Benghazi Bombshell Drops On Obama, Hillary
Fox Nation (via The Hill) ^ | April 23 | Staff

Posted on 04/23/2013 1:41:39 PM PDT by JesseWatters

Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) on Tuesday unveiled a report on last's year attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, that blames then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for lapses in security. The 46-page report by the five committees of jurisdiction concludes that reductions in security levels prior to the attack that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were approved at the highest levels of the State Department, including by Clinton herself.

Yeah, but what difference does it make?

If a bombshell drops in the forest and no one is there to hear it, did it drop?

Nothing to hear here, move along now. MSM will take care of this (bury it quietly).

I knew she was going under the bus. Convenient for 0bama she’s no longer Sec State. Nothing sticks on him in the media, Hillary gets the fallout and hurts any political ambition she still had.

I would really rather have Boner and company have an actual plan to do something about Obama and Hillary. What’s this going to result in them actually doing against Obama and Hillary?

Bupkis. And that’s exactly what Boner wants to do. Nothing.

What have we learned over 20 years?

That Hillary’s survival instincts make a honey-badger seem like a bicurious hair-dresser. This woman will call in favors and conjure up scandal hell-fire and by the time she’s finished there will be a 10-foot smoking hole and Morrocco Bomber will be reduced to door-opener at a casino, or swinging his watch around on a chain in alley games of dice.

WE NEED POPCORN...!

The person to go away in quiet dignity will be HILLARY...?

N*gga pleazzzze..!

OK, sarcasm, I know, but Travis McGee wrote about the “cross-border authority” that the President had to approve for US miltary forces to pass an international border. Lots of discussion about that during the aftermath of the Benghazi attack here on FR.

It’s sick isnt it, how we who are truly following along can KNOW, that this story will be buried by the complacent lapdog media?

Sometimes I feel like a broken record (and just about as useless) repeating the same thing over and over again. And maybe that even makes me “insane”, expecting a different result.

How do they sleep at night? Or maybe I should ask, “how can a conscience become so seared?”

We all KNOW if this were a Republican president this would be front page news since 9/11 of last year.

Again, how they can sleep at night KNOWING they are so biased is truly a mystery.

Ponderous man ponderous.

No, by stonewalling the investigations, the feral government has once again beat the clock.

The Pubs need to take off the kid gloves and start subpoenaing information and holding people in contempt if they don't produce it very quickly.

pg 23

When draft talking points were sent to officials throughout the Executive Branch, senior State Department officials requested the talking points be changed to avoid criticism for ignoring the threat environment in Benghazi.

Specifically, State Department emails reveal senior officials had “serious concerns” about the talking points, because Members of Congress might attack the State Department for “not paying attention to Agency warnings” about the growing threat in Benghazi.
56
This process to alter the talking points can only be construed as a deliberate effort to mislead Congress and the American people.

HRC has been implicated in a number of treacherous criminal acts dating back decades, but nothing seems to stick. I’ve never doubted she was an evil bitch and this is just another chapter. We’ll see in 2016 just how far this Country has fallen as she and beelzebubba push for the white hut - IF Hussein decides to relinquish his crown.

To: JesseWatters; All

When will people stop calling Benghazi a “consulate” ..??

It was no such thing. In reality it was a CIA station (per a general who appears often on FOX); At this station, they were funneling guns for the Syrian rebels through Turkey. That’s why there was a guy from Turkey at the station meeting with the Ambassador.

Security had been cut so as not to draw attention to what we were doing there .. how about “Fast & Furious II”.

Was the President selling guns to A-Q (because they were in Syria infiltrating the rebels), and aren’t these the same people who were killing our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan ..??

Somebody needs to wrap this treachery around Obama’s and Hillary’s necks.

The “RUMOR” which was circulated right after the attack was that Russia was upset with Obama for lying about supplying arms to the rebels (there was a news story saying American weapons had been found in Syria); so Russia hired a local group of A-Q in Benghazi to take out the facility. Since it was NOT a “consulate” (meaning US property) .. but just a couple of rented buildings, Russia knew Obama would do NOTHING.

While there has not been the slighest confirmation of that RUMOR, it sure makes more sense to me than anything else this admin has put forth so far.

And .. it does make me wonder .. is this part of the reason why nobody has been given access to any of the other people at the station who were rescued that night; some of whom were in the hospital. What did these people know ..??, and did they know about the Russians hiring the A-Q group.

And .. even though it has been noted by some that a few of these people have now been interviewed, we have not heard ONE SINGLE WORD about their statements. Doesn’t that make anybody the least bit curious ..??

THIS WHOLE MESS STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN.

When this story first broke...I happened to go to the State Dept website to see the "Benghazi" page...to see who was listed as personnel...

All consulates are listed by country..

Yup.. nothing on Benghazi...

That was the very first of many lies out of this administration...
