Hillary Clinton Again Calls Benghazi ‘Biggest Regret’ as Secretary of State

BOSTON – Hillary Clinton reiterated Wednesday that her darkest time as secretary of state was the deadly 2012 attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Mrs. Clinton, in a speech to more than 3,000 people at a women’s leadership conference here, called the attack and loss of lives “very, very painful” and “certainly the biggest regret that I have as secretary of state.”

She noted that she had taken responsibility for security at the diplomatic outpost, where Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans died, and had pledged to do everything she could to ensure a similar tragedy won’t happen again.

It's all about her and her "regrets."

Not a word about ignoring the multiple warnings that the ambassador's was totally inadequate and that he was in grave danger.

She regrets that anybody knows about that.

Hillary Clinton is THE original source of the 'video did it' excuse for Benghazi, Cairo and all the rest of the embassy riots around the world. Hillary did it!

US Embassy in Cairo quietly deletes its ‘we stand by our condemnation’ tweet; Update: More deleted tweets!

Here is Hillary pushing it again on Sept. 13th.

Clinton: Anti-Islam Video 'Disgusting' (video 2:56)

Here is a 'senior administration official' trying to distance 0bamugabe from Hillary's f-up and at the same time admitting by inference that she was the source of the 'video did it' meme.

Senior administration official: The Cairo embassy’s statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement “disgraceful”

posted at 10:34 pm on September 11, 2012 by Allahpundit

The White House is disavowing a statement from their own Cairo embassy that apologized for anti-Muslim activity in the United States.

“The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government,” a senior administration official told POLITICO…

“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,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said in a Tuesday statement.

And here 0bamugabe and Hillary work together to try to prop up her 'video did it' nonsense and spread it even further.

Nope, she never said anything about a 'video.'

How can you regret something if you won’t admit to what you did wrong??
The slobbering media won’t press her on this but that would be the natural follow up question.

Benghazi as her biggest “regret” just means that was the least damaging of focus-grouped responses.

In the meantime, what is her biggest accomplishment as SecState or Senator?

Her only regret is that she was “outed”. She doesn’t give a tinkers dam about two former SEALS and an Ambassador and his assistant. Hillary is responsible for more deaths than just those and she really doesn’t care how many there are as long as she gets to where she’s headed.

If she really regretted it she would apologize to the relatives of the dead SEALS and our ambassador and then serve her country by retiring from public life.

She really only regrets that this might prevent her from getting what she wants, she’s spent a lifetime clawing her way through everyone and everything and now she’s stuck with the results of her own incompetence staring in her face. Can you imagine how furious she must be?

Benghazi attack could have been prevented if US hadn´t ‘switched sides in the War on Terror’
Daily Mail ^ | 4/22/14 | David Martosko

Posted on April 23, 2014 2:37:00 AM by Nachum

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Actually, her commenting on this for publication can only mean that her polling is showing that Benghazi is a major drag on her in the minds of voters.

This statement on her part is the beginning of an inoculation campaign prior to her run for the presidency.

The truth is that she was AWOL and her weakness caused the death of some fine American heroes, and then she tried to cover it up with a stupid video.

This ties in the WaPO’s trying to rewrite the history of Benghazi about 3 months ago when it said “the video really was important.”

She and her sycophants are getting data that shows Benghazi could be a killer.

What does she regret other than what it has done to her poll numbers. She hasn’t admitted what if anything she did wrong or who called the stand down order.

When Obama/clinton said stand down ( in other words, no help is coming) what were they saying…..regarding the other 34 people? She said, “you are on your own. You are a political liability and therefore we (obama/clinton) know you are going to die and we don’t give a damn. You are a political liability and if Al Quaeda killls you, that works for us (obama/clinton).

A regret? That makes the victims come back to life. A few years ago you had another biggest regret and as first lady when Vincent Foster died you said that was a big regret.

She’s a real pig...a wicked witch on steroids, terminator style. You destroy her and somehow she gloms back together and goes some more.

Some of the worst things in the Clinton administration were her doing. Wasn’t she implicated in Waco? Didn’t she have a lot to do with multiple cover-ups?
Some people have forgotten how bad the Clintons were - giving technology away via Loral, not taking out Bin Laden, etc. etc. We know she inserted herself as co-POTUS despite not being elected so have to give her equal credit (/s) for these things she probably doesn’t regret.

I remember reading that she said “I just want to run something”. Great - she just wants to run our lives and our world because her ego tells her so. She certainly is very impressed with herself despite her multitude of disasters. PIG!

“Regrets? I’ve had a few....But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do and saw it through without exemption.
I planned each charted course, each careful step along the byway. And more, much more than this, I did it my way.
So what difference does it make?”

She makes this whole episode sound sorta like a scary near-miss by a meteor:

She spent big bucks ADVERTIZING the scandal on Pakistani television —specifically in order to INDUCE the outrage and riots that would later give them cover and suggest these feelings had PRECEEDED the attack.

This didn’t simply “happen” to Hillary —she’s in up to her NECK in all of this.

She WANTED this.

People need to wake up to the reality that every now and then Hillary up and KILLS people, in this case four of them.

Vince Foster ended up in Fort Marcy Park because he showed signs of maybe not staying on the reservation about Hillary’s central role in the kid-killing final conflagration at Waco:

Killed him, rolled him up in a carpet, dumped him, then broke into his WH safe and stole the letter that spilled the beans regarding the whole matter.

........a liberal (in this case Hillary) has no trouble saying “I take full responsibility”. So, uh, taking them at their word (cough and barf), what does that mean? In Hillary’s case.........duuh!.....Do those words of yours mean you are going to restore the lives of the people that died that night? OR, do those words mean you are going to take away the pain of their children who now have to grow up without parents? OR, are you going to take away the pain of the parents of the young people that died that night? OR, oh, I got it, you are going to take money out of your checking account and disseminate it to the victims, is that what you mean? OR, MAYBE, you are you going to see to it that your 14 million dollar book advance is given to a childrens trust for the victims future educations? Hmmm...., or maybe you are going to sell the 5 million dollar condo you bought Chelsea and use that money!?

No Hillary, we all know when you say “I take full responsibility” what that means. It means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! And, the only reason you are now harping on it is that you are beginning to realize that your GENERAL incompetence, to say nothing of your specific Benghazi incompetence is, quite rightly, going to mean you have no chance of getting elected president. Thank god! For saving the country from that, perhaps an Iwo Jima type monument is in order with these 4 guys depicted on it.
