House GOP concludes Hillary Clinton blew Benghazi response

By Stephen Dinan
The Washington Times

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

House Republicans have concluded that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton was responsible for cutting security at the consulate in Benghazi ahead of last year’s attack there, and that the administration lied about why it downplayed terrorism as the cause of the assault.

A new report — the result of months of investigation by five different House committees — says there was plenty of intelligence that presaged the attack, but the State Department and President Obama failed to heed the warnings or give the Defense Department the authority to respond to such an attack.

The report exonerates the Pentagon itself, saying the military did what it could to respond once the attack began, but “was hindered on account of U.S. military forces not being properly postured” beforehand.

In the most damning finding, House Republicans said Mr. Obama and his team lied about the attacks afterward, first by blaming mob violence spawned by an anti-Muslim video, and then wrongly saying it had misled the public because it was trying to protect an FBI investigation.

“This progress report reveals a fundamental lack of understanding at the highest levels of the State Department as to the dangers presented in Benghazi, Libya, as well as a concerted attempt to insulate the Department of State from blame following the terrorist attacks,” the GOP investigation concluded in its 46-page report.

The Obama administration has acknowledged providing an inaccurate explanation for the attacks early on — even though officials at the Defense Department said they knew it was a terrorist assault from the beginning.

But Mr. Obama has vehemently denied he intended to deceive the public.

Tuesday’s report comes after Republicans feared the pressure to get answers on the Benghazi attacks was dying out.

Earlier this year Senate Republicans had threatened to hold up some of Mr. Obama’s top nominees in order to extract more information about the timeline on the night of the attacks.

But over the last two months the Benghazi questions had slipped into the background amid debates over guns, immigration and the budget sequesters.

Talking to women about Hillary and they all say they won't vote for her. She is a lame duck wife of a cheater, not smart.

Hillary is a PC candidate that won't get votes from informed voters. If Condelisa Rice ran against Hillary she would CLEARLY beat Hillary.

Too bad, your "opinion" is so STOOPID !!!

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the most popular U.S. politician, surpassing fellow Democrats President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden as well as leading Republicans, a national poll found.

Sixty-one percent of American voters approve of Clinton, a possible U.S. presidential candidate for 2016, while 34 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion, according to the survey by Quinnipiac University released on Friday.

One thing the foxniks and conservatives can't square is the fact that Hillary and Stevens were personal friends, not just professional colleagues... Why, if he felt in imminent danger didn't he contact her directly? It was in his purview as ambassador to have direct, unfiltered communication with the SOS. If the situation was as untenable as the GOP portrays it, wouldn't it have made sense for Stevens to directly address Clinton....not go through diplomatic channels ???
Especially, knowing how inefficient diplomatic channels are?

Another point is the GOP fails to talk about the congressional mandate pushed by the GOP, which forced the state department, except in Iraq and Afghanistan to contact with the lowest-priced contractors for defense... There is no exception to this rule !!! Not even when as was well documented in Benghazi, a more expensive, but far more effective and trusted force was let go. The fact that a previously contacted, well-proven force was not allowed to continue to provide security in one of the most unsecured places an ambassador to Libya could visit, is on the heads of those who voted on law mandating that the lowest priced local security be used...

The last gaping hole in the GOP narrative is that Stevens went to Benghazi on his own initiative ...he was not sent there reluctantly or against his will by Clinton. The decision to visit Benghazi was Stevens' and Stevens' alone....
