DEVELOPING: Massive Explosion in Iran – May Be Nuclear... Update: Roads Blocked Off for 2km

PDATE -- Huge blast near secret Iran nuclear site; City of Qazvin closed...
(Gateway Pundit) -- Iranian Fars News Service reported a massive explosion in Qazvin, Iran today. The origins may have been nuclear.
Arutz Sheva reported:
An immense explosion has been heard throughout the northern Iranian city of Qazvin, semi-official Fars news agency reported, and many casualties are expected from the blast.
Around 1.1 million people live in the city, which is located about 100 miles north of Tehran.
The blast may be related to nuclear development in Iran, according to the Los Angeles Times. Iranian officials in the past have strongly denied claims by Mujahedin Khalq Organization, or MKO, a cult-like Iranian exile group, that it has a secret nuclear enrichment facility in Abyek, near the major city, according to the daily.
The source of the blast remains undetermined. Several mystery explosions have been reported in the past several years in the region, none of which were ever verified.
Several casualties were reported. Roads leading to the site of the fire within a 2km radius have been closed off.

Iran's semi-official Fars news agency says a heavy explosion has rocked Qazvin city in the country's north, but later reports claimed that a large fire broke out Tuesday in an oil and wood storage facility, but only one person was injured.

However, local Governor Saeed Mirbaha was quoted as saying by Fars there were no deaths in the explosion, but firemen and rescue workers have intensified efforts to control a raging fire that has covered the sky in a large part of Qazvin city.

The city's emergency department said two rescuers had been badly injured from smoke inhalation.
The Tuesday report said the explosion happened in a storage facility in Qazvin, a commercial city with many stores. The city was once the seat of Persia's ancient capital and is located roughly 100 miles northwest of Tehran.
The Los Angeles Times reported that the city might also be home to a secret nuclear facility. According to their report Iranian officials in the past had strongly denied claims by "a cult-like" group of Iranian exiles called Mujahedin Khalq Organization, or MKO, who claim there is a secret nuclear enrichment facility in Abyek, in Qazvin.
According to the Times, the MKO has ties to "neoconservative opponents" of Iran's nuclear program in Washington.
An additional report claimed the in 2009, Fars reported that an inspection team from the International Atomic Energy Agency inspected a uranium mine in central Iran – a possible reference to the facility.

The mayor of Qazvin, Masoud Nosrati, denied earlier reports that there was an explosion at the site. He also said firefighters had contained the blaze.

The head of the emergency department Habibollah Behtooei also rejected earlier reports about a large number of casualties, saying nobody was in the facility when the fire began and only one rescue worker was injured.

Earlier, the semi-official Fars news agency said the explosion happened in a wood and oil storage facility, leaving nearly 50 people injured - many in serious condition. Many cargo depots are located in the city, some 130 kilometers (80 miles) west of the capital, Tehran.

Fars also said police have closed off roads to the area where the explosion took place, in an old neighborhood.

Local media in Iran frequently issue conflicting reports amid the chaos that breaks out during emergency situations and it is difficult to independently confirm them.

An Iranian stealth submarine sinks before targeting a mock US carrier in an a naval exercise

