What bungle?

Drudge’s headline for this story reads, “Despite Benghazi bungle, Susan Rice favored for Secy of State.”

My response is: what Bengahzi bungle? Rice did exactly what she was told and what the administration intended. That was no bungle, that was following orders, and she may indeed receive her reward.

As for Holder, Drudge links to an article that says that Eric Holder will stay. This seems correct to me. I have long stated that Holder will stay indefinitely, and why. See this; so far I’ve not seen any reason to change my mind.

    You could put in John Kerry as Secretary of Defense and you’d have a perfect set of bookends.

    I have said endlessly that they like playing word games and duping and so on.. once you get that part, you then get things that make no sense until you do

    Carry out (a task) clumsily or incompetently, leading to failure or an unsatisfactory outcome: “she had bungled every attempt to help”.

    ie… she is NOT responsible…

    also, due to the “personal is political” she cant be held responsible for any negative outcome. the doctrine is that she is not at fault, and they follow that doctrine.

    but most of all what is her title and her affiliation with Agenda 21?
    Ambassador to United Nations Susan Rice
    she is also CFR member, and serves Trilateral Commission Executive Committee

    other trilateral commission members in obama administration
    * Secretary of Treasury, Tim Geithner
    * National Security Advisor, Gen. James L. Jones
    * Deputy National Security Advisor, Thomas Donilon
    * Chairman, Economic Recovery Committee, Paul Volker
    * Director of National Intelligence, Admiral Dennis C. Blair
    * Assistant Secretary of State, Asia & Pacific, Kurt M. Campbell
    * Deputy Secretary of State, James Steinberg
    * State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Haass
    * State Department, Special Envoy, Dennis Ross
    * State Department, Special Envoy, Richard Holbrooke

    even more interesting if you start looking at relations, family history, and so on.

    “The nation-state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force: International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation-state.”
    Between Two Ages 1971

    i said to read the books that leader read.

    the book is by Zbigniew Brzezinski, a founder (with D Rockefeller) of the trilateral organization…

    lots of media men too. you know, the people we complain dont listen and put up stuff and dont allow others

    • David Bradley, Chairman, Atlantic Media Company
    • Karen Elliot House, former Senior Vice President, Dow Jones & Company, and Publisher, the Wall Street Journal
    • Richard Plepler, Co-president, HBO
    • Charlie Rose, PBS
    • Fareed Zakaria, Editor, Newsweek
    • Mortimer Zuckerman, Chairman, US News & World Reports

    when you go to their site, check out the news bar on the left…

    its also interesting what its logo evokes
    Trilateral Commission

    The Trilateral Commission is a non-governmental, non-partisan discussion group founded by David Rockefeller in July 1973, to foster closer cooperation among the United States, Europe and Japan.

    and the new obama EO gives local power to…NGOs?

    Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University and a Rockefeller advisor who was a specialist on international affairs, left his post to organize the group along with:

    Henry D. Owen (a Foreign Policy Studies Director with the Brookings Institution)
    George S. Franklin
    Robert R. Bowie (of the Foreign Policy Association and Director of the Harvard Center for International Affairs)
    Gerard C. Smith (Salt I negotiator, Rockefeller in-law, and its first North American Chairman)
    Marshall Hornblower (former partner at Wilmer, Cutler & Pickering)
    William Scranton (former Governor of Pennsylvania)
    Edwin Reischauer (a professor at Harvard)
    Max Kohnstamm (European Policy Centre)
    Tadashi Yamamoto (Japan Center for International Exchange)[2]

    Other founding members included Alan Greenspan and Paul Volcker, both later heads of the Federal Reserve system.

    by the way..
    whats accross the street from the CFR in ny and what testimony was given about it?

    Soviet UN mission….

    remember who founded UN and Secretary General for Dumbarton Oaks Conference….

    Alger Hiss

    once again.. you will always follow the source of communism in america to be the communists in america… to think that the current move towards that would happen without them, is silly.

    should i point out that Obama and Holder are CFR members? so is Matthew Waxman…

  3. Rose Says:

    The REALLY funny part is that in the beginning people actually BELIEVED that Obama would bring with him the best and the brightest.

    All we got were warmed over Clinton retreads and tax cheats, and uber-left-wing-whackaloons as Czars.

    Once again, he proves he does not attract any new talent, and what he does have is not even a proud rag-tag fleet, it’s all the dregs of humanity.

  4. expat Says:

    I re-read the comments at the Holder post. We all thought the KSM trial location would be important. Does anyone (except people like us) even remember this issue today? Obama supporters have memory spans of about 5 minutes.

  5. Susanamantha Says:

    Richard Holbrooke died in 2010.

  6. parker Says:

    Hillary & Susan 2016!

  7. Geoffrey Britain Says:

    Ah, the resurrection of Rice begins. The story Drudge links to is CBS, enough said.

  8. neo-neocon Says:

    Artfldgr: but “bungle” was Drudge’s headline. It’s not the way Obama framed it, or the way the press framed it.

  9. Molly NH Says:

    Re Art s post : Mortimer Zuckerman came out in support of Romney.

About Me

Previously a lifelong Democrat, born in New York and living in New England, surrounded by liberals on all sides, I've found myself slowly but surely leaving the fold and becoming that dread thing: a neocon.
