BENGHAZI WILL NEVER GO AWAY
Breitbart ^ | 2 May 2014 | by BREITBART NEWS

Posted on 05/02/2014 5:43:37 PM PDT by kingattax

This article was originally posted in National Journal

Someone tweets about Benghazi every 12 seconds. Not every 12 days or every 12 minutes, but every 12 seconds. Over the past month, that's added up to more than 200,000 tweets, according to the social-media tracking firm Topsy.

And while mentions of the attack on the American compound in Libya soared in the past few days thanks to new revelations about the government's handling of the incident, Benghazi still scores about 5,000 tweets per day during the long periods between fresh news developments.

Notably, that's about the same number of tweets as Hillary Clinton gets on most days. In fact, over the past 30 days, Benghazi edged out Clinton on Twitter, earning 219,325 mentions to Clinton's 219,163 (as of the end of the workday Thursday.)

At the very least, Benghazi revealed intolerable character flaws in Clinton and Obama for all to see. The willfully blind are chuckling along with Nancy Pelosi. We’ll see about the rest of the American people.

a lot of people would probably say that obozo and hellary’s character flaws were confirmed by benghazi, but you make an excellent point.

Remember that hands upraised Alias scene from Platoon, where they’re flying off as he’s on his knees and gets machine-gunned?

THAT is what our Prez did to these guys.

Over the course of EIGHT HOURS.

I just ran into a very strange coincidence regarding two banners I made....one with Hillary Clinton Alluding to Benghazi.....and the other Identical but for the text involved.

The “Image” with the Benghazi “allusion” has been replaced in google image search by a nearly indetical version I made later......Bearing NO Allusion to Banghzi

I said it on day one, that is, 11 Sept 2012.

They were our diplomats and they were in country - murdered there.

It will never go away. Unresolved as it is, it hangs there. Our enemies and most saliently, the Mideasterners, the MB and the Libyans know it.

Putin knows it. Our allies know it.

THe dems can put their hands over their ears, shut their eyes, send surfer dudes out to catch flak (no one else is going to do that job anymore)and blame republicans and fox all they want.

But it will never go away.

It was an international incident and no one has been expected by the sophomores in power to be held responsible for it.

The 10th graders can take over the school through the weakness of the upper grades, administration and the parents by mob power of the student body but when some 15 year old student gets stoned, drives out and kills a local in a wreck, the school is responsible and someone eventually has to go to jail for it or it will hang over them forever.

Why haven’t the killers and their accomplices been brought to justice?
Answer: they’re still on 0bama’s payroll.
Al Qaeda in Syria was supplied with arms by 0bama; remember the US was Al Queda’s air force. Benghazi was a pre-planned attack by 0bama backed Al Queda operatives to get Stevens out of the way. I think it’s likely that Stevens was likely to talk about the trans-shipment of arms from Libya to Syria va Turkey to Al Queda units in Syria, just before the election.

The media will not cover it. The National news gave zip coverage. The Sunday morning shows will put a lib hack out there and play Baghdad Bob.
After this Sunday it will be over as far as the National news outlets are concerned and when it is covered the LIVs will be told this was 2yrs ago, it’s over and old news.

......to Jay Carney and Vietor whining about “Dude, this was 2 years ago”. The Pubs will ALWAYS have the unassailable answer that will always resonate with the majority of the American people which is “Dude, there are 4 Americans DEAD!”

Had there been no American dead, there would be no scandal. This is the mis-calculation that the top folks in State and the Whitehouse made.

Anybody hear the caller on Hannity tonite that seemed to say that Hillary cancelled an appearance in Russia BEFORE the attack actually happened? In other words it seems Hillary/State Dept knew in advance that an attack was about to happen in Benghazi. Guy seemed to say his wife was at the meeting site in Russia and overheard organizers there discussing how to handle the cancellation. Did I not hear this correctly?

I think it would go away if about a dozen people were sentenced to about ten years each in Leavenworth. Starting with Obama, Hillary, Jarrett, Jay Carney, Susan Rice, Rhodes, Vietor...............and who am I missing?

All these foreign policy distractions are getting getting very complex!!

