With the exception of Jake Tapper at ABC News and Sheryl Atkinson at CBS News, the so called “Big Three” have been near silent on the assassination of a U.S. Ambassador and his intelligence officer. You read that correctly, I said assassination. This was no spontaneous attack. It wasn’t a protest. It most certainly wasn’t about a YouTube video. This was a hit.
I earlier posited the theory that Ambassador Stevens was to be used as a bargaining chip to release the Blind Sheik. He was much more than that. It is now coming to light that Chris Stevens, U.S. Ambassador to Libya was under direction from Barack Obama, arming a sect of Al Qaeda known as Ansar Al-Sharia.
On September 27th of last year, The White House confirmed 20,000 SA-24 Soviet made surface to air missiles went “missing” in Libya. These are equivalent to U.S. made Stinger Missiles and are capable of bringing down an airliner, or a CH-47 Chinook helicopter carrying 22 Navy SeALs in Afghanistan. As of this Saturday’s morning shows, ABC spent 52 seconds on Benghazi, CBS had 25 seconds. NBC failed to mention it at all.
George W. Bush was given a President’s Daily Brief titled “bin Laden determined to strike in the U.S.” on August 6th 2001. No actionable intelligence. No specific targets. All we heard from the press was how Bush was negligent in not stopping the attacks or worse yet, allowed them to occur. After the attacks, Bush was excoriated by the media for not kicking children out of the way to singlehandedly stop the ongoing terrorist act, instead finishing the reading of “My Pet Goat” as to not frighten the kids. He didn’t even go to Vegas afterwards! But I digress.
How often have we heard “The Sixteen Words” in reference to Saddam Hussein trying to acquire uranium from Niger? The press (and Hollywood) was all over this one. Tag line being “Bush lied, people died”.
This was a line from the President’s 2003 State of the Union speech, which was later proven accurate by British intelligence, saying the line “The British government has learned that Saddam Hussein recently sought significant quantities of uranium from Africa” was “well founded”. Yet all we heard was “Bush lied, people died”. Facts be damned.
The press had such a deranged hatred for Bush that, for the most of them, they undermined foreign policy at every turn. Publishing the locations where CIA “black site” detention facilities were located, the way the NSA tracked terrorists’ financial holdings, and countries that were secretly helping America in the War on Terror, the media might as well have been renamed the Rosenberg Network/Times.
As Conservative Report Online’s own Wayne Dupree reported last month, Former Democratic pollster Pat Caddell said at the Accuracy In Media conference in September,
“I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.”
Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they had clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.
Caddell went on to say
“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this.” “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.”
I think Caddell is spot on. Look at the information that is out there a month later. We now know the administration lied about the events surrounding the attack.
Through leaked emails, we know that this was a purposeful, deliberate, and ongoing deception of the American people. We also know from a Jennifer Griffin report on Fox News’ program Special Report with Brett Baier that no less than three calls for aid went unanswered.
In an attack that lasted over seven hours, Special Forces at Sigonella Air Base in Southern Italy, about 480 miles from Benghazi could have been there in less than two. We also know that the SeALs there were lazing the mortar that was being fired at them. These professionals would not be “painting” a target for drones that were supposedly unarmed. To say so is an insult. Leon Panetta calling people that know better “Monday morning quarterbacks” for questioning this stupidity is also an insult.
None of these stories are being reported by the Network media. More importantly, questions surrounding these demonstrably false stories are not even being asked.
ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos did however make time for Daily Beast hack Andrew Sullivan to say anyone in the south that votes for Romney wants to reconstitute the Confederacy. “If Virginia and Florida go back to the Republicans, it’s the Confederacy. Entirely. You put a map of the Civil War over this electoral map, you’ve got the Civil War.”
So, obviously, the same tired narrative applies. Republicans are racist, there is no media bias, and Obama is the smartest President ever. To borrow a phrase from our esteemed Vice President, “malarkey.”
This is an ongoing distraction to keep us, the ever growing number of informed citizens, from focusing on finding out the truth. That is, Obama is a subversive puppet and is hell bent on destroying this country as founded from within.
