Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton reveals what REALLY led to Benghazi massacre - and demolishes White House claim
Posted on 10/14/2012 11:06:17 AM PDT by COUNTrecount
The State Department has said that it never believed the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was the result of a protest over an anti-Islam movie - directly contracting the rest of the Obama administration.
By trying to distance her department from the inept and deceptive handling of the Benghazi attack, which left U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American officials dead, Hillary Clinton could help herself politically for a 2016 presidential run.
A dramatic new account by the State Department reveals that Stevens was locked inside a 'safe room' choking to death from diesel-heavy smoke as the building around him burned to the ground.
Alongside him was a security guard, tasked with the impossible choice between staying in the deadly room - or facing the rocket-propelled grenades and machine-guns outside.
Eventually the guard slipped through the window (cut)
No-one saw the ambassador alive again - another agent tried desperately to enter the safe-room, but could not find him anywhere.
The State Department's insistence it never bought the story - expressed by the White House and Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations - that a crude anti-Islam film made in California triggered the attack gives ammunition against Obama both to the Romney campaign and congressional Republicans.
State Department sources have said that Clinton has never forgotten that Rice, who served in her husband Bill's administration, was an early supporter of Obama. Rice has ambitions to take over from Clinton if Obama is re-elected but the Benghazi debacle could scupper her chances.
In a briefing on Tuesday, State Department officials said 'others' in the executive branch concluded initially that the attack was part of a protest against the film, which ridiculed the Prophet Muhammad. That was never the State Department's conclusion, reporters were told.

The “guard” SLIPPED OUT???? I don’t believe it. I don’t believe any of that story.
She may be able to distance herself from the White House’s video excuse but she cannot distance herself from ignoring the repeated requests for increased security at the Consulate before the attack. It’s her State Department that decided to spend money on Chevy Volts in Vienna instead of reliable security in Libya.
Sounds like if he was raped as some have said it was done after the man had died from the smoke.
Sorry hill...not buying this load of crap story.
I’ve read this before, that the guard made it through the window and escaped in the confusion. Maybe ... or maybe the attackers said, “Oh, hi, it’s you, run along,” and he did.
More to the point, what happened to Stevens (or his body) after he disappeared??? Not ONE WORD from our govt. on that, except for that stupid story about him being rescued and taken to the hospital. ME media reported that he was raped (or his dead body raped) and paraded through the streets. Who you gonna believe???
An absolute disgrace and utter infamy that we have to read about this first in the British press. I curse the MSM. They are despicable and evil and I can only hope that they will reap what they have sown.
Hillary cannot distance herself from the video claim. She made a video shown in Pakistan blaming the movie. She also used it at that horrible event when the bodies were returned to the US.
Mrs Clinton went along with the scam and it is too late for her to pretend she was not a part of the whole scheme.
The blame lays with everyone in the Obama chain of command, including Barack Hussein Obama.
Mrs. Clinton, you are a disgrace, and you are a despicable liar. You have the blood of Americans on your hands, and you cannot wash yourself claim no matter what lie you spin.
Resign and go to prison where you belong.
You disgust me.
The same goes for your rat boss.
Hillarat senses rising water in the hold! Time to leave the ship!
Holder didn’t resign, Hillary won’t resign, Obama “Obama didn’t know anything.”
Can we just elect some people who know what the hell is going on and who won’t deny it?
I’m not sure exactly what you believe and what information you may have to lead you to that conclusion, but you might find this account to be informative.
It’s very much at odds with the White House version of events.
Whats a window doing in a safe room ???
Talk about missing the obvious.
There are hundreds of anti-Islam sceeds out there far more offensive to Islam and for far longer than this film.
That in and of itself proves this is a lie.
Meanwhile Mr. Bill is continuing to campaign for Zero....!
doing that film scenario speech with the caskets there...Disgusting lying POS!
