  • Libya Cover-Up: Hillary Clinton Throws Obama Under His Own Benghazi Bus

    A confusing array of contradictions concerning the murders of four Americans, one of which was a U.S. ambassador, was made worse by Vice President Joe Biden’s remarks during the debate with Republican vice presidential nominee Paul Ryan Thursday evening. Today the confusion only worsened yet again when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told reporters that her agency was not the source of misinformation concerning the attacks, charging instead that the White House was the source of the false mantra that the murders were spurred by an anti-Muslim film made in the  United States. Clinton told reporters that when Susan Rice,...
  • Clinton: 'I take responsibility' for security ahead of Benghazi attack

    Lima, Peru (CNN) -- Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the buck stops with her when it comes to who is to blame for security ahead of a deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya. "I take responsibility" for what happened on September 11, Clinton said in an interview with CNN's Elise Labott soon after arriving in Lima, Peru, for a visit. The interview, one of a series given to U.S. television networks Monday night, was the first she has given about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Clinton insisted President Barack Obama and Vice...

    I am imagining that Hillary Clinton is spending a great deal of time with close advisors and political strategists this week.  She has been a very good soldier for Barack Obama for four years now.  But there is no way that Hillary Clinton is going to allow her own presidential ambitions for 2016 to be spoiled so that Barack Obama can be re-elected in 2012. An inevitable gunfight has been building between the Chicago Democratic machine and the Arkansas Democratic royalty for weeks now.  And President Obama can thank his short-sighted Vice President for expediting the inevitable shootout to...

    I don’t often give Democrats advice but when I do, it is good advice. Hillary Clinton has a choice she has to make. This one should seem like an obvious choice. It is a tough choice but obvious. What is it? Barack Obama is throwing Hillary under the bus. Obama cannot accept blame for anything and his handling of the Benghazi Consulate attack has been nothing short of disastrous. Obama not only lied about the attack, he blamed the violence on an idiotic video instead of its real cause, Islamic terrorism. Unfortunately for Obama, the scandal is blowing up in...

    In an exclusive interview with The Daily Caller, Klein said sources close to the Clintons tell him that Bill Clinton has assembled an informal legal team to discuss how the Secretary of State should deal with the issue of being blamed for not preventing the Benghazi terrorist attack last month. White House spokesman Jay Carney told reporters during a press conference Friday that responsibility for the consulate in Libya fell on the State Department, not the White House. If blame for the security failures falls to Hillary Clinton, Klein said, it’s possible that she would even consider resigning over the...

    The latest quarrel began when Clinton heard that Obama was behaving so cocky about his first debate against Mitt Romney that he wasn’t taking his debate prep seriously. Out of concern, Clinton had an aide call the White House and say that the former president would be more than happy to give the current president some pointers and advice on how to get the best of Romney. Clinton waited several days for a response, but none was forthcoming. According to my sources, the former president was dumbfounded that Obama had ignored his offer, and his hurt feelings quickly boiled over...

    U.S. intelligence efforts in Libya have suffered a significant setback due to the abandonment and exposure of a facility in Benghazi, Libya identified by a newspaper as a "CIA base" following a congressional hearing this week, according to U.S. government sources. The intelligence post, located 1.2 miles from the U.S. mission that was targeted by militants in a September 11 attack, was evacuated of Americans after the assault that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens. Three other Americans died in the attacks on U.S.-occupied buildings, including two who were hit in a mortar blast at the secret compound. The publication of satellite...

    It's time for Hillary Clinton to testify about what happened in LibyaBy K.T. McFarland Published October 12, 2012 FoxNews.com **SNIP** In Thursday night's debate, Vice President Biden claimed fault lies with the Intelligence Community and the State Department were to blame for the tragic events in Libya. Secretary Clinton knows better, and should speak out so those truly responsible be held to account. What a pity if one of the final public images we have of Secretary Clinton is a her clinging to an increasingly unbelievable narrative, while standing over the flag-draped coffins of American heroes who died for someone...

