Skip to comments.Top Defense Chiefs to Testify on U.S. Consulate Attack in Libya
Posted on 02/07/2013 8:11:04 AM PST by Wisconsinlady
Panetta being questioned by Congress regarding Benghzi.
It is outrageous that the ~30 witnesses are sequestered
to keep the MANPAD transfers to al Qaeda secret
from the American public.
He can join Hillary, pounding the table and shouts
What Difference ..... Does It Make??!!???!!
Where are their family and friends? why aren’t they demanding to know where the survivors are? I would be camped out on the steps of the capitol every day and calling every TV and radio station I could get a hold of.
Who is that Officer behind Gen. Dempsy with that ungodly mop of hair?
This is all playing out the farce.
Not one thing will ever be said or done to those responsible for it. Nothing will be said of Obama refusal to aid these people.
If not for the 2 Seals 30 people would be dead, and they will not speak up for those who saved their lives.
I am wondering if the lives of these people saved, who will not speak out , by those seals was worth the lives of two brave men.
Who is that Officer behind Gen. Dempsy with that ungodly mop of hair?
It’s a “dude-ette”.
It seems nothing was worth the death of those two brave seals. They died in vain. Shame on ANYONE whether they are high up or low, who won’t stand up and tell the truth as to why this administration allowed these men to die seven hours after this fiasco began.
Amen. And you’d think one of them would have the courage to break silence.
Yep, and I bet he is lying with every word.
All they are allowing him to do is talk about the “terrible readiness crisis” we would have if sequestration goes into effect. They didn’t have a terrible readiness crisis in Benghazi? I guess the money didn’t help then! They were spending the money to keep the embassies in Europe “lookin’ purty”
Forget about the dude-ette.
How can the Joint Chief sit there (ever since 9/11/2012) and LIED, with our people dying/dead?
Chambliss asked if this was an “intelligence failure” and Dempsey said he thinks of it more as an “intelligence gap”. Tell that to the dead ambassador and others who died there that day.
Stop the speeches & thank you’s. They’ve had months to prepare & coordinate their questions. What a waste.
we will get the real news from al gores new news network.
Money for nothing, and minor chicks for free.
What if anything do we know of these survivors. How many are American citizens??? How many are state department employees??? Who cut out their tongues and took their typing skills away???
Kabuki Theater, nothing more.
Thanks for posting this thread.
FYI all: Brennan hearing 2:30 pm
My blood pressure is so high now, I don’t know if I will be able to take the Brennan hearing next! Yikes!
she is asking about cyber-warriors, national guard, etc.
Panetta will be GONE, you idiot! This is our last chance to nail the president of the U.S. as a liar in chief and you are playing games.
Asking them now what they would advise for next administration, blah, blah, blah.
“Money for nothing, and minor chicks for free.”
Yes. We truly are in “dire straits”.
WE DIDN’T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO DO OUR JOB!!!
And why aren’t the families of these “missing” survivors talking?
My bet is that they’ve been threatened.
“Stop the speeches & thank yous.”
Agreed. I am so sick of hearing what wonderful service Panetta gave to our country, blah, blah, blah.
Yep. I can identify.
I just saw your thread at 11:45am and started DVRing with Ayotte’s questions, so I don’t know what I missed. I will look for a C-SPAN repeat tonight.
Ayotte asked Panetta a question in relation to a timeline. Panetta ignored any specifics about time, and Ayotte never redirected him to answer with specifics about the timeline.
And she is one of the good ones who has been focused on Benghazi.
First one to ask any tough questions is Grahamnesty. Now they are blaming the State Dept (because Hillary is off the hook now)
Graham making both Dempsey and Panetta squirm.
Comes out that NO assets were deployed before the attack concluded , for the whole seven hours.
Graham has more questions in round two.
Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire up and kissing ass, as all Dems do.
wanna be stompin rocks flat pissed ?
read the openin statement by pimp Panetta
My blood pressure is so high now, I dont know if I will be able to take the Brennan hearing next! Yikes!
