Hillary Clinton — culpable for
Benghazi from beginning to end

Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 5/7/2013 5:14:14 AM

When it first became clear that the CIA’s Benghazi talking points had been altered, many of us viewed the White House as the prime suspect. After all, it served President Obama’s political purposes to claim, at the height of a political campaign in which he was taking credit for the fall of al Qaeda, that the death of a U.S. ambassador was down to spontaneous outrage over a video, rather than pre-planned terrorism. It turns out, however, that the State Department was the prime culprit. It was State that pushed back hard against the original talking points.

I think there should be a few wrongful death law suits here...at the very least!

sadly - I agree with the author. In three years no one will be able/willing to remember
the Benghazi fiasco. she will run and I´d bet a buck she will win. Republicans just don´t have it to criticize her in ways that would ensure her loss.

well, maybe Ted Cruz...

As I posted before Hillary treated Benghazi like it was one of Bill´s bimbo eruptions. Hide the truth political careers are more important than the safety of people and I am waiting for the "vast right wing conspiracy" theory to explain the Republican investigation into what happened. I thought I would never see the day when those in control of our Government would abandon American citizens under attack by terrorists. It is a very sad, shameful day. What is even worse is the msm and the Democrats will do whatever they can to protect Hillary and Obama. They are all disgusting.

If Hillary is smart [and that is a big ´if´], then she would be sitting on documentation that shows that she was ordered from the top to misstate the reasoning behind the attacks. She could derail this presidency and boost her own chances, all in one fell swoop. Otherwise, she is toast.

When clinton and obama met the bodies on returning to the USA, SHE, at least, looked sickened and upset. He looked bored and late for an important date. I guess, in retrospect, Benghazi has proven to be the 3 a.m. call that neither person was qualified to answer. And hillary has always been a powerful man´s tool. She might pay the price for this awful event, but obama, useless boy child that he is, will skate free.

When Obama heard about the attack he disappeared at 5 pm and wasn´t heard from again until the next morning. What kind of CINC does that when one of his ambassadors is under attack? What kind of man?

Who denied permission for international border crossing? Isn´t that required by the President?

Hillary is expendable if the progressives have another presidential candidate in mind, and they will not hesitate to throw her under the bus. If, however, they circle the wagons, you can bet she will run for president with their full support. They know they can use sexism as a political tool with her as well as they did racism with Obama.

It´s about the economy, nothing else. And Bambi stays at 50% and goes higher if we try to impeach.

A few observations:

John Kerry now has the keys to all the closets at State that contain Hillary´s secrets.

Ronald Reagan was 69 when he was elected to his first term.

John Kerry will be only 72 in 2016.

John Kerry is capable of noticing all of the above himself.

These are political pig criminals especially Hillary Clinton.
George Bush would have sent troops and support no matter the political consequences. Cheney and Rumsfeld would have backed him. These were American men first and leaders that Americans around the world should be able to count on.
I detest the fact that they gave the order to stand down then went to bed. All for the purpose of political gain and the war on terror is over and Bin Laden was dead.
Hillary´s cavalier attitude in the hearing was dispicible and criminal.
For weeks they professed a made up video to cover the murders up. I´m surprised they didn´t call the terrorist ´movie critics´.

Sunday night, the National Geographic channel ran an episode on the real story behind the Oscar winning movie, Argo. . What I found so unsettling is that in 1979 a CIA operative took the initiative to hatch some convuluted plan to rescue those six(?) American diplomats and yet, Benghazi, Libya 2012 - 10 years+ into the war on terror and 2 years+ after the death of Osama bin Laden and nothing....

I also think the WH had State change the talking points - Obama, as the first Black president has a historical reputataion to protect, Hillary - not so much. She´s been used and abused by men for so long, why stand up to any now?

