According to Hillary Clinton’s testimony yesterday, Christopher Stevens, the late U.S. Ambassador to Libya, had a great sense of humor. When Mrs. Clinton was questioned by Rep. Susan Brooks, (R-IN), about security conditions in Benghazi, Mrs. Clinton said “Well, Congresswoman, one of the great attributes that Chris Stevens had was a really good sense of humor. And I just see him smiling as he’s typing this, because it is clearly in response to the email down below talking about picking up a few ‘fire sale’ items from the Brits.” Rep. Brooks responded indignantly, saying “Those ‘fire sale’ items by the way, are barricades. They are additional requests for security for the compound.” Doing her best to look unflappable, Mrs. Clinton replied, saying “Well, I thought it showed their entrepreneurial spirit, Congresswoman. And I applaud them for doing so.”
Making light of Benghazi’s deteriorating security conditions after an ambassador and 3 other American patriots were murdered is ghoulishly morbid. It’s the type of thing that only pathological liars are capable of doing.
This morning on Morning Joe, Chuck Todd said that “Hillary was untouched” yesterday. Last night on Special Report, A.B. Stoddard said that Hillary “looked presidential” while fielding the Committee’s difficult questions. Stoddard and Todd are making my case. Mrs. Clinton looked unflappable because she doesn’t think that she failed Christopher Stevens, Sean Smith, Glenn Doherty and Ty Woods, the 4 American patriots that were murdered during the terrorist attack of 9/11/2012.
When Mrs. Clinton was told that Christopher Stevens made over 600 requests for additional security, it was after she’d admitted that she’d personally responded to over 180 emails from Sid Blumenthal. Mrs. Clinton then said that “Chris Stevens certainly knew how to get in touch with me directly.” That’s an especially damning statement considering the fact that Mrs. Clinton later testified that she never saw Christopher Stevens’ 600+ requests for additional security. In that testimony, Mrs. Clinton said that she neither rejected or approved Christopher Stevens’ security requests.
If “Chris” knew how to get directly in touch with Mrs. Clinton and if “Chris” was Mrs. Clinton’s dear friend and if Mrs. Clinton knew that the Benghazi compound’s security had been breached, why didn’t Mrs. Clinton reach out directly to Christopher Stevens?
The answer is contained in Mrs. Clinton’s testimony. That’s when Mrs. Clinton said that she couldn’t recall meeting with or talking to Christopher Stevens after his swearing in as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya.
The unspoken gist of Mrs. Clinton’s testimony is that “Chris” was a dear friend of hers that Mrs. Clinton never talked to literally for months and that she didn’t lift a finger to protect. To real human beings, that isn’t the definition of a friend.
