Ed Klein: Bill Clinton Urging Hillary to Release Benghazi Documents That Would Exonerate Her, Destroy Obamas Re-Election Hopes
Posted on October 24, 2012 at 10:48pm by Jason Howerton
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered additional security for the U.S. mission in Benghazi ahead of the terrorist attack but the orders were never carried out, according to legal counsel to Clinton who spoke to best-selling author Ed Klein.
Those same sources also say former President Bill Clinton has been urging his wife to release official State Department documents that prove she called for additional security at the compound in Libya, which would almost certainly result in President Obama losing the election.
Appearing on TheBlazeTVs Wilkow! on Wednesday night, Klein told host Andrew Wilkow that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been having big fights for two or three weeks about the issue, according to his two sources on Clintons legal counsel.
While Bill Clinton wishes his wife would exonerate herself by releasing the documents that show she wasnt at fault for the tragic security failure in Libya, the secretary of state refuses to do so because she doesnt want to be viewed as a traitor to the Democratic party.
On Glenn Becks radio show earlier on Wednesday, Klein said his information comes from two very good sources.
Wilkow pointed out the obvious, that the Obamas and the Clintons have a very behind the scenes, tense relationship to put it lightly.
I said to you last night, and I think I stand corrected, that it seemed like Obama out-Clintoned the Clintons, Wilkow said. But Clinton seems to have gone along with all of this because he knew that Hillary would be exonerated in the end.
He then asked Klein whether he thought Clinton would resign over the Libya scandal and expose the truth.
No, the author said immediately. I cant imagine that she would resign. It would bring down the entire administration. [Obama] would lose the election and she would be essentially blamed by the left-wing base of the party.
She will not be tarred with the blame for bringing down this administration, Klein added.
In an exclusive interview with TheBlaze, Klein confirmed that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been engaging in heated discussions where the former president has urged his wife to release the documents that would exonerate her.
He reiterated that Clinton has refused to do so because she fears she would look like a Judas, or a traitor, in the administration and it might hurt her chances for a presidential nomination in 2016.
If the claims turn out to be true and Clinton did suggest more security be sent to Benghazi, it is appropriate to ask: why didnt it happen?
Klein said Clintons request for beefed up security would have to go through CIA special ops and or the Pentagon.
But none of that would happen with the National Security advisor to the president of the United States Tom Donnellan going to the president and saying, We want to send reinforcements to Libya because our ambassador is in jeopardy, Klein explained.
Ultimately, he indicated the ultimate authority would have been President Obama.
Wilkow and Klein also discussed what role Obamas closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett, played in the Benghazi cover-up.
By Obamas own admission, Klein said, the president never makes a big decision without first consulting with Jarrett.
We have to assume that Valerie Jarrett, who is also by the way hooked into the Chicago campaign that she was part of this cover-up in the White House.
He continued: The CIA got cables, the Department of Defense got cables, the NSA got cables during the attack on Benghazi, in addition to the emails that have since been made public. We know that there are cables that we havent seen yet, confirming the State Department cables that this was an al-Qaeda linked attack.
These new revelations, following Tuesday nights explosive report that 300 to 400 national security officials received emails detailing the Benghazi terrorist attack as it was happening, raise fresh questions about the truth behind the Benghazi attack.
The emails revealed that the Libyan radical Islamic group Ansar al-Sharia claimed responsibility for the attack just two hours after it began. White House officials told CBS News that an unmanned Predator drone was sent over the U.S. mission in Libya, providing Washington with a live feed to the chaos that unfolded.
I’d like you to be wrong, but the name Ed Klein brings back memories...
The true ‘money’ sentence in this is this:
“While Bill Clinton wishes his wife would exonerate herself by releasing the documents that show she wasnt at fault for the tragic security failure in Libya, the secretary of state refuses to do so because she doesnt want to be viewed as a traitor to the Democratic party.”
Please note that Hillary did not care a whit about being a traitor to the country, only to the Democrat party. Let that sink in for a bit.
Sad but true.
