Hillary Clinton in hospital amid speculation of plane accident in Iran
DEBKAfile Special Report ^ | December 31, 2012 | DEBKAfile Special Report

Posted on 01/02/2013 1:10:35 AM PST by Heuristic Hiker

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s admittance to the New York- Presbyterian Hospital Monday, Dec, 31 - with a blood clot caused by concussion - gave wings to a cloud of rumor and conspiracy theories surrounding her state of health. The hospital, where Saudi King Abdullah was also treated two years ago, stated that the Secretary was receiving anti-coagulents and her condition would be assessed after 48 hours.

However, NBC television’s medical correspondent Robert Bazell was skeptical about the blood clot being caused by an earlier concussion because, he said, it if were, it would not be treated with anti-coagulents. “So either it's not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told.”

Speculation about her condition started flying about in early December, when she cancelled without notice, her participation in the Friends of Syrian forum in Marrakesh on Dec, 6. Not only was she one of the founders of this forum, but her presence was vitally needed at the time because NATO and Washington were picking up suspicious movements of the Syrian army’s chemical weapons, which marked a disastrous turn in the Syrian conflict. She was first reported to have come down with flu and, three days later, on Dec, 9, with a stomach bug.

On Dec. 10, the day before she was due to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the September 11 terrorist attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi - in which Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other US diplomats lost there lives - the State Department which has been heavily under fire over the episode, announced that Clinton had sustained a concussion after fainting out from dehydration.

None of the details normally released in such cases, such as when exactly she fainted, the seriousness of the concussion she suffered or how she was being treated, was offered. A State Department source was only willing to say it was “not severe.” According to another unofficial report, she was apparently working from home. No one in the office appeared to have been delegated her functions although the secretary herself has not been been absent for three weeks.

Then, Friday, Dec. 21, President Barack Obama announced the nomination of Massachusetts Senator John Kerry as next Secretary of State. Clinton had made it known for some time that she intended stepping down at the start of Obama’s second term of office. It was reported that she had talked to the president and Kerry, and commended the senator as having proven his mettle in a long and wide-ranging military, political and diplomatic career. Nothing was said on this occasion about her state of health.

But around Tehran and the Gulf Emirates, debkafile was already picking up insistent rumors claiming that Clinton was seriously injured while on a secret mission in the region in the first week of December. Some claimed that in the same incident, Americans in her party - advisers and security personnel - were either injured or killed. Those rumors did not say what her secret mission was. However, the episode described occurred shortly after Dec. 1, when, as debkafile reported at the time, Obama administration officials and senior representatives of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei launched secret talks on Iran’s nuclear program.

Although our sources have not identified the negotiators on either side of the table, one of the theories floating around certain capitals claimed that Hillary Clinton three weeks ago was on her way to a secret meeting with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in regard to those negotiations. The plane carrying her from Bahrain logged its destination as Baghdad, but is described as having changed direction in midair and headed for Ahvaz, capital of the south Iranian province of Khuzestan. There, it was said, the Iranian president was awaiting her arrival. But then the plane ran into technical trouble and made an emergency landing and that was when she was injured, according to this theory.

The unexplained death of Commander Job Price, 42, SEALs commander in Afghanistan is tied by some of the speculation to that incident. At the time, the Pentagon reported that his sudden death on Dec. 22, in Uruzgan, Afghanistan, was under investigation. It is now suggested that Commander Price was head of the security detail attached to Clinton for her Iran mission and he was one of the casualties of the accident.

In the nature of things, the impact these kinds of rumors have lingers even when they are officially denied – especially given Secretary Clinton's unusually long absence from the public eye. The medical report promised Wednesday after she is monitored at the hospital for 48 hours to assess her condition, “including other issues associated with her concussion,” is tensely awaited. After that, said the hospital announcement, “her doctors will determine if any further action is required.”

Clinton, known as the most traveled Secretary of State in US diplomatic history, has been in the international spotlight since 1992 when her husband Bill Clinton was elected president and she became first lady. She then served in the US Senate and later ran for the presidency against Barack Obama.

