The Benghazi Cover-up Continues

benghazi 1

Andrew McCarthy at National Review:

On Tuesday, Politico reported that the Justice Department had quietly dropped a criminal case against Marc Turi. He had been indicted by federal prosecutors in Phoenix for supplying arms to Libyan “rebels” during the 2010–11 civil war.

In that conflict, pursuant to Obama-administration policy that was spearheaded by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and backed by senior Republicans on Capitol Hill, the United States switched sides: turning against the regime of Moammar Qaddafi (notwithstanding that he had been supported by the U.S. government as a key anti-terrorism ally), and backing Islamists championed by the Muslim Brotherhood, whose ranks were threaded with al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists (i.e., the terrorists about whom Qaddafi had been providing our government with intelligence).

The administration dropped the criminal case on Tuesday, one day before a court-ordered deadline to disclose information about its efforts to arm Islamist rebels.

Turi’s lawyers had explained his defense to the court: His arms shipments, destined for the Libyan rebels and channeled through Qatar and the United Arab Emirates, were part of a U.S.-authorized effort. Turi further asserts that the Obama administration was subsequently complicit in the shipment of weapons from Libya to “rebels” in Syria, who are fighting the Assad regime.

This defense is consistent with public reporting that the administration has tried to downplay for years. The murder of four American officials, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, by al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, was the culmination of a series of terrorist attacks on Western targets. Islamists had been empowered by Qaddafi’s overthrow and armed with the Obama administration’s encouragement. The New York Times, for example, reported less than a month after the Benghazi massacre that “the Obama administration gave its blessing to arms shipments to Libyan rebels from Qatar last year, but American officials later grew alarmed as evidence grew that Qatar was turning some of the weapons over to Islamic militants.”

Moreover, as I have previously recounted, Mr. Stevens, prior to becoming ambassador, was the administration’s liaison with the Libyan “rebels,” including their jihadist factions. One of his contacts, Abdelhakim Belhadj, had been a leader of the al-Qaeda-affiliated Libyan Islamic Fighting Group before taking control of the Tripoli Military Council after Qaddafi was overthrown.

Belhadj coordinated a 400-ton weapons shipment from Benghazi to Syria through Turkey. The vessel carrying the weapons had docked in Turkey just five days before Stevens was killed. Although Benghazi was an extraordinarily dangerous place for Americans, the U.S. maintained State Department and CIA compounds there whose purposes have still not been explained. Despite the obvious danger on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, Stevens was at the compound that night and met with Turkey’s consul general just before the fatal jihadist siege. Immediately after Obama was reelected in November 2012, the Times of London reported that he was beginning to arm the Syrian “rebels” directly; but the administration had plainly been encouraging others to arm them prior to that.

99% of the attention given to the events in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 has been on the cover-up. Almost no attention has been given to what was being covered-up – the reason our people were in Benghazi in the first place. The congressional GOP has been complicit in this, most likely because they were aware of and had approved of the clandestine operations taking place in Libya and Syria.

The US government has engaged in numerous covert activities and “secret” wars around the globe since the end of WWII. Our success rate is abysmal. Even when we win (“Charlie Wilson’s War”) we lose (the creation of the Taliban and al Queda). And the worst part is these misadventures are only a secret to the American people. Nowadays even the media is part of the conspiracy.

The only way to hold Hillary Clinton accountable for the Benghazi Clusterfuck is to vote for Donald Trump.

    Who cares about Benghazi? The important story is that 11 years ago Trump made some lewd comments about a soap star to Billy Bush on a hot mic.

    IMO, the biggest thing that Obama and Hillary have in common is that their entire lives have been a cover up…both are frauds – yet Trump is the real con man…uh huh, sure, whatever.

    Emergency Alert: forget all those suspicious suicides, ambassadors left to die, women physically attacked and degraded and mentally and physically ambushed by power hungry spouses, treason actions and security breaches large enough for the HMS Titanic & Olympic to sail through side by side.

    Have these people ever listened to Hillary – she makes sailors blush and then have to lookup what 3/4 of the crude language she uses means because they have never heard such trash.

    • DeniseVB says:

      I’ve been listening to Hillary since 1992, and I can’t scrub myself of her sisty-ugly self.
      There was a reason she lost of Obama in ’08, for most of us, it was Sarah who made us leave the Dem Plantation.

