Following President Obama´s accusation that Republicans´ investigations into the 2012 Benghazi terror attack constitute a ´phony scandal,´ a GOP congressman has alleged that the administration is hiding witnesses to the deadly military-style assault by relocating them and changing their names. Additional published reports surfacing Thursday allege that the CIA had ´dozens´ of agents on the ground in Benghazi on the night of the attack, including as many as seven wounded, and that they were engaged in an arms smuggling operation.The witness-protection approach to secrecy, South Carolina Rep. Trey Gowdy said Thursday night on the Fox News Channel, includes ´changing names
Wonder what would happen in this country if WE had a real fact-digging, honest-reporting media instead of these Leftist, piddling Obama protectors that spew the WH´s lies and cover up their traitorous actions?
...well it looks as if we have had 75% or better of the truth known since the first week.(of course they were all crackpots who suggested it) As usual, this adminstration and it´s handmaidens in the media have tried hard for nearly a year to "phony" it up...
...throw in the IRS, FEC, Fast and Furious and lets not forget Rosen of FNC, how about RICO charges being added to the articles of impeachment...

Besides impeaching all of the Obama Administration for obvious violations of many laws, the MSM should be jailed for Sedition, but that law I believe has been repealed for 1st. Amendment reasons. Send ´em all to Gitmo!
Why is obama intentionally ginning up racial divide...look no further than Benghazi. He knows if the truth comes out on what happened in Benghazi and why, serious charges could be brought against him and he has to have the blacks agitated and angry in order to cry racism. He has primed the pump of unrest and he will use it as intimidation against republicans who would dare try and impeach the first black president. He is doing everything he can to save his butt. Intimidation has always been a useful tool for him and he has proved he has no qualms about using the force of government against the people. Just like any good communist.
We´ve always expected it was gun-running, but I wonder where this leads and the extra-ordinary measures to hide this. This Prez could pass it off as an Iran contra, arming the enemy type thing that Reagan had to deal with. This Prez might be criticized for it but not severely.
It must go deeper...something like guns for campaign cash, which would be fatal. Their by-whatever-means approach doesn´t go quite that far, but I wouldn´t put it past him.
It´s so transparent: Obie unaccessible, no response, slow investigative response, and now this.
How about the corrupted CIA agents eliminating 2 of their own agents who hadn´t been in on the deal ?
And on a related subject, could it be the lapdog media will soon realize they are ceding the Cronkite chair to Jake Tapper, when they could grab some glory for themselves if they´d get off their arses.
There is a very big, dangerous, ugly secret there. One that Obama is desperately risking everything to hide, and striking the fear of God into the hearts of potential whistle blowers in order to do so.
I´m with #9 here,something like the deaths were not just part of a fight, but on purpose to cover up the gun running which the Ambassador had stumbled on. On the other hand it could be just rank incompetence. I want Praetrus under oath in a grand jury. But with Holder it ain´t gona happen.
Whatever it is, it is ugly. We´ve pretty much known that it was gun running ever since last year. The details are not only Obama´s baby, but also Hillary´s. Failed foreign policy is an understatement. We need to know the truth about these grifters and the whole US government. I don´t trust them at all.
Didn´t the Canada Free Press interview with the insider late in 2012 indicate it was also an attack on Benghazi by Russia/Iran? That could be the red meat of the coverup as well. Obama would rather lie to America and cover it up vs having to actually do something/retaliate. It´s funny watching them work so hard to cover their donkeys.
The guy with the funny haircut is right but what is going to get done with this gaggle of lazy do nothing and get alongs in Washington? I´m sick of the criminal activities carried on daily with this cabal of thieves and thugs. We are a lawless nation at this point and holding on by our finger nails.
Please forgive my pushiness and one-track minded doggedness, but it’s been eleven months – Eleven Months! - since I first inquired as to the person who issued the order to “Stand Down!” regarding Benghazi. Of course, I have my suspicions. But, a suspicion is a far cry from an admission. Please advise soonest! Thank you.
