You bring up a great point. Anyone in Foreign Service has to know after the Administration’s reaction in Benghazi (was to cover their hide first and foremost), that they (Foreign Service personel) are sacrificial lambs. What happened to the four Americans could happen to them. They are considered “bumps in the road” and EX-PEN-DA (duh!)-BLE.

Curious of the origin of the arms in the first place, and what part Nadhmi Auchi plays in this drama. I hear/read of illicit arms I think immediately of that SOB. He was involved with Obama, or at least was seen at a fundraising event according to an article I read a long time ago, and he also owns a bank he started up with funds from his illegal arms activities around the World, and he was Defense Minister for Saddam Hussein at one time. The guy is a jewel.

Last I read he was hold up behind thick walls with guards in the UK, and has one ‘H’ of a legal team keeping away the Wolves.

At about 5pm eastern time in Washington, we’re told that Obama met separately with Hillary Clinton and Leon Panetta telling each they needed to handle the attack in Benghazi.

Neither Hillary Clinton nor Panetta had the authority to order the military into action. And, conversely, neither could legally order the military to “stand down” during an attack on sovereign territory.

Obama’s whereabouts after 5 pm are undocumented. We are to believe Obama was having fish tacos and watching TV...while a terrorist attack was occurring on the 10 year anniversary of 9-11.

Given that he's called FR "a hate site," I guess we should think that he's perused our fabulous forum at least once, right?

Wasn't that sometime after "FReeper" Jerry Rivers got banned from FR in 2004 for trolling to suppress the vote for GWB?

Not to mention current Armed Forces who would question Panettas comment of
“ we don’t send forces unless we know what we are dealing with”

Some of us have saying this before the American blood was clotted in Benghazi.

Also, the CIA, was apparently running a prison that would have made Abu Grab and Gitmo look like walks in a park.

Obozo’s and Clintoon’s rich liberal donors, who believe that Abu Grab and Gitmo are the worse things to ever happen, might reconsider donating more money to their liars, Obozo/Clintoon.

I thought it was supposed to be a “prisoner swap”, trading the blind Sheik Omar RATman for Ambassador Christopher Stevens. The snatch and bag was a prearranged plan with O and HC keeping State and the Military out of the loop to insure the grab went as planned. The "plan" spun out of control when two retired Navy Seals showed up and obliterated half the raiding party. What started out as an adroit political move by Obadman via State collapsed into a Mongolian cluster F**K with the perps running around in full KYA mode. The Seals could have finished the job with a little help and some ammo.

The gun running may or may not have happened but in any event the story would have provided a cover for the attack on the embassy and the kidnapping of Stevens. With the Ambassador in terrorist hands, the release of RATman would have been a "fait accompli", and O would have made his bones with the Muslim Brotherhood (yet again!), the silent transfer of some "technical assets" would have been icing on the cake. A win/win either way.

Regards,
GtG

If that is the case why lie about it..Obama has been saying for months he wants to arm the Syrian rebels..and what would arming the rebels have anything to do with Stevens and the other 3 brave Americans being killed..my thought from the beginning was that either this was a planned hit on Stevens so they can do a swap for the Blind Sheikh or it had to do with smuggling weapons from Turkey to Syria, like Fast and Furious but Middle Eastern style

” I think the point folks may be missing here, is that Whorealdo is saying this to give cover. “There was a reason for the cover-up.” Hence, no problem... So the bastard may be up to speed on this point, but he’s still lost in the tulies when it comes to the overall evil perpetrated by this administration and it’s flying monkeys in the killings of our staff in Benghazi.”

Good thinking, D1.

You, IMO, are correct. Jerry is simply trying to make this into another Iran-Contra, thus absolving Obama of any treasonous motives.

In addition to arming the Cartles in Emxico, Obama ran guns through an Al Qeda area.

He must be arrested at once. He is Al Qeda

IMO, no mention in the hearings, because the truth is more sinister than gun-running, which is easily interpreted as a simple judgment call.

The truth may be known, but to bring it out in a single grand dish would be too hard for the public to take in. The public does not want to believe their leaders are capable of heinous crimes.

I do so believe, and don’t like the water torture approach, but it’s the only way to give people time to digest the entire meal. Or could be I’m just FOS.

Makes me wonder how many National Security Letters that JimRob has received, and the info turned over to the IRS.

And lest you think Jim wouldn’t do that, he would have no choice. And on top of that, he is prohibited from telling you that he even received the request.

Don-o, I used to think the way you do on this.

My problem is guys like McCain, who’ll toss you a bone once in a while, simply to make his treachery that much easier to accept later on.

The rational thinker will say to himself, yeah I know it’s hard to believe this, but remember McCain is pretty middle of the road. Why just the other day he said “fill in the blank”, so I think the guy is trustworthy.

Well..., no he isn’t. And that’s the problem with guys like him when they tell ‘some’ truth.
