Who fed Rice the Benghazi lie?
Tribune-Review [Pittsburgh, PA], by Pat Buchanan

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 11/17/2012 5:34:40 PM

At his news conference Wednesday, President Barack Obama postured as the young Galahad striding out onto the schoolyard to stop a pair of bullies from beating up a girl. (Snip) Consider again what Obama said. Susan Rice "had nothing to do with Benghazi." But if she "had nothing to do with Benghazi," why was she sent out to explain Benghazi? Why did the White House not send Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, CIA Director David Petraeus, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta or National Security Adviser Tom Donilon?

Comments:
Tom Donilon gets my vote for the person - or one of the persons - responsible for the CIA talking points scrubbing. His job in the last few months has been to keep Obama´s campaign eruption-free, especially in the national security area. It´s all about image. The fixer.

Near the end of this piece, Buchanan opines that the reason for the CIA talking points alteration could have been one of two:

One, the "spontaneous protest" story would enable Obama to keep pushing his campaign line that he had gotten Osama bin Laden and that al-Qaida was "on the path to defeat." A successful al-Qaida-type attack in Libya would have contradicted his best foreign policy claim.

Second, a spontaneous attack would absolve the administration of responsibility for failing to see it coming, failing to provide greater security, failing to have forces prepared to deal with it.


Image time, indeed. Right up Donilon´s alley.

Nobody fed Susan Rice the line, it was understood at all levels that the story they used was going to be the official position for as long as the compliant MSM was willing to run it.

It was all agreed before the Current Occupant departed from Washington to go to Vegas for a campaign swing, and for a few days, the story held.

Susan Rice knew the whole time, and insisted on repeating the official line. She wasn´t agonna rat anybody out, nosiree Bob.

Obama´s lies about Benghazi, Susan Rice etc. are big enough to drive a Mack truck through them. Come´on Republicans in the House and Senate - you know it, we know it, so let´s get Articles of Impeachment rolling now. Rattle the spoil brat´s cage.

Even if the Senate wouldn´t convict him, his term will be soiled if the House votes to Impeach him. The hearings should be long and drawn out - lasting until or even after the Inauguration. Just think of how he will go down in history books - "Impeached President is sworn in again and vows to keep on lying in his second term."

So President Chivalrous threw Rice under the bus on her way to Meet the Press, etc.

Meanwhile this topic, along with the Bimbo Chronicles, dominates the LSM, ignoring the glaring question: what was going on in the CIA Annex?

Susan Rice, thundered Obama, "made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her."
The WH requested she appear, but left it up to her what to say? I don´t think so.

Who feeds Carney his lies every day? Who feeds Holder his lies every day? Who feeds Clinton her lies every day?

All these people lie with impunity because they know the press is more than willing to look the other way. All these people are puppets of the Soros/Jarrett misinformation machine. Look no further for the source.

Put Rice under oath and ask her the question. Get an answer, unlike the Craig Livingstone/FBI files debacle 20 years ago.

Enough already. The 2 baby war sluts sent to bring Petraeus down dined once or twice in the WH, so the Petraeus set up is months in the planning. The control of the election must have been planned for years. This administration has been planned frame by frame like a Hitchcock movie. Benghazi is going to be a 4 month ordeal. And when it looks like its going bad for the dems, Hillary and Huma are going to be muslimists taking the fall. And then a little misdirection with Bill´s latest women problems, maybe with an emir´s wife, or a parade of gay republicans. And then, maybe in November we get a leak the press is permitted to follow about Obama´s proclivities. And some of the sealed documents. And then he comes out as a muslim, or as he will endlessly explain, a Chris-lum. And then the impeachment in early 2014, followed by Lindsey and McCain voting "No" for removal. Then something like a "Legitimatly sourced" letter, which will be published in "Der Spiegel" warning that unless the US pulls its armies out of every country, an EMP will be launched and exploded by a secret power. All this planned frame by frame -- to cover for Iran and other brand X muslim entities having time to push Israel into WWIII. And for the unions to break small and large companies so they can be nationalized by the government. And just in case the American 47% wakes up, there are all those billions of rounds of hollow point bullets for possible emergencies -- which will have been 3-4 years in the imagined planning. Not to mention the pre-2008 election planning for that Nobel Peace Prize thing.

