Rep. Gohmert is an American hero. One of the good guys in congress. His video must be very popular. I can’t get it to load right now. Will try later again. Thank you for the link.
My thought as well. I appreciate your opinion. Do I remember you have some background in the state department ?
My guess is he was dead or they thought he was dead. We many never know.
AGREED!! He cancels campaign appearances for a storm but when Americans are being killed and begging for help - he can fly off to Las Vegas, etc. Dispicable (am going to have to get out my thesaurus for adequate adjectives to describe this .....)
Wow that’s big! Which general?
Those were not drones overhead either. If an Ambassador is being attacked in Libya there is likely automatic procedures which only the CIA knows about. One of which would be scrambling Spectre immediately which was likely done and why the Seal was painting the mortars.
Obama says he is going to be monitoring the hurricane from the White House...
Maybe, 0bama was running the “cries for help” past the lawyers and their Rules of Engagement manuals. Maybe they thought that large group of men came from a wedding party??
No problem there! I don’t trust anyone but freepers!!
The media has gone full-blown Soviet. Protect ‘Dear leader’ at ALL costs...even at the cost of their credibility. The behavior of the media is reminiscent of a cult...
Strictly political decision? I don’t think so and this is why..........Obama passed ON THE GREATEST POLITICAL OPPORTUNTY ANY PRESIDENT HAS EVER HAD in the fall of an election year. Imagine a BINLADEN rerun, seals, delta force, troops taking the consulate in real time video, and rescuing Americans. We would be watching this rescue mission 24/7 right up and through Obamas re-election. It was right at his fingertips and yet he STOOD DOWN......WHAT WAS MORE IMPORTANT?
the game has become all to obvious with the dbm at this point. Talk about anything but Bengahzi and that’s all we will hear until the 6th. I am convinced if we want Benghazi as an issue we have to pursue it here and hope that talk radio keeps up with it.
Otherwise its all big bird and binders.
That hurricane turns so sharp in what they are trying to predict, I don’t think it’s going to impact as so, the cold air is already there, so my guess is it’s going to push more to the coast line, and the disclaimer, I’m not a professional meteorologist nor a member of the media...
Well..if he did make the call..this is another impeachable offense I would think, because he is an advisor and not in the official chain of command.
This would be huge Maggie! He is also, as a czar, not required to answer to Congress(is he?). You may have something here.
Pray for America
Actually, I think his reaching across the aisle skills will come in handy. After a huge popular vote mandate, there will be a few dems willing to save themselves and cooperate. The 51st senator perhaps, if needed. Or....the 60th !
You can bet we will get lots of leadership pics of him for his cult members in the media. Cwiss Mathews may have a stroke.
Obama, he only has one ball,
Bite-me has two but they are very small,
Clinton, has a collection,
while Pelosi is braking them all.
If the damage gets too severe are they going to arrest an anti-global warming movie director?
With that in mind, take a look at Petraeus’ recent request for more armed drones.
(Interesting timing, IMHO.)
It is being evaluated by a White House panel known as the Counter-terrorism Security Group, chaired by President Barack Obama’s chief counter-terrorism adviser, John O. Brennan, officials said.
The excuse for not giving Stevens security, especially since he was on a known terrorist hit list, is weak at best. The excuse being that the regime wanted a lower profile and were going to use locals for security. Pretty weak IMHO.IT's difficult as you say to tell what part was planned and what part just fell into place and became not necessarily what the regime was looking for but events evolving.
Bottom line there are few excuses for not giving him the security he requested and even fewer for not sending in help when they requested it during the attack.
What the actual planning was we may never know as you say.
The latest rumor making the rounds is that Barack Obama replaced General Carter Ham at Africom after the general made a move to help the US security officials at the Benghazi consulate and annex. Ham was replaced by Gen. David Rodriquez on October 18. Tiger Droppings reported: The information I heard today was that General [Carter] Ham as head of Africom received the same e-mails the White House received requesting help/support as the attack was taking place. General Ham immediately had a rapid response unit ready and communicated to the Pentagon that he had a unit ready.
General Ham then received the order to stand down. His response was to screw it, he was going to help anyhow. Within 30 seconds to a minute after making the move to respond, his second in command apprehended General Ham and told him that he was now relieved of his command.
The story continues that now General Rodiguez would take General Hams place as the head of Africom
Newt Gingrich on “This Week”:
“We all condemn rape. Now lets talk about whether we condemn killing babies in the 8th and 9th month.” He brought up the Benghazi scandal, high gas prices and the economy as working against Obama.
Those [BLEEP]s are still on my List for what they did during ‘Nam.
....and they will be there always.
Here’s the link on The rumors on Gen Ham..
An autopsy would also show a sexual assault that occured pre or post mortem.
We’ll never be told what happened by this gang.
Makes good sense.
I am thoroughly amazed at how many people, corporations are participating in this cover up. Its truly amazing.
