Jihadists from at least four Al Qaeda
groups in on Benghazi attack

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 1/19/2014 11:56:29 PM

The militants who gathered on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, to torch and kill inside the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, were a who’s who of the modern al Qaeda movement, newly declassified documents show. Since its attacks on the U.S. in 2001, al Qaeda has worked to establish partners outside its base in Pakistan, especially in North Africa and the new fertile territory of eastern Libya and the port city of Benghazi. All of al Qaeda’s work converged that night in Benghazi, according to a bipartisan report last week by the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. Global

Try to remember the American citizens begging for help that night when Shillary wants your vote in 2016.

But what about the You Tube video? You mean all that was a big fat lie? A lie with the intention of deceiving voters and winning an upcoming election? Totally cool then. Whatever it takes.

When Dear Leader went to the UN and apologised for the provocatively Islamophobic video that caused the attack in Benghazi by stating "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of islam", well - case closed. And what´s more, he did not ask anyone in his administration to lie, not a single time.

He gets away with whatever the GOP allows him to get away with. And so far, that´s everything.

Gee, who knew the new word for the economy was Al Qaeda...

Meanwhile, Al Qaeda must be referring to this as Benghazi-fest 2012!

Knowingly lying to the families of the dead is just about as low as you can go. These two didn´t bat an eyelash. They willingly, knowingly lied to grieving families for the sole purpose of profiting politically by doing so. People with a moral compass do not do this. This is reprehensible behavior by the President and Secretary of State. In every interview or at every press conference someone should ask them why they chose to lie to these grieving families. They should be forced to answer. If they had the guts to lie, they should have the courage to explain why.

I can´t watch video of the hangar ceremony where the bodies of our four patriots were received without being nauseated. It was obvious to me then--and has since been amply verified--that our POTUS and SOS were lying through their teeth (while preening for the cameras.)Benghazi is a terrible, terrible tragedy--and its aftermath a disgrace. Willfully lying to Americans is awful enough; what required the lying is no doubt even worse, but with our pathetic kneepad media and impotent congress, we will never know the latter.

Some ´nobody´ made a short film about obamas idol that nobody saw, and he paid a bigger price than any of the murdering muslims that attacked our embassy. This could only happen with the cooperation of the knee-pad media.

But, ´´What difference at this point does it make?”

Since I haven´t watched any news, in years, on any of the major networks or cnn, msnbc...just Fox, I would be surprised if any of them, including, the print msm, are doing much reporting on the new Benghazi revelations over the past month or so. I get most of my news over the internet and I fear that the conservatives are the only folks, who are being encouraged that justice might still prevail in Benghazi...I hope I am wrong. I can´t imagine the msm actually reporting on this matter or any matter to the detriment of Obama or Clinton.

For decades, American patriots have been more than willing to go into harm´s way to help their fellow Americans keep and enjoy their freedom. One day soon, these Americans will begin to realize that their government and many of their fellow citizens just aren´t worth it, especially the low-class residents of the White House. When asked to put their lives on the line for this trash, they will "just say no."

Kinda like "follow the money" in Watergate, now we need to follow the talking points. So far we now know it went into the heart of the WH. The IC KNEW it was a terrorist attack that night, and according to this report, they "failed to correct" the false video statement. Who and why did they not say anything? And I thought from previously released memos and emails, we know those responsible for changing the wording of Rice´s statement. How hard can it be to connect the last few dots?

The only real difference we can make at this point is to destroy Hillary´s evil designs.

NOT to worry...
in his latest pronouncement our Maximum Leader has educated us with the sure knowledge that the current al-Qaeda is made of "jay-vee" players, not "Kobe Bryant[s]".

Yes...the "jay-vee" burned our Bengazhi mission to the ground, was arguably lead by former Guantanamo Bay detainees that had fought in Afghan/Pakistan with Bin Laden, killed an American Ambassador and dragged his body around yelling Allah Akbar.

But as our "Congenital Liar" Former SecState Hillary C. has preached "What difference does that make now?".

