Hillary Strikes Back: Attaches U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to Obama White House Propaganda Messaging…

The Clinton’s are clearly on a divergent path than President Obama.   Hillary just Judo’d Obama in this informative article posted in the UK Daily Mail.

In this report Secretary Clinton separates U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice from her State Department, and instead says that Rice was selling the message, and following orders, from the White House, not from the State Department.   President Obama made Susan Rice (UN Ambassador)  a cabinet level position – not part of State Dept.

Hillary goes on to say that THEY (State Department) NEVER felt it was a video movie that caused the Benghazi attack:

The State Department’s insistence it never bought the story – expressed by the White House and Susan Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations – that a crude anti-Islam film made in California triggered the attack gives ammunition against Obama both to the Romney campaign and congressional Republicans.

State Department sources have said that Clinton has never forgotten that Rice, who served in her husband Bill’s administration, was an early supporter of Obama. Rice has ambitions to take over from Clinton if  Obama is re-elected but the Benghazi debacle could scupper her chances.

In a briefing on Tuesday, State Department officials said ‘others’ in the executive branch concluded initially that the attack was part of a protest against the film, which ridiculed the Prophet Muhammad. That was never the State Department’s conclusion, reporters were told.   (read more)

What Hillary will have to answer for now is why “she”, as an individual, was repeating the storyline -up to and including Pakistani commercials- about a U-Tube video.   Which is an informational error because yes, Hillary denounced the video for it’s disrespect to Islam but NEVER said it was the genesis of a protest or the attack on the consulate in Benghazi or justified the death of four Americans including the US Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens.

@SheriefSfarid We’ve never heard of this movie, what is it?—
US Embassy Cairo (@USEmbassyCairo) September 09, 2012


The article   also lists the blow-by-blow account of what actually took place in Benghazi.  It is a must read:

It appears the report of the supportive CIA report is BOGUS, yet it was spread in various news sources as factual support for the White House assertion by Susan Rice.  Remember, with Obama  he changed the status of UN Ambassador to “Cabinet Level“;  Meaning SUSAN RICE Reports TO OBAMA NOT HILLARY.

Follow Closely!

The White House sent Susan Rice out to sell a story of a video/movie.   To support the assertion a bogus AP report was formulated saying that CIA intelligence apparatus had provided the same information.   But it doesn’t exist.

To the contrary the entire intelligence apparatus, sans OUR MAN CLAPPER, has said there was no intelligence even alluding to a movie, a protest, or an impetus of a movie spurred protest in either Cairo (at the embassy) or Benghazi (at the consulate).

On Friday September 28th James Clapper provided the White House with cover and plausible deniability when he said:

WASHINGTON DC – Extremists from groups linked to al Qaida struck the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, in a “deliberate and organized terrorist attack,” the top U.S. intelligence agency said Friday, as it took responsibility for the Obama administration’s initial claims that the deadly assault grew from a spontaneous protest against an anti-Islam video.

The unusual statement from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence appeared to have two goals: updating the public on the latest findings of the investigation into the assault, and SHIELDING the WHITE HOUSE from a POLITICAL BACKLASH OVER its ORIGINAL ACCOUNTS.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence, which coordinates and sets policies for the 16 other U.S. intelligence agencies, is led by retired Air Force Lt. Gen. James Clapper, who was appointed by President Barack Obama in August 2010.   (link)


So the WHITE HOUSE  trotted out Susan Rice to SELL a FALSE STORY, unbeknownst to Hillary Clinton, who was then told to toe-the-line and WAIT..   To provide elbow room, and cover for the White House, a bogus AP report mentioning the CIA was seeded to, and picked up by, the press thereby providing enough space and time to coordinate with James Clapper, so that he could arrange a bogus intelligence mistake story to back them up.

All of this before the “discovery” of U.S. officials on the ground in Libya asking for more security help.   Which, unfortunately for the White House, became a bigger story than the FALSE “movie” explanation.

The failure to provide the requested security creates the White House back in a position of blaming the State Dept.   The same State Dept who was providing cover for the false “movie” explanation.

Hence the ping-pong ball back and forth.

While Hillary might have been willing to STAND SILENT for the White House movie story’s “EXPLANATION”  by the WH under the guise of faulty intelligence, which she did diligently, she ain’t gonna take being thrown under the bus for the lack of security protection.

