Benghazi Coverup: obama – clinton Officials Who Were Supposed To Have Resigned Over Benghazi Are Still On Payroll

Obama’s Benghazi fall guys turn out not to be fall guys at all; they’re just playing fall guys on TV. “On Payroll After ‘Resignation’, Another ‘Lie in Web of Lies,'” by Rachel Hirshfeld for Israel National News, December 28 (thanks to Voice of the Copts):

The chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee slammed the State Department on Thursday over a report that officials who were said to have resigned over the attacks in Benghazi are still on the payroll.“This is unbelievable, the American people should be outraged at this, because it is pathetic, it is disgraceful, it is purposely misleading, it is a ruse, smoke and mirrors. This is so wrong for the State Department to do,” said Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.) on “Fox & Friends” Thursday.

“It’s just one more lie in a web of lies dealing with the terrorist attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya,” she added.

Ros-Lehtinen’s remarks came in response to an article published in The New York Post earlier this week that reported that Eric Boswell, an assistant Secretary of State who supposedly resigned, was still working at the department.

According to the report, while Boswell had resigned his post as assistant secretary, he was still maintaining other titles and responsibilities at the State Department.

Ros-Lehtinen expressed concern regarding reports that instead of resigning, officials had been re-located to other posts within the department.

“We have another attempt to purposely misdirect the American public,” she maintained.

“The spokeswoman for the State Department said the secretary has accepted the resignation of Eric Boswell, a high-level security official — she’s accepted his resignation and then she said, and the three other individuals who are mentioned in the ARB [Accountability Review Board report], the Benghazi report, have been relieved of their duties,” Ros-Lehtinen continued.

“It gave everyone the impression that four individuals had resigned as a result of their mismanagement of the terrorist attack on Benghazi when in fact we now find out all of them are still on the payroll.

“They’ve just shifted the deck chairs, they want to make the American people believe that the State Department has held people accountable for their lack of security and sending help to four brave Americans. This is incredibly inept of the State Department to continue to fool the American public,” she added….

Egyptian Cleric Threatens Christian Copts with Genocide

Be the first of your friends to like this.

Islamic leaders continue to portray the popular protests against President Morsi and his recently passed Sharia-heavy constitution as products of Egypt’s Christians. Recently, Muslim Brotherhood leader Safwat Hegazy said in an open rally, as captured on video:

A message to the church of Egypt, from an Egyptian Muslim: I tell the church — by Allah, and again, by Allah — if you conspire and unite with the remnants [opposition] to bring Morsi down, that will be another matter…. our red line is the legitimacy of Dr. Muhammad Morsi. Whoever splashes water on it, we will splash blood on him.”

More recently, Dr. Wagdi Ghoneim — who earlier praised Allah for the death of the late Coptic Pope Shenouda, cursing him to hell and damnation on video — made another video, entitled, “A Notice and Warning to the Crusaders in Egypt,” a reference to the nation’s Copts, which he began by saying, “You are playing with fire in Egypt, I swear, the first people to be burned by the fire are you [Copts].” The video was made in the context of the Tahrir protests against Morsi: Islamic leaders, such as Hegazy and Ghoneim, seek to portray the Copts as dominant elements in those protests; according to them, no real Muslim would participate. Ghoneim even went on to say that most of the people at the protests were Copts, “and we know you hid your [wrist] crosses by lowering your sleeves.”

The heart of Ghoneim’s message was genocidal: “The day Egyptians — and I don’t even mean the Muslim Brotherhood or Salafis, regular Egyptians — feel that you are against them, you will be wiped off the face of the earth. I’m warning you now: do not play with fire!”

Along with trying to incite Egypt’s Muslims against the Copts, and threatening them with annihilation, Ghoneim made other telling assertions, including:

  • Addressing the Christians of Egypt as “Crusaders,” once again showing Islam’s simplistic, black-and-white vision, which clumps all Christians — of all nations, past and present, regardless of historical context and denomination — as one, in accordance with an Islamic tradition that states “All infidels are one religion.”
  • Comparing Christian Copts to animals: “Respect yourselves and live with us and we will protect you… Why?… because Allah has forbidden me to be cruel to animals. I’m not trying to compare you to animals … but if I am not cruel to animals or plants, shall I be cruel to a soul created by Allah? You are an infidel in Allah’s sight — and it is for him to judge you. However, when you live in my country, it is forbidden for me to be unjust to you — but that doesn’t mean we are equal. No, oh no.”
  • Telling Copts: “I want to remind you that Egypt is a Muslim country…. if you don’t like the Muslim Sharia, you have eight countries that have a Cross on their flag [in Europe], so go to them. However, if you want to stay here in Egypt with us, know your place and be respectful. You already have all your rights — by Allah, even more than Muslims… No one investigates your homes, no one investigates your churches. In fact, in the past, the Islamic groups used to fake their IDs and put Christian names on them when they would go out for [jihadi] operations, so that when the police would catch them, they would see they are Christians and be left alone.” Ghoneim misses the irony of what he says: Police know that Egyptian Christians are not going to engage in terror; Egyptian Muslims are suspect.
  • Saying, in mocking tones, towards the end: “What do you think — that America will protect you? Let’s be very clear, America will not protect you. If so, it would have protected the Christians of Iraq when they were being butchered!” — a reference to the fact that, after the U.S. ousted Saddam Hussein, half of Iraq’s Christian population has either been butchered or fled the nation, and all under U.S. auspices.
  • Claiming that the Copts are only four million while the Muslims are 85 million — even as Coptic Orthodox Church registries maintain that there are more than 15 million Copts, and most outside analysts say 10 million, in Egypt— and adding that Morsi was only being nice by saying, as he did during one of his speeches: “There are no minorities in Egypt.” Ghoneim fails to explain, if Copts are so few — four million compared to 85 million — how could they be so influential, and flood the Tahrir protests with such large numbers?
  • Mocking new Coptic Pope Tawadros—not surprising considering his great hate for the former Pope—by claiming that the new Pope urged Copts to protest; that the new Pope wants to see Morsi and Sharia law fall, and by adding, “Is it not enough that you have all those monasteries?”

Special Operations Speaks: State Department Ineptitude and Coverup of Benghazigate

December 20, 2012 1 comment

benghazigate-report.jpg

 

Dear Fellow Americans:

On Tuesday night, the State Department finally published a report on what their so-called Accountability Review Board has determined happened in Libya, and according to them, two things are certain:

There was massive leadership failure, and not a single person should be held responsible.

You heard that right.

Despite isolating 24 distinct and major recommendations for how the State Department could’ve avoided this travesty, apparently they “did not find reasonable cause to determine that any individual U.S. government employee breached his or her duty.” Really?

SIGN THE PETITION TO DEMAND AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION
End the Benghazi Smoke Screen, Hold Senior Officials Accountable

 

benghazigate-meme.jpgLet’s list just a few of ways that State Department officials did “breach their duty.”

•    First and most outrageously, U.S. officials actually lost the Ambassador for several hours – and only found him because an Arabic-speaking man called the consulate from the Ambassador’s cell phone.

•    There were “systemic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels [leaving Benghazi security] grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place.”

•    The security staff was “inexperienced… short-term… and inadequate.”

•    The Consulate in Benghazi “was not a high priority for Washington when it came to security-related requests, especially those relating to staffing.”

•    Despite evidence of growing unrest and increased terrorist threat and the fact it was the anniversary of 9/11, the attacks were “were unanticipated in their scale and intensity.”

•    As we suspected, an unmanned drone was dispatched and at the scene at the time, meaning top officials had visual feed of the attack – leaving no question that they willfully misled the American people by attributing this to a protest.

In what world could anyone consider these points within the bounds of the State Department’s duty to the people of the United States?

Is basic competence not a requirement for being a senior official at the State Department?

Is ignoring a growing and present terrorist threat something that gets a “meets expectations” on their yearly reviews?

Is intentionally lying to the very public that they are supposed to serve all in a day’s work for Hillary Clinton and her top-tier cronies?

 

SIGN THE PETITION TO DEMAND AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION
End the Benghazi Smoke Screen, Hold Senior Officials Accountable

 

The State Department can pretend that this “independent board” has cleared them of malfeasance, but no reasonable person could call this massive incompetence even remotely acceptable.

We’re glad that after months of putting serious pressure on the Obama Administration we’re finally starting to see some answers – answers that confirm many of our suspicions, and allude to the confirmation of others.

That said, this report is the bureaucratic version of a curved test grade; by their assessment, because the entire system failed, no one is individually responsible.

It’s time for the obfuscation and the smoke screens to end. We have to keep up the pressure so that whoever caused this internal breakdown is held accountable.

We can’t accept the insider political protectionism that Hillary Clinton is pushing. She “accepts their recommendations” but clearly has no intentions of removing those officials who caused her department’s systemic failure – or of accepting any culpability for it herself.

