As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

  1. I am listening to statements. One major question….Why the love fest? For example: Casey (D-PA) opened his remarks with…”I wish we had time to list all of your achievements, Mdme Secretary. We don’t have time. I’ll list just a few….”. Some others before Casey also stated similar. This is not about St. Hill…this is about something much more serious. Hope it will not be dismissed after her appearance today.

    • It reminds me of one of my favorite movies, Quiz Show, when Charles Van Doren testifies before Congress and all the committee but one member fall into sycophantic praise and excuses. I’m not trying to be catty or mean, but I just don’t see any accomplishments here other than she is the Secretary of State who clocked in more flying hours than any other. You have to go all the way back to Jame Baker to find the best secretary of recent times.

    • Sickening. Its like a cop arresting a murder suspect on the street saying “Sir, would you like to take a ride in my police car, please?…..Yes, we can stop for coffee if you like, on me!……Are those nasty handcuffs too tight?…..” Why don’t they just say this is a sham and drop it?

  2. I am looking for her exact comment around 10:25: she got very angry and loudly said “It is less important today for why these four deaths occurred than….”but I didn’t hear the rest. Anyone else catch that?

  3. You know America is in trouble when you see the room full or drooling lapdogs
    falling all over themselves praising Clinton. They seem to have forgotten we
    have 4 dead Americans and rather than find out who screwed up they are just
    having a group orgy to praise Hillary. Well it’s repulsive.

    • It is Lizzy. And, in fact, she has been one of the worst SS ever. She came in with zero experience (like her boss) and it has shown. The Libya debacle will go down as one of the worst foreign policy mistakes in recent history!

      • Yes and they managed to blame Bush for the Iraq war. These aren’t
        even useful idiots they are just a bit shy of dereliction of duty and a bit
        too close to treasonous(I have a low bar) behavior.

        • Well, since Bush decided to invade Iraq, capture and hang Saddam Hussein, it is not surprising that people blame the Iraq war on him. He did start it, after all.

  4. So far,I haven’t gleamed anything new from this at all except that currently ,the House is holding up money to the State Department and that everyone loves Hillary. McCain asked the tough questions but rambled on so much it gave Hillary time to figure out the dodge and deflect and never answered anything. And where was the follow up? Bunch of BS as usual.

  5. She says an anonymous America is in “critical condition” as a result of the attack at Bengazi and no one asks “who?” or are there others who were wounded, but not hospitalized.

    All in all, a disappointment in MrsClinton and her supposed questioners.
    The Senators took this occasion to ramble, spout adoration for someone who might be the next President, and couldn’t pick the one question and demand one answer: why did you and MrObama tell the public that the attack was caused by the Muslim reaction to an obscure video when you knew that it was a lie?.

  6. Am surprised she didn;t have a “reset” button on the table beside her. The questioning as 80% crap, nothing new learned. The media will say she held up well and the mean republicans offended her.

    There should have been a laundry list of real questions to be asked by the committee and then they just start at #1 and go down the list. If they wanted to have a love fest, the start 30 min earlier and then off to the questioning.

    This is just sickening.

    btw Ron Johnson was the Rep from WI.

  7. The only thing missing from the Hillary bon voyage party was the champagne. Rush mentioned that her campaign debt was finally paid off – today! More reason to celebrate! Now she is all botoxed up and ready to go in 2016.

  8. Why were we there in Benghazi in the first place? Was it to secure Libyan weapons for use in Syria?! Were the CIA there to recruit Libyan non-secularists to fight the ‘holy’ jihad against Assad? Was there involvement of the Egyptian Brotherhood, how much coordination was there between the attacks in Cairo and Tunisia? What’s the policy or is there one in regards to the continuing spread of AQNA (Al Qaeda North Africa)? What is exactly going on in Yemen? These should be the questions these committees should be asking….

  9. The Battling Bastards of Benghazi

    We”re the Battling Bastards of Benghazi,
    no fame, no glory, no paparazzi.
    Just a fiery death in a blazing hell,
    defending the country we loved so well.
    It wasn’t our job, but we answered the call,
    fought to the consulate, and scaled the wall.
    We pulled twenty countrymen from the jaws of fate,
    led them to safety, and stood at the gate.
    We called for reinforcement, but it was denied,
    so we fought, ‘n we fought, ‘n we fought, ‘n we died.
    We gave our all for our Uncle Sam,
    and Obama didn’t give a damn.
    Just two dead SEALS, who carried the load,
    no thanks to us, we were bumps in his road.


  10. No wonder we can’t get to the bottom of this mess. The politicians on both sides use this to speak for 5 mins. How about just firing questions like a court of law?!! The Repblicans ask the questions in their disortations,but won’t shut up long enough for Hillary to answer!! This is maddening.

    • I agree. Questions were too long and not targeted. Hillary filibustered and obfuscated. Would be nice if we could clean house and operate differently, but I don’t see that happening.

  11. SecState Clinton lied in at least one point in her appearance today. When being questioned about the lack of Marine Security Guards in Libya, she stated that “Historically, Marine Guards only protect classifed material.” That is an utter falsehood. Look up “Marine Security Guard” in Wikipedia. While protection of Classified is their primary mission, their secondary mission is “to provide protection to U.S. Citizens, U.S. Government Property, and U.S. Diplomatic and Consular premises during exigent circumstances.” I have personal experience in this matter, having served as a Marine Security Guard at the American Embassy, Tel Aviv, Israel. On several occasions, I, and my fellow Marines, provided bodyguard services for the American Ambassador, Ambassadors at Large, and numerous other DOS personnel. We also provided the “outer perimeter” security for the U.S. Secret Service during Presidential visits to the State of Israel. As the SecState, and a (8 year) former First Lady, Hillary Clinton *knows* this. Her statement is a slap in the face to every Marine that has every stood watch at our Diplomatic Missions overseas. Many Marines have given up their lives while on Embassy Duty. What a vile, miserable, untruthful woman.

  12. All I can hear is Hillary ‘what difference does it make’. It would make a hell of a
    difference if it were your child or son or daughter. Callous and cold.

    • It matters because our government was lying to us re: a protest over a video. Anytime our elected representatives, appointees and/or bureaucrats, etc., lie, it matters!

      • I’ve been gone all day, but now it saddens me to read the comments here. Apparently, except for Rand Paul, all they did was kiss me lady’s hand. The only way we can get our country back is to elect many more Rand Pauls.

        • Julie, the platitudes from the Dems were astonishing. It was like a farewell party and they had no interest in grilling her. The Repubs were the only ones that provided any kind of interrogation.

  13. She too is passing the buck or kicking the can down the road. Why aren’t the survivors of this tragety part of this and asking some questions???
