Hillary knew!

A longtime Clinton confidant reportedly advised then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton two days after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack that an Al Qaeda-tied group had planned the deadly assault and used a protest as cover — but despite this warning, Clinton’s U.N. ambassador went on to publicly claim the attack was “spontaneous.”

The guidance from ex-Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal was contained in a memo sent Sept. 13, according to The New York Times. It is the latest documentation effectively contradicting the administration’s early narrative that the attack was driven by protests over an anti-Islam Internet video — and raising questions over why officials stuck to that story for days.

According to the Times, Blumenthal initially blamed “demonstrators” angry over that video for the attacks. But the next day, he sent Clinton a very different memo.

According to the Times, Blumenthal told Clinton the attack was driven by Al Qaeda-tied Ansar al-Shariah members who had planned it for a month and used a protest as cover. He cited “sensitive sources.”

    The Hilebeast is as vile as a human being can be. With her , it’s all about her quest for power and riches. The lies, scandles, corruption, are all just normal business for her. She thinks it’s ok to lie, cheet, etc as long as it’s done to advance her quest for power. She is having more and more difficulty keeping the lies straight, that’s the reason for her reluctance to take questions from reporters. Be fun to watch her handlers try to coach her , teach her which lie to use for which question, or how to dodge the questions.

    Hillary lied –Four men died!

  • Upaces
  • John VanderKelen

    Did Hillary perjure herself. Were laws broken. America’s Founding Fathers in drawing up the Constitution knew that accountability would be needed.

  • mustang6984

    Anyone with 1/2 a brain knew that the attacks had NOTHING to do with some flaky “movie”. One look at the calender to see what the date was on the day of the attacks was enough to suspect that it had NOTHING to do with the “movie”.

    Billary was incompetent then…still is today. Certainly proves that she has NO business EVER being POTUS! Just one of many reasons!

  • I Seigel

    When the attacks first happened, Sidney Blumenthal wrote to Clinton that they were instigated by people protesting the anti-Islamic videos. Then, 2 days later, he wrote to her that they were done by Al-Qaeda operatives (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/05/21/emails-reportedly-show-confidant-told-clinton-benghazi-attack-planned-by-aq/)

    The attacks happened on Tuesday, Sep 11, and Blumenthal’s 2nd message to Clinton was sent on Thur, Sep 13. Who knows if she read it right away or not? And then Susan Rice went on the Sunday talk shows on Sun, Sep 16. Not a lot of time to verify one guy’s email claim, especially with the lack of intelligence resources in the area, the multiple sources of information, and the need to “get it right” and not make unsubstantiated claims (WMD, anyone?).

    And who is this Sidney Blumenthal. FOX and other news sources identify him as a “Clinton confidant”. His bio says he’s a journalist and editor. Apparently he has no intelligence background, no connections to the CIA or NSA or any other branch of government. He’s just a friend.

    So should the State Department have followed the intelligence given to them by the CIA, the FBI and the NSA, or should they have followed a lead from a friend of Clinton’s?

    This seems to be another bogus news story whipped up by FOX and others. If the email had have come from the Joint Chiefs, the Director of Central Intelligence or the head of the NSA, that would be one thing. But for the email to come from a “confidant”?? PLEASE!!

    • mustang6984

      Keep covering her butt..someone has to. And it is a full time job these days as well.

      The Ambassador himself knew something was cooking..and had requested extra security teams weeks before the attacks…but was refused. Given the date it occurred…no one should have been surprised. But then..Billary seems to always be on the wrong end of intelligence. Every day of the week!

    • Mark Lahti

      Nice try in trying to convince someone (no one around here) that you are reporting the facts. Seems you have taken quite a nice bite out of the liberal/socialist propaganda “news” front. Blumenthal was not just a “friend”, he was the head of the Hillary Foundation. He was not just some unknown, unreliable, source to the Clinton machine, he was in neck deep in their BS. All the lies, fraud, deceit, cheating, etc. So, if your point here is to defend Hillary (which it appears you are doing). You have failed miserably. Hillary did indeed follow the the bad advice given to her by her foundation master. She tried to change her story when he came back with better information but it was to late. The blame game on the producer of an obscure video was put on the stage for least a week or more. Hillary tried to defend her incompetence by repeating the first available source that removed any implication that it might have fallen in her lap. This brings all kinds of context to the “What difference does it make at this point anyway?” remark. She would say and do anything at all to remove any semblance of blame on her. She is absolutely no better than the current HNIC of the WH.

