Panetta: 'Nobody Bears the Fault' for Benghazi
October 14th, 2014 12:48 PM
Those who see Leon Panetta as a stalking horse for Hillary Clinton just got some more ammunition for their argument. Last week, Panetta helped distance Hillary from President Obama's foreign policy failures by blasting Obama for mistakes in Syria and Iraq.

Scarborough: Panetta Reveals 'Lack of Character' For Criticizing Obama
October 10th, 2014 7:32 AM
Remember when dissent was patriotic? When people like Hillary Clinton screeched that "we have a right to disagree with any administration?" Forget about it. That's so, like, 2003. You know, when George W. Bush was President.
