Pressure Grows on Obama to Come Clean on Benghazi

Team Obama’s desperate effort to cover up the policy debacle in Benghazi, Libya is coming unraveled and some of the media are starting to take a hard look at what happened. CNN is but one telling example:

There are three dimensions to this story.

First, exposing the negligence of Patrick Kennedy, the Under Secretary for M (i.e., Management) at State, who is in charge of Diplomatic Security and rejected the advice of subordinates to beef up security at the consulate and to provide Ambassador Stevens with a robust, competent Personal Security Detail.

Second, exposing the CIA’s activities in Benghazi which, according to several press sources, involved the training of Libyan jihadists for paramilitary action in other countries, like Syria. One of the trainees betrayed their Agency handlers and helped target the facility, which is where the former Navy SEALS were killed by a mortar round.

Third, and most important and damning, the bizarre attempt by Obama to blame the Benghazi attack on an irrelevant video and to blame “Intelligence” for pushing the line that the attack was inspired by the video.

Congress need only ask to see the briefing that the Defense Intelligence Agency prepared and delivered to the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (CJCS) on the morning of 12 September. Either that briefing supports the Administration lie that an anti-Mohammed video was the spark that incited a spontaneous riot or that briefing actually identifies the likely Al Qaeda affiliated group behind the attack and references prior intelligence indicating the U.S. Consulate was a target of that same group. If there was really any support for the video excuse the White House would trot that evidence out and spread it around. But they are not because the intel tells a different, more damning story.

This story will continue to grow and will destroy any hope of an Obama second term.

    From the Washington Post:

    By Michael Birnbaum, Published: October 3

    BENGHAZI, Libya — More
    than three weeks after attacks in this city killed the
    U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans,
    sensitive documents remained only loosely secured in
    the wreckage of the U.S. mission on Wednesday,
    offering visitors easy access to delicate information
    about American operations in Libya.
    Documents detailing weapons collection efforts,
    emergency evacuation protocols, the full internal
    itinerary of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens’s trip
    and the personnel records of Libyans who were
    contracted to secure the mission were among the items
    scattered across the floors of the looted compound
    when a Washington Post reporter and an interpreter
    visited Wednesday.
    ####
    Why still no FBI allowed at the site? Why did Libya get $200 MILLION of U. S. dollars after this attack..with the State Department planning to give Libya another $400 MILLION more? Will the FBI be allowed at the site if the U. S. gives Libya $1.2 BILLION…like the U. S. gave to Egypt??????

    Your “three dimensional” scandal boils down to:

    > you think Stevens should have had more security and someone is too blame. Fine. Boy, that raises to the level of a national scandal.

    > some local who may have been involved with the CIA betrayed them. Boy, that has never happened before. Happens everyday in Afghanistan. Not sure what that has to do with Obama.

    > Rice and Carney got it initially wrong, as it was not a protest mob, but a terrorist attack. Again, big deal. You yourself said the exact same thing in your original post on this issue.

    It was a tragic event, but trying to turn this into a political attack on the President (as you do with everything) is very far fetched.

    “This story will continue to grow and will destroy any hope of an Obama second term.”

    You can only hope. Despite your best efforts, this is going exactly no where. Says a lot about you to use the tragic death of our Ambassador for a very cheap political shot. You certainly share that with Romney. Obama is not going to lose one vote over this.ain, big deal. You yourself said the exact same thing in your original post on this issue.

    • http://noquarterusa.net Larry Johnson

      You are not just a moron. You are ignorant as well. The Administration lied from the outset. How do I know? I do have friends on the inside who were part of the crisis response, or better put, lack of an adequate crisis response because the White House chose to play poltics rather than deal with the substance.

      The Obama Administration declined to provide the Ambassador with security requested by Diplomatic Security officials. The Obama Administration lied about what the intelligence actually reported.

      You do not know what the fuck you are talking about.

    • http://noquarterusa.net Larry Johnson

      “Not lose one vote?” I am certain of this, he lost at least one vote. Ambassador Stevens can’t go to the ballot box. You can be sure of that. Asshole!

  • piattq

    Larry I don’t see the MSM interested in this story. Amazing, damning. RR pushing it; I hope you are ultimately correct but so many Americans want nothing to do with war.

    • akaPatience

      Who said anything about war?

