Hillary: ‘I Don’t Hold Any Ill Feeling’ Against Benghazi Families Who Misunderstood Me

Hillary: ‘I Don’t Hold Any Ill Feeling’ Against Benghazi Families Who Misunderstood Me

Also blames email scandal on people who ‘Made the Wrong Call’ in sending her classified material

Hillary Clinton appeared on Fox News Sunday this morning, and repeated her denial that she told the families of the men killed in Benghazi that the attack was caused by a video.

She went one step further, and patronized the families, declaring “I don’t hold any ill feeling” towards family members who “may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”

Later in the interview, Hillary again dodged responsibility. Wallace played the statement by FBI Director James Comey that—contrary to what Clinton had claimed—she did in fact send and receive classified material on her home-brewed email system. This time, Hillary blamed some of the professionals who “made the wrong call” by sending her classified material. “I relied on and had every reason to rely on” their judgment, said Clinton.

CHRIS WALLACE: One of the most dramatic moments in the Republican convention was when pat Smith, the mother of Sean Smith, one of the people who died in Benghazi, stood up before the convention and blamed you for her son’s death.

PAT SMITH: I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son. That’s personally.

WALLACE: She and the father of Tyrone Woods both say that on the day that their sons’ bodies were returned to the United States that you came up to them and you said it was all because of a video, not terrorism. Now, I know some of the other families disagree with this, and I know you deny it. The question is, why would they make that up?

HILLARY CLINTON: Chris, my heart goes out to both of them. Losing a child under any circumstances, especially in this case, two State Department employees, extraordinary men both of them, two CIA contractors gave their lives protecting our country, our values. I understand the grief and the incredible sense of loss that can motivate that. As other members of families who lost loved ones have said, that’s not what they heard, I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.

. . .

HILLARY: I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, well, among those 300 people, they made the wrong call. At the time, there was no reason in my view to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behalf of our country.

Will Hillary’s condescending attack on the Benghazi heroes’ families be treated with the same media fury as Donald Trump’s criticism of the parents of Army Capt. Humayun Khan? Don’t hold your breath.

“…may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.” and “…they made the wrong call.” So the buck stops somewhere else. In the military a commanding officer is responsible for all that occurs, or that fails to occur under his command. You are on your own if you report up to or are in proximity of Hillary.

Yeah, I have known that for years, but sheesh….always someone else to blame.

    Who, as the head of the nation, will she blame when things go wrong? She ain’t no Harry Truman!

      healthguyfsu in reply to herm2416. | July 31, 2016 at 12:55 pm

      I’m sure she will use the go-to Bush blaming that Obama has perpetuated with full cover from the media.

      inspectorudy in reply to herm2416. | July 31, 2016 at 3:15 pm

      Oh, I don’t know. 0bama (That’s a zero not a capital O in obama), has blamed Bush for all of his failures so we can expect the queen of lies to continue that “Unifying” policy. After this interview, I hold no false illusions that this woman could do any legitimate project with legitimate people. She would find a way to hire her donors and cronies no matter the appearance. When asked about her plan to do all of these things she said she would “Create millions of new jobs”. She still believes that the government creates jobs. I despise and hate this woman and all she represents and I am not fond of Trump but to me there is simply no choice but to vote for Trump. A “No” vote would actually be a vote for this cackling
      witch. That is not acceptable.

The sheer utter hatred I have for the Bitch of Benghazi knows no bounds.

    rabidfox in reply to herm2416. | July 31, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    That comment literally made me nauseated. I shudder to think how the Benghazi families will feel on reading that. SHE has no hard feelings?!!! There isn’t a word in the English language that conveys my disgust for this …. female, human impersonator!

Horrible, horrible, person. SHE set up the server, not the people who sent her classified information. She comes across as a deeply unhappy person

“I relied on … the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked”
if you hold a high level security clearance and can’t tell from the content that a document is, or should be, classified then you’re either an idiot or lying (or both).

See, it’s one thing to simply lie; “I did not have sex with that woman…”

But it’s really a whole different sin to tell a transparent lie like you expect anyone…or everyone…to believe it, or you don’t care if they know you for a liar or not. You’re just supposed to eat crap and fall in line.

We have the tape of Hellary saying what she did over the flag-draped caskets of the four Americans, and what she said.

    Look on the bright side of it.

    Thanks to Hillary, we have full permission to get furious because of the film Hillary’s America or Clinton Cash and express our displeasure at Hillary in a huge riot and protest.

    After all, she said it was okay for a movie to cause the deaths of four of our countrymen.

    And, according to HELLary it seems, two wrongs do make a right ( as in the right to do something ).

I’m with Her… The opiates are that good.

DieJustAsHappy | July 31, 2016 at 12:22 pm

I don’t care how many times it’s attempted to re-image her she still remains one scuzzy human being.

While some of us have been carrying on the battle over the weekend involving multiple dozens of contacts, calling out donor bought republicans, some “principled conservatives”, always to be found on the sidelines insist this woman is preferable to the republican candidate overwhelmingly chosen by the republican voters.

Their ego Trumps everything else.

The real Trump, 2016.

    So? I ask this as someone who has not said that Hillary is preferable to Trump . . . so what? What do you care what people you clearly disdain think, say, or do? Particularly as your candidate is sailing to a landslide victory? It’s not rational to keep braying about what a relatively small number of #NeverTrumpers who are #ImWithHer believe or say. And it’s getting very old, secondwind. Very.

      I’ll split the difference.
      To both of you.
      I see I have a total of 4 down votes & 2 up.

      I see this site as one of the battlegrounds I’m engaged on. Just one of a number. Not an overly important one.

      You both see it as your property. You’re both very territorial on that point. You both take offense when an “outsider” comes in & disputes your claim. You’ve both expressed that attitude on several occasions. Including to others than myself. You’ve both had a hand in getting several of those “outsiders” banned.

      I take offense to both of your & your other parrots assertion to that claim.

      I also take exception to both of your claims that what I’m doing here & elsewhere is pointless & without effect. But nevermind that, that’s who both of you are ; I won’t change your perception nor do I intend to try. As I’ve said on a number of occasions, my purpose is aimed it the larger audience of this site.

      That’s all I’ll say on this for now. I

        Ps ;
        I’ll also note my original comment wasn’t addressed to either of you. Yet you both felt compelled to respond & attack me over points you got wrong & don’t understand.

          If both of you expect me to respond to your repetitive drivel, this is all you’ll get. Though I note that though you claim to be put off by what I say you certainly do run on & on over it. Apparently I’ve yet again touched a nerve with both of you.

          Making my point & purpose yet again.

          I never claimed that your repetitive taunts and redundant expressions of sophomoric angst didn’t get on my last nerve, secondwind. In fact, I rather thought I made that clear in my first comment to you (in which I said your tired braying was getting very old. Very.).

          I don’t like reading the same thing over and over . . . even when I agree with it. I certainly don’t like reading the same thing over and over when there is no point being made at all–you may not be aware of this, but griping about the character of people with whom you disagree is not a point. Repeating the same ridicule, expressions of disdain and of your own sense of moral superiority is not a point. It’s all just self-puffery that is indeed grating in its incessant repetition.

          If your super-duper, double-top-secret mission is to annoy thinking people who are interested in a range of things beyond the upcoming presidential election or in your inane, blinkered view of all things being all Trump, all the time . . . consider yourself a raging success.

        This site is not, though, your personal “battleground” for your own brand of citizen activism (an activism that apparently entails spamming the same sing-song taunts over and over. Newsflash: anyone who is going to be swayed by your repetitive, banal hectoring is already happily on the Trump train). I don’t mind if you take offense at anything I say; you have that right, but I do wish to point out that Professor Jacobson doesn’t need me (or Rags) to dictate to him what his thoughts are about individual commenters and whether or not they should be banned. That’s just silliness.

        Ragspierre in reply to secondwind. | July 31, 2016 at 3:01 pm

        “I see I have a total of 4 down votes & 2 up.”

        Interesting. You crave and feed on approval.

        “I see this site as one of the battlegrounds I’m engaged on. Just one of a number. Not an overly important one.”

        Yes, another pitiful expression of your need for some importance, part of your inferiority complexssssss.

        “You both see it as your property. You’re both very territorial on that point. You both take offense when an “outsider” comes in & disputes your claim. You’ve both expressed that attitude on several occasions. Including to others than myself. You’ve both had a hand in getting several of those “outsiders” banned.”

