Bombshell: CNN report suggests Benghazi coverup worse than previously thought [video]

Explosive new report via CNN’s “The Lead”:

Absolutely damning if true.

Is this still a “phony scandal,” President Obama?

GOP Rep. Frank Wolf suggests that potential whistleblowers have been subjected to intimidation:

In the aftermath of the attack, Wolf said he was contacted by people closely tied with CIA operatives and contractors who wanted to talk.

Then suddenly, there was silence.

“Initially they were not afraid to come forward. They wanted the opportunity, and they wanted to be subpoenaed, because if you’re subpoenaed, it sort of protects you, you’re forced to come before Congress. Now that’s all changed,” said Wolf.

All of this raises even more questions about the extent to which the White House went to keep the truth buried. What really happened in Benghazi?

This is frightening.

There is no excuse. None.


Kudos to “The Lead” for having the guts to go public with this report. We can only hope their bravery doesn’t come back to bite them.


Here’s CNN’s explosive report:

Full Twitchy coverage of Benghazi

  • Insubordinate

    At this point, what difference does it make? /sarc

    • stellatruman

      Sarcasm aside, that really does seem to be a valid question since NOTHING seems to stick when any hearings have taken place. We know it matters , but what will it take to see any justice ?

    • Joe Dokes

      None because nothing will be allowed to touch Obama himself. The media won’t cover it if it does and the Republicans will do anything to avoid being called racists.

      • rhetorical1

        Joe I pray you are wrong. We must never give up and keep the pressure on congress.

    • Teddi

      The CIA was in on this which is why they helped cover it up….

      Impeach now !

    • F. De Moraes

      The real question is when is the media going to admit that they hid all of this from the public in order to get “O” relected?

      • Karen99suds

        Where are the people we elected in Congress? Why can’t we detain this administration until we can hold a trial? Arrest them all now you cowards !!!!!

    • mschmidt48

      People need to keep reminding voters of Hillary’s statement and everyone should do everything they can possibly do (especially voting in the 2016 election) to keep Hillary from continuing the policies of the present administration into the next election cycle. It’s too bad Dr. Benjamin Carson probably wont be running against her.

    • Will

      thats what they want us to think….that attitude

  • Abiss

    Keep the pressure on boys and girls. Stand by the people doing the work. Be a voice, if even a small one. Demand answers at every turn, every townhall meeting, even the front door of your congress persons home if necessary. #nowheretohide

    • Elaine

      I still get upset when I hear them say there was not enough time to get help there. How would they know that? No one knew how long the attacks and the fire fight would last? They didn’t know who was dead or alive or how many Americans needed to be saved? Good thing those brave men ignored orders to stand down, or they’d all be dead! Clinton should have ordered help to get there ASAP. Why did they all ignore this attack? Was it planned to get hostages? What was going on in that facility? Too many questions left unanswered. Maybe that’s why they kept the ‘not really retired general’ from answering any questions? Time to find out about this phony scandal. Then move right on to the IRS.

      • jerseydave

        The first time I heard that the guys who were killed had been exposing themselves to illuminate the bad guys with a laser designator, I knew the official story we were getting was bunk.

        No one would expose themselves in that situation to put a laser on the target if they didn’t know someone was there who could put a weapon on that target. We’ve been told there were only unarmed drones, and no air assets, manned or unmanned, that were armed. If there were people who could have hit those designated targets and were ordered not to, that’s something we need to know.

      • Texan357

        “I still get upset when I hear them say there was not enough time to get help there. How would they know that?”

        Monday morning quarterbacking? Oh wait, that’s hindsight that exposes *error*. My mistake.

        • Elaine

          ERROR? Are you serious? All help was told to stand down? WHY would they ever do that so early on? That was no “error” that was intentional.

    • BlueGood

      Would O’Bama really threaten with the Gulag or worse, these 40 or so Americans to silence????

      How do you spell STALIN???….MAO????

      Btw…did CNN finally grow a conscience???

      • Alabama Mike

        Yes, he would.

      • objectivefactsmatter

        Well…he won’t call it the Gulag.

      • GW

        Jake Tapper has long been straying off the Democratic plantation. Sometimes, he still shows his liberal streak. But he has been known to commit random acts of journalism from time to time.

      • Possum

        No matter. I am so damn proud of these CNN people. FINALLY, Fox doesn’t have to stand alone on this ‘phony scandal’! Boo-Ya!!

    • Maxx

      For the love of God, this travesty of the truth should not be painted as a political issue. Get with the disgust Dems…

      None of those flag-draped caskets returning to Dover contained donkeys or elephants.

    • GrindingMills

      Here’s my opinion on Benghazi: First of all, I don’t think it was a State Department facility, I think it was a CIA office, and I think Ambassador Stevens was also a CIA operative. This would explain why the State Department didn’t close the annex when there was a threat, and it would also explain why their reaction was so goofy (because they needed to cover for the CIA.) Second, whatever the CIA was doing there was very secretive. This would explain why we basically know nothing about what actually happened, and why the 35 CIA agents aren’t talking. Third, because this was a clandestine operation, we will never know (at least in the near future) what work was being performed out of the office and what actually happened. Personally, I think some of the GOP has given up for this very reason. I think we should push for answers, but the more we learn, the CIA theory becomes more likely, and therefore the operation becomes more classified. I’m not clearing the administration of any wrong doing, but I’m just realistic as to what we will find out in the future.

      Edit: Here’s what I think is going to happen next: We will know nothing for the next 3 years, Hillary is going to run for president, the GOP is going to repeatedly slam her on Behghazi, and Obama will declassify the documents that clears Hillary and focuses on the CIA. That’s when we’ll find out what happened.

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

    This sounds like dynamite stuff, if true (probably is); can you say, “IMPEACHMENT WITH EXTREME PREJUDICE? Jawamax 8<{D}

    • jerseydave

      No, actually you can’t say that. (Just talking reality here.)

    • dotJenna

      Impeachment is not an option because our government is no longer ours. We have lost it and now it is a matter of time before we will have to fight. Period.

      • Possum

        Sad but true.
        I hope we get the chance if it comes to that. My guess is BHO would declare martial law, confiscate guns, and send tons of people to the mysterious FEMA detention camps. Google that if you dare.

      • Karen99suds

        AT least Egypt’s military has the balls to step in and overthrow its corrupt government. Where the hell is our military? Where are the good men to fight for our constitution from enemies domestic???

        • F. De Moraes

          There are millions of us that took the oath of enlistment that no longer wear the uniform.

          “I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God.”

          We need to come to the realization that the oath did not have an expiration. Just saying!

    • dotJenna

      As long as we are talking about him, he gets a head rush. The malignant narcissist loves to be loved or feared, just as long as thoughts of him are swirling round and round in your mind. He gets attention. It’s Narcissistic Supply. Obama needs attention like an addict needs heroin. He LOVES being hated, that’s why he keeps stirring the pot.

  • j p

    But how far ranging does this conspiracy radiate? I suspect this is nothing that can be removed surgically like a small tumor but has metastasized over many years to where the patient (our government) will fight before going through the trauma of the cure. Which is the main reason they want to take everyone’s guns away.

    • trixiewoobeans

      Well, it was big enough that they KNEW it would lose them the election if the truth came out. It radiates and has tentacles everywhere, like a Baracktopus

    • Clete Torres

      Fauxchohantas Feel-up! Film at Five!

    • dotJenna

      LOL – Good point!

  • Asok Asus

    Looks like the beginning of the Obammunist disinformation campaign to blame Benghazi on the CIA. Kills two birds with one stone: gets the blame off of Obama (and more importantly, Hillary) and hurts the CIA. One of those classic win-win situations for the Democrat/Progressive/Fascist/Marxist/Racist Party.

    • TitzyFritzensimmons

      Don’t forget, Petraeus was head of the CIA at that time. Anyone want to bet that his affair was well-known by the NSA and/or was a “honey pot” trap from the get-go?

