Boom: CBS Sharyl Attkisson tears into Obama Admin over Benghazigate
Twitchy.com ^ | January 23, 2013

CBS investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been one of the few members of the media willing to hold the Obama Administration’s feet to the fire over Benghazigate. Despite Obama et al.’s toxic mixture of silence, prevarication, and obfuscation, Attkisson has doggedly pursued the truth about the September 2012 attacks that left four Americans dead. Today, she spotlighted the list of questions that the Obama Administration has yet to answer:

Did you read her questions? She’s been asking for answers for some time. It may not be getting a lot of publicity, but she’s kept after it.

Hillary will reveal NOTHING!

Benghazi was designed to allow the kidnapped ambassador to be traded for the blind sheik.

The ex-CIA security wasn’t supposed to be there shooting at the would be kidnappers.

Of all the questions Sharyl has, which are not explained by my scenario above?

There was a time when CBS was the gold standard in broadcast news gathering (I know this dates me...)

Yes, they're good questions.

Perhaps I missed it but I didn't notice any tough investigative reporting prior to November - from any major network.

Maybe this individual reporter is sincere in her job but her employer can go p*ss up a rope - CBS as an organization could care less if these questions get answers.

"Who made the decision not to convene the Counterterrorism Security Group (CSG) the night of the Benghazi attacks?"

"Is the Administration revising the applicable Presidential directive? If so, please explain."

Oh, yes. PLEASE will get you...just what you have gotten.
Nothing.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

Perhaps the new fix is to destroy presumptive 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton as she exits State Department for parts unknown. Kicking her wide a$$ out the door.

Team Obama - Biden are good with that.

I’m watching the hearings with HRC on C-SPAN 3 but her constant ‘listening tour’ bobble-heading is darn annoying.

Better late than never. This needs to be covered especially now with the Algeria terror attacks occurring so close to the Libyan border. The same AQ factions were involved in both incidents. We know the administration was asleep at the switch on Bengazi. A key question I’d ask is why they were still asleep allowing the Algeria hostage situation to happen? Where is obama on this? It’s almost as though it never happened.

The Regime is never going to tell the truth on Benghazi, just as they won’t on F & F. Evenutually someone like Sharyl will get to the bottom of it and figure it all out ... probably well after Barry Benghazi is playing with his balls (golf) full time in Hawaii and the Obamanists/Enemedia aren’t in full cover-up mode to protect their darling boy.

That too.
Lapdogs that wander from the Commie map tend to get euthanized.
The left is not too forgiving of their lapdogs when they wander without permission.
