John Brennan, Leon Panetta, Robert Gates and Hillary Clinton to be appearing soon before Congress. Hasn’t the Administration sold out and betrayed their current agents and assets? Current events in Libya were predictable and preventable. (See Kappert Isle on Tumblr) Chris Stevens’ reports in Wikileaks are an invaluable source for documenting US incompetence and shedding light on why he is now dead and why North Africa is now exploding in our face.