Debka aside, this part is pretty interesting — I didn’t know this ... even some in the MSM having doubts.

~~~~However, NBC television’s medical correspondent Robert Bazell was skeptical about the blood clot being caused by an earlier concussion because, he said, it if were, it would not be treated with anti-coagulents. “So either it’s not really related to the concussion and she’s got a blood clot in her leg or something, or there’s something else going on that we’re not being told.”~~~~

The source is unreliable, but many people out here on the periphery have voiced voice suspicion that the former Goldwater Girl's official symptoms and treatments are most often associated with stroke.

That Ben Franklin haircut seems symptomatic all by itself.

I really don’t GAF about hillary but I find it hard to imagine just how deep in the ‘system’ I were to be buried if a son of mine were KIA and ‘MY GOVT’ tried to pass his death off as a suicide.
If nothing else, stage a ‘phony’ raid and let him go down in a blaze of glory or even as a passenger in a roadside bomb.

Realizing the need for secrecy etc, there are other ways to ‘erase’ him than humiliate him and his family.

So we are supposed to go from, too chicken sheite to testify, to a national hero in 3 weeks? Either way, I hope this ditches her run in 2016 cause her brains are too scrambled to be prez now.

One way to check all this is find out what Billy has been doing the last 3 weeks. Has anyone seen him? I heard the daughter was seen leaving a hospital or something, but that's it. If she fell while drunk or something, we will see how big the scars are when she comes out,....if she comes out.

The Commander’s death was reported as a death due to noncombat related injury. So it goes viral on the net that he committed suicide.

Death due to injuries sustained in a plane crash because of an equipment malfunction could be classified as a death by a noncombat related injury. But if say you believe it was a plane crash, then you’re a conspiracy nut.

The Washington Elite have the “misdirection - you’re a conspiracy nut if you don’t beleive me” thing down to a science.

Yes, but AP, USA Today, Huffington and a Philly TV sta use the old ‘according to a Military Official etc...’

In all fairness I don’t really read OR BELIEVE any of the above so am skeptical of citing them etc...

As to the CDR, I did see something (unofficial etc)saying that in less than a year just about the entire team that took down OBL are gone....

My cynicism went into high gear after the supposed helicopter crash that wiped out so many SEALs that could have been staged to cover up the fact that the Administration blew it by revealing to many facts.
Then again, that is giving ‘the gang that can’t shoot straight’ far to much credit for creativeness.

I agree with you BUT if LBJ, in WWII, can get a Silver Star because he flew over an island in the Pacific that was (supposedly) under attack, and JFKerry can get one for writing up his own recommendation etc, it seems kind of harsh that someone that is ‘babysitting’ some Fat Arse Pol in a war zone gets a noncombat related injury...Such is life....
Besides isn’t that what Blackwater (or what they are called today) is over there for?

Iran: US Plane Leaves After Emergency Landing
By BY NASSER KARIMI
TEHRAN, Iran December 30, 2012

A small American commercial plane left Iran Sunday after it was repaired following an emergency landing at an Iranian airport this month, state TV reported.

The plane was forced to land 16 days ago at the airport of the southern city of Ahvaz due to technical failure, Mahmoud Rasoulinejad, head of the state-owned Iran Airports Company, told the TV station.

(snip)

It was not clear why the announcement of the plane’s landing was not made earlier.

I am not a doctor, but I’ll play one on the internet.

A stroke has been one of my thoughts too. A buddy of mine had a blood clot. He went to the hospital was treated. He went home and had a stroke that night. This sounds very similar to what Hillary seems to be going through. FYI, my buddy ended up suing his doctor.

My initial thought was plastic surgery. However, now I think she may have had a stroke. We will probably never know unless she reaches an untimely demise. This may still be all a ruse to keep her from testifing.

The Clinton's use the same tactics as organized crime.

Ensnare people in positions of power in their web of corruption. If they talk they go down along with the Clinton's, or in the case of V Foster and many others, they just end up dead.

The Clinton's got control of the news media with the LA race riots of 1992. The news media had to keep up the lies or go down themselves.

The stomach flu concussion excuse does seem a little weak.

More likely Hill either got a little too jacked up on Wild Turkey over the holidays and fell down and went boom or something more severe such as stroke or concussion via plane crash.

Foster's family didn't make a peep over his Arkancide. This link is showing suicide.

The first time she exited the hospital yesterday, I was adjusting my tin foil hat while thinking body double wearing sunglasses. What was with the sunglasses and what needed hiding? She was looking old and feeble gripping Chelsea's hand so no campaign face lift. Then 15 minutes later she returns? Why would she return? The little people might have forgotten to sign a release form or forget their prescription so would have to return but those reasons are below the Clintons. Send the surfs to take care of the paperwork. Sorry, I'm not buying she returned but then I didn't buy that she had anything but Benghazi-itis. If she were in a plane crash, she'd have the spin doctors making her out to be a hero who was dodging imaginary bullets again which would be a great lead in to 2016. I'm also not buying she'll be anywhere close to a ballot in ‘16. All this plane crash and illness is nothing but throwing out a lot of bs and hoping something sticks to get her out of testifying. Bait and switch. Smoke and mirrors. Dance a little sidestep.

Rasoulinejad said three passengers left Iran for Arab countries in the Gulf, but the plane remained under repair in the airport. He said the plane took off from Iran Sunday upon arrival of needed spare parts and completion of repairs.

It was not clear why the announcement of the plane's landing was not made earlier.

Interesting - ABC covered this AP story - and ABC IS a major Clinton suck-up network... Seems the Clinton's wanted this story out... I don't believe Clinton was on board - feels like a red herring... but who knows if or why?
