Skip to comments.Benghazi Report Is Another Stinging Blow For Hillary

Accountability: Early on, the White House had the country needlessly wondering whether Benghazi was terrorism at all. That is long since settled; now a report from Congress confirms where the blame lies.
From the beginning, President Obama launched a two-front war against those demanding full accountability on the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks in Libya that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other American personnel.
The first was to deny that it was a pre-conceived al-Qaida operation timed for a key date. If the public swallowed that, it would mean that there was nothing to blame anybody for.
The second front was to ask, in Hillary Clinton's words, "What difference does it make?" as the White House insisted it was making sure it would never happen again.
The House Armed Services Committee report on Benghazi makes it clear that avoidable loss of American life at the hands of Islamists, in a place and situation our personnel should never have been in, makes a lot of difference.
The report, by the way, makes no suggestion that there was any order for U.S. forces in Tripoli to "stand down," a straw man that the left has used to suggest that any and all critiques of the Obama administration on Benghazi are groundless.
It did, however, find that "In assessing military posture in anticipation of the September 11 anniversary, White House officials failed to comprehend or ignored the dramatically deteriorating security situation in Libya." That's consistent with a mind-set that believes the 2012 Obama re-election campaign's propaganda: that since Osama bin Laden is dead, so is al-Qaida.

LIV don't seem to care about the actions of their Dem leaders.
"Its not a scandal until I say its a scandal."
What difference at this point does it make.
Shillary fits right in with that crowd.
This is what the report actually says. This is the real story, not the Mediaite spin piece people were leaping to conclusions from earlier today.
It can’t be said any plainer than that and she hasn’t changed one whit since then.
Zeifman was a Democrat with integrity.
Hit her again. Hit her again. Harder. Harder
Yes it is, the enemedia and Rat sites are in full cover mode for her.
America won’t care. All she has to do is lie and promise free crap.
No evidence of malfeasance or cowardice or moral turpitude will affect Mrs. Bill’s campaign for the White House. If George Soros doesn’t want her to be President she won’t be President. If he does then she probably will be.
Hillary might have committed her own treason during the attack.

8:00 PM - Hillary Clinton calls Gregory Hicks.

And then Mrs. Bill Clinton became “The Most admired Woman in America.”
BTW, that shows just how much the values of Hilly’s America have changed.
No she has changed a lot.
Over the years she has perfected her craft.
She is walking evil.
As for Zeifman, there should be a statue of him in DC.
The last democrat with any integrity. An extinct species.