FTA: Clare Lopez, a former CIA operations officer and a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy and the Gatestone Institute, told MailOnline that the scenario is an unlikely one.
´I just do not know of any CIA legal authority to relocate people domestically or give them "new identities" inside the U.S.,´ Lopez said in an email, ´because CIA has no legal authority to operate domestically within the US (whereas, of course, the FBI does).´
LOL, legal authority?! When has that stopped barry and his criminal enterprise from doing anything? This just stinks to high heaven, at least some of the MSM like Tapper and crew need to stay aboard this ship till it reaches whereever it is going. Otherwise it will never get where it needs to go to see barry and company behind bars.
AND, our so-called house of representatives & leaders go home until after Labor Day. THEY should have stayed in session and raised H-ll with zero, the democRATS and their running, yapping yellow dogs in the media. I look for boehner and house republicans to be still asking for investigations when they lose the house and senate next year. If they don´t have backbones, WHO needs them?
Poster 18 has the right slant on this. When someone like Clare Lopez starts spouting about "legal authority" over and over, you know very well that that person is carefully parsing the language. Of course, most Americans with a minimum knowledge of how the government works know full well that the CIA does not have any "legal authority" to operate in the homeland. However, people should take note that the CIA AND the FBI are controled by the WH. And the DOJ. All peas in the same pod. And this bunch is very good at co-ordinating their lies. Of course there is a cover up. The goal is to un-cover it so the American people can know just what their government is up to.
I hope the ghosts of the Ambassador and our brave men haunt Hillary, Obie and everyone involved. I hope they visit them every night, that thing they thought they saw in the corner of their eye... lurking in the corners, knocking ashtrays off the tables etc. etc. Every day til they part this earth - after that, another entity will have his way with them for eternity. Not that comforts me much now.
Clare Lopez´s "legal authority" remark reminds me of Al Gore´s "no controlling legal authority" comments when he was caught soliciting campaign funds fro government offices. Jackasses all. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/campfin/stories/op030797.htm
The Katyn Forest Massacre happened in April 1940, and it was ordered by Stalin and Molotov. The Soviet NKVD shot 22,000 Polish Officers the best and the finest in the back of the head in the Katyn Forest, and some victims were buries alive. In 1946 the Neuremberg War Crimes Court investigated this horrible scene and they could not find many witnesses. Stalin had deported all the Ukranian villagers to Siberia, changed their names and told them to be quiet. Perhaps in the same way the CIA and the Obama is doing it now.
Very few of the Ukrainian witnesses remembered the NKVD trucks hauling the unfortunate Polish prisones to the burial grounds. However in 1992 after the Soviet Union fell a few remembered it all the gory details. This reminds me of the Benghazi Massaccre cover-up.
Look, this disgusting Marxist POS is running a dictatorship--although no one is coming out loud and saying so, except on here. We´ll be lucky is he decides to let America hold another election. Hitler and Stalin didn´t.
So what? is the only response possible to her lame and heavily qualified opining.
So she doesn´t know? But someone else may. And who said it was all domestic, anyway? Maybe there´s some domestic and legal authority that is highly secret. Maybe there is NOT, but whoever´s in charge does not care.
Or maybe it´s all being done overseas. The involved operatives have been relocated to the far ends of the earth and renamed. Anything goes, and even moreso if the Top Dog, O-Bomber, is a Wannabe Kommie Dicktater. Which it´s fairly obvious he is.
That recent White Hutt lunch was intended to keep Hill-err-ee-ass Herself updated, and fully onboard and with the program.
She cannot even competently deal with a Bimbo Eruption... Little ol´ trailer trash Paula Jones got the better of the Smartest Woman in the World. Not to mention Monica Blewinsky, who got all the phone sex with Billyboobboob Klintoon. Plus more DNA than Hill-err-ee-ass has seen outa Billyboobboob in a long time.
