Do people who want the House Select Committee on Benghazi to get to the truth have something new to be concerned about? This week, it was announced that Lt. Gen. Dana K. Chipman (Ret) was named chief counsel to the Committee. This may be a great choice but there is a relationship Chipman has with a man whose actions during the attack are a primary concern of the Committee.
Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Martin Dempsey was castigated strongly in a Senate Select Committee report on the U.S. military’s response during the Benghazi attacks, earlier this year. Dempsey also hosted Chipman’s retirement ceremony last year. It is not known the extent of the relationship between Chipman and Dempsey but that Chipman would have Dempsey host his retirement ceremony is a good place to start.
It is a relationship that should be vetted, even if it turns out there is nothing to it. In any event, this development should serve as a red flag for anyone who wants justice on Benghazi.
When the committee was formed, Philip Kiko was named Executive Director and also raises red flags. Read more about that here.
Segment 1 (14:00 mark): After a diatribe over the dysfunctionality of the studio equipment, Barrack gets to the issue of the Missouri State Senator who wants County Prosecutor Bob McCulloch off the Michael Brown case. Her reason for not wanting McCulloch prosecuting Police Officer Darren Wilson is because black people have had a problem with him in the past. What St. Senator Jamilah Nasheed doesn’t say is that in 2008, McCulloch was part of the Barack Obama Truth Squad.
Segment 2 (25:30 mark): What are the reasons why Barack Obama refers to our enemies in Iraq and Syria as ISIL instead of ISIS? Is it political? Is it because ISIL claims dominion over a future caliphate that includes Israel? Is it because Obama’s is sending dog whistles out to the Caliphate crowd? Where does Turkey come into play?
Segment 3 (36:57 mark): This is when the topic of Benghazi Select Committee’s new chief counsel Lt. Gen. Dana Chipman comes up. Also, a clip from Sen. Dianne Feinstein, chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee. Last year at this time, Feinstein boasted about knowing more than her constituents when it came calling for air strikes on Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. One year later, Feinstein was wrong.
