Citizens, we aren’t just dealing with the Marxist clowns in the Obama administration, we are listening and reading what the Leftist Clowns in the media are feeding to this nation and asking them to digest in accordance with the Head Clown’s agenda.
The extent of the Media clown’s support was delivered in high doses of Romney propaganda yesterday. Instead of reporting on the failed responses of the White House in light of the atrocities occurring in simultaneous attacks on our embassies in cities across the world, they wanted us to hear them expound on Romney’s perceived shortcomings. Even with the media’s blinders on, there was no mistake, Al Qaeda spoke in their words through protests, bombings, and assassinations. Through their coordinated actions directed at the symbols of the West, they inspired and rejuvenated their followers. In so doing, they sent a message straight to the U.S. Clown in Chief, Obama the Weak. Their true intent, to humiliate the United States, and insinuate that the U.S. has no military might to destroy them.
At the embassy in Egypt yesterday, the protesters were all shouting and delivering a taunting message:
“We’re all Osama’s, Obama. We’re all Osama’s, Obama.”
Against the backdrop of the rising of Al Qaeda, government “officials” are investigating whether the Libya and Egyptian rampages were a backlash to a little known video trailer, or a plot to coincide with the anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Where are all of the brilliant minds in Obama’s Clownland that they have to investigate the symbolism of the attacks? Shall we guess what these officials declare as a result of their investigation? How much of a “Duh” factor should be pointed out to them?
Meanwhile, while embassies burned and Americans were murdered, the Media Clowns were intent on disparaging Romney in an upcoming interview most likely directed by the White House. The Head Clown, who abhors being upstaged and having his failures publicized, also attacked Romney for his remarks that criticized the administration’s failures in addressing the crisis. To Obama, the crisis took a back seat to his need to admonish the truth of Romney’s statements. Romney criticized the Obama administration’s apologies to the Muslims and their failure to condemn the attacks right away. Obama attacked Romney first, and only many, many hours later was the Head Clown ready to condemn the actions of the Muslim terrorists.
“Gov. Romney seems to have a tendency to shoot first and aim later,” President Obama said in a CBS interview last night, criticizing Romney’s reaction to the embassy attack in Cairo.
Hey Head Clown, Romney isn’t the enemy, Al-Qaeda is! Now that you know, inform your sycophants!
The Embassy attacks and the killing of Americans took a back seat in the media’s list of priorities yesterday. As reported, media JournOlist or Cabal clowns are once again coordinating their talking points, and determining what is news worthy and what is not. [Newsbusters said that CBS News reporter, Jan Crawford and NPR reporter Ari Shapiro were in cahoots!]. Multiple networks were involved in this propaganda duping of the public as to what is important for us to hear and what is not. What is important is that the media intends to hide the gross negligence and bungling of this administration in the handling of these situations. They will set their sites on attacking Romney no matter what news should be in the headlines.
What did they miss? Reports from Arabic news sources say that the current leader of Al-Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, previously urged his followers to attack Americans to avenge Osama bin Laden’s death as well as demand the release of the “Blind Sheik,” and that he is the orchestrator of these combined attacks. Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman is serving a life sentence at a federal prison in North Carolina. Ironically, among other charges, he was convicted of plotting to kill Mr. Mubarak during a planned visit by the former Egyptian leader to New York in 1993.
Mohamed Morsi, the new president of Egypt, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, echoed al-Zawahir’s calls for releasing the Sheik when speaking to Egypt’s citizens on the day of his inauguration in June. [Obama and his ilk of Beltway and media clowns have presented their uneducated view that even though Morsi is associated with the Muslim Brotherhood, he and his cabinet are moderates. Obama helped to oust Hosni Mubarak, and get a leader of the Brotherhood installed in his place. One of the first places for Morsi to visit after his election was Iran. How astute are the clowns in this administration?]
According to debka.com, Al Zawahri personally ordered Al Qaeda to murder US Ambassador Stevens.
The US Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three staff members at the US consulate in Benghazi were deliberately murdered Tuesday night Sept 11. debkafile’s counter-terror sources report exclusively that far from being a spontaneous raid by angry Islamists, it was a professionally executed terrorist operation by a professional Al Qaeda team, whose 20 members acted under the orders of their leader Ayman al Zawahri in revenge for the liquidation of top al Qaeda operative Abu Yahya al-Libi last June. [He was killed by a U.S. drone.]
According to our sources, the gunmen split into two groups of 10 each and struck in two stages:
1. They first fired rockets at the consulate building on the assumption that the ambassador’s bodyguards would grab him, race him out of the building and drive him to a safe place under the protection of the US secret service;
2. The second group was able to identify the getaway vehicle and the ambassador’s armed escort and lay in wait to ambush them. The gunmen then closed in and killed the ambassador and his bodyguards at point blank range.
Further, it is reported that the 20 man team set-up the protesters to riot about some obscure film that portrayed Muslims and their prophet in a bad light. (More than likely, the documentary film is truthful, but that is another story.). The film’s protests and riots are/were a scam to provide cover as to the terrorists plans – the murders of Americans on foreign soil.
The $25 million bounty that the U.S. has on al-Zawahiri’s head hasn’t produced an inkling of where this terrorist is hiding and plotting. But the results of his masterminding of these ongoing attacks will be deadly.
Where was our media? Plotting questions to demean Romney.
Where was Obama? He didn’t attend any National Security Meetings for days leading up to these attacks. He is just so damn smart, that he doesn’t need to go for these briefings! What was on his schedule the day that our ambassadors were targeted for assassination? Obama had a campaign fund raiser scheduled in Las Vegas. That was his priority.
As we have seen before, when a crisis affects the Obama Administration, the news broadcasts are bits and pieces of information nothing concise, few facts, or synchronized lies they choose to publish. Yesterday, not only were there synchronized attacks on Libya and Egypt, we noted the resurgence of the JournOlist in asking prepared questions to “get” Romney in an upcoming interview. The focus wasn’t on the storming of embassies across the world and the messages they sent ahead of time announcing their intentions. The emphasis was on protecting and limiting the ineptitude of the White House. Again Media – Al Qaeda declared war on the United States! Again! Get your heads out of Obama’s Arabic a@@ and start doing what you are supposed to do! Report and Investigate!
It didn’t sink into their sycophantic media’s heads, that once again Al Qaeda declared war on the United States by attacking its foreign embassies overseas. Where was their concentration instead? It was on Romney’s response to the Obama administration’s delay in responding to the crisis. There is no wonder that citizens are using alternative media to get the facts! Bloggers are quick to filter out the news, especially when the information the media passes out to the uninformed makes absolutely no sense.
Yes, in 2008 we brought in clowns with the election of Obama. We don’t have just the head clown parading around like he is all knowledgeable, we have the buffoons, jokers, and media clowns all dressed up in clothing borrowed from the Emperor’s closet listening to an Empty Chair. Most left their brains, intellect, and knowledge on some communist or socialist stage. Yet, other network hiring personnel (clowns in their own right) put those people in front of a camera to feed us the administration’s daily talking points. The responsibility of the media news to present the news, question, investigate, and report. If Al Qaeda’s killing and mutilating our citizens overseas isn’t news then what will get their attention?
With an empowered Al Qaeda, expect more attacks on American concerns. The two attacks in Libya and Egypt are only the beginning. One is expected in Algeria and Yemen. There are other countries set to explode, but the fearless Head Clown will most likely be jetting off to gather cash so he can keep his position as the all powerful Head Clown. Obama has as his top priority to be reelected; anything else is ignored while he flits about on our dime to fulfill his mission.
If we expect him to show how he will react to more uprisings, we only have to look at his past. His procrastination, voting present at every opportunity, and his choice of words show us what we will get. He follows the directives of others who want to diminish or destroy the United States in the eyes of the world whenever and, however, they can. Don’t you know, the Head Clown has more important things to do than to worry about United States security or our interests abroad. He has another speech to make and a campaign to run. He doesn’t have time to deal with insignificant terrorists.
Unfortunately, none of these clowns make us laugh. The administration can’t get their stories straight and the media clowns are not the fourth estate any longer. The media has become regurgitaters. They are not like old-fashioned investigative reporters or newspapers writers who are read all over. The real fact is…they are RED.

“Mrs. Clinton Has Blood On Her Hands Everywhere”
September 15, 2012 – By Daniel Noe Western Journalism
Former CIA Operative Michael Scheuer talks to Lou Dobbs about the motives behind the recent protests in the Middle East. He is dead right, if you ask me.
Ouch! I couldn’t have said it better meself! (I mean the headline.)
OMG! Scheuer used the same analogy that I did, with regard to those arrested in Libya allegedly for killing Stevens. I mean, about how Louie in Casablanca said, “round up the USUAL suspects.” Ha!
It sure is great to hear that he thinks Obama and Clinton are making the world safe for ANARCHY. How freaking true. It’s THE PLAN.
Thinking about that so-called “consulate”. It wasn’t on the website probably because it didn’t exist until they surreptitiously sent those few guys over there to support the so-called Arab Spring anarchy and they didn’t want people to know about it. (btw, it took me a lot of searching to find that one story from the Hindu Times about the May attack there. Google and other search engines persisted in showing links to videos and current stories, even though I specified May 2012. And when I clicked links that looked like the old story, it went to a CURRENT page for the news outlet–not to the old story.)
So the very guys they enabled have now assassinated the guys who were there with NO protection, supposedly helping them to “democracy”. Huma Weiner is written all over this. WHY else is she SO CLOSE to Hillary Clinton and why does Michele Bachmann get NO answers to her questions? (Just like we get none to ours.)
Maybe there was no protection because they didn’t want anybody who could see and tell what was happening there? This is so insane.
