Clinton tried to cut State Dept counterterror experts out of the loop on Benghazi

Written By: Bob - May• 06•13

It just gets more scandalous with every revelation:

On the night of Sept. 11, as the Obama administration scrambled to respond to the Benghazi terror attacks, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a key aide effectively tried to cut the department’s own counterterrorism bureau out of the chain of reporting and decision-making, according to a “whistle-blower” witness from that bureau who will soon testify to the charge before Congress, Fox News has learned.

That witness is Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s counterterrorism bureau. Sources tell Fox News Thompson will level the allegation against Clinton during testimony on Wednesday before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, chaired by Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif.

Fox News has also learned that another official from the counterterrorism bureau — independently of Thompson — voiced the same complaint about Clinton and Under Secretary for Management Patrick Kennedy to trusted national security colleagues back in October.

Sources close to the congressional investigation who have been briefed on what Thompson will testify tell Fox News the veteran counterterrorism official concluded on Sept. 11 that Clinton and Kennedy tried to cut the counterterrorism bureau out of the loop as they and other Obama administration officials weighed how to respond to — and characterize — the Benghazi attacks.

“You should have seen what (Clinton) tried to do to us that night,” the second official in State’s counterterrorism bureau told colleagues back in October.  Those comments would appear to be corroborated by Thompson’s forthcoming testimony.

Career Democratic politicians worried about Barack Obama’s reelection—specifically Obama’s “al Qaeda is on the run” boast—cut their own counterterrorism experts out of the loop while the attack was underway to protect the campaign’s narrative.  30+ souls were abandoned on the ground by this President and Secretary of State, two of whom died preventable deaths many hours after the initial attack.

People died so that radical leftists in government could protect Barack Obama’s political campaign talking points.

This dwarfs the Watergate break-in in its seriousness.

If all of this damning testimony is corroborated as claimed, Barack Hussein Obama should be impeached, along with other officials that were in the loop, including Vice President Joe Biden.

    Bob, you know as well as I that this testimony will be given, at best, a passing mention on page 3, beside this week’s BOGO at the Park-N-Shop.
    These traitorous bastards should be hung for their actions, but will most likely be given promotions and raises.
    The whistle-blowers will have their lives and careers ruined by the very people that employed them.
    Every day I weep for our once great nation.
    Keep yer powder dry, folks. It’s gonna get WAY worse before it ever gets better.

    So what will the spinless GOP establishmnet do with these revelations? I predict this week will be a great dog and pony show complete with hand wringing, pontification and empty threats. In the end the GOP will agree with Hillary and Obama and just move along because it was so long ago and there is nothing to see here…

    Does anyone really think that anything will happen?
    The lying traitorous bastards will continue lying and the media will continue to cover their collective butts.

    If this were a Republican, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. All the dirty little secrets would have been aired in the MSM.

    You’re aiming too low. “People died so that radical leftists in government could protect Barack Obama’s political campaign talking points.”

    No, there’s a lot more to it than that.

    Heck, half of America – the low-information half that elected Obama – don’t even know who the Vice-President is, much less Obama’s talking points.

    No, they (Obama Inc.) knew they had the election in the bag through fraud.

    They are hiding something MUCH bigger than covering for Obama’s talking points.

    Arms trafficking? Perhaps.

    It may be bigger than that even.

    Keep up the good work.
