At this point it's clear that the US had something to hide at Benghazi, and that's why reports coming out of the Libyan city have been so confusing. (Snip) WSJ reports that the State Department presence in Benghazi "provided diplomatic cover" for the previously hidden CIA mission, which involved finding and repurchasing heavy weaponry looted from Libyan government arsenals. These weapons are presumably from Muammar Gaddafi's stock of about 20,000 portable heat-seeking missiles, the bulk of which were SA-7 surface-to-air anti-aircraft missiles.
Obama feels if he can just get past Tuesday, he is home free. What if this election drags on like 2000? There are senate hearings for the 15th regarding Benghazi that will be hard for the pressitutes to ignore and more of this botched mess come more into the mainstream, will he be able to ride it out then as well?
There is no way they can control 20,000 portable missiles. They will become "Obama's Ultimate Revenge" some day. The takedown of multiple commercial airliners with these weapons would be a crushing economic blow and a spectacular future attack. If it occurs, Obama, Holder, and Jarrett should be arrested and tried for treason.
I have never understood the ability of this government to trust Muslims. It usually ends badly for us. Benghazi is a perfect example. Another example is the fact that they are killing the soldiers who train them. What have they done to earn our trust? A little more cynicism and a little less kumbayuh, please.
Benghazi must have been an October surprise that blew up in their faces. The ambassador was probably supposed to be taken unharmed, held hostage and then "saved" by the Great One on or about 5 November.
FTA: "The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation," officials briefed on intelligence told the Wall Street Journal, and there's evidence that U.S. agents—particularly murdered U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens—were at least aware of heavy weapons moving from Libya to Syrian rebels.
White House Insider (at Ulsterman's blog) said back in September: “What my gut is tellin’ me on this…that guy was no ambassador. Officially yeah – but off the books. He was CIA.”
On Oct. 4th, Canada Free Press asked, "Was Ambassador Stevens’ death a hit?"
There is ugly speculation that the Obama regime has been and still is, arming al Qaeda with sophisticated weapons, which have been and are intended to murder Americans, that the reason Benghazi dragged out for 7 hours, was because the terrorists were trying to prod a response in order to kill more SEALS.
Obie, Bite Me, and Piaps got caught with their hand in the cookie jar one too many times. As we peel the Benghazi onion a little bit more, we now see how Obie was going to intervene in Syria. Absolutely F&F on steroids. Another poster asks, how did Gaddaffi acquire SA-7 missiles in the first place? Let's peel the onion a little more and see what we find out.
Read an article in Red State and on Drudge days ago with the comments of WHY was a DRONE over Benghazi almost from the moment this incident began. Red State comments it has a 675 distance capability and flies at approx. 135/mph....so it had to be ordered about 3 hours in advance. WHY? WHAT were they planning to scrutinize? WHERE did the Drone originate? WHO gave the order for the Drone? http://www.redstate.com/2012/10/27/did-obama-refuse-to-aid-our-men-in-benghazi/
I want to her something from the 30+ people who didn't die in the attack. Are they some of the ones who are speaking off the record?
I understand that they were, for the most part, probably CIA, and they are not likely to come out in the open and talk, but it would be nice to know what they have to say about the minute-by-minute happenings.
30+ people didn't die, and they are the first-person witnesses to the entire event, and could clear things up fast.

Again, just like with Egypt and Libya, our own government is actively trying to dislodge Syria's Assad by arming the ''rebels'' who just happen to be al qaida and/or muslim bro'hood.... do I have that right?
Now why in heaven's name would we want to do that?
My skeptical nature tells me Obama and his gang of muslim sympathizers are actively engaged in extremizing (that a word? should be...) the entire Middle East to force out Israel because muslims hate Israel.
And us. What weapons are flowing here (Fast and Furious?) that are meant to end up in the hands of islamist extremists HERE?
Is that not AIDING AND ABETTING THE ENEMY? Say it loud, say it over and over: THIS IS TREASON.
