Kerry On Benghazi: Blame Congress, Not Just State Dept.

The chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee _ and possibly the next secretary of state _ says mistakes were made at the State Department in the deadly Sept. 11 assault in Libya, but Congress shares some of the blame.

Sen. John Kerry spoke at the start of Thursday's hearings. He says an independent probe pulls no punches about the lack of security at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.

U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died in the attack.

THIS IS A BREAKING NEWS UPDATE. Check back soon for further information. AP's earlier story is below.

Lawmakers want to know why security was "grossly inadequate" at the U.S. diplomatic mission in Libya when militants stormed the facility on Sept. 11, killing the ambassador and three other Americans, and why the military failed to respond faster during the nine-hour assault.

Members of the Senate and House foreign affairs committees on Thursday were to question Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, who is in charge of policy, and Deputy Secretary of State Thomas Nides, who is in charge of management, at back-to-back congressional hearings.

I blame obummer. 

BLAME BUSH,   BLAME BUSH,    BLAME BUSH

    There is no bigger a--h--e in Washington , Massachusetts , or Connecticut .  Nor a worse jiggalo .

 

As the old saying goes, "How do you know when a Democrat is lying?"  

Answer:  Their lips are moving.

Kerry makes me ill......The blame belongs at the top...Obama

THE  BUCK STOPS AT OBAMA!

Congress? Is this man for real?

Blame someone else. Blame someone else.

Four good men have died in vain.

Is he blaming himself, Senator John Kerry, a Congressman?   

My question is, Did Congress know what what was going on?  Or was this one of those sneaky, Constitution skirting antics of Oblamea that caused this to happen?

Congress? Was any member of Congress present at the live feed of Ambassador Steven's brutal murder? 

Kerrry is a coward and is full of treason to the USA. All you have to do is look at his real war record and it matchs Jane Fonda when she was working for anyone but America... And Scarry Kerry hasnt changed...

The same can be said for alot of democrat politicians. When they are'nt in office when a conflict or war is happening, they will critisize, oppose and try to bring about defeat or failure. Example: George Bush goes to war in Iraq to try to establish democracy in that area of the world so that terrorism is'nt the only way for those folks to express themselves and to uncover the weapons of mass destruction that Hussein had but probably sent to Syria (50 tons of yellow cake uranium was sent to Canada after the war, they use it for nuclear power. Iran is trying to get yellow cake uranium for a nuclear bomb). Oboma attempts to establish democracy in Yemen, Libya, Egypt and now Syria and it's fine. If he and the people of Yemen, Libya, Egypt and Syria succeed in establishing democracy they can thank George Bush, our outstanding military and the desire of the Iraqi people.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Bill and Hillary Clinton Brutally
Mocked After Defending

View image on Twitter

Crooked Bill and Hillary Clinton were brutally mocked Monday after defending the Clinton Foundation on social media.

The Clinton Foundation’s official Twitter account tweeted Saturday, “ICYMI: President @BillClinton wrote on Facebook this week about our work improving lives in the United States and around the world, from fighting climate change to combating the opioid crisis.”

Former President Bill Clinton’s Facebook post served to correct the record about so called fake news smearing the Clinton Foundation. Naturally, he linked to far left sites such as Snopes and Politifact to debunk the smears.

After touting all the charity the Clinton Foundation brings to hurricane victims, farmers in East Africa and combating Climate Change, Bill Clinton unleashed on Breitbart News for spreading conspiracy theories and false information about the Foundation.

Nevertheless, spreading false information about the Foundation continues, apparently as part of an ongoing strategy to distract attention from real problems and, over the long run, to completely erase the line between fact and fiction.

For example, just a few weeks ago on MSNBC, during a discussion of the President’s disparaging remarks about Haiti, his designated defender repeated the ridiculous assertion that I had taken money raised for Haiti for personal use and was responsible for the apparent suicide of a Haitian who knew all about it. Thankfully, the host cut her off, refusing to provide a forum for known false conspiracy theories. I’m proud of the work the Foundation and I have done in Haiti and will give you a more detailed report on that soon.

These attacks on the Foundation began in earnest with the 2015 publication of the Breitbart-inspired book, Clinton Cash. I thought the Foundation staff did a good job debunking the book’s charges, but they were published as written even in “mainstream” outlets, and even now the charges continue to be repeated online and in forums favorable to those who make them.

I have never responded personally to these charges, but out of respect for our donors, partners, and those who work at the Foundation, I think I should—because as we see, attacks, no matter how outrageous, can have a long life.

Bill Clinton also argued Chelsea’s wedding wasn’t paid for by Clinton Foundation donations nor do any of them receive salaries.

No, Foundation funds were not used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc. It was a wonderful day that Hillary and I were grateful to be able to pay for.

Clinton also argued the foundation was given 4 out 4 stars from Charity Navigator, Platinum from GuideStar, A from Charity Watch, and a 20 out of 20 score for meeting all of the Better Business Bureau’s good practice standards.

Hillary Clinton tweeted: Want to hear the real story of the @ClintonFdn? Read this: 

 Trump supporters savaged the Clintons.

How about when Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Oman donated MILLIONS to your foundation when you were Secretary of State and then you conducted official US business with them? 

What about how Haitian villages that you raised money for are STILL without the homes, schools and infrastructure you promised for them? Where did it go Hillary? Where's that money? Why did you plunder the great people of Haiti? 

  

Unless it explains

Benghazi 33,000 missing emails  Haiti  Destroyed electronics  Missing money
Uranium One Etc

Then no. Nope.  
Not on Presidents day.  

Care to tell us how much the Foundation pays out in salaries each year? 

 

Slush fund? Pay-to-play? Salaries for Sid Blumenthal?
Fraud in Haiti?  The vast majority of funds don't reach people in need?
That's the real story, right?
