Benghazi – the cover up


As some of my readers will be aware, I am not a subscriber to the kidnap theory regarding the terrorist attack in Benghazi. I am of the opinion that the story fed to us was spin because the White House Administration chokes on itself every time there is a terrorist attack. Look at how they demeaned the attack at Ft. Hood and called it a workplace accident, rather than be truthful and call it a terrorist attack. Now, with the White House Administration throwing Hillary Clinton and the State Department under the bus, and the release of further information about what happened during the attack, I need to rethink a lot of the information that made up that spin. I continue to not believe the kidnapping theory. In fact I think that perhaps those photographs are being misinterpreted…. I remain open minded on what those photos are in fact telling me… I have not decided one way or the other about whether or not the stories that Ambassador Stevens was dragged through the streets is in fact true…. if I see more official information then I will have a change of mind.

However, I have thought very hard about the story that was given by the White House and in particular by Susan Rice, that there had been a protest in the streets and that this was a spontaneous attack. By thinking about this, it has become clearer to me that there are missing details. I do not want to go there at this point in time, but I do wonder about who else was behind the attack.

For this reason, I will go back in time to the early part of 2011, and the protests in Tunisia, Cairo and then the activity in Libya. The meme has always been that each uprising was both inspired by the events in the other country. It is necessary to have a second look at these events because I am now of the opinion that this is where the White House got its idea that the Al Qaeda terrorist attack in Benghazi spontaneous.

I have always maintained that the Libyan situation was different from that in Cairo. I continue to have that belief. The Cairo and Egyptian uprising was not spontaneous but it was pre-planned and had been planned for a long time. The Tunisian uprising served as a trigger to those in Egypt to get the ball rolling. We do in fact see that there were other uprisings in Morocco, Bahrain, Yemen, Jordan and several other M.E. countries. The Syrian uprising came a little bit later than the others (and I am still very open minded on that situation because it continues to get very messy).  What drew my attention to Libya in the first place was a news report that stated Gadhafi, who was visiting an African country at the time suddenly returned home. It is important to keep that in mind when reviewing what took place. As I read up on the subject, I discovered that Gadhafi had called one of the leaders of the rebellion to his office and had words with him as he was trying to avert a protest. I assume that after this point Gadhafi then got his minions to start hiring from overseas countries the snipers who were responsible for killing people in the streets. Gadhafi was extremely ruthless, and we must not forget that fact. He pretended to the West that he was a changed man, yet he was sponsoring terrorism in Africa.

So let’s look at what sparked the civil war in Libyan that ended with the death of Gadhafi. The situation was started by a small group of protesters. I do not believe that they were inspired by the situation in either Tunis or Egypt because their protest involved a situation that had a history going back to the 1990s when close to 1000 political prisoners were killed by the Gadhafi regime. The people involved in the protest were relatives of the deceased and they were still trying to find out what happened. They had gathered because a lawyer involved in their case had been called in by the regime. They were peacefully standing in the town square when they were fired upon and someone was killed. There was a funeral, and the “soldiers” fired upon those in the funeral procession. There were more protests, more people joined in the protest, more deaths followed, until the day that one man, a person who did not believe in jihad, decided to make a move – he turned his car into a bomb, and he then drove his car at the wall of the fort, the rest is history.

As you can see from this, there is a bit of a history and there is spontaneous protest involved in this part of the story. I am betting that the White House Administration seized upon these facts to cover themselves and claimed that the people in Benghazi were once more following Cairo by choosing to protest. Except that the protest never happened in the first place.

The debrief from agents who were on the ground at the time that all of this was happening made no mention of any protest in the square or anywhere else. The captain of the 17th February brigade who was a witness to what took place also makes no mention of any protest. In fact the 17th February brigade were loyal to Christopher Stevens, but they were also overcome by the attackers. Their barracks were set alight. There is no mention in this report about the dead and wounded Libyans, but according to one report that I had read after the terrorist attack, it was something like 10 dead Libyans and many others who were wounded as they fought against the insurgents.

