U.S. Intelligence Community Falls on the Sword for Obama: BENGHAZI-GATE

© Miri WTPOTUS September 29, 2012

We could have guessed that this was coming. We could have easily read between the lines of the talking points and the memes floating around in pundit-land.

Now that the TRUTH is coming out anyway; now that the lamestream media has no choice but to lead from behind the blogosphere, the alternative media, and the international press; and now that they must finally report the damnable lies that this administration put out for public consumption:

Barack Obama has made the “intelligence community” fall on its sword for him. (Who can doubt that the order came down from above? Prove me wrong.)

Taking the fall. Under the bus with them. Consider the irony. Remember this?

Bush lied; people died.

That was said when President Bush claimed to be a victim of faulty intelligence, back when some in the intelligence community at times seemed more at war with the Bush administration than with those Islamists who so fervently plan for our destruction. Who can forget Valerie Plame, secret agent woman, and her husband Joe Wilson?

I suspect that the intelligence community told Obama a lot of truth; otherwise, why did the administration see fit to scrub a State Dept. advisory from their website, post-haste?

Ambassador Stevens wrote in his diary that he was on an Al Qaeda hit list and that he was concerned about the growing extremism in Libya. Who believes that he told Dear Diary but nobody higher up in the chain of command or anyone in the intelligence community?

Despite all that, how much special insight does it take to know that the eleventh anniversary of 9/11/01 might require beefed up security, especially in a place like Libya?

How much special insight does it take to suspect that those murders, on that day, were the result of an organized terrorist attack by Muslim jihadists?

Obama and Hillary Clinton did NOTHING to beef up security or to protect Stevens and the others. Bullets in the guns of their Libyan guards might have helped. A change to the lame rules of (non)engagement would have helped. MARINES would have helped.

How inept and incompetent are these people? Ask yourself: if you were in charge, would you plop these diplomats down in Benghazi and then hire LIBYANS to guard them? Libyans, who were asked by a Libyan politician with connections to Al Qaeda to stand down and let that “spontaneous attack” take place?

So now the intelligence community falls on its sword for Obama, as well as for Hillary Clinton, who has particular responsibility for our diplomatic corps (I refrain from spelling it as Obama pronounces it, out of respect for the dead). Here’s the truth:

PEOPLE DIED; OBAMA LIED.

That’s the truth. Mike Huckabee agrees: [emphasis added to quotes]

We’ve been lied to. We’ve been flat-out lied to. It’s as if airplanes crashing into the World Trade Center and someone said those were just accidents; they veered off course. Everyone with two eyes and an IQ above plant life understands that what happened in Egypt and what happened in Libya was not some spontaneous reaction to some stupid 13 minute video on YouTube. It was a planned, coordinated, orchestrated attack led by terrorists. Terrorists …

I think frankly if this issue gets the traction it deserves. Let’s go back. Richard Nixon was forced out of office because he lied. And because he covered some stuff up. I’m going to [be] blunt and tell you this. Nobody died in Watergate. We have some people who are dead because of this. And there are some questions that should be answered and Americans ought to demand to get answers.

So, on cue, the Office of the Director of National Intelligence is desperately taking the fall:

Extremists from groups linked to al Qaida struck the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a “deliberate and organized terrorist attack,” the top U.S. intelligence agency said Friday, as it took responsibility for the Obama administration’s initial claims that the deadly assault grew from a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video. The unusual statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence appeared to have two goals: updating the public on the latest findings of the investigation into the assault, and shielding the White House from a political backlash over its original accounts.

“In the immediate aftermath (of the assault), there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests earlier that day at our embassy in Cairo,” spokesman Sean Turner said in the statement. “We provided that initial assessment to executive branch officials and members of Congress, who used that information to discuss the attack publicly.”

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which coordinates and sets policies for the 16 other U.S. intelligence agencies, is led by retired Air Force Gen. James Clapper, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in August 2010.

“Updating the public?” Don’t make me laugh. To exactly which “members of Congress” did this “initial assessment” get provided? Members of Congress are on record stating that the briefing they got was virtually useless and that they learned more details from the pages of the New York Times, whose reporters got better briefings, apparently. So why exactly is Clapper’s office falling on the sword? Here’s one reason:

The foreign-policy results of the new Bloomberg National Poll haven’t gotten much attention yet, but the survey contains some bad news for the Obama campaign. According to the poll, Mitt Romney has a 48-42 advantage over Barack Obama on the question of which candidate would be tougher on terrorism. … The president had a 51-40 advantage on handling terrorism in an ABC News/Washington Post poll [early this month], and a 50-35 edge on carrying out the war on terror in an Ipsos/Reuters poll in August. … Bloomberg’s survey, which was conducted from Sept. 21-24, is one of the first polls to come out since the wave of anti-American protests in the Middle East.

Here’s another reason:

Rep. Peter King, the New York Republican who heads the House Homeland Security Committee, … thinks [U.S. Ambassador Susan] Rice should resign over the controversy.

She is America’s foreign policy spokesman to the world,” King said. “The fact is she gave out information which was either intentionally or unintentionally misleading and wrong, and there should be consequences for that.”

She should also resign because instead of acting like our employee–who answers to us and should tell us the truth–she acted like a shill, like a Democrat Party pundit, like an obot, like Rachel Maddow!

They really do think we’re stupid. Will We the People fall for this? Seriously? Where’s Harry Truman when you need him?

The buck stops here.

Well, not with this administration. If President George W. Bush cannot be blamed, then someone else will take the fall, will go willingly under that bus, for Obama.

How weak does Obama look?

How ridiculous do Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice look?

So the intelligence community is taking responsibility for not anticipating and preventing this Muslim Jihadist terrorist attack on our consulate on the anniversary of 9/11, but they also seem to take the blame for Obama’s claims that the video caused these assassinations because LIBYANS in Benghazi reacted “spontaneously” to a protest by EGYPTIANS in Cairo by executing a militarily precise assault on a (questionably) secured compound as well as a safe house that, although the Libyans weren’t supposed to know about its location, they were waiting to attack when our embassy staff fled!

U.S. intelligence has indicated that heavily armed extremists numbering 50 or more attacked the consulate, relying on gun trucks for added firepower. They established a perimeter, limiting access to the compound. A first wave of attacks forced the Americans to flee to a fallback building, where a second group of extremists attacked with mortar fire. Stevens died of apparent smoke inhalation when he was caught inside one of the consulate buildings, which had been set on fire.

There’s still a problem with their scenario. There was no protest in Egypt that was in reaction to that video. The Egyptians were protesting drone strikes by the USA as well as trying to pressure this administration into releasing the Blind Sheikh, who just happens to be an Egyptian who was the mastermind of the first attack on the World Trade Center. (It’s reported that Obama is actually considering releasing him!) We’re supposed to believe that it’s just a coincidence that the protest took place on the anniversary of the second attack on the World Trade Center. Clapper’s office also said:

We continue to support the ongoing FBI investigation …

Keep in mind that as of yesterday, the FBI had not yet arrived in Benghazi, the consulate was not secured, and it had been looted. The FBI investigates crimes; this is WAR.

Eight Republicans who head House committees sent a letter to Obama criticizing a “pre-9/11 mindset” of “treating an act of war solely as a criminal matter.” They said they would return to Washington from their nearly two-month recess for briefings beyond the back-to-back sessions Clinton and others held last week.

Sens. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., and Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., have asked for communications between the State Department and the U.S. mission in Libya leading up to the attacks.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, D-Mass., has written the State Department’s Thomas Nides asking him to provide the panel with a detailed accounting of the attacks on U.S. missions in Libya, Egypt and Yemen on Sept. 11, information on security and whether there was any prior intelligence.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., a member of the panel, said the purpose of this letter is a bipartisan effort to get information.

Although it’s likely that Kerry and Coons, as Democrats, are trying to get out in front and control the damage as well as the narrative, it’s looking pretty bad for Obama when even John Kerry sounds alarmed and wants more information. (See update below, for more about Kerry.) As Rush Limbaugh said of Obama:

The truth would make him a one-term president, so we can’t have the truth. We can’t have the truth about anything. We can’t have the truth about the failure of his economic policies. We can’t have the truth about the failure of his foreign policy. We can’t have the truth about his overall failure as a president at anything.

I’d add that we apparently can’t have the truth about who Obama is, who his parents are, where he was really born, where his real birth certificate is (in 3-D, certified by the appropriate authorities), what his real name is, why he gave up his law license, who paid for his college education, who his social security number actually belongs to, whether he truly registered for the draft and, for good measure, how both he and Huma Abedin passed a security clearance, if either of them ever did.

This statement by Clapper’s office is just digging the hole deeper. Lies upon lies upon damnable lies. They didn’t know. They hadn’t a clue until now.

Is it a coincidence that this statement came out on a Friday afternoon, in order to change the narrative for the Sunday programs? Now everyone in the lamestream can breathe a sigh of relief. They won’t have to ask tough questions about all these lies. They can focus instead on attacking those evil Republicans, who are simply trying to paint Obama as the liar that he is, for political reasons. Over the weekend, they will focus on this statement instead of on Obama’s lies.   The lamestream will dutifully dispense with the issue of the ever-morphing narrative, so that they can judge it off the table in time for the debates.

Spin, span, spun.  Case closed.

Now consider what’s being said about Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the alleged mastermind behind the video that Obama blames for everything. He was arrested today, allegedly for violating terms of his probation. How’s this for irony:

The case isn’t about Youssef’s First Amendment right to make a controversial film. Rather, [U.S. Attorney] Dugdale said, it’s about his failure to live up to his obligation to be truthful with federal authorities.

“The fact that he wasn’t using his true name with probation, that’s where the problem is,” said Dugdale, who noted federal authorities now will refer to Nakoula as Youssef.

Adam Winkler, a constitutional law professor at the University of California, Los Angeles’ School of Law, said U.S. Central District Chief Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal’s decision to order Youssef held without bail is supported by the evidence.

He has numerous different aliases and numerous government documents with different names on them and that’s exactly the kind of person that judges want to be extra careful with,” he said. “This is not an end-run around constitutional protections. Those are major red flags in any case and even if this was a low-profile case and the same facts had come out, this person would be denied bond.”

“Exactly the kind of person that judges want to be extra careful with.” Someone should tell Orly Taitz. “Those are major red flags in any case.” Not in any of Orly’s cases.

So was Youssef (or whoever he is) arrested for violating his probation or was he arrested to shut him up? (Some say that he’s really a “meth-dealer-Egyptian-Coptic-anti-Muslim-activist-fundamentalist-Christian” who inexplicably is palling around with a “Muslim-fundamentalist-Palestinian-scam-artist-terrorist.” Suspicious? You bet.)

I’ll close with this, because I don’t believe that it’s true that the intelligence community, which is doubtless full to bursting with patriots, is to blame for this fiasco in Libya. Does this sound like faulty intelligence, or an administration that refuses to hear, or one that simply does not care? Or might it be that this administration has goals other than to preserve and protect the people and the interests of the United States of America?

An intelligence source on the ground in Libya told Fox News on Friday that no threat assessment was conducted before U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team began “taking up residence” at the Benghazi compound — describing the security lapses as a “total failure.”

The source told Fox News that there was no real security equipment installed in the villas on the compound except for a few video cameras.

On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst, the intelligence source said the security lapses were a 10 — a “total failure” because Benghazi was known to be a major area for extremist activity.

There had been four attacks or attempted attacks on diplomatic and western targets leading up to the Sept. 11 strike on the U.S. Consulate.

Based on that information, a former regional security officer for diplomatic security told Fox News, the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi had to have been classified or assessed by the State Department as a “critical threat terrorism or civil unrest posting.”

Fox News was told that State Department standards for diplomatic missions overseas dictate physical security standards for this classification. There are two sets — classified and unclassified requirements. The unclassified standards include a 100-foot setback for the buildings from the exterior walls which should be three meters high, in addition to reinforced ballistic doors and windows which can withstand an hour of sustained assault.

Based on the video and photos, none appear present at the consulate.

The former regional security officer, who has worked in the Middle East, told Fox News that the standards are designed to give an ambassador, his or her team and diplomatic security that “golden hour” to burn classified dockets and call in military help for an emergency evacuation.

That consulate is still not secured. CNN walked in and took Ambassador Stevens’s diary. What did the Libyan Al Qaeda terrorists take? And why were they allowed to take it?

Update: 09/29/12:  h/t to the inimitable Papoose, who cites a story that emphasizes another horrific lie of omission:  the probability that Ambassador Stevens was raped/sodomized and his body was paraded around like a trophy before he was killed. We the People were told that Stevens died of smoke inhalation.  There are competing stories about where he was when he died and the circumstances surrounding how his body came to be recovered. We still don’t know the truth. Does his family?  Go to the link to see a photo that leaves little doubt about this rape.  Earlier photos showed his body with his belt unbuckled, which lent some credence to the report.  The Libyans surrounding him in that earlier photo, whom the administration styled as good people who wanted to help and were celebrating his survival, were actually there to kill him or seize him as a hostage, after sexually and physically torturing him.

Nor is the rape entirely allegorical.  According to the Arabic website Tayyar, “the American ambassador in Libya [Christopher Stevens] was sexually raped  before being killed by the gunmen who stormed the embassy  building in Benghazi … the photos of Ambassador Stevens—stripped of clothes, bloodied and tortured right before he was killed—very much resemble the photos of Gaddafi right before he was killed.  One U.S.-supported “freedom-fighter,” for example,  can be seen sodomizing Gadaffi with a rod as others dragged him along.

