BENGHAZI DEBACLE: CONSULATE BOMBED TWICE THIS YEAR, REQUESTED EXTRA SECURITY (Check the CNN video!)
Human Events ^ | 10/2/2012 | John Hayward

Posted on 10/10/2012 12:33:58 AM PDT by neverdem

There’s no way that even the most biased media can continue covering for the utter incompetence of the Obama Administration. They got people killed in Libya, and they’ve been lying to the American people for weeks. Critical mass on this story has been achieved; cracks are appearing in the media embargo; and it’s now utterly laughable to thaw out the media action line from September 12, which held that Mitt Romney made some sort of horrible “gaffe” by criticizing the Administration’s conduct.

Eli Lake at the Daily Beast reports that there were actually two bombing attempts on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi over the past five months. The Administration is not advancing this information – it’s coming from whistleblower testimony before the House Oversight Committee. Lake pieces it together at the Daily Beast:

For example, following a May 22 early-morning attack on a facility that housed the International Committee on the Red Cross, a Facebook page claimed responsibility, and said the attack was a warning and a “message for the Americans disturbing the skies over Derna.” That reference was likely to American surveillance drones over a city that provided fighters to al Qaeda in Iraq in the last decade.

In June a Facebook page associated with militants linked to the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi posted a threat to Stevens based on the route he took for his morning jog. The Facebook page also posted a picture of Stevens. The letter to Clinton notes that “after stopping these morning runs for about a week, the Ambassador resumed them.”

A senior State Department official contacted for this story said the ambassador was “not reckless” with his own security or that of his staff. But this official also acknowledged that the ambassador was “an old-school diplomat” and strongly desired to have...

While I am sorry that Stevens was murdered, anyone who deludes themselves that muslims can be ‘dealt with’ or trusted on any level is a fool.

“The letter also discloses for the first time a bombing at the U.S. consulate that occurred on April 6, 2012. It says that on that day, two former security guards for the consulate in Benghazi threw homemade improvised explosives over the consulate fence. That incident resulted in no casualties.”

Where is Eli Lake getting his information? How does he know that two former security guards were the perps who threw a homemade bomb at the US mission? It was nowhere on the net prior to his revelation. If he got the info from intel sources...how did they know? Lake worked as a reporter for the state department at one time...my gut tells me he’s making it all too easy and something else was afoot.

Just in time for the ‘foreign policy’ presidential debates.

Obama is going to get sooooo screwed in this one if the Romney team is on the ball.

If true, this Benghazi fiasco is gross incompetence.

Crimes by ATF and DEA informants not tracked by feds

Black Middle Class Economically Vulnerable

Counting on Coal Country

Why I’m becoming a Democrat ("If the Republicans and independents in my district added their votes to the existing Democratic moderates, the results could turn the corner on the neighborhood’s legacy of bad politics.")

It's a rational argument for conservatives living in states with closed primaries, moonbats have a huge, local registration advantage and moving isn't an option. If you want to vote in GOP or other primaries, then you have to observe the registration deadlines.

Some noteworthy articles about politics, foreign or military affairs, IMHO, FReepmail me if you want on or off my list.

I wonder ? what the percentage is of those Obama supporters/voters from 2008 are now the wide eyed seeing the truth, but don't want to admit that they are wrong and made a mistake in 2008 ?
I bet a lot of them are wide eyed now seeing the truth, but, don't want to admit that they made a huge mistake and won't admit they were wrong... and are mad at themselves in private.

"If true," to even say that is funny.

Incompetence? Naw, Obama knows what he is doing.

Arab Spring: It's not about democracy, freedom.... It's about overthrowning governments that are behaving themselves and replacing them with radical Muslim terrorists.

Egypt went well, firmly in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood. Obama wants to give the terrorists $Billion for submarines. SUBMARINES? If you ask why then you really are rather slow. Submarines, for Egypt to attack Israel.

Libya: government overthrown but now terrorists need to get power.

Iraq: Obama removed US Troops not for campaign promise but to allow terrorist to overthrow that gov't and get power. Terrorist attacks are on the rapid increase.

Syria: Obama supports rebels. Rebels are terrorist led.

End game is simply Syria, Libya, Egypt and Iraq joining Iran in destroying Israel.

The Muslims realize Americans are fools. They will never believe that TREASON is the REASON.

