“Are There Any Men Left in Washington?”

Another path to another 9/11...

People have been wondering where CIA director David Petraeus has been since the Benghazi terror attack, and the resulting churning and spinning from the Obama administration of information about the attack and who was or was not responsible for not only the lack of security in and around the U.S. areas within Benghazi, but the failure to provide security and support during the seven hour attack. While no one within the administration has yet firmly stepped forward to take responsibility, Petraeus apparently has heard enough deflecting of blame being piled onto the CIA in this matter...

Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out this statement: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”

So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need?

[...]

It would have been a presidential decision.

But it continues, right under our noses, and in Benghazi...

This administration's proudest foreign policy boast is the assassination of Osama Bin Laden. But the Benghazi fiasco and the simultaneous mob burning of our Cairo Embassy by Al Qaida on the eleventh anniversary of 9/11/01, proves to radical Muslims that Osama bin Laden has won. His jihad has gone from strength to strength, gathering more militant fanatics than we killed in Iraq and Afghanistan. Osama bin Laden is now a hero, and Barack Obama is a weakling who never stops trying to surrender and apologize.

The New York Times just found a known leader of the September 11 assault by AQIM -- Al Qaida in the Maghreb -- lounging openly in the coffee houses of Benghazi, with no fear of retaliation for burning down our mission and murdering our Ambassador. Our deeply deluded media and Democrats are pretzel-bending the facts to argue that Benghazi means nothing.

Radical Muslims know better.

Nations win wars by protecting their territory and citizens. Guerillas win wars just by surviving, and by striking at a time and place of their choosing.

What is going on right now with the Benghazi terror attack and the cover-up oddly reminds me of this:

Several years ago there was a much contested (by the Clintons) ABC movie called "The Path To 9/11". In this, one of the most objected to scenes from the movie, we see our CIA ops on the ground in Afghanistan with the 'Lion of Panjshir', Ahmad Shah Masood. They had just tracked Osama Bin Laden to a small village, and the CIA agents in the field were pulling their hair out while awaiting the "go" command from Washington to take out Bin Laden. The CIA command back in the states argued with then National Security Advisor Sandy Burger for permission to pull the trigger...

In a following scene Masood warns his CIA contact that if he hears he has been killed, know that they (the terrorists under the command of Bin Laden) would next be carrying out something big against the United States. Masood was assassinated the Sunday before 9/11/01. ABC has since blocked the DVD release of "The Path to 9/11" but you can track it down on Youtube in several parts if you missed its one and only run on ABC.

    Clinton got away with far more and far worse than adulterous sex on the job. But, since he was a Dem as well as much more personable than Nixon, he was allowed to blow everything off like inconsequential indiscretions. The man is considerably uglier and nastier than he appears.

    Drill; good job of reminding us again what the Democrats are all about. This is the risk-averse cowardice you get from them each time the ignorant citizenry puts them in the White House. Whether it's the Bay of Pigs, pre-9/11 opportunities to kill OBL, or Benghazi, you can always count on a Democrat to show his/her yellow streak down their back. Hell, there were reports that Biden and other senior advisors (possibly even Obama) where hesitant to pull the trigger on Bin Laden last year. Yet, they brag about what bad asses they are - makes me friggin sick! Once again, in general, they are so risk-averse, or hampstrung by their leftist sympathies, that they can't make the tough decisions to defend Americans - just like Masood said, flat out Cowards!

    Ditto Mambi!

  • Plausible deniability, avoidance of responsibility, denial of direct involvement.

    Bill Clinton did not have sex with Monica Lewinski, she had sex with him.

    Barack Obama's entire Presidential legacy will be one packed with pushing the blame to someone else for every thing that happened during his tenure that is in any way negative.
