Welfare is to help people. If people are hurting they should know about programs to help them.
That s the purpose of the ads. To make sure those in need get the help that is available.

Fox Is Annoyed That Other Networks Don't Buy Into Its Benghazi Conspiracy Theory

In a stunning exercise in false equivalence, Fox News accused CBS News of maintaining a disciplinary double standard after it suspended correspondent Lara Logan for her botched 60 Minutes Benghazi report but continues to employ an analyst that Fox erroneously suggested was part of a Benghazi talking points conspiracy to provide political cover to President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

On April 2, according to ABC News, former CIA deputy director, Michael Morell testified again before the House Intelligence Committee regarding the 2012 attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya.

Fox News used today's hearing as a launching point to spin its latest already-debunked Benghazi conspiracy, hosting Lt. Tony Schaffer on the April 2 edition of Fox & Friends to push allegations that Morell deliberately omitted the truth about the Benghazi attacks from talking points later used by the administration in return for a consulting position with a firm ostensibly close to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Fox used the trumped up allegation to call for Morell's suspension from his position as an analyst for CBS, citing suspended CBS correspondent Lara Logan's botched and retracted 60 Minutes Benghazi report as a comparison. Fox co-host Steve Doocy accused CBS of maintaining a "crazy double standard" for disciplining Logan but not Morell:

Doocy's attempt to equate a Fox conspiracy theory about Morell's actions and motivations with Logan's now-infamous breaches of ethics and journalistic standards is staggering, as the two circumstances bear no resemblance. The allegations against Morrell have been repeatedly debunked, while Logan's 60 Minutes report on Benghazi that featured questionable source, Dylan Davies, whose credibility has since crumbled, led to an internal investigation resulting in the retraction of the report, an apology from Logan, and the subsequent leave of absence of Logan and her producer, Max McClellan.

This most recent groundless attack from Fox will surely be added to the network's Benghazi hoax parade to push for further costly hearings into the tragedy.

"After the attacks on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, after four Americans were slaughtered, Hillary Clinton looked the American public in the eye and claimed that a YouTube video was responsible. There were cracks in that narrative from the very beginning. But this morning, Gregory Hicks, Deputy Chief of Mission at the embassy, delivered a final, devastating blow.
Hicks testified that Clinton had called him at 2 a.m., while the attacks were underway.
As many as 60 attackers were inside the Benghazi compound, according to some estimates. Hours after the occurrence, the President of Libya communicated that the attack had possible terror links and was not a spontaneous protest related to a YouTube video (featured above), Hicks testified. Hicks said Hillary Clinton was among those to receive the communication.
Hicks said: We wanted to send more reinforcement to Benghazi.... The people in Benghazi had been fighting all night.... But he told me he had not been authorized to go. The vehicles needed to go.... Lt. Colonel Gibson was furious.... I had told him to bring our people home. Apparently no one had been authorized to go. Gibson was commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command in Africa.

hicks was in tripoli when the attack happened.

why are you such a fool?

this hicks fool was the same guy who swore there was a stand down order, when what really happened is that the second rescue team was told they were not needed as the survivors were already on a plane out of benghazi.

why do you continue to make such an ass of yourself on this issue?

Michael Morell: No cover-up on Benghazi

Former Deputy CIA Director Michael Morell denied Wednesday that there was any cover-up or political influence in messaging after the 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.

“We did not deliberately downplay the role of terrorists in the Benghazi attack in our analysis or in the talking points,” Morell said during a House Intelligence Committee hearing.

“And neither I, nor anyone else at the agency, deliberately misled anyone in Congress about any aspect of the tragedy in Benghazi,” Morell added.

Morell also said there are things that both he and the agency “should have done differently,” but he dismissed political motivations.

“There are areas where the CIA’s performance and my own performance could have been better, but none of our actions were the result of political influence in the intelligence process. None.”

Morell said he did not know that the talking points would be used by Susan Rice, then U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, in her appearances on the Sunday talk shows shortly following the attacks, which were widely criticized and, many say, cost her the secretary of state position, as she later withdrew her consideration for the spot.

“In fact, I didn’t even know she was going to be on the Sunday shows,” Morell said, adding that no one asked him or the agency to prepare Rice.

Morell said he believed that Rice, who is now national security adviser, would have had the talking points, as well as intelligence information from the days prior. However, he acknowledged that she did not have information sent by the CIA’s station chief on the ground, which concluded that the attack was possibly preplanned.

“Don’t you think that was an important document to get in the hands of someone who is going to brief the country on what was actually happening on the ground?” Rogers asked.

Morell said that the information had not been disseminated outside of the CIA and that at the time, he did not find the arguments that it was a preplanned attack “compelling.” Morell said earlier in the hearing that when the information from the station chief was first sent to analysts, they were “sticking to their judgment” that it was a protest.

“So I believed what my analysts said, that there was a protest. I also believed it to be a terrorist attack. You see, we never, we never saw those two things as mutually exclusive, and so I believed both of those at the same time,” Morell said.