I just watched an hour of MTP and abc with stephy and Benghazi never came up on either show!!Truly amazing.
Fast & Furious proved there are no whistleblower protections from this regime. Just ask the BP agents who went for that to expose the whole program.
I read on another thread that this doesn't make sense...
If it was in fact Stevens phone it would be password protected....
In any case...what happened to the phone....?
Also if they didn't know who he was then his wallet was gone...
so his real phone was taken by his killers....
So I guess they also took his phone...so eventually the password gets cracked and all his contacts and phone numbers are compromised...
The killers then planted another phone with the number of the Embassy so they could find Stevens. ....
no one at the facility knew who he was,
I read on yet another thread that Stevens cover in Libya was that he was arranging a cooperation between US and Libyan hospitals...
Stevens was in contact with all the main Libyan hospitals...
Stevens was an Arabist and spoke the language...
There is one model that stays well off US shore.
VERY unreliable source.
The same trucks that brought them, took the bodies. Old trick in asymmetrical warfare, pick up all your dead. It has a demoralizing effect on the enemy to see the results of a ferocious fire fight but find no dead enemies.
Considering 0 approval rate is plummeting, I think Bengahzi is having an impact despite the total Mass Media blackout. The alternative media, (Talk Radio-Social Media-Internet) plus Fox are getting the message out there.
Mr. Newt was way above the call of duty today. And he finished so strong I thought Georgy, the left wing commie bastard was going to cry, piss-ant coward that he is.
The abortion / rape issue that Mr. Newt finished with was - Obama and Democrats are in favor of killing the Unborn, they voted for late term abortion and for the murder of children that survive late term abortions.
this below is from your link:
Although he insists that all agencies have the opportunity to weigh in on decisions, making differing perspectives available to the Oval Office, Brennan wields enormous power in shaping decisions on kill lists and the allocation of armed drones, the wars signature weapon. When operations are proposed in Yemen, Somalia or elsewhere, it is Brennan alone who takes the recommendations to Obama for a final sign-off.
Let me take a moment and agree with you.
He can do all the reaching he wants, indeed he SHOULD reach.
He should do it with political aplomb NOT for fear of bad press and cocktail party invites.
I think Romney quite capable of doing this and for the early criticism of Romney (and make no mistake I was NOT silent), I did tend to allow him space for working so well with what is such a very, very blue state.
The umbrage was that Romney enacted a state health care plan but a)his overwhelmingly blue state wanted such a thing witness the majority of their elected officals who back it and b)it was a state thing and by all in me, I’d allow a state health ins. mandate thing to be determined by the denizens. Not very smart on these matters but I’ve got an open mind to states setting the agenda, more input from citizens.
I trust a business owner to reach across aisles more than a community organizer and more than a McCain all busy pimping that stupid campaign finance reform bill that had us all awake nights for our concern.
It’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I’m sick of that storm! I was one day ahead of it all week long,just got back last night.
9-11 HEROES then and now - "LET'S ROLL!"
Going on 2 hours of a MSNBC Harris-Perry ‘live’ show, and haven’t heard one iota about Benghazi, but plenty of rebuttal of anything Republican, as expected from these Democrat hacks. Nothing intellectually honest from abortion to early voting, the guest are all Democrat hacks too.
Speculation aside, have you seen one single story or report that even mentions terrorist casualties?
Reversing Roe V Wade is such a wonky argument althought it is a good one. The problem with it is that most people assume reversing Roe V Wade means ending abortion which is why it’s a loser for the GOP....even though it is actually the only way the abortion issue ever dies down.
Let’s review. Roe V Wade says that the right to an abortion is in the constitution. This is just not so!!! Reversing Roe V Wade would simply be staing the obvious.
Now, for the pro abortion crowd should Roe V Wade be reversed, the issue would simply be sent to the states in the same way the ‘death penalty’, ‘gay marriage’, and a host of other issues are sent to the states. In the end, the citezens of each state would vote on abortion much like they vote on the death penalty. My guess is a lot states would be pro choice with a few choosing to be pro-life. This process is normally referred to as ‘demoocracy.’
In this way, much of the ‘heat’ would be alleviated from the debate as the ‘people will have spoken.’ And, that’s the real problem with Roe V Wade...the people do not feel like they’ve had a chance to speak. This causes pent-up frustration and anger.
Now, once the people have spoken, the argument will next evolve into public funding for abortions. As a conservative with libertarian leanings I’m pro-choice but, do not think any public money should be used for abortions.
If Roe V Wade never pased, these issues would have been resolved by the end of the 1970’s but......we have activist courts who make law from the bench.
No, there’s a lot more to the story.

Lots of stupid coming out of the White Hut these days.
Maybe that is what desperation looks like...
Stevens being taken to the Hospital by the Libyans fits the story line about it being a kidnap attempt busted up by the CIA agents on scene. They had him and wanted to keep him alive.
