|Hillary is exceedingly popular, highly intelligent, and a sure winner in 2016. Think Rand, there must be some way to smear her!|
The secretary of state’s responsibility is to protect our diplomats. Mrs. Clinton should have been relieved of her post for denying pleas for additional security. Almost 20 years ago, President Clinton’s secretary of defense was relieved of his post for a similarly bad decision.
In early October 1993, a battle between U.S. forces and Somali militia in Mogadishu left 18 Americans soldiers dead, 80 wounded and two American helicopters shot down. Today, this is remembered as the Battle of Mogadishu or more popularly, “Black Hawk Down,” thanks to a subsequent movie of the same name.
A month earlier in September, then-Chairman of the Joints Chief of Staff Colin L. Powell requested soldiers, tanks and armor-plated vehicles to reinforce the mission in Somalia. Secretary of Defense Les Aspin denied these requests. The Associated Press reported the following on Oct. 8, 1993, just days after the Battle of Mogadishu: “Defense Secretary Les Aspin today brushed aside calls for his resignation as ‘the politics of Capitol Hill,’ but conceded that in light of recent casualties, he shouldn’t have rejected a request to send more armor and troops to Somalia last month.”
Two months later, after less than a year of service, Aspin resigned as secretary of defense.
I'm sorry, is roadkill head REALLY comparing the death of four Americans killed in a surprise attack while the ambassador was trying to keep a low profile to the destruction to two Black Hawk helicopters, 18 dead soldiers, and 80 wounded servicemen in one of the bloodiest, and most well known, conflicts of the Clinton era?
Yep he sure is, and using that comparison in an attempt to remove his biggest challenger should he decide to run for President in 2016.
Here is more of his attempt to smear his future President.
Aspin resigned over Black Hawk Down. The same precedent should have applied apply to Mrs. Clinton. To date, no one has ultimately taken responsibility for Benghazi.
My office is currently seeking out the witnesses and survivors of Benghazi to testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. To date, the Obama administration has refused to let them testify.
Too many questions remain unanswered. Now, there are too many new questions. The evidence we had in January already suggested that Mrs. Clinton ignored repeated requests for more security in Benghazi. The new evidence we have today — and that continues to mount — suggests that at the very least, Mrs. Clinton should never hold high office again.
"Mrs. Clinton should never hold high office again." Is that said with the same over inflated sense of authority in which he also stated that if HE were President he would have relieved Hillary of her post?
Because NOBODY took that seriously either!
Clearly this bandy legged little pipsqueak seems to think that his Flea Market toupee and undeserved arrogance gives him some right to tell his betters what they should or should not do,
But what I see is cowardly little douchebag that would like to win the presidency, after his lunatic father tried and failed to do so for years, and realizes that if he somehow manages to win the GOP primary that he will then suffer a humiliating defeat at the hands of a woman in front of his misogynist base of Teabaggers.
He is obviously panic stricken at the very idea of facing off against Hillary and is hoping against hope that this Benghazi thing will do for him that which he lacks the balls to do for himself.
Update: It looks like Karl Rove believes he smells blood in the water as well.
