Hillary Clinton should be worried as Benghazi coverup unravels
NY Post ^ | May 3, 2014 | By Kenneth R. Timmerman

Posted on 05/04/2014 3:51:24 PM PDT by kingattax

Make it go away!

That was the message of the Obama administration and their friends in the media for the past two years, and now we know why: Benghazi is the scandal they always denied it was.

Thanks to a lawsuit by watchdog group Judicial Watch, the administration last week released correspondence about the terrorist attack in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012 that left US ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others dead.

There were lots of them, and he didn’t have the spine because of one issue, and you know the one I mean.

Attention,K Mart shoppers....if this derails the former Twelfth Lady's campaign there's a woman...a woman of *color* (so she claims)...who's also running for President.Her name is Princess Liawatha and she's from Massachusetts,just like Romney.But in assessing her character,her philosopy and her "politics" one quickly realizes that she makes Romney look like a mixture of Churchill,Reagan and Palin by comparison.

If the former Twelfth Lady does falter I'll bet the clothes on my back that Liawatha will be the Rat nominee.

Careful. There are a lot of people around here who are proud they didn't vote for Romney and he lost.

It doesn’t matter since the MSM won’t report it. Have to read it in the foreign press.

Trust me,I've been around here long enough to understand that.Sometimes I like to phrase truthful statements in a way that sort of pokes a stick in the beehive...if ya catch my drift.When the folks you mention call me a Commie...a pervert...a collaborator...and worse,it reminds me that I must be doing right. ;-)

To me, Romney was too smarmy (behaving in a way that seems polite, kind, or pleasing but is not genuine or believable)

Then there are those who, like me, are ashamed they voted for Romney and he still lost.

Never again.

The cover up is absolutely disgraceful. The events that led up to it are worse. America deserves better. The victims and their families deserve justice. May truth and righteousness prevail in our midst by the hand of the Creator who answers the prayers of those who cry out for truth.

My perception of him was that he was very believable. I know a few Mormons from Massachusetts who knew him and they spoke very highly of him. They thought he was very smart and of good character.

It was ALWAYS about, “the broader failure of Middle East POLICY”, just as Ben Rhodes feared and his memo revealed.
Rhodes exposed the administration’s greatest fear, their own incompetence, aka, collapsing America’s security, in favor of aiding and abetting the Muslim Brotherhood.

The video was a diversionary lie.

Boehner is too late, timing his minuscule interest in Benghazi only so far as it proves useful to derail democrat front runner, Hillary Clinton. Boehner actually hasn’t given a damn about the families of the poor victims, or the failure of policy that brought it about, beyond now campaign fodder. Looks very tacky.

No,no,no! It's that so many Gay Staters are joyfully reconnecting with their "Native American" roots.You know,the Goldsteins,the Murphys,the Sanchezes,the Cabots and the Yamamotos (among many others).

I still think that our government was running guns and that was what it was about. I believe the WH would finally settle for just “ a broader failure of Middle East policy “ I hope the truth comes out.

Exactly. She has NOTHING to worry about with this. If there was any major shoe to drop that would be reported, it would have happened quite some time ago.

Character is one thing. How he comes across is another. All I saw of him during the debates was this weird smile whenever he looked over at 0bams. Then too, during that one debate where the moderator came to 0bama’s defense and Romney never challenged her. Like McCain - didn’t want any Republican to attack 0bama.

Benghazi, Lies and Videotape

Posted By Nonie Darwish On May 2, 2014 @ 12:40 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Shocking White House emails released to the public Tuesday by government watchdog group Judicial Watch shed new light on the Obama administration’s brazen dishonesty with the public about the deadly Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Statements from top Obama adviser Ben Rhodes confirm what critics have long alleged: that the Obama administration’s to priority in the wake of the attack was not to seek justice for the fallen or confront the threat to our nation, but to lie to the public about the nature of the attack in order to improve President Obama’s image in an election year.

It is the tragedy of our times that that the US government advocated the video excuse as a justification for the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi — or even the attack on the US embassy in Cairo on 9/11/12. It should be common knowledge to Western governments by now that Islamic leadership habitually justifies Islamic terrorism as a reaction to some kind of injustice or offense perpetrated against Muslims. This happens all the time in the commission of terrorist attacks or after they have been perpetrated. But instead of exposing the Islamic lie as usual, America facilitated the terrorists’ excuses. This is not a bad deal for jihadists who are only too happy to see nations victimized by terror defend jihad on behalf of Muslims.

