Skip to comments.Hillary Clinton's Big Benghazi Lie
Posted on 05/09/2013 9:35:24 AM PDT by Kaslin
CAPITOL HILL - Testimony given Wednesday on Capitol Hill by Greg Hicks, Benghazi whistleblower and deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya, exposed former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as a liar.
Hicks, who was on the ground in Libya on September 11, 2012, said Clinton called him around 2 a.m. from Washington to ask "what was going on." Hicks responded by saying the consulate was under attack. He never told her about a protest outside the consulate because there wasn't one.
"The only report that our mission made through every channel was that this was an attack," Hicks said. "No protest."
In his recollection of events the night of September 11, 2012, Hicks stated that U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens called him and said, "We are under attack," just before he was brutally murdered and dragged through the streets. Again, no mention of a protest.
"The video was not instigative of anything that was going on in Libya," Hicks said. "We saw no demonstrations related to the video anywhere in Libya."
Hicks also noted that Twitter feeds were being monitored and showed Ansar al-Sharia took credit for the terrorist attack and had control of the hospital where Ambassador Stevens was taken.
Despite knowing Benghazi was a terrorist attack from the very beginning, after all she was briefed by Hicks who was on the ground, Clinton shamelessly stood in front of the flag draped caskets of dead Americans and blamed a YouTube video anyway. Watch starting at the 6 minute mark.
"We've seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. It is hard for the American people to make sense of that, because it is senseless and totally unacceptable."
President Obama Speaks at Ceremony for Benghazi Victims
Shortly after, when violence in the Middle East was raging, President Obama in partnership with Hillary Clinton spent $70,000 in taxpayer money on a commercial that aired on Pakistani television apologizing for the "video."
The American Embassy in Islamabad, in a bid to tamp down public rage over the anti-Islam film produced in the U.S., is spending $70,000 to air an ad on Pakistani television that features President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton denouncing the video.
The State Department said Thursday the embassy had compiled brief clips of Obama and Clinton rejecting the contents of the movie and extolling American tolerance for all religions into a 30-second public service announcement that is running on seven Pakistani networks. Obama and Clinton's comments, which are from previous public events in Washington, are in English but subtitled in Urdu, the main Pakistani language.
Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said the aim was to get the messages to the widest possible audience in Pakistan, where tens of thousands of protestors angry about the film tried to reach the U.S. embassy before being turned back by Pakistani police. She said embassy staffers had decided the ads were the best way to spread the word. The seven networks have a potential audience of 90 million people, she added.
The YouTube video was a “non-event” in Libya.
But Hillary and President Obama said it was the video!
If you cannot trust a politician, who can you trust?
And why weren't we on full alert all over the world...It was 9-11. And alqueda luuuuuuvs anniversaries.
Don't we have a Katie Pavlich rule? We should.
I can’t wait for 60 Minutes to run with this on Sunday. /sarc
I want to nominate Hillary Clinton to win the award for the most loathsome politician in the country.
Can I get a second?
President Barack Obama compared his campaign volunteers to the American officials killed in Libya, saying that ‘like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than were doing’.
Obama’s remarks came during a meeting with volunteer leaders in Las Vegas. ‘And obviously [our] hearts are broken for the families but I wanted to encourage those folks at the State Department that they were making a difference,’ he said, according to a pool report.
‘The sacrifices that our troops and our diplomats make are obviously very different from the challenges that we face here domestically but, like them, you guys are Americans who sense that we can do better than were doing .Im just really proud of you.’
i second that.....
Sure.......... Barack Obama would be my second choice. Third is a tough call.... Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi
In God we trust.
Hmm, a chance to potentially suppress freedom of speech vs. defending US interests.
Never a hard choice for a politician.
Well of course his reelection was more important to that arrogant pos then having the the embassy closed and making sure that everyone is getting safely out, just like the 2010 election, was more important to Pelosi and dingy Harry Reid then doing their job and submit a budget. It was the Republicans who had to do the 2010 budget for the House and Reid did not submit a budget until this year
We should have a gala awards ceremony, don’t you think? Women can get dressed up in tight little clothes, and men in tuxes and we can all rub elbows and flirt, and get drunk, and give awards to ourselves and these outstanding powerful people- (that way we can charge the taxpayer).
We can talk snootily about the little people, while we ride around in limos getting us to the red carpet, admiring ourselves and each other.
And we pretend to be servants to the United States, just like all the politicians.
10:38-39 p.m., 9/11/12. @StateDept tweets: " #SecClinton: I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. http://state.gov #Libya" and "#SecClinton: We have confirmed one @StateDept officer was killed in #Libya. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss." Hillary Clinton issues a statement, saying, "I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack." She adds: "Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind."
That was when Hillary herself took over the Cairo embassy Twitter account and personally posted. (anyone who thinks she wasn't directing the earlier Tweets is smoking something) That was at 10:38 PM Eastern Time. That would have been 4:38 AM Sept. 13th in Benghazi. About the time Woods and Doherty were making their last stand.
In this case, I think it was Obama who deemed that there was a demonstration. Hitlery didn’t go along with it, she did not go on the talk show circuit. Instead, she sent the stooge Karen Rice.
It’s doubtful that Hitlery will fold and testify against Obama. But if her husband doesn’t think she’s getting enough payola from the deal, he might fold.
