    The problems remain that Hillary is not an expert anywhere outside of Arkansas and cannot follow advice either. But I envy her air miles.

    I don't recall conservatives being in an uproar when the Christian, Joseph Kony, was running around Uganda kidnapping hundreds of thousands of children for use as child soldiers and sex slaves. But I guess there was no unhealthy obsession with blaming Hillary Clinton for every bad thing that happens in the world back then either.

    Perhaps you should start a thread about Joseph Kony and those who care can contribute.

    Right. He wanted the truth.

    Here was the original question: "Did anybody in the State Department talk to those folks very shortly afterwards?"

    Here was the multitude of answers:


    Hillary's 'What Difference Does It Make' in Context*|*Alan Colmes

    Clinton had answered the question multiple times.
    In every answer she is evading. I was watching it real time, I saw it plain as day.

    Uhh, no, they were shown to have been written by the CIA. They underwent "revisions" and the recently released e-mail which has been made a big ado about nothing noted how some in the White House wanted to make sure the focus was on protests, but the intelligence and the talking points came from the CIA. These are just facts.
    The revisions have been lied about...and there is now every indication that these "revisions" were essentially revising a blank piece of paper into talking points.

    See above. She answered it accurately. Johnson just was trying to get her to say something which would hurt politically (which she did to people unconcerned about context of words) and once Johnson was satisfied the question became a political football, he quit asking questions. Hillary said NOTHING different in the full "what difference does it make" paragraph she hadn't already said once or twice before, but once she gave a soundbite which Johnson/Republicans thought they could use to the ignorants who would never look for the full context of the quote, then Johnson was done.
    BS. Those answers don't answer anything...that's why she was pressed until she had her fit.

    It was simply political. Nothing Clinton said was offensive and anyone saying otherwise is simply not interested in truth, only partisanship. Which is what I said from the very beginning.
    Everything she has said regarding Benghazi is offensive.

    Didn't we have stuff up on Kony and the LRA?

    Wouldn't it be something to see the LRA and Boko Haram come across one another.....huh?

    Here's what she said, as you quoted:

    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.
    Yep, that's true. It IS our job to figure out what happened. And that's exactly what the hearings are trying to accomplish.

    Even in this quote she doesn't acknowledge a terrorist plot against the compound coinciding with 9/11...our failure of intelligence... inadequate protection in a volatile atmosphere. You don't think "What difference does it make" is 'in context' somehow. I think it's being taken in perfect context.

    It makes a huge difference why it happened, what our intelligence knew and when they knew it, whether requests for more protection early on were ignored. A HUGE difference.

    BINGO, Maggie.
    As I mentioned on another thread, by asking what difference does it make and then saying their job is to figure out what happened, she essentially contradicts herself and answers her own question ... but she gave her defenders something they can point to ... and they have been, as you have seen.

    Truthfully B.....if we would have had a Select Committee back then.....she wouldn't have been able to pull that tantrum and get away with what she said. As she knows that committee could take measures Right then and there. Big difference.

    Not to mention.....McCain and them didn't press the issue while talking about their own Careers and what they knew. She was willing to be chastised. Thinking that's all the weight she had to take.

    Yet because BO said she was DA best Eva.....using the fact she flew All those miles. Seems some think she actually got things done? Running around and playing token hostess while at the State and getting some camera time.....does not make one a Secretary of State.

    Just ask John Kerry.

    I await your apology.

    Stating your opinion is wrong is my right.
    Yes, but calling me a liar is still a personal attack.

    Hilda uttered the words for all to hear. I don't even put them in context
    HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHA

    Oh my God...how in the hell do you not understand that's EXACTLY the point I'm making! Holy crap, you just made my point for me. You aren't interested in context, you don't care what she actually said, you just want to twist her words into a way your political team can use for a victory.

    Unbelievable, I never thought someone would actually admit they don't care about the context of words when they are blatantly twisting them into something they are not. That cracked me up. Thank you for proving exactly what I've been saying this whole thread.
    and only one so extreme as to blindly defend her at all costs to their integrity would try to apply her words to a context that doesn't matter.


    Seriously, you have to stop now, my side is hurting from laughing so much. The fact you are now saying that only extreme people care about putting words into the proper context shows you for exactly what you are. Only someone playing team politics or an incredibly dishonest person would take words out of context intentionally just to smear someone else because they don't agree with the letter behind their name. People who care about the truth will ALWAYS want to know the context of what is said.

    Obviously you don't care about the truth, you just want to wear the Republican cheerleading costume. At least you're willing to admit it.

    Then, much like Johnson, you only saw and heard what you wanted to hear. I watched it in real time as well, she gave direct answers to the best of her ability. You're just playing partisan games at this point.

    The revisions have been lied about...and there is now every indication that these "revisions" were essentially revising a blank piece of paper into talking points.
    No, there is not. Just because you don't like the truth, you're not entitled to make up your own and call it fact.

    BS. Those answers don't answer anything
    They answered the questions directly.

    that's why she was pressed until she had her fit.
    If that were true, how come he didn't continue to press her? She didn't say anything in her last paragraph she hadn't already said, why didn't he continue to press her?

    Your answer is BS and we both know it.

    Everything she has said regarding Benghazi is offensive.
    Every lie being told about what she said is offensive to anyone interested in the truth.

    Exactly. The best that you can take away from the Hilary quote is that she wants to figure out what went wrong so long and we don't blame her for it. She has zero tolerance for introspection which makes her absolute poison as a leader.
