Benghazi Hearing: Special Ops
Commander Said He Was Traveling,
Had ‘Unreliable Communications’

PJ Media, by Bridget Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/31/2013 8:07:31 PM

The former commander of special operations in Northern Africa told a closed-door briefing today that he was largely detached from events the night of the Benghazi attack as he was traveling at the time. The testimony of Col. George H. Bristol, USMC, Former Commander, Joint Special Operations Task Force-Trans Sahara, Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command Africa, had been eagerly anticipated by members of Congress. Originally, lawmakers had been told by the Defense Department that he had retired — the actual date is Aug. 1, an “administrative error” according to the Pentagon — and that they didn’t have

Comments:
His testimony obviously wasn´t helpful. No one wants to take responsibility for this tragedy and we all know why. I feel so sorry for all those families who lost loved ones. I wonder if we will ever get the truth because 0bama and his regime will do everything in their power to not allow it to come out.

He got sick and then fell and had a concussion.

And then the dog ate his cell phone.

And then Leon Pannera Bread called and suggested he shut the flock up.

The commander of special ops had unreliable communication? Is this a joke? Turn in your uniform, traitor.

Take a guess who is keeping this guy´s mouth shut. Is he being threatened? A Special Ops commander who gave such a feeble excuse is shameful and unworthy of his title.

"Hey Colonel - nice retirement package ya got there...what is it - July 31? No? August 1? No matter. Be a shame if something happened to it... real shame. So anyway, when are you supposed to testify on Benghazi again...?"

OK, if Sgt. Schultz was out of contact, who was the officer assigned to handle that in his absence?

This is BS! The NORMAL, NON-Obama military does not leave critical posts unmanned. If this is actually true, and I doubt it, he needs to be court martialed for gross dereliction of duty.

That Col. Bristol had "unreliable communications" during the 8-hour attack should trigger an investigation on its own. We spend millions (billions?) to provide reliable communications for our military, especially in circumstances like this.

This does not pass the smell test.

The Marine colonel does not want to endanger his civilian job at the Pentagon that was surely arranged for him shortly after Benghazi. Allows him to collect Marine Corp pension plus $135,000 salary for the next 15 years. Hate to write this, but Col Bristol is not one of the men who will be honored by the Marines. He has apparently sold out his fellow Marines to protect Obama and Hillary.

Old, old joke - - -

- - "What? They don´t have phones out of town?"

That joke became lame by about 1923 - - but here we have a 21st-century colonel trying to use it.

Pathetic. And criminal.

Sept 11 and this guy is "out of pocket", this stinks beyond my ability to express. Also note the last of the article, when he said the "department" did not request non disclosure agreements. He did not say non disclosure agreements were not requested, only that the "department" did not. I really wish these people knew how to parse the language and could think on their feet.

This was a closed door hearing and I´m sure that the testimony was cherry picked before being released to the press. I am very concerned that Rogers, the chair of the Intelligence Committee seems to be letting the Democrats write the press briefings. The same can be said of the way the talking points changed so many times in 24 hours. Rogers had to know, but we silent.

Honor has given way to self-preservation. The military is not exempt from the infiltration of today´s culture. When you have an administration that promotes individuals who are loyal to it and are willing to say or do anything that they know will protect it, truth is going to be elusive. Many men and women in high office today have thrown their moral compass aside. Honor comes cheap and this administration is more than willing to pay.

Unless this guy donated his paycheck and pension back to the U.S. treasury, they know exactly where he lives! This bothers me more than what happened in Benghazi.
The Pentagon and top military leaders obviously feel no obligation to reply to the nation they "serve" when Congress is seeking answers! That my friends, is what makes a banana republic - a military that is arrogant and will not submit to authority.

Did anyone on the committee ask him to define "unreliable communications?" (BTW, that´s bs!) If it was unreliable, then shouldn´t he have gotten an officer in a location who had reliable communications to monitor the attack and with authority to give appropriate orders to protect our brave men?

I would drag his a** back before the committee and grill him until he can´t see straight. He is either covering up or an incompetent idiot.

We might as well face the fact that virtually everyone in the chain of command and everyone in Congress who was briefed want this covered up. It seems obvious by the number of CIA operatives in Benghazi that this was a spook operation. That the Turkish Ambassador was the last visitor is also a clue. We may finally get to the bottom of it but I think it will take a whistle blower. CNN may find out by interviewing the attackers but will they report it if it puts Hillary in a bad light? Who knows.

Some of you need to actually read the very short article and others need to read it again before you start calling a very dedicated Marine Officer a traitor! It was the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Legislative Affairs that said no one had been asked to sign non-disclosure agreements, not Bristol. We still have no idea what happened or what role Col. Bristol actually had in any of it! Do you know anything about the man or anything about his career? People at one time called Oliver North a traitor. Just sayin....

Maybe that´s all that O-Bomber ever meant with that term...
These scandals erupt soley because the participants did not yet receive nor obtain

I´m disappointed in the officer, but more concerned that this indicates the degree of pressure that politicians are able to exert on our military people. One of my sources of reassurance in concern of the direction this country is going, is that I know most of the military leadership is composed of loyal patriots who will stand for the constitution collectively. I wonder now. There will be 8 years for the leadership to be diluted ideologically.

Obama to meet with healthcare leaders
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Elise Viebeck    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 4/16/2014 9:15:29 PM     Post Reply
President Obama is scheduled to meet with health insurance executives and state insurance commissioners on Thursday, just two days after ObamaCare´s special enrollment period officially closed. The meetings, which will include at least one photo-op, are a chance for the White House to telegraph unity with health insurance companies and state regulators involved with the rollout of the healthcare law. The announcement of new enrollment figures was also expected separately on Thursday. It is possible Obama could reveal the numbers before one of the two meetings. Total exchange enrollment is likely to have risen since last week, when Health and Human Services Secretary

Breckenridge, Colo. - A contentious eminent domain case in which a local government sought to take private backcountry land for open space has been settled, with the landowners agreeing to a $115,000 sale. "To me, what just came out of it is, you can´t win, you can´t fight the government," landowner Ceil Barrie said Wednesday. She and her husband, Andy, owned ten acres of land perched at 11,000 feet elevation in Breckenridge. The property, with breathtaking views, was a private patch of land surrounded by White River National Forest. An old, uninhabited day-use cabin, an outhouse and a shuttered gold

Sunday, George Stephanopoulos announced that Laura Ingraham was joining ABC News as a contributor. So the network that long employed a Cuomo and still employs a Clinton "bimbo" destroyer has formalized a relationship with a conservative pundit. To the Left, this is yet another example of the mainstream media attempting to compensate for a liberal bias which never was significant and vanished altogether roughly forty years ago. They want no debate. In a Tuesday piece for Salon, Heather Digby Parton, who blogs at her own site under the name Digby, asserted that the conservative claim of liberal media bias is "absurd"

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

"If Eric Cantor´s campaign or any of his affiliates has hired Shaun Kenney’s consulting firm, any pretense of fairness in the upcoming Seventh District Congressional Race is diminished," Brat wrote in a letter to Pat Mullins, chairman of the Republican Party of Virginia (RPVA). On Monday, a posting by a contributor at the blog Kenney founded, Bearing

The White House has announced that John Podesta, President Obama’s current Counselor, will lead his delegation to the Holy See for the Mass of canonization of Popes John XXIII and John Paul II on April 27, 2014. Podesta will head the delegation which will also include Rep. Xavier Becerra, chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, and Katie Beirne Fallon, Assistant to the President and Director of Legislative Affairs. Podesta is the founder and chairman of the Center for American Progress (CAP), a liberal think tank funded by wealthy liberal supporters such as George Soros, Peter B. Lewis, Steve Bing, and

NYPD´s Surveillance Program:

National security should serve policy objectives. It should not be a victim of political correctness. Politics should be kept especially far away from the practice of intelligence. Today´s decision by the NYPD to close the unit that was mapping Muslim communities in New York is very likely a product of political pressure. It is a decision that will make the city targeted in the largest terrorist attack in modern history less safe. I have gone on record in the past—on Al Jazeera, of all places—to explain why the program was a good idea and crucial to preventing terrorist plots in the future. In

According to new IRS emails obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from Judicial Watch, former head of tax exempt groups at the IRS Lois Lerner contacted the Department of Justice in May 2013 about whether tax exempt groups could be criminally prosecuted for "lying" about political activity.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.
