Benghazi: The Making of a Scandal

By Bobby Eberle

On Tuesday, U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice -- a key figure in the political cover-up that resulted in the murder of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya -- met with GOP senators to discuss her original ill-worded statements. The senators came away with more questions than answers (go figure), and the American people are left wondering why a president of the United States would put politics ahead of the very lives he swore to defend.

As noted in a report on Fox News, following the meeting with Rice, Republican senators left "feeling more confused and 'disturbed' than before the meeting."

"I'm significantly troubled by the answers we got and didn't get," said McCain, R-Ariz.

The lawmakers said the meeting covered questions about security at the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi before the Sept. 11 attacks, in which U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed, and about Rice's comments afterward.

Rice, U.S. envoy to the United Nations, went on network television five days after the attacks to say the strikes were "spontaneous" and seemed to grow out of a protest of an anti-Islamic video.

However, reports later revealed no evidence of a protest outside the Consulate, and U.S. intelligence officials later said the strike appeared to be a pre-planned terrorist attack.

Rice has maintained that she was using talking points provided to her from unclassified intelligence reports based on the best available information.

Of course there was no protest. Of course the murders were not the result of anger of an Internet video. We all know this. But what the media has refused to cover is why was this said? Why did Barack Obama go for weeks saying that the attack was spontaneous when it wasn't? Why did he send Susan Rice to the political shows to say it wasn't an act of terror when it was?

Sen. Lindsey Graham, who as at the meeting with Susan Rice, said Rice's comments were "disconnected from reality."

"I'm more disturbed now than I was before that the 16 September explanation of how four Americans died in Benghazi, Libya by Ambassador Rice," he told reporters. He argued that her comments, in which she erroneously suggested the violence may have resulted from spontaneous riots over an anti-Muslim video, were not only wrong in hindsight, but were also "disconnected from reality" based on information that was available at the time.

"If anybody had been looking at the threats coming out of Benghazi, Libya, it [would] jump out at you this was [an] Al-Qaeda storm in the making," he said. "I'm very disappointed in our intelligence community, they failed in many ways, but with a little bit of inquiry and curiosity I think it would be pretty clear that to explain this episode as related to a video that created a mob that turned into a riot was far afield."

 

After the meeting, the White House had a response as well. Believe it or not, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney actually told reporters that there are "no unanswered questions" regarding what happened with Susan Rice.

So... she got some bad talking points. That's their defense? In the presidential debate, Barack Obama implied (with the help of the moderator) that he said the Benghazi attack was terrorism from day 1. But for weeks afterward, he avoided the "terror" label, and instead pushed the Internet video story. If he "knew," then why did he keep promoting a false story? If he "knew," then did he have a different set of talking points than Rice? If so, why?

As noted on National Review, after the meeting with GOP senators, Susan Rice issued her own statement:

Rice: In the course of the meeting, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community, and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key aspect: there was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi. While, we certainly wish that we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. We stressed that neither I nor anyone else in the Administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the Administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved.

The report blasts the statement out of the water and includes facts such as a report by CBS News which states, " Rice was privy to both the talking points and the original assessment. The original assessment referred to the attack as an act of terror linked to al-Qaeda, yet Rice made no mention of terrorism or al-Qaeda when she appeared on five national talk shows."

The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama and his administration wanted the American people to think that they were all safe from terror. That Libya was now a peaceful country... that Obama had "gotten" bin Laden. A real act of terror, so close to the election, would surely not look good for the Obama team. So they covered it up. They put politics ahead of security, and four Americans died.

    “The fact of the matter is that Barack Obama and his administration wanted the American people to think that they were all safe from terror”

    Really?

    Which means he thought repeating the story over and over would be accepted without question?

