Nobody wake Barack
New York Post, by Michael Goodwin

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/10/2013 5:06:50 AM

The Benghazi terrorist attack was a debacle in three distinct stages. The fatal mistakes occurred in the first two — the failure to provide adequate security before the attack and the failure to provide help once it started. Those mistakes were tragic, but the Obama administration’s explanations are coherent, though hardly defensible. The mystery always has been the third stage — the aftermath, or more accurately, the coverup. Even before the bodies of the four Americans came home, the White House was eager to tell any story except the real one. Aides twisted and turned to create the false narrative

The words Obama and "wake" sound pretty good right about now.

Neither Hillary or Obama ever saw a request for more security and Obama wasn´t able to be reached during the attack itself.Panetta says he didn´t have enough info to respond to the attack even though there were drones shooting the entire incident.

This thing went on for 8 hours while our whole government was totally immobilized to respond and the best answer we get is "at this point what difference does it make."

But Hillary is the most popular politician in the US.

#2 nails it. The only thing I would add is this: if it were MY loved one who trusted his government to provide security and failed, I would be screaming from the rooftops about it.

Why are they all so silent? No anger at the gross incompetence?

If Soros had been in that Benghazi compound, the entire military would have been pulled across the world and Benghzi itself would have been reduced to ashes.

There is still an ongoing effort to disappear all the other people who were at or near the compound. Where are they all ? Where is the media seeking their statements ?

Agree #3. I would not be silenced until I knew everything about this attack. Why isn´t the media camping out on these families´ front yards. They have no problem thrusting themselves in the face of anyone who has had a tragedy such as this. Just makes you wonder what the Obama thugocracy has "suggested" to these people.

Finally, how about you media hotshots ask Jay Carney where the folks that were rescued during the Banghazi attack are and can they be interviewed. Did no one at the hearing think to ask one of these guys to testify? You are not going to get the truth from Obama´s regime. The only hope is that someone who knows something will talk. Are there any patriots out there?

I have read other reports that Obama and company wanted to have the ambassador captured and then he would trade a terrorist we held for him. But the attackers were not aware of his plan and just killed the ambassador, and others. This is a debacle of major importance. This administration is totally incompetent!

This is all of a piece with Obama turning the writing of the Obamacare bill over to Nancy Pelosi who went to every Democrat Rep and asked if they had any old proposed legislation that had been rejected. She came up with about 2700 pages and I don´t think even Obama knew all that was in it. There were many blanksto be filled in later. Surely something incorporated after a bill is passed cannot constitutionally be law.

Unfortunately for Ambassador Stevens, he caught a tire when Barry threw him under the bus. I have watched a couple MSM news casts this weekend. NONE have covered this topic. If it were Bush in the WH, they would be all over this. Instead, I hear Lester Holt say "GUN VIOLENCE" 7 times in a half hour broadcast. Just making sure "the people" hear the message.

Why is this a surprise: Obama acted as he has consistently acted: letting others do the heavy lifting and sailing in afterward (e.g. Obamacare, written by others) to take credit or shift blame: leading from behind. The more egregious point, however, is that he flew off on AF1 to go to a fund raiser early the next morning: no wonder he needed his sleep. With Obama, politics and re-election trumped everything.

Hitler lost when his yes men generals were afraid to wake him.
Dempsey looked like the nerdy kid in third grade who would do anything to be liked.
Panetta has been using the military as his private taxi service back to his taxpayer funded progressive scam.
Neither Obama nor Hilary were to be seen or heard for the entire assault on America by Islamist terrorists.
They were both derelict in their duties.
Were they both drunk or under some other influence?
Did Obama turn Stevens over to be kidnapped for the blind sheik or killed to silence him?
Is their a gay connection to Obama similar to the murdered Donald Young?
Why didn´t one Republican ask Hilary where she was and what she was doing during the 11 hours?

#14 is right. The ultimate Villain in all this is the PRESS. The Benghazi incident should have been exposed before the election instead the MSM covered it all up as they will continue to do. You have to wonder will they ever have any self reflection and will it always be a total subjugation to their Socialist world view, in conflict with their stated goal of being the watchdogs to the powerful. All hear know the answer.

#7 if this were a Republican President, the press would be all over it. My local paper has had nothing in about Libya nor the hearings. That´s what makes low info voters. Right now this country is broken. It´s so bad that it seems ok to cheat to win the election for dems. No one is doing anything about that either.

The writer doesn´t know how right he is:

You would think a presidential conscience would keep him awake and engaged until he knew what had happened in Benghazi. You would be wrong.

That assumes a conscience, "presidential" or not. This is not a flippant comment simply to make snide remarks about POTUS; it is a clinical observation. I am not the first to make the observation that people with NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) do not have a conscience -- there is a black hole where sympathy and caring should be.

POTUS is a malignant Narcissist. They have no conscience.

As I have said repeatedly before, no surprises here. Classic Obama right out of the radical playbook. What is stunning is that we (aka Joe average gullible American, that is) keep letting these travesties happen and then the sheep buy in to it again last November. And to those who refused to vote for a mormon.

When you say Hillary is the most popular politician there is now, it makes me want to upchuck. The whole bunch of them is making it hard for me to endure even thinking about them. I am sure that this country is in absolute decline and there is NO retrieving it. I am actually glad that I am old enough that I will not have to endure the pain that the low information voters and the Republicans who did not vote, have brought to this wonderful country. God Help Us, and my grandkids and great grandkids, please.

I´ve suggested this before but I think Obama and Hillary may have been clueless. Obama has no time to actually be President. He was too busy campaigning and Hillary was gallivanting around the world partying. It looked to me like a spook operation gone bad. One of those things the President can´t know about. If it was a gun buying and smuggling operation I can see Obama blaming the CIA and throwing it in Panetta´s lap. Remember, Turkey is supplying weapons to Syrian rebels. The last visitor to the Benghazi outpost, at 8pm, was a Turkish representative.

Aides? Aides twisted and turned? Hell´s bells rang out! The principles themselves were first to air this lie, to obfuscate from questions that were serious, BECAUSE these players were themselves caught derilict and incompetent. Immediately, during the massacre, Hillary and Buhrock both were AWOL, period. Their lie was one to tamp down the obvious, trying to make the state run media blow this off, if not ignore it all together. Where were they anyway?

The Democrats when questioned on Benghazi reply by the let´s move on. It should be told over and over again until Obama , Michael Mullins Panetta Hillary Clinton start telling the truth.For over 5 hours American citizens were fighting for their lives and no help or command whatever was issued to save these people.Not from Obama who was at the time ensuring he got in as prez again.Amazing that CIA , State Department. Defense Department, Joint Chief of Staff did squat publically and Panetta being interrogated again stated he did not have equipment or forces available. No one gave any effort to face the President and tell him to order help. F 16´s were nearby 15 to 20 mins away at Sicily. No colateral damage was necessary, low flying fighters would have pursuaded the attackers to lay off the Consulate.The Democrats need to wake up and let them realise that no help from this crowd in the WH et al would not help them if they were in the same situation.How can this incompetant occupant of the White House face publically any camera with a straight face. Makes one want to throw up .

If Obama was on duty, Obama´s immediate mission should have been to make one phone call to the top dog Libyan over there and tell him in no uncertain terms what he expected the Libyan government to do ASAP, and if that did not happen there would be dire consequences.

For some reason, maybe an exciting basketball game on TV, or Obama needing sleep before he set out early the next morning to campaign in Las Vegas, that phone call did not happen.

No doubt after the attack was launched and up to this time the so-called main stream media has been in cover Obama´s back mode 100% and you will never hear that media report that Panetta said that Obama was "absent" the night of the Benghazi attack.