I remember the press reports about the missing missiles during the conflict. This is what happens as a result of ineptitude. There was going to be only one way to secure these weapons. Boots on the ground. A good reason to have left Qaddafi alone. But not to "Mr. Drone" Obama. Those missiles may still come back to haunt us.
People are not mentioning that Obama was willing to allow 30+ people to die in Benghazi, not just the 4 who DID die. If Ty Woods & Glen Doherty hadn't stepped in as the heros they are, countless others may have perished.
Did he and his minions just think that 30+ consulate staff would be "collateral damage" in all this??? I can't fathom it.
My heart aches while my braincells explode in anger.
Sarah Palin is keeping up the infomercial peddler charge against President Barack Obama, criticizing his “ShamWow” speech in Boston and accusing him of lying to the American people. (Snip) “For starters we anticipated a presidential apology for lying to Americans repeatedly when he promised things like, ‘If you like your current health care plan, you can keep it.’ Make no mistake, he knew he was lying when he said that,” Palin wrote. “Was remorse and sympathy shown for Americans who now can’t afford health insurance thanks to Obamacare? Nope. … Obama didn’t lie to you when he said, ‘if you
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she would be "disappointed" in the American electorate if Hillary Clinton becomes a serious candidate for president in 2016. The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee argued Clinton would not be right for the role as commander in chief after four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, died last year in a terrorist attack against a U.S. consulate in Benghazi. (Snip) She said "anyone who would just throw away 200 years of military ethos and leave our men behind to be murdered" should "never be considered as a commander in chief."
Americans who are fed up with Obamacare won a victory yesterday. The House voted to defund Obamacare while still funding the federal government to avoid a “devastating” shutdown. (I shall not digress, but it’s beyond distressing to hear liberals try to convince Americans that any government slowdown is comparable to “terrorism.”) (Snip) I want no pity. I need no empathy. But use me as a barometer. Over the years, the leftwing media has falsely and irrationally accused me of everything from faking a pregnancy to abetting murder. They lie. Deal with it.
Now we can say it without a doubt: Seattle has the loudest fans in the world. During the Seahawks-49ers game Sunday, the 12th Man broke the Guinness World Record for loudest crowd roar, the record attempt’s organizer said. We have yet to officially confirm the report from former Seahawks player Joe Tafoya, but he tweeted from the field that the record had been broken. Seahawks fans hit 131.9 decibels, according to The Seattle Times, after the Seahawks and 49ers returned to the field from a weather delay. The previous record was 131.76 decibels, set during a 2011 soccer match at
It was an overcast, albeit relatively mild August day by Washington D.C. standards, fifty years ago today, as I joined the thousands walking along Constitution Avenue toward the Lincoln Memorial. Many of those in the crowd who had traveled vast distances by busses and cars from all over the nation, but in particular the deep South, had a look of apprehension bordering on fear, not knowing what to expect from the police and those vehemently opposed to unfettered civil rights. Despite the trepidation and regardless of skin color, nationality or faith all were determined to compel the nation to listen
Sarah Palin joined Eric Bolling on Fox News this morning to take a mini-victory lap over some Democrats suddenly embracing the idea she put forth years ago over health care “death panels.” Palin felt somewhat vindicated, but didn’t want to “condone them… for trying to jump off the Obama train wreck.” She told Bolling that rationing was in the health care law from the beginning, and the Democrats who didn’t notice it until now did not want to look like “buffoons.” (Snip) Palin proudly declared her allegiance to Team Rand, hitting Christie for his “schtick” of “set-up situations”
Back in September of 2008, Sarah Palin spoke at a Colorado Springs rally. During her address, she lamented the all-encompassing power of government sponsored mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. (Snip) She was, of course, pilloried for this. Virtually every mainstream media outlet pounced, accused her of ignorance, and reminded the American people that these were not taxpayer funded entities. Taxpayers simply weren’t a factor.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
