Justice for Benghazi? Still on Hold
Commentary Magazine, by Jonathan S. Tobin

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/9/2013 5:40:55 AM

In the wake of the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11/12, the administration made up for its deceptive accounts of the incident with bloodthirsty avowals that the persons responsible would be hunted to the ends of the earth. Nearly four months later, those promises remain unfulfilled. That stark reality was brought home today by the news that the only known suspect who had been arrested in connection with the terror attack that took the life of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans is no longer in custody.

Do you think we will see the mother of the ambassador and the other parents in Moochelle´s box at the State of the Union address?

Mostof the attack was caught on drone video,so it´s hard to believe they can´t identify the culprits. Maybe th etruth is they don´t want to catch them because they were paid to raid the compound..By the US government. The whole muslim outrage over the video was timed to cover up this attack. they were way too quick blaming the video,so it had to be part of the plan.To me,this ambassador was murdered by his own country and who knows for what reason. Maybe he was going to be a whistleblower on the whole operation/.

This regime really resents the citizens trying to butt into things. The narrative has already been written and the people need to shut up and believe what they are told to believe.
Why must we make it so hard for our dear reader ?

This is going to go the same way as Fast and Furious - into the trashbins of history never to be spoken of again. The government is far too inefficient, incompetent and corrupt to do a fair investigation and hold people accountable. There is no opposing Party willing to put their necks on the line and the fact is most Americans have moved on and no longer care. This, unfortunately, is the liberal society that we live in now.

We write our congressmen about Benghazi, no answer accept that they received my email (surprise, he´s a democrat). It´s so frustrating to even listen to the razzle dazzle they´re trying to put out, to see what will stick this time. It´s a simple question - who gave the order to "stand down". In two years from now, we still won´t have any answers except if Bill O´Reilly, Sean and those people start to insist on answers. Surely one of the 30 who was saved by the Seal will come out to thank the family of the Seal. As we all know if this were a republican in office, the press would be all over it.

If the families are asked they will be sittng next to Michelle O. Better do it or else.
I think Spidey has it covered. Like at benghazi I bet there are crisp,
clear satelite photos of Aurora Co and also Sandy Hook. Let´s see them.
I looked up on Wikipedia about ambassadors and embassies. There were 70 located in Tripoli. So what did Benghazi have that merited the attention or at least a consulate and an Ambassador "dropping by"?
I did find there was the National Front for the Liberation of Libya there. These were the "insurgents" that we and NATO armed against Kadaffi. So were we still in contact with them? Still with the Arms?

Don´t we all get the picture now? Every time this ambassador was attacked, starting in the spring and leading up to right before he was slaughtered, obama repeatedly stripped him of his security. The call to stand down, I have read, could only have come from the potus.
The question is, why did obama want this man dead?

James Holmes -- 2012 -- white --batman impersonator -- kills 12 wounds 58 in Aurora, Colorado -- facing trial starting this week

US Ambassador + 3 SEALS murdered in Benghazi -- 2012 -- the only suspect (muslim) released by Libya even after Pres Obama promised we (USA) would find the culprits and deal with them. State Dept says it is an FBI case and they won´t comment.

Rep Gifford (Dem) wounded -- Jan 2011 6 killed -- white guy -- already sentenced to life in prison.

Major Hasan -- 2009 -- muslim -- shouts allah akobar (?) -- kills 13 wounds 29 at Ft Hood -- if and when he comes to trial he can flout Army regulations by wearing facial hair -- still not on trial -- judge (hard core Army colonel) removed from case even though no bias proved.

White guys go to trial. Muzzie cases seem fade into the twilight+
Seems that there is a muslim in the wood pile.

3 hours after the start of the attack Biden and Obama left the oval office for one hour. They were both on the phone with Bibi Netanyaheu. Call to Bebe began at 6:30 PM and ended at 7:26 PM. At 7:28 PM Biden and OIbama are photographed returning to the oval office and being briefed by Deputy National Security Advisor McDonald.
Who was in charge while they were gone? At 6:30 the Pentagon ordered a special operations team in Europe to move to Sicily. Who gave the order? At 7PM US Security team from Embassy Tripoli lands in Benghazi and trys to arrange transportation. Newt Gingrich has said an unnamed Seantor told him some one ordered the counter terrorism group to "stand down". Who gave that order and when? What did Obama do after he received the update from McDonough, if anything?

Let´s not pussyfoot around. Obama and his adm. is EVIL. David Limbaugh is right. Obama is the Great Destroyer! That comes from the bible: Jesus said the devil comes to kill, rob and DESTROY. That´s why Zero is cold blooded. He doesn´t care if people die as long as he stays in power. His father is the destroyer the Lord talked about.

Crisis manufacturing is the first and most underrated function of our increasingly violent government. Benghazi can never be exposed. Bilary must be protected. We´ll never know about Vince Foster, Ron Brown,
JFK, Waco, MLK, RFK, John Lennon, Oklahoma´a Murrah building, so many school deaths. The question must be asked: how much of all this violence is staged? Look that the opportunities that follow all of these crises. Qui bono?, the timeless first question in all crime: "who benefits?"
All the socialist schlepps have benefitted greatly with this last most frightening mass
murder. They´ve all come out louder than ever before, relentlessly trading on the miserable, brutal act of school deaths, calling for Hitlerian confiscations. Is it even imaginable that any of these were possibly staged? Is this another Manchurian Candidate, of pre programmed violence where the supposed killer always dies immediately?
Our New World Order demo socialist State is providing an unprecedented avalanche of crises. Fast and Furious, Benghazi, open borders, communist medicine, too many violent deaths beyond any good person´s belief system and set of moral values, but it just keeps happening, almost as if by design. All of it.

