Hillary Clinton Lies About Benghazi Email Release (VIDEO)

Hillary Clinton dismissed the information in the newly released emails which show that the State Department and the NSC were aware that Ansar Al-Sharia was behind the Benghazi consulate attack.

Clinton sneeringly dismisses it as “Posting something on Facebook is not in and of itself evidence.” That might be true for the average person, but when an Islamist terrorist militia linked to Al Qaeda that plays a major role in Benghazi posts something on Facebook while an attack is taking place and appears to know more about it than the State Department does, that is evidence.

But Hillary Clinton’s point might still be legitimate if Obama and Rice had asked everyone to refrain from jumping to any conclusions until the full investigation was complete. They did not do that. Instead they decided to go on claiming that the attack was due to a YouTube video.

So a YouTube video is evidence, but a Facebook and Twitter statement of responsibility isn’t. Why?

Obama and Rice decided to reject an assertion of responsibility from Ansar Al-Sharia, evidence from eyewitnesses that Ansar Al-Sharia had stolen armored vehicles from the consulate and their own background on Ansar Al-Sharia contained in cables and bulletins from their own diplomats in Libya.

Instead they chose to go with an assertion by some Salafist groups that they were carrying out their attacks because America had insulted their prophet.

Obama and Rice didn’t wait until the evidence was in. They picked and chose from among the statements made by Islamist groups and created a selective narrative that suited their agenda.

The question isn’t why didn’t Obama and Co. immediately call this a terrorist attack by Al Qaeda. The question is why they insisted on falsely claiming that this was a protest over a movie, when there were no protesters and their own intel said that it was an organized assault by an Al Qaeda group?

Hillary Clinton can claim that we need to wait for the investigation to be completed, but this entire debate is happening because Obama and Rice didn’t wait for the investigation. Instead they blamed the Constitution and clapped a filmmaker into irons to appease the Islamist terrorists. Now that the evidence is coming out Hillary Clinton would like us to wait, but where were her calls to wait when Ambassador Rice was trolling the morning show circuit blaming Freedom of Speech for the Benghazi attack, while denying that inadequate security and reliance on Islamists had anything to do with the attack?

    The third email, describing how Ansar Al-Sharia was boasting about the attack on Facebook and Twitter, says that the group was threatening to attack the embassy in Tripoli as well. Any evidence that they took this threat seriously — which, I'm sure they did — would support the obvious point that they most certainly believed the Facebook and Twitter posts to be genuine.

    Obama the Coward stood by while Americans were getting slaughtered. A strike force was an hour away. Our Commander in Chief can't load and fire a weapon, but he sure knows how to load and fire up a bong.

    Now we have the chipmunk faced Hillary Clinton smiling and almost laughing during this video. Disgusting skank.

    Thank God for a free press…we will get to the bottom of this.

    There is a Pulitzer Prize waiting to be awarded for this one.

      September 17, 2012: Military group Ansar al-Sharia was suspected of having a role in the assault. In an interview with the BBC, Ansar al-Sharia commander Mohammed Ali al-Zawawi denied responsibility, however.

    I will continue to write President Obama about this everyday until he responds. I have posted several open letters to him. He needs to apologize.

    Yeah, right! She has to await the results of an investigation before addressing what she knew and did? That's just highly self-serving and dismissive of the interests of the American people, apparently in favor of holding us in the dark at least through the Nov. 6. elections!

    You'll answer to these circumstances and what you did or didn't do, Hillary!

    Oh, and Facebook postings may be evidence if there's someone standing behind it, ready to testify in court to its legitimacy. And sorry, Ms. Rodham, we didn't pay you for your legal advice, cuz it was worthless.

    I am waiting to see how the media will spins this. One article I read today seemed as if the writer was blaming the Ambassador for going to Libya since he knew that it was dangerous. Shameful.

    Why is the likely TREASON of both the President of the U.S. and the Secretary of State not enough to warrant a comment on most of the "conservative" blogs? It's like there's some kind of blackout today.__When will someone ask about the timing of the Embassy in Egypt's condemnation of "the video" vis-a-vis the timing of the White House's knowledge of the Benghazi attack?__When on God's green earth will someone seriously ask what the White House was covering up? __From the refusal to provide security in Benghazi for weeks or months leading to the attacks

    Wow, it is hard to find a more biased and uninformed article than this. It is actually very common for terrorist groups to falsely claim responsibility for attacks (it helps with publicity and recruitment). The e-mail in question is raw intelligence, and it would be irresponsible for the State Department or White House to use a facebook post as their evidence without verifying the claim. This article then goes on to complain that they used a YouTube video as evidence – but that is not true at all – yes, they blamed a YouTube video, but the evidence for that being the cause was from witness accounts that all stated that there were protests and that the gunman specifically mentioned the YouTube video while carrying out their attack. You clearly do not understand foreign policy or terrorist groups at all. I find it pretty disgusting that when our country is attacked, instead of trying to figure out and understand the truth, you just cling to flimsy conspiracy theories to try and attack the President.

      Who is this apologist for Hilary typing on the internet. This is a crime and a shame. I hope all of these people – especially BO and HC get the same treatment that our ambassador to Libya was given.