Agree, she needs to speak up, be heard, and be strong about it. Now.
Yep, good idea, hope he does it.
she should listen to bill
Hopefully she will.
>>Hillary already sold out to Obama in exchange for him retiring her 2008 campaign debt and it is doubtful she would cross him at this point.
That does not stop her from “leaking” documents through an anonymous source.
As best as I can tell the below is the first thread on the terrorist attack on Obama’s mission in Benghazi, Libya, September 11, 2012, posted on FR. Hillary gave a statement and she is the first one I have found officially that attributed the terrorist attack to some inflammatory material posted on the Internet.
Statement by Secretary Clinton on the Attack in Benghazi
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
September 11, 2012
I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.
This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his governments full cooperation.
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.
In light of the events of today, the United States government is working with partner countries around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens worldwide.
Forget the fact that I personally want to see Obama’s belongings
loaded up into a moving van, this is a critical issue far outside
of the election, imho.
Mrs. Clinton needs to speak up now, loudly, she can be shrill and cackle, I don’t care,
whatever it takes to get the message out now, that’s her job and she has to step
up to the plate.
Why does Klein think the increase in security would be slowed by the CIA or the Pentagon? They jump when the administration says jump.
I don’t really believe this. Hillary already fell on the sword in return for not having to pay her campaign costs out-of-pocket. This deal is worth millions of dollars to her personally and I’m really doubting that she would undo this deal at this point. The docs are probably classified with a declassification date after her campaign costs are paid. She’ll be out at State either way and won’t care what happens after that.
Don’t forget that the Obama people threatened to kill Chelsea if Bill and Hillary presented a petition at the 2008 Dem Convention challenging Obama’s eligibility. They threatened that after killing Bill Gwatney and Stephanie Tubbs (as each of them agreed to present the petition within the 2 weeks before the convention) didn’t convince the Clintons to drop the subject.
Could be that Bill thinks if Hillary does something like this it will actually protect Chelsea because it would be way too obvious if Hillary spilled the beans on Obama and then suddenly Chelsea has an “aneurysm” out of nowhere.
Earlier, Bill was telling R’s they had until the election to save America. For all his faults, Clinton is an American and I don’t think he likes where Obama/Soros are taking the country. I don’t think he favored the Islamists joining the communist alliance. But maybe I’m just gullible, or giving him too much the benefit of the doubt. He REALLY doesn’t like Obama though.
I hope Hillary listens to him and gets the truth out there.
My guess...Paul Begala and Sid Vicious Blumenthal.
The usual Clinton spin-suspects rearing their ugly heads again.
Amen. She will appear stronger doing it the right way rather than slinking about under Obama & Co.'s influence.
Why would she... Politically speaking? Benghazigate is too big now... Subpoenas will be filed which will exonerate her if this is true... If she wants to exonerate herself before the election, she’ll let it be known through back channels that if subpoenad she’ll cooperate.. The fact that it has not happened leads me to believe she thinks bammy will lose anyway... best scenario for her, as none if the base would blame her and she’d be exonerated after the election.
I believe Hillary was close friends with Ambassador Stevens, so this has to doubly stinging.
And, they have the media covering up for them on all of this.
Heads need to roll.....
How is this situation different from all the other Clinton manipulative crap we’ve suffered?
Don’t you wish just one reporter would ask this simple question:
Mr. President, your administration either lied or is completely incompetent. Which one is it?
They threatened to kill Chelsea? What on Earth are you talking about?
Got Hillbilly on her knees.
Yes, this is her only option now-- it doesn't need to be that subtle, but the Clinton's cannot simply come forward publicly.
And they have been spending time together over the last couple weekends, surely trying to stratgize the path forward- here they are at a local sidewalk sale on the 14th weekend before she went to South America: http://pleasantville.patch.com/articles/bill-and-hillary-clinton-spotted-in-pleasantville#photo-11720463
-- Hillary Clinton
-- Hillary Clinton
TRUE???!!! That is why the Clinton’s stopped talking about the B.C.. Watch We Will Not Be Silenced on you tube it’s is mentioned there.
