Jill Kelly took multiple flights at taxpayer expense

Tampa, Florida -- Not only did Jill Kelley have MacDill's top brass over at her house, but 10 News has learned she also took multiple flights on military aircraft at taxpayer expense.

In at least one instance, Kelley flew to the nation's capital with General John Allen, the commander of US forces in Afghanistan.

Top officers have access to VIP planes like the C-40, a sort of mini-Air Force One with special communications gear. There's also a modified corporate jet, the C-37A, reserved for high-level officers.

10 News has made numerous requests for flight records to see just how many times Kelley has flown on government-owned planes, but so far the Pentagon says it has not been able to track down the answer.

It's also possible officials simply don't want to release that information or that they didn't keep track of who was flying with some of the country's top military leaders.

Crusader Castles, rising out of the plain, projecting force...

America`s new `bunker` embassies

Super Embassy! Fortress Empire Outpost: Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Germany, & England.

Historically... these formidable outposts are... crusader castles, rising out of the plain, projecting superior force, and grimly dominating all they behold...

The massively fortified $700m Baghdad embassy, the biggest US mission in the world with 1,200 employees, was dogged by construction delays and militant attacks before it finally opened in January. Now even the state department`s own inspector-general has ruled that the 21-building, 41-hectare encampment, is too big.

The Kabul embassy, which is negotiating an $87m purchase of 12 to 16 hectares... The guards were employed by another private security firm, ArmorGroup.

... US embassy in Berlin... Architectural experts queued up to lambast the squat, custard-coloured but bomb-proof building, deriding it as a klotz (lump) built by barbarians.

London. US embassy... prepares to move to a brand-new concrete citadel. [Stronger than... More powerful than...]

When America speaks to... Muslims... it`s shouting down from the battlements.

Personally, I Think Hillary Is Up To Her Neck In This Mess

I think she either ordered the massacre or Obama had her see to it that Ambassador Stevens was sacrificed for another agenda or to hide secret prisons or detention centers..

The congress must question Hillary Clinton. I agree with one of the comments below. There is a distraction for sure.

The fact that any of this

is being made public via the MSM tells me it's a distraction. If they wanted it to remain a secret it would still be a secret.

So I wonder what "fix" will be put in place to prevent such atrocities in the future? Something that will curtail our freedoms, I'm sure.

The law cannot make a wicked person virtuous…God’s grace alone can accomplish such a thing.

Empire Sales pitch: America`s new `bunker` embassies.

News to fortify embassies by.

America`s new `bunker` embassies

AFTER the US Congress agreed to a $7.5bn aid package for Pakistan this autumn, the Obama administration was taken aback by the seemingly ungrateful reaction of its intended recipients. But particular hostility was directed at US plans to spend more than $800m on building a new, heavily fortified, embassy in Islamabad, to be protected by private security contractor DynCorp.

The activities of contractors in Iraq, notably Blackwater, have become notorious in the Muslim world. Expanded US “bunker consulates” were also announced in Lahore and Peshawar. The US says the facilities are needed because old premises are insecure and it must accommodate the “civilian surge” of diplomats and officials into Pakistan and Afghanistan ordered by Barack Obama. But the American expansion in Islamabad mirrors similar developments in other Muslim and foreign capitals that are focal points for the Pentagon`s “long war” against Islamist extremism.

Shocked by the 1998 Al Qaeda attacks on its Nairobi and Dar es Salaam embassies, the US has opened 68 new embassies and overseas facilities since 2001 and has 29 under design and construction, the State Department`s bureau of overseas buildings operations says. Total worldwide spending on embassy replacement has been put at $17.5bn.

In Kabul, Baghdad, Jakarta, Cairo and beyond, in `allied` cities such as London and Berlin, Washington is building, reinforcing or expanding slab-walled, fortress-like embassies that act as regional overseas HQs, centers of influence and intelligence-gathering, and problematic symbols of superpower.

Historically speaking, these formidable outposts are the 21st century equivalent of crusader castles, rising out of the plain, projecting superior force, and grimly dominating all they behold. As in Pakistan, the new strongholds attract plenty of criticism, acting almost as magnets for trouble. ....

Sick to my stomach

This whole thing smells of Benghazi cover up and it makes me sick to my stomach that an Army General is involved. I'm not shocked, I'm just tired of the same script.

We need to make arrests.
