Book “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump” — “Left-wing groups met with Al-Qaeda and ISIS to plot Trump’s destruction” — Radical Left are joining forces in an attempted coup d’tat to overturn the will of the people.”

October 30, 2017
 – The Washington Times – Sunday, October 29, 2017

Monday will be noisy as more details on the Russia collusion probe emerge. But wait. “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump” by veteran investigative journalist Edward Kleinalso arrives Monday, making a detailed case that the notorious “deep state” is indeed up and running against President Trump and his administration.

“In America, you are entitled to your own opinion. But you are not entitled to overthrow the democratically elected president of the United States and inflict irreparable damage on our country. That, however, is what Donald Trump’s enemies on the Left and Right are doing. Through a variety of underhanded tactics — lies, leaks, obstruction, and violence — they are working to delegitimize President Trump and drive him from office before he can drain the swamp and take away their power,” writes Mr. Klein, former editor-in-chief of The New York Times Magazine.

This is his 14th book, following “Guilty As Sin” and “Unlikable: The Problem with Hillary” — one centered on Hillary Clinton’s email woes, the other on her failed 2016 campaign. Now the author dwells upon Mr. Trump’s challenges, which appear to be unprecedented.

“With ferocity not seen since the Civil War, the Washington establishment and the radical Left are joining forces in an attempted coup d’tat to overturn the will of the people and return power to the political and media elites who have never been more unhinged,” says publisher Regnery Books, adding the new book reveals that “left-wing groups met with Al-Qaeda and ISIS to plot Trump’s destruction,” this according to an FBI investigation.

Edward Klein is the former editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine and the author of numerous bestsellers including his fourth book on the Clintons, Guilty as Sin, in 2016. His latest book is All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump will be released October 30, 2017

A secret FBI investigation of the violent ‘resistance’ movement on college campuses against President Trump has led to an alarming discovery—the collusion between American anarchists and foreign terrorists in the Islamic State and Al qaeda, according to a confidential ‘Informational Report’ by FBI field offices.

‘There is clearly overwhelming evidence that there are growing ties between All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trumpand the Islamic State, as well as several [ISIS] offshoots and splinter groups,’ stated the FBI field report, which was delivered to Acting Director Andrew McCabe on July 11, 2017, and which is being published for the first time in my new book All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump.

The FBI report on efforts by Islamic terrorists to recruit followers among violent U.S. groups like Antifa corroborates President Trump’s controversial claim, following last summer’s deadly protests in Charlottesville, Virginia, that left-wing anarchist groups are just as dangerous as right-wing white supremacists.

‘This is the greatest challenge to law enforcement since the Weather Underground and the Black Panther Party,’ the FBI report declared.

Last summer, the FBI dispatched a task force to Europe to report on massive demonstrations planned by radical groups, such as the German contingent Antifaschistische Aktion, to protest President Trump’s attendance at a meeting of leaders and central bank governors of the G20 group of major industrialized countries

‘Task force covered G20 meeting in Hamburg, studied intel from local authorities, Interpol, and other assets, determined that as assumed U.S.-backed anarchist/radical groups had traveled to Germany and took place in the violence,’ the FBI’s summary stated.

‘There is also evidence of meetings between these individuals and associates of ISIS. There is an urgent need to closely surveil the identified individuals.’

The agents sent by the FBI paid particular attention to a group of anarchists from Oakland, a major port city that lies adjacent to the campus of the University of California at Berkeley, the scene of several violent protests.

‘While there has been military progress in Iraq against the Islamic State, their influence in Europe and throughout the world is clearly growing,’ the report said.

‘Now that the bureau has determined they have followers in the radical U.S. resistance movement in the United States, it is clear there will be additional violence in the attacks on law enforcement and U.S. institutions, including banks.

‘Ties between three key leaders of the Oakland group [names redacted] met in Hamburg with a leader of the AQAP [Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula] and the AQIM [Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb],’ the report continued. ‘The leader from AQAP is an Egyptian-born male [name redacted] who is known to be in charge of finances and recruiting for the group.

‘There is evidence from informants that he is helping the Oakland group acquire the weapons they are seeking, primarily bomb making equipment and toxic chemicals and gasses.

‘One of the men from Oakland traveled to Syria to meet with ISIS; the purpose was for training in tactics, but was thought to be primarily a bonding visit to discuss possible massive disruptive attacks in the U.S.

