    Exclusive: Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi chapter




    Hillary Clinton released the Benghazi chapter from her new book to Politico. She obviously wants everything out way in advance for her run for the White House. And scolding Republicans for politicizing the attack on the backs of the four dead Americans.

    Exclusive: Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi chapter

    Hillary Clinton offers a detailed account of the deadly attack on the American embassy in Benghazi — and a pointed rebuttal to Republican critics who’ve laced into her over the incident — in a much-anticipated chapter of her forthcoming book, “Hard Choices,” obtained by POLITICO.
    “Those who exploit this tragedy over and over as a political tool minimize the sacrifice of those who served our country,” Clinton writes in the gripping chapter, “Benghazi: Under Attack.”

    Casting doubt on the motivations of congressional Republicans who have continued to investigate the attacks, including with an upcoming House select committee, Clinton continues: “I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans. It’s just plain wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country. Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.”

    I'm very sure that it's her account. The account she wants put forward. It may also, in fact, be what she knows about it and all she knows about it. It does not mean that it's all there is though or that it's all the facts. She was not the only person in the decision chain nor was she the only person who had the authority to give orders during the incident or to frame the statements made later about what happened (also known as, and so far proved to be, lies).

    Hmm...is it worse to politicize the failures and lies of the regime or is it worse to fail and lie about 4 dead Americans?

    I've never written what you wrote, nor ever referred to such violence as caused by a lame video that wasn't even presented in the country in question. When you want to illustrate what I say use quotes otherwise you can apologize for attributing words to me that I've never written.

    If you are saying that you don't believe the issue of the 2nd amendment trumps any outrage at the near monthly mass shooting, then yes, I apologize. Otherwise, get bent.

    This is heartwarming:

    More cavalierly dismissing mass shootings and making it all about gun control.

For the government (say like a diane scam artist feinstein) to say ban guns/trust us the government to protect you while turning police into a para military organization just forces common sense on people - HELL NO to GUN CONTROL.
    I like this next one in particular. "...while crying about the losses of a few." I guess a "few" deaths only matter if they're ambassadors killed by terrorists in a foreign land. Citizens killed in mass shootings? No sweat!

For ever irrelevant. That's how you should be viewed.
    Or on the significance of reports on mass shootings. Yep, the "big impacts" of victims of mass shootings are just hyped up.

    The reactions to mass shootings is "hysteria":

I dare say those gang murders you noted aren't impacted either. You know who IS impacted? The honest and dedicated civilians that MIGHT have been armed and ready to defend themselves if it weren't for politicians of control.
    Yikes, in this next one Calgun really does mourn 12 dead in one shooting (albeit instantly making it about the terrible antis). Guess I'm wrong about him after all. He'll definitely call for an investigation into laws that allow for the ease of acquiring them. Looks like I have some apologizing to do.

    This is going to be a bad one, the anti's will come out the wood
    work shortly.

    Must be a terrible time for the families there, wishing them well.
    Ha ha, just kidding. He goes on to call the victims of mass shootings statistically irrelevant compared to the deaths caused by governments. In fact, reading through Calgun's posts that was pretty much his primary theme.

    Yep, all that heartwarming soul searching from the side that wants an investigation into Benghazi.

    the cloud that will always hang over her head is being part of the lie the administration pushed day after day about the attack, it was about the video and her comment "what difference does it make".

    And yet I still never used the words you attributed to me with quotes. Which makes you a liar and one willing to misrepresent others.

    My adamant stance on our civil liberty and right to own guns has little to do with a political leader lying to us about why US citizens were killed in a full on terrorist incursion against a US facility they failed to provide adequate security for.

    Okay, so you do believe then that the 2nd amendment trumps outrage over the victims of mass shootings, and therefore I was 100% correct. Combined with your belief that those victims are statistically irrelevant, it's clear that your outrage over the four deaths in Benghazi is feigned, and that people like you have less moral authority in this matter than anybody else. You faking outrage over the ambassadors' deaths is like someone at a beef ranch criticizing a poultry farm for killing animals.
