Where is the outrage over president’s inaction?

The American people should be outraged at the liberal media — CBS, NBC, MSNBC — for letting 11 months go by without insisting that President Barack Obama tell the nation where he was the night of Sept. 11, 2012, when armed terrorists attacked the American Consulate in Benghazi. Obama has the audacity to refer to Benghazi as a “phony scandal.”

The House Oversight Committee released documents which stated that on the day of the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Sept. 11, 2012, the White House Situation Room started receiving emails about 1 p.m. that stated the mission was under hostile surveillance. The only response: The Pentagon sent a drone armed with a video camera so that everyone in Washington could see what transpired in real time as it happened — the White House, State Department, Pentagon and the CIA.

The drone documents that there were no crowds protesting any video; however, at 4 p.m. Washington received an email from the Benghazi Mission stating it was under military-style attack. The subject of the email: “U.S. Diplomat Mission in Benghazi under attack.” The email stated that “The Regional Security Officer reports the diplomatic mission is under attack. Embassy Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots, explosions have been heard as well.”

What was our bystander-in-chief Obama doing? Nothing. He claims he wasn’t in the Situation Room, but that his staff was keeping him apprised of what was transpiring! If Obama isn’t lying about not being in the Situation Room, then why didn’t he order a rescue attempt for Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans? Remember, a drone was overhead in Benghazi feeding live video to all of them in real time, showing a military-style attack!

On Sept. 12, 2012, Obama and Secretary of State Clinton lied to the American people from the Rose Garden when they stated, “We don’t have all the information; the information is still sketchy. It’s confusing.” That was a lie — we now have that live video documentation which they watched, but did nothing!

Ambassador Chris Stevens was murdered along with three other Americans. If you are not outraged by Obama’s inaction, what will it take?

    Robert: I was looking at the infowars site today (the one which has absolutely no affiliation with andrew what so ever). I was astounded by the "stories" they were featuring! Well more than the stories, but where the "stories" were coming from such as blogs and message boards, the previously mentioned "news bureaus" which are just blogs or collection sites of fringe element beliefs acting as a legitimate news sources.

    I mean just totally corrupted, disingenuous, and phoney efforts that just manufacture conspiratorial information that are lapped up like the aspartame laced sodas CTs drink all day long when writing and responding to their latest. I can see people who don't agree with the President and say so and that's fine and I encourage it, but the CTs just make stuff up. Just make stuff up. If people are to be outraged, maybe they should look at where they get their "news".

    Even Fox is better than that, and they're terrible. At least they are honest.

    In the LTE section, LNS reserves the right to edit,delete,etc. From my own experience, I asked that one of my LTEs be deleted, since I was ripping someone who just moved in across the street, and I was replying to his complaints.The person I spoke to at LNS obliged.but also mentioned that they saw nothing wrong with my LTE and that the person I spoke with. set my letters aside,pending ok to print. it should be known that LNS does NOT reword your statements: they delete them if there is a problem.BTW, Mike, you, or I think it was you, mentioned a church in Lockeford some time ago, and I don't doubt for a minute that we are familiar with each other. My first reaction was,"a fellow Lockeford boy". If we mentioned names and circumstances, I have no doubt that we were acquainted at least 4 decades ago.

    I'm not accusing anyone at LNS of any such offense, unless of course, it's true.
    Would it be so hard to do? Would it require that Simon be told of it? You see, I'm not quite sure what my comments were on that day or if I made any at all.

    Let us see...... you don't believe that one person @ LNS would or could modify a post.....but you believe that hundreds of workers could have cut, welded, placed, and packed tons of explosives in WTC 1, 2, and 7 without attracting any notice or comment from the 90+ percent of the individuals who worked there?

    Or that the government built 4 large missles (made to look like 767 and 757 aircraft) without testing them and that 75% of them worked flawlessly the first time they were used. And no one ever saw them before. And that the original passengers and crew "disappeared" without anyone blowing the whistle.

    Using your logic, yes I believe someone at LNS might have modified my unremembered comments and done so without my notice.

    Truth?

    andrew's attempt to shift the focus on to me regarding his serial attacks (made up entirely of conspiracy vapor as I've shown earlier) on the President and just about everybody else in or out of government, is a desperate move. "Where is the Outrage Over the President's inaction?" As with all of andrew's posts, we should ask "where, where is the evidence that is not a composite of unconnected sound bites, fabricated stories (again, as I've illustrated earlier), and lies that are part and parcel of a c.t. mode of operation. Long on allegation, very, very short on evidence, yet the c.t. expects us to believe the multitude of accusations that end up being totally without substance. Do any of "infowars" actually ever pan out and are found to be true? How many of alex jones (the radio show with a total listenership of 3 when I tune in for a laugh and the one that andrew is in no way affiliated with} gravely "news stories" ever end up being true?

