BREAKING: The president knew
the truth about Benghazi

Washington Post, by Jennifer Rubin

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 11/16/2012 11:55:38 PM

In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter, has ferreted out the president’s daily brief that informed him within 72 hours of the Sept. 11 attack that the Benghazi attack was a jihadist operation. Citing officials directly familiar with the information, Solomon writes in the Washington Guardian that Obama and other administration officials were told that “that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region.” He adds

The press will protect him. He won. And he´s cool. Plus (have you noticed?) he is black. Another hall pass for the POTUS.

Time for him to resign, like Nixon did. At least with Watergate, no one died.

[No, not really a yawn here, but of course, no surprise, either. But maybe just a bit closer to the end of Obamarule.

Sadly, the multiple failures in Libya and Benghazi will be forgotten by the media over Thanksgiving, if not this weekend. We know Obama lied, but then what? His next press conference will be in 8 to 12 months, and the questions will be as superficial as the session this week. Obama will be on TV daily, but not a single question will be allowed after his statements. Jay Carney will get questions from Fox News this week, but he lies as well as Obama. So, how do we get answers when no one takes the questions?

Follow the link in the first paragraph to the Washington Guardian article. There is a good summary of Benghazigate there, and near the bottom of the pare is the CIA timeline of the attack.

"a videotaped call by al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri for LIbyans to avenge the death of al-Libi, who was killed in a drone strike in Pakistan in June. The videotape was released early on Sept. 11, just hours before the attack on the consulate."

Well, there was a video alright - by al-Qaida leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri . This report from the Washington Guardian says it was released "just hours before the attack on the consulate". However, a 9/11/12 report for The Telegraph, by Rob Crilly, says the video was posted on Jihadi internet forums on Monday, a day ahead of the eleventh anniversary of 9/11. [See link]

Another Friday/Saturday news release that should generate outrage and action is buried in the busyness of the season. Congress leaves for Thanksgiving, people are being laid off, Israel clinging by her fingernails, and this imposter of a president is going to get a pass for Bengazi. Thanks, Jennifer Rubin.

The Obama press conference was curious to me. This guy doesn´t do press conferences.

But in this case he knew that the longer he waited to come out for a brief appearance, the more facts of this matter would come out in the meantime, making the press conference much tougher.

He has put his spin on the deal in advance of the facts. That is how this is done in Obama world/Alinsky world. He thinks the power of his words and persona lingering in the air are enough to refute reality. And the fools who are stirred up by his spin, such as the House women defending Susan Rice and distracting from the real issues, can be enough of a deflection of reality to get him through this.

He might be right. He might not be right.

That´s right, #22, and that fact is likely why Anderson Cooper found the ambassador´s diary and interviewed Sean´s Smith agonized mother. But Cooper got spanked for that by CNN and lost his daytime show. Another problem is that Steven´s sister seemed firmly in Hillary´s camp. Nevertheless, I would use the Dem tactic of saying no one cares about this wonderful man´s horrible torture and death and it must be because of his rumored sexual orientation. That´s how the lefties do it, although it would not work for our side.

Sorry guys, but I am really struggling here to keep my cynicism at bay. #11 says, "He survives a long as good people do NOTHING!". Well, good people did nothing on Nov 6 and we are left with this criminal and incompetent administration. Last night Dateline NBC had a story about the affairs but didn´t mention Petraeus´ testimony. Zero will survive this and very few will even know what happened. Sickening!

A man without a valid birth certificate and who there is well documented reason to believe might have given up his US citizenship if he had it in the first place, ran for election as POTUS and won TWICE. Is there any reason to believe any inconvenient law or fact will be of any consequence in this country? This is a pure waste of time and bandwidth.

There are more damning segments of this event than lying about why the attack took place and who was responsible for the attack.
Why was an ambassador in a country where all other countries had withdrawn because of the volatility?
What operation was the CIA running in the "annex"?
Why was the "rescue" so anemic--actually non-existant?
Why was security not beefed up as the ambassador requested?
Why was Rice, an individual not qualified or involved in the chain of responsibility and possesing no unique knowledge of the event, given the job of explaining the event on national news?

If Obama doesn´t have the class to resign, then the House must mark him with the stain of impeachment. He allowed Americans to be murdered either because of incompetence or for political reasons. He must not be allowed to escape. If we end up with Biden, he can be dealt with and there is no question that he is a natural born citizen. Washington Democrats and the Media believe that the nation can endure four more years of this incompetence and corruption but that is becoming more doubtful with each passing day.

