State Dept: Clinton may not testify on Benghazi next week
Foreign Policy ^ | 12/13/12 | Josh Rogin

Posted on 12/13/2012 6:33:05 PM PST by Nachum

The House and Senate foreign relations committees have already announced that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on Benghazi next week, but the State Department said today that´s not a done deal. Moreover, the State Department may not even share the report of its own internal review on Benghazi with Congress, a top State Department official said today. Congress expects Clinton to testify Dec. 20 about the results of the Accountability Review Board, State´s internal review on the events leading up to and during the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi

I suspect she will fall victim to a "female complaint" and be unavailable for further comment.

I imagine she’ll eventually talk about it on “The View” or Letterman when the time comes after Willie does a saxophone solo.

I’d interpret it as “Stick it Mr. Obama”...and I’m sure Bubba is backing her up on this one.

Of course she won’t testify, she is not a good of a liar like her husband..she hasn’t mastered looking at the American people right in the eye, pointing her little finger at the camera, and lying through her teeth..Bill can do that down pat, Hillary is still figuring out how to do it without laughing

So, let me get this straight.. The State Department tells Congress what to do? Am I missing something? Maybe a Dictatorship or something? /s

She’s just going to have to attend that meeting in Samoa during the time of the investigation. Diplomacy takes precedence. Too bad that the Committee dissolves on December 31. Isn’t it amazing how these important diplomatic missions occur during the uncovering of $h!t in the State Department.

I think Obama and Rice have started the next narrative:

—They have already explained all that they need to about this tragedy. There are critical events and life or death issues that they are working on for the American people, and they can not be distracted at this time, especially over this republican witch hunt.... blah, blah, blah.

Time is their friend. The longer they drag it out, the less the public will care and there will be more pressing events that will detract.

I suspect that the MSM will now go completely quiet on Benghazi.... they pretty much already have.

From the link:
We ask our diplomats and development personnel to operate in some of the most dangerous places on the planet,” Sen. John Kerry, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said in a statement today announcing the hearing. “We owe it to them, and we owe it to the memory of Ambassador Chris Stevens and his three fellow Americans who lost their lives in Benghazi to get past the politics and focus on the substance of what happened and what it tells us about diplomatic security going forward.”

So Senate RINOs get O to kill Rice's possible nomination to replace her with this guy?
I saw McCain praising him today. And Chris Matthews too.
Lets see if they (Senate RINOs) fall all over themselves for John Kerry in his conformation, if he is the one.

That train has left the station:

"And the GOP senators who were most hostile to Rice — John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire, and, later, Susan Collins of Maine — all have said they would welcome Kerry as Secretary of State."

I first noticed that they are all part of the (white) RINO club and then later I heard some of them praising Kerry who is like them, it clicked. He is part of their elite Senate 'club'

O is sending out points to libs/MSNBC that Rice was their first choice, to stem off any bounce back.

Matthews is thrilled about Kerry getting it.

This is a nothing victory.

Hillery will not testify to any Congressional Committee until all of those Benghazi injured and currently hospitalized are either silenced or bought off.That is not yet accomplished.

The press has not been informed of the names of the Benghazi injured and has been kept away from them.One
wonders if they will even live much longer under the veil of secrecy and censorship imposed by POSHITUS.

It's good to be part of the Ruling Class. Four American lives lost and it's all about protecting the incompetent people who caused it.

No problem though, most of their supporters think Ben Ghazi is the guy who was on the 60’s TV Show “Run for your Life”.

Now remind me, why did Nixon resign again?

Impeach Obama Benghazi, then try him for Treason alongside Hillary Clinton.

Heard this earlier on Fox but haven't been here to post. Forgive my time delay. At any rate, the REAL coverup starts now.

They had expected public interest in this would have faded by now and no one would still be paying attention after all the peripheral BS and the bogus election, the susan rice misdirection, the petraeus fish story, the 'fiscal claptrap' whatever.

They were wrong.

Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.

I’m wondering if Hillary is already under the direction of her soon to be campaign manager senor axelrod?
Sooner or later she will be faced with the decision to go with or against the bent axel since he is the obvious king maker at this juncture in time.

"Paul Shanklin classic."

After Paul gained fame and well-deserved stature from the Rush Limbaugh radio show, he began over-producing his numbers marked by full orchestras and choruses....with mostly unmemorable tunes and too many with unintelligible words.

Too bad. The words and tunes from his early, simpler parodies remain in the memory. A real early one, "Bomb, Bomb, Bomb Iraq' is imbedded in my brain like a long ago romance.

Songs like the Teddy Kennedy spoof, "I'm a Philanderer" and "The Banking Queen" (Barney Frank) were memorable along with "My Brain is Jell-o" (Hillary), "The Justice Brothers" (Jesse/Sharpton duo) and "Barack the Magic Negro".....all of which have simple musical arrangements and which feature lyrics which are understandable when listening to a radio.

As I read this latest story on Benghazi, I am enraged. Four precious Americans are dead, and this administration has managed to prolong and avoid probing questions as to what went wrong and why and who gave orders to thwart efforts to assist and help the brave Navy Seals who fought and hoped help was on the way. That help never came! I recall President Obama promising those responsible would be brought to justice but that is not possible when the investigation is thwarted at every turn by those in this administration!

Where is Hillary Clinton and why has she not volunteered to assist and answer probing questions that the Secretary of State should willingly provide to the families and the American people?! Cover-up again?

I am currently reading the book “Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer”, by author Marinka Peschmann. The cover-ups documented in this book (over 300 footnotes) by the Clinton administration regarding the death of Vince Foster are disturbing, to say the least. The timing of the publication of this book is haunting. The cover-up tactics used then are eerily similar to the evasive and outrageous tactics playing out in the Benghazi investigation.

In Peschmann’s previous book, The Whistleblower, she sums up the premise of the book in these words: “The Obama administration is the Clinton administration on steroids.” Many of the players are the same and the tactics are all too familiar.

Below is an interview of Ms Peschmann on WCBM, discussing her book. I encourage you to listen:

http://www.marinkapeschmann.com/2012/12/11/media-alert-join-me-tomorrow-at-837am-et-on-the-sean-frank-show-wcbm-talk-radio/

Ms Peschmann’s message is cautionary, it is chilling and it is real. We have 4 dead Americans and their families and all Americans deserve answers.

I encourage Americans to read “Following Orders” and I hope many interviews are granted Ms. Peschmann. The author can be reached through her website: http://www.marinkapeschmann.com/
