That said, Petraeus did say publicly a week before the election that the Stand Down order did not come from the CIA.
CIA directors never make public statements, yet Petraeus made that one and it was right before the election.
Not sure why most didn't pay attention to it.
There lots of options for rescue of the Americans in Benghazi, but they most likely could not have saved the ambassador, since that happened in the first wave of the attack.
It is my guess that Obama ordered the Stand Down after he saw the live feed from the surveillance cameras that showed that the ambassador was not going to make it. I believe that the stand down order was given so as not to further anger the Al Qaeda group and that no consideration was given for the safety of the remaining people, located a mile away at the CIA facility, who could have been rescued.
It is my guess that the false narrative, regarding the video, was concocted early on, in the situation room by Clapper, Petraeus’ boss. I also think that it was Clapper’s idea to blame Petraeus for the bad security information.
Probably so. Some chat this morning says Republicans don’t want this protracted fight right now....too many other more important issues,.....to which I’d agree.
He holds Obama personally responsible for Benghazi.
Other than Obiden,there are few takers for that one. There just aren't that many stupid "fall on your sword types" at the higher levels of govt. Of course she has a built in excuse. She is black and can't be blamed for anything she does or says ever since that would be racist,do not pass GO do not colllect......
This is not just a “protracted chat” . There were serious lapses in judgement which resulted in the loss of lives. Then there was an elaborate cover up and a web of lies that built around a video.
Every person who was in that situation room on 9/11 needs to be brought in and and questioned openly in front of the American people until we have a true picture of the callous, incompetent, partisan decision making process that went on that led to the death of four Americans and the concoction of the cover up story.
That idiot Colin Powell doing radio and tv spots one after another for zero and the worst of all the fat basturd from NJ who single handedly threw the race making zero look bi-partisan.I can't wait til the rinos nominate either one for potus.....
Graham did a commendable job again DNC Dave but remember it will soon be “compromise time in the Senate” where we bend over and the dems get their way almost every time. I’m waiting to see just how lovely Linda and McQueeg will vote when the going gets tough. They still have to be battle tested in the Senate when the dems ask them to “compromise” ...again.
George will just now on abc wondering just how stupid was Rice? Was it a little, moderate or major league!!LOL!!
Time will tell!!She may be the perfect candidate for SEC state.Only one program necessary for the prompter.
MTPthis AM played Rice’s interview of that day and she used a “parsing” word when she spoke of the reason for Bengazzi uprising. IIRC it was the word “primarily” as related to the demonstration and should have been a tip off that she was giving us a Clintonian answer.
Well thanks Miss Hippie.....
.....husband and I don’t often fight over money but like most couples we do from time to time.
But this money and this mere $150 really got me griping.
“Why give her money when she don’t work?” husband shouted.
First, it’s way more complicated than that. Daughter is a stay-at-home Mom, husband works. Now there’ve been times when her husband didn’t work like he should but he does now.
Since he has no driver’s license, having lost it for drunk driving almost five years ago but they are hopelessly stuck in a gubmint trap. He MUST attend some kind of classes, big fine. Only he can’t afford to pay for classes, fine cause....HE COULDN’T WORK TO MAKE THE MONEY for lack of driver’s license.
He scrounged rides from family, work buddies....it was all touch and go but they never could get ahead cause, well they both smoke for one thing, eating up three hundred bucks a month, most of it going to taxes on the demonized smokers. Yeah, she and husband should stop so what? We shoot them? Nail them to crosses in highway median strips that the world should see what happens to smokers?
Also, husband needed surgery...six hernias. He got it, now healed, they moved in with husband’s friend. Finally daughter had to face reality that SHE would have to take him to work and pick him up, that they HAVE to get out of house sharing with two men, one of whom is a bit of a pervert being almost 50 with 19 year old girlfriend spending night with granddaughter seeing it all.
So daughter drove him to work, over Bay Bridge every day from Kent Island, stayed in AA county all day, picked him up. A week ago they finally saved up the money to MOVE to Brooklyn in AA county and guess what? This week they are hosting THANKGIVING for her husband’s whole family(of course she invited me but I will stay with my curmudgeon husband and am going up on Friday)! She’s never cooked a meal to host in her 35 years of life.
