Bee's note: When I first heard about this, I thought "What difference does it make?". The investigations on Benghazi are not complete and the American people still await answers; many of us wish the Congressional investigations would subpoena Hillary; to-date, no one is held responsible for the deaths of our Ambassador and our Navy Seals who bravely tried to protect him. How sad! What a mockery! Outrageous!
What do you receive for getting four Americans killed in Benghazi, including our ambassador? Just ask Hillary Clinton.
On September 10--exactly a day short of one year after she and Obama allowed their own officials to die in real time--Clinton will be awarded the National Constitution Center's Liberty Medal.
From Constitution Daily:
"The Liberty Medal recognizes individuals who have furthered the ideals of freedom, democracy, and equality, often against great odds," said National Constitution Center President and CEO Jeffrey Rosen. "Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for 'We the People' not just in this country but around the globe."As the 67th Secretary of State, Clinton broke national and global barriers. She was the first First Lady to serve in a presidential Cabinet...As Secretary of State, Clinton advocated for "smart power" in foreign policy, elevating diplomacy and development and repositioning them for the 21st century--with new tools, technologies, and partners, including the private sector and civil society around the world.
Here's "smart power" in action. During a Senate hearing, after the 2012 election, Senators asked the Secretary of State whether she had read cables coming from Benghazi requesting security; Clinton drew a blank. She replied, "With specific security requests, they didn't come to me; I had no knowledge of them."
If anyone is still wondering how a woman who lied to Congress and left four Americans dead can be honored with a liberty award look no further than the Chairman of the National Constitution Center, Jeb Bush.
Former Secretary Clinton has dedicated her life to serving and engaging people across the world in democracy...These efforts as a citizen, an activist, and a leader have earned Secretary Clinton this year's Liberty Medal.
Tell me, Governor Bush, Ambassador Stevens get for making the ultimate sacrifice? How about Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty? Will the families of the dead be present for Hillary's award? I am sure they will have a few words about Hillary's skill, courage, and dedication in supporting those who serve our country and put their lives on the line.
Since when does letting Americans die and then lying about it deserve a medal?
In the cesspool where corrupt politicians like Hillary and Jeb hang out, the more you mess up, the more you get rewarded! Recently, sex addict Bill Clinton received the Father of the Year award and a President who proved he gets off on drone strikes managed to pick up a Nobel Peace Prize before anyone realized he was a hawk.
So just ignore Hillary's terrible record as Secretary of State and ignore the ambassador and staff she failed to protect. Remember, that "Hillary Clinton has devoted her life to expanding opportunities for 'We the People' not just in this country but around the globe."
