Clinton Raps Benghazi Critics for
Refusing to ´Accept the Facts´

Associated Press, by Matthew Lee

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 2/1/2013 10:08:17 AM

WASHINGTON — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is leaving office with a slap at critics of the Obama administration´s handling of the September attack on a U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya. She told The Associated Press that critics of the administration´s handling of the attack don´t live in an "evidence-based world" and their refusal to "accept the facts" is unfortunate and regrettable for the political system. In her last one-on-one interview before she steps down on Friday, Clinton told the AP that the attack in Benghazi was the low point of her time as America´s top diplomat.

Comments:
"critics of the administration´s handling of the attack don´t live in an "evidence-based world"?? Really? It is outrageous how they insult our intelligence.

To the left whatever dribble and drool drips from the elites mouths are the only "facts" anyone should ever be allowed to know. Carefully chosen and tailored, PR and focus group tested facts are the only ones that count.

The corrolary is , of course, that any other "fact" affered by anyone else is a "lie" or the current favorite: "not reality based". whatever that means.

It depends upon what the meaning of "fact" is.

The Clinton´s ability to stay on the national political stage is the best barometer as to the sorry condition of our citizens. Her 60 % approval rating shows us we have 60% ignorant and/or gullible citizens. Democrats know their politics has to be oriented toward useful idiots. The mistake Republicans make is failing in that regard.

Truth and ethics have no political rewards in a depraved and ignorant nation.

The problem is we ARE aware of the facts and they are UNACCEPTABLE ! We want to hear from the people who were saved and who are being kept in hiding by the Administration ( however that can be possible ). A lot of this does NOT make sense, even to those of us who are not conspiracy theorists. On the surface, it appears that illegal transactions may have been taking place, or at the very least, clandestine activities between the USA and
(WHO ?). The Administration does not even state that nothing can be made public because of National security issues, which would in itself tell us a lot. We want to know at the very least was an FBI safe-house involved and were we "running guns" to insurgents ( lets call them that ). We want to know what was going on in that region, if it can be made public, not that the Secy of State is a know-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing ,hear-nothing, incompetent official doing the President´s bidding, who in fact wants to be the next President, and who is certainly made for the job, loving to fly-fly-fly without
accomplishment.

Here are the facts, hillary.
You traveled to 114 countries during your tenure as S of S, almost one million miles.
And as the benghazi hearings proved, you didn´t put anyone in charge of day to day matters at State.
You refused to handle any matter related to embassy security, deferring, you said, to the professionals. And they were incompetent.
And after the deaths of the four people in benghazi, you refused to talk to survivors, because you ´didn´t want to interfere with the FBI investigation.´ That is absolute nonsense.
And you were not involved in selecting susan rice for the sunday shows, were not involved in the talking points, were curiously disconnected from your own agency.
Shame on you. You continue to be a disgrace to the U.S., Hillary.

Piaps and the rest of the Democraps live in a world of illusion, deflection, lies and inuendos, characters carefully crafted using perception and emotion.

There is no truth in them, none, they say only what they want the people to hear, falsly accuse those that disagree, and keep the people as stupid as posible so they must rely on perception and emotion to make their choices. Unfortunately, its working.

I thought she couldn´t comment because she was waiting for "all" the facts to "come out." Of course, one NEVER knows all the facts, especially when Hillary and her lying husband apply their much-practiced tactics of stall, obfuscate, mislead, outright lie, intimidate, bully, threaten, blackmail, coerce, terrorize, and arkancide.

Evidence based world. We have been given none because it really doesn´t make any difference. It is obvious no one was in charge of security at the consulate. Hillary and Barack were more than willing to sacrifice the ambassador and anyone else who died to keep the two of them from being criticized, especially just before the election.

The cover up insures no evidence ever comes to light. Four years from now we will know no more than we do now about what happened and why our government left our people to die.

