By The Right Scoop


Rep. Trey Gowdy masterfully goes after Adm. Mullen on the fact that he choose not to interview Hillary Clinton on Benghazi, despite the fact that she was responsible for all of it. It’s excellent as usual.

Watch:

 

Here’s another by Gowdy from today in the same hearing:

Rep. Gowdy tells the families of the Benghazi victims that the American people have not forgotten about Benghazi.

    Have you ever seen any bunch of people who are so unaware and unknowing of every aspect of their job as the people in and around this administration? (/sarc)

    • nickshaw

      You really think they are unaware and unknowing?

      • Stehekin912

        of course not – but they sure claim to be! Maybe I need to put the /sarc on my comment.

        • nickshaw

          Nope! It’s cool with me ’cause it’s still true. ;-)

    • warpmine

      Ann Barnhardt goes on about this again and again regarding the current military leaders that are totally inept when it comes to morality, constitutional obligations regarding their oath and the depravity that seems to follow the whole lot of them.
      George Washington would have certainly dismissed most of them for their obvious lack of moral character. Remember, Mullen is one of those that advocated for the queering of the military which is a great but sad indicator of both good character and obligations to our Lord. If this guy is a practicing Christian then Obama is the smartest guy ever.

    • Steve Angell

      Not just this administration. Many of these people who protect government and say to hades with the people were appointed by GW Bush. These two were both were appointed by GW Bush to very high positions in Government.

      Yet it is obvious all they did was carry water for Hillary and Obama both are members of the CFR.

      This was not an investigation just a cover up.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

        Mullen was a careerist. He did things to please the boss so he could make rank. What he did, he did well, but he does black or does white with the same ease..

  • nibblesyble

    I was waitin for this! Gowdy is like a satisfying cup of coffee, always hits the spot!

  • billma40

    From the first panel Rep Maloney tried to portray the republicans wanting to put any blame on Hillary as an attack on women.

    The second panel with Father of Ty woods and mother of Ambassador Smith. 54;35

  • nickshaw

    Much as lib’ruls love to denigrate southerners as slow, Trey certainly kicks the slats out of that, don’t it?

    • jlbs

      Yup!!

  • Swamp Fox

    Every Democratic committee member that left that room has blood on their hands. They are as guilty as the people that allowed those lives to be taken that night without giving one ounce of aid to their situation. Disgusting and disgraceful. Frauds… all of them… frauds.

  • Soka Sema

    Man, If I ever need a lawyer, I want Mr Gowdy to rep me.

  • mickeyco

    I so wish he were the Speaker: an excellent brain, composure (I’d have belted the admiral.) and such a good heart.

  • Pyrran

    How the heck that guy EVER got to be an admiral escapes me.
    Mullen? Nope, Mullet fits better.

    • Steve Angell

      Because only but kissers get advanced.

      • Sunshine43

        That’s what I’ve been told also! Otherwise you remain a Lt Col or maybe a Col (Army, A.F. Or Marine) or Capt (Navy)! Any rank above those becomes politically assigned!

        • http://boogieforward.us/ K-Bob

          Some of the mil site writers have indicated that an academy ring is also pretty critical.

          Having never served, I wouldn’t know. But it makes sense from what I know of organizations.

          • tinlizzieowner

            “Having never served, I wouldn’t know. But it makes sense from what I know of organizations”.
            Having served, I would. Generals that ruffle political feathers (Patton, MacArthur), remain Generals. Those who toe the political line (Eisenhower), go on to become President.

  • stage9

    In other words, in regard to the “fact witness”, the reason she didn’t make a good witness was because she would’ve potentially and inadvertently divulged information that would’ve exposed the negligence of the department, so that’s why they needed a different witness. She wasn’t as “rehearsed” as others were.

    • Sunshine43

      BINGO!!!!!

  • sybilll

    I find his constraint admirable. I’m afraid I’d let the 4-letter words fly freely.

  • virginiagentleman1

    What a fire breather Gowdy is! I can see this young man from South Carolina as Speaker.
    Mullins on the other hand is either a liar or incompetent. Like so many millions of other men who wore Navy blue, I think that Mullins is a disgrace to the uniform he once wore!

