Graham on Brennan, Hagel:
‘No confirmation without information’

The Hill, by Meghashyam Mali

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 2/10/2013 12:52:17 PM

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) on Sunday threatened to hold President Obama’s nominees to head the CIA and Defense department unless the administration provides him with more answers on the response to the Benghazi Consulate attack. “I don’t think we should allow [John] Brennan to go forward for the CIA directorship, [former Sen. Chuck] Hagel [R-Neb.] to be confirmed secretary of Defense until the White House gives us an accounting,” said Graham on CBS’s “Face the Nation.” “Did the White House ever pick up the phone and call anyone in the Libyan government to help these folks?”

Graham is turning into a bulldog. Maybe Hagel can be stopped after all.

I may have misunderstood Panetta and Dempsey, as unlikely as that might be, but I thought that each of them said that no one asked them for military support, prior or during the attack.
This article makes it sound that they were only talking about the time leading up to the attack. In addition, the special Utah national guard security unit, according to their commander, offered to stay longer in libya, but obese charlene lamb, state department assistant secretary for security at State, said she declined the offer, after consulting with ´senior officials´ at State - instead, she wanted to hire and train more locals in benghazi for security positions.
It is, however, becoming more and more clear that in this kenyan klown´s administration, no one seems to be in charge of anything.

OK, Lady Lindsey - - let´s see what kind of guts you have.

Demand - - yes DEMAND - - two things: [1] A minute-by-minute accounting where Zippy was and what he was doing on Sept 11 & 12; [2] The names and contact info for all Benghazi survivors so that Congress can question them in detail.

Anything short of both of those demands will confirm what most of us already think of you - - that you´re a typical, gutless Pubbie wuss.

Why was the "AFRICOM" Commander fired? When was he fired? Who told Susan Rice to go out and lie about the terrorist attack? Why was the CENTCOM Commander fired? When was he fired? Where there ANY air assets within two hours flying time of Benghazi? I´m STILL waiting for those questions to be asked/answered....

That lie about being 13 hours away from being able to help these people was pathetic.

And it took us 24 days to secure the area because...gee wizz, uhhh, nobody asked us to.

Never sent any help cuz it was never requested ???

The ´people on the ground´ were in charge ?

They were begging for help.

Thank you, Senator Graham. Words are important. Not "I don´t think we should allow..." to "I will stand and refuse to allow..." Big difference.

American citizens on America sovereign soil were being murdered by heavily armed terrorists, and the president and CIC went to bed. The immediate superior of the diplomatic personnel was never heard from at all throughout the entire attack. While those personnel were placing frantic calls for help, orders were given to stand down. The defense department was never called in.

If this isn´t the place for a select committee, there is none.

Almost as grotesque as the administration´s dereliction, is the MSM´s dereliction in its collective yawn.

1. Re the article and the Republicans.

Here we go again. a. Talk tough. Well, "tough." Can´t rub the wrong way against all that "collegiality," which is of course far more important than the Republic. b. Remember that Republicans in leadership positions have all been donors in the CDC´s experimental spine-transplant program. c. The Left gets what it wants.

2. Re Benghazi. Never forget, the bigger and more important issue [yes, Benghazi is indeed a big deal, but] is that Obama and the State Department made sure all our diplomatic sites throughout the Islamic nations had no American security, but "relied on" locally-provided "security forces" for "protection." All so those warm, wonderful Muslim gov´ts would see how warmandfuzzy [yeah, one word] us Americans really, really are. And l-o-o-v-v-e us, ever-grateful to Barack.

WND reporting FBI claims Brennan is a Muslim

Glenn Beck´s interesting assertion that Panetta and Dempsey were doing a quick two step on Thursday...
......Oddly throwing the president under the bus...,making it all but appear to be a dereliction of duty some say ....in not being available as our people were slaughtered at Benghazi...and then .....Panetta happened to comment that he, Hillary and Dempsey wanted to arm the rebel forces for Syria......BUT the president said no....Panetta however didn´t mention the rebel forces are AlQaeda

Now that the arms from Libya are showing up in Syria in the hands of AlQaeda...and in Algeria where Westerners were murdered at the BP facility and reported in foreign press....Obama wants cover for his treaon...
....Obama not only was arming AlQaeda and turning the Middle East over to the IslamoCommunists...he has done these treasonous activities in the open, under the nose of stupid, blind or worse... complicit senators....

