How the Cairo video became the Benghazi video
by LAWRENCE SELLIN, PHD May 8, 2014
Benghazi _ obama _ clinton L
In his now infamous September 14, 2012 email, Benjamin Rhodes, Deputy National Security Advisor for Strategic Communications and Speechwriting, had it exactly backwards. The September 11, 2012 attacks on the Cairo embassy and the Benghazi consulate were rooted in a broad failure of policy, not an internet video, which was later politically transformed by the Obama Administration from a pretext to the cause of the attacks.

Cairo, Egypt—Seems that all roads go through Russia now, after the United States began abandoning Egypt all because the new government refuses to submit to the wishes of the White House and the further empowerment of extremists in Egypt. Egyptian-Russian relations witnessed major developments as a delegation of Egyptians visited Russia to invite President Vladimir Putin to join Egypt as a partner and strategic ally.
Fact or Fiction? ….. “Perhaps Mr. Thor was also curious of the unexplained undercurrents in the past five years. President Obama rushes to Cairo to give his first major speech as President. He invites, insists, the Muslim Brotherhood attend. Egypt subsequently becomes a hot bed and an undeclared coup with the Brotherhood a major player.”

The Secret Document That Set Obama’s Middle East Policy

“We have to confront is violent extremism in all of its forms.… America is not — and never will be — at war with Islam. We will, however, relentlessly confront violent extremists who pose a grave threat to our security — because we reject the same thing that people of all faiths reject: the killing of innocent men, women, and children. And it is my first duty as president to protect the American people.” –President Barack Obama, Cairo, June 2009
Mosque Makeovers With Your Tax Dollars
A Channel 2 Action News investigation found that the State Department is sending millions of dollars to save mosques overseas.
This investment has received criticism as the United States makes an effort to slash nearly $4 trillion in government spending. Plenty of outrage following the announcement made Thursday afternoon by a government commission that suggested huge cuts to the budget, including eliminating the interest education for home mortgage.
This juxtaposed with United States investing millions to refurbish mosques as a good-will effort in Muslim countries has upset many taxpayer groups.
Well, that’s because they don’t have to hide. One of the scum who is believed to have masterminded the 9-11-12 attack in Libya that killed four Americans isn’t even hiding his love of decadent Western fruity frappes. Another just got released. So yeah, there’s no place to hide. Except, at this point, the entire planet. To date, the Obama government has not retaliated against anyone anywhere for the Benghazi attack.

Dereliction – Noun.
deliberate, conscious, or willful neglect (esp. in the phrase dereliction of duty)
the act of abandoning or deserting or the state of being abandoned or deserted
The last few weeks President Barack Obama and his administration have been derelict in their duty to this country. The 9-11 invasion of the Embassy in Cairo,
Egypt, the well planned attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the protests against other embassies in the Middle East have been blamed on a video on YouTube that no one has ever seen.
according to a report Tuesday by Egypt Independent, citing a secret letter obtained by Al-Masry Al-Youm.
Devvy Kidd — The mess in Libya – Who built it? (“The impostor Secretary of State, Marxist Hillary Clinton, seemed stunned that mobs of Muslims in Libya would bite the hand that feeds it:”)
Instead, Barry has shown his usual inept “leadership” while pretending to be Commander in Chief.The impostor Secretary of State, Marxist Hillary Clinton, seemed stunned that mobs of Muslims in Libya would bite the hand that feeds it: ” “Many Americans are asking – indeed, I asked myself – how could this happen?… How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?” How? You helped build the mess.Her Ladyship also feels the need to mouth more politically correct vomit:
On 9/11, in response to an anti-Islam video that went viral on YouTube last week, Obama’s Egyptian embassy released a statement deploring “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims— as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” This is beyond imagination:
On 9/11, the anniversary of the attacks by radical Islamists on our nation, Islamic protestors compromised the U.S. embassy in Cairo, tearing the American flag to shreds to cries of “We are Usama!” and the Obama administrationresponds that our concern needs to be the “hurt feelings” of
Muslims.The administration’s response in Libya was not much better, placing condemnation of “denigrating religious beliefs” over outrage at the killing of our ambassador and other diplomatic staff there. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a statement saying that while the United States “deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others there is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”Finally, on Wednesday morning, Obama condemned “the outrageous attack.”

