John Bolton: Benghazi Panel Needs to Question Hillary Clinton for 'Hours and Hours'
Newsmax ^ | 04 May 2014 | By Todd Beamon

Posted on 05/04/2014 12:55:53 PM PDT by kingattax

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton needs to provide "hours and hours" of private depositions if any House select committee is effective in uncovering what happened in the 2012 Benghazi deaths that killed four Americans, former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton said on Saturday.

"The public hearings that get so much attention are the last things that should happen," Bolton, who served in the George W. Bush White House, told Jeanine Pirro on her Fox News program. "We need former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton giving hours and hours of depositions before they put her back out in public testimony. That's the way to find out what happened.

"You can't get effective investigations done with members of Congress alternating — asking questions for five minutes — of somebody who's articulate and knows how to dodge questions," Bolton added. "What needs to happen are extensive, hour-after-hour depositions."

After a few hours, give her a break to the lounge. A few glasses of her favorite wine, then get her back on on the stand. See how the answers compare.

The attitude of this entire administration has been that they are not answerable to Congressional oversight.

I’d expect her to double down on their rejection of Constitutional checks and balances.

Let Ziva and Gibbs put her in the interrogation room while Ducky analyzes her. She'd last at the very best, 10 minutes before being arrested.

Easier just to break her the way the Vichy cops broke Eddie in “To Have and Have Not”

That's a true statement.

They act as if Articles 2 and 6 are the only things in the Constitution. And Article 6 only when it suits them.

Even good liars can be tripped up after giving a few hundred pages of depositions. It is damned hard to keep everything straight, and there is always that stray fact, that the liar didn’t know about. Once introduced, the liar has to start changing their story to fit the fact.

The question remains: Where are the Benghazi survivors?

...In March 2013, Chaffetz said he managed to speak with one of the fathers of the survivors but was told:

“Yes, this person is at the Bethesda Naval Hospital, but you will not be able to find him because the State Department changed his name on all his records."

Bolton is right on. This jackass Clinton will let the truth slip out if they really grill her. The communists Democratic part of the committee will provide cover but if the Republicans do not hit with hard questions and remarks we are finished.

She won’t get ‘softball’ questions from Trey Gowdy and she knows it ..... time for another bump on the head to avoid what will be a proper interrogation.

Lol. This from the ‘smartest’ woman ever. I imagine her memory will fail her once again, and no one will care. Quite the opposite, they will put this brain dead bat in the White House.

Ben Rhodes reveals the truth of the matter, in his memo, loud and clear.

Video vs terrorist attack was/IS/REMAINS the diversionary argument to bypass a spear into the heart of Obama/Hillary’s “BROADER MIDDLE EAST POLICY”, which was carrying out Hillary’s SMART POWER, with false appearances of NORMALIZATION— a new requirement, of anti-Bush texture, aka THE LIGHT FOOT PRINT, which was, in reality, CAUSING numerous terror attacks upon our military, and against our embassies all over the Middle East. Attacks that so far, were getting the brush off by the media from connecting them to BROADER MIDDLE EAST POLICY, NORMALIZATION, LIGHT FOOT PRINT, LACK OF SECURITY, ZERO CONTINGENCY, DEPLETED RESOURCES, MANPOWER and EQUIPMENT.

What the State Department and Obama White House did not want was to expose was their colossal, over all POLICY FAILURE, during the Obama campaign for re-election.

Rhodes let the cat out of the bag.

You can interrogate her for hours and hours but her only answer will be "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE? WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?"

Here she is 100 years ago saying guess what?

I am surprised that Jeff Eller was even able to function in this world. I mean, after someone wiped the drool from his mouth, I doubt that he could remember how to get home, or that you have to wear your underwear under your pants.

Post script, I just see that GM hired Eller for advise in crisis management. You just can't make this stuff up!

It sounds like the Democrat strategy may be to refused to name any members to the Select Committee so they can denounce it as just a partisan Republican attack. It could work since they have the press on their side.

It wouldn't have worked in 1973 when the Ervin Committee was set up to go after Nixon over Watergate, since the press also wanted to get Nixon.

On Chris Wallace's panel today, Brit Hume was pretty good, George Will was channeling his inner Neville Chamberlain and a Democrat woman (Harman?) tried to ridicule the whole investigation by bringing up other conspiracy theories.

Benghazi, Lies and Videotape

Posted By Nonie Darwish On May 2, 2014 @ 12:40 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Shocking White House emails released to the public Tuesday by government watchdog group Judicial Watch shed new light on the Obama administration’s brazen dishonesty with the public about the deadly Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya. Statements from top Obama adviser Ben Rhodes confirm what critics have long alleged: that the Obama administration’s to priority in the wake of the attack was not to seek justice for the fallen or confront the threat to our nation, but to lie to the public about the nature of the attack in order to improve President Obama’s image in an election year.

It is the tragedy of our times that that the US government advocated the video excuse as a justification for the attack on the US consulate in Benghazi — or even the attack on the US embassy in Cairo on 9/11/12. It should be common knowledge to Western governments by now that Islamic leadership habitually justifies Islamic terrorism as a reaction to some kind of injustice or offense perpetrated against Muslims. This happens all the time in the commission of terrorist attacks or after they have been perpetrated. But instead of exposing the Islamic lie as usual, America facilitated the terrorists’ excuses. This is not a bad deal for jihadists who are only too happy to see nations victimized by terror defend jihad on behalf of Muslims.

As a matter of fact, Muslims over many centuries have trained Coptic Christians and other Middle East oppressed minorities to blame themselves for Islamic jihad and to ignore the obvious Islamic jihad violence.

Since jihad against other nations is a violation of international law, Muslims have discovered that they have no choice but to lie about their motivation and religious obligation to engage in jihad. It is not the author of this article who is saying this about Muslim culture, but the Islamic law books themselves; they clearly state that Muslims are obliged to lie if it is for the benefit of Islam.

Lying to justify jihad comes to people of the Middle East naturally and without hesitation. Even I was guilty of protecting Islamic jihad at any cost when I used to be a young journalist in the Middle East years ago. Lying to protect Islam has thus developed into a virtue that comes naturally to Muslims after centuries of forced practice of the Sharia obligation — and most Muslims no longer realize the connection to Sharia nor realize that what they are saying is lying.

Muslims shamelessly justified 9/11 with incredible fabricated stories about oppression of Muslims, America’s foreign policy, the occupation, etc. But when such excuses were discredited, the Muslim leadership never gave up and, until today, continues the blame game. The versions range from how Arabs could not have accomplished such a sophisticated terror attack by airplanes (their favorite excuse) to how 9/11 was a Jewish conspiracy or that the American government itself is behind it, etc.

No one in the Bush administration was so reckless as to buy any of the Arab excuses. Even NYC mayor at the time, Rudy Guiliani, would not accept a $10 million donation for disaster relief from Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal after the prince suggested U.S. policies in the Middle East contributed to the September 11 attacks. America cannot afford to collaborate with Arab excuses over terrorism under any circumstances. If America accepts Islamic excuses for terror it is not just an invitation to more terror, but it is descending to the level of banana republics, which fool their own people into believing lies....

Obama is training the American mind to ignore their instincts, what they see, hear and believe about Islam.

The rest of the scandal

watch his other clips in YouTube - if John Boehner doesn’t appoint Trey Gowdy to head up the investigation - he should be charged with dereliction...and attempt to thwart the truth...we need to let the lily-livered Speaker of the House know we want Gowdy - not someone who will just go through the motions....as they have so far...