    And here's the holy grail of CT: The accusations don't need to be true. They don't need evidence. They don't need legitimacy. And they don't require them because normal people laugh them off as the obsessive sum of the lunatic fringe. And this is what should be done. The few who remain fixated are the same ones who write it, or lacking the verbal capacity and the vocabulary, have no way to verify CT outlandish claims.

    So go back to your archive and find all the posts I've ever written that are contrary to yours (mine are the ones that are true and verifiable if that helps). List them. But maybe since you didn't respond to the analysis of CT I made @ 1729 on 8/14 other than to shift blame to me, my money is on your realization that within the thousands of plagiarized posts you've submitted here, almost every single one cannot be sustained under even the most mild scrutiny.

    Maybe as a "counterpoint" you could list all the things you think are true. Like you're vapor trails (clue: anyone can take a pic of a high flying Airbus, white out the airline name and registration number, add some brown stuff coming out the back), you're views on Lee Harvey Oswald's assassination of JFK would be a great read.
    Now it's going to be tough since you post everything that shows up on infowars, so maybe just a couple more other than the ones I've listed.

    So andrew,

    Seems andrew can't seem to keep the facts separate from the fanciful notions of world wide conspriracy (led by frmr. President George H. W. Bush).

    I never said that Marines guard consulates, I said they guard embassies.
    The specific composition of other personnel protection details varies by country and specific diplomatic needs and concerns.

    And I didn't even need a quote from, or to ask a Marine Corps Officer to know or state that. And if we carry your penniless rebuttal a little further, does this mean every Marine Corp Capt. knows everything about the Corps? Don't bother replying. I only looked here for old time's sake. You don't interest me anymore.

    Note: When andrew says "WE WERE THE FIRST TO BREAK THE STORY!", he means the story appeared on the alex jones website "infowars" or on alex jones' seldom listened to radio program whose name I don't recall but that's ok, I would only be their 3rd listener and I don't want to make his audience total jump.

    andrew has either stated or implied he works for either infowars or the alex jones show many times, yet no one, let me repeat, NO ONE, has has ever been able to find any proof anywhere (except from andrew) that he works there. andrew invited me on the show once, yet he still refused to (read: since he is not affiliated with them, could not book guests) provide evidence of any sort that he worked for either operation.

    infowars (and alex jones) stories are mostly made up of 1 or 2 person "news bureaus" who "break stories" of unbelievable imagination. These stories are picked up by other conspiracy websites and viola! you've got legitimacy. Another tactic is to get a mainline news service to pick up the story, publish a blurb and viola!, you've got legitimacy. Or a crackpot writes a letter to the editor..viola!, now your in the mainstream press. There are also a large collection of oddball stringers who post blogs that are picked up by other oddball stringers who give themselves fancy names that sound like real news organizations. They are not. They are just smarter conspiracy theorists, and of course there are so many knuckleheads that don't know the difference because they were brought up by limbaugh, hannity, levine, etc., they don't even understand the what they believe.

    andrew likes to cite government documents and speeches and news clips from mainstream sources. When he does this, he can ask questions like "The Library of Congress is a conspiracy web site?" (This is my favorite by the way). No, the Library of Congress is not a conspiracy website, but how you've edited, misapplied, and altered reports from real places is conspiracy theory. They will assemble a large collection of statements, by President Obama for instance, and then splice them together. They don't even bother to account for the rapid changes in clothes, graying hair, etc. which they can't edit out. But again, ct's don't care.

    So take andrew with a grain of salt. Apparently he's here to stay, ruining this cite for normal people.