You gotta ask yourself, how do these people sleep at night? The only answer I can come up with is that they are devoid of any morals, and don´t really give a hoot about anyone other then themselves.

Obama is subjecting the American institution to a "death by a thousand cuts". He has an untold number of fronts open. Islamization in the Middle East is one of them. Each front provides a distraction for the others. The press is used daily to throw chaff. It would take a 3,000 ft war room to keep track.

Benghazi must be compartmentalized and dealt with using the facts we have. The various factions of Al Qaeda present refutes the NYT article but gets us no closer to what actually happened that night. As I have said before, I believe it was bigger than Obama and crossed party lines.

Count the scandals. They are now in the hundreds. Each day more are revealed. The real challenge now is to choose our battles. A thousand cuts are overwhelming.

# 17 posts the most revolting revelation from the New Yorker piece.
The Commander in Chief and sullen " POUTUS " believes that Al Queda is just some dinky JV squad.
I assume he´s not referencing some rapper ( Jay -V ? ), but, one never knows.
Yeah-the JV squad that Barry so blithely dismisses has killed a record number of US troops in Afghanistan ,
in addition to the four Americans in Benghazi ,
since Barry became
the TV Watcher In Chief.
GW Bush 8 years in Afghanistan - 486 US troops KIA
Barry´s 5 years - 1678 US troops KIA ,
plus 264 in Iraq and the 4 deaths in Benghazi.
To his credit, George Stephanopoulos lists the names of the latest US casualties at the end of his Sunday show each week.
People magazine also does a year end listing of the year´s military casualties.
Shame on Robert Gates for protecting this bum for so long.

I firmly believe that history will not be kind to Obama. He has just about used up any good feelings that naive or uninformed voters, a large number of whom are white, had for him. The fact that American voters enthusiastically looked past skin color twice without any hesitation should put an end to the left´s accusations of racism of anyone who disagrees with Obama´s policies.

Also, I do believe that most people will now simply close their ears anytime that the dirty word "racism" is attempted to be used against anyone who disagrees with Obama or his policies. American voters aren´t going to tolerate much longer what has taken place on Obama´s watch - the loss of millions of jobs, the loss of health insurance by millions of people, and the slow-growth economy over the last five years. Add to those negatives, the lying about issues great and small - Benghazi, a prime example.

Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/11/2014 10:35:30 PM     Post Reply
Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

The Obama administration said Friday that it would block Iran’s nominee as ambassador to the United Nations from entering the United States, setting up a new confrontation with Tehran just as relations with the Islamic republic appeared to be improving. The decision to bar entry to the diplomat, who was allegedly involved in the 1979 seizure of the U.S. Embassy in Tehran, followed intense political pressure on the administration from Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill. But it also marked a rare instance in which Washington has effectively vetoed another country’s preferred choice as envoy to the United Nations. Iran

Struggling homeowners across the country could face significant new tax bills if they receive mortgage relief from their banks, a prospect that threatens to slow the housing recovery and put further strain on distressed borrowers. The collapse of the housing market and plunging home prices left millions of people stuck owing more on their mortgages than their homes were worth. Some have worked with their banks to reduce the loan amount to avoid foreclosure or enable a sale. In 2007, Congress adopted a law that spared those homeowners from being taxed on the amount of the loan that was forgiven. But

On Thursday, Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius resigned her position. The New York Times reported the resignation as a punishment for failure: Officials said Ms. Sebelius, 65, made the decision to resign and was not forced out. But the frustration at the White House over her performance had become increasingly clear, as administration aides worried that the crippling problems at HealthCare.gov, the website set up to enroll Americans in insurance exchanges, would result in lasting damage to the president’s legacy. So Sebelius stuck around just long enough to reach the mythical 7 million enrollment number

The House Oversight Committee has voted to hold former IRS subpotentate Lois Lerner in contempt of Congress, while the House Ways and Means Committee has referred her case to the Justice Department for criminal prosecution. The facts in the case suggest very strongly that Ms. Lerner has earned the contempt of the American people as well as criminal prosecution to the full extent of the law. The question of whether Justice will do justice now rests with the Obama administration, in service to which Ms. Lerner organized and oversaw the repression of nonprofit activists under color of IRS authority.

