Late on the night of September 11th 2012, after mentioning the deaths of two of her State Department operators to her daughter Chelsea, Secretary of State Clinton added this: “....Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow....”
Why did Hillary Clinton say that AT THAT PARTICULAR MOMENT ???
Even at this late date, when the discussion turns toward former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s involvement, many if not most people would say something like — “BENGHAZI – There was no smoking gun....” (See e.g., “Things we learned from 50,000-plus pages of Clinton emails” by Bradley Klapper & Matthew Lee, 3/5/16, Yahoo News/ Associated Press [https://www.yahoo.com/news/things-learned-50-000-plus-pages-clinton-emails-080510407--election.html]).
Nonetheless, many of those same people have acknowledged that Hillary’s own E-mails contain some references to the events of the “13-Hours...” of Benghazi, which tie her into the narrative in many ways that are problematic for her. For example, Klapper and Lee in their AP article mentioned immediately above noted the following: that Secretary of State Clinton sent an E-mail to her daughter Chelsea at 11:12 PM on 9/11/12 which said, “Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an al-Qaida-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked, and a young communications officer on temporary duty w(ith) a wife and two young children....”; that Hillary Clinton E-mailed that to her daughter, under Chelsea’s alias “Diane Reynolds”; and at that time, the former Secretary of State also told her her daughter it was a “.... Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow....”
According to Klapper and Lee, others, including the House Select Committee on Benghazi, have focused on that very E-mail ( See also “Hillary Clinton’s Email to Chelsea Stars in Benghazi Hearing” by Peter Nicholas, 10/22/15, Wall Street Journal/ Washington Wire [http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2015/10/22/hillary-clintons-email-to-chelsea-stars-in-benghazi-hearing/][this article contains a photocopy of the actual 9/11/12 E-mail chain between HRC & Chelsea]). However, none of my research [internet searches] has turned up anybody that questioned Secretary Clinton's keen predictive powers, which, at very least, pointed toward the second concerted and well-orchestrated attack in Benghazi that caused the deaths of two more Americans and the severe wounding of others.
LET’S START WITH A TIMING REFERENCE FOR THE DAY & NIGHT OF THE BENGHAZI ATTACKS ON SEPTEMBER 11th 2012“Benghazi in that season was six hours ahead of Washington. The attacks began about 9:45 P.M. in Benghazi, and went on intermittently all night, with the deadly mortar assault coming at about 5:15 A.M. It took another five hours, and then some, before the last of the survivors, assembled at the airport, along with the bodies of the four dead Americans, were flown out of Benghazi -- not by American forces, but aboard a Libyan C-130 military cargo plane. Thus the roughly 13 hours referred to in the title of the movie, from approximately 9:45 PM on the evening of Sept. 11, until about 10:30 A.M on the morning of Sept. 12.... In Washington, six hours behind, that timing corresponded to roughly 3:45 P.M. on Sept. 11 until 4:30 A.M., Sept. 12, with Americans killed during the first eight hours of this terrible span. When mortar fire killed Doherty and Woods, about 5:15 A.M. in Libya, it was about 11:15 P.M., Sept. 11, in Washington. In other words, on the White House clock, the assault in Benghazi began mid-afternoon, Washington time, and went on for the rest of the afternoon and the entire evening. It was close to midnight, Washington time, when the mortar onslaught killed Woods, who was based in Benghazi, and Doherty, who had flown in that night from Tripoli as part of a small rescue squad. They died as part of a small group of warriors defending the other Americans under attack....” (See “13 Hours in Benghazi, and the Still-Missing White House Timeline” by Claudia Rosett, 1/24/16, PJ Media/ The Rosett Report [https://pjmedia.com/claudiarosett/13-hours-in-benghazi-and-the-still-missing-white-house-timeline/]).
HERE’S THE PROBLEM & HOW IT SUGGESTS WHY IT MIGHT LEAD TO THE PROVERBIAL “SMOKING GUN” IN HILLARY’S HANDWithout getting too far afield and/or too deeply into the weeds on this..... How is it that, at 11:12 PM on 9/11/12, Secretary Clinton was telling her daughter that she, the Secretary of State, feared more of the same the next day ?
At that MOMENT, the initial attacks on the State Department "Compound" in Benghazi had ceased, and the well-organized and precisely executed attacks on the Benghazi [CIA] “Annex,” where HRC’s State Department personnel had gone seeking refuge, had only just begun. Or to put it another way, Ambassador Chris Stevens and “Information Specialist” Sean Smith were already dead, and Secretary Clinton did know that; but two other Americans, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods were most likely still alive, although both were about to be killed at that very MOMENT while defending what was left of Hillary Clinton's staff in Benghazi.
How did Hillary Clinton know that very soon “...more of the same...” was coming in Benghazi from where she was in Washington, D.C. -- at 11:12 PM on September 11th, 2012 ???
