Scandal: A month before the terrorist attack, the State Department was warned Benghazi couldn't protect itself and was surrounded by Islamist militia and al-Qaida camps. It was 3 a.m. and the administration pressed "snooze." When the U.S. mission in Benghazi called an Aug. 15 emergency meeting, it wasn't to discuss an obscure Internet video. It was to discuss the lack of security for a consulate surrounded by at least 10 terrorist camps. An Aug. 16 cable to the office of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and obtained by Fox News reported that the State Department's senior security officer "expressed
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam"
The criminal cover-up of Obama's decision to let Americans under attack die in order to protect his reelection campaign - what further damnation of the sick ideology of the Left and its MSM collusionists is needed? Ignorance is no longer an excuse for voting Democrat. From here on out, you are supporting evil on purpose whenever you even give these sickos an inch.

The legs on this story keep multiplying & elongating! Keep spreading the word! I recruited a new Ldotter the other day. She said her lib cousin thinks Benghazi is just a made-up right wing attack. I sent her all the latest articles by MSM rags. Now Investor's Daily is being added! Hoooooah!
Bravo Investors Business Daily for reporting the killing of four American heroes. Inexplicably, the Wall Street Journal reported exactly nothing in the last three days about Benghazi. Not even on the editorial board page. My subscription to WSJ is expiring and I will not renew it for this failure to inform, covering up for Hussein. They are complicit in Hussein and Hillary's cover up. For the first time I will be without a morning paper. Had to give up on the Los Angeles times 20 years ago because it was terrible for my health. I guess Lucianne and Drudge will have to do from now on.
The media is not only protecting Obama in the short term but also Hillary who they dream of being president in 2016. They figure they broke the racial barrier for Obama,so a woman's next in line. There's no way the left has a woman on the bench for president outside of Hillary and MO,who claims to not be interested.
Hillary said a month before her last senate run she wasn't going to run for president and that went out the window in very short order.
If it wasn't for lying,these people wouldn't know how to move their lips.
The treachery of America's news outlets matches that of the president who callously allowed the rape and murder of an American Ambassador and the slaughter of the former SEALS who tried to protect him.
Money has purchased souls of Old Media journalists, and few tears will be shed when they fall right beside the traitor president they have schemed to protect.
Young people serving the country right now are not unaware of how the danger they face has multiplied. I have one son in the Navy and the other with the State Dept. abroad. Family phone calls these days are not repeatable here.
There's an old joke on Wall Street regarding the crash in '87 that Greenspan knew he could save the country from a crash... he just had to create one first.
I'm connecting some dots here: Obama slipping in the polls. Rescues and big time brass ones, military stuff gives a boost...
Send an ambassador into harm's way. No back up plans; reduced security including an unreliable (perhaps islamist connected) militia. Attack occurs... tell everyone who could do something to 'stand down.' We all know that this is either stupid or ... or what? It was incredibly possible that without the intervention of the few people who were there that the islamists could have made off with one of our ambassadors... a hostage. Big problem. Must save face and do something heroic, eh? (kind of like cashing in on providing aid for a natural disaster)
Prince on shiny white horse rides in and saves hostage and... polls jump?
After the election, my huge concern is whether or not our congress will deal with this beyond "party" loyalties! This was/is a national travesty, not a party issue. Sadly, I have little faith in our government to do 'the right thing'...other than a few patriots, who are likely to be overpowered by the media collusion. What a mess... God help us!
Sean Smith's mom spoke on CNN October 10th and put me on notice that she and the whole country were being lied to. If any reporter saw this report and did not want to know more they should turn in their press badge.
Common sense 4 year warnings: 1. Illegal Domestic Enemy. 2. Shielded by corrupt government and worshipful media. 3. Chaos, and delay for maximum chaos, in all things. 4. Taking us to 120 today: Dumpling shaped republican moderates brunching with red diaper lawyers showing their cards for disputing election results, and the planned riots over any post-election impeachment trial, and promising not to plunge for the win by calling Benghazi scandal something like "accessory to murder, but, as a compromise for amity, agreeing to "this was just an unfortunate political advance that went amiss."
