Sestak BETRAYS The Democratic Party



Mere days prior to the hotly contested election, and this man was joining the Republican chorus on Benghazi. Since then, he's voiced even more criticisms. With friends like this, who needs enemies?

42. He was on Chris Hayes saying this about Behghazi:

SESTAK: ... there`s more than enough evidence to say that this -- the
administration did not handle this well. When you have a request come in
for more security, whether it would have made a difference or not, after
the U.N. office, the Red Cross office, the British ambassador had all been
attacked (INAUDIBLE) embassy, a hole had been blown in the wall of that
compound or consulate earlier -- there should be accountability,
responsibility by this administration on that.

On the second issue, I think when Representative Thornberry, a
Republican on the House Intelligence Committee, actually says, You know,
what the intelligence community was telling us, General Petraeus, is
exactly what the administration was putting out to the public -- people
tend to forget.

I worked in the National Security Council, headed Deep Blue,
(INAUDIBLE) antiterrorism unit -- that there are no one-armed intelligence
officers. They`re always saying, On the one hand, but on the other hand...

(CROSSTALK)

SESTAK: The issue is this. It`s hard to (INAUDIBLE) assertion of
conspiracy or anything or to say the policy`s unraveling because
intelligence agencies maybe didn`t have it right. There is no assertion
that can be made of conspiracy by these professionals. That`s what`s
missing in this piece. General Petraeus misrepresenting something? No
way.

I never voted for him either. I knew someone who worked for his campaign a while. He was mean and verbally abusive. I was also told that he paid pretty little and demanded long hours for it.

39. Welcome! Please listen to an excerpt from Obama's speech last night.

This is very interesting and raises questions as to whether the President's direct
orders may have not been followed.

Did anyone hear Obama's speech in Yangon, Myanmar last night? Listen to his remarks
at the 10:15 point on the video. They struck me last night when I heard his speech live
and this post brings them to mind again. The speech itself was great.

50. New member attempting to divide the forums

by pitting Democrat against Democrat.

This was Sestak's "betrayal" of the Democratic party:



http://www.delcotimes.com/articles/2012/10/31/opinion/doc509095611a581617002967.txt

If you have serious questions about what happened in Benghazi on Sept. 11, you are not alone. Former admiral, congressman and Democrat Joe Sestak has questions, too.

“There are questions the administration needs to answer,” Sestak said Monday morning as Hurricane Sandy rolled into Delco. “Put politics aside, something did go wrong.”

snip

Sestak is no novice when it comes to these matters. He worked with the National Security Council in the Clinton White House and was a chief strategist for “Deep Blue,” the Navy’s anti-terrorism unit.


An anti-terrorism expert, one who might be running as the Democratic candidate for PA governor in 2014, raises obvious questions concerning the matter, and a new "concerned" forum member attempts to rile up DU members against him.

There's an old political strategy for this sort of thing: it's called "divide-and-conquer".
