Skip to comments....Hillary and Susan Rice told me “nose to nose” that the Mohammed video was to blame (5/13)

This makes two parents of men killed in Benghazi whove claimed that Hillary told them personally that the video was the prime mover in the attack. Tyrone Woodss father went a step further and alleged that she vowed to have the filmmaker arrested and prosecuted which, courtesy of California authorities, is what ended up happening. (See Rich Lowrys new piece, The Benghazi Patsy, for background.) Why did she think it was some sort of comfort to the bereaved that the attack might have been motivated by the Mohammed movie? She went so far as to mention it in her remarks a few days afterward at the ceremony at Andrews AFB when the victims bodies arrived; skip to 16:30 here and watch. With Stevenss remains right in front of her, she interrupted her praise for his service to note that rage and violence had been directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with. Even if that were true, who cares? Why would Mr. Woods or Mrs. Smith give a wet shinola about what motivated a group of degenerates to kill their kids? States duty to protect its diplomats doesnt dissolve depending upon whether an attack was foreseeable which of course it was in the case of Benghazi, given the consulates repeated warnings about a growing jihadi presence in the city. Her whole 3 a.m. shtick in the 2008 campaign was that she was ready for responsibilities that Obama wasnt prepared for, yet when a crisis finally landed in her lap here, she couldnt move fast enough to pass the buck to some random American whose big sin was free speech that was unhelpful to the administrations goals.
Serious question for Hillary: If, in an alternate universe, the Benghazi attackers really were motivated by outrage over the Mohammed video and not their preexisting jihadist allegiances, would the filmmaker be the main culprit, morally or even legally? Should Terry Jones be prosecuted for burning a Koran after jihad-bots inevitably seize it on as a pretext to rampage in Afghanistan or Pakistan? This is no academic question. Matt Welch put together three pages worth of quotations this morning from prominent liberals in the aftermath of Benghazi flirting with (or even outright embracing) the idea of censoring material that offends Muslims. Hillarys own State Department spent tens of thousands of your tax dollars a week later in Pakistan to run TV ads denouncing the video, just in case any of our allies there were thinking about making a move on the embassy in Islamabad. Yesterdays testimony from Greg Hicks was useful in establishing that the Mohammed video was a non-event in Libya, but it tells us nothing about what policies Hillary would have endorsed if the film-driven outrage theory of the attack had had some merit to it. I want to know. Dont you?
Hillary saw that PR-wise the video motive was a great side-story. So she poured it on.
I have more respect for the vid-maker than for Hillary. Hillary is so obviously a self-centered elitest Leftist that I’m surprised more folks don’t see through her.
Obama said it.
Remember his lecture at the UN about how the future does not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam.
she lied to your face...HILDA HAS ALWAYS HATED THE MILITARY, it’s nothing new. She was probably in a stupor when Benghazi went down and couldn’t respond.
It wasn’t to blame, but who cares if it was? The Mohammed video told a truth that needed telling. And we have free speech in the USA.
Hillary should be pretty good as president. She can lie just as easily as 0bama with the MSM to back her up.
If she runs in 2016, there will be mountains of ammunition in these speeches and testimony she gave before Congress..........
The Republican candidate in 2016 needs to run Hillary from the 2008 debates talking about the 3:00 AM phone call with the phone showing caller ID “Benghazi” ring over and over with no answer. Maybe a little light back ground machine gun fire and screaming.
Very interesting to compare this article with that of the LA Times on the day the patsy was released from “a halfway house” - see this dated September 27, 2013, exactly one year after the arrest.
Your thoughts after reading both of these articles....are....
Why the cover up of what the cause was? Everything points to the fact that during the attack, the WH did NOTHING to prevent 4 Americans from being murdered!
As if comforting the bereaved was anywhere to be found on her list of things to worry about!
When you got an ass the size of Hillary's, it's a full time job just worrying about saving that.
And anyway, what difference, at this point, does it make?
She ran her husband's domestic business for him, so is she eligible to seek a third term?
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 embassys statement does not reflect the view of the U.S. government; Update: Romney calls embassy statement disgraceful

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.'
Father of Fallen SEAL: Hillary Told Me Theyd Get That Filmmaker Good 10/25/2012 videos at link
did he smell brimstone or the brown nose odor?
She said she has the experience to be president because she was at Bill’s side for thirty years and saw how it was done. Its like having a Cabin Attendant allowed to fly a plane because they’ve seen it done many times.
AMERICAN PRESIDENTS IN UNIFORM
Have her testify UNDER OATH.

Yoo, hoo, Hillary---Gehad's on call-waiting.
Gehad al Haddad, Muslim Brotherhood activist AND former Clinton employee.
Ghgad is sitting in a nice comfy Egyptian jail as we type. Gehad al Haddad is a Muslim Brotherhood spox--and a former employee of Hillary and Bill's tax-exempt foundation.
Gehad was arrested by the Egyptian military for inciting violence AT THE SAME TIME he was a Clinton employee.
Betcha Gehad knows plenty abt how the M/B uses tax-exempts for money-laundering (to finance their terror activities against America).
But how to tell Hillary? ROTFL.
Does someone sit around and watch u-tube videos all day and decided a certain one would be great as an excuse to help in an election?