Hillary was SMART waiting until the  “movie” fiasco would be DEBUNKED.   But now that the narrative, and attention, has switched to the PERSONAL SECURITY ISSUE of FOUR AMERICANS,  she isn’t about to TAKE the BLAME for something she was NEVER part of to BEGIN with.

So who were these “Senior Administration Officials” who spoke to CNN on 9/13 and placed the blame on the U-tube video ? Find that out, and we will have a better understanding of “why” they felt it necessary to create a false story.

…… And someone needs to explain this contradictory excerpt from the Daily Mail story:

[…] A concurrent CIA memo obtained by The Associated Press cited intelligence suggesting the demonstrations in Benghazi ‘were spontaneously inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo’ and ‘evolved into a direct assault’ on the diplomatic posts by ‘extremists’. (link)

Oddly the USA Today picked up the same excerpt:

The AP reports Wednesday that a concurrent CIA memo obtained by the news agency cited intelligence suggesting the demonstrations in Benghazi “were spontaneously
inspired by the protests at the U.S. Embassy in Cairo” and “evolved into a direct assault” on the diplomatic posts by “extremists.”

But guess what? No article has an internal link to the AP report, AND when you try to confirm at AP…..



(or any version of one with a host of different search engine feeds and keywords)


“How did the jihadists know in advance, long enough to plan for the attack, that Stevens would be in Benghazi that night?”


“Fox News’ Catherine Herridge told Megyn Kelly that the night Ambassador Chris Stevens died, someone heard someone say “we got him,” meaning a successful assassination of Stevens.

One of the American diplomats killed Tuesday in a bloody attack on a Libyan Consulate told pals in an online gaming forum hours earlier that he’d seen suspicious people taking pictures outside his compound and wondered if he and his team might “die tonight.”

But hours before the bloody assault, Smith sent a message to Alex Gianturco, the director of “Goonswarm,” Smith’s online gaming team or “guild.”

“Assuming we don’t die tonight,” the message, which was first reported by Wired, read. “We saw one of our ‘police’ that guard the compound taking pictures.” Source

After Herridge’s report, I see that someone in the administration is already debunking it. Obama has everything to lose over this. He has made a major mistake by immediately blaming Americans FOR offending Muslims. It was known to be a lie early on, but he latched on anyway. US Ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, beclowns herself (again) read more here.

CHRIS WALLACE: Terrorist cells in Benghazi had carried out 5 attacks since April, including one at this same Consulate in June. Should US Security have been tighter at that Consulate, given the history of terrorist activity in Benghazi? SUSAN RICE: We obviously did have a strong security presence and unfortunately two of the FOUR Americans who died in Benghazi were there to provide security, but it obviously wasn’t sufficient in the circumstances to prevent the overrun of the Consulate. See the video here.

Memo to Ms. Rice: The “circumstances” were the anniversary of 9-11-01 on 9-11-12. It’s reasonable to ask why Sean Smith did not mention people gathering outside the compound jabbering about a movie. Online reports say in the past, while chatting in the online forum, he had typed “incoming” and disappeared for awhile, meaning they were being fired upon. Maybe there was no hint of what was to come. It seems more likely from latest reports that firepower came from two directions, fast and powerful, and we know now, inescapable.

Herridge said the consulate came under fire from two different locations and in two waves, with the attackers using rocket-propelled grenades and mortars. Source: Fox News Insider

Considering that Smith had indicated the Compound has been fired on in the past, how can we possibly think two Americans serving as security inside the compound could be sufficient, when the outside of the compound was “protected” by Libyans who abandoned the property under heavy fire.

Remember that NBC quoted the Libyan President in their own video, saying the film had nothing to do with the attack. The accompanying article that went along with the video eliminated the quote, and the President actually saying the words was eliminated it in the video, but it was clearly quoted at the very beginning of the video by the narrator. Slick and slimy media using public airways to “fundamentally transform America.”


Obama White House Sharpens Blade Upon The Neck Of Clinton State Department

A highly defensive and finger pointing David Axelrod pushed off claims President Obama knew the real story of the Benghazi Massacre before the president and his administration repeatedly told the American people and members of Congress otherwise. The question now appears to be who within the State Department will be given up as the sacrificial lamb – all in the effort to insulate Barack Obama himself from any and all responsibility for the deaths of four Americans – including the first U.S. ambassador to be killed since the Carter administration.

During on interview with Fox News this morning, Axelrod first further defined what Vice President Joe Biden said earlier this week when remarking “we didn’t know they wanted more security” – a reference to multiple requests by American Benghazi personnel asking for enhanced security measures to be implemented in the months and weeks prior to the Benghazi Massacre on September 11th. Those requests were either refused or ignored by the Obama administration. Regarding that point, David Axelrod made it clear the blame is to be placed upon the State Department and not the Obama White House itself:

“These were judgments that were made by security folks at the State Department.”

I await information from inside sources regarding the current relationship between the Clintons and Team Obama. Surely this relationship is far more divisive and untrusting than just a few weeks ago.

    October 15, 2012

    Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) today released the following statement on Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s comments this evening regarding the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on September 11, 2012:

    “We have just learned that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has claimed full responsibility for any failure to secure our people and our Consulate in Benghazi prior to the attack of September 11, 2012. This is a laudable gesture, especially when the White House is trying to avoid any responsibility whatsoever.

    “However, we must remember that the events of September 11 were preceded by an escalating pattern of attacks this year in Benghazi, including a bomb that was thrown into our Consulate in April, another explosive device that was detonated outside of our Consulate in June, and an assassination attempt on the British Ambassador. If the President was truly not aware of this rising threat level in Benghazi, then we have lost confidence in his national security team, whose responsibility it is to keep the President informed. But if the President was aware of these earlier attacks in Benghazi prior to the events of September 11, 2012, then he bears full responsibility for any security failures that occurred. The security of Americans serving our nation everywhere in the world is ultimately the job of the Commander-in-Chief. The buck stops there.

    “Furthermore, there is the separate issue of the insistence by members of the Administration, including the President himself, that the attack in Benghazi was the result of a spontaneous demonstration triggered by a hateful video, long after it had become clear that the real cause was a terrorist attack. The President also bears responsibility for this portrayal of the attack, and we continue to believe that the American people deserve to know why the Administration acted as it di

    This is one of Hillary’s weaknesses.. She doesn’t want to be thought of as a traitor or a turncoat.. Relegate it to misplaced pride.

    “but what she has done makes her appear to be to anyone who wonders about why something like embassy security got so botched when it should be a no-brainer. ”

    Of course- what she said is not an easy sell and once her staements are taken apart they are ridiculous. Just think how long Kadaffi was out of power and how much time she would have had to ensure there was tight security in Libya after he was deposed. It doesn’t even come close to answering the question.


    “Is Hillary a comrade in arms to Obama and those who support him in the upper echelon of the Democrat party?”

    If she fell for that pillow talk by Obama and cut her husband out of the equation, then she is dead meat. They will eat her alive and kick her to the curb. And if she thinks she is where she is under her own steam, then she is delusional. She is where she is because her husband possesses an umbrella of protection that no one would mess with her. If she thinks differently, then the only way to show her how misguided she is about her own strength and stature is to let her go and see what happens.

    Women will never be stronger than men. Thats a fact. because they will never let it happen. Thats a fact.. So, if she thinks she can handle a basket full of snakes all by herself, it’s never too late for her to learn. If she can get past her Pride and look to where she came from, her values to the Truth and helping America thrive, the things she has always instilled in her daughter.. compare and contrast what she has settled for, the limelight and the most corrupt government in the history of America… Is that really who Hillary is? It doesn’t work for us and it won’t work for her. She is not one of them and never will be. She has to take them down..before the election, if she expects to be America’s hero… for the Good, the Bad and the Ugly of it all.

  3. October 16, 2012 12:20 pm

    One would imagine this has come out of left field for Obama and i bet he messes it up royally tonight and ties himself in knots because there is no way in hell Benghazi is not going to come up in a question tonight now.

    No matter which road he chooses he gets tied up and gets deeper drawn into the mess. This could be a “Titanic” moment.

    If he says she is to blame and does not accept responsibility, he goes down in flames.

    If he accepts blame, then the lies of the last 5 weeks comes out in full flow and out in full force.

    No matter what Obama says tonight he really is in a bind and will have a tough time keeping track of his lies.

