Clinton Bristled at Benghazi Deception
nypost.com ^ | 6/22/14 | Edward Klein

Posted on 06/22/2014 10:30:23 AM PDT by drpix

“Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.”

This adviser continued: “Hillary told Obama, ‘Mr. President, that story isn’t credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11.’ But the president was adamant. He said, ‘Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.’”

If she was so opposed to Obama's lie, who forced her to walk up alone to the slain Seal hero's father and deliver a face to face ratcheted up version of that lie?

Article with video of father's interview followed by excerpt:

"Father of SEAL Killed in Benghazi Attacks: White House 'Watched This Battle Happen' and Hillary told me ''We are going to have the filmmaker arrested."

"{The father} told Hannity he believed he'd been lied to repeatedly. "Hillary Clinton came up to me and I gave her a handshake and a hug, and when I shook her hand she said to me, 'We are going to have the filmmaker arrested.' Even at that time she was trying to place a spin on what happened."

What are going to believe the lying lies the liar tells now, or the lying lies the liar told then?

Maybe if she was dead broke, she would have just resigned the post rather than tell Obama’s lies.

Being poor can cause you to lose your principles.

Pfffft! Ok Hill, then you get your ass out in front of the cameras and publicly denounce him tomorrow or else go ask Bill for lessons on how to lie better.

This is a rehabilitation lie. She is always eager to fool the American people.

She is simply trying to reinvent herself (yet again), for her presidential run. Besides, she is cunning, but not smart. She is not smart enough (nor does she have enough regard for the voters) to recognize that the story is not credible, but she is cunning enough to try it.

I am not buying that.

The ‘internet material’ excuse came from the State Department statement regarding the riots in Egypt. That was before the Benghazi attack.

Per some other reports, Hillary was the one who originated the ‘internet materials’ excuse.

The Youtube video was 0bama’s idea? So how does Hillary explain the Tweets from the Cairo embassy apologizing for the video 12+ hours before Benghazi was attacked?

What does Candy Crowley think?

The feminist controlled media already has the script for the follow up and new Hillary campaign theme. It will be:

"Poor Hillary, once again forced to suffer for the lies of a higher ranking lousy man. If she, a woman were President such no one will have to lie for her!"

I’m curious what Obama will do when he finds out about this book from Klein, claiming the excuse of a video was Obama’s decision.

But, it may explain why Hillary refused to do the 5 Sunday talk shows ..?? And .. why Rice got the job.

Well .. maybe if we’re lucky, they will embarrass each other and it will expose them both for the liars they are.

Hillary’s trying to hide behind the “Black Shield” of Obama.

Maybe someone should ask Hillary if Obama was also the one who concocted the “spontaneous” lie with the 1st WTC bombing in 1993.

Uh- Oh,,,,someone’s pink Benghazi slip is showing.......guess that truth is somewhere close to coming out,,,and now Clinton needs her worshipers to distance her from her own actions.......

Hillary is trying to play a sad, sick, joke on the public. She is no better than King Obama, in any way. He loves dead Americans and so does she.

Confirm with two sources. This is part of rehabilitating Hillary. “Obama forced her to lie.”

I don’t see how this helps her as a potential candidate for President. Do they think the public wants a President who is willing to lie to the public for years for political reasons?.

If Hillary had an ounce of integrity she would have resigned on the spot.

Once again Hillary has shown us what she made of - excuses, a cold wet noodle for a backbone, and so much hunger for power she'll lie to a dead SEAL's father to maintain power.

The President was adamant? She was just following orders? Never, never allow this woman to be President.

Pakistanis didn't know about any "video" or any "insults" until 0blablah and Hillbilly broadcast this...

Obama and Hillary Apologize for Free Speech on Pakistani TV (taxpayer-funded ads) Sept. 20, 2012

Which immediately resulted in this...

Pakistan: 17 killed in anti-Islam film protests Sept. 21, 2012

0bama then went to the UN and re-inflamed the Muslim world once again over the manufactured offense "Innocence of Muslims."

U.S. President Speaks to U.N. About YouTube Video

Those apologies validated their anger.

I remember the words of one of the few that knew Hussein when he was in high school. She said he was a known liar and always embellishing his stories to make himself look better. She hasn’t been heard from again. He was known also as a foreign student.

Can we now hope the other chicken's in the yard will follow "chicken protocol" and put him at the bottom of this Administration's hierarchy...i.e. incapacitate him?

This balloon is lead. Who wants a President who goes against her better judgment for some other person?

To even put this spin out there, she really is in the dregs. She’s runnin, and she’s losin’.

Even America isn’t politically correct enough to vote her into the White House.

She knew about All of them. She even knew (obviously from bill himself) that Juanita was less than a willing partner.* She coined the term Bimbo Eruption.

*at that fundraiser where Juanita Broadderick found herself unexpectedly alone with Hillary, Hillary knew about the rape. She clutched Juanita’s hand, wouldn’t let it go, and pointedly thanked her with a vicious smiley face “for EVERYTHING you’ve done for Bill.” And wouldn’t let go her hand til Juanita was clear what that “everything” was (staying quiet). Juanita was so traumatized she ran from the room and threw up.

“... She hasn’t been heard from again.”

Are you implying something criminal happened to her ..??

Or .. was she threatened .. and simply changed her name ..??

As for the foreign student issue .. I have always contended that the reason a lot of people thought he was not a citizen was because he applied to colleges in America claiming to be a “foreign” student. This designation allowed him to receive money grants; room and board; books and supplies; etc. He’s therefore, always been a taker and he believes that’s the way to get ahead in life, against the awful Americans. I have no knowledge of whether he’s a citizen or not.
