(CNSNews.com) – Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb refused to use the word “terrorist” during her testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday, saying she is not in the position to make “any judgments on my own.”

Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) pressed Lamb, who appeared as a witness on Capitol Hill on the security breaches surrounding the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi last month, following her testimony:

“Today as I listen to people, and you, Ms. Lamb, have said you’ve described these attackers in a number of ways, but you don’t mention terrorist at all. Why is that?” Burton asked.

We wouldn’t want to jump to any hasty judgments regarding their actions.

Maybe they were on a family picnic or something, I mean we Americans are so ignorant of their customs.

This state department fool should be in the first group that resigns.

(CNSNews.com) – Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb refused to use the word “terrorist” during her testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday, saying she is not in the position to make “any judgments on my own.”

Rep. Dan Burton (R-Ind.) pressed Lamb, who appeared as a witness on Capitol Hill on the security breaches surrounding the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi last month, following her testimony:

“Today as I listen to people, and you, Ms. Lamb, have said you’ve described these attackers in a number of ways, but you don’t mention terrorist at all. Why is that?” Burton asked.

Why would you call this anything but a terrorist attack? Why do you call them attackers?” Burton added.

“Sir, I have just presented the facts as they come across,” Lamb said. “I am not making any judgments on my own.”

Sorry lady, you just DID.

The State Department’s refusal to make a “judgment” that they were terrorists reminds me of this classic exchange:

General “Buck” Turgidson: Ahem... The Duty Officer asked General Ripper to confirm the fact that he *had* issued the go code, and he said, uh, “Yes gentlemen, they are on their way in, and no one can bring them back. For the sake of our country, and our way of life, I suggest you get the rest of SAC in after them. Otherwise, we will be totally destroyed by Red retaliation. Uh, my boys will give you the best kind of start, 1400 megatons worth, and you sure as hell won’t stop them now, uhuh. Uh, so let’s get going, there’s no other choice. God willing, we will prevail, in peace and freedom from fear, and in true health, through the purity and essence of our natural... fluids. God bless you all” and he hung up.
Uh, we’re, still trying to figure out the meaning of that last phrase, sir.

President Merkin Muffley: There’s nothing to figure out, General Turgidson. This man is obviously a psychotic.

General “Buck” Turgidson: We-he-ell, uh, I’d like to hold off judgement on a thing like that, sir, until all the facts are in.

That’s okay...Eric Nordstrom made up for it by saying he felt like the Taliban were inside the building!

Obviously , since they weren’t terorists , our leaders have alredy indicated that we have already won “the war with terrorism”.
Not terrorists : these were just highly-spirited fellows who just happened to be armed with RPG and automatic weapons looking for a nice , urban target range ?
I am sure that the anarchists in the “Occupy “ movement would be willing to hold the targets in front of their chests to help out for another anarchy group !
If the “war with terrorism” is already won , then why is it we have DHS , military in cities (in violation of ‘posse commitas ‘), and TSA doing street stops and pat-downs ?
Who are the ( illegal ) criminals then ?

The group of hiighly-spirited fellows were just out to repeat the refrain : “ This is what Dumbocracy looks Like “

She is one of the reasons our state dept is so bad. She cannot think on her own. She only parrots what she is told. Why do we have such a person working there?

The U.S. State Department only hires liberals who are unemployable anywhere else...so we overpay them just to show up for work, but we apparently can't afford to pay them to think, so naturally they are told not to think for themselves.

SO, WHY ARE WE FILLING THE STATE DEPT. WITH MERE PLACESITTERS WHO OBVIOUSLY ARE NOT CAPABLE OF MAKING THE RIGHT DECISIONS!!!!

Should have asked her about them being “Cold Blooded Murderers.”

See how she would have reacted to that.

At the time Lamb was saying this, CNN was broadcasting a story about how Romney was going to hurt women. Ideologues wouldn’t even try to cover up this Libya story. These are people being paid by the Democrats. Any publicly held company that advertises on a media outlet that is covering-up this Libya debacle, has management that is guilty of not exercising the proper responsibility with the stockholder’s hard-earned money. What an absolutely shameful performance by CNN.

Romney wins, fire everyone in the state department, audit it and find out where all the money went. Then arrest them and bring them up on charges of sedition.

What comes after that I will leave to the imagination.

The State Department was the most Communist-infiltrated part of the Federal Government. They wielded enormous influence within the department.
I suspect, as result, the created a culture where the US State Department was about “helping” every other country and entity, EXCEPT the United States...

“Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Charlene Lamb refused to use the word “terrorist” during her testimony to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Wednesday...”

Call the commie state department bitch a liar, and ask her if she has a high enough IQ to play tic-tac-toe. It’s way past time to get into the pit and stick these Nazi whore’s faces into the mud. These females want to destroy our families. The don’t-hit-women rules don’t apply to these Satanic female snakes.