      • piattq

        WAR—who said that? That is how the left/Dems are spinning it—Republicans want war—Dems say O has a grand plan for developing peace in the ME etc and Repubs don’t get his vision because they want another war. (Stop rolling your eyes, I did not say I agreed with that nonsense.) What the spin produces I think is fear of more war, “over there”. Also taps into some anti-Israel sentiment that I did not know even existed. I get this partly from reading the comment section of the WSJ and the responses to Romney’s article on Benghazi andME policy there.

    Brace yourselves. My Obot husband reads Daily Kos and left the page open on our computer. I saw it. They’re anticipating an October surprise in which Obama will take out the evildoers who killed Stevens and the others. And they deny any characterization of it as being a Wag The Dog scenario. Sickening.

    When Barack Obama spoke before the Democratic National Convention in 2004, I turned to my family and said “We are looking at our first black president.” I was really excited to see this potential candidate. But three years after that, in 2007, I was hoping for the first woman president and supported Hillary Clinton. Still, I wanted to know more about Obama as it was becoming clear that he might prevail over Hillary in 2008. I turned to the Chicago newspapers, the Sun Times and the Trib to research Barack Obama. As 2007 and 2008 rolled by, I tried to read everything I could to learn more about Obama and the people who associated with him in Chicago politics. I even viewed the videos of Rev. Wright’s “sermons” before they were scrubbed from that church’s web site. When Obama “won” the nomination I decided I could not vote for him, although I was a lifelong Democrat and like so many lifelong Dems, I had never voted Republican. I decided to vote for McCain because I believed then, and I do now, that Barack Obama is corrupt. Most of the stuff written about Obama’s past never made it out of the Chicago papers to go national. But I still love to check out the Chicago papers now and again. They know Obama better than the average American in other states. Today, I followed a link from realclearpolitics over to the Chicago Sun Time and found this terrific piece by Steve Huntley. Enjoy:

  • Hokma

    I heard that Hillary is going to fully cooperate with the Congressional committee investigating Benghazi.

    While Hillary was organizationally responsible for the lax security, I just have this feeling (and it is only a gut feeling) that either she asked for increased security and was turned down for political reasons – or Obama lackeys did not aprise her of the severity of the need for added security and she just did not know.

    During those press conferences she was visibly angry more than she was upset.

    Do not be surpised if she resurrects herself by telling the truth about this cover up and the real reason for the lax security. It is very possible that she could pull a John Dean on Obama in a very clever way.

    • CathyInKs

      Hokma I read that too! Very cooperative. The thought crossed my mind too – either she’s not responsible because she was left out of the loop or she couldn’t get what she wanted. I hope she comes clean because right now – cooperative or not – she’s going to be left holding the bag. I’m also wondering if Hillary refused to do the Sunday talk shows that Susan Rice did and now of course Rice is seeing her credibility and career going to hell? It seems Obama has the “Midas touch in reverse”. Everything and everyone who comes into contact with him is destroyed!

    • HObama HObamanana

      I don’t buy any of this bullshit. If you call fully cooperating waiting until after the election or sometime next year then fine, maybe she is. What she is doing though, IMO, is further politicizing this by using the excuse that they are “investigating” and will report after the election sometime. She is stalling.

      But the GOP has to get a Senate majority.

      This guy is so far worse than Nixon. There is the blatant cover up of Benghazi as well as the Fast and Furious cover up.

      But like with Nixon, it starts with the hush money and then they threw in the kitchen sink of abuses. Obama and his administration has had more abuses than any past administration I can recall. It even started at the beginning of his terms when he fired an Inspector General without cause because he was investigating one of his buddies.

He is a murderer already and has a list to do more of the same…he’s a traitor of our people by giving away our national security secrets purposely…he’s a liar….he doesn’t give a damn if his own brother or aunt starve to death. There is only one thing right about him and its that he believes Americans are idiots: THEY ARE for showing no outrage over dozens of scandals including this one. His LAZINESS, LIES, AND BLAZE attitude couldn’t be more obvious and disgusting to me. But others: “oh you know its only politics as usual”.

    Pat Caddell thank you and a few others…but its way to little too late. Such corruption should have been stopped and you should have taken such a stand when Barney Franks was found to have a pedophillic brother in his house!!

    God help us. The country has lost its appetite for survival. There’s nothing left to do but prepare for the inevitable and protect my kid as best I can. I can’t believe that American citizens have become brainless zombies…they’re not even capable of voting in their self interest anymore! Please God spare my kid from suffering.

