Hillary and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad House hearing on Benghazi

Sections of the CBD, including North Tce and King William St, are likely to be locked down for the visit, which was revealed on adelaidenow yesterday.

Planning for the massive operation to protect the second most powerful woman in the world has been under way for the past week.

US embassy officials and security specialists have been working with Australian Federal Police, senior SA Police and STAR Group officers to plan the operation…

…While Ms Clinton will be protected at close quarters by her own US Secret Service detail, dozens of AFP protection officers and STAR Group officers will be involved in protecting her motorcade and any venues she visits.

Police are also likely to use helicopter [ no drones? ] surveillance to monitor her every move…

    At first I was thinking a trip to Libya or somewhere in that neighborhood, not Australia. It’s like going to your brother’s house and locking his kids in their rooms.

    Valerie and Hillary could always settle the issue by counting the number in their Secret Service details.

    And just think, Hillary is one of the least radical thugs in this administration. Wait until you see the rogues gallery up before the Senate in the coming months!*

    *and yes, the senate Repubs will rollover and play dead.

    They need the surveillance to watch out for any generals that might hit on her.

    Oh, wait, she’s not going to CENTCOM. She’s safe then.

    Or maybe she is receiving so much cover because they don’t trust her and want to keep their eyes on her. Just a thought. How much love is there between this administration and Hillary?

    With the Petraeus scandal eclipsing coverage of Libya, getting Hillary out of town during the hearings will serve to further dilute the attention.

    Yeah, this all makes me kind of sick. Not only was the return of the dead a photo op, now they’re *mocking* them.
