  • Jon Voight Lashes Out Against Obama In Lengthy Televised Statement

    The Hollywood Reporter ^ | 07/13/2014 | THR Staff
    The Oscar-winning actor aired grievances on Fox News, framing them as a message to the American public. "The Democrat party has become a very negative force," he said. In remarks framed as a message to the American public, actor Jon Voight emotionally aired his political grievances for several minutes in a televised statement on Saturday. Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D'Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama.
  • NYT: Captured Suspect Said Benghazi Attack Was Revenge For Anti-Islam Video

    Ahmed Abu Khatallah, the suspect captured by U.S. special forces on Tuesday for his role in the 2012 Benghazi attack, reportedly said he was motivated in part by the anti-Islam online video made in America, according to the New York Times. "What he did in the period just before the attack has remained unclear. But Mr. Abu Khattala told other Libyans in private conversations during the night of the attack that he was moved to attack the diplomatic mission to take revenge for an insult to Islam in an American-made online video," Times reporter David Kirkpatrick wrote in a story...

    Just when it seemed like the outrage on the political right over Benghazi had subsided to the point where only the announcement of House hearings put it back in the headlines, the exchange of captive U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl for five senior Taliban fighters at Guantanamo Bay came along. Now President Obama finds himself amid another foreign policy and national security controversy with fresh legs that even features Susan Rice — the White House official who played a prominent early role in the Benghazi controversy — making an encore. While it's still too soon to know whether the trade for...

    snip In the limited excerpts published Friday from Clinton’s Benghazi chapter, the former secretary of State continued to defend the administration from what she termed a “political slugfest.” Specifically, she defended the flawed explanation -- used by then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice five days after the attack -- that an obscure anti-Islam video fueled a protest gone awry in Benghazi. "There were scores of attackers that night, almost certainly with differing motives," Clinton wrote, according to Politico. "It is inaccurate to state that every single one of them was influenced by this hateful video.It is equally inaccurate to state that none...

    "I really believe, having read it, that it is the smoking gun warning here. You've got this emergency meeting in Benghazi, less than a month before the attack. At that briefing, the people are told that there are ten, ten, Islamic militias and al-Qaeda groups in Benghazi. The consulate can not sustain a coordinated attack and they need extra help. This information goes directly to the office of the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. So, again, you have the culpability of the State Department. This is a very specific warning that they're in trouble, they need help and they see...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton defended her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, writing in her new book that she will “not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans.” Clinton’s upcoming book, “Hard Choices,” is both a rebuke to Republicans who have seized upon the terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, and a roadmap for Democrats to defend the Obama administration’s reaction to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. Should Clinton run for president in 2016, her four years as secretary of state—including the deaths in Benghazi and the...

    Valid Questions: After Bill Clinton contradicted State Department claims about Hillary's health with news of a six-month rehab, her fitness should be as much of an issue as Sarah Palin's baby and John McCain's age. Karl Rove has taken a lot of heat for raising the issue of age and mental condition of a secretary of state who disappeared from public view as the Benghazi controversy arose. The questions are similar to those asked about President Reagan after his first debate with Vice President Walter Mondale, and those asked about Sen. John McCain and his prisoner of war experiences.

    WASHINGTON – Hillary Clinton is firing a preemptive blast at her fiercest critics on the Benghazi issue, accusing them of “flat-out deceit” in her forthcoming book. Moving to confront a lingering issue that is certain to draw attacks in any 2016 presidential contest, Clinton is training fire on Republican lawmakers who have launched a series of probes into the attacks that resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including U.S. the late Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens. “Many of these same people are a broken record about unanswered questions. But there is a difference between unanswered questions and unlistened to...

Top Obama assistant Ben Rhodes was recently caught advising Democrats on how to blame Benghazi on an internet video rather than a policy failure.

With dogged prosecutor Congressman Trey Gowdy leading the select committee, Democrats are expected to get meaner, nastier and more defiant in an attempt to discredit the committee and save Obama and Hillary Clinton.

Many in the agency were told, or were under the impression, that an investigation was in the works, but that is not the case. One person close to the...

Under Wolf’s bill, the special committee would have subpoena power and could force the issue of testimony and access to documents. If it did, we might yet see Obama exercise Executive Privilege just as he did in the “Fast and Furious” scandal. The bill has 177 sponsors, almost enough to pass the House today. The only problem is that House Speaker John Boehner won’t allow the bill to come to the floor. He has repeatedly blocked it...

    Accountability: Early on, the White House had the country needlessly wondering whether Benghazi was terrorism at all. That is long since settled; now a report from Congress confirms where the blame lies. From the beginning, President Obama launched a two-front war against those demanding full accountability on the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American personnel. The first was to deny that it was a pre-conceived al-Qaida operation timed for a key date. If the public swallowed that, it would mean that there was nothing to blame anybody for. The second...

