Hezbollah threatens Galilee if war comes

by Michael Carl 

The next conflict involving Israel will not be another skirmish, according to a terrorism analyst for the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv.
“They [have] been saying that in the next war, the stakes will be much higher,” says Benedetta Berti. “It will be a decisive war.”
That the stakes are high was affirmed by a statement from Hezbollah on an English-language website that in the case of war, the Galilee region of Israel will be targeted.
Hezbollah has its sights on Galilee because military strategists say it is a key location between the Golan Heights to the east and Lebanon to the north and west.
Berti adds that the rhetoric has become more intense since the 2006 war.

“After 2006 they’ve been talking a lot about the escalation of the next conflict. [Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan] Nasrallah said to me that in the last war, there were limited rockets in the north. In the next war they’ll be aiming for all of Israel.
“He’s giving the idea of rockets in the Golan and trying to create the idea of strategic parity,” Berti said. “Talk of the Galilee in this context, trying to say Hezbollah is much more powerful, and they’re trying to say they can inflict a much greater blow in the next round.”
Middle East Forum Executive Director Daniel Pipes says he believes Hezbollah’s claim is more than an empty threat.
“Hezbollah attacked the Galilee in 2006 and did considerable damage. There is every reason to think that its capabilities have increased since then,” Pipes said. But he said he doesn’t know of any grand strategy.

“If there is a master plan, I would not know it. But this is definitely not hot air; Hezbollah has tens of thousands of rockets and missiles at its disposal,” Pipes said.
The Hezbollah site includes confirmation from Nasrallah of the status.
“It is the second time Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah sets Galilee as an inevitable target for the Resistance’s field operations in case ‘Israel’ attacks Lebanon,” the web page statement said.
Later in his statement he said, “According to the scenario of the likely confrontation, whoever takes over Galilee is automatically able to take over South Lebanon and plains surrounding Tabaria (Tiberias) Lake, and vice-versa; liberating any part of Galilee via the Lebanese territories shall petrify ‘Israel’ since most of its settlements are built nearby the Lebanese borders,” the web page said.
However, Berti says there’s a possibility that the web post is psychological warfare against Israel.
“I think it’s important in this case to separate between psychological warfare, which is something both Israel and Hezbollah have been doing since 2006, and reality,” Berti said. “What I mean by that is that I’m skeptical that Hezbollah can take over the Galilee, given the balance of power and the Israeli’s stronger military.
“I think they’re saying that in the context of propaganda and psychological warfare.”
She says actual military capability and “psy-ops” have to be considered.

“What they can do and have been doing is smaller scale incursions. That’s something that Hezbollah fighters have been training to do since 2006. That’s much more realistic – Hezbollah fighters crossing the border and carrying out a smaller operation,” Berti said.
Berti says another factor that determines Hezbollah’s capacity to carry out the Galilee threat is the Iranian-backed group’s involvement in Syria. However, Berti says that in her analysis, the group doesn’t have the logistical means to capture and occupy a large area of territory like the Galilee.
However, Israeli daily Yedioth Ahronoth senior military analyst Ronen Bergman disputes those who doubt Hezbollah’s strength.
Bergman writes in an article for Bloomberg News that Hezbollah has more military power than many of the world’s countries.
“Ever since it forced the Israelis’ panicky retreat from Lebanon in 2000, Hezbollah has been building up an immense military force, with firepower that 90 percent of the world’s countries don’t possess, according to Meir Dagan, the former director of the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency,” Bergman wrote.
Although Berti says she doesn’t believe Hezbollah has the manpower to capture and occupy territory, Bergman said in his article that Hezbollah may have a much wider objective in their sights.
“Hezbollah’s launching of a pilotless spy plane, which was shot down by Israel’s air force in the southern part of the country in early October, has been seen as more evidence that the Lebanese militia is preparing for war,” Bergman wrote.

“No doubt it was collecting information in case of another confrontation with Israel, but whether the terrorist group is seeking a full-blown war is a more complicated question that may depend less on what Hezbollah wants than on the heat it is getting from its patrons,” Bergman wrote.
Bergman adds that whether they have the force numbers to occupy territory, Hezbollah is nonetheless a well-armed force.
“The group’s possession of so sophisticated a craft (which was assembled from Iranian-made parts) is further evidence that Hezbollah is the most advanced and best-equipped militia of its kind the world has ever seen,” Bergman wrote.

Bombshell: Benghazi Targets Painted, Air Support Overhead – Obama Calls Off Strike


In piecing together the details of the Benghazi attack up the U.S. consulate, it is becoming clear that there were U.S. Special Operations forces on the ground, at least two drones overhead and lasers being used to paint at least one target. The question then becomes, if these things were in place for a strike against attackers, who called it off? There can only be one answer, the commander-in-chief Barack Obama.

Fox News reports on the laser being used to paint the target:
At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Spectre gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights.
This went on for four hours and the White House was able to watch this all take place live. Two drones were above recording what was taking place and it seems one was called in to relieve the other, presumably because of fuel issues. A former Delta operator over at BlackFive writes:

Having spent a good bit of time nursing a GLD (ground Laser Designator) in several garden spots around the world, something from the report jumped out at me.
One of the former SEALs was actively painting the target. That means that Specter WAS ON STATION! Probably an AC130U. A ground laser designator is not a briefing pointer laser. You do not “paint” a target until the weapons system/designator is synched;

which means that the AC130 was on station. Only two places could have called off the attack at that point; the WH situation command (based on POTUS direction) or AFRICOM commander based on information directly from the target area.
If the AC130 never left Sigonella (as Penetta says) that means that the Predator that was filming the whole thing was armed.
If that SEAL was actively “painting” a target; something was on station to engage! And the decision to stand down goes directly to POTUS!

There is also the issue of the former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods and a small team that ignored orders to stand down after they requested permission to go and help.
Former Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods was part of a small team who was at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When he and others heard the shots fired, they informed their higher-ups at the annex to tell them what they were hearing and requested permission to go to the consulate and help out. They were told to “stand down,” according to sources familiar with the exchange. Soon after, they were again told to “stand down.”
Woods and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The rescue team from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

CIA spokeswoman Jennifer Youngblood denied claims that requests for support were turned down.
“We can say with confidence that the Agency reacted quickly to aid our colleagues during that terrible evening in Benghazi,” she said. “Moreover, no one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. In fact, it is important to remember how many lives were saved by courageous Americans who put their own safety at risk that night-and that some of those selfless Americans gave their lives in the effort to rescue their comrades.”

I can’t help but think that this sounds, at least with the information that we are getting, like much of the response to the attacks of September 11, which was no response. Even more disturbing is what BlackFive writes, ““This is bigger than Watergate!… The worst has to be the team on the ground knowing that the President just left you to die.“
All of this was responded to by Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Thursday. He said, “The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over.”
Just how much information did you need? The White House had emails. They had forces on the ground, drones overhead, a live feed, painted targets. For four hours nothing was done while the consulate was attacked. There was a Special Operations team operating in Central Europe that could have been called upon, but weren’t, and could have flown there in less than two hours. But none of this was done.

It is looking more and more as though this was not only a planned attack, but also that either the White House was either negligent and irresponsible in their “non-response” or complicit.

Military Officer With Inside Info Puts Blame On Obama For Denying Benghazi Rescue, ‘Stand Down’ Orders 

This is from a call into the Rush Limbaugh show today…Barack Obama: Guilty of Negligent Homicide.
RUSH: Now to the phones since it’s Open Line Friday. Doug in San Antonio. Great to have you on the program, sir. Hello.
CALLER: Hi, Rush. Thanks. I wanted to speak to the question of when the president knew and why Secretary Panetta refused to support the CIA annex request either to move to the consulate or to reinforce. Within a few minutes of the consulate being under attack — I’m a retired lieutenant colonel special operations planner for 15 years — the personal security detail for the ambassador notified the communications room in Tripoli who then, on the top secret side, sent a message to the White House Situation Room that the ambassador was in peril, okay? And they did that by code word and it would have been within minutes of the attack commencing.

The White House Situation Room has a list of what’s called Essential Elements of Friendly Information. That’s the military’s acronym for it, but they would have a similar thing, a critical information list. Certain things go right to the person that’s standing next to the president, both military and civilian leadership. So he would have known within minutes or it’s supposed to be informed within minutes because an ambassador is a four-star equivalent, very high, very important person, you know, represents the president and essentially is the president’s — you know, is the surrogate of the president in that country. So the White House cannot deny that the president knew immediately.
RUSH: They are. They are.
CALLER: Well, it’s a bald-faced lie, you know. I’m giving you some inside baseball information –
RUSH: Look, I believe you. You’re talking about watch desks. That tells me you know what you’re talking about.
CALLER: Well, it’s even a little more frustrating than that. So when that message, that code word goes out, flash traffic, that an ambassador is in peril, okay, the –

RUSH: We have heard this. In our parlance, the way we heard this, Doug, was essentially the panic button was hit. That’s how this was explained to me the first time. Somebody who knew what they were talking about referenced this as a panic button essentially was hit, and that once that happens, everybody that receives it knows what’s going on. There’s no doubt about it. So that’s pretty much true, right?
CALLER: Right. But it’s even more detailed than that, Rush. What it means is when a code word goes out, there’s standard operating procedures. The geographic combatant commander that’s responsible for Libya would have been part of that message traffic, and his CINC’s In-Extremis Force, which is, you know, a Special Forces unit –
RUSH: Okay, let me stop you there for another question, because what a lot of people have been told, the excuse that has been offered, in fact, from Condoleezza Rice on Greta Van Susteren a couple nights ago, the impression is, “Well, there’s so much traffic coming in, there’s so many e-mails, so many cables, so many memos, it would take somebody hours to sift through it.” What you’re telling me is that there are systems designed to penetrate all that in a real emergency?

CALLER: Well, there’s three networks, Rush. The e-mails that have been released are unclassified e-mails. On the top secret side, a flash traffic message from the embassy Tripoli to the White House Situation Room, it’s like an IM. I mean, it’s immediately responded to. You have to acknowledge receipt of it. Okay? So it’s immediate. It gets to the person, the watch officer sitting there, boom, flashes on his screen, he has to acknowledge receipt. And then there’s a protocol for who he then sends it to. He physically turns to someone, the senior guy on watch, “This is a critical element of information. POTUS needs to hear this,” and that’s what would have happened. 

So no one in the White House can deny that — well, they can deny it, but the fact is the protocol says someone marched their happy little ass up to the senior guy standing next to POTUS and said, “Sir, ambassador in Libya is in peril.” And if he was missing, that is even a higher precedence. And then the chain would have also gone out automatically to the geographic combatant commander, AFRICOM, and he would have then turned to his special operations commander and said, “I want the In-Extremis Force, you know, strip ready in five minutes.” And evidently they were strip ready in Sigonella and they would have the assets to penetrate the airspace, you know, an MC-130 papa, which is a C-130 specially equipped with electronic countermeasures. They didn’t need permission to enter Libyan airspace, okay? 

I’m giving you a lot of Inside Baseball stuff, and maybe putting myself in a little peril by doing it, but the In-Extremis Force, they would have been chomping at the bit to do this. It was turned down, POTUS, at his five p.m. Eastern time meeting with the principals, that’s when he put the kibosh on everything. It was a conscious act. It has to be because, you know, the In-Extremis Force is required to be prepared to do In-Extremis non-combatant evacuation operations for its geographic responsibility, the entire continent of Africa. So there’s always somebody ready to go, and the aircraft are always prepared to go.
It’s maddening to say that there was not intelligence. An intelligence guy is not a decision-maker. He’s just some analyst dude that tells the decision-makers this is what we know. Well, the decision-makers who are so risk-averse now need perfect intelligence. They would have had to have, you know, in the calculus of this, to know that, whatever the attacking force was, if I put 15 or 50 or a hundred operators on the ground, you know, they’ll have success. No one knows that. In soft planning, you plan to fail half the time.

Interesting Rumor Concerning General Carter Ham and Stand Down Order

Interesting Indeed...Kudos to General Ham...he took a bullet for the team...I see many more Generals in the future standing up to Obamas 'Traitorisms' cue:


Interesting Rumor Concerning General Carter Ham and Stand Down Order

I heard a story today from someone inside the military that I trust entirely. The story was in reference to General Ham that Panetta referenced in the quote below.


"(The) basic principle is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on; without having some real-time information about what's taking place," Panetta told Pentagon reporters. "And as a result of not having that kind of information, the commander who was on the ground in that area, Gen. Ham, Gen. Dempsey and I felt very strongly that we could not put forces at risk in that situation."

The information I heard today was that General Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready. 

General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.

The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Ham's place as the head of Africon.

I found this story when I got home after hearing this story.


President Barack Obama will nominate Army Gen. David Rodriguez to succeed Gen. Carter Ham as commander of U.S. Africa Command and Marine Lt. Gen. John Paxton to succeed Gen. Joseph Dunford as assistant commandant of the Marine Corps, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta announced Thursday.

General Rodigues Nominated as Head of Africon 

As I was typing this I heard John Bolton on Greta say that there are conflicting reports of General Ham's comments on this tragedy and why a rapid response unit was not deployed. Bolton says someone needs to find out what Ham was saying on 9/11/12.

Interesting to say the least.  


Obama to nominate Army Gen. Rodriguez to lead AFRICOM  


Romney's 3rd and best option on Iran

by Tom Tancredo 

AGAINST AHMADINEJAD 2012 / People's Mojahedin of Iran (PMOI / MEK ...

... to war against Iran? will MEK join them to defend Iranian people too

Nowhere is the failure of Obama’s Middle East foreign policy more evident – and more catastrophic – than in Iran. Thanks to four years of self-delusion and appeasement, Iran is only weeks or a few months away from having a nuclear weapons capability.
On Jan. 20, a newly inaugurated President Romney can launch a new initiative that can halt Iran’s nuclear-weapons program without resorting to war. He can actively support the dissident movement inside Iran and call for the replacement of mullahs in the scheduled 2013 national elections.

A key element of that new strategy should be to provide official, open support and assistance to the exile group of dissidents, People’s Mujahedeen Organization of Iran (PMOI, also known as the MEK).
From 1997 to September of this year, that organization was on the State Department’s official list of terrorist organizations and thus denied both diplomatic status and the ability to raise funds and solicit support in the West. The European Union took the MEK off their list of terrorist groups years ago, but Obama’s State Department only did so under federal court order when they could not provide any evidence to support keeping the organization on that list.
Today, the MEK/PMOI is free to solicit Western support and openly challenge the tyrannical regime in Tehran. The stars are in alignment for a successful grass-roots movement to overthrow the radical Islamist regime in Iran – if the Romney administration will openly embrace and support that movement.
There is widespread support for the MEK/PMOI across Europe. Today, Oct. 26, the European Parliament awarded two Iranian dissidents the prestigious Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought. They won out over freedom fighters in Russia and elsewhere. This illustrates how out-of-step the Obama administration has been and how great the opportunity for isolating the Iranian regime.

Everyone remembers Obama’s incomprehensible silence in the summer of 2009 when hundreds of thousands of Iranian citizens took to the streets to protest a stolen election. They begged for some show of support from the United States – not military intervention, just public support for their cause. Obama remained silent. Hundreds were killed by the Ahmadinejad regime’s thugs, and thousands were imprisoned and tortured.

The whole world knows that Obama’s “friendly persuasion” combined with too-little-and-too-late economic sanctions have not worked to persuade Tehran to halt its nuclear-weapons program. The second option of overt military action against Iran’s nuclear facilities has obvious drawbacks, and at best would only delay the acquisition of nuclear weapons, not prevent it.
The third option of helping the democratic forces in Iran overthrown the mullahs’ dictatorship has always been the best hope for altering the path of history. The jihadists in Tehran must be dethroned if the world is to avoid the nuclear Armageddon certain to follow if the government of Iran begins providing nuclear weapons to its terrorist allies around the world.
The nuclear clock is ticking. The world awaits United States leadership. In January, President Romney can signal a new direction in our Middle East policies and a new determination to remove this jihadist cancer before it metastasizes further. In fact, a few well-chosen words from President-elect Romney on Nov. 7 would likely energize the Iranian democratic forces and their Western allies enough to persuade the Israelis to put their own military plans on hold.
The world will pay a horrendous prize for Obama’s misguided foreign policies if Iran is not prevented from building nuclear weapons. Fortunately, Mitt Romney has an opening and an opportunity for leadership that can avoid that catastrophe. We should pray the American people give him that opportunity on Nov. 6.

