Michele Bachmann GRILLS Former CIA Deputy on changes made to Benghazi talking points

Michele Bachmann would not let the former CIA Deputy Director get away with arguing that the intelligence they had at the time was that the Benghazi attacks were caused by a video, especially when the intelligence on the ground said something quite different.

    She nailed it.

  • Stehekin912

    I am so going to miss our Iron Lady. I hope she remains influential in our political world.

      Spot on!

    • gigi0f3

      Agree squared!!!

  • bbwh

    What a worm that guy is.

    • notebene

      I’d like to punch the punk right in the mouth! He’s lying and his lies caused death…he could use a good jaw dislocation!

      • Sentinel

        I feel the same way…

      • Steve Angell

        He should be executed for treason.

  • Stehekin912

    Also… I am getting sick and tired of their “narrative”. Are we supposed to be impressed by this big word? Ooooooooh

    Take your lying “narrative” and shove it you worm. No one cared, no one was interested, no one did anything, then covered up their lies like a cat covers……(your imagination here).

    If the worm is right, then our State Department needs to be fired for gross incompetence.. If the worm is lying, then they need to be fired for lying. No matter what, the stink is on them and it will not come off no matter how hard they whitewash.

    Remember the heroes of Benghazi!

        Amen! Amen!

    • Patriot077

      I want someone to focus on the timing of their “incompetence” being so close to the elections … their lies and stonewalling certainly Did make a difference. Hiding the survivors is a big tip off!

  • DINORightMarie

    Awesome. Too bad this won’t go after the regime, because of such protective sycophants as this tool she grilled.

    Benghazi is a scandal that will one day be exposed – and those who were involved should ALL go to jail, IMHO. From POTUS, to Hillary “What difference at this point does it make?!?!” Clinton, on down the line.

    I’m gonna miss Michelle.

    • Sentinel

      Agreed 100%!

    • Meh. Too much speechifying for me. I’d rather there be a constant boom-boom-boom between question and answer. Catch these idiots in their lies. That’s more dynamic than this.

    • Merle Conger

      I am going to miss Michelle also. Perhaps we will see her in Cruz’s cabinet.

  • Sentinel

    Alright, let’s set the FACT that there’s a MASSIVE cover up aside… because these liars, corrupt, inhuman cowards made a conscious decision to let those men die… it’s literally indisputable. But let’s set that aside for a moment. What moves me to anger and violence is the snotty, arrogant, smug demeanor of each of these Aholes (well except for Clapper… he was sweating bullets). These people have no soul and have the gall to act like this is all beneath them. They got caught! And now they’re angry about it… think there’s some sort of statute of limitations or something. Furthermore, they KNOW the damned corrupt MSM is going to do all they can to provide cover for these devils. So they have the luxury of sitting there, sneering and leering and lying because unfortunately, with this corrupt regime and this criminal media in place, the weasels will slink away to their hush-money pay-offs and live quite comfortably (see Lois Lerner). These people need to be pounded and brought in EVERY SINGLE DAY until they finally tell the truth, the whole truth AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!
    I could go on but it would be nothing more than venting. I commend Michelle Bachman (who would have made a great President imo) for a great line of statements (facts) and questioning. These lying cruds deserve jail at the very least… and God will judge them harshly for their part in this whole evil affair.

      A standing ovation for you, sir!

      • Sentinel

        Thank you very much! 🙂

  • SisterMary

    Well, Mr. Former CIA Deputy Director, if there were multiple pieces of information that made up your assertion that it was the video, could we please see them? Thanks so much.

  • Bekuzikan

    Michele did a great job. He has had a year and a half to prepare for these questions and still came across as a canned-speech-liar. He started every untruth with.. SO… (then proceeded to layout the web of misdirection’s)Then he said “Irregardless” TWICE!
    It’s Regardless dummy!

  • Yes, his body language in that absolute last exchange (from the 9:00 minute mark onward) practically screams, “I’m being dishonest now.”

    Having followed much of this, I will say that I don’t doubt that there could’ve been massive confusion on this side of the pond relative to what pieces of information are we going to ‘invest’ with in order to establish a “narrative” (which is an increasingly strange word choice given the fact that “narrative” practically implies “story,” but I’ll let that be). However, by Sunday morning — when the li’l Obama idiot began trafficking obvious misinformation at that point — the “narrative” had fully been exposed as fiction.

    Friday night? Probably unclear. Saturday morning? Maybe still a bit unclear. Saturday evening? Yeah, this sure looks like an attack. Sunday morning? It definitely was an attack.

  • aquaviva

    I like Michelle, and she talks a lot here, but the way to hang a witness is to ask ? after followup ? to let the witness speak, and implicate themselves. Unfortunately, that didn’t happen here. This is a whitewash led by Chairman Mike Rogers who “wants to get this matter behind him.”

    • badbadlibs

      She was educating the uneducated public. Heaven knows we have to take every opportunity since the leftist media and leftist congress won’t do it.

      • Lady_Penguin

        Good point, she was reminding people of the details which are easy to forget or are lost in the spin.

      • gigi0f3

        She needed to do this. You are right-real education needs to take place for seas to part!

      • DCGere

        I’m afraid there’s no educating the LIVs. As the attack went down, it was blacked out at a major US mil ops ctr. I’ve been told that’s just my “opinion” (never mind I know for a fact this happened.) You can’t change the mind of those who are in denial to support this admin through it all. Ugh…

        • badbadlibs

          What are the implications that it was blacked out?

