Benghazi Storytelling
Weekly Standard, by Stephen F. Hayes

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/4/2012 5:06:05 AM

The White House has had quite enough of the controversy over ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice, the misleading talking points she used in TV interviews about the jihadist attacks in Benghazi, and the Obama administration’s contradictory narrative about those attacks. “There are no unanswered questions about Ambassador Rice’s appearance on Sunday shows and the talking points that she used for those appearances that were provided by the intelligence community,” asserted White House spokesman Jay Carney at his briefing on November 27. (Snip) Jay Carney is wrong. The administration has not answered even the most basic questions

I feel like we´re stuck in an old episode of ´Get Smart´...."would you believe?"

I want truthful answers. Who gave the order to stand down? What was Amb. Stevens doing in Benghazi? Is anyone in this administration capable of telling the truth?

The MSM won the election on November 6. Who can seriously believe they will do anything other than continue to cover-up Benghazi for Obama?

The same MSM the GOP refused to expose for its blatant corruption. The same MSM the GOP allowed to host and moderate the debates. Why should these journalist-crooks listen to anyone´s critique now, from the Weekly Standard or anywhere else? They know they´ve played the GOP for fools and will continue to do so.

Until they are exposed. In court.

Barack Hussein Obama, the source of all this posturing, should change his name, (again).

He needs to drop the "ama" and replace it with "fuscate" -- would denote the pure essence of the scoundrel and would not obsolete the monograms on his shirt collars.

His hackneyed habit of voting "present" is no longer considered precocious and his pitiful presence is heralded worldwide. /s

Even in court -- poster #2 -- you´ll be up against all the liberal/feel/good judges who support the DC template....

Think Local and forget Washington DC. It´s a den of elites who don´t know their posterior if it was handed to them in a gift wrapped CHRISTMAS present. (there how´s that ACLU? I love CHRISTMAS and will celebrate it all the days of my life.}

Five story changes in two weeks. But Jay Carney says all has been explained.

I hate to say what I think but I will. I think Obama and Hillary thought they could tell us anything if the CIA guys were killed quickly and told whatever outfit was on the way to help to stand down. Unfortunately for secrecy, they lasted seven hours. If this is so, it is a secret the White House must keep at all costs.

They successfully ran out the clock on Benghazi. Obama got elected. The threat is over. The MSM did their shielding job. This will now dissipate slowly no matter how much the toothless Republicans gum this to death.

I´d like to know what has happened to the two parents (the mother of one, the father of another) who spoke out? Why are they no longer taking to the airwaves, even on Greta, or Huckabee, or Judge Janine? What has been said (or done) to them to quiet them down?

I´d still be screaming from every front step in DC if it were my son this happened to.

Also, why have none of the 30-some evacuated that night been identified? Have they been silenced as well? Were they all in deep UC?

Come on! Tell us what happened and why! Why keep protecting him now?! Surely everyone realizes the GOP is toothless to do anything about it.

If the truth will set you free, we are certainly headed for bondage because we have been lied to over and over by Obama, his administration and the media. When your government can weave absurd untruths aided and abeded by a complicent media, we are headed down the path that so many oppressive governments have taken their people. With so many Americans willing to accept anything this administration says because they are dependent on government largesse, don´t expect an outcry for answers on the Benghazi tragedy from them. Four dead Americans mean nothing to these people. The only thing of Importance is their agenda. They will lie, cheat and kill to ensure that their ambition to fundamentally change this country is realized. These people aren´t playing bean bag. They are deadly serious and I am not sure our side wants to confront them because it´s "too haaaaaarrd".

Until one of the presses own members in good standing is harmed by this administration, there will be no change in their desire to reveal the truth to the public. On the other hand, even the beheading of Daniel Pearle was insufficient to awaken the press to the evil of the Jihadi Islamist. I wonder if a similar treatment of Ms. Maddow or Ms. Amanpour would raise them from their stupor?

