Report: Clinton defends response to Benghazi
Associated Press ^ | May 30, 2014 1:30 PM EDT | Ken Thomas and Philip Elliott

Posted on 05/30/2014 11:55:17 AM PDT by Olog-hai

Hillary Rodham Clinton defended her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, writing in her new book that she will “not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans.”

Clinton’s upcoming book, “Hard Choices,” is both a rebuke to Republicans who have seized upon the terrorist attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, and a roadmap for Democrats to defend the Obama administration’s reaction to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. Should Clinton run for president in 2016, her four years as secretary of state—including the deaths in Benghazi and the follow-up inquests—could be a driving factor in that campaign. …

The only thing you have to know to be certain that Hillary is hiding something is Lanny Davis is leading the cover team.

“....she will “not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans.”

.
What she really means to say is that she is hiding her culpability behind the bodies of four murdered Americans who might have survived had she shown responsible leadership.

If she could be so callous with the lives of four Americans, how much more uncaring will she be with the lives of 300 million Americans if she were, God forbid, POTUS?

The secretary of state's name is routinely attached to State Department correspondence but often is not consulted on it.

I know when I would correspond that I would routinely add the CEO's name without consulting him. That's how all organizations work. Not!

She never used to be anything either. Just like the current occupant of the White House, her resume is short on substance and long on bullsh!t.

Most people don't realize that Starr report footnotes #220 details that Bill received oral-ANAL sex from Monica:

I'm pretty sure Hillary wants ALL of you to remind her of that on a rope line during her campaign.

This statement is the end of her plan to be president of the USA. When Trey Gordy gets done with the mess—she will be seen as a fool—or worse—a criminal incompetent.

There might not be four dead Americans except for you and your boss, Hillary.

You should be part of the orange jumpsuit crowd.

This is FACT and not conspiracy but yet the 0bots and the 0bot media ignore it. The 0bot culture has become such an evil presence, party loyalty and power is most important above all. They have become ideological fanatics on par with the 30's German Nazi party. I just hope and pray it ends better for this nation.

This is Clintonian horse blank, to get a story out, then if anybody brings it up in the future, the Clinton way is to say, we’ve covered this story already, this is old news, let’s move on, etc.

So they are getting a story out, then will say it’s old news if anybody brings up Benghazi down the road.

“They have become ideological fanatics on par with the 30’s German Nazi party.”

That is something that can’t be repeated enough.

This psycho skank will start a full blown WWIII to get the power of the presidency.

...she will be seen as a fool...

But she will be portrayed as a strong and courageous woman, standing up to the sexist pig republican party leaders. And of course we MUST elect her to POTUS. "A great and historic moment in America's long and proud tradition...blah, blah, blah."

You can just picture the way MSM will handle this.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton defended her response to the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, writing in her new book that she will “not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans.” "

She can't talk about the mushroom cloud cover-up of the 4,000 dead in Iraq because she was a participant.

“not be part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans.”

She had no compunction about using their corpses for a photo op, though, did she? Neither did her moral scruples stop her from standing before their coffins and bald-face lying to Ty Woods' father.



As vile and wretched as the parade of 'Rat politicians has been in my lifetime none can approach the sheer malignant evil that is Hillary Rodham Clinton.

FU Hillary!

When she cackled “Whether it was a video or two guys walking at night deciding to go kill some Americans...” (paraphrased) she was dissing the dead.

It should be used by the GOP TODAY against her in ad after ad after ad. Then, at the end of the ad, show her political worthless ass to all as she stands somber by the four dead in Benghazi for a photo op.

Decent real Americans would be appalled. Those libs that aren’t should be forced to defend her until their heads explode.

It is impossible that this is “her” book. She is brain-damaged, never can remember anything and is a drunk.

THE FOREIGNER and MRS. WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE circle the wagons reaction to the BENGHAZI DISASTER shows without a doubt they are out to DESTROY THIS COUNTRY not DEFEND HER. The American people made a huge mistake VOTING FOR SOMEONE BECAUSE HE’S BLACK. Let’s hope we now don’t VOTE FOR SOMEONE BECAUSE THEIR A WOMAN.
