Busted: State Department Spokeswoman Victoria Nuland Deliberately Lied to Reporters (9-17-12 Video)
TheGatewayPundit.com ^ | May 10, 2013 | Jim Hoft

Posted on 05/11/2013 5:34:02 AM PDT by TexasCajun

Today ABC News confirmed that State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland raised specific objections to an original CIA draft on the Benghazi massacre. Nuland pushed her superiors to completely delete numerous references of extremists linked to al-Qa’ida in Benghazi and eastern Libya. She also persuaded more senior officials to delete information on at least five other attacks against foreign interests in Benghazi by unidentified assailants prior to 9-11. After all, an election was coming up.

Obama officials agreed with Nuland and decided to lie to the American people and claim that the offensive YouTube video was the reason for the attack.

But during her press conference on September 17, 2012, Victoria Nuland told reporters that what Ambassador Risce said on the Sunday talk shows was “very clear, very precise, about what our initial assessment of what happened.”

Did you miss the connection ~ her hubby is a guy at Brookings Institute ~ that’s the source of most of the Leftwingtard standbys for Democrat regimes. They call the shots. She makes sure they are obeyed. George Soros probably gets his orders from Brookings.

Issa’s committee already has all the authority needed to conduct a proper investigation ~ Gloria is right about that. Waiting until a special committee is formed will simply delay this forever.

Obama could be schizophrenic ~ remember back in the day where folks who held conversations with themselves were looked at funny ~ now they just hold up a blackberry or other cellphone and away they go.

Some of these guys can probably coverup the problem indefinitely with modern technology.

What difference does it make? It’s not as if anything will be done to her. If anything, she’ll get a taxpayer funded pay increase.

"Obama officials agreed with Nuland and decided to lie to the American people and claim that the offensive YouTube video was the reason for the attack."

How did the video get noticed by anybody in the first place?

They found it very useful at just the right time for themselves. Coincidence? I've heard that there are no coincidences in politics.

And, the maker of the video picked up in the dead of night is still in jail - for a parole violation?

Who knew it was on YouTube - an amateurish obscure video?

Who knew it would be useful?

Was the film maker paid for making video for use in events like Benghazi? As long as he was in jail, and later, he would help the admin. with a little cash thrown his way.

Maybe he was on the inside?

And, yes, I am wearing my tinfoil beanie - just check out my tagline!

"Why bother? Leftists believe that lying to further their cause is 'OK." Sort of reminds me of a certain religion which I will not name for Politically Correct reasons."

Yes.

Hillary's "what does it matter" speech is one example, I think.

Move on, because the cause needs to be protected and seen in the light of coming to pass. World wide Caliphate?

Generally, leftists will lie even if the truth is to their advantage. It is just the way they are wired.

Hillary was part of the prosecution and persecution of Nixon.

Maybe she is in full force with what was done to Nixon must not be done to her.

Seeing how it was done to Nixon can help her avoid a little whitewater.

Whenever you see the name "Victoria Nuland" in a Benghazi story, mentally substitute the name "Hillary Clinton" because Nuland does nothing without Hillary's explicit instruction.

We know how Hillary and Bill deal with serious scandal. It is called Arkancide. Will Ms. Nuland become the next Vince Foster? It would not surprise me.

Watergate was a penny-ante burglary of a local political office by a couple James Bond wannabees, and the resultant cover up. This was a planned military attack on an American embassy ending in deaths, a tale of incompetence and misdirection, and the resultant cover up! The phone rang at 3 am and NOBODY answered.

You're right on this djf, but isn't it odd the Washington Post doesn't see this for what it is? They were there for Watergate - they should be able to recognize lies and cover-ups.

If this had happened under Bush, the Washington Post would 'know'... and the New York Times would know. True colors are showing...

"Who meets with him in the residence, how often, and why?"

Reportedly, Jarrett meets with him often in the residence...I think I read that in The Amateur.

Read the book (and no, I'm not the author's mother helping her boy sell more books!) - very interesting take on the Obama presidency.

The "how often and why"?

Don't know, but I bet its not on the up and up.

Jarrett really directs him.

He will go to her for any advice, especially if he is in a jam. I bet she very much advises him without him having to go to her first.

A Kenyan and an Iranian (I believe Iranian-but from some place 'over there').

De facto president and vice president, neither of whom have the best interests of America at heart. You know, the fundamentally change America "folks".

Who would have thought?

Great questions! One more question. Who added the video protest to the talking points? It was a non event, so it was totally fabricated. Who added that fabrication to the talking points?

Only the media could equate the moral aspect of an action to what is legal. To them, if it’s legal it’s ok - ethics/morality be damned. What about the erosion of integrity, the erosion of trust to the office of POTUS? How does make our allies & enemies feel?

He’s an embarrassment to the face of this nation, even if not criminal...he should still resign. Of course it’d take character and integrity to do that, so it won’t happen.

