Good graphic. Hil is a good Alinsky student making a phony comment to demean and divert.

What does it matter that dereliction of duty cost our Ambassador and three brave men their lives in a hellish attack, as they pleaded for help that was willing and available to come but forbidden to do so? Is that how she handled her “3 a.m. Phone call?” if it was the president’s call, she should have done everything possible, then resigned to protest this soulless political calculation.

Thanks to all the whistle blowing survivors. I can’t tell you how reassured I feel to know that Americans with guts, intelligence and character work in our government. It’s a personally difficult thing you are doing and I really appreciate it. I’ve got your back.

IIRC, way back last September or October, a gentleman, retired from Special Ops and also a Freeper, called in to Rush L. and delineated the procedures so specifically that it was clear, even back then, that the stand down order could only have come from our Caligula.

Thanks Nit. Hillary and Obama - both big Alinsky followers!
I can’t help but think that Obama ‘has the goods on Hillary’. She held back info on Obama, during the campaign, that might have helped her win. I believe they have all been threatened in one way or another.....

Brett Baier just said, the administration is “vehemently” denying this. Maybe we are asking the wrong question.......we know what he DIDN’T do to get help to these people, what DID he do? There certainly are recorded conversations or orders demonstrating what measures were taken by Obama.

“Source: Only President Could Have Made ‘Stand Down’ Call On Benghazi”

It certainly would make sense of hussein rolling over and back to sleep since he knew they would be dead by the time he had to go a-fund-a-raising. That way, the “situation” would be covered by that “hateful video”. And the press would cover for him and hildabeast.

Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering.

“My understanding is that we still have some people in the hospital. I’d like to visit with them and wish them nothing but the best but the State Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are—or even how many there are,” Rep. Chaffetz said. “I don’t know who they are. I don’t know where they live. I don’t know what state they’re from. I don’t even know how many there are. It doesn’t seem right to me.”
