I recently added a new blog to my blogroll. It is called Moral Matters.org. and there is certainly some terrific writing going on over there!
The following blog post, entitled Obama’s greater lie: And a likely motive for his Benghazi cover-up scandal lie contains one of the best possible, explanations as to why that obscure You Tube video was used as an excuse and trotted out there by Ambassador Rice as a "lead up" to the Benghazi terrorist attack that killed Ambassador Stevens, former SEALS Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and Foreign Services Officer, Sean Smith.
This is a Talk Wisdom Reports - You Decide kind of post.
In addition to pasting the entire post from Moral Matters, I am including some commentary in between with links to previous posts here at Talk Wisdom as well as posts, articles, commentary from others, which I think helps boost the argument being shared by author Nathan M. Bickel at Moral Matters.org.
Here is a copy of the post:
Obama’s greater lie: And a likely motive for his Benghazi cover-up scandal lie
November 17, 2012 Nathan M. Bickel[Important update!! See:
It is the contention of some that Obama lied to the American people when he repeatedly took the credit for Osama Bin Laden’s [supposed] demise. This author says, “Supposed,” for three reasons. First, there were previous reports of Bin Laden’s [previous] death. Secondly, Obama and his operatives provided no substantial forensic evidence that the Pakistan US Seal raid had actually and conclusively taken down Bin Laden. Thirdly, Obama dispensed with the (supposed) Al-Qaeda’ leader’s body, speedily and in such a manner, as to deny any future investigation and / or confirmation of the Obama assassination narrative.
[See these posts and links for information regarding Osama Bin Laden's death years ago: Talk Wisdom: Is Zawahiri Big Kahuna Now? and Hot Air where the authenticity of tapes of Osama in 2007 were suspicious. There is also the comment from Benazir Bhutto prior to her assassination that Bin Laden was dead.]
Then, once all this (supposedly) took place according to Obama’s directive, America and the world began to hear Obama remind them, that he had tracked down the world’s most infamous terrorist and sent him on his eternal journey. In the backdrop of all of this Obama narrative, has been Obama claiming that Bin Laden’s Al-Qaeda’ terrorist organization was on the run and barely surviving.
It is, no wonder then, that Obama would spread the flagrant lie of an anti Islamic video and spontaneous uprising, precipitating the Benghazi terrorist attack, which left 4 Americans dead; among whom, was Ambassador, Chris Stevens. Obama’s directive to spread this flagrant video [narrative] lie, was so imperative, that Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, Sec. of Defense Leon Panetta and UN Ambassador Susan Rice, all stood by their Pied Piper, White House occupier, liar.
We have now learned that CNN is responsible for putting forth egregious propaganda… on video. It is the kind of propaganda that, in the past, has been blamed for – you guessed it – violence in the Middle East. Like in the year 2000, it involves the exploitation of a young Palestinian boy.]
This gave the Obama presidential campaign time to speed itself to Election Day before the truth about Obama’s attempted Benghazi scandal cover-up would soon become more media, widespread.[Note - Hot Air asks: Was Obama briefed that Benghazi was a terror attack before Rice went on TV? Also see: Gateway Pundit: HE LIED… Obama Was Told Benghazi Was Terrorist Attack Not YouTube Protest Within 72 Hours. Also see: TownHall: Chambliss on Benghazi Hearing: ‘So Obvious’ It Was a Terrorist Attack]
And, so, the greater lie in the background of the smokescreen video lie, [supposedly] sparking (causing) a spontaneous Muslim terrorist attack on the Benghazi consulate, is the lie which Obama desired to protect. But, why? Is it because (according to some reports) Obama wanted to keep under wraps his secretive “gun running” activity to Islamic terrorists, among whom are multiplying Al-Qaeda’ terrorists, – a major contradiction to his deceptive Bin Laden kill, narrative? Why won’t Obama be forthcoming? Also, didn’t Obama say in the past that if the political winds would change, he would stand by his Muslim brothers?
