Benghazi – During Attack Denis
McDonough and Tom Donilon Replace
President Obama and VP Biden…

The Conservative Treehouse, by Sundance

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 1/6/2013 10:15:40 AM

Two days ago we posted a discussion around a newly released photo from the White House. The picture was taken in the oval office on Sept 11th 2012: (Snip) The picture was taken at exactly 7:28:16pm DC time. It was dusk outside, and President Obama had just completed a phone call with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Why is this important? Because we know the conversation lasted an hour. (Snip) So this phone call between Benjamin Netanyahu and President Obama started three hours after the attack began.

The conversation with Netanyahu lasted an hour and both Obama and Biden were on that call. It appears that "fixers" McDonough and Donilon were the only national security staff on duty in the White House.

Great research from The Last Refuge aka The Conservative Treehouse. Consider also this article about Tom Donilon, and what he does for Obama, that appeared in the New York Times on September 23:

A Manager of Overseas Crises, as Much as the World Permits

Benghazi is still unraveling.

And as we asked two days after the attack - Where are the survivors who flew out the next morning to Germany?

It appears clear now they are CIA employees or contractors. The Obama team has them probably all over the world. The relatives whom we would normally see on TV are scared.

The Media - absent as usual.

The timeline as I understand it, was that Obama was out somewhere, returning to the WH at 4:50 pm on 9/11/2012. The log shows a private meeting with Biden and Panetta in the Oval Office at 50.
At 6:28 he was on the phone with BiBi, for an hour.
The facts will all come out..

This is sickening stuff:

Perhaps this insight from Newt Gingrich , after he spoke to a “key senator” provides some clarity to the “fog”:

“There is a rumor — I want to be clear, it’s a rumor — that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser’s office [Tom Donilon] telling a counterterrorism group to stand down,” [Newt] Gingrich said.” (link)

Newt Gingrich was specifically talking about his knowledge of a communication known by at least one Senator, and given to two media outlets - who did not use it. It makes sense:

Tom Donilon told people to “stand down” while POTUS and VPOTUS were on the phone with BiBi and unable to be interrupted. At 7:26pm (DC) 1:30am (Benghazi) -when this picture was taken – Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were fighting for their lives.

The article tells us that McDonough has little experience except in being a campaign hack and is even considered to be an amateur at that. And he has been "guiding" Obie in his foreign policy in Africa and the Middle East? Kissinger called them "the kids".

(hit Submit too soon)

McDonough was also the person who tied the anti-Muslim video and Cairo to the Benghazi attack. (He is the fixer, after all - the guy who comes up with the CYA story for Obie after the damage is done.)


The cover story already existed because earlier in the same day the State Dept was getting questioned about the attack in Cairo, Egypt. Again, at another embassy – and a story had already begun about a U-Tube video.

Just continue the same narrative story.

Which he did, effectively, the following day: [McDonough on Sept 12th]

“This work takes on added urgency given the truly abhorrent video that has offended so many people–Muslims, and non-Muslims alike—in our country and around the world.” (link)

After all, it was this same 41-year-old ”kid”, who was the key deflector between POTUS and the crisis that was “Fast and Furious“:

“Investigative journalists have provided details on McDonough’s background and work history in politics, but the information that makes McDonough relevant to the continually breaking news on the Fast and Furious scandal is his role in silencing complaints from the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)…” (link)

Strange article. Are they implying that conservative pressure to deal fairly with BiBi is the reason Zero and Biden were inattentive to attack on embassies and consulates throughout the ME on 9/11?

Benghazi started at 3:40 eastern while Panetta and Dempsey were meeting in the Pentagon, presumably in the midst of tracking via the Natl Mil Command Ctr what was already unfolding in Cairo as was State and the WH Situation Room. General Ham of AFRICOM was also in the Pentagon and CENTCOM had to be tracking. Both Panetta and Dempsey joined Zero and Biden in the WH just after 5pm with former FannieMae top lobbyist Donilon orchestrating. You know, the Donilon whose wife runs Jill Biden’s office and whose brother is a senior counselor to Biden. McDonough is Donilon´s poodle.

Why was an ad hoc team sent from the Tripoli embassy to help in Benghazi instead of US forces being sent to both Tripoli and Benghazi given the intercept that terrorists were targeting Tripoli and the embassy in Cairo was already under assault? Who made that decision? What US Navy assets were in the Med and in Southern Europe? What were Panetta and Dempsey doing from 6pm onward, and from where?

Precisely when did the first drone arrive over Benghazi and what video feeds went where? Did those in the 5pm WH meeting view any of the feeds? Did Zero and Biden go to the Situation Room at any time during the evening?

Well we are getting closer to the answer to the key question: who gave the order to stand down. What will be done about it? Who knows with the breed of politicians we have but but we need the truth. We can go on from there.

Let´s be clear:

A. The murder of Ambassador Stevens and the 3 other Americans was and remains Obama´s direct responsibility. That is why he lied and continues to lie about the entire event. There is no way for Obama to be honest, because he bears direct responsibility for not protecting our Libyan ambassador and for the disaster of Libya. Obama blamed the video because he could not blame Bush.

