Lara Logan and CBS 60 Minutes producer Max McClellan presented a feature on Benghazi last night. The opening sounds like the story is being taken seriously unless you consider that perhaps this isn’t being used to set the record straight, but to direct where the needle goes next. As of this report, the 60 Minute Record is skipping right over Clinton and the White House.
“The events of that night have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion and intense partisanship…” – Lara Logan, 60 Minutes: Benghazi Continue reading
It’s just under three weeks ago I updated on the Benghazi case. In that update, we had learned that Nakoula had granted an interview to the Daily Caller, witnesses and survivors were being hidden from Congress and that 400 surface to air missiles that were diverted to Libya were stolen by some ‘very ugly people’.
In the following update, I’ll cover the mainstream media finally denouncing the blame assigned to the YouTube video, the denial of one FOIA and information obtained from another, the pulling out of the investigative team in Benghazi and new meaning assigned to Hillary’s now famous outburt – What difference, at this point, does it make? Possibly a big one if the trail being abandoned leads back to Egypt. Continue reading
Earlier this month, I wrote an update covering the possibility survivors from Benghazi were being hidden or threatened and that there were dozens of CIA operatives on the ground the night of the attack. The White House, to date, has punted on whether or not witnesses were under duress, suffered threats or experiencing any retaliation.
Two weeks later, more bombshells have dropped including details from a whistleblower claiming 400 SAM’s (Surface to Air Missile) were at some point “diverted” to Libya and are now in the possession of ‘very ugly’ people. More on that later in the article. First, let’s look at other developments since my last installment that include Nakoula, charges filed and Victoria Nuland’s email accounts. Continue reading

“One thing is clear…there IS a Libya connection.”
The report goes right out and states up front: terror camps are all over Libya with direct ties to Al Qaeda. So much for Al Qaeda being dead, Mr. President. You haven’t dismantled anything, you’re “smart diplomacy” has actually revived terrorist groups in the Middle East and elsewhere.
“Libya is a lesson in what the international community can achieve and is a recipe for the future.”
Yeah, a lesson in how to get the weapons you need to carry out your plots, courtesy of this administration. All you’ll get is harsh condemnations from Panetta, and possibly a drone strike or ten, while this administration sends more weapons, financial “aid” and other goodies to arm more terrorists rebels in the region. Threats mean little when it was that easy to take out a U.S. consulate and kill 4 Americans in Libya. Drone strikes aren’t deterring, they’re ticking off these groups. Benghazi was clear proof of that. Al Qaeda isn’t backing down, they are energized.
Hillary Clinton is set to testify this week, assuming she doesn’t wipe out again. I’m sure her testimony will be less than enlightening and full of more buck passing.
“I was not personally aware of any request,” Obama said Friday, adding that there is an “infrastructure” in place to “manage requests.” – Source: Fox News
Hillary Clinton seems incapable of throwing Obama under his own bus. Perhaps I am underestimating her — after all, she is married to the Teflon President. Maybe she’ll actually give some useful information. Some questions Clinton should be asked, which may be redundant with other hearings to date, but are valid since no one has sufficiently answered them:
Where are the survivors? Why has the committee not been given access to them?
Why, after multiple requests, did you not reinforce the Benghazi consulate? We know Clinton requested it and Obama denied it. Hillary and Bill put together a legal team, so clearly some big piece in this picture is Hillary’s to play show and tell with.
Why was no additional support sent when the fighting broke out? Panetta’s statements on it are full of so much crap one could fertilize half of this country’s farms with it. Panetta claimed unclear early Info slowed Benghazi response. Panetta then said they ‘could not put forces at risk’. Panetta went further and stated that they had ‘no real time intel’. Yet, within the very hour hostilities began, a CIA team from Tripoli headed to Benghazi and those back in the White House Situation Room were watching events unravel live via drone. Sources say even the President was in attendance.
Why the lie about a YouTube Video being to blame? Who decided that was the official cover story? The average citizen watching this unfold could tell you this was not about a stupid YouTube trailer — especially not one that only had a hundred or so hits on the day protests broke out. The President, thirteen days later, continued to push this lie but not just on the American people — he did it in front of the U.N. in a globally televised speech. Let us not forget useful stooge, Susan Rice, in this lying either. Haven’t heard a peep about her since she sent her sob letter to the President. Come to think of it, Obama’s debate defender, Candy Crowley, has been silent as well.
Just a reminder of the lies and the liars headed into this week’s testimony:[youtube=http://youtu.be/uFf0dUH3OtU]