This story is like the holes in Obama's past. He clams up and refuses to be truthful. "It's for me to know and you to find out". Even a reward of $5,000,000 doesn't sway him. Waiting for a truthful answer is hopeless. Only intense interrogation would get anywhere.
Sadly, poster #2 has the right slant on all of this. There is a large segment of this country that either doesn't bother to watch, listen, or read ANY news. And some of those that do, get it from the drive-by's. In other words, they have no knowledge of what is going on the the rest of the country, much less the entire world. And if it doesn't affect them, they simply don't care. Just as long as their freebee's keep on coming in.
Campaign ad: In the oval office, no one is there. The phone on the president's desk is ringing. The caller ID says Benghazi. The phone continues to ring for the full 60 second ad. None one answers. Cut away to scene of Las Vegas.
re #14 & #19 -- thank you for your family's service & sacrifice for this STILL great nation, even if ick-O has been in the White House for 4 years. We are throwing the idiot/coward/marxist out!
My son is a combat medic temporarily stationed at Ft Drum in upstate NY. He will be training with a troop in January & rumor is they will be going to either Libya or Somalia. I will keep praying & your kids have been added to my list!
#32. If we are going to go through this tiring ordeal of firing up the time machine and going back, going back(as Obama and Dems comlain/claim pubs do), then let's also dial it back a few years to Clinton. His action or inaction cost lives as well. He did nothing to retaliate for the African embassy attacks, the USS Cole, the first World Trade Center attack, etc. This no doubt emboldened the enemy. Al Quada declared war on the US and Willy just twiddles with cigars.
In regards to this alleged Bush incompetence: If you are talking about 9/11/01, that attack had been in planning since 1996, if that is what you referring to.
Your hypothesis holds water, #36, however I don't believe any paper trails have indicated this so far. Your/the sequence of events make sense: The CIA operative ex-Seals were told to stand down, which they unexpectedly did not. Their intervention ruined Obama and co's theoretical plan and the "kidnap victim" ended up dead instead. The "kidnappers" could not enter the facility unopposed to score their bounty because of the CIA operatives and the terrorists responded with deadly fire for all-defenders as well as ambassador. Makes sense.
this great country's fore fathers designed it to be that way. See, the problem is your man ran as a moderate in the middle type guy. Then he went as far left as one can go. When you do that, your not going to get a lot of support.
And besides, name one thing he put forth that didn't get the support you speak of? Hello? Bueller? I'm waiting.... He couldn't get one vote of support for one of his budgets in the Demoncrap controlled Senate for cryin' out loud.
Why do people liek you act like Obama is King and should just get anything he asked for? This country was not designed to work that way, and was done so for good reason! Hello, 8th grade US history anyone? Sheesh, what is with you people?
I can tell you one time Obama got support, when he called on the Navy Seals to go take out Osama Bin Laden for him, and look how he repays those that do things for him!
This guy isn't worthy of a hand shake, much less your vote!
Look #33, you know that button the nurses told you about when you checked in to that mental institution, you should push it now! Your bed pan is completely full of it!
Romney needs to go hardball on this and simply say "It looks as if President Obama ordered the US military to not attempt a rescue. He betrayed US interest, four embassy staff died and if not for the bravery and competence of two former Navy Seals over 40 would have died. This is not like Beirut in 1981 because the fire fight lasted 4 hours, and there was a warning. It cannot be blamed on "Republican budget cuts because there was no budget. This is simply incompetence, no worse this is what happens when a President reflexively blames America rather than defends America."
