The Mainstream Media: A Clear & Present Danger to America
Latest: Classified cable warned consulate couldn't withstand 'coordinated attack' - Interview with Greta Van Susteren

The Judge has been a fine addition to Fox with her own show. Love her!
Incredible, but should not be a surprise for Canadians. How much coverage has there been with the "coup" by the Liberal Party of Ontario in the last Ontario election using in excess of a Billion $ of Ontario taxpayer's money. This money being used to purchase two seats to obtain a majority government.
Even the National Post places their comment, transfered from the Financial Post, "below the fold" on the front page of today's print edition.
It seems the new Editorial Board is steadily sliding into the tank for the resurrection of the Liberal Party in all jurisdictions. not cheerful
You know, I get the distinct impression that there are clever forces at work here trying to get "two birds with one stone", which may end up being one of the most brilliant campaign take-outs of all time. The Prez is already fatally wounded by the Benghazi débâcle and with that second report from Greta they are going after the Clinton machine as well. If it blows up as bad as I think it might it will effectively decapitate the dem party and leave it a smouldering ruin for years.
Though to be fair though, I should state that PM Harper's three stooges beat-down still ranks in the top three all time.
Who would have guessed that giving hot, smart, conservative women their own shows would be a recipe for ratings success? Roger Ailes is brilliant.
The Mainstream Media: CBC, A Clear and Present Danger to Canada
But in the Canadian MSM,.you can be sure this story will get prominent display! I'm going to check "Canada's fair and balanced news service"....
Lessee:at National Newswatch...Avril Lavigne's boyfriend tells all, Harper screws up,Harper F***s up, Harper fouls up, Harper does everything wrong,....Justin will save the Country ..several times over,.... oh,here it is ! ...Obama pictured hugging a distraught WHITE woman in New Jersey while some fat guy looks on,... Obama will get back on the campaign trail just to save the Country from that fascist Republican,...Hmmm....
Nope,not a damned thing about Benghazi....maybe it never happened,like the moon landings or the holocaust.
I've mentioned before that when I did CPR and First Aid training, I was told not to go to the aid of someone that's been in an accident with an electric car... until the hood's been opened and the battery disconnected.
"At a campaign event today in Wisconsin, President Obama once again misled the country about the status of the terrorist group al Qaeda.
“Al Qaeda has been decimated,” he said to the crowd
The U.S. Mission in Benghazi convened an “emergency meeting” less than a month before the assault that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, because Al Qaeda had training camps in Benghazi and the consulate could not defend against a “coordinated attack,” according to a classified cable reviewed by Fox News.
I concur, the American Liberal MainStream Media is corrupt.
Props to Pat Caddell; willing to tell it like it is...the man is a Mensch.
The MSM is so bereft, betwixt and between, they have made an ideological decision to protect their Anointed. They are so busy halo polishing the "Obama-Nation(tm)" they have failed to discover he also has some indisputable horns.
I mean if the "Obama-Nation(tm)" were Pinnochio the nose would be several light years long, on this issue alone. Geez even Gepetto would have disowned him.
Then you get a cable that says on AUGUST 16 that says the facility could not sustain a coordinated attack, with 10 militias running the roost and Al-Qaeda is here; straight to Hillary from Ambassador Stevens.
The "Obama-Nation(tm)" leaves no one behind except his own Ambassador, security personnel and former SEAL team members. President Pinnochio who is pulling your strings?

“The State Department is responsible for assessing security at its diplomatic installations and for requesting support from other government agencies if they need it,” a senior U.S. Defense official said. “There was no request from the Department of State to intervene militarily on the night of the attack.”
Today, the White House press secretary let it slip during a press gaggle aboard Air Force One that President Obama’s inaction on the Benghazi situation now extends to inaction on the supposed investigation taking place. The administration has still not made clear what exactly is being investigated, or the extent of the investigation. And President Obama doesn’t much care. Said Carney:
I honestly have to say the this was a historical clip in many respects, first, Pat, left the Demorat plantation, and called a spade a spade... shockingly he also called out Bammy's Amen corner in the MSM... what's even more remarkable, was that his statement shocked Ann Coulter into silence, which was astounding.. And I kinda like Ann..
The warning didn't fit the false narrative that AQ had been defeated, that the nice Obama regime was gaining friends in the Arab world - so it was ignored.
If this thesis is even somewhat accurate, coupled with some of the gun running accusations and AQ infiltration of friendly groups, then even if Obama is re-elected a scandal will likely erupt and result in his removal.
At best the POTUS administration was incompetent and at worst acted in an illegal manner. Their weasel words "there's an investigation ongoing" and "I reacted immediately when aware of the situation" may save the Dems' election fortunes - we will see.
My theory to why this happened, why attacks were allowed to continue is that Obama viewed these events through his postmodern, anticolonial lense where he was sure an obscure video caused these attacks and reacted with a tin ear when confronted with the truth. When he finally woke up to the reality, he knew he was screwed and therefore pushed the false video attack cause narrative.
There are more disturbing revelations to come that have been suppressed by the Obama admimistration, such as:
- Obama administration/State Dept complicit in serious security breach in Lybia with infiltration of supposedly US friendly groups by AQ, essentially meaning the US armed its enemies which led directly to the death of an ambassador, himself possibly compromised.
- the recognition by the Obama administration of Jerusalem as Palestinian capital and jettisoning of any special relationship with Israel, explaining at least partly why Obama refused to meet Netanyanhu.
- the revelation of a deal with Iran to be allowed to continue their nuclear power fiction, to appease their ambitions, with war with Israel as the likely result.
- many, many bailouts of Dem friendly union dominated and green industries and soaring debt and conditional Chinese loan/bond issue agreements, and also
- a large scale AQ military operation, no doubt using some video or quote from somebody as cover, likely in the US but certainly against her interests.
Any one of those events, with the possible exception of bailouts/debt, will likely end the Obama's administration either because of impreachment like proceedings or Obama's resignation because his auto-centric attitude and ego can't stand the criticism.
Whether or not the Dems win the White House these revelations will sink them for years to come. They're trying to just survive and then be forced to deal with that unpleasant truth in 2013.
Romney is wise to stay with the economy/jobs mantra....Joe Sixpack don't know about Benghazi and couldn't care less....

