Exclusive: Hillary's Benghazi 'Scapegoat' Speaks Out
The Daily Beast ^ | May 20, 2013 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 05/20/2013 9:07:05 PM PDT by Xcoastie

Maxwell, who served as deputy assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs from August 2011 until his removal last December, following tours in Iraq and Syria, spoke publicly for the first time in an exclusive interview with The Daily Beast.

“The overall goal is to restore my honor,” said Maxwell, who has now filed grievances regarding his treatment with the State Department’s human resources bureau and the American Foreign Service Association, which represents the interests of foreign-service officers. The other three officials placed on leave were in the diplomatic security bureau, leaving Maxwell as the only official in the bureau of Near Eastern Affairs (NEA), which had responsibility for Libya, to lose his job.

“I had no involvement to any degree with decisions on security and the funding of security at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi,” he said.

This Administration continues to throw underlings under the bus. Some are not as fortunate as IRS' Miller who Obama "fired" with full retirement benefits on the pre-scheduled June 2nd retirement date. Some like Gregory Hicks who became Acting Ambassador in Libya are celebrated until they talk to Congress without Cheryl Mills' permission and are quickly demoted in shame. Patterns define this Administration over and over.

Looks like Maxwell got the ‘Gregory Hicks’ treatment. Is Maxwell a heterosexual white male too?

I hope Hitlery has nightmares of SEALS wearing their skull masks knocking down her door at 2:00 am every night for the rest of her vile life.

Male, coloured, close to retirement - probably expected to go quietly. But as was discussed on previous thread the man does not like that, and he is a poet (!!).

He published a very scathing poem on his blog - but now the blog is marked private and can only be accessed by special invitation. However, the poem "Invitation" was posted in its entirety on the blog Diplopundit. Here are the last two verses:

And the ones being lynched?
Who cares? They are pawns in a game.
Our game. All suckers, all fools,
all knaves who volunteered to serve -
Us. And the truth? The truth?
What difference at this point does it make?

In the event of inclement weather,
or the Queen’s incapacitation,
her Henchmen will carry out this lynching -
as ordered, as planned.

PS: The comments on Mr Maxwell's site were extremely supportive, but I can guess as the poem started to get known the libtards started to converge....

This poem is describing Hillary. I mentioned Borderline Personality Disorder in previous comments. If you want to know more about what I’m talking about here’s a link: http://psychcentral.com/lib/2007/symptoms-of-borderline-personality-disorder/

Of course it is describing her, “the Queen”. Don’t think Mr Maxwell felt she was a good boss....

Solidifying the takeover core by sluffing off the unfaithful.

In my mind she has never resembled a human being. She’s wicked inside and out.

“I had no involvement to any degree with decisions on security and the funding of security at our diplomatic mission in Benghazi,” he said.

Apparently, NO ONE in the U.S. GOVERNMENT had any involvements with those issues either.

Inclement weather happened to Oklahoma and Texas.
He means inclement weather to her. It all goes on. Every one of these rats were more concerned about changing the Nation and protecting themselves than actually PROTECTING any of us. That is the point.

Sometimes it is better to be a scapegoat who can talk back than a horse’s ass (or for Democrats, a jackass’s ass, who can do nothing but bray.

Hillary is evil, a cold, cunning power-hungry bitch with a marxist undercoating.

My daughter has compared Hillary's changing appearance to that of the Dorian Gray picture. Says every line, every wrinkle is a reflection of the evil in her heart.

Your daughter is right. Hitlery is as wicked as any woman who ever lived, IMO.

“it called out Maxwell for the specific infraction of not reading his daily classified briefings”

So Maxwell gets the can for following the lead of Obimbo?

This is why Obama has not fired many people: THEY MIGHT TALK!

This is why he couldn't fire HRC or Holder or a host of others.

Criminal organization cannot simply fire someone. Ex-employees might decide to get even & “drop a dime”. Maxwell is now dropping a dime. There will be others.

Incessant double standards. Valarie Plame was a “valiant whistle blower” but Hicks is called what by these smarmy jerks?

He is a black male, which is even better.
