Obama team 'to blame for
Benghazi embassy deaths'

Independent [UK], by David Usborne

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/10/2012 10:44:04 PM

At a hearing on Capitol Hill Republicans yesterday sought to eviscerate the Obama administration over its handling of the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, saying officials failed to heed security warnings and dissembled in their public statements in its aftermath. Opening the politically charged session, Congressman Darrel Issa said warnings from US personnel in Libya about the worsening security situation were ignored. "They repeatedly warned Washington officials about the dangerous situation in

Comments:
The leftist Independent can drop the quotation marks. They themselves state that THEY had evidence that the State Dept. knew of the threat and did nothing. And it's not politically charged either. The disgusting Democrats are politically stonewalling to protect their dishonorable president and his Sec. of State while honorable people have died because of them.

We all make bad calls we wish we could take back. It is essential to learn from those and improve. This series of attacks on the embassy and the reduction in security suggest that the bad call was made at the cabinet level or possibly higher. We need Obama out of office.

Hillary should have resigned by now. She is in way over her head, just like her boss.

No. Islamic scum killed the diplomatic mission in contravention of ancient customs that safeguard peaceful foreign envoys.
Obama not only made this possible; he encouraged it by his willful negligence.
Go away, you scrofulous little man!

Hillary has connived herself into a position where she will be compelled to top her own performance telling the story about dodging bullets on the tarmac.

Those bullets were totally imaginary, this time she will be in a game of dodge ball with the ball throwers forming a circle around her and hurling accusations that are quite real.

William Safire's appraisal of Hillary being a congenital liar is/was 100% accurate.

I lay this entire mess at the feet of The Wun, who kicked off his residency by going to Cairo and giving the Muslim Brotherhood et al. license to have their cute little Arab Spring, followed by our own lovely Occupy Autumn (which he also encouraged). Call it "weak horse" or wuss, he's it.

The border deaths, i.e. agents and Mexican innocents and the embassy victims in Benghazi and the drone victims are on obama's hands. Their blood colors his watch on the White House wall.....

hillary will NEVER resign. Her pervert husband was impeached and still stayed the course. They don't play by the rules -- BUT -- they "expect" everyone else to.

I hope everyone recalls how the Democrats and the Old Media CRUCIFIED the honorable and patriotic Donald Rumsfeld .... demanding that he be fired for allowing forceful questioning of terrorists.

What Hillary and Obama have done here, worsened by their feeble attempts to cover it all up, is a hundred times worse than any Rumsfeld decision. Hillary Clinton, as a matter of fact, was one of the loudest voices calling for Donald's resignation.

Obama is probably terrified he will be left standing alone here.

Well, I can assume not putting extra security into Benghazi wasn't because of the cost, as this administration spends like drunken sailors, and this wouldn't have cost that much, comparatively speaking. So, I wonder what the real reason was.

Exactly #11 - so did Hillary receive any intel briefings prior to September 11, and if so, did she ignore them? Or if she did not receive any briefs, why not? I wonder what role her senior special assistant Huma Abedin played in all this? Were these intel briefs filtered through Huma before reaching Hillary?

Rep Kelly dropped your point right in Kennedy's lap, #14. He recalled the champaign receptions going on in other embassies at the same time security requests were being denied to Ambassador Stevens.

Right now I can't decide who's more to blame, that stupid cow Hillary or her lazy, ignorant boss, Obama. Her celebrated previous experience as "co-president" was her claim to executive ability and insider knowledge. She's got no excuse.
He is a clear muslim sympathizer who puts America's interests below everything up to and including his wife's vacation schedule... and he holding the tiller.

It was brought up in the hearing that the cost of putting in more security was not approved, but they increased the salary to those that were there. As if that should help! Well, it worked in Chicago. They insult us.

There's a flip side to this, you know.

No one at that posting had to go to that posting. One can refuse a posting.

Anyone Obama sent is already so deep in the Crazy Leftist Camp that it's highly likely they only thought they understood the risks, but in reality they probably had a lot of that "rainbow in their eyes" attitude.

Plus, they were free to skeedaddle. If it gets that serious, get on a plane with your staff and beat feet since Hillary and Obama wanted to make you a sacrifice for the good of the State.

This whole episode takes two to tango

This article is from the Independent in the UK. Glad someone is covering it, cause it sure as heck isn't our media that is completely enraged about this. Can you imagine if a Republican was at the helm - The media would be going crazy. This is the second tragedy in this whole story. The media turns their collective head on anything that could harm their hero, but cares nothing about the harm to the country and our citizens who died.

Was a crime knowingly, covertly committed by one or many? Was the cover up protracted
to make it even more obvious that a crime was committed? It is apparent now, the premeditated murder of our ambassadoe at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was an act of terrorism and not caused by spontaneous reaction to a barely seen video.
Members of the administration and Obama apparently fabricated a story about the video being the cause. Let's face it, SOMEone made it up, many followed the spin.
In fact, many days AFTER facts of the horrific event were revealed, Obama REPEATED the misreprentation to the world during his own U.N. speech! The question IS:
how many subsequent riots were a result of this presidential subterfuge? And since the ensuing worldwide riots resulted in multiple deaths, are the contributors of this fabricated scenario guilty of a crime?
(Worse news, is the obvious DemRepub Rule: nobody gets punished.....ever)

I am mad as well that Kennedy and Lamb carried the water for Shrill and Obomination yesterday. If they had a clue at all, they have to know what is going on and owe it to the American people to tell the truth. Their loyalty should be to the people not the pols!

Here's an interesting article from Kevin DuJan at HillBuzz.org. He postulates that the Benghazi attack was an Obama October Surprise gone bad. Obama was supposed to rescue a kidnapped Ambassador through his marvelous negotiating skills. Kevin manages to explain the facts and puzzling Administration and State Department behavior in a much more coherent way than anything else I've seen. You all might find it interesting.

If the voters would just wake up, they would figure out that Obnama is also to blame for destroying this country. How ANYONE can believe he is a good leader is beyond conprehension. Wake up people and realize he is destroying our freedoms, out economy, even our lives. Wake up and vote him out of this wonderful office of Presidency!

Rep Trey Gowdy: ... They stood post under dangerous circumstances even after requests for security were denied. They stood their post. The least we can do is stand this meager post that we've been assigned and demand that this administration speak the truth to the people it's supposed to serve. This was never about a video. It was never spontaneous. This was terror. And I want to know why we were lied to.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
