‘Very upset’: CIA sat on Benghazi investigation, US personnel fuming
By Adam Housley, Published March 13, 2014, FoxNews.com
American personnel on the ground in Benghazi the night of the 2012 terror attack are outraged after learning that the CIA's inspector general never conducted an investigation into what happened -- despite two CIA workers being killed in the attack and despite at least two complaints being filed by CIA employees.
Former Ambassador Chris Stevens, another State official and two ex-Navy SEALs working for the CIA were killed in that attack.
Many in the agency were told, or were under the impression, that an investigation was in the works, but that is not the case.
Here’s What Ex-CBS Reporter Sharyl Attkison Noticed During Wednesday’s Benghazi Hearing
Apr. 2, 2014 10:34pm Jason Howerton
Journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who recently resigned from CBS News, dissected former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell’s Wednesday testimony on the infamous Benghazi talking points. She not only outlined his claims in detail on Twitter, but she also produced a new article on her website, SharylAttkisson.com.
She noted that it’s still unclear “why federal officials seemed so confused and provided so much contradictory info about how the talking points evolved.”
Morell Testifies on Benghazi Talking Points "Mistakes...not due to politics"
by Sharyl Attkisson April 2, 2014
During a Congressional hearing that lasted more than three hours, former C.I.A. Deputy Director Michael Morell praised his former agency’s intelligence analysts as the best on the globe, yet ones who he admits were sorely mistaken when they reported that spontaneous protesters were to blame for the Beghazi, Libya terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2012.
Things Get Tense When Bachmann Grills Former CIA Deputy Director Over Benghazi Talking Points
Apr. 2, 2014 4:00pm Oliver Darcy
The former deputy director of the CIA insisted during a congressional hearing Wednesday that he did not alter the infamous 2012 Benghazi talking points due to political pressure, despite pointed questioning by Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).
Update: Testimony Reveals More Contradictions on Benghazi Talking Points Evolution
Guy Benson, Apr 04, 2014
On Wednesday, former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell testified before the House Intelligence Committee regarding the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi. He was grilled over the infamous administration "talking points," which were revised to exclude references to terrorism, Al Qaeda, and security warnings that were ignored leading up to the deadly raid. The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes discussed what happened on Special Report, noting that Morell was forced to change and clarify previous statements he'd made on these subjects:
In May 2011, I was asked by Christopher Ruddy, Newsmax Media’s President and CEO, to start a commercial intelligence analysis and forecasting service. It was an exciting project and a great opportunity after 25 years working in the national security field.
This project became known as the Langley Intelligence Group Network (LIGNET). Working with other intelligence and national security experts, we launched this project in the fall of 2011. LIGNET produces analysis in the style of the President’s Daily Brief, the classified memo that the U.S. Intelligence Community brings to the president every morning containing analysis of major security issues affecting this country.
Of the over 2,400 analyses we’ve posted since the launch of LIGNET, our work on one subject stands out: the September 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
I’m compelled to speak out about this after watching the testimony of former CIA acting Director Michael Morell before the House Intelligence Committee this week...
Clinton and the other Benghazi murderers know what they have done, it is our job to constantly remind Americans about the treachery of these politicians, or next time it could be your loved one left to die on a distant battlefield...
Hillary Clinton Cancels Appearance Where Benghazi Victim's Mom, Protestors Await
April 4, 2014 - 10:52 AM, By Barbara Boland
Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 - but she's cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families.
Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton's role in the Benghazi scandal.
We are a non-partisan non-political group of San Diegans. We feel a need to exercise our First Amendent Rights in speaking publically to insist on having good government and honesty from our publically elected officials. We believe “THE DIFFERENCE MATTERS”.
Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn't 'switched sides in the War on Terror' and allowed $500 MILLION of weapons to reach al-Qaeda militants, reveals damning report
- Citizens Committee on Benghazi claims the US government allowed arms to flow to al-Qaeda-linked militants who opposed Muammar Gaddafi - Their rise to power, the group says, led to the Benghazi attack in 2012 - The group claims the strongman Gaddafi offered to abdicate his presidency, but the US refused to broker his peaceful exit - The commission, part of the center-right Accuracy In Media group, concluded that the Benghazi attack was a failed kidnapping plot - US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for 'blind sheikh' Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot
By David Martosko, U.s. Political Editor, Published: 15:09 EST, 22 April 2014 | Updated: 17:29 EST, 22 April 2014
The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn't been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier.
