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.

Beware "Conservative" military types.

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.

KLAS-TV [Las Vegas, NV], by Nathan Baca    Original Article

LAS VEGAS -- Federal authorities remain silent about their next plans to confront Cliven Bundy at his Bunkerville ranch. Both sides are fighting over history, with federal courts denying Bundy´s claims of "ancestral rights" on the Virgin River valley. The I-Team dug into century-old records to examine Bundy´s claims. At the Bunkerville camp next to Cliven Bundy´s ranch, there are constant reminders of history. Revolutionary War flags, ancient Greek mottos and native American symbols, all mixing together to create a growing identity and narrative for protestors. This land is unusually fertile and green for southern Nevada. Cliven Bundy grows melons there. They are said

The Supreme Court let states ban race as a factor in college admissions. That’s a good first step toward race-blind education that can focus on root problems. Shortly before his assassination President Kennedy addressed the nation on June 11, 1963 to explain his decision to federalize the Alabama National Guard to integrate the University of Alabama. In part, Kennedy offered: It ought to be possible in short for every American to enjoy the privileges of being an American, without regard to his race or his color. In short, every American ought to have the right to be treated, as he or she

Ed already brought you up to date on the SCOTUS decision regarding the Michigan referendum that ended affirmative action in college admissions, so if you happened to miss the story, read that first. It was one of the more raucous decisions in a while, with plenty of twists and turns in terms of who went with the majority or the dissent and what they said. But the Washington Examiner dug a bit deeper later in the day, finding what amounted to a bit of a slug-fest in the footnotes between Sonia Sotomayor and Antonin Scalia. The scuffle erupted over Sotomayor’s not

Angry atheists are at it again. This week, they’re taking on Dabo Swinney, head coach of the Clemson Tigers. His alleged unlawful conduct? Expressing his Christian faith and allegedly making a number of voluntary religious activities available to his players -- the adult student-athletes at Clemson. The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation sent Clemson University a “letter of complaint” detailing Swinney’s alleged constitutional violations, including such atrocities as the team’s volunteer chaplain writing Bible verses on a whiteboard and the team making available bus transportation to players who wish to attend church. In a reasonable constitutional world, this complaint would be ignored by

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A North Carolina prosecutor was the original target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor´s father by mistake, an indictment released Tuesday said. Nine people were charged in the kidnapping of 63-year-old Frank Janssen, the father of Wake Forest Assistant District Attorney Colleen Janssen. Frank Janssen was abducted April 5 from his Wake Forest home and held captive for five days in Atlanta before being rescued by the FBI. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen´s prosecution of Kelvin Melton, a

For the sake of argument, The Scrapbook is willing to concede that it is possible that Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher, ought to be allowed to graze his cattle on federal land in Nye County. And that protecting the desert tortoise as an endangered species on that same federal land is no good reason to impose a fee for grazing livestock. Reasonable people can disagree about these issues, and will do so. But in the United States of America, since 1789, we have had ways of settling these disputes.

Members of the Sierra Club’s board of directors are driving around in gas-guzzling vehicles, despite the group’s support for the Obama administration’s increased fuel efficiency standards. The Sierra Club strongly supported the Obama administration’s increase in minimum fuel economy standards to 54.4 miles per gallon (mpg) by 2025, but it seems the Club’s top officials don’t practice what they preach. The Sierra Club’s 15-member board of directors own a combined 32 vehicles, less than one-fifth of which are hybrids or electric vehicles. Seven of the 32 vehicles are sports utility vehicles while only six are hybrids and electric cars, according

National Journal published two stories late last week that immediately rocketed ’round the lefty blogosphere. The first argued that Obamacare was on a fabulous “winning streak;” the second followed up on the same theme, asserting that conservative critics of the law have sustained a credibility hit as a result of all this supposedly great news.

Democrat Alan Webber has raised the most money out of the five candidates vying for the party’s nomination and the right to take on Governor Susana Martinez in the November election. It turns out Webber got some fundraising help from a controversial source. From the late 1960´s to the mid 1970´s, the anti-war group the Weather Underground planted and detonated bombs at targets across the country.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine.

The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief
