The Fog of Hillary Clinton
Wow. Will this woman ever stop lying?!
STEPHANOPOULOS: The majority of Americans question your honesty. Some GOP rivals. And family members of the Benghazi victims are saying you lied to them in that … uh … hearing. They point to emails that you … uh … sent the night of the attack — one to your daughter … uh … Chelsea Clinton — saying … uh … I’m going to have to put my glasses on here–
CLINTON: Cackle cackle cackle
STEPHANOPOULOS: –to actually read this. Um … “Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al Qaeda-like group.” And another one to the Egyptian Prime Minister, “We know that the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest.” But the thing the family members as you know say that you told them it was by a filmmaker. You go after the filmmaker. Here’s what they said.
CUT TO TAPE of Sean Smith’s Mother: She lied. She absolutely lied. Her daughter was able to be told differently — that it was not the video, it was something else. Now if her daughter could be told, why can’t I?
CUT TO TAPE of Ty Woods’ father: Either she was lying to the Prime Minister or she was lying to me. And to the American public.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Did you tell them it was about the film? And what’s your response?
CLINTON: No. You know, look I understand the continuing grief at the loss that … uh … parents … uh … experienced … uh … with the loss of these four brave Americans. And I did testify, as you know, for 11 hours. And I answered all of these questions. Now, I can’t — I can’t help it the people think there has to be something else there. I said very clearly there had been a terrorist group … uh … that had taken responsibility on Facebook … um … between the time that … uh … I … you know, when I talked to my daughter, that was the latest information; we were … uh … giving it credibility. And then we learned the next day it wasn’t true. In fact, they retracted it. This was a fast-moving series of events in the fog of war and I think most Americans understand that.
Okay, enough. I was going to transcribe the entire thing, but after this bullshit, I simply cannot endure the arduous, torturous process necessary to transcribe this wretched bitch’s lies.
This is more than enough for our purposes.
Hillary loves to talk about “the fog of war.” As if she’s somehow down in the trenches, loaded up in combat gear, helmet perched atop her wig, firing tracer rounds at the enemy.
Hillary was comfortably ensconced in Washington, DC on September 11 and September 12, 2012.
Well, I’ve read 13 Hours — you know, the first-hand account of what happened in Benghazi. First hand. You know, from the guys who were actually in the midst of this “fog of war.”
So, here’s what I know, Hillary.
In the weeks prior to the Benghazi terror attack, the operators charged with the security of the Annex and any visiting American diplomats were fully aware of the threat posed to Americans by radical, anti-American militias within the city. They had experienced run-ins with less-than-friendly militia members prior to September 11. They knew the risks. In fact, when the State Department staff and security were preparing for the arrival of Ambassador Chris Stevens, the security operators from the Annex had offered to provide additional security for the Diplomatic compound to ensure the safety of the Ambassador. They were told, thanks, but no thanks.
Nobody heard about any video. Nobody saw any “protests” over a video. The attack on the diplomatic compound and the Annex were both coordinated attacks. The attackers actually had a staging area in a parking lot not far from the Annex from which they staged the attacks.
At no time did anyone know about “protests” over a video. The only people who had discussed protests and the video were State Department personnel who were discussing the protests in Cairo. But never at any time did any protests occur in Benghazi. Never.
How do I know?
Because the people who were there said so.
These men were the ones who were ready and willing to leave the Annex and head over to the diplomatic compound the minute the State Department security people raised the alarm that they were under attack. One of the operators told the Annex chief to contact DOD and get a drone above and also get a gunship overhead to provide air support. They jocked up, loaded up and piled into armored vehicles to drive the half mile to the compound, but were told not to go. Why? Because the State Department and other officials wanted the local 17 February Militia to defend the compound.
The United States Government wanted to job out the security of American citizens to locals instead of using the heavily armed, trained and prepared American men a half mile away.
After being told to stand down and not move out until they were told, one of the lead guys said, fuck this, and they left for the consulate.
The unarmed drone finally arrived.
But the air support never came.
A handful of brave Americans, in the fog of war managed to save the lives of all but two of the compound staff. And then, just a couple of hours before all the Americans were evacuated, two of those who defended their lives were killed in the final mortar attack on the Annex shortly before sunrise.
Because who doesn’t bring mortars, not to mention rocket propelled grenades, AK-47s and gel bombs to a spontaneous protest over a video?
Hillary Clinton blaming her ever-shifting tale on “the fog of war” is so deeply dishonest and cynical, it defies understanding.
Well, here’s Hillary Clinton in the days after the Benghazi attack when, one would suspect, the fog of war had lifted — even for Hillary.
CLINTON: I also want to take a moment to address … ah … the video circulating on the Internet that has led to these protests … uh … in a number of countries. Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States Government had absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. And … as you know, we are home to people of all religions. Many of whom came to this country seeking … uh … the right to exercise their own religion — including, of course, millions of Muslims. And we have the greatest respect for people of faith. To us … to me personally, this video is disgusting and reprehensible. It appears to have a deeply cynical purpose: to denigrate a great religion, and to provoke rage. [Hillary Clinton, September 13, 2012]
CLINTON: This has been a difficult week for the State Department and for our country. We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful internet video that we had nothing to do with. [Hillary Clinton, September 14, 2012]
Sorry, Hillary. This has nothing to do with the fog of war. If anything, this is nothing but the fog of Hillary Clinton.
And it isn’t so much “fog” as it is a smokescreen you have thrown down to shield yourself from any accountability for your own incompetence and failure as Secretary of State. You hope to stay hidden behind this “fog” just long enough to penetrate the perimeter of the Oval Office.
It’s nothing short of reprehensible how this woman will do anything, say anything, tell any lie just so she can slither her way into the White House.
What a shameless and, to use her own words, “disgusting and reprehensible,” not to mention “deeply cynical” woman she is.
Honestly, if Hillary Clinton isn’t put in prison where she belongs, at the very least she should be driven out of public service much like the snakes were driven out of Ireland.

What’s so disturbing is the fact that she still has a following that think she would make a good President. They’re the ones in a fog so heavy they can’t see past the end of their noses. The mayor of this town I live in endorsed her. Stupidity has no limits!
The fog is definately thick between thier ears.
She is a horror story gone terribly wrong indeed. Perhaps we could get the Secret Service to do a two-fer and disappear both her and Barry on that deserted island. Take Barry and Hitlery, along with a yearling sow pig, and a yappy little dog. Come to think about it, that’s the start to a great joke. “Did you hear the one about a homosexual, a lesbian, a sexy pig, and a yappy little dog, on a deserted island?” Heck we could throw in Mooch, Bill, Uncle BS (Bernie), Nancy Pelosi, Harry Ried, Mitch McConnel, Shiela Jackson Lee, Barbara Boxer, John McCain, Whoopi and Rosie. We are going to need a bigger plane boss. Just think’n
So, the “Secretary of State” consulted Facebook and her daughter to determine the actual status of what was happening, vs. what the military had to say. No wonder she’s the logical pick for the liberals. Can there possibly be anything more stupid?
