Benghazi-gate: Obama-Biden versus Clinton-Clinton

During a Congressional hearing on Benghazi on 10/10/2012, it was told that security at the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi was “inappropriately low” per Eric Nordstrom—the top regional security officer in Libya earlier this year. He also said “…all of us at the post were in sync that we wanted these resources…” referring to the request to extend the extra security force that was denied by the State department. At the same hearing, Lt. Col. Andrew Wood said: “We felt great frustration that those requests were ignored or just never met.”

Blame one of their own

No love lost between Clinton and Obama

No love lost between Clinton and Obama

A day afterward, during the VP debate, millions of Americas heard Joe Biden claiming “We weren’t told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security again…”

At the same debate they also heard Joe Biden vowing “…I always say what I mean…”

By now, no American should be surprised that Obama-Biden team is best at blaming and not accepting their responsibilities and failures.

Obama and Biden have been blaming everyone from former President Bush for the economy that they inherited although the Bush recession officially ended in June 2009. And even after Obama-Biden dumped hundreds of billions in bail-out money, the so-called Obama recovery has never occurred—and it’s still Bush’s faults. In addition to Bush, Obama and Biden have also blamed Republicans in Congress for blocking what they wanted to do for economy and jobs although during Obama’s first 2 years the Democrats controlled both houses of Congress and no one could stop them from passing any bill they wanted—for example, ObamaCare was passed with no Republican votes.

But, there might have been a few on the left who were surprised at Biden’s statement during the VP debate on Oct-11—but the most disappointed one must be Bill Clinton. After all that he did in front of national TV audience in his speech at the DNC with lies about the economy Obama inherited was worse than anyone could have anticipated in 2009 in justifying for 4 more years of Obama-Biden to fire up democrat voters. How could they do this to the Clintons?

Blame Congress—of course

“…The congressman here cut embassy security in his budget by $300 million below what we asked for…” Joe Biden also managed to throw blame at Paul Ryan’s Congress budget.

This is totally inaccurate. Paul Ryan and Congress set a cut of 19% for non-discretionary spending in 2014 budget. Democrats and Biden used that percentage to figure out $300 million cut. But this $300 million are not for security only. It also includes other cuts such as maintenance, administrative personnel, construction, etc.

In addition, among the embassy security cuts, the Obama administration (and the State Department) should be competent enough to cut security at places like Canada, New Zealand more than the troubled regions like the Middle East and Africa, for examples. Or are they too incompetent?

Four Americans—including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens—were killed by the incompetency of the Obama administration.

Obama-Biden versus Clinton-Clinton

On Friday 10/12, a day after the VP debate, Ed Klein reported that Bill Clinton had been working to form a legal team to work out a contingency scenario for Hillary Clinton in preparing for the Obama-Biden’s blame on Hillary for Benghazi—i.e. the Clintons have been working on a plan to prevent Benghazi becoming a stain on Hillary’s resume for 2016 presidential run.

Will Obama-Biden use Hillary Clinton as scapegoat in the Libya attacks? Biden who may also run against Hillary Clinton in 2016 for the Democrat presidential nomination has already done so by hinting he and Obama were not aware of the US Consulate’s request for additional security.

Will Hillary Clinton’s State department “leak” some information that will show Biden lied—and the White House knew about the request?

The next actions from each side will of course depend on how bigger this Benghazi-gate becomes.

You can be sure that Romney-Ryan will not let this go away quietly with the next presidential debate coming up on 10/16/2012.

  1. Hillary has been spening her State Department budget on gay cultural events with “lady gaga” touring abroad spreading our support for queers. She also helped buy VOLT cars for embassy staffs around the world and promoting our GREEN nonsense. Why worry about a security detail for the Libya ambassador. We only blew up the country without consulting congress and killed most of the police and military so renegade tribal bands now run the streets in Libya. Obama killed Osama, so we didn’t need any marine forces to protect our ambassador, until ambassador got killed. It seems this Lamb lady was very powerful. She turned down security requests and that was it? What Obama doesn’t know is what he doesn’t want to know.

    • What Obama doesn’t know is what he doesn’t want to know or what he does not want to admit knowing.
      Thanks for your comment.

  2. On 10/15, Hillary Clinton said she would take full responsibility for Benghazi.
    I guess she decided to take one for the “team”.
    The administration still failed by trying to blame the attack and the death of 4
    Americans on a anti-Muslim video instead of admitting the truth that terrorism
    was behind it. Obama wanted the public to believe he won the terrorism war
    with the death of Bin Laden (thanks to a lead developed in the Bush administration
    by the Bush torture that Obama vowed to discontinue in 2009).