Since our beloved media has chosen to go wall-to-wall with their absurd “gaffy-horserace-optics” meta narrative, might they also get the vapors over what our sitting Commander-in-Chief is up to tonight?
BEGIN TRANSCRIPTRUSH: Obama’s first instinct was to sympathize with the attackers. And when I say Obama, I’m talking about the embassy, Embassy Cairo. You can’t separate Barack Obama from any of our embassies. He staffs them. They have like-minded thinkers in there. Barack Obama’s in charge of the Foreign Service, he and Hillary Clinton.
Their first instinct was to sympathize with the attackers with that statement. Romney was dead right pointing that out. First instinct, sympathize with the attackers. Where does that come from? It comes from, just like Dinesh D’Souza says, it comes from the idea that Obama thinks this country has been too big for its britches for too long and it’s time this country finds out what it has been like to be victimized by this country in the rest of the world.It’s time this country finds out what it’s like to be Egypt and have a big, bad United States breathing down your neck.
That’s what Obama is. That’s where he’s coming from. It’s true foreign policy; it’s true economically. Barack Obama doesn’t think this country should be number one. If it were number 35 it’d be fine with him. We haven’t deserved to be number one.
Keep in mind these are the same protesters Obama backed during the Arab Spring uprising against Mubarak.Via CNN: Angry protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and hauled down its American flags, replacing them with black flags with Islamic emblems.
The incident prompted U.S. security guards to fire off a volley of warning shots as a large crowd gathered outside, apparently upset about the production of a Dutch film thought to insult the Prophet Mohammed, said CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene. An embassy operator told CNN that the facility had been cleared of diplomatic personnel earlier Tuesday, ahead of the apparent threat, while Egyptian riot police were called to help secure the embassy walls.Update: More pictures………………….

The English translation of a section of the Sky News report, circled in red in the video, references that members of the Muslim Brotherhood “crucified” dissidents “naked on trees in front of the presidential palace.”
(“President Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim!”) Is Barack Obama the “Enemy from Within”? Yes, Domestically And Globally!
Today’s announcement that Hosni Mubarak is now gravely ill and apparently on his death-bed prompted me to remember the events of last year. I remember vividly turning on Fox News around 5:30am, clutching my cup of French vanilla/breakfast blend coffee.
I was greeted by an incredible scene– thousands of Egyptians in the streets, rioting/protesting. Four or five hours later, I also recall the White House held a briefing with Robert Gibbs (the then-Press Secretary). I honestly cannot remember which reporter asked him the question, but it went along these lines: Mr. Gibbs, can you tell us who or what group is behind these protest in Cairo? The response was simply, “No.” Next question, please.

