Kurzbeschreibung

The events that took place in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, were an American tragedy that ended in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens, Information Officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods.

No one could have imagined at the start of that evening how quickly the Republican right would politicize the murder of four Americans. Or how the most basic facts would be twisted, confused, and even invented out of thin air to manufacture false charges – first to suggest that President Obama, then seeking re-election, was disengaged, feckless, or even sympathetic to terror, and then, when that faltered, to tarnish the reputation of Hillary Clinton as she mulled a 2016 presidential bid.

What has been called the “Benghazi scandal” by Republican investigators, the Fox News Channel, and right-wing radio talkers like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity is better described as the Benghazi hoax.

What should have been an investigation into the protection of U.S. diplomatic posts and our policy in Libya has been hijacked by unfounded and sometimes wild conspiracy theories, many of them centered on Hillary Clinton and her top aides in the State Department, that have not only wasted considerable time and money but distracted attention from real issues that affect American voters.

The Benghazi Hoax tells 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.


“This book is a must read for anyone interested in how the attack on Benghazi has been hijacked by unfounded and wild conspiracy theories and has therefore remained at the forefront of political conversation for over a year”

-Dr. Larry Korb, Senior Fellow, Center for American Progress


“Mr. Brock and Mr. Rabin-Havt do a great service to Ambassador Stevens and his team, the 4th estate and the brave men and women serving our country in and out of uniform by his thorough analysis of the Benghazi tragedy and its treatment by conservative American media. By dissecting the conservative press reaction to the Benghazi attack through his vehicle of the fifteen conservative movement perpetuated hoaxes, the authors at once validate the results of the Accountability Review Board and defend the reputations of the men and women involved in the events that lead to the deaths of four great Americans.”

- Major General Paul Eaton (US Army, ret)


"Benghazi was not a hoax but a tragedy that has recurred too frequently under all presidents. Benghazi has been much more politicized, however, as this book describes in fascinating detail. Of course, only Ambassador Chris Stevens could tell us the real truth. Meanwhile his and his colleagues' untimely death is being exploited by partisans for political gain. If this is the way America handles foreign policy in the future, U.S. politics won't stop at the water's edge but will start boiling the oceans."

- Rep Jim Cooper (TN-5)

1.0 von 5 Sternen Misinformed 5. September 2014
Von C. S. MCBRIDE - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Suggest you all read the upcoming book '13 Hours' written by three CIA agents who were there…and maybe -- if you're brave enough -- watch the interview with them. You might actually learn something.

1.0 von 5 Sternen The heroes who died deserve better, they deserve that the truth be known 1. September 2014
Von Kotton Kandee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The only HOAX here is the one being played on any reader who believes this ongoing whitewash. The heroes who died deserve better, they deserve that the truth be known. You won't find it here. And one of the main reasons is - it has yet to be told. And it hasn't been told because those who were there and know and lived thru it fear reprisals (with good reason) if they talk. They were made to sign statements promising their silence. A shameful page in American History that just keeps going.

The Benghazi Hoax by David Brock, Ari Rabin-Havt, Media Matters for America

"The Benghazi Hoax" is an excellent expose of the underhanded tactics used by Republicans fishing for a scandal that didn't exist. It tells a comprehensive story to the best of the information and analysis available of the tragedy that occurred on September 11, 2011 at Benghazi, Libya. Author and executive of Media Matters for America, David Brock provides the readers with an excellent reference of the timeline of events. This insightful 122-page book includes the following fifteen chapters (hoaxes): 1. Mitt Romney's Statement Hoax, 2. Terrorism or an Act of Terror Hoax, 3. The Attack on Susan Rice Hoax, 4. The Talking Points Hoax, 5. The Republican Investigations Hoax, 6. The Fake Concussion Hoax, 7. Hillary Clinton Faked Her Emotion Hoax, 8. A Disengaged Administration Hoax, 9. Military Options Hoax, 10. The "Critical Cables" Hoax, 11. Attacks On The Accountability Review Board Hoax, 12. Muzzled Hoax, 13. Left Behind Hoax, 14. The Stand Down Order Hoax, and 15. Jonathan Karl's Scoop Conclusion: "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi".

Positives:
1. A well-written succinct expose. Excellent citations that bolster the authors' main conclusions.
2. A fascinating study of deception and underhanded politics.
3. Excellent format. Each chapter covers a hoax and the author proceeds to debunk with linked citations.
4. Straightforward prose. There is something to be said about not mincing words. "In fact, what has been called "the Benghazi scandal" by a chorus of voices including Fox News, right-wing radio talkers like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity, and sympathetic websites like the Drudge Report, is better described as the Benghazi hoax."
5. It's fascinating how an attack can mushroom into a conspiratorial hoax. Throughout this telling book the authors make it clear how this became so and the players behind it.
6. The themes behind the hoax. "In this case, the subliminal themes of the Benghazi hoax - that Obama somehow lacked American values and was prone to sympathizing with terrorists - had been an underpinning of right-wing discourse for more than three years."
7. Find out how Susan Rice got railroaded.
8. Revealing facts. "They provided proof that the intelligence community, not the White House, had been the first to link the attacks with the video, debunking conservative claims that the connection had been dreamed up by the administration for political reasons."
9. The politicians behind the hoax. "Leading the charge were two House Republicans, Darrell Issa of California, the chairman of the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Jason Chaffetz, a Tea Party member from Utah and the chairman of that committee's Subcommittee on National Security. From these perches, they would lead both the investigations of Benghazi and efforts to spin the scandal in the press."
10. The story behind Hillary's "fake" concussion. How the Republicans tried to pin the narrative on her.
11. Amusing gaffs exposed. "On-screen text during the segment asked, "Where Was Donilon On Night Of Benghazi?" Above the text, Fox News was showing a picture of Donilon meeting with the president in the Oval Office on the night of Benghazi."
12. Find out the reason why more fire-power wasn't deployed.
13. The two theories that resulted from the Republican noise machine. "The Republican noise machine's buy-in to the Benghazi hoax has been dramatized by two related theories: that Obama and Clinton had somehow "left behind" the Americans who were under attack in Libya and, even worse, that a rescue mission was in the works and the administration had ordered it to `stand down.'"
14. Clear conclusions.
15. Links to notes.
16. At 99 cents this qualifies as a great Kindle value.

Negatives:
1. A timeline chart or any other visual aid would have complemented nicely the interesting narrative.
2. An appendix including a bio of each person lost in the tragedy would have been welcomed.
3. The authors didn't elaborate on how previous incidents were handled and if it differed significantly from Benghazi. "Benghazi was just one of at least 157 attacks on our diplomatic facilities over a 15-year period, 9 of which resulted in U.S. fatalities."
4. Curious on the impact the whole tragedy had on the approval rating of the President. A chart with such depiction would have added value.

In summary, this is an excellent reference on the Benghazi tragedy. The authors do a commendable job of describing the tragic events of Benghazi backed by copious citations. This shameful fishing act on the part of the Republicans says a lot about how it has lost its ways and to what extent it will go to deceive the public for political gain. An interesting read, I recommend it.
