‘His Wish Is Not Being Met’: Benghazi Victim’s Mom On Denied Death Benefit

 

 

 

 

 

 

” In her first national TV interview, the mother of Benghazi victim Glen Doherty went “On The Record” to discuss her son’s death and the action she’s taking against the CIA, State Department, and his insurance company.

  Barbara Doherty told Greta Van Susteren that the first time she heard that Glen was in Libya was when she learned that he had died. Barbara said that her daughter broke the news to her.

“ It’s the wrong order,” she said of her son dying before her.

  When asked whether the government gave her any information on the day she learned of Glen’s death, Barbara said, “That day was just filled with crying and tears. If they told me anything, I don’t remember it. It was like that for two or three days […] looking back, you’re in a fog and you’re just told what to do, and you do it.”

  It was “well over a month” before then-FBI Director Robert Mueller called Barbara. She said that he apologized for not calling sooner and said it was because he couldn’t find her contact number.

“ I said, ‘You are the FBI,’ he said, ‘Yes,’” she told Van Susteren. “

In Case You Lost Count, This Map Shows The Countries Our Peace-Prize Winning President Has Bombed

 

 

140923160247-bombed-countries-obama-story-top

 

From the original CNN editorial:

 

” He’s the war-ending President who, as of Tuesday, has ordered airstrikes in seven different countries (that we know of).

  President Barack Obama has always acknowledged there are times when military force is necessary. Even when he accepted his Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, he said there could be instances when war is “morally justified.”

  But though he campaigned for the presidency on ending U.S.-led wars, Obama’s administration has certainly been willing to use force when it sees fit.”

 

 

 

Independent Journal Review provides a synopsis of the military actions

 

 

 

” Since he became President, the Nobel Peace Prize winner has directed invasions into 7 countries:

  1. Afghanistan: Much criticized by the Afghani local government, Obama continued George W. Bush’s use of bombing, via aircraft and drones, of targets.
  2. Pakistan: Drone attacks have continued here as well.
  3. Libya: The U.S. bombed Libya in March 2011. The situation has certainly not improved, as evidenced in part by the U.S. Embassy killings in 2012 and the evacuation of all American staff two months ago.
  4. Yemen: Since Obama took office, almost 100 drone attacks have occurred there.
  5. Somalia: American drones have attacked and killed terrorists throughout the country.
  6. Iraq: Renewed bombings began in Iraq last month, following George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush in attacking terrorists there.
  7. Syria: U.S. recently launched air strikes in Syria, despite the red line being drawn by the President over Bashar al-Assad’s use of chemical weapons over a year ago.”

Missing Libyan Jetliners Raise Fears Of Suicide Airliner Attacks On 9/11

 

 

 

 

” Islamist militias in Libya took control of nearly a dozen commercial jetliners last month, and western intelligence agencies recently issued a warning that the jets could be used in terrorist attacks across North Africa.

  Intelligence reports of the stolen jetliners were distributed within the U.S. government over the past two weeks and included a warning that one or more of the aircraft could be used in an attack later this month on the date marking the anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks against New York and Washington, said U.S. officials familiar with the reports.

“ There are a number of commercial airliners in Libya that are missing,” said one official. “We found out on September 11 what can happen with hijacked planes.” “

 

 

 

Great timing . Thanks Barack , your Libyan spring is paying off in spades … 

 

 

 

” The state-owned Libyan Airlines fleet until this summer included 14 passenger and cargo jetliners, including seven Airbus 320s, one Airbus 330, two French ATR-42 turboprop aircraft, and four Bombardier CJR-900s. Libyan state-owned Afriqiyah Airways fleet is made up of 13 aircraft, including three Airbus 319s, seven Airbus 320s, two Airbus 330s, and one Airbus 340.

  The aircraft were reportedly taken in late August following the takeover of Tripoli International Airport, located about 20 miles south of the capital, by Libyan Dawn.

  Al Jazeera television reported in late August that western intelligence reports had warned of terror threats to the region from 11 stolen commercial jets. “

Leave Libya Now, Foreign Office Tells Britons

 

 

 

 

 

” Since late 2013, a number of foreign nationals have been shot dead in Libya. The Foreign Office said further attacks were “likely”.   The updated travel advice comes amid reports of at least 30 deaths in clashes between Libyan government forces and Islamist militants in the city of Benghazi.

