This is just breaking from the New York Times.

IMO...THIS is just NYT-B.S....probably concocted to give some political cover for it's beloved Hillary Clinton's run for Prez. They are desperate!

Nevertheless, here it it:


The New York Times says that the September 11, 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, was led by fighters who benefited directly from NATO's extensive air power and logistics support during the uprising against Moammar Gadhafi.

Times correspondent David Kirkpatrick writes that contrary to claims by some U.S. lawmakers, the attack was fueled in large part by anger at an amateur video made in the United States denigrating Islam. His report is based on extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack.

In that 2012 attack, angry mobs killed four Americans — including Ambassador Christopher Stevens. In the immediate aftermath, the Obama administration said the deaths were the result of an anti-West demonstration that got out of control. Muslims around the world were angered by the crude video ridiculing the Prophet Muhammad.

Some reports said that the Benghazi attack was organized by an al-Qaida-linked terrorist group. The Obama administration came under harsh criticism from Republicans in Congress for the alleged failure to detect and prevent the attack. Many especially blamed then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton.

Kirkpatrick's report on Saturday says that the central figure in the September 11 attack in Benghazi was anti-Gadhafi militia leader Ahmed Abu Khattala.

Absolutely is an effort to start people thinking "positive" about Hillary.

The silly effort put forth by the Administration to get people to believe the "video" did it all is ludicrous at best.

The ultra Left will use every tangent and tactic to divert the Benghazi boondoggle away from Hillary.

The *Real* Hillary is right here to see.....

"SHOCK! Hillary Clinton argues - What difference, at this point, does it make about how it happened?"

How come the Bengazi "angry mob" had mortars, rocket propelled grenades, and AK-47s and other demonstration did NOT?
The live video Hillary watched all during should corroborate her "story"...right Kirkpatrick?

And the continued white-wash of history continues!

Watch the portrayal of Hillary as a leader beset by inner conflicts and self-recrimination over the deaths. What a true, real leader would feel.

I don't believe the majority of the American people are stupid enough to vote for billary, but it doesn't really matter.
If TPTB want her for their next pawn, they'll make it happen.
If she becomes president, I will be very sad to be American.

Nobody ever rioted over a Hall and Oates video or worse still Rupert Holmes "pina Colada song".
I don't buy the anti-Islamic video that nobody saw before as causing the Benghazi attacks either.
Video must have had a whopping couple hundred views at that point.

I remember the msm reporting protests in 22 countries because of the video. These protests went on for weeks. The video was released in July 2012 and was altered in the beginning of Sept 2012.

To me, Benghazi was one of those things that invoked outrage in me, like many others, but in me it was for a different reason. And that's why to me it's an enigma to this day. I feel like I'm stuck in the middle of two warring factions. What really bothered me was the fact that the place was infested with CIA. It had been mentioned at some point that the state department was funneling arms to Syria and wanted to do it independently of the CIA, who normally would perpetrate such evils, and that's how the ambassador got into trouble. For one thing, I know there is no difference between CIA and state department. So such an anomaly would be a farce from the start. And the first news coming out of the event spoke of some 4 or 5 CIA there at the time, then there's a CIA 'compound', then we find out there's something like 35 CIA there. Was it sanctioned by the sovereign government there for the US to have a CIA foothold in that country? With the CIA history involved in the overthrow and disruption of governments in areas of the world where the US has commercial interests, I'm not surprised, but very disappointed that our government is yet again perpetrating evil on fragile governments. If the US had not had such a CIA stronghold and was not involved in such evil then the whole thing never would have happened. You poke a stick in the hornets' nest, you get stung.

Here's some 'ammo' from last year....

Dec 10, 2012

Shortly after the October 2011 death of Qaddafi, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton announced in Tripoli that the U.S. was committing $40 million to help Libya “secure and recover its weapons stockpiles.” Department of State Assistant Secretary Andrew Shapiro confirms DOS had a weapons buy-back program in Libya that was also supported by the UK who gave $1.5 million, the Netherlands gave $1.2 million, Germany gave about $1 million and our neighbor to the north, Canada gave $1.6 million to purchase the deadly arsenal that went missing after the fall of Qaddafi.

The State Department was specifically looking to acquire the 20,000 MANPADS (they are commonly known as man-portable air shoulder-fire missiles) that went missing once Qaddafi was killed.



OOps !!!


Did CIA and State Department Run Illegal Arms Trafficking in Benghazi?


Oh wait, never mind......I forgot:
"What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Everybody knows all Libyans have AK47's and grenade launchers (and drive VW buses.)
Just SOP for them when they head for the mall.

Here's a pic of one of her support group Christmas cards.

This is nothing more than the NYT's attempt to bury a little life-preserver support article for Hillary to refer to when she comes under greater scrutiny for Benghazi before her run, when she is called again before congress...and during her run, when she comes under attack in the primaries and the election.

Notice how it was released at a time between the holidays when people would be occupied/distracted and it would gain little attention. Later, she'll be able to reference it to her advantage and possibly in her own defense.

Additionally, it tells Clinton that, should she be elected, the NYT has always supported and stood by her side, even though they may be forced to cover future Benghazi testimony and other embarrassing facts which are bound to arise during her run.

Oh, how far the mighty have fallen.
There was once a time when 'The Old Grey Lady' was respected. Now, it is simply a propaganda shill for the Liberal elite.

Personally, if it is between Clinton and Christie, then the bloated, annoying, loudmouth will lose out.

That leaves us with Christie. Lord help us.

The real story about Benghazi is not who did the attacking but the reaction by the Obama administration and specifically Hillary. The Easter bunny could be responsible for the deaths but why was there no help sent? They had plenty of warning.
President bush was bashed for his response to hurricane Katrina,( and should have been). But I want to know why the city wasn't better prepared. They had plenty of warning.
This story is just another step to get Hillary back in the White House.

Had privilege to meet and work with large groups of muslims. These were all considered moderate and helping us. I learned they are mostly just like us. But they have a hidden side. One where you can see a change in a second and it flows rapidly one to another.

They have an ability to hate beyond anything I have ever seen. You could be the best of brothers and one wrong word and they would never speak to you again. You would often get the feeling that the smile in your face would turn into a knife as soon as you turned your back.

I was told as much by one young man I had befriended.

Okay, you heard it here first. Well, maybe not first, or second, or...... Oh, anyway, hillary is your next president and there is nothing you can do about it.

When it is all said and done remember yea that Bot, he told me so....

Of course that is if some doom porn does not get us first lol. Did you see that giant rock that came in and was caught on film yesterday or day before, sorry bout memory lol. Luckily, or unlucky for the hunters it appears to have gone down in ocean. It was bigger than what came into Russia.

But, if we make it and if she too makes it, she will be president.

Think about it. The ultimate revenge. Hillary bent over the desk as bill walks in on her..... Doh, my eyes at the thought.... I mean my mind at the thought.... Oh that picture stuck there for a while.....

I just ruined you for the rest of the day lol.....

Just think about the poor secret service guy who had to perform his patriotic duty lol....

Wake up folks. This is a classic PTB effort.

Think about this: No Hillary For President = chance for the nobodies to run for office.

If Hillary looks like she's got a chance ... then the 'other team' (if there IS even such thing) has to put their 'best' candidate forward to 'defeat the evil.' If TPTB pull this off again prepare for more despair. Please don't fall for it.
