Leading From Behind – The “What Difference Does It Make” Version

Leave it to the foreign press to actually do the heavy lifting of investigative journalism in regards to this current Administration. A Citizens Commission on Benghazi comprised of top military officers and CIA insiders has recently released a report on their findings that are strangely absent from our MSM, and their findings are interesting to say the least:

‘The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,’ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

So our government knowingly allowed arm shipments to come in to the country and instead going to the Gaddafi government as intended, they were allowed to fall into the hands of the Islamist opposition. And now these weapons have found their way to Syria. Has anyone ever read this account before? In addition, Gaddafi was reportedly willing to broker a peace deal and abdicate power, but evidently our “Nobel Peace Prize” winning President chose not to pursue any deal. Again, has that ever been reported by our press?

The report goes on to state that military help for our Ambassador was just an hour away in Italy  – another account that I don’t remember reading in our press. The failure at Benghazi is epic, it needs to be more responsibly investigated, and it should preclude Hillary from ever being POTUS. When that 3 am call came in, she was AWOL.

      I might add the uncomfortable comment that “switching sides” in a war and aiding the enemy used to brand one as being a traitor followed by a pretty speedy execution rather than being held up or defended as some kind of brilliant foreign affairs strategist. We truly need to start calling things what they are. The progressives are counting on our children not knowing they are communists.

      Excellent movie. I can’t believe I’ve never seen it before.

        I think the most interesting single thing about this movie is that I already knew about 90% of what it exposed, but this was the first time this information was examined and collated to form a coherent narrative. I also realized that this movie was really pretty mild, as it started with the Clinton presidency, and overlooked the sordid history of the Clintons, particularly Hillary, about how they got to the White House in the first place. It also skimmed over the foreign campaign finance dealings, understandable as no movie could last several hours, and completely ignored the firewall set up by a Clinton appointee to protect Clinton from examination of foreign influence in our elections—-the firewall that kept different intelligence agencies from communicating with each other, leading to the intelligence defects contributing to 9/11. Perhaps the movie makers made the decision to stick to what was only about Hillary, as these were Billary events.

        If any single act of Hillary Clinton had received the media attention given to the fact that a few Texas Air National Guard payroll records from 40 years past were not found, we would not be considering her as a potential 2016 presidential candidate.


        I just sat and looked at that statement and realized it might not be true, given the total lack of concern in the RRL about things like honesty, competence or character. But even with that taken into consideration, I don’t believe, or want to believe, that the mainstream American citizen would be blase about the kinds, and degrees, of the various antics of Hillary Clinton. That makes me think that the only reason this mainstream American demographic has any use for her whatsoever is directly credited to the Complicit Agenda Media—-Complicit in covering up whatever might hurt the Left, in this case Hillary, and Agenda referring to the agenda of getting and retaining radical Leftist control in this country.

        Mr. Spook, Sir, ; ) I have friends in the most interesting places. Please pass the movie along and let’s hope there is a sequel soon which includes 6 billion missing from the State Department (which we know wasn’t spent on security), the AWOL Secretary of State when the 3 a.m. call came in, dead Americans, lies and cover-up with zero accountability. You know, there’s just so much to work with and so little time.

    The best ad I can think of against a candidate Hillary would be a portion of her ad from 2008 about the 3AM phone call followed by a clip of her famous “what difference, at this point, does it make?”

    Another good one would be a simple exchange between two people, one of whom says, “I just can’t wait for Hillary to be President”, and the other who responds, “what are some of her accomplishments that qualify her to be President?” — followed by about 10 or 15 seconds of dead air space.

    Actually, come to think of it, there are literally dozens of potentially devastating ads that are not even personal attack ads. Now, getting the agenda media to actually run the ads — well, that might be a problem.

    The progressive noise machine is doing their best to marginalize this report, first by personally attacking the authors, no surprise, and then by discrediting the findings in a transparent effort to shield their boy wonder. The problem is that, other progressives are validating this report and using it as a launch pad to attack the military complex and tie in other oversights by the …. wait for it …… Bush administration:


    So who to believe? Hmmmmmmmm. It’s perplexing.
