"We´re here to kill Americans":
Witness on Benghazi attack

CBS News, by Lara Logan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 10/24/2013 7:51:30 PM

We´re hearing for the first time from a security officer who witnessed the terrorist attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, last year. U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the attack on the mission and a nearby annex. In an interview for "60 Minutes," correspondent Lara Logan spoke with a British citizen, who had been hired to train the Libyan guards at the U.S. mission. He calls himself Morgan Jones, a pseudonym to protect his safety.Jones says he was annoyed that the State Department wouldn´t allow his guards to carry guns. As the

I realize it´s cbs but Lara was on the ground in Afghanistan and at least went on the record, blasting the CinC´s declaration that hostilities there were winding down.

Where are the Americans who survived this treachery? Why are they now allowed to speak? Why is this president still in office. What is happening to our once proud and strong nation?

IMPEACH Barack Obama!!

The initial testimony was the Libiyan guards just melted away as if they had known about the assault ahead of time. Is this guy covering up for them by saying they were beaten and allowed to leave? He is a biased witness IMO because the Libiyan guards were his responsibility to train. They obviously failed at guarding, were they complicit as well?

John Boehner refuses to allow a special prosecutor to investigate Benghazi. A number of GOP have pressured him to do so but he refuses. Obama knows very well he can do whatever he wants.

The administration is dragging this out because they want "Benghazi fatigue" to set in thereby declaring this old news and urging us to move along. The despicable duo, Obama and Clinton, have blood on their hands and they know it. Obama is confident he can keep this under wraps but I believe Hillary tipped her hand when she lost it in the committee hearing. She knows she is vulnerable. Speak to the men the government is hiding and the truth may be found. How bizarre is that? Have these guys been forced into the witness protection program? Are there no patriots among them? An even more chilling thought, is the government using threats and intimidation to prevent them from coming forth? Were they involved in activities they know would be considered treasonous? There is something evil lurking behind what happened that the administration does not want to see the light of day. The confidence they have in their ability to silence these men is very disturbing.

Hillary has no shame. There is no way a sane person, in her position about Benghazi, would even think of running for President. The Republican opponent should have a commercial showing Hillary wearing a sleep mask with a slight smile on her face, the clock showing 3 am, numerous emails screaming for help with a split showing the hell that was going on Benghazi at that time. This Republican will have to show it the way it was and not back down.

In the final analysis, the real target needs to be the hildebeast. If she is allowed to skate on this treachery - which does not matter now, according to her - she could become President of the USA. She will have blood on her hands and then be inaugurated as queen of the USA.

One monarch was enough. We have to keep the pressure on to get rid of her, if for no other reason. Then it will matter.

Poster #3 states that the guards "failed at guarding" the compound.
If the government took the guns from your home and then a gang of 50 heavily armed thugs attacked your home, killed your family and burned the house down, should we say that you "failed at guarding" your home?!

The state department policy, which was approved by hillary is the root cause of this disaster.

Lara Logan is an excellent reporter. It is hoped that this is just the first of many reports to come.

Not allowing hired guards to have guns is akin to not allowing a hired surgeon to have a scalpel or a hired pilot to have an airplane. The directive to deny arms was pure ineptness and malfeasance and sits squarely at the feet of former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton.

If such deplorable incompetence hadn’t resulted in four deaths and multiple injuries, it would have been laughable. As it was in actuality, her professional incompetence was murderous, horrifying, and unpardonable.

Book: White House scrambled
after Joe Biden´s gay marriage comments
Politico, by Edward-Isaac Dovere    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 4/16/2014 11:18:17 PM     Post Reply
Vice President Joe Biden really did get ahead of President Barack Obama on accepting gay marriage in 2012 — and the White House really wasn’t happy about it, despite the two leaders’ many attempts to claim otherwise. That’s the story laid out in Jo Becker’s new book, “Forcing the Spring,” which documents the past few years of successful efforts to expand the legalization of gay marriage, according to an advance copy obtained by POLITICO. Speculation that Biden’s comments on “Meet the Press” in May 2012 were meant as a trial balloon, Becker writes, came from people “not privy to the

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come

President Obama said Wednesday that Russia realizes the U.S. military is “significantly superior” to its own and does not want war with the United States. Asked in an interview with CBS News about a Russian fighter buzzing a U.S. Navy ship in the Black Sea on Saturday, Obama said, “They’re not interested in any kind of military confrontation with us, understanding that our conventional forces are significantly superior to the Russians.” Obama accused Russian President Vladimir Putin of being behind uprisings in Ukraine in which government buildings have been taken over. Ukraine’s government has launched an operation against the separatists

Greg Abbott, the Republican state attorney general, and Wendy Davis, the Democratic state senator, both of whom are vying to replace Mr. Perry, have been sparring across Texas. Meanwhile Mr. Perry has been traveling the country and the world promoting the robust Texas economy and bolstering his national profile as he considers another run for president in 2016.

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE—Victims of the 9/11 terror attacks expressed shock that the FBI may be meddling in the hearings here, and some speculated that it is part of an effort by the Obama administration to completely derail the hearings and force them into federal court stateside. Families of those killed in the 9/11 terror attacks traveled here with the intent of watching their family members’ accused killers face justice. However, many say they were horrified earlier this week when pre-trial hearings came to a halt over revelations that the FBI had launched an investigation into the accused terrorist’s defense

The rally at the Hy-Vee Conference Center will feature Nebraska Sen. Deb Fischer, Iowa´s Lieutenant Gov. Kim Reynolds, and Kay Orr, the former Nebraska governor who was the country´s first Republican female governor. It will likely also make it difficult for Democrats to use the "war on women" card in Iowa. State Senator Ernst gained national recognition for

Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
