Comment by Responsibility of WH Executive Leadership To Attend Daily Intel Meetings

September 21, 2012 @ 7:21 am

Well, while this information is very informative and should be part of US history curriculum in our schools as basic questions and answers student should be able to answer — unfortunately the WH executive eladership has chosen to unfurl a new flag for political fund raising and – a time when US flags are burning throughout the Middle east and the WH Executive leadership – this “Goldman Sachs WH” has spent $70,000 on Pakistani television ads with Ms. Hillary and this Rev Wright-Obama pulpit again apologizing to the same who kill and wound our US soldier, our youth ! I am so outraged !

There is nothing more important to talk about than these outright lies which both the US WH and State Dept – this Chicago cityu street slicker and Ms. Hillary who has – prostituted – herself to this “Chicago-Hollywood-washington Express” in charade and mockery of our country and while I shout “Treason” !! and truly mean it whereby as US citizen demanding a Congressional Hearing into the attack on our nation where embassy and four US citizens killed and a US Ambassador reportedly sodomized and dragged throught the street and We – apologize – I call upon tbe Joint Cheifs of Staff and the esteemed and patriot US flag officers and US service people to exert pressure on the Congress Now to cast this abhorrent – yes, abhorrent behavior before the good People of America and the world who seek leadership, not apology to Al Q who shreds the US flag over our embassy and replaces it with their flag and these blatant lies to the American people by the WH and State Depat leadership demand immediate investigation by Congressional Hearing –

In this post, you refer to “What kind of government have you given us” – We the People are the government and those srving us must be held accountable and if I could muster the suport as I know one indivdiual can be a majority and have these two arrested Ms. Hillary and the WH executive leadership for treason – held accountabvle for intentional betrayal of a trust; breach of faith, treachery where I call upon Congress to convene an immediate Congressional Hearing into the obvious blatant lies whereby WH and State intentionally and blatantly lied to We the People stating that the 911 attack on our country was by groups of people when in fact at 9:30p video shows differently and blaming such attack on gropups of people when in fact, intel strongly suggests other -

As a citizen of the United States who like all citizens of the US including and even more so, Congressional members on both side of the aisle, all are obligated to demand immediate accoiuntabilyt in thsese tempestuous times —

You ask Christopher, “What kind of government have you given us?” I ask, “What kind of governing do We enable by allowing such outright travesty”??

I shout – treason – and I mean it – I also am very serious in calling for a Congressional Hearing to recount the last events and hold everyone including Ms. Hillary and this flag altering rev Wright-Obama pulpit who continues to undermine the safety of our youth, some 68,000 troops by such outragious ads on pakistani television for a video which had nothing to do whatsoever with the attack on our embassy and the sodomizing and rutheless dragging of our US Ambassador through the streets and We apologize!

With regard to the media, this is another topic to discuss much related -
