Kingman letters: Remember Benghazi in 2016

When al Qaeda terrorists attacked the embassy in Benghazi, Libya, resulting in the murder of the ambassador and three staff members, Obama's administration immediately began obscuring details and lying about the attacks, maintaining they were a result of a spontaneous protest over a video. Obama lied about it, Clinton lied about it, and U.N. Ambassador Rice later repeated the lies several times on news programs.

Since then the administration has been silent about the events and refuses to answer the most basic questions, continuing to conceal facts and obscure the issue. It has been learned that there were some other staff members on the grounds of the embassy during the attacks, which were carried out over a period of several hours. Obama's administration is not providing the names of these personnel and not allowing any of them to be questioned as to what actual events took place.

The Obama administration persists in hindering investigation and thwarting attempts to find the truth. Meanwhile, the House of Representatives dawdles. They are indecisive over whether to call for a formal investigation or not. The Senate, controlled by Democrats, of course, will not conduct any such probe.

Obama and his minions are liars and should be held accountable for those deaths. But they will continue to obscure facts, withhold information and lie about the events until after the 2016 election.

Remember the four Americans who died in Benghazi when Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president.

Ms Athens

“We have a large segment of our population we refer to as the low information people.”

That is a lie perpetuated by a whacked out drug addict on the radio. What we have are large numbers of “no-information” people that get their information from FAUX News, whacked out loons on the radio and chain e-mails.

“Many of them get free obamaphones in exchange for voting exactly the way they are told to vote.”

Another falsehood since there is no such thing as an “obamaphone.” The life-line phone program began many years before Obama took office and was/is designed to provide a means for the poor/homeless to have emergency access as well as a phone where they can be contacted for jobs.

”The MSM (Main Stream Media for those in Rio Linda)...”

More evidence of parroting the insanity of a whacked out drug addict.

“The low infos that do follow the news do so at websites like Media Matters or MSNBC on TV where they are fed a daily dose of lies.”

The no-infos who follow the news get no news since they watch FAUX News and listen to the ravings of idiots like Beck, Limbaugh, Malkin, O’Reilly, Hannity, Levin, Ingraham, Coulter, ad naueseum.

“We pick Journalists who also love our country, who are intelligent and print the truth.”

You mean like David Barton who lied so much he actually had to admit to his lies and had his books pulled from publication? Or David Corsi – another class “A” rightie liar?

“Media Matters is another batch of liars.”

That’s always a curious meme since MM relies upon actual video and audio clips of what the Righties are up to.

Isn't it something that when a liberal cannot answer a question, all they can do is blame someone else for some unrelated problem.
When will these people accept the fact that we have a corrupt president and administration
and quit trying to cover up by changing the subject.....it ain't working and getting old!

Every Intellegence agency in the world believed Saddam Hussein had WMD, it wasn't something Bush dreamed up. The liberal media makes you believe Bush jumped to conclusions and went to war for nothing which was a total lie. Obama hasn't delivered on anything he's promissed and if we had an honest media we would "all" know it.

@ansons nephew

"to obtain additional funds for security to protect our people at every United States embassy and consulate"

And yet, at the same time, they had no trouble at all spending money for ridiculous charging stations for govt. elctrioc vehicles at the Paris embassy.

@ Anson
Oh and in regards to the deaths in Iraq...Look at the Deaths that take place in the military in a normal training rotation.

Also, look at the cause of over 50% of the deaths in Iraq....They were not caused by enemy actions, but instead are drownings, Vehicle accidents, friendly fire, Falls, Overdoses and criminal actions.


But again, your liberal mind cannot rasp any truths aside from those that forward your agenda.



Oh and this week, the PEOPLE won. The Senate vote proved that.
Get over it.

@ anson.

A few thousand Kurds proved Iraq had WMD in the form of Sarin and VX.

Or do you conveniently forget history?

Oh, that's right...Liberals have a very selective memory when it does not forward their agenda.....

Thank you Anson's Nephew. Although the death of any American, anywhere, is unforgivable nor warranted, "Benghazi", as unfortunate as it is, is just a mere bumped in the road compared to the thousands that have been killed because the lie's spread by the "Fab Four" about the WMD. With that said, there will be just as much accountability held four the four deaths in Benghazi, as there was for the thousands of our honorable troops who gave their lives to defend the outright lies perpetrated by "Bush".

Begging for votes 3 years early is amusing! I doubt anyone will even have any faint idea about your dire warnings in 3 years!

@Linda

First off, if you seem to have the play-by-play of everything that happened, where did you get that information? How do you know which source is right and which is not, hm?

As for me, I choose to side with the State Department's assessment of things because they are experts at this and have skin in the game. There are a lot of good people there making difficult decisions with limited resources. Your conspiracy theories are just that, and have, as far as I'm aware, basis in third-hand rumor more than reality.

Neither you nor I have the full picture. And it's likely that Clinton's 2016 options came and went with this before you all made a big deal about her running. Why get upset about it now, anyway? Are you out of things to worry about?

Yes, stuff happens - and I ask you why you're not upset about Anne Smedinghoff. If you even know who that is....

A & W:

You asked if things are secret, how do some of us find out about them.

The answer is extremely simple. We have a large segment of our population we refer to as the low information people. Many of them get free obamaphones in exchange for voting exactly the way they are told to vote. Most have no knowledge of our founding or what is going on in government. They are really the most dangerous to our survival.

The MSM (Main Stream Media for those in Rio Linda) are completely in obama's pocket so they simply do not report anything that would put obama in a bad light. The low infos that do follow the news do so at websites like Media Matters or MSNBC on TV where they are fed a daily dose of lies.

The rest of us who love America and are horrified we are going down so fast, dig and dig for our news. We pick Journalists who also love our country, who are intelligent and print the truth. A good rule to follow is "you shall know them by their fruits".

Al Sharpton types such as Chris Matthews can be repeatedly caught in lie after lie. Their fruit stinks. Media Matters is another batch of liars.

Doing research:

You didn't do any research- your post is a joke. Months later Benghazi has been swept under the rug as it was at the time it happened.

Do you honestly think anyone out here is so stupid as to believe a huge investigation of it is going on? The only rush we all saw was to hurry up and get obama elected and Hillary out of office so she could run in 2016 without Benghazi being laid at her feet - exactly where it belongs. At both of their feet.

It apparently doesn't bother you that obama went upstairs to bed and never even got up during the time the four Americans were being tortured and killed to ask what was going on as others watched it in real time? That is FINE with you? Simply beyond incredible.

That was about the same amount of input he gave to getting UBL. We know now he had to be forced to give the word for the men to go in - he delayed it for days, seeing which way the wind might blow politically afterwards in case it was a failure. He does deserve a gold medal for fooling the most amount of people for the longest period of time. Here's your sign.

Certainly must make those serving abroad for our government in dangerous places have second thoughts about what the hell they are even doing there.

“Let's not forget about the lies surrounding WMD's,…”


Not a problem - we ALL remember the lies told by The Criminal about WMD that resulted in the deaths of thousands of our troops. BTW – the term is WMD.

Article comment by: pl .....

you're right. It was a nasty disruption to the master plan of overthrowing Governments (Libya, Syria, before that Iraq, etc.) which had not signed onto the Central Bankers' blood-sucking plans. Additionally, look at the relatively calm and prosperous state in which some of these countries existed before 'we' replaced them with anarchy, ruin, mass murder and other atrocities, and the expulsion of previously-protected minorities (such as Christians in Iraq, and now Syria). Oh, and you thought this was actually a war on terrorism? Ha Ha Ha. And Mohammed Atta's paper passport was found by your FBI amidst radioactive molten steel, and '911' was spread throughout numerous major films for years beforehand - as I have previously written here.

If the Obama Admin was trying to hide anything, my question to you is?. How do you know about it? I'm pretty sure if the Government want to hide anything you wouldn't know it..
I'ts people like you who constantly complain that is holding this country down from progress..

@D.B.

I like how you think that an active investigation that involves tons of military intelligence and classified information should be open for all to see.

I'd also like to ask why you don't seem to be upset that Anne Smedinghoff was killed in A-stan. Is her life not important?

You know, in situations like Benghazi, it's probably very easy to get bad intel, weird intel, or conflicting intel. Much like how CNN reports stuff, then 10 minutes later is reporting something else.

Do you even know the process by which the U.S. gets its intelligence?

You know who has felt just like Susan Rice? Colin Powell. Poor guy was handed bad intel and asked to pass it along as fact and start a war over it. Did you try and crucify him over it? No, you supported going to war with a country based on made up information, and once it came out that it was made up, you STILL supported the made up information!

Why don't you gunny-sack this and actually wait until 2016 to dig it out again? Though, though it'll be picked apart AGAIN at that time, too. Talking about the 2016 election now is like talking about the 2016 hurricane season - no one has any idea what to expect, and talking about it won't change anything about it.

Let's not forget about the lies surrounding WMD's, politicians are liars, that's the bottom line. Have you ever asked people if they trust attorneys, most will say no yet most politicians are ex-attorneys. I don't trust either party but I do feel the Repub's are the lesser of two evils.

“Remember the four Americans who died in Benghazi when Hillary Rodham Clinton runs for president.”

Yes, by all mean remember it was the Republicans who blocked every attempt by the State Department – led by Mrs Clinton – to obtain additional funds for security to protect our people at every United States embassy and consulate – including Benghazi – in the world. Never forget the despicable traitors to our people as they blocked those funds and continued to do so even following the tragic Benghazi attack.

Remember the facts and vote every Republican and Teabagger out of office because the blood of Benghazi is on their hands.

And if Mrs Clinton chooses to run for president support the person who actually tried to protect our ambassadors and diplomats.

And remember the 43 different warnings that Bush had about 9/11 before you ever vote for a Republican again.