      • I Seigel

        And again I ask, what expertise does being the head of the “Hillary Foundation” bring to bear on the topic of Benghazi? The Foundation is a charitable organization, not an intelligence-gathering group. And what gives you the idea that a Secretary of State has day-to-day involvement with a charitable organization bearing her family name? Sorry, but it’s YOU who have failed miserably to connect the dots. Blindness and mindlessness will do that. So drone on.

        • Mark Lahti

          Read and learn moron. Your response is enough for anyone to see how much kool-aide you have consumed. The exact thing that you are saying about not having reliable information to provide the Hillary is the exact argument being made by all here on this site. Again the liberal tirade is to state the obvious and yet draw totally ignorant conclusions. Keep it up you are only proving my point. Just don’t get and never will. Can’t fix stupid.

          • I Seigel

            Blah blah. You’ve offered nothing actually. Just the tired old right-wing rants from last year, and the year before that. You’ve not even refuted anything I’ve said by offering facts. Quote a news source like I did. What? You can’t? Duh. You’re just a boring ranter with no original thoughts.

          • Pete Dillon

            And your dumb ass has offered, ” Blah blah. You’ve offered nothing actually. Just the tired old LEFT-wing rants from last year, and the year before that.”

        • Pete Dillon

          Yes, and the charity is “The Clintons”.

        • Pete Dillon

          Why don’t you use a cogent paradigm, to construct a viable algorithm? You are just a heuristic babbler with no inductive, or deductive reasoning skills.

          • I Seigel

            Whoa! That’s QUITE impressive!! Several 3-syllable words used!! And your spellchecker worked, too! Hurray for you! Now it’s time for art class. Let’s try fingerpainting.

            The only actual statement you’ve offered here is, “Yes, and the charity is “The Clintons”.” The rest of your posts are just rants, with no facts, just name-calling. And you haven’t even TRIED to answer any of my questions about Blumenthal, and why he should be considered a respected source/smoking gun. Try moving on to high-school level. Your talents are wasted here.

            (And notice I didn’t call you a single name!)

          • Pete Dillon

            Yours, are wasted any and everywhere.

          • I Seigel

            This thread is a month old. Haven’t you got better things to do. Move along, Junior. There’s nothing for you here. Unless, of course, you want to stop showing off with your use of the word heuristic, and actually post something of some logical and factual value. Which you haven’t. Nor did you answer my earlier question. But never mind. Lets move forward. It’s now July!.

        • Pete Dillon

          At your best, you are a heuristic reasoner, at you worst you have no reasoning ability at all.

    • Pete Dillon

      Hillary, Please bend over so I Seigel can get a full kiss of your lying ass.

  • Donald McDermott

    She has lied from the very start and it was crystal clear then that she failed to do her job which was to protect the embassy and its staff first and foremost. She arrogantly made her famous statement which was “what difference does it make anyway” She should have been charged for negligence of her duties at that time right after the attack was carried out.

    • hpinnc

      If this “liar” tried to speak the truth about anything, she would become tongue-tied & wouldn’t be able to do anything but stutter.

    • Mike O’Mara

      If by “lied from the very start” you mean from when she began to speak then you are completely correct.

  • curtmavi38

    Of course she knew they could have told the truth to the families of the victims of this terrible incident and to the people of the USA but they (she and Obama)
    chose to tell a ball face lie and did it for months. Folks Hillary & Obama are liars and the truth will never come out of their lying mouths. If you will notice Hillary and Obama are beginning to show their corruption in their faces. Do you actually think she deserves the presidency. I think not. meh

    • hpinnc

      There is no way I would ever consider voting for this ugly POS. That goes for pretty boy obama too. They are both scumbags of the lowest common denominator. I have noticed their corruption in their faces. That is a sign they have lied to the American people so much, their faces are hurting from them trying to keep a straight face when they open their mouths. I know it must be even hard for them to chew & eat, their faces thinks they are about to tell another lie to the American people. If & when they finally go, I breath a sigh of relief, & say good riddance.

    • Mike O’Mara

      Beloved leader and Hillary Rotten Clinton were involved in several criminal acts including weapons going to enemies we would sooner or later need to face while holding the weapons Barack and Hill provided. There is no way lowlife scum like our Marxist Islamic “president” and his intolerable socialist bully secretary of state would ever admit even a small error much less major crimes. We also must be constantly aware of the very tight connections both Obama (through his brother) and Hillary (through her chief aide and lover) had with the Muslim Brotherhood. Both were and still are tied into the Muslim Brotherhood right at the top.

      • Ramona Briscoe

        Mike O’Mara, thank you for be honest, about both, Hillary, her ?lover, of the muslim brotherhood, over 20yrs…muslim Huma still in the White House, Valerie JARRETT muslim brotherhood, Iran Born, Chicago X crooked lawyer, that baby sit lazy Michelle/MICHAEL, ONE of their mentors, big time PRISSY, BARRYsoetoroBarckHUSSEINobams, his emergency side kick/assisted/ really his boss…the WORLD KNOWS, finally, America knows all, now…HILLARY IS ONE “MIXED UP”!! WORN OUT !!!, OLD WOMEN…SHE & BILL A DISGRACE TO AMERICA…now Chelsea too!!!!

  • ken29

    Why is all the emphasis on what she knew and did after the attack. It seems to me that the things she knew before the attack and failed to fix are the important things. There is a report authored(?) by Joe Lieberman (a Liberal Democrat through and through) and Susan Collins (a RINO?) titled “Flashing Red: A Special Report On The Terrorist Attack At Benghazi” that lists 10 “findings” five or them critical of State Department actions before the attack took place, several of which could have defeated or prevented the attack. In that context Clinton’s quote ‘What Difference At This Point Does It Make?!’ has a totally different meaning.

    • hpinnc

      You make some very good points, Ken. I wish Trey would question her on that too, but she would do nothing but lie about it. Did you notice how eager she is to get those emails out there for the American people to see what has been going on [ after the judge said she could not wait until January] Of course I think she has already gone through them & discarded the ones that might incriminate her in any way. I would think that would be unethical, if not illegal in some way. I do not trust this woman, I think she is a snake in the grass. I would not trust her in an outside toilet with a muzzle on. If anyone can get some semblance of truth out of her, it would be Sen. Trey Gowdy, but I don’t look for anything of any significance to come out of his hearings.

  • mary ellen

    unfortunately, Mrs Clinton doesn’t know how to tell the truth. What a poor example for women, girls and America in general.

    • reggie

      To a sociopath, everything they decide is truth.

    • Mike O’Mara

      What about her distinguished husband who stood in front of the world with a minister on one side and a lawyer on the other and told the world that oral sex was not sex at all. I had a youth group at the time and believe me his lie confused and disturbed them very much. Slick Willie was never any good but he was (to the public at least) likable. Hillary never was. She was and always will be totally detestable. Now it seems her daughter has the same trait.

  • mohrri

    Of course she knew, but she didn’t want to expose the lie of the great deceiver Obama, that Al Qaeda was destroy and on the run, being afraid that this good for nothing cursed president, will lost his race for the White House 2nd term. So I ask the women specially, no because you all want a woman in the W.H. do the same thing that the blacks did, to vote for a traitor, and deceiver only to have a black president, no matter he was a abomination for the future of this country. Hillary CYNIC Rotten Clinton should be thrown out of the race for president.

    • ken29

      MOHRRI: So support Trey Gowdy. He’s probing the wrong end of the Benghazi “timeline” but he’s our best chance to get her legally discredited sufficiently to overcome the Liberal masses.

      • hpinnc

        Yes, I think I might could support him if he was to run. I’ll say this on his behalf, I think he loves this country, the constitution,& the American people. He has really tried to get to the bottom of some of these democratic shenanigans.

  • Ddenney1

    Blumenthal??? Who does HE work for!!! OH YEAH hilly foundation!!!! I heard he told her a video then it was a planned riot/murder plot then we hear it’s about gun running!!!! I just do not know how ANYBODY could vote for ANYONE when you know in advance they are LIARS WITH EXTREMELY BAD CHARACTERS!!!! You can follow Hilly’s flaws back to Watergate but SHE’S the first women!!!! NOTHING else matters look how well the first gay black Moslem foreigner worked out!!!!

    • I Seigel

      Yeah, we don’t need no women in office either. No blacks, no gay Moslem foreigners. Let’s just keep it to white Christian American guys. And the occasional Catholic.

      That would leave out Ben Carson, Cruz, Rubio, Fiorina….

      • Mark Lahti

        Typical liberal exaggerated response. Make the counter remark so preposterous as to appear to make the original comment ridiculous. The conservatives have no problem with any of the classes of people you mentioned. Women-no problem, blacks-no problem, etc., etc.,….. All we are asking for is an honest person with the background, education, citizenship requirement, integrity, and common sense enough to do the job. That’s all it has ever been about. But you liberals continue to try to muddy the waters, cloud the message, and lie about the facts in order to win the battle. It is always about win at any cost for your folks. Forget about honesty, integrity, qualifications, etc. Your attempt to suggest that only “white Christian American guys” will be the only acceptable candidates from the conservative side is totally blown out of the water when you yourself list the people that are in the lead in the race for nomination. Get a grip on yourself and try to be somewhat rational in your conversation and then maybe someone might take your BS seriously.

        • Ramona Briscoe

          Bravo!! Mark Lahti, you are so right about Seigel !!! HIS
          MOUTH, A LIBERAL TROLL…

        • I Seigel

          What an ironic response! This from the same people who condemned the rulings for gay marriage because it would allow someone to marry their goat!

    • Mark Lahti

      I think it goes back quite a bit further than that. You can trace her deceit, lies, theft, extortion, fraud and much more all the way back to Arkansas. Her and hubbby Bill “the womanizer” Clinton have been at this kind of thing since before they even entered the political ring.

    • William Walizer

      Did you mean “Whitewater” scandal, when Bill and Hilary lived in the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion?

    • hpinnc

      Like SATAN & his imps, she has her followers who don’t see no wrong, hear no wrong or wouldn’t believe anything negative concerning her. In their eyes, she can do no wrong, & we’re just a bunch of ole disgruntled republicans. Tea Party, even. who wants to smear her in her own dung. I don’t have to smear her, I say she has done it to herself, & should be going to prison instead of running for the WH.

  • MidnightDStroyer

    I’m not sure about jail for them; with all of the “Wars on (abstract nouns, like drugs, terrorism, poverty, etc, etc, ad nauseum)” going on, stop & consider what the Lawful penalties for Treason are during war-time? Officially speaking, Congress has not *declared* any war since World War 2, but American troops have been on a de-facto wartime footing & been ordered into military/paramilitary hostilities since the end of the so-called “Cold War.”

    The biggest problem would be in jury selection, though. There are still a bit more than a dozen prospective jurists who still sympathize & support the Obama Administration, as idiotic & self-delusionary as it is; where are you going to find, anywhere in this country, 12 citizens whose lives have NOT been upended & damaged by the current crop of crooks in Office? Everyone would have to be recused for being either a victim of their crimes already or have been supporting their crimes (aiding & abetting) already.

    • Ddenney1

      Your right but it would not matter! The powers that be cover each other and their will NEVER be charges brought against anybody until we elect people with honor to office! The Tea Party is vilified because they went in to do what we really wanted them too but you have to ask how long before they are the “NEW PROFESSONAL” politicians!! TERM LIMITS NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      • Mike O’Mara

        Single term. In addition a Vote of Confidence procedure that can remove any of them from office immediately not when the next election rolls around.

    • autrypma

      I had thought of that…but when anyone has done as many criminal things as Ob, H.Clinton, E. Holder, J. Biden, Peloski and more have aided and abetted much of this..I think it is a case for the FBI and the biggest courts in the land…the corruption is incredibile. Why should Congress have to agree to prosecute
      Criminals…when it is extremely obvious, even when covered up that “many things in Denmark are more than rotten”
      If we wait for the next election (which they will try EVERY WAY to rig and fraud, I fear that ISIS will have control of everything, including the US…Too much at stake..

