    The corruption and incompetence of the Hildebeast know no bounds. So horrific is she, the Hildebeast is basically a female Obmananation. She should have been indicted long ago.

    On what charges? More Americans were killed by terrorist attack when Reagan was president than under Obama. Three US sites were blown up in Beirut in the same manner in 17 month period. No one was charged. George Schultz wasn’t dragged in front of Senate or House committee to be personally held responsible.
    Caspar Weinberger wasn’t accused of incompetence when the marines were killed.

    The dog eat your homework again, Lisa?


    You certainly cannot be accused of over-researching your topics.

    Nothing new here, move along. It was all spelled out in a book, hour by hour, a long time ago.BTW, our treaty with Libya, plus the actual protests at the REAL embassy, kept the Marines out of Benghazi, which is why the mercenaries went in and rescued the whole staff at the CIA compound. The choice of where to set up shop in Benghazi was the ambassadors decision. Our State Dept. staffs at many locations haven’t had fully adequate security for years, thanks CONGRESS!

    Hey Lisa, why not let your reader read the entire quote regarding “what difference” does it make?


    Johnson: No, again, we were misled that there were supposedly protests and that something sprang out of that — an assault sprang out of that — and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact, and the American people could have known that within days and they didn’t know that.


    Clinton: With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator. Now, honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is that people were trying in real time to get to the best information. The IC has a process, I understand, going with the other committees to explain how these talking points came out. But you know, to be clear, it is, from my perspective, less important today looking backwards as to why these militants decided they did it than to find them and bring them to justice, and then maybe we’ll figure out what was going on in the meantime.
    Johnson: OK. Thank you, Madame Secretary.

    Yes, yes, that’s all very fascinating. So when are Republicans going to investigate any of the embassy attacks that occurred during the Bush Administration? Those lives mattered as much as the 4 killed in Benghazi, didn’t they?

    Does Lisa read the news? No. Just publishes the same old Orange County tripe. She could have drawn this ‘toon four years ago. And it’s even more meaningless now.

    " So when are Republicans going to investigate any of the embassy attacks that occurred during the Bush Administration?"

    I’ve seen this argument thrown out many times, but I think it may be a false argument. There was no definitive intelligence about State Department facilities being bombed under Bush. In Benghazi, no intelligence was needed to know that something would happen. The previous attacks on the Benghazi facility and the attacks on other foreign interests in Benghazi were glaringly indicative of the probability of some kind of violent incident at the Benghazi compound.

    @leftwingpatriot – You think that putting her words in context helps?

    Let’s be clear about what was going on during this interview. She was testifying to Congress because the Obama Administration’s lie Blew up in their face. They tried to hoodwink the American People into thinking this couldn’t have been anticipated.

    Later investigation showed that she had been asked to provide additional security and failed to do so. She even took responsibility for it … Later when it was no longer easy to sweep under the rug.

    From a very narrow perspective she is correct – It doesn’t matter whether they died because a group of drunken idiots attacked or died because of a coordinated ISIS attack. They would still be dead.

    But for many of us it was one more example of the Obama administration taking liberties with the truth and trying to hide what they knew from the American people

    Other Presidents have done it too and Other Presidents have gotten caught and paid the price for it. Obama and Lynch wouldn’t even allow the full tape of the Orlando shooting to go out because they didn’t like what some of the shooter’s words implied.

    But back to this political stooge. This speaks to her credibility as a leader and I hope this sticks to her like Pig Crap throughout her Presidential campaign.

    Obama and Hillary dithered about what would be the most “politically correct” response to the deteriorating situation in Benghazi—and then Hillary would not take the 3 a.m. phone call. So you libs want to know what crime she is guilty of? Do we have to draw you a picture?

    ROFLMAO – same conclusion as the last half dozen investigations, that there was absolutely NOTHING they did that any other administration would not have done.
    You cons are freaking ridiculous. I’m probably the sole person here that was affected by any embassy protection program in effect when Benghazi went down, and I wasn’t bothered.
    Total political nonsense and “get that Kenyan” foolishness.
    That anyone has swallowed this as “Hillary did something wrong” is enough to tell me they don’t have any lick of common sense when it comes to politics.
    Yet more reasons to get every Republican out of office.

    Because when you don’t read it like a conservative reads the bible, you have no case for any “heartlessness”.

    NOW, about CONservatives and the Bible. I did a lot of farm work as a kid, and one of the guys that would work with us CONSTANTLY went on about drinking alcohol being forbidden to Christians. And on and on and on – not very effective on us, since none of the rest of us did any drinking at all, but he sure did talk about it.
    Finally, one day, I told him “there is a great deal in the Bible about drunkenness, and drinking to excess, but I don’t think there’s anything saying ‘never drink alcohol’”. He swore there was – so I told him to just find that passage and get back to me.
    What he finally came up with was out of Habakkuk, and he gave me a sentence fragment just like the CONS give on that Hillary quote.
    Guess which part of this he quoted at me: “Woe to the one who supplies his neighbor with a drink! You are forcing your bottle on him, making him drunk so you can see them naked.”

    And again, that is right back to what I had told him in the beginning, that it’s all about EXCESSIVE drinking and drunkenness,
    But that’s how I got introduced to the way conservatives quote things out of context. They get trained in their churches and then they just carry that over to anything else they want to “prove”. If it’s good enough for God, it’s good enough for the rest of the world.

    Clearly a well reasoned and informed opinion. Your brilliance is apparent.

    That must be a shock since Republicans and Republican presidents are dedicated to telling the truth no matter how much it hurts.
