The carefully coordinated and heavily armed September 11th strike upon the American Consulate in Libya contradicted President Obama’s repeated narrative that, thanks to his tough policies and actions, al-Qaeda has been defeated. And although misrepresented by U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice as a “spontaneous” outbreak” of violence provoked by a “hateful” movie denigrating Muslim prophet Muhammad, he and other high members of his administration knew full well and early on that this was patently untrue. Congressional testimony reveals that the White House had been informed on day one that al-Qaeda terrorists were responsible for the murders of U.S. Ambassador
Comments: Yo Barry, how's that debate prep going, eh?
Mittens needs to hammer him with this on every question/answer/discussion or whatever it is they are going to be doing. Iron fists in velvet mittens. Get him flustered then his petulance will start showing and it will be ugly.
Obama just flat refuses to call Islamic terrorism terrorism. I guess if he doesn't call it want it is it doesn't exist. He, has by words and action, gone to great lengths to almost cover for them and protect the radicals. Sure wish someone would ask him why.
I am so sick of Republicans covering for Hillary Clinton, leap frogging over her and her direct responsibility for every under armed and under prepared embassy that suffered attacks.
So eager to get to Obama, who is but indirectly responsible for every government function and failure, Republicans waste facts against Hillary, by pointing instead to Susan Rice, over at the UN, when Hillary was days out in front of Rice dragging this fiction around.
Obama says only what he's told to say, but Hillary runs her ship of State, knows very well the truth was running in real time on live video downstairs at the state dept, and chose to replace the truth with a lie.
Obama has lied steadily and systematically about the murder of our Ambassador in Benghazi for 4 weeks. Now the real story is coming out and it is not pretty. How does Obama deal with that in 'debate prep'?
I would like to know who first came up with the "video did it". The embassy in cairo put out a statement about the "video" 9 hours before there was a protest there. That's where an investigation needs to start.
So, does Hillary slip a little "inside baseball" knowledge to Team Romney to sink the President? Because you know she will not take the fall for this. How will the White Queen checkmate the Black King?
Poster #9 is asking a question I'd also like an answer to. Just whose bright idea was it to blame the attacks on some video that no one had ever seen. How did anyone in the administration even know about this movie?
No need to hold hillary's feet to the fire. She is just a weak, pathetic, lying woman that will never even get near the presidency. It is the supposed head of the hydra that the republicans are attempting to take off.....and being a hydra, that will not be very effective. Either obama is the true potus and MUST have seen the video and report of the attack and slaughter very shortly after it happened if not during the attack, OR someone else has the true power and THAT person was privy to the info. Seeing a bored potus next to the coffins, the idiotic fairy tale he told and then followed by the attitude of the dems on the congressional panel, followed by the nitwit biden in debate, it is evident that NONE of the dem party holds our people or country in high regard. It is only something from them to feed off of.
This is the most damaging evidence to date! But, Obama is still not worried. He will just continue telling lies, accusing the State Department of misdeeds. He has been assured that his vacant-minded followers will believe 'his' version of events. .... In addition, he already knows that the town hall debate's moderator, Miss Candy, will stand in for the teleprompter. Just as ABC'S little Georgy Porgy does, Candy will doubtless 'correct' any slip of Obama's tongue and help him to avoid other embarrassing moments.
BUT if a tree falls in the forrest and there is nobody there to hear it........? Watched, again, Morning Joe this a.m. and Libya was nowhere in sight until the 2nd hour, when a slight reference was made. Ditto the vaunted NYTimes and, apparently, the NETS, including those wonderful "newsmen:" Brian Williams and Tom Brocaw.
Undoubtedly, Woodward will have another book out about all of this. Arise all ye investigative journalist, beat him to the punch in real time. Who's idea was the video blame game and who set the wheels in motion to lie to the public"?
Agree with Laura Ingraham on FOX News yesetrday - why aren't reporters camped out on Hillary's laen or Susan Rice's front yard as they were for weeks when the LIbby Scooter/Valerie Plame fiasco was going on? And no one died in the Plame affair.
