Republican probe of Benghazi
attacks turns to Hillary Clinton

Washington Post, by Philip Rucker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 5/8/2013 6:52:16 AM

Republican lawmakers, who have spent months seeking to tie President Obama to last year’s deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, are increasingly focusing their probe on a new target: former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton. The GOP-led investigation of the Sept. 11, 2012, assaults that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others now centers heavily on the State Department and whether officials there deliberately misled the public about the nature of the assault. Three State Department officials are scheduled to testify before a House committee on Wednesday about the Benghazi attack and its aftermath.

How much is obama paying you Philip? If you ever decide to remove your lips from obama´s cheeks, there is a product that will neutralize the superglue that is attaching you to obama. It is called acetone.

{Just doing my part to help the sycophants that surround obama.)

Hmmmmm, the embassies are a State Department function, HRC was Secretary of State. What was the "lawmakers" first clue in making the connection? She will eventually take the fall, but Fuzzhead, being CIC of the armed forces that never made the show, is the real criminal.

And don´t let the media say that this is a political witchhunt by Republicans.

Obama made this a "Political" item, when he decided it was better to cover it up to win an election !!!!

Limbaugh theorem - Before Obama went to bed he told Hillary and Panetta to handle it so what happened can´t possibly be his fault! I know nothing will happen to any of them. I don´t know how they can sleep at night having let those Americans die just to protect a Presidential campaign. Life has always been cheap to leftists. The ends justifies the means in practice. Very sad days in America.

Amen #1!!!!! Philip Rucker just made a donkey´s butt of himself. How dare the Republican lawmakers tie the President of the United States and Secretary of State to the "US diplomatic mission in Benghazi". Zero and Hillary are responsible for much more important issues, like anti-Islam videos and gay basketball players, and such!

Nice job Philip Rucker and Washington Post. Not.

Just read that Brian Williams is one of THE most trusted newsmen in America, which is a LOL JOKE! I will put $ on it,that he, and his fellow main stream media t.v. and newspaper folk only mention this hearing to batter the whistle blowers and to provide cover for Hillary and Obama. The very FACT that Obama signed off at 5 p.m. on 9/11 last year and went to bed so he could be fresh for a Texas fundraiser the next morning says it all. Williams may be "trusted" but you have to ask, trusted by whom? Not by anyone who is the slightest bit informed, which is why I never bother with network news anymore.

“They’re [Republicans] no longer going after the White House, perhaps because the president’s not running for reelection, and they’re going after the former secretary of state, perhaps because she will be.”

It´s staggering how Democrats never, never imagine that another Democrat could actually be at fault. To them, it´s always mean, nasty Republicans out to score political points.

Have Democrats looked in the mirror recently regarding their smears on Palin, Bachmann, Allen West, Clarence Thomas, Romney, Dr. Carson et al? The slightest scent that a conservative will run for POTUS brings out the long knives -- it doesn´t matter that the candidates may be good for America. If they´re bad for liberalism, that´s all that matters.

Notice how the writer portrays the Republicans as nothing but political all the way thru the story? It´s not that the administration is hiding something, you understand; it´s that the Republicans are trying to stir things up for political gain! Flip the sides and the Dems would be portrayed as just wanting to get to the truth while the Republicans would be the stonewallers. It´s how it´s done in The Post.

I lived in the D.C. area in 1972-74 and I read this same newspaper´s daily reporting on what became known as Watergate.
What I don´t remember was the WaPo reporting how Democrats were ´seeking to tie´ Nixon to the break-in or ´focusing their probe on a new target.´
Benghazi´s being reported as a political witchhunt. Watergate was reported as the righteous hunt for truth and the American Way.
Media bias goes way, way back.

They´ll use classic socialist dodges. If they can´t win on facts and timelines they´ll try to eclipse with other agenda, project, say it´s a witch hunt, it´s because Hillary is (kind of) a woman, investigation is only because she´s running for president. After all the lies she´s already been caught in, she and her cronies have quite a bit of mopping up to do. ´ can´t wait to hear Elijah Cummings and the sad-brow face, in Academy Award mode for his usual "in the name of humanity" disposition on investigations into Democrats. Heartless, just heartless, lol.

I believe that Clinton certainly did leave office over Benghazi. Hopefully the Repubs will be aggressive. The butt kissing foreplay/speeches will hopefully not be so prevalent this time-hard to take.

Hillary is like Darth Vader tumbling in outer space in a damaged space capsule, just waiting. Oh she´s coming back, definitely coming back, once she thinks she´s out of harms way.

No, the Obama media has turned to covering for Hillary Clinton. The Republican probe is focusing on questioning the witnesses that were there, rather than listening to the WH and State Dept, who were not.

How far will reporters go to protect this administration? Here is an example.
Last night, Andrea Mitchell was on Chrissie Matthews, and she said that the request for a show of force by having an F 16 flyover was impossible to accomplish, because ´it takes a couple of hours to get an F 16 into the air.´
That is so stupid, it amazes me. We had F 16 aircraft into the air in a couple of minutes, flown by Air National Guard pilots, on 9/11/01, who had been authorized to shoot down the aircraft that crashed in Pennsylvania. Every military unit has pilots and aircraft ready to scramble and take off.
Shame on you, Andrea. An shame on you, Chrissie, for not correcting Andrea.

