Depose? Sounds a lot more serious than the usual congressional hearings.
And that is appropriate. What we have here is a lot more serious than some bureaucrats rewriting talking points.
What we have here is the President of the United States REFUSING to send military help to an Ambassador and others who were under deadly terrorist attack.
And the national media has been trying to whitewash it.
Considering that pretty much every other base on the planet has aircraft ‘on alert’ or close to it pretty much 24/7/365 I don’t know how this fool thinks the couple closest to the problem miraculously didn’t...In a rather ‘hot’ spot of the world, no less...On Sept 11....
Please, Issa, proceed at a pace slightly faster than a glacier this time. I mean, Fast and Furious? That sure as heckfire does not describe your progress to date.
They need to bring in Petraeus as well.
Then Hillary’s by definition wasn’t a deposition...
Once Issa hit the EO on F&F there’s not much more he can do other than wait for the court’s decision.
20 hours - to prepare - launch - get to Benghazi
Isn’t Dempsey the little homo-General that said Fort Hood should be kept quiet and not blame that Muzzie or terrorism?
Pickering also admitted they did not record any of the testimony of any of the witnesses . How convenient .
I wouldn’t mind Issa for Speaker. But since Speaker doesn’t have to be a sitting House member I would love to see them appoint someone with spine who would blow liberal minds, someone like Colonel West or Ben Carson or Walter Williams or Thomas Sowell. Of course he need not be black, but somehow I love the idea of the regime having to deal with a bold and effective black conservative.
... it was during Mullens tenure on the Joint Chiefs that the Defense Department labeled the Fort Hood atrocity workplace violence, filing a lengthy investigative report that in Benghazi ARB fashion omitted any mention of Islam and jihad in analyzing thirteen murders carried out by a jihadist who,after consulting with al Qaedas Awlaki,screamed Allahu Akbar! as he pumped round after round into American soldiers. It was also during Mullens stint that the Defense Department purged intelligence training materials of information Obamas Brotherhood consultants found to be disparaging of Islam (i.e.,any information demonstrating that Islamic supremacist ideology is virulently anti-Western and leads,inexorably,to violence).
Pickering was on MTP and was interviewed along with Issa by DNC Dave. Pickering looked to me to be very defensive and nervous, while Issa seemed confident and very much in control of both his facts and the conversation. DNC Dave, as usual, looked like a dork.
... What a surprise that Pickering and Mullen should conduct an embarrassment of an investigation that fails to interview key witnesses (including,of course,Mrs. Clinton),and that fails to grapple with key events like the infamous Susan Rice talking points that became increasingly fraudulent precisely because Clintons State Department kept pressing for more massaging of the facts.
I would suspect that Issa already knows the answers to many of the questions he will ask, when those dirt bags lie under oath.
Mullen’s a real piece of work. This could be interesting.
“Issa for speaker!”
Oh my. That would be wonderful!
Dispose Hellery and Hussein too.
Poor 80+ year old Pickering is going to have a heart attack...
The twelve minute video that could make Jay Carney curl up in the fetal position
A good lawyer never asks a question without knowing the answer.
