A closer look at the Benghazi lie
Washington Times, by Tom Fitton

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 12/10/2013 4:50:08 AM

The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was

The best and maybe only way to blow this case wide open would be the release of all of Amb.Steven´s emails to the state dept.Of course they´ve probably already destroyed all this evidence which should lead to a huge obstruction of justice charge on eveyrbody involved in the spin aftermath.

I think Stevens was murdered by his own government and we paid the terrorists to carry out the attack. This video story along with the 911 anniversary date were part of the cover up plot.

There has to be a very dirty secret to all this or they wouldn´t go through all the lying and cover ups.Even Obama not being available for response could be seen as a dereliction of duty.

Issa, Grassley and Boehner already have more than enough to nail the Obama administration to the wall over Fast & Furious, yet they refuse to pursue it. Why would they pursue this?

I believe #1 is correct and that is why this dastardly deed keeps getting "pivoted" by Zippy and his cohorts. There is something here that is unspeakably evil - it will come out.

#1...there was an interesting story a few months ago about how Russian intel had discovered the "running guns for the rebels in Syria" operation, and Obambi didn´t want to be exposed in the helping of the muslum bro´s. He wanted the whole thing cleaned up quickly so he could go to bed.

The Low-T Republicans do not have the fortitude to pursue a black President who they believe is held in high esteem by the country. Low-Ts ignore polling numbers and hope no one is paying attention to them. Like Obama in 2012, they just want to get throught the next election.

Senate attention could go a long way to resolving this. Maybe a serious challenge to John Cornyn will light a fire in that office.

Our ambassador and his staff died to protect Obama’s image on the eve of his re-election.

Obama’s only claim to any international achievement was his killing of Osama Bin Laden. That death was, according to the Democrats, proved that there were no ill effects of Obama’s insistence that America should no longer be strong.

Truth about the death of our ambassador would prove that we were both hated and weak. So, instead, the absurd lie about the video was invented to take the heat off Obama and allow him to sail back into the White House still claiming that he had Al Quida on the run.

It is outrageous that there seems to be no urgency to get to the truth of Benghazi. The act of outright lying to the American people by this vile administration should have lead to the questioning, under oath, of Obama by Congress. It has been proven that Obama and his lackeys knew they will telling a lie and yet, there have been NO consequences of that act. Where is the outrage? There are four Americans dead and many others wounded some very seriously. The President lied to the American public. Period. Have we gotten to the point in this country that integrity means nothing? The families deserve to know the truth. Obama should be MADE to testify and face the consequences of his actions. Nothing less should satisfy anyone. The fact that Hillary had the nerve to screech, "What difference, at this point, does it make?", and NO ONE challenged her says a lot about the state of politics today. Washington is a cesspool of amoral fools.

Folks, although I would love to see Obama impeached and the entire regime investigated, it just isn´t going to happen and I can see why.

First without majority support in the Senate it can never get done. Second the media would paint the Republicans day in day out as evil racist, who had always blocked every move Obama wanted to make and continually work against him. Third, the Republicans recall how many rallied behind Clinton in his trail because of the press and the many who felt sorrow for him.

Both of these charlatans can play the public like violins, especially, with thier large supporting cast of worshippers. Obama hopes they would try to impeach him...he and his fellowers would have a field day.

I support the ACLJ monetarily because they actually produce results. I hope you will consider doing so.

There are none so blind as those that will not see. Even if God came down and said that obama and hillary did this on purpose to save their careers the left would deny it and call Him racist. I cannot imagine what pain it must cause the families of Benghazi and Fast and Furious and all the military that died because of the new ´rules of engagement´ to have seen these people standing beside the coffins holding the bodies of any military or border agents . May God grant them His comfort.

JoeVan,

I disagree with one of your points. This doesn´t compare to Clinton´s foibles at all. There were actually four Americans who died on Obama´s unwatchful watch. I believe the public would largely ignore the MSM if the entire truth were to explode. A Senate majority in 2016 might finally lead to something. I can dream, can´t I?

I think the Americans killed and injured on the 9-11 attack in Benghazi were involved in a covert gun running scheme of Ghadaffi´s heavy weapons/arms to the rebels Al-Quaida in Syria.
They were exposed and Stevens either found out or was involved and all were exposed by someone. E-mails up to the attack would tell all. Obama and Hillary were derelict in duty for some reason. We know it was close to the election and Obama didn´t want a road block so Valarie Jarrett tucked him in bed and told him she would come up with something. We now know what the plan/excuse was.
If you don´t believe what I just said then I suggest you go with the disgruntled movie critic story.
Where is the movie producer? Is he still in jail as Obama´s first political prisoners?

First and foremost, we should all be committed to the single unifying goal of stopping HRC in her tracks.
We CAN do this. Benghazi is Hillary´s #1 vulnerability and even lofo voters would not approve of her refusing aid to a gay ambassador under attack. She CANNOT run if we keep Benghazi front and center because she cannot allow herself to be publicly drawn into that conversation. One way to do this is to force her into hiding by showing up at her public venues en bloc, in silent protest holding "BENGHAZI: HILLARY´S SHAME" or "WHO´S RESPONSIBLE FOR AMB STEVENS DEATH?" signs with bits and pieces of her famous screech: "I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you´re not patriotic." LOCAL media would cover it if enough of us participated. HRC would be forced to alter or discontinue her future scheduled public venues. She hides when she´s threatened.
But hundreds/thousands of us must show up! How do we organize such a happening? Where do we go to put ideas into action? Why can´t we organize on a national level? We´ve got to stop sitting around and whining!

I "think" these are the facts: Nakoula, the producer of the infamous video, is "out" as of Sept and on probation. In August I heard an interview of him while he was in a half-way house. It turned my stomach because he ´likes´ Obama and doesn´t blame him, just the faceless administration. "No comment" on HRC. Doesn´t the man realize he was vilified to get Obama re-elected and Obama himself blamed the video? My head explodes sometimes with the blind devotion to Obama.

It is impressive that this story has not died, but it will be hard to get justice with all the chaos our leader has dealt. I salute those who are devoted to seeing justice.

It isn´t only the network priests covering up Benghazi, it´s Boehner, Cantor, McCain, Buchanan, Rove, Chainey, each and every republican, who by their daily silence, and missing urgency, are also converting up this terrifying information from all of us American citizens.
We leave one lonely Issa type to plod along uneventfully. It´s thrilling to see JUDICIAL WATCH out there in the headline again, pursuing the truth. Sickening
that Judicial Watch does not have the wide open support
of many of our supposed good guys already !
Exposing the Evita/Barry cover up of this totally frightening disaster, will mean the career end of both these despicable liars. Judicial Watch knowing there is suppressed video and further revealing email correspondence, will finalize their downfall.

If I were involved in this cover up, I´d be afraid, very afraid, because I am dealing with intelligent, accomplished, and proven task masters.

Last week, i think it was, i received an email. It was on Benghazi, it was a series of photos with some descriptive text.

I began to scroll down to the first photo.

I have to tell you that even as i write this the nausea rises and chokes. This photo is purportedly Ambassador Stevens **in extremis** whether dead or not i don´t know.

Too gruesome, too horrible, too enraging if this is what happened to the Ambassador... OR ANYONE, if what is seen is as described.

Inadvertently i deleted the email, but i plan to ask Sen. Ayotte about this; because if there is evidence like this, of what really happened to the Ambassador, sensibilities ought not be spared.

The truth matters, above all. Yes, Hillary, at this point it DOES matter and it always will.

#18 – Regarding the maker of the excuse video, it has long been my theory that he was an “operative” of the regime and your tidbit of information adds to this assertion. He is neither an innocent victim nor a political prisoner of the Obama cabal.

The first reference to violence sparked by an “offensive” video was part of the “official comment” made by the U.S. Embassy in Cairo in response to the Muslim Brotherhood backed demonstration at their location during the day of September 11, 2012. This indicates that “a video” had already been selected as the scapegoat to blame for the planned attacks against American interests on the 11th anniversary of 9-11. I think the Cairo demonstration was intended to “set the stage” for the planned night raid on the Benghazi location.

Within a few days the propaganda ministry (MSM) had released the name of the video maker, including specific references that he was a Coptic Christian implying his “slander” was religiously motivated. Before any independent journalists could talk to the video maker he was publicly arrested by the Los Angeles County Sheriffs on the charge of a probation violation, a convenient restriction against all use of the Internet, and was quickly whisked behind prison walls and held incommunicado.

The video maker is a convicted fraud. Only the propaganda ministry claimed he was a Coptic Christian. No one from the Coptic or immigrant Egyptian community spoke on his behalf. No lawyer, not even the ACLU, or family members made a stink that he was being unfairly jailed, even after the sham of the video excuse was publicly exposed.

I contend that the cabal has dozens of videos in the can ready to trot out to cover up their destabilization of the Middle East and northern Africa. In this case there was an Egyptian, convicted of fraud, probably a Muslim Brotherhood sympathizer, who would make a good operative to take the fall for a plea deal. I’d like to see this “video maker’s” bank account.

The Obama administration could keep the news from affecting their own reelection.

Yet by pushing it back, effect on the next election should be magnified. The administration and their news media propagandists are already taking a beating for their lack of truthfulness on a range of issues.

Here´s the Big Picture.

The way to win the 2014 midterm elections and have majorities in both the
House and Senate starting in 2015 is to bring out the bombshells
(in this case probably literally) during the months leading up to November 2014.
This time period is known as the run-up.

Issa and his committee have been gathering evidence and doing a thorough job
during the interim, so they can bring out their biggest points at
the most advantageous time.

This is probably also why Boehner has just made a budget deal.
Keep the focus on Americans´ hatred of O-BomberKommieKare...
don´t let the MSM refocus blame on the GOP House for a shutdown.

If O-BomberKommieKare and Benghazi are big negative issues against
the DimWitz in the run-up to the 2014 voting, that may help.
Once the GOP controls both House and Senate in 2015, we´ll get to
The Rest of the Story... fighting O-Bomber and Hill-err-ee-ass in every way.

Harry Reid isn’t backing down from his claim that rancher Cliven Bundy’s supporters are “domestic terrorists.” It’s astonishing rhetoric given the White House’s characterization of the mass shooting by a genuine terrorist, Major Nidal Hasan, who killed 13 Americans at the Fort Hood Army base after yelling “Allahu Akbar!” (God is great.) Rather than labeling Hasan’s actions “domestic terrorism,” the Obama administration is prosecuting him for having committed “workplace violence.” Democratic rhetoric is become ever more desperate and overheated as we approach the November midterm elections.

Obama admin wants to require companies

The Obama administration is poised to change regulations to allow for union “ambush elections” in which workers have less time to decide whether or not to join a union — and in which workers’ phone numbers and home addresses are provided to unions. The administration’s National Labor Relations Board’s (NLRB) proposed rules would allow for union elections — in which workers at a company vote whether or not to unionize — to be held 10 days after a petition is filed. And what, exactly, would be happening to the unions during those 10 days? The new rules require employers to disclose

Billionaire hedge fund operator and “green” energy magnate Tom Steyer has pledged $100 million in the 2014 election cycle to help Democratic candidates who oppose the Keystone pipeline and who favor “green” energy over fossil fuels. Steyer claims to be a man of principle who has no financial interest in the causes he supports, but acts only for the public good. That is a ridiculous claim: Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his “green” energy investments profitable.

What happens when presidents lie? The American public has had plenty of experience with this in recent years. Liar-president could be the new hyphenate occupation like writer-producer or architect-contractor. Almost every president has shaded things a bit, but three modern ones have been unabashed bull artists — Richard Nixon, Bill Clinton and, of course, Barack Obama. Clinton ultimately got a pass for his prevarications. Nixon didn’t. Neither deserved one. But our current liar-president deserves one even less, because his lies have been of substance, affecting policy. Nixon and Clinton just lied in self-defense — normal human cowardice. Obama is something else again. He

When President Obama trumpeted the 8 million figure representing people who had signed up for ObamaCare, he didn’t just declare it a victory. He declared the debate over — and told Republicans “it’s well time to move on.” Now, we understand the eagerness of politicians to declare debates over. It’s certainly easier than defending ObamaCare’s broken promises, or even providing the breakdowns behind that 8 million top-line number that would let us measure if the program is getting the sign-ups it needs. Increasingly, however, it seems that the “shut up and move on” trope has become the go-to response of liberals on

A disturbing story out of the Sooner State this week, noted by Doug Mataconis at Outside the Beltway. Under the terms of a recently passed bill, expected to be signed by Governor Mary Fallin, homeowners who install their own private solar or wind turbine energy resources and sell some of the juice back to energy companies will be paying a fee for the privilege. Utility customers who want to install rooftop solar panels or small wind turbines could face extra charges on their bills after legislation passed the Oklahoma House of Representatives on Monday. Senate Bill 1456 passed 83-5 after no debate

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love. Their lives are changed forever and so are the lives of many, many

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the

Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. 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. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

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. It is quite possible that the ACA is

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a

“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. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

It’s time for Western states to take control of federal lands within their borders, lawmakers and county commissioners from Western states said at Utah’s Capitol on Friday. More than 50 political leaders from nine states convened for the first time to talk about their joint goal: wresting control of oil-, timber -and mineral-rich lands away from the feds. "It’s simply time," said Rep. Ken Ivory, R-West Jordan, who organized the Legislative Summit on the Transfer for Public Lands along with Montana state Sen. Jennifer Fielder. "The urgency is now." Utah House Speaker Becky Lockhart, R-Provo, was flanked by a dozen participants, including

If expanding the guest list to include Michelle Obama at graduation for high school students in the Kansas capital city means fewer seats for friends and family, some students and their parents would prefer the first lady not attend. A furor over what the Topeka school district considers an honor has erupted after plans were announced for Obama to address a combined graduation ceremony for five area high schools next month an 8,000-seat arena. For some, it was the prospect of a tight limit on the number of seats allotted to each graduate. For others, it was the notion that Obama´s speech,