Think about Valerie Jarrett with all that protection AS IF she’s so important to the national security of our country that We the People MUST protect her at all costs via the Secret Service. This poor “ambassador” didn’t even have 10 Marines to protect him, much less 50.
I didn’t know that Libya sent more suicide bombers to Iraq than all countries other than Saudi Arabia. And so they plopped these men there, unprotected.
They’re lying about what happened because they don’t want anybody to know what’s been going on in that consulate/mission. Just like Barry doesn’t want anyone to know what his mother did, what his stepfather did, what his father did, who his father really is, etc.
I saw the Libyan president on TV this evening. HE SAYS THE VIDEO HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THAT ATTACK. He said there were foreigners there, leading the attack. It was planned. It was a coordinated attack on 9/11. It’s pretty sad when we have to put more trust in a potential “enemy” president than in our own government.
Wow, that stating the fact’s. Thank you Michael Scheuer and Lou Dobbs. A recommended watch for everyone.
Scratch the Hillary, I started to say something…then thought better of it rather to speak my mind in anger.
Judge Jeanine Pirro’s guests on FOX tonight put the responsibility right smack dab on the U.S. State Department for the Ambassador and the other men’s deaths. They talked about the Risk Assessments that are usually done a year ahead of time, and those, if correctly done, could have have prevented the deaths. Both men were very experienced. A video might be available tomorrow.
The two men interviewed who gave their assessment of the attacks and why there was no protection were Mike Baker, former CIA covert operations officer, and Rich Brewer, who was injured in Beirut embassy blast 1984. “It went wrong a year ago.” I found a tweet from the judge, but not a You Tube yet.
“With mike baker former cia covert operations officer and rich brewer who was injured in beirut embassy blast 1984 @FoxNews”
The interview is here. It is a FOX video so can’t be downloaded. It is damning against the Department of State.

Are our embassies abroad safe? Former embassy guard injured in Beirut weighs in
US orders some diplomats out of Sudan, Tunisia
Associated Press – 14 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — The State Department on Saturday ordered the departure of all family members and non-essential U.S. government personnel from its embassies in Sudan and Tunisia and warned U.S. citizens against any travel to the two countries due to security concerns over rising anti-American violence.
“Given the security situation in Tunis and Khartoum, the State Department has ordered the departure of all family members and non-emergency personnel from both posts, and issued parallel travel warnings to American citizens,” said department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.
In Tunisia, the warning advised Americans that the international airport in Tunis is open and encouraged all U.S. citizens to depart on commercial flights.
You might wonder what Obama is doing while the Middle East is on fire besides campaigning. Tonight radio news reported, “He is taking the weekend off!”
Don’t bother him, let Hillary take that 3 am call. Da boy is so tired.
What does he do when he takes the weekend off? But will it be reported?
New York Times:
“The upheaval over an anti-Islam video has suddenly become Mr. Obama’s most serious foreign policy crisis of the election season, and a range of analysts say it presents questions about central tenets of his Middle East policy: Did he do enough during the Arab Spring to help the transition to democracy from autocracy? Has he drawn a hard enough line against Islamic extremists? Did his administration fail to address security concerns?
These questions come at an inopportune time domestically as Mr. Obama enters the fall campaign with a small lead in polls. His policies escaped serious scrutiny in the initial days after the attack that killed four Americans in Libya last week, in part because of the furor over a statement by Mitt Romney accusing the president of sympathizing with the attackers. White House officials said they recognized that if not for Mr. Romney’s statement, they would have been the ones on the defensive. …
Still, images from the past week of American flags being torn down and burned, an Islamic flag being raised and embassies being overrun by angry mobs introduce a volatile element into a re-election effort in which foreign policy has been a strength. Some critics and commentators were already evoking the images of the Iranian hostage crisis that doomed another presidency. …
“Now that gets thrown up into the air,” he said. “Instead of Obama being the successful guy that got Bin Laden, we’re talking about Obama as the second coming of Jimmy Carter, and that’s not something the campaign wants to see.””
More from that story:
“The twin challenges of dealing with the crisis overseas and the politics of it at home overlap in complicated and uncomfortable ways. Just hours after mourning in the Rose Garden last Wednesday for American victims of a Libyan attack, Mr. Obama flew off to a Las Vegas campaign event. After meeting their flag-draped coffins at Joint Base Andrews on Friday, he headed to Democratic headquarters for campaign meetings and then to an evening fund-raiser. … During marathon meetings at the White House since the killings of American diplomatic officials in Benghazi, officials have tried to anticipate the next developments and contemplate a response. But they were surprised when an American-run school was ransacked in Tunisia, which they considered a successful transition.”
Hard to believe I’m reading the NY Times. Of course, the parts I didn’t quote were the usual pro-Barry stuff.
If I hadn’t read it with my own eyes that the NY Times printed those paragraphs, I wouldn’t believe it. They are stating truth? “His policies escaped serious scrutiny…” The media hasn’t scrutinized his policies from day one.
NOTE THAT THIS IS CNN:
“Three days before the deadly assault on the United States consulate in Libya, a local security official says he met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
Jamal Mabrouk, a member of the February 17th Brigade, told CNN that he and a battalion commander had a meeting about the economy and security.
He said they told the diplomats that the security situation wasn’t good for international business.
“The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He did not say how they responded.
Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area. …
The suite where the body of the ambassador was found was protected by a large door with steel bars; the windows had steel bars. [Now this is another story. I read earlier that his body was MISSING for 12 hours until it was delivered to the airport by Libyans. Which is it?]
His body was recovered after looters broke into the room. It appears his security detail left him in the room while they tried to deal with the attack. [WHAT SECURITY DETAIL? The Libyans who RAN?] … Chief among the questions is what happened to U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, who went missing during the attack.
The State Department has not released details about how Stevens died, though numerous media reports have said the ambassador was taken from the consulate to the Benghazi medical center by locals. [Yes, and who fed them THAT narrative?] …
The February 17th Brigade — a militia connected to the government but not part of Libya’s armed forces — was closely involved in the rescue of the American staff trapped after the attack Tuesday night.
After the consulate was attacked and set on fire, a number of Americans escaped to a safe-house in another part of the city. But that came under attack too. [How many is “a number?” This is another discrepancy. It was said only a few men were in that “mission” or “consulate” or whatever it was.]
Mabrouk said he received a call from an official in Tripoli, who said he had been called by a “terrified” American in Benghazi.
The official was at the safe-house. Mabrouk says the Brigade asked the Americans if they needed help — but were told that while the situation was dangerous, it was under control. [WHO told them that and why? That’s a key point. This is probably what they’re hiding. Not only was there no protection; they were probably instructed to REFUSE help. HOW did the jihadis KNOW where the safe house was?]
A few hours later, Mabrouk said he received another call from Tripoli about the arrival of a U.S. team at Benghazi airport that needed transport into the city.
He met the seven Americans, who were heavily armed but not in military uniforn, on the runway and provided them with an armed escort, he said.
As soon as the two vehicles carrying the seven Americans arrived at the safe house, they came under intense attack — including a volley of grenades and machine-gun fire. The assailants then fled.”
The more information that comes out, the more confusing and contradictory all these reports become. WHERE was the ambassador when he was killed? WHEN did they find him in the consulate? WHERE was he for 12 hours? HOW can his body have been in multiple places at the same time? We’ve seen the photos of him being carried and dragged, dead, and photographed by what looks like the mob. His belt is unbuckled, lending credence to the possibility of rape. WHERE’S ANY evidence that he was at a hospital? WHY would some militia and not the armed forces of Libya (or OUR armed forces) “rescue” our staff? Do we NOT have helicopters? WHO were the seven who arrived at the airport later? And when was “a few hours later,” exactly. For whom did THEY work? WHY would the staff, at the safe house, decline help? Were they under orders from above? WHY WAS THERE NO U.S. MILITARY PRESENCE PROTECTING THESE DIPLOMATS, ESPECIALLY AFTER THEY WERE WARNED BY THE LIBYANS?
Complete and total lies, spin, and Clintonesque parsing by the obot Rice, not the stateswoman Rice:
“U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice said the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi was not premeditated, directly contradicting top Libyan officials who say the attack was planned in advance.
“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo,” Rice told me this morning on “This Week.”
“In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated,” Rice said, referring to protests in Egypt Tuesday over a film that depicts the Prophet Muhammad as a fraud. Protesters in Cairo breached the walls of the U.S. American Embassy, tearing apart an American flag.
“We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to – or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo,” Rice said. “And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons… And it then evolved from there.””
It doesn’t matter what the hell they “believe” that the “folks” (AKA ISLAMIC JIHADIST TERRORIST EXTREMISTS CONNECTED TO AL QAEDA) did and why they did it. What matters and what is relevant is WHAT IS THE TRUTH?
Again, pretty bad when you MUST believe the Muslim leaders INSTEAD OF OUR OWN GOVERNMENT, which is spinning as fast as they can to rescue the behinds of the incompetent Obama and Hillary Clinton. Incompetent or COMPLICIT WITH THE HUMA WEINER FACTION.
More spin and lies from the same story:
“Rice said there were no Marines present to protect the consulate in Libya, saying the U.S. presence there is “relatively new” since the revolution that overthrew former dictator Moammar Gadhafi.
“There are not Marines in every facility. That depends on the circumstances. That depends on the requirements,” Rice said. “Our presence in Tripoli, as in Benghazi, is relatively new, as you will recall. We’ve been back post-revolution only for a matter of months.”
But Rice said there was a “substantial security presence” at the consulate in Benghazi, noting that two of the four Americans killed there were providing security.
