Four Months After Benghazi Attack
Where Are the Killers?

Washington Times, by Eli Lake

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 1/11/2013 7:17:06 AM

Ever since an armed mob torched a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, President Obama has vowed to bring the killers of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to justice. Yet four months after the assault, U.S. counterterrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast that the hunt for those responsible remains stymied by poor cooperation by North African governments.On Tuesday, the Tunisian government released Ali Ani al-Harzi,

The murder of an ambassador of any country used to be a serious matter. Not so much anymore obviously. Or is it just Obama sweeping another scandal under the rug with the help of the MSM?

The Republicans are so inept. They simply do not know how to do congressional investigations. They´re leisurely, gentlemanly, accommodating. And in the end, complete failures.

Let´s face it, the killers are incredibly popular in the Islamic world. Why would a weak government turn them over to the infidel Americans?

The fruits of the "Arab Spring" - more hatred for the West.

until the general public sees these questions in the msm, they will not be taken seriously. the republican leadership should be shouting from the rooftops, buying t.v. time and telling the people about this inept, corrupt administration. when these articles appear only in the conservative press, they are not only (usually) not read by anyone other than conservatives, the information is dismissed as conspiratorial, false or worse. here in ma. it is just about a lost cause, but in other states, you can have some influence on your elected republicans to speak out - have press conferences and the republican committee needs to buy time on prime time t.v. to give the other side as often as necessary. enough with the lying back and hoping for the best. it´s not working.

Oh so true, #3. Can you imagine the hay Dems would make from such a horrendous and shameful incident? Dems would have had the two parents who were willing to speak out initially before the committee and the news cameras. They would have played up the ambassador´s orientation as a reason for the neglect of his safety, the extreme bravery of the former SEALS, the prophetic last tweet of the gamer Smith, and the abject lies told by the O gang for weeks afterward to the families, the public, the UN. The stand down order would have become a drumbeat for impeachment. Perhaps someone slips valium or marijuana into the GOP´s food in the Congressional dining rooms, or perhaps there´s blackmail involved.

Let´s see. The real killers are (1) Obama for calling the military to provide help to the two CIA workers (former Navy seals) and (2) Hillary for not providing adequate security.

Ambassador Stevens was raped and murdered and obama called it a "bump in the road".

Even if the republicans in DC cannot do the job of investigating this benghazi mess -- Americans know what happened. Thanks to the press in the UK and France....

Ambassador and the Seals were LEFT to die as hillary and obama partied.....

No one would have to wonder where the killers are , if Obama had tried
to defend Americans under attack.
My analogy is to a house set ablaze by an arsonist and then someone ordering the fire department not to respond.
There are two areas to be investigated , not just the one the MSM is focusing on .
I´m surprised Eli Lake hasn´t been reassigned to Antarctica-he´s bravely gone where the rest of the media refuses to go.
You can´t just look for the
murderers ( hint, hint..Islamic terrorists ) ,
the bizarre behavior of Obama on the night of the attack must also be investigated.
The White House stated that Obama went to bed knowing that Ambassador Stevens
and other white " bumps in the road " ,
were missing and the consulate under enemy fire.
A normal and American Commander in Chief
would had stayed up all night monitoring the situation primarily
because he feared for the lives of all the 30 plus Americans at the consulate.
Obama shows more affection and care for his personalized basketballs and special Nikes than he does for his fellow man.
Reggie Love and Kal Penn being the lone exceptions ....

The Benghazi gate Lie, the murders, have all been topped by the painful brutality of the school shooting. It was too convenient not to question its terrifying timing of both events. Reminds of WAG THE DOG, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, TELFONE. Yes that´s a brutal suggestion, but no more brutal than all the killings that are purposely being covered up. For all the amazing things that are happening in the creative free exchange world of today, these are terrible, deathly political deficit driven, greed ridden times

Amb. Stevens knew something Obama doesn´t want told, so O left him and all the others to die. He had no way of knowing the ex-Seals would be able to save 30 of those people when he went to bed. He thinks now if he ignores it, it will go away. I hope Hillary comes clean for a change. She isn´t famous for telling the truth.

I think we need to get rid of the notion that this building was a "consulate". It was a CIA station house under flimsy diplomatic cover complete with its own torture room. "Ambassador" Stevens was a CIA gun-runner funneling Gaddafi´s pilfered arms to Turkey for use by the Rebels in Syria. Those 30 survivore were all CIA agents so don´t expect them to appear in public anytime soon. They don´t want to be identified. The whole thing was an Obama/Hillary-concocted nightmare, run by incompetents. Job #1 for Obama was to lie to the American people about what happened.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —

An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that

Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

Approaching his first presidential trip to Israel, President Obama offered a fresh and foolish — if not feckless — assessment of the Iranian nuclear threat. "Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

An unfortunate story on CBS New York Thursday carried this headline: "Officials: 80 Percent Of Recent NYC High School Graduates Cannot Read." It´s a shocker, but it´s also untrue.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Although both supported the shutdown and were heartily supported by tea party groups in their own Senate races, neither one has endorsed Matt Bevin in Kentucky, Milton Wolf in Kansas or Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.
