Benghazi After All These Years

By amazing, amazing coincidence, the Obama administration has announced the capture of one of the Benghazi masterminds at exactly the right moment to distract attention from Iraq, the IRS scandal,  our failed borders, a contracting economy, and an overall realization that Captain Barry is deliberately aiming the ship of state at icebergs.

But is Abu Khatallah really a terrorist mastermind? He claimed he wasn't when he was interviewed outside a hotel, casually sipping a drink, two years ago by Time magazine. Rather, it seems likely that his capture (said to have been effected by placing a frosty Piña Colada under a carefully balanced box) is a brazen "Look! A squirrel!" distraction intended to take some heat off the president.

And here's a suggestion, Mr. Obama - once we've determined exactly what Abu Khatallah was doing on that fateful night, why don't you finally tell the American people what you were doing?

And speaking of people who totally effed up their responsibilities in Benghazi and then lied their asses off, Hillary Clinton is currently appearing at bookstores, news outlets, and dry cleaners across the country while pushing her book "Hard Choices." Which is, coincidentally, the same state her husband was in when he made most of his choices.

By all accounts, the book is a ponderous doorstop of meaninglessness - which is hardly surprising since even news junkies such as ourselves are hard pressed to come up with a single hard (let alone successful) choice that Hillary made as Secretary of State.

So far, the book isn't selling terribly well despite a huge first printing - meaning that an entire forest of paper-producing trees was brutally murdered for no good reason at all. But then again, at this point what difference does it make?


TrickyRicky said...

To add insult to injury in this "look...a squirrel" moment, they are going to bring the SOB to the states and try him as a common criminal. He is not a jaywalker, he's a damn murdering terrorist, who should have been left in a Benghazi dumpster with a big scarlet grin from ear to ear. Along with his buddies.

It's all because Zero remembered that he hasn't yet fulfilled his campaign promise of six long years ago to close Gitmo. I'm fine with emptying the facility as long as all the inmates try to set free fall records on their way off the island...and forget their parachutes.

FlyBoy said...

Well, my bullshit detector is screaming at me once again: What's up with this "Benghazi Mastermind" line of steaming pony loaf?!?!?!? After barry and all of his useful idiots claiming that the whole Benghazi riot was a "spontaneous uprising" caused by a U-Tube video, now we are to believe that it was all planned? Not just that, but he's (oblama) known for years who mapped it out, only to collar the perp when barry needs another sparkly thing to distract the great unwashed.

I'm running out of duct tape for my head to keep it from exploding again.......

Colby Muenster said...

I heard that Abu Khatallah is actually a homeless guy named Al Kaputzenbottom they found living in refrigerator box behind a Pizza Hut in Virginia Beach, and Premier Barry gave him a few Benjamins to pretend to be a terrorist for a couple of weeks until the next CF starts.

Seriously, where is O'Liar going to put this guy, in Gitmo? And I'm with TrickRicky; why not just blow the focker's head off like they supposedly did Bin Laden's, and hang the bloody corpse from a pole as a warning to others who entertain ideas of killing our citizens. NooOOoo... they'll put the dude up in some fancy air conditioned jail, and turn him loose in a year.

As far as Billery... I hope her stupid book of lies flops and she loses her ass (which is no small thing to lose!), and REALLY finds out what being broke is all about.

Frankie said...

As far as I'm concerned, Obama
and Clinton should be flanking
the mastermind at the defendant's table.

Geoff King said...

If this were a movie the plot would be so twisted and unbelievable as to make it unwatchable. Cut to Jordan where top officials now claim that the US trained the ISIS fighters at an Air Force base in Turkey. Cut to the US-Mexican border where church groups are loading up illegal aliens, many of which may have contageous diseases, and driving them anywhere in the US they wish to go. Cut to the IRS who claim to be completely technologically challenged when it comes to providing evidence for a criminal investigation, yet can instantly supply any citizen's tax information for the last 20 or more years. Cut to Hilarity Clinton who now claims that she always doubted that the anti-Muslim video was behind the Benghazi Raid - possibly because of - cut to this:
Now cut to the timing of the capture of Kahtallah, whose exact whereabouts have been known for years.
Unfortunately we are forced to continue watching this ridiculous parody of real life and huge pile of bad acting, so the question arises: should we buy some popcorn or some bourbon?
Cut to this: Hey Rocky! Watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!

Speaking of squirrel season, and the fact that Obamohammadshiiteforbrains is a squirrel, does this mean...?!

Bruce Bleu said...