‘While in Hamburg, several of the Oakland-based criminals were photographed throwing Molotov cocktails and wielding iron bars, which have been their weapons of choice, though they are almost certainly on the verge of upping the caliber of their weaponry for use in the U.S.

‘Despite having their faces covered by masks, they were positively identified.

‘This group and their connections with the radical Islamic groups must be disrupted and destroyed.

Before he was fired as director of the FBI, James Comey collected intelligence on the connections between Middle Eastern jihadis, European radicals, and the American anarchists who are part of the anti-Trump ‘resistance’ movement.

‘The Americans communicate with the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations on websites, and they use those websites to download instructions on making weapons,’ said an FBI source who had access to Comey’s intelligence reports.

‘As the Trump administration has demonstrated it’s serious about destroying the Islamic State, and depriving ISIS of territory in Iraq and Syria, the alliance between the American radicals and ISIS has grown even closer. The Internet chatter between the Americans and the Islamists is astronomical.

‘The FBI is really playing catchup ball, because the Obama administration refused to give the bureau the resources it needed to effectively infiltrate and surveil the radical groups on college campuses,’ the source continued.

‘Any talk of a connection between radical Islam—a phrase the Obama people wouldn’t even use—and American extremists was pretty much laughed off. [Former Attorney General] Loretta Lynch would have blown a gasket if she heard that the FBI was surveilling so-called college political organizations.

‘All that has changed under the Trump administration. Everyone’s aware that the resistance movement, with its effort to get rid of Trump by any means necessary, has created fertile soil for ISIS and al Qaeda to establish a beachhead in America.’

Insider claims Bill Clinton is ‘heartsick’ over Hillary’s book tour

October 10, 2017

By Richard Johnson
New York Post

Edward Klein, who has written several books about the Clintons and Kennedys, has a hotly anticipated book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” out Oct. 30.

In the meantime, he reveals that Hillary Clinton’s finger-pointing book, “What Happened” — which is chock-full of excuses for her shocking election loss to Donald Trump — may be a best seller, but Bill Clinton tossed his copy in the trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour.

“Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes with a red pencil,” said a close Clinton family friend. “But she refused to even read his corrections, and he got so furious that he tossed the entire manuscript into the garbage.

“He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities in a person who aspired to be a world leader,” the friend continued.

“He hated the title because calling it ‘What Happened’ would only make people say, ‘You lost.’ He urged her to postpone the pub date and rewrite the book, but she yelled at him and said, ‘The book is finished and that’s how it’s going to be published.’ ”

Since their fight last summer over the book, Bill’s negative feelings about Hillary’s memoir have grown even more intense as she’s used her book tour to blame her loss on Russian hackers, former FBI Director James Comey and women who didn’t vote for her.

Klein writes in his upcoming book that Bill warned Hillary a month before the election that she was losing and that she needed to campaign in the Rust Belt states.

“She told him he was delusional,” Klein writes.

“Bill’s criticism — and what Hillary sees as his lack of sympathy — has driven a wedge between them,” the friend said. “They haven’t been speaking for months. They’ve been communicating through friends and lawyers.”

“Ed is a sad man,” a spokesman for Hillary said. “And a pathetic liar,” added Bill’s rep.

Bill, White House staff lived in fear of Hillary: Ex-Secret Service officer

June 7, 2016

Hillary Clinton has a “Jekyll and Hyde” personality that left White House staffers scared stiff of her explosive — and even physical — outbursts, an ex-Secret Service officer claims in a scathing new tell-all.

Gary Byrne, who was posted outside the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, portrays Hillary as too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to become leader of the free world, according to advance promotional materials exclusively obtained by Page Six.

The allegations from Byrne, a 29-year veteran of the military and federal law enforcement, threaten to derail her campaign days before she is expected to clinch the Democratic presidential nomination.

The New York Post’s cover on June 6, 2016

He describes Hillary Clinton as acting friendly one moment, then raging the next.

“What I saw in the 1990s sickened me,” he writes in the intro of the book, “Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses his Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate.”

The book claims she repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade.

Secret Service agents had discussions about the possibility that they would have to protect Bill from his wife’s physical attacks, Byrne writes, and the couple had one “violent encounter” the morning of a key presidential address to the nation.

Meanwhile, a paranoid Hillary Clinton tried to have the Secret Service banned from the White House and once tried to ditch her security detail, Byrne says.

“Hillary Clinton is now poised to become the Democratic nominee for president of the United States, but she simply lacks the integrity and temperament to serve in the office,” he writes.

