Hillary's Treason.

Hillary might have committed her own treason during the attack.

Hillary was the first to use the "Youtube video" excuse.

10:38-39 p.m., 9/11/12. @StateDept tweets: " #SecClinton: I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. http://state.gov #Libya" and "#SecClinton: We have confirmed one @StateDept officer was killed in #Libya. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss." Hillary Clinton issues a statement, saying, "I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack." She adds: "Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."

That was when Hillary herself took over the Cairo embassy Twitter account and personally posted. (anyone who thinks she wasn't directing the earlier Tweets is smoking something) That was at 10:38 PM Eastern Time. That would have been 4:38 AM Sept. 13th in Benghazi. About the time Woods and Doherty were making their last stand.

Maybe “bloomerboy” should have had a son over there, perhaps he would be singing a different tune....OH wait, the “elite” don’t go into dangerous places. My bad!

If he is defending Hitlary, both she and he are guilty of something.

“What the hell does he know about it.’

Who knows, but he knows enough that he sure as hell used the Boston bombing to push the “spontaneous” lie that being there are no or very little preparations for the terrorist attacks.

Let’s not forget it was Bloomberg that was as happy as he could be after the attempted car bombing in NYC in 2010.

He was happy because the dems talking points before the attempted bombing comparing the TEA Party to Tim McVeigh matched the bomb used, a fertilizer bomb, so that proved it just had to be the TEA Party.

Since it turned out to be a muslim, I guess those terrorist are so in tune with the news they just picked up on the dems talking points comparing the TEA Party to Tim McVeigh and then “spontaneously” carried out the attack.

Yep, that’s what happened, just ask Bloomberg.

It was spontaneous.

"both she and Jeb Bush would be “quality” presidential choices"

The elite have decided who will be our no-choice "choices" for 2016.