For those of you outside the NY metro area - - Michael Goodwin is a former far leftist who has slowly come to see the light.

He still describes himself as a "liberal" demonrat - - but he does seem to have a conscience and a sense of shame which keep leading him towards the truth.

Unfortunately - - the great preponderance of leftists is either too dumb or too evil to ever get there.

IF we had an actual cohort of journalists, not these brown-nosing toadies, not only would this story have been under hot, active investigation, most likely we would not be saddled with BO again. And, Hill-of-beans would not be considered for anything except the "Most Overrated" list.

We might try calling/contacting "news" outlets and complaining, asking them where their reporting is; and calling FOX to thank them for pursuing this, as they have on every other serious crisis, issue, malfeasance.

Other than that, share articles such as this one with your uninformed acquaintenances. Tell them to wake up before it´s too late!(kinda frustrating, i know... but i keep trying)

The Supreme Court ruled today that wealthy donors can contribute to as many political candidates, committees, and parties as they desire, and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, long an opponent of campaign finance restrictions and a supporter of the Court´s Citizens United decision, is celebrating. The Court did not rule as broadly as McConnell had hoped in the McCutcheon v.

Breitbart News recently charged a Texas tea party group at least $7,000 to promote and cover the group’s rally, according to a tea party organizer involved in the planning. On March 15, the group called Patriots Rally for Freedom held a rally in Martindale, Texas. In the lead-up to the event, organizers asked Breitbart News — which recently announced a “Texas bureau” — to cover the gathering. But according to Ken Crow, the tea party activist and founder of TeaPartyCommunity.com who made the call to Breitbart, the site would only cover the event if the tea party group paid for

Authorities on Thursday were still investigating why an Iraq War veteran shot and killed three people and wounded 16 others at Texas’ Fort Hood before committing suicide — and have not ruled out terrorism. “We’re going to keep an open mind. … Possible extremist involvement is still being looked at very, very carefully,” Army Secretary John McHugh told the Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday. Authorities said gunman Ivan Lopez, 34, enlisted in the Army in 2008 and served four months in Iraq but never saw combat and was not wounded in action, but was still being evaluated for post-traumatic stress disorder. “We

Barack Obama, speaking at Zingerman’s Deli in Ann Arbor, Michigan, decided to take aim at the budget released by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan. “If they tried to this sell [Paul Ryan´s budget] at Zingerman’s, they’d have to call it the ‘stinkburger’ or the ‘meanwich,’” Obama said. Good grief. This is the man we were told was rhetorically our next Lincoln. (“I don’t think we’ve had a president since Lincoln who has the oratorical skills that Obama has,” Professor Alan Brinkley told Charlie Rose the day after the 2008 election. “Obama has that quality that Lincoln had.”) Instead we’re getting references

After two months of sometimes-fevered speculation about what-they-would-discuss, the March 27 meeting between Pope Francis and President Obama produced little in the way of hard news. It did, however, generate some confusion about just what happened. That confusion was instructive on several counts. It was a reminder of just how poorly equipped most of the world media are to cover the Vatican and its ways — an incapacity that can often be blamed on the woeful state of Vatican communications, but not in this instance. It illustrated how the story-line that much of the world press has created about Pope Francis impedes

The Nicklaus Way of Golf—and Life

Who would have guessed it? The leader in the clubhouse is Jack Nicklaus. For so many years, that phrase was heard constantly during weekends of big golf tournaments. By now—heading into next week´s Masters at Augusta National Golf Club in Georgia—the phrase was expected by many to be a distant memory. The supposition was that Mr. Nicklaus´s record for the most major championships won—18—might very well be eclipsed by now. In 2008, Tiger Woods had reached 14, with no signs of letting up. The Nicklaus crown seemed destined to be removed. On Tuesday, Mr. Woods announced that he will miss