        In total, that’s a lie, and you’re a liar. I’ve never had any other idea than that I’m a poster at sufferance by Prof. Bill. And you can email the man, and he’ll tell you I’ve never lobbied anybody, at any time, for anyone to be banned. You are a paranoid nutter.

        “I take offense to both of your & your other parrots assertion to that claim.”

        Again, part of your delusions.

        “I also take exception to both of your claims that what I’m doing here & elsewhere is pointless & without effect. But nevermind that, that’s who both of you are ; I won’t change your perception nor do I intend to try. As I’ve said on a number of occasions, my purpose is aimed it the larger audience of this site.”

        Then you should never have minded that, as members of that “larger audience” sometimes some of us feel impelled to crush your bullshit. Which is legion. As here with your straw men.

    Ragspierre in reply to secondwind. | July 31, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    “While some of us have been carrying on the battle over the weekend involving multiple dozens of contacts, calling out donor bought republicans…”

    Typical doublesucks delusional self-congratulation here.

    …some “principled conservatives”, always to be found on the sidelines[,] insist this woman is preferable to the republican candidate overwhelmingly chosen by the republican voters.”

    I don’t know of anyone having made that claim. I have read some few who say that her ELECTION is preferable strategically to T-rump’s (a view I don’t share). But I’ve read nobody who says SHE is preferable to T-rump.

    See, this is a REAL straw man fallacy. Actually, it could count as several…!!!

Hillary instructed her aide to strip the classification headers off and email her “talking points” over a non secure network. I suppose that was the fault of someone else as well?

…I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.

If anyone knows about faulty memory, it Hilliary. She has said “I don’t recall” in her testimony more times than Bubba has had sex with other women.

    The Friendly Grizzly in reply to rinardman. | August 1, 2016 at 8:14 am

    All of those “I don’t recall”s makes me ask: Has anyone ever seen Mrs. Clinton and Atty. Gen. John Mitchell in the same room at the same time?

How very magnanimous of you, Empress.

Common Sense | July 31, 2016 at 1:19 pm

Crooked Hillary is one sick lady.

A Compulsive liar who can not and will not change.

God help us if she is elected!

riverdreams | July 31, 2016 at 1:45 pm

What about the more than 600 emails before Benghazi, warning of the situation. More than 171 she actually participated in and the fact that she overrode Pentegon Generals time and time again ordering them to stand down when they tried to send help? It’s unbelievable that she can still show her face and hasn’t resigned ratherl less still be running for president. When you add that to all the other stuff, like voter fraud, the 2 deaths of witnesses who were to testify against her, the DNC email scandal calling Hispanics taco bowls, using the “N” word, calling gays “homos”, plotting to put damning ads on Craigslist pretending to be Trump, and seriously, I could go on all day long. How can she show her face? She’s counting on the fact that a large majority of people are out of touch and don’t follow this stuff and planning on rigging the elections.

The hole in her tongue is probably a psychosomatic reaction to all her lies. Or HPV.

So Hillary trashes the Benghazi moms, but is all behind the parents of one Muslim soldier that they got on stage for the convention. What’s the difference?

When it became obvious the lies were untenable Hillary changed her line from “I didn’t send or receive” to “I didn’t send or receive anything marked”. Nothing was marked because it was deliberately stripped of markings, but let’s all forget that.

Claygate Pearmain | July 31, 2016 at 2:52 pm

I am curious about Khizr Khan, so I took the time to try to connect some dots.

“Records obtained by Breitbart News reveal that Hillary Clinton’s own lawyer’s firm represented the company and handled the patent for the program that Clinton used on her private email account.

“New York tax attorney Howard Topaz became Bill and Hillary Clintons’ personal tax lawyer in 2004 and started filling out the couple’s tax returns. Topaz was a partner at Hogan & Hartson, which later merged to become known as Hogan Lovells, where Topaz continues to practice. The firm’s lawyers were major donors to Hillary Clinton’s first presidential campaign.”

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/08/25/exclusive-hillary-used-email-monitoring-company-linked-to-her-personal-lawyer/

Khizr Khan is Pakistani. He lived in the UAE before coming to the USA. (His son was born in the UAE.) He has an MA from Harvard, or at least studied for one.

He works in the legal profession. He’s not an attorney, but a “litigation technology specialist” – in other words, he knows the information technology that is involved in a modern law practice.

