Where is the Benghazi media feeding frenzy?

With only 5 days to go before the big election, we are finding out that the U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens repeatedly asked for additional security as he and his team felt unsafe in a country that was going through a civil war and in an area where Al Qaeda knowingly operated.  We know that their requests were denied. 

As the New York Post points out, sources on the ground in Libya say they pleaded for support during the attack on the Benghazi consulate that led to the deaths of four Americans. They were allegedly told twice to "stand down." Worse, there are suggestions that significant military resources were available to counterattack, but requests for help were denied.

If true, the White House's concerted effort to blame the attack on a video crumbles, as do several other fraudulent claims. Yet, last Friday, the president boasted, "The minute I found out what was happening" in Benghazi, he ordered that everything possible be done to protect our personnel. That's either untrue, or he's being disobeyed on grave matters.

Shockingly, the media doesn't see this as news worthy and has determined that this is not relevant information for someone that wants to continue to be our Commander in Chief! 

Yet, In 2000, a Democratic operative orchestrated an "October surprise" attack on George W. Bush, revealing that 24 years earlier, he'd been arrested for drunken driving. The media went into a feeding frenzy and it dominated the headlines. 

It is amazing the lengths that the liberal media will go to shamelessly protect their candidate.
One thing is very clear, we must take it upon ourselves to cover the story that the media is ignoring and make sure that every voter in critical swing-states sees our 'Fire Obama' ad that makes the case of what a bad job President Obama has done as our Commander in Chief.  
The Romney/Ryan campaign needs your immediate support to bring these issues to light for voters since the mainstream media has largely ignored them.

As more details emerge as to what actually transpired when terrorists attacked  our consulate in Benghazi and murdered U.S. Ambassador Stevens, it is becoming increasingly clear that President Obama is not fit to be Commander-in-Chief.  The media is trying to bury this story so it will be up to us to shed light on it!
For the security and strength of our military, please support our 'Fire Obama' ad campaign.  We are running our ad in critical-swing states to impress upon voters how much of a disaster the Obama administration has been when it come to national security.

Months ago, national security was completely off the radar, the race was 100% about jobs and the economy. But as often times happens, we forget about how important national security is until another tragedy puts it right front and center again.

For Obama, it is a huge failure that ought to cost him the election!  He isn't fit to command our troops or keep our country safe!  Playing politics with our national security is wrong and dangerous to American security and the lives of our people overseas. It's time we put a stop to it and Fire Obama this November 6th!
Everyone who steps up and makes a contribution of $100 or more will be listed on our Wall of Great Patriots below to show our appreciation.  We realize that these are tough times, so if you can't afford the $100 challenge, every dollar helps!  Who will be the next to join the list in standing up for our troops?


With the events of the last month in Egypt, Libya and continuing in Syria and Iran we could no longer sit idly by while our military and national security is eroded by our Commander-in-Chief.  We can't sit on the sidelines while this administration apologizes to our enemies for our freedom of speech, refuses to stand with our ally Israel, and continues to "lead from behind."

The Romney/Ryan campaign has made this race a dead heat and needs our help by airing this powerful ad in the critical swing-states where they are battling for their political lives.

America has and always will lead from the front and should not apologize for our strength or influence in the world.  Obama sought to "reset" relations with the Muslim world, with Russia, with China, but this stance has emboldened those who wish to see our influence recede and worried those allies that count on the USA to be a beacon of light and hope in a dark world.

With the help of great patriots like yourself, we have produced a powerful ad that makes clear the difference between an America led by President Obama and his apologists or an America led by a leader that knows peace comes through strength. We are ready to reveal the ad but we need fund to run in critical swing-states! Please make a donation today!
Liberal Media are accessories to Benghazi coverup

For the sixth night in a row, ABC World News, CBS Evening News, and NBC Nightly News refused to give one single second of coverage to a Fox News report that the Obama Administration denied help to those attacked and killed by terrorists at the US consulate in Benghazi on September 11.

According to a Media Research Center analysis, ABC, CBS, and NBC have failed to cover this devastating story - not to confirm it, not to knock it down, and never mind do their own investigation. The story broke last Friday, long before Hurricane Sandy swamped the news cycle.

The story broke Tuesday night on CBS Evening News. Since then, according to a Media Research Center analysis, ABC has almost completely refused to report the email evidence, giving it a scant 25 seconds on Good Morning America and 20 seconds on World News yesterday.

