Obama needs to come clean on Benghazi - Right Turn - The Washington Post
Maobama will continue his tap dancing around the subject till after the election. The investigations will not be able to determine everything that happened before then either. Maobama is just trying to ride out the storm (pun intended) until after the election, it will give his regime more time to come up with someone to blame.
I'm sure he's right on it...
As a great man in the ring said
"No chancy mr whelan"
How the hell do you spell it?
Even spell check is having a melt down. too funny
No chancey mr whelan no matter how you spell it is out ouf Stampede wrestling.
Jennifer Rubin. I see more references to her on the board by righties than just about any other person. Another person who won't let fact checking stand in her way.
It's hard to keep up with all the reports, so I started a timeline by putting together the information here and elsewhere. This will need updated or even corrected as time goes on. Let's recap.
Timeline of events surrounding the Benghazi attacks
April 6, 2012
Two terrorists, who were supposed to be security guards for the consulate in Benghazi, threw homemade bombs over the consulate fence. That's right, we had the enemy protecting our embassy. The U.S. Marine guards there were not allowed to carry weapons and the only armed "guards" at the consulate were the ones carrying out the attacks.
The chairman and ranking members of the Senate Homeland Security committee, Joe Lieberman and Susan Collins, sent a letter to the State Dept inspector general requesting an investigation into the U.S. Consulate's security posture at the time of the attack.
A former official with the Bush administration spoke out because Obama appeared to be dodging the issue by saying there was no actionable intel related to the attack, though another official said that action can be, and is taken, to increase security when more general threats are known. It's called precaution when the threat level is high, even without knowing specifically who is behind the threats and attacks.
There were additional threats made during this time. We knew active al Qaeda members were in the area.
Amassador Stevens sent request for additional security and was denied.
June 6, 2012
Militants detonated an explosive at the gate of the consulate resulting in a hole large enough for an army to go through.
Facebook page associated with militants linked to the late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi posted a threat to Stevens based on the route he took for his morning jog. The Facebook page showed a picture of ambassador Stevens.
More threats were made from hostile groups.
More requests for additional security were denied.
June 18, 2012Armed gunman attacked the Tunisian consulate and burned it's flag.
More requests for additional security are denied yet again.
August 5, 2012
The Internation Committee of the Red Cross building was attacked in response to the U.S. flying drones over the area.
More threats were made.
More requests for additional security were denied.
There were a total of 4 attacks and 13 threats of terrorists attacks by this time.
Over the six month period, after pleas for more security, the former head of Special Forces "Site Security Team" reports that despite requests from himself and other U.S. Security officials on the ground asking for additional help, the State Dept. removed 34 security personnel from the country, the last unit being removed just days before the last attack.
September 11, 2012
A group of terrorists attacked our embassy in Libya, likely using the hole in the security fence from a previous attack. They removed and burned the American flag and bombed the building. Then they went after ambassador Stevens and others who fled to a safe house. The vehicle carrying Stevens and others was bombed. The body of the ambassador was paraded through the streets and photos show he appeared to be hastily re-dressed. His trousers were on backwards and his belt was unfastened. It is customary for terrorists to rape the victims. The attack went on for 7 hours, as our drones flew ahead and the entire tragedy was streamed into the situation room at the White House, where it was watched in real time.
Emails were sent from those on the ground requesting help from military. They were denied.
The last two victims were killed in the final hours, after requests from those on the ground to intervene were denied. Repeated requests to fight back were denied and all personnel were told to stand down and not defend themselves. The excuse was that not enough intel was available. I must ask, does it really matter who is trying to kill people? And why did the White House need to know who the murderers were before giving the okay for those on the ground to take action? That is like telling police not to stop criminals from shooting victims until after they investigate and learn the identity of the criminal.
4 Americans were killed by the terrorist group that day and there was no help offered by the Obama administration.
September 12, 2012
Obama skips another intel briefing and heads to Vegas for a campaign fundraiser.
In the following two weeks, Obama made countless statements, claiming that a youtube video caused demonstrators in Libya to get out of hand. He repeated condemned the video and the filmmaker, while not condemning the murders. The filmmaker is blamed for the attacks, as if what the murderers did was an automatic and appropriate response to being offended.
