“”I do believe that it is the obligation of all leaders in all countries to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism,” Obama said, placing a filmmaker in the U.S. on equal footing with those who had attacked America. Obama also equated insulting Muhammad with denying the Holocaust:
The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. But to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see in the images of Jesus Christ that are desecrated or churches that are destroyed, or the Holocaust that is denied.”
The attack on Benghazi, the first attack on US soil since 9/11 – happening on the anniversary of 9/11 – is a very big deal. If the full details do come out it could mean the end of the Obama administration. Even if they win the election subsequent investigations would show they knew and did nothing, hence negligence that lead to the death of four US diplomats.
1) That the administration was specifically warned about a pending attack on Benghazi.
2) That either because of incompetence, arrogance, or simply too busy campaigning to notice, they failed to secure Benghazi.
Now I have no doubts of the facts I’ve now been apprised of. I’m in the process of turning the evidence over to the House Intelligence Committee. The evidence isn’t just anonymous words, it is coming via people with the State Department and other intelligence agencies who spoken on the condition of anonymity that there was an advance knowledge of a pending attack and threat against the Benghazi consulate. As I wrote before, Amb. Stevens was much loved and respected and there are many of his colleagues that are genuinely mad, fed up and disgusted with what they feel is a cavalier attitude toward the middle east, a rush as some say to appease the Islamist in the region and Benghazi is simply the result of that incompetence.
As we learned though the journal of Amb. Stevens, he was aware of the heightened threat and concerned about what would be done about it. It’s evident that nothing was done. There could have been more guards, moreover Amb. Stevens and the three others would have not been in harms way if only minimal procedures had been adopted. There is much more and all of it is even now on it’s way to the committee via email.
Let’s hope that Rep. Mike Rogers follows up on it.
The Commander in Chief at Work!
