Hillary gets tossed under the bus to provide cover for Biden, White House
Michelle Malkin ^ | October 12, 2012 | Doug Powers

Posted on 10/13/2012 3:11:45 PM PDT by Upstate NY Guy

At last night’s debate, Joe Biden said “we weren’t told” that the Benghazi consulate had requested additional security in the days leading up to the attack on the 9/11 anniversary. Today the White House is making sure everybody realizes that by “we,” Biden was referring only to the White House and not the administration as a whole. The ball of blame has been overhead smashed back to Hillary Clinton’s side of the court.

“These kinds of issues are handled in the State Department by security officials,” White House spokesman Jay Carney said during Friday’s press briefing.

Security matters “are decided at the State Department,” he said…

And there goes Hillary under the bus. In other words, “the buck stops here with her.”

Will Bill stand by idly and watch Hillary get run over by the Obama/Biden campaign bus?

Didn’t hillary just come out and “tell us” we MUST ACCEPT the “arab spring”, even if it is dangerous?

I see a two sided mouth here talking and I don’t like it ONE BIT!

i’m betting Bill is negotiating a deal - Hillary keeps quiet, Bill will continue campaigning - if Obama keeps Hill out of legal jeopardy.

Left out of the deal will be what is in the best interests of the American people and justice for the murdered Ambassador and the seals.

Good question.

I thought that was the most despicable moment of the debates so far. Just when I think they can’t stoop any lower, they surprise me.

Sorry, but Hillary gets thrown nowhere she doesn’t deserve to land.

She built this. She needs to be pointed out by Republicans, but they give her a pass, while aiming LOW at Rice and aiming HIGH at Obama, who has no day to day responsibility to run Hillary’s ship for her.

Take them as they come. Hillary is up. Take her down.

State Department “Security Officials” do not authorize the deployment of military forces. (Read: Marines to secure an AMEMB) Only the CINC (Read: POTUS) has the constitutional authority for that deployment.

Yes she did!
Another example of where Hillary finished her political career by being Zero’s SOS. I still say it was a very stupid decision on her part. She should have stayed in the Senate. She could have Reid’s job. If she had indicated she wanted it, the Senate Rats would have fallen over themselves giving it to her. She could have sat in the Senate, maybe even delivered a budget! And later ride to the Rat rescue as the alternative to Zero. Now she is a Zero minion whether she wants that label or not and shares in his foreign policy failures. Also the SOS job requires some management ability.

Another thing the SOS does make decisions such as security manning for the embassies, she screwed that up! That can’t be hidden!

Direct link to interview:

http://d24edc7kaf4agn.cloudfront.net/3650/rhiDownloadVariant/10-12-col-hunt.mp3?rhihttphost=audio.wrko.com

Col. David Hunt explains how at least 12 command centers got near INSTANTANEOUS info when the Benghazi consulate was attacked, including a manned WH situation room. Hundreds of government personnel listened/watched for 6 hours in real time as the attack ensued. Hunt says it is standard operating procedure when an embassy is attacked.

WH gave no military order to intervene.

They knew almost immediately that there was NO protest, NO mob-— just a surgical jihad operation viewed instantaneously in real time by governmental operations centers all over the world, including CIA, Dept of State and WH situation room, for over 6 hours.

In short, everyone knew, almost immediately, what happened in Benghazi was an act of war.

Hillary will probably win in the end — that is, win the Democratic presidential nomination over Joe Biden in 2016.

Although Hillary may be aging, she’s not losing her looks as fast as Joe is losing his marbles. He won’t last, and she will.

Well, of course HRC talks out of both sides of her mouth! However, who the devil cares in this case? I never thought I'd be happy that Bill Clinton is acting as, well, Bill Clinton, but I am. The Clintons are not going to rollover to protect Obama...for which we should be very grateful. Romney is going to win.

The attack started about 9:40 p.m. Libyan time. That would have been the middle of the day in the US. It wasn't even a 3:00 a.m. phone call.

I agree. But campaign season is not when liberals put national security first. Personally, I think Obama's inner circle is connected at the hip with the Egyptian new order. AND they in the religious sense want that blind religious criminal back home. I do believe there was chatter in how to make this happen. Hence an offensive video was created to create a crisis... How did Obama's General Dempsey know that that preacher in Florida had been contacted by the film makers?

IT is beyond bizarre for an American general to be making personal phone calls to any American requesting them to do anything.... THAT needs to be ferreted out as to who ordered this action.

Also....Who ordered THIS action?

Who ELSE could have directed Susan Rice to appear on 5-6 Sunday shows and have given her the talking points for her appearances? And this has been pointed out before by some commentators with experiential knowledge -— only the WH.

And that was AFTER the WH knew this was a premeditated, surgical strike -— no protest, no mob...an act of war.

Libya is 6 hours ahead of EST. The attack began about 9:30 PM Libyan time which would have only been 3:30 PM EST. Obama would have been golfing about that time - not in bed.

post 26...Randita pointed out the same thing. I tried to draw attention to her post in post 63, same thread.

I haven’t confirmed the time, but this fact, if true, has gotten lost in the web of lies.

AND, it’s not a minor point because Obama should have been sitting in the situation room. If not, one of his surrogate’s was-—and the WH situation room, and other agencies, was obligated to give him frequent updates.

Hours before Obama would have gone to bed at 11pm.

As Eric Nordstrom told the House oversight committee this week, "the Taliban is inside the building."

Obama may be the front man for Jarrett, but he also might be the Chairman (aka Caliph) and Jarrett might be the Chief Operating Officer.

Either way, a statement that "the Taliban is inside the building" is a major disclosure.

If Obama throws Hillary Clinton "under the bus," President Obama risks running afoul of the most powerful contingent of the Democratic Party, the New York City area group. The resulting infighting could be ugly, to say the least.

Regarding those Hearings: Do any of you feel that maybe, just maybe all of those folks who testified was/are anxious to start talking. All of them may be just sick and tired of the Obama Adminstrations and it's pack of liars.

Unless the right questions are asked they can't say anything. It's like they are waiting for that one questions. Especially Gen. Wood.

There are so many critical moving parts to this atrocity, but that is one of my priority questions also. I have not seen an answer or a timeline to that point, but I intend to do some research.
