Something to chew on
Dennis D. sends along a comment he plucked from the Ulstermann site that is at once almost laughable paranoid and yet oddly plausible, surreal and terrifying simultaneously, bespeaking an Administration so committed to political theater — and so downright cynical and demanding of narrative control — that the story itself begins to make sense of some of the behavior of the WH and State (and some silence as to the presence of so many obvious spooks) that I figured I’d post it here and let you all discuss it.
To be clear, I don’t endorse the theory. But I also am not among those who think that because Obama, Axelrod, Jarrett, Rice, Wright, Ayers, and the whole host of hard left would-be radicals who are living out the dream of controlling the levers of world power, are garden-variety left liberals and love their country as much as we do, that to even consider the story is absurd, unhelpful, dangerous, or Visigothically cockroachable.
So. Here it is. Discuss amongst yourselves:
DID OBAMA STAGE BENGHAZI ATTACK?
OCTOBER 15, 2012 BY C.O. JONES
I received a phone call from an old friend that has been in Washington D.C. for years and is ‘fairly well-connected politically’. What she told me was ugly and sinister, yet very compelling.
She said she had received information from someone ” high up in White House circles”, and wanted my thoughts. No, there is no leaked email, no concrete proof, and this article is based on “hearsay.” I’m not one that usually engages in or repeats hearsay, but if this is true, it could be the biggest story in 50 years.
According to her, Barack Obama, wanting an “October Surprise,” had secretly arranged with the Muslim Brotherhood for a kidnapping of our ambassador. Then sometime in October before the election Obama was to orchestrate some great military action to rescue Ambassador Stevens, causing all of America to cheer Obama’s strong foreign policy and bravery and making him look like a hero. After all, his supposed killing of Osama Bin Laden bounce had long since faded. Thus, sweeping him to victory in November. Imagine the headlines and talking points. The election would be a lock.
The Muslim Brotherhood has every reason to want Obama re-elected in November and have an American President sympathetic to their causes. Not to mention an administration filled with Muslim appeasers. Therefore, they agreed to aid in these theatrics.
Unfortunately for Ambassador Stevens and three others, the Brotherhood could not control the “hired thugs” that were to perform the kidnapping and things escalated and four American lives were lost.
Panic set in at the White House and with little time to place blame as far away from Obama as they could, they settled on a ridiculous fairy tale about an irrelevant video posted four months prior on YouTube and ran with it. Barack Obama even ran with it after evidence showed he knew better and ran with it all the way to his speech at the U.N.
So now, they are admitting it was a terrorist attack. They are admitting that the State Department had denied requests for more security from Washington, but nobody told them.
Blame anyone but Barack Obama.
I’m betting the White House is smirking and perfectly happy to be accused of having a breakdown in communication as opposed to the alternative. This scenario, if true, more than satisfies my common sense gland.
The only thing I can add to this speculation is the increased and troubling influence the Muslim Brotherhood has seemed to enjoy with this Administration, including White House visits. Attempts by TEA Party types like Michele Bachmann or Steve King to look into the degree of this influence has been met — even on the right — with a lot of faux outrage and posturing, with blowhards like John McCain even going so far as to call the very questions being asked “unacceptable,” as if certain spheres of potential knowledge concerning national security are off limits, largely because the US position of late seems to be to defer to Muslim sensibilities.
I’m not expert on this but for some deep background I’d point interested readers toward Andrew McCarthy at NRO.
So. Go ahead and work your way through this — leaving aside what you think of Ulstermann’s record. This bit came from one of his commenters.
