Lawmakers insisting on justice for
Benghazi attack on consulate

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor

Key Republican lawmakers on Wednesday embraced the findings of the State Department’s internal inquiry into the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, even though its long-awaited report stopped short of probing questions of an Obama administration cover-up in the attack’s aftermath. The report by the Accountability Review Board noted that senior State Department officials ignored intelligence and security warnings that might have prevented the fatal onslaught on the diplomatic mission and prompted the removal of four department officials Wednesday.

Why didn´t they just make Benghazi a Gun-Free Zone, and ban assault weapons?

Obama and Holder want to ban them in the US while they hand them out everywhere else.

What exactly does "insist on justice" mean? Letting Hillary off the hook? Not mentioning Obama´s part? Not hearing testimony from the 30 survivors, whoever they may be?
No one fired, denounced, jailed? Congress at its finest.

"Justice", apparently, means arresting a suspect, then charging him through proper channels, and arranging for bail, an attorney, and a long, media-sponsored trial.

Who is the fourth person who resigned? Except for Boswell the other names have dribbled out slowly. First Lamb and now Maxwell.

"Ambassador" Patrick Kennedy should quite. He knew what was going on in Benghazi. He stuttered and mumbled, literally red-faced (but from anger), through the entire televised House Oversight Committee hearing in October where he and Charlene Lamb were on the hot seat. A pompous bureaucrat.

FTA:

Mr. Issa also said he is “deeply concerned that the unclassified report omits important information the public has a right to know,” including “details about the perpetrators of the attack in Libya, as well as the less-than-noble reasons contributing to State Department decisions to deny security resources.”

Translation of Issa: report doesn´t mention that the President with the help of the Sec of State was missile running to Syria and conducting an illegal unapproved war......that AlQaeda, his new friends, turned on him...and the reason there was no security nor any help came ...was because their illegal treasonous behavior needed to remain hidden regardless of lives lost...

Of more concern is the apparent FEAR the rest
of the politicians and the military are showing as they go along with this corruption and refuse to speak out against it...

Admiral Mullen appears to telegraph some
info and disgust "We had no forces ready nor would I expect we would have"...
Translation: These were illegal activities to be kept hidden and thus we wrote off US personal and our Seals...utter madness

I have an idea that even if the big shots, after sacrificing all the underlings, had to stand trial, the result would be: Holder assigns Hilary (or other big shot) with a battery of attorney´s--at taxpayer expense--to defend them. If all the lying, cover-ups, bribes, etc. didn´t work, a fine would be solemnly ordered by a paid-for (or threatened) justice. The fine would be paid for by federal money--acquired from we, the taxpayers. Yes, I think the entire system in our country has been polluted with corruption. The real perpetrators in this will skate.

Let´s face it, nothing will be done to the big fish. This is 2012 and our press is equal to Pravda. All they will cover for the rest of the year is Boehner´s "will he or won´t he" in the debt ceiling farce. Then they will shift to blaming Republicans for whatever happens either way.

Wait...wait...wait...
These State Dept pukes were the fools who denied proper security, hired unarmed muslins from the February 12th Martyr Brigade as security, pulled out he marine security, etc.
But these were all errors before the event.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR DOING NOTHING DURING THE ATTACK? Who viewed the attack real time via drone cam and decided not to send help? Who decided to let those Americans die?
That had to be Obama.

I am tired of these liars. The USA did not have a consulate in Libya. That is an out and out lie.
FTA: Key Republican lawmakers on Wednesday embraced the findings of the State Department’s internal inquiry into the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, even though its long-awaited report stopped short of probing questions of an Obama administration cover-up in the attack’s aftermath.

"There was no embassy or consulate in Benghazi. It was a covert CIA operations center.

Wait, why do people continue to call it a consulate? Why is it identified on Google maps as a consulate.

First, it continues to be called a consulate because this is part of the cover-up. The government is STILL lying to the American people. The media is assisting in the cover-up, and so are some in congress in both parties. For goodness sakes, anyone looking at Google maps on September 10, 2012 will never find the Benghazi location named a consulate. It’s a LIE!"...Doug Hagmann, Canada Free Press.

Stop lying to us press and government officials.

Two things come to mind on Benghazi. First, this administration is doing the same thing Clinton did over the two Africa U.S. Embassy bombings in the nineties, namely they are treating this as a law enforcement problem which it is not. It is a national security problem. Why should we bring the perpetrators back to America to face justice and try them under U.S. law! Drop ’em where they stand. Problem solved.

Second, about a month or so before the attack, a detachment of national guard from Colorado was pulled and returned home according to Fox News hour long special report including an interview with the commander of that detachment. Why?

Not all the truth has been wrung out of Benghazi yet!

Four State Department managers fall on the sword while their boss Hillary has a headache and gets a pass. We cannot hold the presumptive 2016 Democrat presidential candidate accountable, it would tarnish her stellar reputation. I agree with Bolton, Hillary is a liar and is faking her so called "concussion".

Oh ya I´m so freakin sure that the terrorists (who are ALL law abiding ctizens by the way) would have would have most definately laid down their weapons if only they had made it a weapons free zone.... (Sarcasm totally intended) If they had made it a weapon free zone than the only people that would have even had any weapons would have been the terrorists maybe our soldiers should have just got down on their knees willingly and told the terrorists to go ahead and kill them, that would have made it just as easy for the terrorists as making it a weapons free zone.

#18 nails it. As long as they continue referring to the CIA Operations Center in Benghazi as a Consulate, the truth cannot come out. Consulate is part of the cover lie.

Obama Handles Russia Like Republicans:
Overpromise, Under-Deliver, and Write Off
National Journal, by Ron Fournier    Original Article
Posted By: Drive- 4/21/2014 11:14:01 AM     Post Reply
President Obama came to office nursing dreams "of forging a new partnership" with a stubborn rival. When times got tough, he abandoned the relationship and adopted dusty zero-sum gain policies of his predecessors. To allies and rivals alike, he looks naïve, weak, and disconnected. This is the portrait presented Sunday by Peter Baker in his front-page New York Times story titled, "In Cold War Echo, Obama Strategy Writes Off Putin." What struck me about the piece is the unstated parallel between Obama´s handling of Russia and Republicans, and how in both cases the gap between promise and performance illustrates a fundamental

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

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

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O.

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.

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