The al-Qaeda affiliated men who sexually abused and killed Gaddafi are the same men who sexually abused and killed America’s ambassador.  We were told that the late Libyan dictator was killed because he was an evil oppressor of his people.  Why was the American ambassador killed, who had hailed the revolution and was there helping to “build a better Libya”?

These are the questions the media and the Obama administration need to be answering—not obsessing over a second-rate YouTube video and questioning hard-won American freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment.  They should be explaining why it is that, after four years of appeasing the Islamic world in ways unprecedented, including by helping oust America’s longstanding allies like Egypt’s Mubarak to empower Islamists, all we have to show for it are dead and violated Americans, stormed embassies, burned U.S. flags, and greater anti-American sentiment than ever before.

I suspect there’s a reason that Stevens died and that’s something else that’s being hidden and lied about.

Update 09/29/12: Here’s another story about the lies that continue to be told and proof that this cover story put out by Clapper’s office is itself more obfuscation and misdirection.

Today, thanks to some great reporting from the Daily Beast’s Eli Lake, we’re now learning that within hours of the Libyan attack, on monitored communications, U.S. intelligence overheard al-Qaeda militants celebrating their successful attack:

In the hours following the 9/11 anniversary attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, U.S. intelligence agencies monitored communications from jihadists affiliated with the group that led the attack and members of Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), the group’s North African affiliate.

In the communications, members of Ansar al-Sharia (AAS) bragged about their successful attack against the American consulate and the U.S. ambassador, according to three U.S. intelligence officials who spoke to The Daily Beast anonymously because they were not authorized to talk to the press. [But they are patriots for doing so!]

As Charles Krauthammer pointed out last night during Brett Baier’s Fox News’ roundtable, the explanation for the White House cover up is quite simple: At their convention, Team Obama had just completed three days of spiking the bin Laden football and reassuring America that al-Qaeda had been decimated by smart power. Then it all blew up in their face. The Middle East exploded and al-Qaeda successfully executed a pre-planned assassination of our Libyan ambassador. …

Well, when you have the media completely on your side, you use them as co-conspirators. So as the media distracted from the attack by relentlessly hammering Romney over his criticism of the Cairo Embassy apology, the Obama administration fabricated a fairy tale that would avoid game-changing headlines that might read: Al-Qaeda Assassinates Libyan Ambassador; Security Questions Raised.

It’s obvious now that the Administration and media are hoping to run out the clock. That leaves it up to New Media and a few legitimate reporters in the MSM to drip-drip-drip out the truth surrounding a first class scandal —a scandal in three parts: 1) The lack of security at the consulate. 2) The lies about this being the result of a spontaneous demonstration. 3) the cover up of numbers one and two.  

But if what I’m seeing today is any indication, the media remains as guilty as the Obama Administration in what’s now known as ‘Benghazi-Gate’. Because the more proof of the White House cover up that’s discovered, the more the media disengages from the story.

There was NOTHING in my local paper about any of this today. NOTHING.

Update 09/29/12:  I knew Kerry was just fooling.  Breitbart explains the ploy:

[H]ere’s the salient point, and how the Democrats are duping the public into thinking that they truly want an investigation: Kerry and his pals’ letter to Thomas Nides, deputy Secretary of State for Management and Resources, is asking for more information and a full briefing after the Senate returns in November.

That’s right. After the election.

And when you listen to the usual suspects in the Administration, it’s clear that they are in full defense mode and plan to stonewall as long as they can. There is no bipartisan effort to get answers in time for the election. Republicans shouldn’t waste a nanosecond thinking that they will get any help from the Democrats. They need to act, and act fast.

But the Democrat ploy may not work because it was reported yesterday that Congress is coming back early to demand more information and briefings.  However, never underestimate the power of the lamestream media to aid and abet the corruption.

  1. As if none of this has happened, Hillary wants to give $45 MILLION to the SYRIAN rebels (for what? RPGs to use against our embassies?) and Obama wants to give $450 MILLION to Egypt.

    While you’re reading those, think about that 5-minute video by the accountant who says we can’t even afford the aid we give to OUR OWN PEOPLE. So Obama and Hillary want to borrow another half a billion to add to our $16 trillion deficit?

    I suggest that Obama and Hillary POOL THEIR RESOURCES AND REDISTRIBUTE THEIR PERSONAL WEALTH TO THE MIDDLE EAST AND THEIR FRIENDS IN THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD, SINCE THEY CARE SO MUCH.

  2. Great work, once again.

    Here’s a person who died from smoke inhalation. Its amazing that he still has use of one arm.

    just another act of workplace violence, perhaps.

    http://frontpagemag.com/2012/raymond-ibrahim/the-rape-of-christopher-stevens/

    that hilarious scrap of a movie trailer (another lie) commands everyone’s disgust and condemnation. this photograph doesn’t warrant a word from anyone. if this picture exists, so does a video,

    ~
    he organized that intelligence community; he built it. he stands with them.

    • TY, Papoose. Wow. I haven’t seen that photo before. I imagine that most haven’t. You know what? I’m updating the post. There’s another lie. Or lie of omission.

  3. What is the timeline of this atrocity?

    What time did the assault begin and what occurred moment to moment until our fellow Americans arrived Home in Flag-draped coffins? Who returned to us the bloodied corpses? Where? Who were the medical personnel conducting the autopsies? Who prepared the bodies for the flight home? How long was Chris Stevens in captivity?

    we know what bogus potus was doing.

    what was going on in Libya whilst he was partying and selling an abusive and deliberate parody of our Flag?

    the silence is deafening. the lies are telling.

    • http://video.foxnews.com/v/1867119840001/evolving-narrative-over-attack-in-libya

      A Brett Baier timeline. This Baier report again, imho, spotlights the sinister possibilities behind that anti-Muslim video. Baier says it was played on Egyptian TV on 9/11 (when protests were already planned to push for release of terrorists). In addition, that very night, our embassy in Cairo comes out with that curious statement apologizing for the video. Now Walid Shoebat points out the curious connections between this so-called U.S. citizen and Christian of many names, Youssef/Nakoula, to known Muslim supporters of terrorism. Then our government arrests him, just as the intelligence community is falling on its sword to cover for Obama, and he’s held without bail and (heard on Dana Loesch’s program) the court records are sealed.

      Will Youssef go into some black hole? Disappeared, as happened in tinpot dictatorships in South America and the Soviet Union? Will there be reverse “rendition” to Egypt? Oh, I have it! Deportation! A head for a video? Remember, too, how the actors in the video claimed that the words on the trailer are NOT the words they spoke, AS IF somebody took someone else’s video and deliberately modified it to make it appear as if the purpose of the film was to insult Islam. Why? Who really made the film and why? Black ops?

      That Baier video has no technical timeline for the attack itself. Here’s a partial one, http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19587068 , but it’s obvious as soon as you read it that it’s false.

