  • usa8888

    Bobby–it is a question of fact. Often the right wingers are ashamed to admit they believe in absurdities. I don’t what they believe in as long as they don’t affect me or my country or the country’s economy. But since the latter is true, it affects me… if they really believe in Adam & Eve, the should have the balls to admit it…..

    GOP lifts subpoena after Benghazi auditor agrees to be deposed

    Rep. Darrell Issa and Ambassador Thomas Pickering have reached a deal that will allow the diplomat to appear for a closed-door meeting with investigators for the congressman.

    The agreement led Issa (R-Calif.), the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, to lift his subpoena on Pickering, who who co-authored the State Department’s independent report on the Benghazi attack.

    “Today, Ambassador Pickering reached an agreement with the Oversight Committee to voluntarily appear for a transcribed interview and answer all questions posed by Committee investigators,” Issa said in a statement.

    “As such, I have lifted his legal obligation to appear tomorrow for a deposition. His appearance for a transcribed interview with Committee investigators has been rescheduled for a date in the near future.”

    Republicans said last year’s Accountability Review Board (ARB), which investigated the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, failed to interview then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and allowed higher-ups in the department to escape blame.

    Issa subpoenaed Pickering after he refused to appear for a closed-door, recorded deposition with Issa’s staff. Pickering said he preferring to testify at an open hearing.

    Republicans have repeatedly asked for the ARB and the State Department to release the list of witnesses the board spoke to as well as the notes taken during their depositions.

    The interviews were not recorded or transcribed.

    One of the witnesses, the former deputy chief of mission in Libya at the time of the attacks, said he told the ARB that Clinton personally told Stevens to turn the Benghazi mission into a permanent U.S. post.

    That makes her responsible for the State Department’s decisions to deny the embassy’s requests for more security prior to the attack, Republicans say.

    “Our investigation includes an examination of criticisms career State Department officials have made about the ARB report being ‘incomplete’ and letting senior officials ‘off the hook,’ ” Issa said. “Ambassador Pickering’s testimony will help the Committee’s effort to learn about the board’s work.”

    Issa said Pickering’s ARB co-author, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Michael Mullen, would be invited to appear for a public hearing alongside Pickering soon after the deposition.

    Chriscee- you wouldn’t know the truth it it looked you in the face…

  • Jim S.

    Everytime USA8888 spouts his anti-Obama rhetoric, I get steamed.
    Obama has done everything he can to keep his campaign promises.
    He promised to DESTROY the economy – DONE
    He promised to DESTROY healthcare – DONE
    He promised to give to terrorists – DONE
    He promised to have priority on 1st responders = DONE
    ALL of us Dems, cheered at his promises and voted him in.

    Now, I will admit that when he said “we will fundamentally change the way this country functions”, I really didn’t think he was going to turn into Germany…IN THE FRIGGIN’ 1930’s.

  • Jim S.

    was going to turn into Germany…IN THE FRIGGIN’ 1930?s. s/b

    was going to turn us into Germany…IN THE FRIGGIN’ 1930?s.

  • Sicilian Papa

    I can tell you this if that Lerner told you do something at the IRS you better do it.

    Word has that Lerner hates Christians. She is fearful of Christians and she wants them marginalized. She is a true believer.

    The corrupt, secular, left wing, so-called objective media described Lerner as A political and a fair minded public servant. Of course they are the same media that described radical leftest, San Francisco liberal Nancy Pelosi as a moderate.

  • usa8888

    Why is it the right wingers have no concept of economics and the economy–Jim s., Chriscee, etc…need to enroll these people in college…

  • BevAG

    I haven’t read the story yet, but I’ve heard that Muslims in England took out a machete and cut a soldier to pieces while yelling “Allah Akbar” in an open square in England.

    President Obama now wants to bring those Muslims to America and put them on his Secret Service payroll.

  • Chriscee

    Of course Bev….Obama is a protector or Muslims and his brotherhood. We’ve known it from day 1.

    obama will go to any and all lengths to protect his muslim buddies…including killing Americans for them.