    Definition of EMBASSY: 1. the residence or place of business of an ambassador. 2.an ambassador and his entourage collectively. 3.the position,business,or mission of an ambassador. 4.an important or official mission, duty, etc. especially one undertaken by an agent. In general,embassies are located in the capital city of a country. If definitions 2 or 3 are used, then it means that location does not matter. The business or mission could be carried out in any consulate, building,personnel carrier,etc.since the ambassador and his entourage IS the the embassy regardless of location. Therefore, it is easy to interchange the words embassy, consulate, and diplomatic mission despite their different purposes. The embassy is the most important since it deals with peacekeeping issues, while the consulate deals with trade, work, and visa issues. There may be 1 or more consulates in any city. Regarding your statement about Obama secretly supplying arms to AlQaeda,and other affiliated terrorist groups, if you are saying that you want to see that stop, then I totally agree with you,but, a I've already stated, this particular group the US is supporting has been supported by presidents that go back as far as Reagan and possibly Carter.The director of the National Security Agency under Ronald Reagan, Lt.Gen.William Odom noted: Because the US itself has a long record of supporting terrorists and using terrorist tactics,the slogans of today's war on terrorism merely makes the US look hypocritical to the rest of the world.Odom also said; By any measure,the US has long used terrorism. In 78-79, the senate was trying to pass a law against international terrorism: in every version they produced, the lawyers said the US would be in violation. Some make a big deal about the loss of 4 lives in this latest embassy(Ambassador Chris Stevens and 6 State Dept. officials,definition 2)attack. Iwould be a lot more worried about the latest claim that as many as 400 missles were stolen from the US during this time and that according to some, could be used to shoot down aircraft. Fill me in on what I missed,Andrew.Your point was too vague for short replies.

    Mason, The "EMBASSY" was and still is located in Tripoli. You clearly missed my point. F.Y.I. Providing ample evidence of the CIA Annex in Benghazi is hardly necessary considering WE WERE THE FIRST TO BREAK THE STORY! (10 months ago I might add) ROFLMAO

    Joe, I already do, whenever I want. I'm 70 miles away from Canada, 30 miles from Washington, and 40 miles from Montana. I know the latter are in the US, but they are far removed from anything you (and many others) could ever imagine politically and geographically.

    As far as Mike's "great" 3:29 post... Marines were not even posted to the consulate in Benghazi, unlike the embassy in the capital, Tripoli. At least according to Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Kendra Motz .

    But just think - your opponents are Boris Badenov and Natasha Fatale - likely the most inept Russian agents ever (at least in the cartoon world).

And answer me this: What is America? Answer: a bunch of turds heading toward the big whirly. You see? I am a realist, not controlled by any party, just trying to do right by all.

Is this still America?

    Yup; and don't forget the February 17 martyrs brigades' Al qaeda armbands . They got their name from a terrorist attack on that date from the 2006 Italian embassy attack. The points are moot.The families of those killed in the other 44 attacks deserve to know the truth also,don't you think? You don't? really?Why not? Do you think the US government was honorable before Obama? If anyone answered yes to the last question, then I've got some oceanfront property in Idaho I'll sell you.Speaking of clandestine, most of the occupants of the embassy were clandestine CIA agents. So,unarmed,Al qaeda sympathizers who were the host country's security guard were attacked. Cool. Good thinking on Obama and Clinton's part.Joe ;reread my earlier post and notice that only 125 OUT OF 294 sites are guarded by USMC.Also reread Mike's 3:29 pm Sat.8/10/12 post.

    Liberal darling, Hillarry Clinton, made sure there were NO Marines at the Benfhazi consulate.The Lybian security force hired to protect the consulate had NO ammunition. The facility had been attacked on several occasions, even so, the Obama administration took no proactive steps to keep Americans safe, even on the anniversary of 9-11-2001. Our potus apparently thought it would draw too much attention to their clandestine smuggling operations set up to arm the factions, including Al Qaeda, bent on overthrowing the Syrian government. Americans died because Obama wanted the Syrian government toppled and replaced with the Muislim Brotherhood. Worked out well in Egypt, eh?
    And, to this day, nobody in the Obama administration will "truth up". Americans deserve to know. The families of the murdered Americans deserve to know.

    When push comes to shove, the Marines at any embassy could blunt any sort of assault by mowing down hundreds of attackers. The problem comes up when there are more than hundreds of attackers. Once they breech the outer security measures (and host countries are totally responsible for embassy security outside the gates), it's just time before they get in. Even if the Marines (who are very well trained for this) cut down a thousand attackers, given enough bodies, they will get inside any diplomatic facility.

    Once they get in, given a stout Marine Corps response, and enough room to walk over the bodies of their buddies, they aren't going to have diplomacy in mind. If the Marines had resisted the attacks on our embassy in Tehran in 1979, there wouldn't have been hostages for 440 days because they would have killed everyone in the embassy.

    Thank you for pointing out that host nations are responsible (by diplomatic contract) to protect diplomats. Diplomats travel from point to point with small, but well armed security because decent countries provide the required security. Traveling with a small army from point to point within a host country is just not logistically or politically possible.

