Hillary Clinton flounders on
the Benghazi front

Telegraph [UK], by Nile Gardiner

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 1/23/2013 3:15:37 PM

It was not exactly a bravura performance today from the Secretary of State, who testified this morning before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations. Hillary Clinton came across as defiant, evasive, blasé, and at times hugely unconvincing when answering questions from Republican Senators about the death of four Americans at the hand of Islamist terrorists in Benghazi last September, including the assassination of the US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens. After listening to several hours of Mrs. Clinton defending her administration’s handling of the Benghazi debacle, including UN Ambassador Susan Rice’s preposterous suggestion on Sunday morning talk shows

Comments:
Nile nails it. And whoever was responsible for choosing the accompanying photograph--congratulations! It´s the kind of lunch-losing apparel mistake Clinton usually makes instead of the somber and symbolic Islam Green she wore at the hearing today.

It is sad to watch the hearings! We need better than what we see! Questions need to be asked to get to the truth, not disavow any responsibility!

Hillary snickers and her liberal friends support/congratulate her constantly, instead of really seeking answers to what happened in Benghazi!

With the way first a Republican then a Democrat questions Hillary, it simply gives each one time to posture themselves and their personal agenda.

We need a hearing wherein truth is sought and only the questions are asked that will bring about what "really happened"!

Again, this is not our best moment!

Congress needs to make a stand for righteousness, not political-correctness!

Pray for America!

This is not the country I once thought provided truth to be honored/respected/sought.

Look back to Watergate, where the Dems were totally committed to questioning everyone to prove their point.

The Dems do not judge their own, only excuse them, congratulate them for "getting away" with whatever they have done.

The Clintons have proved they know how to "use" the law to their advantage!

I´m trying to select the biggest whopper told by hillary, and must conclude that it was when she said that the State department did not question the survivors of the attack, because the FBI was going to investigate. But the FBI did not send agents to Benghazi for a month, and CNN went into the consulate a few days after the attack, and found all sorts of documents.
(The republicans have been pitifully incompetent in their questioning so far, with the exception of Senator Johnson.)

~~It underscores the fact that Clinton has been a less than impressive Secretary of State, whose leadership on an array of foreign policy matters, from Syria to Egypt and Iran, has been underwhelming.~~

SOMEONE finally says it! Listening to the boot-licking demoRat members is beyond sickening!

What else would we expect?

The Pig-in-a-Pantsuit lied about the "vast, right-wing conspiracy." She lied about "landing under sniper fire" in Bosnia. She lied about the Rose Law Firm billing records. She lied about the White House travel office. She lied about Vince Foster.

Bill and Hillary Clinton are congenital liars. Lying is what they do best. Lies are all you´ll get if you put either of them under oath.

This is okay with Democrats. The Democrat Party is founded on lies, subsists on lies, and is comprised of the most pathological liars in history.

This is who these people are.

Basicly, Hillary provided not a heck of a lot of help, and no illumination as to what went on both in Benghazi and in the Bawdy House at 1600 Penn Ave. About all she accomplished was to polish the door knobs on her way out of office.
And you know her replacement Senator Lurch will be of no help...Most probably;"... Blame Bush and the Republicans..."

At times i wanted to throw something at the screen; at others, to throw up.

The faux tears. ugh. The pompous outrage atthe insistance that we know who was behind the attack, and why.

If knowing why the attacks happened doesn´t really matter, why were Hill-of-beans and BO & Dem/Lefties so insistent on blaming a stupid (unknown) video?

It all matters otherwise she and the whole unseemly regime would not have done everything possible to deflect investigation and interrogation until after the election.

When she was being praised for her "hard work" why didn´t someone ask why wine tasting in Australia (?) was more urgent that testifying in Congress?

sickening.

I know you did, OP, but #2 obviously missed it and thought the horrible picture was from today.

