On October 19, 2012, I released a column laying out how Romney can destroy Obama on Foreign Policy based upon the disastrous mishandling of the Benghazi massacre. The following morning, I received a State Department document dump including more than a hundred pages of official “unclassified” cables between the Benghazi embassy and multiple Obama administration officials.
I was not the only person to receive this document dump. Our team spent the weekend fully vetting and organizing the State Department communications and preparing an Executive Summary Brief based upon those damning documents, connecting some dots to other related events unfolding during the same time frame within the Obama administration.
That brief along with the supporting evidence was delivered to the Romney campaign and posted for the general public on Sunday, as news was beginning to break regarding the State Department cables evidencing administration failures and intentional efforts to develop and promote a cover story aimed at protecting Barack Obama until after his re-election bid.
As Obama surrogates flooded the news rooms accusing Republicans of “politicizing” the massacre in Benghazi, and Obama fled to Camp David in a panic, to develop yet another cover story to escape responsibility for their Middle East meltdown, congressional investigations into damning State Department communications were ramping up.
By Sunday morning, the story was blazing across the Internet, even as all major news agencies continued to ignore the damning communications, or openly run cover for Obama by advancing the notion that Republicans were “politicizing” Benghazi.
The New York Times was given the information on the 19th and 20th, as a congressional committee just released a request for information to the Obama administration. The information sent to the New York Times, proving their previous narrative defending Obama on Benghazi to be totally false, has to-date, been totally ignored by the paper.
Democrat surrogates and TV talking heads are out in force trying to spin public sentiment on the damaging information only two weeks before a critical election, in which Barack Obama has been losing ground over the last two weeks.
Caught in their web of lies and deceit, the Obama administration is in total damage control mode, desperate to create a new narrative on Benghazi only hours before a Foreign Policy debate with challenger Mitt Romney tonight.
Now that none of their previous lies regarding Benghazi and an obscure YouTube video can stand any longer, with the truth out in the open, the administration plans to blame Benghazi on congressional Republicans for “denying funding” necessary for the State Department to protect foreign diplomats abroad.
This story will not hold either. The Executive Summary answers many questions and an additional Budget Report demonstrates that the State Department was operating with a record budget 400% more than when Obama took office.
Further, as the Obama administration set the Middle East on fire, without congressional advice or consent, in direct violation of the War Powers Act, they knowingly and purposefully refused to properly secure our consulates abroad, allowed known terror organizations to flood into Libya, funding and arming “insurgents” that included known leaders of Al Qaeda and other groups operating under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood, in the end responsible for the attacks that killed four U.S. diplomats in Benghazi.
The 2012 election should focus on every facet of the Obama administration, no facet more so than Foreign Policy and National Security.
It is absolutely “the people’s business” to know exactly how good or bad the Obama administration has performed, especially in the area of National Security and Foreign Policy during a time in history when much of the world is in economic and civil meltdown.
The Obama administration has been trying to claim that “Obama got Bin Laden” ever since SEAL Team 6 raided that compound in Pakistan. In the end, it turns out that Obama had nothing to do with that raid, not even issuing the order.
No administration in U.S. history has worked so hard to politicize every event that made them look good, or blame someone else for every event that makes them look bad.
The American voters have a right and a need to know exactly what the Obama administration has accomplished over the last four years, be it a disastrous economy and $16 trillion in debt, class warfare, race riots, or the death of foreign diplomats.
The decisions American voters make can never be any better than the information they use to make those decisions.
How dare anyone try to block the truth from public view. The list of administration people who deserve to hang for this is long and distinguished. But the buck stops with Obama!
Romney has the ammunition. We have to wait until tonight to see what he will do with it.
Regardless of the choice Romney makes tonight, The United States Patriots Union and Veteran Defenders of America will issue a call for immediate investigations and charges to hold everyone accountable who was involved in the massacre at Benghazi.