Point is, daughter isn’t a bad person, no she’s not. And granddaughter is light of my life. They’ve had it hard and soninlaw’s mother helped and I helped but I or she simply can’t support them.
Since June he’s been working with daughter dragging kid out of bed at 4:30 am, driving him to work, back home, kid ready for school, take kid to school, pick up kid, pick up husband. She spends entire day in a car.
After her move she needed some money to buy Kaitlyn a bed and some for food so I slipped her the $150 but I really didn’t try to hide it from husband. I honestly thought it was okay and I only did it cause I knew my big check was coming in at last.
Which is the only reason I got on this “my money” uproar.
Husband’s wrong on this and he knows it as he’s now shut up.
Cause, insert wink here, I threatened to give every dime of it to daughter and that scares the bejeesus out of him.
I think it’s great that daughter stays home with child. If I had to do it all over again I’d have stayed home with her at least for a few years. Instead I went back to work (at Western Electric, who paid me NO maternity leave) when she was 5 weeks old. She spent much of her life being ported to babysitters and while I made a bundle of money, I do so wish I’d have had the same kind of time with her that she has with her daughter.
I didn’t have to work but hey, I was a liberated wommins, making big bucks (I regularly made over $60K a year, this back in the 90’s) but missing out so much with my child.
Oh yeah, I worked from home, unpaid overtime, put in a complete payroll system for Union Memorial hospital in Baltimore, gubmint contractors....when they irritated me I walked out and had another job next day. Indeed, I was a wonderful employee but as a Mom? Not so much.
All this with husband complaining about $150 bucks so if I gave up so much of my life cause I bought into that lesbian group of Liberated Wommins....well that door swings both ways.
But do not let your heart be troubled. I managed to sneak that one thousand in cash, heh, now don’t y’all tell.
Husband is now happy I didn’t give all the money to the kid, heh.
Raddish is so touchy, feely, whiney,the prefect rat moderator!!All liberal all the time and willing to shed a tear if necessary.
In the end we will get the blame for even bringing it up since we are so racist for want in to impeach a half black bi-sexual potus when everyone knows he does not run anything,make any decisions at all, but is merely the errand boy.Just the prompter reader,speech maker, fund raiser, golf guy.
Welp you bring up my concern.
I’m not at all sure we should even be holding hearings UNLESS....well as I suspect....
...I think this whole thing was a setup to get some of those CIA prisoners....all for a big donation to the Obama re-election campaign.
Are the pubs going to go to the mat if that be the case? I think they should.
If the pubs believe it is nothing but administration failure to do a decent job, well then they should let it go. Cause, first, Obama’s got a horseshoe up his butt and America won’t hold it against him. Second, they’ll never impeach for ineptitude else he’s have been let go long ago.
I also hear, y’all check me out, pub talking points to the effect...”I think the American people will demand it?”
Heard this c ouple of times.
So how will the American’s people demand it?
Oh the Tea Party will demand it. We’ll fill the DC Mall with folks, just make the call pubbie boys.
I say the pubs should only pursue this if they suspect way more than ineptitude. I think those prisoners in the CIA prison hold the key and they should keep digging to find out if the President of the U.S. really let four Americans dies for a big campaign contribution.
I don't think much of that is applicable. It is mostly attributable to "principled conservatives" staying home. For a true look at how the election was stolen, see the county by county election map....300,000 votes
Is there any reason Rice would be the administration spokes person other than she was the only one wiling to swordfall for a shot at Sec State?
Could well be but you can be sure that the political machine led by the bent axel always has a say in things since everything that happens is political first at the Chicago machine that runs this country now.
We lost because we were trying to be Dem Light rather than a real conservative. We lost because 3 million Repubs who voted for McCain never turned out.
Pray for America
Maybe, but IMHO she’s too dumb to play Clintonian.
I don’t suppose they repete it?
I have no t.v./cable/ability to watch except where I might find wifi, but I got here and realized I forgot my earphones.
