"What did he do and who did he contact?"

And, did he make plenty of copies, deposit them in multiple locations for safekeeping, and make sure his life insurance premiums are current?

What came of the fast and furious mess? Nothing. For all the posturing and testimony not a thing came of it.

It's in federal district court.

Holder's refusal to honor the House subpoena and the President's curious claim of Executive Privilege have been challenged in court.

The court will decide in favor of the House -- there is no precedent for them doing otherwise.

Then, we'll find out what the administration's next stalling technique is...

“Seems Gen Ham was purportedly initially arrested for refusing to stand down. Also another Gen in Italy was sendin assistance and was stopped and subsequently transferred...McDill?”

...and where the hell is Gen. Ham and that other General? If they were patriotic enough to defy the stand down orders, and that caused them to be relieved of command because of it, you would think they would stand up for themselves and tell their story. Are they more worried about their pensions, than to gain retribution for the lives of their fellow citizens who were left to die in Benghazi? Are there no patriots left in this Country? Generals, you have an opportunity to change history! Please step up and do the right thing for the good of our Country! This may be the last chance we have to reel in this tyrant in the White House before he finishes the USA off for good!!

It must be bad: PBS led with the sexual assault ‘problem’ in the military. They can’t even talk about Benghazi.

Meanwhile they are having a Watergate retrospective and have invited viewers to send in their memories of that time! Back in the day when investigative reporting meant destroying the right kind of politician.

From your lips to God’s ear.

Psalm 109:8 seems the only thing one can pray over this abomination.

Great passage of scripture! Actually a good portion of this chapter seems to be a solid indictment against 0bama, and the curse against our land as a result of America voting to put this islamic, anti-American socialist into the presidential office.

I think General Ham needs to zip his pants up in the front, rather then the side or behind, and have the courage to speak up and declare specifically who it was that told him to stand down. I don't understand how these cowardly bastards are willing to lie down in front of 0dumb0 and cover for this RAT bastard commie pig-in-chief.

And I believe that General Ham should have acted on principle & in defense of the United States and should have defied the order to stand down, and then proceed to launch the military response or air cover.

1. Yes
2. No, sadly there are not.

Pensions, prestige, getting into all the right cocktail parties, as well as getting all the right positions AFTER retirement also ...don’t forget about THAT.

Right about that! He snapped his fingers and a team got engaged on Benghazi, Day 2.

Is there any hope of getting to Obama without hanging Hillary?

That was terrific. Thank you very much for looking that up. I missed that thread and that Limbaugh show somehow and have not heard that before. It somewhat contradicts what I have understood up until now that only the POTUS could authorize a CBA but is still not a lot different. It is hard to imagine anyone else deciding to leave them all hanging.

You betcha he was...he was not available during the hours in question because he was either out smokin’ dope, lovin’ Reggie/whoever, or yet the one I heard was that he and Valerie Jarrett and others had a meeting and were trying to figure out a story they could tell the press and the world when Benghazi exploded in their faces. The story was that obozo was going to have a “October Surprise” for the voters just before the Elections in November, 2012. The plan was for Ambassador Stevens to be “kidnapped” by obozo’s Muslim Brotherhood allies, and held for “ransom.” obozo was suppose to negotiate the “release” of Stevens, give his Muslim Brotherhood buddies the trade-off they wanted (the blind sheik was suppose to be exchanged for Stevens), and obozo figured he would become a hero to the American public, and a shoo-in at the 2012 elections. And then the Benghazi plan blew up in his face, and now he was scrambling to save face with the public and come up with some plausible story to tell the press. It was a pure political move on obozo’s part, and in the end men died, men who pleaded for help, men who were ignored by the limp-wristed pResident, all for political gain. obozo’s sorry azz should be dragged out of the White House and be “displayed” for all to see as a socialist/communist/marrxist “pResident” who consorts with an enemy of the United States (Muslim Brotherhood), who is a conniving, self-serving pathological liar and should be impeached, just to name a few reasons. obozo, Clinton and the rest of his cabal have blood on their hands and they must be punished for the political move that blew up in their faces and killed soldiers in the process. This story must never die, and these traitors must be punished.

Please see my post #125. This story was first broken by a retired Naval Admiral Lewis, I believe, can't positively remember his name. This story was all over the internet..haven't checked it lately to see if it's been scrubbed. No one picked up on this story..the leftist media totally ignored it, and now it's coming out as probably the truth of what really happened. oboma must be taken down and hard, along with his leftist cabal. He is responsible for the deaths of brave men...but Mr Chicken-Sh*t undoubtedly knows nothing about honor, bravery, love of country (unless it's a muslim country), or simply how to tell the truth. obozo is a socialist/communist/marxist, a pathological liar and a DANGER to this country, to you and to me. obozo MUST be punished, and we should all forward this info to everyone we know..the facts must be made known to everyone, and not just the low-information people in this country. And We the People must not allow this story to just fade away...obozo and his cabal have blood on their hands and they MUST be punished.

I would guess that the Admiral commanding the Stennis Battle Group and the Commander of AFRICOM were relieved of command (although that was polished up later) because they were going to send people in (with or without CBA) anyway.

Shortly afterwards, Petraeus is popped for having a little on the side (commonplace DC practice), and the personnel shuffle began--all CYA for Duh-1--scatter the people in the know, and if they won't play ball, well, DC is a dangerous and crime-ridden town, and the Beltway is a dangerous drive...

I want General Ham to be required to testify under oath, and I believe what happened was this:

(1) General Ham called the Office of the President and said he was ready to launch the military rescue operation.

(2) Valerie Jarrett took his call and told him to stand down.

(3) General Ham said he didn’t take orders from her.

(4) She called General Ham’s deputy and told him to relieve General Ham and stand down the operation.

I hear (or read) what you're saying.... but then General Ham needs to go public with this and even ANGRILY public, instead of remaining silent. These senior military officers are in jobs that they are required to make tough decisions, irregardless of career. And General Ham should call for an all-out public revelation from other senior officers or even mid-level officers and to STOP protecting or covering for the RAT bastard commie-muzlim pig 0bama!

I also wish that General Ham would have arrested his deputy officer, rather then submitting to him/her, if that is what had happened.
