Should Obama be Impeached?
More information about the Benghazi incident is coming out everyday. Of course, the source of the information isn’t the White House, which is continue to stonewall. It’s been obvious for weeks that the Administration is trying to run out the clock on the murder of four U.S. citizens, which includes an Ambassador, until after the election. If information concerning the incident continues to move towards its logical conclusion, however, the election may not matter.
We already know that our Ambassador was attacked by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya on September 11 of this year. We also know that the attack took place at a “safe house” where Ambassador Stevens was meeting with a diplomat from Turkey. We still don’t know why they were meeting, however. We also know that Stevens requested additional security from the State Dept. several times, and was ignored. Since the attack, the Administration has been regularly changing its story as to who knew what, and when. Things are starting to become clearer though, and the White House is beginning to look complicit in the murders.
Today we learned that the White House was receiving continuous emails concerning the attack, the first one coming only 20-30 minutes after the attack began. Also, the White House knew, as soon as two hours after the attack, that an Islamic terrist group, Ansar al-Sharia, was to blame. It should be noted that Ansar al-Sharia in Yemen is considered to be an affiliate of Al Qaeda; no word on whether Ansar al-Sharia in Libya is such an affiliate (although if it isn’t, it may want to come up with a new name). All of this information comes from emails leaked to Reuters. As everyone knows by now, the White House first called the attack a spontaneous outburst resulting from some Youtube video that nobody saw. This story continued while, at the very same time, the State Dept. reported it was a terrorist attack.
Now, one would think the alleged failure of Hillary Clinton to tell her boss, the President of the United States, that terrorists murdered a U.S. Ambassador would be an important issue to Americans. On the other hand, when one’s presidency has been filled with incompetency, the failure to effectively communicate with staff doesn’t necessarily amount to a “holy crap” moment. Either way, Libya does not seem to be impacting the President’s poll numbers much. Now that we have the emails, however, the “failure to communicate” theory has been replaced with an active cover-up.
Why cover it up? I believe it becomes obvious the longer this plays out. This is from the Reuters article linked above:
The first email, timed at 4:05 p.m. Washington time – or 10:05 p.m. Benghazi time, 20-30 minutes after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission allegedly began – carried the subject line ‘U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack’ and the notation ‘SBU’, meaning ‘Sensitive But Unclassified.’
Yes, you read that right: an email was sent advising the reader of the attack only 20-30 minutes after it started. Keep in mind, the attack last several hours. Who received the email?
While some information identifying recipients of this message was redacted from copies of the messages obtained by Reuters, a government source said that one of the addresses to which the message was sent was the White House Situation Room, the president’s secure command post.
Yep, it went to the White House. Where was the President? This was his “3:00 a.m. phone call,” and by all accounts, it seems like he hit the snooze.
And it gets worse. This isn’t just about the Prez lying to us about knowing it was a terrorist attack almost immediately. We had an unmanned drone flying over the attack as it was happening. In other words, we were watching it happen. If a drone can get there, why can’t our military?
The United States had an unmanned Predator drone over its consulate in Benghazi during the attack that slaughtered four Americans — which should have led to a quicker military response, it was revealed yesterday.
‘They stood, and they watched, and our people died,’ former CIA commander Gary Berntsen told CBS News.
Fighter jets and Specter AC-130 gunships — which could have been used to help disperse the bloodthirsty mob — were also stationed at three nearby bases, sources told the network.
So let’s review. Not only did the White House absolutely know about the attack, as it was going on, it did nothing to protect our people. This isn’t incompetence, or a failure to communicate. This was purposeful inaction on the part of our Commander in Chief. And not to sound like a conspiracy nut, but it sure looks like the White House was pretty okay with Ambassador Stevens being killed on September 11. Why? As we said earlier, we still don’t know why Ambassador Stevens was meeting with a Turkish delegate in a safe house in Benghazi; although we do know that heavy weapons are being shipped to Syrian rebels through Turkey. We also know that Stevens was instrumental in running guns to Libyan rebels during the whole “let’s overthrow the government” thing. We also know that some of the “rebels” who we were shipping guns to were members of Al Qaeda.
What does all of this look like to me (as well as others)? Stevens, and three other Americans were killed by a group of terrorists that America armed, and it all went down with the President looking on. Why did he do nothing? We still don’t know. But we will. The biggest mistake the President made in all of this was blaming the CIA for bad intel. Information will continue to leak out, and we’ll eventually have the full picture. You won’t be able to ask Barry about it though, because he’ll be on The View, talking about Big Bird.
