Anonymous Cincinnati IRS Official: “Everything Comes From The Top.”

 

 

 

” A story in the Washington Post yesterday about the Internal Revenue Service’s Cincinnati office, which does most of the agency’s nonprofit auditing, clearly contradicted earlier reports that the agency’s targeting of Tea Party groups was the result of rogue agents.

The Post story anonymously quoted a staffer in Cincinnati as saying they only operate on directives from headquarters:

As could be expected, the folks in the determinations unit on Main Street have had trouble concentrating this week. Number crunchers, whose work is nonpolitical, don’t necessarily enjoy the spotlight, especially when the media and the public assume they’re engaged in partisan villainy.”

 

 

 

 

 

Exclusive: Benghazi Talking Points Underwent 12 Revisions, Scrubbed Of Terror Reference

” When it became clear last fall that the CIA’s now discredited Benghazi talking points were flawed, the White House said repeatedly the documents were put together almost entirely by the intelligence community, but White House documents reviewed by Congress suggest a different story.

ABC News has obtained 12 different versions of the talking points that show they were extensively edited as they evolved from the drafts first written entirely by the CIA to the final version distributed to Congress and to U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after that attack.

White House emails reviewed by ABC News suggest the edits were made with extensive input from the State Department. The edits included requests from the State Department that references to the Al Qaeda-affiliated group Ansar al-Sharia be deleted as well references to CIA warnings about terrorist threats in Benghazi in the months preceding the attack.

That would appear to directly contradict what White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said about the talking points in November.”

 ” The State Department clearly made some bad decisions about security in Libya, and whatever the complicated reasons why that happened might be, Hillary Clinton as a serious and responsible official did the right thing by stepping up to the plate.

But there is a larger failure in Libya. Just as George W. Bush couldn’t dodge responsibility for the decision to go to war in Iraq on the basis of nukes that never showed up, President Obama owns the Libya mess in which the attack in Bengazi was just an incident … “

 

“Obama’s Great Islamist Delusion has come home to roost”

  ” Well, that didn’t work out so well.
We cast aside Hosni Mubarak on a moment’s notice without taking steps to give non-Islamist parties a timetable to organize an effective
transition; we overthrew Muammar Gaddafi,teaching tyrants the lesson that giving up nuclear ambitions is a deadly mistake, and then promptly departed leaving chaos; and we have isolated Israel among a sea of Islamist radicals as it seeks to stop the Iranian’s march towards
nuclear weapon capability.

  And all the while, our own government places blame on some previously unknown guy for making some previously unknown film which might be real or not, which people who hated us
before the film take as an insult to Islam.

  We’ve even sent out federal law enforcement to locate and report on someone who committed
no crime. “
