Hillary Clinton on Bin Laden Death: No One Watching 'Could Breathe for 35 Minutes'
ABC OTUS News ^ | April 11, 2012 | Dana Hughes

Posted on 04/10/2012 10:40:58 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY

Hillary Clinton spoke bluntly about Syria, North Korea and the death of Osama bin Laden at the U.S Naval Academy Tuesday, where as the keynote speaker at the close of a foreign policy conference she revealed that none of those watching the operation that killed the al Qaeda leader last year "could breathe for 30-35 minutes."

The Secretary of State prepared remarks on U.S. strategy in the Asia-Pacific region for the conference, but later took questions from the young future officers about any topic.

Though most of the evening focused on current global challenges to American foreign policy, the Secretary's most poignant words were about the man responsible for the largest loss of life on American soil in modern history - Osama bin Laden.

When a student asked Clinton to reflect on bin Laden's death and the process leading up to the Navy Seal mission that killed him last May, she began by talking about her time as a senator from New York during 9/11, and how many of her constituents were affected by the terror attack. She said even all those years ago, she didn't believe there wasn't "anybody in Pakistan who doesn't know where Bin Laden is."

As she gave a play-by-play account of the day Bin Laden was killed, she recalled how none of the officials in the room watching the operation, including President Obama, "could breathe for 30-35 minutes."

She is a pathological liar. I wouldn’t believe a word she says.

If only that were true half of my anxiety would be gone.

And as a US Senator, I’d bet she voted against every Weapons System that made that mission possible.

Well, Hill, if you and 0bambam would stop breathing for 30
minutes the world would be an incredibly safer place.

They were sick to death worrying how the Muslim Brotherhood was going to take this is why they couldn’t breath.

[She (Clinton) said even all those years ago, she didn't believe there wasn't “anybody in Pakistan who doesn't know where Bin Laden is.”]

Bin Laden moved into that compound in 2006. Senior U.S. officials knew where he was as far back as the Bush Administration and that the Saudis were paying Pakistan to keep him “on ice.” The State Department opposed killing or capturing Bin Laden without first working things out with Pakistan and the Saudis—who were afraid of who Bin Laden would implicate under interrogation. I think this information was leaked in 2008 to Obama who repeatedly said during the campaign that he would send U.S. forces into Pakistan to get Bin Laden.

Had her worthless husband dobe his job, there would not have been a need for this raid, nor would 9/11/01 have happened.

3,000 people haven’t been able to breathe for over ten years.

I have to stop now.

"...No One Watching 'Could Breathe for 35 Minutes..."

Geez. You would think 35 minutes without air would be enough to do the trick. No such luck. Asphyxiation can kill the undead, I guess.

Thirty-five minutes without breathing explains why the current administration is now brain dead.

If those folks did not breath for 30-45 minutes it is small wonder that they are all brain dead.

Heh, everyone is vying on this thread for the pithiest response, and yours ranks up there!

Well, if we don’t laugh, we’re gonna do something else.
