The intensity of the Obama administration's participation in this cover-up became clear in May 2012. At that time, Congress had placed a clause inside the Defense Appropriations Act requiring the Pentagon to award Purple Hearts to Ft. Hood's victims. Rather than accept this eminently reasonable demand, which simply required the administration to acknowledge reality, Obama's emissaries announced he would veto the appropriations bill and so leave the Pentagon without a budget unless the clause was removed.
THE SAME is the case with regards to the September 11, 2012, attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi. Already on the day of the attack, it was apparent that the US mission and the CIA annex had been targeted in a premeditated, preplanned attack. Footage of the attack broadcast in real time showed armed men attacking the consulate with rocket-propelled grenades. It was not an act of savage mob violence. Mobs do not carry RPGs or act in a coordinated manner. That is, already at the time of the attack it was apparent that it was not a spontaneous protest in response to an anti-Islamic video on YouTube.
Speaking of the frequent US failures in understanding events in faraway lands, Winston Churchill famously quipped, "We can always count on the Americans to do the right thing, after they have exhausted all the other possibilities."
Obama will not change course. He doesn't have to. So long as he maintains faith with the god of appeasement, the US media will protect him. And so long as they protect him, he will pay no price for his failures. So he will repeat them.

Instead, the undocumented Obama protects, defends, and arms terrorists.
Moral Hazard has moved from big finance to big government or is it vice versa.
when success has no reward.
More and more to be a 'success' it seems you have to render obeisance to the government [in the form of regulations and/or PC behavior].
Obama will not change course.
Of course he won’t; he’s a leftist. When a liberal (aka commie, facist, socialist) is wrong it is NEVER because they had a bad idea. The problem is ALWAYS because they didn’t do it enough.
Our military needs to look to Egypt for an example of what to do at this point, since our congress lacks the testicles to do their duty. They don’t want to be called Raaaaaaaaaaaaaaacists
obama has never paid any price whatsoever for the rivers of blood he has created anywhere from Afghanistan, to Mexico, Honduras, Benghazi, Iraq, Egypt, Libya in whole, Syria...and the list continues...and so does he. The death cult he worships marches on.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Oh, there’s payment....WE’RE the ones paying for it.
Exactly right. And that is why this quote is on my profile page:
In keeping silent about evil, in burying it so deep within us that no sign of it appears on the surface, we are implanting it, and it will rise up a thousand fold in the future. When we neither punish nor reproach evildoers, we are not simply protecting their trivial old age, we are thereby ripping the foundations of justice from beneath new generations.
Gradually it was disclosed to me that the line separating good and evil passes not through states, nor between classes, nor between political parties either — but right through every human heart — and through all human hearts. This line shifts. Inside us, it oscillates with the years. And even within hearts overwhelmed by evil, one small bridgehead of good is retained. And even in the best of all hearts, there remains ... an unuprooted small corner of evil.
Since then I have come to understand the truth of all the religions of the world: They struggle with the evil inside a human being (inside every human being). It is impossible to expel evil from the world in its entirety, but it is possible to constrict it within each person.

I guess enemies of Islam can’t be heroes.
So many items like this that the public was ignorant of in 2012. Why wasn’t the Romney campaign or an independent group (like the Swift Boat veterans in 2004) making TV ads to bring this and other scandals to public attention when it might have done some good?
But do not despair, My FRiend, because like all Communists [Socialists] coups, very few of those who instigated said coups survive 10 years. And even fewer of those die peacefully in bed.
Thanks LSUfan. Additional:
I guess what she is saying,what the hell do you do when the entire police,government,judicial systems are corrupt?
That’s where we are
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
