Officials emailed soon
after Benghazi attack

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor & Shaun Waterman

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 10/24/2012 11:40:02 PM

Congressional Republicans on Wednesday spotlighted a newly revealed email that shows Obama administration officials were told within hours of the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that an al Qaeda-inspired militant group had claimed responsibility for the assault. After the White House and State Department downplayed the significance of the email Wednesday, Republican Sens. John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte sent a letter to President Obama asking why U.S. officials “described the attack for days afterward as a spontaneous response to an anti-Islam

Obama chose to lie.
Obama picked what would help his reelection and lied and squirmed and defended that lie for weeks.

There are only two possible reasons Obama chose to portray a false narrative (lie) to the American people about Benghazi: first, he felt that the truth would harm his reelection as it would be obvious al-Qaeda had not been destroyed, or second, he believes it is important to take every opportunity to make Americans feel badly about our first amendment rights. Which is it? An incurious press is risking our collective future.

Hillary worked on Nixon's impeachment, I'm sure she knows the coverup only makes the transgressions worse. Such hubris, and irony.

“Hosting something on Facebook is not, in and of itself, evidence.” said Hillary Clinton.

Who brought up Facebook except Hillary? Is this how she is going to shuck and jive her way out of this mess?

I cannot believe these people. Accountable for nothing, will lie about anything, no morals, no conscience...

The big difference #3 is that during Watergate and subsequent cover-up, no one died and our national security was never at stake.

The thing I've noticed about Obama's lies is that it makes no difference to him when they are exposed - he just digs in and keeps repeating them. He's still running ads about Bain Capital and tax incentives for moving jobs overseas, $6,000 increase in Medicare premiums, Romney wanting GM to go out of business, Romney getting rich by of shutting down factories.... The same thing happened with the video lie. Once he told it he stuck with it and would be still if it wasn't so blatantly false.

After I read an article, I like to read the comments afterward to get an idea what the people are thinking on any given subject. Most after this article were clear headed thinkers who had assessed the situation in Benghazi and came to the obvious conclusion that the Obama administration lied and continue to try and confuse the American public. However, there are some who by their comments will never place the blame where it belongs no matter what evidence is presented. These are the people who hold their liberal ideaology above love for their country.

Obama is a real and present danger to this country and MUST be defeated on November 6th. When that happens I fear this country is in for some rocky times from his followers. So be it. It is time for these anti-American lemmings to understand the power of the majority. We will not let this great nation fall from within.

DH and I were discussing the fact that if these people had any shame, none of them would show their face in public because they have been caught lying in the worst way. But they dont even bat an eye - just keep on telling those whoppers and daring you to call them on it. Audacious liars.

And Obama is the worst. It seems every word out of his mouth for the last almost 5 years (counting 2008 campaign time) has been a lie. And that goes for his buick-butted wife, too. They wouldn't know truth if it reached out and slapped them.

Something I've not seen mentioned is the next day after the Benghazi murders there was an article which said one of the ones murdered was on a game site and said something to the effect 'I don't know if I/we will make it through the night.' I guess it's not that important, but was just thinking how sad to be in that situation and know what was probably going to be the end result.

Call me paranoid but - Something that is bothering me - even if Romney absolutely blows zippy out of the WH, if zippy isn't arrested and jailed for treason, he will be able to continue his under the radar support for radical Islam to the detriment of this country which has given him everything and which he continues to detest. He MUST be stopped.

I think this was Obama's plan from the beginning, destabilize the Middle East and give as many countries as he could to radical Islam. We got rid of Mubarak and Kadafi, stood back for their ''democratic elections'' which brought in the Muslim Brotherhood.

We've given the Brotherhood in Egypt a billion dollars and have been arming the rebels in Libya, the same group who attacked our compound.

Next term we'd continue to decimate our military, walk out of Iraq and Afghanistan and hand our sovereignty over to the UN. Michelle would start issuing ration books for our food.

Whoever is pulling Obama's strings has been very effective so far in achieving his goals. Throw in Obamacare for good measure. Vote Obama out before it's too late.

The point isn't WHY they lied. The point is that America was attacked (embassies are considered American soil) and four Americans died.

The point is that we were attacked in an act of war and did nothing. It doesn't matter WHY we were attacked or who lied. It does matter that we were attacked and did nothing but watch it happen. This Administration did nothing. Nothing.

It matters that the American "mainstream" media is choosing a Leftist political agenda over the lives of American citizens by refusing to cover this story realistically. This is more than unconscionable. It's sheer evil.

Watergate was a nothing burger and since the hag was so hot to trot Nixon out of office, she must be informed that being sos is not a permanent job and since she screwed up big time, she should resign and maybe serve some time in the pokey. That would be a sight to gladden many people that despise her and her worthless husband. As for the moron in the WH, he should be shipped to a desert island that has no water or food.

Yes, Sean Smith not only wrote that on the gaming site but he also indicated in the days before the attack that there was hinky behavior going on= security not in their positions, nefarious characters taking photos, etc.

Oh and another big reason this was no demonstration- it started after 10pm at night and there had been no protests before. That was why Sean Smith was on the gaming site, it was well past normal work hours.

There is a deeper question that I would like to have an answer for. And that is, given the reliable report(s) that WE(the US) had a drone overhead and that some of our people were watching the entire episode in real time(Lamb), who sent the drone? And why? I don't really think that we have so many drones and the money to fly them any and everywhere just for fun. That drone was there for a reason. Find that reason and the entire episode will unfold about who, what, when, etc. And yet, I don't hear anyone asking that question. Again, WHY DID WE HAVE THAT DROVE OVERHEAD DURING THAT ATTACK?

