CNN has uncovered exclusive new information about what is allegedly happening at the CIA, in the wake of the deadly Benghazi terror attack. Four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens, were killed in the assault by armed militants last September 11 in eastern Libya. Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret. CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy
CIA agents were only in Benghazi to help locals in designing a suitable mausoleum for Qaddafi. Shouldn´t be too ostentatious but still befitting a dictator of his stature. Or, agents were passing out absentee ballots so that Islamic terrorists could vote for Obama. Or, agents were conducting town halls on ObamaCare. Whatever, it was all perfectly innocent.
Truth is slowly dripping out, but the election was last year.
If the CIA is "so scared" as to threaten its own operatives & their families, allow the murder of an American Ambassador [Chris Stevens] and three men when they could have been rescued, the stakes could only be high enough to include one thing: NUCLEAR WEAPONS & their transfer within the region.
Since we never got the ones from Iraq, it would be a good guess that Libya, Syria, Iran, Egypt would be the hiding places for Muslim terrorist of this type of threat.
FTA: In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, You don´t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well. Another says, You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation.
Our government operates more like a thug enterprise every day. Even family members are being frightened into silence.
At the end of this article, it says a State Department e-mail denies that State was involved in transferring any weapons anywhere, but that they could not speak for any other agencies.
Which would leave the CIA as the agency involved in that, as far as we know.
However, previous speculation we´ve seen in reports posted here claimed that the CIA refused to take part in supplying weapons to Libyans opposing Kaddafi, and that the State Department had then done so instead, and that Ambassador Stevens was trying to get those weapons back from the Libyans at the time he was in Benghazi and died.
It´s going to take some doing to sort all this out and get at the real truth... especially since at least two biggies... O-Bomber and Hill-err-ee-ass Herself... don´t want any of it to come out.
If only Anthony Weiner had been our ambassador to Libya at that time. Many of our problems would have been (perhaps) solved... And the explanation for Weiner´s assault and murder would have been... Al Queda elements resisted having his surface to air missile exposed to them.
NOW I am seeing a light bulb go off.. Johnnie Boehner will NOT allow a select committee to investigate Benghazi...what did Obama promise Boehner to quash this? Boehner needs to be removed..or resign, I don´t care which..he needs to spend more time with his family. s/
If you think about it...why was there a drone there...where was Obama....where was Clinton...who made the decision to let these folks fend for themselves...who double-crossed the Libyans...what was Morsi´s involvement...what was the Turkish diplomat doing there...was Stevens being setup to be kidnapped...Tom Clancy wouldn´t have written this as plausible...yet all of this seems entirely plausible...and now the CIA are taking the double-secret-probation lie detector tests....good Lord
Almost nothing about this on CNN until Mr. Jake Tapper made the switch to CNN from ABC. Could this actually be serious reporting? At the bottom of the article there is a suggestion to view a CNN special on Benghazi next Tuesday night. We´ll see with that report whether or not CNN is serious about its Benghazi reportage.
Meanwhile, Obama goes around doing campaign stops and the robots continue to applaud him and treat him like a rock star. Dumb, dumb, dumb people. How can we take another torturous three years? Please, let Obama resign because he is tired. He looks tired, and he acts tired. And we the people are sooo tired of him.
Gateway Pundit has the video of Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who was on with Greta Van Susteren last night to discuss the Obama scandals. He said the Obama Administration is hiding the survivors, dispersing them around the country, AND changing their names.
“Including changing names, creating aliases. Stop and think what things are most calculated to get at the truth? Talk to people with first-hand knowledge. What creates the appearance and perhaps the reality of a cover-up? Not letting us talk with people who have the most amount of information, dispersing them around the country and changing their names.”
It takes 17 years to break a cover up backed by a president as demonstrated by recent news reports on the downing of flight 800. It has been believed that if a lot of people are in on the secret it would leak out. Not any more it seems. After that time what difference does it make!
My cynical spirit tells me that CNN´s revelation about Benghazi is a set up. the truth of Benghazi cannot be allowed ro be traced back to Obama or Hillary. I believe the CIA will take the fall for this. After all, everyone knows it is a "rogue" agency doing things under the radar so to speak. It will be found out that there are rogue elements that have been, unbeknownst to our dear, kind and caring president, moving arms around the Middle East. Obama will be shocked and will assure the American people that HE will get to the bottom of this so it will never happen again. Case closed. Questions answered. Move on.