The only news here is that president duncecap had to be TOLD that al Qaida was involved. Most of us knew that when we saw that the compound was being successfully destroyed with RPGs, etc. The typical attack by random, outraged muslim rabble is with stones, Molotov cocktails and an occasional AK-47.

This entire cover-up resembles the REAL life story portrayed in the film ´Rules of Engagement´ .... starring Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel Jackson. In that attempted cover-up, however, the ambassador was air-lifted to safety. He later lied to Congress about what happened and was found guilty of commiting perjury.
.... As for the fall guy in the film, the National Security Director framed and ´tried´ to court martial a black Marine colonel. The National Security Advisor, who had blackmailed others to lie and had destroyed evidence, was only forced to resign.

It’s a big weekend for the Bush family, which is enjoying a renaissance of sorts after several years in the political wilderness. Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W. Bush on the 25th anniversary of his arrival in office. One of the highlights of the weekend will be a live interview with his son, former Florida Gov.

Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional.

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G.

Rep. Darrell E.

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

When his aides get discouraged about the prospects for Middle East peace, Secretary of State John F. Kerry often bucks them up with a phrase: “Don’t be afraid to be caught trying.” But as his tireless efforts to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations hit bottom Thursday, with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping the talks alive, there are some around Kerry — including on his senior staff and inside the White House — who believe the time is approaching for him to say, “Enough.” Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. — Trying to put Obamacare’s problems behind him, President Obama renewed his election-year push for an increase in the minimum wage Wednesday and the White House urged fellow Democrats to latch on to the issue for their own political gain. Speaking at the University of Michigan, the president again fiercely advocated for a rise in the nation’s minimum wage, trying to keep the issue front and center as the November midterm elections creep closer. “In America, we don’t believe in opportunity for a few — we believe that everybody should have a chance at success,” Mr. Obama

Compromise on smaller minimum

President Obama campaigned in Michigan with Dem Senate candidate Gary Peters, making the case for a hike in the federal minimum wage to $10.10. Unfortunately, the wrangling in the Senate today suggests the idea is going to die. Senator Susan Collins has said she’s trying to craft a bipartisan compromise on the minimum wage that could win Republican support — a compromise that would require hiking the minimum wage to an unspecified point below the $10.10 per hour that Obama and Democrats want. Today Harry Reid ruled out the idea, insisting that Dems won’t agree to anything below $10.10. In

THE SUPREME Court on Wednesday overturned yet another federal law meant to check corruption and influence-peddling in national politics. The ruling shows two things: The Roberts Court’s destructive view on these matters wasn’t changed by the backlash to its Citizens United holding, and Congress must respond by designing new rules that can pass the court’s overly skeptical review. If lawmakers tackle the issue forthrightly, they have some workable options. The court eliminated an overall limit on how much donors could give to candidates, parties and various other committees over the course of an election cycle. The idea had been to

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church. I thought churches are not supposed

A senior CIA official has died in an apparent suicide this week from injuries sustained after jumping off a building in northern Virginia, according to sources close to the CIA. CIA spokesman Christopher White confirmed the death and said the incident did not take place at CIA headquarters in McLean, Va. “We can confirm that there was an individual fatally injured at a facility where agency work is done,” White told the Washington Free Beacon. “He was rushed to a local area hospital where he subsequently died. Due to privacy reasons and out of respect for the family, we are not releasing

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Why does Hillary Clinton hate America? That is the question that should be on everyone’s mind as she embarks on a worldwide tour to plug her forthcoming memoir. Check out this THE POLITICO article [emphasis mine]: Hillary Clinton discussed her work at the State Department, called for young women not to take criticisms personally and rapped the media for treating powerful women with a double standard at the kickoff of “Women in the World” in New York City Thursday night. Clinton’s appearance on a panel with International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde, moderated by New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, ran

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

Accra, Ghana — Jimmy Thorne says that relocating to Ghana is one of the best moves he’s ever made. It doesn’t matter if he, an African-American, gets called “obroni,” the local word for white person, in the streets, or if some of his family can’t quite figure out what he’s doing in this West African nation so far from his roots in North Carolina. (Snip) Whether motivated by love, money, or the desire to rekindle a long-lost connection, black repatriation to Africa remains alive and well, even if it never quite became the high-volume, emotional return to African roots

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep. Mike Rogers, who led all national politicians last year with 26 appearances over 12 months. Romney has