The whole deal looks like a tag team effort by Obamugabi and his own personal Acolyte of the antichrist, the Hildabeast!

Is it possible we may get a chance to impeach yet another Clinton?

Oh, joy!

In response to Obamugabi voters in 2008, the same applies now to the Hildabeast voters in 2008 ~ as early as the primaries.

Choosing between evils gives you evil.

I’m sure there is a percentage but I have my doubts that it is big. Now, independents, mushy middle, moderate whatevers? Maybe they’re getting a clue. But they’re undecideds for a reason. They are habitually uninformed.

"If true," to even say that is funny.

I was just referring to the Benghazi consulate being bombed twice. Doing nothing was stupid. Either reinforce with reliable security or get out.

Incompetence? Naw, Obama knows what he is doing.

You can't just make the assertion. You need the arguments and evidence of evil intent when you're not preaching to the choir, or you will be accused of McCarthyism by the left Forget about persuading the hard left. Our target audiences are those who can be persuaded.

Arab Spring: It's not about democracy, freedom....

IIRC, there was no word in Arabic for democracy, and the current chaos can be viewed as the logical result of GWB's intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan. We didn't really comprehend that we were dealing with religious extremism, and its acceptance in that part of the world. Various Sunnis and Shiites picked up the ball, and they are running with it.

Egypt went well, firmly in the hands of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It's another example of being careful what you wish for. The Salafists want to make it another Saudi Arabia.

Libya: government overthrown but now terrorists need to get power.

The largest number of foreign fighters that we fought in Iraq came from Libya, another tribal society. I expect nothing good.

Iraq: Obama removed US Troops...

That was according to the already agreed upon schedule from GWB's administration and Maliki. People will argue about whether a status of forces agreement was ever possible in order to have some residual forces there, or that Obama just didn't try hard enough to get the agreement.

Syria: Obama supports rebels. Rebels are terrorist led.

Obama supports some of the rebels, but not with weapons so far, at least not publicly. Some of the rebels are supported by Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists. The Sunnis are the majority in Syria. Their Muslim Brotherhood took over Hama in 1982. Assad's father crushed them. Estimates of the dead were in the tens of thousands. Kurds, Shia, Alawites and the remaing Christians have reasons to fear the Sunni majority. Our NATO ally Turkey was firing artillery into Syria for most of the last week in retaliation for one Syrian mortar attack that killed five civilians. I'm not sure if they stopped yet.

End game is simply Syria, Libya, Egypt and Iraq joining Iran in destroying Israel.

They are all too messed up to do anything resembling a coordinated attack. Which is not to say Israel can relax. Just normal surveillance. They'll know about any massing of troops.

P.S. Iran now has hyperinflation.

It's time to play the Sunni against the Shia, like we played the Soviets against the Chicoms in the Cold War.

Remember when Rush advocated folks crossing party lines to vote in Democrat primaries for, I think it was, the Hildabeast?

I thought that was so wrong. At the time Obama appeared to be slightly less evil and unreliable than Clinton.

Now it seems they are in a tie, so Rush was certainly wrong ~ but basically about voting for what seems to be the lesser of two evils.

That sort of thing ALWAYS goes wrong ~ that's because you can never outguess Evil.

I don’t think Rush intended to help either of them get elected but I have no doubt that Hillbilly is as evil as 0bungles. They’re both so bad it’s just nitpicking details to try and compare them.

Good stuff scattered in that time span....some ( I consider) explosive stuff comes toward the end.

The Blond rep from Florida ,...ex LEO ...grills Ms Lamb.

The Rep from Utah that Lt Col Calls when his call To Sen McCain goes unanswered.

My Rep Dana Rohrbacher gets some good licks in...

And ...And Woods says that the attack should have been no surprise because the militants had driven out off the Western influences like the Red Cross....they were attacked and withdrew their services....till the last FLAG standing was the US Flag .....

Thanks E.. All you said in post #34 I verify as just watching the whole 4 hours on CSPAN. Things are very fresh in my mind.
The Demo side was rather endemic in their statements and questions. They just tried to piss away some time. They know full well all things lead to the WH on this. People lied as to the reasons our four US citizens where killed.

I’m only about halfway through listening to it but Kennedy is clearly lying his arse off. I think Issa knows it and he’s going to pin it down after the hearing.
