Related: Whistleblower Hicks, a Democrat, voted for Obama and guess who else? “Gregory Hicks, who served as deputy chief of mission in Libya during the Sept. 11 terrorist attack, voted for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the 2008 primary election and Barack Obama in the last two general elections.” Nah, he’s still a rightwing shill. Gotta be.
Also: Joseph Curl: Watch out for Petraeus in Benghazi scandal. “Jay Carney looked almost ashen Friday as he took the podium to face a suddenly invigorated press corps. Of course, the public briefing came after a private session with ‘reporters who matter,’ a sure sign the White House is in full hunker-down mode — and, more precisely, terrified. . . . With the White House putting all blame on the agency, expect push back this week — nuclear push back. Gen. David H. Petraeus, the former director forced to resign after a sex scandal, is a dangerous man to the Obama administration. Mad and intent on getting even, he’s already talking, telling one reporter the talking points were “useless” and that he preferred not to use them at all. The floodgates will open this week, and by the end of business Friday, the scandal will be full blown.”
Well, stay tuned.
