Hillary Clinton to Testify on Benghazi Report (Dec. 20)
NewsMax ^ | December 13, 2012 | Thomson/Reuters

Posted on 12/13/2012 11:16:49 AM PST by Obama_Is_Sabotaging_America

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify on Dec. 20 before the House of Representatives and Senate foreign affairs committees on a report on the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya, the committees said on Wednesday.

The attack on Sept. 11 killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, and raised questions about the adequacy of security in far-flung posts.

Republicans have criticized Democratic President Barack Obama's administration for its flawed early public explanations of the attack.

They have also criticized shifting explanations of why talking points given to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice were changed to delete a reference to al Qaeda. Some Republicans have used that criticism to question Rice's suitability as a candidate to replace Clinton, if Obama were to nominate her.

It will be frustrating to watch Team 0bama SKATE through this dog and pony show unharmed and unpunished. 0bama bombed Libya WITHOUT Consent of Congress and all he has to show for it are four bloody T-shirts from four dead Americans.

Who and WHY was security at the compound reduced prior to the attack?

Why was Stevens even there on such a high-security risk day?

Why were requests for security by Stevens on the day of the attack DENIED?

Why was rescue of these brave men DENIED? Why were they allowed to die after a firefight lasting more than 7 hours?

Was Stevens a CIA operative brokering/dealing/selling weapons to terrorists, or the group that attacked his covert facility?

There MUST be an accounting for 0bama's whereabouts throughout this attack. A minute-to-minute accounting must be established.. Why was there NO situation room photo released for this event even though Sit Room photos were released in the aftermath of the OBL raid and even Hurricane Sandy.. Why no photo and WHERE was 0bama???

Why did Team 0bama insist this was 'a protest over a video'? Was this done to downplay the event so as to avoid harming 0bama's re-election bid?

Why didn't 0bama EVER (and STILL hasn't) addressed the nation about this event? Why the silence? WHAT is being hidden about what REALLY was going on prior to, during, and after the attack?

Why did 0bama dodge calling this a terrorist attack and instead focus on blaming the maker of the video?

Why did Team 0bama admonish the maker of the 'Anti-Islam video' but NOT the attackers?

Congress better play hardball with Hillary. Four Americans fought for their lives expecting back-up that never came. Four Americans were betrayed by their Commander-In-Chief who was more worried about HIS re-election than THEIR lives. MULTIPLE IMPEACHMENTS are in order here and Congress better damn well get to the bottom of it and stop allowing 0bama to get away with his murder of America AND Americans. In memory of the four dead Americans, we MUST NEVER relent on getting at the truth here.. It's time for Congress to take their prissy gloves off and hit HARD! I don't care if Susan Rice is black, orange, purple, blue or green. SHE KNEW SHE WAS LYING ON THOSE SUNDAY SHOWS BUT DID SO IN EXCHANGE FOR A PROMOTION TO SECRETARY OF STATE. Hillary set Stevens up to be DEAD. She LIED about 'protest over a video' afterwards. Rice LIED, 0bama LIED and committed 'dereliction of duty' during Benghazi let alone bashing a filmmaker and his right to freedom of speech versus the terrorist attackers. SO MANY impeachments here.. The counts are numerous.

Any bets on how many, IF ANY, of the words out of her ugly mouth will be the truth?

Congress is NOT ALLOWED to speak to the victims
of Benghazi, which heralds that this is a set up
for Clinton-Obama-DNC falsehoods.

She will skate because the GOP is inept and afraid of her.
The GOP knows she still has those FBI files.
While I am all for blaming the Obama administration,
don’t give the GOP a pass when she runs circles around them.
I hope I am wrong, but I would not hold my breath with the GOP
doing their job properly.

And she’s ‘TESTIFYING ON A REPORT’. Well, isn’t that nice. HOW ABOUT SHE TESTIFY ON HER ACTIONS AND HER COMMENTS AFTERWARDS.. NOT ‘A REPORT’. WHAT B.S.!!!! Why doesn’t Congress just come out and say ‘How can we help you get through this unscathed, Ms. Clinton?’!!!! ARGHHHH!!!!

LOL! Bingo. If there is one thing we all know about Mrs. Willie, it’s that she has a pretty bad memory. Old Jello brains can’t “recall” anything. Ever. Probably something she learned in college.

They will let her off the hook because they are inept bed-wetters. In addition, the media will also portray them as politicizing the deaths of these four Americans.

I am beginning to believe that we are becoming a one party state. The 'Rats, the media, the education system and civil servants are all in cahoots. Calls like Belafonte's to lock up the opposition are stunning.

Instead of taking her out early, before she decides to run
for King of America, they will fold like cheap suits...afraid
of her.
This is an excellent chance to take her down.
But the GOP won’t do it.

I’d bet that all questions and answers are approved and agreed-to, well-ahead of time, by the criminal White Hut/Crib and corrupt, compliant Congress. Limits and boundaries for both sides’ questions/answers are likely pre-set, on condition of ‘national scurity’, or somesuch crappola. It’ll be a no-answers, dog & pony show, revealing nothing and further covering 0bummer/Hitlery/Rice’s treasonous asses. I just hope some CongressCritter grows a pair, breaks the rules and goes after Klintoon. If he does, she’ll walk out and scream misogyny and racism.

Drudge had a story the other day that she’s been suffering from a recurring stomach bug. Probably has the $hits from one of those countries she’s been hiding out in, or because she’s nervous about having to testify. I’m thinking she’ll have a relapse just prior to the 20th.

She is an oaf. Her “testimony” will be meaningless. The memory cells in her atrophied brain will result in “I can’t recall”. She embarrasses her self by existing. What a slovenly putz.

No, we, the little people, don’t need to know what the superior intellects in the state dept are doing. It is for our own good so sit down and shut up and they will handle everything.

There was no way the Obama/Hillary/Huma regime was going to admit Al Qeada attacked them in Libya, while they were using Al Qeada Iraq as their main spearhead in their leading from behind invasion of Syria.

Now 3-4 months later, we know Al Qeada attacked us in Libya and they have admitted Jabhat al-Nusra in Syria were Al Qeada terrorists from Iraq.

Hillary will be the star at this hearing.

Perhaps the committee members can arrange for an appearance of some of the Bengazhi forgotten. Those other, forgotten Americans who escaped that night.

Who knows? There stories may be much more interesting than the lies Hillary will have prepared.

State Dept: Clinton may NOT testify on Benghazi next week

State Department said today that’s not a done deal.
.
Moreover, the State Department may not even share the report of its own internal review on Benghazi with Congress, a top State Department official said today.

Congress expects Clinton to testify Dec. 20 about the results of the Accountability Review Board,

WHERE WAS OBAMA DURING THE ATTACKS?

All this time and we still have not known this and the GOP have not asked.

Did he watch the attacks live time in the istuation room?

Who gave the stand down order and was it obama?
If so then why if not then who overstepped their ground.

If oabma was not told then why has no one been fired?

Why did obama go to Vegas?

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD, the GOP and the media have been AWOL over this and not gone after obama

why can;t the GOP ask the real questions like where was obama during the attacks, ?

Did he go to sleep as the attacks too place?

Did he watch live time?

Why has no one been fired?

Why did he go to Vegas if he knew it was an attack?

I could go on and on with these questions but yet again the GOP has no frigging balls to mention obama.
The media LOL OH PLEASE the media, they;re a joke and a mouth piece for the left now
