That’s what I thought when I saw this report at the Daily Caller. From the post:
A leaked State Department email indicates that officials were worried about the safety of House Oversight Committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa after Democrats revealed his plans for a secret trip to Libya this week.
Issa, a Republican from California, has safely returned from his fact-finding trip to the country as his committee continues to investigate the terrorist attacks that killed America’s ambassador and three others in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012.
CBS News reported Thursday on an email that quoted a Libyan national sharing “his concern and his opinion that Representative Issa should not come to Libya for his own safety.”
The email reports that the Libyan thinks, “the people who would harm Rep. Issa are the same people who conducted the Benghazi attacks.”
Before Issa’s trip, Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, issued a press release asking Issa to postpone his trip until he allows Democrats to join him.
The word out doing the circuit is that the scumbag Cummings only did this to prevent Issa from going without him and his buddies. Maybe I just expect the worst from the left, because my take was that this administration would love for someone to take out Issa, whom has been a thorn in the side of the criminals that make up practically the entire Obama administration.
The angle that Cummings did it for petty reasons makes for a fine cover, IMO, and while these people are just that petty, I worry that people that think they not only can use government agencies to target their political opposition, but also have the right to drone strike citizens without due process, wouldn’t have to go that far off the reservation to justify killing their political enemies. After all, these are the same people that would love to do things the way they are done in China, where enemies are treated harshly by the almighty state.
I really hope that this is just me being paranoid, but the Obama crime syndicate has been well protected by the LSM for a long time, and they could by now think they can get away with anything and everything, and believe me this gang thinks they are morally justified to do anything to keep power and win.
