A guest on WMAL, this morning, Washington power attorney Joe DiGenova was full of interesting information on Benghazi and the NSA scandal.
He told the hosts that the Benghazi “phony” scandal is growing quietly behind the scenes – people are coming of the woodwork to talk to him about it and at least 2 major networks (I’m guessing Fox and CNN) are “fully engaged” in trying to uncover more information about Benghazi. He says “we are being helpful with that”, meaning “people who know things” are cooperating with reporters:
All I can tell you is that people are coming out of the woodwork from both active and retired areas of government service – I’m not gonna be more specific than that.
In fact, what’s happening is The Benghazi ‘phony scandal’, as the president and his minions have called it, is actually growing quietly behind the scenes because now, major networks – at least two – are fully engaged in deep stories trying to uncover more information and we are being helpful.
He also revealed that they are uncovering a lot more about domestic spying:
We’re discovering information about surveillance programs…the NSA looks like it’s going to be the tip of the iceberg.
…What’s happening is that as a result of people coming forward just to talk about Benghazi, we are learning ‘things’ about other things the government is doing that it probably shouldn’t be doing domestically.
As far as the Hasan trial goes, WMAL’s Larry O’Connor asked, if there was any argument to justify not calling what happened down at Ft Hood a terror attack?
DiGenova did not pull any punches, here.
“No, the only argument that can be made is to protect the beliefs of the president and the people around him and the hierarchy at the Pentagon who do everything they can to avoid calling Islamic terrorism Islamic terrorism. I think the president’s position is an embarrassment, and as Commander in Chief – for him to allow this to continue to be called “workplace violence” when all he has to do is call the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs, Mr Dempsey, and say end this today – I want these people to receive their benefits….I think it’s quite startling that the president hasn’t done that, that is an embarrassment to our country, and it’s one of the reasons that the people in the military of this country, that we have learned – Victoria and I – from talking to them now as a result of Benghazi, are absolutely embarrassed by their Commander in Chief.”