At least Barack and Hillary made sure al Quaeda got our weapons so they could kill more Americans and westerners. Mission accomplished.

#1, there isn´t enough paper on which to scribble her lies big and capacious enough to cover that butt.

As in other matters, it is up to us to get the truth about her tenure out there. They are pushing the fiction that she has been brilliant and utterly successful. (the image in my mind is of her, swigging the booze)

Again, the people have been deliberately kept stupid. All they hear is this buzz buzz buzz and pumped-up (faux) excitement about Hillary! --to get people talking about Hillary!, the next potus.

(those eye glasses look like the ones she wore as a radical in her college+ days. What up wid dat?)

Someone i know was "talking" about Hillary! until i asked her WHY people think she´s so popular, what had she done? She knew absolutely nothing. Then i said, what about poor old Joe Biden? She said, "Who´s Joe Biden?" no kidding. i thought she was. she wasn´t.

And Carney comes out today, saying the attack at our Turkish embassy was "clearly terrorist", narry a mention of some outrageous video.

This morning on Fox & Friends, Brian Kilmeade rattled off a series of catastrophic failures of Hillary! (and hence BO regime), beginning with the failure to "reset" relations with Russia. This is what we need to be ready to do, otherwise Hillary! will be expected to be potus, and needn´t raise a dime.

"Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady -- a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation -- is a congenital liar."

and how can forget her utterly made up description of landing in Bosnia with Chelsea in tow for a good will mission

"I remember landing under sniper fire," she said in Washington on Monday. "There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."...Her account was ridiculed by ABC News as "like a scene from Saving Private Ryan".

This begs the issue, why did Chelsea go along with the lie?

Following up last weekend’s official White House photo of President Obama talking on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin, the administration today released another phone photo, this one of a conversation with French President Francois Hollande. This one comes from Key Largo, Fla., where Obama is spending the weekend before returning to Washington to host a reception Monday for the 2012 and 2013 NCAA Division I Men’s and Women’s Champions before moving on to fundraising events Tuesday. “The President welcomed the strong, unified stance of the United States and the European Union regarding Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine, including

While IRS officials were targeting Tea Party groups for special scrutiny of their 501(c)3 tax exempt applications, the IRS also hired a policeman who had been prosecuted by the Justice Department — and convicted in federal court — of using his access to the FBI’s NCIC system to tip off a terror suspect about the bureau’s surveillance. The leak wrecked a major terror investigation. He is still at the IRS.

Two days after a shocking defeat, liberals are still grousing about the Senate spiking the nomination of former NAACP Legal Fund Director Debo Adegbile to be head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. What really burns them up is not just that Republicans successfully filibustered one of President Obama’s choices for a government post but that six Democrats joined with them. But rather than take responsibility for putting forward a controversial figure who was sure to provoke bitter opposition from both sides of the aisle, liberals are reverting to form by blaming their defeat on conservative demagoguery and racism.

Top administration officials have directed 21,000 border patrol officers to retreat whenever illegal immigrants throw rocks at them, and to avoid getting in front of foreign drug-smugglers’ vehicles as they head north with their drug shipments. “Agents shall not discharge firearms in response to thrown or hurled projectiles… agents should obtain a tactical advantage in these situations, such as seeking cover or distancing themselves,” said the instructions, issued Mar. 7, under the signature of Michael Fisher, chief of U.S. Border Patrol. Agents were also directed to keep their weapons holstered when drug smugglers drive by. Agents can’t use guns against

WASHINGTON — In late December, President Barack Obama´s new legislative affairs team sent him more than a dozen recommendations for ways to improve his strained relations with Capitol Hill. The president responded with a few ideas of his own, including a request for more social events with lawmakers at the White House. It was a surprising suggestion from a president who has done little socializing with lawmakers of either party and has dismissed the notion that sharing a cocktail or a meal with members of Congress is a prescription for easing Washington gridlock. But within weeks, there Obama was, mingling

Obama and the sports figures were joined by Cyrus Walker, who is the cousin of White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. The president has teamed up with Mourning during several recent trips to Florida.

