    Well, I can find the web site, but I'll bet you can't... or if you did you didn't know what you were looking at, or you simply lied.

    This is why people insist on links to "information" like you've been trying to peddle. People lie and I think I know one that did a pretty poor job of it.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    MODERATOR: Good afternoon, everyone. Thank you for joining us for today’s call. Our participants today are [Senior Administration Official One]. And also briefing today is [Senior Administration Official Two]. This is just a reminder, this call is on background, so please be sure to use the described attributions when referencing our briefers. With that, I’ll turn it over to our Administration – senior Administration officials to make a few remarks and then we’ll open it up for questions.

    SENIOR ADMINISTRATION OFFICIAL ONE: Good morning. We view today’s designation of Boko Haram and Ansaru as Foreign Terrorist Organizations and Specially Designated Global Terrorists by the Secretary of State as part of our efforts to help Nigeria succeed in adopting a comprehensive approach to address its domestic terrorist threat. Nigeria’s comprehensive approach must include enhancing security force professionalism, building confidence in the people of northern Nigeria, by meeting their legitimate economic needs, and ensuring adherence to the rule of law and accountability. All of our assistance to Nigeria stresses the importance of protecting civilians, adhering to the rule of law, and respecting human rights.

    So, if you could enlighten us, exactly what did she mean?

    Please be aware in advance that the reply should make said context absolutely clear...as, now that we are so many months down the road of "deny, deny, deny", "old news" and abject degrading of questioners, the quote has stood undefended by her, and is something of a metaphor for the Obama administration's attitude toward those who serve, that the reply itself may likely be worthy for "what difference, at this point, does it make?" with likely much better grammar.
    One thing to remember about Clintons...when they act offended, they're lying.

    You think this is bad, but Clinton also refused to include the Taliban on the State Depts list of terrorist organizations.

    "The State Department under Hillary Clinton fought hard against placing the al Qaeda-linked militant group Boko Haram on its official list of foreign terrorist organizations for two years. And now, lawmakers and former U.S. officials are saying that the decision may have hampered the American government's ability to confront the Nigerian group that shocked the world by abducting hundreds of innocent girls."

    More Hilary dithering that resulted in tragedy.
    But she didn't blame the kidnappings on a Youtube video. Neither, so far, has Obama.

    No, they've learned their lesson. Now they attack kidnappers with Twitter.

    The point is this supposed "brilliant stateswoman" hasn't really achieved very much, even lefties struggle to name her successes.

    If you actually read her full quote (or watch the video), it's pretty clear why she's upset. She had already answered the question being asked multiple times, but the person grilling her wouldn't accept her answer. He kept wanting to make it political, when that's not what that setting should have been. That setting should have been about what went wrong with security and how to make sure it never happens again.
    It's frustrating having to repeat oneself all the time for people who are too lazy to look for their own answers.

    No, it was her frustration at being pressed to tell the truth. An uncomfortable truth she knows illustrates her incompetence and a truth she did not want to tell. So, instead, she attempted to belittle the notion that knowing what occurred is in any way relevant to ensuring it doesn't happen again. In so doing, she relayed her lack of compassion, understanding of leadership, and a complete lack of personal integrity.
