Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers
by Michelle Malkin
It’s on. As the White House grapples with a growing backlash over its Libya lies and lapses, President Obama’s apologists are gearing up for battle. Put on your hip-waders. Grab those tar buckets. Get ready for Operation Smear Benghazi Whistleblowers.
Capitol Hill hearings this Wednesday on the deadly 9/11 consulate attack by jihadists will feature three compelling witnesses, all State Department veterans: Gregory N. Hicks, deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya and highest-ranking U.S. diplomat in the country at the time of the Benghazi jihad attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine who now serves as deputy coordinator for operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the top security officer in Libya.
Nordstrom first testified last fall about how State Department brass spurned his requests for increased security at the compound. Hicks and Thompson are coming forward publicly for the first time this week with more damning evidence contradicting Team Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s claims about the administration’s response the night of the attack and in the ensuing months of cover-ups.
Did you know that some on the left blamed Ambassador Stevens for his own death? Some actually blame Fox News for the “fictional” cover up? But as is typical with the left, they rarely have facts on their side. Do you ever check out the hacks at Daily Kos? Dear Lord in heaven, what planet are THOSE people on anyway? The “I hate everything and everybody’ bunch blame Republicans for EVERYTHING. I won’t link them, but if you are curious, and can stomach it….have at it!
A piece of advice to those who will be involved in the hearings today: Skip the salad, and go straight for the meat and potatoes! I rather doubt this will be a slobber fest as it was when Clinton was lying under oath, but you never know. Thanks the gentlemen for coming forward, and get on with the questions, which is what they should have done previously. But you know how those Dems LOVE to suck up to this administration’s officials.
We want the TRUTH! NOW would be nice! Attacking the character of those brave souls who have stepped forward does NOTHING to help your, or your boss’, credibility….JAY!!!
