Ever since an armed mob torched a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, President Obama has vowed to bring the killers of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans to justice. Yet four months after the assault, U.S. counterterrorism and intelligence officials tell The Daily Beast that the hunt for those responsible remains stymied by poor cooperation by North African governments.On Tuesday, the Tunisian government released Ali Ani al-Harzi,
until the general public sees these questions in the msm, they will not be taken seriously. the republican leadership should be shouting from the rooftops, buying t.v. time and telling the people about this inept, corrupt administration. when these articles appear only in the conservative press, they are not only (usually) not read by anyone other than conservatives, the information is dismissed as conspiratorial, false or worse. here in ma. it is just about a lost cause, but in other states, you can have some influence on your elected republicans to speak out - have press conferences and the republican committee needs to buy time on prime time t.v. to give the other side as often as necessary. enough with the lying back and hoping for the best. it´s not working.
Oh so true, #3. Can you imagine the hay Dems would make from such a horrendous and shameful incident? Dems would have had the two parents who were willing to speak out initially before the committee and the news cameras. They would have played up the ambassador´s orientation as a reason for the neglect of his safety, the extreme bravery of the former SEALS, the prophetic last tweet of the gamer Smith, and the abject lies told by the O gang for weeks afterward to the families, the public, the UN. The stand down order would have become a drumbeat for impeachment. Perhaps someone slips valium or marijuana into the GOP´s food in the Congressional dining rooms, or perhaps there´s blackmail involved.
Isn´t it amazing that our politicians have, on the day it occurred, the solution to the massacre at the school, but can´t do ANYTHING about the bengahzi slaughter? They can´t even testify and report on it how many months after?
No one would have to wonder where the killers are , if Obama had tried to defend Americans under attack. My analogy is to a house set ablaze by an arsonist and then someone ordering the fire department not to respond. There are two areas to be investigated , not just the one the MSM is focusing on . I´m surprised Eli Lake hasn´t been reassigned to Antarctica-he´s bravely gone where the rest of the media refuses to go. You can´t just look for the murderers ( hint, hint..Islamic terrorists ) , the bizarre behavior of Obama on the night of the attack must also be investigated. The White House stated that Obama went to bed knowing that Ambassador Stevens and other white " bumps in the road " , were missing and the consulate under enemy fire. A normal and American Commander in Chief would had stayed up all night monitoring the situation primarily because he feared for the lives of all the 30 plus Americans at the consulate. Obama shows more affection and care for his personalized basketballs and special Nikes than he does for his fellow man. Reggie Love and Kal Penn being the lone exceptions ....
It might get a clear picture of an inept administration! Especially on national security! Naval gazing amateurs that have convened themselves of their superiority! As long as they lead we must lookout for ourselves! That´s one reason we need our guns!
The Benghazi gate Lie, the murders, have all been topped by the painful brutality of the school shooting. It was too convenient not to question its terrifying timing of both events. Reminds of WAG THE DOG, THE MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, TELFONE. Yes that´s a brutal suggestion, but no more brutal than all the killings that are purposely being covered up. For all the amazing things that are happening in the creative free exchange world of today, these are terrible, deathly political deficit driven, greed ridden times
Amb. Stevens knew something Obama doesn´t want told, so O left him and all the others to die. He had no way of knowing the ex-Seals would be able to save 30 of those people when he went to bed. He thinks now if he ignores it, it will go away. I hope Hillary comes clean for a change. She isn´t famous for telling the truth.
I think we need to get rid of the notion that this building was a "consulate". It was a CIA station house under flimsy diplomatic cover complete with its own torture room. "Ambassador" Stevens was a CIA gun-runner funneling Gaddafi´s pilfered arms to Turkey for use by the Rebels in Syria. Those 30 survivore were all CIA agents so don´t expect them to appear in public anytime soon. They don´t want to be identified. The whole thing was an Obama/Hillary-concocted nightmare, run by incompetents. Job #1 for Obama was to lie to the American people about what happened.

Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
