If you wanted any more evidence that Hillary Clinton didn’t give a crap about the four Americans who were murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, all you have to do is look at this little fact unearthed from the emails released by the State Department this week.
More from Noah Rothman at Commentary:
…some of the most compelling details in those emails regarding Clinton’s conduct were in regards to the deadly 2012 attack on a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi. The emails reveal that the White House regarded Clinton as the “public face of the U.S. effort in Libya” in 2012. “She was instrumental in security the authorization, building the coalition, and tightening the noose around Qadhafi and his regime.” The White House noted that Clinton had been a “critical voice on Libya,” working closely with the president, NATO, and a number of contact groups both during the coalition intervention and in its aftermath. And when officials received a presidential briefing three days after the September 11, 2012 attack that took the life of a U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, Hillary Clinton was asleep.
“I just woke up,” Clinton wrote in an email sent at 10:43 a.m. ET on the morning of Saturday September 15, 2012. Surely, those Republicans tasked with crafting political advertisements in 2016 will not fail to contrast this revelation with Clinton’s famous 2008 spot in which she suggested that she would be a better candidate to take the crisis call that comes in at 3 a.m. When the crisis arrived, Hillary was literally napping.
Well that shouldn’t surprise anyone who remembers her “what difference does it make now!?” performance in front of the congressional investigation committee. Is someone who cares so little about Americans being killed in a foreign land fit for the Oval Office? I hope the American people will have the same answer I do to that question next election…
