In Benghazi, Libya “Obama lied, people died.” That is the slogan that should dog this President for his actions–or lack thereof–during the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Now a Senate investigation shows that Obama could have prevented the attacks and saved those lives.

The Senate Intelligence Committee has finally released its report on the Benghazi attacks and it finds that Obama failed miserably to stop the attacks even though he and his subordinates could have.

The Senate Committee says the murderous attack on U.S. facilities in Libya could have been prevented and faults the State Department for failing to respond to the deteriorating security situation despite numerous warnings.

Benghazi Transcripts Prove Obama Lied That ‘Youtube Video’ Caused Benghazi Attacks

The phrase “Obama lied, people died” should ring out from every corner of the country now that we know 100% for sure that Obama knew full well that no “anti-Muslim Youtube video” caused the attacks in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans. Obama knew as it was happening that it was a terror attack but lied to America anyway.

Fox News recently uncovered a stash of documents that proves beyond doubt that Obama and his advisers knew just after the attacks began that it was terrorism.

Fox News correspondent James Rosen reported on January 14 that 450 pages of sworn testimony by America’s highest ranking military officers makes the case clearly about what the administration knew and when it was known.

Judge Jeanine Slams Obama for Ignoring Benghazi While Going Nuts Over Christie Bridge-Gate

Barack Obama is a total hypocrite. His ignoring Hillary Clinton’s criminal failure in Benghazi is typical, but even worse we see his administration going crazy to attack New Jersey Governor Christ Christie over his bridge incident. Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro really lashes Obama over these criminal failures.

Pirro took after Obama and his criminal administration during her opening statement for her January 11 show on Fox.

“Shame on YOU, Mr. President,” Pirro says.

Here are Pirro’s comments in full:

I hate traffic and I hate traffic jams.

I hate them because they slow me down. Slow is not my speed.

But what I hate even more is the hypocrisy of the Obama administration, especially when it comes to justice.

Slow would be the Obama administration speed.

One year and four months ago, four Americans, including our ambassador, were massacred in Benghazi. Weeks later the FBI shows up to investigate a trampled crime scene.

I don’t know about you, but I still haven’t seen anyone prosecuted or even in custody. But President Obama is going to get to the bottom of it. Right…

Liberal Radio Host Says Ambassador Stevens’ Death is His Own Fault

-By Warner Todd Huston

During a discussion of the 2012 terror attacks on our embassy facilities in Benghazi, Libya, left-wing radio host Leslie Marshall engaged in a bout of blaming the victim by saying Ambassador Stevens is essentially responsible for his own murder because it was his idea to be at the Benghazi facilities that terrible day.

During the discussion on Fox News’ America’s Newsroom on Sunday, October 27, Host Martha MacCallum invited The Tea Party News Network’s Scottie Nell Hughes along with liberal radio show host Leslie Marshall to talk about Obama’s failures in Libya that culminated in the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three American embassy staffers on September 11, 2012.

With a new 60 Minutes report on Benghazi aired on CBS, the discussion on what Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton knew and when they knew it is again making the rounds. The CBS report shows that Obama and Hillary knew that it was a terror attack even as the attacks were occurring. Despite this Obama and Hillary insisted for weeks afterward that the attacks were a reaction to some little seen anti-Muslim Youtube video.

CBS Proves Hillary Deliberately Lied About Benghazi

During the weekend’s broadcast of 60 Minutes, CBS’ Lara Logan interviewed the British-born security chief that was on the ground during the attacks at our facilities in Benghazi, Libya in 2012, attacks that ended up killing four embassy employees one of whom was our ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. During that interview we find out that Hillary delivered to the nation a series of deliberate, bald-faced lies about what she knew of the attacks.

Granted the 60 Minutes report did not mention the name Hillary Clinton–who was Secretary of State during the attacks–nor did it explicitly say that she deliberately lied to the nation in the aftermath of the attacks. But during the report we find out that Washington knew, even before it was happening, that the compound was about to be hit by a terrorist attack and that no Youtube video had anything to do with it all.

