They all lied

When the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya first came under attack, the Obama administration stated that the main reason for its reluctance to attribute the attacks to coordinated terrorism was that there was an ongoing investigation into the matter and that it would be premature to comment until that investigation was completed.

This was in spite of the fact, of course, that the administration was quick to blame the attacks on an obscure film long before that investigation was completed and certainly long before the facts were in.

But now that more of the facts are coming in and more information from the ongoing investigation is becoming available, not only has it become clear that the truth bears little semblance to the story spun by administration officials, including the president, but that the horrid scenario that played out on Sept. 11 in Benghazi represents an entire litany of missteps, miscalculations, incompetence, and a shocking lack of attention to basic security measures to which U.S. personnel located in danger zones are entitled.

ATF retaliation against whistleblowers rampant

According to agents employed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) yesterday, retaliation against agency whistleblowers is now rampant and raging out of control.

One agent who blew the whistle on the ATF, leading to the disclosure that the Obama administration had planned and implemented Operation Fast and Furious, was fired.

Newly released emails show smoking gun on Libyan attacks

Newly released emails from Libya to the Obama administration in Washington show that President Obama knew from day one that the Libyan attacks that killed four U.S. diplomats were acts of terrorism and not a spontaneous reaction to an anti-Muslim film.

The emails were released Tuesday by the intelligence community in an effort to clear their reputations from the accusation by the White House that when the president stated the attacks were motivated by a film that insulted the prophet Muhammad, it was only passing along information provided by intelligence sources on the ground.

John Bolton, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, told Fox News Tuesday evening that none of the earliest emails from Libya said a word about the film but specifically noted that the consulate in Libya had been warned in advance that al Qaeda connected terrorism was on the rise in the region and that the lives of U.S. diplomats were in danger.

Facts show Romney was right on auto bailout

One of the more contentious moments during Monday's presidential debate between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney came as the president accused Romney of opposing all government assistance to the big auto companies during the 2008 crisis.

Romney vehemently denied the charge and urged viewers to check the facts for themselves.

A quick fact check on the claim reveals that Romney did, indeed, support a limited offer of government assistance to General Motors (GM) and Chrysler in the form of guarantees, although he opposed giving tax dollars directly to the two automakers.

Obama, Romney square off in final debate

In the final presidential debate of the 2012 election cycle, President Obama and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney squared off in Boca Raton, Fla. to discuss foreign policy issues.

The mainstream media and Democratic Party officials had already given the edge to Obama in this debate on the assumption that an incumbent president has a built in advantage in dealing with such issues, having four years to hone his skills in the foreign arena.

Conventional wisdom in this case, however, is questionable, given a series of gaffes, failures, and misstatements that have characterized the Obama team's response to a massacre at the U.S. consulate in Libya...

Tonight After the Final Debate...

Just a heads up that tonight after the final presidential debate between Mitt Romney and Barack Obama, I will publish a complete run-down of the discussion at the Examiner.

I thought this was important enough to merit attention and reporting, up to the minute.

Romney has a golden opportunity to score some major points on Libya in particular, but also the Fast and Furious scandal. I hope he will bring it up as an example of Obama's failed foreign policy and make the pledge that he will immediately, if elected, rescind the executive privilege declaration that has prevented Congress from getting all of the information it needs in its investigation.

We shall see.

Some news to report

Martin Christian Ministries.

Thank you.

Administration changes Libyan story again

In a depiction of what one U.S. senator called "a case study in failure," the Obama administration has once again changed its story on what took place in Libya in the days and hours leading up to the deadly attack that left a U.S. ambassador and three other diplomats dead.

U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., stated over the weekend that the conflicting stories on the Libyan massacre represent an "orchestrated changing narrative" with selective disclosures on the portions of intelligence reports that appear to support the administration's claim that the attacks were spurred by outrage over an anti-Muslim film produced in the United States.
