The web of deceit about
Benghazi begins to fray

Washington Times, by Wesley Pruden

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 11/14/2012 5:01:36 AM

What did the president know, and when did he know it? Of what steel are the Republicans in Congress made? We’re about to find out. Big scandals from little leaks grow. Watergate was at first only “a third-rate burglary.” Bubba thought he was only trying to cover up the details of a failed real-estate scheme down on the White River. Humiliation, resignation and even an impeachment followed. History warns presidents that second terms are never Sunday picnics, and the unfolding — exploding is more accurate — of the story of what really happened on a violent night in Benghazi, Libya,

"What the president knew" is not the issue. The "pResident" is supposed to know, is paid to know -- it is his job to know. Americans now question whether he was legally elected to know after the many reports of fraud in the recent election.

I, for one, do not have much faith in the "steel" that makes up the Republican party. I think it´s more like aluminum in their spines, rather than steel.

If Obama openly ripped the heart out of Romney on national TV, shouting, "Allahu Akbar", the media would find ways to praise, or excuse it, and his followers would cheer! The Senate would shuffle uncomfortably for a moment, perhaps, then solidly condemn any House action taken against this ´popular´ President as Racism.

That´s if Boehner suddenly developed the stones to protest the sacrifice.

Boehner is a Democrat operative, playing the part of a conservative, to steer our side off cliffs for Obama´s amusement.

Time for what others may label a ´tin foil hat moment´ ...
I wonder if Obama has pondered the possibility that he, himself, is the person being played by his handlers and that he may be forced into a Nixonian resignation.
.... Remember, it wasn´t the Democrats who removed Nixon from office. It was his own party.

like any of this "Nixonian" talk is really going to happen. There is not an honest
one in the bunch . Get used to 4 more years, if not more of this insanity.....it won´t be stopped by the weak and neutered GOP.Even Paul Ryan has to yammer on and on about how Obama won
fair and square. This bunch didn´t even belong in the "big leagues."

FTA:´´Looking to Congress for brave men and women who can unravel this web of deceit, a web perhaps woven of high crimes and misdemeanors, is usually a fool’s errand. But Congress is all we’ve got.´´

Doesn´t matter..... The press wont cover it and not a single democrat will vote for impeachment. At best, a small handful of 3rd stringers will take the fall.

If Obama were a republican, this would be a 24/7 story with demands of investigations. Remember Fitzmas? Remember Plame?

Of course Obama and co knew of this early on. That sat on it, like waiting to play a prized card in a poker game. This whole Springer type debacle is Obama and co trying to pin the blame of Benghazi on Petraeus, a distraction from what is important about Benghazi or a distraction about any talk of Obama stealing the election or some combo.

Recommend we don´t get too caught up in the details of the day by day, endless saga. I was channel surfing on the cable news on 11-13 and it was all they were talking about: Benghazi; Petraeus; the women; the new general involved yadda yadda yadda. It seemed futile to find a channel not discussing it all. Crazy.

´ look forward to the day when Hildebeast´s and Obama´s affairs are on the front burner, for all to see. No way they are loyal to those, ahem, "partners" and vice versa. Obama and co leak: Seal Team 6; Stuxnet involvement; gave a drone to Iran; etc as SOP and this is all the lsm can talk about. Sick, sick, sick media.

I´m encouraged by the Wash.Times printing this article. The DC/NYC MSM crowd can´t hide what happened in Benghazi forever - there is now a strong, powerful alternative to the biased news business.

In a way Generals Petraeus and Allen did us a big favor by being so stupid as to diddle around - thinking they were "too big" to get caught. They aren´t Donald Trump who doesn´t dance to anyone´s tune but his own, since he pays the bills. If you are on the government string, you can´t dance your own way.

Remember Iran-Contra?
The cover-up was to conceal the provision of weapons to the opposition to the Sandanistas.

The current cover-up is to conceal the provision of weapons to Al-Quaeda in Syria. Remember: Al Quaeda has been destroyed. Yet the Ambassador was gun runner in chief. Obama does not want that to come out.
And just as Oliver North did not know how to shred his hard drive, so also Gens Allen and Petraeus did not know their emails would live on in perpetuity.

"Their privates were giving them orders."

So down will come the house of cards.

Post #3 is absolutely correct.