    Well, any amount of reason is useless with those on the right when a democrat holds the White House. This is why they chose an elephant to be their mascot: Thick skulls, poor vision, and the ability to bully things in their way when they don't get what they want. Think about it.

    Who guards our embassies,consulates, and diplomatic missions? The answer: US marines with a classification of E-2 to E-8 guard 125 out of 294 of these. Private contractors also guard and like the marines, must meet stringent standards.(NOTE)They primarily guard entrances and lobbies(internal security)and are trained to react to terrorism. They assist internally and externally if under attack. Under international law, the host country provides the main security. Obviously, in Middle-eastern countries, there are problems with security, due to many militant groups and their associations. Let's blame Obama for following international law, the same way that previous presidents have.

    We see over and over, the desperation of the right. This is the party (and this is definitely a poor name for this group) that was willing to put millions out of work in the automotive industry, collapse banks to put us into a depression, kick millions off of unemployment, arrest anyone with brown skin and an accent and deport them to Mexico, limit voting rights to all minorities (well, at least the ones who were registered Democrats or might register as a Democrat) including moving registered voters to republican rolls without permission (read:lie to them).

    If any registered republican voters could be depended on to turn off FOX, limbaugh, and hannity, and perhaps think for themselves, there would be a mass exodus from this dying anti-American collective.

    Knowing this, republicans seek to blame every ill (many initiated by the GWB administration) on Democrats and particularly on President Obama. The GOP is the whinny, tantrum-throwing-in-the-store-because-they-can't-have-this-toy en mass. How far has a once great party fallen down the hole?

    -Speaking of deaths...

    Media Ignores Increased Deaths, Casualties in Afghanistan Under Obama

    Under former President George W. Bush, 575 American soldiers died and fewer than 3,000 were wounded in Afghanistan. This means under Obama, at least 1,405 soldiers have died and nearly 15,000 additional soldiers have been wounded, which means 70% of the deaths and nearly 80% of the injuries in Afghanistan have occurred under Obama’s watch.

    "Ben Ghazi"

    The feigning of outrage continues...

    This offering from another unfortunate FOXNEWS addict.

    Chronic Irritable Dysphoria.

    Yup, that's my diagnosis.

    Shut off your cable tv and internet service, and for all of your news needs, subscribe to the LNS.

    Yup, that's my recommendation.

    I'm being sincere.

    For those interested; keyword US embassies or www.usembassy.gov/ and the official list of US Dept.of State websites of US embassies,consulates,and diplomatic missions appear.Africa has 52, Americas have 57, East Asia and Pacific have 49, Europe and Eurasia have 84, Middle East and North Africa have 28, and Central and South Asia have 24. That is a total of 294 sites that need defending. It was probably wise to close those that have been threatened lately. Another"scandal" in process?

    My point is exactly is what Mike and Joanne have already stated. Foreign embassies on foreign soil, especially in war torn regions are a dangerous place to be.I would not go there under any circumstances. Are those that do exceptionally brave or unrealistically hopeful that their mission of lasting peace will be successful? Check out how Krauthammer whitewashed GW Bush's record of embassies attacked under his watch alone. (somewhere between 7 and 13 depending on the source.) Few if any were widely publicized and turned into a scandal, not to mention the other 30 plus under various presidents.Now check out the websites that have been supplied to you Mr. Kinderman, and you will find dates and details of these embassy attacks;all 44 of them in 52 years. Where was the outrage then? Were these all scandals also?

    The February 17th Martyrs Brigade was paid by Obama's State Department to protect the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

    The "point," as one commenter demanded to know, is that right-wingers are PO'd that Osama bin Laden was taken down under the Obama Administration and Obama declared al Qaeda had been decimated.

    OH NO!! declared the right. Look at this....al Qaeda is alive and well and burning down our embassies. Obama is an idiot. Just look...he was wrong about al Qaeda - they are still attacking us!!!!

    The point is that among the number of embassy attacks (excluding the taking of hostages at the US Embassy compound in Iran), none have hardly been publicized, let alone turned into a "scandal."

    The death toll has been huge, especially under George Walker Bush:

    HHhhmmmmm...I believe that by agreement, diplomatic missions (properties) rely on local military, police, or militia to provide security. Are there any recent episodes where diplomatic security personnel have had to actually use weapons to repel an attack and/or call in additional American assets to assist?

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
