Skip to comments.PRUDEN: The web of deceit about Benghazi begins to fray
Posted on 11/13/2012 1:33:44 PM PST by Arthurio
What did the president know, and when did he know it? Of what steel are the Republicans in Congress made? Were about to find out.
Big scandals from little leaks grow. Watergate was at first only a third-rate burglary. Bubba thought he was only trying to cover up the details of a failed real-estate scheme down on the White River. Humiliation, resignation and even an impeachment followed.
History warns presidents that second terms are never Sunday picnics, and the unfolding exploding is more accurate of the story of what really happened on a violent night in Benghazi, Libya, and the days that followed is Barack Obamas introduction to his next four years. We probably aint seen nothin yet.
Nearly everyone suspects that Mr. Obama, trying to avoid questions about the mishandling of Benghazi, was running out the clock, hoping to stumble past the election before being overtaken by facts and hard reality. Some of the congressional Republicans are talking bravely now about getting to the bottom of the sordid story, and the Democrats give every sign of attempting to squelch and evade: lets move on, nothing to see here.

Even if we find out that the oval office is where the deceit started, its current occupant will get a free pass. A compliant media and a public that is 50% brain dead will guarantee that.
How many times did we hear this during Clinton, during Obama I?
No web of deceit is going to fray. Nothing is going to be done about any of it.
How many times are they going to push this line of buell.
They never tell Obama anything ,anytime ,anywhere = Plausible deniability
Pot metal, base metal or tin - certainly no form of steel.
Apply an Algoreithm:
“no controlling legal authority”
I think it is much more likely that the FBI planted the classified docs on that computer. The stench of cover-up is all over this investigation.
Benghazi was a non-story to the MSM and now they are consumed with the cover-up part. This thing has more legs than a centipede.
We can expect, in his pursuit of justice, Boener to be as solid as jello in an earthquake.
I well remember how the media jackals hounded Nixon out of office for what in comparison to Benghazi was nothing. Now when it is becoming apparent that people in the White House Situation Room, possibly including Obama himself, watched four Americans get killed in real time video and did nothing the media is silent.
I don’t believe anything will happen to the Obama administration. These guys are professionals at corruption and deceit. I’ve never seen anything quite like it. They make Clinton look like an amateur and that’s scary.
Add the FBI head to the list.
You are correct. The media will back O, the steeple don’t care and the republican politicians are spineless. It doesn’t matter what Obama did he will skate.
That and the Senate would never convict this scum, no matter what he did.
Congress found Rangel, Waters and Holder guilty of lotsa things and NOTHING happened. Why will this be any different? Unless I miss my guess, the result will be “SO WHAT”. Lets focus on solving the other issues first UNLESS we are willing to “hang the guilty”, which, by the way I support.
Just maybe the O admin has blackmailable stuff on Boehner.
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!
zero is the official Reader of the TOTUS. Reminds me of Chance the Gardener in Being There.
That is because Valerie Jarrett is the POTUS.

At this stage, it could be proved that Obama personally called off the rescue team and nothing will happen to Dear Leader. He might issue a statement that the risk of collateral damage was too great or this was a necessary sacrifice for Muslim outreach and world peace; and that would be the end of it.
Exactly! I'm convinced he could walk out of the White House and shoot someone on the street in cold blood, and the Senate wouldn't lift a finger.
They kept Banghazi under wraps to get Obama back into the WH. Now that the deal is done, Petraeus resigns to keep himself from having to testify and the MSM will keep trumpeting the Petraeus infidelity story. Once they find out (as if they don't already know) the real story behind Benghazi and all the arms that were shipped to Syria and the Muslim Brotherhood...they'll get amnesia again to protect this current administration.
It was announced today for example that the FBI has spent more time in this Broadwell's apartment than they have invetsigating the consulate facility in Benghazi.
A coverup over a coverup.
A plausible theory. They use him as window dressing when they want to make him look good, as when they took down Ben Laden.
The L/MSM must be eating this *hit up. Tons of stuff to keep them buzzing now that the diversions have been put in place for them to act upon.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! *wipes eyes* HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
If Operation “Fast and Furious” could not derail this regime, what chance does Benhghazi have? For we have swallowed a camel, and with apparent relish, are about to swallow yet another whopping pack of lies that is the sacking of an embassy and the murder of an ambassador with his consort. We should strain at gnats about the troubles with marital fidelity concerning some of our former military?
We have our sacrificial lamb, General Petraeus, and the finger has been shifted away from the real perpetrators (or is that “perpetraitors”?) in the White Hut. So far as they are concerned, problem solved. The purge in under way, and the natives are calmed down by the actions taken.
Seething thoughts about how to rectify and call to justice the obvious inequities visited upon us as citizens of the late great United States of America, leads to consideration of some pretty radical responses. Some of them look like pretty rough play....
All in the name of “civil disobedience”, doncha know. Although there may be some question as to “civil”, and “disobedience” covers a multitude of behaviors.
Some bordering on sinful.
Maybe Clapper is next on the list.
The Chicago/Little Rock machine then played hardball with a threat to reveal his affair. Having done the wrong thing by having an affair, Petraeaus decided to do the right thing by resigning.
He will eventually testify truthfully, assuming he avoids Fort Marcy Park. However, before he testifies the mainstream media will treat him brutally and tell us he eats puppies for breakfast.
enquiring minds want to know why.. detained person(s) i.e. militants, at a CIA “prison” .. under the Obama administration.. operating in BenGhazi?? pinch me,, is the media awake yet? Get Gitmo on the line.