As a matter of fact, from 2000-2007 he was the manager of litigation technology for Hogan & Hartson.

http://www.law.com/sites/almstaff/2016/07/29/dnc-speaker-khizr-khan-a-man-of-character-say-former-big-law-colleagues/

Since leaving the direct employment of Hogan & Hartson, Khan has worked as a consultant, presumably in the litigation technology field, but it is not known who his clients have been.

So he’s a former (and possibly current?) IT guy at a DC law firm which was involved with managing Hillary’s email system.

I think we deserve to know more about this man, and precisely how he is connected with Hillary Clinton, and why he has taken on this role as her unassailable moral authority figure de la semaine.

Obviously, yes, his son really did serve, and he really did die in combat. He’s not lying about that.

But I question Khizr Khan’s motives. And I think there’s more to this than garden-variety taqiyya.

PS: Loretta Lynch also worked at Hogan, from 2002-2010.

No wonder Hollywood is all for her! She is one hell of a actress to tell such lies with a straight face.

JackRussellTerrierist | July 31, 2016 at 3:36 pm

What an astonishingly evil witch she is.

I have a basic question. What happens if Hillary has to drop out?
She cancelled a campaign stop today. It’s not a big secret that her health is shot. So a basic scenario:

What if after the second debate, she has lost two debates and ios sagging in the polls and then “suddenly” her health fails and she drops out.

I have doubts that it will be Kaine. What does the law say?

PS: Maybe Keiffer Suttherland.

    rokiloki in reply to RodFC. | July 31, 2016 at 4:53 pm

    don’t know. Maybe a rush replacement like Biden? Then wher he loses, the democrats can just whine about the unfairness of it all and spend the next four years demanding another election.

    Plus, I’m sure Obama would step up and volunteer to replace her as candidate.

    Eastwood Ravine in reply to RodFC. | July 31, 2016 at 11:19 pm

    Technically, Tim Kaine should be the next-in-line, since he was nominated at the convention. Not to mention that Kaine’s name would likely be printed on ballots at that point.

    I think the Torricelli maneuver won’t fly in a presidential election.

      I’ll agree with you. The Torricelli maneuver was a one-off. All they needed to do was convince one judge (or a state supreme) and they were in. If they were to try this nation-wide, they would be fighting that uphill battle in at least twenty states, some of which went for Bernie.

“My heart goes out to both of them.”

Watch her face at the Benghazi hearings. She has nothing but contempt for for the men who died and their families.

Eastwood Ravine | July 31, 2016 at 5:05 pm

At least her husband was able to “project” empathy and sincerity. Hillary cannot. She wears her contempt on her sleeve.

May God help and have mercy upon the United States if she becomes President.

VaGentleman | July 31, 2016 at 5:31 pm

At this point what difference does it make?

Vote #NeverTrump – she’ll fix it.

“I don’t hold any ill feeling for someone who in that moment may not fully recall everything that was or wasn’t said.”

How in the world does one recall something that wasn’t said?

Lawyers just puke from the mouth.

    rabidfox in reply to lwm. | July 31, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    lwm; this goes way beyond just lawyer puke. Far beyond. She is so dishonest and corrupt that her words don’t even enter the same UNIVERSE as common lawyer puke!

That’s the same as apologizing to someone saying, “I’m sorry you feel that way.”

So the parents’ grief and calling them liars (her minions) is nothing compared to the Noble Hillary who holds no “ill feelings.” Wow. Just. Wow.

But as for the classification issue?

1. If others (plural) made the “wrong call” and she received classified material SHE SHOULD HAVE REPORTED IT IMMEDIATELY. That’s HER job.

2. She said she relied on the “professionals” — the PROFESSIONALS told her she needed a separate phone and government email access which she refused.

How many lies can this human impersonator tell?

The people who work for this country every single day are the ones who thought to challenge it — Hillary’s minions surrounded her and blew the “professionals” off, especially when one or two were rebuffed. After all the Empress’s
“personal business” (Global Initiative and Foundation) stuff shouldn’t be out there.

Please. Please. Please. Let there be an October or sooner surprise.

I have never seen such craven corruption. She’s a Spiro Agnew in drag. Or maybe that’s LBJ …

Hillary Clinton is a vile human being. And she earns that distinction day after day.
