Two top senators on the Foreign Relations Committee don't want to wait for the State Department to do its own investigation into the Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi that killed four Americans including Ambassador Chris Stevens; they want Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to show them Stevens's diplomatic cables and other correspondence now. (Snip) "To that end, we request that you transmit to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee all communications between the U.S. Mission to Libya and the State Department relevant to the security situation in Benghazi in the period leading up to the attacks, including, but not limited to,
Comments: Better get them now before they are inadvertently ''lost." We all know how Hillary is with sensitive documents.
Yes, I'm sure she put them in the same place she left those Arkansas Rose Law Firm billing records......and if not there, I'm sure she has a black secretary she could blame it on. In the meantime, repeat after me: "I can't recall....I can't recall.....I can't recall.....I can't recall....I can't recall.....I can't recall............
John Bolton on Fox News said that the "diary" CNN ended up with was in all probability the ambassador's journal, with notes on things connected with his position. It was only seven pages. He further said that, being concerned about conditions in the area and the security of the consulate, Ambassador Stevens would have contacted State in Washington with full information.
I am glad that they are pressing for these communications before they go mysteriously "missing".
...NOW is the time to put some pressure on getting the facts. They idea of taking til spring for a report is simply not acceptable considering both HRC and our boy won-duh should both be gone by then. This administration is finally imploding and the american voter deserves to know how badly it was handled by them before November...
all your minds are in a blender if anyone truly believes that one iota of information will come out before Nov. 6th, or that any of the chump/Howard Stern voters really care. As Donald Trump said, he is the teflon president, and that certainly applies to members of his LYING administratioin, like Hillary.
Well then the Senators will probably have to get them from the Libyans, assuming Hillary hasn't gotten to them yet. She's grabbing the fire extinguishers and trying to put out the fires....suppression/damage control. She's been taking lessons from Bamster to cover bases. Gee I hope her de fence doesn't interfere with all the good work she's been doing. /s off.
Beyond dereliction, wonder what the ulterior motives could have been?: The ambassador had implicative information on the admin colluding with Al Queda, was possibly going to spill the beans, required elimination?; a sacrifice on the altar to Islam?; an excuse to move against free speech from a UN perspective? Some combo? The enemy had way too much detailed information to believe DC wasn't somehow complicit.
It'll all come out eventually-after the election if the communists in DC are lucky.
The Democrat Party with the support and collusion of the MSM forms a formidable enemy of America. They pose a much larger threat to the future of America than Iran, the Taliban, China and all Muslim nut cases combined. This November election is the most critical in all American history. If the Democrats and the looters and moochers prevail we are screwed.
It was speculated that she was leaving after this term regardless of the outcome of the election. Now she can leave in shame as I fault this all on her. I dont know how she can sleep at night, knowing this was avoidable. To create a "panel" to "look" into this is only a stall tactic for the truth. There was never any confusion after 9/11. We knew who the enemy was. This whole episode is an outrage!
These aren't the first people that have met an untimely fate at the hands of a Clinton. The people running this country at the top level are corrupt, irresponsible and lazy. Do you think they care that people actually die, when they don't do their job. Just another day in paradise for them.
Note she has appointed 83 year old Thomas Pickering to investigate-the coverup is continuing. After 9/11 hilarynheld up a sign in senate-what did go know and when? Time for republicans to throwmit back in the Palestinian loving communist witch's face.
We at Townhall have been covering this hotly contested Senate race for months and the results are finally in: With 36 percent of precincts reporting, Elizabeth Warren has been declared the next junior Senator from Massachusetts. Warren has never held public office before and the eye-popping $40 million she raised this election cycle evidently proved more than enough to unseat incumbent Senator Scott Brown. This was the most expensive Senate race of 2012 -- by a long shot.
Former Gov. Angus King, running as an independent, won the Senate contest Tuesday in Maine, NBC News projected, taking a seat that had been held by the Republicans. The loss further complicated the party's drive to take control of the Senate (Snip) Republican Ted Cruz defeated Democrat Paul Sadler to hold the open seat in Texas, succeeding retiring Republican Kay Bailey Hutchison, NBC News projected.

CNN’s Peter Hamby reported that Mitt Romney‘s internal polling showed President Obama leading in Ohio by five percentage points.Per Hamby’s post: The number represented a sharp final bump for Obama in Ohio, a race that had essentially been a tied race through much of the previous week, according to the campaign’s daily tracking. The polling, which also showed a tight race in Pennsylvania, explains why Romney officials decided to send their candidate on last-minute Election Day visits to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
The Obama and Romney campaigns may be gearing up for a very late night, with one Obama campaign adviser predicting that in Florida alone, "they'll be counting until 2 a.m." The Obama adviser said signs suggest the race is quite tight, though the campaign claimed to be "holding strong" in key battlegrounds like Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The adviser also said turnout among black voters in Virginia was better than expected, suggesting that could be a problem for Mitt Romney. Republican operatives in Virginia, though, predicted a razor-thin victory for their candidate in the state.
Washington - Early returns on Tuesday in what is anticipated to be a dead even presidential election contained no surprises, as CNN projected President Barack Obama will win his home state of Illinois and eight other races while Republican challenger Mitt Romney will win nine states. All races called so far went as expected after the roller-coaster ride of an election campaign that was buffeted by a superstorm and missteps on both sides. Obama and Romney ran dead even in final polls that hinted at a result rivaling some of the closest presidential elections in history, reflecting the deep political
A week after Hurricane Sandy slammed into the East Coast, a majority of voters said President Barack Obama’s response to the crisis wasn’t a factor in their vote, according to early exit polls. Fifty-five percent of those surveyed, per CBS News’ early exit polling released by radio station WKZO in Kalamazoo, Mich., said Obama’s handling of the storm was a minor factor in their vote or wasn’t a factor at all. Twenty-six percent named Sandy as an “important” factor, and 15 percent said it was the “most important” factor in their decision.
Mitt Romney is leading among independents in both Ohio and Virginia, early exit polls show. In Ohio, the former Massachusetts governor takes 56 percent of self-identified independents, compared with 40 percent for President Barack Obama. That’s a huge decrease for Obama from 2008, when the exit polls found him winning independents in Ohio by 12 points, 52 percent to 44 percent for John McCain. The numbers are similar but slightly tighter in Virginia: Romney takes 53 percent of independents there, according to ABC News exit polls, a 12-point lead over Obama. In 2008, Obama won independents in the state by
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