Remember, somebody had to give the stand down order, either it was him or he was asleep at the wheel (famous “3am call”).

I don’t agree.

Benghazi was arranged. 0bastard and Hitlery knew about it in advance, and wanted all those men dead. It didn’t work out that way, due to two heros who gave their lives to save others.

And 0bastard didn’t/doesn’t want the world to see him as a savior from jihad at all, he a** kises to the Mozlem world - remember his speech at the UN shortly after Benghazi? “The furure of the world does not belong to those who insulst Islam”.

No no no. He is on the sid of radical and jihadi Mozlems and is making that clear and cleare every day. He’s given up trying to hide it at all.

They weren’t lacking the sense to ramp up security.

They didn’t WANT to ramp up security because they wanted exactly what happened and must have helped it happen. Why else hire a “security” company for the Benghazi place that hired AQ affiliated “security guards”?

this isn’t stupidity, this is assinations.

Very kind of you to say, lj. I'm not sure anyone knows everything about the "video." When you start to follow the trail it quickly disappears down a black ops rabbit hole. There are a lot of interesting things to look at but, IMO, one of the most interesting is the following...

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.

Well, let’s say you know about as much as is publcally available and have it stored handy.

IMHO from reading a lot about it (and I’d like your take on it), the feds told Nakoula to make film it (if indeed he really adid) along with that other dude whose name I can’t remember - the one who’s the cousin of Shoebat and who’s name begins with “S” - and then someone else dubbed it, showed it once in LA. Then it got sent to some imam or whatever they’re called in Egypt who put in on youtube.

The Nakoula guy must be useful to the feds and they have dirt on him so he had to do their bidding. He’s a nasty little man in his own right, making illicit money and helping to fund the PLA or something.

Hitlery et al had to be involved with this because there is no other way they would have even known about it, nor would they have tortted it out INSTANTLY as the “cause” of the supposed protests. It was also designed, imho, to further the “the future does not be belong to those who slander Islam” crap to repress free speech.

How I loathe this evil people.

OK, I'll cop to that. lol

My impression is that Nakoula made his video on his own (with partner) but it seems quite likely that he was led into it by some Fed handler. There were four versions and it's not clear that he had anything to do with altering the last one or two. He didn't upload the final one to the net. It's doubtful the cleric in Cairo found it on his own either. Someone forwarded it to him. Hmmm hmmm hmmm, who would do that?

Montagraph found shell companies within shell companies associated with movements on the web of the final version that had ties with a company that had security contracts with the DoD. Hmmm hmmm hmmm, isn't that interesting?

Nakoula's probation violation (or whatever it was) was well known to the Feds. They had let him slide before on bigger charges so why drop the hammer on him months after he made the "video?" His partner had a much longer history of felonies, well known to the Feds and all unprosecuted, so why hasn't he ever been picked up?

Two final facts make the whole thing very curious. One, Hillary is the first one known to bring public attention to the "video" with tweets from the Cairo embassy early on the morning of Sept. 11th. Two, in their repeated apologies and condemnations of the "video" Hillary and 0bama both made it a point to say "the U.S. government (or 'we' in one instance) had nothing to do with this "video."" A very strange thing to say because no one would have ever made that accusation. At least not without Montagraph's very obscure research and those odd repeated denials. Sounds an awful lot like fear of exposure was driving that.

I don't know about that. His partner was found to have some connections to some palestinians but, to the best of my memory, Nakoula was making money for Nakoula.

When you have a Democrat acting as president, and he has the appointees the party operatives have belched up for him to put into office, then Brookings pulls all the strings ~ been that way for over half a century with that crowd.

Some people imagine Soros is the mastermind but Soros is just a rich old fool who let's himself imagine he's inluencing the ruling class when they let him get near younger women ~

Due to the 'keywords' that particular video was accessible as PORNO ~ guess you missed that little blip ~ wasn't long, but one 'flash' is enough.

The guys who put it together really didn't tell any stories that aren't already well known in the Koran and the Hadiths ~ just that moslems know, in general, it would be improper to depict those stories.

That leads me to the belief that it was designed to be directed to moslems who watch porn on the internet.

That'd be Barry hissef'

I thought only Hilary or Barry could give the Stand Down order...maybe Panetta? I’m not clear on this other than only a few could. I do think that is going to be the nut of the case.

A question I’ve had and can’t find an answer to: Who came up with the VIDEO excuse? I remember something about protests in Egypt....but at that point the vid had 200 hits....Also interesting is that “just a guy in the neighborhood” and his disgusting pig of a wife had been working in Egypt earlier in the year. All very odd...

Too bad the Washington Post can't look into this one... then again they probably wouldn't catch the 'just a guy in the neighborhood' comment. Dems don't feed Washington Post reporters stuff that matters.
