This is the most ridiculous thing I have seen in the news business in years.

Eric Holder is wanting to have a summit with media power players and he wants to keep this meeting off the record.

If it's off the record, why go?

Even the liberal New York Times, the house organ of the left, will not go because it's just going to be an arm twist.

Of course, Politico will.

Politico is Pravda.

The administration has a 12-alarm-fire on its hands and they've been so loved by this media they really are having a hard time with damage control.

The IRS mess still plagues this White House more than anything.

The IRS is a faceless agency, even Joe and Betty Beer can identify with.

Some don't know how dangerous it is playing with reporters sources and leaning on the Associated Press.

I still say Benghazi is the most damning.

We still know nothing that really went on except four U.S. Embassy people were murdered.

The ambassador there in Libya, the one who was killed last September, for all diplomatic purposes, was the president of the United States from his office in Benghazi.

The embassy or outpost there was under siege for eight hours.

Eight hours!

All we know is the president has a daily meeting at 5:00 p.m.

Reports say he was told what was going on.

Reportedly, he never called any military figure at all.

No Secretary of Defense, no Joint Chiefs of Staff.

There is a report he called Hillary Clinton five hours into the fight, while two of our Embassy folks were still
alive and fighting for their lives.

The reports say, after the phone call, Hillary started the offensive video caused this attack.

No one came to help.

And by the way the guy being blamed for the bad video, who really had nothing to do with any of this, is still in jail.

Benghazi.

That's your real scandal.

No one was called to help.

That's my point of view, what's yours?

Nobody remembers that 50+ embassy employees were killed during the Bush administration. Why weren't the Republicans outraged then? Why wasn't Neal Barton outraged then?

Frank Gaffney Jr. wrote an article for the Washington Post, published Oct. 22, 2012. Which states that ambassador Stevens was in charge of shipping captured Libyan weapons to Syrian rebels via Turkey. The ship named is the Al Entisar, with 400 tons of cargo docking in the Turkish port of Iskenderun on Sep. 6th, 2012. There is evidence these weapons are getting into the hands of our enemies. Remember the Iran-Contra scandal? Don't be a low information voter.

Bush may not have gone on record cause he didn't want to out his sources, unlike Obama who did crow about Bin Laden's death and thus DID outed his sources, that is Dr. Shakil Afridi, who is still in jail.

But Bush did NOT request to go OFF RECORD, unlike Holder. Bush did not sic the IRS on liberal groups (or man you would have heard the MSM howl so loud...) Bush did not go to sleep and just let citizens die one night nor spy in the press.

And we sure know which of the two we miss, right

But his cronies most certainly outed Valerie Plame, didn't they? I recall Bush pledging to fire whoever revealed her identity......Once he figured out Rove was behind it, that pledge went away...

The Bushsteins, Clintonbergs, and Yo'mama all puppets of the banking cartell controlling the economy of the western world and our government. In a nation dumbed-down and indoctrinated to believe in an enemy of radical Islam and evil dictators, that we invaded and looted a soverign nation to preserve our currency printed into worthlessness, who has any doubt of the motvations Lybians. A government that lies to it's people has no right to expect respect, or loyalty.

Funny how people advertise what they're not, like honesty and what they will do at 3:00 am when the red phone rings. After the US and France looted Libya's treasury, having killed Ghadaffi and two of his sons, (stupid Rebels killed Ghadaffi before we could torture from him the location of all of Libya's gold) we discovered his third son was in Niger being protected by the gov.t along with the missing gold. Last week the Brits attacked a uranium mine in Niger killing dozens but no gold.

Obama did as Hitler did in June 6th, 1944. Gave orders not to be disturbed, went and snorted coke (ok, Hitler had morphine but we all know Obama snorted cocaine in collage for a year, he said so himself), and slept through the crises.

Hillary? Oh she and the others were told not to do anything without Obama's ok (just as Hitler did) and so they did nothing.

Not saying Obama is Hitler but hey, he did spy on everyone, rig votes, talk big lies....

Every decision, every appointee that this president has made has been to undermine the United States of America and protect the enemy. Everyone around him are liars including Obama.

It is my understanding that the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES WENT TO BED THAT EVENING WHEN OUR CITIZENS, FELLOW COUNTRYMEN WERE UNDER ATTACK. If he will do that to them, where does that leave us?

While I enjoy reading a clear and coherent argument of issues, I think the author needs to focus on one issue and address it. For example, I remember when President George W. Bush was in office, he was asked to go on the record of what he knew of the 9-11 attacks, he also refused to go on record. Going off record, as the Attorney General is suggesting, is the status quo in Washington, D.C. I hope the author strives, as we all do for Pravda in the news. After all, Pravda is Russian for truth.

Nobody claims Bush to be any less of a puppet than Obama, or Clinton, or the othe Bush or...WMD's were a lie, but we all really knew that ahead of time, and when Columbia crashed with the Israeli pilot who flew air strikes into Iraq aboard, who was so naive to not know we were going to war even before the UN made it official by vote. If you believe in a two party America then you have swallowed the ruse of democracy; hook, line, and sinker.
