A Twist in the Benghazi Saga
Daily Beast, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 1/3/2013 4:55:46 AM

If you thought the Benghazi saga ended last month when a State Department review concluded that a handful of State Department middle managers failed to provide adequate security for the U.S. mission, think again: it may no longer be dominating headlines, but with multiple active congressional investigations and an ongoing attempt to hunt down the perpetrators, the story of Benghazi is far from over. The biggest recent development—which was overshadowed by the fiscal cliff negotiations—came on New Year’s Eve, when the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee released a report

Left unsaid is that the trail leads back to the State Dept and the WH.

I don´t understand why any American is allowed to be in any of these countries ruled by Islamists. Do you have to actually see a Christian´s throat slit before you get the idea?

I watched the first testimony before the House. One thing I that stood out was that starting in the spring of 2012, each time the ambassador came under attack, he was stripped of some of his security detail. Happened, I believe, three times up until August. Then he was slaughtered in September. I wonder why obama wanted this man dead?

When did the Benghazi story "dominate headlines"? When were there even mention of Benghazi in any of the lamestream media?
Guess I missed it.

Hope this Benghazi incident is investigated continuously until we know "all the truth." This story is so frustrating, sad and outrageous. I can only imagine how these four brave and loyal Americans´ families are dealing with it. One of the saddest and most disgraceful chapters in our history.

Notice how there has historically been no military response to Al Qaeda/terrorist attacks overseas against American interests when a democrat rat sits in the White House?
It´s just more, "Oh well, move on, sweep it under the rug, try to forget about it, must have been our fault-we were on their turf". The apathy, appeasement, capitulation is amazing.

No. 4 may be on to something. Read up on the Chicago´s Trinity United Church murders. Three young, gay men - all known associates of BO, were murdered within a month´s time just before BO began his presidential run. BO has never commented on the murders. Wonder what they could have said?

It is perfectly clear that State and the WH watched these people die and withheld aid. Why they didn’t want them to survive is unknown, but the fact that they refused them protection before 9/11, and refused them help on the night of the attack is beyond debate. Finally, when the news of the attack and the fatalities broke, they launched a program of deceit to hide their actions from the public, and the Secretary of State has twice dodged testimony under oath, and the president shrugs it all off as sloppy work.

Two members of Trinity church were murdered--the third person died of aids related illness. There has been little or no investigation concerning the murders. Donald Young let Larry Sinclair know he and obama had intimate relations. The church apparently facilitated the matching of the down low club. The rev. Wright was deeply involved per many reports on this subject.

Very strange Stevens´ father came out within days of the murders in Benghazi to just let it rest and not report more in the news. Does make one wonder what zero had on Stevens.

The only account I have read of this that ties it together and makes sense of it came to the conclusion that Stevens was CIA, the entire Behghazi operation was a CIA operation collecting weapons and sending them to Syria through Turkey. In that scenario, the 30 Americans pulled out would have been scattered to the wind, unavailable for questions, if you even knew their real names.

The attack in Benghazi could have been just the follow up of the roll-up of the CIA operations in Lebanon by Hezbollah, or it could have been part of internal fighting between Hezbollah, the muslim brotherhood, alquaeda, and other radical groups. Just because they are all muslim does not mean they are all working together, and to understand the Benghazi attack it is probably necessary to first understand the interests and natural alliances of all the various groups in play in Syria. For this the American press is absolutely useless. For starters, remember that Alqaeda gets its financing from Saudis, Hezbollah is an arm or Iran, and the Saudis and Iran are enemies. Get the picture?

Dittos #19 - I was thinking the same thing about the mysterious 30 other persons who were saved that night in Benghazi. If the "Consulate" was mainly a CIA operation and those 30 "persons" were all CIA operatives, then that would be a good reason why these people are "unavailable" for questioning. They don´t want to identify who those people are. That also lends more credence to the CIA operation explanation.

He is the Manchurian candidate. The puppet to ValJar´s puppet-master. They give him what he wants to satiate his numerous habits and inflated ego (i.e.: drugs, sex, travel, expensive gifts...whatever) and he gets up in front of the world and says, in his oh so sophisticated baritone, what they want him to say.

Anyone or anything gets in the way, they ´deal´ with it. But they can´t even do that quietly.

It´s that simple. We have wannabe Chicago thugs running the most powerful country in the history of the world.....and Republicans...at least most of them....can only suck their thumbs and weep.

Pathetic.

So what happens next? Well, it´s simple really. What happens when you discipline a spoiled child? They throw a tantrum.

That´s what is coming our way, eventually. Only these spoiled children are evil and have no problem hurting us to get their way. They are, in effect, Adam Lanza.

Despite a life with more wreckage than Lindsay Lohan and Britney Spears combined, Mickey Rooney somehow never stopped being Andy Hardy. Forget Oscar. That, friends, was an acting triumph. Through serial divorces, bankruptcy, career implosions and struggles with the bottle, Rooney still came across to America as sunny, plucky, perpetually optimistic Andy, who lifted American spirits in the 1930s. He became a star by flashing a smile as wide as he was tall, and 70 years after Andy Hardy, he still had it. Sure, he could talk about animal rights or his deep friendship with fellow child star Judy Garland. He won an Emmy for

Anti-poverty zone leaves out L.A.´s poorest

In January, President Obama announced a block-by-block approach to relieving poverty in Los Angeles. Federal money, he said, would pour into a newly created Promise Zone. The boundaries encompassed crowded immigrant communities around MacArthur Park and Koreatown, as well as upscale areas of Hollywood and Los Feliz. Left out was South L.A., where the poverty rate is higher. The exclusion stunned many South L.A. leaders. The strategy, presidential aides said, was to concentrate resources in communities where nonprofits or public agencies had already received one of the Obama administration´s signature urban renewal grants.

It’s hard to say whether Obama is lying just to expand government power or he actually believes this clap-trap himself. Either way, the country is screwed with a guy like this in office. Good luck, America – you’re gonna need it. This week, the Republicans in Congress put forward a very different budget. And it does just the opposite: it shrinks opportunity and makes it harder for Americans who work hard to get ahead. More government spending doesn’t automatically make the economy run great, or any nation that could spend all of the economy’s money would be in heaven. It’s

For Dems, a problem with seniors

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

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.

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.

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths.