We must demand that these utterly incompetent senior officials be identified and punished to the highest possible extent.

 

SIGN THE PETITION TO DEMAND AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION
End the Benghazi Smoke Screen, Hold Senior Officials Accountable

 

Our men and women abroad are losing their lives because of the Obama Administration’s leadership failure. Their families, their fellow armed forces, and the American people deserve real answers, and real changes in this Administration.

And we won’t stop until they get it.

Sincerely,

The obama Regime Arming islamic Terrorists Using American Taxpayer Funds

December 13, 2012 Leave a comment

While our own Military goes through drastic budget cuts, cuts in medical services, prescription services, pay cuts, safety gear limitations and our troops are demoralized and forced to appease islamic terrorists. The obama regime is aiding and abetting the KNOWN AND IDENTIFIED enemies of this once great Nation.  This used to be called TREASON. What happened to our TREASON laws?  Why are we providing BILLION$ in financial support, BILLION$ in military tanks, bombs and F-16 fighter jets……TO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS?

IDF: Summary Of Events For Past 8 Days of Fighting In Israel/gaza.

Operation Pillar of Defense: Summary of Events

Published on: November 22, 2012

On November 14, in response to incessant rocket attacks from the Gaza Strip, the IDF launched a widespread campaign against terror targets in Gaza. The operation, called Pillar of Defense, had two main goals: cripple terror organizations in the Gaza Strip and defend Israelis living under fire. Here’s a summary of the events which took place during the operation.

The operation opened when the IDF surgically targeted Ahmed Jabari, head of Hamas’ military wing in the Gaza Strip. Jabari was directly responsible for executing terror attacks against Israel in the past.

 

During the next eight days, the IDF targeted more than 1,500 terror sites across the Gaza Strip. The sites that were targeted were positively identified by precise intelligence over the course of several months, including:

Pillar of Defense Summary

Top-ranking Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists who were targeted included:

  • Ahmed Jabari, head of Hamas’ military wing – targeted on November 14
  • Hab’s Hassan Us Msamch, senior operative in Hamas’ police – targeted on November 15
  • Ahmed Abu Jalal, Commander of the military wing in Al-Muazi – targeted on November 16
  • Khaled Shaer, senior operative in the anti-tank operations – targeted on November 16
  • Osama Kadi, senior operative in the smuggling operations in the southern Gaza Strip – targeted on November 17
  • Muhammad Kalb, senior operative in the aerial defense operations – targated on November 17
  • Ramz Harb, Islamic Jihad senior operative in propaganda in Gaza city – targeted on November 19

For the first time ever — Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist groups fired long-range rockets, such as the Fajr-5, toward Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Though the IDF severely damaged the terrorist organizations’ long-range rocket arsenal, more than 3.5 million Israelis are still under the threat of Hamas’ rocket fire.

Throughout the operation, the IDF did everything that it could to minimize harm to civilians in Gaza. Despite the IDF’s warnings, Hamas urged Palestinian civilians in Gaza to ignore the IDF warnings.

During the eight days of the operation — and in the weeks leading up to it — life was unbearable for more than 3.5 million Israelis. From November 14 to November 21, Palestinian terrorist groups fired more than 1,506 rockets at Israel.

Of those 1,506 rockets fired from Gaza, more than 800 rockets struck Israel, damaging homes, schools and other civilian areas. Some of rockets reached the Tel Aviv and Jerusalem areas.

421 rockets were intercepted by the Iron Dome, which saved countless Israeli lives. 152 rockets fired from Gaza crashed back into Gaza.

Despite the IDF’s best efforts to protect everyone in Israel, five Israeli civilians were killed due to rocket fire, while an additional 240 Israeli civilians were injured. In addition, Cpl. Yosef Fartuk, 18, from Emmanuel, was killed on November 20 by a rocket fired from Gaza into Israel.

Since Hamas seized power in the Gaza Strip in 2007, the terrorist group has turned the coastal area into a forward base for Iran. The IDF is determined to continue targeting sites that are used to carry out terror attacks against Israel and its citizens.

Hitlery and Hamas…. A Picture Worth 57 Words

November 21, 2012 1 comment

 

Take a good, hard look at hitlery with her islamic terrorist pal, abbas, today.  

communists and islamic terrorists, hamas…… BFF’s.

 

We, the People are their enemies, while the enemies of America are their allies. They’ve successfully redefined the term “terrorist” and “TREASON”.

 

I wonder if she brought iranian terrorist valerie jarrett with her to make some more dirty deals with iran, hezbollah and hamas.
