Obama has a least 2 members of the Muslim Brotherhood on the White House staff.

The Taliban has been inside the building since 2008.

My 6 year old grandson is visiting (school break) and has been watching “Spooky Buddies” while I have been downstairs watching the hearings. Grandma is not above using a DVD as a babysitter at times. Need to take him to the park. :)

The discussion is about the enemy attack in Libya, presumably by Al Qaeda.

It seems to me that the metaphor for serious danger, ie the enemy has penetrated the perimeter and is in fact within the building, would describe the enemy in Libya as Al Qaeda rather than the Afghanistan related Taliban.

Taliban? Taliban in building?

Was Taliban mentioned in hearing? If so, I missed who said what about Taliban in hearing and on thread.

“His response to that was, ‘You are asking for the sun, moon and the stars.’ And my response to him – his name was Jim – ‘Jim, you know what makes most frustrating about this assignment? It is not the hardships, it is not the gunfire, it is not the threats. It is dealing and fighting against the people, programs and personnel who are supposed to be supporting me. And I added (sic) it by saying, ‘For me the Taliban is on the inside of the building.’”

Delighted to hear cspan callers get the picture and dying to know what will happen with Hillary’s legacy now. The meeting with Obama, who canceled his campaigning today for a meeting with her tells us war is on within the administration.

...Its because Obama never did get the proper Constitutionally required permission from Congress to wage war on Libya, and therefore did not have the proper funds for security in the aftermath...

THIS WAS THE RESULT!

Note the cspan host deflects passionate callers with innocuous questions. Brian Lamb did not do this unless callers ran long. These today barely get started to their point.

I would begin to feel somewhat better if Lamb, Kennedy, Clinton and Rice were made to go to the burnt out consulate for duty, with the same security Ambassador Stevens and the others had.

Remember, Hillary has taken enemy fire. It was most harrowing, based on her recollection.

These are some that we know about.

1) Dalia Mogahed, who is coincidentally the Senior Analyst and Executive Director at the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. In 2009, Obama nominated Mogahed to sit on his Advisory Council on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, reproting to the White Hut.

2) Rashad Hussain, a lawyer and the U.S. Special Envoy to the Organisation of the Islamic Conference (OIC), reporting to the White Hut.

3)Azizah al-Hibri, the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom, reporting to the White Hut.

4) Huma Abedan, whose mother is placed highly within the Muslim Brotherhood, aid to Sec State Hillery Clinton, has access to the White Hut staff and the pResident.

There are others.

Yes, all of that ordnance is itching to go to the Gaza Strip.The Russian transport subs will soon be docking in Tripoli to load up.Since Obama does not particularly like Bibi, I doubt he will do much about it, even though today Turkey likely interdicted an arms shipment by air from Russia to Syria.

The stage is pretty much set for a huge conflagration centered on Israel, thanks to Obama.

He still gets emotional talking about what he saw in Libya. There were 4 brave Americans who died under circumstances we can scarcely fathom-—the terror, the fear, the ANARCHY, of being killed in that fashion.

There’s a big difference between being asked to make a sacrifice and being forced to become one.

This is some of the ugliest stuff to revealed to date.

4 more years of this? You must be nuts.

“Hmm ... need to see it in context but I took it as inside the governement.”

Maggie, when I first heard him say “inside the building” I also thought he meant the government/State Dept as a whole. But, the more I think about it maybe he meant Obama being in the White House. I too need to hear him say it again in context.
