Yes, Hillary, It Does Matter

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s much delayed testimony on the terrorist attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty at the U.S. Mission in Benghazi, Libya was remarkably short on facts and analysis and was further clouded by Clinton’s feigned outrage at a very basic question from Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin.

Hillary ClintonWhy, Johnson asked Clinton, weren’t the survivors of the Libya attack interviewed before U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's now-discredited public statements on the attack were aired?

“With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans,” Clinton told him angrily. “Whether it's because of a protest or whether a guy out for a walk decided to go kill some Americans, what difference at this point does it make?”

Clinton’s phony outrage shows once again the famous Clinton spin machine at work. Senator Johnson's question matters because the Obama administration -- from President Obama, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice -- has been lying to hide the fact that they are losing the war with radical Islam.

Despite the Obama administration’s outright lies, conflicting statements and political obfuscation, other congressional hearings and documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act, as well as the statements of truth-telling patriots in government, have proven the attack on our Embassy in Libya was a well-coordinated terrorist attack -- not a spontaneous riot in response to an amateurish video that insulted Islam. And, that this was known at the time of the attacks.

Yet Clinton’s testimony failed to tie all this together in any kind of coherent fashion.

“We didn't know who the attackers were or what their motives were," she said. "The picture remains somewhat complicated.”

Radical Islam is “somewhat complicated.”  Wow, there’s an incisive foreign policy analysis for you.

Americans are uniquely unqualified to be engaged in a religious war. The very idea of a religious war goes against our history as a sanctuary for the religiously oppressed – yet we have been engaged in one with radical Islam for some 20 years.

While our “targeted strikes” and drone warfare have been successful in killing individual enemy leaders and operatives, they haven’t turned-off the spigot. Others have simply stepped in to take the place of slain radical Islamist leaders and new theaters of action -- such as Libya, Mali and Algeria -- have opened.

Clearly the Obama strategy isn’t working. We will run out of bullets, and money, long before we win the “war on terrorism” that way.

Republicans on Capitol Hill unfortunately did little to clarify the picture. They focused on Watergate hearing-style “what did Clinton know and when did she know it” questions, instead of the “who, what and why" of the deadly attacks.

Secretary of State Clinton’s testimony on the Benghazi attacks was all about politics, not the real crisis that the attack revealed: Obama’s failing strategy in the war with radical Islam.

As the attacks in Benghazi, Mali and the BP refinery in Algeria demonstrate, right now we are losing the war of ideas with radical Islam. If the Capitol Hill hearings and Clinton’s testimony shed any new light on anything, it is that our national leaders, Republican and Democrat, appear to be focused only on politics and entirely disengaged from the reality of the most dangerous enemy we have ever faced.

So many lies and fear with the leaders

Well why didn't the Senator ask Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the question matters because the Obama administration -- from President Obama, to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice -- has been lying to hide the fact that they are losing the war with radical Islam. Why are these Senators and Congressmen afraid to come right out and say what they mean....THEY DO IT IN EVERY OTHER COURT...I think ALL OF WHAT IS GOING ON HIGHER UP IS A LIE...ALL COVERING FOR EACH OTHER...There are only a few strong and couragous leaders that do speak out....

Clintons testimony

Clintons complete disregaurd to the feelings of those who have lost their lovedones. Shows this was a preplaned attactked and I would bet Obama supplied the wepons used to attack the Americans. I personaly believe that the reason that the Mariens were not allowed to go was. This was fake kidnapping that went wrong when the Americans faought back. It was about getting the blind sheikh back to Egypt. It failed

What next? The attack on the oil field. Again the Blind sheikh was to be traded. This time the Algerians stept in and that caused another opertunity to free the blind sheikh failed.

 Mark my words they will try again to give Obama a chance to free the blind sheikh.

 

So Yes It Does Matter!