          • DCGere

            Well we’ll never know since they couldn’t respond as it went down. They sure as h*ll would have been asking what was being done to aid our men. Can’t say more than that (would give away location). Beyond that, the implication is it was blacked out suggests someone in the upper level ordered it blacked out. Why? Your guess is as good as mine…

            • badbadlibs

              Ok, thanks….I think. 😉

  • badbadlibs

    It must be a b*tch to have to answer to one person for a level of dereliction of duty that murdered four Americans and then lie thru your teeth to cover it up. Then go home and have dinner with the wifey.

  • Lady_Penguin

    I watched Morell smirk and snark his way through the hearings this morning. He was especially condescending to Rep Bachman.

  • JacksonPearson

    Re-posted from another thread….
    Ex CIA Michael Morell is the typical head nodding, tool, for any administration, dem or pub. He gives them exactly what they want to hear. Tool’s like Morell will never push back, or give an administration a NO.

    Says it all:
    Since retiring from the CIA, Morell has taken on
    high-profile assignments for the administration, including the NSA
    review panel and the President’s Intelligence Advisory Board. He is now
    a paid TV commentator for CBS News, has a book deal, and works for
    Beacon Global Strategies, whose founder Philippe Reines has been
    described by the New York Times magazine as Hillary Clinton’s “principal
    gatekeeper.” In short, Michael Morell is a RAT!

    • PNWShan

      Sounds like he’ll be expecting a job in a future Hillary Administration. (God forbid!)

  • poorhardworker

    Any one else remember the Libyan President on TV saying it was an attack? I sure do…and I remember Obama blaming the video in front of the UN! Pretty rude to the Libyan President a liar!

  • Chester Simms

    Does any one know if this Nakula (sp?) guy has been released? What a travesty this is!

  • Godisright

    Much too confusing for the uneducated “give me” crowd. They will never rise to the level of – I’ve had enough of this crap. As long as Osbama, the sympathizer, is in the White House they will skew the media away from their affected areas with something utterly stupid.

  • Freedomswatch

    It’s sad that Michelle Bachmann is not running for re-election. I appreciate that she fights for the people.

  • sjmom

    Michele was excellent and the arrogance shown by Morell also showed his stupidity in believing DC rather than eyewitnesses. Then again, I don’t believe DC thought it was spontaneous either. This as Michele said was a coverup.

  • PatriotInk

    Want a REAL WOMAN for POTUS? Here she is. Every time I have listened to her, Mihele Bachmann is always well prepared and expresses details that I never here from most Conservatives…This is one citizen that is sad to see her leave. What a WOMAN!!!

  • Subie201

    Michele is one of Sarah Palin’s mama grizzlies! She ain’t afraid to speak her mind! She was the one who exposed Huma Abedin as being family member of Muslim Brotherhood! But the RINOs hated her for it, and Boehner had been making her life miserable! You know how these repubtards hate the Tea Party! But hate equals FEAR!

  • Sidney11

    Multiple intelligence pieces that it was a protest and many on the ground in Benghazi that said there was no protest…so why pick one over the other???? CIa Deputy = big f*** liar.

    • imatellau

      Had to get “mr. GM is alive and alqeada is on the run” re-elected..
      And the media is complicit in lying to the American people!

      • Rightstuff1

        An event which resulted in the deaths of 4 Americans!!! these bastards need to freaking fry!!!!

  • clubgitmo

    The lies that never stop.

    • imatellau

      The can’t.. Hep it.. Their prog Marxists! It’s all they know!

    • Rightstuff1

      I know politicians can be corrupted but under this odious administration we have corruption that has infected the FBI, CIA, IRS, DOJ, EPA and on and on and on….

      Hitler effected a takeover of his country with far less control that these traitorous scum have done with ours. This country has gone to the dogs not is going but has gone to the dogs.

  • Frances

    That lying son of gun needs his backside put in jail!

  • Pyrran

    Morell is just trying to save his posterior from the shredder.

  • timerunnersc

    These people have no shame. And at least Mrs Bachmann made him slip up with his admission that there is more than i signet.
    She really has a nice way of saying your are a liar.
    Mrs Michele Bachmann is another great Tea Party Warrior, whom we’ve had the pleasure of meeting several times, a wonderful person and a wonderful family with unwavering determination.

  • NanNJ

    Well done Mrs. Bachman, well done.

  • CobraJet428

    Morel: that is what the analyst believe that there was a video causing a spontaneous attack. Question: what made the analysts believe that when there was no spontaneous attack at all? They should be fired.

  • bjohnson55

    The incredible arrogance of these agenda driven Obama sycophants is what I get from this exchange. This ahole sits there with his nose in the air like his boss and basically gives Congress the finger after having the evidence of his manipulation of the facts presented to him on national TV. When will we have enough of this corruption? What will be the final straw? We are either a very patient people or a very stupid people.

    The LIAR Morrell: “Let me give you the facts.”

    Michele Bachmann let’s him hang himself before she told him about the behind-the-closed-door meeting with the Chief of Station. BAAM, SLAP, WHAM..Thank you, Ma’am!!! God, I am going to miss this beautiful Mama Grizzly!!!

    Clearly, there’s no major difference between liberals, democrats, socialists, marxists, and communists.
