Press Releases

Gowdy Named Chair of the Select Committee on Benghazi

Washington, May 5

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) released this statement regarding the announcement that Speaker John Boehner has chosen him to lead the select committee to investigate the Benghazi attacks:

“I applaud Speaker Boehner for his decision to establish a select committee and am honored to serve as Chairman. Twenty months after the Benghazi attacks, there remain unresolved questions about why the security was inadequate, our response during the siege itself, and our government's interaction with the public after the attack. All of those lines of inquiry are legitimate and should be apolitical. Facts are neither red nor blue.

“While people are free to draw different conclusions from the facts, there should be no debate over whether the American public is entitled to have all of the facts. In a courtroom, juries are free to believe one witness over a hundred witnesses. But you cannot make that or any other credibility determination if you do not have access to all relevant witnesses, documents and other tangible evidence.

“Four of our fellow citizens were murdered, and a facility emblematic and representative of our country was attacked and burned on the anniversary of 9-11. Our fellow citizens are full well capable of processing the truth about the attacks and aftermath, and most assuredly entitled to hear it.”

I’m finding stories of American weapons all over the mideast from before the Benghazi attack in 2011. I always said our involvement in the Libyan mess would be a gun running operation.

Hillary Clinton is THE original source of the 'video did it' excuse for Benghazi, Cairo and all the rest of the embassy riots around the world. Hillary did it!

US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its ‘we stand by our condemnation’ tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!

Here is Hillary pushing it again on Sept. 13th.

Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56)

Here is a 'senior administration official' trying to distance 0bamugabe from Hillary's f-up and at the same time admitting by inference that she was the source of the 'video did it' meme.

Senior administration official: The Cairo embassy’s statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement “disgraceful”

posted at 10:34 pm on September 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO…

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.

And here 0bamugabe and Hillary work together to try to prop up her 'video did it' nonsense and spread it even further.

Nope, she never said anything about a 'video.'

Montagraph put up a new video on May 1st. It is basically a refresher of his original findings of the connection between Stanley Inc., a State Dept. subcontractor, to the Innocence of Muslims video. He also shows when and by whom the name was changed.

BUSTED Once And For All

Here is a video by another Vlogger who demonstrates how Innocence of Muslims was traced to Stanley Inc. through the meta-data.

I think Obama is the original source. According to your own link...

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2991021/posts

OBAMA CALLED HER at 10PM on 9/11/12. Minutes later she ‘released a statement linking the attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a reference to an anti-Muslim video on YouTube’.

OBAMA GAVE HER THAT, it became the talking at that moment.

What about the Cairo embassy tweets in the early morning hours of Sept. 11th? They occurred at least 15 hours before the attack in Benghazi.

Yes, the strawman of the Youtube video. Here is more about the origination of that strawman.

Obscure Film Mocking Muslim Prophet Sparks Anti-U.S. Protests in Egypt and Libya

A a 14-minute trailer for the English-language film, which was posted on YouTube in July, attracted little attention until last week, when a version dubbed into Arabic was posted on the same YouTube channel and then copied and viewed tens of thousands of times more. (The Arabic version was removed from the filmmaker’s YouTube channel after this post was originally published.)

Note: Montagraph proved that the final Arabic version, renamed Innocence of Muslims, was not on the filmmaker's (Nakoula's) channel and never was.

Here is more that establishes the pre-positioning of "Innocence of Muslims" in advance of Sept. 11th.

A Timeline Of The Attacks In Libya And Egypt -- And The Responses

July 2

Sept. 5

Sept. 9

Sept. 11

We know now that that is not all entirely accurate, for instance there is no Sam Bacile that is a pseudonym for Nakoula Nakoula, but the timeline itself is correct. It has also been shown that Nakoula is not the one who dubbed it into Arabic and did not give it the name Innocence of Muslims.

There were four versions of Nakoula's movie.

Only the final one was forwarded, by persons unknown, to Sheikh Khalid Abdullah the cleric in Cairo who aired it on TV. Nakoula, the maker of the original film, was not the one who uploaded the final version, Innocence of Muslims, to the internet.

You can hear some interesting things about the timeline of all these iterations of "the movie" in the Youtube video linked below. Start at 9:30 and watch to 16:00 for the meat of that.

False Flag, Currently Underway ?

Even the protests and attack in Cairo weren't about that stupid 'video.'

Interviews on the streets of Cairo. 'Video' had nothing to do with protests and attack.

Yes, it would certainly appear so. It also appears that Hillary originated the whole idea well before Sept. 11th to cover for the protests they knew were coming to embassies around the world. IMO they decided to just keep running with that to coverup that Al Qaeda attack in Benghazi.

This post has links that establish a connection from the Innocence of Muslims video, to a shadowy trio of Youtube accounts that hosted it (not Nakoula/Bacile's channel) to Stanley Inc. which is a contractor for the State Dept.

Stanley, Inc.

The company’s largest customer is the U.S. Army. It also holds contracts with the U.S. Marine Corps, U.S. Navy, Department of State, and Department of Homeland Security. It operates facilities for the production of United States passports[1][2] and for mailroom work and data entry for applications for U.S. visa and citizenship.

Department of State Investigation

In March 2008, the U.S. Department of State, which is responsible for issuing U.S. passports, stated that two employees of a Stanley Associates subcontractor had been fired for improperly accessing the passport application file of (then) presidential candidate Barack Obama.[5] The company published a press release[6] on March 21, 2008. In each case, Stanley took immediate disciplinary action and employees were terminated the day the unauthorized search occurred. Stanley also stated its general policy and practice to cooperate fully with any potential Government investigation.

Additional information on the breach of passport information has yet to be disclosed to the public.[7][8]

Any connection to news reports WRT the State Department announcement it has "no idea" what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors?

A special State Dept “management alert” warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at State has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years....under Hillary's watch.

Or is that how Hillary always$ get$ tho$e wonderful poll number$----why $he's always at the top of the pre$idential pack?

I hopped on the information superhighway and paid a visit to a uber-lefty site that rhymes with Lark just to take a look at their thoughts on Benghazi/Committee/Gowdy. Pretty much as expected, this is a Republican manufactured conspiracy, put together to help them get elected and headed up by a guy who's most likely an alien.

I'm not only of the opinion we need some type of litmus test to qualify for the privilege of voting, there needs to be a maturity level requirement, as well.
