Hillary, Here’s Why It’s Not ‘Time to Move On’ on Benghazi

JEDEDIAH FLTC 921Hillary Clinton thinks it’s “time to move on” following the release of the House Select Committee’s final report on Benghazi.

There’s a little problem with that. In order for me to move on, I’m first going to need her to tell the truth.

So, some questions for you, Hillary. Answer these and maybe we can move on.

  1. At the deputies committee meeting on September 11th at 7pm that you attended while the attack was ongoing in Benghazi, why were the priority issues being discussed whether our Marines should wear uniforms or civilian clothes and a ridiculous YouTube video, rather than a rescue mission?
  2. Both President Obama and the Secretary of Defense authorized military action to do whatever needed to be done to help our people on the ground. That was authorized before the deputies meeting you attended that night. Why weren’t the President’s orders followed?
  3. Why did you send an email to your daughter on the night of the attack stating that the attack was Al-Qaeda-linked, then conveyed the same message to the Prime Minister of Egypt the next day (including that a video was *not* responsible and it was a planned attack), but repeated a false story to the public blaming a YouTube video for days and days after?
  4. You were the first choice to do those Sunday shows where Susan Rice falsely blamed a YouTube video after you were well aware (via your own words to Chelsea and the PM of Egypt) that it was a terrorist attack. Tell me, why didn’t you do those Sunday shows yourself?
  5. Susan Rice was never briefed by the CIA or the FBI or the Department of Defense before appearing on those Sunday shows. Instead, she was briefed by political appointees. Explain to me as a former Secretary of State how that makes sense? And why was Rice perpetuating a falsehood about a video when you already knew it was terrorism?
  6. The Benghazi mission made repeated requests for additional security in late 2011 and early 2012. Why were those security requests denied? Who denied them?
  7. According to the report, “None of the information coming directly from the agents on the ground in Benghazi during the attacks mentioned anything about a video or a protest.” So, where did that narrative come from exactly?

I’ll “move on” when I get some truth. We’ll be waiting, Mrs. Clinton.

Whilst we’re on the subject of idiots engaging in incredibly stupid and destructive activities, why not address the subject of purported conservative, hypocritical poseurs refusing to back the candidate opposing the ghastly, criminal, amoral, megalomaniacal racketeer that the democrat party has foisted upon its either elitist or stupid base. So called conservatives, like messers Bozell,Beck,Sasse,Paul, Watts, Shapiro, Sanford, Levin among others are creating President Hillary Clinton by their intransigence. Do these people really believe that a democrat win in November would be better than a Republican victory? No candidate will ever please all of ones sensitivities and if Mitt Romney had had Donald Trump’s panache and bombast, he would have won as an almost certitude. All I can say is people like George Will had best change their sheets before they jump into bed. Good luck.

With less than 3 months left before the presidential election of 2012, it all made sense. It’s only more proof that “lying, crooked Hillary” is a seasoned con artist with plenty of years of practice. It will be a true tragedy for this country if she becomes president.

JB: As committed as HRH, Obama, et al. are, it would not surprise me to learn that the video that was blamed, was really financed by someone or some entity connected with the Clinton foundation or one of the Soros-funded groups. The blame came too quickly not to have been preconceived. Has anyone tracked the funding of the video producer?

I got a notice put out by Judicial Watch, some of which I would like to share here. I am a new AMAC member. However, before that I had already contributed to Judicial Watch so as to hopefully keep up with how they watch Washington, D.C. The article or notice I got says the Benghazi attack was known about by our government and they did not do anything to stop it. This is a sure way of earning our people’s distrust of our government.

I get very emotional when I hear any of our military and support personnel are killed.
BHO & HRC should not be let off the hook that easy. Jedediah, I’m waiting as well. My son was out there and came back home safe; we prayed every night. When I heard these men were out there without support and none on the way, I was so torn apart all I could do is cry and pray, for them and their families. God bless them all

If the report is read by all, you would see there is blame there for all involved, that does included HRC. I however do not know why everyone in the news media keeps saying there is nothing there.
It burns me up…

Hi Gigi,

The reason the news media keeps saying that HRC did nothing wrong and there is nothing to see here is because the mainstream media is completely aligned with the progressive movement and the Democrat party. Do NOT expect to hear either unbiased reporting or the truth when it comes to anyone in the Democrat party. They are loyal to the progressive agenda, which is to re-make this nation into another failed and bankrupt socialist democracy. Hope this doesn’t come as a surprise to you, but the mainstream media had been like this for decades in this country.

