Libya Cover-Up: Hillary Clinton Throws Obama Under His Own Benghazi Bus
Theothermcain ^ | 10/14/12 | Robert Stacy

Posted on 10/15/2012 7:09:34 PM PDT by mgist

A confusing array of contradictions concerning the murders of four Americans, one of which was a U.S. ambassador, was made worse by Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks during the debate with Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan Thursday evening. Today the confusion only worsened yet again when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that her agency was not the source of misinformation concerning the attacks, charging instead that the White House was the source of the false mantra that the murders were spurred by an anti-Muslim film made in the  United States. Clinton told reporters that when Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her rounds on every Sunday morning news show to claim the film motivated the attacks, the information had been fed to her by the White House and not the intelligence community in the State Department or the CIA. Not only does Clinton’s statement contradict early White House accounts but directly contradicts statements made by Vice President Biden during the debate.

If Obama thinks he’s gonna throw Hillary Clinton under his bus, he’s going to find out the hard way his bus ain’t big enough. He’s not looking too good in the polls lately — even PPP has him trailing Romney in Florida now – and rather than playing the Good Soldier in his doomed re-election campaign, why shouldn’t Hillary kick off her 2016 campaign by helping expose Obama’s bungling? And here’s a good laugh for you:

The article (from yesterday) seems to say that she is NOT taking blame for the “film lie” — that goes to the WH, but today is taking blame for the security. So, I guess they’ve worked out how to share the blame or just try and muddy things up further.

” - - - Clinton told reporters that when Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, made her rounds on every Sunday morning news show to claim the film motivated the attacks, the information had been fed to her by the White House and not the intelligence community in the State Department or the CIA.”

If Hilly wants to be believed, she had better say this under oath to a US House Committee.

Hillbilly tweeted about it on Sept. 11th using the Cairo embassy Twitter account. (You might recall Romney condemning it and the press going crazy on him.) AFAIK the Cairo embassy tweets were the first instance of an apology for the "video."

Senior administration official: The Cairo embassy’s statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement “disgraceful”

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO…

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.

Muddying the waters... they are good at that. If she is accepting ‘responsibility’ then she ought to resign

“Hillery threw herself under the bus today.....”

Yes she did. BUT not without motive. For any of us to try to make sense out of anything these characters do is ridiculous. I was just thinking about Romney and the 47%. He was so right. It’s grown to 47% under Obama from the firm 43% Bill Clinton commanded. A day after Bill Clinton is all but removed from office, he had his base of 43% Liberal lip-biters cheering him on. No matter what he did. It’s much the same now with Obama. Hillary has played a role in saving the presidency of both of these creatures. We can’t stand by and watch her bring a second term to Obama as she did with Bill. She’s on the verge of doing that. Congress has to push for her resignation. The 53% has to push for her resignation.

BO, Axlegrease, and Jarrett have huge, major dirt on the Clintons. Why else would they both spend 24/7 kissing BO’s a%$?

They’re going to muddy the waters so much that the legacy media will just throw up their hands and walk away.

Watergate was complicated too, but back then Walter Cronkite had the time to show all kinds of charts, with pictures of the faces of the players and arrows connecting one to the other while Chris Plante (or whoever it was) explained everything step by step.

Today, I’m guessing we’ll be too short on time to go into that much detail.

Ehhhhh.....tomorrow she’ll announce that she’s responsible for tying her own shoes. The press will have to think that over for a week. Everybody already knows that Hillary is responsible for the security at the embassies. She didn’t take responsibility for those four dead Americans. That’s what she needs to do. As well as taking responsibility for those missing Libyan missiles. All she did today was read her job description out loud.

I look for obama to order massive bomb strikes against Libya any day now, to be followed by ground troops. A diversion he needs to get some of what he thinks will make the voters want to vote for him.

.... Considering all of this this actually may forced into coverage by the MSM and actually making it into the real news cycle .... my guess is that the mighty "O" will activate whatever "October Surprises" he has left to knock this stuff off or even to prevent it from making the headlines and thus give them something much more interesting and palatable for his adoring MSM than political intrigue involving the Whitehouse.

He needs something to draw the attention away from his horrid administration and divert it towards the Republicans and their nominee. The sooner .... the better for him and his faltering campaign.

Dont think so. His leftist base would go nuts. He’s got nothing if they go away.

Please help me out here. How can she say this in light of HER OWN numerous appearances all over the place, flapping her gums about that vile video that nobody viewed?

Including the TV time the Administration bought in the Middle East, with HER voice apologizing for the video and trashing the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution?

“He needs something to draw the attention away from his horrid administration...”

I agree. This is the perfect time for a “Wag the Dog” incident, and the Bamster wouldn’t think twice about it if his handlers just handed him the scenario. The complicit lamestream media would embrace it with joy and carry it through Election Day. He could spend the next 4 years signing executive orders and stonewalling a congressional investigation with the help of the media.

This article was prescient when it was published, but it’s all become yet more confusing with Hillary accepting full responsibility for the security portion of this fiasco tonight. Who has a fresh take on all this in light of Hillary having thrown herself on the sword?

Obama would not accept responsibility for the actions of his administration. Hillary stepped up to the plate and took responsibility. Hillary left Obama looking like a very small girlie-man. Hillary cut him off at the knees. Women are not going to vote for wimpy Obama now. Hillary just cost him the election.

Re Rice, I thought Hillary said something like “Rice was speaking through the fog of war”. I’d say it was exceptionally foggy, since Rice blathered almost a week after everyone knew the truth.

...fog of war...? According to Obama, there is no War on Terror. What war is she talking about?
