GOP rep: Hillary yelled at a congressman in a briefing just after Benghazi for calling it a terror attack

posted at 8:01 pm on August 16, 2013 by Allahpundit

She was, he says, passionate in her insistence that it was a reaction to the Mohammed movie YouTube video, not an act of terror. Which is interesting for lots of reasons, starting with the fact that no less than Carter Ham said it was clear within hours that it was terrorism. “Top intelligence officials” told NBC News the same thing. Why was Hillary telling Congress one thing if the counterterror brain trust was saying something else privately?

But wait — Kinzinger says Hillary told them this just two days after the attack. Maybe word hadn’t gotten over to State from the CIA by then about what really happened. Maybe it was an innocent mistake.

Or maybe not:

Nick Merrill, a Clinton aide, provided the following statement to The Hill on the condition that it be run in its entirety.

“Here are the facts: on September 20th, 2012, nine days after the attack – not two as he falsely stated – Secretary Clinton was part of two large briefings held for the benefit of all 535 Members of Congress. Hundreds of House members were present for their session, and more than 90 Senators attended theirs. On January 23rd, 2013, she testified publicly before both the Senate and House. Those are the only two times Adam Kinzinger would have been within a mile of her.

“So we are to believe that he woke up today, 10 months and 27 days later, and suddenly remembered he heard something that 434 other people somehow missed? Not so much. What happened this morning was nothing short of brazen deceit.”

The news hadn’t made it over to State nine days later, huh? It had made it to the White House: On September 20, 2012, Jay Carney abandoned the dopey “YouTube video” explanation and confirmed for reporters that, yes, it was terrorism. But just because the timeline’s damning for Hillary doesn’t mean that she said what Kinzinger claims she said. If he’s mentioning this for the first time only now, 11 months later, maybe he really is guilty of “brazen deceit.”

Or maybe not:

Kinzinger actually addressed this point with Secretary Clinton when she testified about Benghazi before the House, back on January 23:

KINZINGER: When you briefed us, you said unequivocally this was a result of a video. I remember in fact, you got pretty upset when somebody suggested this was a terror attack. This was our briefing that we had. But we find out now it wasn’t a video, it was this terrorist attack.

He raised this point with Hillary herself, at a House hearing, just three months after the alleged yelling incident occurred. And she didn’t deny it happened; follow the last link and read Jim Geraghty’s transcript. She claimed that her earlier remarks about the YouTube video weren’t about Benghazi but rather about the other protests around the region on 9/11/12, like the one at the U.S. embassy in Cairo. You believe her, don’t you? She and her spokesman have obviously been completely above board on all of this.

In other news, Michelle Obama thinks America might be ready for its first woman president.

Even if it was a reaction to the video, it would STILL be an act of terror.

Why isn’t anyone charging Hillbag with Obstruction? She OBVIOUSLY was involved with or was possibly at the very CENTER of the biggest cover up in US History, why are they not prosecuting her old wrinkly butt?

09.12.12 @04:07 (09.11.12 @10:07 PM EST): Secretary Clinton issues a statement acknowledging the death of one State Dept. officer, Sean Smith, and blames Internet video for violence. It includes:

‘We are working to determine the precise motivations and methods of those who carried out this assault. Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior, along with the protest that took place at our embassy in Cairo yesterday, as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. America’s commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is no justification for this; none.’

09.14.12: Bodies of slain arrive at Andrews AFB. Obama, Biden, Clinton, and Panetta tell families that the video is to blame.

The first time Clinton called it terrorism in public:

09.21.12: Clinton says Benghazi was a terrorist attack:

‘It is, I think, self-evident that what happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack. What happened in Benghazi was a terrorist attack, and we will not rest until we have tracked down and brought to justice the terrorists who murdered four Americans.’

Still does not explain Barry going to the UN and saying that the future does not belong to those who slander Islam…or the Rice five-appearance talk show circuit blaming some schmuck out in LA for making a anti-Mohammed video on You Tube that had but a scant less than thousand hits at the time…or the continued Carny dog and pony show at the White House insisting that this was all a bad reaction to a bad insulting video…and in the weeks and months following the terrorist assault on our “mission” out in Benghazi wherein local militias with ties to AQ were providing “security” and that the CIA was using Benghazi to funnel Gadaffi’s weapons into Syria through Turkey to arm AQ affiliated anti-Assad groups…Hillary and company promised to get to the bottom of it all…but now, how many months have passed and we still do not know “officially” what transpired?

