Inside the ´60 Minutes´
Benghazi breakdown

Politico, by Dylan Byers

Original Article

Posted By:FlyRight, 11/10/2013 8:25:28 AM

Jeff Fager, the CBS News chairman and executive producer of “60 Minutes,” has said that his team spent “more than a year” reporting the story about the attack on Benghazi that aired on Oct. 27.Yet it wasn’t until Thursday night that they learned first-hand what their principal source, a security contractor named Dylan Davies, had told the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the attack. In conversations with POLITICO, sources familiar with “60 Minutes” reporting said that it was only on Thursday night that “60 Minutes” obtained the official account of events that Davies had given to FBI officials after the

Bearing in mind CBS News´s and 60 Minutes built in bias, which report do most of us think was/is the TRUE evaluation of Benghazi? Just guess.

The left is going to use CBS´s (deliberate....calculated?) screw-up as a red herring to discredit everyone who actually wants to find out what really happened and why Obama and Rodham lied and made a political prisoner out of some idiot who made an unrelated video.

This is just part of the ongoing cover-up.

Am I the only one with whiplash?

How many government employees were in Benghazi on 9/11? How many people were there who are being paid by We, The People? How many people whose paycheck is made up by the tax dollars that you and I contribute?

Has the 0bama regime put them all under lock and key? Are they all in a gulag somewhere off the coast of Alaska?

Is there not one --just ONE, with the intestinal fortitude to step forward and say, I don´t care what my government threatens me with, I don´t care what I lose, I just don´t care, I´m going to stand up and tell the truth about what happened that night?

Just one!

Those 37 people rescued in Benghazi should be able to confirm or deny where Davies was or was not during the events. Has CBS or any free person asked any of them what happened. Until they are allowed to come forward, I will wait for a full exposition.

The FBI were right on the scene, if I recall. /s

Only two weeks or so to start on the evidence and then TV journalists beat them to some of the evidence. If Eric Holder missed anything on his edit, I´m sure it didn´t matter since Hillary changed it all up. I wonder if she had to pull out her personal copy to send to David Brock or if he actually got a report from the FBI. If he can get the FBI report, surely he could get more. Where´s all the rest of the evidence? If this report went to Issa´s committee, it was probably completely redacted except for "a" and "the."

The FBI is under the control of the NIC of the DOJ (Eric Holder). Do not trust this man! The Republicans on the Senate Judiciary committee were afraid of being called racist - that´s why we have this NIC of the DOJ. Republicans have no spin. This CBS new twist on Benghazi is a stirred up Eric Holder scam. Subpeona Valeria Jarrett and Hillary Clinton - and make those two sleazy gals talk!!

CBS is running a virtual prison camp and withholding many Benghazi witnesses. Absurd ?
60 Minutes, the High Ministry of State Propaganda, always can be counted on to never tell us all the facts.
So, it is not a stretch to say the witnesses they know about ARE prisoners because CBS is acting under government orders, sworn to secrecy, kind of like the mafia oath of secrecy, and will not interview them or reveal who they are. The big joke is, we watch, then go right out and buy their advertised products and services.
Along with the crimes of Communist medicine attempting to take over our once private lies, the crime of cover up of all those witnesses to Hillary and Barry´s repeated death order stand downs, because immediate murders took place. Barry´s medical crimes of unnecessary deaths to thousands is just starting now, and these stories will come at us in unending terror.
Both these frightening people and many of their conspirators, from the White House, Congress, CBS, etc
should all be put in prison.

Why did the president lie and supply a false narrative, -an excuse, an alibi--and use the video as an excuse for AlAqaeda´s actions? They´re a terrorist organization from whom we expect terrorist behaviour -- so why the need to explain the reaon for the terrorists behaviour in Benghazi -- to explain the attack? To blame Coptic Christians who made the video as the direct reason for terrorism ?

