CLEVELAND -- The man accused of holding three women captive for a decade in his home terrorized the mother of his children, frequently beating her, playing twisted psychological games and locking her indoors, her relatives say.
Several relatives of Grimilda Figueroa, who left Ariel Castro years ago and died last year after a long illness, painted a nightmarish portrait of life with Castro as authorities made public horrifying details of the abuse endured by the imprisoned women.
In interviews with The Associated Press on Thursday, the relatives described Castro as a "monster" who abused his wife and locked his family inside their own home. Their views were at odds with those of some of Castro's family and a neighbor, who knew the former school bus driver only as a happy and respectful man.
Figueroa's relatives said Castro savagely beat her, pushing her down a flight of stairs, breaking her nose and dislocating her shoulder, among other injuries. Her sister, Elida Caraballo, said Castro once shoved Figueroa into a cardboard box and closed the flaps over her head.
"He told her,'You stay there until I tell you to get out,'" said Caraballo, who cried as she recounted her sister's torment. "That's when I got scared and I ran downstairs to get my parents."
Everyone knows the horror those three girls went through by now if they're paying attention to current events. At least the propagandist media are keeping the Kim Kardashian crowd up to snuff on this story anyway.

Probably why you're still out of the loop on national current events.

By the way, where was Obama while the attack was occurring as he left Hillary and Panetta in charge?
It's well known__we've discussed it here__don't forget Petreaus eh? It was after all a CIA operation.

The attack on the Consulate occurred during the evening of the 11th, the attack on the CIA base occurred roughly 7 hours later on the early morning of the 12th.

Did Washington, or anyone anticipate the attack at the CIA base?

Was that even discussed? Fk no it wasn't, Bulldog Hicks was too enamored with his own heroism to get into the details.

John Kerry too.
They both voiced the same thing every single Democrat voiced in 1998 - Saddam was a clear threat and had to be removed from power.
Different day/same stupid. "What most fail to understand is that Bush had the authority and already pulled the trigger for WAR and was going to invade Iraq long before the IWR vote and Bush would have invaded Iraq with or without I.W.R's passage or failure. There were only going to be 2 options on the table and the third option of doing nothing was not one of them.

In 1992 the Gulf War had 52-47 senate votes and in 2002 the Iraq War had 76-23. Don't you find it curious (in your view) why so many democrats would vote for war. But they did not vote for WAR, the Democrats traded a YES vote on I.W.R. for a Bush promise to go to U.N. which he kept. Bush got the U.N. to pass Res 1441 and Saddam gave in and allow weapons inspectors with unlimited inspection rights to re-enter after a 4 year absence.

If Bush stopped and didn't invade Iraq and let and allowed the weapons inspectors to do their job, it would looked like a brilliant foreign policy move. Bush got greedy and lust for war overwhelmed him, he did not follow through on 2nd U.N. vote abandoning any hope for a large U.N. sponsored coalition. Bush also failed to get a promised 2nd vote from congress before invading Iraq."

On an overcast Friday morning last month, White House aides ushered an influential group of conservative radio hosts into the Oval Office for a private audience with the president.

For an hour and a half, Mr. Bush discussed his case for the war in Iraq, his immigration proposals and even the personality of his Scottish terrier Barney, who scratched on the door during the session until the president relented and let him into the office, according to several hosts who attended.

The meeting, which was not announced on the president’s public schedule, was part of an intensive Republican Party campaign to reclaim and re-energize a crucial army of supporters that is not as likely to walk in lockstep with the White House as it has in the past.

http://www.nytimes.com/2006/10/17/us/politics... ;

so what's new?

see where Inhofe said Obama might be impeached for Benghazi? like on one ever suggested Bush should be impeached for Iraq?

GOP’s Hagel calls Bush impeachment an option

no wonder the right wing media lied about Hagel, but the larger point is...so what's new?

No War for Credibility (II)

Krauthammer frets about the danger of lost “credibility” over Syria:

Instead he’s backed himself into a corner: be forced into a war he is firmly resolved to avoid, or lose credibility, which for a superpower on whose word [bold mine-DL] relies the safety of a dozen allies is not just embarrassing but dangerous.

Considering how often hard-liners mock Obama for his overconfidence in the power of rhetoric, some of them invest presidential statements with an incredible amount of significance. The truth is that the safety of “a dozen allies” and more depends on the treaty commitments that the U.S. made decades ago, and it also depends on the ability of U.S. and allied militaries to deter attack. Vaguely-worded statements on developments in Syria’s civil war don’t undermine those commitments or make that deterrent any less effective. The only people that take this claim seriously are hawks that want to goad the administration into making an easily avoidable blunder. Nothing would look more ridiculous to the rest of the world than being hectored into an unnecessary war by jingoistic columnists.

Apparently, Obama met with two officials around 11 p.m., told them to do whatever they could and went to bed to get his beauty rest for a big fundraiser the next day.

There has been no other testimony or released information stating otherwise.

Note as stupid as the Republican's loyal base. The audacity of Fox News is staggering. They invited Oliver North on the air to discuss — without irony or mention of Iran-Contra — his take on a possible cover-up in the Benghazi fiasco.
So they wheeled out the poster boy for Reagan’s Watergate to comment upon the Benghazi non-scandal — essentially displaying for the Fox News audience one of the top shelf villains from a Reagan/Republican scandal while they pretend to be totally innocent truth-seekers in a quest for government accountability. Lol.
