I know EXACTLY why the Rethugs have pulled this Rice business...

but if I post it, all the anti-conspiracy folk here are going to come out, demand that the thread be locked, tell me to go to Creative Speculation, etc.

They are trying to forestall and divert from the TRUTH...and you know what? The truth will set you free, but first it will make you very miserable.

4. They want to impeach Obama and they're laying the groundwork

 

Same shit as with Bill Clinton: They couldn't keep him from getting reelected, so they spent the fall of '98 making a mockery of the Constitution by putting on a circus. Now they're getting ready for Act II.

5. Most all politics is a conspiracy...local, national, global...to one extent or other.

As I understand conspiracy, it is a small power group making decisions surreptitiously for or against a larger group...that primarily benefit the smaller group at the expense of the larger group.

8. Exactly. How is it people can't believe other people can hatch a plan and keep it a secret?

It does take giving up ones illusions, but one would think those who follow politics would have already done that.

6. There is very little coordination going on with this Benghazi business. Some, sure, but not much.

It's just a relative handful of old, white men flailing about trying to maintain their relevance. There isn't much logic or strategy to it, IMO. It's 'fashionable' to be an old, white man against Rice.

On edit: okay, so Susan Collins is against her, as well. But, again, I don't see strategy, I see flailing.

7. If I can add to the mix. My thought is they want Sen. Kerry named

SOS, Kerry gives up his senate seat in Mass., then Scott Brown runs for Kerry's senate seat. Maybe yes, maybe no.

10. It's much bigger than all that...

it has to do with the TRUTH of Benghazi and its root causes. They DARE not have this exposed. That's why they brought out what is left of their 'big guns', such as they are.

15. Let me guess

CIA and DoD SOC were running a major operation in Libya to collect and ship arms and Salafist fighters to Syria.

The Benghazi attackers obtained enough information in the CIA safe house to roll up the operation.

The four casualties at the embassy were only the tip of the iceberg, with a large number of hired Libyans, contractors from various places, and a number of SOC operators also killed and the rest fled the country. There may even have been information about other operations in North Africa and operations by US allies, especially the UK and Israel, that was also compromised.

It was a major defeat for US secret operations.

people about Benghazi, which I know I'd never be able to post here (because of my sources). Hint: The real culprits are not in Egypt.

Obama should not negotiate with toddlers.

24. I may be wrong, but I think the outline is

that the Benghazi attack was fomented by Republican-backed CIA forces in an attempt to embarrass Obama on the eve of the election. It isn't outside of the realm of possibilities, but is entirely not provable.

25. Okay so the election is over, we won.

Why is this still going on then, you can't really embarrass a guy who never has to run again, and even if they were going the impeachments angle, 3... possibly 4 senators can't make that happen alone. Long term this is bad for those 4 senators since they are ignoring the fiscal bump. Also the people who are damaged by CIA/Ghazigate have been repubs so far.

Further up the post someone mentioned "Flailing" and I feel like this is exactly what is now going on. They are just trying to get the populous to bite on some issue and so far it's not working.

27. To keep us all from finding out?

I don't know, I'm not a subscriber to the many theories.

I am of the mind that this is the first weakness that this administration has shown that is even close to exploitable, so they are trying to exploit, first to win the election and now in an effort to weaken the President after an impressive victory. With McCain, I think it's personal.

23. Part of this is about John Kerry. They are all willing to endorse Kerry for SOS.

They want him out of that seat badly. However, he still may leave anyway to take Sec of Defense. Really kind of stupid.
The crap with Rice is really ridiculous since she did not have to give up classified info to begin with.

28. That's pure dog and pony show. They know Rice is far more hawkish than Kerry.

They now have Obama cornered and have the Dems circling the wagons for Rice and the left media manipulated into going along and even smearing Kerry as an added bonus.

30. I think President Obama wanted Rice to begin with, though Kerry has been lobbying for the job

as well. The speculation as to who would become the next SOS started before Benghazi ever happened. And Obama was pretty high on her then too.

32. Kerry has NOT been 'lobbying for the job'. That's corpmedia repeating planted talking points.

Anyone who believes this group of Republicans are being honest needs to have their heads examined.
