Tag: Benghazi-gate

I think I figured out…

The differed between a dangerous and stupid cowboy-esque president, like, say GWB, and any much more enlightened man-of-the-world Nobel Peace prize holders, like, say Obama, and it was not that hard. All it took was the recent Bergdahl incident and things like this. And you know what it is? The leftist love the process and pretense of following the law. Yes, I said “pretense of following the law”, and I meant it.

This whole ordeal smacks of Holder’s promise that if the rubes in congress where but to allow the Gitmo inmates to be tried in civilian court, they all would end up with guilty verdicts and life in prison. You only make such promises if you have a kangaroo court proceeding with a predetermined outcome. Then again, I could be mistaken and unjustly accusing Holder of presiding over a DOJ that enforces the law willy-nilly, considering the guy is such an expert liar that everything he says should be taken as possibly some sort of word play on the truth. Who knows. When you deal with people that believe their moral conviction puts them and those like them above the law, anything goes.

I expect this WH to tout this as a great success – they need a new diversion from the previous chain of diversions they tried subsequently to use as people found out how bad they were behaving and each went sour – but I also expect it to blow up in their face. These idiots are desperate to keep their criminal activities under wrap, which is why we keep getting story after story to move people along from one scandalous revelation to another. I guess the plan is to cause scandal fatigue or something.

Anyway, you ask how in the world I think this can go wrong? After all, they are going to have a pretend court hearing and the guy is being held by Obama, which means that he will not be tortured or held indefinitely like evil Boosh di. In fact, I see a future trade for another deserter cum enemy sympathizer in his future. That is, if this dude can be kept from spilling the beans about what really went on at Benghazi. Maybe we should give Holder what he once wanted, and have this guy transferred from military jurisdiction to civilian court. At least it would be somewhat easier for us to get the facts from the alternative media (the LSM would not dream of giving us the truth of what happened if it hurts demcorats as we all suspect it will turn out to be the case).

Abu Khattala, who was captured Sunday on the outskirts of Benghazi by U.S. special operations forces, was headed to the United States to face what President Obama called “the full weight of the American justice system.”

The Benghazi attacks, and the Obama administration’s conduct in the aftermath, have long been a source of festering political discord. And some Republicans on Capitol Hill were quick to voice skepticism about the administration’s plans to try Abu Khattala like a civilian.

What are the chances this guy just happens to choke on his hallal falafel and never gets to tell us what happened, huh? After all, they don’t want to send these guys to Gitmo anymore. I bet there is a prisoner swap in the work soon. Maybe for Jane Fonda. We should get her back from Hanoi.

CIA working overtime to cover up what happened in Benghazi

Well, I can’t say I am surprised to find out that the CIA is one of the primary agents in trying to hide what was going on in Benghazi, and I think it is not hard to figure out why the WH is helping them out. from the article:

Sources now tell CNN dozens of people working for the CIA were on the ground that night, and that the agency is going to great lengths to make sure whatever it was doing, remains a secret.

CNN has learned the CIA is involved in what one source calls an unprecedented attempt to keep the spy agency’s Benghazi secrets from ever leaking out.

Since January, some CIA operatives involved in the agency’s missions in Libya, have been subjected to frequent, even monthly polygraph examinations, according to a source with deep inside knowledge of the agency’s workings.

The goal of the questioning, according to sources, is to find out if anyone is talking to the media or Congress.

It is being described as pure intimidation, with the threat that any unauthorized CIA employee who leaks information could face the end of his or her career.

In exclusive communications obtained by CNN, one insider writes, “You don’t jeopardize yourself, you jeopardize your family as well.”

Another says, “You have no idea the amount of pressure being brought to bear on anyone with knowledge of this operation.”

“Agency employees typically are polygraphed every three to four years. Never more than that,” said former CIA operative and CNN analyst Robert Baer.

In other words, the rate of the kind of polygraphs alleged by sources is rare.

“If somebody is being polygraphed every month, or every two months it’s called an issue polygraph, and that means that the polygraph division suspects something, or they’re looking for something, or they’re on a fishing expedition. But it’s absolutely not routine at all to be polygraphed monthly, or bi-monthly,” said Baer.

I am now convinced they were running a secret prison there and/or involved in negotiations to, or actually in the process of, transferring weapons to the Syrian resistance, under orders from the WH. That’s what is behind the need to keep their people from talking both to the media and congress is to make sure we the people don’t find out about that.

What was going on was illegal, sanctioned from the WH – they would have thrown the CIA under the bus otherwise by now – and would seriously undermine Obama and the donkeys. That’s why they are able to keep this hidden: it benefits the WH to make it so. CNN hopes that what people take away from this story is that it is about National Security, and hence, it is OK now if we never find out what happened. What everyone should be able to figure out, as should the CNN reporters if their head was not so far up Obama’s ass, is that their excuse making is bogus. Something illegal, and likely very bad, was going on. And if someone other than black Jesus was in the WH, they would have done just that.

