    What I've gathered so far from the left is that lying = talking points. Spinning = lies. So, if the WH lies about an event, spins it with talking points, and then lies about a cover up, it's all okay. I feel sorry for Nixon. He had no idea how it works.

    Look, all you have to do us show more than the WH was involved in talking points (which is common).

    I did with that bit about what the Libyans told the Brits and us......Got something to say for the 3 day advance warning they gave Team O?

    Now look......all you have to do is Prove how Team O wasn't lying about not knowing anything.

    Ben Rhodes was in the WH and so were the people he copied on his email.
    Even if someone else in the WH concocted concoct the bullshit story for him to circulate, he's still in the WH.

    No, it doesn't matter. For the same reason you folks say Hillary's signature on the papers denying extra security don't matter.

    That's because Nixon didn't know Alinsky or Soros but both Barack and Hillary learned at the masters' knee.

    Well it is hard for them to understand.....how Hillary and the Team just managed to hire Ansar al Sharia as Security for us while in Benghazi. Which here was the straight dope on Ansar al sharia.



    State Department: Ansar al Sharia an alias for AQAP

    The US State Department announced today that it has amended its terrorist designations of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) "to include the new alias, Ansar al Sharia (AAS)."

    AAS "was established to attract potential followers to sharia rule in areas under the control of AQAP," according to the State Department. "However, AAS is simply AQAP's effort to rebrand itself, with the aim of manipulating people to join AQAP's terrorist cause."

    Although the State Department's statement focuses solely on Ansar al Sharia in Yemen, other Ansar al Sharia-branded organizations have emerged elsewhere since the Arab Spring, including Tunisia and Libya.

    Ansar al Sharia Tunisia is headed by Seifallah ben Hassine, otherwise known as Abu Iyad al Tunisi. Hassine, a longtime al Qaeda ally, orchestrated the Sept. 14 assault on the US embassy in Tunis.

    In Libya, multiple groups calling themselves Ansar al Sharia have popped up recently. A militia named Ansar al Sharia has been reportedly implicated in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack on the US consulate in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

    The State Department says that Ansar al Sharia in Yemen is a "separate entity from Ansar al Sharia in Libya." According to a report published by the federal research division of the Library of Congress in August, one of these Ansar al Sharia groups "has increasingly embodied al Qaeda's presence in Libya, as indicated by its active social-media propaganda, extremist discourse, and hatred of the West, especially the United States."

    That report, titled "Al Qaeda in Libya: A Profile," was produced under an agreement with the Defense Department's Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO). The report's authors document al Qaeda's extensive presence in Libya, finding that al Qaeda's senior leadership in Pakistan has dispatched operatives to the North African country to establish a clandestine terrorist network there.

    The Defense Department's CTTSO concluded that al Qaeda is on the verge of a fully operational network inside Libya, and Ansar al Sharia is one of the brands employed by al Qaeda operatives.....snip~

    Part two.....

    Al Qaeda has used numerous brands throughout its history. In February 1998, several leading jihadist groups, including al Qaeda, announced the formation of a "World Islamic Front for Jihad against Jews and Crusaders."

    After the August 1998 embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania, a group calling itself the "Islamic Army for the Liberation of the Holy Places" claimed responsibility for the suicide attacks. That organization was really an alias for al Qaeda. The 9/11 Commission found that the Islamic Army's claim of responsibility "had already been faxed to the joint al Qaeda-Egyptian Islamic Jihad office in Baku," Azerbaijan prior to the bombings, with instructions to forward the statement to the press afterwards.

    Al Qaeda has used numerous brands for both its international operations and its local affiliates. For instance, as the State Department notes, al Qaeda in Iraq operates under the Islamic State of Iraq umbrella.

    The Ansar al Sharia brand is, therefore, one of the newest brands used by al Qaeda to market itself. Although the organization's affiliates continue to operate under the al Qaeda name, the al Qaeda brand has been tarnished in Middle Eastern and African countries because of the group's indiscriminate slaughter of Muslims. Al Qaeda's principal victims since its founding have been Muslims. In Iraq and elsewhere, al Qaeda's attacks alienated large numbers of Muslims.

    The Ansar al Sharia brand is al Qaeda's attempt to win back some of the hearts and minds it lost.....snip~