“From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.”

The book isn’t set for release until June 28, but pre-orders have sent it to No. 1 on Amazon’s best-seller list.

Byrne — who was subpoenaed to testify before the grand jury that investigated Bill Clinton’s affair with intern Monica Lewinsky — claims in the book that he interrupted the president’s sexual shenanigans in the White House.

Byrne says he walked into a room where the president was “involved inappropriately with a woman” who was neither his wife nor Lewinsky.

And he says he once threw out a White House towel stained with a woman’s lipstick — and the president’s “bodily fluids.”

Byrne describes arriving for work one day in 1995 following a loud fight between the Clintons the night before.

The dust-up, he says, left a light blue vase “smashed to bits” and Bill sporting a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.”

Byrne’s book amplifies earlier allegations of mistreatment of Secret Service personnel by Hillary Clinton — including in 2014’s “First Family Detail” by former Washington Post reporter Ronald Kessler and last year’s “The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House,” which also detailed a fight between Bill and Hillary over the Lewinsky affair.

Hillary Clinton’s campaign downplayed Byrne’s book and compared him to Edward Klein, author of last year’s “Unlikeable: The Problem with Hillary.”

“Gary Byrne joins the ranks of Ed Klein and other ‘authors’ in this latest in a long line of books attempting to cash in on the election cycle with their nonsense,” spokesman Nick Merrill said. “It should be put in the fantasy section of the book store.”

A spokeswoman for presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump suggested Byrne’s book would be grist for his campaign as prepares to face Clinton in the general election.

“The issue of temperament is more a problem for Hillary Clinton,” said the spokeswoman, Katrina Pierson.

“I don’t recall Mr. Trump ever screaming at the Secret Service, calling them pigs, throwing vases across the room and clawing the face of his spouse, which Hillary Clinton has been reported to do,” she told CNN.

Hillary Clinton enlisted the help of Steven Spielberg in an attempt to maker her seem more likeable, a new book claims — Bill Clinton says the media, Republicans are to blame for email mess

September 27, 2015

Questions remain…..

  • Bill Clinton told Hillary she needed help with speeches, a new book claims 
  • Experts said she seemed ‘irritated and bored’ while speaking to the public 
  • She asked Steven Spielberg to provide acting coaches to help her prepare
  • But she complained she had to ‘pretend that I actually like the audience’ 
  • Lessons came to an end when she knocked over a camera in frustration 

Hillary Clinton enlisted the help of Steven Spielberg in an attempt to maker her seem more likeable, a new book claims.

The front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination was urged to seek help by her husband Bill Clinton – and he told her: ‘Let’s ask Steven for help,’ according to the book, which is called Unlikeable.

So their friend Spielberg provided acting coaches to help Hillary prepare for speeches.

But the sessions came to an abrupt end after Hillary took her frustrations out on a camera and knocked it off its tripod, according to an excerpt of the book published in the New York Post.

Bill Clinton Blames G.O.P. and Press for Wife’s Email Woes

Former President Bill Clinton blamed Republicans who hope to undercut his wife’s presidential chances and a voracious political news media uninterested in substance for the furor surrounding Hillary Rodham Clinton’s use of a private email account and server while she was secretary of state.

“I have never seen so much expended on so little,” Mr. Clinton said in a taped interview with Fareed Zakaria that is scheduled to be shown Sunday on CNN. The network released excerpts on Saturday afternoon.

“She said she was sorry that her personal email caused all this confusion,” Mr. Clinton said. “And she’d like to give the election back to the American people. I think it will be all right. But it’s obvious what happened.”

Ugly Rumor: Obama Advisor Valerie Jarrett Leaked Hillary E-Mail Story To Media

After Hillary Clinton’s Book Sales Bomb, Finger Pointing at Simon & Schuster — But Is She Still The Top Democrat for 2016?

July 9, 2014

.

There’s hand-wringing and finger-pointing at Simon & Schuster over the soft performance of Hillary Clinton’s “Hard Choices,” for which she got a $14 million advance, sources said — and which was replaced at No. 1 on the best-seller list this week by an “exposé” about Hillary and Bill Clinton.

The former secretary of state’s tome sold 161,000 copies in its first three weeks, according to Nielsen BookScan — but 85,000 of those were sold in the first week. That number has dropped sharply to 48,000 and 28,000 in subsequent weeks, with most recent numbers due out Wednesday.

