Where Was Obama on Night of Benghazi Attacks?
“What difference does that make? Especially now! What’s the point? What difference does that make?” That’s what Hillary said when she was asked about all this. “What difference does it make?” Four people are dead! What difference it make now? The four people are dead. Don’t you understand? We are about protecting American lives. That’s what we do. That’s what I care about, Senator. We protect America. What difference does it make? By this time, they’re dead! What can anybody do?”
That was the way she approached it.
So Ted Cruz, “Between 9:42 p.m. Benghazi time when the first attack started and 5:15 a.m., that’s eight hours, essentially, when Mr. Doherty and Mr. Woods lost their lives, what conversations did either of you have with Secretary Clinton?” That’s the secretary of state who runs consulates, who runs embassies. “Uh, we didn’t have any conversations with secretary, uh, Clinton.” “And General Dempsey, is the same true for you?” Cruz asked, and Dempsey confirmed that it was. So what was Hillary doing to save lives?
Now, the Democrats did their best to change this hearing on Benghazi into a hearing about the impact of the sequester on the Pentagon. They did. They tried to shift the focus to the sequester, ’cause this did not go well. It could have been a lot worse for the regime, but it still didn’t go well. Obama said (paraphrasing), “Well, do what you gotta do,” and left. And not a word spoken for eight hours during all of this with Obama, and they never talked to Hillary at all during this thing. And General Dempsey, “I never got an order to send troops.” You know, which raises a question. One of the SEALs, I forget which one, forgive me for that, by the way, went over there. They had violated orders. They were told to stand down. That’s another thing about this, that consulate personnel were told to stand down.
