What difference, at this point, does it make

by TPO O\'Halloran on April 4, 2014


In January, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton got into a heated exchange with Republican Senator Ron Johnson of Wisconsin during her testimony on Benghazi before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Johnson asked Clinton to ascertain whether the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya was a response to an anti-Islam YouTube video. A visibly-furious Clinton took exception to Johnson’s inquiry and shot back, “Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they’d go kill some Americans? What difference, at this point, does it make?”

By David Martosko

Hillary Clinton’s legacy as secretary of state is thin, judging from a press conference Tuesday in which the State Department’s chief spokeswoman couldn’t articulate any of the future presidential candidate’s achievements on the job.

She’s not alone, with experts of all political stripes finding it difficult to bolster Clinton’s resume as America’s top diplomat.

The former secretary of state herself had trouble articulating any lasting achievements from her tenure, during an April 3 appearance at the Women of the World Summit in New York City.

State Department Press Secretary Jen Psaki was flummoxed, too, when asked about a 2010 State Department Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review (QDDR) that summarized then-Secretary Clinton’s goals and accomplishments.

‘Can you, off the top of your head, identify one tangible achievement that … resulted from the last QDDR?’ asked an Associated Press reporter during the daily briefing.

‘I am certain that those who were here at the time, who worked hard on that effort, could point out one,’ Psaki replied through a forced smile.

‘I’m sure there are a range of things that were put into place that I’m not even aware of,’ she offered moments later.

‘I won’t hold my breath,’ the reporter shot back.

Video of the exchange rocketed across the Internet and quickly found its way to network television, bringing guffaws from a CNN panel

‘Given Hillary Clinton’s obvious ambitions that we continually talk about, although she’s not giving us much to go off of, it should not have been a surprising question,’ said Politico reporter Juana Summers, a guest appearing with chief national correspondent John King.

The question stumped Clinton herself on April 3.

‘When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of?’ the Women of the World Summit moderator asked. ‘And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?’

“Well, I really see – that was good – that’s why he wins prizes,’ Clinton dissembled.

Here we see extraordinary Muslim outreach resulting in ….. September 11, 2001. The President of the United States was writing mash notes to the mosque behind the 911 Muslim terror attacks. The same imam who was the go-to Islamic cleric for the NY TImes, Washington Post, et al. And still a decade later we are having the same inane conversations about moderates. Anwar Awlaki was a moderate, canoodling with Clinton …. until someone in power said he wasn’t. And even today, the Virginia legislature is issuing commendations to this very mosque.

They got it wrong then. And they are getting it wrong now.

AT: The Good Friday document dump from the Clinton Library archives includes a hand-written friendly note on official White House stationery to the chairman of a mosque former led by senior al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam. The note dates from March 2000, and was written in response to a letter from the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia.

“I’m interested in all these suggestions. Let’s follow up,” Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note “Bill.”

Patrick Howley of the Daily Caller notes:

Don’t you love how we find this out 13 years after 9/11. After a decade of cultural beatdowns on islamophobia and relentless pro-jihad rhetoric and religion of peace propganda. Now when the good guys are the bad guys and the bad guys are the good guys, no one will raise an eyebrow on this.

But this does prove how easily fooled the most powerful and “informed” up to and including the White House can be on Islam and jihad. Those that seek to destroy and annihilate us, speak with a silver tongue

Bill Clinton sent friendly handwritten note to chairman of mosque that al-Awlaki led, al-Qaeda operatives worked for, 9/11 hijackers worshipped at,” By, Daily Caller, April 22, 2014

Democratic President Bill Clinton sent a handwritten note offering to work together with the chairman of a mosque that counted 9/11 hijackers as worshippers, senior al-Qaeda operative Anwar al-Awlaki as an imam, and an al-Qaeda conspirator and would-be George W. Bush assassin as a teacher and camp counselor.

Clinton sent a handwritten note on official stationery in March 2000 to the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in response to a letter from the chairman. Clinton’s note was released as part of a document dump Friday by the Clinton presidential library.

The note was marked “THE PRESIDENT HAS SEEN 3-10-00.”

“I’m interested in all these suggestions. Let’s follow up,” Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note “Bill.”

The Dar Al-Hjrah Mosque was visited by FBI agents after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks after it was discovered that two 9/11 hijackers had worshipped at the mosque.

