Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton warns GOP lawmakers not to act like North Africa terrorists

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, while lamenting the partisanship of congressional Republicans who grilled her about the Benghazi attack, encouraged Republicans not to imitate the unwillingness to compromise evinced by terrorists in North Africa.
It has been increasingly partisan, Clinton said today at the Newseum when asked to comment on the questioning she faced from Republicans last week. You can be partisan, you can have a strong sense of the rightness of your position, but democracy and certainly legislative bodies require compromise. And you cant let compromise become a dirty word because then you veer toward fanaticism.
I mean, we were just talking about extremists who think its only their way, they are the ones who have the truth, none of the rest of us have any kind of claim on what is real in their views, she continued. And so its important in our democracies like Australia, like the United States that yes, be passionate, be intense about your feelings, but at the end of the day youve got to serve the people who sent you there, and that requires compromise.
The extremists Clinton had just been discussing included those that carried out the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, resulting in the deaths of the U.S. Ambassador to Libya and three other Americans.
This is not what the Arab revolution was about, and theres a great deal of concern across the region about people who choose to use violence to try to impose their extremist views rather than participate in politics, Clinton said of the terrorist attacks taking place around North Africa. It does have the potential, however, of expanding beyond the region, which is why I think youre seeing an international concern and coalition coming together to support the people of Mali, to stand by the Government of Algeria, to work with the Government of Libya, so that they themselves are given the tools they need to combat this extremist threat.
Ironically, Obamugabe is a north African terrorist. Or is Kenya further south.
That’s rich. Evita Peron said something almost like this to hijack the government and kill the opposition.
Good going, Hillary. We can call you Evita Clintonista.
Real piece of work...
Shut up Hillary, you’re drunk!
Mrs. Slick Willie needs to stop acting like a Stepford Wife.
I was looking for the satire tag.
This woman is nutz.
Isn’t she a disgusting piece of garbage? Ask Vince Foster what he thinks about her warning. What a useless twit!
Kenya is much farther south.
Me too. Thought it was The Onion.
Hillary’s idiocy is why 9/11’s happen, I’m sure will have another soon, thanks to these idiots!
How did that Happen?
This lying sack of alinski accuses her opponents of her own dirty deeds.
I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration somehow you're not patriotic, and we should stand up and say ... we are Americans and we have a right to debate and disagree with ANY administration!!!!
No. That ONLY applies to fellow socialists comrade ...
Slick Willie had a way of charming just about anyone if he wanted to, especially if they were in the same room. Hillary has learned nothing from him. She’s just a b@#$h.
Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the (House Judiciary) committee. Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former law professor, Burke Marshall, who was also Sen. Ted Kennedys chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair. When the investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation one of only three people who earned that dubious distinction in Zeifmans 17-year career.
Because she was a liar, Zeifman said in an interview last week. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.
Somebody call a waaaaaaaaaambulance!
(My tagline’s still apropo.)
"The ['Hillary Care'] plan prescribed some eye-popping maximum fines: $5,000 for refusing to join the government mandated health plan; $5,000 for failing to pay premiums on time; 15 years in prison for doctors who received anything of value in exchange for helping patients short circuit bureaucracy; $10,000 a day for faulty physician paperwork; and $50,000 for unauthorized patient treatment. When told the plan could bankrupt small businesses, Mrs. Clinton said, 'I cant be responsible for every under-capitalized small business in America'!" -- Tony Snow reporting on Hillary's health care plan
Hey Hillary since you no longer hold public office and are just a civilian like the rest of us why don’t ya go f””k yourself?
You beat me to it!
The Red Queen knows.
Last time I checked, it was Hillary and obama helping AQ in Libya and Africa. She and her sidekick are the ones who refused to help an ambassador in distress.
Bizarro world. Biden, Hillary,
"Four Americans were murdered on my watch, so what difference at this point does it make?
"I was caught stealing over $100,000 of publicly owned property out of the White House when I left, so what difference at this point does it make?
"I lied to little children about how I got my name, so what difference at this point does it make?
"I obstructed justice in the White Water investigation, so what difference at this point does it make?
"I perjured myself numerous times, so what difference at this point does it make?
"My daughter looks like Webster Hubbell, so what difference at this point does it make?
"(fill in the blank), so what difference at this point does it make?
Maybe Hillary should stop acting like a flying monkey.
That is the Pic I was looking For!
Hillary used to so severely parse her utterances to a point of complete incoherence. Not anymore. She practically levitates on verbosity, chucked to overflow with wordy global themes and foreign name dropping in terms of world events and global strategies.
An intellectual elitist Hillary is very dangerous, and is openly taking presumption to a new level.
Trust me, Hillary is already running for ‘16, and it will be “no contest” for nomination. She can not, even at this early date, contain herself or refrain from shouting out in exhibition style her unmatched wisdom vast competence.
Hillary now believes she is over qualified for the presidency, and is already out to drive that point home. She can wait to be drafted and still take the nomination.
It will be a coronation, and the Republicans better put up a real wordsmith up against her who can pierce her BS bubble in hand to hand combat.
Ah and finally the real intentions on left come right out in the open. Normal people are terrorists. Gays, pedophiles, abotionists and the willingly ignorant are heros who have been falsely accused of injustices against wholesomeness. Now they will proceed to use our money and weapons we purchased to attempt to destroy us. At least they are finally being honest about their intentions. Leaves one to wonder who will feed them when the rest of us are gone.
Publius 911 warns Hillary not to act like a Black Panthers, with the warnings.
About Benghazi, What did you know and when did you know it?
Did you decide on the dissimulation technique or were you coached?
Four people dead or four hundred, or four thousand, what difference does it make?
If you can't figure that out, you qualify to work for Omugabe!
Wait... never mind...
US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its we stand by our condemnation tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!
Here is Hillary pushing it again on Sept. 13th.
Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56)
Here is a 'senior administration official' trying to distance 0bamugabe from Hillary's f-up and at the same time admitting by inference that she was the source of the 'video did it' meme.
Senior administration official: The Cairo embassys statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement disgraceful

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.
The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government, a senior administration official told POLITICO
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.
And here 0bamugabe and Hillary work together to try to prop up her 'video did it' nonsense and spread it even further.
Nope, she never said anything about a 'video.'

How can the GOP act like terrorists if bathhouse barry didn’t arm them Hitlary?
> Hillarys idiocy is why 9/11s happen, Im sure will have another soon, thanks to these idiots!
Now why would they destroy a nation they’ve already taken over and ruin it when they can exploit it? They just haven’t made the announcement yet.
Pushing the envelope of true, unabashed lunacy, as usual.
She’s a witch.
Thanks For That Great + Historical Post!
Hussein attacked Libya.
With those glasses, she looks like one of the Hanson brothers from the movie “Slap Shot.”
You’re welcome. Glad to be of assistance.
That's an inconvenient truth.
Fox News and Rush Limbaugh have been reprimanded for that sort of thing.