“We certainly are aware that Libya is a place where there have been increasingly some violent incidents,” Rice said. “The security personnel that the State Department thought were required were in place… It obviously didn’t prove sufficient to the – the nature of the attack and sufficient in that – in that moment.””
I read earlier that the two Marines who were killed there were NOT stationed there at the consulate. So only Sean Smith and Ambassador Stevens were at that house initially, with NO American security? Or what? It’s confusing and deliberately so. Why is she talking about Tripoli? (It reminds me of the obots talking about what the State Dept. requires for a passport. Deflection and confusion. The name of their game.)
If there were no Marines there in Benghazi, then WHO exactly were these other “two” who died and were “providing security?” Whom did they work for? If there was a substantial security presence in Benghazi, then why did the Libyans ask them if they needed help? And who refused it?
If there were two Marines stationed there in Benghazi or if there was a “substantial security presence” in Benghazi, then Sean Smith would not have laughingly (and sadly) referred to their Libyan “guard” in quotes when he was talking with his gaming friends that terrible night and joking about dying. Who was the terrified American who called for help?
This particular mission or consulate existed in May 2012, because it had been ATTACKED before by a bomb. What exactly was their mission there? I wonder who supplied the weapons that were turned against our diplomats.
So she admits that the State Dept. (which means Hillary and Huma) THOUGHT they had sufficient security there. No wonder Hillary looked like she was going to cry when the bodies came home. She was mourning her own damned political career.
btw, did ANYBODY see that cross-eyed Obama talking yesterday? What the heck is wrong with his right eye? Or both eyes? They don’t seem to track together. http://video.msnbc.msn.com/nbc-news/49044735#49044735
Jerusalem Post questions the authenticity of the so-called video. They say it was editing to say things that it did not originally say and that the editing specifically involves putting in the supposed offensive comments about Mohammed: http://www.jpost.com/International/Article.aspx?id=284877
“The sloppy editing calls into question whether the Hollywood film was, in fact, really created as an anti-Muslim screed, or simply edited to look that way.”
This information certainly make’s one want too pause, and consider the possibility –

Producer Of Anti-Islam Film Was Fed Snitch
L.A. man began cooperating with prosecutors after 2009 fraud bust
SEPTEMBER 14–In remarks stressing that the U.S. government had “absolutely nothing to do with” the anti-Islam film that has touched off violence in the Middle East, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton yesterday sought to quash Arab concerns that the “disgusting and reprehensible” movie was somehow produced or condoned by American officials.
However, Clinton’s attempt to distance the U.S. from “Innocence of Muslims”–and, by extension, its felonious producer–may be complicated by the revelation that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula became a government informant after his 2009 arrest for bank fraud, The Smoking Gun has learned.
Though many key documents from the U.S. District Court case remain sealed, a June 2010 sentencing transcript provides an account of Nakoula’s cooperation with federal investigators in Los Angeles (and how his prison sentence was reduced as a result).
Nakoula, 55, was arrested in June 2009 for his role in a check-kiting ring that stole nearly $800,000 from six financial institutions by using stolen Social Security numbers and identities. Nakoula was named in a six-count felony indictment accusing him and unnamed “co-schemers” of perpetrating the bank fraud.
Denied bail, Nakoula, a married father of three, was locked up at the Metropolitan Detention Center in L.A. when he began cooperating with Justice Department lawyers and federal agents. During a series of debriefing sessions, Nakoula provided investigators with a detailed account of the fraud operation and fingered the man who allegedly headed the operation, according to comments made by his lawyer at sentencing.
Nakoula Transcript –
Congrats to Smoking Gun for finding that information! And to you Leza for finding their information! My, my it appears that Hillary doth protest to much! Cooperating with the Justice Department and federal agents. So he gets to be the fall guy and even though he was a snitch, they get him a different way. No wonder he hid his head in the photos. Now we don’t know if that was really him or not, or if this again, is another ruse.
They wanted the eyes taken off the ineptitude of the State Department and put elsewhere so why not go after the guy who made a film. Investigate him to see if HE broke any laws..or probation. Look this way not at the bungling going on in Hillary’s State Department and in Obama’s administration where they can’t get their stories straight. Anyone asking about Huma yet and if she might be the snitch?
More Congrats to Obama and Hillary – “You did build this mess in the Middle East!” It will be a great legacy and it occurred on your watch.
Obama and the State Dept. are spending millions of taxpayer dollars renovating and rebuilding mosques in the Middle East. Our tax dollars going to RELIGIOUS buildings in other countries, as our debt mounts. And what do we get in gratitude?
“A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas. This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending. Plenty of outrage following the announcement made Thursday afternoon by a government commission that suggested huge cuts to the budget, including eliminating the interest education for home mortgage. This juxtaposed with the United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort in Muslim countries has upset many taxpayer groups.
“We are spending money we don’t have. This is all on a gigantic credit card right now,” said Jared Thomas, a taxpayer advocate.
Millions more dollars have been sent to places like Cyprus. The State Department displays before and after pictures of mosques refurbished with U.S. tax dollars.
“I think it is very hard to explain to the American taxpayer right now whose having an extraordinary time paying bills and making ends meet that this is why we took this out of your paycheck, so we can fund this,” said Thomas. [They don’t have to try because it’s not likely to be reported to most American taxpayers. They simply won’t know where all this money is going.]
The State Department declined a Channel 2 Action News request for an interview. … Egyptian-American human rights activist Nonie Darwish told Channel 2 Action News anchor Justin Farmer that trying to buy respect in the Middle East only shows our weakness.
“This part of the world has a lot of respect for power and America is not showing its power, it’s showing its appeasement. They are laughing all the way to the bank,” said Darwish.”
CONSIDER THAT THE MOSQUES ARE WHERE RADICAL ISLAMIC JIHADISTS ORGANIZE AND FROM THEM THE FATWAS GO OUT. ISN’T IT JUST DELICIOUS TAQIYYA THAT WE ARE FUNDING OUR OWN DESTRUCTION? BY DESIGN? YOU BE THE JUDGE.
The UK AGAIN!
“The US consulate in Benghazi, where the US ambassador to Libya died in an attack on Tuesday, was not given the standard security contract offered to many American diplomatic missions in the Middle East, private military contractors have told the BBC.
The consulate’s walls were breached in just 15 minutes, guards were outgunned and overwhelmed and four US personnel were killed, including the Ambassador, J Christopher Stevens.
US embassies and consulates in areas of the world where they are deemed liable to attack are usually offered a formal security contract called a Worldwide Protective Services Agreement, known in the industry as a ‘Wips’.
The contract, or so-called tasking order, is between the US state department and any one of several major private military contractors such as DynCorp International and Aegis Defence Services.
Under this agreement, extensive security precautions are put in place, including low-profile armoured vehicles, run-flat tyres, sufficient weapons, ammunition and trained personnel, as well as a tried and tested command and control system.
But sources have told the BBC that on the advice of a US diplomatic regional security officer, the mission in Benghazi was not given the full contract despite lobbying by private contractors.
Instead, the US consulate was guarded externally by a force of local Libyan militia, many of whom reportedly put down their weapons and fled once the mission came under concerted attack.”
There’s much more to that story. I won’t copy the whole thing. This part seems to indicate that there was a “sacrifice” involved in Stevens’s death, but not a willing one on his part. He WAS sacrificed for a plan, imho.
“Given the unstable security situation in Benghazi and eastern Libya that has developed this year, it is surprising that security precautions for such a sensitive diplomatic mission were not more robust.”
Busted!… State Department Scrubs Damning Memo From Website Following Deadly 9-11 Consulate Attacks
On Wednesday September 12, 2012 blogger Speak With Authority discovered that five days before 9-11, the US State Department sent out a memo announcing no credible security threats against the United States on the anniversary of 9-11.
The Overseas Security Advisory Council, who posted the memo, is part of the Bureau of Diplomatic Security under the U.S. Department of State.
Here is a screengrab of the memo at the OSAC website:
The OSAC memo said:
Terrorism and Important Dates
OSAC currently has no credible information to suggest that al-Qa’ida or any other terrorist group is plotting any kind of attack overseas to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of September 11. However, constituents often have concerns around important dates, holidays, and major events, Often times, these concerns are the result of increased media attention to the issue, rather than credible evidence of a terrorist plot.
But now it’s gone.
The State Department scrubbed the letter from its OSAC website
The damning memo is gone.
How convenient. They flushed the damning memo down the internet memory hole.
Dan Riehl has more.
We heard the reports about the chaos at the State Department. But we had no idea they were scrubbing documents.
h/t Free Republic – Breaking New’s
Damning memo and the same words I heard them use..”no credible security threats.” Seems like al Zawahiri’s message that was sent out was warning enough. Did they think he was kidding? Some expert said that Al Qaeda usually sends out a warning 1 – 2 days ahead of attacks.
It’s a way to change history and not allow certain information to get out where blogger’s great eyes can capture it for posterity! I can’t imagine that the government would scrub documents – would you? Ha! We have watched the scrubbing of articles for 4 years so we are quite used to it. Google operatives help them do it too.
Israeli Foreign Ministry: U.S. ignored Arab radicalization
Foreign Ministry official on signs of ‘radicalization’ in Arab world: ‘We knew what was happening, but the Americans preferred to find excuses.’
By Barak Ravid and Jonathan Lis
For months before the most recent attacks on U.S. embassies in North African states, Foreign Ministry and U.S. State Department officials had been arguing over developments in these countries. Senior figures in Jerusalem claimed that Washington was burying its head in the sand and ignoring the increasing radicalization in states such as Tunisia and Egypt.

They weren’t ignoring it. They promoted, sanctioned, and encouraged it.
