Emails Show White House Briefed on Benghazi Terrorism in Real Time — Ansar al-Sharia Claimed Responsibility

 
At ABC News, “Email Alerts Describe 9/11 Benghazi Consulate Assault Unfolding” (via Memeorandum):

A series of email alerts sent as Obama administration officials monitored the attack on the U.S consulate in Benghazi last month are the latest to shine light on the chaotic events that culminated in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The names of the individual recipients of the emails, first reported by CBS News but independently obtained by ABC News Tuesday evening, are redacted. A source who requested anonymity said it appears they are sent by the State Department Operations Center to distribution lists and email accounts for the top national security officials at the State Department, Pentagon, the FBI, the White House Situation Room and the office of the Director of National Intelligence.

And that’s a compelling interview with Sarah Palin at the clip. I haven’t seen her this animated —- literally angry —- in quite some time. Here’s Greta’s report, “BREAKING NEWS: Emails show the Obama administration knew Ansar al Sharia was behind the attack in Benghazi.”

And at London’s Daily Mail, “White House knew al Qaeda-linked group claimed responsibility for deadly Libya attack just TWO HOURS later, emails reveal.”

And check out this devastating piece at Youngstown News out of Ohio, “Lies being told about attack in Benghazi“:

It was a little much when President Barack Obama said that he was ”offended” by the suggestion that his administration would try to deceive the public about what happened in Benghazi. What has this man not deceived the public about?

Remember his pledge to cut the deficit in half in his first term in office? This was followed by the first trillion dollar deficit ever, under any President of the United States — followed by trillion dollar deficits in every year of the Obama administration.

Remember his pledge to have a ”transparent” government that would post its legislative proposals on the Internet several days before Congress was to vote on them….

As for what happened in Libya, the Obama administration says that there is an ”investigation” under way. An ”on-going investigation” sounds so much better than ”stonewalling” to get past election day. But you can bet the rent money that this ”investigation” will not be completed before election day. And whatever the investigation says after the election will be irrelevant.

The events unfolding in Benghazi on the tragic night of Sept. 11 were being relayed to the State Department as the attacks were going on, ”in real time,” as they say. So the idea that the Obama administration now has to carry out a time-consuming ”investigation” to find out what those events were, when the information was immediately available at the time, is a little much.

The full story of what happened in Libya, down to the last detail, may never be known. But, as someone once said, you don’t need to eat a whole egg to know that it is rotten. And you don’t need to know every detail of the events before, during and after the attacks to know that the story put out by the Obama administration was a fraud.

The administration’s initial story that what happened in Benghazi began as a protest against an anti-Islamic video in America was a very convenient theory. The most obvious alternative explanation would have been devastating to Barack Obama’s much heralded attempts to mollify and pacify Islamic nations in the Middle East.

To have helped overthrow pro-Western governments in Egypt and Libya, only to bring anti-Western Islamic extremists to power would have been revealed as a foreign policy disaster of the first magnitude. To have been celebrating President Obama’s supposedly heroic role in the killing of Osama bin Laden, with the implication that al-Qaida was crippled, would have been revealed as a farce.

Osama bin Laden was by no means the first man to plan a surprise attack on America and later be killed. Japan’s Admiral Yamamoto planned the attack on Pearl Harbor that brought the United States into World War II, and he was later tracked down and shot down in a plane that was carrying him.

Neither the Los Angeles Times nor the New York Times had this breaking at their websites as of 10:15pm Pacific time, as this post was being scheduled for overnight, although Huffington Post and Reuters had the news. I’ll have more on this later.

It becomes clearer by the day. The administration’s been covering things up all along, and lying remorselessly. Conservatives are hammering the White House. While progressives are enabling the cover up with denials and obfuscation. We’ll see how things play out for the remainder of the day. It’s not going to be pretty, that’s for sure.

Pentagon Declines To Classify Ft. Hood Shootings As A Terrorist Attack…

If an al-Qaeda-inspired gunman screaming “Allahu Akbar” as he guns down 13 American soldiers is not a terrorist attack then what is?

Via Washington Times:

Already facing intense scrutiny for its shifting narrative about the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, the Pentagon now says it will not reclassify the Fort Hood shootings as a terrorist attack over concern about biasing the case against the gunman — an argument that is getting a mixed review from legal experts.

Late Friday, after 160 victims of the Fort Hood shooting called on the Pentagon to label the attack terrorism instead of workplace violence as it has for the past three years, the Department of Defense said it would not reclassify the attack.

