Skip to comments.Author Ed Klein: As Benghazi blame nears Hillary, Clintons grow furious
Posted on 10/13/2012 1:26:48 AM PDT by TigerClaws
With tensions between President Obama and the Clintons at a new high, former President Bill Clinton is moving fast to develop a contingency plan for how his wife, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, should react if Obama attempts to tie the Benghazi fiasco around her neck, according to author Ed Klein.
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.

Furious or frightened?
None of this makes feel good about the competence of a second term Obama Administration as regards MidEast policy and national security.
I am placing my bets on for a Clinton win.
All Wee Willy has to say to Obama is âDon’t F with my wife and accept responsibility or I’ll say I made a huge mistake in judgment and take back my endorsement.â Many blue dogs are begging for a reason to vote Romney!
Clintons raised the birthed issue the first time and the porno pictures of Stanley Ann. Assuming they have more dirt to dish on Obama and might hand it off to a third party.
Romney should keep digging at that wound, demanding clarification that it was Hillary`s Dept. of State that was to blame for the deaths of Amb. Stevens and the other three.
All Wee Willy Clinton has to say to Obama: “ Hawaii just called and they said, wow, it so happens we accidentally found that long lost “ Kenya “ birth certificate “
Ha. Does seem to help Romney.
Who made the political decision (let’s call it what it was) to lie about the protests over YouTube?
Hillary spent $70.000 apologizing with the tv ads.
Then came out and said they knew all along it was an organized terrorist attack. They had a live video feed!
Someone in the White House decided that didn’t follow the script. So they lied. They now want Hillary to take the fall.
Regardless of how this plays out between Obama and Clinton they both lose badly as does the party overall.
I have been following politics for the past 35 years and have never seen a bunch of more self involved group than the Democrats of today. They appear totally blind to how this plays across America.
I wish what little conservative media there is, would go at this twenty-four/seven. Just constantly blare that “it must be Hilary’s fault”. Act just like the dems.. offer no more proof than because I said so. The democratic response would keep it at the top of even the MSM bullcrap. Since the sheeple never read past a headline or a bumper sticker.. force
IT’S HILARY’S FAULT to be at the top of the news.
HA!!! That’s what Bill gets for supporting hope and change.
The negligence of Bill’s own Dept of Justice in building “the wall” which isolated various Federal intelligence agencies from one another, led to 9/11/01.
His foolish old lady’s professional idiocy in the service the faux President led to 09/11/12.
Hey Hillary! Everyone else has taken their turn under the bus wheels, why can’t you be a team player like them!
Oh man... this could be VERY entertaining!
Of course Hillary is just as guilty of incompetence,
malfeasance and dereliction of duty as Obama and his entire administration of quacks, queers, commies, Affirmative Action appointees and other human oddities.
The administration has concentrated more on persecuting American citizens than thinking about the possibility of muslim attacks against us on 9/11.
Hillary is just the last in a long, unbroken line of worthless Affirmative Action Secretaries of State. She doesn't belong under the bus - she belongs in prison along with Obama, Biden, Holder and the rest of the Obama menagerie.
It will be interesting to see which side the press takes on this - Obama or Hillary?
Hopefully they will stick with Obama, letting Hillary take the rap and killing her chances for a run at the presidency in 2016.
Better yet say a WH source has admitted that “IT’s HILLARY’s FAULT!”
Brilliant. Use the old unnamed source inside the administration. If they read it here they can make it two sources!
Good! I hope they are furious enough to release ALL the information they have on the pos in chief.
Schadenfreunde. The Clintons are as dangerous if not more so than Obama. Obama’s only a second-hand puppet who applies what he read about alinsky, while Hillary is a first-hand disciple.
The Clintons have the goods on Obama AND the Birth Certificate....maybe even college records! RELEASE THE HOUNDS!!!
That’s Hope & Change I can believe in.
There is the crux of it. You have two individual/groups who are used to having people fall on their swords for them. Now they are in a situation where one of the two parties HAS to take the blame. Neither side wants it to be them. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.
