Charles Krauthammer just dropped another Benghazi bombshell, claiming that the president made a phone call to Hillary Clinton so that they could develop a ‘cover story’ right before Clinton made her 10 o’clock statement.
This is while 2 victims were still alive!
Question: What is the military’s punishment for letting Americans die so you can save your ass?
On Tuesday Night Charles Krauthammer dropped another Benghazi bombshell on The O’Reilly Factor. He claims that the President’s phone call to Hillary Clinton was made so that they could develop their “cover story” shortly before she released this statement at approximately 10 PM:
I condemn in the strongest terms the attack on our mission in Benghazi today. As we work to secure our personnel and facilities, we have confirmed that one of our State Department officers was killed. We are heartbroken by this terrible loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and those who have suffered in this attack.
This evening, I called Libyan President Magariaf to coordinate additional support to protect Americans in Libya. President Magariaf expressed his condemnation and condolences and pledged his government’s full cooperation.
Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.
In light of the events of today, the United States government is working with partner countries around the world to protect our personnel, our missions, and American citizens worldwide.
The first confirmed death would have been Sean Smith whose body was found some six hours before this statement was issued. It is Charles Krauthammer’s contention that at least two of the victims were still alive when Clinton’s statement was released and also during the President’s call to Clinton.
It should also be noted that roughly four hours before Clinton issued her statement there was an email sent to the White House. Factcheck.org reports:
6:07 p.m.: The State Department’s Operations Center sends an email to the White House, Pentagon, FBI and other government agencies that said Ansar al-Sharia has claimed credit for the attack on its Facebook and Twitter accounts. (The existence of the email was not disclosed until Reuters reported it on Oct. 24.)
Krauthammer’s reasoning is solid. Government officials were already aware at this point that Al Qaeda linked terrorists were claiming credit for the attack. Obama and Clinton likely had to get their story straight before Clinton released her statement.
Krauthammer is not the only one questioning this phone call. AIM’s Andrew McCarthy reported on May 22nd:
“What would you be focusing on in the Benghazi investigation?” I spent many years in the investigation biz, so it’s only natural that I’ve been asked that question a lot lately.
I had the good fortune to be trained in Rudy Giuliani’s U.S. attorney’s office in Manhattan. Rudy famously made his mark by making law enforcement reflect what common sense knew: Enterprises take their cues from the top. Criminal enterprises are no different: The capos do not carry out the policy of the button-men – it’s the other way around.
So if I were investigating Benghazi, I’d be homing in on that 10 p.m. phone call. That’s the one between President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton – the one that’s gotten close to zero attention.
Benghazi is not a scandal because of Ambassador Susan Rice, State Department spokesperson Victoria Nuland, and “talking points.” The scandal is about Rice and Nuland’s principals, and about what the talking points were intended to accomplish. Benghazi is about derelictions of duty by President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton before and during the massacre of our ambassador and three other American officials, as well as Obama and Clinton’s fraud on the public afterward.
In another stunning turn of events, WND’s Aaron Klein broke a huge story on Wednesday that uncovered a non-reported Library of Congress document from August 2012:
A Library of Congress report that received almost no media attention detailed – one month before the deadly Sept. 11 attack in Benghazi – how al-Qaida established a major base of operations in Libya in the aftermath of the U.S.-NATO campaign that deposed Muammar Gadhafi and his secular regime.
The report documented al-Qaida and affiliated organizations were establishing terrorist training camps and pushing Taliban-style Islamic law in Libya while the new, Western-backed Libyan government incorporated jihadists into its militias.
The document named Benghazi as a new central headquarters for al-Qaida activities.