In rejecting the victims outcry, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s spokesman cited concern that having the government weigh in could bias the case against Mr. Hasan. Maj. Hasan, 42 is awaiting trial and faces the death penalty if convicted.

When asked how Mr. Panetta plans to respond to the victims, his spokesman took a day and a half to respond, eventually emailing a statement Friday night.

Reminding People That Voter Fraud is a Crime Offends Them – We Can’t Have That

October 22, 2012

Billboards Warning Against Voter Fraud Forced Down

Maybe Democrats won’t need to bring in accomplices from the United Nations to conduct the voter fraud upon which they have pinned their election hopes. Resistance to their banana republic tactics are effortlessly crumbling:

More than 140 billboards in Ohio and Wisconsin warning of the criminal consequences of voter fraud will be taken down starting on Monday after the sponsor chose to remove them rather than reveal its identity, the billboard owner [Clear Channel] said.

The billboards, which show a large judge’s gavel and read “Voter Fraud is a felony – up to 3 ½ years and a $10,000 fine,” went up primarily in low-income minority neighborhoods in early October, just weeks before the November 6 elections, and were immediately criticized by voter rights groups as an attempt to intimidate minority voters.

Things have come to a pretty pass when liberals can say with a straight face that it is “intimidation” to remind people that voter fraud is still technically against the law.

Not even removing the billboards is enough to please Democrats.

Cleveland City Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland, one of the most vocal critics of the billboards, told Reuters on Sunday: “Needless to say I’m happy they will be taken down but I want to know who was behind this in the first place.”

Clear Channel — a reputedly conservative outfit — demonstrates its liquescent spine:

In response to the outcry, Clear Channel Outdoor donated 10 billboards around the Cleveland area that read “Voting Is a Right. Not a Crime!”

No one anywhere suggested that it was a crime for qualified citizens to vote once. What Obama, Phyllis Cleveland, the United Nations et al. are counting on is for illegal aliens to vote, and for others to vote multiple times. Clear Channel has assisted them by lending credibility to their bogus rhetoric and emboldening cheaters.

If taking the Hugo Chavez approach allows Obama to be reelected, we should change the name of the country to North Venezuela.

Most American Churches are Silent…Not This One

TEXAS CHURCH SIGN: ‘Vote for the Mormon, not the Muslim! The capitalist, not the communist!’

Gotta love those Texans! A controversy regarding a political sign prominently displayed outside a church is playing out in a small town west of San Antonio. Is it protected speech or political hate? And does it have a place on a church marquee? (Oh, it’s definitely hate speech, alright, speech that expresses the sentiments of at least half the country)

KHOU  That marquee standing outside a non-denominational church has become the talk of the town in Leakey — about 90 miles northwest of San Antonio. The Church in the Valley is run by Pastor Ray Miller. Miller declined an interview but did say the sign was solely his idea. He said he changes the sign weekly and this isn’t the first bold statement to be displayed.

The pastor said he feels strongly about the upcoming presidential election and feels the message on the marquee speaks for itself. Since it is a church, it is classified as a non-profit organization. That means, by law, it can not endorse a political candidate.

While it is a heated campaign season, some residents and visitors admit that seeing the message outside a church is an eye opener. “I can see why there’s some controversy, because the separation of church, and maybe they shouldn’t get involved in it,” said tourist Blake Fischer. “But I don’t see no problem with them trying to send a message.”

Several residents not affiliated with the church said the sign doesn’t really bother them since it’s not their place of worship. “It’s their prerogative, it’s their opinion, it’s their church,” said Pamela Rice, of Leakey.

While the very small and quiet town of Leakey is now in the spotlight, some business owners are embracing the attention. “I love it. Even if it’s bad attention, bring it on. Come to town, see what it’s about,” Damon White said. “Not everyone hates Obama, not everyone loves him; not everyone hates Romney, or loves Romney. Come see for yourself.”

 Here is a little rule of thumbI use to help me think through such questions: GOD IS SMARTER THAN I AM, SO DON’T EVER TREAT HIM LIKE HE IS STUPID.

