    UPDATED: Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has said that the conflict in Libya was Italy's main priority, following a meeting with French President François Hollande on Thursday morning. "Libya is the next focus," he said. "We must give top priority to Libya, which is likely to be the next emergency." Hollande had called the meeting with Renzi to discuss ways Italy can support France in its military campaign against Isis. On Monday Italian media reports suggested France would ask Italy to commit soldiers on the ground in Libya, according to La Repubblica. But Renzi was still unclear as to what...

    GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump's latest video, posted online Monday, portrays Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton laughing over flaming images of the Benghazi attack. "Hillary has been having a laugh at our expense for years," reads text at the beginning of the video, followed immediately with a series of video clips of the former secretary of State chuckling. Clinton's laughter can be heard while several news clips fly across the screen highlighting several controversies, from Whitewater to the recent federal investigation into her private email arrangement while at State. The final clip of Clinton laughing — taken from her testimony...

    Russian President Vladimir Putin has arrived in Tehran for talks with Iranian leaders about the crisis in Syria. On his first trip to Iran in eight years, Putin met with Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday, as Russia nears a third month of military engagement in the conflict. The discussions come on a sidelines of a one-day trip to Iran for a summit of gas-exporting countries. Tehran and Moscow have supported Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the ongoing civil war that has crippled the country since 2011 and killed over 250,000 people. The violence has displaced millions more. On...

    The war on terror, that campaign without end launched 14 years ago by George Bush, is tying itself up in ever more grotesque contortions. On Monday the trial in London of a Swedish man, Bherlin Gildo, accused of terrorism in Syria, collapsed after it became clear British intelligence had been arming the same rebel groups the defendant was charged with supporting. The prosecution abandoned the case, apparently to avoid embarrassing the intelligence services. The defence argued that going ahead with the trial would have been an “affront to justice” when there was plenty of evidence the British state was itself...

    Ever since Hillary Clinton announced her run for the presidency concerns have been raised in many quarters, by people of all political persuasions, that she was simply too old to hold the office if she was elected. Hillary, if elected, would be the second oldest person to win the office after Ronald Reagan. But where Reagan was very active throughout his life, Hillary is a different story.    Hillary never participated in athletics when she was younger, something about being too ugly to participate. And now, as she approaches the BIG SEVEN-ZERO she is very out of shape. It is a safe...

    Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri again referenced the Benghazi, Libya, attack in an audio tape posted on jihadist websites last week, in remarks that, like all his statements, were immediately carefully scrutinized by counter-terrorism analysts searching for clues about the terrorist networks operations. Al-Zawahiri had called for Americans to be targeted in Libya the day before the diplomatic mission was attacked, leading to speculation that al Qaedas leadership in Pakistan had some sort of role or influence in the attack.

Recently released watch logs from the State Department operations center show she made no official inquiries from 10:30 p.m. that night through 7:15 a.m. the following morning. That is a long time to be missing when a U.S. diplomatic facility is under attack. Why was no rescue effort mounted? That is the question that has been driving good people crazy since this...

    When Washington Post fact-checker Glen Kessler awarded Marco Rubio ‘Two Pinocchios‘ for his CNBC debate assessment that the recent Benghazi hearings had exposed Hillary Clinton as a liar, he rooted his conclusion –partially, at least — in two factors. First, he argued that although it’s legitimate to point out Hillary’s conflicting statements about the attacks, jumping to “lie” requires a higher standard of proof. Given the alleged “fog of war” that hung over the deadly event, Kessler said, it’s unfair and uncharitable to accuse Clinton of outright lying. Second, he cited a statement from Clinton’s campaign flat-out denying that...

Breitbart News has learned that Mills and Warnholz are racing toward a big payday, shipping cargo in Tanzania after Clinton “discreetly” helped her American friends’ companies move in on the area’s untapped energy market during her time as Secretary of State.

    The New York Times' Maureen Dowd captured the moment last weekend when she referred to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as "the midwife to chaos" in Libya. Dowd apparently came to that conclusion after watching Clinton bobbing and weaving and admitting and denying as she was confronted with the partial record of her failures and obfuscations as secretary of state, particularly with respect to Libya. The public record is fairly well-known. In March 2011, President Barack Obama declared war on Libya. He did this at the urging of Clinton, who wanted to overthrow Libyan strongman Col.

    I have long maintained that Democrats can spread a lie better and faster than Republicans can tell the truth. The Benghazi Select Committee Hearings proved my thesis. A few salient points were made. For example, Rep. Jim Jordan unearthed an email from Clinton to daughter Chelsea, penned while the violence still raged, describing the attack as perpetrated by an Al-Qaeda-like group, and a next day conversation with the Egyptian Prime Minister admitting We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest. All the while, Clinton was telling the...
  • Bull****!' Rudy Giuliani Reveals Tense Run-In With Benghazi Spin-Master Susan Rice

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani has never been one to hold back his feelings on an issue, but his run-in with U.N. Ambassador and Benghazi spin master Susan Rice days after the September 2012 attack might take the idea of candor to a whole new level. "I was on Sunday morning television with Susan Rice that Sunday," Giuliani revealed on Thursdays Hannity. "I was sitting in the room ready to go on and I heard her say 'this is because of the Mohammed video.'" The deceptive statement was apparently too much for the former federal prosecutor to take....

    Many people may share Senator Bernie Sanders' complaint that he was tired of hearing about Hillary Clinton's e-mails. But the controversy is about issues far bigger than e-mails. One issue is the utter disaster created by the Obama administration's foreign policy in Libya, carried out by Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State. An even bigger issue is whether high officials of government can ignore the law and refuse to produce evidence when it is subpoenaed. If they can, then the whole separation of powers the checks and balances in the Constitution gives way to arbitrary government by corrupt...
  • Hillary's Worst Crime Was Against the 'Filmmaker'

    American Thinker ^ | 10/26/2015 | Jack Cashill
    It would be as ethically bankrupt for the Democrats to nominate Hillary Clinton after Benghazi as it would have been for the Republicans to nominate Richard Nixon after the Watergate hearings. More bankrupt actually. No one died at Watergate, and the only people who went to prison were the ones who committed the crimes. At Benghazi, of course, four Americans died, and the only American who went to prison did so to help Hillary sell a lie. Before Hillarys testimony Thursday in front of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, her supporters could take some comfort in thinking that there...

    In the 2008 campaign, Hillary Clinton asserted that she was the candidate best equipped to take a 3 a.m. phone call. What she didnt tell us was that her number would be unlisted. In the bipartisan grandstanding of the latest Benghazi committee hearing last week, the mostly inept Republicans managed to extract one piece of information that will stick: that our murdered Libyan Ambassador Chris Stevens didnt have Clintons e-mail address. Clinton stammered a bit as she confessed this, realizing that she was contradicting her earlier characterization of Stevens as someone she knew and respected, the personal anecdotes that suggested...

    Meet The Press host Chuck Todd called out ranking Benghazi Select Committee member Elijah Cummings (D., Md.) and other Democrats Sunday for using so much of their time this week with Hillary Clinton to shield her rather than ask real questions about Clintons handling of the terrorist attack.Less than 25 percent of the Democrats questions, according to the NBC shows calculations, were actually challenging, Todd said. The hearing was referred to as partisan by many mainstream media outlets, but they chose to give it that label because of the Republicans tough questioning of Clinton, not Democrats consistently bashing the proceedings...
