Why Benghazi and Fort Hood are the Same Cover Up

Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Muslims carry out a devastating attack on Americans. The assembled information points to the Islamist motivation of the attackers, but Obama and the media cover up the real motivations and look for a third factor to assign blame to.

Nidal Hasan was suffering from second-hand PTSD. A military assault on a consulate in the middle of a city dominated by Islamists was due to an offensive YouTube video. In both cases the truth had to be covered up and quickly.

We know now that Obama’s people knew within hours that the attack on Benghazi had been carried out by Ansar Al-Sharia, affiliated with Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood via its origins in the Feb 17 Brigade hired by the State Department to protect their consulate.

Similarly it was quickly known that Nidal Hasan had made repeated Islamist remarks and sympathized with Islamist terrorists. As in Benghazi the warning signs were ignored. Islamism was treated as a legitimate point of view, rather than an obvious security risk.

The Islamist wolves were brought into the fold and then the cover up began, both to hide the original ineptness that allowed the attacks to happen and for the purposes of promoting the larger cover up of what Islam really is and what its most devout followers practice and believe.

The Fort Hood Massacre became workplace violence. Nidal Hasan’s beard must be shaved so that Americans don’t get the impression that he’s an Islamist. Just an employee who snapped.

The Benghazi consulate attack became a protest gone awry. As so many things seem to go awry when they’re being covered up. It became one of those spontaneous attacks motivated by anger over speech offensive to Muslims, not evidence that Obama’s Libya policy allowed Islamists to take over major chunks of North Africa and that Al Qaeda is now bigger than ever thanks to Obama’s illegal Libyan War.

This is the same cover up that appears after each act of Muslim violence. It is the single greatest cover up of the 21st Century.
