Special Operations Speaks: State Department Ineptitude and Coverup of Benghazigate

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?

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?

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.

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,

Facebook, obama’s Army Of Internet Fascists, Censoring Navy SEAL’s To Help Cover obama’s Benghazi Scandal, Coverup and TREASON.

TWG: I cancelled my facebook account a long time ago when I saw how they were censoring Conservatives, Independents and Libertarians, AS WELL AS OUR MEMBERS OF THE MILITARY AND VETERANS GROUPS  while allowing islamic terrorists and other obama supporters to post lies, hate speech and vile  threats of rape, torture and murder against us.  Once I learned about Mark Zuckerberg’s involvement ,  secret meetings and intimate dinner parties with the obama regime, as well as the “stimulus” money he received from his pal obama back in ’09, I realized that facebook is nothing more than the propaganda machine for the obama regime.  Mark Zuckerberg is obama’s personal goebbels wanna-be RUNT.  I cannot understand why there are any Conservatives left on facebook after the allegiance they’ve demonstrated with the islamics, communists, marxists, socialists and racists within the obama regime.  Are YOU still using facebook? If so, WHY?  More importantly, are YOU a member of the United States Military or Veterans Group who is supporting the obama regime?  WHY, AND WHAT MADE YOU A TRAITOR TO THIS NATION AND TO YOUR FELLOW VETERANS???

Facebook Censors Navy SEALS to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate

Benghazi Coverup Scandal, obama Regime Canning Military Brass. USS Stennis Rear Admiral Charles M. Gaouette

Gaouette 600x400

 

The obama regime also canned General Ham, Head of AFRICOM, during their Benghazigate coverup.  WHEN WILL OUR MILITARY WAKE UP, OPEN THEIR EYES, DO THEIR JOB AND KEEP THE OATH THEY TOOK WHEN THEY PUT THEIR UNIFORMS ON?????!!!?!!?!?!: https://twg2a.wordpress.com/2012/10/28/benghazi-coverup-scandal-obama-regime-getting-rid-of-military-brass-to-hide-scandal/

 

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Navy said Saturday it is replacing the admiral in command of an aircraft carrier strike group in the Middle East, pending the outcome of an internal investigation into undisclosed allegations of inappropriate judgment.

Rear Adm. Charles M. Gaouette is being sent back to the USS John C. Stennis’ home port at Bremerton, Washington stae, in what the Navy called a temporary reassignment. The Navy said he is not formally relieved of his command of the Stennis strike group but will be replaced by Rear Adm. Troy M. Shoemaker, who will assume command until the investigation is completed.

It is highly unusual for the Navy to replace a carrier strike group commander during its deployment….(Con’t)

Furious Military Families Are Outing the obama Regime

October 27, 2012 4 comments

[TWG:  It’s appalling to me that we have Veterans and current members of the Military supporting obama and his marxist regime.  They are TRAITORS, spitting in the faces and on the graves  of each and every one of our Veterans who’ve ever served this Nation in the fight against fascist dictators and evildoers.   General Colin Powell expressed support for that marxist back during the ’08 “election”, and reiterated his support for marxism last week.  Apparently, General Powell approves of the fact that  marxist obama, clinton and panetta is responsible for the deaths of 4 Americans in Benghazi, two of them being Navy SEAL’s. He approves of the fact that the obama regime were trafficking weapons to muslim  terrorists within al queda and the muslim brotherhood, and that the obama regime’s PROVEN allegiance is with islamic terrorists. Apparently, the Veterans and members of the Military currently supporting the marxists approve of how they’re handling islam and in their marxist/fascist ideologies.  THEY ARE TRAITORS TO THIS NATION AND TO EVERY VETERAN WHO HAS EVER SERVED. CALL THEM WHAT THEY ARE.  MARXIST TRAITORS.]

Military Families are Outing Obama

By Karin McQuillan

American military and State Department families that have lost their sons in the war against Islamic jihadis are outing President Obama for playing politics with the lives (and deaths) of their sons.  Speaking out in some of the most painful interviews ever shown on television, they directly blame the president for the loss of their sons’ lives.  Their accusations speak directly to Obama’s competence in defending our national security.

Iran is on the brink of possessing nuclear weapons.  Egypt’s elected President Mubarak, the keystone to stability in the Middle East for the last 30 years, was pressured by President Obama to step down in favor of the terror group the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Benghazi embassy was denied Marine protection, even on 9/11, with the subsequent tragedy and White House cover-up.  We haven’t lost an ambassador since Jimmy Carter’s incompetence.  Obama’s Middle East policy has been a disaster, with one exception — the killing of Osama bin Laden by Navy SEAL Team 6.

The president ran the special ops raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound with one eye on national security and the other on political opportunism.  Intelligence was compromised because there was political advantage to Obama to do so.  Within a day, the White House divulged details of the attack, including that it was carried out by SEAL Team Six.

Three months later, 22 men from SEAL Team 6 were dead, victims of Obama’s policies and politics.  This story has been buried, until this 9/11….(Con’t)

The REAL Reason Behind Benghazi Terrorist Attacks – obama Regime GunRunning To Their Jihadist Pals In Syria….

October 24, 2012 15 comments

***UPDATED***

Ambassador Stevens was the point man for Obama to funnel arms to the Libya rebels first to take out Gaddafi, and now from Libya to Syria – through Turkey – to take out Assad.

It’s pretty compelling: Watch the video

*************************************************

President Obama’s once seemingly unstoppable march toward re-election hit what he might call “bumps in the road” in Benghazi, Libya, late on Sept. 11, 2012. It might be more accurate to describe the effect of the well-planned and -executed, military-style attack on a diplomatic facility there as the political equivalent of a devastating improvised explosive device on the myth of the unassailability of the Obama record as commander in chief.

Thanks to intrepid investigative reporting — notably by Bret Baier and Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Aaron Klein at WND.com and Clare Lopez at RadicalIslam.org — and information developed by congressional investigators, the mystery is beginning to unravel with regard to what happened that night and the reason for the subsequent, clumsy official cover-up now known as Benghazigate.

The evidence suggests that the Obama administration has not simply been engaging, legitimating, enriching and emboldening Islamists who have taken over or are ascendant in much of the Middle East. Starting in March 2011, when American diplomat J. Christopher Stevens was designated the liaison to the “opposition” in Libya, the Obama administration has been arming them, including jihadists like Abdelhakim Belhadj, leader of the al Qaeda franchise known as the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group.

Once Moammar Gadhafi was overthrown, Stevens was appointed ambassador to the new Libya run by Mr. Belhadj and his friends. Not surprisingly, one of the most important priorities for someone in that position would be to try to find and secure the immense amount of armaments that had been cached by the dictator around the country and systematically looted during and after the revolution.

One of the places in Libya most awash with such weapons in the most dangerous of hands is Benghazi. It now appears that Stevens was there — on a particularly risky day, with no security to speak of and despite now copiously documented concerns about his own safety and that of his subordinates — for another priority mission: sending arms recovered from the former regime’s stocks to the “opposition” in Syria. As in Libya, the insurgents are known to include al Qaeda and other Shariah-supremacist groups, including none other than Abdelhakim Belhadj.

Fox News has chronicled how the Al Entisar, a Libyan-flagged vessel carrying 400 tons of cargo, docked on Sept. 6 in the Turkish port of Iskenderun. It reportedly supplied both humanitarian assistance and arms — including deadly SA-7 man-portable surface-to-air missiles — apparently destined for Islamists, again including al Qaeda elements, in Syria.

What cries out for further investigation — and debate in the remaining days of this presidential election — is whether this shipment was part of a larger covert Obama effort to transfer weapons to our enemies that could make the Iran-Contra scandal, to say nothing of Operation Fast and Furious, pale by comparison.

Investigative journalist Aaron Klein has reported that the “consulate in Benghazi” actually was no such thing. He observes that although administration officials have done nothing to correct that oft-repeated characterization of the facility where the murderous attack on Stevens and his colleagues was launched, they call it a “mission.” What Mr. Klein describes as a “shabby, nondescript building” that lacked any “major public security presence” was, according to an unnamed Middle Eastern security official, “routinely used by Stevens and others to coordinate with the Turkish, Saudi and Qatari governments on supporting the insurgencies in the Middle East, most prominently the rebels opposing Assad’s regime in Syria.”

We know that Stevens‘ last official act was to hold such a meeting with an unidentified “Turkish diplomat.” Presumably, the conversation involved additional arms shipments to al Qaeda and its allies in Syria. It also may have involved getting more jihadi fighters there. After all, Mr. Klein reported last month that, according to sources in Egyptian security, our ambassador was playing a “central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.”

It gets worse. Last week, Center for Security Policy senior fellow and former career CIA officer Clare Lopez observed that there were two large warehouse-type buildings associated with the so-called “consulate” whose purpose has yet to be disclosed. As their contents were raided in the course of the attack, we may never know for sure whether they housed — and were known by the local jihadis to house — arms, perhaps administered by the two former Navy SEALs killed along with Stevens.

What we do know is that the New York Times — one of the most slavishly pro-Obama publications in the country — reported in an Oct. 14 article, “Most of the arms shipped at the behest of Saudi Arabia and Qatar to supply Syrian rebel groups fighting the government of Bashar Assad are going to hard-line Islamic jihadists, and not the more secular opposition groups that the West wants to bolster.”

In short, it seems President Obama has been engaged in gun-walking on a massive scale. The effect has been to equip America’s enemies to wage jihad not only against regimes it once claimed were our friends, but inevitably against us and our allies as well. That would explain his administration’s desperate and now failing bid to mislead the voters through the serial deflections of Benghazigate.