Finally, it has to be clear to critical citizens, it’s not just one False Narrative. It's the frightening awareness Obama and comrade handlers are spinning TWO FALSE NARRATIVES ! First, the one we know, covering up obvious Benghazi lies, violent deaths, other mass violence that followed immediately because of U.S. doing nothing, Fast and Furious, illicit amnesty to aliens, suing the states, promoting no ID for voting, CommunistKare, on and on indebting us into more trillions. Briefly, THAT'S False Narrative #ONE pushed now in New Media. False Narrative #TWO is the same, Old Media happy go lucky, agitating with jive talking, issue avoiding, permitting soft questions only, not balanced news in front of indoctrinated students and non essential government bureaucrats, visits on the commie View, Daily Show, pal Letterman, all the happy time TV visits, and endless stock footage on FoxNews and all networks that 24/7, show Obama gaily walking from helicopter to White House, smiling and waving to nobody. There you have it: two False Narratives, played to two distinctly DIFFERENT groups of Americans. Kind of like a magic act, “Now You See It, Now You Don’t”, Whichever audience is the sucker, the blind sided fool. His communist agitprop genius has been playing two separate roles to two separate markets, and the only question is, with covered up Benghazi deaths, is it finally catching up with him?

The Obama Administration was extremely negligent for not providing adequate security to Ambassador Stevens and the US Consulate in Benghazi before the 9-11-12 took place.

Now they are trying to sell the nation something akin to what amounts to an "open barn door" situation, where they are pledging to fix that situation by closing the "barn door" after the horse has left the barn, or specifically after the attack in which the ambassador and three other Americans were murdered.

Isn't it interesting that Hillary chose to ignore all those other emails from our people stating that the attack was by terrorists with guns, mortars, and rocket propelled grenades. Instead she addresses only the one email that referenced a twitter posting by people claiming responsible for the attack. This is a devious way of trying to imply that all of the emails were open to question, which is a lie!

Recent developments indicate that the claim of responsibility for the attack on twitter is valid.

It's not affecting the polls. The mainstream propaganda machine is ignoring it. Barack Obama is a sociopath. He lies with ease, gets caught, no problem, just keeps repeating it. The media repeat his lies, endorse them, make excuses. Amazing , Luara Neesom(sp?) says it doesn't matter because Romney didn't call him on it, and it can't be a coverup because it's too incompetent to be a coverup. Obama's media enablers are really outstanding.

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

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.

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.

The petition arrived the day before publication of my column, which consisted of precisely that heresy. The column ran as usual.

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

Demonizing SCOTUS:
The OCare Precedent

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. Be mean to John Roberts and

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. Cliven Bundy and his

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.

Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she´s cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families. Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton´s role in the Benghazi scandal. "She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us. We don´t want her here," said Jan Iverson, a local mother and protestor. (Snip) Clinton´s office says she changed plans because of

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

Barack Obama got quite the handful on Thursday, April 10, but it was all for a good cause! As the President of the United States was boarding Air Force One with his wife Michelle Obama, a gust of wind blew up her skirt. Barack quickly stepped in and grabbed the First Lady´s billowing skirt to help her avoid a wardrobe malfunction and embarrassing Marilyn Monroe moment. Earlier in the week, another famous lady on the global stage suffered a similar snafu, but no one was around to help her -- not even her prince!

Recently elected Democratic Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe is warning that global warming could raise sea levels high enough to flood the Hampton Roads region, home to the world´s largest naval base, without immediate and “smart decisions.” Addressing an environmental summit this week at the Virginia Military Institute in Lexington, Va., McAuliffe embraced climate change, blamed humans for causing it, and said action is needed now to protect Virginia´s coast from rising ocean levels that will result from global warming. “The first big decision of course is to accept that climate change is real,” he told the group. “I happen to believe in

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.

STAMFORD, Conn. — Jeb Bush defended his controversial comments about immigration reform, insisting they were nothing new for him and urging “sensitivity to the immigrant experience.” At a Connecticut Republican party dinner Thursday night, the former Republican governor of Florida did not repeat his remarks from last weekend at his father’s presidential library, when he said that people who come to the United States illegally in search of a better life for their children “broke the law, but it’s not a felony. It’s an act of love.” This time the potential 2016 candidate put it differently. “To be young and

President Obama stood Friday with the Rev. Al Sharpton and accused Republicans of trying to keep millions of Americans from voting, in a fiery speech days after new revelations about Sharpton’s past as an FBI informant. “The right to vote is threatened today in a way that it has not been since the Voting Rights Act became law nearly five decades ago,” Obama told the annual convention of Sharpton’s National Action Network in Manhattan. 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

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

The deportation of foreigners living illegally in the United States is similar to the forced internment of ethnic-Japanese Americans in World War II, according to Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi. “I’ll be very honest with you: Looking at the numbers at some point, in terms of how people are treated and deported and families separated and the rest, this has a scent of Japanese internment,” Pelosi told a Politico reporter. “It’s really a black mark,” said Pelosi. Roughly 110,000 ethnic-Japanese immigrants and their American children were detained during World War II after Japan’s sneak attack on Americans in Pearl Harbor. Pelosi also urged Obama
