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.

Applying Occam´s Razor, the coverup was done to get Little Barry reelected. Four lives are a small price in their calculus.

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 truth is slow but persistent.

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.

"The heavens reek, the waters below are foul ... we are in a crisis of survival." That´s how Walter Cronkite and CBS hyped the first Earth Day, back in 1970. Somehow we´ve survived since then, and most of life got better, although I never hear that from the worrywarts. Of course, some things got better because of government: We passed environmental rules that got most of the filth out of the air and sewage out of lakes and rivers.

If Condoleezza Rice were as self-pitying and politically crass as Attorney General Eric Holder, she would be wondering aloud what it is about her race and gender that accounts for the hostility of her enemies. Rice’s recent speaking gigs on college campuses and her ascension to the board of the file-sharing company Dropbox have sparked protests calling for her to be disinvited, cashiered and generally isolated and shamed. Condi Rice is not a natural lightning rod. She’s such a disreputable figure that she’s on the board of the Kennedy Center and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. She’s such a lightweight

As a "government drone" hovers over Matt Rosendale, the Republican House candidate from Montana tells the camera what he thinks of government overreach, regulation, and "spying on our citizens." Then, standing in front of an ATV, Rosendale coolly puts a rifle to his shoulder, looks up through the sight and "downs" the drone with a single shot. "The federal government is too big and too powerful," Rosendale says. "I´m ready to stand tall for freedom and get Washington out of our lives," he says. Rosendale is trying to stand out in a five-way primary for Montana´s at-large seat in the House. Sporting a barn

A story is told about Robert L. Bartley, late editor of the Wall Street Journal, and his penchant for long silences.

The U.S. must stand behind
its security obligations
Washington Post, by Michael Chertoff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/17/2014 5:09:09 AM     Post Reply
On the eve of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003, Gen. James Mattis admonished the 1st Marine Division to “[d]emonstrate to the world there is ‘No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy.’” That motto could serve as a guiding principle for sound national security policy. Regrettably, our allies wonder whether the United States is demonstrating the reverse. Since leaving as secretary of homeland security in January 2009, I have talked with officials from friendly nations in Asia and the Middle East. Increasingly, I hear skepticism about whether the United States remains a reliable ally our friends can trust for support against attacks.

Texas Twins Campaign, but

SAN ANTONIO, Tex. — Mayor Julián Castro of San Antonio faced off in a televised debate on Tuesday against a Republican candidate for Texas lieutenant governor, even though Mr. Castro, officially anyway, is not running for anything at all. “Sometimes I get impatient,” Mr. Castro said on a recent afternoon here. “And I figure I have nothing else going on, so I might as well.” The mayor was joking, up to a point. Ever since he became the first Latino to give a Democratic National Convention keynote address in 2012, he and his identical twin brother, Representative Joaquin Castro, the Texas Democrat

What is the Census Bureau hiding? Census, which is under investigation by several government agencies and by Congress, is refusing to turn over an estimated 1,900 e-mails and text messages between a regional supervisor in its Philadelphia office, where falsification of unemployment data took place, and a colleague in its Chicago region, who a source has identified as the supervisor’s mentor and confidant. On March 5, under the Federal Freedom of Information Act, I requested all e-mails between Fernando Armstrong, the regional director of the Philadelphia office, and Stanley Moore, Chicago’s regional director, from 2010 until my filing date.

For Prison To Be Sentenced

CHICAGO -- Walter Unbehaun has spent nearly all of his adult life behind bars, so it´s not surprising that he faces sentencing Thursday for yet another crime, a bank robbery last year. His reason for robbing the bank is surprising, though: He was homesick for prison. The 74-year-old high-school dropout and part-time bathtub repairman probably isn´t the first long-term convict to find he prefers being barked at by guards to life on the outside, which has its own demands. But living alone and feeling unhappy, Unbehaun decided to change his situation by committing a crime in order to get caught. On Feb.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

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.

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

With Easter soon approaching, the Rev. Al Sharpton on Wednesday drew parallels between the resurrection of Jesus Christ and the resurrection of President Obama’s political career. Joining the “Tom Joyner Morning Show,” Mr. Sharpton said that his message for this Easter is that “no matter what the world may do to you unfairly, no matter how you’re crucified — nailed to the cross at home, or in your personal relationships, or on the job — that you can rise if you don’t lose yourself during the hard times and the challenges.” The reverend went on to say that Christ endured so much humiliation and unearned suffering leading up to his death,
