Skip to comments.Rory Cohen: Real October Surprise: 'Benghazigate'
Posted on 11/03/2012 1:38:39 AM PDT by Cincinatus' Wife
................It took more than a month for President Barack Obama to take personal, albeit qualified,responsibility for security failures at the American consulate in Benghazi,Libya,following initial contradictory reports which blamed an obscure YouTube video for the Sept. 11 attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. In speaking days ago to to MSNBC, Mr. Obama said, "There was a big breakdown, and somebody didn't do their job,they'll be held accountable."
In reality, he has provided no real answers and his administration has attempted to field blamewith prominent Democrats arguing Republicans have "politicized" the attack. But as Reagan took responsibility for actions that were taken by individuals within his administration during the Iran-Contra Affairof which he was unawareso should have Obama for the Libya attack,especially as it now appears his administration was aware that what transpired was indeed well-coordinated radical Islamic terrorism.
"'Benghazigate' is about the entire Obama policy towards national security, the perception of the threat and how to handle the Middle East," Dr. Walid Phares, an advisor to the Anti-Terrorism Caucus of the U.S. House of Representatives,said in an interview. "The initial mistake made by the Obama Administration was to fail to identify that the Jihadist threat embodied by al Qaeda,the Taliban and other affiliated terror groups in the world was essentially originating from an ideology. By disregarding the ideological identification the Obama Administration, since 2009,lost its ability to detect the mounting threat,and at the same time to identify the potential allies in the Arab and Muslim world."........
........had the Obama administration initially admitted the assault in Benghazi was al Qaeda-linked terrorism,in which the terror group Ansar al-Sharia almost immediately claimed responsibility, it would have opened a Pandora's box ahead of the election. "By admitting this was terrorism and al Qaeda-related one pillar of the Obama platform on national security collapses,"....

Spontaneous YouTube video protest
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.............."
The MSM continues to lie and cover up for Obama.
Only Fox is asking questions, and I’m afraid it’s just not enough to make much of a difference.
The White House will continue to stall, running the clock out.
Americans will go to the polls unaware of just what the sob has done.
The CIA held a briefing the other day for reporters in which a new version of events at Benghazi was handed out. Fox News was excluded from the briefing. This is an indication that the leadership of the CIA has become one more component of the Obama Campaign. If Romney wins he needs to clean out this corrupt element as they pose a danger to national security.
We know who "didn't do their job".
As for holding him accountable, that will take place next Tuesday.
Right. Well said.
"I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction,"
This is a clear violation of the US Constitution! Impeach NOW!!!!
The problem with this surprise is the coverup. Not the White House coverup. The media coverup.
A lot of people have no clue this even happened, let alone that horrible decisions were made.
Bush’s 24-year-ols DWI back in 2000 was much more important than this. /s
Man-caused disaster. Whatever happened to that term? How many times did they use it, once?
It took more than a month for President Barack Obama to take personal, albeit qualified, responsibility for security failures at the American consulate in Benghazi
Responsibility without consequences is nothing.
The fact that 0bozo ordered his underlings to lie and blame the murders on a “justified” riot over a video proves that he is a traitor and must be impeached.

Dont Get Swept up in O(mob)ama Mentality: Surviving the Romney Riots
by CTD Suzanne
Be it conspiracy theory or not, there is Internet chatter about planned riots after the election if President Obama does not win. Historically, riots have occurred during time of intense political strife, racial tension, and harsh economic conditions. In the coming days and weeks, the time is ripe for people to be angry and frustrated following the outcome of the election. Regardless of your political affiliation, everyone thinks the other candidate is going to destroy America; whether through taking away our rights or taking away our money, neither one will we tolerate. Though there is no way to predict exactly when and where civil unrest will happen, it is best to prepare just in case violent rioting breaks out in your city.
