The Benghazi Report: How smoothly
Washington washes away its scandals

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 12/19/2012 9:17:22 AM

You´ll be able to hear and read today about the State Department report on the Benghazi consulate sacking and killings. But no matter how much you listen or read, you´ll only be getting part of the story. Here´s why: The report from the Accountability Review Board is only one tiny piece of a vast bureaucratic ballet that´s evolved in Washington over decades to handle hot issues, even deadly ones like Benghazi, with minimal damage to the politicians and bureaucrats in power at the time. It´s an amazingly sophisticated and bipartisan procedure that looks sound to naive eyes.

Replace "Washington" with "Democrats" and you have a more accurate headline.

Fast and Furious
Solyandra
Egypt
Syria
Withdrawal from Iraq
Petreaous
Libya
Benghazi
Iran

It goes own and own and own...

No. Washington washes away SOME of the scandals, and we all know which ones. The passing of Judge Bork is a fine example. That learned man was attacked for no reason, slandered and lied about with no repercussions for the liberals. The Dems can and always will do whatever they want. Judge Bork would have been an amazing Supreme Court Justice.

This country is changing, and not for the better. I´m very sad about this and don´t see it getting better in the near term.

I find it questionable as to why Mrs. Clinton did not go to the hospital for her concussion. Said she was treated at home. Do they have all the medical testing equipment and e-ray equipment in their home?
Anyway it worked out well for her not to have to testify now that we know that no one was responsible for what happened in Benghazi.

The pols in washington have proven themselves incapable, incompetent, and untrustworthy. Our government is becoming a charade, motivated by greed and fueled by unaccountability.

Re: #2 Good comment. Good list

And it is indeed the Democrats that "own and own and own" these scandals.

Yes there is systemic problems, but isn´t why Managers are put in place? Don´t forget, Hillary is one of the most brilliant leaders have! Why didn´t she see these issues?

Also, what do you say about the Ambassador crying out for protection for the impending assault? How can you not cite current State officers for ignoring this?

´No discipline this time, but boy, if it ever happens again, there will be hell to pay.´ Whitewash.

Wuncha think that someone in the administration would be minimally embarrassed? High level government employees: Look to your left and to your right and see if there is anyone raising his hand.

While you are at it, make a note to self to pay your back taxes. We´d appreciate it.

The only difference between this outfit and dog-doo is that the latter can be picked up with a shovel and discarded.

See if this sounds familiar: A president doesn´t like what happened in the past and doesn´t want to wait for a legislative fix. So, he uses his pen and telephone to do it himself with the help of a cooperative attorney general. That´s what Barack Obama and Eric Holder have decided to do on commutations of long drug prison sentences. [Snip] The pair has decided not only to accept many more commutation pleas. These men with round-the-clock personal security have decided to actively seek out incarcerated candidates and urge them to apply for release.

I’m Senator Lamar Alexander. Have you ever read something so obviously right that it made you wish you’d written it? That happened to me the other day reading Newt Gingrich’s book ‘Breakout.’ Newt was quoting technology expert Tim O’Reilly, who was talking about the way the government should operate in the internet age. O’Reilly was saying this: “The best way for government to operate is to figure out what kinds of things are enablers of society and then make investments in those things. The same way that Apple figured out, ‘If we turn the iPhone into a platform, outside developers will bring hundreds of thousands of applications to the

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Tensions continued to mount over Ukraine Tuesday as that nation´s military engaged rebel insurgents in the east and Russian leaders refused to recognize the Kiev leadership as legitimate, blaming it for the growing instability. An estimated 50,000 Russian troops remain massed on Ukraine´s borders as uniformed intimidation. In the adjacent Black Sea, a Russian military jet buzzed American naval ships, the high-seas equivalent of a drive-by middle finger.

It was a tense standoff in rural Nevada with armed protesters closing I-15 for a while and facing off against even more heavily-armed federal agents. For now, that volatile Bundy Ranch confrontation has been defused. But it´s not over by any means. And we may well experience others that do not pause in non-violence. These are profound disputes illustrative of abiding suspicions among average Americans and their government headed by a man who promised to bring people together but didn´t. And it comes in an uncertain economic time when so many have given up big dreams just to keep what

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Fraud runs rampant in Census Bureau

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
