What Obama is really hiding in Benghazi

What we think Obama is hiding in Benghazi is disgraceful executive conduct on September 11, 2012, which lead to the deaths of four Americans, including a United States Ambassador.  What Frank Gaffney thinks the administration is hiding is much worse:  gun-running.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

Well!  Does this mean that, if he gets re-elected in November, he gets impeached in December?  And does that mean VP Biden, who seems increasingly senile, suddenly becomes President Biden?  There’s no way to put a pretty face on things if Obama wins again.

    I just saw an Instapundit link to a devastating editorial-page attack against Obama in the Las Vegas Review-Journal. It is the most strongly worded condemnation of Obama’s lacks and lies that I’ve yet seen in a whore media newspaper. 
    Not all the wheels are going to come off the Obama Express between now and Tuesday, but the ones that are are wobbling and spinning spectacularly! Billows of black smoke!
    I love the smell of burning rubber in the morning!

    I always thought the Wun’s pick of Biden was a matter of self-preservation–people would think twice about getting rid of him just because we’d get stuck with the senile embarassment of Biden.

    Oddly, if Obama had dispatched assistance during the attack, they’d have a much better chance of keeping the gunrunning secret.

    “Disgrace” is way too soft a word to describe ‘Benghazigate’. Scandal doesn’t cut it either.
    Benghazigate is not just a cover-up of incompetence and bad decisions anymore, it seems. The US governement is covering up what is basically an anti-US operation – by the US government. Obama of course is a major part of this, but he’s not the only one for sure.
    Under the Obama administration, the US – it seems – has been systematically empowering, emboldening and arming the enemies of the US and the west, most visibly islamofascists and jihadists. It’s not just that the whole thing in Benghazi was handeled badly; it might very well be so the US abetted and enabled the evil criminals who killed the American citizens.
    Ambassador Stevens was apparently a tool in this whole anti-US process. Why was an American ambassador (or any American citizen) in the islamic hellhole to begin with? It also seems he wasn’t properly protected, and the thugs who murdered the ambassador were possibly armed or aided by the US government. As Hillbuzz suggests, Steven might also have been a pawn in Obama’s ideological and political game, together with and on top of the support given to enemies of the west. Certainly Obama has politicized what happened in a despicable way.
    Obama really is an anti-US president. He is a muslim thug-in-chief aiding jihadists and doing everything anti-US and anti-west he can. He hates America, he hates the west, he hates what are supposed to be his citizens, and is willing to go basically any length to act upon this.
    That man needs to be voted out of office. If he gets re-elected, we better prepare to enjoy ourselves and live our lives the way we want to while we can, before things go to hell and we may be subjugated or killed. Some heads need to roll.
    Disgusting. Despicable.

    Why, like Hercule Poirot, does it take a Belgian to recognize the obvious that so many others cannot?



    The drip…drip…drip has begun  http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57544026/sources-key-task-force-not-convened-during-benghazi-consulate-attack/?tag=cbsnewsHardNewsFDArea;fdmodule Unfortunately, it’s competing with a flood, fuel/food shortages and a fire.  If, and it’s a big “if” the MSM finally opens the spigot they’ll have to lead with “Breaking News Bulletins” at 6 and 11 in extra large font. In the meantime and all the time, the POS is not taking any questions and Gen. Carter Ham has been scurried off to places unknown. I don’t expect the whore-media to go full metal jacket. My issue is with the paid prostitutes in DC – Where the hell have Boehner and McConnell been since September 11, 2012. No press conferences, no shouting from the rafters, nothing, zip, zilch and zero. Oh, did I mention that I am just a tad cranky.

    This all puts the ambassador in a bit of a different light, doesn’t it?
    Karma can be a real bitch…..and it looks like Stevens may have got bitten.
    Resigning on principle never looked so good!!
    Or am I making too much of this story?


    Danny, speaking of Mr. Poirot or Don Frederick, who “just happened” to connect the dots….


    “As I noted in the introduction to my book, The Obama Timeline, a jury at a murder trial will often find the accumulated circumstantial evidence so overwhelming that a guilty verdict is obvious— even though there may be no witness to the crime. “The jurors in the Scott Peterson trial believed the collection of evidence more than they believed Scott Peterson. Among other things, the jury thought that being arrested with $15,000 in cash, recently-dyed hair, a newly-grown goatee, four cell phones, camping equipment, a map to a new girlfriend’s house, a gun, and his brother’s driver’s license certainly did not paint a picture of a grieving husband who had nothing to do with his pregnant wife’s disappearance and murder.”

    In the four years I have been gathering information about—and evidence
    against—Barack Hussein Obama, I have encountered hundreds of coincidences that strike me as amazing. None of those coincidences, by themselves, may mean much. But taken as a whole it is almost impossible to believe they were all the result of chance. ”

    It’s not clear to me that Obama seeks to *destroy* the USA.  It does seem clear to me that he seeks to diminish us.
    Obama is certain that the USA is both too powerful and is harmful to the rest of the world.  But I don’t know that he actively hates the USA to the point of actually seeking its destruction.

    When Obama says – and he DOES day it – that he sees America is just one nation among all nations, I believe he is telling the truth.  And that is the America that he wishes to create.  He will continue to diminish us if he survives re-election.  That is his active goal.  If you view attempts to diminish America as being harmful – as I do – then, yes, you can agree with me that Obama does actively wish to harm America.

    Benghazi is on the coast of a large region of Libya that is directly under  terrorist control, not under the control of the Libyan government.  Our embassy’s repeated requests for security were denied.  We were left essentially defenseless there for months, and then the attack came.  Was this coordinated by Obama so that he could ride to the rescue in mid-October, exchanging the blind Sheik for the captured hostage Ambassador Stevens?  Stevens died of smoke inhalation, I believe; he was not deliberately murdered by the invaders.  Was this a nefarious Obama plot gone wrong?  That would certainly explain the orders across the region to “stand down”.  Never in the history of  the USA have such “stand down” orders been transmitted before…

    There’s a lot of smoke, and you know what they say, where there’s smoke…

    Well, it is going to be terribly sad if this doesn’t break through the media veil until after 11/6.
    I can hardly bear to contemplate a re-run of those two TV super-buffoons, Tom Brokaw and Charlie Rose chatting after the 2008 election and ruminating that “we really don’t know Obama do we?”.  They should have been sued for taking their obscene pay under false pretenses all during Obama’s two year run for the Presidency.  Maybe hung for treason as it turns out.
    I just don’t know how you construct an understandable (has to be simple) narrative and get it before the people in the next five days.   We would need a Petraeus, or someone of that stature, to go public.  I have come to think that he has been co-opted.

     I do not know they were engaged in gunrunning or simply not sharp enough to keep the flow of Daffi’s weapons from going to the bad guys. What is just as likely is that they refused to help because by sending help they’d have to admit that AlQ and the rest of the baddies is alive and well and growing in strength, And that would scupper their GM is alive and Bin Laden dead meme. And since that is the only thing they have to run on, there goes the ball game.
     Oh, and GM isn’t looking so hot and Fiat is moving huge chunks of Chrysler overseas. I really think Obama could break an anvil with a feather duster.

    “Sadder but wiser from his foolish attempt to create a crisis-not-to-waste by supplying assault rifles to Mexican drug lords, Obama demonstrated how much he had grown in office by then arranging to supply Al Qaeda with surface-to-air missile launchers…”
    Obviously, the Satire Industrial Complex is another American industry targeted for crowding-out by this administration, ’cause you just couldn’t make this stuff up.  I knew this was going to be a really, really, really bad four years, but — crikey!  Where’s that Pink Floyd soundtrack when you need it?

    Evil is as evil does. The Left was being very truthful when it came to their description of Bush’s regime. They were just being truthful about themselves.

    You can’t be in disgrace until you’ve had some grace, Book. And I don’t think that applies to evil death cult worshiping hooligans in the White House. Which may apply to 90% of the fed bureaucracy, but still.
