White House shoots down rumors
it nixed Benghazi intervention

The Hill [Washington DC], by Julian Pecquet

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/31/2012 3:18:34 PM

The White House on Wednesday shot down rumors that President Obama nixed an operation to rescue U.S. diplomats under attack in Benghazi after former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich made the claim on national television. “Neither the President nor anyone in the White House denied any requests for assistance in Benghazi during the attack,” National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor told The Hill via email. Gingrich told Fox News on Tuesday evening that he'd been told by a “fairly reliable” U.S. senator that at least two news networks have emails

If you want to "shoot down rumors" you need to actually give out information not simply denials.

The other question is - did they offer assistance?

There had been a C-130 gunship in Libya but it was moved out of country shortly before. It would be like Obama to ask what were available resources. When told that the C-130 was available nearby but out of country and would make hash out of the attackers, I can envision Obama limiting them to in-country resources. Thus being able to say, "I didn't deny intervention."

This should of course read "White House denies rumors..." instead of "White House shoots down rumors..." Another example of blatant journalistic bias. There are too many to count.

Who knows what the truth is? Not the public, not yet. This situation will certainly continue past the election. It is typical Obama stonewalling. He has done this about everything, beginning with his birth certificate, records, Fast and Furious, energy policy, health care, etc. He will certainly do it about Benghazi. It is obvious that he is hiding all kinds of things about all sorts of things public and private. There is more hidden and unknown about this man and his behavior and associations and past than is known. Almost everything that is known -or is thought to be known- has been told us by himself and his handlers. The documented parts of his entire life and his presidency are slight indeed. Americans can thank the mainstream news media for this unprecedented and dangerous state of affairs. Not only have they failed to investigate and challenge him like other presidents, they have actually done their best to discredit and defeat anyone who tries to find out more facts about this mystery man president.

I hope President Romney doesn't sweep this under the rug when he comes to office. This is too important and too treasonous to pull a Bush and just let it go. Heads really, really need to roll. It cries out for justice.
Something else that needs some long-awaited justice is that wall street meltdown four years ago. I can't believe there haven't been any perp walks over that, but there certainly haven't.
It's not good for the moral fiber of our people to see things like that just fade away.

They may think they are shooting down rumors, but the truth will not be easily shot down with an empty gun. 0 & Co. are just hoping that the arms trafficking to Al Qaeda aspect of Benghazigate (The real reason the CIA was there.) will not get out before the election.

“Shoots down”? Hardly. They simply floated another balloon into the already considerable fray. Their unsubstantiated denial carries little weight at this point.
In the continuing fallout on this topic their contention seems to be that no one in the WH knew anything or did anything – except to give an order to do whatever it took to protect the ambassador from the movie review. But no one seems to have been on the receiving end of that directive.

Just give us the video, audio and transcripts and you’ll be cleared, Mr. Pres. Nothing to worry about, right?

Senate GOP maps out its majority plan

Senate Republicans already have their agenda set should they take the majority this fall. Seven months before the election, the GOP senators in line to become committee chairmen know what they would do with their gavels. In interviews with The Hill, the senators promised to work closely with House Republicans to break the legislative gridlock that has defined Congress since 2011. They are also vowing to step up oversight of the Obama administration dramatically and battle the president’s use of administrative power. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) has vowed that if elected majority leader, he would give Republican committee

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the

JERUSALEM — Israel’s top negotiator said Thursday that Israel will not release a fourth batch of Palestinian prisoners, a move that brings the sputtering U.S.-backed peace talks ever closer to collapse. In an all-night meeting brokered by U.S. diplomat Martin Indyk, Israel’s chief negotiator Tzipi Livni told her Palestinian counterparts that since the Palestinians had taken unilateral steps toward greater recognition by the United Nations, the Israeli government would cancel the final release of 26 long-serving Palestinian prisoners, according to Israeli officials close to the talks. At the meeting, Israel also called upon the Palestinians to withdraw the letters they

But what almost no one is saying: change gun laws. The Fort Hood attack is the latest in a string of mass shootings, from the Navy Yard attack in September to a shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin the year before, where the response from Washington has shifted from guns – to the shooters who wield them.

Suddenly the subject of income inequality has turned into a global love train. Politicians and public-policy shops all over the world are hopping onboard. Naturally the engineer is Barack Obama, who gives speeches on income inequality and won a presidential election by rolling over 1% of the population. Democrats in this year´s midterm elections are running on income inequality, and this is rational. Their alternatives don´t look attractive, despite ObamaCare´s seven million recruits. Less obvious is the linkage being made now between global warming and—what else?—income inequality. Or that the International Monetary Fund is moving income inequality to the top of

As part of Morell´s testimony on Wednesday, the former acting and deputy CIA director acknowledged that he overruled the guidance of the top CIA officer in Libya at the time.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016. The former two-term governor of Florida speaks fluent Spanish, is a convert to Catholicism, and has high name recognition. Jeb could raise millions of dollars over night by just saying “yes” to running. Despite all this, there are strong reasons Republicans should say no to him. 1. His last name is poison. Let’s face it, if Jeb Bush had the last name of Something Else he would have already run for president in 2008 or 2012. According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

The human kindling that makes up the flammable Republican base may soon burst into flames, again. Portions of that excitable cohort are looking — some with fawn-like eyes filled with hurt, others with sparks shooting from eyes narrowed like gun slits — askance at other Republicans urging Jeb Bush to seek the 2016 presidential nomination. A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable. But if Republicans want to avoid intra-party carnage, they should be very careful about doing what The Post recently reported: “Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft
