So many possible intrigues...you know we won’t succeed in not checking on politics and news this weekend....lol.

I am going to spend time praying for our country though. These are the most perilous times that I can recall in my lifetime for sure.

RE: "Why the 180 today out of the WH? From stonewalling to talking?"

Specifically my comments tried to bring out the fact of why the Alphabets are asking tough questions. Not where the goon behind the podium was talking. He talked for the hour with nothing but bullshit to protect his employer and associates, and tried over and over again to place the blame on the Republicans for being unfair.

Just in case you did not understand my original comment correctly. Just wanted to offer that.

Yup.

There are a number of dimensions to this problem that might criminally ensnare anyone else: gross negligence, dereliction of duty, obstruction of justice, collusion, perjury, false witness, manslaughter...

I’m not even slightly nervous about Hitlery.

IMHO she’s such a damaged, hideous old bag of a she devil that there is no way on earth she could win an eleciton. I doubt she’d have the physical stamina or the abilibyt to functon without being drunk in public anyway. And Benghazi is going to cover her with blood she won’t be able to wash off. Her and 0bastard both. She’ll be like Lady Macbeth.

Glad I am not the only one thinking that about Hillary. I think if the truth ever comes out about Benghazi,arming AQ terrorists in Syria, getting this country so close to a WW3 or in one before Obama is done, that anyone in this administration will be radioactive for future political endeavors.

Who were the 14 reporters briefed off the record and behind closed doors? Why isn’t this discussed more...it is obvious control of the press. And worse, by going to the meeting the press accepted the control. So we need to know who they are because anything they say/write is now just confirmed Carney talking points.

There’s nothing the least bit original or unexpected about ‘Benghazi-gate’.

But Freepers are better than that, they’ve superseded the “-gate” suffix with “-ghazi” for all future references to scandal.

Sadly, there is blood on their hands.

Woods and Dohrtey were using an LLDS to paint targets - actively. You can only do that if your LLDS is set to the code that matches the overhead or on-the-way laser guided munitions. Clearly, either munitions WERE overhead or were on their way in and codes were communicated to Woods and Dohtery. But it appears these munitions were ALSO ordered to stand down at the last second.

They literally left these men to die at the last minute.

Too true. But no matter how many writers a liar tries to influence, he/they will still get caught. And the more writers, the bigger and widespread the lie.

— Then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, Jan. 23, 2013:

“I wasn’t involved in the talking points process.... As I understand it, as I’ve been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the State Department, all participated, to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available, and it was an intelligence product.”

“With all due respect,the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”—Hillary Clinton

"With new details emerging in the Benghazi-gate controversy, the White House held a background discussion with more than a dozen news organizations. Shown below is Herr Obozo pleading with his out house mediots to save his butt!"

It was a Benghazing gone wrong, that's all. Hillary herself may have once said, "it was hazing, it was an out-of-control fraternity prank, it was on the night shift."

What difference does it make if she did(n't) say it, anyway?!!

I read this (below) but still a little confused on what you are saying that ON said about CIA and the MANPADS.I only saw the missiles referenced at the beginning of the article. I’m trying to understand that better as I thinking getting to the REASONS behind the whole Benghazi coverup is the key to toppling the whole structure. (I don’t believe it was only to do with reelection.)

This IRS story seems like a gift from the Obamba regime to conservatives. Something stinks about the timing of this story, which the WH is blaming on a Bush appointee.

The White Hut recognizes the danger posed by exposing their actions/omissions re: Benghazi. Weather they are able to defuse the situation or not the Obama White House made a grievous (criminal/treasonous) err in Benghazi before, during, and after the 8/11 attack with no valid Bush scapegoat blame in sight.....

There are jokes about keeping your friends close and enemies closer. When Obama made Hillary his secretary of state, it was “keeping her close”, while giving a lot of special envoys actual authority over anything that mattered.
Obama would likely give her all the blame. The editing of talking points, the refusal to act when ambassadors called for help - say it went to the white house and ends with HER. Obama looks innocent, gives them someone very high up to blame.

ONly the President can authorize the military crossing a national border. This is known and will be known more. No one else can order a stand down or go ahead order or whatever it’s specifically called. Hitlery couldn’t do it, only the CIC has that authority. Travis McGee wrote about this a while ago. So any attempt to pin this on anyone else will fail. Of course many share guilt but the buck goes straight to 0moslem.

That’s what got me yesterday. Hearing about how the SEALS pointed the laser on what they thought was going to be the target when help arrived. Help never arrived. That is so horribly heartbreaking.

The white house and their incestuous friends/family in the MSM need to pay for what they’ve done.

The truth does need to get out.

Some ideas:

1. That the sequestration has forced the DoD to leave all our troops where they are forever and never bring them home.

2. The dumb clucks in Washington, D.C. sold North Dakota to China to pay for the national debt.

3. 0 signed an executive order recently that will make our toes curl.

Who knows...

Just off the top of my head - some of the MAJOR ObaMao corruptions, leaving out insanely controversial nominations. Behind each item is a plethora – a book’s worth of infractions:

I’m sure I’m missing other MAJOR seditious events by ObaMao. Feel free to fill in the major issues (but adding the medium and low levels problems would fill a library)

Not enough attention is getting on the MANPADS smuggling —THAT was what the (looted) warehouse was for, at The Farm. For how many years will airport shoe removal now be irrelevant?

With THOUSANDS of MANPADS now floating around the AQ blackmarket, what sane jihadi will blow himself up aboard an airliner? They won’t have to —they’ll just point and click.

BOOM.

Will we continue taking our shoes off until we get dazzlers and flare dispensers on civil aircraft?

And why won’t the media talk about how Obama refused to go 2 Dover 2c the bodies —he was STILL in campaign mode even AFTER the killings, so they were flown to Andrews in order to save time time for campaigning.

Why aren’t they discussing those 2 things?

RE: "waiting for the next shoe to drop .... nothing is by chance."

That is what FDR the super operator said many years ago.
We shall see further hearings performed by Issa's committee, and maybe soon a super committee between Senate and House formed with full subpena powers.

Now with the socialist/one world order Alphabets news conduits coming on board and challenging what the various goons within the Administration have tried to pull off being tainted, we might expect for some sticks of dynamite to go off in the weeks and months to come.

We shall view what comes to past, and then based on what form of justice might be considered to come out of it, decide if it all is just some further long drawn out circus performance meant to wow the audience.
But with no one held accountable for the deaths of those four American citizens. Time will tell.