A puzzling possibility... Benghazi happened the same time the phony riots happened in Egypt. IIRC, those riots happened after a Muslim Brotherhood visit to the White House. After the so called riots, Egypt was given billions in aid. Miraculously the riots stopped. I believe the Mohammed video story was cooked up in advance. What Obama had to gain by collusion with the unrest in Egypt is unknown. However, they stuck to their script and even attempted to explain away Benghazi with it. I believe Benghazi was unrelated to the Egypt "riots". I´ve said here before that facts seemed to point to a CIA op gone bad. We´ll see.
Congress seems to be where all truths go to die while this administration creates new and false history . obama and hillary greeting the very real body bags and speaking to the families while manufacturing lies to cover up the truth that it was their fault makes me ill.
Along the line of #9´s post, perhaps chemical weapons were used by the opposition and perhaps they had our finger prints upon them. All speculation of course but behavior such as we have seen suggests something rather significant was going on above and beyond simply manipulating the optics for the election.
Out of control against the People, IRS, NSA, CIA, BATF, even masked military arming of our own local police busting into homes with no warrant, jailing, confiscating personal property never to be returned, guilty or innocent, the Nazi-like Feinsteins controlling, indoctrinating, law abiding gun owners, southern borders held wide open for illegal aliens and Islamic terrorists to gain easy entrance, Catholic sanctuary and welfare given all illegals, an ignored vast criminal underworld of armed drug running gangs infiltrating America, Fast & Furious Holder promoting voting fakery without ID. Does this smell of runaway government? Is a Mussolini our muslim President? Top it all off with lobbyist bribing sponsors and a lobbyist bribed Congress, protected 24/7 by a censoring TV media, the blinded Diane Sawyers, Steve Pelleys, Tom Brokaws, looking straight at you from their network studios, not discussing, not investigating any of the above, while daily distracting millions of Americans, avoiding the truth. The stench of Benghazi avoided to protect dictators Obama and Clinton, is yet another terrifying clue of a collapsing series of continuous lies, and a government packed with cowards who will not come out, reveal the truth, fearful of losing incomes, retirements AND THEIR LIVES. John Boehner, Diane Sawyer, anybody in Congress or mainstream media could support the Mark Levins, New Media, bust it all wide open.
Working off of Tapper´s article, The Conservative Treehouse has a lot to say about this today. Dot connecting via articles from the archives. Some of the dots are Turkish president Erdogan, John McCain, etc.
#7 where to begin - the CIA has had its losses of personnel.... They have fewer protections if caught than do the military. I don´t know whether they have any, actually. They get killed all the time and the fact you don´t know about it is a pointer to the further grief of their families. They have ultra courage. The thing is, their families, no? But even at that, they are getting it out, or you would not be reading this article at all. No? so be gentler on them.
Now I´m starting to believe some lDotters who said Obama wanted Ambassador Stevens kidnapped so we could exchange him for one of the Muslim terrorist leaders. That would explain the "stand down" orders & the black ops CIA on the ground to facilitate & observe the capture of Stevens. Only both sides fought too hard & he died of smoke inhalation.
Starting. Because gun running is another scenario. This stinks to high heaven & that is good for stopping Hillary. Maybe those four men died to save our nation. It´s certainly better than dying for nothing & being stashed under the rug forever.
Excuse me, but does any L-Dotter remember reading a Lucianne.com poster make these points in those early hours and days? I apologize for not reading through all the comments here first today.....
But this is not a surprise to me. And the only place I would have read this already was here..... that there were 3 dozen people there, that there was a CIA outpost in Tripoli, which is where most of them were, that the operation under way was gun running of the Libyan weapons WE supplied to the Libyan rebels, to the newly developing Syrian rebels, through Turkey. And that the security ops who were ultimately killed disobeyed stand-down orders to help try to save the Ambassador and his crew? And that THAT´s why no one came to rescue THEM? Not even after SEVEN HOURS?!
