Clinton: Facebook and Twitter are Not Evidence
Arutz Sheva ^ | 24/10/12 | Rachel Hirschfeld

Posted on 10/24/2012 4:50:20 PM PDT by Eleutheria5

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton downplayed the suggestion that emails implicating an Al Qaeda-linked group in the attack on the American embassy in Benghazi were proof of terrorist involvement, saying their claims of responsibility on Facebook and Twitter were not "evidence."

The recently obtained emails, which raise questions about whether the White House was trying to cover up the nature of the attack, show that the State Department told administration officials and the FBI within two hours of the attack on the consulate that the terrorist group Ansar al Sharia had claimed responsibility.

"These emails make clear that your Administration knew within two hours of the attack that it was a terrorist act and that Ansar al-Sharia, a Libyan militant group with links to Al-Qaeda, had claimed responsibility for it," Sens. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Kelly Ayotte (R-N.H.) and Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) wrote in a letter to President Obama. "This latest revelation only adds to the confusion surrounding what you and your Administration knew about the attacks in Benghazi, when you knew it, and why you responded to those tragic events in the ways that you did.

"The American people have the right to know what information your Administration was receiving about the attacks in Benghazi once they began, when you received it, how you reacted to it, and why you and other members of your Administration continued for days after the attack to speak about it in ways that increasingly seem at odds with intelligence and other reporting that you had available to you,” they wrote. “We urge you to address the American people directly on these and other vital questions that still surround the tragic murder of our fellow citizens last month in Libya."

Keep digging that hole, Hill, until you can climb into it and fit under a bus. Then you'll have filled a hole with a Hill, and you'll have plenty of company under that bus.

Good, you’ll need it.

It’s only evidence if it’s right wing comments or videos on youtube from Christian film makers.

Even if this argument was plausible, it doesn’t change the fact there was no justification for all of that declaration that it was just a spontaneous protest that got out of hand over a video. That still has no credible explanation.

A hundred guys with mortars, rockets, and heavy machine guns attacking your embassy is evidence of a terrorist attack. The seven hour fire-fight is evidence of a terrorist attack.

The Al Qaeda claim of responsibility is just icing on the cake. Parsing words isn’t going to make this go away.

does anyone know what evidence they used to conclude that this incident was caused by a you tube video?

Either way, it shows they were pretty clueless and an American ambassador has been killed in the line of duty, the first time us diplomat killed in the line of duty since 1979. The last one was Adolph Dubs who was kidnapped and shot by terrorists in Afghanistan who were almost certainly taking orders from the Soviet Union

Was the live drone video of the attack on Facebook and Twitter Hillary? Is that why you did not believe your lying eyes?

No but if you look on the Library table you will find the evidence right under the Rose Law Firm’s billing records.

This is all such postering by congress. Where's the date certain demanding it be addressed now and certainly before November 5th? And if the hildebeast is still playing semantics she should be asked to resign NOW.

‘her hubby’s bodily fluids on Lewinsky’s dress, either’

The problem for hill was that she could not identify the fluid on the blue dress.

It’s not evidence until Hillary Clinton’s new legal team leaks it via back channels, just like the recent emails.

She’s a money-grubbing Democrat grifter. There’s money involved in this. I don’t know if it’s Saudi money or Russian money or Chinese money or Soros money, but there’s money involved. I would keep a close eye on her. She may run to an embassy for asylum.

It was nice of Billy boy to get a team of lawyers for Hitlery. She is going to really need them.

Obozo, the laughing hyena, Panetta, Rice and Hillary sure got a lot of “splaining” to do. Where was Petraeus as this unfolded...

Hill wasn’t any better at answering that 3 A.M. phone call than Obozo was....

At some point, we the people are going to revolt against the abomination that our judicial system has become.

We have ceased to recognize obvious truth and evidence and we have allowed the system to be taken over by corrupt and self-serving lawyers who twist and parse every sentence to make it mean something that it does not, and then who obtain legal decisions based not on what is just but on what they can get away with via technicalities and loopholes.

Lawyers like the Clintons think they can manipulate their way out of every situation by clever word choices. What is worse is that we let them.

Gee! If ‘social networking’ sites are “not evidence”, then why has the Federal Government announced, during the Obama Administration, through the DHS, that ‘social networking’ sites, were going to be monitored, at all??????

Well, if she turns this back on Obama I will order a new bumper sticker, “The only good Commie is an Impeached Commie”.

Hopefully Obama will lose to Romney, but the 2013 Republican House (pray) and the new Republican Senate (pray more) will be in session three weeks before Inauguration Day.

A January Impeachment would be like a second Christmas Morning, and Romney taking the Oath of Office would be the third.

Oh to dream the dreams of Kings and Vagabonds...

The Obama admin sat around and watched that while pretending it wasn't happening, too.