Is Mitt Romney getting the band back together? The 2012 Republican presidential nominee has invited his debate prep advisers and senior campaign aides to his mountaintop chalet in Park City, Utah, for a weekend of skiing later this month, according to two people close to Romney. The reunion of Romney´s political brain trust comes amid a burst of positive buzz about the former Massachusetts governor -- from favorable reviews of "MITT," the Netflix documentary about his campaigns, to chatter among some powerful GOP donors about another Romney presidential campaign in 2016.

Hers, however, is an eloquent silence. The most intrusive and potentially most punitive federal agency has been politicized; the IRS has become an appendage of Barack Obama’s party. Furthermore, congruent with exhortations from some congressional Democrats, it is intensifying its efforts to suffocate groups critical of progressives, by delaying what once was the swift, routine granting of tax-exempt status. So, the IRS, far from repenting

One of the most seismic changes in American politics over the last decade has been the emergence of a sharp generational split among the electorate. The Democratic Party owes its success in the last two presidential elections almost entirely to overwhelming support among the very young, which has overcome continued conservatism among older voters. The Pew Research Institute has dominated the field of exploring the ideological cleavages among different generations. And its latest survey shows again how the liberalism of the youngest voting cohort, millennials, remains firm, and likely to continue to recast the electorate. A few charts from the survey

Sarah Palin, the tea-party-darling former Alaska governor who ran for vice president in 2008, is leaving the door open for a president run in 2016. ´It depends on what it is that Americans really, really want in a candidate,´ Palin said Friday night. ´If they want a fighter, if they want someone who can so respect our exceptionalism, everything that makes America great, the promise of America. And if we don´t find that, then I would run.´ [Snip] Asked who her favorite presidential hopefuls are so far, she singled out Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul while

Barack Obama´s parents were "married in name only," according to David Maraniss´s 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. But since definitions of an "in name only" marriage vary, such as "a marriage of convenience" or "a sexless marriage," and Maraniss failed to explain his claim, it is unclear what he was implying. Therefore, Obama´s oft-told nativity story must be searched for the full implications of Obama´s parents´ "in name only" marriage. (snip) So when did Ann´s and Obama Sr.´s "whatever happened happened fast" wedding happen? For no apparent reason, confusion abounds among Obama´s biographers over the wedding date:

New York City lefty Mayor Bill de Blasio was elected in a landslide with more than 73 percent of the vote last November. Yet after only two months on the job, his approval rating has been cut nearly in half, with only 39 percent of city voters expressing approval of the job he has done so far. (Snip) But this is a brutal start. For a worst-case scenario, consider the rapid slide of President François Hollande—another far-left candidate who swept into office in a landslide. He saw his approval rating crater within months of taking office; it now sits at

The most dangerous parts of a flight are takeoff and landing. Rarely do incidents happen when a plane is cruising seven miles above the earth. So the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines jet well into its flight Saturday morning over the South China Sea has led aviation experts to assume that whatever happened was quick and left the pilots no time to place a distress call. (Snip) The problem had to be big enough, he said, to stop the plane´s transponder from broadcasting its location, although the transponder can be purposely shut off from the cockpit.

Kuala Lumpur - A Malaysia Airlines flight carrying 227 passengers and 12 crew crashed in the South China Sea on Saturday, Vietnamese state media said, quoting a senior naval official. The Boeing 777-200ER flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing had been missing for hours when Vietnam´s Tuoi Tre news quoted Admiral Ngo Van Phat as saying he had asked boats from an island off south Vietnam to rush to the crash site. If the report is confirmed, it would mark the U.S.-built airliner´s deadliest crash since entering service 19 years ago. Malaysia Airlines had yet to confirm that the aircraft had crashed. It said earlier in the day that no distress signal
