Kudlow: Obama to Pin Libya on Hillary Clinton?
CNBC ^ | 12 October 2012 | Lee Brodie

Posted on 10/13/2012 3:29:47 PM PDT by AFPhys


According to proprietary reporting from Ed Klein, Bill Clinton is concerned that Barack Obama is about to throw Hillary Clinton under the bus.

On The Kudlow Report, Klein said that President Clinton is reaching out to friends in the legal profession trying to figure out what his wife should do if she’s subpoenaed - called in to testify about events in Libya.

Joe Klein went on to say if you listen to the language used by Joe Biden in the debate closely – Bill Clinton's move may be more than simply precautionary.

“Biden said something like we were unaware – nobody told us. What does that say? The only person who did know is Hillary Clinton,” explained Klein.

“This is exactly what Bill Clinton was afraid of,” he added. The administration is going to pin the whole thing on Hillary. In recent days the administration has come under scrutiny for the way in which it released information about the Libya attacks to the American public.

On September 11, 2012 Ambassador, Christopher Stevens, and the other Americans were killed after Islamist gunmen attacked the U.S. consulate and a safe house refuge in Benghazi.

At the time the White House called the attack a spontaneous event; in response to a film that portrayed Muslim in an unflattering light.

Republicans charge the White House deliberately misled the people, knowing it was an act of terror. They say the decision was political, that Obama didn't want to disclose that al-Qadea had made a comeback in Libya.

In response to these charges, the White House has denied any intentional cover-up and counters that it has been completely transparent – providing its best intelligence on the attack, and then refining it as more information came to light.

The FBI is still investigating the attack. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also has named a State Department review panel to look into the security arrangements in Libya.

If Hillary does any “pillow talk” it won’t be Bill hearing it. She’ll be whispering into Huma’s ear.

It was speculated that Stephens brokered the initial deal. Now that Quadaffi was dead and the Brotherhood (who had visited the White House) was coming to power, now Obama did not want evidence out in the Libyan countryside for some investigative reporter to piece the story together. So after leading from behind with thousands of surface to air missiles Obama wants them back. Please, please, please note that this has not been proven. It was the view of Beck from military people whom he had spoken with that this is what happened. BUT, though is makes sense, IT HAS NOT SO BEEN PROVEN. I do not want to lead you astray!

I am sworn to secrecy. lol

I am beginning to connect the dots,and I think Beck is on the right trail.

So therefore it must have been a suicide mission./s

I can't believe Obama has not used that excuse yet.

My question is, ‘Was he sent into one of the most dangerous places on earth expressly to die’. That sounds insane, but as a pawn in the internicene warfare of Obama and Hillary, it begins to make sense. Who sent him to Benghazi and for what reason needs to be answered.

They also went through how information goes up from agencies such as embassies, up through the chain of command, to the daily NSA briefings that the president gets (whether he reads or hears them or not). Quite a nice, detailed, yet concise account of the process.

I really hope all this stuff stays out of the hands of pleaders and ink- and electron-stained wretches. It's relatively sensitive FOUO stuff, and its release would assist enemy analysts. We don't need this stuff falling out of government-office windows into the gutter.

“...Hitlery’s chances for pres election will be dashed by BenghaziGate.”


Please stop using “-Gate”. This thing stands alone, all by itself. BEN-GHAZI !! Any new Democratic scandal should be tagged “-GHAZI”.

RE: "‘Was [Ambassador Stevens] sent into one of the most dangerous places on earth expressly to die . . . Who sent him to Benghazi and for what reason needs to be answered."

This is bigger than a president skipping daily intel briefings.

After 1950s, the JFK assassination, the LBJ years, Carter, the Clinton years -- especially the Clinton years -- I'm for pushing the envelope on this one.

How it was allowed to happen rages on and on.. a better question is why was it allowed to happen.

In years past John Christopher Stevens, known as Chris, was described as "a 20-year Arabic-speaking veteran of the State Department who has been a senior diplomat in the Libyan capital, Tripoli, and had postings in Damascus, Cairo and other Middle Eastern locales . . . [he has] a broad knowledge of the Arab world . . . [and] has a good deal of cross-cultural comfort . . . [professionally he] has an unflappable, but not nerdy personality. . . He listens to people. He’s the quintessential diplomat."

Seems to me that Stevens surely knew a lot given his contacts and savvy. Did he know too much? Was he threatening to tell all about how radical Islam's successes were greater than one would expect in an "Arab Spring" -- more like an Arab Sprint for the Muslim Brotherhood.

Was he denied security sure that Al Qaeda would kill him and all around him.. was Obama and/or the Clintons the beacon this time that guided the victims, Stevens and three others, to their deaths? Ron Brown, a man who knew too much and was going to talk was aboard an Air Force plane with many others when it was guided into a hillside by a beacon, some say.

The Sons of Liberty suggested that Ambassador Stevens could be another Ron Brown.. now it occurs to me that Obama and /or the Clintons are going to need a Vince Foster to void the current controversy. It drags on and on.

Someone has to commit "suicide" -- and days later a note discovered stating why; the victim's note will say that he could no longer live with being the sole person responsible for the deaths of the Ambassador and the three other Americans in Benghazi -- and the Obamas are wonderful, etc., etc., etc.

