State Department preparing for Libya bombshell?

State Department preparing for Libya bombshell?
Published December 14, 2012
FoxNews.com

Susan Rice's abrupt withdrawal from consideration for secretary of state, coupled with suggestions from the State Department that Secretary Hillary Clinton may not testify as scheduled next week, has stirred speculation that something big is brewing in the Libya terror attack investigation.

"You're starting to see the State Department squirm a little bit," Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, said.

For the better part of the last three months, an independent board has been conducting a review for the State Department of the Sept. 11 terror attack in Benghazi. In anticipation of the report's conclusion, two congressional committees scheduled hearings for next week in which Clinton was set to testify.

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland, though, surprised lawmakers and reporters on Thursday when she indicated the report, and the secretary, might not be ready.

A spokeshole for Sec State Hillbilly said “Madam Secretary will bash her head on a door frame as much as necessary to get the job done for the president.”

I would speculate from a probabilistic perspective that it is too coincidental that this should occur right during examination. The high degree of coincidence points to the improbability of truth.....

makes me think of the OJ lines, and as you start multiplying the improbabilities, you start approaching 100% assurity of the truth. Each event by itself, might have been questionable... but when you link all the improbabilities you get closer to his 100% guilt.

Same as Fast & Furious —they dispatched to Iraq and Afghanistan all the principals. “They’re on assignment abroad and unavailable”.

MOST INSULTING ADMINISTRATION IN US HISTORY.

What could they possibly be hiding? We already know about running guns to the “rebels” in Syria, arming Jihadis, Al Qaeda affiliates ... Could it be that we were transferring nerve gas to those fighting Assad? Transferring weapons to Hamas to attack Israel? What else?

If it were to surface that Obama himself gave the order to his buddies to kill our ambassador and the other folks who thought they were just working for the U.S. Government, it would not make any difference.

Providing weapons to Israel’s enemies will be supported and explained away by the MSMs. You see it now in the stpries about the evil Israel attacking the innocent Gazans.

Well, we had Ambassador Stevens meeting with someone from TURKEY in Benghazi on the day of the attack. Now, we’re putting Patriot missiles in TURKEY. Think there might be a connection?

Even with all the turmoil over the Purple Heart, Kerry Rope-a-Doped through all the Swift Boating. This is the type of guy the Left wants at our State Department. Kerry will speak the Big Lie at any cost until Hell freezes over. Kerry lost his Presidential election over that. What will he lose the next time?

A whole new plan to islamicize the entire continent of Africa south of the Sahara and Nigeria all the way down to South Africa? Heck I don’t know, but it would have to be something major. The Middle East is pretty much taken care of as far as that is concerned.

Kerry is a traitor. He tried to negotiate with the north Vietnamese in an attempted end run around our government.

He should be in prison not the senate or is is it unnecessary to say that?

George Soros is a one trick pony. He’s made his money off of “Reflexivity”, which is a fancy way of saying that he plays suckers. He’s a Grifter. He’s running The Big Con. Obama and Hillary are just Shills. They are accomplices to the Grifter. They are used to direct the Mark’s attention away from The Big Con. The reason the Obama administration is covering up Benghazi, is because it leads to The Big Con. If the real truth about Obama and Hillary and their actions in the Middle East get out, it’s curtains for the Democrat party. The socialists will quit because it’s all about making big money. The liberals will quit because they’ve been killing people for profit. The women will quit because their actions have made it really unsafe for us. The environmentalists will quit because it’s all about oil.

What I heard today on CNN, was, due to her stomach virus, she fainted and hit her head and has a concussion and is home being cared for and may not be able to testify next week.

This illness and fainting and concussion is totally out of her control so you can’t blame her for not showing up next week. If you are nasty and don’t believe she is ill, shame on you. (this is a sarcastic post in case you can’t tell).

The Embassador and some of those killed were a part of serious gun running to Syria. The Benghazi shooting started when we tried to get the special weapons back from Libyan rebels to transfer to Syria.

For it to be a “Libyan Bombshell”, you don’t think maybe we are supplying the Syrians (either side) chemical weapons, do ya?

If a ‘’Libya bombshell’’ happens but the pro-Obama media refuses to cover it as anything but a minor story, will it still be a bombshell?

Another question: In the wake of Hillary’s fainting and concussion revelations and her inability to appear for Congressional hearings on Benghazi next week, WHY haven’t the Republican chairmen of the committees she was scheduled to appear before issued statements that the hearings will still be be held but will be postponed?

Without such statements, it appears that the Republicans aren’t really all that interested in the hearings, which is not a good impression to give.

“All she needs to get better is a walk in the park.”

She was in on the park one so no way is she going to any park. However, since she used, “I can’t remember”, and “I can’t find the records” in the Arkansas cases, maybe she will claim her memory left her due to the concussion so she can’t remember anything about Libya, in fact, where is that country as she doesn’t remember that, either.

I wish some of the Republican senators would block this traitor from becoming Secretary of State. But I'm dreaming.
Obama might as well nominate Jane Fonda as to nominate John Kerry. They are both traitors.

Does this mean they haven't been since day one? And if it's only a 'little bit', it isn't nearly enough.

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

We can see where this all is leading. She may not be able to testify for years. At least IMHO, God knows if she has the blood of those four Americans on her hands or not.
It would seem like the CIA has more of a worry, since we now understand the nature of the operation. Who knows, where this whole sordid affair is going to lead.

Seems to be a pattern with Guilty Democrats, a new Witness Protection Agency.....is the Medical Profession.

Notice how when it gets to close to them they enter a Hospital or under Dr.s protection at home.

Remember that Election official in Florida? How soon did she come out of that hospital after West gave up?

Well, I did suggest nerve gas as a possibility, so yes. We could run a false flag operation and gas a town or hospital and blame it on Assad as the pretext for a full military intervention.

Yes, she & Obama are slow-walking this as long as possible. Their hope is to delay her testimony so long that she will be able to plausibly claim "Oh, that was such a long time ago, I don't remember."

And now she has an added escuse: "My head injury gave me amnesia..." (or "my mind is jello").
