Hillary perjured herself on Benghazi? (More of her testimony called into question)
WND ^ | May 8, 2013 | Aaron Klein

JERUSALEM – Did former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lie under oath when she testified in the January Benghazi hearings that no one within the government ever recommended the closure of the U.S. facilities in the Libyan city?

In her Jan. 23 testimony, Clinton stated: “Well, senator, I want to make clear that no one in the State Department, the intelligence community, any other agency, ever recommended that we close Benghazi. We were clear-eyed about the threats and the dangers as they were developing in eastern Libya and in Benghazi.”

Clinton was responding to a question from Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz.

However, WND has found that Clinton’s testimony is contradicted by Lt. Col. Andrew Wood, who led the U.S. military’s efforts to supplement diplomatic security in Libya.

Wood testified that he personally recommended that the Benghazi mission be closed, according to a recently released 46-page House Republican report probing the Benghazi attacks.

Page six of the report cites security concerns, including over 200 attacks in Libya, 50 of which took place in Benghazi, including against the U.S. mission there. One of those attacks even was carried out by disgruntled Libyan contract guards hired by the U.S. who allegedly threw a small improvised explosive device over the perimeter wall.

States the Republican report: “These developments caused Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood, who led the U.S. military’s efforts to supplement diplomatic security in Libya, to recommend that the State Department consider pulling out of Benghazi altogether.”

Continued the report: “Lieutenant Colonel Wood explained that after the withdrawal of these other organizations, ‘it was apparent to me that we were the last [Western]

This is the one who said “I’m sorry I can’t recall” a lot. She knows how to stonewall.

Truth: she is a radical marxist intent on destroying the foundation of this country. She has no principles or ethics.

“I wasn’t involved in the talking points process.... As I understand it, as I’ve been told, it was a typical interagency process where staff, including from the State Department, all participated, to try to come up with whatever was going to be made publicly available, and it was an intelligence product.”

“With all due respect,the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided to go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make?”—Hillary Clinton

Now we find out the Chief Lawyer for Hitlary, an old scumbucket with the abilities of Eric Holder, Cheryl Mills (according to Google: She currently serves as Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.)
attempted to strong arm the Libian Ambassador who replaced
Chris Stevens from providing evidence and testimony to House Member Chaffitz and his group that visited the scene afterwards.

Our Attorney General told congress truth is relative to your state of mind. I'm sure he and Hillary agree that they can tell no lies when they go into prevarication mode.

Please, please, please, stop sending our people to Washington. Make them stay home and work from their own states. We now officially have the means to work electronically. If we can vote electronically, lets make them work electronically. Break up the orgy that has become the cesspool known as the capital of the United States. Make the lobbyest visit us in our own states, we could use the money. Allow the state citizens to directly oversee our elected representatives. We send them to Washington, they become infested and spoiled. Maybe I should explain how I really feel, perhaps another time, but I have truly divorced politics because when I enter the fray, I need to disinfect myself. Such a souless bunch!

If either of the Clintons ever told the truth (by accident), they'd bury their mistake under a hundred lies. Can either tell the truth? No.

This is why CIA/State Dept’s indirect partners in mideast operations, the perpetrators of the attack, had to bring in mortars to eliminate the last resistance, so there was no need for backup firepower.

Those two men that died would want to recount the story of that night and how many times they called for support.

If they held out for 24 hours or more, it would start looking a little too obvious - even with the help of the propaganda machine - that Obama ordered the stand down of the FEST team.

Then politicians would completely hand over every part of lawmaking to lobbyists.

The bankster new world order would simply dictate whatever they wanted without having to have anyone even speaking to an empty Congress on C-Span.

They'd have video conferenced sessions, but would fake them. Members of Congress would simply vacation permanently and we'd be under direct control of what we thought was "the state", but it would really be international banking.

Of course she lied her ass off. It’s not like she is ever going to be prosecuted for it, so why wouldn’t she? Same goes for that pos Susan Rice and the other Obama flunkies

Didn’t I read at one time that she was watching the whole attack unfold in real time? She was probably rivited to the screen and thus, too busy to send help.
