What Happened In Benghazi
Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/13/2012 6:43:35 PM

The State Department has released a transcript of a briefing that two high-ranking department officials gave to a number of reporters via conference call on October 9 (Tuesday). I am not certain about this, but I believe the transcript was only made public today. You should read it in its entirety; it is the most detailed description I have seen of the events in Benghazi on September 11. While this is by no means clear, it appears that the State Department may have released the transcript as part of the escalating

This would finish a Republican president. The press would be hounding him day and night and the story would be repeated 24/7.

Many of the details here were being reported by numerous sources on 9/13. This stinks.

Classic questions from the WaPo and AP "reporters", hoping against hope to have some shred of a story about a protest leading to the violence, anything to provide cover for their Dear Leader.

I wonder if the reason Obozo was skipping the daily briefings was deniability. Unfortunately for him, that is part of his job!

If Biden was truly that incensed about not knowing that there was a request for more security - he should've made it known before the debates.

If he's saying the truth, then he saved the info for political purposes.

Which diminishes him.

Originally it was repoted that Obama went to bed before the assault on the Embassy was ended.

After all, Las Vegas was calling.

As for her heinous, she spent the following night partying with the Libyan ambassador to celebrate the end of Ramadan.

Finally, someone asks the BIG question. WHAT INTELLEGENCE "community" were Hillary and brack listening to??? Not a soul, in real time intellegence, is on record yapping about a video protest. Hillary started that fiction.

I know I am always urging you to "read this!" but this one is really, really a Must Read.

You will be horrified, but if they could be there enduring that, we can darned well read about it and get very, very angry at those fools who are now telling lies and playing politics over these four American men's bodies.

So "read it"....you owe it to them.

Want to be terrified and share the final moments of our dead American brethren? Read the entire State Department briefing.

And some jerky broad in D.C. decides that they had no need for additional security forces! Boy, does that frost me.

It is common knowledge that the American hard left is working with the jihadists. This sounds like the Obama crew knew there were going to be 9/11 demonstrations supposedly over the video, and they just assumed the Benghazi attack was a part of it. The Stevens murder freaked them because no one was supposed to get hurt, but having already rolled out the preplanned narrative, they just folded Benghazi into the trumped up story. The Chairman of the Joint Chiefs made his planned phone call to the crackpot pastor and issued his press release linking the demonstrations to American Christians, Obama apologizes to everyone, and goes ahead with his preplanned UN speech declaring that the future does not belong to Christians or Jews.

If the US intelligence community could not almost immediately figure out that what happened, on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, at the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya was not another terrorist attack, the USA has been wasting a lot of money in beefing up it's intelligence assets in the Middle East by ending up with is surely an incompetent intelligence operation there.

If the US intelligence community is that incompetent, how are they ever going to figure out when Iran has harvested enough "fissionable" material to power a nuclear bomb? If they can't be relied upon to do that, how are they ever going to determine if Iran has not simultaneously built the bomb casing and trigger devises that Biden mumbled on about during the VP debate?

I read most of this last night and was sickened. I also watched nearly the entire hearing last week with that idiot Lamb woman and Amb. Kennedy, and their testimony is now rendered not only foolish but inconceivably deceptive. They need to be brought back before Issa's committee and explain this. And those moronic Dems who wanted to make the hearings all about a partisan trip to Libya and they were left behind, boo-hoo, well they too deserve a public flogging.

This transcript shows the complete, treasonous incompetence of Zippy's regime and the clown himself. Anyone who can read this and not get angry is simply not human.

It's all about National Priorities. Those Republicans are pumping this story to detract from the real issues America faces. Like Romney trying to kill Big Bird. Those guys would stop at nothing to make The Finest President in History look bad. It's all about dirty politics, something we've come to expect from those slimy Republicans.

At least that's what I read in the Washington Post. It must be true.

I cannot express in words how sick it makes me, that the American people elected such an incompetent, immoral group of lying professional politicians and that they are ready to give them a second term. Is it any wonder America is going belly up?

Barack, Joe, Hillary, Eric and a few others should be incarcerated for treason. And if our founders were still alive, would have hung them by now.

NOT a "game changer." A game-changer would be when an erstwhile high-profile, influential Obama supporter has finally had enough. For instance, if Bill "Dick" Clinton finally said what he really thinks about Obama...now THAT would be a game-changer.

I was listening to an interview with Sean Smith's mother (Sean Smith was the IT expert/information officer who was killed in Benghazi).

His mother said she wasn't permitted to view his body. She said wants to know "everything" that happened, no matter how horrible; and that should be her right.

But her son's body was whisked away (and apparently buried) after arrival here in the US. When she asked for a viewing, she said she was told "it's already on the plane," presumably to a national cemetery?

Can't get away every time. You're just pushing the odds. At some point even Houdini got a surprise punch in the stomach or appendicitis or whatever caused his sudden demise that day in Detroit.

Obama and his crew are trying desperately to run out the clock on this one. It's a race between this tragic fiasco exploding or the calendar page turning to Nov 6. I don't know how the likes of Carney and Rice look themselves in the mirror in the morning. Makes you appreciate the enormous powers of rationalization and denial.

