(ABC News)   Darrell Issa (R-eally?) says newly released White House e-mails include damning email evidence. The evidence? That the White House contacted Youtube about the video that the White House thought had started the protests. Seriously   (abcnews.go.com ) divider line

FTFC:  Impeachment cannot come too soon. As soon as Republicans have the Senate.

What a highly infromed comment.

I wonder if this genius thinks a GOP majority will get Obama thrown out, or if he thinks that the GOP will somehow manage to win 22 seats.

THIS is Obama's Benghazi.
 
2014-05-22 03:41:05 PM  
Republicans can rest assured that Obama is not going to get re-elected THIS time.

Umm, email "sent at 9:11 p.m." on the day of the attack of 9/11, 2012, on the anniversary of the attack of 9/11/2001....Weird.

Let me get this straight... their evidence that the White House is lying is an email that supports the WH's story.

No no.  It's an email that shows that the WH began the cover-up even as the attack was still going on....?

Issa leaks email backing up the White House. Maybe he's mad that he's not a part of the select committee.

Hey Issa?
Alice Cooper called.
He said to give it up with the chicken already.

They will accuse the President of using an executive order to change rules regarding Presidential impeachment.

Issa isn't even trying anymore to maintain the pretense that this isn't a political witch hunt and is really just an attempt to get learn from what happened in order to prevent future loss of life.

So right in the middle of all the other protests concerning the video that were occurring throughout the region?
 
2014-05-22 04:48:04 PM  
Well, at least the White House hasn't been involved in any suspicious warehouse fires lately.

Issa has an entirely different view. He contends the document contradicts the White House assertion that it was the CIA who first pinned blame for the attack on protests in response to the anti-Islamic video.

If you added together the IQ's of ALL of the GOP and their assorted sidekicks, gimps, freaks and geeks, would you end up with a positive number, and if so, would it be above 1?

Close...

The subject line of the e-mail, which was sent at 9:11 p.m. Eastern Time on the night of the attack, is "Update on Response to actions - Libya." The e-mail was written hours before the attack was over \

The way shiat gets written nowadays, you can look at that 27 times and not see the 'was over'...
 
2014-05-22 04:53:44 PM  
It can't be said enough. Benghazi is a much bigger clusterfark of failed intelligence, lies, coverups, and death than 9-11 and the war on Iraq combined.

Don't you know Obama deliberatly started them to cover up the murder of the ambassador so he could not release Obama's REAL birth certificate.

Daybreak, over a field of flowers.

In the center, lays a coffin draped in the American Flag. Darrell Issa enters from the right stage, singing a jaunty tune and doing a twirl in his dress.

He opens the coffin, and we see the decayed body of US Ambassador Chris Stevens. Mr. Issa mounts the corpse, wearing blood red slippers.

He begins to do a pirouette, spinning while singing "THE HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH THE TRUTH OF BENGHAAAZZIIII!!!!"

I bet Obama wishes he could just, I don't know, conveniently lose millions of White House e-mails.  That would sure keep the foxes out of his hen house.  If they keep finding stuff like this, it might be tempting to start erasing servers or something.  I'm not saying he's done it, just that he's probably considering it.

Is this breaking news on Fox?
 
2014-05-22 05:00:10 PM  
This just in from counter-earth:

Republicans are holding hearings to investigate why the CIA refused to accept the youtube video as the reason for the attack and why they were so able to quickly identify the attack as a targeted raid on the CIA safe house in the embassy.

Daryl Issa was quoted as saying: "How were they able to figure it out so fast?  Its almost like they knew it was going to happen."

I haven't seen any evidence that he hasn't done it.... therefore, he must have done it two or three times by now.

Holy fark...

They probably worked on this scheme for a while. They identified the video on youtube way ahead of time, and kept quiet about it, only to be used just in case there was a terrorist attack on the anniversary...

bonnieblue2A doindoubleduty • an hour ago
The White House already had its cover story for its politically convenient assassination of Ambassador Stevens. He knew too much about the State Dept.'s involvement in the trafficking of arms to radical Islamic 'rebels' in Libya and Syria.

Jesus, these people are SERIOUSLY deluded...

FTA:

Issa has asked the White House to declassify and release the document. In the meantime he has inserted a sentence from the e-mail in the Congressional Record.

Darrell Issa is infamous for releasing classified information before it has been declassified. I don't think that there is a single instance where he has kept a classified document secret.

Issa's assertions are just crazy pants.  He can't show that Obama knew it wasn't the video anymore (thus ending the scandal).  So now he moves on to an even more convoluted scandal:

Issa has an entirely different view. He contends the document contradicts the White House assertion that it was the CIA who first pinned blame for the attack on protests in response to the anti-Islamic video.

"The e-mail shows the White House had hurried to settle on a false narrative - one at odds with the conclusions reached by those on the ground - before Americans were even out of harm's way or the intelligence community had made an impartial examination of available evidence," Issa said.


Insane.  "Hurried to settle on a false narrative" is nuts.  Obama plainly believed it was the video at the time.  Issa knows he can't prove Obama was lying about the video anymore.  There is now definitive proof that Obama really did think it was the video at 9:12 that night.  So now Issa is going for a "rush to judgment" as his basis for a scandal.  How can that be a scandal?  Obama used what he knew at the time.  Later intel changed Obama's mind.

Can someone else pencil out Issa's scandal for me?

Dusk-You-n-Me: Stuff like this that...completely supports the White House version of events?


No, like the other smoking gun a week or two ago that also corroborated the White House version of events.   This thing is like pulling the string on a house of dominoes, man.  Pretty soon the jenga cards all fall down like barrels in a monkey.
