In his new book, Blood Feud, journalist Edward Klein gets inside the dysfunctional, jealous relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama. Here, he explains what happened the night of the Benghazi attack.

Who are Klein’s sources on this book?
I’m not sure the Clintons are unhappy about this.
Forget the hip boots and chest waders, a wetsuit is needed to navigate this BS.
Hillary has a wet noodle for a backbone - she lied to keep power. Period.
This should be a new experience for Obama,
being thrown under the bus by an underling.
Like a porcupine, pro’ly
Very nice, Mr. Klein:
Now that Obama has run his two terms and it is Hillary’s turn, lo and behold ALL the Benghazi blame is to fall on Obama’s shoulders —nice.
Yeah, Hillary was just kicking and screaming to get the TRUFF out, yeah, I’ll bet.
The $100,000 she spent on Paki TV advertisements ASKING them to riot over the vid?
Yeah, she blanched at that, too, yeah, didn’t want to do it.
Hillary admits she has no conscience, dignity or sense of honor and is willing to say or do anything to save her political future, even if that means COMMITTING PERJURY IN FRONT OF CONGRESS.
Let's not forget SHE WAS KICKED OFF THE WATERGATE COMMISSION FOR LYING AND OTHER UNETHICAL BEHAVIOR!!!!
In the next installment, we’ll read how Obama ordered Hillary over her strenuous objections to tell the families of those killed that the US government would arrest the video maker and throw him in jail.
In the end Hillary still lied about it. She carried the ball for Obama, like Goebbels did for Hitler when he lied to the German people.
This narrative is intended to set up Hillary’s defense for the upcoming Benghazi hearings.
Notice it is not state dept sources that are quoted...it’s her lawyer.
I don’t believe a word of that.
1. Hillary didn’t know until 10:00pm? Bull stuff!
2. She disagrees with the party line here? Once again, bull stuff! She isn’t made to look any better by admitting it was terrorism. Recall, she had been begged for months to up the security. If this was terrorism, she would look like the buffoon who refused Steven’s frantic requests.
3. She called Bill Clinton? OMG, what is this ass hat clown trying to sell us here? A cart full of Bull stuff!!
He isn’t just trying to sell us Hillary’s attempt to gain clarity from the best politician ever. (Remember: She was the conniving beatch behind Bill. She covered up his skirt chasing, hired P.I.s, and had them intimidated or worse. She got him on 60 minutes and played the ‘stand by her man’ routine. She covered for him after Monica Blewhimsky. IMO, she covered for him with Vince Foster in Fort Marcy Park.
She called him after the embassy attack? Good grief. She knows that this guy is a Democrat blow up party favor, better than anyone else. So what’s this about?
It shows Hillary and Bill to still be intimate loving confidants, the marriage still burning bright. This is just more fluff for the voters.
Hopefully this and other fluffers can get the public aroused at just the right moment.
Okay, I do believe on word.
“Hillary.” She’s hip deep in Bull Stuff.
We all knew Hillary had no scruples, morals, or standards but this proves it for all to see. She’d lie to cover for Obama and save her butt from Democrat scorn and a run for president.
I don’t see how she has gained anything. Everybody is disgusted with her about something.
This is all complete crap! How does Hillary explain the Tweets from the Cairo embassy apologizing for the video 12+ hours before Benghazi was attacked?
I don’t believe one word of it either. It isn’t the story Hillary told in her own book, Hard Choices. The story she told there didn’t satisfy anybody & hasn’t helped Hillary one iota. So they used Klein to go with yet another iteration, hoping *this* one finally exonerates Hillary & clears the way for her next run at the WH. Won’t work. If this was the truth, she needed to tell it in Hard Choices. It isn’t the truth, however, & few will take it seriously.
Until one of Hillary’s folks openly drop a dime, this means nothing.
Why did Hillary and Obama use American taxpayer provided funds, facilities, personnel and equipment to overthrow the government of Libya?
