Skip to comments.Clinton’s role in the Benghazi fiasco and blame-shifting
Posted on 05/21/2013 8:58:14 AM PDT by don-o
Passing the buck is nothing new in government. But when four Americans are dead, the secretary testified to a certain version of events to Congress, and an independent report was allegedly not independent, we are in different territory. The gross incompetence that led up to the deaths of four Americans is inexcusable, but so was the mismanagement of the State Department. Under Clinton, critical memos never reached the secretary and the steps taken after the fact look a lot like an all-out effort to shield her from blame. Isnt it time to get her back under oath?

Under oath Hillary will develop amnesia. I doubt she will remember her name.
“Oath” means nothing to her. “What difference does it make?”
She’ll lie anyway.
Isnt it time to get her back under oath?
As we’ve seen before, she could care less about being under oath. She’s been lying her entire life.
The first time conveniently moved her to the back of the line so she had the foundations and time to build the lies that wouldn't be contradicted by the others
Guess this is the best we can expect fro Wa Po but she lost me in the first sentence.
Four Americans multiplied were killed yesterday, More in Boston, on the Helicopter wherein the SEAL team were killed. What difference does it make? Even H! is winning on this.
They are the Embassy staff. US representatives in Libya. The Libyans know this, so do AQ, MB, Egypt, Syria and a few Americans with a semblance of basic knowledge of our government and it’s place in the world.
Foreigners are confused and encouraged by our govt’s stupidity on this and the American electorate is confused that this story won’t go away, though H! wants it to. They thought she was more powerful than that.
She is not. They haven’t fundamentally transformed America yet, and it was the Embassy staff. When will the journalists including Hannity get a clue and call it what it is and bring some proper order onto this story.
Anyone wanting on or off this ping list, please advise.
More and more...I get the sense that Benghazi will doom any chance that Hillary has for the WH in 2016...right now, I make it even money that she won't even run..
it has been noted on a number of occasions that the hildahag will walk out of meetings to avoid culpability. Aside from that, the smartest woman on earth won't remember squat. I bet she remembers her head injury that kept her from testifying to congress early on but won't recall anything having to do with Benghazi up to that date.
The threat of a subpoena will probably cause another “stroke” Which will keep hildebeast incapacitated until Iowa where she will have a miraculous cure on a par with Fatima in 1917..
I had a horrible thought this morning. What if Hillary flips? Sounds crazy, I know, but there’s a lot of upside for her.
Wow! I mean just WOW!
The devil (0) made her do it!
Well basically it boils down to this: Hillary accidentally shoots herself in the foot and to hide her mistake she chops off her foot. But she gets an infection and faces a terminal death. Man I should write Hillary poems just like that other Benghazi whistleblower dude.
Don't get too excited - it's not the WaPo's editorial board, just their token conservative (Jennifer Rubin).
That said, I'm with Rubin in this -- I too can't wait to see Hillary put under oath.
But Issa can't be too hasty, because a lot of groundwork has to be done before that ... to wit, whistleblowers and other witnesses must be deposed first.
Once Issa has loads of sworn testimony from these people, then it will be time to put Hillary in the hot seat.
Hillary will have a very hard time saying "I don't remember," under oath and on camera, to the dozens and dozens of detailed statements and questions that will inevitably have been generated by the Benghazi witnesses in their depositions.
Oh, she will try to be evasive; but the jig will be up. Even the fawning MSM will not be able to deem her denials or her empty theatrics credible anymore.
... Gunrunning from Libya into Syria is a violation of international law. Furthermore, one has to ask how arming rebels in Syria would serve Americas interests because it doesnt. Just like it didnt serve Americas interest in Egypt or Libya where the Muslim Brotherhood has steadily gotten or is gaining power. Arms running would also explain why the Obama-Clinton regime gave stand-down orders and denied providing any help to Americans in peril.
That's exactly why they're arming rebels in Syria.
Just remember that The Won was raised from his mother's knee to hate freedom, to hate Western Civilization, and most of all to hate this country - if you remember all that, everything he and his administration do makes perfect sense.
She’ll hit her head again.
