Republican Congressman Peter King just exited the closed-door hearing with David Petraeus to update the media, and his description of the ex-CIA Chief´s testimony contained more than one bombshell. For starters, King said Petraeus told them that the CIA talking points meant for U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice´s Sept. 16 round robin of five Sunday network news shows, originally contained the information that there was evidence al-Qaeda elements were involved in the attack. These talking points were then altered through "an inter-agency process."
Who would stand to benefit from the video myth? Answer: Barack Hussein Obama. His Arab Spring/Osama-is-dead narrative has to be protected. It’s obvious that the WH hatched the myth, and leaned on Petraeus to fudge his original testimony, almost certainly by blackmailing him with exposure of his affair.
Because that is crime, and one that involves an act of war against America, it rises to the level of high crimes and misdemeanors.
Inter-agency Process = Who is in charge of this process? If we are to believe this is a compilation of reports from all intelligence departments, then which dept originated the video narrative that was included in Rice´s talking points?
Mr. Honorable or not, if they don´t ask the questions they can´t get the answers. It appears they weren´t asking the hard questions just providing a forum for the Administration (which Petraeus seems to still be a part of, at least in his heart)to layout their story.
Unfortunately, #13 is correct. We have a kardashian electorate, and once the Fat Bast*rd implicitly endorsed president zero, the election was decided. I have been around since FDR was president, lived through Nixon´s presidency, Ford´s ineptitude, bill clinton´s perversions, and this is the first time in my life that I hold little hope that our republic as a constitutional democracy will stand. I say that in all seriousness. We are doomed. President Zero´s campaign has found the formula for bringing out the minority and lower class vote - the 47%, if you will, and that will be the template for future elections, presidential and congressional.
So, does liberal, super brilliant rice enjoy being used as a stupid tool of the dem party? Is she hitting the bottle as hard as hillary is in order to tolerate their supine position under king obama´s foot?
I already knew that anything out of Susan Rice´s mouth would be a lie. Who ordered the STAND DOWN???? That´s the most important question. Who let these 4 brave Americans die??? President Jarrett or Obama????
Now what happens? Please don´t tell me the Congress is goingto let this pass. Soldiers, sailors , Marines, Ambassadors and consul staff must be wondering what about if it was me? This does not generate a feeling of confidence. Call Val Jar in to testify under oath. Leave her Secret Service guard outside.
Don´t hold your breath while waiting for the pseudo-communsit main stream media to support the thesis that Obama´s goons removed the line. They´ll just keep on lying, and lying, and lying, and lying and being the Obama propaganda arm. As for Rice, she´s the modern day "Manchurian Candidate" and will continue to spew her mindless babble forever.
# 13 I can´t tell you how many educated , professional people I have encountered that don´t have a clue about Benghazi. Rove and Sheldon Adelson and the other Super PACS should have spent their millions trying to buy one of the tv networks. That might have done more good. So...are we to believe that the Director of the CIA never told the President ???? Or that Obama never asked Petraeus ? -Oh wait, I can buy that. Was Petraeus under oath ? The Democrats and the media continue to focus on the video and ignore the bigger story. That someone in the Oval Office decided that an entire consulate of 34 " folks " should burn to death. Now.. if they were NBA players or rappers in danger , I absolutely believe Barry would have leapt into action and ordered every asset possible immediately deployed to save them. Barry took Jay- Z and Beyonce into the Situation Room , but, he wouldn´t enter it to save the folks in danger at Benghazi . Some Americans are obviously more expendable than others.
Petraeus,started the ball rolling, by his testimony today. Now Congress has to build on it and see where it goes. Hopefully the Pres. and his Mob will be nailed for changing the CIA´s original report on Benghazi?
The truth about Bengazi would not have altered the election results. This election was determined by the greedy, the frightened, and the dumb. These voters do not love their country enough to do the right thing in the voting booth and put their country first.
I don´t think most people ever bought into the idea that it was the video that started things in Benghazi.Certainly not the regulars at this forum.A question that I wonder about is why was it U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice that was asked to go on the talk shows with the fabricated "talking points"? As far as who was the final authority on what was to be said I agree with those who say Obama because he did not want the Al Qaeda connection made because it would contradict his claim that we had Al Qaeda on the run.
