    The Weekly Standard - Magazine ^ | MAY 2, 2014 | STEPHEN F. HAYES
    In response to a Freedom of Information Act request filed last summer by Judicial Watch, the Obama administration last week released 41 documents related to the attacks on U.S. facilities in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11, 2012. An email from the deputy national security adviser, Ben Rhodes, has received most of the attention. In it, Rhodes laid out four goals for Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, who would be appearing on five Sunday talk shows 36 hours later. “To convey that the United States is doing everything that we can to protect our people and facilities...
  • No evidence Al Qaeda or terror groups had any involvement in Benghazi consulate attack

    A New York Times investigation has found no evidence to support claims al-Qaeda or any other international terrorist organization had links to the 2012 storming of the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya. The six-part report published Saturday instead blamed the poorly-planned attack on local extremists outraged by an American-made video mocking Islam. The Times refutes claims made by many Republicans that al-Qaeda was involved in the attack despite Obama administration assertions to the contrary. ‘Extensive interviews with Libyans in Benghazi who had direct knowledge of the attack there and its context, turned up no evidence that Al Qaeda or other

    The new year began not with a cannonball off the “fiscal cliff” but with an outbreak of conspiratorial cynicism. This time it’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, whose fall and concussion, followed by a blood clot between her brain and skull, has prompted an embarrassment of theories. The gist: That woman will do anything to avoid testifying about Benghazi. Several commentators on the right opined via Twitter and TV, those most deadly hosts for the parasites of rumor and innuendo, that Clinton was faking her concussion to duck out on her appearance before congressional committees investigating the attack on the...

    **SNIP** On Friday, however, CNN reported that "doctors have grounded her from overseas travel for several more weeks." The report made no mention of the trip to the Dominican Republic. The Huffington Post said Thursday that according to Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines, Secretary Clinton "continues to recuperate at home and will resume her office schedule next week." Reines also said that "Clinton had no schedule this week because of a long-planned holiday," Matthew Lee wrote. Last week, CNN said Clinton was too sick to appear before Congress to testify on the attack that saw four Americans killed, including Ambassador Chris...

    Former Russian president Boris Yeltsin got so drunk during a visit to Washington that he was found standing outside the White House in his underpants trying to hail a cab to go and buy a pizza. The following night he was mistaken for a drunken intruder when he was discovered stumbling around the basement of his guest house by secret service agents. The drunken behaviour of Yeltsin, who was known for his fondness for vodka and died two years ago aged 76, were revealed by former US president Bill Clinton.

    ABC News' David Chalian Reports: Hillary Clinton stepped directly into the middle of this week's political fray when she questioned former Vice President Dick Cheney's credibility on the torture memos recently released by the Obama administration. Congressman Dana Rohrbacher, R-Calif., took up Dick Cheney's cause today and pressed Secretary of State Clinton to urge the Obama administration to declassify and release documents he believes demonstrate the success of the enhanced interrogation techniques employed during the Bush administration. Rep. Rohrbacher referred to Mr. Cheney's recent comments where he claimed the memos released by the Obama administration last week tend to only...

    We know why politicians lie when they get in trouble: they think the consequences of telling the truth are too severe to bear. That's why Richard Nixon lied about Watergate, and Bill Clinton about Monica Lewinsky. The more complicated question is why they fib—why politicians insist on stretching unimportant stories in ways that are easy to check and refute. Hillary Clinton's oft-told yarn about ducking sniper fire on the tarmac in Tuzla, Bosnia, in 1996 has gotten a lot of publicity, maybe too much. Her misrepresentation of her role in the Northern Ireland peace talks was more serious but less...

"I didn't really get how much sexism there still was in our country until I was at a rally with my mom in New Hampshire, and someone came up to me and said, 'I just can't see a woman being commander in chief,"' Clinton said during a stop in Research Triangle Park.

SEELYE The Clinton campaign says Senator Hillary Clinton may have “misspoke” recently when she said she had to evade sniper fire when she was visiting Bosnia in 1996 as first lady. She has been using the episode as an example of her foreign policy bona fides. “I certainly do remember that trip to Bosnia, and as Togo said, there was a saying around the White House that if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn’t go, so send the First Lady,” she said last week. “That’s where we went.

He used that exact line with voters in Aiken, S.C., yesterday, and it has been pointed out more than once over the course of this campaign. The usually shy Chelsea also touted her mother's record on Darfur, telling a group at Stanford University earlier this month that she was "really proud that my mom was the first Democratic senator to call it genocide in May of 2004 and put a lot...

    So it turns out the Clinton camp didn't tip after all. Kos is running with this: Esterday said "nobody got tipped that day," and NPR should have checked with the Clinton campaign before the story aired to see if any tip was left and how it was done. We regret that this was not done. On Thursday, Esterday was sticking by her story. "Why would I lie about not getting a tip?" she told NPR. She also maintained that her co-workers at the restaurant had not received tips. A Clinton campaign staffer called on Esterday at the restaurant Thursday after...

    With all the finger-pointing over, it's time to review the Bill Clinton-Chris Wallace battle over responsibility for 9/11. It's never too late to set the record straight. Leaving aside the question of whether or not Clinton's performance during his interview with Wallace on September 24 was genuine and unexpected, or calculated and staged, Clinton was factually challenged. The interview took place two weeks after the premier of ABC's docudrama, "The Path to 9//11," which Clinton and other leading Democrats sought to keep off the air. Veiled threats had been made to the Disney Corp., which owns ABC. But after some...

    It is now becoming ever clearer that the last decade of the 20th century could go down in history as the Decade of Illusions.

He predicted the bubble's burst almost to the day. Another of the illusions of the 1990s was that with the fall of communism barbarism vanished. The world would be safe. Our...

    To hear controversial filmmaker Michael Moore tell it in his new movie, "Fahrenheit 9/11," the only government officials who knew in advance al-Qaeda was a threat to the United States were members of the Bush administration. "Every single fact I state in [the movie] is the absolute and irrefutable truth," Moore says in a blog on his Web site. He goes on to take another jab at the administration after hearing White House spokesman Dan Bartlett describe the movie as "outrageously false," even though Bartlett said he had yet to see it.

    For the first time ever, ex-President Bill Clinton has admitted that he once publicly confessed to turning down an offer to have Osama bin Laden arrested before the 9/11 attacks. But in an interview broadcast Sunday, he now says that his confession was "not accurate." "What I said there was wrong, what I said was in error," Clinton told CNN's Christiane Amanpour, after she asked specifically about a 2002 speech to a Long Island business group where he detailed a 1996 offer from Sudan for bin Laden's extradition. The ex-president did not contest - as some of his defenders have...
