Obama’s Libya statements
become ludicrous

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 10/10/2012 7:46:35 PM

Bring on the racks of “pants on fire” fact checks. Unload an army of Pinocchios to debunk the most egregious of the many untruths we’ve heard since the 9-11-2012 attack in Libya. In what is surely the most jaw-dropping of the many fudges, misrepresentations and outright lies by the Obama administration in handling the Libya attack that killed four Americans, we now hear from the State Department that it never linked the attack and death of four Americans in Libya to the anti-Muslim movie. I bet this comes as a bit of a surprise since you saw U.S. officials say just that for days.

Comments:
Did they really think the truth would never bubble to the surface?

One of the most surprising facts to come out today was that in Libya, as well as many other countries, our own security people are not allowed to carry guns, because that would violate the laws of the host country. (I believe Charlene Lamb, undersecretary of something or other, said that.)
So we have to hire citizens of the host countries to do the guarding. And I suppose that's adequate in England, or France, or Holland, but certainly not in a country full of filthy islamofascist terrorist pigs.

I do not know HOW Americans can be so calm when it is plainly proven that this administration LIES to us.
My sympathy and apology goes out to the families of the 4 murdered Americans that was covered up to save the arses of worthless, useless people such as Hillary, Obama and Rice. They have blood on their hands, and it is dripping down their chins as they play a game of politics.

Quoting the AP report in the article: "The State Department says it never concluded that an attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya was simply a protest gone awry..."


Quoting Danielle Pletka in the article: "And lying about the lie pushes the State Department into the realm of farce.”

But they are NOT lying about the lie. Remarkably, the State Department is finally telling us the TRUTH about the lie. You just have to keep the negatives and the double negatives straight. Their obfuscation lies in their leaving unsaid the second half of the confession.

Properly articulated, what State is saying goes like this: We NEVER concluded that the attack that killed Ambassador Stevens was a protest gone awry, and when we told you that we DID conclude that, we were lying to you.

The question then becomes: what was the lie intended to cover up? Security lapses aren't a big enough issue to justify all this. Cover for that would have been easily enough accomplished by sacrificeing some low level security people. No. This was bigger. Much bigger. Big enough for the President and the Sec State to lie to the American people, and stick with it for a week. It bought time.

I still say they knew about the demonstrations beforehand, were going to link them to American evangelicals via the Florida minister, and cap it with Obama's speech at the UN for some foreign policy bump before the debates. But alqueda's attack out of the blue messed it all up. Sure it's nutsy stuff, but look at their laughable reactions to Obama's debate fiasco. He thought he won. Look at the cockamamie campaign they are running. It's outrageous enough to be true.

In places like that, how can anyone tell a apart a riot, a wedding, a grand opening sale at Achmed's, a revolution, a counter-revolution, Friday prayers, a terrorist attack, or the shutting-down of a girl's school?

I remember saying when the "video explanation" for the attack on our embassy in Libya first came out it would be looked back upon in the same way we look back on the "Koran being flushed down the toilet in Gitmo" story - as phony as a three dollar bill. We all know that both Hillary and Øbama are shameless phonies and liars so the phony storyline they came up with was as predictable as rain.
Now I know what Rush means when he says he knows these people better than they know themselves. These people are self-deluded and so predictable. Øbama has become a caricature of himself as pResident, the same way Keith Olbermann became a caricature of himself as a newsman on MSNBC. Both Øbama and Keith are infantile. Keith was fired from his job. Let's do the same for Øbama this November.

Missing in all the Libya lies and noise is the question:

WHAT were Amb Stevens and retired SEALS (now private contractors to US) doing in Benghazi?

I believe the answer was that they were trying to negotiate for the return of the arms that Obama gave the Libyan rebels during the overthrow of Khadaffi. These arms are now in A-Q and other terrorists' hands.

Barry's Libyan Fast & Furious Caper.
Further, I strongly suspect that the weapons used to kill the 4 Americans were made in the USA.

Find proof of that, and then get out the pitchforks and tar and feathers for Choom Boy.

I am so grateful for Rep. Darrell Issa, R-California for bringing things out of the darkness into the light. He takes seriously the responsibility of oversight of the executive branch and the balancing of powers.
Too many of our politicians only concern themselves with retaining their power and influence by winning their next election. Issa is actually applying his power and influence on behalf of the people who elected him. I also send a big thank you to his district in California for sending a man such as this at this critical time in history.
#7 thanks for making me laugh this morning while reading about such a serious topic.

I liked Rep. Gowdy's parsing of the phrase "in fact" -- used to blithely by "Dr." Rice. Said he didn't know what it meant in diplomatic circles, but in the law, "in fact" means it is a fact, and it's not subject to equivocation.