Why Christopher Stevens was meeting with the - uh oh - TURKISH AMBASSADOR there in Benghazi was not known, or else I have forgotten it. But wasn´t it reported here at that time that Stevens was negotiating to get those weapons BACK? Or perhaps that he threatened to blow the lid off this operation, and so was set up? A Fast and Furious operation on a global scale in the Mideast, gone wrong.
I did not imagine all this, and I´m not learning about it new, now - I´m remembering it.
The near-continual polygraphing is new, however. Did we assassinate Qaddafi (but give ´credit´ to ´rebels´)? I recall Calypso Louie being VERY upset that Brother Barack had taken any part at all in offing Brother Moammar....
First Egypt, then Libya and the rest of North Africa. Now apparently we´re closing in on Israel, with a little of mainland and west Africa tossed in there. Worldwide Caliphate, here we come.
# 45 is spot on. The CIA has covert , paramilitary operatives stationed around the world ( SAD ) who have to know Barry will never have their back and will hang them out to dry in a minute. Like Johnny Mike Spann . He was a CIA operative working with the Norther Alliance just after 9/11. He was killed in the prison uprising in Mazar-i-Sharif Afghanistan on November 21, 2001. It took 7 days to for US and British Specials Forces, with air support to end the fighting. Unlike Benghazi , reinforcements were sent. The Commander in Chief was not asleep or playing tickle games with Reggie Love. Horse Soldiers by Doug Stanton is an excellent book detailing the heroics of the Special Ops and paramilitary CIA operatives who fought on horseback against the Taliban just after 9/11. What a difference in Commanders in Chief. One always had their backs, the other stabs them in the back.
Tyrone´s mothe said we don´t even know how he died. The reporter asked ´can´t you have the body examined,´? She said how can we? He was cremated. So where was that done? who ordered it? and what was thereport that was generated, because there has to be reports. The fureneral hom for my dad made a pint of him being identified and a report being signed. I can´t believe that a funeral directors can be intimidated and jeopardize their license. Subpoena every one involved on that level.
If memory serves, didn´t Patraeus resign just after this? Was the affair thing a cover up to what he knew really happened in Libya? PIAPS and zippy are up to their necks in this thing - someone remind them about how bitchy karma can be.
Methinks it´s just way too, too coincidental that mere hours after CNN posts the CIA story, we have the WH issuing all kinds of red herring alerts about impending Al Q attacks everywhere on everything and everybody. Barry needs to divert attention from the story so he can complete his golfing vacation among the lily white elites at the Vineyard. He should be so thankful this country doesn´t have a Robespierre (circa 1792).
We are --it seems-- on the brink of or in the midst of a Constitutional Crisis... wherein we´ve become a "nation of men and not of Laws", the reverse of what what the Founders designed our Republic to be.
We have got to support the Patriots who are on the ramparts.
We´ve got to exhort the weak-in-the-knees congressional representatives, those trembling in their shoes, unsure of what they really believe, to wake up:
there are traitors, qislings, Fifth Columnists, in their midst, in OUR midst, in the Body Politic, running roughshod.
As far as guessing the future goes, I think #29 nails it....the CIA will take the fall to protect Obama and Hillary. On Benghazi, but probably can´t on the IRS scandal.
As far as "known" events and early rumors go, my memory agrees with that of #48...and I think I read somewhere the the Turkish Ambassador knew about the upcoming operation and warned the Ambassador to clear out his people. However, that Ambassador was (I read long ago) involved in similar operations (yes, CIA-run) in the past and he was in Benghazi instead of Tripoli just to make sure the gun-running went off OK. And then the rebel Libyan forces/Al Qaeda got there first to get the guns.
I think Congress should subpoena whichever CIA members they think knows something and run a polygraph test on them in from of the TV cameras.
They won´t, because the American public will think it is such a charming idea that there might be a call to run polygraph tests on Congress.
My personal opinion of this whole thing is somebody is trying to keep the lid on Benghazi so Hillary can have a "clean" run in 16. Of course I don´t think Obama gives a rat´s patootie about Hillary. Maybe he´s covering his skinny butt.
