Mother of Benghazi victim: Hillary and Susan Rice told me “nose to nose” that the Mohammed video was to blame

posted at 12:01 pm on May 9, 2013 by Allahpundit

This makes two parents of men killed in Benghazi who’ve claimed that Hillary told them personally that the video was the prime mover in the attack. Tyrone Woods’s father went a step further and alleged that she vowed to have the filmmaker “arrested and prosecuted” — which, courtesy of California authorities, is what ended up happening. (See Rich Lowry’s new piece, “The Benghazi Patsy,” for background.) Why did she think it was some sort of comfort to the bereaved that the attack might have been motivated by the Mohammed movie? She went so far as to mention it in her remarks a few days afterward at the ceremony at Andrews AFB when the victims’ bodies arrived; skip to 16:30 here and watch. With Stevens’s remains right in front of her, she interrupted her praise for his service to note that “rage and violence” had been directed at American embassies “over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Even if that were true, who cares? Why would Mr. Woods or Mrs. Smith give a wet shinola about what motivated a group of degenerates to kill their kids? State’s duty to protect its diplomats doesn’t dissolve depending upon whether an attack was foreseeable — which of course it was in the case of Benghazi, given the consulate’s repeated warnings about a growing jihadi presence in the city. Her whole “3 a.m.” shtick in the 2008 campaign was that she was ready for responsibilities that Obama wasn’t prepared for, yet when a crisis finally landed in her lap here, she couldn’t move fast enough to pass the buck to some random American whose big sin was free speech that was “unhelpful” to the administration’s goals.

Serious question for Hillary: If, in an alternate universe, the Benghazi attackers really were motivated by outrage over the Mohammed video and not their preexisting jihadist allegiances, would the filmmaker be the “main culprit,” morally or even legally? Should Terry Jones be prosecuted for burning a Koran after jihad-bots inevitably seize it on as a pretext to rampage in Afghanistan or Pakistan? This is no academic question. Matt Welch put together three pages’ worth of quotations this morning from prominent liberals in the aftermath of Benghazi flirting with (or even outright embracing) the idea of censoring material that offends Muslims. Hillary’s own State Department spent tens of thousands of your tax dollars a week later in Pakistan to run TV ads denouncing the video, just in case any of our “allies” there were thinking about making a move on the embassy in Islamabad. Yesterday’s testimony from Greg Hicks was useful in establishing that the Mohammed video was a “non-event” in Libya, but it tells us nothing about what policies Hillary would have endorsed if the “film-driven outrage” theory of the attack had had some merit to it. I want to know. Don’t you?

I believe we were all asking that last fall when at least there was a possibility that the video was a factor in what happened in Benghazi. So f’ing what? Does the First Amendment get thrown out the window just because a bunch of Islamic radicals take offense and lash out? As someone who thought I lived in a free country, that image of the filmmaker being escorted out of his home in the dead of night remains one of the most chilling things I’ve ever seen.

THAT (Hillary) is one cold-hearted, manipulative, lying, self-serving B!T@H!

While Rice is just as guilty of lying and covering this up, Hillary has made a LIFE of doing this kind of stuff! While I know it will never happen, Hillary needs to be charged with Felony CRIMES of PERJURY, dragged through the mud in a court hearing, found guilty, & sentenced to JAIL TIME, a la Scooter Libby!

This would have been over with as soon as it started. The problem is not what happened is how they handled it after the fact. THERE IS NO WAY CLINTON WILL BECOME PRESIDENT, every debate should start with what and when did you know and why did you lie.

Side question should be, do you support killing babies? A better way to frame the abortion question.

Did Hillary and Rice ask him/her any questions to satisfy themselves this was true” If so, what were their questions? If not, why not?

Did anyone else tell Hillary and Rice anything different? If so, who are they and what did they tell Hillary and Rice?

I have been assured by this admin that all questions have been answered and it is all “old news” now, so where can I find the answers to these questions?

With Stevens’s remains right in front of her, she interrupted her praise for his service to note that “rage and violence” had been directed at American embassies “over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.” Even if that were true, who cares? Why would Mr. Woods or Mrs. Smith give a wet shinola about what motivated a group of degenerates to kill their kids? State’s duty to protect its diplomats doesn’t dissolve depending upon whether an attack was foreseeable — which of course it was in the case of Benghazi, given the consulate’s repeated warnings about a growing jihadi presence in the city. Her whole “3 a.m.” shtick in the 2008 campaign was that she was ready for responsibilities that Obama wasn’t prepared for, yet when a crisis finally landed in her lap here, she couldn’t move fast enough to pass the buck to some random American whose big sin was free speech that was “unhelpful” to the administration’s goals.

When the bodies were brought into that hangar, again, Obama and company were making it all about them, as usual. Political points shall always be scored because you never let a crisis go to waste.
Two thumbs up on this piece, AP.

BobMbx on May 9, 2013 at 12:25 PM

Here’s a question: How would the US response have been different that night if State was responding to A) what was determined by those on the ground to be a premeditated terrorist attack versus B) an attack determined to possibly/maybe/perhaps be born of a protest of a video based on info from CNN reporters on the ground … in Atlanta, GA?

Might there be a different in how you proceed? Maybe not – I’m just asking. But perhaps, Ms. Clinton, this is why it matters.

It certainly matters after the fact. If you want to prevent it from happening again, that is. How many resources in time/ people were spent going after evil video guy versus resources going after the actual terrorists?

In Boston, all resources went to going after the terrorists, not the makers of the Jihadi Inspire magazine.