Let us hope so---I particularly would like Romney, also, to ask why, if Intel was so deficient in the BenGazi situation, why is it so accurate (a la Biden) re: Iran going nuclear?
And I STILL want to know WHY the Ambassador was there to begin with....9/11, a particularly poorly defended outpost, a gay, even if really good guy, Ambassador---which is anathema to Muslims, etc.

I have a completely different take on this now. I am no longer interested in the evidence of administration inaction then. That was clear very early. No, what is important now is the continued lack of any concerted action.

Where is the address to the nation about what we will do to respond to the killing of our ambassador and the sacking and burning of our embassy? That was an act of war. Are we going to ignore that? Where is the mobilization of our military to configure and prepare future defenses of similar embassies around world hotspots?

Instead, silence, campaign yadayada, Joker grins , and hip hop parties.

Here's a question for the next debate: Mr. President, I'm not interested in what you knew about Benghazi then, I'm interested in what you're going to do about it now. What ARE you going to do about it and why is it taking you so long to do it?

The jetting off to Vegas by Obama (and Hillary celebrating the end of Ramadan with Libyans? as was reported elsewhere) shows such an immoral, horrendous view of life and defending our consulate---all Obama wanted/wants is to have the political plank of master of foreign affairs on his resume' for the election...he literally has nothing else. The mother of Shawn Smith said she cried on Obama's shoulder, he said "there there" and then looked away---and that's the last she heard from ANYONE re: how her son died. I hope Romney has the guts to bring this all up, and that Candy Crowley does not prove to be as biased and inefficient as the ABCF reporter.

And yet look at all the ballyhoo we had to endure about President Bush waiting 7 minutes before leaving the children when informed of the 9/11 attack!

No one died in Watergate, yet a Las Vegas fund raiser evidently trumps an attack on an American embassy and four lives as well as the justification to lie about from the say guy that said "don't go to Vegas"

How does this administration's admission of "we didn't know..." excuse them from responsibility? Why the heck didn't they know? Where were they when the call came? This shameful incompetence is dereliction of duty. 36 hours after the breaking news of this incident, even I knew most of the truth. How is it possible the administration didn't know the facts. These guys are lying and covering up one of the worst foreign policy disasters in modern history. EVERY American should be outraged! And these criminals should be removed from office!

From 9pm - 4am the assault continued without any external Libyan security rushing to their aid and no screaming armed American forces coming to their aid also.

In what world do our "elected leaders" REALLY live?

Concluding paragraph FTA:
It is hard to imagine what ''intelligence'' reports Obama could have received that blamed the YouTube video. He is lying, evidently.

He didn't 'receive' ANY intel reports.

He wrote his own.

I'll even go so far as to posit that he wrote the SCRIPT of this entire incident. Ambassador Stevens became a ''bump in the road'' to Obama's ultimate goal of worldwide (including U.S.) islamist upheaval. This stupid video excuse was (IS) intended (still) to become the fuse.

Maybe those sacrificed Americans in Benghazi were intentional...., maybe not. Those figures attacking the compound were in total darkness - do we have any real proof they were al-qaeda or Libyans or even Middle Eastern?

I have many more questions than anyone is asking.

So as our diplomats were dying and our sovereign territory was being attacked, our President, viewing the event in real time, completely abdicates his duty as Commander in Chief. That's what this boils down to. Barack 0bama has completely abdicated his responsibilities as the leader of this nation.

If she were the smartest woman in the world, as we have been told by Bill, then could she not have seen the danger of putting out such a false statement about a video and the potential for backfire? She even doubled down on it by sending out an apology to Muslims.
Rice is her competitor, so she happily allowed her face time with the lies in front of the camera.
I would like Obama, Clinton, Biden and Rice to go out with a bang. Throw in Carney with the lot. I've noticed Jarrett has managed to keep out of it.

I read the article and went to the link. This is indeed horrifying to read. But in all the chaos the agents lost the Ambassador. According to the briefing, no one knew what happened to him until someone at the hospital randomly dialed his cell phone numbers and our people picked up the call. How can you lose an Ambassador?
And BTW, no author today could write anything as chilling as this account.
And, Obammy zips out to Vegas. Yuck.

Obama went to Las Vegas and Hillary partied. They had discounted the underwear bomber. They had called the Ft. Hood massacre "workplace violence." Why should this be any different? And unless we raise our voices, it may not be any different.

Perhaps the most chilling part of the account was when those fleeing the compound were traveling in the armoured vehicle and were being guided to 'safety' by a group of men. Fortunately, their instincts told them to steer clear whereupon these 'helpers' began firing on them. Whether it's Benghazi or Afghanistan, our guys can't distinguish friend from foe, yet we are increasingly moving toward joint security efforts. God help those around the world trying to keep us safe under nearly impossible circumstances.

We have to remember that there’s a 6 hour time difference. Libya is 6 hours ahead of us, so when the attacks started around 9:40 pm (Tues. night) Libyan time it’s 3:40 pm (Tues. afternoon) our time. I think this fact makes Obama and his Flying Monkeys look far worse than they already do.

Here's the President's Schedule - September 11, 2012
http://www.whitehouse.gov/schedule/president/2012-09-11
This is the last entry:
50 pm The President and the Vice President meet with Secretary of Defense
Oval Office
Closed Press
Wouldn't it be fun if some enterprising reporter asked Obama/Biden where they was and what the hell they were doing after 5pm while the attacks were still on going?

The consulate should have been secured within 8 hours of the attack and could have been. People need to start asking why it was not.

My conclusion concerning the millions spent on Videos apologizing for a "Video" inciting violence in Cario had to have been done prior to the incident in Benghazi and was used to fuel additional violence across the spectrum. How was it Cario immediately was able to apologize in a short time frame for an "offensive" video and where did they get the idea to use this as the scape goat? Apparently captain zero wanted to diffuse attention only on Benghazi and spread it widely across the areas.

Exactly #53!!!! The remains belong to surviving family members according to marraige, etc. Why can' t the family move the bodies and thereby view the remains?

Let me tell you, if I was told I could not see my son's remains you'd see hell coming for them!

Gramatical correction to post 56 because I can't seem to type:

50 pm The President and the Vice President meet with Secretary of Defense

Wouldn't it be fun if some enterprising reporter asked Obama/Biden where they was and what the hell they were doing after 5pm while the attacks were still on going?

My thought exactly #34. Reported to media on 10/9. They knew this when Biden was spinning his lie at the debate and they let it slide. It is the 14th today and just coming out and only because the conservative media got it. If the media doesn't blow this story soon then it will be completely obvious how hard they are working for the Obama team. Worst thing I have seen coming from an Administration in my long lifetime and the media is helping to cover. UNBELIEVABLE.

I am SO happy to see that this article survived the overnight posting ''fog''.

Originally, we wondered - in this house - why the word of Libyan medical ''authorities'' was taken as the be all and end all. Did no American medical examiner perform an autopsy on these men? The families weren't given the remains to do with as they wanted? Why is Mrs Smith the only family member to speak out? Are the other families being paid off - bribed - threatened - promised???

Either there is something really really big being hidden here or there are really really stupid people in DC making decisions. Perhaps both.

I want Ducky on the job. Now...

This is pure conjecture...

I stated from the beginning that many facts about this smelled of a campaign wag the dog fiasco gone awry. The objective was to change US headlines.

1. Obama was being hammered over "you didn't build that". People were laughing at him over the empty chair.
2. Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood needed to be assured of continued US billions in aid.
3. They visit White House. Aid is approved.
4. Now it is learned that people were paid to demonstrate at US embassy in Egypt.
5. Movie excuse had been cooked up in advance.
6. Egyptian embassy apologizes.
7. Headlines changed.

Simple enough, but one problem. It's my contention that Libya blindsided them. They only counted on Egypt. They were locked into the movie ruse and weren't nimble enough to change course and admit the obvious. End result? Political disaster.

Another chicodon conspiracy theory? Probably, but who knows. Nothing about this story makes sense.

So what is going to happen next? Right before the election look for either a drone, missile, or a special operations raid to happen in Libya, or someplace nearby, for a bunch of people to be killed, and for Barack Obama to hold a special national prime time address to the nation saying that he ordered whatever happens in response to the Benghazi attack.

This timeline does not say when Ambassador Stevens was raped. One must deduce it was after he died of smoke inhalation. Then dragged through the streets of Benghazi.

Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice propagated the video lie. Muslims as enraged movie critics but at least the despicable Christian is now in Federal prison in Los Angeles. The biggest lie was the speech by Obama on September 25 at the UN. Video, video, lie and lie all the time.

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

Distressed homeowners seeking

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

Contempt and the IRS

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.

Darrell Issa of California has just leveled an explosive charge against his Democrat counterpart on the House Oversight and Government Reform committee — to wit, that the gentleman from Maryland colluded with the IRS to harass a conservative organization fighting for honest elections: Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

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. Given that it only takes a Google search to find out everything one would need to know about her, including the controversial aspects of her views, it is disgustingly laughable

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.

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

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. The heavily-armed federal agents, equipped with eight helicopters and backed-up by snipers, surrounded the Bundy ranch after the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) attained a federal court order to confiscate the family´s herd.

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev.

Obama’s appearance represented a presidential seal of approval of Sharpton’s role as a civil rights activist, amid the new revelations about how Sharpton used a wire to record

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. Mr. Camp´s letter takes a step back to remind us why this matters, even as it provides compelling new information that goes to motive and method—and clarifies some of

Solar power has won the global argument. Photovoltaic energy is already so cheap that it competes with oil, diesel and liquefied natural gas in much of Asia without subsidies. 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. Michael Parker and Flora Chang, at Sanford Bernstein, say we entering a new order of "global energy deflation" that must ineluctably erode the viability of oil, gas and the fossil fuel nexus over time.

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Coming clearly through the throbbing of helicopters and the roar of the SUVS of the feds harassing the Cliven Bundy Ranch, patriots there for Bundy should “tell it to the judge”. There is mainstream media-suppressed case history in Nevada the feds are desperately trying to keep under wraps. Chief Judge Robert C.