      They claim Stevens was at a hospital by 1:15 a.m. local time, on the 12th, when the attack started at 10 p.m. on the 11th, so only a little more than three hours later. But since then we’ve heard a competing story–that Stevens’s body was found by jihadists 12 hours later, when the compound was deserted. We still don’t know if it’s TRUE that he EVER was at any hospital. It was said that his body was missing. That certainly conforms with what might be the truth: That he was sodomized and his body was carried around like a trophy, desecrated, and maybe it was found and recovered 12 hours later. There’s also the proven lie that the video of the men carrying his corpse shows men trying to SAVE his life, when he’s already dead. They lied about what was said on the video, which was likely edited like the Romney 47% tape. They made it sound as if their cries of joy were because he still lived. That they checked his pulse because they hoped he was alive. It may actually be true that they hoped he lived, so they could torture and perhaps behead him on video or perhaps that they could hold him as a hostage for the Blind Sheikh and others.

      The allegation that Stevens was pulled out of the rubble within only a few hours and take to the hospital was told by the LANDOWNER to the media, so he seems to be the source. But is he complicit or is he mistaken or what? http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10000872396390444426404577647060576633348.html

      • Another point about the anti-Muslim video: It’s entirely possible that the entire operation was to gin up support for that longed-for resolution in the UN against blaspheming Islam, so that Obama and company would have a leg to stand on (in their opinion) to criticize our Constitution that gives protection to ALL speech and push for the “logic” of outlawing CERTAIN speech that “causes” violence when Muslims are offended. It went sideways, though, obviously. But Barry kept THAT meme going until AFTER his UN speech, even though his narrative was already unraveling. So, after the UN speech (when he looked like such a fool, sticking to his “story” about the “cause” of the deaths of our citizens)–after the speech was done, then and only then did he allow the intelligence community to fall on the sword for him and claim that they hadn’t a clue and that they inadvertently misled Obama and Clinton about what really happened. As is obvious from the Fox News story–many of their contacts IN the intelligence community knew early on about the threat. Are we supposed to believe they told Fox but not their superiors? What’s their purpose, after all? To save lives, among other things. Are we supposed to believe that, knowing the threat to our people in Benghazi, they said nothing and let them die?

        WHAT A SMEAR ON THESE AGENTS WHO PUT THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE EVERY DAY. A smear orchestrated by their bosses who are political appointees of Obama and who owe him their jobs. If he loses, they lose. This is the reverse of what happened with OBL–for that success by the SEALS, Obama took credit. For this failure by Obama, he blames those who did their jobs correctly and foists his own guilt onto them.

      • Watching that, I’ve come across a template for any Obama comment:

        Notion … ta …folkssssss… ta … folkssssss … notion … bumpssssss in the road.

        Fill in the blanks with random words. There you have it: articulate. (Ta is to.)

        • Miri, came across that video of Obama in 1998 Chicago at Loyola University. The video is about 29 minutes, the one where he talks about believing in redistribution…..Has anyone listened to the who thing? I tried to nab it but had a problem. THe whole thing is much more than anyone realizes because of his discussion on changes in juvenile laws and the judicial system and activists and research about juvenile law….One case in particular. You do realize who was behind this law at that time was none other than Bernardine D.. She wrote pieces about these cases. SHe may have been part of serving on the papers in support of council. I read some of her articles back then…had to have been late 80’s very early nineties. So Obama seems to reiterated her talking points which seems odd for just somebody he barely knew from the neighborhood,because this was a time when he was supposedly teaching or working for a law firm. If you can find the video, I might could point out what I am talking about. I wish I could find the articles she wrote as these were for the court basically, about juveniles being prosecuted as adults. These cases back then effected legislation….that was a point and also that O. was very famililar with Bernardine’s work…

      • This man is not unconscious. If he were, he would not be capable of holding his head up. he is breathing fresh air.

        I looked up CPR and resuscitation methods for aiding a person with smoke inhalation. no where did it state that you drag a person to his feet or parade him through the streets with his trousers yanked as we see in the other photo.

        where are the videos of his rescue?

        Here’s the attending physician.

        http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/africaandindianocean/libya/libya-video/9540509/US-ambassador-killed-in-Libya-attack-Chris-Stevens-given-CPR-for-90-minutes-says-Benghazi-doctor.html

        i was shocked to see they actually do have vehicles in this hospitable town…. hmmmm. i guess they prefer show boats there.

        • Do you believe that doctor? The doctor I saw on TV was A WOMAN! He says Stevens had no injuries. We can SEE the bleeding wound on his head.

          • yeah, not a bruise on him. he was dead. yeah, we can see that.
            he was superhuman and capable of death defying stunts in his demise.

            90 minutes of futile attempts to arouse… golly. geez. hope he doesn’t feel too badly.

          • I completely agree with you Papoose, Stevens was still alive when they found him, and yes his head is being held up because his blood still ran through his vein’s from a heart that was still alive at that point. They tortured and sodomized Stevens until his heart gave out from the wounds and torture they they inflicted upon him. That first picture you posted, the large bruise on his back, do you see the organ sticking out? I believe he was even still alive at that point because his back was stiff and as your (first) picture also shows he still had use of his arm.

            Also in the picture of Stevens you have posted above, look at his leg’s, the deformity, I also think they either had broke his leg’s or his back so that Stevens could not get away, and as Miri also mentioned Stevens was bleeding from his head wound. Stevens was alive….until the point that they had murdered him through torture, and at that point death was due too torture.

            Will these people be brought too justice as Obama say’s? of course not, within day’s of this attack he was planning the release of the blind sheik and many others that have attacked and killed Americans. He gives into them, bow’s too them, why? of course we know why, but the rest of this nation better wake up real fast.

    • those were questions I had immediately too Papoose. Not only that, but it seems as though everything in the bombed out building seems to be rather empty. Why do we not see many photos from above if these buildings were bombed the way they say. Looks more like a smoke bomb from inside the rooms??? Seems there was also some important papers residing at that building, more than one set, perhaps algorithims for the new banking system for central bank of Benghazi, papers on why just a few months earlier an ambassador Luke Reynolds (I think that’s his name)was asked to leave the country for suspicious movements outside the typical embassy areas of interest and yet still some other investigatory papers. Why would Stevens be setting up a cultural center, what a joke in that part of the world.What if Steven’s mouth looks all black because someone executed him from that position (powder burns left around his mouth). I just asking.

      • Cultural center is their synonym for mosque. It sounds better to tell us (We the People of the USA) that we’re paying to build “cultural centers” than to tell us the truth, which is that we’re paying to build or rebuild mosques that will probably be used to “community organize” so that the imams can continue to wage jihad against the USA. Good question about the black around his mouth. I didn’t notice.

