Yet more refreshing honesty about Benghazi!

I am so thankful we have an honest president and transparent administration. Every day I am pleasantly surprised with more revelations of truth and openness. Take this new one about Benghazi, for example.

As reported by the stellar Catherine Herridge at Fox News, Former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell is facing accusations from Republicans that he misled lawmakers about the Obama administration’s role in crafting the bogus storyline that a protest gone awry was to blame for the deadly Benghazi attack.

Republicans on the Senate Intelligence Committee allege Morell insisted the talking points were sent to the White House for informational purposes, and not for their input — but emails, later released by the administration, showed otherwise.

In late 2012, Morell met with Senators Kelly Ayotte, John McCain and Lindsey Graham. At the time the senators said Morell blamed the FBI for cutting references to al-Qaida to prevent compromising an ongoing criminal investigation. In recent interview, Graham said, “I called the FBI. They went ballistic. Within 24 hours, his statement was changed where he admitted the CIA had done it.”

Since retiring from the CIA, Morell’s resume continues to be enhanced. He’s been awarded high-profile assignments within the administration, including the NSA review panel and the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board (which I find oxymoronic to the max). He is now a paid TV commentator for CBS News, has a book deal, and works for Beacon Global Strategies, whose founder, Philippe Reines. has been described as Clinton’s “principal gatekeeper.”

In an email to Fox News on Feb. 13, Morell said: “I stand behind what I have said to you and testified to Congress about the talking point issue. Neither the Agency, the analysts, nor I cooked the books in any way.”

And in Washington DC-speak that means “I DID cook the books.” I wonder if Michael Morell and Lois Lerner hang out together? And how interesting this Morell fella has been drawn into the Hillary Clinton orbit.

One thing is for certain, I am so thankful we have a president and an administration who are so transparent and honest about these issues. It really allows the liberal progressive media to focus on far more important issues like that mean ol’ New Jersey Governor Christie and traffic lanes being closed. You know, I just sleep so much better at night knowing people like President Obama and Hillary Clinton, such highly principled and forthright leaders, are looking after me and my country. Thanks to Obama’s insightful leadership, Libya is now a stable functioning democracy and we can always just find another ambassador.

Yeah, riiight.

I get asked a lot about the 2016 presidential election and possible candidates. I try to steer people back to the 2014 midterms, which I think are far more important. However, I will share one insight — Hillary Clinton will not be running. Why do I believe that? One word: Benghazi. The lies, deceit, and cover-up are not going away and the scrutiny will be withering. Emotional protestations to the tune of “what difference at this point does it make” will only exacerbate the issue.

Benghazi is slow-drip water torture that will eventually bring about political death — just as it brought about literal death — for many.

    Bravo Allan! Putting our nation’s concerns in perspective.

  2. I think Hillary will run, because they count on the majority of her voting base not even remembering, or caring about Benghazi. The average person can’t even remember what the heck happened in Benghazi already. She will have a lot of appeal to women, because she is a woman, welfare recipients, blacks in the NAACP, immigrants and their illegal families, unions, and people earning minimum wage. Do not get over confident! We have a lot of stupid people in this country. Obama was voted in twice!

    • Not this union member! The union may tell me how to vote, but they have been wasting their breath & paper!!!! I will not & have not voted for a liberal bastard!!!

      • Good for you Gerry, but for everyone of you, an “enlightened union member”, there are 25 who aren’t! I live in Michigan, and we have So many brainwashed democrats, it really is mind boggling and sickening! People I really thought for themselves, does not exist here! All one has to do is look at our state, our cities and the many years of recession via the democrats and unions. Sadly, we have a class of “blue collar elitist” that could care less about anyone else, you see they are or have paid the unions to buy politicians!

    • They, the majority, didn’t know what Benghazi was in the first place and sure weren’t interested enough to find out. When asked what Benghazi is many college students have no idea. Some think maybe it’s a man or whaaatever.
      Hopefully the fact that Hillary doesn’t have the “charisma” Obama has will help keep her at bay.

    • I am a woman I will not vote for her I would just as soon spit in her face or maybe throw up never have liked this murdering lier

      • I feel the same way, but we are conservative women, reading an Allen West blog………..WE ARE NOT THE MAJORITY. We need to hit hard on why Hillary is not in their court. She is not even a decent example of a real woman. She might ‘love ’em’ but she doesn’t LIKE them. She doesn’t even wear a dress. Ugh.

You Americans cannot be silent or repeat the administration’s bogus claptrap about a anti-Muslim video being the cause of the attack. Obama refuses to admit either he or Valarie Jarrett issued the order to stand down.

    • trey gowdy is a rising star in the GOP….this guy is tough as nails, and don’t take no crap from obama and his keystone cop administration…….we need more like him!!

    • Valerie Jarrett or DHS Director, something is going on between these two just watch the way Obama looks her up and down, maybe that’s the reason for her not being fired

  4. Benny Holck summarized the current state of our country perfectly. Too many dumb voters with short memories. If there was any way we could work the facts about Benghazi into the next episode of The Bachelor then maybe enough voters would be concerned about it.

