Catherine Herridge explains more about classified cable, says State Dept. is culpable for deaths in Benghazi

Fox News Catherine Herridge sits down with Greta to talk more about this classified cable. She said she can’t speculate on the motives of her confidential sources coming forward with this, however she said it’s clear they want this information out in the public. She said it’s also clear to her based on this cable that the State Dept. is culpable in the deaths of the Ambassador and the other Americans in Benghazi on 9/11.

The second half of this video is an interview with Jasson Chaffetz discussing this as well. He won’t discuss classified cables, but he does tell an interesting story from when he was in Libya hearing from the man who got the call from Ambassador Stevens that they were under attack. It’s a story he hasn’t told before.

    One word (and I’ll say it):

    • Might I add one more.. Valerie

      • Jazzee

        one more: obama

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          Meh. The boy-king has proven himself incompetent more times than I can keep track of; I tend to think that there are far more nefarious strings being pulled than he’s capable of.

          • piperlord

            Yes, but… He can not just be brushed aside on all admin scandals because he always is ‘present’ in EVERY seemingly circumstance in his life and career ON PURPOSE, mind you. They chose him exactly for this reason – once again, Barry gets off the hook. I’m not buying it. Also, this strategy is of the Left – on purpose, too.

            • E. Lee Zimmerman

              Oh, I don’t think he’s getting brushed aside. I strongly believe the political damage that he’s inflicted upon his party AND our country will be around for ages.

          • NJK

            Please don’t say incometent. He’s hoping that this is what people say, if and when he is ever put on trial. He wants to be able to excuse it as incompetence. If that’s the case, so is everyone down to the last soldier who followed this man. It is deliberate. He is evil, and it’s like watching Hilter in Germany, where only a few tried to do anything about him. He is a stealth Jihadist. He is a Muslim Brotherhood plant working with the left.

            • E. Lee Zimmerman

              You don’t think he’s incompetent?

              You do realize that “incompetence” isn’t a legal defense, right?

              • BestRealAmerican

                Yes, he is mentally deficient (that’s what years of smoking, cocaine and AIDS will do to you — coupled with the mental disease of liberalism) but he is not “incompetent” — he is EVIL!!! Calculatingly, destructively EVIL.

                • E. Lee Zimmerman

                  Hmm. Yeah, I don’t doubt he’s evil … I just think he’s a bigger buffoon than folks actually give him credit for.

        • Orangeone

          One more: Bill Clinton

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        Very possible, but I’m of the mindset that the name that bears repeating at this point is Huma.

        • colliemum

          Huma Abedin is definitely in the frame, but Valerie Jarrett must not be overlooked.
          I think it is high time that the FBI be made to tell what they know about their deep backgrounds, and we must ask why people close to the muslim brotherhood were even allowed to have their positions of trust in both Foggy Bottom and the WH.

          The scandal is not just about the murder of four Americans – it is about the infiltration of muslim special interests into the highest levels of the government.

        • Rachel

          Indeed. Michele Bachmann was right about her and the Islamists infiltrating the White House. And they demonized her for saying so. Our White House are collaborating with the enemy and arming them…and then the enemy turned around and used the weapons on our people, of course the WH doesn’t want to answer questions!

      • C. Maxwell

        I think you said the right one.
        Valerie Jarrett wouldn’t let Obama pull the trigger on bin Laden, so Panetta had to do it.
        I bet she made sure Obama stayed out of this, too.

    • I don’t know how a person with such a background could be allowed to infiltrate to the highest level, and in such an open way. The problem isn’t Huma, it’s those that are complicit, and are supposed to be on our side.

      • Patriot077

        I read the book “Muslim Mafia” which names numerous people and agencies infiltrated by them. From local law enforcement all the way to the FBI, CIA, etc. Bill Whittle did a couple of interviews maybe 3 years ago with confidential informers – here is a link to the 2nd for those who may be interested.

        • sDee


          • Patriot077

            y.w. though both these sources are surely outdated now having had 3 years to incubate and hatch. The vipers nest has only grown in this administration.

    • anyonebutbarry2012

      well we still have not seen who approved her security clearance were proper procedures followed. this is exactly why I want boehner replaced, awful speaker, he let this slide,. have not heard a peep out of him on Benghazi.

      • actionsspeaklouder

        Boehner = coward.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          Oh, stop. You’ll make the man cry.


      Friends of Liberty & Freedom… It is the entire Obama Administration… Believe it or not, they want us to have these endless conversation on who did what and when. It wastes time. The election is a few days away. It is part of their delaying tactics. Please read Thomas Sowell’s column in Townhall, called,‘Cooling Out’ the Voters. It is at, It is important.

    • McCain and Boehner were adamantly against Bachman et al who wanted to investigate Huma. With politicians like McCain, Boehner, and Hillary, who needs enemies?

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        BOOM! There it is.

    • Patriot077

      And Michele Bachmann has had the courage to question the security clearances being given to Huma and others.

      She is in the fight of her life and can use all the financial support we can muster if we want her to be our voice in the future.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        I think a smart cookie like Bachmann will always be around in some way, shape, or form.

        • Patriot077

          You’re right and I hope we can keep her right where she is at least for the next couple years. We need someone with her courage who knows where the skeletons are buried!

      • Orangeone

        Bachmann has great ads out and even the very left-leaning MN media is stating how much her opponent is lying.

  • Rightstuff1

    This is damning. There are so many smoking guns here. This is not going to be out before the election but after the election there will be full blown investigations by congress and heads had better roll. This is beyond nauseating and the press with the sole exception of Fox and one or two extraneous news outlets are not only not doing their job they are muzzling this story.

    • Jazzee

      a poll shows 51% of the people are paying attention

  • Wow- Greta looks really heartbroken. It looked like she didn’t really want to ask the questions or hear the answers, but I think it says a lot about her integrity, that she did anyways. She could have asked tougher questions, but the person across the table wasn’t a person that would necessarily know the answers. I’m really surprised, but in a good way. I’m glad that there are some news people out there that care about the truth, regardless of political affiliation.

    • mike3e4r7

      I give her alot of credit. She has been all over this story for some time.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        Isn’t Greta a Democrat?

        • hope not

        • iaintlyin

          She defended OJ till the end. she’s a rhino

          • Conservative_Hippie

            yeah, that’s my guess.

    • colliemum

      I was amazed how angry Rep Chaffetz was – as I said below, he nearly cracked my screen.

      This is going to get bigger over the next days and the weekend. There is simply no escape for Bathhouse Barry and Hillary.

      • Orangeone

        The trip to Libya was life changing for Chaffetz. If you have time, watch his inquiry during the hearing. He was outstanding!

        • colliemum

          He was indeed outstanding – I watched the whole thing live, thanks to scoop!

    • Rachel

      Greta used to be a Democrat….not sure if she still is or not. But she does try to be neutral. But no one can STAY neutral on an issue of negligent homicide (or worse) at the highest levels.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        I made a similar comment above. Agreed, I think Greta is starting to see the truth.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Isn’t Greta a friend of the Clintons? I think I read that somewhere.

  • opinionatedhermit

    Is it too late to start impeachment proceedings?

    Because, whether he wins or not, he needs to be removed before Thanksgiving. Christmas at the latest.

    My 2 cents.

    • mike3e4r7

      Maybe after Romney wins next week, Congress will grow a pair and do just that. I’m not holding my breath, but it would be nice to see.

      • actionsspeaklouder

        I think you are wise in not holding your breath.

        • mike3e4r7


      • Conservative_Hippie

        A Romney win may be less of a motivator, since they know Obama will be leaving they may not want to rub salt in a open wound, as they say.

    • colliemum

      Correct me if I’m wrong – but isn’t it the case that the newly elected Congress convenes two weeks before the Inauguration?
      If so, and if they get their fingers out, the House could start impeachment procedures immediately after the election, and the new Senate with a GOP majority, could get this done in January.

      If you all get a GOP majority in Congress elected, and if you get R & R elected!

      This scandal ought to fire up everybody even more.

      • Betsey_Ross

        Yes, the newly elected Congress is in place two weeks before the inauguration. They won’t impeach at this late date. They probably would if Obama were re-elected, but it would take forever. I would be shocked if they moved that fast. I just don’t see it happening.

        I am impressed that the Intellegence Committee in the House and Senate are actually meeting and gathering information. Most of them are out campaigning. It heartens me that they are working on this. They must all be careful that they don’t bring charges so fast, because the President does have the power to pardon and I don’t know if he would be stupid enough to pardon himself, Hillary, Biden, Holder, et. al. But who knows? This Congress is the one to act, not the new one coming up. It all happened on their watch.

        There are so many legal issues with this President and we all know that he doesn’t belong there. Look at poor Greta. She has tried to remain neutral for all this time, but you can tell she is finally understanding that her party has been taken over by law breakers, and power hungry people with no conscience not to mention ones that blame America first.

    • Rachel

      Obama cannot be elected! If he is impeached, Mitt doesn’t become President….Biden does!

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        And, to quote Joe, that’s a big effing deal!

    • Orangeone

      It is never too late. Boehner needs to be removed because he has NEVER performed during his appt.

  • sjmom

    According to Ed Klein Hillary can prove she tried to get Benghazi security so this leaves Obama. The military was told to stand down and according to Gen Ham orders of these kind come from the WH. Now we learn Gregory Hicks in Tripoli made phone calls immediately after getting a phone call from the ambassador. One plus one equals two not three and every arrow is pointing in Obama’s direction.

    Also on the Blaze there is a video of Glenn Beck on his radio show tonight calling out the two media sources Newt spoke about. Glenn’s sources have not only told him who the media are but what they have.. Right Scoop, you may want to post this video.

    If this keeps us we just may know what happened before the election.

    • Jazzee

      SO if Beck knows EXPOSE them…………………………….and how would they get them? who would give anything to mainstream idiots????? sure it all points to obama
      stupid hillary covering for him but then she is just like him another Marxist lover
      this must come out…………………………….tell it BECK NOW

      • Patriot077

        What Beck probably wants more than exposing them himself is for those 2 networks to air the information to their national audiences before the election. He will tell all if they don’t.

        • Conservative_Hippie

          Sounds like it’s going to be a wild weekend!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      Very true, but the next logical question — should it come out that the Odministration (specifically, the White House) stood in the way of increased security (which I don’t believe personally is the case) — would be where the story of the video came from. Clearly, SOMEONE had “blaming the video” up his (or her) sleeve, and that just doesn’t smack of an inner Oval Office mechanism. Maybe Jarrett, at best, but I’d be far more inclined to focus my eyes on the State Department for something of that magnitude.

      • colliemum

        I agree insofar as the video must have been given to sources in Egypt, where it allegedly was shown on some TV channel, and where the Cairo Embassy tweeted an apology for it even before the demo there – which was hours before the attack at Benghazi.
        If it can be shown that Hillary and later Bathhouse Barry signed off on what their underlings Jarrett and Abedin did, then this scandal also touches the FBI who did not vet properly those two women.

        • E. Lee Zimmerman

          Precisely. Someone started this ball rolling BEFORE the attack, and that smacks of the State Department, not the Oval Office (for my tastes).

    • colliemum

      I have the ever increasing suspicion that Hillary has no way to prove she asked for more security for Benghazi. I suspect this because there were repeated requests, even before that August cable from Ambassador Stevens, for more security, which were all denied. This was testified to at the Oct 9th hearing before the Issa Committee.

      I think it is time for a very much closer look at the State Dept, and the role Madame Huma Abedin has been playing there. It looks to me as if she and Valerie Jarrett were the decision makers …

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        I think it was mentioned on Rush (or maybe I’ve read it elsewhere) that Bill claims that Hillary has a memo in a drawer/email in a drawer saying as such (denying additional security requests) from Showbama himself. It could just be a rumor, but I know I’ve heard/read it somewhere.

        • colliemum

          Yes, Bill Clinton’s tale about Hillary having documents exonerating her has been talked about a few weeks ago.

          But then again – why would we believe what Bill Clinton says?
          He’s trying to protect the “Clinton” brand, in the vain hope that Hillary would stand for and win the 2016 election.

          • E. Lee Zimmerman

            True, and I’ve found it on another board where it was asked in the form of a question, and even that intelligence expert stated that it was suspect. I think the point of it being revealed — rumor or not — is to continue to throw fuel on the fire of speculation: if you can keep your audience guessing, then there’s little chance they’ll get to the conclusion in time for it to effect/affect the election, which is all they’re worrying about at this point. If it were anyone other than the Clintons, I might dismiss it flat out … but we know how that brand works.

            • colliemum

              You’re spot on when you write that keeping the speculations going means time gained until 11/6.
              The Clintons are positioning themselves for the post-Obama era, they’ve got access to the same internal poll data as Bathhouse Barry’s campaign has.

              That is why I am disgusted that the various Congress committees are nowhere to be seen. Yes, the representatives are all up for election – but even the most hidebound Rep must have recognised that Trey Gowdy’s stance at the 10/9 hearing won him lots of extra votes. Chaffetz also has done himself no harm.

              But hey – it’s the old BAU inside Washington, where they are all in it together. So uncomfortable questions don’t get asked, and everybody tries their best not to rock the boat.

              • E. Lee Zimmerman

                Amen, mum. All any politico (either side of the aisle) is doing is trying to wait this out. I’m not sure that we’ll see full disclosure after Nov. 6 at this point b/c it’s hard for me and my li’l brain to figure out what went wrong. As I’ve tried to be clear, there are several strong elements here that smack of premeditation. You’ve got strong possibilities of some vast corruption including gun running, and until some enterprising mind can put it all together for us it’s only gonna look worse. I suspect someone somewhere has one or two missing pieces to this puzzle that, when revealed, will speak volumes about what we don’t yet know.

        • VAMOM2

          Which may explain the reason that Hillary has sought “legal counsel”…

    • SPELL9

      Isn’t Ed Klein a Clinton lover? if so, he, also cannot be trusted with the TRUTH.

  • colliemum

    These two interviews are important, because they throw light on two strands of this scandal.
    One strand is the culpability of Hillary Clinton and the State Dept. They were told in terms as clear as can be that the security at Benghazi was non-existent, and that Al Qaida and the group who undertook the attack were active in the region. In addition, there was info from the Libyan government that the Feb 17th Brigade was infiltrated.
    Who provided that information? Ambassador Stevens!

    So – the video lie is even more shameful. There was no ‘fog of war’.

    The second strand goes to the culpability of the POS in the WH.
    Rep. Chaffetz nearly burst through my screen, he was that angry: the military did have ‘capability and proximity’ and didn’t do anything because there was no order from the WH to do so. That is – the POS sat on his hands.

    • a set-up, with security withdrawn, as testified before the hearing on Oct 9th; pleas for security with specific reasons given (active Al Qaeda groups, including the one which then attacked) disregarded;
    • a convenient lie prepared beforehand (video, suddenly available to islamists, a violent demo in Cairo with apologies tweeted from the Cairo Embassy even before that demo and hours before the attack in Benghazi;
    • no ‘directives’ from the WH to the various military, who were able to go and help but were told repeatedly to stand down.

    Not only was there gross dereliction of duty by both Hillary and Bathhouse Barry, we must now also take a very much closer look at two advisors close to them: Huma Abedin and Valerie Jarrett, both with overt and probably covert relationships to the muslim brotherhood and, who knows, even al qaeda.

    And these people ask to be re-elected …

    • keninil

      A setup is right. The “Lame Cherry” blog put forth the hypothesis that this was supposed to be a hostage situation by “friendly” terrorists so O could be seen as a statesman, negotiating freedom for the hostages. Having everyone “stand-down” then makes sense as you do not want to hurt the “friendly” terrorists. Amb. Stevens screwed it up by dying of smoke inhalation and the ex-SEALS by trying to protect him. To me that is the only way the “stand-down” order and the removal in August of the team of Marines makes sense.

      • warpmine

        Man, talk of conspiracy, that would be devastating if proved to be the case. I wouldn’t ever put it past these low life bottom feeders though.

      • E. Lee Zimmerman

        It certainly begs the question. Clearly, it could’ve been an orchestrated ‘October Surprise’ for Li’l Barry.

    Will we hear from Gen. Ham in his own words or from any of the others rescued before the election on the Benghazi affair or only from others speaking for them?

    If the scuttlebutt is true that Gen. Ham wanted to send help to Benghazi but was detained by his second in command, Romney ought to be talking to the good general right about now about retiring early and becoming his SecDef —

  • aussieguy64

    Classified Cable leak?…Smells like CIA is paying back Obama Administration for throwing them under the bus!

    • E. Lee Zimmerman

      BOOM, there it is! Clearly, there are elements trying to keep their noses clean for their own political futures, and that’s why there have been so many ‘leaks’ within this Odministration.

  • All the evidence points to the 911 anniversary coordinated attacks were professionally planned ahead of time, then executed.. was thus not a spontaneous reaction. Obama and Hillary had not only US Ambassador Stevens himself stating the urgently requested need for more security, ie; the State Dept’s own warnings ahead of time, but US Military, NSA, CIA, even foreign govt intelligence warnings of the coming coordinated threats and danger from the terrorist forces in Benghazi Libya. But Obama and Hillary both intentionally chose to ignore it at great cost to American lives, and US National Security.

