Hillary Clinton Takes Shot At Trump, Knocks Herself Out

Can you say Benghazi?

On Thursday, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton attacked President Trump after Trump did not initially reject an offer from Vladimir Putin that Russia be allowed to “question officials, including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence service of the United States.”

When White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was asked about whether Trump supported the idea, she responded, “The president’s going to meet with his team and we’ll let you know when we have an announcement on that.”

In response, Clinton tweeted an attack on Trump that reeked of hypocrisy

As is well known by now, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State when the attack was launched in Benghazi on September 11, 2012. As Greg Hicks, former Deputy Chief of Mission for Libya, noted of the failure of the State Department four years later:

The Benghazi Committee’s report graphically illustrates the magnitude of her failure. It states that during August 2012, the State Department reduced the number of U.S. security personnel assigned to the Embassy in Tripoli from 34 (1.5 security officers per diplomat) to 6 (1 security officer per 4.5 diplomats), despite a rapidly deteriorating security situation in both Tripoli and Benghazi. Thus, according to the Report, “there were no surplus security agents” to travel to Benghazi with Amb. Stevens “without leaving the Embassy in Tripoli at severe risk.”

Had Ambassador Stevens’ July 2012 request for 13 additional American security personnel (either military or State Department) been approved rather than rejected by Clinton appointee Under Secretary of State for Management Pat Kennedy, they would have traveled to Benghazi with the ambassador, and the Sept. 11 attack might have been thwarted.

Even the State Department’s own Accountability Review Board report wrote:

The number of Bureau of Diplomatic Security (DS) security staff in Benghazi on the day of the attack and in the months and weeks leading up to it was inadequate, despite repeated requests from Special Mission Benghazi and Embassy Tripoli for additional staffing. Board members found a pervasive realization among personnel who served in Benghazi that the Special Mission was not a high priority for Washington when it came to security-related requests, especially those relating to staffing. The insufficient Special Mission security platform was at variance with the appropriate Overseas Security Policy Board (OSPB) standards with respect to perimeter and interior security. Benghazi was also severely under-resourced with regard to certain needed security equipment, although DS funded and installed in 2012 a number of physical security upgrades.”

    Again? This was in yesterday’s online ‘sends’. No – she still didn’t ‘knock herself out’ and you still need to get back to the many and serious issues with trump. You are only fooling the deluded true believers when you pretend that Hillary, Obama, Flake, McCain and other intelligent and independent-thinking patriots are “the problem”. Grow up and develop some ethics!

    Someone should be held responsible for the killing of those in Benghazi, shocking way to govern and those people feel they have the right to advise and condemn president Trump

    Speaking of ethics, let’s contemplate the lies that accompanied the Benghazi travesty, and that being the VIDEO!!! LOL The “video”!!! Hillary, Obama, and Valerie (a lovely, honest, patriotic bunch) made up the “video” nonsense and spread it everywhere. What idiots!

    Listening to Hillary Clinton speak of patriotism and standing up for America is akin to listening to Jeffrey Dahmer discuss cuisine and fine dining.

    The only reason people like Mary E. get upset that this is brought up again is because they have no idea what the truth really is. Hilary RAN, did not walk from the White House after this happened, fainting being ill. The only reason why she did that in my humble opinion is because she didn’t want to be asked the hard questions. The why of deserting people that she should have saved. I feel that she hid out because she knew she would never be President, if she was going to be in the news every day answering the HARD questions of why, she would NEVER have been able to run for office. She is a coward, but feels she has the right to defame this President. Don’t get me wrong, there are many moments that I wish he would not Tweet, but what about all the good he’s trying to do and we never hear about any of it, only the media’s CONSTANT negative. Enough is enough people, gather together and let us be a GREAT America.
