Hillary Celebrates End of Ramadan at State Department with Libyan Ambassador

Hillary Celebrates End of Ramadan at State Department with Libyan Ambassador By Penny Starr September 14, 2012

(CNSNews.com) – At an event officials say was planned before the attacks in Libya that killed four Americans on Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Libyan Ambassador to the U.S., Ali Aujali, celebrated the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan at the State Department on Thursday.

The Eid ul-Fitr reception was held almost a month after the official end of the month on Aug. 19, delayed, officials say, because of Clinton’s travel schedule.

“The date [of the reception] was set purely because of scheduling considerations, especially given lengthy travel abroad recently,” a State Department spokesman told CNSNews.com via email.

The spokesman provided a copy of the Secretary’s schedule, showing that Thursday’s event was scheduled about 24 hours ahead of the attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi that resulted in the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

“Although I am many weeks overdue in saying it: Eid Mubarak,” Clinton said. “No matter how belated we are honoring Eid and the end of Ramadan, this is a cherished tradition here at the State Department.”

Clinton acknowledged the deaths, saying, “Tonight, our gathering is more somber than any of us would like. This comes during sad and difficult days for the State Department family.

The same ambassador who told Greta Van Susteren that people who denigrate others’ religions are terrorists, too.

Maybe she should have him beat to a bloody pulp, violently rape hime, then finish him off while dragging his dead corpse through city streets...just like what was done to US Ambassador Christ Stevens.

Oh - wait - it is Hate-filled Muslims who carry out such nasty and brutal acts. My bad...

Then again - Hillary can be awfully “manly”...

Why the surprise?

This administration (and the previous one) sold out to the muslims a long time ago.

Yeah, she could probably handle that.

Or she could get Janet Reno, Janet Napolitano, that General from Abu Garab; Janis Karpinski, or any number of willing CMBDs from the RAT-ranks to do the job.

Why doesn’t she go to Dover and dance around the coffins.

Maybe she is waiting until they bury these 4 people so she can pee on their graves.

Doesn’t she have any common sense at all? Is she really this stupid?? Or is it her Muslim Body Girl that is causing all this Muslim azz kissing.

Is it any wonder why 9-11-2001 occurred?

I often blame Perot for #ing things up, but ultimately, it was not his policy that facilitated the attacks.

“violently rape him”

Well,,, if he was “violently raped” like Gaddaffi(sp) was, they used an 8” stiletto to carve up his guts, before murdering him.

No, they just slaughtered a U.S. Ambassador. We should've celebrated the end of ramadan by nuking Mecca, Benghazi, Islamabad, Tehran, Damascus, Cairo, and Dodoma.

As kind of a commemoration of all the people the followers of muhammad (piss be upon him) have killed.

Imagine if our response to the Pearl Harbor attack was:

The Japanese are people of peace. Let's have a gathering and celebrate their culture.

The only thing that is newly evident since 9-11-2001 is the self-loathing that has paralyzed the Country's good judgement.

It is time to kick the commie scumbags destroying our Country to the curb!

No, they slaughter a goat and hang the body parts around their homes on the outside to rot. The smell of death is to celebrate Eid, the celebration when they will kill all the infidels on the earth.

Yes, Hillery just celebrated the destruction of America. She is either a Traitor, or a Fool.

No matter which way she is, she is not suitable as a diplomat. She should be fired IMMEDIATELY. But she won’t be because the rest of our Government is either Traitors or Fools. Time to face the facts folks. Congress is a feral pack of dogs that don’t hunt, just kill and destroy.

Hillary is smiling because she's had *practice* in lying to cover sexual assaults, if Juanita Brodderick is to be believed.

And as for the accounts that the Ambassador died of smoke inhalation, she's got that covered, too.

Remember what she said about when she first learned of Monica?

"Gasping for air, I could hardly breathe."

BTW, isn't her long time, errr, sidekick, Huma Abedin, connected in a big way to the Muslim Brotherhood by family ties?

“This couldn’t have been cancelled? This is nauseating. What’s wrong with these people?”

The American left is trying to separate Muslims from their faith; it worked with most Catholics, but I don’t think they’ll have any success with Muslims. Catholics were allowed to publicly dissent (without repercussions) by a hierarchy that had lost faith itself; Islam won’t make the same mistake.
