Hillary Clinton reveals what REALLY
led to Benghazi massacre - and
demolishes White House claim it
was triggered by anti-Islam film

Daily Mail [UK], by Toby Harnden

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 10/13/2012 11:28:25 PM

The State Department has said that it never believed the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was the result of a protest over an anti-Islam movie - directly contracting the rest of the Obama administration. By trying to distance her department from the inept and deceptive handling of the Benghazi attack, which left U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American officials dead, Hillary Clinton could help herself politically for a 2016 presidential run. A dramatic new account by the State Department reveals that Stevens was locked inside a 'safe room' choking to death

Wowser. All hell breaking loose. We should have known there was still bad blood between the Clintons and Obama. Especially Hillary and Obama.

FTA:

The State Department's insistence it never bought the story - expressed by the White House and Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations - that a crude anti-Islam film made in California triggered the attack gives ammunition against Obama both to the Romney campaign and congressional Republicans.

State Department sources have said that Clinton has never forgotten that Rice, who served in her husband Bill's administration, was an early supporter of Obama. Rice has ambitions to take over from Clinton if Obama is re-elected but the Benghazi debacle could scupper her chances.

After reading this and actual memo released of events as they unfolded, I conclude
*If Obama did not know at the 3am wake up call he slept thru for 5 days that he lied to the General Assembly as well as the American public.
*No way the attack was a protest

and impeachment should be floated around as a solution. Where will the NY Times play this story??

This seems a little like 'operation chaos' in reverse. Nothing like a little arkancide to remind us of Hillary's delightful political presence. I guess all those hints of insider mischief by Bill are perhaps true. This is certainly the wrong October Surprise from the Obama perspective.

To insulate herself for 2016? Then I suggest she answer this from Mark Steyn:“Hillary Clinton stood next to her friend Chris’ coffin and went on about this video, even though she knew it was nothing to do with that,” Steyn continued. “Aside from anything else, it’s a wonderful example of how shriveling and corrupting politics is — that in the end, her great friend Chris, his coffin, his body, assuming they’re not lying to us about the body being in there. They lost that, along with all the names of those in Benghazi who are assisting the United States consulate there. Assuming she’s not lying to us about the body being in there, she used his body as prop to peddle a false narrative.”

Too little, too late. She's already on film for weeks trying to get the story out that the video was responsible. Thank God for videos... the camera sees it like it is.

It's gonna get even more interesting after this declaration by clinton.

#11, you are correct. There were lots of rules changes at the DNC after McGovern's huge loss in 1972, one of the changes being the iowa caucuses date.
And after dead ted kennedy lost to carter in 1980, and carter lost to reagan, kennedy pushed through a 'conscience' clause so that delegates, on the first ballot, could abandon their candidate and vote for someone else.
So with a romney victory, which seems more likely each passing day, there would be a huge struggle within the democratic party, with hillary leading one faction (along with bill clinton, of course,) and a biden faction, and a chicago faction. It will be as nasty as it deserves to be.
I look forward to it. It will shrink the democrats in the legislature, and will serve up another socialist like obama.
But in 2016, the nominee from the dems will not be black. Not a chance.

Hillary's words as the bodies of Americans were returned from Benghazi:

"We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with."

So she wasn't telling the truth then, but she is now?

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on September 14, 2012. "We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that because it is senseless, and it is totally unacceptable."

The decision by the Obama administration to try to blame Hillary is bad enough, but Slick Willie comes across as even more despicable!

After Hillary stood by Bill as his Oval Office escapade with Monica Lewinsky came to light one would think that he would not openly support the moves to hang the stinking rotting albatross of the Benghazi cover up around her neck.

As much as I despise Hillary's "I consider myself a modern progressive" politics, can't help feeling a bit of sympathy for the fact that her for-better-or-worse husband seems to be all worse.

I wonder if anyone has noticed how the media is hardly mentioning the issue of character and trust with respect to Obama, but 8 years ago in the fall of 2004, the issue of character was of great import in the Presidential race. Oddly, it was not any matter of life and death.

It was whether a young Lieutenant attended all his flight physicals 30-some years before. It sure makes a difference what party a politician belongs to when the media decides what is a significant issue, what is a mere "political distraction".

Here is a portion of what Hillary said in her official statement on 9/12/12:

Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our Embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear – there is no justification for this, none. Violence like this is no way to honor religion or faith. And as long as there are those who would take innocent life in the name of God, the world will never know a true and lasting peace.