'The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,' Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.
She blamed the Obama administration for failing to stop half of a $1 billion United Arab Emirates arms shipment from reaching al-Qaeda-linked militants.
Benghazi emails suggest White House aide involved in prepping Rice for ‘video’ explanation
By Catherine Herridge, Published April 29, 2014, FoxNews.com
Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video.
The Senate confirmed four of President Obama’s executive and judicial nominees Thursday.
Theodore Chuang and George Hazel will serve as U.S. district judges for Maryland. The Senate voted 53-42 on Chuang’s nomination and 95-0 on Hazel’s.
“I can’t support his nomination because of the central role Mr. Chuang played in the administration’s efforts to stonewall an investigation into the situation in Benghazi,” Grassley said. “These questions remain unanswered because the administration refuses to recognize the rights of congressional oversight.”
Father of SEAL Killed in Benghazi Attacks: White House 'Watched This Battle Happen'

The father of Ty Woods, a Navy SEAL who was killed in the September 11, 2012 terror attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is speaking out on the latest revelations on the alleged White House cover-up in the wake of the tragedy.
"The people of the United States as well as the families need to know what actually happened," Charles Woods told Sean Hannity. He called the select congressional committee "an answer to prayer."
CIA Whistleblower faces the ire of an angry Justice Department over Benghazi questions
By Doug Hagmann, Saturday, May 3, 2014
Longtime former CIA field operative turned whistleblower Robert “Tosh” Plumlee is currently in the crosshairs of a very angry Holder Justice Department for publicly posting 11 “questions” about Benghazi and the illegal weapons running operations being conducted by criminal elements within the U.S. government. Mr. Plumlee is no ordinary CIA whistleblower, however.
Rep. Gowdy: 'I Have Evidence' of Benghazi Cover-Up
Friday, 02 May 2014 09:04 PM, By Todd Beamon
Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday that he has evidence of a "systematic, intentional" effort by the Obama administration to withhold documents from Congress about the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans.
"I have evidence that, not only are they hiding it, there's an intent to hide it," the South Carolina Republican told "On the Record With Greta Van Susteren" on Fox News. "I can't disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress — and we're just sick of it."
There is a lot more to come on the Benghazi cover-up, and it could well lead to criminal charges for withholding subpoenaed evidence. Trey Gowdy, an experienced prosecutor who will head the House Select Committee, has gone on the record (on Greta van Susteren’s FNC program of the same name) as having more evidence of a cover-up. Bizpacreview:
With Congress breathing down his neck on Benghazi, President Obama has a legal ace in his hand – executive privilege – which he could assert to protect the documents explaining exactly why the White House came to blame the attack on a YouTube video.
Politically, however, it's a hand he dare not play. To get the strongest legal backing for the privilege, Obama would need to claim he personally participated in the conversations about telling America the falsehood that the 9/11 Benghazi terrorist attack was due to the video.
There are two types of the executive privilege. The stronger one is the presidential communications privilege, and the (much) weaker one is the deliberative process privilege.
Judicial Watch: Obama Administration Still Withholding Documents about Benghazi Attack

New State Department Document Argues Releasing Benghazi Documents Would “Chill” Government Deliberations – Including Internal WH Discussion about Whether US Officials Knew Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack Within 24 Hours
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released a 17-page draft Vaughn Index document obtained from the U.S. Department of State on May 1, revealing that the Obama administration is still refusing to provide the full details of how top officials arrived at the now-discredited talking points released to the public following the deadly assault on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya. The new documents, containing more than 50 paragraphs of justifications to withhold information, were obtained in response to a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Action (FOIA) lawsuit (Judicial Watch, Inc., v. U.S. Department of State, (Civil Action No. 13-cv-00951 (EGS)) filed on June 21, 2013.
Did ex-White House Official Contradict ex-CIA Official's Sworn Testimony on Benghazi?
by Sharyl Attkisson, May 3, 2014
Did the former spokesman for President Obama’s National Security Staff (NSS) contradict accounts of other Obama officials, including sworn testimony before Congress, regarding the administration’s talking points on the Sept. 11, 2012 Benghazi terrorist attacks?
