Petraeus vs. Petraeus
Wall Street Journal, by William McGurn

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2012 5:41:11 AM

When David Petraeus told Congress on Friday that he knew almost from the get-go that Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed in a terror attack in Libya, the former CIA director was contradicting information put out by two prominent Obama appointees. The first is United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice. The Sunday after the attack, Ms. Rice took to the talk shows to blame everything, falsely, on an Islamic mob outraged by a blasphemous YouTube video. Mr. Petraeus says the CIA´s original talking points mentioned al Qaeda. If this was edited out, we ought to know who did it—and why.

Who decided to release the 2010 photo and who began to characterize Agent Humphries as ´obsessed´ with the woman? Clearly, it was an organized attempt to smear Mr. Humphries and to divert attention away from the real culprits in the Zero Administration.

Amb. Rice was the designated front because of only one thing: Plausible ignorance.

She was fed a mendacious storyline, had no knowledge of the facts and was the perfect marionette.

She willingly agreed to the role and no doubt was informed of the strategy beforehand.

President Zero is about to find out that there are federal career employees, at CIA, FBI, Defense, and State, that are going to be coming out with the truth.
That is one advantage to having career civil servants. They help bring out the truth.

We´ve all seen people do what Ms.Rice did for Obama. In the corporate world you have both men and women who will do whatever it takes to move up that ladder. She was willing to take the risk that what she was saying was either accurate, or would not be proved otherwise. Petraeus had already gone before congress and backed the story she was peddling. This task had low risk and high reward written all over it!
Obama is completely right when he says he is the one to go after on this and not the little lady.

What a tangle they all weave.....

Washington DC is lost -- people.....

It´s up to US to stay local and work on "state´s rights".. Of course that is if you have a state worth saving. Mine here in Illinois is done -- so I´m selling and moving out. Thanks to the obama/economy that´s not so easy....

Former political operative turned National Security Director Tom Donilon must be pleased that thusfar he has managed to fly under everyone´s radar regarding the alteration of the CIA intel report on Benghazi.

Charged with protecting Obie from any foreign eruption that might disturb the delicate balance of his reelection campaign during its final months, "taking care of" a messy thing like the Benghazi murders was surely part of his job description.

If you doubt me, read about him here and see what you think. New York Times puff piece written just 12 days after the Benghazi attack:

A Manager of Overseas Crises, as Much as the World Permits
By PETER BAKER
http://www.nytimes.com/2012/09/24/us/politics/tom-donilon-a-manager-of-overseas-crises.html?pagewanted=all

An excerpt:

“He is ferociously protective of the president’s priorities,” which is part of his job, said Kori Schake, who worked on President George W. Bush’s national security staff, “but comes down squarely on the side of the president’s political interests when they are at odds with our national interests.” She cited the timeline imposed on the Afghanistan troop surge, a move that mollified the antiwar left but has been criticized as premature.

#7, I´ve been wondering when McCain and Graham would wise up and haul the political hack Donilon before a Congressional Committee and put him under oath. Since most of the Obama-ites don´t even believe in God, people should make the basic assumption that Donilon will be lying.

As to Rice, I think she is so convinced of Obama´s "goodness" and so over-confident of her own judgment, that she never questioned the truthfulness of what she was being given as talking points. The fact that she never questioned why she, who in the president´s own words had nothing to do with Benghazi, was being sent out to explain what happened, tells all we need to know about her unquestioning slobbering devotion to the man. The woman has been involved in some of the biggest diplomatic and foreign policy failures in the past two decades, Rwanda genocide not the least.

The WSJ, always smug, as they are the WSJ, leads from behind and summarizes a story written numerous times by others. I wonder if the WSJ would address their questions to Obama, rather than its readers. I am just a little frustrated at the lack of courage from our press. Do your job.

Why did Gen Petraeus turn his back on his country? Between his September 14 testimony before Congress that the Benghazi attack was a result of the YouTube video, and his November 16 testimony that he knew it was a terrorist attack all along, all segments of the Obama Administration blamed the attack on the video. Four Americans were murdered, Al Qaeda is flourishing and a Presidential Election was at stake. Tragically, Petreaus waited until AFTER the election to state what he knew from the outset. Had he come forward with the truth and challenged even his “Commander in Chief,” he could have singlehandledly resolved the issue, and very likely altered the election outcome and changed the course of US history. He would have been the true American hero for generations to come. Duty, Honor, Country -- no "job" is worth more than that.

Its pretty clear that President Obama and his close in crew have been on a mission to essentially airbrush radical Islamist terrorists out of just about every terrorist incident that has occurred since he has been elected. To them there is no war on terror, at least that they will admit publicly.

Terror is a tactic that is being used by enemies who the Obama crew refuses to admit are there for everybody to see.

The terrorist incident at Fort Hood where a radical Islamist who infiltrated the US military murdered a number of US soldiers is a prime example, even though the terrorist was yelling "God is great" in Arabic as he was performing his murderous personal jihad, the picture of what was going on there could not be more clearer, yet the Obama crew classified the incident as an instance of "workplace violence".

