Hillary Has Even More Explaining to Do

Jedidiah on Hillary ClintonYet another Clinton bombshell dropped this morning.

Via Fox News:

A longtime Clinton confidant reportedly advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton two days after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that an Al Qaeda-tied group had planned the deadly assault and used a protest as cover — but despite this warning, Clinton’s U.N. ambassador went on to publicly claim the attack was “spontaneous.”

The guidance from ex-Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal was contained in a memo sent Sept. 13, according to The New York Times. It is the latest documentation effectively contradicting the administration’s early narrative that the attack was driven by protests over an anti-Islam Internet video — and raising questions over why officials stuck to that story for days.

According to the Times, Blumenthal initially blamed “demonstrators” angry over that video for the attacks. But the next day, he sent Clinton a very different memo.

According to the Times, Blumenthal told Clinton the attack was driven by Al Qaeda-tied Ansar al-Shariah members who had planned it for a month and used a protest as cover. He cited “sensitive sources.”

So, why exactly was Susan Rice calling the attack “spontaneous” on so many September 16 TV shows? Why was she linking the attack to a YouTube video?

These are the kinds of things Hillary should have to answer for if and when she decides she’s gutsy enough to face reporters’ questions. Her record as Secretary of State should be important, and this is a pivotal part of that record. It calls into question her decision-making and leadership, and merits explanation, much like her lack of transparency with respect to her email scandal.

Hillary, part of running for President includes having the guts to answer tough questions. Either face the heat or get off the stage.

Hillary could take a vow of silence and still thrash any one of the 18 declared GOP candidates on Election Day 2016.

Not only is she the most qualified candidate, the GOP is anti-most anything that benefits anyone other than the 1%ers

Hillary is an embarrassment to the Democratic Party. I am a registered Republican and I would be appalled if the only person running for President from the GOP had a record as unethical as Mrs. Clinton. Why aren’t other Democrats urging her to get out of the race?

Many voters are uninformed and apathetic so Hillary has been able to get away with ignoring the serious questions that must be answered. If the charges made against her are only partially true she will have committed crimes that make Watergate look like a trivial matter.

Most members of the mainstream press are very liberal and will not ask the tough questions that need to be answered. If it wouldn’t be for a couple of brave souls at the New York Times and Fox news you wouldn’t know anything about the Clinton machine of corruption.

Whatever you think of the Clintons you must admit they are smart and know how to circle the wagons and cover their a….es.

Hillary should be forced to talk to members of the House and Senate. She needs to be bombarded with hundreds of questions. I wonder if she’ll say she is innocent and take the Fifth. After all, Lois Lerner got away with it.
