The Ugly Truth About The Benghazi Propaganda….

Everyone now agrees that on Sept 14th the entire intelligence community gave the White House specifics about what was the impetus of the Benghazi attack, al-Qaeda.   Now everyone agrees that on Sept 16th the same White House sent UN Ambassador Susan Rice to talk to the American people specifically removing the Truth and instead blaming a U-Tube video.  In essence, propaganda.

Michael Goodwin at FOX News – Until Friday, there were two possible explanations for why the White House failed to immediately call the Benghazi attack an act of terrorism. One was incompetence, the other was worse.

Now there is only one, and it is the worse one. Based on the persuasive testimony of ex-CIA boss David Petraeus, it is clear the Obama administration made a deliberate decision to mislead Congress and the American people.

The repeated claim that the attack was spontaneous and grew out of a demonstration against an anti-Islam video — a claim made by the president and secretary of State as they stood next to the bodies of four dead Americans — was a monstrous lie. It was vile and done for the basest of reasons.

Because we now know the truth of what happened — CIA reports were edited to remove the names of al Qaeda groups involved in the attack, Petraeus said under oath — we also know the motive. It was political self-preservation, meaning the president and his team put politics first.

The timing helps tell the tale. Just days removed from his Charlotte convention, where he danced on the grave of Osama bin Laden and boasted that al Qaeda was decimated, Obama couldn’t bear to admit that affiliated groups were thriving in North Africa. And he certainly couldn’t admit they had carried out a murderous attack on our consulate on the 11th anniversary of the most awful day in American history.

To do so would be to acknowledge the failure of his decision to ignore hard-line Islamists and that his team had erred egregiously in rejecting pleas for more security from Libya Ambassador Chris Stevens.

So the president lied, including in a speech to the United Nations, where he cited the video as the reason for the attack. He sent out reams of flunkies to do the same, including his snide press secretary, Jay Carney.  (read more)

    Holder will hold everybody accountable, right after he finishes up the Fast & Furious prosecutions.

    If this was a Conservative POTUS and administration, blood would have been spilled and it would have been Watergate all over again. This is much worse than WG but the American public (the 47% or more ) does not care as long as their freebies keep rolling in.

    I fear Benghazigate will slip under the waves. We all must do what can to keep this on the front burner . Not on our watch!

    Once again, nothing we didn’t already know. The heroics of those willing to persist in holding up the flashlights, turning on the spotlights and exposing the lunacy of our domestic enemies are absolutely necessary–and Sundance stands tall among those getting the job done.

    But it makes me absolutely ill to consciously note–day after day–on Drudge, on Hot Air, on Ulsterman, on American Thinker, on World Net Daily, on….you name it–there is VERY LITTLE ACTUAL NEWS.

    The things we knew instinctively are being documented. The things we suspected based on early information are being confirmed. The patterns we worked out by extending the continuum of these liars’ behaviors and loyalties are being filled in, detail by detail.

    And all of that light does not change a single thing in terms of calling people to account, because those who are in a position to hold them accountable don’t care to.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a national scandal situation where so much light produced so little action. Our domestic enemies are running the country. I remember the days of Watergate clearly–waiting for the afternoon edition of the Los Angeles Times to hit the local Mom ‘n Pop stores in the San Fernando Valley…we’d buy the paper twice a day because we were desperate to see facts brought to the surface.

    The information and the light took Nixon out. Right now, we have far more information, far more light, far more exposed treachery, with names attached–with very little effect. Maybe I’m just being cynical. I don’t think so. So much information, and almost NO consequences to the traitors and incompetents. None, actually, that I can see. Gen. Petraeus’ shame doesn’t even count, in my book, as a “consequence” at this point. I want to see heads roll. And the people in charge of Rolling Heads Scheduling aren’t up to the job or just don’t want to do it.

    End of rant. Sorry. Winds in excess of 100 mph in western OR all day today. Why isn’t that called a hurricane? It specifically is not.

    • ottawa925 says:

      on your rant …. couldn’t agree with you more.

    • howie says:

      I gotta really bad feeling about all this. All hell might be gonna break loose soon.

      • I’m a lil worried that a U.N. small arms treaty is a stepping stone to disarming U.S. citizens, enabling Progressive Liberal Dems to eliminate the U.S.Constitution. I can picture Obama welcoming a U.N.Chinese/Russian force to occupy the USA. I can picture Obama giving the green light for them to go door to door, arresting anybody that doesn’t immediately cooperate. I imagine those FEMA Camps will be occupied to full capacity while Obama negotiates the demise of the U.S.Constitution. Obama truly is the anti-Christ! Israel is on the precipice of being invaded or nuked. Are we not 4-5 minutes from midnight?

        • doodahdaze says:

          He might be filling that role. If so then this is set in stone. If I try to look in to the future there is nothing there. I just feel like it is day to day at this point. It used to be I could make plans. Not anymore. I spend my time figuring out survival schemes.