At a minimum, Obama is criminally negligent and should spend time in jail for allowing those 4 (and an additional 20+ more if things had gone REALLY bad) Americans to die. Also Leon Panetta and his principal advisor, General Martin Dempsey, are criminally negligent, as well as being abject moral cowards for not lifting a finger to help those brave men in Benghazi.
We are seeing obama's middle east foreign policy in action. He is trying to cozy up to radical muslims, and thinks this will bring peace. A few dead Americans are just a bump in the road, and he accepts the risk. It will never work since the muslims view him as weak.
#5 it is a Ron Brown thing. The evidence had to be eliminated and this was the cleanest way to assure that "dead men tell no tales". There will be physical evidence though which will be damning and all involved will form a circle to protect the Prez. The only thing is that there are some very powerful people who are not going under the bus willingly, e.g, Petraeus, Hillary, even Susan Rice. This is is not going away no matter who wins the election in a week. The House will be in charge of an investigation and there will be plenty of people (including survivors of the attack the leaders in the field who were told to "stand down") who will come forward plus all the media (Cablegrams, emails, etc.) evidence yet to be presented. This is not Chicago although BHO thinks it is - I honestly think he is that stupid, that this can be swept under the rug by pulling the right strings. The story of his fall from power (and history's retelling of it) will not be as easy to airbrush as Monica.
Race Relations: A quarter-century after a black teenager falsely accused an innocent white man of rape, she has begun paying reparations for her slander. The man who rocketed to fame on her falsehoods is still at it. If ever there was a case of racial injustice it was the case of Tawana Brawley and Steven Pagones, except the roles of victim and perpetrator were reversed in the parallel universe of the racial grievance industry. The master of that universe is Al Sharpton. Pagones is not as well-known
Energy Policy: The president falsely claims that the jobs created by the pipeline from Canada would be but a "blip relative to the need," ignoring his own State Department and the unions that support him. At the rate President Obama is going, he may claim that building the Keystone XL pipeline will actually cost jobs. In an interview with the New York Times last Saturday, he argued that the best estimate is 2,000 initial construction jobs followed by no more than an additional 100 jobs, a mere "blip." The newspaper´s transcript of the interview showed Obama
Energy: A Saudi prince has warned that his oil-reliant nation is under threat because of fracking technology being developed in the U.S. and spreading around the world. OPEC is now caught between Riyadh and a hard place. Indicative of the panic rippling through the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries over the U.S.-led fracking boom, billionaire Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal says his Gulf Arab kingdom needs to reduce its reliance on crude oil and diversify its revenues, lest the era of gold-plated toilets come to an end.
Welfare: SNAP, the U.S. food stamp program, has become a conduit for redistributing wealth and fundamentally transforming America, as welfare recipients now send food overseas and the White House markets to illegals. While the administration laments the distraction of "phony" scandals like Benghazi and Fast and Furious that leave real Americans dead, it trots out phony statistics about how well the economy is doing. "And what is absolutely true is that we have come a long way since the depths of the Great Recession," White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said at a recent press briefing
Bankruptcy: The fundamental transformation of Detroit is complete, as socialism´s theme park succumbs to government run amok, a reminder that government isn´t the solution to our problems but their cause. The wisdom of President Reagan´s words have been lost under an administration that believes government is the entity from which all blessings flow. So has Margaret Thatcher´s observation that the problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people´s money. Last Oct. 13, President Obama boasted in a weekly address about the bailed-out auto industry that, "We refused to throw in the towel
Bill Of Rights: A Nevada family files a lawsuit after police literally seize their house to use as a command post after entering without a warrant and assaulting family members. Isn´t this what helped start the American Revolution? For those who snoozed through civics class, recent news events have provided an education on the U.S. Constitution, the bedrock of American democracy, assaulted by an administration that views it as obstructionist and irrelevant and by courts that view it as a "living document" — which is to say it means whatever they say it means on any given day.
