HILLS BLOWING SOME SMOKE
Hillary Clinton can lie as much as she wants, but it will never change the truth. The Associated Press decided to fact check her and found some whoppers. Check it out…
CLINTON: “There was a good back and forth about security.” — On communications between U.S. personnel in Libya and the State Department in Washington, about security needs at the Benghazi compound before the attack that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
THE FACTS: The independent review Clinton convened after the attacks deeply faulted State Department officials in Washington for poor communication and cooperation as diplomats in Libya pressed for more security and Benghazi grew more dangerous.
The Accountability Review Board cited a “lack of transparency, responsiveness, and leadership at senior bureau levels” and “shortfalls in Washington coordination” contributing to a “woefully insufficient” security force at the compound.
The fewer than half-dozen armed diplomatic security personnel at the compound “were not well served by their leadership in Washington,” the board said.
Clinton furthermore asserted that personnel in Benghazi were granted many of their requests for security equipment upgrades.
CLINTON: Asked about the dozens of emails she received from longtime political confidant Sidney Blumenthal, many with reports about developments in Libya, Clinton said his advice was “unsolicited.”
THE FACTS: Clinton was mischaracterizing some of those exchanges with Blumenthal.
Gowdy asked what she meant by saying his advice was unsolicited.
“I did not ask him to send me the information that he sent me,” Clinton said.
Noting that Blumenthal had no expertise about Libya, Gowdy read Clinton’s emailed responses to some of his reports: “Thanks and please keep them coming,” ”Anything else to convey?” and “What are you hearing now?”
At that, Clinton revised her description of how their email exchanges unfolded to “originally unsolicited,” saying, “They started out unsolicited, and as I said, some were of interest.”
Hillary has the blood of the four dead Americans on her hands, and this mom isn’t about to let her get away with it.
“I’ve got to know what happened… The government has never told me. They have never contacted me, and I’ve got to know. That was my only child.”
Patricia Smith, whose son was killed in the Benghazi attacks, pleaded tonight to Megyn Kelly to help get answers to what really happened to her son.
