Libya timeline suggests
cover-up in attack

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/14/2012 11:08:07 PM

The Obama administration’s public versions of events in the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya have been riddled with discrepancies, starting soon after the American dead and survivors left behind a charred diplomatic compound and bullet-scarred CIA building in Benghazi. The administration’s inconsistencies go beyond its false assertion for days afterward that a made-in-America anti-Muslim video spurred “spontaneous” Sept. 11 assaults in which U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, his information officer and two former Navy SEALs were killed.

So where the HECK are the other 30 or so people extracted the next day? Are they all in a detention center or what? And why is no one asking this question???

Good overview of what we all know. As to the special ops forces out of Croatia this is an interesting assessment of the timeline:

No the Libya timeline doesn´t just suggest a cover up. The Libya timeline screams cover up to all who are paying attention.

That doesn´t include much of the media however, because it doesn´t fit their dogma very well.

Evidence points to a quick hit planned on a defenseless compound. Chris Stephens and the bald guy,(Sorry), were to be taken out. Wearhouse emptied, and what was missing? Anyone?? Finally, lots of documents and loyal allies to expose and betray. Stand down fellow Americans, that was the Order.
They never planned for the SEALs to show up and drag out the struggle for hours. Surprise Barry. Just made your lying job, harder.

I find it amazing that the administration (FBI & Holder) would say no national security was initially involved with the Petraus investigation, so they didn´t have to notify congress, yet the same ya-hoos took nearly a month to get the FBI into Benghazi to investigate. By that time, the reporters (who didn´t seem to have a problem getting there) had scarfed up all the classified documents laying around. Ironic, isn´t it?

It´s not the fingerprints but the timeline that always nails them. Yes, the tad too clever ones. The ones who think of the gloves and the compound rehearsed stories to cover their tracks and invent plausible alibis. But, oops...that pesky timeline.

You want to be a real journalist? You want to ferret out the real story? Ask them about the blatant and unanswerable inconsistencies in the indisputable timeline.

Using Occam´s Razor:
Patraeus, knowing the true nature of the Benghazi attack, initially testified that a video caused the attack because he was being blackmailed.

And the ´too many questions,´ will go unanswered as the scandal eventually disappears from the minds of electeds, judges and journalists. The sloppy cover-up will be filed within the same annals which house details relating to the silencing of Vince Foster and Ron Brown.

For #1 and 18, I don´t believe there were 30 people ´´extracted´´. Remember when the fighting was going on, there was a contingent of Marines sent from Tripoli and when they got to Benghazi, they were supplemented with about 20 or so Libyans. They surrounded the compound and engaged the enemy, but had to beat feet back to Tripoli. The extraction story was just another attempt to make it look like the admin. was semi-successful at outraged Muzzie crowd control.

No information of WHO decided to develop the $70 million video shown in Pok-is-stan apologizing for the 15 minute trailer. Just when did instructions come to produce that and who could do it in less than 24 hours and secure viewing time on Pokie T.V.
Was the LIAR-in-Chief trying to expand eruptions of protest in other regions with their apology video.

Can´t remember where, but I read that the "other thirty" are CIA employees and now in Germany.

Wouldn´t want them chatting frankly about what was going on day to day in the last two months before the attack. And we really wouldn´t want them telling about the last seven hours.

Imagine the carrot and stick treatment they´re experiencing right now.

Correct #6, beware of media generated "timelines" such as the one put on line by CBS as they tend to distort reality.CBS totally fails to list Clinton´s rant about the "video" and anything that in any way puts the real culprits in this Administration in a bad light.

FTA: "Still lingering is the issue of an exact timeline for President Obama on Sept. 11 after the White House received a State Department email about 4 p.m. (10 p.m. Libya time) stating that the consulate was under attack."

This itself contains a deception: implying that the message was normal "email" from the consulate, rather than "flash message" traffic, which is transmitted via secure, priority channels directly into the WH situation room, and, per protocols, is required to be hand-delivered by the watch officer to the President or his immediate representative. Bottom line: there is NO WAY Zero didn´t know virtually in real time that the consulate was under attack and the situation was desperate.

Are they being held as well? Have they lost their tongue? Threatened? Why has not one family member shouted? The former Navy SEAL´s dad has been speaking in public for the past two months.

#29, what was going on was a gun-running operation to the Syrian ´opposition´ (aka, muslim brotherhood in Syria), and tring to get back the weapons we gave to the Lybian ´opposition´ (aka, the Lybian muslim brotherhood). Stephens had been the initial contact man with the Lybian oppo before they got Khadaffi, and he was trying to retrieve the stuff we had given them and send it thru Turkey to Syria. Hence the visitor from Turkey who left about an hour before the attack began.

and what he did on September 11 ???
Obama´s very defensive and angry presser yesterday ,
complete with his voice going into the whiny high octaves
was a tell.
I bet anything that Barry was drunk, doped up or behind closed doors with his latest boy toy.
The fact that he couldn´t say at 5pm on September 11 , in the Situation Room ,
I immediately ordered all resources
deployed to rescue the Americans , is the key.
Instead , he uses the lawyerly phrase " when I was told " I then ordered blah, blah to rescue those folks.

Democrats Lose Two More Special

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

On the defensive about their prospects in the midterm elections this fall, congressional Democrats have spent all of April savaging the Republican budget proposal, decrying the Koch brothers and championing a series of bills meant to ingratiate themselves to struggling middle-class voters. In promoting legislation that would extend unemployment benefits, increase the minimum wage and promote equal pay for women, the Democrats have declared themselves the party that will ensure a “fair shot” for all. Republicans, they insist, are the party of special interests. It has been a classic Washington messaging campaign for these partisan

On a trip to Moscow early in her tenure as secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton played the role of international saleswoman, pressing Russian government officials to sign a multibillion-dollar deal to buy dozens of aircraft from Boeing. A month later, Clinton was in China, where she jubilantly announced that the aerospace giant would be writing a generous check to help resuscitate floundering U.S. efforts to host a pavilion at the upcoming World’s Fair. Boeing, she said, “has just agreed to double its contribution to $2 million.” Clinton did not point out that, to secure the donation, the State Department

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. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Distressed homeowners seeking

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

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

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

Say what you will about Sens. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) and Ted Cruz (R-Tex.), but they know a train wreck when they see it. They also know when to separate themselves from the cranks and the losers on the right. Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi. In fact, Cruz’s office confirms he hasn’t endorsed anyone in the primaries. He may weigh in after the primaries. Rand Paul has endorsed two very establishment

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

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

The last rancher in southern Nevada has won his battle to graze cows on public land after a week-long stand off with federal agents. The Bureau of Land Management today said it would stop trying to seize the cattle of Cliven Bundy after armed militia members today continuing to gather in Nevada in a confrontation with federal agents. BLM Director Neil Kornze said: ´Based on information about conditions on the ground, and in consultation with law enforcement, we have made a decision to conclude the cattle gather because of our serious concern about the safety of employees and members of

Because you can find anything on the Web, you can easily search and pull up a running clock that tells you just how long, to the second, Barack Obama has been president. It moves in real time. It only feels like it´s speeding up. Constrained by crises over which he has little power to impact events, hemmed in by a divided Congress more interested in scoring points with voters than in legislating, and watching as his potential successor assumes more and more of the political spotlight, Obama may be receding into history more quickly than either he or his aides ever anticipated. It was impossible to listen to the president's speech Thursday
