Benghazi conspiracy? Hell yes!
http://www.americanthinker.com/ ^ | May 12, 2014 | Victor Volsky

...Clearly, the Benghazi terrorist attack had to be kept under wraps, no matter what, lest Obama’s campaign be blown out of the water. Thus, a decision was made to do nothing so as not to attract attention to Benghazi – a decision inimical to the national interests, but logical from the political point of view. Hence the White House’s refusal to mount a military rescue operation and its cold-hearted willingness to sacrifice Americans in Benghazi.

As a matter of fact, aside from the four Americans who were killed in Benghazi, there were another three dozen U.S. personnel who were abandoned by the Obama administration. It was only thanks to CIA contractors Tyrone Woods and Glenn Doherty, the ex-Navy SEALs who ignored orders and led to safety the besieged Americans, that those people avoided the fate to which they had been consigned by their commander-in-chief. But we have every right to speak of twoscore actual and would-be victims rather than just four dead heroes.

Finally, the infamous video.

SNIP

To summarize: the White House came to the conclusion that disclosure of the truth about Benghazi would be a monumental PR disaster for Obama and a grave threat to his re-election hopes. Consequently, it resolved to minimize and gloss over the tragedy at any cost. And if a handful of Americans had to be sacrificed on the altar of Obama’s political ambition, tough. What are the lives of a handful of little people compared to the lofty goal of saving the Obama presidency?

So was there a White House conspiracy? You bet there was.

There is no doubt about that. It’s so obvious even hairy screed sees it. It’s a Koch brother conspiracy to make the hildebeast look bad. Like she needs any help. Is she getting a special deal from MensWarehouse on pants suits?

Where are the three dozen? And why have they been silenced? I would think they want to tell their stories in order to properly thank ex-Navy SEALs Woods and Doherty for saving their lives.

*******
Probably those are the ones who signed the non-disclosure with CIA ? Trey Gowdy was asked about getting these people in as witnesses and he indicated he would be able to do that with a select committee.

What if there are Republicans on House & Senate intelligence committees that know for a fact, the CIA was gunrunning out of the Libya consulate & annex but are sworn to top-secrecy?

..thus the focus on the talking points cover-up.

This deception goes all the way to the highest operators in the Obama White House, Jarrett, Axelrod and Moochelle. The big “O” does or says nothing without their OK. On the occasion where he does, he always puts his foot in it. He is the likable, electable ‘suit’ who does what he is told with the promise that he will enjoy the high life as long as he lives.(Their determination). His (their) ambitious plans have not yet been realized. How do I know? The country has not yet been placed under martial law..but they are planning for it.

Once the committee has the Witch’s Cabin Key the entire house of cards will fall. This is why the democRATS are fighting with so much venom, hatred and fear. They know their house of cards is in danger. The Intelligence community within the Military will be granted a reprieve and shown to have been correct during all their warnings plus the exposure of congress and the administration which chose and our enemies over the American People will be shown; thus congress (a majority of congress) and an administration actively gave aid and comfort to enemies of the American People could be shown with hearings. Will be difficult to keep the house of cards standing, at the base of the house of cards, for once one card is removed, at that location (the base), the entire house of cards falls and (imho) that will be one happy day.

Good article.

Getting to the “Foggy Bottom” of Benghazi

http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/62998

As Michael Reagan so astutely and accurately detailed in his column Building on a Kernel of Truth (http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/10/building_on_a_kernel_of_truth.html) in the immediate aftermath of Benghazi, the U.S. State Department, with their own army consisting of intelligence forces selected from the CIA and government subcontractors, created “a Ho Chi Minh Trail of Muslim Brotherhood supply lines that crisscross North Africa and eventually enter Syria from staging areas next-door in Turkey.” The operation involved the U.S., along with other Western nations, doing the heavy lifting for the Saudis. Part of the Saudi agenda is to rid the Middle East of Assad, and their plans intended on using our intelligence agencies, military subcontractors and others to do so. This was being done at the highest levels of our government as well as with some of our allies, in direct violation of U.S. and international law.

snip

An honest and independent investigation would prove that the attack in Benghazi was the direct consequence the actions of a covert army of agents within U.S. intelligence, under the command structure of the U.S. Department of State and the White House, with the imprimatur of elected and appointed officials of both parties.

But what does this mean to the LIV / millenial / LGBT / liberal crowd? ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Until you snatch their electronic distraction devices from their hands, take away their video games, porn and their drugs you will get no reaction from them whatsoever unless you did something drastic like accosting one of them in real life with a flame thrower but even then all their friends would have their cell phones out filming them as they burned down to the ground. We have a culture sickness of epidemic proportions...

In the Obamanation Year of 2009, noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, (also an award-winning Co-Author of the now transparently failed Affordable [sic] Healthcare Tax Law), set the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence with this now famous quote:

“We have to pass the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Bill to find out what is in it, - - - away from the fog of the controversy.”

Now, in the Obamanation year of 2014, “We, the People,” are being accused by the same Noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, of willingly approving funding of a “Political Stunt” [her words], formally known as “The Benghazi Murders Select House Committee,” as appointed by permissive, Doormat Republican House Speaker Boehner.

This is an obvious, transparent contradiction to the incisive legal logic that Pelosi used during her former Democrat zeal to ram through a single party mandatory tax on “We, the People.”

