It is now obvious that the U.S. government's original story about the Benghazi consulate attack, delivered by its two heaviest hitters, the president and secretary of state, was false, and, more importantly, that it was intended to deceive. How can Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton outrun the scandal that now chases them, a scandal that makes Watergate look like cheating at tiddlywinks? As if "Fast and Furious" weren't enough, the administration now gives America "Slow and Spurious."
Comments: Does this mean that NBC will have to cover it?
The MSM will lie and cover up for Obama. The editorial in our local fish wrapper is a good example. Gives credit to Crowley for keeping Romney under control. Makes snide remarks about Romney and Obama's remarks about the Libya attack. In all it is a puking bit of butt kissing lies.
America has a short attention span. It's better to take your lumps and move on. These idiots kept their story alive only to justify cutting the military and saying all we need is special forces units. Pure craziness.

Just watched Fox & Friends comparison clips of Emperor Zero taking credit for being tough war hero pResident in speeches a week apart where in the early one he mentions al qaida on the run, and the one yesterday he doesn't.
What a fraud. And the people behind him, cheering his every utterance. Every time, I wonder if they actually hear what he's saying.... or, like Pavlov dogs, they respond JUST BECAUSE he's saying - something. Anything. Doesn't matter what.
We conservatives see Romney's faults, and we accept the fact he's not perfect, hoping we can work him to the right a little more after the election (depends on all our congressional races, folks). We always see reality squarely and deal with it as necessary.
These people behind Obama in his speeches - mostly college kids of course - whatever happened to youthful rebellion against authority? He has so convinced them that HE is the counter-authority. Well, he IS one of them, I suppose - perpetually immature, stuck at their age.
Candy Crowley became the topic of discussion from the 2nd Presidential debate for people who watched it. I have never seen my son in law so animated when talking about politics as when he wanted to share his observations about that debate. He is just 30 years old and he was outraged that Crowley had interrupted Mitt Romney's point. I think this will backfire on the Obama minions, BIG TIME, as Dick Cheney would say.
Yeah, old Candy girl thought hitching herself to obit's wagon in the debate would lead to a major boost in her silly, useless career. All she's got is a colossal failure, just like what we got in obit. Awh, too bad, so sad.
The old sleight of hand of a magician or master mind-manipulator or natural born pathological liar and you have the man in the White House who wants us not to look in the real direction, The direction of big win by alQaeda both on the ground slaking their blood lust but the propaganda victory as they drive our national narrative with help of the CIC and our corrupt lamestream media-self important narcissists all.
While we are looking the other way and at obama's Libya lie (what is one more klie to him? His media idjits have his back.)al Qaeda is dancing in the streets, around bon fires and abusing the dead bodies of their recent kills--raping, looting and pillaging. ( How do they keep Bill Clinton away?)
Sad fact is that al Qaeda is winning a propaganda war and the obama admin is helping them and the lamesstream media is aiding and abetting. Money to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood so they can bomb the Nile dams of their neighbors? Sure was good move by the warrior valkyries (We came, we saw, he died Hillary, exulting at her kill as Ghaddafi was being object sodomized for sport by the tribal brutes.)
We do not understand them but their fellows educated in the West or by Old Ned himself DO understand us. They are winning the propaganda war and rioting to win concessions to change the world in other forms of Jihad.
Bottom line, it may be obama's Waterloo but for the wrong reason that it should be. He should be having to face the fact of his failure to protect the American people from propaganda and deceit of a group he nostalgically favors due mixing and melding with the more peaceful Indonesian Muslims of his youth?
What I want to know is why, during Tuesday's debate and AFTER Crowley skewered Axelrod on her own CNN program re: use of the word terrorism, Obama said (twice) "LOOK AT THE TRANSCRIPT", which Crowley just happened to have with her.........(.even though she later had to walk BACK the fact that Obama was using the word terror generically at the END of a Rose Garden address ) after which he hopped AF1 to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, something Crowley also neglected to pursue( though THAT was the question)...the damage was done, and apparently Crowley is being celebrated at CNN, another reason NOT to watch that network.
In addition to the military cuts mentioned at #5, the Harriburg Patriot News hid this story deep within, assigning it to a blurb position. The 54-word first paragraph is all one sentence. Awful writing.
'A federal appeals court Tuesday threw out the terrorism conviction of a high-profile former detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Salim Hamdan, a Yemeni who served as Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard and whose case led to a landmark 2006 Supreme Court ruling striking down the Bush administation's first version of military commissions.' ....'The decision delivered a blow to the military commissions system, reducing the chances that many other detainees at Guantanamo will receive trials.'
I truly hope that this is Obama's swan song -- hope he is out of here -- hope we never have to listen to him again -- ever. Maybe he will go back to "where ever" he was born and stay there. God Bless America!!!. God give us our great country back, please.
What is so pathetic about Obama and his lies is that he was oh so rleived to have Candy jumpoed to is assistance about when he described this attack as an act of terror but explain to me Obama and Candy - what about Secy Rice a week later saying on 5 news shows that it was spontaneous?
