Skip to comments.Clinton sought end-run around counter-terrorism bureau on night of Benghazi attack, witness will say

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.

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.

And this woman wants to be President? I guess she thinks shed be just as
good bad as Obama, and shes probably right.
If Hillary goes down, she is going to make sure to take Obama down with her. Clinton’s won’t allow him to escape
Maybe retired General Ham should be called as a technical witness in the Congressional Hearings on Benghazi-Gate.
I would like to hear what retired General Ham has to say about Benghazi -- even if it is his personal opinion...
You know... so what? No matter what these hearings reveal, the Rancid media will either ignore it or lie about it. End result: zero.
You’ve got a great home page! Please add me to your Benghazi ping list.
Early in 2012....there was an article from a big newspaper over how most of the State Department mission/operation, was run from inside of the White House, and how Hillary was mostly there to just travel around....make speeches...and do interviews...nothing else.
I would speculate that when something big finally happened. Hillary assumed the same crew in the WH running normal day-to-day operations....would continue ordering folks around. Apparently, they just sat there and she (without any real management or executive experience)....just crumbled.
If you read her resume....she has zero experience at any organizational management situation. You got exactly what you asked for. Just a mouth-piece, and nothing else.
The obama regime was who was running the guns. And because I am aware of the media worship of both hillary and obama,and hate Republicans and Conservatives I am very wary and leery of their sudden “interest” in their wanting to learn the facts about the Ben Gazi[sp?]attack. They are getting ready to either spring or bait a trap for the Republicans and Conservatives.
