Folks, America is being ruled by Barack Hussein Obama, a Banana Republic Like Dictator that condemned four Americans to death and 3 additional Americans and 7 Libyans to serious wounds, in an attack against our Embassy in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. Both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton (Who is presently busy preparing a presidential exploratory committee for 2016 – can you believe) and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta (Brought in by Obama to devastate the military) are his deliberate accomplices in another act of malfeasance of epic proportions by president Obama.
Why is Congress and the American Public being stonewalled by this Administration? There was the Fast and Furious cover-up and now the Benghazi-Gate cover-up! Why are the Democrats and the media joining forces and circling the wagons? Why did Barrack Hussein Obama condemn 4-Americans to death? What was so important to hide that Americans had to die? Was it the big lie that we liberated Libya and it was nowfree of al-Qaeda? Was it that Libya was a staging point for weapons to Syrian Rebels? Or was it that the weapons that we supplied to Libya were making their way to al-Qaida in Mali and other regions?
What was so important to our national Security that we had to keep our Embassy and Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi?
Condemned to death were Benghazi Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith an Information Officer and Computer whiz and two former Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
David Kirkpatrick of the New York Times, quite conveniently, reported that they the assault was launched in retaliation for the release of the anti-Islamic video, Innocence of Muslims.
The videos that according to a consultant on the project, were “Trailers” from a full-length film which was shown only once, to an audience of fewer than ten people, at a rented theater in Hollywood California.
On September 16 U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice appeared on five major interview shows to discuss the attacks.
“Based on the best information we have to date, what our assessment is as of the present is in fact what began spontaneously in Benghazi as a reaction to what had transpired some hours earlier in Cairo where, of course, as you know, there was a violent protest outside of our embassy—sparked by this hateful video. But soon after that spontaneous protest began outside of our consulate in Benghazi, we believe that it looks like extremist elements, individuals, joined in that– in that effort with heavy weapons of the sort that are, unfortunately, readily now available in Libya post-revolution. And that it spun from there into something much, much more violent.” “We do not– we do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.””I think it’s clear that there were extremist elements that joined in and escalated the violence. Whether they were al Qaeda affiliates, whether they were Libyan-based extremists or al Qaeda itself I think is one of the things we’ll have to determine.”
On September 27, the FBI arrested Nakoula Basseley Nakoula a 55 year old Coptic Christian from Egypt living near Los Angeles , who wrote the script and produced the with parole violations related to the film.
On November 7, 2012, Nakoula plead guilty to four of the charges against him and was sentenced to one year in prison and four years of supervised release.
“A study released on November 2 found that leading newspapers in the U.S. framed the attack in terms of a spontaneous protest (the Obama administration’s version) four times as often as a planned terrorist attack (the Republican version)”
We now know that:
In April 2012 an IED bomb was thrown over the Cosulate fence
On May 2012, Al-Qaida attacked the International Red Cross. On August 16th they suspended operations in Benghazi
On June 5th, explosives were denoted outside the Consulate gates and leaflets promised more attacks.
On June 10th, an assassination attempt against the British Ambassador to Benghazi’s convoy was foiled when it was hit with RPG’s. The British Embassy was closed and all personnel withdrawn.
On September 8, Benghazi security officials met with US Embassy personnel and warned them of their growing concerns about their ability to maintain security
On September 11, Al Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri declared that al Libi’s death still needed to be avenged.
On September 11, an American Drone was recording the attack in real time and feeding it back to the Pentagon 1/12 hours after it began. The terrorists were coordinated and had Rocket propelled Grenades or RPG’s. In a senate hearing, Senator
On September 14th, CNN correspondent Arwa Damon found Ambassador Steven’s diary, wherein he expressed concern about the growing al-Qaeda presence in the area and his worry about being on an al-Qaeda hit list.
In Senate hearings, the CIA says that it knew from the outset that it was a coordinated Terrorist attack.
More than four months after the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic compound in eastern Libya, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will deliver long-awaited testimony on the historic security failure.
The secretary, after missing prior sessions before Congress due to illness, is set to take lawmakers’ questions Wednesday before a House and Senate committee. As Clinton prepares to leave the department after a busy four years, the hearing is a chance to address what is arguably the biggest controversy of her tenure.
“There’s no question there hasn’t been the accountability within the department,” Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., the incoming top Republican on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Fox News. “I think this is going to be the beginning, I hope … of a top-to-bottom review.”