Simon & Schuster shipped an optimistic 1 million copies to stores. Hillary reportedly got $8 million for her last book for the publisher, “Living History,” which sold 438,000 in its first week and more than 1.15 million copies overall.

Adding insult to injury, the new book was pushed from the No. 1 spot on the New York Times best-seller list this week by Edward Klein’s story of the Clintons’ pained relationship with Barack and Michelle Obama, “Blood Feud.” A source close to Hillary has blasted the book, along with its author, as “dastardly” and a combination of “pathological lying, hate and just flat-out creepiness.”

“There’s lots of finger-pointing going on at Simon & Schuster,” over the very expensive Clinton deal, a source told Page Six.

Another insider said sales of 161,000 for “Hard Choices” would be “OK” for a normal book without such a big advance and expectations. “It’s an OK number — it’s very solid — a good amount to sell in three weeks,” the source said. “And the book is $35, significantly higher than most.” Also, BookScan only measures 85 percent of the print market, and not e-books.

A rep for Simon & Schuster did not respond to a request for comment. Reports have said the early numbers for “Hard Choices” reflect that it will not sell enough to cover Clinton’s advance, or to sell the million copies shipped, which are sent on consignment with unsold copies ultimately going back to the publisher.

Hillary called Obama ‘a joke’ at lunch with pals: book

June 27, 2014

Hillary Rodham Clinton called President Obama “incompetent and feckless” and charged that he had “no hand on the tiller half the time,” during a boozy reunion with college pals, a new book claims.

The scathing attacks came as the wine was flowing at a May 2013 dinner at Le Jardin Du Roi, a cozy French bistro near the Clinton family home in Westchester, according to “Blood Feud,” by best-selling author Edward Klein.

The former first lady, months removed from being Obama’s secretary of state, unleashed the verbal assault between sips of vino, sources told the author.

“When her friends asked Hillary to tell them what she thought — really thought — about the president she had served for four draining years, she lit into Obama with a passion that surprised them all,” Klein wrote.

Clinton ranted, “The thing with Obama is that he can’t be bothered, and there is no hand on the tiller half the time. That’s the story of the Obama presidency. No hand on the f–king tiller,” according to the book, which was excerpted exclusively in Sunday’s Post.

“Obama has turned into a joke,” she went on, according to Klein.

“The IRS targeting the Tea Party, the Justice Department’s seizure of AP phone records and [Fox reporter] James Rosen’s e-mails — all these scandals. Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did,” she raged, the book says, adding that she called the president “incompetent and feckless.”

Obama’s allowed his hatred for his enemies to screw him the way Nixon did.

 – Hillary Clinton

Hillary also heaped praise on her hubby, Bill, lauding his presidency and leadership skills — and bitterly complained about the lousy treatment she said the Clintons have received from the current president.

 

“Obama has treated Bill and me incredibly shabbily. And we’re angry,” she said.

Clinton confided to her unnamed pals that she and Bill promised the Obamas they would work to get him re-elected in 2012 if he promised to return the favor and help Hillary win the presidency four years later.

“He agreed to the arrangement but then he reneged on the deal. His word isn’t worth s–t,’ Hillary said, according to Klein’s book. “The bad blood between us is just too much to overcome.”

And Bill Clinton shared his wife’s loathing for Obama, as The Post reported Sunday.

“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill told pals, according to the book.

The toxic feud between the Clintons and Obamas — Journalist Edward Klein’s New Book ‘Blood Feud’

June 22, 2014
  • New book, ‘Blood Feud’ alleges that Bill Clinton hates Barack Obama for accusing him of being racist
  • Book lifts lid on the ongoing animosity between the Democrat Party’s two power couples
  • Outlines how Barack Obama teases the Clintons over his endorsement of Hillary for 2016
  • Claims that Michelle calls Hillary ‘Hildebeest’ and gossips over her with friends
  • Book reveals that President Obama has told the Clintons that Michelle would be a good president

By James Nye

The simmering cauldron of hatred that exists between the Obamas and the Clintons threatens to explode in a volcanic eruption that could threaten all Democrat chances in 2016, says a sensational new book.

Despite their much-vaunted public truce, journalist Edward Klein claims in ‘Blood Feud’ that Bill Clinton despises President Obama and that Michelle refers to Hillary behind closed doors as the ‘Hildebeest’.

The animosity between the Democrat Party’s two power couples has reached such intensity that Klein says the president is willing to renege on his promise to endorse Hillary for 2016 and has teased the Clintons with suggestions that Michelle would be a strong candidate for the Oval Office.

Dating back to Obama’s defeat of Hillary Clinton for the 2008 Democratic nomination they believed was theirs, Bill has never forgiven Obama for allegations he made during that bitter campaign.

‘I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,’ said Bill Clinton to a friend after Obama suggested he was a racist in 2008.

Indeed, despite Obama bringing Hillary into his cabinet as Secretary of State after his storming victory in 2008, her presence only proved to antagonize relations between the two couples.

According to an account of Klein’s explosive allegations in The New York Post, Michelle Obama would sit in the evenings with her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett to gossip and make fun of Hillary over a bottle of Chardonnay.

.

Gossip and teasing: According to Edward Klein, Michelle Obama likes to make fun of Hillary Clinton over a glass of wine at the end of the day

They nicknamed Hillary the ‘Hildebeest’, in reference to the ugly and sturdy gnu that is often seen wandering the Serengeti.

In the run up to the 2012 election, Obama’s campaign team advised the sitting president that he needed to utilize the sure-touch of Bill Clinton if he wanted to secure a second term.

Loathed to do this, Obama finally asked the former president to play a round of golf with him in September 2011, to ask for his help.

 

More…

‘I’m not going to enjoy this,’ Bill told Hillary according to Klein.

‘I’ve had two successors since I left the White House — Bush and Obama — and I’ve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than I’ve heard from Obama. I have no relationship with the president — none whatsoever,’ Clinton said.

‘I really can’t stand the way Obama ­always seems to be hectoring when he talks to me.

‘Sometimes we just stare at each other. It’s pretty damn awkward. Now we both have favors to ask each other, and it’s going to be very unpleasant. But I’ve got to get this guy to owe me and to be on our side.’

The golf game was petty, tetchy and not without incident.

.

No love lost; Despite having her in his cabinet as Secretary of State, President Clinton is wavering over his endorsement of Hillary Clinton (both seen here in 2011) for the 2016 nomination

Clinton immediately tried to claim the upper hand by reminding Obama that he presided over an economic golden age, while Obama was struggling to affect any change during the Great Recession.

Hammering home his point, Bill Clinton told Obama that obviously he and Hillary would be running for president in 2016 and that his wife would be ‘the most qualified, most experienced candidate, perhaps in history.’

This rankled with Obama, acutely aware of any attacks on his relative inexperience on walking into the White House.

‘And so Bill continued to talk about Hillary’s qualifications . . . and the coming campaign in 2016,’ writes Klein as featured in The New York Post.

‘But Barack didn’t bite. He changed the subject several times. Then suddenly, Barack said something that took Bill by complete surprise. He said, ‘You know, Michelle would make a great presidential candidate, too.’

‘Bill was speechless. Was Barack comparing Michelle’s qualifications to Hillary’s?

‘Bill said that if he hadn’t been on a mission to strike a deal with Barack, he might have stormed off the golf course then and there.’

A deal was struck nonetheless. Bill delivered a barnstorming speech to the Democratic National Convention, which threatened to upstage the president himself.

However, the Clintons both felt that the president was wavering in his commitment to endorse Hillary for 2016 as his side of the bargain.

In an effort to smooth over the rising tensions, the Obamas hosted the Clintons on March 1, 2013 at a dinner – the day that the $85 million ‘sequester’ budget cuts went into effect.

The meal could go down as the moment that all bets were off in the two couple’s political marriage of necessity.

According to Klein, who spoke to those with knowledge of the dinner, Bill couldn’t help hectoring Barack about his handling of the economy.

Hillary, attempting to change the subject asked Michelle if it was true she might copy her and run as a Senator, in Illinois, after her husband left office.

Michelle demurred to answer and allegedly Bill was stunned that Hillary would have shown her hand so openly.

The back-and-forth between the four grew steadily more icy.

Bill suggested that the president turn over his much-vaunted social media enabled campaign know-how to the Democratic party at large.

‘You have to use your organization to aid the candidate in 2016,’ Bill pressed Obama.

‘Really?’ replied a sarcastic Obama, according to Klein.

Things deteriorated as Bill continued to lecture the table as the president began to ignore his guests and check his Blackberry.

According to Klein, Hillary tried to change the subject again and asked if Barack Obama was happy he wouldn’t have to campaign again, especially because he didn’t seem to like it.

‘For a guy who doesn’t like it,’ Obama replied, ‘I’ve done pretty well.’

‘Well,’ Bill said according to Klein in The New York Post, ‘I was glad to pitch in and help get you re-elected.’

