Rand Paul reacts to tense exchange with Hillary Clinton
Fox News ^ | Hannity

Posted on 01/24/2013 11:53:20 AM PST by JohnPDuncan

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: Since our founding, the United States is been a nation that respects all favorites, we reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. But there is absolutely no justifications for this type of senseless violence, none.

CLINTON: Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its contents and message. America's commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

HANNITY: Senator, that's eight days after the attack, 14 days after the attack, the president himself is still blaming the video. All the evidence to the contrary from the president of Libya, to our own State Department watching in Real Time. We knew that wasn't true.

PAUL: Without question, without question, there was a political cover-up. Without question--

HANNITY: Why, why do you think that is?

PAUL: Well, I asked one question. I got one question in towards the end of my period and I said, were we involved with selling, buying or procuring or transferring arms to Turkey? I think arms were being sold and have been sold out of Libya to turkey and they're winding up in the hands of the Syrian rebels. I think they did not want to draw attention to that, that may have been occurring to the CIA annex.

The GOP needs to stay on top of this Benghazi fiasco. The commie ‘RATS appear to be pulling the Mother of all Coverups here and Slick Willie’s wife is in the middle of it. I’m not buying her staged performance yesterday. That was a joke.

That wouldn’t be surprising. The Obama Administration running guns around the world, paid for by the taxpayers, getting tens of thousands of people killed. Meanwhile, Obama wants to ban guns in America.

Agreed.

The bigger scandal is the gun running operation, why Stevens was there and what was the purpose of the CIA Annex? There are arms that are now in the hands of militants who are using them to kill people (including Americans) in Algeria.

The media are being very silent on all this!

There are numerous reports in the press, including the New York Times, of arms going out of Libya to Turkey

Rand called it an “international Fast and Furious”, it’s going to come out sooner or later, probably in a few years.

But how many people - including Americans - will die because the arms going out of Benghazi?

Best guess ... zer0’s army (the army zer0 supported in libya) was running the weapons. Ambassador Stevens and the Ambassador's people found out. The Turkish diplomat was sent in to locate Ambassador Stevens and the Ambassador's people because of the security breach. The information was meant to remain unknown. zer0’s army then attacked after confirmation of Ambassador Stevens and the Ambassador's people was verified by the Turkish diplomat.

Could Petraeus be linked to all this some how? Seems he had to go rather quickly.

What does he know about the CIA annex and what does Brennan know?

Beck put these puzzle pieces together months ago by reading AP and Reuters main stream news. Put that together with Hillary’s new non-endorsement of the Arab Spring and that equals Becks prediction of the Muzzie Brohood’s Califate of nations. I’m not too far from believing the Al CIA-da conspiracy theories of RT news and their Syrian Girl blogger.

Petraeus was head of the CIA....why wouldn’t he know what was going on there?

BTW, did Rand Paul get an answer from Hillary as to his question about the gunrunning?

Why else would BO and Hillary not call for help when they were under attack. Had to Vince Foster Stevens. When in BHO going to be called to testify? He is the CIC and has the word on military action-not the State Dept. They better not let this go.

She said she would look into it as no one has raised it with her before and that he would have to ask the agency responsible for the annex i.e the CIA.

Brennan is a major Muslim sympathizer and may in fact be a Muslim convert himself. Can you imagine being a CIA agent under him? Yipes!

Much of the military is compromised, and the US government has been running guns since well before the turn of the Twentieth Century.

The qualifier is that before Carter, we ran guns to the proper side, those who had some common interest with the best interests of the average American citizen.

No more, the US now supplies those that intend the defeat and subjugation of the United States entirely.

The current goal is to put the entire US military at the disposal of the Muslim Brotherhood World Caliphate builders as taxpayer paid mercenaries fighting for the MB for free. NATO is already there.

Eventually, the government won't have to keep this gun running to Muslims secret, but those that object to it will have to keep that secret.

I think this could be a guns 2 jihadists scandal.

We need answers from the CIA but notice how quickly Petraeus left.

The woman he got involved with sounds like a classic honey trap.

The media are being very silent on all this!

The media has CIA gatekeepers - at least all the major outlets - so of course they're being silent on this. Occasionally a story leaks out, but it is quickly buried and sent to the memory black hole with no follow up.

We're in the last throes of the awkward stage and speeding into the Kristallnacht stage.

Plus Egypt to receive US taxpayer funded aid package of 20 of the latest version F-16 on top of the 225 they already have and 200 Abrams MIA2 main battle tanks.

They don’t make new M1s from scratch anymore, these are upgraded M1A1 and will come from out of our own inventory.

Meanwhile, ironically, the same crew is trying to ban gun ownership domestically.

GayMuzzie went even FURTHER:

“The future cannot belong to those who slander the name of the PROPHET OF ISLAM”

Never forget he said that.

And his allies in Syria include Al Qaeda, whom HE ARMED...!

If Obama think it’s smart to arm AQ in Syria it’s going to get very messy when the regime falls there.

yep, the article and all the people mentioned in the article told the truth. The on the ground, current situation proves nobody lied in that report. Isn’t it wonderful to be able to trust the writers, those mentioned in the report, the report itself, and all the information contained therein. I’m surprised it didn’t mention (in the report) j. sKerry served in Vietnam.

And I remember Hillary’s bemused reaction to Paul’s question:
“TURKEY?????” she said, with a strange smile on her face,and the beginning of a head-shake, as if to indicate she had NO idea what he was talking about.It’s obvious that this aspect of it is the ONE thing they don’t want uncovered-—it greatly complicates the picture, ,makes the Ambassador look like even more of a pawn and fall-guy, and takes the whole incident out of the low-level area of “security”, and into the big,dirty realm of gun-running, and complicity in taking a pro-active part in possibly helping Islamic militants (ironically,now seen as “the good guys”) gain power in Syria.
