Congress Probes FBI Over Top Obama National Security Advisorís Security Clearance
freebeacon.com ^ | 1/5/17 | Adam Kredo

A top White House national security adviser and key proponent of the Obama administration’s diplomacy with Iran is the focus of a congressional inquiry following disclosures the FBI may have denied him top-level security clearances, according to communications exclusively obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

Ben Rhodes, a White House deputy national security adviser who led the administration’s efforts to mislead Congress about the terms of the Iran nuclear agreement, is under scrutiny in the wake of disclosures he was declined interim clearance status by the FBI in 2008, when the administration was moving into the White House.

Since that time, Rhodes has emerged as a key adviser to President Obama and a major player in the administration’s efforts to create a self-described pro-Iran deal “echo chamber” to mislead Congress and Americans about the terms of the Iranian nuclear agreement.

I believe this turkey was also involved in crafting the phony

If 0DUNGheap can get security clearances, ANYONE CAN. That train left the station LONG AGO. Granting security clearances to the vindictive, immature, petulant, narcissistic, megalomaniacal, delusional, pathological liar Marxist Muslim gay illegal alien is the GRAVEST MISTAKE the American voter ever made. EVER.

This is new? I can remember when numerous Carter and Clinton staff were denied a Top-Clearance designation but..., "somehow" attained their positions! Security Clearances have been a BAD JOKE for many decades!

Rhodes never had anything close to any ‘qualifications’ to be involved in anything related to anything. He’s just one of Obama’s favorite golf buddies and confidants.

Liberals should be ashamed of themselves for everything about the Obama regime. Sadly, for America, liberals are not capable of feeling shame.

Around 2010, someone went and did a review of the top two dozen people around Obama (his personal staff/advisers). One single individual at the time was considered to have foreign affairs experience. At least half of the group were little more than political hacks with no background or experience for the job they held. In a way, he hired people who were just as limited at the job...as he was.

Yeah and look at all the harm that's caused and all the millions of gallons of blood on Obama's hands. The blood letting continues to this day because of this asshole's regime.

The American voter did not make that mistake. The American voter voted against the son of a bitch. The muslim was put in the White House by the votes of traitors, parasites, America haters, fools, and idiots. With enough vote fraud factored in to make sure he got in the White House. Don’t blame that bastard occupation of the White House on Americans.
