Fox Analyst Shreds ‘Cowardly,
Duplicitous’ Admin Over Benghazi:
‘Sacrificed American Lives For Politics’

Mediaite, by Meenal Vamburkar

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 5/8/2013 11:47:07 AM

Ahead of the Benghazi hearings in which three witnesses are set to testify before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade invited Fox News analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters to discuss the issue. Peters was unflinching in his criticism of the “cowardly” Obama administration — and the “establishment media” that aids it. “Is this a national security coverup?” Kilmeade asking, explaining that the witness testimony is expected to say the administration was deceitful in its handling of the situation. “The administration, facing the election, went into panic mode, wanted to contain it,”

Comments:
That pretty much sums it up doesn´t it? When Ralph Peters speaks, I listen. He is a fine, honorable man who speaks the truth.

It would be interesting if Hillary´s career was bookmarked by Watergate and Benghazigate. And hopefully, having the President leave office as before.

Plainly stating “I’m angry,” Peters criticized the administration for “telling so many lies” that “they make Nigerian phone scammers look like paragons of integrity.”

That line says it all..

Love, Honor, Truth

Here we go again. Another congressional hearing, lots of heat but not so much light. At least time-wise. Constricted once again by their little timer clock, we hear more of ´we have to move on´ than we hear details and facts. Kudos to Chmn. Issa as he gave Mr. Hicks unlimited time, but now there´s no ´time´ for anything else except Democrat platform-shouting about how horrible poor little Mzzzzz. Hilarious has been ´slandered´ and how Chmn. Issa himself has LIED ON TV.

There was too much time between planning and scheduling this hearing, and today´s hearing. We´re getting nothing but b.s. out of the Democrats, their talking points, and their so-called questions. How many times can they interrupt a cogent response to an incoherent question, once that answer makes them sticky in their pannies and they have to cut it off.

I may have said this before, but I officially despise liberals and Democrats. They´re all speaking from Hillary´s notes.

And boo to C-Span for not covering this hearing. They show it on their C-Span3 listing, but their channel 3 is not available. 1 and 2 are, Radio is, but not 3.

Shame on C-Span. I have it on FoxNews as live feed because Fox News keeps interrupting so they can hear THEMSELVES talk about what THEY heard and how THEY interpret. Boos to them too, but thanks for having it on their website.

In the effort to communicate with liberals, it seems we have forgotten to factor this in: that life to all progressives is cheaper than it is to non-progressives. That goes for the life of this country. That goes for the life of a soldier. That goes for the life of all children of the next generation and the one after that. These are dead souls, or souls with a dying "faith tradition." They cannot really understand love because they do not know the God of Love, who said "Greater love hath no man than that he lay down his life for his brother."

BTW - I have always imagined what Reagan would have done to Libya and the Muslim thugs.

He would have wiped them out, saved whomever he could, stayed awake until everyone was safe, THEN, held a press conference to warn other Muslims.

That´s what an AMERICAN President DOES.

I repeat -- nothing will ever come of this. It is already just showing on Fox and is being covered up by all the other media. It does not matter what anyone of high up men say - they will be shredded to pieces. This country is no truthful country anymore. We are being ruled by socialists and there is no turning back.

I am so angry, so sad the continue lies of this administration and those in Congress. American citizens were killed and it matters, they could have been saved but politicians allowed them to be killed by terrorists. I want to scream at them, I want to punch them in the face and tell them to start acting like citizens of the United States and not some two bit apologist for this administration. The same goes for the media, stop protecting this administration, this administration will allow you to be killed to save their butts from any criticism. Start thinking of the country and it´s citizens!

Thanks, ## 25 and 26, I might check it out. Although, I am so disappointed by the mild comments even here, that I´m thinking it isn´t worth the time. The only media comments I´ve heard so far were from the dense and traitorous Erick Erickson, who almost didn´t even address it this afternoon, and when he did chalked it up to incompetence. Baldface lying to the American public does not fall under the purview of incompetence last time I checked.

Very frustrating to have this seemingly fizzle like this...

Here´s how I think this happened:

The Libyan Ambassador did or said something that ticked off Hitlery. We know from other sources that she has a short fuse, a giant ego and a long grudge-bearing temper. The Libyan Embassy either did not get required security or had it pulled to teach him a lesson. She probably smugly gloated each time she turned down his requests for security, imagining him sweating bullets while she, in her ivory tower ´knew´ he was safe enough, as Obama had killed Osama, and ousted Qaddaffi and the Libyans ´loved´ the Administration.

While I personally think they had advance warning, hence the Egyptian Embassy´s odd apology for that unknown video, but in any case, the attack was coming and Hitlery had no way to stop it without revealing to everyone the games she was playing with people´s lives. Worse, the attack came to Obama´s attention during his meeting with Panetta. He shrugged, said, "This isn´t MY fault - deal with it, I have an election to run..." and went to bed, leaving the ball in Hitlery and Panetta´s hands.

They dithered, then after confirming that any response by counter-terrorism would let the cat out of the bag, decided to cut their losses and let the Al Qaida terrorists slaughter Stevens and his staff. No witnesses meant easier to sweep under the rug. The video was either a planned or convenient excuse for this coverup...

...except some troublesome heroes defied orders to stand down and who gave their lives to save the consulate staff (leaving numerous witnesses) caused it to blow up in their faces. With the help of the media, they managed to put a lid on it till after the elections. Now they are rapidly approaching true tyranny to survive.

No. 30. I like your Hitlery theory. It starts to answer my question of WHY? Why did certain people want the Amb dead? I don´t believe the other theories that the Powers are lazy, incompetent, or dull and that´s why they did nothing.

