President told within 72 hours Benghazi
attack linked to al-Qaida extremists

Washington Guardian, by John Solomon

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/17/2012 6:30:20 AM

U.S. intelligence told President Barack Obama and senior administration officials within 72 hours of the Benghazi tragedy that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region, officials directly familiar with the information told the Washington Guardian on Friday. Based on electronic intercepts and human intelligence on the ground, the early briefings after the deadly Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Libya identified possible organizers and participants. Most were believed to be from a local Libyan militia group called Ansar al-Sharia that is sympathetic to al-Qaida,

What is NOT being driven home by these committees is that by blaming the video on the attack, not only did it provide cover for the administration but Obama, Rice, Clinton, Axelrod, Biden and everyone else that blamed the video created more violence in the Middle East. They gave aid and comfort to our sworn enemies. It was the Administration BLAMING America for the "uprising." It´s our fault. Muslims had a right to be offended. We are a despicable islamophobic country. No matter that the guy who produced the video was a coptic Egyptian.

President Zero and Hideous Hillary created the policy supporting,/encouraging the arab spring. It was a failure, and they cannot make it sound like a success although they certainly tried.
Remember how hillary, early on, said that sympathetic libyans lovingly carried Ambassador Stevens to the hospital? I believe Ambassador Stevens´ body was dragged through the streets. She do have a way with words, hey?

It is my belief that within in minutes of the events in Benghazi, Obama assembled his political team and someone came up with the video as a way out of doing nothing that would force them to admit Al-Qaida was alive and well. Obama bought into this and headed to Las Vegas. He purposely let them die without trying to help. In my opinion he is dog crap.

Bee Ess. The WH published schedule showed that the President had a "closed door" meeting with Biden and Panetta at 5pm on Sept. 11. Obama was out somewhere and returned to the WH at 4:50 and went right to that meeting. The attack on Benghazi was in progress at that time.
Mark Levin read it out loud right off the WH web page.

We might as well accept he´ll never be impeached and the mass of the low information people who voted for him don´t care one iota if he lied. It´s all about wealth distribution and social issues. The only things that will get their attention are terrorist attacks on the home soil or the government not sending their checks on time. Their freedom to kill unborn babies will stay intact no matter.

Benghazi is a minor annoyance . Our mulatto Muslim WANTED the Brotherhood to assume power in Libya and Egypt . Now that Egypt has joined their bretheran and is launching rockets as well poses a minor problem for our Lames , but they´ll simply unreport most of it and keep El Presidente´ off the hot seat . Anyone out there , aside from Hannity , question the odd timing and ousting of the two , Khadafi and Mubarek ?. The whole Middle East is now in radical hands and Israel is back to fighting for its life . Watch Dumbo throw them an anvil .

Nothing will become of this. Nothing will beconme of anything this man does. Now, I am hearing that he wants to change the constitution so he can run (and win again) a third term. That too will happen if he ask for it......

Where is anything on the Muslim prisoners being held captive at the consulate? Do you think this was an additional motive for Al Qaeda to attack? Is there any motive for Zippy to keep this hypocrisy quiet?

If they knew, then they had responsibility to defend. But instead, the WH said stand down. What were they trying to keep under wraps?

Too many unanswered questions here to sweep this under the rug.

I was shocked when I picked up my paper today and the article above the fold byAP writers Dozier and Pickler said that Petraeus told Congress that classified information showed the deadly raid on the US Consulate in Libya as a terrorist attack BUTthe administration withheld the suspected role of AlQaida affiliates to avoid tipping them off.

Avoid tipping them off? This is the very first I have heard that excuse and it is the one hitting all the papers today.

The attack happened on Tuesday. So even if it took 72 hours, which we all know it didn´t, there is no excuse for his people to have swarmed the Sunday talk shows with the video story, and for Obama to have lied about it to the U.N. on September 25th.

The only words of caution I have involve the priority of this investigation. The lie to the American people is one thing, but nothing was said under oath, so there is probably nothing legally wrong with what he did. I want someone to ask him, under oath, if he was in the situation room watching this in real time, and if he gave the order to do nothing. The real scandal is that those militants would have scurried like roaches if even one smart bomb had been dropped on them. Obama knows this but didn´t want to "offend" the easily-offended Muslims.

I think the Arab Spring is about to turn into the Arab Winter, with no tourism, no jobs and a lot of out-of-control fanatics. You csn´t blame this one on Bush, prez.

Obama continues to publicly say that he´s in the dark about his own timeline and
his conduct the night of the attack.
It´s becoming pretty obvious that he wasn´t
involved in the decision making .
Drunk, doped up or behind closed doors with the Do Not Disturb sign as he played with his latest boy toy.
Or he purposefully directed that the " folks " at the consulate
be left to die.
And then left to watch ESPN.
All his activities-either neglect or being an accessory to murder are impeachable.
The House should bring articles of impeachment for Dereliction of Duty.
The Democrat Senate would never convict .
Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats continue to work with the media to actively
cover up this growing scandal.
Impeachment hearings would be a way to get the truth and record it for history.
Republicans have the obligation and the power to do this .
They owe it to the dead.

