    A video released over the weekend, which some news outlets claimed had showed Libyan men trying to save U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens as his body is recovered from the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, has turned out to show the opposite. Arutz Sheva posted a report on the video with the translation given by prominent news sources, but raised immediate doubts as to the authenticity of its interpretation, which have now been shown to be well founded. According to an alternative translation provided to Alex Jones' Infowars by a native Arabic speaker, there is no evidence whatsoever that the men in...
  • Video: Obama now ducking questions on security failures at Benghazi consulate

    Via BuzzFeed, simple question from the Univision moderators: Why wasn’t your administration better prepared to secure America’s embassies on September 11th? The response, true to form, is nearly six minutes of meandering about how it’s important to stay engaged in the Middle East, how the Mohammed movie is “offensive” but shouldn’t be a pretext for violence, how he’s decimated Al Qaeda’s leadership, etc etc etc — everything except an answer to the question that was asked. The closest he gets is insisting that they redoubled their security efforts afterward, which is super but not much of a consolation to Chris...
  • Evolution of administration statements on Libya attack

    09/20/2012 12:34:04 PM PDT · by Hunton Peck · 16 replies ^ | September 20, 2012 | unattributed
    The Obama administration's account of what may have happened in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi last week has evolved by the day. At first, officials were reluctant to say whether the strike that killed four Americans including the U.S. ambassador to Libya was premeditated. Top-ranking officials ranging from White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice subsequently gave briefings and went on television to claim they had no evidence the strike was pre-planned. Carney and others then began to open the door to other possibilities, as accounts emerged that there...
  • In Libya, deadly fury took U.S. envoys by surprise

    Though Libya's deputy interior minister described the locating of the safe house as a "critical security breach," the attack may not have been planned for long in advance. The assailants would have had some hours to follow the fleeing Americans and set up an ambush after the consulate attack. "It began to rain down on us," Obeidi said just as the rescue force was preparing to leave. "About six mortars fell directly on the path to the villa," he said. One American fell wounded by him. A mortar struck the building itself, throwing from the roof another American posted there...
  • Libyan President: Attack Premeditated, Al-Qaeda Involved, US Warned Beforehand

    Libya's highest politician says the United States government was warned about a pending attack on its diplomatic staff three days before it took place. Libyan President Mohammed el-Megarif says his government received word of the pending attack and passed that information to US diplomatic officials no later than 48 hours before the attack.
  • Report: Never an Anti-American Protest in Benghazi, Only a Planned Attack (CBS Video Report)

    CBS reports this morning that witnesses are saying "that there was never an anti-American protest outside of the consulate [in Benghazi, Libya]. Instead, they say, it came under planned attack. That is in direct contradiction to the administration's account of the incident."
  • Obama Incompetence in Mid-East Rivals Carter’s in Iran

    09/20/2012 9:13:06 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 9 replies ^ | September 20, 2012 | Bob Barr
    Despite repeated, self-serving claims by Obama officials that the Administration did everything it could to head off and then respond appropriately to the violence against American facilities in Libya and Egypt last week, their blunders in policy, intelligence and security illustrates an incompetence every bit as profound as exhibited by the administration of Jimmy Carter in Iran 33 years ago. It appears nothing has been learned in more than three decades; despite significant gains in technology available to the U.S. government during those intervening years. In 1979, the Carter Administration precipitously abandoned the Shah of Iran, Washington’s long-time and loyal...
  • Limbaugh: Bill O’Reilly Is Ted Baxter

    07/16/2008 5:42:14 PM PDT · by paltz · 252 replies · 812+ views via NY TIMES ^ | 7/2/08 |
    Limbaugh’s been making news today with his new $400,000,000 contract, but this from the New York Times caught my eye more than his big new contract: At dinner the night before, Bill O’Reilly’s name came up, and Limbaugh expressed his opinion of the Fox cable king. He hadn’t been sure at the time that he wanted it on the record. But on second thought, “somebody’s got to say it,” he told me. “The man is Ted Baxter.” Rush didn’t have much nice to say about Sean Hannity either: Limbaugh has a deeply conflicted attitude toward Sean Hannity, his one-time stand...
  • F-Bombs away at WCVB: Ch. 5 bans cussing in newsroom after on-air vulgarity

    The Boston Herald ^ | 10/18/2006 | Jessica Heslam
    WCVB-TV executives have banned swearing in the newsroom after the "f-bomb" made it into one of their Friday newscasts. The station broke in to carry a live press conference on University of Vermont student Michelle Gardner-Quinn, whose body had been found 15 miles from campus. After the press conference, the station replayed an edited portion of it during its 5 p.m. newscast. During that segment, as the Burlington, Vt., police chief spoke, a WCVB producer could be heard shouting the "F" word in the background. The Herald obtained and reviewed a copy of the segment. Sources say news executives fired...
  • Sean Penn's rescue bid sinks

    EFFORTS by Hollywood actor Sean Penn to aid New Orleans victims stranded by Hurricane Katrina foundered badly overnight, when the boat he was piloting to launch a rescue attempt sprang a leak. Penn had planned to rescue children waylaid by Katrina's flood waters, but apparently forgot to plug a hole in the bottom of the vessel, which began taking water within seconds of its launch. The actor, known for his political activism, was seen wearing what appeared to be a white flak jacket and frantically bailing water out of the sinking vessel with a red plastic cup. When the boat's...

    WASHINGTON -- Republican contributors who gathered at Washington's Willard Hotel Tuesday for "an evening with the President" were stunned by the surprise appearance of boxing promoter Don King (accompanied by his usual bodyguard). Nobody had ever before seen King at a Republican event. Attendance Tuesday was limited to Eagles, who must pay $15,000 membership dues. From the Willard, King went to a $15,000-a-ticket Democratic fund-raiser at the Washington mansion of Bill and Hillary Clinton. A footnote: Federal records reflect only $10,000 in contributions by King in the 1996 and 2000 election cycles, with but $1,000 given Bush (in 1999). He...
