Cowardly Lying [Benghazi Barack - 80% bull and 30% crap]
The American Thinker ^ | November 3, 2012 | William L. Gensert

Posted on 11/03/2012 12:46:44 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife

Everyone has heard of Baghdad Bob...the guy who went on TV every night during the Iraqi War insisting to the world that Iraq was winning, despite American tanks rolling up behind him as he spoke.

....Baghdad Bob had one big lie: Saddam was winning. Benghazi Barack has a myriad of little lies, spinning a web of delusion and deceit with every telling.

He pretends he is the "energy president." This is perhaps his boldest fib. The refutation is seen on every corner, where gasoline prices are posted publicly for all to see. Yet he thinks if he says it, his media backers will run with it--and they have. But America is no longer buying his lies.

Many drive to work every day--if they are lucky enough to still have a job. Or...they drive the kids to activities--if their diminished cash flow still allows......

...And he's not done. By the time the EPA is finished killing the coal industry, and probably fracking in Barack II, the Sequel, the populace will be living with rolling blackouts and electric bills triple what they were in the bad old days of Bush....

He brags of preventing another depression. I often tell people that when I voted for Ronald Reagan in 1980, I prevented a nuclear war. At least I can make a case that my vote helped elect a man whose policy of peace through strength collapsed the Soviet Union, resulting in an end to the era of mutually assured destruction.

....The difference between a leader and a coward is that a leader does what is necessary, when it is necessary, for a greater good, despite the personal risks. A coward does what is expedient and beneficial for himself, despite the risk to others....

"............. Michael Hayden, the former CIA director....."Even though the 'fog of war' may have prevented them from knowing what to do during the attack, they should not have been caught off-guard completely, given the deteriorating security. A fundamental question is, what was the plan for security, since an attack like this was always possible? Everyone knew this was a very dangerous place and getting worse. There was no lack of evidence of the threat."

..........All interviewed agree with a former CIA operative who said that some sort of help should have been sent. "During a sense of urgency, we should do anything humanely possible to help. Not doing anything is not the way it goes. There should always be an understanding to try to save the lives of Americans when attacked."

Former army veteran and captain in the National Guard Pete Hegseth, who heads Concerned Veterans for America, does not give any credence to the "fog of war" excuse being used by Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. He cites all the factors that should have shown this administration what was happening in real time: an aerial drone providing surveillance, a real-time video, mortars being fired, and e-mail requests being sent out. He believes that "the reality is there was no appetite for anyone to be sent there. The job of any commander, including the commander-in-chief, is to cut through uncertainty. In this situation, we had people on the ground relaying what was happening, so how much uncertainty could there have been? We needed a decisive leader who understood his priorities. It is shameful we did not do everything we could have to rescue them. This is no surprise, since President Obama doesn't sit down to get many intelligence briefings." Hegseth went on to say that those serving overseas in dangerous places would wonder if this administration puts American lives first.

Fred Rustmann, a member of OPSEC and a former CIA operative, was appalled by this administration's priorities. The reason this administration did not send out a rescue force and had a "stand down order" is because it is "more concerned about collateral damage than saving CIA and SEAL lives. [Obama] chose not to upset the Arab world instead of saving American lives. There was instantaneous communication from the embassy and the annex. I know how it works. It's not a question that they did not have enough information, because they were getting real-time data from the situation reports. If the president did not know, it is due to the fact he chose not to know. Maybe because he did not want to show Americans how destabilized Libya has become."........................

This would make FNC’s Hernando Revolver’s head explode. He sees his buddy Barry Soetoro as the Hero of Benghazi.

"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction,"

Failure to uphold the Constitution! Dereliction of duty! Treason!

Islamophobia Is the Underlying Cause of Benghazi "So sayeth Ambassador Pickering, Hillary Clinton's appointee to head the "Accountability Review Board." Ambassador Pickering is tasked with getting the facts straight (after the election) about what happened in Benghazi and where accountability resides.

According to Ambassador Pickering, in remarks he made during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C., America is a seething hotbed of "Islamophobia," filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the benign Muslim religion. Of course, he couched his message in diplomatese. "Ignorant rubes," in diplomatese, becomes "[d]ata shows that those Americans who do not know Muslims, who do not know much about Islam, are the ones who harbor the greatest feelings of prejudice."

So we can see that Hillary appointed a man who comes into the investigation with an open mind and without preconceived scapegoats.

The real stupefying bafflement in all this is how someone with the experience and acumen of an ambassador can believe such suicidal pap. It is like battered wife syndrome, in which the wife believes that it is somehow her fault. The brutal behavior of her husband is really love gone awry because of her failings. For Pickering, Islam is a religion of peace, and all the hate, outrage, and violence rained down upon us just proves that it is our fault. It is a strange, malignant, suicidal idée fixe that controls his mind (and Hillary's and Obama's?) no matter what transpires.

The evidence is overwhelming.............."

Leftists always feel wonderful about punking the society for the sake of someone’s oversensitivity.

Every person reading these words will be long dead before the nation is able to recover from the damage this son of a bitch and all his little buddies have done.

I’m hearing two conflicting stories about resources in the area. Last night on O’Reilly, Geraldo claimed there was no way to provide military resources in time to help our people in Benghazi. Yet I’m being informed that we do have resources in the area that could have arrived in time to help according to that guy who was quoted Pete Hegseth. I find it difficult to believe that we had no people in the Mediterranean who could have arrived in time to help. It would be interesting to know exactly what resources we had and where they were.

I believe that the Obama administration has dug themselves into a hole too deep to climb out of. All they can do now is hope to push this beyond Nov. 6.

American Indians have called bho “Walking Eagle”. That sounds pretty impressive until you hear the translation.

When I was a Second Lieutenant, I was absolutely convinced that my platoon could defeat the entire Warsaw Pact. Fortunately, a couple of wise Sergeants sat me down and talked to me. They told me that it was good to be gung-ho and to have confidence in the platoon, but what kind of casualties would the platoon take if I just went charging against the whole Warsaw Pact? Didn’t it make sense to use every available means of support to win? The taxpayers had been kind enough to provide us with Close Air Support and Attack Helicopters and Artillery and Combat Engineers and Air Defense and Naval Gunfire etc...... They asked me what I thought of the men in the platoon. I told them I was proud of them and liked them. They then asked me to think of every one of those men being dead or horribly crippled and disfigured. My face turned red. I hadn’t been thinking. The Soldiers in my platoon were quite willing to die for their country, but only as a last resort. It was my job to make sure that every possible means of support was given to my Soldiers. I was horribly embarrassed at having been so stupid. Thank God for the wonderful Sergeants our military has. Thank God for the wonderful Sergeants who took the time to educate a young Second Lieutenant. It’s a shame the people in Benghazi didn’t have superiors who had been taught by wonderful Sergeants. They might still be alive.