It was revealed that ambassador Stevens himself sent messages to the administration telling them that al Qaeda flags had been seen flying over various government buildings in Libya in the days before the attack. We also find out that al Qaeda itself had warned the USA that an attack was being planned.

Democrats on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee essentially spit on the graves of the four Americans killed during the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya when they refused to listen to the testimony of surviving family members of those slain and walked out of the hearing before these Americans were able to tell their stories.


Note the empty side of the room where the Democrats were sitting.

The hearing was held on September 19 on Capitol Hill.

MAJOR FAIL: Million Muslim March Draws Only a Few Hundred

We’ve been keeping an eye on the so-called Million Muslim March that was planned for today, the 12th anniversary of the attacks by Muslims on the USA on Sept. 11, 2001. Well, we can all laugh at them now as it looks like the march garnered a few hundred thousand less than the “million” Muslims they planned on hosting. In fact, only a handful bothered to show up.

The event seems to have garnered only about a hundred people which is a teeeny, tiny bit less than the “hundreds of thousands” that DC residents were warned were on the way to the nation’s capitol.

Amusingly, after a lot of backlash against their million terror-supporter march, the event coordinators tried a last minute renaming of the event. They decided to re-brand it the “Million American March Against Fear.”

The Only 4 State Dept. Officials Chastised for Benghazi Debacle Now Given Jobs Back, Full Pay!

Three of the only four Obama officials punished for the administration’s abject failure during the Benghazi attacks last year are now being given their jobs back.

Four Americans–including our Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens–were killed during the terror attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012, and in the immediate aftermath of the Obama administration’s horrible failure to keep our ambassador safe, four officials of the State Department were put on leave pending an investigation.

One, Eric Boswell, who was in charge of diplomatic security, resigned after he was put on leave pending an investigation. But the other three, Charlene Lamb, the deputy assistant security tasked with embassy security, as well as Scott Bultrowicz, the former director of diplomatic security, and Deputy Assistant Secretary Raymond Maxwell were all placed on leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

But now, New Secretary of State John Kerry has cleared all of them and given them their jobs back.

Worse, they were all still being paid during this whole one-year-long investigation.

CBS Reporter Sharyl Attkisson Reports She’s Been Shut Out By White House

-By Warner Todd Huston

The intrepid Sharyl Attkisson of CBS News has been one of the few reporters attempting to dig deep into controversial stories–and by controversial we mean stories that Obama would rather see go away. But after her work on Fast & Furious and Benghazi, she is now reporting that she’s been shut out of the information loop by the White House.

Attkisson was one of the few members of the progressive media establishment interested in covering the Fast & Furious scandal and has lately also been a bulldog looking into the Benghazi cover-up. She has been so far reaching in her work that she was dubbed a “persistent voice of media skepticism” by The Washington Post.

Her work got her praise and rumors that her boss, David Rhodes, may fire her for being too effective. Naturally, CBS boss Rhodes has a brother that is a close Obama adviser. Ben Rhodes, the CBS executive’s brother, also happens to be one of the operatives in the Obama administration directly involved in the Benghazi cover-up.

WaPo/ABC Poll: Obama Lying About Benghazi, IRS Targeting ‘Inappropriate,’ Media Still Distrusted

-By Warner Todd Huston

A new poll conducted jointly by The Washington Post and ABC News revealed some interesting trends. Among other findings, more Americans feel that Obama and his administration are lying about Benghazi, a majority feel that the IRS acted inappropriately by targeting conservative groups, and the media is still distrusted with a majority feeling that the Justice Department’s seizure of the AP’s phone records was justified. Despite all this disapproval, Obama’s approval rating is still just over 50 percent positive.