  4. October 16, 2012 12:21 pm

    The repercussion from Hillary’s actions are being felt like an earthquake in the Hillary supporter blogesphere. Hillary, you have embarrassed us… using the flimsy excuse you don’t want this to be a “gottcha moment” for Obama. Poor Him..

    When Obama has our people out of work permanently- depressed and suicidal because they can’t support their familes…. YOU’RE WORRIED Obama will feel your playing “gottcha” with him? Take off the rose colored glasses… and start thinking like an American again. You’ve taken on the complexion and vibe of foreign cultures and allowed yourself to be brainwashed in Obamanomics.

    Obama is destroying the country and the people who live here. We don’t care how it’s done but we cannot afford for him to be re-elected…

    Here is a glimpse of the mail coming in from people who were never Hillary supporters but who have supported YOU against him…in the Primary..

    “What the hell is wrong with your gal? Why would she fall on her sword for that lying weasel? I am so disappointed. I thought she would refuse to accept his bullshit plan for reelection. Maybe she knew people wouldn’t believe her…..

    He has stepped to new LOWS in back stabbing. ****Sorry she didn’t use her considerable power to slap him down this time.***** I did not LOVE her for President, but I did not TRUST him. Apparently that still holds.

    There you go- It’s not just me… I need a SoCo Manhattan… straight up….

    The thing is, Hillary must know she has only 3 weeks of shelflife of usefulness for Obama because he could and would sack her on Nov 7th morning if he won a 2nd term and pin it all on her and she must know that.

    I don’t know moononpluto… I smelled Axelrod all over this thing when she said “gottcha moment”.. It sounds like a brainwashing to me and filling Hillary’s head with ‘guilt’ if Obama goes down.. The fact is we don’t care what or who takes him down as long as he’s gone and Romney is IN…

    I’m not good at setting traps for people… All Hillary had to do is stay QUIET- Is that too much to ask? Letting other people do the damage to Obama et al… He needs to be out of office to pin this all on him..Otherwise he’s going to claim Presidential Immunity and the country will go down in flames…

    If Hillary is afraid of ‘a gottcha moment’…. the rage she feels from her supporters will melt the wings off her plane the heat coming to her will be so unbearable and unstoppable like none ever to anyone else.. Gottcha, my ass… She has just unleashed the power of woman against her, the power she thought was her touchstone.

    Of course he will- Hillary is and always has been a threat to Obama. Why she just prostituted herself for him, boggles the mind… I can just imagine the furor her husband is in.. and rightly so…

    What she has done has shamed him, her daughter and her entire family…She needs a good shake by the shoulders then told to SIT DOWN, SHUT UP and LISTEN!
    Can you put a genie back in the bottle. No, but if Hillary listens to reason, Bill will find a way..

  8. October 16, 2012 12:45 pm

    I really think Tell, Hillary knows she is done, she is finished and this is about the only way out with dignity because people only accept responsibility if there is worse to come.

    This is all making Obama look like a skirt hider.

    Telling him to man up gets in before Obama can try and do it tonight in the debate. Its a very potent attack if people think he is weak already, it make Mitt look the alpha male.

    I’m pretty sure Mitt has had various options and responses given to him today of how Obama may play this but if Hillary did pull a fast one on Obama, Obama may not have had long to put together a coherent response because Mitt is going to have quotes, facts and figures at his fingertips tonight. Hence Axelrod frothing.

    Even if he does accept responsibility, its too late and too weak and people will be saying, he’s only accepting it because he has been forced to by Clinton, this is like resigning after being caught with your fingers in the cookie jar. Also Mitt will attack on just what responsibility is shown, has anyone resigned, will be seeking Hillary’s resignation, will Obama resign himself for lying to the american people.

    Obama is in a bind. He’s been put between 2 guns and not knowing which trigger to pull.

  9. October 16, 2012 12:48 pm

    just a thought but could it be Hillary was anticipating Obama throwing her under the bus in the debate or tomorrow and got in there first…..?

    just a thought but could it be Hillary was anticipating Obama throwing her under the bus in the debate or tomorrow and got in there first…..?

    Had Hillary not been jovial and laughing this morning with the interviewer…To me there would be wiggle room.. I mean, after all, we’re talking about 4 Americans who were brutally assassinated in a foreign country we give billions of aide to every year. I can’t comprehend anyone being sincere and going to an interview like it’s a birthday party… even if the subject was changed to tonight’s debate…

  11. October 16, 2012 1:01 pm

    WSJ had Clinton’s admission since last Wed and sat on it……did Hillary have to force it out?

