Did CIA's Mike Morell Lie About Benghazi For Obama?
Investor's Business Daily ^ | March 1, 2014 | IBD EDITORIALS

Posted on 03/01/2014 5:51:29 PM PST by raptor22

Benghazi: Former CIA acting Director Mike Morell might be recalled for testimony to determine if he misled Congress and doctored the White House response to a terrorist attack to ensure President Obama's re-election.

The administration's tangled web of Benghazi lies might be unraveling some more. House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers, R-Mich., has told Fox News that Morell, a former deputy director and twice acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency, will likely be recalled to testify.

The recall comes after new charges surfaced that Morell misled Congress about what he knew regarding the 2012 Benghazi attack and when he knew it. There are also questions about his role in altering the talking points about the attack on our diplomatic mission to benefit Obama's re-election campaign and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential run.

On Thursday, three senators who met with Morell and Susan Rice in late 2012 called for the former U.N. ambassador to testify before Congress as well.

Rice, now national security adviser, appeared on five Sunday talk shows five days after the attack, blaming it on protests. She recently reiterated that the talking points were based on the best-available intelligence.

We knew that was not true, and we now know Morell knew it was not true. As Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., has noted, ample intelligence on the night of, and in the days after, the attack indicated there was no protest.

I predict he’ll pull a “Lerner” and take the fifth. Never mind that he’s already talked. So did Lerner.

Well if he did, he probably told the “least untruthful” lie about the situation .... that’s the administration’s talking points policy.

Many times IBD editorials don’t list an author. In those cases, I put “The Editors” in that line.

That’s probably why he’s announced plans to be out of the country for almost the next 2 months, inflicting his presence on places like Mexico and Poland.

Why did Hillary and Obama use American taxpayer provided funds, equipment, personnel and facilities to overthrow the government of Libya?

So far, only Canada and the UK are the only ones with plausible step-by-step explanations. Fox News documented the time frame well.

If Congress can prove Morrell lied, can they do anything about it? Do they have to refer charges to the DOJ, where Eric Holder will do nothing?

Question should be,
Does anyone in this administration EVER tell the truth?
Just look at the maggot Jay Carney the ass clown.
And as for the head LIAR obammy? What a disgraceful turd.

I hope so. I recall the way they used to protest the harmless and well-meaning Bush, but of course, that was because the left got its international goons out. I don’t know if they’ll do the same for Herr Obama.

A witness under oath before a congressional committee who willfully gives false testimony is subject to prosecution for perjury under 18 U.S.C. § 1621.

Under 18 U.S.C. § 1001, false statements by a person in “any investigation or review, conducted pursuant to the authority of any committee, subcommittee, commission or office of the Congress, consistent with applicable rules of the House and Senate” are punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 or imprisonment for not more than five years, or both.

For starters.