Congress has already held multiple hearings to date, with lower-level officials testifying, on the Benghazi attack. The administration has gradually backed off its position that the attack was spontaneous — an assertion that drew the ire of congressional lawmakers who said it was clearly planned. An official State Department-sanctioned report has resulted in several officials leaving their current posts, after finding “systemic failures” left the Benghazi compound inadequately protected.
The hearing Wednesday, though, is a forum for lawmakers to question Clinton on what she might have known about requests for security at the Benghazi post — and what she thinks should be done to improve security going forward, as she prepares to leave the department. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., has been nominated to replace her.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday “there was no question” that Clinton “considered it her responsibility to learn the lessons from this, and to take the department forward in implementing whatever lessons were learned.”
There are also questions about how the Obama administration responded to the crisis during the Sept. 11, 2012 attack. Fox News has learned from senior U.S. defense officials that a FAST team of Marines out of Spain was asked by State Department officials to change out of their Marine uniforms after being asked to leave for Libya to help — this required them to deplane and delayed them by about 90 minutes, according to Pentagon officials.
Then there is the decision by Clinton and State Department Undersecretary of Management Patrick Kennedy not to mobilize the Counterterrorism Security Group, which is composed of experts on terrorism from across government agencies and makes recommendations to the deputies who assist the president’s Cabinet in formulating a response to crises involving terrorism.
Further, there are questions about the perceived delays CIA officials — stationed in Benghazi — encountered that night and their frustration that air support was not sent from nearby Sigonella air base. In recent weeks, Fox News has learned that the rescue unit that left Tripoli was told that “fast fliers” — or air support — would be above when they landed in Benghazi. They weren’t.
Still, the department’s review board concluded: “The Board members believe every possible effort was made to rescue and recover Ambassador Chris Stevens and Sean Smith. The interagency response was timely and appropriate, but there simply was not enough time for armed U.S. military assets to have made a difference.”
Lawmakers have waited months to ask Clinton direct questions about the Benghazi attack, in which U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed. That attack, though, may just be the starting point for Wednesday’s hearings amid mounting questions about the hostage crisis in Algeria and the French-led military campaign in neighboring Mali.
Corker told Fox News “there’s going to be a lot of questions about just the overall policies of this administration as it relates to” Al Qaeda’s affiliate in North Africa.
An Al Qaeda-tied operative has claimed responsibility for the attack at a gas plant in Algeria that left 37 hostages dead, including three Americans.
Corker suggested the developments challenge an administration that was “spiking the ball on Al Qaeda” last year as the U.S. chipped away at the group’s leadership in Pakistan and Afghanistan, and took out Usama bin Laden the year before that.
“That’s where the core of Al Qaeda (is), but there are all these nodes that are scattered through Africa now that obviously are a threat to Western civilization, and it’s as if they’ve taken their eye off the ball,” Corker said.
Clinton was preparing to testify in December, but fell ill and was unable to address Congress.
The State Department has thus far been sparing in its explanation of the separate Algeria attack.
Nuland said last week that Clinton spoke with the Algerian Prime Minister and “talked about the challenge that Algeria has had historically with terrorism.”
Clinton later said “it is absolutely essential that we broaden and deepen our counterterrorism cooperation going forward without Algeria and all countries of the region.”
She said she made clear to the prime minister that “we stand ready to further enhance the counterterrorism support that we already provide.”
Outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta also had tough words, saying those who try to attack Americans “will have no place to hide.”
On the House Foreign Affairs Committee, an aide to Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, also said it’s likely the Algeria hostage standoff will come up Wednesday.
Clinton plans to testify on the Senate side at 9 a.m. ET Wednesday, and at 2 p.m. on the House side.

Frm VP Al Gore Got The Sale In Before The End Of 2012!
Hillary Clinton: Al-jazeera It’s Real News!! – Big Al’s Deal With Al-Jazeera?
Al-jazeera. The Terrorist Network By Some Critic!!!
Glenn Beck’s Blaze Media approached the struggling cable news network last year, the Wall Street Journal reports, but was rebuffed because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”
Instead, Gore went with the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Al Gore sells Current TV to Al-Jazeera, nets reported $100 million
Former Vice President Al Gore has made himself a much, much richer man by selling his little watched cable channel Current TV to the Emir of Qatar-funded Arab news channel Al-Jazeera.
Gore netted $100 million with his 20 percent stake in the network when it was sold for a reported $500 million on Wednesday.
