On August 12, Joe DiGenova, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, told Washington D.C.´s WMAL that one of the reasons people have remained tight-lipped about Benghazi is because 400 U.S. missiles were "diverted to Libya" and ended up being stolen and falling into "the hands of some very ugly people." DiGenova represents Benghazi whistleblower Mark Thompson. He told WMAL that he "does not know whether [the missiles] were at the annex, but it is clear the annex was somehow involved in the distribution of those missiles."
Comments: Pretty soon the waters won´t be muddied by the innocents killed by these weapons, but bloodied.

I bet there was more weapons than just the missiles that were stolen. This stuff is dripping out bit by bit and it gets more & more disgusting with each new revelation. It´s obvious the fix was in when Obama ordered the stand down and let our people get slaughtered to allow this terrorist-benefiting theft to occur. He & Hillary knew exactly what was transpiring during the attack.
It sounds like madam Hillary was trying to do her best "Charlie Wilson" imitation and got her hands caught in the proverbial cookie jar!!! I wonder if Huma Weiner was advising her??? But hey, what difference does it make???
The benghazi cover-up is vast and detailed. Its depth includes endless lies, stonewalling, witness tampering, and the appearance of a concocted hillary medical emergency. State run media is fully engaged in the cover-up and in the cover-up of the cover-up. Count me among skeptics who believe the democrats won´t face any consequences for benghazi crimes.
Amazing courage for this to come out. So many have been silenced that were there. Some through intimidation others left to die. Loose lips sink ships has a whole new meaning for this administration. Could we just have old Joe comment on Benghazi ? We might actually get some real answers.
This is going to get really interesting. Joe DiGenova instills fear in any who must go up against this pit bull in a courtroom. Same with his wife, the beautiful and talented Victoria Toensing. Note to self- buy more popcorn.
Richard "Mack" Machowitz was our morning talker on KSEV. He was known for "Future Weapons" amongst other shows on TV and a former SEAL. Within one or two weeks of the event last September he was talking about this being what "Benghazi" was about. It took 11 months for the story to catch up to him.
Obama´s Arab Spring is turning into a nuclear Winter for him if the truth comes out about Benghazi. Hillary is hip deep in the intrigue and mayhem. May both of them be brought down in flames. The decision to ignore pleas for additional security and then ultimately rescue must be devastating to those serving in dangerous situations. Putting politics before personnel is as cold blooded as it comes.
We need to see the tape played over and over of Rand Paul asking Hillary specifically if she knew anything about arms sent to Turkey.. she tried her best to avoid by saying.. "That is the first I have been asked about that", implying that asking is the same as knowing the answer. Fortunately, Paul, and I hope some more, are getting good at following up with a more specific question.. and said.. "So you know nothing about arms to Turkey"? and she had to say "no". Lie (I think she was under oath)
Any facts uncoverd, the media will ignore, Their followers will never know. A worthy persona will be created for HIllary and an elder stateman persona for Obama with mega bucks for speeches. Let the good times roll!
Those who think this will prevent Hillary from running in 2016 are wrong. For liberal democrats and squishy, clueless "independents" it doesn´t matter what Hillary or any other lib does. They will still back them and vote for them in 2016. The press will back her and write it off as a learning experience begat of a true diplomat. That and George Bush killed thousands upon thousands.
FTA: Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) suggested that one of the causes behind the terrorist attack "may have been that there was a gun running operation going on in Benghazi, leaving Libya and going to Turkey and [distributing] arms to the [Syrian] rebels."
The gun running part wouldn´t be the first time this lawless Administration and its associated bureaucrats engaged in that kind of thing. By now it´s their M.O.
Drug kingpin "Chapo" Guzman stoked the Sinaloa Cartel´s already bulging arsenals with guns "walked" over the border, leading to the deaths of at least two American law enforcement officers and hundreds of other deaths south of the border.
How hard would it be for some of those MANPADS (surface to air heat-seeking anti-aircraft missiles) to be smuggled into Mexico then carried over the border? If one civilian airliner--let alone several--were shot down in American state(s), air traffic would just about cease. People and packages would have to find a ground route. Most citizens don´t realize just how serious a threat like this would be, and how draconian the punishments would have to be for the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party, which have consistently resisted efforts to harden the border. There are millions of "undocumented Democrats" just waiting for their Motor Voter supplied voter registration cards. Now it seems certain that al-Qa´eda has its hands on combat rifles and, much worse, Stinger type missiles. The Administration and the Democratic party en masse deserve to be keelhauled if American airliners start getting shot down. And the MSM that greased the path to these atrocities should join them under the ship´s keel.