    • boricuafudd says:

      Sharon, as much as it hurts me to say is not that the people in power don’t care to hold anyone accountable, it is the majority, however slim, in America don’t care. If they would something would happen, but they don’t. It didn’t happen to them, they are more concern with who will provide them with healthcare, phones, free tuition to college, or at least reduced cost, will modify or forgive their mortgages, will guaranty their kids will graduate from HS, even if it means lowering the requirements, in order words, someone who will take care of them. There is no more what can you do for your country, now it is what can your country give to you. We no longer owe the country, instead the country owes us, that is the problem. With Bill Clinton, it was just sex, with O, it does not matter he cares about us and he will provide for us. I pity the fools.

      • Sharon says:

        I guess I’m old-fashioned enough to think that people who hold authority also have responsibility and should also have accountability–and whether or not they fulfill their responsibilities should not be dependent on how many individuals in the country want them to.

        Hopelessly old-fashioned. :(

  4. Sam says:

    It’s very frustrating to have no one in Congress trying hard to bring some light and action to Benghazi. McCain and Graham don’t count for much since they are blowhards who like attention. Petraeus has lawyered up now with a very expensive lawyer who will probably shut down any further revelations from the general unless he has full immunity. Yes, I want to see heads roll too. Instead, the Republican cocktail party crowd is busy with the circular firing squad that always occupies them after a lost election. The Republican party is dead.

    Benghazi would have sunk any Republican president. Yet Obama’s off in Asia, merrily committing one faux pas after another.

    • ottawa925 says:

      Again, as with Sharon … I couldn’t agree more on why MORE in Congress isn’t doing anything … making more noise … shaking a stick … threatening something.

  5. jasondylan says:

    Right on. I follow NPR very closely and they did a whole week on how the attack was the fault of conservative Christians, Gnostics in Egypt and the U.S who put out the video to incite this anger.
    They literally blamed the attack on Christian American Evangelicals.

    Obama and his staff were constantly referring to the video as the cause of the riot, that it was spontaneous.

    Just like Holder and ‘Fast and Furious,’ the American people wont care as long as the Media Massages them and makes them feel good about helping everyone get a big bag of Rainbows.

    This is literally the case of the American Media and the White House blaming Christian Americans for a major terrorism event that Extremist Muslims were behind.

    How can this be? We would expect this in maybe Mexico or even Canada, but in the U.S., and in all levels of the mainstream press, way too far. This leads me to believe that there is a real concerted effort to demonize the conservative right, both the Religious Right and the Tea Party/Libertarian/Patriots.

    It seems like the only thing that can save you nowadays is God and Guns, ergo we must take them away.

    Do we really have a president who is promoting Islam, while demonizing Christianity without qualms?

    I have serious qualms man!

    Remember when Obama said that a certain group of Americans hide behind their guns and religion?

    • Sharon says:

      Do we really have a president who is promoting Islam, while demonizing Christianity without qualms?

      Yes. And we have had for almost four years.

      G. K. Chesterton – Defender of the Faith
      “What’s Wrong With The World” by G. K. Chesterton
      “The Unfinshed Temple”
      “…Of course, I mean that Catholicism was not tried; plenty of Catholics were tried, and found guilty. My point is that the world did not tire of the church’s ideal, but of its reality. Monasteries were impugned not for the chastity of monks, but for the unchastity of monks. Christianity was unpopular not because of the humility, but of the arrogance of Christians. Certainly, if the church failed it was largely through the churchmen. But at the same time hostile elements had certainly begun to end it long before it could have done its work. In the nature of things it needed a common scheme of life and thought in Europe. Yet the mediaeval system began to be broken to pieces intellectually, long before it showed the slightest hint of falling to pieces morally. The huge early heresies, like the Albigenses, had not the faintest excuse in moral superiority. And it is actually true that the Reformation began to tear Europe apart before the Catholic Church had had time to pull it together….
      …The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried….
      …The world is full of these unfulfilled ideas, these uncompleted temples. History does not consist of completed and crumbling ruins; rather it consists of half-built villas abandoned by a bankrupt-builder. This world is more like an unfinished suburb than a deserted cemetery.” – G. K. Chesterton

      • Sharon says:

        obama is so disgustingly deceived and is so twisted. He sets up straw men in the video above, as though things are being seriously considered that are not being considered.

        Then he proceeds to illustrate that he has almost no understanding of the Scriptures.

        Then he makes some statements about “democracy” that completely ignore the foundational principle of freedom of religion. And it is NOT “freedom of worship”–it’s “freedom of religion.” Very different and the distinction matters deeply. Then he says, “democracy being what it is” that everything has to be neutered down to be meaningless.

        “In a pluralistic society we have no choice” but to set aside the our beliefs…he says in the clip above.

        Well. He has declared himself my enemy. I declare myself his enemy.

