Facebook Censors Navy SEALs to Protect Obama on Benghazi-Gate

October 31, 2012

Over the weekend, Facebook took down a message by the Special Operations Speaks PAC (SOS) which highlighted the fact that Obama denied backup to the forces being overrun in Benghazi.

The message was contained in a meme which demonstrated how Obama had relied on the SEALS when he was ready to let them get Osama bin Laden, and how he had turned around and denied them when they called for backup on Sept 11.

I spoke with Larry Ward, president of Political Media, Inc — the media company that handles SOS postings and media production. Ward was the one who personally put the Navy SEAL meme up, and the one who received the warning from Facebook and an eventual 24 hour suspension from Facebook  because Ward put the meme back up after Facebook told him to take it down.

Here’s what Ward told me:

We created and posted this meme on Saturday after news broke that Obama had known and denied SEALS the backup they requested.

Once the meme was up it garnered 30,000 shares, approx. 24,000 likes, and was read by hundreds of thousands of people — all within 24 hrs. On Sunday, I went into the SOS Facebook page to post something else and found a warning from Facebook that we had violated Facebook’s Statement of Rights and Responsibilities with our meme. So I copied the warning, put it on the meme as as caption, and re-posted the meme to the Facebook page.

Along with the re-posted meme, Ward put a link to the Facebook “feedback comment” inbox so visitors to the SOS page could send a message to Facebook if they were as outraged over the meme being jerked down as he was.

And now… the rest of the story. …..

    Harold: I make no accusation on Benghazi because it was obvious to me someone at State issued instruction to hold because something had to be investigated. Most likely in such case, it most be a person or office or Foreign manipulation of sufficient importance the facts would shake up something. Too many important leads were being ignored that, while small could give a start to a source. Such as the name, location and political orientation of the donors for the film which appear to be three or four Jewish millionaires from (Texas?)
    The next question is the careful selection of the Ambassador who had been involved in the revolution and friends of the people protesting. This narrows it down to people who were against the revolution and aimed to keep fighting and cause turmoil. Easy to figure out who those are, from the Tribes of the Desert to the relatives of Gaddafi all wanting to regain power. Nothing strange about this it is traditional in any revolution or war. The fighting may officially end but, as in our own USA stubborn difference keep on resisting and fighting, as the Founders Warned us.

    Most significant and upsetting is the situation in the USA itself where supposed citizens and old differences are manifesting themselves in a way damaging to the entire nation and our electoral process. How far have they come, and I mean extremist from both parties and certain people with special interest are willing to go to embarrass this nation showing a much more weakness of this nation that the military might they complain of being cut.
    Criticism is our privilege, bad government can be criticized but not the character of this nation. If I were planning to ruin this nation I would first go for the economy ,as they did, downsizing our money value, by people who hardly care about the Nation,many not even American. CAN’T YOU SMEEL the stench of evil intent toward this nation and what it stands for in terms of citizens loyalty and intent? Is now money, no matter how made, the only value on which this nation stands? I am not taking sides politically but this is an example that did not escape me when Romney said “this nation must be strong to protect our interest and make other nations available for entrepreneurs to invest” Are billions stored abroad derived from American and foreign business the interest our troops must defend? One,could argue the point but here is where it hit an iceberg with me, “No one, especially someone that never served’ can send our troops composed from loyal America to die for their investment. The Constitution does not suggest it or recommend it. Right or wrong there is where one must be careful not to hit what is most important,or should be, to loyal American Citizens. A foreing enemy would see this as an opportunity to attack internally, which is what they are doing, cowardly at that.

    Remember F&F? This was another chapter in his deliberate planning for more chaos.
    The Ambassador was the “patsy” this time. The plan was to trade the blind sheikh for the Ambassador. Did Obama REALLY think he could negotiate with terrorists to make him look like a hero?
    Then there’s the cover-up….which blew up in his face! This will continue on and on, I hope, until everyone knows, including the liberals what this man did…AND/OR allowed to happen!!!

    This was a planned attack and had absolutely NOTHING to do with the film:
    Anti-Muslim Film Maker Donated a Million $ and Campaigned for Obama
    Blame the movie.

    Even though “the movie” was on YouTube for months prior to the collective indignation of thousands of Middle Eastern Islamists all coming together on the eleventh anniversary of September 11th (through a wild coincidence, no doubt), we are being told by our government and our media overlords that we must blame the movie.
