CIA Analysis on Benghazi

Posted by madjillmom on April 2, 2014

Why would the CIA have their analysts put forward a (false) reason for the attack in Benghazi without actually talking to those present in Libya and Benghazi?  I think we know why the CIA doesn’t seem to catch much out there in the world these days. It is all analysts and not much from the field. Field work would seem to be essential in figuring out the situation. Former Deputy Sec. Morell seemed to act as the brick wall between human intelligence and the analysts in the sub basement at Langley.  This still doesn’t explain Obama continuing the falsity up to two weeks later. That is on Obama. The lie served the campaign.

Sending Help to Syrian Rebels

Posted by madjillmom on June 14, 2013

Now that Obama has dithered for so long, announcement today that we are sending some equipment into Syria. Obama has finally decided that his red line has been crossed.

Why has Obama waited until 93,000 have been killed? Because of Libya. He waltzed into Libya, sent weapons to Libya, and got an American Ambassador and 3 others killed. Libya took too long and didn’t stay fixed.

So now, he has to do something. Now that Russia, Hezbollah, and Iran are backing up Asad. Great move, Pres. Obama. That is some real bravery.

While I note that is no good options in Syria, Obama has taken a bad thing and bungled it mightily.

More Lies from the Obama Administration

Posted by madjillmom on May 20, 2013

Dan Pfeiffer came on all the Sunday morning shows. To him, the law is irrelevant, the whereabouts of Pres. Obama during the 9/11 Benghazi attacks is really irrelevant, and the Republicans are all at fault. Credibility of the talking heads around Obama is way down, so we need to send out someone new. Pfeiffer wasn’t able to tell the truth, just like Susan Rice eight months ago.

Pfeiffer jumped on the claim that some nefarious Republican altered the memos the White House put out last week. The claim is that these memos were “put out” months ago and no one saw anything bad in them. These selected memos were not put out till last week. Staffers, Senators, and Congressmen were allowed to see the memos, but not have copies, several months ago. The access was very limited so some staffer or Congressman was only able to remember the memo. The alteration was minor, and the spirit of the original memo was preserved. If the White House actually made the memo available, this would not have happened.

The White House like to tell us that 25,000 pages have been put out. The MSM press should have been screaming bloody murder that the pages were not put out, but once again only made available for certain people, for a short period of time.

During one of these limited access times, someone said that Hillary Clinton signed one of the requests for extra security from Benghazi. Quickly they told us that it was not an actual signature and did not mean that she knew about the requests. Yet, the memo was not released, because it will make Hillary look bad.

Don’t just put out the 100 emails you think make you look good, put out the 25,000 you claim you have put out.

Kissing Hillary on Benghazi

Posted by madjillmom on January 23, 2013

These hearings are the usual farce with so much more ass-kissing thrown in. The Dems tell Hillary how much they love her, how great she is, how wonderful she looks, and could she just move her left cheek over a little so they can kiss her butt some more. The Republicans ask a few hard questions and don’t get real good answers. When they turn up the heat on Clinton, the press starts to impugn their credentials. So no one will ever get a thing to hang on Hillary and Obama will never be called to task.

American men are dead. Reputations of terrorists have been enhanced. Al Qaeda is stronger. Some of the same terrorists have possibly gone onto kill Americans in Algeria last week. No answers. What was Ambassador Stevens doing in Benghazi? Does Hillary know? What did Pres. Obama do when he learned of the attack? Why wasn’t the military allowed to go in?

Obama, Benghazi, and Susan Rice

Posted by madjillmom on November 14, 2012

Obama got his back up today in his press conference. He told everyone to lay off of Susan Rice and pick on him instead. He also said Susan Rice had “nothing to do with Benghazi”. If she had nothing to do with Benghazi, then why was she the one sent out to lie to us all about the reason for the attack? She does not need to be Sec. of State. Neither does John Kerry.

