Republicans accuse Obama of cover-up over death of Chris Stevens in Libya

Sep 29, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: The Guardian

The killing of the US ambassador to Libya is rapidly becoming election fodder, as Republicans seize on confusion over the circumstances of Chris Stevens' death in Benghazi three weeks ago and accuse the Obama administration of covering up an al-Qaeda connection.

The Obama administration is unlawfully withholding public records about the spring break trip to Mexico funded by taxpayers last March for Malia Obama, according to a new lawsuit filed by Judicial Watch, the government watchdog organization based in Washington.

It’s not the first blackout the government has imposed on the trip, Judicial Watch noted.

Press reports of the trip for the then-13-year-old, a dozen friends and an estimated 25 Secret Service agents were erased from the Web on orders from the White House.

The new lawsuit claims not only are the records for the expenses of the trip required to be public, it is illegal for the administration to withhold them.

“Contrary to federal law, the Obama administration has simply ignored this basic [Freedom of Information Act] request. I have little doubt that this stonewall is because of the embarrassment of the security costs for the spring break trip of the Obamas’ daughter,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.

The organization previously has ferreted out details, including estimated expenses, for other Obama vacations at taxpayer expense.

For example, the organization said it discovered a February 2012 weekend ski vacation to Aspen, Colo., for Michelle Obama and her two daughters included U.S. Secret Service costs of nearly $49,000.

And Judicial Watch said costs for the U.S. Air Force and the Secret Service for Michelle Obama’s August 2010 vacation to Spain were at least $467,000. Further, a trip by Michelle, her family and her staff to South Africa in 2011 cost another $424,000, excluding transportation, security and other costs.

The lawsuit against the U.S. Secret Service seeks to force compliance with the Freedom of Information Act.

Judicial Watch said it submitted a FOIA request to the Secret Service on March 29 by certified mail seeking,“Any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the expenditure of U.S. government funds to provide security and/or any other services for Malia Obama and any companions during her March 2012 visit to Mexico.”

Although the Secret Service acknowledged receiving the letter and assigned it a file number, the administration has refused to respond.

“The Secret Service’s determination was due by May 4, 2012, at the latest. As of the date of this complaint, Defendant Secret Service has failed to … determine whether to comply with plaintiff’s requests [or] notify plaintiff of any such determination.”

It was on March 19 when “numerous online press outlets reported that the president’s 13-year-old daughter, Malia Obama, was on a spring break trip to Mexico accompanied by 25 U.S. Secret Service agents and as many as 12 of her friends.”

However, Judicial Watch explained,“shortly after the press reports surfaced, they were quickly removed from the Internet.”

“The trip reportedly took place shortly after the Texas Department of Public Safety issued a statement advising students on spring break ‘to avoid Mexico.’”

Politico reported at the time that the removal was on orders from the White House.

Kristina Schake, communications director for Michelle Obama, emailed to Politico:“From the beginning of the administration, the White House has asked news outlets not to report on or photograph the Obama children when they are not with their parents and there is no vital news interest. We have reminded outlets of this request in order to protect the privacy and security of these girls.”

Hey LEFTY .
You are really stretching your privilege of history rerwriting .
The various states and terrirories had legislatures in place during and after the ARW. True the growth of the Fed power was slow but the chaos you , as a LEFTY , are discribing woulddn't of permitted the Erie Canal , the RR system and the vast world trade going on.
Nor would millions of immigrants come to this land.
The newspaper and the book publishing industry thrived very well and so did establishment of schools.Not a sign of a a nation in chaos. The IVY LEague colleges were established before the ARW for the most part.
It was wild and dangerous on the frontiers but life was quite normal for the established coastal states.
Eric is an ignorant clown and poseur.

Relax, the invasion was not conducted by the host country, but by bands of criminals in Libya.....thus no act of war, but a criminal act, thus the FBI is investigating the incident.
If you are going to discuss this matter understand the policies of America first. Other wise you'll be sounding ridiculous and look like a fool.
America is no now, nor was we at war or conflict with Libya, George Bush took Libya off the List of States or sponsor acts of terrorism. Where were you? That was a big deal.

raining missiles down on a foreign country isn't an act of war? You sound like a fool.

Pizza is served to Malia and Sasha Obama at the Sidwell Friends School. They play sports.

The school lunch program Michelle Obama sponsers has the kids throwing out the food because they don't like it and it costs MORE than before. It is causing them emotional and physical distress!

Malia and Sasha Obama dine on Kobe beef.

The athletes at the public high schools are falling down on the courts from weakness and hunger. They've made a tape about it on You Tube!
They hate the sweet potato french fries.

Malia and Sasha Obama dine on regular French Fries with Michele Obama. They also gorge on whatever their stomachs want the minute they want it. Just look at how huge they both are. Sasha Obama is only 11 years old but looks about 30 and is always posing and dressing like a hoochie.

The American Embassy is in Tripoli not Benghazi. Benghazi is a lawless providence in Libya without Law and Order and home to bands of extreme groups intent on taking over Libya for the oil and their own purpose.

Chris Stevens was the ambassador to Libya ( jerk) as such he would travel to the various consulates ( jerk ) and Benghazi was one of them ( jerk ). The various consulates are part of an ambassadors responsibility (jerk).
So my statement about the FBI not be able to investigate is the truth and we both know it.So why did the Obamaites dispatch the FBI there ? Just a pretend make work project for them ?
Get it yet (jerk )?
Nice attempt at a deflection and CYA .

Because the attackers may have been Muslims doesn't mean they were Libyans representing the Libyan Government or sentiments of the Libyan Population.

You hate Muslims so you hate the people that live in Islamic Countries, how about the Jews and Christians from those regions, how does a bigot like you tell the difference from a glance?

You seem to stupid to direct your hatred accordingly.

We're not at war with Libya why would we turn our Marines loose in Libya to track a band of criminal, that's the FBI responsibility once they are allowed the permission to go into the location. We wound not allow the Mexican Government to send their Military Troops without permission into Texas on a man hunt to detain an American Criminal.

America is a nation governed by Laws, the Constitution. Not Men.

Deploying Troops in a Foreign Land, is an act of War.Would Romney if he were president start another War this time in Libya?

Think he would say yes at the debate? Think he wants to go to war for Israel? I think he's leading you moron around by the nose. He can not win with intentions on sending our young men and women to another war in the Middle East.

The FBI is playing with their " Game Boys " cooling it in Tripoli while other agents are stranded in nearby countries trying to get clearance to get into Libya.
Without a bn. of Marines the FBI is KIA bait in Benghazi and Obama knows it.
The Obamaites had no problem having an ambassador in Benghazi but sure seem constrained to send crack armed FBI agents there.
Bush took off the Gaddafi ruled Libya off the terrorist nation list. Have your HANDLERS informed you that Gaddafi is no longer ruling Libya ?

The Republican approach is to shoot first and ask questions later. The administration wants to do a proper investigation and be as accurate as possible. That's the difference between partisan politics and trying to govern.....

Hey dildoduster, i was responding to your idiotic claim we weren't at war with Libya. We[Obama] were.

I hate islamofascists who want to kill me and my family as well as their fellow muslims who don't toe their line. I have much disgust for mindless Obamabots like you who stick up for them.

Nothing to investigate, Obama and the dems spent 5 days bragging about killing Osama and our unprotected ambassador paid the ultimate price, then Ostupida went to Vegas to raise money and party.

Al quaida is alive and well, Obumbles has stopped nothing.