    Thus, this was a pre-planned coordinated attack, for which whom subversive elements within the US govt, ie; Obama, who gave orders to his henchmen and women- Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice, Leo Panetta, etc on down, who acted, by their actions or inactions, directly and or indirectly, assisted radical Muslim Brotherhood and Al-Queda affiliated islamists/Salafists, to attack our US Embassies all over the Middle East on 911, 2012, resulting in the murder of our US Ambassador and 3 Embassy Security staffers in Benghazi Libya.

    This is the result of Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s official policy of appeasement and capitulation to arab islamic muslim fundamentalists, along with the opposite political govt position of being one of hostility and almost enemy like attitude towards the State of Israel.

    In addition, Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Sec. assistant and personal adviser is Huma Abedin, whose family- ie; mother, father, etc, are directly connected to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, has been instrumental in this strategic US Foreign Middle East Policy change towards radical islamist muslim nations, and against the State of Israel. That which Rep Bachmann tried to have investigated for being a danger to US National Security, but was berated by McCain, Boehner, Graham, and Rogers for so trying to protect America and American lives, but which these RINO’s prevented from occurring, thus they put America and American lives unduly at risk, and as now evident, have indirectly assisted in the deaths of a US Ambassador and 3 Embassy security personnel in Benghazi Libya.

    The Obama Foreign Policy Doctrine-

    Caroline Glick: “Since taking office, Obama has made clear that he views the US as an imperialist power on the world stage. As a result, the overarching goal of Obama’s foreign policy has been to end US global hegemony.” unquote

      I recall that as well. Kind of like deciding to do the dishes after the horse has escaped from the barn.

  • colliemum

    If you think the murk isn’t deep enough yet, then there’s another aspect of this scandal which should not be overlooked:

    What happened to the other Americans who were present? Who were flown out later on 9/12?

    This is an interesting post which asks this and other questions:

    And remember that Charles Woods told Hannity that he’d received an e-mail from one of those other Americans, telling him Ty had saved his life.
    Being the good man he is, Mr Woods didn’t name names, but we might think about the Marines having been flown in from Tripoli, and who arrived at the Annexe … and we might think about that Libyan commander who said they were surprised to find about 30 Americans to evacuate from the Annexe, when they had reckoned with about 10 …

  • Sandra123456

    I’ll bet that if Benghazi ever gets reported on in depth by the MSM it will be after Obama loses on Tuesday. Then they can dump on him and then say, “We reported it!”

    We better not let them get away with that. The answer to “We reported it,” would be “Yes, but not in a timely manner because you were protecting the President.”

    There is only ONE person to blame for this…BARACK!!!!!!!!!!!! He calls the shots (probably ill advised by Jarret as usual)! He took Sandy more seriously than Benghazi! Everything this guy does is for his own political gain! He is a lying INCOMPETENT!!!

    john jay has been analyzing this for quite some time. His post today explains the stakes for Hussein and Clinton.

    “if obama is faced with documentary evidence that he did give such an order, and newt gingrich says that several senators have such proof in hand, then i think it means that obama looses the presidency. if such written confirmation comes out before the election, it is likely to cause him the election. if it comes out after he has won election, then i think it starts impeachment proceedings, and obama looses all credibility with the public and the military regardless of the outcome…….

    ……this isn’t a matter of dipping the cigar into the secretarial pool. this is a matter of loosing an ambassador by dereliction, incompetence, indecision and cowardice. if he ordered the military to stand down, or if any subordinate in his administration gave such an order without clearing it with the boss. this is the dereliction part.

    if he gave the order? well, that raises the issues of incompetence, and/or motive. incompetence is no good defense for him. and, if it is shown that his motive was to collaborate with islamic or leftist entities to attack our rights under the first amendment, to secure some sort of “prior restraint law” on free speech under our legal system when islam is concerned, then i think he faces the very real possibility of a lynching.

      LOSING, LOSING. You lose credibility when you loose those words on us! See? I am distracted from your otherwise cogent message, as I am certain others are.

    • stage9

      Yeah, but all of this, no matter what comes out, is solely based on whether the media will report it and thus far….crickets.

  • The facts are spilling out a little at a time, but they are coming out. Hillary was guilty for not increasing security at the Benghazi consulate after repeated requests from the ambassador there. But it was Obama who did not order help to be sent there on 9/11/2012. They are both going down on this, which is why they tried so hard to cover it up in the first place.

    • LouAnnWatson

      neither one of these so called “wizards of smart” deserve to be in government office ever again

  • stage9

    I’m sorry but the “smoking gun” is NOT the cables informing the administration that a threat was eminent. The “smoking gun” was the fact that there were two sailors on top of that building lazing a target. You don’t laz a target unless you’re expecting someone to deliver laser-guided munitions. The laser-designator itself is NOT a weapon. It only marks a target for the ordinance to strike!

    The rule is to laz the target only when a fixed wing or rotary wing aircraft is within striking distance, otherwise the enemy could potentially reposition. Those two sailors had something overhead they were lazing the target for.

    And they were in communication with someone in command. The question is: WHO??

    • SoLongSong

      My mustache (if I had one) would be on OBAMA.

      • stage9

        And command has no authorization without his approval. They were operating within foreign airspace and no one else can make the call in that situation except the president.

  • If Obeyme is re-elected, impeachment hearings are most definitely in order.

    • SoLongSong

      Bite your tongue! I can’t even entertain the thought that he would EVER be re-elected.

      How ’bout we just throw him in jail – or send him to Guantanomo after he loses?

  • wallwatchman

    The story from congressman chaffetz on the ambassador’s call to tripoli, was chilling! I can only imagine the terror in the ambassador’s voice. And this guy in tripoli, trying to do what he could, and then ultimately not able to reach Steven’s again, just heart wrenching!

    How cold must you be mr president?! To fail so miserably on the protection of these people, and then only care about covering your butt afterwards! Like chaffetz said, we still have injured people in hospitals who barely got out alive, and they have to listen to this garbage!! I’m so sick of this!! Those representing us in congress, pin this guy and his admin to the wall on this already!!!

  • SoLongSong

    FINALLY! A photo of Obama in the situation room for Benghazi!!

  • ryanomaniac

    Only one word necessary to describe Barack Obama. Coward.

    • Col Richardson

      There is a huge question awaiting public hearings, BOEHNER! Interviews with some of the 30 people rescued from the Mission. How come they have socks stuffed in their mouths? HMMM, BOEHNER?

  • Galatiansch2vs20

    I’ll say this is a ‘smoking gun’!

  • Col Richardson

    I reviewed ABC, NBC, CBS, USATODAY, AND EVEN AL JAZEERA this morning, Nov one, and there was not a peep about Benghazi. Those who are only getting their news from these places are ignorant useful idiots of the Obamao regime. God help us.

    Time to drain the swamp that is commonly referred to as the state department.

  • rosie12002

    Remember Benghazi. We must never forget and demand justice from our government and press for helping in the cover up! Perhaps it is time we start calling the sponsers of the press, and say if they dont tell the truth we will boycott you’re product’s. Also let’s make this a nation wide boycott. This is my battle cry REMEMBER BENGHAZI!

  • Orangeone

    Sorry, know this is a bit O/T but here is a link to a current stmt by my favorite Trey Gowdy on #Libya, #Benghazi.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      Sounds completely on topic me Orange.

    • iaintlyin

      John Boener, meet a couple of real Americans, Mr Chaffetz and Mr Gowdy. Mr Boener, you can step down now

      • Orangeone

        I second that motion!

  • Quote- “The people who died should be honored with the facts.” I completely agree.

  • Conservator1

    The Obama administration threw our intelligence community under the bus. After 4 years as president, this was a moronic attempt to hide the truth until after the election.

    When you blame those with all of the information, it shouldn’t be a surprise they would leak the truth about the terrorist attack in Benghazi to news outlets prior to the election. The intelligence community doesn’t accept blame for incompetence of any administration.

  • Dodoforever Canspell

    Do you guys know what Cross Border Order (CBO) happens to be? I don’t know for sure if what I read this morning somewhere in the blogosphere is accurate or not. According to that blogger, the order to stand down would have had to come from one person and one person only, the President of the United States …. nobody else has that authority.

    Is that true? And, if true …. then shouldn’t the impeachment papers be ready already?

  • Dino T. Ierardo

    A powerfully deserved denunciation of Obama antics…. I wish Romney would step up and attack him directly over the weekend …. especially since the TV pundits are counseling not to take the risk. This is his most significant opportunity to display leadership on his own timeline, while others may not take the initiative …time is awasting …speak up Mitt !!.

  • WAStateConcernedCitizen

    When is the media going to address that Admiral Charles M. Gaouette and U.S. General Carter Ham being fired over the Benghazi cover-up. The 2 Generals were FIRED for disobeying orders to help those who were killed during the Benghazi terrorist attack??
