DAMNING: The Complete Benghazi Timeline Spreadsheet [Updated]

The complete Benghazi timeline, now augmented with information from eyewitness testimony before Congress, various leaks from the warring Obama/Clinton camps, Stephen Hayes, Sharyl Attkisson, and the House Oversight Committee [PDF], leads me to four inescapable conclusions.

It is now clear to me that:

a) Hillary Clinton lied to Congress.
b) Barack Obama went to sleep knowing that a U.S. Ambassador and other Americans were under terrorist attack.
c) Barack Obama awoke refreshed the next day to begin fundraising.
d) The entire Executive Branch lied repeatedly to the American people to save Obama's chances for reelection.

Could someone drag John Boehner out of whatever bar he's in, wake him up, and get him to name a Select Committee on Benghazi?

The problem with Boehner is that he is the same gutless, lying politician as those in the admin.

It sucks when you have to rely on one gutless bastard to go after other gutless bastards. I know drug dealers with more integrity.

Darrell Davis said...

Cover-ups are the norm whether Democrat or Republican. I think it is a mistake to act like these are two different political parties. They are not. They both serve big money elites.

Jefferson Ohio said...

Clinton will retire as she is now known, with testimony, as a liar. Like her husband. Pathetic.

Something is being covered up.

The campaign season will be a tough time for the Democrats. said...

We tolerate Boehner's hogging of the Speaker position at our own peril.

Our continued collectively tolerating him there means we have nothing to complain about. Not a thing.

We can only wonder if Boehner betrays us by preventing now-disgraced former Obama IRS Commissioner Douglas Schulman will be indicted for lying to Congress.

Great summary. You could add on 9/11/12, 7:26 PM - President Barack Obama talks with Vice President Joe Biden, Chief of Staff Jack Lew, National Security Advisor Tom Donilon, and Deputy National Security Advisor Denis McDonough regarding the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in the Oval Office, Sept. 11, 2012.

You might add this quote from Obama about the Benghazi attacks and the Mohamad video creator:

"The future does not belong to those who insult Islam." Barack Obama

Could you add the day Mr. Nakoula, the film maker was arrested and put in jail? With all of the testimony that has gone on proving that the film was not the cause, one would think that the trumped up charges would have been dropped by now and released from prison.

I would also add that Obama on that fateful day concocted or used as decoy a telephone conversation with Netanyahu in Israel as per white house info.

It would be interesting to show the logs/e-mails from Holder etc to Nakoula's attorney requesting arrest and reason or deal they made to keep him quiet.
Did you know that he is a small town at the Mexican border hidden away in some nefarious little prison? He is not in California!

I'll actually be surprised if Boehner does anything.

The American people aren't the only ones, who should be holding Obama and Clinton liable. Refusing to help, allowing those men to be murdered and then lying about it is more than enough to find them guilty of quite a few things.

But, Obama and Hillary caused a lot of collateral damage through their actions or lack of action.

This movie was only known to a handful of people, until Obama started blaming it for Benghazi.

At least 2 fatwas were put out by islamic clerics calling for the murder of all those involved, in making the movie, including the actors. They now live their lives in fear.

Over 20 countries had violent protests, due to this movie. Theatres were burnt down, and people were hurt and killed, including police and other innocent people.

How much money did these countries waste to control the protests and riots that Obama caused?

This film was so bad,it most likely would have never seen the light of day until Obama shined the spotlight on it.

So, the way I look at it, He and Hillary are to blame for much more than the murders of those 4 men and should be held accountable by the entire world.

Well, there is no evidence anyone lied, but there is plenty of evidence serious mistakes were made.

I must ask, what was your position on the previous administrations lies, missteps and mistakes that led up to 9/11? Or the Iraq war that killed a total of 9,000 Americans and maimed nearly 50,000 more?

I ask because it is obvious that this issue with Benghazi has been politicized and probably by the Obama administration early on but without question by Republicans now. The lack of parity is not lost on me.

So why is the third DOS e-mail out of sequence in your spreadsheet? 18:06 Washington time would be 00:06 Libya time, while the flight from Tripoli to Benghazi was in the air. That e-mail, titled “Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack”, states “Embassy Tripoli reports the group claimed responsibility on Facebook and Twitter and has called for an attack on Embassy Tripoli.” So between attack number one, and attack number two, Mr. Hicks was telling the world that the Embassy in Tripoli, where he was standing, was the next target.

A second drone was supposed to have been dispatched 4:15 hours after the first.

Jim R. -

Aside from the Bush Tourette's Syndrone you're suffering, some facts:

* About 4,500 heroes have perished fighting in the Iraq War.

* That was the war authorized and supported TWICE by huge bi-partisan majorities in Congress.

* It was only after our troops were in Iraq that the Democrat Party decided to politicize the effort and undermine our troops, calling them murderers, terrorists, Nazis, and worse.

* Hussein's WMDs, as we now know, ended up in Syria and are gassing his people even now.

* Hussein was a virtual clearinghouse of terror and it needed to be disinfected. See Regime of Terror for some copious references on the threats Iraq represented.

Now, go educate yourself.

Doug - great timeline. Just to add, if you go back to Hick's testimony, there are three important points that are missing from your timeline. During the 2 a.m. phone call, Hillary told Hicks that there would be no military help sent. This is important for a host of reasons. One, it means Hillary was in the loop that night. Two, it means a decision had been made, to which she was privy, that hours before the last bullet was fired, the people in Benghazi were on their own. Three, if you will recall, Gen. Dempsey later testified that the State Dept. never requested any help from the military that night. Something stinks there.

The second thing missing is the decision of Hillary to make the Benghazi post permanent. I can't remember if Hicks ever identified the date she issued that order. It is critical in light of the continued refusals to provide more security. Note that the ARB completely ignored this, justifying the decision not to provide more security on the grounds that Benghazi was a "temporary" post with an "uncertain future."

Related thereto, you might want to put in your timeline about the decision to "normalize" our security posture in Libya as a justification for refusing more security. That is a policy that the ARB ignored and that had to come from the upper echelons of the State Dept, if not Clinton and Obama. Security professionals would provide security commensurate to the threat. The only reason they would do anything else is if they were be forced by their bosses to do otherwise.

Hillary and Obama are the reigning Queen and King of Abortion - their estimation of the value of human life is distorted and diminished.

They have become dehumanized by their ideology. Therefore, their response to the plight of Americans under attack is distorted, detached from reality, abnormal.

Their first response is and will always be to protect their political interests, not human life.

PianoLessons said...

Do you think you should include Obama's 9/11/12 phone call with Netenyahu in the timeline?

PianoLessons said...

Altho this isn't an official site - they say Hillary Clinton met at White House with Leon Paentta and Tom Donilon at noon on September 11, 2012.

PianoLessons said...

Maybe consider adding the State Department's planted staged protest in Benghazi a few days after September 11, 2012 (don't have date but Libyans don't use the word "thugs" as Clinton mentions here in speech praising the Arab Spring:

Art R said...

What it comes down to is that this administration should be charged with complicity in the murders of the 4 people in Benghazi. They complicit in a crime if they are "aware of its occurrence and have the ability to report the crime, but fails to do so. As such, the they effectively allows criminals to carry out a crime despite possibly being able to stop them, either directly or by contacting the authorities, thus making them a de facto accessory to the crime rather than an innocent bystander."

By looking at the timeline, they turned down a request for additional security on 7/9, turned down a request from Amb. Stevens for personnal bodyguard on 8/2, ignored (by Hillary) an email warning of the situation on 8/16, ignored a warning of impending attacks on 9/8, ignored the call for retribution in the death of Abu Yahya al-Libi on 9/10, ignored the email stating that it was a terrorist attack on 9/11, and ignored the requests for backup on 9/11. Then, they spent days denying that it was a terrorist attack EVEN THOUGH THEY WERE TOLD IT WAS WHEN THE ATTACKS OCCURRED.

They are complicit in the murders of these people and should each receive 25 years in prison!

They should also be charged with Conspiratorial Liability because they fit ALL FOUR items necessary to quality it:

1. Two or more persons come to a mutual understanding to try to accomplish a common and unlawful plan

2. The defendant willfully becomes a member of the conspiracy

3. During the conspiracy at least one of the conspirators commit an overt act in furtherance of the conspiracy

4. The overt act is knowingly committed in an effort to further the purpose of the conspiracy

It's a shame. You could have really serve an important purpose with this blog, but, instead, chose to use the filter of tea pot crackery to lie to your people. Real shame.

directorblue said...

@anonymous 9:35,

so a copiously documented and factual timeline is wingnuttery? open your eyes and embrace the Constitution, my friend. read it now. read the bill of rights, especially.

I'm so sick of you douche's who say there's not difference between parties! Sure, I can't stand the current center leaning GOP, but they never would have pushed Obamacare on us or Cap and Trade, nor Gun Control, nor the Abortion Pill. Get your head out, there are differences! What should happen is the Tea Party take over the GOP, it's the only reason for the tidal wave in 2010.

Why is it the liberals like to re-direct. you bring up Bengahzi, they re-direct to Bush. Is Bush still in office? And I think they like to forget that Bush warned Saddam that he had to let the inspectors inspect or there would be an invasion of Iraq. That Saddam had a HISTORY of useing WMD's on his OWN people.
And as for Bush. The Leftwing Media Machine was all over Bush from day one. all day every day. so they need to stop thier crying that Republicans are picking on Obama. I guess because hes a liberal we should all just give him a pass.

itstartedwithawindmill said...

You left out the dreaded "STAND DOWN ORDER" that was referenced at the congressional hearings. Two US military personnel were told they could not ride on a LIBYAN C-130 from Tripoli to the Benghazi airport to evacuate the 31 survivors and the 3 bodies. That was the only order given to available military personnel during the entire event. BUT IT HAPPENED AFTER THE ENTIRE EVENT, other than the evacuation from the airport. Put that in your timeline, Sparky.

Anonymous said...

I agree that redirect is typical when a person is caught facing the truth. I can hear my 10 year old students, "well Sam did it so...." so what? Wrong is wrong. As for the deal here, I hate politicians (all) because they lie and I have always held that they all should be held accountable. But one thing I know, Bush, Reagan, or even Jimmy Carter would not have gone to bed and slept while Americans were fighting for their lives. Disgusting! Cover-ups, lies - comes with politics. But I cannot believe how anti-American Obama is to sleep while Navy Seals are dying to protect our embassy!

Why not include
GRS, the six men icluding Tyrone Woods who was already in country.
Dogherty came from Tripoli to Benghazi and then was delayed.

What about the GRS team. Woods was team leader to the five in country.
Dougherty arrived at airport with little support and then was delayed for hours.
