  ” Petraeus’s testimony on Benghazi would have been of much more value than any other witness’s, and thus more potentially damaging to Obama. We know that Americans were under attack, and that both the CIA and the State Department were aware of it in real time. We also know that U.S. aircraft stationed at Sigonella, Italy, could have flown to their aid in less than an hour to suppress the attack and possibly save American lives. And we know that Petraeus — a former top commander who knows how to use air power, special forces, and all the other tools of war — would have been pressed by the committee on why those aircraft weren’t ordered in during the course of a seven-hour attack.

In short, Petraeus was in a position to know more, and explain better than anyone else other than Hillary Clinton or President Obama, what precisely happened here while the Benghazi attack went on. If he were honest — and that has to be presumed — his testimony could have blown the Benghazi affair sky high.”

” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has turned down an invitation to testify before the House Foreign Affairs Committee next Thursday on the Benghazi attack. “

Clinton To Step Down As Secretary of State

A day after President Barack Obama was re-elected, Hillary Clinton’s spokesman announced that the U.S. Secretary of State will step down from her current role soon after the President’s second inauguration in January 2013.

 ” The spokesman declared that Clinton intends to ensure continuity and realizes that the appointment of a new Secretary of State will take multiple days after the inauguration.

It is assumed that one of the most likely candidates that Obama could propose as the new Secretary of State would be Senator John Kerry of Massachusetts, who is currently the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the losing Democratic Presidential Candidate in the 2004 presidential race. Other potential candidates include Bill Richardson, who served as the U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. during Bill Clinton’s mandate, and Samantha Power, currently serving as Special Assistant to President Obama and running the Office of Multilateral Affairs and Human Rights as Senior Director of Multilateral Affairs on the Staff of the National Security Council.”

Clinton: I’m Responsible For Diplomats’ Security

 

 

  She’s right , she is responsible and should take some responsibility but what are the chances that she was calling all the shots in Mr Narcissism’s world ? We would say slim to none . So that begs the question , why doesn’t the buck stop in it’s proper place … the White House ? 

 

  ” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Monday tried to douse a political firestorm over the deadly assault on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya, saying she’s responsible for the security of American diplomatic outposts.

“I take responsibility,” Clinton said during a visit to Peru. “I’m in charge of the State Department’s 60,000-plus people all over the world, 275 posts. The president and the vice president wouldn’t be knowledgeable about specific decisions that are made by security professionals. They’re the ones who weigh all of the threats and the risks and the needs and make a considered decision.”

But she said an investigation now under way will ultimately determine what happened at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, where Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed on September 11.

“I take this very personally,” Clinton said. “So we’re going to get to the bottom of it, and then we’re going to do everything we can to work to prevent it from happening again, and then we’re going to work to bring whoever did this to us to justice.” “

 

What exactly is Hilary getting out of this ” magnanimous ” gesture of under-busing ?

It’s Getting Mighty Crowded Down There

 

 

 

   ” My guess is no, they wouldn’t dare, but the Daily Caller and Tom Maguire make a fair point. In the span of about 18 hours, we’ve had Biden and Carney each insist that blame for Benghazi’s security failures lies outside the White House. It’s State that’s responsible for protecting U.S. diplomats in the field, which means if the buck doesn’t stop with Obama here, then it must stop with you-know-who. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem, as cabinet members are expected to take the heat for the president when something goes badly wrong. But in this case you-know-who has her eye on running in 2016 — possibly against (heh) Biden himself — and surely doesn’t want Benghazi staining the foreign policy credentials she’s worked hard to build.

Throw Bill Clinton, official Obama campaign surrogate, into the mix and we’ve got the makings of a nuclear clusterfark of ego, ass-covering, presidential ambition, and Clintonian drama. Edward Klein says the chain reaction is already in motion: “

But Not Benghazi

What a hell-hole … Thank God for the Marines

” (CNS News ) When terrorists
attacked the U.S. consulate in
Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11 of this
year and killed the U.S.
ambassador and three other
Americans, there were no U.S.
Marines deployed in Libya to
defend U.S. diplomats, diplomatic
facilities and classified information
and equipment.

  However, says the State
Department, a Marine Security
Detachment was deployed on that
day to carry out those duties at the
U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown,
Barbados. “

Benghazi: Osama’s Revenge on Obama

  “Talk about chickens coming home to roost. Talk about the Mother of All Fiascos. It’s the
revenge of Osama bin Laden from the bottom of the ocean, and the message is plain: al-Qaeda is very much alive, and America is a paper tiger.