    Here is a question that nobody has been able to answer yet: Why is it that some of the congressmen who have been most vocal about the cover-up (Darrell Issa and Jason Chaffetz etc.) have not co-sponsored House Res. 36 to create a select committee on Benghazi? Do they not agree that this is the best way to get answers once and for all?

  5. We unfortunately continue to expect two things from the liberals that do not exist: morality and accountability. Time after time we nibble at the fringes of their sinful acts because we see deceit, lies, blame and corruption. But none of those things bother liberals as they are nothing but interchangeable endless words, the domain of their rhetorical existence. Our reality simply does not exist for Obama and his minions. We must expose the deeper, evil morality and aversion to responsibility that drives the liberal movement and stop wasting time hoping that the non-existing referees will change the call. America is not going to get a replay and there is very little time left.

  6. I hope you’re right about Hillary not running. Keep the heat turned on!
    2016 is two years away. People can get very lukewarm and indifferent in 32 months.

  7. I agree that 2014 is the key to the future of the USA. Without a majority in the house and senate the administration, hillary and the left are free to do as they please. They can lie, spy and threaten with impunity. I just am torn by what is the correct course for ’14 is. I am in the West, Cruz, Paul…etc. camp of getting rid if the old guard professional politicians. I don’t however want that to cost us this critical election with a bunch of in fighting. Mccain, grahm, mcconnel and boehner make me sick but they are re-electable I just can’t figure out how to remove them from their positions of power if they get re-elected and that would be a deal breaker.

  8. I think we need to have hearings into the loyalty and competency of government workers and people who seemingly are using the government to enrich themselves at any price to the nation and taxpayers

    • Surely not every government worker with knowledge of this nonsense is corrupt. Surely some of them must see what’s going on and care enough to blow the whistle, tell the truth. Surely.

      • Ask yourself these questions?

        (1) How can I support my family once I blow the whistle?

        (2) Who can I trust with my life and my family’s life?

        (3) Who can I trust to keep me alive?

        (4) Who can I trust to protect my family if something happens to me?

        (5) If I survive, will I ever be able to find a job again to take care of my family?

        That’s just 5 questions. Can you imagine how many questions go through a person mind?

        Do you know anyone in the Government that you trust that much?

      • Well said and on the money. With Hillary having more than 30 people done away with and several by barry no one is safe after they blow the whistle

      • People still have ethics, but they have to ask themselves a lot of hard questions now before they take a risk. Look at what happen to the guy (sorry I can’t remember his name), that blew the whistle on “Fast and Furious”. I would go to Tray Gowdy, but what happens after that? People don’t realize what happens to individuals that come forward with “Our Country the way it is today. It is so sad and I don’t know if we will ever be able to clean “Our Country” of the individuals that have caused all of this.

      • May 16th 1.8 million people will descend upon D C Demanding that barry, biden holder harry reid, pelosi etc step down. It is called Operation American Spring. It is designed and ROE’s to be peaceful and no weapons. It will start out that way. Whose to say what it will end up being. Militia’s from all over the country will go and the results?
        I care not to speculate

      • I’m very aware of Mary 16th. They are adamant about it being peaceful and we can only pray that it will be. Who know what our Government will do and if they choose to do something, I’m sure the whole Country will come together. Americans have the right to demand our Government do what they are supposed to do.

      • I wonder what barry will do? He will probably call out the DHS army and the national guard. force people to leave and start The Ukraine scenario

      • That is a big question. He has loaded up the DHS and other Departments and that is the ones we know about. I thought the National Guard was under the control of States. I think if he tries that, he will be surprised of the results. I believe the “American People” will support their Country before they support someone taking over “Our Country”. I could be wrong, but that is how I feel.

      • You are correct. I hope more and more people will join. We can pray that all goes well and everyone is safe.
        Answer to your response above. The Generals will answer for their actions!

      • Can you say “martial law”? I’m sure Barry would love to set that upon us…mission complete. Just sayin’.

      • Operation American Spring is going to be peaceful. He and his minions are going to do whatever they want to at the time they want to. American People need to get there head out of the sand and come back to reality. Doing nothing is not an option anymore. Either the people are willing to fight for their country or we can live like China, Middle East, Russia, Ukraine and Venezuela.
        What is your choice?

      • It’s going to start out peaceful. But…we do have to do what we have to do to rid ourselves of this malignant administration.

      • Hopefully it will stay peaceful. If the Government does anything, it will be on them. They will all probably high tail it out of town.

      • He’ll be his ignorant self out playing golf maybe in Hawaii…. after all he can now do “anything he wants”

      • Witness protection? Seems there would be someone like Gowdy that would help somehow just to get the goods on this corrupt administration. But true…..there is a lot to consider.

      • You are so right – Before Michael Crighton died he came against the ” global warming machine” and said they play dirty and it almost destroyed him and if he had known how bad it would have gotten he said he would have not been able to go through it and almost quit. He was writing “State of FEAR’ great footnotes and appendicies – worth it just for that — Amazing! The truth is eyeopening.

      • For a perfect example of this retaliation, read “Classified Woman – the Sibel Edmonds storey” She was a turkish immigrant tapped to be a translator after 9/11. She tried to flag infiltration into the system and became the target of the government. She pretty well ties elements of both parties to Turkish influences. Yes, including our ‘Dear Leader’

    I agree with this analysis wholeheartedly, Col West!

    **__**

    • I asked him in a letter, if he would please run for POTUS a few yrs back. He said he had work to do in the position he had held at the time. Im praying he runs in 2016..we need him even MORE SO now.

  10. What hasn’t the committee subpoenaed Leon Panetta? As long as there is nothing new to bring to the forefront, no one but conservatives give a flying fig!

    • Why haven’t they subpoenaed every one of them including the President? Recall the previous witnesses and the ones that were there. They should be holding Hearings every damn day until we have the answers. Still don’t know who said “Stand Down” and who was it that did not want to take care of our men and women?

  11. This is all cover their asses as usual. Pass the buck blame the other guy.

    Benghazi is all about gun running by the President from Libya to Al Qaeda in Syria. It was Illegal for barry to do it and Benghazi was never a consulate. It was a CIA operation from the get go. The Russians new it was going on and tried to get barry to stop but he wouldn’t. So they set up Chris Stevens. The Turkey agent they sent to talk to Stevens was a former Spy and an Adversary of Stevens. Whether Stevens was supposed to be kidnapped or outright killed is still a mystery. The cover up is about Hillary and barry being protected from barry being impeached and hillary’s ability to run for President.
    The link below is a library of Articles by Doug Hagmann and a CIA insider outing what really happened and why. The articles are labeled and easy to find

      • They still have a huge spy network and Putin was in the KGB so that should be of no surprise. Remember the Russian’s have a huge investment in Syria as it is the only port to the Mediterranean to export their oil. They have 110,000 soldiers there and have no plans on letting Assad fall under any circumstance

      • Your right! I zero in on the United States and forget about the others involved. I just wished we would pull our troops out of the Middle East and bring them home to protect “Our Country”. We are not there to win and it’s a nightmare.

      • When barry asked the military if they could turn on the civilians and they said no. That stopped barry from bringing them home. Then he fired all the generals that might stand against him. Much the same as Saddam Hussein did

      • Bingo! I have thought that every since he started pushing our Generals, Officers and Enlisted out. As horrible as it is to think it, I think he wants as many as possible dead before they come back. The American People should start demanding they are brought home now, not months from now.

      • He has little or no regard for our miitary and any way to weaken it would be and is his goal. He also has no respect for them

      • That’s so true. I wonder if the “American People” started demanding they come home now, what he would do. It’s horrible, sad and damn frustrating. I wonder if our Military will ever reach a breaking point and say enough is enough.

      • He keeps them there to eliminate the threat to him here; can’t have to many constitution enforcers, patriotic and abled bodies here in the US! It’s better to keep them where they can’t be a danger to his administration.

    • Thank YOU I was online when it went down and just about over I know it’s true I couldn’t believe what I was seeing or reading – – and I can’t forget it either – nor can I believe how people are being blindfolded and played with by this administration the “media greedia” think about it OUR president instead of addressing the U.N. as our “honerable president and leader and being outraged by this despicable act he apoliges for a FAKE film and acts disgraced and leaves – not even stays to find solidarity or answer anyone’s concerns but goes right to the view to hide behind womens skirts- what the hell is that wossie turncoat saying – PLENTY !!! If you didn’t catch that Slap in the face you’re not asleep or unconcious but in a deep coma and almost dead. The line has been drawn in the sand – choose you this day will you be a watchman for our freedoms and liberties the Truth and Life or bow to willful ignorance of our laws, Constitution, and vow breaking rebellion to our countries Declaration of Independance WHO ARE YOU PEOPLE ? Anyway Patriot Thank You again -sorry about the rant.

  12. Like all the others who “have retired, were fired, let go, resigned reassigned – etc.” from obama scandles, investigations, positions — it sounds more like the catholic church – trick- moving the pedefile priest to another church another town, but haven’t stopped the crimes or takeover of the rampant evil spreading it’s twisted agenda to steal kill and destroy —- us from within — Same Spirit different Mask — If you are still a supporter of this administration you should not only feel used, ashamed and outraged but understand and know that you have brought a curse upon yourself… it’s not to late for you to join the living. Stop kissing the Donkey’s ass before they get you to put on the superglue lipstick like they gave Nancy P, Harry R. or maybe you like them blowing smoke up your ——-?

  13. Transparency only matters if you are not blind. Unfortunately, the majority of this country wants to watch the super bowl or the Miley Cyrus train wreck. Benghazi is what happens when small time thugs want to play espionage with real spies – if you want to work that part of the world, you don’t pull out your military assets and eliminate your presence.

  14. Re the 2016 Elections. I asked Col. West a few yrs back if he would please run for POTUS…we needed him, but understood when he said he had work to do in the position he had held at the tme We needed you then…..we still do….even more so.
