Obama Administration in
Pre-Edited Talking Points:
Al Qaeda Behind Benghazi Attack

Breitbart Big Peace, by Matthew Boyle

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/30/2013 11:33:03 PM

The recent New York Times article attempting to downplay terrorist involvement in the Benghazi attack that claimed the lives of four Americans on Sept. 11, 2012, directly contradicts evidence in the now infamous pre-edited talking points of then-United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. “Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault,” David D. Kirkpatrick wrote in the Times. “The attack was led, instead, by

This wasn´t a spontaneous combustion event.It probably took weeks or even months to plan this.Alqueda has become nothing but a catch all word for terrorists who don´t fit another organized group.

Whether it was Alqueda or not doesn´t have a damn thing to do with Hillary ignoring requests for more security,in fact she claims she never saw a request.If that´s the truth then somebody should have been fired for not telling her.

There´s more than one person who knows the truth about this but Obama has a form of blackmail hanging over their heads.

If this was just a simple case of getting caught with their pants down then why not just admit the failure instead of all these kabuki dances around the subject.Why fire Petraeus?

The NY Slimes tried to white wash the Butcher of Benghazi. Nice try; no cigar.

"If you tell a lie long and loud enough, people will eventually start to believe it." -- Adolph Hitler?

That´s what´s going on here. They are going to insist that the video was partly at fault and that Hillary was pure as the wind-driven snow.

When you have actual witnesses to what went on speaking out and saying that Benghazi was a case of deliberate neglect of our people over there, and when they also say that requests for help were consistently ignored over the years, it´s very hard to believe this revisionist rot.

Benghazi was not infiltrated by Al Qaeda, but nonetheless contained grave local threats to American interests. The attack does not appear to have been meticulously planned, but neither was it spontaneous or without warning signs.

What other choices are there? Was it simply NOT "meticulously" planned but just sorta planned? Was it WITH "warning signs"? In any case, the results were devastating and so far, four of our people were killed, promises were made to "bring the perpetrators to justice, which hasn´t happened. Furthermore, the KNOWN perp is walking the streets a free man over there.

How is a sane person supposed to defend any of this with a straight face, especially in light of Hillary´s outburst, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Over the course of the next two hours, CIA officials edited the talking points to remove the reference to al Qaeda.

Even if Al Qaeda was not directly responsible under its own name (and I am not saying that´s the case), extremist Islamists carried out a planned, coordinated, well-armed deadly raid.

....and no one is held responsible, especially Hillary whose duty it was to see that protection was afforded our people in Benghazi and elsewhere. It was her job. She flunked.

When highly paid media propagandists cross up other
propagandists, highly paid, or not, highly brainwashed, or not, there is bound to be a confusion and massive disbelief created right before our truth seeking eyes ! The Hilary press and TV indoctrinators are desperately trying to erase the four murders directly attributable to Hilary´s State Department responsibilities.
In direct proportion to the gravity of her outrageous omissive acts, they are all PROTESTING TOO MUCH !

What is certain, Hilary´sBenghaziCrime WILL NOT GO AWAY. The real world finds her guilty of complicit murder and cover up, and unfit for any public office.

#5 "The real world finds her guilty of complicit murder and cover up, and unfit for any public office." I would like to think this is true but the "real world" doesn´t include the Democratic Party or many Independents. She has a very good chance of being the next President because the msm will get all this Benghazi attack settled long before the election never to be heard of again anywhere near November 2016. In addition no questions will be asked about Benghazi during any of the debates. the Democrats and msm will make sure of that. As one Lucianne poster said the most admired dead people in 2013 are the four that were killed in Benghazi! How I loath the msm especially the NY Times.

If we ever do find out what was really going on in Benghazi leading up to the attack ( weapons to Syria, a deal for the Blind Sheik, etc ) and find out what really happened that night....I hope it explodes in the media right around 10/1/16.

