Skip to comments.Hillary blamed in another Benghazi scandal

Classified info at compound required U.S. Marine protection
Did the State Department under Hillary Clinton deliberately refuse to classify what has been described as sensitive information housed at the U.S. special mission in Benghazi?
The storage of any officially classified information in the compound would have required the deployment of the U.S. Marine Corps Embassy Security Group for protection.
Instead, external security at the facility was provided by unarmed local Libyan guards.
Armed members of the Martyrs of the February 17th Brigades served as the official quick-reaction force that worked within the compound. The Brigade is an offshoot of the Ansar Al Sharia terrorist organization that was implicated in the Benghazi attack.
The question of the security designation of documents and information contained at the Benghazi facility is newly prompted by a debate within the intelligence community as to why the materials were not officially classified. ...

Methinks there’s much much more to the Benghazi story then has seeped out so far.
I’m convinced that this whole episode involves weapons which were scheduled to go to the Syrian rebels and were preempted by al Qaeda backed factions which wanted the final say in where they were headed.
Quoting Hillary, “I’m not some stay-at-home-Tammy-Wynette kind of woman baking Benghazi cookies all day long.”
Don’t know if you have seen this article entitled “Operation Zero Footprint” but it is worth the read. It explains why there was no Marine Security in the compound because it was not “officially” a consulate.
It walks you through the whole sordid affair going on of illegal weapons transfer.
What responsible person in the position of President or Secretary of State would not order extra security at all foreign installations EVERY september 11?
Obama and Hillary were derict in their duty in relaxing security measures rather than providing the resources to increase security on 9/11 in 2012 as well as every other year.
We had a Private Hillary in boot camp.
Whoever the recruiter was that signed him up should have been put on KP peeling potatoes at the WH..,or shot or both. Sad work.
To use the word clueless is kind.. He lasted a few weeks,, but it was obvious, something just wasn’t right.
Oh, how I hoped we might never have to endure such feeble recruiting efforts as then.. But alas..
She has yet to testify under oath. Why?
"I can't recall."
Somehow, BUSH will get the blame again....
Yeah, I know.
Issa needs to get it in gear. Hell’s frozen over a few times already, I don’t know why he’s dragging his feet.
She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11. However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obamas voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run.
If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.
Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack, one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.
This adviser continued: Hillary told Obama, Mr. President, that story isnt credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11. But the president was adamant. He said, Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.
I think you are very likely correct. Here is how I look at it:
1. Libyan Rebels, some AL Qaeda associated.
2. Libyan weapons
3. Likely some American weapons
6. CIA contractors
7. Syrian Rebels (many Al Qaeda associated)
We need to find out who was doing what and what weapons were going to whom.
Oh just let all of this investigation to the GOP gang! They will surely get to the bottom of it! Anyway, what difference does it make if they don't? Sadly, that's how many, many Americans feel....
I point out that Trey Gowdy has been appointed chairman of a Special Committee to investigate Ben Gazi.
IIRC, Gowdy never lost a case as a SC prosecutor.
Or perhaps the attack was financed and coordinated by agents of Syria or Iran who masked their true affiliation from the hired jihadists.
True. When was that started, May?
My point is that it’s been almost two years and former SOS Clinton has yet to testify under oath.

"Nordstrom further testified in writing that Hillary Clinton waived security requirements for the Benghazi consulate despite high and critical threat levels in the six categories of security standards established under the Overseas Security Policy Board and the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999. The waiver can only be authorized by the Secretary of State, who cannot delegate that responsibility to someone else. If the Secretary of State did not waive these requirements, who did so by ordering occupancy of the facilities in Benghazi and Tripoli? Nordstrom wrote."
Captain Kendra Motz, Marine Corps spokesman, told Breitbart News on Friday that she wasn't aware that the Marine Corps had issued a formal statement, but that the information included in the Powerline report was correct."The Marine Corps does not have any Marines stationed at diplomatic installations in Libya."When asked if she knew of the existence of the document outlining the State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya, she stated:"I don't, and even if I did I couldn't disclose it to you because it puts people at risk."The 50 Marines that were rushed to Libya after the murder of Ambassador Stevens are not permanently stationed at any diplomatic installation in Libya.
