“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” Clinton responded, raising her voice at Johnson, who continued to interrupt her. “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk last night who decided to kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”
Yeah, there’s just this massive lying that went on for weeks and months. Nothing too serious.
Nothing to see here. Stop picking on me!
Gee, when George W Bush did something similar with “Yellow Cake from Niger” (an “intelligence failure”) the Left spend years trying to “get him” and impeach him and destroy him utterly.
Here, they just want us to leave them alone and stop picking on them. Poor Bastards.
They just lied like a Persian rug. But because they are the superior race that can never be wrong and never ever take responsibility for being wrong it’s just being nasty to call them on the carpet for lying.
She blames Congress (aka Republicans!, after all, doesn’t every liberal politician) for a lack of funding for the embassy. Yet it it was the State Department itself that decided that the security would be pulled.
The “War on Terror” was over. We won! 🙂
“The Only Person That’s In Jail Right Now Is The Filmmaker” Rep. Dana Rohrbacher.
And He didn’t even do it! 🙂
As a reminder:
“I want to take a moment to take moment to address the video circulating on the internet that has led to these protests.“
“To us, to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion and to provoke rage,” Clinton said. “But as I said yesterday there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence.”
The Obama administration also used $70,000 in taxpayer money to purchase an advertisement apologizing for the video on Pakistani television. The ad included an official message from the President of the United States Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Clinton said, adding that she directed the response to the attack on 9/11, briefed President Obama and stood in the Rose Garden with him when he called it “a terrorist attack” on 9/12.
And we won’t even get into Ambassador Rice who was dutiful stooge who lied repeatedly on TV for days on end and was obvious promised a promotion if she did so when she was nominated for his Cabinet not long after. Fortunately, for us she didn’t get her booby prize.
But yet for weeks on end they blamed an Internet trailer and some of the more extreme on the left blame the “Congress” (aka Republicans) for it when that excuse was exposed as utter hogwash.
Today Clinton washed her hands of the situation, saying she did not choose Rice and did not help with talking points for her media appearances.
“People have accused Ambassador Rice and the administration of misleading Americans…nothing could be further than the truth,” Clinton said. “I wasn’t involved in the talking points process.”
Clinton also said that nobody in the administration was or is “stuck on talking points.”
An incumbent president covered up the truth about the murder of a U.S. ambassador and three other American personnel during the climax of his re-election campaign, even puppeteered his United Nations ambassador to echo the lie on five TV shows, all to cover up the incompetence of the Obama administration’s counter-terrorism policies.
Anything that distracted from Obama’s re-election message that “Osama bin Laden is dead” couldn’t be let out if the president’s re-election was to be assured.
Moreover, in Hillary’s afternoon testimony an unrelenting Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., reduced her to floundering that “I may be going beyond my brief here,” and to contradicting sworn testimony by deputy assistant secretary of state Charlene Lamb that the State Department observed what was happening at the U.S. facility in Benghazi in close to real time.
Instead of apologizing to the American people for the lies and her disheveled management of the State Department, Hillary used her testimony to shout at Republicans with a teary eye on 2016.
Exposing deceitfulness and incompetence in government makes a huge difference, Madam Secretary. (IBD)
But she a Liberal and Liberals are supposed to be able to get away with anything, after all because they are the superior life form capable of so much more than you petty little people.
Reps. Dana Rohrabacher, Matt Salmon and Mo Brooks mentioned the anti-Islam film originally blamed for the attack. Clinton danced around the subject by saying the investigation into what happened in Benghazi is ongoing. (townhall)
Aside: I voted for Matt Salmon when he ran against Janet “Big Sis” Napolitano for governor of Arizona. Love that guy.
“We have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people but what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing is still unknown,” Clinton said.
So if you have no doubt they were terrorist why were you blaming a Los Angeles Internet Filmmaker for WEEKS??
Oh right, there was a re-coronation to complete. 🙂
Then ends justify the means, after all.
This tedious waltz between culpability and blamelessness permeated the entire affair. Mrs. Clinton said she is ultimately responsible for Libya but that none of the particular failures manifested there were her fault. She claimed that heads have rolled at the State Department, but the three individuals who were removed from their posts remain on paid administrative leave. She assured Congress that the State Department was acting on umpteen recommendations of a review board, but maintained, broadly, that the system worked.
We had an Ambassador named Christopher Stevens
He died! he died!
Obama said he was killed by protestors
He lied! he lied!
Why oh why is my Ambassador dead?
Could it have been terrorism instead?
I had a 3 others named Security
(apologies to Lisa Simpson) :0
