  • The Obama Doctrine: American Lives are Expendable (This is Why Bengazi Happened and will again)

    The Obama White House, the Clinton State Department, and Panetta's Department of Defense have guiding principles in Afghanistan that, if applied to Benghazi, explain the administration's decision to deny air support to the Americans fighting for their lives on 9/11/12. The denial of air support to our troops in battle is normal operating procedure for this commander in chief. He doesn't have to give special orders to do it. It is the Obama Doctrine on the War on Terror: do not kill Muslim civilians. Let American soldiers die instead. That is how Obama thinks he will win the hearts and...

    Media discover Benghazi, notice Obama stonewalling By Jennifer Rubin The Washington Post Posted at 09:30 AM ET, 11/02/2012 Nov 02, 2012 01:30 PM EDT Well, it finally happened. The mainstream media have figured out that Benghazi is a big story and potentially a serious national security scandal. After weeks of silence, a plethora of mainstream media news stories have popped. As he has from the get-go, Eli Lake makes news, writing: “On the night of the 9/11 anniversary assault at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, the Americans defending the compound and a nearby CIA annex were severely outmanned. Nonetheless,...

    Isn't it convenient that some CIA "informants" have come forth, five days before the election, for nearly identical stories by The WaPo and the NYT's regarding the Benghazi coverup? Mighty convenient: So what’s going on here? The national-security staff in the Obama White House has a standard operating procedure. If a military action, such as killing bin Laden, succeeds, then immediately leak selected details to shape the narrative to the political advantage of Mr. Obama. If the action is botched, as in Benghazi, then say nothing and tell the quiescent press that there is no story worth pursuing. If questions...

    A community of Navy SEALS released an ad today blasting Barack Obama. “There’s a pervasive feeling across our community that he’s going to use whatever to get elected and he doesn’t really care about the men on the front lines.” Well, he certainly didn’t care about Benghazi SEALs. That’s clear. The SEALs say 95% of their peers will not vote for Barack Obama. Via Veterans for a Strong America: In this shocking video, United States Navy SEALs reveal that the SEAL community is not voting for President Obama because of his conduct as Commander in Chief.

A review by the Australian government found a false sense of security exists among personnel due to an excessive reliance on privacy settings.

    The Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were murdered September 11 in Benghazi. That we know. But too little else about what took place before, during and after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission is clear. The White House says Republicans are "politicizing" a tragedy. Politicians politicize, yes, but part of their job is to hold other politicians accountable. The Administration has made that difficult by offering evasive, inconsistent and conflicting accounts about one of the most serious American overseas defeats in recent years. Unresolved questions about Benghazi loom over this election because the White House has failed...

    Scandal: A month before the terrorist attack, the State Department was warned Benghazi couldn't protect itself and was surrounded by Islamist militia and al-Qaida camps. It was 3 a.m. and the administration pressed "snooze." When the U.S. mission in Benghazi called an Aug. 15 emergency meeting, it wasn't to discuss an obscure Internet video. It was to discuss the lack of security for a consulate surrounded by at least 10 terrorist camps. An Aug. 16 cable to the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and obtained by Fox News reported that the State Department's senior security officer "expressed concerns...

    We know Ambassador Chris Stevens and the CIA were somehow, some way running or heavily involved in an pipeline of money, weapons and information being routed from Libya to Syria through the Muslim Brotherhood and some Saudis. We know Turkey is the nexus, and Libya is the doorway to the Caliphate to get arms in for distribution to Syria, Yemen, Jordan, Egypt and eventually Saudi Arabia. Now, what I suggest here -- for us Freepers to do -- is to begin MAPPING this network of evil, this network of jihadist brigades fighting for the Caliphate. According to Asher Berman, --...

    The nature of the Benghazi disaster is now clear. Ambassador Stevens was engaged in smuggling sizable quantities of Libyan arms from the destroyed Gaddafi regime to the Syrian rebels, to help overthrow the Assad regime in Syria. Smuggling arms to the so-called "Free Syrian Army" is itself a huge gamble, but Obama has been a gambler with human lives over the last four years, as shown by the tens of thousands of Arabs who have died in the so-called Arab Spring -- which has brought nothing but disaster to the Arab world. For the last four years, the Obama policy...

We still haven't fully evaluated the June attack on a British envoy in Libya. So, I hope everyone can appreciate why we were taken by surprise on September 11th.” Clinton also cited “the stupefying ambiguity of Ambassador Stephens...

    When Mitt Romney strode across the the platform Friday evening and took his place behind a podium in front of the largest crowd he's drawn this year, he sounded familiar stump speech themes of bipartisanship and economic recovery. But the parade of high-profile surrogates who opened for the candidate fixated on another, more explosive issue — one with a particular power to both animate conservatives, and frighten Romney's senior staff. For about 60 minutes before Romney took the stage, Topic A was Libya. Ever since terrorists stormed the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in September — killing four Americans, including the...