But hey, this is not a scandal. Nothing to see here!

This allegation better turn out to be bullshit, or else…

The Weekly Standard has this insane post claiming that “Congressman Frank Wolf, a Republican from Virginia, said today on the House floor that survivors of the Benghazi terror attack have been forced to sign non-disclosure agreements“. WTF? They, meaning the Hillary Clinton State Department, the Holder DOJ, Big Sis’s former DHS, the Obama WH, or a combination of any of these, made survivors of Benghazi sign NDAs? More information;

“According to trusted sources that have contacted my office, many if not all of the survivors of the Benghazi attacks along with others at the Department of Defense, the CIA have been asked or directed to sign additional non-disclosure agreements about their involvement in the Benghazi attacks. Some of these new NDAs, as they call them, I have been told were signed as recently as this summer.”

Wolf continued: “It is worth nothing that the Marine Corps Times yesterday reported that the Marine colonel whose task force was responsible for special operations in northern and western Africa at the time of the attack is still on active duty despite claims that he retired. And therefore could not be forced to testify before Congress.

This whole thing reeks of corruption and vileness, and yet, the LSM can’t be bothered. Look, I am not gonna rehash the whole despicable thing. All I will do is ask if anyone here doubts that the LSM would have crucified and forced the resignation or impeachment of the occupant of the WH if that person had a (R) next to their name for you to understand how criminally negligent they are about pursuing this story.

This stuff is frightening to me. Why the need for secrecy? What were they doing that they expect will cause so much trouble for them? And please spare me the national security angle. These fucks have divulged real intel that put people’s lives at risk and compromised national security at the drop of a hat, on numerous occasions, before, whenever it benefited them politically. In fact, they do or don’t do things solely based on political consequences. So whatever they need to keep secret about Benghazi is political. And a complicit media is helping them hide the fact they allowed an ambassador and 3 others to be murdered, and act of war, to cover up whatever it was they felt would hurt them politically. These people are beyond vile, I tell you.

I am sure that it is the conspiracy theorist in me.. (UPDATED)

That makes me feel that there definitely was an orchestrated high level cover-up operation, led from the WH of all places, which included the usual willing leftard sheeple in the LSM, to help them hide the disastrous happenings in Benghazi, and when we hear how the WH is actively threatening anyone with dire consequences should they choose to ignore that WH directive to keep quiet, it is all bunk. What the hey! These crooks currently running the country would never do anything like that. Can’t be true.

Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.

“I’m not talking generally, I’m talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”

Toensing declined to name her client. She also refused to say whether the individual was on the ground in Benghazi on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when terrorist attacks on two U.S. installations in the Libyan city killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.

“It’s frightening, and they’re doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we’re going to kill you,’ or not ‘we’re going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they’re taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

Yeah, well we were pointing out that the WH strategy from the start, and remember this happened close enough to the 2012 election that had the facts come out it would have mattered, was to silence anyone that had the facts. Even Snopes, which does its best to provide the scumbags in the WH with cover on this story, admits that they do not know why either theater commander was relieved, based on more cover-up from Panetta. Panetta had a vested interest in covering for this administration. But I digress.

The fact remains that the scumbags in the WH have been working overtime to keep the truth about Benghazi, regardless of if you believe it is trivial shit or actually horribly damning information about clandestine operations – operations that are far worse than any that the current administration and its party spend years excoriating the previous one about – like I suspect is the case, under wraps. That the people being called up by congress to testify are being threatened to “shut up, or else”, is exactly more of what I expected from these craven and despicable scumbags. They are trying to both provide the current “Community Organizer in Chief” and the candidate they hope follows him in 2016, Mrs. Rodham-Clinton, with cover from a botched incident that resulted in a US ambassador’s assassination.

I have a suspicion that once we do get the facts everyone that provided cover for them will pretend they didn’t do anything of the sort. Kind of like everyone on the left pretends these days that they were on Reagan’s side during the Cold War, and that they think he was courageous for standing up to the “Evil Empire”. Of course, those of us that lived through that period remember clearly how the left actively undermined any and all attempts to halt the evil red machine’s global attempts to spread the cancer of communism, making the US, and especially Reagan, the bad guy. I point out that we got a rear glimpse of their true feelings when the left’s mask and lies about how they were on the side against the “Evil Empire” was recently dropped when they put Thatcher to rest.

There is some serious rot here behind the Benghazi cover-up, but of course, the usual suspects will dismiss it as nothing but speculation, the facts be damned. Where there is smoke, there is fire.