Even this piece continues to follow some of the administration´s memes. That there was a mob outside the Benghazi consulate already and that the attackers simply used that. We know there was no mob of protesters, that the attackers hit the consulate and entered it immediately.

This story also buys the administration excuse for the alteration of the CIA´s talking points before they were handed to Susan Rice for her five Sunday morning "presentations". It was not necessary for her to disclose anything classified - names, strategies, whatever - by simply saying the attack was a terrorist attack. Instead she blamed it on the video.

This seems to be a compilation and regurgitation of news previously reported by others. The adherence to the Administration line is worrisome when this is supposed to be an independent "guardian" website.

It is odd that they mention this in their "About" section:

What ever happened to the days when Sam Donaldson would relentlessly press the daily spokesman at the White House podium for clear answers to the hard questions the country wanted answered?

Sam Donaldson´s pressing zeal was exercised primarily against Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

And so, where is the Washington Guardian coming from?

The only reason possible is that he had received a communication that told him planes were being sent.

Who gave the order to send planes?

Obama should be prepared for when he meets His Maker and God asks the questions. He knows the answers, the why, when, where, and how come! He cannot be lied to and get away with it.

Judgment Day is going to be the Obama´s final Day of Reckoning. Obama and his administration better be ready to give a true account of exactly what happened.

I would not want to be in the shoes of Obama or anyone even close to him.

America needs to hold Obama and all involved accountable for their actions. If not, it is surely a bad example for our children.

Guess Obama must think that the only sin is getting caught, and if he can somehow lie or finagle a way out, he is free and clear. Not so! God has His way of bringing about His way. He allowed Obama to become President of US, and he has not followed through, only selectively giving bonuses and gifts to those who support him and his agenda.

God does have a payday. Watch and see what He will do in His time and in His way.

God is not finished with Obama yet. He has caused havoc/chaos in this land that God has blessed. We are daily reminded of that by looking at our coins/dollar bills - In God we Trust! If Obama had his way, that would be gone too.

Beghazi is just the beginning of the travesty that could happen when an administration is left to ther own devices, whatever their reason, the result is the same - devastation/destruction.

Pray for this country. We need a leader who loves God/country.

By the way, impeachment is is as real a possibility as the Tooth Fairy.

Unfortunately for our country, this occupant is inoculated against any consequence for his actions, malevolent, incompetent, or simply criminally negligent.

D.C. Abortion Fund Offers
Coat-Hanger Pendant for Donors

The D.C. Abortion Fund (DCAF) is offering a coat hanger pendant to all who donate $10 or more a month to the non-profit organization that gives money to women of D.C., Maryland, and Virginia who cannot afford to pay for abortions on their own. DCAF states that they hope to make “’choice’ a reality because we believe that a woman’s right to health care should not depend on her wallet.” They offer grants to low-income women on a confidential basis. The coat hanger seems to be a part of their logo, as it is also prominently featured on the main

Vice President Joe Biden wandered a little off course on a trip down memory lane today. “Fifteen years ago, I was honored, as the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, to lead the fight for Poland’s admission into NATO,” Biden said in Warsaw during a visit designed to reassure America’s Eastern European allies in the wake of Russia’s move to take control of Crimea. The only problem: Biden wasn’t chairman back then. It was Sen. Jesse Helms, a North Carolina Republican, who guided the committee and launched the floor debate on granting NATO accession to Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. Biden did

… actually, Mitt Romney doesn’t, not explicitly anyway. However, the context of this op-ed from Barack Obama’s 2012 opponent could not be clearer. After Obama and Democrats ridiculed his worldview in that campaign, calling it a relic of the 1980s, Romney warns that what America and the West need now is leadership that anticipates events and sees the world realistically so as to seize opportunities when they arise: Why, across the world, are America’s hands so tied? A large part of the answer is our leader’s terrible timing. In virtually every foreign-affairs crisis we have faced these past five years, there was

He said he hopes there is a new generation of young men and women that are willing to give up everything to change Kentucky. One thing Perry does not want to change: Kentucky´s senior U.S. senator.

