Benghazi: Emperor Obama's Waterloo?
American Thinker, by Daren Jonescu

Original Article

Posted By:DW626, 10/18/2012 5:46:49 AM

It is now obvious that the U.S. government's original story about the Benghazi consulate attack, delivered by its two heaviest hitters, the president and secretary of state, was false, and, more importantly, that it was intended to deceive. How can Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton outrun the scandal that now chases them, a scandal that makes Watergate look like cheating at tiddlywinks? As if "Fast and Furious" weren't enough, the administration now gives America "Slow and Spurious."

Comments:
Does this mean that NBC will have to cover it?

"Fairness" does not allow much room for honesty. Advancing the agenda and controlling the narrative are all that matters.

The "Revolution" may be coming but not the one they want.

A great and detailed article on Benghazi and the arrogant lies Obama told.
The 2nd Presidential debate showed how the complicit media actively works to cover up Obama's lies.

The MSM will lie and cover up for Obama. The editorial in our local fish wrapper is a good example. Gives credit to Crowley for keeping Romney under control. Makes snide remarks about Romney and Obama's remarks about the Libya attack. In all it is a puking bit of butt kissing lies.

The realization of those "thinking and reasonable liberals" over the next two
weeks will turn the election into a rout by Mr. Romney. Barack Obama will finally be seen as the fraud that he is....

America has a short attention span. It's better to take your lumps and move on. These idiots kept their story alive only to justify cutting the military and saying all we need is special forces units. Pure craziness.

Just watched Fox & Friends comparison clips of Emperor Zero taking credit for being tough war hero pResident in speeches a week apart where in the early one he mentions al qaida on the run, and the one yesterday he doesn't.

What a fraud. And the people behind him, cheering his every utterance. Every time, I wonder if they actually hear what he's saying.... or, like Pavlov dogs, they respond JUST BECAUSE he's saying - something. Anything. Doesn't matter what.

We conservatives see Romney's faults, and we accept the fact he's not perfect, hoping we can work him to the right a little more after the election (depends on all our congressional races, folks). We always see reality squarely and deal with it as necessary.

These people behind Obama in his speeches - mostly college kids of course - whatever happened to youthful rebellion against authority? He has so convinced them that HE is the counter-authority. Well, he IS one of them, I suppose - perpetually immature, stuck at their age.

Prayer time again.....

Candy Crowley became the topic of discussion from the 2nd Presidential debate for people who watched it. I have never seen my son in law so animated when talking about politics as when he wanted to share his observations about that debate. He is just 30 years old and he was outraged that Crowley had interrupted Mitt Romney's point.
I think this will backfire on the Obama minions, BIG TIME, as Dick Cheney would say.

The old sleight of hand of a magician or master mind-manipulator or natural born pathological liar and you have the man in the White House who wants us not to look in the real direction, The direction of big win by alQaeda both on the ground slaking their blood lust but the propaganda victory as they drive our national narrative with help of the CIC and our corrupt lamestream media-self important narcissists all.

While we are looking the other way and at obama's Libya lie (what is one more klie to him? His media idjits have his back.)al Qaeda is dancing in the streets, around bon fires and abusing the dead bodies of their recent kills--raping, looting and pillaging. ( How do they keep Bill Clinton away?)

Sad fact is that al Qaeda is winning a propaganda war and the obama admin is helping them and the lamesstream media is aiding and abetting. Money to the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood so they can bomb the Nile dams of their neighbors? Sure was good move by the warrior valkyries (We came, we saw, he died Hillary, exulting at her kill as Ghaddafi was being object sodomized for sport by the tribal brutes.)

We do not understand them but their fellows educated in the West or by Old Ned himself DO understand us. They are winning the propaganda war and rioting to win concessions to change the world in other forms of Jihad.

Bottom line, it may be obama's Waterloo but for the wrong reason that it should be. He should be having to face the fact of his failure to protect the American people from propaganda and deceit of a group he nostalgically favors due mixing and melding with the more peaceful Indonesian Muslims of his youth?

So, if Obama is now saying he called it a terrorist attack right away, how much more disgusting is it that he flew to Las Vegas the very next day? Words to describe him fail me.

