What difference does it make, Hillary? Whistleblower Eric Nordstrom answered that question during his opening statement during today’s congressional hearing on Benghazi. Mr. Nordstrom visibly choked back tears and said, “It matters.”



Twitchy will continue to monitor the hearing and update with further developments.

      Oh no it can’t. That could have a negative effect on “Hillary 2016”. That is why it has to “not matter” just like Bill’s BJs and all the other scandals that seem to have successfully moved into the “doesn’t matter” category.

        • Elaine

          Why it matters: Never mind the outright LIES, but by spreading that lie about some obscure movie they incited actual protests, causing many injuries and even deaths. How many times did Obama & Co. go around denouncing the film maker and apologize for the USA? He even thanked and praised those who dragged Ambassador Stevens through the streets to a hospital. That hospital just happened to be under the control of the same group who attacked our compound, so those were the terrorists he thanked? This is seriously very sick and does matter. No one from this administration helped them, so they are guilty of murder, in my opinion. The last thing Hillary should be is our President, although we all know she is the next “chosen one.”

    I’m hoping their testimonies will matter to the lamestream media and the American people. The incompetence of this president, his administration and Hillary had costed four lives, not only they weren’t up front with American people, how their ineptitude allow four people to be killed and many wounded, but they purposefully lied to the American people with a false narrative of what happened for weeks. They violated the oath of their office and need to go. The government people often forget they work for us. They should be fired for their ineptitude. JMO!

  • Phoenixangelfire

    Honour has neither gender, class race or age. It just is. It is about doing the right thing when it matters most. It is something inherent in those who have it a sense of principles and knowledge about the difference between right and wrong. Those who have it need not ask “What difference does it make.” Because they know the difference. It makes them who they are and it guides them in their lives. We need more more Nordstrom’s and less Clinton’s in the seats of power. Lest we forget, being an American is more than a simple fact of nationality; it is a commitment to a way of life, and ideal, and ultimately defines who we are when we say “I am an American.”

    • R0nin

      And unfortunately, they made their choice long ago. The only thing that will get them to change their mind is an outpouring of public sentiment against this administration (forcing them to change tack for the sake of their wallets).

      But how can there _be_ an outpouring of public sentiment, when the “Very Special Media” are the gatekeepers and deciders of what sentiments are allowed to be broadcast?

    on a seperate note, Katie Pavlich, is hot.

  • thehappyhedgehog

    Hillary cares deeply about the deaths of the four Americans at Benghazi and it’s repulsive, even obscene, to suggest otherwise. “What difference does it make?” referred to the motive for the terrorist attack that took their lives. Hillary suggested, correctly, that whatever the motive for terrorism — be it a revenge for a video, crazed anti-Americanism, Islamic extremism, or other — it’s terrorism and a heinous thing. Only degenerates claim that Hillary was saying it’s fine that four Americans died.

    • BAW

      What proof do you offer to convince anyone who doubts it that she “cares deeply about the deaths?” I fully understand the context of “what difference does it make?” and never said or thought it was in reference to the deaths and know in fact it reference the lies she told about their deaths.

      People watching Eric Nordstrom’s testimony today witnessed and were able to judge that he, indeed, “cares deeply about the deaths.” I have not observed any such “deep” emotion from Ms. Clinton. I have observed among other things, her lying about the video, denial of actual responsibility, and anger at being questioned. No doubt you and I have different points of views but to me, if she “cares deeply” she would want the whole truth (and nothing but the truth) about their deaths. Anything less is dishonoring no just their deaths but their lives as well.

      • thehappyhedgehog

        The CIA theorized about a video motive and it’s prudent to trust them over State Dept employees who don’t even speak fluent Arabic. And a video motive for committing terrorist murders would be particularly wicked and insane, like the many murders over the Danish Prophet cartoons (and you’ll recall that the Bush administration at first deplored the cartoons before coming around to a defense of free expression). God knows, though, conservatives love to imagine that liberals excuse Islamaniacs who murder people over blasphemy.

        • BAW

          Where is the proof that the CIA theorized about the video motive? Someone mentioning it or discussing – “theorizing” is not “intel.” The people who were there, in country (language barrier argument fails) providing the information (The Libyan President, Stevens, Hicks, etc.) did not mention the video. They all said it was an attack (not a protest or a demonstration) And I have not seen anything about the video in any official intelligence report on Benghazi. Where is it? The fact that there were protests in Egypt that might have been about the video (I’m no longer sure about that) has absolutely nothing to do with Benghazi.

        • BAW

          Everything in your comment is so wrong I’ll assume you’re misstating the Bush administration’s response to the cartoon too. There were protests in Cairo, that may, I repeat may have been about The Video (I’m beginning to doubt that). One terrorist group had called for protests on 9/11, at the Cairo Embassy, demanding the release of the The Blind Sheikh. It was the Cairo Embassy that put out that stupid comment condemning “continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” Mr. Hicks testified, under oath that he does in fact speak fluent Arabic. And that last bit nonsense, isn’t even worthy of response.

    • APW

      I find it repulsive and obscene that Hillary continued to suggest that the motivation for the attack was that G-D video, when she knew it wasn’t! It is as plain as the nose on your face that Obama needed to save his election speech narrative, that he didn’t need the freaking distraction to actually “BE” a president, that he made a deal with Hillary that he would support her in her presidential run and not throw her under the bus for the being derelict in HER duty. It’s the lies that compounded everything and hubris in the the extreme. I pray that they will be hoist on their own petard over this crime.

    It matters because, unlike Obama, Clinton, and Carney, we have loved ones on the ground, still in harms way. Benghazi or Bagram: it makes no difference.

    This was a coverup to get Obama re-elected. We all know that. Americans get involved when heroes, patriots and innocents get murdered on our soil – well what they don’t realize – the Embassy IS our soil! But, once again, the “not in my backyard” mentality and a scary reliance on d-bag, so-called “journalists” has let this SHAMEFULLY languish for months. Grow up media – do your damn job and get FACTS OUT SO PEOPLE CAN BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE. POTUS SHOULD BE IMPEACHED FOR THIS!!! BUT ONCE AGAIN THE MEDIA MORONS WILL BE MANIPULATED BY THE WHITE HOUSE AND NOTHING WILL HAPPEN….4 DEAD AMERICANS!!!

    • ELC

      Kathleen…your intentions are great, but, unfortunately not to happen. The media is on this d-bags side no matter what he does. This is what you get when the media is blind and deaf to barryboy reality. Its a sad fact that Americans had to lose their lives under this horrible administration. I don’t hold out any hope that anything will come to light. My Hero is Eric Nordstrom for being a whistle blower and telling it like it is. I bet you won’t see him on any network that’s in barryboy’s pocket. Sad commentary of our media isn’t it? I join you in wishing that he’s IMPEACHED, but that’s highly unlikely.


    I hope this testimony ends with Obummer’s entire administration arrested and sent to Gitmo.

  • justtheusa

    Nothing will come of all of your protests. Nothing. The people in charge of going after the villians in this case are fellow inmates at the asylum that are only interested in saving their own careers. Hillary and obama are untouchable as far as the people on the Hill are concerned. Their fear and loathing are well above that of the Jews when Hitler was in power in Germany. But they hide their heads and hope not to be noticed for fear of retribution. Shakespeare could not have written a more dazzling or shocking play as the theatre that is now playing to a world audience today.
