~ Where the Sun Will Never Set on Our liberty ~
I was sitting at my desk thinking about the reporting since September 2012, I thought about the weirdest of all and the worst of all for me personally! I remembered a disturbing phone call from a good friend in the Obama Administration. I have known this friend for years. The call was a short time after 9/11 (maybe Oct. 2012?) In the call, my friend told me that my colleague Jennifer Griffin, who was aggressively reporting on Benghazi, was wrong and that, as a favor to me, my friend in the Administration was telling me so that I could tell Jennifer so that she did not ruin her career. My friend was telling me to tell Jennifer to stop her reporting. Ruin her career? In 20 plus years, I have never received a call to try and shut down a colleague – not that I even could – this was a first. Here is what I know: Jennifer is a class act….experienced..and a very responsible journalist. One of the absolute best in the business – no axe to grind, she just wants the facts. I told my friend before I go to Jennifer telling her she is wrong, I need proof she is wrong, strong proof and you need to be specific – what are you saying she is getting wrong? We went around and around — including the statement again that this was just a call as a favor to Jennifer and me to save Jennifer’s career from reporting incorrect information. I got no proof. Zero. I smelled a rat. Favor to me? Hardly. My friend was trying to use me. I feel bad that a friend did that to me, tried to use me for a dirty reason. I knew then — and it is now confirmed by BIPARTISAN Senate Intelligence Committee — Jennifer was getting her facts right. I think it is really low for the Administration to stoop this low.
Thanks for posting this. The brain dead think Fox News is viciously anti Obama. That makes zero sense on many fronts. First of all on Fox News liberals get a chance to say their arguments. It is just.... they have none. The other issue is that Fox News is clearly ALSO being controlled by the Mad Hatter in Washington. Some evidence:
One gets tired of other news places changing their tune. 60 minutes did something on Benghazi and later said they were sorry. Sorry? I did not watch it. But Benghazi was such horror on so many fronts, defending Benghazi does not sit well with me. And yes, it does seem some internet articles just disappear. One begins to think that anything written against the Feurher is written in disappearing ink.
I thought it very interesting as Greta is not a right leaner. For her to come forward with this shows just how tired people are becoming with this thug administration! I am glad she did!
Agreed Robin. She is a closet liberal. Wait... she is in a closet? Never mind. I withdraw the visual image... there... gone.
Sorry, Robin, but for to have NOT come forward when this happened makes her as guilty as any in the coverup. She ranks up there with the covert BS we see from this White House occupied by blacks-no-cap.
I have a question that may have been asked and answered somewhere, but I didn't see it. I didn't see the clip on Greta's show either. Here is my question, followed by a statement.
WHY did Greta wait over a year to tell her viewers about this?
Now, my statement. Greta is as complicit as anyone in sweeping this under the rug prior to the 2012 election! Does she really expect us to believe that this just occurred to her recently? That she just couldn't put a finger on what it was that was bothering her? GIMME A FRIGGIN' BREAK! AND GIVE AMERICANS MORE CREDIT FOR INTELLIGENCE!
Why did Greta not come out sooner? Excellent question JG, and the same one that I want answered!
Thanks, kwic. I wonder how much digging she did on this one. Like I said to JB, it sounds like she is trying to board a train that has left the station!
The left (Times is a left publication, for sure) will censor anything that disagrees with their viewpoint. I'm moving your post back up to the top. Thanks!
RE: Why did she wait until now?
Sometimes events are not connected to other things well enough to voice suspicion about cause and effect. Sometimes knowing about other events suggests a more solid connection than we might have thought.
Did she have a "tipping" point?
I don't know if she had a tipping point. She received a call strongly suggesting that she try to shut up a colleague. And no bells went off at that time? I remember that Greta was always skeptical about the 'video caused this all' story of the left. She smelled a rat then. Does the story reveal whether or not she shared this with Jennifer Griffin, not to warn her off the story, but to recount what call she received?
To me, it looks like she is trying to board a train that has already left the station.
Sorry, insufficient data for my processor. :(