Can’t believe her savior Bill is not coming to her rescue. He’s letting her take all the heat and Hussein takes none. Hussein must really have something on ole Billy the way he just lays back and takes it all.
When is the Benghazi hearing ever going to start?
Bill apparently feels it would hurt Hillary's 2016 prospects for him to attack Obama.
Klein says Hillary doesn't take Bill's advice. Bill advised her to lose weight, get plastic surgery, get a new warddrobe, and take speech lessons (to get rid of her shrillness). She hasn't done any of it.
> Did the State Department under Hillary Clinton deliberately refuse to classify what has been described as sensitive information housed at the U.S. special mission in Benghazi?
I wonder if Hitlery helped birth ISIS?
They were covering thier tracks to another fast and furious arabian style
That's why Sean Smith e-mailed his friend saying "if we live through the day" and that was BEFORE the attack happened.
Issa no longer has it. Trey Gowdy has it as the Chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi and his investigator is digging. Apparently he is finding more as the influx of attempted Benghazi CYA stories are on the uptick. That tells me that people are starting to get scared and are hoping their buddies in the media can run some interference.
They don’t know Gowdy.
Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn’t ‘switched sides in the War on Terror’ and sent $500 MILLION of weapons to al-Qaeda Sunni Muslims ...
US Ambassador Chris Stevens was to be captured and traded for ‘blind sheikh’ Omar Abdel-Rahman, who hatched the 1993 WTC bombing plot
The “Hillary” book has failed!!! Bye, Bye...Ms Hillary Clinton!!! Hello...Grandma Clinton!!!
“Issa needs to get it in gear. Hells frozen over a few times already, I dont know why hes dragging his feet”
My understanding is that Congress is only in session for 28 more days between now and the elections. I assume that means the same for investigative committees as well. Doesn’t seem much more dirt will be surfacing in the next 4 months.
Like you say, it does clash with other things we know.
I don't believe it either.
Whatever else though, Ed Klein is entertaining to listen to, and useful for (usually) tearing these people down.
I don't know for sure. I do know that Gowdy is very meticulous in preparing a case. That's the main reason he's never lost.
I seem to recall an article in which he said sometime in late July.
AFAIC, I'd rather he take his time and nail the SOBs good. Jail time, etc. Instead of glossing over anything.
I kinda disagree, but this is my take on this.
All half way intelligent Americans know that Hillary Clinton is a conniver and ruthless politician who will stop at nothing to get what she wants, ie the presidency. She lacks as much experience as the guy in office now. She’s 180 degrees opposite most Americans on the issues, but she has a strong left wing following.
So let’s give her the opportunity to win people like us on Free Republic over. Okay?
I think Obama may very well have called her to tell her to announce the Benghazi fiasco as a trumped up response to a video, and I fully have to imagine that Hillary did indeed say to him that people “would not find that credible, Mr. President”.
HERE’S THE REAL ISSUE. THE ONLY ISSUE.
HAD SHE REFUSED TO GO ALONE WITH THIS PLOY, AND RESIGNED HER OFFICE IN PROTEST, KNOWING FULL WELL THAT IT MIGHT JEOPARDIZE, NOT ONLY OBAMA’S RE-ELECTION BUT ALSO HER OWN POLITICAL FUTURE, SHE WOULD HAVE WON MY RESPECT, BECAUSE SHE WOULD NOT ONLY HAVE DONE THE RIGHT THING, BUT MORE SO, SHOW TREMENDOUS COURAGE.
But alas, she did neither. So, this only shows more so now, that she is not presidential timber.
You are actinglike this story is for REAL!!! It is NOT!! There is NO WAY that conversation went on!! It’s Ed Klein’s way of PROMTING Hillary’s “CENTRISTNESS”....kind of like truthiness....doesn’t exist.
It walks you through the whole sordid affair going on of illegal weapons transfer.
The reason there were no Marine guards or responsible American Diplomatic or Military presence was because Obama and Hillary were doing any one of a number of dirty deals, including some for personal enrichment or advancement, out of Benghazi that they would rather not have any official scrutiny.
Yep, worse than Fast and Furious and the IRS combined. Their nefarious plan backfired and the cover-up began.
Sounds a LOT more realistic in hindsight of his 5 for 1 of them trade!
I hear what you’re saying. Klein, implies that Hillary took a hit for Obama by agreeing that it was a video. In short, she’s loyal etc.
Maybe so, but has anyone asked her about this? If she denys it, then she was part of the cover up, if she admits this being true, then she basically reveals her cowardice.
All in all I don’t see how this helps her.
In 2008 Obama says to Hillary “I need you to help me get elected then serve as my secretary of state. Do that and I’ll help you be the next president.” So, Hillary did as she was asked.
In 2012 Obama says to Hillary “I need you to help me get re-elected. Do that and I’ll help you be the next president.” Hillary did as she was asked.
In 2014 Obama says to Elizabeth Warren “If you’ll run I’ll help you be the next president.”
Watch for more and more Benghazi info come out against Hillary. Don’t you know the Clintons’ heads are about to explode!
This is my post elsewhere many months prior to reading the Conservative Treehouse “Operation Zero Footprint”:
Perhaps if you stop to think, read the non-mainstream media and answer some speculative questions, you will know why the CIA, State Dept. and POTUS may be covering up.
1. How long was Chris Stevens an Ambassador before his death?
Hint - it was less than 1 year...
2. Who was Chris’s employer prior to his ambassadorship?
3. Where is the US Embassy in Libya?
Hint - it is not in Benghazi and the State Dept. does not acknowledge one in Benghazi on their website...
4. What was Chris’s assignment prior to his ambassadorship?
Hint - Benghazi has been described as the “Compton” of Libya because of the large number of terrorists / training camps...
5. How and from whom did those middle eastern “freedom fighters” (many terrorists / Al Quaeda) who engaged in overthrowing the governments in Egypt and Libya acquire some of their weapons and training?
6. What are Manpads and what is their single shot success rate at downing civilian and military aircraft?
Hint - man launched surface to air heat seeking missiles and it is greater than 50% on both...
7. How many Manpads are “unaccounted for”, i.e. not directly in the possession of the US?
8. Why did the terrorists delay their attack on the compound in Benghazi for 4 or more hours before completing the destruction?
Hint - perhaps they expected US support by air and had weapons highly effective on aircraft...
9. Who can answer the above questions if ALL those in the compound are murdered during the alleged “protest in response to a video”?
All good questions and right on target. But if it was a top-secret compartmented security operation with very few read into the program, I seriously doubt we will ever get the true answers to any of the questions.
Let Republicanprofessor know if you want on or off this ping list.
Bloody Hilly leads her Democrats.
Bloody Hilly leads her Democrats.
Bloody Hilly leads her Democrats!
Now ain’t that to damn bad?!!
(Joyously sung by Loyalists to THE CULT OF OBAMANATION, to a tune from the movie “South Pacific.”)
Don’t forget Chelsea Hubbell was a hostage taken and the Clintonistas clammed up and got in lockstep with rest of DNC-asses!!!
Why does it feel like Iran’s involved?
Monday morning quarterbacking??? Recommend you check out retired Admiral Lyons’ opinion on this matter!!!
Not Monday morning quarterbacking. Already read Admiral Lyons opinion. Agree with him. Here is a much more detailed account than Lyons that adds even more detail.
killed 2 birds with one stone, but the weapons ended up in Afghanistan and brought down the SEALS helo. That was an unacceptable trade.
Concussion, blood clot ,etc., ,,, it has been said that Killary was on a secret mission from Bahrain to IRAN and her plane crashed while her escort a Navy Seal Commander was killed???
