Happy fun times: Hillary fondly remembers Chris Stevens’s sense of humor in trying not to be murdered

posted at 5:21 pm on October 22, 2015 by Allahpundit

Who among us hasn’t warmly reminisced about a murdered friend’s attempts to prevent his own murder, after failing to lend him the help he needed at the time?

Remember the testimony of Eric Nordstrom, a security officer stationed in Libya, before the House Oversight Committee in 2012:

Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Wood, the commander of a Security Support Team (SST) sent home in August – against his wishes and, he says, the wishes of the late Ambassador Chris Stevens – said “we were fighting a losing battle. We couldn’t even keep what we had.”

Nordstrom agreed, saying, “it was abundantly clear we were not going to get resources until the aftermath of an incident. And the question that we would ask is again, ‘How thin does the ice need to get until someone falls through?’”…

Wood said that when he heard of the attack on the Benghazi post on September 11, it was “instantly recognizable” that it had been a terrorist attack.

Why?

“Mainly because of my prior knowledge there,” Wood said. “I almost expected the attack to come. We were the last flag flying. It was a matter of time.”

Contrast Hillary today with Nordstrom back then. You realize this freakishly odd human being is quite likely to be the next president, yes?

Wait and see what those numbers are in the next round of polling. All the coverage that matters (MSM) are treating Hillary like she slayed the GOP dragons. Biden tucks his tail between his legs and runs away, Hillary destroys the Benghazi committee…could not have been a better week for her.

So, the old bag filibusters for 11 hours and it becomes “Hillary destroys the Benghazi committee”? Because the MSM doesn’t declare her performance — and that’s what it was — an abject failure?

No one in their right mind expects the MSM to do anything but throw token slow curveballs her way once in a while. The rest of the time, they are swinging the bat for her. The masses are increasingly getting their news elsewhere, and are becoming aware that they have been sheep for too long.

How anyone can honestly want this despicable, bitter, conniving harpy to be elected to our highest office is beyond my understanding.

The shadenfreude is going to be delicious when she and the blindly bleating sheep water-carriers like you get the comeuppance that’s coming.

I hope you are all ready for 8 years of Clinton drama, because we are going to get it. Good and hard.

And Trump is going to save us? No thank you. If he’s the nominee, I stay home.

Yes, absolutely, that’s true. The MSM is the only coverage that matters. Partisan blogs from either side mean nothing. The major networks and major newspapers drive the coverage and Hillary is Queen in every major paper and news broadcast last night and today.

And when Jonathan Gruber talked about the stupidity of the American sheeple he was talking about useful idiots like yourself. Congratulations!
The MSM you a worship are complicit in making you the stooge that you are. That is nothing to brag about really but here you are strutting and preening, blissfully unaware that you are a total sap.

My kind, gentle, loving and honest mother is dead but this “person” still draws breath?

Reason 4,335,041 that I’m an agnostic.

Chris Stevens’ father said his son understood the risk of his job and that his death should not be politicized.

Chris was not willing to be the kind of diplomat who would strut around in fortified compounds. He amazed and impressed the Libyans by walking the streets with the lightest of escorts, sitting in sidewalk cafes, chatting with passers-by. There was a risk to being accessible. He knew it, and he accepted it.
What Chris never would have accepted was the idea that his death would be used for political purposes.

If the mindless voters elect this despicable slug then they deserve all that befalls them. This poor sick Republic is falling into the depths of an abyss and the impact will be sudden and final. Sad but true.

That kind of warning didn’t make a difference when voting for Obama and it wont for Hillary. They are fine with what befalls them, because its other people who feel the pain.
