Is Hillary Clinton one of the most capable women of our time, or one of the most capable and completely self-interested women of our time?
Today Glenn Reynolds at Instapundit reports the Secretary now is probably unable to testify before congress because she has CANKER SORES!
Just when Mrs. Clinton had rehabilitated her debatable record in Washington and Arkansas for that matter, she returns to her old behaviors from White House days. Lies and deception.
She obviously holds the truth to the Benghazi murders. For many reasons, not the least of which is covering for the President of the United States, she continues to refuse to do her duty and testify before Congress.
John Boehner should call out the U.S. Marshals.
First Mrs. Clinton wasn’t available to testify when called by House committees investigating the Benghazi tragedy, because she would be “travelling.”
Then Mrs. Clinton wasn’t available because she fainted from the flu, hit her head, and experienced a concussion.
Now Hot Air reports that Secretary of State Clinton won’t be available to testify before Congress because she has bad canker sores? Or is she just waiting out the clock hoping that her term will run out?
From HOT AIR:
Clinton has pledged to remain in the job until Kerry is confirmed, which Obama said he was confident would happen “quickly.” The Senate is expected to take up Kerry’s nomination in early January, but multiple Republican senators have already said they won’t agree to a vote on Kerry’s nomination until Clinton testifies about the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi. Illness and a concussion has prevented Clinton from appearing thus far.
Clinton promised to appear before Congress at one point, but the State Department backpedaled from that position quickly after it became public. State then said that Clinton couldn’t testify until after Congress received the report from the Accountability Review Board’s investigation into Benghazi, which they hinted Congress might not see for another 90 days — or possibly never see in its entirety. They got the ARB report last week, at which point State announced the resignations of four officials who never actually resigned at all. Accountability!
So yes, there are plenty of questions to ask Hillary Clinton about the “systemic failures” and “leadership and management deficiencies” that arose under her command at State, now that Congress has seen the report. There are plenty of questions to ask Hillary Clinton about the surreal resignation dodge of the past week. Asking those questions requires her presence, however, and it’s becoming clear that Hillary has no intention of submitting herself to those lines of inquiry in public. She and State are trying to run out the clock and leave John Kerry in position to deal with the aftermath.
The Obama administration is hiding the truth on Benghazi. Secretary of State Clinton, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, Vice President Joe Biden, and President Obama are all complicit in a cover-up of the murders of four Americans. If top secret military or intelligence missions were at stake, they
should testify in closed session and EXPLAIN. But the facts are that these four top government leaders marched into an airplane hangar and received the dead, lied to the families of the dead about an Islamic video, and have continued to lie about the entire episode to all of America.
It may simply have been to protect the most important re-election of our time, and to insure that voters did not witness a perfect and dangerous example of Obama’s weakness as Commander-In-Chief.
Regardless of the motive, the administration is lying to us.
Where is the Free Press? Why is the media not holding the administration accountable as was always the case in Watergate, Iran/Contra, and every other White House scandal you can name?
