Hillary Clinton and Susan Rice Honored for “Leadership and Progress” as Benghazi Hearing Confirms Lies
Thursday, May 9, 2013
For anyone who was paying attention, yesterday was an important day. No, I’m not talking about the Arias trial (which certain networks covered all day without any mention of other, apparently more trivial news), or even Kim Kardashian’s latest appearance as a floral couch/sausage hybrid.
On Wednesday, May 8, we heard the testimony of three whistleblowers regarding the attack of our embassy in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012, and there were some pretty eye-opening moments. As expected, both former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and United States Ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice were discussed in the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing, and what we heard was hardly flattering.
Gregory Hicks, a foreign service officer and former deputy chief of mission in Libya, gave testimony on the events of the night of September 11, as well as what transpired following the attack. In his initial description of that attack, Hicks stated “the Secretary of State Clinton called me along with her senior staff were all on the phone, and she asked me what was going on. And, I briefed her on developments.”
