Friday Bits and Pieces
If it doesn’t fit the political narrative……it never happened and, “What difference at this point does it make”? I am sure it makes a “difference” to the only person being held in a jail cell over the Benghazi debacle. You know, the guy who made a 15 minute video and was blamed by the Administration for inflaming the Muslim sensitivities, which then led to the full force of the Fed coming down on his head.
One senior U.S. law enforcement official told CNN that “three or four members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula,” or AQAP, took part in the attack.
Another source briefed on the Benghazi investigation said Western intelligence services suspect the men may have been sent by the group specifically to carry out the attack. But it’s not been ruled out that they were already in the city and participated as the opportunity arose. …
If the AQAP members were dispatched to Benghazi, it would be further evidence of a new level of co-operation among jihadist groups throughout the Middle East and North Africa, counterterrorism analysts say.
It seems the Obama narrative has fallen apart on Benghazi. One thing Bush figured out with the Iraq invasion, depose a dictator but do not leave a vacuum for terrorists to fill.
As for Syria…..dithering is the “course” taken by BO….never mind the “red line”. Libya plays hard in this decision.
The Obama administration has returned to the idea of arming moderate Syrian rebels, current and former officials said, because many officials see it as one of the few steps available to shore up the opposition without drawing the U.S. military into the two-year-old civil war.
Advocates see delivering weapons as the least invasive of the alternatives available to President Barack Obama. One former official called it the “best of the bad options.”
About the Jason Collins coming out party….spent 8 years lying to his fiancé. Yeah, what a guy, so courageous.
“But Collins did attempt to obscure his engagement. This is what he wrote: “When I was younger I dated women. I even got engaged.”
That sure sounds like someone who got engaged young, not someone who cancelled a wedding at the age of about 30 after an eight year relationship. While his statement was technically true (everything in our past was when we were younger), it had to have been intentionally misleading, especially coming from a Stanford grad.”
BO is busy telling the Mexicans how grateful he is for their “votes” and how deeply sorrowful he is that “90% of the guns” used by crime lords are from the US (that has been totally debunked). In reality major illegal guns going across the border came from a government which heralded and supported the Fast and Furious gun running debacle.
“And we also recognize that most of the guns used to commit violence here in Mexico come from the United States,” he said. “I think many of you know that in America, our Constitution guarantees our individual right to bear arms, and as president, I swore an oath to uphold that right and I always will.
“But at the same time, as I’ve said in the United States, I will continue to do everything in my power to [pass] common-sense reforms that keep guns out of the hands of criminals and dangerous people, that can save lives here in Mexico and back home in the United States. It’s the right thing to do.”
Sounds like he’s running for Preezy in Mexico too. Same speech, different country.