    • Sunshine43

      Amen to all of that!

    • http://www.grouchyconservativepundits.org/index.php RickZ

      All admirals/generals are political animals. They don’t get to that rank by being any other way. It just depends on the political winds at the time of their review boards and who is in Congress and the White House. Congress must approve all officer promotions below the rank of admiral/general; it is the President who approves the appointments of generals and admirals. Think of those weasels, Wesley Clark and Colin Powell, political generals without having so much as an iota of hint of a spine. This clown Mullen is no different.

      http://www.ehow.com/about_6629549_can-grant-military-rank_.html

  • Steve Angell

    Mullen and Pickering are an embarrassment to America and all it used to stand for.

    They should resign in disgrace. To perform such a shoddy and obviously partisan cover up of four deaths should make them accessories to murder after the fact. Their report has made prosecuting these terrorist impossible or fixing what is broke that allowed this attack.

  • Snellville bob

    Who ordered the attack on Benghazi? My money is on Al Queda since it
    was 9/11 but it could have been any one of dozens of people in the area.
    Syria, Iran and Russia top the list but it could have been Turkey,
    Iraq, Israel China or others. Blaming the video still seems to be
    working at covering this as no senate or other commission has even brought it
    up. I will bet that every government mentioned above knows who did it,
    but the American people probably will never be told.
    Is Obama now going to supply arms to the group that did this?

    Reference: About a week after 9/11 a member of the guns for hire who was guarding the embassy was wounded in the leg by his brothers who attacked it. He was interviewed in the hospital and said that two foreigners who were obviously in charge of the attack passed him and someone told him to get out and he would live. Who were these two?

  • proudhispanicconservative

    I like Gowdy on this issue he has been a hawk, but when it comes to immigration he is a rino and a supporter of amnesty, and it begs the question how can you be such a patriot on this issue and on the most important issue that would effect the most americans he is something else.

    • Eagle1

      He is a former prosecutor, so he is questioning Mullin as one. Trying to get to the bottom of the four murders and they were murdered.
      If you are looking for a perfect person in Congress to meet all your criteria, you’ll never be satisfied.

      • waffle_anna

        We need to set aside all of our differences now. Whether you support amnesty or not, it matters not in this case. What matters is stopping this behemoth of a healthcare legislation and bring justice to the victims of Benghazi, F&F and the IRS scandals that this imperial president has been orchestrating.

        You may not like Marco Rubio or Trey Gowdy on amnesty, but when the safety and integrity of this great nation is at stake, they will voice their concerns loudly and clearly. Divide-et-impera is Alinsky’s tactic. Do not let Alinsky tactics divide us.

        • proudhispanicconservative

          Agreed!!!!

        • nibblesyble

          Well said!!

      • proudhispanicconservative

        I concur…,,

    • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PFb6NU1giRA Booker

      I think he is just listening to his constituents on that issue. His opinion is more nuanced. We can’t check the boxes for everybody.

  • sjmom

    Wow! Gowdy is good. I hope he gets to interrogate Hillary.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

      I doubt she will come. But she can defend herself. She is not the smartest woman in the world,and she is a liar, but she is a fighter.

      • russellbennett

        But she is not a good witness, you can tell when she is lying.

        • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

          One-fifth of the voters know that she is lying but do not care. They knows she is one of them and they want her to exercise power as long as she can because she will do with it pretty much what they wish.

  • E. Lee Zimmerman

    Paul Reubens has already signed to play Adm. Mullen in the Lifetime movie version of events.

  • 57thunderbird

    With people like Mullen in the military,it is no wonder things are upside down in the military.What a loaf of BS.They are covering for Hitlary.

  • BAW

    Listening to this explains why the Benghazi “deniers” seem to be upping their efforts today.

    Probably specifically the Clinton defenders because this making her look worse and worse and more and more culpable both in the unnecessary and avoidable loss of life but in the cover up as well.

