I loved to dance mom put me in ballet classes before -- can barely walk.
I tap my way in and out of more recitals for years they have -- -- step shuffle ball change.
But there is one woman who can really dance she didn't do -- two step better than anyone.
That woman Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Hello and welcome to justice I'm judge -- -- Piero.
This week four and a half months after -- -- Hillary Clinton sets the record straight.
Or should I say did the Washington sidestep.
You mean they -- I -- this week.
Let's start with -- Hillary's response to that pesky question about the video protest.
The fact is we have four dead Americans what I got it right protest it was a because of guys out for a walk when not -- decide they don't kill some Americans.
What difference at this point does it make.
What difference does it make it makes a difference to pat Smith still waiting to find out -- -- -- died.
It would have made a huge difference to ambassador Stevens hadn't been warned to prepare for an attack as a result of a video inciting violence in the region.
It makes -- difference to that alone -- sitting in jail for making the video which you blame the murders on.
You spoke with Hillary Clinton what did -- tell.
We are going to arrest the person that made that film and we're gonna -- prosecuted.
And if it didn't make a difference.
Why did you use our taxpayers' money to apologize to the Arab world for the video.
The United States government had absolutely.
Nothing to do with this video.
-- -- its contents.
And by the way your right it would not have made a difference if it hadn't misled us about it in the first place.
By the way did any of you guys out there actually hear her answer the question about the video.
My love to do.
Now we know 25 to thirty people were evacuated from bank Gaza.
Here's Hillary's answer to whether or not she tried to find out from them look what happened.
I waited until after the anybody raising the issue that I had spoken to anyone before the are conducted its investigative -- Really since it was no mention of an accountability review board until eight days after the massacre.
You're saying that for those eight days you did not try to find out what happened at the console it.
Oh yeah I forgot you didn't have to ask what happened you were watching it in real time right.
There was no real time we got the surveillance videos some weeks later that was the first time we saw any video do you have a you got the surveillance tapes weeks later.
No carrier -- since.
And I guess Charlene -- your deputy assistant secretary of state lied when she testified quote.
I could follow in real time what was going on from the command center.
The secretary of defense the top military brass and anyone -- access to a secure phone Weiner computer could follow that.
And what about that August 16 cable that was personally signed by ambassador Stephen's team new.
Foreshadowing not only how they would die but the very groups that would kill them.
-- need for more security and the suggestion that they may be the consulate should be closed.
What's that you didn't get the cable.
Well this is how it works when they saving need help the enemy as close and they want to come home.
Your job is to get them that helped.
So here's what makes it's so sad though you know who to believe for Stephens when he asked for help that's why -- sent -- there.
That's why I sent.
Chris Stevens to Ben Ghazi in the first place.
Nobody knew the dangers better than Chris.
First during the revolution then during the transition.
A week Libyan government.
He was your friend working in a place where everyone back danger pay.
It was the anniversary of 9/11 and you don't even look at his plea for help.
I'm not aware of anyone within my office within the secretary's office -- having seen the cable.
But of course you were busy.
It turned out we had.
People getting over that wall and pyro doing damage until we got them out we had a serious threat against our embassy in tunis the call the president.
Of Tunisia and -- -- to send reinforcements.
Which he did.
To finally save our embassy which could have been a disaster.
What about we're really was a disaster no one died in Tunisia.
There was more than a threat against our consulate in Ben -- There was an ambassador and one other already dead and it had seven hours succumbed to the aid of -- woods England Jordy.
But at least you were clear -- about your mission.
If you're clear why did Europe department reject the request for sixteen additional security agents.
You're clear -- Shouldn't you have known that there was no real Libyan government to turn to if you're clear -- -- -- -- -- that al-Qaeda roam freely in and around in -- where -- clear that when the -- left -- -- Because they had.
What your best -- -- in this stance we call politics was your answer about why you weren't interviewed regarding the actions of the State Department.
If they had thought that I was relevant or had information that would -- help the investigation I would have gladly.
Discuss that with them at their request.
-- -- they know you didn't have relevant information.
Tell you what ahead of us Department of State.
The secretary of state you were in the situation room you met the coffins.
You told look mom what was the video.
You accepted responsibility.
Now why weren't enough grand juries to know that I don't know what you have information on what I get to in the grand jury and ask if you have information.
But then again.
You appointed the investigators.
Okay -- you couldn't talk because of the investigation that you called for and then you didn't have to talk because of the investigators that you appointed.
It's the perfect to step.
And I've been president at that time I was relieved you of your post.
But the good news we come out of this as you say wind lessons learned.
But we already learned these lessons in the nineteen accountability review boards over the last 25 years.
So when they end the dance continues.
All the way to 16100.
