Hillary: House GOP is “playing politics” on the backs of dead #Benghazi Americans

Hillary Clinton testifies on Benghazi

HIllary Clinton testifies on Benghazi. – January 2013

Just in case you thought possible 2016 presidential contender La Clinton was going to maintain a moderate tone on the issue that is turning into her defining moment as Sec. of State, her upcoming book makes it clear she most definitely will not:

“I will not be a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans,” read an excerpt from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s book which deals with the response to the Benghazi attack. In that excerpt from the book Hard Choicesreleased exclusively to Politico, Clinton attacked Republicans for playing politics with the investigation into the attack .

“It’s just plain wrong, and it’s unworthy of our great country,” Clinton said of what she called the “political slugfest” that the investigation has become. “Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.”

While Clinton took responsibility for the attack and its aftermath, she scolded the press for propagating a “regrettable amount of misinformation, speculation, and flat-out deceit.”

She added that there is no reason for the continued investigation. “Many of these same people are a broken record about unanswered question,” Clinton wrote. “But there is a difference between unanswered questions and unlistened to answers.”

There’s also a huge difference between candid, truthful answers and dishonest political spin, ma’am.  But …. I know, what difference at this point does it make, right?  The families of the victims, and the American people, deserve the truth about what happened to the four murdered Americans and the administration’s disastrous response to it.  But apparently Mrs. Clinton believes that when it comes to Congressional investigations and oversight, you should simply take the statements of her and her former State Department team … and the administration … at face value, because they just tried to do “what’s in your best interest.”  I don’t think so.

I suspect Fox News’ Bret Baier and Greta Van Susteren will ask her about this in their upcoming interview with her in mid-June.  Hope so, anyway.

    Yep. And, with their “regrettable amount of misinformation, speculation, and flat-out deceit”, she and the administration are now in the process of being held to a standard only favored by jackass congresscritters when something amiss happens to a Republican administration.

    The difference in this case, though, is that one side is trying to dig out answers she and her tin god want buried forever, the other side sent an innocent man to prison for exercising his First Amendment right.

    Not so fast, Shrillary. Who is riding the backs of dead Americans again? Notice:

    “transference (n.)–The process in and by which an individual’s feelings, thoughts, and wishes shift from one person to another; especially, this process in psychoanalysis with the analyst made the object of the shift.”–The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language

    Nice try, but it won’t work.

    As for “misinformation, speculation, and flat-out deceit”, who cooked up that phony baloney about an anti-muslim video, the producer of which is the only one prosecuted for the Benghazi murders?

    But I’ll make sure to politicize those dead Americans in a chapter of my new book.

    the reaction of the democrat party and the democrat party-media complex to the events post the attack at benghazi prove that watergate was nothing more then a partisan political witch hunt.