I was only listening at the time, didn’t see who was responding to a question, but I heard a peculiar hesitation before the phrase “armed groups” with regard to the conflict in Mali.
So, that means they’re muslims, doesn’t it?
Mike Lee of Utah now following up on Graham’s questions.
Benghazigate is part of the script “detonation of Obomber and the proclamation of Hillary Clinton as the real 44th president”.
Benghazigate reversed scripts
Noticed during McCain’s questioning that General Dempsey got so nervous that he pulled a Captain Queeg and rolled up a piece of paper and started playing with it. He must have forgotten to bring marbles with him.
That was not a US Consulate. Consulates and Embassies must, by international law, openly fly their national flag and their existence made public. What was attacked in Benghazi was a secret CIA base being used to funnel captured Libyan arms to Al Qaeda death squads in Syria. The Government and Corporate Media calling that base a consulate is a psyop like constantly referring to the Branch Davidian Church in Waco as a "compound" and their storm shelter as a "bunker".
Lee did not go in for the kill.
Dempsey got away with saying that as soon as the attack started, forces “were put in motion”.
He told Graham NO forces were deployed, not one person or plane moved until the attack was over.
Kaine of VA up now. Talking about what a shame Panetta was forced to not deploy a carrier group due to budget cuts.
Ahhh, but the strawberries, THAT’S where he had them.
No time. I guess that is the reason they fired a General and an Admiral for getting ready to send help.
Something doesn’t jibe here.
Question is.....why in the HELL get involved in Libya in the first place???? And if so, why wasn’t there proper backup considering the region is so volatile. You don’t set up an embassy (compound) without proper backup within reach.
Ted Cruz ROCKS.
He is directing the witnesses BACK to
the benghazi attack up to the murder of the Seals.
IF ONLY FREEPERS could see the hands in front of
the mouths of Panetta and Demsey which reveals
they are clowns.
The Clowns are holding back and when they
“answer” they cannot even LOOK at Ted Cruz.

Sen. Graham: Are you surprised the president never called to say how it's going? Panetta doesn't answer directly. Retweeted by Michelle Malkin
Sen. Graham: Was any DOD asset ever deployed to help these people before the attack was over? Pannetta: After hemming and hawing...."No.'
Both clowns admit they had NO conversations with Clinton during the attacks.
how the hell is that even possible?
Now Kay Hagan of now stroking the dynamic duo.
Kay Hagan (D) is up.
The questions are comfortable for the clowns,
and they can look at her straight in the eye.
The body language reveals there is and has been
a coverup ... of possible treason.
I assume that all visas and other consular matters were being handled by the Rmbasy in Tripoli.
The above is kook garbage. The Admiral's strike group was in the Pacific at the time of the Benghazi attack, and utterly incapable of doing jack squat about Benghazi.
Holy Krap just heard we have to have Lawyers determine if we can attack a group of terrorists! Or Not!
Dempsey plays Mickey-the-Dunce
and purported he knew NOTHING.
but Sen. Roger Wicker (R) artfully skewers
the Clown and gets him to finally admit
that he knew.
Yes. He knew about the attacks on the
Red Cross, and on the UK, and then
finally on the US. But did nothing.
Wicker of MS wonders about the intelligence gap, in response to Chambliss’s questions. reviews all of the various intelligence leading up to 9/11/12.
Asks” is there something else you needed to know to provide proper security?”
Dempsey says what he knew was what was in Gen. Ham’s weekly reports, which showed a deteriorating security situation.
Wicker asks did you know about the attack on the British.
Dempsey agains says Ham was very good about reporting the deteriorating security situation.
Says threat streams in Libya similar to other threats happening at the same time.
Says he does not put military resources in to a country unless requested by host country.
folks, this is all bullsh@t. Stevie Wonder could have foreseen a problem and prepared accordingly. These jokers are going to skate, unless someone nails them with a moment by moment admission of what happened and who decided what to do or what not to do.