  The Middle East is beginning to fall apart — Iran just sent a spy drone over Israel’s sensitive defense installations, and the IDF
waited hours to react; Turkey forced down a Syrian arms plane, and al-Qaeda’s Al Zawahiri openly assaulted the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi in a six-hour attack,
working through al-Qaeda in the Maghreb (AQIM), while the glorious Libyan friends did nothing as our ambassador was being raped and murdered. The guards called for
help, and nobody responded. A police car fled the scene. The other ten cop cars requested by the consulate never showed up. “

Lies on top of lies on top of lies …

 

 

” Breaking news from ABC: a senior State Department official, apparently trying to get bad news out in anticipation of a Congressional hearing tomorrow, has started to come clean on the Benghazi consulate attack. He admitted to ABC that there never was a protest at the consulate, as the Obama administration has always claimed. Rather, the first warning those inside the consulate had that something was wrong was an explosion. They looked out and saw a large number of armed men approaching. It was a terrorist attack, pure and simple, well-planned and well-executed. It had nothing to do with a YouTube video.”

 The Administration’s Messy Story on Libya Attack

  “Washington is notorious for dropping news it doesn’t want scrutinized too closely on the last day of the work week. So last Friday was a convenient time for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) to release a statement about the Obama Administration’s conflicting accounts of the attack that killed the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.

The ODNI statement appears intentionally vague on exactly what it knew when and who was told. It does little to address concerns that the President’s senior supporters seemed more concerned about minimizing criticism of the White House than addressing the threat of transnational terrorism.

The question remains: Why did senior officials issue contradictory and wrong accounts of what happened during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi?”

Mr. President: Take down this film!

  ” The film, about as offensive to Muslims as “Piss Christ” is to most Christian (and many non-Christian) Americans, was seen by the administration as a perfectly plausible reason for these riots (and murders) to have happened. “Piss Christ,” meanwhile, which received an award and a $15,000 National Endowment for the Arts grant when it was first exhibited, is on display in a gallery in Manhattan this week.

Though Obama and Hillary Clinton have yet to be heard on this depiction of Jesus submerged in a jar filled with urine, they have been filled with remorse at the insult to Muslims. So remorseful, in fact, that they spent $70,000 on ads airing in Pakistan. As the wonderful Mark Steyn informs us, “Obama and Clinton are currently starring as the Siskel & Ebert of Pakistani TV, giving two thumbs down to ‘Innocence of Muslims’ in hopes that it will dissuade local moviegoers from giving two heads off to consular officials.” “

Well , Duh !

“Yes, Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and yes, Obama and the State Dept. have known all along”

” Fox News follows up on Eli Lake’s report yesterday:

U.S. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours of the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that it was a terrorist attack and suspected Al Qaeda-tied elements were involved, sources told Fox News — though it took the administration a week to acknowledge it.

The account conflicts with claims on the Sunday after the attack by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice that the administration believed the strike was a “spontaneous” event triggered by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islam film.”

Big Hairy News

  “Barely 24 hours after the White House’s last failed effort to reach out to the Islamic world, Muslims are in an uproar over a video released by the State Department showing Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton suffering a “Janet Jackson” style wardrobe malfunction while apologizing to Muslims.”

No Surprises Here

“COLONEL: HILLARY MADE DECISION NOT TO POST MARINES AT BENGHAZI”

  “In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department:

The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it.

Earlier, on Howie Carr’s radio show Thursday, Colonel Hunt said that the American mission at Benghazi “was like a cardboard building, there wasn’t even bullet proof glass.” In addition, Hunt said the security guards inside the mission didn’t have bullets:

Howie Carr: They weren’t allowed to have bullets, is that correct? 

 

Colonel Hunt: That’s true. They were private security. The rules of engagement were ridiculous. “

She’s No Dummy … Ha

   ” Did Hillary Clinton turn down the opportunity to replace Joe Biden as soon as two weeks ago in a
White House lunch with Valerie Jarrett?

   Ed Klein, author of “The Amateur,” says his sources in the Hillary camp say it’s true in an appearance last night on CNBC with Larry Kudlow. Not only did she turn Obama down, but according to Klein, Obama’s “socialistic policies” are part of the reason the presumed 2016 frontrunner wants
to maintain her distance from the campaign: “

    Andrew McCarthy relates the facts about Huma Abedin and her CLOSE connections to the Muslim Brotherhood .

   Kudos to Michelle Bachmann and the others who have the courage to speak out .

   What we here would like to know is , how could someone with her background work for our government in ANY capacity at all ? It’s a disgrace .

” Senator John McCain ought to be embarrassed. So should House Speaker John Boehner and
Congressman Mike Rogers, the former FBI agent who chairs the Select Committee on Intelligence.

   These pillars of the Republican establishment have been championing the cause of Huma
Abedin, the deputy chief of staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Ms. Abedin’s name arose, along with several others, in connection with questions pressed by five conservative House Republicans regarding Muslim Brotherhood
infiltration of the United States government.

   The GOP establishment, led by McCain, Boehner, and Rogers, has been slamming Congresswoman
Michele Bachmann, one of the five House conservatives, over her refusal to back down from concerns over Ms. Abedin.
Here are four things, among many, that we now know: “
