Skip to comments.Was the attack on Benghazi an "October Surprise" gone bad?

Folks, is it possible that the gruesome murder of our Ambassador in Benghazi was acutally the beginnings of an October surprize gone horribly awry?
I believe that somehow, because of all the unanswered questions there...because of the unbelievably chaotic and rushed manner in which the Obama administration tried to cover it up...and continued to cover it up well past all rational thinking would indicate that they were doing ss...and because of just common sense questions, questions like:
Tragically, there very well could have been people in our own government who knew about all of this.
Could it be that an "October Surprize" is what was really "supposed" to happen in Benghazi after the kidnapping. We would have seen an outraged Obama, stoked up and rightously indignant over this, on National TV claiming it would not be tolerated and that we would secure the release of Stevens. He would maybe even have "suspended his campaign to deal with it...for all Americans to see.
Then October would have been full of "that" story, and you can bet it would invariably lead to a Stevens release just before the election.
But because a couple of US Navy SEALS happened to be there contracted out on another unrelated State Department matter, and because a couple of other personnel (possibly CIA personnel) put up one hell of a fight against overwhelming odds...holding them off for 6 hours...that the terrorist plan (and potentially the entire "surprize") went bad.
The attackers got mad when many of their own were killed and wounded and they ended up killing Stevens and the SEALS and the other fellow that got seperated from the main group (who escaped...and whom alll should be carefully questioned regarding what they saw and heard) when they caught them.
Thus what was supposed to be a great moment for Obama in an arranged tough negotiation to save Ambassador Stevens (who himself would have had no clue about any of this and would never have gone along with it), turned into a gruesome murder instead.
Precisely because this was so horrible for America. Precisely because these questions remain unanswered. Presicely because 12 operations centers saw this in real time and no help was attempted. Presicely because of the umitigated lies, deceptions, and now cover-up of this administration. This entire affair should actually be absolutely front page news in the whole country until it is resolved, campaigns or not.
We have American blood on the ground and we potentially have those amongst us who at the very least are covering it up for political purposes because it does not fit their narrative...or who, at the worst may have helped to arrange it in an effort to create a new political narrative just before the election.

Obamas False Narratives

FYI...as horrible as it may seam, this is something to think about.
This is quite possible. I first heard this theory a week ago.
Once again the Obama administration giving the American people the not so subtle, good ole one finger salute.
I pray so Jeff. This is a National disgrace !!
I agree. And don’t forget the pre-planned video to blame.
And don’t forget the unexpected presence of two SEALS that fought back. They weren’t supposed to be there. They “messed up” a likely pre-planned hostage situation that 0dumbo would solve.
If so none of the attackers, if identified, will be taken alive. Some know too much.
Or maybe the SEALS killed those who were supposed to get the Ambassador alive.
Do not forget, Fast and Furious was an attempt at gun control likely by executive order, and it went horribly wrong.
The October Surprise angle is very plausible with these manipulators controlling our government, complete with their lap-dog media.
Most of those were probably the producers updating and editing and fixing it as best they could...and then their family and friends.
With the Chicago Mob, anything is possible.
I think that is why NBC and MSNBC ran the story about the terrorist responsible for the attack on the Embassy thumbing his nose at America. I think he is being set up (willingly) to replace the Embassador in the trade for the Blind Sheik.
Now whether this story is truthful is another issue. I for one want to hear from the security guys who State says were there. Without starting a witchunt I think Issa should subpoena them and the vids and radio comms. My own feeling is that if five guys are tasked with protecting Stevens and Stevens winds up dead then some or all of those five should be lying beside him, like Randy Shuggart and Gary Gordon
Yes. The hidden story is that of this abomination of a regime arming al Quaeda. Fast and Furious, Middle Eastern edition.
That is beyond treasonous.
What you suggest is certainly possible, especially considering the chicago thugs with which Obama surrounds himself.
However, IMHO “never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity”.
Obama and his choom gang were (and are) single-mindedly focused on Obama’ re-election. Their entire world view and all of their behavior in the run-up to this tragedy were informed by that single, simple goal.
Embassy security was neglected out of pure sloppy management and focus on other things (the convention, the campaign).
Other than the fact that the islamofascists are ALWAYS predisposed to killing us, if there was anything that “set them off”, it wasn’t that retarded movie — it was parading bin Laden’s head on a pike around the ‘rat convention. But again, Obama and his genius advisors were focused on the election. The possibility of fallout from their spiking the bin Laden ball enver came up in their planning sessions.
Once the tragedy occurred, an explanation HAD to be found that let Obama and his administration off the hook. That’s really all that’s necessary to completely explain the ham-fisted coverup.
IMHO, those things, and not an October surprise conspiracy, are the “occam’s razor” explanation for what has occurred.
Just my 2c, and FRegards
The first comments out of Steven’s Libyan friends was ‘he was killed by his own puppets’.
The facts on the table are so bad for Obama you really don’t need to stretch the narrative.
Exaclty. The MSM is following the lead of the Administration and would be wholly unaware of the depths that this thing goes, if such a scenario were true. But they would cover for (as they have obviously been doing) Obama to the hilt because of their unbelievable bias.