      • redheadgrl

        and I wonder how useful the NSA “spying” was to turning up the emails that “uncovered” the affair? Makes me wonder what they found on Justice Roberts.

      • robcrawford2

        It’s immaterial who was in charge of the CIA or State at the time, because they both reported to one “man”.

        Just like it doesn’t matter who headed up the IRS and the FEC while they were conspiring to suppress conservative organizations during the 2012 election — they both reported to the same “man”.

    • wyntre

      Double Bingo.

  • sentry_99

    It’s obvious what happened. Fox News and the Koch Brothers have infiltrated CNN and turned them./s

    • wyntre

      Turned them in to who?

      • sentry_99

        I’m not ready to make the jump and say journalists based on this one act of journalism but…..

  • Brian Cates

    Can anybody get the link to work to Jake Tapper’s story on Bengahzi? Either the CNN server crashed or they took the page down.

    or it’s me. Which is it?

    • Clete Torres

      I’m in. It likely crashed.
      I’d cut/paste but Twitchy’d get itchy about it, I’m sure.

      • Rabid

        Twitchy’s link worked just fine for me. (08/2 00:05)

  • JackD

    CNN! Was there a poop ship in Libya or something? I thought after they walked in the consulate and found the murdered ambassador’s diary, they gave up on this story.

    • dotJenna

      Maybe they’re using it to their advantage. Anything CNN does is with an agenda… It makes me think there is some strategy going on. CNN talking about Benghazi??? Bizarre. And Fox did a piece on the “United Police States of America.” Hmmm

  • Clete Torres

    Could it be that actual journalism is being done at CNN?
    I’m skeptical, but will keep an open mind.

    • Jennifer

      The information isn”t all that shocking. CNN reporting it is.

      • ELC

        One has to wonder what happened to CNN?Were they taken over my aliens or maybe hit over their heads.? In all the time that Odumbo’s been President…they have never challenged anything he’s said or done. Now, they are coming out against o my…a new day is dawning. How long this will last is beyond me but I enjoy the experience in the moment.

        • wyntre

          No. This is the same old star struck CNN as before. Reporting on this OLD story now has been done for strategic purposes at the direction of the POS. We live in Pravda times. The only truth is on the blogs.

          • dotJenna


      • Clete Torres

        That’s what I mean.

      • wyntre


    • Michelle

      It’s one of those rare moments where CNN wants to be The First Kid on the Block more than they want to protect their Dear Leader.

      • wyntre

        They are not first on the block. This is OLD news.

      • dotJenna

        No. It’s some sort of strategy. Count on that.

    • fireandreamitchell

      It was rare journalism by CNN. Then the next hour Wolf Blitzer completely ignored the story.

    • wyntre

      No. The real journalism has been going on for the past year mostly at blog sites like this, Breitbart, WZ, HA, radio and Fox News.

      • dotJenna

        • GrindingMills

          You mean the state-run Russian news organization. I’m sure they’re not biased or anything…

  • Legal Immigrant in TX

    This is probably the reason why Obama is calling this “phony”. This is going to bite his butt… deep.

    • ELC

      I hope they take a big chunk out of his A$$.

      • wyntre

        Wishful thinking.

    • wyntre

      Nah. If CNN is now reporting on a year old story it’s because the POS gave them the green light.

      Just like they gave Lerner the go ahead to announce IRS irregularities at an obscure meeting.

      • dotJenna

        Agreed. It’s almost as if they’re trying to rub our faces in their corruption so we can see just how deep the stuff is we’re standing in.

  • ELC

    Who at CNN gave the ok to admit Benghazi is much worse than originally thought?This is a cable network that’s always been in Odumbo’s pockets…for them to come out and say that it must be a miracle. Barryboy is going to be sweating up a storm when he realizes he can’t sweep this one under the oval office rug for too keeps peaking out. What a guy, what a guy…our leader puts the diss in dysfunctional.

    • Michelle

      Their motives are strictly selfish. This is about to blow sky high and CNN is reporting it so they can be like that person in a comment section that would post, “First!”

