A Deadly Mix in Benghazi
New York Times, by David D. Kirkpatrick

Original Article

Posted By:LComStaff, 12/28/2013 2:21:59 PM

Benghazi, Libya - A Boyish-Looking American Diplomat was meeting for the first time with the Islamist leaders of eastern Libya’s most formidable militias. It was Sept. 9, 2012. Gathered on folding chairs in a banquet hall by the Mediterranean, the Libyans warned of rising threats against Americans from extremists in Benghazi. One militia leader, with a long beard and mismatched military fatigues, mentioned time in exile in Afghanistan. An American guard discreetly touched his gun. “Since Benghazi isn’t safe, it is better for you to leave now,” Mohamed al-Gharabi, the leader of the Rafallah al-Sehati Brigade, later recalled telling the

The NYT and Kirkpatrick are hand jacking for Hillary for sure. They are setting the stage for her defensive arguments.

Never forget an American diplomat was killed on her watch. The enemy had scoped the area and zeroed their mortars on the compound; therefore, careful planning by the enemy. Request for more security were denied.

Hillary has blood on her hands. "Out damned spot."

FTA: "And contrary to claims by some members of Congress, it was fueled in large part by anger at an American-made video denigrating Islam."

Reading this makes one wonder if it´s yet another obfuscation by 0bama to save PIAPS for 2016. I think it was now about the infighting as to who would control the "promised" KFC & McDonald franchises. Lot of money and laundering to be done with them.

I waded through the first page and came to the conclusion that in a situation where we couldn´t trust anyone, we trusted almost everyone. We had Libyan militia provide security, an unarmed British outfit doing something, and some very serious ex-Seals doing something else when the attack went down.

All the Libyans either abandoned their posts or actively interfered with American forces trying to come to the aid. I have often wondered whether the final attack came after the team from Tripoli was followed to the annex.

Bottom line, muslims lie. Never trust your ears and watch your back. We may never know what happened in Benghazi but we do know that Hillary and Barry refused to add security and refused to send in reinforcements to people dying in the field. We need to keep reminding Americans of that fact if she is brazen and stupid enough to run for POTUS in 2016.

The Times, despite its drastic lack of readership, thinks saying it will make it so (and pave the way for Hillary, I am sure.) We stopped reading the NYTimes about 15 years ago, after never being without it, just because of this kind of naked political news reporting....unfortunately, the Brian Willaims´ of this world still treat it as their Bible. I am positive any of the factual debunking of this excerpt will never make the network news.

The very minute I became aware of this NYT article and the book, I knew it had something to do with Hillary. Many of her followers and worshippers will do whatever they can to smooth the way for her. It´s going to come from many directions, in many forms….by the trainload and the ´bellyful´, for sure.

I do not believe a word of it, or the story this book will try to convey. We´ve already heard from many people who were close to this fiasco, and know better. Again, you Hillaryites, we´re not that stupid.

The conservatives will have to unite, or she will be our next president. The media will do everything imaginable to get her elected. But they can´t beat us if we are united.

Reading this article caused a terrible stench to fill my home from all the BS it was spewing. I really couldn´t believe that someone, anyone, would try to pass off this story about a video that no one has seen would have caused the Benghazi attack. And that Al Qaeda wasn´t involved in the attack. I was under the impression that all of that was discounted not long after the attack. And by truthful institutions. But, the NYT must have the greatest "investigative reporters" on the planet. And it only took 15 months to do so. /s

The High Ministry of Propaganda starts here, along with
60 Minutes. A few weeks ago 60 Minutes did a Benghazi " the real story" without mentioning the name of either Hitlary or Barry.. This NYSlimes piece is part of a pattern to establish quotes to defend the murders. The commie cabal is desperate to get rid of this burden of Benghazi lies. Both perpetrators are equally responsible for this murderous catastrophe, and both must be held to account for this DOUBLE evasion. One or both of these two destroyers of America could have stopped this brutal betrayal, and both turned a blind eye to the safety of our men. We have two revolutionary communists in our bombsights, both of them attempting to collapse this
great nation into servitude. Both need to be impeached Oh, that´s right right, the murderess Hitlary was already impeached as co-president.
These are desperate, vengeful people. Never forget!

A transparent attempt to sew up and darn the the pantsuit so seriously unraveled by Benghazi. As it turned out, you see, Benghazi made a big difference... in the 2016 polling. The Dems are all about fooling people and the corrupt news media is simpatico and happy to lend a hand in the foolery. The truth renders Dems unelectable.

The recent theft of massive amounts of highly sensitive U.S. military equipment from Libya is far worse than previously thought, Fox News has learned, with raiders swiping hundreds of weapons that are now in the hands of militia groups aligned with terror organizations and the Muslim Brotherhood. The equipment, as Fox News previously reported, was used for training in Libya by U.S. Special Forces. The training team, which was funded by the Pentagon, has since been pulled, partly in response to the overnight raids last August. According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV´s, provided

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'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

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.

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?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