I think the Benghazi committee has a lot of people really scared.
Edward Klein some classic misdirection with his hands.
Juicy details if true.
...the dysfunctional, jealous relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama.
Hogwash, hillary is getting so desperate, she’ll use anything to separate herself from 0 and bubba is helping.
I noticed that the left only needs a story to justify their allegiance to either Clinton. This was a story.
That will do.
It’s sad, but it’s the truth. When Clinton was in all that trouble, I noticed he could say 4+4=11 and his followers would trash anyone who didn’t accept it as the gospel.
That will suffice here IMO.
I hope all this happy talk about low book sales translates into low support, but I’m not buying it.
You make a good point. Take Obama. Nothing he says has to make sense or have any basis in fact or reality. If the MSM/Dems can repeat his talking points as justification for anything he wants to do, they will do so.
Many MSMers feel that way about Hillary. They are willing to accept any Benghazi tale/justification so long as it lets her off the hook. They just want her to run & win, & be the POTUS they had hoped Obama would be. So indeed they will embrace any explanation that fits the bill.
Otoh, Hillary looks old & tired, & at times unwell. She was a horrible campaigner in ‘08, & her book tour has been a disaster. If she keeps talking, she’s going to rival Biden for gaffes. Plus face it, she is just not that likeable. Her favorable ratings have been dropping ever since she stepper out into the spotlight. All people have to do is see her & they like her less.
I don’t think she’ll be the ‘16 Dem nominee. Too much can happen between now & then. The Dems will be in ruthless mode, trying to retain the WH. Unless Hillary looks invincible, they’ll look for a strong alternative. By ‘16, it’s likely one will have emerged. ‘08 was Hillary’s time, & she missed it. She is not going to be POTUS. That is my prediction, & has been for a while. I’m sticking to it.
It could to either way. It’s too early for me to make a solid prediction, but I’ve seen these people look down and out before and then there was new life.
If you would have asked me, I would never have thought she could carpet bag her way into the New York Senate seat. It’s hard to predict what the Left will do.
Could you have seen them going for the Kenyan? You could be right. We’ll have to wait and see.
Thanks for the comments.
You’re right. It’s too early to make definite predictions. So much can happen. I just get a very strong sense Hillary cannot make it this time around. If she were shaping up, (1) the book tour would have been a sharper, more professional outing [as opposed to an exploding cigar] and (2) sales for Hard Choices wouldn’t be dropping like a rock through water. She just exudes ‘has been’, & nothing she does seems to help. Why would it get any better from here?
I don’t think Klein’s book will help her either. His scenario sounds almost cartoonishly silly. Who fed him these lines I don’t know—I realize it was supposed to be a Hillary legal person. But why would a Clinton person shoot her in the foot? She can’t tell one story in Hard Choices & authorize one of her confidants to tell an entirely different story to Klein. It only makes her look sleazily dishonest.
Otoh, you are SO right about her senate run, & about the community organizer. I didn’t think NY would go for the carpetbagger either. She knew nothing about NY at the time. This was demonstrated. I really imagined she would lose, & I was wrong.
Ditto Obama. He had NOTHING on his resume to recommend him to the most powerful job on the planet. I know America is dumbed down, but I couldn’t imagine they were that stupid. So I was wrong on that score too.
With that track record, I guess my prognostications aren’t worth much. But I really, really don’t think this is Hillary’s time. As I mentioned, her favorables drop like flies when she appears in public. They’ve never risen unless she was out of the limelight. When she starts speaking in public, people don’t like what they hear. Even DU, that hotbed of leftism, has shifted from Hillary to the fake Indian from MA, E. Warren (per a report posted on FR). I just can’t see it getting better for Hillary. People don’t vote for a POTUS they don’t like, & too few people really like her. Fwiw.
I appreciate the additional comments. We’ll see. You could be right on. I’m just not sure yet.