  • Press Watchusa

    I am so disappointed in the “Brass” and how they cover for this administration
    I just don’t understand why they behave this way
    If they protect a traitor – They are complicit !
    ******************************************
    This Man Gowdy is a force to be reckoned with!

    • tinlizzieowner

      “I am so disappointed in the “Brass” and how they cover for this administration I just don’t understand why they behave this way”.
      Because the stars in their eyes are bigger than the stars on their uniforms, when it comes to advancing into politics, that’s why. This isn’t anything new.

      • russellbennett

        The ones that won’t protect Obama have been removed. General Hamm was demoted during the attack in Benghazi. for refusing to stand down.

    • HCTUB

      I just don’t understand . Maybe it’s money and power , but to lie for the likes of Pinocchio who is a know liar . Benghazi video , and healthcare . Why he is still in office beats me . This guy is dangerous with his inept decisions he makes . 3 more years . God save the king . No , God Red Line the King .

  • opinionatedhermit

    The testimony from Adm. Mullens was atrocious. Rep. Gowdy tore him apart. Tore him apart in a most gentle and Southern style.

    +1 Rep. Gowdy

  • Scolded for the Truth

    I was in the Navy when this admiral was CNO and was affected quite negatively by his office. He is a political hack. You’ll never get the whole truth from him, neither do I think he could spot the truth. You need to know that he could never have been assigned the the Joint Chiefs of Staff position unless he was politically acceptable to the Obama Administration. I love seeing him getting grilled. He deserves being grilled and I hope that he can get caught in a lie, not that anyone would do anything about it.

    • Sunshine43

      Ditto!!!

    • russellbennett

      You just said what everyone is thinking.

  • NJK

    Anyone who worked under Obama is sleazy. No one with any character would work for him. He is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

  • http://black-avenger-1.livejournal.com/profile VirusX

    Mullen and Cummings, both, are punks.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/John-R-Schuh/100001894380487 John R Schuh

    Mullen did not question Clinton because she would have been a bad witness! ;)

  • Jazzee

    the GOP should let GOWDY do all the questions former prosecutor he knows how to do it..they should turn their time over to him and just let him go…………….God sometimes it makes me sick how DUMB and wimpy the GOP IS

    • russellbennett

      Every one from both parties seem to be afraid to say anything bad about Hillary except Gowdy. She is being protected for some dam reason yet every one knows she failed to preform her duties and 4 people died as a result. She is responsible for their deaths. If she was ordered to do the things that caused their deaths she needs to say so.

  • Jazzee

    this man should be our attorney general
    he is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Love Gowdy

    • russellbennett

      The word Brilliant was invented to describe Trey Gowdy.

  • twoblackcats

    Such a patriot.

  • MallardTDrake

    Gowdy, Paul, Cruz. If they are the future of the GOP, then we are in good hands.

    • russellbennett

      I would like to see Sara Palin join that group.

      • creeper

        Not a chance. RINOs think she’s “stupid”. These Dems in Rep clothing will deprive us of the one person who could fix this mess.

      • fdup2

        I would love to see Sara run against Hillary. What a cat fight we would have. I think we would see fur fly and Hillary’s pant suit would never stand up to Sara’s camouflage.

  • notpilgrims2

    There was a lot of talk about someone being a “fact witness.” Who knows what that means in the context of Benghazi.

    • tinlizzieowner

      ‘Fact’. There are some 30 people who were there at the time who got away (thanks in part to the efforts of the dead Seals) and have been told by this administration to ‘keep their mouths shut’, ‘in the interests of national security’ (Hillary security), of course. ;-) ;-)

      • Patriot077

        I guess they aren’t considered good “fact witnesses” either!

    • russellbennett

      I am sure Trey Gowdy does.

  • JoeTulsa

    Gowdy is good on Benghazi.
    The problem is that this committee has no teeth.
    This committee has no power.
    There needs to be a select committee with trained investigators and subpoena power.
    They can badger these witnesses until the cows come home.
    It is a waste of time until we get a select committee.