    Wow! Right there is proof he is incompetent

    It is no wonder he cannot get the economy going, he finds it impossible to determine probable future outcomes from current events

    Which also would explain why he tried to stimulate the wrong thing with the stimulus package

    Then to hide his incompetency, he blames others

    This is bad. I previously believed he was just ignorant and a little education would help, now I see he is stupid and can do no better

    This is frightening

      I really don’t think that anyone will ever get to the heart of the matter…it will be swept under the carpet like everything else in this “Politicks As Usual” administration.This administration’s battle cry is – Whatever Lola wants Lola gets.

      >> now I see he is stupid and can do no better <<

      This is the same mischaracterization I've been arguing against since his original campaign for the presidency. This man has gotten everything he went after, from the bailout that stole money from stockholders and gave it to the unions to the socialization of large parts of our economy to the stimulus money to Obamacare to Supreme Court justices to ignoring the Constitution to re-election, yet you still call him "stupid." On the other side of the ledger, Republicans keep coming up short on their goals, so I guess that makes them brilliant. Get it through your heads, folks, he's a fascist/socialist hater of America and everything she once stood for, and his ultimate goal is her destruction. But stupid? Apparently not so much. If I could have the kind of successes Obama has had–and will have in the next four years, make no mistake about that, you could call me "stupid" all day long, wouldn't bother me a bit.

      Jota. BO is not incompetent. He knew exactly what he was doing. He knew the American people and the mainstream media will buy anything he says and will refuse to hold him accountable for anything and more importantly, that in the end, will attribute it all to just a partisan attack by the GOP. With BO, it’s Chicago politics all the way. And it’s amazing that BO and his people were able to get an honorable person like Petraeus and other people of the intelligence community to go along with their story. Extremely disturbing. Unfortunately this “scandal” will die out and will be swept under the rug just as BO’s marxist history and associations.

      But of course, he really knows how to run the economy, it is only by his mastery of it, unemployment was above 8 percent for forty-four months

      It was all a grand scheme and going as planned

      The Republicans do not have the Ba@#s to get to the truth. They will grandstand with smoke and mirrors but fail to finish the job.

      The Democrats will do nothing as they love their Messiah.

      The sad truth is neither party is concerned about the American People. They only care about their party, fighting with the opposite party and getting reelected.

      “Obama is not incompetent; he is malicous (sic) and evil” “it’s the American public who are dumb and stupid” – rosecoats

      Which begs the question, what chance did they stand against his evil genius?

      In this area of expertise, he is incompetent.

      It blew up in his face because he did not know what he is doing, and he cooked up the cover story because he is not smart enough to already have a cover story made up because he lacks the ability to foresee events

      He knows with a teleprompter, a winning smile and his charming ways, all the girls on “The View” just love having him over to tell them any story he wants, and hang on his every word

      The guy has been a slacker all his life, completely unfit for the job he now holds.

      If he had any skill he would not have needed to bribe the public to get their vote, he could have earned it if he had had the ability

      The GOP Problem is that they do not seem to grasp 3 important point in national politics.
      1. As Johnny Carson proved back in the early 1970s, the american people are the most gullible people that ever walked the face of the earth.
      2. Perception is more important than reality in politics.
      3. A lie told consistently and often enough becomes perceived as truth by the casual observer which probably includes at least 70% of the voters.

      The sad thing is…we can’t imagine a U.S. President committing acts that help to destroy America. I have read terms like:

      Clueless, incompetent, idiot, inexperienced, etc. He KNOWS exactly what he is doing. He is systematically installing “radical” islamist leadership in every middle-eastern country we are getting involved with. If he is allowed another 4 years, which it is a real possibility, every country in the region will fall under control of the Muslim brotherhood. With China and Russia lurking behind the scenes and Obama being complicit, the rest of the free world will not have the power to resist and will be in grave danger of succumbing to tyranny with little hope for escape. We will then be next. This bill current debated in the Senate will give the president the authority via the military to imprison any US citizen deemed a threat indefinitely without benefit of a trial. There are dozens of FEMA camps that are more akin to prisons than relief centers capable of containing over a million people, on stand-by, right here on our own soil. One word from the president and martial law is imposed, we lose the 2nd amendment and there is no freedom left anywhere on earth.

