There Is A Circle-The-Wagon Op Around Barack Obama That Nobody Is Going To Penetrate
Fox ^ | 11/14/12 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 11/14/2012 5:58:56 PM PST by Nachum

On his Wednesday radio show, conservative talker Rush Limbaugh warned his listeners not to have high expectations for embattled former CIA Director David Petreaus’ testimony on the Sept. 11, 2012 terror attack in Benghazi. The attack resulted in the deaths of four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, but, according to Limbaugh, if Petreaus says anything differently than what he had said right after the attack, he could be branded a liar.

“If Petraeus goes in there and says anything different than what he said on Sept. 13, do you know the world of hurt that he’s in?” Limbaugh said. “What did he say on Sept. 13 — or whenever the testimony was — he said it was the video. He said it was an out-of-control mob, spontaneous-combustion protest, because of the video. OK, now let’s say that he goes into tomorrow and he, if he doesn’t say exactly what he said to Congress back in September, then he’s going to get the question: ‘Were you lying then, or are you lying now?’”

The question I have is why do the old msm make every effort to “protect” Obama?

Well Limbaugh, you have the microphone and the resources, courtesy of we on the right who've supported you all these years.

How well was Petraeus liked at the CIA? I can’t believe that 0bama steps on everyone / anyone and any group and they still band together to protect him? There will be a crack in the facade sooner or later. Someone will finally decide to put Country ahead of self and talk.

I’ve always wondered why he didn’t have his own investigators looking into everything since the Clinton Admin.

That's kind of a defeatist attitude, Rush. Not like you. We all know this for sure...

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.

Too many “jounralists” have been raised, schooled and trained to pine for the global triumph of Marxism.

Now it is so close, they can taste it.

I don’t know; he did go there to investigate. I’d have to check the timeline but maybe there was an effort to spread the story at high levels and he was repeating what he was told in a briefing. Later, things didn’t add up so he went to check. Now is a good time to come clean, especially if he was lied to in a briefing

I'm with you, however, whether it's Limbaugh, the LEFT, or the politicians, ALL we seem to get is CONSTANT never ending rhetoric and NO ACTION of purpose.

This somewhat OLD ACT is wearing very thin.

Chill out El Rushbo.

We don't actually know what Petraeus said in his previous testimony. It was behind closed doors. It was a Democrat Rat Congressman on the committee who claimed that Petraeus said that the riot was spontaneous.

And BTW, isn't it against the law for the Democrat congressman to release such information.

I just read a news headline that read that the high priced “handlers” and news spinners that “handled” the Bill Clinton/Lewinsky affair have been called in to work their magic for Obama in the Petraeus affair. (Is that correct?)- Where is/was the Broadwell woman’s husband in all this?

Sounds like we all should give up. Rush probably does not want a tax audit. More importantly; it's all about profits and keeping that moral coalition base on board. He knows how to fold em. He seems to always be friends with the insiders and obeys their wishes. Bush. Romney... he should never got behind Romneycare nor brought up the women's issue of their bodies for the loony left to exploit and Ann Coulter being so freaking hateful acting as the face of conservatism. imo. Now, she's toxic as she said Newt was.

Uh, that only works if it can be proven the CIA gave him the right information.

Right now, Petraeus has indicated the admin story line: it was a video protest turned rowdy.

Petraeus will cover for him, because I suspect there is more than just a Broadwell affair here. They have gone over his entire life with a comb.

And Petraeus can’t change his story now that he is a proven liar, as it relates to adultery.

what do you really expect to happen?....

we had our chance with Romney, and we blew it because no one on the right had a clue how massive the fraud would be....

now we sit and wait....

I'll try to avoid supporting the media/hollowood complex...

otherwise, I hope to God that we can maintain the House and get the Senate and more Governorships next time around...

I agree with Rush.. I think we might be better off preparing and working on 2016.. this very minute.. We aren’t going to get anywhere with this guy..Thwart him at every move. Don’t work, don’t pass budgets. screw it...

We are more motivated to get out and vote, in the midterms, so I am hoping we could still keep the House.

I hear you.

But keep in mind, "NO ONE wins ALL the TIME".

Sooner or later Obozo and his henchmen will trip themselves up.

If you recall Watergate occurred, First, then Nixon won re-election, then the investigation revealed his role in leading the coverup and he resigned in disgrace

There's every possibility, if we have a reliable Investigation by the House and Senate, the same may occur to Obozo.