According to officials, Daniel Whitaker, 49, drove his vehicle to the top of the steps and then stepped out wearing a flag. He then proceeded to erect a wooden cross and stood next to it with a blue staff.
Notorious human rights abusers draw inspiration from US authorities
Paul Joseph Watson
Monday, November 21, 2011
Egypt’s infamous state security apparatus, notorious for spying on political activists and torturing dissidents, has renamed itself “homeland security,” presumably in homage to its American namesake, which has also been used as a tool of political repression.
Egypts Secret Police Renames Itself Homeland Security egypt beating
As part of the re-branding of dictatorship in Egypt, the same security force implicated in the imprisonment and torture of anti-Mubarak activists is busy reorganizing itself while maintaining intimidation and spying campaigns targeted against parliamentary candidates by bugging phone calls and harassing prominent critics of the ruling military regime’s bloody crackdown on protesters.
Fresh off the back of bombing Libya under the guise of “humanitarian intervention” while calling on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down over mistreatment of protesters, the Obama administration has taken a noticeably different approach to Egypt’s brutal military junta that is now busy torturing and killing demonstrators on the streets of Cairo.
Prison Planet.com » American Police Are So Brutal that the Egyptian Military Is Justifying Its Murder of Tahrir Square Protesters By Pointing to the Crackdown on Occupy Wall Street
Egyptian Military Points to American Police Brutality in Justifying Murder of Tahrir Square Protesters
And America’s response towards the peaceful Occupy protesters has been so brutal that now the Egyptian military is justifying its murder of protesters in Tahrir Square by saying they are just following the American example. As Gawker notes:
America’s “Arab Deception”
America’s “Arab Deception”: “As Adolf Hitler noted, “all propaganda has to be popular and has to accommodate itself to the comprehension of the least intelligent of those whom it seeks to reach.” Certainly the writers handing US President Barack Obama his “Middle East speech” had a particularly ignorant audience in mind. Holding to the narrative that the “Arab Spring” uprising were spontaneous Obama would parrot, “It is not America that put people into the streets of Tunis and Cairo — it was the people themselves who launched these movements, and must determine their outcome.”
However, the “Arab Spring” was entirely engineered, prepared for, activists trained, funded, and equipped by the United States, years in advance, based on successes and experience garnered from decades of extraterritorial meddling. In particular, a coalition between the US State Department, NGOs, corporations, and organizations entirely contrived for the sole purpose of fomenting unrest in foreign nations, began as early as 2008 preparing for what is now unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.”
Staff investigators with the House and Senate intelligence committees say they are probing the domestic security threat posed by the radical Muslim Brotherhood and, specifically, whether Brotherhood operatives have penetrated the U.S. government.
As the Muslim Brotherhood threatens to effectively replace Egypt’s secular, pro-Western regime, the tentacles of its worldwide jihadist movement have reached deep into the Muslim community in America. Shockingly, federal court documents reveal that virtually every major Muslim organization in America is a front group for the Brotherhood.
They also show that its U.S. network has raised millions of dollars for Hamas, al-Qaida and other terrorist groups.”The most prominent Islamic organizations in the United States are all controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood,” said FBI veteran John Guandolo, who worked several Brotherhood-related terror cases out of the bureau’s Washington field office as a special agent after 9/11.
Read the inside story about plans to put America under Shariah, in “Muslim Mafia.”While the FBI has cut off ties to some of the well-established organizations, many others continue to participate in outreach programs with the Homeland Security and Justice departments, the former special agent says.
Some of their leaders are even advising the government on how to respond to events in Egypt and elsewhere……………………….

An astute blogger has been putting the pieces together.
T. Monroe-Hamilton of The Noisy Room writes, “Google exec Wael Ghonim utilized Facebook to bring thousands into the streets and set himself up as a political martyr if need be. Youth groups along with Ghonim support ElBaradei and, by default, the Muslim Brotherhood. And who is financing such groups? Well, our old friend George Soros of course. He and ElBaradei both sit on the International Crises Group board of trustees.”
Call it Revolution 2.0. It’s what Google’s Wael Ghonim has named it, claiming their on-line tech-savvy ability to foment demonstrations was what ultimately toppled the Egyptian regime of Hosni Mubarak.
Cairo native and Google marketing exec Wael Ghonim helped organize Revolution 2.0, the anti-Mubarak protests, through “We are All Khaled Said”, the Facebook page that drew more than 70,000 friends.
Monroe-Hamilton observes, “The Egyptian and Tunisian revolutions did not just spontaneously erupt. No …they are well planned, drawn out, militant efforts to bring about revolutionary change on a global scale. This will be done using the Internet and the young, who will be manipulated into revolt, with either legitimate causes, manufactured wrongs or a combination of both. Enter The Alliance for Youth Movements (AYM).”
Just how influential were websites Facebook and Twitter in the rebellion? At least one skeptic argues not so much.