    The attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, continues to be a line of political attack against the Obama administration, but a new report from the Republican-led House Armed Services Committee belies at least one aspect of the popular conservative criticism, that U.S. forces were ordered to “stand down” when they could have saved lives in Benghazi. The Republican-authored report’s findings are, by no means, a love letter to President Obama or then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. For example, the report concludes that U.S. personnel in Benghazi were woefully...

    In the wake of a series of scandals that have plagued the Obama Administration, Texas Senator Ted Cruz released a statement asking if President Obama will “announce meaningful action on the IRS, NSA, economy, Benghazi and ObamaCare” during his State of the Union Address next week in our nation’s capital.Shortly after the 2012 election cycle, news was released about a scandal regarding the IRS’s increased scrutiny of conservative non-profit organizations like Catherine Engelbrecht’s King Street Patriots and True the Vote organizations.Throughout the course of 2013, Members of Congress like Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) attempted to investigate the IRS and the...

    We have been fortunate to receive a copy of a letter by Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Va) that has been issued to Speaker of the House John Boehner. You can read it here. I was honored to affix my name to a letter from the family members of Sean Smith and Ty Woods and countless other retired senior military officers and conservatives demanding a House select committee on Benghazi.

    Wall Street Journal ^ | Jan. 22, 2014 7:18 p.m. ET | Gregory Hicks
    Last week the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence issued its report on the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The report concluded that the attack, which resulted in the murder of four Americans, was "preventable." Some have been suggesting that the blame for this tragedy lies at least partly with Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed in the attack. This is untrue: The blame lies entirely with Washington. The report states that retired Gen. Carter Ham, then-commander of the U.S. Africa Command (Africom) headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany, twice offered to "sustain" the special forces security team in Tripoli...

    Senate Intelligence Committee members did not include important testimony from Benghazi whistleblower Gregory Hicks about security at the U.S. mission in their final report, which had the effect of blaming the fallen ambassador and protecting a top State Department official from responsibility for the attack. "I was interviewed by the Select Committee and its staff, who were professional and thorough. I explained this sequence of events," Hicks (who worked with the late U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, in the lead-up to the attack) explained in a Wall Street Journal op-ed published Thursday. "For some reason, my explanation did not...

    we petition the obama administration to: Disclose the locations and actions of the President during the 2012 terrorist attacks on the consulate in Benghazi It has been well over a year since the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya which took the lives U.S. Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans. Yet, the White House has never disclosed any details on the location and actions of the President during the attack. His location before the attack is known, but the American people have never been told what the President was doing or where he was...

    David Remnick of The New Yorker showed up on PBS’s Charlie Rose Monday night to discuss his long, mostly sympathetic profile of Barack Obama from the January 27 issue of the magazine. Near the end of the interview, Rose focused in on the president’s reported desire to be “big.” The host wondered, “[W]hat's his definition of 'big,' and does he believe in his deep recesses of his own mind that the chance of that has slipped away?” Remnick replied that no, Obama does not think his chance of being “big” has slipped away. The editor then rattled off a laundry...

    January 20, 2014 The ongoing shame of Benghazi cries out for deeper investigation Cal Thomas When anything bipartisan comes out of a polarized Washington, one should be grateful. That's why a Senate Intelligence Committee report on the September 11, 2012, attacks in Benghazi that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans represents progress of sorts. The committee, chaired by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., faults the State Department and intelligence community for failing to prevent the attacks. The committee determined that the U.S. military command did not know about a CIA annex in Benghazi and that, writes the Washington...

    War On Terror: By refusing to acknowledge the role of al-Qaida-linked terrorists in the Benghazi attack, the administration has kept our military from hunting down and killing people responsible for the deadly 2012 attack. There would seem to be no shortage of targets for America's fleet of drones after the Senate release of a report documenting, despite the efforts of the New York Times and others to revive the video lie, the presence and participation of terrorists from no fewer than four al-Qaida-affiliated groups on the ground in Benghazi. Among the al-Qaida-affiliated groups involved in the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist...

    This makes two parents of men killed in Benghazi who’ve claimed that Hillary told them personally that the video was the prime mover in the attack. Tyrone Woods’s father went a step further and alleged that she vowed to have the filmmaker “arrested and prosecuted” — which, courtesy of California authorities, is what ended up happening. (See Rich Lowry’s new piece, “The Benghazi Patsy,” for background.) Why did she think it was some sort of comfort to the bereaved that the attack might have been motivated by the Mohammed movie? She went so far as to mention it in her...
  • Why Did the Benghazi Story Change?

    The truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, is finally coming out. An explosive intelligence report made public this week revealed that officials knew it was a terrorist attack that killed four Americans on September 11, 2012—and they knew right away. It also revealed that the lapse in security was preventable, based on intelligence the U.S. already had about the area. These new answers are unsettling.
