Benghazi

 

Ahhhh to tackle the beast of Benghazi….dare I even try!?? No really I am so bothered by this whole thing….a major major….did I say ‘major’ cover up –with such little main stream media coverage!

So…..We’ve got 4 dead Americans, whose families are begging for the truth,  a clueless (or not) UN Ambassador –Rice- giving misleading info on talk shows, Secretary of State Clinton openly lying to the press, the head of CIA sleeping with anyone but his wife, a you tube video that took ALL the blame and now has nothing to do with the attack, and our president not admitting that it was a terrorist attack….

 But why….why not admit?? Why not say Yes, it was a terrorist attack?? The timeline below gives a run down of the events…I just provide highlights and some commentary and my reasoning as to why we were not told.

 Facts/Timeline:

(Eastern US Time)
September 11th, 2012
4pm : The Attack on the Libyan Embassy occurs

6:07 p.m.: The State Department’s Operations Centersends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts.  

About 10:00 p.m.: Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issues a statement which in its entirety made reference to the anti-Muslim video.

Clinton: Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United Statesdeplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.

 September 12th:

Obama makes a speech about the attack in Rose Garden, NEVER says TERRORIST ATTACK, He uses the term “act of terror” ….ummm an “act of terror” could be ANY violent crime, just turn on your evening news! Here is what he said: “No acts of terror will ever shake the resolve of this great nation, alter that character, or eclipse the light of the values that we stand for.”

Sept. 12: After his Rose Garden speech, Obama tapes an interview for “60 Minutes.” Obama says he didn’t use the word “terrorism” in his Rose Garden speech because “it’s too early to know exactly how this came about.”

Sept. 15: Obama discusses the Benghazi attack in his weekly address. He makes no mention of terror, terrorists or extremists. He does talk about the anti-Muslim film and “every angry mob” that it inspired in pockets of the Middle East.

Sept. 16: LibyaPresident Mohamed Magariaf says on CBS News’ “Face the Nation” that the attack on the U.S. consulate was planned months in advance. But Susan Rice, the U.S.ambassador to the United Nations, tells CBS News’ Bob Schieffer: “We do not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned.”

So this continuing denial on talk shows, to the press, and American people  continues for quite a while…but slowly and surely bits of info/truth are exposed-

Sept. 19: Matt Olsen, director of the NationalCounterterrorism Center, tells a Senate subcommittee that the four State Department officials in Benghazi “were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy.”

Sept. 20: Obama, at a town hall meeting, says “extremists” took advantage of the “natural protests” to the anti-Muslim video to attack the consulate in Benghazi. He does not call it a “terrorist attack.”

Ya….he’s still talking about the damn video!


Sept. 21: Sec Clinton Finally admits it was a terrorist attack!

 

Obama still denies “terrorist attack” for like another month! In the meantime….revelation that there was NO mob, and the video had nothing to do with the attack is admitted by White House.

October 24th : Emails are released exposing the white house knew it was a terrorist attack within 2 hours after the Attack.

Oct 26th:We learn that our CIA operatives were told to “stand down” when trying to help those who were under attack at the Embassy. Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S.consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens was, Woods disobeyed the order and went in to help those under attack, he died a hero.

Now…months later, the election is over and more and more of what really happened is being exposed….(Mind you…I did not include Obama’s partying with Jay-Z and Beyonce and his jaunt to Las Vegas to fundraise the day after the attack 🙂 )

So…..why Not tell us what happened when it happened???

Please….oh please don’t tell me -they kept us from the truth for our “own good”…or that it was to “protect” us in some way….no they didn’t tell us purely for Political gain…and for that reason we ALL should be outraged!!!

What I think happened and why is Petreaus (now “former” head of the CIA) in the spot light??

Why were the CIA operatives told to stand down, why didn’t they send help if they could have…..and they could have!!!!

Simply this-….more would have died and it would have been a BIGGER story, a story that COULD NOT be ignored till after the election, a story that COULD NOT be covered up.  It would expose the truth -that Al Qaeda is alive and thriving and that it is on the move…attacking us on the Anniversary of one of our most solemn days in history. Yes attacking America….The US Embassy in Libya is on US soil! If Al Qaeda is strong than Obama claiming their deterioration -would be a lie.

So where does Petreaus come into play…I believe he knew, and went with the video tape story because “they” knew about his affair….

But eventually somehow the affair was exposed, so the need for Petreaus to keep silent is no more, he steps down as CIA director and tells the truth…it was a terrorist attack!
I don’t know if we will ever be told what happened…because if we were told we’d be told we were lied to…lied to-to win an election.

But what is worse than all of this to me is that there are four dead Americans, and their families have yet to be told the truth. Past the politics, the lies, the saga, the soap opera of it all -there are four families that lost the ones they love and they deserve the truth.
Rest in Peace: Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, Chris Stevens, Tyrone Woods