        John Nolte, whose particular pet peeve corresponds with mine (the corrupt media), is setting up a live blog specifically to track their mendacity. You can tip him to stories there: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2012/09/28/Media-Live-Blog-Sept-28-2012?utm_source=e_breitbart_com&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Breitbart+News+Roundup%2C+September+28%2C+2012&utm_campaign=20120928_m113577250_Breitbart+News+Roundup%2C+September+28%2C+2012&utm_term=More

          The Hammer on BENGHAZI-GATE:

          “At question is not the wisdom of the Libya operation, at question is the honesty of the Obama administration. This was clearly deception on part of the administration in sending Susan Rice to say this was a spontaneous demonstration, when as you reported, it was known inside the administration within a day that it was not. It was a terror attack. So why did they deceive? It’s obvious. Because the attack took place five days after the Democrats had spent a week in Charlotte touting, spiking the football on Osama.

          And essentially, since it’s the only foreign policy achievement of the four years they repeated it over and over again, the great triumph over al-Qaeda. Well, within a week, al-Qaeda sacks a U.S. embassy, kills an ambassador and the administration did not want to admit it so it spent a week deceiving Americans to think it’s about demonstration, its about a film, thinking, I think correctly that if it strung it out long enough the media would let it slide and now that it becomes it’s obvious and true, nobody will care, I guarantee you. This is not a headline in the mainstream media.”

          • Can’t be sure when all of this went down, but some of it was in the middle of the night, before daybreak, hardly seems like a time for spontaneous when most people are sleeping. It’s still dark when they’re carry Steven’s body around. Strange timing for spontaneous to even begin to be considered.

        • There are some really good articles at that Nolte live blog link about the media. Kirsten Powers is on this story and AGREES with us. I can’t help but remember, though, that she dated Anthony Weiner. Go figure. She’s always been so annoying, imho. I hate to have to give her kudos. I have to wonder what’s her angle? It’s disturbing that they’re not lumping HILLARY CLINTON in on much of this fiasco. Not as much as Rice and Obama. I wonder if John Kerry is pretending to be concerned because he still has the notion that folks might vote for him, should Barry, Biden, and Hill have to drop out, exit stage left, as Nixon did stage right?

          About Rice: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Susan_Rice A retread from the Clinton administration, worked for Kerry and the progressive Brookings Institute.
          h/t harvey g: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/10/world/americas/10iht-10obama.11849871.html?_r=0 We were on this one like flies on Obama’s face:

          “Obama’s experience “provides a different kind of insight” than the traditional résumé, said Susan Rice, a former assistant secretary of state for African affairs and a National Security Council official who is one of Obama’s foreign policy advisers.

          “At a time when our foreign policy and national security have so obviously suffered from a simplistic, black-and-white interpretation,” Rice added, having “an American president who spent part of his formative years and young adulthood living in a poor country under a dictatorship brings an understanding of the complexity of things that others may not have. I’m not saying that official travels and congressional delegations are without value, but there are limits to what you can glean from that.””

          • this is when you know that embaciles are running this administration from Hillary and Susan Rice and O. ….When someone in the intelligence community deduces that our President is so astute with these foreign matters since he spent his formative years living amonst he poor ect. …So I am supposed to feel safe that a 10 year old kid from Indonesia, his perspective is to be much lauded as some evidence he’s in the know. I suppose I should believe that Hillary knows what she’s doing if the most importannt thing she learned as a child was how to share pencils with everyone in the fifth grade. Gosh I feel safe. Susan Rice ,well you decide where she gets her talking points from???? Gosh hurry, get these people away from Washinton fast.

    • Doesn’t anybody recognize in this interview of the triplets here, the three “chicken littles” , that’s it’s hard to tell what their real job descriptions really are,and it’s hard for them to decide which job description they were to convey to the American people. They’re job is first to keep up the work of keeping ups afraid of terrorism coming to our neighborhoods, so we’ll up security, pass new laws giving up a bit more sovereinty ,yet when there is a real terrorist threat they’re supposed to do like Janet Nappy does and claim they don’t know anything, that she’ll have to get back to her underlings for that information, and that the community intell. hasn’t shared information with one another, conveniently. You can see their eyes blinking trying to figure out which persona were they to portait on this day. They are not entirely stupid as they appear. They are careful, scripted, and used as tools for deception so you can see the strain in this interview. , no real information came from this interview,as was meant to be for the American people.

  6. http://e-ring.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/09/28/panetta_we_ve_lost_track_of_syrian_chemical_weapons

    So yesterday Panetta admits that the intelligence community has “lost track” of some of Syria’s chemical weapons. Were those the WMDs that didn’t exist in Iraq but which GWB said were moved to Syria and that’s why we couldn’t find them back then? Syrian rebels say they control a military base and now they have these weapons. OUR GOVERNMENT is backing these “rebels” who, like in Libya, are probably associated with Al Qaeda. So how long before they turn those weapons on US?

    • The news is getting worse isn’t it? Panetta, known to associate with communists, was nominated as Secretary of Defense and our Congress approved it. Previously he was the head of the CIA. It isn’t as though Congress wasn’t warned by Trevor Louden and patriots about Panetta’s background. They chose to ignore the signs.

      This is a more than disturbing video of both Panetta’s words and his lack of information through the CIA and Obama’s reaction to the opposition getting ahold of both biological and chemical WMD’s. The opposition forces are saying they are aware of where they are stored and show a map with the information.

      Panetta: Syria moving chemical weapons
      Sept. 28

      Another disturbing development involving the worsening crisis in Syria. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta revealed U.S. intelligence shows Syria has moved some of its chemical weapons for security purposes. It’s a red line that the president has warned the country against crossing. [Weak Obama frightens the Muslim Brotherhood? He is all talk. Who is he in bed with? Look at his demeanor – does it look normal?]

        You will, too, when you “right wing bloggers” see the references to “the scar!” Ha! Wheels within wheels. They’re going apoplectic about Gilbert’s video, which he’s mailing to voters, AS IF this is some kind of surprise. It’s not as if he hasn’t been talking about it for months. The PHOTOS of Ann by FMD have been out there for over 4 years! (Actually, since the 60s.) Now they’re using the photoshopped pictures of Ann to compare to the FMD photos. Of course they don’t look very much alike. That’s BECAUSE and it’s the reason WHY they were PHOTOSHOPPED! Every early photo purportedly of SAD has been modified around the eyes, mouth, hairline, nose. Why? I’m thinking to make her NOT look so much like that nudie model. This could get very interesting as they imply (but I don’t see an outright denial by the Obama camp) that that’s not SAD in the photos. Gilbert said on one of the radio programs that he has other photos that he will release IF they claim this isn’t SAD. This article goes after D’Souza, too. Oh, and they’re smearing the Tea Party, making an “unfounded” claim that the Tea Party is behind Gilbert’s video.

        • “But Democrat consultant Steve Murphy said today: ‘It’s about the lowest thing you can do to accuse, with no evidence, the opposition candidate’s mother of being a porn star.

          ‘There are two motives behind this – racism and money. It’s a cynical attempt to make some coin and exploit the views of the fringes of mainstream views.’