What we know, think we know, and question here on Lucianne, much of it brilliant, the rest, at least a sincere attempt at the truth .......... is still not enough. There is so much grand deception, so many secret deaths. Go back to Blll and Hillary´s co- presidency. Over 125 of their associates were murdered, suicided, inexplicably died, given bribed coroner examinations, more than 125! It is widely known as "The Clinton Body Count". AKA, quite famously,"The Friends of Hlllary and Bill". Spend a few minutes studying, this grotesque, widely distributed internet truth. It can encourage looking into all the current Hillary and Obama premature, unexplained deaths. They are "in it" together, avoiding Benghazi truth with the visible help of all the blind, non-investigative news actors like Diane Sawyer, Steve Pelley, Brian Williams, Bill O´Reilly, and the invisible help of an army of CIA etc bureaucrats protecting their retirements, jobs and their lives (they don´t want to be on the Hillary Obama Death List, too). Ask Hillary, if she doesn’t consider herself Hussein’s co president, too. The pay off to keep quiet until she runs again. Now we have the ultimate symbolic retreat, closing down the embassies in Islamic controlled countries. Obama is an uncredited traitor, and his betraying commie-like partner, Hillary, is doing more to cover up than even she, ever bargained for. She is forever caught on the sinking Obama Islamic ship of crime.
The National Security Agency is gathering nearly 5 billion records a day on the whereabouts of cellphones around the world, according to top-secret documents and interviews with U.S. intelligence officials, enabling the agency to track the movements of individuals — and map their relationships — in ways that would have been previously unimaginable. The records feed a vast database that stores information about the locations of at least hundreds of millions of devices, according to the officials and the documents, which were provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden. New projects created to analyze that data have provided the intelligence community
There was an awkward moment at today´s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on Obamacare when a New York Democrat rapped GOP critics with quotes from a satirical New Yorker feature, The Borowitz Report. Rep. Carolyn Maloney, while calling it her own “distinguished comedic think tank,” quoted from several stories in the Borowitz satire blog as if they were accurate, most notably one in which author Andy Borowitz joked that Republicans are complaining that the problem-plagued Obamacare website is working too fast. She later called the blog a “distinguished report.” Maloney said, “The distinguished report went on to criticize
There´s a furor at the White House, and they did NOT SEE it coming. Also, Republicans came under attack over the weekend for a well-intended but impolitic tweet observing the 58th anniversary of Rosa Parks´s arrest for defying segregation on a Montgomery, Ala., municipal bus. "Today we remember Rosa Parks´ bold stand and her role in ending racism," read the tweet from the Republican National Committee´s institutional account. "Of course, there´s nothing controversial about celebrating a woman today who played a big role in the American civil-rights movement," writes National Journal´s Matt Berman. "What is bothering some people today, though, is the
Here the liberals go again: trying with all their might to prop up an increasingly unpopular piece of legislation. This time, no less than Robert Reich has attempted to take the "moral" high road and claim that there is a "moral imperative" to ObamaCare. Reich noted that recently he heard a young man express that he would rather pay a penalty than be forced by law to purchase health insurance. According to Reich, the young man asked, "Why should I pay for the sick and the old?" Reich´s answer is telling: "The answer is he has a responsibility to do so,
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has instructed the heads of Israel’s intelligence community to look for proof that Iran is violating an interim deal signed with the international community last week over its nuclear program, a British newspaper reported on Sunday. The Israeli spying effort to expose Iranian duplicity represents a direct challenge to US President Barack Obama’s efforts, it said. Mossad, as well as the IDF’s Military Intelligence Directorate, have been told to dig up evidence of Iranian duplicity ahead of Obama’s push to win support for the deal in Congress and thus head off legislators’ demands for further sanctions
For nearly 20 years, the secret code to authorize launching U.S. nuclear missiles, and starting World War III, was terrifyingly simple and even noted down on a checklist. From 1962, when John F Kennedy instituted PAL encoding on nuclear weapons, until 1977, the combination to fire the devastating missiles at the height of the Cold War was just 00000000. This was chosen by Strategic Air Command in an effort to make the weapons as quick and as easy to launch as possible, as reported by Today I Found Out. The Permissive Action Link (PAL) is a security device for nuclear weapons that it
The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told. In the most dramatic of those releases, the US in April released a top Iranian scientist, Mojtaba Atarodi, who had been arrested in 2011 for attempting to acquire equipment that could be used for Iran’s military-nuclear programs. American and Iranian officials have
As America struggles with high unemployment and record inequality, everyone is offering competing solutions to the problem. In this war of words (and classes), one thing has been repeated so often that many people now regard it as fact. "Rich people create the jobs." Specifically, by starting and directing America´s companies, entrepreneurs and rich investors create the jobs that sustain everyone else. This statement is usually invoked to justify cutting taxes on entrepreneurs and investors. If only we reduce those taxes and regulations, the story goes, entrepreneurs and investors can be incented to build more companies and create more jobs. This argument ignores the fact
The U.S. released a top Iranian scientist Mojtaba Atarodi in April as part of the dealings with Iran in Geneva recently, the Times of Israel reported. The secret back channel of negotiations between Iran and the United States, which led to this month’s interim deal in Geneva on Iran’s rogue nuclear program, has also seen a series of prisoner releases by both sides, which have played a central role in bridging the distance between the two nations, the Times of Israel has been told.