An Iranian stealth submarine sinks before targeting a mock US carrier in an a naval exercise
DEBKAfile Exclusive Report May 6, 2014, 4:55 PM (IDT)
Iranian Ghadir-class mini-submarine
Iranian Ghadir-class mini-submarine
A new Iranian Ghadir-class stealth mini-submarine, home-built with Chinese technology, recently sank near the Strait of Hormuz, while preparing for a Revolutionary Guards naval exercise to practice sinking or disabling a mock-up US aircraft carrier, debkafile’s military and intelligence sources report exclusively.
The sub was launched just a year ago.
The Iranians drew a tight veil of secrecy over the accident, curtailing the search for the estimated 10 crewmen to avoid drawing the notice of US or other intelligence agencies in the region.
Chinese and Russian teams secretly enlisted to help search for the sunken mini-submarine, quickly abandoned it saying that none of the crew could have survived. It was up to Iran to decide, they said, whether to continue the search at the risk of exposing its plans for sinking US carriers in a war contingency. So long as the sub stayed on the bottom, its stealth technology would make it hard for Western intelligence to locate it.
The ill-fated submarine was to have shown its paces by striking a replica of the USS Nimitz aircraft carrier Iran had built at the Bandar Abbas naval base.
The replica was spotted by US satellites. Challenged for an explanation, the Iranians first tried claiming it was to be used in a film documenting the naval forces present in the Persian Gulf.
But then on April 27, the Navy Commander Rear Adm. Ali Fadavi gave the game a way by saying: “Iranian forces should target the carrier in the trainings. We should learn about the weaknesses and strengths of our enemy.”
On May 6, Adm. Fadavi made a more warlike statement that clearly defined “the enemy” when he said: "They [Americans] know nothing. We have been making and sinking replicas of US destroyers, frigates and warships for long years, and we have sunk the replica of their vessels in 50 seconds through a series of operational measures."
The semi-official Fars agency quoted him as saying also: “Destroying the US navy remains one of the top operational goals of the Tehran forces. If war with the United States breaks out, the Iranians will attack American aircraft carriers in the Persian Gulf, their size making them easy to target.”
Tehran assumed its aggressive face the day before US National Security Adviser Susan Rice and senior US nuclear negotiator Wendy Sherman were due in Israel to persuade Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to live with the comprehensive nuclear accord shortly to be signed with Iran by the six world powers. They will also demand an Israel guarantee not to attack Iran’s nuclear facilities, although the prime minister made this threat on Holocaust Day on April 27.
The Iranian navy chief’s words were a message to Washington that if Netanyahu does engage in military action against Iran, the American fleet will be at risk.
Iran’s military planners had assigned the new Ghadir-class mini-submarines the task of an attack to bring the US navy fleet, especially the carriers, to a halt - easy prey for a thousand IRGC torpedo boats armed with sea-to-sea missiles to strike the stationary vessels from all directions.
Iranian naval experts count on sinking a carrier or leaving it too crippled to move to safety and forced to call on US bases in Qatar, Kuwait, Oman and Yemen for air cover.
Adm. Fadavi’s words, placing “destroying the US navy” among the operational goals of the Tehran forces” were meant to deter the US and Israel against military action.
debkafile’s military sources reveal that IRGC chiefs are also looking at ways of disabling US warships in the Mediterranean, to put them out of action for a second-strike attack on the Lebanese Hizballah by missiles or for sending bombers over Iran.
Not all Western naval experts agree on Tehran’s objectives or capabilities. Some discount the Iran’s speedboats’ ability to carry more than one sea-to-sea rocket - or two at most. And the US helicopters taking off from the targeted warship or ground bases would soon be able to sink them.
Iranian forces recently tested the option of arming the explosive speedboat’s crews with shoulder-carried anti-helicopter rockets, but gave up after 10 boats tipped over during the test.
The Revolutionary Guards Corps has a fleet of 10,000 small boats which are capable of great speed but easily overbalance.
If the US or Israel do decide to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities, the anchorages of these boats would be among their first targets. Each of these anchorages, which are strung along the Iranian Persian Gulf coast, houses around 100 boats.

Archaeologist claims to have found King David's Citadel

Skeptics question legitimacy of 'Bible archaeology' amidst rising concerns that digs escalate tension in eastern Jerusalem.
Associated Press
Published: 05.07.14, 10:04 / Israel Travel
An Israeli archaeologist says he has found the legendary citadel captured by King David in his conquest of Jerusalem, rekindling a longstanding debate about using the Bible as a field guide to identifying ancient ruins.

The claim by Eli Shukron, like many such claims in the field of biblical archaeology, has run into criticism. It joins a string of announcements by Israeli archaeologists saying they have unearthed palaces of the legendary biblical king, who is revered in Jewish religious tradition for establishing Jerusalem as its central holy city — but who has long eluded historians looking for clear-cut evidence of his existence and reign.

The present-day Israeli-Palestinian conflict is also wrapped up in the subject. The $10 million excavation, made accessible to tourists last month, took place in an Arab neighborhood of Jerusalem and was financed by an organization that settles Jews in guarded homes in Arab areas of east Jerusalem in an attempt to prevent the city from being divided. The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem, captured by Israel in 1967, as the capital of a future independent state.

Shukron, who excavated at the City of David archaeological site for nearly two decades, says he believes strong evidence supports his theory.
"This is the citadel of King David, this is the Citadel of Zion, and this is what King David took from the Jebusites," said Shukron, who said he recently left Israel's Antiquities Authority to work as a lecturer and tour guide. "The whole site we can compare to the Bible perfectly."
Most archaeologists in Israel do not dispute that King David was a historical figure, and a written reference to the "House of David" was found in an archaeological site in northern Israel. But archaeologists are divided on identifying Davidic sites in Jerusalem, which he is said to have made his capital.

Shukron's dig, which began in 1995, uncovered a massive fortification of five-ton stones stacked 21 feet (6 meters) wide. Pottery shards helped date the fortification walls to be 3,800 years old. They are the largest walls found in the region from before the time of King Herod, the ambitious builder who expanded the Second Jewish Temple complex in Jerusalem almost 2,100 years ago. The fortification surrounded a water spring and is thought to have protected the ancient city's water source.
The fortification was built 800 years before King David would have captured it from its Jebusite rulers. Shukron says the biblical story of David's conquest of Jerusalem provides clues that point to this particular fortification as David's entry point into the city.
In the second Book of Samuel, David orders the capture of the walled city by entering it through the water shaft. Shukron's excavation uncovered a narrow shaft where spring water flowed into a carved pool, thought to be where city inhabitants would gather to draw water. Excess water would have flowed out of the walled city through another section of the shaft Shukron said he discovered — where he believes the city was penetrated.
Shukron says no other structure in the area of ancient Jerusalem matches what David would have captured to take the city. The biblical account names it the "Citadel of David" and the "Citadel of Zion."

