CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy
CIA agents were only in Benghazi to help locals in designing a suitable mausoleum for Qaddafi. Shouldn´t be too ostentatious but still befitting a dictator of his stature. Or, agents were passing out absentee ballots so that Islamic terrorists could vote for Obama. Or, agents were conducting town halls on ObamaCare. Whatever, it was all perfectly innocent.
Truth is slowly dripping out, but the election was last year.
If the CIA is "so scared" as to threaten its own operatives & their families, allow the murder of an American Ambassador [Chris Stevens] and three men when they could have been rescued, the stakes could only be high enough to include one thing: NUCLEAR WEAPONS & their transfer within the region.
Since we never got the ones from Iraq, it would be a good guess that Libya, Syria, Iran, Egypt would be the hiding places for Muslim terrorist of this type of threat.
FTA: In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, You don´t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well. Another says, You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation.
Our government operates more like a thug enterprise every day. Even family members are being frightened into silence.
At the end of this article, it says a State Department e-mail denies that State was involved in transferring any weapons anywhere, but that they could not speak for any other agencies.
Which would leave the CIA as the agency involved in that, as far as we know.
However, previous speculation we´ve seen in reports posted here claimed that the CIA refused to take part in supplying weapons to Libyans opposing Kaddafi, and that the State Department had then done so instead, and that Ambassador Stevens was trying to get those weapons back from the Libyans at the time he was in Benghazi and died.
It´s going to take some doing to sort all this out and get at the real truth... especially since at least two biggies... O-Bomber and Hill-err-ee-ass Herself... don´t want any of it to come out.
If only Anthony Weiner had been our ambassador to Libya at that time. Many of our problems would have been (perhaps) solved... And the explanation for Weiner´s assault and murder would have been... Al Queda elements resisted having his surface to air missile exposed to them.
NOW I am seeing a light bulb go off.. Johnnie Boehner will NOT allow a select committee to investigate Benghazi...what did Obama promise Boehner to quash this? Boehner needs to be removed..or resign, I don´t care which..he needs to spend more time with his family. s/
If you think about it...why was there a drone there...where was Obama....where was Clinton...who made the decision to let these folks fend for themselves...who double-crossed the Libyans...what was Morsi´s involvement...what was the Turkish diplomat doing there...was Stevens being setup to be kidnapped...Tom Clancy wouldn´t have written this as plausible...yet all of this seems entirely plausible...and now the CIA are taking the double-secret-probation lie detector tests....good Lord
Almost nothing about this on CNN until Mr. Jake Tapper made the switch to CNN from ABC. Could this actually be serious reporting? At the bottom of the article there is a suggestion to view a CNN special on Benghazi next Tuesday night. We´ll see with that report whether or not CNN is serious about its Benghazi reportage.
Meanwhile, Obama goes around doing campaign stops and the robots continue to applaud him and treat him like a rock star. Dumb, dumb, dumb people. How can we take another torturous three years? Please, let Obama resign because he is tired. He looks tired, and he acts tired. And we the people are sooo tired of him.
Gateway Pundit has the video of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who was on with Greta Van Susteren last night to discuss the Obama scandals. He said the Obama Administration is hiding the survivors, dispersing them around the country, AND changing their names.
“Including changing names, creating aliases. Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names.”
It takes 17 years to break a cover up backed by a president as demonstrated by recent news reports on the downing of flight 800. It has been believed that if a lot of people are in on the secret it would leak out. Not any more it seems. After that time what difference does it make!
My cynical spirit tells me that CNN´s revelation about Benghazi is a set up. the truth of Benghazi cannot be allowed ro be traced back to Obama or Hillary. I believe the CIA will take the fall for this. After all, everyone knows it is a "rogue" agency doing things under the radar so to speak. It will be found out that there are rogue elements that have been, unbeknownst to our dear, kind and caring president, moving arms around the Middle East. Obama will be shocked and will assure the American people that HE will get to the bottom of this so it will never happen again. Case closed. Questions answered. Move on.
A puzzling possibility... Benghazi happened the same time the phony riots happened in Egypt. IIRC, those riots happened after a Muslim Brotherhood visit to the White House. After the so called riots, Egypt was given billions in aid. Miraculously the riots stopped. I believe the Mohammed video story was cooked up in advance. What Obama had to gain by collusion with the unrest in Egypt is unknown. However, they stuck to their script and even attempted to explain away Benghazi with it. I believe Benghazi was unrelated to the Egypt "riots". I´ve said here before that facts seemed to point to a CIA op gone bad. We´ll see.
Congress seems to be where all truths go to die while this administration creates new and false history . obama and hillary greeting the very real body bags and speaking to the families while manufacturing lies to cover up the truth that it was their fault makes me ill.
Along the line of #9´s post, perhaps chemical weapons were used by the opposition and perhaps they had our finger prints upon them. All speculation of course but behavior such as we have seen suggests something rather significant was going on above and beyond simply manipulating the optics for the election.
Out of control against the People, IRS, NSA, CIA, BATF, even masked military arming of our own local police busting into homes with no warrant, jailing, confiscating personal property never to be returned, guilty or innocent, the Nazi-like Feinsteins controlling, indoctrinating, law abiding gun owners, southern borders held wide open for illegal aliens and Islamic terrorists to gain easy entrance, Catholic sanctuary and welfare given all illegals, an ignored vast criminal underworld of armed drug running gangs infiltrating America, Fast & Furious Holder promoting voting fakery without ID. Does this smell of runaway government? Is a Mussolini our muslim President? Top it all off with lobbyist bribing sponsors and a lobbyist bribed Congress, protected 24/7 by a censoring TV media, the blinded Diane Sawyers, Steve Pelleys, Tom Brokaws, looking straight at you from their network studios, not discussing, not investigating any of the above, while daily distracting millions of Americans, avoiding the truth. The stench of Benghazi avoided to protect dictators Obama and Clinton, is yet another terrifying clue of a collapsing series of continuous lies, and a government packed with cowards who will not come out, reveal the truth, fearful of losing incomes, retirements AND THEIR LIVES. John Boehner, Diane Sawyer, anybody in Congress or mainstream media could support the Mark Levins, New Media, bust it all wide open.
Working off of Tapper´s article, The Conservative Treehouse has a lot to say about this today. Dot connecting via articles from the archives. Some of the dots are Turkish president Erdogan, John McCain, etc.
#7 where to begin - the CIA has had its losses of personnel.... They have fewer protections if caught than do the military. I don´t know whether they have any, actually. They get killed all the time and the fact you don´t know about it is a pointer to the further grief of their families. They have ultra courage. The thing is, their families, no? But even at that, they are getting it out, or you would not be reading this article at all. No? so be gentler on them.
Now I´m starting to believe some lDotters who said Obama wanted Ambassador Stevens kidnapped so we could exchange him for one of the Muslim terrorist leaders. That would explain the "stand down" orders & the black ops CIA on the ground to facilitate & observe the capture of Stevens. Only both sides fought too hard & he died of smoke inhalation.
Starting. Because gun running is another scenario. This stinks to high heaven & that is good for stopping Hillary. Maybe those four men died to save our nation. It´s certainly better than dying for nothing & being stashed under the rug forever.
Excuse me, but does any L-Dotter remember reading a Lucianne.com poster make these points in those early hours and days? I apologize for not reading through all the comments here first today.....
But this is not a surprise to me. And the only place I would have read this already was here..... that there were 3 dozen people there, that there was a CIA outpost in Tripoli, which is where most of them were, that the operation under way was gun running of the Libyan weapons WE supplied to the Libyan rebels, to the newly developing Syrian rebels, through Turkey. And that the security ops who were ultimately killed disobeyed stand-down orders to help try to save the Ambassador and his crew? And that THAT´s why no one came to rescue THEM? Not even after SEVEN HOURS?!
Why Christopher Stevens was meeting with the - uh oh - TURKISH AMBASSADOR there in Benghazi was not known, or else I have forgotten it. But wasn´t it reported here at that time that Stevens was negotiating to get those weapons BACK? Or perhaps that he threatened to blow the lid off this operation, and so was set up? A Fast and Furious operation on a global scale in the Mideast, gone wrong.
I did not imagine all this, and I´m not learning about it new, now - I´m remembering it.
The near-continual polygraphing is new, however. Did we assassinate Qaddafi (but give ´credit´ to ´rebels´)? I recall Calypso Louie being VERY upset that Brother Barack had taken any part at all in offing Brother Moammar....
First Egypt, then Libya and the rest of North Africa. Now apparently we´re closing in on Israel, with a little of mainland and west Africa tossed in there. Worldwide Caliphate, here we come.
# 45 is spot on. The CIA has covert , paramilitary operatives stationed around the world ( SAD ) who have to know Barry will never have their back and will hang them out to dry in a minute. Like Johnny Mike Spann . He was a CIA operative working with the Norther Alliance just after 9/11. He was killed in the prison uprising in Mazar-i-Sharif Afghanistan on November 21, 2001. It took 7 days to for US and British Specials Forces, with air support to end the fighting. Unlike Benghazi , reinforcements were sent. The Commander in Chief was not asleep or playing tickle games with Reggie Love. Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton is an excellent book detailing the heroics of the Special Ops and paramilitary CIA operatives who fought on horseback against the Taliban just after 9/11. What a difference in Commanders in Chief. One always had their backs, the other stabs them in the back.
