While scandals swirl around Washington, the Anointed One has circled back to one of his first campaign promises that has yet to be fulfilled: Guantanamo Bay. Today Barack Obama will re-start his efforts to close Guantanamo Bay by transferring detainees from the facility. Part of this will include lifting the administration's prohibition on sending detainees to Yemen.
Last night, the White House dumped 100 pages of emails related to the Benghazi talking points. A few things. First of all, how hard was that? Congress has been begging for these emails for months and they suddenly show up now?
There have been dramatic changes in what many will now openly describe as a full-blown cover-up related to the Benghazi terrorist attack on September 11, 2012. What we have here is a case of complete incompetence, which led to the death of four brave Americans and a subsequent cover-up for the purposes of maintaining political power. The pursuit of power trumped reality and the truth. Simple as that.
Yesterday was a pretty unbelievable day. The hearing on Benghazi in the House Oversight and Reform committee was compelling and credible. If you didn't get the chance to see it, Greg Hicks' recount of what happened on the night of the attack was riveting, at times spellbinding.
I believe that today was a defining day for the Obama administration and particularly for Hillary Clinton. After waiting nearly eight months to get more information on exactly what happened surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi, three brave whistle-blowers from the State Department finally told their stories to a Congressional committee. It was clear and embarrassing based on the questions from Democrat members of the committee that they were more interested in protecting Susan Rice, Hillary Clinton and the administration rather than seeking information and the truth. With that being said, the minute-by-minute recount of what happened on September 11th from Greg Hicks (who became the highest ranking diplomat in Libya after Ambassador Stevens' passing) was absolutely riveting. Here are some of the important points we learned today from Greg Hicks, along with Mark Thompson and Eric Nordstrom.
Over the weekend, I was privileged to speak at the 2013 NRA Women's Leadership Luncheon in Houston. I wanted to do this for many reasons but in part because I am sick of the bad rap that the NRA is being given.
I believe that Boston and Benghazi are testaments to this administration's failure to recognize that we are at war with radical Islamist jihadis. While this clearly doesn't fit into the Obama administration's narrative that radical Islam is on the decline and al Qaeda is on the run, his failure to recognize the real problem here is causing serious long-term harm to our security. Looking back through the prism of history, we will see how dangerous this time truly has been for America and the world.
Last week I directed you to a congressional report which revealed damning information about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, which led to the death of four Americans. The report went a long way in shedding light on the lead up to the attack and what many believe to be the subsequent cover-up by the administration as to what really happened.
The situation in Syria became all the more real last week when it was revealed that chemical weapons were used against its own citizens. While the use of chemical weapons was once designated by the Obama administration as the “red line,” the administration has been cautious to respond. Barack Obama says that the administration is currently engaged in an “intelligence assessment” to determine definitely whether or not chemical weapons were, in fact, used.
Yesterday Joe Biden attended the memorial service for MIT police officer Sean Collier who was tragically killed by the Tsarnaez brothers last week. During his remarks, Crazy Uncle Joe made a comment that hasn't sat well with many Americans, including yours truly. He referred to the Boston bombing terrorists as “twisted, perverted, knock-off jihadists.”
A new congressional report has been released, giving us more details on the terrorist attack in Benghazi which led to the death of four brave Americans. All-in-all, it doesn't look good for Secretary Clinton or the Obama administration.
Things have changed dramatically since yesterday's press conference at 5pm. Most importantly we now know the identities of the two suspects, (white cap) Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, 19, and (black cap) Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26, who turn out to be brothers.
