Benghazi Debacle Demands Impeachment
The evidence is overwhelming that Barack Hussein Obama concocted an elaborate lie to conceal what really occurred on September 11, 2012 at our embassy in Benghazi, Libya. We knew it was bad. But it’s even worse than that.
In 2008, Hillary Clinton asked how Barack Obama would respond to a 3:00 AM phone call bringing news of an international crisis. We now know the answer.
He’ll go back to sleep.
Recently revealed White House emails prove that within 25 minutes of the start of the attack the White House knew that it was a premeditated terrorist attack. They watched video of the attack in real time. Within two hours, they knew who did it.
Barack Obama confessed that it was terrorism the next day in an interview with CBS News’ Steve Kroft. CBS chose to edit that segment out of its broadcast.
After that interval of tentative truthfulness, Team Obama shifted to an absurd lie blaming the murders on Libyan film critics upset over an obscure YouTube video. Three days after the attack, Obama’s mouthpiece, Jay Carney, told reporters that, “We have no evidence to suggest that it was a preplanned attack.”
Two days later, Obama’s ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, spread the lie on five Sunday morning talk shows.
The father of one of the two ex-Navy SEALS who were killed in the attack says that Hillary Clinton promised to, “make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted.”
The film maker is rotting in jail, denied a bail hearing until after the election.
We now know what they knew and when they knew it. Our Libyan CIA Station Chief told them. The embassy staff told them. The CIA begged for help. The request was denied.
They even knew the name of the organization executing the attack. One of our security personnel on the ground was “painting” the bad guys with an infrared laser designator. We have two Spectre gunships in the area that could have been on site within minutes, certainly within the hour. When combined with that laser designator, Spectre gunships could have poured invincible firepower down on the terrorists with pinpoint accuracy.
But the commander-in-chief’s sleep couldn’t be disturbed. He had a trip to Vegas planned for the next day! Request denied.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta tried to take the blame. But considering that Obama had to approve killing Somali pirates in 2009, it’s inconceivable that Panetta could have taken this decision himself.
Before the attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton requested increased security. Obama turned her down.
And it goes back even further than that.
The seeds of the Libyan disaster were sown during Obama’s “Arab Spring” debacle. Obama “led from behind” in the war that overthrew Libyan dictator Muammar Qadaffi. And while the world will not mourn Qadaffi’s passing, there was no plan in place for what comes next.
What came next was an ungoverned state. The Libyan “government” exerts no authority outside its offices. The weapons are in the hands of the Islamofascist militias.
Obama’s illegal war created another Somalia or Waziristan, wild lawless regions of the world where terrorists establish training bases and plan attacks with impunity.
And so there are other reasons why Obama would blame the attack on Muslims enraged by a video.
First of all, it conforms to the stereotype that most Americans have of Muslims. Secondly, it was needed to cover up strategic ineptitude in the months and years leading up to the attack.
A little remembered preamble to the Arab Spring dates back to the Bush Administration. George Bush quietly funded a number of pro-democracy organizations in the area. When Obama took office, he cut those funds. As a consequence, when the dictators fell, only the extremists had any organization on the ground.
Third, it exposes the childish wishful thinking of Obama’s foreign policy of apology and appeasement. To give you an idea of how this works, part of Obama’s plan for preparing Afghanistan for our eventual exit included refurbishing Mullah Omar’s mosque. Mullah Omar was Osama bin Laden’s puppet dictator in Afghanistan and is still at large.
The truth exposes Obama’s strategic and tactical ineptitude. No wonder the film maker is rotting in jail.
The generous explanation for Team Obama’s behavior blamed innocent stupidity. The emails vaporize that excuse. The anti-Islam video story was a cynical concoction to cover up years of ideologically driven incompetence.