There must be pushback on every article written and every word uttered that wants us to believe anything but the facts regarding Benghazi. Hillary is making a big effort to see if she can put this fire out before she makes the decision to run. If she is unable to convince people that she is innocent, there is no way she will put herself out there. However, if she believes that she and her media lackeys can change the narrative, her political ambition will compel her to run. We must drive a stake in the heart of her Benghazi lie once and for all. Let down for a second and she will be the next president. We must demand the truth. Hillary must be held accountable for Benghazi. If she is, she is dead politically.

They couldn´t plan the attack in detail because they did not know when the ambassador would be spending the night there. So, part of it had to be on the spur of the moment.

The boneheaded Clinton never deals in the real world of responsibility. For this very limited woman it is propaganda all the time coupled with dirty dealings to make money. She is a simple-minded, self-serving fantasist. The goofballs that come up with lame excuses like the phoney video story have certainly shown their disregard for reality and a great disrespect for the intelligence of people.

This fool Clinton can get away with virtually anything because the pussyfooting politicians are only interested in playing inside ball in the corridors of Washington. Nothing could be more obvious than that a planned attack was made in Benghazi and the White House refused to do anything to stop it. Now, that shouldn´t be too hard to say should it? Forget the motivation, just punish those responsible by exposing them and by taking whatever legal action is available. Forget the "he said", "she said" game. It is a distraction.

Agree with previous posters. At this point what difference does it make.. whether it was Al Queda or an offshoot group of TERRORIST? They still planned it and killed our people. And the CIA and the WH and the State Dept all conspired in the coverup.

Dont wait for 2016 to drop a bombshell.. lets get this PIAP banished from our government now.
Time for some members to have the guts to have Watergate style hearings, and put a stake in the heart of this corrupt group now.

The above stupid statement by Vietor has probably been made countless times throughout history. Anytime you put incompetents in charge of serious business, people are going to get killed. Guaranteed.

We desperately need the survivors to take one for their country and speak out. Easy for me to say I know. However, we need them to speak out at the right time so it isn´t "old news" by the election. You know how fickle we are as a nation and how well the spin machine mops up the mess.

I can almost forgive the failure to prevent this event as normal Gubment SNAFU.

What I will NEVER forgive is the failure to scramble all available forces to protect an ambassador and an American complex under fire.

Leon Pannetta, while masquerading as Sec. Def. actually said:"We didn´t send anyone in because we thought it might be dangerous."

This guy really doesn´t ´get´ the whole USMC thingee.....does he ?

To say that Al Qaeda was not behind the Benghazi attack is like saying the NFL is not behind the Super Bowl. What´s going on now is massive brainwashing which will leave a huge shred of doubt among the true believers in Her Wideness the Fresh Princess of Pantsuits in her quest to be President. This is talking point planting in the brain dead minds of the left that believe everything they are told.

The new york times! Incredible! This is, perhaps, the most egregious media lie in my lifetime and I am 68 years old. That a "major" opinion influence could be this brazen in presenting a story so obviously untrue, so completely discredited, so frightfully dishonest is every bit as rotten as anything Goebbels or Hitler ever did.

Many things in this country have gone down hill during my years on this planet, but no segment of life has sunk to the depths as has what we used to call "journalism". I regret having brought my children into a world as corrupted as the world inhabited by the new york times.

There must be at least one honest person in Washington. Why won´t that person come forward and provide the information so that this whole episode is in the open. We´re intelligent enough to accept the truth. What threats are so great that the one (or more) person will get the truth in front of America. Maybe America doesn´t exist any more. So sad.

Two points:

Kirkpatrick identified the terrorists as Ansar Al Sharia yet denies AlQaeda was involved.
That is ludicrous as Ansar Al Sharia was founded by Osama BinLaden who was Al Qaeda. Ansar Al Sharia is an AlQaeda organization that Bin Laden felt its very name would inflame Muslims against the USA ...as the name implies -to be against Muslim Sharia Law. Kirkpatrick as the NYT´s Cairo station head knows and is well aware of that fact.

The video was not released internationally until 12 hours after the attack in Benghazi on YouTube.. thus had no impact whatsoever to have caused terrorism.

The fact the NYT´s article was released seems to have been to cause a firestorm ...making one wonder what is on the horizon...that this distraction has been presented. These Marxists in our WH and at Justice are very dangerous and disturbed.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. 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

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
