Exclusive: Security at the State Department´s Benghazi compound was so dire that another contractor was brought in to clean up the mess just two weeks before the 2012 terror attack – and was later pressured to keep quiet by a government bureaucrat under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to two men from the American security company. Brad Owens and Jerry Torres, of Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions, say they faced pressure to stay silent and get on the same page with the State Department with regard to the security lapses that led to the deaths of four Americans. They spoke exclusively with Fox News for

Hillary´s ( and 0bama´s) "Neverending Story". until she is perp walked before Congress and made to tell the truth to the families of the four men needlessly slain and US. Obviously, the security contractors from then aren't afraid of the big bad wolf at this time.
That Ms. Visintainer at the State Dept. continued to insist that our embassy guards not be armed, AFTER the Benghazi attack, tells us just how misguided and incompetent the employees at the Department of State have become.
The difference, at this point, that it makes is this:"Both the function and the honor of Sec.State of the USA must not be whored out to enrich the person holding that office contrary to the interests of the people of the USA and in particular must not be sold to the explicit adversaries of said citizens in a fashion which which might accrue to the benefit of the adversaries of said citizens and to the personal profit of said office holder.
I ain´t no lawyer....but...how´s that ?
Hillzilla has and would continue to sell the coins off of her mothers eyes if there was a hint of profit.
Grifters gonna grift.
She doesn´t even have any respect for the honest Marxism which is only her vehicle of convenience.
It appears Mr. Owens is gunning for Ms. Visintainer. Get ´em. I´d say rip her heart out but it´s obvious she doesn´t have one. In other news, there is brave and then there is foolhardiness. Foolhardiness in this case would have resulted in the loss of employment of maybe thousands of men who were protecting our embassies and preventing other Benghazi-like situations from happening. The org rots from the head down and it had obviously reached Ms. Visintainer´s level. Waiter send another bottle of Thunderbird´s best to the table with the two ... I believe, women, in pantsuits.
There exists a VERY strong "Etiquette" which prevents each new administration from prosecuting the previous one. Breaking with this rule would invite continuous prosecution of each party upon the former.
Suks that the Marxist Dems are the 99% beneficiaries of this comity.
Perhaps The Donald may be the iconoclast who breaks this unspoken rule.
I´m weary of stand up guys reporting something important....YEARS too late to matter. We have the computer guy with some dirt on Debbie W. Schultz PRIOR to an important presidential election, but everyone keeps it quiet!!! Now we find this out AFTER she could have been elected president. Too dang late to be declared a hero by me!!!
NBC insiders are going to need some serious convincing about Megyn Kelly’s new show. If TV critics are confused by what one called her “Bride of Frankenstein” morning show, Page Six hears that veteran network producers are baffled by the decision to make her “Megyn Kelly Today” a “politics-free zone.” In the run up to Monday’s premiere in the 9 a.m. “Today” slot, Kelly — who built her reputation on hard-hitting Washington coverage, not to mention her public spat with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump — said that she’s “not a political animal and I never have been.” During the launch episode she announced that
Passed over for higher command, U.S. Navy Adm. Scott Swift on Monday announced his unexpected retirement as commander of the Pacific Fleet. "I have been informed by the Chief of Naval Operations that I will not be his nominee to replace Adm. (Harry) Harris as the Commander, U.S. Pacific Command,” Swift wrote in a prepared statement (Snip) On Jan. 31, the cruiser Antietam ran aground on a Japanese shoal. Less than five months later, the cruiser Lake Champlain bashed a South Korean fishing boat. Then came the June 17 destroyer Fitzgerald crash with a merchant vessel and, on Aug. 21, the collision of an oil tanker with
A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the playing of the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys linked arms in the middle of the University of Phoenix Stadium field in Glendale, Ariz., and collectively took a knee before the song was played. The Arizona Cardinals linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel in a show of unity. By the time the pop star Jordin Sparks began singing the song, the Cowboys, who were joined in kneeling by the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, had moved to the sideline, linking arms while standing. The crowd, which had booed as the visiting C
Chelsea Manning, a former American soldier jailed for leaking troves of classified information, said on Monday that she was banned from entering Canada due to criminal convictions in the United States. Manning had tried to cross at the official border office at Lacolle, Quebec, on Friday. On Monday, she posted a letter from Canadian immigration officials to her Twitter account that said she was not admitted because she was convicted of offences deemed equivalent to treason in Canada. "So, I guess Canada has permanently banned me? Denied entry b/c of convictions similar to "treason" offence," she wrote.
We may not know her name, but this woman made history on Monday. The woman, who has asked to keep her identity private, became the first female to successfully complete the Marines´ infantry officer course in Quantico, Virginia. “I am proud of this officer and those in her class? who have earned the infantry officer MOS,” Marine Corps Commandant Gen. Robert Neller said in a press release. (Tweet) The lieutenant was one of 88 Marines to complete the grueling 13-week course which "trains and educates newly selected infantry and ground intelligence officers in leadership, infantry skills, and character required to serve
Liberals are celebrating the links they see between the antagonists of the new Star Trek and what they believe to be the ideologies of President Trump and his supporters. The “connections” aren’t difficult to find, as co-executive producer Aaron Harberts told Rolling Stone that the “Trump phenomenon” was “front and center in our minds” in creating the new series. In Sunday’s two premiere episodes of Star Trek: Discovery, a Klingon, T’Kuvma, tries to unify the Klingons against Starfleet’s mission for multiculturalism. To sum it up, he believes in isolationism and racial purity…and taking over the world.
As the world carries on with its normal routine despite his prediction that the world would end this past Saturday, Christian numerologist David Meade clarified that the end of the world is still imminent. Specifically, Meade says the world´s end will begin October 15, 2017. That´s when, Meade says, "Jupiter crosses the womb region of Virgo." "That´s when the action starts," he continued. "Hold on and watch -- wait until the middle of October and I don´t believe you´ll be disappointed." Clarifying his earlier prediction, Meade says the "mainstream" got it wrong in thinking something "visible" would happen on September 23.
President Donald Trump was back on the attack on Monday, saying that “many” fans booed those players who took a knee and who spoke out during the weekend´s NFL games. "Many people booed the players who kneeled yesterday (which was a small percentage of total). These are fans who demand respect for our Flag!" Trump tweeted the morning after an NFL game day that saw players or owners on nearly all of the teams take action or issue statements against the president. "The issue of kneeling has nothing to do with race. It is about respect for our Country, Flag and National Anthem. NFL must respect this!" Trump
A Latino student at Cornell University overheard somebody chanting, “build a wall,” so now the student government passed a resolution condemning “hate speech.” Whatever that is. Seriously — what is hate speech? Read the First Amendment, and it’s not mentioned there. In fact, the whole concept of the First Amendment was in order that government could not intrude on a citizen’s right to express speech deemed by some as offensive — a sort of constitutional right to say hateful things. Cornell students — and not just students, but the ones who serve on the student government and therefore, ought to know better — just don’t
Senate Republicans revised their last-ditch Obamacare Monday in an 11-hour bid to win over key holdouts, after prospects of passing a repeal bill dimmed significantly over the weekend. An analysis released by Sen. Bill Cassidy, Louisiana Republican and lead sponsor, said bill writers turned the dials enough to give states such as Alaska and Maine an overall boost in funding through 2026, after independent analyses suggested those states would lose out under the initial bill. It’s unclear if independent analysts will agree with the data calculated by the Health and Human Services Department. Mr. Cassidy and his main co-sponsor,
President Trump accused Iran of collaborating with North Korea to strengthen their missile technology Saturday evening in a Twitter post criticizing the 2015 nuclear agreement between the U.S., Iran and five other nations. "Iran just test-fired a Ballistic Missile capable of reaching Israel," Trump wrote. "They are also working with North Korea. Not much of an agreement we have!" (Snip) Trump posted the tweet hours after Iran claimed to have successfully tested a new ballistic missile capable of reaching parts of the Middle East, including Israel. The missile, known as the Khoramshahr, has a range of 1,250 miles and is
Iran’s provocative actions have threatened the free world, Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman said Saturday after Tehran claimed to have tested a ballistic missile with multiple warheads capable of hitting Israel. “This Iranian missile launch is an act of provocation and defiance against the United States and its allies, as well as an attempt to test them,” Liberman said, (Snip) The new ballistic missile has a range of 2,000 km. The distance by air between Israel and Iran is 1,800 km. (Video) Iran said Saturday it would keep developing its arsenal, despite US pressure to stop. The United States has imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran,
Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, ripped into President Donald Trump on Sunday for wasting his platform and his time attacking NFL players protesting by kneeling during the national anthem. “The president has two very valuable assets: his time and his voice. This president wastes it when he engages with things like this,” Rove said Sunday during a Fox News panel discussion on Trump´s recent controversial attacks of NFL players who protest for civil rights by taking a knee during the national anthem. Rove added that the president often spends time he ought to be
John McCain revealed his doctors gave him a ´very poor prognosis´ when he first found out about the rare and aggressive brain cancer that he continues to battle. The Arizona senator said his doctors told him at the time that his condition was ´very, very serious´. ´So I just said, "I understand." Now we´re going to do what we can, get the best doctors we can find and do the best we can. And at the same time, celebrate with gratitude a life well-lived,´ McCain said during an interview on 60 Minutes, that aired Sunday night. McCain underwent surgery in July
N.F.L. players and owners, already on edge after critical statements made by President Trump at a rally on Friday night, woke up on game day to another series of tweets from the president, this time calling for football fans to boycott N.F.L. games unless the league fires or suspends players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. (Snip) Steelers Won’t Participate in Anthem The Pittsburgh Steelers team does not plan to emerge from the locker room in Chicago until after the national anthem. “We’re not going to play politics,” Tomlin told CBS. “We’re football players, we’re football coaches. We’re not participating
The entire Pittsburgh Steelers team remained in the locker room during the national anthem, with the exception of one player: Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva, who plays offensive tackle for the Steelers. While the rest of his teammates remained in the locker room, Villanueva stood in the tunnel holding his helmet in his left hand and holding his right hand over his heart as the anthem played. WATCH: (Videos/Tweet) Villaneuva played in college at West Point Military Academy before going on to become an Army Ranger. He served three tours in Afghanistan and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor.
President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday. Early Sunday morning, Trump continued his Twitter tirade and called for an NFL boycott. ´If NFL fans refuse to go to games until
CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance. In May 2016, speaking at a campaign rally in Kentucky,
The recent behavior of a number of spoiled, privileged, ungrateful NFL players is unacceptable to most Americans, NFL fans or not. (snip) It would be so satisfying if a group of patriotic fans to have at the ready a flash mob of singers at a stadium game. If the players "take a knee" to show their disdain for the flag and the national anthem, these talented souls would wait until just before the kick-off and then stand up and belt out the national anthem themselves. Chances are hundreds of those in attendance would join them. Then they would exit the
As more and more leaks about the ongoing “Russian collusion” witch hunt by Robert Mueller appear in print, it seems to me that if Russia had been trying to erode our faith in our institutions, the Deep State is accomplishing what Russia failed to do. The Obama claque’s efforts were initially intended to help Clinton when they thought she would win and no one would know about their crimes. Then they continued the unlawful spying to cover up their role in the worst case of misuse of federal power in our history, to effect the removal or emasculation of the President,
Giants owners John Mara and Steve Tisch had a harsh reaction to President Trump’s called for NFL owners to fire players who refuse to stand for the national anthem. “Comments like we heard last night from the president are inappropriate, offensive and divisive,” Mara and Tisch said in a statement Saturday. “We are proud of our players, the vast majority of whom use their NFL platform to make a positive difference in our society.” Trump initially addressed the issue during a campaign rally speech in Alabama for Senator Luther Strange, asserting that owners should fire “any son of a b—h”
In June 1979, the Bee Gees were on top of the world. Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year. The year before, it spent 24 weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard charts. And now the band was playing 60,000-seat arenas across America. Disco was king, and the Bee Gees — brothers Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, clad in white suits and flashing gold chains — were its ambassadors. At the start of the tour, Maurice got hold of a T-shirt that made everyone
Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin indicated Sunday night that he did not want offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva to stand for the national anthem, instead of sitting it out with the rest of his teammates. Villanueva, a former Army Ranger who served three tours in Afghanistan, was the only Steelers player to stand for the anthem. While Villanueva stood in the tunnel, hand over his heart, the rest of the team remained in the locker room in protest of President Trump’s comments that players who kneel during the national anthem should be fired. Tomlin said in a post-game press conference
Arizona Sen. John McCain insists his vote against a GOP plan to repeal ObamaCare is not payback for Donald Trump demeaning the former POW’s heroism during the Vietnam War when the president remarked, “I like people who weren’t captured.” “If I took offense at everybody who has said something about me, or disparaged me or something like that — life is too short. You’ve got to move on,” McCain, a Navy pilot who spent more than five years in a North Vietnamese prison, told CBS’s “60 Minutes” in an interviewed that aired Sunday. “And on an issue of this importance