See this story that is so right on. I’m proud of the people who spoke out against the thuggish behavior towards that “filmmaker”. It’s UNAMERICAN. http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/150781/
A celebration” with the Libyan Ambassador? Out of respect you would think Hillary would have cancelled.
Hillary Clinton Holds Belated End Of Ramadan Cel At State Department With Libyan Ambassador
Saturday, September 15, 2012
(CNSNews.com) – At an event officials say was planned before the attacks in Libya that killed four Americans on Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Libyan Ambassador to the U.S., Ali Aujali, celebrated the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan at the State Department on Thursday.
The Eid ul-Fitr reception was held almost a month after the official end of the month on Aug. 19, delayed, officials say, because of Clinton’s travel schedule.“The date [of the reception] was set purely because of scheduling considerations, especially given lengthy travel abroad recently,” a State Department spokesman told CNSNews.com via email. The spokesman provided a copy of the Secretary’s schedule, showing that Thursday’s event was scheduled about 24 hours ahead of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
“Although I am many weeks overdue in saying it: Eid Mubarak,” Clinton said. “No matter how belated we are honoring Eid and the end of Ramadan, this is a cherished tradition here at the State Department.” Clinton acknowledged the deaths, saying, “Tonight, our gathering is more somber than any of us would like. This comes during sad and difficult days for the State Department family.
Yes, she and Huma were on their world tour, but Huma doesn’t want to miss any celebration. It was likely in honor of Hillary’s other daughter, her right-hand woman Huma.
Hailing ‘blessed’ 9/11 attacks, Al-Zawahiri tells Muslims to exploit US ‘weakness’ to purify their countries
Al-Qaeda leader urges followers to ‘liberate’ every inch of Muslim land, including Palestine
September 14, 2012 Snips
Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri on Thursday released an audio recording hailing the “blessed” September 11 terror attacks as “the greatest blow” America had ever suffered. He also asserted an Islamic duty to “liberate” every inch of Muslim lands, and called upon Muslims to “purify” their countries of corrupt leaders during what he termed a period of “American weakness.” Muslims should “topple the western proxies” left in their countries “and especially the Saud clan and the gulf sheiks in the Arabian peninsula,” he declared.
Al-Zawahiri also urged Muslims to capture citizens of countries that fight Muslims in order to hold them as hostages and force the release of Muslim prisoners.
He said there was a need to establish an Islamic state that will follow a “godly path” and that will renounce secularism and democracy, which believes in brotherhood among Muslims and in the unity of Muslim lands, doing away with borders that were created by colonial powers.
I only have one word, well actually three – Obliviate the B*stards!
This has gone too far, omg! I am so pissed right now reading that.
I have just one word:
Sorry. Was thinking about sand, as in: turn it all to glass. After all, they’ve been wishing for one. Know what I mean?
Last night I watched a panel discussion on FOX (forgot the show’s name) and Monica (I think that she is the conservative one, who has as an in-law, Hannity’s old partner, Alan). Anyway, they were talking about how the media kept after Romney because he made a correct statement and criticized Obama as though he was the topic instead of getting answers about the Middle East. She is one heck of a spitfire and she was all over the media’s lack of attention and for not asking questions for days and getting answers from the WH about the attacks, the procrastination by Obama to speak (Romney beat him to it and instead of addressing the crisis, Obama attacked Romney), and the multiple stories coming out of the WH.
I couldn’t find how many hours Obama was missing in action after the attacks occurred. She answered my question. Where was Obama for 15 hours and what was he doing when everything was unfolding?” Exactly. What was he doing and where was he?
Spiking the football?
Monica is good but even the liberal Kirsten Powers was saying the same thing. Methinks perhaps Kirsten is getting a little frightened by this administration, too. btw, didn’t she date Weiner? I’m serious. Seems I remember her saying that.
The Germans weighed in and it isn’t pretty. They do see through Obama. From what I can figure out, the Salafists are the worst of the worst of Al Qaeda, if it can get worse.
German Die Welt: For SuperPower – Not Enough to Want to be Loved: US Image of Weakness Exploited by Salafists al-Qaeda
September 14, 2012 Snip
“US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins.
Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world.
After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions. … In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military.
And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”
“Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seated reservations about the free world.
In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans.
But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.”
“One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably.
For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.”
****The above quote said to be from the conservative German Die Welt comes from der Spiegel Online. I have not found the original article. I have also separated paragraphs into sentences for emphasis but each is in the original order. Read der Spiegel Online post here.
From above article.
Professor Donald Douglas at American Power Blog is also writing about the oooozing blister coming from Germans.
It’s not that Obama wants America to be loved. He wants to be beloved by Arabs. If his plan works…if he has time to implement his deepest desires, Jerusalem will not be the capital of Israel. Israel will not be a nation in the Middle East, and those who want Shariah law in the U.S. will lawfully have it. The Constitution will be amended as a living and breathing document, without a Constitutional Convention. ‘God’ will be removed from more than just the Democrat Party platform. Obama will be a handsome Hugo Chavez and all the poor people and the dhimmied Military will keep him in office.
He’s hardly handsome, what with those crossed eyes, the moles, and now the dark splotches.
The only thing they’re wrong about is that it’s a “bitter outcome” for Barry. It’s not. It’s the plan and what he wants. Chaos. Perhaps even his dream of martial law and suspended elections. btw, DHS bought more sniper bullets.
“The Marine Corps has issued a statement regarding its involvement in the recent actions in Egypt and Libya. ..
In Libya, the Corps says that no Marines are stationed at the Embassy in Tripoli or the Consulate in Benghazi. Security in Libya, such as it existed, apparently was provided by contractors. The Rules of Engagement under which they operated are unclear.
Decisions regarding whether to have Marines at particular U.S. embassies and consulates fall to the State Department, according to the Marine Corps statement.”
Further down in the story, they report what a Marine spokesperson said:
“Regarding ROE [Rules of Engagement]:
The Marine Corps does not establish ROE for MCESG detachments or other embassy security forces; that is the responsibility of the State Department and/or operational commanders depending on the command relationship. Regardless, ROE are classified and release of that information would jeopardize the Marines and U.S. interests. Any further inquiry should be directed to the State Department, since Marine security guards report to the ambassador not to a military commander.
Captain Kendra N. Motz”
Rules of Engagement probably written by Huma. Does that sound right that Marines REPORT to the ambassador and NOT a military commander?
“On Sunday, Libya President Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf told CBS’s “Face the Nation” that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was “preplanned,” contradicting directly U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice’s insistence on the Sunday morning talk shows that the attack was a spontaneous reaction to an Internet-posted video offensive to Islam. CNN also published a report Sunday indicating three days before the fatal attack, a local security official met with American diplomats in the city and warned them about deteriorating security.
What has been established is that the U.S. State Department under the direction of Hillary Clinton had provided only minimal security for Stevens trip to Beghazi, evidently assuming he was well-loved by the Libyans, given his experience with the region and his dedication to transforming the Arab Spring into genuine democracy for Libya. Stevens lacked a Marine security detail in Benghazi, in contrast to White House Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett, who appears to have a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week Secret Service detail of five or six agents, including when she vacations on Martha Vineyard, according to Democratic pollster Pat Caddell.
Fox News military analyst Col. David Hunt laid the blame for Stevens’ murder on Hillary Clinton, noting the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya prohibited Marines from providing security at any American diplomatic installation in country. Local nationals hired as security guards in Benghazi were not authorized to load their weapons with bullets.”
On Sept. 15, the London Daily Telegraph reported al-Qaida “meticulously planned” the attack in Libya to occur on the anniversary of 9/11. It was ordered by al-Qaida chief Ayman al-Zawahiri in retaliation for a U.S. drone that killed al-Qaida propaganda chief Sheik Abu Yahya al-Libi in June.
Wow. Good for Col. Hunt. That’s exactly where the blame lies.
As reported here on 9/12/2012 at WTPOTUS – Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo unless the the “Blind Sheikh” among other Islamic jihadis are immediately released. Now on 17th of September it’s being reported that the U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as ‘the Blind Sheikh’. So, that would mean that not only did this administration have advance warning of these attacks they blamed it on a video made in the U.S. and they are negotiating with terrorists. As I said earlier in this post, fantastic investigative reporting Bridgette, and by all here at WTP. Honest investigative reporting, something we can no longer get from our own media.
Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo
by Raymond Ibrahim • Sep 10, 2012 at 3:58 pm
Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad, the Sunni Group, and Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya have issued a statement threatening to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to the ground. According to El Fagr, they are calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis who are imprisonment and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay:
“The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called [especially] for the quick release of the jihadi [mujahid] sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman [the “Blind Sheikh”], whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime, and [President] Morsi is refusing to intervene on his behalf and release him, despite promising that he would. The Islamic Group has threatened to burn the U.S. Embassy in Cairo with those in it, and taking hostage those who remain [alive], unless the Blind Sheikh is immediately released.”
Link to El Fagr message calling for the immediate release of the Islamic jihadis
Breaking New’s 9/17/2012 08:45 PM EDT FR
The Blind Sheikh, Omar Abdel-Rahman, is serving a life sentence for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Since becoming the new Egyptian President, Mohammed Morsi has vowed to secure his return to Egypt, as a “nod to his base” of “hard-line Salafi Islamists,” as reported by the Wall Street Journal.
The bomb in 1993 killed six Americans and injured more than a thousand. Omar Abdel-Rahman’s terror organization masterminded the assassination of former Egyptian President Anwar Sadat, and he was reported to have a “close association” with Osama bin Laden.Would Americans want to see this man walk free? Under President Obama, it just may happen.
According to Erica Ritz from TheBlaze, “The U.S. State Department is currently in negotiations with the Egyptian government for the transfer of custody of Omar Abdel-Rahman, also known as ‘the Blind Sheikh,’ for humanitarian and health reasons,” conflicting with the statement from the Department of Justice, that insists his release is not a consideration.
Andrew C. McCarthy, the prosecutor who helped to bring Rahman and eleven others to justice, was in the news in July for speaking out in defense of Michelle Bachmann, who asked for an “investigation into the Muslim Brotherhood occupying high-level positions in the United States government and particularly about their security clearances.”
Former State Department senior official Christian Whiton appeared on Real News From TheBlaze. She said, Unfortunately, I think it is [conceivable]. And it’s unfortunate because it amounts to negotiating with terrorists... but after all, this administration was inching closer and closer to some sort of trade of terrorists with the Taliban, so perhaps it’s considering the same with [Egyptian President Morsi].
Obviously, the release of the Blind Sheikh would be a horrific development.
Not only has he been a part of a terrorist group in Egypt, he played a role in the murder of six innocent American citizens and injuring a thousand. It is simply not an option to ever release this man for any reason.
A veteran intelligence analyst and researcher for TheBlaze said he met with an official within the Obama administration who told him the transfer of the Blind Sheikh to Egypt is something that is being “actively considered” by the administration as a solution to the ongoing crisis in the Middle East. His source asked not to be identified.
When asked if the transfer of the convicted terrorist was being seriously considered, the intelligence analyst said yes, according to his source, who stressed that the move, if executed, was not intended to take place or be announced until after the presidential election.
He also said it is likely that the riots and unrest in the Middle East are related to efforts pressing for the release of Rahman, not the anti-Muslim YouTube clip that the Obama administration is adamant sparked the chaos.
“When radical Islamists in Egypt were calling for the burning down of the U.S. embassy this past weekend, before the riots took place this week, they said they were going to do this to push for the release of the Blind Sheikh,” he added.
Rahman, or the Blind Sheikh, is the former leader of the radical “Islamic Group” in Egypt, which now holds 13 seats in the Egyptian Parliament. The Obama administration recently hosted a member of the designated terrorist organization at the White House, where Hani Nour Eldin met with senior State Department and Obama administration officials. Eldin reportedly urged the National Security Council to release Rahman during his visit, the analyst explained.
Capitulation is a solution? btw, I had no idea that it was a scoop when I reported, via the Hindu newspaper, that that same consulate in Benghazi had been earlier attacked by a bomb last June and they knew it and didn’t provide enough security for Ambassador Stevens. When I looked for that story, all of the search engines would NOT turn it up. I had to search high and low until I finally found the HINDU paper’s story. That time, the group that threw the bomb was also connected to the blind sheik and calling for his release. What kind of stupid, idiotic message would it send to capitulate to these terrorists acts by giving them what they want? You appease terrorists and all you get is more terror.
All related to an innocuous film..Riiight. It doesn’t take much to put two and two together, yet it seems to be a real problem for Obama’s Administration and the State Department. They are trying to tell us that we no longer have the best intelligence in the world when there is no doubt the information was ignored or not analyzed correctly. There was no chatter picked up if this was well planned and coordinated? The leader of Al Qaeda made a statement to his followers two days before. He spoke and the US didn’t listen?
Shall we give Obama and Hillary the same kind of protection that they gave the ambassador and send them to one of the 27 countries who are in upheaval? Give them some guns with no bullets too! That seems appropriate.
The questions to answer – who knew where the safe house was and what the Ambassador’s schedule was that day? It points to whom? Begin the investigation at the State Department and start checking those computers. There is where a mole will be found. Check the analysts at the FBI or CIA and see who was getting the messages and not passing along the correct information.
You have to wonder why the Libyan guards didn’t have bullets. Is it because they knew they couldn’t trust them to not use them on the embassy staff instead of any embassy-attacking Libyans? How insane is that?
Now they’re dialing back the military training in all the Muslim countries where NATO gives it to Muslim citizens BECAUSE OVER 50 TRAINERS HAVE BEEN KILLED BY THE TRAINEES. NOW they’re doing it. Only now, noticing you can’t trust these people? But only after they murder 50. Why didn’t they stop this “trusting” after the first incident? Are they stupid or WHAT?
Yep! I was told a few weeks back that they would be invited to dinner
and when they joined…. they would be shot… HOW easy is that!
Interview regarding WH Spinning their story about the attack in Libya. Alan West said he listened to UN Ambassador Rice speak about Libya. When he was listening to Rice, “several words that come to mind are asinine, naive, inept, incompetent, and borderline ignorant”.
He said that “they [White House] are outright distorting the truth.”
Napolitano releases deceptive terrorism report, gives Muslim Brotherhood US security clearance
September 18, 2012 Snip
Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano’s latest contribution this week to the protection of Americans appears to ignore the most deadly and destructive groups on the planet — Islamic terrorists — say security and law enforcement experts.
A Department of Homeland Security report released on February 2 compares terrorism to “ordinary crime” in metropolitan U.S. cities and omits the radical Islamic factor, instead finding “significant variability in the ideologies motivating terrorist attacks across decades.”
This appears to be part of the Obama Administration’s Muslim outreach effort, which includes hiring a special Homeland Security adviser Mohamed Elibiary who supports a radical Islamist theologian and renowned jihadist ideologue.
Sensitivity….. Training’ …. ?????
“Afghan security forces, our supposed allies, are slaughtering American troops. Thirty-three soldiers have been killed by “green on blue” attacks this year alone. The situation is so bad that the training of Afghan forces has been temporarily suspended.
How has the Pentagon responded?
By blaming our troops.
Top officials believe culturally offensive behavior is the motivation behind the killings, so it’s stepped up Islamic sensitivity training for our troops.
If you don’t want to be shot in the back by your Afghan training partners, the Pentagon advises, don’t offend their religious sensibilities. Don’t kick your feet up on a table, for instance, and never ask to see a picture of their wives and kids. “There’s a percentage [of attacks] which are cultural affronts,” Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey said in a recent interview. [THIS IS THE GUY WHO CALLED REVEREND TERRY JONES TO TELL HIM TO STOP PROMOTING THAT “ANTI-ISLAM” VIDEO. SO THE US CITIZEN NEEDS “SENSITIVITY TRAINING”, TOO, IN HIS OPINION?]
No matter how sensitive American soldiers are, Afghans continue to protest the United States.
Dempsey echoes the concerns of Gen. Sher Mohammad Karimi, the Afghan National Army’s chief of staff, who earlier this month argued both sides need to do more to “teach” foreign troops Islamic traditions and values to reduce the chance of violent reactions to cultural slights.
“It is our duty to teach this to them. Our indifference about these issues causes the incident,” he said.”
So Karimi is saying they need to teach “both sides” about Islamic traditions? Yes, if our soldiers put their feet up, THEY CAUSE THEMSELVES TO BE SHOT. This is outrageous and I wouldn’t have ever believed it, but I do. Who the hell is this Martin Dempsey? Think of the INSENSITIVITY of his statements towards the families of the deceased (not to mention all Americans). BLAMING THE VICTIMS? I agree with him that a percentage of these attacks are “cultural affronts”. 100% of them are cultural affronts TO WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
You know, I remember way back in 1992 when George H. W. Bush forced our female troops to wear headscarves and all of our troops to leave behind their Bibles. And the women couldn’t drive cars, either, as they all FOUGHT to save that damned country of Kuwait from Saddam Hussein. Now decades later, we have yet another Pentagon doing the same. The Arabs needed our help to save Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. We did it and we capitulated to their stupid rules. Now, decades later, Al Qaeda attacks us BECAUSE of what we did to save Saudi Arabia. We should have let them overthrown that disgusting family of so-called “royals”.
I think the generals need some common sense training. Last time I read about it this is called war. What they really need is another Patton to go in and clean it out, and then come on home. Now we play war and apologize if family members get killed when they are closeting the guy who is shooting at them. This might stop if we didn’t try to pinpoint where our bombs are supposed to land. Apparently, they aren’t feeling the hurt enough to stop and rethink what they are doing. Picking off the enemy one at a time and how many of our soldiers are involved? While we play nice, nice, and built their schools, mosques, roads etc., and then they go back and blow them up themselves…why? Because they didn’t pay for them. I don’t want any more of our armed forces coming back in body bags. Let’s let our guys blast them and get it over with. It may sound very cruel, and it is in a way. But the mothers and sisters are just as involved in this mess. They could use their influence and get the men to stop. When families start getting hurt, then they might finally give up their crusade. The way we are playing war, they get to think they are winning when they only lose one or two at a time. Let the countries scream and yell, and then they may finally capitulate. We have had enough of this game. As I think about it, they like to blow themselves up in the name of Allah, so let’s help them in a big way. OK, who wants me to be put in charge of the military? …raise your hand!
You go, girl! We ought to have an army of U.S. women. We’ll show them how to fight. Give ’em hell, Bridgette! 🙂
Seriously, I’m with you 100% and so USED TO BE Gen. Powell. Remember the Powell Doctrine of overwhelming force? Whatever happened to that? Well, he’s the one who didn’t want to go all the way to Baghdad. You’re so right about those invisible women. Involve them and maybe things will go differently. You don’t see many insane Muslim women out there in their Guy Fawkes masks. Nope, they’re oppressed. More and more of them now, thanks to the likes of Hillary and Huma.
Middle finger held HIGH and WAVING!!!!!!! You Go GIRL!!!!
Yep! Soldiers are trained to do 2 things….. Kill & come home alive!!!
