What is White House Covering Up in “GateCrashers” Scandal? - Special Report
Accuracy In Media ^ | 12/08/2009 | Roger Aronoff

Posted on 12/11/2009 2:28:46 AM PST by ErnstStavroBlofeld

The evidence clearly shows that the congressional investigation of the White House Gatecrashers is being controlled and limited. Homeland Security Committee chairman Bennie Thompson (D-MS), now the subject of an Ethics Committee investigation, has made it clear that he wants to limit the investigation. Is he trying to protect White House officials with something to hide?

Ignoring evidence of White House connections to the alleged gatecrashers, Tareq and Michaele Salahi, Thompson will not subpoena Desirée Rogers, the White House social secretary who is a very close friend of Barack and Michelle Obama.

As a result of the stonewalling and cover-up, and after several weeks of sensational media coverage, we are still no closer to answering the question: How did the Salahis get into the Arrival Ceremony of the first Obama White House state dinner on November 24, honoring the Prime Minister of India, when they were not officially invited and their names were not on the list?

The White House has consistently acted as if it has something to hide. Though an initial letter from the committee requested Ms. Rogers' attendance at the December 3rd hearing held by the committee, the White House claimed executive privilege, or separation of powers, as the reason for her to not have to testify.

This is the same White House that promised openness and transparency.

As I alluded to in a previous column, the evidence indicates that the Salahis are publicity seekers and possibly con-artists. But the verdict is still out as to whether or not they actually "crashed" the state dinner or were waved on through by White House officials aware of their connections to a notorious Obama friend and associate, pro-Palestinian activist Rashid Khalidi.

Wasn’t Rashid Khalidi the person who supposedly got Obama into Harvard?

Haven't really been following the “crasher” threads but one has to wonder what nefarious characters this administration has kept under the FOIA radar.

It’s obvious. Barry Petty is getting ashamed at having to fire one whacktard incompetant after another that he’s surrounded himself with, so they are in sheilding mode, and Obama has ordered the Secret Service to take the blame for the breach of security that someone ordered them to allow.

People, you need to understand!

This man, Obama, is a puppet though also President. He is being used and can be discarded when no longer useful to his handlers. By allowing such ease of access to the White House, he is being set up for the ultimate sacrifice to the Progressive Movement.

Of course it will all be blamed on those mean, vicious right-wingers!

The GateCrasher scandal is being investigated at about the same pace as the Fort Hood massacre.

I like cushman’s theory that the WH was in cahoots with Bravo and someone on the inside knew what was going on:

This is actually a no brainer.

IF the gatecrashers get indicted or charged, then we will know the WH was not involved.

IF they don't then we will know they were, cuz even the WH will not be able to prevent discovery or witnesses being called to testify.

Desiree will not be allowed to be sworn under oath as then Congress may ask questions she would prefer not to answer(how many times has Bill Ayers visited the WH or how many Muslim holy men came to celebrate with Obama Muslim services, etc.)

Remember there is hardly anything that the MSM reports that isn’t what the CO2mmunists want reported...

What’s the WH hiding? Maybe that this gate crashing wasn’t a mistake afterall. This is just more slight of hand, media distraction by the prevaricator and chief. BTW, what’s been going on with the Ft. Hood investigation?