This prima facie evidence was available to our government on September 12th, Benghazi time and September 11th, U.S. EDT. If there is evidence of pre-planning or coordination in either the video itself, or in the spoken word of the terrorists, it would be obvious that our government has either been lying to us all along...

    Suspicion in last week's attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans has focused on members of a hardcore Islamist militia known for its sympathies to al-Qaida, its fierce animosity to the U.S. and its intimidation of other Muslims who don't conform to its harsh ideology. That doesn't mean Libyan authorities will move against Ansar al-Shariah soon. The group is among the most powerful of the many, heavily armed militias that the government relies on to keep security in Benghazi. In fact, it guards one of Benghazi's main hospitals. Libya's militias are a legacy of last...

    Recent claims that an attempt to rescue the American Ambassador in Libya was vetoed by someone high up in the administration raises a disturbing question. Did someone higher up want the Ambassador and/or others at the consulate to die? Investigators need to examine this possibility. One potential problem might be that the action resulted from the same type of "failure to communicate" that caused the death of Canterbury Archbishop Thomas Becket in 1170. King Henry II was locked in a long running dispute with Beckett and at some point said something that caused his knights to mistakenly believe the king...

    Did ideological soft spot for Sharia keep U.S government from protecting Benghazi consulate? Obama knew. Say again, Obama knew. So. The question. If what happened in Benghazi wasn't incompetence -- was it ideology? Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs? And is Hillary Clinton's insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were "not evidence" yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology? Specifically, did an ideological soft spot for Sharia...

    "Ghazi" means "great warrior" in Arabic. The name "bin ghazi" means "the tribe of ghazi." Turkish Sultans used "ghazi" as an honorific, as in Caliph Sultan Ghazi Mehmed II Khan Caesar. Benghazi, the town in Libya, is also a notorious hangout for AQIM, al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (Mediterranean Africa). Those are the thoughts that come up in Arab minds when they hear Benghazi. It's the perfect propaganda place for al-Qaeda. Radical Islam is at war with us, as they keep telling us out loud -- and we just handed them a historic victory, a repeat of 9/11/01 to the very...

    Wednesday, 05 September 2012 11:50 Obama Prepares Huge Bailout for Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt Written by  Alex Newman font size Print The Obama administration is close to finalizing a massive $1-billion bailout for the increasingly totalitarian Muslim Brotherhood regime ruling over Egypt, according to U.S. government officials cited in news reports. The move is already drawing fierce criticism from opponents arguing that bailing out the new Islamist ruler, who is already working to bolster Egyptian ties with the communist Chinese dictatorship while becoming increasingly despotic at home, would be a mistake on multiple levels.   In addition to forgiving the...

    "we killed a hundred of them in Brega, they attack again the following day, we kill another hundred, they attack again, we kill another hundred...noone does this except al qaeda because they believe they are martyrs and once they are killed they go to heaven.

    A father and a mother used the word “murder.” A brother said he won’t second-guess decisions made in the heat of battle. The families of three Americans killed in the Sept. 11 U.S. consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya, are offering widely different reactions to recent reports that U.S. personnel issued several requests for help that were turned down. Patricia Smith, the mother of slain State Department employee Sean Patrick Smith, is now blaming President Barack Obama for her son’s death. “I believe that Obama murdered my son,” she said Thursday from the living room of her Clairemont home. “I firmly...

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 31, 2012 – Defense Department leaders remain fully confident in the commander of U.S. Africa Command, Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, maintain complete faith in the job Army Gen. Carter F. Ham is doing. “His decision to retire has been an entirely personal decision to move on... (is due to inappropriate early response rather his following reluctance to stand down) is absolutely false, absolutely, categorically false... General Ham's departure is part of routine succession... He will continue to lead Africa Command until he retires to General Rodriguez."

    SNIP On Friday, Pentagon spokesman George Little provided new details of U.S. military movements made the night of the attack in case they were needed. Little said that within a few hours of the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered U.S. military forces to move to Sicily in preparation for an uncertain situation in Libya. “This department took swift action,” said Little. “It did respond, the secretary ordered forces to move. “We were prepared for a range of contingencies in the course of this very tragic incident,” said Little. “We were ready for the need to...

    LETTER TO THE EDITOR For several days now, I have been looking for an IR(Independent Record) story of Washington’s disgraceful cover-up of the killing of Americans in Benghazi and have found nothing. I cannot believe the lack of information coming to the public on behalf of liberal journalism. If the president were a Republican, the papers would be crucifying him, on a daily basis; yet we hear nothing from Lee Newspapers. Washington is withholding the truth about their failure to respond to calls for help in Libya until after the elections. This lack of information supplied to everyone is a...
