My blood is boiling today as I read report after report regarding the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The constant prevarications flowing forth from the Obama Administration denying any complicity in the Libyan fiasco is outrageous and mind-numbing. The lies just keep piling up–deception in full-gear. What does one say to people who would use a horrific attack on U.S. soil as a springboard to further their own diabolical political goals? What do you say to such a reprobate mind? Obviously, such individuals are without conscience or empathy for real human suffering.
Could you imagine being on the ground in Libya like Ambassador Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Tyrone Woods and Sean Smith were knowing what was coming? No! Most of us can’t imagine it. Doherty and Woods, both former Navy SEAL’s, were engaged in a running firefight with the enemy for a couple of hours, according to reports. They were ultimately cornered in a safehouse compound called the “Annex” and received accurate fire from mortars and were both killed. Jennifer Griffin of FOX News reported that the machine gun Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were manning on a rooftop position was caked in blood–both were hit, but they kept fighting until the bitter end. What a terrible thing for these two brave fallen warriors to know that no one would come to their aid … dying like a caged animal in a forlorn hellhole like Libya!
G-d rest their souls. This must not go unanswered. We owe it to them.
There were repeated attempts by Ambassador Stevens for increased security for the Consulate in Benghazi–all rebuffed by the powers-that-be. Additionally, there had been numerous terrorist attacks prior to the attack on the U.S. Consulate–even the Red Cross pulled out of the area. Yet nothing was done to protect our diplomatic personnel–quite the opposite. In an effort to appear “less threatening,” the administration discouraged and forbade a strong security presence at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Our embassy in Paris, France, is much more heavily-defended than the U.S. Consulate was in Libya. Astonishing.
Reports are circulating claiming a drone was circling above and was witnessing the attack in real-time. Typically, drones are armed with two Hellfire missiles–obviously, these weapons were never employed. Now, Fox News is reporting an AC-130U Spectre gunship was on-station, but the Obama Administration refused to let it fire on the enemy:
The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours — enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
All of this evidence is damning enough, but the vain arrogance and hubris Obama and his Administration are displaying in response to the murder of our diplomats in Libya is beyond shocking … it is criminal. And the criminality of this whole affair does not end with the criminal negligence of failing to provide adequate security for our personnel in Libya; it also extends extends to the actions taken by administration as a result of blaming an obscure and bizarre little YouTube video produced by a very, very murky character.
The feds dragged in the producer of the “Innocence of Muslims” film in order to investigate the man for possible parole violations. Apparently he was nailed on a technicality. He is still being detained. It is being reported he will not be released until three days after the election.
A number of people have asked why Obama sent out UN Ambassador Susan Rice to claim a YouTube video was to blame for all the chaos and violence popping up across the globe simultaneously, despite numerous reports the Benghazi attack was preplanned and occurred on the anniversary of Sept. 11.
My theory is Obama saw the Libyan debacle as another “good crisis” that shouldn’t go to waste. By manufacturing the meme a video was to blame, and by sending out a UN Ambassador to pass it along, Obama was able to kill two birds with one stone. Firstly, he can nudge the U.S. toward ceding national sovereignty over to the auspices of the United Nations sans the U.S. Constitution; secondly, by attempting to place U.S. sovereignty under UN authority, Obama can nudge the U.S. under the dominion of the UN’s Blasphemy Law, which would outlaw insulting Islam–more than likely. So it’s double-whammy for Obama: curtail the First Amendment (free speech) and condition the populace to accept the notion of U.S. sovereignty conceding to UN authority–a trans-national America.
More than likely, as others have stated, Obama desired to make the attack on the U.S. Consulate appear as a spontaneous protest in order to bolster the perception he alone had crushed al-Qaeda by killing Osama Bin Laden–the War on Terror (i.e. “workplace violence”) was finished, so to speak. But the choice of sending out a UN ambassador to forward the claim that the attack on Benghazi was just a knee-jerk reaction to an obscure video is quite revealing as to its intent and purpose–cede national sovereignty to the United Nations.
It is exasperating watching folks like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton (and their minions in the press) claim over and over again the attack on our Consulate in Libya was spontaneous–a direct result of an “offensive” video, while at the same time claiming they declared it a “terrorist attack” on day one when confronted with the question at the second presidential debate. I call that pathological and diabolical.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even infuriated the father of fallen Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods at his son’s funeral by telling him, “We’re going to arrest the man that made the film.” Wow! That should really comfort the father of a dead American hero who was killed as a direct result of the disastrous foreign policy and subterfuge of a rogue administration. How comforting it must be for Mr. Powers to realize that not only is his son dead, but Americans are having their First Amendment rights trampled on in the process.
Bottomline: Obama lied and our people died, period. This must not be allowed to be flushed down the memory hole. We owe it these brave Americans who gave their lives to save the lives of others.
