Running out the Benghazi clock

Running out the Benghazi clock

Only a few more days of stonewalling and hurt feelings, and Obama may get away with it.

If he’s re-elected, it’s too late to matter.  If he’s not re-elected, it’s too late to matter.

Maybe this is a sign Benghazi is permeating the popular consciousness in time, via JWF, Uh Oh: Jay Leno Brings Up Benghazi (h/t Instapundit):

Well, the dam has burst with the late night comedians. He’ll probably be the only one since we doubt the other bootlickers even know what happened over there.

Now if only the media outside of Fox News would bother asking questions. Well, actually someone at the WaPo does go there, albeit seven weeks late.

Last night, Newt Gingrich puts it out there, that the Benghazi Massacre will be front and center again, today or tommorrow….

    If it really comes out, from a major network no less, that Obama overruled procedure that would have saved the last two lives, if not the ambassador … it would be “game over” for Obama I think.

    It would reveal Obama’s “I am offended you suggest I lied, or was political”, was indeed just part of his lie and coverup. It would reveal that the whole video charade was orchestrated AFTER the initial “this is a terrorist act” comment, completely to cover the dereliction of duty for political gain.

    Hard to imagine networks releasing this, though also hard to see them exposed as withholding it to help Obama. Of course many are convinced it is true, but revealing this on networks equals a Romney landslide, as I see it. An October surprise of Obama’s own making.

    (Impeachment proceedings should commence immediately after the election, to stop lame duck Obama from doing more damage?)

      “I am offended you suggest I lied, or was political”

      Right up there with…

      “I did not have sex with that woman…”, and…

      “I am not a crook!”

I cannot recall a more contemptible example of press malfeasance in the history of the United States.


For shame Prof.
“actually someone at the Wapo does go there albeit seven weeks late…”
The bravest, the very bravest, of you right-wing bloggers works at the Wapo, and she’s been going to Benghazi, certainly once, often twice or more daily.
The gall and wormwood poured out on her DAILY and her stalwart defiance in writing wht she believes puts some of you guys to shame.
She is no Alan Colmes or Juan Williams on FOX (both of them are token Liberals with laughable biases). This is a woman who plies her trade wih heart and guts, and supported Mitt Romney as Republican candidate while you people were still star-gazing open-mouthed at the likes of Michelle Bachmann and Newt…
I needn’t tell you Prof. that I refer to Jen Rubin, but I will tell you Sir that she is a WOW, a Woman of Worth, and an Eshet Chayil!

    Jeebus, you need to get out more (out in the blog-0-sphere, that is).

    Rubin is doing good stuff on Benghazi, but she occupies a niche between a true New Media blog and the Mushroom Media.

    There are a round dozen blogs that have been on this from the git-go, and have been razors.

      What an incompetent reader you must be!
      The Prof linked to a blog that said that “someone at the WaPo, the WAPO, the Washington Post does go there, albeit seven weeks late…”
      Do you actually KNOW where Jen Rubin writes? Have you actually READ Jen Rubin at the WaPo(
      Can you tell us (don’t cheat!) what her blog is called?
      That was my beef with the Prof; he too obviously doesn’t read Jen Rubin of the WaPo (Washington Post, in case you didn’t read the earlier references) and ignorantly linked to an ignorant comment by another ignorant blogger ignorant of the sterling, precious work that jen does, day in, day out on the maw of the beast!
      ( just in case you don’t have the nous to look it up yourself! Copy and past works fine!

Nixon ran out the Watergate clock in 1972.

    Coupla thangs…

    1. nobody died in Watergate

    2. the media was not in collusion with Nixon

    3. Nixon (bad as he was) was never the threat to the Constitution that Pres. Not Optimal IS

This administration has proved they will stop at nothing to stay in power–including killing people that get in their way.

( – President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.

And there are records…and recordings…that nobody is asking about…

with a FEW important exceptions.

Sharyl Attkisson of CBS, who also was key in F & F reporting, has been one of the very few in the Mushroom Media on this story.

There is nothing “classified” about the bones of this story, or anything that an “investigation” waits on. Who did what where and when is a matter of plain old asking questions and insisting on answers.

obama claims he ordered that everything possible to keep Americans safe during Benghazi Massacre was issued. Produce that order then, Mr. President.

Only Potus can issue Cross Border Authority (CBA).

obama is learning that throwing the CIA under the bus over his role in the Benghazi Massacre has consequences.

I liked Charles Krauthammer’s characterization last night on Special Report. This is a paraphrase but it’s very close to what he said:

‘The mainstream media wrote hundreds, and hundreds, and hundreds of pages about an outed CIA agent safely ensconced in Washington, D.C., but has experienced an epidemic of in-curiosity about a murdered ambassador.’

It was especially good because he was sitting next to Charles Lane, a member of the WaPo editorial board.

[…] Running Out the Benghazi Clock Only a few more days of stonewalling and hurt feelings, and Obama may get away with it. […]

We need a member of the military or CIA who is connected with the events and/or cover-up to come forward. Unless this is pushed by someone credible, into the face of the mainstream media, Obama could potentially win this election. If he does good luck on learning anything more. I hope that if either Ham or the Admiral connected to the Stennis was relieved due to Benghazi, they come forward before the election.

The why of this cover up is disturbing, and sometimes I honestly wonder how this country will respond if we ever do find out the truth. The cover-up is so bad and desperate, that common sense dictates that whatever they are trying to hide is bad. Very bad.

“If he’s re-elected, it’s too late to matter. If he’s not re-elected, it’s too late to matter.”

No, it will always matter, there will just be nothing anyone can do about it. One of the most angering things about the country is that there is neither accountability nor personal repercussion for any of these people.
The president, half, or more, of his administration, its boot licking, obstructionist, legislators and staffs, and money grubbing sycophants and dupes should be in the dock. It has been my opinion for months that they will all escape scot-free to lives of celebrity, university presidencies, and fancy office suites on K Street. They will continue their lives as coddled manipulators, collecting fat salaries accompanied by generous benefit plans supplementing those provided by taxpayers, and continue to pay for nothing themselves. They are a wretched lot who have capitalized on fifty years of legal and legislative neglect and pushed the Republic to the edge of its ability to function meaningfully as a country of laws. If we have not yet moved from this to becoming a country of passing regimes (Caroline Glick) and do nothing else we should provide a means to ensure that nothing like the legal, administrative, and legislative corruption of this administration can happen again, and if it does there will be no statute of limitations for the transgressors. Ever.

No laughing matter. The Obama administration might be involved in a gun running operation and arming an Al Queda sympathizers to toppled Assad. And you thought that after Obama elected we are done with nation building. What is the likelihood that these guns or manspad) will not turn against us?

I don’t really think we can say “Obama lied” is an October surprise. Now, if someone said, Obama looked at us and told the truth…….”THAT” would be a surprise…..(just saying)

Blackfive has a fascinating posting today regarding some strange happenings in the general officer sphere that might have some bearing on something, or not! Still, that article is worth reading.