Clinton's Testimony

George, You too miss the point of her feigned anger or frustration. The real pont is and was, Obama and Clinton plus others watched as the debacle unfolded. As it was unfolding, the ovbvious duty of a commander and his subordinates was to make an instnataneous decision to send in the available forces. Obama should have been on the phone with the Admiral Commanding our Mediterannean fleet and ordered at the very least a supersonic flyover of Benghazi to make the attackers aware of our presence. Simultaneously, he could and should have ordered American forces in Signorella, Italy to launch then and there for Benghazi. Simultaneously a high level State Department person, Clinton, should have established a communicatuiion link with some Libyan Government official and advise them our forces are on the way to intercede on America's behalf; just for starters, but, NO; Obama failed to even attend a following Intel Briefing, jumnped aboard Air Force One and abandoned ship for a soiree in Las Vegas..I suggest that is treasonous demanding an indictment, a civil trial and hopefully a finding of GUILTY and sentencec to "HANG BY THE NECK UNTIL DEAD!!  Then and only then will justice be partially satisfied.

"...what difference at this

"...what difference at this point does it make?”, should have been immediatly answered with, "It matters if you want to keep your job". Are you going to answer or should we start procedures to have you removed from your posittion.

We know she would not take that laying down.

Order her to respond at that point.

Then, "Sargent at arms, take Mrs. Clinton into custody for refusing to cooperate with a congressional order.

But since none wish to tangle with the Potus, each hearing in the public is just a song and dance.

The REAL ISSUE

The REAL issue here is not the State Department,s fumbling of the security, THAT'S a GIVEN, and as.Hillary's department, HER responsibility.
The REAL ISSUE here is who concocted and sanctioned the COVER UP following this fiasco.
Unless this Congress is willing to ask the uncomfortable questions , the victims families and the American people will be denied the TRUTH !
You mentioned Watergate,... That was a burglary in which no one died, yet the persons responsible for the cover up were brought to Justice. The American people deserve no less in this case, no matter how high it goes...
Anything less is unacceptable....

IT DOES MATTER TO US CITIZENS-- TAX PAYERS

THE RESPONSE OF HILLARY WAS AT BEST---A FRUSTRATED CON JOB THAT GOT CAUGHT BY SOME INTELLIGENT PEOPLE. WHAT DOES IT MATTER IF YOU ALLOW THIS BEHAVIOR TO GO UNCHALLENGED!!!!!! WE ARE GETTING CLOSER TO THE " RISE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE."ALL COUNTRIES THAT TRIED TO OVER EXTEND THEIR ASSETS HAVE SETTLED BACK INTO A SECONDARY POSITION. TRY THE DUTCH, SPAIN, FRANCE,ENGLAND TO NAME A FEW. WE ARE GETTING CLOSE TO BANKRUPTCY SO OUR GOVERNMENT OUGHT TO DECIDE WHICH ACTIONS MATTER AND NEED EXAMINATION AND WHAT ACTIONS SHOULD BE CURTAILED.. OUR EXPOSURE IS LESS THAT PRACTICAL IN LYBIA, AND MANY OTHER FOREIGN INVESTMENTS.. TIME TO COME HOME , MIND OUR BUSINESS AND CORRECT OF PROBLEMS.. YES-- IT DOES MATTER IN MORE WAYS THAN THIS FIASCO-- WALLY -- IN -- FRANKFORT

Here, here!

I couldn't agree with you more. Unfortunately the Feds are unwilling to change their geopolitical objectives, probably until it's too late. They may lie to themselves that they are making the world safer, just so they can sleep at night but many of us see through their BS.

Hillary's Congressional Hearings

 

Hillary Questioning on Benghazi

Most Senators and Congressmen failed to address the real point that should have been made in this investigation: How this cover up was allowing Obama to get away with bragging that he eliminated Osama bin Laden as a national threat to our security, while in reality the threat was on the front side of anyone who cared to look.

Obfuscating this fact potentially cost Republicans the election, and that should have been the drive behind every question raised.

There was another theory for this attack, brought up by  retired 4 Star Admiral James Lyons , that this was an attempt to trade a captured Stevens for the Blind Sheik Abdul Rahman, who orchestrated the first WTC bombing   http://www.politisite.com/2013/01/17/retired-4-star-admiral-blows-whistl...

Egypt has been asking for his release, and our Muslim president is trying to find ways to facilitate it.

Unfortunately the polite Republican side thought it better to be gentlemen-like to a woman who did not deserve it (remember her role in crucifying Nixon during the lead up to his resignation!!, than getting to the truth, putting Obama and his whole administration on the defense.
