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.

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.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts.

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come.

“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics.
