Posted on 05/21/2015 9:55:50 AM PDT by lbryce
A longtime Clinton confidant reportedly advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton two days after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that an Al Qaeda-tied group had planned the deadly assault and used a protest as cover -- but despite this warning, Clinton's U.N. ambassador went on to publicly claim the attack was "spontaneous."
The guidance from ex-Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal was contained in a memo sent Sept. 13, according to The New York Times. It is the latest documentation effectively contradicting the administration's early narrative that the attack was driven by protests over an anti-Islam Internet video -- and raising questions over why officials stuck to that story for days.
According to the Times, Blumenthal initially blamed "demonstrators" angry over that video for the attacks. But the next day, he sent Clinton a very different memo.

A “CONFIDANT”? FOX calls Blumenthal a, “CONFIDANT”?
What is with that? Is FOX backing off his decades of mafia like ties to the Clinton Crime Family in order to appear pristine and mild and without “bias”, in order to hand off this story to the Lefty media.
Grant it has more impact if the Left slings the gritty details at Hillary, but just, hmmm.
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
Why is this news?
The Clintons have plenty of earlier murders to answer for.
and it’s not like the GOP trough-feeders will punish her, since they’re all in bed together.
Old news! It’s just about sects.
Now Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, is going to have to declare “Sid Vicious”, Sidney Blumenthal, a liar with the “vast right-wing conspiracy”, and persona non grata.
Wouldn’t be the first time a long-time associate had been stiffed and dumped. The Current Occupant had warned Herself not to admit Blumenthal to the inner circle of personal advisors, and blamed if for once, Current Occupant was entirely right.
And there Blumenthal goes ripping out the heart of Herself.
Difficult job, too, considering how small and hard that heart is. < /snark >
I just wish the media, or at least FOX news would preface ALL comments regarding this “cover story the admin used” by saying,
We know the administration and the President lied to the American people.....
We know the administration and the President lied to the American people.....so it’s hard to contemplate how Hillary could even be running for President, etc.
A confidant and paid employee of the CLintoons
Anyone who supports HilLIARy (or any Demonicrat) for President is giving aid and comfort to the enemy.
So let me explain the significance of this news report to those like Lady Buck that have a reading comprehension problem.
Up until now talk of Hillary being aware of the planned attack was mere hearsay. But here we have proof of it as shown in the emails.
Lady Buck, does that resonate with your view of the world or is it still much too subtle to differentiate any difference in significance ?
Hillary and her gang should be charged with first degree murder.
I think you need to turn your flame down a little.
Snark is lost on the perpetually stupid.
Everyone knows that bitch was aware.
Next time I comment to you, I will use smaller words and be disgustingly direct.
My point was, YES she knew. She still has decades old crimes to answer for. She has not been held accountable for those. She has not been held accountable for her Benghazi crimes, despite GOP Congresscritters screeching on TV and playing drama queen for the electorate. Why is that, I wonder?
She is the Teflon C*NT, and the asswipe Republicans we absolutely HAD to vote for otherwise the country would crap out...... Where are THOSE PRETEND PATRIOTS? they may have complained on MSM, but they provide her cover continuously. May they all crash and burn in hell.
That comprehensible enough for you, paisano?
No use responding to you. Like an echo, you’ll just rearrange my own words and send it back to me.
Of course she knew.
“What difference does it make now?”
I wish I had a nickel for every new piece of info that came out that would bring down the Clinton Cartel or the Negro Nazi party.
Congressional hearings have been Kabuki theater since Waco.
I pity the fools that think the GOPe is going to nominate someone like Ted Cruz instead of someone like Jeb Bush.
It is way past time for America to wake up.
Well, then don’t respond.
Just spout your words as you intended.
Did you have a point digressing from the rest of us?
