That's why Sean Smith e-mailed his friend saying "if we live through the day" and that was BEFORE the attack happened.
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 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.
