Skip to comments.Benghazi attack may cloud Clinton’s legacy

The fatal attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya last month has become a test of Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clintons leadership and a threat to her much-admired legacy as Americas top diplomat just a few months before she plans to step down.
Clinton was among the first Obama administration officials to publicly condemn the attack and mourn the deaths of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. But as the State Department has weathered Republican-led criticism that it misread warning signs before the Sept. 11 attack, Clinton has been far less visible.
Clinton will not appear at a Wednesday oversight hearing on the Libya attack, where House Republicans have said they will question the State Departments security preparations and the administrations account of the attack. The State Department will instead send a trusted career diplomat along with three security officials.
Ahead of the hearing, State Department officials provided new details about the attack while asserting that there had been no way to predict or prevent the sustained assault.

“Billy hates Barry and I think may get pissed enough to try to torpedo Barry’s re-election bid”
Barry knows this, that’s why the Bus will remained parked until Nov. 7th.
Why indeed. False flag op.

Which “legacy” she has so many? Maybe they are referring to the stolen FBI files, perhaps her cover up and lying about Lewinsky, possibly the cleaning up of Vince Fosters office after his suicide, or could it be......
Hillary Clinton Tells Grand Jury She Cannot Account for Records

Hillary Rodham Clinton testified for more than four hours today before a Federal grand jury investigating whether there has been obstruction of justice at the White House in the inquiry into the First Lady’s former Arkansas law firm.
With a nervous but determined smile, Mrs. Clinton emerged from the extensive grand jury session and declared, “I tried to be as helpful as I could in their investigation efforts.”
It’s been a long day,” she said after enduring the extraordinary event of the President’s wife being summoned to defend her veracity in the convoluted issue, known broadly as Whitewater, that has been intensifying in the opening weeks of a Presidential election year.
“I was glad to have the opportunity to tell the grand jury what I have been telling all of you,” she told a throng of reporters who had waited into the evening darkness for her to emerge from the Federal courthouse. “I do not know how the billing records came to be found where they were found, but I am pleased that they were found because they confirm what I have been saying,” she declared. She also confirmed that much of the questioning concerned the copies of long-sought billing records from her days at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Ark., that mysteriously turned up three weeks ago.
Hell, she’s got Vince Foster’s BLOOD on her hands......Monica had Bill’s Presigoo on her....NOTHING stops these Clintons because their supporters have NO MORALS!!
Clinton’s legacy was ruined on March 7, 2009 when she handed Sergei Lavrov a reset button and screwed up the translation.
It was downhill from there.
Cloud her legacy? Nope!!! She’ll still be remembered as a lying, incompetent, POS.
I just heard Andrea Mitchell report THIS MORNING, that the State Department is STILL claiming that the Ambassador died at the hospital after being tenderly treated by doctors.
Thank God for the internet. Lies are having trouble getting their boots on...
Excellent comparison. And do you know whether the Stevens family has spoken out in fury at his brutal murder? The poor Kopechnes kept their mouths shut, too.
The Buck stops with you, Hilly. Own it and resign.
BTW, how many in the Liberal Agenda Media are calling for Hilly to RESIGN?
Hillary looked very guilty when the Ambassador was killed.
Blood on one’s hands will make one feel guilty...even a Clinton. RESIGN NOW, HILLARY!!!
It was nice of those bad guys to clear out so quickly so the good guys could take over and be wonderful angels of mercy right?