Tyrone´s mothe said we don´t even know how he died. The reporter asked ´can´t you have the body examined,´? She said how can we? He was cremated. So where was that done? who ordered it? and what was thereport that was generated, because there has to be reports. The fureneral hom for my dad made a pint of him being identified and a report being signed. I can´t believe that a funeral directors can be intimidated and jeopardize their license. Subpoena every one involved on that level.
If memory serves, didn´t Patraeus resign just after this? Was the affair thing a cover up to what he knew really happened in Libya? PIAPS and zippy are up to their necks in this thing - someone remind them about how bitchy karma can be.
Methinks it´s just way too, too coincidental that mere hours after CNN posts the CIA story, we have the WH issuing all kinds of red herring alerts about impending Al Q attacks everywhere on everything and everybody. Barry needs to divert attention from the story so he can complete his golfing vacation among the lily white elites at the Vineyard. He should be so thankful this country doesn´t have a Robespierre (circa 1792).
We are --it seems-- on the brink of or in the midst of a Constitutional Crisis... wherein we´ve become a "nation of men and not of Laws", the reverse of what what the Founders designed our Republic to be.
We have got to support the Patriots who are on the ramparts.
We´ve got to exhort the weak-in-the-knees congressional representatives, those trembling in their shoes, unsure of what they really believe, to wake up:
there are traitors, qislings, Fifth Columnists, in their midst, in OUR midst, in the Body Politic, running roughshod.
As far as guessing the future goes, I think #29 nails it....the CIA will take the fall to protect Obama and Hillary. On Benghazi, but probably can´t on the IRS scandal.
As far as "known" events and early rumors go, my memory agrees with that of #48...and I think I read somewhere the the Turkish Ambassador knew about the upcoming operation and warned the Ambassador to clear out his people. However, that Ambassador was (I read long ago) involved in similar operations (yes, CIA-run) in the past and he was in Benghazi instead of Tripoli just to make sure the gun-running went off OK. And then the rebel Libyan forces/Al Qaeda got there first to get the guns.
I think Congress should subpoena whichever CIA members they think knows something and run a polygraph test on them in from of the TV cameras.
They won´t, because the American public will think it is such a charming idea that there might be a call to run polygraph tests on Congress.
My personal opinion of this whole thing is somebody is trying to keep the lid on Benghazi so Hillary can have a "clean" run in 16. Of course I don´t think Obama gives a rat´s patootie about Hillary. Maybe he´s covering his skinny butt.
What we know, think we know, and question here on Lucianne, much of it brilliant, the rest, at least a sincere attempt at the truth .......... is still not enough. There is so much grand deception, so many secret deaths. Go back to Blll and Hillary´s co- presidency. Over 125 of their associates were murdered, suicided, inexplicably died, given bribed coroner examinations, more than 125! It is widely known as "The Clinton Body Count". AKA, quite famously,"The Friends of Hlllary and Bill". Spend a few minutes studying, this grotesque, widely distributed internet truth. It can encourage looking into all the current Hillary and Obama premature, unexplained deaths. They are "in it" together, avoiding Benghazi truth with the visible help of all the blind, non-investigative news actors like Diane Sawyer, Steve Pelley, Brian Williams, Bill O´Reilly, and the invisible help of an army of CIA etc bureaucrats protecting their retirements, jobs and their lives (they don´t want to be on the Hillary Obama Death List, too). Ask Hillary, if she doesn’t consider herself Hussein’s co president, too. The pay off to keep quiet until she runs again. Now we have the ultimate symbolic retreat, closing down the embassies in Islamic controlled countries. Obama is an uncredited traitor, and his betraying commie-like partner, Hillary, is doing more to cover up than even she, ever bargained for. She is forever caught on the sinking Obama Islamic ship of crime.