What I want to know is why, during Tuesday's debate and AFTER Crowley skewered Axelrod on her own CNN program re: use of the word terrorism, Obama said (twice) "LOOK AT THE TRANSCRIPT", which Crowley just happened to have with her.........(.even though she later had to walk BACK the fact that Obama was using the word terror generically at the END of a Rose Garden address ) after which he hopped AF1 to Las Vegas for a fundraiser, something Crowley also neglected to pursue( though THAT was the question)...the damage was done, and apparently Crowley is being celebrated at CNN, another reason NOT to watch that network.

In addition to the military cuts mentioned at #5, the Harriburg Patriot News hid this story deep within, assigning it to a blurb position. The 54-word first paragraph is all one sentence. Awful writing.

'A federal appeals court Tuesday threw out the terrorism conviction of a high-profile former detainee at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, Salim Hamdan, a Yemeni who served as Osama bin Laden's driver and bodyguard and whose case led to a landmark 2006 Supreme Court ruling striking down the Bush administation's first version of military commissions.'
....'The decision delivered a blow to the military commissions system, reducing the chances that many other detainees at Guantanamo will receive trials.'

#14, perfect.
Hasn't the WH now been allegedly given the name of the terrorist who assassinated Stevens? This is a complete wag the dog: Obama comes walking forward in the debate, all offended about politicizing Steven's death and sternly tells the nation how he won't stop until those responsible are found. What amazing timing that just after his speech, the terrorist or useful idiot has been named. I suspect the Seals are already in place for a weekend attack. Perhaps he'll be buried at sea so he won't become a martyr. All of this just in time for the final debate.

The writer does a pretty good job until the end when he fizzles before saying just what is wrong with the Arab Spring and why the president and SoS were trying to protect its image. For that we'll have to go here:

On the strategic level, this administration has been a complete disaster. Obama has moved decisively against allies, failed to complete a Status of Forces Agreement with Iraq (a grave and inexcusable mistake), and joined the naïve rush to endorse the various “Arab Spring” revolts and the resulting Islamist governments. As we pull out of Afghanistan, Obama’s Middle East legacy will be a hostile Egypt, Iran substantially closer to a nuclear bomb, Syria in chaos, Iraq slipping into neutrality (at best), portions of Libya under jihadist control, Afghanistan under renewed Taliban assault, and America as despised as it’s ever been, with the black flag of jihad hoisted over embassy after embassy. Oh, but we’ll have drones orbiting overhead, launching the occasional pinprick strike. Do you feel more secure?

In this smoke and mirrors administration, image is everything even if that image is as bogue and baseless as those styrofoam pillars.

I wish some investigative reporter would backtrack on the "Arab Spring". Was this started by some of Captain Zero's players to get all these countries under the Muslim Brotherhood control?
The guy who won over Christine McDonnell for Senate was in Kenya some years back and was trying to set up an uprising of the youth there until he was chased out of the country. Code Pink (Medea Benjamin) was a supporter along with some others flew in to support the removal of Gadaffi and Murbarak--Andrew Breitbart confronted her on a plane trip from the East to California.

As furious as I am about the Candy Crowley cover for Obama, I wonder if it will help Romney. If America was level headed and clear thinking, maybe. Jimmy Kimmel did a piece the night before the debate and asked people who they thought won and why. The debate hadn't even taken place yet and the people they interviewed claimed to have seen it and what impressed them most about it. I cry for our country when I think about this younger generation who worships the ground this guy walks on because they think every thing is going to be free for them.

The most important aspect of this scandal is not being reported by anyone: The willingness of Obama, Clinton, et al, to trash the first amendment and free speech before the entire world. What precedent has that set? Furthermore, they were more than willing to ruin the life of an American citizen. That's disgusting.

The rhetorical and obvious question that is asked in this article is an easy one to answer. How will this travesty of incompetence, stupidity, and venality (playing politics with peoples lives)avoid being the fabled albatross around obama's neck? Easy! It will be shunted aside by the FDM (Federally Directed Media) thus becoming a non-story. It is happening already and according to the FDM, it pales in importance when compared to KILLING BIG BIRD.

They lie because the truth about aspects of 0bama's MENA policy. Think of a MENA Fast and Furious where instead of weapons going to the Sinaloa cartel, they are going to Al Qaeda.

The question is whether Ambassador Stevens was set up to be killed, was part of a plot to free the blind sheikh or was part of a botched kidnapping plot to make 0bama look good just before the election.

