White House: Clinton’s 'Signature' on Benghazi Docs Doesn't Mean She Knew of Them

(CNSNews.com) – The White House dismissed the signature of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on documents ignoring security concerns in Benghazi, calling it “protocol” for government official “signatures” to appear on documents they did not sign.

“It is standard protocol that cables originating from the department in Washington go out under the authority of the current Secretary of State with their signature, i.e. their name, typed at the bottom,” White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday, using his fingers for quote marks when he said “signature.” He continued. “This practice has been in place throughout this administration and across prior administrations, both Democratic and Republican.”

A report by five House committees released Tuesday found that Senior State Department officials, including Clinton, approved reductions in security at the facilities in Benghazi, Libya. The report cites an April 19, 2012, cable bearing Clinton's signature acknowledging a March 28, 2012, request from then-U.S. Ambassador to Libya Gene Cretz for more security, yet allowing further reductions.

obtw. If am declared the last of the mohicans. So be it. My tea party only exist  too expand freedom. Take the reign from the elected."Whom we know r Idiot the thieves n tng. 

If anyone can send out documents with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's signature on it why do we need a Secretary of State, evidently Secretary of State is just a figure head. Who are the real people who make these decisions for her? Same goes for Fast & Furious who are these people who make these decisions for DOJ head eric holder why pay him if the decisions are made by some unknown person. It's a waste of tax payers money to pay him for doing nothing but suing states for trying to make voting more legitimate by having a photo ID to vote. Same for the potus if all he is going to do is campaign for more money what do we need him for he doesn't seem to know about anything that's going on in his regime is he just there to cover up mistakes for his democratic regime? Below is a link to a cover up lie by barack hussein obama,

The "signature" as Carney referred to means that if someone else were to sign off on the cable using Clinton's name, that person had the delegated authority to do that. BUT, it also means that that authority and more importantly, the responsibility still remains with Clinton - a delegated authority is NOT a method for leaders to hide so as to keep their 'hands clean', and if you delegate YOUR authority it means also that you fully trust that other person to act in your behalf-

How f**king stupid do they think we are?

I can't take it any longer!!!

They ALL have to go!!! Period!  NOW!!!

ALERT ALERT

 President Trump Threatens To Close Southern Border 

President Trump issued a blunt warning to Mexico and other Central American nations over their failure to stop illegal migrants and criminal cartels targeting the U.S. southern border, saying he would send the military and shut down the southern border. Trump made his threat in tweet storm Thursday morning in which he said the newly negotiated trade deal with Mexico would take second place to border security.

Over 4,000 migrants are now reported to be in the caravan headed to the U.S.

A horde of thousands migrants from Honduras and other Central American countries on an organized to the U.S. are approaching the Mexican border. Mexico is reportedly sending federal police to stop them.

Over 16,000 illegal alien migrant family units were arrested at the southern border in September.

“I am watching the Democrat Party led (because they want Open Borders and existing weak laws) assault on our country by Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, whose leaders are doing little to stop this large flow of people, INCLUDING MANY CRIMINALS, from entering Mexico to U.S…..

….In addition to stopping all payments to these countries, which seem to have almost no control over their population, I must, in the strongest of terms, ask Mexico to stop this onslaught – and if unable to do so I will call up the U.S. Military and CLOSE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!..

….The assault on our country at our Southern Border, including the Criminal elements and DRUGS pouring in, is far more important to me, as President, than Trade or the USMCA. Hopefully Mexico will stop this onslaught at their Northern Border. All Democrats fault for weak laws!”
