    Again, you have an active imagination. I am sorry you fail to see the distinction between Watergate and Benghazzi. One was a crime of deliberation; the other an unfortunate event in a troubled part of the world.

    I appreciate the fact that you don't like Obama and you are searching, searching for something that can end your nightmare. Now, if Hillary can't get the deficits under control, you might have a shot in 2020.



    Funny how powerful wishful thinking can be. I hope you brought your security blanket to the pumpkin patch. It still gets cold at night this time of the year.
    You're digging yourself a great big hole to get yourself out of if your guy can't succeed in covering up this smelly affair while you & others are left holding your putzes and looking foolish.

    State Dept: Benghazi Whistleblowers "Lying" About Requesting Clearance To Testify | RealClearPolitics

    Just a question on Benghazi. Since the Office of the Legal Advisor issued the letter with the roadmap for private counsel representing whistleblowers to seek security clearances, has anyone applied for the security clearances?

    PATRICK VENTRELL, STATE DEPARTMENT ACTING SPOKESMAN: Yes. We’ve had an individual who’s been out there on TV making some unfounded and patently false accusations in previous days that she or her partner had contacted the State Department, which they hadn’t. This person suggested on TV that they had been processed for a clearance but – had not been processed for clearance, before she ever had even requested one. And so we repeatedly have this person saying that their – they had a whistleblower who’s been held back from telling their story, and we’re not aware of this individual or anyone who’s asking to tell their story. My understanding is that since these developments overnight, this person has been in contact with us and is now going through the procedures to get a security clearance. But this individual was on TV repeatedly saying that they were being held back from getting a security clearance before they’d even picked up the phone to call us.

    QUESTION: Was that --

    QUESTION: So have they started --

    QUESTION: This person is a lawyer. This person is the lawyer.

    MR. VENTRELL: This is Victoria Toensing.

    QUESTION: Right. Okay.

    MR. VENTRELL: Yeah.

    QUESTION: And are you aware of any State Department employees who have contacted a legal advisor or anyone else saying that they would like to have a lawyer get cleared so that they could (inaudible)?

    MR. VENTRELL: No, but we’re now aware of Ms. Toensing and --

    QUESTION: Well, you were aware of that because she was on TV, right?

    MR. VENTRELL: And now she’s been in touch with us directly to go about the normal procedure.

    QUESTION: You’re saying that she wasn’t just – she was lying --

    MR. VENTRELL: I’m saying she was making false statements that were unfounded that we were --

    QUESTION: Making false statements is lying, isn’t it?

    MR. VENTRELL: We think that --

    QUESTION: Right?

    MR. VENTRELL: False statements are lying, Matt. And so we had somebody who was on national television saying that we were blocking them from getting a security clearance, which was not true. (State Department Briefing, May 2, 2013)
    i wonder what ms toensing's client is gonna say...

    y'know, next week...

    when he or she is sitting in evil darrel issa's comfy chair...

    i wonder if ms toensing has, y'know, the dates on those security clearance requests...

    Yesiree, should get damned interesting one way or the other. If not, then the lid has been tightened, the complete fix is in on both sides, cause one side or the other, as it seemingly stands right now, should take a good shellacking. Somebody is not telling the truth... Inquiring minds sure wanna know, too...I sure do...

    because this does not add up. we have a list of those who resent that their testimony was not more prominent in the report. but we do not know the names of those who wanted to testify but were not permitted to do so. where are they? who are they? do they even exit, or is this more neocon disinformation?

    Did you already know who these people are? Do you know the names of survivors and what they have to say?
    no. and that is surprising since you have released the names and those who purport to offer testimony are nowhere shown

    Surely, you're as interested in learning all the facts as I am. After going far beyond the requirements of his job description, Ty Woods died alone on a rooftop waiting for help that never came. I still want to know why and am willing to wait patiently as facts continue to emerge.
    where is the same concern for EACH and EVERY one of the 4,488 Americans who lost their lives in an iraqi war that never should have been waged. but it is those who are responsible for those deaths who now question those in benghazi
    show the same interest in the lost American lives from that misbegotten misadventure we call the war in iraq
    do that and then you and your side will restore some credibility. but NOT until
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
    once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed

    where is the same concern for EACH and EVERY one of the 4488
    today:

    Two NATO soldiers killed in Afghan 'insider attack' - FRANCE 24

    An Afghan soldier shot dead two soldiers serving with the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force on Saturday, officials said, in the latest "insider attack" to target the coalition.

    "Two International Security Assistance Force service members were killed when an Afghan National Army soldier turned his weapon against ISAF service members in western Afghanistan today," ISAF said in a statement.
    how do you spell jihad?

    5 more americans were killed today when their armored vehicle was blown up in malwand, according to afp

    more than 100 of our soldiers have now been killed over there by our "allies"

    pray for those lost

    Exactly. It's a racially based attack. Thank you for admitting it.

    I'm not in a hole... but if you want to clip this link and save it in your files throw it in my face in six months, feel free. But, it will only waste time and disk space you will never have reason to discuss it again. Its far more likely I will clip it and throw it up in six months (as I did to those telling us how the presidential polls were all wrong and Romney is going win or the fast and furious was going to be the end Obama --- seriously?)

    The problem with me clipping this and bringing it up in six months is that six months from now I will have to explain to people what Benghazi was..... There is nothing of substance here... and those that think this is going to lead to an impeachment are bordering on delusional.

    The problem with Cons is they are good at creating controversial/shady deals, but they aren't good at understanding equivalence. Ya got nothin here, except wishful thinking. Call us when real news organizations are carrying this... thus far all posts have been from NewsMax and CNS. Again, political porn isn't good for your mind or soul.

    That peculiar reasoning of yours explains a great deal about your comments in general.

    Was the Hillary picture a gender attack?

    Ya got the classic dodges down, I'll give ya that.
    As for 6 months from now, given what we already know at this point that you won't acknowledge, is there really any chance atball you'd admit your guy & his SofS effed up big time?
    Or to look at it another way, what would it take for you to finally admit it?
