BenghaziGate: Obama Admin
Knew Libyan Terrorists Had
US-Provided Weapons

Breitbart´s Big Peace, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 12/5/2012 10:52:26 PM

In a story that’s been largely buried by the media for years upon years – and was doubly buried in the aftermath of the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11 resulting in the death of four Americans – the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists. Even more importantly, the Obama administration knew about it before, during, and after the Benghazi attacks. The Times reports: No evidence has emerged linking the weapons provided

About time this story began to leak out.
I´m quite sure that most of us reading this thread knew what was said in this article...and much more.

NY Times: ...: the Obama administration clearly was worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan (Islamic) militants, concerns that have not previously been reported....

Obama´s multiple lies over Libya may finally be unraveling. To update his anonymous WH staffer´s quote from 2011: When you lead with your head up your behind, you can´t be honest about it.

Well, let´s just see what happens. I´m not confident anything will come of this no matter what damning information comes out. The Dictator will skate right on through is my pessimistic prediction.

Neither am I #3. The reason Nixon was brought down was because of the never-ending amplification of a fairly minor event by the press. Do you think the press will display the same tenacity regarding Benghazi?

Interesting the NY Slime differentiates between Libyan rebels & terrorists... They´re both from the Muslim Brotherhood.

Seems they are trying to place blame on Qatar... The arms were being recovered by our guys, from Gadfly´s supply & sent to the Mo Bro´s; Why would Qatar send arms to Benghazi? Duh.

we all look forward to the supposed end of the wapo, nyt, boston globe, etc. but what is taking their place? not enough people who aren´t already of the conservative persuasion read this and other "right" sites and those newspapers are still being read by many people and not all dems. benghazi, fast and furious, the supposed financial cliff are all being written about by the left press lens and it´s pretty rosy, at least to me. if obama is out in four years, i´ll eat my hat. we are well on our way to a dictatorship and i´m out of energy and ideas. anyone else have any?

So, Obama knowingly, deliberately armed elements of al-Qaeda and their terrorist offshoots in Libya, resulting in four Americans being MURDERED....

....and there are still no questions about Benghazi from Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer, Scott Pelley, Wolf Blitzer, David Gregory....

It´s a set up, Canada Free Press has a report about the agenda, Behghazi the weapons distribution center for Obama/Cliinton, and Syria the ultimate aim. They want WAR in Syria with Russia and China. A staged chemical attack perpetrated by us, will lead us to boots on the ground and a step closer to war. 100,000 Russian troops already in Syria, NATO is on the way.

I recall Hillary, along with someone else in the administration, telling Congress at the time of our participation (leading from behind, R2P)in the NATO action on the side of the "rebels" in Libya that some of the "rebels" may be al qaeda, but she couldn´t be certain. She knew darn well, but she threw that out there just in case. No one rose out their chair and demanded to know why we would be supporting al qaeda, but then again McCain, Rubio and Graham were all for leading from behind over there.

The "Fog of Obama" continues to enshroud most all of this regimes activities.

We may have a "Perfect Storm" of dictatorial excess, institutional complicity, media cheer leading and public apathy here.

We will not, however, be the first country to surrender our future to the cannibalistic predations of a parasitic and malevolent government.

This is a well worn path.

AND now WE know "why" the MSM has been reporting on the fiscal cliff. To keep the news away from the Middle Eastern Fast and Furious...

Note: When obama moves his right hand -- watch out for the "left" hand....

When obama opens his mouth to speak -- assume it´s a lie.. It always turns out to be.

the liar/in/chief is incompetent as a president -- but he´s a d@mn good liar...

#7, my suggestion - not that it´s particularly practical -- is for rich Republicans e.g Koch bros, Sheldon Adelson, Steve Wynn, hedge fund guys -- to buy Comcast. That provides control of NBC, MSNBC, CNBC and Meet the Press. That would be an MSM outlet to join Fox and counter ABC & CBS. That´s my solution.

"the New York Times is now reporting that US-approved arms that were supposed to go to Libya rebels went to Islamist terrorists." First of all, Libya rebels ARE Islamist terrorists a/k/a al Qaeda. Second of all, the NY Times knew this BEFORE the election because everyone who was paying attention knew it. But they let Obama win anyway. The Times is beneath contempt.

Anyone waiting for the tank media to connect Obama´s dots to yet another debacle ,
is in for a loooong wait.
Just the other day , Dana Milbank penned a column where he expressed red hot outrage that Romney was
going about his private life instead of stepping up and helping Obama with the fiscal cliff.
I´m not making this up.
They will never deviate from their mantra that Obama is as pure as the white cocaine he used to snort and smoke.
And Republicans are evil monsters .
Before this is over , George Bush and Dick Cheney will be the fall guys.

I agree with #22. All the chatter on the election postmortem is so much smoke and noise. NOTHING will change until the main stream broadcast media is neutralized! They have spent the last 40 years propagandizing and dumbing down the public by treating them like mushrooms (keeping them in the dark and covering them with manure) to the point that they only believe the democrat/labor/socialist line of reasoning anymore. I´m not convinced there isn´t a couple of conservatives rich enough buy out two out of three of CBSNBCABC and make honest news organizations out of them. The should be JOB ONE on the conservative agenda before any other future plans are made. Until the people are told the truth in America, things will not turn around.

Sen. Mark Begich has said repeatedly that he thinks President Obama is wrong about a host of policies, whether on oil drilling, the military or the environment. Begich also has made it perfectly clear that he has no interest in having his fellow Democrat out to his home state of Alaska, saying earlier this year that he doesn’t “care to have him campaign for me.” But that doesn’t mean he’s not looking for the president’s help. Begich has in fact submitted a long wish list to the Obama administration for agency decisions that he thinks would boost his reelection chances.

Bush’s plans for his last two years in office, scandal reared its hideous head. Again and again. And just for the Republicans. First, House Majority Leader Tom DeLay resigned in disgrace after he was charged with violating campaign finance laws and money laundering. Then, Rep.

The resignation of a Silicon Valley executive who opposed gay marriage and refused to recant has sparked an online fight among gays about whether proponents of same-sex marriage are now going too far in trying to marginalize their opponents socially and economically. The announcement by popular Web browser Mozilla Firefox that co-founder and CEO Brendan Eich was stepping down after two weeks on the job for a 2008 contribution has sparked furious debate over civil rights, privacy and corporate responsibility. A leading gay blogger has accused the movement of displaying the same intolerance activists accuse their opponents of practicing, while

On its present course, the Supreme Court will ultimately overrule its 1976 decision in Buckley v. Valeo, the landmark case upholding campaign finance “reform” legislation. It can’t come too soon, because Buckley expressly ignored the First Amendment’s injunction that “Congress shall make no law .?.?. abridging the freedom of speech.” Instead of free speech, we now have regulated speech that has ensnarled elections in a web of bizarre and opaque rules. Last week, in McCutcheon et al. v. Federal Election Commission, the court began edging away from Buckley by striking down one of its limits on free speech. The details

Throngs of former administration officials, members of Congress and others descended Friday on College Station, Tex., to fete former president George H.W.

That´s no triumph, it´s a manipulation. And how many of the 7.1 million have paid?" "We can´t say, but 7.1 million is a big number and redeems the program." "Is it a real number?"

In 2008, Barack Obama and Brendan Eich both were against gay marriage. Senator Obama averred his support for the one-man/one-woman view of marriage, while Mr. Eich, a cofounder of the Mozilla web-browser company, donated $1,000 to support Proposition 8 — a California ballot initiative that had the effect of making Senator Obama’s avowed marriage policy the law in California, at least until a federal court overturned it on the theory that California’s constitution is unconstitutional. Barack Obama inexplicably remains, as of this writing, president of the United States of America, but Mr. Eich has just been forced out as CEO

Oregon State University, disdaining responsibility for trashing distribution boxes that were intended for a politically conservative student newspaper, has still paid $1,000 plus $100,000 in legal fees after a former student, William Rogers, filed suit against them. The lawsuit, filed in 2009 by supporters of the newspaper The Liberty, contended that the university president and other school officials permitted the official campus newspaper access to distribution bins, but school officials removed the bins for The Liberty. The suit alleged that school officials confiscated distribution bins for The Liberty and tossed them onto a trash heap. The bins, which contained copies

House Republicans have scheduled a vote next week to hold Lois G.

Rep. Darrell E.

Kerry’s folly, Chapter 3

When has a secretary of state been involved in so many disastrous, self-initiated negotiations? First, John Kerry convenes — against all advice and holding no cards — Geneva negotiations to resolve the Syria conflict and supposedly remove Bashar al-Assad from power. The talks collapse in acrimony and confusion. Kerry’s response? A second Geneva conference that — surprise! — breaks up in acrimony and confusion. Then, even as Russian special forces are taking over Crimea, Kerry goes chasing after Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov — first to Paris, then Rome, then London — offering a diplomatic “offramp.” Lavrov shrugs him off.

When his aides get discouraged about the prospects for Middle East peace, Secretary of State John F. Kerry often bucks them up with a phrase: “Don’t be afraid to be caught trying.” But as his tireless efforts to broker Israeli-Palestinian negotiations hit bottom Thursday, with Israel’s cancellation of prisoner releases that were considered crucial to keeping the talks alive, there are some around Kerry — including on his senior staff and inside the White House — who believe the time is approaching for him to say, “Enough.” Kerry risks being seen as trying too hard at the expense of a

The American left is outraged that the Supreme Court has voted 5 to 4 that limits to the aggregate amount of donations to federal campaigns have been found unconstitutional. Prior to the ruling, there was a 123,200 limit ($48,600 for candidates and $74,600 in contributions to PACs) on the total amount a single donor could contribute in a two year federal campaign cycle. The ruling did not affect the existing $2,600 limit on the maximum donation to any Congressional campaign.

