So in other words the media will ramp up their coverage of the Zimmerman/Trayvon case even more.

They’re in a pickle. Only the black agitators “care” about Trayvon. But if they don’t talk about Trayvon they’re going to have to talk about Detroit.

Time for some more Trayvon talk from the president. Can’t have this getting out on the news along with the IRS, NSA and Fast and Furious problems.

No need for the media to harp on the Martin case... Hannity is doing just fine and taking care of that. If I’ve heard him say “ground and pound mma style” once it has been 10,000 times.

The Republican chairmen of several congressional committees have run a number of highly aggressive investigations into the events of Sept. 11 last year, when dozens of heavily armed extremists terrorists overran the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, setting the building ablaze and killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and State Department officer Sean Smith.

Pardon me for correcting the Washington Times.

MSM and RATS will be hoping for some serious Trayvoning going on this weekend.

Lemme guess... it has taken this much time for the Pentagon to get the story “straight” and pay off those that needed to be.

If Col. Bristol tells the whole truth, this could be interesting.

But I doubt we will hear what is actually said.

guess they've had enough months to convince him to carry water for them - if he wants to see one dime of his earned retirement money - if he wants his family to remain safe? If HE wants continued access to oxygen,etc

This likely explains Obama’s ‘surprise’ “I could have been Trayvon” presser.

Make noise for diversion.

Exactly right. The administration desperately needs, and will get, a smokescreen from their allies in the media.

There’s been plenty of time to dig up dirt. Wouldn’t want to embarass the family, would you? It would be a shame if such a distinguished career was to be marred by some unfortunately publicized incidents. /sarc

...after all the lies in the narrative are corroborated with the WH, first.

The clock has been 'run out' on this scandal, just like the rest of them.

I don’t doubt it.

He has so mush to divert our attention from, he’ll milk this for as long as he can.

I suspect next we’ll be hearing about how his daughter could have been Trayvon’s girlfriend.

And more Trayvon talk from most of the conservative AM radio talk show hosts. And more Trayvon talk from most of the Fox News contributors and commentators. And, especially, at least a dozen more Trayvon threads on FreeRepublic by midnight today. Bread and circuses for the masses.

This is the guy that, until recently, the Pentagon claimed to have no idea where he was and couldn’t find. Color me cynical, but I doubt very seriously that their sudden ability to find him means that he has anything of significance to say.

Thanks for the post smoothsailing. Hopefully with each side of Congress the hearings will end up in the CSPAN archives.

Should be a rather interesting hearing at least on the HR side of the house. No response required. We understand.

Where’s Obama speaking out on Benghazi? He has time to speak out on the Zimmerman trial. 4 Americans have died and there’s been no justice at all. Perhaps its time for mass rallies on behalf of these 4 Americans.
