Clinton Mail: A Memo From Tripoli, Obama’s Culpability

State released the sixth batch of Clinton’s email Friday.

The State Department released the sixth batch of Hillary Clinton’s email Friday, dumping out more evidence of Clinton’s deception amidst the 7,000 pages. Currently, State has released half of the Clinton email trove, with more damning dispatches likely yet uncovered. And while Clinton continued to insist to the American public that the 2012 attack on the Benghazi consulate was caused by a spontaneous protest, the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, asked Clinton to stop weaving that yarn. It’s more proof that she was furthering a political narrative to benefit Barack Obama’s re-election rather than the truth. “The overwhelming majority of the FB comments and tweets we’ve received from Libyans since the Ambassador’s death have expressed deep sympathy, sorrow, and regret,” read the memo that the embassy sent Sept. 14, 2012. “They have expressed anger at the attackers, and emphasized that this attack does not represent Libyans or Islam. Relatively few have even mentioned the inflammatory video. So if we post messaging about the video specifically, we may draw unwanted attention to it. And it is becoming increasingly clear that the series of events in Benghazi was much more terrorist attack than a protest which escalated into violence.” While this memo was sent at 6:43 a.m., Clinton was, on the same day, hugging the father of a slain Navy SEAL, telling him his son died because of a video.

This email release shows Clinton asking how to generate emojis on her Blackberry, showing that it’s not just fax machines that give Clinton technological difficulties. Meanwhile, the White House moved to protect Obama’s emails with Clinton from public scrutiny. It said those emails should be kept confidential until Obama discloses all his emails in the five to 12 years after he leaves office because of executive privilege. In other words, Clinton is being more transparent than the Obama administration. If those emails contain conversations about Libya, then they may show just how much responsibility the chief executive holds in the death of the four Americans ahead of his re-election. To get those emails, the House Select Committee on Benghazi must tread very, very carefully — if at all. Democrats have already accused the committee of being partisan.
