Graham seeks delay to
confirmation of Brennan until
Benghazi questions answered

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 1/7/2013 11:12:10 PM

A top Republican senator called Monday for a delay in the confirmation of President Obama´s pick for CIA director until more questions are answered on the deadly attack last year on a U.S. consulate in Libya. (Snip) "I have not forgotten about the Benghazi debacle and still have many questions about what transpired before, during and after the attack on our consulate," Graham said. "In that regard, I do not believe we should confirm anyone as director of the CIA until our questions are answered." Graham is specifically concerned about U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice´s talking points

Comments:
Is Graham doing this to fill the vacuum of leadership in the RINO House or to get more invites to the Sunday morning talk shows? Interesting, either way.

But Hillary´s done with her brain clot. That means Benghazi is over. None of the networks other than Fox will cover this any more.

Lindsey talks tough, but he has always caved in the past. We have no reason to think this time will be any different. Sure would be nice if he´d find a spine, though.

Graham is up for election in 2014 and Trey Gowdy looks very good.
Hilary, petrelus, Panetta, McDonough, Donilon must all testify under Oath on Benghazi before Hagel brennan and Kerry? are confirmed if at all.
Is there any connection between the sanitizing of Obamas passport file at State, lt. Harris unsolved murder and John Brennan?

It would be nice if Graham would stick to his guns on this issue. (No pun intended.)

susan rice influenced bill clinton not to kill or arrest bin laden...he didn´t...clinton already had blood on his hands for 24,000 americans killed in vietnam AFTER he organized an anti-american protest on foreign soil & then "visited" the enemy in the soviet union...now rice & clinton both have blood on their hands for the 3,000 americans murdered on 9/11...rice & hillary clinton did nothing while our ambassador was raped, tortured & murdered along with 3 other brave americans...all democrats are immoral liars...some are evil.

Senator Graham occasionally does something very good. He has been very firm on this position for several weeks. I think he will stand by his statement. We need all the information relating to the deaths of four Americans. I am a little surprised we haven´t heard anymore from any of their family members.

Inre: #10- Indeed.

I´m generally a law-and-order type, but Brennan gives me the creeps. I heard this morning we wiped out another eight "suspected militants" (not ´terrorists´) with a drone strike in Pakistan. Something tells me Mr. Brennan and Barry are a little too comfortable with the joystick.

Seriously, does anybody even bother to listen to Graham anymore? He needs to just go back to his primary role of being McCains´s sock puppet.,

Thanks to Pres George W. Bush agreeing to a special counsel/investigation, we know all the sordid and mundane details about the Valerie Plame "outing." Four dead Americans and well, Hillary has a new hat to wear.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day and even a blind squirrel can find a nut! Goober has stumbled onto something that will actually be helpful --- if his feckless Republican colleagues back him up. I´m very disappointed in many things Mr. Gramnesty has been involved with but it´s amazing how a re-election can focus the mind! I hope he hangs in there and earns some forgiveness for past sins.

Oh, boy (man/woman, blah-blah), how PO´ed am I!
News, all news, are utterly debilitating. Here comes huge tank, called obozo´s agenda, and all the conservatives have is a sling-shot with torn rubber. My fingers hurt repeating the same: we need conservative mainstream media! At all times the opposition knew they needed propaganda machine. This idea was perfected by hitler/lenin/stalin/mao/chavez. But American conservatives are refusing to acknowledge this FACT. That´s why we lost education, public opinion, and, subsequently, the power!

Oh, forget Susan Rice and her talking points and whoever shoved her out to the shows with them. Just tell us what happened at Benghazi and why four Americans are dead. THAT´s what they should be harping on non-stop.

See Lamecherry and Benghazigate...

"The three following quotes from British Intelligence and America Special Operations forces prove that Chris Stevens was sent in to become a hostage, so Barack Obama could send in SEALS again to become a chest thumper hero.

The Obama regime deliberately did not create a safe room. CIA has now been caught CYA lying several times from the smart bombs Obama provided these terrorists to the magical timeline of Benghazi.
When one places people into terrorist controlled areas, takes away all security, does not set up a safe room, one either is positioning for a mass murder or one is creating a hostage situation.
There can be no other reality than this, and as murder has not assisted Mr. Obama in he has run from the Benghazi crimes, it then as Sherlock Holmes in Arthur Conan Doyle taught, leaves only the one probability and that must be correct, in Barack Obama meant to have Chris Stevens taken hostage with the SEAL CIA team murdered for accent.

Only cameras were sent for the specific reason this blog stated for footage of this for the Obama election digitals to set all of this electioneering up.
Weapons and security would get in the way of the hostage taking. This had all been coordinated with Obama´s al Qaeda on the ground.

One former Special Op now employed by a private company in Benghazi said that even the safe room wasn´t properly set up. He said "the safe room is one of the first measures you take" and that he is "not sure how you can set a safe room without fire suppression and ventilation in case of fire." He also said, "Ambassador Stevens would likely be alive today if this simple and normal procedure was put into place."

"British intelligence sources said that unarmed drones routinely flew over Benghazi every night in flight patterns and that armed drones which fly over chemical sites, some a short flight from Benghazi, "were always said to be on call." American sources confirmed this and questioned "why was a drone armed only with a camera

Into this comes the Muslim nation of Turkey which has been the Obama conduit to funnel money and weapons into the Mideast fire zones Obama is creating to cash to Muslim Brotherhood Egypt to al Qaeda butchers in Syria now armed with American Stinger missiles.

Turkey has now been outed in this expanding Turkeygate as RUNNING THE OBAMA KIDNAPPING OF CHRIS STEVENS THAT Obama lost operational control over as he was out bid and can do nothing about it, but lie and pay bribes to try and cover up these crimes."

The Israel Money Laundering and Terror Financing Prohibition Authority (IMPA) has exploded in growth since its 2002 founding; but Israel has been criticized heavily for not keeping up with fighting these threats.

Photos Link Masked Men

Kiev, Ukraine - For two weeks, the mysteriously well-armed, professional gunmen known as “green men” have seized Ukrainian government sites in town after town, igniting a brush fire of separatist unrest across eastern Ukraine. Strenuous denials from the Kremlin have closely followed each accusation by Ukrainian officials that the world was witnessing a stealthy invasion by Russian forces. Now, photographs and descriptions from eastern Ukraine endorsed by the Obama administration on Sunday suggest that many of the green men are indeed Russian military and intelligence forces — equipped in the same fashion as Russian

An operation targeting al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula is under way in Abyan and Shabwa, Yemen, a high-level Yemeni government official who is being briefed on the strikes told CNN on Monday. The official said that the scale of the strikes against AQAP is "massive and unprecedented" and that at least 30 militants have been killed. The operation involved Yemeni commandos who are now "going after high-level AQAP targets," the official said. A day earlier, suspected drone strikes targeted al Qaeda fighters in Yemen for the second time in two days, killing "at least a dozen," the government official said. The predawn strikes targeted a

Tactical advantage: Russian military
shows off impressive new gear

Elite Russian troops are displaying a new arsenal of body armor, individual weapons, armor-piercing ammunition and collar radios — a menu of essential gear that gives them a big tactical advantage against a lesser-equipped Ukrainian army. If President Vladimir Putin orders an invasion, the new-generation body armor, in particular, would provide exceptional protection against small arms if Russian troops go street by street to capture Kiev and other cities. “What we saw and what was dangled in front of the West was a clear indication that Putin is on a roll,” retired U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Robert Scales said. “It just seems to me from watching

Biden arrives in Kiev on Monday afternoon local time. He will meet with members of Ukraine´s Rada parliament from different political parties and regions as well as representatives from non-governmental organizations during his two-day stay, the White House said in a statement.

Thirteen people were confirmed dead in a coal mine gas explosion in southwest China´s Yunnan Province early Monday, the local government said. The accident happened at around 12:30 a.m. in a pit of Hongtutian Coal Mine in Fuyuan County in the city of Qujing, the county government said in a press release. A total of 56 people were working in the pit, of whom 42 escaped without injuries and 14 were trapped, it said. As of 8 a.m., rescuers had retrieved 13 dead bodies and were searching all-out for the missing miner. The county government said Hongtutian is a private mine and is properly licensed for operation.

After Joseph Heller published his seminal war novel Catch-22 he adapted the book for the stage. He hoped it would go to Broadway - but more than 40 years on, his script has very rarely been performed. Now it is finally getting its UK premiere. (Snip) Yossarian´s nightmare: Stationed in Italy and afraid of being shot down, he wanted to be declared insane and sent home. But military rules said that fear of death was a rational response, so anyone who asked to be grounded could not possibly be truly crazy. And those who were insane would not be aware of the fact, and therefore would be unable to ask to be grounded.

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

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

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
