Remember the Benghazi terror attack? The one where four of our men – including our ambassador to Libya – were murdered? The one where the Obama administration ordered rescue teams to stand down? Yeah, that national embarrassment is back in the spotlight.
So is Hillary Clinton: our other national embarrassment.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton won’t testify to Congress next week on Benghazi, after fainting and suffering a concussion Saturday and due to her ongoing stomach ailment.
“While suffering from a stomach virus, Secretary Clinton became dehydrated and fainted, sustaining a concussion,” Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Philippe Reines said in a statement. “She has been recovering at home and will continue to be monitored regularly by her doctors. At their recommendation, she will continue to work from home next week…”
Deputy Secretaries of State Bill Burns and Tom Nides will both testify in Clinton’s place, according to the office of Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry.
This may shock you, but John Kerry has no problem with the Hill-dabeast ducking her responsibility to testify. In fact, he practically applauded it through his spokeswoman: “the nation’s best interests are served by the report and hearings proceeding as scheduled with senior officials appearing in her place.”
No, Mr. Ed, the nation’s best interests are served by uncovering the truth. Your – and your party’s – best interests are served by keeping Hillary under wraps; preferably until she announces his presidential run.
