State Department bureaucracy versus Obama administration
American Thinker ^ | October 10, 2012 | Thomas Lifson

They are, in other words, pre-empting Clinton and Rice from blaming subordinates (them) for the lies told to the public, pretending Benghazi was not an Al Qaeda operation on the anniversary of 9/11. The president was loath to admit that the killing of Osama bin Laden hadn't ended the AQ threat. In fact, even now he maintains that the terror organization is "on its heels," perhaps even now hoping to maintain the false narrative of a spontaneous response to a YouTube vide. Keep in Mind that Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador who was dragged through the streets of Benghazi and reportedly violently publicly sodomized, was one of the State Department's lifers, a career bureaucrat in the Foreign Service. Hillary Clinton is now the woman-on-the-spot. Does she protect herself and point out that she never stated that the terror attack was really another angry mob of Muslims ticked off about insults to their prophet? This implicitly would hang out Susan Rice to dry. But Hillary would be torturing words, reminding everyone of her husband's "depends on what the meaning of 'is' is" evasion. If this scandal and cover-up blows up, she would become collateral damage. This is, after all, a much weightier cover-up than Watergate ever was.

Our State Department has been infested with commies since FDR. Read “Blacklisted by History” and “The Forgotten 500” for proof.

Bumper sticker idea:

Nobody died at Watergate
Remember Chris Stevens

The real reason Amb Stevens and 3 others were murdered:

"While the Rest of You Have Been Distracted…"

and

"WEAPONS HUNTING: The Reason for the 9-11 Murders in Libya"

Obama gave al Qaeda weapons to help overthrow Qaddafi, and was trying to cover it up or get the weapons back

Rodham and Hussein were fast and furiously puffing up the sharia law trial balloon.

They both should be tried for TREASON. They’ve attacked amendment 2. They’ve attacked amendment 1.

Domestic enemies 1 & 2.

It seems that the professional employees at State are no longer willing to take the bullet for the lying politicians.

They are covering their asses and pretty much saying that the political appointees forced this lie on them.

Osama was just a middle-man between the financial backers in Saudi, Kuwait, etc, and the operational people getting the funding. He's replaceable.
