The secret war behind Benghazi
New York Post, by Kyle Smith

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 8:28:32 AM

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the US consulate because of a secret low-level war in which American hit squads took out leaders of al Qaeda militias, which retaliated in Benghazi. There was never a protest at the consulate over the infamous anti-Islamist YouTube video. So says the new 80-page e-book, “Benghazi: The Definitive Report” (William Morrow) by Jack Murphy and Brandon Webb, two military veterans who specialize in reporting about clandestine operations at the website SOFREP.com. Their book, which they say is based on interviews with well-placed security types but contains

Comments:
The allegations contained in this book are shocking. Will they allow Brennen´s nomination to go forward? He´s really a dangerous, deadly man.

Re: "“The nature of these operations remains highly classified. They were never intended to be known to anyone outside a very small circle in the Special Operations community and within Obama’s National Security Council. Ambassador Stevens, the CIA chief of station in Tripoli and then-director of the CIA, Gen. [David] Petraeus, had little if any knowledge about these JSOC missions.”

Appears that Obama has updated Nixon´s "plumbers" with a special assassination team outside of normal military and civilian control as well as congressional & judicial oversight. May explain why none of the 32 Americans who fled Benghazi on 9/11/12 have never been allowed to testify. Nixon´s plumbers led to his impeachment, as did Nixon´s secret bombing of Cambodia.

The number of things this would be dictator could be impeached for is vast, the inaction by the gutless spineless cowards in the House is just mind numbing. The country is in the hand basket headed swiftly for that other place.

Assassination Czar.

The group controlled by Brennan is not military. Not CIA. It is Obama´s own private special operations force run by Brennan, who also runs the drone assassination program. The special ops force and Brennan neither answer to nor brief Congress, CIA, or DOD. They answer only to Obama. Obama´s personal and VERY PRIVATE Republican Guard.

Very interesting. It all fits the pattern of this regime. John Brennan is Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. He was appointed to that post, which does not require Senate confirmation.

Assassination Czar.

Sooooo, we have learned in the last 24 hours that Benghazi was a CIA operation. Chris Stevens seemed to play the role of facilitator. He was only guarded by CIA people. He needed more. The survivors must have been CIA folks. Hillary seemed clueless although the look on her face when those bodies came back was unbelievable. She knew they all were in trouble. She didn´t recover very fast from that. Obama seemed to get his bearings a lot faster because he went into CYA mode faster than anyone.

The whole Arab Spring debacle is mostly facilitate by our CIA and John Brennan. This is a huge foreign relations failure. Rush called it back then. Pray that this blows up in Obama´s face.

"The Joint Special Operations Command, which Brennan controls, is a collection of special forces outside of the regular military command originally formed as a hostage-rescue team. But in the middle of last summer, say Murphy and Webb, troops operating clandestinely under JSOC began infiltrating Libya."

It says, "outside the regular military command." Is that constitutional??????

The constitution does not give the president the power or the authority to put together a secret army with no judicial or congressional accountability or oversight. A secret military arm with a black budget and available to assassinate anyone, American or foreign, that the president feels inclined to assassinate. Nor does the constitution permit the president to secretly arm foreign countries or agencies with no congressional or judicial review.

This president must appear before a select committee at the very least, and if evidence supports, face impeachment by the house and trial by the senate.

If this does not happen now, we have lost the country. Every citizen, like it or not, now has a clear and present duty to do.

It is way past time to put Gen Petraeus under oath and get to the real reason for his abrupt resignation right after the election. There is much more to it than a Bimbo Eruption.

It would be very much like Obama to have special forces operating in secret and reporting to someone nominally in Homeland Security. This will be the group called on to assassinate the leaders of the coming revolution that starts at the grass roots level when people realize their rights have been ended.

Anyone who served in the military understands the importance of chain of command and unity of command.
This president´s handlers are violating those concepts, which, in the end, will cause them substantial grief.
Military field grade officers and above must be beside themselves, as they watch what the kenyan klown is doing.
And putting brennan in charge of anything is no different than putting your slightly crazy uncle in charge of the family reunion.

They provide zero sourcing. None. It reads like they´re trying to sell a screen play. People need to come forward and talk.

I´m convinced there are leaders in N Africa and the ME that know the whole story. Netanyahu does. Mossad is all over Libya.

The attack location at Benghazi was obviously a CIA operating base that was using the "Consulate" as cover. That´s why the administration has not publicly identified all of the 30 or so survivors who some in Congress want to de-brief.

