"When House Republicans called a hearing in the middle of their long recess,
you knew it would be something big, and indeed it was: They accidentally blew
the CIA's cover."The purpose of Wednesday's hearing of
the Oversight and Government Reform Committee was to examine security lapses
that led to the killing in Benghazi last month of the U.S. ambassador to Libya
and three others. But in doing so, the lawmakers reminded us why
"congressional intelligence" is an oxymoron." . . . "Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) was the first to unmask the spooks.
"Point of order! Point of order!" he called out as a State Department
security official, seated in front of an aerial photo of the U.S. facilities in
Benghazi, described the chaotic night of the attack. "We're getting
into classified issues that deal with sources and methods that would be totally
inappropriate in an open forum such as this."-- Dana Milbank,
Washington Post Oct. 10, 2012Way to go Congressman Issa.This would be hilarious if is wasn't so sad.
The really serious issue is the take Ms. Cutter has that "Libya is only an
issue because of Romney and Ryan". The administration obviously does not
think the Libya killings are a serious policy failure. Mr. Mad Hatter your take
is somewhat similar. Why shouldn't the Congress of the US investigate as a
very serious matter the rape and killing of a US Ambassador for the first time
in more than 30 years? And, especially, when it appears the "cover
story" is designed from the administration to mislead the American people.
On 9/11 if this administration had been delivering the news, we would have
learned that two spontaneous flights flew into the trade center upon Muslims on
separate planes viewing an on plane movie offensive to the Prophet. Then, the
local state department representative in NY, perhaps the ambassador to the UN,
could have reacted by as was done in Cairo apologizing for the film maker's
exercising his constitutionally protected right to free expression.
People died, Obama lied to cover his butt and discounted their deaths, which
were a direct result of Hillary's incompetence, as a "bump in the
road'This administration is simply horrific in their lack of
moralityThis administrations defrnders are even scarier
Hellooo Salt Lake City, UTCounter Intelligence Salt Lake City,
UTThe quote is from The Washington Post and refers to CIA-related
activities.Congressman Issa is a shill who launches investigations
into anything Obama for political purposes. He does this more out of spite and
anger than trying to find scandal and fraud. When Republicans took over the
House in 2011, Issa said that he would be dedicating himself to investigating
the Obama administration regardless of cost and congressional members time.
Since then, nothing has been uncovered.As for the CIA in Libya,
I'll let the story unfold. Certainly it may be stated that the open
hearing have been premature. It appears to be political posturing got out of
