CBS Busts Obama--and Itself
--in Benghazi Cover-Up

Breitbart's Big Journalism, by Joel B. Pollack

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 10/25/2012 7:21:44 AM

CBS News has released a clip of an interview by Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes on Sep. 12 with President Barack Obama that indicates Obama knew the assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a premeditated terror attack--and suggests the White House later deceived the public by blaming protests against an anti-Islam video. CBS chose not to air the clip for over a month--but did air Obama’s attack on Romney that same night.Obama told Kroft that the attack in Benghazi was different from the violent protest at the U.S. embassy in Cairo: "You're right that this is not a situation that was

I got the 404 message too. Here's a better link (hopefully), tiny version: http://tinyurl.com/9rpa4dt

But I'd venture that they didn't recognize what they had. Because if they did, and they deliberately left it on the cutting room floor - for ''online only'' purposes - then they made themselves complicit in the cover-up that ensued.

My question to them at this point is: Did they decide this on their own? Or did Azzholerod intervene after the interview and lean on them to pull that clip out of the broadcast? If so, what threats did he use to accomplish that? (Or did he have to threaten, at all?)

SeeBS smells a loser, and they're distancing themselves. After all, at some point, this interview IN ITS ENTIRETY may be subpoenaed.

The online Special Report with Brett Baer last night was extremely interesting.

It's disturbing that CBS INTENTIONALY left that part out of the interview OUT. CBS has lost any teanie tiny bit of credibility that they had.

As Charles Krautheimer had said, "journalistic malpractice"

Second post because I hit submit by error the first time around.

After the election and we have a new POTUS we are going to have nonstop 'fodder" to prove how complicit all these MSM critters have been to prop up the punk from Chicago.

CBS destroyed Sarah Palin because she did not answer Katie's question about what she reads to their satisfaction. They destroyed Dan Quaylle because he misspelled a word, yet they cover up the most horrendous terrorists attacks against America in order to protect Obama and Hillary. There ought to be a law. Blood is on all their hands.

I cannot agree with an above post which suggests that CBS didn't know what they had and therefore left it on the cutting room floor. Remember .... this is the same CBS exposed by Bernie Goldberg' book, BIAS .... the same CBS which applauded and then attempted to cover up for Dan Rather.

They KNEW. So did the other collaborating propagandists of Old Media, who have been carefully trained to bend over and obey their Master in the White House and his handlers.
.... CBS and the others have jumped into the sacrificial fire, and I can't imagine why ANYone would ever believe ANYthing they profess in the future.

IMO this is more serious than a simple cover-up. Catherine Herridge's report yesterday describes something akin to Jimmah Carter's helicopters in the sand. It's 1980 all over again.

Those sickening interviews Steve Krock have conducted with Obama on CBS/sixty minutes, remind of neigborhood elderly people having kids over for milk and cookies. Krock: "is it tough getting all that fan mail-where do you put it?" ha ha ha ha ha.

Lara Logan should go work for a network that doesn't have a reputation, worse than that of the National Enquirer. She's too good for them. Thanks for warning this administration they are asleep at the wheel/terrorism.

I said in 2008 that a small majority of American voters had elected a communist for President. Everything that has happened since just reinforces that. If you still can't bear to think that the MSM, Hollywood and 0bama administration are communists, read Whittaker Chambers book Witness - then you'll know what stakes we're playing for.

Wow, #13, I never thought of that before! No way would they have merely told the facts as they were known if 9/11 had happened on their watch. We would have been treated to a string of lies and cover-ups and probably arrests of hapless white men who own guns.

What this attack is called is a red herring: All y'all, including the media, are far too focused on what Obama called the attack instead of on the FACT that America was attacked and this Administration did nothing to save American lives in Bengazi.

Could this be deliberate? Get everyone sidetracked on what it was called and when, instead of THAT we attacked and to this day are doing nothing about it.

The better question is why have we done nothing about this attack? Could it be because of Obama and the Adminstration having Muslim sympathies? Could it be because American servicemen and other American can be sacrificed on the altar of liberalism until and, likely, after this election?

The emphasis is skewed.

CBS's problem is what to do with one of the best old-school reporters to come along in many, many years: Sharyl Attkisson. Her honesty and integrity won't be a party to a cover-up by her bosses. Hat tip to Mara Liasson for calling out CBS.

The national "news" organizations have crossed the line that separates misfeasance from malfeasance, IMO.

They think the 1st amendment gives them carte blanche to report or distort as they please, but I disagree.

They have clearly chosen sides in the national political debate and are ACTIVELY attempting to influence the outcome of elections. This has been the case for decades, but they have gotten sloppy and have abandoned even the pretense of objectivity.

Elections effect us all, for those in office have too much power to pass laws that ultimately affect our financial and legal well being. Since the "news" organizations are implicitly or explicitly trying to foist their choices upon the public through active disinformation campaigns, they are now an official cabal and guilty of conspiracy, IMO.

I truly believe RICO applies in this situation.

Good point, 13, about Attkisson. Recall when Attkissson got under the administration skin over F & F, a WH hack screamed profanity at her. When the matter was publicized, an obama agent accused Attkisson of whining.

To me, this article tells the whole story. After the interview they call CBS and tell them not to air that admission and CBS dutifully complies, of course. In their hubris, the admisnistration believed it could maipulate the press, even on a story of this magnitude. For the most part, the press is complying, but the coverup is so blatant that it's making that diffcult.

Obama and his media cabal conflated the Egypt and Benghazi attacks adopting their narrative about Muslim outrage at a video because they were ready to excuse the muslim habit of killing others who don't agree with them and because they were quite ready to sacrifice constitutional guarantees of freedom of speech to be replaced by Sharia law with penalties against any speech against Islam true or not. This is the attitude of the one more sympathetic to Islam than to America!

Since this happened on 60 minutes, I'm not the least surprised. They have been doing this for decades. They probably have a barn full of film clips that never reached the broadcast room. It's the old "give us your film and tell up what you want to portray." The cutters and splicers of film make a tea party look like an axe murder if they want to.

Like other posters, 60 minutes is not allowed on my TV.

But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

Obama in Jerusalem
New York Sun, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: Oblio- 3/16/2013 7:43:15 AM     Post Reply
When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

I hope I´m not too late to the fight.Last week, freshman Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) held an old-fashioned filibuster against the nomination of John Brennan to head the CIA.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue.

Let me obliterate a bit of confusion here: the Obama administration attempted to go to war with a rancher in Nevada. Let me amplify a little bit of truth: They tucked tail and have returned home. And let me add a bit of clarity: they had no choice! As the nation began to become familiar with the plight of the family of Cliven Bundy, many of us harkened back to another standoff in which the Federal government attempted to bully it´s outcome: Waco, Texas and the Branch Davidian massacre. It is telling that in the Nevada case the feds pulled out so

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM. Barack Obama won the presidency because in an election where the premium was on change, it mattered little

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

President Obama pulled a surprise move Monday at the White House’s Easter Prayer Breakfast when he selected Gene Robinson to lead the closing prayer.

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004. He retired in January 2013 and is currently a senior fellow at the progressive

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.