  • JoeTulsa

    Boehner is in bed with Obama.
    Boehner has refused to allow a select committee on Benghazi.
    Boehner is protecting the president rather than seeking the truth.
    Washington is such a sleazy place where favors are granted in smoky backrooms.

    • Sheila Samsal

      No…The sudden turn Boehner is…they found something on. He’s been too quiet.

  • Jack Deth

    Memo to Adm. Mullins:

    Buy a new pair of shoes. And learn how to run out the clock and tap dance on HELL of a lot better!

  • twoblackcats

    I’m struck by how he kept saying that he has experience talking to Congress and that the woman lawyer didn’t. We don’t want experienced Congressional “witnesses,” we want the truth. So is there a group of people in DC that is used to going to Congressional hearings? Good lord.

  • Sentinel

    Trey Gowdy is a surgeon. Quite remarkable that all these very important people who provide (corrupt or incomplete) testimony – including Shrillary – know so little.

  • dba_vagabond_trader

    Obviously Mullen is covering the Hildabeast rear end, wonder why since she despises the military and he is retired.

  • terpsez108

    I really don’t think Hillary was responsible– it was a CIA- Petreaus — and DOD –Panetta thing —

    personally I think Hillary co-opted the cover-up because she is a seasoned veteran liar — and has plenty of experience as a Felony perpetrator — that is why the Petraeus affair thing came out a few days before he was set to go before Congress– to diminish his integrity and coerce him into knowing he better do nothing to rock the Boat–

    Panetta is just a member of the Crime Family and will never give up a thing–ala Sandy Berger James Carville or Bert Lance– they had all night to fabricate a plan and announce that an “Ambassador” had been seized and murdered.. The “Ambassador” came from a CIA hot bed in Central America where they all come from

    Think about it did we really have an “Ambassador” appointed to a power vacuum Country wrought with al ‘Qaeda insurgents–where is the press release naming him?
    ( the so-called “Ambassador” had no resume on the internet that day I know I searched it to find out if he was a member of Chicago’s Low Down Club)
    — in a weigh station on their way to Syria for their next Arab Spring Conquest?–

    and who was lauded for Arab Spring?– Barack Obama — why isn’t Obama associated with malfeasance in this negligence and the obvious black op crime?

    • CapeLady

      She was Secretary of State – the responsibility for their protection was hers.

  • Conservative_Hippie

    I saw this live and you could see as soon as the mic turned to Gowdy, Mullen started to shift in his chair and get nervous! He knew he was about to be reamed a new one!

  • Mark Burns

    Mullens is a butt mokney for Oblahoblah and Clintoon

  • USMC 64-68

    Gowdy showed character in his address to the parents of the slain heroes.

    In contrast, Dear Leader, Biden, Hillary, and the rest of the gutless, corrupt progressive democrats are revealed for the crass, un-American subversives they are – they won’t even honor these grieving parents with a follow-up phone call.

    The democrats who walked out are despicable.

  • MiketheMarine

    Gowdy rocks. My father graduated with Mike Mullen and I have met him and like him. This just goes to prove that once a good warrior accepts a star he trades his soul to satan and politics. I think he screwed up and should pay a price for doing an inferior job and ignoring his oath.

  • colliemum

    I noticed how Trey Gowdy made a tiny pause between his questions to let Mullen’s answers about what Hillary didn’t do really sink in: no, she didn’t review; no, she didn’t know; no – no – no …
    That was masterful and condemned Hillary out of the mouths of Admiral Mullen.

    I wish they could sub-poena her and have Gowdy examine her … giving him extra time …

  • ADLoggy

    Mullens was one of the worst CJCS in my 25 years of service. His main job was to push social change in the military for the liberal demoncrats. He is covering for the demoncrats “new and improved messiah,” Hillary Clinton by ensuring that all blame was deflected away from her.

  • gemini7

    First, it was Whitewater, now Benghazi, and Hillary thinks she’s presidential material? LOL

  • lewellynb

    Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. You repugnicants really need to get a life. Between harping on this non story (Alan Grayson explains why it’s a non story here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jynK4WVUg8c ) and and voting 40+ times to try and overturn Obamacare you’re coming off like a collective bunch of idiots.