#14, perfect. Hasn't the WH now been allegedly given the name of the terrorist who assassinated Stevens? This is a complete wag the dog: Obama comes walking forward in the debate, all offended about politicizing Steven's death and sternly tells the nation how he won't stop until those responsible are found. What amazing timing that just after his speech, the terrorist or useful idiot has been named. I suspect the Seals are already in place for a weekend attack. Perhaps he'll be buried at sea so he won't become a martyr. All of this just in time for the final debate.
The writer does a pretty good job until the end when he fizzles before saying just what is wrong with the Arab Spring and why the president and SoS were trying to protect its image. For that we'll have to go here:
On the strategic level, this administration has been a complete disaster. Obama has moved decisively against allies, failed to complete a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq (a grave and inexcusable mistake), and joined the naïve rush to endorse the various “Arab Spring” revolts and the resulting Islamist governments. As we pull out of Afghanistan, Obama’s Middle East legacy will be a hostile Egypt, Iran substantially closer to a nuclear bomb, Syria in chaos, Iraq slipping into neutrality (at best), portions of Libya under jihadist control, Afghanistan under renewed Taliban assault, and America as despised as it’s ever been, with the black flag of jihad hoisted over embassy after embassy. Oh, but we’ll have drones orbiting overhead, launching the occasional pinprick strike. Do you feel more secure?
I wish some investigative reporter would backtrack on the "Arab Spring". Was this started by some of Captain Zero's players to get all these countries under the Muslim Brotherhood control? The guy who won over Christine McDonnell for Senate was in Kenya some years back and was trying to set up an uprising of the youth there until he was chased out of the country. Code Pink (Medea Benjamin) was a supporter along with some others flew in to support the removal of Gadaffi and Murbarak--Andrew Breitbart confronted her on a plane trip from the East to California.
As furious as I am about the Candy Crowley cover for Obama, I wonder if it will help Romney. If America was level headed and clear thinking, maybe. Jimmy Kimmel did a piece the night before the debate and asked people who they thought won and why. The debate hadn't even taken place yet and the people they interviewed claimed to have seen it and what impressed them most about it. I cry for our country when I think about this younger generation who worships the ground this guy walks on because they think every thing is going to be free for them.
The most important aspect of this scandal is not being reported by anyone: The willingness of Obama, Clinton, et al, to trash the first amendment and free speech before the entire world. What precedent has that set? Furthermore, they were more than willing to ruin the life of an American citizen. That's disgusting.
The rhetorical and obvious question that is asked in this article is an easy one to answer. How will this travesty of incompetence, stupidity, and venality (playing politics with peoples lives)avoid being the fabled albatross around obama's neck? Easy! It will be shunted aside by the FDM (Federally Directed Media) thus becoming a non-story. It is happening already and according to the FDM, it pales in importance when compared to KILLING BIG BIRD.
They lie because the truth about aspects of 0bama's MENA policy. Think of a MENA Fast and Furious where instead of weapons going to the Sinaloa cartel, they are going to Al Qaeda.
The question is whether Ambassador Stevens was set up to be killed, was part of a plot to free the blind sheikh or was part of a botched kidnapping plot to make 0bama look good just before the election.
Don't question the lack of truth, the deception, lies and sleight of hand. It's all part of the process and they obviously have enough people snowballed that they think they can steal another election. It's not just Obama, he's a wooden dummy and has many people pulling his strings. The only thing that will bring truth back to the table will be a merciless housecleaning of government or full-scale revolution. Joseph Goebbels proved that these deception tactics work all too well and are very hard to fight through peaceful means because half of the population is delusional and is all too willing to be led to the slaughterhouse on the promise of another free meal. Fair play and appeasement will not save us but the 2nd amendment will.
The Coptic Christian that placed "Innocence of Muslims" in YouTube is still in Federal Prison in Los Angeles. The Pakistani doctor that gave proof of Osama for Obama is in prison too.
Obama apologized six times for the video in front of our enemies at the UN General Assembly on September 24. Monica's Boyfriend's Wife purchased TV commercials of Herself and Obama in Pakistan.
The US Embassy in Cairo apologized for the video before they were attacked on September 11, 2012. The mob was directed by Mohammed al-Zawahiri, the brother of the al-Quaida leader, and they flew the Black Colors of al-Quaidain our embassy.
Having a Muslim-educated president did not help us, did it?
I feel sorry for Seal Team Six and all the other Special Operations personnel who are being set up for a dangerous mission, probably this weekend, just so Øbama can look tough on foreign policy in Monday night's debate. He will send them on this mission regardless of the intelligence evaluation of the situation. He claims that our poor Libyan intelligence was responsible for the surprise attack in the first place and will now launch his "Wag the Dog" campaign video based upon the intelligence from the same groups.
It's really starting to look like this was all just a setup to deliver weapons to people in a way that would not otherwise be allowed. Is it possible this Administration would sacrifice American lives and an ambassador to accomplish such a thing?