Rice´s script probably came from Axelrod, who was for all intents and purposes Obama´s principal spokesman during the campaign. Today´s denial of any edits by the NSC´s Ben Rhodes was carefully worded to deny edits made by the White House or State -- a Clintonian parsing that doesn´t cover Axelrod. The best part of this is that as head of the campaign, Axelrod was a private citizen -- Obama and Holder can´t assert any privileges if Axelrod is subpoenaed by a Congressional committee for testimony under oath.

Probably nobody will take the hit: the Press will focus on the sex angle and ignore the four dead Americans and the President who was in a meeting in the Oval Office by 5:15 that 9/11 evening, obviously on Benghazi, and then flew to a fundraiser in Vegas the next day. Just as they will continue to show pictures of him hugging victims of Sandy without mentioning that virtually nothing is being done by a disgraceful FEMA and that Obama flies off after an hour on AF1.

The lies came out of Obama’s White House. Either he knew it and is guilty, or he didn’t and is incompetent. In either case, it fits “high crimes and misdemeanors.” A president lying to the people to hide an act of war upon foreign American soil by heavily armed militias is not a trivial matter.

Look, this isn´t that difficult. Obama himself essentially confirmed unwittingly that someone(s) in the White House prepped her. She´s the UN ambassador, for Pete´s sake. What the heck would she know about a State Department / CIA operation? And Obama pointed that out himself. He also pointed out that the White House asked her to do it. Why? Anyone at or above room temperature could figure out that they picked her precisely because she is female, black, and clueless. Ergo, they calculated, unassailable and able to claim plausible deniability if challenged later. Exactly what they´re doing right now.

So is it even necessary to establish the precise document trace leading to the specific individual who did the markup of the talking point memo and coached her? No it isn´t. The entire coven of co-conspirators and apparatchiks in the White House discussed, strategized, selected, and prepped her for her mission plausible.

And to whom do they all report? Barack Hussein Obama. Perpetrator found.

The issue will not go away if we do not allow it to go away. If we are going to ruin Obie politically, now is the time. But, the House committees that will be investigating the matter need to be all over it- on camera, in newspapers, and on the radio, communicating the status of the investigation. This will be the best way to isolate the msm and possiblly force them to report, especially when it comes time for the House to vote on articles of impeachment.

This administration is corrupt from top to bottom. They are ALL in on the Benghazi cover-up. And, yes, they ALL are incompetent and way over their heads for the government positions they hold. This is the down side of affirmative action and elitist liberal educations, combined with no private sector job experience. Obama deserves the stain of impeachment, even it is only by the House.

Like most of you here, I am doubtful that justice will ever be served for the four dead Americans. As in the election, we are fighting on two fronts; one against Obama and his minions and the other against the media. I would love to see some accountability from this administration, but when you are godlike, not too many have the courage and honor to go up against you. I hope and pray that there are some good men and women in government/media who will not let this go down the rabbit hole.

Exactly #11. Their misdeeds are an open book, yet the bam administration holds onto their lies like a baby to a pacifier. They don´t care how irrelevant their counter arguments are, etc. As long as they have anything to say in response, they think that is good enough. Well maybe so in their affirmative action world but not in reality.

Good #8. This administration plays Simon-Says with the truth or some variation of that, "Who´s on First?" skit, another luc poster mentioned before.

#1, FTA: "Second, a spontaneous attack would absolve the administration of responsibility for failing to see it coming, failing to provide greater security, failing to have forces prepared to deal with it."

