John McCain says the Obama Administration has Classified Benghazi Surveillance Tapes Top Secret!
Vanity | 27 October, 2012 | Dean Weingarten

Posted on 10/27/2012 5:45:20 PM PDT by marktwain

At the townhall in Yuma, Arizona today, Senator John McCain said that the Obama administration has classified the surveillance tapes from the Benghazi scandal as "Top Secret".

This makes the tapes unavailable to the public and most legislators. Senator McCain seemed skeptical about the necessity of classifying the tapes.

Probably will have Holder's Justice Dept. "seal" the records, just like his college transcripts, Birth Certificate, Passport, etc., etc.

Someday, probably not in my lifetime, SOMEONE will find out WHO he really is, how he got there as the Token Black/Half-Breed communist and who funded it all.

I agree.. This has got to be extremely bad and very damaging. If this A-hole wins, look to this situation turning into Watergate II....

Something smells very bad about this...even though the left has been behind Zero, they are beginning to turn, and I think that many reporters will be looking to make a name for themselves and uncovering what is behind this...

1) They don’t want you to see just how long the attack actually was and

2) They don’t want anyone to see the terrorists attacking using weapons that were supplied to the muslim brotherhood in Syria by this Administration.

I used to have a Top Secret clearance in the Army during the Cold War and was privy to some good inside info. Never - for the life of me - would I have ever repeated anything I saw.
However - if I had access to this tape - I would interpret its classification as more political than related to National Security and therefore - would leak its contents for the public good.
I say this with a heavy heart as this is what this administration and CiC is doing to the fiber of this country and this retired soldier.

Mr. Obama, you had better remember something, and remember it good; both the CIA and Navy Seals know you f*cked them over good. You might want to think long and hard on that fact before attempting any type of tyrannical action.

Three more months.

Then declassify everything.

Overturn all Executive Orders.

Release to the public all of the president’s records.

It was a couple of hours ago at the town hall in Yuma, Arizona at Booth Machinery. The event was taped. I have access to an audio copy, but have not listened to it yet.

Obama hasn't got the faintest clue what it means to be a SEAL, he doesn't have the least idea what men of such a degree of character and committment are capable of over a period of years, or how long their memories are.

I think that is a little nutty...Glen makes it sound like Obama has orchestrated the ouster of Ghaddafi and now working on Assad. Simpler and more obvious thing is that Obama went on an apology tour right after being elected and that was obviously weakness to these American hating jihadist whom now are becoming empowered. Glen is making a weakling sound much more sinister than what is really taking place.

Our national policy was to out Ghaddafi and is now to get rid of Assad. While there are more forces at play, it is not at all clear if Ghaddafi would have been taken out if Obama did not want it to happen. Probably would not have happened.

How is that nutty? 0coward did orchestrate the NATO sacking of Libya for the expressly stated goal of ousting Gaddafi. 0coward and Hillbilly have both stated that they seek the fall of Assad. Both were/are clearly articulated foreign policy.

Question:

Suppose both audio and video of the attack were available, as well as solid proof that Obama issued the stand-down order and allowed Americans in Benghazi to die.

That would be abhorrent.

But would there be any illegality? We mention impeachment, but as CIC, is it unlawful for him to make bad calls?

If gunrunning to the jihadist rebels is proven, is that illegal or just stupid?

Just throwing this out for comment.

The tapes are not just video. The audio and text chats among the participants is also recorded. I suspect those chats—particularly the audio chats—are what 0bama wants no one to hear.

Which is why I'm not a fan of Glenn Beck. His problem is 80% of the content of his stories are right on and valuable info but then there 20% of that content in each story that jumps the shark and becomes AlexJonesy and destroys the remaining 80% of the story.

So, in this days technology, there is only one copy of a government surveillance tape? If it was being recorded, it was being sent to multiple locations and probably being saved.

I have listened to the tape. There are about 3 minutes and 40 seconds on the Libya coverup. John McCain starts with: “Libya is the worst coverup that has ever been in the history of our country.”
