PRESIDENT KNEW BENGHAZI ATTACK WAS TERRORISM 72 HOURS AFTER IT HAPPENED

President’s Daily Brief after Benghazi called the attack ‘terrorism’

Rick Moran

Jennifer Rubin has the story:

In a blockbuster report, John Solomon, the former Associated Press and Post reporter, has ferreted out the president’s daily brief that informed him within 72 hours of the Sept. 11 attack that the Benghazi attack was a jihadist operation.

Citing officials directly familiar with the information, Solomon writes in the Washington Guardian that Obama and other administration officials were told that “that the attack was likely carried out by local militia and other armed extremists sympathetic to al-Qaida in the region.”

He adds:

The details from the CIA and Pentagon assessments of the killing of Ambassador Chris [Stevens] were far more specific, more detailed and more current than the unclassified talking points that UN Ambassador Susan Rice and other officials used five days after the attack to suggest to Americans that an unruly mob angry over an anti-Islamic video was to blame, officials said.Most of the details affirming al-Qaida links were edited or excluded from the unclassified talking points used by Rice in appearances on news programs the weekend after the attack, officials confirmed Friday. Multiple agencies were involved in excising information, doing so because it revealed sources and methods, dealt with classified intercepts or involved information that was not yet fully confirmed, the officials said.

How could the president and his senior staff then have allowed (or rather, sent) Rice to go out to tell an entirely different tale to the American people on Sept. 16 on five TV shows?

This report indicates that the president certainly knew that Benghazi wasn’t a rogue movie review gone bad. He had information that plainly spelled out what was later confirmed by additional intelligence. If this information was too confidential to share with the public, at the very least the president and others should not have mislead (sic) voters.

Solomon cautions that there were bits of evidence pointing to a spontaneous attack but, as Eli Lake of the Daily Beast and others have reported, he writes: “Among the early evidence cited in the briefings to the president and other senior officials were intercepts showing some of the participants were known members or supporters of Ansar al-Sharia – the al-Qaida-sympathizing militia in Libya – and the AQIM, which is a direct affiliate of al-Qaida in northern Africa, the officials said.”

This is a case when the administration believed what it wanted to believe both for political and diplomatic reasons. But there’s never a good reason to lie to the American people – especially when the deaths of 4 of our countrymen are being discussed. The PDB proves that the Obama administration has not been forthcoming in explaining how they arrived at the conclusion that the anti-Muslim film was to blame for the attack and not well armed terrorists.

The issue will not go away anytime soon.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God!

This song, written by, church reformation father, Martin Luther, was included in the National Service of Prayer and Remembrance, held shortly after the September 11, 2001 attacks against America.

The WTC cross became an inspiration to the Ground Zero workers.


On September 23, 2001, The New York Post Published the Following Story:

© NY Post

You are looking at what some people believe is a miracle.

Two days after the disaster, a construction worker found several perfectly formed crosses planted upright in a
pit in the rubble of the heavily damaged 6 World Trade Center.

The large, cross-shaped metal beams just happened to fall that way when one of the towers collapsed. An FBI
chaplain who has spent days at ground zero says he has not seen anything like it on the vast site.

As word of the find has spread at ground zero, exhausted and emotionally overwhelmed rescue workers have
been flocking to the site to pray and meditate.

“People have a very emotional reaction when they see it,” says the Rev. Carl Bassett, an FBI chaplain. “They
are amazed to see something like that in all the disarray. There’s no symmetry to anything down there, except
those crosses.”

Chaplain Ray Giunta of Sacramento, Calif., has been to the crosses to pray with rescue workers.

“One of the firefighters pointed to them last night and told me, ‘There’s my angel,'” Giunta said.

The angel protecting the pit where the crosses were found is the Brooklyn-born hardhat who found them: a
gentle giant named Frank Silecchia.

Silecchia, 47, who now lives in Little Ferry, N.J., found the crosses on the Thursday morning immediately
following the collapse of the towers. He marked the site by spray-painting on a nearby wall the words
“God’s House,” and a directional arrow.

“The crosses are just shards of steel that came from the Tower 1 [the north tower], and went right through
the roof of Building 6 and destroyed the entire center of it,” he explained.

“When I first saw it, it took my heart, and made me cry for about 20 minutes,” he says. “It helped me heal
the burden of my despair, and gave me closure on the whole catastrophe.”

In subsequent days, Silecchia, a born-again Christian, led his fellow rescue workers and others – many of
whom were grieving the loss of loved ones – to the crosses.

