Quoting: AC 5341
that's a good thread. If you happen to stop by Op, please share your thoughts.
I have from the beginning, and called it a willful act of appeasement.
They watched and did nothing and even ordered a stand down, because they knew the Muslim world was enraged over that video.
While the attack in Benghazi was a terrorist attack, planned in advance .. Both the SD and WH had advance intel, and requests for additional security BEFORE 9/11/12.
They ran with the story that it was related to the video, because it was an opportunity to give them a measure of justice and appeasement.
Had there have been a bloody intervention and rescue, the fear was that the Muslim rage would grow even more, and with an upcoming election that could not be allowed to happen.
They weighed the consequences well in advance, and stuck to their playbook.
To think that we "the west" can make peace with the Muslim world has only provided them opportunities they didn't have before... They have more power and influence now than ever before, and the current administration along with many in the government agencies and some in the DoD have made it happen.
Just like Qaddafi was driven into the hands of the "rebels" because he could not be directly targeted and killed.. The Benghazi attack was allowed to happen, while they knew how it would end.
This is way bigger than Obama, and people who are making this all about him are foolishly overlooking all of the other aspects and parties involved...
We have never been so vulnerable, and it didn't have to be this way...
If we can avoid any aggression on Iran, and get through January, perhaps some of the obstacles now in place can be removed... If not, then we have to deal with a possible worst case here...
More in December...
Seeing is believing.
