Clinton Speculation: Hillary Accused of Faking Concussion to Avoid Benghazi Testimony

by at . Comments

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton recently fainted and suffered a concussion, which has critics of this fall's debacle in Benghazi, Libya, crying foul.

Some even suggested that Clinton faked it to avoid potentially embarrassing testimony, but this has been slammed by aides as “wild speculation.”

Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State

Former United Nations envoy John Bolton was ripped by the State Department today for speculation that Hillary Clinton may have pulled a fast one.

Bolton speculated on Fox News that Clinton’s claim of fainting and suffering a concussion amounts to what foreign service officers call a “diplomatic illness.”

“This is a ‘diplomatic illness’ to beat the band,” said Bolton, who served under George W. Bush.

“I mean, I hope it’s nothing serious. But this thing was revealed in a way that I think was not transparent and I think there is an obligation here.”

State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland blasted the Clinton speculation Tuesday, calling Bolton’s “diplomatic illness” accusation “completely untrue.”

“I can assure you, he’s not privy to any inside information,” Nuland said, calling Bolton’s criticism “wild speculation based on no information.”

She also reported that Clinton is currently “on the mend.”

Still, Clinton speculation in the media is at an all-time high, with many noting that her “diplomatic illness” is at the very least conveniently timed.

The Benghazi attack resulted in the death of four Americans and a lot of finger-pointing about who in the administration knew what and when.

Scandal or no scandal, it represents one of the few blemishes on Clinton's record as the nation's top diplomat, and one she'd just as soon not revisit.

The New York Post called it “one of the most transparent dodges in the history of diplomacy,” and The Daily Caller called for a medical report.

What do you think of the Clinton speculation: Is Bolton right-on with his “diplomatic illness” claim, or is it just a case of bad timing (and falling)?

She may just be too busy running the world ...

What's Up Hillary?

If the American people buy this crap then they deserve the Communism that Obama is getting ready to install. Hillary and Obama watched these 4 people die versus fighting the Muslim Brotherhood because Obama is a Muslim.

Well of course she's faking it. She's always faked it. She is nothing buy Obozo's tool. I want to see her head on a platter for watching as 4 of our people died and she (nor the president) did anything about it.