Obozo, Biden, Clinton, Brennan, Patraeus, Rice, et al, knew what was going on all the time, and are now they covering up for that clown, Obozo. They´re all lying!!!

They were arming Al Qaeda and it blew up in their face. Not only that, there are allegations of their gunrunning to Syria.

It´s more likely that Stevens knew everything and that´s why they let him die.

Nixon was forced into resignation after Watergate because of the very real threat of impeachment. The media made a huge deal of Watergate and was never going to shut up.

Nixon was never impeached. He was threatened with impeachment, and resigned before it happened.

The situation is very different now. The media is still (mainly) covering up for Benghazi. Without the media manipulating the opinions of the LoFo´s in America, Impeachment of Obama over Benghazi (even if successful) could backfire into another Democrat Presidential election in 2016.

Mediaite, by Josh Feldman    Original Article

Ted Cruz weighed in on the Cliven Bundy situation with Texas radio host Chad Hasty Tuesday, and he called the standoff between Bundy supporters (some armed) and federal agents a tragic situation, but one that was the “culmination” of how President Obama has been pushing for a bigger and more intrusive federal government. Cruz said that since Obama took over, “we have seen our liberty under assault” from a government “hell-bent on expanding its authority over every aspect of our lives.” He went after Obama for eroding the nation’s constitutional liberties and not understanding the point of the federal government is to

In a case about a pregnant woman who used cocaine and endangered her unborn child, the Alabama Supreme Court affirmed (8-1) that the word “child” includes “an unborn child,” and that the law therefore “furthers the State’s interest in protecting the life of children from the earliest stages of their development.” In his concurring opinion, Alabama Chief Justice Roy S. Moore wrote that “an unborn child has an inalienable right to life from its earliest stages of development,” and added, “I write separately to emphasize that the inalienable right to life is a gift of God that civil government must secure

Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas) on Wednesday said he plans to introduce a bill to prevent Internal Revenue Service employees who are delinquent on their taxes from receiving bonuses. A report this week from the Treasury Department inspector general for tax administration found that the IRS had given more than $2.8 million in bonuses and other rewards to workers who had been cited for various types of misconduct, including a failure to pay their taxes. A Johnson aide said the congressman’s bill would prohibit the IRS from giving bonuses to employees who owe back taxes that are not caused by willful

Attorney General Eric Holder on Wednesday called Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent in the Supreme Court’s latest affirmative action ruling “courageous.” At an event on diversity within the Justice Department, Holder said it’s tempting to think the struggle to overcome discrimination has ended when people like him or President Obama have reached the nation’s highest ranks. But, he said, the fight for equal rights is not over. "[This] great country still has a ways to go before our founding promise of equal justice and equal opportunity is fully realized,” he said. Holder quoted Sotomayor in the dissent she filed a day

Former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, now a K Street lobbyist, is gathering with several Chicago Republicans for a public event aimed at yet again building support in Washington for amnesty, Roll Call reports. Hastert, now a lobbyist for Dickstein Shapiro, has been pushing comprehensive immigration reform for some time. In a February Politico op-ed, he endorsed the House GOP leadership immigration “principles” writing of illegal aliens that “we should provide them with a path to citizenship.” Hastert is headlining an Illinois Business Immigration Coalition (IBIC) conference at Chicago’s prestigious Chicago Club on Tuesday.

So long, Ohio. According to a federal judge Monday in Henry v. Himes, the U.S. Constitution now requires that the laws of one state automatically supersede those of Ohio, whether or not Ohio approves. The circumstances surround same-sex marriage, though the precise legal issue is one that has been flying below the radar for some time – the recognition by one state of another state’s same-sex marriage. In the case, several same-sex couples with marriage licenses from California, Massachusetts, and New York sought recognition of their relationships in their home state of Ohio, where marriage is defined as between only one

Americans take electricity for granted. It powers our lights, our computers, our offices, and our industries. But misguided environmental policies are eroding the reliability of our power system. Last winter, bitterly cold weather placed massive stress on the US electrical system ? and the system almost broke. On January 7 in the midst of the polar vortex, PJM Interconnection, the Regional Transmission Organization serving the heart of America from New Jersey to Illinois, experienced a new all-time peak winter load of almost 142,000 megawatts. Eight of the top ten of PJM’s all-time winter peaks occurred in January 2014. Heroic efforts by grid

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning
