    Yeah good luck with that. She's been patient with Obama. There's no way in hell she doesn't run. Her hubris will not allow it. She's running, and she's hoping the media will protect her as much as they do Obama. Count on it!

    I guess as a strategy to push Benghazi past the election it worked well, but is was so flimsy and based on so may lies that they needed a fully compliant media wing to pull it off.

    And they would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those darn survivors!

    Re: Benghazi Talking points went through 12 revisions at State Dept.

    yesterday:

    LISA MYERS, NBC NEWS SENIOR INVESTIGATIVE CORRESPONDENT: First of all, in her Congressional testimony, which is her only sustained questioning on this subject -- in her Congressional testimony she basically tried to slam the door on any further questions by saying, remember the dramatic statement, 'what difference does it make?'

    This reopens, I think, the questions. I don't think we know yet to what extent this does or might damage Hillary Clinton. I think the administration's biggest vulnerability here is -- first of all, how do you send diplomats into this dangerous area to facilities that do not even meet minimum security standards? How do you then reduce their level of security by taking away some of the military personnel that they had? And then, how do you, when you know these people are in trouble, not find someway to move heaven and earth to at least get help there. (Hardball, May 9, 2013)
    NBC's Lisa Meyers: Benghazi Hearing "Reopens" Case Against Hillary Clinton | RealClearPolitics

    coffee joe's panel, yesterday morning, 7:00 of chat---what defense is offered (richard wolffe) is pretty weak and halfway

    Scarborough: There Should Be Long Hearings Over Benghazi

    "the review that was made is not adequate," lisa myers

    "this doesn't pass the sniff test," joe

    "we're getting into some dangerous territory for this white house," joe

    "this clearly has a yuck factor," dumb donnie deutsch

    "that's cheryl mills for you, she clearly crossed the line," mr wolffe

    yes, we are getting into some very dangerous territory for this very worried white house

    and unless some big change comes to turn things it's only gonna get worse

    cuz we are just beginning

    think 18 months time frame

    stay tuned

    Oh, I'm not saying she won't run, but the DNC would rather she not at this point.

    "It's 3PM and you're far from safe, and in dire need of help, who do you pray to God DOESN'T answer the phone."

    I had been following the story and happened to see her on Meet the Press. Couldn't believe what was coming out of her mouth - but any surprise I had there paled in comparison to the shock I had over the press response to the attacks (and to the WH narrative) - and that's really saying something since I had a pretty low regard for them to begin with. "Fully compliant" is right - to the point of publishing WH talking points as news.

    The thing that will be most interesting is what Hillary does when she is backed into a corner. The testimony and the ABC report may have effectively backed he into that corner at this point, and we know that she and Bill hate Obama with a white hot passion, and Obama is still floating above this because nobody has asked the questions, and the President has gone to silent running. She could easily tell everything she knows about Obama's involvement simply to drag him down.

    Hell, if she could pin this on Obama it would be a race between her and Joe "F**king" Biden in the 2016 primaries.

    As I see it, at this point there are four scenarios that are equally likely regarding Obama involvement: Either he was involved in the decision making process of Benghazi, or he wasn't, and he was involved in the heavy editing of the talking points or he wasn't. As the Commander in Chief, any of the four combinations is damning. He is either complicit or utterly incompetent, or some combination of the two.

    If the past provides any indication, we'll be hearing a lot of:

    "Not that I remember, I mean I certainly don't think so"
    "I have no specific recollection"
    "I would have no way of remembering that"
    "I honestly don't recall"
    "I might have, but I really can't say"
    "I don't have direct knowledge of that"
    "WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE!"

    I don't think she was sufficiently backed into a corner in that testimony. The hearing did not have access to the damning information that is now a matter of public record regarding the State Department's and Jay Carney's outright lies to the American people.
