Benghazi Blues

It has now been 15 days since the attack on the Benghazi consular compound, which led to the death of the US Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans. The Obama Administration insists it was “a terrorist attack.”

At least today. Over the past two weeks the administration has kept changing its story every few days, jumping from announcing it to be a “complex attack” and an “act of terror” to later claiming it was just spontaneous, then going back and denouncing it again as terror and blaming al-Qaeda, or maybe someone else...

…Obama began discussing US ambassador Christopher Stevens. On September 11, he was killed in Benghazi, Libya.  Obama inverted truth like he always does.

He claimed Stevens went there last year to help Libyans “cope with violent conflict, care for the wounded, and craft a vision for the future in which the rights of all Libyans would be respected.”
“And after the revolution, he supported the birth of a new democracy, as Libyans held elections, and built new institutions, and began to move forward after decades of dictatorship.”

Fact check
Stevens was an imperial front man. He urged violent intervention. He supported NATO’s killing machine throughout months of slaughter. He participated in Libya’s destruction.
He helped turn Africa’s most developed country into a charnel house. Tens of thousands were murdered. Multiples more were injured. Many more were displaced.   Mostly civilians were harmed. NATO attacks willfully targeted them. At issue was replacing another independent government with a puppet one.

Casualties inflicted doing it aren’t counted. Obama claimed Stevens “was killed in the city he helped to save.” He bears responsibility for destroying it and much of Libya. He helped install its puppet government.

Obama continued extolling a war criminal. It takes one to know one. He blamed terrorists and Al Qaeda for killing him. Again he lied like he always does…

…One attack in Benghazi, Libya, left the US consulate ablaze, unexpectedly trapping US Ambassador Christopher Stevens who succumbed to smoke inhalation. Despite the attacks, and the subsequent media circus and staged rallies to depict Libya’s client regime as “disbanding” terrorist militias, the fact remains that vast terrorist networks stretching from Libya to Syria are still fully armed, funded, and covertly backed by the very corporate-financier interests that sold the last decade of “War on Terror” to the West.

In addition to a myriad of staged events to portray a divide between the West and its terrorist proxies, there are also sophomoric and desperate attempts throughout the corporate-media to rewrite the Syrian narrative as public awareness grows, and support for Western destabilization under the guise of “humanitarian causes” collapses.
One such attempt was published in the Washington Post in a piece titled, “Among Assad’s opponents, moderation reigns,” where David Pollock of the Washington Institute for Near East Policy attempts to argue that Syria’s “opposition” is overwhelmingly moderate, with sectarian extremists being an exception to the rule, based on a poll conducted by the International Republication Institute.

However, Pollock’s think-tank, the Washington Institute, is in fact a Wall Street pro-war think-tank, lined by notorious warmongering frauds and Neo-Cons including Richard Perle, Max Kampelman, US Ambassador to Israel Samuel Lewis, accused war criminal Henry Kissinger, George Shultz, and James Woolsey, all signatories of the now infamous Project for a New American Century (PNAC), and all signatories of numerous letters calling for war with both Libya and Syria