It doesn't serve either the obamas or clintons for this to come to a head before the elections. If Romney pushes hard enough and in the right direction, he could get this all to boil over before that time, though.
After 911 I think laughing Joes excuse that they didn’t know the embassy requested more security is worse. Did they not know because they weren’t told or cause Obama was of playing either way not good for team Obama
The leftist lizards are working themselves up into a cannabalistic feeding frenzy. This is GREAT to watch.
Incompetant sophomoric idjits, in way over their head in Benghazi. Obama wants instability in Libya....a very “nuanced” fact. Hillery gave it to him.
Hot Damn!!!! What perfect timing.
Bill Clinton is in my state, Ohio, campaigning with Bruce Springsteen. I would love to break that alliance and have all the crap the Clinton’s have on Obama/Biden headlining every grocery store tabloid. Let’s face it, that is where the 47 percent get their “news”.
You are dog gone right. As much as I despise Slick Willy, he may be the best politican of the past 100 years.
bill to obama:
I brought you into this office and I can take you out.
The problem is how does he do it and keep his own hands clean. It ain’t that he gives a damn about hillary. THIS comes too close to HIM.
I bet she’s wishing she stayed home & baked cookies!
That Biden’s claim and later White House statements that they had no idea there were security concerns at our embassy in Libya is a ploy to put all of the blame for this fiasco on Hillary and take the heat off Obama. Obama is notorious for throwing even long time supporters under the bus whenever they might pose any liability to his reelection. There is bad blood between Obama and the Clintons ever since Obama nixed Hillary’s seemed shoe in for the nomination in 2008 and Bill was furious that Obama would use the “race card” against her. I am sure the Clintons have some dirt on Obama that they will let leak right before the election to sink Obama and pave the way for Hillary to be the white knight riding in to save the Democratic Party after a crushing defeat in November.
Hillary was too busy with global "gay rights" issues to be concerned with acts of terrorism.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton marked Human Rights Day yesterday (12/6/2011) with a historic speech on international gay rights.
Said Clinton to a U.N. audience in Switzerland: "Being LGBT does not make you less human, and that is why gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights."
Clinton added: "I speak about this subject knowing that my own countrys record on human rights for gay people is far from perfect."
Clinton also announced that the U.S. will use both diplomacy and $3 million in foreign aid to help the global fight for gay rights, not a huge some to be sure, but imagine the Sec. of State announcing any foreign aid being spent on gay rights abroad.

This was months before the attack on the U.S. embassy (considered American soil) in Libya, but it is only one example of the type of issue for which our Secretary of State was globetrotting.
I don’t know. The Chicago Gang pwned the Arkansas Mafia in 2008...
His answer would be the State Department of course. Cue sounds of wheels grinding Hillary to a grease spot.
Hillary has always said that we have to sacrifice for the good of all. Now this is her chance!
Hillary was firing a shot over the bow of the SS Barry Hussein. She realized the music had stopped and she was the one without a chair.
I hope she’s kept a real good paper trail of the whole situation.
We Came WE Saw He Died
I bet cackling Hillary wishes she had never made that statement
No one seems to be considering the possibility that it is Obama who has the goods on Hillary AND Bill.
The executive branch is clearly attempting to isolate the State Department. In the world we think we live in, this would be extremely dangerous for Obama.
Unless he is the one who holds the trump cards.
Both Clintons have been doing Obama’s bidding for some time now, with severe potential consequences to their reputations.
Bill’s endorsement of Obama at the Dem convention was strange. Most of us have attempted to explain it by saying there was something Obama would eventually do for Bill and/or Hillary. Isn’t it possible Bill’s endorsement was coerced?
So far, it seems as if the Clintons are taking their medicine. It would be devastating to Obama’s reelection chances if Bill withdrew his endorsement. Obama is acting as if he knows beyond a shadow of doubt he won’t.
