Posted on 04/30/2013 12:02:25 PM PDT by Nachum
WASHINGTON House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) made the following statement in response to President Barack Obamas assertion that hes not familiar with Benghazi whistleblowers being blocked from telling their stories:
A lawyer for Benghazi whistleblowers has publicly stated that the State Department is blocking her clients ability to talk freely with counsel. Over the past two weeks, I have sent four letters requesting that this Administration make information available about how lawyers who already have security clearances and are representing Benghazi whistleblowers can be cleared to fully hear their clients stories. I have yet to receive any response from the Obama Administration.
Even if the President really doesnt know anything about someone wanting to come forward, his position should be that whistleblowers deserve protection and that anyone who has different information about Benghazi is free to come forward to Congress. The Presidents unwillingness to commit himself to protecting whistleblowers only aids those in his Administration who are intimidating them.
Issas four letters requesting that the Administration make information available for lawyers representing Benghazi whistleblowers:

The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Oh, Obama was thinking o something else......
We’re in the midst of the aftermath cover-up of the aftermath cover-up of the cover-up.
He is either the biggest most incompetent idiot or the biggest liar in this country. He cannot have it both ways. Or can he????
“Paging Howard Dean..........Paging Howard Dean.......”
So you will defund the SD until you get cooperation right?
Why yhe Fxxx not?
Note the dozens of Republicans in the House & Senate standing proud next to Issa......
The Professor was a piece of work indeed. We need more like her.
Well, like we need more DEmoNcrats...but I repeat myself ;)
OK, this is ridiculous. Third wrong thread post in 2 days. G’night all ;)
At last the battle is joined!
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Nobody can believe that it is incompetence. It is corruption.
I couldn't believe what I was hearing. He was lying, absolutely lying. He has to know about that as it's everywhere on news channels and on the internet. Certainly he's been informed of that. I'm sure he's the one who said don't give them anything and threaten their jobs, do anything to stop them from testifying. He is just dirt.
Only the POTUS had the authority to act!
0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

There are three scandals here...
Denial of requests for security were a dereliction of duty. The lies and misdirection about the "video" after the attack were fraud and malfeasance under the color of authority. The inaction during the attack was something more than that.
The failure to act during the attack is the direct equivalent of desertion IMO.
ONE man had the authority to act that night.
ONE man deserted his post!
0bama abandoned his post. 0bama Is A Deserter!
Please, let this be the final nail in the coffin! Hopefully, Issa or someone else can figure out how to make the administration respond to all the subpoenas. If not, hopefully, someone will figure out a way to work around them and get the job done!
Zero’s duplicitous rhetoric is catching up with him, finally.
Political cartoon in my newspaper this morning shows him in front of a podium with GUN CONTROL written on it, that superior, smarmy expression on his face, and his statement below, “If there’s a step we can take to save even one child, we should take that step.”
Next panel, same drawing but the words PLANNED PARENTHOOD. His comment, “Never mind.”
He and his administration have a lot of those, “I wasn’t aware/What does it matter/Never mind” moments.
What is this about 3rd wrong thread??
I think Norm is saying he had posted on the wrong thread 3 times tonight and is ready for bed. Reference his post #11 - has no connection to this thread.
And, what's going on with the YouTube guy?
Still in lock-up?
Thanks for your quick response. Also, there are none of the usual lists of posts of interest on the right side of my screen either at the Forum page or the Ping page. Also only a few pings at a time are shown. Is there something wrong with FR, or is it my old computer?
Well of course he is lying.
His lips are moving.
Does Mr. Issa really expect Obama to allow Government employees to keep their jobs if they squeal on “The One”?
If they squeal on Obama they will not have 2 Seals die to save them. They will be dead.
Si, se puede! Si, se puede!
Maybe she should have let Obama read it - would maybe keep him from being so duplicitous and shady, which we know he is.
But anyway, to pin even one of his lies would be a good day.
Lies examined every single day to follow.
Yup. I have had 2 windows open and hit reply on the wrong one. Long ‘night’. Sorry about that all
This is what I keep repeating about Zer0:
“He has to be evil because NOBODY can be that stupid. Even a complete dumba$$ gets something right every now and then just by accident.”
You got me, Watson, I broke the Internet.
That's twice now...
I know the feeling, but are you also missing all the information that is normally on the right side, or is it just me?
Just Tweeted earlier by CBS’ Sharyl Atkisson-
State Dept. re: whereabouts of Benghazi survivors: “..most of them are back on duty and doing functions at various places around the world.”
>> “Is there something wrong with FR, or is it my old computer?” <<
Everything is truncated today.
Problem with the system:
Hope you are watching Lou Dobbs. If not, you MUST watch his repeat show later — all your hard work is coming to fruitio. Mcnerney said this is bigger than Watergate.
Of COURSE it’s bigger than Watergate: nobody died in Watergate.
And nobody was trafficking military weapons in Watergate.
And nobody was thrown in prison as a distraction in Watergate.
Well, another little tidbit from the Dobbs show was how Petraeus was railroaded out of CIA but if asked to come before Issa hearing will tell the truth. Lots of stuff in the show — I should have taken notes but you never know when it starts out what will come out. Please, everyone — watch Lou Dobbs Tuesday night on the 2nd round if you missed it earlier.
Four dead Americans ... what difference does it make?
Well go scritch that Kitty until the authorities can fix it.;-)
Hope all is well with you and Mr HB and Mr Wiggles?
Yep. I bet 0jugears was stunned when he found out that anyone survived.
Corruption? I’ll raise you treason and enemies, domestic!
