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

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton faces tough questions in her long-awaited congressional testimony concerning the assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.



    Clinton is the sole witness Wednesday at back-to-back hearings before the Senate and House foreign policy panels on the September raid, an independent panel's review that harshly criticized the State Department and the steps the Obama administration is taking to beef up security at U.S. facilities worldwide.

    Clinton's testimony will focus on the attack after more than three months of Republican charges that the Obama administration ignored signs of a deteriorating security situation in Libya and cast an act of terrorism as mere protests over an anti-Muslim video in the heat of a presidential election. Washington officials suspect that militants linked to al-Qaida carried out the attack.

    State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Tuesday that Clinton would focus on the Accountability Review Board's independent assessment of the attack and the State Department's work to implement its findings.

    "Systematic failures and leadership and management deficiencies at senior levels within two bureaus of the State Department resulted in a Special Mission security posture that was inadequate for Benghazi and grossly inadequate to deal with the attack that took place," the panel said in its report last month.

    The report singled out the Bureau of Diplomatic Security and the Bureau of Near East Affairs, saying there appeared to be a lack of cooperation and confusion over protection at the mission in Benghazi. The report described a security vacuum in Libya after rebel forces toppled the decades-long regime of strongman Moammar Gadhafi.....snip~

    Indeed.....Time for Clinton to pay the Piper, before she leaves Washington. Now is the time to bring down all that Incompetency down around Clinton's Ears. Especially since she will be Stepping down and leaving Washington for a time being. The good news is there are 3 Republicans that are now on this panel that are going to go after Hillary. Time to take the Kid Gloves off and let Clinton here some things she don't like. Such as you failed Madam Secretary. You also know what the security was like and the situation on the ground after the ousting of Gadhafi. These guys need to go after her full-tilt, get her so pist she cant see straight. Hopefully causing her to give up Obama.

    As soon as they do.....watch Hill-bo cite that she cannot answer the question due to an ongoing FBI investigation. Which has produced hardly any information at all. The FBI has been dragging their azz on this issue from the get go. Might have to do with.....that they shouldn't be investigating Anything concerning Intel and on Foreign Soil in the first place. Anyone else think the FBI is woefully inadequate to when it comes to Clandestine affairs and being on a battlefield? Message to the FBI.....GTFO of the way and stay where you belong. Home.....safe, where you can't screw anything up!

    Don't expect her to talk about why Stevens was out on that Street 2 hrs earlier with the Turkish Ambassador, considering the Turks had removed all Embassy personnel during the Gadhafi Clash. Also they should make that distinction over that Militia and who they think was connected to AQ over the attack. That would be the same militia that was providing security for our people and then later set up Roadblocks and were firing on our people.

    One other issue they need to bring up to Clinton and Obama.....Why have they not asked for the Head of the Sunni Cleric in Egypt who Never saw the Anti Muslim Film.....But yelled Fire on All the Worlds a Stage. Clinton needs to answer that question considering she talked to Morsi. If we can lock up the guy who made the film over his probation. Then we should be able to lock up that Sunni Cleric in Egypt. If he refuses.....then we should send a hit team to put two in his hea. Thus making sure such will never happen again!

    She will assert her "disappointment" with the outcome, point to a few underlings that "made mistakes in judgement", claim total ingnorance of "the details" and assure all that changes have been made in the areas found to have been "less than perfect". This will go exactly as the fast & fuzzy hearings and investigation did, people died but nobody at "the top" had any "direct involvement" and executive privilege will be used to assure that the official "top level" non-involvement story remains intact. Nothing to see here folks, move along...

    McCain says there was a cover and has been moved to this Committee. Rubio and Rand Paul are the other two that are expected to take it to Clinton. Especially Rand Paul!

    I don't like the fact that she can hide behind the FBI investigation. None of them should be able to do this if being forced to testify before Congress and or any Congressional Committees. She should have to answer those questions as she was there before the hapless FBI was assigned to this Issue. Also they should ask her wheres the Autopsy on Stevens Body?

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

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday defended her handling of the September 11, 2012 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi that killed four Americans, an event that threatens to stain her legacy at the State Department.



    "I take responsibility," Clinton said, echoing comments she first made in a TV interview on October 15 and stressing that she has accepted all of the recommendations of an independent review panel that ultimately held lower-level officials responsible.

    The official inquiry concluded that the State Department was completely unprepared to deal with the attack, citing "leadership and management" deficiencies, poor coordination and unclear lines of authority in Washington. The inquiry did not find Clinton personally at fault.

    A separate Senate committee report said the State Department made a "grievous mistake" in keeping the Benghazi mission open despite inadequate security and increasingly alarming threat assessments in the weeks before the attack.....snip~

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

    Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., a member of the Senate committee, questioned the status of the FBI investigation and whether any individual has been implicated.

    "My last understanding is that there is no one currently still being held for questioning, no one's been prosecuted for this or held accountable even though the president promised that to be the case," he said.....snip~


    Yeah.....go figure! Her marathon day? I hope there is more than this BS!

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton choked up on Wednesday as she defended her handling of the September 11 attack on the U.S. mission in the Libyan city of Benghazi, an event that threatens to stain her legacy and any presidential hopes she may still harbor.



    Clinton cast the incident as part of a long history of such violence as well as the result of regional instability since the Arab Spring of popular revolutions began in 2011.

    Senator Bob Corker, a senior Republican, kept up the criticism of the Obama administration, saying the Benghazi attack and the U.S. response displayed "woeful unpreparedness" for the events sweeping the region.

    Four State Department officials were put on administrative leave following the board's report.....snip~

    Yeah.....now she went emotional on how she put her arms around some of the family members. How she stood next to the President and watch those Caskets come in. Again she says she takes credit.....for the screw up. Damn Right she should with the way she started off explaining about the Arab spring tells you what mindset Team Obama had. despite the evidence on the ground.

    Btw they are running a live feed on it!
