Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn't 'switched
sides in the War on Terror' and allowed $500 MILLION of weapons to reach
al-Qaeda militants, reveals damning report
Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top
military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in

The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in
bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1
million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said
More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary

George's report said the bonus program doesn't violate federal
regulations, but it's inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax
"These awards are designed to recognize and reward IRS employees for a
job well done, and that is appropriate, because the IRS should
encourage good performance," George said. "However, while not
prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for
failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS's
charge of ensuring the integrity of the system of tax administration."
If IRS employees and most of Obama's cabinet do not have to pay their taxes, why do we?

A degenerative eye disease slowly robbed Roger Pontz of his vision.
Diagnosed with retinitis pigmentosa as a teenager, Pontz has been
almost completely blind for years. Now, thanks to a high-tech procedure
that involved the surgical implantation of a "bionic eye," he's regained
enough of his eyesight to catch small glimpses of his wife, grandson
"It's awesome. It's exciting -- seeing something new every day,"
Pontz said during a recent appointment at the University of Michigan