      • The Penguin

        I’m thinking the same thing. They can’t “have seen the light” all of sudden.

        • Michelle

          Pfffft of course they haven’t. They’re not stupid. The media is well aware that once it comes dangerously close to no longer being able to protect their Dear Leader in a situation, their only option is to do an about face and try to grab the glory for being FIRST!

          • wyntre

            Except they’re a year late.

            But of course no one addicted to LSM knows that. Isn’t that depressing?

    • redheadgrl

      Or some strategical move by the white house to get the blame off Hillary….

    • dotJenna

      Maybe they’re trying to show that they’re not biased… Maybe they were getting flack from viewers or losing ratings? Maybe liberals were starting to question? Maybe our loud mouths on social media is what’s forcing them to start reporting what needs to be reported? Hmmm

  • steve_z1

    Obama is so weak & such a coward. Its about time for him to come out & say “there’s no ‘there’ there”. His proclamation we’re the most transparent admin is hilarious. There as transparent as lead.

  • The Penguin

    I don’t know…I’m skeptical. It is CNN after all. Might be a spin of some kind coming…I’m gonna hold out assuming this a wake-up call for now. But it would be nice.

    This would explain why Patraeus decided to fall on his “affair sword” and get out of the administration.

    So, this is no longer about a murdered ambassador, it’s about forty people!? My word! What really happened in Benghazi?

  • Tigerspike

    What are they doing? They’re protecting Hillary’s 2016 prospects.

    • Macranthunter

      But that doesn’t wash. This happened on her watch. If this story takes hold – and that’s a BIG if – Hillary is done. She’ll have no accountability and no credibility. It would be over.

      But I fully expect this to blow over.

      • Joe Dokes

        Yep. There are two things that will not be allowed to happen, no matter what else does: damage to Obama or damage to Hillary. If anything, be on the lookout for another transparently pre-fab scapegoat, but nothing more than that.

      • Tigerspike

        I totally agree with you. Her political career should be over. Unfortunately, the people that favor her politically are either apathetic towards accountability or low information voters. I imagine someone will be pushed to the forefront as scapegoat.

        • dotJenna

          The elections are rigged, and they own the press. Her political career is not over and neither is Obama’s.

  • Conrad2010

  • lazypadawan

    Jake Tapper better get the brakes in his car checked out.
    It’s obvious this was Fast And Furious II: Syrian Drift. Not only did the adminstration not want to look like national security failures on the eve of an election, they didn’t want the public to know they were running guns to the kind of “freedom fighters” who murder priests and belong to organizations affiliated with Muslim Brotherhood.
    If Obama and Co. are willing to sacrifice 30-40 Americans for their ends, they sure won’t blink at sacrificing you.

  • Joe Dokes

    Nothing will come of this. The press has only recently allowed itself (or has been allowed) to poke mild fun at Obama in a weak effort to humanize him, but they WILL NOT do anything or report on anything that could do actual damage to the legacy of America’s First Black President, which they helped cement. Between that and the cowards in the GOP, expect nothing.

    Am I the only person who read the Walid Shoebat (former Muslim Brotherhood member now peace activist) writeup on the Benghazi affair? If true (and he provides links to all of his corroborating evidence), it explains EVERYTHING. Everything falls into place. All of these “what are we covering up” questions are answered. Even these new CNN developments make total sense in light of Walid’s piece.


    It will explode your head, and certainly clear up some of those questions you have.

    Hope Obama didn’t set this up. I wouldn’t put it past him. Damning information leaked to CNN of all people. Obama denies. Finds two rogue CIA agents who had an ax to grind. Rumor is proved false. Obama blames Republicans and says, “see, I told you this was phony”.

Far from trying to win the war on Islam, they were fueling the enemy in that war. Wake up.

          And on that note, Sunshine, if you really think this administration wants to fight Islam, then that is just proof of how badly these scandals really need to come out. Whether Obama is, himself, Muslim or not, is irrelevant. Either way, he does not want to fight them, he wants to be their friend. And in case you haven’t been keeping score, THAT’S NOT GOOD FOR US.

