But I do know one thing: the order to "stand down" could ONLY have come from POTUS.
I played golf a few weeks back with a connected Army officer who told me there is a LOT of hushed chatter among senior Army brass about this. It's a KNOWN secret in DC, people in the Pentagon and Congress that ONLY POTUS could give the order to stand down......thus, senior military leaders are both incensed and terrified (scared that those in the know could be sacked--and their precious pensions along with them--if they even think about leaking the goods on Obama).
Discovering who gave the talking points to Susan Rice is a straw man; find out who gave the stand down order.....you'll find your smoking gun and what Obama is so terrified of.
Benghazi didn't have a consulate; diplomatic mission, yes; consulate, no.
Exactly. The “who” gave the orders in all these scandals is Obama himself. If it was anyone other than Obama, we would have the names by now. The fact that no one will say leads to the conclusion that it was him. I guess they are all scared to death which is so wrong.
The Benghazi thing was and is a real threat and impeachable. What we are seeing now is the classic lawyer technique of muddying the waters with scandal after scandal so visibility on everything scandalous is zero. In “normal” times the MS wouldn’t let any admin get away with this, but the MSM is actually helping the admin. Remember ALL of our rulers are, deep down, just 2 bit lawyers...
The real scandal and the truth the administration is hiding is the so called “arab spring”.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
Think we are allowed to have multiple scandals. We’ve seen it this way before and it was handled.
Impeachment is merely fact finding and a recommendation by the House of Representatives. The Senate may then vote to retain or remove the President. It is akin to the procedures some organizations have for removing an employee. That is how people should view impeachment. It’s a process to see whether an employee of the US taxpayers should be removed.
Benghazi is a different story. It’s not just about removing an employee. It is way more serious than that. Benghazi leads to questioning our involvement in the overthrow of the government of Libya. Why did Hillary and Obama use American taxpayer funded personnel, equipment and money to overthrow the government of Libya? Have Hillary and Obama ever shown any previous care and concern for the people of Libya? No. But there are a lot of people interested in Qadaffi’s money and the oil in Libya. Hillary and Obama are standing here with their asses hanging out over Libya. What they’ve done doesn’t just get you fired, it gets you in front of a tribunal. That’s why Benghazi is so dangerous to them. These other issues can get you fired. Benghazi can get them life in prison or hung. The Democrats will do anything to get rid of Benghazi.
And weren’t one (or more) of these “new” scandals leaked or otherwise revealed by the agencies themselves?
Such a release doesn’t equal a “devastating revelation” so much as a scripted and cynical ploy to manipulate the news.
We’re being played here, folks.
Where are the rest of those Benghazi whistleblowers, anyway?
The scandal dump isn’t so much a smokescreen as a ruse to get people to believe a lie by repeating it over and over again like they did with the “spontaneous” lie.
The Obama adm. repeated “spontaneous” over and over again so people would repeat over and over again the lie that there was no connection to the attack in Libya and the video protest in Egypt.
The truth is the protest in Egypt was planned in order to create the “spontaneous” lie. It was the Obama adm. that planned the attack in Libya and the “spontaneous” lie was a cover story. Those terrorist are so in tune with the news don’t you know, they can pick up on a news story and plan a terrorist attack in just a few minutes, nothing was planned months in advance, it was spontaneous.
The same thing is happening with the NSA phone data scandal.
You now have all of these people out here, republicans and democrats, repeating over and over and over again “it’s necessary to fight terrorism”.
It’s a ruse to make people believe Obama is really trying to fight terrorism when he’s not he’s actually collaborating with the terrorist as shown with Benghazi.
The attempted car bombing in NYC May 1, 2010, and the planned subway bombing in 2009 (the one they are now trying to claim was stopped because of NSA data gathering) are perfect examples of where the Obama adm. orchestrated news stories prior to the attacks.
Thus the need for the “spontaneous” lie that the terrorist are picking up on the news and planning attacks around the news instead of the news being orchestrated for the attacks.
Among the many disturbing and disgusting things about this - this one is close to the top. Honor and integrity for sale.
Get the dogs chasing their tails and the tails of so many others that they pass right by the obvious.
Watergate involved ZERO deaths but FIFTY people indicted or in prison.
It isn’t so much a smokescreen as it is the greatest country on earth burning to the ground.
I have two fundamental questions that need to be answered and the answers should not be classified.
1. What were the results of Steven’s autopsy? Make whoever performed the autopsy testify in public under oath.
2. What were the names of the 30 or so personnel (some of whom were wounded) who were trapped in Benghazi? Who is preventing them from being known and testifying and why?
Suppose it was proven that Obama gave the stand down order?
Since that is clearly one of his Constitutional prerogatives, what do you think Congress would do about it?
Solely from the perspective of (legally and Constitutionally) removing Obama from office, I don’t see that Benghazi can accomplish the job.
And I bet we find out that Obama was PARTYING with Jay Z or some other Gansta that night of Benghazi!! Betcha....anyone??
Those who wish to bring down Obama ahould get Snowden on the case. With the right backing, he can ferret out the truth about Obama, Clinton, Casey, Hamm, etc. by dissecting their phone calls during the Benghazi incident.
Who would like to be the highest bidder on Snowden’s brain?
I’m guessing the Chinese.
