Latest Senate committee report on Benghazi
terrorist attack faults State Department

Fox News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Oblio, 12/31/2012 6:33:40 AM

A scathing Senate committee report on the Benghazi terrorist attack faults the State Department for failing to adequately respond to mounting security threats in the lead-up to the assault. The report says the facility was woefully under-protected at a time when the region, according to a top department official, was "flashing red" -- yet security was not improved, and nobody recommended the compound be shut down.The report, produced by the Senate homeland security committee and obtained by Fox News, follows the release of a State Department-commissioned review earlier in the month. Both are highly critical of the department.

Now will the stupid dims, including the foul prez realize that the clintoons are not capable of anything relating to protecting our citizens and the USA. I don´t buy the hag being ill, she is probably hiding out and thinks we will forget her criminal behavior regarding the Benghazi mess. I do not feel the slightest bit of sympathy with her problems, she earned them all.

She´s a stumbling drunk and probably hit herself in the head with a glass of vodka while trying to find her mouth. Thus she knocked herself out and "fainted" hitting the floor. An inquiry has yet to determine whether the blow with the glass or hitting the floor resulted in the concussion.

Blaming the "State Department" without mentioning a single name is like saying "the fork made me fat" or "the White House is to blame". Exactly what part of "the State Department" was to blame? A desk? A table? The water cooler?

Names. Who are the persons responsible for "the State Department"? Do they actually believe that blaming an inanimate object or agency without mentioning a responsible person will fly? Are we all supposed to guess?

Clearly, this Administration doesn´t want blame of any kind attached to any person within it so they blame an amorphous thing -- "the State Department" -- and hope we´ll all just fuggedaboutit.

When will the epa file THEIR report? If the intention is to just bury us in made up facts for a report(s) that attacks a bureaucracy with no named individuals, does this mean they (dems)are employing the "a lie told repeatedly will be believed" strategy? If so, we should anticipate a plethora of reports from different agencies "explaining" what happened.

What a useless report.
we still don´t know how involved Obama was. When he was actually notified, what his orders were, where he was. Glaringly absent were the number of Americans at the Mission and Annex; when they were moved, how many were wounded, where they are now, and if they were ever interviewed. We don´t know if Clinton was told months earlier about the lack of security. She had to have known and made the decision not to increase protection. It was above everyone else´s pay grade. It was a political decision not to protect our people. We don´t know who sent Rice out with talking points to mislead the public-but we can guess. We don´t know who´s bloody hand print it was on the Mission wall. someone was seriously wounded and still alive. Does not appear it belonged to those who died.
I don´t trust my government anymore to get the truth.

Time for refresher course (I´m aure you´ll recognize the source):

´´Always remember the first rule of power tactics: Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.

´´The second rule is: Never go outside the experience of your people.

´´The third rule is: Whereever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.

´´The fourth rule is: Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules.

´´The fourth rule carries within it the fifth rule: Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.

´´The sixth rule is: A good tactic is one that your people enjoy.

´´The seventh rule is: A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.

´´The eighth rule: Keep the pressure on.

´´The ninth rule: The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.

´´The tenth rule: The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.

´´The eleventh rule is: If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.

´´The twelth rule: The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.

´´The thirteenth rule: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.´´

Isn´t it interesting that George W, Bush was responsible for every little thing that happened during his administration but Obama is responsible for nothing.

Obama encouraged the atmosphere that put our people in danger and Hillary did nothing to protect them from the chaos that Obama condoned. They both need to go, but people like Obama and Hillary never pay the price for their incompetence. No blame will ever be laid at their feet because there is no courage or honor in Washinton DC.

The Libyan emabassy for the US was in Tripoli. Benghazi is 300 miles east of Tripoli. Edwards was on a gun running mission for Obama. The fact that the press continues to publish basic lies about the facts and Congress allows this to continue unchallanged means they are all complicit.

The ambassador was sent in to viper’s nest on an under-the-radar mission with a communications technician and a couple CIA commandos. Why?

When they came under attack, the WH and State wouldn’t answer their call, went into full denial. Why?

The Secretary of State won’t testify. Why?

The president shrugs.

The press whistles softly, looking at the ceiling.

Who gave to order to "stand down". That person is responsible for the deaths of the 4 men. Also, where are the 30 survivors? Why hasn´t at least one come out to thank the Seal´s family for his bravery? This is going to swept under the carpet. Think if this was a Republican President. The press would be all over this - how long did the ridiculous press go on about the spelling of potato and no one died. Is it a wonder why normal people chuckle about the press.

The only person with the authority to issue a "stand down" order in a situation like Benghazi, is 0bama. It was an order given to our military. Who is the CIC? Would any general have given that order without approval from 0bama? He never gave an order to do everything possible to help those people who were under attack. If he gave any order to help anyone, it was the stand down order to help his Muslim bro´s.

I don´t know where the answer is to all of this convoluted mess. I do know that the right questions aren´t being asked. We do know that Obama was the one that ordered the stand down because he is the only person that can do that. Pretending he isn´t seems to be the way he deals with the deaths of 4 American citizens. Same with Hillary. She knows! She doesn´t want to testify.

Apparently Benghazi was not a consulate. It didn´t deserve protection and that may be the reason none was provided. However it appears that Chris Stevens thought he deserved a lot more protection than he was getting. Was it a CIA gig? It seems to have been. Were they rounding up USA arms and selling them to Syria? That is the real question. How did those arms get to Libya in the first place. We were only involved as a NATO supporter. So many questions. 0 answers. I think we need them because we are paying for our President´s lawlessness and frankly I am getting tired of it. I can´t afford it anymore.

After lengthy investigations, the Pentagon has determined that three Army generals committed misconduct in separate incidents, adding to an unusually long list of senior military commanders who have been censured over the past year.On Friday, defense officials confirmed that Army Maj. Gen. Ralph O. Baker, the commander of a strategic counterterrorism force on the Horn of Africa, was fired March 28 on charges of sexual misconduct. Two officials familiar with the case said Baker was investigated for allegedly groping a female civilian employee after he had been drinking.

President Obama´s biggest gaffe yesterday when speaking of California Attorney General Kamala Harris was not in flirtatiously complimenting her as "the best-looking attorney general," but in introducing an observation from the system of beauty into a forum that was about the system of power.What´s that, you say?

Friday, however, he managed to upset conservatives at the annual conference known as CPAC, where thousands of bewildered Republicans gathered to figure out the way forward after their party’s 2012 electoral defeat. Murray ditched his prepared remarks on “America Coming Apart” in favor of an impromptu admonition to fellow conservatives to accept the legalization of both gay marriage and abortion.

With a Speech, Cardinal

VATICAN CITY—It took Jorge Mario Bergoglio four minutes to convince fellow cardinals he was their leader. Speaking in the Paul VI grand hall of the Vatican, the Argentine cardinal warned the Catholic Church against focusing too much on matters close to home—advice that came against the backdrop of a papacy that had been consumed by infighting among Vatican officials, a dwindling flock in Europe and secular trends in the West. The 76-year-old Father Jorge, as he is known back home, said Roman Catholicism needed to shift its focus outward, to the world beyond Rome—rather than being "self-referential," he said.

When President Obama gets to Jerusalem next week, one of the signals to listen for is an indication of what country he thinks he’s in. Normally this is clear when the President — any president — goes to the capital of a foreign country. He’s in whatever country the capital is capital of. But Mr. Obama has been refusing to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Not only that, but he has been refusing to admit that Jerusalem is even in Israel.

"Right now, we think it would take over a year or so for Iran to actually deliver a nuclear weapon, but obviously we don’t want to cut it too close,” the President told an Israeli television interviewer, in the process cutting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu off at the knees and giving the mullahs breathing room to keep enriching uranium.

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.

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.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

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.
