Obama/Biden Know -- MSM is enemy of the People

It has been six weeks since our Ambassador and the other 3 Americans were murdered in Libya. It has been SIX WEEKS.

In 2001, within 4 weeks post-9-11 we were already bombing Afghanistan, bringing al-Qaeda to justice. Because we knew, and quickly.

This Administration watched the terrorist attack unfold in REAL TIME and did NOTHING. There is video-tape and audio-tape that is being suppressed by this Administration & worse, the Press is ignoring it. Let that sink in: the American Press corps is ignoring this story of National Security importance.

 See this searing indictment of the Main Stream Media.

The American Consulate was literally burning, 4 Americans had been brutally murdered and Obama goes to VEGAS!

In the weeks since this brutal terrorist attack, our president has partied, campaigned, dodged, blamed Youtube, stonewalled, said 'we're still investigating' (see opening sentences 1-2 above). AND the Media has been right behind him, in front of him, underneath him, deflecting, suppressing, side-stepping this Administration's response. Fox News Channel is the ONLY major media outlet that is investigating & reporting the story. The only one. See Colonel Ken Allard's assessment below:

ALLARD: Obama knew about the attack, ignored three requests for help
~Washington Times
The Benghazi debacle may yet make Mitt Romney president.

Barely 10 days before the election, the persistent whiff of scandal surrounding Barack Obama exploded into the banner headlines of a cover-up – at least among certain press outlets. Everything changed Friday afternoon with the stunning revelations by Fox News that CIA operatives defending the embattled consulate in Benghazi, Libya, called three times for emergency assistance while the attack was in progress. Each time, they were shamefully turned down. One of those defenders, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, was apparently able to use a laser designator to pin-point the location of the mortar that eventually killed him. It would have been an easy shot for American pilots had any been ordered to respond. Another new and critical detail: An American drone was overhead transmitting live video of the battle scene below.

Only days before, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton airily dismissed new revelations of incriminating emails, also uncovered by Fox. Yet those messages provided startling proof of how Washington decision-makers – from the Pentagon to the White House Situation Room – must have known within minutes or hours that the incident in Benghazi was 9/11.2, the second successful al Qaeda attack on American soil. They also would have known that this well-coordinated assault killed the American ambassador to Libya, as well as three other Americans who fought valiantly to save him.

With all this information – from frantic messages sent by operators on the ground to highly detailed overhead battle-scene video – who invented the asinine idea that the attack was collateral damage from a flash-mob reacting to a provocative video? The record there is incriminating. For weeks afterward, the administration party-line was that the video, not al Qaeda, was responsible for the disaster, a major point of President Obama’s September speech to the United Nations. But when that story had morphed into an indefensible fiction, the party line shifted again, memorably summarized by Vice President Joseph R. Biden, Jr. during his debate with Congressman Paul Ryan: “We didn’t know” because the intelligence establishment was still beavering away.

With all due respect, Mr. Vice President and Madam Secretary: You did know, and so did the horse-holders you rode in on. You also knew that the night-time battle in far-off Benghazi made mincemeat out of the prevailing Obama campaign narrative, “Osama is dead and General Motors is alive!” You realized too late that inconvenient questions were certain to be raised about embassy security in Libya. After all, hadn’t the Library of Congress raised just those questions in an unclassified study only a month before? Worse yet, you also recognized that, wanting to keep a low profile on the anniversary of September 11, no American forces had been placed on alert, despite the Libyan power vacuum.

So you concocted the next best and the most politically correct cover story: the flash-mob video. With unrest everywhere in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, the flash-mob story must have been seized upon with all the fervor of a drowning man grasping at oars – or straws. You could make all the right noises about deploring mob violence and anything critical of Islam. We’re the good guys, remember? To make sure everyone understood, you even sent out U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to spread the cover story on the usual TV talk shows. An ambassador is classically thought of as an honest man sent abroad to lie for his country. In her assigned role, Ms. Rice reached a new gender frontier right here at home.

What could go wrong, especially since the mainstream media was munching like well-fed bovines on anything White House spokesman Jay Carney obligingly dished out? Well, nothing, except that Americans had died at the hands of terrorists and our intelligence establishment knew the truth the Obama administration was trying so hard to conceal. With too many people in too many headquarters, the truth has an inconvenient way of leaking, especially when you’re dumb enough to blame those self-same spooks.

The president keeps trying to cover up his mistakes, and the press establishment is determined to look away, despite the cascading contradictions. Fortunately, Fox News, derided by the media establishment as Faux News, investigated what others ignored. And on a Friday afternoon, just when we were contemplating hurricanes, World Series and a deadlocked electoral race, they may have even changed American history.

The president must now answer for the misdeeds his subordinates and his media allies tried so hard to cover up. Col. Ken Allard, retired from the Army, is a former NBC News military analyst and author on national security issues.

This president must answer, indeed. We the People must insist on getting those answers. Then we must gather the fortitude to kick this disgraceful Administration out of Washington DC, and send their Media sycophants out with them.

Yeah! I've missed you!

OK, so much for celebrating.

I noticed that your linked article has not one single source. No links to websites. No copies of memos. No quotes except three words from Joe Biden but no quote from anyone who might know the slightest thing about anything regarding the issue. Not even a quote from the White House waiter who would be serving sandwiches and chips to the president in the situation room. The author is a retired colonel, network analyst and author with no know connections to anybody in the know.

"One of those defenders, Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods [the guy who disobeyed orders], was apparently able to use a laser designator to pin-point the location of the mortar that eventually killed him." According to whom?

The article includes a comparison of the killing of four people on Benghazi to the killing of nearly 3,000 people in New York City on 9/11. Seriously?

I read another thread that exposed the entire "scandal" that consisted of a transcript from the Rush Limbaugh show. HIS sources were "Doug from near San Antonio" and "John from somewhere in North Carolina".

It's amazing that you all know so much about what happened without being able to produce any memos, witnesses, or sources of any kinds.

Here is another version of events.

Susannah said...

Miss me, have you? I doubt it, but thanks for at least buttering me up before the talking points.

Whining about links/sources/audio/video is not my point -- but actually it is... There ARE sources/audio/video, etc that the Admin. refuses to release. About the facts contained therein, I'm not arguing. We don't know, entirely, BECAUSE the MSM has covered his Highness' a@@ yet again, failing in treason-esque proportions, to do their job. NOBODY in the MSM will INSIST that the Admin. answer even the softest 'hardball' lob. Nobody.

THAT's my point. I stand w/ Mr. Caddell.

Susannah said...

THAT's all you got? Minnesota Public Radio spot that makes us look like a bunch of pansies ringing our hands?

If you want to believe we could've done nothing, fine. I believe the finest military & some of the best Intell on the planet -- having 'laser' resources available within 1/2 hour -- could have done SOMETHING other than watch their own people be bludgeoned, shot & burned to death.

Good gosh, Jim. Pathetic.

Answers. DEMAND specific concrete answers --and the MSM fails.

Jim said...

OK, looks like ABC News, The Washington Post, The Mercury News, The Miami Herald, NBC and others are now reporting the story based on actual sources.

Looks like they took the time to get the story from people who know instead of people who guessed.

Susannah said...

Congratulations to them. They caved, finally, to shame.

Jim said...

They didn't cave. They waited until they had actual information to report on.

Susannah said...

"They waited..."


"They waited."

Journalists should be rife w/ investigative curiousity. Journalists don't "wait." They needle away until they find out the truth. "Waiting" is for lapdog sycophants looking for treats handed from their Masters.

One would have hoped that the major news outlets, save one, would still be turning out Bloodhounds. You know, Woodward & Bernstein types.

But no. We have a media that "waits" for the story to arrive at their feet.

I repeat: pathetic.

You're not winning this w/ me, Jim. Unless you have something original to say next, I'll delete your comments.

Delete your comments, yes Jim, a sure sign I've lost nothing but patience, & I'm in no mood for your "crap."
