How Obama’s Policies Led to Benghazigate

It took some 22 hours for American help to arrive in Benghazi after all the t’s had been crossed and the i’s had been dotted, and the body of America’s ambassador to Libya had been dragged through the streets by “rescuers” stopping along the way to pose for cell phone pictures with his corpse.

By way of comparison it takes about 16 hours for a boatload of Libyan illegal immigrants to row to the Italian island of Lampedusa. Support for the Americans under fire in Libya would have arrived sooner if a few former members of the Harvard Rowing Team had gotten in one of the many rowboats beached on the shores of Lampedusa and pushed the oars all the way to Benghazi.

It says something about the current state of asymmetrical warfare that not only can Al Qaeda throw together a coordinated string of attacks on American embassies around the region without anyone being the wiser for it, but boatloads of migrants from Libya can reach Europe faster on muscle power than American forces can reach a mission under attack while equipped with jet power.

Obama Inc. blamed the second set of September 11 attacks on a movie, which was giving Al Qaeda credit for not only orchestrating worldwide attacks on American embassies and consulates, but doing it in a matter of days based on nothing more than a YouTube trailer. That would make Al Qaeda one of the more impressive organizations around, but the administration found it easier to give Al Qaeda credit that the terrorist group didn’t deserve rather than accept the blame that it did deserve.

When madmen in America shoot up schools or movie theaters, Obama blames the weapons they used and calls for gun control. When madmen in the Middle East shoot up American consulates and embassies, he blames movies and calls for film control.

Obama assured the nation that the “folks” responsible would be brought to justice. After three weeks of trying to get through Libyan immigration and dealing with concerns about conducting a criminal investigation in a war zone, the FBI finally made it to Benghazi, strolled around the compound for a few hours, took some pictures and then went home without interviewing any persons of interest.

An independent commission chaired by an Iranian lobbyist whose members were handpicked by Hillary Clinton conducted a review of what went wrong and found that the State Department probably should not have relied on an Islamist militia affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood for security, especially considering that its members had been going on strike for pay raises.

Four State Department officials resigned voluntarily, which in government lingo means that three of them took administrative leave and the fourth resigned one of his portfolios while keeping the rest. And the media declared that Benghazigate was over at last. Time for everyone to move on and close the book on another one of those Obama successes that up close look a lot like failures.

Three days after unilaterally deciding to go to war in Libya, while insisting on calling it something other than a war, Obama justified his intervention to the American people based on protecting what would shortly become Libya’s most famously infamous city. “We saw regime forces on the outskirts of the city… we knew that if we waited one more day, Benghazi… could suffer a massacre that would have reverberated across the region and stained the conscience of the world.”

But there was no massacre. Nor was there ever going to be one. The only people who were massacred in Benghazi were Americans.

Obama had not kicked off a war because he was genuinely worried about the “700,000 men, women and children who sought their freedom from fear,” but because the fall of Benghazi would have meant the end of the rebellion and the end of the Arab Spring.

The Libyan War was not fought so that the 700,000 men, women and children of Benghazi could go from living under the rule of a totalitarian government to living under the rule of totalitarian militias. That was just an unintended consequence. And it wasn’t the only such unintended consequence as Gaddafi’s Touraeg allies paired up with Al Qaeda to seize half of Mali and Libyan weapons were passed around to terrorist groups like Hamas.

Those unintended consequences came together on September 11 when those militias decided to commemorate the day with a round of attacks against American targets. Ground Zero for their campaign was Benghazi, the city where they were strongest because the heavily armed militias there had been growing fat on protection money. The same militia that attacked the Benghazi mission also provided security for the hospital where Ambassador Stevens was taken after the attack, providing gainful employment to Salafi terrorists from as far away as Iraq and Pakistan.

Obama had gained attention as a critic of the Iraq War, squawking about necessary wars to small crowds of wealthy elderly Marxists from Chicago, but no sooner had he gotten out of Iraq than he was jumping up and down on the diving board and splashing down into Libya to show how much smarter and better he was at fighting unnecessary wars than that ignorant Texan who shot first and nuanced later.

George W. had told the American people that there was a vital American interest in stopping Saddam, from getting his hands on WMDs. Barack H. told the American people that “it was not in our national interest” to let Gaddafi capture Benghazi. What national interest was at stake in keeping Benghazi run by homicidal Islamist militias tied to Al Qaeda will be a lot harder to find than Iraqi WMDs.

