´60 Minutes´ too quick
to retract Benghazi story

Statesman Journal (Salem, OR), by Ruben Navarrette Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 11/15/2013 6:27:45 AM

SAN DIEGO — “60 Minutes” should not have thrown out its report on Benghazi with the bath water.(snip) Under pressure from the liberal group Media Matters, and from defenders of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — who still has many questions to answer about Benghazi — the network brass was so eager to atone for the errors that they overcompensated. CBS retracted the entire story, when only part of it had been challenged. Despite the claims by Clinton defenders that Davies’ interview was the linchpin of the story, this was not the case. I’ve watched the segment several times, and

Nice try Hillary, but we ain´t buying it..

You had to know there was some heavyweights bullying 60 Minutes into a retraction.All this shows in Hillary would follow the same mode of operation as Obama.

Nothing has changed. 4 brave Americans died after a several hour attack, and our country´s leaders let them die.

At the very least the President should have been impeached over this and if this incident had been properly reported at the time it is doubtful that King Barack would have had a Second Coronation.

The four who were murdered at Benghazi were, Tyrone S. Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and J. Christopher Stevens. Let us never forget their names.

Hillary is more dangerous than Obama because she is more cunning, and probably smarter. She has the same vision for America, the same LoFo voters and the same large, fawning press corps to enable her.

The Clinton´s will do anything to cover this up. They have a lot of clout and intend to use it. It is how they operate. The fact that the deaths of four Americans can be brushed aside after a screeching Hillary asks, "What difference, at this point, does it make?" is sickening. That comment alone should have brought condemnation down on her thighness. Not only did Hillary lie to the families of the dead, by that statement she cavalierly dismissed any attempt to investigate it further. The families and the nation deserve to know the whole truth about Benghazi. Obama and Hillary need to be held accountable.

And once again I have to wonder how much of this was a David Brock set-up. In any case, the revelations today that survivors of Benghazi had to sign confidentiality statements AT THE FUNERAL CEREMONY for those who had died, and that the attack was military and constant over 7 hours, so why no help says a lot.

Well, of course, just as the Bush National Air Guard story was "false, but accurate", this story is "true, but inaccurate." The difference being that the first story put a Republican President in a bad light and thus gave voters an accurate impression of him. This story, however, puts a Democratic President (and potential Presidential candidate) in a bad light and thus gives voters and inaccurate impression. /s

Hillary is Obama in a woman´s pantsuit and with more testosterone. She is fuming because she preceded Obama in everything except being president. She is also from Chicago and learned a thing or 2 about the Chicago way. She was a fan of Saul Alinsky before Barry. She tried healthcare with her husband and hers bombed, too. She is a congenital liar and no doubt has taken part in countless criminal schemes including the 900 FBI files that somehow made it to the private residence at the White House. To have her say "what difference does it make"
regarding the death of the Benghazi heroes, and for Jay Carney to say it is old news now, makes the blood of patriots boil.

True, "we ain´t buying it," OP, but THEY (the LoFos are.

And #9,Does she have files? She claimed she had only nine. Then she had to add a 4 and a 2 behind that because she forgot to put them on. Don´t believe it. She most likely has 90,000 or maybe with yet another zero. She has a criminal mind of the first degree. And yes, she and bill and dozens of others should be in prison. Even barbarians like Nicolae Ceaucescu, Saddam Hussein and Idi Amin thought they were untouchable. When those who "represent(?)" US get a spine, these anti-Americans will be forced out of power.

She flunked her bar exam, so she isn´t so smart!

Secondly, the Marines/special forces will not let this go. Active or retired, their reputation is at stake. This masculine woman is no match for these men/women of military service.

She belittled Obama about who would be responsible to answer the red phone at 30AM. Neither responded! She isn´t a woman, she has no compassion, heart, or sweetness.

She is that old branch stuck under a truck being dragged along the road

The fruit of Benghazi:

That Obama and Hillary felt the need to supply Al Qaeda a reason -an excuse ... For attacking in Benghazi-- is the opening story.
Americans needed no reason to understand why AlQaeda would attack Americans anywhere?

Obama providing that false narrative is the first question that needs to be answered. Why? Why say the attack was because a Coptic Christian made a video? One, it was to provide a reason for the holocaust of Christians ( that Obama has refused to stand against) in the Middle East as the reason for their decimation at the hands of Muslims as through Christians bore the responsibility for provoking their own demise...

Secondly, Obama knew that attack was coming ...in advance. Why else be on the phone with Netanyahu that night, at that 3AM hour for Netanyahu... whom Obama had spoken to only once before ( December ´09)-- and with the Jewish vote fading in the run up to his re- election, Obama hoped to settle the unsettled Jewish vote by showcasing a relationship with Netanyahu. A relationship with Netanyahu that didn´t... and doesn´t exist. Telling is the 3AM Netanyahu call-- it was preplanned optics and complete Kabuki. Obama knew in advance he would be asked what he was doing at that exact time...thus Obama knew of the preplanned attack on Benghazi...that call was preplanned campaign optics for the Jewish vote that Obama was fast loosing.

Benghazi brought Stinger missiles to terrorist´s AlQaeda.

Keep in mind Obama´s unwavering support of Mursi...a thug. Keep in mind the Al Qaeda force caught on tape ...that upon their arrival in Benghazi, they are recorded yelling "Don´t shoot, Dr. Mursi sent us."

The arms did go to Syria, to Al Qaeda in Syria, where more Christians are being slaughtered...where the holocaust of Christians continues in the Middle East...and that included the WMD, the bio warfare Al Qaeda used on one village and its children...used to entrap the USA in a war in Syria...that fortunately Obama didn´t or hasn´t yet gotten off the ground.

Consider the top commanders purge out of the military.

I remind folks that in 1968 Hillary received a personally signed job offer from Saul Alinsky. Alinsky may have died but Obama went to work for his organization seventeen years later. All we have to do is to read everything we can find on Alinsky to see where this is headed. Alinsky´s friendship with the Capone mob should tell us a lot about tactics. Of course Hillary is behind the arm twisting.

If you know a truth is coming out and you don´t want it believed then here´s what you do:
> Do an expose which is 80% true and 20% false but apparently true.
> Shortly after the expose have someone loudly denounce the 20% that is provably false.
> Orchestrate a howling mob that denounces the whole thing as a ´tissue of lies´.
> When the truth is published ridicule it as ´old news that has already been disproved´.
Perfect example: GWB´s ´18 words´ - sales documents came out purporting to show Saddam Hussein´s govt buying yellow cake. The documents were shown to be forgeries, which they were. The howling mob denounced the forgeries AND Bush´s 18 words as ´a tissue of lies´. Mission accomplished.
Second example: CBS´s Bengazi story

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels.

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.

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.

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.