    Despite sworn testimony to the contrary by State Department officials at a House of Representatives hearing this week, Vice-President Joe Biden claimed during his debate with GOP VP nominee Congressman Paul Ryan that the White House had no warning of the security problems at the Libyan Consulat Presidential Press Secretary Jay Carney suggested that “perhaps this issue was covered in one of the national security briefings that the President was unable to attend. We all know the President has more things to do than he has time to do them. So, there are going to be occasions when he may...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States must look past the violence and extremism that has erupted after the "Arab Spring" revolutions and boost support for the region's young democracies to forge long-term security, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday. Clinton, seeking to reinforce the Obama administration's Middle East policy following a wave of anti-American violence and last month's deadly attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, said Washington cannot be deterred by "the violent acts of a small number of extremists." "We recognize that these transitions are not America's to manage, and certainly not ours to win...

    In fact, since the convention, Clinton and Obama have had a serious falling-out over two issues: the president’s preparation and lamentable performance in his debate with Mitt Romney, and the question of who should be assigned blame — Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — for the intelligence and security screw-up in Benghazi, Libya.

    The decision to raid Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan and kill him was made without President Obama – and actually was kept from him until after the helicopters already were in Pakistani airspace – according to a new report from a retired major general who cites a senior intelligence source. The raid was handled by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Director of Central Intelligence Leon Panetta and others in this way because Obama had vetoed multiple earlier opportunities to attack the man behind the 9/11 terror attacks, the report said.

    Of all the people that Barack Obama has compromised, pressured, controlled, manipulated, blackmailed, and otherwise kept a lid on over the last four years, hallelujah at long-last somebody has turned and refused to lie for him anymore- and that somebody is Hillary Clinton: the US State Dept. yesterday completely dis-avowed the White House's dubious account of events in Benghazi on 9/11, forcing Obama to retract his earlier, BS-laden version. Surprised? Can't imagine why- following a nasty 2008 primary, Bill Clinton and Obama have been what you might call 'frenemies', even as Hillary was co-opted/politically contained by bringing her into the Obama Administration....

    Beyond the realm of inconvenient truths, there's a dimension to which Bill Clinton occasionally retreats. It's a dimension of fertile imaginations, sound bites and mind games whose boundaries the gullible determine. In this wondrous land, tokes aren't inhaled, sex with interns isn't sex, and the meaning of “is” isn't always is. When Clinton wags his finger to punctuate a claim, like “no president — not me or any of my predecessors — could have repaired all the damage in just four years,” it's his poker “tell.” Next stop: the Twilight Zone. Ironically, the president who rode to victory in 1992...

Kennedy, who in turn reports directly to Secretary of State Clinton. A primary responsibility of Boswell and Lamb in Libya was enforcing the "No Marines, No Bullets" State Department Rules of Engagement for Libya document signed by Secretary Clinton some time within the past year and a half after the fall of Khadafi's dictatorship in Libya.

    Four Americans are dead from a September 11 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and it's becoming abundantly clear that security at the compound had been incredibly lax and that the Obama administration may have actively attempted to deceive the public about the terroristic nature of the strike in the first few days subsequent to it. A House committee is holding a hear as I write this to get to the bottom of things. So how did the Post cover the story in the Wednesday, October 10 paper? By worrying about the political impact on Secretary of State...

    Good question. After all, the State Department actually conducted the dog-and-pony show on behalf of the White House after the terrorist attack on our Benghazi consulate that left four Americans dead, including the first US Ambassador assassinated on assignment in 33 years. Hillary Clinton's UN envoy Susan Rice went on five Sunday talk shows to propagate a cover story that Hillary Clinton's own organization announced last night it never believed.So where is the Secretary of State these days, anyway? The fatal attack on a U.S. diplomatic compound in Libya last month has become a test of Secretary of State Hillary...

    They are, in other words, pre-empting Clinton and Rice from blaming subordinates (them) for the lies told to the public, pretending Benghazi was not an Al Qaeda operation on the anniversary of 9/11. The president was loath to admit that the killing of Osama bin Laden hadn't ended the AQ threat. In fact, even now he maintains that the terror organization is "on its heels," perhaps even now hoping to maintain the false narrative of a spontaneous response to a YouTube vide. Keep in Mind that Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador who was dragged through the streets of Benghazi and...