Many Obama supporters are saying they will leave the USA if Obama is not re-elected.Maybe ou and your filander Husband can go along with them if an Islamic controlled goverment iss willing to risk it.
I can imagine you covered from head to toe and Bill persuing his "hobby". In your case based on your most recent apperance, it could be an improvement. For Billy-boy it could be a cabinet consultant to the Islamic world. Start packing and take your Chicago church "Down Low" group participant closet-homosexual leader along with you.

Hillary's State Department "never bought the story about the film" but she had no problem trying to get us peons to buy it. And, somehow she imagines our short memories will allow her chances as President in 2016 to be good as ever.

Everything about Hillary is finally in tatters. The one bright spot is that Billary may decide to take Obama down with 'er.

#44 - Really? Obama has greased teflon armor - this scandal is just ONE of several scandals that *should* have brought Obama down. A republican president would already be out of office or impeached from several of the things that have happened during this presidency.

I hope Mitt can bring this up at the next debate but we are all still waiting for Obama to go down from Solyndra, Fast and Furious, Bill Ayers and Jerry Wright.

I agree that this looks really bad for the administration but we are reading this in a UK paper and not the NY Times, WaPO and other MSM sources whose singular purpose seems to be to get Obama re-elected.

I *hope* this sticks but we are still scratching our heads as to why all the OTHER scandals are now forgotten...

I may be wrong, lots to read and digest, but I think I read that the attack was being watched real time either in the White House or by Hillary, or both. If that is the case, it's unbelievable that they would go out for days and say it was the video, when they should have known the truth would out about what really happened.

Well, we had the almost 3 a.m. call and neither one of them took it.

The video story was a plant, an Obama production to rebel-rouse the towelheads. Only he can relate to them, only he can calm them down. Was Chris Stephens sacrificed? He sure was isolated. If his two friends hadn't decided to lend some security, he might have been the only one killed in the attack. Lover's quarrel with gay Obama? Dig deeper America.

Obama Lets N.S.A. Exploit

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

In a profile of Press Secretary Jay Carney appearing in the magazine Washingtonian Mom, this photo of the loving family appears:(Snip for photo)Cute, isn’t it? But, as savvy Twitter users noticed almost immediately, the picture is photoshopped, and not very well at that. The right side of the book case is a mirror image of the left, which poses a slight problem. A problem I like to call “disembodied finger of a child floating in air”! It’s a common photoshop mistake:

The teens responsible for the mob violence in downtown Louisville last month were members of a gang of middle-school students, according to an FBI memo distributed to law enforcement agencies. The memo, which the FBI says was based on "unverified intelligence," says that the gang — "Young ´N Off That," or YNO, was organized last summer at Frost Middle School but spread to other schools, and that its members are "armed in a major way." The FBI memo also says there have been "rumblings" about the gang showing up in large numbers May 1 at the Kentucky Derby Festival Pegasus Parade. Louisville

AUGUSTA, Ga. — The slow and awkward decay of the powerful aura of Tiger Woods continued here Tuesday on a rain-soaked golfing cathedral that smelled like a damp towel. For the first time in 20 years, Woods will not be here for the Masters, a tournament he has won four times, his virtual ownership of Augusta National symbolizing his decades of dominance. Yet his fellow golfers do not sound relieved. They do not act as if reprieved. They spoke of this giant, haunting presence with neither fear nor reverence.(Snip)"He´s 38 now, he´s an old man," said Jason Day, the media

Another day, another terrifying computer security vulnerability. A hole in a widely used encryption technology has given hackers a way to infiltrate many of the world’s largest websites and download sensitive information from their servers without leaving a trace. The problem, dubbed Heartbleed, has existed for two years, but was recently discovered by researchers at Google, setting off a scramble to fix it. Trying to track new security vulnerabilities can be dizzying, but here’s why this one is worth paying attention to: It affects services you use. The problem is a shortcoming of OpenSSL, which is supposed to protect,

IN A major development in the search for MH370, Angus Houston has confirmed the Ocean Shield has detected signals consistent with aircraft black boxes, describing the lead as the most promising yet. Air Chief Marshal Houston called the development significant, saying “this is the most promising lead, probably in the search so far, it’s probably the best information we’ve had”. The search coordinator told reporters more signals have been detected by a towed pinger locator deployed by the Australian vessel Ocean Shield. “Today, I can report some very encouraging information which has unfolded over the last 24 hours,” he told

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes?

Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
