Hillary Clinton on State Dept. budget for FY 2012.

FY 2012 Budget Request March 10, 2011

The second part of our request funds the extraordinary, temporary portion of our war effort the same way the Pentagon’s request is funded: in a separate Overseas Contingency Operations account known as OCO. Instead of covering war expenses through supplemental appropriations, we are now taking a more transparent approach that fully reflects the integrated civilian-military efforts. Our share of the President’s $126 billion request for exceptional wartime costs is $8.7 billion. So all told, we have a $47 billion operational account and an $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations account.

(snip)

But let me just quickly walk you through this, because on this issue of our $8.7 billion Overseas Contingency Operations, we have the strongest support from Secretary Gates, from Admiral Mullen. And next week – I was speaking with General Petraeus last night. He will be here on the Hill strongly supporting the civilian effort that goes hand-in-hand with what he is doing so heroically in Afghanistan. So we are funding vital civilian missions in Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Iraq with this $8.7 billion.

Is the POTUS not in communication with the WH counsel? Inquiring minds want to know.

Regarding Benghazi, he lied the other day when he claimed to have always said it was terrorism. If he lied about something so easy to disprove, he must be lying about everything else.

Wonder if the press will ask mr. Turkey why didnt he turn the Benghazi terrorist over to the US.

Exactly!! Considering Am Stevens met with the Turkish Ambassador the day of the attack.

The IG report took months to compile. Before it is released to the public, the IG must brief the Secretary of Treasury on the results, especially if there a damaging information about to be released.

I find it incredible that the Treasury Secretary did not brief the WH sometime much earlier--at least weeks and perhaps months. I say that advisedly having worked in the federal government for 36 years and being very familiar with the IG process.

The Reps should jump on this statement during the hearings.

State Dept. Rules of Engagement Kept Marines out of Tripoli, Benghazi in Libya

Captain Kendra Motz, Marine Corps spokesman, told Breitbart News on Friday that she wasn't aware that the Marine Corps had issued a formal statement, but that the information included in the Powerline report was correct.

"The Marine Corps does not have any Marines stationed at diplomatic installations in Libya."

When asked if she knew of the existence of the document outlining the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, she stated:

"I don't, and even if I did I couldn't disclose it to you because it puts people at risk."

The 50 Marines that were rushed to Libya after the murder of Ambassador Stevens are not permanently stationed at any diplomatic installation in Libya.

Carefully worded.......”I didn’t know anything about the IG report before it was released.” Know one knew at the WH, I certainly didnt know anything until the IG report was leaked.

The political appointee lawyers at Treasury and IRS would have been in communication with the WH lawyers and probably Obama campaign. The kenyan knew this was about to drop.
