In the above video Hillary opines that it doesn’t matter why we have four dead American citizens in Benghazi , we here at YouViewed beg to differ . It makes all the difference in the world that the lives of four US government employees were left dangling in the wind while their “bosses” back home in the comfort of their residences tried to figure the best way to keep this malfeasance from impacting the re-election hopes of one cowardly b***ard as he jetted off to the next fund raiser .
Senator Johnson asked the perfect question ” Why didn’t someone pick up the phone and ask the survivors if there was an angry mob protesting ” ? That certainly could have spared Susan Rice the ignominious task of lying repeatedly on the Sunday morning talk shows , not to mention railroading an innocent movie maker into prison in order to hide government incompetence .
Of course the reason that Hillary wouldn’t answer is because she and her boss knew the truth all along and were making their decisions based on political expediency … whatever wouldn’t damage “the One’s” electability .

” Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton shot back Wednesday at senators in defending the Obama administration’s initial characterization of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, as having begun as a protest against an anti-Islam YouTube video.
“Was it because of a protest, or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?” Mrs. Clinton said, raising her voice in response to tough questioning by Sen. Ron Johnson, Wisconsin Republican.
Mr. Johnson, a newly added member to the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, had asked why the Obama administration had not been able to ascertain what had happened by simply asking officials who had been in Benghazi on the night of the attack.
He asked why Susan E. Rice, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, appeared on news talk shows five days after the attack to assert that the assault emerged from spontaneous protests against the video that had swept across the region on Sept. 11. ”
In closing we get to witness Hillary at her Oscar winning finest . The quake in the voice , the almost tears , the deep regret of having to comfort the families of Christopher Stevens , Sean Smith , Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods as their ” flag-draped coffins ” were rolled off the plane in Dover . She should tear up and she should have cried as those four deaths were directly attributable to her and that cretinous fraud in the oval office .
” Fox News follows up on Eli Lake’s report yesterday:
U.S. intelligence officials knew within 24 hours of the assault on the U.S. Consulate in Libya that it was a terrorist attack and suspected Al Qaeda-tied elements were involved, sources told Fox News — though it took the administration a week to acknowledge it.
The account conflicts with claims on the Sunday after the attack by U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice that the administration believed the strike was a “spontaneous” event triggered by protests in Egypt over an anti-Islam film.”
“Begun Under the Previous Administration”
“Asked about the Fast and Furious
program at the Univision forum on
Thursday, President Obama falsely
claimed that the program began
under President George W. Bush.
“I think it’s important for us to
understand that the Fast and
Furious program was a field-
initiated program begun under the
previous administration,” the
president said. “When Eric Holder
found out about it, he discontinued
Fast & Furious Update
“The Republican senator leading the inquest into Fast & Furious said he has a mixed reaction to the Sept. 19 Justice Department Inspector General report on the operation that day.
“Operation Fast and Furious was the height of irresponsibility on the part of a number of people from the ATF Phoenix field office all the way up to the Justice Department headquarters,” said Charles E. “Chuck” Grassley (R.-Iowa), who with Rep. Darrell E. Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is trying to piece together the facts as to what really happened inside the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms and Explosives program that facilitated the flow of illegally purchased firearms into the hands of Mexican crime organizations.
The 512-page report, “A Review of ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious and Related Matters,” contains many details of the internal machinations of the rise and fall of gun walking scandal, yet many of the passages and footnotes are redacted.”

Reason has an update on the police killing of Andrew Scott by the Lake City Sheriffs Department and it does nothing to make the police look any better. Quite the contrary
“The fatal shooting of Andrew Scott by Lake County, Florida police provoked a flurry of outrage on the Internet and in Scott’s own neighborhood. The anger is because Scott died in his own doorway, because he was not the suspect for whom police were searching; nor did police identify themselves when they came to his door.
As I noted last week, Scott answered the door while holding his gun at 1:30 a.m. on July 15.According to WFTV 9, deputies saw the muzzle of the gun and nothing else (implying that Scott did not open his door very wide) and quickly, without identifying himself, K-9 Deputy Richard Sylvester shot and killed Scott. His girlfriend was present in the apartment and was heard screaming. After an hour and a half, deputies realized they had shot the wrong man. They were actually searching for suspect Jonathan Brown, whom they had trailed to Scott’s apartment complex. Turns out hisapartment was next door.”
