With the first Sunday network TV news talk shows since the #Benghazi attacks approaching, the White House had to pick someone to appear and answer questions. Their 1st choice was @HillaryClinton. @brhodes sent her a request, but he claimed he never heard back from her. 🤣(1/7)
This was obviously an embarrassing moment for @HillaryClinton, who had planned to use her war in Libya and the assassination of Qadhafi as a success story for her future campaign for president. (2/7) Image
Flashback to the statement by her Deputy Chief of Staff @jakejsullivan long before the #Benghazi attacks: "Hillary's role is leadership/ownership/stewardship of Libya policy from start to finish." (3/7) Image

When pressed by the @HouseBenghazi committee on why his overhaul of the talking points did not include the fact that there was NO 9/11/12 protest at the #Benghazi compound, backed by numerous documented witness accounts, @MichaelJMorell used an "It's not my job" excuse. (1/6)
Morell's argument was that he would have overstepped his bounds as a CIA manager to change the assessment of analysts in the talking points: "Look, managers at CIA don’t do analysis. When they are perceived to be doing the analysis, the analysts go nuts, right?" (2/6)
Morell's argument was intentionally misleading and false. He was NOT creating an analytic assessment. He was editing talking points that would be used for public consumption. The CIA analysts were not involved in the talking points process; only managers (i.e. Morell) were. (3/6)

Another document that @MichaelJMorell reviewed before he overhauled the #Benghazi talking points was an email from the CIA Tripoli Chief of Station stating his assessment "that the attacks were not/not spontaneous and not/not an escalation of protests." (1/4)
The email referred to the press reports quoting the @StateDept #Benghazi compound guards who witnessed that the attack began without warning and in the absence of any protests outside the compound beforehand. (2/4)
The email also cited a CIA officer on the scene who noted that there was no sign of a protest at the compound, and Libyan President Magaryaf who stated "the attacks were planned in advance by experienced individuals, most likely al-Qa'ida and not former regime elements." (3/4)

Considering all the information that @MichaelJMorell had at the time that he overhauled the #Benghazi talking points on 9/15/12, it's abundantly clear he chose to ignore the facts and follow his marching orders from the Obama White House to describe the attacks their way. (1/5)
A 9/15/12 New York Times article quoted a guard who was at the @StateDept #Benghazi compound when it came under attack. The guard confirmed that the attack began without advance warning or any peaceful protest. (2/5)
"Attack, attack," the guard said over his walkie-talkie as the chants from the attackers came closer. Suddenly, according to the guard, there came a barrage of gunfire, explosions, and rocket-propelled grenades. (3/5)

At the time the @HouseBenghazi Select Committee released its final report, a detailed inventory of all armed drone assets available on the night of the #Benghazi terrorist attacks was not produced by the Department of Defense. (1/4)
The explanation that, because of time and distance, armed drones may not have arrived in #Benghazi in time is false and is no excuse for the fact that the Obama Administration didn't even try to help. (2/4)
Under the command of President Obama, the military failed to provide an inventory of every armed aircraft, whether manned or unmanned, that could have flown to #Benghazi during the 7-plus hrs. from the beginning of the attack to the mortar rounds hitting the CIA Annex. (3/4) Image

Will Kotel was Non-Commissioned Officer in Charge at the Global Command Control System, Central Command in Tampa Florida, tasked with marking all air and sea military assets in Mediterranean region on 9/11/12. (1/6)
Will Kotel confirmed there was substantial intelligence from highly vetted sources of threats in #Benghazi in advance of 9/11/12 that were significant enough to require both the removal of key personnel and increased security. Neither happened. (2/6)
Will Kotel was in a training exercise on 9/11/12 named IL12 that required 75% of Central Command personnel around the world. He confirmed that they were not allowed to stop the training exercise as the #Benghazi attacks unfolded, but were ordered to continue for 8 1/2 hrs. (3/6)

Multiple members of the military who were on duty during the #Benghazi attacks on 9/11/12 attempted to come forward to the @HouseBenghazi Select Committee with evidence of military assets in the Mediterranean region that were available but never deployed. (1/5)
Nick Noe, former 603d Air and Space Operations Center personnel member, working in combat operations based at Ramstein, Germany AFB was tracking assets through the Mediterranean using the CSS system on 9/11/12. His job was to know where military assets were at all times. (2/5)
Nick Noe confirmed that there were several drones, both armed and unarmed over open airspace in Libya. He confirmed that there were F-16s at Aviano, Italy AFB; F-15s at Lakenheath, England AFB; and a pararescue team ready to respond 24 hrs/day. (3/5)

Intl community has a plan and #Libya has another plan...

Now add Mislata Tajura & Tripoli

#Libya’s National Elections Commission rejects #Saif #Gaddafi candidacy... then immediately deletes the rejection on the Facebook page.

Testing the pulse?

At the 1/23/13 Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing, Senator @RandPaul coached @HillaryClinton on how to recognize the difference between frivolous spending requests and critical, urgent ones such as Amb. Stevens's cables pleading for adequate security in #Benghazi: (1/4)
Senator @RandPaul: "The thing is, is that, you know, we can understand that you are not reading every cable. I can understand that maybe you are not aware of the cable from the Ambassador in Vienna that asked for $100,000 for an electrical charging station... (2/4)
...I can understand that maybe you are not aware that your Department spent $100,000 on three comedians who went to India on a promotional tour called `Make Chai Not War'... (3/4)

After Hillary's failed attempt to use her ARB report to dismiss Senator Ron Johnson's line of questioning, he continued to press her on why the Obama Administration did not try to learn the facts from witnesses on the ground in #Benghazi before she spread the video lie: (1/5)
"...we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, and assaults sprang out of that. And that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact. And the American people could have known that within days, and they did not know that." (2/5)
With her other explanations rendered useless, an exasperated @HillaryClinton callously shrugged her shoulders and waved her hands in a pleading manner while she issued her now infamous bitter rebuttal: (3/5) Image