Guns: Illinois has become the last state in the union to allow citizens their full Second Amendment rights, and officials in the murder capital of America worry about the consequences of citizens defending themselves. Illinois´ legislature on Tuesday voted to let gun owners carry concealed weapons. The action followed a violent and bloody Fourth of July weekend in President Obama´s hometown during which 74 people were shot and 12 were killed.
An oil-laden train not unlike those rolling down American tracks derailed and exploded Saturday in a Canadian town, proving why pipelines are safer and environmentalist opposition to a pipeline from Canada is misguided. At least 13 people were reported dead and 37 missing in the charred Quebec town of Lac-Megantic, 130 miles east of Montreal, after the accident created an inferno of burning crude. Some may never be found, likely vaporized by the sheer intensity of the blaze that burned for 36 hours. Canada´s oil boom, due largely to development
Regulation: No longer the stuff of science fiction, a little-noticed change in energy-efficiency requirements for appliances could lead to government controlling the power used in your home and how you set your thermostat. In a seemingly innocuous revision of its Energy Star efficiency requirements announced June 27, the Environmental Protection Agency included an "optional" requirement for a "smart-grid" connection for customers to electronically connect their refrigerators or freezers with a utility provider. The feature lets the utility provider regulate the appliances´ power consumption, "including curtailing operations during more expensive peak-demand times."
Oil: Production data for April show how fracking has shattered not only the shale rock in formations like Texas´ Eagle Ford and Permian Basin but also the myths of "peak oil" and petroleum as an energy source of the past. As Mark Perry notes on his Carpe Diem blog, Texas produced an average of 2.45 million barrels a day (bpd) of crude oil in April, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). That´s the highest average daily output for Texas in any month since April 1985 — 28 years ago. In only 2-1/2 years, the Lone Star State
Mideast: The assault on a monastery and the murder of its priest by Syrian rebels is a stark reminder of the threat to Christians in the Middle East and that the enemy of our enemy is not necessarily our friend. The Vatican has confirmed the murder by beheading of Syrian Catholic priest Francois Murad in the town of Gassanieh in northern Syria by jihadists belonging to the al-Qaida-linked group Jabhat al-Nusra, or Al-Nusra front. This raises questions about our involvement in aiding Syrian groups opposed to the regime of Bashar Assad
Energy Policy: A billionaire hedge fund manager and Barack Obama donor is pushing the president to stop the pipeline that would compete with one he´s invested in. That pipeline could send Canadian oil to China. Environmental activist Tom Steyer donated as much as he could to get Massachusetts Rep. Ed Markey elected to the Senate in the recent special election to fill the seat vacated by now-Secretary of State John Kerry. He wanted another senator who´s opposed to completing the Keystone XL pipeline that he says would be an environmental plague on the planet.
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.
Common sense tells me that cops don´t need a Taser or a shotgun to subdue a 95-year-old man. When John Wrana was a young man, fit and strong and fighting in World War II with the U.S. Army Air Corps, did he ever think he´d end this way? Just a few weeks shy of his 96th birthday, in need of a walker to move about, cops coming through the door of his retirement home with a Taser and a shotgun.
Not only should President Obama cancel a bilateral summit with "schoolyard bully" Russian President Vladimir Putin, Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg. "President Putin´s behaving like a schoolyard bully, and in my experience, I´ve learned, unless you stand up to that bully, they ask for more and more and more," Schumer said. "He´s always going out of his way, President Putin is, to seem to poke us in
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
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,
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 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
Michelle Obama took to Twitter on Sunday to send her husband an affectionate birthday message -- and a gentle ribbing about the US President´s graying hair. "Happy birthday, Barack! Your hair´s a little grayer, but I love you more than ever," Michelle Obama wrote on her official twitter account, @FLOTUS. The message was accompanied by an undated black and white photo of the Obamas as a young couple relaxing on a sofa. Barack Obama is spending his 52nd birthday weekend at Camp David, the rural Maryland retreat made available to US Presidents. He was to return