An important metric in the ABC/WashPost poll was the question of whether or not government is doing more to protect or threaten our rights. 54% felt that the government had become a threat to our rights while only 34% said that the government was acting properly to protect our rights. The American people’s faith in government is at low ebb.

This distrust is echoed when the poll turned to the specific cases of Benghazi and the IRS.

55% said that they feel that Obama is trying to cover up what happened during the terror attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012. Only 33% felt he was honestly disclosing what he knew.

VIDEO: White House Spins Obama’s Role in Benghazi: From Competence to Irrelevance

-By Helle Dale, The Heritage Foundation

With the weekend’s grand slam appearance on the Sunday talk shows by yet another official unqualified to talk about Benghazi, the Obama Administration has again shot itself in the foot.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer attempted to defend U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice’s mischaracterization of the Benghazi terrorist attack, which she blamed on the now infamous anti-Islam video. It was a poor show.

All of this stands in stark contrast with White House’s handling of the Navy SEAL Team Six raid that killed Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011. We have all seen the images of President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton huddled in the White House situation room with the national security staff, riveted to live images of the nighttime raid. It was hardly over before President Obama, speaking proudly as commander in chief, went on national television to announce the death of the enemy of the American people. The Administration even cooperated with the producers of the movie Zero Dark Thirty about the mission to kill bin Laden.

Gov’t Memo Proves CBS’s Sharyl Attkisson Got Benghazi Email Story Right

One of the earliest reporters revealing the internal emails about Benghazi exchanged between the U.S. Department of State and the intel community was CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson. Her original report was based on “written notes” and, as she said from the beginning, was not derived directly from the emails themselves. Despite this disclaimer, some called her reckless for her reporting. But in the end her reports are still quite close to the actual emails and shows she did not get the story wrong.

Attkisson was accused of not disclosing that her report was written from congressional insiders that gave her access to notes taken after they had been given access in Committee to the actual emails. To put to rest the accusations against Attkisson, Mediaite obtained an internal CBS memo that shows that she never claimed that her report was derived directly from the emails themselves.

When Attkisson handed in her original report on the email exchange, she clearly noted that her work was based on notes taken by her sources.

Note: *Emails were provided by the Administration to certain Congressional Committees for limited review. The Committees were not permitted to copy the emails, so they made handwritten notes. Therefore, parts of the quoted emails may be paraphrased.

This notation, however, did not make it to the May 10 story CBS posted to the web, nor was it pointed out on any of the CBS TV reports on the story.

No explanation was given for that lapse.

CNN’s Crowley Admits Obama Didn’t Call Benghazi a Terror Attack

On the May 19 broadcast of CNN’s State of the Union, host Candy Crowley said that Obama was late in identifying the attacks in Benghazi as terrorism quite contrary to what she said during the Presidential debates late last year.

As Crowley questioned White House spokesman Dan Pfeiffer, she pressed him on whether or not the President was aware of the Benghazi talking points being written and re-written by the Department of State and the intel community, re-writes that eventually eliminated any mention that the attacks were perpetrated by terrorists.

In reply, Pfeiffer blithely told Crowley that “no president” would get involved in writing talking points like that.

Crowley went on to point out that Obama was late in calling it terror saying, “in an interview on CBS–which we later learned after the election–but a week and a half after Susan Rice was on [the Sunday shows calling the attack a reaction to a Youtube video] he did say he wasn’t sure if it was a terrorist attack.”

Pfeiffer the somewhat quixotically replied that, “no one was sure at that point.”

Crowley countered that saying “well, no the president, first of all in Libya they were sure of it and the CIA seemed pretty sure of it!”

New State Dept. Spokesperson Gets Slammed Over Benghazi

-By Warner Todd Huston

It has been 8 months since the terrorist attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, Libya, attacks that ended up killing four Americans including our ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. Still we haven’t had a concrete explanation about this incident and new State Department spokesperson Jen Psaki didn’t do anything to alleviate that state of affairs as reporters peppered her with uncomfortable questions in her May 13 press briefing.

