Angry Hillary Clinton Explodes at Questioning on Libya Protest: ‘We Have Four Dead Americans… What Difference at This Point Does It Make?’
RUSH: No coincidence that Hillary’s $25 mil campaign debt was just paid off this week before she testified / Exactly what I thought!
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton erupted at Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) during his questioning Wednesday over whether there were protests in Benghazi, Libya before the deadly assault on the U.S. diplomatic mission.
Johnson was insisting that the American people were “misled” about protests that supposedly occurred over an anti-Islam video, similar to those that had taken place at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo hours earlier on Sept. 11, 2012. It was later determined there had been no protests in Benghazi and the assault was labeled a terrorist attack.
“Do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to those evacuees to determine what happened would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest?” Johnson asked Clinton during the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing. “That was a piece of information that could have been easily, easily obtained, within hours if not days.”
“Senator, when you’re in these positions, the last thing you want to do is interfere with any other process going on — ” Clinton started to answer.
” — I realize that’s a good excuse,” Johnson cut in.
“Well, no, it’s the fact,” Clinton said sharply, adding that there are questions being raised “even today” about what precisely happened in Benghazi.
She continued, “Now, we have no doubt they were terrorists, they were militants, they attacked us, they killed our people. But what was going on and why they were doing what they were doing, is still — ”
“No, no, no, again, again — we were misled that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that, an assault sprang out of that and that was easily ascertained that that was not the fact and the American people could have known that within days,” Johnson said. “And they didn’t know that.”
“With all respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans,” Clinton shouted. “What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator.”

Rand Paul Grills Clinton at Benghazi Hearing: ‘Had I Been President…I Would Have Relieved You of Your Post’
"Not to know of the requests for securities really, I think, cost these people their lives."

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton faced a tough line of questioning Wednesday as lawmakers grilled her on the deadly terrorist attack that occurred in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012. No one posed tougher questions than Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who blasted the “inexcusable” failure of “leadership” Clinton displayed in the time leading up to the assault.
Paul told Clinton he was glad she had decided to take responsibility for the “worst tragedy since 9/11″ but that doesn’t excuse the State Department for ignoring cables from Benghazi asking for additional security and warning of extremist activity.
“Had I been president at the time, and I found that you did not read the cables from Benghazi, you did not read the cables from Ambassador Stevens, I would have relieved you of your post,” he said. “I think it’s inexcusable.”
He continued: “I would think that by anybody’s estimation, Libya has to have been one of the hottest of hotspots around the world. Not to know of the requests for securities really, I think, cost these people their lives. Their lives could have been saved if someone had been more available, had someone been aware of these things, more on top of the job.”
Paul went on to say that he does not suspect Clinton of “bad motives” but that doesn’t excuse her negligence in the situation, even it was wasn’t “willful.”
Watch Sen. Paul skewer Clinton during Wednesday’s Benghazi hearing: Watch
The senator followed up by asking Clinton whether she had any knowledge of the transfer of weapons to Turkey out of Libya. She denied having any knowledge of it, but took the question “for the record,” never denying it.
“To Turkey?” Clinton asked, perplexed. “I will have to take the question for the record, nobody’s ever raised that with me.”
“It’s been in news reports that ships have been leaving from Libya and that that they may have weapons,” Paul pressed. “And what I’d like to know is the annex that was closely, were they involved with procuring, buying, selling, obtaining weapons and were any of these weapons being transferred to other countries, any countries.”
“Well, senator, you will have to direct that question to the agency that ran the annex. I will see what information is available,” Clinton replied.
“You’re saying you don’t know,” Paul shot back.
“I don’t know. I don’t have any information on that,” she said.
Chaffetz: State Dept Hiding Benghazi Survivors
One must ask… Why has the worldwide media already been given access to the witnesses and survivors of the very recent attack in Algeria, yet after all this time, no one can get to the survivors and witnesses of the Benghazi attacks?!? Seems some of the Algerian attackers were among the Sept 11th Benghazi attackers…
Congressman Jason Chaffetz (R- UT) told Breitbart News on Wednesday that he has been “thwarted” by the State Department from seeing any Americans who survived the deadly attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi. Many people forget that there were Americans who survived the Benghazi attack, some of whom were badly injured and are still recovering.
“My understanding is that we still have some people in the hospital. I’d like to visit with them and wish them nothing but the best but the State Department has seen it unfit for me to know who those people are—or even how many there are,” Rep. Chaffetz said. "I don’t know who they are. I don’t know where they live. I don’t know what state they’re from. I don’t even know how many there are. It doesn’t seem right to me."
“This is so patently different than any other experience I’ve had. Unfortunately, people have been killed and maimed and in harm’s way in Afghanistan and Iraq and in points beyond. It’s typically been the case that they would release those names but in this case, they won’t. My challenge is to the media. You try and figure it out. They won’t let Congress know. They won’t seem to let the media know either.”
Breitbart News sent an inquiry to the State Department regarding those who survived the attack in Benghazi and is awaiting a response. See video
Many of Hillary Clinton’s statements, comments and insinuations before the House and Senate Foreign Relations’ Committees were wrong, false, evasive and from the information that has come forth for months now, down right lies… And much or the gushing from Congressmen and Senators at the hearings was disgusting!! Colonel: Hillary Made The Decision Not to Post Marines at Benghazi and going further back, since HIllary listed events going back to 1979, why didn’t someone ask… What did Hillary know and when did she know it and why has she flown under the radar on “Operation Gun Walker?
If you have not followed the Benghazigate saga please take some time to inform yourself below (And there is a lot more information all over the Internet):
Many are already talking about Hillary Clinton running for president in 2016, when in reality if the media had done their job, that would not even be a consideration. Other than Senator Rand Paul (TN), Senator Ron Johnson (WI), Senator Marco Rubio (FL) and Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC), very few Senators or Congressmen asked any tough questions: Where are the survivors and witnesses from Benghazi and why can’t we hear from them?; What about the reports that you (Hillary), the President and VP, Leon Panetta, etc. all watched the Benghazi incident live and told people who could have helped to stand down?; What about the leaks that the CIA was using the Benghazi Consulate for rendition and gun running?; Was there an autopsy performed on Ambassador Stevens? What was the result?; Who denied the increased security requests for Benghazi and when? …and the list of unasked questions goes on? The few times that Hillary was asked a tougher question or when she mis-spoke about Chris Stevens knowing about the dangers in the area he was going to when he took the post, she either became very defensive, began stammering or staged a tantrum (see above).
Until Americans take the responsibility to inform themselves and to speak up, demanding that their elected officials ask the right questions and then act, America will not change and will not improve. And as long as we keep re-electing people that lie to us or on the flip side sit on committees and have no spine, America’s place in the world will continue to diminish and our situation at home will continue to decline!
