The secret war behind Benghazi
New York Post, by Kyle Smith

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/11/2013 8:28:32 AM

Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the US consulate because of a secret low-level war in which American hit squads took out leaders of al Qaeda militias, which retaliated in Benghazi. There was never a protest at the consulate over the infamous anti-Islamist YouTube video. So says the new 80-page e-book, “Benghazi: The Definitive Report” (William Morrow) by Jack Murphy and Brandon Webb, two military veterans who specialize in reporting about clandestine operations at the website SOFREP.com. Their book, which they say is based on interviews with well-placed security types but contains

Comments:
The allegations contained in this book are shocking. Will they allow Brennen´s nomination to go forward? He´s really a dangerous, deadly man.

Re: "“The nature of these operations remains highly classified. They were never intended to be known to anyone outside a very small circle in the Special Operations community and within Obama’s National Security Council. Ambassador Stevens, the CIA chief of station in Tripoli and then-director of the CIA, Gen. [David] Petraeus, had little if any knowledge about these JSOC missions.”

Appears that Obama has updated Nixon´s "plumbers" with a special assassination team outside of normal military and civilian control as well as congressional & judicial oversight. May explain why none of the 32 Americans who fled Benghazi on 9/11/12 have never been allowed to testify. Nixon´s plumbers led to his impeachment, as did Nixon´s secret bombing of Cambodia.

The number of things this would be dictator could be impeached for is vast, the inaction by the gutless spineless cowards in the House is just mind numbing. The country is in the hand basket headed swiftly for that other place.

Assassination Czar.

The group controlled by Brennan is not military. Not CIA. It is Obama´s own private special operations force run by Brennan, who also runs the drone assassination program. The special ops force and Brennan neither answer to nor brief Congress, CIA, or DOD. They answer only to Obama. Obama´s personal and VERY PRIVATE Republican Guard.

Very interesting. It all fits the pattern of this regime. John Brennan is Deputy National Security Advisor for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism. He was appointed to that post, which does not require Senate confirmation.

Assassination Czar.

Sooooo, we have learned in the last 24 hours that Benghazi was a CIA operation. Chris Stevens seemed to play the role of facilitator. He was only guarded by CIA people. He needed more. The survivors must have been CIA folks. Hillary seemed clueless although the look on her face when those bodies came back was unbelievable. She knew they all were in trouble. She didn´t recover very fast from that. Obama seemed to get his bearings a lot faster because he went into CYA mode faster than anyone.

The whole Arab Spring debacle is mostly facilitate by our CIA and John Brennan. This is a huge foreign relations failure. Rush called it back then. Pray that this blows up in Obama´s face.

"The Joint Special Operations Command, which Brennan controls, is a collection of special forces outside of the regular military command originally formed as a hostage-rescue team. But in the middle of last summer, say Murphy and Webb, troops operating clandestinely under JSOC began infiltrating Libya."

It says, "outside the regular military command." Is that constitutional??????

The constitution does not give the president the power or the authority to put together a secret army with no judicial or congressional accountability or oversight. A secret military arm with a black budget and available to assassinate anyone, American or foreign, that the president feels inclined to assassinate. Nor does the constitution permit the president to secretly arm foreign countries or agencies with no congressional or judicial review.

This president must appear before a select committee at the very least, and if evidence supports, face impeachment by the house and trial by the senate.

If this does not happen now, we have lost the country. Every citizen, like it or not, now has a clear and present duty to do.

It would be very much like Obama to have special forces operating in secret and reporting to someone nominally in Homeland Security. This will be the group called on to assassinate the leaders of the coming revolution that starts at the grass roots level when people realize their rights have been ended.

Anyone who served in the military understands the importance of chain of command and unity of command.
This president´s handlers are violating those concepts, which, in the end, will cause them substantial grief.
Military field grade officers and above must be beside themselves, as they watch what the kenyan klown is doing.
And putting brennan in charge of anything is no different than putting your slightly crazy uncle in charge of the family reunion.

The attack location at Benghazi was obviously a CIA operating base that was using the "Consulate" as cover. That´s why the administration has not publicly identified all of the 30 or so survivors who some in Congress want to de-brief.

Obozo, Biden, Clinton, Brennan, Patraeus, Rice, et al, knew what was going on all the time, and are now they covering up for that clown, Obozo. They´re all lying!!!

They were arming Al Qaeda and it blew up in their face. Not only that, there are allegations of their gunrunning to Syria.

It´s more likely that Stevens knew everything and that´s why they let him die.

Nixon was forced into resignation after Watergate because of the very real threat of impeachment. The media made a huge deal of Watergate and was never going to shut up.

Nixon was never impeached. He was threatened with impeachment, and resigned before it happened.

The situation is very different now. The media is still (mainly) covering up for Benghazi. Without the media manipulating the opinions of the LoFo´s in America, Impeachment of Obama over Benghazi (even if successful) could backfire into another Democrat Presidential election in 2016.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds?

What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats.

Sylvia Mathews Burwell, President Obama’s nominee to lead the country’s health care overhaul, remains entangled in a lawsuit brought by shareholders of MetLife accusing her of misleading investors as a director of one of the country’s biggest insurance companies. The federal lawsuit, filed in New York, says the company used a Social Security death index to stop making payments when beneficiaries died, but the company wasn’t as diligent about using the database to track deaths of its policyholders, which triggers payouts, the lawsuit said. Last year, a judge refused to toss a federal lawsuit against the company, including claims against Ms. Burwell

Mr. Holder is challenging that vote in court. Rep.

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)