A veteran firefighter who had been digging through the twisted metal for his lost firefighter son. An angry
cop who lost someone in the collapse. A Vatican representative, who photographed the crosses for the
pope. And ABC’s Barbara Walters.

He says they all left in peace.

“Barbara Walters’ niece lost her son in the building,” he said. “Barbara told me she wanted people to see
the House of God, so people who needed healing could find it.”

Standing Up For Pastor Terry Jones’ First Amendment Rights On This 9th Anniversary Of The September 11 Violent And Cowardly Attacks On America

Rev. Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Fla.

Let it be known that this blog supports Pastor Jones’ 1st Amendment rights to burn as many Korans as he wants, however stupid it may be!  I would not do it because I don’t believe in burning any books and I would prefer Pastor Jones read the Koran and challenge the ‘moderate’ Imam Rauf to a televised debate on the contents of the book.  At least that would give the American people and Pastor Jones the chance to ask the Imam about some of these historical facts:

There is no separation of mosque and state. It is a fact that where their faith flourishes, their flag follows. Where Muslims are in total control, they are in total control!

It is also a fact proclaimed by numerous Muslims that their goal is to conquer America. No one is a true Muslim unless he accepts that fact!


It is also a fact that Muslims and Christians do not worship the same God. Numerous Middle East scholars clearly state that Allah was one of 360 pagan gods worshiped at the Kaaba hundreds of years before Mohammed was born! See Encyclopedia Britannica, World Book, Coon, Farah, Thompson, etc.

It is a fact that while Muslims talk about believing in Christ, they do not believe in the Christ of the Bible. They believe that He was not divine, did not die on the cross and did not rise from the dead. That is not believing in Christ.

It is a fact that they do not believe in the Bible-teaching of the Trinity (sura 5:75). In fact, Mohammed did not even know that the Trinity was the Father, Son and Holy Spirit! He thought Mary mother of C hrist was a member of the Trinity! See Sura 5:116.

It is a fact that Islam teaches no one has a right to worship anyone but Allah. See sura 9:29; 2:691; 47:4; etc. In fact, a Muslim is to be killed if he or she leaves Islam. See vol. 9, book 84, #64.

It is also a fact that Mohammed took his son’s wife, slept with his Coptic slave, and had a nine-year-old wife. See Encyclopedia Britannica; Encyclopedia of Islam; Tabari (most famous Muslim historian); and Hadith vol. 7, book 62, number 65 where Aisha admitted, “My marriage (to Mohammed) was consummated when I was nine.

It is a fact that jihad is considered the “sixth pillar” of Islam, and while jihad can mean inner struggle, etc., it has always meant, “holy fighting in the cause of Islam.” See New Encyclopedia Britannica; Dictionary of Islam, and page 39 of the official Koran published in Saudi Arabia.

It is a fact that Muslims true to the Koran (and Hadith) are not moderate. The terrorists are the ones carrying out the commands of Mohammed.

Koranic Islam (historic Islam) is America’s Trojan Horse full of an enemy that has clearly proclaimed plans to destroy America.  I believe Pastor Terry Jones knows that.

Koranic Islam is our enemy!  No doubt about it.  At the same time, we should recognize that not all Muslims are terrorists.  Some of them are genuine moderates but Imam Rauf in not one of them!

We are at war with Koranic Islam, period!  The sooner we recognize our enemy the better off we will be.  Pastor Jones has it RIGHT.

I just love the way some members of the Obama Propaganda Media have attempted to denigrate Pastor Jones, who is a Christian minister of the gospel.  Just listen to the contempt in Rick Sanchez’ voice –

Okay, Mr. Sanchez, you asked how would Pastor Jones like it if Muslims burned bibles?  They did and still do and no one goes out and kill people!

Here’s a story from 2007.  It happened in Gaza, Israel.

Monday, June 18, 2007 by Ryan Jones

Hamas turns on Gaza Christians

Having vanquished their rivals in Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah movement, Gaza-based Hamas gunmen are now turning their attention to the area’s small Christian communities and other non-Muslim influences.

As Hamas completed its conquest of Gaza last Thursday, a spokesman for the group appeared on Palestinian television and announced the “end of secularism and heresy in the Gaza Strip.”

Shortly after, a group of militants stormed the Latin Church and the adjacent Rosary Sisters School in Gaza City, reportedly using rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) to blow through the doors.

After gaining entrance, the rampaging jihadists burned every Bible and destroyed every cross they could get their hands on before setting both buildings alight, according to sources who spoke to Israel Today.

