In a very short period of time three scandals have rocked the Obama administration – Benghazi, the IRS, and the illegal seizure of AP reporters’ phone calls. The real truth, though, is that four scandals now beset the administration since there was no resolution to Fast and Furious due to Justice Department stonewalling.
But in spite of the fact that the mainstream media totally ignores Fast and Furious, which would make four scandals if the truth were important to elected officials and the mainstream media, a CIA official has told a Drudge Report editor that a fourth shoe is about to drop, make that the 5th shoe in the correct count, that has Obama political operatives at the White House literally shaking in their boots.
Weasel Zippers reported that Drudge Editor Joseph Curl stated that the source at CIA says that this is the one scandal that truly has the White House in a state of fear and panic. But as of yet no one has been told what the scandal entails.
The comment section at Weasel Zippers went wild with speculation. One reader wondered if the new scandal involves proof of massive voter fraud. Another speculated that the scandal revolves around the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens in the Benghazi debacle, that Stevens was perhaps sent to an outpost at Benghazi rather than to remain at his post at the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli. Had Stevens and his security detail remained in Tripoli, they would be alive today.
Why, then, was Stevens and his team sent to a very dangerous outpost at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi? The reader suggests that Obama and Hillary Clinton used Ambassador Stevens and other diplomats to run illegal arms from the Libyan rebels to the Syrian rebels, using the Turks as intermediaries.
The speculation surrounding the possible gun running scheme is a plausible one. It is no coincidence, then, that today U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., who chairs the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued a warning to Hillary Clinton, stating that she could be called back to provide testimony under oath. And it is also no coincidence that in private circles inside the beltway the name of former CIA Director David Petraeus keeps coming up as one who may hold the key to the scandal and could be called back to testify before the committee.
Petraeus has already struck fear in the minds of administration officials when he leaked information to the effect that when he saw the official administration talking points early on concerning the Benghazi massacre, he stated to an aid that he was not willing to use any of that information. Curiously, shortly afterward news was leaked to the press about his affair, which led to his resignation. Some believe that Petraeus would like to provide further testimony to Congress in order to clear his name and to call to account Obama officials who concocted a sordid fiction to explain the massacre away.
But no one at this point can be certain even of that explanation.
One thing is for certain, however. The CIA source that provided top secret information that a mega-scandal is brewing has been 100 percent reliable in the past when providing hot tips concerning the murky underbelly of Washington, D.C.
