State Department papers catch Clinton in lie
A new release of State Department documents to government watchdog Judicial Watch bring new information about Hillary Clinton’s role in the deadly attack on the US consulate in Benghazi. Judicial Watch, which forced the State Department to release the papers through the Freedom of Information Act, says the documents actually reveal two scandals, “The first is Hillary Clinton telling different stories to different foreign leaders about the Benghazi attack – including an admission that it was a terrorist attack. The second is the State Department’s cover-up of these documents.” Let us remember that Clinton and the White House had stated that an anti-Islam film had caused a spontaneous attack on the compound. A blatant lie.
Judicial Watch reports that the documents confirm that on September 12, 2012, Clinton informed Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Kandil that the attack “had nothing to do with the film.” Judicial Watch reports that Clinton issued an official State Department press statement, approved by the White House, placing the blame for the attack on an Internet video: She said, “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”
Judicial Watch reveals that on September 12, Clinton told Kandil, “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack – not a protest.” Kandil responded, “You’re not kidding. Based on the information we saw today we believe that group that claimed responsibility for this is affiliated with al-Qaeda.” Two days later, at the ceremony when the bodies of the four Americans who were killed arrived in the US, Clinton again left the implication that it was all due to the video: “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video that we had nothing to do with.”
It was only after State Department officials leaked to the public that the White House story was a fabrication that Clinton admitted “that information has changed…that’s not surprising. That always happens.” When pressed for more information at a Congressional hearing, Clinton responded: “What difference at this point does it make?” A Congressional report from five House committees said that Clinton and the White House “perpetuated a deliberately misleading and incomplete narrative…” In other words, they lied. 2 Timothy 3:13 says, “But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.” That Clinton is not in jail, but instead running for the highest political office in the land is a travesty.
