Petraeus’s role in drafting Benghazi
talking points raises questions

Washington Post, by Scott Wilson and Karen DeYoung

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/21/2013 11:03:01 PM

The controversy over the Obama administration’s response to the Benghazi attack last year began at a meeting over coffee on Capitol Hill three days after the assault. It was at this informal session with the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence that the ranking Democrat asked David H. Petraeus, who was CIA director at the time, to ensure that committee members did not inadvertently disclose classified information when talking to the news media about the attack. “We had some new members on the committee, and we knew the press would be very aggressive on this, so we didn’t want

What a bunch of !!!! These two clowns at the Washington Post are accusing Petraeus of drafting the original talking points in a way that would present the CIA in a favorable light. Forget the fact that they represented the truth ! Then they say that the White House didn´t really have a role in shaping the changes in the talking points, they merely acted as a go-between in facilitating the various edits by State and CIA. There´s still lots of kool aid left to be guzzled out there. It´s going to be a long hot summer.

The journ-0-leestas were summoned to the White House this morning. Was it just coffee in the West Wing or could some talking points have been distributed. I can hardly believe the most ethical WH ever would do that.

This article has been cut and spliced to clear the White House. The talking points most specifically did not find that the attack on Benghazi resulted from a spontaneous demonstration against a video. It is absurd to declare that the White House was the only group disturbed by the honesty of the initial version of the talking points.

So, the washing machine is on SPIN cycle again. Carney cannot keep his stories straight so he has requested help on Benghazi. The IRS spin Carney puts out changes each time he opens his mouth. The knee-pad wearers to the rescue, once again!

So we now know that Hillary sold stinger missiles to terrorists, and then she sent our ambassador over to buy them back, and these terrorists used them against us and murdered Stevens and three other brave Americans. Now we know why she stalled being questioned about these matters. Petraeus was scared to death that his affair would be outed, and they had him over the barrel. No wonder Hillary and 0bama left them all there to die; they were afraid the truth would come out, and it did.

But then there is Bloomberg .... then the NYTimes.... then NBC ..... then even the redoubtable Financial Times has gone elitist (think this statement a bit much? ... go read the FT the weekend after UKIP shocked British politics a few weeks back ..... FT: UKIP essentially are populist thugs versus the enlightened majority parties of the UK who favor the Euro project -- the FT has lost its financial bearings!) ...ugh

Patraeus should be cellmates in federal hardtime prison with Obongo, Panetta, Clinton, Dempsey, Donilon and McDonough (at a minimum) for criminal negligence in the deaths of 4 Americans and the abandoment of 30+ Americans. If some of the above don´t go to prison over Benghazi, then we are through as a nation.

I guess we shouldn´t be too harsh on Petraeus in all this. After all, he was doing a lot of thinking below his belt at the time, he was very preoccupied and Obama was holding Petraeus´ trashy affair over his head. Really smart for the director of the CIA to be having an illicit affair at the time. I wonder what Obama had over the traitor Justice Roberts, or has over John Boehner?

Petraeus´s role in drafting the talking points is really irrelevant. The fact is they had to come up with a storyline 3 days after the attack and decided to lie about the anti-muslim film being the reason for it.

It was all hands on deck for that phony narrative and I´m dubious on how big a role Petraeus played.He´s still in a position where he can´t defend himself because of some form of blackmail.He sure didn´t tell Susan Rice to do the big 5.

These people are still manufacturing lies to cover this up and there has to be a big reason why.

#11, I´ve read that the way Justice Roberts and his wife adopted their two lovely children from Ireland might have skirted Irish law. I have no idea if that´s true. Alas, I don´t think Boehner needs to be blackmailed to make a mixed of good and really bad decisions. I think of him as a mostly good guy who has been in Congress too long and has a dangerous "failure of imagination." People should take a 30,000-foot view of why Obama and the progressives are so intent on giving weapons to terrorists like the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and al qaeda who is fighting on the side of the Syrian rebels. Do they think the aligator will eat them last? Do progressives mistake themselves for aligators and see terrorists as just honey badgers? Do progressives think they can give the ME to islamists and they´ll be satisfied with a partial califate and be so grateful for the help that they´ll leave leftist elites alone? Fat chance.

Did not know about C.Justice Roberts adoption situation. That might explain the hold Obama has on him. We have criminals in charge of our country and our Republican leadership is corrupt too. If Repubs let Obama´s administration and the Dem party off lightly we will all know Repubs are in the tank for them. The next election would be a cake walk if Repubs wanted to win. Somehow I doubt we take the Senate with the current lack of passion for the truth and the desire to go for the throat(figuratively) fighting spirit among the Repub establishment. None of them want to rock the boat of their own power and perks.

If the Rats hit on Petraeus too much he´s liable to take the whole bunch down. He doesn´t have much to lose anymore except his honor, and I don´t think he´s going to give that up without a big nasty fight.

