An ‘Appropriate’ fiasco
New York Post, by John Podhoretz

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 10/11/2012 5:27:58 AM

At yesterday’s incendiary, four-hour hearing in Washington, congressional Republicans ripped into two high-ranking State Department officials who struggled to explain away the administration’s utterly baffling behavior before and after the murder of four Americans in Benghazi on Sept. 11. The spectacle was agonizing. The officials — Charlene Lamb and Patrick Kennedy — basically said everything they’d done before the terror assault and everything the administration had said afterward was appropriate, “based on what was known at the time.” Lamb and Kennedy said they’d done the right thing as they sat next to two security experts

Comments:
It seems to me that Benghazi will be the final stake in Obama's reelection bid. How differently he might have been perceived by the country if immediate action had been taken during those hours of battle. The ambassador and others might not have been saved, but the ongoing dumb regard for Libya's feelings doomed any idea that Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton can move quickly and decisively in an emergency.

John Podhoretz knocks it out of the ball park. Excellent summation of the incompetent handling of a very sad chapter. Should be a Must Read. Maybe it will help some people sitting on the fence.
FTA: Obama and his people went for the YouTube play. In so doing, they not only deceived the American people and inappropriately deferred blame, they inflicted on themselves an entirely unnecessary wound.

FTA "It’s unclear why these career civil servants, who are not beholden to the president for their employment, felt it necessary to defend an Obama appointee’s shockingly misleading and now entirely discredited talking points"

No, it's very clear. The State Dept is to the left of even the Obammies.

IMHO, there is more to this video angle than has been dredged up so far. Something evil is going on, besides the "self-evident" 9/11 anniversary terror attacks.

The State Department was following the Obama book for the election. Obama wants to run as the bin Laden killer and the one that destroyed al-Qaeda with the deaths in Benghazi there goes his foreign policy chops. The coverup was pure politics.

Here we have the umpteenth "well, can you imagine that?" moment. Yes, I can imagine. It would be inexplicable if we had a patriot in the White House. We don't. We need to look at the cumulative effect of what Obama's policies (strangely they are policies) have wrought. I'm afraid that what we fear Obama is doing to the Middle East is true. It is also no accident.

Patrick Kennedy should be made to resign along with Lamb. She heard that going on for 6 hours and STILL she lied and took the Obama message to the nation along with Hillary and Rice and others..... I also was happy when Issa told the 2 whistle blowers..I hate that label... if they had any problem with their careers to come back..they will be protected...
They were brave to to step up..
I hope Bite-me tries to explain this away tonight...Ryan will nail him..
I too felt like crying thinking about the fear they must have felt in those 6 hours with the animals coming at them...

This same State Department and government sent the USS Cole into Aden Harbor in Yemen because it was striving for normal relations with terrorists. After the attack and deaths President Clinton thought this was a crime and sent in the FBI?

So, October 11th, and twelve years after the 17 Cole sailors were killed, the local in charge of security in our embassy there is murdered by the same Islamic hatred.

The hearing yesterday proved again that you can't have a successful foreign policy by lying, wishing and hoping.

Considering his favorite Uncle is a member of an Al Qaida affiliated organization, and that he appears to wear a ring that is inscribed with the Shahada, the Islamic call to faith, his behavior is understandable if he is an Islamic Agent.

After we get rid of this bum, we'll have to start the War on Terror all over again. Every gain Bush and our courageous volunteer Armed Forces made has been negated.

And yes I do read WND. Try it. The stories today are quite enlightening.

Interesting that everyone has stopped asking why the Ambassador was there with the two former Seals...and no protection. Wasn't it something to do with the weapons we gave the rebels/brotherhood? People were starting to question that until the State Dept. admitted they lied about the video. This Administration is getting very good with their "Ewww, something shiny!" distractions.

Trey Gowdy was good, #17. He's been smoking mad over this from the start. The better moment for me was when the blond congresswoman from Fla went after Charlene Lamb posing yes/no questions and demanding answers. The congresswoman should been given time to go after that slippery weasel Kennedy.

The few Dims that did show up were only interested in trying to make this whole inquiry a political ploy of the Republicans to cast a bad light on the administration... right before the election!! As if, the president and SOS werent playing politics in the whole frikkin mess to begin with. Makes my head want to explode. People are dead. I hope the family members are outraged and come out screaming. The MSM will not be able to hide it.