Or how about the mother of Sean Smith who was killed in Benghazi telling how Leon Panetta held her face in his hands and said they would get to the truth. Why the heck is DoD holding her face - where's Hillary as SoS?
Romney should remind Obama during the debate that no ambassador died under George W Bush's watch - how many under yours?
When Obama and Biden say they didn't know about requests for extra security they may be telling the truth. All they've been doing is campaigning. Obama couldn't care less anyway. Hillary is just as bad cavorting around the world with Huma.
Since Candy Crowley gets to approve the debate questions from the "undecided" voters in advance, it may not even come up unless Romney forces the issue.
Im not a talk show host, but how hard would it be to have asked axelgrease one simple question. "Why did Obama say it was a protest because of a video".. we know that is the reason susan Rice said it.. It was already the lie out of our president's own mouth, and repeated by our esteemed Sec of State. They make the questions too complicated and allow the slime to squirm out of it. I am so sick of these people, I could scream. To hear Stephanie cutter accuse Romney of making this a campaign issue is sick. They are the ones that treat everything as it relates to getting re-elected. That is abunbantly clear by the actions of our dear leader directly after the attack. Going to campaign is his priority. Again I repeat.. he never wanted the job.. he just wants to run for it all the time, which shows a constant need for adoration and approval.
Obama has been just a little bit too obsessed with Dhimmitude & Taquiya. "Shhh-it was work place violence. Shhh-it was a video slandering Islam. Shhh-it was an isolated incident".
Most presidents would have made an effort to rescue those people in Benghazi or at least fight back to some degree. But no, the story goes Obama thinks aircraft, including jets, could not fly 450 miles from Italy in less than four hours! ha!
He should have sent in several helicopters-two or three Cobra gunships(or choppers with door mounted guns) to orbit and lay down suppressive/protective fire, while one or two Blackhawks landed and retrieved embassy staff. This president doesn't believe in fighting back-much like Jimmy Carter. Will the democrats ever learn, in regards to who they submit for the pressydentcy? Nope.
If read properly, the WH record of the evening reveals that Obie went to bed after the attacks began,apparently as the second wave was beginning...so he knew that nightwhat was up... Dems and lefties are very adept at sacrificing someone for the cause....in every sense of the words..... I do believe that Hillary and The Slick One from Arkansas have handed Obie his own "October Surprise".
I don't mean to be a party pooper, but how many people read Forbes Magazine??? My point is, as great as a story this is,IMO it will not make its way into the MSM or all of the alphabet new sources on TV. I am hoping that it will come up in this second debate and Mitt is all set to light the fuse again on the "Benghazi Lie."
Obama is probably wetting his undies(when Lybia comes up) just thinking about this Tuesdays debate. Obamas caught between a rock and a hard place here: Obamas first debate was an exercise in futility at the least and Bidens debate was an act of insanity. Obama will now have to continually think of facts(some baloney to spout)and try to control his demeanor. He'll probably crash and burn big time in Tuesdays Debate?
As with Fast and Furious, 0bama is spinning spinning. So much so that he hopes the mind-numbed robots will tire of this and go on with watching Dancing with the Stars. I think it's a commie trick. BS it as much as possible and soon no one cares.
A CEO in the White House-can we get so lucky? A CEO who has limited his needs to 250 mil for self and family and gone out of the money accumulating business and served where called or needed in Olympics and Mass where fiscal problems were solved (temporarily in Mass-they re-elected a tax and spend dem)
obama stuck w3ith his record and if he goes for the I got Osama headlines and credit he just whips up more mid-East riots and terror strikes. His underlings expendible (?) this might have been tried but the American public is war weary.
Even the corrupt leftist media cannot save obama from his record or his muddle in the middle East.
Boots on the ground on the Syrian Border? And a plan to put all the Special Forces on one ship in the Gulf--who thought that one up? The Ayatollahs? The Seals and other Special Forces used by dems as if they were supermen--they do make good photo ops.
How much does it cost to train a Special Force troop? It takes a long time and can't just be drafteed off the street. IOW they are not as expendible as the dems who use them seem to think?
