Accuracy in Media

Revelations at Wednesday’s Benghazi hearings in Congress were “just the tip of the iceberg,” said Admiral James Lyons (Ret.). I caught up with Admiral Lyons, the former Commander-in-Chief of the U.S. Pacific Fleet and senior U.S. military representative to the United Nations, at a press conference in Washington today, and asked him a few questions.

“We failed to protect those Americans who were under attack. There’s no other way to describe it,” said Lyons. Referring to the Obama administration’s original story that it was the anti-Islam video that sparked a demonstration, which led to the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans, Lyons said, “As Richard Nixon found out, you don’t lie to the American public. Hopefully that theme will be picked up and carried on, and those that were perpetuating the lie will be held accountable. Resignation does come to mind.”

Back in January, I had a much longer discussion with the retired admiral, about Benghazi, Hillary Clinton’s testimony and question, “What difference does it make?,” the Arab Spring, the Muslim Brotherhood, the Law of the Sea Treaty and much more. Adm. Lyons is a national treasure who candidly speaks his mind.

    Hi Roger!

    I think many people are overlooking the “straw-men” Hillary artfully set as the predicate in the two sentences precedingher now famous question to Sen Ron Johnson: “With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference does it make?”

    Her carefully rehearsed “outburst” was formulated to refocus attention back onto the Republicans who were grilling her and to paint THEM as “out to get her”. She was essentially saying: “Were four Americans dead because of a protest or because of a spur of the moment killing? What difference does it make?” Those of us who are following the minute details of the 9/11/2012 crisis heard: “Were four Americans dead because of a protest or an attack? What difference does it make?”

    Hillary is expert at setting up her “sound bites”…

    Keep up the great job at AIM,

  • We’re on a long slow grind to the truth. Deflection, suppression, and misrepresentation will not prevail. Benghazi was the capstone of a larger body of work by President Obama.

  • Starland sound

    Nixon may have been a schmuck, but at least he had the character to resign and not drag the American people nor his office through the disgrace of an impeachment, Clinton had no such character and gladly trashed everything. obama will do the same, impeachment isn’t enough, he needs to be removed from office (and hillary prosecuted)

    Next sacrificial lamb please.

    Lets hope this iceberg will sink the Titanic failure in our White House and send him back to Kenya where he belongs.

    If Hillary, Susan, Nancy and Harry were the ones in Benghazi, would they also be classified ‘expendable?’

  • we need to look at what the benghazi mission was doing ,giving weapons,guns aid to muslim brotherhood ,al-qaida ,the same people that attack the usa on 9/11 ,the same people that hate us so much they are willing to die to prove it
    that is why the real coverup is all about,also there was a attack at the mission
    a short time befor , a hole was made in wall , ,so they were no improvment
    made in preventing another attack ,they must have known that a attack was coming

    Their is a silver lining to this fiasco, Clinton’s chances in 2016 is somewhat diminished. And I think, after watching the hearing, I saw an excellent opponent to run against her. Issa came off as the alpha adult at that hearings, very professional, demonstrating a huge difference between himself, and the democrats.

  • Chuck Weaver

    Wel said. when i open this story on facebook, Nixon and his character compa red to obama came to mind. As you said Nixon was a schmuck, but he had more character in his little finger than obama has in his whole body. Nixon loved this country’, obama loves obama.

    Yes…..and the Nation would benefit from that consumption of expendables!

  • CONCERENED AMERICAN

    THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT NO MORE LIES AND HE NEEDS TO BE PUT OUT OF OFFICE

  • Bingo, Harold. There are so many “irons” sticking out of that fire it looks like “spring roundup time on the ranch”!

  • KLAUS11

    LET US NOT FORGET THAT SHILLARY IS A BILDERBERG PROTÉGÉ AS WELL AS A MEMBER OF THE COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS JUST LIKE HER HORNY HUBBY WAS AND AS SUCH WILL ENJOY
    PROTECTION YOU CANNOT IMAGINE. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PUPPETS IN THE WHITE HOUSE,REGARDLESS OF ANY POLITICAL AFFILIATION (EXCEPTION WAS KENNEDY AND YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO HIM).
    HUCKEBEE PREDICTED THAT THE ILLEGAL KENYAN WILL NOT BE FINISHING HIS TERM; LET US HOPE HE IS CORRECT.

  • Since Obama is a communist and a devout Muslim it becomes quite obvious that he used his 6 Muslim Brotherhood advisors, who have close links with Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, to deliver heavy weapons to the rebels and the terrorist fighting with them in Libya. Chris Stevens knew too much about it and Obama had him assassinated. Obama’s propaganda media has cooperated, as usual, to try to minimize the magnitude of slaughter with set up shows for the players to air their despicable cover up propaganda. Obama should be hung for treason or confined to solitary confinement for life.

  • You are right on. The whole Obama regime is guilty of aiding and abetting treason, usurping of the presidency, numerous violations of our Constitution, voter fraud and refusing requested documents to be presented for felonious offenses.

  • Rex Crouch

    We’re going to have to send the Senate Sergeant at Arms to the White House to CUFF Obama.

  • What a shame I tried to listen to the accompanying video and the sound is not working. I don’t think the truth of this matter is going to come easy. Obama and Co. seem to think that they can operate with impunity. I think we the American people need to show them otherwise!

  • JimJam911

    Obama should be impeached; he lacks even the slightest ability to lead in truth. As for Hillary Clinton – to be placed on trial with Death Sentence recommendation. Don’t think so? Ask relatives of those who died at Benghazi on September 11.

  • I actually do not have a problem with Nixon the Democrats were running a prostitution blackmail ring at the Watergate and also taking money from Communist. They deserved to be investigated. He should have told the investigation against him to take their request for his tapes and stick it where the sun does not shine and simply destroyed them. He has a right to confidentiality with the people he speaks to.
