Benghazi Again
Time Magazine, by Joe Klein

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 5/8/2013 11:21:13 AM

The Republicans, apparently with nothing better to do, are still chasing their tails over the tragic events in Benghazi on September 11.Actually, no. That’s not true. They’re chasing their tails over what happened after the tragic events of September 11. They’re mostly concerned that the Obama Administration tried to cover up the fact that this was a terrorist attack by a local militia (translation: local street gang) which aspired toward bad-butt Al Qaeda status. This is a pretty hard sell since, the day after the attack, the President called it an “act of terror.”

Comments:
This is unbelievable, even for Joe Klein. He actually blames Republicans for cutting the embassy security budget. His last paragraph ends by complaining about Republicans wanting to cut spending. This is your Kneepad Media, folks.

Don´t forget, Klein, the first ones up against the wall after the revolution are the useful idiots who usher in the vangaurd. Just ask Howie Kurtz.

The problem for this hack trying to blame budget cuts is that the State Department already said on the record that the decisions were NOT budgetary and that they had plenty of money

Does rge writer truly believe what he is saying and insinuating? Who can say? I am not sure which would be worse: that he knows better and is pretending otherwise, or that he is perfectly sincere.

This would seem to be a man who like many in the media has made a Faustian bargain and sold his soul to the devil. It is terribly sad to see Americans behaving this way. It is hard to see how the Republic can survive a bien-pensant who thinks -or claims to think- the way Joe Klein does.

#9 Liberals love the Truth, but not always the truth. Winston Churchill once said to Joseph Stalin about secret war plans, "The truth is so precious that it must be protected by a body guard of lies." Stalin appreciated the remark, as it described precisely the communist philosophy. When the goal is Good, it may be advanced by all means, including evil.

Hey Joe, who gave the stand down order? Why aren´t the lawyers getting the top secret clearance they need? I´m pretty sure the Boston Marathon Bomber got his lawyer within a about a heart beat. In this case Joe, Amb. Sevens did request more security. Why didn´t he get it. If he was so lax then his request should have sent up all sorts of red flags.

Then why, Joe, are the 30+ Benghazi survivors under lock and key by the Obama adminstration? What´s to hide? Where was Obama during the "tragic events"? He was AWOL and left Hillary and Panetta in charge after 5pm and did not reappear until the next day. Why? Did the Obama CIA gun smuggling to Syrian rebels go bad? Well, that wasn´t going to interfere with The Won´s election chances nor Hillary´s 2016 run. If people had to die, so be it. After all, they can always depends on media hacks like Joe Klein to run cover for them.

OF COURSE, IT´S POLITICAL, you knucklehead!
Obama´s decision to take no action during the attack, and then cover up the facts and blame an anti-muslim video, and then ship off and sequester the US survivors so they can´t seak out, meanwhile taking no action to find the terrorists and brig them to justice was a POLITICAL ACT BY OBAMA, in the 6 weeks before an election.
Obama was derelict in his duty as C-in-C, and deserted his post to go fund-raising.
THAT was political.
He deserves a prison sentence for this.

I know people who are absurdly proud of calling themselves progressives. They think it actually means they are good people because the word ´progress´ is in there. No kidding. I think this describes a large number of leftists. And this is why they will never admit there is anything wrong with their leftists policies or their Marxist president. To do so would hurt their self-image as good people, because they have nothing to fall back - no real ethical system, no acts of charity, no search for a more meaningful existence. Their moral identity is completely tied to politics, which is of course why it is so barren.

There could be a videotape of Valerie Jarrett ordering the stand down order and telling Obama to get some rest before his Vegas trip and they would still defend him. They will never admit they are wrong and they will do anything to stay in power.

Joe, if someone at Time decided that reporters didn´t need a desk, a phone, a computer, or access to the building outside working hours, would that be below the pay grade of the Editor? There were warning that were acted on by other nations but ignored by the US State Department. An attack happened and no rescue was attempted. After the attack, the truth was buried and replaced with fiction.

Arizona tribe set to prosecute

Washington Post, by Sari Horwitz    Original Article

On Pascua Yakui Indian Reservation, Ariz. — Tribal police chief Michael Valenzuela drove through darkened desert streets, turned into a Circle K convenience store and pointed to the spot beyond the reservation line where his officers used to take the non-Indian men who battered Indian women. “We would literally drive them to the end of the reservation and tell them to beat it,” Valenzuela said. “And hope they didn’t come back that night. They almost always did.” About three weeks ago, at 2:45 a.m., the tribal police were called to the reservation home of an Indian woman who was allegedly

More than 600 teachers have walked out of Wake County Schools since the start of the school year. The school district says people are leaving for many reasons. Some for jobs in other states. Others are getting out of the profession entirely. However, many have a common reason -- not enough pay.Thursday´s announcement came as the debate over teacher pay escalates. North Carolina teachers haven´t had a pay increase in five years. They currently rank among the lowest paid in the country. School leaders say they´re seeing a 41 increase in teacher resignations over the same period last year, and teachers

A new lawsuit alleges that “X-Men” director Bryan Singer sexually abused an underage boy at a lurid California sex party. The bombshell suit claims the director of blockbuster hits like “Superman Returns” used his position in Hollywood to exploit young men by taking part in a sex ring. The lawsuit, filed by attorney Jeff Herman, charges that Singer attended parties at a mansion in Encino, California where adult males did drugs and had sex with teenage boys.The teen mentioned in the suit never consented to sexual relations with Singer and often persisted, it states, according to a press release from Herman’s

An 89-year-old Navajo woman wants the land she´s lived on all her life to be left to her family once she dies. But here´s the catch; she lives inside a national park, and age-old conflicts between the family and the National Parks Service may prevent that from happening. Stella Peshlakai Smith, who barely speaks any English, was born in what is now the Wupatki National Monument north of Flagstaff in 1924, a month before the land became part of a national park. Her daughter, Helen Peshlakai Davis, says it´s home to her. "There´s no other place that I want to call

The TCM (Turner Classic Movies) cable channel celebrated its twentieth anniversary yesterday. It did so in grand style, rebroadcasting movies from its first day on the air (Gone With the Wind and It Happened One Night). After GWTW, TCM broadcast an interesting interview with host-for-life Robert Osborne conducted by Alec Baldwin. I have been a high volume consumer of TCF roughly since day one. I am a little vague on Ted Turner’s acquisition of the rights to just about every worthwhile movie ever made, but with TCM, he is putting them to good — even ingenious — use. The films

Accused O.C. killers likely
wore GPS devices during
slayings, police say
Los Angeles Times, by Paloma Esquivel and Adolfo Flores    Original Article

Authorities said Monday that a pair of sex offenders suspected of raping and murdering at least four women probably wore their court-ordered GPS devices during the crimes. Franc Cano, 27, and Steven Dean Gordon, 45, had been required to wear the devices after serving time in prison for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 14. Police on Monday also said that they are now “confident” that there is a fifth victim -- and perhaps more -- in a string of slayings that has been tied to a pair of registered sex offenders. The men were formally Monday charged

Some time back, whenever a big racial controversy erupted, I trained myself into the habit of reading about it at FoxNews.com, just for the unbelievable comment threads. Let’s put it this way: If my friends and I went out to a bar and started playing a “let’s write the racist FoxNews.com comment thread” drinking game, our efforts couldn’t begin to approach what I read there.I wasn’t alone. Liberal websites started feasting on these threads. And so, a couple of years ago, Ailes & Co. got wise. Stories about race were, at least in my disheartened experience, closed to comments.

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

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

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
