“MSNBC's Chris Matthews was a huge resignation pusher. As if that will change systemic problems that were within the VA long before Shenseki was there”

Daniel Ellsberg Thinks 'Very Much Less' Of John Kerry For His 'Despicable' Snowden Comments

Commented May 29, 2014 at 22:11:17 in HuffPost Live 321

“Good for Ellsberg for saying what millions of us think about Kerry's comments about Snowden. Last night on MSNBC's Chris Matthews Hardball Chris did not want to hear Andrea Mitchell's or David Corn's response to why Snowden left the country and why according to Chris Matthews Snowden did not use appropriate channels to reveal what he had discovered about U.S. intelligence going off the cliff with spying on Americans, allies etc. Both Mitchell and Corn said that Snowden was not trying to go to Russia or Cuba but to Equador to seek asylum because he knew he would be thrown in prison. Andrea brought up how the OBama administration has gone after government whistle blowers more so than any other administration. How Snowden had tried proper channels to expose and was ignored. That he basically had no other choice than to do what he did in what he thought was in the best interest of the country. Good for Ellsberg for slamming Kerry's words”

“Seems like a call to remove Shensiki is just a frontal change. As many experts are saying the problems within the VA system are systemic”

“I heard reports yesterday that whenever new policies and practices were rolled out that the sub-culture at the VA would plot how to circumvent them. It irks me to no end that people tweaked the processes in order to hit their bonuses. To me they're making money off of our wounded warriors. ARGH!”

“A democratically elected leader Morsi that Israel and the US did not approve of overthrown in a coup put together by el Sissi.. Not looking good for the Egyptian people”

steven82 on May 27, 2014 at 04:04:19

“I totally agree with your statement as that is what U have been saying along! It was the UN Ambassador, Susan Rice, that gave Sissi the nod of approval to overthrow the democratically elected President Morsi (and there were many witnesses to this account).
While Ido not agree with Morsi, I believe it was Obama and Netanyahu that pressured the Egyptian military to force its hand”

“Plenty of Dems in Kentucky if those in need of fair wages, health care, equity in education would stop voting against their own self interest. If you are looking to volunteer for a Dem candidate. Kentucky would be a great place to go. Beautiful state”

“Numerous military officials (two of them in Lara Login's report) contacted the state dept and said that the facilities needed far more security. That this was a serious accident waiting to happen. So does the Ambassador make those kinds of decisions or should other professionals opinions come into play? As the bi partisan report clearly stated this disaster could have been prevented.”

“ok Dylan Davies was a total sham. But there was plenty in her report that was not discredited. Like the two military officials that said they had contacted the Clinton State Dept and asked for more security at the compound etc. That it was a disaster waiting to happen. Even the bipartisan report on Benghazi stated that far more could have been done to prevent that disaster. Not sure why all of Login's story was discredited.”

pmoschetta on May 10, 2014 at 05:13:45

“Is that anything like the fact that Ambassador Stevens specifically requested NO ADDITIONAL security prior to the attacks, Kathleen Galt and instead wanted to rely on his hand picked Libyan militia for protection?”

“So you've asked Republican officials why they've cut embassy security funding for 4 years in a row...right?

Didn't Benghazi happen within that 4 year time frame?”

“Stevens had been offered support by Africa Command not once but multiple times and each time without explanation Stevens turned it down.

Benghazi was a CIA operation. CIA had contracted mercs and the local militas for security in order to give cover to their operations at the Diplo mission. The CIA told Stevens to refuse any offer of security and to cancel any effort by the State Dept to use State Dept resources to increase security and to not move the diplo mission out of Benghazi.”

WowJones on May 4, 2014 at 23:42:45

“In the month before attackers stormed U.S. facilities in Benghazi and killed four Americans, U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens twice turned down offers of security assistance made by the senior U.S. military official in the region in response to concerns that Stevens had raised in a still secret memorandum, two government officials told McClatchy.

“In light of the uncertain security environment, US Mission Benghazi will submit specific requests to US Embassy Tripoli for additional physical security upgrades and staffing needs by separate cover,” said the cable, which was first reported by Fox News.

Army Gen. Carter Ham, then the head of the U.S. Africa Command, did not wait for the separate cable, however. Instead, after reading the Aug. 16 cable, Ham phoned Stevens and asked if the embassy needed a special security team from the U.S. military. Stevens told Ham it did not, the officials said.”

“All you have to do is read the case file that Huff Po put up months ago. Allen is guilty and it is shameful that Diane Keaton would make such a comment with out looking at the facts”

Whitney Danielle Pyant on May 4, 2014 at 18:21:40

“Do have any proof that he is guilty? The problem is that Dylan keep changing her story and made seem that her mother put up to her. Bottom line is we don't know what happen during that time because we were not there.”

pattio66 on May 4, 2014 at 05:22:25

“I read the case file. It showed serious problems with impartiality from the judge, and contained no evidence that the alleged molestation occurred. I suppose that's why the prosecutor dropped the case...lack of evidence.”