A story:
"I was in the attack on the American stronghold. We had received word from our Washington cutout that the Ambassador would be there along with many leaders directing the running of arms to Al Qaeda in Syria, Northern Africa and to America to continue jihad. It was now time to end this operation, and there must be no witnesses to it. We were assured there would be no resistance. We were evidently lied to, because a contingency force arrived killing many of our men. And we were unable to finish the mission of total elimination of the Americans. We were told there would be a stand down order, but it must have not been carried out. However, because of the operation, we now have chemical weapons, rockets and more to not only use in Syria, but America itself."

According to my precise calculations, starting in 1992, this makes 4,174 events that will "bring down Hillary once and for all."

She´ll run in 2016, and the GOP pansies won´t have the balls to even bring it up, much less call her on it.

#27: Oscar winning movie? Did you or anyone else who saw that movie notice that they conveniently left out the fact that the trigger point for the seizure of the US Embassy in Iran was Jimmy Carter giving refuge to the Shah in the United States? Lies by omission. The Argo beginning narrative, obviously told by an Arab-sounding female, said it was allll the United States fault for overthrowing Iranian leaders over time and that was the only issue. Way to go Ben Aflac, right?! Quack quack-democrat donkey kissing movie.

If the Republicans at the hearings are smart they will avoid grandstanding, and steer the testimony into implicating that Hillary is completely culpable. Then provide her with the opportunity to testify under oath to clear her "reputation." She´ll either self-destruct (good) or blame Obama (better).

House Republicans: get your "A" game together. Name a former prosecutor in your midst as primary inquisitor, and all cede your time to him so he has more time to develop a condemning narrative.

Well, the GOP has had it´s campaign strategy against the Shrill One handed to them on a silver platter. Want to know what a Hillary Administration would look like? Just look at the mess she made running the State Department! I´ve always said that Hillary is a mediocrity who only got where she is today because of the men in her life, and the fact is she´s accomplished very little with the opportunities handed to her. Had her husband not been President, would she have ever been a US Senator or taken seriously as a Presidential candidate? And if that hadn´t made her such a threat to Oblunder, would he have ever made her Secretery of State? Don´t think so! If feminists are looking for an icon or a role model, they need to look elsewhere. Riding her mens´ coattails doesn´t qualify Shrillary for the role.

Hillary & Obama are not the problem - "we the people" are brainwashed,over protected & spiritually degenerate. Hillary will be very dangerous in the 2016 election for the GOP - she flies under the radar & is a total "globalist" as are most politicians & ALL presidents since Ronald Reagan. Devil´s ace trump is to get the world "to sing in perfect harmony" but he is being stopped by conservatives,WWII veterans & a few pastors who are still teaching the truth - not "holy roller" but truth unemotionally from the Greek & Hebrew. America has forgotten our great past & only a few still stand in the gap. God bless those conservatives,war heroes,Tea Party,ones who stand when our flag goes by & people who remember how to sing our National Anthem with tears rolling down their cheeks!!

Benghazi won´t affect Hillary´s chances--2016 is an eternity away and Americans have no attention span. There is also zero evidence that, had the administration told the truth about Benghazi on Sept 12th, it would have helped Romney,either. In fact after the seoond debate, Romney´s brief rise in the polls after the first debate subsided, and Romney was toast before Hurricane Sandy.

Benghazi was immediately covered up, ignored and lied about for two reasons:

First, so as not to rock the boat just before the Election, so to not jeopardize Blessed Hussein´s second term.

Second, so as not to jeopardize the PETUIATE´s long-delayed Election in 2016.

The clumsy changing of the talking points was all to these two ends. The subsequent continual flow of BS, same.

When push comes to shove, expect Obama will gleefully toss PIAPS under the bus, opening the way for Michelle in 2016.

The answer to Hitlary, is one good person running for office in the next presidential election. Unless Washington run a crook like McCain again, or a silent model like Mitt, the only chance America with current isane politics, is to produce a successful guy who knows about freedom, the free market, and who is not afraid to open all the closed business doors to all people.
Inspiring working pople to get non working peope back to work would be revolutionary.
It´s time for each psitiv citizen to confront each negative taking citizen, one on one might be our only last chance. All good Americans need to speak up !

