US consulate attack in Benghazi
'disrupted major intelligence operation’

Telegraph [UK], by Richard Spencer

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 9/29/2012 8:51:06 AM

The attack on the American consulate in Benghazi in which the ambassador to Libya was killed seriously disrupted a major intelligence operation based there, according to briefings by Washington officials. A large number of Americans whose existence was unknown to Libyan leaders were evacuated from Benghazi even as fighting around the compound continued. The new briefings admit they were involved in CIA or other intelligence operations targeting Islamist activity in the east of the country, as well as securing some of the more dangerous weapons with which the country is infested. The revelations are being used by Islamist leaders

Please note: Stale-dated but posted with permission of Staff.

Sorry I missed this (posted on the 24th). Besides intel revelations, it says Islamist leaders are using this info against us--more proof the admin knew damn well, right from the beginning, that this was the reason for the attack, not the video.

Note in first sentence above that Spencer reports the info came from "briefings by Washington officials." Has anyone seen this given deserved importance in the MSM?

So Obama lied for 2 weeks and blamed some pour sap in California and threw him in jail.
The truth follows so slowly.

I posted the question earlier this week of what happened to the 20-30 people who were whisked away from the consulate and never mentioned again. Now I know. How do you have the vehicles handy to get that many away from one location in a hurry? I wonder what the whole story is here. It's coming out in dribs and drabs. I hope the families of those murdered make lots of noise.

I'm sorry, I guess it speaks to the level of distrust I have in my government, but I just don't know whether to believe this. It sounds like one more excuse. I admit that I know nothing about CIA operations and foreign consulates but, if there was a major intelligence operation, and officials were warned several days in advance of a terrorist attack, how did this go so badly awry?

It's just another case of the radical Islamists knowing what went on there, the US intelligence services also having the scoop and briefing the President on what happened there, with the only folks who have been left in the dark being the American people.

When the pressure about lying gets too hot to handle this will be the excuse - that the admin had to cover for the CIA for security reasons. Although that has nothing to do with whether the attacks were preplanned terrorism the media will lap it up and carry the water for the preezy once again.

I read that a brigade commander arrested 113 persons, that they though took part in the raid.

113?!?

Apparently, this commander is braver than the pResident.

Mr pResident,
When you invade a country, put "BOOTS ON THE GROUND" or stay out. You did neither, nor did you inform the host country of your invasion, and now we have a murdered ambassador as payment for your FUBAR policies.

You hustled them out because you knew they were there ILLEGALLY and did not want the host country to know of your deceit.

BTW, This was no random act of a lone assassin. This was, as I read, a full out assault by a combined force of ....wait for it........trained fighters ........milita.
That means people with guns bent on destruction, not peaceful protesters.

This must have been a real struggle for life. I heard that the Navy SEALs fought 4 hrs after Ambassador Stevens passed.

And how's that Officer Brian Terry investigation going? Bouncing low level managers into retirement hardly seems justifiable considering you knew your AG does a "Sargent Schultz" when ever this is mentioned.


Is it November yet?

This is why skipping the daily intell briefs is such a failure. We are told 2 things, 1. He reads the daily brief, & 2 "He knows more than the brief". Now the briefs are written by subject matter experts, and are a condensation of very complex matters. Here is my take:

Brief: " We continue operations in eastern Lybia to accertain terrorist training operations and locate weapons stockpiles missing after the Arab Spring".
Questions: How are we doing this?
What is our understanding
with the Lybian Govt?
How many people?
And on and on. At a briefing there are questions and answers, either on the spot or in writing. Reading it over the morning coffee he would have to pick up the phone and call in for answers. In either case the "smartest man in the world" should have been asking a lot of questions. It's obvious he didn't

This just keeps getting better and better. A small band of warriors gets onto a NATO airbase and badly damages 8 Harrier jets and kills the flight commander. Same day, they storm the embassy in Egypt, tear up the flag and party on the walls. Still same day they attack the Libyan embassy, blowing up an intelligence operation and kidnapping the ambassador. Obama has succeeded in royal straight flush - a combination of the worst elements of Pearl Harbor, the Iranian hostage crisis, and the Bay of Pigs. And the US MSM manages to sweep it under the carpet.

#17, why bother to inform the host country when he failed to inform his own country's representatives? He did not even consult with Congress before taking action, much less get a declaration of war as required by the constitution.

Regarding not having boots on the ground, Hillary probably thinks that she and Billy Jeff did OK with their Bosnian war fought at 15,000 feet and above. A lot of this is due to that woman's warped thinking and advice. Of course, we still wonder how much intel is being passed from Huma directly to the MB and the Islamists. Those hellians, Hillary and Huma, need to be fired. "Sometimes you just gotta let 'em go."

I felt the same way as everyone else about Obit's missing the daily intelligence briefings, but it has occurred to me that the problem is far more basic. He'd not have had a clue what they were talking about and/or would not have cared. We have heard from White House Insider that those wanting to "brief" him get 15 minutes max.

He has the attention span of a fruitfly unless he is involved with watching sports, playing golf, ogling Beyonce and Jay-Z, schmoozing with The View.

#6 - if you believe in eternal punishment for injustices, then you must also accept that all such judgment belongs to Christ, and recall how what we pray for God to give others is also a request for God to give the same to us. Want mercy? Then want it for the whole world.

Thanks, #20. I don't know enough about the situation to deduce that Lebanon-based Hezbollah might have been responsible but there seems to be a similarity or two. Either that or Hezbollah trained Al Qaeda--or AQ figured it out themselves and informants will begin to disappear, or turn up in their constituent parts, just as they did in Lebanon.

When all is said and done, Obama has the blood of many people on his golf gloves.

Somewhere, a few days after the attack, I heard a report that the reason for the Ambassador and the ex-SEALS (perhaps CIA ops) was to find and recover US-supplied arms to the Libyan rebels that seem to have disappeared and perhaps fell into pro-Al Qaida hands.

Seems that Dear Leader(US)'s minions thought that the news that they had supplied arms that showed up in Al Qaida hands might have been poorly received even by the RAT-infested US media whores.

And guess what? I kinda guess that the Al Qaida types really weren't too much in favor of giving those arms back to the US. Their way of responding isn't to say no way .... they tend to respond violently.

Which, sadly, led to the deaths of the four. To cover up bad news (which, by the way, aforesaid mentioned RAT infested media whores seem to be doing extremely well) and insure the election of Dear Leader(US).

FTA- The paper said the CIA team had been playing a “crucial role in conducting surveillance
and collecting information
on an array of armed militant groups”.
It quoted an official as saying its enforced withdrawal
was a “catastrophic intelligence loss”.
Included in the 30 other Americans rapidly
whisked out of the country were
" 12 CIA agents who are now “scattered across Europe and the United States” –
something which is hindering the FBI investigation into the killing of the ambassador, Chris Stevens,
and three other staff.
The Candy In Chief has either been actively involved in the cover up
or is not in the intelligence loop because
of his preoccupation with tv watching , golf and rappers.
Lay-Z and Jay-Z.
Either scenario indicates extreme dereliction of duty.
Meanwhile, the gerbil media like Dana Milbank ,
Chuck Todd, Scarborough and Brian Williams
are focused on analyzing The View.

Unbelievable that the World Socialist Web Site provided a good deal of relevant information from the Wall Street Journal piece. (I didn't go to the WSJ because I don't and won't subscribe.) Here are snips:

. . . “It’s a catastrophic intelligence loss,” a US official who had been stationed in Libya told the Times. “We got our eyes poked out.”

. . . There is every reason to believe that the robust CIA presence in Benghazi after Gaddafi’s fall also involved more than just surveillance. Libyan Islamists make up the largest single component of the “foreign fighters” who are playing an ever more dominant role in the US-backed sectarian civil war being waged in Syria with the aim of toppling the government of President Bashar al-Assad. According to some estimates, they comprise anywhere from 1,200 to 1,500 of approximately 3,500 fighters who have been infiltrated into Syria from as far away as Chechnya and Pakistan.

The CIA has also set up a center on the border between Turkey and Syria to oversee the funneling of arms, materiel, money and fighters into the Syrian civil war. Given the relationship established between the US agency and the Libyan Islamist militias during the US-NATO war to topple Gaddafi, it seems highly probable that the departure of such elements from eastern Libya and their infiltration into Syria would be coordinated by CIA personnel on both ends.

The government installed by the US-NATO war in the Libyan capital of Tripoli was apparently unaware of the size of the CIA presence in Benghazi, though the agency was supposedly cooperating with Libyan intelligence officials in monitoring the activities of the Islamists.


There's just too much good info (quoted from the Sept. 21 WSJ) to snip. Go read it!

HELLO People!!! It appears that everyone is over-looking the most obvious thing. There is a traitor that told the Muslim Brotherhood EXACTLY what was going on in Benghazi - the fact that our ambassador was there was icing on the cake. The mooslims were there because they were tipped off about the covert intelligence operations. So, who's the traitor? - it was a joint effort - huma, rice, jarrett and the anti-Israeli that makes Cahtah look like a pikah - light worker himself - obambi. You'd better believe that this act of treason is what the top brass are talking about - outside the earshot of anyone in this outhouse administration.

This is sounding more and more like our intelligence operations have been completely compromised at the highest levels by a foreign power working in concert with the Islamic terrorists. The terrorists seem to know what we are going to do even before we do it. How did they know which helicopter to target in Afghanistan that had 26 SEALS being transported on it? How did they know all about our supposedly secret CIA operation in Libya and how did they know exactly when to target the "ambassador" and knew that he had little security? How did the Iranians manage to have one of our most secret and advanced drone planes given to them on a gold platter by somehow landing intact and in perfect shape on their territory? If Øbama was an agent working for the Muslim Brotherhood it would be easy for him to pass along details of our "secret" operations to the enemy. Why is Øbama trying to send half a Billion dollars to Egypt when it is known they stood by and watched our embassy in Cairo being attacked? Lots of questions and no good answers. Yet even fellow Repubs attacked and ridiculed Michele Bachmann when she questioned security around Hillary Klinton and her chief aide Huma Abedin whose family has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt? It sounds like our security under the Øbama regime has totally collapsed. The enemy could already have our nuclear codes. What better terrorist plot than to attack us with one of our own nukes?
Øbama and the MSM could then pass it off as some kind of terrible "accident". Americans should be very afraid if we don't vote this corrupt regime out.

The size of the 0bama failure is underestimated. Thus the number one priority of the 0bama regime is to hide everything. BUT, if the intelligence operation was so 'major' and good, why didn't they see this coming and arrange to either flee or have adequate security before the attack occurred?

This is yet another example of why we cannot afford a Democrat President with today's media - they are efectively a DICTATOR, because they have no checks on them and use the media to divert attention away from things they want to hide, spread misinformation, and scapegoat their opponents.

"DICTATOR" too string a word, you say? Well, what do YOU call an leader who can order an American citizen killed without trial, or can order the US military to attack a country without even bothering to seek congressional support? What else do you call the leader of a Party that used its majority to "deems" a bill pased at midnight on Christmas Eve that nobody in Congress has read? Or a Party whose leaders arrogantly ignore and smear hundreds of thousands of people protesting their actions as racists?

Wake up folks, we have to toss these people out while we still can, and then economically destroy the MSM and rebuild it as an honorable institution.

Every thing stated pinpoints one thing. Barack Obama jumped the shark by declaring he -- Got Bin Laden and became #1 on the Muslim hit list. He added more insult by adding to his bragging via the movie he dreamed up for his October election surprise.
He gave up the Seals to remove the threat then was stupid enough to target the
Al Queda leaders via drone assassination.
If he is being blackmailed it is to stay alive with the price that he allows any and all attacks against us without investigation or action.

2. Who betrayed the US to cause the death of Our Ambassador Stevens?

3. Did the Administration fully cooperate with the Tripoli government to hold this operation on their soveriegn territory?

This plot is so sickening, so simple and completely idiotic!! It sounds like the work of a flunking freshman fiction writer from Podunk City College trying to win the Tom Clancy Award for best wild plot. (No disrespect to Tom!)
We have treason, deceit, and every other uncivilized type of behavior going on. And my opinion is based on what I learn from the @#$%& News people!!!
We must somehow purge ourselves from these people and start over.

We also need a new, stronger, more definitive and disgusting word for a leader who is beyond contempt to the nth degree. The word "quisling" was termed after the Norwegian PM disgraced his nation to the Nazis during WWII. I might suggest the word, "obamanation" for openers. We could have prizes and let the "girls" on the "View" judge the contest. No? okay forget that. Anyone?

1. Richard Spencer has some other articles in the Telegraph that are worth reading.

2. (#38) The press reported on Doherty's mission to ''locate and eliminate MANPADS shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles.'' The article lists the number as high as the thousands.
https://rt.com/usa/news/libya-state-department-mission-147/

Makes you wonder where that stuff might be headed.

3. I suspect that Hillary and 0bama knew within hours who were behind the attacks. Rather than telling the truth or providing a non-committal statement they used the Bill Clinton playbook (embassy bombing, attack on Cole, etc.) to come up with a slightly plausible excuse of a video to deflect from their incompetence and to prevent American citizens from demanding action. The story only needed to hold up a few days until the next story was ready: terrorists committed the attacks. With the accompanying level of embarrassment, they expect the story to die. The real story may be one layer deeper: those who carried out the attacks were used by the US and its allies to overthrow Gaddafi--in effect making the US complicit in the death of its own Ambassador.

Or at least use strong encryption on hard drives.

Once upon a time there was a government which had become infiltrated by the enemy. Even the country's intelligence service was infiltrated. Behind the scenes, the faction loyal to its Republic was fighting the infiltrators who were led by an individual who had won high office in the Republic.

If you have the chance, assist the members still loyal to their Republic.

Fine, Libya burned down around the spooks, I can handle that... but once again I end up screaming at my computer as I read of one more bit of intelligence so carelessly broadcasted to our enemies... this type of detailed asset information should not have been declassified for decades, if ever.

Honestly, it's time for adults to be put back in charge of the country, and for good.

maybe this is the way for the donks to destroy Petraeus.

I talked to a priest from Africa and said that at the time Kadaffyi was co-operating and turning in his Nuclear parts.
He said that Kadaffyi had a different role anyway, He was sending out tongs to run the
Christians out all over Africa. A lot of Africa is Anglican or Church of England. So the threat to Islam is the Christian/Anglican
Schools and the Libyans ran off the Christians and converted the schools into Madrassas.

Those kind comments are very much appreciated--good to know I haven't yet lost enough brain power to render me useless! For instance, I was wandering about on the net a little while ago and found a very well-done timeline on The Benghazi Cover-up (sounds like a Ludlum book title). Please have a look--and you might want to make a copy in case it disappears or is changed:

#42, In an interview with Front Page magazine, Andrew McCarthy cites Huma Abedin's membership in the Muslim Students Association, which was created by the Muslim Brotherhood in 1962 to prevent students from assimilating in the US. Huma was on the BOARD of this organization, and worked on a publication affiliated with it, until not long ago.

She has worked with Hillary Clinton since being an intern in the White House in the late 90s. She most certainly, according to Andrew McCarthy, should not have a security clearance.

Another scary fact is that Obama, who has skipped many security briefings, also skipped briefings for the week before the Libya attack and for three days after!

I, too, wish to thank OP for her postings. They are always interesting, no matter the subject matter.

Former U.S. Senator Bob Kerrey thinks President Barack Obama, a fellow Democrat, was re-elected in 2012 because he ´sucked less´ than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. The Nebraskan straight-talker told MailOnline in an exclusive interview that Obama isn´t up to the job of bringing liberals and conservatives to the table to rescue America´s slowly choking entitlement programs. And Obama, he said Wednesday in his Manhattan office, knew full well he was lying when he promised that the Affordable Care Act would allow Americans to keep insurance plans they liked. ´He had to know he was misleading the audience,´ Kerrey said

The European Union (EU)--obsessed with climate change, cutting carbon emissions and saving polar bears--may have been hoist by its own foreign policy petard. Vladimir Putin’s threat to cut off natural gas supplies which supply 30 percent of the EU’s needs means the EU may be forced to become energy self sufficient. Wind farms do not have the capacity of keeping the central heating thermostat at a sensible level, leaving Putin’s new Cold War seeming literal as well as metaphorical. [Snip] The first energy casualty is the South Stream project, a gas pipe line under construction connecting Russian gas to the

Scores of pets have been infected with TB which can be passed to humans, it emerged last night. Ministers were accused of mishandling the crisis as the Government struggles to contain the spread of the disease to humans. [Snip] “They may have picked up the disease from the cattle directly, or perhaps from other cats, rodents or badgers, though there is no evidence to back that up, but unless you want to start eradicating every small mammal in the country, including cats, then you need to use common sense and deal with the disease at its source, in cattle.

[Snip] To many full-time Labour officials, Graf was the quintessential political passenger, and quite an expensive one. “He was wandering around the country, talking to people about how we’d win the election by sweeping streets and emptying bins.

A magnitude 5.1 earthquake struck near Los Angeles late on Friday, rattling a wide swath of Southern California, the U.S. Geological Survey said. There were no immediate reports of injury from the quake, centered outside suburban La Habra, about 20 miles from downtown Los Angeles, however, families at Disneyland were left stuck on rides as hundreds of stores and homes were ruined by damage. The area was initially hit by a 3.6 earthquake earlier in the evening before the larger blast was felt. The surrounding area was then hit by at least 40 aftershocks following the powerful quake that hit shortly after 9pm.

Fears of NHS Cover-Up as Hospitals
Accused of ´Fiddling´ Death Figures
Breitbart London [UK], by Nick Hallett    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 3/29/2014 2:38:52 AM     Post Reply
NHS hospitals have been "fiddling" their death rate figures by falsely claiming that patients were terminally ill, according to new research. The new figures, which show that the number of "terminal" illnesses have risen five times since 2006, have caused concerns that hospitals could be covering up for poor care. Every hospital on the NHS has to collect data on how its death rates compare to what would be expected, but if a case is described as "palliative"--i.e. the patient had a terminal illness and was expected to die anyway--it doesn’t normally count towards death rate. The huge increase

More than a dozen foreign nationals, including several children, had to be evacuated from a guesthouse used by a U.S.-based aid group in Kabul, after armed Taliban insurgents stormed the building and took at least four people hostage. The hostages, which were said to have included three U.S. citizens, were trapped inside for at least an hour before Afghan security officials ended the siege in the upmarket residential area of the capital. At least one Afghan child and five Taliban insurgents died during the operation, a military official said after the battle was over, adding that all hostages are now safe.

Relations between Washington and its long-standing ally Saudi Arabia have sharply declined in recent months over US policy in the Middle East--now even a visit to Riyadh by President Obama might do little to narrow the differences, reports the BBC´s Kim Ghattas in Washington. US officials briefing reporters ahead of the trip have said little of substance about what they expect, other than to say it is very important. Ben Rhodes, the president´s deputy national security adviser, did acknowledge that there were disagreements between the two countries. One of them has already put a small damper on the trip. On

Nigel Farage has accused the European Union of having "blood on its hands" over the Ukraine. Does that sound over the top? [Snip] Well, that was the EU´s plan and it has been working on it for some time. The Ukraine was to form the jewel in the crown of the EU´s Eastern Partnership programme, which would see Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus brought closer to the bosom of the EU. This was what David Cameron was endorsing last year when, at the time of Croatia´s accession to the EU, he described his dream of seeing a European

As King Abdullah’s power base

King Abdullah is paramount leader of the House of Saud and master of a fifth of the world’s oil reserves, but he does a good impression of being a simple man. When he was Crown Prince, his tent was open to just about any male Saudi, so long as they were not too flamboyantly deferential. An obsequious petitioner would receive a prod from Abdullah’s bamboo camel cane. “You’re a man,” he would mutter. “What are you doing grovelling on the floor?” The Saudi king is unlikely to have this problem today when he receives President Barack Obama in Riyadh. Yes,

U.S. President Barack Obama has caused confusion after claiming yesterday that Kosovo held a UN-assisted referendum for self-determination--misleading people over the true origins of the country. The U.S. President used the example to hit out against Russia´s annexation of Crimea, but experts have noted that no such referendum took place, and implied that Obama´s "incredible mistake" should elicit a retraction or correction from the White House. [Snip] One source said the faux-pas was "the very last thing Kosovo and Serbia need" as the two seek to strengthen relations. Obama said in his speech yesterday: "...Kosovo only left Serbia after a

Breitbart London has learned that President Obama has undermined Georgia’s NATO membership application, in the second foreign policy gaffe of his European trip this week. Speaking at the press conference after the EU-US summit yesterday the US President wrongly suggested that Georgia “is not currently on a path to NATO membership”. In fact the country has been on the path to membership since 2008.[Snip] The mistake comes after Breitbart London revealed that Obama had wrongly claimed “Kosovo only left Serbia after a referendum was organised not outside the boundaries of international law, but in careful cooperation with the United States

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

A startling rift appeared Tuesday on the Supreme Court as the three female Justices came out swinging like Brunnhildes — women warriors — for what they erroneously labeled an “entitlement” to employer-provided contraceptives and morning-after pills. The Justices were hearing oral arguments in Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., a case hyped by the Democratic Party as a test for women’s rights. Justices Kagan, Ginsberg, and Sotomayor sprang on Hobby Lobby’s attorney , interrupting his every sentence and pummeling him with questions taken right out of the Democratic Party’s “war on women” playbook.

Las Vegas - Many of the Republican Party’s most powerful insiders and financiers have begun a behind-the-scenes campaign to draft former Florida governor Jeb Bush into the 2016 presidential race, courting him and his intimates and starting talks on fundraising strategy. Concerned that the George Washington Bridge traffic scandal has damaged New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s political standing and alarmed by the steady rise of Sen. Rand Paul (Ky.), prominent donors, conservative leaders and longtime operatives say they consider Bush the GOP’s brightest hope to win back the White House.

The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

Where’s the beef? That’s what the carnivores were wondering as they arrived at the Boathouse in Central Park for the “Noah” party. The buffet tables were loaded with various forms of edible vegetable matter, but there was no meat, fish or cheese — because director Darren Aronofsky is vegan, as was the hero of his biblical epic, as played by Russell Crowe. To underscore the point in the movie, which also stars Emma Watson and Jennifer Connelly, villain Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) eagerly bites the head off an unidentified reptile and devours it raw. Meat = evil. Got it. As hungry Boathouse guests bellied

If Betsey McCaughey is correct (and I bet she is, because she has not only read the entire ObamaCare bill, she has written a book about it), Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan publicly humiliated herself during the oral arguments on the Hobby Lobby case, revealing that she either did not read the law, or failed to comprehend it if she did so. Writing in the New York Sun, McCaughey lays out what is wrong with the Justice’s declaration about Obamacare: she asserted that the statute itself mandates provision of birth control. Not one word in the Affordable Care Act guarantees health plans will cover birth control products.

Obamacare supporters are taking a bit of a victory lap today after yesterday’s administration announcement that six million people have signed up for private plans under the law, equaling the revised projection put out by the Congressional Budget Office after the botched launch of the exchanges last October. It’s a weak cause for celebration, given that success, according to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, was originally "at least" seven million people getting covered under the law by the end of March. And as an Obamacare factoid, the six million sign-ups figure just doesn’t tell us all that much

President Bill Clinton´s guilty conscience over his affair with Monica Lewinsky – and a desire to repair his shattered reputation by using the State of the Union address – set his speechwriters an unenviable task, newly released archive papers reveal. The former president appeared to be trying to butter up his wife, Hillary Clinton, out of guilt – or perhaps to fool her – before the scandal broke. And he was determined to try to convince the American public afterwards that he was still of a high moral character. The latest batch of documents from the Clinton Library covering his presidency in the