Petraeus´ scandal with that woman was all about keeping him under control with coersion. They had the goods on him and they thought he would shut up...

Well -- that didn´t happen. So now they are dragging his name out because they feel he´s not credibile with the American public....

Ya gotta think like the Chicago mob. Scary -- I"ve lived here so long -- I´m thinking like one of em....

There are some LOL areas in this piece.
" A close reading of recently released
government e-mails..."
is WaPo speak for transcribing the dictation of the WH.
You see, all along, the White House
was the one who wanted to tell the truth about Benghazi , but, it was General Petraeus
who masterminded the plot to deceive Americans,
The WH must feel pretty confident that they can still
control Petraeus .
The bugging obviously didn´t stop with the AP and James Rosen.
Perhaps DeYoung and Wilson in their zeal for the truth
might investigate the whereabouts of the Commander in Chief
on the night of the attack.
So far, that elephant in the room is always ignored.
We know he was last seen at 5 pm Sept 11.
The White House released this statement on Sept 12, 2012 :
" The President was notified last night that Ambassador Stevens was unaccounted for
and then notified again
this morning about his tragic death."

My guess is that when Blessed Hussein saw the footage of Benghazi streaming the pm of 9/11, he immediately left the room and went off the grid- telling them to stonewall first and foremost and to handle it themselves so that he has no record with which to be attacked.

The ´Who, Me?´ gambit.

Meanwhile, he gets the bong out and has a great evening watching TV, eats some Cheetos and goes to bed and leaves for Vegas next morning.

No problem.

We are arguing about what Petraeus might or might not have put into his report. Have we ever seen a copy of his original report? I certainly have not.

It seems to me that it is obvious that his first report did not please Washington and they have taken care to keep it secret. Until we have seen it we really have no way to draw conclusions. Some poster here wants him in jail. What for?

Does Mrs. Petraeus still have her no-show job that pays about $200k? The one Obama gave her.

USAID documents cite Hillary

Washington Times, by Guy Taylor    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 4/20/2014 10:21:24 PM     Post Reply
In internal government documents with potential repercussions for the 2016 presidential election, top officials at the U.S. Agency for International Development repeatedly cited former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton for setting into motion a policy to waive restrictions on who could receive U.S. aid in Afghanistan, resulting in millions of dollars in U.S. funds going directly into the coffers of Afghan ministries known to be rife with corruption. References to Mrs. Clinton’s role in the policy first appeared in a November 2012 USAID action memo, which outlined how U.S. officials made a “strategic foreign-assistance

If “Meet the Press” moderator David Gregory were a guest on his own show, he knows the kinds of questions he’d be asked. Why have your ratings been falling? Is the show in trouble?

Every week I want to be number one, and we fight like hell to get there. And it’s tough right now. It’s a fight.” He adds, “I’m not just trying to sell you — well, I am trying to sell you — but I’m not going to B.S. you, either. Yeah, it’s hard. I see what our challenges are.

Long-term unemployed struggle
to find — and keep — jobs

For the long-term unemployed, finding a job is hard — but keeping one may be even harder. New research tracking people who have been out of work for six months or longer found that 23 percent of them landed a job within a few months of the study. But a year later, more than a third of that group was unemployed again or out of the labor force altogether. The findings are the latest in a bleak but growing body of literature suggesting long-term unemployment has become a trap that is difficult to escape. Economists say that means the long-term unemployed could become a permanent underclass, left behind by the nation’s broader

The Social Security Administration announced Monday that it will immediately cease efforts to collect on taxpayers’ debts to the government that are more than 10 years old. The action comes after The Washington Post reported that the government was seizing state and federal tax refunds that were on their way to about 400,000 Americans who had relatives who owed money to Social Security. In many cases, the people whose refunds were intercepted had never heard of any debt, and the debts dated as far back as the middle of the past century. “I have directed an immediate halt to further

Democrats have had a recurring problem in special elections this year: Their voters aren’t turning out. If a weak economy and continued Obamacare problems persist, the November elections could be a disaster for Democrats. Last week, Democrats lost two special elections they weren’t planning to. Arlington, Va., is a classic wealthy ObamaTown, filled with government workers and limousine liberals. Mitt Romney won only 29 percent of the vote in 2012. But last Tuesday, Democrats lost their first election for the five-member Arlington County Board in 15 years when John Vihstadt, a Republican running as an independent, won a vacancy on

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said little as federal agents seized and then released cattle last week from the Bundy ranch, but there is little doubt that the highly charged episode was threatening to become a political headache for the Nevada Democrat. The Bureau of Land Management is headed by former longtime Reid aide Neil Kornze, who was confirmed by the Senate as BLM director on Tuesday, just as federal authorities descended on the cattle ranch outside Mesquite, Nev. Mr. Kornze issued a statement Saturday saying that the bureau would return the cattle and withdraw its agents from the ranch

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.

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. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

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

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
