Ever since an armed mob torched a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, President Obama has vowed to bring the killers of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to justice. Yet four months after the assault, U.S. counterterrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast that the hunt for those responsible remains stymied by poor cooperation by North African governments.On Tuesday, the Tunisian government released Ali Ani al-Harzi,
until the general public sees these questions in the msm, they will not be taken seriously. the republican leadership should be shouting from the rooftops, buying t.v. time and telling the people about this inept, corrupt administration. when these articles appear only in the conservative press, they are not only (usually) not read by anyone other than conservatives, the information is dismissed as conspiratorial, false or worse. here in ma. it is just about a lost cause, but in other states, you can have some influence on your elected republicans to speak out - have press conferences and the republican committee needs to buy time on prime time t.v. to give the other side as often as necessary. enough with the lying back and hoping for the best. it´s not working.
Oh so true, #3. Can you imagine the hay Dems would make from such a horrendous and shameful incident? Dems would have had the two parents who were willing to speak out initially before the committee and the news cameras. They would have played up the ambassador´s orientation as a reason for the neglect of his safety, the extreme bravery of the former SEALS, the prophetic last tweet of the gamer Smith, and the abject lies told by the O gang for weeks afterward to the families, the public, the UN. The stand down order would have become a drumbeat for impeachment. Perhaps someone slips valium or marijuana into the GOP´s food in the Congressional dining rooms, or perhaps there´s blackmail involved.
Isn´t it amazing that our politicians have, on the day it occurred, the solution to the massacre at the school, but can´t do ANYTHING about the bengahzi slaughter? They can´t even testify and report on it how many months after?
No one would have to wonder where the killers are , if Obama had tried to defend Americans under attack. My analogy is to a house set ablaze by an arsonist and then someone ordering the fire department not to respond. There are two areas to be investigated , not just the one the MSM is focusing on . I´m surprised Eli Lake hasn´t been reassigned to Antarctica-he´s bravely gone where the rest of the media refuses to go. You can´t just look for the murderers ( hint, hint..Islamic terrorists ) , the bizarre behavior of Obama on the night of the attack must also be investigated. The White House stated that Obama went to bed knowing that Ambassador Stevens and other white " bumps in the road " , were missing and the consulate under enemy fire. A normal and American Commander in Chief would had stayed up all night monitoring the situation primarily because he feared for the lives of all the 30 plus Americans at the consulate. Obama shows more affection and care for his personalized basketballs and special Nikes than he does for his fellow man. Reggie Love and Kal Penn being the lone exceptions ....
It might get a clear picture of an inept administration! Especially on national security! Naval gazing amateurs that have convened themselves of their superiority! As long as they lead we must lookout for ourselves! That´s one reason we need our guns!
The Benghazi gate Lie, the murders, have all been topped by the painful brutality of the school shooting. It was too convenient not to question its terrifying timing of both events. Reminds of WAG THE DOG, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, TELFONE. Yes that´s a brutal suggestion, but no more brutal than all the killings that are purposely being covered up. For all the amazing things that are happening in the creative free exchange world of today, these are terrible, deathly political deficit driven, greed ridden times
Amb. Stevens knew something Obama doesn´t want told, so O left him and all the others to die. He had no way of knowing the ex-Seals would be able to save 30 of those people when he went to bed. He thinks now if he ignores it, it will go away. I hope Hillary comes clean for a change. She isn´t famous for telling the truth.
I think we need to get rid of the notion that this building was a "consulate". It was a CIA station house under flimsy diplomatic cover complete with its own torture room. "Ambassador" Stevens was a CIA gun-runner funneling Gaddafi´s pilfered arms to Turkey for use by the Rebels in Syria. Those 30 survivore were all CIA agents so don´t expect them to appear in public anytime soon. They don´t want to be identified. The whole thing was an Obama/Hillary-concocted nightmare, run by incompetents. Job #1 for Obama was to lie to the American people about what happened.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
