Skip to comments.Kudlow: Obama to Pin Libya on Hillary Clinton?
Posted on 10/13/2012 3:29:47 PM PDT by AFPhys
Biden said something like we were unaware nobody told us. What does that say? The only person who did know is Hillary Clinton, explained Klein.
This is exactly what Bill Clinton was afraid of, he added. The administration is going to pin the whole thing on Hillary. In recent days the administration has come under scrutiny for the way in which it released information about the Libya attacks to the American public.
On September 11, 2012 Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and the other Americans were killed after Islamist gunmen attacked the U.S. consulate and a safe house refuge in Benghazi.
At the time the White House called the attack a spontaneous event; in response to a film that portrayed Muslim in an unflattering light.
Republicans charge the White House deliberately misled the people, knowing it was an act of terror. They say the decision was political, that Obama didn't want to disclose that al-Qadea had made a comeback in Libya.
In response to these charges, the White House has denied any intentional cover-up and counters that it has been completely transparent providing its best intelligence on the attack, and then refining it as more information came to light.
The FBI is still investigating the attack. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also has named a State Department review panel to look into the security arrangements in Libya.
I believe it is very important for all FReepers to listen to the first 18 minutes of the podcast of Larry Kudlows show today. He interviews Ed Klein about BenghaziGate.
Essentially - Ed Klein told Kudlow that it seems that Obama is going to either have to deny what VP Biden said in the debate, or that he is going to have to try to hang it on State Dept and Hillary. Meanwhile, the Clintons are preparing legally for such an eventuality, and will eviscerate Obama if he tries to do that. They also went through how information goes up from agencies such as embassies, up through the chain of command, to the daily NSA briefings that the president gets (whether he reads or hears them or not). Quite a nice, detailed, yet concise account of the process.
Here is a link to the Kudlow Podcast page:
Please listen to the first 18 minutes.!!!
I hope that this subject comes up on the Sunday shows ... if it does, this Kudlow podcast will be good preparation.
Good. If Hilary can’t squirm out of this, she will drag the whole thing down out of spite.
"Ha! Ha! I hope so! Then she will know how I felt being forced to say 'I made the decision. The buck stops here.' Oh.. and I wonder if Obama will need a Vince Foster also."
Slick doesn’t seem to concerned since he is stumping for zero right now.
force the issue. subpoena her. obama can’t fight us and the clintons at the same time.
Or, BO and his crew can try to ignore the whole thing, but that won’t work since a debate is coming up which focuses on foreign policy.
Doesn’t look good for BO.
Direct link to interview:
Col. David Hunt explains how at least 12 command centers got near INSTANTANEOUS info when the Benghazi consulate was attacked, including a manned WH situation room. Hundreds of government personnel listened/watched for 6 hours in real time as the attack ensued. Hunt says it is standard operating procedure when an embassy is attacked.
WH gave no military order to intervene.
They knew almost immediately that there was NO protest, NO mob- just a surgical jihad operation viewed instantaneously in real time by governmental operations centers all over the world, including CIA, Dept of State and WH situation room, for over 6 hours.
In short, everyone knew, almost immediately, what happened in Benghazi was an act of war.
Clinton does not have the power he once had.
That’s because Bill Clinton has no choice..Obama has the goods on him..but Clinton also has the goods on Obama..so its a mutual blackmail thing going on here..one has dirt on the other
I hope the “pinning” gets underway in earnest before the election. Because if Obama tries to throw Hillary! under the bus, she’ll lob a grenade through the window on her way down to the street.
What will that grenade contain? A birth certificate? Photos from Man’s Country? The video the L.A. Slimes has under lock and key?
That aside, four Americans were killed because of this inept, self-centered and anti-American administration. The truth must out and the guilty must be held to account.
of course hillary is to blame for embassy security. she is SOS. the other question is who devised the lies afterward.
Hillary dems will not like this!
It’s not too late for Biden to suffer dementia related health problems. Instant fall guy, explanation for debate performance, sympathy vote.
That is a good interview, too.
Please, everyone, listen to the podcast - first 18 minutes. You don’t know the depth of what Ed Klein says about this unless you do! Truly a stunning interview.
I see many people here responded before they could have possibly have had a chance to listen! The article is not as important as the podcast!!!
