“Obama famously promised to close the Guantanamo detention facility within a year of becoming president of the United States. But as he acknowledges, it’s still open with “approximately 166 detainees” nearly four full years after Obama was first sworn in as president.”
Update: Obama appointed Daniel Fried as “Special Envoy” in charge of an office that Obama created ostensibly for the purpose of closing the Guantanamo detention facility. But now, that office has been closed (while the Guantanamo detention facility remains open)– Daniel Fried has been “reassigned” and “will not be replaced.”
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton finally testified about the Obama Administration’s cover-up of the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya– and it was not a pretty sight:
There’s a good commentary from CainTV about Hillary Clinton’s meltdown on the witness stand: “Questioned by Ron Johnson over State Department inaction the night of the Benghazi attacks, Hillary Clinton had a bit of a meltdown during today’s testimony. Johnson asked why Hillary hadn’t done more to determine the validity of the administration’s infamous claim that the attacks sprung from a “spontaneous protest,” and pressed her on the fact that she was still repeating the lie days later. Hillary did her best to avoid the issue, and then started yelling. “The fact is; we had four dead Americans! Was it because of a protest? Or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?” What difference does it make? It’s the difference between a government that fabricates events to cover-up its failings and a government that presents the truth of unpleasant facts. It’s the difference between a State Department that lies with impunity and one which is beholden to the people it serves. It’s the difference between an out-of-control bureaucracy and a government of the people. It’s the difference between reality and fiction.”
Hillary Clinton also attempted to halt Congress’ probing questions about the cover-up by feigning tears (probably setting back the potential for a female U.S. President by 50 years):
The man identified by witnesses as a ringleader in the attack continues to walk the streets of Libya without fear of arrest. Ahmad Abu Khattala has admitted being at the consulate during the horrific attack but has yet to be questioned by any Libyan authorities. Abu Khattala spoke to a New York Times reporter Thursday from a hotel patio as he sipped a strawberry frappe and mocked the US and Libyan governments. “These reports say that no one knows where I am and that I am hiding,” he boasted. “But here I am in the open, sitting in a hotel with you. I’m even going to pick up my sister’s kids from school soon.”
Update: During Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s testimony on the Obama Administration’s cover-up of the Libya attack, Congressman Dana Rohrabacher “alluded to the fact that no one involved in the Benghazi terrorist attack has been arrested while the man who made the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” was arrested by California police for a parole violation. The administration originally said the video was the cause of the attack.”
After we learned that the Obama Administration lied to the American people about the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya and initiated a cover-up to help Obama win re-election, we’ve been informed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t be testifying about the incident since she’s vaguely ‘ill.’
Obama wrongfully took credit for killing Osama bin Laden and lied to the American people about his “gutsy call” and the bin Laden raid. Now, it’s been revealed that a senior Defense Department official in the Obama Administration leaked classified information to the filmmakers of “Zero Dark Thirty” (a film about the hunt for Osama bin Laden) in an effort to ensure Obama’s re-election.
Obama is lucky that Congress hasn’t passed legislation designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a “terrorist” organization (YET).
Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. § 2339A, it’s a felony (punishable by a fine and/or imprisonment) to provide material support or resources to “terrorists.” By every measure of reality, the Muslim Brotherhood qualifies as a “terrorist” organization— founded by Hasan al-Banna (a devout supporter of the Nazis), supporting jihadist terrorism against Western nations, facilitating the growth of Al Qaeda, opposing the killing of Osama bin Laden, serving as the “parent organization” of Hamas, and encouraging its members to engage in terrorist acts and form their own terrorist organizations. Even the FBI Chief testified that “elements of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist group whose ideology has inspired terrorists such as Osama bin Laden, are in the United States and have supported terrorism here and overseas.” Yet, Congress hasn’t managed to pass legislation officially designating the Muslim Brotherhood as a “terrorist organization.”
As a result, Obama is able to get away with sending “more than 20 F-16 fighter jets, as part of a $1 billion foreign aid package” to the Muslim Brotherhood-led Egyptian government— despite the fact that “Pharoah” Morsi has seized absolute power, sparking violence in Cairo and threatening the national security of both the U.S. and Israel. It’s incredible that Obama continues to embrace Morsi, despite the fact that Morsi openly prays for the destruction of the U.S. and Israel.