          ‘Dreams From My Real Father’ claims that the President’s family history is an elaborate lie.

          The real story is that his mother’s marriage to Barack Obama Sr was a sham to cover up her affair with Mr Davis, who Mr Obama has referred to as his ‘mentor’.

          Mr Davis supposedly photographed Ms Dunham whilst she was pregnant with Mr Obama and sold the photos to 1950s magazines with titles like ‘Bizarre Life’, ‘Exotique’, and ‘Secret Pleasures’.”

          Making a comment about something being “low” isn’t the same as DENYING IT, is it? Oh, wait! There’s their usual meme: There’s “no evidence” that it’s SAD. No, other than the photos themselves and her KNOWN connection to FMD and Barry’s own admission that FMD was his “mentor” and role model and his “Pops” and who knows what else.

      • When I watched the Baier video that has clips of Barry speaking during and after the Benghazi attack, I swear that I saw that little smug smile he gets, always playing around his lips, threatening to break out and reveal to all that he wants so badly do to a mosque lady happy dance.

  7. Well done Miri!

    Where is the CIA and why aren’t they doing the investigating? What did they report and to whom? Who sent in the FBI to do the investigating? This isn’t a criminal case! Although in Holders and Obama’s world – terrorists cases are assigned to the FBI. Because they want them to look like normal murders and don’t want to use the word terrorists to describe the actions of the radical Islamic Muslims.

    Are the photos we’ve seen the real house where Steven’s was living? It doesn’t appear to have all of the security fences around it, if any. It doesn’t look much different than a house in a neighborhood in the US. The one where Osama was living among the Pakistani’s looked more like a compound than the photo shown to us in the photos.

    I still say look within at the State Department and see who knew the floor plans of the house where Stevens was and who was in charge of making the risk assessments of the place where Stevens would be living. Who said it passed their scrutiny? Has our own FBI checked out Huma’s emails? Congress may be asking for the emails between agencies about it, but if Holder, Hillary, and Naps and perhaps Panetta react in the same ways – they won’t see anything. We’ve got moles in every US agency.

    Where is Naps in all of this? Oh – and Naps doesn’t write emails or have an email account either with the agency or in private – how does the Homeland Security Secretary communicate with other agencies? Via telephone and snail mail? Does anyone find that unusual? She says there are many reasons for this behavior of hers. Is it so she can’t be held accountable? Did she work the same way when the governor or AZ?

    Then we find that our foreign policy to appease Iran is dictated by the mullahs in that country – thanks to Obama turning over US policy to those that support Iran. That should be in headlines everywhere.

    • TY. btw, I keep updating the post, so everybody check for the updates at the end of the post. I was so busy writing this yesterday that I had no clue how many others were on the same topic. If anybody finds more, link them here because everybody has a different perspective.

      Since when does the FBI investigate crimes OVERSEAS? Is that done?

      I don’t know if I linked this before, but there are aerial photos of the layout of the compound here:
      http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19587068

      It’s sketchy what they were doing there, for how long, and why. I get the impression that Stevens went to Benghazi from Tripoli relatively recently. Sean Smith’s fellow gamers probably know more about his movements than we do! I’m suspecting that there was no security because this was a non-embassy embassy. Know what I mean? On the QT. “The Secretary shall disavow any knowledge of your activities.” He may have BEEN the “intelligence community” but they’re not saying. I think our representatives need to know WHAT exactly they were doing there. For certain, what was in that compound which is now in the hands of Al Qaeda. They probably know more now about Stevens’s activities than the people who paid his salary–US!

      They have asked for all the email but I’m certain they won’t get them. Even if Romney is elected, there will be a shredding party beyond anything seen as the Clintons left the WH. Scrubbing, shredding, deleting, cauterizing, stealing and hiding under construction trailers. You name it. I loved the story that talked about Obama and company making up a “fairy tale”. Well, they have a lot of experience making up the fairy tale of his life (no double entendre intended, but duly noted).

      Won’t it be a shame if the lamestream have to eat their words about Michele Bachmann’s logical and important questions about the level of infiltration of our government by the Muslim Brotherhood and the role of Huma Weiner in the Dept. of State?

    American People.

  9. Hi guys, great blog. I’ve been reading it a few months now. Love it the most!

    I think the media is either lying or engaging in furious spin about those “protests” in the wake of the Stevens assassination. The ones which were reported to have been Pro US, anti-Islamist Libyan patriots attacking the headquarters of Ansar al-Sharia, one of the Islamist groups tied to the attack Stevens’ post.

    I knew immediately upon hearing the story of the supposed anti-Islamist protests, that the White House and it’s dirty allies in LIbya were attempting a panicked damage-control operation, but when I saw the pictures of the Libyan “patriots” demonstrating in Benghazi and Tripoli I knew these were more staged events. Not that some or even many demonstrators were not their of their own volition, but like an SEIU event where union members obviously support their stated positions, the whole thing is put together by committee and the crowd bussed in. Here’s the google image result page I got for “Libyan protesters storm ansar al sharia”:

    http://tinyurl.com/9u2nteq

    Smiling families and burkha clad women holding pro-Stevens signs in English! Some of them seem to bear the distinctive handwriting of Dickie Trumka- I wonder how long it took AFScME to rush deliver those signs to Libya? I could swear I picked out some covered-over and recycled “Justice for Trayvon” signs in their midst.

    Here’s video from The Telegraph of the Libyan “patriots” storming what is supposedly the headquarters for Ansar in Benghazi:

    http://tinyurl.com/9f8lnk5

    All the initial reports had the numbers demonstrators listed as in the thousands and I’d even seen reports that there were twelve and even thirty thousand. But as you can see from this video, it’s seems to be merely scores in most frames and in others no more than a couple hundred or so thugs out after dark, screaming that well-known democratic battle cry “Allahu Akbar” and lobbing rocks at a ransacked compound which we have no way of verifying actually is connected to any particular group. The story could be true, or it could be a rival Islamist militia taking the opportunity to push out Ansar, or it could be a completely staged agitprop to bolster the White House Libya policy and keep money flowing to the new Libyan rulers. Benghazi was a notorious stronghold of anti-Kaddafy forces since the 1990’s, so it’s unlikely that all Islamist presence would be kicked out by pissed-off citizens or even by government forces who are allied with the various Islamist groups.

    Here’s a completely schizophrenic on the scene video report from CNN’s Arwa Damon, that begins with an interview of a Libyan hotly decrying the militia presence in Benghazi, but ends with Damon and her crew pinned down in a night-time firefight between between God knows who:

    At best this is pure chaos.

