    Re: Clinton To Face Congress on Libya Assault.....

    One could say, that this is a bold truth coming out of Hilary. What does it really matter now? It's not election time anymore, they delayed this until after. If Obama didn't win the election, it wouldn't have really hurt her retiring party. I understand the emotions from those who have been following the benghazi story from the beginning. Yes, it's horrible four American people died. That shouldn't have happened! Most of the low information voters out there did not even know about this story!!! Now, weather that's the fault of the MSM for avoiding the story for weeks, or it being football season, I really don't know, but as much as conservatives would like to blame the MSM, I'll go with Football!

    I'm still not sold on the cover up idea. What did they cover up? Fox News had this story the day after, Susan Rice went on every other channel to deny it happened. That's not a cover up that's incompetence. So, we'll see if Rand Paul can "rally the troops" and get hilary fired. Oh wait, a new Secretary of State is already taking her place. Though, the administration, claims it's for mental health reasons. Obama may finally have brushed the Clintons away. So that she can take the hit.

    The cover up is simple. Obama spouted back in October that the bad guys were on the run, in decline. They demonstrated otherwise. The administration continued to lie about what happened to cover Obama's alligator mouth. Susan Rice merely regurgitated the spin. There is a a guy still jail over the issue. Meanwhile one of the suspected perps is walking free and Hillary gets a free pass.

    While that's all really bad. You managed to avoid telling me what exactly they covered up! Anybody who wanted to know the full story, could have easily turned on Fox News, Gone to Drudge or any right wing source and you could have heard about the four dead Americans. The left wing channels know their audience. Who would have thought?? Everybody who cared about libya got all the info they wanted.

    "With all due respect, the fact is that we had four dead Americans," Clinton shot back as she testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, an appearance delayed more than a month because of her ill health.

    "Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?" she said, making chopping motions with her hands for emphasis.

    Republicans harshly criticized her, and President Barack Obama's administration more generally, with one saying the Benghazi attack and the U.S. response displayed "woeful unpreparedness" for the events sweeping the region and another saying Clinton should have been fired.

    Clinton at one point said that she had not seen requests from U.S. officials in Libya seeking additional security.

    "Had I been president at the time and I found that you did not read the cables ... I would have relieved you of your post. I think it's inexcusable," Republican Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky told Clinton.

    "It's wonderful to see you in good health and as combative as ever," Senator John McCain, an Arizona Republican, told Clinton, who responded by laughing. He then went on to say that he categorically rejected one of her answers and found others unsatisfactory.....snip~

    Yes, there were plenty of Hillary groupees and bootlickers on the panel.

    Thas alright.....seeing how the left wants to play over Rand Paul and what he said to Clinton. Thinking that deflection will help them bury Benghazi over and Team Obama's complete and utter Incompetence. They must be upset that this thorn in their side hasn't gone away yet.

    I was appalled when she said "What difference does it make?" then went on to say what needs to be done is preventing it from happening again.

    If she's not interested in what actually happened, to begin with, how the hell does she plan on keeping whatever it was from happening again?

    It's insane but with the MSM on her side she will probably get away with it. It was also crazy to elect BHO for a second term but that's just what happened. After that how can we expect a serious and rational response from the electorate? Stupid people have the right to vote also.

    Now there are no real qualifications necessary to win the Presidency and no consequences for irresponsible and bungling behavior, even when it comes to the loss of American lives. Not enough people care anymore.

    it would seem from the testimony that hillary has a much better understanding of the volatile nature of the area than Bush or any republican presently. She was absolutely right that any american present in those areas trying to operate american diplomatic values faces an assumed risk, and safety in an environment in turmoil where the weapons of the old government have been taken by elements hostile to america is a completely idiotic ideal that cannot possibly bve accomplished, especially when republicans are now clamming up on financial support because they don't want obama to accomplish anything. The pure selfishness of congressional republicans in their attempts to hamper anyu effort obama makes in the area by defunding and blaming him for instability created by the societies of the area and GWB has cost american lives, sapped our strength on foreign fronts, and undermined american values all because they throw a spoiled tantrum every time the black president tries something they supported when Bush was in charge.
    The safety of American citizens, especially diplomatic officials comes before diplomacy. They should have been made safe or allowed to leave the area. That was her JOB. She, and Obama, failed to do that job.
