A scathing Senate committee report on the Benghazi terrorist attack faults the State Department for failing to adequately respond to mounting security threats in the lead-up to the assault. The report says the facility was woefully under-protected at a time when the region, according to a top department official, was "flashing red" -- yet security was not improved, and nobody recommended the compound be shut down.The report, produced by the Senate homeland security committee and obtained by Fox News, follows the release of a State Department-commissioned review earlier in the month. Both are highly critical of the department.
"When we mop up and sanitize this investigation it will all be over and you little people, in fly over country, can go about your business. We have this under control." (This is what´s really going on.)
Now will the stupid dims, including the foul prez realize that the clintoons are not capable of anything relating to protecting our citizens and the USA. I don´t buy the hag being ill, she is probably hiding out and thinks we will forget her criminal behavior regarding the Benghazi mess. I do not feel the slightest bit of sympathy with her problems, she earned them all.
She´s a stumbling drunk and probably hit herself in the head with a glass of vodka while trying to find her mouth. Thus she knocked herself out and "fainted" hitting the floor. An inquiry has yet to determine whether the blow with the glass or hitting the floor resulted in the concussion.
Blaming the "State Department" without mentioning a single name is like saying "the fork made me fat" or "the White House is to blame". Exactly what part of "the State Department" was to blame? A desk? A table? The water cooler?
Names. Who are the persons responsible for "the State Department"? Do they actually believe that blaming an inanimate object or agency without mentioning a responsible person will fly? Are we all supposed to guess?
Clearly, this Administration doesn´t want blame of any kind attached to any person within it so they blame an amorphous thing -- "the State Department" -- and hope we´ll all just fuggedaboutit.
When will the epa file THEIR report? If the intention is to just bury us in made up facts for a report(s) that attacks a bureaucracy with no named individuals, does this mean they (dems)are employing the "a lie told repeatedly will be believed" strategy? If so, we should anticipate a plethora of reports from different agencies "explaining" what happened.
What a useless report. we still don´t know how involved Obama was. When he was actually notified, what his orders were, where he was. Glaringly absent were the number of Americans at the Mission and Annex; when they were moved, how many were wounded, where they are now, and if they were ever interviewed. We don´t know if Clinton was told months earlier about the lack of security. She had to have known and made the decision not to increase protection. It was above everyone else´s pay grade. It was a political decision not to protect our people. We don´t know who sent Rice out with talking points to mislead the public-but we can guess. We don´t know who´s bloody hand print it was on the Mission wall. someone was seriously wounded and still alive. Does not appear it belonged to those who died. I don´t trust my government anymore to get the truth.
Isn´t it interesting that George W, Bush was responsible for every little thing that happened during his administration but Obama is responsible for nothing.
Obama encouraged the atmosphere that put our people in danger and Hillary did nothing to protect them from the chaos that Obama condoned. They both need to go, but people like Obama and Hillary never pay the price for their incompetence. No blame will ever be laid at their feet because there is no courage or honor in Washinton DC.
The Libyan emabassy for the US was in Tripoli. Benghazi is 300 miles east of Tripoli. Edwards was on a gun running mission for Obama. The fact that the press continues to publish basic lies about the facts and Congress allows this to continue unchallanged means they are all complicit.
Who gave to order to "stand down". That person is responsible for the deaths of the 4 men. Also, where are the 30 survivors? Why hasn´t at least one come out to thank the Seal´s family for his bravery? This is going to swept under the carpet. Think if this was a Republican President. The press would be all over this - how long did the ridiculous press go on about the spelling of potato and no one died. Is it a wonder why normal people chuckle about the press.
President 0bama says that he issued an order to do every thing possible to protect our people,. Has anyone seen a copy of the order, or is it lost in a Las Vegas Casino? Who decided to ignore the order. We cannot allow the democrat senators to whitewash this issue.
The only person with the authority to issue a "stand down" order in a situation like Benghazi, is 0bama. It was an order given to our military. Who is the CIC? Would any general have given that order without approval from 0bama? He never gave an order to do everything possible to help those people who were under attack. If he gave any order to help anyone, it was the stand down order to help his Muslim bro´s.
I don´t know where the answer is to all of this convoluted mess. I do know that the right questions aren´t being asked. We do know that Obama was the one that ordered the stand down because he is the only person that can do that. Pretending he isn´t seems to be the way he deals with the deaths of 4 American citizens. Same with Hillary. She knows! She doesn´t want to testify.
Apparently Benghazi was not a consulate. It didn´t deserve protection and that may be the reason none was provided. However it appears that Chris Stevens thought he deserved a lot more protection than he was getting. Was it a CIA gig? It seems to have been. Were they rounding up USA arms and selling them to Syria? That is the real question. How did those arms get to Libya in the first place. We were only involved as a NATO supporter. So many questions. 0 answers. I think we need them because we are paying for our President´s lawlessness and frankly I am getting tired of it. I can´t afford it anymore.
Susan Patton, the Princeton alumna who became famous for her letter urging Ivy League women to use their college years to find a mate, has been denounced as a traitor to feminism, to coeducation, to the university ideal. But really she’s something much more interesting: a traitor to her class. Her betrayal consists of being gauche enough to acknowledge publicly a truth that everyone who’s come up through Ivy League culture knows intuitively —
A New York hedge fund manager allegedly swindles $12 million from a prominent Baltimore family. An Indiana couple is accused of bilking hundreds of customers by charging for free trials of cosmetic products. A financial manager in Texas promises 23-percent returns but absconds with $33.5 million of his investors’ money in a classic Ponzi scheme.All three cases have one thing in common: money that ended up in offshore accounts and trusts set up in tax havens around the world.
Former News Corp president Peter Chernin has bid around $500 million for Hulu, the online video streaming service he helped create in 2007, according to two sources with knowledge of Hulu´s sale process. The website, jointly controlled by News Corp and Walt Disney Co, reached out to potential buyers in March after initially contemplating a deal in which one would buy out the other. It is not clear whether that transaction is still being contemplated.
After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.
The Obama administration appeared eager Thursday to downplay the North Korean military’s latest threat that it has the final authority to carry out “cutting-edge, smaller, lighter and diversified” nuclear strikes on the United States.“This is just the latest in a long line of aggressive statements,” (Snip)the recent tension between Washington and Pyongyang “does not need to get hotter.”The remarks were the first public reaction from the Obama administration since Wednesday’s claim by the North Korean military that the “moment of explosion is approaching fast” with the possibility of war breaking out “today or tomorrow.”
President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say? Irin Carmon does a great job in Salon in laying out the bounds of propriety for when it´s appropriate to talk about a woman´s looks as a general matter. But I´ve long felt we lack a solid theoretical underpinning for easily discussing these issues, and why precisely it is that
Political scientist Charles Murray has never backed away from controversy, but usually his opponents have been liberals. Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
