Quotes of the day

posted at 8:31 pm on October 13, 2012 by Allahpundit

There are two possibilities. Either the intelligence community had a detailed picture of what happened in Benghazi that night and failed to share it with other administration officials and the White House. Or the intelligence community provided that detailed intelligence picture to others in the administration, and Obama, Biden, Clinton, Susan Rice, and others ignored and manipulated the intelligence to tell a politically convenient—but highly inaccurate—story.

If it’s the former, DNI James Clapper should be fired. If it’s the latter, what happened in Benghazi—and what happened afterwards—will go down as one of the worst scandals in recent memory.

It seems far more likely that it’s the latter. After all, is it conceivable that White House officials at the highest levels were not actively engaged in interagency meetings to determine what happened in Benghazi? Is it conceivable that intelligence officials, knowing there was no evidence at all of a link between the film and Benghazi, would fail to tell the president and his colleagues that their claims were unfounded? Is it conceivable that somehow the latest intelligence on the 9/11 attacks was left out of Obama’s intelligence briefings in the days after 9/11? It would have been a priority for every professional at the CIA, the State Department, and the National Security Council to discover exactly what happened in Benghazi as soon as possible. Is it conceivable that the information wasn’t passed to the most senior figures in the administration?

No, it’s really not. And therefore, the fact that these senior figures misled us—and still mislead us—is a scandal of the first order.

***

The administration desperately needs a scapegoat to keep this scandal as far from the White House as possible. And that is why I think that, beyond Biden’s fact-challenged statements, the more consequential thing he did last night was to try to make the intelligence community (IC) the scapegoat (and I am not the only one who picked up on this). Based on this interview with Obama’s deputy campaign manager, the fingering of the IC appears to be a deliberate, coordinated strategy by the politicos — and it is very risky.

First, as numerous fact-checkers have already pointed out, the administration did not merely go with whatever the IC told them. They went with whatever was the most politically useful story at the time. The Obama campaign keeps complaining about how Romney-Ryan have politicized this issue, but in fact the Obama campaign has played this as a political issue from the very start.

Second, the IC can fight back. Frustration has been mounting for years within the IC over the way the administration has politicized intelligence. At some point, that frustration could bubble over into retaliatory leaks and damaging revelations.

***

Former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden has joined the chorus of GOP voices slamming Vice President Biden’s comments on the White House’s inconsistent explanation of the Sept. 11 assault on the American Consulate in Libya…

“It is clear that any failure was not on the part of the intelligence community, but on the part of White House decision-makers who should have listened to, and acted on, available intelligence,” Hayden said in a joint statement with former Homeland Security chief Michael Chertoff issued Friday.

“Blaming those who put their lives on the line is not the kind of leadership this country needs,” Hayden added.

***

It sure looks like Vice President Joe Biden put the blame on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, his potential 2016 rival, for the security failings Benghazi. “We weren’t told they wanted more security,” Biden declared. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney backed Biden up, saying it’s a State Department (i.e. Hillary) issue.

Will Hillary now retaliate and protect herself by leaking word that the White House did too know? Will her husband continue to tour the country trying to pull Obama’s bacon out of the fire (as he did at the convention) even as Obama points a finger at his wife? Will they all cut some sort of deal in which Hillary agrees to take the fall and Bill soldiers on … in exchange for, what? Have they already cut a deal? Is the White House going to try to hang its hat on the idea that Obama and Biden didn’t know, but maybe their staffs knew? Will that really fly? Aren’t they responsible for their staffs? Will the staffs fight back?

***

To “politicize” means “to give a political character to.” It is a reductive term, capturing the peculiarly shrunken horizons of politics: “Gee, they nuked Israel. D’you think that will hurt us in Florida?” So media outlets fret that Benghazi could be “bad” for Obama — by which they mean he might be hitting the six-figure lecture circuit four years ahead of schedule. But for Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods, it’s real bad. They’re dead, over, gonesville. Given that Obama and Secretary Clinton refer to Stevens pneumatically as “Chris,” as if they’ve known him since third grade, why would they dishonor the sacrifice of their close personal friend by peddling an utterly false narrative as to why he died? You want “politicization”? Secretary Clinton linked the YouTube video to the murder of her colleagues even as the four caskets lay alongside her at Andrews Air Force Base — even though she had known for days that it had nothing to do with it. It’s weird enough that politicians now give campaign speeches to returning coffins. But to conscript your “friend”’s corpse as a straight man for some third-rate electoral opportunism is surely as shriveled and worthless as “politicization” gets…

In the days before the attack Joe Biden had been peddling his Obama campaign slogan that “bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive.” The first successful terrorist attack on U.S. sovereign territory since 9/11, and on the very anniversary and by al-Qaeda-linked killers, was not helpful to the Obama team. And so the nature of the event had to be “politicized”: Look, over there — an Islamophobic movie! “Greater love hath no man than this,” quoth the president at Chris Stevens’ coffin, “that a man lay down his life for his friends.” Smaller love hath no man than Obama’s, than to lay down his “friend” for a couple of points in Ohio.

I don’t thrive on hatred and do not want my life filled with hatred. If you are different than me, it’s no big deal as long as you aren’t hating on me or trying to control my every thought and action or trying to kill me. Just don’t try and tell me what I should think or what I am allowed to believe damn it. Then believe it or not we’ll be ok.

“…misguided us…”?

There’s one heck of a difference between accidentally veering your vehicle in a lane and deliberately driving it off of a cliff.

