Hat tip Daily Caller
The mainstream media and liberal pundits are crowing about how the Republicans couldn't lay a glove on Hillary Clinton and how masterful she was during her testimony today. Well, maybe she didn't break down in tears, and maybe there was no Perry Mason moment when she broke down and confessed. Maybe she kept her composure. But there was a smoking gun.
When the bodies of the four murdered Americans were returned to Andrews Air Force Base on September 14 and met by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton, the latter told surviving family members that they were going to arrest and prosecute the man who made that video.
The same date, Sept 14, then White House press spokesman Jay Carney said, "We have no information to suggest it was a pre-planned attack."
Four days after the attack, Susan Rice went on those talk shows and insisted it was not a planned attack, rather a protest over the infamous video.
Yet, newly-discovered Clinton communications have provided the smoking gun behind the lies. That evening (September 12,) Hillary e-mailed her daughter that the Benghazi mission was under attack by al Qaeda-affiliated terrorists. The same evening, she told the president of Libya by phone that the terror group Ansar al Sharia was claiming credit. The next day, she told the prime minister of Egypt by phone that they "knew" that the attack was pre-planned and not a protest over a video.
That, Ladies and Gentlemen is a smoking gun. Hillary Clinton lied to the American people. Susan Rice lied to the American people. Jay Carney lied to the American people.
Hillary Clinton lied to the American people-including personally and directly the families of the victims.
At the finale of the Watergate investigation, a tape recording that Richard Nixon had fought to keep secret revealed that he was sitting in the Oval Office telling his aides to have the CIA go to the FBI and call them off the investigation on the grounds that it was a national security matter. That was the smoking gun that proved that Nixon was involved at the very least in the cover up. That led directly to his resignation.
There is still more to this story. Why lie? The obvious motive was that a terrorist attack at Benghazi went against the Obama/Clinton narrative that the American involvement in the overthrow of Moammar Qaddafi was a success story and that Libya was stabilized. Not to mention that a presidential election was looming. Not to mention the 600 requests for more security that had come from the Libyan mission-which were refused. Hillary knew those were going to come to light. Why do you think there was so much stonewalling from Clinton and the State Department to turn over the documents? Why did it take so long for it to be revealed that Clinton used a private email server to conduct diplomacy for four years leaving no paper trail in the DOS archives-as required by policy and law?
Hillary Clinton stands exposed as a liar. Does anybody care?
