More Benghazi Details; More Left-Wing Obfuscation

The New York Times has an in-depth report on the Benghazi incident from a reporter who went there and interviewed dozens of people on the ground. Quick summary:

Fifteen months after Mr. Stevens’s death, the question of responsibility remains a searing issue in Washington, framed by two contradictory story lines.

One has it that the video, which was posted on YouTube, inspired spontaneous street protests that got out of hand. This version, based on early

Benghazi Report Withdrawn

60 Minutes has now withdrawn the Benghazi report I blogged on after information came out that “Morgan Jones” gave conflicting statements about what happened that night.

I must say that “Jones” crossed me as a bit unreliable, especially his story about fighting off a militant, which sounded like bullshit. However, his testimony was only part of what has been uncovered. The fact remains that many other witness support the contention that our security at Benghazi … Read more

60 Minutes Discovers Benghazi

Sixty minutes is about a year late and a billion dollars short on this, but you should watch this video that basically destroys the White House’s long-debunked contention that the Benghazi attack could not have been foreseen. Several witnesses have now gone public with what they saw in the months and weeks leading up to the attack that night. Al-Qaeda has stated their intention to launch three attacks and carried out two of them. Al-Qaeda … Read more

The Usual Suspects

This is a strange story:

The U.S. has identified five men who might be responsible for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year, and has enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists, officials say. But there isn’t enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

The men remain at large while the FBI gathers evidence. But the investigation has

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 … Read more

Good and Bad from the Benghazi Hearing

Well, we’re getting more and more info out of the Benghazi hearings. First, the bad. The testimony from Panetta yesterday indicated that, after being informed of the attack, Obama gave him and Dempsey full authority to do what what was necessary. And then … well, they did stuff, which I’ll get to in a moment. But the President didn’t call back or drop in or text or anything. I’m not going to suppose to … Read more

Hillary Testifies

Well, the conspiracy theorists were wrong again. As predicted, Hillary Clinton did indeed testify to Congress yesterday. There was plenty of grand-standing on both sides and yet more irrelevant focus on what Susan Rice said after the incident. To me, the most important part was this:

Rep. Michael McCaul, R-Texas, asked Clinton this afternoon why her office had not responded to a notification from Stevens about potential dangers in Libya.

“Congressman, that cable did not

The First Benghazi Report

I know that everyone is shocked shocked that the first independent report on the Benghazi debacle sharply criticized the State Department. Most of the criticism is expected: not enough guards, too much reliance on local militias, ignoring requests for safety upgrades, failure to coordinate between Diplomatic Security and Near Eastern Affairs. But what jumped out at me was this:

The panel blamed American intelligence officials for relying too much on specific warnings of imminent attacks,

Petraeus Quits: Cites Unauthorized Surge into Unknown Woman

Alright, he appears to have forgotten that he’s working for a Democratic Administration, so I don’t know why he felt that he had to resign.

I’ve seen some murmurings that there may have been something else to this. Me personally, I don’t see a lead here. He failed to follow the First Law of Having an Affair: Shut. Up. This just appears to be something a guy like Petraeus would do when he’s done something … Read more

The Plot Thickens in Benghazi

Hmmm:

U.S. intelligence officials, speaking on a not-for-attribution basis, provided reporters Thursday with the most detailed explanation yet of the CIA’s presence in Benghazi, Libya, and the agency’s response to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, while also identifying the two former Navy SEALs killed that night as being employed by the CIA.

But some news organizations, including the Associated Press, The New York Times and The Washington Post, already knew that the two former
