    Democratic members of the House Select Committee on Benghazi published their final report on the investigation into the Sept. 11, 2012, terror attack Monday, front-running the findings from committee Republicans that are expected to be released within days. The 339-page report was accompanied by the unclassified versions of transcripts from interviews with dozens of witnesses involved in the handling of the attack. Democrats vowed their report would highlight "abuses" from Chairman Trey Gowdy and panel Republicans who probed the circumstances surrounding Benghazi for more than two years. The minority report, entitled "Honoring Courage, Improving Security, and Fighting the Exploitation of...

    Newly released emails on the Benghazi terror attack suggest a senior White House aide played a central role in preparing former U.N. ambassador Susan Rice for her controversial Sunday show appearances -- where she wrongly blamed protests over an Internet video. More than 100 pages of documents were released to the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. Among them was a Sept. 14, 2012, email from Ben Rhodes, an assistant to the president and deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. The Rhodes email, with the subject line: "RE: PREP Call with...

    Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law, the mediocre money manager Marc Mezvinsky, is shutting down a special Greece-focused investment fund that had lost nearly 90 percent of its value over the past two years.The Eaglevale Hellenic Opportunity fund, which had raised $25 million from investors, was pitched as a bet on economic recovery in Greece—that hasn’t panned out, exactly. The fund reported a 48% decline in 2015, when Mezvinsky told investors that his firm’s predictions about the Greek economy had “proved incorrect,” and hasn’t recovered. Mezvinsky, who married Chelsea Clinton in 2010, founded the investment firm Eaglevale Partners two years later with the...

    On Nov. 8, 2011, President Obama met with then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy in Cannes after what had been a particularly rough week for US-Israeli relations. Modal Trigger The week prior, the UN agency UNESCO admitted Palestine as a member state. Congress responded by cutting off UNESCO’s funding, a move the Obama administration direly opposed. Michael Oren, who served as Israel’s US ambassador from 2009 to 2013, said the president, having opposed Palestine’s admission to the agency, “thought he had done enough . . . and did not need to punish them further.” President Obama responded to Congress’ act by admonishing Israel for...

    Hillary Clinton plans to improve her relationship with the press for 2016, and her choice of Tom Nides as a top campaign official could be a good start. He is married to a top executive of CNN. Politico’s Mike Allen reports that Tom Nides, who was formerly Hillary Clinton’s deputy secretary of state, will be leaving his vice chairman position at Morgan Stanley for a top role in Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Unmentioned by Allen is that Nides is the longtime husband of Virginia Moseley, who has been the vice president and deputy Washington bureau chief for CNN since 2012.

    You knew the mainstream media was biased, but this is incredible. It was revealed today that CBS News President David Rhodes' brother is Obama Deputy National Security Advisor Ben Rhodes, who was instrumental in rewriting the Benghazi talking points. But it gets worse. It is now learned that ABC President Ben Sherwood's sister, Dr. Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, is a Special Assistant to Barack Obama on national security affairs. But even this isn't it! CNN's deputy bureau chief, Virginia Moseley, is the wife of Tom Nides, who until February was Hillary Clinton's deputy.

    Republicans are 'not giving up' on BenghaziBy Julian Pecquet - 12/15/12 03:24 PM ET Republican lawmakers are vowing to keep pressing the administration on Benghazi despite Susan Rice’s decision to drop her bid to become secretary of State. “We'll continue to seek answers,” a Republican Senate aide told The Hill. “We're not giving up on it.” Rice’s decision to step aside averted a contentious confirmation fight with Republican senators that might have pointed to an end to the political battle over the U.S. consulate attack. The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations had become the flash-point for criticism since describing...

    06/05/2012 04:36 Legislation would force State Department to differentiate between Palestinian refugees and descendants of refugees. WASHINGTON – Palestinian advocates are warning that a new US Senate amendment dictating a reporting requirement on the issue of Palestinian refugees could set back efforts to reach a peace deal. The amendment to a bill, recently approved by the Senate Appropriations Committee, mandates that the secretary of state must report how many of the Palestinians serviced by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency fled or left homes in Israel during the War of Independence and how many are only their descendants.