One exchange during the briefing between Psaki and a reporter named Brad (perhaps the AP’s Brad Klapper) was particularly sharp.

At one point, Psaki avers that the State Department was not privy to the 12-times re-written Benghazi talking points until after all the re-writes were done. The reporter was a bit incredulous at that noting that there is no proof for her blithe claim because her office is refusing to release the records to prove it.

What was Psaki’s reply? “All right. Well, you’ll have to take my word for it…”

“Absolutely not. I am still waiting to answers to just about everything,” she said.

AP Claims Official House Benghazi Hearings Just ‘GOP Hearing’

-By Warner Todd Huston

The Associated Press on Wednesday mischaracterized the Benghazi hearings as merely a Republican event even though it is an official House investigation.

In the headline of its report, the Associated Press downplayed the official hearings of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee–that has both Democrats and Republicans on it–into the failures surrounding the 2012 attacks on our embassy personnel in Benghazi, Libya. The AP characterized the official hearings as “GOP hearings” making the proceedings seem like a mere political witch-hunt.

The piece written by Donna Cassata was headlined, “GOP Benghazi hearing stokes political controversy.”

The hearing on Benghazi is not a “GOP hearing,” but is instead an official hearing of the House with representatives of both parties sitting at the head of the proceedings.

The bias in the piece doesn’t begin and end in the headline, either. Cassata does not report the hearings straight but goes on to put her opinion into the description of the day’s events.

Her fourth paragraph is a perfect example of that bias (my bold).

Slate: Claims of Benghazi Cover Up is ‘Pure Fiction’

-By Warner Todd Huston

As the Benghazi hearings begin anew on Capitol Hill on Wednesday, it is worth remembering that Dave Weigel of Slate.com, the former Journolist member who delights in attempting to debunk conservative narratives, declared in December that Republican suspicions of a Benghazi cover-up by the Obama administration were “pure fiction.”

Weigel cited the report on the Benghazi debacle issued by the State Department’s Accountability Review Board to argue that conservatives and Republicans are barking up the wrong tree with questions on the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans during the attacks on September 11, 2012.

Certainly Weigel is right to note that the State Dept. report doesn’t exactly jibe with many of the reports made during the early hours and days after the attacks by “conservative media, especially,” as Weigel puts it. It would be a minor miracle if they had, after all. Rarely do early reports of any conflagration fit the final facts.

And since Weigel drew his premature conclusions, the Accountability Review Board has itself come under review, partly, according to Fox News, for apparently failing to interview key witnesses to the attack.

In the days following the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya last year the Obama administration insisted the whole thing was a result of Muslim ire at an anti-Islam film posted to Youtube. Today, after Hillary testified in front of the Senate over her role in the debacle, White House spokesman Jay Carney is blasting Republicans for their “obsession” about the film.

During her testimony, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton continued to blame the Benghazi attack on “militants” and got agitated over a question from Republican Senator Ron Johnson (WI) who asked about why the administration illegitimately focused on the video for so long.

As Sen. Johnson tried to pin Clinton down on the issue, the Secretary raised her voice saying, “The fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

Buzzfeed: With Rice Out, Benghazi Scandal Now Over?

-By Warner Todd Huston

U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice came before the American people and served up the untrue story that the attacks on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya that killed four Americans was the result of some Youtube video. This false story seems to have helped torpedo her chances of being the next Secretary of State as today Rice pulled her name out of the running for the position. But, does her pulling her name from consideration somehow “end” the Benghazi scandal? Buzzfeed thinks it does.

According to Buzzfeed’s Zeke Miller, Rice pulling herself out of contention for the nomination as Obama’s next Secretary of State “effectively caps a three-month administration scandal over the Benghazi terrorist attack.”

Miller goes on to say that because the Republicans found “the scalp they’ve been seeking,” why, the whole thing is basically over.