I think Benghazi will matter for the 2016 elections because we will be engaged in a war (Israel vs Iran, Syria, Egypt & Russia). Which side will the US be helping? That will be key in 2016.
Military issues will matter and the next CiC will have to be strong. No dem can win in a straight up military election.

In a serious society, Obama (and if he didn´t know- yeah, right- his national security adviser & chief of staff), Clinton, Patraeus, Panetta and Dempsey are guilty of criminal negligence in the deaths of Stevens, Smith, Doherty and Woods and would go to federal prison for a very long time. They are also guilty of lying to the American people about this whole sordid mess. As we are no longer a serious society, all of these criminals will walk away from this.

Hillary Clinton is no more an abused and used by men all her life victim than a black widow spider.
She had no skills just ambition and the Nixon issue gave her the perfect foil in Bill Clinton.Both congressional interns --she with no charm or personality and Bill the charming product of a whore House upbringing willing and able. She is the user who found a home in the progressive movement. She knew the nation would not hire a woman as president so she blackmailed every dem possible to elect Bill.
Over confidant she could wipe out Obama she blundered herself under the bus wheels.
Hill and Obe schemed and lied while Americans died.

Over 2 billion people are celebrating Easter today, April 20, as the calendars of Western and Eastern churches coincide this year, and these billions of faithful people are celebrating HOPE. The Easter message begins with the hopeful news that death has been overcome by life, that hatred has been overcome by love, and that sorrow has been overcome by joy. The elements of the story involve women arriving at a garden tomb and finding it empty, but even better, meeting the risen Lord, the embodiment of life and love.

The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids. But you don’t have to hunt very far to find French chocolate and pastry shop windows full of Easter eggs all trying to out-cute, out-class, or simply out-design one another. Good-looking pastries and other sweets are a modestly priced pleasure in France. But like fashion designers, French patissiers and chocolatiers

Say Goodbye to Taiwan

WHAT ARE the implications for Taiwan of China’s continued rise? Not today. Not next year. No, the real dilemma Taiwan will confront looms in the decades ahead, when China, whose continued economic growth seems likely although not a sure thing, is far more powerful than it is today. Contemporary China does not possess significant military power; its military forces are inferior, and not by a small margin, to those of the United States. Beijing would be making a huge mistake to pick a fight with the American military nowadays. China, in other words, is constrained by the present global balance

The immediate "crisis" portion of the standoff involving the federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy over his cattle grazing on federal land ended last week. Whether this will be end of Bundy´s troubles with the BLM, who have been in court with him over his refusal to pay fees to them for decades, remains to be seen, with the Bundys reporting that they´ve received registered mail from the BLM this week that they haven´t opened yet. I blogged about a lot of the factual background of the conflict here, with links to some relevant court documents. This story

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON — Daniel Swalm was researching his family when he came across a disturbing episode in immigration history. That discovery would lead to a move in the U.S. Senate to apologize for action the nation took more than a century ago. Swalm discovered that under an obscure 1907 law, his grandmother Elsie, born and raised in Minnesota, was stripped of her U.S. citizenship after marrying an immigrant from Sweden. Swalm had never heard of the Expatriation Act that required a U.S.-born woman who married a foreigner to "take the nationality of her husband." Swalm, who lives in Minneapolis, found out about the law

This “Open Letter to the Friends of Ukraine,” by a guest columnist who writes under the pen name of Irina Gokieli, dated April 19, offers the author’s pessimistic scenario of forthcoming events in what Vladimir Putin now calls “NewRussia.” “NewRussia” encompasses southeastern Ukraine and parts of Moldova. She predicts an invasion by regular Russian troops near the end of the first week of May under the pretext of restoring order, although she does not rule out, as an alternative, an alliance of Putin with certain Ukrainian politicians and oligarchs. Notably the author makes a persuasive case that the long-term consequences

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
