#Benghazi: Obama knew that night that it was a terrorist strike

Posted by: Phineas on January 14, 2014 at 12:01 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas And not some lousy video made by a two-bit crook. Minutes after the American consulate in Benghazi came under assault on Sept. 11, 2012, the nation’s top civilian and uniformed defense officials — headed for a previously scheduled Oval Office session with President Obama — were informed that the event was a […]

 

Before we attack #Syria, let’s look at Libya, shall we?

**Posted by Phineas If Obama wants to launch us into another humanitarian intervention against an Arab dictator (1), perhaps we all should look at how his last Big Adventure turned out? That would be in Libya, where, according to The Independent’s Patrick Cockburn, things have gone from bad to God-awful: A little under two years […]

 

Does al Qaeda now have surface to air missiles?

**Posted by Phineas Oh, this is not good. Not good at all: The photocopies of the manual lay in heaps on the floor, in stacks that scaled one wall, like Xeroxed, stapled handouts for a class. Except that the students in this case were al Qaeda fighters in Mali. And the manual was a detailed guide, […]

 

With friends like these: Was Egypt involved in the #Benghazi massacre?

Posted by: Phineas on June 2, 2013 at 2:26 pm » 6 Comments

**Posted by Phineas The idea seems insane — Egypt participating in the assault on our consulate, when they desperately need outside help to keep their economy (barely) functioning? Sounds like the stuff of conspiracy theories, and Egyptian society thrives on such, but journalist Cynthia Farahat presents enough interesting facts to make one go “hmmmm:” The terrorist attack […]

 

New administration defense on #Benghazi: “We’re not evil, just idiots.”

Posted by: Phineas on May 17, 2013 at 2:57 pm » 3 Comments

**Posted by Phineas You know it’s bad when pleading stupidity is the best you can come up with. Via Sharyl Attkisson at CBS: Obama administration officials who were in key positions on Sept. 11, 2012 acknowledge that a range of mistakes were made the night of the attacks on the U.S. missions in Benghazi, and in messaging […]

 

Shocker: Lying weasel Jay Carney caught lying like a weasel about #Benghazi

Posted by: Phineas on May 10, 2013 at 4:03 pm » 16 Comments

**Posted by Phineas And I think the shocking thing is that it’s the MSM exposing him (emphases added): When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by […]

 

The mystery of Obama and #Benghazi

Posted by: Phineas on May 9, 2013 at 4:52 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas In my last post, I focused on Hillary Clinton’s craven behavior, driven by her lust for the Oval Office. But, as I point out, that doesn’t let Obama off the hook. He is the President, he is the Commander in Chief, and yet when American diplomats were attacked that night, he apparently […]

 

#Benghazi: Hearings show Hillary Clinton really is “Lady Macbeth.”

Posted by: Phineas on May 9, 2013 at 1:30 pm » 4 Comments

**Posted by Phineas I’ve joked since the Clintons first came on the national scene that Hillary was a modern-day “Lady Macbeth,” willing to do anything and put up with anything to get power and keep it. Think about it: why else would someone suffer repeated public humiliations from a serial-philanderer husband, one widely reputed to […]

 

Confirmed: #Benghazi consulate denied military help, administration cover up collapsing

Posted by: Phineas on May 6, 2013 at 2:40 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Via Sharyl Attkisson/CBS News, this is just disgusting: The deputy of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens has told congressional investigators that a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command South Africa. The account […]

 

#Benghazi: Obama denied aid to attacked consulate – confirmed?

Posted by: Phineas on May 2, 2013 at 1:58 pm » 8 Comments

**Posted by Phineas Last November, in a post about the Benghazi consulate massacre and the question of military relief, I wrote about the question of “cross-border authority” – that is, who has the power to order our military to enter another country without their permission, per force an act of war. Quoting an article at PJM by Matt […]
