Benghazi: Tough Questions and Hard Answers

Jun 20, 2013 12:05 PM PT

Another sad chapter in the Benghazi saga will open on June 26, when retired Army General Carter Ham, the former leader of the U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM), will respond to questions from the House Armed Services Committee. 

General Ham was in command of USAFRICOM during the September 11th terrorist attack that left Ambassador Christopher Stevens and State Department Communications Specialist Sean Smith dead in the fire-ravaged Benghazi Consulate. Also killed that night in Benghazi were former Navy SEALs Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, who, after a heroic but unsuccessful attempt to rescue the Ambassador, died fighting on the rooftop of a besieged CIA annex three miles across town.

Media Fail: Poll Shows Obama Lost Public Trust

Jun 15, 2013 8:34 AM PT

While our corrupt media has done its best to turn the page on Barack Obama's myriad of scandals, the deep-dive numbers in a new Fox News poll are absolutely devastating for the president. These numbers also reflect what we are seeing in other polls and Obama's overall approval ratings -- though the media are willfully ignoring reporting on both.

In a Fox News column looking at the public's growing distrust of Obama, Chris Stirewalt extrapolated these brutal numbers:

Jun 11, 2013 3:55 PM PT

President Obama Continues to Fail as CEO

Jun 11, 2013 2:48 PM PT

President Obama is failing as CEO of the U.S government. His appointment of Susan Rice to be his top national security advisor and other missteps, indicate he views the fallout from recent scandals as a political challenge, rather than a management failure. Nothing could be less true or more damaging.

Revelations about the IRS targeting conservative groups, the Justice Department broadly searching the emails of journalists, and recent revelations indicate systemic management dysfunctions and a culture of contempt for the protections of individual rights and the limits on the executive power required by the Constitution.

Benghazi Attackers Still on the Loose

In fact, one couldn't be criticized for having forgotten the fact that it was just about a month ago on May 15 that Attorney General Eric Holder claimed the FBI had taken "concrete" steps in the Benghazi investigation and that the DOJ/FBI would soon "be prepared... to reveal, all that [they've'] done."

ABC News: Susan Rice 'Got a Bad Rap' over Benghazi

Jun 8, 2013 3:29 PM PT

Former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice has taken a lot of heat for making the talk show rounds on Sept. 16, 2012 and blaming Benghazi on "a spontaneous protest."

But according to ABC News, the real blame lies with: the CIA for providing "faulty intelligence on spontaneous protests in Benghazi"; the State Department for "insisting that references to terrorism be deleted" from talking points; and the White House for "allowing those references to be deleted." Through all this, Rice simply "got a bad rap." 

It turns out that Rice's comments did come from the now-infamous CIA talking points and, while those points were heavily edited, the White House emails suggest Rice had no part in the editing process.

All 12 versions of the Benghazi talking points, including the first draft written entirely by the CIA, use the words "spontaneously inspired by the protests." That mistake belongs to the CIA.
