Petraeus to testify on Friday…closed session
Questions I would like to ask;
1) What was the CIA doing in Benghazi?
2) Who were the people “rescued and what were they doing there?
3) Who decided to use an obscure 14 minute video to blame for the attacks on the facilities and, who sent Susan Rice out to shore up that meme?
4) Obama gets daily intel reports, why was he “unaware” of any of the above? Did the CIA, FBI and DOJ keep the info from him? If so, why would they assume they had the authority to do so?
None of this makes sense in the real world. The head of the CIA put national security at risk and no one tells the President? Does anyone actually believe this?
In other news, another one of the “grown ups” in charge of our government threatens a reporter…..
The interview — recorded by Philipps and witnessed by Ginger Kathrens of the Cloud Foundation, a Colorado-based wild horse advocacy organization — was “perfectly pleasant” until the end, Kathrens said.
“He asked him about what his major accomplishments were and then asked him about his travels, what he was doing, and then he asked him about the 1,700 wild horses in BLM holding facilities,” she said. “Salazar said he didn’t know very much about it but that it was his understanding there was an investigation being done.”
After the interview, Kathrens said she tried to shake Salazar’s hand. He brushed past her, she said, and approached Philipps.
Salazar then reportedly was caught on tape saying, “Don’t you ever … You know what, you do that again, … I’ll punch you out.”
Salazar’s spokesman Blake Androff said Tuesday that, “the secretary regrets the exchange.”
The only reason he “regrets the exchange” is he got caught. At issue is America’s wild horses being sold and shipped to Mexican slaughterhouses. As Secretary of Interior shouldn’t he know about this issue?
All it takes is a call from Big White for MO to get what she wants. It seems Big MO is a fan of “Downtown Abbey” and couldn’t wait for its premiere on Jan 6th 2013 to find out what’s going on in the series.
Michelle Obama is so enamored with the series that she just couldn’t wait until it airs in the U.S. in January and “begged” british TV channel ITV to get the third season’s episodes early, UK’s The Telegraph reports. Ask and ye shall receive — if you’re the first lady.
“We’d heard the Obamas liked to watch it but we were very surprised when someone from the [sic] First Lady’s office got in touch asking for the series,” ITV said in a statement to The Sun.
See, she really is just like us. You can bet the perks are going to expand for MO, just like the Federal government is expanding under BO, exponentially. Here they are, returning to Big White after their minimal “victory” over common sense and wisdom.
