Clinton bristled at Benghazi deception
NY Post ^ | 6-22-2014 | Edward Klein

Posted on 06/22/2014 4:18:48 PM PDT by Citizen Zed

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya.

She knew that Ambassador Christopher Stevens and a communications operator were dead, and that the attackers had launched a well-coordinated mortar assault on the CIA annex, which would cost the lives of two more Americans.

She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run.

Sounds like madam Cliton chose badly. But if the only place this sees light of day is here, Rush, Beck and other conservative sites, then the knowledge is doomed to rot on the vine.

If these idiots in Washington wouldn’t look at the next election but did what was right, their political futures would take care of themselves.

While this makes Obama look bad, it does even more damage to Hillary. She is proven to be a spineless liar ready to deceive the entire country (and even the world) for political gain.

“If you strike at a king, you must kill him.”

The Clintons are playing with fire for the past few days. They must be of the opinion that they can administer the coup de grace which will kill Obama.

Waiting patiently for the response from the Obama team. Crickets so far.

Pass the popcorn.

Interesting. Who is the media gonna support on this one? I mean they’re all in for the president, but they also want to get Hillary elected in 2016. They don’t want to make each of them look bad. Klein’s book will get ignored by the media and they’ll claim it’s a hatchet job trying to make both parties look bad.

As someone else posted, these two Marxists Millionaires met recently to hatch in thecWH just before this New PR BS is being leaked.

This scheme with these phony leaks are pathetic and smell likecthey were cooked up by Georgie Steppy at ABC and that Lousiana Snake-face PR liar.

What a load of crap. If she thought it wasn’t credible, she had a choice—she could have stayed silent and not put out a press release. Obama could have fired her, but I doubt he would have gone that far.

I seem to remember some Nazi generals at trial using the same excuse. I was only following orders.

This obvious attempt on the part of Hill and Bill to convince the public that there was a feud going on with 0 and mrs. 0, is getting hilarious.

Next a photo will leaked to their media of Hill and Bill and the 0’s fist fighting in the Oval Office. /s

Obama doesn’t intend to go away in 2.5 years.

He’ll no longer be president but with his organization (which he’s refused to share with the Democrat party to help with the 2014 elections), he will maintain the reins of the Rat party if not discredited. If a Rat he doesn’t anoint or a Republican wins in 2016, he’ll use his organization to run a shadow government.

The Clintons want to get rid of him once and for all as “king” of the Rat party. That’s the context in which I made the statement.

I agree. Unfortunately, most Americans are sufficiently dumbed down that they won’t see it that way.

It will be next to impossible, IMO, for an ex-president to maintain control of the Party. He almost immediately becomes irrelevant.

I remember claims that B. Clinton would remain a power broker in the party after leaving office. As far as I can tell, didn’t happen.

YMMV

Do we have here an instance of two prevaricators striving to out-prevaricate each other? To those of us that have seen a photo of the Ambassador’s mutilated body, this palaver is asinine.

the clintonistas and the obamites have hated each other since team obama played the race card on billy in the 2008 SC primary.

it’s going to get good if Hillary runs. I can’t wait to see what she says about ACA.

Hillary always stands by her man. She may have had enough functioning brain cells to know that Barry was lying, and maybe she had a little twinge of remorse when she publicly supported him, but that’s been her MO all along. Attach herself to some powerful man and take any garbage from him that he wants to fling at her...and then be ready to fall on her sword to shield him.

This loser is a feminist role-model?

If she runs, she will probably die or wind up in a nursing home before the campaign gets very far.

Her health is just too shot.

There is no doubt in anyone’s mind that this is exactly what happened.

IF we all recall, soon after this happened... Hillary went into seclusion and lawyered up. I’m sure that she agonized what to do...

But truth be known, that had she spoke up, resigned...and been a true patriot... everyone would have supported her courage....

True, it may have cost Obama re election...but who’s to say that Hillary could still be in the game...

But now she comes across as a petty two faced partisan.

How is she going to talk this down...? When this come out tomorrow? She’s on a book tour... Is she going to refute this?

There is no one on the planet that is going to say this started as a protest... even if they get this latest terrorist to say that it was the result of a video.

How does Hillary explain the Tweets from the Cairo embassy apologizing for the video 12+ hours before Benghazi was attacked?