Even Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi is growing weary of reading parts of some of the Left Stream Media articles about, as she says: “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi!”

Clearly, Nancy PP is ready to be MOVING FORWARD!

Nobel “White Guilt” Peace Prize winner B. Hussein Obama as Commander in Chief of the US Military will probably, IMHO of course, soon issue an Executive Order to ban the awful term “War,” and replace it with the more user-friendly term “workplace violence.”

However, even this future, astute, PC Executive Order does not effectively deal with the root cause of these foreign policy distraction, namely the Videos!

The Cover Up White House still has nightly showings of the “Awful Benghazi Video” to refresh the memory of Staffers who have forgotten what difference Benghazi made.

Now comes ANOTHER Video, this one produced on the run, of course, by the same decimated leadership that was the key to getting Obama re-elected in 2012.

” - - - The video released by the Brigades in June showed nighttime explosions around the consulate, interlaced with footage of Osama bin Laden and al-Zawahiri, along with images from the 9/11 attacks. At the time the Brigades claimed it had launched the attack in response to the first reports of al-Libi’s death in a drone strike in the tribal areas of Pakistan. - - - “

One might even call this “The Tale of two Videos.”

What difference does it make?

The simple answer is as follows:

“Osama bin Laden is dead, and B. Hussein Obama has been reelected to continue to “Fundamentally transform the United States of America.”
___________________

” - - - The email is entitled “Libya update from Beth Jones. ” Jones was then-Assistant Secretary of State to Hillary Clinton. According to the email, Jones spoke to Libya’s Ambassador at 9:45am on Sept. 12, 2012 following the attacks.

“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. - - - “

Oh, me! Oh, my!! Whatever will the Covered Up White House do now?!

Will the highly decorated, ( it was THE Nobel “White Guilt” Peace Prize), AWOL Commander in Chief of all US Military Forces, B. Hussein Obama, rise to the occasion of this leak of an inconvenient email?

Will AWOL Commander in Chief B. Hussein use his phone and/or pen to ridicule or just deny that Benhghazi was nothing more than workplace violence?

Whatever will Mrs. Bill Clinton do now?

Hilly-Benghazi was Secretary of Statements when Bethy J. sent Hilly the FYI email!

Oh, me! Oh, my!!

Maybe hubby “Zipper-Boy” Clinton can help Hilly “slick” all this away?

Being a devoted Public Servant such as Obama and Hilly must be soooooo stressful at times!

To their credit, both B. Hussein and Mrs. Bill Clinton slept well that night while their Federal employees were being brutally injured and slaughtered at the multiple Benghazi Massacre workplace violence facilities.

Should B. Hussein and Mrs. Bill Clinton file for back payment increases in their Hazardous Stress Duty pay?

My guess is that B. Hussein could pull a few strings, and have “a bunch of folks” at the IRS cut these well-deserved “refund” checks.

Oops! I forgot! All B. Hussein has to do is issue an Executive Order to get the checks for Hazardous Stress duty pay, even though he was AWOL as Commander in Chief during the period of maximum stress.

No worries though as Speaker Boehner will continue to block any Special Investigator or Committee proposals from reaching the floor of the US House of Representatives.

All will be safe again in Obamanation!

MOVE ON!
FORWARD!

We have to investigate it to find out what’s in it, Nan.

The ONLY scenario that makes ANY sense is that Amb. Stevens was to have been “kidnapped” and then exchanged for the Blind Sheik.

That’s why there was no defense in the first place and that is why the heros who did fight were told to stand down and not get involved.

And of course it explains why there was no rescue attempt, AND why State and CIC called it a night.

I think it’s likely that Stevens was likely to talk about the trans-shipment of arms from Libya to Syria va Turkey to Al Queda units in Syria, just before the election.

Those communiques from Stevens to Hillary and the State Department are somewhere. Let's hope there's at least one good Patriot who will be the whistleblower.

Think you are right about getting this resolved. Only thing that might be missing from that assessment is the length of the sentence & the possible others involved(which you mentioned).

I’m kinda pissed off at Mullen, Panetta and that other officer on that phony ARB board. You know, the one that didn’t bother to even talk to Hillary.

Maybe they should be cell mates too.