  • Jimmy Quick

    Even this story is B/S. Hillary knew as she watched this live via satellite, that ISIS (not Al Qaeda), was sent by the state department in order to receive weapons, stolen from Libya during the fall of Gaddafi, committed these atrocities.

    Everything fell apart when it was learned that our Ambassador (Stevens) was a great proponent of homo-sexuality and was placed in charge of an advertising campaign by Hillary, to spread homo-sexuality amongst the people of Benghazi.

    This thing was the “Perfect Storm”, all engineered by Hillary, and anyone who thinks that we need this kind of leadership in America is just as insane as she is.

    • hpinnc

      I had not seen or heard this Jimmy, but it certainly would not surprise me at all. I have read enough on obama, to believe he would polish a knob in a heartbeat, & I think everyone knows why Hillary is so fond of the senator from Delaware’s [ ? ] wife. May have something to do with why Bill had a wandering eye for Molinsky.

    • Ramona Briscoe

      Damn, Jimmy Quick, did not know Stevens/Hillary, homo stuff, we know she was a big LES, Bill, does not care, thinks SO funny, Hillary WAS SO, active, that she love os much, Gennifer Flowers confirmed Hillary’s homosexuality, article out, internet, 09/20/2013, by, B Christopher Agee, she must have wanted Stevens dead for a very bad REASON? lot more to Benz. murder of four….

      • Jimmy Quick

        Never said she intended it to happen that way. It just happened, and on her watch. That by itself is bad enough.

  • jcfriday

    We do not need her in the White House we need her in jail where she and her boss Obama belong. They are both traitors and criminals.

    • USACITIZEN97

      BUT, only for a short term followed by treason charges and then a beautiful residence at the ESTATES OF PIG PEN GRAVE YARD

    • Dolores Adams

      You are entirely correct. Hillary Rotten Clinton can’t be trusted.

    • Maurice

      I totally agree..!

    • Upaces

      Jail? Prison? That is TREASON….That is the death penalty.

    • snowyriver

      Yes and meanwhile the maker of the video is still in jail.

    • atchafa

      Every time she tells the truth one of her eyes fall out

  • William Acini

    shame on her she want to go in white house we done need her there

    • hpinnc

      She must really think the American people are really STUPID, & if enough are to put her & bill back in the WH, then they deserve what they will get. More of the same, for the last seven yrs. A government out of control, more & more people coming into the country illegally, higher taxes, more spending for those who wouldn’t work in a pie factory. More dumming down in our schools, more stupidity in our foreign policies, in dealing with the mid-east, especially isis. We, the true Americans, have seen for the last seven yrs. what socialist/marxist/liberal/democrat/communism has done for the country. It is high time to remove this cancer from our society once & for all. Vote out this bunch of idiots.

      • autrypma

        The American people and voters do not need to have the same junk as they have endured just because they once voted for this criminal. Please do not put all American people in the same statement. Many, many voters do not believe in her, and even more voters and all Americans need to be informed about this woman…many DO NOT have internet, are not interested !!??? why??. The ones who DID vote her in really need a rude awakening, somehow. Also, remember the Democrats are still so desperate to get a new Democrat president that they will go to any lengths to get her in…EVEN MORE IMPORTANT, don’t forget if she is finally really exposed, Obama, Biden and many, many more will get the ax, because they are also traitors…

        • hpinnc

          Thanks autrypma, some good points, well taken.

    • Mike O’Mara

      She was just trying to prove to the democrats that she could lie, cheat, steal and misdirect constituents well enough to lead the socialist democrat party. This had the added benefit of bringing in rhino followers who value and respect these skills nearly as highly as socialist democrats. The French had it right, after their revolution they traveled around the country cutting off the heads of royalty and politicians. Many lawyers were included as well. It seems to me to be the perfect solution. Especially if we are smart enough to not replace them. If we found a cure for cancer would we rush to find a replacement for it? I think not.
