Watch live: [session over]

This is the most talked about part of the day — Hillary admitting video had nothing to do with Benghazi attack and that she told people at the time, but the American public was told otherwise:

Rowdy’s opening remarks were spectacular! And Clinton rudely rifled through papers while he was speaking

Cummings may as well be on the Clinton payroll.

Why is Roskam giving her such credit?

Hillary Clinton on Gaddafi: We came, we saw, he died.

Yes, and according to Obama’s t.v. interview after that USAF action (unauthorized by congress), Obama “never really gave much thought” to what would happen in Libya after the U.S. removed its government.

Of course, we all know now what happened: Libya was taken over by terrorists, and it’s now a full-blown disaster, not just for Libyans but also for surrounding states and Europe.

Using U.S. military might to take out Libya’s government was reportedly Hillary’s brilliant idea (and one she shamelessly boasted about afterwards). Did she, like her idiot boss Obama, also not stop to give a thought to what would likely fill the power vacuum she would be creating in Libya?

Hillary is responsible for what happened in Benghazi, but she is also responsible for the even bigger disaster of what happened in Libya. I hope Gowdy questions her about that.

    Obama and Clinton: We came, we saw, we aborted.

    At least Hussein stood trial for his crimes against the people. And collateral damage was scrutinized, not defended and even applauded.

It was a created war zone. Clinton was responsible before the fact. Obama was responsible throughout. They and the social complex are responsible for the subsequent global humanitarian disaster, and anti-native policies specifically.

I wonder what was so important for Hillary that she was as removed from close engagement to what was happening in Benghazi. I also wonder what her definition of accountability is.

Good for her the dead cannot testify.

There must be some records of what went on in Hillary’s official conduct during the most critical time leading up to 9-11-12. If I heard her correctly, she didn’t do anything on computer or emails concerning important matters. Nothing in any written trail, even handwritten notes. No clear documentation except what her guys Mullen, et. al. created.

    If I heard her correctly, she didn’t do anything on computer or emails concerning important matters. Nothing in any written trail, even handwritten notes.

    As little as possible.

    There were notes made (not recordings) by the state Department of voice [phone] communications with members of foreign governments, but nothing of what she said within the United States government.

    She never made any notes to herself, but, in effect, she actually did one on Benghazi, the night of September 11, 2012. (It’s not entirely her own thoughts, but it something that she knew would have to stand the test of time)

    And the committee got it, and this is how:

    There was an e-mail to Chelsea, in which she summarized what happened:

    “Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al-Qaeda-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked and a young communications officer on temporary duty w a wife and young children. Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow.”

    Hillary Clinton, of course, never expected that to become a public record, but, because of the way she handled her e-mail it did – and also did not get deleted. A text search for the string “Benghazi” probably turned that up.

    If she’d kept separate personal and official e-mail accounts, that surely would have been on the personal one because Chelsea’s e-mail address wouldn’t even have been on the official one.

      Note that Hillary Clinton said it prid ir ptecisely right here;

      an al-Qaeda-like group </b

      She knew it wasn’t exactly “al Qaeda” and that’s an acceptable oversimplification for her daughter’s ears.

      Of course, the next day, the U.s. government started to take it back.

      You want to know what’s missing also – what exactly it said in that “claim of resposibility” by Ansar al Sharia. Ansar al Sharia later released a statement saying its leadership did not order the attacks, and the CIA seemed to accept that as discounting therefore the claim of responsibility.


Reinventing herself AGAIN?

She will get off Scott free as usual and the press and the Dems will provide cover. They can’t do otherwise: she’s their candidate now that Biden is not running.

    Mich in reply to MAB. | October 22, 2015 at 11:53 am

    The way it goes, it is the Republicans on the committee against the Democrats. The Democrats on the committee keep reiterating they are not going to take anything concerning this into consideration that maybe their gal wasn’t competent.

    This is important because she is running for President and will be in charge of everyone’s security. There is a significant portion of the country that are not Democrat. What they are doing is confirming to me that she is indeed not qualified. They are helping her not asking her anything except her concurrance in what they are stating.

    gasper in reply to MAB. | October 22, 2015 at 1:22 pm

    The media will make sure she comes out of this stronger than when she went in. She will be made out to be smarter than the entire Republican panel. It doesn’t make any difference how effective the GOP is. You won’t find much negative on this after all is said and done.

Congresswoman Brooks’ line of questioning is excellent.

    heyjoojoo in reply to Mercyneal. | October 22, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    I agree. Thought she was great.

    I’m afraid the damage has been done and as usual, the Dems will get off free. Her numbers probably will increase too since CNN will spin the results of this latest hearing in her favor.

Hillary: “Most of my work was not done…” [do to fund raising for 2016].

40 years ago this is a non issue as the person responsible would have fallen on their own sword and stepped down, completely disappear from public service. Now, deny deny deny and have the media cover you with a smoke screen. It’s ridiculous that she denies it’s her fault, she was the head of the State Dept. anything good diplomatically that happened whether she was involved or not was a positive for her, anything bad was someone else s fault. She is a pathological liar and it’s disgusting that anyone would protect her and even vote for her. But then again Democrats never had a problem with the murderer Ted Kennedy so why would they have a problem with this vile woman who leaves a trail of bodies behind her.

I also cant wait for them to interview Patrick “Patches” “Golly Gee” Kennedy while he pops percs and washes them down with scotch. Hopefully someone can drive him so he doesn’t wrap his purple Mustang around another pole.

I still can’t accept they could Not help these people as the attack went on for 8 hours with help less than 2 hours away by air

-Rep. Jim Jordan vs Hillary:
Bill should be really proud of her after today. She has taken his ability to parse words and statements to be just shy of his own ability of using the word “is”. Today’s responses before the committee are second to “Slick Willy’s” during his impeachment hearing. Perhaps she will take the Silver if she “is” able to out fox the D.O.J. on the more than likely F.B.I. charges of illegal holding and processing of secured and confidential government materials for the time she was the head honcho at the State Dept..

    Please excuse for not cleaning out a portion of a prior posting of this as an edit I made under another nom de plume of “NYGOPer” in Mediaite.

    S&Lick Willie didn’t have an impeachment hearing – he had grand jury testimony.

    I call him here S&Lick WIllie in reference to the Savings and Loan scandal, where also you always had these complaiants about how long the bank examination was taking.

I don’t want hitlery to win the election, but it would be nice if the new President utilized her talent and found a place for her in the new administration…

as Ambassador to Libya.

Sammy Finkelman | October 23, 2015 at 1:29 pm

Republicans have forgotten that numerous demonstrations against the video were made all over the Islamic world in the days after Benghazi


And another BIG LIE:

That she was a friend of Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

The more that gets repeated, and the more Democrats claim to know that out of their own personal knowledge the more I think this is a lie – and probably an outrageous one..
