Issa won't let Ambassador Pickering testify.....why do you suppose that is?
Because he wanted a closed interview first so they could discuss the investigation. When detectives interview people in a case they do it separately as well so they don't share stories. That's the only way to know if they're contradicting each other.
Mullen wasn't allowed either, and he did the investigation! They only wanted people who would tow their line. Otherwise, they would have let Mullen and Pickering testify in public, in front of WE THE PEOPLE. Under oath, unlike Bush and Cheney.
They were asked to testify publicly, but only after they first gave recorded private interviews, which they refused to do. That is precisely how an investigator catches people not telling the truth. Why would they refuse to talk privately.
Because they are public figures. Public deserved to know! http://thelead.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/16/first-on-c...
Issa is playing dirty pool. Put it in the open. If anyone lies--he does.
You don't have an honest bone in your body do you - that is false http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2013/05/12/...
Precisely...Nobody told him he couldn't testify.
Issa prevented Mullen and Pickering......he can prove me wrong by allowing them to testify now. No closed doors, no secrecy....now, and open, But Issa won't. He's hiding the truth, because it hurts the neo-con wing of stay-behinds, of which he is one
Why won't they testify privately first on the official record. Because during a trial people like their statements they made to investigators read back to them without coordinating them first.
It's not a trial! It's the operation of the US gvt, and they are treating members of it like criminals! Mullen did the investigation. Pickering is the ambassador. Yet: they need to be vetted like thugs? Errrm, just because Issa is a felon-they not!
It is an investigation into the events that took place. And if one person is covering, you need to separate them and get them on the record. The dems could have called him as a witness. Or they could have given congress the names of the survivors.
You can believe that all you want. I find it disgusting and typical of Darrell Issa. There were 13 embassy attacks during Bush and the R's were in charge. Where were the hearing then, accusing Bush? It's political witch hunt, and it makes me sick.
Those attacks all had investigations that were not with held from congress. Since when does congress accept an investigation into an attack on sovereign territory from a political appointee without access to witnesses and their testimony.
What are you talking about. There where numerous congressional investigations. Nobody prohibited survivors and witnesses from testifying and none of their names were withheld from congress.
Wrong. "The Commission’s co-chairs said that the CIA (and likely the White House) “obstructed our investigation” http://www.zerohedge.com/contributed/2013-01-31/91...
Did you even read your own post. This is not even remotely comparable. The crux are accusations of how confessions were obtained in terms of tactics and obtaining confessions of terrorists. This was not disallowing any congressional inquiry at all.

No--that was the Cheney wing of the CIA. Prez Obama put a stop to that. It's in the news. You really have no clue who the enemy is, do you?
Yeah the enemy is YOU. Uninformed, unreasoning small minds who are blind to the truth and the facts but glum on to only what they want to hear. Zombies are better company, at least they desire brains.
I'm copying this, and next time poor Baggers cry that they and only they are persecuted ....Imma show this response of yours.
No persecution - just calling a spade a spade. At least I use words that are not considered profanity which appears is the only thing you are good at.
Where is one profanity word from me ? Have I personally attacked anyone?I have less freedom of speech than many of you, who do.Sorry--your victim thing is getting old. You lost an election, too bad. Get over it, and stop trying anything to ruin Prez.
And what does "poor Baggers" mean?. Of course you mean "tea baggers" which if you don't think is profanity you are sicker than I give you credit for. Not a personal attack on anyone who considers him/her self a member of the "tea Party"?guess again.
Where did the name come from? Republicans, who sent tea bags to Democrats--as in Boston tea party.If you can't own it, that's not my issue.When a fellow R just recently wrote hub: Liberals hate America-do you consider that profanity? Or is that cool?
You are really pathetic. The more you say the more you prove that true.
uhhuh. Pathetic, idiot, low intelligence, hate America, smoking something and dumbed down. And you poor fellas can't take being called Baggers. How about thin-skinned?
No it's your rationalization of why u use t-bagger by falsely claiming republicans send tea bags to Dems. So I suppose you think that since some Negroes call each other the "N" word it is OK for you to call Obama the "N" word? U are pathetic!

listen to right wing talk much?
Right wing talk? this is a video of a grieving mother - you think that represents right wing talk? What are you smoking?
"Barachio Obama, Hil liar y, Bite me Biden, Pan dor etta, and Susan not so nice Rice" is what I was referring to. Straight outta any talk radio or righty blog.(or Fox news, for that matter) Tis all the same.
Shows what you know about your phoney talk radio or blog claim. Barachio Obama, Hil liar y, Pan dor etta, and Susan not so nice Rice are all my own creations right here on hub pages and bite me biden was coined by Gen. Stanley McChrystal...pathetic

Personally, I don't consider the CIA to be American policy. And I rather think this exercise was done to make Obama look bad, and help RMoney get in. An Obama October Surprise. And,really-RMoney did try to use it in the debate.Flabbergasted it failed
Ya, right. So why did Biden tell all of us that it Navy Seal Team 6 that killed Bin Laden? Seal teams identity are top secret. Seal Team 6 are now dead after thanks to Biden. You give these clowns to much credit.
To be honest,I think Bin Laden died many years ago, like Bhutto said. 2001, maybe. I don't know what that was, or who it was they killed over there. But the "meme" has to be preserved: Bin Laden did 9/11, now he's dead. I don't believe it-fairy-tale.

The Shark says
yeah--he actually shows the bodies coming home in caskets, unlike Bush, who had a media black-out.How many died from Iraq? 5,000+? 9/11? 3,000. EMBASSY ATTACKS...60! How come no hearings then? Afghan-troops pulling out 2014. Bush starts/Obama ends.
So we announce the pull out date so the enemy can lay low and wait for us to leave, that's a strategy. Let's see, hmmmmm, Gen Eisenhower has jus announced that US will be pulling out of the European theater on Jan 1st 1943.
We had to leave, because the iraqis wouldnt give us immunity for our crimes. Bush legacy.