All that phoney scandal stuff, you know.

someone tipped off the terrorists video critics that there was a stash of weapons there. If only we could figure out who high up in the state department had ties to terrorists the muzzy bros. Maybe that would tell us who really prompted the attack.

She was told by Mr. Hicks on the night of the attack itself (0200 Hrs Libya time) that the attack was a terrorist attack. She did not get her information in a “briefing.”

IndieDogg on August 16, 2013 at 8:41 PM

I’m pretty sure Shrillary routinely yells a lot. And maybe throws things. Like lamps.

Imagine what she does when she gets really, really angry and throws a tantrum.

Unfortunately, if she becomes POTUS this won’t work with the likes of Putin. They will laugh at her, and goad her, and bait her. Putin and his ilk will find a way to manipulate the crazy lady.

Timin203 on August 16, 2013 at 8:46 PM

Even addled Hillary probably now realizes that she was the terrorist.

The four lost at Benghazi knew they were surrounded by enemy forces and post-Qadafi remnants whom meant them no good. That is a given.

But where terrorism comes into the picture is when the Benghazi four hold out hoping their nation will come to their aid until the realization that Hillary has abandoned and betrayed those patriots to an avoidable fate just like ex-friends in the Clintoon’s Old Arkansas.

Probably a feeling similar to those experienced by the Branch Davidians at Waco whom Janet Reno (with Weasley Clark’s help) slaughtered knowing the odds she could get away with it…. and did.

The only thing that could be worse, for the reality minded, than Hillary! lying about Benghazi being caused by a video is if she actually believed that for more than a few hours. Much less for days afterwards.

But at least then she would not be a “liar”.

Tough choice. Apparently she is choosing the blue pill. And since blue pill voters elected Comrade O twice, it might make sense in today’s brave new multicultural politically correct Orwellian socialist America.

Yes, and it was probably a very watered-down version of what he really wanted to say.

I’m beginning to think that “mistake” he made in his much-ballyhooed Cairo speech, about the U.S. being “one of the world’s largest Muslim countries,” wasn’t so much a mistake as a statement of aspiration.

I’m beginning to wonder if the Democrats, and Obama, understand the phrase, “Governing with the consent of the governed.” They are doing so many things that cause Americans to lose trust in their government and they just don’t seem to understand how important trust is. It’s all about their plan, about their ideas, about how they believe the country should be governed and no much about how anyone else feels.

I’m really beginning to become concerned, especially when Obama talks about doing things by himself and working around Congress. That’s not the way things are done in this country, and that’s why we’ve been a country so long.

We have a constitution which Obama and company don’t respect. They need too start working within the parameters set by the Constitution.

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2013/aug/16/barbara-bush-unbelievably-accomplished-hillary-cli/

Hillary Rodham Clinton received some strong support for a 2016 White House run from a conservative camper on Thursday — none other than Barbara Bush, the 31-year-old daughter of former President George W. Bush.

Mrs. Clinton is “unbelievably accomplished,” and should definitely launch a campaign, Miss Bush said, Politico reported.

She made the statements during an interview with People magazine, which is due to publish the full article in late August.

“I don’t know who she’d be running against,” Miss Bush added, Politico reported. She also clarified that she wasn’t saying she’d actually vote for the former first lady. Miss Bush supports gay marriage, but touts no political affiliation.

Meanwhile, her uncle, former Florida Gov. Crown Prince Jeb of the House of Bush, has been mulled as a potential strong Republican candidate for the White House in 2016.

Just look how angry that little Congressman looks in that Rodeo clown suit!!!

The Libyan president said the next day that it was an AQ attack, IIRC. It was pretty clear even to idiots like me what the nature of this attack was, once a few details came out a day or two later. I think that’s why I was so shocked at the immediate lies that Clinton was telling, and then the way they kept telling the lie a week later. They think we are that stupid.

Sets up the “War on Women” theme again, you’d be a sexist if you disagreed with her (like this obvious woman hater Kinzinger).

Then it sets up a young Hispanic from the newly Blue state of Tejas to be her 2024 replacement when Mexico and the U.S. become fully integrated.

Voila, no need to have a minority mostly white republican party when you could just merge the corrupt one party rule of Mexico City with the corrupt Democrats in D.C.