Personally, I think that something is missing in the telling and re-telling of this story. What is bothering me is that in Benghazi there are pro-Gadhafi elements, as well as the Islamist elements. The people of Benghazi drove out Ansar al-Sharia. They did the same thing in Derna. There was mention of the people being tricked into attacking a pro-government group by people loyal to Gadhafi. That remains a possibility. There is an Egyptian connection because the leader of the attack was an Egyptian jihadist with links to Al Qaeda, and he was trying to shore himself up with this attack. I had seen an early report that drones had been keeping a watch on his activity in the desert, at his training camp. This report had tied Ansar al-Shariah to the attack, and to the military training camp in the desert. Since then I noted a report where Turkey arrested 2 Tunisians under suspicion that they were involved in the attack. One of the things missing in my view, is an explanation for those marks on the house walls.

After reading the agents’ statement, I have a clearer idea of the situation. Ambassador Stevens was not taken to the annexe at the other location. The safe house was a room within the building where he was located during visits to Benghazi. It was a safe room. The intruders failed to get into the room, so they doused the house in diesel and set it alight. I cannot see how Ambassador Stevens would have survived because of the dense smoke inside the house. The U.S. agents had failed to locate him before they evacuated and moved to the annexe where there was a further shoot out. They stated that Agent Smith had died in the original compound due to smoke inhalation. They found him and took his body with them. They failed to locate the Ambassador because of the thick smoke. Their story continues as they move through Benghazi and reach the annex. What is missing is what then took place at the compound after the Americans departed.  This is a part of the untold story.

I am going to guess that members of the 17th February Brigade returned to the compound, and that they found Ambassador Stevens. I am going for now, to accept the story that they got him out of the building and that he was barely alive. I am going to guess, for now, that in fact the shouts of Allahu Akbar were as claimed a response to finding him, and a response to the information there was a pulse. Someone took Stevens to the hospital.  The fact that Stevens was missing for 5 hours needs to be placed in context because the security team had evacuated to the annexe in a separate location. They had not been able to find Ambassador Stevens because of the smoke – simple as that. They lost contact with him… but it was not until someone used his cellphone that he was found.

I have looked at that photo that has been on display, and I do not see the same thing as most have been interpreting it. First of all, there is one man who is holding Stevens, and it looks like he has been dragging or carrying him from somewhere (it is not all that clear), but what I see is that there is a cell-phone in his mouth. He is not taking photographs with that phone. His actions are not the actions of a man who is intending harm.  Again, I will remain open minded on this subject until further information comes to light. To my mind there is simply something missing in the telling of the tale. I have read nothing that indicates what some people have claimed and therefore I will continue to refrain from regurgitating what I consider to be rumor rather than fact.

With all of these facts, and even some of the conjecture, I do see that the White House has been playing the game of cover-up. They have changed their story because the notion that their had been a spontaneous protest has been proven false. The Libyan government was the first to denounce this story. It was an extremely foolish attempt at cover up and an attempt to bury the truth in the sand.

The handbag harpies in Australia


This afternoon the Australian Parliament resembled a scene from World War III. I am not joking about this subject because the Australian Parliament and the members of the ruling party in Australia – the ALP – are an absolute disgrace. What makes them totally disgraceful is the group that I am referring to as the handbag harpies, the fishwives and misandrists of Australia. All of them are Marxists and they are led by the biggest Marxist and harpy of them all, the Prime Minister Juliar Dullard. Ugh!!  I cannot stand that bitch of a woman!!

The issues here in Australia are quite complex. Peter Slipper who is nothing more than one of the most revolting grubs ever to have a seat in the Parliament was ousted from the Liberal Party (he resigned but they were going to oust him anyway). Upon his resignation, the Prime Minister sacked Harry Jenkins (who was forced to resign) as Speaker of the House, and had Peter Slipper elected in his place. She was playing politics, and her move gave her a buffer in the hung parliament. However, it seems that Peter Slipper is what I term AC/DC and he was hitting upon a man that he hired for homosexual sex. This I might add is a married man behaving in this fashion. He sent a series of texts to Mr. Ashby that were terrible. These text messages referred to female genitalia in a way that I find extremely disgusting. Mr. Ashby has taken Peter Slipper to court with his allegations of sexual harassment. He has been stood down as the Speaker but he still holds the role, and one of the harpies, a woman by the name of Anna Burke who is deputy Speaker is currently undertaking the role. The deputy Speaker is an absolute disgrace.

Robert McClelland, who is an ethical man (I really like this man because he has integrity) used to be the Attorney General until he was sacked by Juliar Dullard and his place she elevated the shrill, and inexperienced Nicola Roxon. James Ashby had also sued the Commonwealth over the sexual harassment because they did not provide a safe workplace. The Commonwealth decided to settle the claim for $50,000. Then Roxon did what is not in the slightest bit ethical by holding a press conference that was meant to sway the outcome of the case against Peter Slipper. On top of this Roxon attempted to use Julian Burnside QC as a friend to Peter Slipper on behalf of the Commonwealth (another move that is unethical) plus she allowed Peter Slipper to use the back entrance of the Court (another unethical move). It is really abhorrent that this harpy was elevated to the position of Attorney General. She is a female equivalent of Eric Holder.

At the same time as all of this was happening Juliar Dullard’s father passed away as a result of an illness. A radio commenter by the name of Alan Jones made private remarks that John Gillard had died of shame. Actually I doubt that was the case because John Gillard was also a Marxist, and he would have no shame, like all of the other Marxists. Well, that was the opening for the handbag harpies to sally forth and as a result there has been a cyber bullying campaign to force advertisers to pull out from his show. As a result of this campaign, I know that I will never ever drive a Mercedes Benz.  I am also disgusted that Woolworths forced someone to resign because he was in attendance at that private dinner and talk. The company should not have forced that particular resignation. So here we have Australia’s equivalent of Rush Limbaugh facing a Marxist campaign against him.

Now we get to the really meaty bit, because the slimebag handbag harpies, led by a grubby Scot by the name of McTernan, have been slandering the Leader of the Opposition, Tony Abbott, who had nothing to do with the Jones comment. The bitch who is our Prime Minister thinks that Tony Abbott is a misogynist because he stood beside a sign… oh my poor Juliar…. let’s go cry in a corner and throw a tantrum over nothing of importance. The bitch has been lying non-stop over Tony Abbott. She is obsessed with Tony Abbott because she knows that when she finally calls that election she will be history.

The handbag harpies are trashing Australia. We need an electin and we need it now. Enough is enough of this stuff. The Parliament has descended into a mud-wrestling match with the mud coming from one side only, and still missing its mark.

Juliar the Dullard must be forced out of office. She must go, and the sooner the better.

The world is in grave danger today thanks to Obama


Weak American Presidents usually end up causing massive harm around the world. The reason that President Ronald Reagan is so well loved is due to the fact that he stood up to the Russians, and he was not exactly patient with the Iranians. Jimmy Carter caused a crisis in Iran that continues to have ramifications in this world, culminating in Iran’s attempt to produce nuclear weapons. Considering the beliefs of Ahmahnutjob and the Supreme Pooh Bah relating to the 12th Imam, we should be very afraid if they ever succeed in manufacturing those weapons. They want to create Armageddon.

The Left-wing sycophants around the world were self-congratulating when Obama, the usurper, the empty suit, and the empty chair President was elected by an American population that got caught up in the idea that they must elect a black man to the Presidency. There is nothing wrong with that notion or idea, except if it is the wrong man. The Marxist going by the name of Obama, but should be known as the Indonesian citizen with the name Soebarkh is the wrong man. I just hope that he has not damaged for all time any opportunity by some other more appropriate black man to take on the Presidency in the future. The sycophants went too far when the nominated this nobody for a Nobel Peace Prize when he had done nothing to deserve such a prize, let alone a nomination.