    • Welcome, Sartana. Thanks for reading and lurking. 🙂 You make a good point. We’ve mostly focused on the fact that no anti-US protest took place in Libya and that the main reason for the protest in Egypt was to push us to release the Blind Sheikh. It’s likely that the pro-US demonstrations were astroturfed. They’ve been lying all along, trying to make us believe that “good Libyans” rushed Stevens to the hospital (instead of celebrating by desecrating his body) and that that video (which was already out there) actually showed these good Libyans trying to save his life and praising allah because he still lived. It IS chaos, but that’s what people like Obama want, need, and thrive on in order to promote their plan.

      I’m still trying to puzzle out why the media continues to make it appear as if Obama will win. Every day, it’s a new story about Romney struggling or Barry looking as if he’ll win. We know the polls are rigged and deliberately skewed. But why?

      Is it to make it look plausible WHEN they steal the election by vote fraud?

      Is it to make it look like the Republicans stole the election, to “justify” the many lawsuits that they are likely to file all over the country, no matter what happens?

      Is it to make it look like Romney stole the election so there are riots and unrest before his Inauguration, allowing Barry to declare martial law?

      Is it to save Barry’s “legacy” as first “African-American” (he may be neither) potus by making it at least APPEAR as if he almost won?

      Is it to fool us all into accepting the “inevitable” in order to depress turnout for Romney (at the risk of depressing turnout for Barry)?

      Is it to make us believe that Romney is lame and not fighting, when he is?

      Any other ideas?

  10. It is to make it look plausible when he wins the election. Dictators do not lose elections.

  11. Wjat’s this about?
    I watched the Ryder Cup golf contest over the weekend when I realized it was being held in somewhere near Chicago called the Medinah golf course. How odd thought I, to use one of the two important to islam cities of Saudi Arabia as the name of a golf club. So I read about the history. Established by “Shriners” from the Chicago Medinah temple in 1924.
    ??
    Who are the shriners? Seems they are like a closed society sort of maybe masonic lodge like and they feature islamic imagery on their website. They each wear a fez with the sword of islam on it. Dangling from the sword is a star and crescent. The website stresses they are all “brothers”.
    There is a drawing of some jewelery on the website that goes into more detail. Just between the sword of islam and the star and crescent there is a picture, drawn, not a photo, of someone.
    Who could that be? Don’t tell me it’s Mo (like in Mo Farrel) and nobody

  13. This is Debka’s report, More to come soon

    More Al Qaeda pre-US election attacks forecast: Americans quietly lifted out
    DEBKAfile Exclusive Report October 2, 2012, 11:00 AM (GMT+02:00)

    Ayman Zuwahiri threatens anti-US terror offensive

    Just five weeks before America’s presidential election, US intelligence reports signs that al Qaeda leader Ayman Zuwahiri is preparing a string of terrorist attacks as the sequel to the murders of US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other US officials in Benghazi on Sept. 11, according to evidence collected across Asia, Africa and the Middle East.

    His twin goals are to influence the poll’s results and to build up his reputation as a master of spectacular terrorist operations. Eager to impress Al Qaeda’s franchise chiefs, Zuwahiri is reported to be celebrating his “Benghazi feat” – his first as Al Qaeda leader – and boasting of the harm to the Obama campaign caused by his administration’s stammering denials that it was an act of terror. The new terrorist chief claims his tactics had an instant, devastating impact on Washington and they were therefore superior to those of his predecessor, Osama bin Laden.

    The Al Qaeda leader is now seen – not only by US intelligence experts, but by most experts in the West, the Middle East and Israel – to be impatient to capitalize on this success and so dramatically expose to the Muslim world America’s perceived weakness and his own worth as commander of the jihadist movement.

    His planning for a new offensive has taken advantage of the Arab Spring upheavals in the Middle East and North Africa and turned them around to strike at the heart of the Obama administration’s Middle East policy objectives. The Arab revolutions have let Islamist extremist and fundamentalist Salafi groups off the leash in Tunisia, Libya and Egypt, while Lebanon Jordan, Iraq and Syria teeter on the brink of chaos. The extremists now enjoy free rein to organize for political action while also gaining access to vast stocks of modern arms.In the view of Western counterterrorism experts, Salafi groups have long maintained clandestine relations with al Qaeda, especially Ayman Zuwahiri, who joined al Qaeda in the first place as head of the violent Egyptian Islamic Jihad and stayed in close touch with its secret cells.

    Al Qaeda planning also took advantage of the US counterterrorism focus in the last couple of years on the Arabian Peninsula franchise (AQAP) based in Yemen. Less US attention was devoted to the Islamist extremism simmering in North African and other Middle East arenas. It was there that Zuwahiri went to work to fashion new terrorist networks alongside Al Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM) from the Salafi groups now rampant across a broad geographical area encompassing Libya, Tunisia, Algeria and Mali and thrusting into the Middle East through Egyptian Sinai.

    America is therefore confronted with a broad new al Qaeda front, armed with scanty intelligence. Worst of all, Washington can’t trust the new regimes and local military and intelligence organizations, thrown into power in the post-“Arab revolt” countries, for cooperation in fighting terror.

    Instead of confrontation, the Obama administration has opted for retreat.

    debkafile’s exclusive sources report that an administration team has hurriedly put together a list of 20 endangered countries where US diplomatic, military and economic may be targeted for al Qaeda attack.The list is prioritized according to the level of risk and US security capability for protection. The highest-risk locations have been quietly evacuated – either to the US or West European countries – leaving only a skeleton staff behind for emergencies. A senior American source told DEBKAfle Tuesday that Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Nigeria and Egypt have been virtually denuded of a US presence.

    Middle East intelligence observers have told debkafile that they don’t recall US diplomatic military and intelligence personnel, businessmen and technical staff with their families being withdrawn from the region on this scale or at comparable speed.
    President Obama made American retreat his order of the day after refusing to heed calls for a US military operation against AQIM and its head, Abdelmalek Droukdel. It was Droukdel, according to accumulating intelligence who, acting on behalf of Zuwahiri, orchestrated the Libyan Ansar al-Shariah militia’s murderous attack on the US Benghazi consulate.

    The Washington Post reported Tuesday, Oct. 1, that Obama also decided against a punitive attack against al Qaeda’s stronghold in Mali.

    All Hail the retreater-in-chief

  14. “White House press secretary Jay Carney declined to comment on an assertion by the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee that requests from diplomats in Libya for added security prior to the September 11, 2012 attack on the diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, were denied.

    “I’m not going to get into a situation under review by the State Department and the FBI,” Carney said.

    Earlier today, chairman of the committee Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, the chair of the subcommittee on national security, homeland defense, and foreign operations, wrote to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, asserting that “multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 (2012) attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these requests by officials in Washington.” [Now WHY would they deny the requests? I’m thinking of reports that a Libyan politician with connections to al Qaeda asked the Libyan guards to stand down. Huma, huma, huma.]

    The two congressmen also listed thirteen incidents leading up to the attack – ranging from I.E.D. and RPG attacks to a “posting on a pro-Gaddafi Facebook page” publicizing early morning runs taken by the late Ambassador Chris Stevens and his security detail around Tripoli.

