    Fatal Distraction: Focus On Benghazi, Not Broadwell




    11/14/2012


    Petraeus Scandal: Four Americans have been killed under still-unexplained circumstances, yet the obsession is with a general's mistress and not with the truth of why these men were left to die in Libya.

    How ironic that the FBI agents who descended on the home of Paula Broadwell to gather information on the mistress of now-former CIA Director David Petraeus probably did a better job than the FBI agents who gave a cursory look at our burned-out consulate in Benghazi, leaving behind classified documents strewn on the floor and even our ambassador's diary to be picked up by CNN.

    A press that ignored the administration's incompetence and swallowed its lies whole now salivates over every episode of what some have dubbed "The Real Housewives of West Point." Protect the president, but slime the military as a commune of lechers.

    Senate Intelligence Committee head Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is insisting that her committee hear directly from Petraeus about his October trip to Libya to personally inquire about the Sept. 11 terror attack on the Benghazi consulate. The general reportedly will cooperate.

    What did the nation's chief spy find out? What's in his report? Did it have anything to do with the curious timing of his "resignation," just after the election and just before he was to testify to Congress? Will it blow the administration's narrative out of the water?

    Who gave the order for forces to "stand down" and not go to the rescue of the consulate compound or the safe house? A week before Petraeus' resignation, the CIA issued a flat denial that any order to stand down ever came from anyone in the agency. Why wasn't a rescue attempt mounted when AC-130 gunships and Apache attack helicopters could have arrived in time?

    Why, two days after officials from the National Counterterrorism Center gave Capitol Hill briefings in which they said Benghazi was likely a terrorist attack and that there were several al-Qaida training camps just outside Benghazi, did Petraeus tell lawmakers exactly the opposite, following the administration line that the attack was more consistent with a flash mob infuriated by an obscure Internet video?

    And as long as we must mention Ms. Broadwell, can anyone explain the speech she made at the University of Denver on Oct. 26 in which she revealed the news that the CIA had been holding two terrorist prisoners at the consulate and the attack was an attempt by terrorists to rescue them? Was this made up to hype her biography of Petraeus, ironically titled "All In," gleaned from his computer, or was it indiscreet pillow talk?

    It's not the affair that should be the focus of the investigation. It's the lies produced by the Obama regime from 9/11/12 to the present. Didn't we all hear the Bull crap about an unseen video that presumably triggered the protest that suddenly turned into an attack. Then there was Obama, Hillary and Rice all making the claim about this 'Video". Why is it that on September 12, on TV Obama said differently and that snip was with held until 48 hours before the election?
    Was this whole mess an incompetent move to transfer the Blind Sheik from America to Egypt? Was this worth the deaths of four Americans?
    According to those who support Obama the answer is yes. Had something like this happened under a Republican President they'd be calling for the president's head on a platter.

    The "stand down order" not to go to the aid of the consulate is pure bullshit fabrication. The CIA left the annex within 24 minutes of hearing of the attack. No stand down order came. Stop repeating this lie.

    Why do you think this Sex Scandal broke when it did? The Obama admin is Wagging the Dog and doing a very good job of it.

    All though it's not hard for them to do, Considering everyone in the Media but FOX is in their pockets.