With the usual MSM assistance the whole matter will be forgotten by the following Tuesday afternoon about tea time -- and the Muslim Brotherhood keeps on a sprintin' until Obama is out of office.

did u happen to see the mother of one of the 4 men killed on Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox last night? ms. Smith said her son Sean was head of information Ops but she said she didn’t know at the time that he was in Benghazi. She’s been putting together dots of what’s she’s learned and said a few startling things.

1) she believes the men all knew too much
2) she believes her son was trying to destroy info when he was found.
3) He was the first to die and that when they were done with him they came back and took out the others
4) there were actually at least 5, not 4 people at the consulate but one got away. She doesn’t know where or who the 5th one is
5) the men were all in different places at the time. It sounded like they were hunted and killed separately and then their bodies placed together in the end (not 100% sure I got that part right)
6) she said her son “loved that man” Obama

this terror event wasn’t just because they hate America. Remeber there were about 30000 American and British weapons being held at the consulate in Benghazi that were missing after the attack. evidence is being brought to light that supports that weapons were being handed over to the Libyan rebels who were al Qaeda. IMO So does Ms. Smiths info.

There are a few threads here on FR that are connecting the dots on what happened that day and digging around for more information to get to the truth of why the Ambassador and Sean Smith and the other men died. The disappearance of those weapons was the thing that has bothered me from the beginning.

It’s hard to believe and accept and honestly I am afraid to continue saying this but it’s important that this doesn’t get swept under the rug if this is the REAL reason for the coverup. I want everyone to know about this because if its true that the admin was supplying weapons to al qaeda, well...not good.

The admin would rather we focus on the fact that we were lied to but WHY were we lied to, WHAT were they covering up for, WHY was security denied those men and even lessened, WHO were the men that did this? Those are the questions the admin would rather we don’t ask or talk about amongst ourselves.

Good. If Hilary can’t squirm out of this, she will drag the whole thing down out of spite.

Isn't it interesting that someone who screwed over those who thought they were on her team, now gets shafted for being a team player on someone else's team? Karma is alive and well...

Thank you for the information. I do not have a TV but I can find video, etc. on the web.

FReepers cannot be the only ones remembering the Clintons and how 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, spoiled brats and their bratty ideological issue play rough, deadly rough

.. and even people (irritants) not directly competing with them get treated roughly; to wit,

Mrs. Smith said:

"I told Obama personally, I said, look, I had him for his first 17 years and then he went into the service, then you got him.

"And - I won't say it the way I said it - but I said you screwed up, you didn't do a good job, I lost my son. And they said, we'll get back to you. We - I promise, I promise you. I will get back to you."

She said to Obama, "you screwed up"?!

You don't talk that way to 1960s Marxist-Alinsky campus radical, spoiled brats or their bratty ideological issue; when Obama, et al told (warned?) her that they'd get back to her.. she can count on that!

President Clinton had Couple Arrested for Insulting Him!

Glenn and Patricia Mendoza were reacting to the 19 airmen killed in a Saudi Arabia suicide bombing (1996) and confronted President Clinton. The Chicago police and the Secret Service got back to the Mendozas immediately -- they were arrested -- and IIRC the IRS and DoJ kept getting back the them for years after that.

Yes I remeber. there is a long list of bodies left in the Clinton’s wake because they were in the way somehow. So I too am concerned for Mrs. smiths life but Sean was her only son and it appears that she doesn’t care what happens to her. She wants to know the truth and for all of us to know the truth.

god Bless this brave mother. I pray nothing happens to her. And how I wish that this story will make it out to the mainstream but I understand that most people would believe it is incredible. It’s just too outside of what the average news consumer is used to hearing. And I guess that says something about our culture in and of itself.

If you read her statements at Dover, she did specifically mention the movie and the movie, but she never explicitly ties the two together, If you read it closely, it is possible that she was under orders to say that.

When I watched the statement on 9/12, I got the impression that Hillary was being frog marched out to make a statement before Obama, forcing Hillary to be the one to lie. I thought that even before I knew it was a lie. I didn’t watch the Dover speeches. I was too disgusted with both Hillary and Obama by that time.

There was an article on Drudge, last night, about Hillary saying that Susan Rice was taking orders from the Obama administration, not the State Dept. The article editorialized that Rice was hoping to be the next Secretary of State. It was unclear to me whether Hillary had said that or it was the conclusion of the writer and I didn’t care enough to go back and read it again.

I missed that drudge article about Hitlery/Rice. I think that Benghazi effectively ends both of their careers, though, unless they can pull a giant Easter bunny out of the hat.

I do suspect that the weapons have something to do with everything that Stevens has been working on in Libya. What ? ? ? ...

I think Stephens was the intermediary for the repurchace of surface to air missles bought with $25 million dollars which Obama injected to the insurrectionists in Libya. Once Quadaffi was dead and the Muslim Brotherhood was taking charge, Obama did not want it to be found out that he (Obama via Stephens) had arranged for the arms purchace. So Stephens goes into Benghazi unprotected, al Quaeda kill the 4
Americans when the transfer was refused. Now in the immediate aftermath of the deal gone bad this lame excuse of a video was the best they could come up with.
