It looks like Madame Secretary of State Clinton will not be compelled to tell the American people what she knows about what happened in Benghazi on September 11.
“Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who skipped an overseas trip this past week because of a stomach virus, sustained a concussion after fainting, the State Department said Saturday,” the Associated Press reports today.
It looks like she’ll get a free pass:
The Senate Foreign Relations Committee said it won’t hear from Clinton as planned at a Thursday morning hearing into the Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador. She also was scheduled to testify that afternoon before the House Foreign Affairs Committee.
Clinton’s aides on Saturday informed the Senate committee chairman, Sen. John Kerry, about her health, and the Massachusetts Democrat “insisted that given her condition, she could not and should not appear” as planned, said Kerry spokeswoman Jodi Seth. Senior department officials are expected to testify instead.
Expect nothing less than softball pitches from Mr. Skull and Bones Kerry. It is said he will replace the matriarch of the Democrats as Secretary of State during Obama’s second term.
Even Fox News thinks there’s something fishy about an arms transfer that went down at the time of ambassador Stevens’ death.
“A mysterious Libyan ship — reportedly carrying weapons and bound for Syrian rebels — may have some link to the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi,” Fox News reported on October 25.
On the night of Sept. 11, in what would become his last known public meeting, Stevens met with the Turkish Consul General Ali Sait Akin, and escorted him out of the consulate front gate one hour before the assault began at approximately 9:35 p.m. local time.
Although what was discussed at the meeting is not public, a source told Fox News that Stevens was in Benghazi to negotiate a weapons transfer, an effort to get SA-7 missiles out of the hands of Libya-based extremists. And although the negotiation said to have taken place may have had nothing to do with the attack on the consulate later that night or the Libyan mystery ship, it could explain why Stevens was traveling in such a volatile region on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.
“In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way,” said FDR.
According to the official explanation published by the establishment’s premier propaganda tool, the New York Times, the Obama administration was “worried about the consequences of its hidden hand in helping arm Libyan militants,” in other words al-Qaeda. Following NATO’s violent overthrow of Gaddafi and the murder of 30,000 Libyans, al-Qaeda received a large cache of weapons, including surface-to-air missiles.
Stevens was working with the CIA under State Department “diplomatic cover” and overseeing the transfer of these weapons from al-Qaeda in Libya to al-Qaeda in Syria when he was killed.
“The U.S. effort in Benghazi was at its heart a CIA operation,” officials briefed on intelligence told the Wall Street Journal.
CIA Director David Petraeus’ sexual dalliance with his publisher surfaced as details of the operation began to bubble to the surface. He subsequently “stayed away in an effort to conceal the agency’s role in collecting intelligence and providing security,” the WSJ reported, according to Business Insider.
The existence of al-Qaeda and its role in the contrived war on terror and the “Arab Spring” reshuffling of the geopolitical deck in the Middle East are also at the heart of CIA operations.
Hillary Clinton will be allowed to avoid tough questions on the Benghazi operation. In January, John Kerry will be rewarded for his service and will move to the State Department.
The establishment has plans for Hillary in 2016 and the blood stain of Benghazi must not mar her record as an elder stateswoman.
