With Friends like this, who needs enemies?

First, you must see the "Opening Statement" by Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News as it pertains to the recently release Congressional Investigation in the terror attack in Benghazi.  The Honorable Judge Pirro is a former prosecutor that lays the facts bare for the American public on the "criminal negligence" of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  The report really doesn't tell us much that we, the American public already knew or felt to be because the deaths of our fellow Americans on the anniversary of 9/11 in 2012 could only have been one thing and one thing only.  A terror attack and not some spontaneous demonstration over a video.  It was on 9/11.

Here is the video, commentary to follow:

Here is the complete report compiled that the bi-partisan Senate Committee submitted:

Senate Intelligence Committee Report on Benghazi

Here are some excerpts from the report:

"Following the 2009 Executive order to close Guantanamo, there has been a concerted effort by this Administration to downplay the recidivist activities of former Guantanamo detainees in support of its overtly political goal to transfer as many detainees as possible to foreign countries and even to the United States.  Listening to supporters of this ill-advised Executive order, one would believe that former detainees have universally rejected their terrorist associations and are now living peaceably throughout the world.  The facts say otherwise.  The recidivism rate among all former detainees is now over 29% and rising consistently."

"Many of us were frustrated and astounded by the great pains the Administration took after the fact to avoid the clear linkage to what happened in Benghazi to the threat of international terrorism.  The Fort Hood terrorist attack by Nidal Hassan was labeled "workplace violence," despite Hasan's email communications with al-Qa'ida in the Arabian Peninsula cleric, Anwar al-Aulaqi, in the months before he open fire, killing 13 and wounding 32 military and civilian personnel, in 2009.  Another Aulaqi protégé "Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, was treated as an ordinary criminal and given Miranda warnings, despite being captured after failing to detonate plastic explosives aboard a Northwest airlines flight over Detroit on December 25, 2009.  Then there was Faisal Shahzad, the incompetent Times Square bomber, whose car bomb failed to detonate in May 2010,  The Administration tried to spin Shahzad as a "one-off" lone wolf until the media discovered he had travelled to Pakistan for 5 months and trained with the Pakistan Taliban.  As with Benghazi, the Administration's obligation to provide information to Congress about those cases seem to be superseded by a desire to script the message that al-Qa'ida had been decimated or to protect a criminal investigation in spite of equally vital intelligence prerogatives."

Again, all of this disturbing information compiled by the committee has been known or at least felt by most Americans that this Administration's zeal to end the war on terror and protect us from those who wish to do us mortal harm is sleigh of hand misinformation.  The one thing that this Federal Government IS constitutionally responsible for (it's duty) is to protect the citizens from harm both foreign and domestically.  When this Administration intentionally gives aid and comfort to terror that results in loss of human life, American life, then they have failed to uphold their solemn duty.  But, to do so with malice and forethought is criminally negligent, as the Honorable Judge Jeanine states.

So, when Hillary went before the American people the day the bodies came back home and she declared Ambassador Stevens a "close and personal friend" it comes to the question -- "With friends like Hillary, who needs enemies?"