      If the GOP does get the majority in both houses and Obama is re-elected he will be impeached and fast. The GOP learned a lesson from Clinton who curried favor as a victim by the big bad GOP. This time they are doing things more judiciously and if he is re-elected he is finished and fast.

      • antielitist

        I don’t share your certainty that a repub congress would impeach the POS should he be re(se)lected.

        • Hokma

          Certainty – guarantee – and cannot be avoided. Issa already has the goods and King will and there is more.

          That was the case with Nixon. It started with the hush money for Watergate but then they threw in everything else that was being doine for good measure.

          • antielitist

            Don’t get me wrong. I want nothing better than the POS being tarred and feathered and exiled to some far off place where we never have to see or hear from him again.

            I just think the fortifications surrounding him are so rigged that nothing will happen to him. In Nixon’s time the press was looking for answers and the truth. Now, they’re just out to prop the POS up.

            That’s what I meant.

            In a sane world he would be tried and sentenced to life in prison. We are not in a sane world.

            • piattq

              Let’s face it; the press pretty much hated Nixon.

      • I_cant_take_this

        I believe you’re forgetting one thing: If anything happens to one of our conservative Justices, voting as you know it will be no more! That’s the real threat of a 2nd Obama term…along with nukes being dropped on our heads.

        • Hokma

          I am telling you that a GOP Senate majority assure an impeachment within a year and no justice is leaving that fast. Bush put in young guys.

        • elizabethrc

          Is there no method to change life tenure for the Supremes? Surely there is some protection against malfeasance in office.

      • I_cant_take_this

        By the way…getting impeached does what exactly? Clinton was impeached and nothing happened to him. Please explain how being impeached is anything worse than getting a LETTER from the UN for naughty conduct.

        • Hokma

          Clinton got indicted for lying about an adulterous BJ. Frankly I always thought the GOP went too far.

          What Obama did has nothing to do with BJs or break-ins. It has to do with real high crimes and in connection with foreign affairs and national security.

          • I_cant_take_this

            The crimes are not comparable (I don’t care about BC sex life) but impeachment is impeachment. Either it results in something meaningful or it doesn’t

          • CathyInKs

            First Obama is impeached. Then he faces criminal charges. Richard Nixon resigned so he wouldn’t be impeached. BTW, keep in mind 2010 was a surprise to many. Those of us out here in the real U. S. knew something was up. I’ll admit I didn’t know how big the backlash was going to be. But if worse comes to worse, he’s impeached and then charged with criminal charges. Otherwise keep our chins up – don’t buy into the polls and the screaming “left”!

            • piattq

              Remember impeachment is the first step in firing a president. The impeachment turns into being fired when the Senate votes—the Senate has never confirmed an impeachment vote. Let Obama be the first.

              • CathyInKs

                Thanks piattq! Yes, if it comes down to a 2nd term Obama (and I sure hope it doesn’t) then let Obama be the first and let him make history a 2nd time. Now that’s change I can believe in!

          • HObama HObamanana

            What Obama has done is more like forced sodomy.

        • TeakWoodKite

          I would suggest Obama be tried for negligent homicide, althought the office is immune from prosecution…

        • getfitnow

          Clinton was indicted by the House, but not convicted in the Senate.

          I heard, don’t know if it’s true. and in the scheme of things doesn’t matter, but I heard he only skated by one vote.

    “U.S. officials in Washington denied repeated requests from Americans in Libya for more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before last month’s attack that killed four Americans there, two Republican lawmakers said on Tuesday.
    U.S. Representatives Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz wrote a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton demanding details of the requests for more security – which they said were made amid numerous attacks on Westerners in Libya in recent months.” more at:

  • Hokma

    “This story will continue to grow and will destroy any hope of an Obama second term.”

    As I said in a prior thread, the third debate will be about foreign policy and it will be only important debate. Obama will be exposed and skewered for his foreign polioy disaster and it will be highlighted by the cover-up.

    If he were to win re-election and the GOP won the Senate, he would be foremly impeached for this, for the Fast and Furious cover up, as well as a rash of abuses of power.

    The cover-up of Watergate was about a botched robbery at the DNC headquarters. Obama’s crimes are far worse and more prevelant.

    What is interesting is that both cover-ups were in the quest for re-election.

    • I_cant_take_this

      Yeh right. We can wish for a fish to appear on a dish with a swish swish too. Republicans can’t even scratch their ass when they itch and you think they’ll defend themselves let alone bring charges against this despot? They’re far more preoccupied feeling guilty for being conservative to do such a thing and appearing MEAN and RIGHTEOUS.
      Please GOD help me with my temper…I’m going to explode.

      • Hokma

        It seems you forgot your meds. You may want to call 911 for those men in white before you jump off the same cliff Obama has taken us.

          Perhaps more people should be as mad as me and maybe we’d have a presidential candidate that can defend himself and his country better

          • beachnan

            Larry just told you, that this story will take Obama out. The Republicans do want to win, but with the msm you have fight 10 times as hard as the other guy. Just watch Dick Gregory last night moderating the senate debate in Massachusettes to understand what Republicans are up against. Hang in there, I don’t think it’s in the tank for Obama. I think there are a lot of silent people out there who will pull the lever for Romney/Ryan.

  • Dissentispatriotic

    Larry, I surely hope that last sentence is, indeed, what will happen. Doesn’t seem like enough time to expose the problem and disseminate the information to the voting public. The wheels of our government seem to turn oh so slowly, particularly when someone’s re-election is at stake.

    • elizabethrc

      I heard today that it is expected that some 40% of voters will do early voting. This is frightening. What happens if another smoking gun confronts Obama or another outrage is exposed and the public are moved to vote against him as a result? For any of that 40% (estimates are that Obama will get a large percentage of those votes) that DID vote for Obama, they can’t change their vote.
      This early voting is a bad idea, except for the military and those serving abroad.

      • beachnan

        I agree elizabeth, but one can hope that only the hardcore voters are voting early. Let’s face it, some would vote for Obama even if his actions caused WWIII. Having said that, I don’t like or understand early voting.

        • TeakWoodKite

          “if his actions caused WWIII.”
          he darn close to achieving this goal of his.

        • piattq

          I like early voting by mail because I can sit down with my ballot and the voter guide, a good cup of coffee and take my time, enjoying every moment of the franchise.

      • DianaLC

        I do vote early, and I mail-in my vote. I also help at the county clerk’s office to count votes. It’s my belief that those early voters are the most engaged already, though I do see lots of ballots going through in which the person votes only in the major elections and does nothing about the state and local candidates and issues.
        Basically, those people who don’t vote until election day are the ones who are as yet undecided.

        • TeakWoodKite

          - 1 Kite. I have known for four years who I would vote for, as many of us silently endured. Obama is very dangerous person and should not hold the office of POTUS. Everyday, there yet one more deadly example of Obama’s core indifference to the security and well being of this nation. He thought it was politically viable to sit in Wright’s church and agree with all the vile crap. Now he’s is the POTUS. How can anyone not see the deadly arrogance and still cast a vote for a admitted potsmoking gang banger?
          So much of what the fruits of our liberty bore are in serious jeopardy. It can not continue.

          • wylrae

            I didn’t iknow who I would be voting for four years ago, but I had a pretty good idea who I would be voting against. Saw Obama as a snake oil saleman in 2008 and doubted that he would be changing my mind; he hasn’t so knew sometime ago I would be voting against him no matter who was the Republican nominee.

      • TeakWoodKite

        But they can vote twice, by mail then in person.
        Obama already has a known track record for promoting voter fraud.

    • HObama HObamanana

      It really depends upon how much money they are willing to devote to this and how hard they want to hit Obama. Say they had someone like Kelsey Grammer narrate the ads. That would get people’s attention. I’d just tell the fricking truth that Obama has been a negligent leader that would rather fund raise and be eye candy than fight our enemies. I’d make certain everyone in America knew that the Obama Administration knew about the lax security in Libya and denied requests for additional security. I’d come right out and say that Obama is directly responsible for these deaths and for the riots throughout the Middle East. I’d show the Democrat party voting no to add God to their platform. I’d show all the Dems spiking the football about Bin Laden a few days before these attacks. Show him chastising Romney for not having foreign policy experience and follow this with our Embassy under siege, or flags burned and our Consulate burned to the ground. I’d show the Obama flag and compare it with the bloody hand prints at the Consulate. I’d condemn him as a narcissist that considers himself eye candy. And all kinds of other things. I wouldn’t cut the asshole a bit of slack. I would want the American people to come away after watching an ad about this traitorous socialist with the jaws dropping to the floor and unable to sleep at night knowing he is our President. Throw the kitchen sink at him and keep on throwing it.
