State Department-sponsored review of
Libya attack finished, in Clinton´s hands

Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 12/17/2012 11:17:55 PM

The State Department-sponsored report examining the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi is complete and in Secretary Hillary Clinton´s hands. State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland on Monday confirmed that the report went to Clinton earlier in the day. Though Clinton is no longer expected to testify before Congress this Thursday on the Benghazi attack, due to a purported concussion sustained last week, the leaders of the investigating panel are expected to brief lawmakers on Wednesday. Senior State Department officials William Burns and Thomas Nides are

Comments:
Suffering from a "concussion" is not stopping PIAPS from getting her hoove-prints all over the Benghazi findings before they are made public. This is akin to a prosecuting attorney giving the murder suspect all his information and possible direction in questioning before trial begins.

Yes, it is State Department-sponsored report, so what is the point of hearings? Just read it into the Congressional record and move on. Any testimony will just be more obfuscation to protect Herself.

She is required to respond to the review. So even if she doesn´t testify she has to publicly answer any questions raised. Or she can fall off a ladder and oh no, she´s suffered another concussion.

Pickering and Burns are pretty much toadies, I doubt they´ll allow any gory details to emerge.

So the independent review has to go Clinton for editing. Then she sends it on to Obama for his edit. Then it goes back to the independent review to be given the final date.

The Hildebeast faked a concussion so she would have ample time to edit the report and strike any mention of her and her girlfriend Huma.

It´ll be the same as the injustice dept´s internal review of fast and furious which exonerated Holder and the ATF of any wrongdoing.

When the left does get cornered they throw out the term "lessons learned" to make people think they cleaned up their act in the face of a debacle.

I´ll bet the ambassador´s parents could shed some light on this as I´m sure they got emails from him about the lack of security but for some reason,they´ve remained mum. Maybe their bank account swolled.

At the end of the day this situation will be declared much ado about nothing.

The other Americans who escaped the attack are in an underground dungeon somewhere.

It has already been stated that this is a classified Tiinternal investigation and only a summary of the investigation, written by hillary, will be released.

This is a cover up, nothing else.

The lush is "hiding" in her NY home she bought so she could conduct a "listening tour" of the state and "slide" into a Senate seat that should have been won by a New Yorker who knew the turf.....

She´s a coat/tail riding drinker who falls down a lot because she can´t hold her wine/time.....

She´s like all the other boomers who believe they are entitled to someone else´s hard work. AND when confronted with a "real" job like Benshazi, fall down on the job, i.e. obama and biden and big sis......

The clintons should be forced to live in Benghazi and deal with the survivors. Neither of them are worth shooting and I feel that way about most dems. Crooks, liars and tax raising lovers. Term limits - the Hawaian senator that just died was in the senate for too long, although, I do respect his service. Never really trusted a Japanese after WWII.

Sen Inouye passed away yesterday after serving in the Senate since 1963. Almost 50 years and during that time he served on the Senate´s select committee investigating the Waterhgate scandal and also as the chairman of the committee that investigatd Iran Contra. Oh wait - no one died from either scandal...

Hillary will probably see her stomach flu return and she´ll upchuck on the report.

The attempted Benghazi coverup would be amusing if people had not died due to government incompetence.

We have a so-called president who is a smooth, accomplished but unconvincing liar and a secstate who isn´t qualified to run a cash register at Wal-Mart. We have an Iranian harpy who really runs the country and an attorney general who is one of the worst criminals in the country. It´s a ship of fools in the middle of a whirlpool.

I don´t believe Obama or Hillary are hands on with anything. I still believe what we will eventually find is another dereliction of duty. She parties over here and Obama parties over there with both oblivious to what is going on. He campaigns nonstop and she and Huma are clinking wine glasses around the world. It worked out for Bin Laden, where the SEALs did a great job, but this one (whatever the spooks were doing) went bad. I wouldn´t doubt if both of them DID believe it was a reaction to a video. I´ll be watching, like everyone else, to see what happens.

US President Barack Obama’s visit to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia comes at a crucial moment for one of the Middle East’s most enduring strategic alliances. (Snip) It is no secret that the Saudis are extremely unhappy with the interim agreement currently in place, in which Iran gains some 7 billion dollars of sanctions relief for doing nothing but slowing down its nuclear enrichment program. The problem was compounded by the discovery that Washington had been holding secret communications it held with Iranian negotiators in the Sultanate of Oman without the knowledge of either Israel and Saudi Arabia, after having

Riyadh - US President Barack Obama is visiting Saudi Arabia on Friday following a tour of European capitals earlier this week, in order to reassure the Washington’s Arab allies of its commitment to the region. Obama is set to meet with Saudi King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in Riyadh, (Snip) The visit comes at a sensitive time for the Middle East. This is the first time Obama has visited Saudi Arabia since the ouster of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak in 2011 and comes amid regional divisions over the Muslim Brotherhood.

