Media coverup in the Benghazi incident

dealgate 6,245 1,081 May 9, 2013 at 07:54 AM
This article pretty much sums up what most people already know: the media covers for this administration. The news gets out anyway but it is really bad when you have legitimate reporters that are asking out of their contracts due to stories not friendly to "team obama" being censored.

I don't think you can rationally come to any other conclusion.

In the real world, when you cover up four murders after the fact, you likely go to jail. In government, you retire with dignity and run for president with full media support.

Up until yesterday, that was the Benghazi scenario following the death of four Americans including our ambassador to Libya.

The Obama administration has lied, stonewalled, bullied, and intimidated – the true marks of an open and transparent administration. And, with a few notable exceptions, the American media haven’t just let them get away it. Heck, they’ve helped.

Oh if the world were as simple as your beliefs.....

For instance, I heard a discussion today about "marked classified" emails in which it was stated that there were 2 emails marked confidential with an unconventional (C) marking, and that they were call logs which the State Dept confirmed should never have been classified confidential. But according to "black and white" logic, that is lying and perjury, without even allowing for the possibility it was a simple mistake (which anyone could make).

Fortunately those making the decisions understand reality far better than partisans like Jim Jordan.

When you receive for use/acknowledge a document with certain level of security marks, would you spend your work time going around trying to prove the marks are wrong, or just follow the protocol of handling and go on with your work duty?

Do you understand that such "shoulda-woulda" is a hindsight excuse for not doing you suppose to do?

With such posts you deviate further and further from self-representation as a valuable high paid employee.

What I would do as a high paid employee who values his job, is really not relevant to what my company's CEO/owner, who establishes policies, would or should do.

His time is far more valuable. That's why he flies in the company jet instead of coach.

Next time you try to formulate an analogy, try staying closer to reality.
I do not get relevance of your CEO here.

BTW, that's not CEO job to establish policies.

Apparently you forgot to google before pretending to be an expert.

#VulgarDonald ”Trump is a pathological liar." "Trump is a phony." "He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of this mouth.”

Then: “The pattern we’ve seen under President Obama, disregarding the law, is really one of the most troubling aspects of this presidency, When he disagrees with the law…he simply refuses to comply with it.”
Now: “Today, judicial lawlessness crossed into judicial tyranny, Today, for the first time ever, the government arrested a Christian woman for living according to her faith. This is wrong. This is not America. I stand with Kim Davis. Unequivocally. I stand with every American that the Obama Administration is trying to force to chose between honoring his or her faith or complying with a lawless court decision.

“What we just saw today was an absolute demonstration that, not only what he (McConnell) told every Republican senator, but what he told the press over and over and over again was a simple LIE.”

Then: "This bill (Hurricane Sandy relief) is symptomatic of a larger problem in Washington—an addiction to spending money we do not have. The United States Senate should not be in the business of exploiting victims of natural disasters to fund pork projects that further expand our debt."
Now: "Today, Texans are hurting. ... Democrats and Republicans in the congressional delegation will stand as one in support of the federal government meeting its statutory obligations to provide the relief to help the Texans who are hurting."

"In the 13 months I've been in the Senate, it has become apparent to me the single thing that Republicans hate and fear the most - and that is when they're forced to tell the truth. It makes their heads explode. An awful lot of the Republicans wanted exactly what Barack Obama wanted, exactly what Nancy Pelosi wanted, exactly what Harry Reid wanted, which is to raise the debt ceiling, but they wanted to be able to tell what they view as their foolish, gullible constituents back home they didn't do it."

“Look – look, of course we should have a surgeon general in place. And we don’t have one because President Obama, instead of nominating a health professional, he nominated someone (Dr. Murthy MD & Harvard Medical School Professor) who is an anti-gun activist."

“What I tell people is I wear this (indictment for abuse of power) as a badge of honor"

"His (Robert's) decision yesterday and his decision a couple of years ago violated his oath of office,"

“Today’s Democratic Party has decided there is no room for Christians. There is a liberal fascism that is going after Christian believers.”

CEO of the State Dept., a particular one we are discussing now, had more than enough time during her tenure to fix many mistakes. What now is presented as mistakes in marking and excuse in breaching handling protocol, never was a issue or priority on her list, nor should have been. She knew well enough she has bigger tasks. Not that she was doing it well, but, I'm sure she was well aware of how it suppose to be done.


As I said already, hindsight and flea hunt is a wrong excuse here.

FYI, SOS job description does not include establishing security protocols for document handling. Not on the list of most large companies CEO duties either.

Yeah, but it does include handling of documents which are not yet classified.

And specifying classification for State documents.

Like the 3 documents which were marked (C) in error, and verified by Comey today to not be considered a violation.

It's illegal to challenge the assigned classification.
