WH: Obama Called Hillary at 10PM on
Night of Benghazi Attack--About Same
Time Clinton First Publicly Linked
Attack to YouTube Video

Cybercast News Service, by Fred Lucas

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/20/2013 8:54:32 PM

President Barack Obama called Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at approximately 10 p.m. on the night of the terrorist attacks on the U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told CNSNews.com. That was more than six hours after the attacks started, more than an hour before Tryone Woods and Glen Doherty were killed--and about the time that Clinton first released a statement linking the attacks to “inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” a reference to an anti-Muslim video on YouTube. “Like every president before him, he has a national security adviser and

The regime can´t seem to keep their stories straight. I thought Gibbs was bad, Carney is equally as bad if not worse.

The Libya debacle was Hillary´s baby from the get go and her first instinct (Paula Jones, Billy Dale, Whitewater subpoenas, Vince Foster etc...ad infinitum) has ALWAYS been to lie. It´s her signature move. Whether camp Rodham or the Kingdom of Hussein first came up with the cover-up, they are BOTH equally culpable and warrant prosecution.

This does have Hillary Clinton written all over it. Remember when she fired the WH Travel Office? As soon as she started catching flak, she claimed that Billy Dale had been doing something illegal. Which turned out to be a[nother] lie.
The whole video excuse for the Benghazi attack has that same smell.
It does seem possible that they had planned a Stevens/Blind Sheik exchange as an October surprise publicity stunt. Then it didn´t work out and they knew if they threw out any excuse, however laughable, the media would run with it.

So, the campaign ad saying Hillary was more able to handle the 3am phone call shows that the call came, they both got it and they both messed it up. It has nothing to do with the timing since it was during normal waking hours but everything to do with deceit, treachery and a plan to cover up something more sinister. They don´t have the memory this but the media - the real enemy, gives them a pass.

From Victor Davis Hanson´s article, "Brave New World" at PJ Media.

There Is No Media

About four years ago, the media just dissipated. Gone, buried. Did we notice our newsreaders are virtual government employees? The media is a Ministry of Truth where spokespeople vie for superlatives — a living “god,” a man who creates tingles in our legs and is pictured as a “messiah” on our magazines. Each sermon is a new “Gettysburg Address,” each gesture is Lincoln’s, each new Joe Biden or Hillary Clinton part of the new Lincoln’s “Team of Rivals.”

Journalists are now Photoshoppers of news: Guantanamo once bad, now good; we all grew to stop worrying and to love Predators; renditions, the Patriot Act, and preventative detentions must have gone with George W. Goldstein.

Those noisy free-for-all press conferences are now like Xerxes’s court at Persepolis, where toadies compete with kowtows. “Investigative reporting” is how some reactionary, enemy-of-the-people hacks dig up dirt on a progressive like Sen. Menendez or Susan Rice. The video maker sitting in jail and the 16-year-old American who was vaporized were reactionary troublemakers — and that is all ye need to know.

And THAT, ladies and gentlemen, is why the TRUTH of the Benghazi Massacre will not come out. Not until there is a MASSIVE change in this country.

Clinton and Obama blaming the attack on an internet video reminds me of the dumb blond in the car insurance commercial – Man working curb side on an car accident reort.

Nor did Ryan´s office return calls from CNSNews.com asking him what he thought those more effective ways were. “You know, rather than sort of swinging for the fences and trying to take this entire law out with discretionary spending, I think there are more effective ways of achieving that goal,” Ryan said in an interview on CBS’ “Face the Nation.” Sen.

There are growing concerns that an al Qaeda affiliate could use a new generation of liquid explosive, currently undetectable, in a potential attack, according to two senior U.S. government officials briefed on the terror threat that has prompted the closing of nearly two dozen U.S. embassies. Though the Transportation Security Administration has long been concerned about liquid explosives being used in potential devices -- as it was during the failed Christmas Day bombing in 2009 -- the new tactic allows terrorists to dip ordinary clothing

As the one year anniversary of the deadly attack on an American consulate in Benghazi approaches, journalists have begun to take another look into the scandal surrounding the government’s response to that terrorist event. Last week, CNN aired two striking reports revealing that the Central Intelligence Agency had a large number of agents on the ground on the night of the attack and that a suspect in the attack has never been interviewed by investigators. Following these revelatory reports, which some in President Barack Obama’s administration believe represent a political threat,

While other elements of Obama´s Organizing for Action are planning high-tech and expensive assaults in August on GOP lawmakers, the ´blizzarding´ strategy calls on small groups or even individuals to promote the president´s agenda with a door-to-door campaign followed by hyped up social media.

In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu

There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language.

For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.

Today, across Africa, Araby and Asia, from Nouakchott to Dhaka, the diplomatic facilities of the United States are closed. There’s a Tsarnaev out there, somewhere – could be the Mahgreb, the Levant, the Horn of Africa, the Indian sub-continent – who knows? So, as Richard Fernandez writes, “Shelter in place, this time globally.” Maybe it will work. Maybe by the end of the day there will be, unlike Benghazi a year on, men in custody. But if not?

Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said Sunday on "Face the Nation," but considering the country granted asylum to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden, U.S. allies should try to move next month´s G-20 gathering from St. Petersburg.

Unquestionably, the media stirred up racial animus, and these incidents both contributed to raising racial tensions.

Douse, who was arrested in May on attempted murder charges for shooting a 15-year-old, fired at the man running on East 151st Street this morning, police said.

Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”

Despite all the efforts at affirmative action, as a whole, the top tier of colleges is making racial inequality worse, rather than better. (snip) Sooner or later, history will note that affirmative action deeply damaged the progress blacks were already making in the pre-civil rights era.
