CIA officer confirmed no protests before misleading Benghazi account given

Information on ground rejects protest account


Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show.

The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began as a protest over an anti-Islam video.

That the talking points used by Mrs. Rice, who was then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, were written by a CIA that ignored the assessment by its own station chief inside Libya, has emerged as one of the major bones of contention in the more than two years of political fireworks and congressional investigations into the Benghazi attack.

What has never been made public is whether Mr. Morell and others at the CIA explicitly shared the station chief’s assessment with the White House or State Department.

Two former intelligence officials have told The Washington Times that this question likely will be answered at a Wednesday hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence during which Mr. Morell is scheduled to give his public testimony.

It's apparent to me that they're doing everything in their power to play this Benghazi incident down, and I give you three guesses who was behind it, her initials are Hillary Clinton, she knows this will be her Achilles heel, which tells me she has every intention of running in 2016, now people her up against Jeb Bush, he is probably going to make her look like the ultimate patriot, it's just another game to manipulate the people, and further their agenda, we have to stand firm in our resolve, and vote these commie bastards out, or America is doomed.

No shortages of traitors on this cover-up. Hillary Clinton and the POTUS are front and center. I hope we will know before 2016, but the Republican leaders are not helping at all.  The Executive Branch has either controlled the Legislative Branch or the leaders from both are in on the treasonous act. Perhaps there are other reasons, but they escape me.

Stand firm Patriots!!

 They do their best to cover things up in Benghazi so Hillary or Obama are anyone else isn't involved in not saving American lives.. Once they've paid everyone off to spread the lies and cover up they'll tell the Liberals that its the GOP that are racist .. That even though they think their cleared its the Right just beating a dead horse.. Its the same oh same oh BS that the Right are pushing..  Obama and Hillary are good and the evil GOP just won't let it go and push their media buds to carry the story of lies to Liberals..

I am sure this fiasco will drag on until "after" the elections, if ever.  Delay after delay.

I wonder if any of it really matters anymore ! 

Listening to the Benghazi coverup before the elections was beyond my comprehension. It was the press coverup that most revealed the death of a free society. Add the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner pleading the 5th, listening to the story of Catherine Engelbrecht....when do liberals start to care? I am more amazed at liberals than the politicians. We KNOW what Hillary and Obama and Susan and Eric are! It is the liberals who are beyond shame. They never discuss or acknowledge or demand honesty. They are the death of America.

I always have this final question. All these investigations are for the lies. When is anyone going to investigate the actions of the Commander In Chief who did nothing - not even pick up a phone to inquire - for the 7-9 hours it took Ty Woods and Glen Doherty to die. They disobeyed orders to give their lives protecting Americans and Obama could not even pick up a phone! When all generals and agency leaders are held responsible for their departments, agencies and their troops - when will Obama be held accountable for the men who gave their lives so that others lived to tell the story?

if they gave half as much attention as the attacks on the twin towers several people in this government would be in jail right now....

Pay-Back !!! Pedophile Who Assaulted Nearly 200 Kids Stabbed To Death In Prison

A convicted pedophile who abused almost 200 children was stabbed to death in North Yorkshire, England, on Sunday.

Richard Huckle, 33, from Ashford, Kent, was given 22 life sentences in 2016 after he admitted to sexually abusing 71 kids whose ages ranged from six months to 12 years between 2006 and 2014, according to the BBC.

The report said Huckle was attacked with a makeshift knife while inside his cell at the Full Sutton Prison.

At the pedophile’s trial in 2016, investigators said they found over 20,000 indecent photos and videos of his assaults, which were shared with other pedophiles via a site on the dark web called The Love Zone.

Reports said that prior to his arrest, Huckle posed as an English teacher and Christian volunteer worker in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where he groomed impoverished children.

In one of his online posts, Huckle reportedly wrote “Impoverished kids are definitely much easier to seduce than middle-class Western kids.”

Reports said he attempted to make money from his crimes by crowdfunding the release of the photos.

“Huckle also created a 60-page ‘how-to’ guide for other pedophiles seeking to evade being caught, and kept a scorecard and points system regarding the children who were abused — leading investigators to speculate he may have as many as 200 victims,” a Fox News report stated.

At his sentencing in 2016, Judge Peter Rook condemned Huckle for his heinous crimes he said had become routine for the pedophile.

Rook commented:

Your offending behavior became entrenched in your everyday life. Your life revolved around your sexual activities with young children. Your distorted beliefs in respect of children are deep-seated. Your self-delusion knows no bounds. It is also clear that, had you not been arrested, you planned to continue the same lifestyle using the expertise that you were keen to show off to and share with other abusers so as to continue your sexual exploitation of the children of such communities.

Reports said prior to his death, Huckle refused to cooperate with authorities when they tried to unlock a cache of encrypted files he had access to that may contain the names of victims and other pedophiles, according to Fox News.