Immediately after the murders and for weeks after we heard: “it was due to an offensive video”, “it was caused by a video” “we now know the attack was spurred by a video”, Video, video, VIDEO! That’s all we heard. Did a single enterprising reporter ask: “What evidence do you have that indicates the attack was caused by a video?” ??
I don't know why they thought the video thing was a good excuse. Regardless the reason for the attack,it is obvious there was not enough security. The ambassador and other Americans were murdered. So are they saying the video excuse makes the Americans a little less dead? What kind of mind works that way? There are lots of bloody hands in this matter that goes all the way to the top.
Don't you think t his is all Kabuki? That it is a distractionfrom Obama and the Junta'sterribel record. The MSM covers forthe lies and stops the coverage dead. reall no one knows about BenghaZI.Ask ten of yr friends if they know. But what these many folks see is almost nothing of election except polls and how Romney is doing. There is no discussion of Obama record tho. If people died in Benghazi, well "bumps- in-the-road in search for peace, right?
BO's record is appalling in just about everything. But the press is complicit by not probing in the slightest. They not only ignore, they actively cover for BO. They are despicable. As pointed out, when Republicans have the slightest whiff of a problem, the press is camped out asking leading questions that imply failure and corruption.
But for BO, no curiosity whatsoever. Everything is fine. Ignore a murdered ambassador. Ignore 23 million people out of work. Ignore crushing poverty. Ignore massive deficits. Ignore an economy crawling on it's knees and about to fall down on it's face. Ignore 2000 dead in Afghanistan. Ignore out of control crony-ism. Ignore a world in chaos. Ignore continual lies, deceptions, and breathtaking incompetence.
BO's pants are 5 alarmers but the press doesn't care.
I just lifted this from ''the site which must not be mentioned'':
According to Col. Hunt (Fox News contributor and Howie Carr regular) as soon as the alert button in the U.S. Libyan Consulate (U.S. sovereign territory) was pushed signaling that it was being attacked a dozen or more monitoring units through-out the world (European, African, Nato, U.S. States Dept. in DC area, etc.) were alerted and instant monitoring began (including the audio and video being sent [real time] from the Consulate's security cameras and the on air voice transmission of Ambassador Steven's aide. With-in MINUTES protocol dictates that The President be alerted, the Sec. of Defense, the Sec. of State, the heads of the CIA, FBI, etc. be alerted ... the monitoring took place for the entire six hours that the attack lasted.
The 09/11/12 terrorist attack [on U.S. sovereign ground], assassination and murders began at 9:30 PM Libyan time = 3:30 AM Eastern U.S. time. Apparently, when that "3 AM Phone Call" came-in ... President 0bama turned-over and went back to sleep as did Sec. of State Clinton.
Can anyone here confirm the ''alert/panic button'' reference? Anyone of us ever work at or for an embassy or consulate??? Is this what Charlene Lamb was doing? If so, why didn't she light up the board with red alerts???
#1 and #2, right on the money....however, Harry Retard is delaying any further investigation until after the election....so, if zero is back another 4 years, God forbid, there will never be a thorough investigation, plus, this delay gives them a chance to clean up even more so less can be 'found'.... I heard that a lot of our weapons are in the hands of Al Qaeda and seals are looking for them. Who handed them the weapons???? Zero??? Is this another Fast and Furious?
Lies Lies Lies A Sea of Lies Washington Lies Academe Lies TV MSM Lies The Diane Sawyers of NY are as criminally prone as are the Obamas of DC, and they both protect each other without hesitation. What a racket !
#56 and #62 I agree wholeheartedly with you about the corrupt enemedia!THEY are the ones keeping the 47% STOOPID and THEY are the ones keeping Obama/Biden from the mounds of criticism that they both deserve. We have three enemies haunting us in our beloved US of A...the idiots, Obama/Biden, and the ass-press. Wish they'd all just relocate...dont you?
Obama's problem is that he can't afford to offend the muslims. All of this mayhem and murder is part of his plan to cause massive destruction in the world and tear it down to the point where sixth century barbarians can take it over. Then his primary wet dream is to become their grand mullah or whatever the head murderer is called. The man is insane and the sooner his handlers realize it, the better off we will all be. If he doesn't go peacefully, so much the better.