The mosque’s imam from 1995 to 1999, prior to Clinton’s note, was Mohammed Al Hanooti, who was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing by a U.S. attorney. Al Hanooti defended an acquaintance that was deported and indicted for arranging financial support for the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas.

The mosque’s imam from January 2001 to April 2002 was Anwar Al-Awlaki, a senior al-Qaeda recruiter linked to a handful of high-profile terrorists. U.S. officials stated that Al-Awlaki preached to three of the 9/11 hijackers while he was imam of the Falls Church mosque, and was also linked to the Fort Hood shooter. Al-Awlaki left the United States for Yemen in 2002 and was killed in a September 2011 drone strike commanded by the CIA.

“The death of Awlaki is a major blow to Al-Qaeda’s most active operational affiliate. He took the lead in planning and directing efforts to murder innocent Americans … and he repeatedly called on individuals in the United States and around the globe to kill innocent men, women and children to advance a murderous agenda. [The strike] is further proof that Al-Qaeda and its affiliates will find no safe haven anywhere in the world,” President Barack Obama said upon the al-Qaeda member’s death.

Former Muslim Brotherhood member and Muslim American Society co-founder Sheikh Mohammed Adam El-Sheikh served as imam between 2003 and 2005.

Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, an Islamic studies teacher and camp counselor at Dar Al-Hijrah, was charged with plotting with al-Qaeda members to assassinate George W. Bush. The mosque’s director of outreach since 2002, Johari Abdul-Malik, defended his mosque’s teacher and said, ”The feeling I get here on a daily basis must be what it was like to be a member of Martin Luther King Jr.‘s church following the case of Rosa Parks.”

Abu Ali was convicted in 2005 for providing material support to al-Qaeda and for conspiring to assassinate Bush. He was sentenced to life in prison.

The Investigative Project on Terrorism in 2010 obtained a report from TECS, a database operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection, stating that the mosque was “operating as a front for Hamas operatives in the U.S.”

Hillary Calls Illegal Immigrant’s Actions ‘Brave’

by Veronica Coffin on April 18, 2014

Until we enforce voter laws with the use of voter IDs, we will continue to see this kind of obnoxious pandering to illegal immigrants.

HillaryBy Todd Cefaratti

So often, Democrats and moderate Republicans seem to forget that those who remain in America in violate of our laws are, in fact, committing a crime.

Somehow laboring under the mistaken belief that to reside in America is a right of all people of the world, liberals are quick to crusade for illegal immigrants while routinely failing the Americans who rely on our elected leaders to advocate for our interests.
On Thursday, at the same event at which Chelsea Clinton announced her pregnancy, Hillary Clinton fielded a question from an illegal immigrant.
The woman who identified herself as Nova, claimed to have come to the United Stated illegally when she was five and offered an emotional sob-story about the difficulties of residing in America and getting college loans.
Clinton jumped to call Nova’s actions “brave.”
“Oh Nova,” Clinton said as the audience applauded. “That was incredibly brave. And I thank you for doing that because it’s important to put ourselves in other people’s shoes. That’s one of the big hopes I have, is that we can get back to being a country where people can understand what others are going through and have empathy for it and really try to help each other.”
“I’m a huge supporter of immigration reform and a path to citizenship and will continue to advocate for that,” Clinton said. “And the more stories, so that people can put a real face on what it means to have been brought here when you were five years old, to have spent your entire life here, to have made your best efforts here, and that’s what immigration [reform] should really be about.”
While both Democrats and moderate Republicans seem focused on providing an immigration reform package that would provide amnesty for those who live in our country illegally, the economy remains in dire straits, unemployment remains high (despite the skillful manipulation of unemployment figures) and American small businesses continue to weather the barrage of taxes, fees and overregulation of big government.
While it’s important to discuss what we are going to do to secure the border, we also need to discuss what we should do with the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants who reside in America already.
That is an important conversation to have, but realistic discussions seem impossible so long as the left (and the turncoats on the right) continue to praise those who willfully defy our laws.
Until we secure the border, we cannot begin discussions about the illegal immigrants already here. Furthermore, until we recognize these immigrants as being here in violation of our laws, we can have few discussions about any kind of provisions that allow for legal status.
And until we enforce voter laws with the use of voter IDs, we will continue to see this kind of obnoxious pandering to illegal immigrants.
