On Friday, Sean Hannity brought Pat Smith, mother of the late Sean Smith, on his radio program. The 34-year-old information management officer was one of four Americans murdered in the Benghazi embassy attack on September 11, 2012. In the chilling interview, a distraught Ms. Smith, in tears, pleaded for answers and spoke of the efforts to silence her. Ms. Smith first relayed how her son, prior to the attack, requested additional security in advance and warned the State Department: He did tell them, ahead of time, he typed it into his little typewriter over there,

Hillary, Panetta and Obama are soulless frauds. Mrs Smith raised an American officer who was set up to die by their incompetence-or was it more sinister? They are all unfit to command. Hilary should be hounded at every speech by the Ghosts of Benghazi. Why did not one Republican ask her where she was during the entire seven hour ordeal? Why did they not ask her why she allowed them to be be killed when State had foreknowledge and the money was there to add additional security? How could our government have a ceremony for Mr. Smith and NOT pay for his mother to attend? Good for Sean Hannity for ensuring she gets there and giving her a forum to speak.
Worse yet, the Hildebeast pulled out that reserve military unit that Stevens demanded should stay in Benghazi to protect them and shipped them to a Caribbean Island for a school athletic event. Imagine that. A school athletic event was more important than protecting those U.S. citizens in Benghazi.
Hillary should have been fired on the spot..Obama should have been questioned about why he felt like he could go to a fundraiser in CA while our Ambassador was being murdered. Our news media can no longer be called news..They don´t cover serious news which might put Obama in a bad light. They covered a video taken of Romney at a private fundraiser by a bartender longer and harder than they covered Benghazi. Heads should roll!
Benghazi should be hanging around Zero and Hillary´s necks like a Flavor Flav clock necklace. But, who is there to hold them accountable?? The media did all they could to completely ignore this disgrace. And it will continue to assure Hillary becomes president in 2016, for sure.
I´m surprised someone hasn´t mentioned it yet - Can you imagine the unbridled outrage of the media in this country if something like this happened under the Bush administration? It would be relentless 24X7 coverage! Methinks the Obamboozler has finally acquired defacto dictator status!
I wish the rest of the families would speak out. They need to band together and make it their life´s goal to find out exactly what happened to their loved ones. Think back to the Bush administration when Cindy Sheehan dogged Bush and the media covered it every night on the news. If there is one thing that has done unmeasurable harm to this Republic it is the media. They would have taken down a Republican president in a heartbeat. Goebbels´ Ministry of Propaganda can´t hold a candle to the main stream media in this country. A revolt against these vile organizations would be an excellent start to dismantling the hold the progressives have on this country.
We can´t let Benghazi be swept under the rug. It will have to come from the people because the Republicans don´t have the courage or will to press this issue. These men and their families deserve more than the self-serving circus we witnessed in those hearings. Our government sat on their hands when Americans were begging for help before the attack. That they did nothing when it was going on, is unconscionable. At the time of the attack, their total focus was the impact this attack would have on Obama´s re-election. Obama´s administration sacrificed these Americans for political gain.( I apologize for the lengthy post.)
What really kills me are the number of Democrats I personally know who are not remotely interested. Obama is THEIR guy and they don´t care if he is killing innocents collaterally from drones (so he doesn´t have to interrogate anyone at Guantanamo) or covering up gun running or not protecting our staff in Benghazi (and going to bed early so Obama would be fresh for his next campaign flight---and where WAS Hillary Clinton throughout this?) but were it George Bush or a Republican they would be looking for impeachment for any of these situations, storming the barricades like the villagers coming for Dr. Frankenstein. What bloody hypocrites, and in this I include prominently the Brian Williams´ of this world! They are sitting by while our country becomes a government dominated state and say nothing---because these are THEIR people and they, somehow, think THEY would be hit themselves down the line. FOOLS! And they will push for the lovely Hillary next presidential round, ignoring her LONG file of dishonesties.
And yes, where the Hell are the Republicans, with the exception of people like Ted Cruz or Daryl Issa.......they TALK a good game to Fox and then shut their mouths. No wonder the Party is losing members.
Mrs. Smith would have received her answers from a President Romney by now. I know she was shocked and grieving but had she pressed for answers and contacted politicians and talk radio people sooner, the msm would not have been able to hide the facts before the election, and Obama would have been forced to explain. Why didn´t she contact Romney? He could have made this an issue in a debate? The American People deserve answers which so far have not been forthcoming from Obama and Hillary and Panetta.
