Accuracy in Media

The House Select Committee on Benghazi has issued a major, 800-plus page report detailing the events behind the attacks in Benghazi, Libya. No words can fully describe the tragedy that took the lives of four brave Americans. However, the Citizens’ Commission on Benghazi (CCB) and Accuracy in Media (AIM) are set to further expose the truth behind the September 11, 2012 attacks in a much shorter report that, absent the resources available to the Committee, may offer a clearer perspective on the events leading up to and during these terror attacks.

Select Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said at the committee’s press conference on June 28 that he is in the business of describing who, what, where, and when—and not why! In reality, the Benghazi attacks serve as a Rosetta stone into Barack Obama’s administration—its motives, its ideology, its transparency, its judgment and its ethics. Their actions must be put in context, and their cover-ups must be exposed.

benghazi-fireThe CCB report is now available online. It will be explained and discussed at a press conference at 2 p.m. ET on June 29 at the National Press Club, where several members of the CCB will be discussing what led up to our presence in Libya, and our government’s dereliction of duty in failing to send forces to aid Americans during the attacks. The report tells the real story of the Obama administration cover-up, which was designed to stifle free speech and distract from terrorism abroad during an election season by focusing on the influence of an Internet video, “The Innocence of Muslims.” This terror attack had its roots in President Obama’s own foreign policy.

President Obama and Hillary Clinton decided in 2011 to side with al-Qaeda-linked rebels in Libya and oust Muammar Qaddafi, who had previously given up his Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) and become an ally in the global war on terror. Despite his past cooperation, the Obama administration refused to engage in truce talks with Qaddafi. Admiral Chuck Kubic, who personally delivered the message of Qaddafi’s request for negotiations and a possible abdication, will be in attendance in support of the CCB. Mrs. Clinton ordered the Pentagon not to contact Qaddafi’s son, Saif, or other Libyan officials, after the United Nations passed Resolution 1973 creating a “No Fly Zone.”

The aid to the al-Qaeda-linked rebels ultimately created a failed state saturated with weapons, jihadis, and rival militias—the deadly and chaotic atmosphere that eventually contributed to the death of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other brave Americans. But Stevens himself, as U.S. envoy to the rebels, had coordinated with jihadis such as former Libyan Islamic Fighting Group leader Abdelhakim Belhadj.

The CCB report details how the Clinton State Department ignored over 600 requests for additional security for those serving in Libya. The Obama administration also overlooked multiple warnings of an impending attack, and then staged a cover-up after four Americans died.

In addition to the report, the CCB has a number of questions for the Select Committee on Benghazi, as well as for the Obama administration, including:

  • When, how, and why did the Obama administration and the Department of State decide to back the overthrow of the Muammar Qaddafi regime?
  • Which Congressional members were aware of the administration’s support for gun-running operations to Libyan al-Qa-eda-linked militias and later to Syrian jihadis?
  • Who specifically within the Obama administration was aware of any of the multiple warnings that indicated an Islamic terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi was likely or in potential planning stages before September 11, 2012?
  • Why was a Combatant Commanders conference called in Washington D.C. over the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks?
  • Obama administration officials have claimed that forces could not make it to Benghazi in time. Secretary Clinton never even asked for Libyan cross-border approval that night. How did the administration know when the attacks would end, or when it would be too late to send in military assets?

    Chris Stevens broke a deal that the State Department had in place with Turkey. The deal was to transfer heavy armaments to the Al QaedaISISISIL terrorists fighting Assad in Syria (funny how they arm foreign thugs while they try to disarm us at home). His refusal was the reason behind the attack. It cost him, and three others, their lives.

  • missieb2000

    What was it that Nixon did again? Where is the pit bull media now? Woodward and Burnstein care about a break in but let the guilty party have a d beside his name and no one cares??
    Four people dead. The cover up began before they were even cold. Where is the press on this one, or have they given up all pretenses of objectivity?

  • rebeccadewhirst

    This is treason and nobody is doing anything about it…where is Congress on this?

  • Frank de Varona

    Obama needs to be impeached and Hillary Clinton indicted for their treason, criminal negligence and dereliction of duty for what they did before, during, and after the Libyan civil war.

  • jdelaney3

    I’m appalled as much by Hitlery’s and Imam Obama’s dereliction of duty as I am by the willful ignorance gripping those on the hardcore Left who continue to support these thugs. Hitlery and Comrade Obama are but symptoms of what’s so terribly wrong with the Progressives/Democrats and this so-called republic. WE are the cause. WE reflect the values, or lack thereof, of our representatives. Sick!

  • BakkenBill

    Leadership is privy to political information that they won’t share with ‘we the people’ for reasons we will never know. One world government under the UN? Possibly. Muslim rule with Sahria Law? Possibly.
    Obama and Hillary trying to get as wealthy as the can through shady dealings? Possibly.
    There are numerous theories about their objective. They are only puppets. WHO is their puppet masters? Who in our society is so callus and unAmerican to allow four of our patriots to die, for political reason and try to cover it up, and why?
    We are in troubled times for sure. I am anxious to learn of Mr Gowdy’s findings, in hopes he blows the lid off of this completely.

    Thank you to “Accuracy” in Media for providing the right wing fantasy version of Benghazi on the same day the REPUBLICANS put out the fact-based, no-smoking-gun, Hillary-isn’t-to-blame real version of events. No one believes you except your fellow brainwashed morons, Kincaid.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    The Benghazi committee, which was only in existence in order to make Obama and Clinton look bad…found nothing. Deal with it.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    A committee dominated by Republicans, with access to facts and not right wing piffle, disagree with you. Move on to next phony “scandal”. This one has been completely exposed as nonsense.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    The press has correctly seen that the Benghazi non-scandal is nothing but right wing nonsense that just wasted four years and 7 million dollars on a witch hunt/smear campaign. When are you going to understand that?

