The Last Clinton Lie Makes a Difference

The Republicans were worse. They made speeches and crowded so many implied or stated questions into them, giving Hillary such a wide range of subject matter that it was duck soup for her to ramble on, taking up time, without ever even responding to any of those questions much less providing any answers. Even John McCain’s rant that is being replayed so often to support the notion that Hillary was on the hot seat was absolutely useless. Nobody cares, within the forum of this hearing, what Senator McCain thinks. We wanted to know what Hillary knew, when did she know it, how she came to know it and who told her.

Unless you preceded the questions with a good dose of Sodium Pentothal, and hooked her up a a heavy duty Black and Decker Lie Detector, you would never get the truth.

14. Did you request credible evidence?
15. Wouldn’t you agree that relying on someone else’s unsupported speculation is itself engaging in unsupported speculation?
16. How many times do you now know Ambassador Stephens reported that there was trouble brewing and ask for assistance?
17. For each one:
a. How did he communicate this information?
b. What documents are available for that?
c. To whom did he communicate?
d. How far up the State Department organization did this information go?
e. What documents are available for that?

Get the idea now boneheads?

Here is my idea of how the questioning should have gone:
1. Secretary Clinton when did you first become informed that there was a situation at the embassy in Benghazi?
2. Where were you at that time?
3. What were you told?
4. Who told you
5. By what means was this information conveyed?
6. What documentation is available regarding that?
7. When did you first encounter the idea that it was an unorganized mob responding to that video?
8. Where were you at that time?
9. What were you told?
10. Who told you?
11. By what means was this information conveyed?
12. What documentation is available regarding that?
13. You have stated that you did not want to engage in unsupported speculation. What credible evidence did they provide to support that idea

Let’s roll the tape:

"With all due respect, the fact is 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? It is our job to figure out what happened and to do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again, senator."

It was a dazzling play, instantly destined to enter the lore of political hardball and be studied and dissected for decades.
