Hillary Lied Under Oath About Benghazi
Posted in the Grand Rapids Forum

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, testifying in January 2013, before the Senate Foreign Relations committee, said "...what difference at this point does it make?" Clinton was speaking about the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans.
Well, Hillary, it does make a difference, as we are now finding out. A report of findings of a Republican led committee accuses Clinton of "...seeking to cover up failures by the State Department that could have contributed to the attack last year that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans."
But why was the attack successful? Why was there not adequate security at the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya? As it turns out, it was Hillary Clinton who denied adequate security. Page 2 of the report has:
Senior State Department officials knew that the threat environment in Benghazi was high and that the Benghazi compound was vulnerable and unable to withstand an attack, yet the Department continued to systematically withdraw security personnel.
On page 5 of the report is this little nugget of information: "Prior to the Benghazi attacks, State Department officials in Libya made repeated requests for additional security that were denied in Washington despite ample documentation of the threat posed by violent extremist militias."
We get, on page 7 of the report, this: "...in a cable signed by Secretary Clinton in April 2012, the State Department settled on a plan to scale back security assets for the U.S. Mission in Libya, including Benghazi."
The report also makes this point:
Reductions of security levels prior to the attacks in Benghazi were approved at the highest levels of the State Department, up to and including highest levels of the State Department, up to and including Secretary Clinton. This fact contradicts her testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee on January 23, 2013.
The House of Representatives Oversight Committee, chaired by Darrell Issa (R-CA), will, in May, resume hearings on the terrorist attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya. Said Issa:
"Next month, the Oversight Committee will convene a hearing on the Benghazi terrorist attacks to examine evidence that Obama Administration officials have attempted to suppress information about errors and reckless misjudgment. The American people still don't have the full truth about what happened both before and after the murders of four brave Americans."
So, Hillary Clinton, after signing a document she swore she never saw, lied to the Senate Foreign Relations committee. As Rick Moran said, "The fact is, the White House and President Obama have successfully stonewalled the truth about Benghazi and despite ample proof that they lied, no one in the media seems very interested in calling them out for it."
Even in the face of proof, somehow the MSM seems to have missed Hillary's antics. Could their miss be on purpose? Could the fact that Hillary has a "D" after her name and the report was prepared by people who have an "R" after their names have anything to do with the MSM's miss?

the oversight committee is aptly named, since they will undoubtedly overlook anything that might besmirch the future presidential candidate's reputation, and like the border patrol officer's death, this too will be summarily dismissed as an unfortunate part of the duty.
the Obama administration,like FDR's and JFK's is beyond reproach and above the law.
3.5 more years of this chicanery.

We all know if this had taken place under a republican administration the left would be turning this into Watergate 2000 and flinging themselves like ragdolls on the floor in full tantrum.
The fact not even the deaths of Americans including CIA/Navy SEALS, and the revelations of lies and deceit to cover it up, aren't enough to warrant the slightest blip of criticism toward this inept administration is further proof of how politically retarded liberals have become.
In fact, as if blind hypocrisy isn't enough, liberals on this site actually have made light of this event, finding it funny to joke about "faux outrage", as if real outrage isn't warranted.
On other threads you've got people panty wadding themselves over cut and paste posts, but not a word about what is proving to be far worse than anything Watergate revealed.
I don't think history is going to look kindly on this event, despite every attempt by the left to sweep it under the rug. I they intend on running Swillary in 2016 this event will be front and center guaranteed.

You shouldn't be surprised about Hillary lying!
That pretty much is a way of life with us. Remember "I did not have saxshul relations with that woman"?

I here tell that Mrs. Clinton is a lesbian. I guess that really doesn't matter too much when you're a pathological liar and a liberal globalist such as she.

I agree. The left will use Hillary as a foil for the next 2 years until they're ready to unveil their next real candidate. The left almost necessarily has to run a minority at this point, as they've positioned themselves as the voice of the non-white, and the whites who apologize for being white. You think Hillary or Biden are going to compel blacks and Latinos to get out the vote yet again? LOL

Of course she lied. She's a politician and she was talking.

Hey St Pothead ... where's your "heads must roll" attitude now? Americans were murdered, Hillary lied under oath about it, and you want to whine about fertilizer regulations.
You want to get mad about fertilizer? Look in the mirror, twit, you're full of it.