BARBARA WALTERS: I know that by now, you both have fairly thick skins. But when you hear your husband being booed, the president, at a recent basketball game, how do you feel? FIRST LADY MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of being president of the United States -- WALTERS: So, it doesn´t get to you? MICHELLE OBAMA: It´s part of the job. You know, I don´t really know what more to say, Barbara, except it´s, you know, it´s a hard job. I am fortunate to be living with a man who has a long view of this job. Who understands that in the case of
President Obama said Friday he’s confident that the troubled healthcare rollout won’t be the final word on how his signature legislative achievement is remembered. "I continue to believe and [I´m] absolutely convinced that at the end of the day, people are going to look back at the work we´ve done to make sure that in this country, you don´t go bankrupt when you get sick, that families have that security," the president said in an interview on ABC’s 20/20. "That is going to be a legacy I am extraordinarily proud of." The HealthCare.Gov website went live on Oct. 1, but has been
Mega-donor and Hollywood figure Haim Saban, a longtime Hillary Clinton backer, on Friday said he’d “pitch in with full might” if she launches a likely 2016 campaign, describing a growing consensus that she is President Barack Obama’s “natural successor.” The remarks to Israel’s Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper came several months after the media tycoon privately commissioned a movie about Clinton upon her departure from the State Department, featuring international figures including Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Obama singing her praises as Secretary of State. “I hope she will run. She would be a wonderful president,” said Saban, who gave $1 million last
The nation’s view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate. A new YouGov/Economist poll found Clinton, whose approval ratings have typically been sky high, with an unfavorable rating of 48 percent, more than the 46 percent who have a favorable opinion of her. The YouGov pollsters said that the change in American attitudes toward Clinton "suggests that negative press surrounding the tragic
President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
CNN host wondered out loud on his show this evening whether the physically unfit Chris Christie could follow the "perfect physical specimen" Barack Obama into the White House: "After the perfect Barack Obama, who´s a perfect physical specimen to many people´s eyes, does it matter?" Morgan asked his guest. "Or is actually somebody very different, someone who´s much more of a regular kind of guy who likes cheeseburgers and beer, but appears to be a straight talker, somebody perhaps more of a straight talker than it appears Barack Obama turned out to be?"
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
Nobody could accuse the press of ignoring the fiasco-on-a-server that is HealthCare.gov. The Obamacare website’s woes are dominating coverage on the network news, the cable talk shows, the blogs and, of course, high-octane websites like POLITICO. But did the press do a good job of covering the Affordable Care Act before the health care exchanges went online—sort of—on Oct. 1? Were we adequately warned of the troubles that were to come? And now that HealthCare.gov’s problems are headline news, is the coverage of it any better? Sure, one can find a few examples of one news outlet or another warning of impending
MSNBC´s Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday. The interview is part of Matthews´ "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C. According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington." On Monday our colleagues Carrie Budoff Brown and Jonathan Allen reported that the White House is launching a coordinated campaign to return attention to why the Affordable Care Act
MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews, Barack Obama´s most excitable fan, will be interviewing the President on Thursday´s Hardball. Fawning over the liberal politician is incredibly common among journalists, but Matthews has taken it to a whole new level. According to the network host, Obama is a "perfect," "cool," brilliant figure who is comparable to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The verbose Matthews has no filter when it comes to the Democrat, even once bizarrely blurting out that an Obama speech made him "forget" that the commander in chief "was black." To prepare you for the likely love-fest