This is Obama’s idea of transparency .
” “We just learned that ATF senior management placed two of the main whistleblowers who have
testified before Congress about Fast and Furious under the supervision of someone who vowed
to retaliate against them,” they wrote before describing how senior political figures have made dangerous threats before. ”
What an open and honest administration we have .
” Thomasson also allegedly said that: “All these whistleblowers have axes to grind. ATF needs to f—k these guys.” ”
Yes , by all means , let’s crush the few men of integrity within the Justice Dept . Can’t have a few honest individuals sullying the reputations of the many .
Michael Walsh on ” Why Fast & Furious Matters ”
” Pssst — heard the one about the lethal scandal that reaches to the upper levels of the Obama
administration and may turn out to be bigger than Watergate? A crime in which two American agents have been killed, and which the Justice
Department has been furiously trying to cover up for more than 18 months?
If you answered “no,” you’re not alone. The mainstream media have largely ignored the lethal — and most likely deliberate — “gunwalking” operation known as Fast and Furious. The plan, as ridiculous as it sounds, was to knowingly sell weapons to Mexican drug cartels, in hopes of tracing the guns. Of course, our government lost track of them. “
Brian Terry’s Parents Speak Out
“There’s something they don’t want us to know. And there’s something they are hiding… You get to a point that you want to throw the TV out the window because of their constant lies.”
This whole affair raises serious questions beyond the obvious dealt with in this article . For one thing , how could anyone in this administration imagine that it is a good thing to keep Holder on ? By now it should be obvious to all that with the election fast approaching and with the scandal that is “Fast & Furious” not likely to fade away anytime soon , the sooner Holder steps down the easier it will be for the Obama cartel to batten down the hatches and undertake some damage control
Dragging this out , with the very strong possibility of the investigation coming to fruition in the next few months , would seem to guarantee ample negative publicity at the most inopportune moment .What might they have up their sleeve ? Could the Obama team be this dense or is there some grand scheme of which Eric Holder is a necessary part ?
“Attorney General Eric Holder again today would not answer who the highest-ranking Obama administration official was that had knowledge of Operation Fast and Furious and the gunwalking tactics it employed before Border Patrol agent Brian Terry was murdered.
Instead, when House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith pressed him directly during a House Judiciary Committee hearing Thursday, Holder dodged giving a response.”
Are we seeing cracks in Holder’s stonewall ?
“The Department of Justice told Republican House leadership in a Tuesday letter that it hopes to reach an agreement with congressional overseers on how much information about Operation Fast and Furious it is required to hand over.
Congressional Republicans have threatened to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for not fully complying with a 22-part subpoena served last October.
The letter comes amid reports that House oversight committee chairman Rep. Darrell Issa has obtained evidence proving that senior Justice Department officials approved Operation Fast and Furious gunwalking tactics “
This whole business just reeks . To think that our alleged “independent” press is willing to turn a blind on hundreds of government enabled homicides in order to prop up a single politician shames them all and renders their contribution to the public discourse null and void .
Thank goodness for the internet and some stalwart bloggers .And a few politicians of integrity .
Christian Adams At PJmedia
“As Rep. Darrell Issa struggles to obtain Fast and Furious documents from Eric Holder’s Justice Department, so does PJ Media. We made a Freedom of Information request of the DOJ regarding the curious collaboration about Fast and Furious between the Office of Public Affairs (OPA) and the Press Harpy Tracy Schmaler with various leftist blogs. (Hint: George Soros pays their salaries.)”
Another police shooting , another round of obsfuscation
“Seth Adams was shot to death by a police officer on his way home last Wednesday night. As usual, police officials say the officer was “forced” to shoot the unarmed 24-year-old. Here’s how thePalm Beach Post described the encounter, from the police point of view:
“As Seth Adams drove his truck home to Loxahatchee Groves from a bar Wednesday night, he saw a man in a car parked in the lot of his family’s business. He lowered his window. The man did the same.”
“Bradshaw helpfully added: “There’s only two witnesses here: the suspect and the deputy. And the suspect was not able to be interviewed. Why he decided to assault the deputy? We may never know that.” “
