Forsaken in #Benghazi

When you accept a good man’s loyalty and service …

I can’t help wondering: did Ambassador Stevens die knowing he had been forsaken by his personal friend and boss whom he’d served loyally for four years? That he’d been given up to the enemy by the government he’d served all his life?

That they would lie about who killed him and why? That they would deny that they denied him any aid?

God rest your soul, Ambassador Stevens.

God have mercy on theirs.

… you owe him more than to be abandoned to this grisly death.

    The more I think about it, the more the “botched staged kidnapping” scenario seems to be the only one that fits the facts.
    I hope the GOP can get to the bottom of it.

  2. Constance says:

    I absolutely agree with you it was a botched staged kidnapping. I’m watching MSNBC and both Morning Joe and Chuck Todd are actually talking about yesterday’s Benghazi hearings. Yes, they are yapping about vast right wing conspiracy and they are pinning the whole debacle on Clinton NOT Obama, but they are no longer ignoring the issue and they called the whistle blower witnesses non political and very believable.

    • votermom says:

      I wonder why they did not at least admit to the kidnapping part.

      If Hillary & Obama said the next day – the Ambassador was kidnapped, they threatened to kill him if we sent anyone in, so we were trying to negotiate so we did not dare send a rescue.
      Then at least they could have said we made the call to try to negotiate, and he would have died anyway if we;d tried a rescue.
      That at least would have been more acceptable to most Americans, I think. The youtube thing was really bizarre.

      • Constance says:

        Clearly if their first instinct was to cover up what happened then something must have been planned (staged kidnapping) or happened that American voters would find unacceptable. I agree that Americans would understand terrorists kidnapped our Ambassador and attacked our embassy so why on earth they tried to cover that up or why they went with such a lame unbelievable story is just beyond me. No one but the half wits in media believed the You tube video crap. And why is the guy who made the video still in jail and why did Clinton and Obama record the apology to Islamists message? Also exactly who sent Rice out with that load of BS? They still aren’t to the bottom of this and at some point I expect the Clintonites to start feuding with the Obots over who gets blame.

        • Somebody says:

          Oh Constance I do hope you’re right. I want a front row seat for the battle between the Obots and Clintonbots!! Let’s all stock up on popcorn!

    • votermom says:

      • Constance says:

        Yeah, they knew who was attacking and they wanted to protect THEM. Which would also be why no one has been arrested. You would think they would a least round up a bunch of losers and hang them after a two minute trial then declare “mission accomplished” but they haven’t even done that. It has to have been state sponsored Egyptians who attacked, they were probably trying to kidnap the Ambassador to trade for the Blind Sheik, our government knew it and were in on it.

    • DeniseVB says:

      Some of the “rumors” flying out there are that Hillary did give approval for extra security at Stevens request, but was denied by Obama. Now that makes sense for a staged kidnapping plot, extra security would have thwarted that ? Two of the guys who died in the firefight came from another compound (CIA?) by disobeying orders to stand down.

      I think it’s time for a Special Prosecuter and subpoena the survivors who were there and not allowed to talk to anybody, ANYBODY !

      And who were those two witnesses who refused to appear before the committee? Subpoena their asses too.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    I may as well wrap my body in tinfoil, the Seal Team 6 families are speaking out today and holding the government culpable for the “deaths” of the team members. Apparently they’re still looking for closure too.

    The team should have NEVER been outted by this administration.

    John Boehner on tv
    wants all e-mails on Benghazi made public

  13. Constance says:

    With even MSNBC acknowledging that the Benghazi witnesses were credible and not political there has to be some Democrat weasels from either the Obot or Clintonite camps running around sweating today so I just wonder who it is that is sweating. I hope the Congressmen who are holding these hearings are watching. Since MSNBC is playing old video of Hillary talking of “vast right wing conspiracies” it’s probably the Clintonites who are sweating most. Or maybe the Obots put out the word to dump on Clinton to their lackeys at NBC.

    Trey Gowdy said this morning that there are more witnesses who will testify.
    He wouldn’t say how many, except “more than 2”

    Completely OT…….We had to call a plumber, he’s here and he looks like Marty Feldman. OMFG, it’s hard to look him in the eye and not stare and his weird bug eyes that go in different directions……but then you feel weird like you’re staring so you look down, it’s very odd.