The question arose Thursday when Fox News anchor Brett Baier questioned former NSS spokesman Tommy Vietor. During the interview, Vietor acknowledged making at least one substantive change to the talking points.
The curious thing about September 11, 2012 — the day of the Benghazhi attack — is that for some reason it marks the decline of the Obama presidency as clearly as a milepost. We are told by the papers that nothing much happened on that day. A riot in a far-away country. A few people killed. And yet …
Rep. Kinzinger: Why Didn't US Send Help During Benghazi Attack?
Monday, 12 May 2014 02:49 PM, By Wanda Carruthers
Why the United States did not send military support when American service personnel were under attack in 2012 at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, is one of the primary questions Rep. Adam Kinzinger said he wants answered from the House select committee's investigation into the incident.
When officials did not know how long the attack would last, Kinzinger told Fox News' "America's Newsroom" on Monday, he wondered "why the military was not sent, when there was this seven-hour span between the first and second attack."
The Obama administration continues to suppress documents that could finally explain why U.S. officials lied to the world that the September 2012 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, occurred as a protest over an American-made anti-Muslim video. And the families and friends of the four brave Americans murdered there continue to suffer without answers, reasons or justice. Is there not a shred of heart left in Washington?
Benghazi Commission: The End Of Hillary Clinton’s Political Career

There are very ‘good’ reasons why the House Democrats are making threats of boycotting the recently approved commission on the Benghazi attack. All of them know that President Obama and the Secretary of State at the time, Hillary Clinton, did not properly discharge their duties during the attack.
Fox News Poll: Obama, Clinton seen as deceitful on Benghazi
By Dana Blanton, Published May 14, 2014, FoxNews.com
A majority thinks the White House has tried to deceive people about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. At the same time, Republicans are seen as politicizing the issue rather than trying to get to the truth.
These are just some of the findings from the latest Fox News poll.

Underground source reports high level threat to Benghazi investigators
Anthony Martin, Conservative Examiner, May 13, 2014
On Thursday, May 8, 2014, a source who described himself as a part of the "underground resistance" told this reporter that a top level government official had relayed information to a fellow patriot in the resistance movement, information that represents a dire threat to investigators of the Benghazi attacks. The threat was directed specifically to those who have been chosen for the Select Committee on Benghazi in the U.S. House of Representatives, as well as reporters who are investigating the Benghazi attacks.
A Former Congressman Is Making Explosive Allegations After Allegedly Being Told the ‘Ground Truth’ About Benghazi by Source
May. 23, 2014 8:06pm Jason Howerton
“We had been supplying radical Islamists with weapons against Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, effectively supplying the enemy and destabilizing that country,” he added.
“And it seems that there was a CIA weapons buy-back program, the aim of which was to ship the retrieved weapons out of Libya through Turkey, and to the Islamist forces in Syria.”
West apparently believes in his source enough to allege Benghazi will “make Iran-Contra look like Romper Room.” However, due to the unanswered questions about the source, it’s impossible to verify the claims at this time.
“Danged if I know!” answered Dr. Susan Rice when asked about the administration’s multiple betrayals of U.S. policy, its many violations of ordinary decency, its massive electoral coverups, Obama’s daily bad faith lies to the American people, and worst of all, their knowing betrayal of Constitutional command responsibility in the miserable Benghazi fiasco.
Instead of “Danged if I know!” Dr. Rice is perfectly able to speak educated English, and with her Oxford doctorate she fully understands the many levels of treachery revealed by the Benghazi assault on 9/11/12 -- the 11th anniversary of the biggest attack on American soil since Pearl Harbor.
The assault on America on 9/11/01 was conducted using ritualistic Muslim throat-slitting by trained Wahhabi murderers, killing American flight attendants and their cabin crews, the pride of American civil aviation, and crashing four civilian airplanes full of screaming human beings into the Twin Towers and the Pentagon.
The Wahhabi butchers of 9/11/01 used the exact animal throat cutting technique that Muslims practice on the ‘Eid al Adha holiday at the end of Ramadan, when every devout family kills a sheep for Allah, amid general rejoicing. That is an ancient Arabian desert celebration that has not changed since the 7th century CE.
Obama has known about ‘Eid butchery since he attended Muslim school in Jakarta from age six to ten. Al Qaida simply applies animal butchery to human children and other innocents, if they refuse to convert to Islam.