Beyond the local representations of Christianity, the purging Islamic forces are also targeting statues.

In a scene reminiscent of Taliban rule in Afghanistan, a Hamas-affiliated group of militants on Sunday uprooted a cement statue from a public square in Gaza City because they said it violated Islamic laws forbidding the erection of statues, which are worshiped by pagans another non-believers.

Some fear that elements within Hamas may go so far as imposing a dress code on women in Gaza.

Earlier this month, a smaller local Islamic group believed to have ties to Al Qaeda publicly threatened to kill female Palestinian television news anchors for dressing immodestly while on the job.

The same group is said to have been behind some 50 bomb attacks on Gaza Internet cafes, record stores, satellite dish vendors and Christian bookstores over the past year.

With Hamas now fully in control of Gaza, many fear the worst is yet to come.

SOME TOLERANCE, huh?

This pastor has a congregation that is smaller than Michelle Obama’s staff. But he has raised an issue that is much bigger and far more important than the ill-advised burning of a Koran – the violent propensity of so many adherents of the “religion of peace.”


God bless Pastor Terry Jones for being a stand-up guy!

Islam Permits Its Followers To Lie To Deceive Unbelievers To Bring About World Domination

For those of you who have forgotten what ISLAM did on the morning of September 11, 2001, this is a reminder.  19 devout Muslims, soldiers of Allah, attacked the United States of America.  Their goal was to destroy and conquer the West’s greatest financial, military and political power to install their universal caliphate.  The following video documents what happened.  The jumpers are specifically disturbing to watch.  They made a decision to jump from hundreds of feet in the air to their death to escape the engulfing fire. This attack on the Twin Towers was one of the most horrific scenes we can remember.  Even though it one of the most observed catastrophes in history, some of us have allowed these images to be diluted and have allowed conspiracies that it was an inside job to dominate what 19 DEVOUT MUSLIMS CONSPIRED TO DO IN THE NAME OF ALLAH  on that dreadful day.

Graphic images follow:

There should not be a mosque of any type built anywhere near Ground Zero, period.  Islam’s ultimate goal is the entire world subjected to sharia law. The building of the Cordoba House on Ground Zero will send one  loud and clear message to the entire world – the site of the greatest Muslim attack on U.S. soil will have been converted into a Muslim house of worship.  Another Muslim conquest and the beginning of the decline of America.

Osama Bin Laden and his Islamists would love nothing better than to plant the flag of Islam in the cultural capitol of the West.  Unlike the LIES that are being told by Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf and his wife, Daisy Khan, this would not be read in the Muslim world as a sign of the West’s tolerance, but of its weakness. Muslims lie when it is in their interest to do so and “Allah” will not hold them accountable for lying when it is beneficial to the cause of Islam. They can lie without any guilt or fear of accountability or retribution. A lie in the defense of Islam is approved even applauded in their “holy” books.  It is called ‘Al-Taqiyya’.  DECEPTION.

Now some Muslims who do not follow the Koran are as faithful Americans as any of us, but the problem is, we cannot know.

Muslims lie not because they are liars by nature but by choice. Systematic lying as a religious policy is deadly, and if our politicians do not understand this, thousands more could die.

Muslims may appear very sincere; in fact, they are sincere, when they lie for their own protection or in the cause of Islam. They have permission to lie. Yes, Christians have also lied but never are they given permission to lie. However, a Muslim has no guilt since the Koran and Hadith permit his deception.

They will lie to make Islam more attractive to potential converts as they speak of “no compulsion in religion” while all of them know that verse was abrogated by later verses. They will quote verses that speak of tolerance and kindness knowing that those verses were written when Mohammed was desirous of “tolerance and kindness,” but when he climbed into the catbird seat, everything changed and he became a terrorist.

Listening to all of the uninformed and misinformed talking heads who are in support of the building of this mosque in the name of tolerance and free speech makes me want to puke!  They, along with the un-American president that we have are doing nothing but destroying this country.  This issue has nothing to do with the ‘right to build or not to build.  It has everything to do with the LOCATION of and MOTIVE for the mosque.

The location of Ground Zero was thought about and chosen with great care by the planners of the mosque.  This is the typical ‘in-your-face’ action displayed by radical Islamic jihadists.  They knew what kind of reaction they would get before they even announced their plans.  This was all done with careful consideration and pre-determined calculations.  THIS WAS MEANT TO HURT.

The most sickening part of it all is that President Obama knows this.

It’s because of his radical pro-Islamic leanings that groups like the Imam’s feel emboldened and are openly staking a claim for Allah on American soil.  The problem with Obama’s embracing Islam is that a “peaceful world community” is not Islam’s ultimate goal – WORLD DOMINATION is.  The American worldview, based on Judeo-Christian values of peaceful living, cannot co-exist with the Islamic worldview, based on the agenda of “convert or kill.”

In its long history of conquest, Islam has shown a habit of converting the sacred shrines of its enemies into mosques and madrasas.

Take a look at some of Islam’s famous mosques that were once the sacred sites of its defeated enemies:

The al-Kaaba Mosque, Islam's most sacred site located in Mecca

al-Kaaba was a pagan shrine that predated Islam by hundreds of years. Mohammed himself, after his army’s conquest of Mecca in 630, destroyed hundreds of idols, proclaiming the truth of his new religion, and, since, it has become the hub of the annual Muslim pilgrimage, hajj, and a core pillar of Islam.

As many as 300,00 can fit into the mosque, where they surround the simple cube-shaped Kaaba.

Hagia Sophia, in Turkey

The world-renown Hagia Sophia in Istanbul was a thousand year-old Christian church before being transformed into a mosque following the Ottoman conquest of Constantinople in 1453. It was only converted into a museum in 1935 by ultra-secularist and Turkish founding father Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Umayyad Mosque, Damascus

The Grand Mosque of Damascus, also known as the Umayyad Mosque, was converted from a church dedicated to John the Baptist in 705.

The mosque’s southern wall: a Greek inscription above a blocked doorway, with a most unlikely message: “Thy Kingdom, O Christ, is an everlasting Kingdom, and Thy dominion endureth throughout all generations.” How did Psalm 145 end up on the outside of one of Islam’s holiest sites? The answer provides a fascinating window onto the history of the mosque, and Syria’s surprising religious landscape.

The Umayyad Mosque stands in the middle of Damascus’s old city, on a site that has been home to religious worship since the second century B.C. The Romans built a temple there dedicated to Jupiter; its western facade survives today as part of the entrance to the great Souq al-Hamidiyya. In the fourth century A.D., when Christianity became the official religion of the Roman Empire, the temple became a church, which was famous for its prized relic—the head of John the Baptist.

n 636, Arab armies seized Damascus, and about three decades later the city became the capital of the fledgling Islamic state, now under the leadership of the Umayyad caliphs. Despite the changing of the guard, the church continued as the center of Christian worship.

Dome of the Rock, Jerusalem

Following the Muslim conquest of Jerusalem, the Ummayad Caliphate proceeded to build the Dome of the Rock, the Masjid Qubat al-Sakhra, on top of the Jewish Temple Mount in 689. Inscribed on the inner walls of the shrine are clear warnings to Christianity, professing Islamic supremacy. Sprawled on the inner octagonal arcade, flowing counterclockwise, the dedication warns Christians and Jews to “not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning God save the truth” and threatens the Christian Trinity by insisting that “The Messiah, Jesus son of Mary, was only a Messenger of God, and His Word which He conveyed unto Mary, and a spirit from Him. So believe in God and His messengers, and say not ‘Three’ – Cease! (it is) better for you! – God is only One God.”[1] Whoever believes that God had a son, “whoso disbelieveth the revelations of God (will find that) lo! God is swift at reckoning!”[2] Having defeated their Christian enemies, the Umayyads built a grand mosque on top of Judaism’s most sacred site that contained a clear declaration of Muslim supremacy over their brother Abrahamic religions.

America has to stop playing games with Islam, or “Let’s Stop The Terrorists” and get serious by going to the heart of the problem, by admitting that ISLAM IS NOT A PEACEFUL RELIGION, and IT TELLS ITS MEMBERS TO KILL THE INFIDELS, period!

This war on terror is a religious matter and IT WILL LAST UNTIL JESUS COMES AGAIN. Remember this slogan: You Can Trust Muslims To Be Muslims and they are lying their way to world domination.

Symbolizing Victory, Islamic Conquerors Erect Mosques Over Sacred Sites

Throughout history, Muslim conquerors have demonstrated their hatred and disdain for all other religions by purposefully erecting mosques over some of the most sacred and hallowed places of Judaic and Christian worship.

