He will testify publicly later. Most interviews which may contain sensitive information -this time career personnel working at the State Dept -are first conducted behind close doors.

Pickering is being a whine baby as he knows what he did lacks any credibility. He was hoping to weasel out of it by making vague references to unnamed sources during a public hearing. Behind close doors he has to put the cards on the table.

You truly arte a Tea Party member.
Now you blame Clinton?? WTF ddid Clinton have to do with your hero G W Bush lying about Sadam's capabilities?
George W Bush told the yellow cake story,a story that Plame never said was true.
Vallerie Plame was the head/top dog/HNIC of the CIA's Joint Task Force on WMDs in Iraq. What other source of intelligence are you referencing.
Search "Bill Clinton CIA human rights purge" and tell us what you learn.... of course, Democrats want to pretend that never happened and Bill Clinton didn't completely destroy our foreign intelligence capabilities. Bush had to rebuild those capabilities.
I anxiously await your conclusions after you educate yourself on Bill Clinton's human rights purge of the CIA.
It was Vallerie Plame's "yellow cake story", you idiot. In fact, her husband was sent to Africa specifically to investigate that story.

Tell us what intelligence the president had that Vallerie Plame didn't have, dufus.

Autombile consumers, not voters.

California motorists buy a significantly higher percentage of foreign cars than the rest of the country, probably because they drive a lot of miles and need efficient and dependable cars.

WASHINGTON (CBSDC)— A former bodyguard for Osama bin Laden is claiming the terror leader blew himself up during the U.S. special forces raid on his Abbotabad compound in Pakistan.
Nabil Naim Abdel Fattah told Gulf News that Navy SEALs did not kill the al Qaeda leader who planned the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks.
“U.S. special forces did not kill Osama Bin Laden. He detonated himself to avoid being captured after American forces raided his hiding place in Pakistan in 2011,” Abedel Fattah explained to Gulf News.
Abdel Fattah – the former of Egyptian Islamic Jihad — said that bin Laden “wore an explosive belt for the last 10 years of his life.”
“He insisted on never handing himself over to the Americans. The American intelligence had planned to capture him alive, but they miscalculated,” Abdel Fattah said.“He blew himself up to avoid being captured because he wanted to protect his secrets until death.”
Fattah added:“The American president lied when he claimed that Bin Laden was buried in the sea. Bin Laden’s body parts were cut into multiple pieces, which is similar to suicide attacks following the bombing, so as not to leave any clue to the U.S. forces to identify him.””
Fattah told Gulf News he was not at the compound during the raid, but he “heard what happened there from Bin Laden’s cousin.”
Bin Laden was killed on May 2, 2011, during the Navy SEAL Team 6 raid on his compound.
What's a couple more lies by the LIC? Can these people ever tell the truth? Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!!!!

Wrong.

Issa wants to depose Mullen and Pickering before their public testimony so that they cannot get away with lying during the testimony.

And actually from your beloved Ramussen -

Thursday, May 30, 2013

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) now disapprove.


Gallup - 50%

<quoted text>You're btsht crazy. It was a CIA operation__you're not supposed to know about those goings on yet Issa and his fellow political grandstanders have given you and your ilk just enough information to get you all twisted up.
Petreaus did not testify in a public hearing.
Petreaus's bj girl was never subpoenaed even though she released highly classified information.
Mullen and Pickering wish to testify in a public setting yet Issa refuses to allow that.
Scott Wickland who was in Benghazi at both the consulate and the CIA base throughout the attacks has never been subpoenaed to testify in any setting.
We have never even learned why Stevens was at the consulate with only two members of his security detail.
You're a waste of time Carol right up there with dbyahoo.
Speaking of Petreaus, he snagged a cushy Wall St job and he'll be working with Ken Mehlman. Do you know who that is?
Please explain to us why the Force Recon Marine unit moved specifically to Sigonella to respond to specifically a terrorist attack specifically on our embassy specifically in Libya was ordered to stand down after being alerted.
Then, tell us who gave that order from the White House while the White House watched the attack on the real-time video feed.
CIA is part of the State Department. Orders were given to elements in the Department of Defense. The State Department cannot give orders to the Defense Department, idiot. The connection between the State Department and the Department of Defense is the White House, moron. Those orders came from the White House.

And, where was Obama when all this was happening? We still haven't got an answer for that. Perhaps he was doing the same thing as when the SEALs killed bin Laden and he didn't even have a clue the mission was happening.(If he an Vallerie Jarrett did know the mission was going to happen, the most likely outcome would probably have been the same as what happened on the very next "secret" mission of SEAL Team Six after the bin Laden mission.

But that will put the news about the scandals underground for awhile. I like seeing it in the public for a few more months like about a year or so.
