30,000+ Libyans March Against Al-Qaeda … Overnight Open Thread

Thanks to OllieGarkey at Daily Kos — your eyes do not deceive you — for posting this story, linked via Memeorandum. We can hope it is true because it is heartening news. Of course, there’s a caveat: The left and the media need to make Libya look less of a disaster than President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice and Press Secretary Jay Carney already have.

The reports come from the BBC, Reuters, and foreign news organizations. So I am more convinced that the BBC report is true.

Breaking: Libyans Storm Headquarters
of Islamist Militia that
Killed Ambassador Stephens

According to the BBC, a huge demonstration against Islamic militants in Benghazi ended when ordinary citizens stormed the headquarters of Ansar al-Sharia, the Islamist militia responsible for an attack on the US Embassy. 30,000 protesters marched today against the Islamist group, with the march culminating in a spontaneous attack on the Militia Headquarters. A number of buildings and vehicles have been torched.

The BBC Also Reports that Libyan Security forces joined in with the protesters, attacking a number of militant facilities and forcing the Militia to flee.

The story is still breaking, and there aren’t a lot of details yet.

Here’s the poster for today’s “Save Libya” protest: …

Well, he did not link to the BBC News story. Not good. However, he did link to RT News‘s “Libyan pro-government activists attack militia headquarters (VIDEO, PHOTOS)”:

CAPTION: “A demonstrator stands next to a burning car which the demonstrators set alight and said was full of ammunition as they stormed the HQ of the Islamist Ansar al-Sharia militia group in Benghazi September 21, 2012 (Reuters)”

Footnote: It crossed my mind that Obama can manipulate news coverage, however these reports come from several sources and are NOT being shown on Fox News (or at least that I have heard).

I remembered that Obama got the Secret Service (!) to erase all news stories — domestically and abroad — of his daughter’s opulent vacation to Mexico with 12 friends, 2 U.S. jets, and 24 Secret Service agents, further manipulation of the press is possible. (But then he had a plausible excuse: The safety of his daughter and her friends in kidnap-crazy Mexico [hence 24 S.S. agents]. And, although she’s a First Daughter, the girl is entitled to an exciting trip with friends because that’s what teens do, even tens of thousands of upper-middle class American teens, hopefully with chaperones.)

When I was a junior in high school, I won a trip to the United Nations with a group of 15 other teens. We rode in a bus across the entire border of Canada, down through upper New York State, making our way through Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and the United Nations.

In those days, life was so different. The Secretary of State was Dean Rusk, and I walked in, all by myself, to his office and peeked in. Not a single person stopped me or asked me what I was doing. We also toured the United Nations with some low-level U.S. employee of the U.S. delegation, and we sat in General Assembly while the U.S. employee took our questions.

Now fast-forward to Spring 2012. I am the teenage daughter of the President of the United States. I doubt she’d be in the grueling competition to go, although she is surely bright and knowledgeable, which was all it took. And I bet she speaks well too, given that both of her parents do.

But the security nightmare of covering a month-long trip, stopping at mom-and-pop motels and restaurants along the way — both ways — then going with a large group of teens to Philadelphia and New York City, would be unimaginable. And the cost of bringing along Secret Service agents and special protective vehicles would be enormous.

So, no. In the unlikely event that that fictional First Daughter ever got to go on such a trip, she couldn’t travel 3,000+ miles through Canada and then another 3,000+ miles back across the U.S., also staying in major cities like New York and Philadelphia, and visiting a target like the United Nations building, I doubt she’d be able to make the trip.

Her safety and that of her fellow travelers would be in constant jeopardy. Every single restaurant and motel would have to be checked out in advance as well as every single monument (the Liberty Bell in Philly) and the Vanderbilt mansion (in New York state, I believe) — my mother threw out all of the souvenirs long ago — would each have meant new challenges for the Secret Service.

It’s sad, really. Sometimes it is really better to grow up as an anonymous teen in a small town who happens to love politics and was a international news “nerd” long before that nickname was ever thought up.

– Just some thoughts on a Saturday night –

By the way, it is great that Mitt Romney’s children are grown but, if he is President, the Secret Service will have a very large headache on their hands: Five sons and wives, and all those grandchildren. Plus the Romneys’ homes. Then there are Paul Ryan’s wife and three small children, far easier. But each and every one of them will be at risk of kidnapping or worse.

Let’s hope that the Secret Service budget doesn’t get cut. In fact, that budget needs more money badly; the number of Republican primary candidates, who demanded Secret Service protection even when they didn’t get it, was a real hardship on the Secret Service. There’s Joe Biden charging the Secret Service $2,500 per month to rent a cottage on his property. Then how about Newt Gingrich, anyone? And, as I mentioned recently, the Secret Service has other jobs to do, including fraud and counterfeiting.

    “When it comes to our national security decisions — any pressure that I feel is simply to do what’s right for the American people. And I am going to block out — any noise that’s out there,” Obama says.

    http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/obama-refers-israel-concern-over-iran-noise_652967.html

    “Noise.”

    That is how Obama refers to Israel’s concern over Iran’s push for nuclear weapons. This is how this guy supposedly has Israel’s back.

    I guess if World War III breaks out Obama will come up with a way to just blame Bush.

  • CathyInKs

    I’ve noticed a “strange silence” from my liberal friends regarding the deaths of Stevens and the others in Libya and the anti-American mobs across the world. Occasionally one or two make reference to Romney’s 47% or post a wall poster saying “they’re too informed to vote republican” but absolutely no links to any news articles which would support why they’re voting for Obama. I wonder what it means? I’m thinking the diehards libs are really upset about what’s happening in the ME and elsewhere – they may still vote for Obama anyway but at this point they’re desperate to not draw any attention to their leader’s massive failures.

      Comment by Blackbird:
      Gibbs: “Chris, they have telephones in the White House. Last week, he talked to the President of Egypt. He talked to the leader in Libya. We don’t need a meeting in Washington just to confer with leaders.”Seriously, he just admitted Obama is trying to phone in the entire worst diplomatic crisis since WW2. Obama clearly understands the advantages of face to face meetings with his fundraisers and talk show hosts and how that seems to produce better results, but he can’t seem to make the same connection with being President of the United States. Perhaps he should start phoning in the fundraisers on teleconference and actually meeting with the world leaders and his security advisers instead, eh? I guess everyone has to have their priorities.

    if media biased is not defined by the fact that in 2 weeks where an American ambassador is killed (first time since 1979), American embassies under siege, cessation of training in Afghanistan, downgrade of use debt to AA- and continuing economic disaster the media still finds time to dump on Romney more than on the Pres, I don’t know what does.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      And how many people even know about Stevens, Ethiopia, the security debacle … I scarcely knew ANYTHING this week because I was either seeing doctors, waiting for doctors, giving up on transport help because it’s understaffed and putting my purse + bag in wheelchair and rolling it myself to parking area. Then I went to get my computer cleaned (because it’s been three years) + complained about the third $80 power cord I’d bought (and got a new one free, whew)* + when I got home, the man who cleaned my laptop changed the username and password, and didn’t tell me — I waited for a return call for 2-1/2 hours on how to get into my computer and got NO return call. Besides, in the meantime, I found my user’s manual and read how to do it myself .. it’s just that I hadn’t read it in a couple years and didn’t recall the precise steps (install CD, press C [who'd remember that after two years?], find the Utilities drop-down menu in a NOT OBVIOUS spot…. i digress.

      Do you think that those people who vote immediatley upon getting a mailed ballot have already made up their minds and aren’t going to change. I know that I vote right away when I get my ballott. I just don’t want to let it get lost or have coffee spilled on it.
      I’m also set now to work counting ballots here in my country–starting Oct. 22.

      • jrterrier

        i just fear that mail balloting has a huge potential for fraud. particularly with elderly or infirm people. anyone can fill out their ballot and mail it in.

        • DianaLC

          When I worked the midterm election counting ballots, I was able to see how they confirm signatures for mail in ballots. So basically they have three people verifying that the signature on the ballot matches several signatures already in the system for drivers’ licenses, signing papers to get mail in ballots, etc. They check the signature against all signatures in the system, sometimes as many as five. It’s quite a process.
          The only way fraud could occur is that the person didn’t check the ballot to be sure it was filled in the way he or she wanted.
          As I have mentioned before, our clerk says it’s the old people who get questioned the most, as their signatures get really shaky as they get older. They also catch parents the most, those who vote for their children who are away from home–in college usually–and then sign for them. Their signatures don’t match their child’s, so they get sent to the state AG’s office to have their hands slapped and be told what will happen if they do it again. Of course, the child’s ballot is forfeited in that case.
          I was impressed with the system our county clerk has in place. Everything is double checked, almost triple checked. She’s like an old-fashioned librarian–people get booted for even beginning to talk about the election itself. No electioneering going on while those ballots are being put through.

    The issue I have with the extravagant vacations is especially by meeshelle is that it’s on our dime. The obamas are well worth over 10 million dollars. Why don’t they f*ucking pay their own way. yes I know we owe them.

    • BronwynsHarbor

      It is probably required by law. Guessing. But Congress’s laws re protection of First Families are quite extensive, as I recall … if Nancy Reagan still needs a Secret Service agent?

      But t would have been nicer for the girls to visit a national park in the U.S. — I bet Obama’s girls have NEVER been camping. Barack and Michelle sure don’t look like the types. And one large camping spot would be so much easier for Secret Service to protect and, if the girls flew to Montana, Idaho, Washington state (as LAURA BUSH did WHILE SHE WAS FIRST LADY), they can too

      Besides, Laura Bush stayed in a fairly modest hotel, ate at a local restaurant, and went hiking with her four childhood friends!

      She likes those yearly getaways — what woman doesn’t, Heh.

      She also toured the stunningly beautiful lake and the lodge where Teddy Roosevelt stayed when he was president and came west — on a train — to ensure that we’d have a national park. He also hunted elk, now called Roosevelt elk. OF course, very few are left … people complain that the elk eat their shrubbery. Well damn it, plant shrubs the elk don’t like!

  • HARP2

    I`m starting to wonder if Obama secretly wants to lose this election.

    In Wisconsin he was spotted with a huge wad of cash (strange).

    He recently told univision that you can only change Washington from the outside.

    Then there is the story of the house in Hawaii.

    We know he dosen`t like the job of actually being President……just the perks and prestige that goes with it.

  • HObama HObamanana

    This just doesn’t make sense to me. If the Libyans knew where the Islamist militia that murdered ambassador Stevens was then why didn’t the FBI? Or did the FBI organize this demonstration to bolster the manufactured version of events of the Obama/Clinton cabal? Are we also supposed to believe that the Libyan Security forces also spontaneously joined in? If the Libyans knew where these people were then why in the hell haven’t we taken then out, considering the drones we’ve heard are circling the skies?

    • shelldoll2

      Good questions. I think we paid off this government to arrange this little demonstration. Even foreign news sources may not get the whole story.

      I don’t like being so cynical but I have noticed the fact that when Obama shows his inability to lead or gets into political trouble suddenly everything supposedly turns in his favor.

      Whatever this administration is selling I ain’t buying. I think they lie, manipulate, and skew things to make it look like everything is fine.

      The bottom line is this:

      Those were American citizens murdered. It’s up to our government, not a foreign government, to respond.

      Obama do your job and defend your fellow Americans. My goodness this man tries to outsource everything. Even the protection of and outrage against the deaths of Americans. It’s not Libya’s or any other country’s job to protect our citizens here and abroad. It’s the job of our own government.

  • KenoshaMarge

    Romney in better shape than media believes

    From the “47%” fund-raiser video to the Libya announcement to Clint Eastwood to Paul Ryan, it seems that every week, the press declares Romney has made a fateful slip that has nailed his campaign in the coffin, once and for all.

    After all, the Beltway media “Gang of 500” said so, right?

    But these stories from the hermetic world of political media reporters are never quite as deadly as their breathless prose would suggest. Instead, Romney has kept grinding it out, pushing through tough coverage and Team Obama’s increasingly shrill and desperate attacks. He’s a better candidate than the anonymous critics on his own side would suggest, mainly because he has a key attribute many lack: guts.

      I repeat myself: From your fingers to God’s eyes … it seems it’s all up to that first debate?

      But I distinctly remember George W. Bush’s performance in his debate against Kerry — “poor” would be a kind term — but Bush was surrounded by most of his father’s experts in his cabinet and his national security team. Dick Cheney and many others knew Congress inside and out. Etc. And Kerry was nothing but a senator who married rich (twice) and can blame himself for the bad visual of him on that — what in the hell was that thing called — wind sail thingamajig?

      Crowley has been around the block. She knows what being a real journalist means. And I think that she also realizes that her moderation of the presidential debates is a turning point in her career. Don’t be surprised if she acts like a journalist again.

        we can hope.

      • KenoshaMarge

        I would LOVE to be surprised!

    Please check the footnotes, particularly #3.

    BTW, the organization Warden founded in the bay area was AFRO American Association, not African American Association.

    Now, this is what real journalism looks like.

      Thank you for the link. It explains many things. In particular it explains Obama’s reluctance to criticize anything Muslim. You don’t bite the hand that feeds you.

      Dead Americans be damned.

      Thank you!!!

      For those having issues scrolling to find the article mentioned in Footnote 1, it is on Page 14.

      Instead of the media being hell bent on destroying Palin, this is the kind of back story they should have been doing. We’re seeing today that Obama was telling one truth in his book when he said if the political winds change he’s stand with the Muslims.

    B–

    Actually Fox did cover it yesterday, however what is not included in the BBC video, is that in the second militia major complex, they fired into the the crowd, hurting many people, and so these libyans then all dissipated. They were able to damage the first militia place, but the second one damaged them.
    Its good that this happened, moderate muslims protesting back against radicals, but I don’t trust it and it isn’t enough when the other radical side has all the weapons to do real damage.

    • shelldoll2

      Thank you for that. I was wondering as Paul Harvey said was “The rest of the story”.
