Will Republicans apologize for accusing Hillary Clinton of faking her concussion?

The secretary of state has been admitted to the hospital for a potentially serious blood clot

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to New York-Presbyterian Hospital to undergo treatment for a blood clot, a potentially serious condition stemming from a concussion she suffered earlier this month. Aides say that Clinton, 65, is currently being treated with blood thinners, and that further action may be required to prevent the clot from worsening. In a worst-case scenario, the clot, if located in the head, could cause a brain hemorrhage.

The concussion forced Clinton to cancel weeks' worth of engagements, including scheduled testimony before Congress on the terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans. Republicans have been highly critical of President Obama's response to Benghazi, with many suggesting that the administration tried to cover up the incident. Clinton's illness prompted several conservative commentators and prominent members of the GOP to speculate that she was faking her concussion to avoid testifying. John Bolton, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, described Clinton's condition as a "diplomatic illness." Ousted Rep. Allen West (Fla.) said, "I'm not a doctor, but it seems as though — that the secretary of state has come down with a case of Benghazi flu." Charles Krauthammer, the influential conservative columnist, told Sean Hannity of Fox News that Clinton had likely come down with "acute Benghazi allergy," which led Hannity to respond, "Let's see the medical report on that." Other conservative news outlets also demanded a medical report.

Now that Clinton's condition has taken a more worrisome turn, will these Republicans offer their apologies? "I'm not holding my breath," says PBS's Jeff Greenfield. The fake Clinton concussion will probably join a long list of conservative conspiracy theories that, despite overwhelming evidence to contrary, continue to thrive in certain corners of the GOP (see: Obama was born in Kenya, the polls are skewed, et al.). Indeed, it's just as likely that the fake Clinton concussion will morphinto the fake Clinton blood clot.

I thought blood clots were the symptoms of serious dehydration and/or laying in one position for too long and not concussions? But what do I know? Thank God you are all doctors.

I've seen a couple of strange stories regarding this concussion today.

One was that she was shot in the head when visitng the Syrian-Turkish border.

Here is another strange report:

Clinton Injured, US Navy Seal Killed In Secret US Mission To Iran

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 topUS Navy Seal Commander killed when their C-12 Huronmilitary 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 [photo 3rd right] 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”.

Equally as curious, US media reports state that Secretary Clinton will return to work next week after her having suffered what they describe as a “nasty bout with stomach flu” and a “concussion” which have kept her missing from public view the past three weeks.

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 SealTeam 4, left their base in Urozgan Province, Afghanistan on 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 herUS 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.”

After emergency aid was given, GRU agents stationed in Iran state that another US military flight was dispatched from Bahrain to Ahwaz which evacuated all of those wounded and killed in the crash including Secretary Clinton.

Strangely to note, this report says, is that in the aftermath of this crash, Iran’s main announced today that they were buying the Ahwaz airport with the intention of moving it because, they say, oil was discovered beneath it.

To what the Americans mission to Iran was about this report doesn’t speculate upon, other than to note that with the Gulf State Monarchies rapidly approaching a union of their oil rich nations to counter Iranian power, and with President Obama signing a new law this past week to strengthen American borders against threats from Iran, and with the highly-publicized “Velayat 91” Iranian military now taking place across a wide area from the Strait of Hormuz, a new and catastrophic war in this region is much closer to being a reality than many realize.

To if Secretary Clinton’s mission was meant to forestall such a war it is not in our knowing, other than to note, that with the United States continued backing of some of the cruelest dictatorships in the world, our entire planet is but one spark away from a fire that could very well consume us all.

As a Lefty hater, Hillary is my exception. I have always had nothing but respect for Hillary. Probably the hardest working woman in US politics.

She's tough when she needs to be, patriotic, humorous, intelligent and extremely qualified. The opposite of Obama.

The libs picked the wrong leader. Hillary would have cleaned house by the second year of her first term had she been chosen. Instead of now being on the brink of going down the toilet with smooth talking Barry.

But that is America for you. Flash over substance.

Thank God our Prime Minister is not Liberal or we'd be all on the brink of collapse like most countries instead of where we are now....Recongnized as one of the best countries in the world.

Iraq was a very bi-partisan effort..

Hillary would have done pretty much the exact same thing as Obama -- run up the deficit, brought in the same Goldman Sachs-esque insiders to her cabinet, made a mess of a healthcare bill.. while I agree with a portion of your post, I don't see where Hillary would have done things differently.

Hillary would not have procrastinated until the last minute. That is her nature.

What did Barry do knowing full well years in advance of the Bush era tax cuts were expiring? Campaigning Hard, Partying hard overseas with human rights violating countries, partying hard at fund raisers, pandering with toy factories, pandering with the unions. Days later and days left, start pointing the blame at others and the opposition for not having something figured out.

Grossly unqualified and inexperienced. A "Leader"