UPDATE: If you had any doubt the WH was lying check this out:

A special operations member who witnessed the attack on the U.S. Mission unfold in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 last year, as well as debriefed those who took part in the response, spoke with Fox News’ Adam Housley on Monday night and revealed information that directly contradicts the administration’s insistence that there was not enough time nor resources to send to Benghazi to help State Department employees, contractors, and intel operatives who were under a terrorist attack. FNC kept their source’s identity hidden, as witnesses to the Benghazi attack have reportedly been intimidated by the administration into silence. The assault left four Americans dead, including U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens.

“I know for a fact that C110 was doing a training exercise not in the region of northern Africa but in Europe and they have the ability to react and respond,” the special ops member told FNC.

This operator was not the only one to make this case. Several other people have argued that help was available and that the commanders were sacked to keep them from testifying to that being the case. I am going out on a limb and betting the operation in Libya was something the WH was so desperate to keep under wraps that it blocked any help from going there so there would be no witnesses. Just look at the other shit they have done for proof these scumbags would allow others to die or try to profit from tragedy every given time.

Benghazi-gate update

The usual LSM outlets are reporting nonsense like CBS affiliate in DC which are trying to pretend that there is no stank to this whole fiasco. Yeah, Panetta, certainly isn’t doing CYA for the WH at all. Not everyone is playing along, though. Maybe it is because they are tired of getting thrown under that Obama bus. I already talked about the Clinton’s sticking it back to Barack for his attempt to throw Hillary under the bus, but now it seems that even
Patreaus at the CIA is punching back. After all Obama & his crew threw the Intel community under the bus during the debate and tried to shift the blame to them. But the truth will out even if the LSM is ignoring it:

Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”

So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.

It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?

Rumors are circulating about assets being on site and not being used because the WH ordered a stand down as well. But there is an even bigger rumor going around about how the commander of Africom, General Ham, was relieved from command because he refused to follow an order to stand down from the WH and was in the process of deploying assets despite the order. It is not coincidental that he is being replaced by a likely stooge:

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.

Gen. Ham is not the only one being relieved. I guess when relieved from command in this manner they are facing possible charges, and hence, will be told by their council to not comment publically. Win-win for the WH which just wants this to stay quiet until the election. After they steal that, Holder can make this go away for them, like he has done with so many other acts that far exceed anything Nixon did and got kicked out of office for.

This Benghazi-gate stuff is turning out to be uglier and uglier. Yes, a lot of this stuff is in the category of hearsay or unconfirmed, but I would trust hearsay or statements from these sources – yes, even the damned Clintons because those bastards are about survival at all costs and they know the LSM is not in their corner right now – over the lame cover-up by the LSM, any day of the week. This was an epic failure. I am now convinced that the WH ordered a stand down and that is the direct reason that these 4 people died. The problem is that we have a fifth column that has no interest in finding out, let alone telling the truth now, because it will screw up the guy they are rooting for, Obama, even harder next week.

UPDATE: Looks like the LSM has to adit that the removal of the admiral that was in charge of the Med group is because of the ongoing investigation. Of course, the fact that when relieved and under investigation this admiral silenced, is conveniently ignored.

For all the idiots that defended the lie that the WH didn’t know…

I knew that as soon as Team Obama chose to throw Hillary under the bus to cover their ass on their Benghazi fiasco, that this was going to come back to bite them. I expected this to happen after the election, to help Obama, but it looks like it didn’t even take that long for Hillary to burn Barack:

Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

This wasn’t an accidental leak: the Clintons play for keeps, after all. The Clintons smell an Obama defeat next week, despite the massive voter fraud I expect that will happen to try and steal the election for these bums, and they want to make sure Hillary is distanced from that failure, sooner rather than later.

And there you have it. As all of us sane people knew, the micromanagers in the WH didn’t only know about something that’s scandalous only to pretend they didn’t, but they are the ones directly behind the decision that cost 4 Americans, including the ambassador, their lives. This is not the first time we will find out they lied, not just about knowing what was going on, but about being behind the decision making, and all. Oh how I wish the Clintons had something to gain from exposing the WH’s role in Fast & Furious. We would finally get the truth about that too. I am sure all the appologists with egg on their face will pretend it isn’t there, though.

Don’t worry your purdy heads though lefties. This close to the election the LSM is going to play ostrich and ignore the story. They don’t want to hobble their lame horse any more than it has hobbled itself already, but the stupid and ineptness of Team Obama can not be saved even with the fifth column’s help. It’s neither accidental or coincidental that the only outlet reporting this is Fox News and the only other places you find that it is much worse than it seems is on non-leftoid blogs.
