All In, Benghazi edition

A reader points out that Paula Broadwell was the honored keynote speaker at a University of Denver event last month. The speech is obviously of interest in light of the revelation of her involvement with General Petraeus, whom she discusses in her speech. One of the questions following her speech alludes to her interest in becoming the National Security Advisor. At about 35:00, Broadwell herself specifically discusses the terrorist attack in Benghazi and General Petraeus’s response. She claims there were “militia prisoners” at the annex whose presence might have precipitated the attack. If true, this appears to raise the question

Now this is interesting. Petraeus needs to testify.

Possibly what precipitated the attack was that the Islamists knew that General P. was getting more women than they were!

Perhaps this speech is why the administration brought out the affair. She appears to include information pointing to poor judgement at best, possibly crimes against the administration. The outing of Petraeus and Broadwell is certainly punishment for telling the facts. What an amazing find! As she indicated, now Petraeus is free to reveal the truth.

I always wondered why Petraeus was so quiet during the whole 6 weeks while his agency was being attacked and blamed.You had a CIA office right there,it only makes sense he would know what was going on there.

The real disgrace is all this coming out to help Obama hide a terrible scandal in which 4 Americans died.

It is common knowledge and my personal experience that when Jihadi prisoners are taken.....the camp where they are being held is very often rocketed immediately in an attempt to kill the prisoners before they talk.

The Jihadis think we have special bad magic that will make you talk.

....and they are right.

Wow! Why wasn´t this reported at the time? It´s becoming obvious that there was a cover-up and that the CIA was involved. But the video story was just so obviously bogus that whoever decided to go with that should have known it wouldn´t hold up to scrutiny. CIA involvement or not, when our ambassador is murdered in a terrorist attack, we need the truth.

But but but really, it could have been the video. After all, initial reports were that the creator of the video was Israeli.

Just fit perfectly with the O hatred of the jooossss.

She certainly was spilling a lot of beans of her own even as she fretted over loss of sources and methods. She was rolling out the intel, blabbing away, unable to keep her mouth shut. And Petraeus stupidly told her! And why did she do it? Why, to be a star, to bask in the spotlight as someone with insider knowledge unlike anyone else´s. Her own vanity, actually.

Lucky America. Yeah, I think she spilled enough to justify the calling of Petraeus to testify. He was certainly happy to tell her - now he can tell the rest of us.

I want all of you fellow l dotters to step back and look at the big picture.
Has there ever been a more messed up presidential administration, ever? Nixon´s administration was tame, in comparison to President Zero and his band of merry men.

When things start to unravel in an organization, it is difficult to predict how bad things really are. But I have this uneasy feeling that we are just seeing the beginning of the incompetence in D.C.

Zippy is getting a tad too much of a break on all this. He knew what was going on over there when it was happening, and how to make it pay off for him.

She knows too much and talks too much. She is the one who ought to be put in jail, not the idiot who made the video. I thought Petraeus was a smart man. Oh, silly me, he is just like most men who fall for a pretty face and is willing to sleep her way to the top.

I was appalled at what she said in Denver - she implied that she was speaking for Petraeus, who could not because of his position - but as it turns out its being reported now could force his testimony.

Sometimes it takes a while for the chess game to play out...

Are we gullibly sucking up something that reeks of a White House propaganda production?

Reportedly, in late October an FBI whistleblower informed House majority leader Eric Cantor (R) about the affair. Cantor had learned of the whistleblower from a Republican House Rep. Which begs the question: When did Obama know?

Broadwell was CIA Director Petraeus’s biographer and perhaps confidante, and was herself a former intel officer. That means she should have known better than to spill intel.

And that makes me wonder WHO told Broadwell what to say . . . which included absolving Obama and Clinton of having blamed the Muslim video:

(From the article)

“If you remember at the time, the Muslim video, the Mohammed video that came out, the demonstrations that were going on in Cairo, there were demonstrations in 22 other countries around the world, tens of thousands of people, and our government was very concerned that this was going to become a nightmare for us,” she said.

“So you can understand if you put yourselves in his shoes or Secretary Clinton’s shoes or the President’s shoes, that we thought it was tied somehow to the demonstrations in Cairo. . . .”

The date Broadwell speechified about ‘Benghazi-and-the-Video’ was October 26 — the approximate date Eric Cantor was told about the Petraeus-Broadwell liaison. At that time, the Campaigner-in-Chief was under heavy fire for blaming that video and for his blackout of information, his refusal to answer questions about the “stand down” command(s).

This lady is not your average stay at home mom. While being her own PR person she was obviously laying out some information that has not otherwise been reported to the public in her speech, was that information classified or restricted, and if so did her audience have a need to know? She certainly is as close to General Petraeus as one can be!

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble? Is your job in trouble? “I get it,” says Gregory, the face of the longest-running TV program in American history (founded: 1947). “Do I want to be number one in the ratings? Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs
Washington Post, by Ylan Q. Mui    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/18/2014 10:37:47 PM     Post Reply
For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

Social Security stops trying

Washington Post, by Marc Fisher    Original Article

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Despite promises to the contrary, it appears that State Senator Wendy Davis (D-Fort Worth) voted on bills that affect her clients and favorably impact the bottom line of her law firm. “I have never done anything in a way that represents a conflict in my voting and something that would benefit me personally,” she said in an interview, but state records seem to tell a different story. The Dallas Morning News´ Senior Political Writer Wayne Slater (DMN) reported that Davis supported legislation governing a toll road project.

Democrats Lose Two More Special
Elections They Didn’t Expect To

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan
