How many other words can you use to describe the Obama Regime? The failures are massive. But it is not just the failures that we look at. If we look behind the failures, to the not so obvious questions, the Obama Regime only gets worse.
What is the cost of these failures? Is it simply a wrecked economy and a diminished nation or is it even worse?
It is worse.
The greatest failure of the Obama Regime is the way they have killed those who are working to protect America.
Obama’s policies have been so far beyond wrong, they are criminal. To start with, the rules of engagement in Afghanistan do nothing but make American military personnel there targets. With no clear plan for victory, all Obama is doing is asking young Americans to go and die for him so he will not get blamed for losing Afghanistan (at least before the election).
And now there is Benghazi.
According to retired military officers who appeared on Fox News, their sources told them that Obama watched the attacks live in the White House. Not only did Obama not give orders to help those men under attack, someone in the White House gave an order for troops only a mile a way, who could have helped, to stand down. Given the way Obama acted towards our troops in peril, I have to wonder if he stood up and cheered when the compound was overrun!
The death of our Americans in Benghazi is criminal.
The story gets worse the more we hear about it. Obama knew immediately this was a terrorist attack. For two weeks, he and his regime instead went out and not only groveled before radical Islamists but attacked our First Amendment. He gave aid and comfort to the radical Islamists worldwide who want to deny freedom of speech and criminalize “Insulting Islam.”
Then the details slowly leaked out that this was not a short firefight. The former Navy Seals, who may have disobeyed orders to stand down and instead went to the aid of their fellow Americans, fought for seven hours before being killed. There was easily enough time to bring in reinforcements.
This story may even be worse.
There may have been reinforcements on scene that were denied permission to intervene. According to published reports, there were CIA personnel who had spotted the mortar crew that was attack the compound. This group was “painting” the mortar with a laser designator.
Why do you do that?
The answer is simple. You are identifying a target so it can be struck immediately by airpower.
Why were these guys designating a target if there was no air support available? The answer is simple. There was something there and someone denied it permission to fire and help our guys on the ground. According to a former Delta Force Operator on the blog site BlackFive, there are only two people who could have ordered a plane or an armed drone overhead not to fire. One was the Africom Commander, who has been mysteriously relieved of his command, and the other is the President.
Here is another failure to ask about. After the incident was over, and Ambassador Stevens had been drug through the streets, tortured and murdered, why wasn’t the compound secured?
This compound has been referred to as a Consulate. It is nothing of the kind. It was a CIA operations hub in Libya. In theory it was being used by the CIA to try and track down weapons that had been lost during the revolution against Muammar Qaddafi. According to other published reports it was a hub for the recruitment of jihadist fighters to go to Syria and to facilitate the transfer of weapons to the Syrian rebels.
Why wasn’t this compound immediately secured? For days it was left open. CNN employees came in to the site and found Chris Stevens’ diary. Other media members went to the site and found sensitive and possibly classified documents at the burned out compound.
The Obama Regime has failed completely. The whole Benghazi affair stinks to high heaven. One of the first things President Romney should do is direct the Justice Department to open a criminal investigation of this matter, present it to a grand jury and let American citizens decide what should be done with those who willingly let Americans die.
The Gig is up, He is to blame. He should not be re elected.
I believe if most folks could HEAR what has happened they would not re elect
however, we need to get the word out because the news will not say anything
negative about him.
Its past time to move, bring him down, he must pay for ALL he has done to the
United States. We lost 4 people, its sad but thats not all he has done.
We need to move NOW
Tea party members should show up at every Obama campaign stop with posters...
."Benghazi -- Tell the TRUTH"
We can do this; there is time!!
Other suggestions to compliment your "Tell the Truth" posters:
Obama lied; 4 Americans died in Benghazi!
Obama/Holder lied; 2 American law enforcement officers (Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jamie Zapata), plus several hundred Mexican citizens died!
The Senate Intelligence Committee is set to have hearings on this...November 15th, 9 days AFTER the election!
This entire mess is 100 times worse than Watergate ever was. At least nobody died in Watergate!
Yes, there is NO GOOD reason, political or other, for delaying this investigation and telling what we already know to
be TRUE! If Obummer had just told the TRUTH, there would be no need to cover up, now it's going on for 6 weeks!
To bloody H--L with his "politics"! He's as guilty as he says he's not! He has no right to be running for President
of a country he hates and has betrayed.
We will see just how much of a leader Romney will be as President after he is elected, I can't wait to see how this will come out in the media with Romney as commander and chief.
NO AMNESTY FOR OBAMA. NO AMNESTY FOR THE TRAITORS WHO ENABLED HIM.
Amen! Romney & new AG should intict him and his co-conspirators for high crimes, if not outright TREASON. There is NO WAY this was just incompetence - not when the security team in place was pulled, then requests for additional security denied, then no action taken when attack underway - orders even given to those who COULD help to "stand down." I would welcome a public execution of those found guilty of treason. LET THE FULL TRUTH COME OUT!
You are dreaming or delusional if you believe the Romney administration will go after anyone in the Obama administration for anything.
Judson, spot-on. But, it could be even worse than we think. Kevin DuJan of Hillbuzz.org has written a great piece about his theory that that the Benghazi massacre may actually have been orchestrated in advance by Obama, with the intention of having the savages kidnapping, but not killing, the staff at the consulate in Benghazi and then holding them while Obama would then release the Blind Sheik to the Egyptians, completely in secret, or "under the radar". Then, with great fanfare, a few days before the election, Obama was supposed to have "negotiated" the safe return of the American hostages from Benghazi, thus making him look like a Reagan-like hero, sailing in to an easy victory and a second term. But, things did not go as planned, and the savages did what savages do. All the Americans were killed, including two who were "not supposed to be there", but were there because they were selfless American patriots who were not about to stand around and let their fellow Americans be slaughtered by the savages. The Obama administration even had the fake "the video did it" story prepared in advance, which explains the cryptic/seemingly nonsensical press release from the American embassy in Egypt on the day of the attacks, several hours before the attack actually took place, blaming the ridiculous YouTube video for an "uprising" that was yet to occur:
Just as no quarter was given to our people in Libya, we should give no quarter to radical Islam. If the West is to survive this enemy must be crushed. Obama and his cronies and his willing accomplices in the press should be prosecuted for gross negligence and dereliction of duty, to start. Obama should be impeached and criminally prosecuted. This is his fault, and his alone. It may be too late for those brave Navy Seals and our ambassador but we can still get him. He needs to pay for his crimes against our nation. America needs to stand up and defeat this criminal "regime". King Obama needs to go...to jail. Semper Fidelis and God help America!
