Benghazi: Was a “stand down” order given?

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

On radio this morning, Glenn shared some exclusive information TheBlaze has learned ahead of the House Oversight Committee’s latest Benghazi hearing on Wednesday.

“We have exclusive breaking news from TheBlaze,” Glenn said. “We were the first media outlet and we don’t care, honestly, about being first. We care about being accurate.”

When it comes to Benghazi, TheBlaze has been out in front of this story, while so many news outlets failed to cover even the most basic facts.

“I will tell you that on the Benghazi thing, I came out three days into it, four days, and I said, ‘This is what I believe is happening,’” Glenn said. “And I laid the story out, and so far, everything but the gunrunning is panning out. And I was told by a source last night that the gunrunning thing is a foregone conclusion, everyone in Washington, they all know it was gunrunning to Syrian rebels, which are now headed by the Muslim Brotherhood guy from Dallas, Texas. The circle is complete.”

“Our sources tell us that one the issues that will be cleared up tomorrow is whether or not Department of Defense was ordered to ‘stand-down’ and by whom,” Glenn explained. “This is important because a number of media outlets have reported that a Special Forces team was an hour away when the attack occurred, and could’ve been on the scene before the second attack on the compound took place. TheBlaze has been told by two sources that there was a ‘stand down order’ given to that Special Forces team.”

Glenn then pieced together the information that TheBlaze has uncovered thus far:

If you recall, we were told that three private contractors who were killed along with Ambassador Stevens were just down the road from the compound in an annex. They heard shots and explosions, and ran down to help the Ambassador and staff. Those men were killed in the firefight.

But we are now hearing from sources that two of the three contractors actually had commandeered a plane in Tripoli when they heard about the attack, and flew to Benghazi. We are also hearing that there was a security detail of approximately 15 men inside the compound at the time of the attack, and they were ordered to stand down and evacuate. It is unclear, at this point, if they were told to leave the ambassador behind. And it is not clear if they were military personnel or State Department Security.

We understand this group had to fight their way out of the compound and make their way to the CIA Annex down the road where they waited for more than 20 hours to be transported out of the area. There is more to this story. A number of them were injured, and they were told that they were to be taken directly to Walter Reed Hospital, and ordered not to speak publicly about the ordeal. To date, their identities have not been revealed.

If the media had done its job eight months ago when the attack first occurred, we probably wouldn’t be having this conversation right now. “You are not going to be able to wait six months before you get the truth,” Glenn said. “And gee… [the media] could have easily done this story, and it would have changed the course of the election. But instead, we now have to go through the scandal for the next three years.”

“May I ask you, if you have not become a member of TheBlaze, I have this morning authorized the expansion of our investigative team in a different direction than most would, and we sure could use your support,” Glenn concluded. “If you have not subscribed to TheBlaze, I would ask that you subscribe to The Blaze at TheBlaze.com/TV.

    The truth of Benghazi:

    The Obama administration lied, denied, vilified, and continues to do so.

    Four men died.

    Justice is still denied unto their families to this day.

  • http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery)

    In any other generation, the scandal of Benghazi would have brought the current administration down across the board for all of those involved or even suspected of involvement. 

    The cover up, lies, denials, accusations and criminal offenses shows just how deep corruption has spread within the administration. They only care for their own positions, power and control and not for the people or those who serve under them.

    Obama’s administration lied

    Four brave men died.

    Justice for their families has been denied.

    Obama is covering this up order these people to shut their mouths on this so he could get back into the White House. I bet he was the one that order the stand down it had to be otherwise the truth would have come out sooner. Don’t be shocked if this whistle blower is found dead yes I believe Obama will kill to keep his power.

