Issa Says Hillary’s Testimony Contradicts Evidence

Rep. Darrell Issa:

The secretary of state was just wrong. She said she did not participate in this, and yet only a few months before the attack, she outright denied security in her signature in a cable in April, 2012. … The thing that our report shows and our continued investigation shows is, they had a policy of normalization-appearance. They did everything they could to look like they’d won the war and had the peace, and so the policy that you saw in that April cable is the policy that led to the ambassador being exposed and killed. It led to the absence of a plan in what is basically a war zone. … None of it’s been disputed. Bless the Democrats’ hearts, they like their report, but they can’t find a factual error to ours, and as we go into more documents — ones that we want to have given to us, not just allowed to look at — we’re going to find more of these kinds of mistakes that need to be corrected.

I have said for months now that there are two wrongs here – the fuck-up and the cover-up. Hillary was involved up to her eyebrows in both. Bad policy and bad lies.

I must admit I am conflicted because I still a fan of Bill and Hillary. But we have to hold our friends to the same standards we hold our foes. This could be a sad ending to an otherwise great career.

    I need to mow the lawn so I can water this evening but the SF Giants are tied with the D-Backs 1-1 in the 8th.

      Take pity on your neighbors. Mow tomorrow. Or the day after, in case you forget.

    • insanelysane says:

      Get rid of the lawn. Plant a Pomegranate bush. Add some English lavender plants in lovely rows and add few Indian paint brush plants as accents and you will save all the back breaking work and get some fruit and a nice fragrance wafting over you are you watch the neighbors mowing.
      After established, needs very little water.

    The cover-up is always the worst part. If she made a mistake to have the appearance of normalization, that would be a reason (we could have a discussion about whether it was a smart reason or not), but at least it would be a position to take and debate (then, no cover up)… but covering up that reason looks like you know it was a bad decision/reason, so you don’t want to debate it, you’d rather deflect it.

    I’m very saddened over this – it means someone I duly respect really has a less-than-honorable side…. makes you wonder what else is not honorable.

    Horrible really.

      “Uncle Rusia”, of #BostonBombers fame, got it right. Get out in front of bad news fast. If Hil had said “I may have goofed…..” at the beginning it would be a non-story todsy and she’d be a viable 2016 candidate. As it is….

    • Mary says:

      Apparently the “new” information Izza et al are talking about is coming from new whistleblowers within the State Department.

      Imagine how saddened they are that they thought Hillary was one thing before Benghazi, but found out otherwise afterward, and were helpless to say otherwise as she testified and the administration manipulated the media.

      It is their whistleblowing—her own State Department employees—that is revealing this new stuff. The video story wasn’t put forth by the administration to protect intelligence mistakes; it was put forward to protect upper level mistakes at the State Department. It was the upper State Dept that asked for the talking points to be altered—not the intelligence community or the defense dept.

      Sad, sad, sad.

    Meanwhile, over at the Oversight Committee:

    Air Traffic Controllers are important to national safety, Obamacare minions are not.

    Iirc, Libya was Hillary’s war – she was the one who went and convinced NATO to get in. I think that might be why she covered up.
    I’ve lost trust in her in any case.

    I don’t believe any of them, including Issa. I don’t trust that we are getting “real” information that is not being used for political purposes either way, so basically I have no idea what happened. That’s the sad state of affairs these days.

      It’s a major street in Boston so I could see it if the local stations made a big deal over it, but why does someone on the west coast need to know or care?

    how do you deal with this? Have all Christians and Jews and other religions not do business with them?

  13. HELENK says:

    this is a must read. tell me again about that peaceful religion

    can you imagine a few dr gosnells with this kind of power?

      Makes sense. Texas is merely trying to slow down the rush of old guys moving from California.

  15. yttik22 says:

    Hillary’s role in the Benghazi case is settled for me. She participated in bad policy and followed orders. Then she attempted to help sweep it under the rug to cover for her boss and her political party. I don’t think there’s anything inherently evil or wrong about that. It’s politics. She did serve the President and she does believe in the Dem collective. The problem is, I don’t support either.

    • Constance says:

      Well she was supposed to be serving the American citizens. The country doesn’t belong to the Democrat party it belongs to citizens. I hate both parties they are just power seeking game players and Hillary fits right in.