One other possibility that no one discusses much... What if these DimWitz are playing Rope-A-Dope, as with the Birth Certificate... ? Hoping everyone will continue to spend time and money on something that just isn´t there? So all the searching and investigating will go for naught, with the GOP having egg... proverbial chicken egg, not DNA... on its face... Wouldn´t doubt it.
Google is already heavily criticised for trying to know almost everything about us, and now the firm wants to get inside our homes, literally. Engineering director Scott Huffman told The Independent that in his vision of the future Google users would have microphones fitted inside their homes. Huffman envisages houses with microphones fitted to the ceiling that act like personal assistants; responding to voice queries and connecting to phones, tablets and other smart devices. He said: ‘Imagine I say ‘Can you bring up a video of the highlights of yesterday’s Pittsburgh Steelers game and play it on a TV in the living room?’ and it works
Canada has made a claim on the North Pole in an effort to assert its sovereignty in the resource-rich Arctic. [Snip] Canada filed the preliminary submission last week based on rules laid out in the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea, which regulates international law for the oceans. If successful, the country will have rights to the polar region´s resources, which is estimated to contain 30 percent of the world´s undiscovered natural gas and 15 percent of oil. While Canada´s Foreign Affairs Minister, John Baird announced that the country’s final claim would include the North Pole, he added scientific evidence to back the claim isn't yet ready.
The deaths of two French soldiers in the Central African Republic (CAR) have reminded the world of the deadly seriousness of France’s latest foreign foray to confront Islamists in their former colonies. Hundreds of troops are still in Mali, where they have helped force insurgents out of their northern city strongholds and into the desert. [Snip] While Britain and America continue their disengagement from overseas incursions in Afghanistan and Iraq, it has fallen to the French to take up the challenge posed by the spread of militant Islam in Africa. Long the region’s self-styled policeman, France has experience restoring regimes
Canada Post will phase out home delivery in urban areas over the next five years as the postal service struggles to rein in persistent losses. Under a five-year plan released on Wednesday, the cost of stamps will also rise and as many as 8,000 jobs will be eliminated. But the agency says it will also open more retail locations across Canada. The service faces a projected 1bn Canadian dollar ($943m; £576m) loss by 2020 without "fundamental changes". Canada Post lost C$73m in the third quarter of the current fiscal year, CBC News reported.
The National Security Agency has been accused of using Google cookies to pinpoint targets the government wants to hack. In a NSA presentation slide released by Edward Snowden and seen by the Washington Post, the agency appeared to be using internet tracking techniques usually used by advertisers. While the Pref Cookies reportedly being used don´t reveal personal information, they can uniquely identify a person´s browser. The NSA and GCHQ in the UK have been using the tracking files to identify potential targets who are using the internet, according to the documents. As well as listing visits to websites, the cookies
The US and Britain have suspended all non-lethal assistance in to northern Syria after forces from the new Islamic Front seized headquarters and warehouses belonging to the opposition’s Supreme Military Council. Fighters from the Front, a union of six major rebel groups, took control of the Free Syrian Army (FSA) bases at the Bab al-Hawa crossing on Syria’s northwestern border with Turkey late on Friday. Turkey shut its side of the border crossing, in Hatay province, due to a reported increase in clashes on the Syrian side, customs sources told the Reuters news agency. There was no immediate confirmation from
There’s a YouTube clip I can’t stop watching called “Margaret Thatcher don’t want to jump”. The then Prime Minister has just reached the end of a TV interview, and the presenter is asking her to “make a little jump”. “Why?” It’s “just a gimmick” that all her guests do. Thatcher raises an eyebrow. “I bet that you wouldn’t do it,” says the presenter, becoming at the same time conciliatory, wheedling, insistent. “Just a little jump.” Come on. “Gorbachev did it.” “But what”, inquires the Iron Lady icily, “is the point of it?” “It just shows another side
NHS patients will benefit from a new brain scan that can help doctors confirm or rule out a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease. David Cameron will announce tomorrow that Britain will be the first place in the world where the revolutionary technique will be available for free. The test will mean that, for the first time, doctors will be able to definitively rule out Alzheimer’s in some patients for five years. Currently, one in five cases of the disease is misdiagnosed. It could also help doctors to confirm an existing diagnosis of Alzheimer’s, ensuring people get the treatment they need.