Bet Jarrett and Axelrod´s fingerprints are all over those edited talking points. And Susan Rice is a fool to be setup to go on TV and flat out lie. I think that Rice like Obama are at best middling talents who have ridden the affirmative action train to fat city.
The news is whatever the press makes it to be. if they dont print it , it never happened. AND, if nothing happened , and they say it did,......well it did !. The media stopped reporting truth a long time ago, what drives them is agenda.
This paves the way for a Special Select Committee in investigate and have PUBLIC hearings. McCain has said as much. There are too many different branches of this administration that have given conflicting testimony and then we have the statements from Rice and the testimony of the others already. Too bad for Obama that we were paying attention when they lied. Now we just have to sort out who it was that told Rice what to say. Shouldnt be too complicated.
It should be no secret to the morons in Congress that it was the Obama crew who changed the talking points, as Obama has been removing all references to Muslims and terrorists from just about everything that happens. Remember what happened at Fort Hood when a Muslim yelling "gos is great" murdered a group of US soldiers, the Obama crew called it an instance of workplace violence!
After the smoke clears, and if he plays the game, Petraeus could well get another job with the Obama crew, he does not want to mess that up, and besides his spouse still holds down a $178,000.00 a year job with the Obama crew in Washington, DC and he does not want any "revenge" to be taken against her.
I am sure that Peter King did not tell everything that was said in that committee hearing. We can start to figure this out ourselves. All we need is a smoking gun to prove that the Preezy is the guilty one. The question remains why he ordered the stand down because it could have only been him. What was happening in Benghazi that he didn´t want to be known. The more events unfold with Israel, it becomes clear that this was planned if Obama won. The fix was on. This is just plain ugly and frightening.
has it yet sunk in that closed door testimony is used to keep the suspects from knowing what is going to hit them and prevents them from twisting the facts? kept in the dark the targets often panics and destroys their own selves. For all anyone knows waiting was protecting lives such as family and opposing candidate.
Re #53, in addition to his chairmanship of the House Homeland Security Committee, King also sits on the House Intelligence Committee before which Petraeus appeared today. He is very involved in the Benghazi investigation and an excellent spokesperson.
The real issue is who told our troops to stand down. You and I know who, but getting it pinned on Zippy will be impossible.
Next, no one altered anything. It is a made-up lie. Think about it. By blaming an unknown person, it allows Petraeus to provide distance for Zippy in this whole mess and provides cover for Rice, who Zippy has a grand designs for her career.
"The original talking points were much more specific about al-Qaeda involvement and yet the finals ones just said´ indications of extremists."
Apparently from the article, the CIA didn´t mention anything about a video. OK, then who instilled the idea of a video causing the riot that was espoused by Rice et al (including Zippy)?
With what authority does the UN ambassador speak on attacks of our consulate in Libya? She should have no superior knowledge of what took place over there so why did she make the rounds on Sunday? Obviously she was serving as the spokesperon for Obama who chose to hide behind the skirt of a black woman for cover. What a cowardly piece of work he is. Winnow through the possible candidates to speak on the Libyan attack and you can easily see why she was chosen.
By Petraeus´s own admission today he knew at the time of his testimony on 9/14 that the video story was at best a deliberate misdirection, and at worst an outright lie. So at the time of his original testimony on 9/14 his integrity had already been compromised. He had already been brought into and was an active part of the coverup conspiracy, so he would not have been surprised by the story Rice was spreading on her 9/16 talk show tour. We aren´t going to get the full truth out of these people short of a full-on CIA interrogation. You get the bucket, I´ll get the towel.
Obama has said publicly that he ordered that all necessary measures (or some such wording) be taken to protect americans in Libya. Obviously it was Valerie Jarrett who overruled him and sent out the orders to stand down. If anyone comes after Valerie Jarrett the chivalrous Obama will come to her defence reminding everyone to come after him and leave the lady alone.
Okay so Petraeus testified and did a 180. Big deal. Now what? I agree with above posters. A corrupt press that is still carrying Zero´s water, a totally non-engaged majority electorate, another 4 years of "I Won", and a castrated Republican leadership and this story gets out how? Nothing to see here. Move on.