I KNOW you know, but I'm gonna say it for the others... lamont insane obama is the ONE person in the WORLD who's EXACT whereabouts is known at every single second! When he retreats to the White House bowling alley to watch gay-porn there is an SS agent close by to monitor his safety. Every time barry "spanks the monkey" SOMEBODY knows, (the delivery of a Scanning Transmission Electron Microscope would be the first clue, but aside from that, he is ALWAYS under a watchful "eye").
Plus, thanks for portraying Shrillary as a grown-up version of the kids in "Village of the Damned". It's just the visual needed when showing the harpy. (BTW, she doesn't HAVE 750 pantsuits... that just happens to be the SIZE she wears!)

Gorbachev said...


Stilton - you have outdone yourself with that imagery of Killary. Ha!

I love this woman to death (figuratively speaking, of course). But she is really just a worm. And those cartoons - a worm. Crawling into my ear - a worm....

gothmog said...

That image of Hillary is just good old-fashioned nightmare fuel.

deadmau5.1 said...

OK, so Ok. I have an important question. I am new to this political scene. But just what does it take to impeach a president? What are "high crimes and misdemeanors"? It seems like this admin has those in spades. Oooppssss. I didn't mean ... that is an old saying. Look it up.

Anyway, yeah, 15 scandals, many arguably involve illegalities. Just take the IRS destroying evidence. Or at least not taking the proper steps to record emails as required by law. That is just one, maybe two. I dunno.

And the president golfs ....

Jim Hlavac said...

@Geoff King -- now that's some investigative reporting -- thanks.

@Colby - the book is a flop -- but, she won't lose -- she got an upfront $14 million dollar payment. 650 page doorstop indeed. It sold a measly 64,000 copies ...

Which leads me to the $64,000 question: How many scandals can dance on the head of a pin before it actually pricks somebody?

John the Econ said...

For failures, Kennedy is mainly remembered for Bay of Pigs. Johnson for Vietnam. Nixon for Watergate. Carter for the Iran Hostages or "malaise". Reagan for Iran-Contra. Bush 41 for "No New Taxes", Clinton for Monica. Bush for Iraq.

What single failure will Obama be remembered for? 8 years of a non-recovery? Fast and Furious? ObamaCare? Benghazi? IRS corruption? The invited border invasion? The meaningless "Red Line"? The Taliban reclaiming Afghanistan? The give-back of Iraq? General international surrender? There are so many complete failures to choose from that eclipse all of the previous Presidential scandals put together. So maybe that's the plan: Have so many massive failures, that history will be unable to hang any single one around his neck.

Meanwhile, it was expected that Hillary's book would be a total dud. Haven't read it, and I don't intend to. And I usually don't like to critique books I haven't actually read, but it's my understanding that it's a muddled mess of nothingness, intended to exclude anything that might possibly be harmful during a possible Presidential run. What's left isn't even pablum. Usually, people who like to pretend their important, and wish other people to think they are feign interest, buy it, and never read it. This time, it seems they're not even doing that. It's another reason I think that Hillary is DOA come 2016.

In the mean time, I see that she's unwilling to take a concrete position on anything. At least Bill would look straight at you and lie. She doesn't seem capable of even that.

I read that the Army is going to investigate Bergdahl's disappearance, how many years after the fact? Good thing they're finally getting around to it. No doubt the same people that concluded that Fort Hood was a case of "workplace violence" will be in charge, and will arrive at similar conclusions. There's no doubt that everyone between the Obama Administration and the Army wants this to go away, and I am sure that it will.

It will go away just as effectively as the e-mail covering pretty much everyone involved in the IRS scandal. As any competent IT professional will tell you, it is simply impossible for this volume of e-mail to disappear without a trace. It's not even an issue of incompetence.

2 and-one-half years of e-mails detailing the fundamental corruption of the most powerful civil agency in the country magically evaporate, and nobody seems to care. For 40 years, the "missing 18 minutes" became the cultural metaphor for government corruption and cover up. But this was largely because the media and popular culture cared. If the ideologies were reversed, the FBI would have raided the IRS by now.

Or maybe that's why all of our civilian agencies are so well armed now. An FBI raid on the IRS would actually involved gunfire, as they're probably bettered armed than the embassy outpost at Benghazi.

Absurd notion? Perhaps. But then almost everything else that's happened over the last 6 years would have been considered absurd when the nation was still celebrating "hope and change".

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@TrickyRicky- Word is that Holder plans to put Khatallah on trial in Washington DC, which is infamous for having an unusually stupid and capricious jury pool. Most such cases would normally be tried in Virginia - assuming that an honest verdict was really wanted.