Interesting that in the article, Smith said efforts to silence her are coming from something/someone outside of the gummint. Could this be some trolls from the msm acting as Obie´s/Piaps, and Panetta´ messenger? What a bunch of gutless/heartless souls.
This lady did speak out earlier but now with nothing being done, she is compelled to speak out again. This entire debacle should have been completely known and prosecuted by now. But no, Hill, Barry, Panetta and zvrennan just covered their collective butts. "Wha difference does it make now!?!?"
Martin Niemoller´s famous quotation fits so well with this event, although some of his "victims" are no long sympathetic characters. First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-- Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me--and there was no one left to speak for me.
The silent Republicans need to remember this quote. Instead of trying to "work" with Obama, they should use the last four years of his term to hold his feet to the fire and to expose him for the dictator he claims not to be. - Just my opinion.
#14 “..I´m surprised that one out of the thirty rescued wouldn´t talk- at least for money, if nothing else. Of what are they afraid? What were they promised?…”
Might be they were visited by a couple of suits in dark glasses who arrived in a black government sedan with antennas on the roof who explained how income tax returns can be red-flagged for yearly audits and how names can ‘accidently’ be placed on No-Fly lists and Security lists that preclude gun ownership. Little stuff like that. Maybe include the whole extended family!
“You understand, Mr. XXXX, nothing personal. It’s in the interest of ‘National Security.’ We will count on your co-operation in this matter."
The reason -- bubbette clinton wasn´t asked WHERE she was during the murdering of our Americans -- IS -- because THEY already knew...
She was in Latin America at a party for women talking about the dangerous "woman´s issues" facing South America.....
She´s a political hack!!!! She rode her husband´s coat/tail into office and then was offered the Secretary of State job to shut her up and to pay off her campaign debt....
It´s all sleazzzzzzzzy politics. AND -- Mrs. Smith might want to watch her back. Soon she´ll get a visit from bubbette clinton´s cronies about her pets -- like Kathleen Wiley did -- when she testified against bubba clinton. Her cat now sleeps with the fishes....
I think this entire issue will prevent Hillary from reaching her dream of being POTUS.
She shouted "what difference does it make", and her inability to SEE "what difference is does make" proves that she is not fit for office.
I only wish that ALL of the parents, family, friends of those murdered in Benghazi would step forward, together. NOW. I´m certain that they are worried about the repercussions from the Gov´t. But if they are front, center and in the news and they tell people what backlash they are receiving, it puts the pressure on Gov´t NOT them.
My "newspaper" had a very glowing article about Hilary - it´s starting already. It´s up to all of us to go to her rallies and ask her very politely about Benghazi. Times have changed and changed quickly. When Kennedy failed to report the accident that caused the death of the young woman, he knew his dream of becoming President was over. Now someone like Hilary can actually think about running and winning - where is this country´s conscience and morals. She is partially responsible for Benghazi and her boss is responsible for the the other part.
No 1: Stop bit##ing about how if this had happened during a Repub. administration we would have non-stop hearings. The media doesn´t give a crap about your views. Stop reading. Stop watching. Stop feeding the hogs.
No 2: You didn´t vote for Romney, right? Because he just didn´t seem to be conservative enough. Or couldn´t rap with Jay-Z. Or something. Shut up and live with the results until the next shot in 2016. And then think about how well things have worked out under Socialism. If you are still allowed to think.
@#4: Firing Hillary would have been an admission someone did something wrong. Obama never apologizes for anything. When you admit you made a mistake you have have to answer questions an Obama does not answer questions.
Skinny punks, Marxists, Alinsky-bred and taught zombies, Communists, Muslim Brotherhood thugs,Mao-lovers, Demented idiots, and bald-faced LIARS......
Can you BELIEVE these are the scum that run our country now? I can´t...What dowe do about it? They control the message, and the LoMoFo morons on facebook, twitter, yahoo, and google follow their lead like sheeple! I´m praying to GOD today, Sunday, right now, that these 4 souls get justice and we get redemption...and these rats in our government get what´s coming to them, Hussein-Obama, Biden, Clinton, Kerry, Carney, Jarrett, each and every jerk involved in this massive cover-up that is bigger than Watergate, bigger than the BJ in the White House, the biggest government scandal in our lifetime!
"Please GOD, save my country from these despicable liars"!!!!!!!!
The newspapers in this Country tell the public nothing about the Government nothing on Fast and Furious or Benghazi like it never happened. I only buy the paper on Sunday for the Coupons. The Public at large are really ignorant they could care less. A missile from Korea could fly over and they would think it was a foul Baseball. Obama has this Nation in a big mess and the politicians are Wussies. Hillary is not fit to be President. Wake up America
"They control the message, and the LoMoFo morons on facebook, twitter, yahoo, and google follow their lead like sheeple! This might be the answer: Cut the service on Obama phones to make and receive calls PERIOD with very limited minutes (no rollovers). NO texting capabilities. We ALL have to make sacrifices, right?

God bless Sean Hannity for pursuing the truth with Pat Smith. Has our military/CIA been ordered to "shut up" as well? -- by whom? How does one name or define "too high up?" Hillary? Obama? ValJar? Soros?
One wonders, with the levels of vitriol and more directed towards the Gestapo techniques of those @ 1600 and DHS, whether there might not be comparable 1963 activity in the future from any party that might have means. There is SO much anger out there. We are a country truly divided. And none of the Benghazi families can get answers. Sean paid for one of Tyrone Woods´ sons to go to college in full...
The Texas Republican Party is reopening the filing period for Rep. Steve Stockman´s (R-Texas) congressional district after his last-second decision to run instead against Sen. John Cornyn (R). Stockman filed for Cornyn´s seat rather than reelection just minutes before the state´s legal filing deadline Monday night, giving aspiring politicians in the district no heads up that he was doing so. The party´s move gives candidates an additional week, with the new filing deadline set for next Monday. Texas Republican Party spokesman Spencer Yeldell said the party was reopening the filing because it´s required by Texas´s election code. Stockman is facing a steep uphill
Hill staffers that signed up for ObamaCare through the Washington, D.C., healthcare exchange, called DC Health Link (DCHL), are being told to confirm their enrollments in person, and not to rely on data provided by the website. The Hill obtained an email sent to staffers on Wednesday warning them that “it is essential that you confirm your coverage in DCHL through the Disbursing Office.” “Do not rely on your ‘My Account’ page or other correspondence from DCHL,” the email reads. “Please do not assume you are covered unless you have seen the confirmation letter from the Disbursing Office,” the email continues. Hill workers had
The Obama administration expedited visa applications for about two dozen foreign investors for a Las Vegas casino hotel after pressure from Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his staff, the Washington Times reported Tuesday. The Times, citing internal government documents, said the decision to overturn a prior, normally non-appealable visa decision ultimately benefited several companies whose executives have been heavy Democratic donors. The paper said it also came despite concerns about “suspicious financial activity” involving some Asian applicants. Reid, who represents Nevada, personally reached out to the top official at U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Alejandro Mayorkas, setting in motion a process that
California’s budding doctor rebellion against Obamacare appears to be genuinely spontaneous, lacking leadership from a single individual or organization. As the Washington Examiner has reported in recent days, an estimated 70 percent of California´s physicians -- ranging from general practitioners to specialists -- are "just saying no" to Obamacare´s Covered California health insurance exchange. Although it appears leaderless, some observers believe that very spontaneity may make the doctor rebellion a formidable force in California’s health-care future. “Doctors are realizing what is happening and spontaneously they are acting like this. There’s a movement growing,” said Sally Pipes, president of the San Francisco-based
Democrats make a lot of silly statements. The trick isn’t finding a pronouncement by a liberal politician which — in a way nearly unique to politics — simultaneously brings a grimace, a giggle, and a groan, but figuring out whether the speaker is an outright liar or just living in a liberal echo chamber reminiscent of Pauline Kael (or at least the political mythology surrounding her). Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), chair of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, is a reliable representative of the outright liar camp: No echo is loud enough to make her actually believe that Democratic candidates will
It’s long been said that Democrats and their supporters who cry “racism!” at everything that smells like opposition to their left-wing agenda are misguided, or in some cases, smear merchants who lack all credibility whatsoever (looking at you, MSNBC). Well, get a load of the T-shirt that this recently departed national figure – whose impeccable left-wing bonafides should never be doubted – has on:(Snip for photo)That’s anti-apartheid leader Nelson Mandela wearing a T-shirt that endorses getting an ID and voting in 1998. We’ll anxiously be waiting your apology. Oh wait, you won’t apologize, will you?
No, Obamacare isn’t Katrina for Democrats. Katrina was an act of God and/or nature, a phenomenon beyond the control of mere human beings, a catastrophe not of choice, but of nature’s necessity, outside the realm of man’s will. George W. Bush didn’t cause it to happen, nothing he did could have made it not happen, and he surely did not make it worse. The federal response wasn’t inspired, but the reason this mattered was that the mayor of New Orleans and the governor of Louisiana were not only perhaps the two stupidest people ever to hold public office, but the stupidest people
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
