Issa: Clinton “was just wrong” in her testimony on Benghazi

posted at 3:21 pm on April 24, 2013 by Erika Johnsen

Yesterday’s interim report from the House GOP — faulting Hillary Clinton for the failures in Benghazi and the Obama administration for the misleading talking points — has predictably roused some ire from the Democrats, but as House Oversight Chairman attested this morning, all of their protestations haven’t refuted the fact that security requests did in fact get to and go through then-Secretary Clinton:

The secretary of state was just wrong. She said she did not participate in this, and yet only a few months before the attack, she outright denied security in her signature in a cable in April, 2012. … The thing that our report shows and our continued investigation shows is, they had a policy of normalization-appearance. They did everything they could to look like they’d won the war and had the peace, and so the policy that you saw in that April cable is the policy that led to the ambassador being exposed and killed. It led to the absence of a plan in what is basically a war zone. … None of it’s been disputed. Bless the Democrats’ hearts, they like their report, but they can’t find a factual error to ours, and as we go into more documents — ones that we want to have given to us, not just allowed to look at — we’re going to find more of these kinds of mistakes that need to be corrected.

Chairman Issa is already promising to convene another hearing sometime next month on the “Benghazi terrorist attacks to examine evidence that Obama Administration officials have attempted to suppress information about errors and reckless misjudgments,” and in the meantime, the joint House committees conducting the ongoing investigation would like President Obama to publicly release more of the documents relating to the attack — if it isn’t too much of inconvenience for them, of course:

The Republican leaders of five committees — the House Armed Services, Judiciary, Foreign Affairs, Intelligence and Oversight and Government Reform Committees — sent a letter to Mr. Obama, asking for the public release of an April 19 State Department cable denying more security in Libya. The cable, which bears Clinton’s signature, was cited in the interim report as evidence that Clinton approved security reductions at the consulate, contrary to what she said before Congress earlier this year.

The congressmen also asked Mr. Obama to give their committees all versions of the Benghazi talking points, as well as all documents and communications that were previously provided for “in camera” review.

“Access to this information cannot be dictated by the political interests of the Executive Branch,” the letter says.

In response to the request, White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday dismissed the issue of Clinton’s signature as “a perfect example of an attempt to politicizes something when it’s wholly unnecessary.”

Clinton “was just wrong” in her testimony on Benghazi

Uh, it’s called LYING.

Hillary lied. Four Americans died.

Aw, c’mon, Darrell, you can use the “P” word….

Maybe the “L” word, while you are at it.

Why are you being so coy?

“Wrong?”

C’mon, grow a pair…she perjured herself under oath. She lied.

Now, what are you gonna do about it?

Or is she gonna be given the Eric Holder treatment.

As in, nothing?

In her defense, maybe Killary was blackout-drunk when she personally acknowledged receipt of Amb. Stevens’ request for additional protection or when she personally signed off on reduced security levels.

steebo77 on April 24, 2013 at 3:27 PM

Just wrong, heh?

‘Tis only human to err.

Chairman Issa is already promising to convene another hearing sometime next month

At some point, you just have to say “What difference does it make”.

Don’t you have more pressing and relevant work you can be doing Mr. Issa?

Why is it so hard to use the word “lie” in DC? If you’re not sure someone is lying, fine. Don’t make the accusation. But when someone deliberately states something that isn’t true(and does it while under oath, no less), where I come from that’s called TELLING A LIE!!!

Perjury.

rbj on April 24, 2013 at 3:37 PM

Lets’ not forget little David Petraeus.

Diana West: “Spontaneous protest, unplanned attack: That was Petraeus’ testimony as CIA director three days after U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Benghazi, Libya.

Within 24 hours of the attack, however, the White House and top officials at the State Department, the Pentagon and the intelligence agencies knew that no protest, spontaneous or other, had taken place. They knew the U.S. had been hit on the 9/11 anniversary by a planned attack by al-Qaida affiliates. Ruppersberger’s account, then, indicates Petraeus deceived the committee. When committed knowingly, as former federal prosecutor Andrew C. McCarthy recently pointed out, such deception is a felony.

This same phony story — that “extreme groups” took advantage of a “spontaneous” protest over a YouTube video to mount an “unplanned” attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi — would be repeated by the Obama White House for two weeks, climaxing in the president’s U.N. address on Sept. 25. There, President Obama cited the video six times and declared to the world body, dominated by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (an Islamic bloc of 56 nations plus the Palestinian Authority): “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

Blaming the YouTube video for the violence was, in effect, blaming free speech, which is also OIC policy. Additionally, it denied the reality of the planned jihad attack, which, by extension, denied that al-Qaida-style jihad terrorism still exists at the vanguard of expansionist Islam.
To date, the media haven’t asked President Obama and his top officials, why? Why the administration-wide cover-up? Why didn’t military help get to Battleground Benghazi? Without coming clean, President Obama has been re-elected, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton mentioned as a 2016 presidential candidate, and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice floated as the next secretary of state.

And Petraeus? On Nov. 12, Fox News reported that “congressional leaders,” believing Petraeus lied to them in September, had “already considered charging Petraeus with perjury, but said they planned to withhold judgment until he testified this week.” (Under oath or not, it is a crime to lie to federal officials.) We have heard no such tough talk since.”

And BTW – Diana West: “Even though it appears the former CIA director lied to the House Intelligence Committee on Sept. 14, and may have lied again to the same committee on Nov. 16, he is starting to slip out of the inner ring of Benghazi
cover-up suspects. We are losing sight of his official role in the deception as the media lens ossifies over a tawdry love triangle. For this, he must be thankful. Maybe to ensure the good fortune continues, Petraeus has hired Bob Barnett, the $975-per-hour Washington superlawyer to officials with issues and/or big book deals, to manage what reports call Petraeus’ “transition to civilian life.”

And her actions. The report states that reduced security levels were approved at the “highest levels” of the State Department, “up to and including Secretary Clinton.”

steebo77 on April 24, 2013 at 3:41 PM

The cable, which bears Clinton’s signature, was cited in the interim report as evidence that Clinton approved security reductions at the consulate, contrary to what she said before Congress earlier this year….
……White House spokesman Jay Carney on Wednesday dismissed the issue of Clinton’s signature as “a perfect example of an attempt to politicizes something when it’s wholly unnecessary.”

So lemme get this straight :
Hussein is a professional politician,
Killery is a professional politician,
Issa is a politician,
the Congress is a group of politicians,
Carney works for a politician,
but
somehow the jihad on 4 Americans who died ( which is one more than that in Boston) and the numerous others who were injured by the actions of Hussein and Killery should not be investigated because that would be …….politics ?

HotAirLib, DDay is right. You’re admitting Hillary lied, and celebrating the fact that the Republicans can’t do more about it?

Throat Wobbler Mangrove on April 24, 2013 at 5:34 PM

Deja vu all over again….

For the trolls, let me elucidate:

That was exactly what happened with Bill Clinton, ol’ “I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” when he got caught lying about Monica Lewinsky. The left admitted that he lied, and celebrated that nothing could be done about it.

Of course, at least that time nobody died. Is Hillary Clinton just that much more incompetent than her husband?

Why is no one in DC Politics ever responsible for anything?
I like old POP culture movies and books because they reflect the moralities of the culture at that time.
John Wayne and Humphrey Bogart were fighting the “Japs” and the NAZI’s” back in the 1930′s. Wounder why WWII was such a surprise?
In these old movies one can find the answer to the question WHY. Everyone has got something on everyone else. You mess with my people and we will destroy you and your career for ever.
“Mr Smith Goes to Washington” 1939 James Stewart
“Davy Crockett Goes to Congress” 1954 Fess Parker
“Billy Jack Goes to Washington” 1977 Tom Laughlin
“The Distinguished Gentleman” 1992 Eddie Murphy
“Mr Griffin Goes to Washington” 2001 Family Guy
“Legally Blonde 2: Red, White & Blue 2001 Reese Witherspoon
What do they have in common? One person went up against the corrupt Washington system and was nearly destroyed by it. What can WE learn? This has been recognized in our culture for over 70 years and has not yet changed.
PROBLEM: Congress looks out for Congress. Party affiliations and Party obedience is all there is in political life and the Communist Party.

PROPOSAL: Establish a “Court of Public Opinion”
The public can bring up a public official on charges.
A real retired Judge like “Judge Andrew Napolitano” acts a judge, explains the charges and the rules of evidence.
A real prosecutor presents the case.
A real defense attorney or the individual accused presents the defense.
Redirect – prosecution
Redirect – defense.
Summation
Judge give instruction.
WE The People vote.

I’m still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that Sandy Burglar stole classified documents right out of the National Archives and walked away without even a day in jail.

But it was to protect Bill Clinton from being exposed for his inaction regarding Osama bin Laden, so no harm done, right?

Jellyfish sting worse than this gutless lambasting of the bastard Hillary.

I assume Hillary will be charged with perjury now, right?

The way to get at this is not to go for high-profile types but to get Petraeus to a deal that mitigates his apparent perjury.

His sex-scandal was all-too-convenient and in fact not relevant. He’s still a witness.