On 1/23/13, the Senate Foreign Relations Committee held a hearing on the #Benghazi attacks where @HillaryClinton testified and was questioned. Predictably, she and Democrat senators tried to establish the @StateDept ARB report as the definitive final word on the attacks. (1/5) Image
At the time of the 1/23/13 Senate hearing, @BarackObama had already been re-elected so he saw little need to continue lying about protests over the anti-Islam YouTube video as the origin of the #Benghazi attack. Hillary was free to confidently use the "terrorism" word now. (2/5)
Senator @SenRonJohnson contrasted Hillary's current ease in acknowledging terrorism in #Benghazi with the weeks immediately following the attacks and @AmbRice46's Sunday talk show appearances when lying to voters was in Pres. Obama and Hillary's best political interests. (3/5)

The #Benghazi aftermath behavior of the Obama administration exposed the overall strategy deployed by the White House: Begin by falsely blaming the anti-Islam YouTube video in all public statements, because the first crucial impression is what the public will remember most. (1/5)
Senior Obama officials used every avenue to hammer their video lie home on multiple fronts: from the official @StateDept statement while the attack was in progress, to lying to the parents of the dead at the casket ceremony, to Susan Rice's lies on 5 Sunday talk shows. (2/5)
In the Rose Garden, at the Miami town hall and even at the UN General Assembly, Obama himself used the influence of the presidential pulpit to ensure the video lie would be what his news media worshipers and ultimately the public would blame for the deaths of Americans. (3/5)

State Dept blocking private rescue flights from leaving Afghanistan, organizers say: 'Blood is on their hands'…
This does not surprise me at all. When I worked hostage cases as an @FBI Supervisory Special Agent, the @StateDept was a huge obstacle. So much so, we had hostages stay in captivity way longer than they should have, if we even got them home.
State Dept leaked to the @WSJ details of a critical operation being done to rescue a hostage. They faxed a document to the White House saying I was a rogue Agent, even though everything was coordinated at the NSC Hostage & Personnel Recovery WG. That hostage never came home.

Update #Afghanistan .
#KabulAiport wurde wieder von einer Explosion erschüttert.
Zunächst gab es sehr widersprüchliche Meldungen, ob es ein Luftangriff oder ein Selbstmordattentäter war. Nun gibt es Klarheit darüber.
Infos dazu sowie weitere Updates im Thread👇
Das Areal rund um #KabulAiport wurde wieder von einer Explosion erschüttert.
Schnell wurde gemeldet, dass es erneut ein Terroranschlag war.
Bald stellte es sich jedoch heraus, dass es das Gegenteil war ein US-Luftangriff, um einen Anschlag zu verhindern...
Es heißt, US-Armee habe Infos über einen bevorstehenden Terrorangriff bekommen und identifizierte das entsprechende Auto.
Danach habe man einen Luftangriff auf das Auto ausgeführt und den mutmaßlichen Terrorangreifer getötet.
Laut Augenzeugen gibt es auch "Kollateralopfer"

This is material support to terrorism. He should be charged, as well as others who are responsible for this devastating crisis. Since our lame State Department doesn’t have the Taliban on the designated list,
other countries that do reserve the right to charge them under their laws. This is a HUGE War Crimes happening on his watch! I guarantee the State Department didn’t deploy the FEST, just like with #Benghazi.
In my view, we have enough military aircraft in the general region to do cycles of evacuations until all of the people are out. At the very least, the 80k US Citizens left behind.

Helping Joe Biden w/his serial Syria-Libya confusions: Syria is where Obama-Biden admin drew a red line over gas attacks on civilians, then erased it. Libya became a lawless state when Obama-Biden ousted Gaddafi…
And four Americans died there in #Benghazi when Obama slashed consulate security, Hillary did nothing when they were attacked, No help or rescue was ready on a day full of Arab 9/11 outbreaks
And an Obama-Biden investigation of the Obama-Biden admin deaths found no Obama-Biden culpability. #NoConsequences

Assets that Panetta did NOT "choose" to deploy included 2 squadrons of F-16s at Aviano Air Base, 4 remotely piloted aircraft (drones) stationed in southern Europe, special operations aircraft stationed in Souda Bay, Crete, and the Foreign Emergency Support Team (FEST). (1/5)
On 9/11/12, the air squadrons in Aviano were not on any heightened alert status, despite the supposed call for a “heightened alert” from Obama. Instead, they were in training posture and in the middle of a 2-week inspection, meaning nothing was pre-loaded on any aircraft. (2/5)
Armed drones were heavily used in Obama and Hillary's war in Libya. Drone pilots testified that after the fall of Qadhafi, they received orders to disarm drones, making it time consuming to re-arm them to respond to the #Benghazi attack. (3/5)

A thread on events in Libyan history that shaped #Gaddafi’s enigmatic visit to Rome.

Gaddafi was a passionate student of history, having delved deeply into history was what formed his personality.

To understand his actions, one needs but to thoroughly read history.

[1/23] Image
2] After a lifetime of severed relations & diplomatic unease, Italy agrees to formally #acknowledge & #apologise to the Libyan people for a brutal occupation that inflicted decades of massacre, everlasting heart-ache and bereavement.
3] Italy signs to compensate #Libya for the damages and misdeeds a sum of $5billion —to be paid as a yearly $200million over the next 25 years — to be put into construction projects, student grants & pensions for Libyan soldiers forced to fight in Italy’s ranks during WW2.