The body of retired Army General and former CIA head David Petraeus was found yesterday in Washingtons C & O canal after it was snagged by a 13 year old boy when he snagged it while fishing.
Petraeus, who had been granted congressional immunity for his testimony on the circumstances surrounding the murder of the 4 Americans at the Benghazi consulate earlier this year, failed to appear at the December 6th hearing.
It was reliably reported that he told key House Intelligence Committee staffers that he was ready to come clean and do the right thing.
Due to the high profile nature of this case, Attorney General Eric Holder has put the FBI in charge of the investigation. The body, found with an estimated 300 pounds of steel weights tied to it with steel cables and over 6 bullet wounds, was sent to the FBI Forensics Lab for examination.
While an expedited full autopsy report is expected in 2 to 3 days, a high level FBI spokesman declared at a press conference that This looks like a clear case of suicide to us.
I can understand everything you say except this: the public announcement of the affair. Why did that have to come out, he knew it would hurt his reputation and devastate his wife. It seems like he was forced to hurt his wife and his reputation publicly, when one would expect a private request to step down and spare his wife (and rep). It was a humiliating scenario, why did it happen? There is more here than we are being told.
Post script: He's now worth 50 million dollars.
There's no justice in this life.
Thankfully there are still a few GOP House members with some brass and who may take the lead on this. Remember, the Committees have a lot of leeway in their proceedings and don’t have to kowtow to the House leadership if they have the guts to tell them to butt out.
People who worship him will believe anything he says. He says “I had no idea what was going on” and people believe it. Ask them “Shouldn’t the president have known?” And they’ll say “Not really. That’s not his job. He has other people to do that.”
Oklahoma has two guy's that used to create some waves.....But they are silent of late.
Or is it they are talking...but the biggest enemy the U.S.A. faces....( the MSM...) isn't reporting on them?
I think it's a twofer.....And I'm very sick and tired of it.
I don't like to think about what sort of thing it will take to awaken the American people.
I’d agree were it nor for the hazel eyes, large breasts, scorned wife, American hero in the midst of defense cuts..
I think this whole thing has $$ written on it for a pack of lib news hounds looking for their next paycheck.
Nobody died over Watergate. Benghazi cost lives. Look how the Media has hounded Obama over Fast and Furious. Expect them to redouble their efforts.
Petraeus was at odds from the beginning with O’bummer.
O’bummer got him where he could keep an eye on him - then sent a gal to compromise him - then sat on the ‘scandal’ until they needed it to shut him down or cover a situation like Benghazi.
It's the Chicago Way.
Unfortunately, Petraeus took the bait.
I wouldn't be surprised if he now has family safety being threatened to keep him for spilling the beans. (Remember Ollie to to put a security fence and other security measures from the threat against him.) Hope he doesn't ‘commit suicide.’
He's a good man caught in a web more evil than we have seen in our lifetimes. A good man and a long, honest and distinguised career delibrately destroyed.
What constantly amazes me is that so many people, even on this forum of all places, forget that Obama is nothing but a continuation of the Clinton empire. Obama has the Chicago mafia, but they are NOTHING compared to the Clinton machine.
Obama had to sell his soul to the Clintons in order to “ascend” to worldly power, and the Clintons will extract their remuneration when they choose.
Obama is Clinton, the Clintons are Obama.
They make tinfoil hats on voting days
That's unlike Wes. He is outstanding at correct spelling, grammar and usage. I'm surprised he used "steel" instead of "steal."