Typical WaPo tripe. They are trying to stop a train that´s left the station. Their feeble attempt to shape the story...

"The GOP-led investigation of the Sept. 11, 2012, assaults that killed U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others now centers heavily on the State Department and whether officials there deliberately misled the public about the nature of the assault."
"To Democrats, the efforts amount to a baseless and less-than-subtle crusade..."

Sorry. It´s about much more than the aftermath. All this proves to me is that Democrats and their media are all complicit.

The story here philip of the washington compost -- is the narrative was manufactured to help obama get re/elected. IF the truth about the murder of our Americans in Benghazi had been told -- he would never have won...

So congratulations you got him re/elected -- and now -- you are trying to take the heat of the "what difference does it make" candidate...

It makes a BIG difference. It´s called competent leaders....

Watergate was about a silly little break in and no one died. This cover up should be bipartisan, and probably is, but the lame stream press won´t report it that way. This is not a witch hunt but to find out why 4 Americans were left behind to die. And it does matter.

Nothing will touch Obama or Hillary in this,. They will work someway to get around it. The whole bunch of them as guilty as they can be, but it will never come to be known. They will talk their way out of it. It has been happening ever since they have been there and this will not stop them. The Republicans will let them get away with anything and this time next week, they will be the winners.

Please, someone, before I reach for a barf bag, tell me I´m not reading what I´m reading:

"If Hillary Clinton is not responsible for the before, during and after mistakes... it´s somebody close," Issa said. "There certainly are plenty of people close to the former secretary who knew, and apparently were part of the problem."

http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-250_162-57583388/benghazi-whistleblowers-head-to-house-committee/

If Hillary is not responsible??? After the gallons of ink expended over the last week on how Hillary is going to pilloried for Benghazi, am I seeing Issa unlocking the back door so PIAPS can make a run for it?

The focus needs to be (1) finding out who committed the slahter AND (2) understanding why our government´s response to the crisis was so incredibly poor.

On the first point: No one has been brought to justice so far -- and it´s been "so long ago" that his happened, according to the White House spokesperson.

On the second point: We cannot yet learn from mistakes made, and therefore prevent it from happening again (something Hillary says she wants to do), BECAUSE the administration refuses to be forthcoming with the details of what occurred.

The politics here is being played in largest part by the Democrats and their defenders in the LSM. The Republicans may play politics with it, but that is secondary or tertiary to finding out THE TRUTH!

By-the-way, scandals SHOULD have political consequences for the bad actors. Hillary should pay a political price, if not a legal one.

I guess the Washington Post is uninterested in the truth.

If the truth and nothing but the truth had been provided by the Obama Administration there would be no need for investigations and Congressional Hearings.

Truth is subject to no statute of limitations and no political bias. The left does not acknowledge that truth, based on facts and logic, is more important than promoting their failed ideological vision.

Two quotes from the great Thomas Sowell come to mind:

"It’s bad enough that so many people believe things without any evidence. What is worse is that some people have no conception of evidence and regard facts as just someone else´s opinion."

and

"It is usually futile to try to talk facts and analysis to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance."

The mission in this madness has yet to be fully explained. What was being undertaken in Benghazi was not consulate business.
They were arming the Muslim Brotherhood, aka Syrian rebels, with Quadaffi´s leftover weapons, bought and collected in the warehouses on the compound. Chris Stephens was the bagman. The buyers in the MB kidnapped the Ambassador, raped him, stole the weapons and the money. Now was that also part of the plan, the excuse, and was he sacrificied to make it happen?
Will the ten foot pole be long enough to touch this? I don´t think so.

One big problem with Congressional investigations is that the questions are ask by lifetime politicians. And their questions are generally phrased with political overtones. If Issa really wanted to get to the bottom of things, he would hire a good, conservative, prosecutor to do the questioning. Someone who is accustomed to asking probing question of witnesses. But, they never do. So it all ends up being a political showcase. Sad.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. 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. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

Book: White House scrambled

Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

AUSTIN, Tex. — The last nine months of Rick Perry’s tenure as the longest-serving governor of Texas were supposed to be a political victory lap. Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

Earlier today, Judicial Watch made public a batch of documents that it received from the IRS in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

I am still working my way through the emails, but have a few preliminary observations. First, the most significant ones I have seen so far have already been widely discussed.

On the Wednesday, April 16, PoliticsNation on MSNBC, far left host Al Sharpton berated what he viewed as "extreme" and "intolerant radical views" of Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and North Carolina as he highlighted comments that he considered "offensive." Guest Jonathan Capehart of the Washington Post went so far as to hyperbolically suggest that the GOP is "going to cease to exist" unless Republican Party leaders who are "aghast at the far-right extremists" do not react against these candidates.

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will headline a SHE-PAC rally in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 27th for conservative Iowa Senate candidate Joni Ernst, who has taken a two-point lead over a liberal Republican businessman who had been leading before Palin endorsed Ernst. The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

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

Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren wrote in her forthcoming book that she was “hurt” and “angry” by 2012 reporting on her fraudulent claim to Native American heritage. “What really threw me, though, were the constant attacks from the other side,” Warren wrote in her book “A Fighting Chance.” “I would almost persuade myself that I was starting to get the hang of full-throttle campaigning and then — bam! Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No
