Administration Relying on Shoddy
Benghazi Report to Absolve Itself of Blame

Weekly Standard, by Victoria Toensing

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 5/12/2013 11:42:56 AM

The White House has touted the Accountability Review Board (ARB) investigation of the Benghazi massacre as a review “led by two men of unimpeachable expertise and credibility that oversaw a process that was rigorous and unsparing.” In fact, the report was purposefully incomplete and willfully misleading. The two men in charge of the ARB, Ambassador Thomas Pickering and Admiral Thomas Mullen, a diplomat and military man respectively, have no meaningful investigative experience. Instead of letting the facts lead the direction of the investigation, the report appears designed to protect the interests of Hillary Clinton, the State Department higher ups,

And Hitlery had the ability to lie to the faces of the four murdered Americans´ families and say it was because of a crummy Youtube video. Obviously she has no shame or integrity.

Pickering is the male Susan Rice.
A willing tool to protect Hilary and Zippy from their failure to protect Amb.Stevens, Smith, Woods and Doherty
Mullen failed his men.

Just write it off as shoddy and sloppy report writing. Blame the typist clerk that put this gibberish out ok. Just like Sandy Burglar stealing top secret docs from the National Archives. Just a sloppy man, you should see his desk, the guy can´t find his car keys and wallet sometimes. How those papers ended up in his socks and underwear is anybody´s guess. This is what happens when you rely on incompetent uneducated union government employees. Sheeesh. How can anyone blame Bambo and Hilda for this shoddy sloppy work?!
I am stunned! This person needs to be fired immediately!

The ARB appears to be a joke and those who wrote it sold their souls to the devel and should be ashamed of their performance. I have noticed recently that many generals no longer stand up for the ethical standards of those who came before them. I have also noticed that the ethical standards of the o administration no longer exist either. If you voted for o time to check your own ethical stanards.

In addition, the Obama-bunch have refused to allow any of the survivors of the attack on Benghazi to testify. The ARB found out nothing about the back and forth concerning the "explanations" provided by Susan Rice, but somehow Steven Hayes from the Weekly Standard could? Pickering and Mullins embarrassed themselves. They, were played.

Perhaps the reason why Hillary could not respond for seven hours during the Benghazi massacre was because she was drunk.

I hate to say it but nothing will come of this.

Summer Stock on the Potomac continues. On a slow Friday afternoon the WH holds a closed door pre-briefing of selected members of the "press corps". Monday the Drude headlines are "Press Corps Turns On Benghazi" and "Now There Is Something To It" with Klein comparing obama to Nixon.

Don´t be mislead. This is just a smoke screen to entertain you. In the end the man child is still the adored super president and cankles is president in waiting.

Enjoy the show.

Once again, I saw a show on Friday with an ex CIA agent who helped guard then Ambassador Pickering in S. America many years ago and when HE was threatened they TRIPLED his protection, something Pickering was fine with. So what a hypocrite the man is, as is Mullen. I wonder when it will seep into their brains that they have now planted the seeds for THEIR legacies, what they will be remembered for, with this shoddy investigation.

I disagree that "nothing will come of this".

4 people were murdered and our Gov´t allowed it to happen because they didn´t want Benghazi to effect the election.

It´s a failure of the media to investigate. I think the media has been proven without a shadow of doubt that they are inept and proven they are an arm of the DNC and White House.

It´s time for the Gov´t to clean house, media must fire those who are inept to try to restore their reputation. I do not and will not trust journalists.

It´s the OBAMA Administration. We need to say it until it sinks into the head of every idiot who voted for him and continues to worship him.

The Benghazi incident will not die unless we let it. We have their feet to the fire and we need to keep pushing them closer until they scream.

What the media can´t accept is the fact that their beloved Hillary and he who shall not be named in any wrong-doing are being exposed at best as incompetents and at worst, sociopaths. The media will prop up the administration´s stooges, Pickering and Mullen, and hail them as the absolute authority on what transpired in Bemghazi. They have to in order to keep the narrative on point. What they didn´t count on was the integrity of the whistleblowers. Truth has the power to bring this administration to its knees. The republic deserves it and the American people should demand it.

#20 yes it´s something bigger. The people in Benghazi could have been saved.
It was a CIA middle east gun running of Gahdaffi´s arsenal Fast and Furious operation to Syrian rebels. Ambassador Stevens was the key and could bring all of them down like Dean in Watergate did. Obama had to let him die. Thus the stand down order, twice, and then retired to bed.
Obama and Clinton are complicit in the Benghazi murders.

I am very hopeful that both Benghazi and the IRS scandal will bring down Our Dear Reader and begin the slow process of restoring the Presidency. The reason I say this is that someone very wealthy and very motivated must be behind the scenes. Who is paying Toensing´s and DeGenova´s fees? Senior State employees don´t have that kind of money.

The ARB report is yet another layer of the onion in this mess. Pickering and Mullen are perfumed princes sent on a CYA mission. The IG is now probing their investigation and several others as well. Apparently, this sort of whitewash has been going on for some time in the IG’s view.

Their heart is often in the right place but anyone who has gained high military rank has become comfortable with the ways of huge bureaucracy.

Free markets abhor large, intrusive, pettifogging, empire building bureaucrats.

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

Former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards returned to the courtroom in North Carolina this week. Edwards, before entering politics as a senator from North Carolina, shot to prominence as a personal injury lawyer in the state and restarted his practice late last year. In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case. The Virginia boy was three months old during a hospital visit in 2009 and “the hospital is accused of failing to ensure the baby received adequate oxygen, resulting in a brain injury,” according to

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

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

"Information you choose to share with the White House (directly and via third party sites) may be treated as public information," the new policy says. The Obama Administration also promises not to sell the data of online visitors.

“Fast N’ Loud” host Richard Rawlings has found what he calls the car industry’s “Holy Grail” — the first two Pontiac Firebirds ever built. Called simply “#1” and “#2,” the prototypes were manufactured by Pontiac engineers and were used as models for the 1967 Firebird, which revolutionized the world of sporty “muscle cars” when it rolled off the assembly line. “We found the cars in a garage in Connecticut,” says Rawlings. “They were in a dilapidated barn and are the very first Firebirds .?.?. they were hand-made .?.?. and were used by GM to decide if they wanted to build the Firebird.” Discovery

What Happened to the Tea Party?

It has been five years since the Tea Party movement broke out as a national phenomenon. It began, of course, with Rick Santelli’s “rant heard ’round the world” in February of 2009, which brought widespread attention to the idea of a modern revival of the revolutionary anti-tax fervor behind the Boston Tea Party. But the early rallies were small and largely attracted the same old die-hard right-wing activists, rather than drawing in new people. I didn’t know whether the Tea Party would become a real phenomenon until April 15, 2009—Tax Day being a perfect time to protest big government—when there were hundreds

Conakry, Guinea -- It´s hard not to be nervous, standing outside the Ebola isolation wards. The wards are a cluster of unassuming white tents in the middle of a large field, not far from the center of the city. Each is just big enough to hold around 10 cots.

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.

The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years.

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'