  • Anthony Duhe

    Go back to your DARPA hole traitor.

  • Anthony Duhe

    Do you have more information on this deal?

  • IronChefSandwiches

    LOLOLOL You right wing nutjobs are entertaining as hell. I still have the facts on my side, doofus. Get used to saying President Clinton again!

  • Jack Parsons

    If there is no “smoking gun” why did Crooked Hillary cover up with the lie about the Benghazi attack being caused by a Youtube video that nobody watched?

  • jug

    Still just as full of shjt as you ever was!

  • IronChefSandwiches

    She didn’t. In the immediate aftermath of the attack, she, and others in the state department, quite correctly pointed out that the idiotic video in question was causing problems in the Muslim world, including in Libya. They mentioned that it might have been a factor. Within a couple of days, after gathering more intel, they held press conferences describing the events, who was probably responsible, and that it had, in fact, been a planned attack. Ever since, the right wing noise machine has been lying. The record is very clear on this question. They said what they knew at the time. When they knew more, they said more. Stop falling for this nonsense, Jack. This was nothing but a smear campaign that started before the bodies were cold.

  • Jack Parsons

    If you would bother to read the whitewash report it confirmed once again was that the administration lied about a ”spontaneous protest” allegedly sparked by an “anti-Muslim” video on YouTube, a lie that was repeated over and over again on talk shows by senior administration officials. There was no protest, of course, and the administration knew that all along, even as it was blatantly lying to the American people. “In the days and weeks after the attacks, the White House worked to pin all of the blame for their misleading and incorrect statements on officials within the intelligence community, but in reality, political operatives like Ben Rhodes and David Plouffe were spinning the false narrative and prepping Susan Rice for her interviews,” said Representative Peter Roskam (R-Ill.) about the findings. But compared with gun-running to known terrorists on the State Department’s terror list, lying to the American people seems rather trivial.

    One useful source of information for Americans is the Citizens’ Commission On Benghazi, which formally released its own report on Wednesday. Thanks to the efforts of Judicial Watch, Americans now also have declassified documents from the Pentagon showing that even as jihadists were killing U.S. officials in Libya, the Obama administration and its allies were showering support on al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood, and other hardcore jihadists in Syria hoping to create an Islamic State in Eastern Syria. Clinton knew about it, e-mails showed.

    Documents also show the administration was running guns to jihadists in Libya. Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, a key player in the illegal war on Libya and the subsequent Benghazi cover-up, was a fervent supporter of illegally arming jihadists on the State Department’s own list of terror organizations.

    Have your say

  • Jerry Heckert

    I wonder what Adm. James Lyons thinks of this report, in which the commission draws no conclusions, and fails to address the scenario that it was a planned attempt to facilitate a prisoner exchange, trading the blind sheik for an unharmed Chris Stevens, as asserted by the retired admiral, and suggested previously by the sheik’s son in Cairo. If this assertion has merit, the only conclusion that can be drawn is that the republican leadership was aware of the plan.

  • Bob Hein

    State issued a release in August where they were identified as the lead collecting weapons in Benghazi. ABC News interviewed contractors in Benghazi, who said they were collecting man-portable missile systems. The annex was located next to a warehouse complex using climate control (visible in open-source imagery).

  • missieb2000

    Sure. Four dead men, running guns to Isis, nothing to see here. You must be even more ignorant then they are. Still can’t own up to your mistakes. Typical.

  • Rich Schmidt

    You say nothing. Gowdy and even Dem members of the Select Committee say they found info no one else did. In fact they revealed the very basis for the independent FBI Investigation re Hillary’s handling of classified data. Seems that the Iron Chef can’t see what’s in font of him and on every news channel.

  • Larry Sparks

    Why do we arm our enemies to fight another enemy, this is just nonsense. Is there no longer any common sense at the State Department? Oh I forget, the State Department is now staffed by Obama’s hand picked Muslim advisors, now you understand why we are losing the war against ISIS!

  • missieb2000

    Four dead men is a ‘non’ story???? You would make a great crypt keeper. See if Hillary is hiring.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    THEY WEREN’T KILLED BY CLINTON, YOU RIDICULOUS PERSON! Nor did she order anyone to “stand down”. Nor did she ever lie about who the cause. We knew EVERYTHING about the Benghazi attack within a month or so. The last three years have been nothing but a right wing witch hunt. The GOP can’t win on the issues so they’ve spent the last 40 years or so lying to you idiots to keep you voting for them. And when you finally start to wake up to this, you turn to…Donald Trump. LOLOL

  • missieb2000

    Oh my sweet Jesus. I don’t run into a delusional phucktard very often, but you have set the bar. Had Mrs.bill or b.o. been on the job and not sent a stand down order to the people on the runway ready to help, four men would be alive.
    I apologize for all the big words. Have someone help you sound them out.

  • missieb2000

    I missed one. Rest assured, your incoherent babbling is now on a monitor, your ‘scathing’LOL seems to be quite popular, judging by the ripple of laughter when it went on the monitor.

    I post the dumbest blather on my monitors at work. People vote with quarters.
    So far your separate threads have raised almost $95 for the local animal shelter.
    Come on, help us out here. Post something even more unprepossessing if you can

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Yeah…sure you do…

  • missieb2000

    Didn’t do much. Come on, say something asinine for the shelter dogs. You may well beat the record.
