Obama: U.S. Underestimated Rise Of ISIS In Iraq And Syria

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

” President Obama acknowledged that the U.S. underestimated the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also called ISIL) and overestimated the ability of the Iraqi military to fend off the militant group in an interview that will air Sunday on 60 Minutes.

  The president was asked by 60 Minutes correspondent Steve Kroft about comments from Director of National Intelligence James Clapper, who has said the U.S. not only underestimated ISIS, it also overestimated the ability and will of the Iraqi military to fight the extremist group.

” That’s true,” Mr. Obama said. “That’s absolutely true.”

” Jim Clappper has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” he said, blaming the instability of the Syrian civil war for giving extremists space to thrive.”

Benghazi Attorney: Very Good Evidence People Were RELIEVED OF DUTY Because They Insisted On A Military Response

 

 

 

 

” Benghazi whistleblower attorney Joe DiGenova was on with WMAL this morning to talk Benghazi after last night’s 60 minutes piece and noted toward the end of the interview that there is very good evidence that people were relieved of command because they insisted on a military response and refused to not dispatch troops to aid our men on the ground in Benghazi. He also stated that the main reason there was no response was because the president went to sleep and refused to issue an order allowing our troops to fly into Libya.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hackers Hijack CBS To Claim Obama Involvement In Boston Bombings

 

 

 

 

 

” The mainstream media’s refusal to report on images showing private military operatives on the scene of the Boston bombings carrying heavy backpacks prompted hacking group the Syrian Electronic Army to take matters into their own hands by hijacking CBS 60 Minutes’ Twitter account and sending out tweets exposing unanswered questions behind this week’s attacks.

“The attack occurred while a “48 Hours” special about the Boston Marathon bombings was airing on the same network,” reports Boston.com.

The tweets sent out by the group mainly focused on the Obama administration’s support for Al-Qaeda militants in Syria, but also brought attention to an issue which has been subject to a corporate media blackout since it first emerged – the presence of numerous identically dressed men who were caught on camera immediately before and after the Boston bombings wearing black backpacks and behaving as if they were engaged in some kind of security exercise.

“The actual Boston bombers caught on camera, professionals under US regime protection,” one of the tweets stated. “The US government is hiding the real culprit of the Boston bombing,” added another.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kirstin Powers: “60 Minutes” Obama Interview Was Something You’d Expect From State-Run Media

President Barack Obama To Steve Kroft On Benghazi: $#!+ Happens, LOL

 

 

 

” And let’s remember that this is the president who has never encountered a problem that he doesn’t think he can solve with more government. He wants to be involved in every single decision you make every single day, but he doesn’t want to bear any responsibility when something goes wrong. That’s who he is. He wants all of the power and none of the responsibility.

This is the New Normal, then. Four Americans are murdered by Islamic terrorists on the anniversary of 9/11. The Obama administration abandons them and lies about their own incompetence and negligence, actually blaming the whole thing on some amateur filmmaker exercising his First Amendment rights .

And then… nothing. No consequences whatsoever. They have a laugh about it with one of their good little party apparatchiks at CBS News.”

What difference does it make?

 

 

New Tape Proves Obama Refused to Describe Benghazi Attack as Terrorism on 9-12

  “On Sunday, two days before the presidential election, CBS News released a video clip that proves two things. The clip is from President Barack Obama’s Sept. 12 interview with Steve Kroft of 60 Minutes. The newly release clip includes this exchange between the reporter and the president.

KROFT: Mr. President, this morning you went out of your way to avoid the use of the word terrorism in connection with the Libya Attack, do you believe that this was a terrorism attack?

OBAMA: Well it’s too early to tell exactly how this came about, what group was involved, but obviously it was an attack on Americans. And we are going to be working with the Libyan government to make sure that we bring these folks to justice, one way or the other.

KROFT: It’s been described as a mob action, but there are reports that they were very heavily armed with grenades, that doesn’t sound like your normal demonstration.

OBAMA: As I said, we’re still investigating exactly what happened, I don’t want to jump the gun on this. But your right that this is not a situation that was exactly the same as what happened in Egypt. And my suspicion is there are folks involved in this. Who were looking to target Americans from the start. So we’re gonna make sure that our first priority is to get our folks out safe, make sure our embassies are secured around the world and then we are going to go after those folks who carried this out. “

” ‘Being ignorant of your department’s biggest scandal is no cause for relief’ “

  “Andrew Cohen, a contributing editor at The Atlantic and legal analyst for CBS News’ “60
Minutes,” believes Attorney General
Eric Holder must resign following this week’s scathing report by the Justice Department’s inspector general, which sharply criticized the
administration’s handling of
Operation Fast and Furious.

  “In the end, the much-heralded,
much-maligned Office of the
Inspector General’s report on the
‘Fast and Furious’ gun scandal tells us what we already know: Attorney
General Eric Holder should resign if
President Barack Obama wins
another term,” Cohen wrote in a
Friday column for The Atlantic. “