    • Lori Toupal

      Keep at it, honey. When the whole blasted country becomes something you can’t even recognize and you’re whining about how you want your privacy and liberty back, just remember that you could have taken the time to find out the truth and didn’t choose to do so. Now pull your head back inside your shell and keep pretending that the ‘repugnicants’ (and the rest of us) are all making something out of nothing. While you do that, we’ll try and save our country, including the mindless kool-aid drinkers like you.

      • Bunnykitten

        @Lori–you took the very words out of my mouth! Preach it!

      • fdup2

        Lori Toupal, thank you for saying what I wanted to. lewellynb is a very lost soul and so that makes it (don’t know if it is a he/she) soulless. Four men died because of incompetence or outright treason, and we need to know which one. If it was incompetence then people need to be fired and if it was treason then someone needs to be sent to jail. All the evidence indicates that it was a failed kidnapping attempt, masterminded by Obama, of Amasador Stevens to exchange him for the Blink Shiek. If that is the case Obama and everyone involved needs to be prosecuted for kidnapping and murder.

      • lewellynb

        Lori, honey. The subject of this thread is “Benghazi, so lets try sticking to that instead of wandering off into the weeds. We can discuss “privacy and liberty” some other time – assuming the republican’ts haven’t legislated those two “vices” out of existence for us common folks.

        Now, did you watch the, Alan Grayson, video I provided a link too? If so then tell me, if you can, what he said that was wrong? Benghazi, like the “Whitewater” mention by gemini7 below, is nothing but smoke and mirrors. As Mr. Grayson clearly illustrated the “Smoking Gun” your party is constantly searching for doesn’t exist. You republican’ts spent several million dollars investigating Whitewater and turned up – NOTHING. Your party uses that kinda nonsense to keep you Fox Fans in a tizzy so you won’t have time to stop and realize that they’re playing you for a fool.

        Wake up and smell the stink.

      • lewellynb

        Nobody prosecuted Bush and Cheney for “War Crimes” either, did they? Do you ever wonder how many innocent people died during all of that?

        I don’t recall your whining about that.

        As for the 4 people who died, I’m as displeased about that as you are but if you’d watch & listen to the Alan Grayson video I provided a link to (above) you’d know that, like it or not, it wasn’t the Obama administrations fault. Sometimes s*it happens.

        • Gwen Siert Wrich

          Did you know me then sir? I loathe Bush taking us into war. Seems like the chemical weapons were there tho…heard of Syria?…hum? If you would watch and listen to senate and house hearings …you would know that not only did SH**T happen…nobody on one side of the aisle gives a rat’s ass about those people it affected?? You can defend that all you want. Tell the mother’s that “SH**T happens.” Tell her that a video-maker was responsible for a random riot. Tell her that weeks and weeks later. Tell her that our President stood up at the UN weeks afterwards and STILL talked about a stupid You Tube video and blamed that on the violence. Why are people so afraid of the TRUTH?!!?!?

        • factsobill

But somehow in the delusional world where you live the progressives are destroying the social and financial “fabric” of our nation.

        • mharper42

      Alan Grayson? Nobody is going to listen to that space cadet. Pretty simple and you can repeat that it is a “non story” as many time as you and other liberals like. The question then is, if its such a “non story”…why all the hiding? Can’t interview eyewitnesses, documents sealed, youtube video propaganda, principal players not interviewed by ARB, etc…Seems like a lot of trouble to go to for a “non-story”.

    Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi. You repugnicants really need to get a life. Between harping on this non story
    =====
    a non-story? I it were a Republican president and Sec of State, would you find it a non-story? And Alan Greyson? Really? The whack-job?
    Let me guess, it is a non story because there were several embassy attacks under Bush and they were not this big of a story??
    Did you know that in each of those events, those people did not have months of advance warning? That they had not been begging for added security? That they had not had their security lessened? That it wasn’t Americans who died? That most of the terrorists involved were killed or prosecuted? That Bush and his Sec of State did not blame an innocent citizen? That they did nothing to cover it up? That they did not lie about it to the public? That they did not stonewall any investigation? That the Democrats in charge of the Senate and House did not bother to investigate any of these events? Did not care enough to bother?