@FlyBoy- The NY Times, which is an entirely unbiased news outlet, is already reporting that it has secret leaks from those questioning Khatallah and he blames the Youtube video. Honestly, I've seen gradeschool plays that were better staged than this charade.

@Colby- Dead squirrels aren't as entertaining to the MSM as live squirrels, which is why Khatallah didn't get the (alleged) bin Laden treatment.

@Frankie- I completely agree.

@Geoff King- Nice job of summarizing the Bizarro world we suddenly find ourselves living in.

Your link is very intriguing, too. I'm going to have to dig deeper, but if what Freedom Outpost is saying turns out to be true, someone's got a lot of explaining to do.

@Marine4Ever- Only to the extent that the squirrel hunt you're imagining leads to a trial.

@Geoff King- Now that was entertaining!

@Bruce Bleu- Hillary does have a "Village of the Damned" look, doesn't she? I didn't really even alter the picture other than to run it through a paint filter and brighten her crazy eyes just a little. Spooky, huh?

@Gorbachev- This actually may be my new favorite picture of Hillary.

@gothmog- But isn't that really true of every picture of her?

@deadmau5.1- One very specific and very impeachable "high crime" is using the IRS as a political weapon. This was, in fact, the second article of impeachment drawn up against Nixon which helped force his resignation.

It's very likely that whatever the hell is (or was) in Lois Lerner's emails could be used to impeach and convict Barack Obama.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Jim Hlavac- Hillary's publisher is saying that they're really pleased with sales (ha!), but that the climate for selling books has really changed. Oddly, that doesn't seem to be true when conservative authors release new books and get astronomical sales.

@John the Econ- Great stuff. I'll admit that these days there are so many scandals and misdeeds that I get mental gridlock when I try to pick what Obama's worst offense is. And sadly, it's an effective strategy for the SOB, as many Americans now tune out such scandals as just more of the same old, same old.

The IRS email story should be another Watergate, but major news sources aren't even reporting it (preferring instead to give coverage to the 20th anniversary of OJ Simpson's slow-motion Bronco "chase.")

Finally, I don't think we'll ever see a shootout between the FBI and the IRS. If you go up the food chain high enough, both groups are controlled by the same criminals.

Judi King said...

I'm glad you keep referring to Bin Laden's death as "alleged". I believe he died about 10 years ago and the whole thing was staged to make the commander in chief look good. As for impeachment...what difference does it make? Clinton was impeached and is still running around free acting like Bozo the clown on TV (getting paid, no doubt). And that pic of Hillbill must be old. She's obviously had some "work" done in preparation for her run for the WH. Just more of the same.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Judi King- I'm fairly sure that Bin Laden is dead these days, but I'm not sure when, where, or how he died. The whole "wrapping the body in linen and slipping it into the sea" story just strains credibility too much.

As for impeachment, it's the beginning of a process, not the all-important end. I think any time someone mentions impeachment around here, they're also presuming a conviction - which didn't happen in Clinton's case because the Democrats wouldn't let it happen.

By the way, I'll bet there aren't many people around these days who even remember that Clinton was impeached.

txGreg said...

Great post today Stilton, and great on-topic comments by all the regulars. However, I'm going to go a tiny bit off-topic here, because I just have to release some cranial pressure before the duct tape gives out.

I just came across this story about yet another kid in danger of being taken away from his family by the DCF for no good reason (also here.

That leaves me wondering... can anyone name me a government agency that we actually need? Federal or State, I think we need to get rid of ALL the delegation of powers to various agencies, and let the elected representatives get back to doing their own dang jobs.

St. John the Reconn said...

OK so here's another reason to impeach:

Yes, impeachment does not mean conviction. But it s a start and certainly a stain. A stain commensurate in only a small way of the stain this moronic progressive whore has left on the country.

I am chewing gum while I write this. It is so "presidential".

Judi King said...

Well then, here's to "stains". May it be so. In my opinion impeachment isn't good enough.

Jim Hlavac said...

@TxGreg -- no agency is needed, especially at the federal level -- I'd much prefer the "Great Dismantlement" - nearly 90% of the whole damn rotten carcass of federal gov't just removed ... and most of the state mini-carcass while we're at it.

John the Econ said...

Here's an interesting observation: I have no small number of friends and relatives on social media, who frequently re-post mindless liberal platitudes from the usual sources; brainless stuff like the GOP really hates the veterans, the economy must be doing great, because the stock market is up, (even though the labor participation rate continues to fall) and ObamaCare is providing health care for all.

Over the last month, they've fallen totally silent.

As much as it pains us to witness the failing of America, it must really be difficult for the faithful to swallow what's been going on.

@Jim Hlavac


What you said! I don't care for "me-too" politics, but, er, well... me too!

There are huge savings in both budget terms and freedom terms by dismantling the massive, duplication-ridden, self-serving federal bureaucracy. I see no point to much of anything in the vast federal bureaucracy other than what is called for in the Constitution (e.g., defense - although that is bloated too).

We are not free in any sense as long as the Leviathan is active.

Do you do any of your own artwork, or is it all pretty much 3 identical panels, looking like it's stuck in the 1950s like so many Republicans?

Forget that other link - this is why I do not like to link things.

OK so here is a link! Yes! More money for the IRS! More money for Vox from the mighty Soros! Olé!

And now, a moment with Ms. Slaughter - no really! That is her name! With a name like that, she should run for president as a Neo-Con (President Slaughter!) but alas, she is just another hypocritical progressive: "We have been pilloried as warmongers and targeted, by none other than President Obama, as people who do not understand that force is not the solution to every question. A wiser course, he argued at West Point, is to use force only in defense of America’s vital interests." Did Obama say that? That sounds positively libertarian. I will have to call this fellow. He is getting on my gonads. Is that a saying?

You know I am wondering now, with his polls numbers slipping so badly, and the numerous scandals, eminently impeachment material (just between you and me), what would this president consider "America's vital interests"? Saving his sorry ass maybe? Hmmm ... I will have to call this fellow.

"Do you do any of your own artwork, or is it all pretty much 3 identical panels, looking like it's stuck in the 1950s like so many Republicans?"

To the other Anonymous - If he is stuck in the 50's, that is so much better than being stuck in the Woodrow Wilson era (that would be the teens - mostly - for you ignorant "progressives") as you Democrats are. Yes, that would be 'progress'.

Anyway, grow up and try to say something coherently intelligent, rather than sophomoric. And get out of your parents basement ...

John the Econ said...

Re @Anonymous #1: Once again, the few Progressives who bother to comment here have absolutely nothing of substance to contribute on the topics of the day. Instead, they complain about the artistic style. Typical, since the average liberal today is far more obsessed with style over substance.

So today, 6 years into the Obama era, we now get to reap the bitter fruits of style over substance, and it's bitter indeed. As I mentioned earlier today, there's little of substance that these people can celebrate anymore now that they can no longer see their emperors new clothes.

So they complain about the panels.

Anonymous said...

Mr. Econ, Ha! Very good! "They complain about the panels". Ha! Really. I wished I had thought of that one.

Anyway, to the first anonymous, this is (at least in publication) how far back your old ideas go:

This was publish about 20 years after Wealth of Nations - so OK, newer, more hip, with it, trending on Google. Go it! New is always better, no?

It was stupid then, it is stupid now, as are you.

Stilton Jarlsberg said...

@Anonymous #1 and Readers- Wow, what a sad attempt at trolling. But just for fun, I'll address your question anyway.

No, I actually don't draw any of the art for Hope n' Change, but instead take the capitalist approach of paying others for their artwork (through clipart services and licensing fees).

The stylized "retro" look of much of the line art is a deliberate choice dating back to the creation of HnC. Obama's "hope" and "change" campaign was all sweetness and light, rainbows and unicorns. He spoke of returning to basic American values (lying his ass off, of course). So I chose to go with a 40's and 50's "classic Americana" look to contrast the relative simplicity of those times with the rampant duplicity of Obama's policies.

The three panel format, with minimal changes from panel to panel, was inspired in part by the great comic "Red Meat" which demonstrated that good writing can carry a strip even with minimalist art.

And by the way, I actually can draw - but not quickly enough to keep up with your president's multiple scandals.

Snowpuss said...

This was simply inspired.

A beautiful combination of Steyn and Iowahawk.

John the Econ said...

Well, the politicization of all government agencies by the radical left continues unabated. As we now well know, the IRS today is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democrats since well before 2010. NASA has been almost fully transformed from an agency that deployed cutting-edge science and technology to a cabal of pajama-boy community organizers obsessed with the feelings of Muslims and income redistribution.

And yesterday, we found out that the US Patent office has cancelled the Washington Redskin's trademarks in the name of "political correctness".

What does this mean? That if this stands and you want to start selling anything with the Washington Redskins logo, you'll soon be free to do so without retribution from the Redskins organization or the NFL. Personally, I don't see how flooding the marketplace with supposedly offensive cheap Redskins jerseys, banners and assorted tchotchkes is going to forward the agenda of sensitivity for native Americans, but that's basically what's going to happen. It will just be collateral damage to the larger cause.

