Report: Benghazi Attack Could Have Been Prevented
Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn’t ‘switched sides in the War on Terror’ and allowed $500 MILLION of weapons to reach al-Qaeda militants, reveals damning report
Citizens Committee on Benghazi claims the US government allowed arms to flow to al-Qaeda-linked militants who opposed Muammar Gaddafi
Their rise to power, the group says, led to the Benghazi attack in 2012
The group claims the strongman Gaddafi offered to abdicate his presidency, but the US refused to broker his peaceful exit
The commission, part of the center-right Accuracy In Media group, concluded that the Benghazi attack was a failed kidnapping plot
US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for ‘blind sheikh’ Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot

Bundy Hoax Exposed
Mr Bundy was only trying to say that the progressive welfare state has shackled the black community in ways that have been more harmful to the black families and communities than was going on in the times of slavery. He certainly was not advocating slavery. It was perhaps not the best or wisest articulation or choice of comparisons but Bundy is not a racist.
A-G Holder Cancels OKC Appearance Due to Protests
“Our protest has turned into a victory celebration because we frankly didn’t want him here — and we succeeded,” Mr. Wesselhoft said in an interview. “This man has used his position to advance his own political agenda and that’s not right. He swore to uphold the U.S. Constitution and defend it for all of us — not some of us.”
Carla Russell, one of the about 100 activists who came out for the rally, held a sign that read: “Holder is a Terrorist.”
“He’s not coming because he’s a chicken,” Mrs. Russell told the Red Dirt Report, a local news website. “And he doesn’t want to be recorded with people protesting against him with signs like mine.”

“There’s a number of articles that can be brought for impeachment,” he said, citing the many controversial decisions that Mr. Holder has made during his tenure, including his handling of issues such as the clemency guidelines, the IRS scandal and the botched Fast and Furious gun-walking program.
In 2012 Mr. Holder was held in contempt of Congress — the first time ever for a sitting Cabinet member — for failing to provide key information about Operation Fast and Furious.
Also, Holder orchestrated Sandy Hoax to advance his gun control agenda.

Anne Williamson: Who’s Sorry Now?
On 21 February, the day the Yanukovich government collapsed, cocktail hour at the U.S. State Department must have been one rip roaring, hours-long, high-five fiesta. The many billions the US had invested in a string of attempts to undermine an elected government in a former Soviet republic had finally paid off.
