It Matters To The Dead Men's Families, Hillary
Testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee January 23, Hillary’s performance was predictable. After suffering with a tummy ache, an alleged fall, and alleged blood clots caused by the alleged fall – she appeared before the Committee filled with spit and vinegar.
Her theatrics were expected (at least by me), but what wasn’t expected by me was her recalcitrant comments about the murders of Ambassador Christopher Stevens, Tyrone Woods, Sean Smith, and Glen Doherty in Benghazi.
Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), asked her: “Madam Secretary, do you disagree with me that a simple phone call to (the diplomatic personnel) to determine what happened would have ascertained immediately that there was no protest?”
Her response was as revealing as it was combative and arrogant. Clinton angrily snapped back at Johnson: “ We had four dead Americans…What difference, at this point, does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, Senator.”
That was quite a cavalier comment coming from someone who had allowed lie upon lie to be told in the aftermath of the murders.
What does it matter, indeed. Perhaps she should have posited that question to the parents, families, friends, and loved ones of those four murdered Americans. Does Clinton believe that the family and friends those murdered Americans left behind think it doesn’t matter? Does she think our military personnel feel as cavalier as she does? Does she even care?
Does it matter to her that the lothario she married has such disrespect for women?
Does it matter to her that had her husband accepted President of Sudan, Bashir’s offer to arrest, detain and hand over bin Laden to the United States? (SEE: Jethro’s Ghost; 10/21/03) Had her husband who was President at that time done his job there would have been no 9/11 and it is not unreasonable to believe the level of mayhem perpetrated by Al Qaeda around the world since that time would have never taken place.
But following in the footsteps of her husband, Hillary openly shows not just disrespect but complete disregard for the lives of our military.
Clinton not only showed her defiance to the Committee, but she also left no doubt pursuant to her contempt for Americans in uniform.
It was an open secret that during the years of her husband’s presidency she was rude and insulting to the military personnel assigned to her husband.
It’s easy to understand why Hillary is the bitter harridan she has become. At the dawn of what was to become her career she became involved with a serial philanderer who has no respect for law, propriety and/or women.
Hillary the radical feminist whose theism dictated that men were only needed for sperm donations not only became involved with a man who represented everything feminists condemned, but she became the very thing feminists accuse stay-at-home mothers and conservative women of being, i.e., dependent on men for their advancement.
As Hillary looks back in the mirror, of her life she sees embarrassment, abandonment, and, worst of all, she realizes that she has had to swallow her pride time after time as the pernicious lecher she married was accused philandering and sexual assaults.
But, the frustration and public embarrassment that her life became was not caused by our military. Ergo, it would behoove her as an American, if not because of her position as Secretary of State, if she would remember that and treat them with respect.
Why Stevens, Smith, Woods, and Doherty were murdered does matter. It matters to those they left behind and it matters to patriotic Americans. They made a decision to serve their country and that decision to serve resulted with them being murdered. And their murders deserve more than lies, subterfuge, obfuscation, and hostile blather from her and Obama.
Hillary saying her job is to see that it doesn’t happen again is specious and purposefully misleading. You cannot ensure something doesn’t happen again without knowing what caused it the first time. Hillary doesn’t want to address the causal factors of why Stevens, Smith, Doherty, and Woods were murdered – because to do so would mean Obama would have to answer the question of why he permitted them to be murdered as he reportedly watched the live feed of their murders from drones recording the attack.