Thank God the Seal and this Ranger had the GUTS, the patriotism ...to call foul...when our Generals dishonor their entire careers and hide behind their pensions...WHO are these hollowed souled soldiers who dishonor their country and their oath!

There was gun and missile running....Brennan looks like the arms deler point man for Obama and the shadow head of the CIA...

FAST AND FURIOUS BENGHAZI STYLE....

If true that Stevens was kept in the dark...and had met with Senator Inhoef the week before his death...Benghazi looks to be a set up....LameChery called it long ago...
.And the why of the Lochkeed official that resigned when Petraeus did ...also for an affair...That Lochkeed Chief Operating Officer had TRIPLED sales at Lochkeed in ONE year, in 2011..Explain that...Mr COO. If we´re fighting a war, let the American people know...

WWIII ? Stop now

The President, as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief, has a right to the cabinet of his choosing. These confirmation hearings are cheap political theater for B-list politicians like Graham. The President won the election; his nominees should be confirmed absent serious evidence of malfeasance. The GOP are foolishly squandering political capital, making it easy for Democrats to tar them as obstructionist, and all for what purpose? To spare the President from being held accountable for his administration. End this foolish business regarding the President´s nominees! Graham is a fool and if he is on your side you should be doing some real soul searching.

#15 asserts "The President, as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief, has a right to the cabinet of his choosing."

No, he doesn´t.

1. The Constitutional requirement of nomination, advice, and consent clearly and obviously invalidates that claim. Ooops!

2. Beyond that, reason can very shortly produce a long list of patently-disqualifying factors. Start with: a. foreign citizenship; b. criminal history; c. previous impeachment and removal from office; d. unauthorized [read: illegal] possession of over 1,100 FBI files; e. ah, nuts -- any honest examiner of the issue can come up with plenty more.

Media and particularly cable news has never been as polarized as it is today. It’s also never been tilted more towards opinion and less toward objective reporting of hard news. As a result, trust in media has fallen to an all-time low. Reporters in particular are looked upon as dishonest brokers in the business, with Gallup showing only 20 percent of those polled finding journalists honest and ethical (that’s 65 percent lower than nurses, 50 percent lower than doctors and engineers). Solid investigative reporters are simply in short supply and demand. Why? Because with opinion programming so much cheaper to produce

WASHINGTON — In her darkest hour last fall, Kathleen Sebelius suffered one of the deepest cuts from an old family friend who accused her of “gross incompetence” over the rollout of the Affordable Care Act and demanded that she resign as secretary of health and human services. Now she is weighing revenge. Ms. Sebelius is considering entreaties from Democrats who want her to run against that old friend, Senator Pat Roberts, Republican of Kansas. Several Democrats said this week that Ms. Sebelius had been mentioned with growing frequency as someone who could wage a serious challenge to Mr. Roberts, 77, who is

   

 



 
Why You Should Be Sympathetic
Toward Cliven Bundy

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Under a ´Blood Moon´: First total lunar

The moon took on an eerie blood-red hue early Tuesday during the first total lunar eclipse of 2014, a celestial sight that wowed potentially millions of stargazers across North and South America. The total lunar eclipse of April 15 lasted about 3.5 hours between late Monday and early Tuesday, with the Earth´s shadow slowing darkening the face of the so-called "Blood Moon" in a jaw-dropping sight for stargazers willing to stay up extra late or rise super-early for the event. "Definitely worth the early wake-up call," skywatcher Brett Bonine of Arkansas told Space.com in an email.

Barbara Walters told him that CNN’s covered this “more than any other story than I can remember.” Lemon said, “I think you’re probably right, but the audience interest is there.” Walters brought up the ratings issue, to which Lemon responded, “It’s not just the ratings, but we’re giving––part of what our mission is to give the audience what they want.” He argued that it’s important to keep covering the missing plane for the sake of the

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

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

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
