I am still steamed over the AQIM (al Qaeda) (*& Ansar al-Sharia) terrorist attack (act of WAR) on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11th, 2012, and the deaths of four Americans, including our ambassador, and the Obama administration’s blatant lies and cover-up of what transpired there, and further how they could have prevented it from happening, and even further the lack of any response. How this blood letting is not of primary concern to the electorate is entirely beyond my understanding.
Thought I’d compile my various ventings on the subject here in one place, for whatever reason, adding a link or two. I have no illusion that someone might read all this, just doing because I feel like it.
Comments I’ve made on twitter are followed by an “@“ link if you’re so inclined.

Why was the prefabricated “video motive”, which likely took hours to prepare, provided to the AP by the State Department, 15-30 minutes before the killing of Americans was even finished in Benghazi? And note that 2 hours in to the 7-hours siege, the White House was told it was a terrorist attack, not a protest.PROOF BENGHAZI WAS MURDER OF STEVENS BY REGIME ~Ann Barnhardt, 01.09.2013 Clinton Publicly Linked Benghazi to Video Before Woods and Doherty Were Killed ~Terence P.

points from the article:
The Middle East is rapidly unifying behind sharia – sharia is totalitarian government wholesale opposed American freedom and liberty – current U.S. policy is making the world safe for (not from) sharia – Obama’s soft spot for sharia may have gotten our guys killed in Benghazi – the Obama Admin. has been engaging, legitimating, enriching, emboldening, and arming Islamists – ”Uncle Sam has joined the jihad” – Obama in Cairo told the world it was his job as president to “fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.” – Obama recently told the U.N.: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.” – ”A leader who will betray the First Amendment will betray anything.” – The left-wing mainstream media has always protected the underbelly of communism, now it’s protecting the underbelly of totalitarian sharia and its friend Barack Hussein Obama.
*The only movement I know in these last ten days is that ex-CIA director Petraeus testified before Congress Friday (closed door), saying that the CIA issued a report after the 09.11 Benghazi attacks stating that, in fact, the attacks were at the hands of terrorists, not a mob pissed about a video. He also said that his report was edited by those higher up than him to remove references to terrorists.
This just confirms what we already knew. Obama LIED through his teeth from day one, Rice LIED, Carney LIED, and Obama and Hillary LIED to the face of family members, over the coffins of those killed, all just to protect O’s sorry ass in an election season.
Sadly, a part of me thinks that if this Obama had told the truth from the start, exposing his other LIE that he killed Al Qaeda, he might well have gotten re-elected anyway.

**IS THIS WHY CIA CHIEF REALLY RESIGNED? Gun running to jihadists could dwarf ‘Fast and Furious’ scandal by Aaron Klein, WND, 11.10.12
**CIA Director David Petraeus resigned Friday 11.09.12 (3 days after the Presidential election), citing an extramarital affair for the reason. The CIA annex in Benghazi was where former SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty were killed by mortar fire from terrorists. It was reported 10.26 that the CIA chain of command denied these men military backup during the firefight, and earlier ordered Ty to “stand down” rather than defend the nearby U.S. Consulate that was under attack.
Petraeus denied this 10.26: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”
Prior to this “resignation”, Petraeus was set to testify in Congressional hearings next week on the Benghazi matter.
The timing and reasoning here are absolutely and obviously suspect. That a man of such stature and respect ends his career this way, on the heels of the Benghazi scandal, waiting until after his boss Obama’s election to do so, but before he was set to testify, is simply unbelievable, and the truth is far afield of any affair.
Prior to heading the CIA, General Petreaus led the successful surge in the Iraq war, had a distinguished military career, and was considered a hero.

One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.
Obama’s perfect storm: Libya cover-up threatens re-election Frank R. Gaffney, Jr. 10.29.12 “Gunrunning to our enemies” just wouldn’t look good, you know. @ **11.01.12
It remains to be seen, however, if Frankenstorm Sandy will do more than simply defer the day of reckoning for Mr. Obama. Whether it occurs on Nov. 6 or afterward, the rising popular revulsion at what happened in Libya on Sept. 11, 2012, and the Obama administration’s dissembling, deflections and outright lies in the weeks that followed should blow this presidency away.
What was important enough to prompt our top diplomat in Libya to make such a dangerous foray? It seems the ambassador felt compelled to meet with the Turkish consul general that evening for the purpose of damage-limitation following the compromise of the secret weapons pipeline Mr. Stevens was then running to Syria. By some accounts, the Russians, Iranians and others had discovered that he was covertly providing automatic weapons, rocket-propelled grenades and even shoulder-fired, man-portable anti-aircraft missiles to “the opposition” there, including known jihadists associated with the Muslim Brotherhood and al Qaeda.
The revelation that Mr. Obama was presiding over an operation involving gunrunning to our enemies — including weapons virtually certain to be turned against us, later if not sooner — could have been fatal to his re-election bid. Consider that a serious U.S. military response to the violence in Benghazi would provide ample evidence of the fatuousness and mendacity of the administration’s Arab Spring and “lead-from-behind” in Libya narratives. Toss in, too, Mr. Obama’s refusal to act to save American lives, and you have a perfect storm for a president.
In the crisis, Mr. Obama was evidently paralyzed — not decisive and certainly not courageous. Regrettably, the loss of four of our countrymen that fateful night and the cover-up that followed will come to be seen by history as simply the leitmotif (dominant recurring theme) of a commander in chief whose record is a virtually unmitigated disaster for the United States.

SHARE~> Bracken: Did Obama Withhold Cross-Border Authority? No one has COULD have! #Benghazi h/t @AnnBarnhardt @ *10.30.12
Please help me. I am trying as hard as I can to get out the word about cross-border authority (CBA).
I just can’t believe reporters don’t know enough to ask the right questions! It’s infuriating.
Libya, as far as standing down the rescue, is 100% Obama’s show, and nobody else’s.Only he can grant CBA, not Biden, not Panetta, not Dempsey, not Hillary, and certainly not Ham in Germany.
The entire episode is explained perfectly inside the context of not granting CBA. The CIA QRF in Tripoli? No problem, send them on the local Tripoli station chief’s say-so. He merely informs up COC that he has done so. CCs them so to speak. “This is what I am doing.” Ditto if Predators were in country, no problem using them.
But the big rescue air armada streaming toward Libya right away after the alarm got to Stuttgart and Africom? That has to stop. I believe at the 5pm meeting with Panetta and Biden in the Oval Office, he said, “No outside military intervention,” on the basis that the last report was the “lull” from the consulate, at about 1030 p.m. in Benghazi, when the attack appeared to be over and the situation stabilizing.
…“Hold in place, no rescue yet. We can’t find the President, it sounds like,” say the colonels to the majors and captains. 100s of military must know about this. I keep waiting for the conclusive whistle-blowers to come forward BEFORE the election. After won’t matter, it will be for the historians.
I can’t believe cross-border authority permission is not one of the top discussion points about Benghazi.
That, and who “set him up” by sending him to Beghazi to meet the Turks on 9-11, with them leaving after dark.
And of course, down the road, was the military rescue-in-progress turned back because Obama actually wanted to make sure the consulate was wiped out? Is that why the spooks at the annex were refused permission to travel the under one mile to intervene? That would connect it all together, but for now, the best focus is on Obama either granting or withholding cross-border authority for the rescue.

1) “To whom did you issue this first directive and how was this directive communicated to the military and other agencies–verbally or in writing?“
2) “At any time on September 11, 2012, did you specifically direct the military to move available assets into Libya to ensure the safety of U.S. personnel in Benghazi? If so, which assets did you order to Libya?
3) “At any time on September 11, 2012, other than ISR assets, did you provide the authority for the military to take any and all necessary measures to secure U.S. personnel, including specifically the authority to enter Libyan airspace?
4) “Did you have any communication with the Secretary of Defense, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, or any Commanders of regional Combatant Commands regarding military support to U.S. personnel in Benghazi on September 11th? If so could you please describe any recommendations provided to you regarding available military support and any orders you gave them?”

I agree completely with the sentiment. However, it’s my assertion that the real real Libya scandal is that an American citizen was singled out and scapegoated and now sits in jail — even though the federal government at its highest levels knew this man to be innocent of the charges they were leveling against him not just for national consumption but for international consumption, running ads in Pakistan apologizing for our First Amendment, not responding to a bounty put on the filmmaker’s head by a Pakistan government official, sending out conciliatory Tweets from embassy staff later defended by the Secretary of State — who herself stood over the coffins of those who’d asked for added security, which she and the Administration had denied, and laid the blame for what was,graphically and utterly, a colossal performative repudiation of the entire foreign policy strategy of this dismal Administration, at the feet of a Youtube video clip and the American who, in producing it, had violated sharia blasphemy laws and was subsequently targeted for death by those we can’t call terrorists. For fear of riling them up.
It is, in a word, staggering. And in fact, if we knew where this amateur filmmaker was being held, and had we any sense of decency, we’d be protesting outside the facility demanding his release (forget the bullshit about probation violations), if not overrunning the public spaces inside the facility and staging a sit in of sorts. You like Kent State, progressives? [...]
We are well past the point of no return. The contemporary left is not the opposition party in a constitutional republic. It is an organized group of well-funded transnational progressivists waging a coup.
