Shouting Louder


Recommended Posts

shouting-louder-n1499778Town Hall:

An old-time trial lawyer once said, "When your case is weak, shout louder!"

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton shouted louder when asked about the Obama administration's story last fall that the September 11th attack on the U.S. ambassador's quarters in Benghazi was due to an anti-Islamic video that someone in the United States had put on the Internet, and thereby provoked a protest that escalated into violence.

She shouted: "We had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?"

Students of propaganda may admire the skill with which she misdirected people's attention. But those of us who are still old-fashioned enough to think that the truth matters cannot applaud her success.

Let's go back to square one.

After the attack on the American ambassador's quarters in Benghazi that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans, the Obama administration immediately blamed it on the anti-Islamic video.Scissors-32x32.png

She also maintained that they had no real-time information and had to rely on waiting for poor quality video from a couple of hovering drones. Video that took time to process. In this era of Satphones and Twitter, with satellite imagery that can read the initials on Obama's golf balls, we're supposed to believe that their intelligence wasn't any better than that available in WW-II?


And what about the twenty-some survivors? Are they in a gulag somewhere?


This whole exercise is so in-your-face arrogance by this administration. She was essentially saying, "We don't have to tell you anything. We gave you all the story you're going to get. Now move on."

They (D AND R) let her get away with answering NOTHING. She has had a multiple of failures in her tenure as SOS and gotten away with answering for not having to answer for any of it and gets praise heaped on her to boot. You expected this from the Democrats, but some of the Republicans joined.
