It is now obvious that the U.S. government's original story about the Benghazi consulate attack, delivered by its two heaviest hitters, the president and secretary of state, was false, and, more importantly, that it was intended to deceive. How can Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton outrun the scandal that now chases them, a scandal that makes Watergate look like cheating at tiddlywinks? As if "Fast and Furious" weren't enough, the administration now gives America "Slow and Spurious."
Comments: Does this mean that NBC will have to cover it?
The MSM will lie and cover up for Obama. The editorial in our local fish wrapper is a good example. Gives credit to Crowley for keeping Romney under control. Makes snide remarks about Romney and Obama's remarks about the Libya attack. In all it is a puking bit of butt kissing lies.
America has a short attention span. It's better to take your lumps and move on. These idiots kept their story alive only to justify cutting the military and saying all we need is special forces units. Pure craziness.
Once Mitt Romney becomes President the media will become studious critics of the government.

Just watched Fox & Friends comparison clips of Emperor Zero taking credit for being tough war hero pResident in speeches a week apart where in the early one he mentions al qaida on the run, and the one yesterday he doesn't.
What a fraud. And the people behind him, cheering his every utterance. Every time, I wonder if they actually hear what he's saying.... or, like Pavlov dogs, they respond JUST BECAUSE he's saying - something. Anything. Doesn't matter what.
We conservatives see Romney's faults, and we accept the fact he's not perfect, hoping we can work him to the right a little more after the election (depends on all our congressional races, folks). We always see reality squarely and deal with it as necessary.
These people behind Obama in his speeches - mostly college kids of course - whatever happened to youthful rebellion against authority? He has so convinced them that HE is the counter-authority. Well, he IS one of them, I suppose - perpetually immature, stuck at their age.
Candy Crowley became the topic of discussion from the 2nd Presidential debate for people who watched it. I have never seen my son in law so animated when talking about politics as when he wanted to share his observations about that debate. He is just 30 years old and he was outraged that Crowley had interrupted Mitt Romney's point. I think this will backfire on the Obama minions, BIG TIME, as Dick Cheney would say.
Yeah, old Candy girl thought hitching herself to obit's wagon in the debate would lead to a major boost in her silly, useless career. All she's got is a colossal failure, just like what we got in obit. Awh, too bad, so sad.
The old sleight of hand of a magician or master mind-manipulator or natural born pathological liar and you have the man in the White House who wants us not to look in the real direction, The direction of big win by alQaeda both on the ground slaking their blood lust but the propaganda victory as they drive our national narrative with help of the CIC and our corrupt lamestream media-self important narcissists all.
While we are looking the other way and at obama's Libya lie (what is one more klie to him? His media idjits have his back.)al Qaeda is dancing in the streets, around bon fires and abusing the dead bodies of their recent kills--raping, looting and pillaging. ( How do they keep Bill Clinton away?)
Sad fact is that al Qaeda is winning a propaganda war and the obama admin is helping them and the lamesstream media is aiding and abetting. Money to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood so they can bomb the Nile dams of their neighbors? Sure was good move by the warrior valkyries (We came, we saw, he died Hillary, exulting at her kill as Ghaddafi was being object sodomized for sport by the tribal brutes.)
We do not understand them but their fellows educated in the West or by Old Ned himself DO understand us. They are winning the propaganda war and rioting to win concessions to change the world in other forms of Jihad.
Bottom line, it may be obama's Waterloo but for the wrong reason that it should be. He should be having to face the fact of his failure to protect the American people from propaganda and deceit of a group he nostalgically favors due mixing and melding with the more peaceful Indonesian Muslims of his youth?
What I want to know is why, during Tuesday's debate and AFTER Crowley skewered Axelrod on her own CNN program re: use of the word terrorism, Obama said (twice) "LOOK AT THE TRANSCRIPT", which Crowley just happened to have with her.........(.even though she later had to walk BACK the fact that Obama was using the word terror generically at the END of a Rose Garden address ) after which he hopped AF1 to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, something Crowley also neglected to pursue( though THAT was the question)...the damage was done, and apparently Crowley is being celebrated at CNN, another reason NOT to watch that network.
In addition to the military cuts mentioned at #5, the Harriburg Patriot News hid this story deep within, assigning it to a blurb position. The 54-word first paragraph is all one sentence. Awful writing.
'A federal appeals court Tuesday threw out the terrorism conviction of a high-profile former detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Salim Hamdan, a Yemeni who served as Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard and whose case led to a landmark 2006 Supreme Court ruling striking down the Bush administation's first version of military commissions.' ....'The decision delivered a blow to the military commissions system, reducing the chances that many other detainees at Guantanamo will receive trials.'
