Obama Scandal Bigger than Watergate?


House Oversight and Government Reform Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) sent a ten page letter on Friday to Barack Obama on Friday in which he asked for clarification of the White House's role in the Benghazi attacks.

The letter to Obama was accompanied by the release of more than 100 pages that documented requests for more security at the embassy.

“Americans … deserve a complete explanation about your administration's decision to accelerate a normalized presence in Libya at what now appears to be at the cost of endangering lives,” Issa wrote. “These critical foreign policy decisions are not made by low- or mid-level career officials — they are typically made through a structured and well-reasoned process that includes the National Security Council at the White House.

“The ultimate responsibility rests with you as the president of the United States," he said.

The letter met with outrage, not from Obama, but from Democrat Representative Elijah Cummings (D-MD). Cummings blasted Issa in a response declaring:

"It seems obvious that your goal in sending a public letter at this time is to release the most negative and distorted view possible of the attack in Benghazi ahead of the Presidential debate on Monday evening. This is particularly disturbing given requests by Ambassador Stevens’ family not to politicize his death as part of the campaign."

Issa asks Obama to specifically answer eleven questions about the decision to remove security personnel from Libya and how much the National Security Council was involved.

Issa's letter didn't pull any punches either as he declared the White House “has not been straightforward with the American people in the aftermath of the attack.”

According to The Hill, Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich said the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi should be a “bigger scandal than (former President) Nixon” because “no one died" at Watergate.

One could concur with that or apply it to something even more deadly: Operation Fast and Furious, where hundreds of people were murdered due to an operation that still has an ongoing investigation, in which even the Inspector General said it was impossible to get valuable information to determine the truth.

    All of you Obama lollygaggers...Obama has everything set up to imprison and hold any American (yes that includes you) without cause indefinitely. Read the following...

    The current foreseeable event which we will see the
    implementation of the use of these
    prision camps is the coming of the New World Order,
    led by the Shadow Government."
    Obama is a domestic enemy, war criminal and with the illegal war & Fast n' Furious he qualifies for the charge of Murder. He has given over "Authority" of the USA to the UN - a foreign entity making him a traitor.

    There over 600 prison camps in the United States, all fully operational and
    ready to receive prisoners. They are all staffed and even surrounded by
    full-time guards, but they are all empty. These camps are to be operated by FEMA
    (Federal Emergency Management Agency) should Martial Law need to be implemented
    in the United States.
    Here is a list of things the Government has already completed...why? Martial Law?
    The US government recently placed an order for pre-pkgd, long shelf-life meals that increase their food reserves by over 7,000%.

    Of course it's a bigger scandal that Watergate, no one died during watergate. The press have shown themselves to be partisan hacks again.

  • Bo Kassa

    It's the film strip stupid...Obama told us so.
    Fact is he was probably taking a nap in preparation for his fund raising trips and couldn't be bothered to actually do some Presidential leadership activities. After all he hasn't done one positive thing in the past three years and ten months so why start now. Oh by the way the war in Iran ended in October 2008 before he came into office will someone remind the liar in chief about that fact.

  • Warrior

    For letting the terrorists know we know their capabilities, Romney and his cohort Ryan should be imprisoned for collaborting with terrorists.

  • Lawerence

    Obama--- The Ambassador , two Navy Seals ,and American Aide were in Body Bags to be brought home ( four bumps in the road, five if we count Border Patrolman Brian Terry ) How did your campaign speech in Las Vegas go while all hell broke loose in Benghazi .??

  • The Scotsman

    The Clintons were NEVER good people. All their lives have been working toward a "New World Order", with them at the top. The Clintons are still lieing at every turn. Especially Hillary (as Sec't of State"). Obobblehead lies constantly. He can't open his mouth without lieing. Most of the time, all you have to do is "Think Hard" about what Obobblehead said, and how he said it and his body language.
    Liers are loosers!:

    sorry but cummings is an idiot.

