Hillary Clinton Asked To Inscribe “Hard Choices” To Ambassador Stevens "What difference does it make?"
06.19.2014 | Matt Fox
Jason Mattera caught up with Hillary Clinton at one of the DC stops on her book tour this week, and asked the former Secretary of State if she would mind signing a copy of Hard Choices… but with a twist. “If you could make it out to Christopher Stevens,” Mattera queried. “I think you knew him.”
Christopher Stevens, of course, was the U.S. ambassador to Libya who was murdered along with three other Americans on Clinton’s watch, when Jihadists attacked two U.S. outposts in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.
Hillary, surprised by the request, replied, “Yeah, I’m not gonna make it out to Chris Stevens.” Mattera followed-up with, “What difference does it make?” a reference to Clinton’s infamous 2013 Senate testimony before the Foreign Relations Committee.
As with all complex stories the valuable discoveries come with time.
This Brief has been updated to include newly spotlighted research on Syria and ISIL. Most importantly the previously unknown “Second Presidential Finding Memo” to the CIA in 2012 specifically directed to arm/aid ISIL in Syria. The new information from the month before the Benghazi attack explains the motive of the Turkish delegation toward Chris Stevens.
Grab a cup of coffee because it’s a long read with over 350 citations and reference source links for conformational material. We think you’ll get hooked and find 95% of your Benghazi questions answered. And if you can find a factual flaw I’ll buy the coffee.. SD
Bombshell Claim: Security Operators on the Ground in Benghazi Say They Were Told to ‘Stand Down’ — and That’s Not All
Sep. 4, 2014 9:35pm Oliver Darcy
Five security operators responsible for guarding the CIA station in Benghazi, Libya insist they were told to “stand down” the night of the deadly 2012 attacks, arguing the order prevented them from likely saving the life of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and others.
The claim is made in a new book titled “13 Hours: The Inside Account of What Really Happened in Benghazi.” Scheduled for release next week, it is the first public account of the deadly attacks from security personnel who were on the ground that night.
Benghazi Is the ‘Most Shocking’ Impeachable Offense by Obama, Former Federal Prosecutor Says
Sep. 9, 2014 10:00pm Fred Lucas
A proper understanding of “high crimes and misdemeanors” would make President Barack Obama’s lack of action to protect the Benghazi compound impeachable and removable, said former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy.
“The most shocking transgression by this president involves Benghazi, which is a profound dereliction of duty, even though it’s not an indictable offense,” McCarthy, author of “Faithless Execution: Building the Political Case for Obama’s Impeachment” told TheBlaze. “It’s simply a fact that the president does not have to be indictable in order to be removable.”
What? the GOP has still not called for a criminal probe? Why I'm shocked, just shocked I tell ya!
Ex-official claims Clinton allies scrubbed Benghazi documents in secret session
Published September 15, 2014, FoxNews.com
According to Chaffetz' account of his interview with Maxwell, as well as the Daily Signal report by Sharyl Attkisson, Maxwell said those scrubbing the documents were looking for information that would cast Clinton and senior leaders in a "bad light."
Chaffetz said such documents were said to be removed, so that Congress and the Accountability Review Board -- the board probing security lapses as well as the attack's aftermath -- would not see them.
‘Benghazi Alumni Group’ Now Wields ‘Diabolical’ Influence at K Street Firm, Witness Attorney Charges

In recent months, State Department whistleblowers have come forward with stories of harassment, demotions and politicized cover-ups. They fear their professional credibility will be forever tarnished by “twisted half-truths” conjured up by corrupt foreign service officials and say they are fearful that their families will also be targeted for scrutiny and financial penalties.
And that’s just what they’re willing to say when they aren’t hiding in fear of harsher retribution.
Family of former SEAL killed in Benghazi to sue State Dept., CIA for $2M
By Douglas Ernst - The Washington Times - Friday, September 19, 2014
The family of Glen Doherty, the former Navy SEAL killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, has filed a $2 million claim against the CIA and the State Department.
Barbara Doherty, the CIA contractor and former SEAL’s mother, filed a claim last week with the two government agencies for $1 million each. The family does not believe there was adequate security at the U.S. diplomatic outpost and a CIA annex when they were attacked Sept. 11, 2012.
