[VIDEO] Robert Gates Laughs Recalling Obama White House’s Inability to Understand Military Options in LibyaPosted: April 2, 2016
The consulate and its intelligence operation nearby was keeping an eye on weapons transfers to anti-Assad forces in Syria, one of the proposed reasons why the US would have kept a consulate open in that city for so long.
Thanks to Judicial Watch obtaining new memos, Fox News is now reporting that the Obama administration knew that Benghazi was being used as a hub for the transfer of lethal weapons to Syria back in 2012. Former CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell suggested to Bret Baier that the CIA wasn’t doing the transferring, but was watching someone else do it.
…The date of the DIA conclusion (produced by a FOIA lawsuit from Judicial Watch) is remarkable for at least one reason. First, September 16 is an infamous date in the Benghazi timeline, as the date on which Susan Rice did a full Ginsburg to insist that the attack resulted from a spontaneous demonstration tied to an obscure YouTube video.
“The consulate and its intelligence operation nearby was keeping an eye on weapons transfers to anti-Assad forces in Syria, one of the proposed reasons why the US would have kept a consulate open in that city for so long.”
Even though the DIA directly contradicted those talking points supplied by the White House to Rice, they continued to insist on using them for another two weeks, including Hillary Clinton. During that period, the Obama administration kept saying that they had no indication that this was a terrorist plot, even though the president of Libya insisted that it was a planned attack on one of the same shows on which Rice appeared.
“Why keep up the pretense? Obama was in the middle of an election, and didn’t want to acknowledge that he’d been caught with his pants down.”
As Catherine Herridge and Martha McCallum point out, the memo tells a lot more of the story than we knew before. The consulate and its intelligence operation nearby was keeping an eye on weapons transfers to anti-Assad forces in Syria, one of the proposed reasons why the US would have kept a consulate open in that city for so long.

[VIDEO] Krauthammer Blasts ‘Greek God’ Obama For Attacking Fox Over Poverty: ‘He’s Letting Us Know His Arrogance Has No Limits’Posted: May 14, 2015
On Wednesday’s Special Report with Bret Baier, FNC’s Charles Krauthammer slammed President Obama for attacking Fox News’ at an event on poverty at Georgetown University.
Dr. Charles Krauthammer, on Special Report.
“She can’t run on change because she’s been in this administration, she has been around for 30 years, that would be a fraud. She represents the past. In the 90s, it was a good past. In the last six years, it was not that good a past that she’ll be representing.”
From The Corner:
On Thursday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said he thinks the stories surrounding Hillary Clinton’s exclusive use of a private e-mail account and a secret server will not go away. He added that Clinton could be in serious legal trouble, depending on how she responded to a “separation” form that federal officials must sign upon leaving a department.
“If she signed it [the form], it’s perjury; if she didn’t, then she left with government documents, which is illegal,” Krauthammer said….(read more)
“…if she has such a press conference, she will be asked, ‘You turned over 55,000 e-mails. How many are left on your server?’ She will either say, ‘I don’t know’ or ‘I’ll get back to you,’ and then she is going to have to answer, ‘Why don’t you turn them over?’, to which there is no answer.”
Said Charles Krauthammer, on Thursday’s Special Report.
“Of course, the answer, is ’Because I want to hide them, I want to sift them, I want to make sure the ones that are incriminating are kept back.’ She can’t do it because the answers to the questions, if remotely honest, are self-indicting.”
On Tuesday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said the United States’ ongoing negotiations with Iran are misguided and make President Obama’s other foreign policy blunders look favorable by comparison.
“It is an unbelievably bad deal. It makes the Cuba deal look like a really good bargain.”
“This [deal] will mean a lifting of the sanctions, so Iran will be with a very strong economy, undeterred, nothing in any way holding it back; it’s simply catastrophic…”(read more)
“Nobody, including the Iranians, has any faith in the fact that he will actually impose sanctions.”
On Friday’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said the Iranians do not believe President Obama will impose sanctions on their country if current negotiations fall through… Read the rest of this entry »
