Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC): 'The Dam's About to Break on Benghazi'
CNS News ^ | May 7, 2013 | Susan Jones

Posted on 05/07/2013 4:53:01 PM PDT by real_patriotic_american

(CNSNews.com) - "The dam's about to break on Benghazi," Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) told Fox News's Greta Van Susteren on Monday night. He said this week's testimony from State Department whistleblowers is "going to make you mad." He's also urging other witnesses to come forward.

Graham was among the first Republicans to speak to Greg Hicks, the number two diplomat in Libya when Benghazi was attacked.

Hicks will tell the House Oversight and Government Affairs Committee on Wednesday that everyone in Libya knew it was a terror attack from the very beginning, even though the Obama White House -- two months before the presidential election -- kept blaming a spontaneous protest arising from an obscure anti-Muslim video.....

And here I had hopes it would. But if Linseed says it, it almost certainly won’t. I’d rather have a stereotypical Southern “Jack S. Fogbound” in that senate seat than this “metrosexual” marshmallow.

I remember a few years back when Hillary Clinton to Lindsey Graham to the Exit Glacier near Seward, Alaska on the Pacific Coast and told him it was ANWR which is over 1,000 miles away in the north east corner of the state. It was enough to turn him against drilling for our own self preservation.

If look at the threads about Benghazi the night it happened, Freepers had most of the story figured out.

It has only taken eight months for the rest of the world to catch up.

Yep Graham and McCain are interested in staying out front on this to head off their well deserved blame. If they had opposed getting involved in the Libyan mess to begin with it wouldn’t have happened.

Now they’re looking for a fight in Syria.

What’s happening in Syria right now is a great benefit to the U.S. It’s Russia’s, Iran’s, and Saudi Arabia’s problem now. Left them be distracted by it. The U.S. should keep out and let those countries suffer for it.

Exactly and ... the Repubs will look like complete fools. Hitlery will come out of this like a champ and the “War on Women” crowd will be screaming from the roof tops about the “evil republicans!”

This is a lose-lose situation for Repubs because the majority of “Americans” don't care ... period.

True,cc, a disaster from the getgo.

But Congress did not demand its due under the War Powers Act to constrain this mess.

And there is no doubt in my mind that Zippy was transferring captured Libyan arms to the Syrian rebels, who are part and parcel of Al Qaeda.

That means we were officially, under Presidential directive, allies with terrorists.

But there is another reason why the dogs did not bark that night in DC. They were not supposed to.

And that is what must ultimately bring Zippy, Hillary, Panetta, Dempsey, Biden and Petraeus down.

Something was meant to happen that did not go according to plan, and that plan was why no one showed even the slightest concern during those seven hours for the safety of 36 Americans engaged in the fight of their lives.

The Administration preferred that all those involved moving anti-aircraft weapons from Benghazi to Al Qaeda in Syria were DEAD.

Dead men tell no tales of treason.

Why no aircover? Al Qaeda in Lybia was supplied MANPADS by us. We would have been shot down with the weapons we gave to terrorists.

You’ve heard of the USS Liberty incident?

We needed the same zealousness in our Congress then to expose the culprit in those 34 KIAs and 171 crew members in 1967, just as we find in 2013 because of 4 deaths at a USA Embassy in Benghazi.

We need to officially investigate and find the answer to both to show major respect to those in the US Military who served the USA and then were killed and deaths covered-up. For the sake of our military I refuse to accept coverups by corrupt beholden politicians.

Yes, and it was the former colonel (Wood?) and Eric Nordstrom who brought this put on 10/10/12, that up to 20,000 MANPADS were missing that were known to be in Libya.

And Mr. Nordstrom is one of the three “whistleblowers” set totestify tomorrw.

May God bless him and keep him and his family—he is a patriot.

See tagline for further enlightenment.

As far as I’m concerned, the protests in Cairo and elsewhere were PURPOSELY planned by the Muslim Brotherhood in coordination with the CIA to provide cover for the operation later that night in Benghazi. That is why they stuck to the video story even when it was not working a they planned.

Graham mostly represents himself and the Russian commie immigrants first, and USA citizenry second. For the most part (except for his anti gun control stance) he has never represented my interests of an American for America.

Wish I could believe ya, Lindsey, but too many of the American people are too busy watching their president on American Idol. Winning the contest just for being him. And the lamestream media will just keep yawning at this.

You and your buddy, nickcarraway, haven’t a clue what you’re talking about.

In South Carolina, Graham is in serious trouble. He’s dropped from 71% voter approval down to 54%. We’ve been working on that for three months.

Here’s a recommendation from me to you: crawl back under your rock and shutup.

Has anyone wondered - or mentioned -that the whole emphasis is on who changed the talking points, who ordered the stand down etc - but NO ONE is asking:”WHAT were they trying to cover up? “WHAT were they doing in that compound? Were they running the Qaddafi guns to the tallies through Turkey? WHY was the Turkish diplomat in the Benghazi compound that day, meeting with Stevens?”

THESE are the things we need to know -

And it looks like they are ALL - both sides - going to cover this up.

Assigning blame for the changed talking points and who ordered the stand down seems to be the trade off. Don't question/investigate what we were actually doing there - just do a smoke and mirrors on the surface. The gullible public won't look any further.

Are we being hoodwinked to accept the biggest cover up of all? Time to crash the investigators team with emails - and get some trusted media on it.

We know somebody(Hillary?) changed the talking points and we know that somebody (the CIC) ordered the stand down. Both things are very bad. All the while we don't have any evidence of some nefarious operation.

So why would we want to switch attention away from the definite bad things that Hillary and Obama did and switch focus to something that we have no existing evidence.

I've been listening to Hugh Hewitt do his pre-hearing show. He talked to many of the Rep. reps who will be asking questions tomorrow. His last question to Trey Gowdy of S.C. was will anything come out tomorrow that will put Benghazi on the level that Watergate rose to after the news about the White House recordings emerged. Gowdy said in effect, "you betcha!"

For it to have any similarity to Watergate the MSM has to go for the Benghazi jugular. It ain’t gonna happen. Most folks don’t know what Benghazi is and MSM has not told them to care. So they don’t.

Stevens met with a Turkish attaché 45 minutes before the attack commenced.

I believe that .stevens did not know he was to be kidnapped and held for ransom. the ransom was to be the release of the Blind Sheikh to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Zippy would have been a hero to the Muslim world and a hero for the reelection.

That was what was supposed to happen. But Zippy got double crossed and Stevens was killed, and analy raped to send a message. the attack against the Benghazi consulate and the CIA facility was not the work of amateurs.

Thirty six .americans were in danger. four died.

and no one in DC lifted a finger to help.

none of that makes sense unless the script was NOT followed that everyone expected to be followed.

The video was Plan B when it dawned on DC that an aw sh@t situation had developed.

the video only had 1,000 hits but it enflamed millions in 22 countries.

sure it did.

I surmised that from the beginning but had forgotten it. I think that is most likely because there had been a big noise from the ME and from our own lefties to spring the BS in the time up to Benghazi. The noise hushed with Benghazi.
