Is the breaking news that a reporter actually wrote this in an article?

>I just keep wondering why Obama had to overthrow the government in Libya? Did Gaddafi attack us and I haven’t found out about it?<

Gaddafi was running his big mouth saying how great it was for a Kenyon to be President. Also how great it was that the USA finally has a Muslim President.

Check the news reports about 2 weeks before “the mission”

That’s what it smells like to me

See your point. Was driving with my sister through Detroit and we decided to drive past one of our childhood neighborhoods near 8 mile. Well, all the old houses in the neighborhood were gone. Replaced by a grass field. An entire neighborhood wiped out by liberal terrorist policies.

It wasn't 0bama that divulged that.....the NYT told the enemy about the cellphones while W was still a first term president.

That isn't to diminish all the other "leaks" from the 0 admin; just trying to put credit where credit is due.

That said, I agree that we can state the 'what' without compromising the 'how' .......especially when it is pretty obvious.

Knew within 72 hours, heck, he watched it happening in real time in the situation room. They had feed from the drone and the surveillance camera inside the building. The CIA pieced together the film from both the drone and surveillance cameras and showed it to the Congressmen. That is what Obama saw on 9/11. If he is too dumb to know what he was watching, he should not be POTUS. My guess is that Obama ordered the stand down immediately after watching the ambassador being dragged out of the building and carried through the streets. Senator Dan Coats told CNN the video was 'combination of video from a surveillance camera and a drone'. He added: 'It gave us a good picture, from the surveillance standpoint, what was happening.'

“Has the Republican establishment written the rules in a way that makes it impossible for us to overcome? This last question is what I really want to hear addressed since that’s our only option without abandoning the party in favor of a new party.”

A hearty AMEN to that.

Obama thought the Arabs would love him for turning Egypt and Libya over to the Muslim Brotherhood. He was soooo mistaken. Obama says he is a black man. Arabs buy and sell black men.

This is what I posted on an earlier thread:

Ok, here’s my personal analysis of what happened on 9/11. Some of it is based on the facts that were revealed yesterday after the Petraeus testimony, some of it is based on statements by Obama and some of it is pure conjecture.

First all, there was a group of Obama top advisors watching the events as they unfolded in Benghazi, watching on a screen in the situation room.

Obama claims that issued the order that we do whatever it takes to get those men out of there (the ambassador at least). So I will take him at his word.

Then a little later they see the dead or dying body of the ambassador being dragged out of the building and paraded in the streets of Benghazi by the terrorists. (No they weren’t taking him to the hospital as Hillary claimed)

That is when Obama issued the stand down, figuring that it was over, too late, nothing could be done and he didn’t want to further anger the terrorists. Obama never gave a second thought to the others at the CIA facility a mile away.

Obama gave up and went to bed because he had a big day of campaigning planned and the rest of the people in the situation room (probably Panetta, Biden, Clapper and a couple of others) told him that they would stay and monitor the situation.

Then the second wave of the attack started and Panetta and the others made the decision not to wake Obama and to do nothing. It was a giant Charley Foxtrot and it was all their fault.

So, they came up with the cover story, including the idiocy about the ambassador being carried to the hospital, and the false narrative about the video. I think that they also came up with the idea to blame Petraeus if the narrative began to fall apart, which it did.

For that reason, I believe that Clapper played a large role in the creation of the false narrative.

That’s a lot of coordinating. Anything’s possible, I guess. But I think easy answers are best.

THE TESTS OF TRUTH

1. Logical consistency.
2. Agreement with experience.
3. Economy of explanation.

I think there’s some grifters at work fooling people and stealing money. This fits Test #3.

It’s possible. But why fight the whole country? If Obama was afraid that Gadaffi was exposing his secrets, why not a drone strike? Much easier. Obama is making money off of war in the Middle East.

Many, many times during the campaign, Romney promised to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. What would his replacement be called if not Romneycare? After the election, he proposed adding dental care. The papers have quoted him as saying, "What I would do if I were a Democrat running four years from now — I’d say dental care ought to be included in Obamacare.”

I agree with your statement Arabs don`t hate him...he`s their tool. Sometimes in the fog, it is easy to forget our nation is at war. There will be information and disinformation. The arabs are masters of disinformation and propaganda. Many Americans are simply unknowing, many Americans are uninformed. Other Americans don't care. Still other Americans work for the enemies of America. No doubt, it is more than difficult to unite people to the truth, protect, serve and defend. The least qualified do attain the highest of offices. Once was known as the Peter Principle. Today, it is called, justified treason. And the elected in D.C. practice it often, and presently there is the in your face from D.C. of how dare you the People say anything. The media is compliant, many of our elected are compliant. Those few trying to serve and protect America, if a ruse is not being run, are forever the first to be told sit down, shut up, your opinion does not matter. Forever?

I saw this on Twitter (sorry for the CAPS):

“OBAMA HAS DONE AN EFFECTIVE JOB, NO NOT AS PRESIDENT, BUT AT TRASHING REPUBLICANS....”

It’s so true. And Obama will continue to do this until he gets control of the House in 2014 and thereafter to get another democrat president elected in 2016.

Forget the “Clinton Machine” we have our work cut out for us.

It’s time the GOPe learn how to fight.

I think this much maligned attorney and the US Military are the only hope ....

It really is a shame that America has been reduced to a form of Government where the checks and balances built into the system by our founders are all embroiled in the same cover up. NOW we have to contend with "We the People" have spoken and reelected this asshat.

"I just learned that the original number of MANPADS floating around Libya was not 20,000 —it was 22,000."

I remember the TWA 800 episode just days before the Summer Olympics in Atlanta, in 1996. Many believe it was taken down by a ground to air missle like those SA-7s, which were available at that time. These missiles are old technology but they are effective. In fact, last October an anti-aircraft "Strela SA7" missile was fired for the first time from the Gaza Strip at an Israeli warplane, but missed its target. That we gave Libyans terrorists 22,000 such anti-aircraft missiles is one more scandal in the saga of the Obama Regime's mismanagement of the Middle East. You have raised an important point. Good for you.

“Obama’s brilliant Middle East policy led to this. Right now it could lead to much bigger things, if the Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt gets seriously involved in Gaza and we have the first Egyptian-Israeli conflict since 1973.”

It’s been reported that missiles are being sent from Sinai, which is part of Egypt. Obama and Hillary Clinton, with Huma Abedin right there with Hillary, orchestrated the take-over of Egypt by a Muslim Brotherhood head. Huma Abedin’s parents are leaders of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood and close with Morsi. A terrorist supporter is president of the United States.

There is no doubt the usurper knew about it from the very beginning.
They claim they can’t ‘tell’ for fear of alerting Al Qaeda, hence the ‘alteration’ of the talking points from CIA’s assessment.
OK, even if they can’t tell,
CAN’T THEY ACT?
DID THEY ACT?
NO!
Why not act?
Because there was no request for help ever?
LIES NOTHING BUT LIES!
There are evidences upon evidences that there were requests for help.
So did they intentionally let the Americans die by not sending help?
Oh they say it is not safe to send help .....

Who can argue with these lame excuses?
The lamestream media surely won’t.
The spineless congress gritters just put up a show.

“Arabs buy and sell black men.”

That is part of history the ignorant brainwashed blacks today have failed to learn like which political party enslaved and practiced racism in the Senate/House and as governors in many states for close to two centuries. A little hint, it wasn’t the Republicans.

Arabs have been selling blacks for centuries. One of my direct line ancestors and a younger brother were given money. My ancestor was a Brit sea going captain, who got money and a ship. They were given money to leave England to allow their older brother to stay and run the estate/business. The younger brother ended up in Italy, and I don’t know much about him.

Anyway, in the late 1690’s this ancestor of mine stopped off in a port in Africa on his way to the what later on became the states. He bought a slave girl, who became his wife. They settled in one of the Carolina coastal areas. The Arabs at that time controlled all of the sea ports in Africa, and they controlled the slave business.

She was probably kidnapped by someone like Jesse Jackson and sold to the Arabs, who in turn sold her to my ancestor.

There are affirmative action blacks today, who believe that evil white Republicans kidnapped blacks and sold them as slaves in Africa in the 1600-1700’s and still do it today.

They are the same idiots, who voted for an Oreo, whose black lineage which apparently were not from slaves. Maybe, his ancestors kidnapped ancestors like mine and sold them to the Arabs to be sold as slaves. The slave kidnappers did not become slaves as long as they kidnapped other blacks and traded them to the Arabs to be sold as slaves.

Hell, he knew it in real time! Stop this crap.

There's a reason there's a Situation Room in the WH. It's not just for photo-ops during big storms. This week's testimony established beyond any doubt that there was at least one live drone feed during the Benghazi assault. No one has disputed it. Congressmen of both parties have seen the footage. That footage was running live in the Situation Room. While Zero was in the WH. If he managed to watch the bin Laden raid, he sure must have been watching this.
