Letter: A despicable duo

Recently, Bret Baier of Fox News ran a minute-by-minute special on Benghazi with the latest information and ultimately the smokescreen this administration has thrown over the truth.

More important than American lives was the upcoming election and Obama and Clinton acted accordingly, his second presidential run and her future plans in the balance.

As repeated requests for added security were turned down, the ambassador to Benghazi and others had felt unsafe for months. In the end, it is obvious, Obama and Clinton had no intention of sending any real help while lying the entire way through.

They knew instantly who the al-Qaeda connected terrorists were but changed the CIA talking points 12 times, deleting any reference to terrorist attacks, then sent Susan Rice out to five Sunday shows to lie. For her faithful lying, she was promoted.

The head man in Tripoli, a Democrat Obama supporter testified under oath he was totally embarrassed by the revised talking points, since he knew the administration knew instantly it was not a worthless minutes-long video that caused the attack, that it was Islamic terrorists.

Some think Obama is special. Others think Clinton would make a good replacement.

I must concede they certainly are something for I know no one, myself included, who could go before national news cameras and lie as Obama and Clinton did with poker faces, then on to the United Nations and Univision for Obama and more straight-faced lying, and then both of them, standing by the very coffins with our four dead Americans, families close by and again, the same video lie, even emphasizing we weren't complicit in the video.

Not stopping there, they brazenly approached family members, hugged them, repeated the lies. They would get to the bottom of this, they promised. To date, families have heard nothing. Those at Benghazi have not even been questioned.

Yes, it takes a very special person to lie to this extent. Had these two been vetted, all would see they have much experience in this area. Lacking a better word, they are both despicable.

"3. The Iraq war, the Democrats voted for it also."

Again...you print this half truth. More Democrats voted Against it than For it. Please be more careful in the future.

"4. They did find WMD's in Iraq. I think it was Frank Lee Speaking and I both reported in depth on it. I think you were ill at the time."

No, they didn't. Bush lied, thousands died. What they found was old, decrepit and unusable. Again, please be more careful.

As to the rest, about impeachment, well.....LOL

""Because he has doen nothing in the way of an impeachable offense.""

anson, you have zero idea of all the things obama or any other president does on a daily basis so in no way can you factually state that. secondly, bush was an idiot. check, now move on and lets talk about the present, you know.. what matters. try and catch up bud.

Well done Linda. I found nothing wrong with the letter as posted and commend you for writing it. I have to wonder how many of your detractors have ever posted a letter themselves. But they seem to have a comment on yours. Many of which I find too cute by half. Keep it up

Lori: >I just saw a remark you made to me some weeks ago. My response.

1. Obama will never be impeached because the MSM is in his pocket, never reports even an iota of impeachable things he does. I found another one today concerning ACORN's fraudulent housing organizations. Defunded - he got them the money anymore. You didn't hear about it.

2. Issa's committee can impeach noone. They are an oversight committee, tasked to watch for wrong doing. Once they find it, they can recommend it move on to those who can but so far, Boehner has no cajones to do so.

3. The Iraq war, the Democrats voted for it also.

4. They did find WMD's in Iraq. I think it was Frank Lee Speaking and I both reported in depth on it. I think you were ill at the time.

(delete) The Republicans in Congress also signed on to The Patients Healthcare program so why aren't you asking them the same questions. I'll bet you can't wait for NBC to release the miniseries about Hillary that Fox is going to make. It wouldn't have anything to do with Hillary possibly running for the presidency would it?

I had forgotten Hillary's hail of bullets Bosnia story. Hahaha!! If nothing else, they get A's in brazen and lying. She and Wm Jefferson (or BJ Clinton as some of us call him) should have been secret agents, so adept are their lying skills.

Brought back so many memories. Do you recall when Bill happened to find a pile of little stones on a sandy beach with not a single pebble on it? He knelt and made a cross out of them - later we learned his team had planted them there for the cross scene.

Then he and Hillary (her in her one piece) romantically danced away on a beach. And again, we learned, there was no music playing, it also was staged.

Right up there with obama being conceived during the Montgomery march - except he was four years old when it happened.

Thanks for the memories.

After watching the rehearsed press conference
today it got me to wondering why they don't pick their critics instead of people who love every joke, every word this thug spews out of his narcissistic mouth.
I'm not a trained press person but I could have come up with questions that the president would have had to stop and think about instead of going into his too long, well rehearsed answers.
I would have ask him if Obama care is so great why did he have to insist on subsidizing congress because people with salaries up to $170,000 can't afford his wonderful health care.
I would have ask him to prove some of the made up statistics that he spews out with no objections...
If you thinks he stutters now, wait until he gets asked questions that he does not have the answers written down for him.

