If democrats want to know why we’re so “obsessed” with Benghazi, just remember Susan Rice and her incredible lie about the video, and then Candy Crowley’s defense of Obama when Romney questioned this lie.

Democrats: Lying their way to victory, 2012. That Americans died, well, that is just a casualty of victory.

Candy Crowley’s defense of Obama when Romney questioned this lie.

I saw the video recently, and it's obvious that they were acting in concert. Obama told her to "read what it says!"

How would she know what he was referring to?

The media cover-up is sickening. The truth must be exposed.

Under the unvetted, undocumented Obama, every single felon,
criminal illegal, terrorist (even the Cole bombers),
have gotten a better help, better care, and better
future — using US Taxpayer money — than US veterans.

This ALONE deserves impeachment IMMEDIATELY.

Where is, and why is, the EXEMPT Congress hiding on this?

Morning AB, All....

Not much happening this week.

Well if you consider that my daughter kicked out her a**hole husband finally; got a PFA against him.

No need for details....he has not had a driver’s license in seven years-lost to drunk driving, never bothered to get it back. Daughter drives him everywhere.

He does not work and has (HAD) a wonderful life where he could sleep all day, drink all night and tell me to shove my Jeep up my ass.

But that’s just me and NO MEN.....I have banned all the men from my life but, alas, I have began going to church on Saturday, don’t tell anybody.

I can’t wait till the Benghazi hearings...end of June I am to understand. I shall be live-blogging them every day.

Thank you AB for doing this thread so dependably; it means a lot to me.

Oh, awful son-in-law threatened to kill ME as I am the cause of all their troubles, never mind his not working, driving, drinking and abuse.

But he’s gone and daughter, typical mistreated female that finally got the last straw (he made granddaughter stand in corner for crying because she was so upset at her parents’ fighting) and kicked him to the curb.

The man has nothing....that house I bought my daughter is MY name and HERS, that was not an accident.

Anyway, this VA thing, lookit, it’s bad enough but they are hiding crucifixes behind curtains and telling what Christmas Carols to sing? This as veterans die?

Eliminate that bloated bureaucracy and send the vets through a private system.

The awkward hug threads deserves from notice. It was awkward, weird, eerie, strange, threatening. Carney's facial expressions and body language seem to tell conflicting stories, as does Obama's:

Then, we have Hillary Clinton getting a jump on the Benghazi issue by, of all things, claiming she is the victim:

It looks like FNS will be tackling the VA scandal, while MTP and TW punt and go for the distraction.

The only thing that really pisses me off is the fact that the driveby media still has her on as a guest. We all get mad to see McCain, Graham, Chuck U and the other perennials on week after week—they suck up all the oxygen for other guests...

But she went on their shows and deliberately lied. How can they in good conscience ever have her back again—at least without making those past lies an issue this morning!

But you know they won't. Little Georgia and Fat Candy will just smile and act like it never even happened because, hey, it's all about the Leftist agenda, right?

Obama told her to "read what it says!"

IIRC, he also told Crowley to 'get the transcript'. That would seem to suggest that they [Team Obama and Team CNN] were expecting the issue to come up and had prepared documentation to counter, if needed.

The IG report was fudged - which means the situation is worse than reported.

Judge is so stunned, she mentions it in a couple of other interviews that follow this interview on the program.

at 3:25 the whistleblower begins on the IG Report

We may have a new Benghazi in the making with the release of Bowe Bergdahl. Much of it is here on FR. It's pretty complex and well worth the read.
Today on c-spam 90% of the callers all fell for the administration BS of briging home the only pow held in Afghanistan instead of what is probably the real truth.
check it:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/3162164/posts

Seems this guy Bowe, wandered off got caught with no weapon while using a makeshift latrine and then it gets fuzzy.
Was he turned and training the terror types/Tallybond how to use IED’s? Was he a plant? What role does his bearded arbic speaking father play? Lots of big questions here.
Of course the big play is the Chicago thugocracy trading/releasing five of the biggest terror types for this clown all being held at Club gitmo. All headed ultimately after another vacation in Qatar back to do their thing in Afghanistan.
These are major league terror types who can play a a big part in the destruction of Afghanistan once we leave.
Is the zero regime setting up things for a fall just as they did in Iraq?
Inquiring minds.........

Y’all know that American soldier released last week from the Taliban? The exchange was for five awful Taliban fighters.