Washington - Investigators dubbed them "the librarians," four Air Force nuclear missile launch officers at the center of a still-unfolding scandal over cheating on proficiency tests. "They tended to be at the hub" of illicit exchanges of test information, said Adam Lowther, one of seven investigators who dug into details of cheating that has embarrassed the Air Force and on Thursday brought down virtually the entire operational command of the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont. At least 82 missile launch officers face disciplinary action, but it was the four "librarians" who allegedly facilitated the cheating,

As Obama meets the pope,
Francis´ smile masks a serious message
Los Angeles Times, by Doyle McManus    Original Article

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

Obama Invites Pope Francis

Rome - Meeting for the first time today, President Obama personally “invited and urged” Pope Francis to visit the United States, telling him “people would be overjoyed to see him.” If the pope were to accept the president’s invitation, it would be his first visit to the United States as pope. Earlier this month, House Speaker John Boehner also invited the pope to address a joint meeting of Congress — something no pope has ever done. Speaking at a joint news conference with Prime Minister Renzi today, Obama said it was a “great honor” to meet the pope and that they had a wide-ranging discussion that centered on

The number two Republican in the Senate is lambasting a media “shield law” proposed by New York Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer, potentially imperiling its shot at passage. “This is a bad idea and one whose time has not come,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX), the Senate minority whip, told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “Believe me, we will not be rolled over.” Schumer’s “Free Flow of Information Act” passed the Senate Judiciary Committee in September, and he recently said he already has the 60 votes needed to pass the bill on the floor. “We’ll get a few more Republicans, not many more, but we have the 60 votes,” Schumer

Washington - The Air Force fired nine mid-level nuclear commanders Thursday and will discipline dozens of junior officers at a nuclear missile base in response to an exam-cheating scandal that spanned a far longer period than originally reported. Air Force officials called the moves unprecedented in the history of the intercontinental ballistic missile force, which has been rocked by a string of security lapses over the past year, including a failed safety and security inspection last summer at Malmstrom Air Force Base, Mont., where the cheating happened.

Three members of the U.S. Secret Service’s counter assault team were sent home from President Obama’s trip to Europe this week after one was allegedly found passed out in the hallway of a Netherlands hotel where the president would be staying the following night. The incident has embarrassed the agency and is a stain on the reputation of one of the Secret Service’s most elite and demanding units, known internally as “CAT," which accepts only a sliver of those who audition for a position.

Kiev - Ukrainian former prime minister Yulia Tymoshenko, released from jail last month after her arch-foe Viktor Yanukovich fled from power, said on Thursday she would run again for president in an election on May 25. She also pledged to build a strong army and said she hoped to be able to recover Crimea from Russia, which annexed it last week. The announcement by the flamboyant Tymoshenko set up a contest with boxer-turned-politician Vitaly Klitschko, who has also declared his candidacy, and other figures who have emerged to contend for top posts after four months of political turmoil.

President Obama and Pope Francis spoke at length about shared concerns on foreign policy and income inequality during their historic meeting at the Vatican, President Obama said Thursday. But the pope and other Vatican officials also raised social issues, including the birth-control mandate in ObamaCare and abortion, the Vatican said. Obama told reporters that "the largest bulk of the time" was spent discussing two central concerns of the pope: growing inequality and "how elusive peace is around the world." (Snip) Obama also said gay marriage and LGBT rights — two other areas where the president is on the opposite side

California state Sen. Leland Yee (D) was arrested Wednesday at his home in San Francisco and accused of — among many, many other things — offering to procure some seriously illegal weapons. The irony: Yee was one of the driving forces behind some of the toughest gun-control legislation in the country during his tenure in the state Senate. (Snip) This year, Yee introduced two more gun-control bills. One, S.B. 108, would have required the Justice Department to study local safe storage ordinances that prevent children from getting access to their parents’ weapons. Another, S.B. 47, would have expanded California’s ban

Republicans need to pick up six Senate seats in November to win back the majority. Thanks primarily to heavy spending from the Koch brothers-backed Americans For Prosperity, the GOP has been lapping Democrats over the airwaves in many of the states where the majority could be won or lost. With one notable exception: Alaska. Because of the relatively cheap cost of advertising in the sparsely populated state, Democrats have largely kept up with Republicans in the Last Frontier. According to data provided a Democrat tracking the ad buys, total Democratic spending has been about $1.5 million, while the GOP has

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s.

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.

One by one, the myths of the Affordable Care Act have been revealed. When the curtain on open enrollment falls on March 31, the last remaining big myth of ObamaCare will be fully exposed: The individual mandate has failed. After a last-ditch effort with President Obama himself encouraging "young invincibles" to sign up before the deadline, the administration is scrambling to boost enrollment. On Tuesday, the White House announced that people who applied for coverage on the federal health-insurance exchange will have until mid-April to finish the paperwork. The mandate was supposed to be the administration´s magical elixir for the assorted shortcomings

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Their target is the GOP, but they are not angry liberals bent on destroying it. They are reform-minded Republican leaders intent on strengthening it. These Republicans are applying conservative principles to 21st-century challenges, focused on middle-class concerns like lowering costs and improving access to college, modernizing health care and reforming the tax code. They aim to broaden prosperity´s reach through markets and merit, not government and corporate cronyism. They´re also concentrating on helping the poor by changing Washington´s dizzying assortment of antipoverty programs to emphasize work and make the safety net more effective and sustainable.