B. Obama authorized Holder to proceed with Fast & Furious, a clearly illegal gun running operation. The 300 dead Mexicans and the 2 dead US agents are directly tied to Obama´s decisions to allow 2,000+ guns to "walk" across the border to the drug cartels. Holder has been charged with contempt of Congress because Obama does not want his authorization to be made public. Obama did blame Bush for a highly constrained version of F&F, and that is all the press needed to ignore Obama´s criminal involvement.

Having said the above, it is sickening to realize that this dishonest, delusional and disatrous he devil was reelected.

Republican Congress Critters in both houses need to ask themselves WWDD(What Would Democrats Do)? We all know that they would "never let a crisis go to waste" in the party´s quest for power.

The Benghazi debacle must not be allowed to die of inaction by the Republicans, since we know that the Dems are praying that something new will come along to distract the American public before it gets too riled up over the unnecessary deaths of four Americans serving abroad.

The whole affair is an outrage and the pitchforks and a hangman´s rope need to be brought out by Americans who love our country and refuse to let this Fraud and his cohorts destroy it.

While God probably won´t intervene because man wants free will, I just pray that he will answer prayers asking for protection from this Evil that has our country and its Patriots in its grip.

There is video footage of the real time events happening in Benghazi... FOIA... Follow the time line...

However, inthe twisted world of liberal here is the story line:
On phone with Israel during attack, couldnt interrupt, therfore it is Israel´s fault we couldnt send in help.

Or : there was no story line on teleprompter telling The Won how to look, how to react, and what to say.
The "advisor" was stalling for more typing time to create story line.

The article is about the question "Who was in charge?"....it is not about the telcon with Bibi or what precipitated it. But both Obie´s and Biden´s being closeted for an hour with the "Do Not Disturb" sign up while this was raging in Benghazi - leaving in charge of national security two amateurs whose only interest is Obie´s image - is outrageous.

Those who don´t read this article and follow the links will be lost in the woods and replyaccordingly.

There has never been a question in my mind re who orchestrated events on the night of 9/11 and for that matter, our entire stance on Libya and Egypt prior to and since the toppling of Ghaddafi and Mubarak...it´s Donilon and a simple search of this site using his name including replies shows my consistency since Sept, even in the face of some on this site pointing to Jarrett.

Donilon ousted Zero´s first NSA Gen James Jones, has iced Hillary for Benghazi, killed the nomination of Rice to SoS, is pointing the finger at McDonough in this article, and is orchestrating the Kerry/Hagel nominations. Don´t under estimate his influence in the WH or his skill in playing Beltway hardball.

Lamecherry explains it another way...

The video was made by the filmmaker wo produced only one other film...it was for Eric Holder right before Waco about the Branch Dividians...

The video was referred to immediately upon uprisings in Cairo for a purpose...to pretend it was making the Muslim world angry ...so as to have cover for Benghazi...

The Lamecherry says Obama was going to have Ambassador Stevens kidnapped and the Obama would negotiate to have him back proving his power with the Middle East and giving Obama hero status before the election as Osama was too long in the past to effectively use for the election....

However, the Russians were angry over the takedown of Libya... and the humiliation of their guy Quadaffi´s, American approved rape and murder...and so sent in their own terrorists armed for a military attack so as to send Obama a message and warn him out of Syria....to stop sending arms, missiles through conduit Turkey....into Syria ...to take down another Russian ally.... Taking down Syria closes off Russia´s oil port distribution ...

Russia ran a victory lap on our Election Day ...with nuclear subs one hundred miles off our East Coast...

Our media is guilty of Treason...not reporting on Benghazi...Obama is so transparent for any willing to consider...

...What cover was Obama looking for to be on a two hour call with Bibi.. who Obama has avoided calling and meeting with at all costs...so he and Obama have the cover of a two hour phonecall with Bibi...Oh right!! Use your enemy to hide your lack of presence...carefully crafted by Obama, Biden, Donilon, McDonogh and Brennan....

Lamecherry gives much to ponder...

Where was Hilary when they denied Ambassador Stevens repeatedly requested more security only to have it denied?
Did Obama order Amb. Stevens to Benghazi to be kidnapped as suggested by Lame Cherry?
Was Hilary MIa because of an alleged drinking problem?
Are her falls and blackouts related?
No confirmation until Hilary testifies under Oath.
She lied about Travelgate under Oath and skated.
She cannot be alowed to remain viable as POTUS in 2016.
She has lied her way to power and prestige and four dead Americans are her Legacy.

NEW YORK - Last week´s Heartbleed Internet bug revealed a startling fact. The software protecting banks, email, social media and government is maintained by only a few people. They´re all volunteers. And only one does it as a full-time job. Their labor of love is OpenSSL, a free program that secures a lot of online communication. And it was a tiny coding slip-up two years ago that caused the Heartbleed bug, a hole that allows attackers to peer into computers.

The ground beneath the 100-foot hillside had been slowly giving way for almost two weeks before the downward movement accelerated in recent days. With rocks and dirt tumbling down, officials suspended efforts to shore up the slope and said they were uncertain what else could be done. "When is it going to go? How long is it going to last?

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.

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.

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

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.

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."