Hillary was busy baking cookies for her daughter.
This information came out a year or so ago from a woman who was making an official documentary about Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign.
I can’t stand Bill or Hillary but.. in a 90 second sound-bite he could sink Obama making him forever a pariah (Michelle too through association), crush the remnants of the uber-liberal (Kennedy) wing of the party, put a serious hurt on the Chicago thug faction, and get the nitwit media to portray Hillary as the heroine in this episode. At the end of the day, he would again be the undisputed head of the Democrat party.
Oh would I love to see that.
"Some have sought to BLAME the inflammatory material posted on the Internet FOR the vicious behavior.", is more like it. This "some" are Obama, Jarrett, Rice, Carney AND Hillary!
I think she may be coming clean, but she’s doing in a clandestine fashion. I.e. who has been leaking the damning emails to the media. A slow trickle will keep this in the news for days, perhaps right up to the election time.
Here it is, Hildy.
Hillary speaking the truth?
You are foolish. Very.
I agree. Chelsea factor. Just last week or week before I saw it mentioned she was thinking about politics.
Hillary had complete authority over the various US embassies around the world. For her to have established and overseen an embassy in Libya and not provide security in the form of embassy duty trained Marines, is, at the very least, a gross deriliction of her SoS duties and boarders upon criminal neglect.
Hillary claims it was her responsibility, and to my mind, should resign in disgrace.....merely saying you are taking responsibility without suffering the consequences is tantamount to evading taking responsibility.
Instead of doing the right thing, Hillary, and Bill, seem to be more concerened about protecting her potential as a Presidential candidate in 2016.
She won’t do the right thing. She will protect the party at all costs, consequences be d@mned.
Operation Chaos in 2008 proved to me beyond all possible doubt that Hillary Clinton is loyal to the Democrat Party. She had Obama by the throat with overwhelming evidence of caucus fraud, but she folded on the national convention floor. She didn’t want the party elite to turn on her.
Such a fascinating statement from a stranger. Do you always shoot the messenger or is this one of your newly acquired habits?
What is her best interest after Obama loses the election?
Probably not to continue covering up.
If what Klein has reported is true, this is much more important than a matter of political expediency or as I stated above, and in my opinion, beyond concern over this or any future Presidential election.
Americans died. If the Secretary of State has information that a sitting President played any part in the negligence which led to the deaths of the four people, it is the Secretary of State's obligation to do the right thing and report it.
Hillary must speak up. The world is watching. There will be long term negative consequences for all Americans should she choose not to, in my opinion.
Keep it classy, would you please.
ROFLOL! Perfect Hildy! That one is a keeper. :)
sat by and just watched..........got that right. Like they were just playing and watching some video war game. Where's my joystick!!!!!!!!!!!!!, just as callous as that.
I too hope hitlery outs the current interlopers in the WhiteyHut, but what the hells she gonna say, “I was incompetent?” or “I bowed down to nobama?”
The relationship between Hillary and Obama will be altered by the election results on November 6.
If he wins, he is still the President...and she is his lame duck Secretary of State (having already announced that she will resign at the end of the term).
If he loses...all bets are off. Hillary is free to take whatever course best sets her up for 2016. If that appears to be burning Obama, she will do it. If it appears to be an accelerated resignation, as a point of honor, she will do it.
At the same time, Obama is free to exact any revenge his twisted mind feels he is entitled to. He might fire her, for example, for her "malfeasance at Benghazi" -- before she can resign.
We are probably in line for the most eventful -- and dangerous -- lame duck presidency in history.
Uncle Joe Biden versus Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election.
That’s how it immediately shapes up in my mind. There will be some new faces involved as well. In my mind, the new faces are odds on favorites to take the crown from one of those two codgers.
Hillary, however, can put Joe Biden to rest if he and Barack lose this election.
Here in Ohio yesterday, he referred to us as Iowa. I know we share the letters “i” and “o”, but they are different words.
We are just flyover country, however, so I feel his pain. /s
