    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.

  10. The Man Behind Hillary Clinton's Private Libya IntelRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Jun 17 | 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.

  11. Benghazi panel probes Blumenthal's work for David BrockRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday Jun 17 | 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.

    The patented Obama/Clinton slow walk technique, in which important information is held back from the public, press, and congressional investigators until scandals die of old age, is evidently still in use. A congressional source tells Politico that "House GOP Benghazi investigators have discovered additional Libya communications between Sidney Blumenthal and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton," long after subpoenas were filed and supposedly responded to.