  There were also reports of intense fighting near Tripoli airport. More than 20 people are said to have been killed.   On Saturday, the US evacuated its embassy in Tripoli, citing a “real risk” because of the fighting.”

Delta Force Commando Who Saved ‘Numerous Lives’ In Benghazi Seige Honored

 

 

Distinguished Service Cross Halbruner

 

” An Army Delta Force commando who infiltrated Benghazi to rescue U.S. diplomats, spies and security officers during a 2012 terrorist attack “was critical to the success of saving numerous lives,” according to a citation awarding him the military’s second-highest honor.

  Delta Force’s role was not disclosed in any public report or congressional testimony. The Army citation for the Distinguished Service Cross, posted on a website for Army personnel, provides the first detailed look at what one of the commandos, Master Sgt. David R. Halbruner, accomplished.

  The Washington Times reported in November that two members of Delta Force, the Army’s premier counterterrorism unit, were among seven U.S. personnel who went to Benghazi, Libya, on a rescue mission the night of Sept. 11, 2012. The second Delta member, a Marine, was awarded the Navy Cross for heroism, The Times reported.

  The Distinguished Service Cross and the Navy Cross are the second-highest military awards in precedence, below the Medal of Honor.

  Critics of the Obama administration’s response to Benghazi say the fact that two Delta Force commandos were instrumental in the rescue shows that the Pentagon should have made a concerted effort to get troops to the annex.”

   It’s amazing what two operators managed to do … imagine what could have been accomplished if they had the help that should have been made available .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Two Out Of Eight In Tripoli Sent To Rescue, Honored For Valor

 

 

 

 

” Masked from public view, two of the U.S. military’s elite special operations commandos have been awarded medals for bravery for a mission that further undercuts the Obama administration’s original story about the Benghazi tragedy.

It said time and distance prevented any commandos outside Libya from reaching a CIA compound under attack. The timeline disclosed that a reinforcement flight 400 miles away in Tripoli contained two “DoD personnel” but did not describe who they were. Later, the official State Department report on Benghazi said they were “two U.S. military personnel” — but provided no other details. It made no mention of special operations forces.

But sources directly familiar with the attack tell The Washington Times that a unit of eight special operators — mostly Delta Force and Green Beret members — were in Tripoli the night of the attack, on a counterterrorism mission that involved capturing weapons and wanted terrorists from the streets and helping train Libyan forces.

The two special operations forces arrived in time to engage in the final, ferocious firefight between the terrorists and Americans holed up in the CIA annex near the ill-fated diplomatic mission in Benghazi, the sources added.

The two special operators were awarded medals for valor for helping repel a complex attack that killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stephens, another American diplomat and two former Navy SEALs, but spared many more potential casualties.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

BENGHAZI: CBS 60 Minutes Full Coverage [Transcript and Video]

 

CBS Benghazi Report

 

 

    Free Patriot has the complete video and transcript . While it is about time that a major news network acknowledged that shame that is the Obama administration’s handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack , 60 minutes ,after promising some sort of bombshell revelations , comes up short . 

   Nothing new here to those of us that have been paying attention.

 

 

” When Chris Stevens was killed in Benghazi, Libya, on the anniversary of September 11th last year, it was only the sixth time that the United States had lost an ambassador to its enemies. The events of that night have been overshadowed by misinformation, confusion and intense partisanship. But for those who lived through it, there’s nothing confusing about what happened, and they share a sense of profound frustration because they say they saw it coming.

Tonight, you will hear for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the attack. He calls himself, Morgan Jones, a pseudonym he’s using for his own safety. A former British soldier, he’s been helping to keep U.S. diplomats and military leaders safe for the last decade. On a night he describes as sheer hell, Morgan Jones snuck into a Benghazi hospital that was under the control of al Qaeda terrorists, desperate to find out if one of his close friends from the U.S. Special Mission was the American he’d been told was there.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

U.S. Raids In Libya And Somalia Strike Terror Targets

 

 

 

” American commandos carried out raids on Saturday in two far-flung African countries in a powerful flex of military muscle aimed at capturing fugitive terrorist suspects. American troops assisted by F.B.I. and C.I.A. agents seized a suspected leader of Al Qaeda on the streets of Tripoli, Libya, while Navy SEALs raided the seaside villa of a militant leader in a predawn firefight on the coast of Somalia.

