Hillary Clinton faces new barrage
from the right over Benghazi

Reuters, by Mark Hosenball

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 2/14/2014 11:05:23 AM

Establishment Republicans and a right-wing group of former spies and special forces operatives that says it is nonpartisan but has historical Republican ties are raising a ruckus over Hillary Rodham Clinton´s handling of the 2012 assault on U.S. installations in Benghazi, Libya. The criticism of Clinton over the deadly attacks appears to be a preview of what the former secretary of state can expect should she pursue a presidential bid in 2016.(Snip)At the same time, more personal accusations have been laid against Clinton by OPSEC (military slang for "operational security"), a group of former special forces and intelligence operatives that

Comments:
Hosenball is clearly in the Hillary camp but has to play it straight when it comes to quoting OPSEC. Still, he characterizes OPSEC´s damning report as an attack from the right.

A barrage is what the people on the ground in Benghazi faced, while the president and secretary of state did nothing to help him. Both should be put through the wringer for how they handled it. Hillary should never hold any government position again.

Ohhh, how sad. Yes, those "right-wingers" are so mean. s/

I hope it is a barrage, a salvo, and that it never ceases!

Let´s see, Hosenball is a former producer for Dateline NBC and writer for Newsweek. He now works for "far right" Reuters. Hmmm...

So he has an opinion about the Right´s scurrilous attack on Hillary Clinton over the preventable deaths of four Americans. I´m sure he´ll be at least as fair and balanced as Chris Matthews. /s

I´d say we should send him back to Britain but since they deported him in 1977 we can´t.

Don´t ever forget the power of the Monthly Government Check! It trumps the lives of the unborn, it trumps family values, it trumps the death of soldiers.
Democrats will never vote for a Republican as long as they are on the government doll and people like Hillary put fear in their minds of losing those checks.
It will take more to defeat Hillary than logic, facts or truth.

Yep, it looks like PIAPS, the hero of Kosovo, has opened a real can of Whoop...ar$$ on her self.

When you get spooks and special operations, who have the real truth about Benghazi, against you, you are dead in the water.

It the Clintoon style of getting the goods on someone, its their game by 10 to the 12th power against them...no hope for a turn around. Spooks and Black Ops know how to play the game, they wrote it.

The fat, snakelike girl is finding out that it makes a lot of difference, at this point.

She broke the number one rule in the military, never abandon your comrades on the battlefield, no matter how slim the chance of saving them. In the case of Benghazi, there was plenty of time and assets in the area to save those Americans. Hillary didn´t know what to do and Barry was stoned and incoherent, as well as not knowing what to do. Benghazi stained Barry´s presidency and will cost Hillary hers. Swiftboating is a mild punishment when weighed against what she did.

Civilians may fail to appreciate the sacred code of bodily recovery that is woven into the military ´contract´.

We will incur multiple additional casualties just to recover the bodies of the fallen.

Might sound crazy but it is a very ancient and critically important pledge when sending young men into battle.

Barky and Hill and all of their Commie buddies wouldn´t know sacred honor if it bit them on the backside.....and it is about to.

Unfortunately Lucianne has been ´infiltrated´ by Democrat lunatics. # 10 is an example. Even the MSM has ´admitted´ that Chris Stevens was gay. He never married a woman but ´may´ have married a man.

Very surprised, #10. In fact, only heard a small mention about his mother within a couple of days of his death, then nothing since then. Cannot believe the families of the murdered ones have been so quiet, except for one mother and one father. Fear of God put in all of them by Barky´s administration?

Gay or not, that´s irrelevant. I still remember seeing news footage of his body dragged through the streets by these Islamic terrorist scum. Hillary did nothing. Her boss, King Obama, did nothing. Benghazi still burns a slow burn in my heart. Hillary should face charges, not a presidential nomination!

The world is going to be more unsettled by ´16. Who knows where our troops might be by then. Hilary is going to have a very tough time selling herself as a "wartime President."
Referring to family, the uncle of Chris Stevens called into a local conservative talk show in Milwaukee the morning after Benghazi. He was very upset but little was known at the time. I do wonder why he never called again?

Semantic.genius, S I Hayakawa (LANGUAGE IN ACTION) called "slanting" a technique to guide readers into a pre determined belief.

Propagandist Hosenball´s VERY FIRST WORDS are,
"Establishment republicans and right wing groups", which leaves no doubt, from Hosenball´s slanted point of view, that these murders are only the concerns of right wing extremists, whatever that means. In other words, the rest of America is not worried about Obama and Hillary´s dereliction of duty.

Hosenball should consider changing his name to HOSENBULL ! HOSENBULL, the SLANTER !

This whole Benghazi thing reminds me of the Bay of Pigs invasion, when Kennedy refused the promised air support of the Cuban freedom fighters. I´ve read about the U.S. pilots frustration at being told they couldn´t help the invaders, as they watched them being slaughtered on the beaches. So there is a precedent for the dems to run out on our people.

I agree with #21 about the irrelevancy of Chris Stevens´ sexual persuasion. He was only one of a large group at the embassy who were totally abandoned at the order of Obama, PIAPS, et al.

Further, the very same group of attackers who were photographed so wantonly desecrating the body of the ambassador were, at first, reported by the MSM as trying to help him get medical aid. I distinctly remember hearing that report on the radio.

FTA: "Close Clinton adviser Phillipe Reines declined request for comment, pointing instead to a TV interview in which he said Clinton believed that U.S. diplomats had to operate in potentially dangerous places like Benghazi.
Clinton, Reines said then, was "proud of what she has done to ... handle and to improve and to try to prevent" a repetition of a Benghazi-type incident. "And I would think that, again, in the context of trying to be constructive to prevent this from happening again, which is the most important thing, is not to make it a political football."

Typical liberal, sloppy reporting. "Here´s the comment that they didn´t make." It´s like Lois Lehner testifying to her innocense just before refusing to testify.

WASHINGTON — Stepping into a heated debate within the nation’s intelligence agencies, President Obama has decided that when the National Security Agency discovers major flaws in Internet security, it should — in most circumstances — reveal them to assure that they will be fixed, rather than keep mum so that the flaws can be used in espionage or cyberattacks, senior administration officials said Saturday. But Mr. Obama carved a broad exception for “a clear national security or law enforcement need,” the officials said, a loophole that is likely to allow the N.S.A. to continue to exploit security flaws both to crack

The BLM says the animals have been illegally grazing on public lands for 20 years. The BLM made the announcement Saturday morning, a week after rangers started gathering the animals from land near Gold Butte. The agency says it is concerned about the safety of its employees and the public. Earlier this week, BLM officers and supporters of the Bundy family were involved in a scuffle. Cliven Bundy´s son, Ammon Bundy, was tased twice by federal agents. Another woman said

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

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

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

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

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

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one
