(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 Clintons 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 Secretarys schedule, showing that Thursdays 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.
Why wasn’t this canceled? A celebration” with the Libyan Ambassador? How grotesque.
Celebrating killing of Americans?
did stevens have any personal contact with obama in chicago or dc?
Wonder if there photos from this...celebration?
I guess she was too busy to answer the phone at 3 AM. We know her boss was out of town so he couldn’t answer the phone.
Hello, Hello, is there anybody out there.
That begs the question: What would it have taken for the event to have been cancelled?
I have lost all hope for our country to survive as a Constitutional Republic.
God have mercy on us.
Quit kissing these SOB’s @$$es, you stupid, fat cow!
I doubt if Zero order her to do this. I am sure it would be her prerogative to cancel the celebration to show both grieve and displeasure with Libya's lack of control. She didn't ,again demonstrating her utter deafness to “the art of politics”.
What is her appeal? I know moderate (meaning somewhat reasonable!) Rats who adore her. Yes mostly women. Why independents love her completely baffles me.
Are there any pictures of Obama eating during Ramadan?
Hillary’s Ramadan meeting with Libya’s ambassador won’t be so bad if she also invites the ambassador from Israel to join her tomorrow night to celebrate Rosh Hashanah.
But that’s the last thing Hillary will do, since it would give Israel’s ambassador the opportunity to discuss the issues Netanyahu wanted to discuss with Obama during Netanyahu’s trip to the U.N. at the end of this month, at a meeting which Obama firmly rejected.
Hillary Clinton is an old OLD plitical hack, made of the same stuff Obama is,a socialist/marxist to the bone. Her college law paper was on Alinsky, socialist,marxist purist. It said in many ways how she, Hillary Clinton admired him and his work. Should she EVER gain control of the country like Obama has, she will be no different, and the ends will amount to the same. Her husband, ex President Bill Clinton is the same, only his outside play often takes more of his apt attention. President Obama and his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, showed their intent interplay yesterday and America, wept. Our Founding Fathers turned over in their graves.
