The more news that comes out about what happened in Benghazi the sicker I get. I don’t know if I am mad as hell or sad. This garbage makes me wanna puke. I am sick tired of the state run and state controlled media lying through their teeth about the murder of our Libyan ambassador and two marines. All in all four people were murdered. Obama, Hilary Clinton, the Demo-Republican Party and the rest of the bastards did nothing. They blamed all of this crap on a video by a nut job that no one saw. Obama and Hilary Clinton are responsible for the killing of four Americans. Obama and Clinton did nothing. Obama needs to be impeached. Obama is criminal who needs to be taken out of office.
Fellow Republicans asked John Boehner to investigate what really happened in Benghazi. Boehner has blocked this and will not hold hearings. Boehner is in Obama’s hip pocket.
The smear campaign is underway against the folks who are stepping forward to tell the truth about what really happened in Benghazi. Democrat Congressmen Elijah Cummings screamed out, “ Death is a part of Life.” And then he went on and blamed these hearings on Republicans playing politics. Cummings said- “I have seen nothing to make me question the truthfulness of our nation’s military commanders.” And while he said the oversight committee has a duty to hear testimony from Hicks and the other whistleblowers, “We also have a duty to thoroughly investigate these claims before we make public accusations,” which means we’re gonna examine the seriousness of the charge. And if we don’t think the charge is serious, then nothing else that follows is relevant. And that’s the way they play the game. So what he’s really talking about is this has all been trumped up. This is nothing but an attempt to embarrass our dear president, therefore nothing happening here is real.”
Spokes hole Jay Carney said, “attempts to politicize the issue.”
The Politico- White House press secretary Jay Carney charged Wednesday that the continued scrutiny of the administration’s behavior around last year’s attack in Benghazi is little more than yet another of Republicans’ “attempts to politicize” the issue.
“This is a subject that has from its beginning been subject to attempts to politicize it by Republicans, while in fact what happened in Benghazi was a tragedy,” Carney said during his daily briefing, which took place as former diplomats testified on the attack before the House Oversight Committee.
Further examination of Benghazi is clearly political, he said, because the incident and surrounding circumstances have “been looked at exhaustively.”
The continued pursuit of details of the attack is, Carney said, “part of an effort to chase after what isn’t the substance here.” The substance, he said, is that the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was attacked, four Americans were killed and the president has worked to make sure something similar doesn’t happen again.
This is only the beginning of the all out attacks on these brave people who are coming forward to tell the real truth about what happened in Benghazi.

Capitol Hill hearings this Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack by jihadists will feature three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya and highest-ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time of the Benghazi jihad attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top security officer in Libya.
Nordstrom first testified last fall about how State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound. Hicks and Thompson are coming forward publicly for the first time this week with more damning evidence contradicting Team Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claims about the administration’s response the night of the attack and in the ensuing months of cover-ups.
According to the House Oversight Committee, Hicks reportedly will refute Team Obama’s claims that nobody was told to stand down and that all military resources available were used in the rescue efforts. As Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi to save lives during the attacks, Hicks says the team received a phone call from the U.S. Special Operations Command Africa telling them “you can’t go” and that the decision was “purely political.”
The State Department press office already has accused Victoria Toensing, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, of “lying” about administration pressure on her clients. Left-wing operatives funded by billionaire George Soros have taken to Twitter to mock reports of fear and intimidation among the new witnesses. White House press secretary Jay Carney continues to sing “Long, Long Ago” and deny all wrongdoing.
The Democrats blame it on the Budget cuts.
The Weekly Standard- Democratic congressman William Lacy Clay of Missouri blamed congressional budget cuts for the terror attack on Americans in Benghazi:
The truth- CBS News- Hoping to funnel into one chronological timeline the rampantly varying accounts of how President Obama’s administration responded last Sept. 11 in the wake of an attack on a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday will hear from three “whistleblowers” expected to offer testimony enormously at odds with the administration’s characterization of a strike that killed four Americans.
Testifying are Mark Thompson, acting deputy assistant Secretary of State for counterterrorism; Greg Hicks, former deputy chief of mission in Libya; and Eric Nordstrom, former regional security officer in Libya. Excerpts of an interview Hicks did with investigators that were released to CBS News’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday boomeranged the Benghazi politics back into the spotlight four months after hearings on the issue in the House and Senate.