Sometime before April 16, 2013, one or more people scouted the Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s high-voltage Metcalf substation off Highway 101 near San Jose, California. They went around the unmanned power station at a range of 40-60 yards, marking places from which the transformers’ cooling fins were clearly visible through the chain-link fence with piles of stones. According to a Wall Street Journal report last week, at about 1 a.m. on that April 16, someone cut the telephone lines going to the substation’s location in a manner calculated to be hard to repair. Within about another thirty minutes, shooters took

Successful entertainers are often awful people. If you put fame, wealth, and narcissism in a blender, the resulting brew can be toxic. Fame causes ordinary folk to worship the entertainer and to view him as a superior being to be served. Wealth provides the means and the opportunity for indulgence. And his narcissism makes it all seem natural, appropriate, deserved. We know this. Everyone knows this and always has. It’s why, in the 1930s, MGM employed two notorious fixers, Eddie Mannix and Howard Strickling, to throw their weight (and a lot of bribe money) around Los Angeles in order to

At the new Washington Post home of the Volokh Conspiracy, Ilya Somin has coverage of a recent speech given by Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. In it, Scalia talks about two of the more controversial SCOTUS decisions of the last century. One is the nearly universally panned 5-4 ruling in Kelo v. City of New London from 2005 and the other is the 1944 (wartime) decision in Korematsu v. United States regarding the internment of the Japanese. In the speech, Scalia once again aired his feeling that Kelo would eventually be overturned. On Kelo, Scalia reiterated his 2011 prediction that the decision

The Twitter handle @JamesDean has more than 8,000 followers and has sent more than 2,200 tweets. The account is being managed by an unknown owner or owners, and that’s not sitting well with James Dean’s estate.

WASHINGTON -- An American citizen who is a member of al-Qaida is actively planning attacks against Americans overseas, U.S. officials say, and the Obama administration is wrestling with whether to kill him with a drone strike and how to do so legally under its new stricter targeting policy issued last year. The CIA drones watching him cannot strike because he´s a U.S. citizen and the Justice Department must build a case against him, a task it hasn´t completed. Four U.S. officials said the American suspected terrorist is in a country that refuses U.S. military action on its soil and that has proved

She said that it’s very hard for Americans to grasp how impoverished post-Soviet Russia is in social capital. It’s extremely hard to find the kind of trust between people we take for granted here.

He is believed to have swiped a total of $30,000 from the three stores before he was caught. Cops said video footage from inside the store shows the teen pocketing bundles of cash.

It runs on natural gas. Little by little, the auto industry is starting to embrace natural gas, the domestically produced fuel that sells for a fraction of the price of gasoline. America, thanks to the gas boom in the upper Midwest, is seeing an energy renaissance because of it.

It is one of the most common - albeit, ineptly used - elements of the English language. Now, an American academic has suggested that the comma could be abolished as a punctuation mark. Professor John McWhorter claims removing commas from most modern U.S. texts would cause ´little loss of clarity´ - meaning they may now be in a state of obsolescence.

Democrats from President Obama on down have been touting Obamacare´s sign-up numbers. Even after the system´s disastrous rollout, they like to point out, roughly three million people have signed up for private insurance, while 6.3 million have signed up for Medicaid. "Already, because of the Affordable Care Act, more than nine million Americans have signed up for private health insurance or Medicaid coverage," Obama said in the State of the Union speech.

On May 12, 1992, Stan Greenberg and Celinda Lake, top pollsters for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, issued a confidential memo. The memo’s subject was “Research on Hillary Clinton.” Voters admired the strength of the Arkansas first couple, the pollsters wrote. However, “they also fear that only someone too politically ambitious, too strong, and too ruthless could survive such controversy so well.” Their conclusion: “What voters find slick in Bill Clinton, they find ruthless in Hillary.” The full memo is one of many previously unpublished documents contained in the archive of one of Hillary Clinton’s best friends and advisers, documents that

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin´s long fall in popularity back home has hit a new low, one that could spell an end to the buzz she´s considering a presidential bid in 2016. In a new poll, she would lose a head-to-head contest with Democrat Hillary Clinton, 44 percent to 43 percent. Worse, she doesn´t even lead among those considering a GOP primary bid. Sen. Rand Paul is tops among Alaska Republicans at 15 percent followed by Palin, who is tied with Sen. Ted Cruz at 13 percent; Jeb Bush at 12 percent, Mike Huckabee, 11 percent; New Jersey Gov. Chris

Count Polly Lower among those who quit their jobs because of the health-care law. It happened in September, when her boss abruptly changed her job description. She went from doing payroll, which she liked, to working on her boss’s schedule, which she loathed. At another time, she might have had to grit her teeth and accept the new position because she needed the health benefits. But with the health-care law soon to take effect, she simply resigned — and hasn’t looked back. “It was wonderful. It was very freeing,” said Lower, 56, of Bourbon, Ind., who is now babysitting her

It was the perfect Christmas tableau at the Allen-Farrow household: There sat Mia and nine of her children around the dinner table. There were two turkeys, an abundance of side dishes, and in the middle, a carved angel. In came Woody Allen with a holiday greeting. “Pardon me while I puke,” he said, then went off to the kitchen to juice apples. Long before the scandals — Woody taking off with Mia’s adopted teen daughter Soon-Yi, Mia accusing Woody of molesting their 7-year-old daughter, Dylan — the Allen-Farrow family was regarded as the ultimate cosmopolitan clan, a multiracial brood of 11 children,
