    Today terrorists attacked Attaturk airport in Istanbul, Turkey, at last count leaving 28 dead and at least 60 injured: -- At least 28 people have been killed and 60 others wounded in the attack on Istanbul Ataturk Airport in Turkey, Istanbul Gov. Vasip Sahin told Turkey's state-run news agency TRT. It is unclear if the total includes the bombers. Another report, from semi-official news agency Anadolu, said six of the wounded are in critical condition. A total of 49 ambulances were sent to the site. -- Turkey's Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag earlier said at least 10 people were killed and...

    Donald Trump is finally getting some air cover in Florida. The NRA is playing an anti-Hillary Clinton ad about Benghazi in the state and other battlegrounds. Featured in the spot is Mark Geist, a security contractor who fought in Benghazi. "Hillary as President? No thanks. I served in Benghazi. My friends didn’t make it. They did their part. Do yours.” The entire ad campaign is $2 million, per USA Today. Trump has not run a single ad yet in Florida while Hillary Clinton and her allies have spent $7.3 million already.

    Hillary Clinton said on Tuesday that the long-awaited report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi “found nothing” new on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, during her tenure as secretary of state. And Stevens’ family agrees. “I do not blame Hillary Clinton or [former Defense Secretary] Leon Panetta,” Anne Stevens, MD, Chris’ sister who has served as the family spokesperson since his death, told the New Yorker’s Robin Wright. “They were balancing security efforts at embassies and missions around the world.

It has not been dealt with.” Smith says there’s only one thing that would give her closure: to “see Hillary in stripes.” “I think she ought to be made to acknowledge what she did, and she has not. So far, all she has done is...

    Casualties sustained during the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, could have been much higher if it was not for the work of a mysterious CIA officer, according to an official report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi. The report, released Tuesday, noted that U.S. military support did not arrive to aid the small contingent of U.S. personnel defending the consulate during the attack. Instead, it was a militia made up of former Gaddafi loyalists known as Libyan Military Intelligence (LMI) that would come to the rescue of the U.S. officials several hours...

    Shortened title. Full title: House Benghazi Report Confirms ‘Spontaneous Video Protest’ Story Was Deliberate Political Disinformation The House Benghazi report makes it completely clear that no one peddling the “spontaneous video protest” theory of the attack ever believed it, not for a single hour. It was a piece of deliberate disinformation concocted in Washington for political purposes, as critics of President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have long maintained. As Catherine Herridge of Fox News reports, the video story was “crafted in Washington by Obama administration appointees and reflected neither eyewitness nor real-time reports from the Americans...

    Cheryl Mills, the longtime attorney, friend and former chief of staff for Hillary Clinton, influenced the findings of an internal State Department review of the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack, according to a draft of the final House Benghazi Committee report. A section of the report obtained by POLITICO says the so-called Accountability Review Board did not act independently, as it was supposed to do, and was consistently influenced by Mills. Mills, the report says, helped select members of the panel, gave at least one other State Department official permission to talk to the reviewers, oversaw the production of some documents...

    The House Select Committee on Benghazi report contains at least one major bombshell: the committee found no evidence of the “three directives” that President Barack Obama claimed he issued when he first learned about the ongoing terror attack. Neither the committee’s official report, nor the Democrats’ dissenting minority report, mentions the “three directives.” (In fact, President Obama barely features in the Democrats’ report at all, as if someone else were Commander-in-Chief that evening.)

    FOUR AMERICANS DIED, AND HILLARY CLINTON IS RESPONSIBLE! Hell has space for this woman right now, please Lord Jesus! There was no way that Hillary Clinton should be the nominee for the Democratic Party with Benghazi over her head. She was told of the extreme atmosphere happening in that region and she turned her back. Ambassador Chris Stevens asked for more security, and she turned her back. When those Americans were attacked in that consulate, she was nowhere to be found. When the bodies came back to the United States, with her back turn, she told the American public that...

    State Department officials on an emergency conference call during the Benghazi attack brought up concerns about whether Marines that might have been deployed should wear uniforms — something officials previously said could hurt diplomacy in the region, according to House Benghazi investigators. The final GOP-authored House Benghazi report released Tuesday included new details of a two-hour video teleconference call the night of the attack, a session led by White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough. Clinton and top Defense officials were also on the call, which was supposed to center on how to get Americans out of harm's way. But...

    The long-awaited House committee report on the 2012 Benghazi attacks revealed a striking irony: In the end, the forces that came to evacuate State Department and CIA officers that night were not fellow Americans, but a secret unit of former military officers from the Qaddafi regime that Washington – and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – had helped overthrow. Their intervention, according to the report, likely saved “over two dozen lives.” “In other words, some of the very individuals the United States had helped remove from power during the Libyan revolution were the only Libyans that came to the assistance...

    A long-awaited report on the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi details an array of bureaucratic miscues and inter-agency blunders but does not specifically blame former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for events that led to the deaths of four Americans. One section of the report seems to allege that U.S. officials fundamentally misunderstood who their allies were at the time. The report found that 35 Americans were saved not by a "quasi-governmental militia" as previous reports concluded, or even a group the U.S. saw as allies. Instead, the report determines that the Americans were saved by the "Libyan Military Intelligence,"...

The report released Tuesday pointedly blamed a “rusty bureaucratic process” for the slow-moving response the night of the attack. The report said despite orders from President Obama and then-Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to deploy, the first military force did not do so until more than 13 hours after the...

That’s one overarching conclusion reached by two leading Republicans on the House Select Committee on Benghazi after an investigation lasting a year and a half. “Until now the administration has led us to believe the military did not have assets, men, or machines close enough or ready enough to arrive in Benghazi in time to save lives,” Reps. Jim Jordan, R-Ohio, and Mike Pompeo, R-Kansas, write. “An asset that could have made a difference would have been armed drones....

    Democratic members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi published their final report on the investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack Monday, front-running the findings from committee Republicans that are expected to be released within days. The 339-page report was accompanied by the unclassified versions of transcripts from interviews with dozens of witnesses involved in the handling of the attack. Democrats vowed their report would highlight "abuses" from Chairman Trey Gowdy and panel Republicans who probed the circumstances surrounding Benghazi for more than two years. The minority report, entitled "Honoring Courage, Improving Security, and Fighting the Exploitation of...

    One of the heroic survivors of the 2012 Benghazi attack, who held off invading Islamists until rescuers reached the besieged CIA base, has begun a national campaign to counter President Obama’s narrative on the terrorist threat. Former Army Ranger Kris “Tanto” Paronto has started a nonprofit called Leading From the Front, which he hopes will translate into a national movement to drive home the real threat Islamic extremists pose to America. “Radical Islam is at war with America, and we are slowly losing,” Mr. Paronto said. “From Benghazi to Orlando, we are seeing the deadly consequences of President Obama and...

    The White House and the House Select Committee on Benghazi are at a standoff over whether President Barack Obama should answer a series of questions about the 2012 terrorist attack in Libya that left four Americans dead. Neil Eggleston, counsel to the president, blasted the committee for sending the president a list of questions about the attack — an inquiry the administration deemed inappropriate and a partisan attempt to frame the White House as uncooperative. Eggleston has encouraged Obama not to answer the committee’s questions “because of the implications of his response on the constitutional separation of powers,” according to...

  • "Vanity" Where is Hillary Clinton?

    The question of the day, in fact, of the campaign, is where is Hillary Clinton? For at least the last two weeks she has held a few campaign rallies that were either, lightly attended by her supporters or filled up with paid Clinton staffers. As for this weekend, her staff said she was taking time off from campaigning. What campaigning? Where are the press conferences? Actually....I believe that POTUS Obama in now the number one campaigner for the upcoming POTUS election. Hillary has been sent to a "Time Out" by Obama, who is now terrified, that what little positive legacy...

    His only qualification was giving lots of money to the Clinton Foundation A few weeks ago, ABC broke the story of Raj Fernando, a big-money donor to the Clinton Foundation - as well as past campaigns of both Obama and Hillary - and how he managed to land a spot on the prestigious International Security Advisory Board. That’s a board generally populated by former generals, governors and top diplomats, who advise the Secretary of State on international security matters. Lots of eyebrows were raised when a securities trader with no background in any of this was introduced as a new...

    A drone operator's classified testimony reportedly gives credence to allegations that Democrats and a Pentagon political appointee tried to stonewall efforts of the GOP-led House Benghazi Select Committee to question witnesses. Lawnews.com writer Chris White on Thursday posted a summary from Benghazi committee head Rep. Trey Gowdy on the June testimony from "John from Iowa," who called into Sean Hannity’s radio program in 2013 and said he'd been a drone sensor operator the night of the deadly Sept. 11, 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost. "This drone sensor operator confirmed details the committee learned at the same time [the...

    Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C., said Thursday that one of the final hurdles to releasing a final report from the House Select Committee on Benghazi is an ongoing negotiation with the Obama administration over how much of the report should be classified. Gowdy participated in the Senate Republican lunch Thursday, and a senator at the lunch said Gowdy noted the issue of classification, raising the prospect that some information in the final report may not become public. "The fact that you have to go to the White House for a lot of this indicates big-time problems," Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., told...