      Precedent has already been established for the extra-judicial killings of US citizens, just this year with the Awlaki killing.
      He has now implemented the “peaceful” (and I say this in sarcasm) Martial Law. He has more than a clue, he has a plan and the means to carry it out.

      I researched this after I heard the first report back in September. I had picked up the name of Benghazi in another article I had read earlier this summer but couldn’t find it. I looked at Libya for our consulate and found that the consulate is located in our embassy in Tripoli. This location in Benghazi was considered a “mission”. This was a location where shady dealings were going on. I doubt we’ll ever find out what really happened and why.

      “Eating rice cakes is like chewing on a foam coffee cup, only less filling.” Same applies to listening to Susan Rice speak about BenGhazi, Just as distasteful and much less filling.

      There is an old Chinese Proverb; ” Talk does not cook Rice.” But in this case, every time Rice talks she just cooks herself and the prevaricating administration she represents. Time for the Congress to make Rice pudding out of her self-destructive career. This dish is only fit for a Rice Krispy bake job and Congress needs to make a Crispy Critter out of her chances for Secretary of State, just like this administration make Crispy critters out of our Ambassador and Seal members who protected him.

If a man loves alcohol, he becomes an alcoholic, and degrades himself by pulling himself down by loving that which is beneath him. If an administration chooses to love deception which is beneath them, they also become degraded by that which they choose to love. This administration has become the personification of human moral degradation in all matters of governance. Is this what this nation and people have become? Is this what we now choose to edify and elect to become rulers over us. Look in the mirror America and what do you see???? A talking head with no integrity?

    Hmmmm …

    Live surveillance video from drones … Obama says he knew it was terrorist from day 1 (during the debate) … and yet she was fed erroneous talking points based on best available information.

    Logic alone tells us from these basic pieces of information, that we are dealing with liars or inept persons … likely some of both.

    And as to the whole “best available intel” … they are trying to paint our intel as being the scapegoat here. The very same intel that was the basis for finding Bin Laden, etc. that they heralded.

    Sorry, I’m not buying what they’re selling. Our Intel prowess didn’t suddenly put up the “out to lunch” sign, just so it would be convenient for Obama. He’s throwing everyone “under the bus” and playing the American people for the fool along the way.

      First, they were not smart enough to put two and two together to counter the attack then they completely underestimated the intellect of some of the American people

      Maybe, he does not get much practise working with any level of intelligence among those whom vote for him and should be excused for just being out of practise, or horror of horrors, he really is that stupid.

      Or maybe, that is why he failed to show up for the first debate because he is smart enough to know how stupid this whole thing makes him look, and why he confessed to it in the second, at least I hope so.

      Obozo has pulled off the con of all political cons in winning re-election. He will weasel out of the Libya mess as he slithers under a rock to cozy up with Reid, Pelosi and the other snakes hiding there.

      Obozo has stood on national TV and lied over and over again to the country and nothing will come of it. The Republitards are too timid and lazy to do what is called for and that is an impeachment which by the way should include Biden and Clinton. They too violated their oaths and are as guilty as their boss. This is an absolute insult to the families of the slain Americans and an insult to the Constitution.

      I am afraid this is the tip of the spear in terms of what will go on the next four years. This country is so screwed! I hope all the idiots that re-elected the fake-in-chief enjoy the spoils because that is all that will be left.

      You might find this interesting. He NEVER completed the Oath of Office. He made mistakes in it “3″ times; and they let it go figuring he was just nervous.
      Bottom Line? He never swore to protect the U.S. from foreign or domestic enemies.

      Rote ceremonial oaths mean nothing – and there is NO one to hold him accountable anyway. Congress – you jest, His own Department of (in)Justice – again you must be taking some idiot pills; the Supreme Court – he man – they get to wear those black robes and be “priestly” in their exorcism of the the Constitution – what do you expect from people who have a job for life.??

