Hillary Clinton: How could this happen in a country we helped liberate?
Washington Examiner ^ | September 12, 2012 | Charlie Spring

Posted on 09/12/2012 11:32:03 AM PDT by Zakeet

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted this morning that the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya was "not easy" for Americans.

"Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, 'How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate? In a city we helped save from destruction?'" Clinton asked.

Clinton explained that this question "reflects how confounding the world can be" and reminded Americans to be "clear-eyed in their grief."

But these were our Muzzies ... and they were supposed to be eternally grateful ... and we are so tolerant ... and we would never, ever offend them ... and the Wee Wee is one of them ... and Huma told me this would never happen ... and I never make mistakes because I'm the world's smartest woman ... so, what went wrong?

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focaulut's Pendulum and for these graphic art realities!

She's either trying to fool us, or is completely clueless about the enemy.

Those people haven't been liberated, and they can't ever be liberated, as long as the Muslim religion is their law and their ideology and form of government.

Hey Hillary, meet the new rulers, same as the old rulers, except, even more dangerous.

Replacing one demon with another is never the same as "liberating them', and no amount of denial is going to change that.

How disingenuous. People were warning her from day one of the Egyptian and Libyan uprisings that this is exactly the type of thing which would happen if we put the jihadists in power. How could she think something like this wouldn’t happen?

Hillary Clinton and John FTA Kerry support war crimes. The torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi was a war crime.

Sec. of State/Hate Hillary Clinton chortled "WE got him!" when he was killed in the streets after being paraded about on the front of a truck.

John Lied2Congress Kerry cheered the death of Momar at the 2012 DNC Convention saying no American lives were lost. Tally some deaths under Barack's war column, please.

How did I ever get it in my head they were overthrowing govenments to help establish a caliphate? Of course they were liberating moderates for democracy, tolerance, inclusiveness, innovation, peace and security and boxes of puppies. Keep up the great work Hillary.

This was not a Country we helped liberate, this was a country we turned over to the barbarians. We knew the Muslim Brotherhood was going to be in charge. Unfortunately this administration is not yet up to speed on just who CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood are.
The Democrat Party has let the Nation down by supporting Obama without having a clue as to who and what he was.

At least we hope they did not know.

Clinton explained that this question "reflects how confounding the world can be" and reminded Americans to be "clear-eyed in their grief."

From the beginning most of us on the right were pretty clear eyed about how this Arab spring democracy thing was going to work out.

“How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate?”

America in the age of Obama. An American Ambassador and American embassy personal are murdered.

The Obama Administration apologizes.

The Secretary of State publicly says she has no clue whatsoever how it could have happened.