    Worse than Watergate? Far worse! Watergate did not risk our national security, nor did it involve anyone getting murdered, as has happened in Bengazi. But there's another possibility to explain what happened in Bengazi, and why the Muslim-in-Chief refused to call it a terrorist attack even though he clearly knew it was. It's a possible explaination that the elected lying crooks in DC, (both parties) and the MSM dare not even mention.
    Suppose Obummer refused to call it a terrorist attack, (like he still refuses to call Ft. Hood a terrorist attack) even though he already had video evidence, simply because he refuses to offend him Muslim bothers? Yes, his Muslim BROTHERS, as in, i'm one of you.
    Someday, IMO, history will look back at this time and try to explain how the American people could be so weak, gullible, and dumb, as to actually elect a radical, foreign-born Muslim to be their president, especially at a time when we were at war with radical Islam. I wonder how the Leftists of the future will spin that.

    Thank-you Newt. While all hell is now breaking loose over the entire Middle-East
    and further into African and Asian countries, we in Europe ( Netherlands) are beginning to wonder when the war between the Shieits and the Soenies ( with so many frightened
    and displaced Christians between these 2 Islamitic groups), ...will spread to Europe!
    How many more American and European Embassies will be attacked in the near future?
    Obama had declared that the attack on your Embassy in Libya was "an act of terrorists",...
    while the whole Middle-East is exploding! Unless the governments of our Western World
    start working together as soon as possible, I fear that there will be a terrible war in
    the Middle-East in the very near future...between these 2 Islam groeps who have hated
    each other for centuries, and now hate Christians and Israel even more!
    I was very impressed with the calm and intelligent approach from Mitt Romney,
    during all 3 debates. As an enlightened economist he knows how to build up
    government reserves to stimulate economic growth, and I hope trade with Europe,
    which we have been missing for the last 4 years.!
    If Obama is re-elected, then America will become a 3rd. world Communist/Islamitic
    country, with a graduale introduction to the very cruel and primitive Sharia Law.
    Hallal foods and goods are getting more room in discount stores all over Europe,
    The Safe houses are full of young girls who have had to flee from their families,
    because they were threatened to leave their education or jobs, to be married off
    to an older man. To become pregnant as soon as possible, to produce
    "many sons for the Jihad".
    Wake up America, before it is too late for our Western Civilization!

    The question is "Is this bigger than Watergate?" Of course! Four Americans were killed, our property destroyed, and our flag burned. Yes, the Congress must start impeachment proceedings asap. Obama is the destroyer of America and he must first be stopped then tried for treason against our country. Hopefully, more and more Americans are waking up to what he is doing against our Constitution and our freedoms. Call your congressmen and Senators and ask them to start proceedings of impeachment of Obama. I don't know what the Republicans are waiting for, unless they don't want to bother, in case he loses, then they don't have to worry about anything.The way I see this is the Congressmen and women are all getting paid to do their jobs, (by our hard-earned tax dollars), and they are not doing their jobs and protecting our citizens and our country. So ask them to all "GET TO WORK!"

    Obama has been doing all these things since he got into the whitehouse, why hasn't he be impeached and should be before the election so he can't walk free of all his crimes to the American people. He should be in court and then sent to prison for a very long time, we all know he has done many crimes fro OUR Whitehouse !!!!!!!

  • Sue Marie

    Obama and his adminstration will get away with these scandals. The media will not investigate and Republicans who want answers are demonized by the Dems and Media. The sad truth is, many Americans will give Obama a pass while the Democrats blame Bush (which they have on fast and furious).

  • sturgiy

    any thing he says is suspect at this point to see what he will do to stay in the wh
    for 4 more as he has already sold his soul so what else is left ??? just us

  • Earl P. Holt III

    Obama was golfing. He doesn't even know where Libya is located, because Axelrod never bothered to tell him...

    The democrat s don't care about anyone unless they can vote and afterwords they call the people stupid. Obama the progressive party is gone after the election, if Romney wins the Blue Dogs will take back the party.
