| Senator John McCain traveled all over the Middle East during the 2012 Presidential election. One of his stops, during his travels, was with Chris Stevens our then newly appointed U.S. Ambassador to Libya. Click here to see July 7th, 2012 photo of John McCain and Chris Stevens.
John McCain: "Chris (Chris Stevens) insisted on personally making me a cappuccino (July 7th, 2012), a task that he carried out with as much pride and proficiency as his diplomatic mission."
Surely Senator John McCain didn't see a problem with the security surrounding Chris Stevens, during his July 7th, 2012 visit, or he would have told us. Or would he?
| Hillbilly :: Benghazi: Senator John McCain, Mitt Romney And Benjamin Netanyahu. Are They Hiding Something?
October, 2012 Senator John McCain accused the Obama administration of a Benghazi coverup similar to Watergate.
"Somebody said the other day to me that this is as bad as Watergate. Nobody died in Watergate," said McCain, in reference to the break-in, subsequent cover-up, investigation and public scandal that led President Richard Nixon to resign in 1974. Read more.
Remember this was during the 2012 Presidential election and the Republican Party was desperate to pin something on the Obama administration. Something that would stick and the September 11th, 2012 attack on the consulate in Benghazi was something the Republican Party, John McCain and Mitt Romney could use to defeat Barack Obama, and use it they did. They used their Fox News pals and right-wing radio personalities, like Rush Limbaugh, to cover it 24/7 and Benghazi trended on Twitter for weeks.
Remember Mitt Romney's statement shortly after the attack on the Benghazi consulate?
"I'm outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi," Romney said in the statement. "It's disgraceful that the Obama Administration's first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks."
Was Mitt Romney really outraged or did he feel like the Benghazi consulate attack was his ticket to becoming the next President of the United States of America? I have no idea, but Mitt Romney was looking for something like the Benghazi consulate attack earlier in the year. Specifically May 17th, 2012 at his secretly video taped fund raiser.
Audience member: If you get the call as president, and you had hostages…Ronald Reagan was able to make a statement, even before he became, was actually sworn in—
Audience member: the hostages were released—
Romney: on the day of his inauguration, yeah.
Audience member: So my question is, really, how can you sort of duplicate that scenario?
Romney: Ohhhh. [A few chuckles in audience.] I'm gonna ask you, how do I duplicate that scenario.
Make no mistake about it Republicans thought the Benghazi consulate attack was not only their ticket to the Presidency, but also their ticket to a majority in the US Senate. Senator Mitch McConnell October 11, 2012.
“It leaves you with the suspicion that since the president was in the campaign going around reminding everybody that Bin Laden’s gone and we were out of Iraq and we would soon be out of Afghanistan, and implying that the war on terror was over, that the campaign just felt it was inconvenient that we had a terrorist attack that killed four Americans,” McConnell said. “As I said, inconveniently – a month before the election.”
Senator John McCain wasn't the only one rubbling shoulders with folks in the Middle East, during the 2012 Presidential election. Mitt Romney spent a little time there to, in July of 2012, and left with over $1 million in his Presidential campaign pocket.
The Jerusalem Post
US Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney left Israel for Poland Monday with over $1 million more in his campaign war chest than when he arrived, following the first-ever presidential fund-raiser in the country.
Some 47 people attended breakfast at a room in Jerusalem’s King David Hotel with Romney, his wife, and one of his sons, at the price of $50,000 per couple. Romney spoke for some 20 minutes and focused on the economy, both in the US and in Israel.
So Mitt Romney goes to Israel and raises over $1 million what does that have to do with anything? Can you spell Benjamin Netanyahu? Benjamin Netanyahu and Mitt Romney have been friends since they worked together at the Boston Consulting Group in 1976 and Benjamin Netanyahu was betting on Mitt Romney to win the US 2012 Presidential election. So if the September 11th, 2012 the Benghazi consulate attack would have helped make Mitt Romney President of the United States, would that have made Benjamin Netanyahu a very happy man?
I'm not a conspiracy theorist and I'm not suggesting the Benghazi consulate attack was a right-wing conspiracy, but on the other hand I'm not ruling it out. However when we take a real close look at the 2012 Presidential election and ask: Who would benefit from September 11th, 2012 (9-11) attack on the Benghazi consulate just days before the Presidential election? The answer is clear, and it's for that reason I'm suggesting Senator John McCain, Mitt Romney and Benjamin Netanyahu might know more than they have told us.
