Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton: “I Did Not Say It Was About The Video ... “What Difference Does It Make”….
Posted on 01/24/2013 6:21:22 AM PST by Uncle Chip
WASHINGTON DC Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified at the House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing, answering questions on the attack in Benghazi, Libya.
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) pressed her on the anti-Islamic video that was originally blamed for the attack.
When you briefed us, you said unequivocally this was a result of a video and I remember in fact you got pretty upset about it when somebody suggested this was a terrorist attack.
Clinton said, I did not say that it was about the video for Libya, it certainly was for many of the other places where we were watching these disturbances. (link)
She is a LIAR PERIOD She blamed the video the very next day and beyond:

Fake crying just like Bill at Ron Brown’s funeral.
Of course Hillary is a liar. She’s also an airhead. She’s also lionized by the pitiful fools who call themselves progressives.
Didn’t she & Obama make a $75,000 tv commercial on Pakistan tv blaming the video???
So what? They’re Democrats and Democrats never have to answer to anything. Libya, Fast and Furious, etc. Never any consequences and Republicans never push it beyond a little cackling so they can try to look at least a little tough.
Like I wrote in another post: When a POTUS with absolutely no qualifications for the job picks a S of S with absolutely no qualifications for the job other than being married to a rapist, people get killed.
Here’s what difference it makes Secretary, if the attack was a result of a video, the administration and the State Department cannot be held responsible for such an event. If the attack was a well-planned assault timed to “commemorate” 9/11 and neither the administration nor the State Department saw it coming, that’s a failure of leadership and the blame rests squarely with you and the president. That’s the difference.
The torture, abuse, and murder of a POW named Momar Gaddafi was a war crime.
"WE came. WE saw. HE DIED!!!" - Sec. of Hate Hillary Clinton.
And that boondoggle HAS cost American lives, DESPITE Ubama proclaiming "Mission Accomplished" at the United Nations in September 2011.
The next question should been, "If true, why did you POS's in the State Department offer an apology to those offended within hours of the attacks?"
If there ever was a God, if there is a God, I am begging him to revoke this hag’s life force NOW!
The murder of these four men makes a great difference to their surviving families you POS.
i believe it was Rush that mentioned the Pakistan Commercial yesterday. a copy must exist...there should be plenty of evidence to nail her to the wall on this lie alone, but she knows the ruling class will ignore it all
Like husband, like wife...terrible family trait.
Personally, I think she must have the IQ of your average tree slug... or she'd even be better at evading the truth and shirking her responsibility! :) I guess the dog ate her moral com pas!
Fake crying just like Bill at Ron Browns funeral.
I remember Vince Foster as well.
I have been to the park with one of the main witnesses on a Saturday tour of the events.
FES0844~:” Didnt she & Obama make a $75,000 tv commercial on Pakistan tv blaming the video??? “
Yes , there are reports ,coincidental to the attack on Benghazi , as an apology commercial to Pakistan .
That money would have been better served by hiring adequate security in Benghazi ; coincidental to the attack , it seems that the already hired local Lybian security were in dispute over pay and salary.
However , prior to the attack at Benghazi , the embassy in Egypt released a written statement , which the State Dept. ordered cancelled . However , the statement had already been released by the embassy , and later retracted .
...”testified”?????????? This lieing hag miscreant wasn’t under oath and never will be. Isn’t it interesting how they are so above us?
yes they did...
>>Didnt she & Obama make a $75,000 tv commercial on Pakistan tv blaming the video???
“The Anti-Anti-Islam Film TV Ad By US in Pakistan Repudiating Film”
The media is more concerned about some athletes supposedly lying to Congress about hormone injections.
“What difference does it make?”
“Keep your laws off my body!”
...testified?????????? This lieing hag miscreant wasnt under oath and never will be. Isnt it interesting how they are so above us?
I confess that if I had not left my 45 year home of the Seattle suburbs for a secluded small farm in central Kentucky in 2011 the events of the last year would have me sweating bullets. At least I can prepare for what’s coming in a very real way.
I’ll not need to “bug out” because, essentially, I already have. I wouldn’t want to live on it, but our chickens already produce more than enough eggs to support all our caloric needs.
"Vince Foster??? -- Who cares, Senator. A man is dead. Who cares how he died??? Who cares whether he rolled himself up in a carpet and drove himself to the park and shot himself or someone else did??? He's dead. What difference does it make???"
[now what were we talking about]
That was the first tell-tale sign that it was all for show.
So, what difference did it make that she was part of the team that drummed a conservative president out of office for misleading the American people over a fourth-rate burglary - where nobody died I might add - and then she gloated over that. And it now makes no difference when the stakes are substantially higher?
[now what were we talking about]
What should we have for lunch. That’s something we care about. ;-)
Why doesn’t she get any punishment for lying under oath? Spineless, gutless Republicans all of them.
under oath, i doubt it, but even if *sworn* would it really matter, as perjury is a toon trait and a badge of honor it would seem...???
in the end, the *review* board evidently determined all of the fault lies with 'assistant SOS and below' leaving the cankles in the clear...all she has to do is spin the p/r for a couple yrs and she'll be good to go for '16...
Clinton’s lie, people die!
Hillary and BO have had one of their Hollywood actor friends coach them on how to act like they are crying in public. Hillary’s outburst was so fake. She and BO both have no feelings for anyone but themselves and everyone knows it.
Perhaps the Steamship that delivers International Mail and Packages ran out of wood to burn in the boilers.
It absolutely baffles me where this dingbat ever got that tag of intelligence. WHAT has she ever done that is so freakin’ intelligent? She’s an unmitigated disaster as S of S, as senator she was just as bad. I live in New York and as far as I can tell her only accomplishments as Senator was getting unemployment benefits extended and constantly going on trips.