I think there is a more sinister motive, and your Hitlery angle is a nice start, IMHO.

Next he knew hillary was just as eager to make political points and set her up to take the fall.
finally they lied after Americans died.

Hillary should get plenty of blame for the deaths of those four Americans, and for the cover-up. I do wonder what Huma Abedin´s role was in all this--she has serious ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.

If there’s a story involving foreigners, religion, sports, sex, or pretty much anything, you can bet Starnes will somehow show up (on Fox’s web and TV properties or on his delightfully terrible Twitter account) to try and scare fellow evangelicals into believing there’s a war on lowly ol’ Christian American folks being waged either by Muslims, atheists, “seculars,” Hollywood libruls, or “the homosexual agenda.” His shtick can easily be summed up by the titles of his two

At last, one House Republican is ready to use the Constitutional power of the purse to reign in Attorney General Eric Holder’s lawlessness. Rep. Frank Wolf (R-Virginia), chairman of the Appropriations subcommittee that oversees Eric Holder’s Justice Department will utilize the power of the purse to withhold funds from the Justice Department. Eric Holder has been lobbying the Republican controlled House for a larger budget. Wolf says he will withhold $1,000,000 for every instance of failure for Eric Holder to respond to Wolf’s demands for information. The Constitution vests the House of Representatives with the power of the purse, an enormously effective tool

President Barack Obama saved wife Michelle’s skirt from blowing above her head in the wind as they boarded Air Force One today. As the Obamas boarded the plane in Houston, Michelle’s skirt began to vigorously billow in the wind. Barack kindly placed his hand over his wife’s bottom to save her from potentially embarrassing photos. In doing so, the President helped Michelle avoid a fiasco similar to the ‘Marilyn moment’ experienced by the Duchess of Cambridge on Monday when she disembarked her flight in Wellington, New Zealand. The Royal was also famously caught out on a Canadian jet tarmac in 2011, when

WASHINGTON — Kathleen Sebelius, the health and human services secretary, is resigning, ending a stormy five-year tenure marred by the disastrous rollout of President Obama’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act. Mr. Obama accepted Ms. Sebelius’s resignation this week, and on Friday morning he will nominate Sylvia Mathews Burwell, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, to replace her, officials said. The departure comes as the Obama administration tries to move beyond its early stumbles in carrying out the law, persuade a still-skeptical public of its lasting benefits,

Openly Partisan Stephen Colbert Chosen

Stephen Colbert will soon be the first openly partisan comic with a late night show on network television. It´s just one reason why today´s news that the liberal host of The Colbert Report will take over for David Letterman on The Late Show smacks of culture, not show business pragmatism. Late night hosts must appeal to a wide audience. So poaching a comedian from the niche-friendly world of cable television makes little sense, particularly a figure with a hard-partisan persona. Yes, Colbert plays a "conservative" on his Comedy Central program, but it´s just a pose to mock the right and

Under the administration of President Obama, as never before in my lifetime, there is reason to be a bit afraid of the federal government. I have written two books documenting Obama´s abuses of power, his assaults on the Constitution, his wars against business and energy, his abominably reckless spending, his divisiveness, his renegade Justice Department, his regulatory expansion, his executive orders, his overall lawlessness, and more. Obama´s conduct concerning Obamacare alone would be enough to get the impeachment wheels rolling for any other president. His flagrant, deliberate lies regarding almost every aspect of that

Speaking to USA Today Tuesday on the 40th anniversary of his then record-breaking 715th home run, the 80-year-old Aaron said that Republicans are hindering Obama’s job performance. “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated,” Aaron told USA Today Sports.

Attorney General Eric Holder strayed from prepared remarks to slam the way he was “treated” by a House committee the day before, calling it evidence of “ugly and divisive” civil rights challenges facing him and President Barack Obama. Speaking to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s National Action Network at its annual convention in New York on Wednesday, Holder talked about the state of civil rights today and brought up a House committee hearing Tuesday that grew contentious, according to video from Mediaite and reports from outlets including Capital New York. “The last five years have been defined by significant strides and

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact. There’s a big spike in Medicaid, just as everyone expected. There’s a less big but

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

Eric Holder ventured off script in a speech Wednesday to the National Action Network, the organization led by MSNBC host and recently-exposed FBI informant Al Sharpton. “I’m pleased to note that the last five years have been defined by significant strides and by lasting reforms,” said Holder at the conference of black activists, before improvising “even in the face, even in the face, of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly, and divisive adversity.” “If you don’t believe that, if you look at the way, forget about me, forget about me, if you look at the way the attorney general of the United States was treated

Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) could face up to five years in federal prison for obstructing a Congressional proceeding. On Wednesday, Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) and five Subcommittee Chairmen on the committee sent a letter to Ranking Member Cummings demanding an explanation for his staff’s queries from the IRS, why the Minority hid these efforts from the Majority, and why the Ranking Member denied such actions by his staff at a February Subcommittee hearing: “Although you have previously denied that your staff made inquiries to the IRS about conservative organization True the Vote that may have led to additional

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

Although the news media and Hollywood relish telling stories about horrific crimes and serial killers, they are strangely silent about Dr. Kermit Gosnell, an abortionist who killed living, viable babies by snipping their spinal cords with scissors, and who is “America’s most prolific serial killer,” said actor Kevin Sorbo and his wife Sam Jenkins in a video to promote funding for a movie about Gosnell. “Kermit Gosnell is America’s most prolific serial killer,” says Kevin Sorbo, who starred in the TV series Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. “For more than three decades he was an abortion doctor in Philadelphia, where he

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not
