Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

The attack started at 9:42 Benghazi time. That is 3:42 D.c. time. It ended at 5:15 Benghazi time. That's 11:15 D.C. time.

I think you people need to read the transcripts from yesterday's hearings. Panetta is not following your story line.

Imagine Code Pink and the right wing Obama haters on the same side of an issue LOL.
Opposition to a power-grabbing tyrant like Obama can cross party lines.

Fox's Hannity Joins Right-Wing Media In Selectively Editing Panetta's Testimony

Following in the footsteps of others in the right-wing media, Fox News host Sean Hannity selectively edited a video of outgoing Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta to portray President Obama as "virtually absent" during the September 2012 attack on a diplomatic facility in Benghazi, Libya. In fact, Panetta testified that White House officials were kept informed of events throughout the incident.

On the February 7 edition of his Fox News program, Hannity said "a major bombshell was revealed" during Panetta's testimony during a congressional briefing that Obama "was virtually absent" during the Benghazi attack. Hannity then played segments of Panetta's testimony.

But Hannity did not air the section of Panetta's testimony in which he pointed out that information about the attack "went to the White House" and that Obama stayed in contact with military officials and was "well-informed" during the attack. Hannity also failed to air a clip of Gen. Martin Dempsey stating that White House staff "was engaged with the national military command center pretty constantly through the period, which is the way it would normally work."

Hannity joins numerous other right-wing outlets in selectively editing the testimony of Panetta and Dempsey.

Oh... wait... you mean they're not required to obey unlawful orders as long as they don't do anything about them? That seems a little counter-productive?

A Ku Klux Klan leader named Edward, who goes by the title “KKK Exalted Cyclops,” is promising the “largest” rally in Memphis history after the city decided to remove Confederate names from three parks.

In an 9-0 vote on Tuesday night, the Memphis City Council approved temporary names for three Confederate-themed parks. Forest Park will become “Health Sciences Park,” Confederate Park will be called “Memphis Park” and Jefferson Davis Park will get the name “Mississippi River Park.”

You’re going to see the largest rally Memphis, Tennessee has ever seen,” he promised.“It’s not going to be 20 or 30, it’s going to be thousands of Klansmen from the whole United States coming to Memphis, Tennessee.”

After outgoing Defense Secretary Leon Panetta testified before Congress on the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, The Weekly Standard selectively cropped a portion of his testimony and blogged that Panetta found Obama to be "absent" the night of the assault. The Weekly Standard's attack on Obama subsequently made the conservative media rounds to Fox Nation, The Drudge Report, The Daily Caller, Breitbart.com , and Fox News.

Testimony yesterday by Leon Panetta, at least to the part about being absent.
Yeah I threw that second part in there to stir up the sheep. Panetta's testimony is very damning to both Clinton and Obama.

Would the rightwingers like anyone that President Obama picked? He'll be confirmed. I like him.
Speaking Arabic is a big asset, for anyone in the CIA, FBI, etc.
Meanwhile the lapd shot 2 women in a pickup truck yesterday, mistaking them for Dorner.
One of the women is still in intensive care. Neither will need to deliver newspapers any more after the taxpayers come up with a big settlement.

The cops also shot up every car in the neighborhood.

I think I should've chosen the word, counter-intuitive back there... Yes.. yes, I'm sure of it. Take No Gun Ri for instance. I can't see how machine-gunning women and children under a bridge could be construed by any reasonable person as being "a lawful order?" And yet not one of our brave fighting men chose to disobey the order... for three days. Perhaps the desire to ignore unlawful orders is superseded by the desire not to get shot by the idiots who told you to shoot all the women and children laying prone under a railroad bridge in the first place?

Yesterday’s testimony on Benghazi by Panetta made it clear that the President/Hillary were both AWOL but also explains why WH couldn’t produce a Photo of the President in the ‘War Room’ he wasn’t There!!
