One of the top security officials on the ground during the Benghazi attack broke his silence on last night’s “60 Minutes,” saying the U.S. government knew that an attack was imminent and didn’t do anything about it.

Rep. Michael McCaul (R-TX) sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry demanding answers about why the warnings were ignored. He joined Fox and Friends this morning and called the attack “foreseeable.”

Lie after lie after lie after lie.

Amazing what you can get away with when you know the media will protect you.

And today I heard a news report that one media is working on a story that people in the chain of command were RELIEVED OF DUTY because they would not stand down and let the attack take place

Obama FIRED people who wanted to rescue our guys, as it was happening!!!!!!!

The witness has a book out and that will be held against him IMO.
Still it is a national tragedy and we don’t need to elect Hillary and the next national tragedy.

Didn’t the witness last night say that the terrorists were going to “kill some Americans”? And that is what Hillary said in her little “what difference does it make” tantrum.

Brennan wanted fine control over the MANPADS op to Syria and that came to require sometimes getting JSOC to wax some of The Uncooperatives among the local factions.

And finally they got SUPER PISSED about it and fought back.

And a proper rescue would have beckoned a MUCH higher level of media interest and so that night VJ decided to pull the whole plug and tie it off.

So they just abandoned them.

Meanwhile, Issa has encouraged the criminals to continue
from Fast&Furious onward.

BOTH parties have acted against the Constitution
and the American people.

Issa and Clinton and Obama and Petraeus have
screwed America over and over.

It was right before a critical reelection bid and they also feared a possible Blackhawk Down scenario.

It is maybe possible that the actions of the two brave SEALS led attackers to The Annex or at least primed their suspicion.

Your reference to VJ having pulled the plug as POTUS had gone missing for 7 long hours...is interesting. Ms. Jarrett, refered to in another article as a vacuous cipher...may in fact might not be so vacuous after all as the de facto POTUS....

Why send a letter and ask John Kerry what happened. Hillary was in charge, Ask her. And ask her under oath this time.

It’s high time she was asked under oath. Where is our boy Issa. Where is the Special Prosecutor? What was Obama doing while people were dying? Why was a lie produced about a Video and used the next day? Why didn’t the Media get onto this Scam?

So many questions, and no one with the balls to ask them. Instead we get McCain praising Hillary and Soros funding a campaign she hasn’t started yet. Somebody is crazy and it aint me.

We don't need grandstanding representatives. Is this guy so frickin' dumb that he wants to talk to .... Kerry?

Besides, Benghazi is over. We're on Obamacare software screw-ups now.

Strikes me that this McCaul is just another constituent service guy ... Congressional Consumer Help Bureau ... not a leader of the Republic that needs to be restored. Not loud enough, Dude.

Because they were hoping everyone would forget that the Democrats overthrew the government of Libya so they could steal money.

Yep. And you have to pay media people to look away. That makes the media accomplices to everything the Democrats have done.

Roger that, tho' I still think Obama and Pres. Morsi and the Egyptian MB were in it up to their eyebrows, and the Benghazi attack was really a kidnap-and-exchange caper set up to allow Obama to do a limp-wrist on holding the Blind Sheikh, whom the MB droolers want turned loose to them in the worst way.

Obama wants to give up the Sheikh, but he insisted the MB twist his arm a bit, like "Haircut" in The French Connection, so he could make it look good.

While the ambassador died, Obama was on the phone to Morsi, five to one.

So it's a coincidence that this happened about a month after Morsi asked Barky for the Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman, and Barky had to tell him "no"?

And there was the apology tape Hillary and Barack made.

I always assumed Barry was having alone time with Reggie. I think that’s why Reggie was all of a sudden gone from the white hut in less than 2 months after Benghazi attack.

Lemmings being led over a cliff. I will never understand the stupidity of anyone who cannot see though these two lying sacks of Dung.