Obama repeatedly apologizes to those who went on a rampage over the video. Obama, White House spokespeople and the media continually report that the attacks are the fault of an American citizen for making an anti-Islam video.
Obama gives a speech to U.N. members, condemning the filmmaker and saying the reason he cannot prosecute the filmmaker is because of a little thing we have in the states called 'freedom of speech.'
Obama and Hillary put an ad out apologizing for the anti-Islam video. American tax payers foot the bill for the ad, which began airing in Muslim countries.
Hillary Clinton delivers a message to the families of the victims from Obama, telling them that the government will arrest the filmmaker who was responsible for the attacks.
Muslims continue to call for the arrest and conviction of the filmmaker. Within days, the filmmaker is arrested and the claim is that he was under suspicion of violating his probation. No further details of his fate have been released.
Obama declares that "the future should not belong to those who insult Islam."
Shortly after the attacks, CNN sent a crew to Benghazi and they found Ambassador Steven's diary and other documents showing the repeated requests for more security.
September 26, 2012
Obama supposedly sends investigators to the remains of the consulate and assures us that no enemies got their hands on any classified information from the consulate. And they know this, how?
More details slowly leak about the attacks. We now know that an al Qaeda group took full responsibility for the attacks 2 hours after they began.
Obama changes his story and now says that he always claimed it was a terrorist attack and not merely demonstrators upset over a video.
Hillary states that the State Dept never once determined that demonstrators upset at a video were responsible for the attacks.
An investigation has been underway by the Republicans in congress. Obama now claims there was insufficient intel to send help to our people in Benghazi. He also claims he never blamed the attacks on a video.
October 25, 2012
It was reported that Hillary Clinton ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi prior to the 9/11 attack, but Obama denied her request.
October 26, 2012
We find out that on 9/11, US Security Forces Were Painting Targets on Ground, which isn't done unless there is air support they are communicating with.
But someone called it off – And the decision most likely came from the White House.
October 27, 2012
It was reported that the head of Africom, General Carter Ham had a rapid response team ready to go after reading the same emails requesting help that were sent to the White House on September 11. He received an order to stand down. When he went to send help anyway, he was apprehended by his second in command, General Rodriguez, and immediately relieved of his duties. The second in command, General Rodrigues, was then nomimated by Obama to take over as commander of Africom.
October 27, 2012
Retired Army Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer reported that Obama watched the attack from the situation room at the White House. It happened in the middle of the day in Washington and people at the White House, pentagon and CIA watched it unfold in real time.
Right up until the attacks, Obama was bragging about how he bought al Qaeda to it's knees. He is also overly cautious when it comes to offending any Muslims. He wanted the American people to believe that he had eliminated the threat from al Qaeda. He knew full well they were still active and behind the series of threats and attacks, yet didn't want to insult Libya or other Arab countries by not trusting them to protect our dignitaries. This is why he allowed the Libyan guards to continue guarding the consulate, even after the same militia group they belong to attacked the consulate months earlier. He ordered that our Marines remain unarmed as a sign of trust to his Muslim friends. The Muslims and dictators of the world do trust Obama because he favors them at every turn. Even though intel revealed that the attacks in the six months before the 9/11 attack pointed to al Qaeda, Obama wanted to keep that quiet until after the election. It tells us that if he is elected again, he will cater to the radical Muslims, even if it means sacrificing American lives. His only regret is that people found out about the attacks, not that they occurred.
Stay tuned, folks. This is not over yet. More information continues to trickle out as the liberal media and Obama administration do their best to divert the publics' attention elsewhere. If Obama is re-elected, we will never get answers. He will use Holder and executive privilege to hold off any investigation.

And there it is in a nutshell.
Never happen. Even though they make a show of "taking responsibility" it is meaningless. Sociopaths like Hussein spend their lives blaming other people for their crimes. They could fire another couple of innocent Military members but he is in too deep for advisers to spin a new story.
By all means explain this Jennifer Rubin......please help us and bear in mind I am hitting lethal to rock the planet on the election.
I won't show mercy. I have no time for bullshit.
Give her or be done.
