Today, I decided to do a Special Edition of The Political War Zone. My reasoning is clear and simple: the presstitute media and Clinton enablers did not do their job. Any honest assessment of Hillary's testimony would come to the conclusion it was a catastrophe. But you wouldn't know that by reading the main stream media. So let's take a few minutes to review facts that will make it clear Hillary Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State is a classic example of failed leadership.
- The Accountability Review Board released a report in mid-December that concluded the attack on the Benghazi consulate was the result of State Department's "systemic failure" in addressing the security needs of the consulate. The ARB interviewed over 100 officials and poured over thousands of documents and hundreds of hours of video tape.
- The Daily Beast reported in the FIVE months leading up to the 9/11/12 attack there were two bombings on the Benghazi consulate. In addition, threats against Ambassador Stevens were posted on Facebook prior to the attack.
- There were 13 terror attacks PRIOR to the 9/11 attack near consulate grounds.
- We know that security personnel were WITHDRAWN one month prior to the attack.
- We know consulate personnel, including the Ambassador, warned the State Department of the deteriorating environment prior to the 9/11 attack. They asked for more security but were denied.
- We know the FBI and security personnel knew the attack was not spontaneous or the result of some anti-Muslim film on the evening of 9/11/12 at about 6 p.m. Yet, State Department officials and Obama administration officials continued using the film as the reason for the attack days after the attack. Susan Rice was dispatched and made her rounds on Sunday morning pundit shows referencing the film when they knew otherwise.
- We now know the time line the administration presented are in conflict with the facts.
- And we are now to believe, as Hillary Clinton testified just last week, "I was focused on keeping people safe?" Adding defiantly and with insult: "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
Why are we skeptical Mrs. Hillary Clinton? Because this is the administration---the one your are still working for---that wanted to hold a trial for the 9/11/01 terrorists in DOWNTOWN Manhattan. This is the administration that has rolled out the red carpet to the Muslim Brotherhood thugs (in fact, just recently, even sending them over a dozen F-16's and many tanks). This is an administration that said we have al-Qaeda on the run when we now know they are now running to places like Tunisia, Nigeria, Mali, Somalia and Algeria (where we just lost 3 more Americans last week) to just name a few.
Whether the Benghazi aftermath was a cover-up will be decided by history. But it's now certain Hillary Clinton's State Department acted incompetently and was disastrously inept.
After reading her testimony, it appears Hillary did not have security relations with that consulate paraphrasing her husband.