Beck has a plausible scenario for the Libyan attack. Was Chris Stevens working for the CIA, and the two men who were said to be seals also CIA? Were they in Benghazi to barter a deal for weapons? Recall that when the Libyans were fighting Gadaffi missiles were missing and the US didn’t know where they were? Did the US supply Al Qaeda with weapons? Is this another Fast and Furious gone wrong? One of the Seals put a message from his computer in the compound onto a gaming program prior to his death. It mentioned he was going on an intelligence mission to gather weapons. Security guards don’t do that according to the guards that Beck employs who worked for the State Department. The compound was a regular house with bars on the windows. Why wasn’t Chris Stevens being driven in an armored car? State Department officials are driven around in armored SUV’s and the car that was in photos was an old battered car not an SUV.
Also note that if Chris Stevens was an ambassador, and had so much experience, why was Wiki’s first mention or creation of him September 12th?
White House stonewalls another arms deal gone wrong only this time in Libya?
I posted a link yesterday that talked about how he arrived in Libya with others; seems the story said they were undercover CIA. That’s the first I read that he was embedded in the population to help with the overthrow. What he did? Who knows? That was one of the questions I listed before–questions our representatives OUGHT to be asking. The entire thing smacks of a coverup. Sean Smith was a “gamer”. He wasn’t a Navy SEAL, was he? I didn’t think that he was. So was this SEAL/gamer Beck talks about someone else? Here’s the key part, but there’s more at the link about him:
“Chris served in Jerusalem, in Damascus, in Cairo and Riyadh, and most importantly, in Tripoli, and everywhere he went he established a network of contacts. He was rarely found behind his desk wearing a suit or tie. He was always out “in the field” meeting people. … Secretary Clinton sent Chris Stevens and a group of about a dozen Foreign Service and “security” (read CIA) agents into Benghazi at the height of the fighting on a mission worthy of a James Bond movie. To the annoyance of the State Department, Wikileaks published some of Chris’ messages from this mission. The group sneaked into Libya on a Greek cargo freighter. It was Chris’ job to make contact with the rebels, and bring them together with ex-pats and U.S. friendly leaders who would take over when the government fell. The hardest part was getting them to trust one another. Someday, there might be a movie of Chris’ mission into Libya. I am dying to know if the agent sent by France to do the same job worked with Chris, or as a rival? What we do know is that Chris was successful. His reward, ironically, was the Ambassadorship that would lead to his death.”
This woman talks about the French agent here, but nowhere else in the article. It sounds like propaganda, if you want to know my opinion. She emphasizes that he died in a locked safe room of smoke inhalation but was found by good Libyans who tried to save his life. If that’s true, that he was in a locked safe room, then explain the wound on his head that bled.
I asked early on whether perhaps these men were killed by the people and the very weapons they supplied to Libyans. Would have to go back to our old posts about Libya to find the evidence, but seems to me we had reports back then that we were arming these thugs. Today, the AP says:
“Suspicion in last week’s attack that killed the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans has focused on members of a hard-core Islamist militia known for its sympathies to al-Qaida, its fierce animosity to the U.S. and its intimidation of other Muslims who don’t conform to its harsh ideology.
That doesn’t mean Libyan authorities will move against the militia, Ansar al-Shariah, any time soon. The group is among the most powerful of the many, heavily armed militias that the government relies on to keep security in Benghazi.
Ansar al-Shariah, which denies it was part of the attack, is not the biggest of Benghazi’s militias. But it is viewed as the most disciplined and feared.”
Ansar al-Shariah is the militia that “the government [of Libya} RELIES ON TO KEEP SECURITY IN BENGHAZI.” They are also the group, iirc, that the U.S. supported, surreptitiously or not, UNDER ORDERS FROM CLINTON AND OBAMA.
That’s a post from back when this Libya situation was brewing. Amazing that Susan Rice was rearing her mendacious head even then. How much I’ve forgotten already about this topic!
As if it’s not confusing enough, now a clarification comes out that seems to contradict what Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice said about the two Navy SEALS that were killed. They weren’t security for Ambassador Stevens. But since they were there, for whatever reason (they’re not really saying what they were doing), they stepped in and fought a gun battle with the terrorists. http://www.washingtonguardian.com/revising-libya-story
“The two former SEALS, Tyrone Woods, 41, and Glen Doherty, 42, were not employed by the State Department diplomatic security office and instead were what is known as personal service contractors who had other duties related to security, the officials said.
They stepped into action, however, when Stevens became separated from the small security detail normally assigned to protect him when he traveled from the more fortified embassy in Tripoli to Benghazi, the officials said.
The two ex-Seals and others engaged in a lengthy firefight with the extremists who attacked the compound, a fight that stretched from the inner area of the consulate to an outside annex and a nearby safe house — a location that the insurgents appeared to know about, the officials said.
The officials provided the information to the Washington Guardian, saying they feared the Obama administration’s scant description of the episode left a misimpression that the two ex-Navy SEALs might have been responsible for the ambassador’s personal safety or become separated from him.”
They go on to say they were security but they weren’t security. Seriously. Read it and tell me what YOU think they’re saying. I mean lying about.
“Those briefed on the latest intelligence say investigators are trying to determine when and why Stevens’ official State Department security team got separated from the ambassador when the attacks occurred the evening of Sept. 11. [Let’s guess. Paid to run and leave him behind? They were Libyans, weren’t they, even though called “official State Dept. security?” Or was that another lie?]
The separation of the team from the ambassador remains one of the more serious matters under review, the officials said.”
“In addition, while the administration has downplayed any link to al-Qaida, there is evidence some of the attackers were affiliated with another group that sympathizes with al-Qaida and has grown more influential in Libya and other parts of north Africa.
State Department officials did not respond to emails or phone calls seeking comment Wednesday.
The current evidence leads U.S. intelligence to believe that a band of Islamist extremists with some ties to the north African affiliate of al-Qaida had accumulated a stash of weapons and extra human muscle, performed some reconnaissance to identify possible U.S. targets, and may have even infiltrated the Libyan security forces that help protect the consulate in hopes of eventually conducting a terrorist operation somewhere in Benghazi.”
“U.S. intelligence believes part of the motivation for launching the attack was a video from al-Qaida leader Ayman al-Zawahiri that surfaced the night of Sept. 10, imploring Libyans to attack Americans in retribution for the U.S. drone strike that killed Libyan-born al-Qaida leader Abu Yahya al-Libi in June.
The Washington Guardian reported on Friday that U.S. intelligence had intercepted and translated Zawahiri’s message imploring Libyans to attack U.S. officials the night before the consulate attack and were still analyzing its significance when the ambassador was killed. No significant changes to security countermeasures at the diplomatic mission were taken until after the compound was overrun.”
AMAZING. NOT the video “insulting the prophet.” DRONE ATTACKS. Guess what? They FINALLY ADMIT it was a terrorist attack! When they have to. In hearings, to the Senate.
“The Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was in fact “a terrorist attack” and the U.S. government has indications that members of al Qaeda were directly involved, a top Obama administration official said Wednesday morning.
“I would say yes, they were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy,” Matt Olsen, the director of the National Counterterrorism Center, said Wednesday at a hearing of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, in response to questioning from Chairman Joe Lieberman (I-CT) about the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
As for who was responsible, Olsen said it appears there were attackers from a number of different militant groups that operate in and around Benghazi, and said there are already signs of al Qaeda involvement.
“We are looking at indications that individuals involved in the attack may have had connections to al Qaeda or al Qaeda’s affiliates; in particular, al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb,” he said.”
So which of these groups did we ARM last year? What happened to the suspicions about that other group? The “Shariah” one?
“His statements go further than those of the White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, who said last week that the protests in Cairo and Benghazi were a reaction to the [anti-Islam] video and not a pre-planned attack. Today, Carney didn’t repeat the assertion that the video was solely to blame, but he said again that there is no evidence the Benghazi attack was pre-planned.”
I hope Carney has a good and fast tailor because he must burn through an awful lot of pants.
“Committee ranking Republican Susan Collins (R-ME) declared at the hearing that she believes the attacks were planned well in advance and she referenced information she had received from U.S. intelligence officials behind closed doors.
“First, I will tell you that based on the briefings I have had, I’ve come to the opposite conclusion and agree with the president of Libya that this was a premeditated, planned attack that was associated with the date of 9/11, the anniversary of 9/11,” she said. “I just don’t think that people come to protests equipped with RPGs and other heavy weapons. And the reports of complicity — and they are many — with the Libyan guards who were assigned to guard the consulate also suggest to me that this was premeditated.”
Collins said she was concerned by the lack of security at the Benghazi consulate, especially since there had been an attack on the mission in June and a more serious attack on the British ambassador’s convoy as well. Olsen said the U.S. government was aware of the danger but not of impending attack that killed the four Americans.”
Did you catch that? Collins said there are MANY reports of COMPLICITY with the Libyan guards who were supposed to protect the ambassador. Did they instead deliberately leave him to the mob or did they lead the mob to him?
“Intelligence sources tell Fox News they are convinced the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was directly tied to Al Qaeda — with a former Guantanamo detainee involved.”
They go on to say it’s someone released to Libya in 2007 on the condition the person be kept locked up; he was released in 2008. So, right off–my radar is buzzing.
They’re going to pin it on some guy GWB’s administration handed over? (Remember Barry’s talking about releasing the murderous blind sheik who planned the first World Trade Center attack.) I think it’s far more likely that those involved in killing Stevens were people Barry ran arms to, via Stevens’s early activities, and those arms and people turned on them and attacked our consulate. Susan Collins’s statements about the MANY reports of Libyan security COMPLICITY are telling.
They WILL come up with something to deflect from the truth. This is a coverup of SOMETHING. Dennis Kucinich, can you please investigate, now that you’re a private citizen again and might have some time on your hands?
What better story than to blame GWB? The number of days it’s taking for them to formulate this narrative, and the fact that somebody’s feeding it to FOX NEWS, is suspicious.
To make an analogy between GWB releasing thugs (to Libya WHEN a firm hand (albeit a thuggish one) was in control, and Barry releasing 3000 thugs the day before the attack and then contemplating releasing the blind sheik, that’s just a twofer to make what Barry does seem par for the course. Bush did it, too! Waaaaaa.
It’s like how they get the report on the results of the investigation into Fast and Furious to also mention and criticize the non-analogous program under GWB that he shut down as soon as it went sideways. No comparison, but whatever works for Barry.
Despite these stories by FOX News and CNN, the paper today persists in saying that it was a reaction to that video that led to Stevens’s death. WHY? This is so ridiculous.
“The White House will roll out some of its top officials Thursday to brief members of the House and Senate about the past week’s violent developments across the Middle East and Afghanistan.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, intelligence chief James Clapper and members of the Joint Chiefs of Staff will be on hand for the briefing.” http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/20/world/anti-islam-protests/index.html?hpt=hp_t3 They must have the lies and the narrative all ready, every discrepancy and detail accounted for. It’s BUSH’S fault!
Ok. So here’s a CNN story that links to a story about the bomb attack that happened last June, against the same consulate. http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/12/world/africa/libya-attack-jihadists/index.html?iref=allsearch Guess what? The link doesn’t work. The story, supposedly from June, doesn’t exist in the WayBack Machine. What a coincidence! So nobody can go back and see if, back in June, they actually TRULY mentioned this guy who was allegedly let loose from Guantanamo by Bush. Try as I might, I can’t find any stories about that bombing from June.
http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/video/2012/jun/06/us-consulate-libya-bombed-video The UK has a video, though.
OR, was this ex-detainee known to Stevens? http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/wikileaks/8472816/WikiLeaks-Guantanamo-detainee-is-now-Libyan-rebel-leader.html
“WikiLeaks: Guantanamo detainee is now Libyan rebel leader
A man who spent six years in Guantanamo is now a senior figure in the Libyan rebels’ fight against Colonel Gadaffi.
By Holly Watt
7:00AM BST 26 Apr 2011
In a newly disclosed file by WikiLeaks that was written in 2005, Abu Sufian Ibrahim Ahmed Hamuda Bin Qumu was identified as a “probable member of Al Qaida and a member of the African Extremist Network”.
The revelation will raise concerns about the range of factions fighting Gadaffi in Libya, some of whom have been associated with Al Qaeda.
Qumu was previously a member of the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, but allegedly left the proscribed group in 1998 to join the Taliban.”
Why exactly did Ambassador Stevens die?
The Fox story, above, says, “He was released by the Qaddafi regime as part of its reconciliation effort with Islamists in 2008.”
Wikipedia (until “fixed”) says Abu Sufian bin Qumu was released “from Abu Salim prison in 2010 following an amnesty for political prisoners.” The link to the source of that information doesn’t work and there’s a robots txt on the webpage, earthtimes, so it’s not in the WayBack Machine. I think it makes a difference whether or not this thug was released to wage war against us again in 2008 under Bush or in 2010, when Barry was planning to overthrow the Libyan government. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abu_Sufian_bin_Qumu
http://www.npr.org/2011/04/25/135694391/guantanamo-document-abu-sufian-bin-qumu all about that dude.
Well, these guys are sure ahead of me:
http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2012/09/20/catch-and-release-abu-sufian-ibrahim-ahmed-hamuda-bin-qumu/ Good work!
One wonders if Barry might have met this guy when he visited Pakistan. Just sayin’.
“While the Obama administration finally begins to cop to the fact that the Libyan assault on our Benghazi consulate and the murder of our ambassador was in fact a terrorist attack, new details arise showing that they knew all along that such an attack could in fact take place. Not only that – despite that knowledge, they left our ambassador virtually unguarded. In Libya. When will Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her emissaries be held accountable?
The newest reports are even more shocking than older ones. According to Anderson Cooper 360 this evening, American ambassador to Libya J. Christopher Stevens “said he was on #alQaeda hit list #Libya, according to source.” If that’s true, clearly the State Department had advance warning not only that the Libyan consulate was in danger, but that Stevens himself was personally targeted. Nonetheless, security surrounding the Ambassador was apparently contracted out to an unarmed British group.
When will Congress launch a full-scale investigation into this travesty?”
Tonight on FOX, Obama was still using the meme about the film – but someone in the administration is starting a new one that it might have been terrorists who attacked Libyan house. They also said the two seals were not there to guard Stevens. They were with another group altogether. So who was guarding Stevens? The two seals were somewhere else and hurried over to help when they heard shots fired. That is when they were killed.
How many days of lies so far? Today is the 20th and this occurred on September 11th – NINE FULL DAYS of lies by the Obama administration. When will their stories be the full truth?
The latest I saw was (and they lied about this one day and admitted it the next) that they hired a British company that in turn hired local Libyans as security guards. The reason they hired the Brits is because they were the only group that bid on the job that would agree to the “rules of engagement” (which are actually NON-engagement) by ensuring that the “guards” had guns with NO BULLETS. Either none there at all or they were forbidden to load the guns. Maybe that’s why Sean Smith put “guard” in quotes–how can somebody guard him with an empty gun? Somewhere FOX had a summary of all the changing stories. I’ll try to find it. I had it up today but had to get offline for a while and lost it. Here it is: http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/20/evolution-administration-statements-on-libya-attack/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+foxnews%2Fpolitics+%28Internal+-+Politics+-+Text%29&utm_content=My+Yahoo
That was a summary of the stories about the attack itself, not the guard issue. Okay. Here’s the one that explains about the guards: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/09/18/After-Friday-Denial-State-Department-Admits-It-Hired-British-Firm-to-Provide-Security-At-Benghazi
So much going on at once. I can’t keep up!
Will they look in Clinton’s backyard for information?
Clinton forms panel to investigate Benghazi attack
By Susan Cornwell and Mark Hosenball | Reuters – 1 hr 18 mins ago Snips
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Thursday she was forming a panel to investigate the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other U.S. officials. The panel, whose creation is generally required by law when someone is killed or seriously injured at a U.S. mission abroad, will be chaired by Thomas Pickering, a retired diplomat who served as U.S. ambassador to Russia, India, Israel, Nigeria, El Salvador, Jordan and at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations.
Such panels, made up of four people chosen by the secretary of state and one by the U.S. intelligence community, are charged with writing a report on whether security systems and procedures were adequate, and they might recommend improvements.
Lawmakers have demanded answers on how Stevens, a State Department information management officer and two security agents could have died in the incident, and whether sufficient security was in place. Stevens’ death marked the first time a U.S. ambassador had been killed in such an attack since 1979.
The panel’s inquiry is separate from an FBI probe of the Benghazi attack.
U.S. authorities are investigating possible collusion between the militants who launched the attack and locally hired Libyan personnel guarding the facility, three U.S. officials said on condition of anonymity. [Try looking for Moles in US State Department!] So far, there is no proof the attackers were helped by Libyan security personnel hired by the consulate. One official said the Obama administration was playing down that possibility.
But all the officials said the question of whether the attackers had inside help was a serious issue in the U.S. investigation into the attack, which occurred on the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States. [INSIDE the State Department – try there!]
Obama, Head Clown, and Hillary are starring in an ad airing in Pakistan costing $70,000 to the taxpayers. What are they saying? The same old story that Hillary condemns the video that she says started the attacks that has been going on for a full nine days. This period should be labeled ” The X Days of Lies”. Obama joins in with the same meme. So who are they kidding now? They tried it in the US and the story has fallen apart piece by piece – so they now think that the Pakistani’s are going to believe them?
They don’t mention one word that the US believes in free speech and the filmmaker is allowed under our laws to produce amateur films like he did. Nooo, that isn’t said because this teaching moment isn’t in their ideology. They thought they needed to APOLOGIZE once again for our way of life. Surprisingly, Obama didn’t break into song so he could show his little talent that mimics a few notes of a song. If he did, they could all fall to the floor and bow to him. That is what he thinks they will do if he just mesmerizes the masses. Their idealistic foreign policy has failed and it was intentional. They have done a crappy job according to normal standards, and this video is more proof of it. If they wanted the US to be brought to her knees, then they have been successful.
WHITE HOUSE INSIDER: ” Barack Obama – The Butcher of Benghazi.”
That’s the latest from WH Insider. I thought the same thing, about the possibility that Ambassador Stevens might be yet another conveniently deceased person.
Anti-American Protests erupted in multiple countries again today. Egypt, Israel, Iraq, Indonesia, and Pakistan. Lots of U.S. flag burning. Pakistan our ally once, gave the people a holiday to “peacefully” protest. I think it was called, Prophet Mohamed Day! So how is that $70 Million ad campaign going for ya O and Hill? Pakistan pretty much told you they weren’t believing it any more that we in the US are. They are seen burning cars.. not exactly peaceful unless they are like the Obama administration and one must assign the opposite definition to whatever they say. Give them the day off to protest…what were they really expecting? How much cash have they been given to be aligned with the US in the War against Terror? Pakistan is a major concern because they do have nukes. They are already known to side with terrorists since the Bin Laden kill where he was living right under their noses.
Obama is going to address the UN next week and will talk about the darn film. Hillary talked about the film being the spark again today also, but she also called it a terrorist event for the first time.
Like with Fast and Furious, they are trying to CREATE a rationale for “implementing” that censorship of the Web and violation of our right to free speech under the guise of preventing violence.
