President Barack Obama is guilty of covering up the assassination of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. diplomats on Sept. 11th, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya. For this “high crime and misdemeanor,” the President should be brought before the U.S. House of Representatives for impeachment.
The facts in the case for impeachment are proven and undeniable. Beginning within hours of the heinous killing of Ambassador Stevens and the others, and the over-running of the CIA safe-house in Benghazi, President Obama, White House spokesman Jay Carney, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, conducted a campaign of outright lies, to conceal from the American people their complicity in the deaths in Benghazi. They knew within hours of the assassination that the attack had been a premeditated 9/11 attack by elements of the British-Saudi sponsored Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb.
The U.S. State Department was so concerned about the deteriorating security situation on the ground in Libya that they issued a travel warning on Aug. 27th, 2012 against any Americans going to Libya. They singled out the uncontrolled situation in the Benghazi area, where terrorist groups had been gaining ground for months.
Why, under these deteriorating circumstances, Mr. President, were there no U.S. Marine guards at the Benghazi consulate? Why was security at the compound “outsourced” to a private British mercenary company, Blue Mountain Group, with ties to the very British Special Air Services (SAS) that has been arming and training the Libyan Jihadists to wage a terrorist war in Syria, Mali, and in other parts of North Africa and Southwest Asia? These are questions that must be answered now—before the American people go to the polls on November 6th.
Not only did President Obama and Ambassador Rice
lie repeatedly, that the Benghazi attack was a “spontaneous” act of mob violence in retaliation for a little-known video slandering the Prophet Mohammed, but on Sept. 16th, long after the President of Libya had provided details on the Al Qaeda cell behind the Benghazi assassinations, Ambassador Rice was dispatched by President Obama to appear on five national television networks, to repeat those lies about the incident. Even after the head of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawaheri, issued a public statement, claiming responsibility for the Stevens assassination as a new 9/11 attack, avenging the killing of a top Libyan associate by U.S. drone attacks in June, the President and his crew continued to suppress the truth.
When CNN obtained a copy of Ambassador Stevens’ personal diaries, and reported that he knew he was on an Al Qaeda hit list and feared for his life, the White House attempted to block the story and persisted in suppressing daily revelations proving that the attack had been a premeditated act of international terrorism. It has now been corroborated by numerous eyewitnesses that there never was a protest demonstration outside the Benghazi consulate on Sept. 11th, as the President, Ambassador Rice and others claimed. All that took place was a heavily armed, professional, pre-planned assault, resulting in the murders of Ambassador Stevens and the others.
Is this the kind of behavior that warrants a second term as President? For more than ten days, President Obama and his loyalists lied to the American people, refused to explain why the Commander-in-Chief had failed to provide protection to endangered American frontline diplomats and intelligence officers, and targeted those attempting to puncture
the veil of lies.
When leading members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee attempted to launch an immediate investigation, to provide answers to the American people before November 6th, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) blocked the effort, deferring to the Administration and backing an executive branch inquiry that will not be completed before April 2013.
U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, Travel Warning:
“The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against all but essential travel to Libya... [Political] violence, including car bombings in Tripoli and assassinations of military officers and alleged former regime officials in Benghazi, has increased. Intermilitia conflict can erupt at any time or any place in the country. (Travel Warning, U.S. Department of State, State.gov, August

According to the White House calendar, there is no public record of President Barack Obama attending the daily intelligence briefing in the week leading up to the attacks on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the assassinations of Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens and three American members of his staff. (White House Schedule, WhiteHouse.gov.)
Kim Sengupta, London Independent Defense Correspondent:
“According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and ‘lockdown’, under which movement is severely restricted.” (The London Independent, September 14, 2012.)
Mohamed Yousef El-Magariaf, Interim President of Libya:
Bob Schieffer, CBS News: Was this a long-planned attack, as far as you know? Or what-- what do you know about that?
El-Magariaf: The way these perpetrators acted and moved... and they’re choosing the specific date for this so-called demonstration, I think this leaves us with no doubt that this has preplanned, determined-- predetermined.
Schieffer: And you believe that this was the work of al Qaeda and you believe that it was led by foreigners. Is that-- is that what you are telling us?
El-Magariaf: It was planned-- definitely, it was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago, and they were planning this criminal act since their arrival. (Face the Nation, CBS, September 16, 2012.)
Susan Rice, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations:
“Our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous – not a premeditated – response to what had transpired in Cairo...” “I’ve been to Libya and walked the streets of Benghazi myself. The U.S. is extremely popular in Libya.” (This Week, ABC News, September 16, 2012.)
Jamal Mabrouk, Member of Libyan February 17th Brigade:
A member of a Libyan security force said he had met with American diplomats in the capital of Benghazi three days before the deadly assault on the U.S. consulate to warn them about the deteriorating situation in the country. “The situation is frightening, it scares us,” Mabrouk said they told the U.S. officials. He would not say how they responded. Mabrouk said it was not the first time he has warned foreigners about the worsening security situation in the face of the growing presence of armed jihadist groups in the Benghazi area.

Yevgeny Y. Satanovsky, President of the Institute of the Middle East, Moscow:
American leaders should not expect “one word of sympathy from their Russian counterparts. It is a tragedy to the family of the poor ambassador, but his blood is on the hands of Hillary Clinton personally and Barack Obama personally.” (New York Times, September 12, 2012.)