    Was State Department headquarters in Washington aware of all the above incidents?” they asked Secretary Clinton, requesting written responses by October 8. “If not, why not?

    If so, what measures did the State Department take to match the level of security provided to the U.S. Mission in Libya to the level of threat?” they asked. The two also asked for details of “any requests made by Embassy Tripoli to State Department headquarters for additional security, whether in general or in light of specific attacks” detailed in the letter.

    Carney said that “embassy security is a matter that is in the purview of the State Department,” and noted that “Secretary Clinton instituted an accountability review that is underway as we speak” while the investigation of the attack itself is being conducted by the FBI.” http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/10/white-house-has-no-comment-on-house-gopers-assertions-that-libyan-mission-requested-security-prior-to-91112-attack/

    Hmm. Does that sound like the beginnings of intimations of tire treads soon to be on Hillary’s face?

    • http://thehill.com/blogs/global-affairs/middle-east-north-africa/259677-report-libya-consulate-subject-to-previous-threats-attacks

      “The two lawmakers told Clinton they intend to convene a hearing of Issa’s House Oversight panel on Oct. 10 to review possible security failures in Libya, including “State Department security assessments and security related decision making.”

      Clinton will “cooperate fully” with the Republican probe, the State Department said. [Wanna bet? I have a life-sized picture of them turning over all the communications. While you’re at it, Hil, turn over Obama’s uncauterized passport files.]

      “The secretary intends to respond to the congressmen today,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said at her daily briefing Tuesday.

      “And her letter will make absolutely clear the desire of this department, her personal desire to cooperate closely with the committee and with all members of Congress, both in their document requests, in their requests for witnesses for their hearing, because we share the same goal: We want to get to the bottom of precisely what happened and learn any lessons that we need to learn from it. We’re taking this very, very seriously.””

      Yep. If only they had taken Ambassador Stevens’s safety and the safety of all the others as “very, very seriously.” But not to worry. They will “learn any lessons that we need to learn.” I’m sure that will be a comfort to the families.

      Today, Reps. Issa and Chaffetz sent a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton asking why requests for more protection at the Benghazi embassy were denied. Rep. Issa is the Chairman of the House Oversight Committee and Rep. Chaffetz is the Chairman of the subcommittee on National Security, Homeland Defense and Foreign Operations. The full committee will hold a hearing on October 10, 2012 to assess the security situation preceding the terrorist attack of September 11.

      “Based on information provided to the Committee by individuals with direct knowledge of events in Libya, the attack that claimed the ambassador’s life was the latest in a long line of attacks on Western diplomats and officials in Libya in the months leading up to September 11, 2012. It was clearly never, as Administration officials once insisted, the result of a popular protest,” the committee’s chairman, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., and subcommittee chairman, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, write. “In addition, multiple U.S. federal government officials have confirmed to the Committee that, prior to the September 11 attack, the U.S. mission in Libya made repeated requests for increased security in Benghazi. The mission in Libya, however, was denied these resources by officials in Washington. [WHO DENIED THE REQUESTS?]

  16. “A plurality of Americans and more than seven in 10 Republicans say pollsters are intentionally skewing results to benefit President Obama, according to a new poll released Tuesday.

    Some 42 percent of voters surveyed by Daily Kos and SEIU believe pollsters are manipulating their sample sizes to benefit the incumbent president, while 40 percent do not. An additional 18 percent said they were not sure. That’s evidence that Republican claims that Democrats and minority voters are being oversampled in national polls could be resonating — and potentially undermining the momentum of the president’s early lead.” http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/259655-poll-plurality-of-americans-believe-polls-biased-for-obama

  17. More Fast and Furious news from Univision: http://dailycaller.com/2012/10/01/univision-juarez-drug-cartel-leader-el-diego-was-captured-with-fast-and-furious-weapons/

    “When Mexican authorities took Juarez drug cartel carnage king Jose Antonio Acosta Hernandez — better known as “El Diego” — into custody, he had weapons from Operation Fast and Furious on his person, the English-language transcript of the Spanish-language television network Univision’s special investigation into the scandal shows.

    “According to investigations, ‘El Diego’ forms the link between this massacre and Fast and Furious,” an anchor read on air in Spanish Sunday evening, referring to two different mass killings drug cartel operatives used Fast and Furious weapons to conduct as Univision reported.

    “When he [El Diego] was captured in Chihuahua in the summer of 2011, he was found with weapons that the American government had allowed to enter Mexico,” the anchor added.

    El Diego was, until he was taken into custody, the leader of the Juarez drug cartel’s La Linea — or “enforcement arm.” According to the El Paso Times, El Diego told Mexican authorities after his capture that La Linea’s mission was, among other things, to “eliminate the members of the Sinaloa cartel in Ciudad Juárez.”

    Mexican authorities have alleged El Diego is responsible for the murders of at least 1,500 people in Juarez and Chihuaha City, Mexico, according to the El Paso Times.

    Tracy Schmaler, a spokeswoman for Attorney General Eric Holder, has not responded to a request for comment in response to this revelation.”

  18. Cheney Accuses Obama of Terror Attack ‘Cover-Up’
    October 03, 2012

    FORMER VICE PRESIDENT DICK CHENEY: I think the danger from [the Obama Administration’s] standpoint is that this whole episode of Benghazi demonstrates that they don’t have a handle on foreign policy and national security matters. They like to go out and say, “bin Laden is dead. Terrorism is dead, al Qaeda is dead, and, you know, we’re great in the foreign policy field,” but that’s hogwash. First of all, the people who deserve credit are the intelligence professional who worked on that issue for ten years and finally got on the trail of bin Laden. But secondly, that claim to be competent in the world of foreign affairs just goes down in flames when you look at what happened in Benghazi. The latest thing I’ve heard now is that, and they were denied – now this is all second hand, I haven’t seen the confirmations yet they had denied the additional security resources that had been requested by the Benghazi consulate or the Libyan – our embassy in Libya had asked for more help and didn’t get it.

    SEAN HANNITY: Well, that was Jake Tapper’s report that the White House had no comment today on the assertion that the Libyan mission requested security prior to 9/11 which would make sense considering that Ambassador Stevens actually put in his own diary that he felt his life was in jeopardy – that he was being targeted by terrorists. Now, I doubt that if he was really feeling that deeply about it that he didn’t communicate that via cable or an email to somebody someplace that he needed help. It doesn’t make sense.

    CHENEY: Yeah, it looks to me like its gonna get messier and messier, and in fact, it looks like the administration’s been involved in a cover up claiming that it was all caused by this YouTube video, when in fact, it was clearly the result of the developments with respect to al Qaeda and terrorism in North Africa. The battle is not over by any means. They keep wanting to say that there is no War on Terror, we don’t use the word terror. They refuse to recognize the situation we are in and that’s the first step towards ultimate failure and ultimately future terrorist attacks.