Too bad we didn’t know enough details when the freakin Pravda MSM UNLOADED on Romney for daring to speak of the “incident” soon after it happened. The propagandists had convinced America that it was too soon to know what happened – and they would need at least a couple of months to figure it out. They actually succeeded in turning the story into Romney ” gaffe” and took the focus off what really happened.
Everyone backed down and cowered to the mighty DC machine….sans Hannity, Rush and some others.

More people really, really need to seriously consider that Hillary Clinton is really, really not very intelligent and certainly isn’t very wise nor ethical. Really.

If she REALLY believed that which she ranted about (and brayed to the world about afterward — “it was a reaction to the Mohammed movie….”), then she’s truly an imbecile who only knows how to mime what she’s told to mime.

No one dare stands in her way. Curious about NYT’s piece of actual reporting, but apparently everyone on the planet was about to point at it so it may have been unavoidable to lead on that one.
Tyranny is winning. Hillary will turn the military on us if need be. That’s if Barry hasn’t already felt that need.
I dare say some on her side see the monster up close and it scares even them, and there are maybe even still a few that regard themselves as a liberal democrat fully in denial of the definition that term has progressed into-the ruling class. But no one dare get in her way. It would be like standing in front of that tank in Tienanmen Square, visually memorable but no one ever finds out what happened to you.

onomo on August 17, 2013 at 7:47 AM

Continue to press her on the timeline and her remarks. These people lie through their teeth for a living, and the truth only reveals itself when they’re stressed into erupting into anger. Her “what difference does it make” comment is one.
They’re used to not being challenged on their remarks. Secretary of State Ketchup’s wife Terrayza did the same thing after a speech in which she made the curious remark about something being “not very Pennsylvanian”. Right afterward, on video, a reporter asked her what she meant by that remark, and she denied making it. She walked away, turned and came back, and ripped into him for putting words in her mouth. She’d made that remark not 5 minutes before in her speech.
Once they’ve shut their yap, that’s it. No questions. No blowback. If there is any ‘splainin’ to do, they get indignant, and if you push ‘em and push ‘em, they’ll crack and say something revealing.
Keep pushing Hillary. She’ll probably win anyway, making promises she can’t keep to the terminally aggrieved, and brandishing the rusty shield against the “war on wimmens”. This notion that it’s “her turn”, or that we must have a female president at this very moment is ingrained in too many sheep in this herd.
To our peril.

Why oh why then, wasn’t she cited for contempt of congress, forcing her to defend her indefensible contemptous behavior, instead of letting the decitful one create her own faux battleground issues later in her coast to the presidency?
You had her; why’d you let her off the hook? Why do the wimps in the GOP give the corrupotocrats waivers when they make their own demise and hand it you on a platter?

Here is hoping someone much more creative and clever than I ‘mashes’ together a campaign ad as a take off of her 2am commercial against Obama.

Start: phone on nightstand ringing.
Still of bloody finger prints at consulate.
Still of Barack/Hillary solemn over caskets followed by video of her claiming the video o blame.
Video of her aide stating she’s hospitalized with brain bruise.
Video of congressmans claim she angrily defended her position.
Side by side stills of consulate fingerprints and four caskets.

The mere fact that this dumb bit*h thought she could actually sell the “YouTube” video meme to anyone with a brain alone disqualifies her to file papers to run for dog-catcher. What an a-hole.

I just had a revelation. We’re looking at this wrong. The problem here isn’t the definition of terrorism. It’s the definition of “is”! After all, “was” is just the past tense of “is”, and we know the Clinton dictionary has a lot more definitions for the “to be” verbs than most of us are used to. This is why they have been able to be so flexible!

Hope he yelled back and told her to show some respect.She’s not the Tsarina-yet!

They are just praying they can get through the 2016 election before Delta and Southwest flights start being blown out of the sky with stolen Benghazi SAMs… 400 SAMs will rack up quite the body count, and the media won’t be able to sweep it under the rug like dead Mexicans killed by Holder’s F&F guns…

Aren’t there minutes of these meetings?

One of ‘The’ Clintons not being entirely truthful about something?
Nahh.

“Basically, in a very loud angry voice she says, ‘it’s irresponsible to even suggest this is a terrorist attack, this is a YouTube video.’”

Somehow I just… I can’t imagine that…