        I guess these stories about Trump are supposed to make women vote for Hillary. They just make people turn off the “news”. But I do think it would be a good time for Trump to make a play for women voters. I’m not sure how, but nothing condescending like the Dems hyping abortion fear when abortion has been legal for 50 years.

    I just walked out back and saw the most awesome sky. dark grey , pink, red and here and there a small patch of blue where the quarter moon was shining.

    I wish I could paint

    • cynic says:

      Grab crayons, or colored pencils, or whatever, and try. We are blessed to be able to witness the most beautiful sunrises, and when my kids were little, I would have them sit at the dining room table, look out the French doors, take in the scene, and try to replicate what they saw on paper. Those mornings are memories, put to paper. I use those pictures as bookmarks, and when I take a book from my shelf, and I come across one of those surprises, I smile. Good memories all around.

      • helenk3 says:

        what a great idea. the memories have to be great

        • Constance says:

          Do get yourself some paints and try them out Helen. I paint every now and then although it is by now clear I have no talent, but I just love the process. I hadn’t done it in years and then my cousin took me to one of those wine and paint places and I got back to it. You might surprise yourself!

    • OLD JOKE:

      Jimmy Carter, Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton are on a yacht with their families when the boat hits something and begins to sink. The captain announces that they will have to abandon ship.

      “Women and children first!” says Jimmy Carter.

      “Fuck the women and children!” says Ted Kennedy.

      “Do we have time?” asks Bill Clinton.

    • Constance says:

      HA! that’s a good one.

  12. Scott Adams’ gf is a hottie:

    Two thumbs up.

    • It is after midnight and Kennedy and Dodd are just finishing up a long dinner in a private room on the first floor of the restaurant’s annex. They are drunk. Their dates, two very young blondes, leave the table to go to the bathroom. (The dates are drunk too. “They’d always get their girls very, very drunk,” says a former Brasserie waitress.) Betty Loh, who served the foursome, also leaves the room. Raymond Campet, the co-owner of La Brasserie, tells [waitress Carla] Gaviglio the senators want to see her.

      As Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. With Gaviglio on Dodd’s lap, Kennedy jumps on top and begins rubbing his genital area against hers, supporting his weight on the arms of the chair. As he is doing this, Loh enters the room. She and Gaviglio both scream, drawing one or two dishwashers. Startled, Kennedy leaps up. He laughs. Bruised, shaken and angry over what she considered a sexual assault, Gaviglio runs from the room. Kennedy, Dodd and their dates leave shortly thereafter, following a friendly argument between the senators over the check.

    WikiLeaks releases transcript of Goldman-Sachs speeches Calls Americans “Bucket of Losers”

    • Lulu says:

      Basket of deplorables and buckets of losers. She needs better writers to more elegantly convey her hatred and revulsion towards the trash. And old Blankfein (Heidi Cruz’s boss), that black hole of evil, didn’t want this shit to get out of the room. But the Hilary dummies put in emails. Oy. Notice her “business” speak like she knows squat about anything but scams. In getting to “the point” quickly she didn’t want to spend any more time than minimally required with the Goldy Sackers either. Her fees for spewing venom are just bribes.

      • DeniseVB says:

        She hates us, she really, really hates us. So what if Trump made some boy noises 11 years ago, Hillary will destroy her opposition critics worse than Obama has.

  15. DandyTIger says:

    What is Hillary’s fascination with buckets. Probably has something to do with Bill. And I probably don’t want to know. Good question for Trump to ask in the debate: Hillary, what’s with all the buckets? Did Bill make you wear a bucket over your head while he butt fucked you? Asking for a friend.

    • Lulu says:

      Bucket is a hick word. She is using it in the context of adding insult to “losers” or her idiot elite ignoranti staff writer thinks so anyway. I’m starting to think Bill didn’t pay ANY attention to her except when he needed to drop by to pick up a check and change his socks.

  16. DandyTIger says:

    So bottom line is a Trump leak showing he’s a sexist alpha male time. Already baked in. The problem is even today’s GOP love to virtue signal to the left (media, etc.). So they will overreact. All they and Trump need to do is, yeah, 11 years ago, locker room talk from an alpha male, that’s a bit of a sexist pig. So.

    • DandyTIger says:

      Or he and they could just respond: “What difference at this point does it make.”

      • Constance says:

        That works for me. What difference at this point does it make? Trump is out of the running for Saint but still qualified for any job held by Bill Clinton or Kennedy.

    All Donald has to do, or say, is that this happened before he n met his wife, and he learned from her and his daughter, and now he is a better man. Done.