Patreaus Mess

Posted by madjillmom on November 9, 2012

I was shocked and disheartened this afternoon to hear that the General has stepped down because of an affair. It is a terrible thing. Men of Honor can be brought low by foolish choices.

Now, the MSM will dig and dig and dig until they can undo this man and his accomplishments. They will use it as a distraction rather than dig and dig and dig on the administration and their handling and lying about the whole situation. I bet that before he was supposed to testify next week, his reputation and privacy will be in ruins. Too bad, really sad.

Senior Officials Involved in Benghazi Terrorist Attack

Posted by madjillmom on November 2, 2012

The White House is now telling us that all the most senior officials were involved in the decision making and planning during the night Benghazi went down. No second stringers, all the top people. So why is it taking so long to find out what really went down?  Have they all lawyered up? Why isn’t there a real and full explanation of what went down? This doesn’t make me feel better.  It makes me even more certain there is something being covered up.

Geraldo Rivera Turns in His Press Card

Posted by madjillmom on October 28, 2012

I was watching O’Reilly friday night. Geraldo was in no way concerned that other so called journalists haven’t asked Obama the hard questions about Benghazi.  Geraldo somehow felt it was Romney’s job to get Obama to answer questions about it. He seems to think it is ok for Obama to not answer the questions because it is so close to the election. Geraldo give Obama a pass but not Romney. Wow.

People died. It probably could have been avoided in advance or even during the attack. The smoke screen of the video hasn’t been explained by anyone yet. There are heads rolling in the military without explanation. Obama hasn’t held a press conference on the matter. All journalists are running interference for Obama. The press is dead.

Why was Steven in Benghazi? Why was the facility not secure? Why wasn’t help sent? Who did Obama meet with and what was said? Why did Obama go to Vegas? Why are heads rolling in the military? Why can we get drones there but not actual fighter jets? Did the Seals actually kill 60 attackers? Why is the guy who probably headed the attack able to drink frappe in a nearby hotel and be interviewed by the NYT? Was Stevens on a special mission to retrieve gun given to the bad guys?

I hope at least one other head rolls on this thing. Obama’s.

When Obama is OFFENDED, Look Deeper

Posted by madjillmom on October 17, 2012

Last night, in the debate, we saw Obama get his back up about the probability that his administration considered the political downfall by misleading on the murder of the 4 Americans in Libya a terrorist attack. Obama firmly told us he is OFFENDED by the idea.

He has used this term before. It was when he was asked if the leakers of classified info in his administration were doing it to make him look good. Once again, his back was up and he is OFFENDED!  How dare you mere mortals question him about putting politics before the safety of the Nation.

I think both instances struck a nerve because he got so upset both times.  He isn’t upset about the leaks or the terrorist attack so much, but he is offended that someone would question him. In the ongoing poor explanations about Libya, the possibility of bad intelligence is at hand.  Any day now, it the pressure is kept on high, the intelligence community will join others under the Obama Bus. Perhaps we don’t have good intelligence because the Obama administration leaks about the cooperation of foreign nationals in our intelligence. Why give the Americans information about pending attacks when you may be outed by someone shilling for the campaign?

When No Drama Obama is OFFENDED by something  it is probably because they are being asked the right questions. The MSM should look into this, but they won’t.

Obama, American Idol, and Benghazi

Posted by madjillmom on October 15, 2012

Drudge tells us that Obama went on another softball interview on The YO Show. There he opined about escalating tensions with two of the judges.  He is once again leading from behind. He knows about this feud  but seems not in the least curious about his administration’s handling of the Benghazi murder of an ambassador and 3 other Americans. He knows that whoever watches or listens to the Yo Show, there may be votes in not taking sides. How pop culture must a President be?  Evidently, he must be very steeped in pop culture. This is the same guy who can’t tell hardball interviewer Letterman what the debt is. Thanks, Bill Clinton. Cool isn’t the best qualification for being President. When will this President actually do the real work of a President and get to the bottom of the problem of Benghazi?  Maybe after his next Daily Show appearance?