Well his father allegedly tweeted (via Michelle Malkin’s Twitchy):

Robert Bergdahl@bobbergdahl
ABalkhi

I am still working to free
all Guantanamo prisoners. God
will repay for the death of every
Afghan child, ameen!

Isn’t this weird? It’s a tweet from the soldier’s FATHER.

Don’t tell me Obama got foiled again!

Add to that 5 of the top tier at GITMO get traded.

5 for 1.

Recall all the criticism the Scottish got for releasing the Lockerbie bomber?

How long before those releases come back to bite the USA in the rear?

You gotta "change" how you look at this stuff. Here is yet another opportunity to view the inner workings of yet another higher up in the val/jar-thugocracy regime.

Take what info/intel she will give up see what their latest chatting points are,view it from an intel from the enemy stance instead of an outrage.

I mean what did you expect from the DBM? Fair and balanced?

I have had a single big question re the VA. Since the year 2000 the VA budget(cato) has gone from 50 billion per year to 151 billion per year. Yet, our vets are dying en masse.
I want to know how all that money has been spent and where it actually went. I wonder if there are any audits in the works?
You would think that if any govt.agency had their budget tripled it should be a good thing for that agency not a disaster!!! What happened to all that dough?

Great link Tom.Here is post # 7 interesting to say the least.
..............
This “account” is all over the internet. Is it true? Can anyone verify its claims?

“I WAS THERE. I’m sick of all the lies. Here is the TRUTH, from someone on the ground. We were at OP Mest,Paktika Province, Afghanistan. It was a small outpost where B Co 1-501st INF (Airbone) ran operations out of, just an Infantry platoon and ANA counterparts there. The place was an Afghan graveyard. Bergdahl had been acting a little strange, telling people he wanted to “walk the earth” and kept a little journal talking about how he was meant for better things. No one thought anything about it. He was a little “out there”. Next morning he’s gone. We search everywhere, and can’t find him. He left his weapon, his kit, and other sensitive items. He only took some water, a compass and a knife. We find some afghan kids shortly after who saw an american walking north asking about where the taliban are. We get hits on our voice intercepter that Taliban has him, and we were close. We come to realize that the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban… to join them. We were in a defensive position at OP Mest, where your focus is to keep people out. He knew where the blind spots were to slip out and that’s what he did. It was supposed to be a 4-day mission but turned into several months of active searching. Everyone was spun up to find this guy. News outlets all over the country were putting out false information. It was hard to see, especially when we knew the truth about what happened and we lost good men trying to find him. PFC Matthew Michael Martinek, Staff Sgt. Kurt Robert Curtiss, SSG Clayton Bowen, PFC Morris Walker, SSG Michael Murphrey, 2LT Darryn Andrews, were all KIA from our unit who died looking for Bergdahl. Many others from various units were wounded or killed while actively looking for Bergdahl. Fighting Increased. IEDs and enemy ambushes increased. The Taliban knew that we were looking for him in high numbers and our movements were predictable. Because of Bergdahl, more men were out in danger, and more attacks on friendly camps and positions were conducted while we were out looking for him. His actions impacted the region more than anyone wants to admit. There is also no way to know what he told the Taliban: Our movements, locations, tactics, weak points on vehicles and other things for the enemy to exploit are just a few possibilities. The Government knows full well that he deserted. It looks bad and is a good propaganda piece for the Taliban. They refuse to acknowledge it. Hell they even promoted him to Sergeant which makes me sick. I feel for his family who only want their son/brother back. They don’t know the truth, or refuse to acknowledge it as well. What he did affected his family and his whole town back home, who don’t know the truth. Either way what matters is that good men died because of him. He has been lying on all those Taliban videos about everything since his “capture”. If he ever returns, he should be tried under the UCMJ for being a deserter and judged for what he did. Bergdahl is not a hero, he is not a soldier or an Infantryman. He failed his brothers. Now, sons and daughters are growing up without their fathers who died for him and he will have to face that truth someday.”

You are SO right. Democrats will say or do anything because the end justifies the means. As long as they win, nothing can come back to haunt them. It's pathetic, really. And, if caught, their excuse is "everyone does it" as thought that's true when it isn't.

Oh yeah, thanks again for the thread this morning. LOL

There’s something so smelly about this I want to scream.

Musta paid Valjar the right amount of money....with this administration, always follow the money.

First, out of all the American soldiers assigned to Afghanistan, only ONE gets captive?

