Congressman Devin Nunes - State Dept. refuses to brief Intelligence Committee
The John Batchelor Show ^ | 9/13/2012 | Angelo Mysterioso

Posted on 09/13/2012 6:46:21 PM PDT by Tex-Con-Man

There is no story/link.

John Batchelor was interviewing Congressman Devin Nunes when he said he had breaking news.

The Congressman said the Intelligence Committee requested someone from the State Dept. brief them on the events in the Middle East, etc., and they refused. And didn't give a reason why. They would have settled for staffer, they weren't asking for anyone in particular.

He said it was unprecedented and had never happened as long as he could remember. He made a point of saying there was a great deal of bi-partisan cooperation on the committee, so it couldn't be blamed on election year partisanship.

Just thought it was an interestng piece of information.

I guess Hillary doesn't want to be bothered with the whole congressional oversight function.

This is an easy read. No one at State has any intelligence.

Hillary and Obama evil they both need to go. The only difference between them is one has one and the other doesn’t. What are they hiding?

I’m wondering why Hillary hasn’t offered to resign. She is the CIC (clown in charge) of the State Department and this fiasco happened on her watch. If she doesn’t resign, will the Food Stamp President have big ones and just fire her?

They probably can’t send a rep. over because they haven’t gotten their lies straight yet. They were still having problems with the news people going off script about the bogus anti-heathen film by interviewing “experts” who stated that the film was not the cause. Need one teleprompter script that all off them read from before they send any reps out to brief.

—“Details of how they died haven’t been made public.”

And I seriously doubt that the details of the ambassador’s autopsy will be revealed. It’s been reported that he was sodomized before he was murdered. It’s also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered. Why? To slice his innards to shreds, and to add to the excruciating pain. I truly pray that I’m wrong!—

—“It’s also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered. Why? To slice his innards to shreds, and to add to the excruciating pain.”

He was. There was a video floating around of that part of the murder, going around third world blog sites. Some teenaged mouthbreather slid a narrow, stiletto type blade about 8 inches long and a half inch wide up Qaddaffi’s bum. The intention was to slit and create the pain you described. Ironically, this murdered ambassador had an active hand in creating the chaos that led to Qaddaffi’s overthrow. Unintended consequences to be sure.—

—“It’s also been reported that Gaddafi(sp?) was sodomized with a knife before he was murdered.”

Found a relatively tame version:
http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/news/regions/middle-east/111024/gaddafi-sodomized-video-gaddafi-sodomy

These are the people the US State Department, the UN, and NATO backed. Seems like our pet vipers are not so tame as the smart Beltway people thought.—

These details get out, people will be disgusted, and obama and hillary will be doomed.

Seperation of Powers no longer exists. Congress and the SCOTUS are mere backdrops to be exploited. Obama has made that perfectly clear.

This is when it is going to get interesting. This is going to be when Hilary throws Obama under the bus. She may not show her cards as yet, but mark my words, she will use this to differentiate herself from Obama.

If Obama wins the election she will not be the SOS during his next term. If he loses the election, she will start her campaign before Rommney even takes the oath of office. Once Rommney is sworn in, she will be writing a tell all book about the Obama admin.

If Obama manages to win the election, she will release a different tome during the last two years of the Obama Presidency, to show the behind the scene actions of Obama’s failings and how she would do it differently.

U.S. denies premeditation report in Libya attack

Shawn Turner, spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, emailed: “This is absolutely wrong. We are not aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent.”

I think Hillary is seeing that small 2016 window closing now.
There is now a lot of good video now showing her being clueless on foreign policy. She is done.


I never understand why she took SOS job it seemed to me politically stupid. Because any of Zero's foreign policy failures would be her failures too, since she is SOS and as SOS a participant in those failures. If she had stayed as a Senator from New York she could have had Reid's job. All she had to do was ask and the Senate Rats would have fallen all over themselves giving it to her. She could have stayed above the fray, she might have been able to actually get a budget done. She could have ridden to the Rat rescue as the Zero administration augers into the ground. Now she has to ride that disaster down with the rest of Zero's minions.

Again she's is a political genius? She has talent as a politician? Where is the evidence? I am actually amazed that Slick thought the SOS job was a good decision.

Zbigniew Brzezinski “What's a few riled up Muslims?”

Congress wanted a cable. Zbig blocked the declassification of the cable between Ford and Kissinger about East Timor. Coincidentally, Obama’s mother went back to Indonesia right about the time of that massacre.

In the days of the internet - and those in high places that want Obama out - we might learn something resembling the truth about the killing of Stevens.

For dated Freepers

That classic was already dated in that thread; it's hard to believe those events were 16 years ago. My brain plays it back instantly on rereading the lyrics.

I'm frustrated that I don't have this on my computer already. I don't think it appeared on any of Shanklin's CDs. I did record it off radio onto VCR then copied it (amongst about 20 hours of Rush highlights) onto my Rush greatest hits videotapes. I later burned those "videos" to DVDs. I just haven't found time to proceed with ripping the audio and dividing it into the individual tracks.

I hope that you are right. It could come to pass.

It wasn't many years ago that two men that I had exchanged emails with... Amateur Radio operators working with the UN in East Timor... were hacked to death in a small shack where they had set up their ham radio equipment and which was located some distance outside of the compound. We are dealing with satanic creatures... owned by the devil and powered by hate.

Kennedy Administration rejected Operation Northwoods.I don’t think it is known if JFK knew of the details. But there was a meeting with Kennedy present that referred to the plan .

I’ve had the honor of meeting CA Rep. Devin Nunes. Me, being from the ultra liberal Silicon Valley, it was refreshing to meet a conservative in CA, albeit not from the local area. He’s very young and from the inland agricultural area of CA, but very promising. I’ve been sending him messages hoping to see him get engaged in the battle. I’m pleased to see him speak out now. Watch this guy. He has real potential.