Further, neither The Washington Post nor The New York Times has committed a single inch of their newspapers to a news story about this report.

According to Fox News, "sources claim officers at the nearby CIA annex in Benghazi were twice told to stand down when they requested to help those at the consulate.
They later ignored those orders. Fox News was also told that a subsequent request for back-up when the annex came under attack was denied as well.”

In response, I just released the following public statement.

"Every other broadcast news network has produced at least one major story on the release of emails related to the attack in Benghazi that killed our ambassador and three other brave Americans. While not enough, in some cases, it's something. From ABC News, it's nothing.

"The liberal ‘news' media's refusal to cover this story exposes how corrupt they have become.

Four Americans died in Libya in a coordinated terrorist attack on the anniversary of 9/11.

The Obama Administration has been caught in a maze of falsehoods. This reeks of a cover-up. This scandal could and would derail the Obama re-election efforts. ABC, CBS, NBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times are so vested in the re-election of Barack Obama that they are deliberately spiking this huge story. It's sickening.

How big is this story? Bigger than Watergate. No one was killed in that burglary, and no one covered up the truth about the deaths of four brave Americans.

"Now there are rumblings that one or more of these so-called news networks have emails from the National Security Advisor's office telling a counter-terrorism unit to stand down. If that's true, they must tell the American people what they know, and how long they've known it. And if it isn't true, then the networks need to say so. Their silence is deafening.

"The Obama administration's cover-up of their deceitful response to the Benghazi terrorist attack is without a doubt the biggest political news story of 2012. The American people have a right to know what really happened before they cast their ballots on Election Day.

"If ABC, CBS, NBC, The Washington Post, and The New York Times refuse to ask the tough questions, then they no longer serve any purpose. And if they're sitting on evidence to help Obama win re-election, they're as guilty in this cover-up as is the administration.”

Contents of Classified State Department cable illustrate why Huma Abedin should not be Hillary’s Deputy Chief of Staff

NOVEMBER 1, 2012

Fox News reporter Catherine Herridge has obtained a classified cable sent by Ambassador Christopher Stevens directly to “the office” of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on August 16th, just a few weeks prior to the attack in Benghazi. In this interview with Greta Van Susteren, Herridge pulls no punches and says flatly that “the State Department has culpability” in the attack and that the cable serves as “the smoking gun warning” because of its specificity, which included naming Al-Qaeda and Ansar Al-Sharia (the group that claimed responsibility) specifically.

Take note, beginning at about the 1:50 mark. Greta asks Herridge for some specificity about who received the letter. Though Herridge doesn’t give names, she provides detailed information about where it went after revealing that Christopher Stevens is the one who signed it:

“(the cable was) copied to her (Hillary) and then it routes out, in this case, probably typically to diplomatic security, their near east Asia desk and others but it is specifically addressed to her office.”

Specifically. addressed. to. Hillary’s. office.

Here’s the video (h/t Right Scoop):

Ok, so it was “route(d)” out of Hillary’s office to an appropriate under secretary / bureau head tasked with heeding the very specific pleas of our ambassador. Yet, no one has been disciplined for not heeding what amounts to a distress signal, an S.O.S., a cry for help.

When someone discusses “Hillary Clinton’s office” does that include her Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin? Did Abedin see any of these cables at any time? Based on her background, that is an extremely relevant question that needs to be answered.

We are not alleging that Abedin saw the cable or had anything to do with it not being acted on. However, her potential access to and influence with Secretary Clinton in such situations, coupled with her familial connections / conflicts of interest when it comes to the Muslim Brotherhood, demonstrate perfectly why she should have been disqualified from holding the position she now holds.

Here is an extremely important point to consider. Huma Abedin’s parents were put in charge of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) by a representative of the founder of the IMMA – Abdullah Omar Naseef. Naseef also has a history of being an al-Qaeda financier. Huma herself served on the IMMA Board WITH NASEEF from at least 1996 – 2003 and continued to serve on IMMA’s Board until 2008 / 2009, when she assumed her current role.

Based on these unassailable facts, should someone with Abedin’s background be working in Hillary’s “office”, especially when the reach of that office extends to danger spots for Americans in Muslim lands?

Again, we are in no way saying that Abedin had any knowledge of this cable whatsoever but we are saying that the circumstances leading up to the attack on the consulate, as well as who Stevens viewed as a threat (Al-Qaeda and Ansar Al-Sharia), illustrates perfectly why someone with Abedin’s background should not be put in the position. Such a person’s associations matter, not because of guilt or innocence but because of potential conflicts of interest in matters of allegiance.