If Obama gets another couple of Justices as he might, the succession amendment will go the way of the dodo. Thus Obama will run again in 2016 and win, and we will be stuck with these hacks for yet anoter term
Listening to the Mark Levin show on the way home tonight I heard a story about a young man who knows an illegal who voted Obama. The illegal said "sucks to be you, great to be me". This illegal works, votes himself benefits, and thinks it´s funny.
The bus loads of Somalians - who can´t even read but were helped to vote - all the illegals for whom "providing ID would just be too terrifying", and all the others who vote themselves other people´s money just prove that our ancestors were correct: the republic will last until people figure out they can vote themselves money.
Romney would have been a great POTUS for those of us who believe in paying our way - and we were outvoted ergo the republic will not last.
There will be a revolution and I believe that is what Obama wants. And my personal opinion is he wants to convert the US to Muslim rule. I think Obama believes that Allah has parted the waters for him to enact this. And with what he´s gotten away with so far I can understand why he thinks this.
The Gen did good. His agenda might have been to lay a trap for the DC demorats...the high ones, catch them ALL (the high placed commies) and then spring the latch to leave them with their pants down. If so, he has succeeded getting them down to their briefs..or boxers as the case me be. ´Betraeus´, not so fast Mr Chan.
In a May 30, 2013, letter to CIA officers on the ground last fall in Benghazi, Libya, CIA director John Brennan notifies survivors of those attacks that congressional oversight committees remain interested in hearing from them. HPSCI (House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence) and SSCI (Senate Select Committee on Intelligence), Brennan wrote, “have asked that CIA leadership reach out to officers who were in Benghazi during the attacks to let them know of the committees’ interest in hearing first-hand account. While the committees have asked that we make those
For many Americans, the first inkling of an anti-Nazi German resistance movement came in the movie Valkyrie, starring Tom Cruise. The 2008 movie dramatized the German underground conspiracy headed by Count Claus von Stauffenberg to assassinate Hitler on July 20, 1944. This star-crossed plot was not only a colossal failure, it was also the anti-Nazi German resistance’s last gasp. In its aftermath, Hitler executed hundreds, if not thousands, of anti-Nazi Germans. What is less well known--what is not taught to us--is that there was much more to this anti-Nazi movement. Its leaders inside military, clergy,
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is on top of yet another poll today. But it´s not the result her team was hoping for. In a new Rasmussen Reports poll, Clinton tops five others as the one candidate voters don´t want to win in 2016. "Regardless of whom you would vote for, which candidate would you least like to see win the Democratic nomination in 2016? Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Martin O´Malley, Andrew Cuomo, Antonio Villaraigosa or Cory Booker?" Rasmussen asked. The results: Clinton 27 percent, Biden 24 percent.
Former President Bill Clinton made his first public comments on the New York mayor’s race, saying he and his wife Hillary Clinton were not even remotely involved in the race and declining to comment on former Rep. Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal. “We are a hundred miles from that race and everyone understands that we are not going to be involved, as long as our personal friends and people who we feel obligations are involved,” he told CNN in an interview posted Tuesday. The Clintons live outside of the city, but have been drawn into the fracas of the mayor’s race as a result of their relationship with Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s close aides, who is married to would-be mayor Anthony Weiner.
On Tuesday, Fox News Channel host Judge Andrew Napolitano appeared on Fox & Friends as a guest host where he savaged President Barack Obama’s administration for leaking details of the nature of the Al Qaeda threat to American embassies, including the phones of top terror leaders that U.S. intelligence services were monitoring. He said that these details were leaked to the press to prove spying initiatives, like the National Security Agency’s communications monitoring programs, are effective.
In late 2012, Donald E. Graham, the chairman and chief executive of The Washington Post Company, met with the paper’s publisher, Katharine Weymouth, to look at the paper’s future for the next three years. Their assessment troubled them. “We knew we could survive, but we always felt that our ownership should do more than help the paper survive,” Mr. Graham said in an interview Monday evening.With the agreement of the board, the company retained Allen & Company and had an initial round of discussions with six potential buyers.