That difference is immoral, corrupt, deceitful, distrustful, manipulative, un-presidential, shameful, despicable, complicit, if not criminal.

Otherwise, it is just massive ineptness (even after the information was known by us they continued the false narrative) in our very security and they all deserve to be fired.

Investigate and, if it is as it appears, try them for political acts of a criminal nature.

LAS VEGAS , Oct. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — With the election less than one month away, Mitt Romney leads by 3 points over President Obama in the key battleground state of Nevada. Just prior to the debate in Colorado both candidates increased their presence in Nevada. Mitt Romney opened offices in Hispanic areas of Las Vegas while President Obama personally delivered pizza to his volunteers.

Obama is now suffering the fallout of last week’s debate, which is demonstrated in a recent poll conducted by Dane & Associates. Just a week ago, this race was a dead heat, but now after the debate, Romney has moved to 49% to Obama’s 46%. “It looks like the voters are making up their minds here in Nevada ,” says Tony Dane president of Dane & Associates. “Only 3 percent are undecided and 2% are voting for 3rd party candidates.”

When Bengazi question comes up at the debate, Mitt should say, “Mr President, in light of the timeline and intelligence that has come to light and the contradictory statements from the highest levels of the Executive as well as the State Department… were you lying then, or are you lying now…? I yield the rest of my two minutes for you to explain yourself…”

This is not going to effect the low-information voter. Too muddy. “Some Americans died in the Middle East and the president and his administration said it was because of a video but it wasn’t…what???”

I know that’s sad. I know it’s deplorable, even. But there it is.

It would still take Obama gutting and cooking kittens on the White House lawn for some people to get it.

Obama blames ‘systemic failure’ of U.S. Intelligence.
Strike Two:
Times Square bomber, no connection to terrorist groups,
was a ‘lone wolf’ incident.
Obama blames an ‘astounding Intelligence failure’.
Strike Three:
Benghazi.
Protest. Video. Intelligence fail.

Military pundits are saying that the embassy attack was viewed in real time by satellites?, drones? etc. We know who, what, when, and where this all happened. Further we could and can target every enemy that participated !Mr Muslim Bow Down Low president will not attack his brothas in the Muslim Bruthahood.We have had Pearl Harbor after Pearl Harbor like attacks under this coward and he will not fight to defend the U.S.A. He is guilty of treason and dereliction of duty and should be impeached! He readily attacks American citizens re some movie maker or states, broadcasters,political opponents, businessmen, churches, that he doesn’t like! I’ve had enough of this bunch of traitors! Remember in November if we last that long! The sole job of president is CIC and Obama is an epic failure!

High crimes and misdemeanors. Would impeachment proceedings now help or hurt him in November? The fastest way to get rid of him would be to vote him out. If that doesn’t work, make sure the House and Senate are Republican enough to make an impeachment stick.

Re: Affleck on Jon Stewart show

“Do you expect the President to know the security situations at over 200 embassies worldwide?”

Well, Mr. Affleck, I do expect the President to be aware of all of these security situations. I also expect the President to be aware of gunrunning operations being conducted by the FBI. I also expect the President to have the foresight to see the dangers in an “Arab Spring”. I really expect the President to attend ALL of his security briefings.

You know, this Presidentin’ is not easy. That is why someone as amateurish and inexperienced as the one we got now has no business trying to be President. We need a President who has experience running large enterprises successfully, who knows how to process reams of information in a productive manner, and can take responsibility for himself and his whole enterprise. Thankfully, we have have such a candidate.

LOL..she did it on purpose..The man started having a fit..basically-he told my mom..no we are a Muslim country. She told him, in America we are mainly a Christian nation but free and our stores and market places sell all items of all faiths. I’m not telling this well..but basically to tie this in..he made it loud and clear they were a Muslim country. No apologies.

St. Paul says He will abandon us, but we know that Abraham convinced God to stay destruction if as few as 10 righteous men could be found.

Until I went to DU and Kos, I had never – in nearly 68 years of life – seen, literally, hundreds of people celebrating in the most vile terms imaginable, the death of someone simply because they were a Republican rather than a democRAT/socialist. And, it wasn’t a one-time thing. No aberration there. It was “normal” for them. Celebrating the death of their political foes – and wishing for death upon others.
And we won’t even get into their vile remarks about a newborn with Downs.
Yet, the leftoid drones all claim to be “the sensitive, caring ones“.

Solaratov on October 14, 2012 at 12:29 PM

Smaller love hath no man than Obama’s, than to lay down his “friend” for a couple of points in Ohio.

Steyn has nailed the Jack-ass-in-Chief like few others ever have.

For such a “historic” figure, Obama is a very small person. It’s time for the millions of hard-working minority voters to get over him and move on to something better: freedom, prosperity and success.

You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood up for something, sometime in your life. ~Churchill

I see lots that makes me think people are moving into deeper faith.

Movies, TV shows and music from people of faith are gaining in number and in viewers.

I hear more open talk of God among my co workers and even customers whom I deal with on a day to day basis.

I am active in the pro life community and see that community growing in numbers and in the care we can provide to women choosing to have their child rather than abort it.

Even letters to the editors in the local paper have more references to God and Jesus and calls to a renewal of faith in this country.

I am hopeful, but fearful that the movement is not yet strong enough.

I trust God completely and if Obama is still to be our judgement from God, then I can accept that. I pray though that God hears the cry of His faithful and moves this nation to reject Obama and all he stands for.
