Impeach Obama for Treason – Tancredo on Benghazi, Libya

 

BENGHAZI AMOUNTS TO GIVING ‘AID AND COMFORT’ TO THE ENEMY

 

The four American deaths in Benghazi are a direct result of decisions and actions by President Obama that undermine the national-security interests of the United States. Those deaths may well be only a foretaste of the catastrophe awaiting the United States if Barack Hussein Obama remains in office four more years.

As we all know, Obama may be removed by a vote of the people Nov. 6. But if not, if the lapdog media succeed in hiding his malfeasance and incompetence well enough for Obama to win a narrow victory at the polls, then Congress may summon the courage to exercise its constitutional duty to impeach and remove him.

Obama’s foreign-policy disasters have not been a major focus of the presidential race, and that is unfortunate. The grave national-security issues raised in the Benghazi fiasco cannot be easily or intelligently addressed in a 30-second television spot, but they are nonetheless critical to our future safety and well-being. Obama’s pro-Islamist policies are more than mere blips on the political radar screen.

In the view of many, Obama had earned impeachment even before the Benghazi tragedy of Sept. 11. His open abuse of power in making recess appointments when the Senate was not in recess, his open defiance of Congress in his administrative amnesty for 2 million illegal aliens, his misuse of “executive privilege” in withholding documents pertaining to the illegal Fast and Furious gunwalking scandal – those actions alone qualify as impeachable offenses under the Constitution.

However, if treason is added to the mix, Congress will find it hard to shirk its duty to impeach him. The many people who think those other offenses do not rise to the constitutional standard of “high crimes and misdemeanors” will not be so charitable with regard to the crime of treason.

But when does a foreign policy “blunder” cross the line into treason? Well, maybe when it is not a blunder at all but the entirely predictable consequence of a deliberate policy that invites attack on our embassies and indeed our homeland.

The word treason means a betraying, treachery, or breach of allegiance. Article III of the U.S. Constitution defines treason against the United States to consist only in levying war against them, or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid or comfort. If radical Islam is a self-declared enemy of the United States, as can be easily demonstrated, Obama has certainly given them aid and comfort: Most Americans will think that welcoming the Muslim Brotherhood into the White House and appointing Muslim Brotherhood members to important posts does in fact constitute “aid and comfort.”

If the Muslim Brotherhood is not an avowed enemy of the United States, what else should we call an organization that openly and officially calls for the replacement of the U.S. Constitution by Shariah law? Apparently, an Islamist armed to the teeth must carry an al-Qaida membership card to qualify for Obama’s distrust.

Here is the brute fact of the matter. The attack on the United States consulate in Benghazi was a terrorist act. Obama’s foreign policies and decisions not only left the consulate vulnerable to attack but in fact invited the attack – and then he blamed an unknown American film for the attack and turned a blind eye on the al-Qaida allied terrorists who were responsible.

Despite the establishment media’s best efforts to protect Obama from any fallout from the Benghazi deaths, we now know that Obama and his team lied about those events.

Obama lied when he said the attack on the consulate was a spontaneous act in response to an obscure film no one in Libya had yet seen. He knew differently. He lied when he said the Libyan embassy staff had not requested additional security for its Benghazi consulate. He lied in the weeks leading up to the Benghazi attack when he said al-Qaida had been “knocked back on its heels” and is no longer a threat to the United States.

Obama’s lies about the Benghazi attack and the four American deaths are lies told to cover up not State Department “incompetence” but the predictable consequences of policies of denial, neglect and stupidity toward our nation’s enemy, radical Islam.

But here is the most damning aspect Obama’s behavior. Obama is unwilling even today to name the enemy that has declared war on the United States and to deal forthrightly with that imminent threat. Our pro-Islamist president will not name Islamism, the Muslim Brotherhood and the government of Iran as enemies of the United States even though they have declared war on us and are engaged in numerous plots to bring death and destruction to the American homeland.

Why are we so reluctant to call this by its right name – treason?

The failure in Benghazi was more than a State Department failure to provide needed security for the embassy personnel in our Libyan outpost. That failure is bad enough, but it is only part of a larger betrayal. Additional security was denied to Benghazi consulate because doing so would have been an admission that eastern Libya was under the effective control of armed militias allied with al-Qaida. Making that admission would have undermined one of the pillars of Obama’s re-election.

When the attack was under way, military assistance that was only two hours away was denied. Today’s revelation by the CIA that it sent a four-person support team from the capital, Tripoli, does not answer the question of why military backup was denied and who denied it. Sending additional CIA support to the post was admirable but was too little and too late. Why was military support at AFRICOM – less than two hours distant – denied when it was available and ready to deploy? Did Secretary of Defense Panetta consult Obama in making that decision?

The many unanswered questions about Benghazi are unanswered for only one reason: Truthful answers would embarrass Obama and jeopardize his re-election. This is election fraud conducted not from Chicago but straight from the West Wing of the White House.

Thanks to a compliant media, the American people will not have those answers in time to make an informed choice on Tuesday. It will fall to the people’s representatives in Congress to find those answers. And when the full truth is known, Congress must consider removing Barack Obama for giving aid and comfort to America’s enemies – and that is treason against the United States.


Tom Tancredo has been a Representative to Congress of the State of Colorado and 2008 candidate for U.S. President. His CongressmanTomTancredo.com regularly features his articles, as does WorldNetDaily.

Congressman Tancredo currently serves as chairman of Rocky Mountain Foundation, co-chairman of the anti-illegal immigration Team America PAC, and honorary chairman of Youth for Western Civilization.

  1. I may be incorrect but I think it’s alittle late for impeachment in the event that obama is thrown out of office….that said, I would be in favor pursuing treason charges against him, valarie Jarret, hillary clinton, leon Pannetta, tom donilon, & Gen.Martin Dempsey after he leaves.

    • Treason? You stooges have clearly lost your minds. Just because you obviously hate people making informed, scientific decisions as opposed to the mindwashed christianity you all swallow…there must be something treasonous about this…well, how many americans died as a result of the failed nation building in iraq? I would love to have such a simplistic world view as the readers of this backwater site. it must all be so clear to you. i suggest you all sit down and pray for enlightenment. until that happens, attempt to adhere to just a few of your precious christian tenants.

  2. OBAMA GIFT-WRAPPED LIBYA TO AL-QAIDA!

  3. THIS HAS BEEN TREASON FROM DAY 1 & NOBODY HAS DONE 1 THING BUT TALK, SO IS CONGRESS GOING TO BRING HIM UP WITH TREASON ( THE WHOLE BUNCH SHOULD BE CHARGED, MICHELLE O, HILLARY, PELOSI, REID, THIS LIST IN LONG…..+ EVERYONE OF THOSE SO CALLED CZARS SHOULD BE CHARGED OF A CRIME AGAINST THE U.S.A. & HER PEOPLE? GOD BLESS THE U.S.A & GOD BLESS ALL.

  4. If I have been informed correctly Ambassador Stevens was gay. If this is correct why isn’t the Gay lobby screaming bloody murder over the “incident”? Does this expose the Gay lobby for what it truly is, a self centered, uncompassionate group of misogynists who actually only after tax payers money to further their depraved agenda? obama is the homosexual’s friend. From some reports our president has homosexual experiences himself. But why the silence? It just shows, in my opinion, what the human condition has become. It’s all about me and to hell with you!!!!! And this is what a good liberal rails against.

  5. So who gets this treason impeachment going?..I don’t ever see conservative lawyers offering they’re time to fight libdemcommunists..

    • CIRCA53: CONGRESS IS IN CHARGE OF THE TREASON DEPT. BUT DON’T COUNT ON THEM, I THINK ”THREATS HAVE BEEN THE KEY WORD” ON THEIR FAMLIES & WITH ALL HIS CZARS, THAT WE DON’T KNOW WHAT THEY DO MAYBE THERE THE ONE’S DOING THE WATCHING?
      THERE IS SO MUCH GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY ITS HARD TO KEEP UP.
      GOD BLESS THE U.S.A. (I CAN STILL SAY THAT FOR NOW)

    • Fox News McCain said that the American people has to speak out, we have to make our voices heard. I did sign a petition with the Tea Party on impeachment on Obama. It was sent to me on the web. so there is stuff circulating. Harry Reed said that he will not impeach Obama, he made that statement today. Americans need to be the voices for these 4 lifes that were killed. Those 4 men fought, and died knowing that Obama commander and chief left them to needless death, it makes me sick to my stomach
      Obama announced that the buck stops with him. He is correct, impeach!.

  6. Obama and his cronies must be impeached and/or removed from office and prosecuted post haste. The whole world is watching the current fiasco. Obama and most of his associates are guilty of dividing this nation, attacking and violating our Constitution and laws, all the while they have given comfort and aid to our enemies! They and he are traitorous criminals masquerading as the political saviors of the poor, the illegal aliens, and the confused. The current congress shares in the wrong and is just now waking up to the enormity of the situation that they have had a hand in. The run away spending, the dog and pony show about their lack of a responsible and balanced budget, the resulting deficit, the likelihood that they have destroyed our currency and its credibility and out credit rating as a nation. When the dollar is no longer the worlds reserve currency, they know that they will share in the blame and receive the repercussions from the public. Now is the time to stop this craziness and recover from this insider attack by rereading the first sentence here and taking that action and insuring the successful elimination of the socialist and foreign interest movement in the USA. The days of free stuff will likely end with…no more handouts at all. End of Entitlement. Thank Obama and George Soros.

  7. What is wrong with the politions dont they have grand kids and they will not have the rights we have and they will live like they do in the middle east what to hell are you thinking Icould say more but no one listen to a tax payer just illegal’s to get a free vote.