      It’s called being a “USER” Obama uses people, groups, religion, when he’s done with any of them, he owes them nothing. He did NOTHING for dark skinned American Citizens in the first four years, they all returned and gave him their vote one more time – they can expect the same result – he has no more use for them at all now unless, like Van Jones, they are toting his ideological party line.

      Number one: This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO DO WITH A FILM.
      Number two: It was meant to be a campaign success. He was going to trade the blind Sheikh for the Ambassador’s life believing he would appear to be the hero.
      The ambassador was the result of running another F&F that went very bad. Obama trusted inbred Muslims to go along with the trade and it backfired.
      All of those deaths are on HIS HEAD.

      P.S. Osama Bin Laden died 11 yrs ago. The only people who died were members of Seal Team Six. IF you doubt it, go to the Fox Archives, the UK’s Telegraph; and it is all there. Bin Laden had nothing to do with 9/11 even though it was blamed on him.

    As with everything that goes on in Washington, be it Republican or Democrat, the illusions keep going on as to what is really going on.

    There is much more to this Benghazi attack than what we are being told. According to a information revealed from sources that Glenn Beck has access to there was an operation underway to recover weapons that had been provided the Libyan rebels who overthrew Gaddafi. This was a CIA run operation and the Envoy who was killed was involved in negotiating with the rebels in possession of the weapons, who obviously did not want to surrender them. It was like a drug deal gone bad. Naturally, our idiots in Washington running the show panicked and hastily tried to cover up the whole affair with a phony coverstory which they continue to stick to. Now, because of their stupidity and not coming out with the real truth, there will most likely be Congressional hearings and we will be bored to tears with another Iran/Contra/Watergate-type scandal which will distract us again from something the powers that be really don’t want us to know. Like passing quickly legislation that takes away more of our freedoms and destroys our country. Like what happend after the Oklahoma City bombing (another False Flag operation) and the 9/11 attacks in 2001. Serious tyrannical legislation was passed that took away a lot of our freedom and moved us closer to being a totalitarian dictatorship.

    I find it rather ironic that they would stage this attack on us on 9/11. Rather symbolic don’t you think? Also, I think it rather ironic that something as simple and stupid as a little film about Mohammad would spark so many “spontaneous” rallys and demonstrations. Nothing on that magnatude is spontaneous. Those kind of demonstrations take lots of planning and motivation on the part of the leaders of those demonstrations. Who was really behind all that? Those are our enemies. Were they Muslims that sparked those demonstrations? Or, were they the same influences that pulled off the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon? And I don’t mean Al Queda or Osama Bin Laden and his related “terrorist” groups. They are part of the illusion. There has been more than enough evidence presented to lead us to assume that possibly those attacks were a “FALSE FLAG OPERATION” staged to make it look like a terrorist attack designed to make the American Public so mad that we would support a violent American military response that took us into Iraq and Afghanistan, and other places. Now granted, there is an Al Queda terrorist organization allied with other terrorist organizations and all of them are tied in one way or another with radical Islamist Fundamentalists like the Wahabis.
    And yes, they do terrorist acts. But I do not think, in light of the emerging evidence that the attacks on 9/11/2001 were staged by terrorists from Al Queda, or any other terrorist group. They were merely the scapegoat to get us mad so we would retaliate militarily in the way we did. Whoever staged this attack are the real enemies of civilization and especially the Muslims as a whole. The problem is how do you target those radical Islamic groups and not rile up the other, not so radical fundamentalist, Muslims. They all seem to have this attitude of sticking together when attacked. Kind of like us Americans.

    Just keep in mind that with our government, nothing is like it is reported by our controlled news media. When a big story like Benghazi breaks, just know that whatever is being reported is usually a lie that it is usually a distraction from something else going on, like the magician’s sleight of hand tactics. Wake up and smell the deception folks.

    For a better insight on what is going on you might want to get Glenn Beck’s book “The Overton Window”. It explains the tactics on how we are being manipulated by the “powers that be” that control us.