The "three" men on Foxnews that were @ Benghazi confirmed what we already knew.The WH gave a stand down order.How over two years later they still claim no order to stand down was given.BOLD FACE LIARS!
House Report Says CIA Monitored Arms Shipments to Syria Agency role in covert gun-running operation left out
BY: Bill Gertz, November 26, 2014 5:00 am
The CIA was spying on arms shipments from Libya to Syrian rebels at the time of the 2012 attack on its Benghazi facility, according to the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.
But a controversial Committee report asserts the CIA did not make “unauthorized” arms shipments to the Syrian rebels, further confusing what the two dozen officers and contractors were doing at the Libyan port city.
Claiming the panel conducted a “comprehensive and exhaustive” probe of the attacks, the report concluded that the committee “found no evidence that the CIA conducted unauthorized activities in Benghazi and no evidence that the [intelligence community] shipped arms to Syria.”
Judicial Watch obtains 'smoking gun' Benghazi documents Clear evidence U.S. State Dept. peddled false story

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said the DSCC “clearly knew in real time that a full-fledged terrorist attack was taking place on September 11 at the U.S. compound in Benghazi, and the American people deserve to be told the truth.”
“We are now into the fourth year of a massive Obama administration cover-up,” Fitton said.
Documents Obtained by Judicial Watch Reveal Top Hillary Clinton Advisers Knew Immediately that Assault on Benghazi was Armed Attack
FEBRUARY 26, 2015
First “OpsAlert@State.gov” email at 4:07 PM on September 11, 2012, reports, “… diplomatic mission is under attack … 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well … Stevens in the compound safe haven”
Email at 6:06 PM September 11, 2012, states terrorist group, “Ansar al Sharia Claims Responsibility.”
(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch announced today that on February 11, 2015, it uncovered documents from the U.S. Department of State revealing that top aides for then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, including her then-chief of staff Cheryl Mills, knew from the outset that the Benghazi mission compound was under attack by armed assailants tied to a terrorist group. The documents were produced as a result of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State ((No. 1:14-cv-01511). The documents make no reference to a spontaneous demonstration or Internet video, except in an official statement issued by Hillary Clinton.
Judicial Watch lawsuit focused on Mrs. Clinton’s involvement in the Benghazi scandal:
LEAKED EVIDENCE: Sen. John McCain Involved In Major Islamic Conspiracy To Establish Islamic State
Recently revealed conversations between the Pentagon and the Gadhafi regime in 2011 show that then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was serving the Muslim Brotherhood by pushing a false narrative to justify the removal of Muammar Gadhafi, as Shoebat.com has reported. With the help of corroborating evidence, we're closer to proving that Republican Senator John McCain was likely just as invested in facilitating the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya as Hillary was. Before getting to the evidence that implicates McCain, let's work backward from the Benghazi attacks.
Declassified docs: Hillary aided rise of ISIS Confirm reports of U.S. arming Middle East jihadists
WND, Published: 28 Nay 2015, Jerome R. Corsi
NEW YORK – More than 100 pages of previously classified Department of Defense and Department of State documents implicate the Obama administration in a cover-up to obscure the role Hillary Clinton and the State Department played in the rise of ISIS.
The documents were obtained in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Washington watchdog Judicial Watch.
They confirm WND reporting over the past three years of evidence that U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was involved in shipping weapons from Benghazi to support the al-Qaida-affiliated militias fighting the Bashar al-Assad regime in Syria, effectively arming the Sunni jihadists who morphed into ISIS.

The United States supported the secret supply of weapons to Libyan rebels while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State according to federal court documents obtained by Fox News.
In a sworn declaration to the District Court of Arizona May 5th 2015, a career CIA officer David Manners said, "It was then, and remains now, my opinion that the United States did participate, directly or indirectly, in the supply of weapons to the Libyan Transitional National Council." The timing matters because in the Spring of 2011 the Libyan opposition was not formally recognized, and the direct supply of arms was not authorized. At that time, the CIA Director was David Petraeus. (DAVID MANNERS DOCUMENT HERE)

State Department asserts privilege against Benghazi committee
By Byron York, July 1, 2015 10:32 am
The State Department has informed the House Select Committee on Benghazi that it is withholding "a small number" of documents from investigators on the basis of "important executive branch institutional interests." The statement, made in a letter from Assistant Secretary of State Julia Frifield to committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy, amounts to a de facto claim of some form of executive branch privilege.
“Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence,” said President Calvin Coolidge, and Judicial Watch continues to prove it, much to Hillary Clinton’s consternation.
Judicial Watch now has information about an email directly tying Clinton, for the first time, to the now-debunked Benghazi talking points used by then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice to claim the attack was the result of a “spontaneous protest” gone awry.
Showing contempt for transparency, the Obama State Department is refusing to divulge the contents of the email.
Breaking on Fox: QRF (including a Delta unit) and Close Air Support denied to Benghazi forces more than three times, units were ORDERED not to respond to besieged consulate/safe-house forces.
CIA Operative supposedly was lasing targets from roof for a specter hit, and was repeatedly denied the fire mission.
The SEALs that were killed were ordered twice not to go to aid of consulate/safe-house.
Delta told to stand down.
No help came because the TOP didn't want the Ambassador to survive,he knew much about BHO giving weapons to ALCAEDA in Iraq now ISIS.The name change is like filing political bankruptcy then starting up under another name.There was nearly a shooting war between those that gave the stand down order and those that at first refused to stand down.

On the third anniversary of the Benghazi terrorist attack, emails reviewed by Fox News raise significant questions about US government support for the secret shipment of weapons to the Libyan opposition.
During the Spring of 2011, as the Obama administration ramped up efforts to topple the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi, a licensed American arms dealer, Marc Turi, his business partner formerly with the CIA, senior US military officials in Europe and Africa as well as a former staffer for republican Senator John McCain considered logistics for arming the rebels, according to the emails exclusively obtained by Fox Business and Fox News.
Turi is facing federal trial this December on two counts that he allegedly violated the arms export control act by making false statements. Turi denies the charges, and alleges there was a rogue weapons operation run with the knowledge of Mrs. Clinton's state department.
The rabbit hole goes even deeper... Its something we point out quite often; the collusion and symbiotic relationship between Politicians and the Media. Treachery from within.
What Was a Member of Clinton's 'Secret Spy Network' Doing While Working for CBS News?
4:10 PM, Sep 29, 2015, By MARK HEMINGWAY
CBS does not deny that Drumheller was working with the network, though a CBS spokesman would only say, "Tyler Drumheller was not involved in any way on the Benghazi story." CBS was also asked if the network understood he was helping Blumenthal prepare reports on Libya for Secretary of State Clinton at the same time he was working with the network. Additionally, THE WEEKLY STANDARD asked CBS to clarify if Drumheller otherwise involved in the network's coverage sensitive national security issues while he was also apparently working on Hillary Clinton's behalf. Finally, CBS News was asked if they had done any internal review to determine whether Drumheller had influenced coverage in a way that may have unfairly benefited Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration, since the public revelation of his conflict of interest. CBS did not clarify whether their statement that Drumheller was not involved "on the Benghazi story" referred specifically to the controversial Lara Logan report for 60 Minutes or CBS's coverage of the Benghazi generally. The network was given an opportunity to address these specific questions and actively declined to expand on their terse statement.
Emails show Clinton 'leadership, ownership' of U.S. policy in Libya
By Sarah Westwood, 9/30/15 5:16 PM
The latest of Hillary Clinton's emails released Wednesday afternoon by the State Department offer the first glimpse into how she and her aides handled the evolving situation in Libya.
Most of the 3,849 emails date back to 2011, when the security situation in Libya was deteriorating and Clinton was leading an international charge to intervene in the conflict. The documents shed new light on how forcefully Clinton fought for the U.S. to become involved in the civil war there, but long stretches of time without any mention of the conflict revives questions about whether she turned over everything related to the crisis.
Sources suggest the Benghazi attack was a bungled abduction attempt
November 15, 2012 10:32 AM MST
Admiral James Lyons suggests the Obama administration intentionally lessened the levels of security at the consulate compound in Benghazi in the weeks leading up to the attack. This plan should have worked to reduce the possibility of resistance as the Ansar al-Sharia terrorist organization captured Chris Stevens, the American Ambassador to Libya.
According to information obtained by Fox News, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, both former U.S. Navy Seals, ignored orders to "stand down" and fought vigorously for hours in their attempt to defend the compound from the impending attack.
