The White House’s Benghazi
bungling is proving a disaster

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

President Obama hasn’t even begun his second term yet, but his administration is already struggling with a huge credibility problem on the Benghazi front. Watch this video posted today at The Weekly Standard, which shows White House Press Secretary Jay Carney telling National Journal correspondent Major Garrett that Obama “is not particularly concerned” whether Susan Rice misled the American people in a series of talk show interviews following the killing of US Ambassador Christopher Stephens and three other US personnel in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11. Carney told the assembled White House press corps: What the president is worried about,

...it´s sad when one has to go to the British press to make sure they are not going crazy. Saw the video of Carney earlier in the day. Could not believe the ´tude that was projected...

...I know they have only had 2 1/2 months since, but I would love to know exactly where and with who the president was with during the events. That could give great clarity to the debacle...

...everything else including Petraeus is so much window dressing. Watergate was a little story at election time. It took til the following summer to blow apart. I trust that in today´s world, it won´t take quite as long...

The new crisis will come, Benghazi will be forgotten in the smoke of the new crisis. Democrats now rule, so, we´ll just have to ´Move On´ like we did past the Clinton cigar/blue dress/lies debacle. Don´t you people get it? Democrats have the reigns of our government, now. So- what do you expect will happen?

Is it true that there were 2 or 3 more attacks in the following week?
I didn´t see it in the MSM, but caught a fleeting spot on the radio.

The President may not be ´´particularly concerned´´ that Susan Rice lied to several TV talkshow panels, but if he nominates her for Secretary of State and she lies to Congress under oath during her confirmation hearings, she will be committing perjury and could end up in jail.

That may not ´´particularly concern´´ the President either, but if Ms. Rice testifies at her trial that the President asked her to lie to Congress, the President could be convicted of suborning perjury, and that might finally cause the President a little concern.

We´re learning now that Rice tried to help cover up the Rwanda slaughter during the Clinton administration when Clinton was taking heat for not doing anything about the matter. She´s just not to be trusted.

Something that has been completely forgotten in all this is what happened in Cairo. OK, maybe that riot was the result of outrage over ´the video´, but if you recall, mob participants scaled our Enbassy walls there, pulled down our American flag, burned it, and raised up their own al qaeda flag, all the while shouting ´´Obama! We are Osama!´´

It was there, prior to the events in Benghazi, that our Marines were ordered also to STAND DOWN.

That Embassy WAS staffed by a Marines guard - why were they ordered to stand down in Cairo?

It was SEPTEMBER 11, for God´s sake!

I still firmly believe these events were set in motion intentionally, by forces who wanted to use this ´outrage´ to their advantage for other reasons - not the religion of pieces. Who could that be.......?

Other than that, no big deal.

P.S. Explosive stuff, #7! I missed it at the time - wish I´d seen it when it was first new. Susan Rice is an unmitigated one-woman disaster for the U.S.!

A couple of coinkydinks to ponder:

1. Does anyone else notice that Susan Rice looks A LOT like Eric Holder?

2. The Ambassador to the Sudan in the Clinton years referred to in #7´s link was Tim Carney. Any relation to the #1 PressBoy?

We could have a video of one of these bozos in the White House committing a crime and we would be told it was taken out of context, not exactly as it seems, too complicated to understand but wise people are meeting and examining and there is nothing of concern. They are getting bolder.

"is not particularly concerned" and so was a majority (however slim) of the American voting public lst Novemebr 6, 2012.

Rice pushed to get US involvement in Libya to prevent genocide - remember that was Obama´s justification for ignoring Congress to start the air war against Ghaddafi. I suspect that in some ways, Ms. Rice has been much more engaged in foreign policy than her boss, Hillary, who has been busy on her world wine tasting tour.

I don`t think Benghazi has been a disaster for Obama. He has been skating on this issue like all the other issues. Nothing can touch this guy. Others may be hammered over it but Barack continues on his marxist way seemingly unconcerned. After all, he won reelection so the public at large didn`t seem to care about it either. Also, the GOP has been unable/unwilling or just plain asleep at the wheel with regard to using this issue to gain an upper hand on the fiscal cliff/tax issues.