Over? So, all the lies, the deaths, the lack of support for our embassy and support personnel that were killed is now all erased simply because Rice quit her hunt for Sec. State and the GOP “got a scalp”?

Miller does note that Republicans are vowing to continue the investigation into the major failures at Benghazi, but he feels that it will now continue “without the bloodthirst.”

Of course, Miller is viewing the Benghazi massacre that Americans suffered as merely some political witch-hunt as all Democrats do. This is little else but an effort to give Obama a pass on his disastrous foreign policy failure by dismissing the whole Benghazi affair as nothing but mere politics.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice announced today that she was taking herself out of the running to be considered the next Secretary of State. To explain why she took herself out of the running, NBC’s Chuck Todd blamed it on “conservative advocacy media.” To Todd, it was nothing but a right-wing witch-hunt.

Todd appeared on MSNBC on Thursday and proclaimed that Rice was a victim because she didn’t have a “consulting team or a full PR team” at her disposal. I guess the White House wasn’t enough of a mega phone for her.

Todd basically claimed that Rice being lost to the President as a nominee for State was a conservative witch-hunt.

Assoc. Press Paints Murders in Benghazi as Merely a ‘PR Disaster’

In an outrageous attempt to defuse for President Obama the murderous disaster that is his security failures in Benghazi on September 11, the Associated Press deemed the whole debacle merely a “PR disaster” and speculated it could all just be forgotten if Susan Rice were to be successfully nominated as our next Secretary of State.

The White House could finally have its chance to close the books on its Benghazi public relations disaster, as key Republicans signal they might not stand in the way of U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to become the next secretary of state.

With such dismissive rhetoric, the AP seems to discount the death of Chris Stevens, our U.S. Ambassador to Libya, and several of his security staff all of whom were murdered by radical Islamists. Still, even the logic here makes no sense.

Is the AP saying that the ambassador’s brutal murder can just be forgotten if Susan Rice becomes Sec. of State? How does that even make sense? This claim makes as much sense as saying that Watergate should have been forgotten because Richard Nixon was successfully re-elected after perpetrating the break-in.

The AP next goes on to swallow whole the shaky explanation of why Susan Rice lied about what happened at Benghazi.

“What would we have done if FDR had not been our leader because he had an affair with Lucy Mercer? Think of the productive years that Clinton could have had if Monica Lewinsky hadn’t derailed them. We’ve got to figure out a way that we give a private sphere for our public leaders. We’re not gonna get the best people in public life if we don’t do that.”

Most Transparent President Ever Finally Has a Press Conference

-By Warner Todd Huston

Today at 1:30 PM, President Obama has deigned to hold an honest-to-goodness, question-taking press conference. I guess the President took to heart the plaintive plea of ABC’s Jake Tapper who asked Obama not to be a stranger as the Prez exited his last presser on August 20.

But that was just a walk on, guest shot, a surprise to the press. Obama’s last scheduled, solo press conference was all the way back on March 6.

Despite claiming that he’d be the most open, transparent president ever, Obama hasn’t been as forth coming with the Old Media establishment as other presidents. In fact, he’s been chided by the media since he first became president for keeping them at arm’s length.

The latest scolding Obama took over his shyness was in early in October when Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank looked up the numbers and noted that in the last four years, President Obama “has worked assiduously to avoid being questioned, maintaining a regal detachment from the media and other sources of dissent and skeptical inquiry.”

The video juxtaposes Obama’s claim in the debate against multiple televised statements by White House and Administration officials in subsequent days. It clearly shows that while the president now claims his Rose Garden speech called the Benghazi attack an “act of terror,” neither the White House press office nor Administration officials viewed that speech as an affirmation of terrorism in Benghazi.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice repeatedly referred to the “video” as cause of the attack in subsequent administration statements – with Carney specifically affirming that the White House HAD NOT called the Benghazi attack “terrorism” on September 20.

The Rice and Carney statements unambiguously show that Obama’s claim is misleading.
