Hillary Clinton: How could this happen in a country we helped liberate?
Washington Examiner ^ | September 12, 2012 | Charlie Spring

Posted on 09/12/2012 11:32:03 AM PDT by Zakeet

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted this morning that the attack on the U.S. embassy in Libya was "not easy" for Americans.

"Today many Americans are asking, indeed I asked myself, 'How could this happen? How could this happen in a country we helped liberate? In a city we helped save from destruction?'" Clinton asked.

Clinton explained that this question "reflects how confounding the world can be" and reminded Americans to be "clear-eyed in their grief."

Hillary Clinton should be “clear-eyed” in her job as Secretary of State. Fortunately, I hear she is leaving, whether Obama wins or not.

Well, this sure is thanks for the US spending billions to free Libya. They need to send Islamists back to the 14th century where they belong. These are just ignorant animals - Muzzlims, who should be Muzzled.

Hillary Clinton: "...the attack [in Libya] was orchestrated by a small and savage group, and not the larger people and government of the country."

Sound familiar?

...in early April 1993, the [Clinton] FBI proclaimed that...the [World Trade Center] bombing [of February 26, 1993] ...was the work of a loose group of fundamentalists with no ties to any state.

And now: "The FBI is expected to be actively involved in investigating the killings of U.S. personnel at the consulate in Benghazi, according to a senior law enforcement official."

Sadly, their findings will be the same as before. When does the kidnapping and hostage-taking start?

Maybe while she's in Russia, should could 'step down' into this local tourist attraction.

this was a country we turned over to the barbarians

Someone needs to ask her why we have an embassy in a non-country. Suppose some foreign diplomat was attacked in or around DC The first thing that would happen is dozens of local cops and EMT's on the scene in minutes. Then the feds would quickly take over and use the locals to control the scene. In civilized countries we do not allow diplomats to be carried around (dragged or not) by a mob.

Hillary Clinton is an idiot. The whole lot of the Democrats of today are idiots. Aligning themselves with prehistoric creatures that worship, and have worshipped a self serving pervert for a thousand plus years.

The Left has to believe they can rule, and use these creatures, or they wouldn’t be involved with them. Here’s that army the Left keeps talking about. Them, and the useful idiot Liberals they of the Left have been collecting along the way.

Just about any other time in our history the Secretary of State would be kicked out on his or her butt for what's going on. Obama's history tells us he was capable of tossing his granny under the bus...but:

the anointed won really and truly NEEDS Bill Clinton to keep his campaign on track. He can't dump Hillary/Huma.

If just about everything else was not turning brown and smelly I'd be laughing my tail off over Billary & Obama and Chicago teachers versus their mayor and our resident.

We have done all of this before..we put Pinochet into power with the help of someone that was at a party with Obama Sr in Hawaii (Nachmanoff) and we put Suharto into power with the help of Obama’s stepfather.

Oh, and let’s not forget the East Timor Massacre...revelations which were squelched in the Carter Admin with the help of Obama’s mentor ..Zbigniew Brzezinski

Getting smeared with the excrement of further participation in the disastrous Obama administration is not going to be good for her future presidential aspirations ... that being said, she hasn’t been looking so good lately ..... maybe a serious “illness” would force her to step down to spend time with her family?/s

What could go wrong on her watch? Shouldn’t this elephant-legged monstrosity of a human female be in a jail cell somewhere... permanently? Wait...maybe she’s preoccupied still looking for those Rose law firm records. No...wait...she “found” them after several years in her attic office in the White House. When asked about all this didn’t she testify “I can’t recall dozens (if not hundreds) of times? Such intellect. The “World’s smartest woman”??????? Bah...marxist loser hag.

Hillary saying this out loud is icing on the cake.

The timing couldn't be better. I dont remember these type of problems under Gaddafi after he struck a deal with the US, or even after Reagan dropped those bombs.

You reprehensible, addlepated COW!

I have no grief, I have intense ANGER and it's directed at you and your ilk and your lack of the same anger that I feel! I'm as angry as the day the USS Cole was attacked! I'm as angry as the day the WTC was attacked! Beirut Marine Barracks, Kenya Embassies...These people have chosen to be our enemies and fine words and "feel good joy-joy" diplomacy aren't going to change that one bit! Kill or be killed is their philosophy and until that gets through to your )@(&!#% brains it's going to be the same thing over and over again!

You and this administration are responsible for all of this. Chris Stevens himself is responsible for this. His death is his own doing as he pushed this BS through just like you and this administration did. This blood is on your hands.
You wanted a "peaceful" Islam to garner support for your actions.
You needed a "peaceful" Islam to justify your actions.

And even now you can't even bring your sorry asses to condemn theses fanatics for their actions which you helped bring about!

The families of rest of the people killed have my sympathy, not my grief.
I hope that they are just as angry at this administration as I am 'cause you MFers deserve every bit of anger directed your way!