      “I” think that Obama is directly linked to the Taliban, even perhaps a covert member of that shadow government group. That the Taliban sometimes “seems” to work with al Qaeda – only because they can be useful – but there is enmity between those two groups – as between many power seeking Islamic groups – like the Muslim Brotherhood. I would go so far as to intimate that the Taliban set this up so that WE, the U.S., would attack al Qaeda in Libya and then they would be able to entrench themselves for their next battle with the Muslim Brotherhood for superiority.

      @ James: For some reason, I could not reply at the right place.
      The sad thing is…we can’t imagine a U.S. President committing acts that help to destroy America. I have read terms like:

      Clueless, incompetent, idiot, inexperienced, etc. He KNOWS exactly what he is doing. He is systematically installing “radical” islamist leadership in every middle-eastern country we are getting involved with. If he is allowed another 4 years, which it is a real possibility, every country in the region will fall under control of the Muslim brotherhood. With China and Russia lurking behind the scenes and Obama being complicit, the rest of the free world will not have the power to resist and will be in grave danger of succumbing to tyranny with little hope for escape. We will then be next. This bill current debated in the Senate will give the president the authority via the military to imprison any US citizen deemed a threat indefinitely without benefit of a trial. There are dozens of FEMA camps that are more akin to prisons than relief centers capable of containing over a million people, on stand-by, right here on our own soil. One word from the president and martial law is imposed, we lose the 2nd amendment and there is no freedom left anywhere on earth.

      Precedent has already been established for the extra-judicial killings of US citizens, just this year with the Awlaki killing.
      He has now implemented the “peaceful” (and I say this in sarcasm) Martial Law. He has more than a clue, he has a plan and the means to carry it out.

    In the first paragraph, you mention that Obama swore to protect American citizens. But we have no idea what he actually swore to do since he and John Roberts conspired to flub up the swearing in and move it behind closed doors, well AFTER the photo op with his hand on the Lincoln Bible. As a result, the public has no idea what bookhe put his hands on or if he swore to do anything at all except perhaps lie, cheat, and steal our every liberty and destroy our country.

    Obama was first supposed to repeat the clause “I, Barack Hussein Obama, do solemnly swear.” But instead, Roberts began to Obama interrupted before the “do solemnly swear” after which in an obviously staged flub up, Roberts made a supposed mistake in the next line, inserting the word “faithfully” out of order. Obama smiled, approving the staging then acted out a staged following along when Roberts acted out a garbled word in the next passage, before completely obliterating the part about “preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States.”

    So as far as we know Obama swore to nothing with his hand on the Bible or maybe a koran or a comic book. Nobody knows what he swore to or what he swore on. Who wants to bet we get a staged rerun of some sort in 2013?

    So far, he’s ordered he the murder of who knows how many Americans and made us the world’s assassins with the murder of Osama Bin Ladin who was never tried for found guilty abd if course we don’t even know if it was him since he was supposedly dumped in the ocean. Then there’s the voter fraud made obvious in the cities where not even One person voted for Romney. No one, even God, can claim that kind of popularity.
    We are living in a dictatorship now and it will only get worse. Through various illegal executive orders, Obama has set up himself as the lifetime dictator of our once free country and we will never be ablt to get rid of him. We can’t blame the liberals for voting him in. We can only blame them for approving voter fraud and election theft.

    Who cares – except for maybe 10% of people living in America – and we aren’t just counting citizens – but EVERYONE that lives in any of the fifty states or territories. This is all just talk. Nothing will come of it – Congress – the PERFECT representation of the people that live in the United States of America – Controlled by the Socialist Democrats and progressive Republicans could care less. It IS all talk – if it weren’t just talk – something would be being done besides talk. Republicans haven’t got the ***** to do more than talk – even those that purport to be conservative – or Obama would have been impeached by now and Eric Holders as well. Susan Rice would be out on her ear as would her mistress Hillary.

