Author Ed Klein: As Benghazi blame nears Hillary, Clintons grow furious
The Daily Caller ^ | 10/12/12 | Alex Pappas

Posted on 10/12/2012 2:10:52 PM PDT by justlittleoleme

In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month.

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters during a press conference Friday that responsibility for the consulate in Libya fell on the State Department, not the White House.

If blame for the security failures falls to Hillary Clinton, Klein said, it’s possible that she would even consider resigning over the issue.

“Bill is working on a number of strategies about what Hillary ought to do. He’s even gone so far as to play with various doomsday scenarios including up to the idea that Hillary would consider resigning over the issue if the Obama team tries to use her as a scapegoat,” Klein told TheDC in an interview.

Pakistanis didn't know about any "video" or any "insults" until 0blablah and Hillbilly broadcast this...

Obama and Hillary Apologize for Free Speech on Pakistani TV (taxpayer-funded ads) Sept. 20, 2012

Which immediately resulted in this...

Pakistan: 17 killed in anti-Islam film protests Sept. 21, 2012

0bama then went to the UN and re-inflamed the Muslim world once again over the manufactured offense "Innocence of Muslims."

Those apologies validated their rage.

Technically, she is responsible for all embassies and staffing. That being said, if she was directed to not supply adequate staff in Benghazi then she should speak out about it.

In this CNN report, White House [re-]clarifies Biden on Libya security, an anonymous administration source comes out with the statement that of course "the president is responsible for the security of all U.S. personnel around the world." A major back-off from where all the earlier excuses were headed. You Betcha Team Clinton has let Obama know that Hillary is not going under the bus.

Hillary will leave with a torch earth policy. Hillary and Bill are not going to let Obama and Joey the clown hang her out to dry in the Media. Won’t happen.

Also watch major State Department leaks start coming out. I think most of us can see this coming.

I could see her getting out and claiming that O threw her

she filmed that apology to the muslims, but who will really

You know what would really mean something? Hillary resigns and does enough damage to Obama to assure his loss. She could do that out of principal, setting herself up for a 2016 run. Her supporters would abandon Obama in droves.

The Obama has got himself in a difficult position here.

Obama UN Ambassador Tries To Claim Protests Had Nothing To Do With Obama Policies
(video 2:16. Both Rice and Carney flatly say that the video was the cause of the Benghazi attack.)

(Ambassador) RICE: -- "was a result, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the US government had nothing to do with,..."

U.S. denies premeditation report

"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

From long ago: TWA800.

"Likely under White House pressure, and without any new evidence, the FBI immediately shifted its storyline away from a missile to a bomb, and a month later, from a bomb to a center fuel tank explosion."

Today..

White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters during a press conference Friday that responsibility for the consulate in Libya fell on the State Department, not the White House.

“Bill [Clinton] is working on a number of strategies about what Hillary ought to do. He’s even gone so far as to play with various doomsday scenarios including up to the idea that Hillary would consider resigning over the issue if the Obama team tries to use her as a scapegoat,” Klein told TheDC in an interview.

High government officials say the Clintons and the White House are anxious to settle this and will try the "center fuel tank" option; to wit, an explosion in the Benghazi consulate central heating fuel tank destroyed the buildings.. the people swarming over the ruins were there searching for survivors to take to the hospital.

Pass the popcorn!


The Clintons do not take the fall... Others have always taken the fall for them... This is getting interesting.

Yet, at the same time, a bit funny too. Hopefully this will be a disastrous end to both Clinton and Oblamer. The icing on the cake would be Federal Prison for Holder for Fast & Furious.

I would like to know why Hillbilly so pointedly and repeatedly felt that she needed to state that the U.S. gov had no connection to the "video." Seems odd to me that it needed to be stated at all. (see video from 0:10 - 0:30)
