Benghazi isn’t going away

McCain on Benghazi:

this is either a massive cover-up or gross incompetence on the part of the president of the United States. There were ample warnings ahead of time. There was two attacks on our consulate in Benghazi, one in April and one in June. The British ambassador, there was an attempt to assassinate him in Benghazi. The British consulate was closed. The Red Cross left. From our Lt. Col. Woods, there was request after request for security. Why didn’t the president of the United States know about what was happening in the deteriorating situation in Benghazi as al Qaeda-affiliated groups moved in? Then, of course, a seven hour firefight. A seven hour fight, and we’ve got forces all over that region. On September 11th, why didn’t we have forces on alert? Why couldn’t we get people there? A couple of these brave Americans were murdered in the last hour or so.

And then, the massive cover-up – does the President really think that we don’t know that he came out for days and days afterwards saying that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video? By the way, Hugh, one thing about continuous flow of information? He gave us everything after they got bin Laden, right, including betraying people’s very lives in their eagerness to give us all the details. There was surveillance cameras throughout the consulate in Benghazi. So the FBI finally got in there. Do you know where those recordings are kept now?…

Top secret. Is that a flow of info? Why, Mr. President, did you send out Susan Rice, your ambassador, to say that this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by the hateful video? Why did you, Mr. President, on Letterman, why did you, to the United Nations, say that same thing when everybody knew that was wrong? That was absolutely false. So the president of the United States either out of stupidity or willing desire to deceive the American people continued this absolute falsehood about a spontaneous demonstration…

he keeps saying they’re going to have an investigation? You don’t need an investigation to know that the president of the United States told people absolute falsehoods when he continued to say this was a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video. There was nothing, nothing that showed that. If I sound angry to you, I knew Chris Stevens. I knew him well. I was in Benghazi with him during the fighting. I was in Tripoli with him at the time of elections. The last message he sent out, Hugh, was a request for, and his concern about the lack of security at the consulate in Benghazi…

I promise you as the person who would be the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, I will not rest. And I will not rest, because the American people cannot be deceived like this.

Roger Simon is appealing to knowledgable people to contact PJ media before election day. With regard to cover-up or incompetence, John McCain (as fired up as we’ve ever heard him) is wrong. It’s not either-or, it’s both-and. The Jarrett-Axelrod-Obama administration both dithered and covered up. Disgraceful behavior, made even worse by treating the American people as gullible children, and made even worse than that by the complicity of the corrupt media establishment.

    “The heroes on the ground called for help – Obama did nothing.
    It Was Dereliction of Duty”

    “Sean Hannity was debating liberal Juan Williams Tuesday on the Benghazi massacre. Hannity revealed this on the audio tapes of Tyrone Woods begging for air support on 9-11,
    “My sources tell me they’re pretty damning, Juan. They’re begging for help.Tyrone Woods was screaming for air support and Barack Obama did nothing.
    Then he lied about it.

    Hannity later said there are three tapes the Obama administration is holding onto including audio of Tyrone Woods begging for air support.”

    If these audios are played publicly, I believe the political damage to obama will be devastating. People that aren’t paying attention to this story will be outraged.
