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, staying in regular contact with Department and other officials. She is looking forward to being back in the office soon."

As SNL's Church Lady would say, "Well, isn't that conveeeeeeenient?"
First, Susan Rice, Obama's choice for Sec. Of State, withdraws herself from consideration, and now she doesn't have to testify about Benghazi under oath. Now the current Sec. Of State has a "stomach virus", and can't testify about Benghazi under oath. Over the years, I have seen a "stomach virus" to be the most common excuse used by employees who didn't feel like coming to work. Obama's people lie for him continuously, but don't want to do it under oath. The coverup continues.

The minute I heard this this report I just shoook my head in disgust. How stupid are Americans? Perhaps it's not stupidity, but apathy, that has us where we are today.

We allow it to happen. The American people should NOT stand for this. Things have flopped from the way it was intended. The Government now tells the people what it wants, what to do and how it will be. The people are no longer in control of Government.

I think I know what Clinton's going to do when she finally does testify. Every time they ask her a question, she's going to say she can't remember because of the "concussion".

The report, based on a probe led by former U.S. diplomat Thomas Pickering, calls the facility a “Special U.S. Mission.”

Until now, government descriptions routinely referred to the facility as a “mission,” while the news media largely wrongly labeled the building a “consulate.”

The report divulges how the mission’s special “non-status” made providing security to the facility difficult.

“Special Mission Benghazi’s uncertain future after 2012 and its ‘non-status’ as a temporary, residential facility made allocation of resources for security and personnel more difficult,” it said.

The report contains information that clearly contradicts any claim that the special mission was to serve as a liaison office to the local government, It documents how the local government was not even informed of the existence of the mission.

Noted the report: “Another key driver behind the weak security platform in Benghazi was the decision to treat Benghazi as a temporary, residential facility, not officially notified to the host government, even though it was also a full-time office facility.”

“This resulted in the Special Mission compound being excepted from office facility standards and accountability under the Secure Embassy Construction and Counterterrorism Act of 1999 (SECCA) and the Overseas Security Policy Board (OSPB).”

The report related how U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens first arrived in Libya secretly in a cargo ship to serve as a liaison to the rebels fighting the regime of Moammar Gadhafi.

It also confirmed that Stevens’ last official meeting was with “a Turkish diplomat.”

Turkey is the main force behind Arab support for the opposition currently targeting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

WND has published a series of investigations showing the Benghazi mission was highly involved in the rebel-led Mideast revolutions to which Pickering is tied.

WND was first to report the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi served as a meeting place to coordinate aid for rebel-led insurgencies in the Middle East, according to Middle Eastern security officials.

In September, WND also broke the story that the slain ambassador, Christopher Stevens, played a central role in recruiting jihadists to fight Assad’s regime, according to Egyptian security officials.

Last month, Middle Eastern security sources further described both the U.S. mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi as the main intelligence and planning center for U.S. aid to the rebels that was being coordinated with Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar.

Many rebel fighters are openly members of terrorist organizations, including al-Qaida.

Most news media outlets covering the results of Pickering’s investigation did not note the possible non-diplomatic nature and status of the Benghazi mission.
