Some of us have believed from the get go that this was about Obama arming AQ in Syria and not about rounding up stray weapons....me included. Obama is arming our enemies and the Mexican drug cartels. He is sharing sensitive intel with foreign agents and sitting the ME on fire for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over.

Yes....I said it...(to quote a fav. saying of Mark Levin)

I am sick at what is happening to our country. The more I dig the sicker I become.

The brotherhood is in a position to use the WMD’s that were captured,someone had to make sure our finger prints were not on them. Something went wrong?

Putin has troops in Syria, He plays chess, Obama plays checkers and Amb Stevens paid the price for his games.

Obama is nothing more than a puppet for the global Marxists and Muslim brotherhood......and that includes Putin. Obama is on his side and anybody else that wants to destroy and/or take the US down a notch or two. There is no other explanation for his conduct FRiend.

The Dems on the committee will act as defense lawayers for the regime and the Reps on the commitee will fold. Happens every time there are investigations of this kind. Consider the hearings during Clinton’s reign.

Panetta is a tool and a fool!! They should know exactly where the WMDS are!! They belonged to Saddam and Russia moved them. I am sure that Bush had to tell Obama the intel on where they were located, but the dems and Marxists can’t let it be found out that Saddam had chemical weapons. Their politics are going to get everybody killed. We have AQ flags flying over our embassies for cryin out loud and enemies of this country in the WH and State Department.

IMPEACH!!

Thanks for ping.

“If these are not impeachable offenses....I don’t know what is anymore.”

Lol. There she goes!

I can always tell when you re-engage. You start using the “I” word!

“If these are not impeachable offenses....I don’t know what is anymore.”

Nor does anyone else. I’ve been waiting for legal and Constitutional experts to write current and applicable articles on this very question. So far...crickets!

We can’t rely on official definitions (dictionary, history, Constitution) anymore. It’s as if the word has been erased from our civil life.

I’ve only heard a little bit of Issa’s opening statement- but from his tone (so far) I think Hillary is going to throw O under the bus. Issa thanks Hillary for her cooperation etc..which tells me she MAY be willing to give O the bottom of her shoe. We’ll see.

Also- interesting to hear John Bolton’s take- he reminds us there are the CAREER people at State and then there are the political people there- two different groups with different goals. He says the career people are NOT going to take the hit for the political guys who he implies are the ones making these decisions.

Cummings is a ‘black-hearted’ evil bastard and an SoB.

The Dhimmis have gotten more people killed and put to death after being left out to hang on their own.. Evil.

He wants the facts driven into the ground. He claims political manipulation.. and being cut out of the process.. typical dem.

Cummings doing his best to impugn Issa.

The reason why these hearings may unearth a lot is that it pits Hillary against Obama. Issa has been very gracious and complimentary to Hillary in his comments so far, almost exceptionally so..like he's offering her a lifeline..

She has some 'splaining to do..

So the Arab Spring and all that's going on in the Middle East is all a ruse and in reality is a covert way to get arms and weapons to the Syrian rebel fighters where this regime has already picked sides: by proxy it's the US vs Russia in a proxy war in Syria ?

Hello ? Iran-Contra anybody ?

“Obama is nothing more than a puppet for the global Marxists and Muslim brotherhood......and that includes Putin.”

99% of the time I agree with you. The only time Putin does not support Obama is in supporting the brotherhood. He understands they are a threat to him in several areas. He saw what Obama was doing in using these terrorist to fight his people in Syria. He has many boots on the ground and did not want them killed. He could not allow these weapons to be transfered so he dealt with the problem.

Well- I don’t think there’s probably any daylight between the political appointees and the careerists at State in terms of ideology- but they have separate agendas in practical terms.

I don’t believe this has anything to do with a proxy war against Russia. Obama is on the same side with Russia AND the Muslim Brotherhood. Russia is just protecting state secrets in Syria. They don’t give a rats behind about Assad.

Chaffetz is amped up for sure. The democrats talking point is that the House Republicans are to blame for cutting the State Dept budget for security.

The House did not give the administration the money they requested, but they did not ‘cut’ their budget.