They did not fail to see it coming. They knew the 9/11 events were happening all over the Arab Spring countries and in Benghazi in particular. They only looked at it from the left´s perspective of how to use it to their advantage - while directing attention / to blame America for being too offensive. It was sufficient to leave events on the ground to unfold as long as they had plausible deniability in relying on Libyan forces. They didn´t do all they could because they were thinking of a different approach: the appeasement approach and how to use the crisis they thought would come. Rice knew this much when she was appointed the special point person to carry the water.

Nobody. Listen very carefully to the words. Obama said that Rice "gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her." He didn´t say that she went out and parrotted what she had been given. He said Rice gave HER understanding of the intelligence.

From the description of Rice in Milbaank´s column in the Must Reads today, it appears Rice is an aggressive loose cannon who doesn´t play well with the other children in Washington. However, as a black woman, with the double helping of priviledge and special treatment that come with being both black AND female in 21st Century America, her immunity may be too strong for even Obama to do anything about.

So- perhaps the edits were made by Rice herself, and Obama just sent her out with a target on her back for McCain and Graham to do the political wet work and take the heat for it, leaving Obama´s hands clean, keeping him out of trouble with those promoting Rice for Sec State, and clearing the way for Kerry.

Oh, and since when did conservative Tea Party Republicans cheer like soccer fans for ... McCain??? Graham??? Give me a break. Something wrong with THAT picture as well. I suspect the whole thing is a carefully laid out charade to eliminate Rice from the Sec State nomination process, complete with feigned outrage, race accusations, anger, and drama. But first a word from our sponsors.

Timeline:

*Obama was gun and missile running against Constitutional authority...assumption the armaments came from manufacturer Lockheed

*Petraeus meets with Romney for VP slot..Obama freaks out

*7/13 the Ethicist letter appears in the favorite Obama outlet the NYT´s, as The Sword of Damacles over Petraeus

*8/6 Obama scoffs at fnundraiser that Romney “thinks” Petraeus will be his VP

*Benghazi 9/11 rape and murder of US ambassador Stevens and ex Seals murder happens...who asked the Seals to use their lazer to light up their position? As that pinpointed to the terrorists where to slaughter the Seals when no Drone intended help...so who led the Seals to believe there was armed help above? Otherwise they would not have revealed their own position

*Petraeus signed on to the Obama Internet video meme coverup story....just as blackmailed to do...to cover his own personal indiscretions being publically released....(Obama White House blackmails and threatens Petraeus for political control)

*Obama reelected (through fraud)

*Petraeus submits letter of resignation within two days with affair as excuse…..to aviod missile running exposure


*Lockheed new CEO, supplier of illegal armamnets ALSO submits resignation letter for affairs ( supplier of missiles and guns to Obama) now believing this excuses himself to sworn Congressional investigation too )

**** Other Considerations:

*Brennan prolly came up with Rice´s lie...as Clapper runs nothing....he is simply the disposable one for troubled times as the thrust to take own Israel has been in play for Obama since day 1...

*.Obama´s AlQaeda rebels take out and kill and rape Russian allie Kaddaffi (turning LIBYA over to Muslim Brotherhood)

*.Obama running guns and missiles including illegal Stinger missiles per NATO treaty... Illegally into Russia´s alley Syria ....in an attempt to take down Assad and bring Syria under Muslim Brotherhood control

* Russia behind Benghazi attack of Ambassador Stevens, using their rebel force... as payback for Kaddaffi...a rape and murder for a rape and murder

*Russia does victory lap...in arrogant move and show of power....their nuclear submarine off East Coast of the United States on Election Day 2012

Does this add up to Sedition, Treason or Ignorance??? Middle East now controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood...and missile strikes begin after Obama re-election...on Israel....As the FBI likes to say "There are no coincidences"

We´ve all read so many stories and seen so many informational conflicts that I´m sure I´ve missed a lot of it. But, has the administration, or any representative of it, explained why Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi? And have we heard why none of the 30 (or so) people who were evacuated from Benghazi have been available to the media?

