‘The Five’: Media calls Iraq embassy attack ‘Trump’s Benghazi’

‘The Five’:  Media calls Iraq embassy attack ‘Trump’s Benghazi’


JUST TWO DAYS. THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION RESPONDED BY SENDING HUNDREDS OF TROOPS. SOME OUTLETS SLAMMING THE PRESIDENT IS EVEN TRYING TO LABEL THE INCIDENT AS TRUMP’S BENGHAZI. HERE’S A LOOK AT SOME OF THE COVERAGE.>>YOU’VE GOT THEM STOKING ANTI-AMERICANISM, GIVING AN ADVANTAGE TO IRAN. SPEAK OF THIS GOES BACK TO A RELEASE STRATEGIC DECISION THAT THE PRESIDENT MADE.>>THIS IS CERTAINLY NOT HELPFUL.>>THESE ARE TOUGH TIMES AND ONE WORRIES WHETHER THE ADMINISTRATION HAS THE SORT OF HORSE POWER AND BRAINPOWER TO DEAL WITH THEM.>>Dana: AND MSNBC PILING ON, CALLING THE EMBASSY ATTACKED TRUMP’S BENGHAZI. OTHER OUTLETS UNDER FIRE FOR LABELING THE IRANIAN BACKED MILITANTS AS JUST PROTESTERS. TO “THE NEW YORK TIMES” IS ALSO FACING SIMILAR CRITICISM FOR DESCRIBING THE ATTACKERS AS MOURNERS. A FORMER BENGHAZI TEAM MEMBER IS BLASTING THE BENGHAZI COMPARISON.>>IT’S NOT REALLY SIMILAR AT ALL. IT’S NOT ANOTHER BENGHAZI. IT’S NOT EVEN TRUMP’S BENGHAZI APPEARED TO ME, IT IS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BENGHAZI. ALL PERSONNEL WERE EVACUATED. THERE WAS NO INVESTOR THEY ARE TO BE KILLED LIKE THEY LEFT THE INVESTOR IN BENGHAZI.>>Dana: LAWRENCE, THERE WOULDN’T BE COMPARISONS TO BENGHAZI IF THERE WASN’T A BENGHAZI. AND IT REALLY IS NOT COMPARABLE.>>Lawrence: AT ALL. THERE’S A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A RIOT, HE WAS ALSO THERE, AND COORDINATED ATTACK AND THE RESPONSE WAS ALSO DIFFERENT. THERE WERE NO LIVES LOST. THE FACT IS THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP IMMEDIATELY AND THE DEFENSE DEPARTMENT, THE SECRETARY OF STATE ALL STEPPED IN AND MADE SURE THERE WERE PEOPLE THERE, THE MARINES WERE ALREADY THERE, PEOPLE WERE BEING SHIFTED AND NOBODY DIED. I JUST THINK THIS SHOWS YOU HOW FAR THE MEDIA IS WILLING TO GO TO GIVE COVER TO DEMOCRATS. AND YOU’D THINK WHEN IT COMES TO NATIONAL SECURITY, FOREIGN POLICY, ALTHOUGH WE MAY HAVE SOME DIFFERENCES, WHEN IT COMES TO ATTACK, WE SHOULD BE UNIFIED.>>Dana: YOU KNOW PROBABLY MORE ABOUT THIS ATTACK THAN ANYBODY HERE SO WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE ATTEMPTS TO COMPARE THIS. ONE OF THE THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI WAS A VIDEOMAKER GOT ARRESTED AND BASICALLY THEY DID A WALK OF HIM SAYING THE VIDEO SPARKED THE ATTACK WHEN WE KNOW THAT WASN’T TRUE.>>Marie: THEY ARE VERY DIFFERENT SITUATIONS. THE COMPOUND IN BAGHDAD IS VERY WELL PROTECTED. A BETTER COMPARISON TO BENGHAZI WAS AN ATTACK EARLIER IN THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WHEN FOUR MEMBERS OF THE ADMINISTRATION WERE KILLED IN A VERY BOTCHED OPERATION. I DON’T THINK THE COMPARISON IS FAIR HERE. SOME PEOPLE IN THE CLIPS WEREN’T TALKING ABOUT BENGHAZI, THEY WERE TALKING ABOUT WHAT PRESIDENT TRUMP STRATEGY IS VIS-A-VIS IRAN AND WHETHER HE HAS ONE, FRANKLY. MY CONCERNS ARE NOT ABOUT THE BENGHAZI, IT’S ABOUT MUCH OF WHAT TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE IN IRAN, THE IG FEELS LIKE THEY SHOULD ENCOURAGE THEIR MILITIAS IN IRAQ AND SYRIA TO DO THIS AND WE HAVE TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO RESPOND. THE ISRAELIS HAVE TAKEN A LOT OF KINETIC ACTION AGAINST SHIITE MILITIAS BACKED BY IRAN BUT THEY DO IT MUCH MORE QUIETLY BECAUSE THEY ARE TRYING TO SEND A MESSAGE BUT NOT PROVOKE SOME OF THE OUTRAGE WE’VE SEEN ON THE GROUND WHICH CAN PUT SOME OF OUR PEOPLE IN HARM’S WAY’S. THE RESULT OF THAT IS WE DON’T OF PEOPLE ON THE GROUND DOING AMERICAN DIPLOMACY.>>Dana: THEY ARE THERE TO HELP PROTECT THEM BUT ONE REASON IRAN HAS BEEN ABLE TO TRAIN UP ALL THESE OTHER MILITIAS IS BECAUSE THEY GOT HIM BECAUSE THEY GOT AIM BECAUSE THEY GOT A LOT OF MONEY DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION.>>Tom: WHAT DIFFERENCE AT THIS POINT DOESN’T MAKE?>>Dana: CALLBACK, THAT IS A CALL BACK RIGHT THERE.>>Tom: I WANT TO SHAME THE MEDIA ON THIS BECAUSE THE HEADLINES FROM IT LOOKS LIKE “THE WASHINGTON POST” AND “THE NEW YORK TIMES,” THEY HAVE TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN — THERE ARE PROTESTS IN IRAQ SIX OCTOBER. THIS IS WHAT YOU’VE SEEN ON TWITTER, I AM ONE OF THE REAL PROTESTERS, I’VE BEEN PROTESTING THIS GOVERNMENT BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY ANGRY IN IRAQ, THEY WANT REFORMS. THEY CAME IN AND PIGGYBACKED ON THOSE PROTESTS AND THE MEETING NEEDS TO DIFFERENTIATE AND THEY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOB.>>Dana: THE ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE THAT BUT WE HAVE SOME SOUNDS HERE FROM PRESIDENT PRESIDENT TRUMP — I’M LIKE, EMILY? I LOOKED UP AND I WAS LIKE, I’M GOING TO REMEMBER YOUR NAME. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IT IS, ACTUALLY. WE’VE BEEN WORKING DURING THE HOLIDAYS AND IF YOU’RE LIKE ME YOU ARE LIKE, IS IT FRIDAY? AS OF MONDAY? I HAVE NO IDEA. TAKE A LOOK AT PRESIDENT TRUMP, WHO OBVIOUSLY KNOWS WHAT DAY IT IS.>>WE HAD SOME GREAT WARRIORS COME IN, DO A FANTASTIC JOB. THEY WERE THERE INSTANTANEOUSLY. AS SOON AS WE HEARD, I USED THE WORD IMMEDIATELY. THEY CAME IN IMMEDIATELY. GREAT SHAPE. AS YOU KNOW, THIS WILL NOT BE A BENGHAZI. BENGHAZI NEVER SHOULD HAVE HAPPENED. THIS WILL NEVER, EVER BE A BENGHAZI.>>Emily: IT IS NOT COMPARABLE ON ANY LEVEL. WE HAVE MADE EFFORTS NOT TO BACK IRANIAN MILITIAS AS WE HAVE BEEN FIGHTING ISIS THIS WHOLE TIME, AND THE CONTINUED AGGRESSION WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. I AGREE WITH YOU THAT THERE IS A BIT OF NEBULOUS NOTES AND STRATEGY IN THE PAST COUPLE OF YEARS BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS WE HAVE TAKEN THAT HARD LINE STANCE WITH A VERY ARTICULABLE POSITION THAT WILL SERVE US WELL IN THE LONG TERM. I THINK THE IRAQI GOVERNMENT, OBVIOUSLY THEY ARE IN A DIFFICULT POSITION BUT REGARDLESS, THEY NEED TO TAKE A STANCE, THEY NEED TO PROTECT OUR EMBASSY, AND TO YOUR POINT NOT

  1. Untrue, trump actually did something about the attack, and this is the result of the Obama administrations lack of leadership by never defending when an american was attacked. Remember, Obama gave them billions , billions to those who want us dead. Now our President has to clean up the last Traitors actions.

  2. It's so funny how all of these news mouthpieces one to blame Trump for every little thing that goes wrong every little thing that goes wrong anywhere in the world is Trump Trump trump but yet when our economy is booming unemployment is down and all the good things that are going on in this country have nothing to do with trump it was all all that started with Obama or well that's not even Trump Trump's not in control of that Trump has nothing to do with that it's just so funny because Trump doesn't act on his own no matter what he might be the president or the so-called commander and chief but he does not act on his own he might be the final decision maker but he's acting on intelligence coming from multiple sources

  4. Trump is president of this country and was put there by the American people in an elections and the press is just a lot of dumb mouths giving out stupid opinions of your owner's and has nothing to do with real journalism where they take the time to make sure the truth is there before running their reports about things. America no longer has a media with real journalist.

  5. THE IRAQI SENATE HAS VOTED THEY WANT ALL FOREIGNOCCHOYG FOREIGN OCCUPYING FORCES TO LEAVE THEIR COUNTRY. SO IF PEOPLE LIKE DEMOCRACY THEY NEED TO LISTEN TO THIS. IF TRUMP LIKES DEMOCRACY THEN HE NEEDS TO LISTEN TO THIS DOESNT HE

  6. Trump keep it going. Let the world know an attack on America or its people or allies will result in swift retaliation. God Bless you Mr Trump our Prayers are with you.

  7. By the way..Mr. Trump instead of select targets a simple carpet bombing will make them think twice. WWII style.

  8. By the way Kenya is already starving. Stop all foreign and humanitarian aid. The criminals steel it from the people that need it anyway.

  9. When it comes down to it, we really don't know the FULL TRUTH of what really is being sold to us, only what we're programmed to believe. It's way deeper than what we're being led to believe! Stop trusting the first narrative you're being told. And do the DEEP RESEARCH!

  10. I wish they would leave our country that they are so upset with and move to Iran..they would be happy there…😃

  11. When are we going to arrest the treasonous democrats and their media Liars. Another reason it's NOT BENGHAZI is the current American Embassy in Iraq complies with the ( Admiral) Inman protocol, and that is the required hardening of the perimeter, guarded and controlled access and the proper amount of protective troops, either domestic or American or Both. Bengali on the other hand, was not an Embassy not a Consulate, it was designated " a SPECIL MISSION" a made up designation that DID NOT COMPLY WITH THE INMAN PROTOCOL ! That was done on purpose ! The entire Special Mission team was over run within minutes as they were NOT adequately protected, and the compounded NOT secure enough. The 17 Feburary militia " protecting" the front gate were " armed" with baseball bats ! And despite various requests for additional protection, we're DENIED by Clinton's State Dept Staff, we have seen the emails, via Judicial Watch ! And it was not due to any budget cuts, as you Moron Democrats claim, as Hillary allowed a BILLION DOLLARS of State dept money to go " MISSING" !

  12. The funny side of this is trump put a big ole bullseye target on the side of all the trump towers. Of coarse the trump supporters will stay at his hotels because the world is safer now. What an idiot!.

  13. Not sure if her name is emilly,or not ,according to the other reporter ,but I am sure about….ssssheee is HOT !!!! I'm trying to figure out how to go about asking benny's Smith how an why they were able to put a beautiful mermaid inside a purple or(hot pink) cryaon….heyeeeeee

  14. 😳 what the heck was that at 6:10 of this video The ladies voice changes I don’t know if it was a edit or what freaked me out 😂

  15. I find it laughable when they show the comments from the crooked media outlets! Does anyone know where they found these people?? They put on anyone they kind find to criticize President Trump. A bunch of no-namers!

  16. Another smear to get our vote. Bengazi will always be hussain obama,s cross to bear. Hes got blood on his hands , not Trump.

  17. Trump needs to drop more bombs most the people bitching about going to war are old and wouldn't even be there in first place I'm 21 I'm ready to fight. Country has been way to passive for to many years we are the standard we are the greatest country in the world.

  18. How is this a partisan issue? American lives, and foreign lives are at risk and all these people are talking about is “Democrats this Democrat’s that, trump wants this, the democrats want something else” or on CNN the opposite. What happened to the news? Why am I having to learn about Iran from random people on YouTube? I cant get more than a brush on the topic bc there’s so much in fighting between identity politics in the US, like I’m tired of hearing about either side, what is the fate of the American people and how are we going to come together and solve these things as a whole? Bickering about which side of the spectrum you fall on won’t help lol

  19. Desperate for an education;  Your parents did not get, generation after generation?  Poverty is all you are taught.

  20. Now that Obama’s poll numbers are in tailspin – watch for him to launch a strike in Libya or Iran. He is desperate. — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 9, 2012

    Don't let Obama play the Iran card in order to start a war in order to get elected–be careful Republicans!
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) October 22, 2012

    I predict that President Obama will at some point attack Iran in order to save face! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 16, 2013

    Remember what I previously said–Obama will someday attack Iran in order to show how tough he is.
    — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 25, 2013

    Remember that I predicted a long time ago that President Obama will attack Iran because of his inability to negotiate properly-not skilled! — Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 11, 2013

  21. Shameful indeed… This is far beyond benghazi! This is a leader who was killed on his own soil. Let's not down play the pressure that's on Trumps administration. It's not the tragedy of benghazi, it's the location that makes for a relevant comparison. Come on…

  22. MSNBC,are nothing but pot stirrer, spreading nothing accusations, not facts they should be removed from the media outlets, TV and so on!

  23. Trump when tampering with a deal that already been in place that he didn't have to go bother start there. The fact that he would in there and then he created this. This channel don't have the will power to speak to the subject is weak Watching your channel news report is my watch it heroin addictsl fighting over a dirty drug needle.

  24. I like the fact that the media are bringing up Benghazi because it shows the stark difference between the Trumps response and Killary's lack of response

  25. Why Does The Media Insists In Wanting The President To Reveal His Strategy In Handling The Situation In Iran.. "Publicly" ..Why??

  26. So far Trump has always shown great thinking. It is important to stay absolutely cool in any situation. The economy is the best and the motivation is very high ! America does not need new wars now. That's true !

  27. all the morons who think President Trump miscalculated are in for a big surprise. The Iranians are not dumb, and although some terrorists are suicidal, an entire country is not. Had this been any other president heretofore, yes, we could expect a big response. But the Iranians view this president just as the radical Democrats in Congress, a mad man who will do exactly as he threatens (and he will). Therefore, the Iranians will NOT do much now, only hope for a whimpy Democrat to be elected in Nov. Chances are Trump will be reelected, at that point, I think we will see the Iranians coming to the negotiation table and their nuclear aspirations will be done. Trump will be the first person to welcome them back into the comity of nations, when they verifiably agree to stop supporting world terrorism.

  28. Sure maybe its Trumps Benghazi I guess, but he responded the right way this time. What does the media want? More dead Americans? Thats Clintons thing

  29. If you'd called them mourners the day after, it would've been true 🙂 Trump gave them something to mourn about 🙂

  30. who is superman?

    Dear friend reading this text, I want to talk about a story you've heard or seen many times.

    We have all probably played it with our kids or read our story to our children at night. Yes Superman story.

    A human story with an extraterrestrial power that went against all evil, and saved all the people of our neighborhood, city, or country from bad things.

    And when the story was over. We were talking to ourselves ((I wish there was Superman))

    I have news for you:

    There was a superman, but they killed it a few days ago.

    Yes, real superman. I am talking about someone who saved his city and country from the bad guys and saved all the people of Asia, Europe and Africa from the bad things.

    In your opinion, if anyone has done something to save the world, can he be called a superman?

    If so,

    I tell you that superman is now dead, he is killed.

    ((2020/01/03 – 1:00 am))

    Investigate his life to get to know him more, because those who killed him don't want you to know him.

  31. The 5 medias are wrong ,why would the raticals in Iran riot and tear up their own country after the embassy. they have done far more destruction around the world as well as America. Wow and te politics here are crazy  maybe we should have another Twin Towers  as far as they are concerned, just because the President has the power to do the right thing ,maybe he should send money like Obama did

  32. There is only one Benghazi tragedy and that would Be owned by Hillary Clinton…. and yet she's not in prison for any of her crimes for any of the many many crimes?????????????!

  33. Anybody that can’t see that the left leaning America hating media hacks are against EVERYTHING AMERICAN. Anti Trumpers in the Media are ANTI AMERICAN. Come on! If Trump says black they scream white. We are damned if we do, and damned if we don’t according to cnn and other hacks like them. President Trump gets attacked CONSTANTLY by media TRAITORS and when they attack him, they attack us, the American People. Period. They should be deported to the Middle East….and banned from re-entry into the U.S. forever. If they are so pro Iran then get the hell out immediately. And that includes Democrat Juan …. the rest of the Five are awesome and interesting making great talking points. Thank you The Five. 🙏❤️🇺🇸 Mainstream Media hacks and Democrats and Anti Trumpers are the ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE. Tired of their bullying

  34. Propaganda war mongers here. To all who are for this actions and ask why doesn't every country don't like Americans. Just watch this from their eyes…

  35. This is no Benghazi. He was involved, made critical decisions in a timely matter, he did not sit and do nothing while it was going on like Obama and Clinton. He made sure no one died on our side. The media who suggests it is Trump's Benghazi is just plain stupid. There is no comparison at all. One was handled like an expert leader would do it and Benghazi was handled by Obama and Clinton very stupidly by sitting there and watching it happen and they made no effort to protect our people in danger. They should be charged with treason.
