Hillary Clinton Testifies That Ambassador Stevens “Joked About Security”

During afternoon testimony, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) asked Clinton about an email dated Dec. 15, 2011 in which Stevens asked an official about security at the Benghazi compound, and whether the State Department had decided to close it.

Clinton responded: “Well, Congresswoman, one of the great attributes that Chris Stevens had was a really good sense of humor and I just see him smiling as he’s typing this because it’s clearly in response to the e-mail down below talking about picking up a few ‘fire sale items from the Brits.’”


Does this sound like he was joking?

One of the men who was in charge of security for U.S. diplomats in Libya says he feared for their safety long before the attack last month on the consulate in Benghazi. Four Americans were killed in the attacks on the Libyan consulate, including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

The concerned military security officer and Army green beret, Lt. Colonel Andrew Wood, will tell his story to Congress on Wednesday. …

Wood met daily with Stevens to discuss security. He says the ambassador was concerned about security.

He was constantly concerned about the threats to not just himself but the entire staff there,” Wood said.

Wood said that there was a visible security drawdown while he was in Libya. Pressure came from the higher headquarters at the State Department.

“It began shortly after I arrived,” he said. “There was pressure to reduce the number of security people there.”

    • She is blithe about this.

      Of course she is, and everyone knows it – which serves to highlight what’s really happening with her testimony: it’s theater, designed to convince Americans that the law applies equally to everyone while letting her off the hook because she’s above the law.

      It’s a fine balancing act but the elites and media are pros at this.

    Oh what a joke it was. As 4 Marines gave up their lives that terrible night to defend him. As he was buugered and dragged Thu he streets. An American Ambassador. She sat there. Did nothing. What a joke. AND the dems want her?

    In the end, nothing will come of this. Hillary’s Teflon is firmly in place.

    I don’t know why this is a big deal.

    Hillary has repeatedly said that she has taken ‘ full responsibility’ for the deaths of the four Americans.

    She has stepped down from her position as Secretary of state and that night will live forever in the hell of her mind.
    No one has spent more sleepless nights than her, questioning if she could nave done more to save those lives,

    I’m OK with that, except for a few minor details.

    First off, you bitch, you did nothing but say that ” you took responsibility” .
    You are running for to be POTUS.
    How can you take responsibility for 4 deaths and still run for POTUS ???

    Second, and more important;

    You pompous, windbag, POS, douchebag, lying PUNT, the families of those dead men spent many more hours lying awake wondering if you could have done more.

    And they are still doing it today,and tonight, and will do it again tomorrow.

      Hitlery is a true woman of mystery to her enthralled leftist fan base. They can’t decide which of her sociopathic or psychopathic quirks are the most appealing but they “get” the message.

    Why did the 30 people who survived the Benghazi attack sign NDAs?
    Why was Chelsea using ‘Diane Reynolds’ as an email pseudonym?
    Why did you reject the Pastor Jon video as a reason for the attack?

    Questions that will never be asked.

    I’m willing to bet security was higher at the Ottawa embassy than at the Benghazi compound. Heck, it’s probably higher at the Calgary consulate than it was at Benghazi.
