With more and more of our media being more similar to Candy Crowley than real journalists trying to get to the bottom of a story, who knows if we will ever really hear the truth behind all of this...

Though now that I think about it, they are probably trying to blame him.
If what happened?

Does it matter if Bush used the same tactics on two whistleblowers and Obama did it with ten whistleblowers? it's not a contest as to who used those tactics the most.

I have never read where a whistleblower was recognized for exposing wrong doing.


Having a problem with the truth???

Are you really justifying cover ups and intimidation of whistleblowers by the current administration, by saying "well, the last President did it?"

THis sounds like something you would hear from a 10 year old doing something wrong, that they know is wrong. "But Mr. HE did it!" In that case, they are both wrong.

Just another red herring and "let's throw it out ther and see if it sticks" tactic. The GOP is terrified of Hillary running in 2016and they should be, considering her popularity numbers in the polls are far outnumbering any candidate that the GOP is contemplating putting out there. Be scared GOP...be very scared.

Are you at a 10 year old comprehension level? You need to get your "wits" about you. Who the hell is "justifying" cover ups and intimidation of whistleblowers? If you go back you will see I referenced Thomas Blake and William Binney, both were targets of the Obama administration for whistleblowing. Where did I say that being persecuted for telling the truth was justified? Where did I say that coverups and intimidation of whistleblowers were justified at all for that matter?

There is no justification by any President - Obama, Bush, or any other president to cover up events that should not have happened during their administration - but they do it nevertheless. That doesn't make it OK because they all do it. Funny you refer to the current administrations actions, but exclude the previous administration and their actions. Is covering up an event worse than lying to a country to draw them into war??

Grow up. You act as if there was never a coverup by any past president and this is a first. The truth about Benghazi won't come out, if ever. Besides, Obama & Co are still looking for those responsible.
