Lawmakers hearing from top CIA official on Benghazi, amid questions about ex-director’s role
Fox News ^ | April 1 , 2014

Posted on 04/01/2014 9:00:08 AM PDT by don-o

The CIA's top officer on the ground in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terror attack will appear before a House panel for the first time Tuesday afternoon -- to deliver what could be critical closed-door testimony, ahead of ex-CIA Director Michael Morell's scheduled appearance on Wednesday.

Two congressional sources confirmed to Fox News that the CIA chief of station will appear before a House intelligence subcommittee. His perspective was long-sought by lawmakers, and the timing is critical -- coming before Morell's first-ever public testimony Wednesday about his role, and that of the administration, in the flawed "talking points" which blamed a protest.

When Hillary told her first public lie about the attack (you may remember the Andrews AFB event), my wife commented that SecState looked very uncomfortable - as if she knew she was telling a lie that even SHE wasn’t comfortable with.

Ah another closed door meeting where the voters are to stupid to understand the questions and the answers.

This is just another total waste of money and time, I suppose only the elected are able to tell what is truth and what is a lie, gee we do not want the tax payers to really learn the truth. If the voters were there how would we be able to cover our as*es and protect our buddies.

The results of this closed door meeting will be nothing, nada, zero with the standard reply, “No Comment” or “It’s Classified” just a nice way of saying it’s none of your business besides your to stupid to understand.

Since when has that psycho skank Hillary ever been uncomfortable telling a lie particularly one she has made up?

Democrats don't think we're stupid... (they think of their own voters, not us).

I suspect Democrats are worried we'll do a 'Buckhead/danrather' on them and we'll debunk their newest lies... that's why it's 'closed doors'... doesn't take a lot to fool our 'public servants'...

I’m not sure that she was in the loop when the lie was made up - or if she was sure she could get away with it. That could account for her expression as she tried to tell an unfamiliar lie.

Benghazi was Hillary’s operation start to finish.

That’s why the jug eared clown was nowhere to be found when it all came down.

Hillary’s the one that concocted the lies.

I understand her incompetence, based on total lack of experience, but I don't think she's stupid. But what was the motivation for the op in the first place? We could go down the route of "the ambassador knew too much about arms transfers to AQ's Libyan Branch", but even that would have the president's fingerprints all over it.

Maybe I'm over-thinking this after living too many years in the D.C. area and looking for at least some sort of power play logic in everyone's moves.

“But what was the motivation for the op in the first place?”

Simple.

The “spontaneous” lie.

There an al Qaida document recovered in Afghanistan.

It’s a letter from Osama bin Laden to Mullah Omar.

It was listed as doc# AFGP-2002-600321 in what was the CTC at West Point Harmony Database.

That doc is as close to the terrorist playbook as anyone outside of the intel community is likely to get their hands on.

It’s not the playbook for the terrorist overseas but the playbook for the people in this country the terrorist are working for.

The playbook for the people with the objective. The people responsible for making the “PREPARATIONS” for the terrorist attacks and following up after the attacks to achieve the objective of the attack.

The objective of the attack in Benghazi was to make it appear as if there is no “PREPARATIONS” for the attack, they are spontaneous.

It’s a little more complicated, but that is basically what the objective of the attack in Benghazi was about.

A CYA for Hillary’s collaborating with the terrorist and orchestrating the “PREPARATIONS” for the terrorist attacks.

About 30 years ago, Pat Moynihan said the CIA should be abolished. I thought he was insane. And, in those days, I may have been right. But, the CIA has done way more harm than good for a couple of decades, at least. It’s just the President’s yes men. Yet another bureaucracy corrupted. Except, when the CIA screws up, people die.

The CIA is most assuredly NOT "the President's yes men". As demonstrated by the Valerie Plame Affair, the CIA acts as "yes men" only for Democrat Presidents.

This represents yet one more systemic problem with the federal government -- the bureaucracy salutes one party...and works to undermine the other.