She is another Affirmative Action charlatan, in way over her head.

Obama/Jarret's Achilles heel is that they thought they could superimpose the Chicago way on the national stage. In Chicago there is NO opposition anywhere to check the corruption and the criminal activity embedded in the local government. President Kardashian is just naive, stupid, and arrogant enough to believe he could co-op the entire federal bureaucracy to lie down and bend to his will because, you know, he's the "One".

There is a method to his madness. Yes it is madness. Obama has been showing more of his Muslim side lately. His speech to the United Nations was a clear indication of his thinking. "The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam." Pretty clear to me.

He then took the picture of the Christian YouTube video producer, in chains and under guard, and waved it at the Muslim world in solidarity. He also had a bloated Hillary appear on Arabic TV to make a groveling apology to the Muslim masses.

This may get interesting. Americans are no longer lions in their eyes. We're in retreat and our dhimmitude is becoming apparent.

This is a mutiny by part of the career bureaucracy. Political concerns trumped security concerns and one of their own- a career diplomat- got assassinated as a result. A Big Lie was then told to protect Obama's claims about Al Qaeda being a spent force. A lot of the career types at State and across the rest of the intelligence community are now refusing to go along with that lie for both professional and personal reasons. Like would you be willing to ever accept foreign assignment again with these fools supposedly covering your back?

As was noted above. Washington DC isn't Chicago where Democrat hacks rule in perpetuity. There is only so much blame the politicians can lay on the bureaucracy.

Ok, Tin foil hat time...

I have been wondering if the original plan was hatched with the cooperation of the leaders of the Libyan faction Zippy wants to control the country. The plan being to allow an attack on the consulate which was supposed to result in the capture of the ambassador and his aides. Then Zippy would act all macho and do something dramatic in cooperation with said Libyan leaders to gain the release of the hostages. Presto! Obama gets a big foriegn policy success just in time for the election and the Libyan faction he favors demonstrate they are in control and gain power, prestige, and probably aid money. The press would run with stories of the Obama's strong and brilliant foriegn policy skills all the way to the election. But the plan fell apart when A.Q. infiltrated the attackers and either deliberatly killed our guys or the off duty seals who weren't part of the script made it into a real fight that ended in with their deaths. As usual, Zippy had a scapegoat ready in the form of the film, which had been around for months. This would explain why Zippy wasn't even remotely concerned when first informed of the attack and why they went straight to the film excuse when things went bad. Ambassador Stevens was just a pawn.

Russia set out a series of tough conditions on Sunday night for agreeing a diplomatic solution to the crisis over its annexation of Crimea, demanding that the US and its European partners accept its proposal that ethnic Russian regions of eastern and southern Ukraine be given extensive autonomous powers independent of Kiev. Emergency talks between Sergei Lavrov, Russia´s foreign minister, and John Kerry, the US secretary of state, got under way at the Russian ambassador´s residence in Paris after a day in which tensions over Ukraine deepened appreciably. Neither man made any substantive comment before the talks began. Suggesting it

The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest rulers and a close ally of Britain, will this week oversee his country’s transition to a system of Islamic law with punishments that include flogging, the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death. The 67-year-old absolute monarch declared last year that he wanted to introduce a full sharia system in his oil-rich nation and warned critics who took to social media sites to complain that they could be prosecuted using the new laws. The decision to introduce sharia and reintroduce the death penalty has been condemned by NGOs and legal rights

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country.

MOSCOW - President Vladimir Putin on Friday said Russia´s takeover of Crimea showed off its military prowess, as his defence minister reported that the Russian flag was now flying over all military sites on the Black Sea peninsula. In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War. "The recent events in Crimea were a serious test," Putin was shown on state television as saying in an echoing

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity. The president’s speech – the format Mr. Obama has favored for delivering big messages in foreign places – came at the end of a day during which the American leader visited for the first time two pillars of trans-Atlantic relations: NATO headquarters and

BRUSSELS — President Obama said Wednesday that Europe and the United States now face “a moment of testing” that challenges their unity and the international order they have worked for generations to build. In a speech Wednesday evening at the Palais des Beaux-Arts in this Belgian capital, Obama suggested that the current standoff with Russia over its incursion into Ukraine is part of a more fundamental struggle between democratic ideals and “an older, more traditional view of power.” He warned against “complacency” in the face of what he called Russia’s violations of international law in taking over Crimea. “If we

