Obama Knew
National Review Online, by Jeffrey Lord

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 10/25/2012 6:16:01 AM

Obama knew. Say again, Obama knew. So. The question. If what happened in Benghazi wasn't incompetence -- was it ideology? Did Sharia kill Ambassador Chris Stevens, Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, and two Navy SEALs? And is Hillary Clinton's insistence yesterday that the leaked State Department e-mails were "not evidence" yet more evidence that indicates the Obama White House not only knew what was going on but deliberately turned a blind eye to Benghazi because of that ideology? Specifically, did an ideological soft spot for Sharia -- Obama's name is being used by his step-grandmother to raise funds to educate kids in Sharia --

Excellent article and indicts Obama's ideology that he so studiously tries to hide from Americans. I am outraged!

This should be a Must Read.

Mara Liason stated last night that the press was ready to do big stories about Libya, but scrapped them when Romney didnt bring up the issue. Too Which Krathammer stated that its journalistic malpractice to blame the Republican challenger for not covering the biggest scandal since Watergate.

For the "intelligence community" (to use FTA: ''Vice President Biden's words from his debate) to be specifically monitoring Facebook and Twitter for Ansar Al-Sharia means the Obama Administration well knew Ansar Al-Sharia was out and about in Benghazi. Yet somehow it didn't see a threat coming on, of all dates, September 11?'' and, ''Who killed Amb. Stevens? Sharia killed Amb. Stevens.''

0bama is doing exactly what he said he would do back in 2008. Side with the muslims. Every step of the way.

No, 0bama killed Amb. Stevens.

Let’s play “what if.” What if you were a president who had come up through the American left, and all your connections came out of that international globalist socialist movement? You know, the crowd that has joined with the muslim brotherhood and other radical islamic groups to oppose the Israeli “oppressors.”

What if you were in the middle of a losing campaign and heard, through your American leftist friends, that some middle east friends of theirs were planning some anti-American demonstrations on 9/11? What if your people decided to use them to your political advantage, and put together a narrative blaming the demonstrations on an anti-islam video made by a Christian in America, and linking the video with American Christians and that pesky US Constitution?

What if you roll out that narrative in Cairo by issuing an apology even before the demonstrations start? And when all heck breaks loose that evening in Benghazi, might you assume that it’s just part of the political theater you knew was coming? Might you wink at your co-conspirators and head to bed for a good night’s sleep before your Vegas trip the next day? And might your horror at the discovery that people were killed cause you to stick with the planned narrative in a desperate attempt to conceal your treachery?

Who in the White House knew the Cairo demonstrations were coming, and how long in advance?

Yes, but the media was eventually forced to cover Lewinsky and they are now being forced to cover this - just in time for the election.

If there was one single molecule of honor in the entire damnocrat party, they would be demanding zippy's resignation yesterday. But radical ideology and power trumps everything - even dead ambassadors.

None of this matters because Obama still has alqueda on the run. They're running over the middle east and are re surging in Afghanistan.

Why do people have such a hard time believing Obama's failures are actually a success?

the economy is fine because there's a convenience store open down the street.Ooops,sorry,owned by a Pakistani.

Nah, Jeffrey .... you've got it all wrong.
As Hillary, Old Media, Jay, Mara and others at the White House continue to tell us, this is all just a supposition. Besdes, there is no 'controlling legal authority' which will step forward to blame the president. Someone might aim at Hillary, but never at The Won.
.... Besides that, Americans have been doing 'stuff' that angers Islamics, so who can blame them for attacking our embassies and murdering our ambassadors and others?
.... We asked for it.

NOW -- WE find out obama knew and still went off to his fund raiser in lasvegas and never sent in military to help Amabassor Stevens as the war room in the White House watched the film from the drone hovering near by...

Like most terrorist orgainzations, Al-Quada is comprised of "cells". That is individual units operating independently towards a common goal. Killing one member, even a very senior member such as Bin-Laden, damages only a very small fraction of the organization, leaving the rest of them untouched and completely operational. This concept is nothing new. Our intelligence agencies know this well. Presumably "The smartest man in the room" would know this also. But no, he crows about Al-Quada being "on its heels". He knows its a lie.

Good heavens! She is still out there shilling, shucking and jiving. Her phoney statements, pretending she truly wants the examining board to find out what 'really' happened, just don't ring true.
And Hillary, these men whom you knew 'personally' and whom you expressed such pain about losing, why did you leave them to die?

The "acts of terror" reference in his Rose Garden speech was a calculated insertion of an escape hatch. He knew what really happened and wasn't sure if he would get a media pass on it so he (i.e. Valerie Jarrett) inserted this ambiguous reference to terror so he could use it for cover if necessary.

I like how the new spin includes that the information in the e-mails is "social media", as if e-mails are only used for teen gossip. I wonder if Stevens had made a phone call Hillary would refer to phones as "social media" too to downplay his cry for help.

Knowing isn't the issue. It's what he did when he found out that needs exposure.

Romney was dead on correct when he told the joke about the media's job being to hide Mitt's plan for America. He could easily have dropped the other shoe about hiding Obama's actions but too gentlemanly for that.

If they had gotten this movie nonsense to stick and he got re-elected, the movement to stifle free speech and the internet would have soon followed, just like gun control after f&f. Guaranteed.

Am I wrong or is this not a complete derelict of duty on the Fraud-in-Chief. And if so this is an act of treason, and why is Congress not taking action? Whether Obama knows it or not the Congress has power over him to remove him from office in one way or the other.

I really think that when one is a Christian, you get a wisdom and ability it see things with God's eyes. I am so glad I did not vote for this evil man named, Obama. He is truly evil. I would be very afraid for my sons if one of them was in the military. This president would not protect them. Every thing he does is for his re election. It's all about him. People who still support him are blind, deaf, and dumb. Truly! This country will go down if he is re elected.

As other posters have suggested, could the Ambassador have been assured by his gay pal Zero, that this was going to be a staged, election-winning, hostage-taking event, and for them to go along with the plan... with reporters on sight taking pics of *hostages*... Stevens and his men, brave hostages with black material tied over their eyes, and their hands tied behind their back, with snarling terrorists holding guns standing beside them, and the media pleading with the Great Zero to bring home our American Hostages. Great Zero thumps his caved-in chest, brings the hostages home, and their stories glow with love for Great Zero. October surprise. Zero wins election and all the participants get perks.

I have a different take on it.

I think Obama is a pacifist (coward) who thinks if he cow-tows to the Sharia bullies (among other Muslims), they will back down & stop hating/killing us. He is already forcing our troops to announce their presence before they start attacking terrorist cells in the Afghan region. So it will be a "fair fight". As if that's how they play!

He thinks if he goes after them he becomes a GW Bush "cowboy" that will only incite more violence. So he gets tough with the good guys:

Video documentary makers (who expose Islam)
Israel (the Gaza strip occupiers)
Pro-Lifers (anti-women)
Millionaires (Wall Street, Eeeevil Oil; celebs not included)
Tea Party (racists) --
i.e. anyone who has the guts to stand for the truth but is non-violent.

Too bad he didn't grow up learning about America. What happened to Iran's American hostages when "cowboy" Reagan was elected? Carter was the same kind of pacifist coward & they were taken on his watch. These Muslim bullies coughed them up just before Reagan took office! I am absolutely convinced this Embassy attack would have never happened with a man of courage in the WH.

# 33 Of course Mortargate
is a high crime and misdemeanor
and clearly Dereliction of Duty.
It is unimaginable that the Commander in Chief actually watched Americans being slaughtered, shrugged
and then went to bed.
Of course , this same guy has shrugged the past 44 months
over the 1514 soldiers , sailors and Marines that have died
under Valerie Jarrett's command in Afghanistan ,
the 264 service members who have died in Iraq and
the 13 dead soldiers at Ft Hood .
What's another four dead white guys ?
The way Congress is now configured , the House would impeach Obama , but, the Democrat Senate would never convict.
Politically , it would be a huge distraction to start impeachment proceedings.
Don't forget , though ,that
We the People can impeach Obama in 12 days.
Removal will have to wait until January 20, 2013.

