From the very beginning of what we now call Benghazigate, Seraphic Secret brushed aside the narrative put forth by Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and all WH surrogates that an obscure You Tube video, The Innocence of Muslims, sparked “spontaneous protests” that “got out of hand.”
We maintained that Benghazi was a coordinated terrorist attack.
We also understood that Obama’s appeasement of Muslim terrorists is the foundation of his foreign policy and his reelection campaign — “Osama Bin Laden is dead and GM is alive.” Hence all non-optimal “bumps in the road” must be attributed to those Islamophobes who provoke otherwise peaceful terrorists into violence by exercising their First Amendment rights.
We now know that Obama knew from the very first hours that Benghazi was a well planned terrorist attack, having nothing to do with a little-seen video.
We now know that Obama lied to the American people and to the world, at the UN, about the Benghazi atrocity.
We now know that the slaughter of Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, and the heroic Navy SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who defended the compound, was viewed in real time, via drone, by the State Department and, for all we know, by Barack Hussein Obama and members of his staff.
“Within minutes of the first bullet being fired the White House knew these heroes would be slaughtered if immediate air support was denied,” said Ty Woods’s father, Charles. “In less than an hour, the perimeters could have been secured and American lives could have been saved. After seven hours fighting numerically superior forces, my son’s life was sacrificed because of the White House’s decision.”
We now know that Woods and Doherty repeatedly requested military aid. America has bases in Italy a little under two hours away. The battle went on for seven hours.
Question: Why didn’t Obama send help?
Answer: Sending help would have been tantamount to acknowledging that it was a terrorist attack.
And the jingle for Obama’s reelection campaign is that Osama bin Laden is dead, al-Qaida on the run, and the Arab Spring is flourishing. Much more convenient to blame some obscure video and jail the producerof the video.
Obama and his campaign staff, which includes most of the mainstream media, are now caught in desperate damage control. To comprehend the hypocrisy of the left and the mainstream media, who claim the right is “politicizing” the story, just imagine the how much righteous indignation we would be hearing from liberals if Benghazi had happened on President Bush’s watch.
Over at the Weekly Standard, William Kristol lays out Ten Questions for the White House.
1.) To whom did the president give the first of his “three very clear directives”—that is, “make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to?”
2.) How did he transmit this directive to the military and other agencies?
3.) During the time when Americans were under attack, did the president convene a formal or informal meeting of his national security council? Did the president go to the situation room?
4.) During this time, with which members of the national security team did the president speak directly?
5.) Did Obama speak by phone or teleconference with the combatant commanders who would have sent assistance to the men under attack?
6.) Did he speak with CIA director David Petraeus?
7.) Was the president made aware of the repeated requests for assistance from the men under attack? When and by whom?
8.) Did he issue any directives in response to these requests?
9.) Did the president refuse to authorize an armed drone strike on the attackers?
10.) Did the president refuse to authorize a AC-130 or MC-130 to enter Libyan airspace during the attack?