There is the Obama "official" line and then there is reality. The Obama crew has been airbrushing radical Islamic terrorists out of just about every terrorist incident that has happened since he got elected. As an example remember the incident at Fort Hood, where an obvious Islamic terrorist who infiltrated the US military murdered a number of US soldiers that the Obama crew labeled as an instance of "workplace violence"?

A few Items I have not seen answered and a couple that I have not seen ever questioned!

1. Apparently at least two CIA agents managed to get to the Benghazi CIA Annex (those that rescued 20 plus people from the Consulate. How did they get there so fast when no others (Special Forces or Military) could?

2. We were told that there was no way those Special Forces or Military could get there within the 7 hour period of the attack so they were not sent. How did those making that decision know that the attack would only last 7 hours. What if the attack lasted 10 or 12 hours, and those that died also lasted that long. It seems no one in charge ever tried to send anyone to the rescue. They just left them there!

3. What is the FBI doing on foreign land. I thought the FBI was an internal US law enforcement service. Why was the AG even involved in a State Department responsibility.

4. Has anyone identified or talked to those that were recused? What information have they contributed to the issue?


5. Why did it take over two weeks for any US
people get to the Consulate after the attack? (and they were only there 1 hour). How could CNN get there ahead of the FBI (or anyone else) and find the Ambassadors personal diary?

Today I learned for the first time that the RNC accepted a "consent decree" back in 1981 that essentially allows the rats to get away with uncontested fraud every election. This decree is renewed as needed by rat judges.

http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2012/11/15/why-the-gop-will-not-do-anything-about-vote-fraud/

So my point is that it doesn´t matter what Obama does. It´s all fixed. I have to wonder how Reagan got elected a 2nd time, and both Bushes. Maybe the rats hadn´t perfected the stealing yet.

Personally - especially since Obama likes to crow about having government officials who "look like us" - I have to wonder who he means by "us"? Seems to me the blacks who vote color every time (unlike Allen West) are disproportionally represented and these people aren´t the least bit shy about feathering their own nests in the spirit of revenge that zero called for.

We need unity, toughness and overwhelming numbers to counteract this and bring back some decency to our government. Until then how can it matter what this administration says and does? The rat base does not care.

Now let´s see. You pick the one person in your administration that is totally clueless about what happened in Benghazi -- Susan Rice -- and send her out as the spokesperson on Benghazi for the administration. She mindlessly parrots a "briefing" that is pure fiction on five Sunday talk shows.

If she knew the real story, she was totally dishonest. If she didn´t know, she must be really, really stupid! Either way, she should not be Secretary of State.

It isn´t incompetence, it´s policy. Obama is a communist plant to destroy us. The attack was to silence the bag man, Stephens, who was buying weapons from Gadhafi´s stash. They were stolen by AQ for the Syrian campaign, and to take out Israel helicopters. The stink of Obama hasn´t settled because the media keeps blowing the fumes away.
Petraeus was blackmailed and bribed, the election was stolen, and the elitist media are looking "forward" to the establishment of the new world order to replace American power with Soros/UN style fascism. After sabotaging the United States, obama will rule through the NWO, unless some patriots stop him.

My bet is on Hillary because I don´t think Obama pays attention to this foreign military stuff unless he is required to send in a drone. Hillary was calling the shots and Obama told everyone else what to say. Who dug up the Patreaus affair? That would be the Valgal and Axelhood. Whatever, it all sounds like Chicago-lie-cover-up stuff.

Who done it? Obama done it!

The buck stops we know where, especially when it flutters down to the top of his legendary desk in the Oval Office. Trying his best to swagger, sinuate and slither his way out of the ultimate responsibility for Rice saying what she said is buck-passing of the highest order. C’mon, Barry! Fess up! Your umbrageous act has worn paper thin.

Where is the curious lack of outrage on the part of Rice... If someone gave me wrong information, and I put my name on the analysis, I would be mad mad mad.

My credit and integrity would be at stake .. I would be seeking to clarify and rectify the situation digging for the truth.

I just don´t see that happening with the corrupt bunch in Washington.

The WH can just deny anything because it successfully discredited Petraus. All in the plan. Nothing will ever stick. The press has no interest in pursuing. Credit to Graham et al but it won´t go anywhere.

America is lost.

A female Temple University student is vowing to return to class despite being unable to chew even the softest of foods after a gang of children smashed her in the face with a brick Friday night. The 19-year-old woman, who has declined to be identified, was walking with her boyfriend just off campus when a group of about 10 children began taunting them – they were followed for a block until the vicious assault that left her with dislocated teeth and a fractured jaw. ‘I’m definitely going to go back to class,’ she told WCAU despite her parents expressing reservations

PERTH, Australia — Ships rushed to the location of floating objects spotted Monday by Australian and Chinese planes in the southern Indian Ocean close to where multiple satellites have detected possible remains of the lost Malaysian airliner. One ship was carrying equipment to detect the plane´s vital black box, but it remained uncertain whether the vessels were approaching a successful end to the search or another frustrating dead end. Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott called his Malaysian counterpart, Najib Razak, and informed him about objects that had been found in the search, (Snip) Najib was scheduled to hold a news

As a school superintendent, you’re typically measured by a few numbers. Test scores, graduation rates, crime rates, finances, gaps in student achievement, and perhaps a few other metrics, depending on your board of education. You can actually tackle these problems, or you can employ the dark art of data manipulation. In 2012, a news story exploded onto the national stage that was very instructive in how to magically lower school crime statistics – yet nearly every major news outlet missed it.(Snip)Alberto Carvalho just won Superintendent of the Year, and his numbers appear to be impressive.

President Barack Obama’s appearance on funnyordie.com’s parody show “Between Two Ferns,” where he took mock questions from comic Zach Galifianakis, was a lot of things: funny, unusual, an intriguing way to sell Obamacare and very popular. One thing it was not, though, was an “interview” — unless you’re White House press secretary Jay Carney. Carney was defending the administration’s aggressive campaign to get young people to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act. (Snip)That’s some quality trolling of the media by Carney, a former Time magazine bureau chief.

All nine employees of TheSquareFoot.com in New York City have neat, clean desks—except one. Co-founder Jonathan Wasserstrum´s desk and the floor around it are strewed with paper, files, tech gear and old boxes. "I like being near my stuff rather than fishing for it in a cabinet somewhere," he says. Being near Mr. Wasserstrum´s stuff is harder for Justin Lee, the company´s other co-founder. At times, "some of his crud will spill over onto my desk," Mr. Lee says. Other co-workers at the online commercial real-estate leasing and brokerage company sometimes print new copies of documents to avoid handling food-smeared

BURBANK, Calif.—A 3-year-old boy who fell out of a third-story window in Burbank was saved by a quick-acting couple who threw a mattress out to break his fall. KABC-TV reports Konrad Lightner and his wife, Jennifer, were moving out of their apartment Sunday when they noticed the toddler and his sister throwing their toys out the window. When they saw the little boy throw his leg over the window sill, Konrad rushed to put the mattress down. He was able to break the child’s fall, placing him onto the mattress. The toddler was taken to a local hospital for evaluation,

14 of California´s 32 measles

California public health officials say 19 of the 32 cases of measles they have confirmed so far this year are in people who had not been vaccinated, and of that group, 14 were intentionally not vaccinated. As the number of measles cases continues to grow across the state — there were only three by this time last year — officials at the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) have urged parents against opting out of vaccinating their children. They say an increase in the number of people choosing not to vaccinate could drive a resurgence of the respiratory disease, since

In Eastern Europe, Biden

VILNIUS, Lithuania—Vice President Biden’s we’re-all-in-this together tour of Eastern Europe, a two-country stop that concludes here Wednesday, has highlighted not only the growing regional anxieties over Russia’s designs on Ukraine but also how much work the Obama administration has to do to convince allies of its support. At its core, Biden’s message here and in Poland was a simple reaffirmation of what one senior administration official called a “bedrock commitment”: The United States would honor NATO’s basic premise that if one member nation is attacked, all would come to its defense. (Snip)In some ways, the anxieties are the inevitable result

Vice President Biden misspoke on Tuesday, claiming he had led the fight for Poland to join NATO when he served as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Biden, whose tendancy toward gaffes is well known, served as chairman from 2001 to 2003; Poland joined NATO in 1999. “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, Poland, on Tuesday during a visit to reassure allies as Russia moved to annex Crimea.(Snip) Former Sen. Jesse Helms had been chairman of the committee

SEVASTOPOL/MOSCOW--The United States warned Moscow it was on a "dark path" to isolation on Wednesday after Russian troops backed by unarmed volunteers stormed Ukraine´s naval headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol and raised their flag. The dramatic seizure came as Russia and the West dug in for a long confrontation over Moscow´s annexation of Crimea, with the United States and Europe groping for ways to increase pressure on a defiant Russian President Vladimir Putin. "As long as Russia continues on this dark path, they will face increasing political and economic isolation," said U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, referring to reports of

The hunt for Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 took yet another maddening turn Tuesday as officials in Thailand revealed radar picked up a plane about the same time the jet disappeared. Speaking 11 days after the Boeing 777 vanished en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing, Royal Thai Air Force spokesman Montol Suchookorn said radar showed an unidentified aircraft tracking west toward the Strait of Malacca at 1:28 a.m. on March 8. Flight 370 stopped communicating with air-traffic controllers eight minutes earlier. Suchookorn said the Thai military doesn’t know if the plane on the radar was Flight 370. He said “we did

She has piqued his interest in the relationship between food and health, he said in a recent telephone interview, so the man who made the Hawaiian chocolate-malted ganache for the White House state dinner for France is now headed to New York with an aim to teach children and adults about eating better. In the meantime, he has given up his usual breakfast doughnuts for a smoothie made with apple, kale, spinach and ginger — from time to

The American Association for the Advancement of Science came as close as such a respectable institution can to screaming an alarm last week. "As scientists, it is not our role to tell people what they should do," it said as it began one of those sentences that you know will build to a "but". "But human-caused climate risks abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible changes." In other words, the most distinguished scientists from the country with the world´s pre-eminent educational institutions were trying to shake humanity out of its complacency.

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

At a summit conference at The Hague on preventing nuclear terrorism – scheduled long before the Ukraine crisis – Obama will confer with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other leaders. On Monday afternoon Obama will meet with President Xi Jinping of China, Russia’s neighbor and sometime rival.

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

WASHINGTON — Mitt Romney said Sunday that President Barack Obama is naive when it comes to Russia, has shown "faulty judgment" about Moscow´s intentions and could have done more to try to deter its annexation of Crimea. The 2012 Republican presidential nominee said Obama didn´t have the foresight to anticipate Russia´s moves and should have been working earlier with allies to make clear the penalties that Russia would face if it moved into Ukraine. Romney did acknowledge that such steps may not have been enough though to hold back Russia President Vladimir Putin. "Had we communicated those things, there´s always

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor.

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

A few weeks ago, I wrote about how the sweeping acceptance of gay marriage in recent years is owed in large part to Christianity. Rejecting the rigidly hierarchical and stratified societies of the ancient world, Jesus Christ taught the equal dignity of all persons, proclaimed that the meek shall inherit the earth, and declared that the last shall be first and the first shall be last. The Western world has been working out the logic of these subversive teachings ever since, with the institutional transformation of marriage being the latest, though surely not the last, example of its social, moral,

Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the
