I don’t really know much about Issa, but I keep reading his name in connection with this investigation. It sounds to me like he is staying on it, not distracted by the next shiny object in DC. I like that. It looks like he is one of the few officials who is actually working hard at his job, staying focused, and finishing what he started.

Kudos, Rep. Issa!

No one is asking what the Joint Chiefs were doing as these men were being murdered. Wouldn’t we all like to know????

“I am terribly cynical and should not say things about a man I do not know and whose character is above reproach as evidenced by the position he served in.”

Cynical, Nah! Mullen, Dempsey, the list of perfumed princes is lengthy. When this is over, we need to clean house in the Flag Officers corps in all our services. We have some real Quislings in there right now!

“Pickering looked to me to be very defensive and nervous, while Issa seemed confident and very much in control . . .”

Thanks for that description. I had read something similar earlier today, but this confirms it for me.

I live in a country where MTP and the other Sunday talk programs are not broadcast, so when it is important I rely on freepers’ descriptions of what was said, or youtube excerpts.

Benghazi needs to be pursued.

The IRS leak is intentional to distract from Benghazi.

What a joke. This whole Benghazi fiasco is just one more in a long list of side shows meant to stir up our emotions and keep our eyes off the real issues at hand. Obomba, his administration and their confederates have destroyed the US Constitution's command over our laws and are working speedily to remove any freedoms said Constitution guaranteed.
Does anyone really think anything will come of this Benghazi-gate affair?

Please.

So far the whistle-blowers all come from State Dept, we need people in CIA or Military intelligence to really put the dirty out.

And not just on Hillary.

My wife who barely follows this stuff and hates that I do even said - “I saw where they said it would take 20 hours to get forces there. I do not know a lot of how things work in the military but that sounded completely ridiculous.”

When average housewives can figure that a whitewash is underway we have reached a new low.

“20 hours”

Yet Woods and Doherty were actively painting targets with an LLDS. That LLDS had to be synched with air-borne munitions that were overhead or closing in damn fast.

But where never fired....

I never thought I’d remotely come to this conclusion, but right now, a President Joe Biden could scarcely be worse that the obfuscater-in-chief and his minions currently polluting the Executive Branch of this country.

Reminds me of college days when I referred to a snooty fraternity as “frat”. One of their pledges sneered at me and asked if I’d refer to this country as a (rhymes with punt). This was in 1973, and I blew him away by saying “Well, the way this president is screwing us, I’d have to think about it!”

40 years later, and I fear that my comeback line is once again appropriate.

I was in college from ‘69 to ‘75. I remember thinking at the time that Nixon resigned that I would have preferred Agnew to Ford!

As for Biden, he’s a dunce, but at least he’s an American dunce. I don’t know what Obama is, beyond evil.

Don’t flame. I just hit yhe wrong number on my remote and I got CNN. Wolf was interviewing Thomas Pickering. This guy is obviously not an impartial investigator. He was selected to put a lid on this and blame it on underlings. Issa and the guys should have a field day with him and Mullen.

FYI, Pickering stated on one of the Sunday shows that he and Mullin had made the determination that it would have taken more than seven hours to get military aid to help Stevens.

You do understand that is irrelevant, don't you?

Issa needs to depose Hillery Clinton.She needs to be recalled to testify about certain facts. The RINOS of the GOP gave here a kid glove pass. This was a disservice to the nation which MUST be remedied.

These lefty fascists need to be stopped, and that can only be done by having Hillery answer some very key questions.