Right #10. If the pubs really wanted to get to the bottom of Benghazi, they would seek out those thirty individuals and bring them to DC, put under oath and question. They´ve obviously been sequestered. They are the achille heel of the admin. They would collapse the whole deck of cards.

Yep that´s right-it´s all going away/under rug swept. Obama supporters on other internet channels are responding with, "what´s Benghazi?", to any article posted and "you got nothing". Dodge City is DC.

Being terribly disappointed and convinced the election was a fraud, I took solace in the assault by the GOP on the Benghazi issue. I had hopes it would be pursued like a hound on a rabbit and that hussein would be driven out of DC to be relegated to the annals of the demned. Thus he would be hard pressed to bloviate about his great accomplishments and the evils of the next administration.

But? I feel like the corner of the carpet has been lifted and the broom is in hand. There´s still hope, but it is rapidly dimming.

Empty suit. Empty golf togs. Empty hoops-shootin’ shorts. Empty present-votin’, background-hidin’, integrity-lackin’ lockbox.

As Election Day loomed, “Prevent Obama From Being Tarnished In Any Way” was the marching order. Say, or don’t say, anything necessary in order to keep his carefully designed, meticulously crafted image as a formidable, decisive, stalwart leader alive. We know he’s actually made of spun sugar but let’s not wander into that congested thicket until at least November 7th.

Now there is a story that Benghazi was not really a consulate, but basically a transfer point for arms being transshipped or somesuch to areas in Europe

I would think that only an idiot would use an unstable area such as Libya to transfer major arms supplies.

The 30 rescued were all CIA operatives. Can´t find them and their job requires anonymity.
All of the different stories has resulted in fatigue and by having so many narratives the regime can say they have explained it thoroughly, problem is there may only be one truthful word in each explanation and finding that one word is not possible. I´m convinced the MSM is as brain dense as the public who voted for Obama and can´t see a reason or need to get to the bottom of this fiasco.

# 21 as for Obama´s whereabouts on 9/11- we know that for part of the missing hours -he was in bed.
A missing Ambassador and three other Americans
is not something Obama
would lose sleep over.
Now..had the missing Americans been NBA players or rappers , Obama would have kept an all night vigil
in the Situation Room.

" President Obama was notified last night that U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens
was unaccounted for.
Obama was notified this morning of Stevens´ death, the White House said."

It´s interesting that the various timelines of when Obama was made aware of the attack
are always vague and lawyerly .
Even Obama is purposefully vague .
He says things like " when I was informed " or " as soon as I was notified ".
It´s pretty obvious that someone was acting as the Commander in Chief in Obama´s stead.
Was that because Obama was in some altered state that rendered him unable to make decisions ?
Or is this a routine occurrence while he frolics with Reggie and Kal ?

Sorry..I believe we are headed straight down the path of a communist dictatorship. The UN gun resolution will be passed by 0 and he will demand our guns. That in turn will cause a shooting revolution..and those who think as we do will lose. Too many big guns against us. Recently worked an immunization clinic at Ft Lewis south of here, and asked several sgt majors if the military would fire on US citizens. One didn´t really ans, but intimated yes, the other, a fan of Glenn Beck, said quickly, *yes, some of them will. They have been so dumbed down by public schools they know nothing, so, yes, if ordered to they will fire". Slept real well that night. /s

it behooves both sides to make this go away. I truly believe that what is or has been going on in DC is pure kabuki - the story will never be told. It will remain for all to see through a glass darkly for at least as long as the Kennedy story, maybe longer. And we still don´t REALLY know what happened on the grassy knoll. An abundance of conspiracy theories serves those who conspire...

Exactly #19. A CIA operation to run weapons to Syria. It was not a ´consulate´. Why didn´t Chris Wallace ask Susan Rice if it was a consulate? He knew it wasn´t, or he is willfully ignorant, or helping Rice out in the interview.

I would also like to know who shut Romney´s mouth in the 3rd debate about Benghazi.Somebody put a mussel on him.

With Holder at DOJ, nothing will come from there to expose Benghazi, especially as Benghazi was Fast and Furious writ large.

The only hope is for Congress to use its power of subpoena to give some of these actors a downside, threatening them with jail time for contempt or perjury. Newt wouldn’t have made a good president, but if he were Speaker today, we would be getting some answers.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J – An Atlantic City casino is suing a big-time gambler, claiming he won $9.6 million in a card-cheating scheme in baccarat. The Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday against Phillip Ivey Jr., considered one of the best poker players in the world. The lawsuit alleges Ivey and an associate exploited a defect in cards made by a Kansas City manufacturer that enabled them to sort and arrange good cards in baccarat. The technique gave him an unfair advantage on four occasions between April and October 2012, the casino asserted in its lawsuit. The

Microsoft finally killed off support for Windows XP this week, but the company decided to wax nostalgic about one of the most memorable parts of the operating system—that serene, hilly landscape that serves as the default XP desktop background. In a video released on the day the tech company officially ended support for the 13-year-old software, Microsoft interviewed the man who took the photograph, called “Bliss.” Charles O’Rear, a former National Geographic photographer, said he was driving through Napa Valley, just north of San Francisco, when he decided to stop and snap a photo of the idyllic countryside (on an

Brussels- Until recently, members of the Russian delegation to NATO were free to roam at will about the Western alliance´s headquarters here on the outskirts of the Belgian capital. The Russians had an awkward habit of listening intently to others´ conversations at the cafeteria, yet their presence was tolerated in the name of dialogue. Not anymore. In response to Vladimir Putin´s annexation of Crimea, NATO earlier this month suspended all practical cooperation with Moscow. Now most of the 70 or so Russian personnel enjoy about the same level of access to the alliance headquarters as journalists. It´s a small but significant sign

Cancellation of Tomahawk Puts
American Navy On Perilous Course

The Obama Administration will be adding insult with its cancellation of production of the Navy’s Tomahawk and Hellfire missile programs. These decisions followed by just weeks the decision to reclassify two hospital ships, 10 coastal patrol craft and a ferry boat as “capital warships.” The Tomahawk decision is particularly troubling, as the cruise missile has for years been the workhorse of presidents seeking to deliver limited, precise, stand-off military responses. During the 2011 Libyan crisis, the Navy flung 220 Tomahawks in support of operations. We launched more than 1,100 at Kosovo. About 100 of these missiles are used in an average

My American Enterprise Institute colleague Nick Eberstadt provides a reminder that the federal government has been a pioneer in producing useful and reliable statistics. It began with the Constitution´s unprecedented and, in Eberstadt´s words, “truly revolutionary” requirement that a census of population be conducted at regular intervals and that the number of representatives each state would have in the House of Representatives would be based on it. That’s the good news. The bad news is that the quality and quantity of government statistics has been deteriorating. Eberstadt decries in particular the government’s “hastily devised ‘federal poverty measure’ unveiled in 1965,” which

On top of rising premiums, Obamacare taxes are adding hundreds of dollars per year onto customers’ costs, according to new study from the American Action Forum. Those who braved the health-care law’s exchanges will have to pay an extra $354 on average in 2014, reports the free-market D.C.-based think tank, just due to seven taxes included in Obamacare. The vast majority of the country covered by employer-sponsored health insurance will be forced to pay a somewhat lower tab of $196 to cover the taxes. Those with self-funded employer-sponsored insurance are exempt from several of the largest culprits and will have the lowest

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

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.

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C. Jones of the Federal District Court of Nevada smacked down high-handed, abusive feds, sending the pretend cowboys riding roughshod over Western ranchers and property owners back to their cobweb-laced offices in 2013. In spite of their 200 armed snipers with boy toys in tow, those Stetson-wearing feds hunkering down on Cliven
