Sources: 15 days after Benghazi attack,
FBI still investigating from afar

CNN, by Staff

Original Article

More than two weeks after four Americans -- including the U.S. ambassador to Libya -- were killed in an attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, FBI agents have not yet been granted access to investigate in the eastern Libyan city, and the crime scene has not been secured, sources said."They've gotten as far as Tripoli now, but they've never gotten to Benghazi," CNN National Security Analyst Fran Townsend said Wednesday, citing senior law enforcement officials.

Senator McPain is on FOX right now and is being beat up to admit that the latest reports show that the White House knew within an hour that the attack was AlQuada.

The Won is trying to keep a lid on till after the election.

I'm impressed that CNN has somebody as legit as Fran Townsend as an analyst. Also, I had no idea she's so gorg...I was surfing the other night and paused while she was talking to Anderson about this. I'm inclined to give CNN some love because of this excellent reporting (finding the journal and whatnot). (I still say they should move right since Fox is moving left and leaving that niche open.)

This whole thing is a debacle of the highest order. I've seen some speculation that Stevens was investigating arms movements to terrorists and felt they were targeting him for that. We'll never know now.

Let's treat an attack on our embassy/consulate as a crime scene. Yep -those FBI agents can dig through the contaminated crime scene, arrest a couple of perps and read them their Miranda rights - just wonderful. It's not a war on terror anymore. What's next? McGruff the Dog instructing little Muslim children to just say no to terror?

If the media wants to do cover for Obama they will and nothing will work its way into the news to the large majority of Americans who only listen at 6pm and 10pm. The media must be stopped in this blatant campaigning for Obama. They have lost credibility to only those who pay attention. Sadly that is not enough to win an election and the media knows it.

None of this matters about national security. The only thing the press and Obama are peddling is that Mitt paid 14% on his taxes, no mention that it was the second tax since it is on investment income. So, the whole issue of greed, envy and who has a bigger pile of stuff can resonate with the 47% who, yes, depend on govt. They are not all freeloaders. But, they all depend on govt. That should wake them up that govt has nothing unless they first take it from someone, but somehow they shut off their brains after "He has more" and hear not one other thing.

So our FBI agents can’t even get into the area to investigate the “crime scene,” heh. Just goes to show you how little respect our cringing, apologetic, nasty little Uriah Heep of a President and the U.S gets, after he has done his little sniffling, bowing, and scraping routine all over the world.

What should have happened is that an hour or two after the attack a whole hell of a lot of American firepower should have landed in front of our diplomatic compound, commandos should have secured the area, picked up anyone still in the area for very rough questioning, and military investigators should have started to investigate this terror attack, and the officials in Benghazi and Libya should have been told that they were responsible for security and failed—likely deliberately in cooperation with the attacker’s plan, and that unless they wanted their city and a good portion of the country leveled and a lot more people shot they should be very, very anxious to cooperate.

The conjecture, or perhaps more accurately allegation, I favor is that Stevens was on an errand to negotiate sequestration of weapons the US had supplied to anti-Gadhafi forces, which were now at risk of falling into al Queda hands. The meeting was to be off record, and hence the Benghazi consulate venue without a Marine security team, but rather two civilian former SEALs.

The whole affair was an al Queda trap, as the Ambassador suspected and noted in his journal, and ended badly. He has been sent on a fool’s errand by an embarrassingly naïve Kumbaya SOS and CIC, who immediately ducked under their cover story of a movie trailer protest, a cover that was equally embarrassing in its amateurish implausibility.

The Secretary’s shaken demeanor at the ceremony receiving the bodies of the fallen Americans back in the US was understandable. Unlike political wars she was accustomed to, these skirmishes were for keeps, and lives, not elections, are lost. Sending good men to their deaths is haunting.

And it should be haunting as well to an electorate that sent a boy-child to do a man’s Presidency and a girl-child to do an adult’s diplomacy job.

Amateur hour in the White House cost good men their lives because in 2008 the nation chose poorly. Pray it does better in 2012.

What a joke. Talk about a"contaminated crime scene."

The equivalent of half the Bulgarian army has by now tramped through this supposed "crime scene," for almost two weeks, and smashed or stolen whatever was left unburnt or valuable and picked up their souvenirs.

Hell, days ago even CNN reporters had already been through, sifted through the scene, and found the Ambassador's private diary.

Just pathetic and totally symptomatic of Obama's cringing, apologetic, flaccid, impotent, fantasy-based, hate-America, kick me again, so called "foreign policy."

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 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.

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.

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?

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.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

"Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

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
