Why Benghazi Matters

May 5th, 2014 - 11:06 am

Benghazi matters because it was and is a matter of national honor. And the men and women currently in charge in Washington have no honor.

Honorable people do not let American diplomats twist slowly in the wind while they attend “debate prep” and rest up for a shakedown meeting with the One Percent. Honorable people do not suddenly go AWOL while American soil is under attack.  Honorable people do not fail to mobilize the formidable resources of the American military, even if it might not be possible for them to get there in time. Honorable people, under questioning by Congress, do not lose their temper and start shouting. Honorable people do not look the bereaved in the eye and lie about who and what killed their loved ones.

Further: honorable people do not go before the public on the Sunday talk shows and knowingly transmit a bald-faced lie. Honorable people do not continue to lie about what took place. Honorable people do not say “We are Americans; we hold our head high,” and then hang their heads in shame as they cut and run at the first sign of trouble.  Honorable people do not continue to reward the dishonorable with ever-higher posts. Honorable people resign.

And until honorable people are restored to Washington — not credentialed Ivy League lawyers with high name recognition steeped in cheap Marxism and fashionable anti-American contempt, but genuine patriots who understand that something has gone terribly wrong with America and needs to be redressed — there will be no justice for the victims of Benghazi.

As the Left likes to say: no justice, no peace.

"Only in the Manhattan-Beltway corridor do people think Benghazi is a GOP concern driven by 2016 political considerations."

No. Benghazi is a Democrat concern driven by 2012 political considerations.

The President of the United States and the Secretary of State left 30+ Americans to die, on sovereign American soil, including an American ambassador.

(I continue to wonder: why would anyone want to be an ambassador for this administration? Ambassadors know that this administration, and this President, will abandon them to a gruesome death to save their own cushy jobs.)

Hillary Clinton does not deserve to be President, nor any other position where the lives of others are in her hands. She is the Butcher of Benghazi.

Well, let's see: Obama is at historic lows in approval ratings and effectively a lame duck, Elizabeth Warren's possible candidacy is getting a lot of traction on the Left, there are rumors about Hillary's health, and Trey Gowdy will soon be a household name. The "Dude" guy is a national laughingstock, the incestuous relationship between the Obama administration and the media has been publicly revealed, John Kerry is routinely humiliated, Putin is on the move and the Pentagon under the Enlisted Man is a mess.

I stand by my statement.

Not only did they do all that, Michael...but they withheld material evidence in order to obstruct justice.

They lied about what they were doing in Benghazi, they lied about the attack, they lied about the video, they lied about the communications, they lied about the investigation, they lied about their testimony, they lied about Clinton/Obama involvement, they lied about the importance of this scandal.

A corrupt, lawless, seditious, unaccountable cabal.

We have a criminal enterprise filled with flunkies and groupies, campaign van drivers and self-aggrandizing chumps doing the Flunky Chicken, when called to pay the piper.

The Clown Mafia, La Bozo Nostra screaming that we should move along. Nothing to see in the GDP report. Nothing to investigate in Benghazi. No contempt in the IRS scandal. Fast and Furious should be ignored.

Diana West/Bukic say there is a rug to look under, where Benghazi dirt was swept. It is right that we begin to uncover the truth, it is just that we hold the guilty accountable and by God, it is time we stand up to treason and tyranny.

Mullah Gore and the Benghazi Coverup
http://nyyrc.com/blog/2014/05/mullah-gore-and-the-benghazi-cover-up/

In an April 20 (given the deep connections between the Brotherhood and the Nazi Party, the date may not have been an accident) story in the Jerusalem Post, the question was asked, Will Qatar abandon the Muslim Brotherhood? As they put it, Qatar is the only country who openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood. This followed the pressure exerted on Qatar to do just that from its three Gulf neighbors, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Saudi Arabia even threatened a blockade should Qatar not comply. Clearly the Brotherhood, and their revolutionary aims, had been recognized as a threat and an ultimatum given.

Nine days later, on April 29, news broke of the damning White House emails, which included an operative of the Muslim Brotherhood. A Benghazi cover-up had been proved to the American public.

On April 27, totally unreported, a delegation from the Qatar Investment Authority visited Washington D.C. This information is available on the official website of Qatar’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. QIA’s CEO Ahmad bin Mohamed Al-Sayed met with senior U.S. officials, including “Governor of the state of Virginia, Terry Macaulf [sic], Vincent Gray , mayor of Washington, DC, and Michael Nutter , the Mayor of the City of Philadelphia,” and John Podesta, “Senior Advisor to the U.S. President.”

Two days before the release of what may be the Obama administration’s Watergate, and in the midst serious diplomatic trouble for Qatar, the Senior Advisor to the President met with the QIA – the same QIA who fund Al Jazeera… the same Al Jazeera who paid Al Gore and Qatari-connected partners $500 million for their failed television network. There is no doubt Podesta knew what was in those emails, and was fully aware of coming the political fallout. He went to strategize.

You can tell this one is a recent product of the government schools; a lot of attitude and no grammar, punctuation, or vocabulary.

You do have a strange definition of "made up scandal". Was it made up that Ambassador Stevens died? Was it made up the CIA immediately knew it was terrorism and told State and the administration? Was it made up Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Powers, and the rest of the administration blatantly lied about it?

No, as much as you hate to hear it, this is Watergate. It is the cover up and the lies that will kill the administration.

The shame of a CIC (coward in Chief?) who did not send available military help to Benghazi would have made an honorable man step down. When such a man continues to remain in place, the fault turns to those who allow him to be there.
Case closed.

Like H Clinton says in the top video "It is our job to figure out what happened and make sure it does not happen again." Very true. Now how can we do that without a real honest powerful investigation? We can't because H Clinton and her colleagues cannot be trusted. I suspect that Michael Walsh is understating the evil. I think this could be very sinister indeed. It is more than honor that is at stake. If the underlying cause of Benghazi was the reckless commitment to supply arms to Al Queda then we need to know.

I continue to be amazed at how duplicitous the Democrats can be. I blame the MSM for that. It's really easy to be a liar if you understand you'll never be held responsible for that lie. The MSM is participating in the lies the Democrats and this administration pass out to the American people.

It's time for the Democrats to be called out for all the lies of the past 6 years. I can only hope the Republicans grow a spine and start holding them accountable. The Dick Durbins, Chuck Schumers, and Harry Reids of this world have divided this country enough. It's time to call them on it and comity be damned.

The Left has two ways to argue, and only two. As it happens, they are the two lowest forms of argument: tu quoque ("your guy did it, too") and ad hominem ("you suck"). That's it.

W took the blame rather than endanger Americans. Obama endangers Americans rather than take the blame. When did W go to sleep while military lives were in danger? The people on the line know who backed them and who didn't.

How childlike to point the finger rather than accept responsibility. The current administration seems saturated with overgrown infants never having recovered from not being breast fed.

Yes, Dem true-believers point the finger and they're cute when they whine in one fashion or another that Boosh Did It Too! The childlike only point to those they consider their betters when using that excuse. Children never try to excuse themselves by saying The Bad Kid Did It Too!

Every time a Dem true-believer yells "Boosh!" they're committing themselves to recognizing he's their superior in morals and patriotism, even if they make their guilty admission in a back-handed fashion.

What 11 Benghazi's would that be? How many of those attacks under Bush were actual breeches of Embassy walls? How many Americans were murdered in those attacks? How many US Ambassadors were murdered in those attacks? Finally, how many of those attacks did Bush blame on a video?