SEOUL—When Park Yong-ok retired as governor of a Korean province last year, he forfeited the perks of a top government job, including a luxury sedan with a chauffeur. But his biggest regret was never going to the province during his four-year tenure. He recalls his appointment at South Korea´s presidential office in 2009. "Governor Park, what are you doing here? You should be in Pyongyang, not here in Seoul!" then-President Lee Myung-bak joked. "I spoke right back to the president with a laugh: ´Yes sir, I am preparing now to go to Pyongyang.´ " Mr. Park, 71 years old, was

If at least for the sake of variation, those charged with riffling through last Friday’s news dumps must have been relieved to find neither new Obamacare delays nor abandoned red lines hiding among the detritus. And yet, while the less technically proficient could have been forgiven for having missed it, an announcement just as vexing was waiting in lieu: that America was planning to give up control of the Internet. At this point in the proceedings, one is customarily chastised by pedants who note impatiently that the United States does not really “control” much of the Internet at all — at

In the state of New York, hundreds gathered near Sarasota Springs in a fiery act of civil disobedience aimed at gun control lawmakers. According to the Post Star, “nearly a thousand gun registration forms were turned into ashes Sunday.” Under NY’s SAFE Act, those who possess what the State of New York considers to be military-style “assault weapons” have to register by April 15th. “Once the Second (Amendment) falls, the rest will go with it. It’s an unconstitutional law, done in the middle of the night with no input from the public,” E.J. Stokes told the Post Star. The NY2A

Is Zaharie Ahmad Shah a real-life Marko Ramius? Is the mystery of Malaysia flight 370 lifted straight from a famous bestselling thriller-turned-Hollywood-blockbuster? Recall: A brand new high tech Soviet nuclear submarine vanishes with officers and full crew aboard. A frantic search begins, though the alarmed Kremlin is silent about the fact that it has been notified by the captain that he intends to defect and hand the sub over to the Americans. The officers — but not the crew — are in on the plan. The Israeli government is alarmed that the vanished Malaysian plane has in fact been hijacked to

The first lady, her mother, her two kids, plus numerous White House aides and security personnel are going to tour China this month, but White House officials are refusing to say how much the taxpayers will pay for the trip. However, they did say it would be a thrill for everyone on the trip, including for Michelle Obama’s top aide, Tina Tchen. “It is a real honor and privilege, and I think we are all, here in the first lady’s office, quite excited about the upcoming trip,” said Chen, just after she declared that “my parents emigrated from China in the late

New York City’s St. Patrick´s Day paraders stepped off Monday without the participation of liberal Mayor Bill de Blasio, and few noticed or cared. In demonstrating his solidarity with militant homosexual groups who were barred from waving their rainbow banners, and not the traditional green ones, Hizzoner became the first mayor in decades not to march in an annual tradition older than the city itself. (Snip)This was nothing about actual tolerance. Homosexuals eager to advertise their persuasion could have marched without drawing attention to their sexuality. They have their own parades, often with displays of the lewd and lascivious.

The United State of America of President Obama is hapless, helpless and hopeless in facing down Russian strongman Vladimir Putin’s annexation of Crimea. Once more on the international stage, Obama’s actions have fallen far short of his rhetoric, cementing the President’s image as a man who recognizes the obligations that come with leading the globe’s only superpower but hasn’t the will or the muscle to carry them out. He draws red lines only to see them quickly erased, along with his credibility. As Putin moved openly toward severing Crimea from Ukraine, Obama warned that the world would isolate Russia for its violations of

WARSAW — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrived here Tuesday for a lightning visit to reassure Poland and the Baltic states that the United States will protect them from any Russian aggression similar to the actions it has taken in Crimea. In two days of meetings with the leaders of Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Mr. Biden is expected to pledge new but modest military and economic measures to shore up the NATO alliance and build solidarity in the face of the deepening crisis in Ukraine. Mr. Biden’s trip is designed to send a visible message to Russia, reinforcing sanctions the

I had an extraordinary telephone conservation with my 86-year-old black dad, a lifelong Democrat and huge Obama fan. He called to ask me, “Is Obama anti-Christian?” Dad has been a Christian pastor for over 50 years. I said, “Dad, I have been telling you about Obama´s anti-Christian policies for the past five years.” Dad replied, “And I have not been listening.” Dad confessed that he simply could not bring himself to go against a black man in the White House. I felt that dad was expressing the sentiments of many blacks of his era. I asked him to explain why

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is blasting beer companies that pulled their support for the St. Patrick´s Day parades this year. Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner. In an email, Donohue blamed the "bullying" against the parade on its "Catholic element." "I have had my last Guinness and Sam Adams. Heineken was always slop, so there is no sacrifice there," Donohue wrote. "I urge

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

First lady Michelle Obama "has been looking for an opportunity to go to China," a White House official said on Monday. And she considers it a "real treat" to take her daughters and her mother with her -- a trip she´s making at considerable expense to taxpayers, although the White House refused to give a dollar figure. "You know, the first lady has talked about the importance of young people here in the United States learning about other cultures. She believes that about her own children, and has seen this as a really unique opportunity to share a very different

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

“I think we’re in for a tsunami-type election in 2014,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus told the audience at Tuesday morning’s Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C. Looking ahead to this fall’s midterm elections, Priebus boldly predicted big gains for the GOP, especially in the Senate. ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need to and we need to at the RNC make sure that we can capture the positives and the benefits we’ve been

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that
