The Interim Progress report on the attacks in Benghazi on September 11, 2012 was published today. You can read the full report via The Hill. The write up of the report by The Hill hits the nail on the head in the title, GOP Benghazi Report Blames Clinton. The 46-page report accused Clinton — a possible White [...]
A hacker going by the name ‘Guccifer’ has intercepted emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to a former Clinton administration assistant, Sidney Blumenthal; some pertaining to the attack in Benghazi. Let’s set aside that Blumenthal holds no official office and that Clinton was discussing this with him rather than with someone who should [...]
Six months later, the American people still are no closer to learning the truth of what happened in Benghazi. The cover-up continues.The entire cast of characters has been in for hearings and given testimony – everyone except the survivors, which have been shuffled around and kept hidden by this administration who has apparently interviewed the survivors all on their [...]
I’m beginning to think this President is at worst, a pathological liar or at best, Bipolar. A month ago, he was barking like a junkyard dog in defense of Susan Rice, after admitting he sent her out to lie to the nation. Now we get this from Obama on Benghazi (via MSNBC): GREGORY: In the [...]
Weekly Standard has this article with video. Emphasis added is mine: In response to a question from reporter Major Garrett on whether the Obama administration’s mishandling of Benghazi raises “core questions of basic competency,” press secretary Jay Carney revealed that Barack Obama “is not particularly concerned” about whether Susan Rice misled the American people: “What the president [...]
We learned yesterday that the calls for back up coming out of Benghazi were repeatedly denied by this administration. Got that? They called for help – multiple times. The fight went on for four hours and this administration refused to make the gutsy call to send help. There were survivors that night. The former Seals [...]
Former Huffington Post contributor Sharmine Narwani took the occasion of the murder of our ambassador to Libya to launch into an anti-American diatribe that culminated in her asking why she is supposed to care about Ambassador Chris Stevens’ death or that of the other two killed with him. Sharmine Narwani, who is also a correspondent [...]
*I forgot to note why I published this a day early. My internet provider has listed a scheduled outage tomorrow and I didn’t want it to sit all day. Thanks! Hey, did you know we’re supposed to be mad at Mitt Romney for the attacks on our Embassies in the Middle East? Yeah, well, the [...]
Here on the 11th Anniversary of the attacks that took some 3,000 American lives on September 11th, 2001, a pair of Maryland State Democrats are throwing fundraisers. If that isn’t bad enough, one of them even said it is “patriotic” to hold a fundraiser on the anniversary of the day we were so brutally attacked. [...]
It was Tuesday 11 years ago today. It is Tuesday today. I don’t have a lot to say that hasn’t been said. Feel free to leave your thoughts here, if that helps. Never forget. Never, ever forget. (I won’t be tolerating trolling in the comments on this post. That includes comments on how I’m being [...]
A military judge has just put off American justice in a terror trial so that the accused can observe Ramadan. So our culture, our system of justice is now to take a back seat to Islam. This is how our civilization ends and how we capitulate to radical Islamism without our firing a shot, folks. [...]
This video perfectly illuminates the unseemliness of Obama’s constant gloating and bragging that he, himself killed Osama bin Laden. This video comes out just in time as members of the SEALs are slamming Obama for bragging so much about bagging binnie. As the caption notes: America knows who deserves the credit for killing Osama Bin [...]
At times, the man may very well be… but not here… not on this segment… watch it till the end… the very end: H/T to Mr. Shea… once again.
In Greek mythology, Cassandra was a seer whose prophesies always came true — but never in the way the audience expected. One king sought her counsel over whether to go to war, and she told him that if he did, a great empire would fall. He did, and one did — his. It’s a recurring [...]
Yesterday evening, after a long day of working on an RCIA presentation that’s due in about a week and squeezing in some Redskins football, I logged into the Brutally Honest admin dashboard and noticed that Fr. D. had a draft post ready for publication. I read the first couple of paragraphs or so, found an [...]
This is just wrong. (Written on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.) The Years of Shame Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued? Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd. What happened after 9/11 — and I think even people on the right know this, whether they [...]
Found at MSNBC’s America Remembers slideshow, this one grabs ya: The caption reads: Robert Peraza, who lost his son Robert David Peraza in the attacks at the World Trade Center, pauses on Sunday, Sept. 11, at his son’s name at the North Pool of the 9/11 Memorial before the 10th anniversary ceremony.
“Let’s roll.” Those were the last known words of Todd Beamer, one of the passengers of United Flight 93. Todd became known to the world because he was in telephone contact with someone on the ground at the time of the flight’s hijacking. Todd told the person that he and some other passengers were going [...]
Ten is a magic number to us humans. Round numbers, numbers that end in zero, have a special meaning to us. They represent an increase in the number of digits. Literally, the difference between nine and ten is exactly the same as that between eight and nine. Indeed, in one sense, it’s actually less of [...]
