Shameless: Hillary claims Benghazi security cables never came to her attention

Unreal. During this afternoon’s portion of her Benghazi testimony, Secretary of State Clinton claimed that the cables asking for security at the consulate, and warning of danger,” never came to her attention.” This Twitter user was wondering when the cables would come up.

Why isn’t anyone asking Hillary if she read Steve s cables asking for help? When did Obama know? Who said stand down? This is a sham.

Earlier, Sen. Rand Paul made some mention of them, when he said that he would have relieved Hillary Clinton of her duties.

Rand Paul was absolutely correct when he said he’d have relieved Hillary of her duties for failing to read cables & costing 4 lives.

WAY-2-GO!!! Rand Paul to Clinton: Ambassador died because you did NOT read his cables bit.ly/10vVOFF#tcot twitter.com/slone/status/2…

This afternoon, she doubled down.

Clinton: I have made it very clear that those security cables did not come to my attention.

1.4 million cables a year come to my office and they are all addressed to me, Clinton says in her defense.

Americans are aghast and demand accountability. Who did read them then? And what happened to the buck stops here deal?

If Hillary didn’t read the cables from Chris Stevens, who did? Whoever read them should be fired.

No staff? RT @fran_chambers: 1.4 million cables a year come to my office and they are all addressed to me, Clinton says in her defense.

Twitter users aren’t buying it and rightly express their disgust.

So security cables didn’t come to her attention. Go ahead, Hillary. Say #whatdifferencedoesitmake

Hillary says she didn’t read cables begging for more security. Most jobs, not reading your mail gets you fired.

Hillary: No one could possibly expect me to read ALL the cables, and if 29 of them beg for beefed up security, tough break. #Benghazi

Hillary: I did not read those cables from that Ambassador, (sounds kinda familiar doesn’t it.) #Benghazi #tcot

— J.J. (@jjblazereader) January 23, 2013

Hillary doesn’t read her departments own cables even from her own ambassadors concerning security. #WhatDoesItMatter

— Rhonda Koenig(@Rhondako) January 23, 2013

Shouldn’t Clinton be annoyed that none of the cables requesting more security in Libya came to her attention?

— Katrina Trinko (@KatrinaTrinko) January 23, 2013

Huh. One would think that would be the case. Unless, you know, she’s lying.

Hillary was apparently hands-on getting health services to #Benghazi attack victims but delegated reading cables #clinton #liar

Or misspeaking.

Duncan says that he thinks that Clinton “misspoke” when she said she was not aware of cables asking for more security.

Dangerous incompetence, thy name is Hillary.