    How many people who got to interview or question Benghazi Hillary would like a do-over after this CNN report? Would the House Committee insist she be under oath in the do-over as opposed to the free pass, no oath appearance she was granted?

  • Noneya

    Gun running Libyan arms to the Syrian AQ and now we are hearing that the US is selling arms to the Afgan AQ/Taliban. We are obviously being led at the very top of our government by a Muslim sympathizer. Why?

    Wake me up when will the presidential impeachment hearings begin? Until that happens our country is screwed.

    • Yes We Can’t

      how can this phony president be impeach? he is a illegal, you mean he must be investigated and arrested for Treason along with his Nazi regime.

  • Discontentwliars

    Do you suppose they’re trying to get all these “Non-Scandal” events out there before 2014? You know they were a “Long time ago”, so they shouldn’t make any difference now. Just because they lied, and continues to cover-up doesn’t mean that “Benghazi Hillary” (I like that name NixTyranny) won’t continue to blame it on a U-tube video. We all know how bad those are. Maybe “U-tube Hillary” fits a little better. Then we’ll have U-tube Hillary and twitter-weiner .

  • jdubya_az

    Wait! Something that did happen that may actually have had more people there than previously thought and no one in the Admin knows? Really?
    It has been almost a year now and this is coming out now? Really? Right in the time of the phony scandals?
    First it was the war on PBS.
    Then it was the war on women, with extra saucy binders.
    Time flies and now we have these phony scandals.
    What difference does it make? (Quoted by a famous phony scandal).

    Oh but this CAN’T be true… I heard it was “a phony scandal”.

      I have reached that point myself. How much more will it take for people to WAKE UP? A good portion of Americans seem to be in something akin to a drug induced stupor – with Obamaoma playing the role of the drug. Yet despite all that has happened (for which they would be at the White House gates with pitchforks and torches if it were a Republican) they continue to say “Thank you sir, may I please have another?” I am an eternal optimist but I unfortunately have been wondering lately if it is too late. Is it even possible to downsize this bloated corpse of a government?

    The hidden real truth about Benghazi 10-28-2012

    Based on information provided by my source and corroborated elsewhere,
    the official account by administration officials is a mosaic of lies
    that were necessary to cover the unpalatable truth of covert actions
    taking place in Libya, Syria, Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon. The primary
    objective of our covert actions was to secretly arm anti-Assad “rebels”
    in Syria by funneling arms from Libya to Syria via Turkey, with other
    destinations that included Jordan and Lebanon. Regarding the threat to
    Stevens and the other murdered Americans, the truth will reformat the
    persistent question posed to government officials, from UN Ambassador
    Susan Rice to White House Spokesman Jay Carney and others from “how
    could you not have known” to “how could you have done these things?”

  • Joe

  • yourmamatoo

    Nothing new here.
    The lame stream media thought they could cover for the campaigner in chief when they claimed Benghazi would go away, Oct 2012.
    This is not going away. And rightfully so.
    Hopefully Hillary and Obama will be brought up on charges for falsely accusing the attack on a video. And jailing an innocent man.

    They should be held accountable.

    • Yes We Can’t

      you are right, they should be held accountable and a lot more, these people are criminals and traitors. They belong in prison for the rest of their lives, this whole regime.

    First, and I can’t believe I’m saying this, is congratulations to CNN for some real investigative journalism . Secondly, I bet Carney starts the “well, you know CNN isn’t a REAL news network”, followed by putting tacks in their Whitehouse reporter’s chair in the briefing room. Later their taxes will be audited and Holder will open a civil rights investigation on them. They won’t be invited to any more cconference calls, that’s for sure.

    Obama PROMISED to have every event that he later described as “phony scandals” investigated and yet not a single one has been. Isn’t this itself proof of his coverups? Why isn’t anyone organizing protests in front of the White House to keep the topic of governmental misdeeds as high a news priority as it should be? Football season and the World Series will be here before you know it and with them the attention of the majority of Americans who care more about those than the fact that our so-called leaders are taking our country to hell in a hand basket.

