Skip to comments.Clinton sought end-run around counter-terrorism bureau on night of Benghazi attack, witness will say
Posted on 05/05/2013 6:04:51 PM PDT by servo1969
On the night of Sept. 11, as the Obama administration scrambled to respond to the Benghazi terror attacks, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a key aide effectively tried to cut the department's own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making, according to a "whistle-blower" witness from that bureau who will soon testify to the charge before Congress, Fox News has learned.
That witness is Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for operations in the agencys counterterrorism bureau. Sources tell Fox News Thompson will level the allegation against Clinton during testimony on Wednesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.
Fox News has also learned that another official from the counterterrorism bureau -- independently of Thompson -- voiced the same complaint about Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy to trusted national security colleagues back in October.

What does this mean, “Hillary does end around”?
I don’t know why it’s bad...
i’ll believe it when i see it. lets hope they’re not flying in his brother from the old country
Hillary had her chance to testify under oath. She may not be invited back. Not that being under oath means anything special to her.
Free the Benghazi 30!!!!!
The Obama-Christie dalliance is now coming into clearer focus.
They made a deal. Christie agreed to throw Romney under the bus and seal the deal for Obama’s reelection. In return Obama agreed to put and end to Hillary’s chances(and Biden’s by extension, no one in the administration will look good once this is all finished with).
Christie easily beats the dems’ 2nd and 3rd tier of either Patrick/Warner/O’Malley/Gillibrand/Cuomo/etc...
Maybe I’m just too cynical
In exchange for Obama handing the WH to Christie, Christie also agrees to keep Obamacare in place.
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: My sources tell me Obama was in the room watching Benghazi attack video 10-27-2012
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer said tonight that his sources tell him that Obama was one of the people in the room watching the Benghazi attack go down and both he and Col. David Hunt agree it would have taken an order by the president to intervene. Further, Col. Hunt said that we were only 20 min away by jet and a couple of hours away by AC-130 gunships and special forces, and the decision not to intervene had to be political.
This is what I’ve been waiting, hoping, and praying for!! I hope to God these witnesses are being carefully guarded, so nothing happens to them. I also predict right now that WHEN and IF they do actually get to testify, Her Horribleness will Deny, Deny, DENY.
I have a hard time with not gloating IF our enemy within gets what they deserve—I’ll work on my shortcoming.
In the meantime, I’ll go with this scripture:
King James Version (KJV)
144 Blessed be the Lord my strength which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:
(Lord, please protect the whistleblowers and their families during this time-Issa’s as well-and teach them to FIGHT.)
Please add me to your ping list.
I will wait until Thursday.
Then we will see.
I try never to miss a word on this subject, would love to be on ping list, and thank you for all you do to fight the good fight!
She did contract the “diplomatic illness” after the attack. “I don’t recall” is not out of the question.
It’s irrelevant at this point. It wa covered up by the media and Obama was reelected. That’s why this happened. Nothing more, nothing less.
Want to make a statement? Shut down the Slimes, Compost and network news for no longer being the guardian of the people. Show up on Matthews front lawn with pitchforks and torches, demanding his skin.
If you miss anything, click the link on any of my pings or on my profile page. Everything about Benghazi is there from the jump...starting with hour one.
Hillary had a "head injury" and a "blood clot in the brain" right around New Years. So I'm betting yes, "I do not recall" will be heard a lot, with the Press running an all out assault on any Republican who dares to ask a back up question, or hint that she is lying.
BOOM! Emails Show Obama Knew Islamic Group Took Credit for Benghazi Slaughter 2 HOURS INTO ATTACK
And this woman wants to be President? I guess she thinks she’d be just as good as Obama, and she’s probably right.
