"If we're playing politics with Benghazi, we'll get burned,When asked if the issue has become more about politics than substance, Anyone who believes this is just about politics, go tell that to the family members ... Anyone who plays politics with Benghazi will get burned." Senator Lindsey Graham of South Carolina on CBS's Face the Nation
President Barack Obama said in a statement he had authorized the operation in Libya on Sunday, in which U.S. special operations forces captured Ahmed Abu Khatallah. “Since the deadly attacks on our facilities in Benghazi, I have made it a priority to find and bring to justice those responsible for the deaths of four brave Americans,” he said in a statement. He said Khatallah would “face the full weight of the American justice system.”
Whose job is it, in US society at least, to spin a set of facts into something greatly different from what the Truth might be? Lawyers = spin doctors. What percentage of our political leaders are lawyers.
Whose job is it, in US society at least, to spin a set of facts into something greatly different from what the Truth might be? Media Moguls who have a political agenda = spin doctors.
How in our society can we tell Spin from Truth; fact from fiction; fantasy from reality?
Join us as we BioAcoustically unfold one of the biggest quests for Truth in US history: The Real Story behind Benghazi - who planned it, who knew about it, who tried to cover it up.

In 13 HOURS: THE INSIDE ACCOUNT OF WHAT REALLY HAPPENED IN BENGHAZI, co-written with the surviving American security operators who fought that fateful night in the 2012 attack by Islamic militants on the US State Department Special Mission Compound and a nearby CIA station called the Annex in Benghazi, Libya, Zuckoff presents for the first time ever, the true account of the events and offers a step by step look at how they unfolded. The account in 13 HOURS “is not about what officials in the U.S. government knew, said, or did before or after the attack”, but is instead about the 13-hour Benghazi incident from the perspective of the surviving members of the security team who were involved in the fighting.

Join a12iggymom, GulfDogs and SmokieTX tongiht as we honor the men lost in the Benghazi attacks in 2012. After watching 13 Hours At Benghazi there is a lot of new information and furor over the lack of response of this regime. Tonight we talk about the new information and try to tell the story of the brave men that took up defensive positions in the consulate and annex.
Amb. Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Glenn Doherty and Sean Smith deserve to be remembered and honored and also that their deaths be revenged. It is time for Trey Gowdy and his investigation to destroy the myth of the video causing this attack.
All calls are welcome tonight. This show is for us to get together and remember the actions of these brave men and demand action by this president.
Recent revelations about Benghazi are providing a clearer picture of what did and did not cause the attack. Tonight R. Frederick Riddle takes a look at Benghazi.

Well conservatives and their media have not stopped talking about Benghazi for the past 20 months. Who's to Blame? Is there "news" about Benghazi? Are there valid concerns about the handling of Benghazi? Or is it an intentional distraction from the real issues?
Author Mitchell Zuckoff talks about the inside story of Benghazi and his new book authored with 6 Annex Security Team members "13 Hours in Benghazi."
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
Let me reveal some bias here. Even though I am doing this piece on Benghazi, because I feel I have something logical and common sense to say about it, I am also doing this because I will get a ton of response.
My vocal right-wing friends will call me an Obama shill. My left-wing friends will call me weak for caving into loud mouths. And unfortunately, both sides will shade or distort so-called facts.
That’s why I am in favor of the new special House investigation into Benghazi. It needs to be done. But it needs to be done correctly.
Here’s what we’ve seen so far. It’s been all about the money. Political money. Special interests wanting to put their person in the White House. From both sides. Again we see -- there is no difference between Republicans and Democrats. Let me explain.
I think there IS -- or could be -- something there -- in the horrible episode in Benghazi. And yes there needs to be an investigation. First, four people died in service to our country. Second, there are good indications that the Obama White House did change the talking points for political expediency – before the 2012 campaign. Sure, playing politics isn’t a shock. But playing politics around the deaths of Americans is something we need to ask questions about. And we also need to be suspicious of a White House that won’t work with the committee.
From my research – through the maze of political bias – I am currently seeing this: If there is a crime it is more a crime of incompetence and omission -- not corruption.
If there was gross and willful mismanagement that led to these deaths, then let the trials begin.
But we should be just as suspicious of the Republicans as we are the Obama White House.
I am so glad to be back "In the Pickle Barrel"! It was wonderful to take time and celebrate the joining of Clay and Angelica as husband and wife.The big wedding is over, we have a new "Daughter-in-Law" and Susan (my wife) once again has her feet firmly on the ground.
As I attempted to stay clear of politics and daily news I found myself comong up short. "Not my fault" I kept saying to myself. It was the fault of family and guest asking questions and making "comments".
It is Monday and I am officially back and can speak up for the first time in days.....and there is a barrel full of issues to be discussed.
1. Reactions to Obama's "amnesty plan", his excuses for taking iout the pen, the reactions of Demos, Repubs, media and the rest of the world.
2. Obama torpedoing Hillary Clinton.
3. The Benghazi report
4. Is there a powder keg about to explode in Ferguson powder?
5. President Lindsey Graham?
6.Lawsuits actually being filed against Obama?
7. Could Harry Reid really be thrown aside like litter in the 2016 Senate Race by his supporters?
Yep, it is great to be back "In the Pickle Barrel"! Hope you will join me this morning at 8AM-10AM EST.
On the night of September 11, 2012, a heavily armed group of between 125 and 150 gunmen attacked the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, in Libya, killing U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and another diplomat. Several hours later in the early morning of the next day, a second assault targeted a nearby CIA annex in a different compound about one mile away, killing two embassy security personnel. Ten others were injured in the attacks which were strongly condemned by the governments of Libya, the United States, and many other countries throughout the world.
Many Libyans praised the late ambassador and staged public demonstrations against the militias that had formed during the civil war to oppose leader Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. The Libyan government also began attempts to disband many of the groups. The United States increased security worldwide at various diplomatic and military facilities and began investigating the attack
"What difference at this point does it make?" Hillary Clinton responded about her role in the death of four Americans, including Ambassador Christopher J. Stevens, during the September 11, 2012 attacks on an American diplomatic mission and CIA "Annex" in Benghazi.
A big difference, says longtime US political insider, consultant, lobbyist and New York Times best selling author, Roger Stone. The man who famously brought down Eliot Spitzer is finally speaking out about the Benghazi attacks--and Hillary won't like what he has to say.