Brit Hume was wearing an Islam Green tie tonight the same color as Hillary´s suit. Interesting. He also blamed the Republican Senators and Congressmen for pontificating and talking on and on so they couldn´t press her on her answers before their time was up. This always happens in these hearings.

This is America today!

President Barack Obama will sign an executive order and a presidential ´memorandum´ on Tuesday targeting federal government contractors´ records on pay equity for female employees. But his own administration is still facing tough questions about why women can´t expect to earn as much as men in the White House. [Snip] The White House did not respond Monday to questions about whether it will issue a report dissecting how men and women, or a variety of racial groups, fare in its salary pool. That may be because 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has never paid the same levels of earnings to men and

A new report from Gallup shows that Americans without medical insurance now make up 15.6 percent of the population, the lowest level since 2008. But the organization hedged its bets when MailOnline asked how Medicaid enrollments might taint its conclusions. [Snip] Most of the swing toward the insurance rolls, however, has been among populations that have subscribed in large numbers to Medicaid, a low-income benefit program whose costs are borne entirely by taxpayers. Gallup editor-in-chief Frank Newport backed away from the suggestion that the numbers indicated success for President Barack Obama, telling MailOnline on Monday that Levy merely ´thought that

Underwater sounds detected by a ship searching the southern Indian Ocean for the missing Malaysia Airlines jet are consistent with the pings from aircraft black boxes, an Australian official said, calling it ´a most promising lead´. Angus Houston, the head of a joint agency co-ordinating the search, warned that it could take days to confirm whether the signals picked up by the Australian navy ship Ocean Shield are indeed from the black boxes that belonged to Flight MH370, but called the discovery very encouraging. ´Clearly this is a most promising lead, and probably in the search so far, it´s probably the

Seven million voters turned out across Afghanistan on Saturday to cast their ballots in the country´s historic presidential election. The Taliban had threatened to target voters and polling places, but there were few instances of violence. Instead, those wanting to cast ballots joined long lines and expressed pride for security forces guarding the election and a willingness to stand up for their country. Women also turned out in large numbers for the vote to replace President Hamid Karzai, who is barred constitutionally from seeking a third term. The election comes as foreign troops begin their withdrawal from the country after

A second pulse signal has been picked up by a Chinese ship searching for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370--just 1.2 miles from where the first was detected. Australian co-ordinators in the search for a missing Malaysian plane say Chinese ship Haixun 01 has detected a pulse signal for a second time, within hours of it being heard earlier on Saturday. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston called the discovery in the southern Indian Ocean an "important and encouraging lead".

Students at three Dearborn elementary schools received the flyers. A large number of Muslim students attend the schools.

Democrats are facing a senior problem that could get even worse this year. The party has traditionally had trouble with older voters, losing the group aged 65 and over by 21 points in 2010 — when Republicans picked up 63 seats — and by 12 points in the 2012 presidential race. Seniors are the GOP’s most reliable voting bloc in midterm years, turning out in higher numbers than Democratic base voters. A recent Gallup poll showed seniors have become even more Republican over the last two decades; in 2013, 48 percent considered themselves Republican. That spells trouble for Democrats, who are already facing

WASHINGTON- Seven million people signed up, so there is an appetite for President Barack Obama´s health care law, but that doesn´t guarantee success for the country´s newest social program. Big challenges are lurking for the next enrollment season, which starts Nov. 15. Chief among them are keeping premiums and other consumer costs in check, and overhauling an enrollment process that was advertised as customer-friendly but turned out to be an ordeal.

The president gave two speeches this week, one in the Rose Garden to talk about Obamacare and one in Ann Arbor, Mich., to push minimum wage increases. What did we learn? We learned that President Obama is most comfortable in campaign mode, and his campaigning has gotten downright ugly. His Rose Garden speech was a typical self-congratulatory moment for supposedly hitting 7.1 million Obamacare sign-ups — although we know that once again, the White House is ignoring some inconvenient truths. We also learned that the president was vain enough to asked the networks to cover his speech in prime time, but