Earlier Tuesday, NBC News reported that President Barack Obama had shaken hands with Zimbabwean leader Robert Mugabe. However, the UK Telegraph´s Josie Ensor reported that Obama "was asked to take his seat just before reaching Mugabe." Complicating matters, another article in the UK Telegraph also claimed that Obama had shaken hands with Mugabe--in very similar terms to those used in the NBC article. Breitbart News caught the discrepancy--and suddenly the NBC News article was corrected, with no notice. Before: On his way to the rostrum, Obama also shook the hand of Robert Mugabe, the strongman ruler of Zimbabwe, and hugged Dilma Rousseff, the
The budget deal announced Tuesday by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) would boost federal spending by around $65 billion over the next two years. This new spending is offset by increasing user fees, boosting pension contributions by federal employees and the military, and other minor changes. Ryan and Murray also say that the deal will reduce the deficit by $23 billion over the next 10 years. This reduction, however, doesn´t start until 2022. According to a 4-page summary document of the deal obtained by Breitbart News, "[t]he budget proposal saves $28 billion over ten years by requiring
President Obama will extend his mini-amnesty for young illegals, said Cecilia Muñoz, White House director of domestic policy. “As long as this president” is in power, “you will be able to renew your deferred action,” Muñoz told one questioner during an online question-and-answer session on immigration conducted via Skype. So far, Obama’s deputies have granted the two-year “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals” amnesty to at least 567,563 illegals, giving them the right to get jobs in every state, get drivers’ licenses in some states, to enroll in school and to receive government aid. Only 21,162 illegals have been rejected. Roughly 11 million
The White House insisted Wednesday that President Obama’s credibility had not been damaged by the botched rollout of Obamacare, despite a series of recent polls showing his diminished standing with the American public. "I don´t think I agree with that conclusion,” White House deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said of the assertion that fewer Americans trust the president because of broken promises over his signature domestic achievement. However, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of the president’s job performance, driven mainly by the problem-plagued rollout of Obamacare. Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed said Obamacare was
The death of iconic South African leader Nelson Mandela prompted torrents of gushing praise from world leaders and media this week. Mandela was widely depicted as a near-flawless human being. BBC presenter Evan Davis said Mandela ranked near Jesus in the "pantheon of virtue"; Bono said Mandela was "stubborn ´til the end for all the right reasons, it felt like he very nearly outstared his maker." But the truth about Mandela is somewhat more shaded. He will be remembered for his magnificent legacy of racial unification in the aftermath of his release from prison in 1990. Mandela´s critics worried, not unreasonably,
Imagine if a provision in ObamaCare allowed Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to dictate directly to doctors which services they could and could not provide their patients—what individual tests they could conduct, which treatments they could offer, and medicines they could prescribe. Americans would be outraged. Yet some Republicans on Capitol Hill are about to help Democrats pass such a provision for Medicare patients. The Senate Finance Committee is set to vote on permanent "doc-fix" legislation Thursday that grants the federal government broad new authority to determine "applicable appropriate use criteria" for the full range of outpatient medical
Most of Washington seems to have bought the White House claim that the 36 federal exchanges are finally working, and glory, glory, hallelujah. But if that´s really true, then what explains the ongoing secrecy and evasion? On Wednesday the Health and Human Services Department continued its Victorian-era strip tease and allowed a glimpse into the Affordable Care Act´s "enrollment" for November. Out of respect for a free press, reporters ought to boycott these releases because they´re so selective that they reveal little about real enrollment. But we´ll try to parse the data as best we can without the White House high
Federal Spending: The hue and cry over the two-year budget deal masks the real threat facing the country — the vast and potentially permanent expansion of government by President Obama during his first five years in office. Michael Needham, who heads Heritage Action for America, called the budget deal put together by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., and Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., a "step backward." He´s right. The plan relies on some of the worst budget gimmicks around. It boosts spending in the next two years by $63 billion, for example, while spreading the promised $85 billion in cuts over 10 years. But it is,
Revelation: Colin Powell, George W. Bush´s secretary of state, has confirmed the suspicion that derailed his plan to run for president: He´s not just a liberal, but a socialist. It´s been a long time ago now, but Powell was once the dream Republican presidential candidate for a lot of pundits, campaign experts and ordinary Americans who appreciated his outstanding military service and pull-yourself-up-by-the-bootstraps success story. Now we find that Powell is with the extreme left of the Democratic Party on health care, supporting European-style single-payer socialized medicine. "I don´t see why we can´t do what Europe is doing, what Canada is doing, what
Diplomacy: President Obama extended a hearty handshake to Cuba´s iron-fisted dictator Raul Castro just as the latter was beating up dissidents back home on the eve of Human Rights Day. No good will come of this. After six months of secret talks through Cuban emissaries — secrets kept from the American people, not Cuba´s dictatorship — the time seemed right for a flailing U.S. president and a dictator on the skids to shake hands and make nice at Nelson Mandela´s funeral in South Africa. For some shallow observers, it was all about Mandela´s legacy of everyone getting along. But it´s bad for the
So here’s the photo, my photo, which quickly lit up the world’s social networks and news websites. The “selfie” of three world leaders who, during South Africa’s farewell to Nelson Mandela, were messing about like kids instead of behaving with the mournful gravitas one might expect. In general on this blog, photojournalists tell the story behind a picture they’ve taken. I’ve done this for images from Pakistan, and India, where I am based. And here I am again, but this time the picture comes from a stadium in Soweto, and shows people taking a photo of themselves. I guess it’s a
Roberto Schmidt, a German-Colombian photojournalist based in India, saw a moment worth capturing at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service in Soweto, South Africa on Tuesday, and capture it he did: the ‘selfie’ taken by President Barack Obama along with two other world leaders and next to a p1$$3d-off seeming Michelle Obama, immediately went viral. Mediaite sure covered it, as did most internet publications, and by early afternoon it was gristle for cable news commentators on both the left and the right—much to Schmidt’s dismay. “It’s a sign of our times that somehow this image seemed to get more attention than the event
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