The Tale of the Pale Horseman

OK, this is weird…
Over at The Blaze, you’ll find this video that some say shows a pale horseman riding through the crowd.
When an eerie, pale-green image appeared in a recent Euronews report on the Egyptian unrest, some bloggers asked an interesting question: “Is this the Fourth Horseman of the Apocalypse?” Foxnation.com, a news aggregation division of Fox, picked up on the story and repeated the same question. But while video does show something odd, the way some covered the story is overshadowing the story itself. First the video (the anomaly occurs at about 1:20):
Here’s the vid:
What do YOU think?
With much righteous indignation, reporters and revolutionaries around the world asked President Mubarak: How Dare You Defy the World!
You must leave, NOW, they shouted. It is not your country any more. You are unwanted. You are a liability. Time for you to go.
It is they, the outsiders, the media and the US President, that called for Mubarak’s immediate resignation. They expected him to leave, later to announce his resignation and departure. When he refused to do so, they became furious, upset he disobeyed their orders.
As much as I love America, it hurts me to recognize “American arrogance.” We chose a leader, President Barack Hussein Obama. Although I did not vote for him, he…..

You need to understand, and let me be perfectly clear about it, that the two situation are completely different.Hosni Mubarak is eighty two years old, dying of cancer and has always believed himself an ally. He has done more to support and assist Israel, the only true stable and democratic government in the Middle East as much as I hate to admit the fact, than any other leader in the region. So, to summarize he’s old,sick, and ally and I can blind side him easily.Iran, on the other hand, has a president who is certifiably crazy, healthy, brutal and will soon have nuclear missles. If I stand up to that guy he’s likely to laugh at me or suggest I go do indecent things with a goat. So he is young, healthy, an enemy and he could belttle me and heap scorn upon me.Based on the careful political and diplomatic calculus involved I have decided that my already bruised ego cannot stand further abuse.
So I have drawn a line in the sand for Mubarak and have decided to pound sand for Mahmoud, may blessings and peace be upon him, because there’s no way he’ll take me seriously.In closing, I have asked three medicine men, two voodoo pacticioners and my dear friend, Reverend wright, to lead us in a dance, the killing of a chicken and a racist diatribe to secure upon me the blessing of the Great Whoever or Whatever you think may be guiding me.Good Night”

As the cliche goes, there are no coincidences in politics. Obama fundraiser group Code Pink just happened to have arrived in Cairo last week for the group’s ninth visit there in two years as part of its campaign to undermine the Mubarak government and help Hamas, the terrorist group that controls Gaza.Code Pink and the media are trying to portray the leftist group’s ‘sudden’ appearance in Cairo Wednesday as an act of courageous support for a democratic revolution. Nothing could be further from the truth.Code Pink protests the Mubarak government in Tahrir Square, Cairo, Egypt.
February 2, 2011.Code Pink has a well-documented history of working to overthrow American allies while propping up anti-American leftist governments and terrorist regimes.In fact, the group was founded in late 2002 to help keep the socialist Iraqi government of Saddam Hussein in power.

A national television personality and best-selling author has asserted that the possibility exists in America for an uprising similar to that of Egypt’s to occur, and it’s all because of Obamacare. Appearing on last Friday’s Fox Business Network program Follow the Money, Dr. Keith Ablow weighed in when he was asked if there could be a parallel between the Egypt uprising and anything similar happening in the US. According to the good doctor, there already are parallels between Egypt and the US after the passing of Obamacare. Chief among them is the destruction of the autonomy of the American individual, and Ablow also thinks that the Individual Mandate of Obamacare may just be sowing the “seeds of that kind of oppression” in America.Excerpt Read more at examiner.com …

A new ‘transitional’ government was formed, but the protests continued demanding a totally new government without the relics of the previous tyranny.
