Unreal. Obama Campaign Says Benghazi Was Not a Foreign Policy Failure



For the first time in over thirty years a US ambassador was murdered on 9-11.

Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens warned the Obama Administration on the day of his death of increasing violence in Benghazi. Barack Obama said the ambassador’s murder was “not optimal.”

Obama Campaign spokesperson Stephanie Cutter says Benghazi attacks were not a foreign policy failure.

    More deaths is more optimal though, didn’t he concede that?

    If this is not the definition of failure. .what is?

  • SeniorD

    A comprehensive, coherent policy applying to other soveriegn countries is needed first. Reagan’s Berlin Wall proclaimation “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall” or building a 600 ship Navy are the best examples of clear Foreign Polocies that come to mind. Since the inept Oboo-boo regime can neither put together anything comprehensive or coherent, and since Oboo-boo himself considers this country to be subservient to every other country, there can’t be any Foriegn Policy failures.

    Cutter’s just given Romney a huge gift — what an amazing spot this will make!!!!

    Obama’s entire foreign policy is a failure, except it isn’t a failure to Obama, because he is accomplishing exactly what he wants to accomplish. He has changed the entire landscape of northern Africa, other parts of Africa, and the Middle East into a safe haven for Al Qeada.

    Obama Doctrine: Benghazi Guards Never Taught How to Shoot Guns

    One of the members of the “Special Protection Unit” guarding the Benghazi consulate states that the unit had never been given shooting lessons.

    A 33-year-old individual referred to only has “Ali” was part of the February 17 Brigade’s four-man team guarding the Benghazi consulate on Sept 11. He says he and his team members had received “light” and “theoretical” training inside the consulate from time to time, but never experience shooting firearms.

    He says they occasionally received “practical lessons,” but these lessons were never accompanied by the “practical training” that might have left them better prepared them to do what they were asked to do.

    Ali and his fellow guards paint of a picture of being abandoned at their posts. They say that after the consulate was attacked in June 2012, they requested more weapons and body protection. Yet they say they never even received handguns “or the weapons [they] requested.”

    They weren’t even provided helmets. [………………….]

    Cutter is right. Not a failure .. A DISASTER!!

  • RickZ

    Owebama’s been redefining ‘success’ his whole life, so I can see where he thinks his foreign policy is a great ‘success’.

    Oh, and by the way, Cupcake, Benghazi was an Act of War. So just who is politicizing this ‘tragedy’?

  • BuddyG

    Benghazi wasn’t a foreign failure . . . for al Qaeda.

    It takes a very special DITZ to be a spokesperson for the democrap party. i wonder if Stephanie believes this BS herself.

    N.Y. SLIMES

    LIBYA AND BENGHAZI Both candidates will come ready for a fight on this topic, but the question is whether it is the right fight. Mr. Obama already admitted mistakes on “The Daily Show With Jon Stewart” and promised to get to the bottom of them, but the White House has been less than transparent about what kind of warnings filtered up from the intelligence agencies before the attack on the consulate, and whether there was a way that American security forces could have arrived sooner, perhaps in time to save some of the American lives. No doubt the argument will focus on a narrower issue: why the administration stuck so long to its story that this was a protest against a film that turned into something worse, rather than a preplanned attack by insurgents. For Mr. Romney, the task is to show that the Benghazi attack was symptomatic of bigger failings in the Middle East, a road he started down in the last debate, but an argument he never completed.

  • Yrral Dleifsarb

    I’ve often wondered how Zero’s hiring process selects for dishonesty. Do candidates have to demonstrate their willingness to blatantly lie during their interviews? Are they asked “Are you a liar?” And what is the “correct” answer to that question? The mind boggles.

  • Remember when you were a kid, and every new school year, there was always this kid who instigated fights on the playground, but then once the activity heated up, they would hightail it out of the situation with an excuse? … obama.

    Libya’s president says embassy attack planned by al-Qaeda

    The attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed four Americans and ten Libyans was the work of “experienced masterminds” that had been planned well in advance, “I think this was al-Qaeda,” Mohamed al-Magarief, the Libyan president, said to Al Jazeera in an interview with Hoda Abdel-Hamid.

    Fort Hood hasn’t been called a Terrorist Attack, families of victims are STILL fighting for them to say it was.

    Now, can you only imagine what this president would have said and done if he were Bush during 9/11/01 If Obama can lie and lie over Libya and send his people out to lie, after Americans were killed and our flag burned on American soil and left there to be murdered and their response in NOT A TERROR ATTACK but a Movie.

    Dear God, we will all be done for, will he leave us All to hang out to dry. I cannot trust team Obama or Obama to secure this nation. To Protect this Nation because if this is how he handle an Act of Terror, we are done.

    just a sample:

    Breaking The War Mentality
    by Barack Obama
    March 10, 1983

    [In 1933 the German establishment thought it could use Hitler to restore a modicum of order to the confused and confusing Weimar Republic. In fact, Hitler did strengthen the German establishment, but not exactly in the way the bankers and businessmen had wanted; and now, fifty years later, it is clear who was using whom. Nevertheless, the Western World did not complain in 1933 because Hitler, though a fascist and a totalitarian, was seen, like countless American puppet dictators today, as someone who leaves the established order in place.]

    November 10, 2009

    Thank you former President George W.
    Bush and former First Lady Laura Bush

    [As we will always be grateful for what George and Laura Bush did this
    week, with no media attention, when they very quietly went to Ft. Hood
    and met personally with the families of the victims of this terrorist attack.

    FOR HOURS.

    The Bushes went and met privately with these families for
    HOURS, hugging them, holding them, comforting them.

    If there are any of you out there with any connection at all to the
    Bushes, we implore you to give them our thanks…you tell them that
    a bunch of gay Hillary guys in Boystown, Chicago were wrong about
    the Bushes…and are deeply, deeply sorry for any jokes we told about
    them in the past, any bad thoughts we had about these good, good people.

    You may be as surprised by this as we are ourselves, but from this day forward George W. and Laura Bush are now on the same list for us as the Clintons, the Palins, and other political figures we keep in our hearts and never allow anyone to badmouth.

    Criticize their policies academically and intelligently and discuss the
    Bush presidency in historical and political terms…but you mess with
    the Bushes personally and, from this day forward, you’ll answer to
    us.

    We hope someday to be able to thank George W. and Laura in person
    for all they’ve done, and continue to do. They didn’t have to head to
    Ft. Hood. That was not their responsibility.

    The Obamas should have done that.

    But didn’t.

    Wouldn’t.

    Thank goodness George W. is still on his
    watch, with wonderful Laura at his side.]

    Obama administration warned of possible
    attacks, but failed to take precautions ….

    [Sources close to U.S. President Barack Obama’s administration revealed that White House officials apparently received warnings that there were threats made to attack as many as seven U.S. missions in the Middle East, on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, as early as September 4. Sources also revealed that additional warnings were received a few days later, with similar information, but that all of the warnings were largely ignored by the administration. Normally when such warnings are received by the administration, the threat level is raised at U.S. installations around the world. At this point, there is no evidence that the Obama administration communicated the warnings with Consular officials in Libya or Egypt in advance of attacks that took place Monday in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo, Egypt, leaving the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead, with eight others wounded, including some U.S. military personnel.]

    Not a failure of foreign policy.

    Right.

    Mitt should ask oBama if he agrees with Cutter’s assessment tonite.
    I bet it would catch him flat footed.