Al-Jazeera plans to euthanize the struggling, seven-year-old Current TV and turn it into Al-Jazeera America by adding five to 10 new U.S. bureaus beyond the five it has now. More than half of its content will be U.S. news, and the network will have its headquarters in New York, according to a rep.
A State Department security chief who was said to have resigned last week after the release of a scathing report about security lapses at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi in the run-up to the terror attack that killed four Americans reportedly is still on the department’s payroll.
The New York Post – reports that Eric Boswell, the assistant secretary of state for diplomatic security, has not resigned from the department, as a State Department spokeswoman indicated Dec. 19. Boswell is instead just “switching desks,” according to the report.
Three other State Department officials, including Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant secretary responsible for embassy security, were placed on administrative leave after the release of the report. However, according to the Post they are expected to return.
The State Department-ordered investigation of the attack found that “systemic failures” had left the consulate facility in Libya inadequately protected.
The report, which was presented to Congress by an independent review board on Dec. 18, also concluded that no protest preceded the attack, despite earlier claims made by the Obama administration.
The State Department responded to the New York Post’s questions about the employment status of Boswell and other officials by reissuing an earlier statement confirming Boswell’s decision to resign.
Al Qaeda’s expansion in Libya, following the successful terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on Sept. 11, is part of a long-term plan by Al Qaeda senior leadership, according to a seasoned counterterrorism investigator.
“Al Qaeda’s leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has long had his sights on Libya, and what he devised long ago was a plan to send senior operatives from Pakistan and elsewhere into Libya to build up Al Qaeda’s clandestine network,” Tom Joscelyn, a senior fellow with Foundation for Defense of Democracies, told Fox News.
Joscelyn, who is well known in the counterterrorism world for his “drill-down” on Al Qaeda operatives, said the vacuum left after the attack in Benghazi has created another opening which has allowed the terrorist network to “capitalize on the anti-American momentum and to show how they do have cards to play around the world.”
According to an August report by the Library of Congress in conjunction with military analysts, at least two Al Qaeda operatives — Abu Anas al Libi and Abd al Baset Azzouz — answer directly to Zawahiri.
Joscelyn said a “witches’ brew” of three basic elements now creates fertile ground in Libya for the establishment of a safe haven. They include those dispatched by Al Qaeda senior leadership in Pakistan; the Al Qaeda affiliate in North Africa known as Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb; and local militias which are sympathetic to Al Qaeda and led by former Guantanamo detainee Abu Sufian Ben Qumu.

We first hear about Susan Rice During Michael Dukakis’s 1988 bid for president, where she served as a foreign policy aide.
She later served in various capacities in the Clinton Administration from 1993 t0 2001. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright who was a long time mentor and family friend to Rice,urged President Clinton, in 1997, to appoint her as Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs. She served as the 12th Assistant Secretary of State for African Affairs from 1997 to 2001.
In 2002, she joined the Brookings Institution as senior-fellow in the Foreign Policy program. In an article in the Daly Bell, the Brookings Institution is described “…like other think tanks, the Brookings Institute’s real purpose is to justify big government for the power elite.”
In january, 2009, Susan Rice became the 27th United States Ambassador to the United Nations for the Barack Obama Administration.
As a result of recent Congressional criticism about her handling of the Administrations Benghazi Debacle, Susan Rice’s career has come under scrutiny with some very disturbing conclusions and had John McCain calling her “Unfit” for the job.
In a November 29th Wall Street Journal Article , The Trouble With Susan Rice – The would-be secretary of state’s record on Iran, Israel, human rights and more by Anne Bayefsky and Michael B. Mukasey, they point out her utter diplomatic disregard for Israel’s case against a Nuclear Iran as follows:
“Senators might also explore Ms. Rice’s broader record at the U.N. Why, for example, did she think it was appropriate to absent herself from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s September speech to the General Assembly, the purpose of which was to offer the global community a painstaking explanation of why Iran must be stopped before it can weaponize its growing stock of enriched uranium.”

30 Reasons Why Susan Rice Should Not Get Promoted
By Richard Grenell Thursday, November 29, 2012
Ambassador Susan Rice had nothing to do with Benghazi, as President Obama told us, but she appeared on five Sunday political talk shows anyway. On those shows, Rice mouthed talking points that weren’t true. We now know that the talking points did not match the intel reports, which she had complete access to. While the national media debates whether or not she knowingly mislead the public on the Sunday shows, her failings and shortcomings before the Benghazi terrorist attacks have not received the attention they deserve.
Here are 30 reasons (that have nothing to do with Benghazi) why Susan Rice should not get a promotion.
1. failed to call an emergency meeting of the Security Council after the 2010 Haiti earthquake 2. skipped the Security Council debate and vote to add new UN Peacekeepers in Haiti after the earthquake 3. led the US during the most inactive Security Council since 1991 during her first year as Ambassador 4. held her first press conference with the UN Secretary General on the pressing international issue of texting while driving 5. failed to speak out when Col. Gaddafi’s Libya was elected to the UN Human Rights Commission 6. waited 17 months before voting on the one and only UN resolution on Iran passed during her tenure 7. dismissed by Hillary Clinton from negotiating most of the Iran resolution with the French 8. lost the support of more nations on her one Iran resolution than the previous five Iran resolutions combined 9. took 103 days to move the Security Council to issue a statement after a North Korean submarine sank the South Korean ship that killed 46 sailors 10. took 18 days to lead the Security Council to action after a North Korean nuclear test (it took John Bolton 5 days in 2006) 11. failed to support the Iranian opposition during their Green Revolution 12. failed to speak out when Iran was elected to the UN Women’s Commission 13. skipped the UN Security Council’s emergency meeting on the Gaza flotilla crisis 14. snubbed Israel to the point they skipped President Obama’s 2010 UN speech 15. took more than 2 years to find someone to head America’s UN reform team 16. failed to address the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to ascertain how erroneous scientific claims were added to official UN reports 17. painfully slow in getting a UN resolution on the Sudan-South Sudan referendum 18. ignored Canada’s pleas for help in getting elected to the Security Council 19. negotiated with the UN’s Arab Group to condemn Israel’s settlements 20. failed to lead the Security Council during Tunisia’s Arab Spring protests 21. didn’t speak out on the Libya crisis until the French, British and Arab League had done so 22. failed to attend the first Security Council meeting on the Arab Spring protests 23. failed to get the support of allies India, Germany and Brazil on the UN’s Libya resolution 24. failed to lead the Security Council during Egypt’s Arab Spring protests 25. failed to lead the Security Council during Yemen’s Arab Spring protests 26. failed to lead the Security Council to confront Bashar al-Assad’s brutal violence where US resolutions received an unprecedented three vetoes on three different votes 27. agreed to send former UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to Syria where he failed miserably 28. skipped the last open meeting before the planned UN vote to recognize Palestinian statehood 29. failed to speak out when Iran was elected vice president of the Global Arms Treaty negotiations 30. delayed Security Council action and the UN report on Rwanda

Former CIA Director David Petraeus has agreed to testify about the Libya terror attack before the House and Senate intelligence committees, Fox News has learned. Petraeus had originally been scheduled to testify this Thursday on the burgeoning controversy over the deadly Sept. 11 attack. That appearance was scuttled, though, after the director abruptly resigned over an extramarital affair.
The resignation has since expanded into a sprawling scandal that now includes allegations that Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, exchanged “inappropriate” and sexually charged emails with Jill Kelley, a Florida socialite linked to the Petraeus case. The rapid developments in the case have all but obscured what until last week was an intense debate on Capitol Hill and beyond over the Benghazi terror attack. After Petraeus’ resignation, lawmakers complained that the scandal was no reason they shouldn’t hear from the man at the helm of the CIA when CIA operatives came under attack alongside State Department employees in Benghazi last month. The logistics of Petraeus’ appearance are still being worked out. But a source close to Petraeus said the former four-star general has contacted the CIA, as well as committees in both the House and Senate, to offer his testimony as the former CIA director. Fox News has learned he is expected to speak off-site to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Friday about his Libya report. The House side is still being worked out. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the Sept. 11 attack, which the administration initially blamed on a “spontaneous” mob reacting to protests over an anti-Islam film. Officials later labeled the attack terrorism. While Petraeus prepares to give his side, lawmakers have begun to openly question when Petraeus first knew about the investigation that uncovered his affair — and whether it impacted his statements to Congress on Sept. 14 about the Libya terror attack. Petraeus briefed lawmakers that day that the attack was akin to a flash mob, and some top lawmakers noted to Fox News he seemed “wedded” to the administration’s narrative that it was a demonstration spun out of control. The briefing appeared to conflict with one from the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center a day earlier in which officials said the intelligence supported an Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda-affiliated attack. Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News he now questions whether Petraeus’ statements — which were in conflict with both the FBI briefing and available raw intelligence — were in any way impacted by the knowledge the FBI was investigating his affair with Broadwell. King questioned whether the investigation “consciously or subconsciously” affected his statements to Congress. Fox News’ Catherine Herridge contributed to this report.