And don't for a second believe that this is really about the well-being of native Americans either. Most surveys of native Americans show that they either approve of these team names, or couldn't care less. It's mostly guilty white liberals on power trips who are behind these kind of movements.

So look out Cleveland Indians, Atlanta Braves, and countless other teams. The Patent Office will soon be coming for you too.

The real agenda, of course, is to send a clear message to any businesspeople now considering launching a new company or brand. If the name or image you choose in any way offends the sensitivity of the PC enforcers at the Patent Office, you will not be granted the protection of the law over your trademark that will be granted to companies who please the sensibilities of establishment.

You've been warned.

Geoff King said...

Also, we can say goodbye to the First Ammendment. Conservative websites are now being blocked in schools and on military bases, while liberal authoratarian sites are not. It is probably just a matter of time before this site is blocked as well.

I quite agree that the artistry is tremendously suited to the humor. Dark, gloomy, this side of tragedia, like your el presidente. I would also add, rather Monty Python-esque. Bravo!

Yes, what J the E says just reinforces Hlavac's comments - the bureaucracy needs to be torn down - they see hope for the survival/expansion of their turfs in the progressives and so have adopted their PC tunes hook, line, and sinker. Any port in a storm.

BTW, Dr. J, that was the best explanation of how and what you do that you gave Anonymous #1. I've always been curious (and envious) of your art and writing style. I doubt Anonymous #1 understood a word of it.

Colby Muenster said...

Man... what anonymous1 said really got me to thinking. I grew up in the 50's and it was HORRIBLE! Every man over the age of, say... 13, was expected to figgin' work. For example, my overbearing and controlling father made me get a job when I was 14 so I could save money to (gasp!) PAY FOR MY OWN COLLEGE! Why, it burns my ass to this day! Can you imagine having to pay for your own college, and UP FRONT no less?! Barbaric!

And that's just the tip of the iceberg. There were no credit cards, no unemployment, no iPhones, no Priuses, no Common Core, no locks on house doors, no Xboxes, no MTV, climate change was simplistically called "weather," and if you weren't very good at high school football, you didn't get a trophy. Nobody had free phones, free food, free housing, free birth control; you were expected to get these things on your own (barbaric). Women couldn't get abortions because those ignorant people from the fifties thought that was (get ready to laugh) murder. The federal government was too small and did practically nothing but national defense claiming that the grossly out of date constitution only required that much.

Boy do I miss the 50's! Stilton, you keep on with your excellent work! Anonymous #1 is an ignorant moonbat, who probably really believes we are better off now.

Judi King said...

Ditto to Colby....I grew up in the 50's also and what you said is exactly right and should be exactly right. Way too much government now and hence our destruction.

A pithy point made at another blog WRT your babe, Hillary.

"Killery imploded right after her failings to save our Embassy from the attack in Benghazi and the deaths of our 4 Americans there. What you’re seeing now is the dust and rubble."

I think that is what is depicted in your 1950's-style cartoon of her (think "Invasion Of The Body Snatchers") - too creepy for my tastes but hey, she's your babe. But what difference does that make now?

PRY said...

World events are coming so 'fast and furious' the last few days, it's hard to keep up...but I fully expect, from the situation that Obama caused in Iraq, a complete state of chaos and confusion to reign supreme as we go along, full of lies and confusion...oh yeh, he's sending some troops over there, and of course he's proclaiming to all his muslim brethren exactly what he is NOT going to do with them! Deadly deja vu!

Jane Fonda Should Be In Jail said...


Yeah - just some advisers, is what I read. Yup. Never heard that one before. Eh?

St. John the Reconn said...

OK folks, here is YOUR president announcing - He does not make decisions!

OK, that's not what he said but he does say SOFA was not his decision of course, unless Bin Laden was killed because of it then it was his decision. I mean, if anything good had come from SOFA (like some spare change in between the cushions), hey, he was all over it. But now that beheadings are taking place, a year or two in the making, right underneath his idiotic nose, nope, not my decision folks. My sh1t still smells SWEET, laddy.

Hey is Bin Laden dead?

This president is an abject moron, albeit an Harvard-educated moron.

JustaJeepGuy said...

@Geoff King,

In the name of fairness, you do have to admit that Barack Hussein DID marry before producing offspring. Also, a while back, he gave a speech in which he said that Uncle Sam doesn't go to war to capture and then keep territory (think Cuba, the Philippines, Iwo Jima, Okinawa, half of Germany, etc.). It's actually true that he said it! I still wouldn't vote for him for dog killer (Firesign Theater joke), but I will give him these things.