This seemed inevitable. With all the efforts to tie the Tea Party and “right wing“ to violence committed by others, it wouldn’t be long before the Islamic radical Boston bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was tied to “right-wing” causes. With the slenderest of proof, The BBC goes there: One of the brothers suspected of carrying out the Boston bombings was in possession of right-wing American literature in the run-up to the attack, BBC Panorama has learnt.
The Republican Party threatened Monday to pull 2016 Republican primary debates from CNN and NBC if they do not drop plans for special programs on potential 2016 Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton—a move that could help the national party winnow the number of debates in the coming presidential election cycle. “It’s appalling to know executives at major networks like NBC and CNN who have donated to Democrats and Hillary Clinton have taken it upon themselves to be Hillary Clinton’s campaign operatives,” said Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican
It’s difficult to imagine someone more important in U.S. history than Harry Hopkins, but Americans don’t learn much more than his name, if that, in school. This means we aren’t taught that Hopkins, FDR’s top wartime advisor, ran what became known as “Roosevelt’s own personal Foreign Office” from the Lincoln Bedroom, where Hopkins lived for three-and-half-years. We aren’t taught that this former social worker in key ways controlled U.S. foreign policy by controlling the distribution of U.S. military materiel to countries at war through his supervision of the massive Lend Lease program.
In a shocking announcement late Monday, The Washington Post Co. announced that it´s selling its eponymous newspaper to Amazon.com founder and CEO Jeff Bezos for $250 million. Obviously, it´s early to say how the sale and new owner will affect the direction of the newspaper. Most new newspaper owners (ahem, Rupert Murdoch) immediately vow not to interfere with the news reporting of the paper, though sometimes they don´t keep that vow. As at many newspapers, Post editorial page editor Fred Hiatt reports to the publisher rather than the editor. Publisher Katharine Weymouth
Connecticut has so many advantages that it might be hard to understand how it became one of America’s worst-performing state economies. As we know, Connecticut is located along an important commercial corridor between New York and Boston. It’s well-served by railroads and highways. Major airports are accessible. Connecticut has many charming towns, historic sights, stylish shops and nice beaches. CNN determined that of America’s 25 towns with the highest median family incomes, four are in Connecticut – New Canaan (#1), Darien (#2), Westport (#5) and Greenwich (#14).
You can always tell the depth of an event’s illegality by the measures people take to cover it up. By that measure, the conduct of President Obama, Hillary Clinton, and David Petraeus leading up to the terrorist attack that killed four Americans on 9/11 2012 must be must be so sufficiently wrongful that, if revealed, they could lead to the president’s impeachment. How else can we gauge what is apparently the most energetic coverup in modern history? We know, from several sources, that the survivors of the attack
In 2008 and then again in 2012, after retired four-star General Colin Powell endorsed and then voted for Barack Obama, the former Secretary of State´s sanity was already in question. At least now, after having his email account hacked by high-level security-breacher Guccifer, Colin Powell´s besmirching of the Republican Party´s "shift to the right" and "identity crisis" finally makes sense. It seems that for years the mannerly and always professional Colin Powell has been cyber-comporting with a 46-year-old Romanian European Parliament member, Social Democrat, and past spokesperson for Romanian president Ion Iliescu named Corina Cretu
Conservatives have for years attempted to put our finger upon precisely why Barack Obama strikes us as queer in precisely the way he does. There is an alienness about him, which in the fever swamps is expressed in all that ridiculous Kenyan-Muslim hokum, but his citizen-of-the-world shtick is strictly sophomore year — the great globalist does not even speak a foreign language. Obama has been called many things — radical, socialist — labels that may have him dead to rights at the phylum level but not down at his genus or species. His social circle includes
For nearly a year, we have had no answer to why the administration lied about Benghazi — why it told the world, not to mention the parents of our murdered SEALs at the funeral of their sons, that the cause of that fatal conflagration was an anti-Islamic video no one saw, when the various arms of our executive branch (White House, State and intelligence) already knew, or strongly suspected, it was a terror attack orchestrated by al-Qaeda affiliates. You only have to read the now infamous talking points to know that. That this lie was deeply immoral is obvious.
