A series of internal State Department emails obtained by Fox News shows some some of the initial assessments of last month's deadly consulate attack in Libya, including one email within hours of the attack that noted that the group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility. Ansar al Sharia has been declared by the State Department to be a an Al Qaeda-affiliated group. A member of the group suspected of participating in the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi has been arrested and is being held in Tunisia.
Greta seemed incredulous, even visibly shaken when reporting this story tonight. The four Americans who died were betrayed by their leaders in the White House, State Department etc. Obama, Hillary, Jarett, Axelrod, Panetta, and yes even Petreaus -- they all must go. This is a travesty of the highest order. Benghazi, not Bin Laden will be the legacy of the Obama Administration, and ends Hillary's hopes for 2016.
Let's see if the MSM covers it.
God Bless the leaker of these emails - raw courage!
Emails report a well organized and heavily armed al-Qaeda attack on our shamefully unprotected facilities. However, the messages do not show the emotional trauma that would surface days later when the terrorists learned that they weren't listed in the credits of the anti-Mohammed video. This videographer's oversight caused post-terrorism stress syndrome, or PTTS, in possibly one of the attackers. The diagnosis of PTTS by the WH allowed Obama and his ilk to blame the assault on the video. So, it only seems like Obama lied about the video causing the assault.
And yet, they thought that LYING about the cause was the "brilliant" thing to do. For HOURS the folks in this administration WATCHED the MASSACRE on drone video feeds - and DID NOTHING!
They setup Stevens for something and it went knickers-up. Then they scrambled to COVER IT UP. All except for Barry - he had to sleep and then catch a flight for Vegas where he had heavy campaign obligations that were, as the "Mouth Of Saurons" of the WH said, "Were planned far ahead and could not be changed."
Treason. This prezdint and most all of the administration and the State Controlled Lapdog Media are ALL guilty and/or complicit of TREASON. If Romney WINS he had better place someone like Mark Levin in the U.S. Attorney General's office. That is THE ONLY WAY to bring these criminals to justice.
So the next question is, why was there a drone conveniently overhead recording what was going on? We were get emails in real time that it was an orchestrated attack and did nothing! Why?
There are reports out there that a white house source said it was a planned kidnapping of the Ambassador ( who was told to stay in Benghazi) by the administration-an agreement with the Muslim Brotherhood. We would then trade him for the blind sheik. Obama's October Surprise to win the election! But it went bad. 6 months ago I would never believe such a story. But today? This administration is capable of anything in it's drive to win. There is no other explanation that we didn't send it fighter jets, Marines and everything else we had there to break it up. 7 hours we allowed our people to fight for their lives and sat on our hands. Heads need to roll.
If God help us Obama wins he WILL be impeached over this. And he should go to prison for treason along with EVERY person in his administration that was complicit. That wold be Jarrett, Axelrod, Hilary, (and Huma perhaps) and anyone in the Pentagon who knew and did nothing.
The Dems better put that in the equation when voting. Impeachment will be the last nail in our coffin as a nation when we should be focused on the economy and terrorism. We'll be left with crazy Joe.
Can you imagine the heartbreak of the victims' families knowing the the President, VP, Secretary of State ,etc., sat and watched while your loved one died and did nothing. How cold and heartless are these so called leaders anyway? Death is devastating enough, but this is beyond anything the families should be dealing with at this time.

Mike Baker, an ex-super-secret CIA agent who appears on Fox News frequently, said a week ago that there were bombshells on this story that would be made public before the election. It has to be this - and possibly more in the next two weeks.
My questions: 1. Why this Ambassador? 2. Just happened to be a drone overhead - is this routine? Do all our Middle East embassies have drones overhead? Are they armed? Or video feeds only? 3. Whose idea was it to blame the idiotic video? 4. HAS ANYONE ACTUALLY SEEN THIS VIDEO? 5. Why is the video maker STILL IN JAIL? 6. Was he part of this scam plan?
If you read “The real reason behind Benghazigate” in thread no. 708462 — below the Must Reads — you will begin to see how the events are tightly linked together. According to author Frank Gaffney, Obama was gun-walking on a massive scale with the effect being to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well.
If that is not TREASON punishable by hanging, then nothing is.
#22, that report is correct, and has been public for some time now. They are called the February 17th Martyrs' Brigade, after an event in 2006 in which thousands of Benghazians attacked the Italian Consulate and burned it. The cause for the attack? An Italian named Calderoli had defended the free speech of the West.
In the ensuing battle, 11 of the terrorist attackers were killed by Libyan forces. The Feb. 17th Martyrs' Brigade commemorates those terrorists. And our State Dept. hired them to defend our consulate.
These emails are labeled SBU - Sensitive But Unclassified. Seems to me it'd be tough to prosecute someone for "leaking" unclassified emails. If Gen. Petraus stays on at CIA under Pres. Romney, that's a strong indication of who released the emails.
That bovine Hillary waddling out behind Obama in the Rose Garden knowing full well the whole truth about this, Hillary and Obama make me sick what awful lowlife people they are. They knew, those people could have been saved if only they had given the word for a rescue but they made up a lie.
The Regime claims that the Benghazi attack was a follow-on to the riots in Egypt. It still claims that the riots in Egypt were inspired by the YouTube video. Demonstrators, especially in the Middle East, usually hold up signs and banners detailing their grievances. Were there documented photos or videos showing these to provide proof that the Cairo protests on September 11, before the Benghazi attack started, were about the YouTube video? There must have been press on scene to capture this evidence. Or was this like the false accusations of Tea Party protesters spitting on Rep. Emanuel Cleaver? If proof exists, show us. If you can't, then perhaps this is yet another lie.
