Comments for: Republicans’ security lapse

When House Republicans called a hearing in the middle of their long recess, you knew it would be something big, and indeed it was: They accidentally blew the CIA’s cover. The purpose of Wednesday’s hearing of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee was to examine… Read More

    It’s getting a political jab in at absolutely any cost.

    thanks dana, we already knew the embassador was there working to get the weapons back that the obama administration had given to the  libyan “rebels”(read al-queda) and were un- accounted for.Given  the number of people who watch c-span,I believe you have given away more information to our enemies than they could.The bdn and the other outlets should also share the blame if your words cause the deats of other americans.

      So Rep. Chaffetz let’s a cat out of a bag and Milbank’s the one to blame? Where did you learn spin? Karl Rove’s Academy of Political Subterfuge?

        truth is not spin. what the white house is doing,however,is the worst kind of spin.spin to cover up incompetence and arrogance that caused loss of life.biden continued to blame others in the debate last night.how pathetic.

          Have you seen the interview with one of the victims parents?  It will make you cry and be disgusted and I suggest that every left wing lover watch this interview.  You will ONLY see it on FOX……………. But knowing the left who always know best, they will call the interview a lie.  Sympathies to all the families who lost loved ones in that attack.

          •  Have you seen the victom’s families from W Bushes war for his daddies honor.

            What you spout is not on topic here.  Your statement reflects the one sided view.  So be it.

            And your view is not one sided?

            the truth only has one side.sadly,the liberal left rarely sees that side.Biden lied about libya  in the first couple minutes of the “debate” to cover the administrations butt. I guess it kept his base happy,but the rest of the country isn’t falling for it. it is good to know that there are those in the state dep’t. and in the intelligence community that will let the truth be known. i just it would happen before the election.

      Kaddafi already had more weapons in the nation that we could ever give to libyan freedom fighters.

        big deal,we gave weapons to al-queda, now we need to get them back.that was what the ambassador was trying to do when he was killed by terrorists.Look up al-queda,they don’t like us. now they have our weapons,given to them in haste for political reasons,to use against us.Some of those weapons can shoot down airliners…..

    I suspect that the forces that invaded the CIA facility (if it was one) found ample evidence of its nature. That horse is long gone.

  • “……Republicans were aiming to embarrass the Obama administration over state department security lapses.” 
    The Obama administration has embarrassed themselves and this country by their handling of this terrorist attack. Blaming someone else for everything that happens has been their defense for nearly four years. It is pathological. When the light of truth shines on this whole debacle it is going to be ten times uglier than it is today and it is pretty ugly now. Unfortunately it won’t happen until after the election.

      Like the Bush administration making up evidence of Hussein’s role in 9/11?

  • Romney must be interviewing for potential Press Secretary’s. So far he’s got Gowdy, Chaffetz, Issa and, if he has the gut’s to do it, Scooter Libby all in the running. Between the 4 of them they have managed to just about go and screw every CIA operation in the Middle East and North Africa, all in the name of both ‘National Security’ and, like we can’t guess this one coming, Administration embarassment. The GOP seems permanently focused, to the point of keester-fixated, on doing anything and everything they can to destroy the Intelligence Community that is only now getting itself back together after the abuse’s of both Bush 2 AND Clinton. Maybe dropping Chaffetz, Issa and Gowdy into the Libyan desert for a few days would help them understand just what it is that they are jepordizing. Either that that or glue their keester’s to a chair inside the CIA’s Main Building where the Wall of Stars is and leave them their to think about just how many people they are very likely to get killed by shooting their mouth off just for the camera’s.

    ROFL!!! Now they are going to BLAME the repubs for the attack and giving away secrets? These people are desperate! Come on…blame Bush, what about the tsunami, we already used “the movie”, it must have been the altitude. Not only has the conduct of this pres been despicable and disgusting but  his media and his surrogates are just as despicable. Even most on CNN can’t take the lies anymore and that is going some. FOUR DAYS after the attack, it took a CNN reporter to find a diary. So much for securing the area….BEFORE the CIA was mentioned.

      You act as if this was a second 911. If that’s the case shouldn’t we all rally around the President? If not, quit yer bloviatin’.

        Yep….that intelligent comment justifies a president and his admin lying to the American people and trying to justify their blame game for their incompetence. No one said it was another 9/11 or even insinuated that. I suppose we may as well blame the people who got killed. This pres can’t even admit any wrongdoing unless he is apologizing for this country every place he goes. He has lied and his people have lied but I guess you condone that. He is your guy then.

    Glad I do not depend on Dana or this rag for current news and events. Pathetic spin job does little call attention to the real issue, not only the lives lost as tragic as that is, but this is an outpost of the United States that was attacked. Ample warnings were ignored, and worse, request s were flat out denied. And for what? This adminstrations feckless foreign policy?  Time for tea…

    That’s like Romney publicly announcing his secret meeting with MI5

  • Anything to keep Grover Norquist in power

  • pbmann

    Republican’s seem to like giving up the CIA’s cover for political points and this would not be the first time they have done it.

    Just ask Valerie Plame.