FOX News reported that 100 militants attacked the Libya compound (a house) in two waves. Two militant groups joined together to attack, one was Al Qaeda. It was stated again that they had “inside information”. The two radical groups are teaming up to destabilize Libya’s government. Seems to me, they are already destabilized.
Believe it or not, the citizens of Benghazi turned on the militants today in a pro-American protest. That is the city where our ambassador was killed. Signs saying “sorry, America” were seen. They torn down flags of the militants that were flying in their city. About time for normal people to take back their own countries.
Are there photos? Are they as photoshopped as the rallies we saw for Obama in 2008? Was it astroturfed? Was it designed to make Barry and Hillary look like they weren’t wrong to take the side of the Libyans? The thing is, these are NOT the people that Barry and Hillary supported. The people they supported were the ISLAMISTS who belonged to the “rebel groups” who are the very ones who turned on the men inside our consulate, who HAD BEEN helping them overthrow their government.
On another station yesterday, they said there were 10’s of thousands..and this report says hundreds took over the headquarters of the radical group. There is a video. That CNN reporter is a woman who is in the most unsafe place in Libya. She doesn’t sound frightened with all that is going on around her.
Decrying attack, protesters overtake Islamist group’s HQ in Benghazi
updated 1:31 AM EDT, Sat September 22, 2012 Snips
Benghazi, Libya (CNN) — Ten days after four Americans were killed in their Libyan city, hundreds marched in Benghazi and took over the headquarters of a radical Islamist group tied to the attack.
Thousands of protesters had taken to the street earlier Friday, loudly declaring that they — and not those behind last week’s deadly attack — represent the real sentiments of the Libyan people.
“I am sorry, America,” one man said. “This is the real Libya.”
Mohamed al-Magariaf, president of Libya’s General National Congress, thanked the protesters for helping evict “armed groups.
Former VP Cheney urges U.S. to fight back after protests in Islamic world
Sep. 21, 2012
Instead of pulling out of Afghanistan, the United States needs to flex its military muscles throughout the Islamic world to combat attacks on America, former Vice President Dick Cheney told nearly 2,000 movers, shakers, students and policy makers Thursday at Perspectives 2012.
“I want them to know if they’re going to kill a U.S. ambassador, they’re going to hear from us,” said Cheney at the Sacramento Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce’s annual speakers forum.He noted that there have been anti-U.S. uprisings in 27 nations following the YouTube release of a crude video mocking the Prophet Muhammad.
In Pakistan, where a nationwide anti-U.S. protest is planned today, the people “don’t respect us either – that’s the most important thing,” Cheney said. Since the United States has reduced its military presence in the region, he said, “they’ve just seen the U.S. pull out, we’re bailing … our friends in the region no longer trust us.”
Exactly! Glad he’s speaking out.
Thousands Of Muslims In Malaysia March On U.S. Embassy, Burn American Flags…
From our favorite “moderate” Muslim country.
KUALA LUMPUR: About 3,000 Muslims marched on the US embassy in Malaysia on Friday, burning an American flag, over a US-made film that has sparked anger in the Islamic world. Although there was no violence, angry demonstrators declared their willingness to sacrifice their lives to defend the honour of Prophet Mohammed and warned “there will be consequences” over the film.
“We will not allow the prophet to be insulted. We are willing to sacrifice our lives and property,” said Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, an official with the opposition Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS), which spearheaded the march.
About 60 percent of Malaysia’s 28 million people are Malay-Muslims.
Protesters shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is greatest) and held up signs denouncing the film, America and Jews.
One placard read: “Obama, our patience has its limit. Don’t blame us if your citizens die. Blame yourself. U started it!”
Demonstrators handed a memo to an American embassy official, demanding a US apology, “maximum sentences” for the movie-makers and an investigation into whether there was a “planned agenda to provoke hatred and anger towards Muslims”
They’re willing to sacrifice their lives and properties? I say, let’s give them their wish.
Watch for the Clown show…coming up this next week! Obama to DENOUNCE the film that he and Hillary have advertised more than the radicals. Was it it determined as fact that the naturalized citizen from a Middle Eastern country was indeed a Christian, or is that something they are making up? So much for teaching about free speech that is lawful in the U.S. and is one of the many privileges of living in the U.S.
Obama to Condemn Christian Filmmaker Before United Nations
Saturday, September 22, 2012 Snip
Not only are we seeing the White House and State Department call more attention to the Mohammed-mocking “Innocence of Muslims” than any terrorist network ever could’ve hoped for, but the President’s indefensible scapegoating of the film and filmmaker to draw attention and blame away from U.S. security failures apparently knows no bounds.
Next week, Obama will denounce the film in a speech before the United Nations General Assembly:
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president’s speech to the UN General Assembly next week:
“UNGA always provides an opportunity for the President to put the international situation in context, and to put forward a vision of US leadership. I would certainly expect the President to address the recent unrest in the Muslim world, and the broader context of the democratic transitions in the Arab World.” “As he has in recent days, the President will make it clear that we reject the views in this video, while also underscoring that violence is never acceptable.
My God, between the media and the Obama White House, we are finally witnessing Orwell’s “1984” blossom to life.
He’s not going to meet with Morsi after all, and Morsi says it’s because of the realities of the election. He understands. How big of him. But he thinks we need to change our ways. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/23/world/middleeast/egyptian-leader-mohamed-morsi-spells-out-terms-for-us-arab-ties.html That kind of goes along with the WND story reporting that CAIR blames the USA for all this unrest.
“As WND has reported, CAIR co-founder Ahmad reportedly told a group of Muslims in Northern California in 1998 that they are in America not to assimilate, but to help assert Islam’s rule over the country.
“Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant,” a local reporter paraphrased him as saying. “The Quran, the Muslim book of scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Ahmad insists he was misquoted. However, the reporter stands by her story, as WND reported, and an FBI wiretap transcript quotes Ahmad agreeing with terrorist suspects gathered at the secret Philadelphia meeting to “camouflage” their true intentions.
He compared it to the head fake in basketball.
“This is like one who plays basketball: He makes a player believe that he is doing this, while he does something else,” Ahmad said. “I agree with you. Like they say, politics is a completion of war.””
NO DOUBT ABOUT THE AIM OF CAIR. Is that Obama flag part of this war?
Citizen Wells will enjoy his reference to 1984. CW’s been reporting on the parallels for years. Literally years. CW–a patriot. h/t to him.
“As our economy slows, incomes shrink, unemployment creeps up, and poverty explodes — the media assures us we’re in “recovery” and that our frustrations should be taken out on “Emmanuel Goldstein,” also known as “America’s Successful.”
As Obama’s appalling policy of disengaging in the Middle East comes to fruition in the form of the region exploding and al-Qaeda’s targeted assassination of an American ambassador — the media spends two weeks savaging Mitt Romney and directing our sorrow, rage, and helplessness on “Emmanuel Goldstein,” also known as “A Stupid Filmmaker.”
For weeks this administration, aided and abetted by The State Media, has shamelessly lied to us about what happened in Libya. Moreover, in order to cover up and distract for unforgivable security lapses, this hapless filmmaker has been targeted for all of the blame — certainly more blame than the Administration’s failure to secure a consulate on 9/11 (of all days), but even more blame than the actual murderers.
And now, even though we know the truth about what really happened in Libya, it won’t stop. It will never stop. Because Obama knows his media will never make him pay a political price for lying and scapegoating.
At all costs, the media quietly whispers amongst themselves, Obama must be reelected.
The most troubling and Orwellian element in of all this is that the Administration’s lies are now becoming truths. As we saw in Pakistan and elsewhere yesterday, Obama’s scapegoating and calling unnecessary attention to this film appears to be turning into a self-fulfilling prophecy. How many millions of Muslims are hearing about the film that might not have if Obama didn’t need his Emmanuel Goldstein? Now that our government has ensured every Islamist radical on the planet knows about this film, how much easier is it for extremists to use it to foment chaos?”
“And so, next week, as Obama condemns this film, and therefore the American ideal of freedom of speech, before the entire world — all in an effort to quadruple-down on a brazen lie that’s already been exposed as such — it will truly be the ultimate Big Brother moment of this presidency.”
Obama Donor Connected to Freed Plotter of Benghazi Attack
22 Sep 2012
There have been reports that a radical left-wing organization is responsible for helping to free a former detainee at Guantanamo Bay named Abu Sufian bin Qumu. Bin Qumu has been cited by multiple sources at Fox News as at least being involved with, and possibly playing the lead role in the attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Those attacks resulted in the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American diplomats.
Michelle Malkin has revealed that the Center for Constitutional Rights represented Qumu and helped lead the charge in freeing him back in 2007.
Longtime readers know that I’ve extensively covered the troublesome conflict of interest at the Department of Justice involving Attorney General Eric Holder and his former law firm, Covington and Burling, which has represented a score of Gitmo detainees.... Many readers have asked whether the firm represented Abu Sufian bin Qumu, the former Gitmo detainee released in 2007 — and now named as the possible lead plotter in the bloody attacks on our consulate personnel, staff, and private security contractors in Benghazi.
The left-wing organization that helped spring Qumu was the Center for Constitutional Rights. Last April, the group issued an indignant press release painting Qumu as a harmless victim and blasting those concerned about his unrepentant jihadi ways. After a trove of Gitmo documents found their way to Wikileaks and were published by the New York Times, CCR rose to Qumu’s defense and parroted jihadi propaganda that the aggrieved Qumu was actually a friend of the U.S.
President Emeritus of the CCR, Michael Ratner, has long advocated for closing Guantanamo Bay’s doors, and for the rights of Gitmo detainees within.[Obama Donor]
