Or was it Europe after all?
State Department officials had said that Mrs. Clinton fainted when she was at home alone in Washington but added that the concussion was not diagnosed immediately.
Apparently, the Secretary of State is now hospitalized with a blood clot in a vein between her brain and skull behind her right ear. Not life threatening, or so we are told ( a disclaimer that must be applied to any Obama Administration communique, alas...).
Just what the fuck is the Benghazi Bunch up to here?
I've said little in these pages about Ms. Clinton's illness/injuries, mostly because I've found the whole thing so odd. Very coincidental (but still possible) if true, utterly "banana republic-style" should she pop up hale and hearty once the Benghazi business had been swept conveniently under the rug.
But certain rumors now must be addressed, especially as Hillary appears to be more seriously ill than we were originally told.
Specifically - was Madame Secretary on a secret mission to negotiate (surrender?) with the Iranian mullahs when her plane crashed, killing a top Navy Seal in the process, one whose death is being smeared and covered up?
That's what they are saying...in Europe. From the EU Times:
A new Foreign Military Intelligence (GRU) report circulating in the Kremlin today is saying that United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was injured, and a top US Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huron military passenger and transport aircraft crash landed nearly 3 weeks ago in the Iranian city of Ahvaz near the Iraqi border.
Iranian intelligence agents quoted in this GRU report confirm that the C-12 Huron aircraft is still in their possession in Ahvaz, but will only admit that the plane was “forced to land because of technical problems”.
The US Navy Seal member reported killed in this bizarre incident, this report says, was indentified as Commander Job W. Price who as a leader of this highly specialized American Special Forces unit protects high-ranking diplomats traveling in Middle Eastern and Asian combat zones.
Curiously, US media reports on Commander Price’s death say it being investigated as a possible suicide as he died from what the American Defense Department describes as “a non-combat related injury”.
Here's the "details", such as they are:
This GRU report, however, states that US military flight logs recorded by Russian air and space forces confirm that Commander Price, and other members of US Navy Seal Team 4, left their base in Urozgan Province, Afghanistan on a flight to US Naval Support Activity Bahrain where they met up with Secretary Clinton and all of them transferred to the C-12 Huron that began a flight path to Baghdad, Iraq.
Within minutes of leaving Bahrain airspace, this report says, the C-12 Huron carrying Secretary Clinton and her US Navy Seal protectors, “without notice,” deviated from their assigned flight path heading, instead, directly towards Iran’s Ahwaz International Airport where, coincidentally, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had previously landed on an “unscheduled” visit.
Important to note, GRU analysts say in this report, was that when the C-12 Huron entered into Iranian airspace neither American nor Iran air force units responded clearly indicating that this secret mission was sanctioned.
Upon the C-12 Huron landing at Ahwaz, however, this report says it encountered “extreme turbulence” causing it to leave the runway where its main landing gear then collapsed causing it to crash.
Within seconds of the C-12 Huron crashing, this report continues, Iranian emergency and security personal responded freeing the victims, including Secretary Clinton who was reportedly unconscious and “bleeding profusely.”
Well, certainly this would have given her the infamous concussion. And blunt impact trauma can often cause blood clots that show up some time later.
This little tidbit showed up yesterday...a story out of Iran, reported by ABC (who takes pains to point out elsewhere they reported this story "more than two weeks ago". Also interesting...)
A small American commercial plane left Iran Sunday after it was repaired following an emergency landing at an Iranian airport this month, state TV reported.
The plane was forced to land 16 days ago at the airport of the southern city of Ahvaz due to technical failure, Mahmoud Rasoulinejad, head of the state-owned Iran Airports Company, told the TV station.
"So my plane is scheduled to land right here..."
Rasoulinejad said three passengers left Iran for Arab countries in the Gulf, but the plane remained under repair in the airport. He said the plane took off from Iran Sunday upon arrival of needed spare parts and completion of repairs.
It was not clear why the announcement of the plane's landing was not made earlier...
Oh, I can think of a lot of reasons.
It sounds so fantastical...but remember, these are the same people who allowed diplomats and security guards to be slaughtered in their Libyan consulate, lied about it, jailed an America in California for allegedly "provoking" the attacks, then blamed Republicans for making the event "political". The media, in deference to their preferred party, refused to cover the story at all, and the Benghazi Bunch got away with murder.
More on this shortly...
UPDATE: Some questions raised about the veracity of this story in the comments below, but more interestingly...did Hillary Clinton have a stroke? Or does Hillary - as the National Enquirer claims - have a brain tumor? The Althouse link has a number of differing opinions as well...
UPDATE II: Picked up by DEBKA, I see....there are reputation issues there as well, of course, but DEBKA has often called Middle East action light-years beofre the so-called experts. Point it, the story is out there...
UPDATE III: It seems as if even the mainstream media is in "WTF?" mode...
