The latest email dump fails to clear former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton of wrongdoing in the Benghazi matter.
She was confronted with previously released emails and other contradictory statements made soon after the September 12, 2012 Benghazi attack alternately blaming the incident on an al Qaeda-like group or a mob spontaneously responding to news of an anti-Islam video made by a private American citizen. It was obvious the night of the attack that it was the former given their use of mortars fired from more than 100 yards away.
Secretary Clinton did not deny that she had made the contradictory statements. The former First Lady essentially admitted she lied by her silence. There was no real need for the Rep. Trey Gowdy-led (R-SC) hearings given the above and especially since there is likely no criminal activity to discover in a foreign policy matter.
What was and is needed, and has been since the Bill Clinton impeachment hearings and trial, is for Republicans to muster the courage to make obvious moral judgments based upon admitted facts. Stop saying “we need answers” and “we have more questions”.
NO! We have the answers from the admitted facts.
President Barack Obama, and Hillary et al stupidly drove out a compliant-since-Saddam fell Qadaffy from power in Libya; left an “embassy” in a war zone even Britain and the Red Cross fled: denied security repeatedly requested by our ambassador; and lied about the obvious perpetrators since the truth refuted their pre-Campaign 2012 narrative that al Qaeda was decimated and Libya was an Obama Administration success.
We knew all that before the hearing. Republicans seem to think nothing is proven and no moral judgment can be reached unless the Democrats confess as if having been cross-examined by Perry Mason. Or are they just going through the motions to give their “honorable” Beltway Democrat friends a infinite number of chances to say the right thing to make it go away? Seems so at times.
Even Allen West doesn’t get it:
Even as Hillary Clinton and her minions emerged elated from last week’s Benghazi hearing, the families of four dead Americans continue to mourn — and ask the same questions that remain unanswered more than three years later.
Today, one mother’s emotions boiled over in an interview with MSNBC host — and known Clinton “friendly” — Andrea Mitchell.
Via The Blaze:
Appearing on MSNBC Monday afternoon, the mother of one of the four Americans killed during the 2012 Benghazi attacks let her emotions show when the host attempted to offer her condolences for the loss of her son.
“He was a good guy,” Patricia Smith told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell of her son, Sean Smith. “They sacrificed him as they sacrificed the ambassador and the two guys that that got murdered because nobody sent help. I want to know why…”
Why was the mother’s son murdered? Because Democrats are incompetent, vile, indifferent political animals who use troops and foreign service employees as pawns to enhance their own power. Republicans simply won’t make obvious moral and legal judgments even when the evidence is beyond a reasonable doubt.
