Beck’s Take on the Benghazi Attack

September 22, 2012

It’s been fascinating to watch the Obama Administration hang itself on all the inconsistencies relating to the 9/11 terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi.  Some believe that all the confusion paints a picture of an administration in disarray, which may give some indeterminate political advantage to Romney in this election game of inches. Yet, [...]

Libya Intervention is Wrong — but Let’s Fund It Anyway!

June 24, 2011

Earlier today, the House voted 295-123 to refuse President Obama Congressional authorization for our intervention in Libya, but shortly thereafter voted 238-180 (with 89 Republicans) to keep funding it!  In an embarrassing move, seventy Democrats voted against authorization — even President Bush secured authorization for both Afghanistan and Iraq. Here’s my problem.  I understand that [...]

February 21, 2011

The chaos enveloping the Middle East is approaching the breaking point in Libya.  Libyan dictator and retro-fashionista Muamar Qaddafi (or Gadhafi or Gaddafi), their leader since a 1969 coup overthrew a monarch, may have fled the country and is possibly en route to Venezuela, leaving his son behind who promises to fight “until the last [...]