Ronny Reich, who was Shukron's collaborator at the site until 2008, disagrees with the theory. He said more broken pottery found from the 10th century BC, presumably King David's reign, should have been found if the fortification had been in use then.
Shukron said he only found two shards that date close to that time. He believes the reason he didn't find more is because the site was in continuous use and old pottery would have been cleared out by David's successors. Much larger quantities of shards found at the site date to about 100 years after King David's reign.
Reich said it was not possible to reach definitive conclusions about biblical connections without more direct archaeological evidence.
"The connection between archaeology and the Bible has become very, very problematic in recent years," Reich said.
Critics say that some archaeologists are too eager to hold a spade in one hand and a Bible in the other in a quest to verify the biblical narrative — either due to religious beliefs or to prove the Jewish people's historic ties to the land. But other respected Israeli archaeologists say recent finds match the biblical account more than naysayers claim.
Shukron, a veteran archaeologist who has excavated a number of significant sites in Jerusalem, said he drew his conclusions after nearly two decades exploring the ancient city.
"I know every little thing in the City of David. I didn't see in any other place such a huge fortification as this," said Shukron.
The biblical connection to the site is emphasized at the City of David archaeological park, where the "Spring Citadel" — the excavation's official name — has been retrofitted for tourists, including a movie projected on a screen in front of the fortification to illustrate how it may have looked 3,800 years ago. The City of David — located in east Jerusalem — is one of the most popular tourist sites in the holy city, with 500,000 tourists visiting last year.
"We open the Bible and we see how the archaeology and the Bible actually come together in this place," said Doron Spielman, vice president of the nonprofit Elad Foundation, which oversees the archaeological park. He carried a soft cover Bible in his hand as he ambled around the excavation.

The site has come under criticism because of the Elad Foundation's nationalistic agenda. Most of the foundation's funding comes from private donations from Jews in the U.S. and U.K., and its activities include purchasing Arab homes near the excavated areas and then helping Jews move in, sometimes under heavy guard.
Critics say this political agenda should not mix with archaeology.

A Russian aircraft carrier task group has sailed into the English Channel under escort by a Royal Navy warship.
HMS Dragon met the Russian warships in the south western approaches to the Channel on Wednesday and is shadowing them as they are expected to head into the North Sea and back to Russia.
The heavy carrier Admiral Kuznetsov is accompanied by the nuclear-powered Kirov class cruiser Peter the Great and several support ships after a five-month mission to the Mediterranean.
Naval sources said it was not unusual for Russian warships to pass through the channel and the Kuznetsov was also escorted past British waters on its way out in December when it passed Scotland heading south.
Capt Vadim Serga, spokesman for the Russian Northern Fleet, said: “The cruiser has accomplished its mission within the Navy task force in the Mediterranean and headed for Severomorsk. The aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov is expected to return to base by late May.”
The Russian ships have spent months training in the Mediterranean, where the Kuznetsov’s Sukhoi Su-33 fighters and Kamov Ka-27 helicopters carried out more than 350 practice sorties. The ships also took part in missile and artillery firing drills.
A Royal Navy spokesman said: "We can confirm that HMS Dragon was activated as the fleet-ready escort vessel. She met the task group centred around the Admiral Kuznetsov."
Last month RAF Typhoon fighter intercepted two Russian long-range Nato reconnaissance 'Bear' aircraft as they approached Nato airspace north of Scotland.

Hillary Clinton: No reason to continue Benghazi investigation

Hillary Clinton: No reason to continue Benghazi investigation

hillscreamingApparently, Hillary Clinton really doesn’t care about the truth in the Benghazi terror attack that saw four Americans killed.  Now, she’s claiming there’s no need to investigate, despite the smoking gun email that shows Susan Rice was coached to lie.
According to Democrats and their allies in the liberal media, any attempt to uncover the truth in the attack is either partisan politics or the advancement of a conspiracy theory.  Next thing you know, liberals will be telling us the attack never happened.  Or maybe they’ll claim Benghazi doesn’t exist…

The Washington Free Beacon reported:
In spite of recent key developments in the Benghazi investigation, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Wednesday there’s “no reason” to continue making inquiries into the 2012 terrorist attack.
“Of course there are a lot of reasons why, despite all of the hearings, all of the information that’s been provided, some choose not to be satisfied and choose to continue to move forward,” Clinton said. “That’s their choice. And I do not believe there is any reason for it to continue in this way, but they get to call the shots in the Congress.”

