Bad Faith and Benghazi

Bad Faith and Benghazi: Hillary Clinton’s “whatever” defense falls flat. By Jonah Goldberg

Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

That was how then–Secretary of State Hillary Clinton famously brushed off the question of when she knew that the attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were, in fact, a terrorist assault and not a “protest” of an anti-Islam video that got out of hand.

It didn’t matter when she testified. The election had taken place and Obama had won handily. This whole sordid thing makes me ill.

Susan Rice Honored With ‘Great American’ Award Night Before Benghazi Hearing

by Debra Heine 8 May 2013

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Susan Rice was honored Tuesday night with the 2013 Louis E. Martin Great American Award.

The annual award, presented by The Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies, is given to “an exemplar of change, progress and willingness to take one for the team if circumstances require. (I may have made that last part up.)

Specifically, the organization is honoring Rice for ”her work in advancing U.S. interests, strengthening the world’s common security and prosperity, and promoting respect for human rights,” another press release states.

The evening gala and awards ceremony, which included Vice President Joe Biden, came the day before State Department whistleblowers testified at the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the terrorist attack that took place at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi last year.

State Dept Removed Terror, al-Qaida References in Benghazi Talking Points

Friday, 10 May 2013 08:25 AM

By Newsmax Wires

The Benghazi talking points at the center of the controversy surrounding the attacks on the U.S. compound in Libya were extensively rewritten by State Department staff to remove references to al-Qaida and terrorism, new reports show.

This contradicts claims from the White House that they were mostly written by the intelligence community.

The Benghazi talking points underwent 12 revisions and references to terror and terror groups deleted, according to ABC News.

The report indicates drafts first written entirely by the CIA were extensively edited and rewritten to become “boilerplate” points that were sent to Congress and to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice before she appeared on five talk shows the Sunday after the Sept. 11, 2012 attack.

The State Department made the majority of the edits.

Neither she nor the PO(TU)S are reliable when the phone rings at 3 A.M. or any other time for that matter.

“She knew everything except what difference it made.”

Very aptly put. She didn’t care what difference it made to Billy Dale either. Clintons will lie and nail anyone to the wall.

“what difference does it make”

Unbelievable that an experienced politician like Hillary would say that. It’s puzzling to me. Maybe she was desparate to stop the questioning. It worked for awhile, as the media praised her performance in the questioning.
