Do you remember this testimony? With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Americans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided that they’d they go kill some Americans? What difference at this point does it make,” stated Secretary of State Hillary Clinton before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee 1. 23, 2013.
By her own words and actions, Secretary Clinton reveals the disdain she has for both our military and the decisive actions required to protect American lives. In doing so, she has demonstrated her inability to uphold the oath of office, and thus disqualifies herself from the office of the president.
The Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi presented Mrs. Clinton with an opportunity to demonstrate her readiness to make effective decisions. But, rather than protect American lives, her first instinct was to protect the sensitivities of the Libyan government. Hillary chose to debate uniforms and videos that night, while Americans were dying.
Even before the smoke had cleared, Mrs. Clinton engaged in a deceptive cover-up, and would go on to deceive the American people. While looking in the eyes of the Benghazi parents, Hillary lied to these distraught families whose sons were just murdered.
The follow-on obstruction of justice is reminiscent of the very totalitarian regimes Hillary claims to abhor. Meanwhile voters find themselves overwhelmed with the litany of lies and deceptive tactics of the Clinton campaign smoke screen, and the truth of the disaster that happened in Libya is pushed under the rug.
Our nation’s commander in chief wields great power from the Oval Office, and this role must be filled by a president who is trusted by and feels accountable to the American people. The office of the presidency demands a president who will uphold the Constitution and the rights of its citizens above their own self-interests.
