President Obama has settled on America’s new National Security Advisor and it is Susan ‘Benghazi Movie’ Rice. In this culture of lies and reward for protecting Obama, we can only expect that Obama will not waver from his administration’s corrupt ways.
Some analysts have pinned Rice’s appointment to be a prime, corner office reward for her part in the cover-up of Benghazi. This effort keeps her quietly protected within the White House ‘inner circle’.
Benghazi email communications released just weeks ago, have proven not only that the FBI repeatedly confirmed, with resolute assurance, that al Qaeda members were involved in the 9/11/2012 attack on our US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
In response to the suggestion that Republicans are simply being petty regarding the Rice appointment, Lt. Col. Allen West said, “When you question someone that clearly misled and lied to the American people that’s not being petty.”
This corruption transcends partisan politics; two days after the attack, liberal MSNBC host Rachel Maddow gave detailed notes on why no reasonable person would consider the anti-Islam movie to have anything whatsoever to do with the attacks on the Benghazi consulate compound. Maddow pointed out the ludicrous nature of attributing the attacks at all to some erroneous movie:
Maddow gave a timeline of escalating attacks in Benghazi leading up to the September 11th attack and pointing to al Qaeda targeting of The West. In the first attack, “The Imprisoned Shaykh Omar Abulrahman (aka ‘The Blind Shaykh’) Brigades in Libya Claim Responsibility for Attack on Red Cross Office in Libya (May 27, 2012).” The ‘Blind Shaykh’ is currently imprisoned in North Carolina and the group’s attack was an attempt to get the Shaykh released.
Next a “planned, executed and video-recorded attack on the Benghazi consulate occurred.” The Brigade hit the consulate with an IED in response to a US drone strike that killed the second ranking guy in al Qaeda Central, al-Libi. The same month, another attack was executed on a British envoy.
Finally, the morning of September 11, 2012, al Qaeda Central put out a video that called for attacks again to avenge the killing of al-Libi. As Maddow recounted, “by that night we had … an organized, military-style, sustained, sophisticated, complex attack on that same US Consulate, again.”
Maddow also reported that witnesses said, “this could have only been a well-planned attack. The attackers arriving in four cars, all at once, flying black flags, heavily armed … all say there was no protest at all. They saw that it began as an organized attack on the consulate.”
Maddow said, “Anybody who tells you that what happened to our Embassador and our Consulate in Libya was the result of a protest over an offensive movie, you should ask them why they think that … It does not seem to be borne out by the facts, the more facts we get. One of the known local militant groups … has issued at least a vaguely worded claim of at least participation, if not responsibility, for the attack on the consulate.”
“This is not about that … stupid anti-Islam movie…What matters to our own national security as Americans is how much these groups and others like them are interested in and moving toward international terrorism,” said Maddow.
In a 9/14/2012 press conference with Jay Carney, Obama’s Press Secretary, on the issue of Benghazi, Jay stated, “The unrest around the region has been in response to this video. We do not, at this moment, have information to suggest or to tell you that would indicate that any of this unrest was preplanned.” Reports on the ground in Libya soundly refute this statement and the White House knew it.
Given such flagrant disregard for the security of our own representatives, our Americans overseas, Susan Rice can be considered among the worst possible candidates to advise on our national security. The White House knew the truth, the Benghazi attacks were deliberate, preplanned terrorism, Susan Rice was sent out to boldly mislead America and now she is being kept close and quiet.
