A commentor on this previous post stated “yes you are stupid . stop showing , and stop beating a dead horse .Benghazi is a not a issue .” Bad grammar and punctuation aside, I think you get Questionman’s point.
Hey Questionman, remember this?
This story from CBS News appeared on September 20, 2012, back when CBS, and every other LSM outlet, was buying this baloney.
Marked by the U.S. Embassy seal, advertisements condemning an anti-Islam video appeared on Pakistani television on Thursday in an apparent attempt to undercut anger against the United States, where the film was produced. Hundreds of youths, however, clashed with security officials as they tried in vain to reach the embassy in Islamabad amid anger in many countries over the film’s vulgar depiction of the Prophet Muhammad.
The advertisements appear to be an effort by the U.S. government to dampen chaos surrounding the film and undo some of the damage to America’s image in the Muslim world. Violence linked to the movie has left at least 30 people in seven countries dead, including the American ambassador to Libya.(emphasis mine) Two people have died in protests in Pakistan.
Now, CBS News realizes they were played. Of course, given the fact that the Libyan president said immediately after the Benghazi terrorist attack that it WAS NOT a spontaneous protest over a video that no one saw, you’d think they would have caught on a lot sooner. A six-year old knew that the story they sent Susan Rice out to recite was laughable. Perhaps you might learn a lesson from this experience, my sycophantic Jurassic media friends?
The lid is coming off this coverup. From a no-longer fooled CBS News:
The deputy of slain U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens has told congressional investigators that a team of Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi during the Sept. 11, 2012 attacks was forbidden from doing so by U.S. Special Operations Command South Africa.
The account from Gregory Hicks is in stark contrast to assertions from the Obama administration, which insisted that nobody was ever told to stand down and that all available resources were utilized. Hicks gave private testimony to congressional investigators last month in advance of his upcoming appearance at a congressional hearing Wednesday.
According to excerpts released Monday, Hicks told investigators that SOCAFRICA commander Lt. Col. Gibson and his team were on their way to board a C-130 from Tripoli for Benghazi prior to an attack on a second U.S. compound “when [Col. Gibson] got a phone call from SOCAFRICA which said, ‘you can’t go now, you don’t have the authority to go now.’ And so they missed the flight … They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it.”
More to come at Rep. Issa’s hearings the day after tomorrow. When will they learn. It’s not the crime. It’s the coverup.
One more point worth remembering. On October 22, 2012, the date of the last presidential debate, the villain of this story was not Hillary Clinton, who completely neglected her responsibility to protect our diplomats, nor her boss Barack Obama. It was Mitt Romney for daring to mention that fact. Check out some examples here, here and here.