Do you see how this ties back to the musloid pork superstitions? Islam is intrinsically stupid because its founders were stupid, and so it is not surprising that the musloid fake deity, “allah”, is also stupid. Their argument is that if a soldier fighting in jihad for “allah” should be shot with a pork-laced bullet, he goes to hell – even though he had no control whatsoever over the pork bullet or his death. Because the allegedly all-powerful “allah” is powerless against the crazy magic voodoo ju-ju of . . . pork products. See how that works? It’s called stupid. Don’t stoop to the stupid. — Barnhardt.biz

Former CIA Officials Say No Way WH Didn’t Know Benghazi Was A Terrorist Attack, Even During The Attack – Right Scoop

Judge Jeanine had three former CIA officers on her show tonight that described something called a “Critic”, short for critical incident, which is a report fired off in a crisis by a Chief of Station that goes to everyone in the intelligence community in real time. They describe it like a flare being fired off in an emergency, that it tells everyone that something critical is going on and they have to take action immediately:

I was a Chief of Station three different times so I’ve done this before. That report, a Flash or a Critic going back to Washington D.C. goes to CIA headquarters but it also goes to the situation room in the White House. It goes to the Bureau of Intelligence and Research in the State Department. It goes to the military committee – it goes to all of them… When you’re a Chief of Station and you’re in a crisis, you fire out to the entire community and they all go it immediately.

The Dead American Ambassador Being Dragged Through The Streets of Libya – “Not Optimal”

Obama On Benghazi: “When Four Americans Get Killed, It’s Not Optimal”…

Is it me or is “optimal” a bizarre word to choose here?

Via The Hill:

President Obama vowed Thursday to fix any problems that contributed to the deaths of four American foreign service personnel during last month’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, saying that “when four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal.”

Obama’s comments, referring to the Sept. 11 terror attack, came during an interview with Jon Stewart on Comedy Central. The interview, first reported in a White House media pool report, airs Thursday night.

“Here’s what I’ll say. When four Americans get killed, it’s not optimal. We’re going to fix it. All of it,” Obama said in response to a question by Stewart about the attack on the consulate.

“The government is a big operation and any given time something screws up. And you make sure that you find out what’s broken and you fix it.

Romney Debates Crowley And Obama On Benghazi, Wins

Posted on | October 17, 2012

by Smitty

Benghazi was the pivotal moment in the town hall debate, in my opinion, and that of some others:

“act of terror” is to Obama what “is” was to Clinton

 

Via BlueGrass pundit:

What a sad, pathetic joke that Obama has to have a woman attempt to stand up for him. Romney’s five sons were no doubt writhing at the raised eyebrows at 0:20 in the clip, recalling their own sad attempts at sliding one by dad, and getting thoroughly crushed by the Brows Of Doom.

The Administration’s pathetic attempt to walk back the 12 September Rose Garden speech is thoroughly debunked here. If Obama’s claim is true, that he properly labeled Benghazi terrorism initially, then shifted ‘narratives’ to call it a spontaneous riot due to Nakoula’s handiwork, then Obama’s sordid performance would be an example of postvarication, where the truth shifts to a lie upon the retelling, instead of the truth remaining in the forefront.

However, what we have here is a creep show Administration that owes Americans straight answers, but can’t even tell itself a straight story. Maybe Petraeus could offer such. Where is that guy? Stuffed under the bus behind Clapper?

Kudos to Mitt. You could see that hours of preparation that went into this debate on display. That the topic would come up was fairly obvious. But the delivery was polished, and Obama’s body language and shout to Crowley for a lifeline were sweet, sweet tells. Romney should have ended his exchange with Crowley by saying “Thank you, Madame President.” As graphically put:
And Crowley then walked back her shilling. Fortunately, these Lefty creeps no longer retain an iron grip on matters. While viewers at the time called it a draw or gave the edge to #OccupyResoluteDesk, further analysis is going to show that, as in the previous debates this season, the Republicans are holding their own despite having two opponents.

Say whatever else you want about the debate: seeing Romney have the sack to call out Obama for lying, to his face, was pure chewing satisfaction. As with the previous debate, I may have to trundle over to the Romney campaign site for a wee donation, I’m so pleased by this. And as for Candid Candy, I hope she doesn’t spend all 30 pieces of silver in one place.

Further linkage at Instapundit, but don’t miss Michelle, violating the rules, clapping in support of falsehood. I’m not ashamed of my country, in general, but the 2008 election sure was a hiccup. And, for those wondering what the debate would have looked like if you dropped some acid before viewing:

In the second presidential debate, President Obama stood up proudly for his record, offered a positive vision, called out Romney’s lies in a calm and cool way, and, most importantly, showed some real fire in the belly.

