Benghazi Whistle-Blower Witness Greg Hicks Responds to Questions from Rep Trey Goudy (SC-R): “I Was Stunned. My Jaw Dropped. I Was Embarrassed” After Susan Rice TV Appearance on 5 Sunday Talk Shows
Today during the House Government Oversight and Reform Committee on Benghazi hearings, “Whistle-Blower” witness Greg Hicks time and time again contradicted the Obama Administration’s, the Hillary Clinton State Department’s and the concocted BS that has been put forth regarding the before during and after Benghazi consulate terror attacks. During part of his testimony Greg Hicks answered questions from Rep. Trey Goudy (SC-R) and told the committee that Susan Rice never consulted State Department officials in Libya before making her five appearance on Sunday Shows shilling her lie to the American people that the Benghazi attack was a result of an anti-Islamic VIDEO. Greg Hicks was the highest ranking officer at the time on the ground in Libya, following the death of Ambassador Stevens and Susan Rice never talked to him. When Hicks was asked about Ambassador Susan Rice’s performance on the Sunday talk shows, Hicks stated … “I Was Stunned. My Jaw Dropped. I Was Embarrassed.”
Must see VIDEO … hours after the Benghazi Consulate attack, the President of Libya said it was an attack with possible terror links. When Hicks was asked, did the President of Libya ever mentioned a spontaneous protest over a VIDEO tape, he answered, NO. Hicks was asked, when Ambassador Stevens spoke to you just minutes before he died, as a dying declaration, what precisely did he say to you? Hicks responded, “he said, Greg, we are under attack”. Rep. Goudy asked, did he [Stevens] mention one word about a protest or demonstration? Hicks responded, no, he did not.
EXIT QUESTION: So who does not think that Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton blew the Benghazi consulate attack response and tried to cover it up? Obama sent his minions out to cover this up. Sorry LEFT, not even Richard Nixon had anyone die as a result of Watergate.
‘This Week’ Interview: U.S. Ambassador Susan Rice blames attack on spontaneous protest
‘FOX News Sunday’ – Susan Rice blames attack on spontaneous protest from offensive video, not pre-planned and was not against US foreign policy
Hillary Clinton during earlier Benghazi Senate hearing caught in lie and unable to answer simple question, why didn’t you just ask individuals on the ground what happened? That was too difficult according to Hillary.
From Reuters, Israel has bombed Syria for the second time this week. Powerful explosions rocked the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday. Syrian state television said Israeli rockets had struck a military facility just north of the capital. Earlier this week, Israel carried out a bombing run to prevent missile transfers to Islamist militants (VIDEO). President Barack Obama defended Israel’s right to bomb targets inside Syria to protect themselves. Syria is a tinderbox about ready to explode and we have a “dithering” president who makes claims of acting if a “red line” was crossed and then backs off as he does with domestic policy like the clueless over his head “Community Organizer” in Chief he is. Being President is just a little different when you play chicken against those in the Middle East than the GOP isn’t Barack? Obama is between a “Barack” and a hard place and has no idea what to do. How’s that Arab Spring working out for you Mr. President?
Israeli jets devastated Syrian targets near Damascus on Sunday in a heavy overnight air raid that Western and Israeli officials called a new strike on Iranian missiles bound for Lebanon’s Hezbollah.
As Syria’s two-year-old civil war veered into the potentially atomic arena of Iran’s confrontation with Israel and the West over its nuclear program, people were woken in the Syrian capital by explosions that shook the ground like an earthquake and sent pillars of flame high into the night sky.
“Night turned into day,” one man told Reuters from his home at Hameh, near one of the targets, the Jamraya military base.
Amateur VIDIO of huge Explosion outside Damascus, Syria
Israeli warplanes bombed the outskirts of Damascus early Sunday for the second time in recent days, according to Syrian state media and reports from activists, signaling a sharp escalation in tensions between the neighboring countries that had already been exacerbated by the conflict raging in Syria.
Though there was no official confirmation that Israel had carried out the attack, the Israeli military later announced that it had deployed two of its Iron Dome rocket defense batteries near its northern border in response to what it called “ongoing situational assessments.”
Videos posted on the Internet by activists showed a huge fireball erupting on Mount Qassioun, a landmark hill overlooking the capital on which the Syrian government has deployed much of the firepower it is using against rebel-controlled areas surrounding the city.
Our hearts and prayers go out to the victims of this senseless act of terror and to their families and friends

Could the Riots Spread … US Embassies in Algeria, Tunisia warn of Protests Tell Americans to avoid crowded places
As President Obama leads from behind, AP warns that American embassies in Algeria and Tunisia could be next as Islamists protest continue. Protests in Cairo, Egypt and Libya, including the deaths of Ambassador Stevens and three other Embassy staffers could boil over in to Algeria and Tunisia. Obama’s response is to condemn the attacks and then go off and continue his campaign rather than stay in Washington and be president.
The American embassies in Algeria and Tunisia warned of more protests Wednesday, following attacks by protesters in neighboring Libya in which the U.S. ambassador and three embassy staff were killed.
In an emergency message, the embassy in Tunis warned Americans to avoid crowded places, saying that even gatherings “intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence.” The embassy in Algiers had similar advice.
The Algiers embassy said unspecified groups were using online social networks to organize demonstrations “to protest a range of issues” there Wednesday. The statement out of Tunis cited “media reports” indicating protests were planned, but said the embassy remained open.
leading from Behind: How’s That Obama Cairo Apology Speach Looking Now? US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens & Three others Killed in Libya (Sean Smith & Two Marines)… Suffocated & Gun Shot Wounds?
So America, how that “Hopey-Changey” Barack Obama Cairo speech looking now?
President Barack Obama made it one of his first priorities to head off to Cairo, Egypt and speak to the Muslim world in his so-called Cairo speech (VIDEO), calling for renewed Middle East peace talks as well as an agenda for economic and social development in the region. How naive does Obama’s Cairo speech look this morning as two US Embassy’s were attacked yesterday, one in Cairo, Egypt and the other in Libya? Especially since Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other embassy officials were killed yesterday and the US State Department provided an apology on of all days, September 11, the 11th anniversary of 9-11.
Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit – for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.
Indeed, faith should bring us together. That is why we are forging service projects in America that bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That is why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah’s Interfaith dialogue and Turkey’s leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. Around the world, we can turn dialogue into Interfaith service, so bridges between peoples lead to action – whether it is combating malaria in Africa, or providing relief after a natural disaster.
Take a good look what Islamists killed, a man that was there to help the very people freed from dictator Muammar Gaddafi
Sarah Palin weighed into the fiasco on Facebook stating, “Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs.” Where was Obama when all this was going on? What took so long for Obama to condemn the act? Obama was so quick to jump into the fray of the Trayvon Martin murder case and the Cambrige, MA police incident, yet not the attacks on US Embassy’s and murdering of US citizens? Barack Obama should be in front of the American people yesterday denouncing this. But of course Obama is leading from behind and truly showing his smallness as the incredible shirking President needs to focus poll in order to find the right words.
A note to President Obama, this was an act of war … stay home today and off the campaign trail and pretend that you are the President of the United States. Instead what came as a response for the US, a State Department disgraceful apology that the Obama WH is trying to distance itself from. So who is to blame for the ill-advised apology, President Barack Obama or Sec. of State Hillary Clinton? Some one has to be to blame or is now one in charge?
Not only did they choose a crucial stage of the US election campaign, but the assault took place on the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11.
As such, President Barack Obama will come under overwhelming pressure to respond when he wakes in Washington this morning. Put bluntly, the destruction of diplomatic premises resulting in the murder of an ambassador would amount to an act of war.
Given that America’s most senior representative in Libya appears to have been killed – with some reports suggesting that three other staff also died – Mr Obama’s response will have to be far tougher.
Sorry Mr. President but you are going to have to do a lot more than simply offer your outrage and condemning the killings. It was originally reported that the killings were a result of a rocket attack. However, some are now reporting that Ambassador Stevens died of suffocation and the other three embassy workers of gun shot wounds.
The Americans were targeted in an attack in their car, trying to move to a safer venue away from the violent protests that erupted at the U.S. Consulate, Reuters reported. Stevens died of suffocation, while the three other personnel were killed by gunshot wounds, CBS News reports.
This was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. Guess who was President then? My how the similarities of Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are just uncanny. How in the hell does Barack Obama not stay in Washington, DC and act like the President as the Middle East burns? Instead, its campaigning as usual.

Christopher Stevens, US Ambassador to Libya Killed Along with 3 Others US Embassy staff officials in Rocket Attack … Obama WH Finally Confirms Story
Look what happens when you apologies to Islamists …
The US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, and three other US Embassy staff officials have been killed in a rocket attack on their car during Islamist protests. The were killed near the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Can you say, ACT OF WAR! For hours there was no confirmation by the US State Department that Christopher Stevens had been murdered. Finally the Obama WH has confirmed the accounts, Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Embassy staff members have been killed. Sorry, but it is time for Barack Obama to do his job. Enough of the Comedian in Chief, enough of the Campaigner in Chief, enough of making a joke of the Presidency … its time to be Commander in Chief. This was an act of war against a US Embassy and the murder of a US Ambassador and three other Embassy officials. What are you going to do?
The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.
Gunmen had attacked and burned the U.S. consulate in the eastern city of Benghazi, a center of last year’s uprising against Muammar Gaddafi, late on Tuesday evening, killing one U.S. consular official. The building was evacuated.
The Libyan official said the ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was being driven from the consulate building to a safer location when gunmen opened fire.
“The American ambassador and three staff members were killed when gunmen fired rockets at them,” the official in Benghazi told Reuters.

Statement from Obama White House finally released.How long did this take? It would appear that the Obama WH has a faster turnaround on making opposition political ads in reaction to the GOP than they do getting ahead of this foreign policy nightmare and death of our US embassy workers.
I strongly condemn the outrageous attack on our diplomatic facility in Benghazi, which took the lives of four Americans, including Ambassador Chris Stevens. Right now, the American people have the families of those we lost in our thoughts and prayers. They exemplified America’s commitment to freedom, justice, and partnership with nations and people around the globe, and stand in stark contrast to those who callously took their lives.
I have directed my Administration to provide all necessary resources to support the security of our personnel in Libya, and to increase security at our diplomatic posts around the globe. While the United States rejects efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others, we must all unequivocally oppose the kind of senseless violence that took the lives of these public servants. [...]
I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.
This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his government’s full cooperation.
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.
In light of the events of today, the United States government is working with partner countries around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens worldwide.
