Good riddance to bad rubbish, Madame Secretary.
Hillary's strange testimony
Exclusive: Pamela Geller blasts 'sorry end to pathetic stint as secretary of state'
History will remember Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s
performance before senators and House members at the congressional
Benghazi hearings as a stunning indictment of her profound failures and
those of Obama administration.
In jaw-dropping testimony, Clinton defiantly defended her
incompetence and her supreme lack of critical thinking, while making the
stunning admission that the motive and immediate cover-up of an act of
war and the resultant slaughter of an American ambassador and three
attaches representing America abroad “didn’t matter.” It was, in fact, a
matter of life and death. What could matter more?
The only thing more shocking than Hillary’s braying on her gross
negligence was the media’s effusive praise afterward, lauding her
performance as “winning the first presidential debate” of 2016.
The biggest and most overlooked aspect of Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi
testimony last week was that she used the word “jihadists” to refer to
the enemy, in defiance of the Obama administration’s longstanding
prohibition of any mention of Islam in defining the ongoing threats and
acts of war against the U.S. Hillary’s jihad declarations ran afoul of
Obama CIA pick John Brennan’s denial that our foes are jihadists, and in
contradiction to the Obama administration’s policy of arming those
jihadists in Libya.
Barack Obama has advanced jihad and the Shariah throughout his
presidency. The Obama administration’s official talking points in the
fallout of the slaughter in Benghazi were Shariah-adherent. Obama,
Hillary and Susan Rice blamed freedom of speech, yet again advancing the
Islamic supremacist goal of imposing Shariah domestically and
internationally. This has included repeated denials that our foes are
“jihadists” at all. And so Clinton’s usage was a stunning anomaly.
Perhaps it was because she is resigning, or maybe the denial of reality
was no longer possible.
Clinton was hardly consistent, though. When she was pressed on
whether Ambassador Stevens and the other victims of jihad in Benghazi
were killed because of a video about Muhammad, she shouted the
now-famous words: “What difference does it make?” This was just after
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., pointed out that if Hillary had made a “simple
phone call” to the Benghazi consulate, she would have known that there
was no protest. In response, Clinton first claimed that state officials
had decided not to speak to anyone in Benghazi before the FBI did, and
when pressed further, she started shouting. They were the actions of a
guilty toddler caught in the act.
Hillary copped out on the big lie, blaming a YouTube video (that is,
blaming freedom of expression) for the attacks. There was no basis in
fact for that. None. When pressed, Hillary passed the buck to
“intelligence.” That may be so, but if you were secretary of state and
America was under attack, wouldn’t you want to see the evidence of such a
claim? And if I had the information at Atlas Shrugs within 24 hours,
wouldn’t a secretary of state have better access to intel?
And what difference does it make? All the difference in the world.
Our people were killed and continue to be slaughtered because of jihad.
This willful blindness puts us all at risk. How can we win a war if we
are afraid to speak to the motive? Four months after the attack, the
secretary of state said she still did not know why our embassy was
attacked. Incompetent liar or spineless coward? Is it any wonder we are
losing the war?
What difference does it make? Life and death. More murders of Americans. The New York Times reports that some
Algeria jihadists took part in the Benghazi jihad. And why didn’t she
grant requests to improve security at the Benghazi consulate? She says she didn’t see them.
That’s as hard to believe as the Obama administration claim that
Islamic jihadists aren’t Islamic jihadists. Clinton didn’t read the
cable from Stevens begging for security? After the attacks on the
British embassy? She should have been fired for that alone.
Then, when asked why she didn’t go on the Sunday morning interview
shows after Benghazi, Clinton said that she “didn’t like” going on them
and “had better things to do.” Uh, that’s your job, Madame Secretary.
Hillary had better things to do than answer to the American people?
(Susan Rice went on instead, and made all those unbelievable statements
about how this was all a protest over a video.)
Clinton also continued to display her relentless partisanship
throughout the questioning that followed her testimony, as she played
with her pencil, paper and pantsuit when Republicans questioned her, but
listened intently when Democrats heaped praise and accolades on her
myriad failures. Brad Sherman, D-Calif., lauded Hillary’s work for
women’s rights across the world. Yes, helping install the Shariah in
Egypt, Libya and Tunisia (and more countries to come) has done wonders
If I were in the Foreign Service, I would be very worried about my
security after her testimony. As an American, I am worried about our
national security. The Republicans never took off the kid gloves, save
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C.
Hillary’s testimony was a sorry end to her pathetic stint as
secretary of state. She railed against jihadists, but just last month,
she accused Israel of lacking “empathy” with and “generosity” toward the
“Palestinian” jihadists. She was demanding that Jews empathize with
their annihilationists. She wanted Jews to “be generous” with those
obsessed with their quest to eliminate and exterminate the tiny Jewish
state. She railed against jihadists, but she has partnered with them in
Egypt and Libya and Gaza and Syria.