"Yeah, agreed. I actually don't watch much Fox News."

And yet you parrot their talking points on a daily basis. Nice Try.

Linda,
I hope you never change, as you are a brave, truthful woman. I have never met you, but for those who are critical of you behind a cloak of anonymity that says it all.

Benghazi? Is this truly the greatest thing of concern in America today? I would think unemployment, poverty, homelessness, issues here at home ought to be the biggest things a true US citizen would be worried about not some stale moot issue thousands of miles away that has happened and nothing is going to be done about no matter how much or how loud one cries about it! Terrorists attack, who knew what when is moot since it will not bring back the dead nor will it get anyone impeached no matter how much some wish it so!

Ya'll shocked to hear and see Hillary lie through her tooth? Where were you when she was the first lady? Scheme after scheme uncovered during her 'term'. Lie after lie. Cover up after cover up. Dead people, magic documents, vanishing, then reappearing elsewhere. Business partners getting busted, then sacrificed Washington style.
How about that time she arrived in Bosnia, under gunfire? Her story was like running for her life from the plane, through a hail of bullets to the safety of the terminal.
Then, we saw the videos. No bullets. No running. Huh? Wha? Handshakes and the ever present Hillary smirk was all. Some of her traveling companions even threw her under the bus when they found out what she had said.
Sooner one realizes that Hillary is for Hillary, under any and all circumstances, the better.

"... why this president isn't being called up for impeachment is beyond me! "

Because he has doen nothing in the way of an impeachable offense.

However, The Criminal most assuredly should have been impeached and brought up on War Crimes charges and yet the righties defend the little wimp. Pathetic.

To Linda Athens:

I'm bored, so will rspond to this one political letter. First of all, the Republicans despise Obama and Clinton, right? Well, don't you think that if our president and then Secretary of State Clinton did anything "dispicable," the Republicans would jump at the chance to impeach Obama and get rid of Hillary. Of all the "impeachable offenses" you claim Obama has done over the last 5 years, one would think that the Republicans, especially Issa, who has tried everything to get Obama out of office, would have succeeded by now if all these allegations were true. Face it Linda, you're beating a dead horse. Yes, what happened was indeed tragic. But I don't hear you crying foul about all of our soldiers who have died after Bush declared an unnecessary war on Iraq by lying about Iraq having WMD's. Or have you conveniently forgotten about that?

Poor Linda Athen's spending every waking moment terrified, horrified that a non-white non-uncle tom is sitting in the white house and nothing she can do about it but whine, cry, rant and rave on line! Guess its a good thing she vents all that pent up anger, venom in some non violent way!

Roger Banks:

Yeah, agreed. I actually don't watch much Fox News. Wrote this letter awhile ago but saw that Bret Baehr was having a special so I watched it. Had actually forgotten this letter.

Do you ever listen to Roger Hedgecock on the radio? They re-run his shows on the weekends, think maybe Sat and Sun morning.

He is so good but comes on in the evening here from LHC so if you are a Fox watcher at night, that would cut part of it out. He's on FM and can't remember where. I keep it on 1230 AM and when I switch, it is real close to there on AM. Great help huh? LOL!

Nights on 1230 AM is Mike Gallagher who I also like - used to be on in the morning before they switched to Gary Shelar (sp?)..

The Fox Hound:

Actually, I don't get news from Fox News. Perhaps you do.

So who are the people "spying" that you spoke about? I am unaware of that I guess.

Marla, Are you for real. Are you like an ostrich with your head buried in the sand. They let these poor people get killed on there watch and did absolutely nothing to help them. Then they lied about it. I really feel sorry for you, you must also believe Obamacare is going to give you free medical insurance also. You really need some help.

@nnp..... aka: pl..... aka: Phil L

"to those whose lives they have underhandedly and criminally targeted and destroyed. I'd explain this more fully, but one keeps running into that wall of ego and ignorance here, so just take my word for it, or go to the movies and see for yourself.

Ah yes, once again it is all about youyou, right Phil.

Ignorance? Demanding you provide proof of your persecution claims is demonstrating "ignorance"?

Movies? Oh yeah, all the movies you claim have been made about you, right Phil? And of course you have said that they are made by that "certain ethnic minority" who you also feel are out to get you.

Will the often promised indictments & arrests be happening soon? You did tell us multiple times that was coming, didn't you? How many years were you making that promise, Phil? Oh that's right, you have ceased even saying that any longer. Wonder why? Face it, your repeated unsubstantiated claims have reduced you to being just a prime example of a tin foil hat nuttery.

LOL

Marla Kiriakidis,
The above statements are truth not lies and why this president isn't being called up for impeachment is beyond me! OB and Clintons are most politically corrupt people this nation has seen.