This Administration is all smoke and mirrors. The most transparent Administration ever is nothing but a sewer of lies and deception by people whose Job One is to destroy this country piece by piece. Don´t believe anything they say, lying is their normal escape route.

It´s a dirty world out there in Obama land. Anybody else get this message?
Obama to David Letterman on national television in November, 2012..."Here´s what happened...You had a video that was released by somebody who lives here, sort of a shadowy character---who made an extremely offensive video directed at---at Mohammed and Islam---"
In the meantime today, August 13, 2013, Mark Basseley Youssef, the Coptic Christian, writer, producer and promoter of "Innocence Of Muslims," still sits in a California prison, having just finished off his morning bowl of corn flakes.
This explains just why so many CIA agents have disappeared into the witness protection program. Not that they were under any danger, but the danger was/is against the Obozo administration. It all fits like a glove.
The most confusing thing to me in all of this has been the number of CIA people involved in the apparent cover up. Why would they defend Obama and Clinton? But if they were trying to recover weapons given by State, then it makes more sense. And all the more reason they should eventually talk.
Perhaps #40 the CIA has been set up to take the the hit in another attempt to redo the Frank Church destruction of that agency along with the FBI. Forcing those agents to go underground may be the biggest mistake of the Hillary /Barry tag team. Once completely deep under that team would have no way to control or stop a private take down of them. Is this another reason for Obe´s frantic attempts to recover Snowden?
Mistake after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake, after mistake... Golly gee! Obama must either be: A) The most unlucky person in the world B) The most inexperienced person in the world C) The most inept person in the world D) The stupidest person in the world E) Intentionally undermining the county
where is General Petraeus in this mess? He must be questioned again and let the truth come out! No wonder Obama and Hillary had a nice little lunch at the WH...lets get e story straight before it breaks.........can you stand much more of this Clown and his circus of buffoons?
If there are that many of these missiles out there will make every plane trip a roll of the dice. As others have said, remember TWA 800. They won´t have to smuggle them into the US--just be in a boat on the water near many of our airports.
Montevideo - Uruguay´s Senate is expected to pass a law on Tuesday making the small South American nation the world´s first to allow its citizens to grow, buy and smoke marijuana. The pioneering government-sponsored bill establishes state regulation of the cultivation, distribution and consumption of marijuana and is aimed at wresting the business from criminals. Cannabis consumers would be allowed to buy a maximum of 40 grams (1.4 ounces) each month from state-regulated pharmacies as long as they are over the age of 18 and registered on a government database that will monitor their monthly purchases.
The political temperature in the Arctic rose on Tuesday when Vladimir Putin vowed to step up Russia´s military presence in the region in response to a claim by Canada to the north pole. In typically trenchant style, Putin told his defence chiefs to concentrate on building up infrastructure and military units in the Arctic. He said the region was again key to Russia´s national and strategic interests, following a retreat in the post-Soviet period. His comments were a direct and rapid riposte to Canada, a rival Arctic power. John Baird, said his government had asked scientists to work on a submission to the UN arguing
The phone call came from a charming woman with a bright, engaging voice to the cell phone of a TIME Washington Bureau Chief Michael Scherer. She wanted to offer a deal on health insurance, but something was fishy. When Scherer asked point blank if she was a real person, or a computer-operated robot voice, she replied enthusiastically that she was real, with a charming laugh. But then she failed several other tests. When asked “What vegetable is found in tomato soup?” she said she did not understand the question. When asked multiple times what day of the week it was yesterday, she complained repeatedly of a bad connection.
