    If you want to understand why conservatives have lost faith in the so-called mainstream media, you need to ponder the question: Where is the Benghazi feeding frenzy? Unlike some of my colleagues on the right, I don't think there's a conspiracy at work. Rather, I think journalists tend to act on their instincts (some even brag about this; you could look it up). And, collectively, the mainstream media's instincts run liberal, making groupthink inevitable. In 2000, a Democratic operative orchestrated an "October surprise" attack on George W. Bush, revealing that 24 years earlier, he'd been arrested for drunk driving. The...

    What is it like to spend your last moments on earth fighting for your life? To have devoted your life, and your life's work, to a great nation -- to serve it well and honorably -- and serve for it with courage and distinction, to all come down to a last, frantic few seconds, spent defending you and your fellow Americans and call for the cavalry to come help, and no cavalry comes--and you die. This is what the two former Navy SEALs, under the employment of CIA, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, faced in their final moments in Benghazi...
  • Obama Fires Top Admiral For Advocating Libyan Rescue? (USA's Third World president)

    According to this report, yesterday (27 October) Obama ordered the immediate removal of Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette from his command of the powerful Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3) currently located in the Middle East. CSG-3 is one of five US Navy carrier strike groups currently assigned to the US Pacific Fleet. US Navy carrier strike groups are employed in a variety of roles, which involve gaining and maintaining sea control and projecting power ashore, as well as projecting naval airpower ashore.

    Did Obama Withhold Cross-Border Authority? Please help me. I am trying as hard as I can to get out the word about cross-border authority (CBA). I just can’t believe reporters don’t know enough to ask the right questions! It’s infuriating. Libya, as far as standing down the rescue, is 100% Obama’s show, and nobody else’s. Only he can grant CBA, not Biden, not Panetta, not Dempsey, not Hillary, and certainly not Ham in Germany. The entire episode is explained perfectly inside the context of not granting CBA. The CIA QRF in Tripoli? No problem, send them on the local Tripoli...

    Via the Daily Caller, Newt Gingrich thinks that the Benghazi scandal might blow wide open over the next two days, thanks to e-mails that he claims two networks now possess from the office of the National Security Advisor, Tom Donilon. According to a "reliable Senator" who tipped him to the information, Gingrich says that the e-mails came in response to the request to aid the consulate in Benghazi after the attack began, and asserted that the attack wasn't a terrorist action and therefore didn't need a response:CLICK ABOVE LINK FOR THE VIDEO “There is a rumor — I want to...

And there's been no response from the White House to questions asked by senators or THE WEEKLY STANDARD or David Ignatius in the Washington Post. We have, to be sure, heard from some government officials. But the information they've provided raises still more questions.

In an e-mail exchange over President Obama’s record of skipping his daily intelligence meetings, National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor wrote me the following: I’d also note that this focus on just the PDB and not the countless other NSC meetings the President has each week really misses the point.

    Was the Administration hiding something at the Benghazi embassy?

Why? Was there something they were hiding at that embassy? SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were told not to go help Ambassador Stevens, and they are certainly heroes because they went anyway, saved the lives of thirty embassy workers and lost their lives in the process. General Ham was going to offer help...

    During times of crisis Americans rightfully expect their president to be many things, including an Empathizer-in-Chief. Given his presidency has been a complete failure when it comes to the economy, foreign policy, transparency, and job creation, one could only hope Obama would have tried a little harder to show us he can feel our pain. But, some things can't be faked. Empathy is one of them. Ask Charles Woods, the father of the slain Navy Seal hero Tyrone Woods, who was killed during the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. Sure, Obama appeared to be empathetic when standing...

Republicans have criticized the administration for its description of the attack. They have suggested that the administration insisted it was a protest over a film that insulted the prophet Muhammad because acknowledging that it was a terrorist attack would have affected the presidential campaign. The administration has said it provided information as it became available and has strongly objected to the...

    If you have serious questions about what happened in Benghazi on Sept. 11, you are not alone. Former admiral, congressman and Democrat Joe Sestak has questions, too. “There are questions the administration needs to answer,” Sestak said Monday morning as Hurricane Sandy rolled into Delco. “Put politics aside, something did go wrong.” That, of course, is the understatement of the year. Four Americans are dead, including U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. They were killed in a terrorist attack that lasted seven hours and included several desperate calls for help. But no help came. Why? Months before the fatal attack,...

    Between e-mail revelations and whistle-blower testimony, the Band-Aid is very painfully being pulled off the Obama administration's Benghazi disaster. And as in any management failure, we have two ways to look at the issue -- long-term and short. In the short-term view, we learn something about the quality of our actions -- i.e., was the right or most proper decision or sequence of decisions made based on the facts known at the time? But the benefit of the long-term view is that it may reveal failings in the way we organize ourselves for these occasions and, by extension, the likelihood...

