Libya: Clinton’s Dance of Death with Terrorist Clients

Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely: Benghazi attack carried out by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists?
John Robles

[T]he terrorist groups most likely connected with the attack, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar al-Sharia, and other groups were working with the CIA and the US government in Libya in the operation to overthrow Muammar Kaddafi. For a Secretary of State who is blinded by her own political ambitions this connection would not be something she would want to come out.

The aggressive invasion and assassination of the head of state of the sovereign country of Libya was a crime against humanity. Of course they are going to lie.

Playing politics with the deaths of their personnel, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have proven: power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Newly uncovered e-mails show that Clinton and Obama knew within hours that the Benghazi attack was carried out by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists. The same terrorists they contracted to destroy Libya and assassinate the late Muammar Gaddafi.

You have to hand it to United States Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, you could get whiplash watching her flip-flop back and forth, her statements and positioning on the Benghazi attack changing and dodging back and forth like some Wimbledon tennis match on amphetamines with the fast-forward locked on hyper-speed.

Not long ago I wrote about the Clintons and their hiring of a legal team in the event that she was blamed for the security failures that allowed the Benghazi attack to take place. Clinton took the fall the next day, in a political move to protect Obama’s re-election bid. I also went into the fact that the attack was actually aimed at a CIA base in Benghazi and not on Stevens. Clinton has not gone into this. Now it is revealed that Clinton and the Obama administration knew it was a terrorist attack almost immediately, and said nothing.

Another political move? This latest revelation begs a lot of questions, among them: are Clinton’s political ambitions and her dream of being the first woman president of the United States in 2016 getting in the way of her performing her job as Secretary of State? Is she incompetent? Or is she just following the Clinton tradition of flipping and flopping as the wind changes?

Whatever the case for the Clinton obfuscation, the release of the e-mails is damning to put it mildly. Yet Clinton continues to side-step, dodge and obfuscate. She warns us to take the e-mails cautiously, and downplays their significance, even saying that the news that it was a terrorist attack came from social networks and that is not evidence.

The e-mails in question started to come in within 20 minutes of the attack, and according to Reuters were obtained from government sources. Reuters reports that the first email was sent at 16:05 Washington time, 20-30 minutes after the attack began, with the subject line being “U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack”. The text read: “[A]pproximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well. Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four (redacted) personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support.”

The second e-mail was sent at 16:54 Washington time with the subject being: “Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi” and text reporting that : “[T]he firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi had stopped and the compound had been cleared…a ‘response team’ was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.”

A third e-mail sent at 18:07 carried the subject line: “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack.” The message reported: “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.”

Why then did the White House and Clinton continue to place the blame on the video “The Innocence of Muslims” for days after the attack? Well, for one the terrorist groups most likely connected with the attack, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Ansar al-Sharia, and other groups were working with the CIA and the US government in Libya in the operation to overthrow Muammar Gaddafi. For a Secretary of State who is blinded by her own political ambitions this connection would not be something she would want to come out.

In fact, as was made clear by the actions of the Clintons in gathering a legal team, they are terrified of the American public seeing any failure in Libya. Clinton and her glib “We came! We saw! He died!” comments on the brutal and unjust assassination of Gaddafi from the start showed the true beast beneath her aging and waning exterior. That and her self-congratulatory stance on the decimation of yet another country by the US proves her godless inhumanity and the fact that she will do anything, including murdering thousands, if not millions, to attain her political ambitions.

This time the checks and balances come from the Republican side, Democrats being cowed into submission to protect the party’s president and Clinton. According to ABC News, Republican Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte wrote a letter questioning Obama why his administration “consistently described the attack for days afterward as a spontaneous response to an anti-Islam video. These emails make clear that your administration knew within two hours of the attack that it was a terrorist act and that Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan militant group with links to al-Qaeda, had claimed responsibility for it… This latest revelation only adds to the confusion surrounding what you and your administration knew about the attacks in Benghazi, when you knew it, and why you responded to those tragic events in the ways that you did.”

Clinton and Obama may tell a lie or two to the American people every day; they are politicians; they are concerned for their political futures. It is a shame that they would play politics with the deaths of their own personnel and continue to attempt to paint their complete utter and total failure in Libya as some sort of victory.

Unless killing Muammar Gaddafi at any cost was the goal to begin with? The aggressive invasion and assassination of the head of state of the sovereign country of Libya was a crime against humanity. Of course they are going to lie.

    We have truly lost our way.There are good people who stand by and do nothing to acquire or retain a position of power.They do not need the money.There is an emptiness in these
    people that is so void of humanity ,that nothing can feel it up.Nobel prize winner(peace)solid
    American citizen and mother,accomplished people sell their souls to the devil and what price
    glory,.It is hard to watch.I am 63 years old and i have never seen this depth of deceit and disregard for others in my lifetime(i live in America)The wars or conflicts if you may tally 20
    last count,the killings go on endlessly.No one has a reasonable answer,why.We know,as a
    matter of fact.We have been lied to,why keep killing.What is wrong with US…………..