Exclusive: Security officials on the ground in Libya challenge CIA account
By Adam Housley Published November 03, 2012 FoxNews.com
Despite a carefully narrated version of events rolled out late this week by the CIA claiming agents jumped into action as soon as they were notified of calls for help in Benghazi, security officials on the ground say calls for help went out considerably earlier — and signs of an attack were mounting even before that. The accounts, from foreign and American security officials in and around Benghazi at the time of the attack, indicate there was in fact a significant lag between when the threat started to show itself and help started to arrive. According to the CIA, the first calls for assistance came at 9:40 p.m. local time from a senior State Department official at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, to the CIA annex about a mile away. But according to multiple people on the ground that night, the Blue Mountain Security manager, who was in charge of the local force hired to guard the consulate perimeter, made calls on both two-way radios and cell phones to colleagues in Benghazi warning of problems at least an hour earlier. Those calls allegedly went to local security contractors who say that the CIA annex was also notified much earlier than 9:40 p.m. U.S. military intelligence also told Fox News that armed militia was gathering up to three hours before the attack began. One source said the Blue Mountain Security chief seemed “distraught” and said “the situation here is very serious, we have a problem.” He also said that even without these phone and radio calls, it was clear to everyone in the security community on the ground in Benghazi much earlier than 9:40 p.m. that fighters were gathering in preparation for an attack. Many of these security contractors and intelligence sources on the ground in Benghazi met twice a week for informal meetings at the consulate with Blue Mountain and consulate staff, and at times other international officials. They were all very familiar with security at the consulate — and said the staff seemed “complacent” and “didn’t seem to follow the normal American way of securing a facility.” Both American and British sources say multiple roadblocks set up by fighters believed to be with Ansar al-Sharia were in place in Benghazi several hours before the 9:40 p.m. timeline and that communications also alluded to “heavily armed troops showing up with artillery.” Fox News was told by both American and British contacts who were in Benghazi that night that the CIA timeline rolled out this past week is only “loosely based on the truth” and “doesn’t quite add up.” Fox News was also told that the local guard force meant to protect the consulate perimeter “panicked” and didn’t know what to do as the attackers took up positions. Sources say other guards simply “walked away”. One former Special Op now employed by a private company in Benghazi said that even the safe room wasn’t properly set up. He said “the safe room is one of the first measures you take” and that he is “not sure how you can set a safe room without fire suppression and ventilation in case of fire.” He also said, “Ambassador Stevens would likely be alive today if this simple and normal procedure was put into place.” As details emerge of serious security issues before the attack on Sept. 11, Fox News is also beginning to hear more frustration from sources both on the ground in Benghazi and in the U.S. Multiple British and American sources insist there were other capabilities in the region and are mystified why none were used. Fox News was told there were not only armed drones that monitor Libyan chemical weapon sites in the area, but also F-18’s, AC-130 aircraft and even helicopters that could have been dispatched in a timely fashion. British intelligence sources said that unarmed drones routinely flew over Benghazi every night in flight patterns and that armed drones which fly over chemical sites, some a short flight from Benghazi, “were always said to be on call.” American sources confirmed this and questioned “why was a drone armed only with a camera dispatched?” Another source added, “Why would they put a ragtag team together in Tripoli as first responders? This is not even what they do for a living. We had a first responder air base in Italy almost the same distance away.” Despite the team arriving from Tripoli that night, sources said sufficient American back-up never came. British sources on the ground in Benghazi said they are extremely frustrated by the attack and are still wondering why they weren’t called for help. “We have more people on the ground here than the Americans and I just don’t know why we didn’t get the call?” one said. Both American and British sources said, at the very least, the security situation on the ground and the lack of proper response were the result of “complete incompetence.” The covert team that came in from Tripoli was held up at the Benghazi airport for more than three hours by Libyan officials. Sources said the team notified officials in Washington that they were being delayed within 30 minutes of their arrival. They also point out that these questions “don’t even address the military capabilities of our United Nations ally Turkey, who (has) forces available a similarly short flight away.” Fox News has learned that Turkey had a number of embassy staff in town the night of the attack and that the Turkish consul general met with Ambassador Stevens in Benghazi the night he and the three other Americans were killed. One source asked, “Were the Turks not warned? What forces were available from our ally Turkey? Especially since they had officials there in Benghazi also and had to be concerned … and where was the U.N. in all of this?” Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin contributed to this report