    This is it…the only way to stop the bleeding is for the House to introduce Articles of Impeachment. This administration has spat on the Constitution long enough and, since Obama is the “Chief Executive,” he should be held responsible.

      Please No Impeachment, Obama is a phony!!!! he does not qualify to be janitor of the white house let alone president. He is a illegal, he needs to be investigated and tried for Treason.

  • theslowrider

    Clinton and Panetta have 4 dead on their hands, two they could have saved. Obama’s total is now somewhere between 254 and 1500 in just Benghazi and Fast and Furious alone! If that’s not a crime, then there is no justice in America.

    Can you imagine the melt-down squealing going on in the NBC & CNN boardrooms right now?

    NBC announced they’re doing (what we all know is) a fawning “Hillary” mini-series. CNN announced they’re doing a “Hillary” docudrama/ fake expose/ or whatever you wanna call it.

    More on Benghazi – From a Former Muslim Brotherhood Member

    Dr. Mark Christian, an obstetrician/gynecologist by profession, was destined to become a Sunni religious leader in Egypt. Mark was groomed from boyhood to become an influential leader of the Muslim faith. He later converted to Christianity and moved to America. Mark now hopes to educate a sleeping American public to the actuality of Islamic intention in this country.

    Dr. Mark Christian from the Global Faith Institute sent The Gateway Pundit his account of the Benghazi attack on September 11, 2012:

    Syrian president Bashar el Assad, Russia, Iran, and Hezbollah of Lebanon are fully responsible for the death of United States Ambassador Christopher Stevens. President Obama has known this fact since the minute he first learned about the attack.

    Stevens, from his Benghazi base, was stockpiling weapons – and resourcing the expert fighters who could use them – to topple Assad’s rule in Syria. On September 11, 2012, Assad powerfully punched back, raiding the Benghazi compound which housed the armament for his own destruction. Though Assad’s reprisal resulted in the loss of four American lives, including Stevens, he forcefully conveyed that he would not be thrown out of the ring.

    The Syrian uprising is not a simple “the good guys vs. the bad guys” action-packed conflict. While there is plenty of action, there are no good guys. There are, however, two opponents who have been duking it out for hundreds of years, the Sunnis and the Shiites. In the Sunni corner, we have U.S. President Barack Obama, championed primarily by Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and Egypt. Their combatants, the Shiites, include Syria, Iran, and Hezbollah – the Lebanese militia controlled by Iran and Syria.

    Under President Barack Obama’s direction in the 2011 Arab Spring, the Sunnis had already ousted evil dictators from countries such as Egypt, Tunisia, and Libya. It appeared to be pro-democracy freedom-fighting at its finest. It wasn’t. The overthrown governments were quickly replaced with Muslim-Brotherhood-aligned, Sunni Islamic theocracies. And the next country on the list for overthrow was Syria. But unlike the easier targets of Mubarek, Ben Ali, and Gaddafi, Shiite Syrian leader Bashar Assad has the powerful allies of Iran, Hezbollah, and Russia.

    The Assad regime was fully aware of the shrouded activity in Benghazi, fully aware that Ambassador Christopher Stevens, the man credited for the assassination of Gaddafi, was much more than an ambassador. Though serving in Tripoli as the U.S. Ambassador to transition a tribal Libya to Sunni Islamic rule, Stevens covertly used Benghazi as his base of operation for the next phase of Arab Spring: overthrowing Assad in Syria. From his Benghazi compound Stevens stored and supplied weapons for thousands of hired, rebel fighters – many of which were al-Qaeda – headed to Syria.

    In August, 2012, team Sunni provoked team Shiite on their home turf in Tehran at the Non-Alignment Movement Summit. After making several diplomatic attempts to end the illicit smuggling of guns and gunners by Obama and the Sunnis into Syria, Iran became insulted when Egyptian President Morsi demanded removal of Syrian President Assad. Following this ultimatum, Morsi arrogantly snubbed the fundamental Shiite beliefs held by Iranian President Ahmadinejad and spiritual leader, Ayatollah Khamenei. This was the last straw.