And what did the generals who are responsible for force protection say after that? If you remember their response, you should not be surprised at the apparent lack of veracity in David Petraeus´s testimony and statements before Congress.

Obama appointed Susan Rice as the UN Ambassador, IMO, because of her name. In his tiny brain, he probably thought the morons who voted for him wouldn´t know the difference between Susan Rice and Condoleesa Rice - they are both light-skinned black women. He just piggy-backed onto what George W. Bush did by appointing Condoleesa as SOS. The same moron voters don´t know the difference between the UN and SOS.

It is turning out the Susan "ain´t no Condoleesa".

Nothing matters anymore about any of these things. This country is gone - never to be restored again. I don´t even think a civil war would work this time as the country has so many people who want the country to go on the path it is going (down the tubes) so that there is NO return. It does not matter what anyone says or does, Republicans, conservatives, and any other people who love this country. It is gone.....

Advice to Democrats: Don´t say ´recovery´
Associated Press, by David Espo    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/18/2014 10:15:20 AM     Post Reply
WASHINGTON - Election-year memo to Democratic candidates: Don´t talk about the economic recovery. It´s a political loser. So say Democratic strategists in a blunt declaration that such talk skips over "how much trouble people are in, and doesn´t convince them that policymakers really understand or are even focusing on the problems they continue to face." In addition, Stan Greenberg, James Carville and others wrote that in head-to-head polling tests the mere mention of the word "recovery" is trumped by a Republican assertion that the Obama administration has had six years to get the economy moving and its policies haven´t worked. Coincidentally or not,

Iran Gets an Unlikely Visitor, an American

President Obama has warned that Iran is not open for business, even as the United States has loosened some of its punishing economic sanctions as part of an interim nuclear pact. Yet, on Tuesday morning, Iran had an unlikely visitor: a plane, owned by the Bank of Utah, a community bank in Ogden that has 13 branches throughout the state. Bearing a small American flag on its tail, the aircraft was parked in a highly visible section of Mehrabad Airport in Tehran. But from there, the story surrounding the plane, and why it was in Iran — where all but a few

Saying they can no longer ignore the rising prices of health care, some of the most influential medical groups in the nation are recommending that doctors weigh the costs, not just the effectiveness of treatments, as they make decisions about patient care. The shift, little noticed outside the medical establishment but already controversial inside it, suggests that doctors are starting to redefine their roles, from being concerned exclusively about individual patients to exerting influence on how health care dollars are spent. “We understand that we doctors should be and are stewards of the larger society as well as of the patient in

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president. Look at the polls. This week’s Fox News poll has Clinton’s favorable rating at its lowest point in six years. She is at 49 percent favorable, 45 percent unfavorable—similar to her

President Barack Obama used his Thursday press conference to diagnose Republicans as fear-mongering, spiteful, obstinate, petulant and obstructive, as he again declared mission-accomplished in his effort to put the nation’s health-care under government control. “I recognize that their party is going through the stages of grief — anger and denial and all that stuff — and we’re not at acceptance yet,” Obama told reporters, where he announced that his Obamacare network had claimed 8 million subscribers. Obama coupled his passive-voice diatribe with his more-in-sorrow-than-anger promise that he “would much prefer a constructive conversation with the Republicans about how do we get some

The captain of a ferry that sank off the coast of South Korea Wednesday, leaving nearly 300 people missing, is under investigation as a possible criminal and was one of the first people to escape the doomed vessel, Coast Guard officials said. Lee Joon-seok, 69, left the ferry on a lifeboat 32 minutes after reporting an accident, officials said. The captain appeared on Korean television today, his face covered by a gray hoodie. “I am really sorry and deeply ashamed,” he said, as he was being questioned at the Mokpo Coast Guard Office.

CBO shows it’s Paul Ryan 4,

Soon after the tea party era began in Congress in 2011, President Obama and House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan each released their budgets, proposing how much the government should tax and spend over the rest of the decade. Three years into that budget showdown, Mr. Ryan and his Republican colleagues are winning. Government spending has slowed, and Mr. Obama’s plans for higher taxes and higher spending have fallen by the wayside. “The discretionary spending has in fact been driven by Republicans post-2010 clamping down,” said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office who is now president of the

Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups.

Ezra Klein, in his new capacity as one of the impresarios behind Vox, has written a pair of attention-grabbing posts — here, and then here — defending the proposition that Obamacare has, in some sense, “won,” and that conservatives who can’t come to terms with that victory can’t come to terms with reality itself. Reading them, it struck me that this argument would benefit from laying down some specific markers for the near future, because Klein seems to move back and forth between two definitions of success. At times, as when he writes that Obamacare “has won its survival” and

It’s no secret that Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) don’t like one another. They battle regularly over legislation and their Senate floor fights over arcane-but-important rules have become must-see entertainment for senatorial insiders. According to aides in both parties, the two leaders have not had a one-on-one sitdown to discuss legislation (or anything else) since late last year. Nowadays, all business is conducted on the phone or in brief discussions on the Senate floor. Part of that feud is political – Democrats targeted McConnell in 2008, Republicans targeted Reid in 2010, Democrats

Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'