The after-effects of that meal are still being felt.

The Clintons have become convinced that Obama will not back Hillary for 2016 and that he is seeking to endorse Joe Biden or a new, young politician, just like he was.

‘He’s convinced himself he’s been a brilliant president, and wants to clone himself — to find his Mini-Me,’ says Bill Clinton according to Klein.

‘He’s hunting for someone to succeed him, and he believes the American people don’t want to vote for someone who’s been around for a long time. He thinks that your mother and I are what he calls ‘so 20th century.’ He’s looking for ­another Barack Obama.’

Obama’s Claim He Had “al Qaeda On The Run” Resulted in Benghazi “Coverup”, Journalist Edward Klein Says

June 22, 2014

.

U.S. commandos and the FBI captured Ahmed Abu Khattala, said to be one of the masterminds behind the 2012 consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya

If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

In his new book, “Blood Feud,” journalist Edward Klein gets inside the dysfunctional, jealous relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama. Here, he explains what happened the night of the Benghazi attack.

By Edward Klein

By 10 p.m. on Sept. 11, 2012, when Hillary Clinton received a call from President Obama, she was one of the most thoroughly briefed officials in Washington on the unfolding disaster in Benghazi, Libya.

She knew that Ambassador Christopher Stevens and a communications operator were dead, and that the attackers had launched a well-coordinated mortar assault on the CIA annex, which would cost the lives of two more Americans. She had no doubt that a terrorist attack had been launched against America on the anniversary of 9/11.

However, when Hillary picked up the phone and heard Obama’s voice, she learned the president had other ideas in mind. With less than two months before Election Day, he was still boasting that he had al Qaeda on the run. If the truth about Benghazi became known, it would blow that argument out of the water.

“Hillary was stunned when she heard the president talk about the Benghazi attack,” one of her top legal advisers said in an interview. “Obama wanted her to say that the attack had been a spontaneous demonstration triggered by an obscure video on the Internet that demeaned the Prophet Mohammed.”

This adviser continued: “Hillary told Obama, ‘Mr. President, that story isn’t credible. Among other things, it ignores the fact that the attack occurred on 9/11.’ But the president was adamant. He said, ‘Hillary, I need you to put out a State Department release as soon as possible.’”

After her conversation with the president, Hillary called Bill Clinton, who was at his penthouse apartment in the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, and told him what Obama wanted her to do.

“I’m sick about it,” she said, according to the legal adviser, who was filled in on the conversation.

“That story won’t hold up,” Bill said.

“I know,” Hillary said. “I told the president that.”

“It’s an impossible story,” Bill said. “I can’t believe the president is claiming it wasn’t terrorism. Then again, maybe I can. It looks like Obama isn’t going to allow anyone to say that terrorism has occurred on his watch.”

Hillary’s legal adviser provided further detail:

“During their phone call, Bill started playing with various doomsday scenarios, up to and including the idea that Hillary consider resigning as secretary of state over the issue. But both he and Hillary quickly agreed that resigning wasn’t a realistic option. If her resignation hurt Obama’s chances of winning re-election, her fellow Democrats would never forgive her. Hillary was already thinking of running for president in 2016, and her political future, as well as Obama’s, hung in the balance.”

Obama had put Hillary in a corner, and she and Bill didn’t see a way out. And so, shortly after 10 o’clock on the night of September 11, she released an official statement that blamed the Benghazi attack on an “inflammatory posted on the Internet.”

The Benghazi Deception was in full swing.

Pentagon chief says terrorists responsible for attack on U.S. ambassador

WASHINGTON, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) — U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta on Thursday confirmed the U.S. side considers the attack that killed the country’s ambassador to Libya a terrorist act, but an ongoing FBI investigation must determine which group was responsible for the deaths of ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

Panetta said at a Pentagon news briefing that the reason it was considered a terrorist attack was because “a group of terrorists obviously conducted that attack on the consulate and against our individuals.”

“What terrorists were involved I think still remains to be determined by the investigation. But it clearly was a group of terrorists who conducted that attack against that facility,” said Panetta.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Martin Dempsey, who appeared alongside Panetta at the briefing, said the U.S. side has intelligence that al-Qaida-linked elements in eastern Libya were seeking to coalesce, but he was not aware of any specific threat to the consulate before the attack.

The White House has said the Obama administration considers the attack on the Benghazi consulate in Libya on Sept. 11 a terrorist attack.
