WH Releases 100 Pages of emails and Notes Related to Benghazi

What took so long?

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013...d-to-benghazi/

The White House is releasing 100 pages of e-mails and notes related to the Obama administration's response to the attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya, last September.

The White House had until now declined
to make the documents public and had let congressional investigators review the documents without making copies.

The documents describe how the administration developed "talking points" to describe what the administration wanted to discuss publicly immediately after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

I can't wait to see who wins the argument over "who" changed the talking points.

Dangerous Times: Benghazi Revealed Collusion with Al Qaida

By James Lewis
American Thinker
June 1, 2013

All scandals have layers of meaning. Watergate was about a second-rate burglary, but more importantly, it was about Richard M. Nixon's abuse of presidential power.

However, much of that message was ruined by the fact that Lyndon B. Johnson abused power as much as Nixon did. Because Nixon is still a convenient whipping boy for the left, we never hear about LBJ's sins.

Twenty years before Watergate, Nixon was engaged in a brutal battle with the Stalinist left of the 1950s. Watergate "gave the left a sword," as Nixon famously said. The Washington Post assaulted the Nixon presidency in collusion with Mark Felt (Deep Throat), who hated Nixon for passing him up for FBI director.

Watergate was therefore a major battle in the long war between the radical left and mainstream America.

Like Watergate, Benghazi has several layers. But the most revealing one is the active collusion between this administration and Al Qaida.

Al Qaida is a Saudi-inspired and Saudi-funded terror gang. Almost all of the terrorists on 9/11 were Saudis. Those facts are always covered up, but they are crucial to understanding the Jihad War.

In Benghazi we ran arms from Libya to Al Qaida rebels in Syria. The Saudis are funding that rebellion.

There's that Saudi link again.

In Egypt we backed the Muslim Brotherhood against Hosni Mubarak, who kept the peace treaty with Israel for 30 years. Thirty years of peace in the Middle East is a huge achievement. The Muslim Brotherhood assassinated Anwar Sadat the peacemaker, one of the rare Arab moderates who saw the light. Today we are in league with those who assassinated Anwar Sadat. For shame.

Today Egypt is starving, and the people hate the new regime.

The Saudis are naturally on the side of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood because they share the Sunni war theology.

So the Saudis have won again, with Obama acting as their American errand boy.

In Libya, we again made common cause with Sunni radicals against Muammar Gadaffi, a real nutcase, but a man who was able to run Libya's tribal federation for years. Gadaffi had turned over his nuclear program to the George W. Bush Administration. We still betrayed him to support his enemies, and Libya is in a civil war even now.

Again, the Muslim radicals won.

The bottom line is that Obama has consistently supported the most radical Muslim elements in the Middle East.

But we never supported the young people of the democratic Green Revolution against the vicious mullah regime in Iran. When Obama first met Benyamin Netanyahu he acted like an abusive bully.

Obama only bows down to Third World reactionaries.

That is consistent with his extreme leftist ideology. It also fits the worldwide left-Muslim alliance that has made Israel and the U.S. the targets of the most vicious hate campaign since World War II. Check MEMRI.org if you doubt it.

Obama may not be committing technical treason.

But he is a revolutionary, and so are all his friends.

For people like him, the enemy of my enemy is my friend. The war theology of Islam is therefore his friend.

The biggest danger revealed by Benghazi is Obama's ruthlessly radical policies and actions. He is a trickster. Everything he does aims to undermine the legitimacy of our institutions: DOJ, IRS, FBI, EPA, the Education Department and the rest. As long as Obama is president those agencies cannot be trusted.

Therefore the most dangerous meaning of Benghazi is its betrayal of our fundamental values and allegiances.

By now we should know who Obama really is. It is hard to face, because we want our presidents to represent American values. Obama does not believe in those values.

The most important fact Benghazi revealed is Obama's collusion with Al Qaida.

That is why it had to be covered up.

Unfortunately you are 100% correct. I have always said, Obama is THE ultimate terrorist. He will destroy the USA from within and most Americans will never see it coming. The USA values, principles and everything we have fought for is in grave danger.

Not just Obama, but the people who put him in his position, and the people who enable him. Pelosi, Reid, Kerry and the many others like them are just as culpable. Granted, Obama appointed Brennan, Holder, Hagel and Hillary (and now Kerry), but the senate confirmed them. It's a shared responsibility.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”
~Marcus Tullius Cicero~