[See: Talk Wisdom: Benghazi Research: Obama Arming al-Qaeda – Reason for Libya Cover Up? We Think It’s Even Bigger (New Maps of CIA Annex Included)]
[How strange it was that Bin Laden's body was disposed of in the sea within 24 hours of his (supposed) death. This was not enough time to get results of a DNA test. Also, no photos were allowed to the media or public. What's wrong with that picture? At least the Bush Administration allowed photos to be shown of dictator Saddam Hussein's capture, trial, death sentence, and his ultimate demise by hanging. Why all the mystery surrounding Osama Bin Laden's demise?][UPDATE: Fake Osama bin Laden Burial at Sea on Super Aircraft Carrier with Crew of Over 6,000: No Sailors Saw It] H/T Commie Blaster.com
Those who love traditional and patriotic America: It is time to cease giving Barack Hussein Obama the benefit of any doubt. There is much now known about Obama’s background and loyalties, than to seriously think of him (anymore) as a loyal American. He’s lied repeatedly to the American people from the beginning, about his real identity. And, this whole Benghazi cover-up scandal illustrates that Obama continues on his pathological lying path.
[See: The Ulsterman Report: Barack Obama’s Benghazi LIES-LIES-LIES-LIES-LIES…]
The following has been found on the web. It offers a very likely motive for Obama’s continued Benghazi cover-up scandal. I believe that no other scenario best fits, as to explain why our White House occupier has not been honest and forthright with the American people:
According to sources in the State Department and the CIA, and intercepted communications from the Muslim Brotherhood, Obama “staged” the attack in Benghazi in order to create a monumental “October Surprise” that would guarantee him re-election.
[See Talk Wisdom: Video: Benghazi Attack Was Botched Kidnapping To Trade Blind Sheik!! [Updates]]
[Recall the video where Ty Woods father said that "shaking hands with BHO was like shaking hands with a dead fish" and that BHO wouldn't look him in the eye when he said in a little boy's schoolyard voice, "I'm sorry for your loss." It is because this brave ex-Navy SEAL hero ignored the "stand down" orders and went in to save those being attacked! Watergate took a year to come to fruition before Nixon resigned. I pray to God that Benghazi-Gate will get BHO impeached and removed from the White House!!]
Yes, you read that right, and no, I’m not making this up. Obama, we now know, is and has been working with the Muslim Brotherhood secretly to engineer the release of the “Blind Sheik,” Omar Abdel Rahman, the mastermind behind the 1993 World Trade Center attack.
In Obama’s October Surprise, he intentionally set up the consulate to have no security so that Chris Stevens could be kidnapped, and held for ransom by Al-Qaeda (and the Muslim Brotherhood). Then, several days before the election, the plan was to trade Chris Stevens for the Blind Sheik, making himself look like a hero, and all but guaranteeing re-election.
This was one of the top reasons why Obama was so insistent on the Muslim Brotherhood getting $1.2 Billion in U.S. Aid. They were to have a primary role in getting Obama re-elected. That is why, even though they knew days before the attack that it was going to occur, no effort was made to bolster security. It was intended to be non-existent. The Libyan security forces were intended to quietly slip into the night when the attack began. And they did, just as planned. That is why, even though 2 C-130U gunships, which were built SPECIFICALLY for this kind of attack, and which could have saved the lives of our people there and were a mere 45 minutes away, were never scrambled at any time during the attack.
There was to be no resistance whatsoever. That is why there were not one, but TWO armed drones flying over the consulate during the conflagration… our CIA operatives on the ground were painting targets because they knew air cover was available. That is why, even though requesting support and backup three times, their requests were NOT ignored, but were intentionally, specifically DENIED three times, and they were told to “stand down,” which basically means to “surrender.” That was part of Obama’s plan.
They were not to fight back. That would potentially undermine the kidnapping effort and cause unnecessary “complications.” That is why, even though the CIA operatives and ex-Navy Seals were on the ground, providing real-time reports, and even though they were “lighting up” the source of the mortars attacking the compound with lasers, no gunships or support ever came. They weren’t supposed to resist.
[Note: According to Wikipedia - only 9 attackers died. A FreeRepublic commentator wrote that 10 died. Need more research on this to determine the exact number.]
That wasn’t “part of the plan.” It also wasn’t part of the plan for one of the CIA operatives to intentionally defy Obama’s orders, and who rescued the body of Sean Smith and then stood up again, and engaged the enemy who was attacking American soil. It was supposed to be “clean.” Quick. Efficient.