He thought he was a woman trapped in a man’s body — but it turns out he’s “just another boring straight guy.” ABC News editor Don Ennis strolled into the newsroom in May wearing a little black dress and an auburn wig and announced he was transgender and splitting from his wife. He wanted to be called Dawn. But now he says he suffered from a two-day bout of amnesia that has made him realize he wants to live his life again as Don. “I accused my wife of playing some kind of cruel joke, dressing
WASHINGTON — Former Massachusetts lawmaker Barney Frank revealed that he doesn’t believe in God. During Friday’s appearance on HBO’s “Real Time With Bill Maher,” Frank, who championed the decriminalization of pot while serving in the House of Representatives, admitted to smoking marijuana and being an atheist. “You were in a fairly safe district. You were not one of those congress people who would have to worry about every little thing,” Maher said to Frank. “You could come on this show and sit next to a pot-smoking atheist and it wouldn’t bother you.”
The truth about Benghazi, the Associated Press/James Rosen monitoring, the IRS corruption, the NSA octopus, and Fast and Furious is still not exactly known. Almost a year after the attacks on our Benghazi facilities, we are only now learning details of CIA gun-running, military stand-down orders, aliases of those involved who are still hard to locate, massaged talking points, and the weird jailing of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula. We still do not quite know why Eric Holder’s Justice Department went after the Associated Press or Fox News’s James Rosen — given that members of the administration were themselves illegally leaking
Washington--As hundreds of commuters emerged from Amtrak and commuter trains at Union Station on a recent morning, an armed squad of men and women dressed in bulletproof vests made their way through the crowds. The squad was not with the Washington police department or Amtrak’s police force, but was one of the Transportation Security Administration’s Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response squads — VIPR teams for short — assigned to perform random security sweeps to prevent terrorist attacks at transportation hubs across the United States.(Snip)With little fanfare, the agency best known for airport screenings has vastly expanded its reach
A poll released Friday by Public Policy Polling found that Alaska voters would pick former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the state´s former Republican governor, Sarah Palin, if the two women were to face off in the 2016 presidential election. Clinton led with 49 percent in the hypothetical match-up, with Palin at 40 percent, a nine-point gap. As of July 3, Republicans comprised 27 percent of the state´s registered voters and Democrats made up just 14 percent. The last time Alaskans opted for the Democrats´ presidential candidate was in 1964. Clinton trails five other hypothetical GOP candidates –
In an interview for The Guardian Weekend magazine, actor Matt Damon recently weighed in with his thoughts on how President Barack Obama has handled the scandals that have engulfed his administration since the spring. Damon, a vocal supporter of the president since his 2008 campaign for national office, said that Obama is overcompensating for his lack of military background with his tough response to controversies like how the government is responding to National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden. The actor said that Obama is allowing himself to “get bullied” and is acting as though is “manhood”
Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus threatened to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for 2016 GOP presidential primary debates if the networks moved ahead with plans to air films on Hillary Clinton. “If they have not agreed to pull this programming prior to the start of the RNC’s Summer Meeting on August 14, I will seek a binding vote stating that the RNC will neither partner with these networks in 2016 primary debates nor sanction primary debates they sponsor,” Preibus said in a statement. In individual letters to CNN President Jeff Zucker and NBC Chairman Robert Greenblatt,
The Pentagon has placed its elite cadre of special operations teams on full alert to launch preemptive attacks against suspected al Qaeda targets across the globe, according to reports. The American special forces teams have spent the past week waiting for U.S. military and intelligence officials to confirm the whereabouts of the terror cell plotting to attack U.S. diplomatic outposts in the Mideast and North Africa. Unnamed sources told CNN on Monday that the teams were poised to carry out the preemptive strikes, but declined to comment on where the U.S. forces were located or which potential
Oprah Winfrey on Monday said the killings of Trayvon Martin and Emmett Till are the "same thing." This transpired during an interview with The Grio that aired on NBC´s Today show. OPRAH WINFREY: It´s so easy during this time: Trayvon Martin, Trayvon Martin parallel to Emmett Till, let me just tell you. In my mind, same thing. But you can, you can get stuck in that and not allow yourself to move forward and to see how far we´ve come. Really? Martin and Till are the same thing?
