“Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them, or in adhering to their Enemies, giving them Aid and Comfort.”
It is becoming obvious to everyone, except the MSM who conveniently ignores the public's outrage, the POTUS let Americans be butchered at a diplomatic post in Benghazi, when the assets were ready and capable of preventing this assault on America and Americans.
Once the attack commenced at 10:00 p.m. Libyan time (4:00 p.m. EST), we know the mission security staff immediately contacted Washington and our embassy in Tripoli. It now appears the White House, Pentagon, State Department, CIA, NDI, JCS and various other military commands monitored the entire battle in real time via frantic phone calls from our compound and video from an overhead drone. The cries for help and support went unanswered.
Our Benghazi mission personnel, including our two former Navy SEALs, fought for seven hours without assistance other than help from our embassy in Tripoli, which launched within 30 minutes an aircraft carrying six Americans and 16 Libyan security guards. It is understood they were instrumental in helping 22 of our Benghazi mission personnel escape the attack.
While our president and members of his administration continue to test new lies trying to deflect blame for this tragedy, a far greater crime than refusing to help American diplomats in peril is being revealed; a crime much more sinister when the question of our president's dubious and possibly duplicitous loyalties and sympathies are brought into question.
This dark page of America's recent history will be both an outrage and shame that America will need to live down and revenge as soon as possible, but there is another question on the horizon. Was President Obama supplying weapons to al-Qaeda?
We now know wh
y Ambassador Christopher Stevens had to be in Benghazi the night of 9/11 to meet a Turkish representative, even though he feared for his safety. According to various reports, one of Stevens’ main missions in Libya was to facilitate the transfer of much of Gadhafi’s military equipment, including the deadly SA-7 – portable SAMs – to Islamists and other al Qaeda-affiliated groups fighting the Assad Regime in Syria. In an excellent article, Aaron Klein states that Stevens routinely used our Benghazi consulate (mission) to coordinate the Turkish, Saudi Arabian and Qatari governments’ support for insurgencies throughout the Middle East. Further, according to Egyptian security sources, Stevens played a “central role in recruiting Islamic jihadists to fight the Assad Regime in Syria.”
In actions reminiscent of the Obama/Holder Fast and Furious debacle, but of a much larger and more sinister nature; since supplying arms to drug cartels to use against Mexican nationals and our border security personnel is fairly insignificant when compared to arming our enemies with weapons that will be used to kill American troops and to shoot down civilian airliners. (Yes, for you Liberals, this latest transgression will put you in the crosshairs of the Islamic Fundamentalist if you fly commercially.)
While the office of the presidency is playing international security with the ethics of a Chicago gang member, desperate American pleas for help were ignored and our enemy is being armed.
In the final analysis, after the refusal of the state directed media to address the terrorist attack in Benghazi, it is the power of the president's own propaganda machine that will trap him with the same flowery silliness typical of Vanity Fair's adulation of Obama.
A decision Barack Obama had made, more or less on his own. The president’s decision reached forward into the impersonal future—Qaddafi would be killed, Libya would hold its first free elections—but it also reached back into the personal past, to the things that had made Obama capable of walking alone into a room with a pencil and walking out a bit later with a conviction….He was especially alive to the power of a story to influence the American public. He believed he had been elected chiefly because he had told a story. Now the United States had forged a broad international coalition to help people who claimed to share our values rid themselves of a tyrant.
Without a doubt, Americans need to rid the world of a tyrant, but this one is much closer to home.
