A Deadly Mix in Benghazi
New York Times, by David D. Kirkpatrick

Original Article

Posted By:LComStaff, 12/28/2013 2:21:59 PM

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

The NYT and Kirkpatrick are hand jacking for Hillary for sure. They are setting the stage for her defensive arguments.

Never forget an American diplomat was killed on her watch. The enemy had scoped the area and zeroed their mortars on the compound; therefore, careful planning by the enemy. Request for more security were denied.

Hillary has blood on her hands. "Out damned spot."

FTA: "And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam."

Reading this makes one wonder if it´s yet another obfuscation by 0bama to save PIAPS for 2016. I think it was now about the infighting as to who would control the "promised" KFC & McDonald franchises. Lot of money and laundering to be done with them.

I waded through the first page and came to the conclusion that in a situation where we couldn´t trust anyone, we trusted almost everyone. We had Libyan militia provide security, an unarmed British outfit doing something, and some very serious ex-Seals doing something else when the attack went down.

All the Libyans either abandoned their posts or actively interfered with American forces trying to come to the aid. I have often wondered whether the final attack came after the team from Tripoli was followed to the annex.

Bottom line, muslims lie. Never trust your ears and watch your back. We may never know what happened in Benghazi but we do know that Hillary and Barry refused to add security and refused to send in reinforcements to people dying in the field. We need to keep reminding Americans of that fact if she is brazen and stupid enough to run for POTUS in 2016.

The Times, despite its drastic lack of readership, thinks saying it will make it so (and pave the way for Hillary, I am sure.) We stopped reading the NYTimes about 15 years ago, after never being without it, just because of this kind of naked political news reporting....unfortunately, the Brian Willaims´ of this world still treat it as their Bible. I am positive any of the factual debunking of this excerpt will never make the network news.

The very minute I became aware of this NYT article and the book, I knew it had something to do with Hillary. Many of her followers and worshippers will do whatever they can to smooth the way for her. It´s going to come from many directions, in many forms….by the trainload and the ´bellyful´, for sure.

I do not believe a word of it, or the story this book will try to convey. We´ve already heard from many people who were close to this fiasco, and know better. Again, you Hillaryites, we´re not that stupid.

Foxnews.com has a cover story debunking this BS. Sadly, the truth doesn´t matter. This is what we are up against to defeat Hillary. The conservatives will have to unite, or she will be our next president. The media will do everything imaginable to get her elected. But they can´t beat us if we are united.

Reading this article caused a terrible stench to fill my home from all the BS it was spewing. I really couldn´t believe that someone, anyone, would try to pass off this story about a video that no one has seen would have caused the Benghazi attack. And that Al Qaeda wasn´t involved in the attack. I was under the impression that all of that was discounted not long after the attack. And by truthful institutions. But, the NYT must have the greatest "investigative reporters" on the planet. And it only took 15 months to do so. /s

The High Ministry of Propaganda starts here, along with
60 Minutes. A few weeks ago 60 Minutes did a Benghazi " the real story" without mentioning the name of either Hitlary or Barry.. This NYSlimes piece is part of a pattern to establish quotes to defend the murders. The commie cabal is desperate to get rid of this burden of Benghazi lies. Both perpetrators are equally responsible for this murderous catastrophe, and both must be held to account for this DOUBLE evasion. One or both of these two destroyers of America could have stopped this brutal betrayal, and both turned a blind eye to the safety of our men. We have two revolutionary communists in our bombsights, both of them attempting to collapse this
great nation into servitude. Both need to be impeached Oh, that´s right right, the murderess Hitlary was already impeached as co-president.
These are desperate, vengeful people. Never forget!

A transparent attempt to sew up and darn the the pantsuit so seriously unraveled by Benghazi. As it turned out, you see, Benghazi made a big difference... in the 2016 polling. The Dems are all about fooling people and the corrupt news media is simpatico and happy to lend a hand in the foolery. The truth renders Dems unelectable.

The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

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

And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday.