Then there’s those weird tweets by this guy’s father.

I want to keep an open mind and I suppose the father could have been forced to send out such things to keep his son alive.

But the story you copy is something I am hearing all over the place.

Please, please don’t tell me the President of the United States traded five vicious anti-American fighters for an American loser-burger, a traitor of the highest order.

Please don’t tell me it’s THIS bad, that once again Obama flips America the finger!

WHERE ARE THE REPUBLICANS???

Good question “where is the money allocated to VA going?”

Where does the money go for the infrastructure for the stimulus? Cavuto wants to see Dept of Transportation audit.

We can imagine where it is going, but we don’t know.

FNS

Priebus: Clinton is trying to head off the Benghazi investigation. She seems to not know that al-Qaeda (or branch, thereof) was responsible.

==

According to timelines, the State Dept [who was in charge of the State Dept? Rhetorical question] issued an email [to personnel and other government agencies] at 6:06 p.m. ET on 9-11-2012 saying Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack.

[That was even before the 10:00 p.m. ET phone discussion between Clinton and Obama, and the 10:30 p.m. ET on 9-11-2012 statement from Hillary Clinton that blamed “inflammatory material posted on the Internet” for the violence.]

Your suspicions are probably correct Fish. This thing does smell and big time.

It's been surmised the zero is a Sunni Muslim and has little love for the shia.

Co-incidentally one of the five terror types released specializes in knocking off Sunnis in Afghanistan.

The coincidences just keep on coming with this insane clown posse

Yup. And during the debate, Fat Candy had that so-called “transcript” that said Obama called it terrorism within a day.

Yet Rice came on all 5 Network Sunday shows 5 DAYS LATER saying it was a spontaneous outburst over the video.

They truly have no shame.

They hurt our country, do whatever, just to win, to hang on to power over the rest of us.

By they I mean the drivebys and the democrats.

Ten minutes after the meeting with the Turkish diplomat the first shots are fired.Some coincidence.

The only way Hitlery can come out of this clean is not to have Gowdy even ask any timeline questions. How will she do that?

I don't see Hillary testifying under any circumstances. NO way she can come out clean.If that even matters anymore.

1) Yeah, sounds like he “wandered off” should be court marshaled for desertion.

2) Traded for 5 premium quality terrorist commanders....looks contrived.

3) Done without consultation of Congress.

4) Bearded Pushtu speaking father does so claiming his son now has problems speaking English....this guy needs to be rounded up immediately for interrogation.

Sounds exactly like what you stated...another phony prisoner exchange.

Thanks very much!

Much appreciated.

Whomever did this seems to know what was going on. Rationally it would be a lot to invent. Especially this paragraph which really caught my attention:

............................

"We come to realize that the kid deserted his post, snuck out of camp and sought out Taliban… to join them. We were in a defensive position at OP Mest, where your focus is to keep people out. He knew where the blind spots were to slip out and that’s what he did. It was supposed to be a 4-day mission but turned into several months of active searching. Everyone was spun up to find this guy."

(hows your brother? Never miss an episode. Also never thought you were guilty)

The disinformation is so pervasive in this regime that “truth” is almost never a sure thing. Gotta admit however this account does look real to me.

Hey Rod!

The panel has a spirited discussion on Hitlary, Evan Bayh ripping through the HRC-defense talking points (I can hardly stand to listen to his voice)

Woody Bobward also operating his lying mouth in defense of the witch, giving her kudos for getting it all out there, Laura Ingraham fires back “but that’s just because she wants it over-with”.

Now bringing on Jeff Miller and Dr Sam Foote, on the VA holocaust and resignation of Shensicki.

.. drink all night ....


Sorry to learn of your daughter’s woes, glad she is getting away from him, and I know you will do a great job helping her along the way.

The fact is, no interaction, or set of interactions with an active alcoholic can result in anything other than COMPLETE DISASTER. That’s a “bottle” you are trying to reason with, an “it,” not a person.

Some good books on co-dependency will help your daughter a lot. Also, just some basic info on borderline personalities and how they can disrupt us is really good. The little book “I Hate You, Don’t Leave Me” is excellent. And, if I recall, there is a book called Co-Dependent No More (it’s written by the ex-wife of an alcoholic) that will absolutely help her.

Knowledge and information are most important to people who have experienced a marriage like your daughters has. It can make ALL the difference.

Great catches Rock! If our side does not fully vette this entire situation we are not even in the fight.
