Obama team 'to blame for
Benghazi embassy deaths'

Independent [UK], by David Usborne

Original Article

Posted By:Photoonist, 10/10/2012 10:44:04 PM

At a hearing on Capitol Hill Republicans yesterday sought to eviscerate the Obama administration over its handling of the assault on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, saying officials failed to heed security warnings and dissembled in their public statements in its aftermath. Opening the politically charged session, Congressman Darrel Issa said warnings from US personnel in Libya about the worsening security situation were ignored. "They repeatedly warned Washington officials about the dangerous situation in

Comments:
The leftist Independent can drop the quotation marks. They themselves state that THEY had evidence that the State Dept. knew of the threat and did nothing. And it's not politically charged either. The disgusting Democrats are politically stonewalling to protect their dishonorable president and his Sec. of State while honorable people have died because of them.

We all make bad calls we wish we could take back. It is essential to learn from those and improve. This series of attacks on the embassy and the reduction in security suggest that the bad call was made at the cabinet level or possibly higher. We need Obama out of office.

No. Islamic scum killed the diplomatic mission in contravention of ancient customs that safeguard peaceful foreign envoys.
Obama not only made this possible; he encouraged it by his willful negligence.
Go away, you scrofulous little man!

Hillary has connived herself into a position where she will be compelled to top her own performance telling the story about dodging bullets on the tarmac.

Those bullets were totally imaginary, this time she will be in a game of dodge ball with the ball throwers forming a circle around her and hurling accusations that are quite real.

William Safire's appraisal of Hillary being a congenital liar is/was 100% accurate.

The border deaths, i.e. agents and Mexican innocents and the embassy victims in Benghazi and the drone victims are on obama's hands. Their blood colors his watch on the White House wall.....

hillary will NEVER resign. Her pervert husband was impeached and still stayed the course. They don't play by the rules -- BUT -- they "expect" everyone else to.

I hope everyone recalls how the Democrats and the Old Media CRUCIFIED the honorable and patriotic Donald Rumsfeld .... demanding that he be fired for allowing forceful questioning of terrorists.

What Hillary and Obama have done here, worsened by their feeble attempts to cover it all up, is a hundred times worse than any Rumsfeld decision. Hillary Clinton, as a matter of fact, was one of the loudest voices calling for Donald's resignation.

Obama is probably terrified he will be left standing alone here.

Well, I can assume not putting extra security into Benghazi wasn't because of the cost, as this administration spends like drunken sailors, and this wouldn't have cost that much, comparatively speaking. So, I wonder what the real reason was.

Exactly #11 - so did Hillary receive any intel briefings prior to September 11, and if so, did she ignore them? Or if she did not receive any briefs, why not? I wonder what role her senior special assistant Huma Abedin played in all this? Were these intel briefs filtered through Huma before reaching Hillary?

Rep Kelly dropped your point right in Kennedy's lap, #14. He recalled the champaign receptions going on in other embassies at the same time security requests were being denied to Ambassador Stevens.

Right now I can't decide who's more to blame, that stupid cow Hillary or her lazy, ignorant boss, Obama. Her celebrated previous experience as "co-president" was her claim to executive ability and insider knowledge. She's got no excuse.
He is a clear muslim sympathizer who puts America's interests below everything up to and including his wife's vacation schedule... and he holding the tiller.

There's a flip side to this, you know.

No one at that posting had to go to that posting. One can refuse a posting.

Anyone Obama sent is already so deep in the Crazy Leftist Camp that it's highly likely they only thought they understood the risks, but in reality they probably had a lot of that "rainbow in their eyes" attitude.

Plus, they were free to skeedaddle. If it gets that serious, get on a plane with your staff and beat feet since Hillary and Obama wanted to make you a sacrifice for the good of the State.

This whole episode takes two to tango

This article is from the Independent in the UK. Glad someone is covering it, cause it sure as heck isn't our media that is completely enraged about this. Can you imagine if a Republican was at the helm - The media would be going crazy. This is the second tragedy in this whole story. The media turns their collective head on anything that could harm their hero, but cares nothing about the harm to the country and our citizens who died.

Was a crime knowingly, covertly committed by one or many? Was the cover up protracted
to make it even more obvious that a crime was committed? It is apparent now, the premeditated murder of our ambassadoe at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was an act of terrorism and not caused by spontaneous reaction to a barely seen video.
Members of the administration and Obama apparently fabricated a story about the video being the cause. Let's face it, SOMEone made it up, many followed the spin.
In fact, many days AFTER facts of the horrific event were revealed, Obama REPEATED the misreprentation to the world during his own U.N. speech! The question IS:
how many subsequent riots were a result of this presidential subterfuge? And since the ensuing worldwide riots resulted in multiple deaths, are the contributors of this fabricated scenario guilty of a crime?
(Worse news, is the obvious DemRepub Rule: nobody gets punished.....ever)

I am mad as well that Kennedy and Lamb carried the water for Shrill and Obomination yesterday. If they had a clue at all, they have to know what is going on and owe it to the American people to tell the truth. Their loyalty should be to the people not the pols!

Here's an interesting article from Kevin DuJan at HillBuzz.org. He postulates that the Benghazi attack was an Obama October Surprise gone bad. Obama was supposed to rescue a kidnapped Ambassador through his marvelous negotiating skills. Kevin manages to explain the facts and puzzling Administration and State Department behavior in a much more coherent way than anything else I've seen. You all might find it interesting.

If the voters would just wake up, they would figure out that Obnama is also to blame for destroying this country. How ANYONE can believe he is a good leader is beyond conprehension. Wake up people and realize he is destroying our freedoms, out economy, even our lives. Wake up and vote him out of this wonderful office of Presidency!

The least we can do is stand this meager post that we've been assigned and demand that this administration speak the truth to the people it's supposed to serve. This was never about a video. It was never spontaneous. This was terror. And I want to know why we were lied to.

We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.

The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.

Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political

A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.

Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama.

Thirty-nine percent of voters so far identified themselves as Democrats, compared to 30 percent calling themselves Republican.

As expected, Republican candidate for President, Mitt Romney, won West Virginia’s five electoral votes in Tuesday’s General Election over President Barack Obama. National media outlets called the race in West Virginia shortly after polls closed at 7:30 p.m. President Obama’s fate in West Virginia has never been in question, as he garnered just 60 percent of the democratic vote in the May primary. The other 40 percent of that vote went to Texas federal inmate Keith Judd, who was placed on the ballot in West Virginia.

Early exit polls show Election Day voters are slightly more Republican than in 2008 and broadly concerned about the state of the U.S. economy. Six in 10 voters said the economy is their top issue according to the poll, which was released by The Associated Press and conducted on behalf of a consortium of media companies. Less than a quarter of voters said their families were better off than four years ago — a point seized on by many Republicans as the results leaked out.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators.

Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