If “We, the People,” choose not to correct Ex-Speaker Pelosi’s latest accusatory, (and, as always undocumented), speech then few will remember what we here today have failed to do in this hour of peril in loyal Patriotic Opposition, (commonly called “PO’d”), to the evil, Oppressive, Marxist Regime of the now failed Community of Obamanation, moving forward.

When a noted Democrat Intellectual of the lofty stature of Democrat Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, establishes such a high Standard of Federal Excellence, as brilliantly, and impeccably displayed in her above quote about the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Law, it becomes incumbent on “We, the People,” to fervently beseech our sorry Doormat Republicans to fairly apply that same Standard of Pelosi Federal Excellence to other matters of Federal involvement.

Besides, the Democrat’s own ‘Fairness Doctrine’ requires that this be so as follows: ‘ - - - be very strictly framed in all PC speeches, (as per the dictates of Obama Mentor, published Communist Saul Alinsky), regardless of ethnicity, Country of birth, race, creed, non-Democrat Party affiliation, disgust with politics, low level of voter information, non-subcriber to the New York Times, non- viewer to MSNBC TV, religion, non-religion, gender, or gender of choice.’

Then let us, the Oppressed “We, the People,” do hereby resolve, forthwith, to always enthusiastically be MOVING FORWARD with the Democrat Mandate of the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence because:
“WE HAVE TO INVESTIGATE THE BENGHAZI MURDERS AND THE 20 MONTH LONG OBAMA-CLINTON-BOEHNER COVERUP OF SAID MURDERS TO FIND OUT WHAT IS IN IT, - - - AWAY FROM THE FOG OF THE PHONY VIDEO.”

BTW, since B. Hussein Obama always dictates that he has “ordered” his crack AG Holder “To get to the bottom of this,” is that not just another Communist Saul Alinsky Method of deflecting any potentially punitive Investigation away from “Where the Buck Stops?”

If Obama is ever found to be the one where the buck actually stops, all he has to do is to promise “That he, ALONE, will make sure that it never happens again.”

FORWARD !

This reminds me of another great bit of Hillary video the GOP can use in a campaign ad. I remember seeing Hillary in the State Department’s TV ad informing people in the Middle East that the US wasn’t to blame for the famous video (which supposedly caused the Benghazi attack), and that we hated the video as much as they did. (Never mind, no one had even heard of it before Hillary’s ad aired.)

“Obama decided to punt”

As I understand it, Obama was apprised of the situation by those who were watching the attack in real time, and Barry decided he needed his rest for a fundraiser the next day.
So, like Adolf Hitler on the morning of June 6, 1944, Barry was getting his beauty sleep and couldn’t be bothered to release the panzers.
Of course his decision to retire (and do nothing but dream of Reggie Love) came after a war room session with the Reptoid, Hitlery, Brennan probably and other policymaker/co-conspirators who decided—as the article states—that the little people had to be sacrificed for the `greater good’.

American patriots sacrificed on the altar of Obama’s and Clinton’s political futures.
It’s enough to blush a division of crows.

Hillary isn’t the only guilty one.

This is why an honest and independent investigation is a longshot. The Prime Directive of the Foreign Policy Community is, "The perception of integrity of American foreign policy must never be questioned." Note that I'm talking about the perception of integrity, not the actual integrity itself. Many a foreign policy scandal has been erased from the record by CIA, which has a dotted-line relationship to the Foreign Policy Community, and CIA's Mockingbird operatives in the Mainstream Media. To prevent foreign policy scandals, the MSM has directed its attention to lesser scandals that are more juicy from a journalistic perspective, easier for the people to understand, and less dangerous to the powers that be.

To get to the bottom of this, the military will have to come forward, even at the risk of its current jobs and future job prospects following retirement, to tell a truth that would embarrass the Foreign Policy Community and the nation itself. It will literally have to make war on the Commander-in-Chief, the Foreign Policy Community and the CIA.

There will be deaths as this scandal deepens.

Mark Steyn: Chris Stevens was one of them, a Team Obama loyalist. But they abandoned him and dishonored him in death because the President's political needs outweighed his life.

Let that one sink in .... think Obama cares for anybody but himself and has America's best interests at heart? Think he cares one wit about the damage being done by Obamacre, IRS, NSA, F & F, VA 'wait list' deaths, America's decline on the foreign stage? Au contraire.

What is chilling is how the Obama administration driven by Obama’s election campaign made no effort help those brave Americans fighting for their lives. The interests of the Obama campaign trumped the interests of the nation and four Americans died. Obama lied and four Americans died.

Hillary and Obama and the Democrat Party set out to make some money off of Libya. I think Putin kicked them in the behind at Benghazi. I don’t think the Democrats anticipated the attack at Benghazi at all. Then, they had to do some negotiating on the fly. Obama surrendered at Benghazi. He told Al Qaeda that there would be no rescue or military operations. The Democrats are trying to keep Americans from knowing that our Commander In Chief surrendered at Benghazi and that the Democrats were making personal profit off of their imperialist foreign policy in Libya.

The short answer to where obama was is, he was meeting with his political advisers and campaign staff.

I stand by my theory...when it became evident that the cleverly designed “plan” to save the election was going south, Jarrett and Axelrod told Barry that “plan b, the video” was now in effect. Go play x-box or watch ESPN. The real truth is probably very difficult to embrace and extremely twisted.

I don’t believe there was a conspiracy. In this case it was simply a case of the democrats didn’t have any idea what to do. The conspiracy came afterward when they wanted to cover that up.
