Benghazigate

His ears must have been burning

Brett Baier's, I mean.  I no sooner said a couple of posts ago that his Benghazigate timeline was more than a couple of weeks old and that other things had been transpiring—hint, hint—than he updated it, in three parts.  Here you go, via Ace

RTFM

A common acronym in IT parlance.

And in other venues, like the State Department. Only there, slavish adherence to "the manual" leaves dead Americans in its wake.  At American Thinker:

Ms. Charlene Lamb from the State Department was identified before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee as the person most directly responsible for the rejection of multiple requests by the diplomatic mission in Libya for additional security personnel.  Quoting from the Committee transcript, Congressman Issa, Chairman of the Committee, during questioning said to Ms. Lamb,
 
ISSA: "Now the problem I have is that the State Department is basically saying Mr. Nordstrom didn't do his job, he didn't make a formal request for justification, the Ambassador didn't do his job, he didn't do a good enough case, and that is what you are standing behind here today in addition to saying "Well, there were five people there, therefore." An embassy, a compound owned by us and serving like a consulate was in fact breached less than 60 days before, approximately 60 days before the murder of the ambassador in that facility.  Isn't that true?"  

LAMB: "Sir, we had the correct number of assets in Benghazi at the time of 9/11 for what had been agreed upon." 
 
Issa's time had expired.  There were no follow up questions and there have been no requests for clarification from other sources.  The statement made by Ms. Lamb is quoted in most reports of the hearing and then ignored, but it is possibly the most revealing comment made by Ms. Lamb.  She had the correct number of assets in Benghazi...
 
...too many in decision making positions are incapable of making decisions.  

But they have a manual they can follow regardless of circumstances.  CYA.
 

 

 

Treason any way you look at it

Democrat Pat Caddell's comments begin about the 1:15 mark. This is not manufactured outrage:

What's all the buzz about?  In case you haven't been paying attention, here you go:

That timeline first aired over two weeks ago—other things have transpired since—but you get the idea.

Personally? I think we may be looking at a "Fast and Furious" style gunrunning operation in Libya—wherein we give guns to people who really don't like us—or a bungled "kidnapping" of the ambassador in order to appear to "save" him in exchange for the blind sheik...immediately before Election Day and so that our Islamophilic administration can continue to kiss up to people who really don't like us:

And our esteemed Vice President (keeping it classy, as always) said to the father of one of the Navy SEALs killed in the attack on our Benghazi consulate (sovereign territory, I remind you), "Did your son always have balls the size of cue balls?"

Bizarre and disgusting.
 
Have you seen much, or any, of this get covered by the MSM? Me neither. They're all complicit.  As Caddell pointed out (emphasis mine):
...This White House, this president, this vice president, the secretary of state...the leading mainstream media…they have become a threat, a fundamental threat to American democracy and the enemies of the American people.
And all this is with respect to only one aspect of our foreign policy.
 
What about domestic policy? Well, the President said at the end of the second debate
...I believe that the free enterprise system is the greatest engine of prosperity the world's ever known.
 
I believe in self-reliance and individual initiative and risk takers being rewarded...
Coulda fooled me. And I think there are some other folks who aren't fooled, either:
...The biggest dirty trick of all is fooling voters into thinking there is no difference. The huge voter surge in 2008 elected President Barack Obama, the first African American president. In the face of non-stop opposition, he pushed through:
+ Affordable Health Care..
 
...Many people wanted more. In 2010 they failed to turn out to vote. Tea Party Republicans won a sweep. President Obama---and all the rest of us--- have been fighting a defensive battle ever since...
 
...This is a fight by “We, the people!” against the secret minions of great wealth. The 99% of us are fighting back against the wealthy 1%...
These statements are from a GOTV flier published by—are you ready?—the Communist Party of the USA. For all intents and purposes, an Obama endorsement.
 
Can you imagine the CPUSA strongly favoring a genuine "free market guy," as the President has described himself numerous times? But the CPUSA wouldn't have any problem at all with some well-placed taqiyya that enabled a fellow traveler to attain a second term where he would have "more flexibility":
 

THROW. THEM. OUT.

VOTE ROMNEY-RYAN ON NOVEMBER 6TH.