Two years and millions of dollars later, this partisan congressional grandstanding has been reduced to Republican congressman, Kevin McCarthy’s characterizing that this fishing expedition has been an effort to bring down Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers plus an 800 page report that states no crime, no cover-up, no stand down order.

Sir,
Re-read items 3 and 4 of this article and tell us once again who is grandstanding on this and has been since day one. See my comment to PaulE about the absolute atrocity perpetrated against an American citizen over that. And, by the way, the 800 page report exonerating Ms. Clinton was written by the Democrats on the committee. Who’s grandstanding again?

Hi Ruel D,

You have to understand that PaulO doesn’t bother with pesky things like actual facts. They just muddy the water so to speak. Plus it would also involve some degree of thinking. It’s much easier to simply regurgitate what he has hear on TV. He relies solely on whatever MSNBC or the other mainstream, progressive news outlets provide as the official talking points of the day and then repeats them word for word in his posts. So don’t waste your time pointing out things he doesn’t have any interest in knowing or learning. He is however an excellent example of what constitutes a good chunk of the progressive mindset and Democrat voter base in this country. So from that perspective, he does provide some instructional value to any AMAC members who can’t quite grasp why the Democrat message or Hillary or Bernie themselves resonate in any way with the American public.

Yeah, PaulO, and Attorney General Loretta Lynch NEVER discussed anything about Hillary’s emails or Clinton Foundation investigations with former President Bill Clinton in their 30 minute private meeting. Hillary LIED, it was never about any video but a terrorist attack on Bengazzi was the result and NOBODY IS BEING HELD ACCOUNTABLE for it.

Anne, the committee was formed in order to learn lessons from the Benghazi tragedy. So that maybe we could learn how to prevent future tragedies from happening at our embassies and consulates around the globe.

Instead Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy and other GOP committee staffers admitted the sole purpose of the committee was to try and politically damage and bring down Hillary Clinton.

They tried but couldn’t prove she did anything wrong. All the questions have been answered. Can you let those 4 dead Americans rest now Anne?

Hillary didn’t do anything wrong??? What solar system are you residing in? Parents and spouses of the Bengazzi victims were told by Hillary that they died because of that so called “video” instead of a terrorist attack when SHE KNEW it was a terrorist attack. Also, where was the response to save them? Who is held accountable? As usual, the Obama administration tries to brush it under the rug because it didn’t fit his lying narrative just before the 2012 election. Hillary should be wearing an “orange” pantsuit with a giant “P” on the back that doesn’t stand for Progressive either.

PaulO,
Here’s an idea for you. Get your nose out of the Washington Post for a few minutes and go to Politifacts, which is a fairly unbiased web site and get a few facts. Fact #1; Mr. McCarthy is not the Republican Majority Leader, he was in the running and has since dropped out. Fact #2; No other Republicans have “admitted” that the sole purpose of the committee was to bring Hillary down. There’s no need. She’s doing a fine job on her own. Semi-fact #3; Mr. McCarthy’s “admission” was actually one sentence in a heated exchange with Sean Hannity that was taken out of context and blown into something it wasn’t by the socialist media you love so much in an effort to try to stave off Ms. Clinton’s self destruction. I call that a semi-fact because that’s my take, you really should go to Politifact and make your own call. Better yet, PaulO go read the report itself. All you have to do is Google search it. Believe me, there are plenty of questions left unanswered.

PaulO, what a piece of work you are! As Secretary of State, the Hildabeast had it within her power to support the Benghazi requests for more security measures. The obama apologists tried to justify inaction on the Hildabeast’s part by noting that the Republicans in the Congress limited the funds for embassy security around the world. What a crock!
She could have incrementally drawn down the Marine guards at England, France, Germany, etc, etc to protect the Americans in Benghazi.

The Hildabeast is a execrable human being and you, PaulO, are a Democrat toady.

To all who post here,
Notice that Paul zero replied to Anne, who merely stated an opinion. I’m not criticizing, Anne, just pointing something out. When challenged by Joe, Rik, and myself, who presented facts, Paul was noticeably silent. He always is when challenged with facts. Just like all the other trolls. This is the way to handle trolls. Take the time, look up your facts. Challenge the lies. Then they go away.