I truly hope that this is Obama's swan song -- hope he is out of here -- hope we never have to listen to him again -- ever. Maybe he will go back to "where ever" he was born and stay there. God Bless America!!!. God give us our great country back, please.
What is so pathetic about Obama and his lies is that he was oh so rleived to have Candy jumpoed to is assistance about when he described this attack as an act of terror but explain to me Obama and Candy - what about Secy Rice a week later saying on 5 news shows that it was spontaneous?
#14, perfect. Hasn't the WH now been allegedly given the name of the terrorist who assassinated Stevens? This is a complete wag the dog: Obama comes walking forward in the debate, all offended about politicizing Steven's death and sternly tells the nation how he won't stop until those responsible are found. What amazing timing that just after his speech, the terrorist or useful idiot has been named. I suspect the Seals are already in place for a weekend attack. Perhaps he'll be buried at sea so he won't become a martyr. All of this just in time for the final debate.
The writer does a pretty good job until the end when he fizzles before saying just what is wrong with the Arab Spring and why the president and SoS were trying to protect its image. For that we'll have to go here:
On the strategic level, this administration has been a complete disaster. Obama has moved decisively against allies, failed to complete a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq (a grave and inexcusable mistake), and joined the naïve rush to endorse the various “Arab Spring” revolts and the resulting Islamist governments. As we pull out of Afghanistan, Obama’s Middle East legacy will be a hostile Egypt, Iran substantially closer to a nuclear bomb, Syria in chaos, Iraq slipping into neutrality (at best), portions of Libya under jihadist control, Afghanistan under renewed Taliban assault, and America as despised as it’s ever been, with the black flag of jihad hoisted over embassy after embassy. Oh, but we’ll have drones orbiting overhead, launching the occasional pinprick strike. Do you feel more secure?
I wish some investigative reporter would backtrack on the "Arab Spring". Was this started by some of Captain Zero's players to get all these countries under the Muslim Brotherhood control? The guy who won over Christine McDonnell for Senate was in Kenya some years back and was trying to set up an uprising of the youth there until he was chased out of the country. Code Pink (Medea Benjamin) was a supporter along with some others flew in to support the removal of Gadaffi and Murbarak--Andrew Breitbart confronted her on a plane trip from the East to California.

#26; Yes. And with the full support of the people with COEXIST bumper stickers.
As furious as I am about the Candy Crowley cover for Obama, I wonder if it will help Romney. If America was level headed and clear thinking, maybe. Jimmy Kimmel did a piece the night before the debate and asked people who they thought won and why. The debate hadn't even taken place yet and the people they interviewed claimed to have seen it and what impressed them most about it. I cry for our country when I think about this younger generation who worships the ground this guy walks on because they think every thing is going to be free for them.
The most important aspect of this scandal is not being reported by anyone: The willingness of Obama, Clinton, et al, to trash the first amendment and free speech before the entire world. What precedent has that set? Furthermore, they were more than willing to ruin the life of an American citizen. That's disgusting.
The rhetorical and obvious question that is asked in this article is an easy one to answer. How will this travesty of incompetence, stupidity, and venality (playing politics with peoples lives)avoid being the fabled albatross around obama's neck? Easy! It will be shunted aside by the FDM (Federally Directed Media) thus becoming a non-story. It is happening already and according to the FDM, it pales in importance when compared to KILLING BIG BIRD.
They lie because the truth about aspects of 0bama's MENA policy. Think of a MENA Fast and Furious where instead of weapons going to the Sinaloa cartel, they are going to Al Qaeda.
The question is whether Ambassador Stevens was set up to be killed, was part of a plot to free the blind sheikh or was part of a botched kidnapping plot to make 0bama look good just before the election.
Don't question the lack of truth, the deception, lies and sleight of hand. It's all part of the process and they obviously have enough people snowballed that they think they can steal another election. It's not just Obama, he's a wooden dummy and has many people pulling his strings. The only thing that will bring truth back to the table will be a merciless housecleaning of government or full-scale revolution. Joseph Goebbels proved that these deception tactics work all too well and are very hard to fight through peaceful means because half of the population is delusional and is all too willing to be led to the slaughterhouse on the promise of another free meal. Fair play and appeasement will not save us but the 2nd amendment will.