Fort Hood carries on after another rampage

FORT HOOD, Texas — The relaxed and professional bearing of the guards at Fort Hood´s main gate early Thursday, belied the brutal violence that had struck the Army post only hours earlier when a soldier killed three people and wounded 16 others before turning the gun on himself. Distant, howls of coyotes cut into the eerie quiet at the tragic scene, which only five years ago had suffered the worst attack on a domestic U.S. military installation in history. On Nov. 5, 2009, Army psychiatrist Nidal Hasan went on a shooting rampage that left 13 dead and 31 wounded. Parts of the

I have been repairing things since I was a kid. When I was in high school, I fixed many motorcycles, electronics and cars. My next-door neighbor was a man named Honest John. He was a used-car dealer in downtown Birmingham. I was low-cost help for him. And I got the work done. Since then, I have been getting things done in workshops and production operations all over the United States and around the world. Now I’m an electrical engineer, and I run a successful small business near Birmingham, Alabama. That engineer’s mindset has guided my political activity, including the decision to

New Jersey state senator Ron Rice, a Democrat, calls it “Newark-gate.” He is referring to a state comptroller’s report that details how a contractor swindled the city out of millions in public funds, and to the larger culture of “white-collar crime” that he says former Newark mayor Cory Booker allowed to flourish on his watch. For over a month now, Rice and one of his colleagues, Republican state senator Sam Thompson, have been calling for the New Jersey Legislative Select Committee on Investigation, which is currently investigating the Bridgegate scandal, to look into the “government abuses of power and cover-ups” they

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year. In a speech to an enthusiastic crowd of 1,400 at the University of Michigan, Obama repeatedly mocked Republican ideas about how to improve the economy, as he touted his own proposal to raise the minimum wage. Obama, who visited the local Zingerman´s deli before the speech, said that Republican proposals to cut taxes for wealthier Americans and

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state, thanks to a 28-state crosscheck of voter rolls. Initial findings suggest widespread election fraud. 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election. 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election. 155,692 voters

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile. It´s treating transportation as a utility, much like your water and sewer," said Larry Goode, with the Institute of Transportation Research and

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement. Last week, Eich attempted to dispel fears on whether he would support equality as the head

Sources on the ground in Benghazi during the 2012 terror attack are pushing back hard on former CIA acting director Mike Morell´s testimony on Capitol Hill, where he defended his role in shaping the administration´s narrative and claimed politics were not involved. As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time. That official told Morell the attack was not an "escalation of protests," but Morell said he had to weigh that against analysts who concluded the opposite. He ultimately went

5 Reasons Why Republicans

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel is "looking" at banning the sale of tobacco at military installations. According to one military publication, Hagel appears to support it. "As the Navy considers banning tobacco sales on all bases and ships, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel gave a strong endorsement of the review Monday, and suggested that he would be in favor of a ban," reports Stars and Stripes. “I don’t know if there’s anybody in America who still thinks that tobacco is good for you,” Stars and Stripes quotes Hagel as saying. “We don’t allow smoking in any of our government buildings.

Sarah Palin continues to act in ways that confirm some of the more negative things said about her. For example, she’s taken to Facebook to attack the most recent budget plan by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan.(Snip)Whatever differences Ms. Palin may have with the Ryan plan–and perhaps she’ll take the time to offer an actual critique of if rather than a Facebook entry with lots of upper case words–it’s hardly a joke. But what might elicit a roll of the eyes is comparing Ms. Palin’s views now versus what they were nearly four years ago. Consider this: On December

Senate majority leader Harry Reid has a whole page on his official Senate.gov website devoted to revealing "THE FACTS ABOUT THE KOCH BROTHERS." One of the alleged facts promoted on Reid´s website is that the Kochs do not pay any corporate taxes: “They are known for bankrolling conservative, Libertarian and Tea Party causes and became poster boys for corporate tax reform last year when an Obama Administration official suggested Koch is organized as an S Corp. and so pays no corporate level taxes.” The claim that the Koch brothers don´t pay corporate income taxes was first made by former White House official