    I really don’t think Hillary was responsible– it was a CIA- Petreaus — and DOD –Panetta thing —
    ====
    really? Innocent little Hilary wasn’t responsible?
    She ran for the office of President in 2008, claiming she was better suited, more experienced and more responsible than Obama. The left tossed her over like dog crap on an old shoe.
    She took the position of Sec of State. Nobody begged her to take the job. She wanted it. SHE told Congress she had the experience required for the responsibilities of the job.
    She was the head of the State Dept. HER job to know what was happening at her embassies, what problems there were, and what was being done to address it. I could see if she wasn’t up to date on the embassy in Britain, but in a country at war? One we started?
    If, as the head of State, it was not her responsibility to know that there had been multiple attacks, whose was it?
    If it wasn’t her responsibility to make sure that an embassy in a war zone was protected and defended, whose was it?
    If it wasn’t her responsibility to order help be sent immediately upon hearing of the attack, within moments of it beginning on 9/11/12, whose was it?
    If it wasn’t her responsibility to be honest about what had happened to the families of those who died, the American public and Congress, while testifying, whose was it?
    Who FORCED Hilary to refuse additional security for her people?
    Who FORCED Hilary to pull most of the security detail already there?
    Who FORCED Hilary to ignore the attack during the 7 hours it occurred, without one attempt to reach these people?
    Who FORCED Hilary to blame it on a video?
    Who FORCED Hilary to lie to America and the families and Congress?
    Who FORCED Hilary to continue the lie, weeks after it became common knowledge that she knew the truth immediately?
    Who FORCED Hilary to decide that the situation, the lapses, the decisions made, the reasons, the results and the lies and aftermath ‘made no difference. to her?
    Hilary, bud. Just Hilary. And her upcoming bid for libs to not treat her like a dog again

      • lewellynb

        How is my take biased? Grayson asked logical questions and Kennedy either gave factual responses or he didn’t. If he didn’t why aren’t Darrel Issa and the republicants issuing subpoena’s and subjecting him to legal repercussions. That’s how it’s supposed to work, isn’t it?

        In fact why hasn’t Issa gotten to the bottom of anything his committee has spent the last few years “looking into?” Could it be because all the republican claims are B.S.?

        Seems to me that if what you and your cronies are claiming is true the dereliction of duties lay at the feet of Dubious Darrel.

  • Iowa48

    The Admiral was smacked in the gonads with the glaring fact that the reason he didn’t know the answers to the Congressman Gowdy’s questions is because he did not do his job with the ARB and interview the two people who had all of the answers, Obama and Clinton. To think that a person of Mullen’s stature and experience was too stupid to do the job is something of a stretch, when the real facts show that he willfully ignored his duty and his responsibility to the American people and the families of the Benghazi victims. There can be no other conclusion except that Mullen is just another corrupt political hack completely lacking in ethics and honor. Kudos to Mr. Gowdy, well done sir, well done.

    • spacelink

      Mullen is nothing more than a puppet in a pretty uniform, just like the rest of them and Dempsey is right now! We have NO military leadership and these blackboot thugs will goose step right in place with the rest of them if o ever initiates martial law!

  • kong1967

    It’s bad enough that we have to put up with Obama’s criminal scandals, but the cover-ups and fake investigations are scandals in themselves.

    It’s the same after every scandal. From the IRS to Benghazi to Fast and Furious. When you promote the people responsible and fire people that had no authority to do anything, then you don’t even interview the people in charge….it’s pretty obvious it’s a fake investigation and cover up of intentional activities conducted illegally or shamefully by the WH.

      .

