State Department's Kennedy blocks security investigations

Patrick Kennedy, undersecretary for management at the State Department, answers questions as the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee investigates the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, Oct. 10, 2012. (AP)A State Department official at the center of the Benghazi controversy may also have called off a controversial inspector general probe.

Patrick Kennedy, the State Department's undersecretary for management, allegedly blocked diplomatic security investigations that may have cast the bureau in a negative light.

According to an internal memo prepared by the inspector general in October 2013 and obtained by the Washington Examiner, Kennedy personally called off an investigation into the ambassador to Belgium after allegations surfaced that the ambassador had solicited "sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children."

A former official with the State Department's office of inspector general said the obstruction of oversight went even further, noting that Kennedy was "good friends" with the acting inspector general, Harold Geisel. The former official requested anonymity to speak candidly about Kennedy's potential interference with inspector general probes.

Richard Higbie, a senior criminal investigator at the bureau of diplomatic security, said Kennedy's control of the bureau has been driven by a "political agenda."

Higbie said the fact that Kennedy has remained in his post despite years of whistleblower testimony against him has "stripped many State Department employees of hope that Kennedy's example will not become acceptable practice and that real cultural change will take place."

Kennedy has served as the undersecretary for management since 2007. That position gives him oversight of the State Department's record-keeping efforts.

Kennedy has been linked to the security failures that led to the 2011 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, the controversy involving Hillary Clinton's private emails and State Department projects that involved Clinton Foundation donors.

But Kennedy's links to potential scandals didn't end when Clinton left the State Department.

What are these Bastards trying to cover up. They all need to be fired. You can't trust any of them. America has become a state of corruption starting with an illegal President.

Sound more like treason to me. Send in the firing squad!

So why hasn't he been arrested yet?   He works for the American people and this cover up is wrong and probably criminal.  Oh, silly me.  I forgot.  He works for a criminal regime which makes up the laws as they go along.  IMO:  HANG THEM ALL.  LET GOD SORT IT OUT.

One more member of Obama's maggot brigade.

The State Dept. doesn't run things the people do and they work for us, if they don't comply with our requests they are not needed, defund the bastards and let them go home or jail.