Russia Launches Two ICBMs, Rebuffs "Simulated Massive Nuclear Strike" As Part Of Military Drill

Russia Launches Two ICBMs, Rebuffs "Simulated Massive Nuclear Strike" As Part Of Military Drill

Tyler Durden's picture

Remember when Putin "de-escalated" and promised the Russian forces were being pulled back from the Ukraine border? That didn't last long. Fast forward 24 hours, when we learn that the very same Putin oversaw a military exercise involving Russia's nuclear forces.
And from AP:
While Putin said the exercise had been planned back in November, it comes as relations between Russia and the West have plunged to their lowest point since the Cold War over Ukraine.

Putin, speaking from the Defense Ministry's headquarters where he oversaw the exercise along with leaders of several ex-Soviet nations which are members of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, said that the maneuvers involved the military across the entire Russian territory, including the nation's nuclear forces.

Russian news wires said that the exercises simulated dealing a massive retaliatory nuclear strike in response to an enemy attack. The description of the exercise is unusually blunt, reflecting tensions with the West running high over Ukraine.

As part of the maneuvers, a Topol intercontinental ballistic missile launched from the Plesetsk launch pad in northwestern Russia successfully hit a designated target on the Kura testing range on the far eastern Kamchatka peninsula, the military said.

Two nuclear submarines of the Northern and Pacific Fleets, the Tula and the Podolsk, also fired intercontinental ballistic missiles.
So, what distraction will those who are selling into idiot hands to push stocks higher use today?

Eric Holder Just Sent This Threatening Letter To All Public Schools

Eric Holder Just Sent This Threatening Letter To All Public Schools

“The message here is clear...”

Photo Credit: Facebook/Remove the Idiot Eric Holder from Office!
Along with the Department of Education, Eric Holder’s Justice Department is reminding public schools in no uncertain terms that they are obligated to provide all children with an education regardless of their immigration status.
In an apparent attempt to clarify existing guidelines, the federal government sent a letter to schools indicating the agencies are “aware of student enrollment practices that may chill or discourage the participation, or lead to the exclusion, of students.”
The letter emphasizes how loose the restrictions are regarding what type of documentation schools are required to accept, basically meaning there is no excuse for questioning why a child obviously in the country illegally is receiving taxpayer-funded schooling and/or child care.
“We want to be sure every school leader understand the legal requirements under the Constitution and federal laws,” the letter states, “and it is our hope that this update will address some of the misperceptions out there.”
One is hard pressed, however, to find any mention of the government’s responsibility to provide free education to criminal inhabitants within the structure of the U.S. Constitution. In any case, the letter goes on to spell out requirements in no uncertain terms.
“The message here is clear,” it read, “let all children who live in your district enroll in your public schools.”
Parents of children with only a foreign birth certificate are given ample leeway in providing alternative ‘documentation,’ including an entry in a family Bible, for instance.
Holder and other leftist leaders are determined to integrate illegals completely into society to the extent that actually holding them accountable for their crimes would not only be nearly impossible, but in itself an illegality.
Ensuring the next generation of criminals is indoctrinated within the public school system is one vital step in achieving that goal.

Armed Services Chairman on Obama: ‘Our Foreign Policy Is a Mess’ THATS IT IS HIS JOB TO DESTORY OUR NATION HE IS FROM EDOM READ T BIBLN OF CAIN

Armed Services Chairman on Obama: ‘Our Foreign Policy Is a Mess’

President Obama’s wrongheaded view of the world has weakened America’s military and turned foreign policy into a “mess” — and Republicans bear some of the responsibility, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee said yesterday.
“It is no accident that the expansion of Russia and China has come at the exact moment when we are dismantling our military and retreating from the world,” Rep. Buck McKeon (R- Calif.) said in a speech at The Heritage Foundation aimed at drawing attention to defense and national security issues.
“With Russia invading Ukraine, China provoking our Pacific allies, al-Qaeda regrouping, North Korea banging the drum, and ongoing turmoil in the Middle East, I think the president has lost sight of his purpose here,” McKeon said.
McKeon’s appearance at Heritage was part of “Protect America Month” events organized by the think tank.
Americans, McKeon argued, ought to be asking what the nation’s central foreign policy goal is, and what role the U.S. military has in advancing it.  He said:
“Put plainly, our foreign policy is a mess. We have no coherent strategy.  I’m not sure if we’re supposed to be pivoting to Asia, pivoting to the Middle East, or pivoting back to Europe.”
The California Republican, who announced four months ago that he will retire next January after 22 years in Congress, argued that most Americans want to live “in peace and security,” free to prosper and make their own decisions without worrying about what’s going on in “faraway lands.”
He cited Abraham Lincoln’s formula that government’s legitimate aim is “to do for a community of people whatever they need to have done, but cannot do for themselves.”
“An individual can go out and find health care coverage without the government,” McKeon said. “They can save for retirement without the government. They can start a business without the government. But they cannot resist foreign aggression without a strong standing military.”
At the core, he said, both diplomacy and military power are services that a government provides to citizens.  Obama has not understood this:
“Instead of using the military to deter terrorists and aggressors abroad, this administration uses regulations and bureaucrats to deter innovators and entrepreneurs at home.
“Instead of striking a balance where government is discreet at home while projecting great strength abroad, government is intrusive at home and weak overseas.”
However, McKeon insisted, rather than effectively responding to Obama in the budget process, Republicans “played his game” and “fell into his trap.” And now, he said, painful choices leave many military spending needs unmet.
In the “chairman’s mark” for the National Defense Authorization Act that he introduced today, the California Republican said, he requested $521 billion for the base defense budget and $79 billion for the windup of the war in Afghanistan. Defense spending comes in $45 billion under last year’s request, as required by previous budget deals Congress cut with the White House, he said.
“Through smart planning, rearrangement of capital and resources, targeted cuts, and reduction of some bureaucracy, we’ve been able to shield our military from a crippling blow,” McKeon remarked. “This is the last year we’ll be able to triage the pain. Next year — unless something changes — it’s really going to hurt.”
Identified savings will allow the Pentagon to keep the USS George Washington, the Navy’s front-line carrier, in Asia as well as to purchase more Tomahawk missiles, Growler electronic aircraft, body armor, and improved aircraft ejection seats.
However, the A-10 Warthog air-support craft will go into storage for later use, McKeon said, to make way for the F-35 even though that plane “is better suited to do other jobs.”
Without tackling mandatory and entitlement spending elsewhere in the federal budget, McKeon said, in next year’s defense plan“we’re going to have to whittle our big stick down to a twig, and our diplomacy will suffer for it.”

LET ME SAY YES WE NEED TO REPENT BUT IT DONT MATTER JESUS IS COME IN This Religious Leader’s Outlook For America Is Chilling

This Religious Leader’s Outlook For America Is Chilling…

He then spoke directly to Barack Obama...

For millions of conservative Christians, the signs that America is moving away from its moral roots have increased exponentially in recent years. Many feel it is only a matter of time until God withholds His favor from our country, as the Bible records He did in nations that willfully disregarded His commands.
Others, however, think that ship has already sailed.
During a prayer meeting this week commemorating the faith-based leadership of George Washington, rabbi and author Jonathan Cahn touched on exactly that painful subject.
He began by citing our first president’s remarks during his first inaugural address.
“The propitious smile of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which heaven itself hath ordained,” he said.
Speaking to a crowd of legislators, government officials, and other prominent guests, Cahn touched on some uncomfortable truths about America’s deteriorating relationship with God.
“We stand tonight on Capitol Hill,” he continued, “in the city named after the one who gave that prophetic warning, to ask, can a nation drive out the name of God from its public square, and the Word of God from its schools, and the ways of God from its culture and still expect the smiles of God to shine upon it?”
Leftist policies continue to relegate God to houses of worship, while our founders recognized that freedom can only exist where people recognize the ultimate authority of a Higher Power. The current trend, Cahn explained, has brought about devastating policies that displease God.
“Can the blood of 50 million unborn children cry out to heaven from this land and the smiles of heaven still remain?” he asked.
He specifically addressed legislators and justices gathered for the event, encouraging them to pass and interpret laws in a manner congruent with God’s will. He then spoke directly to Barack Obama.
“Mr. President, can you place your left hand on the Word of God to assume your office and with your right hand sign laws which break the very Word upon which you swore and still expect the smiles of heaven to remain?” he asked.
The event, hosted by Rep. Michele Bachmann and emceed by former Gov. Mike Huckabee, also counted a number of other prominent conservatives and faith leaders among its attendees.

State Dept FUNDED & TRAINED Benghazi Terrorists, Ansar al Sharia

State Dept FUNDED & TRAINED Benghazi Terrorists, Ansar al Sharia


The most pressing question about the second 9/11 terrorist attack on America, this time in Benghazi, is “why did Hillary Clinton and the U.S. State Department fund & train the very same terrorists in Libya responsible for murdering Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith and Navy SEALs: Glen Doherty & Tyrone Woods”?

This question must be answered, along with a reason “why Hillary Clinton & the State Department denied over 100 requests for security enhancements and fortifications, despite over 230  violent attacks in Libya over the year leading up to 9/11, including the attacks on Chris Stevens before the video was even posted on youtube“? 
To the right is one such request documented by Regional Security Officer (RSO) Eric Nordstrom, who was stationed in Libya and assigned to Embassy Security by the State Department. Eric Nordstrom appeared to testify at the October 10 Oversight Committee and swore under oath, with penalty of perjury:
“You want to know what bothered me so much about being assigned in Libya? It’s not the hardships, it’s not the gunfire, it’s not the threats. It’s dealing & fighting against the people, the programs & the personnel who were supposed to be supporting me. And I added to it by saying, ‘Jim (Bacigalupo) for me, it’s as if the Taliban is on the inside of the building”.
Listen to Eric Nordstrom’s sworn testimony below:
According to David Petraeus & Rep. Peter King, whose city was devastated by the first terrorist attack on 9/11, RSO Nordstrom was not too far off because it was Ansar al Sharia on the inside of the building.
Led by policy directed by President Barack Obama, US State Department officials Patrick Kennedy & Charlene Lamb testified under oath, with penalty of perjury, before the Oversight Committee on October 10, 2012.
The Kennedy & Lamb testimony revealed:
“the State Department ’backfilled’ US Special Force Operators protecting America’s Embassy & the Ambassador in Libya, and instead opted to outsource US SFO skill sets with ‘Libyan Militia”.
Houston, we have a problem.
Per RSO Nordstrom’s testimony, part of the Libyan militia was the al-Qaeda-linked, Ansar al-Sharia. Furthermore, per Oversight testimony and evidence, Ansar al Sharia not only threatened Chris Stevens’ life in June 2012, but also attacked the annex Stevens was assigned to in June, blowing out a compound wall. The June attack was called a “terrorist test run”. The test-run or pre-attack occurred one month prior to any video being posted on youtube.
Again, the June “test-attack” or pre-attack was carried out one month prior to the video being posted on YouTube in July, which was subsequently used an excuse by radical Islam, and accepted by the administration, for the “attack on the US Consulate”—an intentional false statement made by multiple government officials, misleading the American people about the CIA annex in Benghazi and the 9/11 terrorist attack that claimed the lives of four brave Americans.
Ultimately, Ansar al Sharia claimed credit for killing Stevens, Smith, Woods & Doherty after 9/11/2012.
After her “accepting responsibility“, Hillary Clinton easily dismissed Ansar al Sharia’s public assertion made on both Twitter and Facebook for murdering Ambassador Stevens, Sean Smith, and SEALs:  Ty Woods & Glen Doherty.
Posting something on Facebook is not exactly evidence“, Secretary of State Clinton shrugged it off, but she must have forgotten the little-watched video, that was only posted on YouTube, until her friend Mohammed Morsi released it after seizing control of the Egyptian media in August: two months after June, when Americans in Libya were already under attack.
Listen below to Representative Dan Burton (R-IA) press the State Department officials, Patrick Kennedy & Charlene Lamb, who testified under oath, with the threat of perjury, that State Department “backfilled the skill set offered by US Special Forces with Libyan militia”.
Note RSO Eric Nordstrom’s comment about Ansar al Sharia, in fact, being part of the Libyan militia: 

To the right, Conservative Report has verified the money trail.

Libya does not have a proper, uniformed military anymore, thanks to Barack Hussein Obama. Instead, the State Department paid the “Libyan Militia” to protect Ambassador Stevens, who is the representative of the United States President stationed abroad.
See page 170 to verify the details of the State Department funding foreign military in Libya to the tune of $150,000. Compare the same small number afforded local terrorist in Libya, to the hundreds of millions afforded other foreign militaries in the region (like Lebanon’s $100M where Hamas has power!), brought to them courtesy of the US taxpayer.
As Col. Bing West stated, and was supported by former NSA Director Bud McFarlane, murdering a U.S. Ambassador is in fact an act of war.
Yet, the attack on America by Ansar al Sharia has still yet to even been met with a military response. Instead, the sleeping-with-the-enemy President now has another hostage crisis on his hands in Algeria, for which US Special Forces have, once again, yet to even respond.
Maybe President Obama will send the FBI to investigate Al Qaeda’s attack & killing Americans in Algeria, just like he did with Benghazi, and handle the act of war like it’s a “criminal investigation” to be handled in civil court.
Every US President prior Obama understood, acts of war are responded to by the United States Military, and usually in a timely manner, less more Americans be left vulnerable. Afterall, affording terrorists, committing acts of war on America, the same rights as those reserved for American citizens, is nothing less than appeasement.
Furthermore, a Conservative Report source has come forward to expose the “2012 State Department Diplomatic Security Annual Newsletter” (which is embedded at the end of this article).
The State Department newsletter shows American assets training the Libyan militia, who would go onto murder Americans on the second 9/11 terrorist attack on America, in Libya for which We The People indeed funded.

This time, claiming ignorance is not acceptable, especially considering the 1998 American Embassy bombing in Kenya, when Hillary was first lady and her husband Bill Clinton was a selfishly, preoccupied President. Bill was just a little too concerned with his impeachment proceedings to pay attention to commanders on the ground in Kenya.
What’s more revealing is, at the time, current UN Ambassador Susan Rice served under Bill Clinton in the State Department. She was the Ambassador to Africa. It was two years prior to the first 9/11, and was result of the Clinton State Department denying official requests for security enhancements & fortifications, made by Americans operating at the US Embassy in Kenya. Sound familiar? It’s deja’vu, all over again.
The State Department’s refusal to secure its embassy & Ambassador in Kenya resulted in the death of 212 people & wounded 4,000. It was also the eighth anniversary of Americans stationed in Saudi Arabia, who leads OPEC.
It is important to note that the State Department’s main function is to secure American Embassies and Ambassadors stationed around the world, especially in terrorist hot-spots–like Benghazi, Libya.

Lt. Col Wood was the Commander in Charge of the American security detsil in Libya & he testified:
“I feel duty bound to come forward in order to inform and provide a portion of ground truth information.  I feel a sense of honor for those individuals who have died in the service of their country.
I realize much of my work in Libya was entangled in sensitive government work… The killing of a US Ambassador is a rare and extraordinary thing and requires our attention as a people.
As a citizen I made the determination that this outweighs all other interests and will risk whatever circumstances may result from my testimony”.
The two would go onto expose a shocking revelation.
The United States of America not only denied several request for additional security to protect Ambassador Stevens (eg: a Marine Security Detachment – MSD – is typically assigned to every Ambassador stationed abroad, except for Stevens), but taxpayers also paid for outsourcing to the Libyan militia, and in part, Ansar al Sharia. Special Forces were then used to train the “Libyan militia” to take-over their job of protecting Stevens. 
Marching onward, the Conservative Report will also expose the details around the lack of response, but as already covered, Sean Smith sent a private message to a friend saying:
I hope I don’t die tonight. I caught one of the guards in charge of protecting us taking pictures of our facility”.
Note found in Benghazi
What wasn’t disclosed was that the “Libyan guard” Sean referred to, was atop of a building across the street from the CIA compound, and was casing the location out, for obvious reason.
The Libyan guard, supplemented by the State Department to protect Team Stevens, was scouting for an ambush by Ansar al Sharia, who went onto attack the facility, later that night.
General Petraeus commented, “the guards left their posts moments before the attack began, allowing Ansar al-Sahria to just waltz right in the front door & kill Smith and Stevens”.
Government officials have a video copy of the live feed provided by 2 US Drones & they also have the live radio communications between Special Force Operators.
For all this, the American Secretary of State, UN Ambassador, Secretary of Defense & President all blamed a spiteful video, despite the CIA Director in Benghazi & Libyan President referring to Benghazi “a precise, well planned terrorist attack” the day after, on Sept 12,2012.
As talking heads of the Obama administration were busy, blaming a little-seen YouTube video, they were also exalting America’s freedom of religion to Libya. They ironically did so without mention of the multiple lawsuits the Obama administration faces, with the same respect to freedom of religion here, in America.
Below is the State Dept newsletter, entitled, “Benghazi: 2012 State Department Annual Security Newsletter.” The newsletter depicts U.S. Military training the Libyan Militia. It also details the average amount of security that all Ambassadors receive, including Ambassador Susan Rice & even Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. 
hillary arafat thumbIt is very telling that Rice & Clinton have more than enough Diplomatic Security for themselves, while an Ambassador assigned to a terrorist-haven like Benghazi, lacked even the basic security of a Marine Security Detachment, and was instead left with only Libyan “turn-coats” funded by the taxpayer, at the discretion of the Obama State Department.
Listen to Chris Stevens below regarding the lack of security in Libya and existing vacuum, from which terrorists such as Ansar al Sharia and Al Qaeda were allowed to organize & attack our mission. And not only did so unimpeded, but with US aid. It has been a full year since Stevens had traveled to Benghazi in November 2011, and he issued an urgent security request on September 1st, 2012 to no avail by those he reported to in the State Department.
Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty & Ty Woods never wavered in their duty to our nation & her people, but the support for them & for Special Mission Benghazi certainly did waver, as Eric Nordstrom and Lt. Col. Wood testified about under oath.

Although Secretary Hillary Clinton already accepted responsibility for the murder of four brave Americans in Libya, and in fact, funded the operation, it is time now for her to accept accountability.
Below is an audio mix regarding Benghazi played on Conservative Report Radio as early as October 2012, after the Oversight Hearing and testimony.

