RICE'S FACE-TO-FACE WITH
SENATORS SCORES A FAIL
SENATORS SCORES A FAIL
Our questions about why our Ambassador and three other American heroes were denied life-saving and readily available assistance remainunanswered following a face-to-face meeting among GOP Senators and UN Ambassador Susan Rice. In fact, instead of being reassured that nothing was amiss, the Senators leading the charge against the White House cover up of the Benghazi massacre left the Rice meeting more confused and "disturbed" than ever!
And on top of NO ANSWERS from Rice about why she went on network television five days after the attacks to call the strikes "spontaneous" and the tragic result of a local protest of an anti-Islamic video, there are still no plausible answers about precisely who changed the talking points she made sure to feed the American people – or why the changes were even made!
Acting CIA Director Michael Morrell came out at 10 a.m. on Tuesday to lay the blame on the FBI for changing the talking points – only to jump back and change his tune at 4 p.m. THE SAME DAY to say the changes were actually made at the CIA. Of course, Morrell says it is still unclear WHO made the changes!
"In the course of the meeting, we explained that the talking points provided by the intelligence community, and the initial assessment upon which they were based, were incorrect in a key respect: There was no protest or demonstration in Benghazi," Rice said in a written statement.
"Neither I nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the American people at any stage in this process, and the administration updated Congress and the American people as our assessments evolved."
But we aren't buying it!
The White House AND Susan Rice without a doubt knew the facts from the outset – that well organizedterrorists attacked and killed Americans in Benghazi – this was manifestly evident within minutes by the weaponry, and absolutely confirmed within hours of the deadly assault.
That was FIVE DAYS before Susan Rice went on FIVE popular Sunday national TV news programs and before Barack Obama LIED SIX TIMES to the United Nations blaming the Benghazi massacre on a non-existent spontaneous protest!
Yet, they think they can get away with blaming anonymously, mysteriously changed talking points!
Rice, who continues to be discussed as one of the top candidates to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton when she steps down next year, is STILL covering up for the White House. This shameful dishonesty will result in her own professional demise as the White House cover story continues to self-destruct – one dishonest, incoherent, confused testimony and press release at a time.
There is no doubt that this corrupt, conniving administration has blood on its hands, particularly and specifically the hands of the Campaigner-in-Chief himself.
Now we just need to make sure this administration and those persons of authority responsible for denying life-saving aid to our fellow Americans AND responsible for lying to the American people are held ACCOUNTABLE!
We MUST keep the momentum going in building the public's outcry for justice to prevail! Congress MUST hear from YOU!
"I am more disturbed now than before," said South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, who met with Rice for about 90 minutes on Capitol Hill.
"I'm significantly troubled by the answers we got and didn't get," said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz.
"I am more troubled today and after meeting with acting Director Morrell and Susan Rice," said New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte.
We don't know why the administration has lied and lied and lied about Benghazi. Was it something at first 'innocently' done to try to ameliorate Barack Obama's condemning failure to protect American lives when a tragic, vulgar political calculation in the election about the "terrorist narrative" went fatally awry? Or was it something more sinister than covering up his failure as Commander-in-Chief that drives to his commitment to Americans, his loyalty to America and his allegiance to his oath to our Constitution, his office and our nation as a whole?
None dare call it TREASON in the elite, legacy, mainstream media… or among the establishment political parties. We have no problem calling it TREASON.
At the daily White House press briefing on Tuesday, when questions were asked about why Amb. Rice was the one delivering the lies to the American people (rather than the more obvious messenger, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton), Obama's press secretary Jay Carney called Rice's appearances "entirely appropriate" even though Carney also said that she has "no responsibility for providing intelligence" and "no responsibility for diplomatic security."
So why did Obama put here out there "at White House request"? No accountability and no responsibility, yet she was the one selected to address the American people – because that is exactly how little this administration thinks of WE THE PEOPLE, including the Americans they sacrifice to Islamist terrorists on the altar of their political ambitions before going to bed for the night!
Now allegations are coming out that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was itself just a cover up, a CIA front for the Obama administration to circumvent U.S. law and Congress, and ARM Islamist-led insurgencies throughout the Middle East, including rebel fighters who are openly members of Al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations.
But because the American people aren't getting answers, we still don't know whether the Benghazi facility was a legitimate diplomatic "mission" or a CIA front. Referencing to the disputed talking points memo, Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes while aboard Air Force One over the weekend said "the only edit made by the White House was the factual edit about how to refer to the facility."