As a matter of fact, Muslims over many centuries have trained Coptic Christians and other Middle East oppressed minorities to blame themselves for Islamic jihad and to ignore the obvious Islamic jihad violence.

Since jihad against other nations is a violation of international law, Muslims have discovered that they have no choice but to lie about their motivation and religious obligation to engage in jihad. It is not the author of this article who is saying this about Muslim culture, but the Islamic law books themselves; they clearly state that Muslims are obliged to lie if it is for the benefit of Islam.

Lying to justify jihad comes to people of the Middle East naturally and without hesitation. Even I was guilty of protecting Islamic jihad at any cost when I used to be a young journalist in the Middle East years ago. Lying to protect Islam has thus developed into a virtue that comes naturally to Muslims after centuries of forced practice of the Sharia obligation — and most Muslims no longer realize the connection to Sharia nor realize that what they are saying is lying.

Muslims shamelessly justified 9/11 with incredible fabricated stories about oppression of Muslims, America’s foreign policy, the occupation, etc. But when such excuses were discredited, the Muslim leadership never gave up and, until today, continues the blame game. The versions range from how Arabs could not have accomplished such a sophisticated terror attack by airplanes (their favorite excuse) to how 9/11 was a Jewish conspiracy or that the American government itself is behind it, etc.

No one in the Bush administration was so reckless as to buy any of the Arab excuses. Even NYC mayor at the time, Rudy Guiliani, would not accept a $10 million donation for disaster relief from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after the prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the September 11 attacks. America cannot afford to collaborate with Arab excuses over terrorism under any circumstances. If America accepts Islamic excuses for terror it is not just an invitation to more terror, but it is descending to the level of banana republics, which fool their own people into believing lies....

Obama is training the American mind to ignore their instincts, what they see, hear and believe about Islam.

The rest of the scandal

Romney couldn’t attack 0bama at 0bama’s weakest point, 0bamacare, because Romney implemented it himself.

We couldn’t have picked a worse leftist loser from the GOPe.

See, I agree with you on that very real suspicion. An earlier Select Committee could have broken this wide open if only they had struck when the iron was hot, but Boehner wanted to stall the story, until closer to the election cycle.

Now his stalling makes good Republicans look calculating and obsessed, rather than sincere, and if Democrats boycott serving on the Committe all together.... well, talk about a failure.

They will twittle with the memo endlessly, implicate Hillary, and never get at the utter failure of Middle East Policy, over all.

Hillary is guilty, and will wish she had resigned over it, which would have made her look principled, for a 2016 run.

We’ll pro’lly get POCOHANIS now. Lol.

So since obummer won’t want any blame and will try as this unfolds (if it does) to put the concrete donut on hitlery, who will 0bummer want to win in 2016 instead of her? That is to keep his regime alive - or, is it as Rush says - a 495 beltway shadow presidency where the piss bucket press will carry his water everywhere and interfere with the next president?

There were two issues:

One, Obamacare. Romney couldn't touch that one.

Two was Benghazi. And Romney wouldn't touch the one issue left to him.

What an utter botch...

Benghazi will roll off of Hillary like water off a duck’s back. The Clintons get away with everything and I mean everything. The list is endless. Between the short-term memory voters, low info voters and voters who just don’t care what happens beyond our borders, plus the media’s protection of Hillary, I predict this won’t affect her all too much. I want to be wrong.

You're right about the "die on purpose" part.

It’s really not that complicated.

For the election, Obama needed to show that he could be tough on Islam.

He planned to have the Ambassador kidnapped and then he would get tough on the terrorists and they would give the Ambassador back. Obama a hero, election in the bag.

He stripped away all the security to make it easy. Problem was that some Navy Seals showed up and started kicking some Muslim butt. Terrorists figured they were set up and the real plan was to wipe them out. They thought that Obama was trying to be the hero by defending the Ambassador.

Things spin out of control, Ambassador is abused and killed Muslin style. Obama and Hillary have to go into spin and lie mode.

It seems to me that the facts of what happened seem to fit well into this scenario.

The subjugation of America to Islamists is this administration’s policy, and Benghazi provides all the proof we need.

The administration proffers a video and its producer as the cultprit, instead of the actual killers. Isn’t this a bigger problem than anything else?

It is accepted as a given that Islamists will act as evil children, and by putting the focus on the video we excuse these murders of our people. Our policy is now “they’re going to kill us if we insult them, so we must stop insulting them”.

Proof? The killers are still at large, not even being pursued.