Susan Rice and Hillary Clinton do not like each other. Why? Susan Rice´s new job at the UN was a thorn in Hillary´s side. There was some competition there as there were dualing offices at State. That may not have happened, but the more we find out about Susan Rice the better it is for our country. We know Hillary is a huge Lefty. Susan is, too. The State Dept is full of them because I know a couple. Start digging for info, because this is going to get ugly. They are all incomptetnts pretending that they are the opposite.

Obama´s not concerned about Susan because he knows she will lie for him at every turn. Apparently Hillary will not lie anymore for him. What´s a faithful Commie to do? Send out someone that will. Susan got the job with the promise that she would be SOS. Is this a great country, or what?

What millions call, "the left", and even more fools call "liberals", are all Democrats (and much too many Republicans) promoting socialism, fascism and communism. For many stealth decades, the media, all of academe, quietly laying in all the language and indoctrination of cultural Marxism, destroying individualism, like an as yet undiscovered cancer. There are no exceptions. There are two Obama stories. One is what actually happened. The other: what Obama, comrades and 90% of the media instruct us (brainwash us), on what happened. Indoctrination. What we get is the cowardly blindsiding of the four deaths in Benghazi, done effectively by the complicit protectorate of the Diane Sawyers, TV Mafia Media thugs, the elite limo media that follows all Party Line orders. Their uniformly omissive watch dog press, gave Obama an already crooked election. Call them rigid followers of The Party Line, right out of Hitler & Stalin. This one grand omitting distortion saved his fraudulent election. Is the carelessly promising Obama, a second Hitler? Are the protective propaganda Sawyers, another Goebells ?

Anyone who has a modicum of intelligence and is not OD´ed on Kool Aide knows that Rice wasv told to lie by Mr.0blamer.
The whole story was dreamed up by his handlers Mr Axelrod and Ms Jarret.
Nothing more than a politically motivated coverup of the lie that was stated by Joe Plugs. "Binladen Dead, GM alive". While both are true neither prove much of anything.

FTA: The lack of clarity from the White House on Benghazi is proving a disaster for the Obama administration, giving every impression that it is lacking in transparency, competence and accountability.

The only salvation for America is Almighty God. Nothing changed! We have forsaken Him and allowed Obama to take over.

It is only in God´s Son, Jesus, that man is saved! It is so simple. When, we, as a country,repent, get down on our knees, declare Jesus is Lord and His Word is true, then and only then will we be set free.

God is able to deliver US from all evil - here and abroad!

Open your dusty Bible, read it with a desire to be set free! The Old Testament provides US with the ways/means of salvation, being saved physically as well as spiritually!

God loves His creation and ever responds to the call/prayer of those who sincerely come, willing to follow His plan, able to stand firm in the Truth that US free!

Our founding fathers provided US with the determination to stand up for righteousness.

Where are our leaders today?

Have entitlements caused the havoc we experience today?

What is "most" important for US to survive/thrive?

The answer to all these questions is found in God´s Word.

Stand up for Righteousness!

God´s way is always the best way and it leads us all to the eternal Kingdom prepared for those who love Jesus, King of "all" kings/Lord of "all" lords!

Again, pray for America!

May we shine bright again, for the whole world to see, also to know Who set US free - Jesus Christ, God´s only-begotten Son!

whining to God concerning our lack of courage to make the spoilers back down doesn´t meet the test.

Benghazi: Behind the scenes (Part II)


- Doug Hagmann Thursday, November 29, 2012

Author’s note: This is part two of a multi-part interview with a government insider intimately familiar with the events that took place in Benghazi. It is important to note that the information contained in this series was developed from interviews that spanned over 100 hours. In this part, the insider provides information about the events of the attack and the continuation of the cover-up at the highest levels of our government. (For Part I, please click here).



We’ve heard different accounts and different timelines concerning the attack at Benghazi. What exactly happened?

First, people must understand that the compound that was attacked was situated in a somewhat rural area and was not a consulate, but a rented villa, or a residential structure. The residence was the primary building, and what has been referred to as the annex was located about 1800 feet away as the crow flies, but just over a mile to travel by road. And again, visible security was not present as the compound was the headquarters for a covert operation. No one wanted to draw attention to what was taking place at this location.

The first indications of problems there began at least twelve-(12) hours before the first shot was even fired. One of the men at the compound observed a policeman or Libyan security officer taking photographs outside of t

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Thousands die of thirst

At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship.

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.

Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

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

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss
