28 October 2013: Just two weeks ago on October 16, 2013, a 103-page e-book book titled The Benghazi Hoax was published. Written by authors David Brock, founder of Media Matters for America, and Ari Rabin Havt, a senior fellow at Media Matters, the book promised provide, “in intimate detail the story of the deception created by those who fill airtime with savage punditry and pseudo-journalism and how the Republicans in charge of the investigative committees were empowered but ultimately failed to find a scandal – any kind of scandal – to tar a Democratic White House.”


Having been at the forefront of reporting the factual events leading up to the attack on the CIA compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, the attack itself and its murky aftermath, I felt professionally compelled to download, read and evaluate the facts claimed to be in this book. I was anxious to learn how, as an investigator and a journalist, I fell victim to “unfounded and wild conspiracy theories” about Benghazi.

Instead, I found it to be an odious missive that is completely devoid of facts or substance related to the events that took place at Benghazi. If the authors’ objectives were to showcase their skills at using the cut and paste function of a computer to arm the most intellectually obtuse with well-worn talking points to divert from the facts, then they’ve succeeded. Otherwise, their self-absorbed petulance and glaring, pompous obsession with politically motivated assaults against anyone questioning the official narrative surrounding the deaths of four Americans will leave the truth-seekers wanting.

Even at 99 cents, I contend that this book is overpriced and an unnecessary inconvenience of the electrons involved in its download. It is masterful only in its failings to address the real issues behind the murder of four Americans, yet somehow succeeding in including a few disjointed and completely irrelevant references to Barack Hussein Obama’s race and Constitutional eligibility to hold office.

I believe that it is unlikely that Messrs Brock and Havt could overcome their arrogant aversion to facts pertaining to all matters related to Benghazi. On the off chance that it were possible, however, perhaps they could address pertinent facts and answer a few relevant questions about the events of, leading up to, and following the Benghazi attack.

We might begin by asking about the purpose of the CIA compound located in Benghazi, in addition to other warehouses in Eastern Libya that were used as logistic centers and staging areas for the tons of weapons and arms shipments destined to al Qaeda related terrorists in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon to be used by CIA backed anti-Assad ‘rebels.’ Curiously, the two purveyors of political pettiness are completely silent on this issue, despite it being at the very core of the Obama-initiated toppling of Qaddafi and invasion of Libya.

It would also be most enlightening to learn the exact location and precise activities of Barack Hussein Obama during the murky 18 1/2 hours from September 11-12, 2012. The U.S. Secret Service maintains impeccable logs of a President’s location at all times, including who is with him and where he is in the White House at any given time. Interestingly, this question is of critical importance yet has never been answered in any significant detail.

While Brock and Havt devote an entire two paragraphs to the issue of a “seven-man security team in Tripoli [that] launched its rescue operation within minutes of the initial reports of an attack and chartered an aircraft as soon as possible in the dead of the Libyan night,” they fail to address the circumstances surrounding this rescue effort. They fail to explain that this team acted in the absence of orders from Obama or anyone else, and that the leading member of this unofficial rescue effort had to use his own money, and any money that could be scraped up to ‘bribe’ the pilot to fly to Benghazi. According to at least intelligence source close to me, the amount was somewhere around $30,000 (U.S.). Was this money ever repaid to his estate or to his family?

A bit more space is devoted to the findings of the Accountability Review Board (ARB), yet there is no mention of why Thomas Pickering was an obvious choice to direct an investigation that could have any negative implications to this administration’s associations with the Muslim Brotherhood. Pickering is an advisory board member of the pro-Iranian organization known as the National Iranian American Council (NIAC), and co-chairman of the board of directors of the International Crisis Group (ICG), whose executive committee includes the infamous George Soros, who, coincidentally of course, donated one million dollars to Media Matters. Pickering is also vice-chairman of Hills & Co., global consultants founded in 1993 by CFR and Trilateral Commission member Carla Anderson Hills.

The significance of Pickering’s appointment cannot be overstated or underestimated considering that the trail of blood from four Americans leads directly to Ansar al Sharia, a terrorist group funded by Iran. Who better to redirect or cover up the operational conspiracy that exists between Barack Hussein Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton and that Muslim Brotherhood that exists at the core of the 9/11 attack? Pickering is the obvious choice.

There are many more questions that I have identified in my nearly three dozen published articles detailing the events that took place in Benghazi before, during and after the September 11, 2012 attack. Of course, none were addressed in The Benghazi Hoax, as the authors preferred to make the entire tome about partisan politics. This is not only an insult to thinking Americans, it is shamefully exploiting the dead.

I suspect that by now, you have sensed my overwhelming distaste for this embarrassing excuse of literary tripe written by two sock puppets for the Progressive-Marxist regime. It is nothing more than a modern-day version of an edition of Cliff Notes, designed to be used for the unforgivable obfuscation of the facts related to one of the greatest criminal operations of our time. A criminal operation that not only caused, either directly or indirectly, the deaths of about 150,000 Syrian men, women and children, but the murder of four Americans. And it’s not over yet.

Thinking back to the young Syrian girl chained to a fence and forced to watch her parents tortured and dismembered by Obama-backed anti-Assad rebels, only to be tortured and murdered later, I found it impossible to read without feeling like I needed to shower afterward.

David Brock and Ari Rabin Havt - have you no shame?
