RSO Nordstrom is a strong and articulate witness. DAS Lamb not so much. U/S Kennedy so-so.
Nordstrom: For me, the Taliban is inside of the building.

That was one powerful moment.
That “Taliban inside the building remark” had to sting.
It’s so obvious the two on the right are covering for obama and Hillary. As are the congress folks on the left.
It’s not up on youtube yet but this one is:
Libya Embassy Security Officer -Obama’s Plan For Libya: “Hope That Everything Would Get Better”
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.
So, the State Department is where Teddy Bare, Jr.(Patrick Kennedy) is hiding now, must be great to go from one federal teat to another so easily.
different Patrick Kennedy
Really, that’s surprising, I didn’t watch; but, you know what is said about “assume.”
Thanks for the thread.
that comment is going to get so much play
funny how it almost didn’t come..only at the very end
Thanks, Eric Nordstrom and Col Woods
But Obama, Clinton, and Rice have yet to retract their first announcement. These murders happened because of an offensive '14 minute video'.
I am at a loss for words to describe the utter contemptible presence, presentation and responses given by Kennedy and Lamb.
kabar, can you please explain what went on today by these two state side DOS employees?
That was a direct hit at the State Department, IMO.
Nordstrom and Woods are very brave.
I have been a career foreign service officer for 39 years, Kennedy said
I didn’t watch this on tv. Was this the same Patrick Kennedy, Teddy’s son. He wouldn’’t be old enough to have had a career in the foreign service for 39 years.
See numbers 10 and 11. Not the same PK, but, if I were a democrat, my inaccurate comment wouldn’t make any difference.
Chaffetz had tears in his eyes when Gowdy was speaking. He went to Libya to try to find out what happened.
I think he knows a good deal of what went down. Probably heard it from the CIA. He was quick to shut down one line of questioning that would have outed CIA and he shut down the photo even though it is on Google.
Hillary has now said it was a terrorist attack. It will be interesting to learn from the intelligence community why they towed the Administration line for three days. Petraeus was saying the same thing for the first few days. It is obvious this was the party line.
Trey Gowdy and Sandy Adams were the stars of the hearing. They asked the right questions and drew the right conclusion. If you don't have the facts or evidence, you don't go out proclaiming that the video was the source of the attack. You wait until you have all the facts. The President of Libya said it was a terrorist attack a few days after 9/11. When confronted with this by Wallace, Rice responded that our intelligence was better than his.
As far as Lamb is concerned, she is a career employee and served abroad as an RSO. She appears incompetent and out to sea. She must have been part of an effort to put women in high level positions.
Not the same Kennedy.
That’s ok. I made a very bad comment because I thought it was the former rep from RI. I had to have the moderator remove it.
I posted on the ABC wall and they deleted my message!
That is a bs comment! They have 88 security personnel in Iraq of which the threat is minimal and they couldn’t place some of them in Benghazi for our Ambassador? How about all the bodyguards that surround Valerie Jarrett? What does she need security for - who is she? Obama’s personal advisor????? Don’t you get what this man is saying? The Taliban is in the building - don’t you wonder what he means by that? Then enemy is already working within our administration. Why do you think that? Look at Hillary’s secretary - muslim brotherhood sympathizer, Valerie Jarret *Iranian* - Obama - one wonders. His ring is a Muslim ring that he has been wearing since the 80’s. Hmmmm..... The enemy from within!
Now why would they delete that message? Truth hurts?
To me the Taliban is inside the WH and by extension, because of our congresscritters’ deep silence, inside Congress.
I sure appreciate your insight. From out here in fly-over country these two sure seemed clueless as to what their own words made them sound like. Dumb and dumber, they did Obama or Hillary's State no favors today.