Obama Candy…STFU and Go Eat Another Sandwich

October 18, 2012

@CrowleyCNN Targeted by Fat Jokes, Legitimate Criticism, But Mainly …

Posted on | October 17, 2012

. . . yeah, it’s the legitimate criticism:

If Tuesday night’s presidential debate proved nothing else, it demonstrated one thing: CNN’s Candy Crowley is definitely not an “uncommitted voter.” The moderator’s handling of the town-hall debate at Hofstra University was heavy-handed and one-sided throughout, not merely giving more time to President Obama, but repeatedly cutting off Mitt Romney when the Republican attempted to counter accusations from the president. . . .

That’s from my American Spectator column, and I’m glad Smitty was kind enough to do a roundup of Benghazi-related debate reaction, because I was up until the pre-dawn hours this morning, and woke up about 10 a.m. too frazzled to think about it.

John Nolte at Breitbart.com called Crowley’s performance “a scandal; a total and complete media scandal . . . Absolutely disgraceful.” Matthew Sheffield of Newsbusters said Crowley “disgraced herself . . . showing why many Americans were rightfully suspicious of her ability to moderate a presidential debate fairly.” Donald Douglas at American Power called it “the worst debate moderation in presidential debate history.”

Not one of them felt it necessary to point out that Candy Crowley is fat, and I’m happy for that, because too many people resort to such cheap insults when they’re angry, and it hurts the feelings of fat people everywhere. This kind of cruelty toward BBWs and plumpers also bothers “chubby chasers” like Dan Collins, whose appreciation of Rubenesque ladies is so often misunderstood.

This probably explains why Dan’s colleague Bruce McQuain at Conservative Commune tactfully avoided any reference to Ms. Crowley’s extra pounds when criticizing her moderation of the debate. Dan himself hasn’t, um, weighed in yet, perhaps because he was so traumatized by seeing his favorite journalist universally excoriated by the blogosphere. Paul Ryan also wisely refrained from making fat jokes on “Good Morning America”:

 “Look, growing the economy through energy, through better job training programs, for getting people back to work, getting the deficit – cutting the deficit, capping spending, getting small businesses growing again. This is our specific five-point plan. These are bipartisan ideas that have worked before. We’re going to do them again. And the specific ideas on how we get off the path that we are on right now, to get this economy growing and creating jobs, and that’s what people saw. They saw a leader with a proven track record of bringing people together, getting things done, creating jobs. And that is exactly why I think Mitt Romney, again, won this debate.”

Attaboy, Paul! Stay focused on the important issues that matter to Americans, including those ladies with “more to love,” many of whom are in fact staunchly Republican. And c’mon, guys, admit it: You don’t mind a gal with more cushion for the pushin’.

Wimpy liberal beta males are usually too insecure to admit their admiration for the plus-size ladies, but genuine red-blooded American guys are unintimidated. So none of us patriotic conservative fellows had a problem with Candy’s deluxe figure, but most of us did have a problem with this:

Crowley Interrupts Romney 28 Times, Obama Just 9

“Freedom of Speech Must Be Absolute”

October 18, 2012

The First Freedom

By on 10.18.12

The freedom of speech is being diminished.

WASHINGTON — I am grateful to George Washington University professor of Law, Jonathan Turley, for pointing out that a growing number of world leaders find the First Amendment’s right of free speech to be an inconvenience. He cites, for instance, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s warning that “when some people use this freedom of expression to provoke or humiliate some others’ values and beliefs, then this cannot be protected.” Turley makes the valuable — and if you think about it obvious — observation that free speech becomes intolerable not when it is used recklessly but when one person or a group of people object to its use, especially when they object violently.

Thus the Secretary General’s neat formulation utterly collapses when, say, some heiress to Mother Teresa asseverates in public that “God is the source of all good.” It is a harmless utterance, until some indignado, say, a venerable witch, gets wind of it and objects with hurt feelings or more preferably with violence by burning down Mother Teresa’s chapel. Possibly this Mother Teresa happens to be influential worldwide and she has a whole string of chapels to burn down, possibly some are diplomatic installations. Free speech is difficult to limit. Without limiting it, it can be disagreed with. It can be ridiculed or it can be ignored. But as soon as we come up with some nice neat formulation for limiting it, à la Ban Ki-moon, along comes a mob of brutes and they put free speech to the test. Under the Ban Ki-moon formulation free speech gives way. In fact, it is extinguished.

