Will Hillary pay a price for Benghazi? (No need to answer)

Will Hillary pay a price for Benghazi? (No need to answer)

We already know the answer.

Ben Ghazi who? will be the media’s reaction if and when Hillary runs in 2016.

The House Progress Report on Benghazi Terror Attack Investigation will be ancient history.

While Hillary will not pay a price, she should, New Report Raises Significant Questions About Benghazi:

According to the executive summary, the ongoing investigation by the five House committees has already determined that:

  • Reductions of security levels prior to the attacks in Benghazi were approved at the highest levels of the State Department, up to and including Secretary Clinton. This fact contradicts her testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 23, 2013.
  • In the days following the attacks, White House and senior State Department officials altered accurate talking points drafted by the Intelligence Community in order to protect the State Department.
  • Contrary to Administration rhetoric, the talking points were not edited to protect classified information. Concern for classified information is never mentioned in email traffic among senior administration officials.
  • All of this seems to conflict with what the Obama Administration told the American public in the thick of the president’s ultimately successful re-election campaign.

Of particular importance is the report’s conclusion that the administration focused for far too long on the idea that a YouTube video provoked the attack. “The Administration willfully perpetuated a deliberately misleading and incomplete narrative that the attacks evolved from a political demonstration caused by a YouTube video. U.S. officials on the ground reported – and video evidence confirms – that demonstrations outside the Benghazi Mission did not occur and that the incident began with an armed attack on the facility,” the report says. “Senior Administration officials knowingly minimized the role played by al-Qa’ida-affiliated entities and other associated groups in the attacks, and decided to exclude from the discussion the previous attempts by extremists to attack U.S. persons or facilities in Libya.”

How long before the words “vast right wing conspiracy” slip through her lips and especially the lips of her supporters? Already the Dems have cried that the preliminary, non-final report doesn’t have balance through Democrat contributions (or something…). But it’s not like they were barred.

The larger scandal SHOULD be the near utter lack of curiosity (in public) by most any of the current Dem Congress members. Will the GOP be able to leverage that???

Hillary’s not nearly as good a liar as her husband.

I for one will not let anyone forget Benghazi. If they don’t want to believe me, I’ll just print out the report, and lay it at the unbeliever’s feet. I’ll also point out that 4 people died (Christopher J. Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods), and that Hillary denied requests for increased security in Libya. She has the blood of 4 people on her hands. When ROBOT SQUIRRELS GET FUNDED, but not embassy security details, you know where to point the finger now. I’m sure Obama would have loved to blame that one on the sequester as well.

Hillary is the presumptive 2016 Democrat nominee, which means she will NOT be the actual nominee. The Democrats always nominate “someone else.” Keep in mind she was also the presumptive 2008 nominee — until someone else stole the show. The one exception to this rule in living memory is Gore in 2000.

The point being that, since Hillary won’t be running for president, there really won’t be an opportunity to make her answer for Benghazi or anything else. She might pay in terms of lowered popularity as a retiree on the speaking circuit, but that’s about it.

What difference, at this point, does it make?

No controlling legal authority.

etc.

Hillary: “I ain’t going to save the lives of four white guys. No way. Obama and Holder would have my head. Besides the people who attacked the embassy…they were just disgruntled non-Americans waiting to immigrate and vote Democratic.”

Come on, folks… think about who this is. She’s a Clinton. In her world, when you are absolutely, positively, irrefutably, caught-red-handed guilty, you plead guilty to a lesser or innocuous charge.

Remember that “illness” with which she was afflicted just after Benghazi? Recall that she supposedly was so ill that ‘te fall down an’ bump her wid’ow head?

When called on the carpet about lying, she will state:

“Yes, I lied, but at the time I was fighting ________ with which I was suffering since late August. All the shuttle diplomacy and change of climates and stress of delivering a peaceful world to our children and grandchildren overwhelmed both my immune system and… yes, at times, my judgment. The culmination of this illness was when my body shut down, at which time I collapsed and suffered a severe head injury. The effects of this trauma caused me to be confused when the House Majority hauled me before their committees to be grilled. [dabs eyes with a hankie]

“My only error was in trying to serve the American People and promote the cause of World Peace and Harmony when I was in a terrible physical state. Like my namesake, Sir Edmund Hillary, I just had to climb that mountain. If this is indeed something for which I must be punished, you may do with me what you will, but for trying to Serve Mankind, I will never apologize.”

[Chris Matthews’ eyes roll back in his head and tremors rack his body, whereupon he lights two smokes: one for himself and the other for his ego.]

Ah, I can just hear the Billy Goat now: “If you shove Hillary under the bus, you can forget about me talking nice about you, slick. Now, where’s my coffee?”

“Will Hillary pay a price for Benghazi?”
Absolutely not. She’s a jackass, so It’s all good.

The evidence of deliberate dereliction of duty, if not direct intentional sabotage, to ensure US Embassy Consulate’s appropriate sufficient amount safety and security in Benghazi Libya was in place, maintained, and even added to as required in such a volatile hostile area and region of the world, especially as requested by Ambassador Stevens himself, against Hillary and Obama both, is overwhelming.

But it is not the overwhelming evidence against Hillary, as well as Obama that’s the issue so much as who will make them accountable for their action and inactions that resulted in the deaths of a US Ambassador, plus 3 Embassy Consulate personnel.

The MSMedia is supposed to do that job, but instead sees and acts it’s mission and duty, to protect them by helping to cover-up that indictment of Hillary and Obama from the public’s view. And we all know the Democratic Senate under Harry Reid, and the liberal crony Republican GOP establishment RINOs of the US House of Representatives- Boehner and company, will do nothing to see justice carried out against either of them, for politics is their game of self-interest, not the American people’s interest, not US National Security’s interest.

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly against the city. But the traitor moves among those within the gates freely, his sly whispers rustling through all alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears no traitor; he speaks in the accents familiar to his victim, and he wears their face and their garments and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation; he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city; he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared. The traitor is the plague.”
~Marcus Tullius Cicero~ Roman Statesman, Philosopher, Orator 106-43 B.C.