  21. DandyTIger says:

    Best thing I’ve heard about Trump’s locker room grope fest, they were said when he was a Democrat.🙂

    • DandyTIger says:

      But make no mistake, the progs are trying to make this an all out war about “rape culture”. So even though his supporters are yawning and saying tell us something we don’t know, the progs / killary supporters are going batshit.

      Makes for an interesting challenge from the Trump team. How to handle. The progs and their fainting couches are so over the top it might be tempting to just make fun of them. Then again, he doesn’t want to lose any of the around 40% of the women vote he currently has.

    Big Pink weighs in:

    An atomic bomb before the second presidential debate just exploded inside #Hillary2016. Total devastation ensues. Donald J. Trump cannot possibly want more for Sunday. We hope Trump’s prep team knows how to exploit all the good news. Indeed, there is so much good news for Trump it is very difficult to fully focus on all the good news. Even the “bad” news for Trump, in light of history might very well turn out to be more “good” news. Let’s look at the alleged “bad” news first.

    The “bad” news is that as the nuclear bomb wiped out Hillary2016 Brooklyn hindquarters, at the same time a tape emerged from a decade ago with “locker room banter” of Trump with Billy Bush. Trump crudely assesses his love of women. The Hillary Clinton campaign will in desperation cling to this tape. Hillary Clinton has already tried to use the issue.

    Hillary Clinton ✔ @HillaryClinton
    This is horrific. We cannot allow this man to become president.

    Um, is this the dumbest response ever??? Doesn’t Hillary Clinton remember that in 1992 there were many “bimbo eruptions” with rape allegations, Gennifer Flowers in a press conference asked about Bill Clinton’s penis size and whether or not he used a condom when he penetrated her, with the result that a country desperate for CHANGE voted for Bill Clinton despite all the “bimbo eruptions“???

    Dumbest response ever!!!

    So this Billy Bush guy is a cousin of Jeb’ s, do I have that right?

    • lyn says:

      From WaPoop:

      Billy Bush is first cousins with former Florida governor Jeb Bush, who was favored to win the Republican nomination before Trump came along and started calling him “low-energy” and attacking him daily on the stump.

      That means Billy Bush is also first cousins with former president George W. Bush, who Trump has suggested is to blame for 9/11 and who started an Iraq War that Trump has labeled a disaster.

      And he’s a nephew of former president George H.W. Bush, who has reportedly said he will support Hillary Clinton over Trump, and former first lady Barbara Bush, who has said “I’m sick of” Trump and that she doesn’t know how women can vote for him.

  26. DandyTIger says:

    The talking points I’ve noticed from pretty much all my prog friends is: “I don’t know how any women can support Trump.” Clearly when they found this tape and decided about when to release it, they also designed their strategy and talking points around it. Namely shame and ridicule any women that support Trump.

    I suspect this was also a push back to some of the hits Hillary has been taking among women because of the older news (new to the kids) that’s been circulating lately about her treatment of Bill’s women. Something like this was needed to stop the bleeding perhaps.

    • Venus says:

      Unfortunately for the left they’ve been celebrating the “dirty words” used by Trump in that video (fuck, pussy) for so long now in every medium (popular music, tv shows, etc) that they just don’t have the shock value any more.

    • lyn says:

      I don’t see how any woman could vote for Hillary. She is out-guttering Trump.

  27. swanspirit says:

    Is it just me, or did the Over the Hillary Gang just shoot themselves in both feet? Now Donald can bring up Bill and his sexploits with impunity.

    • Lulu says:

      Yes. That is what I thought too. It is now open season on Bill and Hil. Trump went after “high value women” (actresses, models, socialites) and Bill raped low status women who he thought couldn’t fight back. I admit I don’t like Trump’s behavior, but as a woman who was approached, hit on, and propositioned quite a bit (in my prime and developed a smart mouth young to repulse it) I know which one I had rather had run into if I had no choice to avoid both. Trump took no for an answer and Bill didn’t especially with lower status women. Hil and Bill’s very strange relationship will now be examined again and nothing is off limits.

  28. Dora says:

    Since this campaign is already in the gutter, we might as well add a little more mud.

    Trump spoke crudely about a time he propositioned a girl and she rejected him and he respected her “no” because no means no.

    Meanwhile Hillary spent her whole life destroying the lives of rape victims to protect her husband’s career.

    I hope Trump has a few plants in there at the town hall tomorrow to ask Hillary all those questions. I know Hillary will have hers.
