    Re: State Department memo reveals possible cover-ups, halted investigations

    According to a “CBS This Morning” report out Monday, an internal State Department Inspector General’s memo showed that “several recent investigations were influenced, manipulated, or simply called off.” The memo pointed to eight specific examples, which included alleged sexual assaults and engaging with prostitutes by employees ranking from security officers to a U.S. ambassador.

    The cases highlighted by “CBS This Morning,” pointed to allegations that a State Department security official sexually assaulted foreign nationals hired as embassy guards in Beruit and allegations that members of former Security of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail solicited prostitutes while abroad on official trips.

    There were also details about an “underground drug ring,” which was operating near the embassy in Baghdad and was allegedly supplying State Department security contractors with illegal substances.

    The problem was described as “endemic” in the memo.

    “We were very upset. We expect to see influence, but the degree to which that influence existed, and how high up it went, was very disturbing,” Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator for the office of the Inspector General, the State Department’s internal watchdog agency and a whistleblower on the issue told CBS News’ John Miller. “My heart really went out to the agents in that office because they really want to do the right thing, they want to investigate the cases fully, correctly, accurately. And they can’t.”

    I am definitely not "laughing off the corruption of the IG system"_

    I'm laughing at how such obvious IG corruption is being referred to as "possible corruption" by the MSM_

    Unless I'm mistaken, I think we're in agreement here~
    Oh, ok....I get it now...Thanks for clarifying that for me.....We agree.

    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Not sure what you want, it's CBS. Guess they're no longer good either. When people are trying to cover something up, I guess it's hard to get info on it, cause they're trying to hide it.

    Then you say you haven't found anything yet. Saying "may be a cover-up" is insinuating wrong-doing without any proof.

    This type of Mickey-Mouse reporting from ALL medias (yes, that includes Fox) is disgusting IMO.

    Even though you are correct, without Fox the center and right wings would be at a political disadvantage considering the far-left progressive bias which dominates the rest of news/media/hollywood_

    Unfortunately, this is the current state of the Main Stream Media until it abandons the practice of ideopolitical activism and once again assumes the goals and responsibilities of raw journalism_

    CBS News:U.S. State Department Cover-Ups Range From Prostitution Charges to Drug Ring

    Someone remember to put a fork in Hillary

    ]Uncovered documents show the U.S. State Department may have covered up allegations of illegal behavior ranging from sexual assaults to an underground drug ring.

    CBS News reports that is has unearthed documents from the Diplomatic Security Service (DSS), an internal watchdog agency, that implicate the State Department in a series of misconducts worldwide.

    The memo, reported by CBS News’ John Miller, cited eight specific examples, including allegations that a State Department security official in Beirut “engaged in sexual assaults” with foreign nationals hired as embassy guards and the charge and that members of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s security detail “engaged prostitutes while on official trips in foreign countries” — a problem the report says was “endemic.”

    Former State Department internal investigator Aurelia Fedenisn told CBS News, “We also uncovered several allegations of criminal wrongdoing in cases, some of which never became cases.”

    Often times, other DSS agents were simply told to back off of investigations of high-ranking State Department members. Fedenisn told CBS that “hostile intelligence services” allow criminal behavior to continue....
    well.... duh? If they can honeypot an ambassador, they're going to honeypot an ambassador.

    Meh, 2 years is a long way off. The media will do what they do to ensure this is thoroughly watered down by then. If they don't.....I see phone taps and IRS audits in their future!
