    The House Intelligence Committee, led by Republicans, has concluded that there was no deliberate wrongdoing by the Obama administration in the 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, said Rep. Mike Thompson of St. Helena, the second-ranking Democrat on the committee. The panel voted Thursday to declassify the report, the result of two years of investigation by the committee. U.S. intelligence agencies will have to approve making the report public. Thompson said the report “confirms that no one was deliberately misled, no military assets were withheld and no stand-down...

    Classified info at compound required U.S. Marine protection Did the State Department under Hillary Clinton deliberately refuse to classify what has been described as sensitive information housed at the U.S. special mission in Benghazi? The storage of any officially classified information in the compound would have required the deployment of the U.S. Marine Corps Embassy Security Group for protection. Instead, external security at the facility was provided by unarmed local Libyan guards. Armed members of the Martyrs of the February 17th Brigades served as the official quick-reaction force that worked within the compound. The Brigade is an offshoot of the...

    Despite President Obama's promise to stay focused on hunting down those responsible for the 2012 Benghazi attack -- and despite a recent arrest touted as a major takedown -- sources say little has been done to nab the other suspects. According to multiple sources on the ground, including some with direct knowledge of the operations to identify and hunt the Benghazi suspects, intelligence that could have been acted upon at times has been ignored or put on hold. Further, they say, the recent capture of Ahmed Abu Khattala -- now on a ship bound for the U.S., expected to arrive...

    Kenneth Timmerman’s new book, Dark Forces: The Truth about What Happened in Benghazi, focuses on far more than just the events that occurred during the storming of the American consulate in Libya by Islamic jihadists on September 11 2011. According to Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon, the book “contextualizes” by taking an historical narrative of the events leading up to the fateful day for America and the aftermath of the crisis, which took the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Ty Woods.

    "Shocker: Seized Benghazi suspect worked for U.S. Aligned with American interests against Gadhafi regime" TEL AVIV – Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattallah, seized by the U.S. on Sunday, once served as a key conduit in an effort staged by the U.S. and Arab interests to aid insurgents fighting in Libya and later in Syria, according to informed Middle Eastern security officials. It was not immediately clear whether Khattallah himself worked directly with the Americans or if he knew he was part of an effort that involved the U.S.. He did, however, receive funds for his participation in a nexus coordinated...

    “Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.” This adviser continued: “Hillary told Obama, ‘Mr. President, that story isn’t credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11.’ But the president was adamant. He said, ‘Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.’”

Hillary, surprised by the request, replied, “Yeah, I’m not gonna make...

    Well, this is a bombshell. The terrorists who attacked the U.S. consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 used cell phones, seized from State Department personnel during the attacks, and U.S. spy agencies overheard them contacting more senior terrorist leaders to report on the success of the operation, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News. The disclosure is important because it adds to the body of evidence establishing that senior U.S. officials in the Obama administration knew early on that Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and not a spontaneous protest over an anti-Islam video that had gone awry,...

    The rush to “stand up” the Benghazi Consulate (resulting in inadequate security) was a failed plan to launch Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to investigation by retired Navy Adm. James Lyons. Lyons is working with the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi, founded by Accuracy in Media under Roger Aronoff. Adm. Lyons revealed his findings on the “Conservative Commandos” radio show broadcasting on WNJC 1360 AM in Philadelphia June 4. I was the co-host Wednesday leading the interview. What was Ambassador Chris Stevens doing at the lightly guarded, unsecured mission in Benghazi, away from the more-secure U.S. Embassy at Tripoli? This...

    A standard defense for Hillary Rodham Clinton when facing questions about Benghazi, Libya, has been to cite her commissioning of a report from the State Department’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), which took a deep look at the attacks that claimed the lives of four U.S. personnel on Sept. 11, 2012. In testimony before Congress in January 2013, Clinton said: “I hurried to appoint the Accountability Review Board led by Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen so we could more fully understand from objective, independent examination, what went wrong and how to fix it. I have accepted every one of their recommendations.”...
  • Madam Secretary Made a Difference (Lickspittle Alert)

    When politicians have trouble spinning their own glories, that’s a problem. So it was bizarre that Hillary Rodham Clinton, asked at a forum in April about her legacy at the State Department, had trouble articulating it. That feeds into a narrative — awaiting her memoir on Tuesday — that she may have been glamorous as secretary of state but didn’t actually accomplish much. In fact, that’s dead wrong, for Clinton achieved a great deal and left a hefty legacy — just not the traditional kind.... No, her legacy is different. For starters, Clinton recognized that our future.... More fundamentally, Clinton...

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...

    ...Clearly, the Benghazi terrorist attack had to be kept under wraps, no matter what, lest Obama’s campaign be blown out of the water. Thus, a decision was made to do nothing so as not to attract attention to Benghazi – a decision inimical to the national interests, but logical from the political point of view. Hence the White House’s refusal to mount a military rescue operation and its cold-hearted willingness to sacrifice Americans in Benghazi. As a matter of fact, aside from the four Americans who were killed in Benghazi, there were another three dozen U.S. personnel who were abandoned...

    Illegal arms were shipped to Syrian rebels from Libya and this could be the reason Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton lied and claimed the attack on the consulate was the result of a video. Seymour Hirsch published an investigative report stating that there is an addendum to the Senate Intelligence Committee report which explains what the CIA was doing in Benghazi. Our government was shipping arms from Libya through Turkey to Syrian rebels before we realized they were al-Qaida. The reason the government lied was probably to conceal an illegal operation to arm Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the coordinator....

    Accountability: Early on, the White House had the country needlessly wondering whether Benghazi was terrorism at all.

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...

    Benghazi: Hillary Clinton regrets Americans died in what a Senate panel said was a preventable terrorist attack that she downplayed. While the committee didn't acknowledge her role, it can be called criminal negligence. What difference at this point do the regrets of former Secretary of State Clinton make, as expressed in an interview Monday during the National Automobile Dealers Association conference in New Orleans? Not much, particularly to Charles Woods and Patricia Smith, parents of Ty Woods and Sean Smith, respectively, two of the four Americans murdered by al-Qaida-affiliated terrorists in an attack Clinton blamed on a video. Clinton expressed...

    Sen. Ted Cruz on Monday issued a sharp retort to comments made by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on the Benghazi embassy attack in 2012: “Talk is cheap.” “The pattern with Hillary and the pattern with President Obama is virtually the same,” Cruz (R-Texas) told Gretchen Carlson on Fox News. “Hillary Clinton today apparently says she regrets that four brave Americans lost their lives; that we lost the first ambassador in active duty since 1979. But at the same time, she doesn’t want to do anything to fix it.” “Talk is cheap. She needs to stand up and demand...