Just out of curiosity I looked up the brainiacs accomplishments as Senator:
In five years as the most influential Democrat in the Senate, Hillary has managed to get the following laws and resolutions enacted:
Establish the Kate Mullany National Historic Site
Support the goals and ideals of Better Hearing and Speech Month
Recognize the Ellis Island Medal of Honor
Name courthouse after Thurgood Marshall
Name courthouse after James L. Watson
Name post office after John A. O’Shea
Designate August 7, 2003, as National Purple Heart Recognition Day
Support the goals and ideals of National Purple Heart Recognition Day
Honor the life and legacy of Alexander Hamilton on the bicentennial of his death
Congratulate the Syracuse University Orange Men’s Lacrosse Team on winning the championship.
Congratulate the Le Moyne College Dolphins Men’s Lacrosse Team on winning the championship
Establish the 225th Anniversary of the American Revolution Commemorative Program
Name post office after Sergeant Riayan A. Tejeda
Honor Shirley Chisholm for her service to the nation and express condolences on her death
Honor John J. Downing, Brian Fahey, and Harry Ford, firefighters who lost their lives on duty.
Only five of Clinton’s bills are, according to Morris, “substantive”:
Extend period of unemployment assistance to victims of 9/11
Pay for city projects in response to 9/11
Assist landmine victims in other countries
Assist family caregivers in accessing affordable respite care
Designate part of the National Forest System in Puerto Rico as protected in the Wilderness Preservation System
Actually I think this guy listed too much because I can’t remember any of that stuff except for the unemployment benefits.
Have a little pity.
Hillary + BroncO:
They are both proven liars, are known for throwing their partners, their subordinates under the bus.
They are known for , suspected of, and have gotten away with running the bus OVER those they throw under it.
As the highest officeholders in the US, everyone kisses their 'exit tube', so seeing themselves as 'ultimate masters' becomes a habit, even a vice.
They won't admit they are gay, but expect all their gay friends to be proud of being gay.
They ruthlessly cheat to stay on top, and will dance on the graves of children if it keeps them 'in power'.
Both are 'isolated' sexually and maritally from their spouses.
They know there are plenty of people who would stand in line at their burial to piss on their grave, and their spouses would probably be first in line.
They have no real friends, they have likely had killed the ones who loved them most, and even though they have 'everything', they will never find true peace and happiness.
One day, though, they will get what they truly deserve , as all do in the end.
The filthy liar. She told the family of one person killed that they would get the people who made that video.
Liberals compete with one another in how much taxpayer money they can F up!
The most profligate and irresponsible spenders are gods on earth to them!
Because she wasn't 'testifying' under oath in a courtroom . She was only being questioned by a committee to which she helped staff. (remember the parts where she 'welcomed' the 'noobs'? Did you see her wink at them?)
She later berated the only two males with any cahones for not following 'past practice' where the committee is supposed to figure out what went wrong and make recommendations for the NEW officeholder (SOS in this case) to apply, laying no blame on the current officeholder, nor asking any embarrassing questions.
There was no difference between Hillary 'speaking' to this committee, and Sandra Fluke 'speaking' to Congress at a fake 'hearing' set up by the MSM.
Neither is legally binding.
All of what you said should make her the favorite for the Democratic nomination in 2016. I know these high level politicians calculate every word and gesture they use for public consumption, but her crocodile tears were a little too much to take. I wonder if Uncle Joe and Seven Bullet Cuomo can cry on cue too? Fake compassion and emotions are an automatic prerequisite for any Democratic politician who wants to climb the ladder.
What difference does it make that the State employees “guilty” of dereliction of duty are suspended, with pay? Why not fired? Another farce we are must endure.
In fairness and interest of truth, Hillary didn’t say (at least in the video I just watched) that the ‘video’ (edited and voice dubbed clips from artsy soft porn film placed on the internet by a tech crew) caused the attack on the embassy (CIA black market weapons dealership).
She said it caused ‘related’ attacks in the area.
I won’t deny she ‘ever’ said it, just that in the video at the link, she doesn’t.
we need the photo of her kissing arafats wife that was on the cover of the NY POST.
we need the photo of her kissing arafats wife that was on the cover of the NY POST. with this slogan.
Yep! And they are going to spend us into a 3rd world country. I don’t even want to think what the debt is going to be 4 years from now or how high unemployment is going to be not that the communist propaganda machine posing as our MSM will ever report the real figure. I drive all over New York city as part of my job and when Bush was POTUS you would never see the homeless asking for money at stop lights, NEVER. Now they are allllll over the place. Even at 4 or 5 in the morning I’m getting hit up for money. I got hit up 3 times today just crossing the 59th street bridge, freezing cold they are standing out there. And I’m not talking about junkie bums but people who are well dressed. This statement that unemployment is at 8 or 9% is utter utter BS. All these libs who live on the upper west side should take a look at the churches around where they live. The steps are covered in cardboard boxes at night with people sleeping.
She pulls a Mr Costanza at the last minute. She stops short. She stops just short of it.
But what she expects her listeners to infer from it is clear.
She is very clever for sure.
“Shows she lied under oath on TV.”
Not the first time, and it won’t be the last. The media is already staging her for pres for 2016. Didn’t think it could get worse than B. O.?? Wait ‘til we get this totalitarian biotch!
And that is the real problem. We, the republicans should have ripped this nut to shreds. And don't give me this shi@ that she is a woman. She is the Secretary of State and liars need to be taken down and the higher up the punishment must be harder.