    The threatened Shiites forcefully and strategically retaliated by attacking the Benghazi compound. Why? They were seeking to expose the Sunni agenda of President Barack Obama to the American electorate during Obama’s re-election campaign, Iran was confident that this bold retribution would prevent Obama’s second presidential term, and squash the Sunni initiative in Syria.

    On the morning of September 11, 2012, Christopher Stevens and his aide, Sean Smith, were meeting at the Benghazi headquarters with Turkish Consul General, Ali Sait Akin, and his associates. Turkey was the staging ground through which the Syria-bound guns and rebels were smuggled. Thirty-four additional Syrian opposition supporters were also in attendance. Shortly after Mr. Akin & Co. made a substantial “financial contribution” and left, the compound was struck by a highly-organized assault by Hezbollah fighters. The eyes of the Middle East, as well as any online observer of Libyan and Middle Eastern press, watched the brazen attack on Benghazi…

    …If Americans knew what really happened, if the mainstream media uncovered and exposed Obama and his Sunni agenda, Obama would not be the current American president, but a prosecuted American citizen. If his orchestration and support of Arab Spring, including Syria, was revealed, President Obama, who has hidden much more than Benghazi from the American people, would finally be held accountable for his actions. If it became public knowledge that – while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was ignoring the body of her American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, she was ordering that all of Stevens’ classified information in Tripoli be destroyed – then Ms. Clinton’s presidential aspirations might be imprisoned. And the families of Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty would definitively know what difference it does make when the daylight of truth shines on the darkness of night.

    Eye-witnesses, including the thirty-four various nationals who participated in Stevens’ meeting on the morning of September 11, 2012, could provide testimony exponentially more illuminating than the scripted smoke of the one-day Congressional performance of Benghazi whistle blowers. However, their interest in exposing the truth, and their whereabouts, is extremely unlikely since they were undoubtedly complicit with the Sunni scheme.

    But Benghazi was just the beginning. Assad and his gang continue to target countries supporting the Syrian uprising.

    Were these attacks just isolated events or part of a coordinated plan?
    *On April 15, 2013, two bombs exploded during the Boston Marathon in America.
    *Two Iranian-linked terrorists were apprehended just days following the Boston bombing when their plan to derail a Canadian passenger train in Toronto was thwarted.
    *A car bomb injured two guards at the French Embassy in Tripoli on April 23, 2013; France financially supported the Syrian opposition.
    *British Prime Minister Cameron met with Russian President Putin on May 10, 2013, and with President Obama on May 13, 2013. On May 22, 2013, a British soldier was publically beheaded by terrorists.
    *Dozens are killed from a car bomb near the Syrian border in Reyhanli, Turkey on May 11, 2013.
    *President Obama and Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan meet on May 16, 2013 followed by violent riots in Istanbul, where bombings as recent as June 5, 2013 have occurred.

    As tensions between Israel and Syria intensify, as Syria is purported to have received its first shipment of $300 anti-aircraft missiles from Russia, all the key players are keenly conscious that an attack against Syria, the dominant subject of the upcoming Geneva talks, is an attack against Russia. The stakes are shockingly high, and there is no indication of either faction, Sunni or Shiite, backing down. Meanwhile, as the controlled and calculated fires of IRS and the Associated Press capture the American attention, keeping them distracted and clueless, a catastrophic wildfire awaits. World War III could readily ignite, and the Benghazi blazes were simply the match.

    Also, it has to obviously be pointed out to you that those 4 dead were killed because Obama and Hillary decided politics was more important than keeping those men safe. They lied about what happened and tried to cover-up that it was an attack. They lied and blamed it on a video. The 5,000 you talk about are soldiers killed in battle. It’s still sad, but those men knew what they signed up for. They weren’t left to die and then had a corrupt scumbag try to cover it up like the men killed in Benghazi.