WASHINGTON — While President Obama insisted again on Tuesday that the West would not recognize the annexation of Crimea, officials in the United States and Europe have privately concluded that Crimea is lost and that the real challenge is stopping Russia from further destabilizing Ukraine. After meeting with allies in Europe and suspending Russia from the Group of 8, Mr. Obama indicated no plans for additional sanctions unless Russia’s president, Vladimir V. Putin, makes another provocative move. Every reference to further action against Russia during a 40-minute news conference in The Hague came with conditional phrases like “if the situation

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Imagine if a former Republican presidential candidate and U.S. senator had called a current Republican president a delusional liar whose programs are wasteful. Would the mainstream media not be all over the story? Such a person would be interviewed at length by Wolf Blitzer on CNN as well as made the rounds of the morning talk shows and the Sunday news programs as well. The media buzz would be red hot on this topic for days extending into weeks. Well, there is such a person but because he is a Democrat saying these things about President Obama, we can expect

Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

A "vast majority" of Mitt Romney donors, establishment pooh-bahs, and an anti-conservative consultant who is the epitome of permanent political class want former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush to run for president in 2016. Bush was in Las Vegas this week meeting with Sheldon Adelson, and, according to the Post, "many if not most of 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney’s major donors are reaching out to Bush and his confidants with phone calls, e-mails and invitations to meet." One bundler even said that a "vast majority” of "Romney’s top 100 donors would back Bush." The Post also noted that in the meantime "Bush’s

I have no objections to Jeb Bush running for president. He obviously has a wide appeal as a potential candidate. (Snip) His support of Common Core, however, will also find many who are in the conservative ranks objecting, since they fear that Common Core represents educational centralism and having the government ram federal standards down their throats. What I do object to is that Bush is already being heralded as the obvious candidate, the man to whom the big money must and will flow. As the Washington Post reports: Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Ronan Farrow’s MSNBC talk show is facing cancellation amid poor ratings, sources exclusively tell Confidenti@l.Farrow, 28 — the opinionated, blue-eyed son of actress Mia Farrow and either Woody Allen or Frank Sinatra (even Farrow’s not sure which) — has been a disaster for MSNBC. The channel took the frequent cable-show guest and handed him his own program, “Ronan Farrow Daily,” which premiered in late February.The theory was that Farrow, a Rhodes scholar who graduated college when he was 15 and went on to score degrees from Yale and Oxford, would bring his 245,000 Twitter followers with him to television

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

YOKOHAMA, Japan — Climate change is already having sweeping effects on every continent and throughout the world’s oceans, scientists reported Monday, and they warned that the problem is likely to grow substantially worse unless greenhouse emissions are brought under control. The report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a United Nations group that periodically summarizes climate science, concluded that ice caps are melting, sea ice in the Arctic is collapsing, water supplies are coming under stress, heat waves and heavy rains are intensifying, coral reefs are dying, and fish and many other creatures are migrating toward the poles or

A National Labor Relations Board official has given the green light to Northwestern University football players to form a union. The March 26 decision by the NLRB´s Chicago regional director, Peter Sung Ohr, held that scholarship football players are "employees" for purposes of federal labor law. Ohr rejected the longstanding view of Northwestern and the National Collegiate Athletic Association that players are "student-athletes" rather than employees. While Ohr´s decision is hardly the final word on this issue, it does accelerate the legal and political battle against the NCAA and its century-old amateurism rules. Is Football Academic?

Washington — The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration on Monday finalized long-delayed rules that will require automakers to install back-up cameras in all vehicles by May 2018. The new rules set rear visibility standards that automakers will initially be able to meet only by installing cameras. At the same time, major automakers said Monday they are petitioning the Obama administration to let them end the use of side view mirrors if they install cameras that could perform the same task — a move that could improve fuel efficiency. (Snip) “We are committed to protecting the most vulnerable victims of backover

President Obama’s Department of Homeland Security caught then released 68,000 aliens who had previously been convicted of a crime, a new report from the Center for Immigration Studies shows. The report, provided to Breitbart News ahead of its late Sunday evening release, reviews internal Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) metrics to conclude that the Obama administration released 35 percent—or 68,000—convicted criminal aliens back into the U.S. general population when they could have been deported. (Snip) In response to these findings from CIS that follow up on his office’s report last week, Sessions said immigration law in America has essentially ceased to

Today sees the release of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change´s (IPCC) latest findings on the state of "global warming" and the news isn´t good. Here are some of the highlights: Giant malarial mosquitoes the size of crane flies may descend en masse and drain us of our blood so quickly with their powerful razor sharp probosces that we won´t even have time to be infected - we´ll be dead before we hit the floor; Bangladesh, Tuvalu, The Maldives and Florida will all be submerged; Four horsemen with skulls for faces, glowing red eyes and huge scythes will gallop across