First level of Benghazi betrayal: The Benghazi attack on 9/11/13 was a deliberate signal, recognized by every Muslim in the world, and by every member of this administration, that Al Qaida was winning the Jihad War against America, contrary to a massive election-time lie by the Democrats and our beneath-contempt media that “Al Qaida is on the run.”
Six weeks before the U.S. presidential election, Al Qaida signaled plainly and clearly that it was expanding and killing more every day. Every informed person in the world understood that, except for the American people, who are bamboozled on a daily basis by our political media class.
Go back to the news headlines on that day, and you can’t see it plain as the nose on your face. If you did not understand the front-page photos that day, it’s because our oil-bought media have pulled the wool over your eyes. Your bad. Their win.
U.S. Air Force Major (Ret.) Drops Brand New Benghazi Revelations That Raise Serious Questions About White House’s Response
Jun. 11, 2014 7:32pm Jason Howerton
The terrorists who attacked the U.S. compound and CIA annex in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, took cellphones from State Department personnel during the deadly assault and contacted senior terrorist leaders about the success of the operation — and U.S. spy agencies overheard the conversations, Fox News reports.
Eric Stahl, who recently retired as a major in the U.S. Air Force, told Fox News that members of a CIA-trained Global Response Staff were “confused” by the Obama administration’s repeated claim that an anti-Muslim video sparked the terrorist attack because “they knew during the attack…who was doing the attacking.”
Iraq, Iran, ISIS, the Obama White House and the Benghazi connection
By Richard Cameron, Communities Digital News, 16 Jun 2014
To form a framework within which to examine this, we must look back to Benghazi. Circumstantial evidence indicates that the ‘Special Mission Compound’ in Benghazi was employed as a control / staging area for the inventory and transshipment of heavy weaponry that was spread throughout Libya following the defeat of Gaddafi.
From there, many security experts including Admiral James A. Lyons (retired) believe that Turkey was acting as distribution agent for these weapons, including Surface-to-air missiles to the al Nusra brigade and ISIS in Syria for the purpose of overthrowing the regime of Bashar al-Assad. Remember that on Ambassador Stevens’ appointment calendar for September 11th, 2012 included a visit from Turkey’s Consul General Ali Sait Akin, less than an hour before the compound came under attack. Frank J. Gaffney, Jr., President of the Center for Security Policy recently stated:
Obama's under heavy pressure at home so he does what? Pulls an 'ace' he has been holding onto for such an occasion in a weak attempt to divert attention from the ongoing scandals...
‘You’re Not Answering’: Pay Attention to How State Dept. Official Responds to Reporter’s Simple Benghazi Question
Jun. 17, 2014 4:42pm Jason Howerton
Fox News reporter James Rosen pressed State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki on Tuesday over why it took such a long time to apprehend Benghazi suspect Ahmed Abu Khattala when he wasn’t even in hiding. In fact, the suspect has conducted several press interviews since the deadly Benghazi terror attacks.
President Barack Obama has done it again. He’s scammed America.
The IRS scandal is exploding – they told us “the dog ate Lois Lerner’s emails.” The very evidence that could lead to the impeachment of the president has disappeared into cyberspace.
Obama is still taking heat for releasing five Jihadist mass murderers in a swap for a deserter.
Then there’s the Department of Veterans Affairs scandal. Now it turns out that millions of dollars in bonuses were handed out while vets died.
Iraq is crumbling. Everything we fought for, the trillion dollars we spent “liberating” Iraq, the many brave men who died, it’s all being erased as Iraq falls to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. Soon Baghdad will fall – the writing is already on the wall.
This is the greatest foreign policy embarrassment in U.S. history. Under Obama’s leadership, the nation is in crisis and free fall.
So what does the greatest scam artist to ever occupy the White House do? He pulls out the WMD – Weapon of Mass Distraction. He “wags the dog” to distract the masses. He finally gives permission for U.S. Special Forces to capture the architect of Benghazi – a terrorist hiding in plain sight for the past 20 months.
Presto. The Kool-Aid drinking mainstream media call Obama “a hero.” Amazing.
No one can be this dumb, can they?
But the scam is much deeper than it appears. The capture of Benghazi terrorist mastermind Ahmed Abu Khattala isn’t just a cover-up for the public relations mess Obama is in. The capture itself is the biggest scam of all.
