Scapegoating James Clapper
Won´t End Benghazi Scandal

Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:Emerson, 11/20/2012 11:23:53 PM

Cover-Up: Intel chief James Clapper taking blame for dishonest talking points won´t cauterize the Benghazi scandal. The country was still lied to about terrorists killing four Americans for the sake of Obama´s re-election. (Snip) a number of commentators quipped to Obama defenders who minimized its significance that, unlike in Libya on Sept. 11, "nobody died in Watergate." Watergate is an apt comparison in some ways. The whole underlying purpose of the 1972 attempted bugging of the Democratic National Committee headquarters was to get President Nixon re-elected.

Off topic. Long time posters are absent from this site. Are they in mourning over the election outcome, or what?

Good editorial. Not great. A-

So far Obama, his staff, and State seem to be escaping again.

Clapper is now on the hook. Who will be there next?

The trail from Clapper to the FBI and CIA must be followed. Who agreed to what alterations in the talking points? What reasons were given.

No one, besides those in Libya, has been fired, reprimanded, or suffered any consequences. And we still don´t even know who did what over a very few hours.

Petraeus is gone. But not because of Benghazi.

Yes, so wrong to scapegoat Mr. Clapper. One question. Mr. Clapper has a free will. He is choosing to do join the rest of the administration and lie to the American people.

Yes, actually it will end the scandal. Because Obama´s court eunuchs in the MSM get to decide what is a scandal and what isn´t, and (at least as much as His Majesty) they won the election.

Republicans keep hoping that getting Obama´s court eunuchs to cover something is the way to make people wake up about Him. It is not. It really, really is not.

"Clapper is the president´s man . For all practical purposes, he is White House staff, as much as the national security adviser. He attends Oval Office meetings and discerns the wishes of the president and senior staff."

If Clapper did this, he was ordered to. No way he would have conjured up this scenario about the video w/o the WH approval. More likely, he did it at their behest.

Possible reply to #1: "Off topic. Long time posters are absent from this site. Are they in mourning over the election outcome, or what?" ...It could be. The election was a body blow, and watching ideals die IS cause for mourning. However, I saw some of the oldies posting at the Thanksgiving Thread, so maybe their are getting their strength back.

As for Benghazi... I believe I heard Rep. Trey (?sp?) Goudy say that Benghazi is an "ongoing MURDER investigation of four men," and not some mere ´scandal´ of the week. We must NOT lose the language on this.

These men were murdered... and the Ambassador - a gay man - was tortured & murdered due in part to a hate crime. I want to know WHERE the Gay community is re: this HATE CRIME???

I fear the government media complex thinks they have Benghazi under control. Hope Gowdy is prepared to be ignored.
Re the posters of yore,Hazymac signed off after the election.

#1 ... Yes.

On election night, many long-time posters were more than disappointed and/or depressed ... they were distraught. It was a very emotional evening on the thread, and after the election was called for Obama, several posters announced they no longer had any *fight* left in them and would no longer care or follow the political scene. Several even shared the status of their extremely dire financial situations, and the only hope they had was on Romney winning and turning this country around. They proceeded to wish the rest of us well, bid their adieus, and then "sign off."

I miss them, too.

I don´t believe Clapper was the one responsible, but I have to admire his gall in first saying one thing and thereafter saying another with a straight face.

It goes without saying that, in any well run administration, things like this don´t go out without approval at the highest levels----at least those next to the President passing the word on to him if he is again "to busy" to attend to it himself or Obama actually doing the approval.. So, as ever, we are left with two choices re: Clapper under the bus: gross incompetence on the part of the Administration, or gross deceit. Either, given their record, is reasonable....at least they didn´t try to blame France via hacking.

Clapper cannot do anything without Obama´s concurrence.

describes stabbing spree suspect, 16, who

A shy teenager with no prior violent tendencies who went on a random, stabbing rampage at his high school on Wednesday told his arresting officers that he ´wanted to die´. Alex Hribal, 16, stalked through Franklin Regional High School in Murrysville near Pittsburgh early on Wednesday morning, stabbing victims in the torso and slashing their arms and faces before being tackled by assistant principal Sam King. The attacker was described by students as a small, quiet boy who largely kept to himself but was not an outcast and did not appear to have been bullied. There were no indications before the attack

U.S. childhood obesity rates have increased over the past 14 years, according to a study published on Monday, casting doubt on a recent analysis by government health researchers that found a sharp drop in preschool obesity rates over the past decade. The good news, announced in February by researchers at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), received widespread media coverage and prompted first lady Michelle Obama to say she was "thrilled at the progress we´ve made over the last few years in obesity rates among our youngest Americans.

Most religious movies feel as if they’re made by a church committee, but every now and then a wild-eyed prophet wanders in and rattles the theater with brimstone. Regardless of your feelings about either movie, Mel Gibson’s “The Passion of the Christ” qualifies and so does Martin Scorsese’s “The Last Temptation of Christ.” Now director Darren Aronofsky (“Black Swan,” “The Wrestler”) has ascended to the mountaintop and returned with the strangest, most visionary cinematic parable yet. “Noah” is equal parts ridiculous and magnificent, a showman’s folly and a madman’s epic. It elaborates on the Book of Genesis’s slender story of Noah

El Chapo, Most-Wanted Drug
Lord, Is Captured in Mexico

Mexico City — Just before 7 a.m. on Saturday, dozens of soldiers and police officers descended on a condominium tower in Mazatlán, Mexico, a beach resort known as much as a hangout for drug traffickers as for its seafood and surf. The forces were following yet another tip about the whereabouts of one of the world’s most wanted drug kingpins, Joaquín Guzmán Loera — known as El Chapo, which means “Shorty” — who had eluded such raids for 13 years since escaping from prison, by many accounts in a laundry cart. With an army of guards and lethally enforced loyalty, he reigned over a worldwide, multibillion-dollar drug empire

Former Rep. Mel Reynolds is expected to be freed and deported from Zimbabwe as early as Tuesday after pornography charges were dropped Friday and he pleaded guilty to a visa violation. Reynolds´ lawyer, Arthur Gurira, said his client remained in jail in the southern African country but could be released Tuesday or Wednesday after immigration authorities complete deportation paperwork. “The papers are being processed,” Gurira said. “Once that´s done, he´ll be free.” Asked if Reynolds would be bound for Chicago, the lawyer said: “I wouldn´t know.”

SOCHI, Russia — The official mascots for the Winter Olympics are a polar bear, a hare and a leopard. But walk around the complexes that will stage the Games here, with the opening ceremony Friday, and what seem more apt are a hand drill, a backhoe and a shovel. Much of Sochi is a work in progress, and parts of it look at least a dozen all-nighters away from completion. There are unfinished hotels, half-finished stores and a mall where the only shop that is open and thriving is a Cinnabon. Wander the premises over the course of a day

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

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.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively
