    It's on. As the White House grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama's apologists are gearing up for battle. Put on your hip-waders. Grab those tar buckets. Get ready for Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers.

    Capitol Hill hearings this Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack by jihadists will feature three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya and highest-ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time of the Benghazi jihad attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency's Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top security officer in Libya.

    Nordstrom first testified last fall about how State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound. Hicks and Thompson are coming forward publicly for the first time this week with more damning evidence contradicting Team Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's claims about the administration's response the night of the attack and in the ensuing months of cover-ups.

    According to the House Oversight Committee, Hicks reportedly will refute Team Obama's claims that nobody was told to stand down and that all military resources available were used in the rescue efforts. As Special Forces prepared to fly from Tripoli to Benghazi to save lives during the attacks, Hicks says the team received a phone call from the U.S. Special Operations Command Africa telling them "you can't go" and that the decision was "purely political."

    The State Department press office already has accused Victoria Toensing, attorney for one of the Benghazi whistleblowers, of "lying" about administration pressure on her clients. Left-wing operatives funded by billionaire George Soros have taken to Twitter to mock reports of fear and intimidation among the new witnesses. White House press secretary Jay Carney continues to sing "Long, Long Ago" and deny all wrongdoing.

    And one anonymous State Department official told Fox News reporter James Rosen that Hicks and Thompson have "axes to grind."

    Gee, who wouldn't have an "axe to grind" if your bosses lied to you, blocked you from saving your co-workers and friends, and lied shamelessly and repeatedly to the American public about the reasons for their deaths?

    It's this corrupt and vengeful White House that wields the sharpest axes and biggest grindstones. The casualty count in Obama's war on whistleblowers is double-digit.

  2. All hands on deck! They have to jump on this quickly. MSM in full wagon circling mode. Leftist hit squads digging for any dirt. Spin artists at the ready. Those asking questions must be destroyed.

    As long as this tactic works for them they will continue to use it. If you don't like the message, attack the messenger.

    Well, I heard they are all card-carrying members of the NRA!
  5. Rep. Elijah Cummings, the panel’s top Democrat, used his opening statement to offer a rebuttal of what he denounced as “irresponsible allegations” that the Administration withheld military assets that might have made a difference. He accused Issa of suggesting a high-level “conspiracy” grouping top military officers who have testified that the Pentagon did everything it could.

    “I am not questioning the motives of the witnesses,” Cummings said. “I am questioning the motives of those who want to use their statements for political purposes.”

    Well, Mr. Cummings, you silly fuck, it became political when your boy and his bitch came up with a silly assed video as an excuse to cover it up because Dear Leader had a election coming up and didn't want to look bad..
  6. The administration's talking points, as dutifully reported by ABC News, are that the CIA came up with the video explanation and that the State Department internal investigation said they did everything possible.

    First, recall that the cIA at the time was headed by one of the most political generals in military history, David Petraeus, and that the administration had huge leverage over him because of his affair with that woman. No doubt the republicans will not go near this aspect of it, because t o do so would mean they would have to get up off their knees in front of the military brass. We saw from the Valery Plame affair how politicized the CIA has become. It would not have been hard to find someone there willing to do the White house's bidding.

    As for the State Department whitewash, it is pretty clear that they either did a shoddy job or did what they were expected to do and protect Hillary.

    This whole thing is an outrage, but the media will play it as a one day story and try to move on.
  7. Quite frankly the world would be a better place if good ole Rep mohammad cummings lynched himself.

    What a piece of dog shit.
  8. True but history won't let it go
    Benghazi will be the legacy for what obama is known .

    That and the cluster fuck known as Obama care.
  10. If only, but history is what historians write in books and what the contemporary media record confirms. It bears only a passing resemblance to truth. Unless the republicans can get their act together, and we all know they won't, Benghazi will be a footnote at best.
