Hillary Clinton: Khattala Was Very Much On Our Minds Since The Night Of The Attack In 2012

posted at 7:56 pm on June 17, 2014 by Duane Patterson

The former Secretary of State upstaged her interview on Fox News with Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren by showing up on the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire , I mean, the CNN town hall set with Christiane Amanpour. The only thing missing was the warm-up comedian and the applause signs. But the first question asked was Madame Secretary’s reaction to the capture of long-known Benghazi terrorist, Ahmed Abu Khattalah. Here’s the video. Go to 1:30 in.



Excuse me? This guy was on our minds from the night of the attack? He certainly wasn’t on Jay Carney’s mind for the next month and a half. Khattala wasn’t on the mind of the President. He wasn’t on the mind of Susan Rice. If you look at the entire video record of the Obama administration from 9/11/12 forward, this statement by Hillary Clinton is objectively untrue.

If you want to be charitable and let her redefine history, Khattali may have been on their minds, but the detainment of the YouTube videographer was on their lips.

Bill Clinton used to lie with an unusally-gifted ability. Hillary Clinton wages the same war on truth every day, but not with the same panache.

Shameless liar who has nothing but contempt for working Americans. She and her entire family disgust me.

I hope she keeps running her mouth.

There’s no way this wench runs in 2016. She would get slaughtered.

I don’t think Hillary is really serious about running for president, otherwise she wouldn’t be doing interviews left and right where she is bound to say a bunch of stupid things. I think she is first and foremost interested in selling her book, so she won’t be so broke.

What would Hillary know about “the fog of war”?

I’ll bet the “fog of war” didn’t stop her from finding the meal her tax payer funded chef prepared that night. Or finding her bed in that taxpayer funded mansion.

Ambassador Stevens and the Marines in Benghazi weren’t that lucky.

Looks like she’s been inhaling lead fumes or something.

Of course, they knew all about this guy.

She and Bill had him over to the White house during their foursome with the Arafats.

(there’s a visual…)

That would be the same fog that made a Bosnian girl giving her flowers seem like sniper fire.

F X Muldoon on June 17, 2014 at 8:31 PM

Hillary is full of it. She was all video, all the time, and this clown wasn’t on her mind at all. If she thought at all about Benghazi she thought only tactically about how the events were affecting her election prospects. Even her most partisan supporters would say this, I don’t doubt.

MTF on June 17, 2014 at 8:31 PM

Hillary moans “Why do people think I’m lying all the time?”

Because you ARE?

You lying effin @#$t. It sure is convenient how your memory of events fades, is non-existent or doesn’t matter when it suits you. I knew the very first time I ever saw you that you were plum nasty.

This woman could haunt times square at high noon.

So this Khattala guy was the actual maker of the video? I thought they had already arrested and jailed him. I am so confused…

Who could have thought that on a random date like September 11th that there could be trouble at a US installation in an Arab country in the middle of an r-word??

Really. Do you expect Herself to be some kind of clairvoyant?

Where are the 31 witnesses/survivors?

spinwedge60 on June 17, 2014 at 9:24 PM

Good grief, I forced myself to listen to that love fest for the “wide-eyed” ingenue by her sycophantic audience. Does she have to flap her hands around so much?

Hillary Clinton seems to imply that “events in Cairo” led to the Benghazi massacre. She also thinks that the current alleged suspect should be tried in our courts. The Dems continue to think that acts of terrorism are issues to be tackled by our justice system.

And who was that butch teacher that was so worried about gun control?

spinwedge60 on June 17, 2014 at 9:24 PM

That question crosses my mind constantly – be it re: Benghazi, IRS, F&F, Taliban for Deserter, Illegal Aliens over-running the border, etc.

JUST WHAT has this administration threatened or promised in order to get so many to sell out their country? I have a hunch it’s on the order of Kathleen Willey’s cat or Vince Foster.

Khattala was on her mind ever since he was captured. Prior to that, she didn’t know who he was.
