MSNBC sinks to new low, blames Chris Stevens for his own death

Frankly, after an hour of Fox in the morning, one has about as much news as one is going to get. So I wandered over to MSNBC for a morning charge, usually more potent than a double Expresso. In one of the most absurd diatribes regarding the Benghazi attacks, it is now Stevens fault for his death. Just for the memory since apparently the media and most people have a short one:

Al-Qaeda flag flying high over Libya – thanks Obama Posted bunkerville  November 4, 2011, more than a year before the attack and murders. And you want to tell me that Al-Qaeda was not involved???

Here we go: Sadly, the flag of al-Qaeda is not just being flown at the Benghazi courthouse.  According to eyewitnesses, it is now being displayed all over Benghazi.  The following is an account from an eyewitness that has seen the flag flying over the Benghazi courthouse for himself….

It was here at the courthouse in Benghazi where the first spark of the Libyan revolution ignited. It’s the symbolic seat of the revolution; post-Gaddafi Libya’s equivalent of Egypt’s Tahrir Square. And it was here, in the tumultuous months of civil war, that the ragtag rebel forces established their provisional government and primitive, yet effective, media center from which to tell foreign journalists about their “fight for freedom.”

But according to multiple eyewitnesses—myself included—one can now see both the Libyan rebel flag and the flag of al Qaeda fluttering atop Benghazi’s courthouse.

According to one Benghazi resident, Islamists driving brand-new SUVs and waving the black al Qaeda flag drive the city’s streets at night shouting, “Islamiya, Islamiya! No East, nor West,” a reference to previous worries that the country would be bifurcated between Gaddafi opponents in the east and the pro-Gaddafi elements in the west.


Now back to the news of this morning:

In a disgusting display of just how far the liberal media will go to preserve Hillary Clinton’s presidential prospects, Katty Kay has blamed Ambassador Chris Stevens for his own death, while letting Hillary off the hook.

On today’s Morning Joe, the BBC’s Kay called the newly-released Senate report on the Benghazi attack “sad” because it showed that Stevens was “fallible.” Kay claimed that “he didn’t ask for and even rejected some of the security he might have had.” This flies in the face of the report’s findings that “State, then under Hillary Clinton, refused requests to boost security despite warnings from the CIA and its own staff about the danger of militant attacks.”

There really are no words to describe what Katty Kay did in seeking to shift blame away from Hillary and onto a brave ambassador who because of Clinton’s neglect is not here to defend himself.  But let’s try “contemptible” for starters.

Video over at NewsBusters

JOE SCARBOROUGH: [Libya] was just a rat’s nest of terrorists in and out. There was anarchy across the country and if you’re Secretary Clinton and you get cables from the ambassador saying we need additional securityyou know, you act on that. It’s not like it’s just another outpost. It’s like one of the hottest outposts out there. I think that is a fair criticism and I don’t know that Hillary Clinton ever answered that.

KATTY KAY: Yeah. I mean I think there’s always been two important points about this story and neither of them frankly are political. One is the intelligence. Why did U.S. intelligence analysts miss what was clearly a buildup of insecurity in Benghazi? The British ambassador for example had been targeted in his car just before the attack on the U.S. compound. We knew that this becoming increasely volatile. And the other was the security issue. Why were outposts in an area, as you suggest, that was difficult, where the Americans had just completed a war. Why were they not properly defended? And this report in a way is very sad because Chris Stevens, who was the ambassador who was killed who was clearly a brave and honorable man, was also fallible, and perhaps didn’t ask for, rejected even, some of the security he might have had.

Obama Wants Libyans to Come Here, Work in “Aviation Maintenance” and “Nuclear Fields”

As  Front Page Mag  says, I can’t think of a single possible thing that could go wrong with this plan. I only wish there was some way to get the Saudis, Iranians and Pakistanis involved to really improve our national security.

Have they lost their minds? Does this regime really hate us that much? Don’t answer. Over 40 percent of leadership positions at DHS are vacant. Great, the latest nominee, who is nothing more than a lawyer, will have as his first priority to fill vacancies. First from News Yahoo just to tune us up for the story:

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama’s pick to be the Homeland Security secretary said Wednesday that filling key leadership vacancies and improving morale is more critical currently than the department’s core counterterrorism mission.In answers to questions leading up to his Senate confirmation hearing, Jeh Johnson deviated from his predecessors’ stated priorities by listing counterterrorism third instead of first, among priorities.

Johnson’s priorities may say less about his commitment to fighting terrorism and more about the struggling state of the massive department created in the aftermath of the 9/11 attack, however. Roughly 40 percent of the senior leadership positions are vacant at the department responsible for enforcing immigration and trade laws, securing the nation’s borders, protecting the president and countering drugs and terrorism. And it has long been ranked among the federal agencies with the lowest morale.

The long-time Obama supporter and former Defense Department general counsel testified before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs committee. Johnson is expected to win Senate confirmation and would be the fourth Homeland Security secretary, if confirmed

Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have obtained an internal Department of Homeland Security draft final regulation that would lift a 20 year ban on Libyans coming to the US to work in sensitive fields.

The document — highlighted Thursday by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte of Virginia and Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz — shows that DHS is working to amend its regulations to eliminate the restrictions on Libyan nationals and foreign nationals acting on behalf of Libyan entities from coming to the United States to work in aviation maintenance, flight operations, or to study nuclear-related fields.

“It is shocking that the Obama Administration is turning a blind eye to real terrorist threats that exist in Libya today,” Goodlatte said in a statement. “Just over a year ago, four Americans were killed in the pre-planned terrorist attacks on the American Consulate in Benghazi.”  (Ed. Thanks for reminding us.)

State Dept clears Benghazi Officials “These are real people with real lives”

First A clip of Charlene Lamb’s testimony before Issa’s House Committee.She declined the requests for improved security. She says it was not a budget concern that denied additional funding. No matter, the orders came from higher up no doubt. Hillary and her pals will skate on this one. The sad part is that no one at all will pay any consequence for this fiasco that cost lives and maimed who knows even how many. In the second clip Marie Harf appears in the video at about 1:00 minute in. Note the petulant arrogant mouth piece who apparently is the new face of the State department.
State Department Clears Benghazi Officials: “These Are Real People with Real lives” she says. How about those who will never again be real people with real lives?

Four State Department employees put on leave after terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi have been cleared, the department says.

The group had been put on administrative leave in December by then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton after the September attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

“After consideration, he reaffirmed its findings that no employee breached their duty or should be fired but rather that some should be reassigned.”

The decision to move the Benghazi consulate workers to other areas within the department was made to “continue to turn the page and shift the paradigm inside the department,” the official said. Yes indeed, let us turn this nasty page. GOP USA

Boehner stonewalling Benghazi investigation to cover-up his own involvement?

There is an allegation that Boehner is in on what went down in Benghazi. It would be easy to pass it off even though it makes sense of why there is no concerted effort by Boehner to get to the bottom of it. But we have Pat Cadell, no GOP operative, and Mark Levin going full-bore taking this position. So here we go with Mofopolitics take:

Pat Caddell alleges that  collaborator John Boehner has been “purposely” stonewalling the Benghazi investigation…

We have John Boehner, who has been purposely suppressing anything about Benghazi because he knew what we found out this week…and he approved it!

Obama’s “rebels” (in Syria) are AL QAEDA terrorists.

How does Obama keep shipping them weapons… without getting impeached?

Pat Caddell explains it!

Mark Levin comes to terms with that which has been obvious for months: That Marxist collaborator John Boehner has no intention of getting to the bottom of what happened in Benghazi…

We have to draw a very sad conclusion: John Boehner does NOT want to know what took place in Benghazi. And I’m honestly starting to think that he’s cut some kind of deal with Obama.

Anti-Israel NSA Susan Rice now running our country while Obama plays?

Whitehouse Dossier lets us know what our absentee leader was doing on Saturday while the “Terrorist” threat was going down. No real surprise, but the kernel of info that we should pay attention to was that it was Susan Rice who is now running the show. Yep, the same gal who with her pals Samantha Power and Hillary Clinton brought us all of the mess we now have in the Middle East. The same one with her infamous Sunday talking points.

First, what was our leader doing? The same thing as when Benghazi was going down. Letting others take the heat for whatever missteps occur. Here we go: “Obama Partying While Advisors Meet on Terror Threat.”

As his top national security advisors gathered for an urgent Saturday meeting to discuss the terrorist threat that has forced the United States to close embassies overseas, President Obama was at Camp David celebrating his birthday with friends.

Sixteen senior officials participated in the unusual gathering, according to the White House. Among them were National Security Advisor Susan Rice, who chaired the session, Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, and Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism Lisa Monaco, and Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano.

Obama was briefed after the session by Rice and Monaco, according to the White House.

Obama, whose birthday is today, was already celebrating at least a day early, playing golf in the morning with 11 longtime buddies and then traveling with them to Camp David, where the party continued. The president is scheduled to return to the White House today.

The White House didn’t say where the meeting took place, though such a session would presumably be held at the White House in the Situation Room. The White House labeled the gathering a “principals meeting,” which may be an attempt to excuse the president’s absence by suggesting that only the top officials of various agencies were meant to be present. But it’s unclear why Obama wouldn’t have wanted to directly participate in such a vital discussion.

Just a refresher:

from: Three women who brought us the new long war in Libya March 2011. and Anti-Semite Susan Rice to NSA, Samantha Power to UN

[]Susan Rice, U.N. Ambassador
This shameful United Nations ambassador,with her most recent anti-Israel tirade, gashed open an already-raw-wound in Obama administration U.S. Israeli relations.
“But then Rice opened her mouth, and as I write, is delivering a truly foul speech in which she flatly declares that “we reject in the strongest terms the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity,” and declares that such activity is, essentially, the cause for “corroded hopes” in the Middle East. She condemned “the folly and legitimacy” of continued settlement activity”.
Rice, who now purports to be so concerned about the “human rights violations” committed by Muammar Gaddafi in putting down a revolution, is behind the horrific appointment of Iran to the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women.This despite such facts as Iran is a country whose prison guards rape female inmates before executing them because it is illegal under shariah law to kill a virgin.

Previously:

And now she is a senior foreign policy adviser to Presidential candidate Barack Obama, as well as occupying the Anna Lindh Professorship of Practice of Global Leadership and Public Policy How appropriate: Anna Lindh, the late Swedish Foreign Minister, was a dedicated opponent of Israel.”

….In joining Ms. Rice and Ms. Power, Mrs. Clinton made an unusual break with Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, who, along with the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and the counterterrorism chief, John O. Brennan, had urged caution. Libya was not vital to American national security interests, the men argued, and Mr. Brennan worried that the Libyan rebels remained largely unknown to American officials, and could have ties to Al Qaeda.”

Obama: ‘Al Qaeda is most definitely on the run’ as Obama puts his tail under his butt

I am breaking one of my resolutions that I would not include any vids of our Dictator. It is just too much to bear. But after hearing that we are turning tail and running from the so-called terrorists that we had “put on the run”, I just could not resist. When are we going to stand tall and defend ourselves and our sovereign land upon which our embassies and consulates stand? When?

U.S. defense officials said there have been no shifts of assets in response to the embassy closures. Defense officials noted that in recent months the Marine Corps has built up quick reaction forces in the region, in large measure to respond to threats against embassies and other diplomatic outposts. But what the heck, let us just pack it in and give them our embassies.

Here we go:

WASHINGTON—Al Qaeda re-emerged as a top global security threat after suspected plots by an affiliate of the terror group led the State Department to issue a world-wide travel alert for the entire month of August.

Senior U.S. officials said they were particularly focused on Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, or AQAP, saying the affiliate was plotting attacks that Washington feared could be executed in the Middle East, Africa or beyond.

The State Department, in addition to shutting embassies in countries including Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and Egypt, warned that tourist resorts, bus and rail systems and airlines could be targets, standard language that accompanies such alerts.

AQAP has successfully honed bombing technology that has previously threatened U.S.-bound air travel on passenger and cargo planes, making the organization one of the prime threats facing America and Yemen—and making Yemen of the most frequently targeted sites of the U.S. drone campaign.

WJS

Last year a recurring theme in Obama’s campaign was that Al Qaeda was on the run or similar. Variants include Al Qaeda was decimated or they were on the path to defeat. So if that is the case then how did Al Qaeda break out some 500 members from two Iraqi prisons. Al Qaeda is most definitely on the run as Obama wanted the sheeple to believe Somalia, Iraq and Syria just to name 3.

Egypt’s Morsi linked to Benghazi

Now doesn’t this work out just swell? We knew this whole Benghazi thing was more than “what difference does it make” quality about it. I think the lady did protest too much. Now Egypt is in flames with those who want to rid itself of Morsi. Of course, after we have armed him to the teeth. Calling Hillary.. care to share your light on this along with your pals Huma, Samantha Power and Susan Rice who cooked up this whole thing? If this story is true, impeachment should begin.

Gateway Pundit:

Raymond Ibrahim reported, via Doug Ross:

According to a Libyan intelligence document, the Muslim Brotherhood, including Egyptian President Morsi, were involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where several Americans, including U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, were killed.

On Wednesday, June 26, several Arabic websites, including Veto Gate, quoted the intelligence report, which apparently was first leaked to the Kuwaiti paper, Al Ra’i. Prepared by Mahmoud Ibrahim Sharif, Director of National Security for Libya, the report is addressed to the nation’s Minister of Interior.

It discusses the preliminary findings of the investigation, specifically concerning an “Egyptian cell” which was involved in the consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene” six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (“Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested.

According to the report, during interrogations, these Egyptian jihadi cell members “confessed to very serious and important information concerning the financial sources of the group and the planners of the event and the storming and burning of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi…. And among the more prominent figures whose names were mentioned by cell members during confessions were: Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi; preacher Safwat Hegazi; Saudi businessman Mansour Kadasa, owner of the satellite station, Al-Nas; Egyptian Sheikh Muhammad Hassan; former presidential candidate, Hazim Salih Abu Isma’il…”

Cynthia Farahat Frontpage also reported on the Egyptian connection in May.

Indeed, one of the videos shot with a cell phone of one of the attackers emerged around the time four Americans were killed. It shows a mob approaching the American compound under siege, clearly telling the terrorists in the dialect of Upper Egypt: “Mahadesh, mahadesh yermi, Dr. Morsi ba`atna” — which translates to: “Don’t shoot, don’t shoot, Dr. Morsi sent us.”…

…The name Morsi is Egyptian and does not exist in any other Arabic speaking country.

Obama Wants to move Tens of Thousands Syrian Refugees to the US

Sure most people just see refugees, but Democrats see voters. A number of the refugees will be Christian, but somehow I think Obama isn’t all that interested in Christian refugees.

What could go wrong with this plan? Thousands from Afghanistan and Iraq and who knows where are already here.

Taking in Muslim refugees from Muslim civil wars in Somalia, Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere has largely been a disaster. The original World Trade Center bombing happened in part because the United States was willing to host Egyptian Islamists who would have been arrested in their own country. And who exactly will be taking in now?

If the Muslim Brotherhood Jihadists lose in Syria, their leaders will flee to Europe and America where they will suborn, undermine and plan acts of terror.

Two years into a civil war that shows no signs of ending, the Obama administration is considering resettling refugees who have fled Syria, part of an international effort that could bring thousands of Syrians to American cities and towns.

A resettlement plan under discussion in Washington and other capitals is aimed at relieving pressure on Middle Eastern countries straining to support 1.6 million refugees, as well as assisting hard-hit Syrian families.

The State Department is “ready to consider the idea,” an official from the department said, if the administration receives a formal request from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Refugees, which is the usual procedure.

The United States usually accepts about half the refugees that the U.N. agency proposes for resettlement. California has historically taken the largest share, but Illinois, Florida, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia are also popular destinations. HT: Front Page Mag

And just who will be these fine folks?

In an article about Obama-backed Syrian jihadists who beheaded a Christian and fed him to the dogs, Pamela Geller stated it best:

If you need a  fail-safe formula for determining who the bad guys are — ask what side is Obama on: [...] Christian Andrei Arbashe, 38, was kidnapped and beheaded by rebel fighters in northern town of Ras Al-Ayn on the Turkish border [...] Syrian rebels beheaded a Christian man and fed his body to dogs, according to a nun who says the West is ignoring atrocities committed by Islamic extremists. She said his headless corpse was found by the side of the road, surrounded by hungry dogs. He had recently married and was soon to be a father.”

Every day presents more proof that Obama is on the side of the Islamic caliphate to rule the world and destroy Western civilizations which includes Israel and America. Obama is the enemy within.

Obama recently announced he will be giving away another $300 million of our taxpayer money to the al-Qaeda Syrian rebels which now brings the total to $815 million. Proof that these rebels pledge loyalty to al-Qaeda presented by USA Today

Panetta: Obama Absent Night of Benghazi

 For first time, we are getting the real story behind Benghazi. For those who may have not gotten a chance to watch the hearings, I chose these two clips that sum it up. Obama could have cared less, and never expressed any concern. Mark Levin made the point last night that it was Obama that had the authority to order a cross border entry of our military. Clearly, he did not. Lindsey Graham does a good job of nailing it down. Levin also commented that ABC, CBS, NBC did not cover the hearing at all.

Here is a good outline of how it really went down.

Panetta’s big stick– watch out Terrorist’s- we’re coming for you!

Truthfully, it has been pretty much of a gagger to try to post the last couple of days. But finally I found a real hoot. Now that Panetta is walking out the door, after we left Americans to die in Benghazi, and have done nothing to go after those who did it, after we turned the Middle East into a tinder box, this savant has his last remarks recorded and that should go down in History as demonstrating one of the most insightful foreign polices in our Nation’s History. He claims we helped out big time in Algeria after everyone knows Algeria told us to go to hell as well as the rest of the Europeans. Add our savant Clinton who just issued this warning that perhaps Americans may want to take off Algeria as their destination vacation port.  Wow, four more years that should get even better with our new Secretary of State and Defense. At least the word “Terrorist” was used. We indeed have come a long way. So this is my inaugural post. God help us.

The State Department issued a travel warning Saturday night for Americans in or traveling to Algeria, citing credible threats of the kidnapping of Western nationals. The department also authorized the departure from Algeria of staff members’ families if they choose to leave.

“Terrorists should be on notice that they will find no sanctuary, no refuge. Not in Algeria, not in North Africa, not anywhere,” Panetta told an audience in London.

Panetta says US officials are “working around the clock” to secure the safe release of aof US citizens who have been taken hostage by militants at a gas plant near the Algerian town of In Amenas.