Like I said, it's impossible to WIN all of the time.

“Use the dammed thing !”

That’s another subject. Rush is talking about Washington insiders circling the wagon, and that there’ll be no big break in the story because there’ll be no Deep Throat. Reporters are only as good as their sources.

He can hammer it on the radio all he wand. He could even deduce the real story. But without a leak how will it be confirmed.

The CIA has issued a statement some time ago that they never said anything about a protest over a ‘video.’ But that makes no difference whatsoever. They saw the attack live, heard calls from people on the ground and new both the consulate and annex were under a concerted attack. Are you saying a rescue mission should hinge on who is attacking and why they are attacking? I hope you’re not a police dispatcher in your town.

I am very far from a dispatcher, but thanks!

I think you believe that all this information is public source and given, but it’s not. This is just assembled from gobs of news articles.

Congress doesn’t do such news article assembly. They subpoena people and documents. Documents can be controlled by the Administration (Top Sekrete, heh), and it’s pretty obvious they can control people if you have the right dirt.

So no, it’s not “obvious” to anyone who views it from the light of a official panel of Congressman that it was anything more than a protest gone bad. They can only pronounce judgement on what official documentation they get.

If the news leaks are not adequate to power the proper discovery process, they will never see the proper documents, and you can sure bet Petraeus is not going to step out of line.

To use your example, the news leaks are the “dispatcher” and Congress is the police. Congress can’t visualize the entire episode just from the 911 call. There has to be more *real* evidence, which I can guarantee won’t be provided by Petraeus or the administration.

This is another dead end. I don’t like the Administration, but I will say this: they have political game that can’t be easily reckoned with.

And finally, now that Mr. Petraeus is a citizen, he is no longer entitled to access to the very documents that he produced during his personal discovery mission. The right leaks to the right lawmakers and they will be hounding him on every recollection error vs. the verbatim report.

It’s like Rush said: if you think something is going to come of this, you have your hopes set way too high.

And if I or Rush is wrong, then I will be pleasantly surprised and happy about it. I suspect the chance of that happening is less than hitting the PowerBall lottery.

I don't know what you're babbling about but three facts are known and nothing can change them...

Fact One:

1) Only the POTUS can authorize a CBA (cross border authority) command for a rescue mission in a foreign nation.

Plus Fact Two:

2) No rescue mission was attempted.

Equals Fact Three:

3) 0bama turned his back on 41 State Dept. and CIA employees refusing to issue a CBA command and went to bed so he could go to Las Vegas the next day.

That is part of scandal #3.

All of which are connected of course. I would also say he is still trying to use the 'video' as a coverup given his angry tirade about Susan Rice today.

Are you just being obtuse for no reason? I have explained #1.

Let’s try again since you are evidently blinded by your own intellect.

A President must know that there is a problem, to trigger a action. This is where the admin is playing fast and loose, and the reason there will be no repercussions to the President.

Petraeus is discredited, now a proven liar and cheat, and he and Allen were probably the only 2 feds with clarity in the matter, who may have spoken out, if they weren’t facing court marshals over not keeping their man parts out of places they were not suppose to be.

Ie, any soul who can or would note the President’s actual knowledge and response are now either discredited or would never speak against the President in the first place.

The recordings of requests for help, etc. are all irrelevant if they can’t be proven to ever have been heard by the President when rescue would have been relevant. Sure some minions might go down, but the President will be legally as clean as a Preacher’s sheets.

You're either obtuse or uninformed.

0bama was notified immediately and automatically when the Benghazi consulate triggered the "Imminent Danger Notification System" alert. He did nothing.

Judge Jeanine Investigates Benghazi Gate Part 4 - 10/20/2012 video 6:53
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (U.S. Army ret.), former CIA Station Chief Gary Berntsen and former CIA operative Mike Baker

They confirm everything Col. Hunt said about automatic notifications to the WH and add more details.

Howie Carr interview with Col. Hunt On The Newest Libyan Revelations audio 28:37

0bama knew exactly what was happening because he watched and heard it all in real-time. They had real-time onsite video, secured e-mail and were speaking with personnel at both compounds over at least two lines of radio transmission and cell phones. There were two drones overhead. All of that was live-streaming to the entire DoD-DC network of sit-rooms around the world including the White House.
