The Benghazi Brief – A Power Point Presentation….
The Conservative Treehouse
The “Benghazi Brief” remains the most controversial research report we have ever produced. The brief contains over two years of research and hundreds of very specific citations supporting it.
The Brief has also been challenged and with extensive vetting factually withstood all scrutiny. The report, while exhaustive in detail, remains the strongest summary of events surrounding the two years leading up to the Benghazi Libya attack on 9/11/12.
We have repeatedly stated The Benghazi Brief, and ALL of the cited information contained therein, is available for use by anyone who has a goal of communicating the truth surrounding the controversial events.
We presented the brief so that a larger understanding, a factual understanding, is possible. It can be used in part or in whole, or edited for use by any party. Anyone can do whatever they want with the detailed information provided. Our only request continues to be that the truth contained within it be maintained.
With that, a group of people committed to sharing the actual truth, and answering some of the more ridiculous conspiracy claims, have put the brief into a Power Point presentation so that it can be communicated to an audience during a speech or delivery.
The brief itself is available below in it’s entirety.
We know from the Bret Baier interview with Hillary Clinton that she was physically located at her 7th floor office in Washington DC on the night of the attack. Unfortunately we also know during the November 2012 Thanksgiving holiday a mysterious fire took place in that building. Well, actually directly above her exact office - cause undetermined.
A “fire” which preceded an unfortunate slip and fall for the Secretary, resulting in a concussion, which led to the discovery of a blood clot, that ultimately delayed her congressional testimony before a Senate Hearing into the events of the night in question.
We know the Libyan uprising began on February 10th of 2011, and we also know that sometime around the end of February 2011 President Obama signed a presidential directive authorizing the State Dept and CIA to begin a covert operation to arm the Libyan “rebels”.
We also know of a Second Presidential Finding Memo authorizing additional CIA covert action in 2012, this time in Syria. However, unlike the 2011 Libyan operation we do not know the operational name of the second action in 2012 Syria.
We know the Libyan “rebels” were positioned in two strategic places. Benghazi, and the port city of Darnah, both located in Northeastern Libya.
We know this 2011 Libyan covert operation came to be known as “Operation Zero Footprint“, and fell under the military command authority of NATO not (important to repeat), NOT, the U.S. Military.
We know by the time operation “Zero Footprint” began, AFRICOM commander General Carter Ham was removed from OPSEC oversight in the Libyan campaign and NATO commander Admiral James G. Stavridis was in charge.

Posing for the Cameras While the Islamic Threat Grows
By: Cliff Kincaid
Accuracy in Media
Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, says the danger is great that the thousands of Syrian refugees coming into the United States will include terrorists who want to kill Americans. So what is he doing about it? He told Sean Hannity of Fox News the other night that he has sent a letter!
He said, “I sent a letter to National Security Advisor Susan Rice asking her to explain why she’s doing this, and to try to stop this from happening. My job as chairman of Homeland Security is to protect the American people. I believe this will put Americans at risk.”
“Keep up the good work,” said Hannity.
It’s true. McCaul sent a letter to Obama National Security Advisor Susan Rice. But what is she going to do about it? Rice was part of the Benghazi cover-up.
This is the same Congressman McCaul who didn’t even respond to our letter two years ago asking for an investigation of Al Jazeera’s expansion into the United States.
A letter is not a substitute for a bill to stop this dangerous wave of immigration into the United States. But this is what passes for “action” from the Republican running the House Committee on Homeland Security.
McCaul is very good at posing for the cameras and going on Fox News to talk about his hearings. But his record of doing anything to actually stop the Islamic threat is weak.
McCaul did introduce a bill, the “Secure Our Border First Act of 2015,” supposedly designed to curb illegal immigration. But Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), perhaps the top opponent of amnesty for illegal aliens in the U.S. Congress, said that McCaul’s border bill does not include the following reforms needed to achieve a sound immigration system:
- It does not end catch-and-release.
- It does not require mandatory detention and return.
- It does not include worksite enforcement.
- It does not close dangerous asylum and national security loopholes.
- It does not cut off access to federal welfare.
- It does not require completion of the border fence.
- It delays and weakens the longstanding, unfulfilled statutory requirement for a biometric entry-exit visa tracking system.
We are now learning why McCaul is so reticent about doing anything of substance against the Islamic threat.
McCaul was recently exposed by Matthew Boyle of Breitbart News for having held a friendly meeting with an Islamic leader from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) in Texas. McCaul and CAIR Houston branch executive director Mustafa Carroll were photographed together. A photograph of the meeting includes a note written in silver sharpie from McCaul to Carroll: “To Mustafa and the Council on American Islamic Relations, the moderate Muslim is our most effective weapon.”
The February 11 hearing held by McCaul, “Countering Violent Islamist Extremism: The Urgent Threat of Foreign Fighters and Homegrown Terror,” was certainly worthwhile.
But the idea that a letter to Rice is somehow sufficient to deal with the threat is laughable.
Rice is one of the top Obama officials implicated in the Benghazi terror attack cover-up. And she is now supposed to do something to stop terrorists from coming into the U.S. disguised as refugees because McCaul has sent her a letter?
McCaul himself signed a letter to Obama, noting that Rice “propagated a falsehood that the [Benghazi] attacks were ‘spontaneous,’ the outcome of a protest ‘spun out of control,’ and the result of a YouTube video.”
The letter, signed by McCaul and others, said Rice “is widely viewed as having either willfully or incompetently misled the American public in the Benghazi matter. Her actions plausibly give U.S. allies (and rivals) abroad reason to question U.S. commitment and credibility when needed.”
The letter was designed to warn Obama against making Rice Secretary of State. Instead, he made her National Security Advisor.
The letter that was sent to McCaul two years ago, warning of Al Jazeera’s expansion into the U.S., cited Dr. Judea Pearl’s criticism of Al Jazeera as “the main propaganda machine” of the pro-terrorist Muslim Brotherhood. Equally significant, Dr. Pearl, the father of slain journalist Daniel Pearl, said that “Al Jazeera weaves the ideological structure and combustible angers from which Jihadi recruits eventually emerge.”
McCaul now claims to be concerned about the emergence of Islamic terrorists on American soil. Yet he refused to even respond to the letter about Al Jazeera.
Accuracy in Media learned and reported that Al Jazeera and its financial sponsor, the government of Qatar, had hired various K Street lobbyists to put pressure on McCaul and other Republicans to stop a probe into Al Jazeera’s operations on American soil.
Yet, former Attorney General Michael Mukasey has said, in regard to Al Jazeera, “I think if an American medium is controlled by a political force from abroad, that’s a proper subject for inquiry.”
McCaul is emerging as very good at getting “face time” on the news to sound tough about the Islamic threat. But when the threat is mounting, sending letters just doesn’t seem to cut it.
A tougher border bill that would help keep radical Islamic terrorists out of the United States seems like an absolute necessity. But McCaul and the Republican-controlled Congress aren’t even pushing for that.
“My job as chairman of Homeland Security is to protect the American people,” he says. So why won’t he do his job?
A letter to Susan Rice won’t protect us. A tougher border bill would help. And so would hearings into Al Jazeera leading to the eviction of this Muslim Brotherhood channel from the United States.
Our Weasel Of The Week!! – 02/26/15
The Watchers Council
It’s time to present this week’s statuette of shame, The Golden Weasel!!
Every Tuesday, the Council nominates some of the slimiest, most despicable characters in public life for some deed of evil, cowardice or corruption they’ve performed. Then we vote to single out one particular Weasel for special mention, to whom we award the statuette of shame, our special, 100% plastic Golden Weasel. This week’s nominees were all truly slime-worthy and disgusting, but in the end the overwhelming winner was… the envelope please…
State Department Spokeshole, Jihadi Employment Specialist and Chikken Fried Crap Thrower Marie Harsh!
The Independent Sentinel: For me, Marie Harf has a slight edge over Eric Holder who doesn’t know why we have to call radical Islam by its name. She thinks the solution to ISIS is jobs!
During an interview with Chris Matthews on MSNBC, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said: “We can’t kill our way out of this war…whether it’s more opportunities for jobs..what makes these 17-year old kids pick up an AK-47 instead of trying to start a business.”
We’re still killing them but they need job opportunities, she assured Chris Matthews.
Since they don’t know what this “kind of ideology this is” in the White House, this solution isn’t unexpected.
Maybe we can open up an ISIS employment agency at the White House or we could give ISIS jobs as border agents.
Yes, it’s Marie Harf who took the honors this week. Straight outta college and into the Obama Campaign, she’s been a particularly loyal soldat, she has, and last week’s set to prove it.
There she was, saying that we couldn’t kill our way to victory, that all IS needs are job opportunities and that all the Islamist terrorist outfits in the world are somehow absolved by Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Army in Uganda, a supposed ‘Christian’ terrorist outfit. Why, she even wrote her college thesis on the awful way all those whack job Right Wingers and Evangelicals support Israel and how bad it is for U.S. foreign policy.
In other words, mirroring exactly what Barack Hussein Obama believes.
“Hey, I’ve got a Masters, I wear glasses and I’m smarter than all of you dammit! That’s why I’m Deputy State Department deputy spokeswoman!”
Ah, but all that being down for the struggle just wasn’t enough.
When her supervisor, State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki moves to the White House (appropriately on April Fool’s Day) to serve as the next White House Communications Director, you’d think Marie Harf would get her reward for all that sucking up (or whatever direction it was) and get promoted to Psaki’s old job. Alas, it appears not. Sigh. It’s one thing to lie and dissemble as part of your daily duties, but to not even get a proper reward for it? How dare President Obama deny us all that material! I’m proud to present this Weasel to Ms. Harf and I certainly hope it starts the ball rolling towards her well earned promotion.
No more war on women!
Well, there it is!
Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
