Clinton's Farewell Marred by Embassy Bombing
CNN ^ | February 1, 2013 | Tom Cohen

Posted on 02/01/2013 1:39:37 PM PST by rightwingintelligentsia

Washington (CNN) -- A final meeting with the president. A farewell address to the State Department staff. A terrorist attack at the U.S. Embassy in Turkey.

Hillary Clinton's last day as secretary of state on Friday seemed to be a microcosm of her four globe-trotting years as America's top diplomat.

The former first lady had a full schedule, as usual, meeting in private with President Barack Obama at the White House and then attending the send-off ceremony with clapping, cheering workers at the agency she led.

Those events were clouded by a suicide bombing earlier in the day in Ankara that killed the attacker and a Turkish security guard at the embassy. No Americans were killed or injured.

Clinton traveled nearly 1 million miles and visited 112 countries in her quest as secretary to promote better understanding of the United States and its role in the world.

‘No Americans were killed or injured.’

WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

So long, Hillary! Good riddance!

LOL. God forbid the death of a security guard at a US Embassy spoils Hillary’s last day at State. Such a pity.

Reminds me of all the stories about how unemployment affected poor President Obama’s campaign.

Poor Hillary ... tarnished by a bombing that wasn’t anywhere near her. Why must bad things always happen to such good people?

John Kerry is the dumbest human on the planet. He will now take responsibility for Hillary’s failures and can’t blame her.

“Marred” would imply she has had an exceptional tenure to tarnish. She’s been a complete fiasco from start to finish.

The going away gift is an old muzzie tradition.

Since they didn’t think Hillary would want a 6 year old girl (the customary gift for a guy), they one of their special bomb things and...

Oh, how’s that? She would??

never mind!

Reminds me of the story of when Hillary's motorcade at an airport (JFK?) hit a security guard, and the news reported that Clinton was unhurt in the accident. Nothing about the guard, because it's always about the Clintons.

If the death of our Ambassador to Libya due to State Department incompetence doesn’t mar her farewell, I don’t know what will.

That mean and inconsiderate terrorist! To pick this day of all days to blow himself up and kill a security guard!

Perhaps he was not fully informed of the seriousness of the situation.

What's this "Clinton's Farewell Marred by Embassy Bombing"? That's the perfect and most appropriate way for this administration to end the term of the prior SOS.

And yes, at this point, WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!!!!! That phrase should go on her tombstone. Along with "you won't find a shred of evidence on that..." and "that's so outrageous, I won't dignify it with a response!"

Clinton's Farewell Marred by Embassy Bombing

An appropriate end to the most amateurish foreign policy period in American History. Now we start with a Sec of State that already has repeatedly demonstrated that he hates this Country!

No, the State Department was marred, mugged, and boinked by the Hillabeast. She is a prime example of an Obamadork pick: dishonest, incompetent, and without redeeming social value.

agree,but i believe a record 8 embassy attacks during her tenure is a disgrace on top of the lousy job she did...just pathetic.

Your pic #17 - hillary looks horrendous. She looks like a barnyard animal/a hefty piglet with that bulging, swollen face.