[We are getting closer, due to General Petraeus' testimony, to finding out that it was someone at the White House who must have uttered the stand down order! SEAL Father: Who Denied Military Aid During Benghazi Attack? ]
Kidnap the Ambassador and get out. Then Save The Day in the “nick of time.” They didn’t factor in a tiny group of highly trained ex-Navy Seals/CIA operatives… American Patriots and heroes. Even though they eventually lost their lives in the firefight, they managed to employ the full measure of their skills, and took out over 80 attackers in the process… which enraged the attackers, who were led to believe that they would encounter no resistance.
THAT is why Ambassador Stevens was raped (sodomized), murdered, and dragged through the streets.
[See: Talk Wisdom: Breaking News About Ambassador Stevens (Warning: Graphic details) and especially conservative gay blogger at Hillbuzz who reported why the lefties and the media denied that this actually happened to Stevens.]
In their warped minds, they believed that they had been betrayed by the U.S. yet again. They believed that Obama was their friend. They believed that they were going to get their beloved Blind Sheik back. And yet, here were 80 of their own… dead by American hands.
Obama was asked directly in an interview if he denied their request for assistance, he refused to answer, and instead droned on with a canned response promising to “bring those responsible to justice.
“Former CIA and State Dept. personnel are coming out now with damning evidence that indicts President Obama, and reveals the truth about what is going on. Hillary Clinton, who is now openly laying the blame at the feet of the President, after falling on her sword in a premature show of loyalty for the Administration.
The “Video” defense was carefully crafted WEEKS in advance, to explain the attack. If this doesn’t outrage you, If you are not moved enough to contact your congressman about this, you are not worthy of your citizenship.

We the People: Obama’s Taqqiya Unravels
Copy of post:

Nonie Darwish comments below “Both Sharia and socialism are united in their envy of Western society and need to change it.”
Here I disagree with Ms. Darwish in that Obama doesn’t envy Western society he has done his best to apologize for it and loathes it.
If not why the Muslim bowing tour apologizing for America’s exceptionalism?
That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message. The American ThinkerBy Nonie DarwishI have never entertained the idea that Obama was a Muslim and always believed he was a socialist. But Obama’s behavior over the last four years regarding Islam has convinced me that Obama has a Socialist/Islamic centered worldview — a combination that is not uncommon in many parts of the Muslim world.
Having been a journalist in Egypt for six years in the seventies, I have witnessed socialism with an Islamic twist to be a popular political ideology, especially amongst Arab journalists and intellectuals. Socialism, and even communism, have managed to survive in the ruthless Islamic political system as an alternative to full-fledged Sharia.
The two ideologies have blended together in cases including the Baath Party in Syria and Iraq and socialist regimes in Egypt and Yemen. One major difference between the two ideologies is that Islam uses Allah, while socialism uses atheism, to fight the God of Christianity. ( complete article follows)
Free democracies, such as the United States, are alien to Islam and socialism both because they regard government as a servant of the people and hold that human rights are granted by God and not by government or the code of Sharia.
Both Sharia and socialism are united in their envy of Western society and need to change it. That is why Obama has become the savior of both Islam and socialism. He embodies both ideologies. The claim that Obama is a Christian was a silly joke, but a necessary lie for the greater cause of changing America to fit the goals of both creeds.
Obama became the One, the savior of both Islam and socialists. To do that, Obama had to deny who he really was, which explains why his actions and words have never added up. At the recent Alfred E. Smith Catholic Charity dinner speech, Obama did not seem to be just kidding when he said that Romney uses his middle name Mitt and “I wish I could use my middle name.” Obama was referring, of course, to his Islamic middle name of Hussein. In Obama’s mind, he was not ashamed for having deceived America — he blamed America for putting him in the position of having to deny his true pride in his middle name.
That brings us to an important discovery by WND in an article by Jerome Corsi titled: “Obama’s Ring: ‘There is no God But Allah’.” The article featured close-up photos of a ring still worn by Obama today in the White House, one that he has worn since his visit to Pakistan as a young man. The ring, which later also became his wedding ring, has very tiny and discrete Arabic calligraphy that means nothing to Americans, but to Arabic-speaking people like myself and Dr. Mark Gabriel, means quite a lot. Such Islamic calligraphy is commonly found throughout the gold markets of the Muslim world. I am not a writing expert, but I can clearly see on the ring the word ‘La Ilaha IllaAllah. (“There is no god but god.”)’ Such a sentence in Arabic has a lot of the letters A and L which in Arabic are simply a straight line like the number one.
