First State Department Benghazi photos released

By SHARYL ATTKISSON / CBS NEWS/ June 20, 2013, 4:51 PM

After being sued under Freedom of Information (FOIA) law, the State Department released its first photos Thursday showing the aftermath of the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on Benghazi.

Why the Benghazi controversy is "absolutely not" over According to the watchdog group Judicial Watch, which filed the lawsuit against the government, the seven photos "seem to depict portions of the so-called 'Special Mission Compound' in Benghazi, including: what appears to be a burned and ransacked building; at least two burned vehicles; and Arabic graffiti with militant Islamist slogans."

On their face, the photos seem to provide no great revelations. Nonetheless, the images are the first ones provided by the State Department under FOIA and only after Judicial Watch filed a lawsuit. It's unclear why the State Department previously withheld the images from public disclosure.......

Simple: the staffer that photoshops all the pix was on vacation. Or maybe administrative leave with pay. I forget which.

Needs to stay away from parks as well and no air plane flights would be good.

Be nice if Sharyl Attkisson could make cookies for the IRS SWAT team when they raid her home early tomorrow morning.

Yup !
Watch your six !

“After we win this election, it’s our turn. Payback time.
Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget.
The ones who helped us will be rewarded,
the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.” —Valerie Jarrett

Valerie Jarrett is Zippy’s zampolit
Look at the biography of one Lev Mehklis to see how much damage a zampolit can do .
Ever wonder why Valeerie Jarrett has as large a security detail as the president ??

The SD needed time to decide which photos to omit from their release. Probably the ones that made reference to Al Qaeda, or the photos of Stevens’ cables to Hillary.

It only took 9 months to get the photos released !

The State Dept. stated within days of the attack ,that they could observe in ‘ almost real time’.
It takes a lawsuit for the administration to comply with release ?
Let that be a lesson in civics !!

Obviously it was because Barack Hussein Obama had a reelection to win.

Remember how the Left was apoplectic that the Abu Ghraib pic absolutely had to be released?

Benghazi Images

These images are utterly worthless. I would have posted them, but they are almost not worth even looking at.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