Despite the fact that Susan Rice (the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. under Obama) lied to the American people by stating that the Benghazi attack was a “spontaneous mob reaction” instead of a terror attack, Obama wants her to be the new Secretary of State. Furthermore, according to the White House Press Secretary, Obama “is not particularly concerned” about whether Susan Rice misled the American people— which makes sense, since the evidence shows it was the Obama Administration that altered the CIA’s talking points about the Benghazi attack to help Obama win re-election. Susan Rice was just doing her “job” in helping Obama lie to the American people by getting false talking points out to the media. Of course Obama isn’t “concerned”– he wants to reward her with a cabinet position!
1 week after Obama got re-elected, Israel was attacked by hundreds of rockets from Gaza. There is a report that at least one rocket was fired from Egypt into Israel– Egypt, which Obama helped turn from a relatively pro-U.S. regime that supported Israel’s efforts to defeat Palestinian terrorists into a Muslim Brotherhood radical Islamist regime that now attacks Israel in an act of war. The Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has even visited Gaza to condemn Israel for defending its borders from these terrorists’ rocket attacks.
We have learned that Iran now “has finished installing nearly 3,000 nuclear-fuel production machines at its underground military facility near the holy city of Qom, providing Tehran the capability to double its production of medium-enriched uranium in the coming months.” So this is the result of Obama’s “diplomacy” and “tough” economic sanctions on Iran: IRAN CONTINUES TO GET CLOSER TO ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS. And, how predictable: Palestinian terrorists are currently firing Iranian-made missiles into Israel. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons: you can bet that terrorists around the world will acquire them too.
This photo from Drudge Report says it all:
The only thing between total destruction and the Jewish people– an ancient, long-persecuted religion and culture (which has been the object of repeated attempts at genocide)– is modern military technology: the “Iron Dome,” a device that intercepts the terrorists’ missiles in mid-air.
November 6, 2012: Obama is re-elected.
November 14, 2012: More than 200 Palestinian rockets explode on Israeli territory, and “Israel moved closer to an all-out ground war with Hamas Thursday, as Israeli planes, tanks and gunboats pounded suspected militant positions in Gaza in retaliation for another day of Hamas rocket attacks that left at least three Israelis dead.”
Conclusion: Obama’s re-election has emboldened radical Islamic elements in the Middle East. And terrorists are continuing to propagandize Israel’s efforts to protect itself.
First, CIA Director David Petraeus resigned two days after Obama’s re-election over an “extramarital affair” with his biographer. Conveniently for Obama, Petraeus had been scheduled to testify in front of Congress next week about the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya– and now that Petraeus has resigned, he won’t be testifying. Now, it turns out that Petraeus had personally investigated the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya, and we won’t hear vital information that could have blown the lid off of the Obama Administration’s obvious cover-up of this national security failure. It’s also been revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is going to resign, so it’s doubtful we’ll hear anything about Benghazi from her either. All we have to go on are the words of the father of Petraeus’s “mistress,” who implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.
Update: The scandal gets worse for Obama– because Petraeus actually gave honest testimony to Congress on November 16th. He admitted that he “knew almost immediately after the September 11th attack, that the group Ansar al Sharia, the al Qaeda sympathizing group in Libya was responsible for the attacks” despite his prior Congressional testimony that the attack at the U.S. Consulate in Libya began as a spontaneous protest against an anti-Muslim youtube clip. Petraeus has now testified that the CIA’s talking points to the media and the American people were edited to downplay the terrorist connection. While intelligence officials say they don’t know who changed the CIA’s talking points, what’s clear is that Obama benefited from Petraeus’ false testimony in September 2012. During the 2012 presidential election, Obama continuously asserted that Al Qaeda was ‘on the run’ while his supporters chanted “bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.’ Because of Petraeus’ false testimony, Obama could claim that his reaction to the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya was justified based on the intelligence available at the time. Furthermore, Obama was able to deny the occurrence of another Islamic terrorist attack on U.S. soil for 2 weeks before Election Day. A mere two days after Obama got re-elected, Petraeus’ extra-marital affair was exposed and Petraeus was thrown under the bus by the Obama Administration.