Election Alert: Hollywood uses Spc Ops to get Obama re-elected

Dishonorable Disclosure

We've got a major problem....

In just a few days, National Geographic Channel will begin broadcasting "Seal Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden," even after reporting by the New York Times and other media outlets disclosed that the timing and editing of the film by Obama mega-donor and Hollywood liberal Harvey Weinstein were orchestrated to use the heroic work of U.S. Special Operations Forces to promote President Obama's re-election.  OPSEC's not going take this sitting down.

If we can raise the funds necessary -- we're going to air our hard-hitting ad, "Bump In The Road," right along-side the documentary on National Geographic Channel. Every person who watches will know how this documentary is exploiting service members, divulging national secrets that are putting special forces lives at risk, and is timed to be nothing more than an ad for President Obama.

Please make an urgent donation of $25, $50, $100 or more right now to help OPSEC send a powerful message to Obama, Hollywood liberal Harvey Weinstein, and anyone else who wants to exploit the hard work of America's Special Forces that they will have to score political points elsewhere!

It's truly sad that once again, Special Forces operations are being used as a political pawn to win votes for Obama's reelection....not to mention the further leaks of tactics and methods that will further jeopardize future missions against Al Qaeda. National Geographic's Channel own President even admitted that, "that some people were suspicious of the film's intentions."


Our ad hits the Obama Administration hard for lying about the attacks in Libya that cost the U.S. Ambassador, two former SEALs and another U.S. diplomat their lives while also having politicized the raid that killed Osama bin Laden.

So will you make an urgent donation to help us run this ad side-by-side with Harvey Weinstein's exploitive Seal Team Six documentary? It's absolutely critical we raise the funds necessary to get our response running right along side this TV program.

Playing politics with national security is wrong and endangers American lives. It will only result in special forces coming home in flag draped coffins because their missions have been reduced to petty political games in place of protecting America.

Former Navy SEAL

PS: If we can raise the funds necessary -- we're going to air our hard-hitting ad, "Bump In The Road," right along-side the documentary on National Geographic Channel. Please make an urgent donation of $25, $50, $100 or more right now to help OPSEC send a powerful message to Obama, Hollywood liberal Harvey Weinstein, and anyone else who wants to exploit the hard work of America's Special Forces that they will have to score political points elsewhere!

Absentee Ballots Sent to Military 'Burned in Crash'

(AP) Absentee ballots may have been destroyed in crash
Federal officials say that absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military serving in Afghanistan may have been burned in a plane crash.

A top official in the Federal Voting Assistance Program this week notified election officials across the nation that a transport plane crashed at Shindad Air Base on Oct. 19.

The crash resulted in the destruction of 4,700 pounds of mail inbound to troops serving in the area.

Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail was limited to one zip code.

But they recommended that election officials resend a new ballot to anyone who requested one since the first ballot may have been destroyed in the crash and fire.


Petraeus on Benghazi: It Wasn't Me

Central Intelligence Agency director David Petraeus has emphatically denied that he or anyone else at the CIA refused assistance to the former Navy SEALs who requested it three times as terrorists attacked the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on the night of Sep. 11. The Weekly Standard and ABC News report that Petraeus's denial effectively implicates President Barack Obama, since a refusal to assist "would have been a presidential decision."

Earlier today, Denver local reporter Kyle Clarke of KUSA-TV did what the national media largely refuses to do, asking Obama directly whether the Americans in Benghazi were denied requests for aid. Obama dodged the question, but implied that he had known about the attacks as they were "happening."
Emails released earlier this week indicated that the White House had been informed almost immediately that a terror group had taken responsibility for the attack in Benghazi, and Fox News reported this morning that the two former Navy SEALs, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty, had been refused in requests for assistance they had made from the CIA annex.
Jake Tapper quoted Petraeus this afternoon denying that the CIA was responsible for the refusal: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate."
As William Kristol of the Weekly Standard notes, that leaves only President Obama himself to blame:

So who in the government did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? Someone decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?
Earlier today, Charles Woods, father of Ty Woods, called the White House's explanations for events in Benghazi a "pack of lies" and implied that those in the administration who could have helped, but refused, were guilty of "murder." He added:
My son violated his orders in order to protect the lives of at least 30 people. He risked his life to be a hero. I wish that the leadership in the White House had the same moral courage that my son displayed with his life.
Also today, the State Department shut down questions from reporters about Libya at a press briefing in Washington. The administration, as a whole, seems to have decided to say nothing further about Benghazi until after election--except for Petraeus, who was directly implicated by charges that the CIA failed to help, and who was thereby compelled to provide a response that points, inexorably, to the man in the Oval Office.

SEAL Father: Obama, Biden, Clinton showed no remorse

Charles Woods, father of murdered Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, reveals the details of meeting with President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Report: Hillary Asked For More Security in Benghazi, Obama Said No

OpEd: Jack
If this is true Hillary should resign her post immediately...turn states witness against Barack Obama in a congressional #Impeachment Hearing...this is murder and  borders on Treason !

