#Benghazi: Proof of what we knew — the White House is full of lying suckweasels

Posted by: Phineas on April 30, 2014 at 4:54 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas So, more than 19 months after four Americans –including our ambassador– died at the hands of al Qaeda allies in an attack on our consulate in Benghazi, part of the truth finally comes out: the White House political operation used the story of  a video to protect President Obama reelection, sacrificing the truth, our […]

**Posted by Phineas There’s breaking news tonight that four Americans, likely military, are in the custody of the Libyan government, having been taken during a visit to the Roman ruins at Sabratha.

**Posted by Phineas Oh, this is interesting: Marine Corps Col. George Bristol was in a key position in the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) chain of command the night of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. As such, he’s high on the list of people that some Republican members of […]

Posted by: Phineas on February 16, 2013 at 5:03 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas One of your embassies is under attack, your ambassador and other Americans  are in grave danger, and forces you’ve sent to their aid are held up at the local airport in a turf dispute. So, what do you do? Do you pick up the phone and call the leader of the host […]

 

Benghazi Consulate Massacre: the deaths are real, the punishments were fake.

Posted by: Phineas on December 27, 2012 at 8:01 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas This is just outrageous. Four Americans died in Benghazi and the people held accountable for it in the official review whitewash, who supposedly were forced to resign, were instead just given a timeout: The four officials supposedly out of jobs because of their blunders in the run-up to the deadly Benghazi terror attack […]

Posted by: Phineas on November 5, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas One of the enduring mysteries of the Benghazi massacre is the lack of any serious attempt to render assistance to those trapped in the consulate and the CIA annex building. We know the resources were available at Sigonella Naval Air Station in Sicily, one to two hours away by air. We know […]

**Posted by Phineas Well, there goes Obama and Biden’s insistence that they never knew our diplomatic mission in Libya was worried about security in Benghazi before the terrorist attack of September 11th: The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three […]

 

Benghazi Consulate Massacre: pushback for Petraeus, and what’s important

**Posted by Phineas In an earlier post, I quoted news reports that called into question the role General David Petraeus, the CIA director, regarding his analysis of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi. Since then, PJM’s Bryan Preston published information that speaks in Petraeus’ defense: A U.S. intelligence official disputed the characterization of Petraeus’ […]

 

Benghazi Consulate Massacre: lawmakers briefed on al Qaeda role two days after the attack

Posted by: Phineas on October 29, 2012 at 1:01 pm » 5 Comments

**Posted by Phineas And yet the White House and its spokespeople maintained for weeks afterward that the attack on September 11th was the result of a mob demonstrating against a video, a spontaneous “happening,” like a 60s love-in. They went so far as to have our UN Ambassador, Susan Rice, proclaim this on all five […]
