‘Obama No More Responsible
for Benghazi Than Bush Was

Cybercast News Service, by Patrick Burke

Urging his fellow lawmakers not to let Thursday’s hearing on Benghazi to “devolve into a political spectacle,” Rep. Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) said President Obama isn’t responsible for the terror attack on the U.S. consulate and CIA annex. “You know Barack Obama was no more responsible for what happened in Benghazi than George Bush was for September 11th or than Ronald Reagan was with the blowing up of the U.S. Marines in Beirut.” Engel, a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee noted that the election is over -- and

Comments:
No! Please make it stop! You absolutely knew the Democrats would turn this into a political hack job and a three ring circus. I pray that Petraeus does the right thing and tells the truth to save this country and show some shred of dignity he may have left.

W did not implement a conspiracy to coverup what actually happened and send them all out to lie to the people. W never personally destroyed anyone, deservedly or otherwise.

If he was not resonsible, why did he spend so much time covering it up?

Well, Israeli Intelligence and Egyptian Military Intellgence both notified the US that something was in the works in Libya for 9-11.

The Brits moved their people. State and TOTUS did nothing.

Respondsibility is in Obama´s lap.

Clintonite Jamie Gorelick, who built the firewall between the CIA and FBI, and who subsequently BTW became filthy rich off insider info from Fannie/Freddie, was in great part reponsible for 9/11.

I don´t recall people in the WTC asking for increased security from airliners, before they crashed. President Bush responded immediately after the attack by grounding all aircraft and giving the order to shoot down any that would not land.

Also, President Bush did not go off to a fund raiser and campaign event the next morning!

Only a warped mind would try to equate the two events.

So that makes Clinton responsible for 9-11. He gave us the Cole and before that Kenya and Tanzania..Now you have the rest of the story..Clinton the wasted presidency..he was given the peace dividend ( the Wall was taken down, the cold war over, Saddem was kicked out of Kiawait and put in a box that he then manipulated the oil for food and violated no fly zone shooting at US and British Air planes etc) and he gave us 9/11, Enron the Tech bubble, Healthsouth, Tyco and the recession to name a few..Oh yea how about the seeds of the subprime mortgages..and this guy is idiolized, Really!

No, pinhead, he´s not responsible for the attack. He´s responsible for abandoning 30 people to die because it was politically inconvenient to save them. That is the nature of the human scum you have chosen as a leader.

Here is agreat big free tip for mr. Engle, start listening to RT (Russian international news). They are very upset at someone, someone who is running military grade weapons to the Syrian rebels. The Russians are are being very vocal in the UN about the criminal nature of this someone, and the Chinese are backing the Russians. The Libyan president is falling all over himself telling any press he can find that Libyans had nothing to do with this hit on Stevens. The Persians are looking a lot like cats with a mouth full of feathers.

You can´t serve two masters. The kgb owned your mother, grandparents and your mentor, but you have to pay your student loans to Saudi princes who dream of an Islamic superpower. Do you suppose someone got tired of that flexibility excuse? How´s that for a teachable moment.

“Responsibility is a unique idea. It can only reside and inhere in a single individual. You may share it with others, but your portion is not diminished. You may delegate it, but it is still with you. You may disclaim it, but you cannot divest yourself of it. Even if you do not recognize it or recognize its presence, you cannot escape it. If responsibility is rightfully ours, no evasion or ignorance, or passing the blame can shift the burden on someone else.”
Vice Admiral Hyman G. Rickover 15 June 1961

My Benghazi assumption: Obama sanctioned a kidnapping of the Ambassador, so he could trade the blind sheik for him... which is why all were told to stand down. KGBers got wind of it & used the opportunity to shut down the arms operation at the annex, where Libyan arms were being smuggled to Egyptian radicals. Period. Now those arms are showing up in Hamas´ hands.

The role of some of the Democrats is to make sure nothing comes of the investigation on Benghazi. There are some Democrats that want the truth, no matter what.

Israeli Intelligence and Egyptian Military Intellgence both notified the US that something was in the works in Libya for 9-11. Libya is a relatively small country and Americans at the time were in a limited number of locations.

In 2001, being told al-Qaeda was planning something big told us nothing. Somehow Bush was supposed to know what that meant and guard against it. Eliot Engel knows that. He is merely another Obama obstructionist.

The FBI is probing past legal work done by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, according to a report her Republican opponent’s campaign calls a “bombshell.” The Dallas Morning News reported Friday that documents “related to Sen. Wendy Davis’ work as a lawyer for the North Texas Tollway Authority are part of an FBI inquiry of the agency.” The news outlet said it’s unclear how much this investigation revolves around Davis, the Democratic nominee for governor. “It’s not clear whether Davis’ work for the tollway authority is a focus of the FBI or only part of the material collected in connection

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check. It has cosied up to governments around the world so effectively that its chairman,

Steve Lynch is a Democratic Rep. from Massachusetts who doesn’t hesitate to buck the party line from a centrist point of view, and to speak openly about problems in the party and with party positions. Lynch ran for Senate to fill John Kerry’s seat, but lost in the primary to now-Senator Ed Markey. Lynch recently was interviewed by The Boston Herald about upcoming Obamacare problems and how devastating they will be for Democrats. That runs contrary to cut current news cycle Democratic spin that (allegedly) meeting sign up goals means electoral problems related to Obamacare are over. U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch, the

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote. As vice president, Biden has been a loyal supporter of the Obama administration’s

Wayne Crews of the Competitive Enterprise Institute and Alexis de Tocqueville, author of the classic Democracy in America, were born in different times and places. But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs. It is always worthwhile to revisit de Tocqueville’s description of what he called the

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.

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

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

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

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

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.

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