According to Hicks, “everybody in the mission” believed it was an act of terror “from the get-go.” But on Sept. 16 – five days after the attack – U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice hit the Sunday show circuit, peddling the theory that the strike began “spontaneously” out of protests in Egypt and was not a premeditated terrorist act. Rice’s spot on “Face the Nation” that day was preceded by the new president of Libya, Mohammed al-Magariaf, who said his government had “no doubt that this was pre-planned, predetermined.”
“I’ve never been as embarrassed in my life, in my career, as on that day,” Hicks told investigators of Rice’s appearances.
The top official in Libya after Amb. Chris Stevens died in the attack, Hicks said he was never consulted about the administration’s talking points that puppeteered Rice’s remarks: “I was personally known to one of Rice’s staff members,” he said. “Even on Sunday morning, I could have been called, and, you know, the phone call could have been, ‘Hey, Greg, Amb. Rice is going to say blah, blah, blah,’ and I could have said, ‘No, that’s not the right thing.’ That phone call was never made.”
Administration officials have staunchly stood by Rice, whose vilification after the attack cost her top billing on the short list to replace Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. At a Tuesday night gala at which Rice was receiving an award, Vice President Joe Biden said she had “the absolute, total, complete confidence of the president.”
Critics, though, of the Benghazi “cover-up” have continued to rally attention to the White House’s bungled talking points, as well as reports that the State Department deliberately declined requests for additional security in Benghazi
There’s more. This was taken from Politicfact-
“If the buildup doesn’t disappoint, you can expect plenty of news out of the U.S. House Oversight Committee hearing on May 8, 2013.
The panel, which includes freshman U.S. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Madison, will review how President Barack Obama’s administration — including then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — handled the Sept. 11, 2012 bombing at the U.S. consulate in Benghzai, Libya.
The attack killed four Americans — and set off administration critics such as U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis.
A few days before the hearing, it was disclosed that a top U.S. diplomat had said “everyone” at the consulate thought “from the beginning” that the attack was an act of terror.
“Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton said. “What difference – at this point, what difference does it make?”
So that was the punch-line quote. But what was the context?
With Benghazi back in the news and renewed attention being paid to Clinton’s comment, we thought this would be a good time for In Context, an occasional feature that gives context to statements that get widespread notice.
Based on a C-SPAN video of their six-minute exchange, here is a transcript of what Johnson and Clinton said during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on Jan. 23, 2013:
The Washington Times- Democrats Wednesday pooh-poohed charges of a cover-up of the Benghazi terror attacks last year, saying charges from Republican lawmakers and State Department employees were overblown and had been answered.
“I don’t think there’s a smoking gun here today,” said Rep. Mark Pocan, Wisconsin Democrat. “Not even a lukewarm slingshot.”
Mr. Pocan is a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, which held a hearing Wednesday to take testimony from State Department officials, including one who was one the ground in Libya during the attack, which killed Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.
While Republicans on the panel raised questions about the Obama administration’s handling of the attack and its aftermath, many Democrats in their questions rushed to the administration’s defense.
Democratic Rep. John Tierney of Massachusetts said the House Intelligence Committee had already looked at the issue of controversial “talking points” prepared by officials a few days after the attack.
References to al Qaeda’s possible involvement in the attack were struck from the document, leading Republicans to charge that the White House had engineered the changes to hide al Qaeda’s involvement and help the president’s reelection campaign.
“Gen. Petraeus, the former head of the CIA, made it clear that the change was made to protect classified sources of information — not to spin it, not to politicize it — and it wasn’t done at the direction of the White House,” Mr. Tierney insisted.
The deeper one digs into the truth the more one sees that Obama, Hilary Clinton, and The Democrats did nothing. Obama was more worried about getting elected than saving American lives. Obama should be impeached.
Obama is evil. He is doing all of this on purpose. Obama wants to destroy this country. If Nixon or Reagan, or any one of the Bush’s did this all hell would break loose in the media. To quote Mark Levin “ Obama never has scandals, only Republicans.”
Rush calls it the Limbaugh theorem.
THIS EVIL MAN OBAMA NEEDS TO BE IMPEACHED AND THROWN IN JAIL.