     Gulf of Tonkin? Illegal Bombings in Cambodia? Iran Contra? All the CIA-led military coups, or the direct military invasions of Latin American and Caribbean countries and elsewhere? WMDs? a few low-level prosecutions, but no administration went down for any of these, all of which are arguably much worse. four people died. sad,yes. tragic yes. but does your heart hurt every time and IED kills a few soldiers, or a drone purposefully/accidentally destroys villages and hundreds and thousands of “innocent” Iraqis and Afghanis,” or kills an American citizen without due process? I am sure it does–but do you erupt in rage at the people or policies that initiated these mad wars, that put all of these people and their families in harms because of a lie? Obama is no better or no worse than bush who was no better and no worse than his predecessor. basically, since reagan, every president has been a moderate republican in political philosophy, they just didn’t say it. the only difference has been on social-cultural issues and who benefitted the most from government largesse. Look at the govt spending history, look at all the military invasions, look at the tax history–taxes have continued to shrink even into the Obama admin as long-term overall trend. Look at the deregulation history. All of us have spent our lives within a paranoid, colonialist, securitized, militarized state apparatus, Obama is simply the latest potentate. 
     
    The economic problems facing our country today have been in the works since the 1970s, since the advent of deindustrialization, which actually began even earlier. Our biggest employer today is WalMart: not a recipe for economic success. We need jobs for the uneducated masses, like Sam Fisher, who can make decent livings and live the American Dream of buying iphones and a new car every few years, with enough money leftover so that mom can homeschool the kids and keep them away from all the communist propaganda embedded in our public school system.

    First of all, it’s pathetic that there even has to be whistle-blowers in this fiasco.
    There’s no integrity, no honesty, no accountability….just a ‘who gives a shit’ attitude in DC – and it starts at the top. You know, where the buck stops??

    Second – what’s going to be done??  Honestly, what’s going to happen if and when all the truth comes out??

    It’s a travesty that the Commander In Chief went to bed more concerned about his campaign trip to Las Vegas to hobnob with Hollywood stars and glitterati than he was about the events in Benghazi. For the order to have been given to stand down rather than rescue our personnel in the field constitutes gross dereliction of duty and is an impeachable offense. The actions of the CIC, State, and senior military commanders in this episode has been nothing short of disgraceful. No commander leaves his men in the field as long as he has a choice and their were good choices available to them here. Don’t expect obama to come clean on the issue. He hasn’t spoken the truth to the American people about himself, his friends, and his political alliances at any time so don’t expect him to start now. The man began as a fraud and it continues because the elites in the House and Senate aren’t willing to rock the gravy boat they’re riding in. They’d rather see the country go down rather than give up their perks, power, and insider trading paths to wealth.

    Good, so even the Obamunists agree with us…Benghazi is on a par with the other events haymrkt listed. Gulf of Tonkin facts did not come out until 2005, but we now know that tens of thousand of deaths in Vietnam are squarely to blame on Johnson. Iran Contra was an effort to free American hostages. Contrary to the liberal mantra, there were WMDs in Iraq, and their past aggression on their neighbors and deaths of the Kurds supports the fact that Hussein was willing to use any means necessary to achieve his goals.(didn’t do your homework on that one). Drone strikes are military tools like any other, and innocents will be killed. At least no one LIED about that fact to anyone else.
    There is no moral equivalency defense. You either must answer for your offenses or not. Obama definitely must answer for what happened that night. Going to bed and intentionally leaving your citizens to DIE is inexcusable. Sorry but we are not responsible for the deaths of innocents in other countries whose fates are wrought by their own hapless governments.

    The real story here is the media. Is there nothing that these people will not cover up for the Obama administration? It’s shocking. They are worse than Pravda. At least there were probably some people in the days of the Soviet Union who WANTED to tell the truth. There appears to be no such impulse in these acolytes. Jay Carney is an embarrassment to the nation, and the worst press secretary ever. (I’m sure Robert Gibbs is appreciative, much like Jimmy Carter who is no longer considered the worst president ever.)

    What you have said is totally irrelevant to the issue at hand. Should this whole situation be ignored because LBJ lied about the Gulf of Tonkin incident and wasn’t punished for it? If you think Obama is a moderate Republican in political philosophy, you need a course in political science. I’m sure that idea is rooted in the fact that he didn’t immediately cut and run in Iraq and Afghanistan. Be patient. He’s getting out as quickly as he can with no regard to victory or the future. Once you become president, you realize that in the real world you can’t do what politicians promise in order to be elected. Obama has no clue how to create an environment that will encourage job growth (unlike Reagan and George W. Bush or even John Kennedy). But again, this is not relevant to whether or not our government ignored the pleas for help in Benghazi both before and after the attack and covered up the truth to fit a political narrative. That’s the issue. And for the record, our military goes out of its way to avoid civilian casualties (sometimes to the detriment of our own troops) unlike the people they are fighting who use civilians as human shields and purposely target civilians. You appear to want to give this administration a pass on Benghazi because “everybody does it?” Sorry, it doesn’t work that way.

    From the public info we already have, it looks like Barack Obama, Leon Panetta and Hillary Clinton (all three) acted inappropriately TOGETHER. Their actions put in danger thirty Americans who are still incognito, and got four Americans killed.

    Before, during and after the “incident”, these three characters and their delegates lied, obfuscated and deflected to influence an election – and to hide their actions. And they are all still refusing to freely give a truthful accounting.

    In other words, a conspiracy of TREASON at the top level of the federal government. Hillary and Leon have already skittered away, and just the other day Barack was musing whether it is time for him pack and go home (yes it is).

    Obama is not going to resign, nor will he be impeached. Any who has the power to stop him is either on his side, paid off, or afraid of being killed in a freak accident or framed for a crime they didn’t commit. The only people who would stand even a slight chance at stopping him would be we the pepole (which is actually why the Founding Fathers gave us the 2nd Amendment), but unfortunately, this is exactly what the Government wants, so that they can then impose National Martial Law snd abolish the Constitution once and for all. Americans have 0 chance of defeating the Government with our crude outdated low tech weapons, and if given the opportunity, the Government will absolutely use any and all means to ensure their survival, even if it means wiping out the majority of the American people with chemical, biological, and/or nuclear weapons to force us into submission.

    to me this is becoming ever-so-clear that amb. stevens was murdered by a white-house/state department-driven order.  why?  so he wouldn’t be able to testify as to the whole of his mission there.  

    not paranoid, but logic-based.  

    based upon what?  the facts on this white house.  their years long history now, of lying flatly on anything they need deflected off of them (illegal and unconstitutional acts) and not small itty-bitty lies.  BIG LIES.  lies that cost lives.  the admin. does not issue declarations of war on the american people, it just goes to war.

    That’s why the White House issues talking points via Media Matters to all the news agencies. If you control the news, you control the people. That’s the only way Barry Hussein can climb out of the ditch he’s driven into…act like it never happened or that he never knew.

     I believe that Glenn, a few days or less after Benghazi said if memory serves me, that there is more as to what the Ambassador was doing in that location at that time and it had something to do with finding weapons. Will I guess Glenn was not to far off from the real facts. It’s to bad that this administration does not know or care enough to protect us or our citizens abroad.

     He stated that Ambassador Stevens was running guns to the Syrians, at the request of this administration.  That MIGHT be what the coverup is about.

    I blame the heifer pig Candy (how appropriate) Crowley for handing the election to Obozo. She did her assigned job that night: give Obozo cover when needed. When Romney went on the attack about Benghazi, piglet said an out and out lie and stopped the conversation there. And then Obozo, KNOWING it was a lie and that HE watched 4 people die, asked her to ‘say it a little louder?”

    CNN should fire the cow, but that won’t happen. The media is so corrupt that they buy the line of Jay Carney and believe that this is ‘an old story’. And by the way (in my shrillest voice) ‘what does it matter NOW?’

    A pox on Obozo and Shrillary. They watched men die and did nothing about it…

    My response was to snowleopard’s remark that “in any other generation…” I wasn’t making the argument that because others in the past were not prosecuted or held accountable for crimes then therefore Obama should get a pass. Everyone should be held accountable. But part of my point is that the uproar is more about Obama than it is about what he has supposedly done or not done. Everything Obama does is viewed by GB and his followers as pernicious and antiAmerican. If this was someone you supported you’d find a way to rationalize it, much like Time4Dogs does below. Ultimately, I agree, if Obama and his administration lied, we should know, and he should be held accountable. But what then? What does knowing the truth about Benghazi really get us? 

    As for the political science lesson, I don’t know what to tell you, my friend. Obama is a Clintonian–New Democrat–neoliberal. His healthcare plan forces people to buy insurance from a private company. He bailed out Wall Street and the banks. (see reagan and savings and loan industry) He hired Larry Summers, the architect of some of the pivotal pieces of market deregulation legislation in the late 1990s that ultimately helped create and exacerbate the 2008 economic collapse. Just today, on the front page of the Wall Street Journal–of all places– there was an article about how in Obama’s proposed budget there is a plan to limit the number of years people can live off govt rent subsidies and to also tie those subsidies to a work requirement. Where’s the blaze on that report? Name a legit political scientist that calls Obama a progressive or anything other than a typical neoliberal. 
    As for the military, Obama has fallen in lockstep with the military industrial complex.Cutting and running? He doubled down. And now we’re hearing the warm drums beating over Syria, North Korea, and Iran. The sooner we get out of Afghanistan, the better. We have no business there. What is your definition of victory?

    I can tell you one thing, if that had been my son killed I would have been at the White House and demanded answers to my questions.  I am very surprised the families have not come forward.  I really don’t see that anything will be done.  The media has a great way of pushing everything under the rug and they will most certainly come to Obama’s rescue and make sure nothing comes out negative about him.  He is on course for being the next world leader, I can just feel it.  He is bringing America down as fast as he can and all the Democrats are helping him.  Most people just don’t or won’t see what is happening.  Within this year a real change is coming and America will be gone.  It has certainly changed for the worse these last four years, imagine the next four.  Sad…..

    In your previous comment you said everyone since Reagan had been a moderate Republican not a neoliberal. Obamacare is a perfect example. No Republican of any stripe would have proposed such a monstrosity. Obamacare is just the first step toward a single payer system. He could not have gotten something like that passed. I don’t really care whether you call Obama a progressive or what label you want to put on him. The most moderate Republican looks like a far-right guy compared to him. Your statement about the military industrial complex is laughable. As I said, it’s not as easy as he thought it was to disengage from these military situations. Yes, he doubled down in Afghanistan (big mistake), but that was done for political purposes because that was the “good” war, and he has never had any intention of staying in Afghanistan or Iraq to achieve any purpose. At this point, I would get out of Afghanistan because it’s a lost cause. If they had continued the Bush approach, they would have had less casualties but not sure the outcome would have been any different. Iraq is another matter. His only real strategy there was to get out asap. Victory would have been a defeat of the Taliban and a stable government in Afghanistan. In Iraq it would be similar–stability in the country and a reliable ally. Things were going in the right direction when Bush left, but have gone downhill since it became obvious that we were leaving regardless of the situation on the ground. I think you are mistaken about Obama’s desire to get into a military engagement in North Korea, Syria, or Iran. I don’t believe he’ll do much more than send a few arms into Syria. I also don’t believe he’ll lift a finger to stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Unless North Korea does something stupid (and possibly even if they  do), there will be no military engagement with them. His “red-line” statements about chemical weapons in Syria were nothing more than empty rhetoric. He has no desire to use our military power. We have already informed Europe that they better upgrade their military capability because they can no longer depend on us. I don’t have any desire to intervene in Syria, and I can see no circumstance under which there would be American troops going in there. I find it kind of funny that you believe Obama wants to go to war. This is the same guy who is preventing the upgrading of our nuclear deterrent and wants to disarm unilaterally. Obama may not be progressive enough to suit you, but I’m sure you’ll be a lot happier with what he does in the rest of his term than I will. 

    What does knowing the truth about Benghazi really get us? The truth, accountability, information about what really happened for the families of those who were killed, and hopefully the assurance that something like this is never going to happen again. Anyone with an ounce of common sense knows that someone should have tried to get in there and help those people. This thing went on for 7 hours. Americans don’t sit back while people are being killed, and say “well we don’t have enough information, etc. to take any action.” Why were our people left there when the British and the Red Cross had already pulled out because it was too dangerous, and why did they refuse to send more security and pull out security that was there? That kind of incompetence needs to be exposed. Then there’s the matter of the cover-up and the lie about the video. If this had been done in a Republican administration it would have been on the front page of the NY Times everyday, and there would have already been congressional hearings. These people died because our government ignored the pleas for more security, and then left our people to die when they were attacked. I would think any American would want to know exactly how something like this could happen and why few in the news media seem to care.

    Fail.

    Chem, bio & nuke weapons are considered “WMDs”.

    Iraq HAD chem weapons, and Hussein decisively used them against the Kurdish population (and, I assert, on our troops).  This is reason enough to have gone in unrestrained and murderously aggressive at the first instant we suspected their use in the Gulf War.

    Sadly, the WMDs were real, just not the NUKES we were supposed to be seeking.  Further, bio warfare can be as simple as throwing a dead body (human or animal) into a supply of drinking water, and on that level, it seems that the use of over 700 oil wells set ablaze would fit the definition of both a crime against humanity (an “atrocity” by definition), and an act of environmental terrorism – in other words, an act very closely related to an act of overt, intentional biological warfare… in other words, use of a WMD tactic.

    Regarding your “not a mantra” comment, you can’t have both a successful political movement whose strength is based in a slogan, then also have that slogan not be considered propaganda.  Repeated oft enough, it becomes part of the Zeitgeist, and in that way, perception is reality (even though the position is falsely premised).

    However, I agree with you that as a political issue, the mantra of the left (“Bush lied, people died”) never went away, and in that regard the left was successful.

    Don’t co-opt the language, please.  If you mean that there were no nukes/yellow cake/document trails of such, then say that.  

    But there were WMDs, Iraq under Hussein did indeed make use of both chemical and biological attacks, and the mantra of the left is clearly effective only with people who aren’t politically literate.

    Glenn Beck warned everyone beginning @ 2011 exactly what was coming.  It is amazing so many ignored his edification, or just did not care.  The character who mans the Oval Office is nothing more than a puppet carrying out his orders from above.  He announced his mandate to change the character of the U.S.A. and has done so.  Research the Limbaugh Thereum which explains the reason all he does is campaign, he never governs.  If he governed he would have to be responsible for the outcome of his decisions.  Remember his exposure and learning from an early age was Muslim and Communist.  The facts are there.  Until the leader of the Democratic Party and all the characters hand-picked to form his administration are out of the picture, there is no way this country is going to recover.  The facts are there.  Act.  Benghazi will prove the corruption of the administration.

    Even more atrocious than the obvious coverup, is the fact of what is already known about what Obama did do. He in essence played the fiddle while Rome burned. Obama was contacted and apprised of the situation and he did nothing. That is the scandal.He had other more important things to do. He had to get ready for his Hollywood trip to make more campaign money. Don’t any of you have your priorities.straight? Obviously Obama does, right:

If Carney is a republican, there would have been a huge uproar about what he said

    Did O plan to exchange the “kidnapped” Ambassador for the blind sheik and all the Gitmo prisoners?
    Ask yourself: why was an ambassador put in a remote and dangerous post? Why was security stripped during the month before the attack? Why was a stand down order given during an attack? How did O&H “instantly” release an apology video? Why was Susan Rice telling such an obvious lie? 
    Headline: “O the Great negotiator frees his Ambassador and closes Gitmo as promised.” It would have been the Mother of all October surprises.
    Thank God some courageous seals blew the plan with their heroic defense.
    Bush would have been rightly run out of office if this happened on his watch, but we have an affirmative action president, so…move along…nothing to see here.

    Does anyone really think that Moochie could//would insert herself into high level politics?

    I am/was not a supporter of GW Bush. I voted for him but, only because he was running against Al Gore and John Kerry. I don’t really care for either party.
    Looking at this from the spectrum of an Independent voter, Obama’s administration is going to be viewed from a historical standpoint, as the most anti-American President this country has ever had
    This has nothing to do with his race, creed, religion or education. This comes from being a U.S. Citizen and, seeing the garbage he and his party has attempted to subject us to.
    There’s a reason Jimmy Carter loves Pinnochiobama so much. Jimmy can only be viewed as the 2nd worse president we’ve ever had, now.

    Consider this much, if she did, she would be the perfect messenger for ‘quiet deliveries’ as no one would assume she would do so.

    Recall she is the one who stated the nation ‘must change our ways, traditions, etc’ and hates America as much as Obama.

    And when will Obama step down? He makes Nixon look innocent…..Obama and his narcissistic personality will never step down and Congress is so corrupt they will never impeach him. So now, what can be done to rid this Nation of the terrorist in office??? He supports the Muslim Brotherhood…..and I believe he was responsible for the Ambassador’s death and cover-up of Benghazi for political reasons. No one will ever convince me that Romney in reality, didn’t win the election, but because of voter fraud and corruption Obama now reigns and continues his terrorism in America.

    True, she is the least likely. But I can’t imagine her taking on such a responsibility. More likely that someone in the State Department would sneak away. Did Hellery really have a stroke? If so, she’s made one helluva comeback, and a quick one, too!

    I am of the opinion that if any other acting President in the United States had done half
    of what this man has done he would have been impeached already.  The media dares
    not report one flaw with this man, because we as a Nation feel we owe a black man the
    chance to run this country, we will gave one the chance and unfortunately it was a really bad choice because he represents a lazy, racist, Socialist.  The really sad thing is this may affect our decision to allow another to even try.  In conclusion, when is enough enough?

     American people have rage and it is not for their government but it diverted to stupid, petty politics of illusionary dems vrs repubs, when infact cons and libs all agree on most, if not, everything – especially on the most impt issue for the past  years which has been Syria.
    Cons agree that Assad must go and al quaeda must rule.

  • jen

     Cons don’t like what you say – they are pretentious as they only want to believe things only suddenly became bad in 2009 with Obama.  And under republicans, things were about perfect – that is the cons story line.  They know it is not true, but they love dem/repub politicians more than themselves – cons are infact great slaves and enjoy it.

  • jen

     Conservative definition of victory is total submission to Israeli politicians.  Obama is not a Clintonian.  Clintons are pawns of Obama/Soros.  True that Obama is worse than Bush and Clinton, but a system has been set for at least a 100 years so that Obama could be successful and fool more than half the country. 

    Conservatives agree with Obama on the middle east and foreign policy, espec that Assad must go bec he is not a terrorist and he won’t implement sharia law as cons want him to do so.

    Never forget people, that the LSM has been complicit in all of this. Refusing to discover the truth, obfuscating, lying because ochicken is “our boy.”

    I strongly suggest that all personnel working for the LSM, whether it be television, radio, or print; to find a job somewhere else, NOW. Because they’ll be surely be laid off en masse later.

    The only problem I have with this article is that the “gunrunning” was primarily to al qaeda, not the muslim brotherhood (though, both extremists and involved in the “rebel” forces).  The problem is, al qaeda is being exposed as being funded by the west and by proxy Israel intelligence.  The recent UN back peddling on chemical weapons used by the syrian rebel forces, in conjunction with Israel’s attack on “Hezbollah” missiles, ultimately point to General Clark’s statements regarding the middle east destablization agenda.

    Just a note on the WMD’s.  I read a very interesting book by one of Saddam’s generals called “Saddam’s Secrets”. It is largely about George Sada’s life history in Iraq, having served as an assistant to a base commander as a kid, to the point of being in charge of all the captured allied pilots that were captured in the Gulf war.  Lot’s of amazing information in it and a look inside the regime.  Anyway, he claimed that the chemical weapons were flown out of Iraq to Syria in commercial planes that had been stripped down to carry cargo.  Interesting possibility.

    Congress asked the State Department how much funds they needed to protect the embassies worldwide the State Department gave Congress a Figure. They the House Republicans cut over $400 Million from that figure so before you start pointing fingers at The White House and Secretary Clinton I suggest you call your Representatives in DC and tell them “When a Government Agency tells you how big of a budget they need you approve it and do not question it”

    If you want to understand what happened in Benghazi you’ll watch hearings like I did yesterday. There was already a great deal of information out there, but most people are more concerned with Honey Boo Boo and the NBA play-offs than they are about getting to the truth about why an American ambassador was killed for the first time in 30 years and why 2 brave ex-Seals died 7 hours later because they didn’t receive the help they needed. Jon Stewart is a liberal hack, and I rarely find him funny or relevant. Want to see hysteria? Tune into MSNBC and listen to the rantings of Chris Matthews who sees racism behind every Republican act or statement and turns a blind eye to anything that might reflect badly on President Obama or Democrats. I don’t care whether you’re a progressive or an anarchist or a conservative. You should be concerned about a government that intimidates and demotes career diplomats who simply ask a superior why Susan Rice said what she did about a demonstration related to a video when there had been no demonstration and (in his words) the video was a non-event in Libya. Watch the hearings and don’t depend on third parties to do your thinking for you.