Here is a compelling interview between Fox News Channel’s Bill Hemmer and Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC), member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. This interview was approximately twelve hours prior to Herridge’s interview with Greta but note how angry Gowdy is. While he is clearly pointing directly to the White House, he is also wanting answers from the State Department:

Left To Die!

By Justin O. Smith
November 1, 2012 4:00pm

More than negligence and incompetence, the murders of four Americans at Benghazi on 9/11 were the direct result of dereliction of duty by President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and Secretary of Defense Panetta, and this case will immortalize forever in the annals of infamy the feckless, ineffectual, weak and cowardly example of "leadership" that Americans yoked themselves with in 2008; twice after the initial "critic"/ Critical Incident Flash, the White House received requests for military assistance during the attack, and twice they denied those requests. A full explanation is owed America concerning these decisions, especially in light of the fact that the Obama administration viewed the attack through a drone camera in real time.

The intricacy of the Ansar terrorist attack proves that this entire tragic episode was a pre-planned attack. They had positioned blocking and kill or capture teams between the CIA Annex and the U.S. Consulate. They had even thought ahead and positioned an ambush to surprise any U.S. "quick response" teams that might arrive, and they had strategically positioned mortars within range of the Annex. Something this intricate is not built from a "spontaneous protest".

Twenty minutes into the attack on the U.S. Consulate at 4:05pm Washington time - 10:05pm Benghazi time, the State Department's regional office reported that the Consulate was under attack and that Ambassador Stevens was supposedly safe with the 17th of February militia providing security support, but we now know they deserted once the battle escalated; "Update 1" at 4:54 Washington time reported the firing had stopped and a "response team" was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.

The "response team" consisted of Tyrone Woods and Glenn Dogherty who disobeyed their superior's orders to "stand down" when they heard the first shots at 9:40pm. They made approximately a one mile run from the CIA Annex to the Consulate, and upon arriving the firing lull rapidly turned into a fierce firefight to evacuate approximately 35 employees to the CIA Annex and simply survive. They eventually did arrive at the Annex with the body of Sean Smith, killed early in the attack, but Ambassador Stevens had been separated from them; these men were in Libya under CIA contract to track down surface to air missiles used by the islamofascist groups, and they were under no obligation to assist, defend or protect Ambassador Stevens, and yet, they ran headlong into danger!

An hour after the attack, Obama, Panetta and VP Biden met in the Oval Office, and soon after military assets were being moved: Eight from Special Operations were sent from Tripoli, a Fleet Anti-terrorism Security Team (FAST) of Marines from Rota, Spain was sent to guard the Tripoli U.S. Embassy, F-16s and Apache helicopters never left Aviano Airbase in Italy, and two U.S. Navy destroyers already in the Mediterranean were positioned off the Libyan coast but left dormant.

Pathetic is the only way to describe the administration's assertion that they needed the Libyan government's permission to enter Libya's airspace. What government?... the militias were still running everything... And the U.S. doesn't ask "mother, may I" before crossing a border to save their own. What bravery our fighting men showed during WWII, Korea and Vietnam when the code was "leave no man behind," and now what cowardice is apparent within this despicable Obama administration!

Lt Col Tony Schaffer (Retired Army) explains that the U.S. planned the invasion of Grenada in 1983 in six hours, and he added, "We could have had a strike team on the ground in Benghazi in thirty minutes or less to protect, assist and extract our personnel under attack ... the video (from Benghazi) is damning, and it needs to get out for the public to see."

Former CIA Officer Gary Burston asserted, "President Obama is a master of trying to deflect and change the subject... personnel in Benghazi must have been screaming for help. There were options for the administration to help and intervene. They could have sent an AC 130 Talon with computerized machine guns. All it would have taken is one pass. It would have beaten the attackers back. Then they could have sent in a Quick Reaction Force." Several Tier 1 teams were within an hour of the attack site, and they would have made an enormous difference in the fighting that spanned eight hours.

Incredible heroism was displayed by Woods and Dogherty as they fought to save the Consulate staff members during a second wave of attacks. Between the initial firefight at the Consulate and the assault on the Annex, they fought for over six hours, and, along with others, they were able to withstand against over 200 Ansar al-Shariah/ Islamic Maghreb terrorists, while also taking heavy fire from RPGs, mortars and a 23mm anti-aircraft weapon!

At 4:00am... six hours and twenty minutes after the initial attack... former Navy SEALs Glenn A. Dogherty and Tyrone S. Woods were killed at the CIA Annex by a mortar round. Their machine gun was covered in blood, and gives testimony that they fought on after being wounded.

Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham stated, "It is disappointing to hear that our national command authorities failed to reinforce the Consulate with timely air assets, and that a consulate located in one of the most dangerous regions in the world was so unsecured."

Just think how different the outcome would have been had the Consulate been protected by just one platoon of Marines, all sniper trained. Obama had actionable intelligence explicitly showing a high probability of an imminent attack, but a year ago he failed to devote resources to secure the facility. He had no plan for such a situation as this, when our people were depending on a rapid response. And... Obama's failures and dereliction of duty as Commander-in-Chief caused four good, decent American Patriots to lose their lives!

Through the lens of the enigma of war the truth has manifested itself through the ugliness, stupidity and cowardice of Obama, Clinton, Panetta and others in the administration who had real time images of Americans facing slaughter: and, with numerous military assets nearby, they decided to sit safely in the White House Situation Room and leave these fine Americans in the lurch, while revealing their strength of conviction and principles, Glenn A. Dogherty and Tyrone S. Woods' distinguished and brilliant actions illustrated the best of  military tradition and the American spirit, as they defended U.S. interests, placed America ahead of self and died with honor so others would live! We will not let their courage be hidden or their sacrifice diminished... We will not forget!

Left To Die!


  1. (Hi SlantRight. Saw this on the web.)

    The Background Obama Can't Cover Up !

    Islam, part of the Living River of History, can affect even the 2012 US election!
    The "headwaters" of this River was Adam, according to Judaism, Christianity, Islam etc .
    In the OT (Deut. 28), "tributaries" wanting to join the River will be blessed while "distributaries" who want to flow away from it will be cursed. Those wishing to totally separate from the fresh Living River will end up as polluted, dying "oxbow lakes."
    In the OT we see Israelites repeatedly flowing away from God, then repenting and returning to Him; we also see heathen "oxbow lakes" creating their own "gods" and being allowed by God to plunder and kill the erring Israelites.
    Then, at the right time, the Living River took on new life with the arrival of the Promised One who offers "living water."
    In the 7th century Islam, drawing from both OT and NT, chose to be a distributary away from this River. Many scholars have viewed it as the final Antichrist: note "scourge" (Isa. 28), "Assyrian" (Mic. 5), "Euphrates" (Rev. 9) etc.
    God will allow this "scourge" to temporarily persecute and even kill apostate Jews (JINOs) and Christians (CINOs). Jews, especially in "entertainment," seem more expert in apostasy than Christians since Jews have been at it 2000 years longer than Christians have (Google "") - but Christians apparently want to catch up to the Jews!
    It's apparent that others will join Islam in its end-time inquisition; its great oil wealth can captivate many leaders and already we are seeing apostate American leaders being bribed into turning against true American patriots.
    Those who ignore (or try to dilute or destroy) the God-ordained Living River of History will be swept down it to an ocean made by their own never-ending tears of agony and despair.
    The good news is that American JINOs & CINOs can overcome the "scourge" discussed above. The secret is found by checking out "II Chronicles 7:14" & "John 3:16" on the web.
    And there's still time - and freedom - before the 2012 "End of America" election to Google or MSN "Obama Promotes Public Sex," "Obama a Black-Slavery Avenger?," "Dangerous Radicals of the Religious Right," "Pretrib Rapture Politics," "Mikey Weinstein, Jesus-Basher," "Christ's return is NOT imminent," "Pretrib Rapture Dishonesty," and "Pretrib Rapture Secrets."
    In light of Matthew 7:2, if we tolerate Christian leaders who lie to us and steal from us, we shouldn't be surprised if God allows us to have political leaders who lie to us and steal from us!

    A Kansas Patriot (who won FIRST PLACE over 2200 entrants in a nationwide Americanism essay contest)

  2. Well thought out Rocky. However keep in mind the Jews are the receivers of the Promise of Abraham. That is why every time they screwed forgiveness will always come their way by turning to the Lord. Total restoration to their land is the OT Promise and the NT directs that restoration to ultimately to be in the Son of Man/Son of God Jesus the Messiah/Christ. Believing is voluntary and disbelieving is condemnation.

    Congrats on first place
