Why Did Barack Hussein Obama Condemn 4-Americans to Die in Benghazi?

Benghazi-GateFolks, 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 now  free  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.

Benghazi Gate – Clinton To Testify! – Where Are The State Department Employees Survivors?

January 22, 2013 in Al Qaeda, Benghazi Coverup, Benghazi Gate, Foreign Policy, Hillary Clinton, Middle East Peace, Middle East War, National Security, Obama's America 2016, President Obama, Propaganda, Shariah Law

BenghaziMore 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.

Fox News’ Jennifer Griffin contributed to this report.

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.

Susan Rice Should Not Get Promoted – She Should be Canned for Malfeasance

December 1, 2012 in Abuse of Power, Benghazi Coverup, Benghazi Gate, Bill Clinton, Congress, Diplomacy, Foreign Policy, Israel, Liars, Middle East Peace, National Security, Political Deception, President Obama, Propaganda, radical islam, US Foreign Policy

Who is Susan Rice?

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

America goes into the darkness

Published in: Melanie’s blog

The greatest satisfaction today over the re-election of Obama is not being felt in the Democratic Party. It is not being felt among the media, who are no longer objective observers but have turned instead into corrupt partisans who ruthlessly censored the truth about Obama and helped peddle his demonising propaganda about his opponent. It is not being felt among the gloating, drooling decadents of the western left who now scent a great blood-letting of all who dare defy their secular inquisition. No, the greatest satisfaction is surely being felt in Iran.

With four more years of Obama in the White House, Iran can now be sure that it will be able to complete its infernal construction of a genocide bomb to use against the Jews and the west. World War Three has now come a lot closer.

It is said that, with likely gridlock in Congress over domestic issues, Obama will concentrate on foreign policy. We should all shudder. So far, Obama has empowered Iran to destabilise the region; supported Islamist takeovers in Egypt and Libya; is backing al Qaeda affiliates in Syria; refused to come to the aid of Americans being attacked by al Qaeda in Benghazi as a result of which four American officials were murdered; and hung Israel out to dry against its genocidal Palestinian attackers.

report last month that Obama was secretly negotiating with the Iranian regime took on an even more incendiary aspect a few days ago with a claim that these negotiations were being led by his close friend and adviser, Valerie Jarrett.

If Jarrett was indeed involved, that should strike a deep chill into anyone who has not joined the lemming-like leap over the edge of the western cliff. For Iranian-born Jarrett – who Obama has admitted he consults before he takes any decision and who has been said to act as his ‘spine’ — is a far-leftist with roots deep in the corrupt Chicago Democratic machine. Indeed, Jarrett has been credited with originally smoothing Obama’s entry into Chicago’s political elite, and is now said to be – despite her controversial background — the most influential person in his circle.

There have also been claims that she advised Obama against killing Osama bin Laden, which although unsubstantiated are all too credible. If this wholly ill-equipped and sinister individual really has been leading secret negotiations with Iran – raising the fear that far from preventing Iranian nuclear terrorism Obama intends to allow the regime a face saving compromise under cover of which it will finish building its nuclear weapon – then Obama’s perfidy against the west really is as bad as some of us feared from the start.

Four years ago, America put into the White House a sulky narcissist with close links to people with a history of thuggish, far-left, black power, Jew-bashing, west-hating politics. In his autobiography, Obama himself described his mentor, the communist agitator Frank Marshall Davis, as being a promoter of  black power; in 1995 Obama went on the Million Man March organised by the black power activist and radical antisemite Louis Farrakhan; for twenty years, Obama belonged to a church whose pastor, Jeremiah Wright, peddled antisemitic conspiracy theories, denounced black assimilation into white society and in June 2009 claimed that Jews were controlling Obama and were preventing Wright from talking to him.

Obama’s agenda has been crystal clear from the get-go: to increase the power of the state over the citizen at home, and to neutralise American power abroad. Four more years of this and he’ll almost certainly have succeeded.  The impact upon western security could be cataclysmic.

Britain and the Europeans love Obama because they think he will end American exceptionalism and turn the US into a pale shadow of themselves. What they don’t realise is that, all but lobotomised by consumerist rights, state dependency, victim culture, sentimentality, post-religion, post-nationalism and post-Holocaust and Empire guilt, Britain and Europe are themselves fast going down the civilisational tubes.

Romney lost because he refused to provide an alternative to any of this for fear of being labelled a warmonger, flint-heart or social reactionary. He refused to engage with any of the issues that made this Presidential election so truly momentous. Up against the bullying of the totalitarian left, he ran for cover. He played safe, and as a result only advertised his own weakness and dishonesty. Well, voters can smell inconsistency from a mile away; they call it untrustworthiness, and they are right.

Romney lost because, like Britain’s Conservative Party, the Republicans just don’t understand that America and the west are being consumed by a culture war. In their cowardice and moral confusion, they all attempt to appease the enemies within. And from without, the Islamic enemies of civilisation stand poised to occupy the void.

With the re-election of Obama, America now threatens to lead the west into a terrifying darkness.

Media Stonewalls Obama Administration’s Benghazi-Gate Scandal

As you may know, it has become increasingly difficult for individuals and groups to read or hear responsible reporting  of political events publicized through our national news channels. With few exceptions, it would also appear that with Benghazi-gate, America’s  “Free Press” has finally fully succumbed to  a political party’s “Propaganda Machine” and has now become  fully immersed as a willing co-conspirator  in  suppressing politically sensitive  misconduct.

Consequently, it has once again come own to us as individuals, who have access and knowledge of these misconducts, to spread the alarm and inform family and friends before our Capitalist Republic is transformed into a 3d world Socialist Dictatorship.

Libya Attack Misinformation – Obama Again Does Not Answer Questions! – 10-30-2012

 Mass Tea Party Good Friend and Patriot, Representative Louie Gohmert (TX-01) talked to Fox & Friends about the exclusive Fox News report that found that CIA operators were denied request for help during the Benghazi attack.

Cia In Benghazi During Consulate Attack Denied 3 Help – CIA Special Response Team Were Order To Stand Down!

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that an urgent request from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack several hours later was denied by officials in the CIA chain of command — who also told the CIA operators twice to “stand down” rather than help the ambassador’s team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.

 

Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to “stand down.”   Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.   At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.   Watch “Special Report Investigates: Death and Deceit in Benghazi” on Fox News at 1 p.m. ET on Saturday, 3 p.m. on Sunday and 10 p.m. on Sunday.   A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they too were told to stand down. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Specter gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.   According to sources on the ground during the attack, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.   Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.   “There’s a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here,” Panetta said Thursday. “But the basic principle here … is that you don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on.”   Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to U.S. officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.   Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began — a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex.   A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the U.S., finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the Consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources.   The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi’s fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces.   Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime.