    When Military Commanders are forced to triangulate on-the-ground war support and maneuver approvals with the President of the united States or someone like Hilary don’t go there or run as fast as you can. A clue is when the President will declare no war is being fought; but if it is declared a political operation and you volunteer, don’t expect to come out in one piece!

  • Anonymous

    Great, since you have the time to watch the hearings, let us know when they reveal something of significance. As for this conversation, it has totally devolved. You are criticizing Chris Matthews and “third-party” sources as we sit here and debate on GB’s website. Like MSNBC, Fox News, the Blaze has it’s own agenda: anti-Obama, anti-Muslim, extremely pro-Christian. Ohhh, groundbreaking stuff on sex trafficking, huh? But of course it’s a plot by Obama and the Muslim brotherhood and evil immigrants to enshrine sharia law and enslave us all. 

    This incident has nothing to with GWB, but I wonder, did you get this worked up over 9-11, the private jets that carried Saudi nationals home in the days after 9-11 when no commercial flights were authorized (speaking of that, GB has been pretty mum on the Saudi national’s connection to Boston as of late), the invasion of Iraq, the VP’s connections to Halliburton, the no-bid contracts that went to Halliburton, the outing of Valerie Plame?

    If Obama and his administration lied, they should suffer the consequences. But as of right now, as the Jon Stewart video explained so well, you’ve got nothing. Yet. You are working from the premise that Obama is out to destroy our country, and therefore, in your eyes, he’s already guilty.

    The hearings were on twice yesterday–during the day and on C-Span last night. I am not working from any premise about Obama. This is not about Obama. This is about simple facts. However, you’re never going to know what they are because you won’t take the time to educate yourself. Just because I looked at a story on the Blaze doesn’t mean I’m some sort of right-wing lunatic that sees everything as a grand conspiracy. You apparently looked at that same story.  I’m not using GB as my source. I’m listening to the people who were on the ground in Libya and hearing about State Department documents that are not classified and which members of the committee have seen which prove that Susan Rice should have known that what she said was nonsense. Have you seen the talking points that were published on the Weekly Standard which showed 3 different versions? Why don’t you take a look, and then tell me where the story about the video came from. BTW the video-maker was arrested by a SWAT team and is still incarcerated. I don’t care about Obama or Hillary Clinton’s political career. I think they are both pretty much immune from being touched by any of this because the media won’t allow it, and the average voter isn’t paying attention anyway. I encourage you to take the time to actually listen to the testimony. I imagine it’s available somewhere, and you probably have a DVR. I’m pretty sure there will be additional hearings. Maybe you don’t care if people died because other people didn’t do their jobs or if government officials put politics over security and then lied to try to cover up what happened. However, if you want to be informed and not just parrot the talking points of people like Jon Stewart why not make an effort to get the real story?

    We must demand the removal of obama and his arrest. Also the shut down of the Fed, IRS and the end of obamacare. Then we must cut money off to Washington and pay to our States. They will keep things running until our government gets hungry and will once again work for us. We must get the foreigner and corruption out of government. We will rebuild with God’s help and prosper again. Deport all the criminal aliens, ones connected to our enemies plus the jihad and russian soldiers across our land training from what I have heard for obama’s private militia supplied with the stockpiled ammo and guns. It is now or never people. We are America, God loving, gun toting, free righteous law abiding people who expect the same of our employees. We demand integrity and honesty which will never happen with this government or administration. Time for a change for the better. Unite America and call your Congresspeople, we need to lay the groundwork to cut off Washington till they agree to work for us again. God Bless America.

    Right and if you believe that I have swamp land for sale. They should have stayed out of it. Now government is in the schools. They are absolutely teaching children too young about sex and unnatural acts. Soon they will remove children from their parents for weight, height, if they are too smart, not smart enough or if they are taught Christian values. They saved nothing and are trying to destroy all.
