Hillary on Causes for Benghazi Attack: “What Difference Does It Make?!?”
Yep, she said that...
So, according to the woman who pushed an innocent video-maker out front as the blame for the Benghazi attack and murders, and then had to climb out over the landslide of mounting evidence to the contrary, the reason we were attacked is not important.
Well, I wonder how the democrats, then Senator Hillary Clinton, and the MSM would have reacted to somebody in the Bush administration for such a disregarding and countering question to the 9/11 Committee?
The democrats on the Senate committee were in full personal praise of Hillary Clinton, and had no real concern for her department's failures that resulted in the deaths of four Americans.
As I suspected, Sec. Clinton took the Eric Holder low-and-gravel-road of saying she didn't see/read any alarming memos from Amb. Stevens prior to the Benghazi attack, and his death and the deaths of three other Americans, while on her watch. She, with the help of the democrats on the sitting committee, made claims of budget cuts as being responsible for the lack of security. That contradicts prior testimony from her office...
“It has been suggested that budget cuts are responsible for a lack of security in Benghazi, and I’d like to ask Miss Lamb,” said Representative Dana Rohrabacher (R., Calif.). “You made this decision personally. Was there any budget consideration and lack of budget which lead you not to increase the number of people in the security force there?”
“No, sir,” said Lamb.
Nor did she take responsibility for the talking points Susan Rice used on Sunday TV talk shows shortly after the attack (*BUMP-BUMP*)...
And Sen. Rand Paul reads Hillary a brief list of things her department spent money on, in spite of alleged lack of funding for Benghazi...
Translation: "I would've fired your ass..."
And here is another example of more important spending by the State Department (I knew there'd be a way to blame "climate change/global warming" for Benghazi) than security for our ambassador and other Americans hired by our government in a post-overthrown Libya...
In a May 3, 2012, email, the State Department denied a request by a group of Special Forces assigned to protect the U.S. embassy in Libya to continue their use of a DC- 3 airplane for security operations throughout the country.
The subject line of the email, on which slain Ambassador Chris Stevens was copied, read: “Termination of Tripoli DC-3 Support.”
Four days later, on May 7, the State Department authorized the U.S. embassy in Vienna to purchase a $108,000 electric vehicle charging station for the embassy motor pool’s new Chevrolet Volts. The purchase was a part of the State Department’s “Energy Efficiency Sweep of Europe” initiative, which included hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars on green program expenditures at various U.S. Embassies.
In fact, at a May 10 gala held at the U.S. embassy in Vienna, the ambassador showcased his new Volts and other green investments as part of the U.S. government’s commitment to “climate change solutions.”
The event posting on the embassy website read: “Celebrating the Greening of the Embassy.”
While the embassy in Vienna was going green, the consulate in Benghazi was getting bombed, and little was done to stop it.
Here is a short list of questions that were NOT asked this morning, but hopefully will be covered by the House GOP this afternoon when they greet Sec. Clinton:
1. Who ordered the "stand down"?
2. Who ordered the "stand down"?
3. Who ordered the "stand down"?
4. Who ordered the "stand down"?
5. Where are the 30 survivors, Sec. Clinton?
6. Where are the 30 survivors, Sec. Clinton?
7. Where are the 30 survivors, Sec. Clinton?
8. Why did you tell one of the parents of one of the fallen Navy SEALS that you would get the director of the video you were holding responsible for their son's death?
Basically Sec. Hillary Clinton said, This is a hard job, ya know...
Here is my summary of Sec. Clinton's testimony in front of the Senate committee this morning...