#57--sounds like these bureaucrats just watched, in real time... as US territory was overwhelmed and Americans were murdered before their eyes.
What are we supposed to think here: they 'just like to watch'??!
No one budged when it was reported that SEC lawyers were watching porn 8 hours a day, instead of watching Barney Mae bring down the global economy.
Now we have our foreign representatives murdered ...and these Zombiecrats pretend they 'monitored' but didn't actually see anything. Yet, they were very quick to arrest some poor schlub in the CA suburbs. And they're still lying about these ''bumps in the road''.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services told contractors not to cooperate with Congress’s efforts to investigate work related to the Obamacare website, a top Republican lawmaker said. (snip)The department may have sent similar letters to other contractors working on the implementation of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, wrote Issa, a California Republican and chairman of the House oversight committee. The department’s actions constitute “criminal obstruction of a congressional investigation,” he said in the letter. Joanne Peters, a health agency spokeswoman, didn’t provide immediate comment on Issa’s accusations.
TRENTON — The George Washington Bridge flap just went national. A Democratic group connected to Hillary Clinton is launching an attack against Gov. Chris Christie based on the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey’s closure of lanes to the nation’s busiest bridge, according to a report on CNN.com. (snip)“Correct the Record, formed in part to defend Hillary Clinton, is an arm of American Bridge, an pro-Democratic group that specializes in opposition research. The group launched a graphic Tuesday showing the Republican Garden State leader in front of the George Washington Bridge with a traffic sign that says ‘political retribution’ and
Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield said it will not renew any small group or individual health plans that were set to expire after this year, despite receiving permission to do so by New Jersey’s insurance regulator. In a statement, Horizon said it was impossible to issue new health plans under a tight time frame before the end of the year. "Horizon BCBSNJ has been working to implement the Affordable Care Act for the past three and a half years, and undoing our work and essentially creating new plans in three weeks has proven to be impossible," said Thomas Rubino, the insurer’s director
U.S. Rep. Albio Sires (D-8th Dist.), who immigrated to the United States from Cuba as a child, today slammed President Obama for shaking hands with Cuban President Raul Castro at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in South Africa. “I was disappointed to view the handshake between President Obama and the Cuban dictator Raul Castro at what was a moving service to memorialize Nelson Mandela,” Sires said in a statement. Sires is an outspoken critic of the Cuban government. When Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) — another Cuban-American — was going through a series of scandals early this year, Sires suggested that the controversy could
New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez popped the question to girlfriend Alicia Mucci in the Capitol Rotunda Monday. Menendez, who has two children from his first marriage, celebrated his engagement at the White House Congressional Ball, hosted by Joe Biden since President Obama traveled to South Africa for Nelson Mandela´s funeral. The news was first reported by Politico´s Mike Allen but Tuesday morning, Menendez took to Twitter to thank "my family & friends for their love & congrats." Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was among those who passed on their good wishes on Twitter. Please spell out source
On the day of Nelson Mandela’s death the South African Communist Party chose to reveal a fact that it had long denied: that he was a party member. Indeed, at the time of his arrest he was on the Central Committee. The statement read: "At his arrest in August 1962, Nelson Mandela was not only a member of the then underground South African Communist Party, but was also a member of our Party´s Central Committee... After his release from prison in 1990, Cde Madiba became a great and close friend of the communists till his last days." Commenting on this revelation,
A Delaware bankruptcy judge has approved court documents outlining a sale process for failed electric-vehicle maker Fisker Automotive The judge on Tuesday granted interim approval of Fisker´s description of its bankruptcy plan and the process for creditors to vote on it, although he expressed concerns about the quick pace with which the case was moving. Attorneys for the committee of unsecured creditors said they agree with the current case schedule. Anaheim, Calif.-based Fisker, which had planned to build cars in Delaware, filed for bankruptcy protection last month, ending a long downward spiral after receiving a $529 million loan commitment from the U.S.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