Just take a good look at that photo of BHO with David Letterman and tell me our president isn’t the essence of gravitas. Remember “gravitas?” Remember the who-has-it and who-doesn’t discussions about gravitas? (I’ll betcha he even cried all the way to that fundraiser in Vegas.) Those are the kinds of presidential qualities he possesses. He knows what his priorities are. He never loses sight of his serious commitments and responsibilities. Oh, and thanks to his nanny, Valerie Jarrett, he now knows gravitas is not what you pour over your mashed potatoes.

I think #7s scenario is highly credible, and there are other theories out there that go even farther,in what the plan was. But bottom line - the behavior of inaction that was on display here can be completely explained by the idea that this was an expected event. I just differ with the concept that obama et al were horrified at the murderous turn that it took. Horrified that it can be their downfall,maybe, much more than the horror at the loss of life. These people have no souls. I am boiling, boiling mad.

From a previous Lucianne post:
http://www.oregonmag.com/blasphemy-begets-conspiracy-theory/"

"So, did someone encourage Mideastern TV stations to suddenly focus on a dated, obscure film’s existence? Who has ties to the Hollywood/internet powers that be who would know what motivates news and what doesn’t, and then who or what organization took advantage of the turmoil to where our embassies were stormed and/or burned in multiple countries? One could claim a conspiracy about an election-year October surprise occurring in September, caused and/or fomented by a 2012 Plumber’s group connected to an Administration from none other than Chicago."

Easter Egg Roll Looked Like

President Benjamin Harrison had a crisis. A child had let go of a balloon in the White House, during the Easter Egg roll on April 22, 1889. And we all know how hard it can be to get a balloon down from the corner of a ceiling, lest deal with the child suddenly stripped of a most prized and buoyant plaything. The guests noticed. "Here it remained during the afternoon, and was subject of universal comment as to the best means to be resorted to in order to get it down again," a Washington Post reporter wrote of the day´s

A thief was forced to stop the car he had stolen minutes before and release the children in the back seat after the a pair of 7-year-old twins attacked the driver with a toy snake. The car was taken from the home of Lucia Lozada in San Antonio, Texas on Thursday as the mother of the twin boys and a 1-year-old buckled in the back seat stood just a few feet from the vehicle. The family was preparing to go to church and the children´s father had just run back inside the house to get a baby bottle when a man hopped

President Obama is right. He told Major Garrett of CBS this week that “Mr. Putin’s decisions aren’t just bad for Ukraine. Over the long term, they’re going to be bad for Russia.” I believe that Putin’s adventures in Russia’s “near abroad” are a mistake. Indeed, they are part of a whole tapestry of wrongheadedness. It’s also bad for the Kremlin to crush dissent, censor the news, and hobble the economy by handing it over to oligarchs and a kleptocratic bureaucracy. Putin’s scapegoating and demonizing of gays isn’t only morally wrong, it’s not in Russia’s long-term interests either. That Putin prefers to

Matt Bevin, who is running against Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary, has come out with a new ad defending his claimed affiliation with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Bevin tries to sidestep the MIT controversy in his latest ad by claiming that he never portrayed himself as a graduate of the prestigious school. “I’m a small-business owner, I’ve not had a resume in over 20 years. I’ve never claimed on a resume or to anyone ever that I’m a graduate of MIT. This is a lie made up by Mitch McConnell to distract you from

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. The bushy-tailed visitor

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

I began reading the entirety of the first section of the New York Times at nine years old, and continued that practice, more or less, for decades.(snip) ...the power of reverence, intrinsic to what I call the “cascade” of The Times: the near avalanche-like flow and distribution of information through electronic and print networks: through like-minded network newscasts, magazines, local newspaper s, blogs, daytime talk TV, late-night entertainment, statements at media award ceremonies, the celebrity Twitterverse, etc. The cascade rolls through Saturday Night Live, Jon Stewart, The New Yorker, the mouths of third-grade teachers, Elmo, Madonna and Susan Sarandon …through

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s