    • Jimmy Gee

      This whole line of questioning by Grayson is nothing more than a red herring. It doesnt matter whether the questions he asked were wrong or right if he is asking the wrong questions. The facts are that thee ambassor asked for increased security the very day of the attack and was denied. When the attack began, no one knew how long it would last but through out no one lifted a finger to help. The attack actually lasted at least 7 hours. Someone gave the order early on for the militaryy to stand down. To this day no one knows who gave the order. When Grayson asked was there any forces close enough to respond with in the first 90 minutes, in order to save the ambassador, the answer may have been correct when he answered no…but how did anyone know how long it was going to be before he was killed??? If it was some one you cared about would you be saying, gee, he might be dead in 90 minutes so theres no use in trying to send help. The fact is that the President went to bed and Hillary and everyone else let four Americans die. Period.

    • Hind Sight

      Having listened to both Gowdy and Grayson, I am reminded that there are two forms of reasoning; inductive and deductive. Grayson uses deductive; employing logic and reasoning to prove a conclusion previously arrived at. Gowdy uses Inductive; seeking particular facts and information to form a conclusion. You and Grayson cannot fathom why the administration or state dept. would not tell the truth, so you accept what you’ve been told, and never look beyond face value. Gowdy and a large portion of the informed citizenry smell a big stinking pile of lies, and want to know why… The fact that the lies are associated with the death of four honorable Americans magnifies the lying issue. The United States not only had at its disposal, forces trained specifically for this kind of circumstance, but they were ready to go, and most likely could have save some if not all of those people. This is the lie that caught my attention, because I was part of one of those units, in that region. There are many lies here that are highly visible to others. Trey Gowdy is right for pursuing this matter.

      • lewellynb

        Thank you for what is, thus far, the “first” and only reasonably intelligent response in this thread. Wrong though it is it’s still comforting to know that there is at least one Republicans out there who can conjure up a coherent paragraph and do it without name calling wallowing in the gutter.

        Unfortunately your “inductive v/s deductive analogy is Smoke and Mirrors. It’s nothing more than the “glass half full or half empty” argument dressed up to sounds more intellectual.

        The problem is that you republican’ts won’t accept the fact that as unfortunate as these four deaths obviously are – stuff happens. And as anyone who’s ever been in combat will tell you it usually happens in ways that no one foresaw.

        The truth here is that you republican’ts are never going to be satisfied until you have Obama’s head on a pike – and that just “ain’t” going to happen.

        Get used to it.

        • http://08hayabusa.blogspot.com/ 08hayabusa

          It’s not a question of accepting the four deaths Lefty. Nice try at your obfuscation of the facts.

          What we won’t accept here are multiple omissions of truths, outright lies, poor leadership, the refusal to follow the governments own rules for security at our overseas facilities, and the complete lack of defense of our own people. Up until Obama and Hillary, stand down orders for people in trouble was unheard of, and if nothing else it is certainly indefensible.

          There is no plausible deny-ability for either of these UN-Americans scumbags as to why they didn’t even try to save them. They have no excuse and they bring disgrace to the offices they hold or held in the case of Killary.

      Maybe if you would debate in a more civil tone, people would pay more attention to you. I have learned this from years on the net: When liberals are losing an argument, or are feeling backed into a corner, the first thing they do is start using personal attacks. The second thing they do is play the race card. In the old days, that worked well for them. It doesn’t work so well anymore. So, learn to watch your mouth and more people will take you seriously.

During this i read about Barry’O making NASA’s new goals/campaign/mission…whatever, was to revolve around “muslim outreach”. I thought that it was either a joke, or the most reatarded thing I had ever heard. I fired off emails to NASA’s pres and mentioned all this in my next message. I had no idea what his politics were, and never thought to…I couldn’t believe what I had just read, and couldn’t imagine that anyone who wasn’t completely corrupt, or a total moron, could think that this was a good idea! Well, his next message had a huffingtonpost link to a glowing review of NASA’s new mission, and his opinion that this might have unlimited positive possibilities for a ‘new’ NASA, that we haven’t even thought of yet…
        I’m thinking “…muslim outreach?” We havent spoken since and you pointing out the the huffpo-po post gave me a good chuckle and reminded me of that strange afternoon…Thanks!