Don't question the lack of truth, the deception, lies and sleight of hand. It's all part of the process and they obviously have enough people snowballed that they think they can steal another election. It's not just Obama, he's a wooden dummy and has many people pulling his strings. The only thing that will bring truth back to the table will be a merciless housecleaning of government or full-scale revolution. Joseph Goebbels proved that these deception tactics work all too well and are very hard to fight through peaceful means because half of the population is delusional and is all too willing to be led to the slaughterhouse on the promise of another free meal. Fair play and appeasement will not save us but the 2nd amendment will.

The Coptic Christian that placed "Innocence of Muslims" in YouTube is still in Federal Prison in Los Angeles. The Pakistani doctor that gave proof of Osama for Obama is in prison too.

Obama apologized six times for the video in front of our enemies at the UN General Assembly on September 24. Monica's Boyfriend's Wife purchased TV commercials of Herself and Obama in Pakistan.

The US Embassy in Cairo apologized for the video before they were attacked on September 11, 2012. The mob was directed by Mohammed al-Zawahiri, the brother of the al-Quaida leader, and they flew the Black Colors of al-Quaidain our embassy.

Having a Muslim-educated president did not help us, did it?

I feel sorry for Seal Team Six and all the other Special Operations personnel who are being set up for a dangerous mission, probably this weekend, just so Øbama can look tough on foreign policy in Monday night's debate. He will send them on this mission regardless of the intelligence evaluation of the situation. He claims that our poor Libyan intelligence was responsible for the surprise attack in the first place and will now launch his "Wag the Dog" campaign video based upon the intelligence from the same groups.

Open hiring practices: that's what America needs, as well as this painfully awaited election. We need to know the hiring practices of all the unionized networks and newspapers. Showing big taxing government favoritism, regardless of whether or not they are already Communists, is the way any applicant qualifies. What are the tests they give to get into the world of Josef Geobbels? Hiring practices disclosure is a next big step in our New Media world of cleaning Old Media house, and eliminating criminal broadcasters, those who approve of anything socialist. So called "news people" stay in office forever, as long as they tow the Communist Party Line, or it's easily disguisable equivalent, like the soft Party Line, the way Marxist teachers throughout America disable thinking, otherwise healthy kids. Remember, for all time, one of the last new projects from Andrew Breitbart before his sudden, mysterious death, was his declaration that he was beginning a BREITBART EDUCATION.COM inviting children and parents to submit secret classroom videos showing teachers all across America as they indoctrinate the kids with "cultural Marxism". This is part of the do or die housecleaning needed to remove
60 plus years of communist marxist damage.

Here's what Romney should do in the next debate.

"Now, I want to make sure I understand what you were telling me last week in the second debate. You said that you knew this was a terrorist attack on the day AFTER the killings took place. Correct?"

O - "Uhhhh... ahh.... yes, but first let me..."

Romney "Well. I hope you can understand my confusion here, because all I heard for the next two weeks was that these attacks were the result of a spontaneous mob action that was precipitated by anger to a YouTube video. Susan Rice said it. Your Press Secretary said it. Hillary Clinton said it. The State Department ran ads on Pakistani TV that alluded to it. And, Mr. President, you said it on two talk shows as well as on the floor of the United Nations where your address mentioned the video now fewer than 6 times. What I want to know is this. How could you let the charade continue for two WEEKS after you claimed to have KNOWN this was a clear terrorist attack?"

This will bury Obama.

The Poverty Hoax

A major concern of progressives is their supposed interest in the fate of the poor. They purport to be the champions of the poor. But the truth is that they need the poor more than the poor need them, in a symbiotic relationship. As much as 75% of the money allocated to the poor is consumed by the vast bureaucracies that administer this aid. These agencies are actually job programs for college graduates who would often find it difficult to find employment in the private sector. The late William Raspberry wrote a column dealing with Gina, a 14 year old

The clumsiness and incoherence, if not madness, of this administration’s foreign policies are creating havoc around the world. No one wrapped up the story of the chaos better than Sultan Knish did this week: When Bush left office at the end of his second term, the region was mostly stable aside from Iran’s nuclear program. By the time Obama had finished his first term, it was in a state of endless war. [snip] Bush had sought to stabilize the Middle East by removing Saddam. Obama instead destabilized it by trying to remove every government that was in any way friendly to the