        Any of you who hold general Christian principles including the trustworthiness of the Bible as “the Word of God” needs to listen to the cut offered here. Listen to what he says he thinks. He is our sworn enemy in matters of faith. He would like to tag it only to those crazy evangelical Christians, but that’s just a handy “narrow definition”….believe me, he means anyone who believes the Bible is the Word of God; he means all of those who hold to traditional Christian faith principles.

    This is just one of the facts about Islam that the left is quietly and continuously lying about in order to keep things under control.

  7. Icestation2 says:

    And therefore … the Obama administration proceeded to inflame the whole of the Middle East against America based on those lies, and further gave incredibly dangerous credence to Muslims everywhere that anyone in America defaming Mohammed was committing some sort of hate crime.

    I rarely ever see any of the above in news reports about the Benghazi scandal, including here at The Last Refuge. Unless someone fully points out the consequences of those lies, the lies have far less significance.

    • doodahdaze says:

      This is getting scary. Where is the GOP? They seem to be in cahoots with Obama. Obamacare is the law of the land? That alone will cause a depression. Now abandoning Israel and blackmailing them in favor of the terrorists? Scary is the word for it.

      • Sharon says:

        Yes, obamacare is the law of the land. If you have any relatives over 70, or if you are over 70 (as DH and I will both be before long) be aware that as of October 1, 2012, it IS the law that:

        Any hospital that readmits any old person within 30 days after a hospitalization release (for a reason related or unrelated) will be severely penalized, financially. Therefore, your local hospital will find it in their best interests (in hopes of keeping the doors open) to NOT admit Grandpa for treatment of temporarily out of control pneumonia, if he was in for 24 hours two weeks ago because of a broken wrist which he suffered when he fell. He has congestion now in his lungs that might be seriously relieved by IV infusions of antibiotics for 12 hours? Sorry. Hospital has to protect their ability to stay open…so he will be sent home with less help than he needs. It’s a wonderful thing, it is, this Obamacarethat’sthelawoftheland.

    I hope Amb. Rice is reminded of the statement she made on her trip to Libya one year ago on Nov. 21, 2011

    I’m waiting to see in writing from elected officials if “all necessary measures” were authorized to protect the Americans under attack in Benghazi on the evening of 9/11/2012 and into the early morning hours of 9/12/2012.

    Remarks by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, with Prime Minister Abdel Raheem al-Keeb, in Tripoli
    November 21, 2011

    http://usun.state.gov/briefing/statements/2011/177615.htm

    “…The United States was proud to play a decisive role in crafting the historic resolution to authorize “all necessary measures” to protect the Libyan people, and I was personally proud to cast my vote on behalf of the United States of America…”

    • Sharon says:

      I think their desire to protect the Libyan people (or claiming to–in order to justify what they had to do at the moment) was very different that their lack of desire to protect the Americans on the ground in Benghazi. I don’t think they gave a rip about protecting either group. The PR-motivational-statements had to be custom-designed in each case. Neither of which had anything to do with actually protecting human lives. These are the people who campaign endlessly for dismembering babies. The Death and Destruction Party.

  9. Mikado Cat says:

    Your average person has forgotten the movie story, and smoothly believes Obama said it was a terrorist attack in the Rose garden. No story before it even starts.

    Until the average person has that false notion erased, they will see everything else as a baseless attack on the dear leader.

    As usual we need to start by reframing the narrative. People lack the patience to be convinced Obama didn’t say terrorist, it would require listening to the entirety of several speeches, and I don’t see that kind of exposure let alone attention span happening. It will be easier and quicker to show the raw chain of events without accusation, show the salient facts and let each person decide for themselves.

    Baby steps, this is a car stuck in the snow, no traction. We need to slowly and carefully rock it back and forth a little until we are out of the disbelief hole we are in.

  10. Mikado Cat says:

    Honestly, I think the Libyan government was too shaky, and either asked or demanded that no troops or armed aircraft be used in Benghazi, and Obama agreed leaving the consulate poorly defended. The risk was underestimated, and the activity may have been critical enough to proceed even with the risk.

    When the attack occurred the initial phase was over before we could respond. That combined with maybe the false idea that ambassador Stevens was “safe” in the safe room.

    When the militants found the annex the whole mission may have seemed fubar, Libyan government still refusing to allow troops or armed aircraft, and the assault was now on a CIA operation, not a diplomatic facility. Libyan government may have “promised” to help, Obama may have believed the force from Tripoli would be sufficient and not delayed at the airport. By the final waves of the attack it was again too late to act, and/or may have been decided any real offensive action carried to much risk.

  11. Mikado Cat says:

    Maybe there is a group in the middle, including some, or most, in the media that know as much as anybody the details of what happened, know Obama lied saying it was a movie, but have decided not to allow the right to embarrass Obama. They may even approve of his choices not to risk an incident in a rescue attempt, and even approve of his lying to cover it up as politically necessary.

    This group will not be persuaded, and being knowledgeable will actively fight every step of the truth coming out, or sticking to Obama if it does come out. Any successful strategy with the general public will have to include working around this group. Discrediting them in the process, showing them as actively deceiving the public, would be good as well.