Jedediah,

Very good summary of why the country should not give Hillary a free pass and just, as she says, “move on”. However, the sad reality if that the entire mainstream media has already decided, long ago I may add, that Hillary and the everyone else in the Obama administration that participated in this terrible act of will NOT be held accountable for their actions or the lack thereof. As soon as the report was issues, virtually every news outlet was busy sweeping this story under the rug. Now 24 hours after the release of this report and virtually every major news outlet has already “moved on”. They proclaimed Hillary innocent of all actions that lead up to the death of four Americans and blamed the Republicans for playing partisan politics. Standard progressive media response to virtually anything that has to do with Democrats in general and the Clintons in particular. So sorry if I don’t expect to ever hear the truth or an admission of negligence from Hillary or anyone else who has served in the Obama administration at the time of this pitiful point in America’s history.

By the way, I hope you’re not holding out hope of Hillary being held account for her several violations of the federal secrecy laws she committed as SoS. It should be painfully obvious by now that that is not happening either. Comey or others may resign over that decision, but the mainstream media will cover for Hillary once again. Not only that, they will vilify any FBI person who tries to leak the truth to the American people.

Hey PaulE,
I’m not inclined to second guess anyone’s activities when dealing with fluid, traumatic situations, even a Secretary of State. If procedural mistakes were indeed made, and they probably were, then, at the most, censure is in order, nothing more. What I do have a very big problem with are items three and four in this article. To publicly blame this event on a video was not only playing politics, something all of our socialist friends who comment on this site and others conveniently forget, but was a blatant lie to the American public, the use of which leads one to strongly believe that the people perpetrating the lie knew they had screwed up and needed to cover themselves. And what this article does not remind us of is that the maker of the video, an American citizen, was arrested and banned from making future videos based on these lies. That calls for far more than censure.

Hi Ruel D,

I would concur with you regarding any lapses of judgement during the actual attack, if this were simply what the administration likes to refer to as “fog of war”. However, the Benghazi facility had been known for months prior to the attack to be woefully lacking from the security perspective. Literally several dozen requests had been made to State for increased security forces and all were denied. Relying almost solely on local militia to provide security for an Ambassador in a known at-risk region is incompetent at best and negligent at worse. Obviously Ambassador Stevens was in Benghazi to facilitate some high-level, covert activity on behalf of the administration. That’s a given based on how the administration has spent so much time trying to deflect away any questions as to what was the Ambassador’s specific reasons for being at the Benghazi facility were at that time. So one would expect that either State and / or DoD would have had the forethought to pre-position additional security / support (like emergency evacuation) assets should the need arise. Again, either incompetence or negligence as we’re dealing with a U.S. Ambassador (high value target) and not some lowly clerk that State could write-off as an in-country accident or simply being “in the wrong place at the wrong time”.

I agree with you that the administration spent the bulk of the time during the actual attack on how to create a false narrative in order to not derail Obama’s 2012 re-election bid. The story, and that’s all it was a story, that terrorism had been defeated with the death of bin Laden had to be preserved at all costs. They also spent weeks after the attack propagating the false narrative (what we in the real world call lies) of a video being the cause to deflect attention away from their own willful actions or inactions the night of the attack. Yes, that calls for more than censure. However, that has been the case for the last seven and half years of this administration lying to the American people about a multitude of issues. The only difference with respect to Benghazi is that this pattern of action resulted in four dead Americans and no prospect of any accountability for it.

Yes, I find it very interesting that we are getting this kind of drivel from what was promised as the most open administration ever. I find even more interesting the absolute silence, or worse the defense of these lies from the very people who kept screaming “Bush lied, thousands died”.

To your last point, the left only makes noise when a Republican or conservative is the target. Democrat politicians and their shills are always given a free pass to say and do anything. Very well conditioned and intellectually empty drones that have been trained to chant on command, but remain silent until told what to say.

This might be off task, but have you noticed that they have 4 articles up right now, but have only drawn 45 comments between them? Two have drawn none at all. This article has been commented on by 4 regulars, you, PaulO, Rik, and myself. Maybe some of the other commenters are quietly going the way we have. Better pay attention AMAC.

Most regular AMAC members don’t read the articles that get posted during the week. Whether people don’t know these articles are posted or aren’t interested enough to check, the result is the same. Even the number of posts involving the weekend edition are way down, but I doubt AMAC cares about it. It is not like they are basing their “solutions” on the feedback members have supplied over the last four or five years. As long as AMAC members keep buying the insurance and related products advertised here, I suspect AMAC is happy.

The truth from Hillary??? … She only knows how to lie, unless to angrily proclaim that she’s always been innocent and the target of right wing conspiracies! … You’d get more truth from a bobble head doll!
