WASHINGTON -- The sexual battery arrest of the Air Force officer who led the service's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response unit underscores how far the Defense Department has to go in addressing the plague of sexual crimes in the military, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee said Tuesday.
Sen. Carl Levin, D-Mich., told a committee hearing that a Pentagon report to be released later Tuesday reportedly estimates that, on average, there are more than 70 sexual assaults involving military personnel every day. The survey also shows there were some 26,000 claims of sexual assault in the military last year alone.
Authorities in Arlington County, Va., said Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski was charged with groping a woman in a northern Virginia parking lot on Sunday. Krusinski was removed from his post in the sexual assault unit after the Air Force learned of his arrest. He started in the post in February

U.S. Diplomat: Military Told Benghazi Rescue Team To Stand Down
Gregory Hicks, the deputy of former U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, claims that a team preparing to relieve the Benghazi, Libya diplomatic mission was told to stand down by the military, according to testimony obtained by CBS News on Monday:
According to excerpts released Monday, Hicks told investigators that SOCAFRICA commander Lt. Col. Gibson and his team were on their way to board a C-130 from Tripoli for Benghazi prior to an attack on a second U.S. compound "when [Col. Gibson] got a phone call from SOCAFRICA which said,'you can't go now, you don't have the authority to go now.' And so they missed the flight ... They were told not to board the flight, so they missed it."
Update: As CNN notes, "the C-130 left between 6 and 6:30 a.m., so the four Special Forces troops would not have arrived in time to fend off the 5:15 a.m. attack on the CIA annex in Benghazi."
http://livewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/entry/u...
The group that Glen Doherty was with responded to Benghazi from Tripoli after the
first attack and had problems getting to the CIA base arriving just prior to the attack.

They were stuck at the airport for a time without ground transportation.

Doherty died shortly after arriving at the CIA base during the morning attack.

The only goal of the republicans is to obstruct. All one needs to do is look at Speaker Boehners record and approval rating, and, that of congress.
Then, look at the record of Speaker Pelosi and the approval rating of congress when she was Speaker.
I doubt the republicans will win the presidency for many years to come; but, their goal is to maintain control of congress and obstruct, obstruct, obstruct. This is incredible that these paid officials are getting paid to do nothing. They'd have been fired in a day in the private sector. There are over 80 federal judgeships not filled, why? Take a guess.
I suggest you get on the horn with harry reid. Tell him to get his ass in gear

"Despite the vacancy crisis, the Senate has consistently failed to make meaningful progress on judicial nominations.  There are currently 22 nominees,nine of whom are women. Some of these nominees were approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee last year but did not receive a vote before the full Senate despite waiting for months; some have not yet had hearings"

Russian Calls Out Obama As A Communist-Democrats must be so proud.
May 7, 2013
Barack Obama is called a pure Communist by the Russian Press and many in Russia are making that statement. Maybe that is why the Boston Bombers could get away with what they did. It seems that Russia knew that the older brother was one to watch and they informed our intelligence community of it, yet the FBI once again failed because they “did not want to inflame people with Jihad connections or ideology!” Obama has declared that the United States will not “attack” those who hate the United States and instead, Obama wants to try to appease the situation in the terrorists’ favor. One individual, a man named Xavier Lerma, who wrote many articles about Obama and what he has done, along with calling the people of the United States stupid and ignorant for putting him in office has openly called Obama a Communist! His article,“Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” discusses why what Obama is doing now has been done before in Russia and it failed.

Mr. Lerma stated:

“Putin in 2009 outlined his strategy for economic success. Alas, poor Obama did the opposite but nevertheless was re-elected. Bye, bye Miss American Pie. The Communists have won in America with Obama but failed miserably in Russia with Zyuganov who only received 17% of the vote. Vladimir Putin was re-elected as President keeping the NWO order out of Russia while America continues to repeat the Soviet mistake.”

This was in the first paragraph of his article where he made the statement about President Obama,“Well, any normal individual understands that as true but liberalism is a psychosis . O’bomber even keeps the war going along the Mexican border with projects like “fast and furious” and there is still no sign of ending it. He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

If Bush had let the UN inspectors finish their jobs then it would have been apparent that there was no threat. Now thanks to this unnecessary invasion we have sectarian strife in Iraq along with suicide bombings that weren't happening before. There's also been an increase in birth defects due to the depleted uranium rounds that were liberally shot around. Contrary to your previous assertions women in the now Islamic Iraq have fewer rights than they had under the former secular regime.
But go ahead keep defending the indefensible and by all means keep bitching about the deficit and ignoring one of its main causes.
If the UN inspectors had ever done their job, then the war might have been avoided. But the inspectors only inspected where and when Saddam Hussein would permit. The inspections were a joke, and if the inspectors had found problems, the UN would not have done anything anyway.

<quoted text>When Clinton Lied... America Died... President Clinton signed the Iraq Liberation Act of 1998 and every single democrat voted and said Saddam was an imminent threat and Saddam had to be removed three years prior to 9/11...
December 16,1998 WASHINGTON (CNN)-- From the Oval Office, President Clinton told the nation Wednesday evening why he ordered new military strikes against Iraq and starts war with Iraq.
"Saddam (Hussein) must not be allowed to threaten his neighbors or the world with NUCLEAR ARMS, poison gas or biological weapons," Clinton said.
Our mission is to attack Iraq's NUCLEAR, chemical and biological weapons programs and its military capacity to threaten its neighbors," said Clinton.
Clinton Starts war with Iraq because of Nuclear weapons you idiot...
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =ENAV_UoIfgcXX&feature=rel ated
Bush’s Iraq policy was grounded in the same legal bases for military action that had been developed and utilized by Clinton. The Duelfer report findings of 2004, largely ignored within a toxic political discourse, corroborated President Clinton's contentions that Saddam Hussein intended to rebuild his proscribed weapons programs once the sanctions had been defeated, retained his long-term interest in a nuclear program in order to make Iraq a great regional power and to protect Iraq’s interests from foreign interference, and had continued to develop long-range delivery systems.

<quoted text>The referenced CIA base was irrelevant? Honey, that was the sight of the second attack, the one where Ty Woods and Glen Doherty died. You might be confused because it's been referred to as the CIA annex rather than base.
Basically__what you're saying is that you don't have a fn clue what happened so you'll just go with the FOX rewrite.
BTW the CIA base was right around the corner from the Benghazi embassy compound and may have housed over two dozen CIA military contractors and God knows what else. Petreaus's squeeze Broadwell stated that it had been used to house prisoners. OH MY__who might have shared that info with her. Whatever__the base can be found on google earth where it's clearly Identified as the CIA annex.

After all, that's what they were hired to do. No matter the party affiliation, govt officials only reach across the isle, to assure the passage of their policies. Stop trying to make the republicans out to be Angels, & the democrats Demons. Obama was elected & reelected, so America must want to see his vision of America. Republicans have to wait their turns!
If you think the winning party has a blank check to install their ideology, then you don't understand American government, which is intended to be evolutionary rather than revolutionary.