According to Rhodes, they changed the CIA's reference in the report from "consulate" to "diplomatic facility." As reported by Politico, California's Sen. Dianne Feinstein was adamant that this was the only change made by the White House.
"There was only one thing that was changed … and that was, the word 'consulate' was changed to 'mission,'" Feinstein said. "That's the only change that anyone in the White House made, and I have checked this out."
Maintaining a non-descript façade for the sake of a mission would certainly have helped the administration explain the lack of security that helped the terrorists KILL FOUR AMERICANS, so why did Rice repeatedly refer to the "facility" as a "consulate" on her post-attack PR blitz?
Why change the reference at all?
Today, we have a chance to find out. Rice will again face our elected representatives on Capitol Hill. This time the truth must prevail! The Obama administration has hidden behind lies, excuses and non-answers for long enough. Barack Obama let Benghazi burn and Americans die – this is NOT the American way! Obama and his failure of an administration must be brought to justice before the American people.
Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., told Fox News that testimonies made earlier this month by former CIA Director David Petraeus, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper and Acting CIA Director Mike Morell have led top lawmakers to believe that references to "Al Qaeda involvement" were DELIBERATELY stripped from the agency's original talking points.
But nobody is confessing to either making the changes or to knowing who is responsible for altering the memo, which was sent out to multiple departments, including the State Department, National Security Council, Justice Department and White House.
"The original talking points were much more specific about Al Qaeda involvement. And yet the final ones just said indications of extremists," King said in an interview with Fox News, adding that the final version was the product of a vague "inter-agency process."
King said a CIA analyst specifically told lawmakers that the Al Qaeda affiliates line "was taken out" likely because changing "Al Qaeda-affiliated individuals" to "extremist organizations" would help minimize the role of terrorists in the attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed four Americans, including our ambassador.
"To me the question right now is who changed those talking points and why… I'd say it was somebody in the administration had to have taken it out," King told Fox News. "That, to me, has to be pursued."
The Leftwing on Capitol Hill is trying to portray the watered down talking points as simply a problem with levels of classification or confusion arising because the level of affiliation between Ansar-al-Sharia, the terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the attack, and Al Qaeda is still unknown…
MAKE NO MISTAKE: The Dems are ready to close the book on Benghazi! They want to excuse the massacre and cover up all the intentional lying to the American people by the Obama administration, national security officials and the legacy media by pretending the only problem was an accidental memo change – but that is fooling no one!
Petraeus made it clear to Congress and the American people that he knew it was a terror attack from the start – not a "spontaneous" protest over a silly anti-Islam film.
So, why did Susan Rice, our ambassador to the U.N. tell the American people FIVE TIMES within one day on five different prestige news programs that the attack resulted from spontaneous rioting?
As ambassador, Rice has access to highly classified as well as unclassified information, and she has since claimed that she was only using the intelligence community's best assessment…
It just doesn't add up. WHO gave her the 'talking points' to give out on the Sunday talk shows? Obama admitted during his first press conference since March 2011 that "Susan Rice made an appearance at the request of the White House in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her."
For weeks Barack Obama blamed a spontaneous protest for the Benghazi massacre as he paraded from one mainstream media outlet to another, and postured before the U.N. General Assembly. Is it really feasible that the President of the United States of America unwittingly was given watered down intelligence about the murder of four Americans, including our ambassador, on the anniversary of 9/11?
Speaking to the press, Barack Obama furiously denounced criticism against Rice as "outrageous" and announced to concerned lawmakers like Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham they should "go after" him instead. If we can keep up the momentum, that is exactly where this investigation is heading!
Obama tried to blame others, but we aren't buying it. Experienced intelligence and security analysts have expressed deep skepticism of the official account regarding the bizarre circumstances, and the timing, of the resignation of CIA Director Petraeus, tied to disclosure of a salacious extramarital affair. It is just too convenient in spiking testimony embarrassing to the president, in providing weeks of distracting news fodder, and in removing a disruptive narrative that disputes Team Obama's cover up story crafted to conceal their criminal dereliction of duty in Benghazi.
Numerous analysts and commentators note that on October 27 Petraeus, in contradiction to the official Obama administration account, emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of September 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News reported then that Petraeus's denial effectively implicated President Barack Obama in having refused vital aid to the valiant defenders, since a refusal to assist "would have been a presidential decision."
Emails subsequently released revealed that the White House was informed virtually immediately that a terror group had taken responsibility for the attack in Benghazi, and Fox News reported that the two slain defenders, former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, had been refused in requests for assistance they had made from the CIA annex. Yet the Obama administration has continued to cover up and stonewall for months.