The only explanation for Obama’s exciting ring secret is that he is a closet Muslim and feels that he can serve Islam best if he denies his being a Muslim for the purpose of a higher aspiration to serve the Muslim world from the White House, in Islamic terms the “higher jihad.” Obama has no problem whatsoever in lying for the sake of “Hope and Change” since lying about being a Muslim in a majority non-Muslim country is allowed under Islam. Lying for the purpose of jihad (known as “taqqiya”) is not only allowed, but an obligation to be proud of and even serves as a reason to blame the enemies of Islam for one’s lies. Sharia law states: “Lying is obligatory if the purpose is obligatory.” Muslim clerics have no problem in lying not just to the non-Muslim world but even to the Muslim masses, since Islam also allows Muslims to lie in order to bring Muslims together in harmony and friendship.
That brings us to the current debacle in Libya, which can only be understood if we grasp Obama’s worldviews as regards the “Muslim World.” Like the so-called ‘moderate’ Muslims, Obama insists Islam in and of itself has nothing to do with terrorism and blames previous American foreign policy (along with Israel), for Islamic anger. Obama narrowed down the problem of Islamism to Al Qaeda while embracing other Islamic groups, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, as moderate. In the process, Obama dismissed the Brotherhood’s long history of terror, which in fact gave birth to Al Qaeda and hundreds of other terror groups. Nothing in Obama’s world is the fault of Islam, which is why he ordered the Fort Hood massacre to be classified as “workplace violence” and not Islamic terrorism.
Obama believes that he uniquely understands the Muslim world and will bring about a new era of peace with Islam, at least during his administration. There are strong rumors in Egypt that when Obama met with the Egyptian foreign minister, he confided in him that he was a Muslim and that he would assist the Islamic cause in America after he passes the Health Care Bill.
But as president of the United States, Obama was caught in a quagmire between protecting American lives and appearing loyal to Islam. Placing American Marines at US consulates in dangerous terror-infested Islamic countries created the possibility of a bloody confrontation between American security and Islamists. That would discredit Obama’s attempt to separate Islam from terrorism. Also, if Obama confronted militant Muslim jihadists in Islamic countries, his entire claim to opening a new page in American/Islamic relations would fall apart. He would then be no different from his predecessors, Bush or Reagan.
That explains why the demands for American security by U.S. ambassador Stevens went unanswered. Obama did not want to deal with the possibility that American Marines would shoot at Muslim attackers in order to save American lives.
According to Sharia, it is a capital crime for a Muslim individual or leader to shoot at fellow Muslims — even Islamists — for the purpose of protecting Americans. That would make Obama a violator of Sharia and an apostate. If Obama considers himself a Muslim and wears an Islamic ring, then he must have had a very hard time deciding on how to protect the consulate without killing Muslim attackers. His solution? Settling for the lesser of two evils: getting Muslims, in the form of Libyan security, to guard the property and in this way, forcing Muslims to shoot other Muslims in order to defend the consulate. But that plan was useless because even the Muslim guards had to follow Sharia, and ran away and left the Americans to be killed rather than violate Sharia themselves by killing other Muslims. Obama gambled with the lives of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others and left them as sacrificial lambs rather than violate the dictates of Sharia.
The Benghazi fiasco merely underlined Obama’s failed promises of peace with the Muslim world. The murder of Americans at the hand of Muslims did not even get us an apology from any Muslim leader or cleric. No one is taking responsibility, not even Obama himself.
With the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Islamists and jihadists made it clear to us that they could care less about Obama, his appeasement, his apologies, and even his Islam. They could not put jihad on hold or restrain themselves on behalf of an American president who wanted to help build a better image of Islam. They could not play the game with Obama and refrain from jihad even during the Obama presidency. The jihadists in effect declared that Obama, Muslim or not, is just another American president who should not be trusted. No leader, Muslim or not, can get away from the wrath of Islamic jihad, and that is why angry Islamic mobs were recently seen torching Obama’s effigy.
It is unfortunate that it took a tragedy in Libya and the lives of decent Americans to prove that Obama is unfit to be president of the USA. Obama has fooled many Americans for four years and that is why, when he sees the face of Mitt Romney, he is reminded of a reality that he could not fully eliminate. Obama knows the game, and his presidency, is over.
