Posted on 05/14/2013 5:11:49 PM PDT by Nachum
Today at a Department Of Justice press conference Attorney General Eric Holder said he has no problem without letting the Associate Press answer the charges of a leak endangering national security.

They were spying, looking for leads to wbistleblowers pure and simple. Brennen TOLD numerous people including press and past officials the details that were later reported. That is how the story got out. He testified he made the calls.
Jugears is a paranoid narcissist. They need to control the press. Intimidation.and threats keep em in line.
- “Obama-Rigging” America -
Here is the google search link to the leaked story:
CIA thwarts new al-Qaida underwear bomb plot
Same here. Even allowing for typos and bad transcription, I can't make heads or tails of it.
What would it be I wonder?
Yeah a very serious leak that would make BO look really, really bad.
He’s trying to protect Obama from Benghazi fallout with more enticing ideas.
Remember “MY PEOPLE” video from 2 years ago. What did he mean by “MY” people? It’s “we the people”, EVERY AMERICAN CITIZEN.
I smell a rat on the AP story. I think it's made up between AP and the administration to deflect from Benghazi. I also think they intentionally leaked the IRS story to deflect from Benghazi. The Benghazi story has the fuel to not only take down Obama, but also the dem's 2016 candidate, Hillary Clinton. I think the decision was made to saturate the news cycles for weeks and months to come with something that they could manage and to, at all costs, deflect from Benghazi.
Ive read this sentence over and oever and still cant figure out what it means.Me too.
Plus, since Andrew died, the Breitbart sites suck big time. A 30 minute commercial before the video starts, I didn't even wait.
I don't know if that is a quote from Holder or if it was written by a Breitbart writer.
“Holder lies, as does his boss.”
After watching the press conference, I googled “lying facial cues.” I rewatched Holder and noted the following tell tale signs.
1. Looking to the left often if the person is right-handed (he is). Check.
2. Furrowing the brow and lifting eyebrows. Check.
3. Shaking the head as he is affirming something. Check.
4. (And in Holder’s case), Moving his lips. Check.
Absolutely...That also applies to his boss.
And the IRS Scandal and the AP scandal are to draw fire away from the Benghazi scandal.....
What’s frustrating is that people are really missing the point of what happened here. They are defending this as necessary to go after Obama national security leakers. I agree that they shouldn’t be leaking this stuff, but that’s not why DOJ took this action.
They did this because the AP wrote articles unfavorable to them. Articles that disagreed with their statements. This was punishment. And it dried up their sources, who are now afraid to talk to them. It sends a message to the press. Disagree with us and we will make you pay.
The White House sold out that doctor in Pakistan the helped get Osama Bin Laden, but you know, national secrets are very important when it comes to our friends on foreign soil.
And then you have our Ambassador and his staff on foreign soil.
But boy, Obama and company sure are national security sticklers aren’t they.
AP: If you’re buying their excuses, you deserve to wither and die on the vine.
My take is the AP was hot on a story and the White House wanted to know what the reporters knew and who they were talking to.
It was information gathering with the intent of being ready with advance notice of the story to address it.
In other words, find out what the reporters know by finding out who they are talkin to, then see what that person is capable of delivering to the press.
A thwarted terrorist attack.
Welcome to the Obamugabe Regime...a Reich that thinks it will never end.
Those Bin Laden raid leaks that landed that Pakistani doctor in prison were pretty serious too. But that was a long time ago. What difference does it make at this point?