In Tripoli, American forces captured a Libyan militant who had been indicted in 2000 for his role in the 1998 bombings of the United States embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. The militant, born Nazih Abdul-Hamed al-Ruqai and known by his nom de guerre, Abu Anas al-Liby, had a $5 million bounty on his head; his capture at dawn ended a 15-year manhunt.

In Somalia, the Navy SEAL team emerged before sunrise from the Indian Ocean and exchanged gunfire with militants at the home of a senior leader of the Shabab, the Somali militant group. The raid was planned more than a week ago, officials said, after a massacre by the Shabab at a Nairobi shopping mall that killed more than 60 people two weeks ago.

The SEAL team was forced to withdraw before it could confirm that it had killed the Shabab leader, a senior American security official said. Officials declined to identify the target. “

Syria Is Jihad Central: 6,000 Terrorists Flood New al Qaeda Training Ground

 

 

” Thousands of foreign terrorists traveled to Syria over the past several months to wage jihad, or holy war, in what U.S. officials say is fast becoming a new international terror training ground.

Most of the foreign terrorists are fighting for the al Qaeda-linked group the al-Nusra Front and are coming from around the world, mainly from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Libya, and Tunisia, by crossing the Syrian border with Turkey. The al-Nusra Front is the most well organized and ideologically motivated armed opposition group after the secular Free Syrian Army.

“The Syrian opposition is benefiting from a steady flow of foreign fighters who seem to be joining a variety of Islamist-oriented brigades or, on a smaller scale, starting up nationality-based units,” said one U.S. official familiar with internal reports on the region.”

Libyan Intelligence: Muslim Brotherhood, Morsi Involved in U.S. Consulate Attack

 

 

” According to a Libyan intelligence document, the Muslim Brotherhood, including Egyptian President Morsi, were involved in the September 11, 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, where several Americans, including U.S. ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, were killed.”

 

” On Wednesday, June 26, several Arabic websites, including Veto Gate, quoted the intelligence report, which apparently was first leaked to the Kuwaiti paper, Al Ra’i.  Prepared by Mahmoud Ibrahim Sharif, Director of National Security for Libya, the report is addressed to the nation’s Minister of Interior.

It discusses the preliminary findings of the investigation, specifically concerning an “Egyptian cell” which was involved in the consulate attack. “Based on confessions derived from some of those arrested at the scene” six people, “all of them Egyptians” from the jihad group Ansar al-Sharia (“Supporters of Islamic Law), were arrested.”

Gunmen Attack Libyan Posts In Benghazi

 

 

” Gunman attacked the city’s Special Forces headquarters and other security buildings in this increasingly restive city Saturday in what some residents suspected was a retaliatory response to an assault a week ago that killed 32 and shut down the nation’s largest militia.

The latest attack fueled concerns of a further deteriorating security situation in this already volatile city, Libya’s second largest. The interim head of the Libyan army, Salem al-Konidi warned of a potential “bloodbath” that could emerge here.

The attacks began around 3 a.m. local time when gunfire could be heard outside places such as the nation’s Army Special Forces headquarters. The mob then moved to a police building and at least three other security outposts, before fighting ended around 6 a.m. According to estimates by one Special Forces official, five soldiers and four gunmen were killed and another four people were injured.

Suspicion fell on members of the Libyan Shields, a militia group set up and funded by the government to buttress the nation’s nascent government forces.”

CBS Confirms Reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s Computer Breached

 

 

 

 

” CBS News said Friday it has confirmed that a computer used by one of its Washington reporters, Sharyl Attkisson, was breached by an unknown intruder and that the hack appeared to be “sophisticated.”

The intrusions were detected in December, when Attkisson was reporting almost exclusively on the government’s response to the terrorist attacks on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. The attack on Sept. 11, 2012, killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens. Attkisson has previously investigated the Department of Justice’s gun-tracking operation known as “Fast and Furious.”

It added, “Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts. While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and [removal] of data. This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion.” “

 

     Since Ms Attkisson has been the leader in reporting on both Fast & Furious and Benghazi the list of possible suspects would seem to be a short one . Who would have the ability to mount “sophisticated” attacks and the desire to “remove data” pertaining to two prominent administration scandals ?

Officials Instructed Benghazi Hospital To List Stevens As “John Doe”

” U.S. officials gave instructions for Benghazi Medical Center to use a “John Doe” pseudonym on the death certificate of Ambassador Christopher Stevens after he died of asphyxiation in the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. That’s according to a U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity because the official isn’t authorized to speak publicly on the matter. The reason for the pseudonym, says the official, was to avoid drawing undue attention to the importance of the victim as Americans rushed to figure out how to recover Stevens’ body and return it to the U.S.

The official provided the most complete accounting yet of Stevens’ whereabouts and passing in the eight and a half months since his death.”

 

 

 

 

Hillary’s Approval Ratings Plummet, Benghazi Scandal Blamed

 

 

 

” Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton remains the 2016 presidential candidate to beat, but her handling of the Benghazi, Libya assassination of the U.S. ambassador, panned by the public, has significantly knocked her approval ratings down from an all-time high of just three months ago, according to a new poll.

“Her score is down substantially from her all-time high score in February. The drop in her favorability is substantial among men, Republicans and independent voters. One reason for her drop may be that 48 percent of voters blame her either a little or a lot for the death of the American ambassador in Benghazi,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University polling Institute.”

 

 

   Benghazi has proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hillary is no more capable of handling that “3am phone call” than is her former boss . The burning question of the times , however , is what transpired during the “10pm phone call” between Hillary and Barack .

 

 

 

 

 

Obama Refuses To Bring Benghazi Killers To Justice Because He Wants To Try Them In Court

 

 

Benghazi_Suspects

 

 

” Back in October of last year, Obama said of the Benghazi terrorist attack that “my biggest priority now is bringing those folks to justice and I think the American people have seen that’s a commitment I’ll always keep.”

Some of you might be skeptical about his commitment to investigating Tea Party groups bringing the “folks” over for dinner and justice. But never fear. It’s Obama’s biggest priority. Right after amnesty for illegal aliens, banning guns and playing golf.

Also throwing concerts in the White House, doing comedy skits with reporters and well a whole bunch of other stuff. But after all those other things, it’s his biggest priority.

And the results are in.

The U.S. has identified five men who might be responsible for the attack on the diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year, and has enough evidence to justify seizing them by military force as suspected terrorists, officials say. But there isn’t enough proof to try them in a U.S. civilian court as the Obama administration prefers.

The men remain at large while the FBI gathers evidence. But the investigation has been slowed by the reduced U.S. intelligence presence in the region since the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks, and by the limited ability to assist by Libya’s post-revolutionary law enforcement and intelligence agencies, which are still in their infancy since the overthrow of dictator Col. Moammar Gadhafi.”

It Does Make A Difference

 

 

 

 

It makes a difference when those sent abroad to represent our country die because they were not provided proper protection — requested, but denied.

It makes a difference that some who were told not to respond put the safety of others first, responded none the less, and because of their effort paid the ultimate price.

It makes a difference that our president did not immediately engage an aggressive effort to help these people.

It makes a difference that those in the highest offices of this nation were informed early this was a terrorist attack, but chose to deceive us with a fabrication about a video as the cause of the attack, rather than state the truth — it was terrorists.

It makes a difference that our president tried to blame the video as causal, rather than terrorists, when speaking to the families of the fallen heroes … such moments and face-to-face family condolences are times for honor and respect, not lies.

It makes a difference that his vice president, his CIA director, and his secretary of state all echoed the lie to the families of the fallen … “nose-to-nose,” as Shawn Smith’s mother stated.”

When It Rains, It Pours: Ten Press Conference Take Aways

 

 

 

 

” President Obama’s press conference in the rain was not a success, if by success, his supporters would mean an event which convinces anyone who doesn’t work for him that he’s getting ahead of the scandal deluge. The sight of a Marine holding an umbrella over his head only added to the weirdness of the event.

So what did we learn?

4. He wouldn’t say that the White House had no previous knowledge of IRS wrongdoing. Instead he said he didn’t have any knowledge of the Inspector General’s report before it was released.

5. He brought up funding for our embassies, referencing Benghazi, Libya. But of course we know that funding shortages had nothing to do with the fiasco that transpired. For claiming otherwise my colleague Glenn Kessler awarded Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) three Pinocchios.

10.  Mainstream media reaction to the president’s handling of the scandals ranges from bad to terrible. Sure there are some very creative excuse-makers for the president, but they are now in the decided minority.”

Kirstin Powers on Obama’s Strategy: I’m Just Going to Call Them Lies Because They’re Lies

” Kirstin Powers on Barack Obama’s dishonesty on Benghazi. “He’s so centrally involving himself with these repeated lies. And, I’m just going to call them lies because they’re lies. They’re on tape. Nobody thought that he called it a terrorist attack. Last night I went up and I looked at the New York Times how they reported it (Benghazi) the day after. They never reference that we had a terrorist attack against the United States. On September 20th, however, they run a story that says Libyan envoys killing was a terrorist attack. And they say until now White House officials have not used that language in describing the assault. That is September 20th. That is The New York Times. Now at what point are people going to get tired of the president coming out and over and over saying things like don’t believe your lying eyes?” “

POTENTIAL WITNESSES WHO MAY FACE ISSA’S OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE IN NEAR FUTURE

” Congressman Darrell Issa (R-CA), Chairman of the House Oversight Committee, ended the Benghazi attack hearing on Wednesday by stating, “This hearing is closed. But this investigation is not over,” indicating more whistle blower Benghazi hearings are likely due in the future.

Following the appearance of State Department employees Gregory Hicks, Eric Nordstrom, and Mark Thompson at his hearing, Issa told reporters he is encouraging more whistle blowers who know anything about last September’s deadly Benghazi attack to step forward and talk to his Committee.

Issa told Breitbart News on Wednesday that the committee “reserves the right” to subpoena witnesses for future hearings. Issa would not specify who the Committee is currently looking to bring before its members, but a number of names have been mentioned over past weeks. The following witnesses could provide unique perspectives into what happened in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 as well as the administration’s explanation of it immediately afterward.

BENGHAZI LEADS TO CLINTON CONFIDANT FROM INVESTIGATIONS PAST

 

 

 

 

” This week was not the first time Cheryl Mills’ name has come up in a controversial manner at a congressional oversight hearing. In fact, it’s not the first time Ms. Mills has been the subject of potential wrongdoing in the very same hearing room–Room 2154 in the Rayburn House Office Building to be exact. 

While being questioned under oath by Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) on Wednesday, former Deputy Ambassador to Libya Gregory Hicks testified that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, was “very upset” when she called him about his cooperation with congressional investigators.

Throughout the 1990s, Mills was a big part of the Clinton White House counsel’s office “damage control” detail. Name a Clinton scandal, and Cheryl Mills was usually running interference for the Clintons with congressional investigators. In fact, in 1998, Mills allegedly crossed the line in her dealings with the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, who felt it was necessary to send a criminal referral to the Department of Justice regarding Mills’ activities and testimony on behalf of the Clinton White House. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

US Forces On Alert In Response To Libya

 

 

 

” Marines and other U.S. forces in Europe are on a heightened state of alert in response to a deteriorating security situation in the Libyan capital of Tripoli, two U.S. officials said Friday.

The alert order applies to a U.S. special operations team based in Stuttgart, Germany, as well as a Marine group of air and ground forces based in Moron, Spain, according to the officials, who were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The forces alerted in Europe are under U.S. Africa Command, which acquired the special operations team in the fall. The command did not have a similar team – or the Marines in Spain – available last September for possible use in response to the deadly attack on the US diplomatic facilities in the Libyan city of Benghazi.”