    CNN landed big news yesterday when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said she took responsibility for security at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. It turns out she told the same thing to The Wall Street Journal’s Monica Langley last Wednesday, but the paper didn’t run with it until last night.

    Michael Calderone flags:

    Clinton sat for an interview with the Journal last Wednesday and there was no embargo preventing the paper from publishing any part of it, a State Department spokesman told The Huffington Post.

    While the interview may have been conducted as part of an upcoming profile of Clinton, it’s common for news organizations to extract timely material for a news story. Given that Clinton gave this interview on the same day as a congressional hearing on security at the consulate — and as criticism over the administration’s response gets amplified on the campaign trail — it clearly had news value. Indeed, the Journal led Tuesday’s print edition with the comment.

    A Wall Street Journal spokeswoman declined to comment on the paper’s newsgathering.


    Did Hillary have to force admission out, did Obama minions at WSJ shut it down for Obama?

  12. October 16, 2012 1:07 pm

    I wonder if Hillary expected her admission to get out before the Veep debate but it was sat on by the WSJ and the Obama admin was informed of what Hillary was doing by Obama minions at the WSJ and that is why Biden chucked her under the bus in the Veep debate……that would explain everything.

  13. October 16, 2012 1:16 pm

    The way I feel right now… if she admits it’s her fault, then she needs to resign.
    From the scenario Bob Woodward described, BC was going to use it against Obama.

    If she made a foolish mistake and went against him, then she has stayed too long at the dance and needs time to go home and meditate to understand what she has done, not so much to herself and her family, but to the country, OUR country. Never mind Third World countries.. If in her mind she thinks she is keeping the Peace, then she is sadly mistaken. We would rather die fighting for ourselves, our freedom and our liberty and for what is right than equivocating for Peace on the horns of political expedience.

    She wrong- Dead wrong… on that count… she needs to go now… She has thrown our support and goodwill out the window with her delusions of grandeur afraid to upset Obama’s re-election chances…. If this all stands and Obama is re-elected, can she live with herself known as the enabler that helped Obama destroy America.

    Well, last Thursday was the debate.. she made the statement to the WSJ the day before. So, she was providing an excuse to back Biden’s claim the WH isn’t responsible for Security…

    It’s beginning to look to me that she is not even speaking to BC.. When he is her best friend and always looked out for her interests and his daughter’s. If this is a power play on her part thinking she doesn’t need him.. then she is so enamored with herself she can’t see the trees for the forest.. She has caught the narcissism bug and for her it is fatal to her career and Chelsea will suffer for it too-

    moon, tell,

    IMHO the POS knew quite a while ago HRC was going to fall on his sword.

    It is a set-up with the timing orchestrated by valjar and axeldouche.

    And HRC went along with it.

    Remember how many were wondering what happened to her, where she was, why it was so quiet? Well, they got her out of dodge so they could release her statement on the eve of the debate hopeful it will give the POS a boost.

    They are all shameless.

    I believe the POS is well prepared for tonight’s debate. It’s MR who has been caught unaware.

    I found it entirely inappropriate.

  17. October 16, 2012 1:56 pm

    Another thing, her use of the term “political gotcha’ moment” is similar to the NYT’s lame excuse for not covering the Benghazzi Hearings, saying they were politically motivated. I will look for that article.

    I firmly believe that obama will throw Hillary under the bus tonight over and over again. Doesn’t matter if he went fundraising when he should have been doing his job. He is going to express his disappointment in the State Department et al and try to flick off all responsibility.

    I just hope Romney doesn’t let him get away with it.

    Also, Tellurian, I just want to tell you that this latest article that you posted is one of your best! And this site is becoming the “Hillary Haven” that others have said they are but rarely if ever walk the talk.

    I looked on both threads for ABM90… he hasn’t appeared. I’m sure he is as heart broken as we are about this and must be pinching himself thinking he is in a dreamscape turned into a nightmare..

    Meanwhile I picked this up at Pink a video of Obama and his lofty words fitting the scenario we are in today… Of course, he can never look straight ahead into the camera/audience because there isn’t a teleprompter to read from … but ck out the date it was made..
