Benghazi for Dummies
Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit calls this weekend's CBS report on Benghazi "DEVASTATING!" ... The people who are actually seriously looking at the Benghazi timeline and the following cover-up by the Obama administration at the highest seats know that if this were a republican administration the MSM would not only be calling for a Watergate-like impeachment (and "frog-marching") right now, but would not have sat on this story during the 2012 election cycle...
Throughout the night, sources say Americans on the ground in Libya at times felt helpless and abandoned.
“We relied on Washington for dispassionate assessment,” one eyewitness told CBS News. “Instead, they [Washington officials] were asking us what help we needed. We answered: ‘Send reinforcements!’ ”
But they were told immediate help wasn’t available.
Embassy personnel say they repeatedly asked the Defense Attache on site in Tripoli for military assistance.
“Isn’t there anything available?” one Embassy official says he asked. “But the answer was ‘no.’”
“What about Aviano?” the official pressed, referencing the NATO air base with US assets in northeastern Italy. “No,” was the answer.
Two of the four Americans killed that night died hours after the first attack began…
…Counterterrorism sources and internal emails reviewed by CBS News express frustration that key responders were ready to deploy, but were not called upon to help in the attack. National Security Council Spokesman Tommy Vietor told CBS News the CSG was not needed.
How deep and bad has the Benghazi cover-up been? The State Department's Benghazi investigation panel is now under investigation...
The hearings with the "whistleblowers" in front of Congress are schedulaed for this Wednesday at 11:00 a.m., and will be live-fed on C-SPAN. Some of the testimony will involve "then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a key aide effectively tried to cut the department's own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making". Oh, and since the proverbial cat-is-out-of-the-bag, democrats are now throwing Susan Rice under the bus and acting all shocked ... or something. One more point, the White House and democrats will now feed the MSM the talking-point that the Benghazi attack was a result of GOP-forced budget cuts the State Department and Hillary Clinton has to deal with. That would be more total bullshit. And neither was some stupid Youtube video to blame. The fact here now is I think it's safe to speculate that the White House and the MSM are undoubtedly in brain-grinding jam-sessions to find someway to discredit and trash the "whistleblowers" who will be testifying and contradicting the White House's narrative on Benghazi. Maybe one of them has an over-due library book?
And so, since some confused Americans have not even heard a snippet of information about this terrorist attack on Americans (on the anniversary of the 9/11/01 terrorist attacks), and are unaware the administration's and the MSM's deliberate cover-up makes Nixon's "Watergate" look like a child's fib over a raided cookie jar, here is a simple starting point to explain what "Benghazi" is:
This is the U.S. Consulate under attack on 9-11-12 in the city of Benghazi, Libya. Four American citizens were murdered, including our Ambassador Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith. It is where former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty disobeyed the order to "STAND DOWN" and not fight back as they fought for over seven hours to defend our soil there, giving their lives so that 30 of our people could escape with their lives...
This is veteran American actor (the late) Ben Gazzara ... THIS is not Benghazi.
UPDATE: "Fans" and "fecal matter" comes to mind...