Clinton asked for more security in Benghazi, Obama said no

Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.
The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.
Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

Klein explained that everyone knew what was happening in Benghazi from the CIA to the National Security Agency and that there’s intelligence cables that have not been released.
Wilkow asked, “If everybody knew this including the White House, who would have given the order to go in and save the ambassador?”
Klein, “The President…he should have given the order to use the rapid reaction force…”
Wilkow, “Not Petraeus?”
Klein, “Well it has to come from the president.”
Wilkow also asked Klein about Valerie Jarrett who’s the Senior Advisor to Obama and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, and her role in this cover-up.
Klein said, “We don’t know but we can only assume that every action that the president takes, and he said so, he is on the record saying “I don’t take any actions without passing it by Valerie Jarrett”... so we have to assume that Valerie Jarrett whose also by the way, hooked into the Chicago campaign line…she has a direct line to David Axlerod, was a part of this whole cover-up in the White House.”
This latest news comes on the heels when the Paulding County Republican Examiner reported that former CIA officer, Clare Lopez was a guest on the Glenn Beck TV on Monday evening and told Beck, “They let our ambassador and others die. In real time, watching it happen, and they didn't do anything about it.”

CIA operators were denied request for help during Benghazi attack

OpEd: Jack
This is totally unacceptable...heads need to roll NOW! The mishandling of this attack borders on accessory after the fact and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the Law...The whole Obama administration is made up of incompetent useless Bufoons....I for the life of me cannot understand why anyone of sane mind would support Obama...much less vote for more of the same !

Fox News has learned from sources who were on the ground in Benghazi that three urgent requests from the CIA annex for military back-up during the attack on the U.S. Consulate and subsequent attack nearly seven hours later were denied by officials in the CIA chain of command -- who also told the CIA operators to "stand down" rather than help the ambassador's team when shots were heard at approximately 9:40 p.m. in Benghazi on Sept. 11.
Former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty were part of a small team who were at the CIA annex about a mile from the U.S. Consulate where Ambassador Chris Stevens and his team came under attack. When they heard the shots fired, they radioed to inform their higher-ups to tell them what they were hearing. They were told to "stand down," according to sources familiar with the exchange. An hour later, they called again to headquarters and were again told to "stand down."
Woods, Doherty and at least two others ignored those orders and made their way to the Consulate which at that point was on fire. Shots were exchanged. The quick reaction force from the CIA annex evacuated those who remained at the Consulate and Sean Smith, who had been killed in the initial attack. They could not find the ambassador and returned to the CIA annex at about midnight.

At that point, they called again for military support and help because they were taking fire at the CIA safe house, or annex. The request was denied. There were no communications problems at the annex, according those present at the compound. The team was in constant radio contact with their headquarters. In fact, at least one member of the team was on the roof of the annex manning a heavy machine gun when mortars were fired at the CIA compound. The security officer had a laser on the target that was firing and repeatedly requested back-up support from a Specter gunship, which is commonly used by U.S. Special Operations forces to provide support to Special Operations teams on the ground involved in intense firefights. The fighting at the CIA annex went on for more than four hours -- enough time for any planes based in Sigonella Air base, just 480 miles away, to arrive. Fox News has also learned that two separate Tier One Special operations forces were told to wait, among them Delta Force operators.
A Special Operations team, or CIF which stands for Commanders in Extremis Force, operating in Central Europe had been moved to Sigonella, Italy, but they too were told to stand down. A second force that specializes in counterterrorism rescues was on hand at Sigonella, according to senior military and intelligence sources. According to those sources, they could have flown to Benghazi in less than two hours. They were the same distance to Benghazi as those that were sent from Tripoli. Specter gunships are commonly used by the Special Operations community to provide close air support.

According to sources on the ground, the special operator on the roof of the CIA annex had visual contact and a laser pointing at the Libyan mortar team that was targeting the CIA annex. The operators were calling in coordinates of where the Libyan forces were firing from.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta told reporters at the Pentagon on Thursday that there was not a clear enough picture of what was occurring on the ground in Benghazi to send help.
"There's a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking going on here," Panetta said Thursday. "But the basic principle here ... is that you don't deploy forces into harm's way without knowing what's going on."
Fox News has learned that there were two military surveillance drones redirected to Benghazi shortly after the attack on the Consulate began. They were already in the vicinity. The second surveillance craft was sent to relieve the first drone, perhaps due to fuel issues. Both were capable of sending real time visuals back to US officials in Washington, D.C. Any U.S. official or agency with the proper clearance, including the White House Situation Room, State Department, CIA, Pentagon and others, could call up that video in real time on their computers.

Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were part of a Global Response Staff or GRS that provides security to CIA case officers and provides countersurveillance and surveillance protection. They were killed by a mortar shell at 4 a.m. Libyan time, nearly seven hours after the attack on the Consulate began -- a window that represented more than enough time for the U.S. military to send back-up from nearby bases in Europe, according to sources familiar with Special Operations. Four mortars were fired at the annex. The first one struck outside the annex. Three more hit the annex. 

A motorcade of dozens of Libyan vehicles, some mounted with 50 caliber machine guns, belonging to the February 17th Brigades, a Libyan militia which is friendly to the US, finally showed up at the CIA annex at approximately 3 a.m. An American Quick Reaction Force sent from Tripoli had arrived at the Benghazi airport at 2 a.m. (four hours after the initial attack on the Consulate) and was delayed for 45 minutes at the airport because they could not at first get transportation, allegedly due to confusion among Libyan militias who were supposed to escort them to the annex, according to Benghazi sources. The American special operators, Woods, Doherty and at least two others were part of the Global Response Staff, a CIA element, based at the CIA annex and were protecting CIA operators who were part of a mission to track and repurchase arms in Benghazi that had proliferated in the wake of Muammar Qaddafi's fall. Part of their mission was to find the more than 20,000 missing MANPADS, or shoulder-held missiles capable of bringing down a commercial aircraft. According to a source on the ground at the time of the attack, the team inside the CIA annex had captured three Libyan attackers and was forced to hand them over to the Libyans. U.S. officials do not know what happened to those three attackers and whether they were released by the Libyan forces. 