    The first statements from the Obama administration about what happened in Benghazi seemed plausible. There were, after all, protests throughout the Muslim world on the anniversary of 9/11 — some incited by Islamists using an obscure video to arouse anti-American fervor in the mobs, and some, no doubt, just pelting U.S. embassies on general principles. When the administration explained that one of those protests had spun out of control and led to the murder of our ambassador and three other Americans in Libya, there seemed no reason to doubt it.For a day. But within hours, the administration account deflated...

    It's simple logic. In Libya there is only one possible threat to an AC130 gunship: surface to air missiles. Thus this is the only way Panetta wasn't lying when he said that it was lack of information about the threat environment that kept him from sending defenders into "harm's way" in Benghazi. He must have been afraid that the jihadists were lying in wait with surface to air missiles, and he had good reason to suspect such a ploy. A primary task of the Libyan mission was to round up the war materiel of the deposed and decomposing Moammar Ghadaffi...

    Proof Positive - In My Opinion True Source Found For "Innocence of Muslims." (Obama)This is a Youtube video produced by user Montagraph who speculated that "Innocence of Muslims" was a false flag op. So did I. He has done a lot of work tracing numerous websites connected to the original uploading of the now famous video. His narrative starts out very slow but give it a chance. He does explain it all in detail and has sourced it all with URLs below his vid. Montagraph declines to say that his evidence is definitive so you be the judge. The internet...

    As has been noted on AT before, "...this blog by a retired State Department Foreign Service Officer seems a daily must read." His latest post reveals, firstly, that is now becoming clear that the Benghazi Scandal begins with the so-called "consulate" itself and its purpose, and, secondly, that there will be no "fall guys" at State, CIA, and the Pentagon: Our facility in Benghazi facility was a half-baked operation. It was not a consulate. It was a "facility" with an ambiguous purpose....(with) a stunning lack of even basic security despite the rapidly deteriorating situation in Libya....Security levels for our facilities...

    Beyond Impeachment: Obama Treasonous over Benghazi Posted By Roger L Simon On October 29, 2012 @ 12:01 am Is it treason when you put your own reelection above the good of your country and the lives of its citizens? If so, Barack Obama committed treason in leaving the four Americans to die in Benghazi. Our Constitution defines it this way: “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.” Aid and comfort to the enemy — what is that? When you ascribe an action to...
  • Is "Benghazi" Obama's Foreign Policy "Wait and See," "Run and Hide," or still "Follow from Behind?"

    After almost four years of Obama's Hoping to "Fundamentally Change" America's Foreign Policy, it is time to review whether or not the "Benghazi Kid" Obama has achieved his very popular with Liberal voters 2008 goal! Are we better off now with our fellow Nations than we were 4 years ago? From Teddy Roosevelt's "Big Stick," to "Benghazi" Obama's "Follow from Behind," to "Pansy" Panetta's "Wait and See," there has been a blur of change in how best to wup up on who is naughty and who is nice. It is time to politicize, score political points, employ checks and balances,...

    <p>We have had ambassadors murdered abroad before, but we have never seen anything quite like the tragic fate of Chris Stevens. Amid all the controversy over Libya, we have lost sight of the human — and often horrific — story of Benghazi: a U.S. ambassador attacked, cut off and killed alone, after being abused by frenzied terrorists, and a second member of the embassy staff murdered, as two American private citizens rushed to the rescue, heroically warding off Islamist hit teams, until they were overwhelmed and also killed.</p>
  • Libya Warnings Were Plentiful, but Unspecific (Obama ignored the request for additional security)

    In the months leading up to the Sept. 11 attacks on the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi, the Obama administration received intelligence reports that Islamic extremist groups were operating training camps in the mountains near the Libyan city and that some of the fighters were “Al Qaeda-leaning,” according to American and European officials. The warning about the camps was part of a stream of diplomatic and intelligence reports that indicated that the security situation throughout the country, and particularly in eastern Libya, had deteriorated sharply since the United States reopened its embassy in Tripoli after the fall of Col. Muammar...

    The official story surrounding the events of September 11, 2012 in Bengzahi, Libya which left four Americans dead, has now officially fallen apart. After numerous flips and flops by the Obama administration, which originally attempted to paint the incident as a Muslim outcry over an anti-Islamic video, whistle blowers throughout the U.S. government, including within the White House, the State Department, national intelligence agencies and the U.S.military have made available stunning details that suggest not only did operational commanders have live visual and audio communications from drones overhead and intelligence assets on the ground, but that some commanders within the...
