Judicial Watch: Hillary Slept Through Security Meeting Following Benghazi Attack

Judicial Watch: Hillary Slept Through Security Meeting Following Benghazi Attack

Emails warn of “Crusade paradigm” and “Christian Dominionists”

Judicial Watch has obtained new emails (available here) that reveal a bit more about Hillary Clinton’s time at State than we knew before (or than she probably wants revealed).

Judicial Watch reports:

Judicial Watch today released a new batch of emails of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton connected to the Benghazi attack. Included is an email chain showing that Clinton slept late the Saturday after the Benghazi attack and missed a meeting that her staff had been trying to set up about sensitive intelligence issues, including the Presidential Daily Brief, on a day she was to make a slew of phone calls to foreign leaders.

There was also an interesting detail in an email concerning Bowe Bergdahl’s father’s concern over “Crusader paradigm.”

The documents contain an email passed to Clinton in the days following the Benghazi attack in which the father of alleged Army deserter Bowe Bergdahl anguishes over the “‘Crusade’ paradigm” which he says “will never be forgotten in this part of the world.”

You may remember Mr. Bergdahl from Obama’s over-the-top, tin-eared, and inappropriate Rose Garden ceremony announcing the exchange of Bowe Bergdahl, who has since been charged with desertion and misbehavior before the enemy, for five top Taliban leaders.


Judicial Watch continues:

An email from former Ambassador Joe Wilson to Clinton expresses his concern about “Christian Dominionists who seek to turn [the military] into an instrument of their religious zealotry.”

Other emails show approval of an effort to blame an Internet video on the Benghazi attack that aired on the Al Jazeera network.

Dear Hillary, …

Glen Doherty [CIA contractor killed in the Benghazi attack] was a fellow member of the Military Religious Freedom Advisory Board, which fights to ensure that our military is not further compromised by the Christian Dominionists who seek to turn it into an instrument of their religious zealotry, an army for Christ rather than for the defense of our nation. He was invaluable in helping us uncover several cases where religious indoctrination was taking place under the guise of military training….

“These new Benghazi emails are disturbing and show why Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration had to be forced to disclose them,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “Hillary Clinton, despite knowing that terrorists were responsible for the attack, allowed her spokesman to go to the Arab world and blame an Internet film.

Hillary Clinton trafficked in fantastical conspiracy theories that suggested both American conservatives and Israel were to blame for the Benghazi attack and jihadist violence in the Muslim world.  And the crazed email from Sidney Blumenthal shows that she was taking direction on her Benghazi spin based upon attack-style presidential campaign politics.  Finally, the ‘I just got up’ email shows that, smack dab in the middle of the Benghazi crisis, Hillary Clinton fell behind and may have not been fully briefed as she began an intense round of phone calls to foreign leaders.”

“The [Sidney] Blumenthal email includes a link to an article by his son Max Blumenthal that suggests that American conservatives, Zionists and the Israel government were behind the Internet video that was falsely linked by Clinton and Barack Obama to the Benghazi attack. Clinton responded with an approving, “Your Max is a Mitzvah.”

    Yiddish becomes her even less than a phony southern drawl.

      1. Mitzvah is Hebrew.

      2. It makes no sense in either language. “Your Max is a commandment”?!

      3. Perhaps she’s picking up some Yiddish from her mechutonim (her child’s in-laws), and was trying to say metziah (a find). To which I would say sure, he’s yenne metziah (“that find”, invariably meant sarcastically).

    These Blumenthals must be Arabs with a name change,

3am…asleep at the wheel…drunk with power

I’m pretty sure if she wins, the terrorist attacks on US soil will be climbing to the tens of thousands during her term.

As great a fraud as ‘Barack Hussein Obama.’ And even less talented, if that’s possible.

And with Boehner gone, there’s no one left on the GOP to blackmail, except McConnell.

What a corrupt, talentless, poorly aging hack to do?

Whenever I hear or read hand-wringing over our seeming to be “Crusaders” in the eyes of the Muslim world, I say, “Get over it, the Muslim world already considers us Crusaders, and they’re not going to change their minds.”

This reminds me of when George Bush claimed that we were not fighting a religious war. I wanted to tell him, “If our enemies think they’re engaged in a religious war, it’s a religious war. This is one situation in which it doesn’t take two to tango.”

    Interestingly, the idea that the crusaders’ impact on the Moslem world was so traumatic that their memory is still painful isn’t true. It’s true of Jews; we still commemorate the massacres of 1096, and “crusader” is about on the level with “cossack” or “nazi”, but until about 100 years ago Moslems never thought much about the crusaders. It was the Moslem Brotherhood that built them up into a big thing, in order to gin up hatred of Europeans.

PS: Yes, Yiddish has words for your grandchildren’s other grandparents. It’s awkward that English doesn’t, since they are clearly your relatives. Your child’s father-law is your mechuten, the mother-in-law is your mechutenesteh, and together they are your mechutonim. Mechutonim can also be used more generically, for your child-in-law’s entire family.

But what I find a need for, and both languages lack, is a word for my cousin’s uncles, aunts, and cousins. Again, it is a recognisable relationship, but what do you call it? I generally just call my cousins’ uncles and aunts “uncle” and “aunt”, although it’s not really accurate, but their cousins aren’t my cousins, and yet they are my something.

    Oops. That was meant to be a second reply to clafoutis, a tangent on my first reply. It doesn’t make much sense on its own. Sometimes my computer seems to do things on its own…

Even then she knew everyone would run cover for her. If she is elected she will sleep through her entire presidency.