Fox News has also learned that Stevens was in Benghazi that day to be present at the opening of an English-language school being started by the Libyan farmer who helped save an American pilot who had been shot down by pro-Qaddafi forces during the initial war to overthrow the regime. That farmer saved the life of the American pilot and the Ambassador wanted to be present to launch the Libyan rescuer's new school.

Texas Threatens To Arrest UN Election Observers

By Julian Pecquet 

Texas authorities have threatened to arrest international election observers, prompting a furious response from the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE).
“The threat of criminal sanctions against [international] observers is unacceptable,” Janez Lenarčič, the Director of the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), said in a statement. “The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
Lawmakers from the group of 56 European and Central Asian nations have been observing U.S. elections since 2002, without incident. Their presence has become a flashpoint this year, however, as Republicans accuse Democrats of voter fraud while Democrats counter that GOP-inspired voter ID laws aim to disenfran

The letter goes on to accuse the group of having met with liberal organizations that oppose Voter ID laws. The OSCE put out an interim report last week saying that “recent state-level legislative initiatives to  limit early voting and introduce stricter voter identification have become highly polarized.”
“The OSCE may be entitled to its opinions about Voter ID laws, but your opinion is legally irrelevant in the United States, where the Supreme Court has already determined that Voter ID laws are constitutional,” Abbott wrote. “If OSCE members want to learn more about our election processes so they can improve their own democratic systems, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the measures Texas has implemented to protect the integrity of elections. However, groups and individuals from outside the United States are not allowed to influence or interfere with the election process in Texas.”
Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) also weighed in, tweeting “No UN monitors/inspectors will be part of any TX election process; I commend @Txsecofstate for swift action to clarify issue.”
In letters to Abbott and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose State Department invited the 44 election observers, Lenarčič reiterated that the group is only there to observe the elections.
chise minority voters.

Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott further fueled the controversy on Tuesday when he sent a letter to the OSCE warning the organization that its representatives “are not authorized by Texas law to enter a polling place” and that it “may be a criminal offense for OSCE’s representatives to maintain a presence within 100 feet of a polling place's entrance.”  

“Our observers are required to remain strictly impartial and not to intervene in the voting process in any way,” Lenarčič said in a statement. “They are in the United States to observe these elections, not to interfere in them.”
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland sought to tone down the controversy during her briefing Thursday. The department is eager to avoid giving the impression that the United States is unwilling to submit to the same scrutiny it demands of others when it comes to human and civil rights.
“Since the initial issue with Texas we've received a letter, both for Secretary Clinton and one for Texas authorities, from the OSCE assuring us and Texas authorities that the OSCE observers are committed to following all U.S. laws and regulations as they do in any country where they observe elections and they will do so as well in Texas,” Nuland said. "To my knowledge [Texas] is the only state that came forward and said 'please reassure us that you're going to follow our state electoral law.' And they have now been reassured."

Liberal Actor: I’m Not Voting For ‘Crappy’ Obama

Rob Schneider voted for Obama in 2008, but refuses to do it in 2012.

Bush Was Attacked by Liberals after 9/11 for Continuing to Read a Book


George W. Bush first heard about the 9/11 attack when chief of staff Andrew Card spoke to him in a whisper while he was reading a book to elementary students in Tampa, Florida.[1] Card only delivered the news to the president after the second plane hit, thinking the first plane crash was a horrible accident. After hearing of the attack, the president kept on reading. When he was finished, he calmly got up and departed.
For his continued reading and his calmness throughout the ordeal, Liberals tore him apart.
Bush was criticized for not acting decisively. He should have raced out of the classroom filled with 7-year-olds and acted presidential. He should have taken command of the situation. The President looked stupefied like he didn’t know what to do.
Bush did the right thing as students who were there looked back 10 years later. The following is from a May 2011 TIME magazine article “The Interrupted Reading: George W. Bush on 9/11”:

“But I’ll always remember watching his face turn red. He got really serious all of a sudden. But I was clueless. I was just 7. I’m just glad he didn’t get up and leave, because then I would have been more scared and confused.” Chantal Guerrero, 16, agrees. Even today, she’s grateful that Bush regained his composure and stayed with the students until The Pet Goat was finished. “I think the President was trying to keep us from finding out,” says Guerrero, “so we all wouldn’t freak out.”
In addition to the Liberal charges against President Bush’s “unpresidential” demeanor, there are the conspiracy theorists who contend that his relaxed behavior was because he knew about the attacks beforehand. If he had known, and wanted to give the impression that he didn’t know, he would have made a greater show of emotion.

Now compare the way President Bush was maligned by the media over continuing to read a children’s book to 7-year-olds when a second plane had crashed into the Twin Towers and how they are nearly dismissing the flood of information that’s coming in that the White House and the State Department knew about the embassy attack and did nothing to stop it.

Let’s not forget the fund raising trip that President Obama took to Las Vegas the next day.
Then there’s the continued lie that the attacks were spontaneous. We were repeatedly told that the riots were the result of an anti-Muhammad video. Obama’s surrogates were sent out to push the video narrative on talk shows. President Obama even went to the United Nations blaming the attacks on the video. None of it was true, and the White House knew it:
“Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.”
This story is so big now that the media have to report on it. The non-traditional media have forced their hand, although I did see a CNN anchor try to push the video-made-them-do-it narrative in her interview with a TIME magazine writer who reported that the guards knew the attacks were planned to take place on the anniversary of 9/11.