Barack Obama is facing poll numbers that are now in the same territory as President George W. Bush´s following Hurricane Katrina. The Quinnipiac University Polling Institute released numbers on Tuesday showing that just 38 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing as president, with a whopping 56 percent saying they disapprove. The president has lost his landslide electoral edge among young voters, too, with a negative 41–49 percent rating among 18- to 29-year-old voters. His once formidable support among Hispanics has also evaporated: They now support him by an historically small 50–43 percent margin.
Secretary of State John Kerry boasted in a congressional hearing on Tuesday that a recent nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic of Iran will make America ´more secure than the day before we entered this agreement.´ [Snip] But ´this agreement halts the progress of Iran´s nuclear program--Halts the program!´ he boasted. ´Iran´s nuclear program will not move forward. Under this agreement, Iran will have to neutralize--end!--its entire supply of 20 percent-enriched uranium, which you know is a short step away from weapons-grade uranium.´ ´Iran will forfeit all--not part--all of that 20 percent [enriched material], that 200-kilogram stockpile. Gone!´
More than 100 members of the BBC have been deployed to South Africa to cover Nelson Mandela’s death and memorial service. Staff were flown out to cover the story in the week the corporation received more than 1,000 complaints from viewers about local news and the storms being ignored to cover his death. (Snip) Far fewer staff were dedicated to the coverage on other channels, with nine people including a presenter, correspondents and camera operator from ITV sent out to South Africa. A spokeswoman for the BBC said: “Over a ten-day period we expect to have deployed around 120 journalists, technicians and support
President Obama shook hands with Cuban President Raul Castro today, an unprecedented gesture of friendship which occurred, fittingly, at the memorial service for Nelson Mandela. [Snip] Obama greeted a long line of world leaders and heads of state attending the memorial service in Johannesburg after flying to South Africa with a U.S. delegation which included former presidents Bill Clinton, George W Bush and Jimmy Carter along with their families. Obama also shook hands with Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff, who has clashed with the U.S. President over alleged National Security Agency spying. He was later spotted in the VIP stands posing
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
Looks like this president can’t get away with flirting in front of his wife… It appears that first lady Michelle Obama was none too pleased with the way that President Barack Obama was acting toward Denmark Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt during a ceremony honoring Nelson Mandela, and before too long, they switched seats. This lmao! Michelle Obama vs Prime Minister of Denmark at Mandela´s ceremony. pic.twitter.com/Rq4uF9fTaZ — Stun (@TheBlogPirate) December 10, 2013
Barack Obama has arrived in South Africa to lead the American delegation at a memorial service for former South African President Nelson Mandela in Johannesburg. But his party is reportedly stuck in traffic and he is said to have arrived late at the stadium for the ceremony. [Snip] But Mr Clinton, Mr Carter and his wife Rosalynn have all traveled separately to the event. According to reports, Mr Obama and his delegation are stuck in a lines of traffic caused by tens of thousands of people making their way to the event. Mr Obama is among the foreign leaders who
President Obama’s job approval among American voters has dropped to negative territory with just 38 percent voicing their approval versus the 58 who says they disapprove, according to a national poll released Tuesday by the independent Quinnipiac University. That is one percent less than the 39% who said they approved of him in last month’s poll. The majority of the 2,692 registered voters the University in early December said that the president is not honest and trustworthy. When asked, “Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as President?,” respondents gave Obama lackluster ratings
The sign language interpreter at Nelson Mandela´s memorial yesterday "made up his own signs," according to South Africa´s deaf federation. "He´s a complete fraud," Cara Loening, director of Sign Language Education and Development in Cape Town, said according to ITV News. "He wasn´t even doing anything, There was not one sign there. Nothing. He was literally flapping his arms around." Delphin Hlungwane, an official South African sign language interpreter at DeafSA, told Reuters:
