Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,March 27th,2016

.. a couple of days ago , Brussels , Belgium joined the long list and the sad fraternity of cities and regions that have been struck by the cruelty and wanton barbarism of terrorism . These places did not choose to belong on THIS LIST > The bad guys did that . They are the ones that are dealing with the impact of the attacks ..

.. so the Belgians are going to have to strap it up , straighten up their faces , and move ahead with their own contribution to the War on Terrorism …

… What is the ObamaCrap White House thinking ?? [BenghaziGate] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,May 26th,2014

.. when they were playing cutesy – pie with YouTube over the video that they were attacking as the supposed ” cause ” of the attack on the consulate at Benghazi , Libya ?? …

.. you really have to wonder , at that point , what the White House was doing and thinking toying with YouTube ?? . YouTube will take a video down if it does not meet its rules . Also , like most any other content provider , it would do something for the nation , in terms of national security , if the situation is important enough . But , why at that point ??

.. that those idiots were already thinking and acting on this is grossly incriminating . Especially the timing ….

.. from HotAir …

The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is “Update on Response to actions – Libya.” The was written hours before the attack was over…

“White House is reaching out to U-Tube [sic] to advice ramification of the posting of the Pastor Jon video,” the e-mail reads, according to Issa.

Asked about the document, a senior White House official told ABC News it demonstrates that the White House genuinely believed the video sparked the attack all along, a belief that turned out to be incorrect…

Issa has an entirely different view. He contends the document contradicts the White House assertion that it was the CIA who first pinned blame for the attack on protests in response to the anti-Islamic video.

The “Pastor Jon video” is, I believe, a garbled reference to Pastor Terry Jones, who was publicizing the Mohammed movie to coincide with the anniversary of 9/11. But anyway: Does the e-mail prove the White House’s good faith by showing that the YouTube video was on their radar from the beginning and not something they cooked up to make Susan Rice’s spin that Sunday a bit easier? Or does it prove that the YouTube video did indeed come from a political outfit like the White House, not intelligence agents? Actually, you don’t need the new e-mail to ask that question. At 10:08 p.m. on the night of the attack, less than an hour after the e-mail was sent, the State Department issued this statement from Hillary Clinton:

I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.

This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his government’s full cooperation.

Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.

There’s no question that the video was on the White House’s radar from the beginning. The questions are (a) who put it there, the CIA or some political actor, and more importantly, (b) why was it still there three days later after information had begun flowing in that a jihadi group was behind the whole thing? The “spontaneous protest” theory was more durable than it should have been, it seems, to the point where it took weeks for Obama to start calling the attack an, er, attack. Figuring out why it was durable is one of Gowdy’s core tasks, along with that pesky government-suppressing-speech thing.