The world situation over the past two years has been in gradual, and now accelerated deterioration. One of the world’s terrorist leaders, Moammar Ghadhafi is dead, and Libya has been freed from a tyrannical Marxist dictatorship, but at what price. Note: I am not talking about the Libyan leadership because so far they are holding up to their end of the bargain. There are other dangers, not associated with the leadership that is cause for concern. Those dangers actually exist outside of Libya, in the form of Iran.

Something that is constantly overlooked by people who bleat about NATO’s intervention in Libya is the role of Iran, which was an ally of Gadhafi. Iran, Russia and China backed Gadhafi in that monumental struggle. Perhaps this is the real reason that I was backing the Libyan rebel leadership. I agree that Obama was technically wrong in that Libyan situation because he should have consulted the Congress, and gotten their permission before using the military over Libya. It was wrong because of an Act of the Congress that required a sitting President to not declare or go to war without first consulting the people, via Congress. Obama circumvented the legal requirements as far as the USA was concerned, but not as far as the rest of the world is concerned. The participation of NATO forces was not illegal in the slightest.

From the time that NATO started bombing Gadhafi’s Air Force etc. the Russians and the Chinese began their criticism. They also used the Gadhafi regime talking points with claims of more people dead than what was the reality. The stories that I saw indicated that the regime were grabbing bodies from the hospitals to use them as “fodder” or proof that people were being killed by those air strikes. Many people were taken in by the propaganda, and it gave the leadership of the Arab League a little bit of heartburn (but at least they stayed with the action and did not retreat). The NATO forces were not led by America but by Canada, but the major roles were played by Great Britain and France. The USA did not do all that much, not even behind the scenes. Oh yes, they did loan some drones…. and I will get back to the issue of drones very soon.

Whilst Russia and China were vocal, it was Iran that was working behind the scenes, attempting to play a double game. At the same time Iran had sent its Quds forces to Syria where they were involved in a brutal crackdown of the population. Iran then played a double game by providing medicines to the rebel leadership, but they were supply guns and ammunition to Gadhafi.

I have written at length about the spheres of influence and have pointed out that China and Russia were really pissed when Gadhafi lost because they also lost out on a sphere of influence. However, Iran had remained largely silent on the matter. I do not think I saw anything about Iran’s reaction to the loss of Gadhafi, even though Gadhafi was their ally.

Iran continues to play the double game, and Iran continues to seek to strengthen its influence in the Middle East. If it cannot form a relationship such as the one between Iran and Syrian, then Iran will continue to work by stealth which is what it seems to be doing in Libya, Egypt, Mali and a host of other African and Middle Eastern countries. Yes, that is correct, the finger of Iran has been found in Libya, but not as you would think, with the leadership, it is with other shadowy figures.

The Libyan people have spoken and they do not want a Marxist government. At the same time they do not want the theocracy of the Mullahs. Even in Benghazi there are people who have openly stated that they do not want an authority telling them what they can wear in the streets. Yet Iran has gain some influence by stealth… if not amongst these people, then it is with those shadowy radical militias that have refused to disband.

This is the background as to why Obama continues to be a danger to world wide peace and stability. The stonewalling, the obsfucation, the lies, the cover-ups, the betrayal of intelligence information is now the norm in the White House. I find this situation to be absolutely disgraceful.

The fact remains that Obama has been totally negligent when it comes to intelligence issues. Prior to the start of the Libyan rebellion, the brother of Al Qaeda leader Zawahiri was released from prison, as was another former terrorist and Al Qaeda leader. Intelligence sources should have been tracking this pair and there should have been a stream of reports about their activities. Why did this not happen? If there were reports, why did Obama not heed the requests by Ambassador Stevens to beef up protection of the Benghazi consulate? There are many questions that require answers.

What has taken place is disgraceful. The fact that an American President has behaved so badly in these situations is really very bad.

I know that Americans do not like President Richard Nixon, but the fact is that when it came to foreign policy Richard Nixon was a very superior man. He made decisions that were very hard for him to make in regard to Vietnam. He also paved the way for the world to begin contact with the Chinese. He was received by Chairman Mao. This was a really great achievement by Nixon. Reagan’s actions led to the end of the Cold War…. but Obama’s actions have seen an escalation in those hosilities.