Watch Conservative Media's Favorite Benghazi Myth Fall Apart

Mullen And Pickering Destroy Notion Obama Withheld Military Assistance

Blog ››› ››› ERIC HANANOKI

Retired Admiral Mike Mullen and former Ambassador Thomas Pickering today debunked the conservative media myth that the Obama administration failed to deploy adequate military resources to Benghazi, Libya, in response to the September 11, 2012, attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission. Mullen told members of Congress that the "military did everything they possibly could that night." Pickering agreed, testifying that the military is not always "positioned to come in short notice to deal with those issues."
Mullen and Pickering led the State Department Accountability Review Board (ARB), which issued an independent report in December about the attacks. Both men are testifying today at a House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing led by Republican Rep. Darrell Issa, who, along with members of the conservative media, have attempted to politicize the attacks to criticize the Obama administration.
During his questioning time, Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) noted that Republicans have suggested the Obama administration "withheld assistance on the night of the attacks for political reasons." As Media Matters has documented, conservative media -- led by Fox News -- have echoed Republicans in persistently using this line of attack when criticizing the Obama administration over Benghazi.
Mullen, who served as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from 2007-2011, debunked the myth, stating that the "military did everything they possibly could that night. They just couldn't get there in time." Mullen also detailed the "many forces that moved that night" and said a military response "is not something you can just wish to happen instantly. There's a lot of planning, preparation" to "do it as rapidly as one can do it." From his testimony:
REP. ELIJAH CUMMINGS: Admiral Mullen, in your review, did you have access to all military information, data, and people necessary to evaluate the military's response?
MULLEN: I did.
CUMMINGS: And I understand from your interview transcript that you conducted this examination not once but twice. Is that correct?
MULLEN: The first time Mr. Cummings was to -- with actually, with all members of the ARB, we went to the Pentagon to review it in detail. And then the second time I went back by myself when this became an issue that there were certainly questions being raised about it. I went back again to verify and validate what I had done before and I found nothing different in that, the military response. The military did everything they possibly could that night. They just couldn't get there in time.
MULLEN: It goes to our core, when people are in trouble, to do everything we possibly can to help them out. And there were many forces that moved that night, including a special operation force in Europe that ended up in a base in southern Europe, a large special operations force from the United States which moved under direction as soon as -- as soon as they were given orders. A group of Marines that essentially were sent in from Spain into Tripoli the next day. It literally became -- this is not something you can just wish to happen instantly. There's a lot of planning, preparation, as rapidly -- to do it as rapidly as one can do it.
CUMMINGS: So admiral, what do you say in response to those members who continue to this day to imply that the military somehow fell down on the job?
MULLEN: They didn't fall down on the job and I just completely disagree with that view.
Pickering seconded Mullen's testimony, stating that America has "over 270 consulates and embassies around the world in some very isolated and strange places" and "we are not able to count on the U.S. military, as Admiral Mullen said, always being positioned to come in short notice to deal with those issues":
PICKERING: I think the point that has just been made by Admiral Mullen is very important. We have over 270 consulates and embassies around the world in some very isolated and strange places. The responsibility for their primary security rests with the host country. Where that does not exist as it did in Benghazi, it falls back on us to do it. The report we provided you and others provides the recommendations to deal with those particular cases. We are not able to count on the U.S. military, as Admiral Mullen said, always being positioned to come in short notice to deal with those issues. So we must do better on the ground.

Could This Mean The “Butcher Of Benghazi” Hillary Clinton Is Headed To Prison

There’s a huge movement powered by social media. Help spread the word!

Hillary Clinton, known as the “Butcher of Benghazi” after the release of the scathing report “Breach of Duty: Hillary Clinton and Catastrophic Failure in Benghazi,” refused dozens of requests for additional security at the Benghazi consulate.
The report also reveals that Clinton held back a special forces State Department Foreign Emergency Support Team on the night of September 11, 2012—essentially giving a stand down order—leaving Islamic radicals to butcher Chris Stevens, Shawn Smith, Ty Woods, and Glen Doherty.  
Clinton and Obama couldn’t reveal that they left Americans to be slaughtered, and so began the fantasy about a “protest turned violent” over an anti-Muslim YouTube video virtually no one had seen. When that became laughable, Clinton and Obama then blamed the CIA for bad intel about the phony protest.  This was also a lie as revealed in a huge cache of emails obtained by the government watchdog group Judicial Watch last week.  
According to the emails, Clinton and the rest of the Obama administration were feverishly working to cover up the fact that al-Qaeda had attacked our embassy. Feverishly trying to cover up the fact that the consulate didn’t have sufficient security. And feverishly trying to create a lie big enough that the entire American public would fall for it.  Clinton and Obama cared more about saving their political careers than saving the lives of four Americans.
Obama and Clinton stood by as four Americans were murdered.
If a murder is in progress, and the President of the United States and Secretary of State do nothing, that is accessory to murder. And up until now, Clinton and Obama have gotten away with murder.  
But there’s a new sheriff in town: “Benghazi Bulldog” Trey Gowdy, appointed to head the Select Committee on Benghazi. And this Sheriff is going after Clinton and Obama with guns blazing!  
Plus, there’s a huge movement powered by social media calling for Hillary Clinton to be sent to prison for her role in the Benghazi massacre. The movement is called “Hillary Clinton for Prison 2016.”
We can only hope…