That was the lesson from the eruption of violence around the globe to the idiotic YouTube masterpiece of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, “Innocence of Muslims.” In America hardly anyone saw it. In the Arab world my guess only the makings of a small mob or two saw it. Yet it was used as a pretext for violent protest and thus for such lawyerly poppycock as was spewed by Ban Ki-moon, and there are others. Prime Minister Julia Gillard of Australia has said, “Our tolerance must never extend to tolerating religious hatred.” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has delivered an equally muddled declaration on tolerance and free expression, arguing for the adoption of a U.N. resolution that would simultaneously guarantee “the right to practice one’s religion freely and the right to express one’s opinion without fear.” Try enforcing that resolution in Benghazi, Madame Secretary of State.

Freedom of speech is being diminished, says Professor Turley, “not from any single blow but rather from thousands of paper cuts of well-intentioned exceptions designed to maintain social harmony.” I am not sure they are “well-intentioned.” Rather I consider them the fatuous efforts of politicians intent on riding out the storm. They hope the enemies of freedom will be placated temporarily or at least until the politician retires. I am not so sure they will get their way. As Turley says, there are thousands of cuts. Eventually free expression could be extinguished.

He cites opposition to blasphemous speech, to hate speech, to discriminatory speech, and to deceitful speech. That accounts for a lot of “paper cuts.” The aggrieved groups keep growing and the defenders of free speech keep fighting off ever more enemies. Now we have the opponents of unhealthy diets opposing commercial free speech. We have already disposed of tobacco advertising. Will chocolate be next?

It seems to me freedom of speech must be absolute. Let anyone say anything they please. Let Nakoula Basseley Nakoula or whatever his name is make any film he desires. We do not have to watch it. We can protest it. We can ridicule it. We can even ridicule his idiotic name, replete with its redundancy. Call it hate speech if you will. Call it discriminatory. Just let free expression reign. As for the mob that protests him, so long as they do not break the law they too are free to utter whatever they want in public or in private, so long as they are law-abiding. That is the way we should do it in America. It is, as we say, the land of the free. Keep the lawyers, the busybodies, and the government away from the First Amendment. That is the American way.

The UN agency that promotes education wants a say in how future textbooks are written, and Saudi Arabia — a nation whose own school books have been criticized for promoting hatred of Christians and Jews — is helping to bankroll the effort.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) is currently working with member states to revise its strategy for the publication of textbooks and learning materials. According to UNESCO’s website, experts from 21 countries met in Paris last month at a meeting financed by a $29,000 Saudi donation and focused in part on “ways to ensure that content aimed at students systematically reflects cultural and religious diversity, and avoids gender stereotypes.”

Then, last week, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah cut a $20 million check to UNESCO’s emergency fund.

Catholic Archdiocese: No More Money to Komen Because It Supports Planned Parenthood

Good.

(CNSNews.com) – The Catholic Church’s Atlanta archdiocese said that Catholic parishes, missions, and schools that support the Susan G. Komen for the Cure should no longer do so because of the group’s reestablished partnership with the country’s largest abortion-provider, Planned Parenthood, “a group whose goals and activities are in direct opposition to the teachings of the Catholic Church on the sanctity of human life.”

In an Oct. 1 “Statement on Non-Support for Komen Foundation” to priests, deacons, sisters, brothers, principals, business managers, parish secretaries and chancery staff, the archdiocese said: “Until recently, donations to the greater Atlanta affiliate of the Komen fund did not constitute a direct cooperation with evil, because none of the money they raised went to Planned Parenthood. However, the local affiliate was involved in recent events which had the Komen fund initially ceasing all assistance to Planned Parenthood and then reversing itself.”

Obama At Debate: Women Rely On Planned Parenthood For Mammograms – Obama’s HHS: Actually, Planned Parenthood Doesn’t Own Any Mammogram Machines…

But they do own plenty of abortion tools.

(CNSNews.com) – President Barack Obama said during the second presidential debate against his Republican opponent Mitt Romney that women rely on Planned Parenthood for mammograms, even though the organization does not have any mammogram machines at any of its clinics, according to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

During Tuesday night’s debate against his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, Obama said, “When Gov. Romney says that we should eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood, there are millions of women all across the country who rely on Planned Parenthood for not just contraceptive care; they rely on it for mammograms, for cervical cancer screenings. That’s a pocketbook issue for women and families all across the country, and it makes a difference in terms of how well and effectively women are able to work.”

Last June, the HHS said in a response to a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request that no Planned Parenthood clinic in the United States has mammogram equipment.