Ultimately, these armed assaults on the U.S. Consulate and CIA annex claimed the life of four Americans--Ambassador Chris Stevens, former U.S. Navy Seals Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, and State Department information manager Sean Smith.
Intel expert: New docs confirm Hillary gun-running op
WND, Published: 21 Oct 2015
NEW YORK – As former Sectary of State Hillary Clinton prepares to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi, new documentary evidence of a secret State Department gun-running operation is adding fuel to the controversy over the Department of Justice prosecution of arms dealer Marc Turi.
A member of the independent Citizens Commission on Benghazi claims the publication Tuesday of new evidence that the State Department under Hillary Clinton’s leadership approved a California company to deliver arms to Libya with the goal of ousting Moammar Gadhafi exposes the hypocrisy of prosecuting Turi.
Turi believed he also had State Department approval for arranging a similar clandestine arms shipment to Libya in 2011.
Looking behind the curtain of lies and obfuscation the question needs to be asked: who benefited from the promotion of such a blatant falsehood? There were two politically ambitious beneficiaries: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Obama as he was facing an election in less than two months and Hillary as she was planning to run for president in less than four years. Neither, in their cold and calculating mindsets, wanted to shoulder any responsibility for the failure of the Libyan policy and a terror attack on an anniversary of September 11, 2001. Therefore the loss of four brave Americans was simply collateral damage to the ambitions of both.
But as is always the case when two or more people totally devoid of character and integrity cooperate in a mutually beneficial scheme to defraud or deceive others for personal gain, they have in their hands the ammunition and will to blackmail each other, if the need arises. The Clintons have amply proven over many years in the public eye their willingness to destroy and intimidate any actual or perceived adversary by any means possible. Barack Obama, a devout disciple of Saul Alinsky, also has no compunction when it comes to annihilating his perceived enemies.
State Dept Watch Logs Show Hillary, Obama MIA During Benghazi Attack
Jim Hanson, Nov 09, 2015
Hillary Clinton failed to provide proper security to the US Consular facility in Benghazi, Libya before the attack on Sept. 11, 2012 and she failed to secure any rescue operations for the four Americans who eventually died there. Recently released watch logs from the State Department operations center show she made no official inquiries from 10:30 p.m. that night through 7:15 a.m. the following morning. That is a long time to be missing when a U.S. diplomatic facility is under attack.
Why was no rescue effort mounted? That is the question that has been driving good people crazy since this happened. Every American manning a post anywhere on this entire planet has a right to believe the cavalry will ride to their rescue, or at least be launched toward them. That didn’t happen in this case and the blame lies with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama directly. The horrifying thing is official government records show no involvement from either one after an initial consultation.
The political fallout from the 2012 terrorist attacks on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, has had a chilling effect on the Foreign Service that has left U.S. diplomats wary of treading into areas with questionable security.
Multiple former diplomats and other knowledgeable sources say security precautions in the Foreign Service have intensified since Benghazi, with officials in Washington fearful of another disaster abroad.
Former diplomats say the heightened security has become excessive and warn that American leadership is suffering as a result.
“It undermines the ability of our diplomats to do our job when you essentially have a governor in place that restricts their every movement and the decision process of the security because nobody wants anything to happen,” said James Smith, who served as ambassador to Saudi Arabia until 2013 and is now president of the consulting firm C&M International.
“There’s a lot of officer pushback on this,” added another source with knowledge of the State Department and the Foreign Service. “I don’t think there’s anything more frustrating for a member of the Foreign Service than to be out there, deployed abroad, and unable to do any good.”
The State Department has repeatedly argued that the tight security has not led to a loss of U.S. clout, but diplomats paint a different picture.
In a just America, Obama and hillary should be tried, convicted, and swinging from a light pole...
Judicial Watch Releases ‘Compelling Benghazi Email’ It Says ‘Worsens the Scandal of Benghazi’
Dec. 8, 2015 7:22pm Oliver Darcy
A conservative government watchdog group released a new Benghazi email Tuesday that then-Department of Defense Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash sent to the State Department offering military forces that could have moved into the area.
Bash sent his email — obtained by Judicial Watch through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit — to three senior State Department officials just hours after the deadly 2012 attacks initially unfolded.
[W]e have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi,” he wrote. “They are spinning up as we speak.”