Benghazi though, as Obama put it while yukking it up with the media’s favorite liberal clown, was just one of those bumps in the road. The road began when Obama bombed Libya to keep Gaddafi from taking Benghazi. Along the way there were some bumps when American diplomats were forced to flee Benghazi, but the road goes ever on as it meanders through exotic locales such as Timbuktu, now under Al Qaeda control, and Aleppo, only under partial Al Qaeda control.

Obama pulled out of Iraq and Al Qaeda in Iraq showed up in Benghazi. Now it’s moved on to Syria. A year from now it may be in Jordan. The entire Middle East is a war zone now with terrorists and militias moving back and forth to feast on the instability and carve out their own private Benghazis where a man with a beard and a gun can provide protection in exchange for cash, and then take the weekend off to torch an American embassy or two.

This is Obama’s Brave New Middle East, born out of Benghazi, but coming everywhere. Four Americans dead in a single attack is not the scandal of it, but the symptom of it; those deaths are what happens when you tear down every allied government and replace them with mobs of gunmen whose constitution is the Koran and who despise the United States no matter how many bombs and press releases it drops in their defense.

“O brave new world,” Miranda exclaimed in The Tempest, “That has such people in’t!” Americans in Benghazi were confronted with the Brave New Middle East that Obama had made and the people who now live in it.

      Sorry, but there is NO doubt in my mind that Anyone who hates Barack Obama is a racist that hates having a black man in office!

      • Rosa

        Lets assume Obower is a white man , how can you explain this “Scandal” and the reason why he denied help and ordered to “Stand down” 3 times? He did this because he wanted his “Secret” to be kept. he is an evil who saw how they were struggling to survive for 7 hours but he decided to let them die so he can be re-elected without any problem.

        I dont live in US but i havent ever seen such a “Populace-Fooler” , “Liar” and for sure a “Murderer”. Crier in public / Killer in private… If you are seeking racists there is a good one whose name is Obower , take a look at his past..

        Just search this Scandal in internet by any word you want to see how many millions of results exist. name all of them racists, in the mind of Obower’s blind supporters it is OK for a black to even kill others and to lie to a nation but if somebody asks why, he/she must be named as racist. Shameless Lib-rats..

        "Obama is not a racist, he had a white mother and grandmother that he loved "

        Twilight Zone. You don't know what racism is.

        "…there is NO doubt in my mind that Anyone who hates Barack Obama is a racist"

        But your mind is not a source anyone should care about. Your mind is led by your emotions and indoctrination, not facts. Here we try to guide our arguments and decisions according to available facts.

        I was happy 0'Bama ran before I knew about him. I thought it was a good sign. Winning with so little experience scared me only because of that. I expected him to gain a bit more experience first. On election day in 2008 when I saw all of the media shots of the rapturous minority supporters, I thought this has to be good for America to prove that anyone can succeed.

        I am critical of all political leaders because our job is not to perform cheer-leading when they don't deserve it, and usually they don't. I gave 0'Bama every benefit of every doubt. When I heard simple statements by Jimmy Carter, who ignored the legitimate criticism by immediately labeling it racist, and then hearing nothing else since then, it opened my eyes to some of the harsh criticism I had previously ignored.

        The more I looked, the more I realized that there is a lot to be concerned about. He was not vetted because he identifies as black when it suits him. That is racism by 0'Bama and the media. He is the most opaque national leader in the USA in history as far as I know, and there are more serious unanswered questions that make this opacity unexplainable in the context of how you and the media behave about it. How could you be so gullible, and have such clearly distinct standards for judging this man as opposed to any other president? You are the racist. I believe all humans have equal rights and I believe in judging all humans according to the same standard. Making "adjustments" for race IS RACISM!

        Your mind needs serious calibration unless you only care about living a life of delusion.

      HONORABLE women leave with nothing but the kids. But WOMEN still voted, and will still vote, FOR THIS HAG OF A WOMAN. THEN BILL WAS THE HEADLINE SPEAKER AT THE DNC when the Democrats accused the Republicans of their "War on Women" when they had a RAPIST as their speaker. People didn't care. The Republicans though didn't pound this hypocrisy in the American's peoples mind on top of a 1000 more issues that could have been used.

      READ MY POST BELOW ABOUT J. CHRIST.

  • STEVEN CHAVEZ

    J. CHRISTopher Stevens was a sign that will bring down Obama, a fake CHRISTian and an actual follower of a false prophet, pedophile, and murderer: Mohammed! That makes him a Communist Muslim.

    If you research the role of J. CHRIST and MARY in the downfall of Communism in the 80's, you will first find Pope John Paul from Communist Poland and inspiration to the Solidarity Movement. Liberation Theology, a Communist invention, was born in Central America by the Communist Party USA, their fronts, and other fake Christians, as they tried to equate the teaching of Marx and Jesus. A hunger strike began at the St. Mary's Church in East Berlin and thousands supported them and three months later, the fall of the Wall. Other religious connected events took place but the finale was when Mikhail Gorbachev came on live U.S. ON CHRISTmas Day to announce the end of the Soviet Union.

    BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY was then taught by Rev. Wright, a dupe of the 80's CPUSA fraud, and one of his parishioners was BARACK OBAMA, who listened to this RACISM and hatred of the United States. This brainwashing was added to the already brainwashed Obama while in college.

    The death of J. CHRISTopher STEVENs is the sign. MARY CHRISTmas! Was Obama aiding terrorists with arms and the Turkish ambassador was visiting J. CHRISTopher to then transport those arms to Syria, again to terrorist associated with al Qaeda in a larger movement to aid the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, and Hezbollah, AND IRAN, in their takeover of the Middle East and to impose strict Islam with the ultimate goal of "WIPING ISRAEL OFF THE MAP?"

    This is the most bungling, incompetent, heartless, lack of moral values administration in history, especially to protect our own in Benghazi. Their goals were to weaken America and Israel and promote an Islamic Caliphate and society abroad to put the Muslim Brotherhood in charge, a more radical group than the previous predecessors.

    • geopeyton

      Unfortunately, they are not bungling or incompetent, they are in fact achieving the goals you accurately state, the weakening of our great nation and Israel and the strengthening of the Muslim theocracies. They are dangerous, frighteningly so, not incompetent.

      where does mohammed the pedophile come from? the sacred islamic scriptures, of course. did you just wake up from a 50 year coma? "insulting the entire muslim religion is not the answer and will cause nothing but more bad blood and violence" you miss the point. the bad blood and violence is guaranteed, no matter what we infidels do. it is in the islamic scriptures. islam is commanded by allah to wage holy war on the infidel until there are no infidels. the insults that you deplore are actually just factual representations of islam taken from their own holy scriptures, given to us from the mind of allah, the merciful, through his prophet, peace be upon him. can we help it if their own scriptures describe islam as a criminal gang bent on murder, rape, robery, lying, and pedophilia? we can call it what it is, or pretend it is what it isnt, but it doesnt matter. there will be war until either the muslim or the infidel is driven out of existence. i would prefer to get rid of islam. our political establishment, which includes not only the beloved obama, but also the hated george w bush, clearly prefers to eradicate the infidels.

      Mohammed’s favorite wife (and he had around 11 wives) was Aisha whom he married when she was 6 and consummated the marriage when she was 9. He was in his 50s when he married her. See the Islmic scriptures here http://www.faithfreedom.org/Articles/sina/ayesha….

      We also spent billions in nation building in both Iraq and Afghanistan. So much money went into the pockets of locals. Billions of money unaccounted for and that is across administrations. We tried and put our blood and treasure in nation building but they were more interested in their own bank accounts or killing other sects of Muslims when they were not killing infidels.

    • JacksonPearson

      You've had your head stuck up your butt to long. Come up for some fresh air.

      islam is a caustic blend of regurgitated paganism and twisted Bible stories. Muhammad, its lone prophet, conceived his religion solely to satiate his lust for power, sex, and money.

      Fact: Muhammad was a mass murder, rapist, thief, pedophile, pirate, liar. He never proved to be a prophet, yet gave himself that title. He doesn't pass the Deuteronomy test for prophet-hood. Nothing was ever logged or recorded, or verified with his so-called angelic messenger visions…nada, zilch until over two hundred years after his death. The Qur'an was written by four biographers from oral passages that were orally handed from generation to generation, and then after 600,000 verses, they selectively whittled them into one jumbled unholy cookbook. All evidence points to Barack Obama being Muslim.

    I think those who believe this will be Obama's Watergate forget that the press was unrelentless in their pursuit of Nixon. Even when the general public yawned at the mention of that hotel in Washington, D.C., the media still made it frontpage news and began every newscast with some bit and piece.

    Other than FOX, I have not seen this mentioned other than in passing and then without any urgency. Even Ed Henry of FOX criticized his own netwrok for covering the story. This will be no Watergate.

  • Glennd1

    ""This is Obama's brave new middle east" – wow, such ignorance of the broader sweep of history is kind of astounding. Just so you know, real scholars of the mid-east have been noting the rise of Islamism and its consequences long before Obama ran for any office. Folks here should read Bernard Lewis's "What Went Wrong" to get a sense of the much broader sweep of history at work here, a reality that this author seems unwilling to acknowledge.

    Even worse, it gives Obama credit for doing anything other than taking the path of least resistance. His failing is that he doesn't support our experiment in self-government, he doesn't think that man can govern himself. Nor does he believe that we in the West have stumbled upon something that is worth saving, so how can he possibly be a advocate for it? He doesn't have a positive view for the world that he's promoting other than some gauzy, ill defined commitment to "democracy" and internationalism that are never quite clearly articulated.

    He certainly doesn't buy into the notion of the U.S. as an empire (this should not seem such a bad thing to conservatives), but that in no way lays the bill at his door for he current uprising of Islam in the middle-east. Yes, Hilary and Barack have made a hash of this but really, is anyone surprised about this? The alienated B-Team law school associate proffessor (a cipher to his academic colleagues at the Univ of Chicago Law School), community organizer/agitator type combined with the Clinton? This was a 'brain trust' of some sort? Aided and abetted by Valerie Jarret and Susan Rice? These are not people who've ever lead anything of import before. This level of responsibility is wholly alien to them. And they are all in over their heads.

    Like Bill Clinton said, "It's amateur hour." What Hilary didn't realize is that he meant her too.

      Mr. Dense,

      The point is that for the first time, the Islamic supremacists control most of the Middle East, and the foreign policy of the most powerful nation in the world. The power they hold today is clearly unprecedented. Nobody accused 0'Bama of inventing Islam or nurturing it for 14 centuries. The point is that today that threat is greater than ever because of direct actions and policies of 0'Bama.

      Care to comment on that?

      What you say here is somewhat accurate, but that doesn't change the fact that his choices about what to do (appease Islamic supremacists) comes from his favorable views on Islam, possibly because he was deceived by his socialist-Muslim childhood in Indonesia and those who raised him there and elsewhere. He's also taking the path of least resistance in joining with radical leftists. So your defense of his intentions is hardly useful. I always say that I don't know whether he's overtly malicious or just dangerously deluded. I don't know nor do I care.

    I heard an interesting call into a talk-show this morning where a gentleman asked the host where are those people who were saved that night in Benghazi hiding? Why is the media not hot to intereview them and get what are probably very dramatic stories of a struggle between life and death?

    Why have these people made no public thanks to the families of those who were not so lucky on 9-11-12?

    Will we ever seen the operation room video of Benghazi as we got to see the attack on Bin Laden?

    Aside from the above two questions, the caller went on to ask what will be the fate of the head of AFRICOM, General Carter Ham and Rear Adminal C.M. Gaoette commander of Carrier Strike Group Three (CSG-3)? Both of these men were removed from their posts immediately following Benghazi., by whose order and for what reason? Where are they and why have they not been allowed to talk to the press? Are they in prison? What are their crimes to be fired so abruptly by this administration? More than that why does no one in the mainstream/alphabetnetworks/nyts care?

    "Four State Department officials resigned . . . [a]nd the media declared that Benghazigate was over at last. Time for everyone to move on and close the book on another one of those Obama successes that up close look a lot like failures."
    Ah yes, our corrupt, propagandistic Pravda Media dishing-up more BS to keep the low-information masses in ignorance. All in the name of protecting that Media's all-out investment in a low-information, socially-engineered Administration. America exists on life support while that polluted self-serving Media continues to ladle-out leftist fantasies rather than the realities the public deserves.
