Obama Administration´s Benghazi Bombshell
Weekly Standard, by Thomas Joscelyn

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/7/2014 11:26:05 PM

The Washington Post reports that U.S. officials suspect Sufian Ben Qumu, an ex-Guantanamo detainee, “played a role in the attack on the American compound in Benghazi, Libya, and are planning to designate the group he leads as a foreign terrorism organization.” Ben Qumu is based in Derna, Libya and runs a branch of Ansar al Sharia headquartered in the city. U.S. officials have found that some of Ben Qumu’s militiamen from Derna “participated in the attack” and “were in Benghazi before the attack took place on Sept. 11, 2012.” Ben Qumu was fingered early on as a suspect in the

But I thought it was the You Tube video that instigated all of this?! You mean to tell me now that this was a well planned in advance terrorist attack by a terrorist that was released from Gitmo? Wow! You sure about that? Man oh man, what next.

This doesn´t make any sense. Why would the administration torpedo the NYT article that went to such great lengths to cover for Hill and Obie denying an al Qeada link? This wasn´t buried on a Friday before a long weekend, but placed front and center of the news cycle.

Makes me wonder if they are trying to get out in front of some damaging information. The problem with that theory is that absolutely nothing has stuck to this president or administration to this point, so why bother now? They have every expectation, rightly so, that the msm will cover for them.

Is this a "Look squirrel!" attempt to cover something bigger?

Even if Bush released this alleged ringleader of the attack,it was probably done to get left wing naggers off his back.At the same time it proves that releasing these people back to their home countries,is a failed act of goodwill gesture.

Its pretty convenient how the main culprit,happened to fall under Bush´s term.Even if it´s true it´s no excuse for Hillary turning down requests for more security,rescue people being told to stand down and Obama´s disappearance on the night of the attack.

Panetta was stranded as a person in between and high tailed it back to Cal. as soon as he could.Stacks of secret love letters by Petraeus just happened to turn up to shut him up.

In WWII these types were executed by firing squad on the battlefield. Oh yes; and that was the last war we won. Coincidence? I think not. It was the last war that liberals or states were not in leadership of the military. And the last war where we cared what happened to our citizens.

The way forward is clear: Gitmo must be closed and its prisoners brought to the US mainland so their commute times are shorter when planning and committing terrorist acts.

Oh #8 that´s funny - thanks for a morning laugh.

#7 is right about the last war the USA won being WWII. Truman was President and gave the OK to drop the A-Bomb. Now our Presidents would never consider such an action because it would be mutually destructive. But there shouldn´t be any hold back on winning by conventional means - it just takes dedication to the mission, which we don´t seem to have once a new President comes to power - ala Obama.

If we don´t grow some gonads soon, the Muzzies are going to spread like the plague that they are to all of Western Europe and then to the U.S. I lay the blame at Obama´s feet, since he famously said in his book Audacity of Hope “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” Anyone who thinks it wasn´t a green light to the Muslim world when Obama was elected in 2008, needs to remove their blinders.

From Wikipedia (for what that´s worth):

"Qumu was reported to have been released in October 2007. He was transferred to Libya on 28 September 2007 and was released from Abu Salim prison in 2010 following an amnesty for political prisoners."

Considering all they knew about him at the time, one has to ask why he was let out of Gitmo.

#3, you mistake Obama´s intentions. He does not WANT Hillary as the next president. He wants a REPUBLICAN president. He will then be the permanent ´community organizer´ in Washington, whipping up his legions in hatred against the Republicans. Remember, he only knows how to do one thing, and that is not supporting another person who is more important than he. Mark my words: he will see that Hillary is not the president, nor any other dem, but will feign support for their candidate. The worst thing that could happen to him, in his eyes, would be a dem president.

Supreme Court upholds Michigan’s
ban on racial preferences
in university admissions
Washington Post, by Robert Barnes    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/22/2014 10:09:17 PM     Post Reply
The Supreme Court on Tuesday made clear that states are free to prohibit the use of racial considerations in university admissions, upholding Michigan’s constitutional amendment banning affirmative action. By a vote of 6 to 2, the court concluded that it was not up to judges to overturn the 2006 decision by Michigan voters to bar consideration of race when deciding who gets into the state’s universities. The ruling could encourage other states to join the handful that have such prohibitions, including California and Florida. Higher-education officials have warned that those states have seen a decline in the number of minorities

Court rules Obama administration

The Obama administration must release internal legal documents justifying the targeted killings worldwide of Americans and foreigners suspected of terrorism, a federal appeals court ruled Monday. The decision in a case brought by The New York Times, two of its reporters and the American Civil Liberties Union likely will shed new light on the administration’s use of drones to target terrorists abroad. That program has resulted in the deaths of American citizens, such as leading al Qaeda figure Anwar al-Awlaki, killed by a drone strike in Yemen in 2011. Administration officials had sought to keep internal memorandums regarding the killings

Massachusetts representative Stephen Lynch isn’t just worried about the negative impact Obamacare will have on his party’s performance this fall — he also thinks its worst effects on our health-care system are still to come. Lynch, who voted against the Affordable Care Act in 2010, warned that the situation is “going to hit the fan” when the law’s delayed provisions go into effect down the road. “There are parts of Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act, that were postponed because they are unpalatable,” he told Boston Herald Radio.

In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

Long-term unemployed struggle

For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.
