Go Jason . LOL … ” You have more security than Chris Stevens had in Benghazi.” Shame on you Hillary . Shame on you .
” No your eyes are not deceiving you. Do you want proof of high treason? Look no further than video footage received from Libya called “the sea of arms.”
This video is not fake or even satire. I wish it were. This comes directly from the Al Qaeda forces in Libya as a way of bragging. This is literally a stock pile of anti-aircraft and anti-tank missiles handed directly to the Libyan rebels. This does not include the weapons deal that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens.”
This is a totally unsubstantiated claim as a Google translation of some of the comments yields very ambiguous results . If some viewer is proficient in Arabic we would be eternally grateful for a translation of the video’s dialogue .
” Dear Rep. Trey Gowdy,
I probably speak on behalf of many (millions?) of American citizens when I say I am most happy at the US House of Reps. forming a select committee to fully investigate Benghazi.
However, right from the get-go, I have reservations on what the intended outcome of this committee will be. You see, I don’t trust most folks in Washington, Deceit.
Will House Speaker John Boehner make a premeditated political show of this thing by reverse engineering it to appear to seek the truth in Benghazi, but actually just produce nothing but Republican-advantageous noise and prosperous backroom deals all during this 2014 election year?
So, the charter or mission statement and limits of jurisdiction and judicial empowerment of said committee must be disclosed up front to all Americans to see for themselves if the stated mission is to be a noble-full-weight-of–the–law mission or a theatrical-no-one-will-be-punished mission, especially if Boehner and his pals risk being indicted for his involvement in any Benghazi-associated cover-up.
If we fast forward to the year 2017 and see Barry Soetoro-Obama retiring with a hefty pension, hefty health care package, hefty Security coverage, new Obama Presidential Library, and lucrative speaking engagements instead of rotting in a jail cell for any convicted treasonous involvement with the Benghazi murders, then we will know. And my grandson in the year 2074 will know when he is my age, that this so-called select committee never intended to find the whole truth and never intended from the get-go to punish anyone involved in Benghazi….and America just drifts out to sea as a lawless, immoral disheveled ship of state.
Here are some things I expect to see as a natural-born American taxpayer:
1) You pretty much set up the mission and have free-reign to prosecute like the trained and experienced professional you are; let the cards fall where they may and the convicted get punished per existing laws. Why you? Because you appear to be a Nun among Whores in Washington, Deceit.
2) Include private citizens who have shown a commitment to pursue this case to a whole-truth-and-consequence conclusion, such as Tom Fitton and Larry Klayman of Judical Watch, Sherriff Joe Arpaio and LT Mike Zullo, the Citizens Committee on Benghazi, Orly Taitz, and other outside professionals.
3) Set a timetable and move this investigation along expeditiously, say, completed by October 2014 or sooner if possible. If any stonewalling, delays, resistance, lying, boycotts, witness tampering, etc. are detected, swiftly fine or imprison the offenders for contempt or obstruction of justice. “

” I learned about the proximity of the staging area of the attack to the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, and the attackers were indeed Ansar al-Sharia, a group affiliated with al-Qaida. I came to understand why Ambassador Chris Stevens was there in the first place and that he had in fact requested better security but was denied – the question is, by whom? And I learned that the Martyrs of 17 February Brigade were in charge of security and were the ones who opened the gates, then fled.
I learned there are those who are being threatened with their pensions being cut off if they come forth to speak.
And I learned, as I presumed, that there was a covert weapons scheme going on in Libya, Benghazi. We had been supplying radical Islamists with weapons against Libyan President Moammar Gadhafi, effectively supplying the enemy and destabilizing that country. And it seems that there was a CIA weapons buy-back program, the aim of which was to ship the retrieved weapons out of Libya through Turkey, and to the Islamist forces in Syria.
Benghazi and the operations in Libya are shrouded in a fog of lies, deceit, manipulation, threats, intimidation, coercion, abandonment, and worst of all, potentially treason.”
” Jake Tapper of CNN’s “The Lead” had Rep. Trey Gowdy on to
talk about the Benghazi investigationtry to poke holes in any Benghazi investigation.
Tapper played video of the former deputy director of the CIA, Michael Morrell, testifying that the CIA did believe that the video could be involved. He obviously thought that this negated any need for an investigation by Trey Gowdy and the special committee and proceeded to ask Gowdy to comment on the CIA director’s comments.
Trey Gowdy has a great response. But what he says at the end should shock every American. If its truly this bad, then this investigation is going to bring a lot of people down.”
” Capitol Hill police are investigating emailed threats to Rep. Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina congressman tabbed to head a special panel to probe the White House’s response to the Benghazi terrorist attacks.
Politico reporters and journalists at other news outlets say they’ve received at least two emails that threaten harm to Mr. Gowdy due directly to his leading role on the panel. Capitol Police refused to comment on the actual threats, except to say that “an active, open investigation” has been launched, Politico reported.”
” Rep. Trey Gowdy said Friday that he has evidence of a “systematic, intentional” effort by the Obama administration to withhold documents from Congress about the 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed four Americans.
” I have evidence that, not only are they hiding it, there’s an intent to hide it,” the South Carolina Republican told “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren” on Fox News. “I can’t disclose that evidence yet, but I have evidence that there was a systematic, intentional decision to withhold certain documents from Congress — and we’re just sick of it.” “
” Dominos are falling in the Benghazi cover-up. Today, explosive and emotional testimony from Brig. Gen. Robert Lovell (Ret.), former Intelligence Director of U.S. Africa Command, rocked the House Government Oversight Committee. Lowell held his post at the time of the Benghazi attack, which fell into his area of command. From the U.S. base in Stuttgart, Germany, Lovell watched the message traffic relating to Benghazi, in real time, as the attack was unfolding.
As Lovell stated, it is “my duty” to come forward to give the American people a “full forthcoming” about what happened. The discussion in the post-Benghazi investigations has focused on issues such as time, distance and assets that could have been used to rescue the Americans under attack. However, said Lovell, his voice filling with emotion,
“The point is we should have tried. The military is trained to go in the direction of gunfire.”
In Benghazi they did not, and the question remains why.”

” A new poll shows former secretary of state Hillary Clinton’s (D) numbers hitting their lowest point in six years.
Meanwhile, it finds that the Republican Party is experiencing something of a renaissance.
The Fox News poll, from Democratic pollster Anderson Robbins Research and GOP pollster Shaw & Company, shows Clinton’s favorable rating dropping to 49 percent, compared to 45 percent unfavorable.
The last time her numbers were in that ballpark was during the 2008 Democratic presidential primary race. After she ended her campaign, her favorable/unfavorable split was 47/46.
Other polls have shown Clinton’s numbers — which were stellar during her time as secretary of state — steadily dropping since she left her post last year.
The more surprising part of the Fox poll, though, might be how people view the Republican Party. It shows Americans are now evenly split — 45 percent to 45 percent — on the GOP. As recently as October, the same poll showed just 30 percent of Americans viewed the GOP favorably, compared to 63 percent unfavorable.”
” Former Secretary of State and potential Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, recently canceled her plans to appear as the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy, taking place April 11th in San Diego, amid planned fervent protests from local San Diego residents.
Protesters have organized under the banner of “The Difference Matters” coalition, a group that primarily consist of local San Diego women who refuse to allow Clinton into their community because of her alleged role in the Benghazi cover up scandal.
Clinton originally planned to deliver the speech in person, but it is now understood that she will speak to the audience via a satellite feed displayed onto a large projection screen during the conference, PR Newswire reports.”

” Who do you want answering the phone in the White House when a crisis arises at 3 AM?”
” During a Congressional hearing that lasted more than three hours, former C.I.A. Deputy Director Michael Morell praised his former agency’s intelligence analysts as the best on the globe, yet ones who he admits were sorely mistaken when they reported that spontaneous protesters were to blame for the Benghazi, Libya terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2012.
“ As you now know, subsequent information revealed their judgment to be incorrect [but]…that is where the best available information led them at the time, not because of politics,” Morell testified before the House Intelligence Committee today.
When Morell’s own C.I.A. station chief in Tripoli, Libya sent evidence that the Benghazi attacks were not the outgrowth of protests over a YouTube video, he says he and his Washington analysts disregarded it and didn’t pass it along to other agencies.
Morell was called to testify after several Republican member of Congress alleged new evidence shows he misled them by withholding what he knew about the genesis of the government’s so-called talking points after the attacks. It turns out that Morell was a key player in editing the talking points and interfacing with the White House.”
The Washington analysts and bureaucrats disregarded the reports from “boots on the ground” and placed the blame on “spontaneous demonstrations” and we are supposed to believe that it had nothing to do with politics ? Try again Morrell , you corrupt bastard .

” Muskogee Police are still looking for two men who tried to rob people inside a house late Saturday night; a neighbor shot and killed the third suspect.
Kyle Ford said the men were threatening him and he had no choice but to fire his gun.
Muskogee Police say it looks like Ford clearly acted in self-defense and a criminal defense attorney we spoke with said Oklahoma law protects anyone who feels their life is in danger.
” If I would not have had my gun I don’t believe that I would be here today to tell you the story about it,” Ford said.
Ford said he was scared for his life Saturday night.
Muskogee Police said suspect who died has been identified as Joshua Salyer, 40, of Muskogee.”

” Before the Obama administration gave an inaccurate narrative on national television that the Benghazi attacks grew from an anti-American protest, the CIA’s station chief in Libya pointedly told his superiors in Washington that no such demonstration occurred, documents and interviews with current and former intelligence officials show.
The attack was “not an escalation of protests,” the station chief wrote to then-Deputy CIA Director Michael J. Morell in an email dated Sept. 15, 2012 — a full day before the White House sent Susan E. Rice to several Sunday talk shows to disseminate talking points claiming that the Benghazi attack began as a protest over an anti-Islam video.”
Ex-Deputy Director CIA Michael Morrell
” That the talking points used by Mrs. Rice, who was then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, were written by a CIA that ignored the assessment by its own station chief inside Libya, has emerged as one of the major bones of contention in the more than two years of political fireworks and congressional investigations into the Benghazi attack.
Two former intelligence officials have told The Washington Times that this question likely will be answered at a Wednesday hearing of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence during which Mr. Morell is scheduled to give his public testimony.
Another former intelligence official told The Times that Mr. Morell did tell the White House and the State Department that the CIA station chief in Libya had concluded that there was no protest but senior Obama administration and CIA officials in Washington ignored the assessment.
Why they ignored it remains a topic of heated debate within the wider intelligence community.
A third source told The Times on Monday that Mr. Morell and other CIA officials in Washington were weighing several pieces of “conflicting information” streaming in about the Benghazi attack as the talking points were being crafted.”

Coincidentally, Alisyn Camerota announced today that she’s leaving Fox News after 16 years, leaving a vacancy in the 1 p.m. hour. (Seriously, though, I think that’s a coincidence.)
Attkisson, who has been with CBS News for two decades, had grown frustrated with what she saw as the network’s liberal bias, an outsized influence by the network’s corporate partners and a lack of dedication to investigative reporting, several sources said. She increasingly felt like her work was no longer supported and that it was a struggle to get her packages on television.”

” If former CIA Director David Petraeus and his ex-deputy Michael Morell are recalled to testify on Benghazi, they can expect hard questions about the mortar attack on the CIA annex which killed two former Navy SEALs.
Republican Mike Rogers, chairman of the powerful House Intelligence Committee, is weighing whether to recall one or both of those officials over their Benghazi congressional testimony.”
” Rogers said the evidence suggests a highly skilled team carried out the mortar strike. Fox News has confirmed five rounds were fired in under a minute, with three hitting the annex roof — a target roughly the size of two convenience stores.
” This was exceptionally good shooting. It was clearly accurate. They adjusted their fire, which is a term a mortar crew might use, so they went a little long and a little short and they fired for effect,” Rogers said. “When you fire for effect and you have three rounds hit exactly where they were intended that ended up taking the lives of our American heroes there, that tells me that they knew exactly what they were doing. So that was either significantly preplanned, or it was a mortar crew that was exceptionally good.”
Spontaneous my a** … Lies , lies and more lies . It took only two ranging shots from these spontaneous amateurs to be able to drop the next three rounds right on the Annex roof ? Sure . And ponder this little fact found near the end of the story :
” While the CIA annex was heavily fortified, its security cameras intact and a drone overhead throughout the attack, there is apparently no video of the mortar strike itself.”

Hillary leaves a legacy of corruption and failure that would be apparent to all if she , and democrats in general , weren’t treated as idols and protected by the very media whom the public relies on to vet their public officials . We’ve already seen the destruction that can be wrought by 5 years of a rank amateur leading the country . What would at least 4 years of leadership from one of the most corrupt individuals to ever sit in the White House bring ?