The Coptic Christian that placed "Innocence of Muslims" in YouTube is still in Federal Prison in Los Angeles. The Pakistani doctor that gave proof of Osama for Obama is in prison too.
Obama apologized six times for the video in front of our enemies at the UN General Assembly on September 24. Monica's Boyfriend's Wife purchased TV commercials of Herself and Obama in Pakistan.
The US Embassy in Cairo apologized for the video before they were attacked on September 11, 2012. The mob was directed by Mohammed al-Zawahiri, the brother of the al-Quaida leader, and they flew the Black Colors of al-Quaidain our embassy.
Having a Muslim-educated president did not help us, did it?
I feel sorry for Seal Team Six and all the other Special Operations personnel who are being set up for a dangerous mission, probably this weekend, just so Øbama can look tough on foreign policy in Monday night's debate. He will send them on this mission regardless of the intelligence evaluation of the situation. He claims that our poor Libyan intelligence was responsible for the surprise attack in the first place and will now launch his "Wag the Dog" campaign video based upon the intelligence from the same groups.
It's really starting to look like this was all just a setup to deliver weapons to people in a way that would not otherwise be allowed. Is it possible this Administration would sacrifice American lives and an ambassador to accomplish such a thing?
Open hiring practices: that's what America needs, as well as this painfully awaited election. We need to know the hiring practices of all the unionized networks and newspapers. Showing big taxing government favoritism, regardless of whether or not they are already Communists, is the way any applicant qualifies. What are the tests they give to get into the world of Josef Geobbels? Hiring practices disclosure is a next big step in our New Media world of cleaning Old Media house, and eliminating criminal broadcasters, those who approve of anything socialist. So called "news people" stay in office forever, as long as they tow the Communist Party Line, or it's easily disguisable equivalent, like the soft Party Line, the way Marxist teachers throughout America disable thinking, otherwise healthy kids. Remember, for all time, one of the last new projects from Andrew Breitbart before his sudden, mysterious death, was his declaration that he was beginning a BREITBART EDUCATION.COM inviting children and parents to submit secret classroom videos showing teachers all across America as they indoctrinate the kids with "cultural Marxism". This is part of the do or die housecleaning needed to remove 60 plus years of communist marxist damage.
"Now, I want to make sure I understand what you were telling me last week in the second debate. You said that you knew this was a terrorist attack on the day AFTER the killings took place. Correct?"
O - "Uhhhh... ahh.... yes, but first let me..."
Romney "Well. I hope you can understand my confusion here, because all I heard for the next two weeks was that these attacks were the result of a spontaneous mob action that was precipitated by anger to a YouTube video. Susan Rice said it. Your Press Secretary said it. Hillary Clinton said it. The State Department ran ads on Pakistani TV that alluded to it. And, Mr. President, you said it on two talk shows as well as on the floor of the United Nations where your address mentioned the video now fewer than 6 times. What I want to know is this. How could you let the charade continue for two WEEKS after you claimed to have KNOWN this was a clear terrorist attack?"
Maybe this is Obie's waterloo, but still won't stop him from sending in the seals this weekend to Libya...just for the pure joy of covering his political behind ahead of his "debate" with Mitt next week.
The trial of the Fort Hood gunman, who is acting as his own attorney, took a surreal turn as the former Army psychiatrist accused of killing 13 in the November 2009 attack grilled witnesses -- including his former boss in the military and a fellow Muslim who spoke to him the day of the shooting.. After a short opening statement in which ex-Army Maj. Nidal Hasan called himself a "mujahedeen," admitted to the rampage and said "the dead bodies will show that war is an ugly thing," Hassan cross-examined prosecution witnesses, including retired Lt. Col Ben Kirk Phillips
The best mob story ever told does not involve Al Capone or Bugsy Segal or John Gotti. It involves a mobster few American have ever heard of, Greg Scarpa by name, and his not quite as lethal son, Greg Scarpa Jr., "Junior" going forward. One reason few people ever heard of Scarpa is that until his arrest in September 1992, he worked as a "Top Echelon Confidential Informant" under the protection of the FBI for the most of the thirty years prior. During that time, Scarpa murdered at least fifty people.
Bill Kristol, editor of The Weekly Standard and regular commentator at Fox news, has said the closing of U.S. embassies in 21 countries is a sign of weakness on the part of the U.S. and suggests capitulation to al-Qaeda. He may be partly right, but chances are that the closing of the embassies auger something far more ominous. The shutdowns may be a sign of an increased conflagration in the Middle East and Northern Africa. We may be looking at the onset of World War III.
The fight is on. A growing — and furious — fight between the conservative base of the Republican Party and its Establishment elites in Washington is rapidly taking shape. Senator Ted Cruz took to Sean Hannity’s television show Tuesday night and took on Karl Rove, who had immediately preceded him on the show. In response to Rove’s strategy (Rove compared the defunding strategy to the famous — and losing — Pickett’s Charge of the Battle of Gettysburg). Cruz immediately countered by saying that while he wasn’t a military strategist he was pretty sure 100% of battles
In a perverse bit of post-trial agitprop, ABC News somehow recruited the one woman of color on George Zimmerman´s "all white" jury and twisted her words to reflect the presumed editorial position of ABC News. In this clip from an exclusive Robin Roberts interview which has played just about everywhere including CBS News, Roberts says to the juror, "Some people have said, point blank, ´George Zimmerman got away with murder.´ How do you respond to those people who say that?" In the edited video ABC floated about, "Maddy" answers unhesitatingly, "George Zimmerman got away with murder.
It should come as no surprise that some of the very worst rants about George Zimmerman’s acquittal are coming from an Ivy League professor. The competition is stiff, but will be hard-pressed to keep up with Anthea Butler, an associate professor of religious studies at the University of Pennsylvania. The Zimmerman verdict has caused Butler to conclude that God is “a white racist god with a problem” who “is carrying a gun and stalking young black men.” There are conclusions Butler could have reached short of equating her caricature of Zimmerman with God.
Toward the end of his closing statement on Thursday, Florida Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda posted a slide on a screen in a fifth-floor Seminole County courtroom. "Which Owner would be more inclined to yell for help?" read the banner on the top of the slide. The slide was divided in two. On the left was a photo of George Zimmerman´s Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun, and on the right was a can of Arizona Watermelon Fruit Juice Cocktail. Beneath the photo of the gun was the question, "Who followed?"
Perhaps I´m just a creepy-a** cracka´ who doesn´t get it. But it always seems that when it comes to standards, the left gives you two for the price of one. And the idea that white people "can´t" understand black folks -- a similar point to which was made in a recent article about the George Zimmerman trial -- is a good example. But before getting to that particular piece, I have a question: is the issue here that one race simply cannot understand another? Or is this really just restricted to white people?
1.The Sound of Wet Grass: Black Racists´ War on Black Women The Trayvon Martin-George Zimmerman case has come to trial this week and the best thing that´s been said about it is from Thomas Maguire: "I´m proud to say I live in a country where the show trials look more like an SNL [Saturday Night Live] skit." You probably won´t know that if your source of information about the trial is the mainstream media and if your lifestyle doesn´t permit you to sit in front of the TV for hours watching the trial.
It´s a miracle! A fascinating and compelling movie whose plot is driven by the protagonist´s fidelity to the Constitution. (In fact there were more mentions of the Constitution than any other movie I have ever seen.) You have never seen a movie like Copperhead, and you ought to take the opportunity to see it on a big screen if you live in one of the forty-some cities where it is opening today. But even if you don´t, it is available today via all on-demand platforms, which is a great strategy to reach the widely dispersed audience
This is what happens when the President of the United States is dragged into making foreign and defense policy decisions, instead of determining American interests and then making policy to suit. And it is what happens when the president fails to make a clear case for those policies not only to the American public, but also to his own cabinet. It had been understood that senior members of the Obama administration wanted to provide arms to Syrian rebel forces in opposition to the Assad regime.
Michelle Obama has been capitalizing on her status as a descendant of slaves. Her latest junket to Ireland shows she is definitely enjoying the 21st-century benefits of the transatlantic slave trade her radical friends in Chicago refer to as "genocide" by white Americans. According to the First Couple´s pals, Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakhan, Rahm Emanuel, and Dr. Conrad W. Worrill of Northeastern University, white Americans should monetarily compensate black Americans for past slavery.
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not? Daniel Pipes: Don’t know about you, but I find this pre-emptive cringing unworthy of a great country, even humiliating.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
In an exclusive interview for The Grio, NBCUniversal’s African-American news and opinion website, Oprah Winfrey weighed in with her unvarnished thoughts on the killing of Trayvon Martin and the acquittal of George Zimmerman. Winfrey said that, in her mind, Martin’s murder and that of Emmett Till in 1955 – whose killers were also acquitted – were the “same thing.” However, she added that it is important to keep in mind how much race relations in America have progressed over the last half-century. In a clip of the interview which aired on NBC’s Today, Oprah told The Grio’s Chris