    Americans are looking for MONEY, their God – and it’s not just jobs that LESS than 20% of able bodied Americans don’t have. The cost of OVER PRICED housing is on the way back up, the Stock Market (that body that gives investors dividends on foreign made goods) is doing well, Greece is bailed out once more with money made of thin air ….. and I could continue. No one gives a **** what Obama does, who he is, what he represents, or where he came from. No one cares that FOUR Americans were killed, so what if one of them was an Ambassador – just another body on the pile of “who gives a brown ****”.

    Benghazi was nothing more than a CIA gun-running operation gone bad. The CIA is running the show militarily now and has been for a while. How soon everyone forgets Eisenhower’s warning about the Military-Industrial Complex who, with the blessings of FDR, drew our country into WWII with a contrived attack at Pearl Harbor that followed a 20-year-old script.

    As an example, one has to question why Ford converted one of its auto assembly plants to a bomber assembly plant six months before Pearl. They were turning out one bomber per hour at the height of production – yet we were not at war – or were we…

    The cover story about CIA Director Betrayus and his chickadee was fabricated long ago in case the deal went south. He’s a through and through Machiavellian. The four Americans were all CIA operatives. Two were told to stand down and disobeyed orders; resulting in them being killed along with Stevens and his aide.

    Of course the two were NOT going to stand down and they likely knew that no one would come to rescue them. Unfortunately they were right – but they chose to fight to the death as they had been brainwashed to behave. Machiavellians are so predictable.

    The mission was to supply Syrian revolutionaries with weapons to help overthrow the Assad regime. The CIA-led cover up is all about CYA – covering (one’s) a$$ – because we have become a nation of warmongers led by covert operatives who love playing war games – mainly because it is their livelihood and gives them their morning rush. Obozo goes along because he has been promised by the CIA that he and his family will live in comfort for the rest of their lives or for as long as he goes along with the program.

    Any talk of impeachment is foolish. The Dems retained the Senate through which impeachment trials are held. The House can only recommend impeachment, ergo, it dies in the House.

    End of story. Nothing will happen to Obozo. His tin soldiers will all take the fall for him, and for the CIA, and the US will keep meddling in the Middle East for as long as it wants to – just like a cat toying with a mouse.

    “The lawmakers said the meeting covered questions about security at the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex in Benghazi before the Sept. 11 attacks…”

    That’s interesting. Now we learn that what we thought was the “Consulate” in Benghazi, actually was NOT an official Consulate.

    Benghazi explained: Interview with an “Intelligence Insider”
    Administration is engaged in a massive cover-up

    http://www.canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/51346?utm_source=CFP+Mailout&utm_campaign=5153951421-Call_to_Champions&utm_medium=email

    “Before I answer that, I want to get a few things off my chest. Every politician, whether it’s a congressman senator, diplomat, or their spokespeople and the media are lying to the American public every time they call the location of the attack a consulate. It was not. There was absolutely no diplomatic consulate in Benghazi. None. Words are important here. They can create a wrong image, an incorrect picture of what was really going on. The property where our Ambassador and other Americans were murdered was a rented villa consisting of a primary residence with a couple of outbuildings behind the actual house. The reason they’re still calling it a consulate is to subtly divert any questions about our activities there.”

      Our government is a ONE Party system with two wings – the left, socialist democrat wing, is currently in control and it appears they will now retain that control into the future. The right wing, the establishment progressive republicans, has been marginalized and are essentially bottled up by the Senate; they will steadily lose power over the years as the “president” continues to rule by executive order because “congress does nothing.

      who really gives a rat’s butt about four stupid Americans that work in enemy territory, doing the CIA’s business that is probably against ALL international and US law.???

    Four Americans including our ambassador died for “politics”? This is a coverup that is epic treason. I can’t find the words I’m so angry.

Clinton had no conscience. And Clinton WAS impeached but never removed from office wo what good would impeaching him do? And what would be the reason?