When I watched the show Saturday evening, I couldn't believe how furious Caddell was. You could almost see his veins pulsing in his neck. If he can be convinced, its just possible others can be as well. After President Romney is inaugurated, hopefully he will let some one loose in Justice and get to the bottom of this scandal. Rudi Guliani for Attorney General. Holy smoly. That would be wicked.
We know Obama/Clinton allowed Stephens and the others to be killed.
When will Fox/Beck et al start asking:
"Did Obama/Clinton arrange for Stephens death?"
How it is possible for Obama to still be in this race is not a mystery. You need look no further then the obtuse reporting from the NY/LA Times, Washington Post, ABC, CBS, NBC on a myriad of topics from the Benghazi bungle, Fast & Furious filr or even the friends of Obama (Frank Marshall Davis - American communist; Bill Ayers - American terrorist; Reverend Jermiah Wright - American bigot). Any other sitting president or prospective candidate with as dubious a record or collection of reprobates as friends would be hounded by a free & responsible press into a richly deserved state of public & personal humilation and resign. Of course to humilate somebody you have to first get past their hubristic lack of shame. This will never be possible with a MSM press that exacerbates an egregious presidency by refusing to practice the right that the people we honour on November 11th died for. The torch is not being held high by today's press. What a disgrace.
The Libyan angle of not giving security orders is interesting.
A commentor at HotAir poses the following scenario:
They did. This was an assassination of our Ambassador, ordered by the President of the United States, to cover up the fact that we were supplying weapons to Islamic rebels.
Gregor on November 1, 2012 at 4:52 PM
Not only that, but this was coordinated with Libyan government as can be seen from a request for extra police protection and patrolling and never acted upon. This was nothing but an ordered hit to get rid of Stevens who was in charge of running sophisticated guns to Al Qaeda on our dime. Same Al Qaeda that Hussein and Biden have pronounced on the run and done with.
Beck had a good investigation on the gun running with name and places, have no idea why GOP keeps ignoring it. But then again, this is the same GOP who did their best to get rid of Allen West, so mine is a rhetorical question.
As already suggested in prior threads as well as this one above, GOP will not do much past “investigation”. Same as with any other “investigation” so far that led absolutely nowhere.

I'm just wondering if the WH did order a slash and burn directive because "They" (Hillary, et al) thought he was losing the election, and their cover would be blown.
In hindsght , it would have worked if not foe the intervention of Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.
There would have been no need for the second attack if the first one had carried out it's objective and mopped up.
There might not have been over 30 survivors either.
A stand down order makes sense in this very Machiavellian scenario.
So, how long is Pat Caddell going to remain a Democrat?. I love his righteous indignation. We need more like him.
ok? Not ok.
CNN came out today claiming FOX news has lied about the embassies requests for assistance.
Incredible treason and collusion with Obamba against the nation.
God Bless Pat Caddell for calling a spade a spade!
All of america should be outraged at this current administration over this ccover up.
what a disgrace they are!
i pray the american electorate turf them in 5 days!
Pat Caddell was the brains & policy wonk behind the second worst President..The Peanut head!
I would think he hopes Obama goes into history as the not so DARK (hidden) Muslim dick head...
FYI: Pat Caddell is notoriously mercurial going back to the days of dukakis, so his rage in this instance isn't surprising.
That said, the abrogation of many in the press' responsibility to report what is news - the vital part of their role in maintaining a healthy, functioning democracy - is enough to make one ponder some kind journalism review process where irresponsible journos and news orgs could have their accreditation revoked...
G @ 7:09...that's what I've been suggesting.
I recall a diary belonging Stephens that was conveniently retreived by media people...CNN?
Why do they yell?
They sound like those ruptured seagulls on the PBS McLauglin Group.
Looks like it will be an interesting day now that CBS has blinked over Beck's threat. Lets see how fast the rest of the media can get on board, who's going to be the next one to throw Obama under the bus,...ABC, CNN...
If there is a silver lining its the fact this story is busting open .No matter how the MSM is trying to dig this bone a hole.
“Press TV: US military planned mutiny on the Bounty to topple Obama – STEP ONE BENGHAZI!
Those involved in the plot, those outside the military, are those who are spreading “conspiracy theory” rumors about US complicity or malfeasance in the handling of the murder of the US ambassador to Libya, Chris Stephens.
Today, CIA Director, General Petraeus clearly stated that the CIA had received no requests for help. A month ago, the State Department also made it clear, the attack was military, well coordinated and that no forces were available capable of making a difference.
In fact, the “conspiracy theorists,” those attempting to use their wild theories in order to implement an “October Surprise” are directly aligned with those who planned and executed the attack.”
I have always thought the march of history was greater than any of the individuals involved. Ultimately a 'promise to pay' is easier than paying cash.
Assuming that Romney has the ability or even inclination to make serious change might be overly ambitious. If there is any hope for a 'rebuild' it is probably better not to be in power when the ship goes over the abysis.
I had thought a Romney victory was a last gasp grab for sanity but now I am thinking Obama has a shot.
I think of Ann as I do our Kate..frigging awesome. Pat Caddell has always seemed to me to be billed on the talk shows as more lefty but I think he has stopped drinking the koolaid for some time now. I like his distaste of MSM and can only hope he keeps up in that vain.
