Hillary: What difference does it make if there were no protests in Benghazi?

posted at 12:01 pm on January 23, 2013 by Ed Morrissey

Allahpundit included this in his earlier post as an update, but I have a few thoughts on why this line of questioning matters. Senator Ron Johnson pressed the outgoing Secretary of State for an answer as to how her department and the White House came to declare that the attack erupted spontaneously from a protest outside the consulate when State could see in real time that there wasn’t any such protest under way. A clearly exasperated Clinton shot back, “What difference does it make?”

Well, gosh, I can think of a few reasons why it matters. First, it mattered enough for the Obama administration to send Susan Rice to five different Sunday talk shows to insist that the sacking was a spontaneous demonstration of anger over a months-old YouTube video, while saying that there was “no evidence” that it was a terrorist attack. On one of those appearances, the president of Libya told US audiences the exact opposite — that it was the work of terrorists and that they had a pretty good idea of who they were. If it didn’t matter, what was Susan Rice doing when she tried pushing that meme, which the White House had to abandon within days as leaks within State and CIA made plain that there was no demonstration?

It also matters because Barack Obama at the time had been bragging about crippling al-Qaeda while on the campaign trail. That false narrative made it seem as though State and our intel community couldn’t have possibly known that the sacking would have occurred, and got blindsided by a grassroots reaction to the video. Instead, it turned out to be a planned terrorist action about which the US embassy in Libya had warned State for months, repeatedly requesting more security.

There’s also the matter of Barack Obama’s intervention in Libya and his undeclared war against Moammar Qaddafi. His actions, and that of NATO in following his initial lead, decapitated the ruthless regime that at least was keeping a lid on terrorist networks in eastern Libya. The rise of those networks in the Benghazi region should have been a predictable outcome from the power vacuum the US/NATO campaign left in the region, which resulted in the ability to conduct this attack. That also reflects on the decision to remove the military security at the consulate even with the deteriorating environment very clear to anyone paying attention. That also matters because of how the transfer of weapons to the militias in that US/NATO effort and the resultant power vacuum has destabilized Mali and potentially a wide swath of North Africa.

So it matters because of credibility. There doesn’t seem to be any at the White House or State on any of these issues, nor answers to questions of what exactly this administration did to prepare for the inevitable outcome of its own policies in Libya and the broader Arab Spring. It matters because those policies are going to get more people killed than just the four Americans in Benghazi last September, and already have.

Thank you. I don’t even work in intelligence or the government, but I KNEW about the planned protest at the embassy in Cairo and the real reason it was staged long before our pathetic ruling elite did.

I’m reminded of something someone said many years ago, “The CIA learned about the falling of the Berlin Wall from watching it on CNN.”

Resist We Much on January 23, 2013 at 1:00 PM

Never forget this, Hillary Clinton’s aide is Huma Abedin. Huma’s mother and older brother are high level Muslim Brotherhood officials. Al Qaeda is the violent Militant enforcement wing of the Muslim Brotherhood.

In a world where security were taken seriously, Hillary Clinton and Huma Adedin would have been arrested and tried for TREASON.

SWalker on January 23, 2013 at 1:07 PM

It might have made a difference in the eulugy she gave, since part of it included how the protests and Youtube video were to blame for the deaths.

DrAllecon on January 23, 2013 at 1:07 PM

“What billing records?”, or “I had to duck to dodge the bullets.”, or “Vince Foster’s briefcase just showed up here.”

She’s had plenty of practice bending reality and truth.

She better hope Moo-chelle doesn’t decide to make a run in 2016, she will be shutout!

belad on January 23, 2013 at 1:09 PM

Why can’t I find a full video of this exchange?

The reports say that her statement was:

“Honestly, I will do my best to answer your questions about this, but the fact is people were trying their best in real time to get to the best information. Give me a break, Senator Johnson. This whole thing is the biggest fairy tale I’ve ever seen.”

Where is a video with the part I bolded?

And exactly what “fairy tale” is she talking about? The fairy tale that the Obama administration fed the American people at the time those poor Americans were killed?

Elisa on January 23, 2013 at 1:12 PM

Hillary: What difference does it make if there were no protests in Benghazi?

Lying about it mattered enough to Shrillary and the Indonesian to use the coffins of the dead as shields for them while they spewed the lies. Did anyone bring up Shrillary and Barky’s use of dead Americans to further their stupid and transparent lies in order to cover this criminal administration? That was even worse than their use of children as human shields for their un-Constitutional gun-grabbing attempts, now.

Not that it’s news or anything but Barky, Shrillary and the rest of the lunatic junta are the lowest form of human to ever have walked the face of this Earth. They are ultimate scum … and criminals, to boot. They all need to be donning orange jumpsuits, the miserable POS.

Yeah, Hillary, what difference does it make if the first 9-11 terrorists were just out for a plane ride? I mean, it’s all the same thing.

There are certain social conventions in giving eulogies. You don’t use it to settle scores, you don’t bad mouth the deceased, you don’t use it to talk about yourself. But what Hillary did, which you CERTAINLY don’t do, was use it to provide herself cover for her security failures, lying or not. Besides bald-faced lying, it was just very bad manners.

Paul-Cincy on January 23, 2013 at 1:23 PM

This whole bunch makes me puke. I think it makes a real difference to the families of the 4 people killed. It makes a difference to me and the American People as to how the administration lied as to why the attack took place, as to their allowing them to be killed with a stand down order, as to how the primary concern was to not affect the election and to show how ineffectual and incompetent this bunch is to run even a kindergarten. My heart is crying as to what my country use to be and what it has become.

What doesn’t make a difference is the amount the House appropriated for Embassy Security. State had $2.3 billion in reserves. The American Embassy in Barbados had more security than the Consulate in Benghazi. 4 days after State denied Stevens’ request for additional security, it approved new Volts and a charging station for the American Embassy in Vienna.

A major force in the Dem’s win in 2008 and 2012 was their ability to destroy all of the decent Republican voices early on – completely removing them from the fight and leaving us with the least optimal candidates.

For all intents and purposes, it looks like Hillary is their “go to” candidate for 2016. So, an effective Republican strategy is to take issues like Benghazi and Algeria and completely discredit her before she has a chance to start fund raising to re-building her next campaign, as well as getting free run of Obama’s campaign machine.

Drag her through the streets and disqualify her early and often. It might be dirty, but it’s the best way to have a defendable race in 2016.

2nd Ammendment Mother on January 23, 2013 at 1:56 PM

I have a suggestion, Madame Secretary. Why don’t you answer the questions and leave it to others to decide if the answers matter or not. If both were left to you, there would be no need for a hearing in the first place, but it doesn’t work that way.

What difference does it make? Apparently enough difference so that it was the story of the administration for over 2 weeks. Enough so the President could like, in front of the U.N. still talking about this obscure movie. Enough so you’d send out the U.N. ambassador to lie to the American people on 5 Sunday shows. I’m sure glad I wasn’t there because I probably would have gone ballistic about then with a “You’ve got to be kidding me.” or some other line about straining the bounds of credibility.

None at all if you don’t give a crap about the truth, like most Americans do. None at all if four brave souls hadn’t been killed. None at all if people didn’t expect the head of the State Department to know when people needed help and to make sure they got it. None at all if you have no shame.

What difference does it make. In a totalitarian society Ma’am, not a bit of difference, but need I remind you that you and the president serve not as totalirian dictators, but as servants to the people.
Secondly, the entity known as congress to which you are being disrespectful serves at the will of the people, and I take personal offense at you and the president’s total disrespect for congress, ande the contitutional authority by which it exists, and by so doing, you merely serve to raise questions of your competence to serve in the high office to which you are entrusted.
I would insist, that you immediately stop this degradation of yourself and the people’s office that you are charged to properly use?

Disgusting, but hardly surprising.

Too bad for their “narrative” Newtown didn’t happen earlier – they could’ve shoved “gun safety” down everyone’s throats a lot earlier than depending on a contrived F&F debacle. After all, who cares about a few dead Mexicans, right O’Butthead?

With all due respect the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because there was a protest or was it because there were guys who went out for a walk one night who decided they would kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to make sure it never happens again.

She answers her own stupid question in the very next sentence. It makes a difference because it is her job to find out what happened. It is her job to discover the truth and to use the knowledge of that truth to prevent future recurrences of what happened in Benghazi and to save American lives.

I watched some of the hearing. Hilary was on talking points. She said that she took the blame. In away it was all lip service. It was mentioned that she never received the message from the ambassador for assistance. Someone in the state department knew. She claimed of cutbacks is why the ambassador’s protection detail was curtailed. It does not make sense to take a way as protection detail where there was obvious problems. This administration did not want to think that their bold move in Libya was unraveling. They had to cover up.

The money is allocated to the state department. It is choice on how to spend it. If they decided to curtail ambassador protection detail, it was a foolish decision and wrong. In that same time it was decided to buy electic cars and a charging station for an embassy where there were no problems. I call this not using their head. One embassy did not need those cars. The other embassy needed protection. As she put it does not matter what happened.Bascially saying that what could she do about it. If my people that were under me did not keep me informed and I lost an ambassador. Those people should have been fired.

I guess I missed where she actually answered the question. Of course, with her long record of lying, it probably doesn’t matter how she answered any question unless it could be independently verified. She hasn’t exactly earned a reputation for being a reliable witness.

So how exactly does this end the controversy? Oh, I know you think it’s over. But you thought it was over from the beginning, so your opinion is not exactly relevant.

Actually, if a Clinton or Obama lies about anything of substance and the DNC controlled mainstream media does not report it, have they really lied. I think we should forget about the clintons and obama, and go after the directors, producers, writers, talking heads, and journolists that have been lying to the American people for years, thereby jeapordizing the continuation of The United States as a free country. We need to publish their names, addresses and phone numbers, just like they do us. When Chris Mathews goes into a bar and gets abusively drunk, I think some veteran should set him on the right path to atonement.

With the hard time these republicans are giving Hilary it’s a good thing she’s not black. Can you imagine the cries of “racism” from the liberal pundits if she were?

Liberals always claim they would like a colorblind society but they don’t – it would remove their chief rhetorical weapon against society.

It must be comforting for our foreign diplomatic corp to know that if somebody in DC screws-up that no heads will roll … except their own.

Obviously, being a federal government employee does have perks usually not mentioned in pleasant company.
