Hillary, Barack Needs You To Take The Fall, Bite The Bullet And Kiss Your Political Career Goodbye

                                       

The Good News: Valerie Jarrett made it back from Martha’s Vineyard alive, thanks in large part to her security detail of highly trained professionals. The Bad News: Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans were killed by Islamic Fundamentalists in Benghazi, primarily because the Obama State Department denied their requests for security.

These are some of the most important facts to emerge from the Vice Presidential Debate, Joe Biden is like a weird relative; a relative you don’t want to leave alone with children, and that he and President Obama received no requests for security from the diplomatic delegation in Libya, despite the sworn testimony of two former security professionals who requested the security.

Some of us who know the president only attended less than half of his intel-briefings wonder if someone might have mentioned the multiple attacks on the diplomatic teams in Benghazi during one of the no show briefings.

During the debate, Biden assured the country and the world, he only speaks for himself and the president, and that they received no such requests.

“We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there.”

Unfortunately, the State Department has acknowledged the receipt of multiple requests for increased security. The State Department officials who have testified before the House Oversight Committee’s panel have not said they relayed the requests to the president; however, Eric Nordstrom top regional security officer in Libya last summer said,

“In those conversations, I was specifically told [by Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb] ‘You cannot request an SST [Site Security Team] extension.’ I determined I was told that because there would be too much political cost. We went ahead and requested it anyway.”

“Too much political cost”, but the death of an ambassador and three employees are only “bumps in the road.” Do you think Charlene Lamb and the Obama Administration wanted to use the Libya War, Obama’s War, as an icon or poster subject for the success of the Obama Foreign Policy and that having armed security would be offensive to Libyans, al-Qaeda, and Leftists in general.

“All of us at post were in sync that we wanted these resources,”

Apparently the need for security was well known among those with their necks on the chopping block. Nordstrom reveals his gut instinct.

“For me, the Taliban is on the inside of the building.”

Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, a Utah National Guardsman who was leading a security team in Libya until August, testified:

“We felt great frustration that those requests were ignored or just never met,”

Darrel Issa has released the unclassified portions of those requests.

Nordstrom provided more testimony:

“because of Libyan political sensitivities, armed private security companies were not allowed to operate in Libya.”

Using a British company with unarmed guards and a local militia patrolling outside the consulate seemed a more viable option to the Obama Administration. It didn’t work that well when security was needed.

Obama has used Biden as his “Seen No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Speak No Evil” point man and unless Hillary can get some dummy like Lamb to put on the suicide vest, she will be taking the fall.

Is it worth it Hillary? Is it worth it to be known as an incompetent fool for the rest of history; a fool who was either a clueless dolt or the ultimate ninny who took a fall to protect the worst president in the history of the United States.

It will be interesting to watch the reaction of the “Most Intelligent Woman In The Country.”

    @Ivan: As far as hard numbers are concerned I doubt anyone knows what was inventoried before the rebellion. What concerned me was that SA-24s were included as I understand they are harder to counter measure. Logic would lead to what ever number was taken having spread through every rat line and smuggling route through the ME and N.Africa. They may well prove to be no more of a factor than Charlie Wilson’s Stingers. The fact that there was no operative plan to secure the caches in the resulting power vacuum after Qaddafi fell left us with a threat. Just how serious a threat is what we seem to be disagreeing over.

    where are you?
    that was good thank you,

    you could not have done worse than the BENGHASI TERRORISTS MURDERS,
    WHY ARE YOU NOT HERE?

    @MataHarley:

    Let’s look at that original post, shall we?

    One thing is certain… NATO and the rebels’ NTA have been derelict in securing these weapons,

    Turkey, Mata, is a member of NATO. Ships are docking in Turkey, or have docked, with these weapons.

    and apparently there are all too many in their midst with an entirely different agenda.

    Let’s look at that statement, the bold-faced word, shall we?

    ap·par·ent·ly/əˈparəntlē/
    Adverb:

    Used by speakers or writers to avoid committing themselves to the truth of what they are saying.

    This is what I dislike about your argumentative style-always misdirection, obfuscation and non-committal adverbs sprinkled throughout your posts.

    And it’s most likely the targets will be western military powers or, worse yet… another passenger jetliner.

    There, the last sentence. I nailed you to the cross over the last year like you were Spartacus. You, Mata, you brought up the imminent “passenger jetliner” attacks, not me.

    The fact is, and facts are to you like a cross is to a vampire, there have been no attacks on PJs since these MANPADS disappeared.

    You see, I call you on your bovine fecal matter (one needs wings to stay above all the crap you write) and you still won’t admit you were wrong.

    You are intellectually dishonest, Mata. You insinuated we’d be seeing Jetliners falling from the sky due to said thefts, but since no liners have been attacked, it’s safe to say, Mrs. Non-committal, that the weapons didn’t fall into the hands of AQ.

    Damn, woman, give you enough rope and you hang yourself.

    Ivan, if you read the links to the articles, it was the intelligence and State Depts that specifically noted the risk to passenger jets. And if you think that repeating them mention of the passenger airliner risk – repeated in the various links I already provided in prior comments (which you, apparently, don’t bother to read) – equates to “seeing jetliners falling from the sky”, you’re one challenged reader.

    Back to work. No time for whiny, pathethic snivelers in my agenda today. You’ll just have to gnaw on your own limb to escape the shackles you’ve gotten yourself into.

    Friends, there you have it. When cornered, like a rat, she lashes out with personal attacks.

    SHE wrote about the jetliner attacks, not I! She is the one who now won’t stay by words she wrote a year+ ago.

    I called her on her bovine fecal-matter and she now says it was the “State Department”!

    Whatever. Just know, Mata, I will always be there to fact-check your posts and call you out on the obfuscation and misdirection that others seem incapable to see through.

    Interesting for a woman to do something of this magnitude for a man she does NOT like. I wonder if She regrets leaving the senate? I guess we will have to wait for her memoir, but only if its truthful.

    Stayce: It is doubtful whether either of the Clintons make a move without weighing the effects on the party and their own careers; although, the party will be a secondary consideration.
