With the crap-weasels in the government, is just doesn’t matter. No one is accountable and the unjust are ruling over the just.
Not even a few lines to tease our interest?
So far it has all been ignored by the powers that be, and it appears it will continue!!!
Is there hope of truth being known?
Where do they find the people necessary to serve on it?
Anybody here seen Speaker Boehner?
If you do see him, tell him that he has some Articles of Impeachment on Obama to submit before the weekend.
( It is almost impossible to get Boehner to do the work that the US Constitution requires him to do! )
The failures in leadership relating to Benghazi were not limited to the State Department. The tenure ofthe Chairman ofthe Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Martin Dempsey, has been marked by what we view as significant deficiencies in command. From Syria to Benghazi, there has been either a profound inability or clear unwillingness to identify and prevent problems before they arise. Given the known operating environment in Benghazi, much less North Africa, a strong military leader would have ensured there was a viable plan in place to rescue Americans should the need arise."
Yesterday, we found out that our representatives asked the then commander of AFRICOM, General Ham, why he didn’t order attack aircraft to Libya. He responded that in his military opinion, attack aircraft weren’t exactly what they needed at Benghazi. Our great representatives then failed to ask the obvious follow-up question, “What did you send then, General Ham?” How can you miss that follow-up question?
” Not even a few lines to tease our interest? “
no sir , strictly intel ;^)
With all due respect,the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?Hillary Clinton
Down goes Dempsey. Another dummy who thought he could negotiate with Democrats.
This is after the initial attack on the Compound but before escaping to the Annex.
Those in the White House Situation Room watched the events in real time from 11:10 when the drone arrive.
"Handle It" was what Obama said when notified, went back to bed to rest up for his campaign trip the next day.
what a decisive commander in chief....
thanks for the link. I may take a stab at reading it, I like fiction.
I see. After informing them of the need, it's Dempsey's fault that he didn't get Zero and Hillary to issue the orders to protect the consulate. Perhaps a "strong military leader" (you know, the very people Zero and Hillary despise) would have grabbed their hands and moved their pens for them.
I don’t watch anything anymore. Every time I do I wind up screaming at the tv because they let people make statements and never ask the follow up question that to me is so frikken obvious.
I think it means a strong military leader would have responded to any and ALL input regarding the atmosphere, made the attempt to utilize the chain of command, but remain in contact with the operatives and ordered, on the spot, retalitory action
We do not have a majority in the Senate thus Boehner's hands are tied for getting impeachment. I do not know how long this rule has stood. I do know we attempted to impeach Bill Clinton. We saw how recently the Republicans/conservatives successfully were labeled as causing the government "shut down" a few weeks ago. Which was not true.
So with the medias against truth we are not doing very well.
Totally untrue. The courts have nothing to do with impeachment other than the Chief Justice presiding over the trial in the Senate. Impeachment is a political process, not a legal process. The House brings charges by a majority vote, which is the actual act of impeachment. The Senate holds the trial, and it takes a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict and remove.
Where do you come up with this stuff?
A general does not have cross-border authority. Only the POTUS does.
So there you are, sitting at your desk with a phone and a fire starts in the room, but you’re told to stay off of the phone .....
