Clinton Says Those Watching Bin Laden Death 'Couldn't Breathe for 35 Minutes'
ABC OTUS News ^ | 11April2012 | Dana Hughes

Posted on 04/11/2012 5:33:58 AM PDT by qaz123

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.

David Blaine set a record for holding his breath at a little over 17 minutes.

Peter Colat, a Swiss freediver, held his breath underwater for 19 minutes and 21 seconds

According to Reference.com....Unconsciousness can take up to 3 minutes, after that the brain is oxygen deprived and the person will start to suffocate rapidly, death will occur within 6 minutes.

Seems like some high level folks should be in the Guiness Book of World Records or their positions should have been vacated due to some unforeseen circumstances....Too Bad

Since the democrat brain doesn’t actually function, it does not actually require oxygen.

Her brain was damaged long before holding her breath for 35 minutes. She should try this exercise on a daily basis constantly stiving to hold her breath for hours.

Wait, I thought the final version was that no one was actually watching live.

She’s a Democrat. Democrats have a license to lie, and it is racist to question their lies.

Yes, Hillary....and once there was time in a situation room where your husband viewed overheads of a strike team that could have invaded a remote desert location and easily killed Bin Laden. Your husband held his breath then, too...

Breathing provides oxygen to the brain. You should try it along with all the other simps in the White House...

“I could hardly breathe. Gulping for air, I started crying and yelling at him, ‘What do you mean? What are you saying? Why did you lie to me?’ I was furious and getting more so by the second. He just stood there saying over and over again, ‘I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. I was trying to protect you and Chelsea.’”

And exactly how long was she unable to breathe after watching the video of her husband being serviced in the oval office by an Intern named Monica?? Or what about all the other Women, did that take your breath away Hillary?? What a sorry excuse for a piece of crap.

Ya, and Hillary also couldn’t breathe when she learned her husband had lied to her about the Monica Lewinsky case.

The so-called smartest woman in the world, able to take those 3 a.m. phone calls and all that, really can’t handle crisis situations very well.

But she’s a good Democrat so it’s all good.

Speaking of Lewinsky, that was particularly crazy, because her husband had such a history of that kind of behavior. But she couldn’t believe the stories of Monica and Bill, so she went on TV and lectured us about the “vast right wing conspiracy”.

I have never heard her retract her comments when it turned out that the stories of Bill and Monica were true, and were not the result of any conspiracy to bring down her husband. But there again, a good Democrat doesn’t have to comment on such things. We’re supposed to forget all of that ever happened.

Silly hyperbole, Hillary.

If they didn't breathe for 30 minutes, they'd be dead, too.

Is it just me, or is this whole visual here really strange—a President and Cabinet glued to the TV watching a live operation like it were some reality show.

Give the order. Get the after action report. Is he dead? Good.

Maybe other Commander in Chiefs would have done the same, I dunno. Just seems strangely micromanaging to me.

I had nice dreams about Tora Bora before that..

If you explode a FAE bomb near a cave it creates a tremendous vacuum, and all the surrounding air (including the air from within the cave) gets sucked in to fill that vacuum.

So the air getting sucked out of a cave drags everything out with it. I pictured flying terrorist shooting out of the caves including Bin Laden with a giant “WTF??” expression on his face