The only thing which could cause criticism of Zippy would be if he suddenly declared himself to be pro-life. Then HE´D be the one with the heart getting ripped out.

As long as he´s pro-abortion - - he can never be touched.

You´re drinking the kool/aid poster #5 -- if you think the demorats will desert their meal/ticket....

Forget Washington DC -- folks.... WE need to go local. That means move to republican states. Grow the conservative base. Fight obama on each corner -- taxes, health/careless, Russia´s take/over of defense, U.N. take over of our sovereignty -- all the goodies that obama thinks he´s won....

Even if the republicans in DC negotiate with obama and sell US out -- locally WE will not stop pushing back....

According to this morning´s Wall Street Journal, Jill Kelley tried to persuade the FBI to drop the investigation after friends showed her how much widespread damage could result. The same article said Paula Broadwell sent anonymous messages to General Allen and other high-up officers warning against Jill Kelley. This after, supposedly, her affair with Petraeus had ended.

Patraeus becomes less and less appealing as the pictures and information unfold. Both he and Allen were hooked in by alpha sex sirens, enjoying power through sex. The powerful generals seem a touch pathetic and drained of their own importance, the woman, as not too bright, and not that pretty, bimbos.

The following statement may seem uncouth at the least, but it comes from a lowly cafeteria worker at one of Chrysler´s manufacturing plants in the 1970´s:"That Pussy is a powerful thing?"Please excuse me for posting this here, but when I was working for Chrysler in the 1970´s this particular woman happened to be working in the cafe at Chrysler´s and she made this statement. I can´t actually recall the circumstances as to it, but it is substantiated rather forcefully in the General Patreaus & Allen´s cases, no doubt.

Is it too much to hope for a democratic senator like Barbara Boxer who has at times been somewhat pro Military to grab hold of this along with McCain?

What of the possibility of the PIAPS not wanting to get thrown under the bus again and leaking some documents?

It will take something like that to even get this scandal off the ground. Otherwise Obama will skate on this. The media is too in the tank for him and even if they were not his supporters do not care

You need an example; Alger Hiss. Even 50 or 60 years ago the democrats were refusing to admit the truth. Hiss was a spy, he did give secrets to the USSR and no demonrat will ever admit it.

It´s time to suggest that the famous "video" was actually produced for Obama´s deception. After all, they were promoting, "featuring" the damned thing. Telling all these savages to get busy rioting and going crazy. Have y´all seen the video yet? What are you going to do about this insult to the prophet?

Wr know how diseased Obama´s mind is, his morals are worse. Do something Senators to save us from this saboteur of our Constitution. After all, what is the central feature of this whole affair? It was a hit on the Ambassador, who was shipping weapons to our enemies. How about talking about the stripping of secret documents from the Consulate? How about talking about the warehouses which were emptied of these weapons? What else is there to know? Know this: Obama is a traitor!

White House blames fox for

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.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital.

House Democrats, battered by Koch brothers ads and facing a grim outlook for the midterms, are providing the clearest indication yet of how they plan to respond: By shoring up imperiled incumbents and only the most promising challengers, but most likely leaving some of the party’s upstart hopefuls to fend for themselves. The strategy, detailed in nearly two dozen interviews with party officials and strategists, is a tacit acknowledgement of the ominous political environment Democrats are up against this year. The goal is to stop Republicans from padding their 17-seat edge and keep the party within striking distance of the majority

Washington – The National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group tasked with getting Republicans elected to the Senate, believes Republicans have expanded the 2014 playing field with five more contested races as the GOP seeks to retake control of the chamber. In a memo released to consultants Friday morning, NRSC political director Ward Baker writes that Republicans have become competitive in Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, Oregon and Minnesota since the start of the year. That´s in addition to nearly 10 Senate seats the NRSC has been aggressively targeting.

The captain of a South Korean ferry that sank off the southwest coast of South Korea this week with hundreds of high school students aboard was arrested early Saturday along with two crewmembers, the Yonhap news agency reports. The captain, 68-year-old Lee Joon-seok, was jailed on five counts of charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, Yonhap reports. The exact charges filed against the two crewmembers, who were allegedly operating the ship alone at the time of the accident, were not immediately available. Prosecutors, in seeking an arrest warrant on Friday, alleged that Lee had left the vessel in charge

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.