Open hiring practices: that's what America needs, as well as this painfully awaited election. We need to know the hiring practices of all the unionized networks and newspapers. Showing big taxing government favoritism, regardless of whether or not they are already Communists, is the way any applicant qualifies. What are the tests they give to get into the world of Josef Geobbels? Hiring practices disclosure is a next big step in our New Media world of cleaning Old Media house, and eliminating criminal broadcasters, those who approve of anything socialist. So called "news people" stay in office forever, as long as they tow the Communist Party Line, or it's easily disguisable equivalent, like the soft Party Line, the way Marxist teachers throughout America disable thinking, otherwise healthy kids. Remember, for all time, one of the last new projects from Andrew Breitbart before his sudden, mysterious death, was his declaration that he was beginning a BREITBART EDUCATION.COM inviting children and parents to submit secret classroom videos showing teachers all across America as they indoctrinate the kids with "cultural Marxism". This is part of the do or die housecleaning needed to remove 60 plus years of communist marxist damage.
"Now, I want to make sure I understand what you were telling me last week in the second debate. You said that you knew this was a terrorist attack on the day AFTER the killings took place. Correct?"
O - "Uhhhh... ahh.... yes, but first let me..."
Romney "Well. I hope you can understand my confusion here, because all I heard for the next two weeks was that these attacks were the result of a spontaneous mob action that was precipitated by anger to a YouTube video. Susan Rice said it. Your Press Secretary said it. Hillary Clinton said it. The State Department ran ads on Pakistani TV that alluded to it. And, Mr. President, you said it on two talk shows as well as on the floor of the United Nations where your address mentioned the video now fewer than 6 times. What I want to know is this. How could you let the charade continue for two WEEKS after you claimed to have KNOWN this was a clear terrorist attack?"
Maybe this is Obie's waterloo, but still won't stop him from sending in the seals this weekend to Libya...just for the pure joy of covering his political behind ahead of his "debate" with Mitt next week.
Before "if you like your plan, you can keep it," the Obama left made a whole spate of false promises in the realm of sexuality. It´s worth connecting the dots between the folly of ObamaCare, an issue for which I wasn´t personally on the front lines, and the sweeping folly of sexual radicalism, an issue for which I was. In the rhetorical battlefield over sex and sexuality, the left rehearsed and perfected public-opinion warfare. These seasoned tactics led to the triumphal hubris of ObamaCare and the collateral damage of its inexorable implosion. Pick your antique allegory of overconfidence: the Tower of Babel,
"I´ve written two books," Senator Barack Obama told a crowd of teachers in Virginia on the campaign trial in July of 2008. The teachers applauded. "I actually wrote them myself," he added with a wink and a nod, and now the teachers exploded in laughter. They got the joke: Republicans were too stupid to write their books. Although few fussed over Obama´s second book, a first-person memoir/ policy brief published in 2006 titled The Audacity of Hope, Obama´s 1995 memoir Dreams from My Father had emerged as the sacred text in the cult of Obama "There is no underestimating the importance
Elect a Chicago community organizer (twice) as your president and you should not be surprised to find that all he is capable of is spewing propaganda and dividing us by personalizing attacks on those who oppose his grandiose, wildly impractical efforts at reshaping our lives to suit his sophomoric view of the good life. As the obvious failure of ObamaCare has become evident to all but his most blinkered cultists, Obama fell back this week on upping the propagandizing and deflecting attention from his failures with even more lies. His organizing arm OFA (Organizing for America) urged supporters to use this year´s
Those who wrote the PPACA legislation were much more brilliant than most conservatives have given them credit for. They have hidden a landmine in the way it all works that will ensure an eventual takeover of the entire health care industry by the government. Let me first clarify my professional interest. I have been a vendor of software and services to both insurance companies and providers, and therefore have a deep understanding of the health care industry and what the ACA will do to it. I do not work for any insurance companies or medical providers, nor do I own stock
MONTICELLO, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A video recording shows the mayor of the Sullivan County municipality of Monticello in a heated confrontation after being arrested by his own police officers. (Snip) He was taken into custody after showing up to take a look at a serious car accident on Main Street. A volunteer firefighter noticed the mayor looked drunk, according to police, and notified law enforcement. Jenkins was arrested on the spot. In a video recorded at his own police headquarters, a man identified as Jenkins was shown seated in a chair with one hand handcuffed to a wall. During the first
If you think ObamaCare is bad, just wait till you hear the new "peace" agreement that is due to be imposed on the Middle East over the coming weeks. Even if it works, a giant if, it will make the world much more dangerous: 1. Iran will have nuclear weapons, or it will be balanced right on the edge -- within one month or less to make nukes. 2. Saudi Arabia and Egypt will go nuclear, to balance Iran. 3. America´s role as a guarantor of peace will be blown, crushed by Obama´s betrayal of Israel and the Arabs. America´s nuclear umbrella, which
How fitting that abortion zealot and self-proclaimed Marxist Gloria Steinem received the Presidential Medal of Freedom on Wednesday from Barack Hussein Obama. The male-bashing, anti-family, anti-American Steinem beamed as the guy who voted three times against a partial-birth abortion ban while in the Illinois state Senate placed the medal around her neck. What exactly is the meritorious contribution Steinem has made to our national interests that would warrant such an honor? Ever since the radical feminist attended an "abortion speak-out" in 1969 hosted by the radical man-hating group Redstockings, she was "instantly committed" to the abortion movement.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
