As U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other Americans lay dead and the diplomatic outpost in Benghazi was left in smoldering ruins, the Ice Cube In Heels asked her three closest aides for advice about how to announce the death of “Chris Smith.”
That name—the wrong one—was the subject line of the email Clinton sent them as night turned to day in Libya and the full extent of the Islamist terror attack was becoming apparent.
During the 11-hour hearing of the Benghazi Select Committee there was one moment that epitomized the decades-long training Hillary has perfected to simulate anger or passion or outrage for the cameras.
In one emotional exchange, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA), asked Clinton what it was like "to be the subject of an allegation that you deliberately interfered with security that cost the life of a friend."
“It’s a very personally painful accusation. It has been rejected and disproven by nonpartisan, dispassionate investigators, but nevertheless, having it continue to be bandied around is deeply distressing to me,” Clinton said. “You know, I would imagine that I’ve thought far more about what happened than all of you put together. I’ve lost more sleep than all of you put together.”
Flanked by her attorney David Kendall and top aide Cheryl Mills, they made certain to feed her notes when the noose began to tighten around her neck and Democrats on the panel were there to rescue her with a series of prepped counterpoints.
Clinton is under the deepest scrutiny of her life and yet she manages, like a greased pig, to slip out of the hands of those who are trying to hold her to account.
There are, according to Judge Andrew Napolitano, 25 FBI agents and investigators in the Justice Department who will be looking at her testimony for material misrepresentations, her willingness to deceive, actual material lies while under oath and how many different versions she gave of various events. He suggests that they had a “field day” today. She’s also being investigated for four crimes: espionage, the failure to secure national security secrets, destruction of government property and lying under oath to a federal judge.
Punishment comes from God. Justice must be exacted for our ambassador who was murdered in the most inhuman of ways, for the untold savagery on the part of America’s enemies and a night of criminal failure.
How do the families of these murdered men restrain themselves? Listening to her blame Stevens for his own death is evil. #BenghaziHearing— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) October 22, 2015
