IG witness destroys Obama’s excuse

Quin Hillyer has the story in the Washington Times

We have found an exclusive witness who directly contradicts multiple aspects of the official White House explanation for firing AmeriCorps Inspector General Gerald Walpin.

Separately, one part of the White House explanation treads on exceedingly shaky ground that raises the specter of improper age discrimination.

This story has legs. L-o-0-0-0-0-0–0-0-n-g legs!

Leeden: From a hospital S.I.A.

(Somewhere in Iran)

Michael Leeden reports this message from a med student in Iran [NRO]

Last night, nine people died at our hospital and another 28 had gunshot wounds. All hospital employees were crying till dawn. They (government) removed the dead bodies on back of trucks, before we were even able to get their names or other information. What can you even say to the people who don’t even respect the dead. No one was allowed to speak to the wounded or get any information from them. This morning the faculty and the students protested by gathering at the lobby of the hospital where they were confronted by plain cloths anti-riot militia, who in turn closed off the hospital and imprisoned the staff. The extent of injuries are so grave, that despite being one of the most staffed emergency rooms, they’ve asked everyone to stay and help—I’m sure it will even be worst tonight. …

This issue is not about cheating (election) anymore. This is not about stealing votes anymore. The issue is about a vast injustice inflected on the people.

While the President washes his hands and speaks of not meddling, the situation is looking more and more like the Iranian Tiananmen.

It also reminds me that with all of the talk about “democracy”, very little is ever said about Liberty. The two words are often used in the same context, but their meanings are vastly different. Our emphasis should be on the latter.

Obama justifies illegal firing of IG Walpin

Major Garrett reports:

WASHINGTON — Responding to criticism from a Senate Democratic ally, President Obama explained why he fired the Inspector General of the AmeriCorps without the 30-day notification required by law, calling Gerald Walpin so “confused” and “disoriented” that there was reason to question “his capacity to serve.”

Lacking the capacity to serve?

Jeebus. So why is Joe Biden still around?


Walpin fires back: Obama explanation is “baseless”

Gerald Walpin, who until last week was the inspector general for the Corporation for National and Community Service, told FOXNews.com that part of Obama’s explanation was a “total lie” and that he feels he’s got a target on his back for political reasons.

“I am now the target of the most powerful man in this country, with an army of aides whose major responsibility today seems to be to attack me and get rid of me,” Walpin said.