If Iran is working behind the scenes, then you can lay down money that Russia and China are involved behind the scenes. Nuclear weapons testing has been goin on in China, as well as in North Korea. They have all been helping Iran.

I nearly forgot to mention the rise of tensions in the Asian Pacific region. There is now open hostility between China and Japan, which is something that has not happened in a very long time. The Chinese have been ramping up their hostile actions against Japan. The person to blame for this situation is Barack Obama.

Benghazi


I was going to write a post about the debate, where Mitt Romney smacked Obama out of the ballpark, or in Australian parlance, Obama was hit for 6 (this has the same effect where a ball can end outside of the stadium!!). However, more revelation about the terrorist attack in Benghazi means that I am once again touching on this subject.

The White House Administration is engaged in a cover up. They learned nothing at all about what went wrong for President Richard Nixon, who was in my opinion a far superior man, and one who was capable of handling foreign affairs. The same cannot be said for Barack Obama. In the debate he claimed that the USA was safe because he is in the Oval Office. I am calling mushroom fodder on his claims. The world is not safe since he has been POTUS, and the USA is very vulnerable. The cover up involves the lie that a video of very poor quality was supposed to have blasphemed Mohammad the Pedophile. I continue to have my own theories about who paid for the poor quality documentary in the first place…. and it would not surprise me if I was to learn that Al Qaeda was in fact the backer of the tape. I suspect already that the Arabic subtitles that were added were deliberately done in such a way that more than a few rage boys got all upset.

From the start the Libyans have stated that there was no protest at the Benghazi consulate. They have totally debunked the story from the White House. This debunking has come from eye witnesses who were on the scene and were a part of the Libyan security team who were shot, wounded (and 10 of their number killed), during the attack. There are also Libyans who are part of a think tank in London who spoke up immediately stating that the attack sounded very much like it came from Al Qaeda, yet the White House would have us believe that there was a protest and what happened was spontaneous. It makes me think that something was in fact planned but not until October.

Information is slowly filtering out about the manner in which the White House and the Department of State flipped the bird at Chris Stevens, the U.S. Ambassador. Stevens had requested an increase in security, but the White House had refused the request. Even worse, is the latest news on the matter. MyPetJawa is reporting that the White House had cut the security in Benghazi as a response to the previous attacks over the past few months. Such news fills me with disgust. Chris Stevens and the men who were with him (on other business, and looking for weapons) had no chance because Obama refused to provide the consulate with the proper level of security.

There is a lot more in the way of information that in my view totally damages the credibility of Obama and the White House Administration. This information includes the fact that the White House did nothing about the Egyptian terrorist who was released from prison when Muburak was forced from power by Obama. It was the Egyptian who had sneaked into Libya, and who had set up training camps in the desert, to train those willing in the art of bomb making.

I maintain that the majority of Libyans are not into that kind of stuff, and this is supported by the response of normal Libyans who have gone out into the streets to demonstrate against the terrorists, who ousted the radical militias from their posts in Benghazi and Tripoli and in general have shown their support for Americans.

At the present time the Libyan government continues to rely upon a militia to provide security to the Americans. A small contingent of Americans did visit Benghazi today, and they were secured with the help of one of the government militias. I am willing to accept the sincerity of such people. That does not mean that I do not acknowledge the risks being taken in such a dangerous spot.

There has been some other encouraging news with the arrest of two Tunisians in Turkey on charges relating to the attack on the US Embassy. It is no surprise that Tunisians were involved in the attack. There are people in all of these countries who are simmering jihadis who are so mentally challenged that they are will to die for the sake of killing a few people from Western countries.

Yes, Obama was trounced in that debate last night. His body language told the story. He looks like a defeated man. We have not even scratched the surface when it comes to all of his misdeeds. America has the opportunity to fire Obama, and send him packing to Hawaii. This election is very important, not just to the USA but to the rest of the world. We want to reverse the harm that has already been done.
