Not to be disrespectful of the FBI, but have they noticed that the 9/11 attack on our facility in Benghazi, Libya that saw four Americans killed is not a criminal matter, but an act of war committed by a hostile force? A matter which should be investigated and redressed by the military – not civilian authority.
And about that investigation, how trustworthy is the FBI when they appear to be hyper-politicized and under the control of Attorney General Eric Holder – a lapdog for the Obama Administration and a man who has been charged with Contempt of Congress.
Not to mention, the FBI’s failure to timely investigate the crime scene and recover not only evidence, but secret and sensitive documents that were left lying around to be recovered by anyone passing by or journalists who wanted to visit the scene for themselves. And, then there is the little matter of eyewitnesses who were never pursued by the FBI until Senator Lindsey Graham arranged for their interview by writing a letter to a foreign government. A lone Senator – not the Obama Administration and not the FBI.
Which tends to indicate that the idea of an “ongoing investigation” is nothing more than an administration ruse to keep “We the People” from discovering what appears to be a stunning level of malfeasance and a cover-up of Watergate proportions.
But, then again – The CIA said that Acting CIA Director “misspoke” when he said the FBI changed the talking points and gave an “ongoing investigation” as the reason.
Graham, McCain, and Ayotte demand to know who altered Rice’s talking points
Following their meeting with U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice on Tuesday morning, Republican Sens. Lindsey Graham, John McCain, and Kelly Ayotte strongly disagreed with the White House’s statement Tuesday that “there are no unanswered questions” regarding Rice’s initial statements on the Sept. 11 Benghazi attack.
The three senators have been highly critical of Rice, who said on several Sunday talk shows immediately following the attack that intelligence indicated that the incident was the result of a spontaneous protest about an anti-Muslim film.
In the Tuesday meeting, Rice acknowledged that that initial intelligence had been “incorrect.”
The three left the meeting saying they were “more disturbed” than when they went in, adding that many questions remained.
One major question appears to be who exactly removed all references to al-Qaida from the declassified talking points Rice used to prepare for the Sunday talk shows.
“Around 10:00 this morning in a meeting requested by Ambassador Rice, accompanied by acting CIA Director Mike Morell, we asked Mr. Morell who changed the unclassified talking points to remove references to al-Qaida. In response, Mr. Morell said the FBI removed the references and did so to prevent compromising an ongoing criminal investigation,” the three senators said in a joint statement issued Tuesday evening. “We were surprised by this revelation and the reasoning behind it.”
Whoops – another lying, misinformed or malfeasant official who hasn’t been given the taking points?
“However, at approximately 4:00 this afternoon, CIA officials contacted us and indicated that acting Director Morell misspoke in our earlier meeting,” the senators went on. “The CIA now says that it deleted the al-Qaida references, not the FBI. They were unable to give a reason as to why.”
“We are disturbed by the administration’s continued inability to answer even the most basic questions about the Benghazi attack and the administration’s response.The senators said that questions also remained about the timeline of the attack, “the president’s statements regarding the attack,” and about how long it took for the U.S. military to respond. <Source: Graham, McCain, Ayotte: Who altered Benghazi talking points? | The Daily Caller>
Bottom line …
There is an active cover-up and it includes the President of the United States, Barack Obama, Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, the former Director of the CIA, General Petraeus, and others such as United Nations Ambassador Susan Rice.
Everyone is pointing fingers at someone else while taking responsibility. Lies have been told under oath and nobody is being called out for perjury and lying to Congress. It appears we cannot trust our government in this matter and that the President of the United States is skating perilously close to Richard Nixon territory.
Something stinks in Benghazi. Something stinks in Washington. And when you have two aisle-hopping RINOs like John McCain and Lindsey Graham involved, I wonder if the truth will ever come out. Especially with McCain susceptible to being coerced by the administration over his collaboration with the enemy during the Viet Nam era?
