September 11th, 2012: Why We Must Never Forget Benghazi

Published

on

Today, we take time out of our busy dies to remember the thousands of lives lost in the September 11th, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City, Washinton DC, and Pennsylvania.

However, it is imperative that we also take a moment to remember the four lives lost eleven years later in Benghazi, Lybia, as a result of the corrupt foreign policy of Obama’s “scandal-free” administration.

Remaining every true to his incredible ego, Obama actually had the nerve to refer to “wild conspiracy theories” surrounding the Benghazi attacks, in which four Americans were killed defending an embassy that was kept deliberately insecure.

On the night of September 11, 2012, elements of al Qaeda launched a well-coordinated attack on the poorly defended U.S. consulate in war-torn Benghazi, Libya. The attack was the culmination of the Obama Administration’s disastrous foreign policy for the region, which could best be described as democracy promotion through thoughtless regime change.

Ambassador Christopher Stevens, State Department Information Service Officer Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Glen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods all paid with their lives for this naïve policy. As we approach the sixth anniversary of this gruesome event, the Trump Administration needs to consider a fundamental reassessment of US. policy in what Andrew J. Bacevich calls the “Greater Middle East.” Failure to do so will ensure that the United States is in for more Iraq-style conflicts and Benghazi-style assaults—to say nothing of another horror like the original September 11, 2001 attack.

They go on to explain the events leading up to the Benghazi attack, which we simply cannot divorce from what ultimately took place at the embassy there:

Inexplicably, after the toppling of Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 and the country’s subsequent collapse into anarchy, American policymakers believed they had won a major victory. With the Syrian Civil War brewing, Washington’s “Permanent Bipartisan Fusion Party” sought to replicate that “success.” So, a covert plot was hatched essentially to redistribute Gaddafi’s powerful (and unaccounted for) weapons from the hands of Libyan “rebels,” through Turkey, and into the waiting, blood-stained hands of purported Syrian “rebels” (read, jihadis).

Thus, a true regional expert, Ambassador Christopher Stevens, was dispatched to Libya. Once there, Stevens was supposed to use his contacts within the Libyan population to negotiate a hand-off of the massive stores of weapons to American-backed proxies. What few understood was how deeply penetrated by jihadi elements the Libyan rebel movement had already become. Stevens thought he was negotiating with friendly locals. Instead, he was being set up by al Qaeda.

Infuriatingly, Stevens became the unwitting victim of Obama and Clinton’s attempt to keep Stevens’ business in Lybia under the radar:

Following the harrowing events of the Benghazi consulate attack, many questioned how an American ambassador—the civilian equivalent of a four-star general—could have been allowed to enter into Benghazi with such a small security detachment, and to stay at the poorly defended consulate. The answer should now be apparent: the covert nature of the Stevens mission meant that he needed to maintain a low-profile.

Not only was an arms redistribution plot highly dangerous, but had the harebrained scheme been publicly revealed in the midst of the contentious 2012 presidential election, it might well have proven politically toxic for President Obama…

This covert action explains why no aid ultimately was rendered to the stricken ambassador and his gallant-though-outnumbered defenders—despite the fact that the White House knew of the pending attack at least an hour before it began. It also explains how the Obama team had a cover-story at the ready, in the form of the much-maligned anti-Muslim YouTube video maker, upon whom they erroneously placed the blame for having inspired the terrorist attack.

Obama and Clinton shamelessly lied to the American public and Stevens’ grieving family during his funeral as to the situation that caused to his death, all the while, they were just covering their own rears, ever-ready to double-down on their carefully prepared defense.

Unless things change, American Greatness concludes, we will be locked in a never-ending cycle of violence and corruption in our dealings with the Middle East:

Unless President Trump challenges the deep state’s basic assumptions about the Middle East, the Americans are likely to find ourselves mired in ongoing conflict there, which will only further damage our credibility in the region. That is why we should never forget what actually happened in Benghazi six years ago—while continuing to demand answers from the government. It’s time to abandon the elite’s whimsical fixation on “democracy promotion” through regime change. It is also time to rein in the excesses of America’s covert intelligence agencies—before it’s too late.