With the rocky rollout of his health care law in a post-deadline lull, President Obama will move this week to shake up his health care team, accepting the resignation of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and tapping his budget director as a troubleshooting replacement, the White House confirmed Thursday. Mrs. Sebelius, a former Kansas governor who has served as HHS secretary for Mr. Obama’s entire tenure, was the president’s point person as his signature law stumbled out of the blocks in October. Despite calls for her to be fired, Mrs. Sebelius stayed on the job to oversee a

A few weeks ago, with no notice, the U.S. government intercepted Mary Grice’s tax refunds from both the IRS and the state of Maryland. Grice had no idea that Uncle Sam had seized her money until some days later, when she got a letter saying that her refund had gone to satisfy an old debt to the government — a very old debt. When Grice was 4, back in 1960, her father died, leaving her mother with five children to raise. Until the kids turned 18, Sadie Grice got survivor benefits from Social Security to help feed and clothe them.

Two months ago, a petition bearing more than 110,000 signatures was delivered to The Post, demanding a ban on any article questioning global warming. The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual. But I was gratified by the show of intolerance because it perfectly illustrated my argument that the left is entering a new phase of ideological agitation — no longer trying to win the debate but stopping debate altogether, banishing from public discourse any and all opposition.

Attorney General Eric Holder must be suffering from a sort of amnesia. He is upset at supposed divisiveness and rudeness directed at him when testifying before Congress, and suggests not too subtly that he and President Obama have been accorded inordinately harsh treatment (fill in the blanks why). Aside from the fact that he seemed to have relished the combat with Representative Gohmert in quite unprofessional tones (“you don’t want to go there, buddy, alright?”/ “good luck with your asparagus”), he seems to forget what former attorney general Alberto Gonzales once endured both in the liberal media and before Democrats

If you have not yet heard, Brandeis University has rescinded its offer of an honorary degree to Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-born activist whose work has focused on the barbaric misogyny rampant in Islamic societies like the one in which she was raised—and whose efforts to call attention to them as a legislator in the Netherlands led to a political crisis there and her eventual flight to the United States.

When Chief Justice John Roberts rewrote ObamaCare from the bench in order to save it, most of the ramifications were immediately apparent. But there was one aspect of the stunt that as a member of the Supreme Court Roberts should have been sensitive to: precedent. Having caved to a public intimidation campaign from the president and his congressional allies (as well as the media) Roberts signaled that the way to get a conservative justice to discard his better judgment and rule against constitutional law was to impugn the court’s reputation in the public square.

The son of the Nevada rancher locked in an increasingly tense land dispute with the federal government, says their cowboys managed to break a blockade and retrieve around 30 head of cattle. Federal agents swooped on Tuesday after Cliven Bundy, dubbed the last remaining rancher in southern Nevada, refused to remove his herd of 900 cows from land he claims has been in his family since 1870.

Big Government: As students flood Twitter with images of inedible slop, it´s clear that Michelle Obama´s government school lunch revamp is a costly failure. It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.

The reason: the first lady´s Healthy Hunger-free Kids Act, an act that has accomplished exactly the opposite of what it claimed it would — leaving hungry, angry, disgusted kids and dumpsters full of wasted

Roughly 29pc of electricity capacity added in America last year came from solar, rising to 100pc even in Massachusetts and Vermont.[Snip] The technology is improving so fast--helped by the US military--that it has achieved a virtous circle.

Nearly a year into the IRS scandal, we still don´t know exactly what happened—though we are finally getting an inkling. That´s thanks to the letter House Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp sent this week to the Justice Department recommending a criminal probe of Lois Lerner. The average citizen might be dizzied by the torrent of confusing terms—BOLO lists, Tigta, 501(c)(4)—and the array of accusations that have made up this IRS investigation.