Early on in the Genesis chapter of the Bible much is made of Adam giving names to all living creatures. Like everything about the Bible, the meaning of this event is subject to many interpretations, the most often given is that it signals man’s dominion over the other creatures of the earth. I don’t dispute that reading, but to me, the naming description signifies that there can be no real communication among people unless the names we use mean the same thing to all of us. A spade certainly is a garden implement, but if you are in the gardening

The “I’m shocked, shocked” line from Casablanca is too much a cliché to carry any -- umm -- shock value, but surely it fits Putin’s actions against Ukraine. But the civilized world, mainly the Anglosphere, has long shown its utter indifference to human life by ignoring mass killings on a scale surpassed only by the Nazis and the Communists in the last century. More than a hundred thousand in Syria and still going on; perhaps a million or more in North Korea; millions in Africa, uncounted tens of thousands or more in Iran.

This week President Obama, following a long string of bloopers that the media underplays or ignores, spelled respect "R-S-P-E-C-T´". It was a fitting blunder in a week in which he and America´s left wing took a series of pratfalls.To start off, Medea Benjamin, master media manipulator and water carrier for countless leftist tyrants, winged into Cairo apparently to lend her inestimable support to the Moslem Brotherhood. The Egyptian government treated her less courteously than did the Democrat legislators who regularly let her and her pinko buddies disrupt Congressional hearings.

When Paul Audley took the job as president of FilmL.A. in late 2008, he was astounded to discover that physical production on the $70 million pic “Battle: Los Angeles” wasn’t being done in Los Angeles.“It stunned me that the movie was shooting in Louisiana, and that the state of California was letting this happen,” he recalls. In the subsequent five years, the situation has only worsened, despite the film production incentive program California enacted in 2009, which provides for $100 million a year in tax credits for what’s usually 20% of production costs. That’s significantly smaller than programs offered by other

Kudos to Don Lemon, the CNN journalist, for admitting what conservatives have maintained ever since Barack Obama became president with unquestioning media support and suppression of any conservatism as racist: (This is the totality of the text, video is enclosed.)

Nothing better depicted Obama´s illegal tampering with the clear words of ObamaCare -- his announcement this week that he was delaying the employer mandate for medium-sized companies -- than Michael Ramirez´ brilliant cartoon showing the law as a blank page in which Obama had continually changed its words and meaning. Along similar lines, Charles Krauthammer observes: But generally speaking you get past the next election by changing your policies, by announcing new initiatives, but not by wantonly changing the law lawlessly. This is stuff you do in a banana republic. It´s as if the law is simply a blackboard on which Obama

In the business world, a diligent board of directors would have long ago fired CEO Obama. Sometimes it takes only a year of less than expected earnings to result in the termination of a corporate CEO. A couple of underperforming years and a few reasons more, and a CEO would have his bags packed and stowed underneath his buck-stopping desk. A long list of problems -- especially one suggesting even a hint of fraud -- that fails to generate a satisfactory board response would stir shareholders and lenders to demand the resignation of not only the CEO and other key employees,

This week the big story was the tag end of the old JournoList gang trying to spin gold out of the dross of the Congressional Budget Report. The CBO report projected that by 2021 under ObamaCare more than 2 million full-time workers will find it financially advisable to quit work entirely or switch to part-time jobs in order to get more subsidies for healthcare insurance. To most of us who studied real economics or just paid attention to human nature, subsidizing indolence means you´ll get more of it. But to the airheads on the left and their JournoList spinmasters -- the

This week to an ever-diminishing audience President Obama outlined a pedestrian plan for the remainder of this year, amidst the usual hornswoggle of invited guests in the gallery and dubious daytime TV style anecdotal stories of their lives. More popular than ever is the wish that we could return to State of the Union messages being delivered on paper to Congress. In the meantime my friend Ignatz, the genius Sultan Knish (Daniel Greenfield) and even Vladimir Putin offered up some sage observations which underscore the rot at the heart of the administration and his party and the likely consequences of their

Apart from me, there is only one other non-Democrat I know of in my immediate D.C. neighborhood. Let´s call him John Doe, because he´s petrified that he´ll be the next target of this extra-constitutional gang from Chicago and wouldn´t want to see his name made public. I hadn´t seen him around for a while, but yesterday afternoon there was a knock on the back door. No one ever uses it so I figured it was the gas meter reader, but no, it was John who scurried in, using the cover of the large fig tree branches out of fear he might

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual
