    Wednesday Jul 15 | Hot Air

    I'd say that Mike Barnicle's comments on Morning Joe today need some context, but Mika Brzezinski provides it with a lengthy intro. The lead-in is lengthy, but the payoff is, well, amusing in an offhand sort of way.

  6. EDITORIAL: Emails strongly suggest Benghazi obfuscation, need for investigationRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday Jul 13 | Las Vegas Review Journal

    To many on the left, the word "Benghazi" has become a punchline, and the Republicans' continued investigation into the deadly events there has become a joke. In the wake of the September 2012 attack, the Obama administration made a concerted effort to convince the American public that the incident was not the result of a failure of policy, but rather that it had occurred spontaneously in response to an anti-Muslim Internet video.

    Tuesday Jun 30 | American Reporter

    As a onetime foreign correspondent who wrote from places like Northern Ireland, Iran, Pakistan, India, Vietnam and the Philippines, I see the riots in Cairo, the assassination in Benghazi and the friction in U.S-Israeli relations as part of one picture: a portrait of the Middle Eastern world preparing for war between Iran and Israel. There is no glue between the events in Libya and Egypt, and today's demonstrations in Yemen, Morocco, Sudan, Iraq, Iran and Tunisia, except a deluded Israeli-American's amateurish, offensive film about the Prophet Mohammad - in one scene the director has the Prophet put his head between a woman's legs to see for himself there is no "devil" there.

    Jun 17, 2015 | ABC News

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had access to the world's top intelligence agencies and their resources, but at the most turbulent moment of her tenure as the nation's top diplomat, she received a stream of intelligence on Libya and the Benghazi attack by a former CIA official working outside the government, sources said. Sidney Blumenthal, a confidant who was paid by the Clinton Foundation , told the Select Committee on Benghazi Tuesday that the information he supplied the sitting Secretary of State came from a "respected former high-ranking CIA official," rankling Republicans charged with investigating the events around the embassy attack.

    Jun 17, 2015 | Politico

    Republican members of a special congressional committee spent hours on Tuesday grilling Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal about the inner workings of the Clinton's philanthropic and political operations, going well beyond the 2012 Benghazi attacks that the committee is charged with investigating, according to sources familiar with the hearing. A particular focus during Tuesday's closed-door deposition was a network of groups founded by Clinton enforcer David Brock that - POLITICO has learned - paid Blumenthal more than $10,000 a month as they defended Hillary Clinton against conservative attacks, first while she was Secretary of State and then as she prepared for and ultimately entered the presidential campaign.

    A very odd encounter took place during Tuesday's deposition of Hillary Clinton's adviser Sid Blumenthal at the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Former House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrel Issa entered the closed-door hearing uninvited, only to be swiftly escorted from the room by Benghazi committee chairman "The pair briefly exchanged hushed words in a nearby hallway before Issa stormed off, throwing an empty soda can into a nearby trash bin," The Hill reports.
