Why should professionals risk their lives out in the field to gather accurate information when analysts in offices thousands of miles away are going to completely ignore them anyway?
If you’re going to believe the testimony of the Deputy Director of the CIA at the time of the Benghazi attack, the answer is they shouldn’t bother.
You need to understand this: at this point, it is obvious to EVERYONE that when Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Jay Carney and a host of other Obama types came out and said that the Benghazi attack that murdered the first United States Ambassador since the failed Carter debacle in 1979 along with three other Americans was the result of a protest over a video rather than a planned and coordinated terrorist attack, that they were NOT TELLING THE TRUTH.
Everyone on the ground, along with the CIA station chief’s report from the region (Tripoli), proclaims that the attack had NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with any video or any protest, and in fact explicitly denies that any protest was going on at the time of the attack.
So why the bogus talking points?
The House asked the man who prepared them.
It should be noted that this man who prepared them, former Deputy Director of CIA Mike Morell, has played a game of revolving chairs. While Obama put one of his own damned LAWYERS into the job that Morell left, Morell suddenly joined Obama’s Intelligence Advisory Board. Oh, and took a cushy job with the mainstream media that has pathologically refused to ever once be fair or objective. He was rewarded well for misleading and in fact betraying America, I assure you.
IF you believe that Morell was telling the truth and he did NOT cook the books in the form of the talking points that Obama, Clinton, Rice, Carney et al cited when they said over and over again that the Benghazi attack resulted from a protest over a video (even though it wasn’t), this is what you HAVE to now believe about the way Obama makes decisions about foreign policy: he makes them ENTIRELY based on what analysts sitting at desks thousands of miles away from what is happening write about. He does NOT pay any attention to what the people on the ground say. If the people on the ground at the scene say the opposite of what the analysts say, well, who cares?
Let me wrap this in a bow for you: as Deputy Director of the CIA, Morell had ALL the intelligence available to him. That is why his office is charged with preparing the White House talking points memo to begin with. Mike Morell KNEW what the CIA and military people on the ground watching the attack unfold were saying.
Again, that’s what you HAVE to conclude if Morell didn’t alter the talking points for political reasons. He acknowledged that the professionals on the ground were screaming that the attack was a planned, coordinated terrorist attack having nothing to do with any stupid video. But he pointed out that none of that mattered because what mattered was what the analysts said and the analysts said that it was a video protest and so that’s what the Deputy Director of Obama’s CIA went with. And it was nothing beyond a random coincidence that the bogus output of the analysts was exactly what the political aspirations of Obama needed.
Obama had been saying he’d decimated and wiped out al Qaeda. He had been saying the war on terror was over and he’d won it. He did NOT want to have to explain a terrorist attack against the United States and one of its ambassadors.
And so he didn’t.
Sadly, for Obama not to have committed high crimes and misdemeanors in the form of making his personal politics trump national security, what we are instead being told is that Obama blatantly ignores the facts on the ground and instead trusts to the spin of theorists in Washington.
If that makes you liberals feel good about Obama, fine. It makes me sick to my stomach either way.
What do I believe Morell did? I believe he deliberately chose to ignore the facts being screamed from the ground and influenced his analysts to cook the books the way Obama wanted instead.
With Obama having gutted our military we are truly week. With Obama ignoring the experts on the ground who are seeing the events unfold, we are truly blind. And under Obama, the CIA is no more “independent” than his thug IRS. Both agencies and numerous others are merely political wings of the Obama political machine rewarding Obama’s friends and punishing Obama’s enemies.
