Why Benghazi didn´t bring
down Hillary Clinton

The Week, by Harold Maass

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 1/24/2013 8:26:09 AM

Several Republicans spent Wednesday grilling Secretary of State Hillary Clinton about the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, which killed U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) assailed Clinton for failing to read diplomatic cables requesting more security at the consulate, claiming that it was a fireable offense. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) suggested that administration officials had deliberately misled the American people by initially claiming that the attack had started as a spontaneous riot. As Johnson repeatedly pressed her on why she hadn´t discovered

Hillary got lots of air time where she looked competent and capable. Nothing else needs to be said. The only thing standing in the way of her being the Democratic nominee for President is Joe Biden. My money is on Hillary.

She looked like a smirking liar.

Rarely if ever answered a question.

If the powers that be thought she was doing so well they would not have released the meaningless statement that the Pentagon had decided to allow women in combat.

Are we so easily minipulated into believing the msm?

Seems that way. Most of the posts I have seen here on Ldot have been bashing the republicans.

One has to wonder.....

It brought her down. Her statement about what difference does it make who killed our people will come back to haunt her. It already has in part in Algeria.

I watched the stupid hearings. Imagine...alternating dhims and repubs.

R´s tried to get in their questions. If they got in just one, she strung out her answer with irrelevant nothings and ran out the clock. If they tried to say everything, she just answered a little bit and let the rest go. They were ineffectual.

Each question had to be prefaced with the obligatory "Thank you O Great One, You are Worthy of Praise for your mileage" ad nauseum. Gack.

The democrats were fawning and eating up the clock with their turns.

What a farce. I should never have watched the whole thing. The stench and the memory are still with me.

Congress has shown itself to be as incompetent and ineffectual as Hillary and her boss. At another place in time she would have resigned in disgrace and disappeared long ago. Also, with the extent of the lies and obvious cover-up, this entire administration would have been brought down.

Of course this didn´t bring Hitlery down. If her husband in name only (HINO) wasn´t brought down for getting a Lewinsky at work and lying about it or an incompetent jerk like Obambi can get elected, then why should this country be concerned about our ambassador getting slaughter in some Hades hole? This issue isn´t why did Hitlery get away with it, the issue is why have we as a country given up on honest effective principled and wise leaders? Al we seemed interested in is someone that can entertain with a good speech or a heck of a TelePrompTer reading.

She just kept the wimpy Republicans on ice until she found out what everybody else was going to say, and then gave her rehearsed performance. By that time what she said made little difference to the large majority of the American people who have little or no knowledge of what actually happened that night in Benghazi, the liberal Democrats who run Washington, DC, or herself. Obviously they were all just trying to cover Obama´s butt until he could get re-elected, even Romney went along with that.

If my memory serves me correctly, Hillary Clinton, when she was still Hillary Rodham, was part of the Watergate team which brought down President Nixon´s presidency. Too bad that Nixon hadn´t thought of that "cute" phrase, "What difference does it make? We have to move forward." Seems like Hillary has changed her tune.

In this political environment, there was no way any democrat would dare suggest thet Clinton was anything but perfect in her handling of Benghazi. She will likely be the next presidential candidate, plus she and her wayward husband are essential for the successful campaigns of many of the democrat members of congress. A wounded Hillary does no democrat except for Joe Biden any good.

The media, besides being in the tank for the democrats love, love, love Bill and Hill. They can just recite the administration talking points while sitting on their lazy behinds.

The fix was in folks but cheers to the GOP members of the committee who did make their opinions known. At least some had a hint of courage!

She was GRILLED? grilled? she was basted in oleaginous perfunctoriness and sycophantic praises from slavish toadies.

It was a disgusting display of weaklings quaveringly and unctuously approaching the tyrant´s throne, and Dem/Lefties prostituting themselves on the sacrifical altar of naked political power.

Again, the Repubs do not get it: the incurious, intellectually vapid public has been kept ignorant --by the venal and wicked, brown-nosed media in cahoots with the Dem/Left-- of the facts surrounding Benghazi.

Stupid, fawning, silly, shallow "citizens", clutching their condoms and spermicidal gel and free passes for abortatoria, still think that Benghazi is "some guy named Ben Ghazi, you know, like, over there somewhere."

utterly disgusting

Until conservatives begin to influence the media dems are going to walk, skate, sail thru and get elected. The public buys what the lsm sells. Obviously we have no influence in Washington but we do with the local media, radio, tv, and newspapers. We really must start calling the local media providers and raising holy hell otherwise we watch and read what they give us

WASHINGTON — The mysterious American plane that landed at an airport in Tehran belongs to an overseas client, the bank that acts as a trustee for the plane confirmed on Friday. Scott Nielsen, an executive at the Bank of Utah, which according to FAA databases owns the plane, said that the executives had been trying to reach the real owners but “This is an overseas customer and they don’t operate under the same hours as we do.” Clients “can be an American they can not be one,” Nielsen said. “The service is used by all kinds of people for a

A lawyer who specializes in sex abuse cases says this week´s lawsuit against director Bryan Singer is but one of several Hollywood abuse cases that will come to light in the coming weeks. Today we learned of a suit against Bryan Singer, the director of the upcoming superhero sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past and a big Democratic donor, charging he drugged and sexually abused a 15-year-old boy back in 1999. Singer´s legal team denies the charges. Lawyer Jeff Herman, who is representing the plaintiff, cautions Wednesday´s suit isn´t an isolated incident. Herman works as a sexual abuse attorney who previously sued

One rainy morning this month, the man who thought he would be president boarded a train near his beach house in San Diego. He stepped off in Burbank, Calif., and caught a ride to a sound stage, where his on-again, off-again political consigliere, Mike Murphy, was waiting to shoot a commercial on a set that bore more than a passing resemblance to the Oval Office. Looking and sounding like a president out of central casting, he nailed his lines. The crew called him “one-take Romney,” and before he departed, they swarmed, extending arms around his shoulders and angling their iPhones for

Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

Ed Snowden, Russian TV star,

What are the odds? I mean, Vladimir Putin does a call-in show and one guy who happens to get through—to ask a question in English—is Ed Snowden? That is one amazing coincidence—almost as amazing as those soldiers who mysteriously materialized in Crimea turning out to be Russian. In a few moments, Snowden became part of a Soviet-style propaganda machine, even though he clearly views himself as a public-spirited crusader. After Snowden leaked all those NSA documents to the Guardian and the Washington Post, which shared a Pulitzer Prize this week, he fled to Hong Kong and then to Moscow, which was more than happy

Detroit bailout plans just paper over

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services. Detroit is facing

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

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

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

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

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

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
