    The former CIA director is set to meet with the House Intelligence Committee at 7:30 a.m. tomorrow for a closed-door hearing on the Sept. 11 attacks in Benghazi, Libya.

    Michele Bachmann is on the House Intelligence Committee???
    ooohhh the irony

    good. he should.

    Michelle Bachman--someone i know admires her. i was very surprised. a few decades ago--well, she thought differently. the times they are a changin'. truer words were never spoken?

    ~~
    i have already heard from one expert on how this is likely to go.

    anybody who wants to can DM/PM me with updates.

    refuse to 'tune in' to any source of media today.

    i have a headache.

    i suspect his wife has some others thoughts at present.

    has anyone heard--is he living in a tent in their backyard?

    Holly may be more 'understanding' and good that he is married to her. i would have to provide some very tough love in such a situation.

    Thats personal business between him and his wife though, on the battlefield that man takes care of business, his brilliant counter insurgency strategy saved god knows how many American lives in Iraq.

    So here's a question. Those were some of his men who got killed in Benghazi. If anyone had intel about an attack won't it be the CIA and why isn't he raising a stink about his men?

    i'd like thoughts on the PP's question, too.

    ~~~
    *admin/technical issue

    new member not liking the 'multiquote' feature so much--visually distracting.

    i can live with that. fwiw.

    ~~~

    limbaugh gave a theory on all this yesterday--sounded plausible.

    google if you like --certain there is a record of what he thought yesterday. somewhere.

    I thought the CIA asked for more security and manpower but were turned down?

    I would love to see Petreaus throw obama under the bus, if not the steamroller. I hope he tells the truth.
