Report: Hillary Asked For More Security in Benghazi, Obama Said No
Fox News ^ | October 26, 2012 | Christopher collins

Posted on 10/26/2012 9:44:35 AM PDT by lbryce

Last night, it was revealed that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had ordered more security at the U.S. mission in Benghazi before it was attacked where four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens were murdered by Al-Qaeda but President Obama denied the request.

The news broke on TheBlazeTV’s “Wilkow!” hosted by Andrew Wilkow, by best-selling author, Ed Klein who said the legal counsel to Clinton had informed him of this information.

Klein also said that those same sources said that former President Bill Clinton has been “urging” his wife [Hillary] to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.

It's a race against time. Is any new information enough to penetrate the collective minds of those Americans who want to save the nation from being destroyed from within?

The Obama ship is sinking and the rats are jumping ship to save their collective a$$es.

They are turning on Zero. No longer willing to go under the bus for Zero.

It’s Zero’s turn to go under the bus.

Like you I hope it penetrates the thick skulls of Obama supporters in time.

Maybe this explains the push by the Obama team for early voting. Every stop on his campaign trail he urges all his supporters to “Vote early”...

You know, that occurred to me also. You may have something there.

IMO, she’s just covering her posterior, but this does give the charges against Obama credence, so for once her self-serving tendencies may actually help the nation by accident.

And when he’s gone, she’s gone. She’s done IMO. I don’t think she’ll every be considered viable to run for President again.

Yes, the “vote often” part is implied.

“I hope it penetrates the thick skulls of Obama supporters in time.”

Very doubtful. They’re most likely thinking “voter suppression, Jim Crow, bigotry” in not allowing black ex-cons cast their 92% share of votes for obama.

Those who still support obama are a different species altogether. Benghazi is the last thing they want to consider.

Let Hillary produce this crap before absolving her.

Her imaginary orders were too little too late as the ambassador himself is still saying on the day of his death and as testimony reveals and NO HEADS HAVE ROLLED FOR DISREGARDING HILLARY’S GRAND ORDER for more security.

She has had plenty of time to manufacture cover, or reconstruct her feeble actions.

Obama is STUCK, forced to cover for the untouchable Hillary.

Rush is updating this mess. As I learn more details about Bamma Oop’s disdain, Biden’s senile comments, and Panetta’s “Monday Morning QB” words, I’m sickened.

However, I think Hillary won’t give up without exacting revenge. You Go Girl~~~!!!!

0bama bombed Libya WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL and all he got was Ambassador Stevens’ bloody T-shirt. Perhaps he should’ve gotten Congress’ input first before he decided to overthrow Ghadafi.

You know what? I don't believe her. I'm calling BS on Hillary's claim.

If she asked for more security for her people, and was turned down by the Commander in Chief, or by one of his islamophile gophers, she should have resigned. Right there, on the spot. A serious Secretary of State would have.

And another thing that makes me call BS: Hillary feels exactly the same way - ideologically - as Obumbo does. They are two peas in a pod. She hates America as much as he does. She despises American military power as much as he does. She thinks America deserves to be brought low and humiliated to exactly the same degree as Obama does, which is to say totally.

So I say Miss Hillary is lying through her teeth. She's scared that her "political viability" (to use her husbands phrase in his letter to Colonel Holmes) will be damaged by this.

I can't go out and save every underdefended ambassador in the State Department.

Rush called this yesterday. Before this is over, Hillary is going to make sure that she has no blame-forget she already claimed responsibility-that doesn’t matter when they realize that they can’t stop the truth from coming out.

Reminds me of the scene in the first LOTR movie, with Gandalf and the Balrog. Obama throws Hillary down the bottomless pit, only to be snagged around the ankle by one of her whips.

This is the ad that closes the coffin.

If Obama is covering up Benghazi, and he covered up Fast and Furious, what else is he covering up?

I would lace the ad wth documents. Have words like solyndra show up, maybe add birth certificate, college admissions, passport. Just quick pictures.

Force the rats to defense it.

Very well said. The fact is, they seethe, despise Obama for having usurped the election from them. She tried stopping the Obama juggernaut during the 2008 campaign by releasing the tapes of Rev. Wright. In any other situation, the candidate against whom the videos of Wright braying “G-d Damn America!” were directed at would have been DOA. Being a left-wing, liberal black man helped deflect even the worst things imaginable about him. The Clintons have shown themselves capable of anything and they’re definitely out to avenge Obama’s taking of “their” White House as long as they can’t be connected to any conspiracy.

It's like the scene from "The Fellowship of the Ring" where Gandalf (Obama) sends the flaming demon (Hillary) into the abyss, but the demon cracks his whip on the way down and drags Gandalf over the edge, too.

(Apologies to LOTR fans)

Sorry, not nearly enough.

I will accept no comments from an author claiming anonymous inside sources on Clinton’s legal team.

IF this is true, Hillary needs to produce the documents showing her request, and the documents showing the refusal.

Then she needs to explain to the American people, and the families of the dead SEALs, why she didn’t resign and go public with this before those heroes fought and died alone, abandoned, and betrayed.

Then she needs to resign.

FU, Clinton.

I thought of that too, but Gandalf being pulled down was a case of noble sacrifice, not a case of just deserts. (Yes, I was searching TVTropes.org for a more appropriate comparison).

And apparently, Obama picks those to die (see unmanned drone over Benghazi).

Liberals will try to say that Obama had nothing to do with this and he doesn’t have control over things like these...

And in the same breath, they give him credit for killing Osama bin Laden. There’s even a picture of him sitting in the room watching the assault unfold. Yet when it comes to Benghazi he didn’t know what was going on and had no control.

Can’t have it both ways libs!

It was a loose analogy, I’ll admit. The actor who played Gandalf is as queer as a 3 dollar bill, so that makes it appropriate, somehow. :^)

It's OK because they lost their lives for a good cause: helping Obama win his re-election contest.

I'm sure Obama was thinking this as he watched the live-feed video recordings from the two overhead drones. "Too bad they had to die but it had to happen. Now where's the latest fundraising totals?"

If Bill is actually urging her to do it then you can bet your bottom dollar that Hillary is hard at work trying to line up help from media folks to make it look like a brave thing to do rather than back stabbing. If she can get one or two lefty personalities in her corner I think she'll rip Barry a new one that'll knock him down further than even Carter was when he slithered out of DC.

Hillary would want to have someone the libs publicly encourage her to come forward so she could say that's what convinced here to do it, but she could move without that if she was sure there would be at least some lefty media in her corner. Without that, I doubt she comes forward until after the election unless the polls get even worse Barry than they already are in which case she may go ahead no matter what.

Barry is the first person to ever cross the Clinton crowd and walk away unharmed and you know they'd love to be the deciding factor in keeping him from having a second term. They're going to be the last ones standing after a King Barry defeat anyway, though, so they'll want media in their corner to put the best face on everything. Even without it, though, you know Bill sees this as he and Hillary's chance to start taking back control of the party that's now in the hands of the coffee fetching types Barry has planted everywhere.

Let one more little thing happen on the international scene in the next week, though, and she and Bill will be together in front of cameras in a heartbeat spilling the beans on more than just Benghazi. She'll have plenty of solid information on how Benghazi is just the last straw, not the only straw.

JMHO
