Kudlow: Obama to Pin Libya on Hillary Clinton?
CNBC ^ | 12 October 2012 | Lee Brodie

Posted on 10/13/2012 3:29:47 PM PDT by AFPhys


According to proprietary reporting from Ed Klein, Bill Clinton is concerned that Barack Obama is about to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus.

On The Kudlow Report, Klein said that President Clinton is reaching out to friends in the legal profession trying to figure out what his wife should do if she’s subpoenaed - called in to testify about events in Libya.

Joe Klein went on to say if you listen to the language used by Joe Biden in the debate closely – Bill Clinton's move may be more than simply precautionary.

“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 Kudlow’s 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 Clinton’s 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:
http://wabcradio.com/sectional.asp?id=33448

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.

trying to figure out what his wife should do if she’s subpoenaed - called in to testify about events in Libya.

She should tell them she was at home, with her daughter, baking cookies! Yeah Yeah, that's the ticket!

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:

http://d24edc7kaf4agn.cloudfront.net/3650/rhiDownloadVariant/10-12-col-hunt.mp3?rhihttphost=audio.wrko.com

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.

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.

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!!!

Clinton IS FAR more important than anyone else in the Demodog party. Exhibit #1: the DNC convention. Obama is trash compared to him (and her to some lesser degree) and will be tossed by Hollywood and reporters when he is out of office, unlike the Clintons, though he will hold sat least some sway with blacks.

The Clinton’s despise Bam and VV. Read Edward Klein’s “The Amateur” or Halperin’s “Game Change”.

But because they are liberal Demorats, they put aside personal feelings for the pursuit of and exchange of power, driven by uncontrolled greed. It’ll be interesting to see what if anything happens publicly with their tenuous relationship.

Look at how classy and private Bush is, how he refuses to diss Hussein or draw attention to himself.
Compare with Her Thighness and Der Sleek who just can’t stay out of the spotlight.
They are in this for their own legacies and don’t care about anyone but themselves.
Disgusting people.

The White House and the Clintons are desperate to get out of this mess. The Clintons have been there.. TWA800.. they quickly defused that -- "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."

It could work again and Obama will go along -- it will save 'em both and the MSM will do their share just like the last time..

"Today the White House and the intelligence agencies issued a joint and the definitive report.. the CIA has posted a video on youtube.com depicting what happened at the consulate in Benghazi.. 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 -- yes some rescuers were carrying weapons they had rushed in from a nearby war zone to help rescue the Americans, the White House revealed . . . . "

Never in a million years. Snickers would protest due to having an ego the size of Texas...Even if he was forced, he’s so stupid and arrogant that he would squeal and ruin the plan.

But the Chicago thugs might off him and get the sympathy vote that way.
A grenade sails through the window of an Obama campaign office just as Plugs stops in to greet phoners with a plate of fresh cookies that he made for them?

Bill shouldn't worry. A Clinton can always come up with convenient amnesia, like Whitewater, Chinese campaign funding, boinking interns, and Foster's death. Hillary is pro at it. Both Clintons have genetic predisposition to avoiding telling the truth.

I’ve listened to the Kudlow-Klein podcast - thanks for the suggestion. Well worth the time - these guys know more “inside baseball” than most and it really makes sense.

Actually, this is tailor-made for the Clintons in many ways. We know that Bill at least despises Obama, and they both resent how Obama took their “rightful place” at the top of the democrat party in 2008. So here is the perfect opportunity to eviscerate Obama and save Hillary’s reputation in one fell swoop.

Sure, it would mean Republicans win the Presidency but Clinton knows that’s going to happen anyway. No downside, it’s all good for them.

One of Ed Klein’s and Kudlow’s points they made in the podcast is how -bama is given the NSA’s briefing every day, and in that is such information as the personnel concerns of the State Department. They detail the process whereby it gets there.

I like your take.

If there is one thing that Obama has a lifetime of experience doing, it's deflecting the blame when his stuff hits the fan. It's amazing that this is the dominant trait of an American President.

From the podcast, I believe that Ed Klein believes that Obama has an intractable, if not insoluble, problem: does he throw his VP Uncle Joe under the bus, or does he throw Hitlery under the bus, or does he try to obfuscate dodge duck and bamboozle the press. Each of those choices has huge risks and little reward potential.

Thanks for the testimony of the worthwhile nature of the podcast. Others I pointed it out to have found it useful, too. Kudlow and Klein know MUCH more about the nature of this scandal than most reporters about it, as does Levin.