We have the head of the State Dept whose incompetence got 4 Americans killed, an Atty Gen who is in contempt of Congress, a Treasury Secretary who didn`t pay his taxes, Ambassador Susan Rice who lied about Benghazi on a national television show, a Labor Sec who fudged the unemployment number, a First Lady who meddles in our schools, restaurants and grocery stores, a WH Press Secretary who lies daily and a Vice President who is crazy, all lead by Barack Obama who accepts no blame for all the mayhem going on in his regime.

They need to keep asking who told them that the video was the reason for this. Who put that story out there and why. Lamb watched in real time and still went with the video story. These are the keepers of America's security. Sad times for America when the top security people lie and the media won't report it because it might harm the very person who is setting up the lies. It is just stunning to me that this is not the headline on every newspaper and TV newscast.

Libyan authority said it was a terrorist attack, other other foreign sources knew it was a terrorist attack even right after the event. So why did President Obama and his administration call it a riot cause by a video? Even after the event and the evidence showed it was a terrorist attack, they continue to call it a riot. Obama on TV and at the United Nation refered to the attack as a reaction to the video. I guess Obama was to busy campaigning to attend any national security meeting. Oh yes, bin Laden is dead and Al Qaeda is no more! WRONG! Americans lost their lives because campaigning is more important than national security

The protected government workers trash all running about in the marble hallways and endless rooms of non productive tinkerers with our live. A town gathered around the big printing press where they can all take a shot at unearned fake paper money on a daily basis. Except for the black slums right there in their midst, the money stealing droids Beltway have no real estate crisis. Easy come easy go. And knowing that the Diane Sawyer Protection Racket is there for them 24/7, there is nothing they cannot get away with. Even these hearings, where a few of the "fall buys" take a temporary beating, will go nowhere. Nobody will be punished for the comitting of this massive covered up crime, and within a few weeks, the Diane Sawyers will have already looked the other way and the RepubDemcrats will continue to cover each other's asses 24/7. It'll all just disappear. After all, we musn't embarass the kings and queens of the Old Media either. The good news is that New Media will continue on and it is growing and cutting into Diane's dirty
territory, step by Drudge Breitbart Lucianne step.

I watched this agonizing spectacle yesterday. Why does Lamb still have a job that we the tax payers are paying with? The worst offenders in this were the democrats, Cummings and Lynch, who were trying to foist the entire debacle on the republicans. I hope Ryan and Romney will use this as a cudgel to pummel the foreign policy of this administration in the next debate. Fat lot of help Biden's "so-called foreign policy experience" has done to prevent the preventable deaths of 4 Americans!! Let NOT the democRATS not open their gobs about "lack of experience" anymore.

Like most everyone here, i watched the c-span spectacle and i vascillated between rage and tears.

Charlene Lamb said they watched the events in "real time." And yet, she would not nor would Kennedy admit the plain fact: this was terrorism.

When questioned point blank about the nature of the attack, they could not and would not say the words. It was shocking and horrifying to watch... in real time.

Now think back to Hillary's various performances: that languid, slow, painfully articulated rationalization.

Years ago, when Clinton was finishing up his second term, it became clear that the media had discovered that they could be much more active "players" in politics. I remember telling Hubby that we'd see more of this and more extensively and that this would be the real danger for our Republic.

We now have about half of the citizenry who DO NOT HAVE A CLUE. I have an intelligent cousin, but she is completely ignorant because she relies on the so-called MSM.

This is why Ryan and Romney absolutely must bring this up, attack the "video" meme, tell the truth, expose the quislings.

Will bloviator Biden bring up BO's foreign policy "successes"?

All is utterly outrageous. We are, as we here have said since 2008, we are in great peril.

The State department has been a thorn in America's side for a long time. The combination of the Obama gang and the State department is almost more than the republic can bear. It was embarrassing to watch these government officials do their best to lay down a protective smokescreen for the administration. One wonders who they think they are working for and what their priorities are.

I did not find the testimony "baffling". It appeared to me that the two bureaucrats were in cover-up mode, particularly Mr Kennedy, a piece of scum. How can a person who has no memory of anything be in a high ranking position. No, he was just lying, and under oath. At least Ms Lamb showed emotion, whether because she was under stress, or she knows the two of them are lying, or she really feels empsthy for the dead men and their families, or a combination. It apeared to me that Mr Issa was WAY too kind to them.
At least some of the Congresspeople let loose. We need Mrs Clinton to testify under oath, but you watch Obama insulate her.

I do not entirely agree with the author. If the President had admitted it was a terrorist attack, that would have undermined his whole
tact, having ridden the killing of OSB to state that the terrorist organizations were decimated and incapable of inflicting harm on the U.S. His own line of B.S. would have gone into the cesspool. Either way, his talking points were proven false.

55 you may want to read General Vallele's just released statement....

Obama would not give permission for four months to get Osama when they knew where he was...Thus Panetta, Gates, Clinton went ahead without telling him...or Brennan...And informed Obama on the Golf course.

In light of the story that me forth yesterday from Corsi, with pics of Obama's ring, and a Duke professor translation of the inscription...that reads "there is no god but Allah"....

Perhaps many should rethink Obama's national security claims....He s a fraud and a lar.

Here´s a lesson in online security: Passwords are important. They keep your information safe. Crucially, they also prevent other people from impersonating you. Unfortunately, one of The Switch´s readers learned that the hard way. On a story explaining how the Heartbleed bug could slow down the Internet, a commenter scoffed at the "Heartbleed thingamajig," arguing that the Internet´s handwringing over security was mostly overwrought: I couldn´t give a flying fig about the Heartbleed thingamajig. Two years already the thing has been running loose ... and not a word of someone crying over its damage. Say ... does anyone really know its origin?

Proponents of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) insist that the law will extend health insurance to millions, expand access to health care, and improve Americans’ overall health. But, as the New York Times recently reported, at least 20 percent of the new enrollees have not paid their premiums. They therefore do not really have insurance. But even for those enrollees paying premiums, having health insurance is not the same thing as getting good health care, or any health care. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many Americans obtain insurance under the ACA. Most will have difficulty finding a physician. Many Americans

INDIANAPOLIS | A Portage airman was among the Hoosier troops stationed in Germany that Gov. Mike Pence met Monday on the first stop of his jobs mission to Indiana´s largest European trading partner. Lt. Benjamin DeLaCruz, a 2007 Portage High School graduate, helped show the Republican governor and first lady Karen Pence around the sprawling Ramstein Air Base and participated in a discussion with the governor about the role of U.S. forces in Europe. "On behalf of the men and women serving overseas, I would like to thank Gov. Pence for visiting Ramstein today," DeLaCruz said in a statement released by the

Cults In Our Midst: Patty Hearst

Exactly forty years ago Patricia Hearst stunned the nation when she turned up as a bank robber, a mere two months after she was kidnapped by the violent cult that called itself “The Symbionese Liberation Army.” Her astonishing transformation was documented by bank cameras on April 15, 1974. There she was — granddaughter of William Randolph “Citizen Kane” Hearst — wielding a sawed-off assault rifle and terrorizing people in a bank. She had recently announced in a taped SLA communique that she had voluntarily joined the SLA in its fight against the “fascist” United States. She took the nom de

Chevron, Dole cases expose lawyer corruption

A few years ago, the corruption convictions of several prominent plaintiffs´ lawyers put a spotlight on dishonesty in American civil courts. Now the sleaze has burst back into the news with cases involving Chevron and Dole Food Co., this time with an international twist. Last month, a federal court in Manhattan found that a U.S. plaintiffs´ lawyer had masterminded a multibillion dollar fraud and extortion scheme against Chevron in Ecuador. Three days later, a California appellate court affirmed the dismissal of a lawsuit against Dole as a "fraud on the court" perpetrated by U.S. and Nicaraguan plaintiffs´ lawyers. These rulings are welcome

Not all of the Pulitzers were

NFL players have Most Valuable Player awards. Major League Baseball players strive for Cy Youngs and Gold Gloves. For journalists, it´s the Pulitzer. Every year, when Pulitzers are announced, most of them are awarded to big corporate media outlets with huge staffs and budgets devoted specifically to the contest. But not always. On Monday, David Philipps, an investigative reporter for the Colorado Springs Gazette, claimed a Pulitzer for his three-day series, Other Than Honorable. Philipps exposed the shameful treatment of members of the U.S. military, many of them wounded combat veterans, in the drawdown of American military forces. Too often,

Joker sob story is just sickening

Another sob story in the left-wing media about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev? Yesterday it was the turn of The New York Times, under the headline, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Isolation.” Needless to say, the ACLU is up in arms. Boo-hoo-hoo. And if he were in general population, rest assured the headline would have been, “Marathon Bombing Suspect Waits in Fear of his Life.” Needless to say, the ACLU would be up in arms. This one was perfectly timed — on the first anniversary of the Joker placing one of his kettle bombs in front of little Martin Richard, who had moments

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
