    Dragged upthread


    shame on every one of these people.

    So many things coming out:
    Hillary was on the phone with Hicks
    Military rec’d Stand Down order
    They begged Aviona for help and were denied
    Hicks told by superior NOT to cooperate with Congressional investigators

    • votermom says:

      and this
      Katie Pavlich ‏@KatiePavlich
      Hey remember when Hillary said Stevens was being helped and taken to the hospital? Hospital was run by terrorists who attacked him.

      • Somebody says:

        It’s always bothered me that there were so many videos and pictures of Stevens being dragged, yet Clinton always claimed how heroic those were that risked their lives getting him to the hospital. Now we hear it was a terrorist controlled hospital. If Hicks knew that, surely Clinton knew that and surely he fucking told her.

        How is it that me little old nobody saw all those images of Stevens and knew from the get go that the heroic helpers line was BS……but the SOS and POTUS didn’t????

        • Somebody says:

          This may be offensive to some, but I remember as a child hearing the story of Epaminondas……which is still around but has been changed to Epossomundos.

          When Clinton and then immediately after POTUS claimed that the Libyans were heroic risking their lives to get Stevens to the hospital all that kept running through my mind was the story from my childhood with a twist……..Islamanondus, Islamanondus that ain’t the way you take no ambassador to the hospital

          I told my sister that and she warned me never to repeat it because she felt it was terribly politically incorrect…..but wth, think what you want about me

  3. Somebody says:

    That was pretty damning testimony about being told not to cooperate. Sounds like a cover up to me.

    The current guy is an asshole, the whole budget thing has been proven to be bull. They bought how many electric cars, etc. It was a matter of priorities……not to mention their slush fund from Iraq they were seeking to get their hands on

  4. Somebody says:

    Speaking of the military, since when do we not have tankers? Not one of the bases in Italy or the ME had a tanker available? I don’t buy that.

    • Mary says:

      Even if we don’t have tankers (which we do), we could have asked any NATO country—-Italy, for instance—for help.

      We didn’t ask. We wanted to keep it all on the down low.

  6. Somebody says:

    When Nordstrum says the undersecretary and below. What’s he’s saying is the ARB didn’t question many or who knows if any career employees, instead political hacks. The upper echelon of any agency changes with each administration, then the level below them and down are typically career employees

  7. votermom says:

    Jonah Goldberg ‏@JonahNRO 2m
    Maybe in second round of questioning Rep. Norton will ask about Sarah Palin’s Facebook map and really blow this thing wide open.

    Brad Thor ‏@BradThor 31s
    The fact that all the whistleblowers are male shows that the #waronwomen will stoop to anything to deny birth control to women. #Benghazi

  8. Somebody says:

    Stovepipe……governmentease for a fuck up

  9. votermom says:

  10. catarina says:

    Rep Lynch, benghazi is not in Lebanon. Just sayin’

    • Somebody says:

      Did he just blame the dead for not being more aggressive in seeking more security?????

  11. I hope Lynch remembers how screwed he was by obama and the DNC in the senate election and doesnt act like a patsy prick.

  12. votermom says:

    Can’t they subpeona this Lt Col Gibson to find out who ordered him to stand down?

  13. Mary says:

    CSpan just did a wide camera shot—-looks like all the Dems have left the dais.

  14. Somebody says:

    I think I am a thread killer no posts for 10 minutes or so

    • Karma says:

      Not at all but I know the feeling.

      Actually, I was just about to google your children’s story reference when the phone wouldn’t stop ringing.

      Interesting take on that hospital trip, thanks for sharing it, and no offense taken.

  15. Somebody says:

    Holy crap is this lady setting up a bribe for Hicks????

  16. Mary says:

    Spiers questioning now. Said she had been through a “similar experience,” and understood how they felt.

    I think I’m gonna be sick.

    • …except hers involved a sale at Macy’s.

    • Karma says:

      A victim of Rev Kool-Aid is covering for Pres Kool-Aid.

      It took years before politicians stopped slob-knobbing Jim Jones to finally listen to family members’ complaints. They were more interested in the bus loads of protesters Jones could provide at a moments notice for the politicians’ so they could preen on tv.

      And the media covered for all of it. Pretending bussed in protesters were legitimate, that politicians were representing genuine constituent concerns, and that Jones’ accusers were crazy.

  17. WTF? Did Jackie Speier (D-CA) just offer Hicks a fucking bribe on national television? Did she just suggest that his cooperation on their side meant he could get any assignment he wanted??? *Wink wink* WTFFFFFFFF???? Arrrrg

  18. “The youtube video was a non-event in Libya.”

  19. DeniseVB says:

    Just about sums it up, the Dems are pathetic oversighters …..

