Fox Analyst Shreds ‘Cowardly,
Duplicitous’ Admin Over Benghazi:
‘Sacrificed American Lives For Politics’

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/8/2013 11:47:07 AM

Ahead of the Benghazi hearings in which three witnesses are set to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade invited Fox News analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters to discuss the issue. Peters was unflinching in his criticism of the “cowardly” Obama administration — and the “establishment media” that aids it. “Is this a national security coverup?” Kilmeade asking, explaining that the witness testimony is expected to say the administration was deceitful in its handling of the situation. “The administration, facing the election, went into panic mode, wanted to contain it,”

Comments:
That pretty much sums it up doesn´t it? When Ralph Peters speaks, I listen. He is a fine, honorable man who speaks the truth.

It would be interesting if Hillary´s career was bookmarked by Watergate and Benghazigate. And hopefully, having the President leave office as before.

Plainly stating “I’m angry,” Peters criticized the administration for “telling so many lies” that “they make Nigerian phone scammers look like paragons of integrity.”

That line says it all..

Love, Honor, Truth

Here we go again. Another congressional hearing, lots of heat but not so much light. At least time-wise. Constricted once again by their little timer clock, we hear more of ´we have to move on´ than we hear details and facts. Kudos to Chmn. Issa as he gave Mr. Hicks unlimited time, but now there´s no ´time´ for anything else except Democrat platform-shouting about how horrible poor little Mzzzzz. Hilarious has been ´slandered´ and how Chmn. Issa himself has LIED ON TV.

There was too much time between planning and scheduling this hearing, and today´s hearing. We´re getting nothing but b.s. out of the Democrats, their talking points, and their so-called questions. How many times can they interrupt a cogent response to an incoherent question, once that answer makes them sticky in their pannies and they have to cut it off.

I may have said this before, but I officially despise liberals and Democrats. They´re all speaking from Hillary´s notes.

And boo to C-Span for not covering this hearing. They show it on their C-Span3 listing, but their channel 3 is not available. 1 and 2 are, Radio is, but not 3.

Shame on C-Span. I have it on FoxNews as live feed because Fox News keeps interrupting so they can hear THEMSELVES talk about what THEY heard and how THEY interpret. Boos to them too, but thanks for having it on their website.

In the effort to communicate with liberals, it seems we have forgotten to factor this in: that life to all progressives is cheaper than it is to non-progressives. That goes for the life of this country. That goes for the life of a soldier. That goes for the life of all children of the next generation and the one after that. These are dead souls, or souls with a dying "faith tradition." They cannot really understand love because they do not know the God of Love, who said "Greater love hath no man than that he lay down his life for his brother."

BTW - I have always imagined what Reagan would have done to Libya and the Muslim thugs.

He would have wiped them out, saved whomever he could, stayed awake until everyone was safe, THEN, held a press conference to warn other Muslims.

That´s what an AMERICAN President DOES.

It does not matter what anyone of high up men say - they will be shredded to pieces. This country is no truthful country anymore. We are being ruled by socialists and there is no turning back.

I am so angry, so sad the continue lies of this administration and those in Congress. American citizens were killed and it matters, they could have been saved but politicians allowed them to be killed by terrorists. I want to scream at them, I want to punch them in the face and tell them to start acting like citizens of the United States and not some two bit apologist for this administration. The same goes for the media, stop protecting this administration, this administration will allow you to be killed to save their butts from any criticism. Start thinking of the country and it´s citizens!

Thanks, ## 25 and 26, I might check it out. Although, I am so disappointed by the mild comments even here, that I´m thinking it isn´t worth the time. The only media comments I´ve heard so far were from the dense and traitorous Erick Erickson, who almost didn´t even address it this afternoon, and when he did chalked it up to incompetence. Baldface lying to the American public does not fall under the purview of incompetence last time I checked.

Very frustrating to have this seemingly fizzle like this...

Here´s how I think this happened:

The Libyan Ambassador did or said something that ticked off Hitlery. We know from other sources that she has a short fuse, a giant ego and a long grudge-bearing temper. The Libyan Embassy either did not get required security or had it pulled to teach him a lesson. She probably smugly gloated each time she turned down his requests for security, imagining him sweating bullets while she, in her ivory tower ´knew´ he was safe enough, as Obama had killed Osama, and ousted Qaddaffi and the Libyans ´loved´ the Administration.

While I personally think they had advance warning, hence the Egyptian Embassy´s odd apology for that unknown video, but in any case, the attack was coming and Hitlery had no way to stop it without revealing to everyone the games she was playing with people´s lives. Worse, the attack came to Obama´s attention during his meeting with Panetta. He shrugged, said, "This isn´t MY fault - deal with it, I have an election to run..." and went to bed, leaving the ball in Hitlery and Panetta´s hands.

They dithered, then after confirming that any response by counter-terrorism would let the cat out of the bag, decided to cut their losses and let the Al Qaida terrorists slaughter Stevens and his staff. No witnesses meant easier to sweep under the rug. The video was either a planned or convenient excuse for this coverup...

...except some troublesome heroes defied orders to stand down and who gave their lives to save the consulate staff (leaving numerous witnesses) caused it to blow up in their faces. With the help of the media, they managed to put a lid on it till after the elections. Now they are rapidly approaching true tyranny to survive.

No. 30. I like your Hitlery theory. It starts to answer my question of WHY? Why did certain people want the Amb dead? I don´t believe the other theories that the Powers are lazy, incompetent, or dull and that´s why they did nothing.

I think there is a more sinister motive, and your Hitlery angle is a nice start, IMHO.

Next he knew hillary was just as eager to make political points and set her up to take the fall.
finally they lied after Americans died.

Hillary should get plenty of blame for the deaths of those four Americans, and for the cover-up. I do wonder what Huma Abedin´s role was in all this--she has serious ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Researchers at Princeton and Northwestern universities have pored over 1,800 US policies and concluded that America is an oligarchy. Instead of looking out for the majority of the country’s citizens, the US government is ruled by the interests of the rich and the powerful, they found. No great surprises there, then. But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined. Some 2,400 miles away from Washington, in Silicon Valley, Google is aggressively gaining power with little to keep it in check.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?
