Perhaps the biggest question is why the State Department would hire a group that openly displayed its admiration for al-Qaida, and ask it to participate in the defense of its diplomatic mission.
The banner, or “cover photo” of one of the group’s Facebook pages, shows an Islamic fighter, or mujahid, with a portable rocket launcher resting on his shoulder.
The distinctive black flag of al-Qaida can be seen fluttering to the man’s left, attached to the vehicle in which he is riding. The mujahid wears a headband based on the design of the al-Qaida flag. The flag in question features the shahada, or Islamic declaration of faith, and a white circle that is sometimes described as the “seal of Mohammed.” US Hired Al-Qaeda-Linked Group to Defend Benghazi Mission
That is a pretty damning piece of information, why would the United States State Department hire a militia with known ties to Al Qaeda? Since it can be assumed that the State Department has, are is supposed to have, reasonably competent intelligence people, whoever hired Martyrs Brigade had to be aware of the connections. That by itself is enough to explain why the Obama administration wants Congress and the American people to forget about Benghazi and move forward. Our embassies and diplomatic outposts are supposed to be guarded by United States Marines, not our enemies.
There’s some question as to whether or not the martyrs brigade ever provided any actual security, if not the checks Hillary Clinton was writing were nothing more than financial contributions to the enemy.. There is a word for giving aid and comfort to the enemy, last time I checked, money is a form of Aid and it can be used to buy Comfort. Not to mention the weaponry necessary to attack an American Diplomatic Mission and kill Americans. A few months ago when Obama tossed Hillary under the bus, people were surprised she didn’t fight back.. Maybe she couldn’t, a treason conviction could end more than just her political career.
Clinton s not stupid, I’m surprised that she allowed herself to get in that kind of position, unless she had some bad advice from someone she trusted,
At first glance, that could explain the White House being less than forthcoming about Benghazi. Having a Secretary of State who helped finance terrorism against the US wouldn’t look good in history books.
It would be nice to say that’s all there was too it. but it gets worse..
The Weekly Standard is reporting the White House Cover-up began almost before the smoke cleared in their piece The Benghazi Talking Points:
According to the House report, these alerts were circulated widely inside the government, including at the highest levels. The fighting in Benghazi continued for another several hours, so top Obama administration officials were told even as the fighting was taking place that U.S. diplomats and intelligence operatives were likely being attacked by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists. A cable sent the following day, September 12, by the CIA station chief in Libya, reported that eyewitnesses confirmed the participation of Islamic militants and made clear that U.S. facilities in Benghazi had come under terrorist attack. It was this fact, along with several others, that top Obama officials would work so hard to obscure.
Since the Obama administration was not about to tell the truth, the spin doctors needed a little time. they needed to feed the public something .. Someone thought of the video.
Buried among the millions of videos posted on YouTube was the now famous Mohammed video. Virtually no one ever seen the damned thing- When I first heard about it and took a look for myself the thing had around 300 views, if I remember correctly. It was less than a 1000. That was after the story came out and everyone in world was looking for it.. Someone said it had a total of 17 views prior to the incident.. But the White House knew about it and went on an instant blame the video campaign,,
It’s as though they knew about it and were saving it for a propaganda emergency …
We don’t know where the video came from, or who actaully produced and paid for it. We know what the Obama administration has said, but they’ve lied about every other aspect of the Benghazi affair. In my opinion, that is something worth looking a little closer.
While the video was being used to for cover, the White House propaganda machine was going full force– and according to the the weekly Standards Article.. and from the evidence below, the truth was the first thing get dropped from the taking points
Doug Ross put together a very detailed timeline in a spreadsheet type format, it gives readers a complete overview starting with all the requests for additional security and all the denials and includes many verifiable facts that members of the Obama Administarion, including Hillary Clinton have lied about, sometimes under oath
t is now clear to me that:
a) Hillary Clinton lied under oath to Congress.
b) Barack Obama went to sleep knowing that a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans were under terrorist attack.
c) Barack Obama awoke refreshed the next day to begin fundraising.
d) The entire Executive Branch lied repeatedly to the American people to save Obama’s chances for reelection.
Could someone drag John Boehner out of whatever bar he’s in, wake him up, and let him know: There is more than enough material for impeachment proceedings to begin and criminal charges levied against Hillary Clinton.

Ross is right, but I’ll take it a step farther,
As soon as you factor in the the fact that someone at the State Department hired the Martyrs Brigade for security you have gross incompetence… When you consider that the organization’s Facebook page confirmed they were directly tied to Al Qaeda it goes past incompetence– the first thing a 14 year old who wants to check out the new girl in class does is look at her Facebook page.. Yet apparently we’re supposed to believe well paid, highly trained intelligence people with a lot of experience didn’t bother.
The White House went directly into cover up mode – That investigation they talked about early on– the only thing they were investigating was the best way to cover their asses
It stinks of Treason..
At leas one Democrat is will to concede something is wrong
