    I think Nuland might be looking for a job as well. Probably won't go much higher than that, though. Hillary will be held as sacrosanct in the end. Besides, she has the balls of several guys in a juju bag somewhere, and they all know it.

    "This is the first hard evidence that the state department did ask for changes to the CIA's original assessment.

    Specifically, they wanted references to previous warnings deleted and this sentence removed: "We do know that Islamic extremists with ties to al-Qa'ida participated in the attack."

    There's little doubt in my mind that this will haunt Hillary Clinton if she decides to run for president, unless she executes some pretty fancy footwork.

    State department spokesperson Victoria Nuland is directly implicated, and the fingerprints of senior White House aides Ben Rhodes and Jay Carney are there as well."


    so even foreign news organizations are coming around and realizing it is a cover up and apologizing for dismissing it at first
    Just more proof that the BBC is a right wing conspiracy machine in league with Faux News.

    The above is a very good point but equally sad point. I know and fear the thousands of media source aligning with political causes. Once that is locked in then "the media" is now "the party". Our democracy has suffered with the advent of radio and television. I am at the point where I will not watch most of the shows on MSNBC because not only are they slanted to the left but they are the left. Fox I agree, is the right and folks this is not good for any of us. The internet may have come at the perfect time so we can toss and mix what the medias have spit out.
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    The prior planning,
    the refusal to see reality,
    the collective illusion of the administration,
    the willingly complicit coma of the press corps,
    the lack of response on that night,
    the lack of proper leadership by the absentee president,
    the willful ignoring of the of the situation by all in the administration,
    the coverup
    and the ongoing lies are all a national disgrace.

    Will the Obamatrons finally see this failed shell of a president for what he is?

    Not trying to be graphic here, but Global Thermo Nuclear War is a little different than a few flaming terrorists. Just helping them to hook up with their Virgins, doncha know.

    Oh! Well, that's different then, isn't it. I guess the Ambassador is still alive and everything is good.
