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.

Unfortunately this horror story will stay moot until we, and only us, take it to the streets. The socialist´s will keep ignoring and obfuscating.

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 Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

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

“Am I going to be an outcast?” A friend, who recently moved to an upscale neighborhood in Madison, Wis., called me last week to ask if she would be able to make mommy friends if she continued feeding her children — gasp! — non-organic food. She had just come back from the park where two mothers were discussing a recent vacation to a resort in Puerto Rico. One told the other that there, for the first time, her toddler was given Jif peanut butter. He loved it. Prior to that he had only had Whole Foods peanut butter, which (one might

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.

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags.

The opposing teams,?most of whom brought only a handful of players, some in a mishmash of college sweatshirts,?stopped to watch in awe and dread.

On upcoming trip, Obama

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

While the media is obsessed with the Koch brothers this campaign season, a billionaire hedge fund manager from San Francisco just bought off the White House to the tune of $100 million in order to delay the Keystone XL pipeline decision. From Fox News: The Obama administration once again has punted on a final decision for the Keystone XL pipeline, announcing ahead of the holiday weekend it is extending a key review period indefinitely — a move that could push off a determination until after the midterm elections.

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

One of the Obama administration’s favorite themes is the idea that Republicans have been waging a “war on women.” Though Democrats may overestimate the appeal of this canard, the notion that troglodyte conservatives seek to send American women back to the 19th century has become a form of conventional wisdom, especially in the liberal mainstream media. But though that war is a piece of fakery rooted in the confusion between political liberalism and gender equality, there is little doubt about the reality of another war on women: the one that is being waged by left-wing ideologues against any female Republican

Turning the tables remains the first refuge of liars called on their mendacity. “I was hurt,” Elizabeth Warren relays in her new autobiography, “and I was angry.” The second-year senator speaks of her 2012 political opponent using her claims of Native American ancestry against her during the campaign. Elizabeth Warren could pass for Bull Connor’s sister. She couldn’t pass for Sitting Bull’s second cousin five times removed. So when the 2012 debate descended into genealogists arguing over whether Warren’s great-great-great grandmother was or wasn’t partly Cherokee, the law-professor-turned-candidate winning the question meant that she had already lost it.

Some good folks are pig-biting mad about my recent article noting that the rate of foreclosures has dropped dramatically as a result of the reinflation of the real estate market.(Snip for tweet)Some of the vituperation is coming from the usual gang of housing justice fairness activists incensed that anybody (let alone a majority of homeowners and experts) would oppose the practice of giving public assistance to people who borrowed money with no intention of paying it back.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

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

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

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

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
