Benghazi investigators demand cable signed by Clinton; White House balks
Washington Times ^ | 4/25/13 | Susan Crabtree & Stephen Dinan

Posted on 04/25/2013 9:08:38 AM PDT by Nachum

The White House accused Republicans of a political distraction Wednesday after House committee chairmen asked President Obama to release a State Department cable that they said would prove Hillary Rodham Clinton, as secretary off state, signed off on security cuts at the diplomatic post in Benghazi ahead of the attack Sept. 11. According to the committee chairmen, the April 2012 Clinton cable denies the U.S. Embassy in Libya’s request for more security. Five months later, the outpost in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were killed, including Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

I think the word "perhaps" is superfluous here. She took orders from the White House. But both Hillary and Obama were tutored by the same Master: Saul Alinsky.

True, perjury as well. Had they told the truth, it would’ve been a bit more difficult for 0bama to steal the 2012 election.

The GOP should hold both Billary and JNap publicly accountable for Benghazi and Boston.

Sadly, our Pubbie *leadership* seem to be part of the Progressive movement and continue to aid in the cover ups.

Are there no patriots left to defend this country?

Instead of outrage we get silence.

The democrips cheat to win elections. BUT if the populace who are eligible to vote would get off their condescending butts and go vote against these criminal bastards then We The People have one last chance to take this country back in 2014. So, the democrips know this and we can watch to see what they will do now to squelch opposition voting in 2014, because to make the final putsch to end the Republic they will need to hold the Senate and nullify the House by getting it to 50/50 or in their control more than just having their puppet Boehner as speaker.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Mrs. Clinton’s signature on the cable was standard for all diplomatic cables and was a practice continued from prior administrations.

Um, so? She signed it. Signature means approval. If she's stupid enough to sign something and not know what it is, that's her fault.

How is it political distraction? Is Hillary running for office? Is Obama? This comment makes no sense...like just about everything else that comes from the White Hut.

Uhmmmmmmmmmm, here’s a thought:

Why do you think their next big push is going to be immigration “REFORM”?

They need to get it passed in time to get all those additional Demotard voters registered.

Lots of people think the 2014 eelction is going to be the turning point for this country’s future. ie Will we continue down the path of insane socialist policies or return to some common sense to the governing of this once great nation.

ACTUALLY, the decision will be made when the immigration “REFORM” law is voted on by the congresscritters. If it passes, we’re done, over and served on a silver platter to the lib/demotards forevermore.

The election of 2014 and all subsequent ones will become nothing more than American Political Theater (if they even bother to spend the money on any).

After all, the bazillion or so “wasted” on national elections could SURELY be better spent on one deseriving social program or another right?????

By their fruits (actions they take) you can know them. No, not talking about false prophets this time, talking about those who serve the gloabliast agenda. Regardless of which party they claim, if they are supporting the ‘amnesty’ sham they are working for the final end of The Republic. pay attention, America, you will reap what these bastards ‘sew’.

We know security sucked, and Hillary was responsible. That's not the point.

The point is that 0bambi was gun-running from Ghaddafi's stockpiles to Al Qaeda linked terrorists in Syria, by all indications.

I'm waiting to have someone disprove that the Turkish ships and diplomats involved were not shipping guns. What else were they doing?

It's hard to define foreign enemies in these days of totalitarianspeak. Imagine the complications defining domestic enemies, especially when they put on the FALSE FLAG of preserve, protect, defend.

White House Indicates Clinton’s Signature on Benghazi Docs Not Hers

(CNSNews.com) – The White House dismissed the signature of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on documents ignoring security concerns in Benghazi, calling it “protocol” for government official “signatures” to appear on documents they did not sign.

(Snip)

“And on the issue of the signature, you have to be factual and acknowledge reality here. It is standard protocol that cables originating from the department in Washington go out under the authority of the current Secretary of State with their signature, i.e. their name, typed at the bottom. This practice has been in place throughout this administration and across prior administrations, both Democratic and Republican.”

“Additionally, all cables originating from our overseas posts are similarly signed, i.e. have the name at the bottom, by the ambassador and are addressed to the secretary,” Carney said. “In this way, this Secretary Clinton and others before her signed hundred of thousands of cables during their tenures as secretary.”

Benghazi should have thrown the 2012 election right into Romney’s lap. The foreign policy debate was a present that remained unopened. Aside from the voter fraud, I still cannot comprehend what happened.

Maybe she’ll say it was signed with *auto pen* (or whatever it’s called) and because it wasn’t from her own hand it doesn’t count. She’ll never admit to anything and the public’s memory is this {} long.
