Award Night Party Before Benghazi Hearings - Rewarding lies and coverups

On the evening before the hearings on Benghazi, Susan Rice was honored with the Great American Award for

”her work in advancing U.S. interests, strengthening the world’s common security and prosperity, and promoting respect for human rights

Really? She lied about the deaths of Americans. Now, I quote Joe Biden, the current VP of the United States.

Rice has “the absolute, total, complete confidence of the president,” Biden said at a gala for the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, according to press reports. “When she speaks… no one wonders whether or not she is speaking for the president.”

So, she was speaking for the president? In the hearings, those on the panel were attempting very hard to distance the president and were attempting to place the decision making on others to insulate the president from any culpability in not allowing those who were ready to be deployed that evening and potentially save the lives of those heroes that were lost. If she lies, and she is speaking for the president, then we have 'lies by proxy' correct?

When you have the current highest ranking diplomat in Libya stating this...

Gregory Hicks, the highest ranking American diplomat in Libya after the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans last year, testified before Congress on Wednesday that he was “embarrassed” by Rice's claims. Here is the exchange between South Carolina Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy and Hicks about Susan Rice’s comments:
Gowdy: Fast forward, Mr. Hicks, to the Sunday talk shows with Ambassador Susan Rice. She blamed this attack on a video. In fact, she did it five different times. What is your reaction to that?
Hicks: I was stunned. My jaw dropped. And I was embarrassed.
Gowdy: Did she talk to you before she went on the five Sunday talk shows?
Hicks: No, sir.
Gowdy: You were the highest ranking official in Libya at the time, correct?
Hicks: Yes.
Gowdy: And she did not bother to have a conversation with you before she went on national television?
Hicks: No, sir.

So, the fix in and the reward is given to play ball but it comes down to one thing. Where was the CIC and why did he not make a decision. Very convenient to get rid of Hil before this also. Rewarding a coverup...

Where is that tranperency and what else are they 'keeping' from the American public? .

Which we now know to be 100% patently false... How does the General's lies negate someone else's?

Some of the logic being used to over-run facts for this event are getting almost silly.

I am not covering up anything. The current transparent administration is.They all lied. Someone has to take responsibility and it is the CIC. If he was a CEO, and he had to VP's pointing at each other, he would get rid of both especially if they both lied and then, replace himself or his board would.

Now, Petraeus said the following from your link...

In the Benghazi area, in the beginning we feel that it was spontaneous – the protest- because it went on for two or three hours, which is very relevant because if it was something that was planned, then they could have come and attacked right away,” Ruppersberger, D-Md., said following the hour-long briefing by Petraeus. “At this point it looks as if there was a spontaneous situation that occurred and that as a result of that, the extreme groups that were probably connected to al Qaeda took advantage of that situation and then the attack started

They felt it spontaneous and based in their intel at the time, 4 days before she went on TV, they suggested maybe militant groups used the confusion for an attack. This was a few days after the attack. Then, the other one went on the rounds and pushed the same story.

Since we ALL know it is a lie, why does the administration not address it instead of having the press secretary say it happened a long time ago and giving and award to one of the liars? I also do not think it a stretch that the admin also got rid of Petreaus by leaking his affair.

A very tricky game. At least with most previous CIC's you got what you got. The ability to take responsibility.

Really? How so? So in the immediate aftermath of the attacks, before the intelligence community could sort out all the evidence, the GOP shouted "We want answers!!! Cover-up"...of course it weeks away from a Presidential election.

But to be fair...the administration directs Rice to share what they know only a few days post attack...and she gets a bullet point doc from the CIA and says the following.

A statement that began with...


Well, Jake, first of all, it's important to know that there's an FBI investigation that has begun and will take some time to be completed. That will tell us with certainty what transpired.

And ended with...

We'll wait to see exactly what the investigation finally confirms, but that's the best information we have at present.

And said this in between

But our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that, in fact, what this began as, it was a spontaneous -- not a premeditated -- response to what had transpired in Cairo. In Cairo, as you know, a few hours earlier, there was a violent protest that was undertaken in reaction to this very offensive video that was disseminated.

We believe that folks in Benghazi, a small number of people came to the embassy to -- or to the consulate, rather, to replicate the sort of challenge that was posed in Cairo. And then as that unfolded, it seems to have been hijacked, let us say, by some individual clusters of extremists who came with heavier weapons, weapons that as you know in -- in the wake of the revolution in Libya are -- are quite common and accessible. And it then evolved from there.

The Administration, prepared a heavily hedged statement outlining what they were able to share of what they knew. Damned if they did, damned if they didn't. The argument that they should have shared nothing until they were certain is painful BS, cuz the GOP...Romney and others ...were twittering BS before we even recovered Ambassador Stephens body.

Partisan BS and political exploitation are all the more ugly in this context.

But what the hell...facts and actual words don't matter...if we can squeeze blood out of murdered Americans for political purposes, then go for it...right?

the GOP shouted? Stop there. How about everyone. We need to stop with the bipartisan garbage. If this was GW in office I would say the same thing. I promise you. Barry is in office so he is responsible. Can you honestly say that the administration

1. Handled this correctly
2. Did not do it because of the election
3. The release of Hilary to properly timed?

It has been months, with the current administration even saying it is old news hoping Honey Boo Boo fans will just roll over and Maybe check with Jon Stewart for the political news of the day.

I watched the hearings. It was very very sad. There were 3 men sitting there while the govt officials were saying lets not jump to conclusions.

This is what is on the MSM...empathy....


when he also said this and you will not find it on the controlled MSM. Remember, they beat up Bush every single day....
Balancing? we have to listen to you and protect the people who lied....

Here is a full link


Please watch this...stop thinking about what site it is on...close your eyes and just listen . Do not let anything allow you to be prejudice. Just listen to the words and if you can say so what, well, they, the ones who do control us, have won.