  20. IMO a couple of the Dems were almost appropriate in their approach. The others? Wow.
    Well, you can’t really call them “tools” because that implies they do have some intrinsic usefulness. You can’t call them “retards” because that demeans the disabled. I guess the most accurate thing to call them is “Democrats”.

  21. WTF does Pocan’s back-trapping trip in S America where he heard some gunshots have to do with a full terrorist assault in Benghazi? More personal stories from Dems to divert attention from real horror.

  22. catarina says:

    walberg called out the dem for his “same old stories” comment.

    • Saw that. Great move. I’m hearing the use of “story” and “stories” a lot from the administration officials and other dems. I don’t recall hearing the use of the word “story” to describe a person who was directly involved in an incident before, so I’m guessing this is a subtle way to suggest LIE. Don’t they usually use “perception of events”?

  23. DeniseVB says:

    Meanwhile over at Obama’s Dept of Education ….. adjusting tinfoil hat…..against the law to release the records unless alleged bomber student approves. Huh?

  24. DeniseVB says:

    Tammy Duckworth ! Will she rise above the “politics” ? Maybe not. What would you do to improve training?

    • votermom says:

      Duckworth is going with the “let’s not assign blame, let’s just look forward” meme.
      How can you prevent a repeat when you don’t look at who f-‘d up before?

  25. votermom says:

  26. Good point from Nordstrom. Same person in the DoS chain was the ultimate choke point/non-decision maker for Nairobi and Benghazi.

  27. votermom says:

  28. HELENK says:

    has anyone here ever had to give a statement and then not be allowed to read it and check it? I never have.
    why wasn’t Mr Hicks who knows more about what happened than anyone else not be allowed to read and check his statement. That makes me suspicious that the report is not accurate

    • Somebody says:

      Well now Helenk if Mr. Hicks was allowed to review his statement then he couldn’t correct any editorial changes

    • Mary says:

      Ayup. And Mr. Hicks wasn’t the only one who was denied the right to read the ARB report, either.
      Apparently, when they gave testimony in interviews, there were no recordings or transcriptions taken, either.

      Definite red flags, folks.

      • Mary says:

        Oh…..and Hicks said today that he was NEVER interviewed by the FBI for their investigation, either.

  29. Somebody says:

    WOW the FBI never interviewed Hicks the second in command and after Steven’s death the number one????? Doesn’t sound like they were seeking the truth

    • HELENK says:

      the FBI investigation
      did not get to compound for 18 days

      did not interview Hicks.

      remember when a tv station found classified documents still in the Bengahazi compound after the FBI investigation

      does not sound like they did an impressive job. wonder why

  30. catarina says:

    Dem talking point handout prior to hearing:

    It’s now our job to prevent this from ever happening again.
    blah.. blah…blah…
    Also, this is the ninth hearing on this subject so just shut up now.

    • Somebody says:

      You forgot it’s all the budget cutting R’s fault, they want dead ambassadors should be the take away

  31. swanspirit says:

    Can someone extrapulate this ahole??Horsford?

  32. Somebody says:

    Why doesn’t someone ask this Horsford asshole how the state department could buy electric cars and other such bullshit and not provide security. Somebody in the chain of command had a different set of priorities

    • Mary says:

      Doesn’t matter. Charlene Lamb was asked in the first hearings if funding had anything to do with lack of security, and she said NO.
      Apparently Mr. Horsford was too lazy to do his homework.

      Bwahahahahahaahaaaa! Aww wingnut teabaggers haz the sadz because mobody buys your bullshit fauxrage? You people are pathetic.

  35. driguana says:

    Just wow! Our moving truck won’t arrive here in Delray Beach until tomorrow so no tv or computer and am relying on TCH for info …am astounded…thanks for keeping me posted with lively and colorful commentary as usual.

    • Somebody says:

      I hope your move goes smoothly and once again welcome to “The Sunshine State”

  36. HELENK says:

    now the dem from california is on the kick that it is Norstrom’s fault that Ambassador Stevens went to Benghazi. Norstrom had left the country 6 weeks before.
    they are getting desperate now

  37. myiq2xu says:

    Jodi Arias verdict is in, bye-bye Benghazi.

    • Somebody says:

      No network except Fox has really covered it anyway and even Fox cut out of the hearings early

  38. votermom says:


  39. Karma says:

    Hicks was essentially demoted.

  40. Mary says:

    Wait…..did I just hear Hicks admit that he has been DEMOTED?

    Excuuuuuuse me, HIllary?

    • Karma says:

      Yup, in several ways. Via the govt’s assessment of his performance and the job they finally allowed him to take afterwards. And after a period of a holding pattern without employment.

      • Mary says:

        So he was punished….for questioning why our UN ambassador would claim it was because of the video….

        And other State Dept employees saw that happen, and were too scared to speak up lest they be treated like Hicks.

        And HIllary Clinton let all of that happen?

        I’m totally disgusted. She’s dead to me.