If I ever get a call to appear on a talk show (don’t hold your breath), here’s the first thing I will ask the interviewer: “How would you have reported this story if it had happened when George W. Bush or any Republican had been president?”

First Lady: Vote Early Before the Toilet Overflows


I have some news for Michelle Obama; the toilet is already overflowing and Americans are calling for a new plumber. The White House’s unhealthy appetite for Keynesian cuisine has created a huge blockage in our nation’s Honey bucket and voter rooter is on the way.
Last week, our glamorous diet-crazed First Lady encouraged small Wisconsin college audiences to vote early by using a humorous warning about life’s nasty inconveniences like “overflowing toilets”. God forbid an Obama supporter’s toilet breaches its rim any time through Election Day because liberals will be screaming about voter constipation, I mean suppression again. Oh well, perhaps Mrs. Obama is floating a funky excuse for her husband’s defeat in November.
I can hear Debbie Wasserman Schultz: “As a pro-choice Jewish woman and gay marriage supporter, I believe America needs to free itself from our addiction to over flushing foreign made toilets; only then will voters find liberation on Election Day. This is Jim Crow all over again. This is a Republican attempt to steal this election. For the first time in U.S. history minorities have to worry about a clogged toilet when they go to cast their vote. It’s unprecedented.”

I’m surprised that we haven’t heard more about Presidential techniques for unclogging toilets before election season. Washington’s cesspool has been backing up in the White House for years and with the President using money like Charmin you would think clogged overflowing toilets, like childhood obesity, would be a national security issue by now.
Honestly, I, like our First Lady am very concerned about the prospects for epidemic toilet clogging on Election Day. Especially in union dominated Wisconsin. I can’t imagine what new entitlement is being formulated to correct this potential atrocity. I think Eric Holder should deploy the New Black Panther Party (plungers in hand) to assist minority get-out-the-vote drives now through Election Day. With all the time these guys have spent in prison they should be experts at unclogging commodes while avoiding spillage. What’s a little extra public service when an Obama victory in November is at stake?Perhaps we should include commode maintenance as part of our Federal disaster preparedness program?
In all seriousness, if voters in this country can’t manage to get to the polls to cast a vote because of a plumbing problem were sunk as a nation.  Our government has gone over the top with extending early voting, offering free rides to the polls and providing ballots in foreign languages for years. What more does an individual require to make voting any easier? Yet less than seventy percent of eligible voters will participate in elections once again. If men and women dodging bullets can find the time to submit a ballot, no American has an excuse for failing to make their voice heard. Americans better get serious about this election or you may one day (sooner than you think) find yourself flushing your toilets with rain water.

I can’t remember the last time I had to deal with an overflowing toilet. With new and improved water conserving crapper technology I find it hard to fathom how anyone could overflow a toilet these days; but toilets much like election booths aren’t idiot proof. Pulling the lever at the wrong time can have disastrous consequences. Well if this disaster does befall a liberal on Election Day they can find comfort in knowing they won’t be charged double time by a union plumber as it’s not a Federal Holiday.

Black Woman Self-Immolates but Blames It on White Racists


A twenty-year-old black woman named Sharmeka Moffitt in Louisiana claimed that three members of the Ku Klux Klan wrote “KKK” on her body and racial slurs on her car before dousing her with lighter fluid and lighting her on fire. So why is this not big news? Why is MSNBC not taking this and running with it? It would be the perfect anecdote to get Obama reelected. It certainly would have been huge news except that forensic specialists found that the woman set herself on fire. Her fingerprints were on the lighter fluid container and lighter that were recovered at the scene. There is no evidence of her being attacked by three men, much less KKK members. Investigators believe she used toothpaste to scrawl the letters on herself and on her car.
This woman wanted so desperately to be the victim of a hate crime that she was willing to nearly kill herself. Moffitt is now in critical condition in a Shreveport hospital having suffered extensive and self-inflicted burns. Police have to wait until she recovers in order to question her as to why she would invent such a story. It really isn’t that complicated to figure out why a radical liberal would seek so much attention. (I admit I’m going out on a limb by assuming this woman is a liberal. Is that racist?)

This happened fairly recently to a Nebraska lesbian. After the police were notified, she claimed that three masked men broke into her house, tied her down and cut “homophobic” slurs into her body. She also claimed that these men wrote slurs on her walls and almost set her and her house on fire. As it turned out, it was all staged. She had done everything to herself in order to win everybody’s sympathy. There were candlelight vigils done in her honor, nearly $1,000 of donations raised, and she received encouragement and support from her LGBT friends. It was all based on something that never happened. She ended up being arrested for lying to the police.

Both of these cases were definitely “hate crimes.” Moffitt must have hated whites so much that she blamed her self-inflicted injuries on them in hopes that the media would pick up on it and convince all their viewers to hate whites even more. Likewise, Rogers must have hated non-homosexuals so much that she was willing to go to such great lengths and much pain just to be seen as a victim. Would anyone be surprised to find out that Moffitt and Rogers were both Obama supporters?Those on the left have to resort to pathological lying and elaborate role-playing in order to justify their worldview to themselves and others. If they aren’t in enough pain in the real world to elicit sympathy from their society, they have to fabricate their victimization.
Sometimes it backfires when people find out the whole story.

Sarah Palin responds to ‘shuck and jive’ criticism


Sarah Palin responded to the backlash triggered by the use of "shuck and jive" in her criticism of President Barack Obama's handling of the attack in Benghazi, claiming the comment was not racially charged.
"For the record," Palin wrote on her Facebook page, "there was nothing remotely racist in my use of the phrase 'shuck and jive'—a phrase which many people have used, including Chris Matthews, Andrew Cuomo, and White House Press Secretary Jay Carney to name a few off the top of my head."
The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate continued:

In fact, Andrew Cuomo also used the phrase in reference to Barack Obama, and the fact that Mr. Cuomo and I used the phrase in relation to President Obama signifies nothing out of the ordinary. I would have used the exact same expression if I had been writing about President Carter, whose foreign policy rivaled Obama's in its ineptitude, or about the Nixon administration, which was also famously rocked by a cover-up.
I've been known to use the phrase most often when chastising my daughter Piper to stop procrastinating and do her homework. As she is part Yup'ik Eskimo, I'm not sure if this term would be deemed offensive when it's directed at her or if it would be considered benign as in the case of Chris Matthews' use of it in reference to Rachel Maddow. Just to be careful, from now on I'll avoid using it with Piper, and I would appreciate it if the media refrained from using words and phrases like igloo, Eskimo Pie, and "when hell freezes over," as they might be considered offensive by my extended Alaska Native family.

On Wednesday, Chris Matthews slammed Palin on "Hardball," saying "shuck and jive" has "a particular ethnic connection."
"To throw it at the president as an ethnic shot is pretty blatant," Matthews said.
Palin dismissed the MSNBC host's rant:
The outrageously outraged reaction to this expression from perennial hypocrites like Chris Matthews has only made me laugh. Mr. Matthews, let me share with you my favorite Irish toast: "May we always be happy, and may our enemies always know it."

Benghazi cover-up: 'This dwarfs Watergate'

by Joe Kovacs 

PALM BEACH, Fla. – New information suggesting the Obama administration was fully aware of the terror attack at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, within two hours of the breakout of violence is being blasted as a cover-up of major proportions, with the help of national media who are ignoring the revelation.
“This dwarfs Watergate, weapons of mass destruction, whatever,” said radio host Rush Limbaugh Wednesday afternoon.

“This dwarfs Iran-Contra, about which the media spent three solid years trying to take out Ronald Reagan. The latest shoe to drop in the Benghazi disaster is the news that the State Department was e-mailing about the attack on the consulate and the terrorists who they thought were behind it within two hours, and the e-mails went to the Situation Room of the White House. Obama knew.”
For weeks after the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi, Obama and his surrogates proffered that the violence was merely an improptu response to an anti-Muslim video.
But reports today from several agencies including Reuters and CBS News reveal the administration knew precisely what was going on almost immediately, courtesy of emails.
Sharyl Attkisson at CBS says: “At 4:05 p.m. Eastern time, on September 11, an alert from the State Department Operations Center was issued to a number government and intelligence agencies. Included were the White House Situation Room, the office of the Director of National Intelligence, and the FBI.
“‘US Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack” — “approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four COM (Chief of Mission/embassy) personnel are in the compound safe haven.’”

And Reuters reports the emails specifically mention the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.

Limbaugh said for the administration to keep claiming it was reaction to a video was worse than misleading.
“They lied, folks. I don’t know how else to say it,” he said. “They knew exactly what happened and who was responsible for it and they knew what was happening. They knew it was not a video, they knew it was not a protest that had gotten out of hand … . It was a preplanned terror attack. There was real-time video of it.”
Limbaugh also scorched Obama for not sending in U.S. military to help the Americans at the consulate:
“The president may not have been aware that he had aircraft carriers in the region that planes land on and take off from and they go out and complete missions and they come back and they land. And we got these things they call submarines. They go under the water so the bad guys can’t see ‘em. They’re in the region, too. We got some naval assets in that region that could have been used.
“They could have been authorized to take action to save the lives of Americans. Remember: Four dead in a seven-hour attack, two of them died in the final hours. This government made not one move, with full knowledge of what was going on, to protect those Americans. We had hundreds of people watching in real time, folks, as 30 Americans were being attacked for seven hours. Nobody rode to their rescue.”
Limbaugh says most of the national media is now ignoring the revelations from the emails.
“What we’re watching here today is the equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein helping Nixon cover up Watergate,” he said. “The mainstream media is Woodward and Bernstein. Watergate is Benghazi. Except this time, Woodward and Bernstein are helping Nixon cover it up.”

“It’s just maddening,” he continued, “and to have the story basically ignored and covered up today is evidence to me of just how devastating it is. I think the regime is barely holding its campaign together. I think this campaign is leaking. Imagine a dike with all the holes in it, and the holes are the states, and the regime has got people plugging the holes with fingers and doing everything they can to stop the flow. I think they’re very close here to being swept away by a tidal wave. I think everybody involved knows it.”
He suggested several theories as to why the events have transpired as they have, including “gross, unbelievable, incalculable incompetence;” “bald-faced lying;” and a political calculation since Obama has been claiming al-Qaida terrorists have been decimated under his watch.
“There’s another possibility here,” added Limbaugh. “It could be very simple. Obama simply wasn’t engaged when this was going on. He wasn’t around. He didn’t want to be engaged. He didn’t want to be told. He didn’t want to have to do anything. And therefore, they were paralyzed. Nobody knew what to do because he didn’t care.”