A porn performer who tested positive for HIV in Los Angeles is asking for privacy as the industry tries to determine the scope of the problem. "The performer deserves privacy and dignity at this difficult time, and we ask that our colleagues and the media respect the performer’s wishes for privacy unless he or she wishes to speak," the Free Speech Coalition, a porn industry trade group, said in a statement. The Free Speech Coalition said it was working to identify anyone who had sex with the infected performer. “We take the health of our performers very seriously and felt
In China on Thursday, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. spoke plainly about the role of a free press in a democratic society. “Innovation thrives where people breathe freely, speak freely, are able to challenge orthodoxy, where newspapers can report the truth without fear of consequences,” he said in an address to American businesspeople living and working there. He was speaking against the backdrop of China’s restrictive policies on reporting by foreign news organizations; the Chinese government has so far declined to renew the visas of nearly two dozen reporters from The New York Times and Bloomberg News as a consequence
Jerusalem - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has decided not to attend a memorial service for Nelson Mandela this week because it is too expensive to travel to South Africa, Israeli media reported on Sunday. Netanyahu had notified the South African authorities that he would fly in but cancelled his plans at the last minute due to the costs involved -- around 7.0 million shekels ($2 million) for his transport and security alone, pubic radio and the Haaretz daily reported. "The decision was made in light of the high transportation costs resulting from the short notice of the trip and the security required for the prime minister
New Orleans - Things traditionally get started a little late down here, an inclination that runs from mealtimes to political races. But with nearly a year to go before the 2014 election, it is already open season on Senator Mary L. Landrieu, Democrat of Louisiana. (Snip) As Democrats look across the rest of the South, the outlook does not get much better. Ms. Landrieu, along with Senators Mark Pryor of Arkansas and Kay Hagan of North Carolina, is pretty much all that is left of Southern Democrats in the Senate. All three are up for re-election next year. And the outcome of their races could determine whether the Southern Democrat,
Even as five regulatory agencies prepared to vote Tuesday on a regulation that seeks to rein in risk-taking on Wall Street — an effort known as the Volcker Rule — lawyers and lobbyists were gearing up for another round of attacks against it. (Snip) The groups, including the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, are hinting that they could use litigation to either undercut or clarify the rule, which is intended to bar banks from trading for their own gain and limit their ability to invest in hedge funds. The rule, a cornerstone of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Act and a barometer for the overall strength of the regulatory overhaul, is aimed at
Afghan President Hamid Karzai agreed on a cooperation pact with Iran, despite continuing to resist signing a security agreement with the U.S., Reuters reported. Karzai made the deal with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani in Tehran Sunday. (Snip) Rouhani said Sunday his country opposes the presence of foreign forces in Afghanistan and the region, saying their presence generates tension, the official IRNA news agency reported. IRNA quoted Rouhani as telling Karzai: "We believe that all foreign forces should leave the region and that the security of Afghanistan should be handed over to people of the country."
US Secretary of State John Kerry reiterated on Sunday that Israel will be safer the day the recently-reached deal on Iran´s nuclear issue is implemented. Kerry, addressing the Brookings Institution´s annual Saban Forum, recognized Israel´s concern over Tehran´s disputed nuclear ambitions, saying the possibility of a weaponized nuclear Iran stood as an existential threat to Israel. "We will not allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon. Period. Not now, not ever," he said.
Los Angeles - The California health exchange says it´s been giving the names of tens of thousands of consumers to insurance agents without their permission or knowledge in an effort to hit deadlines for coverage. (Snip) Officials with Covered California, the exchange set up in response to the federal health law, said they began providing names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses if available this week in a pilot program. They said they thought it would help people meet a Dec. 23 deadline to have health insurance in place by Jan. 1. The state doesn´t know exactly how many people
The “feminist nightmare” is recurring. Unbowed by Politico labeling her with this epithet a couple of weeks ago, Michelle Obama continues to do what her critics regard as frightening behaviors. Last week, she assaulted independent women by showing off the White House Christmas decorations. “Our goal is for every room and every tree to tell a story,” she explained to an audience of military families in the East Room, where her two-tone gray dress matched the silver ornaments on the trees. She spoke of Christmas trees made from stacks of books (“they’re very cool!”) and described the “first dog display”
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
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
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
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!”
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
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.
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
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
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
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 will make remarks on Nelson Mandela´s legacy during a memorial service Tuesday for the late South African freedom fighter, officials said Monday. "We do expect President Obama to speak as part of the program," said Ben Rhodes, deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The president and first lady Michelle Obama departed Monday for Johannesburg, where a Mandela memorial service will be held in a soccer stadium. Obama, who will also spend time with the Mandela family, is not scheduled to hold any bilateral meetings with foreign leaders while in South Africa, Rhodes said. Rhodes also said the
All three networks on Monday morning highlighted the appearance of the Obamas at the Kennedy Center Honors, but only ABC fawned over "fashion win" of First Lady. Lara Spencer enthused that " one of the stars of the show was Michelle Obama." An excited Spencer explained that Mrs. Obama looked "absolutely ravishing in a flowing teal gown as she accompanied President Obama." The co-host declared, "Another big fashion win for the First Lady. CBS This Morning offered a full report on the various performers who were honored, but co-anchor Charlie Rose avoided ABC´s superlatives.
