    In a recent Democrat debate, Hillary Clinton lied about the death of Sean Smith and about a video being the cause. She claimed it was the “fog of war” that made many different scenarios possible. I watched as the bodies of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith and CIA contractors Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were brought back to the United States, their flag draped coffins set in places of honor. Front and center were our President and Muslim in Chief, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton acting the part of Secretary of State and others who also...

    What’s life like when you’re surrounded by sycophants? No matter what you do, no matter how wrong, embarrassing or just plain stupid they will tell you how great you look, did, are. Take Hillary for example. “What difference at this point does it make!?!”Her aides were tripping over themselves to congratulate her for nailing it at the first Benghazi hearing: Notably, the emails show her aides congratulating her after her initial January 2013 testimony on the attacks before Congress. During that hearing, she got into a dispute with Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., over the conflicting narratives about the motivation for...

I’m well aware that they’ve abandoned any sense of right, wrong, or common decency. I’m wondering about the rank and file. After all, even Darth Vader had some good in him, so I have to assume there are at least a few Dem supporters who found Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi testimony disconcerting.

Abu Anas al-Libi, 50, was captured in Libya by U.S. commandos in Oct. 2013 and brought to New York where he was due to stand trial.

    (Deputy National Security Advisor) John Brennan also ran a highly compartmentalized program out of the White House in regard to weapons transfers, and Stevens would not have been trusted with that type of information. Stevens likely helped consolidate as many weapons as possible after the war to safeguard them, at which point Brennan exported them overseas to start another conflict. Elite counter-terrorist operators from America’s Delta Force were deployed to Libya as 'analysts,' which allowed President Obama to declare that America did not have any boots on the ground but was simply providing air support for the rebels.

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on Dec. 20 before the House of Representatives and Senate foreign affairs committees on a report on the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, the committees said on Wednesday. The attack on Sept. 11 killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, and raised questions about the adequacy of security in far-flung posts. Republicans have criticized Democratic President Barack Obama's administration for its flawed early public explanations of the attack. They have also criticized shifting explanations of why talking points given to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations...

On June 11, the British ambassador's motorcade was hit by a rocket-propelled grenade, wounding a medic and doctor. The next day, the ambassador was gone and the British Benghazi post was closed. At the same time, the Red Cross, after a second attack, shut down and fled the city. "When that occurred," says Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, who headed the military...

The sentence was the result of a plea bargain between lawyers for Mark Bassely Youssef and federal prosecutors. Youssef admitted in open court that he had used several false names in violation of his probation order and obtained a driver's license under a false name.

Ubben’s assignment is close protection for U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, which isn’t always easy. Stevens, a former Peace Corps volunteer, likes to get out among the people in the countries where he serves, especially Libya, which he helped to liberate from Muammar Gaddafi during the war last year.

    (TheBlaze/AP) — A senior Republican senator Sunday accused President Barack Obama’s aides of deliberately covering up the details of the Sept. 11 attack in Libya that killed a U.S. ambassador so voters wouldn’t question Obama’s handling of the war on terror. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, a long-time point man for the GOP on national security issues, said he believes the administration knew within 24 hours of the assault that it was a coordinated militia attack and was not tied to other anti-U.S. protests across the Middle East. According to Graham– who is investigating the attack– the administration suggested...

But the officials say the administration also is weighing whether the short-term payoff of being able to claim retribution against al-Qaida is worth the risk that such strikes would be ineffective and rile governments in the region. Details were provided by three current and one former administration...

The mere fact that we were approaching 9/11 was a crucial enough reason to attend not one but all the briefings. President Obama attended none. Worse, this is apparently...

    Liars I am so furious about this I can hardly write. I hope this post is not too incoherent. As anybody with a modicum of intelligence could have predicted, the Obama misadministration's story on the Bengahzi murder of Ambassador Stevens has fallen apart. As I wrote before (here and here, for example) this misadministration has been lying about what happened in Benghazi. They tried two tactics to hide the facts. First, we had the hapless State Department spokesman, Victoria Nuland, saying there would be no more comments because the smoldering Benghazi consulate was now a "crime scene" and the FBI...

    Al Arabiya News ^ | September 19, 2012 | AFP, Video by Fahid al-Bakush shared with AFP
    The article mentions that "Another person is seen checking the pulse of the victim." Unfortunately the video is not included in the story; however, I am including the link to an updated and slightly longer video which does indeed show a Libyan checking Ambassador Stevens pulse at the 1:16 mark.

    I am not sure how accurate the translation is but this video has English subtitles and places the Allahu Akbar statement in context. The subtitles clarify what a newsprint story cannot--the timing of the spoken words. The second Abeena30 video is a touching memorial for Ambassador Stevens. It should autoplay right after the subtitled rescue attempt video.

    The enthusiastic celebration of Arab Spring by the American left has at last been repudiated by the gruesome realities of Islamic Jihad. But don’t expect to hear much about this sudden intrusion of brutal fact into the left’s pathetic dabblings in American foreign policy. Politically embarrassing events such as the failure to protect American diplomats being murdered and dragged through the streets before cheering throngs rarely make for lasting headlines, especially not when a Democrat president has ignored advance warning of the threat which he more than anyone else was responsible for bringing about. “Once the US successfully overthrew [Muammar]...

    As horrible news broke this morning about the death of Christopher Stevens, U.S. ambassador to Libya, at least four graphic photos purportedly showing his death during the savage embassy attack began circulating. The man in the photos appears to be the ambassador, but some reports indicate Stevens died in the hospital.