    I didn’t think there was anybody else in the world with eyes like that

  19. swanspirit says:

    I don’t think there was a kidnapping planned . I think the Idiot in Chief and his SOS really tried to keep the military involvement to a minimum , and that there would be no consequences as dire as the Ambassador being killed .. Maybe a few soldiers would die , ( who cares about them ) but not the Ambassador. I think the cover up came when the consequences were more extreme than they anticipated . Either that , or Idiot in Chief was informed about the protests in Egypt , and conflated the two ; gave orders not to engage , and went back to bed , so he could be fresh for his trip to Las Vegas the next morning .

    • votermom says:

      That level of incompetence is scarier than a staged kidnapping.

    • Somebody says:

      Swan he wasn’t in bed when the initial attack happened it was afternoon DC time. He may well have conflated Egypt and Libya but he did so in broad daylight if he in fact did

      • swanspirit says:

        Perhaps that is where the problem “lies” . He was awake , and we still do not know where he was and what he did , or to whom he spoke . There is a reason for a curtain being in place covering these facts . He still went to bed before the situation was resolved , and did not cancel , or even delay his very important very high priority trip to Las Vegas

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yes, incompetence is scarier than a diabolical scheme from these mensa’s in charge of our national security. As it was so close to the election, it didn’t fit Obama’s narrative that “al-Q was on the run”. Hence the bad video maker upset the otherwise peaceful little demonstrators….with the machine guns.

      They lied, tried to cover it up, attacked Romney for his questions, they WON. End of story. 😀

      • cynic says:

        That’s my exact take. And, Obama can’t be seen going to LasVegas for a fundraiser after a terrorist attack.

    • Constance says:

      But you would think he would still be pissed that our men and property were attacked. Instead he seems to be protecting the people who carried out the attack. Seriously no one arrested after 8 months? You really would expect them to round up a bunch of losers, give them a 2 minute trial and hang them then declare “mission accomplished” Instead they make absolutely no effort to catch the perps. In fact they told our most lethal warriors to stand down so the perps wouldn’t get hurt. I think they identify with the perps not the murdered Americans. And how on earth could the President sleep through all this? I couldn’t sleep through it and I’m not responsible for it. What is he a Vulcan or something?

      • foxyladi14 says:

        He is something alright. 👿

      • swanspirit says:

        His only real concern was as DeniseVB implies, was WINNING the election , everything else was for show . No real concern for the victims or their families . They had this hurried up little ceremony when they brought the bodies back . I watched it , and I was thinking , If Obastard in Chief says a word about that damned video in front of these families I will throw up , and he did not . And then Hillary did .

    Guy Benson distills yesterday’s hearings into 12 revelations:

    (1) Career diplomat Gregory Hicks was ordered not to cooperate with Congressional investigators by Hillary Clinton’s Chief of Staff, a move that he said was unprecedented over 22 years of service.

    (2) Hicks went from hero to “effectively demoted” pariah once he started raising objections to the administration’s patently false talking points.

    (3) Sec. Clinton was personally informed that the assault was a terrorist attack as it unfolded. The YouTube video tale was a complete red herring, and a “non-event” in Libya. And top administration figures knew it — days before Sec. Rice’s infamous talk show rounds.

    (4) A small American fighting force in Tripoli was twice ordered to stand down as they prepared to deploy to Benghazi during the eight-hour attack. Who grounded them, and why, remain mysteries.

    (5) The State Department’s chief of security in Libya, Eric Nordstrom, testified that Sec. Clinton was “absolutely” aware of his team’s repeated requests for more security assets in the months leading up to the attack, all of which were denied.

    (6) Amb. Chris Stevens was in Benghazi on 9/11 at Clinton’s behest; she wanted to make the Benghazi compound a permanent diplomatic post.

    (7) Some of the Libyan guards at the consulate were “certainly complicit” in the attack.

    (8) Amb. Stevens was dragged to a hospital under the control of Ansar al-Sharia, the radical Islamist group primarily responsible for the attacks. US officials didn’t go to retrieve him because they believed they’d be walking into a trap.

    (9) The US government didn’t request permission to fly any aircraft into Libyan airspace during the attack, perhaps suggesting that no rescue mission was ever seriously considered, let alone triggered.

    (10) It was (again) definitively established that budget shortfalls had absolutely nothing to do with the lax security situation on the ground in Libya, despite claims from committee Democrats.

    (11) Whistle-blower Mark Thompson offered to testify before the administration’s internal (ARB) investigation, but was not invited to do so. The leaders of the ARB were invited to participate in House hearings, but they declined. Committee Democrats asserted the opposite of the truth in both cases.

    (12) Two whistle-blowers responded to Sec. Clinton’s infamous question about the administration’s bogus talking points, “what difference does it make?”

    • votermom says:

      Pretty much covers it!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Special Prosecuter time?

    • Here’s what doesn’t make sense to me — IF SOS Clinton was in fact sending Ambassador Stevens to Benghazi because she wanted/directed that the consulate become a permanent facility, then WHY would she not up the security to at least the minimum standard level for “global security standard for US diplomatic missions” ? And if it was her priority, then why did she not make the security of it her upmost concern? And why wouldn’t securing such facility and its people who were fighting for their lives for 10 approx hours be of utmost concern for you, with the end result of involving the CIC because of its supposed vital strategic importance?

      These are the most troubling issues and point me in the direction of tin foil hat conspiracy wearing. Something is definitely amiss.

      • myiq2xu says:

        Why did Stevens need to physically go to Benghazi? They were not closing the Tripoli embassy. Why not send one of his staff? And again, why not increase the security first?

        There is a piece of the puzzle still missing. I’m guessing it has to do with arms.

        What were the terrorists doing between the end of the attack on the consulate and the attack on the annex?

        • Somebody says:

          Raiding the weapon cache on the “consulate/diplomatic mission” property………stingers for everybody!

        • votermom says:

          What would require an ambassador to go to a place in person?
          Probably a negotiation of some kind.
          Whom with is the question.

        • HELENK says:

          best reason I have heard so far and no proof that it is true, to meet the Turkish Ambassador to arrange to transport of guns to Syria.

          the testimony that said that Hilary wanted a permanent counsulate there while other countries were pulling out makes no sense. The idea that the funds had to be spent before 9-30 and there was a two week vacancy makes no sense either

    • swanspirit says:

      The ARB also did not interview other people who were either in Tripoli or Benghazi and witnesses to the attack .

  21. DeniseVB says:

    Meanwhile, Obama still issues marching orders for his perpetual campaign …. ugh.

    Hey kids, thanks to Obama you get to stay on your parents’ insurance policy til you’re 26 ! Vote Democratic !

    • Didn’t most insurance policies already include child coverage through college attending years? And what we really have is the federal govt mandating the rule instead of it being voluntary compliance from health insurance companies.

      • DeniseVB says:

        It included my kids til they were 22 (through college?) in the 90’s-00’s. This is nothing new, except the “age” limit in ObamaWorld. 😉

    • Constance says:

      The thing is kids that age don’t worry about insurance. they mostly don’t have chronic illness yet and they think they are invincible from accidents. If they weren’t on their parents insurance they wouldn’t bother to buy insurance on their own so I don’t see this as being a vote motivator for the College age group. They do use birth control though so being for birth control coverage would likely sway voters in their 20s.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Funny story, and I’m well above college age, went to a Doc-In-The-Box for an acute ear infection, only to realize my military dependent’s i.d. card expired (for Tricare), they stamped me “uninsured” and charged me $35. The State of VA was sent the rest of the bill for over $300. For a 15 minute visit and a abx meds.

        Crazy, huh?

  24. Constance says:

    I’m dying to know who in DC or Chicago is sweating today. When MSNBC starts calling the whistle blowers non political and credible and playing old tape of Hillary talking about a “vast right wing conspiracy” you know the Obots a signaling that if the shit hits the fan they are pushing Hillary front and center. I also wonder what male Democrat is advancing his bid for the 2016 Presidential nomination to be anointed by Obama because they can’t win with Biden and they have to know that.

      They are happy to once again throw Hillary under the bus , as long as no one asks , WHERE THE FUCK WAS OBAMA ??? oops I asked . :O

    The president says he gave the general order that the military should do whatever necessary to protect our people.
    You’d think he’d be upset that someone in the chain of command gave at least two “stand down” orders. It would only take him about 20 minutes to find out who.
