Hillary Kicks Butt on Benghazi
The New York Times published the real story behind the Benghazi attack and Tea Party heads are 'splodin' all over the Right. They just can't let go of their favorite conspiracy theory, that all of this was either orchestrated by Al Qaeda and approved by Obama, or that Obama and Hillary and Susan Rice conspired to "ignore" the death and destruction. Either Obama did nothing, or Obama is a mastermind! Whatever - nothing can change the Tea Party minds!
From "A Deadly Mix in Benghazi" by David D. Kirkpatrick in The New York Times
Months of investigation by The New York Times, centered on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the assault.
. . . Fifteen months after Mr. Stevens’s death, the question of responsibility remains a searing issue in Washington, framed by two contradictory story lines.
One has it that the video, which was posted on YouTube, inspired spontaneous street protests that got out of hand. This version, based on early intelligence reports, was initially offered publicly by Susan E. Rice, who is now Mr. Obama’s national security adviser.
The other, favored by Republicans, holds that Mr. Stevens died in a carefully planned assault by Al Qaeda to mark the anniversary of its strike on the United States 11 years before. Republicans have accused the Obama administration of covering up evidence of Al Qaeda’s role to avoid undermining the president’s claim that the group has been decimated, in part because of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.
The investigation by The Times shows that the reality in Benghazi was different, and murkier, than either of those story lines suggests. Benghazi was not infiltrated by Al Qaeda, but nonetheless contained grave local threats to American interests. The attack does not appear to have been meticulously planned, but neither was it spontaneous or without warning signs.
. . . they didn't talk to the people on the ground who were doing the fighting and shooting and the intelligence gathering. When you put that volume of information, I think it proves that story is just not accurate.
. . . I find the timing odd. I don't want to speculate on why they might do it, but I can tell you that the information that's being presented in a way that we heard before ... through the [committee] investigation [we] have been able to determine [it] is not accurate in its portrayal.
~ Rep. Mike Rogers R-Michigan, Chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence
We have seen no evidence that the video was widely seen in Benghazi, a very isolated area, or that it was a leading cause. What we do know is that September 11 [the date of the 2012 attack] was not an accident. These are terrorist groups, some of them linked to or ... self-claimed as al-Qaeda linked. ... Before I go on, I wanted to make a very good point that [reporter David D. Kirkpatrick] put out. Look, it is not about al-Qaeda as the only terrorist organization.
. . . There was a group there that was involved that's linked to al-Qaeda. What we never said -- and I didn't have security look behind the door, that's for other members of Congress. ... Those sources and methods I've never claimed. What I have claimed, and rightfully so, is Ambassador Stevens [who was killed in the attack] and others alerted, well in advance, that they had a security threat.

If Times reporter David Kirkpatrick truly found “no evidence that Al Qaeda or other international terrorist groups had any role in the [Benghazi] assault,” this must be because he spent little effort to uncover any.

COME ON...Please, It is more than misleading information on Benghazi...It is Out & Out Lies. Rice still sticks to her story and never removed, only sifted to another Branch of Government to continue her support of Obama and His Muslim Brotherhood membership. I am so Furious, I could spit 44 Cal bullets from my mouth. Obama, Biden, Rice, Clinton, Jarret, Pelosi, Reid and even Numb-Nut Bone Head Boehner should be held for Treason.

More BS lies from the times, the paper of record for communist bastards worldwide. This lie that the act of war was caused by a video seen by a few people is cover for the vile prog Clinton’s run in 16. The regime was involved in arming terrorists and an AmeriKan ambassador and three other men were murdered and this regimes response is……………… nothing? That alone tells you the Marxist regime in DC preferred those men’s deaths because the criminal acts of the regime dies with those men. BHO and all members of this regime involved in the Benghazi cover up should be in prison for life, vile bastards the lot of em.

People! The Democrat’s political machine is running full bore in preparation for the next election. They need to throw several versions of the story out there to see which one gains acceptance by voters…once decided, everyone will stick to it. In the end, Hillarious Clinton will be a hero in all this…
~ StormCrow on The Blaze
The Benghazi attack had nothing to do with that film.
It was a planned attack, because it was the 11th anniversary of 9-11.
The Muslims’ holy lucky number is 11.
That’s also why New York was attacked on the 11th.
~ Believe-Receive on The Blaze
So why a story now about Bengazi when the NY Times could have cared less…SO HILLARY CAN RUN FOR PRESIDENT. This is ALL about creating a narrative so the lying wildabeast can run . The NY Times is only fit to line the bottom of bird cages

The New York Times. Huh. A subsidiary of the Liberal and Criminal Left Wing of American Politics.
I don't believe a word they write, and not a word of what they say.
Besides, "What difference at this point does it make?" Words to crucify Hillary "leso" Clinton.

Wow... well the number two man... the man right under the Ambassador (Chris Stevens) that was killed and raped anally by al qaeda says that the ny slimes is lying... all evidence in the official investigation states that al qaeda and associates were the perps so the ny slimes is just lying for hillary clinton... the MURDERESS of Benghazi.

If hitlery wins in 2016, America goes full tilt communist, and she will make mao Zedong look like a rank amateur in the area of political purges, and will start with obama and his quasi-muslim regime. The democrats have quite a quandary on their hands, either socialism, communism, brutal intolerant theocracy, or a straight up dictatorship. So many choices, so few options.