Biden Appears Caught In Lie About Being Arrested In South Africa On Way to Visit Mandela

The person he was with denies there was an arrest…

Joe Biden seems to remember things that other people don’t, often times because those things never happened. In other words, Joe, like many Democrats, lives in his own world where he has never done anything wrong. On Friday, the former vice president was apparently caught in a big lie about being arrested in the 1970s in South Africa on his way to go see Nelson Mandela. Just Joe being Joe! Does the 2020 presidential hopeful think people aren’t going to fact-check the stuff he says? It would sure seem that way. LOOK: https://twitter.com/katieglueck/status/1230953852309889024?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230953852309889024&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitchy.com%2Fgregp-3534%2F2020%2F02%2F21%2Fsiren-it-appears-joe-biden-has-been-lying-about-a-trip-he-took-to-south-africa-to-meet-mandela%2F From New York Times: Andrew Young, a former congressman and mayor of Atlanta who was the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations from 1977 to 1979, said that he had traveled with Mr. Biden over the years, including to South Africa. But Mr. Young said that he had never been arrested in South Africa and expressed skepticism that members of Congress would have faced arrest there. “No, I was never arrested and I don’t think he was, either,” Mr. Young, now 87, said in a telephone interview. REACTIONS: CNN’s John King called out Biden for blatantly lying about Super PACs. Joe has said he doesn’t like them, does’t want one. But now that his low-energy campaign is running short on cash, it appears his attitude might be changing. When even CNN is calling the Democrat “frontrunner” a liar, you just know there’s a problem. Also, it shows that CNN employees have probably been told to put Joe down while building up younger, hipper, cooler, more woke candidates. Just a guess. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=56&v=ZnZkkR93lsc It takes a special kind of person (or news outlet) to lie about something when everyone can clearly see the truth. “See” the truth.

Trump Admin to Sign Peace Treaty With Taliban, Would Bring An End to Longest U.S. War

Kind of a big deal…

If Hillary Clinton defeated Donald Trump in 2016, would the United States be lining up to sign a peace treaty with the Taliban? Would negotiations with North Korea ever have taken place? Would Iranian terrorist Qasem Soleimani still be alive, plotting attacks against hundreds, if not thousands, of innocent people? Thankfully, it’s a moot point. She lost. On Friday afternoon, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo made a major announcement about the Taliban in what could soon lead to the end of America’s longest war. From Politico: U.S. officials and the Taliban have reached an “understanding” that could result in a “reduction in violence” in Afghanistan, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday, paving the way for an agreement later this month that would bring to an end America’s longest war. […] In a more substantial statement released by the State Department, Pompeo offered further details regarding the “extensive talks” between the two parties, which he said are intended to “facilitate a political settlement to end the war in Afghanistan, reduce United States and Allied Forces presence, and ensure that no terrorist group ever uses Afghan soil to threaten the United States or our allies.” https://twitter.com/SecPompeo/status/1230807986857226245?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230807986857226245&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/nwadhams/status/1230810890854858752?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1230810890854858752&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fus-to-sign-peace-agreement-with-the-taliban-next-week%2F https://twitter.com/statedeptspox/status/1230808813105766400 During Trump’s visit to Afghanistan on Thanksgiving day 2019, the president of the country said some things that the liberal media won’t be so impressed with. Then again, when it comes to anything positive involving America, the MSM doesn’t really care. Such is life. Ashraf Ghani noted, “Hamza bin Laden was a big thing, but this is the biggest there is. This is the worst ever.” He added, “Osama bin Laden was very big, but Osama bin Laden became big with the World Trade Center. This is a man who built a whole, as he would like to call it, “a country,” a…