The al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem is built on top of one of the holiest sites in Judaism, the Temple Mount.  The Hagia Sofia, once the world’s largest cathedral and orthodox patriarchal basilica until its capture in 1453, was the principal mosque of Istanbul for over 450 years.  During the Muslim conquest of medieval Spain, the Christian church in Cordoba was captured and converted into the central mosque of the Umayyad Caliphate.   Muslims have engaged in this practice for centuries, symbolizing their victories over the infidels.

Today, in New York City, Muslim leaders are plotting to build a mega-mosque near the site of the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center, where over three thousand Americans were callously murdered by Islamic jihadists.  The site of the Twin Towers has become the most hallowed ground in United States history since Pearl Harbor.

The Center for Security Policy has released a video with a chilling reminder that history repeats itself.

Mayor Bloomberg, are you listening??

Alabama Man Eyed As Latest Terror Threat

“One of the prettiest sounds on earth”
is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times – March 6, 2007

So who’s more dangerous America?  Hammami or Barack Obama?


“The NextAnwar Awlaki is Al Shabab Leader

Fox News   August 6, 2010

Omar Hammami

They’re both Americans with world-wide star power, calling for “jihad” while hiding out somewhere near the Gulf of Aden.

That’s why some terror experts believe Omar Hammami, the Alabama-born face of an Al Qaeda-linked group in Somalia, could be evolving into “the next” Anwar Awlaki, the Arizona-born cleric living in Yemen who’s been connected to the Ft. Hood shootings, the failed Christmas Day bombing and the Times Square bombing attempt.

On Thursday, federal officials unsealed a years-old indictment against Hammami, charging him with providing material support to a terrorist group.

Known more commonly as “Abu Mansour Al Amriki,” Hammami has starred in several propaganda and recruitment videos for Al Shabab.  The Al Qaeda linked group is fighting to make Somalia an Islamic state and has recruited dozens of Americans to its cause.

According to federal authorities, Hammami is also an “operational” and “ranking member” of Al Shabab, the group responsible for the recent terror attacks in Uganda. U.S. officials worry the group could turn its sights onto the United States.

Rick Nelson, a senior fellow specializing in counterterrorism issues at the Center for Strategic and International Studies in Washington, called Hammami’s rise “disturbing,” and part of a “growing trend” epitomized by Awlaki.  Awlaki was built a strong following  through his anti-Western lectures and other radical messages have been distributed throughout the world through audio files and online videos.

“The entire Al Qaeda movement has been very aggressive in trying to recruit citizens inside the United States, and you need an Anwar Awlaki, you need an Abu Mansour, who can operate very comfortably in both environments,” said Nelson, who now works with CSIS’ International Security Program. “Individuals like that are so invaluable. They can be very effective leaders and very effective recruiters to these causes.”

A source familiar with counterterrorism operations near the Horn of Africa agreed, saying Hammami and Awlaki are “both articulate because they are born Americans.”

But there are substantial differences, said the source, who asked not to be identified. In particular, the source said, Hammami is “a fighter” who is “ready and willing to die,” while Awlaki more of a “scholar” who has shied away from actual combat.

“I have yet to see Anwar speak on actual operations or be filmed on the ground,” the source said. “Anwar entices and inspires. Omar is waging a war on ground.”

Hammami has yet to release a video “inspiring people to revolt or carry out operations” inside the United States. By contrast, Awlaki’s messages call for just that: Attacks inside the United States.

A U.S. intelligence official, who spoke about Awlaki and Hammami on condition of anonymity also stressed that while both are charismatic, Awlaki has stature as a religious figure while Hammani does not.  The official also noted that “Hammani does appear to be primarily focused on the Horn of Africa, whereas Awlaki has a broader message.”

Nelson, the CSIS senior fellow, acknowledged there are differences between Hammami and Awlaki, but “at the end of the day they’re still achieving the same goal,” he said.

“They’re still serving as valuable recruiting tools, they’re still seen as leaders inside their organizations, and they’re still getting individuals to potentially commit violent acts against U.S. citizens,” Nelson said.

Asked about it during a press conference in Washington on Thursday, Attorney General Eric Holder declined to answer, saying, “I wouldn’t want to comment on any possibility of what action the United States might take or get into things that might be intelligence-derived.”

As for Nelson, he believes U.S. authorities should consider putting Hammami on the hit list — if he’s not already there.

“If he’s recruiting individuals inside the United States, U.S. citizens, with the idea that they’re going to kill Americans or even affect U.S. interests overseas, that’s significant,” Nelson said. “We can’t sit by and let that happen in hopes that one day we may or may not be able to bring him to justice.”