Should we have different expectations for our diplomatic outposts than in Boston?

Damn right I do.

The conspiracy theorist in me thinks that this unknown, towel over the head, video guy (I say towel over his head because that’s what his photo shows) may have just been a planted scapegoat for the inevitable jihadi action. Do we know who he is? How do we know that this video wasn’t just planted by the left for just this occasion??? Is it plausible? Sure. I wouldn’t put it past them–they’d do it just as insurance to make sure their guy got reelected. And of course they MSM would carry the water for them and buy their Bullsh!t story—which they did.

I’m calling BULLSH!T from heads to tails of this thing. The left’s story is falling apart, from the before/during/after phases of the attack, to the media embargo, to the video, to the stand down orders, to Susan Rice and HRC—it’s all a load of bullsh!t.

In the two weeks following the incident, President Obama himself singled out the video as a contributing factor to the attack on four separate occasions (Sept. 18 on “Late Show With David Letterman”; Sept. 20 during a forum with Univision; and twice on Sept. 25, once on the daytime talk show “The View” and again that afternoon at his speech before the United Nations General Assembly).

ICYMI, my theory is that they are the architects of the video, encouraged its production, scapegoated one of their own peeps, and that fella is living in the lap of luxury–or in a “nondisclosed location” right about now.

May it please the Lord to do unto them what they do to us with their lies and obfuscations…

B.I.H.!!!!

If Hillary accepts responsibility for the Benghazi debacle, what penalty did she suffer..?

d1carter on May 9, 2013 at 12:51 PM

You know History DOES HAVE a way of repeating itself

President Obama:

we will find these killers, and bring them to justice.

O.J. Simpson (after being found Not Guilty)

I’m going to search for the killer of Nicole.

Where did these individuals conduct their Searches??

On the Golf Course.

Hmmmmm

ToddPA on May 9, 2013 at 12:52 PM

Oh, look who’s using families as props now.

I hope she is damned to B.I.H. for all eternity…

So indeed we learned nothing new. The initial reports were based on assumptions informed by real events that had occurred. As additional details became known, the analysis of what went on evolved.

But because the information and reports did indeed evolve, conspiracists insist this somehow proves many many many people in the administration, the state department, congress, and the military are ‘lying’ – they have all participated in a great ‘cover up’.

Yet there is still zero evidence.

verbaluce on May 9, 2013 at 11:19 AM

BS. See the email dated 12 September 2012 from Greg Hicks’ superior, Beth Jones, acting secretary of state for Near Eastern Affairs.

She – SPECIFICALLY -stated that the assault on the Benghazi consulate was a TERRORIST ATTACK carried out by AQ-related Muslim extremists.

In the email, Ms Jones states – UNEQUIVOCALLY - that she had spoken with the Libyan ambassador to Washington and ‘told him that the group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic terrorists.’

Would the secret CIA mission in Benghazi still be secret if this had been a Rep administration…? This is the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about.

and by that I mean, that OJ only killed 2. 4 were killed in Benghazi.

And they still got away with it.

They didn’t just get away with it….they are being given awards.

When will the FBI investigation of the Benghazi debacel be available..? Do they have any leads on the suspects they identified just before this last hearing..? Anybody heard anything?

Imagine the horror if a Rep administration had painted a target on the back of a gay American man and forced him deep into islamic territory to be killed and violated after his death ?

burrata on May 9, 2013 at 12:59 PM

If CLinton DOES run in 2016, these families need to be part of the staff of the opponents and be present at EVERY debate.

Benghazi = Hillary Clinton’s Chappaquiddick
And, as in Teddy Kennedy’s case, the lib pols & media will sweep it under the rug. Her political career should be toast but, instead, she gets awards.

burrata on May 9, 2013 at 1:13 PM

Matt Welch put together three pages’ worth of quotations this morning from prominent liberals in the aftermath of Benghazi flirting with (or even outright embracing) the idea of censoring material that offends Muslims.

Use the Benghazi assault (deliberately provoked?) as a means of limiting the First Amendment, just like using Newtown as a means of limiting the Second Amendment.

Hillary! declared herself to be a Progressive. Progressives do not like the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights or even the whole concept of Natural Law.

rbj on May 9, 2013 at 1:14 PM

if the video was the cause then why is the video (in HD full length) still on Youtube and no one in the World cares? Who were the backers of the making of the film? Could it have been the CIA in an attempt to create a new type of weapon for regime change, (The enraged Islam) ? When I play connect the dots, that is about the only thing that seems to mean any thing.

HornetSting on May 9, 2013 at 1:20 PM

Because at the moment, blissful ignorance in delusion is more to their liking.

There will be a day of reckoning, should the Left achieve the utopia of its dreams, and many of the tools will awaken then too late to a reality not to their liking.

Most will simply remain ignorant and wonder what happened.

hawkeye54 on May 9, 2013 at 1:27 PM

The main thing abour Broom Hilary and this video thingy is that she told each of the surviors this thing when she knew it to be a lie.
Why?
Lets call her to testify and tell us all why she kept repeating it over and over again all the while knowing it to be a lie.

Excellent piece. Eliminate “response time for air/rescue support” when no evidence event had concluded and “see the ABR report” when pertinent folks weren’t interviewed and THEY HAVE NOTHING. NOTHING I said. Special prosecutor please.

I look forward to seeing the families of the 4 dead Americans and the Benghazi whistleblowers band together in 2016 to “swiftboat” Hillary’s campaign for POTUS.
