or any or all of the above,” Lovell said. “But what we did know quite early on was that this was a hostile action. This was no demonstration gone terribly awry.”

But the lie had to be told anyway.

For the 2016 anti-hitlery campaign, I hope there are good copies of her paid ad in Pakistan screeching about the video.

And does anyone remember the “PSA” to the muslim world that Hillary did shortly after the attacks that let the muslims know that we did not make or approve of the video? That is pretty funny now that at the time of making it she knew full well the video had nothing to do with the attacks. Does anyone know what I am talking about because I am surprised that Fox News isn’t playing the crap out of that - really makes Hillary look like the lying clown she is.

I believe it was chemical weapons as well. Part of the reason the administration is so hell bent to cover it up.
