Ambassador Chris Stevens’s deputy Gregory Hicks, who was in Tripoli at the time, testified that he spoke to Hillary Clinton at 2 AM [8pm ET] on the night of the attack and there was no mention of any demonstration or You Tube video. “We saw no demonstrations relating to the video, there was only an attack,” he testified. When asked about military personnel being told to stand down, he replied “They were furious.” Hicks also said he had been told by the State Department not to speak to congressional investigators. He has basically been demoted and now works a desk job.
This is the second indication that the attack in Benghazi is an organized terrorist assault: an earlier email sent by an unnamed State Department official relayed a communication from Tripoli and had the subject heading "Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack (SBU)".
10pm, 9/11/12 - Secretary of State Hillary Clinton releases a statement blaming an Internet video for the death of Ambassador Stevens and three others.
...in the 10:00 p.m. hour Washington, D.C. time on Sept. 11, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton issued a written “Statement on the Attack in Benghazi" that said: “Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious belief of others.”
....that statement was put out before former Navy SEALs Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods died in Benghazi. Who specifically told Hillary Clinton that there were some people blaming this on inflammatory response to--inflammatory material on the internet? Where did she get that idea at 10 p.m. on September 11th?
In those fateful two hours, Hillary Clinton invented a way to evade responsibility for the state of security in Benghazi. She had repeatedly denied Ambassador Stevens' requests for security and, worse, stripped virtually all security from him after dispatching him to one of the most dangerous cities on earth.
She needed an out, an alibi. And some obscure videographer -- who is still rotting in prison -- was the perfect scapegoat.
9/12/12 - one of Hillary's senior State Department officials emails associates her conversation with a Libyan diplomat concerning the real reason for the attack.
...an email dated Sept. 12, 2012 to senior State Department officers, from Elizabeth Jones, the acting Secretary of State for Near Eastern Affairs [described] a conversation she had with then-Libyan ambassador Ali Aujali, Jones wrote in the previously undisclosed email that 'I told him that the group that conducted the attacks, Ansar al-Sharia, is affiliated with Islamic terrorists.'
This represents the third known State Department communication confirming that an Al Qaeda-linked group had successfully attacked a consulate and assassinated a U.S. Ambassador, the first killed in the line of duty in 30 years.
1/23/13 - Yet testifying before a Senate Committee on the Benghazi debacle, Clinton asserted she'd never received any reports that contradicted the talking points that Susan Rice used on the Sunday morning talk shows:
I certainly did not know of any reports that contradicted the IC talking points at the time that Ambassador Rice went on the TV shows.
LIAR - this woman is a disgrace and a perjurer. She lied under oath to Congress. She should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law for her contemptible testimony.