Explain Why the terrorists were recorded saying "don´t shoot?" Dr. Morsi sent us"?

Why no interest in getting to and saving the Ambassador? Obama sent no rescue team.

Why haven´t Brennan, McDonough nor Donilon been called to account for their actions the night of the attack when it´s been widely reported they sat in the situation room with Obama watching the attack on live feed ?

Ambassador Stevens was not in loop on missile and arms transfers to AlQaeda. S that why they made no effort to save him. Are the reports true that Stevens. met secretly with Senator Inhoef to tell of the illegal arms transfers?

WHY did the president NOT authorize a team to rescue the Missisng USA Ambassador Stevens..and never did send a team looking for a missing USA Ambassador-instead waiting to hear he was dead?

WHY did the president say he authorised a rescue but Never signed a CBA CROSS BORDER AUTHOTITY...which only the CinC can do?

Lt. Colonel Shaffer starts to say the words WM...D? We´re WMD stolen out of Benghazi? We´re those the biowarfare used in Syria that Obama named Assad for?

I missed the 60 Minutes report. Did they interview Hillary? Obama? any generals? How about the Deputy Chief of Mission who testified before Congress? Did they ask hard questions or just softballs? Any mention of the video maker who sat in jail for a year?

I quit watching 60 Minutes two decades ago out of disgust. This article merely reinforces my decision from that time.

Perhaps the whole 60 Minutes show was a set-up either in allowing Davies to tell his story, although they knew he was lying, or Davies was in on the set-up, which in any case would give Hillary & her slaves ammunition to wave off any questions about Benghazi. You know how devious the Clintons can be, I put nothing passed them, especially Hillary. She believes the presidency is her right & she waited long enough......she will allow no one to get in her way this time.

BENGHAZI.... the stain that cannot be washed away, nor forgotten.... by the American people...
BENGHAZI is the insight into Obama that reveals his actions and his plan for America...Benghazi is a view into Obama´s crystal ball...It shouts BEWARE.

Ambassador Stevens was not in the loop on missile and arms transfers to AlQaeda. Is that why they made no effort to save him. Are the reports true that Stevens met secretly with Senator Inhoef to tell of the illegal arms (40,000 surface to air missiles with Manpads) transfers? Was this Fast and Furious II? Is Obama arming all of America´s enemies for our destruction?

WHY did the president NOT authorize a team to rescue the Missisng USA Ambassador Stevens..and never did send a team looking for a missing, kidnapped USA Ambassador-instead waiting ....WAITING to hear he was dead? Obama only spoke to Hillary once that night...to tell her of the dead Ambassador Stevens. Only then did they speak....confirmation only. Mission accomplished ....

The topic also came up in a 2011 ’60 Minutes’ interview with Lesley Stahl weeks before the debut of “Politics Nation.”In outtakes posted from that interview, Stahl asked Sharpton if he was an FBI informant.

Two years before the Boston Marathon bombing, the Russian government concealed key information on one of the killers that might have thwarted the attack, a new report charges.Kremlin officials intercepted a phone conversation in which Tamerlan Tsarnaev discussed Islamic jihad with his mother, but they withheld the information from the FBI, according to the U.S. inspector general report that comes as the one-year anniversary of the bombing approaches. Had the FBI been privy to the red-flag phone call, it would have prompted the bureau to take an extensive look at Tsarnaev, according to The New York Times. “Had they known what the

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared Tuesday his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better´ in a Rose Garden press conference. But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night.

The author of the Twilight of Abundance, David Archibald, sent an email a few days ago, saying “there is a whole new world coming.” Archibald, who’s an Australian, warns in his book that the world is running out of food, energy and security. Where he differs from Malthus, however, is in arguing that the shortages are the consequence of policy, rather than the inherent limitations of the universe. The world is doing everything it can to run in the opposite direction of abundance because we think we have too much. The West dreads warmer weather, even though warmer weather might

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years.

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him."

She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