WHO DENIED THEIR PLEAS FOR HELP? IT HAD TO BE OBAMA HIMSELF!
AND THE TESTIMONIES OF PETRAEUS, CLAPPER AND MORELL SINCE THEN HAVE, IN FACT, ALL POINTED TO OBAMA, AS WELL.
Charles Woods, father of Ty Woods, has called the White House's explanations of Benghazi a "pack of lies" and implied that those responsible for the decision in the Obama administration to refuse assistance are guilty of "murder." On a national interview, he added:
"My son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people. He risked his life to be a hero. I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same moral courage that my son displayed with his life."
State Department communications reveal that the Obama administration knew for weeks that the Benghazi Embassy was the target of an upcoming terrorist attack. The terrorists even performed multiple "dry run" mini-attacks on the compound in a presumed attempt to assess security breaches.
Obama TRIED to blame Benghazi on a movie. Then he tried to blame the massacre on lack of security by the State Department and the CIA.
But Barack Obama REFUSED to send in the Rapid Reaction Force that could have saved Ambassador Stephens and the three other Americans killed in the attack.
Communiqués indicate that an American drone was sending live feed images to the State Department within 30 minutes of the initial attack.
Help was only 45 minutes away.
But again, Barack Obama refused to save our men.
Instead, it is being reported that as State Department officials watched in HORROR the 7 hour fire fight on live feed from satellites and drones, Barack Obama STILL refused to send help – and instead WENT TO BED.
Bing West, a former Assistant Secretary of Defense, told Greta Van Susteren that if Obama gave the order to secure the consulate in Benghazi as he has claimed – there would be a paper trail:
"If that actually happened the way President Obama said it happened, there's a paper trail and I think people reasonably enough can say, "Can we see the order?" because hundreds of others supposedly saw this order. You better believe, the only way we will EVER see such evidence is in IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATIONS AND HEARINGS!
So far no one has offered any evidence that Obama made the order to protect our men on the ground in Benghazi the night of the attack.
Of the four killed during that 7 hour battle, 2 of our people died in the final hour, as their ammunition was depleted and relief forces FAILED TO ARRIVE.
Tyrone Woods, a former Navy SEAL, was one of the last to perish. Sources on the ground indicate that Ty ran his weapon dry having killed 50 jihadists before he was taken down. The 30 people who escaped the Benghazi consulate with their lives, did so only because of the bravery of former Navy SEALs Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.
But if this administration had used the intel available and sent the help our men expected and deserved before their ammo was depleted, those two heroes would almost certainly still be alive.
THEIR BLOOD IS ON OBAMA'S HANDS.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said he has a report from a U.S. senator that at least two news networks have acquired emails from the White House explicitly ordering a counterterrorism team NOT to secure and render relief, but to stand down on a rescue mission at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
IS THE PRO-OBAMA PRESS WITHHOLDING THESE DAMNING EMAILS? ONLY IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATIONS AND HEARINGS WILL BRING SUCH EVIDENCE FORWARD!
"There is a rumor – I want to be clear, it's a rumor – that at least two networks have emails from the National Security Adviser's office telling a counterterrorism group to stand down," Gingrich told Fox News' Greta Van Susteren. "They were a group in real-time trying to mobilize Marines and C-130s and the fighter aircraft, and they were told explicitly by the White House 'stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action.'"
DON'T LET THIS COVER UP SUCCEED!
Gingrich said "if accurate, it leaves two conclusions: that the secretary of defense usurped the Commander-in-Chief or that Obama in fact never gave the order he claims he did."
President Richard Nixon was driven from office and resigned in shame for far less dire derelictions of duty than the crimes of Barack Obama.
Obama calls the SEALS to duty and the SEALS report.
The SEALS call the Commander-in-Chief to duty and the Imposter-in-Chief votes present.
SEALS die, the first Ambassador since Jimmy Carter was president dies – and Obama lies to cover up, compounding his crimes.
This is insanity. This is betrayal of the highest order. This is TREASON.
DON'T LET THIS COVER UP SUCCEED! DEMAND THAT CONGRESS INVESTIGATE!
SEE TO IT THAT CONGRESS EITHER IMMEDIATELY AUTHORIZE A SPECIAL PROSECUTOR TO INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE VIOLATIONS OF THE LAW IN THIS SHAMEFUL TRAVESTY – OR THAT CONGRESS MAN-UP AND COMMENCE IMPEACHMENT INVESTIGATIONS THEMSELVES, TODAY!
DEMAND THE TRUTH!
