Issa to CIA: Get your lawyers ready on Benghazi
Hot Air ^ | 4-18-2013 | Ed Morrissey

Posted on 04/18/2013 5:55:53 AM PDT by Sir Napsalot

Suddenly, it seems that the terror attack on our consulate in Benghazi last September may become relevant all over again. Yesterday afternoon, CBS’ Sharyl Attkisson reported that a number of whistleblowers had emerged to talk to the House Oversight Committee, in news that may have slipped under the radar of other emerging (and non-emerging) developments in the Boston Marathon attack story:

"CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya."

"The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department."

(snip)

Ever since the initial probe stalled a few months ago, many have wondered why the administration hasn’t made the survivors of that night available to House investigators. Some have also wondered why those survivors haven’t come forward on their own, but if they still work in intelligence agencies, they may not have been allowed to do so. These new whistleblowers may or may not be the Benghazi survivors, but clearly they’re coming from within the intel community — and Issa’s letter strongly suggest that they are pointing fingers upstairs.

No...just having trouble posting here on FR and going to different pages...constantly getting “This page cannot display”....have to hit or hold and press.

Think I’ll let Jim know since others seem to be having trouble. Though he’s likely aware.

ahh! Okay. I read that thread about the whistleblowers yesterday and posted my amazement that it came from CBS, and how the CBS newsroom must be gnashing their teeth. Sharyl Attkisson! I should have known. I cannot belive the Democrat CBS news division hasn't found a way to get rid of her yet. Maybe they're afraid of what she could do at an honest newsroom and want to keep her where they can at least keep an eye on her.

No, there’s been something funny going on with the internet all day, and it’s not just FR.

Can you imagine putting up with 4 to 8 years of hearing that old battle-axe called “madame president.”

Issa has pounced. Fast & Furious is now in the hands of the federal court, as Holder and Obama are claiming Executive Privilege against a Committee subpoena.

Until that is resolved -- and it will be resolved in the Committee's favor -- the Fast & Furious investigation cannot proceed.

Since he's come into possession of some sealed court records -- which can't be entered into evidence -- Issa probably already knows much of what he'll find in the DOJ records. But, what he finds there, he'll actually be able to use.

Issa is rigidly following due process, rather than grandstanding. Necessarily, that's a slow process. But isn't that what you'd want him to do?

Well then, if he is a real patriot, he should have come out with what he knew.

Good; however, at this rate, Obama will be long out of office before they get to the “gotcha point”. At the end of the day, I don’t believe it matters what they find on this guy. If both congressional houses are controlled by GOP I don’t believe they have the courage to impeach him regardless of the evidence. If the truth was known, Obama and Holder should probably be sitting Leavenworth right now. I bet they skate and retire to the good life.
