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.

I want to hear about who was running guns to the MB and Al Qaeda.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Add me to your ping list. This is getting very interesting...
“You should have seen what (Clinton) tried to do to us that night,”
She’s a fascist power hungry pig. I’ll stop there or they might come looking for me.
Speaking of that - a couple of weekends ago I stayed with a woman from Russia and she had the Charm School in her bookshelves that had not read yet. I told her briefly about the story - and how the Russians were in fear of their government before the collapse and her first comment was “like here now”.
Didn't Hussein go to bed just to make sure he made it to Vegas on time? Uh, oh.
“What the hell difference does it make now?!”... (The Americans are all dead now anyway)
Per Hillary of course, the above quote is her idea (not mine by a longshot!)
Sounds like a Jewish Russian. Have had the same conversation with a Jewish Russian.
This should be on front page. This will be the first time a key administration person will publicly accused Hillary of wrongdoing
upon bammy’s order to do so.
He knew it had been choreographed as a simple ambassador-kidnapping ... then things took an unplanned turn.
There’s always 10% that don’t get the word.
On the list, please.
I don’t think she’s Jewish but not certain.
“... And the suggestion that anybody in my team, whether the secretary of state, our U.N. ambassador, anybody on my team would play politics or mislead when we’ve lost four of our own, Governor, is offensive. That’s not what we do. That’s not what I do as president. That’s not what I do as commander in chief.” Obama at the second 2013 Presidential debate.
I think they’ve decided to throw Hillary under the bus. Barry will never be blamed - even though the SOS does exactly what the President tells him or her to do or follows the policy established by the President.
Whitewater scandal Hillary said 99 times, “I do not recall” Wonder if she’s going to use the same tactic. No she’ll blame someone else. Wouldn’t it be nice if Hillary and Obama both told the truth?
Last week was the National day of Prayer. Maybe God’s answering our prayers. If this is as bad as it appears I must remember what God’s word says:
Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice,
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.
Granted, there are a buncha lulu's from this admin.
ANSWER: Jay Carney suggesting that----even though Hillary "signed off" on Benghai security----that does not mean she actually "knew" about it.
Above and beyond stupidity.
Not photoshopped-actual pic.
The Obomba crowd like to shape a narrative to cover their *****.... much like their dumb attempt to blame Benghazi on an Internet video. Now it looks like the Obombas are attempting to convince us that the Tsarnaevs "acted alone"......(waiting w/ bated breath for Susan Rice on the Sunday talk circuit---cackle)
The Obombas would have us believe that Dzhokhar and Tamerlan Tsarnaev thought it all up by themselves while collecting and cashing a blitz of government checks, buying pressure cookers and fireworks----that the bros are self-radicalized terrorists"....
Remember that three friends of jihadist Dzhokhar Tsarnaev were arrested for helping to coverup the jihad bombings (amazing that "innocent" youngsters knew to grab vaseline, knowing it was a bomb component). The arrests followed assurances from numerous govt officials that the Tsarnaev brothers "acted alone".......
Course, I don't want to seem unreasonable....could be the WH's CYA-ing is simply the result of Obomba hanging upside down too long on his Teeter Hang-up---he thinks it's a sex toy (even bought knee-pads for Mrs O).
The very frightening aspect to this whole debacle is that just about ALL the news media in print and tv with very few exceptions promoted the Obama lie that the attack was because of a movie. No qualifications, no questions, no investigation by the media was even remotely suggested to raise any question about the veracity of this claim.
All the left wing pundits on tv flogged this for weeks.
The coordination between the White House and its bought and paid for media is now terrifyingly apparent even for doubters to see.
There is no free press. We have fallen without a shot.
I find it disturbing that Obama may get a pass in all this. It seems everyone is blaming poor widdle Hillary.
Please add my to the list. I have a feeling you are going to be very busy.