Kathryn Riffenburg decided on a closed casket for her baby´s funeral. She didn´t want her family to see what whooping cough, her son´s first illness, had done to 9-week-old Brady Alcaide. The nearly forgotten disease, which has in recent years afflicted thousands of Americans, left Brady´s tiny body swollen and unrecognizable. So his mother dressed him in a white baptismal suit and hat and tucked him into a tiny white casket. Brady´s burial came just four weeks after his first laugh — inspired by her version of I´m a Little Teapot — and two weeks after his family learned that he had

Rev. Al Shaprton, the controversial civil rights leader-turned-broadcaster, was a confidential FBi informant for years and helped the feds put members of the Genovese and Gambino organized crime families behind bars, it was revealed Monday in a sensational exposé. President Barack Obama will speak this week for the second time at the annual meeting of Sharpton´s National Action Network, raising questions about the group´s special treatment. Sharpton´s special relationship with the Justice Department may also explain why his NAN has been allowed to skirt responsibility for $1.9 million in back taxes and penalties it has owed the IRS since 2006

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

When friends and family members gathered recently at the White House for a private celebration of Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday, one of the invited partygoers was a former paid FBI Mafia informant. That same man attended February’s state dinner in honor of French President Francois Hollande. He was seated with his girlfriend at a table adjacent to President Barack Obama, who is likely unaware that, according to federal agents, his guest once interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families. He even secretly taped some of those wiseguys using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted

LONDON - Peaches Geldof, the wild-child second daughter of concert organizer Bob Geldof who worked as a model, a television presenter and a fashion writer and filled the pages of British tabloids with her late-night antics, has died at age 25. There was no immediate word on the cause of her death at her home in Wrotham, Kent, southeast England. Her father said in a statement Monday: "Peaches has died. We are beyond pain." "She was the wildest, funniest, cleverest, wittiest and the most bonkers of all of us," he said. "Writing 'was' destroys me afresh. What a beautiful child. How is this possible that we will not see her again? How is that bearable? We loved her and will cherish her forever."

A married freshman Republican congressman who campaigned on his Christian, conservative values apologized Monday after surveillance video surfaced purportedly showing him in a lengthy liplock with a staffer. In the Dec. 23 footage, obtained by a local newspaper, Rep. Vance McAllister, R-La. - who ahead of his election last fall ran multiple campaign ads trumpeting his faith and family - is seen kissing and embracing a woman for about 20 seconds at his Monroe, La., district office. The Ouachita Citizen reports the woman is the congressman´s 33-year-old part-time scheduler, who is also married.

Call it the million-worker mystery. A large chunk of American adults are no longer in the labor force. That has left economists divided over how many of them are voluntarily not working-or even looking for work-because they wanted to retire, go to school or take care of family members, versus how many have been forced out because they couldn´t find a job. (snip) Shierholz estimates that there are currently more than 5 million missing workers who are not included in the unemployment rate because they are neither working nor looking for work, but who might be if the job market

The Democratic National Committee is furious by a conservative website’s ad campaign that depicts Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi clad in a bikini in a provocative pose with her tongue sticking out. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, called on Republicans to press Breitbart News to remove the artwork — one of several suggestive images on the website promoting the new California site. The image of Pelosi, beneath one of California Gov. Jerry Brown’s face photo-shopped onto a flexing body builder, includes the sub-head: “Because you can’t make this s— up.” “To say the least,

Wellington -He may be only eight months old. But Prince George made an assured appearance on his debut royal tour this morning. Arriving in New Zealand on the first day of a three-week trip Down Under, the third in line to the throne took the windswept welcome in his stride, although he looked a little chilly in a cream jumper and shorts. Scroll down for video -With a lifetime of royal engagements ahead of him, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are understandably protective of their young son. Indeed, his appearance today was only the second time he has been

Add Bryan Cranston, the star of TV´s recent hit "Breaking Bad" and a new Broadway play about former President Lyndon B. Johnson, to Team Obamacare. In an interview with Yahoo News “global anchor” Katie Couric, the actor called Obamacare the highlight of President Obama´s legacy. “Now’s the time to stake a claim to leave your legacy,” he encouraged Obama. “I personally believe that his health care program is fantastic. Yes, there are problems. Anything worth while is going to go through a growing pains period. But this is his legacy and I think it’s a great one because I don’t
