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.

House Democrats are rolling out a new strategy to target 30 House Republicans on immigration reform during the two-week congressional recess, marking a last-ditch effort to force GOP action on a legislative overhaul. The new pressure tactic includes a memo distributed to those 30 districts held by Republicans who have expressed public support for some sort of immigration reform, many of them backing a pathway to citizenship for millions of undocumented immigrants in the United States. Democrats hope the document — which highlights statements made by those Republicans in favor of reform, as well as data showing the district-specific economic

Is Scott Walker on his way to
2016 front-runner status?

Scott Walker has a 16 point lead (56-40) among likely voters in his race for governor, according to a poll from Wisconsin Public Radio/St. Norbert’s. Among registered voters, his lead is essentially the same (55-40). The survey was conducted between March 24 and April 3. A Marquette University survey conducted between March 20-23 also showed Walker with a nice, though smaller, lead. In that poll, Walker outdistanced Democrat Mary Burke 48-41. Revealingly, Walker fares well in an electorate that does not seem particularly conservative and that, if anything, appears to be slightly to the left of American voters in general.

UC Irvine Should Immediately Rescind

Note: This post was inspired by the #DropDropbox campaign. On March 20 the University of California, Irvine, announced that Barack Obama will give the commence address to its class of 2014. This is deeply disturbing, and anyone—or any university—who values ethics should be concerned. Why is this? Because he was part of the failed Obama administration? Because he is a Democrat and we should hate Democrats? No. This is not an issue of partisanship. It makes sense that UC Irvine would want an accomplished, high-level, well-connected individual as their commencement speaker. There is no doubt that Barack Obama is an

When Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Steve Israel (N.Y.) was asked Sunday whether he thinks his Republican colleagues are racist, he responded with a frankness that is rare in politics and even less common when it comes to sensitive issues like race. "Not all of them, no, of course not," Israel said on CNN´s "State of the Union." "But to a significant extent, the Republican base does have elements that are animated by racism. And that´s unfortunate." Israel´s not the only high-ranking Democrat to advance some version of that argument recently. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said that Republican reluctance

In 2009, in the earliest weeks of President Barack Obama‘s administration, the White House made the controversial decision to take the unprecedented step of moving the Census Bureau from control of the commerce secretary over to the White House ahead of the decennial 2010 census. Conservatives sounded alarm bells. “It takes something that is supposedly apolitical like the census, and gives it to a guy who is infamously political,” said Rep. Rob Bishop (R-UT) of then White House Chief of Staff Rham Emanuel. “Requiring the Census director to report directly to White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is a

Just in time for tax deadline day, a new Gallup poll finds that a majority of Americans -- 52 percent -- say they pay too much federal income tax, while 42 percent say they amount they pay is "about right." Three percent said their federal taxes are "too low." Gallup says the percentage who say their taxes are "too high" has hovered around 50 percent since 2003, although the current 52 percent is up from the 46 percent who said "too high" two years ago. While a slim majority of Americans say their federal tax burden is too high, roughly the

At this point it might take a dead body to get the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) networks to give the IRS-Tea Party scandal any sort of real coverage. Huge developments in the last week – like IRS official Lois Lerner receiving a criminal referral from the House Ways and Means Committee and e-mails proving she fed tax information on a targeted group to the staff of Rep. Elijah Cummings (D) – were completely censored by ABC and NBC news. Only a 90 second report on Thursday’s CBS This Morning kept last week’s revelations from being totally blacked out on

He’s not “unknown”, and he didn’t just pop up on the horizon. The alleged killer of three at the Overland Park (Kansas) Jewish Community Center and a nearby Jewish retirement home didn’t just “appear out of nowhere”; he’s a man who has been in the public eye before, right here in the Kansas City area and elsewhere, along with his foaming-at-the-mouth anti-Jewish and white supremacist views. The suspect, identified as Frazier Glenn Cross of Aurora, Missouri, is also known as Frazier Glenn Miller or simply Glenn Miller. As Glenn Miller, he ran for the U.S. Senate from Missouri in 2010.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no."

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box.

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

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

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