HAIFA, Israel – Bird-brained terrorists in Lebanon have taken a suspected Israeli spy into custody – an eagle that was outfitted with a transmitter that allowed conservationists to study the raptor’s migratory patterns. In the latest case of Muslim militants seeing a secret agent with wings and a beak, Iranian-backed Hezbollah forces are keeping the eagle under lock and key after it was found by hunters near the town of Ashkout, northeast of Beirut. The bird had a ring around its leg that bore the name ‘Tel Aviv University,’ written in English, as well as a receiver device attached, according to
Wal-Mart (WMT) stores in Springhill and Mansfield, La., saw a stampede and a shelf-clearing rush Saturday after a computer glitch for food stamp recipients led to benefit cards allowing unlimited purchases. Police were called as entire shelves were being cleared out, until the glitch was fixed and low-income residents using the cards were no longer allowed to make purchases.

Col. Bud Day, an Air Force fighter pilot who was shot down in the Vietnam War, imprisoned with John McCain in the notorious “Hanoi Hilton,” and defiantly endured more than five years of brutality without divulging sensitive information to his captors, earning him the Medal of Honor, died on Saturday in Shalimar, Fla. He was 88. His death was announced by his wife, Doris. Colonel Day was among America’s most highly decorated servicemen, having received nearly 70 medals and awards,
The 22 children who became ill Thursday after eating lunch at a San Diego school cafeteria made themselves sick on purpose as part of a game, school officials confirmed on Friday. According to San Diego Unified School District spokesman Jack Brandais, a group of students at Audubon Elementary School in the Lomita area were playing a game of “dare” in the cafeteria, urging one another to put different ingredients into their milk to see who could keep the milk down without vomiting. Brandais said the ingredients included hot sauce, salt, pepper, carrots and other vegetables being served at lunch.
Reuters reports Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano will resign today: The Los Angeles Times has more: Janet Napolitano, the U.S. secretary of Homeland Security and former governor of Arizona, is being named as the next president of the University of California system, in an unusual choice that brings a national-level politician to a position usually held by an academic. Her appointment also means the 10-campus system will be headed by a woman for the first time in its 145-year history.
HGTV viewers are expressing outrage after the network suggested they use American flags as table cloths for Fourth of July celebrations, calling offensive, un-American and an insult to the American military. “Using an American flag as a table cloth dishonors all Americans who love Old Glory – especially those who gave their lives defending it,” one viewer wrote. “No one dies for a table cloth.”
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. — A Massachusetts police official say the brothers suspected of bombing the Boston Marathon before having shootouts with authorities didn´t have gun permits. Cambridge Police Commissioner Robert Haas tells The Associated Press in an interview Sunday that neither Tamerlan Tsarnaev (tsahr-NEYE´-ehv) nor his brother Dzhokhar had permission to carry firearms. He says it´s unclear whether either ever applied and the applications aren´t considered public records.
Facing a surging homicide rate and several headline-grabbing murders, Chicago’s top cop is taking aim at lobbyists who he says prevent politicians from implementing more gun control measures. Appearing on a local Windy City Sunday morning talk show on the radio station WLSAM, Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said special interests that lobby politicians to influence their opinion on gun control are the real problem. “If there was a special interest influencing police work, I believe that would be called corruption,” McCarthy said.
DEVELOPING: A five-year-old boy who was being held hostage in an underground bunker in Alabama for nearly a week has been released, a law enforcement source, citing reports, told Fox News. Authorities say 65-year-old Jimmy Lee Dykes shot and killed a bus driver last week in Midland City and then abducted the boy. Dykes is now dead, the source says, and it is unclear what the boy´s current condition is.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday lashed out over the claim that the administration misled Americans about the nature of the Libya terror attack by asserting that it was the result of a protest, raising her voice during a Senate hearing and asking: "What difference, at this point, does it make?" Clinton, in what may be her final set of testimony as secretary, pointedly challenged Republican Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson when he claimed the department could have "easily" determined what happened that night by interviewing staffers who were evacuated.
Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington, D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ — and one national news publication called him the “Second Coming.” The poster, which does not have the official endorsement of the White House, features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, “Prophecy Fulfilled.”
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- Less than two months after being acquitted on charges of endangering his 2-day-old son and harassing nurses who attempted to stop him from taking the baby outside Northern Westchester Hospital, Douglas Kennedy is suing the hospital, two nurses and one of their husbands. The 44-page lawsuit, filed Friday in state Supreme Court in Westchester County, names maternity ward nurses Cari Luciano and Anna Lane as defendants, along with Cari Luciano´s husband, Steve Luciano. It alleges assault, intentional infliction of emotional distress, defamation, malicious prosecution and breach of confidentiality and seeks unspecified damages. Source corrected by staff.
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has high praise for potential 2016 contenders Vice President Joe Biden and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. “I think Joe Biden will go down in history as one of the best vice presidents ever, and he has been with me, at my side, in every tough decision that I’ve made,” Obama told MSNBC in an interview Thursday held at American University. “Hillary, I think, will go down in history as one of the finest secretaries of state we’ve ever had, and helped to transition us away from a deep hole that we were in,
